High Intensity Health with Mike Mutzel, MS

In this live replay, we discuss the oft forgotten role the liver plays offers those who embrace a low-carb, ketogenic style diet.

But for many folks, especially those with environmental toxin overload or fatty liver (NASH), the liver’s compromised so thus can’t make ketones as effectively.

We discuss the nuances and considerations in these applications one should follow.

Here’s a few key time stamps:

05:56 It’s Not Just About the Fuel: Of course a ketogenic diet restricts sugar consumed by the cancer. There are other side effects like a reduction in angiogenesis, a major hallmark of cancer. The expanding blood vessels in her eye are no longer visible on scans, the tumor in the optic nerve is gone without leaving scar tissue and damage done by the traditional therapies have healed as well.

11:42 Insulinogenic Properties of Proteins:

17:06 Meal Frequency: Patricia was a grazer, but shifted to 3 meals. After this, she shifted to intermittent fasting. Her fasting window is generally

16 to 18 hours.

24:39 Carbs and Performance:

31:19 Menstrual Cycle and Keto-Adaptation: P

36:25 Tracking Sleep:

41:30 Tracking Ketones: TKI (glucose/ketone index) is comprised of glucose divided by ketones. When you are ketogenic for therapeutic reasons, you should ideally 2 or 1 and under. She finds that stress and sleep have a larger impact upon glucose levels than food.

43:06 The Power of Community: Community cancels out a lot of the negative effects of poor diet and lifestyle. Find your tribe. 4

5:20 Exogenous Ketones:

48:14 Ketosis Impact upon Chemotherapy or Radiation Therapy:

54:05 Ketogenic Diet, Another Tool in the Toolbox:

58:46 Patricia’s Favorite Herb or Botanical: B vitamins are her choice, since it is a personal struggle of hers. It would keep the energy up.

59:49 Patricia’s Morning Routine: Her kids are the focus of her morning. She does not look at her phone. After taking her children to school, she walks, listens to podcasts and does Tibetan yoga. At work, she tries to eat at about 11 or 12.

01:01:29 Patricia’s Elevator Speech: We need more money for research and we need to be faster at implementing the results of research. Focus on the science of the day rather than lobbyists.

01:20 Dr. Aujla’s Nutrition Journey:
06:13 The Impetus for His Recipes:
07:11 Whole Turmeric Root: Turmeric contains hundreds of different curcuminoids and other plant chemicals.  It is near impossible to gather all the anti-inflammatory effect, for example, into a single pill. BCM-95 supplement does mixes the essential oils with the curcuminoids. Use whole ingredients as much as possible. Adding pepper to turmeric root increases the bioavailability of the curcuminoids. Dr. Aujla also uses a lot of coriander and fennel in his recipes.

18:10 Future of Healthcare:
19:27 Dr. Aujla’s Favorite Desert Island Food: His choice is purple sprouting broccoli. It is found in the UK and is one of the most phytonutrient dense crucifers. It contains sulforaphane, anthocyanins, other disease fighting chemicals, and lots of vitamins, including vitamin C. It is versatile and tastes great.
20:46 Dr. Aujla’s Top Exercise: Squat jumps get your heartrate up and fires on all muscle types. They can be done anywhere. You don’t need weights and it is versatile.
21:15 Dr. Aujla’s Morning Routine: First thing in the morning, he drinks water. He does a 25 to 30 minute HIIT session, yoga or flow. He has a high protein/high fat breakfast with fiber. Then he meditates for 10 to 15 minutes. He feels tired if he doesn’t exercise in the morning.
23:11 Dr. Aujla’s Elevator Pitch: Phytonutrient density is key. Make sure people have colors and herbs on their plates.
