One of the most alarming statistics in professional bodybuilding is that a huge amount of athletes would shave years off their lives in order to win, and as a result they end up working with reckless and irresponsible doctors and trainers. What are the dangers of making such a decision? How has bodybuilding changed since the eighties? On this episode, I continue my conversation with bodybuilding legend, Dave Palumbo who talks about trends in the industry and how to get into great shape safely.

 

Takeaways + Tactics 

The problem with bodybuilding today is that people are looking for shortcuts. They don’t want to do the work of training, eating and sticking to the basics. 

People compete for a short time, then they want to be able to have kids, and live long. That’s why it’s so important that athletes take care of themselves. 

Human beings respond to drugs differently, it’s about knowing your body. 



At the start of the show, we talked about how bodybuilding has changed since Dave’s Palumbo. Next, we talked about the importance of training intelligently, and how technology has impacted how people train. We also talked about the importance of considering biochemical individuality in how people’s bodies react to drugs. 


We also discussed; 

  • How bodybuilders have become lazy
  • The best and safest drugs to use for growth
  • If professional bodybuilding is at risk of becoming extinct 



Technology has done so much to make life more convenient, but in training and bodybuilding, it has led to recklessness, shortcut-taking, cheating and general laziness. People want to cut out the pain of the process, and they’ve stopped training with intelligence. The truth is, if we opt for the easy button, we will eventually do irreparable harm to our bodies, which we will surely regret. If we train right, we can get into our best shapes and still live long, healthy lives.

For all the good technology has achieved for humanity, it has also made a negative impact on our society. For many people, gadgets and devices block consciousness and critical thought. How is the digital age contributing to more noise and confusion, instead of it being a way for us to achieve optimal health? What is the balance protocol and how can we use it to make better decisions in the face of so much information? On this episode, I’m joined by functional medicine physician and creator of the Balance Protocol, Dr. Anthony G. Beck. We discuss the perils of the digital age and how to separate the helpful information from the noise.

 

Takeaways + Tactics 

People want to be entertained, so they get confused between information, knowledge and entertainment. 


When people give us information, they should give you the inclusionary and exclusionary criteria, along with showing you how to measure and monitor it.
Follow this formula: qualify, quantify, measure and monitor. 


Scars are proof that we can heal, not that we’re vulnerable. They refine us and make us stronger. 

 

At the start of the show, Dr. Anthony discussed his journey, and how the digital age is bringing a lot of low integrity people to the forefront. Next, we talked about how to tell the difference between good information we can apply to our lives, and unhelpful noise. We also talked about how to avoid getting caught up in the Matrix. 


We also discussed;

  • How to leverage tech without letting it rule us 
  • Overcoming dark nights of the soul 
  • The downsides of the digital age

 

In a world where we are inundated and flooded with so much information, conflicting messages and even lies, we need to become filters in our own right. We need to develop the ability to figure out what applies to us, and recognize that the context of environment, lifestyle and mindset, matter as much as the information itself. Dr. Anthony’s insights remind us that no matter how much technology there is out there, our humanity, hearts and souls will always transcend the noise if we plug into that and not the devices and gadgets we own.

Erectile Dysfunction is a major worldwide problem that’s starting to affect younger men, and the sick care model’s fix is just not good enough. What is L.I.S.T and why is it a more powerful solution for ED? What are the biggest barriers that get in the way of men getting their ED treated? What is the Rocket and why is it a powerful solution for ED? On this episode, I’m joined by Dustin Wolff. He is a bio-hacking guru, Regenerative Medicine practitioner and co-founder of The Rocket, a revolutionary ED device. He shares on the work he does and how the Rocket will help thousands of men get their sex lives back on track.

 

Takeaways + Tactics 

L.I.S.T employs a sonic wave that penetrates the soft tissue, which pushes blood flow to the area in order to repair it.


One of the major causes of ED is a build-up of plaque in the penis’ blood vessels.
Shock wave therapy clears this plaque and renews these blood vessels. 


The three reasons men don’t get treated for ED is affordability, accessibility and embarrassment. The Rocket is affordable, easily purchased online and allows you to treat yourself in the privacy of your home.


Being fit and in good health is the most powerful thing we can do to get better results with any treatment. 


At the start of the show, Dustin shared his experiences of being in the military and how he got started in the ED field. Next, we talked about how the body can heal itself given the right environment and how Low Intensity Shockwave Therapy works. We also talked about why pills like Viagra don’t really treat ED and fix the underlying issue. 


We also discussed;

  • How and why young men are struggling with ED 
  • How the Rocket works and treats ED 
  • Why treatment is more effective and successful in healthy people

 

The Rocket doesn’t just temporarily bring blood flow to the penis, it actually solves the root problem, with absolutely no side effects. It will clear the blockage in the penis blood vessels and even promote the growth of new blood vessels. It’s safe, effective and affordable. The result is that men get firmer and longer lasting erections, which also impacts their marriages and self-confidence, helping them stand up taller and combat the challenges we’re facing. Learn more about The Rocket on this episode, and find out how you can use it to change your life.

