Supplements Everyone Should Have In Their Cabinet | Shawn Wells
Episode of
The Art Of Living with Kathy Smith
Today, we're talking about vitamins. It might have started with chewable Flintstones that your mom gave you as a kid, then in college it was vitamin infused water, and now there is an edgier and somewhat controversial method called vitamin vaping. Although the delivery systems might have changed through the years, this idea of supplementing your diet with vitamins has been something that’s been part of our lifestyle since the time we were little ones. So the question is: Do we even need to take vitamins? We know that taking vitamins and minerals is never going to justify less-than-healthy eating habits. But, there’s growing evidence that the right supplements can improve your health and vitality, including maintaining bone density and muscle mass, improving brain function and mental clarity, balancing hormones and rejuvenating skin, hair and nails. One trip down the vitamin aisle and you’re bombarded with hundreds of options, and some with outrageous claims. That can cause decision fatigue and opting out of adding any of the supplements to your cart. So, if your head starts to spin when you start to talk about vitamins, welcome to the club! But that’s all about to change because today’s guest Shawn Wells is here to clarify the confusion and simplify a conversation that can tend to be very complicated. Shawn has a divergent background. He is a Registered Dietitian with a decade of experience as a Chief Clinical Dietitian in hospitals and skilled nursing facilities. He is also a Certified Sports Nutritionist and has worked with celebrity clients and professional athletes. All of this experience combined with his extensive background in formulating supplements for big companies converge to make him the world’s greatest formulator.
Osteoporosis in Women: Bone Strengthening Guidelines | Dr. John Jaquish
Episode of
The Art Of Living with Kathy Smith
Aging comes subtly. Sometimes, the changes might feel like joint stiffness in your hip or shoulder, or sometimes the signs are stooping posture, increasing belly fat and loss of muscle mass... those changes are easy to see and feel. Yet other changes are completely hidden. I hear over and over again from my friends and listeners that after their annual bone-density scan, they’ve been diagnosed with thinning bones. It’s expected that by 2020, half of all American men and women over the age of 50 will have, or will be at risk of developing osteoporosis of the hip... and even more will be at risk of developing it elsewhere. What if I told you that you can increase your bone density and actually reverse bone loss with a technique that requires only 10 minutes a week. Are you listening now? It seems unbelievable! Make sure you listen to this show all the way to the end, because today’s guest Dr. John Jaquish has developed a device that’s placed in over 300 clinics worldwide. These clinics, called Osteostrong, focus on osteogenic loading (which basically means putting strain on the bone that applies enough impact or pressure to stimulate new bone growth). It has now helped over 30,000 individuals with their bone health. We have a lot to cover and we're lucky to have Dr. Jaquish here to help us. He is an inventor, author, and scientist, and stumbled upon his life’s mission to promote bone health after his mother was diagnosed with osteoporosis. He is currently advancing osteogenic loading research and speaking worldwide, as well as developing other biotechnology devices and products that will aid in the advanced health and wellbeing of people all around the world.

Are Stem Cells The Future of Medicine?
Episode of
The Art Of Living with Kathy Smith
Imagine being able to take cells and use them to cure all kinds of ailments - from diabetes to heart disease to macular degeneration. All across the world, scientists have begun clinical trials to try and do just that, by making use of the incredible power and versatility of stem cells. Today’s guest, Dr. Amy Killen, is at the forefront of this movement with her revolutionary work with cosmetic stem cells to create youthful, healthy, glowing skin...also  to stimulate hair to move from the inactive “resting” phase to the active “growing” phase….. and she also works with sexual revitalization for both men and women. Stem cells help heal tissues. Whenever you have some kind of injury, stem cells target those damaged tissues and release a rich mixture of growth factors to trigger the healing. With age, stem cells start to poop out, and you don’t heal as quickly. And this happens to every tissue in our body. Trying to boost the impact of your own stem cells has captured the attention of the medical community. Dr. Killen talks with us about the latest research and advancements in the field. Dr. Amy Killen works at Docere Medical in Park City, Utah, where along with Dr. Harry Adelson they have built a reputation for regenerative optimization medicine.
