    Pellets, Peptides, & Patient Centered Care

    Pellets, Peptides, & Patient Centered Care

    Episode Summary:
    Have you ever heard of peptides or pellets? If yes, you will enjoy this episode. If you no, then this is the opportunity to listen and learn more from Matthew Moody, which will be helpful to you either way.
    Taking the natural approach to health requires that we begin by recognizing the body has the ability to make its own peptides. They are short protein chains of amino acids.
    Peptides serve your body's most important and necessary processes, such as digestion, how your body uses energy from the food you eat, helps indicate how hungry you feel, how your hormones work, and cell movement. Peptide hormones and neuropeptides are the fundamental signaling molecules that mediate cell-cell communication.
    Pellets have become an innovative custom-compounded therapy used for symptoms that are generated from a hormone imbalance. On this episode of YOUNGER you will learn the importance of top-quality sources certain healthcare practitioners use which can significantly help a patient save money and more importantly, provide the best, efficient outcome for the patient.
    Listen and learn from Matthew. Let Dr. Robyn help you find out if these therapies are a good option for you to live an improved, and vital life of regenerative.

    Could it be your Thyroid?

    Could it be your Thyroid?

    Episode Summary:
    The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland that sits low on the front of the neck, along the front of the windpipe. The thyroid has two side lobes, connected by a bridge in the middle—picture the shape of a butterfly.
    On my next YOUNGER podcast episode called, “Could It Be Your Thyroid?” we explain how Thyroid issues can be under diagnosed, what Thyroid Lab Tests to ask request from your practitioner, and the best ways you can supplement your body specifically for a healthy Thyroid.
    We know how difficult it is to determine if you have a thyroid disease, this is mainly because the symptoms are similar to many other health problems. Many doctors simply don’t have the time to discuss symptoms with patients and sort out the cause of their complaints.
    If you’re trying to talk to your health professional about your thyroid worries and they aren’t taking you seriously, seek a second opinion, and be your own advocate. Speak up!
    Dr. Christi Alsop is our Hashimoto’s thyroiditis expert practitioner at Santa Fe Soul Center for Regenerative Medicine.  Our team is here for you so make sure when you call us, we can schedule a time to help you gain insights related to a regenerative lifestyle and more.

    Slow Aging Inside and Out with Food-Derived Spermidine

    Slow Aging Inside and Out with Food-Derived Spermidine

    Episode Summary:
    On my next YOUNGER podcast episode, I interview the founder of Oxford-HealthSpan, a company that is now producing a high-quality spermidine called Primaeadine®.
    Many health practitioners are learning more spermidine. You will learn how it is a naturally-occurring and potent polyamine (a kind of protein) known for inducing autophagy, the body's cellular renewal and recycling process. It also inhibits 9 of the 12 Hallmarks of Aging, the paths down which we age.
    Oxford-HealthSpan is backed by leading longevity experts, to produce products formulated with the oversight of internationally recognized longevity scientists and doctors, including Oxford University Emeritus Professor of Physiology, Denis Noble and Immunology Professor and Autophagy Expert, Katja Simon, "Best in Medicine" Longevity Doctor and Author of ‘The Kaufmann Anti-Aging Protocol’, Dr. Sandy Kaufmann, Celebrity Anti-Aging Doctor and Psychoneuroimmunologist, Dr. Olivia Lesslar, and Head of the UK's first-of-its-kind Space Innovation Lab and Autophagy Researcher, Dr. Ghada Alsaleh, among others.
    Guest Bio:
    Leslie Kenny, is the founder of Oxford HealthSpan. She is an Oxford based entrepreneur born in California and a graduate of Berkeley and Harvard Business School.
    In her 30s, her life changed dramatically when she was diagnosed with an array of autoimmune conditions - lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and hypothyroidism. Her doctors told her there was no cure and that they could only be managed with strong immunosuppressants.
    This didn't sit right with her. Coming from a Taiwanese background, she was raised with the mentality that its best to work with your body’s innate wisdom to heal itself. Why would she suppress her immune system rather than support it in its natural abilities?
    On a quest to revive her own health, she went back to school at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in NYC. Her passion for health optimization grew and her career took an interesting and unexpected turn when she moved to Oxford and began working with Oxford University scientists and doctors.
    Key Takeaways:
    ·      The science behind spermidine
    ·      Synthetic or not
    ·      Clean ingredients and whole-plant derived spermidine
    ·      3rd Party lab testing
    ·      Who benefits
    ·      Suggested dosage
    ·      What to expect
    ·      Foods highest in spermidine
    ·      Natural solution not a medical treatment
    ·      Quality spermidine supplements
    ·      What do health practitioners know
    ·      Where can I purchase Primaeadine®

    Quotes:
    “2/3 of the spermidine found in the human body is produced endogenously, or in the body, by the gut microbiota and various tissues. The final 1/3 is found exogenously, or externally, in the food that we eat.”
    “As we age, our body's ability to produce it declines. To restore youthful levels of spermidine, we have to look externally. Otherwise, our cells' ability to trigger autophagy will continue to decline and the aging pathways will progress.”

    Optimizing Your Lymphatic System

    Optimizing Your Lymphatic System

    Episode Summary:
    According to Cancer Research UK, this works because, “as the blood circulates around the body, fluid leaks out from the blood vessels unto the body tissues. This fluid carries food to the cells and bathes the body tissues to form tissue fluid. The fluid then collects waste products, bacteria, and damaged cells, as well as any cancer cells if present. This fluid then drains into the lymph system. The lymph then flows through the lymph vessels into the lymph glands, which filter out any bacteria and damaged cells.”
    Once filtered, the lymph leaves the glands and moves into larger lymphatic vessels to the thoracic duct at the base of the neck. Lymph is then released back into the bloodstream, free of any harmful infection or bacteria.
    The lymphatic system also helps to maintain fluid balance within the body.
    “Lymph contains a high number of white blood cells called lymphocytes that work to target and destroy damaged or abnormal cells from the body.”
