1687: Jessica Viker Shares Shocking Reason Why She Had To Get Out Of Critical Care Nursing
On today’s episode of the LLVLC Show, Jessica Viker, BSN, RN, stops by to talk about the state of Critical Care Nursing. “We are not the same. Bioindividuality is REAL. What works for me won’t work for my mom or anyone else.” - Jessica Viker Registered Nurse Jessica Viker’s (@keto_nurse_jess) health journey started about 7 years ago, when she just didn’t feel well. As a nurse at a busy hospital, she knew what tired felt like, but this was a whole new level of exhausted. Her hair was falling out, her skin was dry, and she was perpetually cold. She had gained weight out of nowhere over the past 10 years, and not only could she not get it off, she kept gaining! After literally YEARS of different doctors, lab tests, frustration and misdiagnosis, she was finally diagnosed with chronic reverse T3 hypothyroidism, (triggered by a viral infection), and hormonal dysfunction. It was then that she set out on the journey to reclaim her health. Listen in today as Jessica joins Jimmy to talk about her health journey, diving into nursing, why whole-30 didn’t give her the results she wanted, why keto was such a revelation to her, why it’s okay to admit what we don’t know, why diet is only adjunct therapy, why epidemiology is just confirmation bias, why understanding what your goals are is important, why PCOS is prevalent now, how metabolic syndrome is rearing its head in new ways, and so much more.

Hormone Harmony: The End Of PMS, Cramps, Infertility, & Cycle Chaos W/ Alisa Vitti (For Men Too!) #311
I am extremely excited to share this episode with Alisa Vitti, folks, because I think this one is going to end a lot of suffering — not only for our female listeners but for anyone who is in a relationship with females and wants to understand how to best support them. If you’re not familiar, Alisa’s wisdom is unparalleled when it comes to women's hormonal and reproductive health. She is a pioneer in female biohacking, the founder of FLO Living and the MyFLO App, the author of "Woman Code" and "In The FLO," and the creator of a Cycle Syncing Method that has transformed the health and life of thousands of women. Alisa first started down this path because she wanted to understand more about her own body and health. Over and over, she felt misunderstood and mistreated by the medical system and wellness industry. From pharmaceuticals to diets to fitness programs, everything is based on research done to men, so women never get the results they’re hoping for. Through years of researching and writing, she uncovered that each individual woman needs something tailored for their unique female hormonal pattern to truly feel their best — and FLO28 is the culmination of all that research. This is a lifestyle program based on her Cycle Syncing Method. What makes this different from anything else out there is that it’s a food, exercise, and time management program based on your actual female biology and hormones. And it’s the only program based on your INFRADIAN RHYTHM. It turns out that having an infradian rhythm causes changes in a woman’s metabolism, brain, stress and other systems. So, basically, you need to take care of your body differently throughout the 4 phases of your cycle. Every month, you’ll get recipes, shopping lists, meal plans, and workout videos for each phase of your cycle. You’ll also get a revolutionary time management system to organize and optimize your life. On top of that, you’ll get direct support from Alisa through her monthly Master Classes, where you can get your questions answered. I’m so excited to be able to offer this special opportunity to my community!

Are you aware of the dangers of EMF exposure in your home, but have no idea where to start when it comes to finding, and fixing them? Are you concerned about your exposure to the current 3G, 4G, and 5G wireless networks now activated in most major cities? Have you attempted to test the levels yourself using EMF meters you found online and ended up confused and frustrated? EMFs (electromagnetic frequencies) are one of the most toxic elements in our living and work environments. Due to the technical nature of accurately testing for them—and the training required to do so properly—many of us resign ourselves to the fact that we just have to accept them and the consequences they bring in order to use the modern technology we depend on. But you don’t have to. In this seven-part video documentary series, you will follow world-renowned building biologist Brian Hoyer as he tests an entire home, room by room, to determine the source and level of every known type of EMF.

