High Intensity Health with Mike Mutzel, MS

Paul Anderson, ND, shares insights from his 25-year career in treating complex diseases with natural remedies, with a focus on cancer.

We discuss exciting new research about how natural therapies affect cancer development and progression and how the once chemo-and-radiation-centered field of oncology is embracing lower side effect therapies: keto, fasting and immune modulators.

03:24 Dr. Anderson’s travel health strategies.
05:03 Breast cancer recurrence dropped with fasting
05:21 The biochemistry changes after 3 to 4 months of intermittent fasting of 13 to 14 hours, even in non-cancer patients.
07:29 Intermittent fasting.
09:02 Hospitals are embracing intermittent fasting around chemo
11:15 People who respond best to natural treatment are those who tend to the basics and take care of their overall health.
13:42 Chemotherapy has evolved in the past 5 to 10 years to be more targeted.
15:08 Some targeted chemotherapies work well, others have deadly side effects or cancer coming back stronger.
16:10 The trophoblastic theory is the cancer stem cell theory. Once the main cancer tumor has been destroyed, the cancer stem cells step back and wait.
18:27 The more we quiet inflammation and regulate blood sugar, the less likely it is that cancer stem cells will activate.
19:19 Secondary prevention includes and goes beyond diet and lifestyle. Other issues must be addressed: immune issues, chronic infections in the lymphatic system, toxin burdens, and hormonal aberrations.
24:36 Aberrant thoughts affect the immune system.
28:03 Cancer stem cells stay with the blueprint and the rest are the soldier cancer cells that we see. The stem cells, are generally not affected by the treatment that destroys the soldiers.
29:53 Cancer stem cells have the ability to recruit and program normal cells. The harder we hit the cancer soldier stem cells with chemo radiation, the more the stem cells back away from the area and wait.
31:06 The strategy is to keep cancer stem cells happy and quiet.
33:44 A very low carb or keto diet was a common link in cancer patients that did the best with their therapies, longer remissions or no recurrence.
37:13 Research has found that integrative cancer therapies extended lifespan, compared to only standard therapy.
41:29 Work with at least two practitioners to get many options and varied care.
49:07 By the time we can see a cancer tumor with imaging, it has been growing slowly for 5 to 10 years or longer.
51:00 Prescreening tests are getting better. Next generation testing, which still has some gaps, looks for things like circulating cancer cells.
52:06 Some traditional testing of non-specific inflammatory markers show metabolic shifts to an inflammatory milieu or a milieu that shows Warburg Effect.
58:38 Thermography, when done correctly, can detect and track cancer.
01:03:28 Dr. Anderson tests all cancer survivors for chronic infection, including the family of HHV, mycoplasma, c pneumoniae and more.
01:05:21 People who eat mushrooms regularly have lower rates of certain cancers. Some cancers that do not respond to anything else, will respond to mushrooms.
01:10:45 High protein intake and low quality protein sources can bring you out of cancer fighting mode and out of ketosis. Poor quality protein, and food in general, can bring toxins into your body.
01:14:18 The ideal morning routine for preventing cancer starts with a quiet mind and centering. Exercise in the morning for the brain and body. Hydrate.
01:18:27 Dr. Anderson would choose curcumin as his desert island supplement. Curcumin levels out cytokines and triggering molecules.
01:22:33 Dr. Anderson’s elevator pitch: keep people from developing cancer to is to get them to do the things that bring their metabolism back to its intended balance.

