Today, I am blessed to have here with me for the FOURTH time Dr. Pompa. He completed his undergraduate education at the University of Pittsburgh and earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree at Life University's College of Chiropractic in Marietta, Georgia, where he graduated second in his class of 150. He and his wife, Merily, are now raising 5 young children and actively participating in their home church, North Way Christian Community. Cycling, reading, researching, and lecturing also fill the doctor's leisure hours.

U.S., large chiropractic seminars annually feature him as a guest speaker to hundreds of professionals who learn of his detoxification program for neurotoxic conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome and autism. In 2004, spiritual leaders and health care practitioners hosted Dr. Pompa's teachings on health and healing principles and the dangerous misuse of western medicine.

Dr. Pompa has established his practice on a firm and proven conviction that the crisis of modern-day allopathic medicine is the sad result of physicians chasing symptoms with medication rather than addressing the root cause of disease. His patients receive treatment based on the fact that God created the human body with the ability to heal itself when interferences such as metal toxicity, poor nutrition, and subluxations are removed.

In this episode, Dr. Pompa opens the show by explaining hormesis and the importance of stress on our bodies. There’s something called the hormetic zone; once you understand how it works, it can completely change your health. We talk about how exercise is critical stress on your body; however, it’s possible to overdo it. Dr. Pompa explains how to know if you’re overdoing it with exercise. Plus, we chat all about fasting and the importance of diet variation. Tune in as Dr. Pompa answers questions from Keto Kamp listeners.

[03:00] Understanding Hormesis: It Will Change The Way You Think About Stress

  • Hormesis sounds like the most boring conversation on the planet. However, it’s not!
  • When you learn this principle, it will change the way you think forever about stress.
  • Ultimately, hormesis is about how we apply stressors and actually change the functionality of our bodies.
  • There's something called the hormetic zone when you nail it, and you can drive healing in the body.
  • All these positive things come out of hormesis; it will change the way you think about everything.
  • Hormesis refers to adaptive responses of biological systems to moderate environmental or self-imposed challenges through which the system improves its functionality and tolerance to more severe challenges.

[06:55] How Hormetics Increase Homeodynamics Through Exercise

  • Aging, senescence, and death are the final manifestations of the failure of homeodynamics.
  • When you don’t adapt, then you bring on death much faster in the form of senescence cells.
  • Molecular, cellular, and physiological pathways of repair.
  • If we nail this principle, then we live longer and healthier.
  • Exercise is the best way to increase homeodynamics.
  • We need stress to become better.

[11:25] How Do I Know My Hormetic Zone When It Comes To Exercise?

  • If you haven’t exercised in a while, then you’ll be sore the next day. That means you went over the hormetic zone.
  • You can either exercise too little, or you can stress your body too much.
  • People want to exercise when they're sick; however, your body’s ability to adapt to stress is very low during sickness.
  • If you feel tired the next day, then you are doing too much exercise.
  • You need to get your body to adapt to higher levels of stress.

[16:40] Examples of Physical Hormetins That Will Create Stress

  • These are examples of hormetins that will create stress:
    • Heat has been shown to mimic the effects of exercise on the body.
    • Cold activates protective brown fat in the body and can lead to weight loss.
    • Exercising in the cold is especially beneficial.
    • Low-dose radiation enhances the cytotoxicity of natural killer cells.
    • It will also regulate the negative effects of the immune response by inhibiting the transformation of immature DCs to mDCs.
    • Thermal shock
    • Strength and stamina exercises
    • Low-Dose Radiation
    • Gravity
    • Covid
    • Repetitive stress
  • Temperature change forces adaptation by altering the microbiome, causing a hormonal shift.

[26:20] Fasting Is A Stress That Applies To Hormesis

  • Fasting is one of the most significant stressors that we can apply to hormesis.
  • When you understand the principle of hormesis, you definitely will look at fasting differently.
  • A lot of people are fasting too much. If you fast too much, you can decrease immunity and lose muscle.
  • Fasting shouldn’t be the same for everyone – you don’t want to over-stress yourself with fasting.

[39:10] Types of Block Fasts and Where Should I Start?

  • There are benefits to longer fasts.
  • Water-only fasts have been happening for thousands of years. It’s one of the purest forms of fasting. It forces higher levels of autophagy.
  • You shouldn’t do a water fast unless you are fat-adapted or you’re experienced with fasting.
  • You should start keto before you start fasting.

[56:10] Fasting For Fertility – Is Intermittent Fasting Safe?

  • Fasting is the greatest hormetic stress known to man.
  • We've seen miracles hormonally happen with fasting.
  • However, fasting has to be applied correctly for it to work.
  • If you're a woman who is looking to be more fertile than the five days right before your cycle would be critical.
  • Feast/famine monthly will change the body hormonally.
  • Feasting is creating new healthy cells.

[58:30] Make Sure You Vary Your Diet Based On The Season

  • Diet variation can be done seasonally or monthly.
  • Plus, you should go in and out of ketosis.
  • Some people do four diet changes a year based on the season.
  • Dr. Pompa will change his diet based on boredom and travel.
  • You can throw in a carnivore diet to mix up your microbiome.
