    Radio Show: Cortisol: The Unexpected Killer [Encore Replay]

    in Health

    In this show you’ll learn:



    A basic understanding of how cortisol works in your body, and what it is perfectly designed to do.
    A list of the most common health threats of having too much elevated cortisol over long periods of time.
    Some easy solutions you can do right now, as well as when you feel a stress reaction, to mitigate the cortisol spike.


    Background:


    Stress leads to the epidemic known as Adrenal Fatigue (also called adrenal burnout or adrenal exhaustion). When you secrete cortisol on a regular basis, it creates a whole host of problems for your body.


    Years of high levels of cortisol cause serious problems. It will catch up with you, eventually.


    Cortisol is not the “bad guy,” however! It is doing its job by reacting to what you tell it to: threats. The problem is that you are no longer being chased by a hungry tiger in real life, but you are reacting to your daily stresses as if you are.


    Join Dr. Ritamarie and discover in this show the dangers of continual cortisol spikes, why it’s such a killer, and leave with some solutions you can implement right now to significantly diminish this very real health danger from your life.

    Radio Show: Gut Smart Gene Smart Diet: An Interview with Donna Gates

    in Health

    When it comes to choosing what to eat, the literature is fraught with confusing research, statistics, and recommendations. Proponents of a variety of diet "religions" purport to have the perfect diet for all of human kind. Studies contradict themselves, and hot-under-the-collar debates separate diet factions. Confusion and overwhelm abounds, and, for many, it results in just giving up and eating what tastes good.


    But what if instead of following a particular diet religion, you could based on factors in your genetics, and make smart food choices based on what's best for your unique biochemistry?


    Understanding genetics with relationship to food choices, in a new science called nutrigenomics, is what today's show is all about


    Join Dr. Ritamarie and Donna Gates, author of The Body Ecology Diet, and learn:



    The impact of your genes on your gut flora
    Why the one-size-fits-all diet doesn't work, and how to customize yours based on your genetics
    What to do if your vitamin D receptors are suboptimal due to your genetics
    The alphabet soup of genes that impact digestion and food effects - NERF-2, FUT, VDR, NAT, TAS1r3, MTHFR and much more
    Genes that effect whether you do well or poorly with saturated fats, and when it's most important to eat a plant-based diet based on genetics


    70 million people suffer from digestive diseases alone in the US.  Find out from 32 top health experts if your gut is the cause of your issues.  Sign up for The Healthy Gut Summit, a free online event, February 9-16, 2015.

    Radio Show: The Power of Water to Impact Your Health

    in Health

    In this show you’ll learn:



    What the water is that is in the cells of your body
    How juicing replaces the water in your cells
    Why proper hydration is a central function of our health


    Background and Guest Information:


    We are two-thirds water - by volume. In terms of the percentage of molecules, that two-thirds figure computes to a lot of water molecules: more than 99% of our molecules are water molecules.


    That leads to the hypothesis that proper hydration is a central feature of function, and therefore of health.


    Join Dr. Ritamarie and Dr. Gerald Pollack as they discuss his research on the power of water to help us understand secrets of nature and health. The energy that builds EZ water is light, so if you drink water that’s been exposed to light it has more energy.


    Gerald Pollack, PhD, is a Professor of Bioengineering at the University of Washington and an international leader in the field of water research. Dr. Pollack runs the Pollack Laboratory at the University of Washington, which focuses on uncovering some of nature’s most deeply held secrets.
