It is estimated that 340,000 people die in a typical year in the United States because of a lack of sunshine! Yes, you read that correctly! The number in Europe is 480,000. That’s over 800,000 people dying annually because of a lack of sunshine!

Dr. Martin looks at a Swedish study of 30,000 women that has concluded that a lack of exposure to the sun is as bad as smoking! 

Some benefits of more exposure to the sun include a stronger immune system, more “feel good” hormones such as dopamine and serotonin, and elevated nitric oxide, which is good for opening up your blood vessels.

If you’re not getting enough exposure to the sun, you need to be supplementing with vitamin D – your life depends on it!

Dr. Martin shares a study on chronic constipation and fibre. The study points to your thyroid as a factor, but the biggest factor is dehydration. It's a lack of water why you’re constipated and not because you need more fibre.

If you ask a physician today about constipation, well over 90% would tell you you're not eating enough fibre. This is the lie cereal companies have made us believe. Dr. Martin says it was his parents’ generation who became the cereal eaters. They were told to get rid of bacon and eggs and replace it with cereal. 

To this day, many people are still convinced that they need fibre to have a bowel movement. Listen to today’s episode to learn why “vitamin W,” water, is so important, especially for the proper functioning of the bowel!

Dr. Martin shares two recent studies on the effects of eating a plant based diet. When you decide to eat strictly from the plant kingdom, your risk of depression goes through the roof, and worse than that, your risk for colon cancer is greatly elevated.

We are meant to eat from both the animal kingdom and the plant kingdom. When you eat exclusively from the plant kingdom, you need to be supplementing daily with vitamins A, B12 and D. You’re simply not getting the vitamins you need from plants alone.

In today’s episode, Dr. Martin ties these two studies together and shares how the superior foods for your immune system are found in the animal kingdom.

You may not have heard the name Otto Warburg but he is a Nobel prize winning physiologist who was before his time. He started talking about how the cancer cell was different from normal cells and that it had a receptor for sugar and glucose. This was 1931.

Dr. Martin teaches on Otto Warburg’s theory of cancer in today’s episode. His theory was that cancer cells, unlike any other cell, had a generating plant and they would take glucose and ferment it into lactic acid. These cells were super hungry and would divide if you fed them. This is where Dr. Martin’s saying, “don’t feed the bears” comes from.

Warburg’s theory was largely ignored but has come full-circle in recent years as scientists are seeing that cancer is in fact a metabolic disease.

Don’t miss this important episode!

  • The Noom diet
  • Colloidal silver

You’ve probably heard the name Louis Pasteur, the inventor of pasteurization, but unless you’ve taken a class in biology, you may not know the name Antoine Béchamp. 

Both were French chemists in the 1800s who had rival theories about bacteria and viruses. Pasteur is famous for the germ theory, the accepted theory amongst science that says we need to fight bacteria and viruses. Béchamp’s theory, the terrain or host theory, says that bacteria and viruses are always going to be around and we need to focus on building our immune systems. Unfortunately, Béchamp’s theory has been rejected by science.

Dr. Martin provides a history on the two theories and again emphasizes the importance of vitamin D for a healthy immune system!

 

Jun 4, 2021

Dr. Martin shares a recent headline, “Deadly fungi are the newest emerging microbe threat all over the world.” This information, coming out of India, is showing that people who got sick from the virus were actually sick from fungus that got into their lungs. 

Fungi are very destructive, and they are resistant. Because of the overuse of antibiotics, we now have resistant superbugs, but these are in fact nothing compared to these emerging deadly fungi!

Dr. Martin shares a personal story of a patient who breathed in black mold and died within 3 weeks of exposure. Hear this story and learn why it’s so important we strengthen our immune systems in these uncertain times.

 

Jun 3, 2021

A recent study out of the US that tested the omega-3 serum levels of thousands of Americans is showing that 68% of adults are low in omega-3. What’s even more shocking is that 95% of children who participated in the study were also low in omega-3!

Dr. Martin calls the situation a catastrophe! By and large, our dietary guidelines have been infiltrated by the vegan agenda. We are eating less meat than ever before, and kids are being indoctrinated to not eat meat.

Kids need DHA to develop their brains, and those long chain fatty acids are not found in the plant kingdom. They’re only found in meat!

Listen to today’s episode to learn why omega-3s are essential to our health!

