#345: The BEST FOODS To Eat To Prevent Alzheimer's Disease | Max Lugavere

Max Lugavere is a science journalist and New York Times bestselling author on a mission to help people feel better, live longer, and maximize their brain health by optimizing their diet.Sponsors:BioProtein Technology - Use code LOUISA to save 10% - https://www.bioproteintech.com/shop/biopro-plus-cortisleepZocDoc- Use code NEURO -https://www.zocdoc.com/neuroOn this episode, Max will speak about nutrition and dementia. With so many conflicting views on which nutrition route to take towards staving off Alzheimer's disease, there is too much confusion so Max provides a great overview of what route to take according to clinical data.Alzheimer's disease, one of the most dreaded conditions of old age, is unfortunately made even more of a burden by a gene called ApoE4. With two copies of this gene, you can double your risk of developing this devastating condition, proving that life isn't always fair. Even if you don't have the gene, aging still increases your chances, making it seem like no matter what you do, Alzheimer's will still creep up on you. But don't lose hope - animal studies have found that heat shock proteins can at least offer some protection against it. So, while Alzheimer's may be looming in your future, there may still be some hope.#Alzheimersdisease #maxlugavere #dementia #brainhealthThe Neuro Athletics Newsletter Instagram: @louisanicola_Twitter : @louisanicola_YouTube: @Louisa NicolaThe Neuro Experience Podcast is proud to have hosted: Dr Andrew Huberman, Dr Gabrielle Lyon, Dr Layne Norton, Thomas DeLauer, Shawn Stevenson, Dr. Rocio Salas-Whalen, Saad Alam, Uma Naidoo, Dr. Lanna Cheuck, Angela Lee Pucci, Jillian Turecki, Dr. Jordan Feigenbaum, Dr. Darren Candow, Dr. Sue Varma, Evy Poumpouras, Dr Casey Means, Renee Deehan, Dr Chris Palmer, Dr Charles Brenner.

Vitamin D and Alzheimers Disease

In this episode, I explore the intricate relationship between Vitamin D and Alzheimer's disease. I delve into the scientific nature of Vitamin D, not just as a nutrient but as a prohormone crucial for bone health, immune function, and brain health. The episode highlights the common issue of Vitamin D deficiency and its potential neurological impacts. I also discuss Alzheimer's disease, characterizing it as a form of dementia marked by amyloid-beta plaques and tau protein tangles, leading to cognitive decline. The discussion centers on emerging research that links Vitamin D levels to Alzheimer's, suggesting that adequate Vitamin D might play a role in preventing or mitigating the disease. This episode bridges the gap between Vitamin D's systemic roles and its specific implications in neurological health, particularly in Alzheimer's disease.Find the link to the study discussed in this episode hereWant to ask me a question?

The Science of Cold Water Immersion | Mike Mutzel, MS

Cold exposure, including ice baths has been getting a bad rep in the last 2 weeks due to misleading studies cited by many “performance experts” These studies are lacking evidence due to - in part- small sample sizes: studies often include a limited number of participants, making it difficult to generalize the results and gender bias: Some studies have only included participants of one gender, which may not provide a comprehensive understanding of potential benefits. Joining me today to discuss this is mike Mutzel. Mike is wildly popular in the health, fitness and nutrition space garnering tens of millions of views on his YouTube channel which is actually where I first found out about mike. I am blessed to have him on todays episode because Mike is one of those guys who not only educates but he lives and breathes scientific education.

The BEST FOODS To Eat To Prevent Alzheimer's Disease | Max Lugavere

Max Lugavere is a science journalist and New York Times bestselling author on a mission to help people feel better, live longer, and maximize their brain health by optimizing their diet.On this episode, Max will speak about nutrition and dementia. With so many conflicting views on which nutrition route to take towards staving off Alzheimer's disease, there is too much confusion so Max provides a great overview of what route to take according to clinical data. Alzheimer's disease, one of the most dreaded conditions of old age, is unfortunately made even more of a burden by a gene called ApoE4. With two copies of this gene, you can double your risk of developing this devastating condition, proving that life isn't always fair. Even if you don't have the gene, aging still increases your chances, making it seem like no matter what you do, Alzheimer's will still creep up on you. But don't lose hope - animal studies have found that heat shock proteins can at least offer some protection against it. So, while Alzheimer's may be looming in your future, there may still be some hope.#Alzheimersdisease #maxlugavere #dementia #brainhealthSYDNEY NACC EVENT - TICKETS HEREneuroathletics.com.au/naccSponsors:LMNT - drinklmnt.com/NEURO - CODE NEUROYou can follow me or contact me here --- Newsletter: https://bit.ly/3ewI5P0Instagram: louisanicola_Twitter : louisanicola_YouTube: Louisa Nicola Connect with Max:Website https://www.maxlugavere.com/aboutInstagram https://www.instagram.com/maxlugavere...Facebook https://www.facebook.com/MaxLugavereYouTube @maxlugavereTwitter https://twitter.com/maxlugaverePodcast htt

The Shocking Root Cause of Metabolic Dysfunction and Why Sugar is Toxic

How shocking is it to think that by the time you are in your 30s and 40s that your brain is already showing signs of Alzheimer’s. There is no immediate cure, yet, but there are things we can do to protect our brains around our diet and knowledge that we can actually apply and put into action. One of the ways to optimise your brain is by managing your nutrition and one topic within this field that I want to understand is that of metabolism.  Metabolic dysfunction. What is it? What is sugar? Why is sugar so bad?I deep dive into these topics with Robert Lustig who is back on the podcast for a part II. Dr Lustig's book: Metabolical: The truth about processed food and how it poisons people and the planet https://amzn.to/3pX7iaLSponsors:KETONE-IQ- 20% DISCOUNT - NEURO20https://hvmn.com/NEUROMOMENTOUS SUPPLEMENTS - 15% DISCOUNT - NEUROhttps://www.livemomentous.com/neuroConnect with Dr Lustig:Website https://robertlustig.comTwitter https://twitter.com/RobertLustigMDFacebook https://www.facebook.com/DrRobertLustig/YouTube @RobertLustigMDYou can follow me or contact me here --- Newsletter: https://bit.ly/3ewI5P0Instagram: louisanicola_ Twitter : louisanicola_ YouTube: Louisa Nicola

