The Secrets to Longevity with Dr Rajka

Dr. Rajka Gailbraith is a successful leader in women’s health and functional medicine, having trained hundreds of practitioners and delivered babies in both a clinic and hospital. She is passionate about empowering women leaders to optimize their health and performance, and has expertise in longevity, performance, autoimmune disease, and neurogenetics. She runs retreats for women’s groups and programs online, and sees patients in her clinic, Simply Health Institute, outside of Chicago. Dr. Rajka is committed to helping women and their families achieve optimal health and performance.

As a child, Dr. Rajka had dreams of becoming a doctor, curing everyone, and having a family. However, she found that she could not cure everyone, and that traditional medical practices often led to misdiagnoses. She experienced fatigue and eventually was diagnosed with Hashimoto thyroiditis. This led her to do a deep dive into functional medicine and functional nutrition, and now she works to help others find underlying causes behind their symptoms, rather than just treating the symptoms.

Listen for the amazing 3D protocol which is an approach to health and wellness that involves diet, digestion, and detox. It is important to approach health in the right order, as one step will feed off the next. Heed and listen to the warnings against juice cleanses for those who have never eaten a healthy day in their life, as it can make them feel worse and turn them off from health and wellness altogether. The 3D protocol is an overall approach to health and wellness which can help individuals improve their health and well-being.

Dr. Galbraith presents the acronym TASK, which stands for Track, Add, Subtract and Keep, as an approach to eating an abundant, nourishing diet. Tracking what you are eating for a couple of weeks helps to bring awareness to what is missing from your diet. After tracking, the next step is to add in any foods that may be missing from the diet. Then, only after tracking and adding, the next step is to subtract any foods that are causing inflammation or other health issues. Finally, the last step is to keep the foods that are benefiting your health and eliminating the ones that are not. Following this approach can help to ensure that you are eating an abundant and nourishing diet.

Memorable Quotes:

“I love acronyms because then people will remember, and I call it the Task method. So I’m going to put you as a task to eat an abundant nourishing diet. So at the end of the day, regardless of what we do for short term to figure things out, the long term goal is to nourish your body and eat in abundance.” (7:50, Rajka)

And she had the misfortune of having to be in hospitalization. And here’s a woman who’s worked all her life, and I just saw her in that bed, and she just looks so old, and it was so sad. And I’m like, when did it come to this? What if I had only known what I know now? Then can we prevent it? Because her physical body is failing her, and that’s where we say her lifespan is not matching her health span right now. (24:16, Rajka)

It’s an investment, and you can do it three times a week. And let me give an example. I had a cyclist who wanted to get to a goal of riding 55 miles by his 55th birthday and was finding it hard to ride for more than an hour, hour and a half. And he rode 90 minutes hard doing interval training and said, oh, I felt like I could have gone another half hour. (37:18, Rajka)
