There’s been a lot of accusations thrown around in the past few years regarding the impact that a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is having on the gut health of those who choose to eat this way. It’s been especially strong from various vocal members of the Paleo community who have been promoting the consumption of the so-called “safe starches” and other such foods to feed the good bacteria in the gut. But some of the suggestions that have been made don’t sit well with a Walnut Creek, California-based functional medicine practitioner named Dr. Michael Ruscio who understands the need for patient individuality in treatment and that customizing a plan to take care of the microbiome while also being mindful of blood sugar and other health markers is critically important to making sure the patient is doing the right thing for them.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ruscio discuss his current work doing a pilot research study on small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), why having a SIBO is a bad thing for your health, what causes SIBO to happen, the prevalence of SIBO in our society, why doctors push grains for fiber to treat IBS, the pressure on low-carbers to eat more carbohydrates to feed gut bacteria, whether you can measure for how you can find if you do better on low-carb vs. high-carb, the carbohydrates that he recommends for people who want to tinker and test with increasing, the allergen-restricted, lower-carb diet he puts all of his patients on initially, the spectrum of low to high carb diets he uses to customize treatment for his patients, why mimicking the diet of populations with healthy microbiota is flawed, the microbiota is a reactor to the environment rather than the driver of the disease, why eating to control blood sugar is the best way to prevent disease, what kind of carbohydrates (and prebiotic as well as FODMAP foods) a ketogenic dieter can consume, the problems with uBiome and American Gut Project testing, the connection between gut health and autoimmune disease, why you need to know your fungal readings, how sleep and exercise can have a dramatic effect on your microbiota, why you don’t need fancy stool testing to get good results, the small intestinal fungal overgrowth (SIFO) issue, and whether fecal transplants can be useful to people with damaged gut health.

It seems the more conventional medicine tries to deal with the chronic diseases of our modern day, the more stark their failure at getting to the root causes of these health problems appears. That’s why there has been a rise in the number of Functional Medicine practitioners in recent years attempting to correct these errors and helping patients truly find a pathway back to health again. That’s the heart soul of a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based Functional Medicine practitioner and clinical nutritionist named Dr. Will Cole. He sees patients in person in the Pittsburgh area as well as via telephone or Skype around the world to help them with a wide variety of common health problems with a customized solution tailored just for them.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Cole discuss the major differences between the way Functional Medicine and Conventional Medicine handle health problems, how the labs and analysis of functional medicine doctors is different, the lack of knowledge from standard doctors regarding what to do with autoimmune disease, the problem with only looking at TSH to determine overall thyroid health, the carbohydrate connection to diabetes, and so much more! If you’re fed up with the mainstream medicine approach to treating your health, then you won’t want to miss this special interview with Dr. Cole.

After spending the past few weeks sharing interviews with the various experts featured in Jimmy Moore’s new book Keto Clarity, we’re back to our regular podcast schedule again and we welcome in someone who Jimmy first featured back in Episode 589 when she was just getting her name out there in the Paleo health blogosphere. Her name is Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD who has quite the story to tell about how she got into looking at the role of nutrition as a major player in optimizing health. She spent four years conducting research on innate immunity and inflammation, but decided to become a stay-at-home mom to raise her family. It was during this time at home that Sarah discovered she was dealing with an autoimmune inflammatory skin condition known as Lichen Planus as well as irritable bowel syndrome and allergies and that’s when she turned to the Paleo diet which helped her heal these conditions and set her on the path to becoming the author of two books on the subject: her New York Times bestseller from early 2014 called The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body and her brand new companion book of recipes entitled The Paleo Approach Cookbook: A Detailed Guide to Heal Your Body and Nourish Your Soul.

WATCH DR. SARAH BALLANTYNE’S #AHS14 LECTURE

“Ancestral Health for Women” – Sarah Ballantyne & Stacy Toth
If you watch the above video from the 2014 Ancestral Health Symposium (#AHS14) that took place in Berkeley, California in August, then you will see the presentation that instigated Jimmy to invite Sarah on to the show for an interview. During that lecture she conducted with Stacy Toth from the “Paleo Parents” blog, there were claims made about low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets that were less-than-flattering about this way of eating. Because we like to have conversations about nutrition and health here at “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” podcast, Jimmy invited her on to state her case so that the listeners could then decide whether or not her points were valid. Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about the moment she found out her book hit the New York Times bestsellers list for the first time, why she released two books in the same year, why she thinks the Paleo message has taken off in recent years, how Paleo has evolved since it first became popularized, why her response to a ketogenic diet is “no, but,” her primary objections for women, especially of childbearing age, to be reducing their carbohydrate intake, her concerns about thyroid and gut health without the use of carbohydrates, the layout of the recipes in her new book, and a whole lot more! Because Jimmy and Sarah are friends, this is a friendly yet super-engaging debate of ideas you won’t want to miss.

What’s been your favorite interview from the BRAND NEW INTERVIEWS featuring most of the 22 featured experts in our host Jimmy Moore and his coauthor Dr. Eric Westman’s new book Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet? We’ve worked hard to share quality conversations with the biggest names who know and understand all the intricacies of low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic living. The “Moment Of Clarity” quotes from these experts sprinkled all through Keto Clarity are one of the most unique features in the book that you just won’t find in other books. And you get to hear from a few more of them the rest of this week and next week!

Today’s Keto Clarity expert interview is with one of the founding fathers of the modern low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet community in Dr. Ron Rosedale. He founded the first metabolic medicine center in the United States in 1996 in Asheville, North Carolina and has had an interest in metabolic medicine for decades. Dr. Rosedale is a pioneer in applying concepts based on the biology of aging to reversing diabetes and heart disease through a nutritional approach that he developed to improve the cell function. His classic 2004 book The Rosedale Diet outlines the key nutritional approach that has become a standard bearer for the healthy way to doing a low-carb diet successfully. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Rosedale have an incredible one-on-one discussion of why he favors a low-carb, high-fat description of the diet rather than ketogenic, why having higher levels of ketones in the blood isn’t necessarily a good thing, the wrong way to boost ketone levels, the folly of ketogenic diet opponents who point to thyroid and gut health issues as a problem, and a whole lot more! This is quite the engaging Keto Clarity expert conversation with one of the leaders in the field.

Imagine for a moment that you’ve prepared yourself for a promising career in the field of medicine by taking the traditional route of medical school to learn about the latest developments in surgical and pharmaceutical protocols for making people well. But then you observe first-hand what this model of health looks like up close and personal and you realize the tremendous shortcomings this has to offer people in regards to real solutions to their greatest health concerns. That’s exactly what happened to Dr. Justin Marchegiani who decided his time and energy would be much better spent helping people reverse the effects of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. That’s when his mindset changed from traditional medicine to more of a holistic, natural health approach to get to the root problem of health issues rather than simply covering them up with medications.

