Encore Episode: Cholesterol: Not Your Heart's Enemy
Cholesterol isn't bad for your heart, contrary to what you may have heard.Doctors have gotten it wrong about cholesterol in the past. The guidelines have changed, but we still get stuck on old information. Why have you been told to avoid saturated fault? Because of cholesterol. You’ve been told cholesterol causes heart disease. Wrong. You need cholesterol for vitamin D production, sex hormones and brain health. This focus on cholesterol has lead to the over-prescription of statins. In many cases, you can improve heart health without these drugs. Statins are mildly anti-inflammatory but carry many side effects. Fish oil can reduce inflammation and has no negative side effects. Citrus bergamot lowers triglycerides and inflammation and raises HDL cholesterol (the "good" kind). Cholesterol is far more complicated than the two categories established decades ago. Particle testing is more reliable for getting an accurate picture of your own cholesterol. Of course, your cholesterol numbers won’t determine your risk for heart disease. It’s more important to reduce your inflammatory risk by improving your diet and helping your gut microbiome than to worry about cholesterol. Listen as Dr. Jonny Bowden joins Dr. Mike Fenster to preach the gospel of cholesterol. Sponsor: Real Salt - Is Your Salt Real?

Encore Episode: GAPS Diet: Finding Your Way Back to Health
You may be able to arrest health symptoms with the GAPS diet.Many health issues are a direct result of the foods you eat. The modern Western diet plays with pleasure centers, preventing you from recognizing the symptoms in your body after eating non-optimum foods. Becoming Predisposed to Health IssuesThere are more caesarean sections than in prior generations. This means fewer babies are passing through the birth canal to get a dose of mothers’ vaginal bacteria. Vaccines, antibiotics, environmental toxins and processed foods disrupt a baby’s gut bacteria. The bad bacteria start to outweigh the good. They attack the good bacteria, weakening the gut lining. The weakened gut lining leads to undesirable health conditions. Once you are diagnosed with a health condition, it’s hard to undo the mechanics that landed you there. Using quality ingredients and spending more time in the kitchen can improve your health. The GAPS DietStarted by Dr. Natasha Campbell McBride, the Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) diet is an elimination diet that cuts out anything that could deliver bad bacteria, such as boiled meats, broth, non-fibrous vegetables and veggies without stalks. Each stage takes a few days. Foods are reintroduced slowly. Bad bacteria will kick and scream to save themselves. It’s not unusual to feel ill while on the diet. If a reintroduced food makes you feel sick, return to the prior stage of the diet without that food for a few more days. Listen as Hilary Boynton joins Dr. Mike Fenster to share how you can use food to improve your health.

Best Diets for Health & Weight Loss
Finally! An answer to the question, "Which diet is the best?"Here’s the short and simple: There is no best diet for everyone. There is no magic bullet that will make your waistline shrink and your health improve overnight. The best diet for you is the one that gives you the best results. Every person has different genetic factors and health histories. It’s better to look at the key ingredients that successful diets include. If you’re having trouble with chronic health issues or weight loss, a great place to start is the Mediterranean diet. It focuses on fresh whole foods like whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, fish, red wine and olive oil. These components are helpful for most people. Purity makes a difference. Eat foods that aren’t heavily processed. Stick to things that aren’t packed with preservatives, fat and sugars. Portion size if also important. Americans are conditioned to have large, full plates of food. You don’t have to super-size the meals you cook and eat. Mindful eating aids digestion. Dining while on the go doesn’t relax your body for digestion. Mindless eating can lead to overeating or unhealthy eating. Chill out and enjoy the nourishment of your food. Meal planning is your friend. This keeps you from having to get fast food. Have things prepared and ready for meal prep. It takes a few minutes to sauté veggies or make a smoothie, especially if you’re prepared. Consider eating seasonally. Enjoy what nature is providing right now. Eat hearty soups in the winter and lighter soups and salads in summer. You can also save money by purchasing what is newly harvested. Start with a healthy breakfast. Have something rich in fiber, protein and healthy fat. It sets the stage for your day. Listen as Renee Simon joins Dr. Mike Fenster to share how to find the best diet for you.

Encore Episode: Curcumin: Turmeric's Active Ingredient
Learn about the relationship between turmeric and curcumin.Turmeric is a spice prevalent in southeast Asia. Curcumin is contained within turmeric and provides health benefit. You would need to ingest a lot of turmeric on a regular basis to enjoy the health benefits of curcumin. When curcumin is ingested, much of it is broken down by the digestive system and doesn’t make it into the bloodstream. The compound doesn’t have great bioavailability on its own. Combining it with black pepper can enhance its absorption. It can also be combined with oils or fats.But, taking a curcumin supplement blended with turmeric essential oil can help you overcome those challenges and really reap the benefits. Curcumin is largely safe to use with many common prescription drugs, but black pepper may have negative interaction with some pharmaceuticals. Keep this in mind if you are trying to enhance curcumin absorption in your body. Taking 300 mg to 500 mg of curcumin per day can be useful for prevention of health conditions. Taking two grams per day split over three meals can help with existing health conditions. Listen as Dr. Ajay Goel joins Dr. Mike Fenster to discuss the wonders of curcumin.