How Sleep Helps Muscles Grow and Recover Faster with Dr Shona Halson

Sleep is generally divided into two phases, REM (rapid eye movement) and NREM (non-rapid eye movement). While the REM sleep phase is when your body focuses on reenergizing your mind, the NREM phase, and specifically the deep sleep stage, is when your body’s physically restorative processes take place. With your brain less active, the blood supply to your muscles and tissues increases, delivering oxygen and nutrients that promote muscle repair and growth. Let’s dig into some specific connections between sleep and muscle recovery.Professor Shona Halson is the Deputy Director of the SPRINT Research Centre atACU’s School of Behavioural and Health Sciences. Prior to this she was the HeadRecovery Physiologist at the Australian Institute of Sport for over 15 years and hasled the Recovery team at three Olympic campaigns with the Australian OlympicCommittee. Her research focuses on sleep, recovery and fatigue and she haspublished over 160 peer-reviewed articles and multiple book chapters.

How Resistance Training Impacts Brain Health and Function

During the ageing process, physical capabilities (e.g., muscular strength) and cognitive functions (e.g., memory) gradually decrease. Regarding cognitive functions, substantial functional (e.g., compensatory brain activity) and structural changes (e.g., shrinking of the hippocampus) in the brain cause this decline.From a glance:Dementia affects approximately 47 million individuals globally with projections of 130 million by the year 2050.Late-onset Alzheimer's disease is the most common form of dementia, accounting for approximately 75% of all cases and is characterized by a progressive decline in cognitive function, memory, and cerebral volume.The pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease is poorly understood; however, aging, genetics, and an individual's diet and lifestyle over several decades appear to be key determinants.Excitingly, growing evidence points towards a relationship between cognition and measures of muscular strength and muscle mass. First part of this episode goes into the brain ageing process and the second half is about the effects of resistance training on brain function. Studies/ references mentioned:1.

Understanding Modafinil and other Smart Drugs. How they enhance mental performance with Dr Jonathan Wisor, PhD

Cognitive enhancing drugs are claimed to improve cognitive functions such as learning and attention. However, little is known presently about the characteristics of off-prescription cognitive enhancing drug users or their perceived everyday experience with these drugs. Modafinil has been the drugs of desire for a long time now. If you ever saw the Bradley Cooper movie called limitless, you probably wish you had access to this drug.  Laboratory studies have even shown that it may have potent antioxidative and neuroprotective effects. Modafinil is also of a high interest to the US military for enhancing alertness and reducing battle fatigue. So why isn’t everybody on this drug? Well In today's podcast, I host a guest who knows more about the science of modafinil than anyone. Dr Jonathan Wisor who is a professor of cell biology at Washington state university and researchers circadian rhythms.

How to Use Temperature to Improve Athletic Performance with Dr Craig Heller, PhD

Current evidence indicates cold water immersion may be the most effective method of pre-cooling to improve endurance performance in hot conditions, although practicality must be considered. Ice slurry ingestion appears to be the most promising practical alternative.Dr. Craig Heller, Professor of Biology at Stanford University and world expert on the science of temperature regulation.In this episode Dr. Heller explains how heat impairs muscular and mental performance, and how to cool the brain and body to reduce inflammation and to enhance performance. Dr. Heller teaches us the best ways to Coll our body down during performance, and how to use the precise timing and location of cooling on our body to greatly enhance endurance and weight training performance. He describes how cooling technology discovered and engineered in his laboratory has led to a tripling of anaerobic performance and allowed endurance athletes to run further and faster, as well as to eliminate delayed onset muscle soreness.If you’re interested in understanding the science behind cold water immersion, ice baths and how training in the cold weather than this is the episode for you.Craig's Cool Mitt - https://www.coolmitt.com/company/about-usSponsors:Eight Sleep: $150 off  - NEUROhttps://www.eightsleep.com/neuroYou can follow me or contact me here ---Newsletter: https://bit.ly/3ewI5P0Instagram: louisanicola_Twitter : louisanicola_YouTube: Louisa NicolaThe information provided in this show is not medical advice, nor should it be taken or applied as a replacement for medical advice.

Understand Your Hormones for Improved Health with Dr Kyle Gillette, MD

Hormones are like a symphony, with each one acting as a specialized instrument to keep our bodies in tune. But as we age, those instruments start to get a little rusty. Small changes over time create a variety of imbalances, until one day we wake up realizing we’re flat and out of tune. This leads to things like menopausal symptoms in women, hair loss and belly fat in men, thyroid dysfunction, bone loss, and so much more. That’s why it’s never too early, or too late, to start optimizing hormonal balance.To day I am interviewing Dr. Kyle Gillett, MD, a dual board-certified physician in family medicine and obesity medicine and an expert in optimizing hormone levels to improve overall health and well-being in both men and women.In this episode we discuss:PART I The 6 pillars of hormone optimisation What genetic tests tell us about hormones Sleep and hormone production PART IIFemale hormone optimisation Hormones and fertility Hormone optimisation for female athletes Metabolic syndrome in women The menopausal women- what is happening and the link between Alzheimers Disease What tests women should be orderingPART III Male hormone optimisationLow sperm count and low testosterone levels Fertility - sperm count Why men take testosterone and is this leading to cancer?Sleep optimisation The episode is rich with scientific mechanisms and tools for you all to consider.Find Kyle here:InstagramSponsors:KETONE-IQ- 20% DISCOUNT - NEUROhttps://hvmn.me/NeuroCUREDnutrition: 20%off - NEUROhttps://bit.ly/3OPahvkEight Sleep: $150 off  - NEUROhttps://www.eightsleep.com/neuro

Sixth Brain Cancer Death Among Ex-Phillies players - What is a Glioblastoma?