He got doctorate degree in chiropractic medicine and now practices in San Francisco, California area at the Just In Health Wellness Clinic. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Marchegiani talk about this journey to holistic medicine, why being a holistic doctor helps his patients get better through nutrition and lifestyle rather than medicine and surgeries, the common problems he is seeing in patients such as thyroid hormone imbalances, female hormone imbalances, and chronic infections, what he does to get to the root cause of these issues, how a low-carb diet fits within the nutritional protocol for improving the health of most of his patients, his own battle with an autoimmune thyroid issue and the research that led him to, why some people struggle even eating a low-carb and/or Paleo diet, the massive impact that stress plays on your health, and so much more! Dr. Marchegiani has lived it and is now helping his patients get well without the need for drugs. This is the future of healthcare and the prudent medical professionals are moving to a template like the one Dr. Marchegiani is using.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ruscio discuss his current work doing a pilot research study on small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), why having a SIBO is a bad thing for your health, what causes SIBO to happen, the prevalence of SIBO in our society, why doctors push grains for fiber to treat IBS, the pressure on low-carbers to eat more carbohydrates to feed gut bacteria, whether you can measure for how you can find if you do better on low-carb vs. high-carb, the carbohydrates that he recommends for people who want to tinker and test with increasing, the allergen-restricted, lower-carb diet he puts all of his patients on initially, the spectrum of low to high carb diets he uses to customize treatment for his patients, why mimicking the diet of populations with healthy microbiota is flawed, the microbiota is a reactor to the environment rather than the driver of the disease, why eating to control blood sugar is the best way to prevent disease, what kind of carbohydrates (and prebiotic as well as FODMAP foods) a ketogenic dieter can consume, the problems with uBiome and American Gut Project testing, the connection between gut health and autoimmune disease, why you need to know your fungal readings, how sleep and exercise can have a dramatic effect on your microbiota, why you don’t need fancy stool testing to get good results, the small intestinal fungal overgrowth (SIFO) issue, and whether fecal transplants can be useful to people with damaged gut health.

It seems the more conventional medicine tries to deal with the chronic diseases of our modern day, the more stark their failure at getting to the root causes of these health problems appears. That’s why there has been a rise in the number of Functional Medicine practitioners in recent years attempting to correct these errors and helping patients truly find a pathway back to health again. That’s the heart soul of a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based Functional Medicine practitioner and clinical nutritionist named Dr. Will Cole. He sees patients in person in the Pittsburgh area as well as via telephone or Skype around the world to help them with a wide variety of common health problems with a customized solution tailored just for them.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Cole discuss the major differences between the way Functional Medicine and Conventional Medicine handle health problems, how the labs and analysis of functional medicine doctors is different, the lack of knowledge from standard doctors regarding what to do with autoimmune disease, the problem with only looking at TSH to determine overall thyroid health, the carbohydrate connection to diabetes, and so much more! If you’re fed up with the mainstream medicine approach to treating your health, then you won’t want to miss this special interview with Dr. Cole.

After spending the past few weeks sharing interviews with the various experts featured in Jimmy Moore’s new book Keto Clarity, we’re back to our regular podcast schedule again and we welcome in someone who Jimmy first featured back in Episode 589 when she was just getting her name out there in the Paleo health blogosphere. Her name is Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD who has quite the story to tell about how she got into looking at the role of nutrition as a major player in optimizing health. She spent four years conducting research on innate immunity and inflammation, but decided to become a stay-at-home mom to raise her family. It was during this time at home that Sarah discovered she was dealing with an autoimmune inflammatory skin condition known as Lichen Planus as well as irritable bowel syndrome and allergies and that’s when she turned to the Paleo diet which helped her heal these conditions and set her on the path to becoming the author of two books on the subject: her New York Times bestseller from early 2014 called The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body and her brand new companion book of recipes entitled The Paleo Approach Cookbook: A Detailed Guide to Heal Your Body and Nourish Your Soul.

WATCH DR. SARAH BALLANTYNE’S #AHS14 LECTURE

“Ancestral Health for Women” – Sarah Ballantyne & Stacy Toth
If you watch the above video from the 2014 Ancestral Health Symposium (#AHS14) that took place in Berkeley, California in August, then you will see the presentation that instigated Jimmy to invite Sarah on to the show for an interview. During that lecture she conducted with Stacy Toth from the “Paleo Parents” blog, there were claims made about low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets that were less-than-flattering about this way of eating. Because we like to have conversations about nutrition and health here at “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” podcast, Jimmy invited her on to state her case so that the listeners could then decide whether or not her points were valid. Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about the moment she found out her book hit the New York Times bestsellers list for the first time, why she released two books in the same year, why she thinks the Paleo message has taken off in recent years, how Paleo has evolved since it first became popularized, why her response to a ketogenic diet is “no, but,” her primary objections for women, especially of childbearing age, to be reducing their carbohydrate intake, her concerns about thyroid and gut health without the use of carbohydrates, the layout of the recipes in her new book, and a whole lot more! Because Jimmy and Sarah are friends, this is a friendly yet super-engaging debate of ideas you won’t want to miss.

What’s been your favorite interview from the BRAND NEW INTERVIEWS featuring most of the 22 featured experts in our host Jimmy Moore and his coauthor Dr. Eric Westman’s new book Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet? We’ve worked hard to share quality conversations with the biggest names who know and understand all the intricacies of low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic living. The “Moment Of Clarity” quotes from these experts sprinkled all through Keto Clarity are one of the most unique features in the book that you just won’t find in other books. And you get to hear from a few more of them the rest of this week and next week!

Today’s Keto Clarity expert interview is with one of the founding fathers of the modern low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet community in Dr. Ron Rosedale. He founded the first metabolic medicine center in the United States in 1996 in Asheville, North Carolina and has had an interest in metabolic medicine for decades. Dr. Rosedale is a pioneer in applying concepts based on the biology of aging to reversing diabetes and heart disease through a nutritional approach that he developed to improve the cell function. His classic 2004 book The Rosedale Diet outlines the key nutritional approach that has become a standard bearer for the healthy way to doing a low-carb diet successfully. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Rosedale have an incredible one-on-one discussion of why he favors a low-carb, high-fat description of the diet rather than ketogenic, why having higher levels of ketones in the blood isn’t necessarily a good thing, the wrong way to boost ketone levels, the folly of ketogenic diet opponents who point to thyroid and gut health issues as a problem, and a whole lot more! This is quite the engaging Keto Clarity expert conversation with one of the leaders in the field.

