Advanced Cellular Healing Diet: Ketosis and Hormone Normalization – CHTV Episode 19
Warren: Welcome, everyone, to Cellular Healing
TV, Episode 19. We’re here with David Asarnow,
my co-host and aspiring natural health expert.
I think he knows more about natural health
than most people I know, at this point, because
he’s immersed, like I have. That’s how
I’m here. My name’s Warren Philips. We
also have our leader, as far as this movement
in Cellular Healing, Dr. Dan Pompa. We’re
excited. In the last two weeks, we spoke about
hormone dysregulation and the effects of that.
How it can lead to cancer, obviously fatigue,
hair loss, how it even connects into a lot
of the debilitating conditions we have. Your
body’s controlled by hormones, and if your
hormones are off, as we know if you’re watching
this and you’re a lady, or even a guy—when
you’re [0:52] the stress, you’re throwing
things through the wall and you wonder why?
That’s all driven by hormones. We’re trying
to give you the information to get to the
cause of that. Dan, this week—I wasn’t
on last week, didn’t know what you talked
about, but I think this would be a good week
and conversation to move into, we talked about,
estrogen. Obviously, estrogen dominance, some
of the cancers, it can be caused through hormone
dysregulation and the ability of the body
not to move toxins out of the body. We talked
about that causes hormone dysregulation. I
don’t know what you guys planned on doing,
but if not, we can maybe move into thyroid
and some things like that, which is a natural
conversation when we’re talking about hormones.
Thyroid is a hormone.
Dr. Pompa: Actually, I wanted to give—I
announced on Facebook that we were going to
talk about ketosis, and ketogenic diets, as
far as a way to actually normalize hormones.
It’s a tool that we use. It’s a trick.
It’s a way to utilize fat, and a lot of
the things we talked about. I call it the
Advanced Cellular Healing Diet. We have the
Cellular Healing Diet, where we talk about
getting rid of grains and sugars and really
increasing fat. I always define that diet
as it’s a moderate protein diet. High protein
is not good. It’s a moderate carbohydrate
diet. I wouldn’t consider it super low,
because you can eat berries. You can eat as
much vegetables as you want. There’s carbohydrates.
Nuts and seeds. There’s a lot of different
carbohydrates there. I would say as far as
what society would consider, they probably
would consider it a low-carbohydrate diet.
In my eyes, it’s not. I would say it’s
moderate. I do consider it a high fat diet.
The Advanced Cellular Healing Diet, aka keto-adaptation—and
we’ll talk about what that is. Some of you
may not even know what that is. It is a way,
it is better defined as a low-carbohydrate
diet. Moderate protein, just like the Cellular
Healing Diet, and an extremely high fat diet.
It works. It works for certain conditions.
It works for hormone conditions. It can be
used for a short period of time. Some people
choose to stay in it, just like many cultures
in the world have, and still do, stay in that
state. We’ll talk about that today.
Warren: Awesome. That’s what our viewers
ultimately want. We usually create the problem,
but we want to offer the solution. I know
that from the results you’re seeing in your
patients, even the doctors in our program,
that you are coaching in their health as they
jump into our program as part of our—sorry
about that. As part of their program to excel
in their life, to excel in their business,
they have to be doing the things that give
them their life back, so they can have that
energy, the brain function, which the ketosis
diet, the keto-adapted body can do. I’m
really excited, because honestly Dr. Pompa,
I’ve probably been in ketosis, but I haven’t
strictly done your ketosis diet. I’m going
to be taking notes today, I have my notebook
right here, on this topic.
Dr. Pompa: I don’t know. David, let me ask
you. If someone used the word ketosis, what
does that bring to mind, to you?
David: To me?
Dr. Pompa: Yeah, what does it mean to you?
David: To me, it’s a high fat diet that
helps you burn fats more efficiently. It gets
your brain functioning more clearly.
Dr. Pompa: Alright, alright. You know too
much. You know too much. Yeah. [4:32] the
average person’s response.
David: When we started talking about the ketogenic
diet, I’m like, “What? What is that? I
don’t understand it.” Now, all of a sudden,
I’m putting MCT oil and butter into my coffee
in the morning.
Dr. Pompa: [4:49]. Okay, well let me back
Warren: Ask me, Dr. Pompa, because I don’t
know anything about it.
Dr. Pompa: Yes you do, you lie. Alright,
so anyways, we want to be honest with ourselves
here, and realize that most people—
David: When you were talking about it, I didn’t
know anything. I’m like, “What? Who?”
I didn’t understand anything. Yes, and that’s
what most people who are watching this today
Dr. Pompa: Yeah, exactly. A lot of our listeners
are saying, “What? Who? What is keto-adaptation?”
Hey, look, we’re familiar with it. Probably
there’s been a few movies that you’re
familiar with. One was “First Do No Harm,”
and the other, “Lorenzo’s Oil.” Both
of those movies were really made about the
utilization of putting the body in an adaptive
state called ketosis. I’ll explain what
that is in a second.
