This week I’m excited to welcome Dr. Gurpreet Padda. Dr. Padda is a board-certified MD and the Medical Director of Reversing Diabetes MD. This online space features protocols designed to reverse disease in patients who are overweight or already have established prediabetes or diabetes. In this episode we talk about the secret to becoming a type 2 diabetic. We discuss common industry myths and how the Reverse Diabetes MD protocol can help address this global epidemic. Over to Dr. Padda.

Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Dr. Gurpreet Padda to the podcast. Dr Padda, how are you?

Dr Gurpreet

01:50 Excellent.

Stu

01:51 Good stuff. Well, look-

Dr Gurpreet

01:52 I appreciate being here.

Stu

01:52 Oh well look, we appreciate you sharing some of your time, especially on a late Sunday afternoon as well, so thank you for that. But first up, for all of our listeners that may not be familiar with you or your work, I would just love it if you could tell us a little bit about yourself before we get into the questions.

Dr Gurpreet

02:10 Yeah, so I’m a clinician. I actually practice medicine every single day. I see patients every single day. I started off as a physician, treating patients with extremely complex medical problems. I do interventional pain, so I see patients that have just horrendous symptoms and in my career, as I started to treat them, I realized that they had a commonality. You know, everybody talks about patients having fibromyalgia, people talk about patients having all of these symptoms, and I kept coming back to, well, what’s the common root cause for all of this? Is there something that I can treat? And it seemed to be progressing. It seemed to be getting worse. I’m 55 years, I started my career 30 plus years ago, and I’ve seen a dramatic shift in the patient population. This is not the same population that I started with when I first started. Patients were never this heavy, patients weren’t this diabetic. And now, three quarters, more than three quarters of my patients, are diabetic.

And so I’m trying to figure out, why is it that we’ve had this epidemic of diabetes? And what is it that we can do about it? And it brought me through a whole bunch of rabbit holes. I dug deep to figure this out. And it turns out it’s been in front of us the whole time. It’s the food that we’re eating. We don’t have an epidemic of diabetes. We have a pandemic of diabetes. If animals eat the same food that we eat, which is the standard American diet, they get the same disease. And at this point, we have rats in New York that are gigantic, that are diabetic, and they’re cognitively impaired, like Alzheimer’s, and they’re venturing out in the daytime because they have all this growth hormone, which is insulin pumping through their bodies, they’re gigantic, and their brains are defective and they’re out in the daytime and they’re dying. And so if you look at tourist places where you used to have thin dogs, and now thee tourist places have extremely fat dogs. You look at the monkeys at locations, the monkeys are getting huge.

And it’s not that we didn’t feed them before, we’re feeding them something different now. And those are the kinds of the conclusions that have come about. So we know how to make somebody diabetic now, I can guarantee I can make somebody diabetic in about two weeks.

This week, I'm excited to welcome Jake Steiner. Jake Steiner (SHTY-nuh) is a passionate advocate for eye health with a unique perspective: that we can reverse myopia (AKA nearsightedness) naturally. After a decade of research, Jake compiled enough peer-reviewed academic data to back his hypothesis that we've been looking at myopia all wrong, that the 100-billion-dollar-per-year retail optometry industry is little more than a cash cow, that our eyes are not broken, and that myopia is reversible. He's here to share his journey from a -5 diopter prescription to perfect 20/20 vision, as well as simple tips to help you naturally regain your perfect vision.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  •  What is Myopia and why does it occur?
  • What everyday practices could be unknowingly impacting our eye health?
  • Is it possible to improve our eyesight naturally?

https://180nutrition.com.au/

This week, I'm excited to welcome Jake Steiner. Jake is a stock trader and investor by day, and moonlights on myopia science, and creating awareness about the reality of human eyesight. Jake entirely eliminated his minus five diopter myopia and in the past decade, has helped over 1.2 million people reduce their dependence on corrective lenses. In this episode, we talk about the everyday practices that could be unknowingly impacting our eye health and the strategies that we can use to improve our eyesight naturally. Over to Jake.

Hey, guys. This is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I'm delighted to welcome Jake Steiner to the podcast. Jake, how are you?

Jake

01:30 Excellent. How are you doing, Stu?

Stu

01:32 Yeah, really good. Really good. Thank you so much for connecting. I think we're going to be talking about some things today that will intrigue people and prompt curiosity, and want to find out a lot more. So really, really looking forward to this conversation. But first up, for all of our listeners that may not be familiar with you or your work, I would love it if you could just tell us a little bit about yourself.

Jake

01:57 Sure. So I am an investor and a stock trader by trade, and I deal with eyesight more as something that started as a side hobby and a personal pursuit of mine, and that somehow over the years has turned into this big thing of discussing eyesight online with tens of thousands of followers and lots of discussion about myopia and its real causes.

This week, I'm excited to welcome  Clinton Ober who is CEO of EarthFX Inc., a research and development company located in Palm Springs. He first learned of grounding when marketing and installing Cable TV systems in Billings, Montana in the early 1960’s. A decade later, he formed Telecrafter Corporation and built it into the largest provider of cable installation services in the United States. This company specialized in proper grounding of cable installations for safety and signal stability. In the 1980’s, he turned his attention to the developing computer industry and partnered with McGraw-Hill to distribute live digital news services, via cable, to PCs. This led to development of the first cable modem and an increased awareness of need for proper system grounding. Following a health challenge in 1995, he retired and embarked on a personal journey looking for a higher purpose in life. During his travels, he noticed people wearing plastic and rubber soled shoes that insulate the body from earth. He wondered if no longer being naturally grounded could affect us. The question led to an experiment that suggested grounding reduced pain and improved sleep. He developed a working hypothesis: Grounding normalizes functioning of all body systems (Corollary: The body utilizes the earth’s electrical potential to maintain its internal electrical stability for the normal functioning of all self-regulating and self-healing systems). Over the past eighteen years, he has supported a host of research studies that collectively demonstrate that grounding reduces inflammation and promotes normal functioning of all body systems.

https://180nutrition.com.au/

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What is grounding and why should we be aware of it?
  • What are the best surfaces to ground ourselves?
  • Is grounding safe for everyone (kids, pregnancy etc)?

This week, I'm excited to welcome Clint Ober. Clint is a 30-year veteran of the cable television industry, who began investigating the effects of electrically grounding the human body to the earth. Over the past 18 years, he has supported a host of research studies that collectively demonstrate that grounding reduces inflammation and promotes normal functioning of all the body systems. In this episode, we talk about the science supporting grounding, and how we can easily implement this practice into our everyday lives. Over to Clinton.\.

Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I am delighted to welcome Clint Ober to the podcast. Clint, how are you?

Clint

01:29 I'm doing very good. I'm really appreciate you giving me the opportunity to visit [inaudible 00:01:34].

Stu

01:34 Well, I appreciate the time. Very, very interesting and intriguing treating topic today and I've been, I've been fascinated by this for forever, so great to be able to connect with you and actually understand the science behind it and your story. But first up, for everyone out there that may not be familiar with you or your work, I would love it if you could just tell our listeners a little bit about yourself please.

Clint

01:59 Okay. Well, I grew up in Montana. USA in Montana, and I grew up kind of in a rural environment, kind of an earthy environment, a cowboy, I guess, and back then a cowboy was somebody that stayed with the herd and just babysat them, and if you see one that's not doing well, you take them out of the herd and then you go ride the pasture and find out what's going on in the pasture that might have affected the cows.

So anyhow, that's where I started out. But after that, in my work life I spent about 30 years in the communications industry. Primarily television, cable television, microwave, blanks, down lights, you name it, a little bit of everything. But in that industry, I learned most importantly about grounding, and there you have to ground everything to the earth in order to maintain electrical stability in order to have good quality sound with no interference, pictures, data and everything. So, the world we have today, it's because of what we learned along the way in developing that industry and grounding everything. So, that's where I started.

I'm 75 now, and about 20, 21 years ago, maybe 20 or something like that, I was playing with a computer one day and it kept crashing, and this was back before the internet was very much, I mean, very active like it is today. But anyhow, the old computers that we had, the PCs, they would, if they weren't grounded, which they weren't back in those days, they were very unstable, and if you had static electricity on your body you could touch them and get a glitch and lock up the software. So, anyhow, I tried to figure out how to ground myself because it was happening too much, so I laid a piece of copper tape across my desk and connected it to a wire connected to like ground, and then I would touch it before I touched the computer, and then I never had any problems.

But, at that same time, I could go on, you know, a lot of stories in there. But that day that I did that, I intuitively, I walked outdoors and I sat on a bench, and I was in Sedona, Arizona, and a tour bus pulled up and the tourists they got off of it, they were obviously a Japanese tour group, and they all had these big white tennis shoes, like they had just been to a strip mall, or a outlet mall, and they had Nike shoes on sale. But for some reason, I looked up at the trees and I noticed the power lines and I noticed, and I just intuitively ask, "I wonder if there is a problem with humans no longer being naturally grounded?"

