Transcript of Episode 46: Top 5 Health Breakthroughs and Healing Strategies
With Dr. Daniel Pompa and Warren Phillips
Warren: We're live! Welcome to Cellular Healing TV, episode 46. Happy New Year. We had amazing, recap, an amazing year, and that's what we want to do. Cellular Healing TV was a full year of shows this year, transforming lives across the world. Dr. Pompa has landed on some major breakthrough strategies. I broke through by not playing the show live and repeat, so that everyone got to hear it. Congratulations to me this year for not doing it for the first time. I found a way. I so appreciate you guys. Some of these strategies have been life transforming, not only to Dr. Pompa personally, because he lives whatever he says. So do I, so does our team, so does of our group of doctors around the country and now around the world, and their clients as well. We have a testing ground to find out which strategies actually cause a massive impact in your life, and the things that are concerned most to you, like your energy, your skin, your hair, how you look, how you feel, degenerative conditions that are plaguing America and the world. We found five huge ones. God really laid this on Dr. Pompa's heart to remind us of some of the major breakthrough strategies that were new discoveries to us. Some things that were old, some things that were new, but all coming together for an amazing, powerful 2014 health, weight loss, and energy strategies. Dr. Pompa, let's get at it. I'll support you as much as I can. I'm going to be the lone host today. Dr. David Asarnow is in surgery with his daughter. Not a major one.
Dr. Pompa: Dental surgery. It was easy to pick these five, Warren, because number one, if we just look at the amount of hits that we get on a topic, whether it's a video or one of these shows—I've written articles about most of these things. You get a certain amount of attention. Boy, these five were the attention-getters. As a matter of fact, I probably answer more emails and questions about these five topics than any, so we know it hit home. This was huge this year in the research. These were huge this year in changing people's lives. We've had stacks of testimonies. Let's get right at it. Keto-adaptation. My gosh, wrote two articles (here and here).
Warren: Number one.
Dr. Pompa: Yep, number one. Keto-adaptation, for those of you who read the articles, great, you know what I'm talking about. For those of you who haven't, go read them! We'll say this. It probably, Warren, got the most attention for weight-loss resistance, right? People are able to break through in areas hormonally and with weight loss that they weren't able to break through. I have to say this. Another area that's been near and dear to my heart, and you're going to hear some amazing testimony, either next week or the week after, is this area. This is a big thing. Right now, someone just came out, and—Dr. Seyfried, he is a Boston College leading researcher, and he said, “Look, it's not a genetic disorder. I know that's what's out there in the medical community.” This guy is a big researcher, right? He's a researcher. He said that it is a metabolic disorder, and he said a keto diet beats chemo every time in every study they look at. Why aren't we hearing more about these studies? When this guy and others—I just said that because this was an article that just came out towards the end of the year, but throughout the year, more and more articles were showing that keto-adaptation beats chemo. Look, he was asked the question, “Why haven't we heard more? Why is it that the research isn't going crazy over this?” Simple answer, he said. There's no money in it for drug companies. This guy took a major step forward. He's not a conservative doctor in the sense of alternative therapies. He is a mainstream doctor, typically would be using chemo. Why does keto-adaptation work for it? We have a reason why it works for weight loss so well. Look, real simple Warren, we always talk about how the cells can only use two things for energy, sugar or fat. Keto-adaptation, simply put, you're forcing the cell to change its energy source to mostly being a fat burner, okay? Why is that significant? For this it's significant because the mutated cells rely on what? Strictly glucose. They have no ability to utilize fat. Therefore, you're allowing your immune system to get a hold because you're starving out the mutated cells. So simple. If he's right, and if a lot of these doctors are right, this is a metabolic disorder, meaning that it's a cellular energy issue, in part, then this is a major toll that has gone ignored in the medical community. The testimonies. We're talking about a gentleman, a client of mine, Stage IV pancreatic. Stage IV, Warren. That's a death sentence.
Warren: Always. Yep, always. You have six months to live. You have two months to live. If you do chemo, you may live a little bit longer, but usually—and most, not all, if you do chemo, you would've died in the same amount of time with or without it, in a lot of the research that I've read. Again, I'm not an expert, but wow. It's a death sentence. They say, get your papers in order, your last will and testament, get your finances in order, your arrangements. You're dead. That's what they tell you. Again, that's a fear tactic, a lot of the times, to get you to do chemo. Just making a quick point, we've had personal friends, and I think we can share this now publicly—Jordan Rubin, who was diagnosed. He shared it publicly. No one knew that, because man, here's the healthiest guy on the planet, who overcome—was it colitis or Crohn's? Then later, wasn't too long ago, one of the most well known health experts in the world was now diagnosed with terminal. I can't remember what type it was, Dr. Pompa, but he had so much pressure from some of the greatest experts in the world, because he is connected to whoever he wants in the wealth and wellness industry, and some of the best leaders in the medical industry as well—but the medical side. Most of them said, “Hey, with your sickness, you should do chemo.” He was getting a lot of pressure, and they were making fun of him saying, “Yeah, the health guy that now has sickness. How do you like it now? Did everything right and you still have it. Shame on you for doing all this health and wellness stuff and you're still going to die.” That was what they were saying. He beat it. It's amazing the power in some of these natural health and healing strategies for these terminal cases.
