A lot of like high stress individuals that don't take care of themselves, their ticker checks out in around 65, 67. Yeah, pretty standard. It just takes its toll. I mean, and the funny thing is, you know, when you go back and you look at the pictures of him prior to, oh yeah. He does kind of look like he was about to pop, you know. It's not good. Yeah, he had a big old moon he was about to pop you know, it's not good He had a big old moon face and he was you know beans up on the forehead and the beans out of the side of the neck What was like first of all how did he meet you? How did this this kind of about and like how did the conversation start? So we have a mutual friend named Carrie Kasim if you remember remember, Casey Kasim, the Carrie, where were they back in the day in the early UFC? Okay. So, you know, I recently met Carrie and she had kind of a life changing experience as well. You know, if you know anything about her journey with Lyme disease and chronic viral infection, I mean, she really, she really struggled and ended up healing herself. And she took the same test that the Dana White did it was life changing for her and she was like what is this test? It's a genetic test it looks at genetic methylation pathways. So methylation pathways methylation path that was so Think about it like this You know, we pull crude oil out of the ground, right? But but you can't put crude oil into your gas tank, right? Because the car doesn't understand that fuel source. So what happens is crude oil has to be refined into gasoline. And then the car can run. Okay, so in human beings, there's a similar process called methylation. There's not a single compound known to mankind, not one. There's no vitamin, no mineral, no amino acid, no nutrient, no protein, no nutrient of any kind that enters the human body and is used in the format that we put it in. Without a single exception, everything we put into our bodies has to be refined into the usable form. If you can't make this conversion, you have a deficiency. [2:04] It's this deficiency that leads to the most common ailments that we suffer from. So that process is called methylation. And there's several genes that govern it. This is where a lot of the misconception about genetically inherited disease comes from. We'll say, well, Joe, you know, your father and law has, or not your father and law, your father on your mom's side had hypertension, your father in law has, or not your father in law, your, your father on your mom's side had hypertension, your grandfather had hypertension. Now you have hypertension. So you have genetically inherited hypertension or you have familial hypertension. Well, hypertension is commonly known as high blood pressure. High blood pressure. Yeah, high blood pressure. But 85% of all high blood pressure is what we call idiopathic, right? It's a known origin. So we say that things are genetically inherited because they run in families But it's rarely the disease that's passed from generation to generation What we pass from generation to generation is the inability to refine a raw material [3:03] Which causes a deficiency Which leads to that disease and What generally leads to hypertension? So if you look at a Dana Weitz case, right, is a perfectly common case. In fact, the Journal of Hypertension published an article in November 19th of 2017, if you want to look at our club. And essentially linking an amino acid in the bloodstream called homocysteine to hypertension. And the reason for this is you got homocysteine in your blood, I've got it in my blood, everybody listen to this podcast that is homocysteine. But if you have an impaired ability to break homocysteine down, right, to take that amino acid, homocysteine, and convert it into a harmless amino acid called methionine. If you can't make this conversion, homocysteine rises. Causes something called hyper-homocysteine, a high homocysteine blood. When homocysteine rises, it becomes one of the more inflammatory compounds in the human body. As it's cruising by the inside lining of the artery, it starts to irritate the artery. It actually reduces the arteries [4:11] elasticity and can even cause it to constrict. So think about this. You've got 63,000 miles of blood vessel, roughly, in your body. It doesn't take much narrowing to drive pressure up. narrowing to drive pressure up. Think about it. 85% of all hypertensive diagnosis, diagnosis of high blood pressure, primary hypertension or essential hypertension are idiopathic, right? Unknown origin. Only 15% of them are secondary hypertension of where we know the exact cause. And so what we do is we take people that have high blood pressure. We run a bunch of tests on them with EKG, it's normal, EEG, it's normal, heart and lung sounds, cardiac cath, I can't trust study. We do all these cardiovascular tests and they all come out normal, yet the person still has high blood pressure. And that's largely because the high levels of homocysteine [5:04] are causing vascular narrowing. I mean, this is a fixed system, right? So if I make the pipes smaller in a fixed system, pressure goes up. So in Dana's case, specifically, and he's throwing his blood work out on the internet, so we can talk about his labs. But in his cases, he had one of the highest levels of home of cysteine that I've personally ever seen in our clinical team at C. So when you say high blood pressure, could you define, like, I'm not good at that. Whenever I get my blood pressure, they tell me the number and they say, it's good, I go, okay. So, I don't know what's a good number. So, 120 over 50. What's high? 130, 140, 150, 160. When does it get dangerous? 140, 150 starts to get dangerous. People walk around it, 140, 150, 160 all the time. And they don't know it. It's the silent killer. You don't feel it. You think you would feel high blood pressure, [6:01] but very often it's the silent killer because you don't feel it. It's not like you hear your blood rushing in your ears, although you may. It's not like you feel pressure in your head or pressure in your neck or pressure in your chest. That's why high blood pressure, high pretension, is one of the silent killers in cardiovascular disease. In fact, one of the first primary symptoms is sudden death. We often put people on high-pertensive medication before we actually look at whether or not they have high levels of homocysteine or whether or not they might have a gene mutation specifically called MTR, and you could test for it, or MTRR. And what this gene codes for is it codes for the enzymes that break down homocysteine and turn it into an amino acid called methionine. Right? And so if this conversion is impaired and this homocysteine starts to rise and your vascular system constricts, it can drive your pressure up and it drives [7:03] your pressure up without anything being wrong with the heart. So then we start standing on the heart, which is what happened in Dana's case, beta blockers, calcium channel blockers, diuretics, all of these things. His blood pressure was still through the roof. The lowest is number. I think he was 160, 160 over 110. I want to say it was very high. And it was consistently high. Well, we were actually, you know, our clinical team was taking his blood pressure two or three times a day, seven days a week, and it was consistently very elevated, even though he was on blood pressure medication. Really? So, statins? So, what he was on? So, statins, what you'd use on cholesterol? Like a repath or anything. So, whatins, what you'd use on cholesterol? Like a repath or anything. So, what is it like? What's a hypertension? They're called beta blockers, like enderol, calcium channel blockers. We call it asinhibitors. Sometimes we use diuretics. And so, he was still jacked up even though he was on those. [8:00] Oh, he was still jacked up even though he was on medication. And what are the other factors? What are other things cause hypertension? Well, I mean cardiovascular disease, and there are certain, you know, direct genetic links to cardiovascular disease, but they're very rare. But diet, atherosclerosis, you know, narrowing of the arteries are arterial sclerosis, hearting of the arteries, calcifications, and the arterial wall can cause pressure to go up. Regurgitations in heart valves can cause pressure to increase. When you think about the heart as a muscle, all four chambers are circulating blood normally and it's got a good vascular supply, but it's beating into constricted pipes. Think about what happens. That pressure is going to back up. And so we rarely go outside the heart to diagnose whether or not. And for the record, I am not a physician. I'm not licensed to practice medicine. I'm a human biologist. I didn't learn my trade in medical school. I took eight years of undergrad and postgraduate education in human biology. [9:04] But for 20 years, I was a mortality expert in the insurance industry. years of undergrad and postgraduate education and human biology. But for 20 years I was a mortality expert in the insurance industry and I just read medical records for a living. So the vast amount of what I've come to understand about modern medicine has just come from reading thousands and thousands and thousands of medical records. And you can see very often that when people were being diagnosed with high blood pressure, they were always looking at the heart. They never looked outside the heart to say, could it possibly be beating into a dysfunctional arterial system? So in Dana's case, and I should have brought the numbers because I had the week over week numbers, it was astounding, we just put them on a simple amino acid called trimethyl glycine. In amino acid, you can get off the shelf. And what it did was it made up for this genetic deficiency, this lack of code to break down homocysteine. And his body started to methylate to break homocysteine down. And is this amino acid that pretty much everybody should be taking? [010:03] It's an amino acid that everybody with hypertension should consider if they have high homocysteine. And say the word again, what is it with the amino acid called? Tri-method glycine, TMG. Is that a capital T capital N? Similar to regular glycine. No, this is tri-method glycine. It's a little bit different than the amino acid glycine. So trimethoglycine will actually help to metabolize, to help give the body the raw material it needs. So I guess you're right. That should sound different. I'm going to write down trimethoglycine. He's going to be on trimethoglycine tomorrow. Well, I just want to keep track of all these different things you're saying and oftentimes I do forget. So try methodically. Try methodically. Just put capital TNG, that's what it'll say on the bottle. TNG, okay. And so, you know, sometimes I use the analogy that, you know, when I was getting my second human biology to create, I was in grad school, [011:00] I get my human biology degree. I had to take all these plant botany courses, which I hated, but you have to take them morphology, ethalophytes, and all these crazy courses about plants. But the one thing that really stood out to me by taking all these plant biology courses is that if there's anything wrong with the leaves of a plant like the tree, you know, the trunk leaves or the branches, and you call it true arborist or true botanist out to your house, they won't even touch the leaves or the branches of the trunk of the tree. The first thing they'll do is they'll courtess the soil and they'll go, you know what, this soil's deficient in nitrogen. And then they'll add nitrogen to the soil and the leaf will heal. But we don't think about human beings like this anymore. I feel like there's such a positive understanding of deep human physiology in a lot of the medical community, not all of the medical community. And we don't actually have faith in mankind in humanity and the body's ability to heal itself. And whether or not they might, someone might be deficient in a raw material, not pathologic [012:02] or diseased. So for example, in Dana White's case, he was diagnosed with idiopathic hypertension, which essentially did not have. He was being medicated for it. He had been medicated for it for 15 years. And he did really have hypertension. There was nothing really wrong with him. It's that his body couldn't break down homocysteine. It was deficient in the amino acids needed to break this homocyste system down. As soon as we put those back in his body, it started to function normally. And where would you generally get those amino acids if you weren't taking them? Um, I mean, you can get them online. I mean, there's lots of great things. No, no, if you weren't taking them, is it, uh, they, in food? Is it, oh, yeah, they're, they Diet's they're high in dietary folate, leafy greens, grass fed meats, eggs, dairy. You'll find that they have lower incidences of cancer diets in high dietary folate. So this is a raw material that we can get from our food. [013:02] But very often our food is just so nutrient deficient. Right? We update the macros on the back of a lot of labels, but if you look at the microbes, like how much spinoch, how much iron is in spinach, or calcium is in spinach, or how much nutrients are on the label of most foods, I mean, it's a fraction of what's actually listed there. And so we're nutrient deficient, right? Human beings are not as sick as we have been led to believe we are. The majority, in my opinion, of pathology and disease as we know it today are nutrient deficiencies, missing raw material in the human body. And we just accept all these things as a consequence of aging, waking, water retention, you know, lack of sleep, poor focus and concentration, lack of waking energy, hormone imbalance. And we think that the body has all of these different pathologies and diseases, but the truth is it's usually nutrient deficient. It's astounding what happens to human beings when you give their body the raw material that it needs to do its job. [014:01] I mean, it really is. And so if you're just supplementing for the sake of supplementing, then there's only a marginal chance that you're getting what you need. If you're supplementing for deficiency, that's when magic happens in the human body. But you have to understand what those deficiencies are and you have to code to someone like yourself that you don't have to come in. I mean, there's lots of people who do genetic tests. But some of them might have to test yourself. Yeah. That is going to understand how to read this stuff. Because if you talk to me and said, what's the cause of high blood pressure, I would probably say someone's fat. They're overweight, they eat too much, maybe they drink too much. Yeah, those are very obvious causes. Type 2 diabetes. being morbidly obese, matelorosclerosis, or tears. What are the other factors that could be obesity? Oh, obesity, stress, sleep deprivation. Oh, stress and sleep deprivation. My level of record is all interesting. So sleep deprivation, stress, morbid obesity, [015:02] type 2 diabetes, atlerosclerosis, arterial sclerosis, but those are usually more sinister and visible. You know, there are a lot of healthy looking individuals in their 20s and early 30s that are walking around with hypertension with high blood pressure and don't know it. There are a lot of young healthy looking individuals that are walking around with metabolic syndrome, which is a combination of very high blood fat, triglycerides, abdominal fat, high blood pressure, high insulin, and high sugar. But they don't manifest to the outside world, but it's going on on the inside. That's why I say I think everybody at once in their lifetime should do a genetic methylation test. And the reason for that is that you do this test once in your lifetime. You never have to repeat it. The genes you're born with or the genes you die with. And based on there's five major genes of methylation, based on how these five genes are working or [016:01] not, you supplement for their deficiency. So for example, one of the most common gene mutations in the world is called MTHFR. It's called the motherfucker gene. Stands for methylene tetrahydrofolate reductase, but we call it the motherfucker gene. This gene is estimated to be compromised in somewhere between 40 and 60 percent, depending on the study, 40 to 60% of the population has this gene mutation. And what this gene mutation does is it interrupts the ability to convert folic acid into the usable form called methylfolate. And while that might not sound like a big deal until you realize that folic acid is the most prevalent nutrient in the human diet. Folic acid, by the way, is an entirely man-made chemical. You can't find folic, we've been lied to about folic acid. I mean, it's entirely man-made and synthetic. You can't find folic acid anywhere on the surface of the earth. It does not occur naturally in nature. Folate does, but we make folic acid in a lab. And then what we've done since 1993 is we've sprayed all of our greens, [017:06] all white flour, all white rice, all white bread, and grains of any kind, are sprayed with this chemical folic acid. It's called fortified or enriched. So when you spend a box of crackers around it says fortified whole wheat flour, or enriched bleached white flour, that means it's been sprayed with folic acid. Well, 44% of the population can't convert that into the usable nutrient. Why do they spray