    The Number Of Ingredients is TOO DAMN HIGH! Less-is-More For Improving Your Mental Health (With Georgie Collinson)

    The Number Of Ingredients is TOO DAMN HIGH! Less-is-More For Improving Your Mental Health (With Georgie Collinson)

    Angela is talking with Georgie Collinson who is an expert in optimising peoples physiological health to support mental health and cognition.

    In this episode, she talks to Angela about anxiety, gut health and some of the causes of inflammation in the body.

    Georgie explains the impact of different food groups on the gut and shares practical advice on how to make changes that will make a difference.

    This is a great opportunity to reflect on the signs and symptoms that help us all to know how things are going and take positive action to improve our health.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    The processing that foods go through is a significant factor in the amount of damage these foods can cause to the gut.
    You should always look for the minimum number of ingredients in any product.
    If you have symptoms that disrupt your life prior to menstruation then you are likely to have a deficiency of progesterone. This deficiency is usually a result of stress.
    Too much of anything is not great and if you notice inflammation when you have dairy then stop having it.
    If anyone is experiencing anxiety, then stopping caffeine can help to identify if your body functions better without it.
    There are benefits to caffeine so finding out how it affects you is the key to knowing what’s right for you.
    Anxiety is a normal human emotion and can be a great navigation tool helping us to navigate to the things that benefit us.
    If you have a panic attack the best thing you can do is to try and allow the feeling of anxiety to be there and understand it.
    Allowing the sensation to be there is one of the most effective ways to be in control of it.
    The power a panic attack has goes away when you learn to accept it.
    Understanding that you cannot help anyone when you are depleted is about recognising you need to look after yourself so you can show up and help everyone else.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘If you try and fight a panic attack it gains momentum’

    ‘Giving to yourself means you are able to others’

    ‘I’m neutral in my approach because I don’t want people to be anxious about food’

    Optimising Physical and Mental Endurance with Long Range Fuel

    Optimising Physical and Mental Endurance with Long Range Fuel

    Angela is with Greg Potter, co-founder of Resilient Nutrition who provide nut-based products designed to enhance health and performance.

    Greg has focused on making sustainably performing at your best convenient, simple and delicious through a nut-based long range fuel product. To ensure the needs of individuals can be met across various scenarios and at differing points of the day, there are 4 versions available to support before, during and after exercise activities.

    Long range fuel products are the result of experience and cutting edge science and helped to power the record-breaking effort to row the Atlantic in 2019 and in this episode Greg explains how to get the greatest benefits from this exciting new product.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Long range foods are required in ultra-endurance activities and also support strength, power activities and knowledge work.
    There are different versions available to support various exercise scenarios across different times of the day;

    -Energise

    -Energise and rebuild

    -Calm

    -Calm and rebuild
    The energise version contains caffeine and is ideal in the morning and before ultra-endurance events and the calm versions can be used at any time of the day.
    People should always use products according to their individual need and responses.
    During ultra-endurance and endurance exercise fat is key to providing energy substrates but in short explosive exercise, the caffeine can provide the boost required.
    The combination of the fat, fibre and the protein helps support stable blood sugar levels and caffeine has well-characterised effects on mental performance.
    Long range fuel products can enhance knowledge work and can also be a suitable meal replacement for individuals.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘The energise version is ideal before and during exercise and the calm and rebuild versions are brilliant post-exercise’

    ‘The coconut and almond product is designed specifically for those who are on a keto diet’

    ‘Our bodies are not adapted to consuming the processed foods that are available today’

    Why You MUST HAVE Balance of Mindset & Movement; The Physical, Chemical and Emotional Mechanics of Long Distance Running With Chiropractor Dr Josh Handt

    Why You MUST HAVE Balance of Mindset & Movement; The Physical, Chemical and Emotional Mechanics of Long Distance Running With Chiropractor Dr Josh Handt

    Angela is in conversation with Dr Josh Handt, full-time chiropractor, lifestyle podcaster and natural health and fitness enthusiast

    They talk about the importance of the nervous system and its impact on all aspects of function in the body. Movement is essential for humans but the body is not designed to be in a continual state of stress so the physiology of the body reflects the emotional state.

    As humans are designed to run getting out there and running can be the key to a better balance of your emotional state.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Movement is essential and very important for humans; you should be moving all the time.
    Sitting or standing for a length of time is never good for the body as it throws out the posture.
    The central nervous system is the master control system for the whole body constantly sending information messages throughout the body.
    The sensory nervous system is responsible for feelings and how you engage with life. 
    The motor system is how we animate our bodies and the autonomic system is the system responsible for the involuntary actions.
    The way you keep healthy is by maximising function
    Stressors for the body are physical, chemical and emotional.
    Your body is not designed to be in a continual state of chronic stress Your physiology is a response to your emotional state.
    Humans are born to run and the nervous system in our feet is very complex, sending messages continually to the brain.
    when running the biomechanics of the body are affected by the shoes we wear.
    For short distance running, you use your body but distances beyond this are all about your mindset.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘I love sharing my message and pushing my body and mind to the limit’

    ‘The focus should be on making the good bits as good as they can be’

    ‘You know you are doing well in running and exercise when your recovery time is quick’

    Metabolic Flexibility: Achieve Your Ideal Body Composition & Burn Fats and Carbs on demand with Siim Land

    Metabolic Flexibility: Achieve Your Ideal Body Composition & Burn Fats and Carbs on demand with Siim Land

    Angela is with Siim Land author, speaker and content creator talking about biohacking and health optimisation through metabolic flexibility

    Siim shares some great content and information about understanding how to adapt your body so it can choose what fuel to burn on demand making you better at burning fat, burning carbs and developing all-round metabolic flexibility.

