Electrolytes, Water Retention, Protein & Ketones on Keto and Carnivore with Dr. Angela Stanton - Part 2
This episode is about Electrolytes, Water Retention, Protein & Ketones on Keto and Carnivore with Dr. Angela Stanton. Part 2 of 2 episodes, with part 1 out Monday of this week. "I am a migraine expert by default because I have been a migraine sufferer since my childhood. My doctorate is in a field of neuroscience that incorporates several specialties with the focus on neurotransmitters associated with decision-making. Economic games and heavy mathematics are used in this field of research. My official degree is doctorate in Economics with dissertation in neuroscience. This field is referred to as Neuroeconomics. I now study how the brain and nutrition interrelate. I specifically focus on migraine as a channelopathy, where electrolyte imbalance induced by glucose sensitivity and carbs intolerance is causing havoc. My latest book “Fighting the Migraine Epidemic: A Complete Guide. How to Treat & Prevent Migraines Without Medicines” is available in paperback and e-book all over the world (https://www.amazon.com/Fighting-Migraine-Epidemic-Migraines-Medicines-ebook/dp/B076BZG2V3). I am currently working on a ketosis book (the various ways of eating, such as carnivore, ketogenic, and even the low carbs high fat, that can get a person into ketosis) that is custom tailored to migraineurs, because their reaction to nutrition is so different from others and because they need so different electrolytes. My focus is on the importance of electrolytes and nutrition for migraine-free (and medicine free) life."

Brian Sanders - Filmmaker of Food Lies & Health Coach
Part 113 - Ben Pakulski on How to Overcome Your Genetics (and Past), the Most Efficient Way to Build Muscle, and How to Eat
Welcome back everyone! I’m Brian Sanders and this is Peak Human - the podcast where you start back at episode 1! I met Ben at our Toronto MeatUp in 2019 and really like him - maybe it’s because he eats pretty similar to how I do - 2 Sapien meals per day of mostly animal foods and low anti-nutrient plant foods on the side. Seriously though he’s really great and has an awesome mindset on pretty much everything. Goes way beyond building muscle - which is important for absolutely everyone listening. It’s not about being a bodybuilder and we don’t talk much about that - it’s about effectively doing some kind of workout to carry some lean muscle mass which everyone needs and will benefit them as they age. His info is legit - I already have been getting a better workout since we recorded this episode last week. I took some of his advice and went slower, stayed under control and focused on the muscles I was trying to work and was sore the next for the first time. Gyms are still closed in LA so all I have is my living room yet I was still able to train my muscles hard in my little 15 min routine I do. We actually talk way more about the mental side to diet, health, and living a meaningful life. This really was a great episode that touched on so many important topics that haven't been explored with previous guests.

