Show Summary:  “When you're bloated and have a super noisy gut, you might not be making enough enzymes to break down your food because you're stressed out.”

 

Stress and digestive issues can create neuro-inflammation. The vagus nerve attaches to every organ in a human body's digestive tract, keeping you in balance and maintaining your homeostasis. But, viruses can potentially hijack the vagus nerve and the immune system depending on how well the body can balance different life stressors.

 

The neck area has a direct connection with the brain. When someone has Epstein Barr or food sensitivities, they get swollen lymph nodes. Poor posture and stress can cause tight neck, preventing proper circulation and getting rid of toxins to help the body heal.

Show Summary:  “Neurotransmitters  are basically neuro chemicals in your body that control every aspect of it -  your digestion, muscles, mood, and are very related to anxiety, depression, sleep, and peristalsis of your gut.  They are involved in every single function of the body.”

 

Dopamine and Serotonin are neurotransmitters and are very powerful. Being deficient in it can make you feel exhausted, unmotivated and can cause anxiety and depression. Medical professionals see it as something critical because it can contribute to hormone dysregulation. 

 

Another thing that can trigger depression and anxiety is mold as it is often invisible and misdiagnosed.

 

What's even trickier about this is people often think that they don't have mold in their homes. Surprisingly, it can cause an illness in any organ or our thyroid glands and create...

Heal Your Mitochondria to Heal Your Body

Oct 14, 2020

Episode 62: Gutsy Health Podcast 

 

Show Summary: In this episode, Tristin and Juanique discuss the importance of mitochondria, how to make sure that it’s optimally functioning and what destroys and enhances it. All the other treatments and things you do can even make you worse if you don’t pay attention.

They mentioned that a holistic approach is more exponential and beneficial to your health than working out for two hours a day for seven days a week. Extreme workout can destroy your mitochondrial function because our bodies are not designed to carry so much work and stress.

Connecting with nature helps us heal and improves our body function even more. Seeing the sunrise has a physiological effect on our bodies because it stimulates melatonin production, which is very anti-inflammatory and helps boost the immune system, brain function, sleep, and neurological regulation.

The Covid-19 pandemic has been affecting people at an increasing rate. Drug and alcohol use, as well as suicide rates, have been at an all time high. This crisis has brought on a lot of fear in people’s lives. Due to social distancing, people are more distanced now than they have ever been in our time. The most vulnerable of our population are suffering the most. There are four personality types. The first is the victim who says “Why me?” The second is the critic.

These first 3 personality types all have something in common, which is they offer no solutions. The fourth type is the navigator. They face issues with positivity. They...

Listen to "Your Liver Needs a Reset | Detoxification and Liver Function" on Spreaker.


Juanique and Tristin discuss the importance of detoxification, why it can stop working very efficiently, what happens to you when it stops working efficiently, and how you can supercharge it to get yourself back on a healing pathway. The liver is an essential piece of hormone management. The liver has over 500 functions in the body. Our modern environment seems to be terrible at making us healthy. Many foods that we eat have plenty of added chemicals and pesticides that our bodies are not meant to digest. Living a heavily stressful lifestyle can affect your liver negatively. Not only are foods unhealthy for us in modern society, but are also highly addictive. Three phases of detoxification. Phase 1) Bioactivation. Liver sends out enzymes to tag the toxins in your system letting your body know they are present. Phase 2) Conjugation phase. Your liver adds...

Why Doctors Dont Listen | Interview With Dr. John Sanders

Jul 21, 2020

Episode 57: Gutsy Health Podcast 

Listen to "Why Doctors Dont Listen | Interview With Dr. John Sanders" on Spreaker.


We have a culture of doctors who just don’t listen. It’s partially their fault and partially not. He’s a family physician. Has done dermatology, pediatrics, chiropractic work. About 70% of his energy is put to a computer rather than to a patient and understanding them. We don’t have doctors running the hospitals. Instead they’re run by business men, which can be a conflict between doctors, who focus more on patients, and administrators, who focus more on the system. In some states it’s illegal for non physicians to own clinics. The corporations running the health systems tend to be more concerned about the investor than the patients. The typical doctor feels restraints of the system. The problem is there is no time to create trust. There are usually multiple patients waiting in the next room, so the doctor has no time to...