Imagine for a moment that you’ve prepared yourself for a promising career in the field of medicine by taking the traditional route of medical school to learn about the latest developments in surgical and pharmaceutical protocols for making people well. But then you observe first-hand what this model of health looks like up close and personal and you realize the tremendous shortcomings this has to offer people in regards to real solutions to their greatest health concerns. That’s exactly what happened to Dr. Justin Marchegiani who decided his time and energy would be much better spent helping people reverse the effects of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. That’s when his mindset changed from traditional medicine to more of a holistic, natural health approach to get to the root problem of health issues rather than simply covering them up with medications.

He got doctorate degree in chiropractic medicine and now practices in San Francisco, California area at the Just In Health Wellness Clinic. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Marchegiani talk about this journey to holistic medicine, why being a holistic doctor helps his patients get better through nutrition and lifestyle rather than medicine and surgeries, the common problems he is seeing in patients such as thyroid hormone imbalances, female hormone imbalances, and chronic infections, what he does to get to the root cause of these issues, how a low-carb diet fits within the nutritional protocol for improving the health of most of his patients, his own battle with an autoimmune thyroid issue and the research that led him to, why some people struggle even eating a low-carb and/or Paleo diet, the massive impact that stress plays on your health, and so much more! Dr. Marchegiani has lived it and is now helping his patients get well without the need for drugs. This is the future of healthcare and the prudent medical professionals are moving to a template like the one Dr. Marchegiani is using.

It seems the more conventional medicine tries to deal with the chronic diseases of our modern day, the more stark their failure at getting to the root causes of these health problems appears. That’s why there has been a rise in the number of Functional Medicine practitioners in recent years attempting to correct these errors and helping patients truly find a pathway back to health again. That’s the heart soul of a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based Functional Medicine practitioner and clinical nutritionist named Dr. Will Cole. He sees patients in person in the Pittsburgh area as well as via telephone or Skype around the world to help them with a wide variety of common health problems with a customized solution tailored just for them.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Cole discuss the major differences between the way Functional Medicine and Conventional Medicine handle health problems, how the labs and analysis of functional medicine doctors is different, the lack of knowledge from standard doctors regarding what to do with autoimmune disease, the problem with only looking at TSH to determine overall thyroid health, the carbohydrate connection to diabetes, and so much more! If you’re fed up with the mainstream medicine approach to treating your health, then you won’t want to miss this special interview with Dr. Cole.

After spending the past few weeks sharing interviews with the various experts featured in Jimmy Moore’s new book Keto Clarity, we’re back to our regular podcast schedule again and we welcome in someone who Jimmy first featured back in Episode 589 when she was just getting her name out there in the Paleo health blogosphere. Her name is Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD who has quite the story to tell about how she got into looking at the role of nutrition as a major player in optimizing health. She spent four years conducting research on innate immunity and inflammation, but decided to become a stay-at-home mom to raise her family. It was during this time at home that Sarah discovered she was dealing with an autoimmune inflammatory skin condition known as Lichen Planus as well as irritable bowel syndrome and allergies and that’s when she turned to the Paleo diet which helped her heal these conditions and set her on the path to becoming the author of two books on the subject: her New York Times bestseller from early 2014 called The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body and her brand new companion book of recipes entitled The Paleo Approach Cookbook: A Detailed Guide to Heal Your Body and Nourish Your Soul.

WATCH DR. SARAH BALLANTYNE’S #AHS14 LECTURE

“Ancestral Health for Women” – Sarah Ballantyne & Stacy Toth
If you watch the above video from the 2014 Ancestral Health Symposium (#AHS14) that took place in Berkeley, California in August, then you will see the presentation that instigated Jimmy to invite Sarah on to the show for an interview. During that lecture she conducted with Stacy Toth from the “Paleo Parents” blog, there were claims made about low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets that were less-than-flattering about this way of eating. Because we like to have conversations about nutrition and health here at “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” podcast, Jimmy invited her on to state her case so that the listeners could then decide whether or not her points were valid. Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about the moment she found out her book hit the New York Times bestsellers list for the first time, why she released two books in the same year, why she thinks the Paleo message has taken off in recent years, how Paleo has evolved since it first became popularized, why her response to a ketogenic diet is “no, but,” her primary objections for women, especially of childbearing age, to be reducing their carbohydrate intake, her concerns about thyroid and gut health without the use of carbohydrates, the layout of the recipes in her new book, and a whole lot more! Because Jimmy and Sarah are friends, this is a friendly yet super-engaging debate of ideas you won’t want to miss.

What’s been your favorite interview from the BRAND NEW INTERVIEWS featuring most of the 22 featured experts in our host Jimmy Moore and his coauthor Dr. Eric Westman’s new book Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet? We’ve worked hard to share quality conversations with the biggest names who know and understand all the intricacies of low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic living. The “Moment Of Clarity” quotes from these experts sprinkled all through Keto Clarity are one of the most unique features in the book that you just won’t find in other books. And you get to hear from a few more of them the rest of this week and next week!

Today’s Keto Clarity expert interview is with one of the founding fathers of the modern low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet community in Dr. Ron Rosedale. He founded the first metabolic medicine center in the United States in 1996 in Asheville, North Carolina and has had an interest in metabolic medicine for decades. Dr. Rosedale is a pioneer in applying concepts based on the biology of aging to reversing diabetes and heart disease through a nutritional approach that he developed to improve the cell function. His classic 2004 book The Rosedale Diet outlines the key nutritional approach that has become a standard bearer for the healthy way to doing a low-carb diet successfully. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Rosedale have an incredible one-on-one discussion of why he favors a low-carb, high-fat description of the diet rather than ketogenic, why having higher levels of ketones in the blood isn’t necessarily a good thing, the wrong way to boost ketone levels, the folly of ketogenic diet opponents who point to thyroid and gut health issues as a problem, and a whole lot more! This is quite the engaging Keto Clarity expert conversation with one of the leaders in the field.

Imagine for a moment that you’ve prepared yourself for a promising career in the field of medicine by taking the traditional route of medical school to learn about the latest developments in surgical and pharmaceutical protocols for making people well. But then you observe first-hand what this model of health looks like up close and personal and you realize the tremendous shortcomings this has to offer people in regards to real solutions to their greatest health concerns. That’s exactly what happened to Dr. Justin Marchegiani who decided his time and energy would be much better spent helping people reverse the effects of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. That’s when his mindset changed from traditional medicine to more of a holistic, natural health approach to get to the root problem of health issues rather than simply covering them up with medications.

He got doctorate degree in chiropractic medicine and now practices in San Francisco, California area at the Just In Health Wellness Clinic. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Marchegiani talk about this journey to holistic medicine, why being a holistic doctor helps his patients get better through nutrition and lifestyle rather than medicine and surgeries, the common problems he is seeing in patients such as thyroid hormone imbalances, female hormone imbalances, and chronic infections, what he does to get to the root cause of these issues, how a low-carb diet fits within the nutritional protocol for improving the health of most of his patients, his own battle with an autoimmune thyroid issue and the research that led him to, why some people struggle even eating a low-carb and/or Paleo diet, the massive impact that stress plays on your health, and so much more! Dr. Marchegiani has lived it and is now helping his patients get well without the need for drugs. This is the future of healthcare and the prudent medical professionals are moving to a template like the one Dr. Marchegiani is using.

