In this Nutritional Therapy and Wellness Podcast episode, host Jamie Belz interviews Rachel Ballard, an RN who wasn’t willing to accept the prognosis of a slow, painful, premature death. Rachel is a Registered Nurse, farmer, and Food As Medicine teacher who is currently completing her Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP) certification. After battling back from a rare, paralyzing autoimmune disease, she’s helping individuals use food as a tool so they can fight back against chronic conditions and defy the odds. A lover of British television dramas, raising medicinal plants, and scratch cooking, Rachel lives on her Kentucky cattle farm with her husband of twenty-three years and two teenage children. In talking with Jamie, Rachel walks us through her declining health, eventual diagnosis of CIPD (Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy), and her long road to recovery. 04:50 – Symptoms and red flags leading up to diagnosis: Hashimoto’s, muscles in eye, limp leg, loss of strength, paralysis, felt like she was “on fire” 07:10 – CIPD Diagnosis with Central Nervous Symptom Overlap causing issues with vision, hearing, digestion, bowel and bladder control, and promoting cardiac arrhythmia 9:00 - IVIG (Intravenous Immunoglobulin) Treatment, Plasmapheresis, Stem Cell Transplant, slow decline 10:10 – Five years to live 11:02 – Subcutaneous IVIG Therapy Failed 13:02 – Hitting the point of desperation, looking at natural medicine for the first time, found the wrong natural medicine professionals for her preference and bio-individuality at the time 19:34 – Buying-in on the alternative approach 21:30 – Corruption in science, “follow the money” 22:30 – Working with an NTP, starting with digestion, making slow progress 27:53 – New hope, new career 30:31 – Bioindividuality 31:57 – TALKING ABOUT FOOD! Simple swaps, things to buy 40:17 - Mindset 42:04 – Car analogy 43:15 – Rachel’s list of reversed symptoms/conditions 44:21 – Last question As you’ll hear, taking the first steps into a more natural approach to wellness can be challenging, frustrating, expensive, and a little “weird.” Rachel shares how she didn’t find any luck or answers with the alternative medicine practitioners she initially saw.* Her story is fun, relatable, and inspirational for those suffering from illness, as well as those looking to peek over the fence from the world of conventional medicine. You can find Rachel’s food blog at www.feastandfarm.com.

