Dr. Ben Lynch discusses more about histamine, gut health and why gallbladder issues are so common and tips to optimize. We also look at gene testing and why considering clusters of interrelated genes and their associated networks instead of myopically focusing on one good or bad gene variant is much more useful for determining your health weaknesses and strengths.

It is one of many tools. 06:50 Dirty Genes book is full of quizzes which identifies genetic issues without doing genetic testing. 07:45 Lifestyle habits are passed down through generations, so issues may not be caused by genes. 08:35 Less than 5% of cancers are heritable. Only 1% of Parkinson’s is genetic. 09:25 Conventional medicine using pharmacological interventions are by force. Naturopathic and functional medicine is nurture and restorative, with an appreciation for the biochemical network. 10:50 Look at genes in a wholistic way. There are about 18,000 genes in our bodies. 12:10 A single variant is minuscule compared to the other 18,000 genes communicating. And there are many other variables that make studying a single variant complicated. For example, is the study subject sleeping in a hot or cold room, mouth breathing, has a sleep partner snoring, and loaded with stress? It appears as though epigenetics overrides the majority of other provocations. 13:40 You must look at the research with a wholistic view. Look at many studies. 14:35 You do not need genetic testing. Listen to how your body is feeling and give those areas in need more love, attention, and protection. 16:12 Some genes are highly influenced by epigenetics and others are not. Sometimes is it a matter of workload for the gene. 18:00 If you have the MTHFR variant, you are less likely to die from malaria. You may have a reduced ability to methylate folate, but methylfolate can be found in leafy green vegetables and animal livers. 20:40 At some point, mutated genes helped your ancestors survive. Our genes are adapting to our new environment, and we are passing this on to our kids. 23:20 Dr. Lynch had to choose 7 genes out of 18,000 for the book. He chose MTHFR because it effects the entire genome. Two glutathione genes were chosen because oxidative stress effects the entire genome. 24:00 CMT and MAOA were chosen for their impact upon brain function. 24:30 DAO works on histamine metabolism in the gut, which can cause leaky gut. 25:00 PEMT: Solid cell membranes create cell membranes and create storage for histamine and your neurotransmitters. This phosphatidyl choline synthesizing gene highly polymorphic. 26:45 Nitric oxide is important for emergent heart issues. 26:50 By focusing on supporting these 7 genes, you are positively influencing all of your genes. 28:45 Phosphatidyl choline keeps your bile from being thick and sludgy. You need 10 parts phosphatidyl choline to one part cholesterol to have your bile flow. 30:23 If you are an obese woman in your 40s and still fertile, you will struggle with a gallbladder issue, especially if you have a PEMT variant. The primary stone in the gallbladder is formed from cholesterol. It stems from fatty liver. 32:44 The phosphatidyl choline supplement is used to improve bile flow, but since it is a lipid, it cannot be fully absorbed to improve bile flow. With PEMT variant, reduce consumption of fats and reduce the workload on that gene. 33:45 Visceral manipulation is a near instant fix for bile flow. It is massage to compress your liver. You will have an amazing bowel movement. Support with herbs that stimulate bile flow and production, like glycine, taurine, bitter herbs, ginger, and artichoke. Then supplement with phosphatidyl choline. 36:00 There is data about bile acids and dysfunctional bile acid signatures in the brain and heart. 36:50 Bile has antimicrobial properties. Taking ox bile at meals to help with fat metabolization. Ox bile taken between meals gets into your small intestine to kill off overgrowth bacteria. Maybe take it with a little charcoal. Bacteria release gasses and compounds that cause issue when they die and break open. Binding these is important. 38:28 Acid reflux is bile coming through a leaky pyloric sphincter. 39:10 The StrateGene test for neurotransmitters looks at the reduction, transport, binding to the receptor and the synthesis/metabolism of key neurotransmitters. 41:20 Pesticides slow the HTR1B gene. They bind to the serotonin receptor. 42:00 The metabolism of neurotransmitters can be fast, typical or slow. Many medications target the reuptake of neurotransmitters to keep it in the brain, rather than have it reabsorbed. 43:00 Many of us who take SSRIs get no effect because they have no or too little serotonin in the brain for the medication to work with. 43:30 5-HTP is a primary precursor to serotonin. The DEC gene converts 5-HTP to serotonin, uses vitamin B-6. 48:20 Sleep is associated with serotonin. Serotonin is converted to your melatonin. Taking supplemental melatonin may mean that serotonin is still in your brain, producing a “wired and tired” feeling. 50:55 Adderall and Ritalin are addictive amphetamines. Amphetamines block the reuptake of dopamine. Harm can be done with higher doses of amphetamines when we already have a slow ability to remove dopamine from the brain. 53:50 Medications can be useful as an intermittent intervention. Many times, non-pharmaceutical interventions can be used strategically with genetic testing. 55:05 Ritalin is toxic to the brain because it keeps so much dopamine in the brain, making dopamine quinone. Three toxic compounds are produced when you break down dopamine. 58:40 We think that Parkinson’s is a low dopamine state, so patients are prescribed L-dopa. L-dopa may have been the reason their brain was toxic to begin with from a messed up MTHFR. 59:15 Supplementing with dopamine hastens the destruction of the Parkinson’s brain. Parkinson’s is a damaged state due to a pro-oxidative environment in the brain, possibly due to more elevated dopamine or a trapping of some of the toxic metabolites of dopamine in the brain. 01:01:17 Quinones are highly reactive and hard to calm and neutralize. Glutathione does not neutralize a reactive quinone. PQQ is helpful. Carnosine is also helpful and rapidly metabolized by carnosinase and converted into histamine and histidine. N-acetyl carnosine keeps carnosine in circulation longer. It is protective of the brain and is also used in eye drops for cataracts. 01:05:20 Eye health/function is an indicator of brain health. Your eyes contain the most mitochondria per density of any organ or body part. Eyes use a lot of oxygen and requires a lot of glutathione and other antioxidants for support.    
New data from 4.8 million hospitalizations finding 94.9% of COVID-19 patients had very common, yet largely preventable, underlying health conditions, including: -High blood pressure -Lipid imbalances (commonly caused by insulin resistance) -Obesity -Anxiety Support your Vitamin D and Zinc with these new tasty gummies by Myoxcience https://bit.ly/vit-d-gummies Link to article, video and images: https://bit.ly/3yCeefc Data from 4.8 million hospital visits debunk the media's constant lie that 'perfectly healthy people are dropping like flies' from the virus. We review new data collected from 800 US hospitals and 4.8 million medical records from March 2020 to March 2021. The report found that of 540,000 hospitalized for C*19, only 27,000 (5.5%) did not have a chronic health condition. Over 513,000 of the 540,000 (94.9%) hospitalized for C*19 had at least one chronic health condition; some had as many as 10 or more. (Needless to say a super majority of these conditions reported with high frequencies are created by people's own nutrition, exercise and lifestyle choices: insulin resistance, obesity, mental health issues and more.) The presence of two or more underlying conditions increases the odds of death nearly 2 fold compared to those with none; 10 or more conditions increases odds of death by nearly 4 fold. What's even worse--considering the constant media fear mongering--anxiety was found to be the second strongest predictor of death, after obesity. This is after adjusting for age and other variables. Let’s use this new report to nudge our friends to start making better nutrition, exercise and lifestyle choices.
New research suggests blood sugar and insulin surges can impair our circadian clock system, possibly leading to sleep disruptions and more. We then discuss how to avoid the common meal-timing mistake many make when Intermittent Fasting or eating OMAD, adding more evidence to the idea that we should start feeding earlier in the day and start our fast in the early evening.