It seems the more conventional medicine tries to deal with the chronic diseases of our modern day, the more stark their failure at getting to the root causes of these health problems appears. That’s why there has been a rise in the number of Functional Medicine practitioners in recent years attempting to correct these errors and helping patients truly find a pathway back to health again. That’s the heart soul of a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based Functional Medicine practitioner and clinical nutritionist named Dr. Will Cole. He sees patients in person in the Pittsburgh area as well as via telephone or Skype around the world to help them with a wide variety of common health problems with a customized solution tailored just for them.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Cole discuss the major differences between the way Functional Medicine and Conventional Medicine handle health problems, how the labs and analysis of functional medicine doctors is different, the lack of knowledge from standard doctors regarding what to do with autoimmune disease, the problem with only looking at TSH to determine overall thyroid health, the carbohydrate connection to diabetes, and so much more! If you’re fed up with the mainstream medicine approach to treating your health, then you won’t want to miss this special interview with Dr. Cole.

After spending the past few weeks sharing interviews with the various experts featured in Jimmy Moore’s new book Keto Clarity, we’re back to our regular podcast schedule again and we welcome in someone who Jimmy first featured back in Episode 589 when she was just getting her name out there in the Paleo health blogosphere. Her name is Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD who has quite the story to tell about how she got into looking at the role of nutrition as a major player in optimizing health. She spent four years conducting research on innate immunity and inflammation, but decided to become a stay-at-home mom to raise her family. It was during this time at home that Sarah discovered she was dealing with an autoimmune inflammatory skin condition known as Lichen Planus as well as irritable bowel syndrome and allergies and that’s when she turned to the Paleo diet which helped her heal these conditions and set her on the path to becoming the author of two books on the subject: her New York Times bestseller from early 2014 called The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body and her brand new companion book of recipes entitled The Paleo Approach Cookbook: A Detailed Guide to Heal Your Body and Nourish Your Soul.

WATCH DR. SARAH BALLANTYNE’S #AHS14 LECTURE

“Ancestral Health for Women” – Sarah Ballantyne & Stacy Toth
If you watch the above video from the 2014 Ancestral Health Symposium (#AHS14) that took place in Berkeley, California in August, then you will see the presentation that instigated Jimmy to invite Sarah on to the show for an interview. During that lecture she conducted with Stacy Toth from the “Paleo Parents” blog, there were claims made about low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets that were less-than-flattering about this way of eating. Because we like to have conversations about nutrition and health here at “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” podcast, Jimmy invited her on to state her case so that the listeners could then decide whether or not her points were valid. Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about the moment she found out her book hit the New York Times bestsellers list for the first time, why she released two books in the same year, why she thinks the Paleo message has taken off in recent years, how Paleo has evolved since it first became popularized, why her response to a ketogenic diet is “no, but,” her primary objections for women, especially of childbearing age, to be reducing their carbohydrate intake, her concerns about thyroid and gut health without the use of carbohydrates, the layout of the recipes in her new book, and a whole lot more! Because Jimmy and Sarah are friends, this is a friendly yet super-engaging debate of ideas you won’t want to miss.

What’s been your favorite interview from the BRAND NEW INTERVIEWS featuring most of the 22 featured experts in our host Jimmy Moore and his coauthor Dr. Eric Westman’s new book Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet? We’ve worked hard to share quality conversations with the biggest names who know and understand all the intricacies of low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic living. The “Moment Of Clarity” quotes from these experts sprinkled all through Keto Clarity are one of the most unique features in the book that you just won’t find in other books. And you get to hear from a few more of them the rest of this week and next week!

Today’s Keto Clarity expert interview is with one of the founding fathers of the modern low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet community in Dr. Ron Rosedale. He founded the first metabolic medicine center in the United States in 1996 in Asheville, North Carolina and has had an interest in metabolic medicine for decades. Dr. Rosedale is a pioneer in applying concepts based on the biology of aging to reversing diabetes and heart disease through a nutritional approach that he developed to improve the cell function. His classic 2004 book The Rosedale Diet outlines the key nutritional approach that has become a standard bearer for the healthy way to doing a low-carb diet successfully. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Rosedale have an incredible one-on-one discussion of why he favors a low-carb, high-fat description of the diet rather than ketogenic, why having higher levels of ketones in the blood isn’t necessarily a good thing, the wrong way to boost ketone levels, the folly of ketogenic diet opponents who point to thyroid and gut health issues as a problem, and a whole lot more! This is quite the engaging Keto Clarity expert conversation with one of the leaders in the field.

Imagine for a moment that you’ve prepared yourself for a promising career in the field of medicine by taking the traditional route of medical school to learn about the latest developments in surgical and pharmaceutical protocols for making people well. But then you observe first-hand what this model of health looks like up close and personal and you realize the tremendous shortcomings this has to offer people in regards to real solutions to their greatest health concerns. That’s exactly what happened to Dr. Justin Marchegiani who decided his time and energy would be much better spent helping people reverse the effects of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. That’s when his mindset changed from traditional medicine to more of a holistic, natural health approach to get to the root problem of health issues rather than simply covering them up with medications.

He got doctorate degree in chiropractic medicine and now practices in San Francisco, California area at the Just In Health Wellness Clinic. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Marchegiani talk about this journey to holistic medicine, why being a holistic doctor helps his patients get better through nutrition and lifestyle rather than medicine and surgeries, the common problems he is seeing in patients such as thyroid hormone imbalances, female hormone imbalances, and chronic infections, what he does to get to the root cause of these issues, how a low-carb diet fits within the nutritional protocol for improving the health of most of his patients, his own battle with an autoimmune thyroid issue and the research that led him to, why some people struggle even eating a low-carb and/or Paleo diet, the massive impact that stress plays on your health, and so much more! Dr. Marchegiani has lived it and is now helping his patients get well without the need for drugs. This is the future of healthcare and the prudent medical professionals are moving to a template like the one Dr. Marchegiani is using.

