This episode is all about fixing the underlying problems that cause metabolic damage and inflammation, leading to autoimmunity, weight gain, diabetes, cancer, and accelerated aging processes.
Dr. Cate Shanahan applied her learning and experiences to write Deep Nutrition: Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food. Together with Dr. Tim DiFrancesco and NBA legend Gary Vitti, she created the PRO Nutrition program for the LA Lakers and helped forge a partnership between Whole Foods Market and numerous NBA teams.
In May of 2018 she began as Director of Metabolic Health for ABC Fine Wine and Spirits, a progressive, family-run company interested in saving money by the betterment of health.
She’s also the Medical & Scientific Advisor at CB Supplements, overseeing their premium-grade multi collagen protein, and for beliv, a forward-thinking Latin American beverage company.
In this podcast, we cover:
- How disease is diet-driven
- Why our diet is making the coronavirus deadly
- Ways to unlock your genetic potential through traditional food
- The importance of agricultural farms
- How to find simplicity with food
- The reasons that oils are public enemy number one
Dr. Cate Shanahan says the virus is scary because, overall, people are unhealthy. Most doctors said that the virus was going to be like a bad flu. However, people are getting really sick from the virus. Dr. Cate says the infection is severe because it can cause phenomena just like the flu. Our diet is making this virus deadly.
More people are getting sicker from the coronavirus because of their diet. Seed oils are making our immune system an inflammation generator. We know that the virus attacks the lining of our blood vessels. When you have a virus that attacks your blood vessels, that’s very dangerous. However, the virus won’t get that far in most of our bodies. If the virus does get far, it happens because of inflammation.
Clinicians don’t learn the fundamental truth about what is making us sick. Doctors think that cholesterol clogs arteries, salt causes hypertension, and saturated fats are bad for us. However, this isn’t the case. Most doctors don’t even look at the ingredients on their food products. It’s time that clinicians are taught how their patients can unlock their genetic potential through traditional foods.
Cookbooks are our original nutrition science books. It’s everything that people used to eat before we had all of these chronic diseases. Traditional food is about extracting nutrition from the environment we lived in. People found out that there’s a way to stay healthy by eating food. Dr. Cate says that Weston Price completely changed her life. Weston says that our physiology reflects the landscape that we live in harmony with – this is where we need to get going.
Later, Dr. Cate explains how to find simplicity with food. For breakfast, Dr. Cate will have a ton of milk, cream, and a little bit of coffee. Everything is grass-fed and raw – it tastes different and a million times better. Another simple breakfast is avocado toast with sprouted grain bread. If you find that healthier food is more expensive, then think that eating healthier will result in less eating. Plus, when you get your energy back, you can do more and work harder.
Stay tuned as we talk about why oils are public enemy number one. Specifically, Dr. Cate says these are the worst oils for your health: canola, corn, cottonseed, soy, sunflower, safflower, grapeseed, and rice bran. Dr. Cate also explains how to find the truth about your health and culinary habits to add to your daily life.
Dr. Cate’s message for the world is that your body is a miracle; please treat it as a miracle.