it with folic acid? Well, I mean, without going down the whole road of conspiracy theory, you look at the same pharmaceutical companies that produce folic acid and you look at some of the downsides of having a synthetic form of a vitamin like folic acid in the diet and how it's correlated to higher incidences of ADD, ADHD, OCD, manic depression, bipolar. It's correlated to poor gut motility, mood imbalance, anxiety. [018:02] And because when you put this raw material into the human body if you can't metabolize it you can't methylate it into the usable form. First of all you now have a deficiency in the form your body needs and in excess in the nutrient you can't process and this causes things to go haywire. So instead of folic acid and what does your body try to do with that? So instead of folate, it's folic acid, folic acid. And what does your body try to do with that? So your body tries to convert folic acid into, eventually into something called methylfolate. There's a few steps in between tetrahedral folate, dihydrypholate, but essentially folic acid and folate, which you can find all over the surface of the earth, gets converted into the usable form called methylfolate. Now, this is one of the most commonly utilized methylated nutrients in the human body. It helps down-regulate neurotransmitters. It helps improve the intestinal motility of our gut. [019:03] It helps degrade thought. It helps to actually break down catacolomines, which are phytophytinurotransmitters that can actually stimulate thought. And so people will go a lifetime eating white bread, white flour, white rice, white pasta, breads and cereals of all kinds. And they're reading the label and they're like, wow, it's fortified, it's before the fight or enriched for 44% of the population Means you can't break that that nutrient down This is why there there's a lot of evidence that getting folic acid out of the diet Has immediate behavioral changes. I mean if you're a parent and you're listening to this podcast and it's a full-contact support to get your kid in the car to go to school in the morning and you're listening to this podcast and it's a full contact support to get your kid in the car to go to school in the morning. Look at what you're feeding them. The standard American diet is going to be like a pop tart, a white bagel, a bowl of cereal, right? And all of those are fortified with full of acid. Well, there's a 44% chance your kid can't process that. And you're amping them up in the morning. It can literally be like cocaine for a six-year-old, right? It could make their mind race. So now this kid gets up, and he goes to the breakfast table, [020:08] and he has a popped heart, he has a white bag, or he has a bowl of cereal, he dumps all this folic acid in the body, and now his mind starts to ricochet. Right? And it's a full context sport to get him in the car, and then by the time they get to school, the calls coming home saying, hey, little Johnny can't pay attention. He doesn't focus. He can't concentrate. He doesn't follow directions. He can't pay attention. Get him on Adderall. Get him on Adderall, Riddle and you know, essentially, what that does is it says, all right, well, if the mind is racing, then let's put it in and fetamine into the body to race the central nervous system to match the pace of the mind, which is a horrible solution. How about we just quiet the mind, right? Because in our brains, we don't just create thought, right? We also dismantle thought. We break thought down, right? We transfer methyl groups from neurotransmitters [021:01] and break them down so they no longer have an effect, right? Or else you'd always be in the same mood. So when we start creating thought at a faster rate than we break thought down, we call this ADD or ADHD. But it's not an attention deficit at all. In many of these cases, it's an attention overload disorder. It's too many windows open at the same time. Right? So if we're opening too many windows, now all of a sudden we can't pay attention. It's not that the majority of people with ADD or ADHD lack the ability to pay attention, because they actually can hyperfocus. They lack the ability to pay attention to so many things. Right? So you know, you're thinking about a job you're working on and your friend walks up. You're thinking about a job and you start talking to your friend and you notice a logo on your friend's jacket that reminds you of a vacation you want to take. So, you know, you're thinking about a job talking to your friend, looking at the logo, thinking about a vacation you want to take all at the same time. And why is this? Because very often it and it's because you have slow breakdown, slow methylation of neurotransmitters. So thought comes in, and now all of a sudden, [022:08] we're like, this kid, get paid attention. This guy's all over the place. If you look at the link between that simple gene mutation, MTHFR, and it's incidence in, it's incidence in stroke, cardiovascular disease, its incidence in ADD and ADHD and OCD, you'll find not a direct causal link, but enough of a prevalence to say why wouldn't we just take folic acid out of the diet, add methyl folate into your shot at correcting the course of these conditions. So folic acid, when did it get introduced into the human diet? 1993 is, I think, when the federal government signed a deal to spray our entire grain supply with folic acid. I want to say it was 1992 or 1993, and I forget if it was Monsanto, I forget the pharmaceutical [023:04] company that convinced the US government to spray our entire grain supply. But before that date, like you ever notice when you go to Europe and you eat bread in Europe, you don't feel like shit or you go to Italy and you have a bowl of pasta and you're like, man, normally when I eat pasta, I feel like shit. It just sucks. Okay, that's because it's not sprayed with folic acid. Really? Because I had always been told that it's heirloom grains and that the wheat that we have today has been modified for higher yield for smaller acreage. Not in this more complex. Genetically modified, first of all, the GMO foods. Italy banned GMO foods. Russia actually, it's a felony to grow genetically modified foods. So GMO's aside, and that's another thing. I mean, I tell people you got to get GMO foods out of your diet. Right? We did genetically modified seeds to increase yield. We modified seeds to be resistant to glyphosphate, right, to poison and pesticides. But if you go back to the folic acid and seed oils for that matter, but if you go back to the folic acid theory [024:06] If we stopped spraying our greens just just for 30 days Don't even stop eating white bread white flour white pasta white rice Or greens if that's what you eat. I don't need any of those things But it but if that's what you eat don't stop eating them just switch to the organic those things, but if that's what you eat, don't stop eating them. Just switch to the organic, non-fortified, non-enriched version and watch what happens to your mood, your focus, your concentration, your short-term recall, the depth of your sleep, and your waking mind at night. But the vast majority of wheat and rice and things that you do by will have been enriched with full accounts. All of it in the United States is unless it's organic. Wow. So if someone's buying a sandwich and you're getting it on regular bread, you're just getting a heap of full of gases. Getting a heap of full of gases. Bowl of pasta, you're getting a heap of full of gases. And rice that's not organic, heap of full of gases. And your body's like, what the fuck is this? Your body's like, what the fuck? Just be it, pay attention to your mood [025:06] after you eat high amounts of some of those things. Oh, I believe me, I'm very aware. Mm-hmm. It's my first one. Number one weakness. My number one weakness is bread and pasta. Like, if I do go off the rails with a dial, like I have a cheat day, that's what I cheat with. Okay, so try next time you go off the rails eating non-fortified, non-enriched pasta, white bread. Well, I have absolutely noticed that when I've gone to Italy. Yeah, 100% notice it. That's why. It just seems normal. It does, like, you know, I hear about a lot of people that have gluten now, or drinks, and gluten intolerancesances and now I'm wondering like what does that mean? Well the foods contain gluten very often the foods contain folic acid. 44% this happens to pregnant women too right? You know postpartum depression which for the record can begin before the pregnancy is over sometimes they get slaughtered online for saying oh you're talking about postpartum depression before the pregnancy ends yes the diagnosis of postpartum depression [026:02] happens very often before the pregnancy before the pregnancy is carried to term. So 44% of women have this gene mutation What's the first thing their OB-GYN tells them to do when they get pregnant? Take high doses of folic acid. Well, 44% of them can't process this folic acid So what happens? Why do they tell them to take high doses of folic acid? Because they're told that folic acid prevents neural tube defects, which is patently false. Folic dose acid doesn't prevent anything. And that folic folate prevents neural tube effects. They told to take it in supplemental form. Are they told to take it in formal foods that are sprayed with folic acid? They're told to take it in supplemental form. If you look at the majority of cheap prenatal vitamins, right? The good ones, thorne, pure encapsulation, some of these, you know, really good big brands. They will have methylated versions of vitamins, right? They'll take the folic acid out. Right. Because what happens if you're pregnant? You have this gene mutation, MTHFR. Number one, you have a skyrocketing incidence of miscarriage. But then because you don't have [027:03] the methyl folate that your body needs for the adhesion of the egg and to implant into the uterine wall. But now she's pregnant and she starts to take a prenatal vitamin with 1,400, 1,600% of the daily allowance of folic acid, she starts to go nuts, develops postpartum depression. Eventually the pregnancy ends, she stops taking the prenatal vitamin and the symptoms go away, but she still blames it on the pregnancy not on the vitamin. Whoa. The truth is, I have yet to see a peer reviewed published clinical study linking pregnancy hormones to postpartum depression. Is there a benefit to taking methylfolate? Is there a huge benefit to taking methylfolate? And how do you get methylfolate? So you buy methylfolate. You get the you get methylfolate? You buy methylfolate. You get the methylated form of that nutrient. This is why I say if you if you look at five particular genes, MTHFR, MTRR, MTR, AHCY and compT, dude if you find that you have [028:03] one of those gene mutations and you supplement for their deficiency, magic things will happen in your body. You know, because if you have that, for example, there's a gene mutation called COMT, catacletal methyl transferase. And you know, we all know people that are suffering from anxiety. If we haven't suffered from anxiety ourselves, chances are we know somebody has suffered from anxiety ourselves, chances are we know somebody has suffered from anxiety. And if you really break down what anxiety is, a fear of the future, we have to understand that it doesn't require the presence of a fear for us to feel fear. Right, so you could drive home tonight and pull into your driveway and when you get out of your car, somebody's standing in front of you with a knife. Right, so that's a real fear. Right? Your pupils are going to dilate. Your heart rate's going to increase. Your extremities are going to flood with blood. You're going to start to have a fight or flight response. Mainly because an area of your brain has dumped catacolamines, fight or flight neurotransmitters into your brain. Boom. Now you could also be laying on the 30th floor of a condo in bed, and you [029:06] could just start thinking about getting eaten by shark. And the chances of a shark, and now the ocean are coming up a 30th floor elevator, right, are zero, but you can have the exact same reaction. So how is it that I can have the same reaction to the presence of a real fear as an entirely perceived fear? Because it doesn't require the presence of a fear for these excess catacolomines to leak into the brain. And this is the why the majority of anxiety that we have seen in our practices that my clinical team treats is coming from our physiology. It's not coming from our outside environment. In fact, if you ask most people that suffer from anxiety, three questions. If you say, have you had it on and off your entire lifetime, they'll say yes. There's your first sign that's genetic deficiency. And then you say, well, can you point to the specific trigger that causes it? They'll say, most of the time I can. [030:01] There's your second sign that it's not coming from their outside environment. And then the third question is if you've ever tried anti-anxiety medications, have they worked? The majority of the time they'll say no, it just makes me feel like a zombie. That is very indicative that this is a nutrient deficiency and not a mental condition. We have a lack of... Oh, yeah. So, do you encourage people to take methylfolate as a supplement? Absolutely. I encourage them. I think everybody should- Everybody should- It's weight-dependent, but methylfolate about 800 micrograms a day is usually sufficient. Unless- You can take it with or without food. It's a non-water soluble vitamin. Unlike vitamins A, D, E, and K, which are actually fat soluble, that you need to take with food for them to be absorbed, you can actually take those even on an empty stomach, as long as you're not taking it with a bunch of other vitamins that cause you to be nauseous, because it changes your stomach pH. I think every single person should be at a minimum on a methylated multivitamin. [031:01] The basic raw materials that your body needs to perform the process of methylation, because methylation is how we create neurotransmitters, right? I mean, we make serotonin from taking trip to fan and amino acid and methylating it into serotonin. We make dopamine from phenylalanine and tyrosine. If you can't make these conversions, you have certain deficiencies. And yes, you can have deficiencies in neurotransmitters, which will lead to the expression of a mood disorder. You don't have a mental illness. You just have a lack of mental fitness. And this is why I think that we're so quick to say that we have pathology and disease or dysfunction. And then we go to chemicals and synthetics and pharmaceuticals. And I'm not anti-pharmaceutical, but I'm saying is before we diagnose somebody with a mental illness or an autoimmune disorder or with an allergy or a sensitivity or irritable bowel syndrome or any number of other conditions, we should ask ourselves [032:01] what raw material could be missing from their body that could be causing this to happen, right? I mean, like when I was in the mortality space, you know, for 20 years, you know, I was reading medical records, just horrific voluminous amounts of medical records. I would see simple nutrient deficiencies, get misdiagnosed as autoimmune conditions, more times than I can even remember. So for example, you'd have people go into their primary care physician and I would look at their medical records for 5, 8, 10 years. Sometimes we have more than 10 years of medical records and I'd say, man, this person has single digit vitamin D3 levels. Like, they are so clinically deficient in vitamin D3. In vitamin D3, it goes from about 30 nanograms or desolate or to 100 nanograms per desolate or 60 to 80 is the perfect range. But chronic deficiency in vitamin D3, the sunshine vitamin, right? The only vitamin, by the way, the human beings can make on our own. I think it's arguably the most important nutrient in the human body. In fact, it was the second leading cause of morbidity in COVID for people that are deficiency. And it's also why we said that COVID [033:05] disproportionately affected minorities because there's a higher incidence of vitamin D3 deficiency because of the pigment of the skin. But we would see these deficiencies in vitamin D3 that have gone on for decades. Now all of a sudden the patient is going into their doctor and saying, Doc, I wake up sore and aching in the morning, like I had to work out the night before when I haven't. Souls in my feet, my ankles are sore when I get out of bed in the morning to walk to the bathroom. My knees and hips really bother me lately and you know what? Just this past few weeks it's kind of hard to make a fist. You would be shocked how many family medicine practitioners go, you know what Joe, you got rheumatoid arthritis. I'm going to hit you with some high dose prednisone. I'm going to put you on something called a corticosteroid. You're going to be fine. Well, we knew in the mortality space that if you started corticosteroids, you had six years and one day until you're having a joint replacement. It was so accurate that if I saw you were misdiagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and started a corticosteroid, I would artificially advance your age six years and one day and I would schedule the joint replacement. [034:07] And then what I would do is I would model the reduction in what we called your ambulatory