And she's the one who introduced us to neurofeedback and healing as a whole. And I just decided to follow her footsteps and get into this field. And I just published a book about this whole story. It's called From client to Clinician. And yeah, I work with primarily children with special needs. So any neurodiverse and brain challenges [crosstalk 00:03:04].

    Questions asked in the episode

    Should we simply accept that low energy is to be expected as we age? What are the tell-tale signs that we’re suffering from chronic low energy? What are ‘The 7 Deadly Energy Disruptors’? http://180nutrition.com.au/

Over to Dr. Gundry.
    Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Dr. Steven Gundry to the podcast. Dr. Gundry, good afternoon. How are you?
    Steven                                   
    Stu? Thanks so much for having me. Appreciate it.
    Stu                                    
    No. Well at the pleasure's all mine. Now I would imagine that the majority of our audience will have heard of you, but first up for those that haven't. I wondered... I'd love it if you could just tell me a little bit about yourself, please.
    Steven
     Oh, gosh. No, that'd take the entire 45 minutes. So I'm a world famous heart surgeon that just over 20 years ago, saw a gentleman reverse inoperable coronary artery disease by changing his diet and taking some supplements from a health food store. And it was the most amazing thing I ever saw. Didn't believe it could happen, but saw it with my own eyes. So I actually experimented on myself and my patients. I resigned my prestigious chairmanship of heart surgery at Loma Linda University and open clinics where I teach people how to eat. And now 80% of my practice is autoimmune diseases that have defied treatment. And so whatever anybody comes in with. So we usually have a good time. Now we'll go-

    This week I’m excited to welcome Dr. Stephen Hussey back to the show. Dr. Hussey is a Chiropractor, Functional Medicine Practitioner, and Online Health Coach. He’s the author of  a new book called Understanding the Heart: Uncommon Insights into Our Most Commonly Diseased Organ. In this episode, we discuss the most common myths surrounding heart health and we dig deep into nutrition, movement, and mindset, and more. Over to Dr. Hussey. Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Dr. Steven Hussey back to the podcast. Dr. Hussey, how are you?
    Dr Stephen Hussey
    (01:22)
    I’m doing great. How are you?
    Stu
    (01:23)
    Yeah, really good. really good. I’m very excited about the conversation today. I think our listeners are going to get a huge amount out of this as well. But first up for all of those that perhaps didn’t listen to our first conversation and are not familiar with you, I’d love it if you can just tell us a little bit about yourself, please.
    Dr Stephen Hussey
    (01:43)
    Yeah. So I live in the States. I am a Chiropractor and Functional Medicine Doctor. And I do mostly neuromusculoskeletal stuff in my clinical practice, but I also do a lot of nutrition and I have a master’s in nutrition and functional medicine. And I do a lot of metabolic health and things like that. And as a child I had a lot of inflammatory conditions I would say. Everything from IBS to chronic hives, to asthma, to terrible allergies and things ultimately ended up with type 1 diabetes, autoimmune, my body attack my pancreas and I no longer make insulin.
    Dr Stephen Hussey
    (02:27)
    And that kind of sent me on this path to health. Over time, I started to find out that the way I lived my life had an impact on how I could manage type 1 diabetes. I’d also been told by many physicians that having that I was predisposed to heart disease two to four times increased risk. And so that spurred this, I guess, passion for figuring out how to mitigate heart disease the best I could and also how to manage type 1 the best I could.
    Dr Stephen Hussey
    (02:58)
    And so I’ve just been this, I don’t know, I get a little obsessed with finding those things and obsessed with researching. Because I got a chiropractic education and a master’s in nutrition and I still didn’t feel satisfied and I just wanted to know more and dig in deep. And so that’s what I’ve been doing and I recently wrote this book. I wrote a book before but this is my second book called Understanding the Heart. And it’s just everything that I’ve come to learn about the heart and I’m pretty excited about it.

    I am doing wonderfully this afternoon for me and morning for you.
    Stu
    01:45
    Yes. Yeah. Connecting via the internet once again. Thank you so much for sharing some of your time today. But, first up, for all those 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.
    Amy
    01:58
    Sure. I am a pediatric emergency doctor by training. I did most of my clinical work in any areas of suffering. So I did a child abuse fellowship, I did pediatrics, I did research in nausea, I invented the BARF scale for children with cancer to be able to say, "That barfing face, that's the one I feel like." Now I am a full-time CEO of a medical device company that blocks out sharp pain.
    Stu
    02:27
    Wow, fantastic. Well, interesting topic then because pain is very personal, it's very unique to the individual.
    I guess first question then when talking about pain, many of us will be subject to pain throughout our days, weeks, lives, whether it be headache, sports injury, leading to perhaps more serious complications where pain is involved. How might we know if our pain is normal, i.e., "Oh, it's just a headache," or we should see a medical professional?

    Hey guys, this is Stu from one 80 nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Dr. Nicki Steinberger back to the podcast. Dr. Nicki, how are you?
    Dr. Nicki
     I'm fantastic. Stewart. Thank you for having me back. How fun two years later.
    Stu
     Absolutely. Well, I think that there's a whole heap that we need to catch up on, and no doubt we've all made some learnings during that time as well. So I'm really keen to dial in, but first up for all of our listeners that may not have heard our previous conversation, I would love it if you'd just tell us a little bit about yourself.
    Dr. Nicki           
    Yeah. So if I go back, oh, about 10 years, I could start there and say that I found myself with some peculiar symptoms, shaking and fatigue and getting very burnt out and went into the doctor and had some tests done. And I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. So 2010, 45 years old, and that's when I got to work on questioning, what can I do about this? I don't want to jump into pharmaceuticals. I want to see what I can do with lifestyle. And lo and behold, I tested 12 months later and I had reversed it. So what I was doing was working and that of course felt phenomenal. And I had an aha moment. And then I went on to teach workshops and coach folks and transitioned from going towards psychotherapy into holistic health education, which I had been really studying for most of my life.
    I published a book on it in 2019, Wave Goodbye to Type 2 Diabetes. It was endorsed by Dr. Christian Northrup. And then here we are today and talk about I'm opening Ditch the Sugar Academy and working with folks one-on-one and really focusing in on sugar addiction.
