A lot of people are in dire need of optimization, but they are being ignored and overlooked. What are some of the biggest failings of modern medicine that are causing this problem? What should doctors be paying attention to? How can we start fighting for the men that desperately need our help? On this episode, we have roundtable with Dr. Keith Nichols, Dr. Merrill Matschke, and Dr. Rob Kominiarek to talk about how medicine is falling short when it comes to deciding who gets treated.

 

Three Takeaways

  • It’s very possible to have a high level of testosterone and still have symptoms of deficiency.
  • Data and big studies do a disservice to the optimization conversation because everyone is unique.
  • Doctors aren’t being trained to avoid the occurrence of problems.
  • If we could take a preventative approach to medicine, people could live healthier and lessen medical costs.

 

At the start of the show, Dr. Nichols shared on testosterone resistance theory and how it’s overlooked in the media. We talked about the importance of paying attention to symptoms instead of numbers. The doctors shared how there’s no correlation between a number and the signs and symptoms of testosterone deficiency. We also talked about the lack of physician awareness of metformin.

We also discussed:

  • The importance of investing in your health
  • The negative effects of alcohol
  • The problems with cell phones, video games and other devices

 

There are many factors that can interfere with metabolism and action of testosterone, which is why it’s possible for a man with “normal” numbers to still experience symptoms of deficiency. Unfortunately today’s doctors are so obsessed with studies and lab results, they aren’t paying attention to the living, breathing patients in front of them. It’s important that doctors stop fearing the numbers and consider what’s at stake if more men don’t get their hormones optimized.

Obesity in children is no longer a rare occurrence. Technology has made it easier for children to play and communicate without leaving the house. What are the long-term consequences of consuming too much junk food and lacking exercise? What role do parents play in this? How can it be fixed without making your children feel frustrated? In this episode, Mike Ritter speaks about the hormonal mutations that appear in obese children over time and what can parents do about it.

If your child is living in your home and they are obese, you are guilty as a parent. -Jay Campbell

 

Three Takeaways

  • Traditional medicine is good when it comes to pathology, but it doesn’t have a holistic approach. It doesn’t delve deeper into what causes high blood sugar levels, or obesity.
  • Children who are obese or who overeat tend to suffer later in their lives as well, since it can lead to hormonal disruptions and mutations.
  • As a parent, it’s your duty to lead by example. Cook healthy meals and go outside at least an hour every day.

 

In the beginning of the podcast, we discussed how many children are suffering from obesity and what long-term effects come from carrying excess weight. We then talked about what happens when kids stay indoors and remain sedentary from an early age.

 

We also covered:

  • The importance of leading children towards a healthy lifestyle by example
  • Giving your children a choice and letting them pick what activities suit them

 

The number of teenagers and children who suffer from Type 2 diabetes is steadily rising, and it’s your responsibility as a parent to lead by example. Just telling your kids to eat healthier and exercise won’t work if you have unhealthy habits. You have to conduct yourself as a healthy parent because children imitate what they see in their own home.

One in four people have anxiety, and millions across the world are battling with depression. What is one of the simplest solutions to this problem, and why isn’t it discussed? How can parents help children who are “riding the dragon” of anxiety and depression? What supplements and minerals are helpful to people suffering from mood disorders? On this episode, Dr. Rob talks about how we can solve the anxiety and depression epidemic we are facing.

"There’s such a strong connection between low thyroid, low testosterone, low estrogen, low DHEA, low pregnenolone and anxiety and depression. It’s really remiss of a health practitioner to not look at these things." - Dr Rob Kominiarek


Three Takeaways

- If you’re suffering from anxiety, depression, or PTSD, you really need to have your hormones comprehensively examined.

- Neurotoxins like alcohol and drugs damage the intimate structures of the brain.

- Taking magnesium and zinc before bedtime will do a great job of alleviating anxiety and blockading NMDA receptors.


At the start of the show, Dr. Rob shared on his own journey with anxiety and depression, and how he came out of it. We discussed why mood disorders can be linked to low hormone levels and how substance abuse affects the brain. We also talked about what to do when you have a depressed child and the power of minerals like magnesium and zinc.

We also discussed:
- The connection between food sensitivity and neurologic disorders
- The importance of sleep to good mental health
- How opioids affect developing brains


So many people today are angst-ridden, overmedicated, and under-optimized, yet so few have had their hormones checked. There’s an intimate connection between loss of hormones and these disorders, and we can see mood disorders alleviated if this is addressed. The honest truth is: the solution is never an opioid. That’s like putting a band-aid on a wound gushing blood. Don’t underestimate the connection between the lack of hormones, minerals, vitamins to depression and anxiety.

Medicine is in a bad place right now, and the only way it can change is if a huge disruption takes place. What will the disruption entail? Why are so many people suffering from addiction and escapism? What are the keys to being optimized? On this episode, Dr. Michael Sagner goes deep on these insights in a high-level conversation.

 

Three Takeaways

  • Everything in health is connected.
  • Medicine has to be preventive, predictive, personalized, and participatory.
  • We have to leverage medical intervention, technology, and science, and make it available for people who want to be healthy.