Warren: Can you say those movies again, because
I think it would be really powerful for someone
Dr. Pompa: “Lorenzo’s Oil” and “First
Do No Harm.”
Warren: “First Do No Harm.” I think that’s
a must-watch. That transformed my life, that
Dr. Pompa: Absolutely. As far back as the
1920s, they’ve utilized this state called
ketosis, where we can eat a super high fat
diet and a super low carbohydrate diet, and
we’ll give you those parameters in a moment,
and put the body in a very unique state of
healing. They used it for all types of different
brain conditions. I think it got popular with
seizures, and how it controlled seizures.
Really, they used it for many different brain
conditions. Memory problems, neurodegenerative
diseases, whether it’s Parkinson’s or
Alzheimer’s. Who knows? That was back in
the 1920s. Then, with the advent of certain
new brain medications like Neurontin and others,
it was just put to the side, like, “We won’t
have to do all that anymore, because we have
these new drugs.” That didn’t work out.
It really hasn’t worked out at all, actually.
Now, in the last few years, with the research
of some really bright scientists and what’s
going on, they’re really utilizing the ketogenic
diet for multiple different conditions, not
even just brain conditions. Hormone conditions,
for one of them. Autoimmune conditions, for
another. The list is growing. Then, what is
this tool that we can utilize, even to get
people that are in severe weight loss resistance
burning fat again? If you’ve watched some
of our last shows, or past shows, I should
say, we’ve educated you on your cells can
only use two things for energy. One, sugar,
aka glucose. Two, fat. That’s it. The bottom
line is, is when we put someone in ketosis,
or a keto-adapted state, we’re forcing their
cells to only use fat. The problem with this
is the brain can only really use glucose.
It can’t utilize fat. What happens is, is
this process is so unique that through the
process of burning fat, you actually make
something called ketones. Ketones, your brain
can use. Not only does your brain use them.
David spilled the beans a little bit and said,
actually, your brain prefers ketones. As a
matter of fact, your brain works about 25
percent better on them. That’s why we see
a lot of the healing and the brain healing
that takes place. Through some more modern
day studies now, we know that some other things
take place. We used to think when we put someone
in ketosis, in this fat burning state, that
they would produce more fats and certain things
in this state. The fact is, what happens is
because the cells are only burning fat—let
me give you an analogy I think everyone can
relate to. If you put coal or wood in your
fireplace, you get a lot of smoke. If you
burn natural gas from your stove, do you see
a lot of smoke? No, it burns much cleaner.
That’s the way fat burns. Fat burns very,
very clean, as opposed to sugar or glucose,
which burns like wood or coal. There’s a
lot of byproduct. When you put someone in
a state where their cells are only burning
fat for energy, you take away all these pollutants,
we’ll just say, in the cell. It’s called
ROS, reactive oxygen species. Those things
can cause inflammation. Our body has to get
rid of those things to down regulate that
oxidated stress and inflammation. When we
put someone in a state of ketosis, we see
a down regulation of cellular inflammation.
It’s a way of fixing the cell membrane,
what we’ve told you in the past is on the
cell membrane is where the hormone receptors
are. We know that when we put the cell in
this adapted state, where it’s only using
fat, it burns much cleaner. It therefore down
regulates all the pollution and the inflammation
that the cell’s making when it burns energy.
The neat thing is the same thing happens in
the brain. Ketones burn very clean. It’s
a very clean source of fuel. That’s some
of hte basic principle of what ketosis is.
We’re forcing the body to go into a state
where it needs fat for energy. How long does
it take to get into that state? It takes about
two to four weeks, depending on the person,
to get into that state. We have to drop their
carbohydrate intake, on average, some people
less, but on average, under 50 grams.
Warren: What does look like, 50 grams, Dr.
Pompa, as far as vegetables? Dr. Pompa; Anybody
can go online and Google “How many carbohydrates
are in broccoli?” You have to measure the
carbohydrates even in vegetables, even healthy
vegetables. The idea is we’re starving down
the body of glucose so it must utilize fat
for energy. We can’t get any type of carbohydrate,
even from good sources, because we’re switching
the cell’s energy source. What does that
look like? You could eat a nice big salad.
That would probably only be maybe 10, 15 grams
of carbohydrates, if you ate a really big
salad. The average salad’s probably under
ten, or ten. Of course, meat has zero carbohydrates.
Eggs have zero. Heavy whipping cream has zero.
Cheese has zero carbs. Vegetables, nuts, seeds,
yeah, you have to count those. Of course,
you can go online and say, “How many carbs
does this have?” There’s a thousand websites
that help you do that.
Warren: Dr. Pompa, as far as protein though,
you’re probably getting to that, is there
some complications there at all?
Dr. Pompa: Yeah. You don’t want to—the
old Atkins Diet, people were just loading
up on protein. Protein can rev up the cell,
and protein can obviously affect your DNA.
High protein is not good. We don’t want
to replace our calories with high protein,
which many do. We want to replace it with
fat. You want 70, 80 percent of your calories
coming from fat. We’ll talk about some strategies
that I give my patients, called my 2-2-2 Rule,
to get those fats in them.