 

Jun 2, 2021

The number one condition that people, and especially women, came to see Dr. Martin is for a misdiagnosed thyroid problem. Dr. Martin has seen enough patients that he can usually spot a sluggish thyroid, but that’s because he looks for the symptoms.

The Thyroid Stimulating Hormone or TSH blood test is used to diagnose a sluggish thyroid. It was developed in 1975, and instead of relying solely on the lab results, doctors also looked for symptoms. Nowadays, the lab results are king, despite not telling the whole story!

Dr. Martin teaches on Thyroid Distress Syndrome in today’s episode and shares three important factors as to why you may have this condition.

 

Jun 1, 2021

Dr. Martin answers questions sent in by our listeners.

Some of today’s topics include:

  • Reversing hardening of arteries
  • Tanning beds
  • Absorption of supplements
  • Protein and fibroids
  • Fibrinogen and arthritis
  • Histamine intolerance
  • Sties and fungus infections
  • Necessity of tonsils

Tune in to hear Dr. Martin’s responses!

Dr. Martin continues his teaching on telomeres in today’s podcast. Telomeres are the wick-like caps that protect your DNA. The shorter they are, the quicker you will age. 

He shares a study from the Mayo Clinic that’s showing extreme tiredness is connected with the length of your telomeres... and those with shorter telomeres have a greater risk of heart disease!

Why should you be protecting your wicks? Listen to today’s podcast, where Dr. Martin unpacks this study.

 

May 28, 2021

Inside our cells, we have DNA, and on your DNA are little wick-like caps called telomeres. The length of those wicks is the key to determining how quickly you’re aging. The shorter your telomeres, the more the aging.

In today’s episode, Dr. Martin looks at two studies… one out of Ohio State University showing that high doses of DHA will not only protect your telomeres, but also help to lengthen them. 

The second study is about coffee… the true vitamin C as Dr. Martin refers to it. Coffee is a very powerful antioxidant and it actually protects your DNA. This study from the European Journal of Nutrition is reporting a 23% improvement to your telomeres in only four weeks!

Be sure to listen to this episode to learn more about anti-aging, and why it’s so important to protect your telomeres!

An article in the Daily Mail in the UK is recounting a medical doctor’s 30-day experiment where his diet consisted of 80% processed foods. He ate everything from chicken nuggets, pizzas and frozen dinners, to breads, sandwiches and cereals. The foods that most people in the United Kingdom eat on a daily basis.

A mere four weeks was all it took for the doctor to pile on weight, cloud his thinking, disrupt his sleep, increase anxiety, develop heartburn and constipation, and even get piles. But most remarkably his brain was rewired!

It’s a remarkable study and Dr. Martin explains how the doctor is essentially doing the exact opposite of The Reset. Imagine how your body could be transformed and your brain rewired by eating only eggs, meat and cheese for 30 days! 

Listen in to hear more of this doctor’s 30-day experiment!

 

May 26, 2021

We almost always hear from the media and the gurus on the internet and dieticians that we shouldn’t be eating red meat. Young people are especially indoctrinated in this belief, that a large majority are now borderline anemic.

Dr. Martin shares an observational study that came out of the UK showing that dementia decreased by 50% in those who regularly ate red meat. Over half a million participants over 10 years, the risk of dementia is down by 50% compared to those who didn't eat red meat or very little of it.

We need red meat in our diet, and Dr. Martin goes on to make this point by sharing things found in the animal kingdom that are not in the plant kingdom. 

Tune into today’s episode to hear some of the benefits of eating red meat!

 

May 25, 2021

Dr. Martin answers questions sent in by our listeners.

Some of today’s topics include:

  • Digestive enzymes
  • Germ and terrain theories
  • Vinegar 
  • Types of probiotics
  • Hyaluronic acid injections
  • Low hemoglobin
  • CRP and inflammation
  • Filtered water
  • Overdosing on vitamin K2

Tune in to hear Dr. Martin’s responses!

 

May 24, 2021

A recent study has shown that avoiding the sun is as detrimental as smoking. Yes, not going out in the sun is as healthy as smoking!

No doctor today is going to tell you that smoking is good for you. We know that smoking is 100% related to cancer. Still today one of the number one reasons people die if they smoke, is cancer.

