From BPA, to birth control and red food coloring, we’re being constantly assaulted by artificial estrogens— and the effects on our population are catastrophic. Why makes them such dangerous, silent poisons? What are some of the most common sources? How can we make things better? On this episode, I am joined by Anthony G Jay, the author of the amazing book, Estrogeneration. We discuss just how bad this issue is and share what we can all do to protect our health.
America is not beyond fixing. We just have to make these chemicals illegal. -Dr. Anthony G. Jay
Male feminization is happening, but it’s so politically charged that doctors are scared to talk about it.
Testosterone and estrogen go all the way into the DNA and act on it directly. This is why these hormones are so potent and have so many effects.
The most common sources of artificial estrogens are parabens, phthalates, BPA, birth control, red food coloring, and atrazine.
At the start of the show, Anthony shared his story and how he got into this study. Next, we talked about some of the studies that indicate just how bad things are and reveal some of the sources of these chemicals. We also talked about some of the measures we can put in place, such as water filters.
We also discussed:
People have no idea just how much of a crisis we’re facing and how many artificial estrogens we come into contact with daily. Estrogen is so potent, and it’s something we should be alarmed about because it has the ability to alter our DNA and stem cells. We can fight it through exercise and positive estrogen regulators like sulforaphanes. Ultimately, we must avoid ingesting anything containing artificial estrogen. If we can’t avoid it, we should balance it out with optimization. That is the only chance we have.

A chronic lack of sleep leads to many biological system breakdowns and difficulties, but so few people prioritize getting a good night’s sleep. What role does our mattress play in the quality of sleep we get? What other factors affect our sleep? How can we avoid shortening the life span of our mattresses?
On this episode, mattress and sleep expert Samuel Smith joins me to talk about the importance of paying attention to sleep, and why we need to be mindful of the quality of bed we sleep in.
When your body isn’t getting enough sleep, it’s going to make up for the lack of sleep in other ways. The simplest way to do it is to store calories. -Samuel Smith
The world is starting to wake up to the importance of sleep and how much it impacts the functionality of so many of our biological processes. Sleep affects our moods, the work we do, and even our body’s ability to lose weight. We spend 1/3 of our lives on our mattresses, so it’s insanely important to find one that gives us quality sleep. When we prioritize getting 8 hours of quality sleep everyday, we’ll see benefits in every area of our lives.
The mainstream media has a lid on this subject of therapeutic testosterone and how great it is. What are the factors causing this ignorance and demonization of TOT? How has the era of toxic masculinity impacted this? What is causing the epigenetic shifts we’re seeing? And the biggest question of all - is it being done on purpose? On this episode, I talk to Dr. Jim Meehan, Dr. John Crisler and Dr. Merrill Matschke about these very important and very urgent issues in our society.
We’re going to a cliff and our hope is those of us who have elevated ourselves to understand what’s really happening at a biological level. Without that, we’re going to get left behind. -Dr. Merrill Matschke
The reasons for the demonization of testosterone range from fear and stupidity to corporate greed and biased studies.
Mainstream media is on a warpath against masculinity and it has permeated all the literature, putting testosterone in a bad light.
Men with low sperm count have a high incidence of cancer and cardiovascular disease, so paying attention to testosterone is critical.
The toxicity of our environment and food supply is making women and men more similar biologically and reproductively.
At the start of the show, I shared on my experience trying to talk to the mainstream media about testosterone optimization, and what it tells us about how people view TOT. Next, we talked about some of the key causes for this view, ranging from fear to lack of assimilation of new knowledge. We also discussed the importance of thinking differently and knowing what’s going on.
We also discussed:
The so-called experts are grossly underestimating and downplaying just how dire things are right now. The people who are asking whether the drop in testosterone and sperm count spells extinction for us are asking the right questions. Even if we have ways of solving issues like infertility, we can never forget that testosterone is also measure of men’s health and that’s why we have to keep an eye on it. Ultimately, if we don’t get a handle on this and start recognizing where the toxins are and start eliminating from our environment and food supply, this spells disaster for all of us.
