"And wellness. I'm Shelby Olsen. I'm a licensed nutritionist. With a bachelor's degree in exercise science and a masters degree in clinical nutrition and I understand that education is really important when it comes to talking about human health and nutrition. And of course I learned lots of things about nutrition and health while I was completing my master's degree. But to be honest with you as a practicing nutritionist with nutritional weight and wellness. I feel like I've learned even more so much of that. Clinical experience working with clients helping people feel their best. You know they always talk about education's great you learn lots of good things but when you're out in the real world working with people that's really where you've got to use those problem solving skills you really have to understand what is going to make a big difference here for people. We don't WanNa talk about theories we WANNA talk about action step so theresa and I are tasked this morning with talking about how those of you can change your digestive health so our topic is all things related to digestion have digestive problems. You certainly are not alone. According to a survey in the Journal of gastroenterology seventy four percent of the US population has some type of Gi symptoms and Gi gastrointestinal symptoms. That could be things like heartburn or acid reflux that could be abdominal pain or nausea. And of course that could be bloating gas diarrhea and constipation. You Know Teresa when I was in my first year of my master's program one of my professors said to me. You know if you're not comfortable asking people about their poop you're in the wrong profession. Isn't that or digestive. Problems are a common reason. People make an appointment with a traditional or a Dietitian. You know three so. I know you're busy in the office. Always but I'm sure you have clients that are in their eighties or ninety S. I'm sure you work with kids as well. You know we see that people can have digestive problems regardless of their age in fact we were talking before we came in that. There's a nutrition educator with nutritional weight and wellness who is a physical therapist and specializes in helping kids with chronic and very severe constipation. And I was KINDA SURPRISED TO LEARN. That parents are flying in all over to get help with constipation. Whether it's some some nutrition help some physical therapy help as you might imagine. Childhood Constipation is not very enjoyable for parents. Oh you feel your paying exactly so when we think about constipation. Oftentimes we're thinking about processed foods. Excess sugar were really looking at. What could be that foundation of creating that slow digestion or creating more of that painful Experience so another culprit that I think is often linked to constipation in children cheese sticks. And we're going to talk a little bit more about foods that are more challenging for the digestive tract but cheeses often constipated for both children and adults so think about the foods. Kids eat MAC and cheese pizza. Maybe snacking on crackers and cheese or those sorts of things they can be really challenging for those little belly's to digest. Yeah those are the foods that I think are very common. That kids are eating right now. Just because they're they're easy to eat first of all. I mean as far as just the mechanics of eating them right and then Yeah I mean. They're very convenient for parents to give their kids to right so parents. If you're listening you do have a child or you. As an adult or struggling with constipation or other tummy. Troubles are tasked today. Theresa and I are really hoping to address what helps with good gut health. And what may happen? If you don't have that right balance in the intestinal tract now it may surprise some of you listening to learn that your gut is even connected to your brain. We talked about that gut brain connection now. You heard her voice Joining me in studio this morning is our co host Teresa Wagner. I would say First and foremost she's a mom that's where she's spending a lot of time but we also get her a few days a week to in our offices and of course on the show so theresa you're a registered and licensed Dietitian. And how long have you been practicing? I think I've been a nutritional weight and wellness for five years. Maybe it's six. Yeah this they time flies when you're having fun so you must be fine now at one time. Teresa you and I were talking a little bit more as Nutritionists Dietitians. We experienced some of these things too. And I think you've kind of shared you've had some day just of issues before so hopefully you can kind of bring us into some of that discussion. Yes and maybe before we discuss that and before we discuss heartburn diarrhea constipation. Ibs I want to talk about how your immune function is connected to your Gut Hill. So not just the brain but also the immune system. Yes everything's connected. Isn't it approximately seventy percent of your immune system is found in your digestive system and because of Cova Nineteen? Many of us are trying to do everything. Possible in order to have good immune function Have you thought about your gut health and how it affects your immune function and I know shelby you have for the listeners out there have you made that connection. It's interesting to realize that throughout your life your immune system has been shaped by the communities of bacteria that reside in an on your body. How you were fed as a baby is a very important part digestive health And it's important for your current digestive function so how you were fed as an infant affects your current health right. Breast Milk provided for those of you who are breastfed and abundance of beneficial bacteria. And if you were breastfed you may have missed out on some of the those most protective bacteria from your intestinal track And now as a mom when I hear that I know of so many moms who tried breastfeeding and forever. Whatever reason it just didn't work out so this isn't necessarily meant to be a guilt trip but what it is or it's not at all meant to be a guilt trip but What it is just really good information for you to know for your children or you're having digestive issues Or the prevention of digestive issues or chronic illnesses right and there's also really good information for us as adults who maybe when we were being raised or when our parents were feeding us that it wasn't maybe breastfeeding wasn't in vogue at the time or our mothers weren't able to breastfeed at that time just as good information to have. I agree and I often tell people you know. I know I wasn't breastfed as a baby. And when I talked to some of my clients and ask them. It's it's an interesting reaction they while I had never thought of that. Does that really affect my immune system or you know that sort of stuff now and I tell them well you know. We can't travel back in the past and we're not going to blame and shame mom for what she didn't know at the time but that also gives like for me personally. That gave me really good reason to focus on reestablishing that good bacteria. Because I know I wasn't exposed to that beneficial bacteria through breast milk. Yeah good information right Some babies who are breastfed have a higher proportion of that beneficial bacteria that protects them against pathogens Certain diseases are often linked to an unhealthy. Good which may not contain adequate levels of that beneficial bacteria that bacteria. That's crucial for good digestion. Which we're talking about today exactly and in fact Teresa when we're talking about bacteria we're starting to see the bad bacteria has been connected as one of the primary causes of ulcers specifically those peptic ulcers. So yes I said bad. Bacteria causes ulcers not stress and not spicy foods for one hundred years or more Doctors and researchers believed that ulcers were related to stress and spicy foods. You know but it wasn't until two thousand five that Nobel Prize winners in medicine Dr Barry Marshall and Dr Robin Warren made that connection between ulcers and a type of bacteria called heliotrope actor Pylori. Sometimes you guys have heard of that as H. Pylori You know in the past. People who are suffering from ulcers. They were told that they had high levels of stomach acid and they needed to reduce their stress to reduce that pain and inflammation. No but now that we know that ulcers are connected to H. Pylori We can look at restoring that bacterial balance researchers proved that were not caused by stress but instead by that bad bacteria now we understand the past. The Standard Treatment for ulcers was to rest. And maybe drink some cream or some buttermilk. You know so. That sort of stuff may have felt good but it didn't actually eliminate the bad bacteria that h pylori from the guts. And I know Theresa. We'd definitely want to talk a little bit more about you know if people are struggling with ulcers we've got some some ideas for them but we're GONNA take our speak if you're just tuning in this morning. You are listening to dishing up nutrition brought to you by nutritional weight and wellness now this morning theresa and I were looking at the root cause for many of those digestive issues that you may be dealing with. If you're struggling with acid reflux or heartburn if you're struggling with gas or bloating definitely stick with us this morning. One thing that you want to consider is alcohol research from the National Institutes of Health reports. That alcohol can cause inflammation in the gut and lead to future cancers. Maybe liver disease and even some neurological problems. So we'll be right back. Welcome back to dishing up nutrition.

