For most of us, getting enough sunshine during the winter months is impossible. That’s why so many are deficient in vitamin D!

Dr. Martin looks at two studies about sunshine in today’s podcast. 

The first one out of Denmark says the more sun you get, your likelihood of getting breast cancer is decreased by 17%. Breast cancer is quickly overtaking lung cancer as the number one cancer in North America! 

The second study, hot off the press, says those who get the most exposure to the sun have a decreased risk of serious side effects from COVID-19. It is imperative that people get out in the sun, especially now when we are being forced to stay at home!

Tune in to hear more about these studies and a brief history about sunscreens and suntan lotion!

In today’s podcast, Dr. Martin shares, “13 Signs You May Be a Carboholic.” If you are experiencing several of these symptoms, you are in fact a carboholic! Don’t wait for your blood sugars to go high, it’s time to cut the carbs now.

Dr. Martin again looks at yesterday’s study. With just two weeks of lowering carbohydrate intake, things got much better for diabetics. Diabetics got better rapidly because the problem with diabetes is food. Simple as that. It's food.

The results from this study are incredible and the world needs to hear about it!

Imagine what cutting the carbs in your diet can do for you.

What would the results look like after four weeks?

In the United States, they’re now spending a BILLION dollars a day on diabetes. Not to cure diabetes, just to manage it!

Dr. Martin talks about a study on diabetes showing some wonderful side effects of changing to a low carb diet. In just two weeks, you’ll see a decrease in A1C levels, body fat, triglycerides and insulin resistance. There is no drug in the universe that can do this for diabetes!

Diabetes is all about food, what you eat… and Dr. Martin is calling this one of the greatest studies that has been published in the last several years!

Listen to today’s episode to hear more of this study as well as more unintended consequences of the response to the COVID-19 virus!

 

Apr 26, 2021

Dr. Martin discusses how men are extremely low in testosterone in today’s podcast.

Apr 22, 2021

Bonnie and Clyde were the famous bank robbing couple during the Great Depression. You probably already know their story, but they were quite dangerous – believed to have murdered at least 9 police officers, and 4 civilians during their 3 year reign of terror.

Dr. Martin uses their story to illustrate two dangerous conditions that will rob you of your brain health – high blood pressure and high blood sugar. They are the precursor signs of metabolic syndrome!

Dr. Martin talks about what you need to do to get rid of Bonnie and Clyde, and in turn protect your brain against the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Listen to today’s podcast to find out what!

 

Apr 21, 2021

Dr. Martin shares a study showing higher levels of circulating insulin are associated with higher levels of cancer. Diabetics are already 50% more likely to have a heart attack or stroke… but this study is showing they are now twice as likely to get cancer!

Why the increase in cancer rates? It’s called food... and it’s called the food industry who wants you hooked on sugars and crappy carbohydrates. In the 1970s, we were consuming 50 pounds of sugar in a year… now, it’s 200 pounds! No wonder we are metabolically unwell!

The three questions everyone should ask themselves when deciding what to eat... Will it increase my inflammation? Will it hurt my immune system? Will it increase my high circulating insulin? You may not be able to control your environment, but you can control what you eat!

Don’t miss this very informative episode!

A staggering statistic is that 60 million Americans are on Proton Pump Inhibitors. PPIs stop the stomach from producing excess acid, which in turn reduces acid reflux and GERD. Instead of fixing the root cause, the diet, people are relying on these prescriptions that were never meant for long-term use!

New guidelines published by the Journal of Post-Acute and Long-Term Medicine, is now telling doctors to stop prescribing Proton Pump Inhibitors long-term. The benefits of taking PPIs are outweighed by some pretty serious side effects!

Dr. Martin discusses these side effects in today's episode. He explains how proton pumps work, and what happens when we don’t have enough acidity in the stomach. He also shares what can be done to get off PPIs permanently.

 

Apr 19, 2021

High fructose corn syrup is now found in nearly all processed foods. It’s inexpensive, sweeter than sugar, is very addictive… and the food industry knows this! Your body metabolizes it completely differently than with sugar, and this is problematic!

Dr. Martin discusses a study from the University of Florida showing a connection between high fructose corn syrup and Alzheimer’s. Unlike any other food, it almost instantly forces an immune response creating inflammation… and this causes havoc in the brain!

How do we stop this overreaction from our immune system? Simply put, eliminate sugar from your diet. Dr. Martin shares this and what we can do to regenerate our brains. 

Don’t miss this episode!

It was Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, who said, “All disease begins in the gut,” nearly 2500 years ago. He was onto something, because many metabolic, autoimmune, and cognitive diseases share one thing in common… a leaky gut.

Dr. Martin discusses two studies in today’s podcast that show the dangers of gut permeability. He explains how there’s an invisible war going on in your gut. We have a thin lining of epithelial cells in the gut, and when this barrier is gone, excess permeability is caused… which is leaky gut!

Listen to today’s podcast to learn the 3 things causing gut permeability, and what you can do to fix the problem! A hint… it starts with food!

 

Apr 14, 2021

Dr. Martin discusses several health headlines that magnify how metabolically unwell we are. From the top sources of calories in the US diet, to researchers now knowing what causes cold sores, to the importance of lowering triglycerides… they are all connected! 

Nearly all foods now contain high-fructose corn syrup, which causes insulin to elevate, which in turn causes our cortisol levels to rise. High cortisol levels is what causes the herpes virus to be activated, causing cold sores or shingles. When we have too much insulin circulating, harmful triglycerides are formed in the bloodstream. This is dangerous to our heart and brain!

