    📝 Podcast Summary

    Why Functional Medicine Is Revolutionizing Healthcare - It's About Time!

    Functional medicine focuses on optimizing health by addressing the root causes of symptoms and conditions, rather than simply managing them with medications. Conventional medicine often relies on standard reference ranges that may not reflect optimal health for individuals. Functional medicine practitioners use more comprehensive lab testing to determine personalized treatment plans based on each person's unique bio individuality. They consider factors such as gut health, chronic infections, nutrient deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, and even emotional factors like trauma and shame. The goal is to find the most effective options with minimal side effects, taking into account the whole person, rather than solely relying on pharmaceutical interventions. Ultimately, functional medicine aims to help individuals feel their best by understanding and addressing the underlying causes of their health issues.

    Uncover the connection between gut health, autoimmunity, and mental well-being

    Conventional medicine focuses on diagnosing diseases and matching them with medication, while functional medicine takes a nutrition-forward approach to healthcare. Functional medicine recognizes that many health problems are driven by lifestyle factors such as diet, stress levels, sleep, and exposure to toxins. The approach is not an either-or, but a both-and perspective that integrates different tools within a person's toolbox, including medications, to achieve effective and sustainable healing. The conversation also highlights the impact of autoimmune and inflammatory conditions on quality of life and the need for a holistic approach that addresses both physical and mental aspects of health. Will Cole's book, "Gut Feelings," explores the connection between mental health, autoimmunity, and diet culture, emphasizing the importance of addressing both gut health and emotional well-being for overall wellness.

    The Surprising Link Between Mental Health and Inflammation Explained

    Mental health is closely connected to physical health, particularly to inflammation. Mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, and brain fog can have an inflammatory component. The gut and brain are interconnected, formed from the same fetal tissue, and continue to be linked throughout life through the gut-brain axis. The gut plays a significant role in mental health as it produces serotonin and dopamine, also known as the "second brain." On the other hand, the feeling side, including chronic stress and trauma, can impact the nervous system, raise inflammation levels, and affect hormone expression. Chronic inflammation is problematic and linked to various health issues, including autoimmune problems, type 2 diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and mental health conditions. Understanding and addressing inflammation is crucial for maintaining overall well-being.

    Discover the Silent Killer Inside You: Inflammation and Your Health

    Modulating and supporting healthy inflammatory pathways is crucial for overall well-being. Excess inflammation is associated with chronic health problems, just as deficiency can lead to immunosuppression and immunodeficiencies. The inflammation spectrum consists of silent inflammation, inflammation reactivity, and full-blown diagnosable issues. Common symptoms of chronic inflammation include brain fog, fatigue, dysregulated nervous system response, digestive problems, mental health issues, and hormonal problems. The leading causes of chronic inflammation stem from an evolutionary mismatch between our genetics and the modern world, including diet, stress levels, trauma, environmental toxins, and disruptions in our gut and soil microbiome. Additionally, shame and chronic stress can negatively impact physical health, highlighting the importance of self-compassion and emotional well-being.

    Discover the Surprising Link Between Stress and Inflammation!

    Chronic stress is a major contributor to inflammation and health problems. The study discussed in the conversation found that when people were subjected to stressful situations such as public speaking or doing math, their inflammation levels increased. However, those who practiced self-compassion during these stressful times had the lowest inflammation levels. Interestingly, the study also revealed that inflammation levels were higher on day 2 compared to day 1, indicating a cumulative effect of stress. Chronic stress can lead to various health issues, including autoimmune conditions, mental health problems, and metabolic disorders like type 2 diabetes. Therefore, it is crucial to develop resilience and find healthy ways to manage and reduce stress in order to protect our overall well-being.

    Discover your stress threshold and take control of your health

    Individuals have different thresholds for handling stressors and health problems. While some people have massive buckets and can handle a lot before reaching their tipping point, others may have smaller buckets and are more prone to health issues. However, regardless of our genetic tolerance, we have agency in what we put in our buckets. We can make choices about the foods we eat, our response to trauma, and the stressors we allow into our lives. This message of agency applies both on an individual level and at a societal level. Though the direction of technology and modern life may seem unhuman and overwhelming, there is a growing awareness that change is needed. By setting healthy boundaries with technology and looking to ancient practices like forest bathing, we can strive for a more balanced and fulfilling existence.