Sep 17, 2019

Human beings are not only plagued by the non-stop war against our biological systems, but we are also dealing with fear, low self-esteem, loneliness and other negative emotions. Why is this negative stuff just as dangerous to our health as the biological issues? Why are the emotional effects of Erectile Dysfunction? What is the underlying root ideology of fear and how do we overcome it? On this episode, I talk to Michael Bertonatti, wellness specialist and clinical director of Miami’s number 1 optimization clinic, The Medical Health Institute. He shares on optimizing ourselves beyond the physical. 

 

Takeaways + Tactics 

When we internalize our stress and low self-esteem issues, it starts to affect us biochemically. 


If we give our bodies what they need, they would never break down. When we optimize our metabolic, neurological pathways, our bodies won’t be set up to get sick. 


Identifying, connecting and surrendering to God can have a profound impact on us, how we feel about ourselves and navigating this world. 


At the start of the show, Michael shared his story and how his own health issues led him down the path of helping people. Next, we talked about how widespread the testosterone deficiency epidemic is, and why the media sensationalizes and demonizes the use of therapeutic hormonal optimization. We discussed why that has a lot to do with money and trying to instill fear in us. We talked about relentless education and how technology, social media and other distractions have made people lazy.  

 

We also discussed;

  • How ED affects self-esteem 
  • The one common denominator in people who value their health 
  • Vulnerability, masculinity and the importance of having someone to talk to
  • Tools to improve spirituality

 

The truth about the world we live in today is that we have to use multiple vehicles in order to achieve optimum health. Testosterone and hormone optimization is not the only tool that can address our problems because we also need to deal with our emotional and mental health and make sure we are educated, informed and enlightened in everything we do. Optimization isn’t just a hormone or biochemical change, it’s a lifestyle overhaul which will shatter the whole sick care model as we know it.

When it comes to physical and even mental health, our society is more focused on the problem, instead of solving the dysfunction. How is this approach causing more harm than good? Why is the chiropractic so important to our overall health and wellness? What are the pillars of mental toughness? On this episode, I talk to insightful chiropractor, coach and restaurateur, Dr. Ralph Napolitano, who shares on pain, dysfunction, what’s wrong with the system, and how we can avoid getting overcome by it.

 

Takeaways + Tactics 

Once your skeletal system has a dysfunction, your health will start to deteriorate and degenerate, which leads to other problems including digestive issues. 


The digestive system makes up half of our nervous system, and if we don’t eat well it will affect many aspects of our health. 


Mental toughness is all about mindset mastery, accurate thought, confidence and magnetic influence. 

 

At the start of the show, Dr. Ralph shares how he got to where he is today, and why so many people in the gym are missing the point entirely. Next, we talked about the difference between pain and dysfunction, and what skeletal and nervous misalignment can do to the rest of the body. Towards the end, we talked about the lessons Dr. Ralph learned from his late father. 


We also discussed; 

  • The pillars of mental toughness 
  • The importance of the gut in the rest of the body 
  • Why the news media is so dangerous

 

Everyone in our world is constantly keying in on the pain, challenges, and issues, and throwing quick fixes like medication at the problem. The problem is, this just doesn’t solve anything, and in the case of the skeletal and nervous system, it leads to even bigger problems downstream. If we focus on solving the dysfunction, we’ll create long-lasting solutions and true optimization.

In order to be optimized in today’s environment, taking supplements is key, and one of the most powerful supplements we can take is C60. How was C60 developed, and what is the science behind why it works? How does C60 optimize and improve our health? On this episode, C60 Purple Power CEO, Ken Swartz, shares on why C60 is the miracle super-oxidant we need to be optimized.  



Takeaways + Tactics 

C60 is a carbon molecule made up of 60 carbon atoms.

When testing the new molecule, scientists discovered that it doubled the lifespan of animals. 

In humans, C60 increases visual acuity and fat loss, improves libido, athletic performance and endurance. It’s even been known to make stem cells younger. 

Take C60 in the morning because it’s a stimulant. 

 

At the start of the episode, Ken shared on how he got started with C60 and the story of its development, and the testing methods and tools that were used. We also talked about why it’s only now being used in humans. We also talked about how the molecule supercharges the mitochondria, and what that does for our health. 

 

We also talked about;

  • Why C60 is used as a delivery method for medications
  • How CC60 makes us younger 
  • How C60 improves athletic function 

C60 is revolutionizing age management because of it’s incredible abilities to not only increase life span, but to improve health and so many functions in the body. These include libido, energy, focus and concentration, athletic performance, endurance and fat loss. The molecule supercharges the mitochondria, de-ages stem cells and helps the body in so many ways. If you’re looking to be optimized, it’s worth adding C60 to your supplement regimen. It is the most powerful and versatile molecule there is.

Each year, more and more Americans are diagnosed with Lyme Disease, and the numbers are expected to keep going up. What is the connection between our highly toxic environments and the condition? Why does treatment have to go beyond just killing the parasites? What are the other factors leading to the rise of Lyme Disease in our population? Why are our internal drainage pathways so vital in treating the disease? On this episode, I’m joined by prominent functional medicine physician, clinician, bestselling author and speaker, Dr. Jay Davidson. He shares on his mission to help cure Lyme disease, and what we can do to eliminate pathogens and detox our bodies.

