Question: If PTH is mid-normal, do I need a calcium supplement? I'm assuming that by midrange you mean it's 30. If you mean it's 40, then no, you're deficient or you're probably deficient. You need to test how you respond. But what I would say is, it would still be good for you to try increasing that and see if the PTH goes down anymore. Because my…
 
Question: What to do about sky-high pyroglutamate? Pyroglutamate, its other name is 5-oxoproline. It is something that is primarily produced when you are synthesizing glutathione, but you do not have enough of the second step in glutathione synthesis to keep up with the first step. Maybe you need more glycine, but your glycine isn't low enough to c…
 
Hands down, the question I’m asked the most is how I “get it all done.” It’s true — with six kids, homeschooling, running several businesses, and prioritizing health, I have a lot on my plate. The truth is, there was a time not so long ago when I nearly dropped all of the plates I have spinning. I was headed for burnout, fast. Once I realized that …
 
Question: In hemochromatosis, why would ferritin be low but transferrin saturation high? Ferritin is your long-term iron storage. Transferrin is your short-term iron storage. The problem with hemochromatosis is that usually in a normal functioning system, there is a hormonal regulatory system that prevents you from absorbing iron from food when you…
 
“In order for the body to heal, it has to be in a healing state.” These are the wise words of my colleague Alex Howard who you’ll hear from on the podcast today, as he brilliantly maps the sympathetic nervous system. Understanding this important system is a Non-Negotiable, so be sure to rest, digest, and give a good listen!February 21st, 2020> Clic…
 
Question: Does folic acid act differently in the body than natural folate? | Masterjohn Q&A Files #68They don't really. Everything that is said bad about folic acid is sort of true to an extent but has been completely exaggerated in some circles. What happens is you have an enzyme called dihydrofolate reductase, or DHFR. Its purpose is not to metab…
 
My guest today is Emily Fletcher, founder of Ziva Meditation and author of the best-selling book Stress Less. Emily really caught my attention when we were chatting at an event about meditation. Meditating has never been the easiest thing for me, but something she said that day stuck with me. She said we meditate not to get good at meditation, but …
 
Question: Can frozen vegetables be trusted for folate? You absolutely cannot trust frozen vegetables as a source of folate ever. That's because folate is extremely unstable in the freezer, and you have no idea how old the vegetables are. If they were fresh-frozen yesterday, they'd probably have plenty of folate. But if they were fresh-frozen three …
 
Question: How much spinach, broccoli, and kale is too much? Cruciferous vegetables have an issue with potential goitrogens. At serving sizes like this, the only issue with cruciferous vegetables is that they increase your iodine requirement. In theory, if you are juicing cruciferous vegetables to have like ten servings a day, in theory, you might g…
 
A look at the recipes on my blog shows that I consider meat to be an important part of a healthy diet. I realize this stance can be highly controversial given the poor diet, environment, and climate impact of commercial meat-raising practices. This is why I asked Anya Fernald — a leader in the high quality, organic, and premium food market — to tal…
 
Question: Can you give any suggestions for increasing delta-6 desaturase activity? There's a bunch of nutrients involved in that, so many that you basically just need to do a comprehensive nutritional screening for whether something is missing there. You might just have low activity by genetics. It's probably not worth solving that problem. The big…
 
As Functional clinicians, we sit in a unique seat, one that enables us to empower those we work with to embrace their unique physiology and the environment in which they live and breathe. This is critical when thinking about detox. And that's why I've invited Dr. Christine Schaffner to discuss how we can take detoxification to the next level by tur…
 
Question: What are the pros and cons of boosting sulforaphane? Sulforaphane, the nice thing is it promotes detoxification. The bad thing is it raises the need for iodine. I don't know what ratio to take, but you definitely want to make sure that you're getting some kind of iodine into your diet, whether it's through like 200 micrograms of iodine fr…
 
I’m here today with Nick Ortner, the CEO of The Tapping Solution, a company with a mission to bring tapping to the mainstream. What is tapping, you ask? Think of it as modern psychology meets ancient Chinese acupressure, but self-administered in the comfort of your home. I use it during times of stress or when I’m trying to derail a negative habit.…
 
Question: Is it true that we can’t absorb more than 1.5 grams of creatine at one time? I don't think that's true. From what I looked at, it looked like the absorption of creatine was really, really good. I don't know if someone was arguing maybe that we don't retain more than that. But I think the retention of your muscles is going to be best with …
 