The deaths of six former Philadelphia Phillies players from brain cancer since 2003 have sparked concerns over the playing surface and radar guns at the team's former stadium - and now one doctor is calling for an investigation. Interestingly, there has been an outbreak of glioblastomas at a local New Jersey High School resulting in 107 cases of glioblastomas at this school. Glioblastoma is an aggressive type of cancer that can occur in the brain or spinal cord. Glioblastoma forms from cells called astrocytes that support nerve cells. Glioblastoma can occur at any age, but tends to occur more often in older adults. It can cause worsening headaches, nausea, vomiting and seizures.You can follow me or contact me here ---Newsletter: https://bit.ly/3ewI5P0Instagram: louisanicola_Twitter : louisanicola_YouTube: Louisa NicolaThe information provided in this show is not medical advice, nor should it be taken or applied as a replacement for medical advice.

Performance Coach to Formula 1 Driver | Michael Italiano

It's well known that F1 drivers are some of the fittest athletes in the world, but how do they train and what do they eat? What I didn't know was that necks, shoulders, and an athlete's overall core is under tremendous strain through every turn on every lap for the entire 90 minutes of a race. Drivers must therefore be strong athletes with high stamina reserves. Daniel Ricciardo’s workout regime is a carefully constructed assortment of physical challenges designed to push his body to the limit, most notably through the core and neck. With the immense strain and pressure placed on the body during races, drivers must be at the absolute peak conditioning, and Ricciardo is a shining example of what happens when you get it right. The McLaren driver recently took out the Italian Grand Prix at Monza, his first top-of-the-podium finish since 2018 and the English marque’s first GP in nine years.In this episode we will learn what it takes to be a peak Formula 1 driver.Eight Sleep- get $150 off using code NEUROYou can find Michael here - instagram.com/michaelitaliano/You can follow me or contact me here ---Newsletter: https://bit.ly/3ewI5P0Instagram: thediamondboss_Twitter : louisanicola_YouTube: Louisa NicolaThe information provided in this show is not medical advice, nor should it be taken or applied as a replacement for medical advice.

The Power of Sprouts to Detoxify The Body with Doug Evans

Doug Evans is joining us today to speak about the powerful effects of sprouting.  This conversation opened my eyes to the possibilities of sprouts. This compound is present in all cruciferous vegetables. In animal studies, when glucoraphanin is chewed or swallowed, it produces a cancer-protective compound SULFORAPHANE. This sulforaphane absorbs toxins from the body and flushes them out through urine.The best way to get sulforaphane is to sprout your broccoli organic seeds in your own home. At between five and six days old, the sulforaphane in broccoli sprout contains up to 100 times more than in mature plant. The sprouts can also be used in smoothies, sandwiches, wraps or salad apart from juicing.Broccoli sprouts are now readily available in major retail stores, but make sure you buy organic, non-GMO, or better still buy the seeds and sprout at home. Doug is a pioneer in this space and in this episode we speak about sprouting peas, chick peas, beans and broccoli.If you enjoy this podcast, please leave a written review and let us know your thoughts or simply give us a star rating on spotify!

What is Inflammation and Immunity? Medicine Redefined with Austin Perlmutter

Dr Austin Perlmutter, MD is back on the podcast to give us a a complete overhaul of the immune system, inflammation and what we can do to optimise for both.Some types of inflammation are damaging to the body, while others, usually more transient and playing a signaling role, can be beneficial. Chronic inflammation creates reactive oxygen species that damage DNA, cellular proteins, and lipids. This type of inflammation plays a key role in the development of many diseases, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes.The immune system is the body’s natural defense system. It does not reside in one single part of the body—rather, it is made up of a network of cells, molecules, tissues, and organs working together to protect the body.The most crucial part of this entire podcast?When Austin and I break down the what and the why behind increased inflammation and decreased immunity. We go into strategies and interventions you can use to have a better performing brain and live a healthier life.   Find Austin here on Instagram: @austinperlmutter Thank you to our Sponsors:Eight Sleep- get $150 off using code NEUROMUSE - get 10% off using code NEUROYou can follow me or contact me here ---Newsletter: https://bit.ly/3ewI5P0Instagram: thediamondboss_Twitter : louisanicola_Please leave a review on Apple iTunes!The information provided in this show is not medical advice, nor should it be taken or applied as a replacement for medical advice.

How We Age and What We Should Do About It

My guest today is a revolutionary thinker and medical doctor who’s on a mission to make you younger. Scientists now know that short-term acute “stress” has powerful health and longevity benefits, as long as the stress subsides at some point.For example, it’s long been known that exercise is good for us, but it wasn’t exactly clear why. Hormesis is the likely explanation.Consuming nothing at all can also put your body into a temporary state of nutritional adversity. Extended malnourishment is not good, but smaller doses of calorie restriction can help promote longevity. Adam is the Chief medical officer and co-founder of Span Health. He is also a medical doctor focused on longevity and aging. His background is in internal medicine and oncology with an MSc in genomics.

5 Scientific Errors Made by Public Heath Officials - Dr Vinay Prasad

I’m sure you are sick to death of the confusion surrounding COVID-19. I am too!The bottom line is is that there is so much confusion about what is going on and where exactly we are right now. Who should we trust? Who is right and who is just feeding us more politics?Most of the confusion comes from public officials and some physicians, those who we deem to trust, who have told lies and who have failed to abide by the laws that govern their industry. It’s hard to not be angry when you hear a two year old crying about the masking mandate. Should we be masking kids?To help me cut through the noise, the confusion and endless bickering, I was fortunate enough to sit down with Dr. Vinay Prasad to The Neuro Experience podcast.

The Psychology of Billions with Wall Street Performance Coach - Denise Shull

There is an old saying on Wall Street that the market is driven by just three emotions: fear and greed and uncertainty. Succumbing to these three traits are the biggest challenge that most people wanting ultimate success possess.Fear is what stops us from making the hard decisions. It’s called F.O.M.OGreed pushes us to make the wrong decisions. At the end of the 20th century, extreme greed fueled a bubble.Uncertainty is a lack of confidence in our decisions. Investors face an uncertain economic future fraught with danger, risk, and false optimism. In this episode with Denise Shull, performance coach and former trader who uses neuroeconomics and modern psychoanalysis in her work with hedge funds and professional athletes. In this insightful episode Denise and I take a helicopter view of the brain of an investor and trader paying particular attention to the decision making processs, the limiting beliefs holding them from succeeding, how they make great decisions and they protect themselves form losses. We then finish up by cleaning up the confusion around the popular TV series ‘billions’. For those who don’t know, Denise has finished a long battle against Showtime’s TV series Billions. She answers alot of the questions around the lawsuit and reveals the truth behind the battle.  Sponsors:Eight Sleep- use code NEURO at checkoutSomavedic- use code NEURO at checkoutSocial:Newsletter: https://bit.ly/3ewI5P0Instagram: thediamondboss_Twitter : louisanicola_The information provided in this show is not medical advice, nor should it be taken or applied as a replacement for medical advice.

