The Microbiome gets a lot of attention these days, but are you protecting your Glycobiome? Today on The Girlfriend Doctor, I welcome renowned fertility expert Dr. Robert Kiltz. He has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Parents Magazine, and CNBC for his work making IVF affordable and accessible. Using diet and mindset to supplement low-dose IVF therapy, Dr. Kiltz has reduced the cost of IVF to a third of the national average. He is investigating the efficacy of the American plant-based diet, and how a keto-carnivore diet could reduce inflammation, heal chronic diseases, and promote fertility.  Contrary to popular belief, fat is fuel to the body. When you consume sugar and amino acids, they are processed and converted into fat by the liver, which is evidence that your body's primary fuel source is fat. Plant-based diets potentially expose you to pathogens and microbes that ferment in the gut, destroy the Glycobiome, and cause chronic illness.  In this episode, Dr. Kiltz shares how his approach to nutrition is helping women become fertile again. He teaches the dangers of a plant-based diet, and how a carnivore diet may be the solution you have been looking for!   KEY TAKEAWAYS [3:20] Affordable and accessible fertility treatments  [4:00] Natural and low doses of fertility treatments  [7:00] How the standard American diet contributes to infertility  [9:00] Positive mindset is often the catalyst for healing  [12:00] The different approaches for men and women  [14:00] Fat is the only fuel for your body [16:00] Plant sugars are the leading cause that damages our dy [22:00] What is the Glycobiome [27:00] Questioning the efficacy of the microbiome hypothesis  [33:00] The estrogen and progesterone in plants create endocrine disruptors [34:00] The Carnivor space is the healing space [36:00] 99.9% of pesticides are made from plants [37:00] Fat goes straight to the lymphatic system  [42:00] Removing toxic components from your diet  [49:00] Visualizing your healed body [53:00] Healing the Glycobiome with fat and fasting    MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE CYN Fertility  Instagram   MEMORABLE QUOTES “I believe that fat is the only fuel for our body. Sugar is not, glucose is not a fuel for the body. It’s a precursor to our fuel, and a high plant-based, low-fat diet turns out to damage every nook and cranny of our body, especially the blood vessels.”  [13:36] - Dr.Kiltz “The exposure of plant antigens and the microbes that ferment in our gut, and destroy the Glycobiome is the leading cause of all disease.” [35:17] -Dr.Kiltz   To learn more about me and to stay connected, visit the links below: Website: The Girlfriend Doctor Instagram: The Girlfriend Doctor  
Are you in tune with your gut intuition? Today on The Girlfriend Doctor, I discuss the mind-body connection with leading functional-medicine expert, Dr. Will Cole. He is among the top 50 functional and integrative doctors in America and the author of The New York Times best-seller, Intuitive Eating. In this episode, we explore the connection between mental and physical health from his soon-to-be-released book, Gut Feelings.  Conventional medicine often overlooks the mind-body connection, usually only addressing a single aspect of health. Dr. Cole’s comprehensive approach to healing trauma, the gut microbiome, and restoring homeostasis to the body is helping patients reclaim their wellness.  Emotional stress has the power to reduce the effectiveness of your healthy habits, which is why you cannot separate mental health from your physical well-being. Dr.Cole guides you through a thorough analysis of your physical and emotional traumas to find the underlying factors causing chronic disease, thyroid issues, and digestive disorders.

Where mental health is relegated as separate from physical health, but the reality is that mental health is physical health, and it’s really  a functional medicine conversation around mental health, and around trauma, and chronic stress, and shame, and how these mental emotions, spiritual things impact our physical body.” [4:35] -Dr. Cole    “I see people up against seemingly insurmountable things, and just as trauma can be inherited, so can healing. I see people break the chains of pain, break the chains of disease, break the chains of dysfunction by what you can do today.”  [25:50] -Dr. Cole   To learn more about me and to stay connected, visit the links below: Website: The Girlfriend Doctor Instagram: The Girlfriend Doctor

