Conquering Cravings - How To Master Emotional Eating And Overcome Food Cravings

Show Summary: “When you know yourself, that's where you can find your medicine.”

Do you always feel like eating ice cream when you're alone at home?

Do you long for salty foods when you are stressed?

Do your cravings always show up?

If your answer is YES, it's OK. Many of Gina's clients experience that a lot. Even if they have meal plans to follow, their cravings always show up like a balloon that keeps coming up from underwater, and no matter how hard you push it down, it pops back up again.

Interestingly, cravings are also linked to the inability to experience emotions like boredom, sadness, and loneliness. If you find yourself munching sweets in the middle of the night, even if you're not hungry, it could be that there is an unprocessed emotion deep within you that you have to address.

15 Easy Steps To Create A Healthy Living Environment

“Stop bringing in chemicals that are harmful to you and your family's health. Your home should be clean and safe because it is your SANCTUARY.”

Your home is your safest place. That's where you rest, eat healthy and fun foods, spend time and build dreams with your loved ones. And because of the restrictions caused by the pandemic, sometimes there is no other choice for you but to stay home. But it can be quite alarming to know that even the simple things around your home can give you inflammation and worse, can poison you.

The world runs differently right now, and many things are created to make your life much easier but can destroy your health faster even if you're at home relaxing, like the gadgets you use daily. Devices help you reach people who are far from you, and it automates your activities. Some products help you clean your house but slowly deteriorate your body. And without proper guidance and awareness from the real experts who care, you might get sick without knowing the root cause.

That's why Ryan Blaser, the owner of Test My Home Building Solutions, is back to discuss what EMF is and give you Fifteen easy, actionable, and no-cost ways to protect your family from it. And just by simply sharing this with the people you care about, you can save a life and help us heal the world.

Exceptional Highlight:

  • The problem is, the more effective a pesticide is, the more harmful it is.
  • If you have plastic in your kitchen, get rid of it and reuse glass, wood, stainless steel, and silicone. They are all good options.
  • Practical Avoidance is lowering all the artificial energies that are traveling through our bodies that are affecting the brain, heart & nervous system.

Show Highlights: 

Ways To Protect Yourselves from EMFs

Starting at 7:36

  • Take the time to open up doors and windows, get some cross-ventilation because AC causes high CO2 levels inside the homes.
  • Take off your shoes out of the door. Make it a rule to take off your shoes to prevent bringing in so much nasty stuff from the outside.
  • Ensure you use the vent in your bathroom and not let the moisture condensate in your doors and walls.
  • Ensure you're using the ventilation in your kitchen to prevent creating carbon monoxide whenever you're burning petroleum products.
  • Use good clean products instead of products with high chemical content which are deadly.
  • Prevent using fragrances that have chemicals in them. Learn to love the smell of neutral because that's a healthy smell.
  • Get rid of plastics for cooking because they are toxins, and they can get into your system.
  • Stop using super effective pesticides because they are toxic to your gut biome.
  • Stop using herbicides on the lawn because they are cancerous.
  • Go to your attic, check it once or twice a year and clean it.
  • Turn off your electronic devices when not in use to minimize EMF exposure.
  • When you're sleeping, turn the circuits off to your bedroom.
  • When you use grounding mats, you have to be in a zero electric field.
  • If you can't turn off your devices, make sure to put them from a distance.

Neurological Effects Of Sugar & Insulin

Show Summary: “Give your brain a break, let it be the true hybrid engine that it wants to be, and quit depriving it of this alternative or additional fuel, namely ketones.”

A lot of people have requested for Dr. Benjamin Bikman to be in the podcast again, and he's back with more valuable information that can save you and your family's lives! In the 89th episode, he discussed how glucose could kill and how it triggers different diseases when it goes up. Now, he'll discuss how it could affect the human body's neurological health.

When the brain is hungry, it can cause neurological problems. It's because the brain can't get enough energy from glucose, and there are simply no ketones around to provide the alternative fuel. Sadly, people usually eat sugary & starchy foods that don't have ketones, depriving the brain of what it needs.

Also, reductions in brain glucose use have been detected in those suffering from migraines which are also evident in Epilepsy and Alzheimer's disease. Listen carefully as Dr. Benjamin breaks down the lethal effects of glucose & lack of ketones in the brain. Share this with your friends and family and learn how to protect yourself from neurological illnesses by trimming down your sugar intake.

Exceptional Highlight:

  • If someone's eating french fries that have been fried in soybean oil, they are getting every fat molecule on there because the oil has become an oxidized or a peroxide version of itself.
  • Insulin may take up to three hours or more to come back down to where it was before. If we can never stop eating, we bump it back up again before insulin gets back down to fasting or baseline levels.
  • When ketones are available in the blood, the brain will get 75% of all of its energy from ketones.

Show Highlights: 

Quick Recap: What is Insulin?

Dr. Benjamin 3:52

  • Insulin is a peptide hormone. It is released from our pancreas, and it tells every cell in the body to do something. And every cell in the body will respond to insulin in some way. Its most famous effect is what it does at fat cells and muscle cells, and that is to stimulate the uptake of glucose.


How insulin and sugar affect neurological disorders?

Dr. Benjamin 20:16 

  • When the glucose metabolism rate in people's brains with mild cognitive impairment is measured, it is significantly down. It happens even with the early stages of Alzheimer's disease (even if it's not diagnosed yet), yet we see these detections. We can detect this reduction in glucose use; however, ketone use was normal.

The best and easiest way to take care of your brain

Dr. Benjamin 49:56

  • You don't have to go on some strict ketogenic diet or multi-day fasting. You don't have to be that extreme. Eat a reasonable dinner that isn't an overindulgence. It should have fat, protein, and even carbohydrates, then stop eating after dinner.

Mindset - The First Order of Healing

Show Summary: “When you do the work, and you don't bypass your mindset, your life shifts for the better and you start to channel your inner power”

The Master Your Subconscious Workshop has finally wrapped up. Twenty women learned to channel their inner power and discovered that they could do amazing things and effortlessly heal. The workshop taught them how important mindset is in healing that helped them shift their energy and frequency.

Working on your mindset can be challenging if you do it alone. But it can be easier if you work on it from the inside out instead of outside in. And in this episode, Dr. Elizabeth Rogers, a master healer, and expert in custom holistic health services, shares some simple exercises you can consistently do every day to start manifesting powerful energy and regain control of your life.

Please share this with your family and friends who need emotional healing and gradually discover the higher version of you. And if you want to be a part of The Master Your Subconscious Workshop, watch Juanique's Instagram for an update on the class.

Exceptional Highlight:

  • We are emotional beings and we can't keep bypassing that.
  • The old version of you kept you alive, so thank her/him and let them go.
  • You have to learn how to love yourself. If you fill your love cup, then you can graciously fill other people's love cup. Asking others to fill your cup without you filling it is transactional love, selfish love. 

Show Highlights: 

Dr. Elizabeth Rogers’ story

Dr. Elizabeth 3:01

  • I lived on the receiving end of what mainstream medicine can do to you when you become chronically ill. Fifteen years ago, I ended up getting rushed to the hospital in the morning while I was getting ready for class because I collapsed on my bathroom floor. I was admitted to the hospital because of kidney stones. My surgeon said, "We're gonna blast out your stones." So I had surgery, and ten days later, I was in the hospital, declining, and no one could figure out why.


How perception can shift your energy?

Juanique 14:09

  • You know that feeling when you fall in love with someone, and you're energized? You're so inspired, and you feel like you're floating on clouds. It's not because of that person. It's because of your perception of that person. That was all your energy shifting, and you shifted that energy because of your perception.

How can you shift your energy?

Dr. Elizabeth 19:59

  • Ask yourself these questions:
    • Who would I be if I had blank?
    • What would I do if I already had blank?
    • Then the last question is, how would I feel if I already had blank?

                   You fill in the blank with what feels right to you.

Dental Health - How It Relates To Autoimmune & Other Body Health Issues

Show Summary: “When you improve gut health, you also improve dental health. Adding minerals back to our body helps heal the teeth.”

A beautiful set of teeth makes you more attractive and confident. And dentists have different ways to do that. One of those is dental amalgam or silver fillings. You can also buy toothpaste with high fluoride content everywhere because it can prevent cavities or tooth decay.

However, silver fillings and fluoride may not be the best solution to your tooth problem. Silver fillings have fifty percent mercury which is dangerous to your health, and fluoride makes your bones very brittle. Sadly, tooth decay is not the only dental issue that exists. Mouth structure can also be a dental health problem that can affect your breathing seriously.

In this episode with Dr. Michelle Jorgensen, an author, speaker, teacher, biologic/holistic dentist, and health and wellness provider, you'll find out why malnutrition is a reason for your child's inability to develop healthy teeth. Don't forget to share this with your friends and family for tips on how to understand and take care of your teeth better.

Exceptional Highlight:

  • Unfortunately, Fluoride makes the bones brittle, leading to higher rates of bone fracture.
  • An unhealthy diet can lead to long skinny, narrow faces & noses during growth and developmental changes, making it very difficult to get air into our bodies.
  • The tongue's job is to form the upper jaw. If the tongue is unable to go up because it's tied down to the floor of the mouth, the upper jaw then becomes narrow because it doesn't have the force of the tongue going up and spreading the job.


Show Highlights: 

Dr. Michelle Jorgensen’s story

Dr. Michelle 1:39

  • I was a general dentist, but I was getting worse and worse while I was taking great care of people. MRIs, doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists,  nobody could give me an answer. Until finally, I met another practitioner. He asked me if I had looked into mercury poisoning. He said, "It's the ones that you've been drilling out for the last 15 years with no protection, breathing it all in."

What are dental silver fillings made of?

Dr. Michelle 4:49

  • The silver fillings have 50% percent mercury. If you have one today, it's 50% mercury. Everyone says silver is one of the lowest percentage ingredients, like 20% silver, 50% mercury.

What is Dr. Michelle's opinion on fluoride?