back in the past and we're not going to blame and shame mom for what she didn't know at the time but that also gives like for me personally that give me really good reason to focus on reestablishing back good bacteria because I know I wasn't exposed to that beneficial bacteria through breast milk yeah yeah good information right some babies who are breastfed have a higher proportion of that beneficial bacteria that protects them against pathogens certain diseases are often linked to an unhealthy gut which may not contain adequate levels of that beneficial bacteria that bacteria that's crucial for good digestion which we're talking about today exactly and in fact three so when we're talking about bacteria we're starting to see the bad bacteria has been connected as one of the primary causes of all servers specifically those peptic ulcers yes they said bad bacteria causes ulcers not stress and not spicy foods you know offer a hundred years or more doctors and researchers believed that all servers were related to stress and spicy foods you know but it wasn't until two thousand five that Nobel Prize winners in medicine Dr Barry Marshall and Dr robin Warren made that connection between ulcers and a type of bacteria called he'll go back to pylori's sometimes you guys have heard of that as H. pylori you know in the past people who are suffering from ulcers you know what they were told that they had high levels of stomach acid and they needed to reduce their stress to reduce that pain and inflammation no but now that we know that all servers are connected to H. pylori we can look at restoring that bacterial balance you know researchers proved the authors were not caused by stress but instead by that bad bacteria no we understand in the past the standard treatment for ulcers was to rest and maybe drink some cream or some butter milk you know so that sort of stuff may have felt good but it didn't actually eliminate the bad bacteria that H. pylori from the gods and I know tree so we definitely want to talk a little bit more about you know if people are struggling with all servers we've got some some ideas for them but we're going to take our first break if you're just tuning in this morning you are listening to dishing up nutrition brought to you by nutritional weight and wellness now this morning trees and I were looking at the root cause for many of those digestive issues that you may be dealing with if you're struggling with acid reflux or heartburn if yours juggling with gas or bloating definitely stick with us this morning one thing that you win want to consider is alcohol research from the national institutes of health reports that alcohol can cause inflammation in the gut and lead to future cancers maybe liver disease and even some neurological problems so we'll be right back health month this year.

"That's it. Wow that's a long time and when I started in the field nutrition not many people were interested in the topic of nutrition. I remember when you know. He's brought up the nutrition topic and people ran away sometimes. Still happens but not you know certainly not as much a lot of people now are avid nutritional learners and like to keep up with the latest nutritional news like we do and like all of you That means we're constantly reading research listening to podcasts about a variety of nutrition topics. So if you're still following nutrition recommendation from the seventies or eighties. Those High Fat. I mean sorry. Low Fat High Carb No saturated fat messages You want to pay attention to what we're talking about this morning. So we're GONNA talk about the quality and quantity of the research and that's changed dramatically over the years In fact Dr Marion Nestle is a professor of nutrition and she's an author of a number of books including food politics. She specializes in helping people understand the way research. Study results can be manipulated or skewed to produce the results that would be favorable to a food company. That is funding the research. So if you enjoyed digging deep into research studies and look at who actually sponsored them. That's a really important thing to do. Yeah so you may enjoy reading food politics or one of the other books by Dr Marion. Nestle and I think you'll find a rather surprising when you actually look at who finds those studies how that could change the results They're advertising Shane Publishing. Yes yes so join me today as our co host is Shelby Olsen. She's a very busy nutritionists. Just counseling clients individually teaching a lot of corporate classes for local companies and also leading our nutrition for weight loss series each week. I like variety. If you guys can't do you thrive on a lot of us do here. Yeah and when Shelby's not teaching or meeting with clients. She might be walking her dog with her husband or or making dinner at home. Ceu Shelby. Please tell our listeners. What our topic is this morning. We'll come morning Joanne. We don't cry pass as much as we used to. Or as much as I would prefer. But it's Nice Ray Sharon space with you this morning so good morning to our listeners. Regardless if you're listening live this morning or if you're listening to this podcast in the next hour we hope to share some interesting information about how sugar affects fibromyalgia pain. Many of you may not know this but FIBROMYALGIA is one of the most common chronic pain conditions. So even if you don't have FIBROMYALGIA and you're listening this morning don't tune us out because sugar is connected to chronic pain. But it's also affected too that FIBROMYALGIA so fibromyalgia affects about ten million people. Here in the United States and seventy five to eighty percent of the people who have been diagnosed with FIBROMYALGIA are women. So what does that mean? Research shows that eight percent of all adults struggle with FIBROMYALGIA which means when I'm teaching a nutrition for weight loss class. At least two of the twenty five people in my class may be struggling with with fibromyalgia paint. Now I know I see people who are in nutrition for weight loss. You know I do some of their