Key Takeaways:


02:03 Personalizing exercise for diabetics/metabolic disease
03:55 Your body needs stimulation that is specific, science based and directed to get the results you desire.
04:55 Building Strength and Losing Fat: If you can't handle your own body weight, don't add external weights.
08:37 Focus upon movements that transfer into real life.
14:49 We need to do more pullups.
17:57 Your body is an integrated tool
19:19 How much resistance training? How much aerobics? Be specific and focus on reinforcing your daily activities. Cardio at the appropriate time and percentage does not take away from your strength gains.
24:02 Address endocrine imbalances before embarking upon resistance training. Weight lifting, done correctly, will have a positive impact upon hormones.
25:50 Sleep is a primary problem solver.
28:53 Building muscle: Duration doesn't equal benefit.
31:43: It isn't just about the training. It is also about the steps you take to keep the training beneficial.
32:26 Ed's dietary philosophy
39:44 The gym is only a small part of fixing the problem. It has to be a 360 approach to optimize the individual. There is a big difference between normal and optimal.

“There’s no difference between a low-fat diet vs. low-carb diet,” say the headlines. This was in response to a Stanford study published in the journal JAMA yesterday.

We review the detail in this episode!

Today’s Show: Low-Carb vs. Low-Fat: Lessons Learned from Stanford’s DIETFITS Study

Let's review a few key details about the weight-loss intervention design aspect of the study that, unfortunately, are not suitably detailed in the abstract or even the full text PDF in JAMA. One has to download the 2017 paper to get some understanding about the details of the dietary recommendations and guidelines between the two groups—the low-fat cohort and low-carb cohort—being studied.

Bill Curtis was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease over 17 years ago.

Fasting, exercise and the ketogenic diet has helped to preserve his mental faculties, balance and motor control.

More details about today's show: 

Having studied with ketone pioneer Richard Veech for the past decade, Bill understands the interworkings of how ketones affect the brain and body.

In this chat, he'll share with you the details, including:

- How fasting affects Parkinson's disease symptoms
- A three-tiered approach to help folks with neurocognitive disorders regain function
- The main way ketones are thought to affect the brain and body

 Key Takeaways:

01:55 Journalist Bill Curtis has had Parkinson's since 2000. As predicted, he was dramatically affected 10 years later with advanced Parkinson's. Now the only symptom he has is a slight tremor.
04:48 Within about 2 hours of eating carbs, Bill will begin to shake and feel rigid. He doesn't get the full on symptoms he had before.
07:38 Bill was in an exercise program. In an attempt to enhance the effects of the program, he fasted overnight and had nothing for breakfast before the workout. He found it alleviated his profound fatigue.
11:27 Fasting helped with the fatigue, but there were many more symptoms that were not reversed. Bill continued researching.
13:02 Bill exercised fasted every day for a year. He lost weight, but eventually, it stopped working. As you become fit, you make fewer ketones.
15:04 Dr. Veech suggested that Bill try Bulletproof Coffee after the night fast. Nearly all of his symptoms abated at the end of the first hour.
19:36 The military has been experimenting with Dr. Veech's ketone ester for radiation exposure.
22:26 A therapeutic ketogenic diet is one with 80 to 90% of your food as fat. Bill has devised 4 levels of ketosis.
30:33 Within the first 10 days of taking ketone ester, Bill no longer had urinary incontinence.
32:07 There is data that an elevation of uric acid it will delay the onset of Parkinson's. If you have Parkinson's, and your uric acid levels are higher, you decline more slowly.
36:14 BHB allows you to make more dopamine, serotonin, adrenaline, noradrenaline and nitric oxide.
38:00 In advanced Parkinson's neurotransmitters are negatively impacted. With ketosis, you are making serotonin, noradrenaline, adrenaline, dopamine and nitric oxide synthase.
38:52 Every antioxidant has to be recharged with an electron from NADPH, directly or indirectly.
39:50 Beta hydroxybutyrate raises NADPH levels using isocitrate dehydrogenase in the cytoplasm, outside of the mitochondria.
42:24 NADPH levels in the mitochondria does not correlate with NADPH levels in the cytosol. We should measure the cytosolic NADPH.
44:09 NADPH voltage is dependent upon the relative concentrations. More equals more resilience.
48:52 Dismutase does not get its electrons from the battery. It does this by taking 2 molecules of superoxide, oxidizing one and reducing the other.
52:59 You have the ability to use ketones to restore ischemia-reperfusion and turn off inflammation.
54:08 NADPH controls inflammation.
55:04 Dr. Veech found that treating Alzheimer's mouse models with beta hydroxybutyrate kept them from accumulating beta amyloid deposits.
58:03 Bill believes that TBI will respond very well to BHB, as evidenced by people close to him with head injuries.
01:02:41 Bill has created an online course to help people help each other. You need a cook, a coach, a nutritionist and a doctor.
01:04:36 Bill must still take his Parkinson's medications.