 

Takeaways + Tactics 

Emotional trauma is as much a health risk factor as our environment, the food we eat and how well we take care of our bodies. 

When it comes to treating disease, we shouldn’t just focus on the diagnosis, or how our DNA caused it. There’s always an environmental or habit-based source of the illness. 

Drainage is extremely important in letting out the toxins. The most important drainage pathways in our bodies are the colon, the liver bile duct and lymphatic pathway. 

If your brain is firing on all cylinders, you should be able to download information and retain it easily. If you’re having issues with memory, and cognitive function, it might be due to a lymphatic drainage issue.

 

At the start of the show, Dr. Jay Davidson shared on how he got into medicine, and how his wife’s struggles with Lyme disease led him down the path he’s now on to help people suffering from the condition. Next, we talked about how unresolved emotional trauma affects our physical health. “Typically, the more symptoms someone has, and the more they are struggling to get better, the more past trauma they have.” We also talked about why we need to shift our focus to unlocking our DNA instead of just thinking about the issues it might be causing. 


We also discussed 

  • How our life experiences are a projection of our inner state
  • The difference between drainage and detoxing  
  • The best foods and treatments to keep our bowels functional 

 

Our bodies are constantly assaulted by toxicity, mould, parasites, emotional trauma, and bad food choices. For us to survive, there are no other options besides detoxification, optimization and any other measure we can use to stay healthy. Lyme disease is a reflection of the times we’re living in, but that doesn’t mean that we are powerless against it. By eliminating toxins, keeping our drainage pathways clear and eating the right foods and taking the right supplements, our health can be restored.

Optimization for men is imperative in this environmentally toxic world. What are the key supplements an optimization-minded man should be taking? How can erectile dysfunction get addressed? How can men get rid of fat? On this episode, Dr. Jeffrey Ruterbusch shares on optimization tips and hacks, and his experience doing medicine all over the world.

 

Takeaways + Tactics 

When it comes to natural testosterone boosters, none of them show anything beyond transient elevation.

If we train first thing in the morning on an empty stomach when our glucagon levels are the highest, and take hydroxycitric acid and l-carnitine, we’ll get chiseled 

Tesofensine is phenomenal for weight loss. 

 

At the start of the show, Dr. Jeffrey shared how he got started, and how optimization supplements have changed over the decades. Next, we talked about whether natural testosterone boosters work, and why you should train when your glucagon levels are high. We also discussed why Metformin is so powerful. 

 

We also discussed; 

  • Erectile dysfunction 
  • Different types of peptides and their uses
  • The dangers of using statins 

 

Replacing testosterone is one thing, but optimizing a man’s physical, sexual and mental health is an artform that isn’t practiced by a lot of the physicians. For optimization-minded men, the fundamentals are exercise, diet and supplements. If you added testosterone, thyroid, metformin and low dose Cialis, your health will be completely dialed in.

C60 is one of the most powerful optimization supplements on earth. The only challenge is, there are a lot of fraudsters claiming to sell the real thing when they aren’t. Why is this such a problem in the world of supplements? How can we identify reputable sources and sellers so we don’t waste our money? What are the benefits of C60? On this episode, SES Research co-founder and C60 expert, Chris Burres shares why C60 is a key optimization supplement and where to buy it. 


Four Takeaways 

Genuine C60 should dissolve and turn purple when you put it in into sunflower seed oil. 

Most scientific studies are done with the intention to come to a specific conclusion, which is the opposite of science. 

Because people aren’t protecting themselves from blue screens and devices, we don’t get into restorative, deep, polyphasic sleep, which is where we release growth hormone. 

If you’re looking for legitimate sellers of C60, don’t buyer from a company that only sells on Amazon, and has no website or physical address. When you’re dealing with a legitimate company, you can call them and have an intelligent conversation. 




At the start of the show, Chris shared how he got started, and how to find reputable C60 sellers. We talked about red flags that tell you a seller is selling fake supplements. We also discussed why so many studies shouldn’t be trusted. 


We also discussed:

  • Why the supplement industry is so prone to fakes
  • How C60 improves sleep 


What makes C60 special is that there’s nothing quite like it. There’s no other supplement that gives you energy throughout the day and helps you sleep better at night. But in this “buyer beware” era it can be hard knowing that you’re actually buying the real thing. It’s so important to do you homework and buy from companies that have validity. If you buy the real thing, and you incorporate it into your life, you will be in the best health of your life.

When it comes to life extension and optimization, peptides are a game changer. How do peptides work and why are they crucial to healing and cell regeneration? How can we reconcile what we know now about cell biology and how we attack disease and aging? What are the best peptides to use and how can we optimize our peptide use? On this episode, I’m honored to be joined by orthopedic surgeon, leading sports medicine physician, and game-changing performance optimizing master-mind, Dr. William Seeds. He shares powerful insights on the peptide revolution and how they are changing the face of medicine.

 

Four Takeaways 

Aging is the #1 risk factor in health. When a cell deteriorates and fails to start the process of autophagy, it goes into senescence. Peptides can interrupt this process. 

The immune system is paramount. Many health process breakdowns are caused by a problem in the immune system. 