And that came out of nowhere. So anyhow, I didn't know, but as the day went on, I took a little bit of interest in it. I went home that night, started playing, I drug out a volt meter, and started measuring the difference in electrical potential on my body when I was grounded, not grounded, in the house not grounded, in the house grounded, but anyway, that night I was intrigued with the readings that I was finding on the volt meter, so I went to the hardware store and bought a roll of metalized aluminum duct tape, and I had a laid it across the bed, and threw a wire out the window. And there was a reason I was in the bedroom, because that's where the highest level of electric fields are generally, because you're laying in bed, and your head's close to the wallboard, and behind the wall are where all the electrical wires and stuff are. So anyhow, but that's where you have a little more exposure to the EMFs than not. And so anyway, I figured, well, so I did it in the bedroom, and it was late at night anyway, so I wanted to just lay down and watch TV, so I put the tape on the bed, through a window, I had one wire out the window and connected it to a ground rod, threw the second wire out the window, connected it to the ground, but connected to the volt meter.

This week I'm excited to welcome Dr Krista Burns. Krista is a certified postural neurologist, certified posture expert, a doctor of chiropractic, and she has a PhD in global health policy. So, she has a few qualifications. She is also a highly sought-after speaker and author of the textbook, The Posture Principles. Her goal is to inspire audiences worldwide to understand the importance of posture—which, as you may know, is declining rapidly with the speed of technology.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What is Digital Dementia and why should we be aware of it?
  • What are your suggestions for those of us with desk-bound jobs?
  • Can we build in specific movements into our exercise routine with postural decline in mind?

https://180nutrition.com.au/product/

This week, I'm excited to welcome Dr. Krista Burns, who is the co-founder of The American Posture Institute. Dr. Krista has made a life's work to help others learn every detail about posture and how to become posture experts in their communities. She routinely travels the world teaching the importance of posture and how to address the issues arising from our ever expanding digital lifestyles. In this episode, we talk about how to safeguard ourselves against digital dementia and the strategies that we can utilize to combat postural and cognitive decline. Now, there is definitely something for every one of us in this conversation. So without further ado over to Dr. Krista. Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Dr. Krista to the podcast. Dr Krista, how are you?
Krista

01:39 Oh, I'm doing so good. Thank you so much for this opportunity to chat today.

Stu

01:42 No, we're really, really intrigued to pick your brains on your specialist topic. So before we get into that and first step for all of our listeners that may not be familiar with you, I would love it if you could just tell them a little bit about yourself.
Krista: 01:58 Absolutely. My name is Dr. Krista Burns and I'm the co-founder of The American Posture Institute. And at The American Posture Institute we teach healthcare providers how to become the go-to posture experts in their community. Now, how I got my start originally was from an injury. Many of us go through either a health crisis or an injury ourselves that then leads us down the path of health care.

So I originally wanted to be an Olympic skier. That was my first love, my first goal, my first dream and passion and was well on my way. I was Olympic bound, I was competing on US development ski team, suffered an injury in my spine. And from there I just became obsessed with helping people with back pain because that was something that prevented me from achieving my goals and dreams. And I didn't want back pain to hold other people back. So fast forward, graduated from school, created The American Posture Institute with signature postural correction systems to help, not just with back pain, but overall function, structure, and neurology of the body to help us live healthier lives. And then we'll talk more about digital dementia. But what we started noticing is that postural decline is also associated with neurologic defects. So we'll dive deeper into that throughout today's discussion.

03:11 Fantastic. Yeah, interesting story. And so you mentioned digital dementia and I am really, really interested in that at the moment and partly because tech has changed wildly since I was a boy. And now it seems that we're beholden to these mobile devices that are physically changing the way that we're thinking and they're rewiring our brains. But they're also changing our posture too because we get this crazy downward stoop all hours where we're hunched over our desks and perhaps we're not as active as we used to be. So first up, I'd love for you to give me a little bit of rundown of what digital dementia actually is and why you think that we should be aware of it.

Krista

04:01 Absolutely. Well, at The American Posture Institute, we say that posture is declining at the speed of technology. And so just as fast as technology is evolving, we're seeing a de-evolution of human function and structure. So what digital dementia is, is digital dementia is non-Alzheimer's specific, dementia like symptoms in adolescents caused from the overstimulation of technology combined with poor lifestyle habits. Let me break that apart because I just said a big phrase. So it's non- Alzheimer's meaning that it's not due to physical changes in your brain associated with certain proteins or genes, however it's acquired. If we were to look up the word dementia with the Alzheimer's association, what it would tell us is that dementia is not a specific disease, it's a set of symptoms associated with poor focus, short term memory loss with poor visual focus as well, and confusion with daily activities.

And so if you've ever felt confusion, short term memory loss, inability to focus, these are tightening early dementia like symptoms and now it's caused from the overstimulation of technology combined with poor lifestyle habits. So I'd be a hypocrite if I said we just needed to get rid of technology together. We're actually connecting from across the world because of our ability to connect via tech. And we love that. We love the opportunities that technology has provided to us as a human species. However, we need to recognize the limitations associated with it as well. When we're overstimulated from our technology, it's stimulating certain parts of our brain. But when we're sedentary, when we have poor posture and we're overstimulated from technology, we're under stimulating other parts of our brains. We'll pick that part a little bit more. But what this is resulting in is dementia like symptoms of confusion, learning disorders, short term memory loss in children as young as eight, nine, 10 years old. And now they're growing up in a world where it's normal to have technology from the time you're born up through adulthood.

The difference between us, Stu, and children now is that we didn't have technology as a big part of our lives until later on. Until we were adults, right? Whereas infants now are born into a world where they get that digital babysitter. So I think it's really important that we have this discussion now, not to get rid of technology, not to blame technology, but to recognize our ability to pay it forward to the next generation, the importance of having healthy lifestyle habits associated with technology.

This week I'm excited to welcome Dr Sarah Ballantyne. She (a.k.a. The Paleo Mom) is the creator of the award-winning blog  www.ThePaleoMom.com, cohost of the top-rated and syndicated  The Paleo View podcast, and New York Times Bestselling author of four books: the most comprehensive Paleo guidebook to date, Paleo Principles; the definitive Autoimmune Protocol guidebook, The Paleo Approach; and two AIP cookbooks, The Paleo Approach Cookbook and The Healing Kitchen.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • Have the paleo principles changed at all since it’s mainstream introduction?
  • Which conventional foods do you think most negatively impact our health?
  • How does the The Autoimmune Protocol differ from the paleo diet?

https://180nutrition.com.au/

 

This week, I'm excited to welcome Dr. Sarah Ballantyne. Dr. Ballantyne is the creator of the award winning online resource, thepaleomom.Com. She's co-hosted the top-rated the Paleo View podcast and is a New York Times bestselling author of multiple titles. She's a medical biophysicist with a deep interest in understanding how the foods we eat interact with our gut barriers, immune systems and hormones to ultimately influence our health. In this episode, we talk about the common foods that most negatively impact our health, the difference between the paleo diet and the autoimmune protocol and so much more, over to Dr. Ballantyne.

01:26 Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Dr. Sarah Ballantyne to the podcast. Dr Ballantyne, how are you?

Sarah

01:35 I am wonderful. It's my evening and your morning.

Stu

01:38 It is.

Sarah

01:38 So I don't know ... it's already disorienting, but I'm lovely. Thank you so much for having me on the podcast.

Stu

01:43 Well, thank you so much for sharing some of your time. So I'm guessing it's around 8:00 PM on a Friday night, and I said before like, you know, this is your time. So we're going to ... we're not going to take up too much of it. You are super busy, no doubt. So really, really interested to just to tap into some of your knowledge today. But before I do, and for all of our listeners that may not be familiar with you or your work, could you just tell us a little bit about yourself please?

Sarah

02:13 Yeah, so I've come to this space where I sort of consider myself a health educator maybe or a science translator, but where I've come is from this sort of combination of my training. So I have a PhD in medical biophysics, I was a medical researcher and I had to leave that career behind because of my health struggles. So I had over a dozen different diagnosed health conditions, four of them were autoimmune diseases. I was over 300 pounds, morbidly obese and really struggling. In pain all the time, migraines and gastrointestinal symptoms and it really took taking a break from my career. At the time, I told myself I was doing it to focus on my child, but really I was doing it because I couldn't have so many things going on in my life. I couldn't be sick and be a mother and be a university professor, it was too many different things.