Gas, bloating and brain fog after meals is no fun for anyone.
Less GI distress is a side benefit that’s been reported by many keto dieters after they reduced carbohydrate intake.


(And since many health problems start in the gut, this is, well, a pretty attractive aspect of the ketogenic diet.)


Today’s expert explains how it all works: pathogenic gut bacteria and yeast thrive on easy-to-digest, high-glycemic carbs.


Drop the carbs, the bugs have nothing to eat … so the gas and bloating often go away.


Grace Liu, PharmD, discusses how you can further bolster your digestion and gut health with polyphenols, probiotics and getting to know all about your poop habits.


She also dives into sex hormone and adrenal balancing tips—this is a good one.

 

Key Timestamps:


02:02 High levels of LPS/Lipopolysaccharide in the blood correlate with many diseases.
03:20 Probiotics have a killing effect upon LPS. Dr Liu has a probiotic which contains anti-parasitic, anti-pathogenic and anti-fungal effects.
03:56 The LPS from enterobacter and gammaproteobacteria are 10,000 fold more pro-inflammatory than our good gut flora.
05:26 There is also a beneficial form of E.coli, which is a probiotic.
08:57 Some gene mutations influence gut bacteria.
13:34 Dr. Liu uses 23 and Me for genetic testing and then uses Sterling Hill’s Sterling’s App, which segments different categories of health and what the mutations are.
15:07 SIBO/small intestinal bacterial overgrowth can be triggered in infancy.
16:25 Antibiotics cause fungal/yeast overgrowth in our guts..
16:53 To make permanent changes in your gut, you need to change the terrain.
17:29 The ABC bacterium are an anchor: akkermansia, bifidobacterium longum, and clostridiales bacterium. Centenarians have these.
18:04 Anything bitter and barky feeds our gut flora.
19:02 Dr. Liu’s SIBO protocols are very low dose and combined with antifungals, and possibly anti-viral for those with autoimmunity.
20:25 Bifidobacterium longum has a monosaccharide shunt. It turns fructose into EPS/exopolysaccharide as a special food for the rest of your gut flora.
24:38 We should strive to have the digestion of our ancestors.
27:11 Moms with celiac have children with celiac. Their breastmilk is devoid of bifidobacterium longum and there is no diversity in lactobacilli.
29:59 Glyphosate is an oxalate. At a cellular level when they crystalize they damage mitochondria, organelles, and soft tissue.
34:47 Our female ancestors were foragers and ate frequently, receiving at glycolic effect from the environment.
36:25 Everyone should do hormone blood testing.
37:16 The Schwarzbein Principle by Dr. Diana Schwarzbein has been used by Dr. Liu to help heal her own metabolism.
38:20 Fertility Physics
39:33 High Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG) blocks thyroid hormone, testosterone and progesterone receptors.
42:14 Synthetic emulsifiers in supplements, and now in some coconut oil, damage your microvilli.
43:35 The Bristol stool chart: Many conditions, like cancer and autoimmune disease, correlate to our stool pattern.
45:45 Dr. Liu uses a dashboard called Heads Up Health with her clients.
48:26 Dr. Liu’s Desert Island Nutrient: Her choice is thuja, a coniferous tree from the cypress family.
50:41 Dr. Liu’s Elevator Pitch: Put gardens in all elementary schools.