Dr. Pompa: [11:54] replace that. Pretty much
after 25 grams of protein per meal—bigger
people can probably tolerate more, smaller
people less, but most of the protein is then
converted to sugar through a process called
gluconeogeneis. We really don’t want to
go over 25 grams per meal. I’m always asked
the question of, “How much protein per day?”
I would say the average 150-pound person,
anywhere from 50 to 100 grams of protein a
day is probably normal. You’re exercising
real heavy, could you do 150? Yes, but anything
over that is going to be damaging and convert
to sugar. I stay, myself, under 100 grams.
Probably more around 50 to 75 is where I say,
for [12:42] protein.
David: This is very different than people
are hearing anywhere. This is 180-degree lifestyle.
Dr. Pompa: Yeah, always. Right? Exactly. We’re
actually forcing people to eat more fat, and
we’re dropping their carbohydrate intakes.
Again, I think one of the problems we see
in studies where people say, “This study
showed that low carbohydrate diets—” blah
blah blah blah. Again, they call low carbohydrate
diet, believe it or not, 180 grams of carbohydrates
a day. None of us listening to this, even
when we’re not in a ketogenic diet, would
eat that many carbohydrates. That’s oftentimes,
in studies, what they call a low carbohydrate
diet. Also, they look at studies where they
don’t allow somebody enough time to adapt,
keto-adapt, so they’re looking at the first
two weeks and getting results. You can’t
look at it that way, because it takes about
two weeks to four weeks to keto-adapt, meaning
that in that time, your body’s still using
sugar in the cell. It’s a very difficult
process, for some people, until they adapt.
Once you cross that threshold, now you’re
an efficient fat burning machine. I became
re-interested in this. For years, I’ve utilized
these diets with some of the seizure patients
that I’ve had, and also, some neurodegenerative
patients. It’s amazing to watch what happens.
I never really utilized it for hormones, hormone
conditions and other things like that. It
was after reading a lot of studies over the
past year or so that I really got interested
in using it for other types of conditions.
It’s amazing what happens in this time.
It was really reading an article in Men’s
Fitness—I spoke to a gentleman on the airplane.
I was talking to him about high fat, and how
important fat is, etcetera, and he says, “Oh
look, this article will interest you.” It
was about a cyclist named David—did you
all lose me? Okay.
Warren: Oh, no.
David: You opened a Capture Smile, it says.
Dr. Pompa: I didn’t open anything, it just
clicked on. Can you hear me now?
Dr. Pompa: Okay, back. Okay. I x’d out of
it, just popped up on my screen. Anyways,
so the article was about a cyclist, Dave Zabriskie,
and others, who basically, to make themselves
more efficient and to be able to race 100
plus miles without even eating, they put themselves
into a keto state. They get this lasting energy.
Here’s the bottom line. Look, cyclists have
to eat every few hours, or marathon runners,
whatever, endurance athletes, because your
body can only store about 1500 to 2000 calories,
which you can burn through in a couple hours.
On even someone very lean, like myself or
any of us here, we have at least 100,000 calories
stored in fat. Therefore, in this keto state,
your body utilizes that fat very quickly for
energy. You become what we call bulk proof,
where you can literally just go and go and
go and go on fat. Last summer, I experimented
with it myself, and I realized I could go
out without eating, and I could ride five,
six hours and not have to eat, because I’m
in this keto state. Came out of it, and then
I obviously wasn’t able to do that. It’s
really neat, from an athletic standpoint,
and it’s obviously, for our standpoint,
really, it’s really neat from just a healing
standpoint. I know I opened up a lot of questions
that are on [16:25] minds, so fire away.
Warren: [16:30] if they’re on CellularHealing.tv,
there’s a Facebook chat down below this
video. If you’re actually on the site CellularHealing.tv,
if you go there, in order for the program
to work, you have to accept our [16:45]. That’s
the only way this CellularHealing.tv works
through the social platform. You can ask your
questions there, and there’s also a “ask
questions” button down, which will send
me an email. I was working out yesterday,
and I’ve been intermittent fasting. Actually
my trainer, who is kind of an 80s trainer,
we listen to 80s music, at some level, great
guy, but he’s very open to new things. Some
of the younger trainers coming in do blood
work and all this stuff, understand ketosis
and intermittent fasting. He’s noticing
on intermittent fasting, he says, “Hey,
I’m losing a lot of mass.” I said, “You
say you’re in ketosis because you can see
that you’re getting leaner,” but I said,
“You’re actually probably now. If you’re
in ketosis, you may still be able to maintain
your muscle mass.” Of course, he eats sugar
and bread and things like that on occasion,
having their days off, if you will. I just
wanted to see what your opinion was on ketosis
diet and still building muscle and staying
lean. I know for me, I’m not in ketosis
right now. I’m intermittent fasting. Ever
since we came back from California, eating
three meals a day, I definitely put on five
pounds of fat. I was chunky and not lean.