03:14 Like it was, it just was not compatible, given that my health was this, you know, extra seasoning in life that colored everything. And giving myself that space, allowed me to start applying my scientific background to the problem of my own health. And that brought me to the paleo diet. I had the stereotypical reaction when I first heard about it. I thought it sounded completely crazy and said something like, "There's no way I'm doing that." Which is, again, a pretty normal reaction. But I found some scientific articles that evaluated aspects of the paleo diet and because I have this medical research background, that was my hook. And it really, like it really lured me in and I became obsessed, I think is a fair term, with reading the science behind the ancestral templates and the paleolithic diet and that the studies that had already been done at the time. And over about three months of sort of dabble level of research, I decided I really needed to try this thing and I decided I would dedicate three months to it.

04:21 Within two weeks, I was able to go off all six prescription medications that I was on at the time. And which is not necessarily the most typical experience, it makes me one of the jerks. But it was so miraculous, like it just, it was eye opening to me to have these health conditions that I had struggled with for some of them 15 years at that point of my life, disappear within two weeks. Like just go away. I mean, and other things, obviously, it's more like a remission, you know, some things were controlled rather than completely reversed, but that's the nature of chronic illness. But that turned me into a zealot and I became even more obsessed with reading everything I could get my hands on and really digging into that science. And I love cooking, so I got really creative in the kitchen and it just became ... it went from a healthy obsession to unhealthy obsession because I needed an outlet and I started finding myself having conversations with complete strangers.

05:29 I would be getting my hair cut and be telling the hairdresser that the bagel that she was eating was going to kill her, which is not appropriate in any circumstance. And so, after about two months, I just, I needed a place to share that enthusiasm that was productive. And so on a Thursday evening, you know, 1st of November, 2011, I turned to my husband and I said, "What do you think of the idea of me starting a blog?" And since he had been receiving the brunt of my enthusiasm for a couple of months, he was like, "Great idea. Go for it. Do it." And so by that Sunday I had researched domain names and figured out that this was what I wanted to write about. And at the time, because I had sort of left my scientific research career on the back burner anyways, I didn't really anticipate that I would be writing so much about the science behind diet and lifestyle. But it turns out that I am such a science nerd through and through, that I can't actually turn that off. And so after I had been blogging for a while, anticipating that I would ... it would be more of a mommy blog and I'd talk about the experience, that's why my website's called The Paleo Mom. I realized that that's not what I'm here for. I'm here to take this amazing science background that I have and this ability that I think is fairly unique among scientists to actually communicate effectively with people without science backgrounds. And take that skill and apply it and start making the science behind this diet accessible. Because I feel like when you see this list of foods to avoid, which is how the paleo diet was typically described way back in 2011. If you don't have a reason behind, why would you cut out all grains or why would you cut out all legumes if you don't really ...

07:27 It seems arbitrary. And I think that even the, the sound bite definitions of paleo, where people say, "Eat the way we were, you know, we evolved to eat." Right? We eat like our paleolithic ancestors, I eat like a cave man, all these like memes of what paleo is. I feel like that actually undermines the message even more, because it simplifies it to the point where it seems arbitrary. And I think, my approach is very much understanding the contemporary biology, biochemistry, physiology. What are the compounds in foods that are vital to health and what are the compounds in foods that undermine it? And what foods have what proportions of those? So how can we rate foods, right? Based on how they nourish our bodies versus potentially undermine our health in some way. And that's what's really interesting to me to take this really contemporary approach to it.

08:23 And I think that when you talk about whether it's paleo or any of the related dietary templates, because I'm not particularly dogmatic on diet, I think that you need to expand it into more of a education around food, rather than the simplification and this list of yeses and nos. Because, first of all, it makes it more accessible, if you can really understand why you would eat this food, and not that food. But I think it also empowers people with knowledge to make more informed choices for them, so it powers people to really understand their own individual tolerance to food, their own bodies. And it also I think, leads into a conversation on troubleshooting that is much more productive.

09:13 I think one of the problems we're seeing right now in sort of health conscious communities as a whole is four 50-ish years, we have defined healthy diets based on what you don't eat. You cut out this, it's low this, right? And there's a whole pile of different versions of diets that are all about what you don't eat. And what makes you healthy is not what you don't eat, it's what you actually put into your body-

It was through the discovery of the positive neurological effects of colouring-in using Dr Rodski's designs which has sparked a worldwide sensation resulting in three of Dr Rodski's colouring-in brain science books being featured by Oprah Winfrey in her 2016 Christmas Wish List. These three books, Modern Medi-tation, Brain Science Colourtation Technique and Anti-stress were a worldwide success.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What approach does Neuroscience offer to address workplace burnout?
  • What everyday practices could unknowingly / negatively impact our state of mind?
  • Where would we start if we want to become more mindful?

This week I'm excited to welcome Dr. Stan Rodski. Dr. Rodski has worked as a psychologist for over 30 years specializing in neuro scientific research around the issues of stress and how best to deal with it in our personal, family, and work lives. In this episode, we talk about how neuroscience can help to address workplace burnout, where to start if you want to become more mindful, and how micro breaks could help revive our tired brains. Over to Dr. Rodski.

00:01:17

Hi guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Dr. Stan Rodski to the podcast. Dr. Rodski, good morning. How are you?

Stan          

00:01:27

I'm very well, thank you, and thanks for having me.

Stu 

00:01:29

Thank you so much for sharing some of your time today. First up, before we get into some of the questions I'd love to ask you this morning, for all of our listeners that may not be familiar with you, I would just love it if you could just tell us a little bit about yourself, please.

Stan

00:01:44

Yeah, sure. Look, my background is psychology, mathematics, and neuroscience. So, in most of my life before the neuroscience caught up, which you can imagine that probably since I qualified back in the early 80s for up until maybe the mid 90s the only way we looked at a brain was with a x-ray, so you could imagine what happened to the world when scanners came in. PET, SPECT, movable machines now, you know, it's the generation of the world into the neuro science. So that meant that probably until about the early 2000s, I worked mainly as a psychologist, cognitive psychologist, some would call a neuropsychologist. And for the last 10 years or so, my concentration has been in this neuroscience space. In particular, the peak performance space.

00:02:52

So when you shift from psychology to neuroscience what's happening is that you're moving into the ends of the spectrum. So we're psychology operates, generally in the middle ground, the neuro stuff comes in because there's major learning disorders and the brain is malfunctioning, or my brain is malfunctioning when I need to perform at my best, I can't remember the names, I can't remember what I'm doing. So, the neuro science and the ability for me to not be so reactive, but rather than proactive, is my background. So, that cognitive neuroscience. As I explained, I'm a plumber and electrician for the brain.

Catharine started ENERGYbits after her sister was diagnosed with breast cancer and advised by her oncologist that an alkaline diet would help her heal. Catharine immediately sprung into action to help her sister research alkaline foods and in the process she discovered algae. When Catharine learned that algae was the most alkaline, plant-based, nutrient-dense food in the world and had been used for fifty years in Asia to improve health and longevity, she knew she had discovered something big (and yes, her sister fully recovered - thanks for asking).

As Catharine dug into the science of algae, she learned it had 64% protein, 40 vitamins/minerals and was endorsed by the United Nations and NASA as the most nutrient dense food in the world. She also discovered there were 100,000 studies documenting its long list of benefits and it was the most sustainable, eco-friendly food crop in the world. And yet algae remained virtually unknown outside of Asia. How could this be possible? Catharine knew algae could be a game changer for our health, our children and our world if she could only convince people it wasn't weird. And so ENERGYbits was born.

It took Catharine eight years to bring algae into the mainstream and build ENERGYbits into a national company. We're glad she finally did, because now you and your family can benefit from our organically grown, toxin-free, Non-GMO algae tablets too. A handful will help satisfy your hunger, help give you steady energy, and help ensure your nutritional needs are met. All this from a food that has one ingredient, no chemicals, caffeine, sugar or processing and is the most sustainable, safe, eco-friendly, crop in the world - algae. Your body and Mother Earth say thank you. And we do too.

Questions asked in the episode:
 
  •  What are alkaline foods and how can they impact our health?
  •  In terms of nutrient density which algaes are offer the best bang-for-buck?
  • What’s the difference between spirulina and chlorella?

This week, I'm excited to welcome Catherine Arnston. When a family health issue sent Catherine researching the benefits of an alkaline diet, she quickly discovered algae and knew she had discovered big. As Catherine dug into the science of algae, she learned it had 64% protein, 40 vitamins and minerals and was endorsed by the United Nations and NASA as the most nutrient dense food in the world. In this episode, we talk about the importance of an alkaline diet and how algae can help us take our health to the next level. Over to Catherine.

Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Catherine Arnston to the podcast. Catherine, how are you?

Catharine

Hello. I am great. I'm hailing all the way from Boston, Massachusetts today to talk to you.

Stu

Wow, okay. Boston, Massachusetts [inaudible 00:01:37] by Australia, so we have connected.

Catharine

 There you go.

Stu

Good to talk to you, super intrigued as to learn a little bit more about your story and your thoughts as well on what we're going to get into shortly. But first up, for everyone out there that may not have heard about you or your work, I would love it if you could just tell our listeners a little bit about yourself please.