As a physician and Stanford lecturer, Dr. Molly Maloof has spent her career providing personalized medicine services to high-performing technology executives, billionaire investors, Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, and Academy Award-winning actors. What she noticed is that women, specifically, were feeling the spark that once energized their lives beginning to dim. Not just metaphorically but in a measurable reduction in the energy output from their cells. In response, Dr. Molly developed a science-backed program focused on mitochondrial health, used successfully by her patients, which offered lifestyle changes that target the unique biology of women and provide immediate and long-term benefits--now available in her book The Spark Factor. “The idea is steady gradual improvement, not perfection. The goal is to help get your spark back, so you can spend the rest of your life empowered, alive, mobile, and resilient,” she writes.   To learn more about me and to stay connected, visit the links below: Website: The Girlfriend Doctor Instagram: The Girlfriend Doctor

Today on The Girlfriend Doctor, I am joined by Dr.Mary Claire Haver, founder of the Galveston diet!

Every woman is unique but by focusing on lowering inflammation and balancing your hormones, you can reclaim your health at any age. In this episode, Dr. Haver teaches you how you can add intermittent fasting to your menopause tool kit, to help you combat inflammation and balance your hormones.

If you surrender to the fact that perfection is unattainable and confidence is created from competence, you will become unstoppable.

Today on the Girlfriend Doctor, I discuss inner and outer beauty with Rachel Varga. She is a Double Board Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist. After personally performing over 20,000 procedures, Rachel now trains physicians and nurses, across the globe, to perform safe and holistic treatments. In her research, she has discovered some disturbing realities about the technology, products and even the lights you are exposed to in your daily life. In this episode, she provides healthy alternatives to toxic routines in hopes of reducing your toxic burden.  You may be unknowingly burdening your skin with electromagnetic frequencies that are actually making your blood sticky. Without proper circulation, your blood can not effectively deliver nutrients to your skin and also inhibits its ability to purge metabolic waste. Rachel teaches you how to mitigate exposure by grounding yourself in nature and detoxing from your devices at night.  Your skin is your body’s final alert system; redness, dryness or puffy skin indicates a deeper health issue. Topical treatments alone will have little effect on these symptoms. If you want to enhance the effects of your skincare routine, getting outside, reducing your toxic burden and detoxing from harmful frequencies will help you achieve natural beauty from the inside out! KEY  TAKEAWAYS [2:30] Red, dry and hyperpigmentation skin is last warning sign of a deeper health problem  [4:00] Derma rolling allows actives like copper peptide penetrate deeper into the skin [6:00] Instead of a Gua Sha stone, use your fingertips to energize your face and stimulate fascia  [10:00] Grounding in nature encourages healthy electromagnetic interactions in your blood  [11:00] Cut electromagnetics exposure at night with airplane mode and turning off your router  [12:50] Harmful blue light emitted from laptops, phones and LED penetrate deeper than sunlight  [14:26] Blue blocking glasses shield the delicate skin around your eyes and improve sleep [17:30] Pure epsom salt, avocado oil, baking soda and clean bar of soap for a detox bath [20:00] With any type of autoimmune disease, botox or laser treatments could be too toxic [23:40] Plastic bottled water introduces dangerous microplastic in your body MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE Rachel Varga Research Use Promo Code: ANNACABECA for 15% off consultation School of Radiance   MEMORABLE QUOTES “When we’re outside, we’re barefoot and touching a tree, what happens is our red blood cells go back to the state they want to go back to which is nicely bouncing off one another like inner tubes or doughnuts; carrying oxygen and nutrients to the cells, to the organs, hello! The brain, the skin, the liver and carrying away metabolic waste products like CO2.”  [10:37]   “The LED’s that are more cost and time efficient, energy efficient rather; they’re actually damaging the skin, not to mention, messing with your hormones and your sleep and also, I postulate, promoting hair loss.”   [13:49]    To learn more about me and to stay connected, visit the links below: Website: The Girlfriend Doctor Instagram: The Girlfriend Doctor
Today on the Girlfriend Doctor, I uncover the beauty of suffering with Dr. Jill Carnaham, a board certified integrative medicine specialist and author of Unexpected. As a patient, Dr. Carnaham survived breast cancer, crohn’s disease, leaky gut syndrome and despite facing her own mortality now seeks to help those suffering from a similar fate. Known as the Sherlock Holmes of medicine, she instills compassion and an investigative approach to medicine, to find the root cause of her patients' illnesses.  Growing up on a farm using the toxic herbicide Atrazine, triggered Dr.Carnaham’s lifelong battle with breast cancer. What was once an uncommon diagnosis for a woman her age is now prevalent in even younger patients; as our culture accepts the use of dangerous chemicals, destructive diets and obsessive work habits that destroy your immune system. Although it is agonizing to witness this increased suffering from sickness, it is possible to forge a new path to health for yourself and society. Amidst the steady suffering of disease, fatigue and burnout, Dr. Carnaham remains dedicated to compassion for herself and for others. Within her pain, she found that patients, like herself, are in desperate need of hope. Pain can be a profound teacher to those willing to seek meaning amidst their suffering. When facing death, you instinctually recognize the beauty of life and it is this lesson that Dr. Carnaham imparts to you.