04:25 We have to pee ourselves into good health. Dehydration effects energy, blood sugar and mental equity.
05:16 Get good sleep and develop good sleep habits. Every hour of sleep before midnight is the equivalent to 3 hours of sleep after midnight.
06:09 Focus upon getting deep sleep.
07:21 Focus upon digestive hygiene/environment. Eating is part of our parasympathetic nervous system.
08:32 Meat has many benefits, but you need to digest it well. It takes a lot of stomach acid to digest meat.
11:06 Chew your food slowly and well. It helps you absorb more micronutrients from your food.
12:39 Eating is inflammatory. Higher micronutrient absorption with less food gives you less stress and inflammation in your body.
15:09 The dawn effect is when your fasting blood sugar is high in the morning. It is normal for many people on a ketogenic diet.
16:08 Regular bowel movements can be a challenge for those of us on a ketogenic diet. This increases our inflammatory state. Food needs to leave within a 12 to 24 hour window.
17:35 You will need more salt on a low carb diet because your body excretes more sodium/salt. Salt also helps regulate bowel motility.
18:52 Drinking a gallon of filtered water by noon, Dr. Jockers finds that it clears out his bowels and flushes out inflammation from his joints and liver.
19:49 Magnesium is one of the most common nutrient deficiencies, especially if we are stressed. If you have blood sugar imbalances, you will use more magnesium.
21:12 Your thyroid probably produces enough T4. Issues often occur with the conversion of T4 into active T3.
21:45 To address the thyroid, we need to address the liver, the gut and inflammation. Thyroid hormone is important for gut motility.
22:26 Backed up bowels stresses the liver, making the conversion from T4 to T3 more challenging. Liver is the site of ketogenesis.
24:44 Find the right carb cycling ratio for you on your ketogenic diet.
25:00 After stress reduction and other things have been put into place, Dr. Jockers starts his patients with a month of low carb. Then they experiment with carbs.

So why longevity?

Well...slowing down the aging process is top of mind for many nowadays.

From Botox to surgery, calorie-restricted diets and stem-cells, many people are trying to bring back the past version of themselves.

But do these practices help us live happier, longer and more meaningful lives?

Film-maker Jason Prall traveled the world to see how vibrant centenarians (100-year-olds) eat, live and go about their lives.

(Not surprisingly, Juvederm, Botox and growth hormone weren’t used by any of the 100-year-olds he caught on camera.)

In this chat you’ll learn more about:

- Common food and dietary patterns amongst centenarians throughout the globe
- Why high-carb Costa Ricans stay lean and vibrant into their late 90s
- The top non-nutrition factors (light exposure, social connections, etc) that affect longevity

-------------------------------------- Key Timestamps----------------------------------

03:52 An anti-ageing strategy views ageing as a problem. There is a lot of good that comes from ageing.
04:39 Longevity is a mechanism for preserving and prolonging health.
07:27 The centenarians interviewed were not focused at all upon their ageing appearance. They had a deeper appreciation of ageing.
10:06 Our lifestyles are detrimental to longevity.
12:43 Eat organic, local, real, whole foods.
14:01 Find your purpose. It is almost always bigger than yourself. A church or spiritual practice gets you together with like-minded people in community.
15:55 Our social environment results in epigenetic switches/changes.
16:17 Your body is a community of organisms working together. You are the host.
18:41 The centenarians in the film make their own alcohol and consume it with friends and family. Wine was used for digestive purposes.
20:38 Research results are context dependent. Research works best at understanding mechanisms, not in judging the value of things for our lives.
22:03 Eating fruit turns on/off our genes and is different from eating fructose. Your body does not know what to do with fructose creations.
27:43 MicroRNA from food causes a change in our genes.
29:13 Our microbiota throughout our body talk to our mitochondria, which talks to genes. Our microbiota talk directly to genes. Genetic information from our food talks to our genes and mitochondria. Food is also a mechanism of action.
30:31 It may not matter what bacteria are in your gut, it may matter which of their genes are being turned on.
33:46 We have gut yeasts, viruses and parasites that play roles in our health.
42:06 In the long-lived cultures, they ate together. Food preparation required that everyone work together.
45:18 Participants lived a long time because they listened to their bodies, they did what was natural, did what made sense for them and did what was taught to them.
47:45 All of the centenarians had gardens or farms.
53:21 The caffeine in coffee may be doing more damage than the benefits of polyphenols in the coffee.
55:27 Take breaks from certain things or cycle them,
58:31 Before electricity, people went to bed when the sun went down or told stories around a lamp.
01:04:22 It used to be that our minds were calm and our bodies. Now our minds are busy and our bodies are calm.
01:14:24 Birthing, pregnancy and breastfeeding are missing in longevity thinking and planning.
01:15:05 Trauma from childhood or inherited impact our behavior and our biology.
01:16:12 The Centenarian Morning Routine
01:18:15 Different botanicals were prized by centenarians around the world.
01:23:03 Our health comes from the earth. The microbiota of the earth needs to be intact and healthy.
01:26:00 Jason's elevator pitch: Meditate to gain insight and connect with yourself.