3 Powerful Ways to Increase Your Deep Sleep

This episode is a part II dedicated to understanding the sleep stages. If you haven’t done so yet, I urge you to listen to part I titled “2 Powerful Ways to Increase Your REM Sleep” so you get an understanding of the difference. Despite a better understanding of the genetic, physiological and environmental factors involved in the sleep-wake regulation, many people still don’t get enough sleep—in fact, as many as one-third are not sleep enough, according to the National Sleep Foundation. One potential reason is the public’s lack of information or even misinformation about sleep. In other words, a lot of people still believe a lot of the common myths when it comes to getting a good nights sleep. These myths aren’t supported by current scientific evidence and are likely subtracting from your sleep health. In this episode we will cover what deep sleep is, the main processes associated with deep sleep and then we will finish off with some deep sleep blockers- that is, the things that you might be doing that are blocking your deep sleep.

Protecting Players at All Cost

We have a pandemic happening in our society. I'm not talking about COVID-19, I'm talking about the way in which coaches and trainers are training athletes without being properly credentialed. The coaching profession is ever changing. Coaches at each level of competition need to know more than just the Xs and the O's in order to be successful. As the primary individuals tasked with developing athletes from average to elite, they are challenged with not understanding how to optimise an athlete and get them to the NFL while also maintaining their health and well being for the long term. In this podcast I interview Pratik Patel and Alan Couzens on the intersection of performance and longevity. Alan coaches endurance athletes and uses the latest in science to optimise both performance and longevity. Ptraik is the assistant coach at the New York Giants.

I’m sure you’ve heard about them in just about every sport in the US, some of the best baseball players of all time have been accused of doping, American football players are regularly suspended for failing drug tests, and of course Lance Armstrong famously finally came clean about blood doping in 2012 vacating his seven Tour de France victories in the process. Some of these performance enhancing drugs have now reached the financial sector with some of the biggest financial institutions on Wall Street. These institutions are home to tired, hungry, competitive traders who all want that winning pill that will make them trade longer, faster and better.My guest today is Dr Carrie Jones- the hormone expert.Check her out here: https://www.instagram.com/dr.carriejones/Thank you to our sponsors:Timeline Nutrition: timelinenutrition.com - CODE: NEUROEight Sleep: eightsleep.com/louisa - CODE LOUISA for $150 off!Social: Instagram: thediamondboss_Twitter : louisanicola_ Newsletter: https://bit.ly/3ewI5P0The information provided in this show is not medical advice, nor should it be taken or applied as a replacement for medical advice.

Discover Your Chronotype to Achieve Peak Performance

There is plenty of advice for how to improve your sleep. I know I have spoken extensively on the topic and I am sure you have all heard about the importance of getting a good nights sleep. But it all comes down to the same assumption that you're doing something wrong, when in fact, it may not be your fault at all.  No, I am not telling you to go and spend 3 hours at your favourite werq class either! The amount of sleep you need is individualised however the timing of when to go to bed is actually determined by your genes! So put down the melatonin gummies and stay tuned as we engage in some talkiatry about neurobiology of a chronotype, the importance of determining our chronotype so you can train and recover at the right time. We will go into the scientific literature that explains the effectiveness of chronotypes and knowing your tchrontype then we will of course finish off with determining how to figure out your chronotype.  Thank you to our sponsors: Timeline Nutrition: timelinenutrition.com - CODE: NEUROEight Sleep: https://www.eightsleep.com/louisaSocial: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thediamondboss_/Twitter : https://twitter.com/louisanicola_ Newsletter: https://bit.ly/3ewI5P0The information provided in this show is not medical advice, nor should it be taken or applied as a replacement for medical advice.

How to Optimise Your Heart Rate Variability | Dan Plews PhD

Its been hailed as the one key biometric anyone can measure easily that gives the best all-round indicator of health and stress on the body. As more devices are able to collect high-quality Heart Rate Variability (HRV) data during the night, a few questions come up:What data should we use as HRV score? What is a good HRV?Why is my HRV plummeting after a glass of wine?How can I increase my HRV?I have been wanting to dive deep into the HRV literature for quite some time. My community is very big on wearables such as wearing the WHOOP and our ring so they know what HRV is and they have, of course been asking me for advice on understanding HRV. I went out in search of the best person to talk to about this and came across Dan Plews an Applied Sports Scientist, Researcher and coach.Thank you to our sponsors:Eight Sleep:  https://bit.ly/2ULzSzaGet $150 off on any product at Eight Sleep Athletic Greens: http://athleticgreens.com/neuroFind Dan here: https://www.instagram.com/endure_iq/Social: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thediamondboss_/Twitter : https://twitter.com/louisanicola_ Newsletter: https://bit.ly/3ewI5P0The information provided in this show is not medical advice, nor should it be taken or applied as a replacement for medical advice.

Healing Trauma with Psychedelics | Dr. David Rabin MD, PhD

There has been a lot of curiosity about the continued developments in the psychedelic therapy space recently. Designer drugs such as, Psilocybin, 3,4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) and lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) have started to emerge within the athletic space.In May of 2019, a video was leaked featuring the Washington Capitals’ Evgeny Kuznetsov sitting near two lines of a white, powder-like substance that many presumed to be cocaine. It was taken while the team was in Las Vegas to play the Golden Knights. When I read this it immediately prompted me to find out more about what this substance does to the brain which is why I recruited the wonderful Dr David Rabin, MD PhD to the neuro experience podcast via clubhouse. Dr. Rabin specializes in treatment-resistant mental illnesses including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), psychosomatic disorders, personality disorders, chronic pain disorders, insomnia, and substance use disorders using minimal and non-invasive treatment strategies.“Psychedelic medicine is unique because it allows us, whether it's MDMA or LSD, or psilocybin or ketamine, to step outside of that default mode and look back at ourselves, and really reappraise what it means to be us,” he says.To take advantage of deals from our partners, head to the following links to claim your offer:Athletic Greens: athleticgreens.com/neuro AmpHuman: AmpHuman.com - Enter code: Neuro15 for 15% off anything on the site.

