The expert "literature" on diet and nutrition in this country is all over the place. This week, Dr. Jack and Mary attempt to simplify things by deflating several myths of a vegan or vegetarian diet. Turns out all of the back and forth over the years on recommendations related to cholesterol, fat and nutrition have created schizophrenia in our diets and the way we think about food! This is especially true of meat-free or animal by-product-free diets, but the problem is, there is real danger of being malnourished if you don't eat meat.
While we respect the reasons why people are interested in pursuing vegetarian and vegan lifestyles, there are some critical things you must understand if you are going to risk the hit to your nourishment that these lifestyles entail.

This week Dr. Jack and Mary tackle a growing health problem for more and more Americans. It's actually problems, because our medical system's drug-addled approach has created numerous, chronic conditions that are slowly killing their patients.
We're talking about Heartburn.
In some ways, our body's first warning that we are probably eating garbage, heartburn has been a large-scale health problem for as long as we've had industrialized food production. Not to say there weren't serious reflux problems more than 100 years ago, but it wasn't impacting nearly everyone 100 years ago the way it seems to today.
But if you think the solution is to suppress acid production in your stomach, you need to listen to this very serious correction in your thinking.
People are taking drugs meant to be taken for weeks to an address isolated event, and they are taking them for their entire adult lives. Are you one of them?

This is our most important podcast to date! With a very special announcement for an incredible new, free service, Dr. Jack and Mary dive into the science of heart health.
The problem with the modern day state of things (believe it or not, nearly 50 years after LBJ's tragic, fatal heart attack) is that doctors try to measure for existing damage. If your heart does not contain the scarring associated with prior heart attacks, EKG's will not detect or report any problems; even in a severely unhealthy heart!
With everything else in modern medicine, common sense takes a back seat to radical treatments of heart ailments, even as decades of research has gone unchallenged about the critical role nutrition plays in heart health.
The heart cells are replaced every 30 days. What you eat matters, and will inform the health of your heart into the future. Because the heart is the first to receive nutrients in the bloodstream, you can begin to nourish your heart in minutes, if you are eating the right foods, or taking the right concentrated whole food supplements.
Stay tuned to hear about the re-emergence of fabulous medical technology that you can now take advantage of, free of charge (in Utah, at least)!

Sugar makes us sick. The USDA doesn't even have to pretend this is controversial anymore. They simply ignore the facts instead, approving sugar-laden morsels at an ever increasing rate. Based on well-researched, well-documented findings, Dr. Jack and Mary have an amazing list of unhealthy and unsavory facts about refined sugar and we're going to share it with you today!
It's not just that sugar is unhealthy; it's also addictive, signaling some of the same markers in the brain that opiates will trigger, and causing real withdraw symptoms if you stop eating sugar, cold turkey.
These alarming trends of our weight, our general health, and our ever increasing consumption of refined sugars is only leading in one direction; the wrong one.
Tune in the learn some essential facts about this scourge on our health and some things you can do to minimize your own risk, while still enjoying the occasional snack.

We'd like to think that when we get sick, the last bastion of hope for health care, our doctors, urgent care facilities, and hospitals would be the place to be for the best chance to get well.
If only this were true every time...
There are numerous cases of people winding up in worse shape than when they went in for help in the first place.
Dr. Jack and Mary peel back the layers on several studies of this phenomenon to learn more about what we should all be watching out for, if we do have to go to the doctor, or worse, need a hospital stay.
If you or anyone you know has major health care coming up soon, you will want to know about the 12 ways the health care system may be blowing it, and making us worse off!
The most important theme here is that you are empowered to ask questions and demand answers.
What is the main problem?
What do I need to do?
Why is it important for me to do this?
This podcast will give you some surprising things to consider.

The concept of methylation keeps coming up since the confusion around the MTHFR variation first took hold. The body's ability to reign in inflammation events is based on the process of methylation. And methylation is an essential process regulated within the body by the MTHFR gene.
So it's no surprise that serious health crises emerge when methylation processes are disrupted within the body.
This week Dr. Jack and Mary give us some much needed insight into the science of methylation, and things all of us can do to mitigate the risk of MTHFR mutation or abhorrent expression.
It's not a binary. Methylation and its effectiveness in individuals is on a spectrum. Most of us could benefit from support of the methylation processes within our own bodies. Tune in for details.

Doctors die too, and they don't die like the rest of us.
This week Dr. Jack and Mary talk about a major Johns-Hopkins survey doctors related to their own wishes for emergency care if they were to lose the ability to communicate those wishes.
Doctors have a unique perspective on the ends of lives, since they are involved more often than not, more-or-less directly with the events at the ends of many lives.
Tune in and be stunned to learn some of the findings in this study. Do you know how you feel about your own case and what you would want done? Perhaps we should let these doctors be our guide!

Fat remains one of the most misunderstood, and even misrepresented substances available for human consumption. This week Dr. Jack and Mary get into the thick of fat.
What's the real difference between saturated and unsaturated fat? What's the difference between mono-unsaturated fat and poly-unsaturated fat?
Rather than oversimplified "good-fat/bad-fat" dichotomies, Dr. Jack and Mary help us understand the complicated science of fat, and what's really going on in our own bodies when fat is introduced in it's various forms.
Tune in to learn the essentials of fat science and fat history in our crazed, US food industry.

This week Dr. Jack and Mary share their Top 20 Protocols list. For various reasons over the years, both personally and professionally, these 20 protocols have proven time and again to be effective and necessary for living an optimal, healthy life.

Helping people learn how to heal themselves is incredibly rewarding!
Great work if you can get it...
