Wellness is a Journey

YouTube video

Continuing our smoothie episode, Chef Cat and Nurse Bridgette talk about ways to eat delicious, nutritious food as part of a sustainable plan to live healthy. Captions below.

0:00:24.080,0:00:28.480

welcome to the ascend health show i’m your 

host nick angeles and you’re so confused

0:00:28.480,0:00:33.120

right now as far as why am i drinking 

a smoothie it’s a really good one too

0:00:34.160,0:00:39.520

i’m here with chef kat and nurse bridget from a 

to z living well solutions hello and you probably

0:00:39.520,0:00:44.320

missed our last show which is where these were 

made but we thought it was such a good time

0:00:44.320,0:00:49.600

that we’ll just continue and talk about a few more 

things to run out of things to talk about so from

0:00:49.600,0:00:54.720

ascend health center where i’m one of the owners 

i’m a nurse anesthetist we deal with mental health

0:00:54.720,0:01:00.640

we have psychiatry counselors we do ketamine 

infusions sprovato which is a similar nasal spray

0:01:00.640,0:01:05.520

and also transcranial magnetic stimulation which 

right now you’re thinking well i don’t understand

0:01:05.520,0:01:12.160

what smoothies have to do with any of that but the 

idea is that of a holistic healthcare so sometimes

0:01:12.160,0:01:16.320

all you need is a smoothie and then you’re done 

and you don’t have to take pills and then other

0:01:16.320,0:01:21.360

times you do need intensive medical treatments 

until you get to the point where the nutrition

0:01:21.360,0:01:26.800

does make a quick difference in your life but 

because it requires a holistic approach and

0:01:27.680,0:01:32.560

any patient or client it’s hard to say immediately 

like oh this will fix you because we’ve all seen

0:01:32.560,0:01:38.640

those websites like the grapefruit juice or our 

special no offense to what you said in the last

0:01:38.640,0:01:44.240

episode but our special stevia blend or this or 

like this is the key and you can waste a lot of

0:01:44.240,0:01:48.800

money doing that or you can just simply narrow 

down to exactly what you need well that’s why

0:01:49.600,0:01:59.280

you need a to z living well solutions so we are 

the proud uh co-founders and owners of a to z

0:01:59.280,0:02:07.440

living well solutions we’re based in akron ohio 

and we serve all over northeast ohio with box

0:02:07.440,0:02:17.360

lunches with a healthy message and our goal in 

life at this point right is really to educator

0:02:18.000,0:02:22.880

and do you want to talk a little bit about what 

edu catering means to a to z yeah absolutely

0:02:22.880,0:02:28.400

so just to add what nick you were saying about 

it takes a team approach and obviously we have

0:02:29.200,0:02:36.000

three very unique positions here we’ve got a 

nurse next to us i’m a anti-inflammatory nurse

0:02:36.000,0:02:41.440

holistic nurse and we have chef kat here and so 

three different areas of life but they’re all

0:02:41.440,0:02:46.000

very important so we’ve got the health domain 

but then chef kat here she’s got the food

0:02:46.640,0:02:53.280

category here and they all have to work together 

and so what we do is educators education

0:02:53.280,0:03:00.400

and catering mix and we like to educate people 

on what they’re eating why they’re eating it how

0:03:00.400,0:03:05.360

to swap out harmful ingredients and get yourself 

the proper nutrition so that you can enjoy life

0:03:06.320,0:03:11.840

absolutely i remember i had a patient once who 

said you know i wasn’t depressed anymore when

0:03:11.840,0:03:17.600

they put me on geodan but i also wasn’t awake 

so i talked to the psychiatrist and i was like

0:03:17.600,0:03:20.640

i think this is cheating i’m not 

depressed i was like no no no this

0:03:20.640,0:03:25.360

you’re not suicidal this is great and sometimes 

it’s that way with our food where we’re like okay

0:03:25.360,0:03:30.720

i’m sad but i’m eating this bland food and i know 

i should be healthy and i feel that doesn’t really