Dr. Michelle 21:01

  • People started using fluoride because they found that societies with higher fluoride in their water suddenly had fewer cavities. But what they don't tell you is it also had an increased incidence of hyperfluorosis, which is this high fluoride level that also affects the bones and makes bones more brittle.

How does malnutrition affect your child's teeth development?

Dr. Michelle 32:22

  • My son's teeth were so messed up when we adopted him. I found out that the maxilla, the upper jaw, is the first bone impacted by malnutrition. So his jaw didn't grow because he didn't have enough nutrition to help it grow.

Insulin, Sugar & Blood Sugar - An Explanation

Show Summary: “When blood sugar stays in the bloodstream, it causes inflammation and damage to other organs.”

Last week's episode with Dr. Benjamin Bikman was a very beneficial & comprehensive education about insulin and blood glucose. He spoke about the biochemistry of what happens in the body when we overeat sugar and how we get sick from hormone dysfunction and inflammation.

But for those who find it quite overwhelming and technical, Juanique and Gina created a short bonus episode for you, which explains the mechanism of glucose & insulin. They use different and simple analogies to help you understand better how to monitor the food you eat, the daily activities you do, and familiarize yourself with the terminologies you can use to educate your loved ones.

Don't forget to share this with your family and friends who have listened to the Megamind episode with Dr. Benjamin Bikman. Also, be sure to subscribe and follow us on our social media accounts, where we create more content that you need to live a better, healthy, and happy life.

Exceptional Highlight:

  • Even though coconut sugar, maple syrup & honey are nature-made, they still have tons of sugar and no fiber to stabilize blood glucose.
  • If you have a 20-year-old liver versus the liver of an 80-year-old, the 20-year-old liver is going to handle the fruit beautifully.  But if you have the liver of an 80-year-old, you are not going to regulate all the sugar from the fruits you eat.
  • Check your protein bars because many of them are around 20-25 grams of sugar, while your standard Snickers bar is 25 grams of sugar.


Show Highlights: 

What is blood glucose mainly about?

Juanique 2:00

  • When talking about blood glucose, we're mainly talking about carbohydrates. And the most simple form of carbs is the monosaccharides.

A great analogy of how carbohydrates work

Gina 12:09

  • If you eat carbohydrates, they get digested and broken down. They're all linked together like a pearl necklace. Then each little pearl is like a little molecule of glucose. So when you eat a lot of carbohydrates,  they get flooded in the bloodstream really fast.

What foods are high in sugar?

Juanique 17:33

  • Table sugar, any pastries, icings, cakes, cookies, fruit juices have tons of sugar. Soda has tons of sugar, even the healthy sources, I hate to say this, but coconut sugar, maple syrup, honey, even though they are nature-made, they still have tons of sugar & no fiber to stabilize the blood glucose. 

What to check first in the food label?

Juanique 23:41

  • When you're looking at labels, you need to look at sugar first, carbohydrates second. So if it has zero sugars, but it has 60 carbs, that's still going to break down into sugar, and you'll still need a lot of insulin to break that down.

Insulin - The Root Cause of Disease

Show Summary: “When glucose goes up, it can kill you.”

Essentially, human metabolism is fueled by two energy sources, those are glucose and fat. But too much intake, especially of glucose, puts your health at risk. That's where insulin comes in, which keeps your blood glucose within the normal range.

Every cell responds to insulin differently. So if a person has insulin resistance, it means that some of his cells are resistant (ex. muscle). While, some are sensitive as they were (ex. cells in the ovaries or on the adrenal gland), which sends the wrong signal to the body to produce more hormones and causes a vast dysfunction.

In this episode with Dr. Benjamin Bikman, the author of the book Why We Get Sick, they break the misconception about insulin resistance. They also discuss why monitoring your insulin (not just your glucose) can be your lifesaver. Please share this with your family and friends to help us spread the word and save more people suffering from Diabetes and insulin resistance.

Exceptional Highlight:

  • Rather than looking at insulin as an anabolic hormone at the muscle, look at it as anti-catabolic. It prevents the breakdown of the muscle protein. And you don't need a big insulin spike to do that.
  • If the mitochondria aren't working well, then there's no question. Virtually every chronic disease is waiting for you.
  • We should be very grateful. Every time we're putting something in our mouth, we should realize that this came from something that was once alive. Whether it was a plant or animal and now its death can enrich us and help us live longer.

Show Highlights: 

What is the book, “Why We Get Sick” about?

Benjamin 1:32

  • The premise of the book is maybe a good way to start. The idea is that metabolic health essentially underlies good health or disease, that when our metabolic health is in disarray, then the consequence will be chronic diseases.

What would happen if glucose is high?

Benjamin 12:09

  • If glucose is high around the 200 milligrams per deciliter range for several hours, you will start to lose plasma volume or water from your blood as that glucose in that water is getting pulled into your urine.

What is insulin resistance?

Benjamin 16:55

  •  It is the process where insulin is simply less able to do what it used to do in a cell. And, of course, every different cell responds to insulin differently. And so it's no surprise that when I say insulin isn't working well, that affects some cells more than others.

What are the causes of insulin resistance?

Benjamin 22:26

  • One is chronically elevated stress. The other is inflammation. And then the third is you're eating a diet that is forcing your insulin levels to be up all the time. So chronically elevated insulin is a cause of insulin resistance.

Lies You've Been Told About Salt

Show Summary: “We need sodium to help us adequately maintain our blood pressure. We need it to support our brain, our adrenals, and our digestion.”

We need salt in our bodies. Studies from the American Journal of Medicine show that low salt intake causes more cardiovascular disease risk factors than extremely high intake. The adrenal, which produces cortisol, needs sodium to help our bodies adapt to stress. 

But we should know which type of salt to consume and not. Like other processed foods, salt can also be manufactured. Sadly, other manufacturers pull out the nutrients from it to make the cost cheaper, which you have to get rid of to avoid certain diseases.

In this episode with Darryl Bosshardt, one of the founders of the Redmond Red Salt, you'll discover what natural whole salt is and its difference from the one you see in the market. In addition, you'll find out how the human body reacts to a salt substitute.

Exceptional Highlight:

  • Throw out the idea of looking for sea salt, and start looking for natural whole salt.
  • Every single cell in the body requires sodium.
  • Salt is a very inexpensive preservative, and it's even cheaper if it's manufactured because they've already pulled out the nutrients. So if you're eating processed foods, you're getting high amounts of processed salt, which is a bad combination.


Show Highlights: 

Is salt really bad for us, and should we eliminate it from our diet?

Darryl 5:00

  • Salt's job in the body is to regulate intracellular and extracellular fluids. So when those fluids are out of balance, it does cause, or it can cause problems. So these doctors did a study on rats and fed them copious amounts of sodium, and sure enough, they had some problems. And that'd be true for everything.

Does lack of salt affect your food digestion?

Juanique 9:42

  • If you're decreasing your salt intake, you don't have enough sustenance to create hydrochloric acid in the stomach to break down your food. Therefore, you're not absorbing your food and would have malabsorption. Consequently, you start to get sick. So we need this salt to get the chloride to pump it into our stomach to break down our food.

What should we know about the world of iodized salt?

Darryl 20:27

  • Most people, especially women, are iodine deficient for several reasons, whether that's halogen toxicity, diet, or many different factors involved. Most people should be going out of their way to seek good sources of iodine, be that food or a good clean iodine supplement. But salt is not the way to get iodine.

Why We Lose Libido As We Age

Show Summary: “Women have such delicate hormones. They experience shifts at different times that make them feel that their body is at war against them.”

Women are natural nurturers. They are great at multitasking, particularly in taking care of their children, working, and doing household chores. But as they age, they experience different issues in their bodies, such as weight gain, loss of libido, and loss of energy.

These issues cause mood changes, difficulty to stay in shape, and usually have crazy cravings. And it doesn't only happen with moms, even in single and younger women, which is quite alarming, especially for the younger generation.

In this episode, Juanique and Gina discuss the other possible reasons why you don't feel like yourself because of these shifts in your body, their personal experiences and how you can prevent it from happening. Listen as they talk about the program they created for you to heal yourself using the tools they have in the roadmap.

Exceptional Highlight:

  • There can be a time and a place for cardio, but from a hormone balance perspective, keeping it short and doing things like Yoga, Pilates, strength training might be a lot better.
  • If your hormones are all over the place, you should take an honest look at your stress. If you're stressed, that's going to take priority, and all your other hormones will drop.
  • Sleeping resets everything; it brings inflammation down.


Show Highlights: 

Why do we gain weight and lose our libido as we age?

Gina 2:14

  • I think for me, it was a combination of trying to heal my body from birth control, being under so much stress. I remember waking up in the morning, and I don't even feel like myself anymore. I don't feel positive anymore. And I was using caffeine and coffee to get me into a good mood.

How our hormones and organs work together

Gina 11:05

  • The main ones that I'm thinking about are your sex hormones. You have your estrogen or progesterone, your testosterone. These hormones are like a symphony. Your estrogen, that's what's going to drive you for reproduction, that's what's going to support you to have sex & have a baby; that very juicy hormone there. Your testosterone is more like your metabolism.

What happens to your cortisol level when you're not sleeping?

Juanique 27:22

  • When you're not sleeping well, you will have a higher cortisol level in the morning.

Gina  27:45

  • There's a research study where they deprived mice of sleep, and I can't remember how long it took. But after a certain amount of time, they all get diabetes.

What’s inside the Gutsy Health Membership?

Juanique 46:17

  • Gina and I have put together inside The Gutsy Health Membership these incredible units that deep dive into the dysfunctions, and we give you tools to help you become the expert in your own healing.

Master Your Subconscious To Heal Yourself

Show Summary: “Take the reins of your subconscious; The embodiment of your power.”

All human beings have experienced stress, toxicity, or trauma, which changed their perception of life. Some survived it, but some are still living in their dark past, which negatively affects their way of thinking and ability to make decisions.

Implanting different subconscious programming to human beings' minds since childhood takes them away from knowing their real identity, contributing to someone's suffering. But to heal is to grow; to grow is to heal. No matter how difficult or challenging it may sound, it can be simply done if you know the right tools and steps.

