    S2E33 - Step 3 & 4 in the Order of Healing: Gut & Liver

    S2E33 - Step 3 & 4 in the Order of Healing: Gut & Liver

    Show summary: “You have to eat the right materials in order to heal your body. Even though there is so much deep science, you can do it. It’s just a willingness to do it.”


    Just over a month ago, we introduced the first and second steps in the Order of Healing: Mindset & Mitochondria.


    Today, we discuss steps 3 and 4 in the Order of Healing: Gut & Liver.


    It is no mystery how important the gut is in our overall health and healing. After all, the gut and the lining of your intestines act as the border between the food you eat and your immune system.


    The process of breaking down nutrients starts within your gut. And so the repair your body needs starts within your gut. 


    On the other hand, the liver may be undervalued and unrecognized whenever you think about your health. But it is just as important. The liver is closely connected to your gut and digestion. It plays a fundamental role in creating hormones and regulating blood sugar and cholesterol.


    In this episode, we dive deep into the science of the roles your gut and liver play in your health healing. 


    Healing happens, and we invite you to become the experts because it is one of the most empowering tools you can utilize for your healing journey.



    Exceptional Highlights:


    To heal your autoimmunity, brain fog, and fatigue, you have to heal your gut.It’s important to know the whys and hows of healing protocol so you can stick with the process longer.The highest concentrations of mitochondria are in the brain and liver because they are that important.


    Show Highlights:


    What are the benefits of healing the gut?


    Juanique 3:29


    We have to heal our gut in order to heal autoimmunity, brain fog, fatigue, thyroid, anxiety, depression, PCOS, inflammation, and immune dysfunction.

    What are the symptoms of gut issues?


    Juanique 10:24


    You have to look out for bloating, gassiness, and burping. Questions to consider: does your meal kind of sit in your stomach for an hour or two? Do you feel heavy? Bloating and gassiness shouldn’t be normalized.

    Why does bloating and gassiness happen?


    Juanique: 17:02


    You’re eating food that is rotting in your gut. Bloating and gassiness are a sign of inflammation. And bad bacteria thrive in inflammation.

    Sugar is highly inflammatory


    Juanique: 25:01


    Sugar is highly inflammatory not only in the gut but also in the liver. It releases aldehydes that are toxic to your body.

    Healthy foods for liver


    Juanique: 45:58


    Eat vegetables, and food with lots of fiber, protein, and antioxidants.

    S2E32 - Biohack Your Way to Healing

    S2E32 - Biohack Your Way to Healing

    Show Summary: “Bioregulators can trigger the body’s healing mechanisms to reverse biological aging.”


    It’s a known fact that our bodies can cleanse and heal themselves. But did you know exactly how the mechanisms of our body do just that? 


    Peptides and Bioregulator Peptides are types of small proteins and strings of amino acids that help heal and rejuvenate our DNA.


    In this episode of the Gutsy Health Podcast, Nathalie Niddam dishes out Peptide Therapy and Bioregulators, and how these helpful compounds trigger not only our body’s natural healing mechanism but also reverse our biological aging. 


    Nathalie is a Certified Holistic Nutritionist and Epigenetic Coach whose passion is to guide people on how these strings of amino acids can help decrease inflammation, aid weight loss, and potentially reverse our natural aging. 


    As we go along, we dive deeper into the science of Peptide Therapy and how Bioregulators cross through our nuclear membrane to upregulate proteins in our bodies.


    Peptide Therapy is a subject not yet known to many people. But worry not! We are here to guide you all the way so you too can become a citizen scientist, your self-healing advocate, and the CEO of your body and healing process. 



    Exceptional Highlights:


    Peptides and Bioregulator Peptides are proteins and strings of small amino acids that could penetrate our nuclear cells and help upregulate our DNA.Upregulating our DNA is known as rejuvenating and restoring the functions of tissues.One of its (Peptides) functions is to restore the telomere length on DNA.


    Show Highlights:


    How to administer Bioregulators?


    Nathalie Niddam 9:50


    Bioregulators naturally occur in food. And the bioregulator supplements can be taken orally because they are so small and our body has a mechanism to recognize them.

    What organs can benefit from Bioregulators?


    Nathalie Niddam 13:12
    Bioregulators can target and improve the health of specific organs such as the liver, pancreas, lungs, muscles, and bone marrow.

    What is the appropriate prescription for Bioregulators?