Catharine

About me and or how I started the company, or...

Stu

Yeah, just about you and your story.

Catharine

 Sure. Well, I am Canadian, although I've lived in Boston for 20, oh, 33 years, so don't do the math to figure out old I am, please. I'll reveal it later on I guess if I have to. But I had to spend all my time growing up in Canada, did an MBA, was doing international business and I'd started a couple other companies not related to nutrition. I was the publisher of an interior design magazine. And then out of the blue, my younger sister in Canada developed breast cancer. This was 10 years ago. And her oncologist in Canada told her she needed to change her diet to an alkaline diet because it would help her with her healing. So they didn't tell her what it was or why it would help her. So she called me because of course she's my baby sister. Of course I'm going to help. And also just because I'm a really good researcher.

So I said, "Oh, I have no idea what an alkaline diet is, but we will find out." And it turned out to be mostly a plant-based diet and it was because of the chlorophyll and the phytonutrients in the plants that would build her immune system and she was going through chemo, so she needed to keep her immune system strong. So she did change her diet and eliminated acidic foods. And 10 years later she's still cancer free, so I'm very excited about that.

And in the process of helping her, I started reading about plant-based nutrition. Now in America and possibly in Australia as well, plant-based nutrition is pretty much mainstream now. All the research in new foods is pretty much plant-based. But 10 years ago, nobody was talking about it. And as I read the science I thought man, somebody has to get this knowledge out there. So I thought, okay, well why don't I give it a shot?

So I had no nutrition background. So I gave up my career, went back to school, I got a one year certificate from a place called the Institute for Integrative Nutrition so I could get us a health coaching certificate. When I graduated I thought, well now what? So then I taught nutrition for free at corporations and hospitals, just trying to teach people how to incorporate a plant-based nutrition diet to be healthier. And I learned a very important lesson. Pretty much everybody knows that they should eat more greens to be healthier, but they either don't like them, their kids don't like them, their husband doesn't like them, too much work to cut, carry them, cut them. So I thought, okay, if you, if I'm going to help people I have to find something that's got the green nutrition but it has to be fast, easy and maybe not even taste green.

So back to the drawing board, which that basically it was the internet and I just started researching powders and then I stumbled across the algae, which I had found for my sister but hadn't really taken a close look at it. So I started digging deeper into the knowledge and the science behind algae and I was like Alice in Wonderland falling down the rabbit hole because it was incredible.

Algae has been used for 50 years around the world, mostly in Asia where it's a multibillion dollar crop. It's a crop by the way, algae is not a supplement and I need to be sure your community and anyone I talk to understands that it is not a supplement. Supplements are made in labs and manufacturing plants from extracts. Algae is a crop that's grown in water similar to tomatoes, so it's an aquaculture. So anyways, it's almost as big as the beef industry is here in America. That's how big an industry is. And it's been studied. It's the most studied food in the world. There are close to 100,000 studies on the various attributes and benefits of algae, whether it's athletic benefits, a mental benefits and longevity benefits. It just goes on and on and on, but none of the science has made it out of the scientific community.

I was just at an algae conference, which was basically a scientific algae conference and nobody there knows how to communicate their research to consumers. That's one of the reasons why the knowledge of algae has never really taken off here. It's mainstream in Asia because there's algae farms all over the place. People take it in Japan like we take vitamins here. They don't take vitamins in Japan, they only take chlorella. So I decided when I started reading about all these benefits of algae and how it was so misunderstood... aren't we all... that I would devote the rest of my life seriously to helping people understand algae, getting through the science, getting the credibility out there, taking the weirdness out of it by giving it consumer friendly names, packaging it properly, making sure I had the safest, purest algae possible and educating people so they know what to look for. So that's how I became the algae lady.

Stu

My word. My word.

Catharine

 I have to say, after 10 years of spending my time researching algae, which is hilarious because I'm a bit of a glamour girl and I'm the last person you would think would be so intrigued by algae, but I think I'm also a science geek. After 10 years, I'm still discovering amazing nutrients and benefits of algae. It is the gift that just keeps on giving and I can't, I love telling people about it. It's incredible. So there I am. Thanks for asking.

Stu

Well, now what an intro. No, I'm intrigued now. So just to backtrack a little bit then it's, well first up, I guess, thumbs up for the oncologists for saying you need to change your diet.

Catharine

Yes, exactly.

Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Jema Lee to the podcast. Jema, how are you?

Jema

I'm very well Stu. Thank you so much for having me on.

Stu

Honored that you're going to share your knowledge with our audience today as well because I think you're super, super passionate, which is why I'm so particularly interested in having a chat with you today. But first up, I would love it for our audience that may not be familiar with you. If you could just share a little bit about yourself.

Jema

[00:04:00] Thank you. Yeah, I'm a women's health educator. And what that means is I work with women around their periods basically. I've been in the nutrition industry for 13 years and I've been down this road of having my own health challenges and I really kind of along the way didn't want to become a practitioner. I wanted to become a supporter and an educator, because I feel like education is one of the missing kind of components. So I went down this really long road of traveling and studying ancestral health. I've studied a little bit about women wisdom, I've studied nutrition, I've studied wellness coaching, I've studied Ayurveda I've studied Ayurveda psychology, there's lots of different facets.

And I was always so interested in like, how did our ancestors used still live thousands and thousands of years ago that we no longer maybe use their kind of techniques and tools and traditions, that we could like bring into this modern world that we do today. So now that's what I do and I work with women and helping them learn how amazing their bodies are.

00:44 This week, I'm excited to welcome Jordanna Levin. Jordanna is a journalist, author, podcaster, and manifestor, who has a knack for taking mind-exploding, spiritual concepts and making them digestible, relatable and applicable to everyone.

00:59 In this episode, we talk about her new book called Make It Happen, which explains how we can use the practice of manifestation to achieve the life of our dreams. Over to Jordanna.

01:09 Hey, guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I am delighted to welcome Jordanna Levin to the podcast. Jordanna, how are you?

Jordanna

01:20 I'm well, Stuart. Thank you for having me.

Stu

01:24 Well, thank you so much. We're neighbors, as well, so we'll talk about that-

Jordanna

01:26 I know.

Stu

01:29 A little bit later, but, first up, for everybody out there that may not be familiar with you, I just wondered if you could just tell us a little bit about yourself, please.

Jordanna

01:38 It's always hard when I get this question because I don't really know where to start, but I'll start from the very beginning. I'm a journalist. My training is journalism. I spent the first half of my career working in magazines and specifically in food publishing, which I don't really know how I ended up there. It was one of those chance encounters, and it started to steer the direction of my life from there. I worked in food publishing for almost 10 years, working in magazines and cookbooks, and got myself up to the top ranks, dream job, and thought, "Oh, this is not as dreamy as I had envisioned it," so I left publishing, and I started working for myself in lots of different facets, and it went through lots of reinventions.

02:28 I went from a health coach. I did a lot of recipe development, writing recipes for cookbooks, that moved into the celebrity cookbook world where I'd write recipes, ghostwrite recipes for celebrities, and then I exhausted that side of my life, and I pivoted once more, and I stepped away from that a little bit and started doing my yoga teacher training, getting into the more spiritual side of things, which had always been the way I was raised by my parents, but really exploring it in terms of my work and the service that I do in the world. As that started to grow, I started running these events in Sydney called Lunar Nights, which became these sellout monthly events that we ran every new moon, and they were very much centered around intention setting and manifestation, and they ran for about three years, and I think the reason that they did so well was because I had a very practical and relatable approach, and it was something that was missing from many of the spiritual teachings and the spiritual events that were happening in and around Sydney.

03:47 Once I saw the attraction of something like that, I thought, "Well, hang on. I've got this skillset of 10 years in the media. What can I do with this? How can I combine the two?" I put together a book proposal, and I sent it off last year, and that all started to come into fruition. I wrote the book in eight weeks-

This week we welcome Andrew Taylor to the show. At the beginning of 2016, in the depths of mental and physical despair, Andrew had a simple idea to treat food addiction by quitting food, in much the same way an alcoholic should quit alcohol. He ended up quitting all foods except potatoes, in a simple experiment to see what would happen. Pretty soon Andrew's story went viral around the globe as people were captivated by his incredible weight loss and physical and mental health improvements.

So many thousands of people asked Andrew for help over the course of the year that the best way to help as many people as possible was to collate all the advice he had given in the form of a book. Thus he found that completely unintentionally he'd become a published author.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • How do you define food addiction and what are the tell-tale signs?
  • Can certain foods or supplements aid to suppress the addictive habits?
  • What 3 tips could you offer those wanting to make change?

https://180nutrition.com.au/

This week I'm excited to welcome Andrew Tyler to the show, who is the founder of Spud Fit. Andrew was a former junior Australian champion marathon kayaker, struggling with a lifetime of food addiction and dieting that left him weighing in at over 150 kilos. His story went viral when the world caught wind of the then 36 year old Aussie dad, who had embarked upon a quest to eat only potatoes for an entire year. The results of this experiment were nothing short of remarkable, and today Andrew coaches thousands of people through their food addiction issues and focuses on addressing the root causes of overeating. Over to Andrew.

