There are so many complex issues in the realm of health that it can sometimes be difficult to keep up with it all. That’s why we try to find experts who can explain these sorts of ideas in language that makes sense to the layperson. Today’s interview guest is certainly one of those–Dr. Tim Jackson from HealYourBody.org. He is a Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) who quickly realized his training was limited in truly helping improve the health of the patients he was seeing. That’s when he started studying functional medicine looking into digestive health, nutrition, and functional endocrinology which all remain a strong passion.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jackson discuss how he committed to exercise while in college and found benefits, the jaw surgery he had in college for an underbite that he now regrets, the various infections he learned he had that helped restore his health, how people are thrown into surgeries without much screening, his experience in physical therapy where he uses supplements to help clients, how he tries to find the “biggest health rocks,” the flaws in the CDSA test that cultures the bugs compared with the PCR test (from Metametrics) in the DNA for measuring gut health, artificial sweeteners are killing the bacteria in the gut, whether or not there is scientific data that state very low-carb diets are harmful to gut health, how stress takes away from your ability to digest, the nutritional and lifestyle ways to heal the damage to the gut, if you have an infection you need to use antimicrobials, herbs, and maybe medications to remove it, the impact that mold toxicity has on gut health and overall health, how to determine the species of mold you have in your home using the ERMI and HERTSMI-2 tests, the HLA-DR mold genotype that makes some people hypersensitive to mold while others aren’t impacted at all, the epigenetics vs. genetics debate, the biochemical hiccup that can impact your immunity, detoxification, and hormones, the MTHFR enzyme that plays a role in the use of folic acid, how exposure to EMFs from wi-fi can be as toxic to your cells as mold, and more!

You may have heard the term sustainability in the context of the food supply and healthy living in the past few years but didn’t quite know what it meant. But Boston, Massachusetts-based RD-in-training and organic animal and vegetable farmer Diana Rodgers from SustainableDish.com has made it her personal mission to spread the word about how to attain optimal health is by focusing on nutritious and delicious eating with humanely-raised animals, organic vegetables, and being willing to get your hands a little dirty to reconnect with your food again. She’s written a fabulous new book about this topic entitled The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook: Over 100 Delicious, Gluten-Free, Farm-to-Table Recipes, and a Complete Guide to Growing Your Own Healthy Food.

Listen in as Jimmy and Diana talk about her current farming life, her course work getting her registered dietitian education, how giving nutrition advice out to clients required her to become an RD, her extensive questionnaire for new clients, the depressing state of nutrition for patients in hospitals, how school cafeterias are trying to make the best food they can with the food they get, the local sourcing of quality foods happening in Minneapolis, MN, the guidelines and budgetary restraints of food sold to schools, the local store in her area that is making to-go meals made out of quality food available, why the original name for the book was going to be Sustainable Paleo, the variety of foods you get from a CSA (even if you don’t know what to do with it), how she’s getting people to take their Paleo diet to the next level (Paleo 2.0), why real food is really the ultimate focus we are trying to get people to embrace, the purpose and value in owning your own bees, the inspiration she’s made on me to get chickens for my backyard, how home gardens and farm animals used to be the norm, how Americans spend less money on food than the rest of the world, the kind of food she feeds her family, how she believes so strongly in eating by the season and locally, the non-diet, community-building things she included in her book, and the games she talks about like Capture The Flag and Chicken *BLEEP* Bingo.

There are a few really passionate people involved in the health community who are making a huge difference in the lives of others through their hard work and commitment to helping others improve their weight and health through basic shifts in their nutrition and lifestyle. One of those people is the infectiously joyous man with the golden voice named Abel James. He’s the inspirational man behind the top-ranked iTunes health podcast called “The Fat-Burning Man Show” and popular blogger at FatBurningMan.com. He’s had quite the influence within the Paleo community but he’s taking his message to a wider audience with the April 7, 2015 release of his new book The Wild Diet: Get Back to Your Roots, Burn Fat, and Drop Up to 20 Pounds in 40 Days.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Abel discuss his influence on Jimmy in getting a standing work desk to record podcasts and blog, how he got his e-book picked up by a major publisher called Avery Books, the fun and goofy guest-hosting he and George Bryant did on this podcast, his whirlwind journey traveling around the world (including touring with the Tim McGraw band), the conference he spoke at in Florida talking about how stupid writing a book is that got the attention of a book agent, how incredibly popular his “The Fat-Burning Man Show” iTunes health podcast is, how podcasting has helped open the doors to average people sharing quality information without gatekeepers, how members of The Tim McGraw band are big fans of his show, the album he “accidentally” recorded with the leader of the Tim McGraw band, why he’s purposely stayed away from using the Paleo word (despite the publisher’s urging), how the term Paleo has become overtaken by the marketers distorting what Paleo really means, how we’re eating freaky foods that wouldn’t be recognized by our great-grandmother as food, the Atkins Nutritionals representative who came up to Jimmy in South Africa, why you have to qualify food by calling it “real,” how people have tried to do the right thing for their health and yet they’ve gotten worse, why getting healthy is about more than simply changing your diet (it’s those “boring” lifestyle factors that are even more important), find out what your biological advantages are and use them to your benefit, how his allergy to antibiotics got his mom interested in herbal medicine, his songwriting ability that enables him to create “little bombs” of common sense information, the health halo people have about “healthy whole grains,” the wackiness of the way food-like products are promoted as healthy, the big food company he consulted once who was working on a shelf-stable milk product, stuff that comes out of restaurants or in boxes don’t have any relationship to health, when you eat well your body craves the good stuff with healthy addictions, the various meals he’s been able to enjoy in other cultures that’s unlike American food culture, how people think eating at Subway is healthy, we all have an animalistic side to our humanity that we were meant to embrace, why breakfast is generally the most dangerous meal of the day in traditional American culture, how acting old has been keeping him young, how declaring “technological bankruptcy” for a few weeks opened his eyes to how most of the information is just noise, and why doing the least desirable task at the beginning of your day will make the rest of your day go well. Abel is an incredible communicator of information you’ll LOVE!