    Nathalie Niddam 19:16


    The answer is evolving. The oral bioregulators are classified as nutritional supplements because they’re essentially food.

    S2E31 - The 5 Pillars of Health

    S2E31 - The 5 Pillars of Health

    Show Summary: “To get healthy and stay healthy, you’ve got to be your own investigator. You’ve got to be inquisitive.”


    Many “healthy food” products in supermarkets are marketed as whole and organic food. They claim that they have anti-inflammatory ingredients and are suitable for your heart and blood sugar. 


    A couple of hundred years ago, people didn't die from diseases such as type 2 diabetes, dementia, and heart attacks. And this is because we weren’t eating the types of highly processed food that we eat now. 


    So, how can you make sure that you’re truly getting the products that are good for you?


    In this episode, Dr. Thomas Hemingway laid down the 5 simple pillars of health practices you can learn from to take care of your body. His holistic health philosophy is backed by numerous studies and one that many of you are already familiar with.


    Dr. Hemingway believes that health and wellness are sustainable by addressing the root cause of the problem, long before symptoms start to manifest.


    We invite you to listen to Episode 31 of the Gutsy Health Podcast and make sure to invite all your loved ones. Now is the time to take charge in making significant decisions that promote healthy living!

    90% percent of your genetic diseases can be prevented by changing your lifestyle.Most food that we buy in supermarkets is marketed as healthy food. But they’re not actually healthy.The five pillars of health are FOOD, MOVEMENT, STRESS, SLEEP, and GUT HEALTH.

    Show Highlights:


    Food is medicine


    Dr. Thomas 6:51


    Food is the best medicine or it can be a slow poison. One of the biggest levers that we have is treating food as the powerful medicine it can be.

    Plant-based oils


    Dr. Thomas 9:14


    Giant corporations funded the American Heart Association. They got us to believe that man-made plant-based oils are healthier for us than what we’ve been eating for millennia. 

    Why is sleep important?


    Dr. Thomas 23:47


    Sleep enables our brain to flush all the toxins away. If these toxins are built up over time, they can cause chronic inflammation the same way our joints start to ache.

    S2E30 - The Good, the Bad, and the Health Benefits of Olive Oil

    S2E30 - The Good, the Bad, and the Health Benefits of Olive Oil

    Show Summary: “Olive oils must be single-origin. The land where the olive trees grow should be non-invasive, and the fruits must be hand-picked so as not to damage the quality in the process.”


    You've all heard olive oil is probably the holy grail among oils. Not only does it taste good but it's also been proven many times that it has a lot of health benefits. Now, the question is how certain are you that you're getting the good quality ones - considering many large olive oil brands are out there just for profit?


    How can you distinguish between virgin and extra virgin olive oil? What are the tell-tale signs that the bottles displayed in grocery stores came from multi-sourced locations? How does a clear olive oil bottle affect its overall quality?


    It seems like a lot of stuff to consider just to consume oil, doesn't it?


    But when it comes to our health, we should always be mindful of the quality of products that we consume. A little research goes a long way too.


    That’s why we're thrilled to be joined by Tony Kasandrinos, the founder and CEO of Kasandrinos Olive Oil. In this episode, we discuss the history of their olive oil which originated in Greece. He also gave us some advice on how to spot a good quality product in our nearest grocery stores and the health benefits that come from it.


    So please join us as we discover facts about one of our favorite and most important ingredients in our kitchen, and begin to be a positive healthy influence among your friends and family!

    Exceptional Highlights:


    The olive oil industry has become one of the largest health and food scams in the past years.Aside from vitamin E, olive oil is packed with polyphenols and antioxidants that are good for our skin, cells, brain, and heart. Most large olive oil companies source their ingredients from different countries, which creates a less quality product.Show Highlights:


    What’s the problem in the olive oil industry?


    Tony 3:27


    The vast majority of olive oils are not organic and the fruits are sprayed with pesticides. At the same time, you can have high-quality olive oil that was produced, but due to its distribution process and by the time it gets into consumers’ households, its freshness degrades over time.

    Preserving the quality directly from the source


    Tony 10:42


    We want to get Kasandrinos Olive Oil to the customer as soon as we can because that’s what olive oil should taste like.

    What’s the difference between virgin olive oil and extra virgin olive oil?