Dan Stephenson, CSCS shares amazing nuggets and new science that'll help you get ripped and gain strength this summer. New Vitamin D and Zinc Gummy post-workout Snack by MYOXCIENCE: http://bit.ly/vit-d-gummies Save with code: Podcast Connect with Dan: https://idealstrength.com Time Stamps:  07:50 Periodization is the organized structure to your training. 09:15 Your workout program should respect your goals. 11:10 Changing up your modality can accelerate weight loss during the adaptation to that modality. 11:35 The overload principle is where you do more than you did previously: weight, weight lifted over time or weight lifted in a session. 12:40 The gas principle is your general adaptation syndrome, which can lead to maladaptation. 13:10 Four to 6 weeks is time to make changes/variations. 14:10 Hypertrophy is the building of the muscle. Strength is when we ask the muscle to express more force. 17:30 Your recovery is more difficult if you are always redlining during your workout. 20:10 Powerlifting focuses on the glutes. Glutes stabilize the pelvis and helps keep the spine in a neutral position. 21:55 Strong lats and glutes are important for injury prevention and performance. 23:05 Hamstrings help stabilize the pelvis. 27:40 Raw lifting does not use clothing or other accessories that assists with the lift (geared). Raw and geared are separated in competition. 31:00 You can improve your pullup strength with bands. 31:47 Bands accommodate resistance. They are a great way to offload and assist in the bottom portion of the pullup movement. 36:10 Isometrics have been shown to have a pain-relieving effect. 37:00 Yielding isometrics is holding the weight for a period of time before completing the whole rep. Overcoming isometrics is like pushing the bar into an immoveable object. 37:40 Sticking point is where the bar or movement slows down the most, showing where you are weakest in your range of motion. 38:15 Tempo is when you pause where you are weakest or just before where you are weakest. 41:25 A similar movement pattern with fast movement, twitching, can potentiate a lot of type 2 muscle fibers and recruit bigger motor units. 42:05 Failure in lifting is your body giving you feedback and inhibit the muscle from producing force as a way to protect it. 50:20 Bands and suspending weights adds variables that require building of stability. Chains can be used for hypertrophy or strength.. 54:00 Increasing the weight as you get stronger, begs you to put more force into the movement. 54:50 Power can be developed with a wide range of intensities. 55:30 Chains for workout are usually ¾ inch or 5/8 inch in 5- or 6-foot chunks. You can layer lighter chains, but you can order online. 59:30 With the Kabuki Kratos flywheel training system, the harder you pull or push (moving the flywheel), the harder it pulls back on you. 01:04:50 Kettlebells are a versatile tool.

