Encore Episode: Metabolism Reset Diet: How to Repair Your Liver and Lose Weight Naturally
Your liver is actually the key to a healthy metabolism.The path to becoming naturally thin isn't as impossible as it may seem. The hidden truth is that your liver is actually the key to a healthy metabolism. When it isn't functioning properly, it loses the ability to burn fuel. An overloaded liver can only store fuel as fat, which slows your metabolism and leads to excess weight gain. Even if you cut out sugar and carbs, you can still struggle with weight loss and high blood sugar. In Dr. Alan Christianson's book, The Metabolism Reset Diet, he provides readers the information they need to reverse damage to the liver in just four weeks. Once your liver regains its ability to manage your metabolism, you'll have fewer food cravings, steady energy levels, better digestion, and a metabolism that works optimally. Listen in this episode from April 2019 as Dr. Christianson joins Dr. Friedman to explain why liver health is so tied to metabolism, as well as how you can achieve optimal liver function to lose weight and get healthy fast.
Encore Episode: Tips To Beat Stress
Dr. Bradley Nelson explains why the best remedies for stress are all about kindness and simplicity.Stress puts our health at risk, damaging our body’s systems and contributing to irritability, anxiety, depression, headaches, insomnia, and a myriad of other diseases and ailments.But, people can disarm the harmful effects of stress naturally and holistically. Dr. Bradley Nelson offers these six tips for beating the stress of daily life. Control what is in you. Eat healthy, live whole foods. The shorter the time from tree to tasting, from ground to gourmet, the more positive energy you will receive. Control what is around you. Stay away from chronically toxic people and situations. Stay off of negative social media. Eliminate clutter, physical and spiritual. Clean lines and open spaces in your living area can provide calmness and serenity. Purge yourself of emotional clutter like trapped emotions. Literally “ground” yourself. This concept is also known as “earthing.” You know that great feeling you have after a day at the beach? That is about more than a day of relaxation. Standing or walking in bare feet in grass, sand, or even on a concrete surface that is immediately above the soil can rid your body of ever-so-damaging negative energy. Embrace joy. As they say, “laughter is the best medicine.” Share random hugs and smiles. Think about all you have to be grateful for and share that gratitude. Keep negative energy at bay with positive thoughts and acts. Slow down and love the little things. Humans have adopted the rat race as a way of life, and it need not be that way. There is nothing and no one more important than YOU. Make sure you have sufficient alone time and use it to enjoy what makes you content. A walk in the woods, smelling fresh-cut grass, watching children play, a day of reading... The possibilities are endless. Listen as Dr. Nelson joins Dr. Friedman to explain why the best remedies for stress are all about kindness and simplicity. He also shares information from his newly expanded and updated book, The Emotion Code.