Hey guys, this is Stu from one 80 nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Andrew Tyler to the podcast. Andrew, how are you?

Andrew

01:33 Very well, and I'm honored to be a guest, so thank you for having me.

Stu

01:37 Thank you for agreeing to come on. So really, really keen to get into your story and also the discoveries that you learned along your journey. But before we jump into any of that stuff, if you could just tell us a little bit about yourself for our listeners that may not be familiar with you.

Andrew

01:54 Well, my name is Andrew. I'm Spud Fit, basically. That's my online alter-ego, Spud Fit, that's my website, it came about because, I guess most people listening would know me from, well, maybe they don't know me at all, that's probably more likely. But the people that do know me, would know me from a couple of years ago. I got my little 15 minutes of zed grade fame for eating only potatoes for an entire year. Yeah, that was something that I thought at the time was the most boring thing a person could possibly ever do, and in hindsight, it made sense that people were interested in it, but it was a surprise. So yeah, I got a little bit of a viral fame, in inverted commas, from that.

Annabelle

02:21 Yes. Well we, we met about 10 years ago outside the school where we had two daughters and we started talking and we discovered fairly early on that we both had very similar backgrounds in terms of the families that we came from and the, the diseases that we believed were in our genes. And a, and we sort of cemented our early friendship over conversations about subjects like dementia and Alzheimer's and all those sorts of things. And then later on we decided to start blogging. We were both working, we had young children, we were very, very busy and we were finding it quite hard to adopt sort of healthy lifestyle practices into our own lives because we were, we're juggling so many, so many balls.

This week we welcome Dr Stephen Hussey to the show. He is a health coach who helps people achieve high levels of health. He specializes in heart health and autoimmune issues.
 
Questions asked in the episode
 
  • How did you previously manage your diabetes compared to what you do now?
  • Do you think we should all follow a low-carb/keto-based lifestyle?
  • How do you exercise to support your evolutionary beliefs?

 https://180nutrition.com.au/

00:44 This week, I'm excited to welcome Dr. Stephen Hussey. Dr. Hussey is a chiropractor, functional medicine practitioner, and online health coach. He is the author of a new book called, 'The Health Evolution: Why Understanding Evolution is the Key to Vibrant Health'. In this episode, we discuss how Dr. Hussey manages his Type I diabetes, using a ketogenic approach to eating. And also, talk about how an understanding of our evolution could guide us to optimizing our health today. Over to Dr. Hussey.

01:17 Hey guys. This is Stu from 180 Nutrition. And I am delighted to welcome Dr. Stephen Hussey to the podcast today. Dr. Hussey, how are you?

Stephen

01:25 Pretty good. How are you?

Stu

01:26 Very well, thank you. Very well. So thank you for sharing some of your time. I know we've got, you've got lots of knowledge that I am sure that you'll be happy to share, and with us this morning, that we can then pass on to our audience. But first up, for all of those listeners today that may not be familiar with you or your work, I'd love it if you could just tell us a little bit about yourself, please.

Stephen

01:49 Yeah. So, I am a chiropractor. And I also have a Masters in Functional Medicine and Human Nutrition. And I practice chiropractic here in Roanoke, Virginia. But I also do online health coaching through my website, resourceyourhealth.com. And there, I focus on helping people achieve high levels of heart health, as well as autoimmune type conditions. And I focus on those because of my personal story. So I was a very sick child. I had lots of inflammatory conditions. And we relied on, my parents and I relied on Western medicine to help me with those. And didn't really get the results I was looking for.

02:34 So, as I grew up, and as I got a medical education, and started learning and seeking out everything, I found that Western medicine was pretty ineffective at helping me deal with these things. And I found out how to get rid of most all of them. Aside from the collateral damage, it is Type I diabetes. And I got rid of everything that I was suffering with as a child. All of the inflammatory conditions. You know, IBS, inflammatory hives all over my body, allergies, all that kind of stuff.

03:07 And so, even through my medical training, i found that it was still not giving me the answers. And so, I've always been a student, and always looking for the answers in any place I could find them. Stumbled upon evolution, and just everything that has to do with humans. Anthropology, health, everything. I just kind of [inaudible 00:03:32] it all. And put it all together. And found the answers for me. And have kind of healed myself, and now helping other people to do that, as well.

This week, I'm excited to welcome Brian Richards. In 2008 SaunaSpace founder Brian needed to make a decision: fill prescriptions for acne, insomnia, and adrenal fatigue, or take a chance with Near Infrared ( NIr) Sauna Therapy, as recommended by an alternative medicine doctor. For Brian, it was a no brainer. But there was a problem, at the time you couldn’t find an NIr sauna. So, he began his journey to change that.

Over the following years, Brian became consumed with creating the perfect product, fueled by the healing transformation of his personal experience with NIr Sauna Therapy. At the beginning, SaunaSpace was one big DIY project, where Brian did everything from designing his logo and website to building every sauna himself.

With so much to do, Brian brought in his trusted friends Rusty as Lead Design and Tony for Chief Ops to accelerate SaunaSpace Product & Production Development. Today, Brian heads our ten-person team that operates 3,500 square feet of workshop space spread over two locations.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What are the main benefits of infrared saunas?
  • Is EMF a concern with infrared sauna use?
  • What are your thoughts on mixing infrared saunas with cold therapy?

https://180nutrition.com.au/shop/

This week, I'm excited to welcome Brian Richards. Brian is the founder and lead product developer of SaunaSpace, an innovative company doing remarkable things with near infrared saunas in order to help others discover the pathway to natural healing. In this episode, we discuss how Brian fully healed his toxin related acne, brain fog, adrenal fatigue, and more with the power of incandescent sauna therapy, full spectrum near infrared light and heat therapy. We dig into the science behind Near Infrared Saunas and discover how we can use this technology to optimize our own health. Over to Brian.

Hi, guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I'm delighted to welcome Brian Richards to the podcast. Brian, how are you, man?

Brian

00:01:30 I'm good. Thank you. How are you doing?

Stu

00:01:33 Yeah, very well. Thank you. Thanks so much for your time. Before we get into the questions, I'd love it if you could just share a little bit about yourself for our audience that may not know or have heard about your work, please.

Brian

00:01:46 Yeah, of course. So, I'm the founder of SaunaSpace. We manufacture incandescent infrared saunas is a very special type of sauna, it's a very special type of infrared called Near Infrared. But my story is, I think, similar to many people nowadays. Six years ago, over six years ago now, I had what I eventually understood to be adrenal fatigue problems. I had mind racing, insomnia, I had this weird acne that was only in my torso. I was also kind of negative and irascible and low energy kind of lethargic. This was at the end of my college career while I'm still young but at this point I felt like there was something intractably wrong with me.

I went to the dermatologist and they prescribe Accutane, which it turns out is a horrible thing. And all the other pharmacological approaches as well. So I said, "No, there's got to be something else." I got on the internet, like everybody does nowadays and I searched for an answer, for my own answer. And I kept encountering sauna and detoxification and this idea that environmental toxins are a core contributing factor to disease and these other things, all these problems. So, sort of at the end of that I stumbled upon this really unique type of sauna. It's called it it's called the Incandescent Sauna, what SaunaSpace does. It was actually invented and pioneered by Dr. John Harvey Kellogg in 1891. So, for those of you are not familiar, Kellogg's cornflakes, this is an interesting aside.

At that time, in the early 20th century, out of control male libido was thought to be a problem. So they thought, oh, well, we'll feed the all the adult males this bland food that we call cornflakes now and it'll lower male libido. So fast forward today, and they have achieved their goal. So, funnily enough though, this guy had really, he was very avant-garde. He was doing some very unique approaches, alternative healing approaches in the early 20th century. One of them was this. He said, "Hey," three years after the labels were invented, "Let's use them for sauna heaters and we'll heat the body and we'll heal people."  And so you can see in 1910, he wrote a book called photo therapeutics. So here we have light therapy been understood over 100 years ago, and it was not just him, but he pioneer this, he called the electric incandescent bath, you can actually see photos of these big victorian looking cabinets from that era there. They're insane. And so there's there's a modern book called Sauna Therapy for Detoxification and Healing by Dr. Lawrence Wilson, to whom I'm eternally grateful for re-popularizing the concept. And so I said, "Hey, I'm a tinkerer. I'm a builder, I'll build my own." I built my own. I did a session right before bed, and then another one right before bed the next day and it was like, boom, my insomnia was completely gone. I slept like a log and I woke up in the morning and I felt truly rested. Instead of, normally, I would sit in bed and just stare and my mind would be racing. So I thought that intrigued me. That was the initial thing that intrigued me so quickly, how could this be? Subsequently, I used it for six months with discipline, 45 minutes a day. And this is before I understood any of the science and any of the things that we'll talk about.

