  • E35: All You Need to Know About Hormones with Dr. Anna Cabeca
    Dr. Anna Cabeca is committed to supporting women to thrive physically, emotionally, sexually, and even spiritually as they go through the natural and inevitable life shift of menopause. Dr. Anna Cabeca has spent years developing and perfecting a complete suite of life-changing products and programs. Everything Dr. Anna creates is part of her daily routine and is based on exhaustive research and the never-ending quest to find solutions that help women reclaim their vibrancy, sexuality, health, and happiness. In this episode, Dr. Anna explains what happens to women after forty when they have insulin resistance. Insulin, cortisol, estrogen, and progesterone influence each other like a spider web. In our mid-thirties, progesterone levels start to decline. Insulin and cortisol will also play a role in this decline. Progesterone is our calming hormone; it is predominant in the second half of our menstrual cycle. It is also the primary hormone in pregnancy - protecting our brains, bones, and breasts. Estrogen is also an essential hormone. It’s vital for our eyes, bones, and glucose uptake in the brain. In menopause, women get brain fog. If we aren’t able to utilize glucose because of depleting estrogen, that explains the brain fog. To fix this, women should start using ketones for fuel. That way, they are not as dependent on the estrogen circulating in the body. After menopause, many women start to gain weight. As our metabolism shifts, it creates a weight gain. For women, it becomes crucial to get ahold of your hormone levels to nip weight gain in the bud. Because we are living in artificial environments, we need to arm ourselves with detoxification. Detoxing will help our bodies get improved sleep, relax, and generally make us feel good. Then, Dr. Anna discusses the hormones behind women’s sex drives. We commonly think of estrogen as the female hormone. However, testosterone is also essential for women’s sex drives. Furthermore, DHEA will assist with improving sex life by enhancing orgasms, desire, and libido. Also, optimum levels of DHEA are associated with low levels of cancer. However, women struggle with DHEA because it starts to decline in their twenties – plus, DHEA is depleted during stressful times. Stay tuned as Dr. Anna reveals the inspiration behind some of her products like Keto-Green and Mighty Maca. Plus, she explains the importance of care in the healing process. Key Takeaways: [ 1:20 ] The challenges of insulin resistance in women over forty [ 5:35 ] The importance of estrogen   [ 7:00 ] The effect of our hormones on weight [ 10:20 ] Utilizing hormone replacement therapies   [ 18:40 ] The hormones behind women’s sex drives [ 24:00 ] All about Keto-Green [ 29:15 ] Learn more about The Hormone Fix [ 31:15 ] Advice for people with diabetes Mentioned in this Episode: Dr. Anna’s Website: Keto-Green 16: The Girlfriend Doctor Podcast: Keto-Green Products: Mighty Maca: The Hormone Fix: Dr. Anna’s Instagram: Dr. Anna’s Facebook: Dr. Anna’s Twitter: Enjoyed the Podcast?

  • E34: The Link Between Autoimmunity and Type 2 Diabetes with Dr. Brad Gorski
    Dr. Brad Gorski has a passion for helping others eliminate autoimmunity. People with autoimmune disease suffer from symptoms for years before they get answers. Eliminating his own autoimmune disease led him to a system of customized health coaching that is impacting those with autoimmune problems. We are in the infancy of understanding autoimmunity. As far as the ties between autoimmunity and diabetes, Dr. Brad says that once you develop type 2 diabetes, you have a high chance of developing a thyroid issue. Our nutrition is terrible, and it’s damaging our gut. In order to get well, we need to have our nutrition in place. To help decipher your inflammation, look at your blood test and check your C-Reactive Protein (CRP) numbers. These protein levels should be under one, according to Dr. Brad. If you have high levels of CRP, that means there are toxin issues. Also, understand your omega-6 and omega-3 ratio – it should be about 4:1 depending on your risk factors. Fat is necessary to buffer inflammation. Food is not always the best medicine. We all do not need the same nutrition plan. Our immunity is based on our gut bacteria, and all of our gut bacteria is unique. So, it doesn’t make sense that one nutrition plan would work for everyone equally. You can be eating foods that are “good,” yet they are making you sick. To heal his body, Dr. Brad used fasting. To help heal the gut, you can start with little types of fasting. Within four days of fasting, you can regenerate your entire immune system. Fasting will change gut bacteria and immunity. Plus, our body needs that energy to heal. Dr. Brad uses fasting with almost all of his patients. When you’re autoimmune, you want to rule out toxins first. For Dr. Brad, mold pushed him over the edge. Heavy metals are another thing that your body can be sensitive to; they will continuously stress the system and build up over time. Toxins will bioaccumulate and eventually wreak havoc on the body. Stay tuned as Dr. Brad gives his advice for someone with type 2 diabetes. Key Takeaways: [ 0:40 ] About Dr. Brad Gorski [ 7:50 ] Autoimmune components of diabetes   [ 11:00 ] How to decrease inflammation   [ 15:40 ] Testing omega levels [ 18:00 ] Food is not always the best medicine [ 19:50 ] How to heal the gut [ 23:20 ] Healing autoimmune conditions   [ 31:30 ] Advice for someone with type 2 diabetes Mentioned in this Episode: Elite Family Chiropractic: SpectraCell: Dr. Brad’s Website: Find Dr. Brad Twitter: Instagram: Facebook: Email: [email protected] Enjoyed the Podcast?