Dr. Pompa: We didn't just do—again, it wasn't just the diet. He did a lot of the cellular healing things obviously, this client Terry that I was just referring to. Look, the bottom line is… Terry is not only sickness free without doing chemo. Terry's life is completely changed. You will hear that story. When you look at keto-adaptation, this is why it works so well. Obviously, you're switching the field that that the cell is using for burning fat. Why is that significant? Why does it work for so many hormone conditions as well? See, fat burns cleaner than does glucose, meaning that—like putting wood in your fire and you see a lot of smoke. When you turn on the natural gas on your stove, you don't see smoke. It burns very clean. Fat burns like natural gas, and glucose burns like wood. Lot of waste, lot of smoke. Why is that important? See, the cell has to deal with that oxidative stress. The cell has to deal with that waste. When we burn a cleaner source, now the cell can utilize some of those things that are put in place to deal with the smoke of burning glucose, so to speak, the waste of burning glucose, and it can put it towards inflammation, which is the number one cause of all diseases that we know of, right? Therefore, we get a down regulation of inflammation. We're going to talk about this, because I know one of the big things is the number one question is, is some of the people would go into keto-adaptation. They either wouldn't adapt after months and months. The average person keto adapts, meaning they become an efficient fat burner after about two or three weeks to a month. Some people wouldn't. We've learned a lot. We know that certain conditions like a thyroid condition or other toxic conditions can keep somebody from entering into that fat burning. I learned some tricks, and we're going to talk about it in number three. I learned a lot of tricks through the last year or so, here. Keto-adaptation, you become an efficient fat burner.
Warren: That's the big breakthrough number one of 2014, is implementing that, that lives that were transformed. We wrote two articles on this, Dr. Pompa, highly viewed, highly sought after, shared all over the world, huge articles. Huge find. Again, we're just going over and we're spending ten minutes on each. Go to our website, go to DrPompa.com, for those that are just listening and not able to—
Dr. Pompa: Yeah, exactly. I don't want to go through how to do it, because the articles are written. Just go there and you can see how to.
Warren: In one of the search boxes on the site, type in, “keto,” K-E-T-O, and then the two articles will be the first two that pop up for you guys. Keto-adaptation. If you're looking for a health strategy breakthrough and a new habit forming, or new concept, to get your life back, if you're watching this and you have a terminal condition, diabetes—this is great research on this. You'll read about them in the articles. Go there and apply something that's truly going to transform your life in 2015 from a strategy that transformed many lives for us in 2014. Keto-adaptation: number one health breakthrough strategy.
Dr. Pompa: Let me give them the second most asked question about it. How does it differ from Atkins? I explain that in the article, but just know this. It is obviously high fat, but it is not high protein. It is not high protein. Matter of fact, I talk about why high protein can actually cause other issues and other problems. I don't believe in a high protein diet. Also, Dr. Atkins never distinguished between really good fats and we do. We talk about that in the article. Let's go, man. Number two!
Warren: Number two. Want me to put it up here?
Dr. Pompa: Yeah, go ahead. This is one of the things that really affected my life. I've been doing this longer than a year, but ironically enough, Warren, I saw more benefits from intermittent fasting—
Warren: Intermittent fasting, yep.
Dr. Pompa: I think even when I first started it. I don't know why that is. Obviously, some things amazing happened hormonally with intermittent fasting. I do intermittent fasting daily, myself. Let me be very clear. There's articles written on this, and Warren can guide you there. There's block type of intermittent fasting, where we intermittent fast for four days, maybe ten days. We have many fasts that we do with whey water. Also, another topic today, using stock and beef stock. There's multiple ways to intermittent fast. We love doing those beef stock fasts and those whey water fasts, doing them for four days extended period of times. People do those multiple times during the year with amazing, amazing healing success. Again, read the article. However, what has affected my life is daily intermittent fasting. Warren, you too.
Dr. Pompa: Again, you can read the articles, but in a nutshell, it's this. I just heard Dr. Oz—is that the guy? Yeah, Dr. Oz, on TV yesterday, telling people to eat their biggest meal of the day in their morning and their lunch, and then the smallest at dinner. You realize we're the only country in the world that buys into that philosophy? Every other country—hence the word continental breakfast, where either they don't eat breakfast or it's so small that it really doesn't matter. For years, to the Romans and Greeks and all these cultures, dinner was their biggest meal. We're opposite. Intermittent fasting is where we skip breakfast completely. We stay in a fasting mode through the night and we don't eat. We eat a very small meal around, we'll say, lunchtime. I try to push it out to 2:00 or 3:00. Then we eat a larger dinner. What is the concept here? Simply put, every study shows that it raises growth hormone massively. I think that's why I saw greater benefit literally the longer I have been in it, where I saw these massive anti-aging effects. Warren, you know that I got leaner as a 49, 50 year old than I did even when I was in my 20's. It would not have been possible without intermittent fasting.
