November 5, 2021
Hosted by Susan Downs, MD
On the path towards optimal health, it is important to find the underlying cause for a chronic ailment. One can support gut health, adrenal health, thyroid and hormones, but till not get to the primary cause of a chronic illness. Hormone optimization is not sufficient as unless deeper, upstream issues can be addressed. Further, deeper causes can include toxins, heavy metals and infections. Also Dr. Pompa will discuss his book, Beyond Fasting: A cellular Solution to Break through Weight Loss Resistance, Slow aging and Get Well. His book recommends adapting the body to burn fats efficiently. In addition to intermittent fasting, and getting the body into ketosis, he recommends a variation in diets. Diet variation is essential for optimal health Thus, intermixed with paleo or other diets, there can be days of heavy healthy carbohydrates.