938: Franziska Spritzler Promotes A Whole Food Low-Carb Approach To Health & Beauty

Although the low-carb message has been out there for more than a century, the interpretation of what that looks like on a meal plate and the purpose for eating this way is still one of hot debate today. Unfortunately, many modern-day low-carb dieters make the mistake of including suspicious food items (grains, sugars, fake sweeteners) that wouldn’t be recognized by people in the original low-carb diet days of William Banting while putting all the emphasis of restricting carbohydrates on losing weight. That’s why it’s great to have people like registered dietitian Franziska Spritzler from the “Low Carb Dietitian” blog articulating the use of a real, whole foods-based low-carb lifestyle for the purposes of improving health and beauty. It’s such a different take on the standard use of a low-carb diet that Franziska has put it all together in a brand new book about it entitled The Low Carb Dietitian’s Guide to Health and Beauty: How a Whole-Foods, Low-Carbohydrate Lifestyle Can Help You Look and Feel Better Than Ever.

Listen in as Jimmy and Franziska share about the whole lifestyle that improves health and looks (not just about weight loss), why a whole foods-based diet is critical to making a low-carb diet work well, how saying you can’t eat higher quality food is an invalid excuse, why the Atkins products and other “low-carb” products may not be great for you, who she was trying to reach with the “beauty” part of her book title, why she is proud to be 48 and still look so young, how the Paleo and real food movement have played a major role in shifting low-carb dieters, the concerns about ketosis from dietitians and health professionals, the persistence at promoting whole grains as healthy, how people rationalize eating grains over fat and protein, the illustration of the amount of sugar in the blood vs. the ADA’s idea of healthy amounts of carbohydrates for diabetics to consume, why even whole foods promoted by the Paleo community can be problematic for people with insulin resistance, how people can determine whether a low-carb diet is right for them, why including more salt and fat in your diet is necessary on a low-carb diet, how a low-carb diet can provide benefits even without being ketogenic, the various options that are available for people wanting to eat low-carb, helping people recognize where they are in their carb tolerance, why she still put the calories and nutritional data in her recipes (for those people who obsess over those things), why the sugar substitute issue is still debated, her recommendations to have some of these in small amounts (but not the sugar alcohols like maltitol found in many sugar-free chocolates), how reducing your taste for sweet down will help your health, why she falls down on the side of net carbs vs. total carbohydrates, the importance of getting an adequate fiber intake, how the rest of the world lists fiber separately from total carbohydrates on the nutrition labels, and the ton of recipes she provided in her book.

Every seven seconds somebody dies from the complications associated with diabetes. But a Wilmington, Delaware-based diabetes educator, chiropractor, and functional medicine practitioner named Dr. Brian Mowll says this need not be the case when there are some simple diet and lifestyle changes that can help reverse this trend. That’s why he is hosting a very special FREE online event beginning today, March 23, 2015 through Sunday, March 30, 2015 called The Diabetes World Summit featuring 41 amazing experts in the world of health, including your favorite Paleo and low-carb health superstars like Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, Dietitian Cassie, Mark Sisson, Dr. Josh Axe, Dr. Jason Fung, Dr. Tom O’Bryan, Dr. Amy Myers, Dr. Richard Feinman, Franziska Spritzler, Dr. Caryn Zinn, Dr. Richard Bernstein, Diane Sanfilippo, Dr. Sara Gottfried, Dr. David Perlmutter and many others–including our host, Jimmy Moore. This is such an exciting event that Jimmy decided to turn the tables on Dr. Mowll to interview him in a special simulcast interview that airs on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” and during The Diabetes Summit today. Register for FREE here or you can purchase the entire Diabetes World Summit right away.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mowll share his interest in health and fitness, why he’s so passionate about sharing with the world the real answers to Type 2 diabetes, how people make a choice to change once they get diagnosed with diabetes, the way lifestyle can play a positive role in managing diabetes, how we’ve set ourselves up with the “perfect storm” for diabetes and metabolic disease, the many issues involved in the development of diabetes beyond nutrition, why the standard of care recommendations for treating diabetes are ridiculous, how the diabetes diet is so close (but so far) to being right, how diabetes medications are mostly used to suppress the blood sugar response of consuming a poor diet, why fat is not the issue in diabetes that conventional diabetes educators claim, the absurdity of the so-called “low-carb” diabetes diet studies, why he chooses to use the phrase “reversing diabetes” in his summit referring to Type 2 diabetes, how Type 1 diabetes cannot be cured but rather improved, bariatric surgery and restricted diets have both been shown to reverse Type 2 diabetes, how the improvements in Type 2 diabetes happen on a ketogenic diet, how losing visceral fat is a big part of dealing with diabetes, how just one night of sleep deprivation can make you insulin resistance, the stress component in blood sugar regulation, the many factors about why blood sugar can be raised despite very low-carb intake, how plants and organ meats are great sources of vitamins and phytonutrients, the most memorable things he learned interviewing all these experts during The Diabetes Summit, and why too much insulin (even in Type 1 diabetics) can be problematic.