Warren: Yeah, you anti-aged incredible this year because of that. David did as well, David, huge, because of intermittent fasting. Myself, I put on a ton of muscle this year because of intermittent fasting and, of course, doing the burst type or high intensity training along with it. It's been a major health breakthrough for me, personally. Transformed my life, saved me time, energy level sustainable. It threw me into keto-adaptation several times throughout the year, just doing intermittent fasting alone without even doing the keto diet. I'm jumping into a keto diet, so I'm applying a 2014 strategy early in 2015. I'm going to do a really high fat and get into ketosis again for the New Year. The reason I'm doing that is because—think about it, guys. You've got to have major emotional ties to why you're even doing these things. Think about that. If it's like, “Oh, I just want to get healthy,” well, there's major reasons why I want to do it. The major reason is so I can travel more and have—I still work so hard. I have a very high-demand life, but I'm not going to make excuses about how I'm just tired or stressed out. I'm trying to do a lot of strategies on my health, stress management, things like that, so that I can have more time for my family, that I have more energy to even work out more, so that my brain can move at a higher capacity, so that I can adapt to stress when stress comes my way, which it will in all of our lives, I don't overreact to that stress. These diet programs add that to your life. You say you want to put on muscle. You need to eat these diets. It's not just working out, because it's hormones that dictate whether you put on muscle or lose muscle. Sometimes you can be working out, going on the treadmill, and you're actually going against the very goal you want. These adaptations—number one, keto-adaptation. Intermittent fasting. They actually work together. Correct, Dr. Pompa, at times? We'll get there later in the show, so I'll shut up for now and let you go.
Dr. Pompa: Yeah, they actually work very much together. We do all these things, and we'll talk about what you just said, as far as going in and out, on ketosis and why that can be beneficial. Yeah, the intermittent fasting, some people just eat one meal a day. Some very big bodybuilders do this. People think, I'm going to lose muscle, right? That was the old way of thinking. It's simply not true. It is all about hormones. The optimization of growth hormone is so good that you see the difference in your skin, you do see the difference in your hair, you do see the difference in how your body burns fat. When you become an efficient fat burner, you burn fat during this fast, which is amazing. Again, when you don't have energy, or when you're not feeding your body, then guess what your body has to feed on? Its fat stores. See Warren, the whole thing is, does six meals a day work? It does, for people who don't burn fat, right? Then they're not going to burn their muscle and it pushes their metabolism a little bit, so it works on the short term. We know that. However, in the long run, you're never going to dig into those deep fat stores, because you don't give your body a chance to burn fat. Intermittent fasting does that, because you raise growth hormone and testosterone, and then you become this efficient fat burner. You're burning it around the clock for 16 to 18 hours. You're utilizing your fat that you're stored, so therefore, you become leaner and leaner. Again, the longer you do it, the more efficient fat burner you become. It doesn't happen overnight. I can tell you that. Some people have to keep this going for a while to see the benefits. I'll tell you, I did see certain benefits right away. However, I can tell you the longer I did it, the more benefits that I saw. Intermittent fasting daily, it works. It really does work.
Warren: That's why I got so passionate about it, Dr. Pompa. It transformed my life last year. Without it, I literally wouldn't have achieved the business success, the life success, the personal success I had. I'm saying this from a meaningful place in my heart. Intermittent fasting transformed my life, and I know it transformed your life. You're the front-runner. You do all this stuff first. Then I look at you, just like anyone else that I observe, and it takes a commitment. I just see how lean you get. I saw the energy you had. I see you sleeping four hours, three or four nights in a row because of travel and work and the demands of five children and the stress that brings. You have more energy, more focus, than a man nine years younger than you. I just turned 40, just December 27th, just five days ago. I saw the benefits to you, so I immediately jumped on that wagon and I haven't got off it since. It's been an amazing year. Intermittent fasting has been that for me. What a blessing. You can go to our website, again, DrPompa.com, type in just “fast,” and you'll see—the first article that comes up will be intermittent fasting, which is going to come up here in a minute, but it'll also say intermittent fasting. That's an incredible article. One of the most shared and liked articles in the year 2014. Rightfully so. Major life transformation.
Dr. Pompa: Yeah, and I think we've done some past shows on these topics, right? Go back to—we have a podcast. If you want to just listen to the past shows while you're exercising, you can do that. By the way, I want to bring up—you brought up about exercise. First of all, intermittent fasting alone, in males, is shown to raise growth hormone, like a 2,000% increase. Talk about anti-aging. It also hits the SERP 1 gene, which causes you to live longer, and also, there's an amazing effect on telomere length, which is the only biological clock that we know of. The shorter your telomeres get, the closer to death. I've been doing a lot of research that I'm going to be sharing with you soon, in upcoming shows, about telomeres. Here's the thing. When you do this, you can even get more bang for your buck. Exercise in the morning, on an empty stomach, while you're intermittent fasting, and you get this major spike in growth hormone. Why is that important? It's a way to get lean. It's a way to anti-age. I'm telling you, it works. The old adage of exercise and then eat a half hour later, I promoted that for so many years. However, when you exercise and do high intensity burst training that we recommend, now you're burning up all your glucose, you're forcing your body to become a fat burner, and you're forcing your body in this hormonal state. Then after the exercise, you don't have to eat. Your body will just feed from the fat and your growth hormone goes up, so you spare your muscle. It's not what we thought, that you would lose muscle unless you fed protein 30 minutes after you exercise. It's old thinking. I tell you, I was wrong years ago when I would tell people that. It is old thinking. The fact is, is you maintain your muscle and burn your fat, so if you want more bang for your buck, exercise, high-intensity training, while your intermittent fasting, and eat a few hours later. You may feel dizzy and woozy in the beginning because you're not an efficient fat burner yet, but that will change. We'd better go to number three to stay on our pace, Warren.