From age 30, there’s a slow down in the production of growth hormone and IGF. 

Exposing the brain and the body to constant stimulation of growth hormone can do more harm than good to a patient. 

 

At the start of the show, Dr. Seeds shares on the use of peptides in professional sport, and how peptides actually work. Next, we talked about how long it will take for medical system to actually benefit people. Dr. Seeds also shared on his favorite peptides, how he uses them and the health issues they solve. 

 

We also discussed; 

  • The best peptides for improved brain function 
  • Melanotan and conscious expansion
  • Why Dr. Seeds combines GHRHs with GHRPs 

 

Thanks to the advancement of optimization medicine, we finally have the biotechnology to extend our lives and use biotechnology to reverse or control the effects of aging. Through peptides, we give the body the ability to do what it did well when we were younger, and give it that chance to do it well as we age. Peptides aren’t about cheating the health code or enhancing performance, they are about repairing and restoring our bodies. Every aspect of our bodies and our health can be completely changed by peptides.

When it comes to building muscle and gains, many people won’t tell you what it’s like to be so big that you break car seats.

How does weighing 315 pounds impact sleep, clothing, and body temperature?

What are some of the other unforeseen challenges that come with being a massive bodybuilder?

On this episode, I continue my conversation with legendary bodybuilder, and CEO and Founder of RxMuscle.com, Dave Palumbo, who talks about what it felt like being a 315-pound ripped bodybuilder, and how going through challenging legal issues led him to find his purpose.

Jul 23, 2019

When it comes to building muscle, many people fail to achieve results because of incorrect form, and they fail to learn the biochemical techniques of bodybuilding. What are some of the key ways to make sure you’re achieving peak performance? What does it take to transform your body significantly? How can we make sure we’re activating our muscles at the right level? On this episode, I’m joined by professional bodybuilder, and CEO and Founder of RxMuscle.com, Dave Palumbo, who shares how he became a 315-pound ripped bodybuilder.

 

Three Takeaways 

If you eat a lot of food without creating the stimulus for muscle building, you can take all the drugs in the world but it won’t do anything.

Squat, bench and row: if you learn to do these things well, you will build muscle. 

Poke the muscle you’re supposed to be working so that you can have mind-muscle connection.

 

At the start of the show, Dave shared how he got started, and how he made the switch from lean runner, to a world-class bodybuilder. Next, we talked about how his life as an endurance runner contributed to his results in gaining muscle. We talked about some of the causes of people being so misinformed about weight training. 

 

We also discussed; 

  • The problem with trainers who can’t train and people learning about building muscle on social media 
  • The biochemical techniques of building muscle 
  • The drug regimen Dave used to gain muscle 


The fundamentals of bodybuilding are impeccable form, achieving the full range of motion, and controlling the weights you lift. The problem is, many people in the gym won’t be able to learn the neurological patterning that is necessary to contract muscle fibers, and as a result, they never get any gains. You have to learn and train with someone in person; someone who knows what they are doing. Focusing just on getting more reps and sets won’t get you anywhere.

The human body has its own inflammation signalling system that we can optimize in order to heal ourselves. Why does the sick care system’s way of dealing with inflammation actually destroy this system? How does regenerative medicine work? What are the different types of regenerative tools and which ones are best? On this episode, I’m joined by Buckeye Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation founder, Dr. Roy “Buzz” Korth, who shares on the approaches of regenerative medicine and how they can be employed to heal the body. 

 

Three Takeaways 

Testosterone deficiency has more to do with stress levels than age nowadays. 

Through inflammation, the body begins a process of healing itself through stem cells and growth factors. When people take pain medication, they get rid of the pain, but they also stop the process of healing. 

Stem cells need oxygen to release growth factors. The areas that degenerate are tendons, ligaments and joints and that’s because after puberty, those areas don’t get circulation.  



At the start of the show, Dr. Roy talked about the state of veteran healthcare, and the correlation between stress and hormone deficiencies. Next, we talked about why inflammation can actually be a good thing, and the process of extracting and getting stem cells. We also talked about the difference between stem cell grades and uses. 

 

We also discussed; 

  • Exosomes and how they are classified 
  • The legal and illegal uses of stem cells 
  • Best peptides for nutropic function and fat loss 

 

The biggest issue we have in healthcare right now is that the so-called solutions to problems are nothing more than Band-Aids, quick fixes and short-term patches that don’t fix the root causes. This is where regenerative medicine comes in. It leans heavily on the fact that the body has the ability to heal itself, and if we get the right tools, we can help them regenerate. Pain and inflammation are warning signs and a signal that triggers the body’s stem cells and growth factors which will heal any wound. When we take pain medicine, SSRI’s and all the other quick fixes, we don’t actually solve the real issue. By employing the right tools, we can actually address what’s really at the core.

One of the biggest crises in health right now is the low levels of sperm count and fertility in young men, and the question of what the clinical community can do about it. Why are we experiencing such a decline in the reproductive potential of men who should be in their prime? Does testosterone therapy need to be at super-therapeutic levels all the time? How can men on testosterone therapy still maintain their fertility? On this episode, I’m joined by the Director of Male Reproductive Medicine and Surgery at the University of Miami, Dr. Ranjith Ramasamy, who talks about how to improve the reproductive health of men. 