individual counseling as well and and that seems to be the case. Once these class members start to eat real food you know their motivation is losing weight right but once they start having less pain than we can have that conversation about how the sugar and the flower that they were. Previously consuming was creating more inflammation in their bodies. So really what? I'm what I'm saying to guys is. When we're eating sugar and flour products that is inflammatory to our bodies. That's right and I've seen those same results with nutrition for weight loss clients when they come in for consultations and and even in you know when they're taking classes they'll be raising their hand. I'm I don't have as much pain right. It goes right away when they start making these changes right so and we found that in the past few years more and more clients with FIBROMYALGIA are turning to nutrition to ease some of their pain and fatigue. Because at this point they have not found. That medication is very helpful. So some of the top. I looked up the top three meds that we see often with clients. Right on that health questionnaire what are some of the things that that these clients with FIBROMYALGIA are taking exactly so the top three meds? I looked them up. And all of them have a weight gain side effect. Oh not a good thing. When you're in the nutrition for weight loss class you're dealing with chronic pain and then we have that weight gain side effects so we WANNA use real food nutrition To replace those medications or maybe at least maybe not replacement cutback as much as you can right right. So if you're far from fibromyalgia you know the painful symptoms and if you're a listener and are unfamiliar with FIBROMYALGIA. Some of the common symptoms are pain throughout the body. And if you have fiber Myalgia you may have painful tender points throughout your body right or that. Deep muscle pain Back pain neck pain. Lots and lots of pain is what people are experiencing right and other symptoms include fatigue. I mean think of how you feel when you're fighting a cold or a flu and you're more fatigued you have sleep problems. Other symptoms of fibromyalgia include brain fog anxiety depression headaches and evening evening that even that numbness and tingling and Gosh can't get my words out but having that numbness and tingling in your hands and your feet is one of those signs of fibromyalgia right so if you have fibromyalgia you may hurt all over. Feel that tire that fatigued have problems. Getting a good night's sleep. Maybe that leads to some depression as well. So as a Dietitian I always look for a food or nutrition reason why a person is experiencing aches and pains. I know for myself. I've had my share of aches and pains if I have a cracker or a half a slice of bread Or maybe eat some corn or some rice. I have extreme back pain or pain pain in my legs. Pin My hips So it's not just sugar for me. It's sugar and Greens But of course the Greens turn to sugar. So it's kind of the same thing But I get aches and pains through my back and legs very often and they then can interrupt my sleep so I really need to be careful in anytime. I hurt myself or pull a muscle or something like that. I know I have to eat perfect. You're tightening the ship up. I perfect because I know the pains GonNa come. Is My go off track at right. You're eating very carefully absolutely. Yeah yeah now. As I mentioned earlier our topic today is health. Five Zero Myalgia. Pain IS LINKED TO SUGAR. Rather how sugar affects more of that fibromyalgia pain so I wanNA bring you guys some research right away Dr Tito bomb. The director of FIBROMYALGIA and fatigue centers is an author as well including the book the fatigue and FIBROMYALGIA solution. But DR TEITELBAUM SAYS FOR SOME PEOPLE. Sugar may actually cause FIBROMYALGIA or make that existing FIBROMYALGIA. Pain worse So I WANNA make sure you heard that for some people. Sugar may actually be causing that intense pain that tenderness and that fatigue or make those fibromyalgia symptoms more intense right. And so when we're working with a client who has fibromyalgia or any kind of pain. We HELP THEM. Reduce and eliminate sugar. We know sugar and less sugary treats. are inflammatory more inflammation. We HAVE IN OUR BODY. The more aches and pains. They will have right and we know people aren't sitting in front of their sugar ball but those sugary drinks and cereal process carbs. All turn to sugar right. So it's shocking to realize that eighteen percent of the average American diet comes from that added sugar right so if you want the mount of sugar many people eat in a year can be up to the total of their body weight that was shocking to me to to see that we know how much sugar people are eating. When we're teaching classes about how many pounds of sugar people eating a year right well Joanne. We're GONNA go to our first Breyer. If you're just tuning in you're listening to dishing up nutrition and we are discussing. How sugar increases the pain level for people with FIBROMYALGIA and even people who have chronic pain and inflammation access. Sugar may also increase the risk for hypertension even more so than sodium essentially the more sugar you eat the greater your risk of dying from heart disease. Now today we shared how we're we're focusing specifically on how sugar negatively affects FIBROMYALGIA. But next week show is also going to talk about how sugar negatively impacts anxiety so be sure to tune in as Kara and caroline discuss what to eat to manage anxiety now before we flip it over to the commercial break we realize many people are concerned about the Corona Virus Cova nineteen and they want to know what they can do to support their immune function at nutritional weight and wellness. We're taking this topic very seriously. And we're preparing a special dishing up nutrition podcast to talk all supplements and foods you know of course. Our first recommendation is eliminating sugar and flour because we know they create inflammation more pain and decreases your immune system. We'll talk more about that on our way back. Welcome back.

"Today. We're going to explain a rather complex. And maybe it's unfamiliar term for many of you and that term is called the micro bio him and if you're a nutrition follower you more than likely have seen this term around whether it's blog articles you've read or podcast. Listen to but we want to take some time this morning to explain and explore and hopefully answer some questions around this concept of what exactly the microbiome is and how does it affect our health. If you'd like more information about the microbiome after this show you can go to our website which is weight and wellness dot com and read a blog article that I just wrote and we posted. I believe it was just last week on our website so the blog is titled. What is the microbiome? What does it do? And how does it keep us healthy? I know I've talked to a few clients of mine who have already read that and think it's just a really great resource so kudos on on putting that together and making it easier for our for followers in our listeners. To to kind of dive into this topic well thank. You shall be appreciate that. It took many hours actually more than I expected to get that blog together but it came together actually fairly nicely so in between that researching and the writing and trying to wrap my hat around this concept of the microbiome you know I I think I have a decent handle on what the microbiome is and just some of those impacts on our health but I also just want to preface this or throw this out there early in the show here that the study of our gut health in the microbiome. It's still a relatively new scientific field. Only the last fifteen to twenty years. We really had some firepower into the research behind this right. So there's things there's definitely a lot of things that we know but my guess is that there's a heck of a lot out there that we don't know exactly so we're going to hopefully break down some of those things that we do know for our listeners. This morning help translate that and give people some topics or some ideas on how we can make an impact on that microbiome right. Yeah so again. What is the microbiome And My name. I'll introduce myself now. I'm Leah Klein showed. I'm a registered and licensed Dietitian is see clients at our Mendota Heights location a few days a week. And you've heard her voice now but I have shelby Olsen who is in the studio with me as a co host. This morning shelby is a licensed nutritionist with a master's degree in applied clinical nutrition and she works with clients in our. Why's that a location? So we're kind of on the opposite side of the world for those of you who live in the twin cities Leah's than Mendota Heights. I'm in ways that we don't get to see each other very often but I thought it was really interesting. Li You and I both did our undergraduate degree in exercise science and then we went onto a master's program in clinical nutrition. And here we are getting to kind of nerd out over the microbial salute. So I hope that we can share some of our insights and some of OUR PASSION FOR HELPING PEOPLE UNDERSTAND. How Micro Ma how? The microbiome affects their health. And what you can do to keep your microbiome working for you not against you. Good morning everyone. Of course I'm excited to be in the studio here. I believe that understanding the microbiome helps us to see what's going on with our health but as humans. We are mostly made up of microbes. All of you a Germaphobe out here stick with US may surprise you that we as humans are mostly made up of microbes. In fact we have over one hundred trillion microbes both on the inside and outside of our bodies. And if you're thinking Micros what is that? Those are the tiny living things that are actually too small to see with the naked eye. But there on your skin there in your mouth or in that sinus cavity they're even in your intestinal tract really everywhere on the inside and the outside of your body and we know as we learn more about this research. We have more microbes in our body than we have human cells because there are are approximately ten microbes for every human cell that we have in our body. That's just those numbers one hundred trillion ten ten times more microbes for every human. Sell those numbers. You almost can't comprehend that. And the majority of those microbes live in our digestive system especially in the large intestinal tract or the colon. So I'm sure you've heard some of the names of these microbes like bacteria fungi protozoa and even viruses but in most cases when people hear bacteria or fungi or virus they automatically associate that with bad health or disease right. We've been hearing a lot about the corona virus clearly not something that We associate with good health but we are learning that not all bacteria not all microbes are all are bad for our health So that's really where we want to set that foundation for our discussion today. Absolutely yeah. There's some that they're more. They're more neutral but some that even work for us like you said earlier shelby. They work for us not necessarily against us. They actually help. Keep the bad guys in check right. So when we say the word microbiome. That's the good the bad. The ugly is a collection of bacteria viruses fungus. All of the above Yep absolutely so now that we know what microbes are so shall we did a nice job. Introducing that topic and some of the names of those microbes. Let me tell you now. So here's more scientific nerdy term for microbiome. We know the microbiome is all the genetic material that makes up all of these microbes. So all of those bacteria the fungi the protozoa viruses. Then those guys again. They live on our body. They live inside our body. This is all the genetic material that make up these microbes. So these microbes that are in the microbiome. They help us do a lot of things. So number. One first and foremost they help us digest our food. They help us break it. Down absorb everything like that. I think people have have started to buy into that idea a little bit more about you. Know breaking down our food or affecting our digestive system but tell us a little bit more because there are some other ideas about the microbiome right right so another huge concept about the microbiome and what they do for us is that it regulates our immune system. We know and I talked to my clients about this all the time about. What is it? Seventy eighty percent of our immune system is in that lining of our digestive tract especially our intestinal track. So we need all those. We need that like you said the good the bad the ugly all of that really lends itself to building up our immune system and keeping some of those bad guys at bay. So what? I'm hearing you say Leah. Is that if you have tummy troubles. You may actually be more likely to get a colder afloat definitely idea for you listeners. Yeah I'm going to share a little bit about that in my story little later on this show so I have some personal history with that but the microbiome also you know a protects us against the bad guys and it helps us produce some of our nutrients some of our vitamin specifically B twelve so might even be twelve Thiamine Riboflavin which are a couple other of our B. Vitamins and even vitamin K right. So it's very interesting that actually they we don't always necessarily get all of these nutrients from the food itself but from some of these microbes right and as I was researching for the show. I was thinking to myself. Well are the microbes on my skin. The same ones that are in my gut rate because we actually have lots of different microbes on our skin as that protective layer. It's not just a physical barrier. We actually have the bacteria the fungi. You know. Some of these other microbes on our skin so the short answer is no the different parts of our body all have different and distinct kind of communities or I sometimes call them. Families of microbes skin has their group or their family of microbes. The Vagina has a different family The intestinal tract has a different family of microbes. Each type of microbe likes to stay with their group or their family Much like humans do right. Yeah I've been don't travel too far out of that group typically right. Yeah and another interesting fact. Is that the microbiome from person to person differs so your microbiome. Shelby is not the same as mine. Ryan it's not the same as your husband's even the same my husband so lots of differentiation and individuality between people and that can even differ between twins identical twins are fraternal twins. They don't have the same microbiomes. Even though especially identical twins have that same genetic makeup right. Yeah right Researchers found that the microbiome in the intestinal tract from obese. Twins is different from lean twins. Oh Yeah so interesting right so I think actually will put a pin in that and come back to that on the other side of break. Yeah that sounds like a good idea. Okay I think we want to talk about them. A little. Bit Of -solutely. Yes so you're listening to dishing up nutrition and last week nutritional weight and wellness was featured on the TV program twin cities lie with Elizabeth recent. Steve Patterson we invite you to watch this interview. So if you didn't catch it live. We have this on our website at weight and wellness dot com. The story was about how madeline who is able to eliminate her back pain many years ago by eating real food so madeline was. Kinda the star of that show One of our nutrition therapy counselors. Melania many of you have heard her voice here on the show before she also was featured to share her simple take on food which she teaches to her clients in office and also in the classes that she teaches and she teaches that some foods really are harmful and some foods are healing so we encourage our students and our clients who always make that choice to eat the healing foods. Just as Madeleine did yeah. We'll be right back. Welcome back to dishing up.