985: Dr. Michael Ruscio Shares The Truth About Low-Carb Diets And Gut Health

There’s been a lot of accusations thrown around in the past few years regarding the impact that a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is having on the gut health of those who choose to eat this way. It’s been especially strong from various vocal members of the Paleo community who have been promoting the consumption of the so-called “safe starches” and other such foods to feed the good bacteria in the gut. But some of the suggestions that have been made don’t sit well with a Walnut Creek, California-based functional medicine practitioner named Dr. Michael Ruscio who understands the need for patient individuality in treatment and that customizing a plan to take care of the microbiome while also being mindful of blood sugar and other health markers is critically important to making sure the patient is doing the right thing for them.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ruscio discuss his current work doing a pilot research study on small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), why having a SIBO is a bad thing for your health, what causes SIBO to happen, the prevalence of SIBO in our society, why doctors push grains for fiber to treat IBS, the pressure on low-carbers to eat more carbohydrates to feed gut bacteria, whether you can measure for how you can find if you do better on low-carb vs. high-carb, the carbohydrates that he recommends for people who want to tinker and test with increasing, the allergen-restricted, lower-carb diet he puts all of his patients on initially, the spectrum of low to high carb diets he uses to customize treatment for his patients, why mimicking the diet of populations with healthy microbiota is flawed, the microbiota is a reactor to the environment rather than the driver of the disease, why eating to control blood sugar is the best way to prevent disease, what kind of carbohydrates (and prebiotic as well as FODMAP foods) a ketogenic dieter can consume, the problems with uBiome and American Gut Project testing, the connection between gut health and autoimmune disease, why you need to know your fungal readings, how sleep and exercise can have a dramatic effect on your microbiota, why you don’t need fancy stool testing to get good results, the small intestinal fungal overgrowth (SIFO) issue, and whether fecal transplants can be useful to people with damaged gut health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Cole discuss the major differences between the way Functional Medicine and Conventional Medicine handle health problems, how the labs and analysis of functional medicine doctors is different, the lack of knowledge from standard doctors regarding what to do with autoimmune disease, the problem with only looking at TSH to determine overall thyroid health, the carbohydrate connection to diabetes, and so much more! If you’re fed up with the mainstream medicine approach to treating your health, then you won’t want to miss this special interview with Dr. Cole.

After spending the past few weeks sharing interviews with the various experts featured in Jimmy Moore’s new book Keto Clarity, we’re back to our regular podcast schedule again and we welcome in someone who Jimmy first featured back in Episode 589 when she was just getting her name out there in the Paleo health blogosphere. Her name is Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD who has quite the story to tell about how she got into looking at the role of nutrition as a major player in optimizing health. She spent four years conducting research on innate immunity and inflammation, but decided to become a stay-at-home mom to raise her family. It was during this time at home that Sarah discovered she was dealing with an autoimmune inflammatory skin condition known as Lichen Planus as well as irritable bowel syndrome and allergies and that’s when she turned to the Paleo diet which helped her heal these conditions and set her on the path to becoming the author of two books on the subject: her New York Times bestseller from early 2014 called The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body and her brand new companion book of recipes entitled The Paleo Approach Cookbook: A Detailed Guide to Heal Your Body and Nourish Your Soul.

WATCH DR. SARAH BALLANTYNE’S #AHS14 LECTURE

“Ancestral Health for Women” – Sarah Ballantyne & Stacy Toth
If you watch the above video from the 2014 Ancestral Health Symposium (#AHS14) that took place in Berkeley, California in August, then you will see the presentation that instigated Jimmy to invite Sarah on to the show for an interview. During that lecture she conducted with Stacy Toth from the “Paleo Parents” blog, there were claims made about low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets that were less-than-flattering about this way of eating. Because we like to have conversations about nutrition and health here at “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” podcast, Jimmy invited her on to state her case so that the listeners could then decide whether or not her points were valid. Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about the moment she found out her book hit the New York Times bestsellers list for the first time, why she released two books in the same year, why she thinks the Paleo message has taken off in recent years, how Paleo has evolved since it first became popularized, why her response to a ketogenic diet is “no, but,” her primary objections for women, especially of childbearing age, to be reducing their carbohydrate intake, her concerns about thyroid and gut health without the use of carbohydrates, the layout of the recipes in her new book, and a whole lot more! Because Jimmy and Sarah are friends, this is a friendly yet super-engaging debate of ideas you won’t want to miss.

What’s been your favorite interview from the BRAND NEW INTERVIEWS featuring most of the 22 featured experts in our host Jimmy Moore and his coauthor Dr. Eric Westman’s new book Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet? We’ve worked hard to share quality conversations with the biggest names who know and understand all the intricacies of low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic living. The “Moment Of Clarity” quotes from these experts sprinkled all through Keto Clarity are one of the most unique features in the book that you just won’t find in other books. And you get to hear from a few more of them the rest of this week and next week!

Today’s Keto Clarity expert interview is with one of the founding fathers of the modern low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet community in Dr. Ron Rosedale. He founded the first metabolic medicine center in the United States in 1996 in Asheville, North Carolina and has had an interest in metabolic medicine for decades. Dr. Rosedale is a pioneer in applying concepts based on the biology of aging to reversing diabetes and heart disease through a nutritional approach that he developed to improve the cell function. His classic 2004 book The Rosedale Diet outlines the key nutritional approach that has become a standard bearer for the healthy way to doing a low-carb diet successfully. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Rosedale have an incredible one-on-one discussion of why he favors a low-carb, high-fat description of the diet rather than ketogenic, why having higher levels of ketones in the blood isn’t necessarily a good thing, the wrong way to boost ketone levels, the folly of ketogenic diet opponents who point to thyroid and gut health issues as a problem, and a whole lot more! This is quite the engaging Keto Clarity expert conversation with one of the leaders in the field.

Imagine for a moment that you’ve prepared yourself for a promising career in the field of medicine by taking the traditional route of medical school to learn about the latest developments in surgical and pharmaceutical protocols for making people well. But then you observe first-hand what this model of health looks like up close and personal and you realize the tremendous shortcomings this has to offer people in regards to real solutions to their greatest health concerns. That’s exactly what happened to Dr. Justin Marchegiani who decided his time and energy would be much better spent helping people reverse the effects of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. That’s when his mindset changed from traditional medicine to more of a holistic, natural health approach to get to the root problem of health issues rather than simply covering them up with medications.

He got doctorate degree in chiropractic medicine and now practices in San Francisco, California area at the Just In Health Wellness Clinic. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Marchegiani talk about this journey to holistic medicine, why being a holistic doctor helps his patients get better through nutrition and lifestyle rather than medicine and surgeries, the common problems he is seeing in patients such as thyroid hormone imbalances, female hormone imbalances, and chronic infections, what he does to get to the root cause of these issues, how a low-carb diet fits within the nutritional protocol for improving the health of most of his patients, his own battle with an autoimmune thyroid issue and the research that led him to, why some people struggle even eating a low-carb and/or Paleo diet, the massive impact that stress plays on your health, and so much more! Dr. Marchegiani has lived it and is now helping his patients get well without the need for drugs. This is the future of healthcare and the prudent medical professionals are moving to a template like the one Dr. Marchegiani is using.

