    Episode #428 with Dr. Melanie and Intuitive Healing

    Dr. Melanie is back again for Part Two Episode on Intuitive health coaching! 
    We don’t talk too much about training, fueling and performing for the low carb athlete BUT I feel that this in a fascinating topic to share and dive into – so hopefully you learn something new in this episode or experience an “ah ha”! 
    “After having gut health and weight problems over half my life, I use my naturopathic expertise and epigenetic intuition to help people understand their bodies and lives better to take part in their own rescue and receive the precise care that they need. My why is all about epigenetics. I was raised in SE Alaska on a pristine diet and active lifestyle yet my gut microbiome imbalance lead to obesity.
    "Discovery of raw food plant based eating resulted in effortless release of weight and an inspiration to become a naturopathic doctor. Extensive post graduate training by the top experts in small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), intestinal methanogen overgrowth (IMO) and epigenetics lead me to acupressure, neuroscience and biofield therapies due to my own experiences with the profound affects of grief. It has been through this process that my psychic and mediumship abilities have been unleashed from hiding.
    My passion is expanding the knowledge and term epigenetic intuition, my purpose is to be the light that guides people to find themselves, my mission is to stop the "never ending SIBO treatment" madness and get results!! 
    I believe everyone is intuitive and may relate to this in their own area of expertise or in a talent. I also believe people have they ability to develop their intuition and expand in additional areas in their lives. The ability to communicate this intuition about oneself to health experts who are also intuitive is an amazing combination for optimizing ones health.”

    Episode #426 with Frank on KetoneAid & Ketone Esters

    Episode #426 with Frank on KetoneAid & Ketone Esters

    Ketone Aid:  Ketone Esters
    Have you tried taking ketone esters as a sports supplement? 
    Before an intense work meeting? 
    How about before you sleep?
    In this episode, Debbie chats with Frank LLosa, the founder of Ketone Aid.
    Learn more here https://ketoneaid.com/protocol/ and find out about how to start your N = 1 experiment with ketone esters!   We don’t want to chase ketones- start with becoming fat adapted first and work on stress management skills as chronic stress increase glucose so you can “run from the lion” and prioritize your safety. 
     
    Do you need to supplement with Ketone Esters on a demanding day for more cognitive effect? 
    Are you shifting into low carb food plan?  Ketone Esters may help you out in the transition into a Nutritional Ketosis.
    What about if you are doing a longer water fast and need a little brain boost? 
    Ketone Esters may help you prolong the fast.
    Let's dive into the "Sports Protocol":  SUGGESTED SERVING SIZE
    Each "serving" is technically 60ml of KE4 (30g of the Ketone Ester), but do not start with a full bottle.
    More is NOT always better. More may lower blood glucose too much, lower top speed, and reduce performance substantially. It is based on weight, so if you weight 2x the average person, you may need more. And if you are lightweight, you will need much less. Numbers below are based on 70 kilos.
    Start in practice, NOT in a race. (Updated March 2021)
    Micro dosing KE4:  (Micro dosing is a fancy word for taking smaller amounts of KE4)
    If using KE1 (compare) and adjust. 1 bottle of KE1 is = to about 2 capfuls of KE4)
    Pre-Workout:  Start here. (All Athletes, regardless of diet)

    Regardless of your diet.
    A) Full Keto & fat adapted
    B) New to keto or intermittent fasting, or
    C) Full carb/western diet.

    Step 1: Empty stomach (at least 2-3 hours, if not overnight). This really is key. Without this, you may have to take more or do the dual fuel protocol with carbs and it still not be better. Why? (see this video) and more details on Fasted Workouts here
    Step 2:
    MOST COMMON: 1 to 3 capfuls of KE4 (same as 1/2 to 1.5 bottles of KE1) about 15 min before warmup or workout.
    * 1-2 capful for females or much lighter males,
    * 2-3 capfuls for NON keto males.
    * 1-4 capfuls for keto males, (Keto athletes find benefit at lower amounts, BUT some are able to take more without the blood sugar dropping effect that non keto people get.)
    Warning, if you take it too early like 30-60 min and don't use the fuel, you may get tired (i.e. blood sugar crash).
    Some sprinters have taken it 45 min before without issue.
    Just test in practice the EXACT protocols you plan to use.


    Note that glucose is not necessary (and could be worse) with this small amount since blood glucose does not drop too much with micro dosing. Glucose also causes inflammation, it is a dirty fuel with lactic acid as a byproduct (ketones create zero lactic acid). The theory here is micro dosing may trigger endogenous ketone production (where your body makes ketones), whereas more may hault that production or it can also drop blood sugar too much. Some may stick with this protocol and not move up in quantity. Play around with different amounts Then try 15ml up to 25ml of KE4 (again, until you reach 30ml, you may not need carbs.) If you do notice a difference with 10-15ml, some may drop to 5ml to see how that works. I wouldn't start with 5ml because it may be too subtle, but you can if you feel the energy is still available. Tips: Don't go out faster expecting a better final result. Go out as normal as possible and then later in the practice you can increase your speed if you want.

