How Your “Health IQ” Can Save You Money, Part 1
January 23, 2018
Health IQ is an innovative life insurance company based on the premise that healthy behaviors should be rewarded, rather than bad habits penalized, as is the norm among conventional insurers. They offer substantial premium discounts for exercisers, healthy eaters, and those who demonstrate a superior Health IQ. Their Health IQ quiz has been demonstrated to predict longevity—take the quiz here: https://www.healthiq.com/quiz. Founder and CEO Munjal Shah shares the story of his own personal health epiphany, which led him to launch Health IQ. His company’s corporate culture reflects a commitment to health advocacy. How was the Health IQ test developed and validated? What does research show about the insurability of cyclists? runners? Yoga practitioners? high-Intensity interval trainers? triathletes? weightlifters? gluten-free dieters? vegetarians? swimmers? Does it matter if you have an adverse family health history? How much can Health IQ save you on a life insurance policy? Why get a life insurance policy in the first place? If you already have a life insurance policy, does it make sense to scope out Health IQ?

Challenging Cholesterol Phobia, Part 1
January 18, 2018
Dr. David Diamond, a Ph.D. biologist and Professor of Neuroscience, is an outspoken critic of modern medicine’s obsession with lowering cholesterol. His personal experience reversing his obesity and sky-high triglycerides with a low-carb, high-fat diet led him to challenge low-fat diet orthodoxy. He contends that many of the studies justifying widespread statin use are riven with “statistical deception.” In fact, he argues, high LDL cholesterol is only minimally associated with cardiovascular risk, and is a known survival factor in senior adults. Additionally, the significant side effects of cholesterol-lowering drugs have been minimized. Click HERE for part 2.

Hidden Dangers in “Healthy” Foods, Part 1
January 16, 2018
Dr. Steven Gundry, author of "The Plant Paradox: The Hidden Dangers in 'Healthy' Foods That Cause Disease and Weight Gain," discusses how lectins from plant foods can cause physical and mental symptoms and promote obesity. As a vegetarian, he experienced high cholesterol and blood pressure and couldn’t lose weight despite a rigorous exercise program. His research led him to a new diet paradigm which enabled him to shed 70 pounds and optimize his cardiovascular risk factors. What are lectins, and how do they inflict damage on the body? Could lectins explain the “Wheat Belly” phenomenon? Why “healthy” foods like grains, beans, squash, tomatoes, potatoes, peanuts and cashews, and even chia seeds can cause harm. Why fruits can sometimes trigger disease and weight gain. Does that mean we should severely curtail our intake of plant foods? Which are permissible? Are meats, fish, eggs and poultry free of lectins? Why does the Plant Paradox Diet permit some forms of dairy? How does the supplement “Lectin Shield” mitigate the damage caused by inadvertent consumption of lectins? Click HERE for part 2.
