Episode #230: The Benefits of GHK Copper Peptide in Skincare with Dr. Suzanne Ferree and Debbie Barber

Do you want clean, but effective skincare? It seems so hard to find, but Vitali offers an amazing solution.    In today’s bonus episode on the Biohacking Superhuman Performance Podcast, I chat with Dr. Suzanne Ferre and Debbie Barber, cofounder of Vitali Skincare, about one of my favorite skincare lines. We discuss the benefits of GHK copper peptide in skin care and how GHK copper, a bioregulator peptide, improves collagen and elastin production, repairs DNA damage, and prevents senescence in skin cells. It also increases blood flow and can help with hair regrowth. We discuss the best way to apply Vitali products with GHK copper peptides. The formula of GHK copper products also includes brown algae for protection against glycation and squalane oil for moisturization. Vitali’s products are suitable for sensitive skin and can be used before and after procedures for better healing.    In this conversation, Dr. Ferree, Debbie, and I discuss the importance of cellular turnover and the role of ingredients like retinol and bakuchiol in promoting healthy skin. We also mention the significance of exfoliation and the use of sunscreen. We finish this episode with a discussion about the new copper-infused sleep mask and upcoming products from Vitali Skincare as well as a special offer!    As part of Vitali's Mother's Day sale, a complimentary full-size bottle of Bakuchiol oil is offered for FREE with purchases of $199 or more from Vitali Skincare.   Thank you to our sponsors for making this episode possible: Fatty15: Visit http://fatty15.com/NAT and use promo code NAT to save.

Topical application of GHK copper is more effective in treating the nearest area and can be used for skin care and hair regrowth. GHK copper products also include brown algae for protection against glycation and squalane oil for moisturization. These products are suitable for sensitive skin and can be used before and after procedures for better healing. Copper-infused skincare products, like the Vitali Restore Cell line, offer numerous benefits for the skin. Ingredients like retinol and bakuchiol promote cellular turnover and help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Exfoliation is essential for removing dead skin cells and maximizing the effectiveness of skincare products. Sunscreen should always be used to protect the skin from harmful UV rays. The new copper-infused sleep mask from Vitali Skincare provides antimicrobial benefits and can improve the appearance of the skin around the eyes. Upcoming products from Vitali Skincare include sunscreen and a hair product. More is not necessarily better when it comes to GHK copper, and the 3% concentration is often the sweet spot for most people. Copper-infused gloves can help protect the hands from sun damage while driving.

Episode #201: Unlocking the Healing Potential of Ozone Therapy with Micah Lowe

There are numerous realms within the field of medicine that remain underappreciated, and ozone therapy is one such example. Ozone therapy is an alternative medical treatment that introduces ozone or ozonides to the body. Today I’m with Micah Lowe and we navigate the science behind this unique approach and the numerous studies and clinical trials that support ozone therapy’s effectiveness despite not having FDA approval and being stigmatized by conventional medicine. We explore its potential as a catalyst for engaging our bodies' intelligence and how it's applied across a diverse range of areas, from dentistry to skincare. Ozone therapy is a fascinating alternative treatment that has the potential to revolutionize the way we view health and well-being.  Micah Lowe is the founder of Simply O3, which is an ozone equipment company and his mission is to reduce suffering in the world.   Thank you to our sponsors for making this episode possible: Carol Bike: Visit carolbike.com and use promo code NAT for $100 off.

Episode #200: How to Slow Down Biological Aging Using Peptides with Phil Micans

Have you ever wondered how the natural power of sunlight could be harnessed to boost our health?  In this episode of the Biohacking Superhuman Performance podcast, I chat with Sarah Turner about red light therapy. Together, we unpack the science that underlies the interaction of red light with our bodies, discuss numerous benefits it may offer for various health conditions, and the crucial aspect of tailoring the dosage for optimal results. Sarah explains the gut-brain connection and how red light therapy might be beneficial for our microbiome Sarah also discusses the concept of structured water and its influence on our health. She explains how light can alter the structure of water and consequently impact our bodies.  To top it all off, we'll share some fascinating case studies and discuss an innovative device designed for brain health that overcomes the barrier presented by the skull.  Sarah obtained degrees in Psychological Sciences and Nutritional Medicine, with a Post Graduate qualification in Clinical Neuroscience. She has studied many techniques both orthodox and alternative, with one goal in mind – to improve and optimise brain wellness and prevent brain related disease.  Whilst in California, Sarah became involved with the Biohacker movement. This led to her current understanding of the overriding role of physics in biology and fuelled her fascination with light and its healing effect on the body and mind.    Thank you to our sponsors for making this episode possible: Pendulum: Visit www.pendulumlife.com/nat to shop.

