The end of alzheimer’s with Dr. Dale Bredensen

Would you like to train with Allan?  I'm going to take on one or two more clients for one-on-one training.  One-on-one online training, customized programming, nutrition advice, weekly check in calls, and much more.  Go to https://40plusfitnesspodcast.com/application.


Dr. Dale Bredesen is the author of the eye-opening new book entitled The End of Alzheimer’s: The First Program to Prevent and Reverse Cognitive Decline. The book details Alzheimer’s as a disease on the rise. The most common cause of dementia, Alzheimer’s is the number one health concern of individuals as we age, as there is no known treatment.

Today, Alzheimer’s is presenting even earlier among those in their late 40s and early 50s. But what is Alzheimer’s? Dr. Bredesen describes the disease as a dementing illness in which people progressively lose cognition. Many may begin by losing new memories. Some may first lose the ability to organize, speak, or read. Eventually, those affected will lose the ability to perform all of these functions.

Dr. Bredesen discusses the three types of Alzheimer’s. The first type is one that is caused by chronic inflammation as part of the body’s immune response. Type two, or atrophic or cold Alzheimer’s, is characterized by the inability to learn new things. The third type of Alzheimer’s is due to exposure to chemical, bio, or physical toxins which can predispose individuals to the disease. Dr. Bredesen also discusses the link between diabetes and Alzheimer’s. Though diabetes is a common contributor to Alzheimer’s, there is much more to the disease than just this aspect.

Dr. Bredesen explains that the goal is to make Alzheimer’s a rare disease. This can be accomplished through preventing the disease, improving cognition, and reducing cognitive decline. Monotherapies have not worked for chronic, complex illnesses such as Alzheimer’s. As such, Dr. Bredesen discusses a computer-based algorithm that will look at 150 different drivers of cognitive decline, evaluate these, and determine what is actually causing one’s cognitive decline on an individual level. This also provides a personalized strategy and optimized outcomes.

Go from average to epic with Dr. Don Rose

Dr. Don Rose is an endurance athlete and author of the new book, Average to Epic: A Mid-lifer’s Guide to Endurance Sports and Lifelong Fitness. This book serves as an introductory guide to a wide range of endurance sports and helps readers discover how to be successful as endurance athletes.

Dr. Rose discusses several guiding principles within the book, including:

  1. Almost nothing is impossible
  2. Understand your motivations
  3. One person’s epic is another person’s easy workout
  4. Enjoy and appreciate the journey
  5. Think sustainable and long-term
  6. Be prepared to examine your self-image
  7. Have an attitude of gratitude
  8. Don’t forget to give back

Dr. Rose encourages readers to do something bigger, or to adopt a big hairy audacious goal (BHAG). Think of something that you may think is impossible to do. BHAGs should be transformational, outrageous, outside your comfort zone, somewhat risky, time-based, and meaningful. They should also have a clear finish line, but with a long-term aspect.

Setting goals without a lot of experience can be frustrating. Dr. Rose encourages people to get some events under their belt to determine their starting point.

Dr. Rose also discusses his 10 truths of training, which define the essence of training that can be applied across many sports. These include:

  1. Everybody and every body is different.
  2. Know thy body.
  3. Training is more art than science.
  4. Know when to hold ‘em and know when to fold ‘em.
  5. Recovery, recovery, recovery.
  6. Planning is important. Flexibility is part of reality.
  7. Consistency is the key.
  8. Find a training rhythm.
  9. Avoid the middle ground.
  10. Don’t use a workout as a measure of fitness gains or losses.

The longevity plan with Dr. John Day

Dr. John Day is an accomplished cardiologist, lecturer, and author of the new book The Longevity Plan. This book was inspired by Dr. Day’s experience in a geographically isolated village in China called Bapan where residents live long, healthy lives.

In his mid-40s, Dr. Day developed numerous health issues and felt awful. He learned about this remote village in China where people didn’t seem to grow old or get sick. Wanting to fix his own health problems and help his patients with same issues, he traveled to this village to learn more. He found that villagers grew their own food and did not eat processed foods, added sugars, or tobacco. They had adopted a lifestyle that allowed their bodies to naturally heal.