It kicked his butt. 01:06:25 Once you realize that you can fast for days at a time, you don’t mind missing a meal. 01:08:35 A study of people asthma found that doing 12 days of alternate weekday fasting cut the need for asthma medicines. 01:10:05 To compliment alternate day fasting, athletic people would be advised to eat high protein (keto/carnivore). 01:10:55 Our ancestors ate locally seasonal and we could too. 01:11:42 What your long-ago ancestors ate influences the efficacy of your diet. 01:14:05 Refined carbs and the combination of refined carbs with fat are not found in nature. 01:18:50 Big food wants us to believe in the power of calories rather than carbohydrates. 01:22:40 Masking to prevent viral spread in non-healthcare settings does not have strong support data. 01:24:41 It is healthy to question everything. Who is paying the expert? 01:25:45 Schools have your child for 6 hours a day and exert a great influence. 01:29:14 The majority of people who go through gender reassignment at a young age regret it later. 01:36:06 Cold thermogenesis is a good stress that favorably affects the immune system.

Wow, mind blown! Yes, definitely hit rewind several times and will re-listen to this at least once more so I can take even more notes! So much over my head but still love, love, loved, all the content and now I have so many things I need to understand better so I can be committed to implementing in my life.  Here were just a few highlights: Salt (taking 3-6ish grams) can improve athletic performance, reducing amount of caffeinated pre-work needed. Going back to listen to the salt podcast with him next :-). Going to source better fish oil, store I'm fridge/frzr, up the grams to the 3-6 grams, and change or add krill to help workout/muscle growth and hypothyroidism (loved hearing about this).  Eating 30 grams of protein during workout will allow you to synthesize more muscle. Phytic acid has a place where it can be good including helping fight cancer??? Wow, such a new idea and interested to learn more!  Definitely going to check out The Salt Fix, Longevity Solution, and Super Fuel. After listening to him I'll read anything he puts out😉! Thank you so much Mike! I totally love geeking out on the health content you deliver! You are one of my absolute favs on podcast! I appreciate that you're very science based, well educated, articulate, and not full of yourself (even though you could be;)). And yes, James is definitely a male version of Rhonda Patrick, both exemplary sources of information!

Treatments for #migraine are dietary such as keeping a steady blood sugar level by eating foods having a low glycolic index, cut out dairy and gluten, try being in ketosis from time to time, add keton salts, avoid activities that trigger an attack for you such as exercise and fasting.

I’m so grateful for this episode. I did the keto diet for 6 weeks. I was 58 kg and I wanted to go down to 52. Even though I was always on ketosis I did not lose any weight at all. I was so confused and desmotivated for that. On the other hand, I experimented an increase in my energy levels , mental clarity and suppression of cravings which is amazing. 3 days ago I started keto again and with this podcast I can finally understand a 100% why I didn’t lose any weight. Thanks 💜💜💜