    Why Our Culture's Priorities Are Holding Us Back

    Our culture's priorities heavily influence our choices and behaviors. The pursuit of success and status often takes precedence over aspects like health and happiness, which are deemed less glamorous. Burnout is glorified and seen as a badge of honor, while self-care practices like proper nutrition and rest are undervalued. However, both Will Cole and Steven Bartlett highlight the importance of prioritizing one's health and well-being. They emphasize that sustainable success and a fulfilling life require a foundation of good health. Additionally, the conversation touches on intergenerational trauma, suggesting that the experiences and traumas of previous generations can have an impact on individuals. Ultimately, recognizing and challenging our culture's priorities can lead to making more informed decisions that prioritize our overall well-being.

    The shocking truth about how trauma is inherited genetically!

    Trauma can be passed down from generation to generation through epigenetic mechanisms. Research has shown that the traumatic experiences of our ancestors can impact our genes and influence our mental and physical health. This intergenerational trauma can increase the likelihood of mental health issues, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, and hormonal problems. While it may feel overwhelming to deal with our own trauma and that of our ancestors, it's important to shift our perspective and offer ourselves grace, forgiveness, and compassion. By understanding and addressing intergenerational trauma, we have the power to break the chains of dysfunction and heal ourselves, our families, and future generations. Though trauma may be inherited, so can healing.

    The shocking truth about how stress wreaks havoc on our bodies

    Our nervous system plays a crucial role in regulating our response to stress and maintaining overall well-being. The sympathetic nervous system triggers the fight or flight response, while the parasympathetic nervous system helps calm us down. However, many people experience a dysregulated nervous system due to an imbalance in the autonomic nervous system. Polyvagal theory explains how trauma can be stored in our bodies and how our thoughts and emotions impact our physical health. The three states of the nervous system range from a relaxed state to acute stress and severe conditions like burnout. The majority of the population is living in a state of hypervigilance, which is related to chronic stress and metabolic issues. Unhealthy foods that cause inflammation, particularly gluten-containing grains, also contribute to stress on our bodies.

    These 6 everyday foods are secretly causing inflammation in your body!

    Certain foods and substances can have a negative impact on our health, specifically in relation to inflammation and gut health. Wheat and other grains, when improperly prepared and overconsumed, can trigger inflammation levels in the body. Industrial seed oils, such as canola and soybean oil, are often overconsumed and can disrupt the healthy ratio of omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 fatty acids. Conventional dairy, unless it is grass-fed and organic, may contain inflammatory components due to genetic changes in cows. Excessive sugar intake, including hidden sugars in products like agave nectar, can also be detrimental to health. Finally, alcohol can disrupt the gut microbiome and contribute to systemic inflammation and cognitive decline. Maintaining a healthy gut microbiome is important as it influences various aspects of our physical and mental well-being, including immune function, neurotransmitter production, and inflammation regulation.

    This one simple trick can improve your gut health!

    The health of our microbiome is crucial for various aspects of our well-being, including immune function, digestion, hormone conversion, and even our cravings. The bacteria in our gut play a role in regulating how we think, feel, and operate. Taking care of our gut microbiome starts with the foods we eat, focusing on anti-inflammatory options and foods that support our overall health. Soups and stews, like those in the GAPS protocol, can be especially beneficial for gut health and reducing inflammation. Additionally, practices such as meditation, breath work, and forest bathing can support vagal tone and promote a healthy gut-brain connection. When shopping for gut-friendly foods, prioritize fiber-rich vegetables, protein sources, and nourishing broths like bone broth or plant-based options.

    Former Vegan Discovers Surprising Reason Why the Diet Failed

    It's important to listen to your body and make dietary choices that work best for you. Will Cole, who was previously vegan, realized that the vegan diet was not optimal for his health due to fatigue, brain fog, and digestive problems. He discovered that he had a gene variant that affected his ability to convert folic acid into folate, leading to higher levels of homocysteine and inflammation. By incorporating wild-caught fish, grass-fed beef, and collagen-based foods into his predominantly plant-based diet, he was able to alleviate these physical symptoms. This emphasizes the importance of personalizing diets based on individual needs and being open to pivoting or evolving dietary choices to optimize health.

    Why juice detoxes may not actually be good for you

    Juice detoxes may not be the optimal approach to wellness. While these detoxes can provide temporary relief from unhealthy eating habits, they lack the necessary fiber to support long-term success. Instead, a focus on incorporating whole foods and smoothies with blended fruits and vegetables can be more beneficial, as the fiber helps buffer the fructose in these drinks. The goal should be to give the gut a break from junk food and provide it with healthier options. When it comes to designing an optimal life for a teenager, it is important for parents to lead by example and focus on foods that love and nourish the body. Ultimately, the aim is for individuals to take ownership of their own health and make choices that support their well-being.

