    482: Doctors Gone Rogue 1: Celebrating the Change-Makers in Naturopathy, Holistic Veterinary Care, & Traditional Chinese Medicine

    Today we celebrate the innovators, the mavericks, and the rebels who went rogue. 
    In the words of Steve Jobs, “Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
    That iconic quote by Steve Jobs perfectly captures the essence of our new limited series, "Doctors Gone Rogue." These are the trailblazers who saw beyond the confines of traditional medicine. They believed in the body’s incredible ability to heal itself when given the right tools and environment.

    Dr. Edward Group
    Meet Dr. Edward Group, a chemist on the path to becoming a heart surgeon who realized that allopathic medicine treated symptoms but not the root cause. After losing both parents to cancer, he shifted his focus to holistic health, founding Global Healing to help people heal naturally.

Now, he's improving and extending the lives of pets other vets had given up on.

    480: Why Sickness is Good Business and The History of Healthcare (Red Pill Revolution Part 3)

    480: Why Sickness is Good Business and The History of Healthcare (Red Pill Revolution Part 3)

    In the last two episodes of Food Heals, we introduced you to Dr. Jeremy Ayres and John Gusty, the authors of The Red Pill Revolution: Exposing The Illusion and Hidden Agendas. Today, you'll hear a reading from Chapter 8 of their book, entitled, "Dis-ease"
    In this episode, you'll learn how even health, one of the most sacred human rights, has been corrupted by the System.
    Ask anyone from any country if people are healthier or sicker than fifty years ago, and the answer is always "Sicker!" Chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes, obesity, cancer, and mental health issues are skyrocketing, even in developing countries adopting modern lifestyles.
    There's no question that modern humanity is getting sicker. This suggests two things: our current way of living is causing more health problems, and modern medicine is not effectively treating chronic conditions. These points are hard to dispute, but could this situation be deliberate?
    Why would anyone want to cause or allow widespread illness? And why offer ineffective medical treatments? The answer lies in the System, which benefits from our sickness. It turns out, sickness is good business.
    Next up, Chapter 8 of The Red Pill Revolution. Get the book on Amazon and join the membership at NaturallyBetter4you.com.

    479: A Natural Treatment for Osteoporosis and Arthritis That Works (Red Pill Revolution Part 2)

    479: A Natural Treatment for Osteoporosis and Arthritis That Works (Red Pill Revolution Part 2)

    In our last episode, we introduced you to Dr. Jeremy Ayres and John Gusty, the brilliant minds behind The Red Pill Revolution: Exposing The Illusion and Hidden Agendas. Today, we delve deeper into their groundbreaking work.
    In this episode, you'll get a sneak peek into the book's powerful content. We start with Chapter One, setting the stage for the revelations that follow. Stick around until the end, where we reveal an all-natural treatment for osteoporosis and arthritis that actually works!
    Why are alcohol and tobacco legal, but psychedelics outlawed? Why are antidepressants handed out like candy? Why is something as addictive as sugar promoted on the “healthy eating” guide?
    We are constantly reminded that our noble leaders and institutions are busy working on solutions. Surely, the scary world of today must give way to a future of peace and prosperity... someday soon!
    But of course, it never happens, does it? New wars are justified, countries are bombed, citizens flee around the world, epidemics and famines come and go, oil is spilled, rainforests are cleared, stocks go up, and all the while people everywhere seem to be getting sicker and weaker.
    The same question always hangs over everything: with all the taxes we pay and all the great advances in technology and learning, why doesn’t it ever seem to get better?
    The most obvious answer must be that a better world was never the intention. If you look carefully, the situation everywhere seems to be getting worse. That can only be deliberate.
    We are told that the world is making progress, but the reality is that it gets better only for a select few. By any sensible measure, the rest of us are constantly slipping further into physical, mental, and spiritual sickness.
    Illness must be part of the plan.
    Enter Dr. Jeremy Ayres and John Gusty, co-authors of The Red Pill Revolution and today's guests on Food Heals. This book may be a hard pill to swallow, but it's a necessary conversation for anyone wishing to sanely navigate the chaotic and predatory culture we all find ourselves in. We all know something is just not right. We all sense the imbalance, injustice, and insanity. But what can we actually do about it? Who and what can be trusted?

We all know something is just not right. We all sense the imbalance, injustice, and insanity. But what can we actually do about it? Who and what can be trusted?
    Most of what is discussed in this book would never make its way into mainstream corporate media. This is not only the problem but also the solution.
    Be prepared to become a very different human being after listening to this episode.

    477: Metabolism Makeover: How Ketones Optimize Metabolic Health with Michael Brandt

    477: Metabolism Makeover: How Ketones Optimize Metabolic Health with Michael Brandt

    What if I told you our metabolism is under attack?
    88% of Americans are “metabolically unhealthy.”
    75% of Americans are overweight or obese.
    34% of Americans are pre-diabetic, and 9.4% are diabetic.
    Metabolism, or the body’s process of converting food into energy, is vital to our health. A strong metabolism can help promote better sleep, control mood, manage weight, and improve energy levels. An unhealthy metabolism can have the opposite effect.
    People who are metabolically unhealthy have less-than-ideal biomarkers, like blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar levels. Chronic diseases, such as diabetes or cardiovascular issues, are linked to poor metabolic health. These conditions are among the leading causes of death in the United States.
    Luckily, there is hope. Enter Ketones.
    Ketones are a natural source of fuel for your body. They are often created when your stored carbs are depleted, triggering your body to convert fat into ketones for fuel. Unlike fats, ketones can cross the blood-brain barrier, allowing ketones to fuel both the brain and the body.
    Compared to other sources of energy like glucose or fat, ketones are a more efficient fuel that can produce more power while using less oxygen.
    Ketone levels can be measured in a number of ways and are a key biomarker to assess metabolic health.
    Ancient humans relied on ketones for fuel, not sugar. But due to modern diets and sedentary lifestyles, we often eat more carbs than we need and store the excess. This prevents our bodies from running on ketones, often leading to reduced energy levels, unwanted weight gain, and chronic metabolic diseases.
    My guest today believes that the best version of yourself starts with good metabolic health—and ketones are the answer. Michael Brandt is the Co-founder of H.V.M.N., who makes the shot, Ketone IQ, a little shot of ketones you can take on a daily basis.
    The advantages of taking ketones include sustained energy, mental clarity, endurance and recovery, weight management, metabolic health, longevity, and more.