That's why Juanique, together with Audrey Taylor, have created a workshop to help you change your current mindset and thought patterns and help you reclaim your power back and take charge of your life. Their goal is to teach you how to fill your love and energy cup and attract the caliber of relationship & results you have with yourself.

We’re offering you a 50USD discount on the workshop, during this episode!

Exceptional Highlight:

  • Trauma doesn't come through intellectually; It comes in emotionally and energetically.
  • Your trauma is not your fault, but it's your responsibility to heal it.
  • I create my future by releasing the past.
  • All betrayal is self-betrayal.


Show Highlights: 

What kind of workshop are Juanique and Aubrey putting up?

Aubrey 4:30

  • We are designing for you all a beautiful Master Your Subconscious Workshop. We have been talking about the tools that people are using that are getting them a little bit of progress, but then maybe they plateau, flatline, or fall flat on their face, and they feel like they try, but it just doesn't work. So we wanted to talk about some of those things that maybe have a little bit of positive change but aren't like the full shebang, and you feel stuck.

What do we do to heal?

Juanique 8:23

  • Something that you've mentioned to members in the past is that we have to have an identity crisis for us to heal. And that is terrifying. In fact, for most people, that's probably scarier than facing your disease because your disease feels tangible. The identity crisis is who you are, and this is your ego. We have to go back to the beginning and recognize our part in playing out these stories and energy.

What is the victim-villain-hero analogy?

Juanique 17:54

  • Often, when we are in a situation that doesn't serve us, we play the victim, and there's a villain out there who's attacking you, and you want a hero. Part of the identity crisis is saying there are no victims, and there are no villains, there are no heroes, there's just being accountable for your part.

Three things to do in the workshop to solidify change 

Aubrey 29:14

  • We need something that is going to initiate a real subconscious shift. That would be an immersive workshop, not a seminar, not something where you are a passive participant and recipient of all this information.
  • We’ll be (1)  teaching you, and then (2) you’ll be teaching each other and (3) we’ll be standing by as you practice independently.

Healing- How We Are Doing It Wrong

Show Summary:  “When I'm sitting down with my five coaches and we're going over training and cases, they say, everyone's foundational issues are almost identical. You actually are very unique, please embrace your uniqueness. But disease is not. Disease oftentimes all stems from the same root causes. People don't implement the basics because they don't understand them and they don't see the value behind implementing basics because it's too basic.”

Gutsy Health started when Tristin was diagnosed with cancer a few years back. It became their motivation to study and open a clinic to help and educate people about healing; It also sparked Juanique's mission to save Tristin. They created courses, memberships, and the podcast to spread their word and make micro changes worldwide.

Despite all the great things they have built, their uphill battle continues. When Tristin's cancer came back, and his body was giving up because of the tumor, his doctor told Juanique that he only had two weeks to live. But like what they say, "You can't put a good man down!". Miraculously, Tristin is gradually bouncing back and is now doing great!

Fueled by their mission, Juanique, and Tristin, together with their good friend, Gina Worful,  a Registered Dietitian, created a program that consists of complimentary classes, a new membership, and consultations that break down everything you should know, even the basic components, so you can get a clear grasp of what's truly going on inside your body. Listen until the end of the episode and find out how to be a part of the program.

A little update about Juanique and Tristin

Juanique 1:23

  • This business is an extension of me, and it's my passion project. It's not even a business; it's who I am. And it started because of Tristin's cancer. It began with the burning fire because the doctor told us that he wouldn't live past two years.

What idea keeps Juanique awake at night?

  • I want to explain this diagram to you guys because I think I did it at 1 AM.  I literally stay up at night, trying to figure out the world's problems and I was thinking, "How can we help people heal themselves?"

Let your body be your trainer

Gina 35:00

Let your body be your trainer. I think a lot of people have a fear of, "Well if I just listened to my body, it'll be just sitting on the couch."  But truly, we need to check in on it. When I  got honest with what my body wanted, it wanted to move in so many different ways.

What’s in the program?

Juanique 45:00

There are three options. You can just buy one of the parts. You can buy the Foundations of The Food and Health part if that's what you want to focus on, or you can buy the Heal Your Whole Body Roadmap part.

Hydrogen Water - The New Water Craze You Need To Know Of

Show Summary:  The research behind hydrogen water is that it can act as antioxidant in the body and help nurture a healthy gut biome as well as help normalize any kind of dysbiosis. It can also help with other diseases, like diabetes and neurological dysfunctions

Hydrogen water has a lot of miraculous benefits to the human body.  Even people with diabetes typically experience normalization of glucose levels within three to five days of drinking it. Juanique's tremor has reduced by ninety percent three days after installing it in their home.

People who visit Dr. Paul's booth at trade shows who couldn't hold a glass of six to eight ounces of water come back to him with their hands still after ten minutes of consuming it. His wife, who was in extreme menstrual cycle pain and was anemic, is now free from all of those discomforts. Again, thanks to hydrogen water.

But, how does it help heal a human body?

In this episode, Dr. Paul Barattiero, a certified naturopathic doctor and the CEO and founder of Synergy Science, discusses its mechanisms and success stories showing its power to heal. Listen as he tells about the places on Earth where you can naturally get water with hydrogen gas and find out where you can buy Echo Water machines for you and your family.

Exceptional Highlight:

  • All disease starts with gut dysfunction
  • Putting hydrogen into the gut will not repair the gut. Changing the electrical potential of the tissue in the gut will repair it and its functions. Hydrogen will help feed healthy anaerobic gut bacteria
  • When we use antibiotics inappropriately or appropriately, it can destroy our gut tissue's polarity or the epithelial tissue in the gastrointestinal tract

Show Highlights: 

How did Dr. Paul discover hydrogen water?

Dr. Paul 3:06

  • As a thank you, our friends took my wife and I on a nine-day cruise to the Panama Canal. But they brought a suitcase of 1 gallon water jugs with them for us, filled with special water -  After drinking the water my wife almost completely recovered from debilitating health issues

Why is hydrogen water so good for us?

Dr. Paul 21:08

  • Our bodies were designed to digest food and during digestion, we have fermentation in the gut. When fermentation happens, we have these beautiful bacteria called hydrogen tropes that will consume fiber, water soluble or beneficial fiber as well as short chain fatty acids, medium chain fatty acids, and convert those things into hydrogen gas in the gut. But because of our lack of whole food consumption, antibiotic use and herbicide/pesticide exposure our gut biome is constantly being destroyed which then decreases its ability to produce hydrogen which then decreases the body's ability to then utilise it as an antioxidant

Stress, Neuroinflammation and Digestive Issues

Show Summary:  “When you're bloated and have a super noisy gut, you might not be making enough enzymes to break down your food because you're stressed out.”

Stress and digestive issues can create neuro-inflammation. The vagus nerve attaches to every organ in a human body's digestive tract, keeping you in balance and maintaining your homeostasis. But, viruses can potentially hijack the vagus nerve and the immune system depending on how well the body can balance different life stressors.

The neck area has a direct connection with the brain. When someone has Epstein Barr or food sensitivities, they get swollen lymph nodes. Poor posture and stress can cause tight neck, preventing proper circulation and getting rid of toxins to help the body heal.

Dr. Jannine Krause, a Naturopathic Doctor, Acupuncturist, and Podcaster, shares how strengthening the parasympathetic system can combat this issue. Listen well as she gives tips and actionable practices on how to start to calm your nervous system to prevent inflammation.

Exceptional Highlight:

  • Stress creates inflammation in the nervous system and we get infections because of it.
  • You can't run from a bear and digest food. The brain literally cannot do that. Your nervous system is either in a parasympathetic state (rest and digest) or it’s in a sympathetic state (fight or flight) but it can’t be in both.
  • Your oral health is related to your systemic health. When your gums keep bleeding or getting cavities, that is related to gut health.


Show Highlights: 

The belly is your first brain

Jannine 3:06

  • We also have all these nerves that are connected, they go all the way down the spine, so can potentially affect every single part of your body, every organ in your body..

How do we help ourselves with neuro-inflammation?

Jannine 14:41

  • It's not because we need to calm  the sympathetic nervous system, we need to strengthen the parasympathetic. I'm doing a lot more lifestyle stuff now and working on how we get more calm and there's this great thing called parasympathetic breathing.

What does food sensitivities have to do with it?

Jannine 19:46 

  • With food sensitivities, what's happening is we've got two things. One is the neck bottleneck issue here. Part of it is if your neck is dealing with stuff, you're putting food in, your neck’s already inflamed - we're adding histamine. Histamine is a neurotransmitter that comes out in response to inflammation. So if you're struggling with rashes, or hives, or any of that stuff, and you can't figure it out, this could be  neuro-inflammation.

Lead: The Silent Epidemic

Show Summary:  “It causes so many things because it's one of the most potent neurotoxins known to man, and it also impacts pretty much every biological system, but there's no outward symptom.”

Moms are known for being very protective of their little ones. But the question is, how far are they willing to go to give the best life to their kids? How much effort can they give to raise awareness to their fellow moms about the toxins contributing to children's brain damage?

In this episode, Juanique and Gina ask Tamara Rubin everything she knows about the harmful effects of Lead. Tamara is a child health advocate, author, environmental activist, and documentary filmmaker. Her son was acutely poisoned when a painter they hired used an open flame torch to burn the paint off their house's exterior. Now, he has severe OCD, has ADHD and Dyslexia, and all sorts of learning disabilities. This ignited her mission even more, to tell the world, specifically moms, to protect their kids from the dangers of Lead.

She publishes new blogs almost every day and educates people where it exists, such as toys and even cooking dishes. Listen as she shares tips on properly choosing the best materials you can use at home to minimize your family's exposure to Lead.

