    About Thom King

    An accomplished businessman, television producer, filmmaker and author, Thom King began his life journey in Colorado (via Wisconsin), where he studied marketing at the University of Colorado. He graduated from Chadwick University with a BA in environmental studies, then went on to attend graduate school at the University of California, Los Angeles, where he studied intellectual property law.
    King began his career in the broadcast industry, eventually becoming the vice president and general manager of five radio stations — KHAY-Country, KBBY-AC, KVEN-News-Talk, KMGQ-NAC and KHTY-Modern Rock — for McDonald Media Group Inc., a division of McDonald Investment Company Inc. He also held the position of regional vice president of sales for the integrated marketing and online division of Clear Channel Worldwide.
    While at Clear Channel, King leveraged the tremendous consumer reach and broad appeal of Clear Channel’s local radio brands, as well as entertainment and venue opportunities. He was instrumental in helping Clear Channel capitalize on unique opportunities by converging its radio assets and outdoor assets — with its interactive assets — into fully integrated campaigns that garnered maximum results, effectiveness and efficiency.
    In 1992, King founded Southwest Multimedia as an incubator for developing businesses that fit the vision and sensibilities upon which the company was founded — to support aspiring entrepreneurs and small businesses in cutting-edge, zero-carbon-footprint technologies and concepts.
    One company that Southwest Multimedia fostered was Multimediary Entertainment Marketing . The company’s goal was to augment (not replace) what consumer brands are currently doing by using selected entertainment properties in music, TV and film to build brand equity with audiences in the appropriate target market. Between 2001 and , Southwest Multimedia built brands by making them part of the entertainment experience through using artists’ likeness, music, tours and creative in retail-driven on-or-off-premise promotions.
    In 1999, King founded Steviva Brands. When not envisioning a new stevia blend to help replace the amount of sucrose and high-fructose corn syrup used in food products and food prep, Thom spends much of his time learning and thinking about people’s dietary needs and ways to help improve what we eat. If King isn’t coming up with new and exciting ways to prepare food for friends and family, he is working on a ketogenic diet.
    A firm believer in also giving back to his community, King is a member of and contributor to the Portland Boys & Girls Club. He is a volunteer and mentor for the Mercy Corps MicroMentor program and a contributor and participant in the Audubon Society of Portland, Ecotrust and the Wild Salmon Center.

  • INFLAMMATION, WEIGHT GAIN AND EXHAUSTION ARE NOT JUST PART OF GETTING OLDER: How to heal with a KETO approach to eating. (Part 2)

    How the KETO Diet Can Help Autoimmune Conditions AND Help Women Lose Weight After Age 40!

    Vivica Menegaz is blogger, nutritionist, and well-known ketogenic cookbook author. One of the reasons she loves the ketogenic diet is due to how it let her bounce back from a pre-diabetic state. She didn’t like the advice given by doctors and certainly never accepted her health problems as part of the aging process. She studied nutrition and learned under Dr. Deborah Penner, a person Vivica says pushed her into a career that just happened to be her calling.

    In part 1 of our interview, Vivica joins us to talk about how she embarked on her health and fitness journey and  her many struggles. We also discuss why she became adamant about helping herself and the many lessons she learned from her self-taught experience.

    “It’s your own problems and health challenges that lead you to become an expert in certain things.” Vivica Menegaz

    Remember- this is PART TWO- if you want to listen to PART ONE of this 2-part interview, CLICK HERE.

    In this episode, you’ll learn:

    • When she started eating healthier.
    • How research in nutrition led her to the ketogenic diet.
    • How refusing to go the path her mom and grandma took became her stepping stone.
    • Why she’d rather study thyroid and adrenal as her specialty than female hormones.
    • Are women particularly vulnerable to adrenal and thyroid problems?

                           About Vivica Menegaz

    From her online bio: Vivica Menegaz is a certified whole-food nutritionist, blogger, published author and one of the leading voices advocating for a food-based approach to healing. Vivica was the first one to use the now popular expression “Keto Paleo” to describe her lifestyle and way of eating.

    She is the founder of the “The Healing Foods Method’ – an 14 week online nutrition program where she works 1-on-1 with clients to turn their health around utilizing a therapeutic ketogenic diet for healing (keto paleo).

    Tracing back to her Italian origins, Vivica is a passionate cook whose love of healing food has been shared with millions through her blog, “The Nourished Caveman.”

    While living in Northern California, pursuing her self-sufficiency dreams and practice of nutrition, Vivica’s life came to a turning point when she discovered she was pre-diabetic. The nourishing Paleo foods she had been advocating we evidently not the whole solution to modern health problems. Fueled by this discovery, Vivica dove into research and found the ketogenic diet. It was love at the first bite.

    Within the first couple of months, her blood glucose levels dropped, she shed excess weight, her brain fog cleared up and her energy levels skyrocketed. After a year of successful keto paleo lifestyle Vivica’s own health journey took another turn as she was now diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and Hypothyroidism. Again she had to rely on her studies and practical applications to resolve those challenges, and that is how she became the first holistic nutritionist to successfully utilize a ketogenic approach as the foundation to endocrine rebalancing.

    Vivica’s therapeutic approach to food, lifestyle and supplementation, utilizes the healing power of foods and mindset, to address the incapacitating symptoms of many lifestyle-diseases that have plagued our modern lives.

    She has made it her mission to help others reclaim their health and quality of life.

    Vivica is also the author of 3 cookbooks: “The Ultimate Paleo Cookbook” 2015, together with 9 other bloggers, and “The big book of Fat Bombs” in 2016. Her latest book: “The Keto Paleo Kitchen” was released in December 2017. She also authored “The Essential Carnivore Diet Cookbook
