084: Travis Christofferson - How Our Health Care System Keeps You Sick
Play episode · 1 hr 9 min

If you’re a regular listener of this podcast, you’ve heard Dr. Anthony Gustin talk about how cancer may come from a metabolic origin with other guests on the show.

Since this topic was extensively covered already, this episode with author and science writer Travis Christofferson takes the conversation further.

So you’ll hear more about treating cancer with supplemental theories, but that’s just the beginning of what Dr. Anthony Gustin and Travis get into.

While diving into this research, Travis quickly discovered that our health care system is failing patient success rates and it doesn’t have to be this way.

When you tune into the episode, you’ll hear more about what’s really preventing us from lowering health care costs, why supplemental therapies aren’t being used, and what needs to change to fix this.

Travis and Dr. Gustin also get into why the war on cancer is so ineffective, why cancer rates are really down, and so much more.

If you don’t know Travis, he’s the author of Tripping Over the Truth, and his latest book, Curable, outlines the exact blueprint needed to transform our health care system.

Travis has also earned a master’s degree in material engineering and science and he’s the founder of The Foundation for Metabolic Cancer Therapies.

By checking out the episode, you’ll learn more about Travis’ background, whether or not it’s possible to fix this situation, and how we get to that point.

Tune in now to learn more.

Join The Healthy Rebellion Please Subscribe and Review: Apple Podcasts | RSS Submit your questions for the podcast here Show Notes: News topic du jour: Iatrogenics: Why Intervention Often Leads to Worse Outcomes Iatrogenics is when a treatment causes more harm than benefit. As iatros means healer in Greek, the word means “caused by the healer” or “brought by the healer.” Healer, in this sense, need not mean doctor, but anyone intervening to solve a problem. For example, it could be a thought leader, a CEO, a government, or a coalition of the willing. Nassim Taleb calls these people interventionistas. Often these people come armed with solutions to solve the first-order consequences of a decision but create worse second and subsequent order consequences. Luckily, for them at least, they’re never around to see the train wreck they created. 1. Eating For Kidney Disease [23:54] Tyler says: Hey Robb, Years ago, you wrote a multi-part post about kidney health, and mentioned a former client at NorCal S&C who was recommended dialysis. One of your coaches instructed him to eat super low carb, and about the same protein (around 10% for both macros), and the rest of his diet consisting of fat. The end result (at least in your article) was that he recovered a great deal of his kidney function... Now that I’ve told you about your own article (lol), here are my questions: 1. Is that still a protocol you’d recommend for someone with stage 4 kidney disease? 2. If so, what can you even eat on an 80% fat diet? This info is for my mother-in-law. She’s almost 70, and has kidney disease presumedly brought on by Henoch-Schoenlein Purpura. She lives in Japan so she has access to great quality seafood, but coconut products are uncommon. I’ve been trying to get her to quit eating bread, rice and soy products as a start. She still eats some dairy. Are there any foods within a typical Paleo diet she should avoid? For example, fruit? She is prescribed some type of steroid (not sure what or how much), and is of normal weight, and does not take any blood pressure meds that I know of. Not expecting any type of miraculous full recovery, just wanting to help her get the most she can out of life. Thanks for any direction you might be able to guide me towards. PS: the wife and I are huge fans of LMNT, and you were right: do NOT accidentally (Or purposely) inhale the Lemon Habanero dust!! Low carbohydrate diet may reverse kidney failure in people with diabetes Researchers have for the first time determined that the ketogenic diet, a specialized high-fat, low carbohydrate diet, may reverse impaired kidney function in people with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. 