profile. How well you amulate and how well you move because sitting is the new smoking, right? Sedentary lifestyle is the leading cause of all cause mortality. And so as I reduced your mobility, I would bring in all the diseases that exacerbate with reduced mobility. So now if you rewind that, you had a simple nutrient deficiency in vitamin D3, colic calciferol. You were diagnosed with a condition you did not have put on a medication that wasn't required, which led to a joint replacement that wasn't as how does How do these corticosteroids, how do they ruin your joints? How does that happen? So eventually what they do is they upset the balance inside the joint, the synovium, the protein balance inside of the synovium of the joint. So initially they act, initially they act as any inflammatory, right? [035:02] They reduce the inflammation and you actually feel a little bit better. It's like cortisone. Repeated cortisone injections have ended a lot of professional athletic careers, probably throw them on time, I'm being the biggest, but that's why we try to reduce the amount of cortisone that we actually put into athletic injuries now. But what is the mechanism? How does it do that? It becomes cytotoxic to the joint because it interrupts the protein metabolism in the synovium of the joint. And so what happens is the joint begins to dry out and the friction surfaces become less lubricated and then begin to contact one another. And as they contact one another because this protein is broken down, we rare the friction surface away and you get down to anchor cartilage, which we call bone on bone, and there's a lot of nerves there, and you start to get a lot of joint pain. So corticosteroids will also, like methyl trexae, they also block and interrupt the ability for the body to convert folate to methyl folate. They artificially give you the same condition [036:07] as this gene mutation, which is why one of the biggest side effects of corticosteroids is gut issues. Because methyl folate is involved in the motility of the gut, you now start taking a corticosteroid and it shuts your gut down. And by corticosteroids, are you talking about prednisone? Like what are the ones that they're putting on? Prednisone, methyl prednisone, and other oral corticosteroids. That's a friend who had gout and they put him on prednisone. For short period of time, you know, in the acute inflammatory stage, it's okay, but to take prednisone systemically for a prolonged period of time, you're going to start to hear that he starts to get low back pain Then he well first of all I'd be very surprised if he doesn't have got issues right now if you ask him Hey, do you do you notice the incident of gas bloating diarrhea? Constipation here at the moon and cramping kind of going up when you started those corticosteroids You'll go yeah, my guts are freaking mess. Mm-hmm, you know [037:06] Constipated sometimes and I, and I get diarrhea, sometimes I blow up like a tick. So to take it back to Cortezone, so if someone has an injury, would you advise them to never take Cortezone? Is it occasionally okay? Occasionally, it's okay. I think most orthopedics now are trying to get away from repeated injections of Cortezone other than at the inception of the acute injury. Because I know a lot of athletes, you know, they'll get a horizontal shot if they have to perform. Yeah, I mean, if they have to perform, but remember that's also going to cause, you know, ligamential centenine dyslexity. You know, it's actually can be cytotoxic to those, to those tissues. It's cytotoxic to fibroblasts, which are the little cells that are embedded in those tissues that actually help promote healing, right? Because there are cells in injured tissues that are essentially through the inflammatory process, calling platelets to the site of an injury, right? Which is one of the ways that we heal. We call platelets to the site of the injury. [038:01] The platelet itself is kind of useless, but it has growth factors inside of it. When it arrives on site, it bursts, it drops off the growth factors, and now you start this healing process, which is one of the reasons why PRP works so well, you know, play the rich plasma. You're taking all the playlists from the body and you're concentrating them into a site of injury. Right. It's why, man, I used to love PPC157 until the FDA just came down on it. What the fuck is that about? Fuck, dude, it just... Why did they do that? You know what's astounding is I read that whole report and it wasn't for safety reasons, right? It wasn't because of the reporting of massive amounts of anaphylectic shock or hospitalizations or overuse or somebody having some kind of illness or effect or hospitalizations or overuse or, you know, or somebody having some kind of illness or a fact or, you know, shock because of it, it was because of the lack of safety data, which is another way of saying it hasn't been paid to be put through full blown, you know, FDA clinical trials, [039:00] which no one's gonna do. So is that maybe BBC 157 impossible to get now? It will. Yeah. And, and a whole close factor. It's so effective. I mean, I can't even begin to tell you how many thousands and thousands and thousands of patients. My clinical team is put on BBC 157, never with an adverse event into a so good for the gut. It's a gastric pentadeca peptide. It's, you know, it's actually synthesized from gastric juice. So it's actually tolerated very well orally. I've started to see it orally, which I never really saw before. I always thought it was injectable, but I see it advertised as orally. Well, sight injecting it to the sight of an injury, like if you have a lateral epiconolitis or something you injected to that site of injury is very good, right? It'll localize there and kind of help call platelets to that location. But it's also extraordinarily good for leaky gut. So people that suffer from flammatory conditions of the bowel, urinal bowel syndrome, Crohn's disease, diberticulitis, those sorts of things. [040:01] You know, BPC 157 can be just a game changer, because it is tolerated well. And they're going to get rid of it. They're going to get rid of it. Those motherfuckers. I know. These motherfuckers. It's fucked up. You know, there are amino acids. There are amino acid sequences. I mean, same with growth hormone peptides. You know, well, some 1295, MK677, Ibuda moron, these growth hormone peptides that kept people off of exogenous growth hormone that worked with the naturopathics of ketian release of growth hormone, that helped lots of older people fight sarcompenaage related muscle wasting with virtually no side effects. By the way, Somorlin, I think, was first FDA approved in 1983, if I remember correctly. So you know, these things have been around for decades. We have lots of safety data on these and thousands and thousands of patients without a diverse event and we're going to have to drop it. And so do you think they're doing this because they want the drugs to go through the safety [041:03] protocols or do you think they're doing it because they see that people taking peptides limit the amount of pharmaceutical drugs they take. Well, I think it's a little bit of both, right? I mean, the question is where is the impetus coming from? Is it coming from the impetus to protect the public? Because if you're trying to protect the public, then why would we look at the... Yeah, the public because if you're trying to protect the public, then why would it look? Get it open. Yeah, I mean, those are still available. Yeah, look at the addictive amyloids in opia. So look at the side effects of, I mean, the whole serotonin hypothesis and depression has been disproved but we still put people on SSRIs for depression. You know, serotonin reuptake inhibitors Right? Which is another, by the way, thing that methylation helps to fix. It's not that all depression is related to methylation, but the prevailing theory when I was in the mortality space was that if you were low on serotonin, you were by definition depressed. And I was like, well, if the serotonin hypothesis were true, honestly, give about this back then, and now it's [042:02] been disproven, then if low serotonin were depression, then why wouldn't we just raise serotonin? Why would we put people on a selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitor that just rations or slows the uptake of serotonin rather than increase the supply of serotonin? Like with 5HTP? Like with 5HTP, with like turning methylation back on with five-influpholate with the complex of B vitamins. Reducing urinary catacolamines are associated with anxiety and depression, and you can reduce urinary catacolamines with simple supplementation, B complex of methylated vitamins. Methylated folate, sometimes something called SAME, esodenosolmethyne. These are generally harmless amino acids and methylated vitamins. That people just need so their body can perform its duty, so it can perform its job. You know, like I work with people all the time that come in and they're like, [043:00] man, my god is a mess, Gary. You know, I've had irritable bowel syndrome or I've had you know, Crohn's disease are diverticulitis or I have intermittent and gloting and constipation and irritability and cramping. And, you know, and I look at their allergy test and they're like, man, I'm allergic to all these things, wheat, soy, corn, dairy, blueberries, bananas. I'm like, okay, let's slow this down. Let's just take corn, for example. You say you're allergic to corn. Is there ever a time that you can eat corn and not have a reaction? They go, yeah, sometimes I can eat corn and not have a reaction. Okay, then you're not allergic to corn because allergies are not transient. Allergies are consistent. So if you can sometimes eat it and sometimes not, you're not allergic to it. You don't have a sensitivity or an allergy. You have a gut motility issue. It's the most overlooked thing in all of bariatric medicine, in my opinion, because we stop thinking of the gut as a conveyor belt. Right? It's like, remember, having read 40, he wasn't made famous for the automobile, he was made famous for the production. Yeah, for the assembly line. Right? [044:00] So the assembly line was just a glorified conveyor belt. You put a part on it at one end and it's kind of traverses the assembly line. You know, every few feet, somebody just tinkers with the part, tinkers with the part. And by the time it reaches the end, it's fully assembled. With a human and testicle track, there's no different. Right? It's just a glorified conveyor belt. It's 30 feet long. We put contents on it at one end a stomach in a very acidic environment, and as it traverses the gut it generally becomes slightly more alkaline than it exits the rectum. That sequence of events is very important. Right? If Henry Ford just walked into his factory one day and doubled the speed of the conveyor belt, what would happen? The entire line would break down. Nothing wrong with the conveyor belt, nothing wrong with the part on the conveyor belt, nothing wrong with the people working there, nothing wrong with the food, nothing wrong with the bacterial flora. It's not it. It's not gust, gut dysbiosis. It's not improper flora. It's not analogy. It's not a sensitivity. It is a gut motility issue. And you change the motility of the gut. You get all of the outcomes that look like food sensitivity, food allergy, you know, bacterial [045:10] flora being off and then people start shoveling down probiotics and they get all this allergy testing and they go on these restrictive diets and it doesn't seem to help because they haven't addressed the motility issue. Methylfolate, complexopoeid vitamins, very often we'll give your body that the raw material it needs to restore that parasitic activity. And then you can get off the proton pump inhibitors and the thoms for the acid reflux, which is now you know screwing things up down down the line. So you know again, I always come back to this theory that we should always look at the soil before we diagnose the disease of the pathology because it's very little to lose by saying what nutrient deficiency could this person have that could be causing this condition to exist. It's like when people come into our clinics for hormone therapy, you know very often we don't put them on hormone therapy, just put them on nutrients to support healthy hormone therapy, [046:02] right? I mean if you have low vitamin D3, low DHA, and high protein in your blood called SHBG, your hormones are going to be off. Free testosterone is gonna be clinically deficient. Test also will probably also be low. And you don't need hormone therapy. Your endocrine system hasn't failed you. Your body just doesn't have the raw material it needs to do its job to produce those hormones. So, you know, I really wish we would stop or we would start going back to studying human physiology and saying, what could we put back in this body so it could perform optimally? I really think magic things happen to human beings if their body just has the wrong material needs to do its job. And most people don't. And most people don't. But vast majority of people are nutrient deficient. They're nutrient deficient, but they don't know what nutrient third efficient. They don't know what these five genes tell them. And they don't know whether or not they should be supplementing with methylfolate, [047:01] avoiding folic acid, whether or not their sleep is related to their gene mutation. So for example, if you have the gene mutation comp T, you have one or two types of sleep patterns. You lay down tired to go to sleep. So your body tired, but your mind is awake. And so what happens is your environment quiets your mind wakes up. And these people, if you if you ask them, what are you thinking about at night? They'll tell you it's the most innocuous little nonsense. It's like, did I get everything on my grocery list today? Did my belt match my shoes? You know, did I return it at Instagram? It's nothing that couldn't wait till the next day. Right, so why does the mind wake up at night? Because we are releasing these catacoleumines into the brain. We're not breaking them down at the right rate. So our mind is awake. Cataclet, oh, methyl transferase, this comp tea takes those excitatory neurotransmitters and it breaks them down. This is why things like magnesium and zinc and SAME work so well to help people sleep. They're not actually sleep aids. They're [048:06] methylation aids that help you break down neurotransmitters that create that waking state. And this is why, you know, those same people will say, you know, I work really well under pressure, right? Well Physiologically when you tell me you work well under pressure it says you're saying to me well I lack the ability to set priorities internally So I use external pressure to set my priorities for me Well, what if you didn't have to rely on that extra stress? Right what if you're what if you didn't give equal weight to every thought that came into your mind? What if you weren't laying a wake all night thinking about what color dishes you'd use for Thanksgiving Day party and you'd lay down and actually just went right into a deep delta wave of sleep? I mean, just thinking the impact that would have on the balance of your lifetime. And you may be one simple supplement away from that. [049:02] I have never thought of it that way. I'm gonna be honest with you. I've never thought that thinking would be connected so inextricably to diet deficiency. No question, because it's, but because what is thinking? It's this very often, it is this release of these catacoleumines into the brain, a fedron, nor a fedron, epinephrine, dopamine, one of which we call adrenaline. And so you don't need a massive dump like a fight or flight response. You just need to have them rise and not be able to break them down at the right rate. If someone has a very hard time going to sleep at night, like what would be a good supplement for them. Sam E magnesium 3 and 8. What would it say? E S a Denysol Methion E S a M capital S a M little E so Sam E S a Denysol Methion E I'm gonna read this down to you Now that I have a heart, I don't have my wife does that she yeah,? Yeah, she's a heart, I'm gonna sleep. I can sleep on. [050:05] Did I shit to this before of a moving train? I'll look at, do a cheek swab on her and I'll tell her exactly what she's deficient. Sam E. Okay. So, esodenum somathyonine, it's very commonly, it's one of the most highly required methylated nutrients in the human body. We also make SAME, you know, eventually homocysteine breaks down to methionine and then eventually, as adenosomethionine, which goes into the brain and helps quiet the brain. And so we need certain raw materials, methylated nutrients to perform certain basic functions. Right? Remember that the majority of our neurotransmitters are right here. I think 90% of the serotonin in your body is here. If you don't have it here, you can't have it here. So rarely do serotonin imbalances start here. They usually start here. And so by taking a methylated multivitamin, which is very simple to get, methylated folate, [051:01] complex of B vitamins, semi-trimethoglycein, if you have high homocysteine. You have a shot at feeling the difference between good and great. I mean, I think most people are walking around right now at about 60% max of their