There is a lot of confusion about fasting. Most of the "gurus" are talking about windows of fasting that are between 12 and 16 hours, but these windows are ineffective. Why don’t we get anything out of fasting for that long? Why is it so important to eat on our training days? Why does the real magic happen after the 20th+ hour of fasting?
On this episode, Daniel Kelly and I dispel some of the biggest myths about intermittent fasting, and share how the Metabolic Blowtorch Diet teaches a more effective fasting method.
If you can fast for 30 hours, 3-4 days a week over a 2-4 week period, you will drastically change your body composition, and you won’t lose muscle. -Jay Campbell
Takeaways from this Episode
The current messaging around intermittent fasting is actually making people miss out on a great opportunity to dramatically lose fat. Instead of fasting for 12-16 hours where we get minimal benefits, we need to learn to go over 20 hours. In that zone, our bodies become fat burning furnaces, allowing us to get shredded and lean.
We can't make the mistake of focusing on our numbers, when we should remember that our bodies are about the big picture—especially when we’re trying to drop body fat. So much happens biochemically in the brain during long fasts, and this can also be truly life-changing. In order to see these profound benefits, you've really got to use a longer duration when fasting.
Behind Big Pharma not making any money from testosterone is an even more sinister reason for the demonization of testosterone. What do the “powers that be” get from keeping us docile and unhealthy? What downstream effects of birth control and environmental toxins are we seeing today? What is the weapon of mass control nowadays? On this episode, I’m joined by Dr. Jim Meehan, Dr. Rob Kominiarek and Dr. Crisler to answer these questions.
Let’s build an army of men that are a threat to these institutionalized elitists who are out to weaken us and turn us into addicted consumers. -Dr. Jim Meehan
The system is out to make money out of us and the less optimized and healthy we are, the more money they can drain out of us.
Our lives were perfectly crafted for medical expense. Our only response is optimization and staying out of the sick care model.
One generation’s exposure to environmental toxins can change 5 generations of children.
At the start of the show, we talked about a recent article that tries to demonize testosterone, and we discussed why such articles and the continued wrong views of TOT prevail. Next, we talked about why optimized men are such a threat to the system, and why it’s so important to stay out of the sick care model.
We also discussed:
People are being controlled through consumerism now, and the institutions in power will do anything they can to keep us dependent on drugs, unhealthy, fat and entrenched in the sick care system. Not only is testosterone an inexpensive treatment for a litany of problems, it is the first line of defense against being turned into addicted consumers. The business model of these institutions is very simple. Harm kill, destroy, change the population, diminish humanity and profit from it. When we’re optimized, we can tear down the broken structures being used to manipulate a large portion of the population.
Our culture does not acknowledge the importance of the mind, body, and soul connection. Why is this causing a lot of harm to our society? How do we start to heal the masculine and bring it in alignment with the universe? When it feels like your mind, soul and body are in disconnect, how do you find that missing link?
On this episode I am joined by physician and podcaster Dr. David Kamnitzer, to have a high-conscious conversation about shifting our paradigm and being our best selves.
The soul and mind affect the body, and the condition of the body affects the mind and the soul. -Dr. David Kamnitzer
Takeaways from this Episode
A doctor who is open-minded and consciously aware wants an informed patient. They want a patient who has done their own homework.
When you’re dealing with hormones, you’re dealing with a deep level of that person’s whole incarnational expression, and you must have a multi-dimensional sensitivity.
A lot of people still believe that testosterone is steroids, and therefore a bad thing.
Our bodies are the vehicles for experience and self-expression, and if at any moment we feel like we’re not our best, this also affects our minds and souls, as well as the results we get in our lives. When these things are in alignment, we don’t have to just accept it and believe in a reality we don’t like. We can become empowered and informed and take our health into our own hands. There are powers that want to see men completely disempowered but we can fight back through optimization. Sometimes becoming aligned means optimizing our hormones, and this is a positive thing not a negative. Once we’re healed, we can become the very best physically, emotionally and mentally.