Four Takeaways 

The reasons we’re experiencing low sperm count in young men are obesity, environmental influences, stress, and social media. 

Short-acting testosterone is better for fertility and reproductive potential because it mimics the body’s natural pulsativity. 

The reason testosterone therapy affects fertility and blocks metagenesis is because if it’s used over a long term, it blocks FSH and LH.  

The restorative protocol for people who took supra-physiological doses of testosterone for long periods of time is HCG and clomiphene to jumpstart testosterone and sperm production. 

 

At the start of the show, Dr. Ramasamy shared how he got started, and what’s causing the crisis in male fertility right now. Next, we talked about why the biggest battle in the clinical optimization space is misinformation, and why it’s equally important to educate consumers as much doctors. We also talked about why faster-acting testosterone is better for improving fertility, and why the insurance-attached prescribing community is so afraid of testosterone. 

 

We also discussed: 

  • Where the fear of men taking estrogen comes from 
  • How to restore sperm and testosterone production 
  • Why doctors should not be dismissive 
  • Risks of phlebotomy 

 

For the last few decades, testosterone therapy has opted for long-acting preparations, but the problem is that it has impacted the reproductive potential of many men. When it comes to fertility, maintaining testicular size, and reproductive potential, the pendulum has to swing back to a shorter acting form to mimic the body’s natural physiology.

The rise and prevalence of Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative disorders is alarming, and the healthcare industry is doing nothing about it. Why is Big Pharma letting this crisis worsen? What nutritional solutions can we put in place to start solving this issue? On this episode I’m joined by Dr. John Lewis, the Chief Scientific Officer and Co-Founder of Nurish.Me, to talk about the products his company develops and how they are helping people regain cognitive functioning.

 

Three Takeaways

  • Whatever diet program you opt for, eating greens, nuts and seeds is critical.

  • People have been conditioned to think everything is a genetic predisposition, but there’s a big difference between bad genes and the result of bad food choices.  

    Not all sugar is bad for you. Polysaccharides enhance, modulate and improve our immune system functioning. They can be found in rice bran, wild Mexican yam, and aloe vera. You can also get them through dietary supplementation.  

At the start of the show, Dr. Lewis talked about the importance of taking care of your health, and why he chose a plant-based diet. We talked about why Big Pharma would prefer the state of health to remain the same. We also discussed polysaccharides and why they are so important. Towards the end, we discussed the connection between the lack of weight training and the health issues Baby Boomers experience. Dr. Lewis also talked about his Alzheimer’s study.

 

We also discussed:

  • The biggest mistake made by many people who “eat clean”
  • The state of neurodegenerative disorders
  • Why you should confuse genetic disposition and bad behavior

The medical system is built to keep people sick for years so that they will constantly pay for medication, run out of money, and pass on bad behaviors to the younger generation. This is why Big Pharma has not stepped in with a meaningful solution to the neurodegenerative disorder problem: there’s no financial incentive for them to do so. There are other solutions however, in the form of enhanced nutrition with polysaccharides. These sugars have been extremely powerful in patients regaining their cognitive functioning and neuroplasticity. They have helped many people start getting their minds back, and we could save the masses by making itt a widespread treatment plan.

Exposure to healthy light is one of the most underestimated therapies in our mission to become optimized. Why is red light therapy one of the most effective ways to get this treatment, and what are the mechanisms that make it work so well? How can we make sure we’re using the right kind of devices for red light therapy? On this episode I’m joined by Scott Nelson, the founder of light therapy company called Joovv. He shares how their devices work, their benefits, and why light therapy is so beneficial.

Healthy wavelengths of light in the right dosages are incredibly beneficial for our health in so many areas. -Scott Nelson

 

Three Takeaways

  • Our lifestyles don’t lend themselves to exposure to healthy light, and this is doing a huge disservice to our health.

  • When choosing a red light therapy device, make sure the device delivers the clinically proven wave length, which falls into the therapeutic window. For visible red light, the range should be in the mid-600 nanometers. For invisible near infrared, the range should be in the low 800s.  

  • One of the mechanisms of red light therapy is near-infrared wavelengths resonating with an enzyme during respiration called cytochrome c oxidase. This allows cellular respiration to be more efficient, creating more cellular energy which powers the whole body.

At the start of the show, Scott shared on how Joovv got started, how modern living has decreased our exposure to healthy light, and the impact it has had on our overall health. Next, we talked about some of the benefits of red light therapy, including improving the skin and cognitive function. We talked about how to identify a good red light therapy device, red light therapy and its impact on our eyes, as well as how to determine the coverage of a device.

 

We also discussed:

  • How red light therapy can aid in stubborn fat loss
  • The difference between dry infrared sauna and red light therapy
  • Whether red light therapy can have an impact on our eyes

The variety of health optimization benefits we gain by using light therapy are simple but incredibly underestimated. Red light therapy reduces joint pain and inflammation, and it improves muscle recovery and peak athletic performance. But not every device that promises these benefits actually delivers, and we have to be very careful about what we buy. You’re looking for coverage, therapeutic power ranges, and metrics substantiated and validated by third parties.