MisLEAD: America’s Secret Epidemic




Exceptional Highlight:

  • Main forms of exposure are inhalation and ingestion. But the thing is it's not like eating paint chips. That's a myth. A child doesn't need to eat a paint chip to be poisoned.
  • The Lead industry have made a concerted effort to hide this information from us intentionally, to hide the damaging impacts of Lead
  • The same people who worked on the tobacco industry campaigns to make sure that you think cigarettes are safe are those people who also initially designed the Lead poisoning obfuscation campaign, making you think that Lead paint is safe.

Show Highlights: 

Why is Lead a silent epidemic?

Tamara 1:08

  • But the reason it's a silent epidemic or a secret epidemic is because there's no outward symptom.

Do any toys have any kind of metal in it?

Tamara 8:38

  • I do want to give people some hope. As much as there's Lead in everything, we also need to not be afraid and we need to not live in fear.

How does XRF instrument work?

Tamara 13:25 - 

  • If your readers or listeners go to eBay and look for a used XRF instrument, they're going to find used ones from 5 to $10,000. The problem is that's not the right instrument. The instrument I use is the one specifically used by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The Role of Neurotransmitters and Mold

Show Summary:  “Neurotransmitters  are basically neuro chemicals in your body that control every aspect of it -  your digestion, muscles, mood, and are very related to anxiety, depression, sleep, and peristalsis of your gut.  They are involved in every single function of the body.”

Dopamine and Serotonin are neurotransmitters and are very powerful. Being deficient in it can make you feel exhausted, unmotivated and can cause anxiety and depression. Medical professionals see it as something critical because it can contribute to hormone dysregulation. 

Another thing that can trigger depression and anxiety is mold as it is often invisible and misdiagnosed.

What's even trickier about this is people often think that they don't have mold in their homes. Surprisingly, it can cause an illness in any organ or our thyroid glands and create symptoms like brain fog. That's why Dr. Ann-Marie Barter believes that every household needs to address this and that more people need to be tested for mold toxicity. 

In this episode, Dr. Ann-Marie Barter, a Chiropractor and Functional Medicine practitioner in private practice in Denver, Colorado tells us more about hormonal issues, its causes and effects and how we can address it initially. Listen as she breaks down every aspect you need to know about what could be causing your stress, anxiety, depression or some other illnesses.

Exceptional Highlights:

  • Most people are actually deficient with neurotransmitters across the board.
  • Sugar is a legal drug we are all dependent and addicted to, and the food industry is well aware of this
  • Be careful with mold exposure - Mold is a great imitator. It mimics many diseases and dysfunctions in the body

Show Highlights: 

How do you usually address Neurotransmitters when people come to you with health issues?

Ann 6:43

  • I think two things are really important to address before you deal with neurotransmitters. The gut - it’s very important. If you have all this gut dysregulation, then guess what? You have to fix that first.

What are Catecholamines?

Ann 9:09

  • When we're looking at dopamine, basically you’re fight or flight, (which are catecholamines), this helps us run from a bear. But you need to be able to transition between being motivated, focused and feeling worthwhile and hopeful to be unable to run from that bear. Because that pathway for dopamine, is the same as your catecholamines pathways that fight or flight. And you have to be able to transition between the two seamlessly.

Covid-19 Vaccine — Should You Take It

Show Summary: "Vaccines are meant to stimulate your immune system."

The pandemic has been testing the mental, physical and emotional well-being of people worldwide since it started. Many felt the fear of losing their lives or their loved ones because of how dangerous it has become. Wearing masks, face shields, and social distancing are now the new norm. Restrictions are everywhere to prevent the virus from spreading and taking the lives of many. The decrease in economic growth has been felt, especially in third-world countries.

But the question is, until when do we suffer from this? Now that vaccines are developed, many believe and hope that the pandemic is soon coming to an end. However, it sparks multiple reactions and emotions from different people. Some are afraid to get it, while others can't wait to be vaccinated.

"Is it safe for all ages?"

"Will it prevent the transmission?"

"If taken, does it mean your 100 percent protected from the virus?"

In this episode, Dr. Bradley Campbell of Integrated Holistic Healthcare in Wilmette, IL, and author of "Do I Have Adrenal Fatigue" book, shares his experiences with vaccines since he was a child up to the present. As a kid, he and his sister were doing a regular vaccine schedule, but they had different reactions to it, which made him more curious about its risks and benefits.

Sugars' Many Forms and Triggers — The “Perfect” Root Beer Float

Show Summary: "We allow people to consume as much sugar as possible without them recognizing it and, it leads to a lifetime of health issues."

Sugary foods are yummy and inviting, but they are also addicting and dangerous.

How did the root beer float trigger start?

Juanique 8:08

  • There was one day where he's just craving root beer floats. So his dad went out and bought him some ice cream, which is like a keto ice cream. It has low sugar, but a whole bunch of other ingredients. And then we got the zevia root beers and they taste really good, but they're sweetened with stevia. So I showed everyone online, I'm like, “Hey, this is how I make Justin's root beer floats.”

Overcoming Emotional Eating with Tricia Nelson

Show Summary: "To heal your hunger, you have to feel some hunger because that hunger informs you of what's going on."

Do you feel defeated because of your Yoyo diet?

Do you feel frustrated from preventing yourself from binge eating unhealthy foods, but you still end up feeling guilty after a stressful day?

Have you always been disappointed because of overeating?

Tricia Nelson, the author of Heal Your Hunger book and a transformational speaker, shares her roller coaster experience in being an emotional eater.

She tried many ways like diet, pills, programs, and consulted an eating disorder therapist to find solutions, but unfortunately, nothing worked for her.  She would always go back to her yoyo diet, which broke her hope of finding the real problem.

Being focused on food and weight symptoms is not the key because it is just a symptom.  What you have to dive into and deal with are the underlying causes, like the emotional factors. Good thing, Tricia overcame this through the help of her spiritual healer by addressing the real cause of her eating disorder.

Her journey has been her inspiration in educating people about food addiction or any health issues where the diet is involved. Listen as she breaks down the common misconceptions about food, emotional, and physical hunger.

  • I started out as an emotional eater, I think from the get go like as far back as I can, I remember food was a big highlight for me.

How did she figure out the missing piece to her problem?

Tricia 5:1

  • I was still young. I tried so many things, I'd actually lost some weight. And I was about to go back up the scale again, because that was my habit. 

How did she start to heal her hunger?

Tricia  24:55

  • I did a lot of intense work. After a year or so I was in so much of a better place, and I didn't have the cravings anymore. I was in a thin body and I could handle being in a thin body, feeling worthy of being seen or feeling comfortable.

How does one differentiate between emotional hunger and physical hunger

Tricia  37:4

  • I've been doing this work for over 30 years now and it amazes me as a motivator, like I'll get off a phone call that's really stressful and I’d be like, “I'm hungry”.
  • And I'll think, “What can I eat?” And then I'll have this conversation with myself. And I'd be like, “Wait, you know, you just had breakfast a couple hours ago. Are you really that hungry?”

Exercise and Brain Health Interview with Jennifer Etnier

Show Summary: “There's one organ in the body that's designed to benefit off of movement and that's the brain.”

Jennifer Etnier,  a fellow at the American College of Sports Medicine and the National Academy of Kinesiology,  focuses on physical activity's cognitive benefits. Her mom inspired her mission to spark awareness about the ability of exercise to improve brain functions.

It started when she noticed the difference in his mom's ability to problem-solve, mostly around technology, compared to his father's. At the age of 80, her mom still plays pickleball for two to three hours a day, which is not a regular activity for adults. She also hikes a lot, and she stays active with gardening and all sorts of activities.

Right now, they're doing a clinical trial that's supported by the National Institute of aging. They're looking at the potential benefits of a one-year commitment to physical activity for 40 to 65 years old and have a family history of Alzheimer's disease. They believe that if cognitively normal and healthy people participate in exercise for a year, they'll get behavioral benefits,  brain structure, and brain function benefits.

Look For The Good - Jason Mraz

Podcast Services

Exceptional Highlight ( A quote that Juanique read during the recording) :

“Every action taken by human beings is based on love or fear.

Decisions affecting business, industry, politics, religion, the education of your young, the social agenda of your nations, the economic goals of your society, choices involving war, peace, attack, defense, aggression, submission, determinations, to covet or give away to save or to share to unite or to divide.

Every single free choice you have ever undertaken arises out of one of the only two possible thoughts there is - A thought of love or a thought of fear.

Fear is the energy which contracts, closes down, draws in, runs, hides, hoards, harms. Love is the energy which expands, opens up, senses out, stays, reveals, shares, heals.

Fear wraps our bodies enclosed. Love allows us to stand naked fear clings to and clutches all that we have. Love gives all that we have away.

Fear holds close, love holds dear.

Fear grasps love lets go.

Fear rankles love suits, fear attacks, love amends.

Every human thought, word or deed is based on one emotion or the other. You have no choice about this, because there's nothing else from which to choose but you have free choice about which of these to select.”

Tristin 16:01

  • One out of two people in their lifetime will contract cancer, which means that 30% of it would be a very, very rare incident where a person does not know somebody who has cancer.

What can you do for people who are battling with cancer?

The Truth About Tristin

Show Summary: We have different battles. Others may look like they are the happiest when behind the laughter and smile is a heart full of sadness and pain. 

No one exactly knows what each person is going through, whether it's financial, family, or health problems. Because sometimes, it's part of being a loving & caring person; we choose to hide what we feel and spread positivity even if we know that it's taking the toll on us

Our mentors, coaches, healers, or consultants are no exemption to this. The amazing people who empower and guide us also experience challenges in life. But to push you to move forward, they sometimes have to cry in silence, keep their problems to themselves just to see you grow and prosper. 

Like Tristin and Juanique, their mission is to save lives by making a holistic lifestyle change. Behind it is a roller coaster ride of different emotions, anxiety, and stress because of Tristin's battle with cancer. However, this doesn't stop them from raising awareness about taking full responsibility for what you eat and do for long, healthy, and happy lives.

In this episode, they tell you how their journey has been in this year and

  • What symptoms has Tristin been feeling
  • What his current state is
  • Treatments that he undergoes
  • What realizations they have as a married couple with business and health struggles

Listen to this episode, and don't forget to say thanks to the people who help you heal, guide you, and make you happy. 