Lessons learned in Longevity Village have helped Dr. Day identify seven lessons that will help us live longer, healthier lives. These include:

1. Eat good (real) food
2. Master your mindset
3. Build your positive community
4. Stay in motion
5. Finding your rhythm
6. Maintain a clean environment
7. Proceed with purpose

Dr. Day also identifies a bonus lesson beyond the seven listed above. This bonus lesson is to focus on the one thing, which can vary from person to person and may change over the course of your life. To embrace all seven principles from the beginning can be too challenging, but he encourages people to focus on the area where they are most in need.

By applying these principles, we can reap the benefits experienced by those living in Longevity Village while still living the modern life. To learn more about The Longevity Plan or to connect with Dr. Day, visit http://www.drjohnday.com or http://www.thelongevityplan.com.

Life on purpose | Dr. Victor Stretcher

Heal yourself with Kelly Noonan and Adam Schomer

Kelly Noonan Gores and Adam Schomer are producers of a new compelling documentary called Heal. This groundbreaking film explains that there is always something to heal, whether it be physical or emotional, but that we can be active participants in our healing though shifting our thoughts and choices.

The film features a variety of fascinating guests. One such guest is Dr. Turner, a researcher who studied spontaneous healing and identified nine causes of healing, only two of which are physical. The rest are mental, spiritual, and emotional. The nine causes of healing include:

1. Radically changing one’s diet
2. Using herbs and supplements
3. Taking control over your health
4. Following your intuition
5. Releasing suppressed emotions
6. Increasing positive emotions
7. Embracing social support
8. Deepening spiritual connection
9. Having a strong reason for living

By taking these actions, one is putting himself in the best position to heal and possibly prevent disease, as well as living a happier, healthier life.

The film also introduces the concept of using a health medium to assist in directing people on what to heal and giving them hope for relief. This speaks to the psychological aspect of healing. The power of the placebo and nocebo effects clarifies how we look at medicine and healthcare, and also shows how detrimental a negative diagnosis can be without the right mindset in place.

Meditation is highlighted as something that everyone can do that shuts off stress response and triggers “juices of life” and healing hormones. Similarly, gratitude helps us heal by triggering healing chemistry throughout the body and can be especially powerful when combined with visualization.

The film encourages viewers to get a diagnosis, but make their own prognosis by taking control of their own health. To check out the Heal documentary or for more information, visit http://www.healdocumentary.com.

Whole Motion with Derek Beres

Derek Beres is an accomplished fitness professional and the author of the new book entitled Whole Motion: Training Your Brain and Body for Optimal Health. In this book, Derek shares the interconnectedness and importance of exercise for not only one’s body but also the mind.

A healthy body is one that moves well and stays in homeostasis as much as possible. One way to achieve this to explore a range of ways to move. Continuing to move in new ways keeps both the mind and body sharp. In addition, when we focus on learning good form and use the power of muscle memory to maintain that proper form, we set ourselves up for success.

Derek also highlights several beneficial programs or concepts mentioned in the book, including:

  1. A regeneration program that assembles three basic principles of exercise that many don’t incorporate into their day to day routine, including getting up and down without pain.
  2. Using tabata as a way to get one’s metabolism and heart rate up in a short burst.
  3. The importance of interaction and relationships among those in group classes and the fitness community as a whole.

Derek also emphasizes the importance of living the present and enjoying what we do. When we engage in workouts, it is important to stay focused on what we are currently doing to maintain proper form, but also to maintain the interconnectedness of the mind and body, which yields great results for our overall health. Avoid distractions such as texting between sets or even during workouts.

Lose your menopause belly with Shawna Kaminski

Lose Your Menopause Belly by Shawna Kaminski is a short book that is jam packed with consumable and powerful information and action steps for women who seek to lose their belly fat and become healthier.

Shawna explains that as we age, our anti-aging hormone or human growth hormone naturally decreases. This is called somatopause, and is often to blame for aging issues we experience. The first outward symptom is increased belly fat. The best way to counteract this is to naturally increase HGH levels, which can be achieved through a moderately intense workout.