Warren: Okay, but one tip with keto-adaptation and intermittent fasting. A big part of keto-adaptation, obviously, and intermittent fasting—and I know my brother asked me this question last night, and he's watching right now. What are the five top fats that you can eat? I know they're in the articles, but what are the five top fats that you can eat that can support both keto-adaptation and intermittent fasting?
Dr. Pompa: First of all, again, we talked about in some of the past shows—I'm going to blow some people out of the water. Saturated fat is probably the most important out of all of them, and cholesterol, right? Shocker! Aren't those the ones that are bad fats? When I say bad fats, people immediately think of saturated fat and cholesterol. Listen to our past shows on those topics. Read my articles, and you'll see why they're the most important fats. Why? The hormone receptors that are on the cell are stabilized by saturated fat and cholesterols. Multiple studies show that increases in those fats actually improve diabetes threefold, weight-loss resistance, thyroid conditions, and the list goes on and on. Those fats, for sure. I have what I call, and you'll read about, my 2-2-2 rule. Coconut oil, medium chain triglycerides (MCT), these are really important. Ingest those. Two tablespoons a day. Also, the other two is two tablespoons of grass-fed butter—really important. It has cholesterols and saturated fats. Obviously, good, organic, grass-fed cheese would fit into that category. Those are key fats. Medium chain triglycerides, you can buy them. We sell them on our website, straight in glass bottles. Warren: MCT Oil, yeah.
Dr. Pompa: MCT oil, right. These things help you become fat burners. Those are some really important fats that we need. Saturated fats—olive oil, avocados—I could go down a list of 400, but those are the ones that most people love.
Warren: Those are awesome, and eggs of course.
Dr. Pompa: Eggs have saturated fats and cholesterols and all of those perfect protein.
Warren: Yeah, so for all of us who want the how-to's, go to the website. There's a few of the fats and foods that really make ketogentic adaptation and great foods for intermittent fasting. That high fat diet concept is key. Let's go on to number three. Posted, there it is, in a different color. The Stress and Rest Hypothesis. This is something that I'm just really starting to understand and apply in my life. Dr. Pompa's been, again, forefront all over this hypothesis and how important it is and how it even works in with keto-adaptation, intermittent fasting, exercise, and life. Stress Rest Hypothesis, number three. I got ahead of myself there, but number three, 2014 strategies that have been massively life changing.
Dr. Pompa: Yeah. One of the things—and I just did a video recently, when I was in Jackson Hole. Did some research while I was there, really researching the diet of this area in the West. It was a diet that was based on stress and rest, meaning that they would have these times when they didn't have as much food, and then they would have times where they had plenty, and then they'd have times where they survived just on buffalo and elk and deer, where they just consumed proteins and fats. Then spring would come, and then all of a sudden, they'd be eating more vegetables in their diet. What I learned is most cultures were this way. Our bodies are set up to deal with stress and rest. Matter of fact, think about it, Warren, from a lifting or a bodybuilding or an exercise premise. We stress, and then the most important thing every trainer will tell you, is that it's rest is where you make all your gains. Stress and rest. Why does it work? Our bodies are always fighting homeostasis. It gets used to things—energy pathways do certain things. Here's the thing. The body always wants to store fat, Warren. Why does it do that? It wants to survive, right, so it wants to store, it wants to hold onto, energy, aka fat stores. If we switch things around and break things, what happens is our bodies never have that chance to become so efficient that it's storing fat again. The first place I learned this, obviously, is exercise. The second place was diet. When we realized that people would be in ketosis—and we said all three of these first three tie together, and I'll explain that more in a minute. When people go into ketosis, two things, we realized, started happening. They were becoming efficient fat burners. Then they would start burning fat or they would start doing this looser water-type fat. In my research, I realized that there's two things that take place. Number one, the body will start to take water and plug fat cells. Why does it do that? It wants to survive. It wants to store, hold on to a little bit of fat, just in case the stress time comes from lack of food, right? It starts to want to hold on, becomes too efficient at burning fat. It does something else. It shuts down, from the cell—from the DNA, it creates a little bit of insulin resistance. Keto-adaptation has taken some hits saying, “It causes insulin resistance.” No it doesn't. Not the insulin resistance that we know of, like diabetes. It causes it because it shuts down or blunts the insulin receptor just slightly so you start to burn fats—or I should say it this way. You store a little more fat. It wants to survive. Homeostasis. It's trying to adapt. It's trying to survive, and it wants to become a more efficient fat burner. We realize that once a week, if you hit it hard with a lot of carbs, your body goes, “Okay, I'm not starving anymore,” and you break that process. You're creating a small Stress and Rest Hypothesis. You're creating—kind of what they did, modern-day Indians and the cowboys back in the day. We're just doing the ones with we have plenty, and the body says, “I'm okay.” Then we don't. When it's only burning fat, it may think that we don't have a lot of energy, because there's not a lot of sugar or carbohydrates. It's stress and rest. Then, Warren, this is what I really learned. I would have these people who weren't able to break into ketosis and become these efficient fat burners. Four months, five months, “I'm still not burning fat.” Okay, go back to a regular Cellular Healing Diet. Still low carb, but not putting you in ketosis. The articles explain the difference. Here's what happened. They would go on the higher carb diets—not really high carb. It's low carb diet still. However, they would go, “Oh my gosh, I feel so much better. I have energy. My brain's working better.” Now they're feeding