985: Dr. Michael Ruscio Shares The Truth About Low-Carb Diets And Gut Health

There’s been a lot of accusations thrown around in the past few years regarding the impact that a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is having on the gut health of those who choose to eat this way. It’s been especially strong from various vocal members of the Paleo community who have been promoting the consumption of the so-called “safe starches” and other such foods to feed the good bacteria in the gut. But some of the suggestions that have been made don’t sit well with a Walnut Creek, California-based functional medicine practitioner named Dr. Michael Ruscio who understands the need for patient individuality in treatment and that customizing a plan to take care of the microbiome while also being mindful of blood sugar and other health markers is critically important to making sure the patient is doing the right thing for them.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ruscio discuss his current work doing a pilot research study on small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), why having a SIBO is a bad thing for your health, what causes SIBO to happen, the prevalence of SIBO in our society, why doctors push grains for fiber to treat IBS, the pressure on low-carbers to eat more carbohydrates to feed gut bacteria, whether you can measure for how you can find if you do better on low-carb vs. high-carb, the carbohydrates that he recommends for people who want to tinker and test with increasing, the allergen-restricted, lower-carb diet he puts all of his patients on initially, the spectrum of low to high carb diets he uses to customize treatment for his patients, why mimicking the diet of populations with healthy microbiota is flawed, the microbiota is a reactor to the environment rather than the driver of the disease, why eating to control blood sugar is the best way to prevent disease, what kind of carbohydrates (and prebiotic as well as FODMAP foods) a ketogenic dieter can consume, the problems with uBiome and American Gut Project testing, the connection between gut health and autoimmune disease, why you need to know your fungal readings, how sleep and exercise can have a dramatic effect on your microbiota, why you don’t need fancy stool testing to get good results, the small intestinal fungal overgrowth (SIFO) issue, and whether fecal transplants can be useful to people with damaged gut health.

After spending the past few weeks sharing interviews with the various experts featured in Jimmy Moore’s new book Keto Clarity, we’re back to our regular podcast schedule again and we welcome in someone who Jimmy first featured back in Episode 589 when she was just getting her name out there in the Paleo health blogosphere. Her name is Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD who has quite the story to tell about how she got into looking at the role of nutrition as a major player in optimizing health. She spent four years conducting research on innate immunity and inflammation, but decided to become a stay-at-home mom to raise her family. It was during this time at home that Sarah discovered she was dealing with an autoimmune inflammatory skin condition known as Lichen Planus as well as irritable bowel syndrome and allergies and that’s when she turned to the Paleo diet which helped her heal these conditions and set her on the path to becoming the author of two books on the subject: her New York Times bestseller from early 2014 called The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body and her brand new companion book of recipes entitled The Paleo Approach Cookbook: A Detailed Guide to Heal Your Body and Nourish Your Soul.

WATCH DR. SARAH BALLANTYNE’S #AHS14 LECTURE

“Ancestral Health for Women” – Sarah Ballantyne & Stacy Toth
If you watch the above video from the 2014 Ancestral Health Symposium (#AHS14) that took place in Berkeley, California in August, then you will see the presentation that instigated Jimmy to invite Sarah on to the show for an interview. During that lecture she conducted with Stacy Toth from the “Paleo Parents” blog, there were claims made about low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets that were less-than-flattering about this way of eating. Because we like to have conversations about nutrition and health here at “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” podcast, Jimmy invited her on to state her case so that the listeners could then decide whether or not her points were valid. Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about the moment she found out her book hit the New York Times bestsellers list for the first time, why she released two books in the same year, why she thinks the Paleo message has taken off in recent years, how Paleo has evolved since it first became popularized, why her response to a ketogenic diet is “no, but,” her primary objections for women, especially of childbearing age, to be reducing their carbohydrate intake, her concerns about thyroid and gut health without the use of carbohydrates, the layout of the recipes in her new book, and a whole lot more! Because Jimmy and Sarah are friends, this is a friendly yet super-engaging debate of ideas you won’t want to miss.

What’s been your favorite interview from the BRAND NEW INTERVIEWS featuring most of the 22 featured experts in our host Jimmy Moore and his coauthor Dr. Eric Westman’s new book Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet? We’ve worked hard to share quality conversations with the biggest names who know and understand all the intricacies of low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic living. The “Moment Of Clarity” quotes from these experts sprinkled all through Keto Clarity are one of the most unique features in the book that you just won’t find in other books. And you get to hear from a few more of them the rest of this week and next week!

Today’s Keto Clarity expert interview is with one of the founding fathers of the modern low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet community in Dr. Ron Rosedale. He founded the first metabolic medicine center in the United States in 1996 in Asheville, North Carolina and has had an interest in metabolic medicine for decades. Dr. Rosedale is a pioneer in applying concepts based on the biology of aging to reversing diabetes and heart disease through a nutritional approach that he developed to improve the cell function. His classic 2004 book The Rosedale Diet outlines the key nutritional approach that has become a standard bearer for the healthy way to doing a low-carb diet successfully. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Rosedale have an incredible one-on-one discussion of why he favors a low-carb, high-fat description of the diet rather than ketogenic, why having higher levels of ketones in the blood isn’t necessarily a good thing, the wrong way to boost ketone levels, the folly of ketogenic diet opponents who point to thyroid and gut health issues as a problem, and a whole lot more! This is quite the engaging Keto Clarity expert conversation with one of the leaders in the field.

Imagine for a moment that you’ve prepared yourself for a promising career in the field of medicine by taking the traditional route of medical school to learn about the latest developments in surgical and pharmaceutical protocols for making people well. But then you observe first-hand what this model of health looks like up close and personal and you realize the tremendous shortcomings this has to offer people in regards to real solutions to their greatest health concerns. That’s exactly what happened to Dr. Justin Marchegiani who decided his time and energy would be much better spent helping people reverse the effects of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. That’s when his mindset changed from traditional medicine to more of a holistic, natural health approach to get to the root problem of health issues rather than simply covering them up with medications.

He got doctorate degree in chiropractic medicine and now practices in San Francisco, California area at the Just In Health Wellness Clinic. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Marchegiani talk about this journey to holistic medicine, why being a holistic doctor helps his patients get better through nutrition and lifestyle rather than medicine and surgeries, the common problems he is seeing in patients such as thyroid hormone imbalances, female hormone imbalances, and chronic infections, what he does to get to the root cause of these issues, how a low-carb diet fits within the nutritional protocol for improving the health of most of his patients, his own battle with an autoimmune thyroid issue and the research that led him to, why some people struggle even eating a low-carb and/or Paleo diet, the massive impact that stress plays on your health, and so much more! Dr. Marchegiani has lived it and is now helping his patients get well without the need for drugs. This is the future of healthcare and the prudent medical professionals are moving to a template like the one Dr. Marchegiani is using.