The greatest barrier to optimization isn’t just the structures of the healthcare industry, but also the attitudes and mindsets so many people have towards it. Why is it dangerous to be so dogmatic about how healthcare should work? What are some of the things we need to align in order to be healthier? What are some of the challenges doctors face as they switch from the traditional healthcare system to optimization? On this episode, I’m joined by Dr. Bonner who shares how he left the sick care system and why he isn’t looking back.

 

Four Takeaways

  • If you’re dogmatic about medicine and sticking to the traditional system, you’ll get left behind and lose your health in the process.  
  • The information taught in the traditional study of medicine is very different from what doctors need to learn in optimization.
  • Everything that’s wrong with healthcare goes back to Big Pharma. They want men on ED medication and SSRIs so they can make more money. 

  • Screens destroy your optic nerve, and rewires your dopaminergic pathways.

At the beginning of the show, Dr. Bonner shared how he got started, and what led him down the path of optimization personally and professionally. Next, we talked about why it’s so challenging to switch from traditional medical training to functional medicine. We also discussed about why Big Pharma can be blamed for all the issues in healthcare.  

 

We also discussed;

  • How devices compromise sleep
  • Why you shouldn’t block estrogen
  • The metformin conspiracy

For many physicians who have been trained on the sick-care model, the idea of leaving that system is something they would never dare to do. Not only does it expose them to judgement, and possible financial setbacks, it also goes against every single thing they are taught in medical school. Most of these people are just too set in their ways, too dogmatic and too afraid to change; but as the optimization becomes more necessary, these people will get left behind.

People are constantly encouraged to lift weights, but often the methods and equipment they use fail to change their physique and even cause injury. What is at the root of inefficient weight lifting that plagues so many workouts? How can you get your central nervous system to help you build muscle? What is the X3 Bar, and why it is the secret to growing muscle and reducing joint pain?

On this episode, I’m joined by author, entrepreneur and founder of the X3 Bar, Dr. John Jaquish, who shares how his invention is making a real impact in helping people grow stronger.

Being strong and lean are the two biggest determinants of long life. -Dr. John Jaquish

 

Three Takeaways

  • You don’t just go to the gym to lift weights. You go to contract muscle fibers to build up your muscles and bone density.

  • A lot of the soreness people experience after lifting isn’t caused by lactic acid. It’s just joint damage, which doesn’t do anything for your muscles.

  • Think of the central nervous system as an engineering team of deaf and blind entities in your body that can only communicate based on the environment you create in the body.

  • When you do fasted cardio, you reduce growth hormone and increase cortisol. When you lift, you increase growth hormone, which is important in improving your skeletal health.

At the start of the show, John shared what led to the creation of The X3 Bar, and why triggering adaptation in older people is so powerful. Next, we talked about the lessons John learned from gymnasts and why people are more powerful in the impact-ready range of motion. We discussed how to communicate with the central nervous system, and how the X3 Bar triggers androgen receptor sensitivity.

 

We also discussed:

  • The dangers of high pain tolerance
  • The connection between The X3 Bar, testosterone and androgen receptors
  • The growth hormone effect of the X3 Bar


Going to the gym shouldn’t just be about how much we lift, but about contracting our muscles so that they grow. If our weightlifting is overloading our joints and underloading our muscle, there’s so much potential we’re leaving on the table. How we lift weights needs to help our central nervous system increase growth hormone. To do that you need to train at the right intensity in impact-ready positions. The body is incredibly efficient if we know exactly how to train it.

Everybody in the health world talks about the importance of protein, but it still remains grossly misunderstood. What is amino acid utilization, and what does it mean for us? What are the best foods for amino acid utilization? What happens when you don't get enough essential amino acids as it relates to protein turnover, healing, anabolism effect with training?

On this episode, I’m joined by legendary physician, author and founder of LifeWorks Medical Center, BodyHealth, and PerfectAmino, Dr. David Minkoff, who shares the truth about protein we all should know about.

 

We need healthy food and supplements so we can change the trend of society and the planet to save us from extinction. -Dr. David Minkoff

 

Three Takeaways

  • Different foods have different levels of amino acids and usability. Whole eggs are the best while whey and soy are really low in amino acids, and don’t move the needle.

  • When you eat whey protein, the body can’t use the amino acid so it takes off the nitrogen you’re just left with a carb.

  • You can’t make protein out of 3 amino acids, you need 8.

At the start of the show, Dr. David shared how he got started in alternative healthcare, and how his wife’s experience with mercury toxicity led him down that path. Next, we talked about whether autoimmune disorders are being caused by toxic particulates, and why all that has a lot to do with gut health and the intestines. We talked about proteins, amino acid utilization, and the best sources of protein.

 

We also discussed;

  • Why all proteins aren’t created equal
  • Gluconeogenesis
  • Best diet for endurance athletes



The body’s ability to utilize the protein it digests isn’t just about eating any protein, it’s about eating the right kind of protein. Protein is made up of smaller units called amino acids, and in order to get the full benefit of utilization, you have to remember that not all amino acids are created equal. One gram of protein in one food isn’t the same as a gram in another, and you have to be extremely discerning about the protein you choose, because it determines how your body recovers, and how the amino acids reassemble. If you’re an athlete, a bodybuilder this is incredibly important. Remember, casein, collagen, egg whites, and BCAAs are not good enough proteins to perform the necessary functions and you can never go wrong with whole eggs.