Episode #159: Susan Bratton: The Ultimate Sexual Biohacking Protocol For Better Intimacy

Do you feel like your sex life took a hit as you grew older?   In this episode of the Biohacking Superhuman Podcast, I chat with Susan Bratton about sexual biohacking. Most women tend to let their sex lives die off as they grow older, especially if their body changes in ways where sex just doesn’t happen to feel the same way that it used to. From vaginal dryness to difficulty achieving orgasms, Susan talks about the different sexual rejuvenation treatments and protocols women can try out so that they can continue to enjoy intimacy with their partners even as their bodies change over time.   We also chat about the importance of cultivating intimacy with a partner that you have been with for a long time. Susan shares her sex bucket list, among other tools, and explains how this tool can help light up that spark that may have been dormant between you and your partner for a while.    Susan Bratton is an Intimacy Wellness Expert, Sexual Bio-Hacker, and self-proclaimed “Orgasmanaut”, who is a champion and advocate for all those who desire lifelong intimacy and passion. She’s a best-selling author and publisher of 44 books and programs including Sexual Soulmates, Relationship Magic, Revive Her Drive, Ravish Him, Steamy Sex Ed™, The Passion Patch, Hormone Balancing, and Hot To Trot.      Thank you to our sponsors for making this episode possible:   Use code NAT to get 10% off Sensate now by heading over to getsensate.com   Use my practitioner code NIDDBL while registering at berkeleylife.com to get 10% off your first order.   Use code NAT25 to get 25% off Restoracell by heading over to https://www.restoracell.com     Find more from Nathalie:   YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmholC48MqRC50UffIZOMOQ Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/biohackingsuperhumanperformance Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/nathalieniddam/ Website: NatNiddam.com Join Nat’s Membership Community: https://www.natniddam.com/bsp-community Learn more about the 2023 Women’s Longevity & Resilience Retreat: https://www.natniddam.com/longevity-resilience   Find more from Susan:   Website: https://betterlover.com/ Sex Life Bucket List: https://personallifemedia.com/sexlifebucketlist/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/susanbratton/   What we discuss:   00:02:24: Is sex good for you? 00:07:16: What does Susan think of sexual biohacking? 00:11:34: What is the difference between intimacy and sex? 00:22:17: Is the sex bucket list only for couples? 00:26:05: Why does it take longer for women to be ready to go? 00:33:30: Why do women experience vaginal dryness? 00:40:10: What sexual rejuvenation treatments does Susan recommend? 00:44:30: How can O shots help? 00:48:35: What is Orgasmic Cross-Training? 00:52:14: Where to learn more about Susan?   Key Takeaways:   One of the most common complaints women make once they reach menopause is that nothing feels good when it comes to love-making. The reason? They just can’t get aroused like they used to. Given that your vagina is a muscle and not a gland, it can’t lubricate itself without blood flow. Your vaginal tissue requires blood flow to seep through the layers of its tissue to wet the lining. But over time, as women reach menopause, the tissue thins out and tends to dry up. Thus, the importance of doing the work to bring blood flow back to your pelvic bowl - especially as you get older.   The #1 reason why women don’t enjoy sex is that they’re engaging in intercourse BEFORE their bodies are properly prepared for it! See, men tend to be aroused very quickly and are ready for intercourse within a few minutes of foreplay. On the other hand, women need an average of 20 to 30 minutes of consistent stimulation to be fully aroused. As a result, this makes sex less enjoyable as women engage in intercourse BEFORE enough time has gone by to ensure adequate blood flow has made its way toward their vaginal tissue - which would properly lubricate their vagina. And as women get older and the vaginal tissue thins out, it takes even more time to get aroused - making intercourse more painful than it used to be if they rush it.   Most women have been having sex like a dude most of their lives if not all of their lives. While it's something that women don’t realize early on in their sex life, it becomes a lot more apparent after menopause when their bodies change.