You literally go into dissociation at some points and all of that physiology in your body has to come out somewhere so often it comes out in illness.”  [17:40] “The truth is, if we can look and we can find those pearls in the midst of the suffering, they turn out to be the most beautiful things in our life.” [29:16] “There is a powerful healing in that kindness and compassion and it starts with us and then we can share it with the world.”[38:20]   To learn more about me and to stay connected, visit the links below: Website: The Girlfriend Doctor Instagram: The Girlfriend Doctor
Today on The Girlfriend Doctor, Elle Russ, author of The Paleo Thyroid Solution, joins us to discuss thyroid health. Elle has condensed years of knowledge from treating her own hypothyroidism to help women struggling to diagnose, treat or manage their thyroid health. Your Thyroid gland is integral to regulating everything from your sex hormones, metabolism and your endocrine system. Unfortunately, most conventional doctors are decades behind on the leading thyroid treatments and often make detrimental mistakes when treating patients.  You know your body better than any doctor could hope to with labs and testing. While there are general ranges for healthy hormones, every person has different needs that require specialized testing and individualized treatment. There is no “one size fits all” for thyroid treatment and many doctors are treating patients with an antiquated TSH protocol that is leaving patients in worse condition than they started at. If you feel worse after receiving hormone treatments, it’s a good sign to stop and find a functional doctor who has a better understanding of thyroid health.  Sometimes, the simplest changes have a huge impact. Some patients may need permanent hormone replacements while others have cured Hashimoto’s by detoxing and changing their diet. Ultimately, your health depends on your intuition and finding the right balance for you. In this episode, Elle teaches you everything you need to know to take your health into your own hands so you can detox, rebalance and start feeling whole again.   KEY TAKEAWAYS [3:30] The first signs of perimenopause that can be confused with thyroid issues  [5:00] The frustration of finding a doctor equipped to treat hypothyroidism [7:50] Inadequate thyroid hormones leads to accelerated aging, PCOS, and infertility [9:00] Often times hypothyroidism manifests gynecologically in women [11:00] Many doctors are misinterpreting labs and worsening patients conditions [14:00] The outdated TSH protocol that is keeping patients sick today [20:20] Optimal ranges of thyroid hormones to look for on your labs [23:00] Sometimes all you need is diet and lifestyle changes!

On this episode of The Girlfriend Doctor, I discussed mitochondrial health with Sara Banta, owner of Accelerated Health Products, a line of natural supplements aimed at balancing your overall health. She is a health coach and biohacker, with her supplements you can bolster your immune system by giving your body everything it is not getting from the food you’re eating. Mitochondrial health is critical to the health of your entire body and begins at the cellular level which is why supplements are so important when addressing any health issue.  Sara works synergistically with nutrition, lifestyle and her supplements, which focus on frequency enhanced detox that help your body get rid of the toxins overloading your system. Your body is a delicate ecosystem and can easily become dysregulated when exposed to common toxins used in daily life. Your liver is the detoxification pathway of your body and many foods that are staples of a healthy diet may actually be burdening your liver.

