    Today we discuss the GI MAP test with Dr. Amy.
    Are you trying to do all the "right" things but you are still struggling to feel, look and perform your best? Do you want to get your body and VIBRANT self back again?
    Well then you may be interested in listening into my talk with Dr. Amy Rolfsen of the about the testing and not guessing what is actually going on "under the hood" with lab test as the GI Map by Diagnostic Solutions Lab.

She is on the medical education team at Diagnostic Solutions Lab, where she helps clinicians navigate the intricacies of the GI MAP test daily.

    Interesting study on how meditation can improve your health!
    “Psychological stress typically triggers a fight-or-flight response, prompting corticotropin-releasing hormone and catecholamine production in various parts of the body, which ultimately disturbs the microbiota. In the absence of stress, a healthy microbiota produces short-chain fatty acids that exert anti-inflammatory and antitumor effects. During stress, an altered gut microbial population affects the regulation of neurotransmitters mediated by the microbiome and gut barrier function. Meditation helps regulate the stress response, thereby suppressing chronic inflammation states and maintaining a healthy gut-barrier function. Conclusions • The current research team recommends the integration of meditation into conventional health care and wellness models. Concurrently, studies to explore th

    Episode #383 with Health Detective Ryan Monahan

    Episode #383 with Health Detective Ryan Monahan

    Today Debbie talks shop with another FDN Practitioner and mentor, Ryan Monahan.
    Ryan Monahan is a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P), clinical advisor for the medical director program at FDN, and certified Autoimmune Protocol Coach with a passion for uncovering hidden stressors that contribute to thyroid disease. Ryan spent over 10 years visiting more than 40 health professionals to find answers to his chronic health complaints until being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s in 2012. Since then, his mission has been to change the dialogue about chronic disease towards a holistic, functional approach.
    With the help of cutting edge functional lab work, Ryan helps his clients to identify the true root causes of their primary health challenges so that they can stop wasting time and resources, and start living their best life.
    Typically, his clients are those who have struggled with finding relief from their autoimmune symptoms. Oftentimes, they feel that they’ve “tried everything”, and that traditional medicine hasn’t served them. In his experience, there is a better way.
    What is your passion, purpose and mission.
    I spent over 10 years visiting more than 40 health professionals to find answers to my chronic health complaints until being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s in 2012. Since then, my mission has been to change the dialogue about chronic disease towards a holistic, functional approach while helping others restore their health to normal function.

    During those 10 years, unbeknownst to me, I was living in an extremely house in north Georgia, and was actually diagnosed with Hashimoto's while living in that house. I'm convinced that mold played a big role in tipping the scales of Metabolic Chaos towards developing an autoimmune condition!

    My mission is ultimately to become the person that I wish I had helping ME when I was at rock bottom with chronic illness.

    We talk about about the links between Hashimoto's and mold illness  - Part one of two episodes!

    Episode #382 The Guy Gone Keto- Thom King

    Episode #382 The Guy Gone Keto- Thom King

    Todays guest on The Low Carb Athlete podcast is with Thom King … a “Guy Gone Keto”!
    Thomas J. King is not your typical CEO.
    Part CEO, part personal development wonk, and part biohacker info geek, King is a self-confessed serial entrepreneur. While his favorite book list contains many success-oriented and personal-development classics, the classic definition of achieving success (e.g. make a lot of money) is not what inspires or motivates King. He follows more of a “you aren’t doing well unless you’re also doing some good” line of thinking. King’s company has been built around the simple principle of “do the right thing.”

    In 2017 King Published the book Guy Gone Keto… You’ve tried countless diet plans, but the weight you lose keeps coming back. The truth is dieting is always going to fail unless you’re 100 percent committed to a beneficial lifestyle change. King’s Guy Gone Keto can guide you to your goal of shaping up, staying healthy, losing weight, and keeping it off by burning fats instead of sugars. Thom King always struggled with his weight before adopting a ketogenic lifestyle. In Guy Gone Keto he details how perseverance and a high-fat, low-carb diet enabled him to drop five waist sizes in a single year. His essential wellness program includes tips for reading and understanding food labels, supportive techniques to make you feel capable and empowered, as well as tasty recipes and easy-to- follow meal plans that will keep you fit and healthy for life. Thom did it, and you can too. Dedicate yourself to going keto, and become who you really want to be.
     
    Thom and Debbie have a conversation on making lifestyle change and the benefits of a ketogenic lifestyle.

    • What motivated you to go keto?
    • Why did you create the Guy Gone Keto
    condiments? How are they different/unique?
    • How is the GGK project about “giving back” to the community?
    • What is KetoseSweet+ and how is it beneficial?
    • What’s next? What fun plans do you have for GGK
     
    We are preparing to launch all new packaging of the Guy Gone Keto condiments which includes 2 new savory products as well as a line of dessert products. And the newest additions which are the Guy Gone Keto Cocktail mixers. All of these products are no sugar added, natural, gluten free and keto friendly.  Icon is preparing to launch a comprehensive offering of no sugar added chocolate products in chips & enrobing chocolate in dark chocolate, white chocolate, toasted marshmallow and other exciting new flavors. Unlimited possibilities for food manufacturers with cookies, bars, confections and frozen desserts in the low card and no sugar added categories.  We are working with so many exciting an innovative customers through Icon Foods that we have pleasure of developing custom sweetening solutions for. We love being able to be a part of promoting health and wellness, eradicating refined sugar and growing an awareness of the dangers of metabolic disease.  We are excited to explore virtual opportunities to connect with potential customers and develop business as well as meet our fellow food manufacturers and to continue to grow our customer relationships and stay connected during the challenges of COVID19.

    Episode #381: Nicole and Sunlighten Saunas

    Episode #381: Nicole and Sunlighten Saunas

    Nicole is back on the podcast today to share the benefits of near, mid and far infrared heat as well as different types of saunas. Nicole does work for Sunlighten Saunas and is a nutritionist.
    Nicole has a passion for helping others through education, consulting & training to both heal, improve and preserve health and wellness. She specializes in scientific based yet holistic approaches to healing and life balance. She is committed offering cutting edge wellness services that empower clients to reach their health goals quickly.

    If you are curious about ordering a Sunlighten Infrared Sauna - use my code to SAVE $200 and free shipping with Lowcarbathlete or Debbie Potts or click here to save $200!
    Some of my favorite tricks before and after my Infrared Sauna use include Vibrant Blue Oils before then afterwards take my GI Detox supplement or drink Bentonite Clay in water with sea salt or Ancient Mineral drops.
    The Vibrant Blue Oils Liver blend would be great before a sauna. You might use a small amount (1 drop) and dilute a bit, ideally with castor oil over the liver as the sauna can super charge the oils. The Vibrant Blue Oils Parasympathetic and Lymph (also dilute Lymph) with sauna are also good combinations.


    More info here -https://www.sunlighten.com/infrared-sauna-health-benefits/immunity
    1.  Infrared therapy stimulates the circulatory system, causing the heart to beat more vigorously and blood vessels to dilate, which help cleanse the circulatory system and more fully oxygenate the body’s cells.
    2.  Better blood circulation means more toxins flow from the cellular level to the skin’s surface to improve cell health, aid in muscle recovery and strengthen the immune system by raising core body temperature.
    3.  "Raising core body temperature is key. Although Sunlighten saunas heat you up differently than a fever, the increased body temperature provides the same benefits, including white blood cell and T-cell production to ward off viruses.
    4.  Sunlighten saunas are the only ones to have been proven to raise core body temperature by 3 degrees."