Episode 145: Debbi Barber, Terry Barber, & Dr. Suzanne Turner: Copper Peptides in Skincare and Beyond

This little three amino acid peptide has the power to transform the way your skin looks- it can prevent scar formation, speed up wound healing, and promote collagen production. But the benefits don’t stop there…   On this episode of the Biohacking Superhuman Performance, I’m joined by three guests: Dr. Suzanne Turner, who is a return guest on the podcast, and the founders and formulators of Vitali Skin Care, Debbi Barber and Terry Barber. We take a deep dive into copper peptides, and cover everything from the chemical function of these peptides to how they act on DNA. We also discuss the skin health benefits of copper peptides, plus the additional key ingredients in the Vitali Skin Care products that are making drastic transformations in people’s skin. Debbi served as President of Direct Marketing Agency for 37 years, focusing on nonprofit marketing. She retired in 2018, but came out of retirement to start Vitali Skin Care and make quality, high performing skincare with copper peptides more readily available and affordable to a broader market.   Dr. Susanne Turner is a physician, teacher, speaker, urban farmer, salsero powerlifter, wife, bonus mom, and a "Birdie" practicing human performance and longevity medicine in Atlanta, GA. She is a recognized expert in the field of cellular medicine and the use of peptides and hormones. She has served on the faculty of Emory University, A4M, SSRP, ACAM and BioTE, and has been a featured guest on shows like Superhuman Radio Network, Health Matters, Jay Campbell, and the Biohacking SuperHuman Performance. Terry has a career as an inspirational speaker, author and entrepreneur.    What we discuss: 00:02:44 How Vitali Restoracell was started 00:07:39 What is the copper peptide?  00:14:03 How copper peptides can help fade scars  00:18:42 Is there a relationship between copper peptides and our own body stem cells?  00:24:25 Using derma rolling and red light in addition to copper peptides 00:28:33 Other key ingredients included in Vitali Restoracell products 00:31:21 How copper peptides act on DNA 00:41:13 What's the concentration of copper peptides in Vitali Restoracell products?   00:48:43 The main benefits of copper peptides for skin 00:53:51 What else can people do to protect their skin?    Key Takeaways: According to Dr Turner, GHKCu (known as the copper peptide) could well be a Bioregulator as so they work by binding to DNA and turning on or turning off the genes that are related to youthfulness.  When you are injured, your body sends out signals that there's damage to be repaired. Copper peptides help make your stem cells more likely to produce the growth factors that are needed to repair the damage of those cells.  Using copper peptides consistently for long periods of time can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and repair the surface of the skin.   Find more from Nathalie: YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmholC48MqRC50UffIZOMOQ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/462749384302295 Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/biohackingsuperhumanperformance Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/nathalieniddam/ Work with Nat: Book Your 20 MInute Optimization Consult: https://calendly.com/nniddam/intro-call?month=2021-08   Find more from Debbi Barber and Terry Barber: www.vitaliskincare.com  www.instagram/vitali_skincare.com   About the Sponsor: Vitali Skincare: Use code NAT25 at https://www.restoracell.com   View Before and After Photos here: https://www.natniddam.com/podcast/episode-145-debbi-barber-terry-barber-amp-dr-suzanne-turner-copper-peptides-in-skincare-and-beyond

Episode #141: Jim Law & Jim Girard: Optimizing Health through Light, Voltage, PEMF’s, Frequencies and Harmonics

My guest this week is Jim Law - CEO, Co-Founder of BioCharger & Jim Girard - Inventor and Head of Research & Development of BioCharger. In this episode, Jim Law, Jim Girard and I discuss the BioCharger. BioCharger is a health optimization platform designed to transmit energy that stimulates and invigorates the body to optimize and improve potential health, wellness, and athletic performance. It does this by using light, voltage, PEMF’s, frequencies and harmonics. The BioCharger truly is the only health optimization platform of its kind. I was lucky enough to experience the BioCharger at the Upgraded Labs Conference and it really is a one of a kind experience. I found not only myself, but others flocking to it like moths to a flame.  Jim Law has served as a managing member of Advanced Biotechnologies, LLC since co-founding the firm in 2013. With a focus on strategy and business development, Jim’s entrepreneurial track record includes founding/co-founding two prior start-ups that implemented innovative and disruptive technology based solutions that changed the way their respective industries did business. Both firms were sold to public companies (Siemens and Comfort Systems USA) and were successfully integrated into these firms’ product and service offerings. Prior to starting his own businesses, Jim held executive positions in the technology world at companies such as Apple Computer and NeXT. Jim is married with 4 children and living in Orleans, MA. Jim Girad brings more than 25 years of subtle energy research and development experience to the team, which led to the introduction of the original BioCharger concept in 1993. In 1988, Jim was privileged to have studied under Dr. Orville Fitz, a protégé of Nikola Tesla which led to Jim’s experimentation with Tesla coil and multiple wave oscillation (MWO) technologies. He then experimented with combining various noble and Inert gas filled tubes to incorporate the visible light spectrum, and applied the concept of pulsing frequencies from Rife and Lakhovsky to form a unique and hybrid subtle energy platform. In a few short years, his company Advanced Technology Concepts (ATC) had accomplished what no others previously had by discovering how to unlock the benefits of multiple subtle energies simultaneously and wirelessly.Advanced Biotechnologies, LLC acquired ATC in 2013 and Jim is a now a lead on the BioCharger NG product development team.    What is Discussed: [09:00] The start of BioCharger… [14:00] How Jim Law got involved with Jim Girard… [19:27] What is the Biocharger and how does it work?.. [34:50] The importance of vibration… [38:45] Is the BioCharger comparable to multiple devices in one?.. [48:20] Do different tissues respond to different frequencies?..