To all who never stop to work day in and out to make this world a better place, THANK YOU. You are truly FANTASTIC.

Why did Juanique and Tristin start The Gutsy Health Podcast?

Juanique 9:34

  • The reason why we started this podcast, the reason why I just started talking on a platform to begin with.

Why was the first half of the year so traumatic to both of them?

Tristin 14:30

  •  It was like symptoms coming and going. It was really weird. Fear, anxiety, trauma, panic attacks look the other way.

What was their business struggle?

Juanique 17:45

  • We haven't even spoken about the stress of the business this year. On top of all of this panic from January to July, Provo health just blew up, which we're so grateful for. But we're not business people. 

What was their experience attending the retreat?

Tristin 38:11

  • We showed up to this retreat the first day. And we were both scared out of our minds. Yeah, we're in this house with 50 people. They all know and love each other. They're hugging and talking like, best friends from childhood. We're sitting in a corner.

How To Heal Your Gut- The Gut Restoration Protocol

Show Summary: Many people have gut dysfunction because we live in a very harmful and antagonistic society towards our gut biome. What’s worse is some scientists say that it is totally fine when it’s not. Childhood allergies are one of the harmful effects, and it has now tripled, which is why we have to be cautious of what is detrimental to our health.

Other factors contributing to gut dysbiosis are stress, which increases inflammation and makes it a hostile environment for healthy bacteria to populate. Second is antibiotics and birth control. Third are the foods containing glyphosate, mostly found in bread, pasta, or processed food that uses wheat.

Learn some practical steps on how to start restoring your gut biome with Juanique, as she also discusses her top six list of most inflammatory foods on the planet. Find out what superfoods you can eat to feed the good bacteria and help them grow exponentially.

Gut Restoration

3 Exceptional Highlights:

  • We need to have the good bacteria be the king of the castles, we need more of them, the bigger the army, the more damage control they can do.
  • Those born in the 90s I think are like five times more likely to get colon cancer in their 30s.
  • You're going to take your probiotic with food so that as it goes in and germinates its spores out. It should have food to eat because it wants to grow.

Show Highlights: 

What is the screening age for colon cancer now? 

Juanique 3:45

  • There were a lot of very triggered people, and I apologize, but it basically said that those born in the 90s I think are like five times more likely to get colon cancer in their 30s.

What is a healthy gut?

Juanique 9:38 

  •  A healthy gut has a nice strong lining epithelium lining so it's not broken down.

How does inflammation start?

Juanique 14:30

  • When we don't have enough healthy good bacteria to protect the mucous lining, the epithelial lining starts to break down. And when it breaks down with that mucosal lining starts to kind of dry up, and vaporize. 

What is rebalancing?

Juanique 21:32

  • Rebalance is stress management, yoga, exercising self-care, deep breathing, meditation. 

How to repair and repopulate?

Juanique 21:47

  • If you have insane gut dysbiosis if you potentially have cebo you might not want to start with this one. And I'll tell you why. Because there might be a lot of competition in your gut and it might make you more bloated and gassy.

Mold Contamination - Recognize and Remediate with Ryan Blaser

Show Summary: Molds are a fungus that feeds off of organic material, and it can make you sick.  Its existence in the household makes it dangerous for human health, especially if people are unaware of what it does to our immune system. Sadly, eighty percent of American families have toxic mold problems that affect the occupants' health.

It doesn't exempt dry areas when there is a leaky pipe, water damage, or drainage issues.  Itchy throat, cough, or runny nose that doesn't go away are toxic molds' symptoms. It also has psychological effects like headaches, brain fog, fatigue, depression, nausea, and in some cases, even hallucinations; if it's bad enough.

To get rid of it, listen to Ryan Blaser, the owner of Test My Home, a company aiming to create healthy, toxic-free work and home environments through mold remediation.  Find out what other recommendations he has to prevent molds from spreading to your house.

3 Exceptional Highlights:

  • The reason that it's toxic is that mold is fighting for its territory. They're not necessarily doing that to harm humans, but they're trying to fight off the other mold species that are in the area.
  • Proper mold remediation, according to the standards, is removing the mold physically. So either sanding, if it's in a porous material, it needs to be thrown away.
  • Our number one goal is to build a healthy home and to have mold-free, toxin-free. And let's take our time, let's do it right.  It might take a little bit longer, but in the end, you're going to have a home, that's going to be a sanctuary for you.

Show Highlights: 

What is Mold?

Ryan 3:50

  • Mold is a fungus, it's a fungus in its own kingdom. And it feeds off of organic material. So if you have water and you have organic material, mold spores are in the air everywhere. So you give it a little water, something to eat, and you're gonna have mold growing.

What's the difference between bad mold, black mold & mold on our cheese??

Ryan 4:21 

  • There are several hundred different kinds of mold in their molds that are much worse than others just like they're different kinds of animals. So a tiger might be more dangerous than a bunny.

How do you know if you have a mold problem?

Ryan 11:31

  • There are a couple of things you can do. Mold needs water to grow. One of the first things you can do is look for water leaks. If you had a water leak, do you currently have any water spots or water damage? 

Are there certain materials or ways you can build to minimize your risk of mold?

Ryan 22:28

  • Using magnesium boards instead of drywall, it doesn't have the paper on it. There's nothing for the mold to grow on and it's breathable. 

Can we use bleach on it or paint over it?

Ryan 28:05

  • It’s the worst thing you can put on mold. It actually makes it worse for two reasons:
    • Bleach is 90% water or one, 
    • It doesn't kill it right away. When you put bleach on it, it gives it enough time for it to realize it's under attack and it releases a lot of mycotoxins and a lot of spores before it has a chance to die.

Gut Health During the Holidays - Interview with Andrew Colombini

Show Summary: Juanique and Tristin share their interview with Andrew Colombini as a part of the Healthy Holiday Summit, which aims to raise awareness about getting through the holidays by choosing delicious, regret-free treats that power over your cravings while making sure you're staying healthy.

Holidays are supposed to be fun and exciting because you celebrate it with your family. You get to eat delicious foods and treats that your mother, aunt, or grandmother prepared for you. But the sad part of being unconscious of what you eat is it takes you away from a healthy lifestyle that can eventually ruin your body's first brain, which is (evolutionary speaking) the gut.

  • Listen as they give tips on how to maintain your healthy lifestyle while enjoying the rest of the holidays. 
  • Find out how to get your family's support in making a holistic lifestyle change 
  • Get ideas on what kind of food to prepare during holidays.

3 Exceptional Highlights:

  • Your gut is literally the root system of a tree, you can't buy apples from a second tree and try to put it on your tree, you have to nurture your root system.
  • Gut health without holidays is already bad enough.
  • If you're not producing a lot of hydrochloric acid because you're stressed because you eat a lot of refined grains, because you have a lot of inflammation it means you’re not healing.

Show Highlights: 

How did Juanique and Tristin discover what true health is?

Juanique 3:33

  • It was really interesting because we were at the same hospital, I was getting my 20 week ultrasound. And then I went three floors up to pick him up from his colonoscopy. And I thought like, the worst news of my day would be, oh, something's wrong with my baby. But I realized, nope, something's wrong with my husband.

Heal the gut, heal the mind

Juanique 9:07

  • Because you're either in fight or flight or rest and digest, and most of us are chronically in fight or flight. We can't fight or flight and rest and digest at the same time. We really need to work on healing the gut, but then also healing our mind.

We have bad gut health

Andrew 11:00

  • That's why I really wanted to present this because especially the holidays. We already have bad gut health and now we're gonna add all this other stuff up.

Why are the holidays tough on our gut?

Juanique & Tristin 11:52

  • Well, it's interesting that you mentioned gluten, because if there's one thing that tends to be associated with holiday foods, it's gluten. It's bread, it's cakes, its rolls. It's all of those things. And the reason why it's super hard on our guts is just because of how wheat is manufactured these days.

Affirmation From Aubrey Taylor

"Dear body, I love you.

I love myself and I am worthy of love and healing.

I nourish my body with healing foods and lifestyle choices and it responds with health, strength, vitality, and healthy gene expression.

Every cell in my body vibrates with energy and health and is in communication with all other cells.

With every exhale, I release stress and disease. With every inhale, I channel connection, love, and health to every cell.

All of my body’s systems and organs function perfectly.

My body communicates with me and I pay attention and give my body what it needs.

I am a daughter of God who has entrusted me with this earthly body as a temple for my soul.

I am worthy of healing and thriving, physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

I release and forgive whatever part of my past brought me to this point. My body is divinely designed to heal, and I invite that divinity within me to take the reins."

Ozone Healing with Dr. David Minkoff

Show Summary: In this episode with Dr. David Minkoff, an alternative healthcare expert and the author of BodyHealth Fitness Newsletter and the Optimum Health Report, talks about his journey in starting his practice and clinic. He mentions how Jeffrey Bland, the father of Functional Medicine, inspired him to pursue his career and mission to help people heal from different illnesses.

He shares the possibilities of Prolozone and IV Ozone and how it makes a difference in many problems. It makes athletes run faster, makes sick people feel better, and helps get over their infections and fatigue. He says one special thing about it is the patient's response rate. Eighty percent of his patients who underwent four to six treatments due to chronic long-term back pain, knee pain, or neck problem had extreme pain relief.

Ozone can be used at home too. It clears the air of odors and viruses, and other types of particles. It also improves mitochondria which are the area in the cell where energy is made.

Body Health Website

Dr. David Minkoff Website

Dr. David Minkoff’s Book

3 Exceptional Highlights:

  • Ozone is good as a detoxifier, will tailor-bind with things and neutralize them
  • If the NAD is not ready to get an NADH, if the NADH is still stuck on there, it can't take a new particle to make energy. Ozone resets that so you see people get more energy and you see their brain and their kidneys and their livers function better because the cell can actually make energy better.
  • There are things in the body that shouldn't be there. And there are things missing from the body that should be there. And if you can figure out what those things are and restore them, then the physiology gets back to the way it's supposed to be.