Inflammation, Depression, Heat Stress and Sleep - Charles Raison

Its safe to say that there is a hidden depression epidemic in the sporting world. Despite the alarmingly large amount of athletes acknowledging their depression, a lot remains unknown about the role inflammation plays in the development of depression. Now, many athletes have recently spoken up about their experience with depression and as I work closer and closer with elite athletes I am realising that things like jet lag, travel schedules, sleep deprivation and nutrition all aid in the diagnosis of depression by way of inflammation which is why I got Dr Charles Raison on the podcast to help us understand the link between inflammation and depression. Charles Raison,  is a professor at the School of Human Ecology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Founding Director of the Center for Compassion Studies in the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Arizona. His research focuses on inflammation and the development of depression in response to illness and stress. He also examines the physical and behavioral effects of compassion training on the brain, inflammatory processes, and behavior as well as the effect of heat stress as a potentially therapeutic intervention major depressive disorder. In todays episode we go into  1:Relationship between depression and inflammation: 2. Mediators of inflammation 3. Temperature: heat vs cold 4. What role does hyperthermia play in depression and what are the therapeutic effects of whole-body hyperthermia for major depressive disorder.3. The role that sleep plays in inflammation and depression4.

Sports Neurology. Managing Concussions, Migraines and Performance

What is a sports neurologist? With the dramatic increase in head injuries in football and other sports, this relatively new subspecialty of neurology has become increasingly prominent.We are joined today by one of the first board certified sports neurologists in the country- Dr. Stephanie Alessi-LaRosa, MD, a sports neurologist with the Hartford Healthcare Ayer Neuroscience Institute For any coach or trainer or athlete, you will want to tune in and take notes. This episode not only lays the foundation to understanding the necessity of a sports neurologist but it also introduces to the various neurological conditions that athletes from all different sports posses.Sports neurology is a relatively new specialty in neurology concerned with the study and management of sports-related neurologic injuries that may develop as a result of participation in athletic activities. Concussion is the most recognized example of a sport-related injury. However, athletes also experience injuries to the spine (spinal cord), peripheral nerves, and the neuromuscular system, and rarely, traumatic brain injuries of greater severity. "Baseline testing is a way to evaluate athletes prior to having a concussion or after fully recovering from a concussion where the testing can be repeated if an acute concussion is suspected and also to assist the clinician to determine when it is safe for them to return to play" ~ Dr. Stephanie Alessi-LaRosa, MDThank you to our Sponsors:Eight Sleep- get $150 off using code NEUROMUSE - get 10% off using code NEUROFind Stephanie here: https://bit.ly/3ok6oRXConnect with her on Twitter here:  https://bit.ly/2YnpmfHREVIEW/SHARE:If you enjoyed the episode and have a spare 1-2 minutes please leave a review on iTunes so the Neuro Experience podcast ranks higher and becomes more discoverable for other listeners.  Sign up to Louisa's email newsletter: https://bit.ly/37bR58XConnect with Louisa on Instagram: https://bit.ly/2SXPA5M

134: Muscle Centric Medicine for Longevity and Brain Health | Dr. Gabrielle Lyon, DO

Dr Lyon is a function medicine physician specialising in muscle centric medicine , this concept of medicine focus on the largest organ in the body- skeletal muscle as the key to longevity. Her ground-breaking concepts eliminate unwanted body fat and build muscle, allowing for continued metabolism boosts and long-term wellness. The key is to eat the right kinds of protein, and enough of them, at each meal. This stimulates the body’s natural muscle-building process, called “muscle protein synthesis”. Dr. Lyon also promotes exercise as another way to stimulate muscle protein synthesis. More than just physical activity, adults need muscle-targeting exercises to ensure long-term health and decreased risk of chronic disease.This episode will inspire you to move your body, lift some heavy weights and eat more protein. What you thought you knew about muscle is nothing compared to what you will learn in this episode. In the episode we go over: 1. Muscle being the The organ of longevity2. Why you should focus on building muscle instead of focusing on losing fat3. The more muscle you have, the more likely you are to live4. The amount of protein we need to stimulate muscle protein synthesis5. BCAA's - spotlight focus on Leucine. 5. Women and muscle gain6. Why red meat is the most important food for everybody7. How to include more protein into your diet 8. Muscle mass and cognitive function. Find Gabrielle here: https://bit.ly/3sxdHcp

133: Change Your Brain Through Physical Activity | Ryan Glatt, MSc

Exercise affects the brain in many ways. It increases heart rate, which pumps more oxygen to the brain. It aids the release of hormones which provide an excellent environment for the growth of brain cells. Exercise also promotes brain plasticity by stimulating growth of new connections between cells in many important cortical areas of the brain. Research from UCLA even demonstrated that exercise increased growth factors in the brain which makes it easier for the brain to grow new neuronal connections.Ryan Glatt is a psychometrist and Brain Health Coach at the Brain Health Center in the Pacific Neuroscience Institute. With a strong background in exercise science and human health, Ryan develops curricula specifically targeted towards those with dementia, Parkinson’s disease, Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), and traumatic brain injury, coaching individuals towards optimal brain health.The episode touches on the following points: What is the benefits of exercise on the brain - brain functionality and blood flow  FITLIGHT trainer- science behind the light. How do we get better cognitively by using reaction training software  What does science tell us in terms of what exercises to do for brain health Literature of athletes and brain health - transferable skills for cognitionPrecision medicine and brain health - functional medicine approachesThe disconnect between nutrition and exercise Nootropics I hope you all enjoy this episode!REVIEW/SHARE:If you enjoyed the episode and have a spare 1-2 minutes please leave a review on iTunes so the Neuro Experience podcast ranks higher and becomes more discoverable for other listeners.  Sign up to Louisa's email newsletter: https://bit.ly/37bR58XConnect with Louisa on Instagram: https://bit.ly/2SXPA5MFind Ryan here: https://bit.ly/3q3p9dE