Two weeks of intermittent fasting, I’m ripped
again. However, I know I’m not in ketosis.
When it comes to muscle building, that sort
of thing, can ketosis actually be a benefit?
Dr. Pompa: Yeah, it is. As a matter of fact,
Warren, when I go into ketosis I—actually,
I asked for this. I want to show this. I asked
Merily to bring me this up. She was [18:24].
Warren: Did she just whip it at you?
Dr. Pompa: Not trying to whip at me, but trying
to give it to me without being seen in her
nightgown, probably. [18:32] what did it look
like? Did it just come falling in like a meteor?
Anyways, that’s funny. I’m going to have
to rewind. I want to see what that looked
like. Anyways, I will show you want came flying
in like a meteor in one second. Yeah, when
I go into a state of ketosis, Warren, I actually
gain some weight. I’m a muscle eater. My
body will take muscle and burn it into glucose,
if I don’t have it. When I’m in ketosis,
it doesn’t need glucose, because it’s
very efficient at using fat. Therefore, it
doesn’t touch my muscle. We know in studies,
also, that we have higher levels of branched-chain
amino acids. Branched-chain amino acids are
utilized for muscle building. If we test someone
in ketosis and not in ketosis, we see higher
levels of branched-chain amino acids. It’s
unclear if the body’s producing them. Dr.
Jabolek [phonetic 19:29] feels that our body’s
sparing the muscle, and that’s why we find
higher levels. I agree with him. We find higher
levels of branched-chain amino acids because
your body doesn’t need them. It’s sparing
its muscle. Therefore, they’re higher in
circulation Yes, it means that you’re maintaining
your muscle mass. We see higher levels of
branched-chain amino acids. We see less muscle
wasting. Someone thin like myself, it’s
magic. Therefore, I get more out of intermittent
fasting when I’m in ketosis, Warren. Yesterday,
I didn’t eat one meal until 5:00. I burned
fat. I tested my ketones, which I’ll talk
about in a second, and it was extremely high.
I ate dinner last night, and actually, I ate
probably, I ate a ton of carbs. I fasted all
day, I ate a huge salad, I had some raw milk
with some protein in it, I had soy, I had
some of these seed things. It was only one
meal a day, so I was still under 50 I’m
sure, but for that one meal, it was a lot
of carbs. Then this morning I tested my ketones
and I was in the twos. In your notes, you
cant write, “Nutritional ketosis, not diabetic
ketosis.” There’s a massive difference.
That’s from having no insulin. Your body
will run blood ketone levels far above 20,
and it’s not good at all. It’s deadly,
actually. However, nutritional ketosis is
defined by blood ketone levels of .5 to 5.
.5 to 5, that’s nutritional ketosis. Once
you adapt, you will always be within that
range. Morning level ketones are typically
lower. As the day goes on, it raises about
25 percent. I utilize this machine here. It’s
called Precision Xtra, and it comes with one
of these little prickers that are super fast,
you don’t feel. I take it and I prick the
finger. You don’t even feel it, these things
are so fast. Put out a little blood. There
are strips that go in there. This meter, by
the way, is about $25 online. The strips,
however, you have to buy on eBay, because
they’re expensive. You can get them for
about $2 to $3. eBay, you’ll get them for
$2, or $2.50. You put the strip in there,
and then you just touch [21:55] blood, that’s
it. In about ten seconds, you have your reading.
I was, like I said, a 2.7, I think, this morning.
Dr. Pompa: Which meant that I was burning
fat all night long, very efficiently. It’s
a cool way to see when you adapt. I’ll talk
about some strategies, because the body can
get so adapted that it wants to hold on to
fat. Again, your body always is worried about
starvation. There are some tricks that we’ll
talk about here in a minute that can break
you out of that phase. It makes it really
neat, because during those times, you can
actually carb load and burn more fat.
Warren: Hey Dan, I wanted to try a little
drawing app. It’s going to visually show
what the cell is doing, versus being a sugar
burner for fat burner. You mind if I try that
real quick, with a new tool?
Dr. Pompa: No, try it.
Warren: Okay, if it works—accept that invitation
for drawing app, by the way, I sent you.
Dr. Pompa: Maybe that’s what popped up.
Warren: Yeah, that was what it was.
Dr. Pompa: I x’d out of it now.
Warren: That’s alright, I’ll re-invite
you. I think I may have to re-invite you on
that. Yeah, so let me see if I can get this
to work up on my screen here. There, can you
see that? Does everyone see that?
Dr. Pompa: Yeah, I see that. Yep.
Warren: Okay, so as long as I’m talking,
you can see it.
David: I don’t see it.
Warren: You don’t see it? Wait, hold on.
Look at my picture down belong.
David: Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. I see it.
Warren: Perfect, okay. As long as I’m talking,
I think I might be able to lock my screen
in. I can turn yours off. Then Dan, you can
speak to this. I’m just going to do the
best I can as far as drawing. The only thing
that where you can do text and stamps and
all kinds of cool stuff here. Last week, I
remember, I was starting to draw this for
everybody. Actually today it’s really clear.