Choosing the right type of exercise is important, and higher intensity exercises will burn calories for an extended period of time even after you’re done exercising; this is called excess post oxygen consumption. Additionally, you are also building resistance and strength.

Shawna also shares a few key ideas from her book, including:

  • Using the HALTS (hungry, angry, lonely, tired, stressed) methodology in staying mindful of the eating choices we make.
  • Incorporating the 10-minute rule for when you don’t feel like exercising, but committing to at least 10 minutes of activity which will get you moving and hopefully encourage you to finish.
  • The snowball effect of encouraging small changes in diet and exercise over time to begin seeing positive results and encourage forward progress.

Shawna also warns that the scale is not the ultimate measure of health, as it doesn’t account for body composition. A combination of numerous measures such as one’s complexion, blood work, and how one feels may be better metrics. Shawna recommends approaching goals with a focus on the process rather than outcomes, as one always has control over the process itself.

The coffee lovers diet with Dr. Bob Arnot

The Coffee Lover’s Dietcoffee is a new book by Dr. Bob Arnot that serves as a sort of primer to understanding coffee and all the benefits it can offer. One main benefit is the great metabolism boost and performance enhancement it provides, making it the perfect pre-workout drink to consume.

There are many other health benefits of consuming coffee, including:

• decrease in heart disease with each extra cup you drink
• improvement in endothelial function
• cancer prevention
• decreased risk of liver disease and neurogenerative diseases
• decreased risk of diabetes
• decrease in the amount of sugar and fats absorbed from a meal

Dr. Arnot explains that polyphenols in coffee are key to reducing inflammation, which is often the main driver of disease. Coffee is actually a top source of antioxidants.

This helps to explain why coffee quality matters. The greater the quality, the greater the health benefits. Dr. Arnot recommends choosing a coffee where the beans were grown in a high altitude location. One should also consider a light roast, fine grind, hot temperature, and a fairly long time for extraction. He also suggests going to a local roaster to find out where their beans are sourced. Coffee should be obtained in low volumes and should not be stored in the refrigerator or freezer.

Dr. Arnot warns that some people may have difficulty metabolizing caffeine. Consuming coffee may disturb sleep, pulse, and blood pressure, for example. Those in such a situation should consume one early morning cup containing a high dose of polyphenols or selecting a decaffeinated option.

Cardiovascular health with Dr. Jay N Cohn

Dr. Jay Cohn is an accomplished cardiologist and the director of the Rasmussen Center for Cardiovascular Disease Prevention. He is also the author of a new book entitled Cardiovascular Health: How Conventional Wisdom is Failing Us.

Dr. Cohn explains that more than half of American adults will die from a cardiovascular morbid event, yet we have the ability to detect and prevent cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular disease is developed over our entire lives. Every organ is dependent on the blood supply that is delivered by the pumping of the heart into the arteries. As we age, the function and flexibility of the arteries diminishes, which may also be impacted by one’s genetics in addition to environmental factors.

The role of the endothelium is discussed, as this constitutes the inner lining of arteries and affects all arteries and capillaries in the body. This lining secretes nitric oxide which protects the inner lining of the artery from clotting, heart attacks, strokes, and cholesterol blockages. The release of nitric oxide can be greatly impaired by smoking or inflammatory diseases. If you have a known endothelial dysfunction, you should change your lifestyle and consider drug therapy to protect the endothelium.

Dr. Cohn discusses several basic dietary rules for cardiovascular health in the book. However, he points out that eating habits are less important than how much you eat and that it is more important to avoid obesity. Cholesterol has traditionally been considered as a risk factor for cardiovascular disease, yet there has been recent concern over taking statin drugs. New drugs are effective in lowering cholesterol level, but their effectiveness in preventing morbid events is not yet proven.

Finding your balance between health and a life with Nathalie Botros

Nathalie Botros is a psychologist, certified health coach, and an expert in living well. She is also the author of the new book entitled If You Are What You Eat, Should I Eat a Skinny Girl. In this book, she emphasizes her approach to living well through numerous useful tips and tools.