985: Dr. Michael Ruscio Shares The Truth About Low-Carb Diets And Gut Health

Functional medicine practitioner Dr. Michael Ruscio is our guest today in Episode 985 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

There’s been a lot of accusations thrown around in the past few years regarding the impact that a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is having on the gut health of those who choose to eat this way. It’s been especially strong from various vocal members of the Paleo community who have been promoting the consumption of the so-called “safe starches” and other such foods to feed the good bacteria in the gut. But some of the suggestions that have been made don’t sit well with a Walnut Creek, California-based functional medicine practitioner named Dr. Michael Ruscio who understands the need for patient individuality in treatment and that customizing a plan to take care of the microbiome while also being mindful of blood sugar and other health markers is critically important to making sure the patient is doing the right thing for them.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ruscio discuss his current work doing a pilot research study on small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), why having a SIBO is a bad thing for your health, what causes SIBO to happen, the prevalence of SIBO in our society, why doctors push grains for fiber to treat IBS, the pressure on low-carbers to eat more carbohydrates to feed gut bacteria, whether you can measure for how you can find if you do better on low-carb vs. high-carb, the carbohydrates that he recommends for people who want to tinker and test with increasing, the allergen-restricted, lower-carb diet he puts all of his patients on initially, the spectrum of low to high carb diets he uses to customize treatment for his patients, why mimicking the diet of populations with healthy microbiota is flawed, the microbiota is a reactor to the environment rather than the driver of the disease, why eating to control blood sugar is the best way to prevent disease, what kind of carbohydrates (and prebiotic as well as FODMAP foods) a ketogenic dieter can consume, the problems with uBiome and American Gut Project testing, the connection between gut health and autoimmune disease, why you need to know your fungal readings, how sleep and exercise can have a dramatic effect on your microbiota, why you don’t need fancy stool testing to get good results, the small intestinal fungal overgrowth (SIFO) issue, and whether fecal transplants can be useful to people with damaged gut health.

It seems the more conventional medicine tries to deal with the chronic diseases of our modern day, the more stark their failure at getting to the root causes of these health problems appears. That’s why there has been a rise in the number of Functional Medicine practitioners in recent years attempting to correct these errors and helping patients truly find a pathway back to health again. That’s the heart soul of a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based Functional Medicine practitioner and clinical nutritionist named Dr. Will Cole. He sees patients in person in the Pittsburgh area as well as via telephone or Skype around the world to help them with a wide variety of common health problems with a customized solution tailored just for them.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Cole discuss the major differences between the way Functional Medicine and Conventional Medicine handle health problems, how the labs and analysis of functional medicine doctors is different, the lack of knowledge from standard doctors regarding what to do with autoimmune disease, the problem with only looking at TSH to determine overall thyroid health, the carbohydrate connection to diabetes, and so much more! If you’re fed up with the mainstream medicine approach to treating your health, then you won’t want to miss this special interview with Dr. Cole.

If you watch the above video from the 2014 Ancestral Health Symposium (#AHS14) that took place in Berkeley, California in August, then you will see the presentation that instigated Jimmy to invite Sarah on to the show for an interview. During that lecture she conducted with Stacy Toth from the “Paleo Parents” blog, there were claims made about low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets that were less-than-flattering about this way of eating. Because we like to have conversations about nutrition and health here at “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” podcast, Jimmy invited her on to state her case so that the listeners could then decide whether or not her points were valid. Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about the moment she found out her book hit the New York Times bestsellers list for the first time, why she released two books in the same year, why she thinks the Paleo message has taken off in recent years, how Paleo has evolved since it first became popularized, why her response to a ketogenic diet is “no, but,” her primary objections for women, especially of childbearing age, to be reducing their carbohydrate intake, her concerns about thyroid and gut health without the use of carbohydrates, the layout of the recipes in her new book, and a whole lot more! Because Jimmy and Sarah are friends, this is a friendly yet super-engaging debate of ideas you won’t want to miss.

What’s been your favorite interview from the BRAND NEW INTERVIEWS featuring most of the 22 featured experts in our host Jimmy Moore and his coauthor Dr. Eric Westman’s new book Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet? We’ve worked hard to share quality conversations with the biggest names who know and understand all the intricacies of low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic living. The “Moment Of Clarity” quotes from these experts sprinkled all through Keto Clarity are one of the most unique features in the book that you just won’t find in other books. And you get to hear from a few more of them the rest of this week and next week!

Today’s Keto Clarity expert interview is with one of the founding fathers of the modern low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet community in Dr. Ron Rosedale. He founded the first metabolic medicine center in the United States in 1996 in Asheville, North Carolina and has had an interest in metabolic medicine for decades. Dr. Rosedale is a pioneer in applying concepts based on the biology of aging to reversing diabetes and heart disease through a nutritional approach that he developed to improve the cell function. His classic 2004 book The Rosedale Diet outlines the key nutritional approach that has become a standard bearer for the healthy way to doing a low-carb diet successfully. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Rosedale have an incredible one-on-one discussion of why he favors a low-carb, high-fat description of the diet rather than ketogenic, why having higher levels of ketones in the blood isn’t necessarily a good thing, the wrong way to boost ketone levels, the folly of ketogenic diet opponents who point to thyroid and gut health issues as a problem, and a whole lot more! This is quite the engaging Keto Clarity expert conversation with one of the leaders in the field.

Imagine for a moment that you’ve prepared yourself for a promising career in the field of medicine by taking the traditional route of medical school to learn about the latest developments in surgical and pharmaceutical protocols for making people well. But then you observe first-hand what this model of health looks like up close and personal and you realize the tremendous shortcomings this has to offer people in regards to real solutions to their greatest health concerns. That’s exactly what happened to Dr. Justin Marchegiani who decided his time and energy would be much better spent helping people reverse the effects of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. That’s when his mindset changed from traditional medicine to more of a holistic, natural health approach to get to the root problem of health issues rather than simply covering them up with medications.

He got doctorate degree in chiropractic medicine and now practices in San Francisco, California area at the Just In Health Wellness Clinic. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Marchegiani talk about this journey to holistic medicine, why being a holistic doctor helps his patients get better through nutrition and lifestyle rather than medicine and surgeries, the common problems he is seeing in patients such as thyroid hormone imbalances, female hormone imbalances, and chronic infections, what he does to get to the root cause of these issues, how a low-carb diet fits within the nutritional protocol for improving the health of most of his patients, his own battle with an autoimmune thyroid issue and the research that led him to, why some people struggle even eating a low-carb and/or Paleo diet, the massive impact that stress plays on your health, and so much more! Dr. Marchegiani has lived it and is now helping his patients get well without the need for drugs. This is the future of healthcare and the prudent medical professionals are moving to a template like the one Dr. Marchegiani is using.