I was going to do mitochondrial cars. Maybe
I should just—you guys can see that pretty
well, I’d imagine.
Dr. Pompa: Yeah, yeah. It’s perfect.
Warren: Yeah, so what I was going ot discuss
on this is those are cells and those are your
little mitochondria. This is Dr. Pompa’s
analogy. If you are in—I’ll put one ketosis,
one not in ketosis, because we want our viewers
to really understand what we’re doing. Dr.
Pompa’s an amazing teacher. If I were to
explain this, I would never come up with this
analogy, but he does. That’s what I love.
I’m going to make a little tailpipe on each
of these and really show the mess versus what
ketosis does. I think this shows some benefits,
Dan, to [24:59] the ketosis [25:00] even though
I have my black thing in there, and that messes
it up. When your cells are running on sugar,
which everybody’s getting cravings throughout
the day, you’re eating multiple times, you’re
getting woken up in the middle of the night—your
hormones are telling you, “I need sugar
to run my mitochondria,” which are the cars
of your body. They’re the little engines
that make you speak, talk, think. It supplies
energy to every metabolic pathway in your
body. It’s the energy ACP. It’s the life.
It’s one of the 5 R’s. It’s going to
do whatever it takes, if you’re not a fat
burner, to give you the cravings of sugar.
There’s a major issue with that, right Dr.
Pompa? It’s the waste products that’s
produced, which causes internal toxicity,
cellular inflammation, less production of
ATP, obviously. As you’re looking at this,
Dan, you can tell me to write some other things
down on these two different scales.
Dr. Pompa: One of the things is, and it’s
an analogy gave at the seminar, is I said
these new natural gas cars, they burn no emission.
That’s like when you’re in ketosis. They
can go for miles. They can go for 800 miles.
They’re not only more efficient, but they
burn so clean. That’s really the analogy.
Otherwise, you’re burning sugar, which burns
much more dirty, if you will. The other thing
that’s really important to not is that really
what’s aging us, there’s something called
glycation. Glycation is sugar, or glucose,
that attaches to proteins in your body, and
it causes an aging process, like rust. Glycation,
we heard of age spots. Glycation is, there’s
something called AGEs. It’s called Advanced
Glycation End Products. Those things are linked
to really premature aging. People that have
more of these AGEs, these Advanced Glycation
End Products, they’re aging faster. By the
way, that’s why diabetics, they die and
age faster than normal. They have too much
glucose at times, up and down. This glycation
is really degenerating them from the inside
out. When you’re in ketosis, you don’t
have glycation. Fat is innocent, it doesn’t
cause glycation. By the way, that was a question
I had. Fuel is so much better. Why would our
cell prioritize the glucose? If you give it
a choice, it’s going to burn the glucose
instead of the fat. Why would it do that,
it’s intelligent, if the fat is so much
better? Glucose is so damaging in the blood.
It causes this glycation. Therefore, when
it’s there, the body wants to burn it out.
Otherwise, it knows it will poison itself.
If we take the glucose away, we lower our
carbohydrate intake, then we force it to use
this more clean, efficient fuel, now we can
down regulate cellular inflammation, affect
hormones, and even get our bodies to burn
fat where it otherwise would not. It sounds
so simple, but there’s something that happens
in this process. The body is always very,
very intelligent and wants to survive. It
thinks, at times, “I don’t know if another
day’s coming when we’re not going to have
food.” Therefore, it becomes so efficient
at fat burning that what it does is it really
starts to almost cause the insulin receptors
to become less efficient, if you will. Why?
It wants to hold on to that belly fat that
you have. It wants to hold on to those stores,
just in case food runs out. Your body always
wants to survive and adapt, so it will slow
the fat burning process down, get more efficient
at using fat, but therefore, it’s burning
less. It’s good, but if you want to burn
more fat, it’s bad. How do we deal with
that? How do we break the body out of that
adaptation mode? Something in the weight lifting
world we know is true is you never want to
go in the gym and do the same thing over and
over again. Your body adapts, it reaches homeostasis,
and then it really doesn’t get any stronger
or better. Good trainers are always changing
every workout. Change, change, change, change,
change, change, change. Therefore, the body
doesn’t know what’s happening. It’s
called the confusion principle. It works.
We don’t think about using that for diet,
but it does work. What I do is I put people
on what I call my 5-1-1 Rule, where we do
5 days a week of keeping carbohydrates under
50 grams, 1 day a week your choice, and you
fast completely, don’t eat at all. Just
take in water for this 24 hours period, and
then eat the next day. Then the other day—so
that’s six days. The other day, I typically
don’t put those to the fasting day near
this day, we do a carb load day. I’m not
talking about eating pizza, although it would
still work, if you’re not a sick person.
You carb load and you eat tons of vegetables,
drink tons of Amasi, tons of Suero Gold, and
you literally just load up with carbohydrates,
and something amazing happens. You’ll find
that just two days after that, you’ll be
leaner than you ever have, even though you
broke out of ketosis for that day. What you
did is you said to your body, “It’s okay,
we’re not starving,” and you filled your
glycogen stores back up. It says, “Okay,
we’re good. We’re not going to starve,”
and it breaks out of that adaptation mode.