But essentially, it was out of self interest. I had health problem, I wanted to fix it. I stumbled on this and I had an amazing recovery. So, six months later, I realized, " Oh, that's what adrenal fatigue is." I was qualitatively better. I was less irascible, I had more patience, more energy, a qualitatively better mood, just more of a go getter like more ready to just concentrate and complete tasks and complete things, and how do you measure this? For me, it was priceless. The change. And yet, if you met the old me six months prior, you'd say, "Well, what's wrong with you? You look fine." And so I kind of figured it out on my own. It started slowly but I built a few for this, and that and my friends and family and it slowly became SaunaSpace.

I got my own business loan, that was six years ago, and I started with a very bricolage kind of garage project to now, it's a completely custom made, custom designed to make a commercial properly designed, safely designed product that anyone can use at home. And it's been a long journey from there to here but I now have like 24 employees. You can see behind me, this is our new shop, we just moved into. It's huge. [crosstalk 00:06:47]

Stu

00:06:46 Yeah. It's so [inaudible 00:06:48] there in the background for sure. Wow.

This week I'm excited to welcome Dr Christopher Shade. Quicksilver Scientific Founder & CEO, Dr. Christopher Shade obtained his PhD in environmental metals chemistry from the University of Illinois. During his PhD work, Dr. Shade patented analytical technology for mercury speciation analysis and later founded Quicksilver Scientific, Inc. to commercialize this technology. Shortly after starting Quicksilver Scientific, Dr. Shade turned his focus to the human aspects of mercury toxicity and the functioning of the human detoxification system. He has since researched and developed superior liposomal delivery systems for the nutraceutical and wellness markets; and his clinical analytical techniques for measuring human mercury exposure are unique and more comprehensive than anything in the industry.

Thanks to Dr. Shade’s deep understanding of mercury and glutathione chemistry, he was able to design this breakthrough system of products for detoxification that support and maximize the natural detoxification system. Formulated to target specific detoxification pathways, Dr. Shade’s bundles and protocols combine his knowledge for maximum effect. These bundles create a powerful entourage effect that helps the body maintain homeostasis and metabolic balance for optimal health.

 

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What’s the gold standard when testing for heavy metals?
  • What are the most common symptoms of heavy metal toxicity?
  • How safe is the removal of dental amalgams?

https://180nutrition.com.au/shop/

Stu

This week, I'm excited to welcome Dr. Christopher Shade. Dr. Shade is the CO and co-founder of Quicksilver Scientific and is a globally recognized expert in the field of heavy metals and detoxification. In this episode, we discuss the signs and symptoms of heavy metal toxicity, together with the strategies that we can call upon to start detoxification. Over to Dr. Shade.

Hey guys, this is Stu from 118 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Dr. Christopher Shade to the podcast. Dr. Shade, how are you?

Christopher

Doing very good, thank you Stuart.

Stu

Really interested in the topic today which, essentially, is going to be talking about detoxification, heavy metal accumulation, things along those lines. First up, for our listeners that may not be familiar with you, yourself or your work, I'd love it if you could just share a little bit about yourself, please.

Christopher

Oh sure. I'm a PhD originally in Environmental Chemistry and Bio-chemistry, focused a lot around or almost exclusively on metals in the environment, specifically mercury. I run a company called Quicksilver Scientific, you can find us at Quicksilverscientific.com, it's a Quicksilver YouTube channel, and we make these high tech dietary supplements, we set the future of dietary supplements. We do these sublingual deliveries of different nutraceuticals and our original focus was on detoxification of metals, and then detoxifications of all environmental toxins. We applied these delivery systems to be able to get a maximum effect out of nutraceuticals that people usually associated with detoxification but when you really get the right delivery and you line everything up together you can get extraordinarily powerful programs going.

That's what we've really built on and we've grown into, we just did a keto product, we're doing hormone products all around this delivery system. Here, we're talking about metals and mercury detoxification and that's been my core for 20 years now.

This week, I'm excited to welcome Dr. Glenn Livingston.He is the son of two therapists in a family of 20 psychologists, social workers, counselors, and therapists.  Shortly after getting his Ph.D. (from Yeshiva University at the Einstein Medical Campus in New York City) Glenn built a 65 person practice in approximately eighteen months, and has now worked with well over 1,000 clients.

When people's symptoms resolved, he invited them into his coaching practice until, five years later, he was working almost entirely as a coach, and also directly supervising other coaches and therapists.  But because he doesn't have children, thoroughly enjoys his work, and has never had to commute, Dr. Livingston launched a second career as a consultant, helping large companies like Whirlpool, Novartis, Bausch & Lomb, and Panasonic, evaluate psychological response to advertising.

His previous companies eventually sold more than $30,000,000, and along the way obtained publicity in major media like The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Sun Times, the NY Daily News, Crain's NY Business, The Milwaukee Business Journal, The Indiana Star Ledger, American Demographics, CBS & ABC Radio, Bloomberg Radio, WGN & UPN TV, and many, many more.

Later accomplishments include co-founding and developing a 21 person online marketing agency, and developing his own profitable publishing business.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  •  What makes us binge when we know that we shouldn’t?
  •  Which foods/drinks are the most difficult to limit?
  •  Where would we start if we want to address binge eating?

https://180nutrition.com.au/shop/

This week, I'm excited to welcome Dr. Glenn Livingston. Dr. Glenn Livingston is a veteran psychologist and was the longtime CEO of a multimillion dollar consulting firm. He spent several decades researching the nature of binging and overeating with his own patients, which included a self funded research program with more than 40,000 participants. In this episode, we discuss exactly why we are susceptible to binge eating and talk about the strategies, tools, and techniques that we can call upon to address it. Over to Dr. Livingston.

01:18 Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Dr. Glenn Livingston to the podcast. Dr. Livingston, how are you?

Glen

01:26 I'm fine. I'll be better if you call me Glenn.

Stu

01:28 Glen. Okay, well, there you go. We're friends already. Thank you, Glenn. So first up, Glen, for all of our listeners that may not be familiar with you, I'd love it if you could just tell us a little bit about who you are and perhaps what you do as well.

Glen

01:44 Well, I'm best known these days for being the author of Never Binge Again, which is often the number one book for weight loss on the Amazon kindle. It's been that way for about three years. We've got 700,000 readers just about and Yada, Yada, Yada. That's what I'm best known for. I don't hardly know who I am, but I'm a guy who spent a lifetime struggling with food until I came up with a weird way to fix it for myself. I was also the CEO of two companies that sold combined about $30 million of research to big companies in the fortune 500, fortune 100. Many of them in the food industry. I'm a clinical psychologist. I ran a child and family practice for a long time. Now as you'll see, I go around talking about a strange way to overcome binge eating.

This week, I'm excited to welcome Caspar Szulc. Caspar was born in Manhattan, New York, and from an early age, he was exposed to a lifestyle of healthy diet, exercise, and a holistic and spiritual mentality by his father, a pioneer in integrative medicine, and mother, a psychologist. Caspar attended Boston University’s School of Management where he received degrees in Marketing and Finance. He then worked as a financial analyst before starting the venture now known as Innovative Medicine at the age of 22.

As President and Co-Founder of Innovative Medicine, Caspar brings a passion and vision that has played a vital role in the growth of the company and world-renowned medical center and breaking into new markets around the globe. His “quality first” approach has helped to set the tone of a company that not only bridges that gap of science and nature but of design and medicine – relentlessly trying to achieve a balance of the two that benefits both practitioner and patient.

An avid traveler and explorer, he has visited 6 continents, 57 countries, and all 50 states in the U.S. His search for new therapies, modalities and how other cultures heal continues to take him to new places around the planet. He has applied the knowledge gained from traveling and his unique upbringing to help others achieve a healthier, happier existence.

He enjoys mountain climbing (climbed three of the 7 Summits), tennis (attended all 4 Grand Slams), meditation, exotic foods (has eaten giraffe, zebra, tarantula, and rotten shark among other novel foods), and being a Big Brother to a wonderful Little. Caspar now resides in Battery Park City, NYC.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What are the fundamental problems with conventional medicine?
  • What can we do to safeguard our brains from decline?
  • What can we expect in the future with integrative medicine?

This week I'm excited to welcome Caspar Szulc. Casper is the co-founder of Innovative Medicine, a company leading the way with a unique cutting edge and highly effective approach to medicine and health. In this episode, we discuss the fundamental problems with conventional medicine, and explore how a personalize interpretive approach can help push the boundaries of what's possible in healthcare today. Over to Caspar.

Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I'm delighted to welcome Caspar Szulc to the podcast today. Caspar, how are you?

Caspar

01:19 I'm doing well Stu. Thanks for having me.