Make your health an act of rebellion. Join The Healthy Rebellion Please Subscribe and Review: Apple Podcasts | RSS Submit your questions for the podcast here Show Notes: News topic du jour: Reaction of Human Monoclonal Antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 Proteins With Tissue Antigens: Implications for Autoimmune Diseases 1. Vitamin D while pregnant [27:55] Lori says: Hi Robb and Nikki! I have heard you mention in the past that you are a proponent for using tanning beds to improve vitamin D levels. I have also found this to be helpful at keeping my levels up in the winter months and have seen big improvements at fighting off the winter blues. However, I am pregnant so I am curious if this is a huge "no" and I need to only rely on my supplement? The supplement alone has never been enough to keep me out of the lull in mood that I experience in the winter. I am currently in my first trimester of pregnancy. I have Native American heritage, so I am fairly dark complected and do not burn easily. I live in Texas which may be slightly better for UV exposure, but work 5 days a week indoors so it is guaranteed that during the winter my sunlight exposure plummets. Should I just suck it up and deal with the mood and only take a supplement? Or would a couple days a week of tanning bed be ok to get me through the next few months during my first and second trimester? Thanks for your input! 2. Fungus and Mycotoxins [32:17] Sean says: I have been following you guys for many years now, listened to All your podcast episodes (Paleo Solution up to Rebellion Radio)! I don’t remember you guys talking about the role Fungus (Candida) plays with all this metabolic disruption. Diabetes, Cancer, Arthritis, Alzheimer, Lupus… Perhaps we have a Ptolemy science understanding of metabolic disorders? I recently found “Know the Cause” ~ and Doug Kaufmann’s ideas on the subject, sorry but he has made me second guess what’s really going on. I'm curious how deep is this “mycotoxin” problem? I understand and generally tend to agree with you on the Bulletproof coffee is great marketing, but until I get definitive understanding of the real causal problems of Fungus in general...I remain neutral, smooth talking salesman must be scrutinized all times. However it’s the only “root cause” theory that I’ve heard that could make sense. Not the insulin resistance theory, which could be proved if we actually measure the insulin levels, before during and after, injecting mycotoxins into mice and rats to give them diabetes! Darn circular logic!! 3. Post workout insulin [37:04] Chris says: Hi Robb, I was wondering about post workout insulin Spike. Did the Bros have it right with spiking insulin post workout with high GI carbs to get more muscle? Or should we keep insulin on the low side so we don't get more fat? Thanks! 4. What to ask for to get the most impactful blood test [41:28] Nate says: Hi Robb and Nicki, I plan on getting a blood test through my doctor. I'm guessing all blood tests are not created equal. So do I simply ask for a "blood test", or do I ask for a blood test that measures "xyz"? And if the ladder, what would be your "xyz" to get measured? And also please provide an optimal range for each. [More info below if it is helpful] For context on what I'm personally looking to accomplish: I'm a 33 year old male, been off and on with Keto for years, Keto is my holy grail for getting back to my prime condition (following your Keto Masterclass regimen of higher protein, adequate sodium, and not-so-crazy-on-the-fat has been the most effective and enjoyable way for me). I've been fully back on a good Keto regimen for two months now. I'm 5 10, weigh 210 lbs, but muscular, at around 12-17% body fat. I (thankfully) seem to put on muscle fairly easy from heavy, slow, and low rep weight lifting 1-2 times a week. However I'm still working to get this tire of fat off of my hips/waste. Other than that the rest of my body seems lean and muscular. My general Keto Mojo numbers are as follows: Ketones: 1.4-2.4 mmol/L. Blood glucose: 76-85mg/dl upon waking and I manage to stay in the 90s even after eating. And whatever these two things are: HTC 25-45% Hb: 8-14% I want to see in my blood work where I fall on the scale of optimal health while on Keto, so that I can spot problem areas or deficiencies. As I'm approaching my mid 30s I know testosterone is one thing I'd like to have tested, as I have felt like it has decreased (which I know you've mentioned happens when someone dives right into keto and weightlifting after being a chub). So, what would you ask your doctor to test for in a blood test? And what numbers (ranges) would you be absolutely thrilled to receive back from the test? Absolutely love the Q&A format. Longtime fan since 2012, books, Keto Masterclass, Podcast. I hope you and Nicki continue with this format. The episodes help me look forward to being successful on my diet. https://precisionhealthreports.com/ there is special pricing for healthy rebellion members - just one more reason to join THR :) 5. Calcium supplementation on a carnivore diet. [45:16] Saul says: Hey Robb, discovered your show listening to Paul Saladino podcast and I am loving it! Every time I learn something new, thanks so much for what you do! You are also a libertarian, that is freaking amaxzing! Hahaha Also love your interactions with Nikki! 🤣🤣🤣 So a bit of context, I am 29years old, 150 pounds 5'8" , I follow a carnivore diet with honey, I eat 500g meat a day, 2 ounces of liver, some whey post workout and I do greek yogurt to get calcium in my diet. I also take vit D and boron. I read that calcium is essential to produce melatonin and I noticed that when I dont consume greek yogurt or any other dairy, I tend to wake up in the middle of night and when I do consume, i sleep very well. So I was listening to your podcast last week when you said that there is a huge difference between grassfed and grainfed dairy. I would like to let it go of the dairy just for a test and since here where I live, in Portugal, grassfed dairy are way more expensive than grainfed dairy and I still want to have calcium at my diet, I would like to know what are your thoughts on calcium supplementation, is there any form that is safe? Paul said that calcium citrate is not a good idea because it can cause heart and kidney malfunction. He suggested for me to do bone broth, but I am a graduate student and every bit of time that I can save, I do so bone broth is kind inconvenient. Thank you so much!