    They also discuss the vital role quality of sleep plays in health optimisation and longevity in an episode packed with informative content.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Metabolic flexibility refers to the body’s ability to swop between fuel sources.
    The human body can be very flexible and has a number of different sources for fuel.
    Everyone’s diet should be personalised and the goal should be to be keto-adapted rather than in ketosis all the time.
    A cyclical keto diet is when you eat low carbs for a period and then eat carbs to refuel.
    The main stimulus for muscle growth is mechanical overload when the muscles are stimulated.
    Working out in a fasted state will facilitate more fat burning because of fuel partitioning but you still need to be working with a calorie deficit.
    There will be a reduction in your metabolic rate as you lose weight, so there needs to be a reduction in the natural calorie intake.
    Sleep deprivation and stress can impact on weight loss as it makes your body hold onto fat
    If you are constantly running on adrenalin then your body will start to produce less cortisol because the adrenals become fatigued.
    Focusing on the quality of your sleep is key because sleep deprivation can have an impact across many areas of your body.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘Metabolic flexibility enables the body to burn a required fuel on-demand’

    ‘If you get up in the morning and feel fatigued then it’s a sign of low cortisol’

    ‘Sleep is one of the most important factors for longevity’

    Maximise oxygen utilisation efficiency, enhance mental clarity and exercise performance, alleviate asthma and protect against viruses and bacteria with Patrick McKeown author of The Oxygen Advantage

    Maximise oxygen utilisation efficiency, enhance mental clarity and exercise performance, alleviate asthma and protect against viruses and bacteria with Patrick McKeown author of The Oxygen Advantage

    Angela is with Patrick McKeown, author of The Oxygen Advantage.

    They explore the values of breathing through the nose and the long term effects for those who mouth breathe.

    Breathing is both very simple and very complex and evolution has, in the nose, created an effective initial line of defence against viruses and infection whilst the way in which we breathe impacts throughout the body. This informative episode provides great value and in-depth information about this vital function of the human body.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    When you hold your breath, you open up your nose. The more you breathe through your nose the more it opens up.
    Breathing is both very simple and very complex.
    Whenever we are confronted by stress we breathe hard and fast. Slow breathing is conducive to calming the mind.
    A child’s achievement is linked to their sleep and their sleep is influenced by how they breathe. 
    In the process of breathing too hard, you can get rid of too much carbon dioxide, impair blood circulation and affect tissue and organ saturation.
    Your nose is there to breathe in and out of and evolution has done a wonderful job.
    Your nose is your first line of defence against viruses and infection.
    We can change our blood circulation through breathing patterns. We can change biomechanics and biochemistry of breathing to increase functions throughout the body.
    Breathing can be trained regardless of the environment and situation
    Your mouth serves no function in regards to breathing.
    If a child mouth breathes for a long time it comprises the shape of the face.
    Children who are mouth breathing are unlikely to reach their full potential
    We have to look at the bio directional relationship of breathing, sleeping and our emotions along with the interconnections.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘It’s all about breathing in and out through the nose’

    ‘The nose is the first line of defence for the lungs’

    ‘Your mouth serves no function with regard to breathing’

    Gut Health and Mental Health Making the Connection - Interview with Ryan Evans, Dietician and specialist in Gut Micro Biology

    Gut Health and Mental Health Making the Connection - Interview with Ryan Evans, Dietician and specialist in Gut Micro Biology

    In this episode, Angela is talking with Ryan Evans former bodybuilder, MMA fighter and registered dietician with a particular interest in gut microbiology and mental health.

    As a bodybuilder Ryan looked healthy but inside was a different story. After learning to heal himself he now dedicates his time to helping others understand the role gut microbiology plays in not only your physical health but also your mental health.

    He explains how to get your nutrition right and make the changes that will mean you are looking after yourself well inside and out.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    I was very unaware of what was going on with me. I looked great but never felt happy in my body.
    Our gut is our first brain not our second brain because it is where all the neurotransmitters and hormones are.
    Most of the time-poor gut health is a result of a diet high in sugars, carbs, and in inorganic and dead food.
    We are eating food from dead soil that has no nutrients but has significant quantities of chemicals and pesticides.
    Our mental health problems are increasing as our gut health is decreasing.
    Nutrition is everything you should eat things in the most wild and natural state.
    It’s important to get back to basics and eat good whole foods for your metabolic type and individual need.
    People go by how they feel on the day immediately after eating but the response may only be evident days later.
    Food produces hormones and neurotransmitters and if you are deficient in hormones and neurotransmitters you are going to feel unwell.
    If you are spending time working out then you also need to spend time working in and recovering from what happens in your day.
    Our issues are in our tissues so it’s important to move your body in a gentle way to calm yourself.
    If you can start the day in gratitude then you are setting yourself up in a positive way for the day ahead.
    Who do you really want to be and does your inside match your outside?

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘IBS is a very wide term used when people can’t get to the bottom of gut issues’

    ‘I’m an advocate for people eating best-sourced food as possible, it just makes sense’

    ‘I’m all about being intuitive about how my body is feeling and adapting’