In today’s episode, Dr. Martin unpacks this study and encourages listeners not to be confused by what they hear. Don’t be confused! The sun is good for you. You need the sun!

 

May 21, 2021

Oxalates are small molecules that have a tendency to pick up calcium in our bodies. You may have heard of oxalates when hearing about kidney stones. Most kidney stones are oxalates.

Dr. Martin explains how consuming oxalates can really irritate your gut and cause inflammation in the body. As part of The Reset, he wants you to avoid oxalates for 30 days so that your body can be rebalanced.

Listen to today’s episode to hear more about oxalates and lectin, and to learn which foods you should be avoiding!

 

May 20, 2021

Did you know that colorectal cancer is the fastest growing cancer in women, next only to breast cancer? That’s a 30% uptick in the last few years, and that's just in women, nevermind men!

We have a war going on in our gut between our good and bad bacteria. When that microbiome gets disrupted and then you add sugar and crappy carbs to the mix, you’re actually feeding an invasive army.

Whether or not you have cancer, or the makings for cancer, Dr. Martin wants you to focus on getting your diet right. You can't control what’s happening around you, but you can surely control what you put in your mouth everyday!

 

May 19, 2021

Dr. Martin discusses a headline saying that doctors are starting to worry about the diet of teen girls. He thinks we have a big problem in the world, and it’s not the virus. The big problem we have is in the thinking amongst the young people in our world today.

Dr. Martin calls it indoctrination, that young people, and especially teenage girls, are being influenced not to eat from the animal kingdom. Same goes for climate change. Kids are being taught that eating from only the plant kingdom will save our planet.

Because of this, a lot of young people are now suffering from anemia. When you have anemia, you don’t have enough oxygen. The red blood cells are not carrying enough oxygen, and that is so dangerous for your brain and overall health. 

Dr. Martin is genuinely concerned about the world that’s being created for our future generations. It’s scary to see! Tune into today’s episode to learn more!

 

May 18, 2021

  • Vitamin D and night sweats
  • Type I diabetes
  • Ginseng supplements
  • Willow bark
  • Castor oil packs

Tune in to hear Dr. Martin’s responses!

 

May 17, 2021

Did you know that your liver does 600 different things? You can't live without the liver… and did you know it can even regenerate? You truly are fearfully and wonderfully made!

Dr. Martin gets asked several times a week about a condition called hemochromatosis, which is increased iron levels in your blood. The liver is accumulating too much iron and it’s all because of a fatty liver!

So how do you get rid of hemochromatosis? You need to empty your liver… and that starts with changing your food! Empty your liver, and you'll empty your iron. Dr. Martin explains more of this on today’s episode!

 

May 14, 2021

SIBO stands for Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth. In this episode, Dr. Martin teaches why he thinks the word bacterial needs to be replaced with a different word.

So many times we’re prescribed antibiotics for various ailments. When you take an antibiotic, you actually wipe out all the good bacteria. This in turn sets you up for a bacteria overgrowth in the small intestine. Medicine says it’s bacteria, but Dr. Martin says it’s yeast.

Listen in to today’s episode to hear Dr. Martin’s take on this specific condition. He shares what causes SIBO and what steps you can take to eliminate it

 

May 13, 2021

Leptin is the hormone that tells our brains, “Okay, I'm full. I don't need to eat anymore and now I'm going to increase your metabolism.” 

Dr. Martin shows listeners in today’s episode the stark difference between 1 pound of fat, versus 5 pounds of fat. He stresses the difference between them is because of insulin. 

Leptin and insulin work together. When you eat crappy carbs and sugars, you end up developing insulin resistance. When this happens, your body makes more fat, and this causes more leptin to be secreted. Eventually, you develop resistance to leptin too! 

A chain reaction is set off in our bodies… but there is good news! This resistance can be reversed, and it comes down to what we eat.

 

May 12, 2021

There’s an epidemic going on… and it’s that very few people know they're low in vitamin D! 

In today’s episode, Dr. Martin gives 9 major signs you should suspect you’re low in vitamin D.

Doctors in Canada and in the United States... and all over the world, really... are 50 years behind when it comes to vitamin D. The numbers used to calculate recommended intake are wrong, as doctors only considered the benefits to bones, and not the immune system.

Your immune system needs vitamin D to function properly, and if you’re not getting it from the sun, you need to supplement.