true state of normal. They just accepted such an erosion of their baseline sense of normalcy. They've forgotten what it feels like to be normal. They're like, I'm just supposed to not sleep that well. I'm supposed to get a great idea in the bedroom, walk through the kitchen, and wonder what the hell I'm doing in the kitchen. You know, I'm supposed to have this little bit of weight gain or water retention around. I'm not really supposed to be responding to exercise in my 40s or my 50s. And none of that is true. None of that raw material. In the human body. Wow. So for people that suffer from anxiety, what would be the thing? So if you wanted to look for some sort of a genetic component to these people having anxiety, what would you look for? [052:02] I would first highly suspect metapholeate deficiency. Now if there are anxiety If you sit down with them and they say no, I haven't had it on and off throughout my lifetime. Okay, when do you get anxiety? Okay, I'm claustrophobic every time I step on a crowded elevator I get anxiety. That's different Right or I'm afraid of heights and every time I walk to the edge of a 30 floor balcony and look over I get massive anxiety Right, that different. What I'm talking about. Fairly normal. That's fairly normal, right? These situational anxieties, but generalized anxiety, idiopathic anxiety. The logical anxiety. Theological anxiety. You know, all these conditions that people are told they have, right? And then they're taught coping mechanisms. I am by no means against, against therapy or counseling. I think those can be some of the most beneficial things that anybody does. There are signs of strength. But the majority of what we teach people to do with anxiety is cope with it. Here's how you deal with it. You breathe. You learn to get a therapist. You avoid certain situations. [053:00] You modify your lifestyle. We rarely say, why don't we supplement for the breakdown of catacoleumines, phytoflight neurotransmitters, which are associated in urinary excretions with anxiety? Why don't we supplement for the proper breakdown of catacoleumines and just see what happens? And you watch people's anxiety of this rate. Magnesium, calcium, gluconate, hydroxycobalamin, this specific form of B12. You know, when you take a complex of V vitamins, a certain form of B12, methylcobalamin, hydroxycobalamin, methylfolate, and you put it into these bodies, and they start breaking down cataclysmines for the first time and getting rid of them. They made for the first time in their adult lifetime be anxiety free and be like what in the hell did I wait so long for? Wow. So the complex of B vitamins, if someone's looking for a complex of B vitamins, like what specifically [054:02] does it have to have in it? Periodoxine, riboflavin, spell that paradoxine, how do you spell that? P-Y-R-O-D-I-X-I-N-E, periodoxine, and it's a form called periodoxyl-5-phosphate, but periodoxine, riboflavin, phyamin, niacin, panathenic acid. Now, if you look at a B complex, it should contain all of those things. It bivorture of the fact that it's a B complex. If you go to a good vitamin manufacturer, you should see that their B complex is paradoxine, ribophilic, thymin, niacin, panethinic acid, and then you'll see little, certain forms of it. The one thing you wanna avoid like the plague in the B12 category, and I get a lot of shit for this, but is a form of B12 called cyanocopelmine. How's it about that? CYANO, CO, B-A-L-A-M-I-N. [055:08] Cyanocobalamin. Can we pull something up on here? Sure. Can you go Google? Because before everybody climbs all over me and says, it's basically it's a cyanide based form of B12, right? Rarely occurs naturally in nature it's it's you know the the most bioavailable forms are called methyl cobalamin hydroxy cobalamin and a dentisol cobalamin but oh are we gonna be able to see it or yeah oh okay just go to Google and put in cyanocobalamin CYANO okay cyanocobalamin and then put a space and put the work pub chem. So I'm just going to take you to the National Library of Medicine. Just click on that first link. So I'm going to take you to the National Library of Medicine at the National Institute of Health. You can go here, we're on the [056:01] public chemical site and you can look up this form of B12. You see how it says cyanocobalm and B12? Can you scroll down to section 5.3? So if I want to see the component compounds, like what is this made out of? I can go right here to section 5.3 and I can look at its component compounds. Can you click on Hydrogen Sinide? So this is a flammable acute toxic health hazard and environmental hazard. By the way, this is the most common form of B12 in the world. We put this in flinchstone vitamins. We put it in all kinds of vitamins. The body can't even use this. It has to be converted into hydroxychobalamin. It's astounding that we're allowed to do this, because in the US we use something called single dose toxicity to determine whether or not something is dangerous for you. People that say things like the dosage determines the poison, that is pathetically nonsensical because nobody gets mercury poisoning from a single, you know, a laubled dose of mercury. Nobody gets chemical poisoning from a single, small dose of a chemical. [057:02] But let's go down here and go to view more at the bottom. So just read that sentence right there. See, hydrogen cyanide is a highly toxic. See that? Yeah, highly toxic congi-late, conjugate acid of cyanide that is used as chemical weapon agent. What? Yeah. It's scarab 12. It's scarab 12. Colorless gas or liquid. What? So if you're taking B12 supplements and they have that in it, you're getting this. You're getting that. And you're essentially taking poison. Essentially, you're taking cyanide base B12. The argument is it's not enough cyanide to cause harm, right? So which I agree, but there's safe levels of mercury. There's safe levels of fluoride. Our water is full of fluoride. Our toothpaste is full of fluoride. But if you look at the fluoride studies in 3600 municipalities around the United States, there's an inverse relationship between the concentration of fluoride and an IQ. Yeah. As fluoride goes up, IQ goes down. Yeah, we've talked about that in the podcast recently. We're trying to figure it out. Like what the fuck is Flora doing in the water? It's a neurotoxin. Right? It actually, I think it was [058:10] originally Flora hexane, which actually was a byproduct of fertilizer production and they realized that when they kept the Flora hexane in the fertilizer, it killed the seed. So they pulled it out and they wondered, well, what the hell are we going to do with all this Flora a vaccine, well, I guess we'll convince water municipalities to put it into the water because there's a marginal amount of evidence that it can create a nano-particular layer over the enamel and it could potentially prevent tooth decay. But you should just brush your teeth. Or you could just brush your teeth. Yeah. It's a standard. Well, I'm describing that I said it's like putting sunscreen in apples because some people get cancer. So you should just every apple should have sunscreen in it. Right. It's really that dumb. It is that dumb. And you know when you look at it, I was like, I was looking at the back of some of these, I did a post on this the other day. I was looking at the back of these [059:00] two-page labels and it literally says to call Poison Control if you swallow it. BORAH! Two-pests. It says if swallow contact poison control. Oh my god. But you get four times that dosage in eight, eight ounce glasses of water in a day if you drink tap water. And so one of the things I tell people to permanently get out of their life besides GMO foods is tap water. Like, today should be the day that you never drink tap water again. Right because I was trying to listen to New York City. Like New York City has the best tap water. I said shut the fuck up. You should never drink that shit. And I was trying to explain to him about fluoride. And it goes in one ear out the other. You sound like a cuck. You did fluoride. It's bad. fluoride's bad for you? What? Florida's bad for you. Florida's associated with low IQ. Do you know the higher the dose of fluoride and the drinking water, the lower the town IQ is for real? Yeah. People go, gear up, come on. Why would they do that? Yeah, it's an neurotoxin. Right. But why are they still dumping that? Is it just some sort of a predatory relationship, the fluoride manufacturing. Well, we now think of the position that you're in. You're in municipality and like, well, guys, [1:0:06] we've been giving you this fluoridate of water for 25 years and it's a cancer-causing neurotoxin. We're going to go ahead and pull that out. Imagine what that would damage public panic. But that's real. It's absolutely real. You know, I got sensitive all over seed oils are bad for you. What I did say was industrial process seed oils are bad for you. If you put a canola plant in a commercial press and it comes out gummy and then you take that gummy canola plant and you digum it with hexane, which is a no neurotoxin. Then you take that degummed oil and you heat it to 405 degrees and turn it rancid. So now you're rancid neurotoxic oil. And then you take that rancid neurotoxic oil and you deodorize it with sodium hydroxide, which is a known carcinogen. And then occasionally you bleach it so you clear the liquid, then you bottle it and put it on the shelf. [1:1:00] That is horrible for you. In fact, that's a problem with the majority of our food supplies that it's not the food itself. It's the distance from the food to the table. Right? I mean everybody vilifies meats, but if you like a grass-fed meats versus an industrial raised cattle, they're night and day. They're completely different cow cows. So with seed oils, what happened? You got censored on Instagram? I got fact check. Fact check. Yes. If you go to my Instagram and it has that little blank page. Can you go to that? I want to see this fact check. Because these fact check motherfuckers are horrible. Oh yeah. So go to my at Gary Breckah and then you go to my reels and it's about 20 reels down. You'll see the little clouded fact check thing they put over top of it and it says False information see why and then you have to click through and it says Food grade seed oils are not toxic for human beings experts say I'm like well, I'd love to debate that expert [1:2:01] Really can we go to that Jamie? What would the posts say what is the post post? Well, it's going to say false information. It's going to be kind of like post that you wrote. What does it say? What does it look like? You can find it just seed oils. Yeah, see it recently. It's probably a few months ago now, but it's still on there. Just go to my Reels, not my stories. You'll see it on there. I wish you know a few saw it. Yeah. Yeah. They're keep on down down down down down down. That's right around here. Keep on. Now that's that one they didn't catch. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. They wonder how they do catch it. I don't know either, man. I don't know how these fat. Okay. Now we're getting into it around here somewhere I keep on has a little get gone it's pretty obvious when you see it because it's cloudy and the image itself is cloudy yeah like you're like fuzzy it's fuzzy image out interesting yeah [1:3:01] is that it right there no that's not the you see on I don't know if it shows that way on the web maybe Interesting I think it's that far Yeah, I'm pretty far back now. Yeah, all right. Keep scrolling up. You probably won't pass it But you'll see they put a thing over top of it. Oh, I don't know if that happens on the website version of Instagram Well, I'm sure they fact check it on there too Now it's not gonna be in the old 10 year and stuff. Scroll down a little bit Jimmy. Let me see. Okay, it's about maybe two, three months ago. Well, this one. So it's before that one. Yeah, before that one. They haven't catch that one. Five months ago. Here's before that one. So it was before that. Yeah, it was before that. Okay. This is even in six months ago. I'm just very curious. Yeah, no, I want to show it to you too. The experts say, these are my reels yes sir okay keep going down because it was on a podcast I did with [1:4:08] the friendly perfect demeanos yeah seven eight months ago flight travel stuff keep going maybe push down further yeah you see I can find it on my phone if I have my phone. That's what I'm saying. But I'll show you on the website. It's okay. Yeah. But they blank it out and it has a little thing over it. And then it says false information, CY. And then it says fact checkers say seed oils are not bad for human beings. Yeah. I've seen people argue that too. And I'm like, what dose is in for how long because they're ubiquitous, they're in everything. So many people are consuming seed oils, and they really are industrial lubricants. Right. They essentially repurpose them for human use because they had a bunch of it laying around. So true. Chris go. Yeah, and it's not good for you by any stretch of the imagination. So when they said that seed oil, [1:5:01] are there any seed oils that are okay for you? I mean, a certain cold process seed oil. I mean, I eat olive oil. I think you need oil, but olive oil is like, you don't think of that as industrialized seed oil. No. And you have to watch that too. Sometimes they'll put palm oil in. Are you coming on the phone? It shows that. Yeah. So they see it. It says fact checker leads stories conclusion false. Fact check grade, canola oil is not toxic for humans, experts say. That's the link. That's it. Experts say. But see how they have that, that blank cover there so you can't even read it. Right. You can't go through it. See how my face is all blocked out. Well, there's a lot of things that I follow that have that, unfortunately. Yeah. You got it for a little while. Yeah. it's wild now. It's so crazy. It really is wild. It's so crazy. I mean, there's so many corrupting factors that are changing the way people have access to information. Yeah. And they're not getting access to accurate information. They use that fucking appeal to authority experts say, what experts? Please put this expert off. [1:6:01] They be off of the same experts that the sugar industry fucking bribed in the 50s to tell people that saturated fast bad for you. Because to this day people still believe that. It's wild. I just did an explanation of what the mRNA vaccine was. I didn't even attack the mRNA vaccine. I just explained to people because people didn't understand it. Now, yeah, false information. See why? Reviewed by independent fact checkers. By the way, that's horse shit. There's no independent fact checkers. They're not independent. No, that's right. It's horse shit. They have a fucking mandate. Okay, so click on that so you can see what you're saying. Power's half flower. Yeah, some flower seeds aren't good for you. These seed oils are terrible, man man if you actually saw how on something like a canola oil was processed right i mean when they actually first make canola oil the oil comes out very like thick and gummy so this is what you just described yeah just like that yeah the gum the sundub but none of this that you're saying is not true no when you click see why what where's it take you Jamie it doesn't [1:7:04] well when you say, so why? So why? It just says that. That's all it says. False. It just says false. Fact check, food grade can oil is not toxic for humans. Not in a false element. Oh, they hammer false elements too. It's called grade canola oil for toxic for humans since it starts with the seeds of a rape plant? No one's saying that. By the way, it's not a rape plant, it's rape seed oil. No one calls it the rape plant. I know, seeds have a rape plant. That's so crazy. No, it's not true. In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration, which by the way, has never been known to be corrupt, which sets food regulations recognized can oil's safe for human consumption. Furthermore, a Tufts University Nutrition Scientist told lead stories, this who is this fucking person? You just a Tufts University Nutrition Scientist? Scientists? Yeah. Told lead stories there's no basis for the claim that food grade canola oil is unsafe for humans to consume. [1:8:01] In fact, evidence suggests that canola oil may benefit heart health. The claim about cannola oil's toxicity appeared in a video posted on Instagram to summer 25, 2022. In that video, an unidentified on-camera narrow. It's hard to tell. Cannola oil is toxic. Here's how it's made. So it tastes that, that, that, that, that, that, there's Paul. look at him, looking guilty. Looking guilty. The claim that canola oil is an old canard. In 2019, for instance, lead stories debunked a claim that canola oil causes brain damage to mention weight gain. In January 4 of 2023, email to lead stories Alice H. Lichtenstein, director and senior scientist of the Cardiovascular Nutrition Laboratory at Tufts University of Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, emphasize that claims that food grade canola oil is toxic for humans are untrue. [1:9:00] There's no basis on which to claim that any canola oil on the market contains uric acid or the oil extracted in any way that is different from other plants such as soybean oil. So what are you getting at this? Look, canola oil