Josh Rubin and his wife Jeanne Rubin are owners of East West Healing where they specialize in nutrition for thyroid health.

The philosophy behind their approach to nutrition was developed under the influence of human physiology and research studies dating way back to the late 1800’s early 1900’s and some even earlier.

The science Josh and Jeanne are presenting is what they like to refer to as Universal Science, a science based on principles that can be applied to everyone.

These are facts we know are true, such as – the sole purpose of eating food is to fuel the body’s cells with energy. Just like a car needs gas, humans require food.

Metabolism begins in the cell, which is the most basic unit of life and where your body converts food to energy.

Each and every one of your trillion cells has an engine designed to produce energy – the energy needed to fuel ALL your systems. The more efficient your cells are at producing energy, the more energy your body will have at its disposal.

When the systems of the body have a steady supply of energy, they are able to repair, rebuild, and function at very high levels.

One of the most efficient ways in which the body produces energy is through a process called cellular respiration.

In this episode we discuss:

  • How you breath can indicate the state of your metabolism

  • What role C02 plays in your metabolic function and how wasting C02 can be a problem

  • How conserving C02 can help us better produce energy, sleep and exercise by ultilizing 02 more efficiently.

  • How we can easily test our tolerance to C02 and why that matters.

  • How your breathing effects your posture and what you can do about it.

  • Why nose breathing is the best way to balance your ph, raise your metabolic rate and lower your stress hormones.

  • How breathing through your mouth affects the shape of your jaw and how this relates to your posture.

  • How we eat and breathe shapes our jaw.