On this episode of The Girlfriend Doctor, we sat down with Dr. Campbell and Danny Grannick, two pioneers who are uniting the world of dental and medical care today. Doctors are not trained to account for dental health when diagnosing patients, leaving many people vulnerable to Alzheimer's, Cancer, Infertility and a slew of other complications that are ultimately avoidable. Dr. Ellie Campbell has been working in family medicine for 30 years and is board certified by the American Academy of Integrative Medicine. Like most doctors, she was never addressing oral health with her patients until she witnessed the decline of a patient suffering from an unknown dental infection. Now, her stance is that absolutely no medical team is complete without an oral hygienist on staff.  Danny Grannick has developed an at home test kit ,using  PCR technology, to give people insight into the microbiome of their mouth. Understanding the imbalance of microbes in your mouth gives your dentist and doctor the information to address infections, prevent further decay and even prevent disease. Dentists and doctors alike are waking up to the reality that our entire body is interconnected and the two practices can no longer remain separate, because in reality they are not.  KEY TAKEAWAYS [6:00] No medical team is complete without a dental hygienist [13:00] How Bristle’s oral health testing is changing disease prevention [19:30] Recognizing the signs of dental diseases and how to address it [26:00] Why brushing and flossing are not enough to prevent oral decay [31:30] Identifying the cause of cavities   [34:00] Safely removing heavy metal fillings  [36:20] Using Ozone treatment on an infected tooth in order to prevent a root canal [39:05] Not all cavities need to be filled: Re-mineralizing superficial cavities [41:20] Understanding your Bristle home test   HOW TO CONNECT WITH OUR GUEST Dr.Campbell: Danny Grannick: Bristle:  Promo Code: DrAnna Find an Enlightened Dentist Near You: AAOSH   MEMORABLE QUOTE “We are an ecosystem and we need to be in balance but our diet, our drinks that we consume, our breathing all affects what happens in our mouth, leading to the epidemic of disease that is identified in the mouth but has symptoms everywhere else in our body.” [7:30] -Dr. Campbell “Unfortunately many dentists are not enlightened to the fact that these periodontal bacteria can cause diseases outside of the mouth.”[20:05] - Dr. Campbell   “Acidity in the mouth, not sugar, causes cavities.” [23:46] -Dr. Campbell   “The idea is if you do these two simple things you shouldn't get oral disease but we know that’s not true. Even people who do brush and floss twice a day, cavities and gum disease are the most prevalent diseases of the planet! They have been  for the last 30 years.” [26:00] -Danny Grannick   To learn more about me and to stay connected, visit the links below: Website: The Girlfriend Doctor Instagram: The Girlfriend Doctor
On this episode of The Girlfriend Doctor, we sat down with Dr. Kelly Brogan a clinical psychiatrist turned holistic psychiatrist after witnessing the toll addictive psychiatric drugs had on her patients. The endemic of over diagnosis has convinced many people they are sick when in fact they may just be suffering from their own narrative. If you believe you are a victim it can manifest outwardly as anxiety and depression. You won’t find solace in a prescription but by recognizing your defense mechanisms and reclaiming your power of choice, you may find you weren't actually sick to begin with!  You are rarely truly victimized in this life, because everyday you have the autonomy to choose your outlook, your location, your reactions and an infinite amount of things that make up your experience. Understanding your desires and consciously deciding  to pursue and communicate them will naturally uplift your spirit. Exploring your sexuality is just a microcosm to the greater dynamic of your life, if you can communicate your needs to a partner you can carry that capacity into every other aspect of your existence, no longer feeling victimized but empowered at every opportunity.   KEY TAKEAWAYS [4:00] Defense mechanisms hidden in judgment, superiority and control [6:10] Stepping out of your victim mentality [9:00] Awareness begins in your body [10:20] The root of all your defense mechanisms  [12:00] The Existential Kink: Having is evidence of wanting [15:20] Suffering ends where meaning begins [18:10] Using your power of attention [26:30] The dark reality of marketing addictive pharmaceutical [31:20] Taking radical responsibility  [36:20] Reclaiming your power of choice!