is made by a process of chemical refinement called RBD refined bleached deodorized, which involves the use of hexane, which is what I was just talking about. A volatile solvent with low toxicity. Okay. Refined bleach dendiotorized. And it's been used to extract oils from sea since the 1930s. Right when people started catching cancer like quicker. Yeah. This article canola canola canola canola canola canola canola canola canola canola canola canola canola canola canola canola canola canola canola Canada. Two things I don't trust. The Canola Council and Canada. And Canada. Seed oils are first crushed to express the oil and the seed oil is extractive from low boiling solvent, like hexane deodorizations that file stuff. Whenever you have to fucking deodorize food, like what are you doing? That's not an armpit. It's salad dressing. Exactly. Why are you all doing it right? [1:010:05] By the way, it's hexane. Unknown neurotoxin. Yeah. We just use a little bit of it, right? And this is, this is the thing that we do in this country. We have something called, we have come something called single-dose toxicity, which means that, you know, if this capsule has a certain amount of arsenic in it, but it's not enough to cause a toxic reaction that I can still give it to. But it's the cumulative dose toxicity, most European countries use, which is why there are dozens of compounds that are legal in the United States that aren't legal anywhere else on the surface of the Earth. They're certainly not legal in Europe. They don't use full of gas in Europe. You know, you say in a co-villamin actually saying a co-valoment I'm not sure if I'm saying that. Jamie, we have to move you up. I know. Do we have to move you up? I'm more interested on like how a small website like this becomes the verified fact. I know the verified fact. They get paid. They get fucking paid. The cuddle-of-the-loyal society declines. Yeah, like there's so many of these websites that are in cohorts with big businesses. It's horse shit. [1:011:05] These independent fact checkers are not independent and they're not checking facts. They're just spewing propaganda. Well, it's astounding too that you can actually be from the Kenola Society defending the Kenola facts. It's hilarious. But really it's hilarious. And again, same as with fluoride. So, you know, these, it's all of these little microtoxicity that are adding up. I mean, when you look at cellular metabolism and how it's interrupted by all of these microtoxins, one of the reasons why people, when they go on certain types of dietic, a carnivore, die experience such a dramatic improvement in health is because the majority of what's happening is they're removing a lot of these toxic chemicals. Makes sense. Improving their mitochondria. By the way, should we change the name of rapeseed? I know. Do we have a murder fruit? Exactly. Why are they calling it that? How is it the same thing as canola? [1:012:00] Like a domestic violence seed. Right, because you think of canola you think of corn yeah palm corn All son flower sounds great. Yeah, but rape seed but all of those seeds safflower or safflower oil Sunflower or sun seed oil sunflower seed all those seeds are bad all the seeds are all those seed oils are bad Not that sunflower seeds are bad for it, but those seed oils are bad due to the process, due to the hexane, due to the odorizers. Yeah, the polyunsaturated fatty acids, I mean, this is what causes the oxidation, you know, in cholesterol, you know, can toxicize it and actually starts the atholorescorotic or to, you know, process, it starts the, the placking and the scarring and it actually makes these, you know, turns them into free radicals. So you're seeing that seed oils themselves cause the placking? Seed oils themselves cause the oxidation of cholesterol, which leads to the placking. You know, the cholesterol really gets vilified, right? I mean LDL cholesterol. I mean, there's very little evidence linking LDL cholesterol on its own to cardiovascular disease. Now, there are some apoliproprotein A, apoliproprotein Bs. But when you look at your blood work [1:013:06] and you see that your LDL cholesterol is marginally high, you know, let's say that it should be 99 or less and you're 109 and they say, well, you should go on a stat. I mean, marginally elevated cholesterol, when we were in the mortality space was a marker of longevity. At the time, what we would do is if you had low levels of triglyceride and you had marginally elevated LDL cholesterol and high HDL cholesterol, the high density liberal protein, we would actually extend your life expectancy. Really? We would extend your life expectancy. If you were clinically within these certain margins, if you were very low on cholesterol, like your LDL cholesterol was clinically pushed down. Remember, cholesterol is not a fuel source, right? It's the body can't use cholesterol for energy. It's a construction material. So we used to build every cell wall. We used to build cell membranes. We used to make hormones. It's a very necessary construction material. [1:014:05] And it gets vilified because it's at the scene of a lot of crimes, but it's not pulling the trigger, right? I mean, a more dangerous measure would be to have high cholesterol and very high triglycerides, because then you start to reduce the particulate size of cholesterol. So remember like from high school geometry, as the size of a sphere gets smaller, its surface area to volume ratio goes up. And so a lot of these small particular cholesterol are very dangerous because they pass through the arterial wall, they get eaten by a macrophage and they start this process of scarring. But just having elevated levels of LTO cholesterol was a marker for longevity in the armortality space. So are there foods that when combined with high levels of dietary cholesterol, like is there things that you should not eat while also consuming high levels of dietary cholesterol and they work together in a negative way? [1:015:04] Yeah, I mean I'm not aware of any link between dietary cholesterol and serum concentration of cholesterol. Only 15% of the cholesterol on your bloodstream comes from diet. 85% of the cholesterol on your blood is manufactured by the liver. So if you want to lower your cholesterol, we have to lower what we put into the front door of the liver. If you put high glycemic carbohydrates in the front door of the liver, you will likely get not just high triglyceride, but also elevated levels of cholesterol out the backdoor. So elevated levels of cholesterol and high triglycerides are the problem to stuff together. Yeah. And that comes from diet as well as sugar. Sugar. Yeah. I mean, sugar is the enemy, right? I mean, so, you know, people that eat the most sugar have the highest blood fat. If we go back to Dana White for a second, he had a life threatening level of triglycerides when he was fasted. His triglycerides were around 800, which is very fasted for a fasted state. [1:016:03] Yeah, when he was fasted. And what was the likelihood he was eating. Yeah, it's fasted. And what was the legal news eating? Oh, I can't imagine. But he also ate a lot of refined carbohydrates. Yeah. So now, you know, this syndrome called metabolic syndrome, which is showing up in younger and younger and younger ages now, right, is this combination of, you know, abdominal fat, high triglyceride, high blood fat, high insulin, hyperinsulinemia, high levels of sugar, which is called hemoglobin A1C, the three-month average of your blood sugar, low HDL cholesterol, healthy cholesterol, and high blood pressure. If you have any two of those five, you have metabolic syndrome. He had all five of those five in a really bad way. And you know, it's a very hard concept for him to understand too that you have a, you know, this kind of life-threading level of triglyceride. So we're going to put you on a, um, on a high fat diet to bring your blood fat down. [1:017:02] Right. Right. We're going to try to put you into a state of ketosis so your body starts to use beta-jaxi butyrate and fat as a fuel source. So we can actually drive the triglycerides in your blood down and everybody you know they hammered me and they're like oh I don't have 10 million dollars to spend on a program like that. I'm like you it was it was a 10 week 12 week keto reset. You know peptides yes, hormone balance. But all the fancy equipment, the red light therapy bags, the IMAX oxygen, the PMF, all those things you can get for free by just, you know, going out in sunlight, grounding, and learning how to do breath work. Well, most people don't give it the credence that it deserves because it's free, right? It's like, you know, most people don't even want to take a cold shower, much less get into a cold plunge. You know, most people don't want to wake up with a sun and take their shirt off and go outside and expose it to natural sunlight. Most people don't want to take eight minutes and do breath work. But if you just added those three things to your morning routine, you'd change the entire trajectory of your life. [1:018:03] And you really would. You really would. You really would. I try to tell people that all the time. If you got 125 grand or 150 grand line around and you want to buy the top red line red light bed, you want to buy the top of the line coal plunge and you want to buy a PMF mat and you want to buy a hypermax oxygen system then buy all of me. It's because those do work. They'll make it convenient for you because all they're doing is bringing the best of what the mother nature has from the outside and bringing it in. What is the best red light bed? Is there, is I have one of those ones that you stand in front of? You know, what is that? What's the June? June for all of. Yeah. Is that good? Yeah, so they're good, but you know the millawatts of a radiance between all the beds that we tested We actually make we partnered with the Vinci Medical and Theralite 360 to make one of the most powerful red light beds on the market It was a call it's called the 10x 10x How's it going 10x [1:019:01] Health red light bed made by Theralight 360. Pull that up, Jamie. Cause I've always wondered, just go to 10X health system, I barely use it on you. I think it does something. I feel better when I use it. Yeah, that's it. That looks like a fucking spaceship. It does. So that's got 45,000 light diodes. That's 123 grand. Geez Louise. By millawatts of irradiance, it's one of, if not the most powerful pet on the market. So what happens with this thing? What's the benefit of this sucker? So there's certain very specific. Look how you just buy with shop. Why'd you buy it? Do you have a fucks got that kind of critical? I know. Well, this is what I get you from online all the time. So before everybody starts killing me going you got a by 123,000 light bed. Right. You know, you can, you know, just add to your morning routine exposing your skin to sunlight and getting out in first light and doing breath work. But that sounds like it's a lot better. Oh, this is incredible. I mean, so if you look at the wavelengths of light that are really therapeutic, the 680 to 720 nanometers, 810 and 940, There are other wavelengths, but those wavelengths in particular will do some very, very special [1:020:08] things. Not only will they help improve collagen, elastin, fibrin synthesis in the skin, so red light therapy is actually very good for your skin. The longer you use a red light therapy bed, the more kind of youthful appearance you'll take on. Ooh, youthful appearance, young Jamie. You know you want that. Kind of stay young. But the real magic happens in the mitochondria. And how often would you use something like this? I use mine 20 minutes a day is often. Every day. Every day if I can. Because I went to this place that was a hyperbaric chamber place, but they had a red light bed and I was using it quite a bit, but they said you can't use it every day. I don't see any evidence that you that overexposure to those therapeutic wavelengths of red light is detriment. Why would they tell you not to use it every day then? I have no idea, because they'll tell you to use it every day if you have an injury. And I'm like, well, does it not harm you when it have an injury? And it only harms you when you don't have an injury. I mean, if you got a little more sunlight exposure one day and had the same nanometers of [1:021:08] wavelength passing through your skin, did you do damage on the days that you had slightly more sun exposure? Because the real magic of red light, when there's a lot of magic to red light, these reduced inflammation increased my cardiovascular circulation, but really what happens inside the mitochondria. I have kind of a saying that the presence of oxygen is the absence of disease because during my 20-year career in the mortality space, we did not find a single disease-e dialogical pathway that did not have its roots in a lack of blood oxygen or specifically was not exacerbated by a lack by by hypoxia. Right. And if you think that we all die the same way, right? I mean, every human being leaves the sirth the same way. We all die of hypoxia, lack of oxygen to the brain, but it's just what causes that to happen, right? [1:022:01] Is it a gunshot wound, a boss of stroke, you know, heart attack. But the truth is that this level of oxygen management in the body is a measurable thing. You're either using oxygen very well and therefore you are slowly approximating the grave or you're using oxygen very poorly and you are accelerating towards the grave. So for example, when you look at how human beings are truly powered, right? Like where do we really get our energy from? It's really one energy source called ATP, right? And it's produced inside this little organelle called the mitochondria. There's about 110 trillion of these in your body, 10% of your body weight is mitochondria. And the mitochondria has a voracious appetite for oxygen when it receives oxygen. It will create 16 times more energy. It will produce 36 ATP rather than 2 ATP. So imagine a little mitochondria that has a motor inside of it called the Krebs cycle. And every time this motor makes one revolution, it has two choices. [1:023:02] It can either create two units of energy, 2 ATP, or it can create 36 units of energy, 36 ATP. The difference between a 16-fold increase or 16-fold decrease in energy is a presence of oxygen. And so if oxygen enters this cycle, right? It produces 16 times more energy. It puts out water and it also puts out carbon dioxide. If there's no oxygen present, it only produces two ATP and it releases lactic acid, which by the way, doesn't make your muscles burn, but it releases lactic acid. So when you're used to red light bed, one of those wavelengths of light actually goes through the mitochondrial wall and it goes into this motor, it goes into the crebs cycle and it actually kicks out a gas called mitochondrial nitric oxide and forces oxygen to dock. There's a little place in this motor called cytochrome sioxidase. [1:024:01] Cytocrom sioxidase is like a one-arm man. He can either shake hands with oxygen or he can shake hands with nitric oxide, but he can't do both. So if I can get him to let go of nitric oxide and grab oxygen, I can get a 16-fold increase in mitochondrial output. Whoa. So that's what happens with red lights. And you get that from sunlight as well. Is that something that you get from sunlight exposure? Just not at the depth that you would get from a red light bed. This is why I'm saying that if you're on the budget for a red light bed with the majority of people don't, the benefits of getting first light in the morning are so much more astounding than you think, but because it's free people don't, you know, they don't think of it as important. Yeah, I don't think of it as important. Yeah, so this will go a few inches into the skin, 360 degrees around. If you look at photobio modulation and the treatment of Parkinson syndrome, like using red light therapy on the skull for neurogenic disorders and [1:025:00] neuroinflammatory conditions, if you look at arthritic conditions, and all kinds of inflammatory pathologies in the body and the impact of photobio-modulation, it is astounding what light does in the human body. And when, what is the difference between what that does and what one of those juvenile does? So it's the millawatts of irradiance for one, which is the power kind of how strong it's being pushed. Whether or not you can regulate the hertz, 528 hertz, 5,000 hertz, 1,000 hertz, this is kind of the frequency of the light. And then there's the different wavelengths hitting you at the same time. You generally find therapeutic wavelengths between 680 and 720 nanometers, specifically 810 and 940. Those are the ones that have the most clinical research on them. They're also extraordinarily safe. And so I think it's actually FDA approved for the skin and certain eye treatments, but [1:026:01] I'd have to go back and check that. But I think it does, red light does have an FDA approval. But laying in red light therapy every day, if you do that for a month, even if you did it 10 minutes a day for 30 days, at the end of that month, you would notice a profound and material change in your performance. Really? That's why this red light beds at the, you know, the UFC performance are. But the ones like a Jewves is like a how much less powerful. I would say juve