  • E33: Balance Your Hormones For Metabolic Health with Dr. Mariza Snyder
    Dr. Mariza Snyder is a functional practitioner, women's health expert and the author of seven books: The #1 National Bestselling book, The Essential Oils Hormone Solution, focuses on balancing hormones with the power of essential oils. Other bestselling books are: The Smart Mom's Guide to Essential Oils and The DASH Diet Cookbook. When looking for tools to reduce stress levels and deal with mood swings, Dr. Mariza found something to help on her journey. That's when she found out about the benefit of essential oils. You can use oils for sleep, energy, and to curb cravings. The oils helped fuel the habits that Dr. Mariza created. Essential oils have powerful therapeutic properties. For instance, peppermint oil can significantly decrease any sort of craving. If you can curb the craving by breathing in a scent, you will have a successful tool on your hands to help support your goals. Another powerful oil is lavender. Lavender will lower cortisol levels and mediate our stress response. Sugar is a big deal in our culture. From a young age, we get rewarded with sugar. However, we know that sugar is addictive. It acts very similar to cocaine. Plus, sugar is damaging to our bodies. Addiction is anything that you leverage in a way to self-soothe. That's why we see social media and shopping addictions. We use sugar to block or suppress our primary feelings of stress. We need to be mindful and understand our addictions. If we are self-soothing with caffeine and sugar, think about why. Be aware of your habits - are you happy with your habits? At some point during the day, are you thinking about self-soothing? We shouldn't have little "prizes" throughout the day. For instance, Dr. Mariza used to drink a diet coke every single day. Ask yourself, "why?" It's crucial to look at cortisol. Our brains are hard-wired to be in fight or flight mode. When our minds become hyper regulated, our body shuts down and goes into survival mode. Today, this can happen all of the time - we are firing off these hormones constantly. When cortisol shoots up, it suppresses our willpower.  Key Takeaways: [ 0:55 ] Why Dr. Mariza uses essential oils     [ 6:40 ] Why sugar is such a big deal [ 18:45 ] The importance of mindfulness   [ 21:10 ] The hormones to look out for [ 30:00 ] Advice for people with diabetes and obesity   Mentioned in this Episode: Dr. Mariza’s Website: Dr. Mariza’s Books: Dr. Mariza’s Podcast: Get Your Free Guide: Follow Dr. Mariza Instagram: Facebook: YouTube: Pinterest: Enjoyed the Podcast?

  • E32: How To Create A Healthy Metabolism? with Dr. Elena Zinkov
    Dr. Elena Zinkov has a background as a competitive athlete – that introduced her to the world of sports medicine and how nutrition impacts performance. From there Dr. Elena grew passionate about finding the most innovative and evidence-based techniques for pain management. Now, she is best known for helping busy men and women regain their vibrant lifestyle after years of doctor’s appointments and testing with no results. Through her signature program, Dr. Elena helps her clients reach their full potential through optimal health. In this episode, Dr. Elena explains how she looks at type 2 diabetes from a naturopathic perspective. First, she looks at the cardiovascular system and the hosts of issues contributing to blood sugar regulation. Next, a naturopath looks at lifestyle, stress levels, and dietary habits. It's essential to look at the whole person, including their family, work, and living environment. When someone does have type 2 diabetes, it's time to figure out how to intervene. Some of the ways you can intervene are through diet, exercise, lifestyle, supplements, and hormone replacement therapy. It's essential to treat from the whole person's perspective because it is a lifestyle disease. There are so many things you can do from a natural perspective before seeking insulin. At a naturopathic clinic, Dr. Elena collects a basic set of labs. Anytime there is a blood dysregulation, Dr. Elena includes a thyroid panel, sex hormone panel, nutrient analysis, and cortisol. Then, Dr. Elena has an in-depth conversation, and she comes up with a grand master plan for her patients. After following the plan, Dr. Elena will make adjustments as necessary after the first few months. When Dr. Elena sees patients who have tried loads of different diets to lose weight, she sees a problem with the metabolism. Sometimes, these patients need to utilize time-restrictive eating and exercising. With these minor changes, people can start seeing metabolic change. If that's not working, then the patient may need thyroid medication. Again, if that doesn't work, then patients should look at it as a hypothalamic problem. Later, Dr. Elena explains the mindset shift that needs to happen on a health journey. It can take years to cultivate specific skills. Faith is a massive component of wellness. In the past few years, Dr. Elena brings a lot more faith-based conversations to her practice. She likes to talk about what is keeping her patients going - wellness is a journey. Stay tuned as we talk about navigating the health journey during COVID. Plus, Dr. Elena gives her advice to patients with type 2 diabetes. Key Takeaways: [ 1:10 ] Looking at type 2 diabetes from a naturopathic perspective [ 5:30 ] Level of intervention for type 2 diabetes   [ 12:25 ] Assessing patients at a naturopathic clinic [ 16:15 ] The complexities behind blood sugar dysfunction   [ 19:20 ] Strategies for weight-loss resistance patients   [ 31:25 ] Changing our mindset when it comes to wellness   [ 33:45 ] Navigating the health journey during COVID [ 40:25 ] Advice for patients with type 2 diabetes   Mentioned in this Episode: Dr. Elena’s Website: Untethered Soul: Follow Dr. Elena: Instagram: Facebook: Enjoyed the Podcast?