0:03:30.720,0:03:36.080

count as health this very cautious like okay i’m 

doing everything i’m supposed to maybe i’ll live

0:03:36.080,0:03:42.240

for a long sad life like that’s not the goal of 

anything no no no no you want vitality you want

0:03:42.240,0:03:49.440

longevity and a lot of foods actually when you sit 

down with the right intentions as i like to say

0:03:49.440,0:03:56.320

and you produce a meal there’s so many emotions 

that go into it and you should have an experience

0:03:56.320,0:04:01.680

when you’re cooking or when you go out to eat and 

such and that’s why i think that being connected

0:04:01.680,0:04:07.680

to your food in some way is really important so 

we kind of say give professional tips we call

0:04:07.680,0:04:15.520

them pro tips but basically a lot of those pro 

tips are focusing on how to live your best life

0:04:15.520,0:04:24.240

while eating a meal while preparing the meal while 

even at work if you go out for lunch and you come

0:04:24.240,0:04:33.120

back really slow your employer’s not going to 

be too happy either so we really um we cater to

0:04:33.120,0:04:40.560

corporations schools and institutions and we 

really bring them healthy food but not like

0:04:41.760,0:04:46.720

we’re not giving you celery sticks and calling it 

a day we don’t call it granola crunchy you know

0:04:46.720,0:04:53.600

some people call like that we we call it really 

restaurant quality food that makes you crave and

0:04:53.600,0:05:00.720

enjoy it but also when you’re done eating it we 

consider that as food as fuel so yeah we want you

0:05:00.720,0:05:06.240

to feel energized from the food that you’re 

eating and uh we’re choosing specific menus

0:05:06.240,0:05:11.120

designed to give you the maximum nutrition but 

also to give you the most bold flavors and that’s

0:05:11.120,0:05:16.080

where chef cat really shines so does it need 

to be a subtle change or for example i think

0:05:16.640,0:05:20.560

during the obama years where they change the 

school lunches and that was like a bunch of kids

0:05:20.560,0:05:26.560

threw away peaches like that was what happened 

but at the same time if you’re giving a similar

0:05:27.200,0:05:30.960

if it’s a similar food it’s just healthier 

ingredients is that like a better segue or

0:05:30.960,0:05:37.360

yes i would completely agree our whole premise 

is that we know people like eating comfort foods

0:05:37.360,0:05:42.080

you know there are people enjoy chocolate 

smoothies like the banana smoothie you’re eating

0:05:42.080,0:05:47.600

but we just want to swap out different ingredients 

like instead of adding um you know chocolate and

0:05:47.600,0:05:51.520

sugar and chocolate syrup and stuff like 

that we’re going to add a dandelion blend

0:05:51.520,0:05:56.640

that gives a cocoa mocha flavor but you’re 

gonna get all these nutritional values added

0:05:57.200,0:06:01.680

and not have all that extra sugar and it’s also 

energizing like when i’ve had dandelion mochas

0:06:01.680,0:06:06.640

like i’m sure some of it’s a placebo effect where 

it smells like coffee tastes like coffee oh i feel

0:06:06.640,0:06:12.080

the caffeine yeah but it is almost a different 

kind of plant energy where you just feel your

0:06:12.080,0:06:16.640

cells working a little bit better exactly exactly 

plus there’s that whole like pat yourself on the

0:06:16.640,0:06:20.960

back like right you did a really good job for 

drinking that smoothie but is there a limit to

0:06:20.960,0:06:25.280

that too i know we’ve talked about this before 

bridgette of where people get so intense into

0:06:25.280,0:06:31.360

their health yes that i think our last discussion 

is because i just listened to it again yesterday

0:06:31.360,0:06:35.600

and we made the point of like that person at 

the party who’s eating the kale chips that’s

0:06:35.600,0:06:41.920

what i was thinking all along like in the corner 

by themselves eating those celery sticks and

0:06:41.920,0:06:45.280

