180 Nutrition -The Health Sessions.

This week we welcome back Michele Chevalley Hedge to the show. Michele is a Nutritional Medicine Practitioner, (Adv. Dip of Nutritional Medicine, Australia Traditional Medicine Society) and the author of many health related articles. She also has proven strategies to incorporate good nutrition into a fast paced family, as the mother of three teenage children and her own busy practice. She can empathise with all types! A Healthy View recently has expanded Sydney operations to open in New York, with its new online family wellness program Low Sugar Lifestyle.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What are the tell-tale signs of hormone imbalance?
  • In terms of nutrition, what foods most negatively impact our hormones?
  • How long does it typically take to start seeing (and feeling) positive results?

This week, I'm excited to welcome Michele Chevalley Hedge. Michele is a highly commended nutritionist, health writer and presenter who is often introduced as the modern day nutritionist, the one who likes a bit of wine and coffee. Love it. Her latest book, The Healthy Hormone Diet, offers a four week reset to help reduce weight, increase energy, and improve mood, which is what we're gonna talk about today.

01:07 Now, I really love Michele's approach to health and nutrition, and I know you'll enjoy this interview as much as I did. Over to Michele.

01:19 Hey guys. This is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I'm delighted to welcome Michele Chevalley Hedge back to the show. Good afternoon Michele. How are you?

Michele

01:27 Hi Stu. Thanks for having me on.

Stu

01:29 No problems. Look, before we jump into all of the good bits about the show today, I would love it if you could just tell our listeners a little bit about who you are and what you do.

Michele

01:40 Okay, sure. My name is Michele Chevalley Hedge. I'm a qualified nutritionist, and I'm the founder of A Healthy View. And I chose that name for my business because as a nutritionist I believe in a healthy view, and not an extreme one. I'm often introduced as the modern day nutritionist, the one who likes a little bit of a cheeky pinot, and a little bit of coffee, which I first, Stu, you know, when I was first introduced like that-

Stu: This week we welcome Jeff Chilton to the show. He has been in the mushroom industry since 1973. He is a founding member of the World Society for Mushroom Biology and Mushroom Products and a member of the International Society for Mushroom Science. Jeff Chilton’s company, Nammex, was the first company to offer certified organic mushrooms to the supplement industry in the United States. Nammex extracts are used by many supplement companies and are considered high quality based on scientific analysis of the active compounds.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • Questions asked in the episode
  • Does the way mushrooms are grown affect their medicinal activity?
  •  Which single mushroom offers the most ‘bang for buck’?
  • How can we determine if mushroom supplements live up to their claims?

This week I'm excited to welcome Jeff Chilton. Jeff has been a pioneer in the medicinal mushroom industry every since he began his career working on a large commercial mushroom farm in the '70s. In this episode we discuss medicinal mushrooms, mushroom industry flaws and the surprising ingredient that may be lurking in your mushroom products. I wonder what that is.

01:06 Jeff is a wealth of knowledge, and given the recent popularity of mushroom supplements, a timely guest on the show. So let's head over to Jeff. Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition. And I'm delighted to welcome Jeff Chilton to the show. Good morning Jeff, how are you?

Jeff

01:28 Hi Stuart, how're you doing? I'm fine.

Stu

01:30 Very well thank you. I really appreciate you sharing some time with us today. And we generally start the show with asking our guests just to tell our audience a little bit about who you are and what you do as well please Jeff.

Jeff

01:47 I was born and raised in the Pacific northwest of the United States, in the Seattle area. And this is a part of the world that we call evergreen, so that we've got forests, and lots of lakes and rivers and waters. I came of age actually in the '60s, which was quite a time actually-

 This week we welcome Dr. William Davis to the show. He is a Milwaukee-based American cardiologist and author of health books known for his stance against "modern wheat", which he labels a "perfect, chronic poison." This view had previously been rejected by the medical and agricultural industry based on conjecture, minimal controlled studies, and challenges inherent to clinical research,however anecdotal evidence such as Dr. Davis's and among many patients in the western populace suggest more research is necessary to understand and measure physiological and psychological influences that gluten and today's contemporary cultivars of wheat may have on human health apart from non-therapeutic dietary trends. In a review of May 2015 published in Gastroenterology, Fasano et al. conclude that, although there is an evident "fad component" to the recent rise in popularity of the gluten-free diet, there is also growing and unquestionable evidence of the existence of non-celiac gluten sensitivity.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  •  Is wheat really as harmful as we’re led to believe?
  • What’s the connection of wheat consumption and heart disease?
  • Can 2 slices of wholewheat bread raise blood sugar levels higher than a snickers bar?