Stu

01:21 No, I really appreciate it. And I've got a whole heap of questions that I'm very keen and eager to get stuck into, but before we do, for all of our listeners that may not be familiar with you or your work, I'd just love it if you could tell us a little bit about yourself please?

Caspar

01:37 Sure thing. So I am the co-founder of Innovative Medicine. We're an organization that has been really transforming medicine and how we look at healing for the last 15 years or so. We have a clinical center in New York that sees patients from around the world, and we really are one of the few places that is truly advocating for a personalize and integrative form of medicine that gets at the root causes, and really restores health on all sides, mind, body, spirit. So it's East meets West, meets everything in between.

And we're really trying to help patients at that field, they don't have too many options out there to go about it. And in a unique way that gets to those underlying dysfunctions, addresses them with a truly comprehensive approach and gets them back on track for prolonged health. How we should live in our natural state is healthy. And that's what we're aiming to do.

This week I'm excited to welcome Dr Valdeane Browne. Dr. Brown had a long and varied history in the field of mental health before even pursuing his Ph.D. in Psychology. For over 25 years he taught Continuing Medical Education courses across a wide range of clinical topics including Rapid Transformation of Borderline Phenomenology, Dual Diagnosed Clients, Dynamics of Family Therapy, Working With Angry Adolescents. For many years he was a featured and keynote speaker at numerous national and international conferences in the fields of neurofeedback, child psychology, Total Quality Management, and others. He developed and published the Five Phase Model of Neurofeedback which was the first and still the only, approach to clinical neurofeedback that integrated multiple protocols into a single comprehensive approach that could be used regardless of clinical presentation. With his background in mathematics, physics, computer programming, designing and implementing automated outcome studies as well as multimodal assessment, he was able to co-develop, with his wife Dr. Sue Brown, the Period Three Approach to neurofeedback. Their Approach was fundamental to their new and revolutionary neurofeedback system (later to become NeurOptimal®), showcasing their vision of Dynamical Neurofeedback™. Over time this was refined, always with an overarching commitment to safe, effective and effortless personal transformation that anyone can use. Now retired from actively programming, Dr. Brown directs the ongoing architectural development of NeurOptimal® as well as being intimately involved in ongoing Research and Development at Zengar.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What are the main principles of neural feedback?
  • What would a typical brain training session look like?
  • How safe is the practice of brain training?

Hi Guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I am delighted to welcome Dr. Valdeane Brown, PhD to the podcast. Dr. Brown, how are you?

Dr. Valdeane

01:30 I'm good. How about you Stuart?

Stu

01:31 Yeah, very well thank you. Again, thank you so much for sharing some of your time today. I'm very, very intrigued and keen to dive into some of the questions, but before we do that, I just wondered if you could tell our audience who may not be familiar with you, a little bit about who you are and what you do?

Dr. Valdeane

01:50 Yes. I'm licensed as a psychologist on inactive status in the US, and my wife is too, Dr. Sue Brown. She and I are the co developers of NeurOptimal brain training system, and we're the co founders of Zengar Institute Incorporated. It's the easiest to use, safest, and overall most interesting brain training system. Let's put it that way. Certainly the most advanced, in my opinion, and it really is about giving brain directly information about what it just did, so the brain itself sorts out what is best for it at that moment. It's not driving it any place in particular.

02:41 About 20 years ago, Sue and I decided that we really needed to create our own neuro feedback program. I was teaching at that time, neuro feedback, across a wide range of systems. Various conferences and things of that nature, and I just had had a very different vision for what neuro feedback could be. I actually had that vision all the way back in 1970, and that's kind of been my life's work. Most of that time waiting for technology to catch up to the place where it could implement what I had envisioned. So I'm definitely the visionary, shall we say?

Questions asked in the episode
- What early warning signs may we experience if pre-diabetic?
- Which foods are the worst offenders where blood sugar is concerned?
- Does medication offer a good solution in managing the condition?
 
Stu

This week I'm excited to welcome Dr. Nicki Steinberger. Dr. Steinberger is a holistic health educator, writer, speaker and coach. She teaches people how to prevent and reverse type 2 diabetes using intricitive holistic lifestyle medicine. In this episode, we discuss the early warning signs, common myths and strategies that we can adopt to change the path of the epidemic that is type 2 diabetes. Over to Dr. Steinberger.

01:16 Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I am delighted to welcome Dr. Nicki Steinberger to the podcast. Dr. Nicki, how are you?

Nicki

01:25 How Stuart. I am feeling good. Thank you so much for having me here. It's an honor.

Stu

01:28 Oh I really appreciate being able to tap into your wisdom today. So before we do so, I was just wondering if you could tell our listeners a little bit about yourself please.

Nicki

01:41 Sure. So, let's see, if I go back to childhood for a moment, I would just say that I was an introverted, quiet child who sort of sought out the truth of things and was an observer.

Stu

01:58 Yes.

Nicki 

01:58 And I've been a writer my whole life. I was a song writer and played guitar an sang and did poetry and that sort of thing. I left high school early and went and followed the Grateful Dead for a couple of years, so I've always been sort of a non-conformist.

Stu

02:16 Yeah.

Nicki

02:17 And then I found my way back to psychology school somehow. I was actually sitting in my therapist's office and going, "You know, I could do that. I could be sitting in the other chair. I think I can do that." So, I ended up in a school for spiritual psychology, which was pretty life changing. And from there I transferred to do a doctorate in clinical psychology, feeling burnt out on kind of therapy and didn't want to go down that road. So I thought, "Well, I can write and I can teach and do research."

02:54 And then about almost ten years ago, I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, so I took that next year to see what I could do on my own. What kind of program I could put together. I'd been studying nutrition and holistic health for decades and a year later when I was tested again and I had reverse type 2 and other conditions, it was my sort of "aha" moment, where I then transitioned into holistic health education and started doing community workshops in the San Francisco Bay area, working with clients and then started thinking about writing this book which I did over the last few years. And that's me in a nutshell.

Stu

03:40 Fantastic. Oh I love the story. And I think the area of that story that people are really going to resonate with right now, want to know more, is the reversal of type 2 diabetes, which I think will probably form a lot of the conversation that we have today. And before we get into the techniques and strategies that you used to reverse your type 2 diabetes, why do you think it's becoming so popular? It just seems now like it's a term now that is used so commonly. Because so many people seem to becoming diabetic, which is kind of crazy. What are your thoughts?

Nicki

This week, I'm excited to welcome Justine Switalla.  She is passionate and is on a mission to impact and empower women around the globe. Having landed in Melbourne in 2005, Justine hit the ground running within the fitness industry and she hasn’t looked back.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  •  How important is it to work on our mindset if we want to crush our goals?
  • What strategies to do use to help with positive mindset?
  • How important do you think it is to create time for ourselves?

This week I'm excited to welcome Justine Switalla. Justine is a woman's health, fitness and wellness coach who's on a mission to impact and empower females around the globe. She believes that with the right support, attitude and tools anyone can overcome their personal road blocks and, ultimately, achieve their goals. In this episode we discuss the mindset, nutritional and physical strategies that have consistently produced results for her clients. Over to Justine.

01:14 Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Justine Switalla to the podcast. Justine, how are you?

Justine

01:21 I'm good thank you, how are you?

Stu

01:24 Very well thank you, very well. We haven't had a good chat in a long time, so really, really keen to dig in to a little bit more about what you do and how you help people. And specifically in health and fitness and mindset and motivation today. But before I delve into all of the questions that I've got in my mind right now, I'd just love it if you could tell our listeners a little bit about who you are.

Justine

01:50 Sure. I mean I guess I'll just start with my fitness journey. I started about 15 years ago. I used to be a dental nurse and I didn't like the nine to five grind, didn't really enjoy the job and decided to find my passion which was in the fitness industry, so I began in a gym selling memberships, so I really didn't have any sort of direction as to where I wanted to go with it, but I just knew I wanted to be working in a gym. So I literally started at the bottom. And then from there I became a personal trainer, a group fitness instructor. I got into all the Les Mills classes and teaching Body Attack and RPM and then I did my first sort of fitness modeling show back in 2007 I think, like forever ago. And did that for a couple of years which sort of grew my name in a different sort of field in the industry and got me in with Oxygen Magazine. And yeah, so it sort of just snowballed from there and I loved what I did and I always sort of went out to do things I guess, and do things well.

02:49 I'm a bit of a perfectionist for myself, I like to set goals and achieve them and I felt like I really found my purpose. So I guess, throughout the years it sort of evolved onto the online sort of scene, so now I'm an online coach, I don't do any personal training in the gym as such anymore because I had a little boy five years ago, so once I got pregnant I was like, well I need to come up with a way to be able to stay at home with him and then still create an income. So I created Fit Healthy Mums and then my Mind Body Overhaul program, which is sort of the crux of what I do now. And my passion now really is, sort of throughout the years I guess I've learned a lot the hard way, I've done everything wrong, learned from my mistakes and now I'm really passionate about sort of steering women in the right direction, focusing on mindset, healthy relationships with food, with themselves, training, putting it all under the same umbrella, not focusing so much on aesthetics, but more so what's going on for women internally.