glucose. Then they would be on that a few months. It would seem like a lot of those benefits would fade away. I just would say, “Go back into ketosis again.” Now they would start doing ketosis, and all of a sudden, they adapt. They become fat burners. It was the switching from one diet to the next, very similar to the Indians in this country, very similar to the Eskimos, all these tribes who have one form of diet, switch to another form of diet, it breaks this homeostasis. It breaks this body balance. It fools the body. All of a sudden, they would start to lose weight again. Very similar to what I call my 5-1-1 rule. Within ketosis, we would do five days of very low carbs, one day of no food, just fasting, and one day of carb loading. That's what you do on a weekly basis to get this Stress and Rest theory down. Then also, you can do it for months, just like you did, Warren. You were in ketosis, you left ketosis, and now you're going back in. Guess what I did for winter? I broke out of ketosis. All summer, to be efficient on my bike so I didn't have to eat—my bodies an efficient fat burner, I could ride for miles and miles and miles while I'm in ketosis. Works amazing. I just become this fat-burning machine. Now winter's here, I'm fueling up with some more carbs again. Mostly healthy carbs, of course, but I am absolutely seeing a different change in my body. In spring again, I'm going to evolve back into full ketosis. This dietary change is something that nobody talks about but yet our ancestors did it because they had to do it. If we emulate it, we get the amazing hormone benefits, and we get the benefit of watching our body adapt. Amazing, amazing principle, Warren. I've been so excited about it. I've been doing it with these people who cannot lose weight, and I've seen amazing results when we switched the types of diet that we do. One diet, all the time—I think it's bad thinking. Again, I would've said—
Warren: That was us.
Dr. Pompa: No doubt. Listen, I was always—I do better in a ketogenic state. I do better on high fat diets. That's my genetics. However, when I change it up, just like exercise, man, the results have been spectacular.
Warren: Yeah, and it makes so much sense. You're working with nature. Nature's like that. There's times of stress, there's times of rest. The cold for the trees. Everything is in that homeostasis, and that stress is so important. Foods change. Food sources change. Our bodies were built, our DNA is designed, for stress and rest; for times of famine; for times of feasting. This also applies—and I know the Stress and Rest Hypothesis is key, and there's science that proves it, for the human body, for achievement. You can't just sit around and not stress out your life by making change. You don't want to do so much stress that you can't achieve that goal, but you have to put yourself in situations that are stressful so that you grow and once again adapt. Everyone, my dad always told me this, and I'll give kudos to my father, he's like, “Warren, when you get older, you won't care so much about the things you care about now.” Why is that? That's the Stress and Rest Hypothesis. You're like, “I can deal with that stress.” You have one kid, and how do you deal with four? If you gave four kids all at the same time, God said, “Here's four,”—that's why sometimes, if you do in vitro transplant and you have four kids, it's an overly stressful time, so you have to hire people to help you. It's just not normal and natural. I bless the people who do that and get children. However, you were not designed to do large amounts of stress. If you look at how does somebody over in Africa, who they deal with these major wars and strife in life, and they just adapt. It's because for decades, they've been dealing with this, so their family is attuned and trained to those types of stresses, and they can adapt to it. If we would go over there and deal with the stress in some of these others countries, we would fold and fall apart. That's why some people can get into a concentration camp, I've read some of the books on the Holocaust, and some of them made it and some of them didn't. It's the ones that could adapt to that stress that did, and the one that didn't—there's this personal thing that's also dear to my heart this year, is adapting, and not allowing certain stresses in my life so I can adapt better to others, but also to keep introducing purposeful stress so that I can grow as an individual. The more important thing, what you're going to say, is vacationing, spending time with family—so important in the Stress and Rest Hypothesis. You're more of an expert on that than I am. Share with that one, Dr. Pompa.
Dr. Pompa: I instinctively live my life from a really—I can stress it. I exercise. Man, when I exercise, no one has to tell me to go harder. I go to failure. I have always intuitively—I don't know. Maybe it was from reading I did—know that rest is best. I watch a lot of athletes who hit the wall. They don't rest enough, right? In our personal lives, like you said, it's the same thing. We work hard, but then you've got to rest. Our minds function the same as our muscles and same as our body, so why would we think diet's no different? Of course, when we stress our muscles, the key is rest. When we stress our mind, we utilize and then we rest. If you don't rest, you're going to burn out. The stress and rest applies emotionally and physically, and it applies to our diets. Change it up. Stress and rest. When you're doing this days of fasting, that's a stressful thing that your body has to adapt. You're forcing the stress. Then, you give it plenty, and then it's a rest period, right? It's just that switching it up, stress and rest, whether it's you're doing it weekly with the 5-1-1 rule that I talk about in the ketosis articles or whether you're doing it for months and then changing your diet again, it still is stress and rest. Burst training—stress and rest. I love it. We could talk about this for hours.
Warren: Yeah, it's great.
Dr. Pompa: I believe it is how we achieve higher goals. Whether you're an athlete or not, we have to stress it, we have to rest it. When I found that principle that worked with diet and it was really supported by our ancestors, I got really excited. Folks, switch up your diets. If you've been on a diet for too long, whatever it is, change it. Watch the results. Change it back. Genetically, all of us do better on certain diets, no doubt, but I believe we all do best on change. Stress, rest, change it up. You'll see the benefits.