Episode #135: Could Thymus Regulation be the Key to Immunity and Health?

My guest this week is Kent Holtorf, M.D. of Holtorf Medical. In this episode, Dr. Holtorf and I discuss how his clinic treats complex conditions such as lyme, mold, shingles and other chronic illnesses. Could it be that there is a more simple way of treating them than we think? What to treat first with chronically ill people, especially when they are incredibly sensitive? Dr. Holtorf addresses the importance of the immune system from a different perspective than most, specifically the thymus gland. Can you be sick if your thymus is working at an optimal level? How does the immune system get out of balance? How does mitochondrial dysfunction fit into chronic conditions? What is human transforming growth factor beta (TGF-β) and why is it important? What peptides are the best for various conditions? These are just a few of the many topics we discuss. And stay to the end where Dr. Holtorf shares which peptide he thinks might become the next superstar over BPC-157!   Learn more about Integrative Peptides and try them for yourself at IntegrativePeptides.com.

Episode #130: Why Structured Water Matters for Health in Humans, Plants & Animals

My guests this week are Dr. Eric Laarakker & Dolf Zantinge of Analemma. In this episode we discuss possibly the most important molecule to life, water, and the critical role of structured or “coherent” water. Did you know water is actually quite sensitive? Think about how much it can absorb from life-supportive minerals to toxic contaminants, to sound, or how easily it changes states from a solid to gas. Why does the structure of water matter? How does water become unstructured? How does the structure of water affect hydration? Do toxins like glyphosate and 5G disrupt water structure? We talk about all of this, and if this sounds hippy-dippy, it’s not.  So before you nix the idea of water structure playing a vital role in sustaining all life on earth from supporting healthy brainwaves to reversing biological age and more beyond benefiting just humans–the soil, plants and animals too, take a listen to this simple, elegant solution to restructure water, backed by research, it may just have you thirsty for more…   Learn more about Anelemma here and use: NAT10 for 10% off.

Episode #129: Weight Loss Results with New GLP-1 Agonist, Mounjaro & Ozempic Comparison

My guest this week is Caleb Greer, FNP-C. This is one of the most anticipated episodes! Caleb (he’s a favorite in this community!) and I discuss the hot topic, GLP-1 agonists! Caleb breaks down what is a GLP-1 agonist, what are Semaglutides (Ozempic) and the new predecessor, GLP-1 agonist, Tirzepatide, a class of peptide that is being touted as the closest to a fat loss holy grail in a long time!  Could Tirzepatide be a magical support for fat loss? Before you race to get it, there are very important pieces to learn on dosing and side effects/”black box warnings” because as we all know, there are no free passes in life… Caleb compares these two drugs, discusses patient results, the promising benefits for high cholesterol, who is eligible, health challenges with PPIs and what to supplement, and foundations needed to be successful in any weight loss journey, because long-term health is never just, “a pill for every ill”!  Learn more about Caleb at www.daseinhealth.org     ------     Episode Sponsors Mitopure from Timeline Nutrition is a scientific breakthrough for our cells, Urolithin A.

Episode #128: Could Plasmalogens Be the Next Big Discovery for Antiaging & Recovery?

My guest this week is Dr. Dayan Goodenowe, PhD. of Prodrome Sciences. In this episode, Dr. Goodenowe and I discuss plasmalogens; what are plasmalogens, the fascinating research and case studies around antiaging and quicker recovery, why plasmalogens decline with age, the connection between myelination and brain development, various conditions plasmalogens can support; particularly in degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s, MS, Parkinson’s and other neurological conditions, and how you can improve your plasmalogen levels through diet and supplementation.  Dr. Goodenowe does an incredible job of breaking down the science of APOE genetic variations and the importance of cholesterol, as well as if it is possible to prevent TBI’s. I’m incredibly excited about the use of plasmalogens–not just for recovery, general cognition, and longevity, but also for the potential to support prevention and addressing of so many common debilitating conditions from autism to Alzheimer’s, cancer, and more. Plasmalogens are found in various areas of the body and they account for about 20% of our brain’s total weight, peaking in our 30s and 40s, but substantially declining by our 70s.  The good news is we can restore levels (and also test). We have a lot to cover, including prenatal and postnatal care!  Let’s dive in!  Learn more about plasmalogens at here and use discount code NAT25 on your order.     ------     Episode Sponsors DrinkHRW: I drink molecular hydrogen water every morning before anything else and have my clients do the same.

