97: Young at Heart

97: Young at Heart

Vegan of 41 yrs, Dr. Joel Kahn is one of the world's top cardiologists and best selling authors. According to the CDC, about 610,000 Americans die from a heart attack EVERY YEAR. That’s one in every four deaths! Heart disease has also been rated as the leading cause of death for both men and women. In addition, every year about 735,000 Americans have a heart attack, and of these, 525,000 are first heart attacks, and 210,000 are repeated. What’s even more alarming? A lot of this can be prevented! In fact, did you know that some nations don't even have a word for "heart attack"? This is because heart disease is RARELY genetic, but rather a product of our lifestyles! Dr. Kahn mentions a study that was done in Sweden and the Netherlands with a sample size of 25,000 participants. Various questions were asked regarding the participants' lifestyle choices. Then another 20 years later, the analysts researched who was alive, who died, who had a heart attack, what kind of medical procedures were performed...

After the study they found that if you follow a few simple steps, you can absolutely avoid a heart attack about 85-90% of the time (only 3-4% of Americans meet this criteria!):

  • 1st: Don't smoke
  • 2nd: Men, your waistline is less than 40 inches, women, less than 35
  • 3rd: Walk at least 30 minutes per day
  • 4th: Drink 1-4 alcoholic drinks per week (Helps the blood flow. More than 7 is counter-productive)
  • 5th: Sleep more than 7 hours per night
  • 6th: Eat 5 or more servings of fruits or vegetables every day

96: Change Your Mindset

96: Change Your Mindset

Dr. Kasey Johnson is a vegan, a mother, a chiropractor, and a badass babe! While she was training for her current career, she started adopting the principles of the Paleo and Ketogenic diets; compared to her dorm-style junkfood college days, this was a huge improvement! However, it was also just a stepping stone in her towards an even more positive goal of being vegan! After giving birth, she ended up with the extremely painful condition known as mastitis (inflammation of the breast tissue). After researching how meat and dairy cause inflamation, she cut out the animal products and saw immediate results!

86: What’s the Underlying Issue?

86: What's the Underlying Issue?

Remember Jim Chialtas from Episode 75? If you haven't heard it yet, I recommend you check it out! Today, we welcome back Jim to dive a little deeper into Functional Blood Chemistry, as well as review some of my personal blood and saliva tests that may have revealed something I would've never expected. After my last podcast with Jim, I had a consultation with him and mentioned that one of my biggest physical set-backs was EXTREME bloating combined with eczema.

I don't like to abuse the word "suffering", but I'm telling you; most days I would look like I was 4 months pregnant, and I would scratch my legs so bad in my sleep, I'd wake up with wounds. I don't eat meat, don't eat dairy, I've recently cut out gluten and I eat mostly whole foods. I was really confused as to what it could be.

The blood test showed I was low in iron, but there were other results that I didn't quite understand. The funny thing is, I track my macro and micronutrients, and get PLENTY of iron in my diet! So, what's the underlying issue? My first thought was that I may have developed Celiac, which could be preventing my intestines from absorbing the iron. So, I started eliminating gluten. But, it seems I may have been wrong!

Curious what may have happened? I think you may be as surprised as I was!