985: Dr. Michael Ruscio Shares The Truth About Low-Carb Diets And Gut Health

Functional medicine practitioner Dr. Michael Ruscio is our guest today in Episode 985 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

There’s been a lot of accusations thrown around in the past few years regarding the impact that a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is having on the gut health of those who choose to eat this way. It’s been especially strong from various vocal members of the Paleo community who have been promoting the consumption of the so-called “safe starches” and other such foods to feed the good bacteria in the gut. But some of the suggestions that have been made don’t sit well with a Walnut Creek, California-based functional medicine practitioner named Dr. Michael Ruscio who understands the need for patient individuality in treatment and that customizing a plan to take care of the microbiome while also being mindful of blood sugar and other health markers is critically important to making sure the patient is doing the right thing for them.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ruscio discuss his current work doing a pilot research study on small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), why having a SIBO is a bad thing for your health, what causes SIBO to happen, the prevalence of SIBO in our society, why doctors push grains for fiber to treat IBS, the pressure on low-carbers to eat more carbohydrates to feed gut bacteria, whether you can measure for how you can find if you do better on low-carb vs. high-carb, the carbohydrates that he recommends for people who want to tinker and test with increasing, the allergen-restricted, lower-carb diet he puts all of his patients on initially, the spectrum of low to high carb diets he uses to customize treatment for his patients, why mimicking the diet of populations with healthy microbiota is flawed, the microbiota is a reactor to the environment rather than the driver of the disease, why eating to control blood sugar is the best way to prevent disease, what kind of carbohydrates (and prebiotic as well as FODMAP foods) a ketogenic dieter can consume, the problems with uBiome and American Gut Project testing, the connection between gut health and autoimmune disease, why you need to know your fungal readings, how sleep and exercise can have a dramatic effect on your microbiota, why you don’t need fancy stool testing to get good results, the small intestinal fungal overgrowth (SIFO) issue, and whether fecal transplants can be useful to people with damaged gut health.

It seems the more conventional medicine tries to deal with the chronic diseases of our modern day, the more stark their failure at getting to the root causes of these health problems appears. That’s why there has been a rise in the number of Functional Medicine practitioners in recent years attempting to correct these errors and helping patients truly find a pathway back to health again. That’s the heart soul of a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based Functional Medicine practitioner and clinical nutritionist named Dr. Will Cole. He sees patients in person in the Pittsburgh area as well as via telephone or Skype around the world to help them with a wide variety of common health problems with a customized solution tailored just for them.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Cole discuss the major differences between the way Functional Medicine and Conventional Medicine handle health problems, how the labs and analysis of functional medicine doctors is different, the lack of knowledge from standard doctors regarding what to do with autoimmune disease, the problem with only looking at TSH to determine overall thyroid health, the carbohydrate connection to diabetes, and so much more! If you’re fed up with the mainstream medicine approach to treating your health, then you won’t want to miss this special interview with Dr. Cole.

After spending the past few weeks sharing interviews with the various experts featured in Jimmy Moore’s new book Keto Clarity, we’re back to our regular podcast schedule again and we welcome in someone who Jimmy first featured back in Episode 589 when she was just getting her name out there in the Paleo health blogosphere. Her name is Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD who has quite the story to tell about how she got into looking at the role of nutrition as a major player in optimizing health. She spent four years conducting research on innate immunity and inflammation, but decided to become a stay-at-home mom to raise her family. It was during this time at home that Sarah discovered she was dealing with an autoimmune inflammatory skin condition known as Lichen Planus as well as irritable bowel syndrome and allergies and that’s when she turned to the Paleo diet which helped her heal these conditions and set her on the path to becoming the author of two books on the subject: her New York Times bestseller from early 2014 called The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body and her brand new companion book of recipes entitled The Paleo Approach Cookbook: A Detailed Guide to Heal Your Body and Nourish Your Soul.

What’s been your favorite interview from the BRAND NEW INTERVIEWS featuring most of the 22 featured experts in our host Jimmy Moore and his coauthor Dr. Eric Westman’s new book Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet? We’ve worked hard to share quality conversations with the biggest names who know and understand all the intricacies of low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic living. The “Moment Of Clarity” quotes from these experts sprinkled all through Keto Clarity are one of the most unique features in the book that you just won’t find in other books. And you get to hear from a few more of them the rest of this week and next week!

Today’s Keto Clarity expert interview is with one of the founding fathers of the modern low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet community in Dr. Ron Rosedale. He founded the first metabolic medicine center in the United States in 1996 in Asheville, North Carolina and has had an interest in metabolic medicine for decades. Dr. Rosedale is a pioneer in applying concepts based on the biology of aging to reversing diabetes and heart disease through a nutritional approach that he developed to improve the cell function. His classic 2004 book The Rosedale Diet outlines the key nutritional approach that has become a standard bearer for the healthy way to doing a low-carb diet successfully. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Rosedale have an incredible one-on-one discussion of why he favors a low-carb, high-fat description of the diet rather than ketogenic, why having higher levels of ketones in the blood isn’t necessarily a good thing, the wrong way to boost ketone levels, the folly of ketogenic diet opponents who point to thyroid and gut health issues as a problem, and a whole lot more! This is quite the engaging Keto Clarity expert conversation with one of the leaders in the field.

Imagine for a moment that you’ve prepared yourself for a promising career in the field of medicine by taking the traditional route of medical school to learn about the latest developments in surgical and pharmaceutical protocols for making people well. But then you observe first-hand what this model of health looks like up close and personal and you realize the tremendous shortcomings this has to offer people in regards to real solutions to their greatest health concerns. That’s exactly what happened to Dr. Justin Marchegiani who decided his time and energy would be much better spent helping people reverse the effects of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. That’s when his mindset changed from traditional medicine to more of a holistic, natural health approach to get to the root problem of health issues rather than simply covering them up with medications.

He got doctorate degree in chiropractic medicine and now practices in San Francisco, California area at the Just In Health Wellness Clinic. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Marchegiani talk about this journey to holistic medicine, why being a holistic doctor helps his patients get better through nutrition and lifestyle rather than medicine and surgeries, the common problems he is seeing in patients such as thyroid hormone imbalances, female hormone imbalances, and chronic infections, what he does to get to the root cause of these issues, how a low-carb diet fits within the nutritional protocol for improving the health of most of his patients, his own battle with an autoimmune thyroid issue and the research that led him to, why some people struggle even eating a low-carb and/or Paleo diet, the massive impact that stress plays on your health, and so much more! Dr. Marchegiani has lived it and is now helping his patients get well without the need for drugs. This is the future of healthcare and the prudent medical professionals are moving to a template like the one Dr. Marchegiani is using.