One tool that Nathalie recommends using is a food journal. In this journal, one should not only write down what they ate, but also why, where, and at what time. All these details will help reveal why the choice was made to eat such foods. It also helps one to determine one’s strengths and weaknesses when it comes to food.

Nathalie also discusses the importance of organic foods through the dirty dozen and the clean 15. The dirty dozen are foods that should only be consumed in their organic form due to the difficulty in cleaning off pesticides. These include apples, strawberries, grapes, celery, peaches, nectarines, cucumbers, snap peas, blueberries, spinach, sweet bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, potatoes, and hot peppers.

Conversely, the clean 15 includes foods that can be consumed as is or in their organic form. These include avocado, sweet corn, pineapple, cabbage, onion, papaya, kiwi, eggplant, cantaloupe, sweet potato, sweet peas, asparagus, mango, grapefruit, and cauliflower.

Nathalie also talks about the importance of exercising with living well. Endorphins released as a result of working out give you a positive feeling and an overall boost of energy. She recommends choosing the correct workout for you, easing into the routine, and increasing frequency when ready.

Nathalie believes that if you are happy, you can make it happen. She recommends finding something positive about each day to feel better and be more accepting and loving of yourself.

Using maximum overload for superior performance with Jacques DeVore and Roy M. Wallack

Sirens and Titans Fitness founder Jacques DeVore and accomplished endurance athlete and fitness writer Roy Wallack are the authors of a fascinating new book entitled Maximum Overload for Cyclists. While this book may be geared toward cyclists, the lessons and tips shared can be applied by anyone looking to improve their athletic performance.

DeVore and Wallack explain that weight lifting is so valuable for endurance athletes because they seek to add muscle size or recruit muscle that they already have. For cyclists especially, it is important to maintain a small size, so lower reps at a heavy weight will help to increase power.

The importance of the mini set is also discussed. This involves doing fewer reps in each set, yet the body is exerting close to its maximum with each rep. By doing this, the body recruits more and more muscle power to accommodate the max jumps, which leads to bigger overloads and more time training at maximum power. DeVore and Wallack also warn against skipping the self-assessment. It’s important to establish a starting point to avoid injury.

Many cyclists are concerned about managing their body weight. One way to do this is by adding more lean body muscle, because you will burn more calories throughout the day. The efficiency of the muscle is also important to consider, as the increase of power could be more than the increase in body weight. Athletes don’t realize how much of their muscle is really being used, as there is quite a bit of inactive muscle that can help take the load off of other muscles.

The metabolic approach to cancer with Dr. Nasha Winters and Jess Higgins Kelley

Note: The audio at the beginning of the interview had a bit of feedback.  It improves shortly into the program.

50% of people will deal with cancer in their lifetime. This informative and groundbreaking new book written by physician Dr. Nasha Winters and nutritionist Jess Higgins Kelley entitled The Metabolic Approach to Cancer gives readers the tools to manage their own healthcare.

In order for a cell to become cancerous, there are 10 security systems that a cell has to breach. This is referred to as the 10 hallmarks of cancer, which are listed below:

  1. Sustained proliferation
  2. Insensitivity to anti-growth signals
  3. Evade apoptosis
  4. Limitless replicative potential
  5. Angiogenesis sustained
  6. Metastasis
  7. Able to reprogram energy metabolism
  8. Avoid immune destruction
  9. Able to promote inflammation
  10. Genome instability and mutation

The philosophy described in the book, the Terrain Ten, details a whole body approach versus just one target or a single treatment approach. This is a complement to western medicine and provides another way to look at the cancer process—one with more of an emphasis on prevention and achieving optimal health.

Ketosis is also discussed, as it may be a good approach if you feel you have a high risk of cancer. The ketogenic diet addresses at least six of the 10 hallmarks of cancer. It also impacts the Terrain Ten in each area and works well as a preventative approach.

The wide range in food quality is also an important factor, as the food we eat is critical when it comes to our health. The authors explain that we need to look at the type of meat we are eating and the kinds of fats being used. Cooking at high temperatures also creates a small problem, as the process can create carcinogens. Lowering the heat, marinating the meat, and using herbs, spices, and seasonings are recommended.

