Did you know that taking a simple sauna twice a week could spark a complete change in your energy levels? (Hence the title of this blog.) This just one of the interesting, unusual and crazy ideas in today's Zestology Podcast.

Interested in making some small changes for big results? Listen/read on. My guest is someone with a wide amount of expertise in this area. Dr Izabella Wentz has written a hugely popular and well received book on Hashimotos. (Never heard of Hashimotos? It turns out that Hashimotos is really much more common than anyone thought so we look at that at the start of the show).

We also dive straight in general health improvements and yes, sauna therapy. We go into this into a bit of depth, including the uh, sauna incident that left Dr Wentz rather surprised and shocked.

And surprise surprise, it’s a regular theme, we look at nutrition and health and the role that has to play in your overall wellbeing and energy levels.

It’s one of those shows where we go deep, especially at the start, and I love that. There's some real depth in this podcast. I’m honoured to have a real expert in her field on, so let’s speak to Thyroid Pharmacist, Dr Izabella Wentz.

Today, we're after an Aha! Moment to fire up our lives. It turns out the phrase Aha! Moment is actually in the dictionary.

So how do we have an Aha! Moment about our lives? How good would it be to find that thing, that really excites you? That motivates you to get outta bed with extreme energy every morning. In short, how can we all have an Aha! Moment. (Preferably this week, not that we're impatient...)

Today's Zestology guest is the host of a podcast that has taken the iTunes Podcast chart by storm. John Lee Dumas is the host of Entrepreneur On Fire, with over 1000 episodes in the bag and a huge amount of listeners.

And he's made it his business to ask successful, motivated, balanced, happy, energetic people about that lightbulb moment, the point in time when the flash of inspiration struck. So we talk about its importance, his Aha! Moment, and how we might find our own, and how your life can change once you have that Aha! Moment.

When you listen you'll hear:

Today we’re looking at the caveman approach to a healthy heart, body and life with a guest who's got a great story to tell. We dig deep into gluten. What's the deal with gluten? What are the probs? Why are so many people giving it up? How can doing so improve our energy and wellbeing?

Also, if you suffer from Hay Fever, please do listen to today's episode. There are a whole load of natural methods for dealing with the streaming eyes, runny nose, and general stuffiness that Hay Fever brings on.

My guest is Dr Jack Wolfson, the author of the Paleo Cardiologist. He was a conventional cardiologist, a Director of Cardiac Rehabilitation and a very successful heart doctor. But deep down, he was perhaps unsatisfied until he met his future wife, who came from a very different background. I’ll let him tell the story in the podcast, but together they formed a new approach to heart health.

I’m pretty sure you’ve heard of Paleo, but just in case you’ve been living in the dark ages, (actually if you have you might know about Paleo) click here for the brief rundown.

When you listen you'll hear:

Living with more energy

  • What is the modern “good life” [6:38]
  • The impact that pharmaceuticals have on your body and gut (it’s not pretty) [7:55]
  • Why it’s important to get to the root cause of a health issue versus simply prescribing more medication [8:31]
  • Why the foundation of any Paleo diet Pyramid should always be vegetables. [12:10]
  • The American Food Pyramids is outdated and wrong.  What your daily diet should consist of instead [13:45]

Easy, everyday tips for vitality

  • A high quality multi-vitamin should be on everyone’s “to do list” whether you’re young or old. Be sure there are no artificial colors or flavors included! [27:20]
  • Start your day with a green dehydrated vegetable powder to decrease inflammation and cardiac risk every morning [28:55]
  • If you’re trying to introduce your kids to a Paleo lifestyle, try swapping out traditional treats with gluten-free and organic options instead. [34:11]
  • Statins work (according to research paid for by pharmaceutical companies) but there are also harmful side effects that come with their usage. Find better options here. [19:50]

Finding motivation

  • Three great rules to live by are: gluten-free, organic, and soy-free. Here’s why [23:00]
  • Here’s what gluten actually does to your body [25:00]
  • “It’s hard to get a man to understand something, when his job depends on not understand it” [18:50]
  • Go to sleep with the sun down and awake with the sunrise [37:00]

ANNOUNCEMENT: Today's Zestology is also exciting as we have some new music that is pretty awesome, from British DJs Above and Beyond. They are one of the world’s biggest DJ acts, absolutely huge all around the world, their biggest gig I think was 1 million people on Rio beach at Carnival time, and they are also great guys too. They very kindly have agreed to let me use one of their tracks as the new music for Zestology. Take a listen and let me know what you think of our new Above and Beyond music. And thanks again to A&B - awesome work!