Episode #127: Optimal Ranges for Blood Work & What They Actually Can Tell You

My guest this week is Suzanne F. Turner, MD. Did you know we can learn a lot from the many standard labs conventional practitioners run once we tweak the ranges and look at the whole picture?  Dr. Suzanne is the perfect doctor to discuss conventional and functional testing options. We take a very comprehensive approach to discussing blood work and all the ideal lab ranges; everything your primary care physician should be routinely testing for, along with additional tests to request should you need further analysis. We touch on all the foundational tests, starting with cholesterol/lipids panel, blood sugar, inflammation markers, liver health, CBC, CMP, and thyroid. Then go more in depth with tests for aging, genetics, micronutrients, disease markers, and more.  We also talk about our favorite topics of epigenetics and peptides–for weight loss, gut health, and many other ways Dr. Turner uses peptides (she’s quite the expert in peptides and regenerative medicine!).  This conversation is jam packed with information, so make sure to have a pen ready and save it for future reference when you need a refresher before your next doctor’s visit!    Learn more about Dr. Turner at https://vinemedical.com/   Follow Dr. Turner: Instagram YouTube     ------     Episode Sponsors Berkeley Life is dedicated to supporting healthy nitric oxide levels—a vital molecule made in the body, responsible for vasodilation and circulation.

So, whether you are a fitness fanatic, biohacker, or just interested in being healthy inside and out, this episode’s expert advice is one you’ve been waiting for!    Follow Kris Instagram Kaged Muscle Instagram Website     ------     Episode Sponsors DrinkHRW: I drink molecular hydrogen water every morning before anything else and have my clients do the same.

Episode #124: How to Fix Your Gut: From Antibiotics to Mental Health

My guest this week is Kiran Krishnan, Chief Scientific Officer of Microbiome Labs. In this episode, Kiran and I discuss how to fix your gut and how the microbiome affects every aspect of your health, including the health of others in your household (pets too)! We talk about how to support and repopulate the gut post antibiotics to the emerging science of psychobiotics for mental health and wellbeing. Did you know anxiety and depression markers can be measured through gut testing?--We talk about the importance of the gut-brain connection and why what may seem like low-grade symptoms now, such as sleeplessness or foggy brain, may actually be a warning sign of neurological disease pathologies. The clinical trials Kiran discusses are fascinating; from the effects of over sterilization among populations to having an overly leaky gut!  And, no gut conversation is complete without talking poop, personal care, stress, or environmental exposures either!

My guest this week is Reed Davis, HHP, CNT, LEHP | Founder, Functional Diagnostic Nutrition In this episode, Reed and I discuss how to take control of your health and end the cycle of trial and error by identifying healing opportunities. Are you stuck on the hamster wheel of subclinical or ill health? Does every doctor tell you nothing is wrong? Have low energy, libido or mood? Struggle to manage stress, sleep, or constantly sick?  These are some of the common complaints, but common doesn't mean healthy.    How to end this metabolic chaos? We discuss shifting our society’s obsession with chasing symptoms because they are not the problem, they are the result of the problem.  The FDN program does this through a proven DRESS framework, including testing, intake forms and individualized protocols.  FDN is one of the most respected coaching programs, offering a certification to teach both medical practitioners and general people from all walks of life. The body innately knows how to be healthy; we need the right information and tools; that’s exactly what FDN graduates are trained to do.  Tune in to learn about curating the right data to uncover the most dysfunction in the body, hormone & adrenal support, food sensitivity, intelligent supplementation, nutrition and more.

Episode #114: AmpCoil & Discovering Your Body’s Self Correcting Ability to Heal

My guest this week is Freddie Kimmel. In this episode, Freddie and I discuss the body’s self correcting ability to heal, how the body functions through various vibrational frequencies, and many complementary tools to accelerate healing, including red light, BAMF, AmpCoil and others.  Many of us in the biohacking world tend to be chronic over fixers–We want to buy all the latest products and peptides in hopes of magical fixes and achieving the ultimate optimization. Freddie’s message is refreshing–he has a balanced and beautiful view on healing after going through his own hero’s journey that he shares with us. He reminds us that even though we have so many tools at our disposal, and yes he chose to supplement expensive gadgets along the way, that much of healing and health is internal work, and for most, the biggest needle mover in healing is often free.