Question: NMN vs. NR: What’s better? And is TMG necessary? Yeah. There are no human studies looking at NMN and how it's metabolized. There are studies of NR. No one has showed any positive benefits of supplementing NR in humans yet, but they haven't really done any long-term studies or looked at many things, and they really haven't looked at anythi…
 
Are bone broth and collagen safe with Herpes or Epstein Barr viruses? If you are using collagen powder or bone broth for your daily soup or smoothie you may be making a mistake. Broth and Collagen can be excellent protein choices when you are well. But if you struggle with recurring Herpes, Shingles or EBV these protein foods feed Retroviruses with…
 
Question: What to do about cataracts. Carl Rayner says, "Cataract in one eye becoming noticeable. This eye had a posterior detachment about 11 years ago, which is basically healed. I've been on a low-carb diet for over 40 years. Eat raw cream cheese, eggs, meat and liver. In the past few years, adding fasting and more keto diet. Saw your thoughts a…
 
Question: What can be done nutritionally to specifically improve antiviral immunity? Certainly, the fat-soluble vitamins, vitamins A and D, both important. Lauric acid as a fat. Coconut oil might be a good fat choice for the fat in your diet. Monolaurin would be a very good choice for a supplement. Lauricidin is the best monolaurin to take, 3 to 10…
 
Dr. Lyla Blake-Gumbs is a board-certified family and functional medicine physician with 22 years of clinical training and experience. I met Dr. Lyla when she joined SteadyMD, which I’ve shared about before. I knew I wanted to ask Dr. Lyla to be on the podcast when I learned she is an expert in women’s hormone health especially during the (often tou…
 
Question: If free T3 looks good, why is TSH still a little high? Why hasn't the T3 brought it down enough? Your thyroid gland makes thyroid hormone. Thyroid hormone increases your metabolic rate and does a lot of related things. Your hypothalamus is governing that by controlling your pituitary, the master endocrine gland, and its secretion of TSH, …
 
Probiotics are live microbes that, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit. While we're all familiar with probiotics, many practitioners can be confused when working with them. That's why I've invited one of my teachers, Dr. Jason Hawrelak, to the mic to give us some fast and fun information on supporting the gut ecosystem.Fe…

Smaller tests have been run but this was a large study of 168 products in 61 brands. "Healthy Babies …

Question: What food supplements and training programs are good for developing muscle mass? Overwhelmingly, what matters for muscle mass is working out, eating enough protein, and eating enough calories. You want to try and hit 10-20 sets per muscle group per week with eat set hitting within 80% of failure. So, if your doing a set of 8 reps but you …

Today I’m opening up and sharing about my own inner journey over the past year and how that led to dramatic physical changes without major diet and exercise changes. If you’d told me a few years ago that something like that was even possible, I would not have believed you. My journey involved realizing firsthand just how connected the mind and body…
 
Question: Should I manage my total cholesterol of 305 just for my doctor or should I be doing it for my own sake? If so, how should I do it? You should want to improve your lipid profile for a lot more than to please your doctor. Let's revisit this from a cholesterol skeptic point of view. Uffe Ravnskov, he wrote a book called The Cholesterol Myths…
 
Question: "Do you have any recommendations on how to get enough calcium on a low-carb, no-dairy diet? I've read that vegetables provide calcium, but bioavailability is poor." The bioavailability of calcium from different vegetables is highly dependent on the specific vegetables. Cruciferous vegetables have very good bioavailability. It's better tha…
 
Question: What should people with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency be doing not just about glutathione, but about folate, vitamin K, fatty acids, and neurotransmitters? G6PD, glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency, is an inborn error of metabolism. It's the most common one in the world. About 8% globally have some impairment in th…
 
You’ve heard me talk about the importance of optimizing our circadian rhythm with food and light, but as women there’s another rhythm we all know well… that monthly cycle that fogs our brains, gets our food cravings going, and plays havoc with our emotions! It ruins everything, right? Well, Alisa Vitti is here today to change how we think about per…
 
Question: If my tryptophan is low, and I'm on a low-carb diet, would you recommend 5-HTP supplements or tryptophan supplements or both? There are multiple reasons why tryptophan could be low. It could be that you are not eating enough protein, or it could be that you have a high utilization of the tryptophan. I would look in the test and see if the…
