    COVID-19 Special: Understanding and Supercharging your Immune System with Dr. Jeff Bland

    COVID-19 Special: Understanding and Supercharging your Immune System with Dr. Jeff Bland

    One of the biggest buzz words being thrown around during this time of uncertainty is “immune function.” People are suddenly interested in how to support their immune systems and how the coronavirus can hijack the immune system to create a potentially-deadly cytokine storm. So, on today’s podcast, we dive deep into the immune system to ultimately answer the question: What exactly is the immune system?
    On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host Dhru talks with the father of Functional Medicine, Jeff Bland PhD. Dr. Bland is the Founder and President of the Personalized Lifestyle Medicine Institute and is an internationally recognized leader in the nutritional medicine field for over 35 years. He is a Fellow of both the American College of Nutrition where he is a Certified Nutrition Specialist and the Association for Clinical Biochemistry.
    Dr. Bland has authored five books on nutritional medicine for the healthcare professional and six books on nutrition and health for the general public including The Disease Delusion: Conquering the Causes of Chronic Illness for a Healthier, Longer, and Happier Life. He is also the principal author of over 120 peer-reviewed research papers on nutritional biochemistry and medicine.
    In this episode, Dhru and Dr. Bland discuss the importance of gut health for overall immune function. We know that being over a certain age can increase the risk for contracting or experiencing complications from COVID-19; we also know that gut health is essential in rejuvenating your immune system and that this is something people of all ages can work on. They also cover how vital your nutritional status is and compare it to a rainforest—the more diversity, the more stability—and how now, more than ever, is the time to focus on eating whole, real foods and not food-like substances.

    #100: How to Find Your Voice, Heal Your Past, and Change Your Life with IN-Q

    “Learned fear can be overcome 
    When you realize the voice inside your head 
    Is not yours
    It’s an imitation of the voices from before
    Repeating on a loop inside your quiet core
    And you can’t tell the difference
    Cause it sounds the same
    But trust me when I tell you
    Most of what you think
    Is from somebody else’s brain”

    How to Cope with Anxiety and Other Unpleasant Feelings with Dr. Joan Rosenberg

    How to Cope with Anxiety and Other Unpleasant Feelings with Dr. Joan Rosenberg

    All this week we are sharing special episodes (some old, some new) to help our community navigate these challenging times.
    Today's episode is a modified version of a past episode with Dr. Joan Rosenberg on the topic of how to cope with anxiety and other unpleasant feelings.
    Here are the original show notes from the episode:
    What often blocks most people from success and feeling capable in life is the ability to experience, move through, and handle unpleasant feelings, such as sadness, shame, helplessness, anger, embarrassment, disappointment, frustration, and vulnerability. 
    Knowing how to deal with intense, overwhelming, or uncomfortable feelings is essential to building confidence, emotional strength, and resilience. Yet when we distract or disconnect from these feelings, we move away from confidence, health, and our desired pursuits, ultimately undermining our ability to fully realize our ambitions.
    On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host, Dhru, talks to Dr. Joan Rosenberg, a psychologist who is known as an innovative thinker, acclaimed speaker, and trainer. She is a professor of graduate psychology at Pepperdine University in Los Angeles, CA, and is a two-time TEDx speaker and member of the Association of Transformational Leaders. Dr. Rosenberg has been featured in the documentary I Am, The Miracle Mindset, Pursuing Happiness, and The Hidden Epidemic. She’s been seen on CNN’s American Morning, the OWN network, and PBS, as well as appearances and radio interviews in all of the major metropolitan markets. Her latest book, 90 Seconds to a Life You Love: How to Master Your Difficult Feelings to Cultivate Lasting Confidence, Resilience and Authenticity, was released this past February. 
    In this episode, Dhru and Dr. Rosenberg talk about how to work through unpleasant feelings, and how to build emotional strength to create the life of your dreams. They discuss why worrying about what other people think of you is really just a distraction from feeling vulnerable, and why harsh self-criticism is one of the most destructive things we can do to ourselves. They also talk about why speaking your truth is the most important action to take to cultivate confidence, authenticity, and resilience.

    #98: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions with Dr. Terry Wahls

    #98: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions with Dr. Terry Wahls

    Like many physicians, Dr. Terry Wahls focused on treating her patients’ ailments with drugs or surgical procedures—until she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000. Within three years, her back and stomach muscles had weakened to the point where she needed a reclined wheelchair. Conventional medical treatments were failing her, and she feared that she would be bedridden for the rest of her life.
    Dr. Wahls began studying the latest research on autoimmune disease and brain biology and decided to get her vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids from the food she ate rather than pills and supplements. To do this, she adopted the nutrient-rich Paleo diet, gradually refining and integrating it into a regimen of neuromuscular stimulation. First, she walked slowly, then steadily, and then she biked eighteen miles in a single day. In November 2011, Dr. Wahls shared her remarkable recovery in a TEDx talk that immediately went viral. 
    On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host, Dhru, talks to Dr. Terry Wahls, a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa. She is also a patient with secondary progressive multiple sclerosis. Dr. Wahls restored her health using a diet and lifestyle program she designed specifically for her brain and now pedals her bike to work each day. She is the author of The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine, The Wahls Protocol: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles, and the cookbook, The Wahls Protocol Cooking for Life: The Revolutionary Modern Paleo Plan to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions. 
    Dr. Wahls conducts clinical trials that test the effect of nutrition and lifestyle interventions to treat MS and other progressive health problems. She also teaches the public and medical community about the healing power of the Paleo diet and therapeutic lifestyle changes that restore health and vitality to our citizens. Every August, she hosts a Wahls Protocol Seminar where anyone can learn how to implement her Protocol with ease and success.
    In this episode, Dhru and Dr. Wahls talk about how she stunned the medical community by reversing her painful symptoms of MS. They discuss The Wahls Protocol and how it’s transforming the lives of people with autoimmune conditions and they get into the latest scientific findings on fasting, ketosis, neurorehabilitation, and behavior change when it comes to treating MS and other autoimmune conditions. 
    In this episode, we dive into:
    -Dr. Wahls’ MS diagnosis and what she did to reverse her symptoms (2:04)
    -How Dr. Wahls changed her diet using Paleo principles (25:15)
    -The important role vitamin K plays in the body, especially when it comes to myelin repair (30:54)
    -How immunosuppressant drugs block the repair that your brain is attempting to do (45:57)
    -The Wahls Protocol and how it helps other chronic autoimmune conditions (55:50)
    -How research gets funded (1:00:05)
    -How Dr. Wahls went from being banned from the National MS society to receiving funding for her research (1:10:37)
    -The science of fasting (1:34:18)
    -The importance of having a clear mission, purpose, and goal when it comes to your health (1:41:30)
    -Where to learn more about Dr. Terry Wahls (1:47:08)