Stu

This week, I’m excited to welcome Dr. William Davis. Dr. Davis is a cardiologist and author of the New York Times best-selling book, Wheat Belly. He’s known for his stance against modern wheat, and believes that it’s the single largest contributor to the nationwide obesity epidemic. Fascinating stuff. In this episode, we discuss how he witnessed over 2000 patients regain their health, after giving up wheat. Also, get this, while eating a Snickers bar is less unhealthy than eating two slices of bread. You guys have been asking for this interview for a while now, and I’m truly honored to chat to Dr. Davis today. Let’s get into the show. 01:25 Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I am delighted to welcome Dr. William Davis to the show. Good morning Dr. Davis, although, it probably isn’t morning for you is it? It’s probably the afternoon.

William

01:36 It’s dinner time around here Stu.

Stu

01:37 Oh okay. No problems. Look, firstly thank you so much for sharing your time. For all those that may not be familiar with your work, and there probably won’t be that many people that aren’t, I would love for you to tell our listeners a little bit about who you are and what you do.

William

01:53 I practiced cardiology, interventional cardiology for about 25 years. Became very disenchanted, disappointment what that meant, and practiced preventive cardiology, but truly tried to stop and reverse coronary disease. Did it in many people, and that led to the writing of my Wheat Belly series of books, and then more recently the undoctored book.

Stu

00:03 Hey, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and welcome to another episode of The Health Sessions. It's here that we connect with the world's best experts in health, wellness and human performance in an attempt to cut through the confusion around what it actually takes to achieve long lasting health. Now, I'm sure that's something that we all strive to have. I certainly do.

00:23 Before we get into the show today, you might not know that we make products too. That's right. We're into whole food nutrition and have a range of superfoods and natural supplements to help support your day. If you are curious, want to find out more, just jump over to our website. That is 180nutrition.com.au and take a look. Okay, back to the show.
Stu: 00:44 This week, I'm excited to work with Amy Clover. Maybe has an inspiring story starting with OCD, depression and suicidal thoughts as a teenager to then go onto empower hundreds of thousands of people with her online community called Strong Inside Out. In this episode, we discuss how she used exercise to the flip the switch, how social media can lead us down the wrong path and the strategies that we can call upon when we're feeling down. She is filled with energy and has really made the connection between movement and mindset. I know that you will love this episode. Without further ado, let's get into the show.

01:23 Hwy guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Amy Clover to the show. Good morning Amy. Or don't say good morning, I think it's afternoon for you, isn't it?

Amy

01:33 It is. It is. But good morning to you.

Stu

01:36 Thank you so much. First up, for all of our listeners over here that might not be familiar with your work, I would love it if you could just tell us a little bit about yourself and what you do.

Amy

01:48 Sure, I am a coach. I'm a writer. I'm a teacher and I'm the force behind a movement called Strong Inside Out and what that is, is it all lives over in stronginsideout.com and we help people tear down these shaming metric-based health standard and replace them with individual health that just feels good instead.

Stu: This week we welcome Jim Kwik to the show. He is the founder of Kwik Learning and a widely recognized world expert in speed-reading, memory improvement, brain performance, and accelerated learning.

For over two decades, he has served as the brain coach to students, seniors, entrepreneurs, and educators, and as an advisor to many of the world’s leading CEOs and celebrities.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What do you say to those who self-label themselves as ‘just having a poor memory’?
  • What do you think are the most common roadblocks where learning is concerned?
  • What are your thoughts on artificial stimulants like coffee or energy drinks?
  • Do you think that nutrition can impact our mental performance?

 This week, I'm excited to welcome Jim Kwik. Now Jim is the founder of Kwik Learning, a widely recognized world expert in speed reading, memory improvement, brain performance, and accelerated learning. In this episode, we discuss the strategies he developed to improve the productivity of our brains, and on the flip side, the most common roadblocks that hold us back from our full potential.
Stu: 00:01:02 So if you think you've been burdened with a poor memory, or you struggle to remember phone numbers, or simply want to sharpen your brain, then you will get a lot from this interview. Anyway, enough rambling from me. Let's get into the show.

Stu

 00:01:18 Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I am delighted to welcome Jim Kwik to the show. Good morning, Jim. How are you?

Jim

00:01:25 Stu, thank you, and thank everybody who's joining us. Looking forward to this.

Stu

 00:01:29 Fantastic. So Jim, before we get into the nuts and bolts of the show today, I would love if you could just tell our listeners a little bit about yourself, what you do, why you do it, and go for it.

Jim

 00:01:46 Sounds good. Well, if people are listening to this episode, at some level they're probably interested in improving their mental performance, their focus, their memory, they want to read faster, they know their brain controls every aspect of their life. If people see me on stage or on YouTube, they've seen me memorize 100 people's names. Like literally, 100 people stand up and I'll remember their names, or they'll give me 100 words or 100 numbers, and I'll memorize them forwards and backwards.

But I always tell people, Stu, I don't do this to impress you. I do this more to express to you what's possible because the truth is every single person who's listening to this can do that and a lot more. The only challenge is we weren't taught. If anything, we were taught a lie, a lie that somehow our intelligence, our potential, our memory for instance is somehow fixed, like our shoe size.
