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.