Episode #113: The Healing Power of Ozone for Our Bodies & Planet

My guest this week is Eileen Durfee of Creatrix Solutions. In this episode, Eileen and I discuss all the questions you could possibly have about the healing powers of ozone. Are you looking to reduce your toxic load? Have chronic Candida or chronic infection? Are you worried about getting sick from contaminated foods? What about wanting more energy? Ozone has gotten a bad rap over the years because it’s misused and misunderstood. Simply put, ozone is made up of 3 oxygen atoms (O3) and has a myriad of beneficial uses for humans and the planet. Not only does it have the ability to selectively kill harmful microbes in the bloodstream and boost the body's immune system, but is also used safely in most industries and can even be used in home gardening and “healthy” sanitization (aka no superbugs here)!  In this episode, we cover it all, plus myths, the science of why ozone works, usage and safety tips.

Episode #111: Nobel Prize Super Molecule, “NO”: Better Performance, Brain, Skin, Aging & Sex

My guest this week is Dr. Nathan S. Bryan. In this episode, Dr. Bryan and I discuss nitric oxide and nitric oxide supplementation, including the new lozenges and topical line. Dr. Bryan is not only part of the brains behind Berkley Life (we all LOVE!), but also NO2U. As an expert studying NO for so long, he is a go-to resource for any questions. We start out explaining the foundations: What is nitric oxide, what are the functions in the body, why do we need optimal levels and why are nitric oxide levels so low in humans. Then we move into how diet and lifestyle affect nitric oxide levels, and of course, how to increase nitric oxide levels naturally. If you want to stack on nutraceuticals, he answers how much you should take, when to take it, and in what forms.  And that’s just the surface of what we covered!  Dr. Bryan shares about their fascinating research in long-haulers, prevention, clinical trials, post-surgery recovery, and upcoming pharmaceutical approvals. And stay to the end when we talk about skin repair and bringing on the youthful glow in a new cosmetic category they have brought to the market.   Learn more about Dr. Bryan at https://drnathansbryan.com   Follow Dr. Nathan S.

Episode # 107: Methylene Blue: Health Benefits, Applications, and Myths

My guest this week is Dr. Scott of Troscriptions. In this episode, Dr. Scott and I discuss methylene blue, nicotine, CBD and of course Troscriptions products as a whole. Methylene Blue is one of the most powerful mitochondrial optimizers, boosting energy levels, enhancing memory, improving focus, protecting the brain, and even works as an anti-infectious aid. Dr. Scott dispels some of the myths going around about methylene blue and why they are bogus. We touch on dosing and why his products are designed with a particular type of delivery method making them highly absorbable and more bioavailable. The applications for methylene blue might surprise you. For instance, it’s just as effective for improving focus as it is anti-infectious. There are different ways to use methylene blue depending on your goals. Are you wanting to improve focus? Calm down at the end of the day, or need something to get you back on track post viral infection? Methylene blue can help!  Are there contraindications? Sure. We discuss who should not take methylene blue. We also discuss side effects for particular subsets of people. If you have been following the methylene blue chatter this is one you will find very helpful to fill in the gaps of what you may or may not know already!  Learn more about methylene blue https://troscriptions.com/ and use code NAT10.     Follow Dr. Scott @drscottsherr http://facebook.com/integrativehbot https://troscriptions.com/       Sponsor Deal   Berkeley Life is dedicated to supporting healthy nitric oxide levels.

Episode #106: Why Your GlycanAge Is So Important To Your Longevity

My guest this week is Dr. Lauc of GlycanAge! In this episode, Dr. Lauc and I discuss the GlycanAge test. This test can help you understand aging due to lifestyle. This test can also help you determine if you may be developing disease. Not a lot of people know about or pay attention to glycans but it turns out they are very involved in your projected longevity. How do I live longer? How do I improve longevity? The GlycanAge test can help. Learn how glycans work in the body and why glycans are important. Glycans are greatly affected by a persons lifestyle choices. If you eat well, get enough sleep, move your body regularly, and have healthy ways of dealing with stress, your GlycanAge is probably 20 years younger than your biological age!