It’s neat. I’ve experimented with it,
even for two days. For some people, everybody’s
a little different, some people even two day
things—so you can take Friday and Saturday
and just eat what you want, basically, or
at least higher carbohydrates. I try to bring
the carbohydrates up to at least 100 to 150,
even 200, depending on how big the person
is, etcetera. It works magically. You can
also, some of the thyroid people that we see,
they do better with high protein days. Instead
of a high carb day, we’ll actually just
increase their protein to 100, 150, even 200.
That seems to work better for some of those
people. It’s interesting, Warren, because
when we came back from Napa, I was out of
ketosis for about four days, maybe even five.
Soon as I came back, I put myself back into
ketosis. Soon as I went back in, I noticed
that I got massively lean. Vascular lean like
I couldn’t believe. It was because I actually
fooled my body once again, and I did it for
more days. The confusion principle works.
It’s something that I’ve learned over
the last year, that changing it up is really
the key. Most people out there, they’re
on the same diet, same foods. It actually
is working against you, because of the innate
intelligence and how it adapts. The more you
change it up, the better. Everybody is a little
different. I’ve learned that, too. Some
people do better with high protein, some people
do better with two days, one day. I works
like magic. That’s something that we do,
and it really does work. It’s amazing.
David: Looks like Warren’s been drawing
some pictures over on his screen.
Dr. Pompa: Yeah, exactly. Warren, start talking.
David: What are you doing?
Warren: Can you guys see my pictures at this
David: Yes, we do. We see you.
Warren: Okay, so this is a new drawing tool,
which I like, and then I can make smiley faces
for my daughter with this. This will be good.
These are two cells. Again, this is the mitochondria
right here, in both of these cells. Two mitochondria.
What Dr. Pompa’s talking about, when you
make the transition and you keto adapt, your
body goes through a really unique process
where it’s no longer using glucose, which
is very inefficient, like nasty gasoline.
Think about an old Model T car spitting big
puffs of smoke out of the back tire—the
back tire, the back of the car, or Chitty
Chitty Bang Bang, something you can relate
to that. It is definitely just putting all
kinds of smoke and toxins—and not only is
it inefficient, meaning it doesn’t make
as much energy per calorie, if you will, it
also creates a lot of internal toxicity. Just
think about this is now a toxic cell. Not
only is it creating more toxins, as we show
here, this also creates cellular inflammation
and aging for multiple reasons. One of them,
Dan said, is Advanced Glycation End Products.
As we know, it’s pain or pleasure to get
people to move. You realize, and obviously,
our internal vanity, those big nasty age spots
that you start getting on your face as you
get older, the main way that that’s a reflection
of what your cells are doing, and those AGEs
Dr. Pompa’s talking about. If you want to
get rid of those age spots and not age and
look old, you got to move and keto adapt over
to where you’re using fat for energy. When
you’re using fat for energy, you’re actually
lowering your aging. You’re slowing down
the aging process. Your skin’s not oxidizing.
It’s not getting, essentially, burnt and
oxidation rusted. You’re going to have less
toxicity. You’re going to get rid of a lot
of the cellular inflammation, which when you
have cellular inflammation, as Dr. Pompa teaches
in his 5 R’s, good things can’t come in
and bad things can’t go out, so you have
what’s called cellular toxicity. Eventually,
you get a sick cell, which dies. That’s
called something mit—cellularmit, whatever
Dr. Pompa: Apoptosis.
Warren: Apoptosis, that dies. If you continue
to do what you’re doing, you’re going
to age faster and create toxicity leading
to disease, dysfunction, even cellular division
issues, which they call cancer. If you do
high fat diet and you become a fat burner,
you can see there’s very little waste product,
you’re very efficient, you have high energy,
you actually put energy in here, and—whoops.
I’ll use the writing tool from now on, but
you’ll have higher energy. Here you’re
going to have lower energy. One of the main
things that people care about, Dr. Pompa,
can really be solved through the keto adaptation,
having the ketose diet, getting on the Advanced
Cellular Healing Diet. Doing the rules that
you just shared, following that program, you’re
going to get a lot of what you want on the
inside and outside. You’re going to look
better, you’re going to get leaner, you’re
going to lose fat, burn fat, and you’re
going to have more energy. Coffee can’t
do that. Coffee can stimulate a cell, jack
up your hormones, and things like that, but
it’s not a long-term solution and you crash
again. If you really want to be efficient,
look and feel great, and make a difference
in your life an the lives of those around
you, this message, we have to continue to
preach it, and people like you need to get
onboard, share it on Facebook, and make a
difference with your friends.