    Episode #425: Training your body to burn fat with Ryan Baxter

    Today I chat with fellow health coach Ryan Baxter on common struggles to burn fat, improve performance and longevity.  I love diving deep into the WHY and looking at the WHOLE picture to collect the missing pieces of an individual’s health puzzle to restore their health back to optimal levels.  The struggle is real but you don’t need to blame the aging process or accept your odd health mysteries as your new “normal”.
    In my long intro- I dove into HRV, vagal nerve and the gut-brain connection for healing.  Read more on my website here.

    Episode #424: Dr. Lisa Olszewski on how to get your body and vibrant self back again!

    Episode #424: Dr. Lisa Olszewski on how to get your body and vibrant self back again!

    Debbie and Dr. Lisa go deep today on their WHY, Passion, Purpose and Mission!  
    Dr. Lisa is on a mission to make healthy living simple!
    Why?
    "I've seen too many people get overwhelmed with making healthy changes in their life, or they follow some "guru" only to tank their health. (My own personal story-- I was doing everything "right" Cross fitting 5 days a week, eating keto paleo, and struggling to be a size 12-14. I felt judged, especially by my patients.
    "In 2016 I jumped head first into Intermittent Fasting, following the male bloggers. I did it super strict-- I lost weight, but I lost my health. I was finally "skinny and sexy" in the worlds eyes, but my health was gone-- exhausted, hormones tanked, lost hair by the handfuls. And when I searched for answers, I was only told I was doing it wrong by the male bloggers. I went back to my books and realized that women must do things differently."
    We chat about our lessons learned and how we can help other people avoid going through what we had happen to us- 
    What is your WHY? How do you lose and find your vibrant self again? We talk intermittent fasting (women vs. men) Tracking and biohacking your body... ketones, resting heart rate, sleep, etc. UPCOMING EVENTS

    Episode #423: Dr. Melanie on SIBO and The Intuitive Edge

    Dr. Melanie, N.D. joins me on part one of two podcast episodes today!  We talk about all things SIBO and then go down a rabbit hole on intuitive health!
    What is SIBO?
    According to the Mayo Clinic- "Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) occurs when there is an abnormal increase in the overall bacterial population in the small intestine — particularly types of bacteria not commonly found in that part of the digestive tract."
    What are signs and symptoms of SIBO?
    How to test for SIBO?
    Who is Dr. Melanie?
    "After having gut health and weight problems over half my life, I use my naturopathic expertise and epigenetic intuition to help people understand their bodies and lives better to take part in their own rescue and receive the precise care that they need.
    "My why is all about epigenetics. I was raised in SE Alaska on a pristine diet and active lifestyle yet my gut microbiome imbalance lead to obesity.

    Episode #422 with Dr. Amie Hornaman on all things THYROID

    Episode #422 with Dr. Amie Hornaman on all things THYROID

    Today I had a super fun chat with my new friend Amie Hornaman on all things thyroid!  I love chatting with like minded individuals who are on a mission to help us all GET HEALTHY and realize we can take ownership of our health to improve the aging process!  As I say daily, I am on a mission to live my best life in my second half of living life!  Somehow I turn 5-0 this November 5th, after being “35” for 15 years!  As I reach this new age, I am going to e sharing my thoughts and lessons learned with you as well – as we know that life is not a race, it is a journey!
    AMIE’S PASSION, PURPOSE AND MISSION:  What is your WHY?
    I'm on a mission to optimize thyroid patients around the world and give them their lives back using scientific elements of nutrition and functional medicine. After my own experience of insufferable symptoms, gaining 20+ lbs. while prepping for a figure competition followed by misdiagnoses and improper treatment, I set out to help others who I KNEW were going through the same set of frustrations and who were on the same medical roller coaster.
    Amie Hornaman DCN, MsN, CFMP is a leading certified functional-medicine expert on a mission to optimize thyroid patients around the world and give them their lives back using scientific elements of nutrition and functional medicine. After her own experience of insufferable symptoms, misdiagnoses and improper treatment, Amie set out to help others who she KNEW were going through the same set of frustrations and who were on the same medical roller coaster.
    She consults people around the world via telehealth/virtual appointments beginning with in depth 90- minute consultations addressing everything from lab values to nutrition to lifestyle. She specializes in clinically investigating underlying factors of chronic disease and customizing health programs for thyroid issues, autoimmune conditions, hormonal dysfunctions, digestive disorders, and brain problems.
    With a focus on optimizing thyroid function and thus optimizing her patients, Amie looks at each person as a unique individual and not JUST a lab value. She examines all factors that tie into thyroid dysfunction and thyroid symptoms and treats the person from top to bottom to give them their lives back.
    We discuss all thing THYROID Health and CHRONIC Stress- CHRONIC FATIGUE!
    How do you actually OPTIMIZE your thyroid? Why diagnosing/treating thyroid patients on TSH alone is an injustice. What does it mean to be OPTIMAL and not just "normal"? How does CHRONIC Stress impact our Thyroid – and how would that dysfunction impact our ability to BURN FAT, improve athletic performance or achieve performance gains and the aging process- longevity? Optimal ranges and what insights the results provide to figure out the WHY and How to regain health to be fit and healthy from inside out. Why we need to get the full panel to see the entire pictures- plus what other labs would you suggest? What is included in a full thyroid panel?  What we should ask our Doctors to test (get paid by insurance when you can!) and how the results correlate to other imbalances or dysfunctions – clues. WHY do women need to do more strength training and less chronic cardio!  UPCOMING EVENTS:
