The LLVLC Show (Episode 590): Naturopath Dr. Dae Jones Understands The Power Of Nutrition


In Episode 590 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we’re so pleased to welcome the infectious personality of naturopathic physician Dr. Dae Jones! Known by her patients as “Dr. Dae” (pronounced DAY), she is an enthusiastic voice of reason when it comes to the proper role of nutrition on your health.

Trained in naturopathic medicine at the University of Bridgeport’s College of Naturopathic Medicine in 2002, Dr. Dae is abundantly aware that the human body is not a machine that responds well to things like prescription drugs and weird science experiments with our food supply. Zeroing in on real, whole foods that will nourish your body and make it run optimally healthy is the premise of everything she does.

In 2003 she founded the Healthy Daes Naturopathic Medical Center in Silver Spring, Maryland and is teaching her patients a new way to look at living healthy! She is also the author of a healthy eating cookbook entitled Daelicious! Recipes for Vibrant Living. Listen in today as Dr. Dae and I have a delightful conversation about the current state of nutritional wisdom and why it’s so wrong as well as what we feel is the naturopathic wave of the future in medicine. ENJOY!

Listen to Dr. Dae share from her experience and knowledge:

  • She “fell into” naturopathy after she was a patient at 24
  • The “mind-body connection” clicked for her in being healthy
  • A change in diet and supplements produced a major “change” in her
  • She went to naturopathic medical school to learn the craft
  • Stress is the #1 causative factor in the decline in health
  • Stress always makes whatever you are dealing with much worse
  • People need a specific plan they can execute in their lives
  • Eat less and go to the gym is too vague to help anyone
  • People don’t understand how protein and fat satiates
  • Why conventional medicine quickly jumps to pharmaceutical drugs
  • Naturopaths look at the “underlying cause” and not just symptoms
  • Nutritional education is devoid is traditional medical training
  • Doctors don’t have any answers for patients about nutrition
  • Naturopathic physicians are more apt to have nutritional answers
  • Whether the medicine of the future will be more like naturopathy
  • There are trends towards people learning more about nutrition
  • How to teach people how to eat better in their daily lives
  • Her dream is that there would be “teams” that treat patients
  • Write down all of your questions for your doctor beforehand
  • Talk to your doctor about where to get answers if they don’t know
  • Why people are so confused about what real food actually is
  • People are so heavily marketed to by food manufacturers
  • Whole foods are found on the perimeter of the grocery store
  • The boxes in the middle aisles are mostly processed carbohydrates
  • “I’ve never seen an Oreo tree” because it doesn’t exist
  • Keeping fresh herbs in your kitchen window is easy to do
  • Going to a farm to meet a cow is a great family trip
  • This is a great way to show kids where their food comes from
  • The color and taste of local free-range eggs is far superior
  • People have been given the wrong information about eggs
  • Local farm eggs have more of the good fats your body needs
  • High triglycerides are a precursor to diabetes and heart disease
  • Whole grains were added to our diet “late in the game”
  • Grains have come into “a very prominent role” in the last century
  • You don’t need 6-12 servings of grains in your daily diet
  • Whole grains take 50 minutes to prepare; protein cook faster
  • Why she loves bread but doesn’t keep it in her house
  • People can’t fathom life without whole grains
  • Her recipe book and YouTube channel
