Hey, there! It’s Dr. Justin Marchegiani, welcome back to Beyond Wellness Radio. Today, we have an awesome guest, Wendy Myers straight from Malibu, California, so we’re really excited to have Wendy on. We’re thinking about, talking about detox, and coffee enemas and infrared saunas and who knows what else would come up, so Wendy, welcome to the show!
Wendy Myers: Thank you so much for having me.
Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Awesome! Well, tell me a little bit about on how you got into the functional medicine world, I know you have a blog yourself, ah… liveto110.com which is really cool, because – I mean why live to a hundred, when you can live to a hundred and ten, right?
Wendy Myers: Exactly, Hahaha! We know I got into health, ah – just because I was planning my pregnancy and I realized I needed to start eating healthier, and you know nourishing my body. And you know, couple of years later – you know, studying, I finally had my child, got pregnant and then I had clean up my toxic environment! You know when you have a baby, you can’t use regular cleaners and then had never really thought about that before that I have toxic chemicals all over my house, and you know, you had to clean all your beauty products and I realized I had a lot of work to do with detoxing my home.
Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Yeah!
Wendy Myers: And then my Father, unfortunately, got diagnosed with esophageal cancer, and he lived in Austin, Texas and he passed away within about six months of his cancer treatments and he was on about ten medications, so obviously, not – something not normal about that. And ah – I just really sought to find the answers to why everyone is so sick, why are one in two people, you know, developing cancer and our immunizes-es and in other so many health issues people are having. And so I eventually concluded through all my research and writing on liveto110.com that it's a mineral and nutrient deficiencies and heavy metal and chemical toxicities that are the underlying cause of disease. So, my mission is to educate people about that, and help them heal their health conditions naturally.
Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Hmmm… that's great! How important is it for the gut? Because I see so many patients, they come in, they're eating good, they're all ready on really good stuff invitation but then, you know, we look and they're still really nutrient deficient however you wanna test that, whether its' spectra cell, on organic or nutrient eval, we see lots of nutrient deficiencies. How important is the gut and how do you, how do you implement healing the gut with your programs?
Wendy Myers: Yes, well it's a – the gut of course is the foundation of your health. If you don't have a healthy gut, you can't absorb nutrients and even if you have a healthy gut, everyone's ah – mineral nutrient deficient anyways because the food is deficient, the soil is deficient, it's been eroded. So, even if you eat a perfect diet, you have to supplement minerals and nutrients for the rest of your life. There's just no way around that the key plan to be healthy – but as far as the gut, I have the same thing with my clients, you know, over half of my clients have some measure of gut dysfunction of, you know, the border belly has been blunted ah – you know, they have leaky guts and many food sensitivities and all the – all the things related to an unhealthy gut, not to mention parasitic bacterial or yeast candida infections. And, so I definitely warn for the clients you can pretty much pick up on it with symptoms, you know, you get a hands on symptomatology gut dysfunction, constipation, diarrhea that I can do testing on them, but I like to do organic acids testing, the gut bug who test hahaha! And to see, where all those bacteria and things in their body are popping out. Gonna tell you what's going on inside them.
Dr. Justin Marchegiani: That's really cool! Very good! So, you talked about gut infections and parasites, what are the big infections that you're seeing with your patients?
Wendy Myers: Uhm- of course candida.
Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Yeah!
Wendy Myers: Candida's the biggest problem because, you know, you know parasites are opportunistic and as someone's health begins to decline they develops adrenal fatigue and then these are feeling fatigued wants – stimulants and then you know, they just have this downward decline and as the host becomes weaker and weaker, then parasites and yeast starts to take hold, H. pylori. H. pylori is very common and Candida as well, and you know various parasites, but ah – you know, as those begin to take hold then the – the person becomes sicker and sicker and sicker, and develops more more problems. But, you know, like I said, these parasites are opportunistic, so as long as you keep your body strong, people then do not have this much of a problem. Their immune system can find out these bugs but, what I'm finding is because people are so nutrient deficient, their immune systems are deficient in weekend. They – they're just ah – they're very good hosts, they're very tasty hahaha!
Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Right! Right, right! And you mention about a lot of minerals. Amino minerals are really important. They're like activators for our – for ourselves, so can you give me like your favorite three to five minerals and I get – they're all important that you need them you know, synergistically, but what are your big three to five?
Wendy Myers: Well, my favorite one, I think the most important one is magnesium.
Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Of course, yeah!
Wendy Myers: And that's it, for you know, over 3700 processes in the body we're finding more everyday.
Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Shit, That many now! I thought it was like 300.
Wendy Myers: No, it's 3700.
Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Oh my gosh!
Wendy Myers: Yeah! Yeah! I'm good friends of Morley Robbins, he's a magnesium man.
Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Yeah Morley!
Wendy Myers: And as is 3700, yeah today.
Dr. Justin Marchegiani: 3700!
Wendy Myers: Yeah, I'm sure there's a billion hahaha!
Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Wow!
Wendy Myers: But ah, that's only ones we know about! But ah – I'd really like to give that – my clients multiple forms of magnesium. My favorite one's magnesium glycinate because that raises RBC magnesium.
Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Hold on one second, I guarantee I'm gonna guess your second favorite.
Wendy Myers: What?
Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Magnesium alloy.