Warren: So simple, but yet so brilliant. Strategy number three from 2014. Let's go to number four. Another—okay I'll stop.
Dr. Pompa: Those three principles—apply them together, and watch what happens in your life. Go into keto-adaptation intermittent fasting while you do it, because keto-adaptation puts you into a fat burner. Now, when you're in that intermittent fasting, you're burning fat. Those two work magically together. Then, add the Stress and Rest Hypothesis. The 5-1-1 one rule I talk about in the articles. All three of those are like this. Please, you'll receive all three of those principles together. It'll change your life. I guarantee it. It's absolutely amazing. Okay, so let's talk about number four, which is probably the most media attention this year, I believe.
Warren: Bone Broth fasting or using bone broth as part of a fast.
Dr. Pompa: Yeah, and again, you can utilize—I said the first three, but again, you can utilize this in intermittent fasting, right? We put people on the bone stock fast for four days. I'll tell you, their skin changes. We do it to heal the gut, right? Invariably, they'll say, Dr. Pompa, you're not going to believe this, but my skin and hair are amazing. Why is that? Bone broth, bone stock, something that's been around for centuries, has type II collagen, which heals the skin, the hair, the nails. It does, it works, but it also heals the gut. Warren, this became so popular this year in 2014.
Warren: Yeah, it's huge.
Dr. Pompa: A top chef, and I mentioned it in the video, opened up a drive thru bone stuck, where they're giving grass fed bone stock cups. People pull up and they get their cup of bone stock, and then they're going to work drinking their bone stock. Of course, he obviously makes some amazing bone stock. It's loaded with type II collagen. We utilize it for a different reason. We utilize bone stock to starve down all gut bacteria and then to reinoculate with good bacteria. We could do a whole show on the bacteria in the gut and how that applies to your hormones, how that applies to your weight loss, how that applies to how your brain works. Every hormone, these bacteria in your gut regulate these hormones. When you don't have enough of them, your immune system drops, your hormones get dysregulated. By starving down all bacteria and then adding in a bunch of good, has been a strategy that has worked for us for very, very challenging clients in different conditions. Bone stock fasting works multiple ways. Warren, we've written many articles on it. You did it on video showing how to do it, how you made it. We have many different recipes.
Warren: That's one of the highest—it's just a random video that I put together with my daughter, and it got massive views on YouTube because of the popularity. We were doing it, and then of course, some of our other health experts out there, Mercola threw out an article on that. Again, this has come and gone in the media, but it's just like any other strategy, guys. We're sharing these with you. Some of them have been around, but they've definitely came back and been reapplied. Like, why did I forget—stop doing that in my life? Those are the sorts of things—and why didn't I know about this? There's so many different things in your life that you just will never discover, and you wish that—I wish someone would've told me about this investment into Apple. I would've made millions of dollars. It's the same thing with these things that you're listening to today. “Why didn't I hear this before?” Not everyone gets the opportunity to hear them. That's why we do Cellular Healing TV and share it with the world. You're learning thing that are gems, in our lives, in the lives of thousands of people, but it's not common information. We're bringing uncommon information to common people through CellularHealing.tv. It's massive changes in your life. We mentioned in bone broth fasting, the microbiome and guts and all that, that was more of a 2013 breakthrough for us, but we really applied it, and Dr. Pompa applied it heavily, through our doctor's network and into his personal health coaching and health participant clients. Bone broth fasting has transformed lives. Scleroderma just stopping it in its tracks and putting an end to a state of—backing it off in a major way. A lot of autoimmune conditions, the bacteria are key to that, and it was a major breakthrough. If you're hearing this, man, read these articles. Educate yourself. They're gems for your life from 2014. They can incredibly change your 2015 and give you your life back or the life of your dreams.
Dr. Pompa: Warren, I'll say this, too. If you don't understand—for those watching, or if you have friends, family members who have some weird condition that they're on medication for and the doctor's not sure what it is or what's going on or you're on medication and you still don't feel well, read the article on autoimmune answers. Put it into the search, “autoimmune.” Why? You will see that most of these conditions that we don't know what's going on are simply your body attacking itself, driving cellular inflammation, aka autoimmune. Read the article. Matter of fact, you know what you'll see in that article? All these things that we just talked about? I talk about them within that article within the conditions. Many thyroid conditions. Many conditions where people just have fatigue, brain fog, and all these types of things. It's autoimmune. It's autoimmune, and I talk about that. Read the article. One of the best articles of the year. I almost snuck it in the top five, just because it did mean so much to so many people, and we had so many breakthroughs. I believe that was a God thing, just even how—the teaching analogy of the three-legged stool with autoimmune.
Warren: Yeah, and we have previous shows on that if you go to our YouTube page. Through our website, just click on YouTube. On our page, look for “autoimmune microbiome.” Autoimmune is auto and then the word immune. I-M-U—whoa.
Dr. Pompa: I-M-M-U-N-E.
Warren: I-M-M-U-N-E. Again, that's why I spelled it for everybody. There's a lot of not good spellers out there.
