    How Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Works as a Panacea with Dr Jason Sonners

    How Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Works as a Panacea with Dr Jason Sonners

    No matter what specialised diet or treatment you undergo, we are all affected by aging and oxidative stress. In the medical field, treatments are widely reactive and target specific things like infections. However, health is more than just counteracting sickness — it should also be about helping our body regenerate!  There is now emerging research about hyperbaric oxygen therapy and its ability to help with sickness and improve general health. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is not a cure-all miracle, however, it can help supply our bodies with the oxygen they need to repair and heal themselves! 
    In this episode, Dr Jason Sonners tackle common misconceptions about oxygen and hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Dr Jason discusses oxidative stress and what can make it positive or negative for our bodies. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy may not be widely used in hospitals, but the emerging research surrounding it shows incredible results. Take your health into your own hands and discover how hyperbaric oxygen therapy can improve your health!
    If you want to learn more about how hyperbaric oxygen therapy works, then this episode is for you!

    [REPLAY] How to Achieve Good Foot Health with Dave Liow

    [REPLAY] How to Achieve Good Foot Health with Dave Liow

    Do you ever pay much attention to your feet? Our feet are our first point of contact with the ground, and we walk around on them all day. But most people just wear shoes and call it a day. And if you’re a runner, then all the more reason to maintain good foot health! So how do we take care of our feet? Dave Liow, an exercise physiologist and holistic movement coach, joins me in this episode to discuss feet and how to optimise foot health. We talk about some common foot conditions, and he also shares advice on selecting the right shoes and improving foot mechanics.
    For runners and everyone else, don’t miss this episode and learn how you can achieve good foot health!

    Episode Highlights [03:29] Why Feet?
    When he started looking at movement, Dave noticed that the feet were one of the areas trainers had no idea about. People have 28 bones in the feet and 55 articulations from below the knee. Over a third of the bones here are in the feet, which tells us how important they are. It’s an area largely being neglected by movement experts and professionals. [05:45] What Shoes Do to Our Feet So much space in the brain is devoted to our feet and hands, and if you walk around with sensory deprivation chambers on them, you’ll lose that space. The bottom of the foot (plantar fascia) is extremely precarious, full of reflectors that send information to your brain about how you’re moving and interacting with the ground. By wearing shoes, we break that link. [09:56] Improving Foot Mechanics and Foot Health Keep your feet out of shoes as much as possible. Whenever Dave has the chance to go barefoot, he does. By going barefoot, you are giving as much information to your feet as you possibly can. Shoes provide a lot of support for your feet. Not wearing shoes will improve your feet’s strength. A healthy foot is a mobile foot. If you can’t do a lot with your toes, it shows you need to do some conditioning on your feet to make them smarter and stronger.

    Misconceptions and Truths About the Ketogenic Diet with Richard Smith

    Misconceptions and Truths About the Ketogenic Diet with Richard Smith

    Off the top of your head, think about the healthy foods you eat regularly. Does your diet contain seed oils and carbs? How about protein-rich and fatty food?
    There are a lot of misconceptions about what foods are healthy or not. Many of these beliefs are further perpetuated by the media, big food companies and even nutrition advice from the government. For instance, did you know that “heart-healthy foods” with omega-6 are highly inflammatory and that high cholesterol levels can help in healing? The key is to find what works best for your body, but it’s not always easy with misinformation so rampant.
    In this episode, Richard Smith discusses how the ketogenic diet has changed his life. Not only did it reverse his health issues significantly, but it also made him into a bodybuilding champion. He also explains how “healthy” foods are doing the exact opposite of what we’re led to believe. Whether or not you wish to start a ketogenic diet, it’s vital to go back to the basics of nutrition and learn what is harmful and helpful to your body. 
    If you want to learn more about the ketogenic diet for a healthier and stronger body, then this episode is for you!
    Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode: Learn how the ketogenic diet can benefit both athletes and non-athletes.  Discover how your perspective on “healthy” foods may be wrong and harmful.
