    #327: Gut Check! The probiotic strain that turns your gut into an antioxidant factory with Tina Andersen

    #327: Gut Check! The probiotic strain that turns your gut into an antioxidant factory with Tina Andersen

    Are all probiotics created equal? We find out in today’s episode with returning guest, Tina Andersen. Formerly an attorney working in the pharmaceutical field for 15 years, Tina found herself becoming more and more disillusioned with the pharmaceutical industry. After seeing the overprescribing of medications, the terrible side effects people were experiencing, and the amount of money being made keeping people sick, Tina realized she had to make a change. At the same time, she found herself living an increasingly holistic lifestyle. She and her husband, Billy were avoiding antibiotics for both themselves and their three children, eliminating over-the-counter medications, living an active lifestyle, and eating more whole, real foods. Tina realized that the old adage was true, “All disease begins in the gut.” Every time we eat or drink or expose ourselves to chemicals, toxins and hormones, we are either feeding disease or fighting it! With her newfound knowledge, Tina went on a mission to help others heal their guts holistically and choose probiotics over pharmaceuticals.
     
    She learned quickly that in order to rebalance your gut, you need to take a daily probiotic that actually works, meaning the friendly bacteria (probiotics) win out the every day battle over the bad bacteria - AND actually stay alive once it hits your gut, (not just in the fridge.) What Tina discovered was that the majority of probiotics on the market simply aren’t working, they are not natural, and they are not alive. Tina and Billy worked closely with Dr. Simon Cutting, a world-renowned probiotic expert at London University Royal Holloway, to gain access to the most widely studied and used probiotic strains in the world. That's when Just Thrive Probiotic & Antioxidant was born!
     
    Think of your gut like a garden. When you add Just Thrive® Probiotic, you’re enabling your gut to bloom into a beautiful garden of good, healthy bacteria! These probiotic strains go in like little gardeners, removing the weeds (bad bacteria and pathogens) and actively manage the soil by fertilizing it with potent and necessary antioxidants. In the end, you have a beautiful, healthy garden of gut health that makes the rest of your body happy, from the inside out.

    Quotables:
    “We have got to start not being so fearful or stressed out in order to protect our gut microbiome and therefore, protect our immune system.”
    – Tina Andersen
     
    “To be a good probiotic it needs to be alive. The thing is, it doesn’t need to be alive in the refrigerator or at the health food store. It needs to be alive when it’s in your intestines.”
    – Tina Andersen
     
    “It’s hard to find any disease that’s not associated with an imbalanced gut. And so, people may go to the product because they have gas or are bloated. But the side effects may include more energy, better weight

    Quotables:
    “The biggest problem I have is most people can’t believe the results because they’re so used to having to struggle to try to get themselves to do these behaviors that I’m teaching them to do unconsciously.”
    – Brittany Watkins
    “Food is one the hardest addictions because we have to eat!”
    – Brittany Watkins
    “A lot of people feel like if they change their body they’ll lose that connection with their friends, family, maybe sister or mom will be jealous or upset, or they will feel like they won’t fit in any more.” 
    – Brittany Watkins
    “I truly believe that we have soul contracts with our wounders and once we get to a place where we heal and learn completely, the contract breaks and they no longer have to be that person for us.”
    – Brittany Watkins
    “This is one of the most beautiful things about food and addiction is that the food will actually show you what needs to be healed in your life in order to put you on the path that you’re meant to be on.”

    The Gupta Program: Why Brain Retraining Is the Key to Healing Chronic Health Conditions with Ashok Gupta
     
    We know that the body is designed to heal itself when given the tools that it needs to do so. But, how do we trigger that healing response in the brain? 
     
    Ashok Gupta has the answer. Ashok healed himself of ME/CFS (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) after studying the neurology of illness. Because of the results he saw on himself, Ashok was inspired to do more. He went on to publish several medical papers, and then set up a global e-clinic specializing in the treatment of ME, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Multiple Chemical Sensitivities and Associated Conditions which has given thousands of people their lives back by re-training their brain.
     
    The Gupta Program Brain Retraining™ Is A Powerful Revolutionary Neuroplasticity & Holistic Health Program For Chronic Conditions. With this program, Ashok has drawn from many areas of coaching and therapy, including NLP, Meditation, Timeline Therapy, Breathwork, Parts therapy, Visualisation, Inner-Child work, and many more. We fit these tools under the banner of "Amygdala and Insula Retraining", or AIR Techniques.