    Discover the surprising benefits of intermittent fasting for your health!

    Intermittent fasting can help optimize health and improve metabolic flexibility. By intentionally having periods of time without eating and breaking the fast later in the day, individuals can train their metabolism to be more resilient. This approach can be beneficial for most people in the West who are stuck in a sugar-burning state and experience insatiable cravings. Additionally, cultivating mindfulness through meditation practices can support the parasympathetic system and help manage anxiety and stress. It is important to acknowledge that everyone has struggles and imperfections, and it is okay to work on grounding oneself in the present moment. Having a strong support system is crucial in managing stress and staying positive in challenging roles, both professionally and personally.

    He Said No to Success Demands and Improved His Well-being

    Managing success and maintaining personal well-being requires setting boundaries and learning to say no. Will Cole acknowledges that as he becomes more successful, with books and podcasts, he is inundated with opportunities and demands on his time. However, he has realized the importance of prioritizing his health and well-being by saying no to certain opportunities. He understands that there are only so many hours in a day and that taking on too much can lead to chronic stress. By setting boundaries and learning to say no, Will is able to decrease his stress levels and maintain a balance between pursuing his purpose and taking care of himself. This is a valuable lesson for others who may also struggle with managing success and maintaining personal well-being.

    Discover the Controversial Method that's Revolutionizing Healthcare

    Functional medicine, despite facing criticism and pushback from conventional medicine, has shown positive results in improving people's health and quality of life. While some may still view functional medicine as controversial or dismiss it as "quackery" or "woo woo," the growing acceptance and adoption of functional medicine by mainstream institutions like the Cleveland Clinic indicates its effectiveness. The statistics and data speak for themselves, with functional medicine successfully reducing and eliminating the need for medications and getting people healthy. The conversation highlights the need for a different approach to healthcare, considering the United States' high healthcare spending, poor health outcomes, and shorter lifespan compared to other industrialized nations. It challenges traditional notions and encourages embracing functional medicine as a means to achieve better health.

    Moment 156: Your Stress Is Making you Fat & Sick... Here's How To Fix It!

    Moment 156: Your Stress Is Making you Fat & Sick... Here's How To Fix It!
    In this moment, neuroscientist and bestselling author, Dr Tara Swart discusses the brain-body impacts of stress and the dangers of being around stressful people. While people think of stress as being solely a mental health problem, it can physical health impacts, the most obvious being an increase in belly fat. This fat is a result of the stress hormone cortisol, which because of evolution, tells your body to hold onto fat as a survival mechanism. Because of this, you can’t shift this belly weight with either diet or exercise, the only thing that will change it is addressing the stress that is causing the release of cortisol. Dr Swart also says that leaders who cannot handle their stress, who she calls, ‘leaky cortisol people’, can cause a trickle down effect in an organisation, causing stress and negative health impacts on the people below them.

    Moment 155: The "Post Date 8" Questions You Need To Ask To Find 'The One' - Logan Ury

    Moment 155: The "Post Date 8" Questions You Need To Ask To Find 'The One' - Logan Ury
    In this moment, behavioural expert and dating coach, Logan Ury discusses the 3 fundamental things to look for in a partner. Too often people have a rigid list of exact traits that they want in their future partner in relationship science this is called, ‘relationship shopping’. This is the idea of shopping for your partner like you would do with any product online. However, more often than not, people end up in a long term relationship with someone who has none of these traits. The reason for this is that while people may think they know what they want, they are wrong. Instead, Logan says you need to date like a scientist, experimenting and constantly changing your hypothesis of what you want in a partner. This can be achieved by using Logan’s 8 questions to ask yourself after a date, the focus of this is examining who are you around that person, and what side of you do they bring out, as this is who you will be for the rest of the relationship.

    Moment 154: The Truth About Quiet Quitting: Simon Sinek

    Moment 154: The Truth About Quiet Quitting: Simon Sinek
    In this moment, bestselling author and business leadership speaker, Simon Sinek discusses quiet quitting and the importance of expectation management when it comes to work. Simon says that both employers and employees need to be more open and honest about what they want from their professional relationship. For instance, he says that Amazon is very open that it is a very tough and competitive culture, so people can choose whether they want to work in that sort of environment. Equally, employees need to be honest about how they want work to fit into their life, do they want an easy casual job or do they want to push hard and be ambitious. Simon believes we need to treat work like a conversation, previously it has been treated like a speech where workers were told what they were going to do, but now people can ask, why does work have to be that way?