One of the biggest issues in the nutrition conversation is that people are misinformed about what helps and what hurts their bodies. Why is it dangerous for us to be too restrictive in what we eat? How can we avoid thyroid deficiencies? Why is it so important to dial-in our sleep? On this episode, I’m honored to be joined by professional bodybuilder and Vertical Diet founder, Stan Efferding, who talks about the health issues many mainstream diets cause and how his diet rectifies them.

Optimization is the collaboration between sleep, hydration, nutrition, and training; but sleep is the mothership. -Stan Efferding  

 

Three Takeaways

  • Many diets that women adopt are terrible for their biological systems. By only eating egg whites, you diminish biotin. If you cut out red meat, you lose iron. If you limit dairy, you diminish calcium.

  • You have to be able to fuel your body relative to its energy demands, not just focusing on macronutrients.

  • When you take salt out of your diet and then sweat out the salt you have in your body, you create iodine deficiency.

At the start of the show, Stan talked about how he got started and the biggest problem he sees with a lot of people when it comes to nutrition and weight loss: being misinformed and looking for shortcuts. Next, we talked about some of the health issues women face when they restrict their diets, and the problem with taking salt out of your diet. Stan also shared how his diet helps athletes eat based on their body’s needs.

 

We also discussed:

  • How lack of sleep affects all biological processes
  • The two key factors that are necessary in weight loss
  • Why diets shouldn’t be too restrictive

The hard truth about staying healthy is that the basics like sleep, hydration, and nutrition are necessary but boring. As a result, people jump onto the more exciting elements like performance enhancing drugs and trendy diet programs which end up doing more harm than good. To be optimized, you have to fuel the body to meet its energy demands and very often that means being flexible rather than restrictive. Don’t just focus on macronutrients, because micronutrients are also key. If you can be disciplined and consistent with the right kind of nutrition, you will truly be healthy— not just healthy-looking on the surface.

Hair thinning and loss can have a negative impact on a man’s confidence, and often the people dealing with it don’t know what to do. What are some of the biggest strides medicine and surgery have made in solving this issue? How can laser light therapy, PRP, also be used to help? What does the treatment process entail? On this episode, leading hair transplant surgeon Dr. Alan Bauman shares on solutions for androgenetic alopecia.

Laser light therapy is a non-chemical, non-invasive and side-effect-free way to get better hair growth. -Dr. Alan Bauman

 

Four Takeaways

  • Laser lights cause an increase in energy production that’s going to rejuvenate skin, take away pain and improve the functioning of one of the most highly metabolic cell populations in your body: the hair follicle.

  • If you don’t have androgen sensitivity, no amount of testosterone will cause male pattern hair loss.

  • If you don’t have a viable follicle with hair over 2 mm in length, the only thing that will bring hair back is a transplant.

  • PRP for hair regeneration: There’s a dose-dependent response at the tissue level related to the concentration, and how stem cells mobilize. The more platelets concentrate, the better they mobilize and proliferate.  

At the start of the show, Dr. Alan shared how he got started, and why hair restoration doesn’t have to be painful. Next, we talked about how hair loss can impact your self-esteem and the use of low-level laser devices to regenerate growth. We also discussed whether all men on TRT will experience hair thinning or loss.

 

We also discussed:

  • How to create a physiologic regenerative effect with PRP
  • Compliance and how lifestyle plays a goal
  • The cost of a laser vs. topicals and medication

 

Losing hair is a challenge that leaves many people feeling like their youth and vitality is slipping away, but it doesn’t have to be the end of the world. Investing in a laser light is one way you can start to get your hair back. If you buy a good quality one, it will last decades. PRP is another worthy solution that can help regenerate hair growth, but time is of the essence. For any androgenetic alopecia, if you want to save the maximum amount of hair, get started soon if you want the best result over time.

People are struggling to access hormone therapy all over the world. What are the benefits of TOT that it’s critics don’t seem to see? What options are available for those who genuinely want to optimize their health? On this episode, Sam Cook and Michael Kocsis of Balance my Hormones are here to discuss the options available in the UK.

TRT should be the first line of defense for treatment of anything. -Jay Campbell

 

Three Takeaways

  • There’s very little preventative medicine in the UK (or anywhere for that matter). Most medical systems are based on a sick care model.

  • In so many patients, optimizing testosterone has been the only thing able to treat anxiety, depression and suicidal thinking.

  • The UK has a private healthcare sector where patients can access TRT. This sector actually often ends up being more affordable for the patient, meaning there is an amazing opportunity for more people to benefit from optimization.

At the start of the episode, we discussed how TRT is viewed in Europe in general, and the UK in particular. We then spoke about the different options men have for optimization- namely, injections or topical cream. After discussing the merits of each, we agreed that there is a need for treatments to be prescribed according to each individual’s biochemical needs.