She is making fasting accessible and safe for women to practice in their daily lives. The key is to build awareness of your cycle and strategically plan your fasting to support your hormones. By tapping into your body’s wisdom, you can reap the full health and spiritual benefits of fasting.  It is no coincidence that most cultures practice fasting because it allows your body and mind to cleanse. Fasting is known to increase your energy and by integrating fasting into your life you can live longer, healthier and happier lives.

I love the longer fasts for women they just have to be timed to a woman’s cycle if she still has it”  [2:48]   “If we look at a woman’s menstrual cycle, when hormones go high during ovulation and the week before our period, that’s when things have to change and each one of those sections have to be a little bit different.”  [11:35]     “ When you’re fasting you’re changing your whole microbiome in your gut and when we look at some of the critics of fasting there’s a lot of people, mostly men, that are saying, no it’s bad for the microbiome. Well, what it’s doing is you’re breaking down the old and you’re bringing back the new.” [20:40]   “When you take water out of the equation, you force your body to go find other areas it stores water and burn that.” [36:40]     To learn more about me and to stay connected, visit the links below: Website: The Girlfriend Doctor Instagram: The Girlfriend Doctor
On this week’s episode of The Girlfriend Doctor, I spoke with Jenn Pike, the head mentor at The Hormone Project. Jenn is a medical exercise specialist and a functional diagnostic nutritionist. On her YouTube channel, Simplicity TV, she is helping women break free from negative patterns and discover their courage to live a life of authenticity.  When life demands so much of your time and attention it is easy to lose yourself, one sacrifice at a time. When burnout consumes you, there comes a moment when you must decide to prioritize your own joy and desire. Bravery can be as simple as making time for yourself everyday.  Living your authentic self is more than just a mindset, it is committing to the lifestyle that energetically aligns with your desires. This can mean giving up things you once loved or adding in new experiences that fulfill you. No matter what you’re called to do, using your body as the guide will lead you to act on what fulfills, nourishes and inspires you. It can be difficult to let go of the woman you once were but how much more exciting is it to become the woman of your dreams!   KEY TAKEAWAYS: [4:40] Unapologetically stepping into your authentic self [6:45] How to see your “regrets” for what they really are…learning experiences  [8:12] Health issues often manifest when you aren’t in alignment with yourself [9:40] Lifting the energetic weight to live the life you desire [10:40] Breaking free of patterns and dealing with burnout  [11:30] Making room for joy and relaxation everyday [12:40] Addressing the root causes instead of focusing on the symptoms [13:30] Grieving the woman you had to be  [16:50] Rebirth can be simply getting better at what you already do [18:30] Making time for your Soul Appointment [23:40] Allowing yourself to evolve and become courageous [25:30] Menopause is when you level up into the wisest version of yourself [32:00] What you believe becomes your truth   HOW TO CONNECT WITH OUR GUEST   MEMORABLE QUOTES “The only person who has to actually know that this is where you are at in your life, in the beginning, is you.” [5:40] “We go through kind of different phases of emotions, so I find for a lot of women and I went through this at times too when there’s actually a bit of a grieving process that has to happen, where you grieve the women that you had to be or that you once were and you allow her to be released and dissolve so you can actually step forward into this new energy.” [13:37] “There is this shift that happens when you are no longer prepared to sacrifice your level of comfort for “the thing”.” [19:40]     To learn more about me and to stay connected, visit the links below: Website: The Girlfriend Doctor Instagram: The Girlfriend Doctor