is good, right? So it's something. Full body red light therapy is best. We already know it's effects for wound healing, collagen, fibroin, lacedine, inflammation reduction, the improvement in microvascular circulation so like in your eyes, liver, lungs, pancreas, kidneys, brain, that photo biomodulation is very good for neural inflammation. And because of the way that it upstages the mitochondria, just think you got 110 trillion mitochondria in your body. [1:027:01] If you could power those mitochondria up, if you could get a 16-fold step up in cellular energy, just think of the amount of extra waste elimination repair to toxification that you could cause. And is it dangerous to your eyes? Because then one of the things about those light beds, they make you wear eye goggles. They make you wear eye goggles, and probably shouldn't say this on the podcast, but I mean, I don't. You don't? I will open your eyes and stay there. I will. I'll open. I'll open. Right at the light. What? Yeah. It's not bad for your eyes. You watch what happens to your vision after a week to 14 days of being in a red light therapy bed without eye protection. Really? If you don't have a marked improvement vision of you very surprised. So what is the negative aspect of why do they tell you to cover your eyes? Well, because you know, I guess the bright light of your staring directly at one of those lights, if you have some kind of photosensitivity or damage to your rods or your cones, your macular, your retinomy, if you had eye pathology, which you would know about, then there might be some some downside consequences. You just lay there and stare at that fucking right at the light. My eyes wide over. I'm 54 years [1:028:06] all done aware. Well, 53 years old don't add a year to my life. But and I don't wear reading glasses or anything. A small font on my phone. I do. I do. You know, yeah, my shit started falling apart at like four years four 45 did it I really started noticing. But I started taking I've just to define out what happens after you're in that red light spot. I'm down, let's go. I started taking a pure encapsulations. I love those guys. Yeah, macrosupport. Mm-hmm. And I stopped the degradation of my vision. It hasn't gotten worse. Great. Yeah, so it's not the best, but my font's not that big. Yeah, I can read that pretty easily. I can read websites. I don't need glasses, but when I use glasses, I definitely see things much better. Yeah, I mean it helps. Juve website says, only when you're at one setting, do you need the eye protection for their new earth devices? [1:029:02] You don't need it. The newer generation 3.0. So what is it say? The wavelength only eye protection is not required and maybe beneficial. From maintaining the sky. I'm glad they're doing that. Yeah. I'm glad they're doing that. But the Juve, they don't make one that juices you up the way yours to us. No, no. That's 125 milliwatts of radiance more powerful than anything on the market. I think the next bed has maybe 15,000 light diodes. There's 45,000 light diodes in that bed. Okay. So one of the diodes are made by Astrid. The other one is great. Yeah. So Juve does something for you. It's not bad for you. It's good for you, but it's not fantastic for you. But again, start with sunlight. His skin exposure. Right. exposure, right? Huberman talks about that all the time. Yeah, sorry, I'm a huge fan of that. Yeah, he's the best. Yeah, he's the best. Yeah, and he's just also made this kind of science so much more accessible to people. Yeah. And it's still, I mean, just blowing my mind all the things I'm learning from you, which is just, Thank you. I've been learning this stuff for so long, but that's part of the problem is so difficult to like maintain this information in your head. [1:030:07] No, to keep it. And I know I want to get it to the masses. Like, you know, I don't want my like social media and podcasts and state talks and things like that for me to be speaking to my peers. I feel like the woke biohacking crowd has enough woke biohackers that are doing a great job out there that So many needs to just talk to the masses There's a bunch of fucking grifters in that woke biohacking crowd. Yeah, there's a bunch of unhealthy looking douche- Yeah, that's crazy. Just selling nonsense. Yeah, I know a few of them and I know they're frauds Really? Yeah. Yeah. There's a bunch of fucking people that are just sort of Reiterating shit that people like you have actually done research on. They say it wrong sometimes, switch things around, it fuck things up, because they don't really have an education in it. But yeah, their business is selling you products that are supposedly beneficial. Oh gosh, there's a lot of these. That's why I always try to like every, [1:031:01] I'm like, look, here's things you can do for free, right? I mean, yes, I only supplement line. You can buy my supplements, but peer encapsulations are great supplements. Thorne and Thorne is a great supplement. I would rather people take the information and put it to work in their life than, you know, buy my ebook card. So the number one thing, probably number one thing is, let's start from the top because we've got a great list of stuff. Get rid of full of acid. Get that shit out of your diet. Get rid of full of acid. Number two, if you can afford it, get a genetic methylation test once in your time. How much does one of those cost? About five, six hundred bucks. Oh, okay. Six hundred bucks to do it through me, but it's and you'll do it once in your lifetime. You don't have to do it through main. There's other great companies, but do it genetic methylation tests. Give five specific genes looked at, MTHFR, MTRR, MTR, A-H-C-Y, and CO-M-T. And you do this for a cheek swab? You do it with it. You do it with it cheek swab, you swab your cheek, you put it in a little test tube, you send it to the lab, and then the results come back to you. For the balance of your lifetime, [1:032:06] you will never guess on what your body is deficient in, right? Because you will know what it can methylate and what it can't. And then just start supplementing for the sake of deficiency, not the sake of supplementation and step back and watch what happens. Forget all the fancy Amazon roots and rare supplements that only one company has that they patented and trademarked and it's a secret to optimal health. Because by the time you get way down the road to all of the, I would say, enhancement type supplements like I'm a huge fan of NMN, I'm a massive fan of risk veritrol, stem cell stimulatory supplements and things like that. You've got to cover the basics. You got to get to foundation right. The soil has to have the right nutrients so the body can perform its basic functions. Then you can start targeting things with misalized tumoric and corkumin and MN and you can start taking creatine to help with muscles. [1:033:01] You can do all of those additional things. But to get the basics, where does the rubber meet the road? What does this tree need to grow and survive? And then what can I do to make it thrive? Okay. Because I think a lot of people are skipping that step. They're just not doing the basics. They don't have just a basic morning routine, a basic free morning routine. So they actually lack a lot of confidence in themselves. And I use that David Goggins method of stop negotiating with yourself like discipline is better than motivation because a lot of mornings you know you wake up and not motivated. But you just say okay here's the four things I'm going to do. I'm going to wake up. I'm going to try to wake up with the sun. But I'm going to wake up in the morning. I'm going to do eight minutes of breath work, I'm gonna expose my skin to sunlight, and I'm gonna touch the surface of the earth. Just those things right there, just earthing, grounding, breath work, and sunlight exposure, which cost you zero, zero, and zero. What is grounding? Like why does that do anything? So if you look at, you know, [1:034:01] when you contact the surface of the earth, you actually discharge into the earth. You're talking barefoot, barefoot, right? If so, bare feet touching bare soil. Or I think grounding is a very real thing. So when you touch the surface of the earth, you discharge into the earth. So what does that mean? You actually change the surface polarity in the body. Remember that pH stands for potential hydrogen. It's a charge, right? So we know that being slightly, it's the pH range of the body is very narrow. It's probably four tenths of a point, five tenths of a point, the pH of the blood. And the way that we become more alkaline contrary to popular belief is not by drinking alkaline water. That's one of the biggest marketing myths ever sold to the public. You cannot change the pH of the blood by changing the pH of the water that you put into the stomach because it's buffered. So alkaline water's bullshit? Well, I mean, it's good because it's filtered, but it's bullshit that it won't, that it will change the pH of your blood. That's complete nonsense. So I think the best kind of water you can put into the human body is hydrogen water by a landslide, right? I mean, if you're going to drink spring water, drink mountain valley, but if you, by the way, don't have any deal with mountain valley, [1:035:06] you have no particular reason to push them. But if you can, hydrogen water by all of the clinical studies, probably 1400 published peer review clinical studies on hydrogen water, more than any other type of water on the planet. And, you know, there's a whole class of bacteria in your gut called hydrophiles. You can actually increase the absorption of all of your nutrients in your... So I just want to get hydrogen water. I have a link to the one that I use on my Instagram, the name of it. But I think it's the echo, echo water filtration. So it's something that you have to do at home that converts your water to hydrogen. Well, you can add hydrogen to your water when you're done. I actually have a little hydrogen bottle. I'll bring you one. It's, and you fill it with, you know, your bottle water and you just hit a little button and it adds hydrogen ions to the water. I never travel and never go anywhere without it. I got it with me in your studio here. [1:036:02] And the benefits of hydrogen water are, so you put hydrogen ions into the water. So it not only feeds the hydrofiles in your bloodstream, but it will improve your, it will improve the absorption of nutrients and supplements in your stomach. It actually helps enzymes further break down. They complete what's called this lock and key method in your stomach. The studies on hydrogen water and neuroinflammatory disease and chronic inflammation are astounding. I put them all on my Instagram so people can actually just go and click through them and read the conclusion sections of these. But if I again could drink only one type of water, it would be hydrogenated water. You can't overdo it with hydrogen water either. Seconded that would probably be spring water, like a mountain valley spring water. And then after that, I would look at the alkaline waters and some of these other reverse osmosis. And so, just hydrogen water thing, [1:037:02] this is only something that you do with a process once you have spring water. This is not something that you do with a process once you have spring water. This is not something you can buy already hydrogenated. You know, I have seen, I haven't personally seen the studies when there's a lot of hydrogen water companies out there and I don't have an opinion about them one way or another because I never actually tested them. So everything that I like speak about or plomalgate, I've usually third party tested myself and I'll experiment on myself too. So like, I'll go into a red light bed and say, okay, if I lay in this red light bed and it's supposed to release nitric oxide for my mitochondria and throw it into the serum my blood, well then if it's actually working and it's increasing the nitric oxide in my blood, I should be able to test that. So I would get nitric oxide saliva test strips and I would put it in my mouth and then I would get in before I got in the bed. And I would see that it was like a pale pinkish color. And then I would get in the bed for 20 minutes and about 10 minutes after I get in the bed, I'd test it again and see that it was like a dark blood red cavernet, Cabernet just showing that my nitrocoxide level spiked. I'm like, okay, now I can see that the claims that this [1:038:06] was making is having a physiologic response. Because there's no way for my nitrocoxide level to spike. I didn't supplement with it, I just laid in the bed. I do the same thing with these PEMF mats, these pulse-electromagnetic field mats that run low-gouse current through the body. Supposedly, what they will do is those change the surface polarity of yourself. So if you like, or to prick your finger and put it on a slide and look at your blood under a microscope, you'd see that most of your red blood cells are kind of stuck together and clumped up, right? They're sort of traveling around the bloodstream impacts, almost like too many cars trying to take the same exit. But then when you run a low gas current through the body, like contacting the surface of the earth, when you're asking me what does grounding do, you contact the surface of the earth or lay on a PMF mat. And when you're done, prick your blood again, put it back on the same slide, look at it on your microscope and you'll see all your red blood cells have separated. And they no longer can touch. Because on the surface of the red blood cell, you have a charge. And if they surface of cells have the same charge, they can't touch. [1:039:11] As soon as they get opposite charges, they attract. Right? And wherever they attract and touch and clump up, you lose that surface area. So now waist elimination, detoxification, repair, all of these things are impeded because the cells are clumped up. If you just walked on the surface of the earth, you would see the changes, physiologic changes in your blood. Try it, don't take my word for it. Just, you can get a microscope online for about 400 bucks, you get dark field, something called dark field, and you can put your blood on a slide and watch what happens after you've been sleeping all night before you go out and touch the surface of the earth and then prick your finger 10 minutes later after you come in or 10 minutes after you get off a PMF net. And what is more beneficial PMF mat or the grounding of the earth? I think they're about equal. The problem is that most people just don't have the time or they'll wear with all the touch of the surface of the earth. You know, they're in Michigan or Canada or it's dark when they leave in the morning, [1:040:05] dark when they come home in the morning or they live in a condo high rise or they're in New York City. It's hard to find actual dirt grass sand that you'd want to walk on without hyperderming needles and dogs. So I live in downtown Miami and you know, in the mornings I would take my elevator down and walk across the street, take my shoes off and I called it four corners. It was a little park across the right next to the American Airlines arena downtown with a heat play and I would just walk the four corners of that park. You know, in the morning with my shirt off, just getting sunlight and doing some breath work. I would go back inside, do my mood, my emotional state, my energy, everything through the roof and then take a cold shower. That's it. I mean, most people, you know, again, not the super ultra woke biohacker, but the basic humanity we have, you know, we have subscribed to the fact, our eyes subscribed to the fact [1:041:00] that aging is the aggressive pursuit of comfort. I really think aging is the aggressive pursuit of comfort. I really think aging is the aggressive pursuit of comfort. The more aggressively, pursue comfort, the faster we age. And so most people just don't want to wake up in the morning, expose their skin to sunlight, do a little breathwork, ground touch the surface of the earth, and then take a cold shower. None of which would add a penny to their budget and would absolutely change the trajectory of their life. And then as you get more money, then you can add a red light therapy bed. You can add a PMF mat and you can do a cold plunge and start to really amp up the benefits of these things. And when you use a PMF mat, it has the same effect as grounding on here. That's the same effect as that. I mean, you're losing money on it. Yeah, if you lose a low-gouse PMF mat, low-gouse current, it has the same effect as lying on the surface. Do you lay on it naked? No, you actually just put it underneath your... You put it on top of your mattress. It looks like a yoga mat. Okay. And so you plug it into the wall, you put it underneath your mattress, and then when you go to bed, you hit two buttons, and for 30 minutes it will run a low gas current through your body. And just wait on it. [1:042:05] You'll wake up alkaline every morning. Every morning that you wake up all of your, your red blood cells will be repolarized. They'll all be slitting around in your bloodstream. You'll have all that surface area for waist elimination, for repair, for detoxification, for exchange with the serum of the blood. So healthy for you. And if you don't want to drop the money on