 

We also discussed;

  • That a lot of the doctors simply don’t know what they’re doing with optimization because they haven’t been trained correctly
  • Why you should choose between injections and cream, based on your needs and preference
  • That it’s becoming harder for high-profile sick care figures to discredit TRT

 

The TOT revolution is only just beginning. There is still considerable pushback all over the world, and doctors continue to shy away from TOT because their training has not taught them enough about hormones. However, there is hope for the future. More and more people are able to access the correct information about optimization. Plus, private sector TOT in the UK is surprisingly affordable. The revolution is in its early stages, but will only gain momentum as it progresses.

We’re taught how to take care of ourselves when we’re sick, but not how to prevent it from happening in the first place. How does our society lead us to believe that we need to live unhealthy lifestyles? Which bad habits are we developing because they’re seen as ‘normal’? On this episode, I’m joined by the host of ‘The Lifting Dermatologist’ Youtube channel, Dr. Steven Devos, to discuss the lies we’ve been taught about a normal lifestyle.

 

Three Takeaways

In most countries, medical schools do not teach students about hormones, prevention, or nutrition at all.

People who are genuinely concerned about their health are repeatedly demonized and ‘fit shamed’ for not abiding by unhealthy norms.

Enjoyment has been prioritized in our societies, and we’ve been taught that genuine enjoyment comes from unhealthy foods.

 

We also discussed:

  • That diet is about more than eating. Alcohol consumption is not ‘clean’ eating
  • How so many doctors and ministers of health fail to lead by example with their poor lifestyle choices
  • Why pharmaceutical companies are really providing you with medication to live longer

 

Almost everything the general public knows about so-called ‘healthcare’ comes from doctors. Those doctors are influenced by pharmaceutical companies, and it’s fair to say a large portion of them prescribe medication unnecessarily. Often, a lot of the things you’re treating with medication could also be solved by a lifestyle shift. Focus on keeping yourself healthy and block out the noise that suggests you should ‘enjoy’ yourself with unhealthy habits. Real enjoyment comes when you’re at your healthiest, most optimized self.

With so many studies proving the importance and efficacy of testosterone, it’s infuriating when doctors don’t seem to take note. Why are so many medical professionals refusing to use testosterone in patients? Are any of the supposed risks even valid? On this episode, I’m joined by board-certified urologist and epigenetics expert, Dr. Tracy Gapin.

 

Three Takeaways

A lot of the supposed risks of using testosterone therapy are entirely false. For example, while testosterone was thought to be linked to prostate cancer, studies have shown that men with too little testosterone actually have a higher risk.

 

Medical schools do not teach students about the benefits of testosterone. This is a major reason why so many doctors don’t use it— they simply don’t have enough knowledge.

 

Testosterone has a bad reputation in the medical field because it has been misused for financial gain.

 

At the start of the episode, Dr. Tracy Gapin explained why he believes the current healthcare model is broken. He explained why he’s looking into preventative and proactive medicine, rather than waiting to get sick before finding solutions. We then spoke about why the medical industry needs to start looking at healthcare more holistically, and we shared observations on the depiction of testosterone in the media and in literature.

 

We also discussed:

  • That couples should get optimized together- this is a team process
  • Why you should consider doing DNA tests
  • How your environment and lifestyle significantly affect your health

For many doctors, the choice not to use testosterone therapeutically comes from a lack of knowledge, rather than bad intentions. Medical schools do not provide adequate knowledge of hormones. The reality is, there are so many factors involved in proactive medicine- from examining lifestyle to tailoring hormones to the patient’s needs. We need to take a more holistic approach to maintaining our health.

Many men are under the impression that high levels of estrogen are a bad thing, and have started taking AI’s as a result. Where does this assumption come from? Is there any truth to it at all? On this episode, medical research pioneer, Russ Scala is back to talk about the problem with prevailing views of estrogen.

 

Three Takeaways

Blocking estrogen is one of the most dangerous things you can do to your body. By taking AI’s- even in tiny doses- you’ll damage your endothelial lining.

High estrogen levels do not exist. What is often misconstrued as high estrogen levels is actually high insulin, obesity and visceral fat.

A lot of what has come to be accepted about estrogen comes from the bodybuilding industry, not the medical industry. Make sure you’re concentrating on biological facts.

 

At the start of the episode, Russ and I discussed how paying attention to hormones could help doctors cure multiple ailments. We discussed that the reason doctors don’t pay attention to hormones is because basic biology doesn’t suit pharmaceutical companies’ business models. Both of us agreed that the sheer amount of disinformation online is further affecting the way we value estrogen.

 

We also discussed;

  • Why estrogen is important for your body’s functioning
  • That testosterone is not just linked to sex- it’s a life-giving hormone essential for both men and women
  • Why you have to educate yourself, rather than relying on doctors to have your best interest at heart

So much of what we’ve come to accept as normal comes from completely inaccurate theories. The popularity of online groups, frequented by body builders taking AI’s, means that those genuinely seeking advice are likely to be given false information. This is further complicated by the fact that a lot of doctors, backed up by pharmaceutical companies, are sharing disinformation for their financial gain. At the end of the day, what we need to do is be educated so that we can take care of ourselves- because no one else will.