Show Highlights: 

How did Dr. Minkoff start his practice and clinic?

1:58 Dr. Minkoff

  • When I finished medical school, I didn't know what I wanted to do. And I went to the University of Wisconsin, and I thought I would do a rotating internship.

How do they do Prolozone and what is the effect?

10:30 Dr. Minkoff

  • We did prolozone, which is injecting ozone into joints and soft tissue areas where there's pain. And we started putting it into bladders for people who have like interstitial cystitis bladder pain.

How do his patients respond to Ozone treatments?

13:18 Dr. Minkoff

  • In four to six treatments, 80% of the patients that I saw had extreme alleviation of their pain or no pain.

How does Ozone retain the good bacteria while killing the bad ones?

22:34 Dr. Minkoff

  • Our own cells have in the cell membrane, an enzyme which is called peroxidase. It is able to neutralize ozone. So if ozone comes in as a free radical, it's neutralized by the peroxidase.

If Ozone is a pollutant, why are we wanting to put it all over ourselves??

24:27 Dr. Minkoff

  • Well, it's not really pollutant, it actually helps with pollution. The ozone layer is actually a protectant.

Heal Your Mitochondria to Heal Your Body

Show Summary: In this episode, Tristin and Juanique discuss the importance of mitochondria, how to make sure that it’s optimally functioning and what destroys and enhances it. All the other treatments and things you do can even make you worse if you don’t pay attention.

They mentioned that a holistic approach is more exponential and beneficial to your health than working out for two hours a day for seven days a week. Extreme workout can destroy your mitochondrial function because our bodies are not designed to carry so much work and stress.

Connecting with nature helps us heal and improves our body function even more. Seeing the sunrise has a physiological effect on our bodies because it stimulates melatonin production, which is very anti-inflammatory and helps boost the immune system, brain function, sleep, and neurological regulation.

3 Exceptional Highlights:

  • Heart rate variability is very closely tied to your mitochondrial function.
  • If the heart is struggling, everything else is struggling.
  • Our health is dependent on our ability to connect with nature.

Show Highlights: 

Is working out helpful to our body?

8:29 Juanique

  • How many people listening here are just hitting the gym two hours a day, like seven days a week? They're thinking, What is gonna make me healthy? And then they're sicker, their hormones get worse, they keep gaining weight.

Why do we need to get back to what our species evolved to do?

10:10 Tristin

  • We need to get back to what our species evolved to do. And the further we get away from what our ancestors did, and the environment they lived in, the sicker we get.

What is a normal stress response cycle and sympathetic state?

17:25 Tristin

  • Why zebras don't get ulcers. Zebras, if you think about it, they live a very stressful life. They're constantly on the hunt for food, looking for water, oh, and the water is filled with crocodiles that want to eat them.

The Evolution of Mitochondria

21:35 Juanique

  • I want to talk about the evolution of the mitochondria for a second. Sure, it is theorized by scientists that the mitochondria was the first part of the cell to ever be like to ever be, actually because it is morphed from bacteria.

The Earth heals us

30:02 Tristin

  • We need positive and negative charge, they need to be balanced. And one of the ways that the human body has traditionally accomplished that is through contact with the Earth.

At the age of thirty-nine, she was diagnosed with permanent irreversible infertility and early menopause & she was told she’d never be able to have another child. It made her feel the massive devastation many couples experience because of the inability to produce offspring. But it motivated her to pursue functional medicine, and now through her knowledge and expertise, she had amazingly helped hundreds of women get pregnant.

She mentioned that just by cleaning up the diet, taking out the sugar, the endocrine disrupters, the preservatives, and eating organic foods create a vast difference in our lives and make us feel ninety percent better.

  • The pharmaceutical companies fund our medical education. So we're given the best latest chemical, the best latest surgical technique or device and that doesn't address the, it's not getting to the root cause it's not root cause medicine so thankfully with the strength and growing awareness of functional medicine, consumers are demanding.
  • Girls starting birth control pills before the age 16 have a significantly increased risk of breast cancer.

Show Highlights: 

What kind or trauma did Dr. Anna experience in life?

7:19 Dr. Anna

  • In 2006, we lost our son, in a tragic accident, he was only 18 months. And that's when, from you know, just devastation I mean, when I talk about devastation upon devastation.

Birth control increases the odds of breast cancer by 40%

17:48 Juanique

  • I remember reading back in the day, when I was reading about all the notes on cancer summits and stuff that research was coming up that birth control would increase your odds of breast cancer by 40%. And I'm like, Why are doctors not telling us this?

What kind of Keto is clean?

22:46 Dr. Anna

  • There's a healthy way to do keto. There's keto clean, and there's keto dirty. So Keto Green is keto clean. And what I found out as I hit my second menopause, let's say at 48 I'm really struggling I dove down into another deep well, and you know, the brain fog the weight gain without doing anything different..

Do you have to count your carbs from vegetables and leafy greens if you do Keto-Green?

Bread That Won't Kill You - How to Safely Reintroduce Grains

Show Summary: In this episode, Nathan, the founder of Time Traveler's Bakery, shares his health history & journey on how he started his company. He tells why he should watch every food he eats because of his autoimmune disorder. His chronic fatigue began when he was 14 years old up to the mid-20s. He experienced full-body pain from his back, lower and upper shoulders, neck, and head, which made him think that by the time he was 35, he'd probably have some assistance with a walker or wheelchair.

He then decided to go to a therapist and had some elimination diet, where he gradually felt that the pain was decreasing. He cut out some food that helped him overcome his depression and chronic fatigue, but he figured he still lacked the nutrients he needed. He knew he had to do something to get back to gluten and wheat without experiencing extreme pain, and that's how the Time Traveler's Bakery started.

They call their bakery "Time Traveler's bakery" because they believe in the phrase "Back In Time, Back In Health." He says if we go back in time and make it that old way, then autoimmune disorders might not exist anymore.

3 Exceptional Highlights:

  • My body has worth, my spirit has worth, my brain has worth. I need to honor them and let them speak to me.
  • It’s a  balance thing, because we used to care about balance. And now it's all about marketability, right? So they are willing to sacrifice a lot of the underlying function and quality to get a more marketable product. It's like what we do with dogs, right? We breed them into this state where they have hip problems and back problems, nasal problems, eyesight issues, and all of that, but they look really good.
  • It's so important to reintroduce foods again, and make sure that you are feeding multiple species, multiple foods and you're rotating your foods, and you're eating like 50 different kinds of foods, 100 different kinds of foods, because that's what we did in the old days.

Show Highlights: 

Why should you get rid of Glyphosate?

16:00 Nathan

  • Modern wheat sometimes contains what are called desiccants, which we have referred to one of them as glyphosate. Glyphosates are commonly marketed under the name Roundup. Roundup is weed killer, we do apply it directly to our wheat supply in America.

We're eating the Chihuahua of wheat now.

19:58 Nathan

  • Think about who dogs’ ancestors were. They wolves righ? Now, think about a Chihuahua. Our modern wheat is literally called dwarf wheat. Our ancient wheat grew tall. I'm six two and it grew almost as tall as me sometimes.

What is Frankenstein food?

21:09 Nathan

  • Hybridization is very closely linked with GMO. Hybridization is going to be where we take wheat as a type of grass. So we're going to take this type of grass that grows really short and then we're going to crossbreed it with the natural normal wheat that grows really tall.

Just because it's organic, that doesn't mean it can't be heavily hybridized and heavily crossbred.

24:44 Juanique

  • So it's still hard to digest. It will still tear up your gut. It'll still cause a leaky gut, even though it's organic. Because now you don't have the glyphosate but you still have the high amount of phytic acid which is shelf stable, but not digestible.

Getting To Know Environmental Toxins

Show Summary: Tristin is back! And in this episode with Juanique, they discuss toxins and their burden on human bodies. They mentioned that humans have always been exposed to it since the beginning of time because of the harmful chemicals on pesticides, cosmetics, and perfumes that cause severe illnesses like cancer.

According to Juanique, our bodies should have a high functioning liver to deal with toxins back in the day, not today's toxins. Not feeding the liver with the nutritional food it needs causes dysfunction.  Nowadays, the invention of different unhealthy products with harmful chemical content puts our health at a greater risk.

They also shared a story about one of their clients who couldn't find a brand that produces organic spinach with no heavy metal. They said eating leafy greens helps feed your gut and gives you tons of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, but make sure to buy ethically sourced products.

Provo Health (provohealth10 - discount code)


3 Exceptional Highlights:

  • Prevention is so inexpensive compared to treatment.
  • Bio-organic produce doesn’t allow toxic pesticides when they grow the food. For meats, dairy and egg production, choose pasture raised, organic, grass fed, grass finished and ethically farmed.
  • If you're buying all the organic things, and then you're feeding your children really crappy food and you're not supporting their liver function, if we are doing all of these things, and we're just going nuts in the organic stuff department, and we are not eating leafy greens, drinking Collagen, taking B vitamins or eating foods with B vitamins like there's no point.

Show Highlights: 

The standard American diet doesn't give our livers any support to handle this toxic overload.

3:14 Juanique

  • Well, in the past hundred years, our exposure to toxins has increased by 2,000%.

The system doesn’t care about our health.

8:27 Tristin

  • This is not because it's just so difficult and complex. It's not because there's no Science behind it. What we're doing is very scientific. It's very research based.

Fen-phen was dissolving heart valves

17:57 Tristin

  • Fen-phen was a weight loss drug. They were using it like crazy in the 90s. And then they found out because of people reporting, that it was basically dissolving heart valves.

Chemicals that we are heavily exposed to

20:16 Juanique

  • But pesticides, guys, this is herbicides, fungicides, insecticides. rodenticides. These are largest like, this is one of the things we're so largely exposed to. And maybe you don't spray your house, like how many people have companies come and spray their homes for pests?

Babies are not safe from toxins

31:26 Juanique

  • In fact, research has shown that when newborns are born, they test the placenta. And the placenta is already laden with like 200 toxins and chemicals.