Dr. Pompa: I just said yesterday, and I don't want to digress here, but so many—I was having a conversation with my son, and I said, “Gosh, we all have challenges in life, right?” Again, stress or rest, they either make us better or they make us weaker, right? I was saying how much my dyslexia as a kid, not being able to read until sixth grade, I see so many of my insecurities now, as an adult, came out of that. So many of my responses that I don't like about myself came out of something as simple as not being able to read and adapting because I didn't fit in and I was embarrassed. We were discussing, because someone that we know, they didn't have a parent. That causes abandonment issues and creates issues later in life. Not immediately, but later in life, typically. I'm thinking, gosh, look at my life. I had a great family. I had a great mom, dad, sisters, amazing, growing up. Yet, I couldn't read, and it jacked me up, man! I'm still healing. We're all wounded together, but we heal together, too. That's awesome. Number five, we'd better get to it. It's a big one.
Warren: Yeah, I had it spelled out, but it took out my face on the show here. Number five is the understanding and the epidemic of genetically modified organism, GMOs. Huge, huge science that came out this year on that subject.
Dr. Pompa: I said this in the video, I want to give the credit this year, if I had to put in the number one scientist I believe deserves an award for her research in the last two years, but I think it got more attention this year. It's Stephanie Seneff. She is the leading scientist, the senior scientist at MIT, and she's had just many, many articles, research papers, come out about GMOs. More specifically, cholesterol sulfate and the importance of cholesterol. Stating her comments are, “Heart disease is actually a cholesterol deficiency.” Oh man, 180° philosophy right there, right? Her papers are that this glyphosate, this chemical that we're spraying on everything that's not organic, every grain that you sow, whether it's oats, wheat, barley. You name it, they're spraying it with this chemical. It's the active ingredient in Roundup. They're doing it just to shrivel it up a little bit. It's called desiccation. Therefore, it's easier to harvest, which sends profits through the roof. It works. The problem is this. When they spray it right before harvest, the levels that we ingest go through the roof. Why is that a problem? She talks about how it depletes us in something called cholesterol sulfate. This is how your brain works, this is how your hormones work, this is how your gut works. She's talking about this glyphosate issue as causing massive brain problems, neurodegenerative diseases, linking it to Parkinson's, Type 2 Diabetes. In all of these conditions that we're seeing go crazy, leaky gut, autoimmune, all these things, she's saying glyphosate—autism. She's saying it's at the forefront. It's the reason why we're seeing—as glyphosate started in our food system—we've seen glyphosate introduced, and we've seen all these conditions skyrocket with the increased use of glyphosate. It is hand in hand parallel, skyrocketing together. She has shown the link between this chemical that most of us are eating every day—if you're eating conventional grains, if you're eating GMO grains, the levels are huge. Again, that's the thing. Showing that this is massive. GMO, yes, it's bad for our DNA. GMO causes problems, but when we add this glyphosate problem in, we get a double whammy. I believe this topic right here is the number one reason why people are not feeling well in the last five years. The amount of glyphosate we're being exposed to, our children, has gone through the roof. Leaky gut, food allergies, these types of allergies, food intolerances. This, according to her research and others, this is why. You have got to get this chemical out of your diet. You have to get GMOs out of your diet. That means no corn that's not 100% organic, no soybeans, no alfalfa. These things are going crazy. We used to think it as just that, but now that we're spraying all of the grain with this chemical, we have to be more conscious than ever to get 100% organic grains if you're going to eat grain. I believe we should avoid as much grain as possible, for multiple reasons. This is a huge topic. Go back and watch some of the shows that we've done on this topic.
Warren: Number five, GMOs. They do the commercials. Why are they doing those commercials? I don't know if you've seen those guys on TV. They're saying it to get you to accept them. It's not because they love you. It's not because they want to transform the world, although some people in that organization, Monsanto, probably have great hearts. The reason they're running that media and that campaign and that PR work is they want you to accept it. Where all other countries—and they ran that show on national TV all over. Spent probably billions of dollars right when all these other countries that banned GMOs in their countries. All the publicity on Facebook hit, wouldn't you know, right after. Just like a typical government move. Just like, if you ever watch “The Hunger Games,” they try to dumb you down, try to get you to drink the Kool-Aid, hypnotize you, essentially, to believe that these things are safe, and they're absolutely not safe. It's poison to your body. It'll cause genetic snips, meaning genetic alteration in the code of your body. It'll be passed on to your children. That idea—major epidemic moving forward. I believe, through the power of the people, which means you and I, Cellular Healing TV followers, all the other health experts out there that are pushing this message forward with us, they—there was a thing there. It scared me. They are making major breakthroughs for all of us. We can change it. We can make sure that they're banned. Monsanto's smart enough to come up with another way to make money not by killing us. I'm happy for their business, great, but they're killing people, and it has to change. It's a major, major breakthrough this year. That's why, if you call, that's why it happened on national media. They were trying to—it was so big, the negative push, that they were trying to overwhelm it with how good they are and how good they are for you and how it's transformed hunger and all this other stuff. Bunch of lies. GMOs—a major, major issue.