they feel good and they’re proud of themselves 

but like everyone around them is like i don’t

0:06:45.280,0:06:50.160

understand what’s happening here yeah yeah now 

we want to give a good balance between the two

0:06:50.160,0:06:53.840

extremes because we don’t want you eating 

processed foods all day long every day

0:06:53.840,0:06:59.440

because that’s your body’s going to turn into 

a donut basically but we don’t want you sitting

0:06:59.440,0:07:04.080

in the corner by yourself eating a celery stick 

and segregating yourself because they’re eating

0:07:04.080,0:07:10.080

processed foods so that’s where we like to bridge 

the gap between health and food i was going to say

0:07:10.080,0:07:15.520

wealth but that’s wealth is it’s energy i think 

it’s intertwined because when you feel good

0:07:15.520,0:07:22.480

you just have a stature about yourself you have 

confidence and such and so um we have some things

0:07:22.480,0:07:28.080

that we’ve established in our business called 

guiding wellness principles and those kind of just

0:07:28.080,0:07:35.520

bring us back to what what are we really after 

here and one of our guiding wellness principles is

0:07:36.480,0:07:42.240

understanding what is the sad diet and we want 

to lead you to glad okay so that’s why i said

0:07:42.240,0:07:47.280

health and wealth it’s all about rhyming a to z 

you know we’re really trying to get and i’m like

0:07:47.280,0:07:51.280

with it here you know there you go we’ll just do 

limericks like straight limericks for everything

0:07:52.000,0:07:59.120

so so anyways we um we really try and show people 

you know we’re you’re above average you’re more

0:07:59.120,0:08:05.920

than standard so you should eat above standards 

and the standard american diet for a long time has

0:08:05.920,0:08:15.120

given a disconstrued way of picking out what 

are the best foods for your body and i like

0:08:15.120,0:08:21.360

to think that everybody’s body is different 

and so we use the sad and then we go to glad

0:08:21.360,0:08:28.560

and the glad diet is really just about focusing 

on good ample nutritious foods and we go through

0:08:28.560,0:08:32.960

that with all of our clients but i’d love 

to invite them to visit our website perhaps

0:08:32.960,0:08:38.720

that would be a great way to get in touch with 

us yeah it’s a2zlivingwell.com correct yes

0:08:47.120,0:08:50.960

from health to wealth what if they say well 

what about my wealth like do i need to give

0:08:50.960,0:08:54.880

up all my wealth so i can eat healthy because 

that’s obviously a concern a lot of people have

0:08:55.440,0:09:00.400

like i just can’t afford it gas prices are up 

my broccoli costs too much so what do you say

0:09:02.480,0:09:07.840

well one of our most famous things that we used to 

say is you’re going to spend it now on your food

0:09:07.840,0:09:12.640

or you’re going to spend it later in a hospital 

bed oh so you’re saying that they can see me in

0:09:12.640,0:09:18.720

a little bit or they can visit you now right okay 

yeah that makes sense i think there’s everybody’s

0:09:18.720,0:09:25.840

got a place okay so there are times that people 

will need certain services health-wise but if you

0:09:25.840,0:09:32.800

could grab rain and control of your health from uh 

even wherever you’re at we meet you where you’re

0:09:32.800,0:09:39.200

at to say hey are you drinking only soda every 

single day well let’s start incorporating some

0:09:39.200,0:09:47.520

really good filtered water are you snacking after 

midnight well how about you eat like the way that

0:09:48.080,0:09:53.440

you eat very heavy in the morning lighter at 

lunch and then even lighter at dinner time so your

0:09:53.440,0:10:00.000

digestion track has a way to catch up some people 

choose different ways to um do the intermittent

0:10:00.000,0:10:06.320

fasting and such so there’s various approaches 

to health but it’s just starting one step in the

0:10:06.320,0:10:12.320