The power of anti-inflammatory foods with Beverly Bennett

Beverly Lynn Bennett is a vegan chef and baker and the author of the new book, Anti-Inflammatory Foods and Recipes.  This book gives you a vegan approach to dealing with inflammation.

After a fall while working in the restaurant industry, Beverly severely injured her back. After meeting with several doctors, she began doing research into alternative approaches to healing, including different foods that might help her condition. She learned about anti-inflammatory foods, began including more of these in her diet, and started seeing a real change in her health.

Beverly describes the many health consequences of being in chronic inflammation. These can include an increased incidence of cancer, increased levels of insulin that can cause diabetes, and aging. Blood clots, irregular heartbeat, heart attack, or possibly Alzheimer’s Disease are other possible implications. Allergies, asthma, skin issues, and autoimmune diseases can also arise as a result.

Beverly recommends listening to your body. Treat yourself as your own experiment to determine what’s good for you and what is not. Incorporate different foods with anti-inflammatory properties and pay attention to changes in how you look and feel.

The book includes recipes with a variety of foods spanning all different colors. There are mixes of sweet and savory recipes, which are also gluten-free. Each anti-inflammatory ingredient is highlighted in a different color within each recipe, which makes the guide easy to use.

Starting your wellness project with Phoebe Lapine

Phoebe Lapine is a food writer and the author of The Wellness Project, a sort of memoir and guide describing her journey to better health.

Phoebe spent a year addressing her health issues and the approaches she took to reclaim her health after being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid gland. She decided to go the slow and steady route with her lifestyle change. She reached out to people she knew in the wellness space and developed a 12-month curriculum that covered digestive health, hormone health, alignment, sleep, hydration, and much more. Her goal was to focus not only on food and exercise, but to look at every piece and determine how they fit together moving forward in creating a healthier lifestyle. The Wellness Project describes this journey and her outcomes.

One of Phoebe’s first experiments was giving up sugar, alcohol, and caffeine. If we are not metabolizing caffeine correctly, it can cause an estrogen dominance which can be problematic for the thyroid. She made the decision to abstain from these things for a while, and incorporated them back in moderation.

Phoebe also discusses hydration tips. If you’re drinking a lot of water, you have to make sure you have something else in your body to absorb those minerals; Phoebe recommends fiber. Have a glass of water with lemon juice and sea salt upon waking up in the morning to jumpstart your hydration.

She also shares a few diet tips:
1. Try an elimination diet.
2. Eat organic when you can.
3. Keep a food journal.
4. Eat plants and vegetables.
5. Make sure you are eating high-quality meats.

Phoebe recommends daily meditation and journaling to manage stress and practice gratitude.

Raw paleo with Melissa Henig

Melissa Henig is a health and lifestyle coach and the author of Raw Paleo: The Extreme Advantages of Eating Paleo Foods in the Raw. Melissa grew up in a health-conscious home and was eating a raw vegan diet, but felt she was lacking something. She was told about a raw paleo way of eating and has been living this lifestyle ever since.

Melissa discusses a few myths surrounding raw foods. One such myth surrounds cholesterol. Many feel that it should be avoided, but it is actually an essential lipid that is in every cell of our body. Cholesterol is important for the brain, nervous system, and hormones.

Another myth surrounds raw eggs, which are not dangerous if sourced correctly. Melissa recommends sourcing pasture-raised raw eggs, as the nutritional profile is much higher. Biotin within the egg yolk is a rich source of nutrition.

Melissa explains that the benefit of eating raw foods is seen in the nutrients, as these molecules can be degraded through freezing or heating, which changes the molecules’ structure. Use food straight from nature, never frozen or heated, for the highest healing potential possible. In regards to butter, Melissa recommends raw versus pasteurized, as it lubricates the joints, is good for your skin, and aids in digestion. Again, there is a higher healing potential with raw butter as nothing is changed with the protein and fat molecules. Though it can be hard to source, you can check http://www.rawmilk.com to find possible sources near you.

Melissa wants people to know that if they source quality foods, they should not to be afraid to try raw meat.
