    In this episode, Dr. Jockers puts protein lipids and cholesterol in the spotlight. So often, cholesterol places a stigma on people since it is associated with serious health conditions, such as hypertension and heart disease. In reality, cholesterol can either be good or bad, depending on the level we allow it to grow. Familiarize yourself with the different lab works that can assess where your health stands based on your protein lipids and cholesterol ranges. Then work to keep them in that optimal range!
     
    “From a dietary perspective, eating processed foods, sugars, seed oils, toxins, or foods you have autoimmune reactions to, increase cholesterol.”

    The thyroid plays a vital role in the body’s metabolic process. When it fails to function the way it’s supposed to, it affects how food and nutrients are regulated. In more serious cases like hypothyroidism, there are also underlying effects like weight gain, inability to lose weight, fatigue, intolerance to cold temperature, depression, etc. Dr. Jockers talks about thyroid hormone resistance, how it is developed, and the patterns that lead to unhealthy thyroid functions. He shares several at-home tests and lab markers to check for thyroid problems and explains why medical practitioners should never rely on lab tests through the medical ranges ALONE.
     
    “If there is a thyroid issue, most likely it’s actually an issue with the brain, with the liver, with the gut, or all of them.”

    “Dogs are not our whole lives but they make our lives whole.” When Roger Caras said that line, dog lovers like our guest in today’s episode could only nod in agreement. Rodney Habib, a multi-award-winning vlogger, best-selling author of The Forever Dog, and highly acclaimed speaker, shares the sad story that led to the creation of The Dog Cancer Series. This series highlights the indisputable role of the ketogenic diet in addressing the world’s most dreadful condition – cancer. Though it may seem surreal to face the fact that our pets can have cancer too, we all need to live with this reality and ACT ON before it’s too late.

    This is a call for us to start looking inwards at how our emotional turmoils and quality of life are directly impacting the health of our pets.