at a time and that’s the key is that we we don’t 

expect everybody to change everything immediately

0:10:12.320,0:10:18.320

clear out their cupboards you know go go crazy 

and only buy organic and non-gmo everything

0:10:18.320,0:10:24.400

now that’s that’s later in the future and you 

know even if you if you even get there but

0:10:24.400,0:10:28.560

just like chef cat is saying you know let’s 

start with the most basics what’s your main

0:10:29.120,0:10:35.040

source of water is it pop is that how you get your 

water in can we switch that can you start drinking

0:10:35.600,0:10:41.440

more water and maybe one pop a week or something 

like that and so chef cat mentioning the small

0:10:41.440,0:10:45.520

steps in the right direction are eventually you’re 

going to stack on those small steps and you’re

0:10:45.520,0:10:51.040

going to have a big result and also to add to your 

um you know discussion with the health and the

0:10:51.040,0:10:57.840

wealth you know chef cat in the episode previous 

was mentioning about the um the abundance of our

0:10:57.840,0:11:03.440

land that we have we’re coming into the springtime 

and the summer time and there’s farmers markets

0:11:03.440,0:11:08.240

there’s local farms driving around you 

know in in wadsworth i know there’s some

0:11:08.240,0:11:14.880

farms around here you pick uh berries and fruits 

and things like that so sometimes you’ll be able

0:11:14.880,0:11:19.040

to get them cheaper buy them in bulk right and 

you’re also saying it’s not inevitable like

0:11:19.760,0:11:23.280

you don’t have to start on this journey then at 

some point you’re going to be like what’s what’s

0:11:23.280,0:11:27.200

the name of those of those pumpkin seeds if they 

don’t have individual names i’m not interested

0:11:27.200,0:11:34.080

yet if we listen to our bodies we can know okay 

this is enough for now or this is because that’s

0:11:34.080,0:11:39.120

what i think is the most fascinating about diets 

there’s so many ideas but you simply have to even

0:11:39.120,0:11:43.600

if something resonates with your brain your body 

might say you know what this isn’t working for me

0:11:43.600,0:11:49.200

sorry and then you have to no matter how how 

much you’re like this is a philosophy that i

0:11:49.200,0:11:53.600

really like that it really makes sense for my body 

right if we pay attention to our bodies that’s

0:11:53.600,0:11:58.160

where we can tell like no this isn’t working for 

me well you’re greek right it’s all greek to me

0:11:59.520,0:12:05.280

the greek word for diet is dieta and the true 

meaning of that where it originally intended

0:12:05.280,0:12:12.080

was lifestyle and so that’s what we try and 

really share about is how to take hold of your

0:12:12.080,0:12:19.200

lifestyle not just monday morning manchester 

you know it’s it’s about uh understanding that

0:12:20.000,0:12:26.160

there’s a lot of days in the week seven maybe 

some say and um i don’t know why i said that but

0:12:26.160,0:12:32.480

you know there’s people don’t like mondays yes 

they don’t really count i can’t mondays but um

0:12:32.480,0:12:39.040

with every day that ends in y we’ll say it that 

way there’s an opportunity to make a good choice

0:12:39.040,0:12:44.400

so it’s not you know it’s great when you get on 

a program and you want to clean some things out

0:12:44.400,0:12:49.520

and you want to call nurse bridgette or hopefully 

it’s before you get to nick but he’s a good segue

0:12:50.640,0:12:57.200

it’s about really living with intention every day 

so if you want to have that special treat on that

0:12:57.200,0:13:05.440

one day there’s still three other meals mostly uh 

to choose a better option as the day progresses so

0:13:05.440,0:13:11.680

the more you kind of attack not a diet is just so 

regiment although there’s times and places for it

0:13:12.320,0:13:18.720

it’s really great to understand that diet means 

lifestyle and how are you choosing to live one

0:13:18.720,0:13:23.520

bite at a time right no that makes sense because 