 

At the start of the show, Dr. Sagner shares what he sees as the future of medicine, and why medicine as we know it today is going to crumble. We also discussed increasing lifespan, healthspan and performance.

We also discussed:

  • The state of global health
  • How so many people are living to escape
  • How Hollywood manipulates us


There’s nothing left for the current model of healthcare and medicine besides a huge disruption and crash. Technology and consciousness are moving at such a rate and speed that all the old brick and mortar systems cannot survive. It’s so important to stop people from going down the spiral of the sick care model. For this to happen, doctors are going to have to be less like “white coat gods”, and more like bio-engineers who want to help their patients achieve optimization.

So many men fixate on their testosterone numbers, but why is that a bad idea? Are you getting the correct test to measure your estrogen levels? What should you know about cholesterol? On this episode, we discuss how to understand certain biomarkers in a blood panel.

"It’s more important that you feel good and have no side effects than it is to have a specific number." -Jay Campbell


Three Takeaways

- It’s important to understand the oxygenation of your red blood cells.

- If you have a level of above 200 in cholesterol, make sure that you are: exercising, trying to suppress your insulin sign, and doing cardio and resistance training before you even consider going on statins.

- Estrogen is still necessary for some key functions, and you can only consider suppression when you have side effects AND the correct test for it.


At the start of the show we talked about the importance of measuring White Blood Cells and Red Blood Cells, hemoglobin and hematocrit. We talked about why keeping close track of your insulin is so necessary, and the importance of testing for estrogen the right way.

We also discussed:
- What people get wrong about erythrocytosis
- Whether taking statins is a good idea
- Measuring prolactin


The most important thing when you want to get optimized is to get your blood work done. It helps you get a clearer picture of your health, and it keeps you from going down the path of the sick care system. You have to go private, because getting this information is not how the sick care model functions, and you can easily get manipulated by a garden-variety GP. Ultimately, the more you know, the more you can optimize yourself.

A gaming addict has a quality of life score of 3 out of 10, and this is causing a huge crisis in our society. What is the root of video game addiction? What are the three ways video games wreak havoc on the brain? What can parents do to save their children? On this episode, Game Quitters founder and speaker, Cam Adair, shares his own story and explains how we can help our children live healthier and happier lives.

 

Three Takeaways

  • A lot of young men feel rejected, and they don’t have the tools and resources to deal with it. In response, they just escape into games.
  • It has been proven that there’s a 2x improvement to quality of life just after 90 days of detoxing from gaming.
  • People who are able to focus more on delayed gratification are more successful in life.
  • Fulfillment comes from engagement. It comes from being a creator, not a consumer.

 

At the start of the show, Cam shared on his story and experience recovering from video game addiction, as well as how rejection can lead young men to turn to video games. Next, we talked about how gaming affects people’s view of the real world since it is a safe space to fail. We also talked about the role parents have in this addiction crisis.

We also discussed:

  • What parents can do to stop this problem
  • Why kids need to learn emotional resilience
  • The media’s role in glamorizing video games

 

Overexposure to video games numbs our pleasure response, numbs satisfaction with other experiences in our life, ruins willpower, and harms the quality of our relationships. From an emotional, physical, and mental standpoint: detoxing from gaming takes quality of life up from 3/10, to 7/10-- in 90 days. This is how powerful it is. It is so essential that we solve video game addiction so that we can make men strong, emotionally resilient, well-adjusted and healthy.

Imbalances in the microbiota usually lead to inflammation, autoimmune diseases, and an array of unpleasant symptoms. How do we prevent and treat it? Are there any risk factors? How is our gut linked to aging? In this episode Dr. Sajad "Dr. Z" Zalzala, owner of LDN direct and Root Cause Medical clinic, talks about gut health, autoimmune disease, and what we can do to improve our quality of life.

 

Three Takeaways

  • Entrepreneurs and high-achievers who use stimulants such as high doses of coffee and Adderall are more likely to have a damaged microbiota.
  • Metformin can help you cleanse a damaged microbiota, and it’s one of the safest drugs on the market. It’s been studied for over 60 years and is derived from French Lilac.
  • The best way to activate anti-aging pathways is to give your stomach a break by following an intermittent fasting regimen.

 

In the beginning, we talked about how a damaged microbiota can lead to autoimmune diseases, and how stimulants and a bad diet contribute to it as well. Next, we talked about withdrawal symptoms on a gluten-free diet and how metformin can cleanse the microbiota.

 

We also discussed:

  • How peptides can help you lose body fat
  • The ideal fasting frame for both women and men
  • How to get rid of visceral fat and keep your cortisol levels low

 

Metformin and intermittent fasting are the best ways to cleanse your microbiota, prevent inflammation and autoimmune diseases, and lose weight. Since most inflammatory responses are triggered by a damaged microbiota, you need to remove junk food from your diet, practice intermittent fasting, and use metformin if diet alone doesn’t take care of the problem.