131: How Your Gut is Speaking With Your Brain | Dr. Azza Gadir, PhD

There's a community of 38,000,000,000,000 microorganisms (mostly bacteria) living in and on us. Seeded by our mothers, this is our microbiome—our non-human half we can’t live without. In an astonishing journey of symbiosis, microbes co-evolved with us, carrying in their genes, and therefore in us, the entire history of the world.The gut. Microbiome. Microbiota. Probiotics, probiotics. What on earth are these words and how do they affect the brain? We have all heard of the gut brain axis. I know I see the word being thrown around and it’s almost impossible to not want to know more about it. This subject has always been a mystery to me because like you will learn in this episode, the microbiome is an entire universe. It takes so much knowledge and time to really understand it and it’s relation to our lives and our health. So in order to understand this fully and in more depth I recruited the amazing Dr. Azza Gadir to the neuro experience to explore the depths of microbiome with us. Azza is an immunologist who completed her postdoctoral training in the laboratory at Harvard Medical School where her published research was focused on the immunological mechanisms that underlie the role of the gut microbiome in conferring protection to diseases early in life. For this work, she holds issued and pending patents and has collaborated with industry partners to accelerate the discovery of microbiome-related immunotherapies for food allergy.She is also the head of research and development at Seed. If you haven’t checked them out please do so on Instagram and you will be just as inspired as me when you see their work of art literally coming to life on your phone. Seed is an ecosystem of scientists, doctors, innovators, entrepreneurs, and translational storytellers from around the world.

130: Take Control Of Your Brain | Dr. David MD and Dr. Austin Perlmutter MD

Our brains have been hijacked. We are now living in a world where we are sickened by our food system, the pandemic and of course our habits. It all starts with a bad night sleep- Getting enough sleep won’t just invigorate you; it could also help control how much you eat. A lack of sleep is linked to overeating—especially the overconsumption of junk food—which can lead to weight gain and increased inflammation.Two hormones that help regulate hunger—ghrelin and leptin—are affected by sleep: Ghrelin stimulates appetite, while leptin decreases it. When the body is sleep-deprived, the level of ghrelin spikes, while the level of leptin falls, leading to an increase in hunger.This cascade of events produces a cycle of bad decisions and the bad decisions lead to frustration, anger, resentment and selfishness. Brain Wash: Detox Your Mind for Clearer Thinking, Deeper Relationships, and Lasting Happiness is co-authored by best-selling author David Perlmutter, MD and Austin Perlmutter, MD.David is a Board-Certified Neurologist and five-time New York Times bestselling author. He serves on the Board of Directors and is a Fellow of the American College of Nutrition. He received his M.D. degree from the University of Miami. Austin is David’s son, who is a board certified internal physician who also graduated from the university of Miami. His academic focus is in understanding the decision-making process, how it is influenced by internal and external factors, and how it changes our health and illness outcomes. Austin, along with David Perlmutter, M.D., is the co-author of the newly released book, Brain Wash. At the beginning of the show David and Austin give a detailed discussion about the science of inflammation from a neural perspective. In this episode we discuss:Neural Inflammation Connection between sleep and increased hunger The Neuroscience of decision making How exercise impacts the brain for the betterWhat is sugar? Where can it be found? What is sugars impact on brain function and cognitive performance?The Ten-Day Brain Wash reset for your brain and body  Where to learn more about Drs.

This is not an episode about the differences between male and female brains, nor a an episode using neuroscience to explain gender-specific behaviours, the 'battle of the sexes' or 'Mars-Venus' stereotypes. This is an episode about what happens inside the brains and bodies of women as they move through the phases of life, and the unique - and often misunderstood - effects of female biology and hormones.Dr McKay gives insights into brain development during infancy, childhood and the teenage years (including the onset of puberty) and also takes a look at mental health as well as the ageing brain. The episode weaves together findings from the research lab, case studies and interviews with neuroscientists and other researchers working in the disciplines of neuroendocrinology, brain development, brain health and ageing.In the episode you will learn specifically about the brain during: 1. Phases of brain changes: Childhood, Puberty, The Menstrual Cycle, The Teenage Brain, Depression and Anxiety, Pregnancy and Motherhood, Menopause, The Ageing Brain2. Structural differences between male and female brains 3. Biggest studies that have been done on the gendered brain 4. What happens in the brain of a male when he is becoming a father? 5. Hormones related to brain change 6. What is brain fog? how to overcome brain fog 7. Are women crazy when they have PMS? What happens to the brain when women are menstruating 8. Neurobiology and evolution of the brain9. How how environment shapes our mind and brain "the meaning we make of our life experiences changes the contexts that we're in"We also have some fun commentary and laughter where I share some personal stories about myself and what it means to be a woman who experiences a crazy surge of hormones once a month.

126: The Strongest Weapon Against Heart Disease and COVID-19 is Your Immunity | Dr. ASEEM MALHOTRA MD