Dr. Pompa: Monsanto has one of the most successful companies on the planet. They are the ones that make genetically modified organisms, genetically modified crops. They're the ones that have really cornered the market there. By the way, they're the ones who create the chemical glypohsate. You have to understand, what they're doing is they're genetically altering, putting a gene in, to get a crop to be able to withstand their chemical. If the farmers spray too much glyphosate, it would kill the crop. It would have an effect on the crop. Now we have GMO, or we would call them Roundup Ready crops. What that means is they genetically alter them where you can spray as much as this poison as you want on them and the crop doesn't die. What does that do for us? That means we're getting even more of this chemical called glyphosate. Listen, Stephanie Seneff, her research is showing that glyphosate is ruining our brains, our guts, and causing all of these things that we're talking about. This is why this is a big topic. Listen, you can do your own experiment. You can take your group of pigs—well you've like pigs, but this is the study that was done. They took 168 pigs. They fed them organic grains, organic feed. Then they took another group and they fed them GMO. By the end of the study, it was staggering the difference. As a matter of fact, on autopsies, the intestines of the GMO group were like cellophane, with holes right through it, the very thing that's happening to us as humans. Think about this, Warren. People are going into conventional grocery stores. They're buying rice, they're buying wheat, that's loaded with this chemical glyphosate. It's GMOs, all of it. Corn, all the corn chips they're eating, every product has these things in it, whether it's corn, wheat—all loaded with this chemical. Then they're buying the vegetables that are sprayed with it, as well. We don't stand a chance. It's amazing that we don't see the greater epidemic, but just wait. Just wait until these children today end up in their 20's and 30's. If you think that autoimmune is bad now, it is going to be—it's going to be a pandemic that I fear for this planet. I'm telling you, this GMO thing and this glyphosate thing, I believe it is the most detrimental thing that's happened in the human race, at least in the food channel, in probably the last 100 years. It is that big of a deal. Yet, it's getting no media attention whatsoever. No media attention. Thank god it made our top five. That's why you've got to share this video with everyone. Your family and friends are eating this stuff, and they're just going to take more medications because they don't feel well. They're going to take more stimulants, because they have no energy. Really, this is the thing. Look, if you don't do the top four, at least do this one. Get rid of GMOs in 2015. Eat only organic grains, if you eat grain at all. Eat only organic corn. Please, minimize these exposures. Your health will change.
Warren: This has been an incredible show. I'm thinking about this and I'm just re-inspired. Sometimes I'm even out to eat and I'll eat some rice and not know where it's from, but knowing that could be a heavily sprayed—and this is even at nice restaurants. Pesticides and glypohsate and just relaxing too much. Again, you don't want to stress. Again, the Stress and Rest Hypothesis, you don't want to stress yourself out so much and live in fear. Your bodies have an amazing ability to heal, and it can handle a little bit of stress, maybe a pesticide hit here, a glyphosate hit there, but if you're doing it on a daily basis and you're eating corn chips every day, you're eating pesticide-sprayed rice every day, it is—just like they did with those pigs, it is destroying your guy, your body, your cells, your genetics. Glyphosate causes genetic modifications. Pesticide, same thing. You want to give a rat this sickness? Give him low doses of pesticide. It causes sickness immediately, every time, consistently, in studies. That's how they start. It's good just to go back and remind yourself, man, I have to be careful. We all, if we don't educate ourselves—if we're not educating ourselves, someone else is going to be educating us, and that's going to be the media. That's going to be the marketing. We've got to educate ourselves, or someone else is going to dictate your education. Usually, that's your TV and the commercial industry.
Dr. Pompa: Yep. Hey Warren, I want to end it with this, right here. This is a big thing for me. It's the 180° Solution™. Folks watching, if you want to know what to do, how to do it, simply watch the media, read the magazines, read the newspapers, watch your TV, watch Dr. Oz, do 180° opposite, and somehow, you hit it right every time. Look at these five things. Keto-adaptation, high fat—what's the world say? Low fat. Intermittent fasting—what's the world say? Eat a big breakfast. Eat six meals a day. What are we saying? Eat one or two. Eat no breakfast. Number three, stress and rest. God forbid that you stress yourself out. No, we're saying stress it but rest it. 180°. Bone stock fasting—what's the world say? No, fasting's not good. GMOs—what's the world say? Eat grain. Eat more of it. Matter of fact, it's the highest thing on the pyramid, and it's the number one thing poisoning us. Do 180° opposite, folks, everything you hear in the media, and somehow, in every aspect of life, I'm not just talking about diet, you'll hit it right every time. Warren, something that I teach my children, you know that—when everyone's making a right, make a left. Somehow, the sheep will always end up over the cliff, right? Somehow. These things, I know they run contrary to what you hear, but that's why it's truth. We'll end with that this year.
Warren: Thank you, Dr. Pompa. Thanks for an amazing year of sharing your hard work, your research. It's painstaking. You don't realize, guys, the amount of time he puts in researching and writing articles and is on this mission full time. It's absolutely amazing. You've done great work for the world this year, Dr. Pompa. I just commend you. On Facebook, just these shows alone, we get the testimony back, we've shared a few of them, just how people's lives all over the world, from Australia, England, Africa. It is absolutely—and I'll show my authentic smile and just energy right now. I'll switch back over to myself, because it has been a blessing to us, Dr. Pompa. A blessing to my life, my family's lives, and lives all over the world. Keep up the hard work in 2015. Actually, my challenge to you, Dr. Pompa, is in 2015, I'm challenging you to put out more information than last year because of your health, because of the way you're adapting to stress in life. I want to see a massive doubling of information from that brain of yours in the New Year in a healthy way, so that we can share back next year at this time, the amazing top five again. Just a thank you and a blessing and a Happy New Year to you and to everyone watching.
Dr. Pompa: Alright, thank you. See you next year.
Warren: Alright, see you guys. Bye-bye.