    Tony 12:00


    When a chemical analysis or acidity test is done, anything above point A is virgin olive oil, and anything below is extra virgin olive oil. It can be tested out the day it’s pressed, but the acidity level rises over time.Sponsor Link:

    S2E29 - How to Become Proactive in Preventing Osteoporosis

    S2E29 - How to Become Proactive in Preventing Osteoporosis

    Show Summary: “We want to prevent Osteopenia and Osteoporosis. It’s easier to slow down and prevent bone loss than to build what’s lost.”


    Osteoporosis is commonly known to affect only women in their forties to sixties, but did you know that it could start at an earlier age? 


    Studies have shown that approximately 10 million Americans have Osteoporosis, and not only women but men can also suffer from it. It also shows that one in two women and one in four men will break a bone in their lifetime because of low bone density.


    Oftentimes, we hear about this condition when people have already been diagnosed and are suffering - only then do they start taking medications, and supplements, and changing their diet and exercise. But it shouldn’t be the only way. And believe us when we say that there are lots of different ways we can prevent Osteoporosis from happening.


    Bone Coach™ Kevin Ellis is a Forbes-featured certified Integrated Nutrition Health Coach, and he’s here to talk to us about what causes Osteoporosis, the tests we can take to check our bone density status, and what we can do to proactively prevent Osteoporosis from happening. 


    Listen to the newest episode of the Gutsy Health Podcast and be the best advocate of yourself for your healing journey.

    What causes Osteoporosis?


    Kevin Ellis 13:59


    Primary Osteoporosis is related to a decrease in estrogen. Secondary Osteoporosis occurs as a result of bone loss, behaviors, disorders, diseases, medications, and other conditions.Get the MOST COMFORTABLE SLEEP YOU NEED!

    How to know if we have Osteoporosis?


    Kevin Ellis 8:18


    Through a bone density scanner called DEXA Scan. It is a painless test like an X-ray, but it has much lower levels of radiation.

    What are the symptoms of Osteoporosis?


    Kevin Ellis 12:42


    Osteoporosis is a silent condition and does not manifest in pain unless we get a bone fracture. Sponsor Link:

    S2E28 - How To Get Your Grocery Bill Under Control

    S2E28 - How To Get Your Grocery Bill Under Control

    Show Summary: “Eating healthy: let’s pop the myth that it’s expensive and hard. Inexpensive healthy meals can be done right with proper skills and knowledge.”


    Healthy habits can begin with the food that we eat. And sometimes, we’re daunted by the tremendous amount of tasks before us just to achieve our health goals.


    What kind of food should we buy? Where can we access inexpensive organic fruits and vegetables? Are healthy meals complicated to make?


    One way or another, we’ve asked ourselves these questions many times, and more often than not, these questions can be intimidating - and then we start to doubt ourselves.


    Worry not! Episode 28 of the Gutsy Health Podcast is here to lay down all the recommendations for you to become a meal planning Pro. And it doesn’t have to be tricky. It doesn’t take a lot of work either. You don’t necessarily have to be a Michelin Star chef to create sumptuous and healthy meals for you and your family.


    In this episode, we emphasize the importance of meal planning and food prepping, and that leftovers are more nutrient-dense than what we get from big fast-food restaurants. I guarantee you that this will make your meal planning a lot easier and hassle-free!


    Tune in to this episode and become an advocate of healthy healing for you and your family. Because shifting away from the mindset that eating healthy is time-consuming and that it takes a lot of work may seem unthinkable but this is the best way to nurture, nourish, and heal our bodies.

    Exceptional Highlights:


    Information and knowledge about healthy eating are pointless without proper implementation.Changing your health isn’t just about information: it’s ingraining it in your mind, body, and soulEating is a habit. We need to break old habits in order to create new healthy ones.

    Changing old habits


    Juanique 9:10


    You need to get out of your way to prioritize eating healthy and make a habit of it, just like how brushing your teeth and showering are part of your daily habits. 


    Inexpensive healthy food


    Gina 23:04


    The sandwiches that we pick up in coffee shops may seem reasonably priced. But if we replace it with an omelet with spinach and avocado, we will find that those ingredients are much cheaper and healthier than those store-bought sandwiches.Get the MOST COMFORTABLE SLEEP YOU NEED!

    How is eating inexpensive healthy food related to our health?


    Juanique 24:57


    The amount and effort it takes for us to prepare organic and healthy meals are a lot cheaper than when we get hospitalized and under medications because of an illness that resulted from our neglect of food consumption.

Helpful but very negative and cynical

I love the information they share and the guest speakers. But there tends to be a very negative undertone that could cause fear. Be sure to balance this out with something positive