And here we are getting to kind of nerd out over the microbial salute. So I hope that we can share some of our insights and some of OUR PASSION FOR HELPING PEOPLE UNDERSTAND. How Micro Ma how? The microbiome affects their health. And what you can do to keep your microbiome working for you not against you. Good morning everyone. Of course I'm excited to be in the studio here. I believe that understanding the microbiome helps us to see what's going on with our health but as humans. We are mostly made up of microbes. All of you a Germaphobe out here stick with US may surprise you that we as humans are mostly made up of microbes. In fact we have over one hundred trillion microbes both on the inside and outside of our bodies. And if you're thinking Micros what is that? Those are the tiny living things that are actually too small to see with the naked eye. But there on your skin there in your mouth or in that sinus cavity they're even in your intestinal tract really everywhere on the inside and the outside of your body and we know as we learn more about this research. We have more microbes in our body than we have human cells because there are are approximately ten microbes for every human cell that we have in our body. That's just those numbers one hundred trillion ten ten times more microbes for every human. Sell those numbers. You almost can't comprehend that. And the majority of those microbes live in our digestive system especially in the large intestinal tract or the colon. So I'm sure you've heard some of the names of these microbes like bacteria fungi protozoa and even viruses but in most cases when people hear bacteria or fungi or virus they automatically associate that with bad health or disease right. We've been hearing a lot about the corona virus clearly not something that We associate with good health but we are learning that not all bacteria not all microbes are all are bad for our health So that's really where we want to set that foundation for our discussion today. Absolutely yeah. There's some that they're more. They're more neutral but some that even work for us like you said earlier shelby. They work for us not necessarily against us. They actually help. Keep the bad guys in check right. So when we say the word microbiome. That's the good the bad. The ugly is a collection of bacteria viruses fungus. All of the above Yep absolutely so now that we know what microbes are so shall we did a nice job. Introducing that topic and some of the names of those microbes. Let me tell you now. So here's more scientific nerdy term for microbiome. We know the microbiome is all the genetic material that makes up all of these microbes. So all of those bacteria the fungi the protozoa viruses. Then those guys again. They live on our body. They live inside our body. This is all the genetic material that make up these microbes. So these microbes that are in the microbiome. They help us do a lot of things. So number. One first and foremost they help us digest our food. They help us break it. Down absorb everything like that. I think people have have started to buy into that idea a little bit more about you. Know breaking down our food or affecting our digestive system but tell us a little bit more because there are some other ideas about the microbiome right right so another huge concept about the microbiome and what they do for us is that it regulates our immune system. We know and I talked to my clients about this all the time about. What is it? Seventy eighty percent of our immune system is in that lining of our digestive tract especially our intestinal track. So we need all those. We need that like you said the good the bad the ugly all of that really lends itself to building up our immune system and keeping some of those bad guys at bay. So what? I'm hearing you say Leah. Is that if you have tummy troubles. You may actually be more likely to get a colder afloat definitely idea for you listeners. Yeah I'm going to share a little bit about that in my story little later on this show so I have some personal history with that but the microbiome also you know a protects us against the bad guys and it helps us produce some of our nutrients some of our vitamin specifically B twelve so might even be twelve Thiamine Riboflavin which are a couple other of our B. Vitamins and even vitamin K right. So it's very interesting that actually they we don't always necessarily get all of these nutrients from the food itself but from some of these microbes right and as I was researching for the show. I was thinking to myself. Well are the microbes on my skin. The same ones that are in my gut rate because we actually have lots of different microbes on our skin as that protective layer. It's not just a physical barrier. We actually have the bacteria the fungi. You know. Some of these other microbes on our skin so the short answer is no the different parts of our body all have different and distinct kind of communities or I sometimes call them. Families of microbes skin has their group or their family of microbes. The Vagina has a different family The intestinal tract has a different family of microbes. Each type of microbe likes to stay with their group or their family Much like humans do right. Yeah I've been don't travel too far out of that group typically right. Yeah and another interesting fact. Is that the microbiome from person to person differs so your microbiome. Shelby is not the same as mine. Ryan it's not the same as your husband's even the same my husband so lots of differentiation and individuality between people

"Your attention no way in the past we only had to worry about men getting heart disease but now we know that one in sixteen women will have coronary heart disease the most common cause of heart disease for women is actually the narrowing or the blockage of those coronary arteries that supply the blood vessels to the heart now as a nutritionist the fundamental question I believe we need to ask is what is causing this dramatic increase in heart disease and went in women the listeners you may be asking well what causes the narrowing of the arteries or what can we do to prevent disease now as a nutritionist I know that food is very powerful so we want to share some of the new research about the causes of heart disease in women and what we can do to prevent heart disease I'm Shelby Olsen I'm a licensed nutritionist with a master's degree in nutrition and I am in the studio this morning with two fun people well first and foremost I get to introduce now Melanie Beesley as a registered dietitian with several years of working with clients in a variety of settings including in the navy but the other fun person I haven't studio this morning as my dad yeah well we're not giving him the Mike this morning although he a he probably has lots to say about nutrition after our discussion last night but now I just have to tell you briefly I used to go to take your daughter to work day with my dad and so I thought it was only appropriate that it's your dad to work so it's exciting so we're gonna have a fun show this morning we've got some good people here to talk about heart disease no well you and I both work with clients one on one we work with clients utilizing nutrition therapy good word nutrition therapy right what does that really mean that means that we are using nutrition to make changes dramatic changes and help people feel and live therapeutic exact changes exactly now because we're seeing more and more of these clients having positive results with real food in balance some health insurance companies are getting on board and pain for the cost of nutrition therapy love it so it's nice Mel and I we also teach a variety of nutrition classes in the community we teach luncheon learns for some local businesses now Meloni besides all of the things that you do outside of nutritional weight and wellness I imagine you cook a lot I cook all the time but you know shall be I you know I raise a family I made food from scratch mine so I like to do things a little bit on the quick side and I'm you can do that in your busy lifestyle I don't understand for days on end in the kitchen but I'm I'm not going to compromise my health anymore so I'd cook real food yeah yeah now on this route real food idea of course today we were going to be talking about that connection between real food and heart disease but first we want to look at that the research so now can you tell us a little bit about the research