Podcast 221: How to Detox the Right Way.

Screen Shot 2013-09-19 at 3.12.19 PMby Sean Croxton

Of all of the systems of the body, I’d say that I’m the weakest when it comes to my knowledge on detoxification.

I’m really not sure why. Maybe it’s because I’d much rather study poop than the liver.

Regardless, when your game isn’t quite up to par you bring in the big guns to take you to the next level.

So on this episode of Underground Wellness Radio, my new friend Dr. Andrea Maxim ND stopped by to fill in some of the blanks for me and to help YOU discover the right way to detox.

by Sean Croxton

These guys know their sh*t.

(Sorry, just couldn’t help myself…)

Jordan Reasoner and Steve Wright of SCD Lifestyle joined me on Underground Wellness Radio a few weeks ago to teach you how to have the perfect poop.

According to listener feedback, this was one of the very best episodes we’ve had all year — tons of amazing info on hormones, detox, intestinal infections, lab testing, and gut healing protocols.

The Art of Bone Broth.

bb_bannerby Sean Croxton

You asked for this.

Back in October, my main man and favorite real food chef Lance Roll was my guest on UW Radio. We spoke about all things bone broth — the benefits, the science, and the preparation.

Since that show, Chef Lance has been swamped with emails from listeners asking if he ships his broth to locations outside of San Diego. Unfortunately, due to logistical issues — such as the broth thawing while en route — shipping was not an option at the time.

But I’ve got good news for you. The chef got it all figured out and is now shipping directly to your doorstep!

Last month Lance stopped by my place, where we filmed the video below showing you exactly what to do with your broth when it arrives. He also shows you a few ways to add a little extra flavor and nutrition to what he calls “the magical elixir”.

To order your own batch of broth, head over to www.thebrothery.com.

Enjoy the video! If you missed our radio broadcast, click the mini-player below the video.

It’s Not About the Food: Reconnecting with Mark Sisson.

by Sean Croxton

Oh no, not another one!

That’s exactly what went through my head when I heard that Mark Sisson had a new book on the way.

In my opinion, the last thing the world needs right now is yet another Paleo book recommending that we eat real food and remove grains and dairy from our diets.

I think I’ve read that book about 15 times — with 15 different authors and titles — in the past year or so.

Besides, Mark did an outstanding job teaching us what to eat in The Primal Blueprint. What more could he have to offer in his latest opus The Primal Connection?

The answer is quite a bit. In fact, The Primal Connection has little, if anything, to do with diet. It’s about all of that other stuff.

That other stuff has become one of my favorite topics these days. Yes, we know that our dietary choices can have a dramatic impact on gene expression, switching the good (or bad) genes on or off. But it doesn’t end there.

Environmental factors — social interactions, sunlight exposure, our inner dialogue, and even laughter — can have just as profound an effect on our genes as what we stuff into our mouths. I’ll give you a few examples:

Did you know that laughter turns on the genes that fire up your immune system by increasing production of NK (natural killer) cells responsible for defending against cancers, infections, and other bugs?

I remember learning in my CHEK Holistic Lifestyle Coaching course that the average person chuckles just once a day. A chuckle. That’s not even a full-blown laugh!

Functional Fat Loss Webinar!

Webinar blackboard sign
by Sean Croxton and Reed Davis

By popular demand!

Last night, Functional Diagnostic Nutrition founder, Reed Davis, myself, and about 400 attendees got together for this year’s first FREE webinar. The topic: Functional Fat Loss.

What does Functional Fat Loss mean?

Well, it means that fat loss is not just a matter of diet and exercise. As Reed pointed out early in his presentation, fat accumulation can be a symptom of some underlying — and often unaddressed — dysfunction within the hormonal, digestive, detoxification, and immune systems.

Diet and exercise are just two pieces of a MUCH larger puzzle.

For example, did you know that 60-percent of your thyroid hormone is activated in your liver? This particular hormone holds great influence over your metabolism. So if your liver is clogged up — due to toxins from food, personal care and cleaning products, as well as the general environment — this can put the brakes on your fat loss goals!

As a matter of fact, another 20-percent of thyroid is activated by the bacteria in your gut. The problem is that most of us have imbalanced gut flora, thus compromised metabolisms.

Click below to WATCH last night’s webinar.

I’ll be honest with you. While we intended this webinar to be for the general population, Reed got a bit carried away and was a bit too technical and jargon-y. That’s my fault for not reviewing the slides beforehand. My bad.

Due to this, Reed and I have decided to record a simplified version of the presentation. I’ll be posting it to this blog as soon as it is done.

So if you’re relatively new to this functional stuff, this may not be the webinar for you. But if you’re a trainer, health practitioner, or a nerd like me, this will be like brain candy for you.

Be sure to stick around to the end, when Reed and I offer you a $300 discount on the Functional Diagnostic Nutrition certification course. Use the coupon code UW300 at www.fdncourse.com.

If you’re interested in finding an FDN practitioner to work with, you may locate one HERE.

And last but not least, I will be hosting a Q&A session with Reed TOMORROW morning at 8am PT/11am ET on the radio show.

Here’s THE LINK.

Happy Friday, friends.

When Women Get Too Ripped.

by Sean Croxton

Where does fitness end and disease begin?

The line separating the two can be a fine one and, for most, a blur. In fact, crossing this line is often perceived as admirable, even worthy of envy.

From the outside an ultra-lean, sculptured female physique may be looked upon by her peers as a body to die for. However, from the inside it may be a body she is dying for.

Okay, maybe that’s a bit of an overstatement.

Then again, maybe not.

Working as a personal trainer for eight years and then as a diet and lifestyle coach for three, I learned many lessons. The lesson I will share with you today is this:

Looks can be deceiving.

In every gym exists at least one woman rocking a bra top to show off all eight of her abs. The one who seems to be there no matter what time you go. The one who women gawk at more than the men.

My female training clients would often express envy over this woman, however unbeknownst to the damage taking place beneath the hard-bodied surface.

Looks can kill you.

Oh, there I go again…

How To Live with Cancer Like a Rock Star!


by Sean Croxton

“I live with cancer. There is nothing I can do about that, other than take care of myself. Some people, they have chemotherapy. I have kale and green juice. And that is all I will ever have.” – Kris Carr

Imagine being diagnosed with cancer.

But this isn’t just any cancer — it’s a rare, slow-moving sarcoma that accounts for only 200 diagnoses in the United States annually. Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (EHE), to be exact.

Not only is EHE rare, but there is no treatment for it. No chemo. No radiation. No remission. No cure.

You just live with it.

Kris Carr lives with EHE. When diagnosed at the age of 31, she was given ten years to live.

Ten years ago.

Did she wallow in self-pity?

Did she put her life on hold to watch the sand run through her ten-year hourglass?

Nope, she went to Whole Foods.

She traded in fast food for real food, mixed drinks for green drinks, dance clubs for bookstores.

In other words, Kris refused to perceive her diagnosis as a sentence to death but as a motive to live. Her positive attitude and passion for life has been an inspiration for so many — even the cancer-free.

If anyone can make cancer Crazy and Sexy, it’s Kris.