a PMF mat, then wake up and take your shoes off and touch the surface of the earth. Right? I mean, I think if you look at some of the, you know, the ancestral books on mankind, you'll see that we were really designed to spend more than 85% of our time outside. We spent 95% of our time indoors right now. In fact, most people spend more than 97% of their time indoors. They go from a covered house to a covered garage, to a covered car to a covered office, to a covered gym. We just don't expose our, we say, well, grandma, don't go outside, it's too hot. Don't go outside, it's too cold. [1:043:01] Just lay down, just relax, eat at the very first pang of hunger. This is collapsing all of our natural defense mechanisms. That's why things like cold water immersion that we don't want to adapt to, that shock the body, tap into all of these primal mechanisms to protect us. We call it hermesis, right? The body gets stressed and it's strengthens. So we got to think of some forms of stress as hermesis, right? You know, the body gets stressed and it's strengthens. So we got to think of some forms of stress as strengthening the body, right? Like cold water immersion. Water is 29 times more thermogenic than air, right? So I know you know all about cold punches, but so water pulls heat out of the body at 29 times the rate of air. That's why you can die in 72 degree water, but you can't die in 72 degree air. But when you shock the body like that, you cause the liver to secrete cold shock proteins. You cause the activation of brown fat, thermogenesis and contrary to popular belief, there is a cost to thermogenesis. There is a caloric cost to thermogenesis, [1:044:00] so it can actually improve weight loss. If you don't increase your caloric intake, it actually helps improve insulin sensitivity. It reduces insulin. It reduces blood sugar. It actually can improve the sensitivity of your body to to blood sugar. It causes a massive vasoconstriction. It forces blood to your core and up to your brain. I mean, you know, good you feel when you get out of a cold munch. It sucks going in. You feel fucking amazing coming out. Yeah, I'm religious with that. I call it my drug of choice. I wasn't kid when you came in today and you were like, what's up bro, can I get you anything? I was like, I was gonna ask for a cold blind job. I wasn't fucking with you dude. I was like, where is. I got it. Yeah, I've gotten my friends to do it now. It's hilarious. Like they've never done it before. The first time they get it, they barely can go a minute. And now I've got a bunch of them doing three minutes. Yeah, you got the one that circulates while you're, so you can achieve. Yeah, two different ones. I have the one here that's a little higher, it's in the low 40s, I think it's 43 degrees, [1:045:06] but you could crank that pitch up like a raging river. That's the blue cube. You don't get any thermal layer at all. You just suck it. It's huge. You just can't. You just suck. It's getting there. I actually like it in that little thermal layer. Oh, oh my god. It's nice. layer of the Lail is nice because I just one does not the blue cube does not give you that thermal layer but you you have the option to lower it it's like it's variable like you could crank it up to a raging river or you could have it just like a gentle stream okay yeah that's a man's game with the rage river on oh it's a motherfucker yeah that's a man's yeah but I still think physically I feel cold colder in the morososcope just because the temperature is quite a bit colder. Yeah, I haven't seen a lot of evidence that colder is better as longer as better. You know, sucks more. That's why I like it. Oh, okay. Well, there is evidence that it sucks worse. It's the mind game. I like climbing in and seeing all the ice and pushing the ice aside. I enjoy that. [1:046:00] You do? Yeah, I do. How long does it take you to get to that place where you're like, all right, I'm all right. I do it so often. I do it every day. So for me, it is like brushing my teeth or taking a shower. It's not something I don't do. When do you do it? Like wearing your shoes? It depends. Most of the time I do it first thing in and then work out. So I get in there and then I have a series of body weight routines that I do to heat my body back up. Simple stuff that I'm not gonna get hurt with. I'll do 100 pushups and 100 body weight squats. By the time I'm done with those, generally I'm heated up. I do them in sets of 20. So I'll do 20 pushups, 20 body weight squats, 20 pushups, 20 body weight squats, 20 pushups, 20 body weight squats, then I take a little break and then I do it again and then I do it one more time. So it's about 10 minutes roughly. And so at the end of 10 minutes, I'm kind of warm. I'm not sweating, but I'm kind of warmed up a little. And then I'll start my routine. So then I'll do whatever else I'm doing. If it's kettlebells, if it's, yous, whatever different type of routine that I have set for the day. [1:047:05] I'm careful if I'm doing kickboxing. Like I let myself really warm up before I start blasting. Yeah, because I feel like, you know. Especially for like. Yeah, you're so cold. Because you know, I can't crack the sweat. Like it takes me, well like when I do rounds in the bag, even if I do my body weight squats, my sit ups, my push ups, by the time I get to hitting the bag, I'm still not sweating, you know, because it's so fucking cold. So then I will do like two rounds on the bag and then by the end of two rounds, then I see two rounds. Two rounds of like tapping it. I'm moving constantly, but I'm just tapping it. I'm never just, I'm never like going crazy. But then the third round I start ramping up the power. And so for the last seven rounds, it's assault. The last seven rounds, it's like it gets hard. Does something you do by yourself just on the baby bags? Okay, it's got a trainer. [1:048:00] So how long is your training routine, Take care. Generally two hours. A regular day for me is two hours. So, but it depends. One of the things I do is I use, when it comes to training with weights and kettlebells, I treat kettlebells like it's a skill. And I think that is something that I learned from Pavleta Tazaline and studying his strong first protocol. He advocates a long, long rest period in between workout sets and more repetitions in terms of volume by virtue of the fact they have larger rest periods. And a lot of people feel like they're being lazy when they do that because they're not pushing themselves, but I push myself doing other things. Right, right. So when I'm strengthening, like, right. So if I'm strength training, like the heaviest kettlebell, I occasionally I'll lift the 90 pound kettlebell. I'll do my cleans and presses with a 90. But the vast majority of my work is warm up sets are done with a 35 and this generally like one arm swings both sides, [1:049:00] 10 reps, two sets. Then I move into a 50 pound kettlebell, 10 reps, two sets, then I move into a 50 pound kettlebell, 10 reps, two sides, and then I move to 70. So you're doing single arm with 50 pounds? Yes. And then when I do 70, I'm doing single arm. And then when I get to 70, now I'm moving into clean press and then I'm moving into windmills and I'm moving into between the legs, all that is with 70s. And but I take breaks. So like when I do like a set of, so I gotta do clean presses with 10 pounds, with 10 reps, 70 pounds. I will wait five minutes before I do another set. Five solid minutes, I'll watch TV, I'll fuck around on my phone. And I feel like I'm being a lazy piece of shit. But I know I'm not, because I'm gonna get those, I have a routine, so I have a whiteboard, I'll write it out, I take a photo on my phone with the whiteboard, so I know that I, you know, I'm not programming that for you, doing it yourself, okay. And so over time I've developed this where I know that if I do it this way, [1:050:01] I get pretty significant strength gains. And so now when I go to things that I don't do, like bench press and things like that, I'm significantly stronger than ever was before. But I'm not doing bench press. I don't ever do that. Wow. I don't do it. But I can bang out 225 for 15 reps. And it's not hard for me to do because I do so much with all these other muscle groups with kettlebells. Are you fasted or you? Yes. I first work out of the day's fasted. You don't even take like an amino acid blender or anything. No, I don't take sugar. But I do take alpha brain pre-workout, which is got beta-alany, B12s, some caffeine. It's sparking. Whoa. That's not a lot of weight. How do you think it's a powder? Yeah, it's a powder that I mix into water. How do, there's a question I forgot to ask earlier, with electrolytes and with this hydrogen water, is there any incompatibility? No, it's actually highly compatible. Okay. So electrolytes and hydrogen water, even amino acids and hydrogen water. [1:051:00] And do you take those before you work out? Do you, yeah, I work out fasted, but I work out fasted and I take amino acids. I take a full spectrum of amino acid blend because... Branch chain. Yeah, not just branch chain. So the branch chains are three of the nine. That's the loosey-nice, loosey-nvailing, but the... But I think the branch chain amino acid theory has really been debunked now that you just need to take branch chain amino acids, BCAAs before work out. The old theory used to be that, well, those are the amino acids that are really metabolized at the muscle level, so they're not cleaved through the liver. But the truth is that you really need a full spectrum of amino acid. So you need all, minimum, all nine of the essential amino acids. You have all the stuff for sale on your site? Yeah. Okay. And then about the place in order. Okay. So, Rogan's becoming my client now. So when you take that stuff, you mix it with water. Do you... I just mix it with water or I also take them in capsule form sometimes, I'll take five of them in a capsule form or I'll just mix it with water. [1:052:01] So I'm telling you that's a game changer for your workout brother. Okay. Just try that and it won't break your fast I'm gonna try that now the other thing is electrolytes like what do you have specific electrolytes use? Do you use a brand? Sodium I have my own brand of electrolytes. You know prior to that I was using an element T Yeah, I like that stuff. Yeah, like that stuff too. I'll go dive e2, but now liquidivii? Yeah. So you know what's the cyanocobalman? And then we just talked about the cyanocobalman V12. That's in liquidivii? Oh no. Yeah. So watch out. But hopefully they'll switch that to methylcobalman. But the, so I make a, I formulated a 10x health form of electrolytes, but high levels of sodium, magnesium, potassium. In contrary to popular belief, so many people are afraid of sodium. We've seen blood work on thousands and thousands and thousands of people. And there have been many clinical studies that show an inverse relationship between sodium [1:053:03] and migraine headaches, meaning as sodium levels go down, the incidence of migraine headaches go up. As sodium levels go up, the incidence of migraine headaches go down. I'm by no means saying that all migraine headaches are caused by sodium. I'm by saying that everybody that has a sodium sensitivity should take sodium for migraine headache. I'm well aware that sodium is implicated, cardiovascular conditions and blood pressure, however, when you do a blood test and you see that your sodium levels are low, let's say 134, 135, 136, 137, or 138 in that range. On your blood test and almost every blood test that has a comprehensive metabolic panel will give you the sodium level. If you are waking up three, four, five days a month with a headache or you get regular migraine headaches, watch what happens when you start to add Celtic sea salt to your drinking water or something like an electrolyte blend that I make or an element tea to your morning routine, watch what happens to those headaches. They will eviscerate and so you know most of us are clinically deficient in sodium. You know there's this [1:054:09] theory that you know sodium You know that that sodium is very dehydrating and nothing could be further from the truth We are not hydrated when we have water in our blood We're hydrated when we have water in our tissues and what determines whether or not water leaves the blood and enters the tissue is the osmotic gradient and osmosis. So if we are deficient in sodium, we have an imbalance in this gradient and so it's amazing what happens to performance and headaches in migraines when people just add a little bit of sodium to their drinking water. So if you don't want to buy one of these packets, just get Celtic sea salt, which has all kinds of extra minerals in it, has none of the potential downside of heavy metals like pink Himalayan sea salt dose. So pink Himalayan sea salt is dangerous? Pink Himalayan sea salt is great, but you know, they're, [1:055:02] I saw a study where they actually tested Several different varieties of pink Himalayan sea salt and they've actually found mercury and heavy metals and in a lot of them They found heavy metals in the pink Himalayan sea salt never in the Celtic salt and how are they finding it and why is it in there? I don't know how they're finding your warts in there like I I saw Paul Saladino posted something on the day that showed that half of the chocolate brands that I was eating were that heavy metal said, oh Jesus Christ. I was like, damn, Paul, what'd you do that? I mean, in the really good eco-friendly brands and human, which it was a brand that I love, that really high levels of metal. And I was like, shit, how did these, I only eat that really, really high percentage cow cow ones once in a while, but they seem to have high amounts of heavy metals. The Celtic sea salt, which is inexpensive, is probably the best salt you can put in the body by far. And why is it Celtic sea salt? Like what is specific about that stuff? Well, because the mineral content in it, right? [1:056:01] And there are 92 minerals that human beings need. There are, there are, you know, three essential fatty acids that we need. There's nine essential amino acids that we need. There is no such thing, by the way, as an essential carbohydrate. I get into people about this all the time. Carbohydrate is necessary for life. And I'm like, well, then name an essential carbohydrate because it doesn't exist. We have a fatty acids, we have essential amino acids, and we have essential nutrients, but carbohydrates are not necessarily for life. I'm not saying everybody needs to be on a keto-dye banning means either, but they are not necessary for life. We can sustain very prolonged periods of time without carbohydrate intake. That's why when you choose your carbohydrates, you choose them very wisely. You know, like, you know, berries, natural honey, things like that. So what you did with Dina White, the first thing you did was you got them on a ketogenic diet. Yeah, I put them on what I called a prescription ketogenic diet, which meant that I wrote a diet right down to a grocery list and said, Dina, if it's not on this list, you cannot [1:057:05] eat it. You have zero leeway. We're going to take away all your free choice for 12 weeks, right? I mean, aside from water, if it's not on this list, here's the week one grocery list, you're going to go to the grocery store, you're going to buy this, you're going to make this. Week two, you're going to go to. And then we used a very potent Pisceseid form of Resveratrol. We started, what is that word Pisceseid form of Resveratrol? It's a special extraction method for Resveratrol that hyper concentrates the Resveratrol. Really, Resveratrol is kind of known for its, you know, effect on telomere lengthening, you know, in telomerase. So, telomeres are kind of a measure of your biological age. And, um, but Pisces' risk veritrol, very specific, but spell that. P-I-C-I-E-D. [1:058:01] Pisces' E-D. Pisces' E EED, yeah, Resveratrol. Okay. I think I'll have a link to it on my Instagram as well. Goddamn it, iPhone. You try to change the auto-quake. Oh yeah, yeah. Say it again, PIC, I-C-I-E-D, Pisces EED. Okay. Resvert, there you go. Pisces EED, Resveratrol. There it is. Resvert, there you go. PIC ed risk vera trough. There it is. Look, reduced viability of tumor cells to the cell cycle or rest in apoptosis induction with that PIC ed risk vera trough did not induce the apoptosis concentration. PIC ed risk vera trough, where would that one get? Yes, vera trough, what does it say there? I see a risk vera trough. Showing higher scavenging activity against hydroxyl radicals in risk of virtual. They both exhibited the capacity of scavenging hydroxyl radicals. So Pisces showed higher scavenging activity against hydroxyl radicals than risk of air control. And where would someone get that? [1:059:01] I've got a link to the one that I take on my Instagram if they want to. I put everything that I take on there and people can just go and get it from vignarest virtual and it's a I actually had a CEO of the company in their lead their lead PhD on on my podcast. He's a guy from Johns Hopkins in his astounding. Yeah. It is astounding the clinical outcomes that we see and patients that we put on this stuff. I mean, increased circulation in the brain, renailed syndrome and circulation and even peripheral neuropathy is that related to