03:45 And the more I've worked with these women essentially over the last five years, the more I've realized how important it is that this sort of work is done for women because I think there's so much emphasis on the exterior, on the training and these days women just live such high-stressed lives, they're doing the work to sort of get ahead. So that's just become my absolute passion and emotional and mental transformations are just as exciting to me as physical ones. Yeah.

James

01:51 Yeah, well I’m an Australian American. I live in Venice Beach, California, and I was always a social drinker I guess you could say. I grew up in the Australian culture, having a couple beers each night and wine in the afternoon. Also, we’d have a bit of wine on the weekends. And then I quit drinking in 2010 just for lifestyle reasons, and my life’s been pretty fantastic since then. And I now help entrepreneurs, health conscious people either quit drinking for 30 days or 90 days, or just quit drinking forever. And then I also became somewhat of a sleep expert in that I help people sleep better. I have a sleep company called Swanwick Sleep, and I guess you could say I’m a health-preneur in as much as that I like to create businesses out of my health habits.

Collins’ background and expert knowledge brings a much-needed perspective to today’s areas of simple living, health, nutrition, entrepreneurship, self-help and being more self-reliant. He holds an AS degree in Exercise Science, BS in Criminal Justice, and MS in Forensic Science.

Gary was raised in the High Desert at the basin of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in a rural part of California. He now lives off-the-grid part of the year in a remote area of NE Washington State, and the other part of year exploring in his travel trailer with his trusty black lab Barney.

He enjoyed, and considers himself lucky to have grown up in a very small town experiencing fishing, hunting, and anything outdoors from a very young age. He has been involved in organized sports, nutrition, and fitness for almost four decades. He is also an active follower and teacher of what he calls “life simplification.” He often says:

“Today we’re bombarded by too much stress, not enough time for personal fulfillment, and failing to take care of our health… there has to be a better way!”

In addition to being a best selling author, he has taught at the University College level, consulted and trained college level athletes, and been interviewed for his expertise on various subjects by CBS Sports, Coast to Coast AM, The RT Network, and FOX News to name a few.

His website www.thesimplelifenow.com, and The Simple Life book series (his total lifestyle reboot), blows the lid off of conventional life and wellness expectations, and is considered essential for every person seeking a simpler, and happier life.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  •  What advice would you offer to those of us stuck in a rut?
  • You’ve likened free-diving to meditation, has it helped you become a more mindful person?
  •  How do you mentally prepare for diving with dangerous sharks?

This week, I'm excited to welcome Alexx Stuart. Alexx is an educator, activist and change agent who runs online courses and host a podcast for those wanting to reduce their toxic load in everyday life, Alexx calls this low tox living. In this episode we discuss the principles of following a low tox lifestyle and focus on the areas that could be unknowingly impacting our health. Over to Alexx.

01:12 Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Alexx Stuart back onto the podcast. Alexx, how are you?

Alexx

01:20 I am so great. Thanks, Stu. It's so great to be here with you. Sorry for the mood lighting I've got happening on my side. I've retreated to my parents. There's construction everywhere around our place at the moment. So, I figured quiet and moody was better than noisy and bright, right?

Stu

01:38 It looks super comfortable behind you.

01:40 It is. Yeah.

01:42 Excellent. So before we get into the questions today, for any of our listeners that might not be familiar with your work, could you just tell us a little bit about yourself please?

Alexx

01:51 Yeah, for sure. So I'm an author of a book that came out last year, The Tox Life. But the story goes way, way, way back into the past. And the whole reason I ended up in health education, even though I had a successful career in hospitality and prior to that in cosmetics in the beauty industry, was through a series of events that I like to call waves of realization, if you like. The first one being a retrospective realization that when I left cosmetics I also left the world of migraines and I was like, "Oh." I didn't really know to dig as to what was in the industry that might be causing those migraines. But I literally stopped getting migraines once I left the beauty industry. So I knew there was something there.

02:40 Then I had this recurrent tonsillitis situation, and so many people will hear this and go, "Yeah, I've been on that merry-go-round" where you go to the doctor because you feel unwell, get the drugs, you take the drugs, you feel better, you feel better for a couple of months, then you feel crap. Then you go to the doctor, then you get drugs and with antibiotics, as some people may or may not know, antibiotic resistance starts to creep in. So you get put on stronger and stronger and stronger ones and of course you're killing more and more and more good gut bugs at the same time.

03:11 And I found myself in a situation where antibiotics didn't work and this was really my wake up call to stop doing the same thing over and over again and expect a different result. It just wasn't making me better. And I was a thriving 28-year-old in every other area of my life. And I was like, "I can't go on like this. This is ridiculous." And so a friend said, 'I know it might be a bit crazy, but why don't you go see a naturopath?" Which, 15 years ago was a bit of a cuckoo thing to do. even though now, thank gosh, there's one on every street corner helping us build stronger bodies. But back then it was a bit weird and I went and she put me on some revolting tasting herbs that have since come to love the taste of, and a really simple and strict three day, if you have to eat something, just have some really well cooked brown rice, chicken stock and carrots and that's it. I just don't want you doing anything too complicated for your system.

04:05 And I got better in three days. I sweated it all out and it was really quite astounding to me that some herbs from plants could actually ship tonsillitis. She suggested I quit gluten containing foods as a longer term strategy to stop it from reoccurring because she had read in the research that was starting to come out that there was a strong link between [inaudible 00:04:32] bugs and a gluten, in terms of gluten feeding them and then causing proliferation, et cetera.

04:42 So I was desperate. I gave it a go even though as a half Frenchie that was probably the worst news I could have ever received. [foreign language 00:04:49] all the good things. But it worked. And the really interesting thing in that time was it got me looking at food labels for the first time in my life. I actually had to look at the ingredients because a few months off gluten and then you'd accidentally have it in a restaurant or something. I really noticed a huge issue with it, but it's kind of like the cows getting grain fed from the late '60s and onward and then realizing you got to give them a tiny bit and then a tiny bit more and then a tiny ... You never realize you're not meant to feel average.

05:28 And so I had started to feel great and then boom. And so I really knew these things were hurting me and I had gluten in every meal. They would have been in my pre 28-year-old self. every single meal, there would have been some form of gluten. And so it was really interesting to see how it was in products that were causing, as they were called health products, breakfast shakes and those sorts of high protein this and low fat that.

05:54 It really started me questioning food companies and questioning our whole system that allows us to trust that they're doing the right thing by us. And they're really, really not, and our government just lets it happen and this is happening all over the world. So, I had been a bit of an activist in my teen years, joined Greenpeace first day of uni. I was that chick. I kind of put it all to bed, you get the good career, the boyfriend, you start on your little societal checklist. I was raised quite conservatively.
Alexx: 06:29 And so, I forgot myself really. And this really woke that up. I was like, "How is this allowed?" I got really riled up by it. And then cut to a few years later when my son was about to be born and I got all the well meaning gifts at the baby shower, I started to think, "Well, I'm really good at reading food labels that why don't I give these labels ago, go and have a look at what's in these products before I start lathering them all on my precious unborn."

06:58 And I was horrified to learn that about 90% of what was in there was petroleum derived. That really then sent me on the journey of learning what these chemicals were, I discovered endocrine disrupting chemical families. I discovered the word fragrance and how that can have up to 140 different chemical compounds inside it's secret little word recipe thing there. And again, my sense of justice around the secrecy and the lack of longterm research done before things are brought out to market.

07:32 Really just, for me, those two things happening in a bit of a wave and a few little things in between made me think I need to focus my skills on education, empowerment, and motivation and nerdiness. I always liked a bit of a nerd factor.

Stephen

 Doing well. It's so great to be here. Thank you for having me on your show.

Stu 

 No, thank you so much for your time. I know that you're a busy man. But first up, for all of those that may not be familiar with your work, I'd love it if you could just tell our listeners a little bit about yourself please.

Stephen

 Sure. I'm a board certified Naturopath doctor. I work out of Boston, Massachusetts here in the US. But we are actually at a probably 90% virtual practice right now. So we are trying to pioneer and push forward the ability to get people functional medicine, lab testing, all over the world. We basically work with people, well, all over the world but we ship to 19 different countries. I'm trying to get people to find out what their underlying root cause imbalances are. And I've just made that my mission in life. I had my own health struggles when I was young. I was able to overcome those with the help of other practitioners and that eventually led me to studying all over the world. In India, China, Sri Lanka, Europe, and all over the US. And my belief is this, is that there is no one best form of medicine but the best form of medicine is that which encompasses and integrates all forms of medicine. And that's what I try to preach to this day.
