Nutritional scientist, Dr Chris Masterjohn, PhD, is today’s guest interview. Chris shares with us the best ways to start assessing your nutrient status and how he came up with a cheat sheet - Testing Nutritional Status: The Ultimate Cheat Sheet to help guide us in understanding the blood test numbers. He explains what current lab tests and RDA’s tell us and why they aren't always the best indicator of nutrient status for vitamins and minerals. We then find out about depletion/repletion studies and the problem with a general lack of data. We also go into discussing other key information in determining deficiencies such as diet, lifestyle, genetics and general signs and symptoms as well as tips on before and after testing, food vs supplements and low-carb/keto diets.

Biochemical Engineer and Fat Emperor, Ivor Cummins, is today’s guest interview. Ivor shares with us why the coronary artery calcium (CAC) score is the most reliable measure of heart disease. He explains what the CAC score tells us in terms of heart attack risk and how it actually measures disease progression rather than risk factors. We then find out about why seemingly healthy people die prematurely of heart attacks, where to get tested and reversing/slowing progression of disease. We also go into discussing other useful markers, calcium supplements, diet, as well as other factors including ApoE4 genotypes and gum infections.

Co-founder of Nutrita and Neuroscientist, Raphael Sirtoli, is today’s guest interview. Raphael shares how his new venture, the low-carb/keto food search engine by Nutrita came about. He explains how The Nutrita app scoring system works and helps people make informed food choices more easily with their keto and low-carb friendly nutrition tracker. We then find out about the three food ratings Nutrita uses: the keto score, nutrient density score and insulin index, as well as how their macro calculator works and the more in-depth nutrient breakdown option. We also go into discussing bad data, Nutrita’s data sources and their approach to analysing data, the glycemic index and its limitations as well as more about the goals and future of their web app that’s coming soon.

A qualified ‘renegade’ pharmacist and holistic wellness expert, Niraj Naik, is today’s guest interview. Niraj shares how breathwork training can change your physiology to help healing and promote health. He helps explain the science behind why it is important to regulate the amount of oxygen we take in with breathing exercises. We then find out about how the oxidative stress that results in our bodies from over-breathing results in disease and what triggers this response. We also go into discussing stopping the need for medication, different breathing techniques, improving our efficiency at using oxygen, hyperbaric oxygen chambers vs intermittent hypoxia, anxiety and stress management and benefits for asthma.

Functional medicine practitioner, Dr. Paul Saladino (MD), is today’s guest interview. Paul shares his perspective on the nose-to-tail carnivore diet. He helps explain why the nose-to-tail approach is key when adopting an all-meat diet (esp. long-term) and why certain people have great results on this type of diet. We then find out which plant foods can be more problematic than others and what elements are essential in a nose-to-tail diet if we want to avoid deficiencies. We also go into discussing intestinal permeability, mental health, longevity, supplements, iodine, collagen, balance in terms of micronutrient ratios such as copper and zinc, as well as omega-3/omega-6, methionine/glycine and fat/protein ratios.