Episode #93: How to Stimulate the Release of More Stem Cells in Your Body to Promote Healing

My guest this week is Christian Drapeau MSc. In this episode, Christian and I discuss stem cells. Specifically the question … how can we support or stimulate the release of our own adult stem cells in our own bone marrow so that we can put more in circulation without having to take them out and inject them? Christian differentiates between the many different kinds of stem cells, explains how stem cells are produced, where in the body they are stored, how they work in the body, and how we can protect them.    We also briefly discuss the powerful ingredients, sea buckthorn berry and blue-green algae, in a supplement called Stemregen. Stemregen stimulates the release of stem cells from the bone marrow, significantly increasing the number of circulating stem cells.    Learn more about Stemregen at https://www.kalyagen.com/ and use code NAT30 for $30 off your purchase.       SPONSOR DEAL: Berkeley Life is dedicated to supporting healthy nitric oxide levels. Nitric oxide is made naturally in the body, helping to relax the walls of blood vessels and promoting healthy circulation. However, stress, age and environmental factors can inhibit your body's ability to make enough of it. When Nitric Oxide is low, your body loses that natural circulatory boost, which not only impacts your cardiovascular system, but also other key systems that rely on the circulation of blood, oxygen, and nutrients.     Visit berkeleylife.com - Consumers may register and place an order using my code NIDDBL for 10% off.   EPISODE TAKEAWAYS: [06:25] About Dr. Christian Drapeau [09:20] What are stem cells, where are they from and what can they do?.. [17:30] How do stem cells know where to go? Do you need a scaffold for stem cells?.. [26:40] Do some people have more stem cells than other people and do some people release stem cells easier?.. [33:40] Do some people have more red marrow left than others?.. [35:00] Do we make new stem cells or have a finite number of stem cells?.. [37:37] How do we convince the body to release the ideal amount of stem cells?.. [41:42] What makes some people respond more than others to Kalyagen?..

Can mold grow in a new house or building? What are some symptoms of mold toxicity?  We spend most of our time indoors, it’s where we work, sleep, and recover.

Episode # 87: How Do You Shield Your Body From The Harmful Effects Of EMF?

My guest this week is R Blank of Shield Your Body. In this episode, R and I discuss EMF’s or electromagnetic fields. There are many forms of EMF, the kind we are talking about are non-ionizing forms of EMF - referred to as radio frequency or microwave, used for wireless communication. These kinds of EMFs are over 1 trillion times higher in a city than what is found in nature. While EMFs help us to advance greatly in the world of technology and communication it comes at a cost. There are several known health risks associated with the levels of EMF that we are exposed to in our homes, cities, schools, and jobs.  Thankfully there are things we can do in our daily routine to help mitigate some of the health risks and there are products that we can use to help us use technology in a safer way.  Learn more about R Blank and Shield Your Body Products at https://www.shieldyourbody.com/ and use my code Longevity for %15 off.   Sponsor Offer: Oxford HealthSpan brings us Primeadine, the best formulated Spermidine supplement on the market!  What makes it stand out – it includes Spermine & Putrescine two other Polyamines that work hand in hand with Spermidine PLUS FOS, a prebiotic to feed the bacteria in your gut that make Spermidine!  I take Spermidine daily as do my family and my clients – it has become a solid member of my “foundation stack”.  Research has shown that Spermidine upregulates autophagy, helps the immune system to rejuvenate and it protects DNA – visible benefits experienced by myself and my clients include better sleep, hair, skin and nails!

Episode #75: Nitric Oxide is Foundational for Health: How to Make Sure You’re Getting Enough

My guest this week is Beth Shirley, RPh, CCN In this episode, Beth Shirley, (Executive Director of the Scientific Advisory Board for Berkeley Life) and I discuss Nitric Oxide and the plethora of conditions it can help with from infections to mast cell issues. Beth talks about one single compound that can help with inflammation, sexual health, brain fog, mast cell reactivation syndrome, depression, anxiety, heart disease, gut health, and so much more. We are talking about nitric oxide. Although our bodies should adequately produce this molecule, due to aging and the many environmental stressors we are now exposed to, many of us are depleted. Everything from day-to-day stress, to EMF exposure, and poor lifestyle habits can deplete nitric oxide. Beth Shirley covers a wide range of nitric oxide (NO) topics such as why we need NO, how we become deficient, how to test NO levels, how to supplement NO so the body can get back to optimal programming.