greek italian cultures they are like let’s eat

0:13:23.520,0:13:27.600

a lot let’s eat together yeah someone will be 

offended if you don’t eat all this food right and

0:13:27.600,0:13:32.400

so if you start cooking a bit more healthy then 

you can kind of get into that without because i

0:13:32.400,0:13:36.720

know my parents they get confused because let’s 

say i gained weight and they’re like don’t eat

0:13:36.720,0:13:40.400

that much but but our culture says you need to 

eat a lot so it was just a really funny thing

0:13:40.400,0:13:45.760

to watch where they wanted us to eat all this 

food but also not eat all this food yeah yeah

0:13:45.760,0:13:53.200

it’s that monitoring that daily balance i guess 

right so no that makes a lot of sense for sure

0:13:53.200,0:13:59.600

and working through the confusion you know to also 

understand that every second that you everything

0:13:59.600,0:14:04.560

that you put to your mouth you know smoothie it’s 

good smoothie very good that’s a choice that i’m

0:14:04.560,0:14:10.160

making and i’m choosing to eat this right now 

and i could choose you know on the earlier show

0:14:10.160,0:14:15.120

i could choose to drink this sugar water that 

says cranberry juice on it or i could choose to

0:14:15.680,0:14:22.800

get my sweets from fruits you know so every single 

uh meal that you have is a choice every drink that

0:14:22.800,0:14:29.200

you have is a choice and maybe you know you 

make three not so great choices but then you

0:14:29.200,0:14:35.600

make three better choices so i mean are you where 

you at in that and probably eating with intention

0:14:35.600,0:14:40.720

with mindfulness can start with a smoothie yeah 

because a lot of times there’s plenty of research

0:14:40.720,0:14:46.640

that if you slow down when you eat when you really 

pause and like the food itself is more nutritious

0:14:46.640,0:14:51.680

but you can’t go from eating mcdonald’s to like 

well why don’t you bake yourself some shepherd’s

0:14:51.680,0:14:57.520

pie and really think about each bite so a smoothie 

is a really good transition for those five minutes

0:14:57.520,0:15:01.520

you’ll have that okay i’m paying attention to 

this and then slowly you can grow into more

0:15:01.520,0:15:07.760

right right right yes yes that’s you know 

okay so i have a funny story now so um

0:15:08.640,0:15:14.960

it’s i i grew up on fast food i’m not gonna lie 

that’s that’s pretty much all my parents fed me

0:15:14.960,0:15:19.440

uh they’re wonderful parents i love them very much 

but that’s what they knew to feed me right and it

0:15:19.440,0:15:27.280

was quick and easy and so i remember going to um 

a fast food place with my dad and he got his food

0:15:27.280,0:15:33.360

and we’re pulling out the parking lot and he’s 

already got the wrapper ripped open and like the

0:15:33.360,0:15:40.000

it was it was a taco and the taco is gone within 

like two minutes of getting it in the car and i

0:15:40.000,0:15:46.320

remember like looking at my dad like wow you 

really ate that fast um why’d you eat that so

0:15:46.320,0:15:52.640

fast and he’s like well if i don’t eat it fast it 

doesn’t taste good and that i mean i was a little

0:15:52.640,0:15:58.480

girl when he said that and that stuck with me like 

why do we have to scarf down our food right for it

0:15:58.480,0:16:03.840

to taste good when we can sit here and savor 

certain things and really enjoy each flavor

0:16:03.840,0:16:08.560

correct you know our tongue knows quality right 

if you really give it a chance to think about what

0:16:08.560,0:16:12.480

it’s eating so then the mindfulness doesn’t work 

if you’re eating something terrible because then

0:16:12.480,0:16:19.600

your brain’s like wait what are we doing yeah why 

am i eating this nasty tasting thing i can eat a

0:16:19.600,0:16:24.160

lot so i know you guys were really nice with brand 

names and all that but i won’t be so i went to

0:16:24.160,0:16:28.960