My guest today is Dr Aseem Malhotra, an NHS Consultant Cardiologist, and visiting Professor of Evidence Based Medicine. He is a world renowned expert in the prevention, diagnosis and management of heart disease.EPISODE SHOW NOTES HEREDr Aseem's passion for writing on and researching various health related issues has resulted in a vast quantity of published academic articles in major medical journals, as well as many other public acknowledgments.So today, As we continue to learn more about #COVID-19, we continue to see a pattern in those more at risk. People who aren’t metabolically healthy (think obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and hypertension) are much more likely to experience severe complications if they are to get the virus. And to put that in perspective, only 1 in 8 Americans are considered metabolically healthy. That means a lot of us are at risk during this already alarming time. We can start changing that today, though, and create a newfound health baseline while creating a greater level of resilience when it comes to chronic disease and future situations like this. The #MetabolicSyndrome (MetS) has been called a global epidemic by the WHO1 and is considered a major public health problem, with 34% of Americans over the age of 20 estimated to be affected. Among adolescents, 9.4% are estimated to have MetS and the prevalence rises to 44.2% among those that are obese.MetS is known to affect cognition and raise the risk for dementia which is why I have introduced it twice now on The Neuro Experience podcast. In medicine, and specifically in medical training, there are three types of errors: technical errors, judgmental errors, and normative errors. (Technically, there is a fourth called quasi-normative errors, but we’ll save that for another time.) Dr. Aseem draws on his experience in evidence based medicine and talks to us about making good judgement in medicine. In this episode you will learn: The five biomarkers of metabolic dysfunction  Dr. Aseem’s personal experience with belly fat and excessive sugar intakeHealth disparities and COVID-19 outcomesMetabolic disease, excess body fat, and chronic inflammation lead to worse outcomes from COVID-19, as well as from the fluIntermittent fasting and the ketogenic dietDrivers of chronic disease and misery Evidence based medicine - why doctors need to stay up-to-date and informed Misinformation in the medical communityDr. Aseem can be found here.

125: Blood Glucose Decoded: Insulin, Metabolic Dysfunction and Blood Glucose Monitors | DR. CASEY MEANS, MD

Episode Show Notes: https://bit.ly/3hXnQZTMy guest this week is Dr. Casey Means, a medical doctor who completed her medical degree and training at Stanford school of medicine and subsequently trained to be a Head & Neck Surgeon before transitioning to Functional Medicine.Her training with the Institute for Functional Medicine allows her to help you stay healthy and heal from within. She has spent thousands of hours in the operating room and hospital, and has seen almost everything that can go wrong in personal health. I think you’re all going to really like the episode today as we dive deep into metabolic health, blood glucose, insulin and neurology. We focus alot on hyperinsulinemia, metabolic dysfunction and genetics but we also talk alot about the software we now have available to us to track and monitor your blood glucose in real-time. So I guess this podcast is great for anyone who is being introduced to blood glucose and really wants to understand how they can live a longer and healthier life by stabilising their blood glucose levels. I would say that one of the things in this podcast that fascinated me and really caught me by surprise was how important fluctuations in blood #glucose are and why getting them under control can really have a positive effect on not just your metabolic health but also the health of your brain with respect to stress and cortisol.Find Casey here: https://bit.ly/31UxMhiFind Levels here: https://bit.ly/3gUVRsM

119: Brain Health, Heavy Metals, Cortisol and Holistic Medicine | Dr. Christian Gonzalez N.D

There is no "magic pill" for your brain. It is part of a whole ecosystem that includes your body and all your surroundings—that means the artificial flavors, dyes and additives in your favorite junk food and the chemicals in the hair spray you just inhaled. Your brain is only 2 percent of your bodyweight, yet consumes 20 percent of the body's glucose. Naturopathic medicine is defined as a drugless, noninvasive, rational and evidence-based system of medicine imparting treatments with natural elements based on the theories of vitality, toxemia and the self-healing capacity of the body, as well as the principles of healthy living (Nair and Nanda, 2014).Naturopathic physicians combine the wisdom of nature with the rigors of modern science. Steeped in traditional healing methods, principles and practices, naturopathic medicine focuses on holistic, proactive prevention and comprehensive diagnosis and treatment. By using protocols that minimize the risk of harm, naturopathic physicians help facilitate the body’s inherent ability to restore and maintain optimal health.Dr. Gonzalez became proficient in integrative oncology at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America through exposure to a range of disciplines and modalities. During his residency at the center, he was able to treat more than 700 patients and he had a long lasting impact on his patients, physically, spiritually, and emotionally. He was able to obtain his Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine at the University of Bridgeport College of Naturopathic Medicine in 2014. During his training, Dr. Gonzalez underwent clinical rotations in general medicine, botanical, oncology, homeopathy, pediatrics and mind-body medicine, including a preceptorship at the NYU Langone Integrative Urology Center. In this episode we discuss: 1. Brain health from a holistic perspective 2. What does cortisol do to our body 3. Nootropics- what they are, how to take them and which ones are the best on the market 4.

118: Dirty Medicine and How Generic Drugs Are Poisoning Us | Katherine Eban

The Generic Drugs You're Taking May Not Be As Safe Or Effective As You ThinkAs the cost of prescription medication soars, consumers are increasingly taking generic drugs: low-cost alternatives to brand-name medicines. Often health insurance plans require patients to switch to generics as a way of controlling costs. But journalist Katherine Eban warns that some of these medications might not be as safe, or effective, as we think.Eban has covered the pharmaceutical industry for more than 10 years. She notes that most of the generic medicines being sold in the U.S. are manufactured overseas, mostly in India and China. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration states that it holds foreign plants to the same standards as U.S. drugmakers, but Eban's new book, Bottle of Lies, challenges that notion. She writes that the FDA often announces its overseas inspections weeks in advance, which allows plants where generic drugs are made the chance to fabricate data and results.In this episode we discuss: 1. FDA approval process of drugs 2. The lies behind the pharmaceutical industry 3. What are generic drugs and what are brand label drugs?4. Where are our generic drugs made?5.The story of Ranbaxy: An Indian drug company whose business model was fraud and deceit6.How the FDA approves drugs, the impact of “first to file”, and Peter’s tangent on moral corruption7.A booming generic drug market and the FDA struggling to keep upDinesh’s internal investigation finds widespread fraud and falsified data inside Ranbaxy8.How concerned should you be when buying a generic drug from your local pharmacy? 9. How to investigate your own drugs for quality to ensure you are getting what you need 10. An innovative pharmacy that tests all its drugs for quality 11. Reforming the FDA and generic drug industry: Why we need reform and ideas on how to do it12. The importance of taking individual ownership and not waiting for Congress to bail us outFind Katherine and her book here:https://www.katherineeban.com/Katherine on Twitter: @KatherineEban