Ep. 011 - Digestive Hell

Ep. 011 - Digestive Hell

2024-04-1201:04:20

Optimal digestion is crucial for overall health and well-being. It ensures that the body efficiently breaks down food into nutrients, which are then absorbed and utilized for energy, growth, and cellular repair. Proper digestion supports a strong immune system, maintains a healthy gut microbiome, and helps prevent gastrointestinal disorders. Additionally, it plays a significant role in mental health, as the gut is often referred to as the "second brain" due to its impact on mood and cognitive function. Therefore, maintaining optimal digestion is vital for sustaining physical and mental health, enhancing quality of life, and preventing chronic diseases. In this episode of The Nutritional Therapy and Wellness Podcast, host Jamie Belz, FNTP, MHC, continues along the journey of digestion, explaining that if someone is not properly digesting their food, they will not be able to absorb and assimilate the nutrients from the foods they are eating, regardless of how healthful those foods are. Jamie brings back another historical audio clip from a lecture initially given by the founder of The Nutritional Therapy Association, Gray Graham. In Episode 10, Gray discussed the optimal function of digestion. This time, he walks you through “Digestive Hell” – the myriad of diseases, conditions, and other unpleasantries that arise from a suboptimal digestive system. The health of the organism is dependent upon the health of the organ systems, which are dependent upon the health of the organs, which is dependent upon the health of the tissues, which is dependent upon the health of the cells, which is dependent upon digestion. Thus, all wellness begins with digestion. Therefore, does all disease stem from digestive dysfunction? Not exactly, but you can eat the healthiest diet possible for your bio-individual needs, and if you’re not breaking it down to the necessary molecules your body can utilize, what’s the point? Every single cell in all tissues, organs, and systems of an organism relies on the ability to properly absorb nutrients from food. Factors such as stress, poor eating habits, gallbladder removal, and reduced levels of stomach acid (HCl) can hinder digestion. Given the critical role of nutrition in maintaining healthy cells, any disruption in digestion can be harmful in various ways. When the digestive system is compromised, it can lead to a domino effect, impacting the functioning of other bodily systems, 02:35 – Recap of optimal digestion 04:07 – Start of digestive dysfunction 05:23 – “Where’s ‘Digestive Hell’?” 06:56 – Distraction, stress, sympathetic state 13:22 – Pancreatic amylase 13:30 – Dysbiosis, yeast, pathogens (Also at 19:50) 13:55 – It’s all about acid/pH levels 15:17 – Macronutrient degradation 15:47 – Inputs for the production of HCl  16:20 – Things that cause hypochlorhydria (stress, too much protein, zinc, other nutrient deficiencies, allergies…) 17:13 – Dr. Jonathan Wright, the use of the Heidelberg Test for diagnosis of hypochlorhydria, pH for proper hormone function and enzymatic action 21:37 – Pasteur vs. Bechamp / Microorganisms vs. Terraine (Which is to blame?) 23:34 – Hpylori 26:53 – Heartburn, acid reflux, GERD, ulcers 37:50 – Homework/experiment 39:40 – Chyme into the duodenum, secretin, pancreas, bicarbonate, incomplete digestion, whole food particles in the small intestine 42:11 – Gallbladder, bile, fats, cholecystokinin, liver, fat-free or low-fat diet as the cause of gallstones and gallbladder dysfunction, cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal) 52:06 – Burping up fish oil and delayed release fish oil 55:04 – Undigested proteins, microvilli, leaky gut/gut permeability, immune dysfunction 56:03 – Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, healing her autistic child, GAPS Diet 58:04 – Large intestine/colon, ileocecal valve, dysbiosis, inflammation diverticulitis, irritable bowel, Crohn's disease, celiac disease/gluten reactivity, hormones/endocrine system, enzymes, heart health, allergies, butyric acid and foul-smelling feces   Please SUBSCRIBE and Click Here to record a message for Jamie, ask a question, suggest an interviewee, or record an intro for the show!
In this episode of The Nutritional Therapy and Wellness Podcast, host Jamie Belz, FNTP, MHC, brings back historical audio clips from a lecture originally given by the founder of The Nutritional Therapy Association, Gray Graham. Gray discusses the optimal function of digestion in a way you’ve never heard it explained. Listen to this, then hit the “subscribe” button to catch the next episode where Gray explains digestive dysfunction. Many embark upon their wellness journey by cleaning up their diet. While this is a necessary step, the healthiest diet according to everyone’s bioindividual needs doesn’t do much good for them if they’re not properly breaking down the food into molecules that can be absorbed and utilized within the body. The health of the organism is dependent upon the health of the organ systems, which are dependent upon the health of the organs, which is dependent upon the health of the tissues, which is dependent upon the health of the cells, which is dependent upon digestion. Thus, all wellness begins with digestion. 06:41 – Overview of digestion 08:59 – Digestive inputs/volume 15:42 – Six digestive functions 17:09 – Digestion is a north-to-south process – where does it begin?  20:48 – Digestion is fundamental to Nutritional Therapy  21:45 – How’s it all supposed to work? – Deep dive into optimal function   ________________________ Visit www.nutritionaltherapy.com/podcast or click here to record an intro or ask a question you'd like answered on the show!