ihop because they had this great pancake all 

you can eat special yeah and literally about

0:16:28.960,0:16:35.840

i don’t know 20 pancakes in or something my 

body almost oddly was like we’re done here

0:16:38.320,0:16:41.600

i’ve got room for one more 

pancake but it was almost an

0:16:41.600,0:16:46.480

audible voice of like no we’re done 

you are done this is god’s peace

0:16:49.280,0:16:55.040

is that is that my cholesterol like what’s going 

on here well it’s about balance right that’s super

0:16:55.040,0:17:01.440

brown yeah but it’s challenging too because a lot 

of times like i i’m sharing with you bridget how i

0:17:01.440,0:17:06.400

did a study on all the ensure and those kind of 

protein drinks and now even in surgeries we’ll

0:17:06.400,0:17:11.120

give them pre-operative patients and the patients 

do great instead of going eight or twelve hours

0:17:11.120,0:17:15.520

without anything to eat or drink before surgery 

they better wound healing they don’t need as much

0:17:15.520,0:17:20.880

pain medicine and some it doesn’t even make sense 

but it it is well this is what the body uses for

0:17:20.880,0:17:25.680

fuel it’s food and if you don’t have it you’re 

not going to heal as quickly right but then even

0:17:25.680,0:17:31.360

if you know modified corn proteins can do that for 

us imagine if you actually spent the time to make

0:17:31.360,0:17:36.880

something like this yeah you give your body real 

raw nutrition right and for some people that is

0:17:36.880,0:17:42.720

like a first step of okay let me have a nutrition 

drink but then it’s that is one where you can’t

0:17:42.720,0:17:47.600

really stop there yeah what i said earlier about 

i think people are more willing to start if they

0:17:47.600,0:17:52.160

realize okay there’s not some destination we’re 

all saying like look i know that cauliflower

0:17:52.160,0:17:56.640

is on sale it’s a really good deal but i better 

get the organic one instead yeah i think if you

0:17:56.640,0:18:02.000

have more flexibility yes one of our mentors 

says health is a journey not a destination

0:18:02.000,0:18:07.920

and i think that’s important to keep in mind is 

that you’re really it’s just a day-by-day thing

0:18:09.840,0:18:14.960

absolutely so if people want to reach you they can 

go to your website correct and oh i did have one

0:18:14.960,0:18:20.080

question from the last episode you had mentioned 

how you can freeze foods individually yes

0:18:20.080,0:18:24.000

everyone’s confused right now but this whole 

all the show is is me trying to learn things

0:18:24.640,0:18:30.160

so do take like we’re really here for you it 

really it’s it’s nick’s show which is really

0:18:30.160,0:18:34.800

embarrassing since i showed up late for the last 

one but anyway so do you take like the blueberries

0:18:34.800,0:18:39.680

individually or like how individual are you 

talking about this the blueberries individually

0:18:39.680,0:18:43.920

you put them on just like single layer just 

a single layer that makes sense yes and then

0:18:43.920,0:18:48.640

once they’re frozen you can do whatever you want 

then once they’re frozen they’ll just pop right

0:18:48.640,0:18:55.440

off and start putting them in bags i use a lot of 

little parchment layers so i can you know it kind

0:18:55.440,0:19:01.840

of prevents them from clumping once they’re in the 

freezer right so mm-hmm i have a youtube video i’m

0:19:01.840,0:19:05.440

gonna have to watch it because yeah unfortunately 

i’m the opposite where sometimes i’m like well

0:19:05.440,0:19:09.840

i guess i should take this fork out of the 

tupperware before i toss this in this yeah

0:19:12.320,0:19:18.960

and our youtube page definitely has some tips 

that are just sometimes silly and fun that is

0:19:18.960,0:19:24.080

you know just cooking at home how you can 

become faster how you can become more efficient

0:19:24.080,0:19:30.000

and have of course tasty food absolutely and then

0:19:36.560,0:19:41.840

and we treat a lot of anxiety depression 