115: The Plant Fed Brain | Dr. Will Bulsiewicz, MD

There is increasing evidence showing that the dynamic changes in the gut microbiota can alter brain physiology and behavior. Cognition was originally thought to be regulated only by the central nervous system. However, it is now becoming clear that many non-nervous system factors, including the gut-resident bacteria of the gastrointestinal tract, regulate and influence cognitive dysfunction as well as the process of neurodegeneration and cerebrovascular diseases.Dr B, as he prefers to be called, has a fun and agenda-free way of bringing the latest in gut health science to his clinical practice, website and social media (@theguthealthmd) to educate the world. Dr B’s resume speaks for itself – here is just a short list of some of the things he has already achieved in his career:Qualified MD, a graduate of Georgetown University School of MedicineBoard-certified in internal medicine and GastroenterologyMaster of Science in Clinical Investigation (MSCI) from Northwestern University and a certificate in nutrition from Cornell UniversityAt UNC he received the highest clinical award and was Chief Gastroenterology FellowHe has published more than 20 scientific articles and given more than 40 presentations at national meetingsIn this episode we discuss the following points: 1. How the gut is the second brain2. The role of neuroscience in relation to brain health3. What Microbiome is4. The role of Pre and #Probiotics We take a deep dive into the microbiome and its pathways.

114: The Mathematics of Biology & COVID-19 | KIT YATES

Maths is an unloved subject. It’s a commonplace view that maths is hard, that maths is abstract and removed from everyday concerns. Why do you think that is?In today’s society, mathematics underpins almost everything we do. It is vital to the ways in which we communicate with each other and the methods we use to navigate from place to place. It has completely altered how we buy and sell and it has revolutionised the manner in which we work and relax. Its influence can be felt in almost every courtroom and every hospital ward, in every office and every home. Maths might even explain why time seems to speed up as we get older.Kit Yates is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Mathematical Sciences and co-director of the Centre for Mathematical Biology at the University of Bath. He completed his PhD in mathematics at the University of Oxford in 2011. His research demonstrates that mathematics can be used to describe all sorts of real-world phenomena: from embryo formation to locust swarming and from sleeping sickness to egg-shell patterning. In this episodes we go through 7 mathematical principles of life: 1. Thinking Exponentially2. Sensitivity, Specificity, and Second Opinions3. The Laws of Mathematics4.

110: How Your Brain Processes Self-Talk | JASON HAMERA

You know the little voice inside your head — the one you’ve carried around inside you since before you could remember? Call it what you will: your conscience, your subconscious, the inner you. This voice is a part of us, a part of who we are, and we self identify with that voice on an inherent level. Known as self-talk, this internal chatter can be cheerful and supportive or negative and self-defeating. This voice is useful when it is positive, talking down fears and bolstering confidence. Human nature is prone to negative self-talk, however, and to sweeping assertions like “I can’t do anything right” or “I’m a complete #failure."Negative self-talk often does not reflect one's reality, and can paralyze people into inaction and self-absorption. A critical inner voice may be driven by the desire to protect a person from the shame of failure. Some people even credit their inner critic with pushing them to develop self-discipline, and to recognize their weaknesses before others do so that they can address them head on and push forward. Over time, though, the negativity of a critical inner voice takes an emotional toll.My guest Jason Hamera is living proof that positive self-talk leads to success. He goes into this with the science behind self talk in this episode.

102: Why is Everybody Depressed?

Podcast family this is a short deep dive into a conversation I had with my amazing friend Mark Metry. Something that has been on my mind for a while now. .Everywhere you look today, people are stressed out. Many reach a breaking point and sink into depression – a mental health issue few of our grandparents or great-grandparents experienced..Or is it?.Perhaps people 50 or 75 years ago just didn’t talk about depression, and didn’t seek treatment for it. After all, effective treatments weren’t exactly available back then. Maybe people today are more willing to admit to depression, and that’s why it looks like everyone is so stressed and depressed. That's one reason why many researchers are skeptical of the claim that mental health issues have become more common..Would love to know your thoughts!

101: Have we found a cure for Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Depression and ALS? | Dr. Jay Lombard

If you’ve ever “gone with your gut” to make a decision or felt “butterflies in your stomach” when nervous, you’re likely getting signals from an unexpected source: your second brain. Hidden in the walls of the digestive system, this “brain in your gut” is revolutionizing medicine’s understanding of the links between digestion, mood, health and even the way you think. Scientists call this little brain the enteric nervous system (ENS). And it’s not so little. The ENS is two thin layers of more than 100 million nerve cells lining your gastrointestinal tract from esophagus to rectum. Knowing that the gut affects the brain and understanding the far-reaching role of the microbiome has led this week’s guest on The Neuro Experience to approach neurodegenerative conditions with a whole new perspective. Dr. Jay Lombard is an internationally acclaimed neurologist, author, and keynote speaker specializing in neuroimmunological conditions and medical mysteries. Dr. Lombard integrates biological, psychological, and existential components in his holistic treatment approach. I am thrilled to learn more about ALS, Alzheimer’s and many other psychiatrist disorders in this episode and I’m sure you will too! I would love to know your thoughts!

Why You Can’t Control Other People | SUNDAY FIRE

As we all know, we can’t control anyone else’s behavior, and we can’t make another person want to or be able to change. But we can always make the choice to shift our attention inward, to focus the lens of curiosity onto ourselves. And remember, by investigating our own experience, we are not condoning the behavior that triggers our suffering, nor are we assuming responsibility for having caused it. Getting curious about what is happening inside us in a particular situation, naming it, understanding it, unpacking its history, and bringing compassion to it—this the surest path to freeing oneself from the cycle of blame and the need to change what we don’t like. Ultimately, self-awareness is the most powerful and profound antidote to suffering.

84: The Science of Overtraining | OLIVIA AMATO

If a little exercise is good for you, more must be better, right? Yes, but only up to a point. When it comes to exercise volume, there is a “dose-response relationship,” which means that the more you work out, the more benefits you will achieve, but there is a tipping point beyond which the amount of exercise you perform can do more harm than good. This point can be reached by one or both of the following two ways:1. Too much exercise without enough recovery2. Chronic underfuelingThis tipping point is known as overtraining syndrome (OTS) and, in short, leads to a decrement in fitness level and possibly injury. Today in the studio we have Olivia Amato, cycling and treadmill instructor at Peloton here to talk about her journey, the art and science of overtraining and how to effects the mental state of an athlete.