circulation seem to eviscerate. So are you taking this with food or no food? I take it on an empty stomach. Is that I supposed to take it or can you take it with food? You can take it with food. It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. So we put what they know on a pice-ed risk fair trial put them on a because people are he's like tell me exactly what he did. You know, he's on hormone therapy. He's been very vocal about that. [2:0:06] He's not on growth hormone. He's not on decka. He's not on antivari. He's not on nangerlone. He's not on anabolic steroids. You know, a lot of nonsense about that on the web too. And then he went on a strict ketogenic diet. He did get a red light therapy bed. He did get a PMF mat. He did start doing cold plunging and he does use something called hypermax multi-step oxygen therapy. Again, all of which you can do for no cost, just what we talked about earlier. And he got really regimented about it. He didn't drink. We cut all the white flour, white rice, white bread, white pasta, white flour completely out of his diet and sugars of all kinds, which you can't have on a keto diet anyway. One of the interesting things about putting your body into a state of ketosis is that, and I'm kind of surprised at Paul Saladino doesn't talk about this because he's big, he's obviously the carnivore diet, but grass fed meats and grass fed animal products, [2:1:04] eggs and dairy, when these fats are broken down and turned into water in the crebs cycle, what happens is it produces a type of water in the cell called deuterium depleted water. If you really want to blow your mind sometime, look up deuterium depleted water. It is astounding the number of pathologies and diseases that are linked to deuterium water. Deuterium water is you know Water's two two hydrogens in one oxygen, but when you actually have an extra neutron Which doesn't sound like a big deal? Molecularly when you have an extra neutron what happens is when that water molecule enters enters the crebs cycle It breaks the crebs cycle, it breaks the crebs cycle. It actually wrecks the mitochondrial metabolism. When you eat a diet high in grass fed animal fats, eggs, dairy, fatty fish, the type of water that the body creates is called deuterium depleted water. [2:2:04] It's light water. It is actually more efficient. It doesn't break the mitochondria. Do you know that a human that our bodies produce about 100 gallons of intracellular water every day? And when I say that people freak out there, like that's impossible, I only drink a half a gallon of water. So how's my body produce a gallon of water? You produce water inside your cells, the same way we produce it in space. You take two hydrogens, one oxygen, you put them together, you have a water molecule. You're not capable of drinking enough water in two weeks to power your mitochondria for 50 minutes. Right? You have to create intracellular water. So we take these gases, we put them together, we create cellular water, and then we break it apart and inside of the creb cycle. So when that water becomes heavy, to tear them, some of the water that's entering that creb cycle starts to break the creb cycle and reduce its efficiency. When that water is light, like when it's generated, [2:3:02] when you're in ketosis or from grass-fed animal fats, eggs, dairy, things like that, or actually even plant-based fats like shelled hemp seeds. That water is light and when it powers the mitochondria, it doesn't break any of the crebs cycle. And deuterium depleto water is now being used in cancer treatments in all kinds of oncology treatments for difficult to treat cancers like glioblastomas and other things. So look up deuterium depleted water. You'll just be blown away by how much evidence there is for how healthy this type of light water is for us. You can also buy it and drink it, but it's retardedly expensive. You might as well have your body produce it by eating healthy, saturated animal fats from grass-fed sources. So you put them on this prescribed ketogenic diet. Yeah. And what were the foods? And so other than grass-fed? So he ate meat, fish, chicken, eggs, avocado, coconut oil, olive oil, nuts. [2:4:09] Basically I said there are there's going to be five oils in your kitchen. Grass fed butter or ghee butter, a tallow or coconut oil for cooking period. So we only had a tallow, grass-fed butter, ghee butter, or coconut oil, and those were for cooking. The only oil that he used at room temperature was olive oil. We didn't use that for cooking, but we used an extra virgin olive oil. So, so that we made sure that he didn't get into a dirty keto diet. Right? Because there are a lot of fats and fried foods and and seed oils that you could drink, you know, eat that would be keto, right? But they would we would I would call it dirty keto. And then we also put them on a peptide. At the time it was a growth hormone peptide, some more than an Ipa morlin. One is a GHRP, growth hormone releasing peptide. [2:5:02] The other one is a GHRH, growth hormone releasing hormone. We use these in combination to make sure that when you take this at night to try to capture that circadian pulse of growth hormone that you stimulate both the hypothalamus and the pituitary, just in the off chance that your pituitary had recently secreted growth hormone, we could actually override that negative feedback loop and make sure that every time that he took it, he got a execution of nighttime growth hormone because I also wanted to deepen You know deepen asleep then I went aggressively after the inflammation With one of the products I make myself which is called tenix brain and immune boost But I also put him on a micellized Tumoric and corkumin drops so these are nanoparticle Tumized turmeric and corkumin drops. So these are nanoparticle turmeric and corkumin with bio-aloe that you put under the tongue that go right into the bloodstream and immediately knock down inflammation. For people that have problems urinating because their prostate is swollen, a few drops of misalized turmeric and corkumin that probably just, you know, eviscerate. [2:6:04] So I was really aggressive after inflammation circulation. I didn't actually have an exercising intensely at first because you know with with insulin resistance and being pre-diabetic and just two or three tens of a point of ways from being actually diabetic. With a triglyceride level at that life-threatening level and also having that abdominal out of paucity and then very severe hypertension with this very elevated hyperhomocystinemia. Then I put him on a 10X multivitamin. It's called optimize. It's actually a vitamin I designed myself. It took me about two and a half years to get all the methylated nutrients into the right formulation so that I could address all of these genetic breaks that he had, one of which was particularly his inability to methylate homocysteine. So I put him on a vitamin called 10X optimized that I formulated myself and then I got a tri-methyl glycine. I think I got that from life extension [2:7:06] But I got Tri-Methyl glycine. He took two caps of Tri-Methyl glycine in the morning And I'm telling you Joe week over week over week if you ask him He will tell you every week my average blood pressure reading started to come down every week Each week my sleep scores started to marginally improve. I wasn't sleeping longer, I started sleeping more deeply. Every week my body fat percentage began to drop. And I was muscle protecting him with a peptide, so he wouldn't muscle waste, he would just fat waste. Because most people, when they say, I want to lose weight, they really mean, I want to lose fat. Right, they don't mean I just want to lose weight. Right. This is the problem with ozumping and tears appetite and wagovian, a lot of these other drugs is they don't put the patient on a peptide to protect the muscle. So a third of the weight that they lose is lean muscle mass. If we put them on a peptide with some of these weight loss drugs that would protect their muscle and they'd have a propensity to lose more fat and they'd still get all the benefits of the blood sugar control and everything else. [2:8:06] And week over week we used data. I pulled his blood 10 weeks later, his triglyceride levels were in the 300s. He was down over 25, 28 pounds. I think his blood pressure was already normalizing. By week five, my clinical team, again, I'm not licensed practice medicine, but Dr. Sardar had titrated him down off of all of his cardiovascular medication. So he was completely off his cardiovascular medication. He was completely off of the blood thinner. He was off of the diuretic that he was on. He was off of one other medication that he was on for a week's taken. But he was completely off of all medications. Blood pressure was normal. He was down 48 pounds. He was sleeping the deepest he'd ever slept in his entire life. The whites of his eyes cleared up. His homocysteine had gone from in the 30s down to the single digits. [2:9:03] He'd gone from being diabetic, almost insulin dependent to now normal pathic blood sugar. He gone from hyper insulinemic to normal levels of blood sugar. Is he going to go up in A1C, normalize it? Thyroid has stabilized. That was the other thing. I think he was on thyroid medication. Thyroid has stabilized. It was astounding what happened to his blood work. And he and I actually went on to Instagram and he was like, man, you get so much heat online. You know, I'm like, well, it's because I'm not a doctor. I don't tell people when doctors are like, but he's like, we should do a, we should, we should do a post and just throw my blood work out there and let people try to poke holes in it because here's what we started here's where we ended so we did it and we threw his blood work Up on there and we just we showed where did since then start where did it end? Where does triglyceride start where did it end if what you did to him was available as a pharmaceutical medication? It'd be the most popular thing available Unbelievable. Yeah, if there was something that they sold from Pfizer that you just inject into somebody that would provide those results [2:010:07] Holy shit everybody be lined up to take it. Dude, and now he feels like he's 25 years old again. Yeah, he looks fantastic. Yeah, I mean, he looks amazing. He's driving his staff up a wall. Yeah, it's pretty nuts. All that inflammation went down in his nasopharynx, dude, he got off the CPAP machine. And he had tenitis in his ear. He'd had tenitis for decades. decades, and the Tannitus was gone. So no Tannitus, no sleep apnea, no cardiovascular medication. I'm actually very, very close with his cardiothoracic surgeon now, Dr. Dan Delaya from C.T.S.I. You know, I've worked on some other things together. You know, his UFC medical director, Dr. Davidson, is part time joining our clinical team now, because like all of these alopathic physicians have said, how I mean, this has really worked. I mean, when you have data to show what works, not just the subjective data, oh, I look better, I feel better, I sleep better. When you have real objective data, you're almost an insulin-dependent diabetic, [2:011:02] and now you have normal pathoc blood sugar on your own. You had hypertraglisteridemia, now it's normal. When your HDL cholesterol was floored out, now it's in the upper end of the range and your LDL cholesterol is normal. Like you can't fake those numbers. And the same thing happened with the thyroid because he thought he had hypothyroid, which a lot of people think they have because the thyroid produces these two hormones, right? It produces T4 and it produces T3. The majority of the time when hypothyroid is diagnosed, we diagnose it because people have low T3, right? But the little known fact about the thyroid is that it only produces 20% of the T3 in your blood. So the question is, where does the other 80% of thyroid hormone T3 come from? Because when it's low, we still medicate the thyroid. I mean, you want to talk about a pandemic. We have a pandemic in this country of holding organs responsible for crimes they're not committing and then pounding them with medication and chemicals. [2:012:00] So if you look at the thyroid, in this happened in Dane's two, he had low T3. So again, the question is, where does the rest of the T3 hormone come from? Well, it is methylated from T4. We take T4 and we break it down into T3, and this happens in the gut, right? So low T3 is not usually a problem with the thyroid. It's usually a problem with methylation in the gut. And so when he got on that 10X optimized, when he started taking the B complex and the specific form of B 12, the trimethyl glycine and methylfolate, that's what he was on. It turned the methylation cycle back on. He started breaking T4 down into T3, then T3 hormone rose back into the normal range and he was like, holy shit dude, you fixed my thyroid and I go, no, no, I didn't fix your thyroid. I fixed your methylation in your gut, which occurs outside of the thyroid. Yes, you were on thyroid medication, but that organ was being held responsible for crime it wasn't committing. So we didn't actually fix the thyroid. And there's millions of people listening [2:013:01] to this podcast right now that have been diagnosed with hypothyroid. That's me. Back into your, we should do that. Yeah, I want to do it. We're going to do the test. Okay. And I'll come back in a week and a half and I'll read the results and without knowing anything about you and it'll blow your mind what I can tell you about yourself, how you think, how you go to bed, how you wake up, what your short-term recall is like, you know, what's going on in your blood work, what's out seeing your blood work, your family medical history, whether or not mother or father has hypertension or hypothyroid because we have just been fed this nonsense that so much disease and pathology is passed from generation to generation. And the sad thing is if I can get you to subscribe to the fact that you have a disease, I can get you to subscribe to the fact that you have a disease, I can get you to subscribe to a lifetime of medication. Right. Right. But if it's a nutrient deficiency, well, then I supplement a client into no longer being a client. Right? And that's why I want to spend a balance on my lifetime telling people like, [2:014:01] how do you find the raw material that's missing in your body? How do you put it back and go on about your life? At least that is a starting point, right? And it's astounding how many Pathological conditions or conditions that we call consequences of aging. We are just accepting As consequences of aging not realizing that they are nutrient deficiencies in the body. Well, listen, dude This is what we're gonna do. Okay. We're gonna do that test on me. I'm buying one of those fucking light beds. Okay. I'm gonna get a gang of these supplements and we're gonna see what's up and then yeah, let's do come back on. I don't want to see what my results are and how much different thing because I'm pretty fit. I'm pretty healthy. You're fit. I work out hard. I've no problem with energy. I'm constantly going. I do a lot of stuff, but I would always like to improve. And I'm never satisfied. So if I'm in this state right now, and maybe there's a bunch of shit that I could fix, particularly I'm excited about this idea that hypothyroidism is something that could be fixed, because I've always been told that it's not, that it's something that you just have, it's genetic, someone else in your family has it, [2:015:02] you're fucked. Next time somebody tells you you have a genetically inherited condition, look the doctor right in the eye and say, what gene did I inherit from my ancestor that causes this condition? I want to cause him conflict. Why not? Yeah, the last thing you wanted to do is cause. I'll just not go to that doctor. Well, that's one of the things that Dana said, he'll never go to a doctor ever again for general health with you because it's just been so life-changing. I mean, just unequivably. I mean, if you just look at his results and me as a good friend of his, seeing him before, I was always kind of worried about him. He's always so stressed out. He never fucking sleeps. He's always going. And he looked unhealthy. And now he looks fucking great. I know. He's ripped. He's got a six pack. He's got all this energy and people like he picked that kind of millions of dollars I'm like I wish he paid millions for dollars. Well, I don't think I think this information is super super valuable I think it's hard to digest all of it so I'd encourage everybody to do what I didn't write a bunch of shit down But so we'll do this again and when we do it again [2:016:01] We'll do it after I follow this protocol. We'll see what's up. Sounds amazing, too. I'm so you're the fucking man. Thank you brother. Thank you brother. Really educational. Really, really appreciate it. I super appreciate you too. Thanks, Kevin. Tell everybody your website, social media, all that stuff we're to go to. Yeah, sure. So you can find me on social media at Gary Brecker. It's just my first and last name. And or you go to theultimatehuman.com. This is my podcast, TheUltimateHuman.com. And on there, you can see the 10x Health Genetic Test, all the supplements that I'm manufacturing myself and getting those supplements. You can even do the gene test from there. All right.