The bottom line is that metabolic syndrome all has to do with food!

Dr. Martin also shares two health headlines about the amazing benefits of vitamin D when it comes to fending off COVID-19 and preventing breast cancer. It’s sunshine that we all need as 80% of the population is deficient in vitamin D!

Tune into today’s podcast to learn why we are in so much trouble!

 

Apr 13, 2021

A recent headline from the FDA recommends the daily dose of sugar is 50 grams. One teaspoon of sugar is 4 grams, so that’s over 12 teaspoons of sugar! Any sugar in our bloodstream is toxic and our bodies know this.

Dr. Martin connects this headline to the father of modern medicine, Canadian physician Sir William Osler (1849-1919). Osler revolutionized the way in which medical education was taught during his tenure at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.

He was the first physician to identify the cause of gout as that of high absorption of sugar and fructose, not because of red meat. Even in the 1800s, doctors knew that sugar played a role in many of our diseases!

Dr. Martin also discusses a second headline, “Stop Eating After Sunset.” The benefits of not eating after dinner include decreases in fat mass, blood pressure, triglycerides, and oxidative damage, as well as a decline of inflammation. Start a good habit, and stop eating at night!

 

Apr 12, 2021

Dr. Martin goes over a recent study showing that heart and brain health go together. The study shows a direct correlation between cardiovascular disease and cognitive decline. The same things causing heart disease are the same things that cause Alzheimer’s.

In the United States and Canada, the number one killer is heart disease, followed closely by cancer. Alzheimer’s disease is now the number three killer. In the United Kingdom, Alzheimer’s is number one!

It’s metabolic syndrome that connects cardiovascular disease to cognitive decline. Your heart, brain, liver, pancreas… they are all connected… and finally science is agreeing with what Dr. Martin has been saying for years!

Dr. Martin also looks at a study showing that microplastics are being found in the placenta! This shocking study shows that environmental factors like plastics are affecting us more than we realize!

 

Apr 9, 2021

  • Protein powders
  • Springtime allergies
  • Life after a hysterectomy

...and more!

Apr 8, 2021

Dr. Martin discusses some recent studies he found interesting. He looks at studies showing a connection between loneliness and cancer, how fructose causes inflammation in the brain, studies on vitamin D and K2… and even a study on how coffee can be a fat buster!

There have been a lot of unintended consequences with COVID-19. One of them is the diagnosing of cancer has been delayed for many. Another consequence is loneliness. When we are lonely, our bodies are stressed. When we are stressed, our bodies create cortisol and this can affect our immune system. 

Dr. Martin also talks about the dangers of inflammation in our brains, and how high fructose corn syrup is contributing to mitochondrial dysfunction and oxidization of the hippocampus; our memory centre of the brain. He cautions those who are metabolically unwell to especially avoid sugar.

Tune into today’s podcast to hear more about these interesting studies!

 

Apr 7, 2021

Dr. Martin shares his favourite tests to determine if you are metabolically unwell. When requesting a blood test from your doctor, be sure to ask for testing of the following:

  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin B12
  • C-reactive protein (CRP) 
  • Triglycerides
  • HDL cholesterol
  • Fasting glucose or A1C
  • Fibrinogen
  • Homocysteine

Into today’s episode, Dr. Martin explains each test and shares the optimal range you should be in. He explains that many of the tests are not routine, so you need to ask your doctor.

He continues to stress the importance of vitamin D and shares how doctors got it wrong, saying cholesterol is a bad thing!

 

Apr 6, 2021

A scary statistic out of the United States – every 38 seconds, someone has a heart attack. Every 38 seconds! Continuing from yesterday’s episode about metabolic disease, Dr. Martin looks at the immune system, and how you are ‘fearfully and wonderfully’ made.

He explains how T cells are one of the important white blood cells. Their purpose is to seek out and destroy bacteria and viruses found in the blood. What makes your T cells more effective, causing them to take off? It’s vitamin D!

Dr. Martin talks about the importance of vitamin D and shares several things you can do to improve the response of your immune system. He also warns how sugar essentially puts your immune system asleep!

Apr 5, 2021

Studies have shown that 88% of our population is metabolically unwell. Dr. Martin discusses the 5 symptoms used to determine if you have metabolic syndrome. 

Tune into today’s episode to learn the symptoms and two other indicators that point towards metabolic disease.

Dr. Martin also discusses two pet peeves he has with how COVID-19 was handled. The majority of people who died had pre-existing conditions. The elephant in the room is that these conditions were all due to insulin; the food we eat.

He comments on how the response to the pandemic, for the first time in history, has focused more on the older generation than our children. People are scared of dying, and this fear has been driving the agenda!

 

Apr 2, 2021

Dr. Martin answers questions sent in by our listeners.

Today’s topics include:

  • Reducing risk of blood clots
  • Importance of drinking water
  • HDL cholesterol
  • Colostrum and its benefits 
  • Vitamin K2

Apr 1, 2021

In today’s episode, Dr. Martin talks about the true vitamin E… exercise... and how resistance training is by far the best exercise you can do for your body!

He discusses senescent cells and how they act similarly to free radicals. Senescent cells don’t die off and eventually start damaging healthy cells. This process accelerates aging! Dr. Martin talks about how exercise slows down this aging process.

He also discusses how having more muscle will help you live longer. Studies have shown that we lose 3 to 8 percent of our muscle mass each decade. For someone who reaches their 80s, potentially 50% of their muscle mass is lost!

Tune into today’s episode to learn more about the benefits of exercise!