MTHFR, Depression, Irritability, and Anxiety | Masterjohn Q&A Files #186
Question: MTHFR, Depression, Irritability, and Anxiety So, if someone has an MTHFR snip, they don't have enough methylfolate. And so if they're treating it with methylfolate, the methylfolate causes the depression, irritability, and anxiety, then that's one thing. Whereas, if they have the MTHFR snip, they're not doing anything about it and they have depression, irritability, anxiety, that's another thing. So, if they're not doing anything about it and they have those problems, then it's probably from under-methylation. If they're supplementing methylfolate and that's causing the depression, irritability and anxiety, then my guess is that that is a temporary transient over-methylation state. That is a result of the body being adapted to a low methylfolate state and suddenly switching to a high methylfolate state. And I think the key to getting through that is to take small doses of the methylfolate and equilibrate to the lowest dose. This is my "Start Here for Methylation" page I mentioned: https://chrismasterjohnphd.com/blog/2019/03/01/start-here-for-mthfr-and-methylation If you would like to be part of the next live Ask Me Anything About Nutrition, sign up for the CMJ Masterpass, which includes access to these live Zoom sessions, a private discussion group, premium features on all my content, and hundreds of dollars of exclusive discounts.

127: Dr. Anthony Jay - What Your Genes Can Tell You About Your Health Risks
You probably already know that your genes dictate things like your hair color, eye color, and how tall you are, but did you know they can also give you important details on your health risks for conditions like obesity and type 2 diabetes? And that’s just the beginning. As Dr. Anthony Jay, a best-selling author and lead researcher for the Mayo Clinic, shares in this episode, your genes can also clue you into a number of different health issues. They can tell you how your lifestyle can affect your health, what your risk factors are for chronic diseases, the best exercises to perform, and how you handle vitamins and hormonal issues, among other things. Dr. Jay also shows how modifying certain things can change the way your genes are affected and he shares all of this in this podcast episode. When you tune in, you’ll hear Dr. Jay go through Dr. Anthony Gustin’s genetic report to share what he should and shouldn’t do to mitigate his health risks and improve his overall health. Dr. Anthony Jay received his Ph.D in biochemistry from Boston University’s Medical School where he later went off to study Alzheimer’s disease, hormonal health, fats, and cholesterol. He then went on to become a lead researcher at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota where he spends his time studying epigenetics, infrared light, and stem cells. He also published a best-selling book titled, Estrogeneration: How Estrogenics Are Making You Fat, Sick, and Infertile, to show people how removing hormone disrupting chemicals from your life can improve your health. When you tune in, you’ll discover how it’s possible to improve your health by understanding your specific genes better. Check out the episode now to learn more!

Ep. 132 Continuous Glucose Monitors: Why They’re Not Just for Diabetics Anymore with Kara Collier
We are excited today to have Kara Collier joining us as our guest. Kara is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and Certified Nutrition Support Clinician with a background in clinical nutrition, nutrition technology, and entrepreneurship. After becoming frustrated with the traditional healthcare system, Kara helped start the company NutriSense, where she is now the Director of Nutrition. She is the leading authority on the use of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) technology, particularly in non-diabetics for health optimization, disease prevention, and reversing metabolic dysfunction. Kara oversees the health team and product development and has personally interpreted thousands of complex glucose datasets. Part of Kara’s frustration with the Western medical mindset is that in a hospital or clinical setting, the priority is usually to medicate and treat people as quickly as possible and then get them out. People are in and out of the hospital all the time, and they are suffering because the root cause of their problem, which is usually their lifestyle, is not getting addressed. In this episode, Kara talks about blood sugar levels and explains why CGMs (continuous glucose monitors) are useful for everyone and not just diabetics. Be sure to stay tuned to learn how food influences your blood sugar and how you can make the best nutritional choices for your health and wellness. Show highlights: * Kara explains what it was about the traditional Western medicine mindset related to food and nutrition that prompted her to second guess what she was doing. * Kara defines normal in terms of what we would ideally like to see for a fasting glucose level. * What people need to be concerned about regarding their hemoglobin A1C. * Kara discusses where she prefers to see the ranges for fasting insulin. * Some of the things that can influence someone's postprandial reading. * Kara explains what happens in our bodies when our blood sugar values are not where they should be. * Kara discusses what she is seeing in terms of the impact on glucose from certain types of diets, like keto and vegan. * The differences between men and women. * What a CGM is. * Why should everyone wear a CGM, not just diabetics. * How different types of exercise impact your blood sugar values. * The benefits of fasting and the impact of fasting on your blood sugar.