How To Use Essential Oils Properly With Cecilia Salvesen

Show Summary: In this episode, Juanique and Cecilia, talk about what Honestly Essential is and its purpose. They discussed why it is important to properly educate oneself about essential oils before inhaling, drinking, and using it directly onto the skin.

Because of misinformation, different skin conditions arise when using it. Lack of knowledge in understanding which one to use for pregnancy, mental health, stress, and pain separates you from its advantages and benefits and can also harm your health when abused.

The formulation of essential oils should not be complicated, it should be simple. It doesn’t have to contain all the antivirals, antibacterials, antiparasitics. There are proper measurements and limits of each of its content when creating it.

Description: This episode educates you about Essential Oils Formulation. It describes what happens when you use the wrong oil for the wrong reason, and it creates awareness about being vigilant in choosing what you buy and consume because not all Essential Oils are suitable for everyone.

Factors Affecting Male & Female Fertility

Show Summary: In this episode, Juanique and Katie Baker, talk about general guidelines on how to boost the fertility of women and men, which is the struggle of many couples. Many women are getting stressed because of their inability to get pregnant without knowing that male sperm is a massive contributor to it.

Juanique mentioned that a comprehensive meta-analysis of data collected between 1973 and 2011 shows that men from Western countries have a decrease in sperm production of more than fifty percent with no evidence of leveling off, which creates a slim chance of conception.

This problem may have been caused not only by what people eat as adults but also by their childhood food consumption patterns. Fat & protein demonization, exposure to pesticides/herbicides, and too much sugar intake are all significant contributing factors.

Description: This episode educates you about the advantages of knowing the short and long-term effects of every food you take, the importance of checking its label and getting rid of processed goods that are high in sugar. 

Illnesses are not only caused by your current food intake but your holistic lifestyle as a kid. Parents are encouraged to teach their children to live a happy, healthy and long life by training them as early as now.

Dr. Elia Gourgouris | How to Navigate A Crisis With The Happiness Doctor
The Covid-19 pandemic has been affecting people at an increasing rate. Drug and alcohol use, as well as suicide rates, have been at an all time high. This crisis has brought on a lot of fear in people’s lives. Due to social distancing, people are more distanced now than they have ever been in our time. The most vulnerable of our population are suffering the most. There are four personality types. The first is the victim who says “Why me?” The second is the critic. The one who criticizes whatever instructions they are given such as wear or don’t wear a mask. The third is the bystander. They are the ones who just watch, are frozen in fear, and do nothing. These first 3 personality types all have something in common, which is they offer no solutions. The fourth type is the navigator. They face issues with positivity. They practice self care, they’re aware of their environment, they’re aware of their surroundings, they’re adaptable and flexible, and then ultimately they take initiative and therefore are able to help others. You don’t want to be stuck in the first three types, but transition to type 4 after the first hour. We have to be able to adapt and get out of our comfort zone in order to get through a trial such as the Coronavirus. People will pay anything for fear and the media uses fear to drive sales and consumption. Unplugging from the media can help you adapt. His book is a masterclass in overcoming a crisis. Physicians weren’t trained for this situation and are oftentimes facing situations they’re not used to. Companies are having to adjust while bringing their employees in to work again. Dr. Elia comes in and helps these companies navigate through getting everything back to how it needs to be. Our job is to reach out to those around us and help them. There is always someone worse off than you. 7 keys for getting through a crisis: 1. Self Care 2. Awareness 3. Flexibility 4. Preparation 5. Initiative 6. Positive attitude 7. Kindness. It’s ok to be in the first three personality types, but just for an hour. Make sure you transition out of it and move forward in life.

“There is a big difference between danger and fear… Danger is real. If somebody came up to you and coughed in your face, that’s dangerous. And that’s not a political statement, that’s a factual medical statement. Fear on the other hand is not your friend… Fear is paralyzing. Fear is, you know, destabilizing. Let’s separate those two… let’s not live our lives through fear because that actually causes even more damage.” 16:43

Your Liver Needs a Reset | Detoxification and Liver Function
Juanique and Tristin discuss the importance of detoxification, why it can stop working very efficiently, what happens to you when it stops working efficiently, and how you can supercharge it to get yourself back on a healing pathway. The liver is an essential piece of hormone management. The liver has over 500 functions in the body. Our modern environment seems to be terrible at making us healthy. Many foods that we eat have plenty of added chemicals and pesticides that our bodies are not meant to digest. Living a heavily stressful lifestyle can affect your liver negatively. Not only are foods unhealthy for us in modern society, but are also highly addictive. Three phases of detoxification. Phase 1) Bioactivation. Liver sends out enzymes to tag the toxins in your system letting your body know they are present. Phase 2) Conjugation phase. Your liver adds little molecules to the tagged toxins, so they are either water soluble or fat soluble. Phase 3) Flush toxins out of your body through urination or defecation. In some people, their phase two is not working properly, so their body will try and find the nearest exit, which can often be the skin. Phase 2 is very dependent on the foods you eat. When we eat unhealthy foods, oily, sugary foods, we aren’t giving our bodies the necessary tools it needs to digest properly, so things begin to shut down. Either you’re eating things that can contribute to eliminating toxins, or you’re eating things that your body needs to eliminate. Fiber is absolutely essential to the digestive system. If you don’t defecate regularly, your body is marinating in your feces. You need to get rid of those toxins. The liver produces bile, and bile is an emulsifier for fats, which help us to absorb fatty acids. So things can get caught in a vicious cycle when the liver isn’t doing well. Liver damage can happen from unhealthy fats and sugars. Your ears can indicate issues with your liver, such as ringing. Many issues around your body can be linked back to your liver. Even your sex hormones can be negatively impacted. There are three parts to healing your liver. Part 1 is nutrition. Start your first week eliminating fruits to help the liver get back on its feet because it will lighten the workload on your liver. Our program comes with meal plans for you. The other thing you’re eliminating is other things that are putting a lot of strain on your liver, such as coffee. Part 2 is supplements. SP Cleanse is an incredibly food based liver nutrient rich product that is entirely food based. You will be taking 7 of these per day. Part 3 is lifestyle factors. How are you taking care of what is in your heart and in your mind? Emotional toxicity in your life can create stress, which directly affects your physical health. The liver is the anger organ. When you get angry, your liver is impacted. Connect with people. Go outside. Do what will improve your mood and mental health. If you want meaningful and fundamental changes in your health, then you have to make meaningful and fundamental changes in your whole life. Not just in your digestive health.

“A blood test is not going to tell you [if something is wrong with your liver]… Your liver enzymes only get elevated when there is already damage going on. It is not a measure of liver function. It’s a measure of liver damage. So just because your liver isn’t damaged doesn’t mean your liver is doing what it’s supposed to do. So if your liver enzymes look totally normal, but all of your inflammation markers like CRP, Homocysteine, Fibrinogen, Ferritin. If they’re all super elevated, there’s a decent chance there’s something goi

Why Doctors Dont Listen | Interview With Dr. John Sanders
We have a culture of doctors who just don’t listen. It’s partially their fault and partially not. He’s a family physician. Has done dermatology, pediatrics, chiropractic work. About 70% of his energy is put to a computer rather than to a patient and understanding them. We don’t have doctors running the hospitals. Instead they’re run by business men, which can be a conflict between doctors, who focus more on patients, and administrators, who focus more on the system. In some states it’s illegal for non physicians to own clinics. The corporations running the health systems tend to be more concerned about the investor than the patients. The typical doctor feels restraints of the system. The problem is there is no time to create trust. There are usually multiple patients waiting in the next room, so the doctor has no time to linger or listen to you for long. As doctors own their own practice, they will have more time to meet with patients and really find out what’s going on with each individual patient. We have to change the whole model in order to provide the care that people need. By giving quick diagnoses, doctors have made themselves obsolete in a way. The system prevents them from having a higher quality diagnosis. Each office visit pays the same whether the doctor addresses 2 things or 10 things, so in this way the system doesn’t support the patient. Most Docs are risk averse and not entrepreneurial. They need a better model to better help the patient. The art of medicine is spending more time with and taking better care of people. It makes the life of a doctor so much better and more fulfilling. It takes more than just a few to change the system. We need the middle class and upper class to bring about change. The middle class needs to invest in their local direct primary care (DPC) clinic. Every dollar you put towards your local DPC is money that will help them grow and therefore help your community. Dr. John Sanders doesn’t charge another copay if they haven’t gotten to the bottom of his patients’ problem, even if you have spent an hour trying to find the problem. Sometimes patients can even send him a text with a picture of the issue, and he can reply to them letting them know if it’s a bigger deal or not. America consumes 45% of the medication in the world, even though it only contains 5% of the overall population. DPC’s can prevent you from having too much medication shoved in your face.

Dr. Ronda Nelson and Pregnancy | Best Health Practice During Pregnancy
In this episode, we meet Dr. Ronda Nelson, an expert on keeping yourself healthy during pregnancy. Talking negatively about your body can affect your mental state, and therefore affect your physical health. What you say and what you say can negatively or positively affect your physical well being. Foods which contain folic acids and other vitamins are always better than supplements. Avoid synthetics. Her rule for her first trimester is to focus only on food rather than supplements. Find a prenatal that comes from food. Eat beets during the first trimester. Egg yolks are great for pregnancies. Postpartum depression comes from a lack of minerals in your brain. Using Bentonite clay will help a lot with indigestion. Salt can help prevent eclampsia during pregnancy. Vaginal microbiome is a mirror of the rectal microbiome. Change the PH of the vaginal canal by using coconut oil or using a probiotic inserted vaginally. Anything we consume or that occurs more than is in nature is too much.