Dr. Pompa: One of the keys is when you’re
in a keto-adapted state, glucose is the same
across the board. Most [36:31] glucose up,
glucose is down. Glucose is up, glucose is
down. They’re hungry all the time. They
can’t control appetite. They’re up, they’re
down, they’re up, they’re down, burning
muscle. When you’re adapted, you’re like
this. You want to age slower? You want to
have constant energy all day long? This is
what you want your glucose to look like, and
that’s what ketosis does. It’s a really
neat adapted state. David, I know you have
some questions, but before you get off, I
do want to explain my 2-2-2 Rule. It’s a
way of getting into ketosis faster, and it’s
a way of making the adaptation process smooth.
Go ahead, David.
David: Two questions. Actually, one big question.
The quality of the fats, because we’re talking
about fats, and people are thinking they can
just go out there and just eat fat. Let’s
talk a little bit about the quality of fats,
because a lot of it is GMO filled. How important
is the kind of meats that you eat and the
kind of fat that you’re putting in, the
Dr. Pompa: Yeah, right. Of course, fats that
come from meat are fantastic. Saturated fats,
which your body actually loves to burn, by
the way, saturated fats. If it comes from
a cow that eats grain, then yeah, it’s filled
with a GMO, or it’s filled with the wrong
types of ratios of fats, etcetera, it really
messes the fat up. We want grass-fed fat,
which we’ve talked about in the other shows.
Saturated fat and cholesterol really are he
key. They’re key fats. There’s another
type of fat that we love to help push into
ketosis. It’s called medium-chain triglycerides,
MCTs. We’ve heard of the benefits of coconut
oil. Matter of fact, online, if you Google
“Alzheimer’s and coconut oil,” you’d
find some videos of people taking two tablespoons
of coconut oil—if you see, there’s a clock
test that they have Alzheimer’s patients
draw. Then they’re not able to draw it.
They take two tablespoons of coconut oil,
and an hour later, they can draw the clock
dramatically better. There’s plenty of videos
to see that. Why does that occur? They’re
using it to show the benefits of coconut oil.
It’s because of what coconut oil contains.
60% of the fat in coconut oil is a medium-chain
triglyceride. They burn very quickly. They
help you become a fat burner, and they burn
ketones. The [38:52] are these things called
ketones, for medium-chain triglycerides. The
brain works 25 percent better. When you eat
those two tablespoons, you just get a burst
of ketones. What they don’t show on the
video is three hours later, they’re back
to drawing the clock messed up again. How
can we get that state all the time? We get
someone burning ketones all the time, not
just taking the one tablespoon. The point
is this. We like those types of fats to get
that ketone ball rolling, and those fats are
very healthy. My 2-2-2 Rule ensures that somebody’s
eating enough fat in their diet. Not just
fat, David, but what you brought up, the good
fat. I have them do two tablespoons of coconut
oil a day, minimum—minimum, these are minimum,
two tablespoons of raw butter a day, and,
this may surprise some of you, two teaspoons
of salt. Why salt? When you’re adapting
through ketosis, your body’s losing tons
of water. When it loses glycogen, glycogen
is stored sugar, there’s three—for every
molecule of glycogen there’s three molecules
of sugar. What happens is you’re losing
this—I’m sorry, sugar—water. You’re
losing water when you lose glycogen, and you
lose electrolytes like sodium potassium, and
then you start feeling weak. 2-2-2. Two tablespoons
of coconut oil, two tablespoons of grass-fed
butter, and two teaspoons, teaspoons, of sea
salt a day. The rule is this. If you feel
dizzy, tired, rapid heart rate, or just mentally
slower, more sea salt. It’s the antidote
for those symptoms. The 2-2-2 Rule applies.
Oftentimes we, on our website, Warren, we
have a medium-chain triglyceride that’s
made from just coconut, which I prefer. It’s
in a glass bottle, which I prefer. That’s
pure, 100 percent MCT oil. That acts like
glucose. When you’re in this adaptation
phase and you feel your energy going, this
pure MCT oil acts as this fuel. You can utilize
a tablespoon of that a day with a tablespoon
of coconut oil a day, offset and utilize both
of them. Anyways, there’s one more product
I do want to recommend. When I said two tablespoons
of butter, because butter has some very unique
fats. I would give one tablespoon of grass-fed
butter you can buy at Whole Foods or another
grocery store, then I’ll give it another
tablespoon of something called X-Factor Butter
Oil. We sell it on our website. X-Factor Butter
Oil. Matter of fact, I have a boy who is a
severe colitis patient. When we started giving
him the X-Factor Butter Oil—they’ve taken
it all, they’ve done it all. It was the
thing that gave him normal stools. Immediately,
when they started taking it, it was like immediately,
his gut inflammation went down. I have watched
amazing things happen since I’ve been utilizing
that oil with my gut patients. It is unbelievable.
Butter oil is, the cows graze only when the
grass is rapidly growing, and that’s all
they eat. It produces something Weston Price
called X-Factor. It’s only in that butter.
It’s not in other butter. It is absolutely
healing to the body, the cell, and the gut.
Anyways, I’ll replace a tablespoon of that
in there. That’s a way of getting very unique
fats, David, very special fats, and making
sure a patient gets enough fat. The 2-2-2
Rule, it works.