In Part Two of this two-part episode, Jamie and Amy Lippert, FNTP, continue their discussion, picking up where they left off on Amy's inspirational health story. In Episode seven, Amy shared the symptoms she had experienced for years - symptoms her doctor said were "normal for a woman her age." He prescribed an anti-depressant for her. Amy tried to follow the direction of her physician, but she didn't feel well on the prescriptions, and she knew she wasn't depressed. After conducting her own research, she talked to her doctor about her suspicion that she had a Thyroid condition known as Hashimoto's      she pushed back against her doctor who told her she Hashimoto's thyroiditis, also known as chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis and Hashimoto's
In Part One of this two-part episode, Jamie talks with Nutritional Therapy Practitioner Amy Lippert as Amy shares her personal health story. She tells of suffering extensive symptoms and receiving a false diagnosis from her doctor and, after several years, finding another doctor who helped point her toward the path to healing... but it still wasn't an easy road. 
In this episode of the Nutritional Therapy and Wellness Podcast, your host, Jamie Belz, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (FNTP) and Master Health Coach, walks you through the incredible story of Dr. Francis M. Pottenger Jr., a physician and research scientist of the early 1900s.  Dr. Pottenger worked in a sanitarium, a medical facility found commonly in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, which approached the treatment of disease with exposure to fresh air and sunlight, restorative environments, rest and relaxation – often in outdoor settings, nutrient-dense foods, light physical activity, close monitoring by medical staff, structured routines, and social interaction as a way of strengthening the patient’s immune system and improving their overall health so their bodies could fight off pathogens and heal. While studying the correlation between tuberculosis and the adrenal glands, he noticed vast differences in the health of his feline test subjects depending upon the diets they were fed - raw milk and raw meat versus cooked/pasteurized milk and cooked meat. Over ten years and multiple generations of more than 900 cats, Dr. Pottenger conducted a research project that would eventually become known as "The Pottenger's Cats Study." This study ultimately laid the revolutionary groundwork for what we now call "epigenetics"—the study of how environmental factors, such as diet, stress, and exposure to toxins, can switch our genes on or off without changing the underlying DNA sequence. The profound findings of Dr. Pottenger's study were not so much that what the cats ate impacted their health as that it impacted the health of three subsequent generations of kittens through transgenerational nutritional deficiencies. So, what does this mean to the human race? Are WE a case of Pottenger's Humans? Is there hope for regeneration?  This impactful and truly astonishing story is not told in school, but it should be. You'll want to hear it yourself and then tell everyone you know.  If you'd like to hear more invaluable information that will help guide your unique, bio-individual health quest, hit "subscribe" and be sure to visit www.nutritionaltherapy.com/podcast to leave feedback, record a voice clip for the show, and check out more from the Nutritional Therapy and Wellness Podcast.
What is a Professional Health and Wellness Coach, and Why Should I Become One or Work With One?   In this episode, your host, Jamie Belz, interviews Shanna Nemrow, FNTP, NBC-HWC, and developer and lead instructor for the PHWC course about the Nutritional Therapy Association's hottest new credential.   Shanna teaches why the health coach service industry is one of the fastest growing career fields globally and how to earn your PHWC credential through the NTA, qualifying you to become NBHWC board certified. You'll learn why the most industry versatile health coaches are NBHWC certified.   Shanna shares her story in finding healing after years of struggling with her health, to the point of saying, "goodbye," to her family in her dire condition. Fortunately, she was able to recover and became an Instagram "beacon on the hill" in her own quest to find others who shared similar struggles.   Through her journey/battle of over a decade, Shanna suffered from complications during pregnancy and postpartum sepsis which took a major toll on her organs. As someone who had once enjoyed CrossFit workouts and ran Tough Mudder races, she was reduced to needing to rest while climbing the stairs. She struggled with fatigue, joint pain, and brain fog, and her hair was falling out. Over the years, Shanna felt like something had to be wrong, but at each annual appointment, her doctor told her she was "fine." At 36 years old, Shanna saw an endocrinologist who diagnosed her with Hashimoto's Disease, an autoimmune disease impacting her thyroid. She heard words like "incurable" and phrases like "there's nothing you can do," but Shanna refused to accept that she would continue to struggle "to barely function" for the rest of her life. She persevered with the heart of a warrior and found great improvement by changing her mindset, diet, and lifestyle.   Shanna became a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and, later, a health coach. She is now an inspiration to all who seek answers and no longer wish to feel alone or hopeless in their battles against disease. _________________________________________   Please hit "subscribe" and remember to record your voice message at www.nutritionaltherapy.com/podcast.
Bioindividuality is the recognition that each of us is unique, with our distinct genetic composition, biological needs, preferences, and responses to various aspects such as lifestyle choices, diet, exercise, sleep, stress management – interpersonal relationships - mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being, geographical location, our gut microbiome, our socio-economic status - - - it spans virtually every area of our unique lives as we consider all of the unique inputs and our unique responses to each. It's a lot to consider, but it’s liberating. Once embraced, bio-individuality is the understanding, acceptance, and embodiment of the truth that there is no “one-size-fits-all” cookie–cutter approach to health and well-being.   Your Personal Health Inventory / Health Audit (Listen to the audio first) Areas of Consideration Prompts Health Physical Mental/Emotional Spiritual Relationships Spouse/Significant Other/Life Partner Children Parents Siblings Extended Family Friends Neighbors Coworkers/Colleagues/Professional Associates Children's Networks (Teachers, Coaches, Friends' Parents) Environment Home Clean-Tidy Clean-Toxic (Mold, Cleaners, Off-Gassing, Wildfires, etc.) Enjoyable Comfortable Safe Lonely Overwhelming Affordable Hard Work Work Neighborhood Community Digital Space Finances Stability Relationship with money Debt Income Assets Retirement Insurance Charitable giving/Generosity Ability to Provide Career As Employee Job - Satisfaction, Enjoyment, Feel Appreciated, Feel Challenged, Income, Stress, Hours, Coworkers, Supervisor, Purpose, Challenge, Longevity, etc. Confidence, Satisfaction, Quality of Life Impact, Financials, Progress, etc. Education Exercise Diet Sleep Stress Sex Time Management Confidence Physically, Intellectually, Life Stage/Progress/Accomplishments, Productively, Relationally, etc.   Points of Consideration/Questions (for everything!)