first I'd like to say to all of our listeners good morning and thanks for listening today fifty years ago back in the nineteen seventies a diverse group of researchers propose from the research that refined carbohydrates especially sugar and a low intake of fibre were major factors causing coronary heart disease but unfortunately as many of you know their research was overshadowed by the belief that saturated fat was the culprit of heart disease and we were able to stop it we were told stop eating butter and lard and dark chicken meat on the skin of the poultry that right there is sad as a southerner I got me on worst fatty cuts of steak pork because they were the cause of heart disease the theory that saturated fat caused heart disease really prevailed from nineteen seventy four to two thousand fourteen and sadly some people still believe I hearing clinic I'm sure you do too that saturated fat causes heart disease and the eye color fat phobia they're really afraid of it right well that was actually the the cause for much of our discussion after dinner last night my parents were listening to a nutrition talk on their drive up to Minnesota yesterday and being truly my my father's daughter he was asking the question well why why has saturated fat Ben pude so much in the past and so we went through as a technical term right there exactly so we did we we kind of talked through these things but we know that research since two thousand fourteen has continued to show that saturated fats no listeners those are things like butter coconut oil organic lard organic tallow does play a much smaller role in heart disease where is sugar the greens those processed cereals and other carbohydrates are the foods that we actually need to keep our eye on in order to prevent heart disease so show me let's talk about what exactly that means from a day to day perspective well it means that in the past we were told to eat a bagel with margarine or I can't believe it's not butter and I always say what the heck is it that yeah right then we talked our toaster a bagel with some jelly or some jam but absolutely no butter or cream cheese I remember this being in the navy and it was a bagel with jelly yeah today were told to eat eggs cooked in butter with bacon Yom or sausage and a side of vegetables sauteed maybe in coconut oil are key which is just clarified butter right you talk about confusing right yeah was so which is it sugar fat that causes heart disease well older research from the nineteen seventies found that sugar was implicated or perhaps even the cause of many many diseases right well because of this research in the nineteen seventies about sugar and refined carbs the sugar industry became alarmed the whole they do yeah they're losing money right so they went out and hired their own researchers to say that eating saturated fat caused heart disease right well the knowledge of this scandal that the sugar industry actually hired researchers who were well paid to point the finger at saturated fat as being the cause of cardiovascular problems was only brought to light in two thousand sixteen right I think we both had that article when we did a luncheon learn my tie up to you and actually for you listeners who who want to look at this with your own eyes I have the New York times article right here the title is how the sugar industry shifted blame to fat and the the date on that is actually September twelfth of twenty sixteen cell just four years ago yeah I just Google New York times sugar article and it popped right up so you can read more about that after the show but it's really its false is very misleading research so it's so well ingrained in the minds of consumers that many people still believe it is saturated fat they need to avoid I have clients once or twice a week easily telling me their doctor said they need to avoid fat can I eat I how many are you can I safely eat in a day from really worried about this and they still believe it's saturated fat that they need to avoid right even though the current research shows that refined carbs and sugar are the leading cause of heart disease you know in Staten companies also the the pharmaceutical companies they don't wanna lose money on this either so right now when we think about that major research we're looking at that connection between what people eating long term and hell that's influencing their health exactly so another major research study published in the journal of the American metal SO medical associations internal medicine journal that's a mouthful reported that a sugar laden diet may raise your risk of dying from heart disease even if you are not over weight so this information reported from the research shows that sugar and refined carbohydrates lead to heart disease not your eggs cooked in butter with a side of vegetable oils sauteed in you know coconut oil so here's what else that that research study found people who eight twenty five percent or more of their calories from sugar or more than twice as likely to die from heart disease than those who only eight ten percent of their calories from sugar so maybe you guys are thinking well how are people consuming all of that sugar yeah I think a lot of people don't think they're really eating them sugar and I think we should talk about that but I think we have to take our first break okay so if you're just joining us this morning you were listening to dishing up nutrition brought to you by nutritional weight and wellness today we want to share with you the scientific evidence that found eating saturated fats of any kind have no affect on cardiovascular mortality so if you're concerned about heart disease I recommend you keep listening to our show this morning because we've got some ideas for you we'll be right back nothing but.

"Wellness mendota Heights location. And then the other two weekdays I am home with my son. Landon in It's a really great. I would say almost perfect work life balance in terms of scheduling. So let's get started with our discussion. We have addressed diarrhea so loose bowel movements on other shows. We've we spent entire other shows talking about diarrhea right so we've decided to focus more on today's show in terms of constipation and customization is a common problem in children of all ages so infants toddlers school age kids teenagers and even the children who are now all grown up now. They're adults young at heart. Absolutely we and so actually constipation is one of the most common chronic gastrointestinal disorders in adults. So Shelby we see this in in clinic like almost day in and day out with clients who are having. Maybe just a few bowel movements every week and actually when I was going through my master's program program for clinical nutrition. One of my first professor said if you are not comfortable talking about poop with people. You're in the wrong profession absolutely absolutely yes. We have to talk everything digestive from the top to the bottom right. Yeah so this morning we will spend time talking about the causes and some solutions for both children and adults who struggle with constipation issues so joining me in studio today shelby. Olsen who has a license nutritionist. Attrition as we will be talking about adult and childhood constipation which is a very real problem for so many people we believe this information formation that we're going to share this morning we'll help you find a solution. Yeah we'll good morning Leah and good morning to our listeners or good evening or good afternoon wherever you are in the world and listening I was formerly Shelby Hummel but as of about six seven months I am finally getting used to calling myself. Shelby Olsen Elson likely ahead mentioned. I'm a licensed nutritionist. And I actually see clients in our wise at a location. I also spend many of my days teaching wellness US classes for a variety of the companies. Here in the twin cities in the past few years more and more companies large and small are trying to provide nutrition information information to their employees in the hopes that they will remain healthy because we understand just like they do that. Healthy employees are productive employees. So Oh some of the classes that we may teach you know just the within the past week. I've taught a class called mindful eating I've taught classes about jumpstart. Your metabolism awesome eating real food for everyday health solutions. I talk about good foods and good moods that none brain