S2E23 - Keto OG Ken Berry MD
2022/07/05
"Never take nutrition advice from a fat doctor." When Dr. Ken Berry tweeted that, he received a lot of blowback, but trust him, he knows what he’s saying. It is hard to listen to somebody when he can't even fix himself. In his mid-thirties, Dr. Berry was overweight and suffered from a wide range of health issues. As a family physician, he was aware of how terrible his nutritional advice were. And so,  as part of his self-healing and his desire to help others to live healthy lives, he began to seek answers. In search of the optimal diet, the paleo-anthropological literature gave this clear answer: our ancestors ate fatty meats. This led him to the ketogenic diet. He made it a 30-day challenge at first, a temporary weight loss hack. He was losing a lot of weight, and his other medical problems – type-2 diabetes, chronic pains, severe reflux – we’re all gone. He recommended that his patients try keto for 90 days and the results were consistent. They started losing weight. The chronic pains were getting better. No more heartburn. Reversing type 2 diabetes. Reversing fatty liver.  These results all begged the same question: was it because of keto? Dr. Berry's passion for good health and the benefits of the ketogenic diet came with a price. It hasn't been easy. But he refuses to back down. As long as he gets to help humans to be healthy and not be crippled by disease, there is no stopping him. Episode quick guide: 01:54 Dr. Ken Berry’s background 06:56 His search for optimal diet through paleo-anthropological literature 18:35 The ketogenic journey 31:26 Why the ketogenic diet is more than just a fad 35:59 Improving one’s health is improving the health of the planet 42:45 Humans as carnivores throughout history 49:19 The fad diet 50:45 The mission for optimal health and the price he has to pay  Get to know our guest: Dr. Ken Berry grew up in Texas, studied medicine in University of Tennessee and became a family physician. He started reading far and wide to learn proper diet. This made him do the ketogenic diet. He continued to recommend this diet to his patients because of continuous favorable results. He shares his journey and lessons in his YouTube channel and he has written a book, “Lies My Doctor Told Me.” “You're a bad doctor if you're not thinking about every piece of advice you give, every single patient, you're not a good doctor and you need to come to grips with that. And you need to decide how you're going to fix that.” – Dr. Ken Berry Connect with him: Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/c/KenDBerryMD "Lies My Doctor Told Me": https://amzn.to/3ucuLa4 Connect with Dr. Ovadia: TwitteriFixHearts WebsiteStay Off My Operating Table WebsiteAmazon Theme Song : Rage AgainstWritten & Performed by Logan Gritton & Colin Gailey(c) 2016 Mercury Retro RecordingsProduced by 38atoms & Jack Heald

S2E20: Rita Brewer - Medicine Should Heal People, not Treat Symptoms
2022/06/14
Rita Brewer is a medical professional, (Physician's Assistant) who went into medicine to help heal people. She found herself working more and liking it less, watched her patients not be helped and in fact get worse, and got no answers from the so-called experts amongst whom she worked. It wasn't until her health deteriorated due to  an autoimmune disease that she began looking outside of allopathic medicine for help. What she found there amazed and delighted her. This is her story.

S2E19: Casey Ruff - A fitness coach who was wrong, and chose to learn
2022/06/07
You'd think an athletic guy who's always been fit and active would "get it." You'd think if he went into the fitness industry and worked for a big gym as a trainer, he'd "get it." You'd think if he got advanced certification in personal training and nutrition coaching, he'd "get it." You'd think if his wife was in the same business, they'd both "get it." And you'd be wrong. It wasn't until they observed hundred of clients fail year after year, that Casey Ruff  and wife Bethany began to question the things they'd been taught about metabolism, exercise and diet. They realized the conventional wisdom was - in a word - wrong. In this entertaining hour, Casey Ruff explains his transformation from an educated-but-ignorant trainer to one of the more respected health and nutrition coaches in the world today.

S2E18 - Dr. Stephen Hussey - Understanding the Heart
2022/05/31
On his Facebook page, Dr. Stephen Hussey's bio says he is "a health coach who helps people achieve high levels of health. He specializes in heart health and autoimmune issues." In an industry in which so-called "Experts" make all forms of exaggeration and hyperbole a regular routine, this two-sentence biography stands out for sheer understatement. Dr. Stephen Hussey's research into the role of "structured water" in the body led to a heretical-yet-scientifically-sound conclusion: the heart and its functions in the body have been misunderstood by the medical profession. Since heart disease is the #1 cause of death in the United States, the implications for healthcare are staggering.

S2E17 - Cynthia Thurlow
2022/05/24
She was inside the belly of the beast for 20 years, doing her best to help heal sick people. As she watched the healthcare system deteriorate and morph into something that actively prevented healing, she knew she had to make a change. A healthcare crisis of her own cemented the deal. Cynthia Thurlow is a Nurse Practitioner specializing in cardiology. And she left the medical system so that she could help people heal. Today, she's a social media phenom, the creator of a viral TedX talk, a trusted voice on all things health-related for peri-menipausal and post-meno-pausal women, and an advocate for intermittent fasting as a health strategy. This 68 minute conversation flew by. You'll enjoy it too.

S2E16 - Metabolic Health OG William Davis, MD
2022/05/17
He was "Low Carb" when "Low Carb" wasn't cool. Dr. William Davis's book Wheat Belly started the conversation about the changes in wheat since 1980. A cardiologist by training, he was frustrated with the lack of healing he observed in his patients, in spite of adhering to official guidelines. We talked about his transformation from a traditional cardiologist to one of the leading voices in the metabolic health field. We discuss the role of supplements, hormones, and the surprising importance of probiotics in restoring and maintaining metabolic health. We finish up with a surprising twist - symptom-specific probiota.

S2E14 - Dr. Brian Lenzkes
2022/05/03
One of our most entertaining conversations ever, with the ebullient Low-Carb MD, Brian Lenzkes. We get to hear about the differences between a medical office that depends on insurance for payment and one that doesn't. We learn about a grotesque misalignment of incentives between physicians, insurance companies and patients - who wins, and who loses. And we learn about the doctor banned for giving nutrition advice to his own patients. As always, if you wanna know who's really calling the shots, follow the money.