we do some pain management on opioids and

0:19:41.840,0:19:46.560

really we’re good for a lot of those confusing 

disorders where you’re not really sure what it is

0:19:46.560,0:19:51.600

migraines fibromyalgia even some long coveted sort 

of issues because that’s a lot of what happens

0:19:51.600,0:19:56.880

when you aren’t eating the right foods your body 

is unsure what messages to send yes you can’t even

0:19:56.880,0:20:00.640

tell what your symptoms are so we’ve we have 

a lot of patients i’ve been to six seven eight

0:20:00.640,0:20:05.200

different specialists and they’ll tell me like oh 

it’s all covered by insurance it’s like well it’s

0:20:05.200,0:20:09.200

partially covered it’s basically like a 

really bad groupon is what’s happened here

0:20:10.880,0:20:15.040

that’s real funny and so but and so that’s 

why it makes sense to find substitutes to

0:20:15.040,0:20:19.040

eat healthy because no matter what’s wrong with 

you you know it’s gonna start getting better as

0:20:19.040,0:20:23.520

you eat yeah right even if it’s subtle and you 

still need some other source of medical treatment

0:20:23.520,0:20:28.720

you know that you know sugar and simple 

carbohydrates and the wrong kinds of fat are

0:20:28.720,0:20:34.720

not going to help you so well speaking of that i’m 

sure you’ve seen non-alcoholic fatty liver disease

0:20:35.760,0:20:42.720

that is something really curious that’s becoming 

more and more problematic right and non-alcoholic

0:20:42.720,0:20:48.800

fatty liver disease for those of us who may not 

know is basically the liver is turning into fat

0:20:49.360,0:20:54.080

right it’s getting clogged up turning fat 

typically we saw that with just alcohol use

0:20:54.640,0:20:57.760

but now we’re seeing it with the processed foods

0:20:58.320,0:21:03.440

and um you know that’s that’s something that we 

have to be aware of that if we’re eating too much

0:21:03.440,0:21:08.400

sugar in general organs could be shutting down 

because of what we’re eating right you know and

0:21:10.080,0:21:15.040

yes you’re going to help with things that we 

don’t know what’s happening but also you know

0:21:15.040,0:21:19.600

every single food option that you’re eating is 

fuel for that body that you’re feeding you know

0:21:19.600,0:21:24.000

absolutely food is medicine and you’re right 

because i work in a lot of gi places and it’s

0:21:24.000,0:21:28.560

almost an epidemic at this point yeah where 

it’s simply like because it used to be when

0:21:28.560,0:21:32.720

people in holistic medicine used to talk about 

detoxifying and we got to support your liver

0:21:32.720,0:21:37.040

that the usual medical response was like this 

is ridiculous your liver takes care of all this

0:21:37.040,0:21:41.200

but that’s a case where your liver is like no 

actually i can’t yeah it’s getting overburdened

0:21:41.200,0:21:45.040

right and i remember the first time seeing 

non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in the

0:21:45.040,0:21:53.520

clinical practice and it was a 30 year old 

man he was a police officer and i was like

0:21:53.520,0:21:57.120

are you sure you’re not drinking like are you sure 

there’s something that you’re not telling me about

0:21:57.120,0:22:02.320

i did the same thing like like i didn’t believe it 

like yeah like he’s just like and he he’s like no

0:22:02.320,0:22:07.520

i swear i don’t drink alcohol and i’m like okay 

i can really think about this here because i’m

0:22:07.520,0:22:13.360

seeing an alcoholic liver but as we’re finding out 

it is more problematic and people really do have

0:22:13.360,0:22:18.880

to pay attention to what they’re eating absolutely 

and starting with a smoothie is good good option

0:22:18.880,0:22:22.160

well i think this is a good time to end the 

show because i’m almost done with my smoothie

0:22:22.160,0:22:25.840

i’ve been drinking it i better say this whole 

time just so i won’t get it taken away from it

0:22:27.680,0:22:32.400