connection to the foods that we eat so we really bring this eat real food message and people find it's a simple message that resonates with them as a result old of attending one of these lunch and learn seminars. Typically about an hour. They learned that they can eat real food that they buy in the grocery store. You know they don't have to buy box excludes or you know packaged things. They can go to the farmers market. They can go to any of the grocery stores in their area And quite frankly it's food their entire family can eat Right yeah that's important so that you're not the only person following a specific plan. It's nice when the whole family when everybody can NBA on board Yeah my mom she would always say. I'm not a short order. Cook GonNa eat what I mix. And that's exactly when we're talking about real foods. Mom and dad can eat it kids and you know teens. Everyone should be eating real food and can notice the difference that when they eat real food they feel good absolutely. Yeah so shelby and I both work with many adults and we both see children. I think I see more children now. Now that I have one of my own. So so maybe it's just that The Laws of the universe attract more kids. I don't know But many of these adults and some of the kids are struggling with constipation. Shen and parents sometimes don't even realize that they have constipation problem and truth be told. Many people don't realize that having a bowel movement every three maybe four days is a problem I would also venture to say I have a lot of clients who come in and they say well I know maybe it's not normal but this is my normal right so this has been me forever. I don't know what to do about it right. And so when we ask them have you had. Do you have a bowel movement. Every day. They say oh no. I'm not constipated my normal is every three or four days. We would identify that as a problem today. We do want to give you guys an idea of what normal bowel habits look like. And of course give you some of those indications of abnormal bowel habits. Now I remember one of our young adult clients who would have a bowel movement once every two. Oh Aw can you imagine her heart a little. I know she thought that was normal. So are you wondering asked this question. What is normal for an Infant or a young child or even for an adult. What does that normal look like? Yeah Yeah Shelby. We're talking a little bit about that before we came on air of like what is normal And when I was first starting this whole mother journey and I would still consider myself fairly new parents even at seventeen months. Yeah I was just a little surprised that I was changing my son's diaper. You know at least three to four times a day. I mean realistically there were definitely days where it was like eight to ten times a day to. You're a pro. You get good at it really fast. And actually. When mothers breastfeed their babies many of those babies have have a ball movement after every feeding and I can attest in those early days? You were breastfeeding breastfeeding sessions. Eight ten twelve times a day. A sometimes all clustered together so There's a lot going on. Yeah And infants who are breastfed are rarely constipated Ed. Right and typically by about age to A child is having one to two formed bowel movements daily By the age of four. They're usually continuing that pattern of one two formed bowel movements a day right and if everything is working right most school age kids teens and adults should should be having one bowel movements daily in fact one or two daily as an adult is what we would consider normal and healthy right. You're eating every day Jay Multiple Times. Actually so you should be eliminating we digestion and elimination because we want to be working through absolutely. Yeah so an infant or toddler who is constipated typically will have a bowel movement that it's hard to pass. Yes they might be straining or they might be sitting on the toilet for a while or in my son's case he's not potty trained yet but you'll notice he will stop in his tracks and he'll be pushing you get that red face then look concentration So if they're doing that a lot or you notice hard little pellets in the diaper or in the toilet that would be. That would be considered constipation right on the other hand a child who normally has a ball movement maybe every two days may not be constipated as long as that ball movement is soft not difficult or painful to pass So it's it's still an easy process process for it to come out. Yeah making that distinction. Yeah exactly so constipation. Tends to be common at three different times in a child's life so the first time is typically after starting solid foods So if you think about that. They're getting more roughage at that point So that might look something like rice. Cereal applesauce are typical foods at people. Start with with those solid foods right another time is during toilet training. And then lastly Ashley usually after starting school right so Leo. Let's talk more about Good concert good digestion and address. More of that childhood constipation constipation after break. Yup that sounds good. So you're listening to dishing up nutrition and this morning our topic was going to be about constipation and diarrhea like I. I mentioned before we've talked about diarrhea loose bowel movements in great length on all their prior shows Sosa Day. We're doing extensive focus on constipation Russian and mainly concentrated concentrating on constipation in childhood so surprisingly constipation in today's world is a serious problem problems for many children. We ask the questions. Why is this happening to children in this day and age perhaps more so than it used to be and our Dietitian titian brains always go to? Could it be the processed foods that our kids are eating. So we'll have our thoughts in answers coming up so stay tuned. We'll be right back. We'll come back accident nutrition. We're proud of the nutrition education classes that we offer notably because most participants get amazing results. So before are we get back into our topic of constipation. I WANNA take a moment to share some of the truly incredible statistics with you about our six-week weight and wellness this series so that that would be the original class series that was developed for nutritional weight and wellness Buyer owner Charleen Kevin so over fifteen hundred hundred. People have taken our weight and wellness series and ninety four percent of them improve their health scores by over fifty percent. Fifteen hundred people. Yeah I know look at that number over the course of the years that's amazing and the owner of nutritional weight and wellness Darlene. Cavas her goal is that everyone would take that worldwide. She wants to bring this information to everyone. I think it's really cool. Fifteen hundred a great start to seven billion. Now we're working on it so it sounds impressive when you hear that ninety. Four percent of people are improving their health. But what does that really mean. Well what if I told you that you could feel better in just I six weeks now. The statistics that we have on the show or on the series show that fifty six percent of people have improvement energy uh-huh which I think that's amazing but we start to look at. What do you do in that class series to have these marked improvement so our weight and wellness series? We talk about blood sugar balance. We talk about digestive health. We talk about sleep and even cover things. It's like that food mood connection the great news for those of you. Listening is that we have a couple of classes starting soon if you are local to the twin cities area we have one in our Eden prairie location. That will start on Mondays and we have another in our north oaks location. That will start on Wednesdays. And if you enroll by February third you can get fifty dollars off now. Everyone loves a good deal. Now if you're a nurse or a social worker and you're listening know that this class qualifies for Continuing Education Credits. It's not just one or two. I WANNA see. It's twelve to Fort Young the fourteenth so it's a good chunk yeah it is really nice and oftentimes nurses tell me wow. I wish I would've have known this when I first started in in practice so to enroll in our six-week weight and wellness series. Or to learn more you can go to weight and wellness DOT COM orca color office this morning the Gals at the front desk would be happy to answer your questions. You can.

