Intermittent fasting and prolonged fasting decrease insulin but also impact your thyroid, cortisol and other hormones. In this show discuss this research and considerations when deciding how often or long to fast for your health.

It is halved after 72 hours. 04:22 Create a fasting plan that is sustainable and consistent. 05:27 Your metabolic rate is reduced during fasting. Thus, there is a somewhat significant reduction in free T3 levels and a reduction in TSH with fasting. 06:07 Autoimmune hypothyroidism is characterized by leptin interfering and changing immune system tolerance. 07:07 If you are lean and have thyroid issues, perhaps fasting is not of benefit to you. 07:17 Early time restricted feeding pushes your circadian rhythm into an early robust cortisol waking response. 07:52 Fasting, eating, and waking up causes a transient increase in cortisol. 08:37 The primary benefit to fasting is a reduction in glucose and reduction in insulin. 08:52 Early time restricted feeding that Mike recommends, consists of breaking your fast at about 10 a.m. and ending by 6 p.m.
Politicians and health officials continue to create new mandates and health orders but curiously ignore rampant obesity and metabolic health issues.

A new study unveils details about how sauna therapy supports longevity, heart health and preservation of muscle mass throughout lifespan. In this podcast we review these findings and discuss the practical ways to benefit and incorporate into your life.  Sponsored Message: Support your Sleep and Electrolyte levels with Myo Relax by MYOXCIENCE Nutrition: http://bit.ly/2HgCPOs Save with code: Podcast Link to Research and Show Notes: https://bit.ly/3tAYVlv The Infrared Sauna I Highly Suggest: High Tech Health https://www.hightechhealth.com Save with code HIH Learn How to Build Your Own Finnish Sauna: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIH5Ygv3qs8 Time Stamps 01:00 Each type of sauna is beneficial. With infrared, you need to stay in longer for similar benefits. 02:30 There is a 65% risk reduction for mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s in people who sauna 3 to 5 times each week. 02:45 There was a 27% lowered risk for cardiovascular disease in men who used the sauna 3 to 5 times a week. 03:00 There was a 50% lower risk of cardiovascular disease in men who used the sauna 4 – 7 times a week. 03:45 Length of time in the sauna: Mike advises that you stay until you feel uncomfortable and then stay another minute. Take a break and then go back in. 04:00 A sauna inside your home needs good ventilation to prevent mold. 05:00 Sauna therapy shifts about 60% of your blood from your core to your periphery and skin. The inverse is true when you get cold in contrast therapy. 07:10 Loss of control of protein balance within the cell, loss of proteostasis is a hallmark of ageing. There is benefit within the muscle tissue in reducing atrophy of the muscle with sauna therapy. 08:10 Heat shock proteins are involved in preventing the accumulation of dysfunctional protein. 09:20 Heat therapy and sauna bathing can help to decrease age-related muscle loss. 09:30 Individuals with high blood pressure have dysfunctional endothelium, which causes erectile dysfunction. 12:10 Heat shock protein expression can be increased for up to 48 hours with sauna use. This response shifts upward as you become more acclimated to heat therapy. 13:15 Transient increases in interleukin 6 are favorable. There is also a transient increase in interleukin 6 with heat therapy. 14:15 Interleukin 10 affects your T-regulatory cells, which help to increase tolerance within your immune system. 16:10 Sauna therapy improves sleep and heartrate variability. 17:30 Sauna bathing enhances the excretion of cadmium, lead and other heavy metals in the sweat. 18:00 You also release beneficial minerals in sweat: magnesium, zinc and sodium. 19:15 Sauna use can negatively impact sperm motility.

I misspoke in yesterday’s podcast when saying there’s been, “126 cumulative COVID-19 deaths in children.” There’s actually been 378 cumulative deaths in children, as of August 12, 2021 in the USA. Very sorry about that. This brings the case death rate down to 0.01%. (And 0% in some states as not every state has recorded a C*19 death in a child yet.) The estimated number of children under the age of 19 in the USA is estimated to be around ~ 75,000,000. Interestingly, during this same time period over 540,918 children have died from other causes. (As of August 12th, 2021.) So COVID-19 represents 0.07% of all childhood deaths. Sorry for the confusion. Here's a link to the podcast and data source: https://bit.ly/3k4QxGO

Researchers in Denmark discovered that fasting impacts key chemicals in the brain differently for lean and obese subjects. Support your Sleep and Electrolyte levels with Myo Relax by MYOXCIENCE Nutrition: http://bit.ly/2HgCPOs Save with code: Podcast Link to Show Notes and Research: https://bit.ly/2VpIBaV More about today's show: After a 24-hour fast, serotonin was increased in appetite regulatory regions in lean but not obese subjects. Researchers did further analysis and found that fasting-related shifts in insulin and fatty acids were responsible for much of this shift in brain chemicals in the lean subjects. Here are a few key takeaways from this video: -Serotonin plays an important role in appetite signaling -Eating earlier in the day may support higher levels of serotonin and thus better appetite control -Obese individuals may need to pair exercise with their fasting regimes to gain the most benefit

Good content. All these years we've been misled by mainstream media that generic pharmaceuticals are the same as branded. Thanks for the education.

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 💜💜💜