2. Muscle Mass [33:04] Ben says: Hey Robb, Love the work you have done and really appreciate all that you do. FYI Sacred Cow was a phenomenal book, very nice work. I am writing in regards to muscle mass. You have mentioned previously on the importance of muscle mass as we age and starting around age 30 we will start loosing it slowing and/or it's much harder to gain muscle mass as we age. My question is how much muscle mass should I be aiming for. For context I am a 30 year-old male, 6'4", 218-225 lbs 8-10% body fat (depending on season). The reason I ask is I enjoy competing in Crossfit; however, am uncertain if I should focus more on trying to put on more mass or if moving forward with these numbers seems appropriate? Ultimately I do enjoy competing, but don't want to become decrepit when I'm older. (Other info if it helps-- squat- 425 DL- 545 Be- 325 Fran 2:45. I have never done full extensive blood work but my most recent basic blood work ie Chem 7, testosterone, basic lipid panel all looked "normal".) Thanks for all you do, Ben 3. LDL Up 102 points [36:47] Clint says: Hey Robb- I recently got some blood work done for work and I was pretty amazed at my lipid profile. My total cholesterol went from 148 to 268. LDL went from 86-188. Triglycerides went down 62-54 and HDL increased from 50-69. My GP wasn’t too concerned bc the triglycerides decreased and HDL increased but he still wants me to monitor it. The two weeks leading up to my blood work have been mostly carnivore-esque as I’ve noticed some headaches from fruit and indigestion with some veggies. I sneak in some full fat dairy by means of a little heavy whipping cream, I cook with kerrygold butter, and have a little kerrygold cheese from time to time. I’m 6’2” 186lbs at about 8-10% body fat. I do drink about 40 Oz of French press coffee per day and I know that can muck with LDL but I’m not so sure of that big of an increase over 3 years. Exercise- I Do some variation of cardio 4-6 times per week and flirt with some CrossFit style workouts 1-2 times per week. I dropped the intensity since going more low carb/carnivore as to not fry myself. Protein intake usually consists of chicken (all parts, not just a breast guy), beef (steak, burgers), eggs, Wild planet sardines, wild caught salmon, etc... I never cook with coconut oil or seed oils (coconut never agreed with me). I’ll eat some stevia sweetened dark chocolate a couple times per week. I’ve been sleeping 6-8 hours per night (2 kids going on 3). Any insight from your experience as to why my bloodwork took a shit? I’ve been relatively low carb for years. Thanks! Total cholesterol and all-cause mortality by sex and age: a prospective cohort study among 12.8 million adults ~ 4. Is Bone Broth Made In Pressure Cooker Healthy?? [45:56] Matthew says: Hi Nicki and Robb, Appreciate your work and show. Question: I have a hard time digesting bone broth, it gives me some digestive upset and I can't really consume it, even though I know I could use the gut healing benefits. I have issues with histamines, so that may be a big reason since it's typically slow-cooked, which is one of the things that creates a lot of histamines in foods and is an issue for those with histmaine tolerance issues (I'm working on that issue, but it's a long healing trajectory). I've heard a little about using a pressure cooker like and instant pot to make bone broth, which allws it to be done more swiftly, but I can't find any information on how beneficial it is when made in pressure cooker. Is it as good as when it's slow-cooked, in terms of nutritional value? Curious if you might have any information or insights on this. Many thanks! Matthew Oakland, CA http://delicatebelly.com/low-histamine-bone-broth/ chicarones? 5. Biochemistry For Beginners [48:47] Hoby says: Robb, Love your podcast and books, and listening to you and some others in the Paleo/keto/carnivore universe, I hear a lot of biochemistry discussed. I have a medical background from military service, but biochemistry was not a subject I got a lot of info in... I was wondering if you had a recommendation on a “ biochemistry for dummies” book. I appreciate any recommendations you may have.. Hoby http://watcut.uwaterloo.ca/webnotes/Metabolism/ Sponsor: This episode of The Healthy Rebellion Radio is sponsored by White Oak Pastures.