"And it really comes across when she's working with her clients enter class members and she works with people to make positive changes so really excited to be here with shelby today and we have a great and interesting topic to share with you so the title of our show today is how processed foods are connected to weight gain. Well Hey car. It's back in the studio with you as well. I'm going to have to practice this shelby Olsen. Yeah I take me a while. Yeah change is good sometimes though right. You're seeing you. Thank you well. It's great to be back. I don't think any of us at nutritional weight and wellness were surprised when we saw the results what's with the National Institute of Health The N._I._H. When they found they were studying this topic of processed foods and their connection to weight gain basically the N._I._h. Study found that heavily processed foods 'cause overeating and waking no surprise for those of us at nutritional weight and wellness but this study found that people eating ultra processed foods eight more calories and gained more weight than when they ate minimally processed fast foods now. We're GONNA be talking a little bit more about what that ultra processed food would be. Give you guys some specific examples. You can follow along with us this morning and we are. We're going to dive actually pretty deep into this study because it was so interesting you might be wondering how did they set the study up so that each test. USC Group had the same amount of calories therefore making it possible to compare things you know apples to apple <hes> so the the National Institutes of Health Health study it was a highly controlled experiment so that part is really important it was carefully constructed with each and every meal that was provided to participants <hes> and it was a smaller study but it was you know their money spent on it and the fact that it was so highly controlled is what makes the outcome mm so interesting right <hes> so the study included ten males and ten females. All twenty participants were housed right there at the N._I._H. Clinical Center for one month right the first two weeks their diet consisted of meals of ultra processed foods and then the following two weeks leaks. Their Diet was comprised of meals that were minimally processed foods right so really what you're saying. Here is the foods considered ultra processed or the foods considered minimally processed real foods exactly the people who are participating the ten men and the ten women. They were actually exposed to both diet cracks. Yeah okay okay so the food's considered ultra process had ingredients found in factory foods so we're talking about the hydrogenated vegetable oils. Maybe like a soybean oil or corn oil or even cottonseed oil canola oil <hes> these foods also contained high fructose. Roop tose Corn Syrup that sweetener it had flavoring agents and even most fire so to give you an example listeners an ultra processed breakfast that that they would have served might have considered of say like a Bagel with cream cheese whereas a minimally processed vetch <hes> breakfast would have had some sort of vegetables spinach. Some protein may be coming from eggs and of course real fruit like a cup or something like that enlists. Some listeners might be a a little bit confused at this point thinking well isn't a Bagel and cream cheese healthy and I mean we'll talk more about that too but that would be considered processed food abaga with the cream she is versus the real food with eggs vegetables and fruit so the ultra processed and the minimally processed meals they actually had the same amount of calories the same amount of sugar fiber fat and carbohydrates in the participants could eat as much or as little as they wanted wanted right so. I think that's important to highlight again. People were given the foods while they were in in house. They were offered the same foods they had the same amount of calories the same amount of sugar fiber all of those kind of macro nutrients that we're talking about <music> out but they could eat as much or as little as they want it so that's one thing that we're going to be talking about a little bit more as it relates to so the result so you may be asking what were the results of the study on the ultra process diet the participants eight about five hundred more calories each day on those processed foods compared to the real foods the minimally processed diet they ate faster on the ultra process diet and they also gained weight so those are two having important takeaways for for those of you listening not only where people eating faster. Mr On the ultra process diet they were also gaining weight whereas when people were eating the minimally processed dieter for you know simplicity. We'll just call him real foods. The participants were actually averaging a weight loss of two pounds so that would be about a pound a week because you're her. They were eating these things for two weeks so it was actually kind of the opposite effect so the people that were running more. We're GONNA talk more about that but they gain on average a pound a week. <hes> people that reading real food lost about an average account per week and I want to just really drive this home Kara for our listeners. People were eating the same <hes> <hes> grams of protein. They were eating the same grams of carbohydrates. The same grams of fat on the ultra process diet versus the real food diet so when it comes to comparing their diets for the two different weeks it is is the same right. That's one of the things that we wanna make sure were were pinpointing today because it does make a difference when you start to look at metabolism but then also other health concerns right right and like you said they were eating faster so there were a lot of things that were different when the processed food group exactly and I don't think any of us in the I would recommend that people eat processed rice but you know with a study like this with these findings. Now there's actual research that shows yes people gain more weight when their diet is made up mostly of these highly processed. Sometimes we call them factory-made he made foods right right and I just want to go over those results one more time to make sure our listeners research is not easy to understand even for people who have have exposure to research but one of the things that car and I were really hoping to do this morning is to help you guys understand these results because it is a landmark study and how all this could potentially help you be looking at your nutrition your nutrition plan so the test study subjects consumed five hundred calories calories more daily eating the ultra process diet compared to those on the minimally processed diet so they went from an average of twenty ninety five hundred calories a day on the minimally processed diet to about three thousand calories on the ultra process factory foods so in two weeks of eating processed foods. They gained two pounds or an average of a pound a week now. If you eat processed foods every week for fifty two weeks six that means that you can vary likely gain fifty or more poems now. That's one thing that we would consider a serious problem especially here. In the the United States where we're seeing these rises in obesity heart disease and type two diabetes yeah a pound a week pounding here and there doesn't sound like a lap when we're talking about an average of gaining a pound a week right and fifty pounds a year that <hes> that can lead to a lot of serious chronic health health issues so let's talk about what did the altar process diet look like so this might come as a surprise to many of you but the altar processed diet wasn't a bunch of chips and cookies and soda. You know that's that's kind of what I thought before. I actually tells Oh. It's a bunch of fast food and junk on food. It was more like convenience foods so think about things like canned soup rice in a pouch <hes> so unfortunately we you know a lot of people might perceive those types of foods as being healthy canned soup or right rice in a pouch or hamburger helper in a box yeah right right those are ultra processed right and so one of the things that we've talked a lot about here on dishing up nutrition is sugar sweetened beverages now. L. Sugar sweetened beverages would be something that I think of as ultra process. You know we're talking about soda energy drinks fruit juices juices those kind of smoothie juices like I think of like the odd wallow or like the naked juices those I think of as being very processed processed high sugar but what you're saying here is that you know a lot of the ultra processed foods that they were researching weren't what we consider or jumped yeah. They weren't maybe as obvious like like the juice or the soda. The chips the candy the desserts right it was just more <hes> backs foods canned foods things convenience op right right. They do have a lot of chemicals and bad fats. which is something that I think we should talk a little bit more on the other side of break down scrape? Give our listeners a little bit more about this research and what that means. You're just tuning in..