Whitney Miller: Polyamory, Vulva Mapping, and Having Great Sex
Do you wonder how your sex life can improve our relationships– with others and with yourself–either in a monogamous, a polyamory, or an open relationship? In this conversation with Whitney Miller, we talk about the dynamics of monogamous vs. polyamory relationship, we go deep into details of sexuality within relationships and we discuss a very interesting pleasure exploration technique of the vulva: the vulva mapping. In her past polyamory experience, she shares what she learned about herself to be able to thrive in it, namely understand why she got jealous, why she got sad, and how she was able to cultivate meaningful relationships with women by having to constantly have vulnerable conversations which allowed her to truly love the other women. Often, relationships help us to open up a part of ourselves that needs to be exposed in order to heal and to know ourselves better: our thought processes, our patterns, and how we respond to challenges. Whitney tells us how deeply transformative this process was in her open relationship with Audrey Marcus and how that forced her to profoundly dive into herself. She shares with us intimate details of her preferences with candid honesty, so if you are dating or looking to date women this could be a key to understanding what might arouse and please a woman before and during sex. And it’s not at all just about sex: asking the other person meaningful questions is likely to be a skill that enables them to open up. Whitney also tells us what are her own favourites questions, what she finds attractive in a man, and how playfulness is so important. Whitney is a love, sex, and relationship coach: an expert in the realm of union between partners and sexuality. Former Miss United States and sports anchor Whitney Miller has found her true calling helping individuals and couples. Her experiential journey to self-mastery started 5 years ago with her well-publicized open relationship with her fiancé, Aubrey Marcus. Whitney has since joined forces with some of the leading scientists and researchers in the field, and now hosts talks and workshops around the world. What we discuss: [00:04:47] Letting go of how Whitney thought life should be has been making her more open to change. [00:05:50] Where Whitney's need for protecting herself comes from. [00:07:09] What permitted the sensation of safety to let people in Whitney's life. [00:08:34] Why the relationship with Aubrey was fundamental to Whitney's self-discovery. [00:09:09] How we receive superpowers and faults from our parents and our relationships. [00:10:42] Why Whitney thinks there is usefulness in suppressing emotions. [00:11:48] Whitney's latest Ayuashca experience showed her to go over one fear in particular. [00:14:39] Making it through life instead of living life: "If you let out what is within you, it will heal you. If you hold it in, it will destroy you". [00:15:57] Qualities in a man that are attractive to Whitney. [00:17:18] What was attractive in Aubry from Whitney's perspective. [00:19:06] Why Whitney and Aubrey were sincere about the constraints of their polyamorous relationship. [00:20:31] What Whitney feel she learned from her experience in a polyamorous relationship [00:21:39] Is polyamory sustainable and does it have longevity? [00:24:27] Whitney's present terms of relationship preferences. [00:29:38] How does a man show he holds the qualities of stability and safety? [00:32:11] Is it possible to hold a certainty about the relationship course? [00:33:21] What is the process of stepping back and re-access in a relationship? [00:35:59] Whitney's experience in relationships in which one partner goes through change and the other isn't [00:38:07] What good sex means for Whitney. [00:46:14] How does a woman want a vulva massage? [00:46:55] What is vulva mapping and how to do it. [00:48:25] Butt play and anal sex. [00:51:45] What is the perfect set up for sex? [00:54:12] How does Aaron creates contact? [00:56:01] How to ask meaningful questions about the other person. Find more from Whitney: Instagram: @whitnlove Website: Podcast:

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 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 Sponsor: This episode of The Healthy Rebellion Radio is sponsored by White Oak Pastures.

How to Use Biomedical Testing to Find Problems Inside Your Body
Back when we first started working with clients we ordered all the fancy tests for everyone who walked in the door. We tested the gut (not one test, but two), hormones, cortisol, and organic acids, to name a few. It got to be pretty expensive but it seemed to be the best way to figure out exactly what to do next. Our process has evolved over the years, and now we start with just simple, inexpensive blood chemistry. This saves our clients a ton of money and time, and they still get great results. On the podcast today, NBT Scientific Director and coach Megan Hall and I discuss the advanced (and not-so-advanced) biomedical tests we’ve run for clients over the years. We talk about the ones we still use and the ones we quit - and why. Megan explains why you should be sceptical of genetic testing, and the wealth of information you can derive from basic blood chemistry. We also talk about, the software we use at NBT to give personalised predictions of problems in your body that can help you decide on further testing and/or actions you want to take. We also talk about some software improvements I’ve made recently. Here’s the outline of this interview with Megan Hall: [00:02:23] Megan's outline for this podcast.