Episode #74: Elevate Your Mind with Kava - Better Calm, Focus, and Mood

My guest this week is Cameron George of TRU KAVA. In this episode, Cameron and I discuss his long journey to find his health and how Kava helped him heal. We cover frequently asked questions about Kava such as what kind of Kava is best, how to dose Kava, can you overdose with Kava, why do people use Kava, is Kava addicting, and more.   Learn more about Kava and purchase Kava at https://gettrukava.com/ and use discount code nat15 for 15% off Cameron shares his all too familiar story of a young and healthy individual whose health, all of the sudden, seems to betray them. He dealt with brain fog, memory loss, depression, multiple chemical sensitivities, severe gut issues, seizures, extreme reactions to food and water, and debilitating fatigue. He had tried many different western and alternative medicine options. So many things promise to be the panacea but did not help. Once he tried treating multiple systems at once, he started to make progress. The use of Kava in combination with other therapies made the biggest difference. Kava has mild entheogenic effects similar to psilocybin. Kava promotes calm, focus, interconnectivity, mental clarity, and so much more. In many cultures it’s used as a community drink much like alcohol is in our culture. Kava is non-addictive and does not throw your body out of balance as alcohol does.  One of the main objectives people have about kava is the potential liver damage we hear about. Cameron covers the reasons why that is not an issue especially with the whole plant synergistically like it was traditionally meant to be used. Many people know that with CBD they react better when using a full spectrum product so it makes sense it would be the same with Kava. Episode SponsorThanks to our Episode Sponsor BiOptimizers.

Episode 73: How to Protect Your Body Against the Harmful Effects of EMF Radiation

My guest this week is Arthur Menard Founder of Lambs. In this episode, Arthur and I discuss the harmful effects of EMF radiation and the healthful effects of Lambs EMF-Proof Clothing. Most of us think about what we put in and on our body, but we don’t always think about the environmental threats to our health. We suffer a significant amount of cell damage from EMF radiation that comes from cell phones, laptops, cars, airpods, wireless anything, smart devices, computers, airplanes, microwaves and more! Learn more about LAMBS EMF protective clothing at https://bit.ly/LAMBSBSP and use discount code LONGEVITY for 15% off. Arthur defines EMF”s and explains how EMF radiation affects our cells specifically. Once you understand the mechanism, it makes a whole lot more sense why we should be concerned about it. EMF creates free radicals, free radicals put us at risk for oxidative stress. When our bodies are in a state of stress 24/7 they can’t thrive or help us fight off any other illnesses that threaten our immune system. Arthur also gives us some insight into EMF research. Research shows that EMF radiation affects people in different ways. About 4% of the population is extremely affected by EMF radiation where the rest of us can’t really feel or see the damage until it’s too late because it has a cumulative effect. Reports of infertility, cancer, heart disease, and diabetes have all been linked to this kind of radiation.  This is where LAMBS or EMF-Proof Clothing comes in. We often choose to ignore the evidence because there isn’t any easy solution and we REALLY like technology! Let’s face it, technology isn’t going anywhere. So the wonderful thing about this health-enhancing apparel is that in early research it has shown to improve HRV, sleep, and overall stress on our bodies. EMF clothing can’t turn your health around on its own, it’s important to eat healthy, find ways to lower stress, get a good amount of sleep and keep your body moving.

Episode # 72: Harness the Power of Ice Baths to Rewire Your Brain and Heal Chronic and Acute Conditions

My guest this week is Adrienne Jezick, Co-Founder Morozko Forge, Master Deliberate Cold Exposure (DCE) Guide. In this episode, Adrienne shares an all-too-familiar story of a major battle with autoimmunity to the point where she thought she was dying. Low and behold, she tried one natural therapy for autoimmunity after another until she noticed that ice baths, or deliberate cold exposure therapy, made the biggest impact. While an anti-inflammatory diet was also helpful, ice bath’s opened her eyes to a totally new world of healing autoimmunity naturally. Ice baths have the power to heal chronic and acute conditions and can be a complementary therapy for many other diseases. We encourage you to comb through the clinical research out there.  Perhaps one of the biggest deterrents for deliberate cold exposure is the fear of discomfort. That’s normal. Adrienne speaks with us today with full confidence that we can, with the right guidance, be someone who tolerates and benefits from ice baths.  Today’s episode will help you understand how to prepare for deliberate cold exposure, how long to stay in an ice bath, who should NOT try ice baths, what kind of breathwork is helpful for ice baths, contrast therapy, and how often you should do ice baths. And of course, what to do if you don’t have access to a place that has ice baths.

Episode 67: You Do Not Have a Prozac Deficiency

My guest this week is Suzanne F. Turner, MD of Vine Medical. In this episode, Dr. Turner and I discuss why the common treatments for depression are not always the needed treatments for depression. Depression can be rooted in SO many different health issues that are treatable which is why jumping straight to Prozac and other antidepressants is premature. We discuss treating depression with nutrition, hormone therapy, peptides, eliminating certain medications, addressing trauma, and so much more. This is not to say that antidepressants aren’t needed at all. They can be helpful for some people however it is more important to treat the potential root causes of depression first, if more support is needed, then antidepressants can be warranted.   Learn more about Dr. Turner at Vine Medical Associates here.
