Did you know that the food you eat can communicate with your cells? The foods we ingest have microRNAs, small cellular pieces that can interfere with messages from our cells to create proteins involved in cell aging, tumor formation, tumor suppression, bone growth and more. MicroRNAs have been researched for over 20 years and thousands of them have been identified in that time.  While research in the realm of microRNAs has been heavily focused on cancer we are now starting to see data on how our lifestyle choices, exercise, physical fitness and the type of diet we consume directly affect microRNA levels in our body.  In this episode Doc J breaks down why microRNAs may be a way to assess the impact of your diet and lifestyle on your overall health and what diet and lifestyle interventions seem to make the most impact on overall health.

What You’ll Learn In Today’s Episode:

  • How herbs and veggies protect us from cancer
  • Why diets excluding entire food groups may not benefit us
  • How microRNA might be a novel way to measure health status
  • How alcohol consumption and physical fitness affect microRNA

A detox can be useful to clear toxins from the body and reset after a long run of eating out, making poor choices and drinking too much but is it really worth it? Too many people try to detoxify their bodies but don’t have the vitamins and minerals in their body to do so. Unfortunately, all too often we detox, don’t even know if we cleared anything out of the system and then go right back to re-toxing ourselves the day after the detox. After you finish a detox the goal is to focus habits to keep your immune system running on all cylinders and your blood sugar balanced but we rarely do this. We are inundated with all kinds of viruses, bacteria, mold and other toxins that detoxes can’t clear and your body is fighting daily to keep at bay. Add to that our sugar cravings, snack food habits and high stress lifestyles that keep our blood sugar out of balance and we have a recipe for quick aging disaster. In this episode Doc J breaks down why detoxing every so often is not enough to ward off autoimmune disease, heart disease and diabetes.  

What You’ll Learn In Today’s Episode:

  • Why detoxing isn’t enough to stay healthy
  • How fad diets popular right now can make you sick
  • Why some of the fittest people have trashed cells
  • How to keep your cells primed to detoxing all the time