Warren: Hey, Dr. Pompa, on that X-Factor Butter,
I know they have a lot of different products.
Which ones do you recommend? I know [42:47].
Dr. Pompa: In Weston Price’s travels, he
traveled the earth looking at people who are
extremely healthy and people who weren’t.
He found that these people who really thrive,
they all ingested this X-Factor Oil. He found
that it was a combination of X-Factor Oil
with cod liver oil, fermented cod liver oil,
that made the biggest difference. They have
one called Blue Ice Royal that is a combination
of cod liver oil and X-Factor Oil, just the
way Weston Price said that he saw these miracles
happening. I like the plain X-Factor Oil,
Butter Oil, and I love the combination. Those
two are absolutely my favorites. By the way,
they have flavored ones that are real flavors,
because sick people take these things and
they can’t do artificial anything. The flavored
ones, especially with the Blue Ice Royal with
the cod liver oil, definitely the way to go.
I think we carry those on our website. We
may have ran out, and we may be waiting for
a new shipment coming in, but the MCT oil
and the X-Factor Butter Oil, amazing, amazing
healers. One more thing about the MCT oil.
People that go, “I can’t digest fat,”
because they’re toxic and their bile is
all sludged up, right? That’s very common.
They don’t produce much bile that you need
to digest fat. MCT Oil absorbs right through
even the worse of a gut, and you don’t need
to break it down. It just absorbs right in,
and it’s pure energy. If you have trouble
breaking fat down, the MCT Oil is magic. Don’t
take too much at once, or you’ll end up
like Dr. Pompa, with severe stomach pain and
diarrhea. You have to take little bits at
David: Yeah, but you took a bad brand, Dr.
Pompa, so that was part of the issue.
Dr. Pompa: It was a bad brand. It had a lot
of the palm stuff in it. I didn’t do well
with that. If you take too much though, and
I took four tablespoons at once, I experiment
on myself and Warren. That wasn’t smart.
Warren: I just ran to our store that we have,
we have a store here at our office, and this
is what we’re using.
Dr. Pompa: Yeah, that’s a great product.
Warren: A lot of our docs will see this as
well, that are watching that. This is a really
high quality MCT oil. Boy, this picture’s
really clear today. It’s by NuMedica, and
it’s on our site. If you want the Revelation
Health, like revelation in the bible, revelationhealth.com,
if you just type in the “search for a product,”
you type in MCT—not MTC, M Molly, C Cat,
T Tom, you’ll be able to find that. It’s
the best quality. We’ve looked at a bunch
of them, actually spent several hours, made
some phone calls. There’s a lot of other
brands out there that are in plastic bottles,
and they say that they’re best. Even some
of our physicians [45:46] that have them,
they’re in plastic bottles. This is the
only one I could find online in glass. All
coconut oil, all straight medium-chain triglycerides.
I’m pretty proud of that one, and I know
Dr. Pompa [46:01].
Dr. Pompa: I told Warren, I said, “Look,
find the best dang MCT oil on the market.
It has to be all from coconut. Warren does
it every time. Warren, you might want to,
before we get off, show them the bottle of
the X-Factor Oil. We probably don’t have
one. I think we’re sold out right now.
Warren: We are sold out, but we have a shipment
coming in Tuesday next week.
David: Just in time for me to be in Pittsburgh
and take one home with me.
Dr. Pompa: Next week, I want to announce next
week’s show. Warren, I’m going to be showing—speaking
of Warren’s little research on great products,
I put together a very simple little detox,
little daily detox program. I get a lot of
questions on infrared saunas. Which one, what
about them, how good are they? I want to do
the show about infrared saunas. I’m going
to introduce something that I just—it’s
a little daily detox thing with how to utilize
infrared saunas. How to actually dump your
liver and your bile. It’s a liver cleanse
an a cleanse utilizing infrared sauna on next
week’s show. I’m actually going to show
it here. I’ll be a really neat show. You’re
going to get a lot out of it. This is something
that we all can do. You can do it periodically,
and really just purge out some toxins very
quickly. I think it’ll be a great show.
Tell your friends tune in. You’re going
to gain a really cool thing that I’ve learned
along the way.
Warren: I’m excited, guys. It’s been a
great show. I’m excited for next week. I
haven’t heard this new protocol yet. I just
got the sauna. I’ve been searching for saunas,
I don’t know how long, Dr. Pompa—since
2006. I haven’t found the right sauna for
us, because the wood ones, and they get too
hot, and the toxins in it, and then they’re
smelly. Are they junk? Are they from China?
All this stuff. We finally found a really
good brand that we’re testing and using
with our doctors and physicians across the
country. That’s really exciting, because
I just got mine after years, believe it or
not. I’ve used them, just a few weeks ago,
and so did Dr. Pompa. We’re going to show
you how to use it, and I’m going to learn
from it again, just like I learned from it
today. Thanks, Dr. Pompa, for your time, David.
Dr. Pompa: Thank you.
Warren: Let’s rock out our days, everybody.