Sustainable Food Production and the Argument for (Better) Meat | Diana Rodgers
On today’s episode, we talk with Diana Rodgers, registered dietitian ( We begin our conversation by talking about the myths surrounding the consumption of meat that are dispelled by Diana’s new book, Sacred Cow: The Case for (Better) Meat: Why Well-Raised Meat Is Good for You and Good for the Planet ( These are that meat is unhealthy, that meat is bad for the planet, and that the consumption of meat is unethical. She speaks about her life on an organic farm, and her observations about sustainable food production. We discuss how you can get nutrients out of meat that you can’t get out of plants, and how researched is misinterpreted and misused. In terms of nutrition, we talk about the evidence against meat (including The China Study published by BenBella Books, the same publisher of Sacred Cow), and how population studies that adjust for confounding factors are the most accurate. The findings of these studies show that links to meat and health defects like colon cancer are very weak. We talk about the “faux science” behind the EAT-Lancet Commission Summary report and common narratives that vilify eating meat. The average steer gets their diet from actual grains, but from grass and up-cycled materials, so the issue of “good meat, bad meat” isn’t as black and white as we think. We explain how beef is a low source of Omega 3’s, and how the argument for eating only better meat is less accurate from a nutritional standpoint than it is from an environmental standpoint. We discuss what questions we should be asking when it comes to buying meat. Diana refers us to,, and her own course, Meat Curious (, which includes the ultimate guide to ethical sourcing. We then talk about regenerative agriculture and the effect of biogenic methane on the environment, showing that well-managed cattle are a net carbon gain for our environment and figure part of the water cycle. Grazing animals are one of our best tools for mitigating climate change, because they sequester more carbon than they give off in greenhouse gasses, and most U.S. land is better suited for grazing than crop production, which produces a lot of greenhouse gasses. We talk about how the most significant ethical argument should be against the massive destruction of life from large-scale crop production. We talk about how we should push for well-managed herds of animals instead of barren land. We warn against uninformed bias impacting policy like “Meatless Mondays.” We talk about the bonus material that you can receive when you pre-order Sacred Cow before July 14th (!

Go Outside | How To Feel Better and Reduce Exposure to Indoor Toxins
In this episode, we talked to Ryan Blaser (, a specialist in EMF’s. He was featured on previous episodes, EMFs and Environmental Stressors and EMFs Revisited. We talk about all the synthetic materials that surround us in our homes, adversely affecting our health by off-gassing harmful frequencies. We focus on the harm that can come from artificial lighting. We discuss the adverse effects of too much exposure to light from screens, CFLs, and fluorescent lights, explaining how it has proven to cause sleep disorders, ADD and ADHD, depression, seizures, melanomas of the eye, etc. We talk about how artificial lights can alter our circadian rhythms, talking about their potential influence on adrenal fatigue, cortisol production, and mitochondrial function, as demonstrated by the 2pm slump. We give suggestions for reducing exposure to artificial blue light and getting more exposure to natural lights. We talk about ways to reduce screen time or make it more healthy (through screen time apps or apps like We discuss addictions to digital media because of artificial, immediate, endorphin-producing rewards. We talk about how social media and gaming are shaping social interactions. We talk about the rewards of outdoor activity, as well as the benefits of media fasts (including how we have included it in our liver reset program at Provo Health). We urge parents to consider the development of the brain chemistry of your kids, and limit their screen time accordingly. We invite you to keep the windows open for a couple hours every day to flush out stale air and harmful particulates. We give you an important tip to open the window and use the exhaust fan when cooking with a gas stove to reduce carbon monoxide exposure. We advise that you change your HVAC filters at least every 3-4 months, and look for a quality filter with a MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) rating of at least 13. We recommend that you avoid all chemical or synthetic fragrances like Febreze. We recommend you look up and review the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) of all household products you use. We discuss how, while some are only concerned with high concentrations of toxic ingredients, the micro doses we receive across all the synthetic products are making us sicker than we’ve ever been before. Products are never tested in combinations like these -- only individually. We talk about titanium dioxide, used in beauty products, and even supplements, and how it can cause gut inflammation and other diseases. We warn that synthetic materials can be endocrine-disruptors, stunting growth in children and causing infertility and hormonal imbalances in growing people. We talk about the micro toxins that can come from molds, and how easily mold can develop in our homes.

And when we use these unnatural lights -- like CFLs that flicker, and they have liquid mercury in them -- they put off EMSs. And then fluorescent lights the same way. That’s a big one.

Educating Yourself to Help Your Children | Patient Participation in Health Care

Today, we talk with Rachel, one of our clients, who has been fighting to learn about her son, Boston’s unique medical condition, and advocating hard for proper medical diagnosis and treatment for him. It began with two lumps on his neck and face, which started to swell and pus. She shares the development of Boston’s condition, including how her pediatrician’s recommendation of antibiotics made no change, and how, seeing her son’s condition worsen, she tried to boost his immune system, change his diet, and search for more answers. She went to a naturopath, who figured it was a lymphatic issue, and first recommended a homeopathic approach to drain and rebound the lymph system. When that didn’t work, the naturopath recommended antibiotics, which were also ineffective. Rachel also cut dairy and gluten out of Boston’s diet. Finally, when she was a new naturopath, she learned about the option of culturing the lumps, and discovered that it was a staph infection. As she continued looking for a solution, she didn’t want to continue with antibiotics, because they had already failed twice, and this pushed her to look for natural treatments that reach the source of the issue without compromising his immune system in the long term. That’s where she found Provo Health, where a DNA hair test showed the unique weaknesses in his immune system, and they were able to begin their treatment with the autoimmune protocol. He was also put on the stealth pathogens protocol, and they saw more change over 6 weeks than there were over a year. The inflammation has gone down and there are just scars left. We talk about the personal change that occurred in Rachel over the course of her journey towards health and healing, allowing her to adapt to the overhaul of her lifestyle that came with it. We emphasize the importance of giving yourself time and grace, so that a change to a healthier lifestyle is at a proper pace that doesn’t add to anxiety. We recognize the importance of a supportive community, focusing on the positive and avoiding shaming when striving for a healthier lifestyle. We invite you to look into our cookbook, which you can order here: We then discuss how we should all be active participants in health care as opposed to passive recipients. We talk about how Provo Health can help with all these things.

Staying Safe in the Sun | Health Benefits of Sun Exposure and How To Avoid Sun Damage
Today’s episode is all about sun safety, debunking myths and promoting the healthiest practices for keeping safe during hot summer days. We begin our conversation by discussing the history behind why the sun is commonly viewed as dangerous and detrimental to our health, focusing on how modern medicine has blamed the sun for causing cancer and melanoma. We explain how this fear of cancer from the sun is unfounded and illogical, and how it is more important to focus on how much our body benefits from the sun by increasing vitamin D levels and strengthening our immune system. We take you through the things that actually cause melanoma and skin cancer, such as irregular sun exposure and improper filtering of artificial light, as well as the blocking of the endocannabinoid system and endorphin pathways, which are both stimulated by being out in the sun. Another is tissue calcium depletion, and that leads us into a discussion of the best ways to supplement calcium, as well as the ingredients to efficient calcium absorption. We explain how sunblock is not the most effective preventative measure, because it only filters out UVB rays, whereas UVA rays are the ones that cause cancer. We also talk about how it can limit vitamin D absorption, and point out that, while it is good for preventing burns in the moment, it is not a long-term solution because people have been using sunblock for years and skin cancer rates are still going up. We instead recommend working your way up to longer periods of sun exposure, as well as the use of an infrared sauna or a Sperti Vitamin D lamp ( We also recommend limiting your exposure to artificial light by spending more time outside, using blue light filters, and timing your sleep with the rising and setting of the sun. We talk about the best supplements to help your body prevent sun damage (you can find a list here: We recommend supplementing Vitamin E, Vitamin C, collagen, and using chlorophyll complex (watch out, it stains green!) and USF ointment (the paste form of Cataplex® F).

The Dangers of Glyphosate | How to Limit Your Exposure to Harmful Pesticides
In today’s episode, we talk about glyphosate, which is a systemic herbicide and crop desiccant. We begin our discussion by sharing a negative review of our show and discuss the questions it brings up about medical authority. We reaffirm that our platform is to firmly advocate medical freedom and personal choice when it comes to their own health. We then encourage anyone who believes in freedom or has been the victim of oppression (at the hands of medical professionals or otherwise) has the obligation to listen to the voices crying for freedom as part of the Black Lives Matter Movement. We talk about the effects of the Mansfield Amendment in 1969, which took away all of the neutral funding set aside by the government and military for 3rd party scientists to research health topics. We explain how this has introduced bias (most of the time subconscious) into the reports and findings of scientists in the favor of the agendas of those who are now funding them. We discuss the evidence for harmful effects of glyphosate and all the ways it can be manifest in what we consume. One example is that glyphosate affects pituitary functions in the body by disrupting manganese levels. We then focus on how you can reduce your exposure to glyphosate, inviting you to find out which foods have the highest exposure to pesticides and other chemicals (search for the “dirty dozen” on As part of this, we give you a list of foods sprayed mostly with glyphosate, which includes a lot of grains. We emphasize the importance of buying organic and growing your own foods. We invite you to follow Zach Bush (, or go ask questions on or to learn more about this and similar subjects.

Why do I have this?’ And, in a nutshell, I say, well, aging and inflammatory foods. Glyphosate is an inflammatory molecule on these inflammatory foods.” 27:37

The Antinutrients Strike Back | Choosing and Preparing Foods to Improve Digestion
Today’s episode is all about antinutrients. We define them as substances found in foods that cause problems in the body sometimes -- meaning, they are not always harmful to everyone. We talk more in-depth about the food sources and potential harmful effects of specific antinutrients such as Phytic Acid, Lectins, Goitrogens, and Oxalates. We discuss how to prepare foods high in antinutrients to reduce digestive issues. We give you tips on how to adjust your diet if you are particularly sensitive to one of these antinutrients, as well as how to determine whether you do have a sensitivity. We give options for those who have high sensitivities to many antinutrients, such as using certain diets -- like autoimmune paleo and elemental -- as stepping stones to rebalance.

Information Censorship and Health Freedom
Most episodes we talk about healing the body and at times we also talk about healing the mind. Today we talk about healing our country.

We talk about how we can try to fix the system rather than blaming those that are putting their life on the line. We also talk about how our health system is rather broken right now.
