High Intensity Health with Mike Mutzel, MS

We caught up Dr. Paul Thomas to chat about his new book, the Vaccine—Friendly Plan.

A big trend in medicine nowadays is personalization.

(People are genetically, epigenetically and microbially different, so therapies should be customized to reflect this uniqueness. That’s the thinking.)

It seems that pediatrics, however, is still in the dark ages …

Every child gets the same vaccine—at the same time.
As of July 1, 2016, children in California can't even go to school, or daycare if you don't do all the vaccines per CDC the schedule.
A pediatrician of 25 years says this approach is obsolete.

When a child is at risk for autoimmunity, autism or the like—it doesn’t matter—the child gets the same immune-stimulating vaccines as everyone else.

Here is his customized alternative: http://bit.ly/2bgbLB4

This is a great resource that parents and grandparents should own.

I sure wish I’d had this book when my daughter was little.

Also in this interview, we discuss the data collected from his 11,000 charts that recorded this more conservative vaccine schedule.

Here are a few key timestamps:
03:52 Tdap Pregnancy Vaccine Theory
11:47 Flu Shots, Moms and and Autism
13:48 An Individualized Vaccine Approach?
19:21 Vaccines and Developmental Delays
22:24 Herd Immunity

Ketogenic diets are all the rage there days.  It’s not just hype.
Nutritional ketosis brings you lower blood glucose and lower blood insulin levels, as well as weight loss.
These are just the side benefits!

The main benefit, in my opinion, is raising blood levels of Beta-hydroxybutyrate – one of the main ketones. BHB is a critical signaling molecule. It positively affects our genetic expression. It protects our DNA and reprograms our metabolism to mirror calorie restriction.  The impact upon the immune system, cancer fighting, metabolism, longevity, mitochondrial health, brain health and athletic performance are profound.
Deanna and I take a deep dive into nutritional ketosis and reviewed the science.

Welcome to Episode #150 w/ Drs Mark Dedomenico and Connie Guttersen, authors of The Love Diet. 

Sometimes, lifestyle medicine is poo-pooed as fluffy and ineffective when it comes treating serious diseases like heart disease and cancer.

But Mark Dedomenico, MD, co-developer of the coronary bypass surgery procedure, quit doing surgeries to start a lifestyle medicine center.

“As surgeons, we simply didn’t have the patient long enough to make sustainable changes in their habits that got them here,” he said.

Over 24 years later, Dr. Dedomenico has helped 11,000 patients change their nutrition, physical activity, and lifestyle and ultimately ditch their disease-causing habits.

Mindset and self-love are at the foundation of their progress.

Rewinding this mental blueprint framework is fundamental to long-term weight-loss success, says Dr. Dedomenico.

Here are his key mindset tips for weight loss:

Connie Guttersen, RD, PhD, and best-selling author of The Sonoma Diet, was part of this two-person interview.

She, too, has helped patients break the hidden shame-cycle and negative self-talk often associated with dieting.

(It may sound light and fluffy, but believe me, this is good stuff that can be applied to non-weight–related health issues like cancer and autoimmunity.)