Kara Collier: Continuous Glucose Monitoring To Inspire Behavior Modification, Disease Protection, and Health Optimization
*Kara is the co-founder and Director of Nutrition for* *NutriSense* ( http://nutrisense.io ) *, a full-service health education company specializing in the cutting edge health and medical technology of Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM). What was previously a surgical procedure to implant a sensor is now a simple patch on the arm that delivers real-time glucose values to your smartphone.* ** This amazing technology transcends the minimal insights offered by a one-time fasting blood glucose value obtained during a routine blood test. Regulating glucose (and consequently, insulin production) over a lifetime is believed to be one of the most important ways to steer clear of epidemic metabolic disease and improve your health and well-being. In this show, Kara will describe the three key blood glucose attributes that are critical to health. Besides striving for a fasting blood glucose value under 100 (Kara wants to see you under 90!), it’s also important to have a tight glucose variability and a strong ability to quickly lower post-prandial (after a meal) glucose back to your baseline in a short time. Perhaps the greatest attribute of Apps like NutriSense is the power and motivation it gives to the user to promote behavior modification. When users apply a patch for a two-week journey into the glucose values, they have a Registered Dietician coach at their service to guide them with 1:1 support. In this show, we discuss some amazing insights provided by the App. Kara reacted quite differently to bananas versus sweet potatoes. Indeed, our genetic particulars and perhaps our gut microbiome goes far beyond the guessing game of the glycemic index and helps you make the best choices. Mia Moore used the CGM to facilitate a remarkable improvement in glucose in only two weeks. Coming on the heels of extreme work hours and less activity, she put the patch and went on a two-week hiking binge and increased daily fasting and ancestral-aligned meals. She moved from a pre-diabetic reading at the doctor’s office (during a hectic work period of less activity) into the exceptional metabolic health category with extremely tight glucose regulation and post-prandial glucose control. I noticed an extreme glucose spike in conjunction with workouts, which is actually expected and desirable. I also obtained the insight that combining high intensity sprint workouts with extensive daily fasting and carnivore-ish low carb intake at meals with being in the advanced age groups while trying to perform these magnificent sprinting/high jump workouts could represent an excess of stressors. Kara provides an excellent description of the so-called, “metabolic insulin resistance” experienced by superfit, low-carb intake athletes. The body produces insulin so minimally that cells become desensitized to insulin signaling. This is not a disease pattern like a high carb, inactive person developing pathological insulin resistance, but there is an argument for strategic intake of nutrient-dense carbohydrates, especially in conjunction with workouts and especially for older dudes trying to push and sometimes exceed their athletic capabilities with tough workouts. Relatedly, you may have noticed the @CarnivoreMD ( https://www.instagram.com/carnivoremd/ ) Dr. Paul Saladino touting his strategic binges of honey (technically carnivore, after all) to fine tune insulin sensitivity. If you have concerns about your glucose levels and consequent disease risk factors, getting a CGM going is absolutely essential. If you are metabolically healthy and just looking to optimize your food choices, exercise routines, and insulin sensitivity, you will love the self-quantification and accumulation of insights that you can carry with you over the long term. Enjoy a fascinating show with Kara and learn more about her operation at NutriSense.io ( https://www.nutrisense.io/ ) *TIMESTAMPS:* You can get a patch sensor to put onto your arm for continuous glucose monitoring with a read out directly into your smartphone. [01:35] How did Kara get involved? She saw the need to address metabolic health from an early stage. [05:50] When using these monitors, you get support from dietitians and educational personnel. [07:42] Glucose is influenced by eating carbs or not, and  also your activity level, stress, sleep…all these factors.  People respond to food uniquely. [11:07] There's a lot of research to show that microbiome composition is a primary determinant of those various glycemic responses. [14:29] What are the goals and main things we are looking for? How high is the glucose getting? [17:11] The connection of glucose levels and cardiovascular is really strong. [23:42] If we have a bunch of fat in a standard American meal, it slows down digestion. Then glucose takes a long time to go through the system. [25:07] The damage is worse on the longest lasting cells and tissues in the body. [29:48] Is there any concern about not getting these occasional glucose spikes? [32:14] For people on a low carb diet, there can be a problem because your body says, “I’m not getting enough carbs, so I have to increase the glucose I make.” [34:42] It’s important to look for a strategy where there is strategic inclusion of carbohydrates to fine tune that insulin sensitivity. [37:42] Sometimes when we’re putting too much stress on our body, then trying to fast, we might see some glucose increase. [41:38] Going on walks after a meal or walking in a fasted state is one of the easiest ways to make a quick turnaround.  [43:34] Our brains are hardwired to want instant gratification. [45:54] After an argument, the glucose spiked high because of the fight or flight response. [48:45] If you are feeling crappy after a particular meal, it indicates that the glucose is circulating around and the insulin is coming and it’s taking too long to get back to feeling normal. [50:11] Without this glucose monitor on your arm, you can still learn a lot from journaling how you feel. What you ate. Which components of my meals are making me feel cruddy. The time of day you are eating makes a difference. [51:09] There is a decided difference among the foods and how they are processed.  [53:14] It might take one to three months to gather all the insights you want on your health journey. [55:34] The people who are using NutriSense present a lot of data.  What are the trends from the client demographic? [56:17] For some many years, we have been told to eat carbs (Standard American Diet). The new information we have now needs to become common practice before it’s too late. [57:44] What does it cost to get started with NutriSense? [01:02:00] The support you provide with this program is exceptional.
