Senescence, or the degradation of our DNA cells, is the reason our bodies age and damage over time. How does cell damage impact how our bodies function? How does living a pro-inflammatory lifestyle impact our health and how we age over time? Why is fasting such a powerful optimization tool? On this episode, functional and longevity medicine practice physician, Dr. Suzanne Turner, shares on senescence and what we can do about it.
As we age, the cells in our body start to die (or go through senescence), and they start to spew out inflammatory chemicals and attack our innate stem cells, making them unable to heal us.
We now live in an age where all the information about health and wellness is so readily available. A lot of older patients didn’t come up in a generation where people talked about the importance of diet and exercise.
Ketone esters are a great supplement for mediating senescence, especially when taken along with intermittent fasting. Take 5g four times a day, when you would normally eat breakfast with black coffee, and then lunch or dinner or even before bed. Dr. Turner recommends these brands: KetoneAid or HVMN.
At the start of the show, Dr. Suzanne Turner shared how she got started, and why peptides are the present and future of medicine. Next, we talked about whether neurological disorders are caused by lifestyle choices, and the impact of cellular stress and disease.

Modern living is laying siege to our endocrine, biological and spiritual systems. In order to claw back our health, we have to prioritize optimization at every level of society, from clinicians to consumers. How do we combat sickness, and expand our lifespans in a meaningful and impactful way? Why is the medical community’s panic over estrogen lab values such a huge fallacy? In our optimization regimens, how can we also make room for spiritual fitness and why it is so necessary? On this episode, we’re joined by top age management physician, Dr. Mike Carragher. He shares on challenging the sick care model, and achieving fitness in every area of our lives.
When we’re born, we have self-regulating cells. As time goes on, those cells are compromised through disease and poor nutritional choices. Peptides address these issues.
Health shouldn’t just be about living longer. It’s about making sure those lives and bodies are of good quality, and that we can move through the world and interact with it in a meaningful way.
Everything that we have that’s physical and material is a disintegrating frequency except the love in our hearts and the experiences we’ve had.
At the start of the show, Dr. Mike Carragher shared how he got started in medicine, and why he was so drawn to age management and health optimization. We also discussed how endocrine disrupting chemicals are causing the feminization of everything.

Ayahuasca is one of the most soul-changing, healing and consciousness-shifting substances known to man. It is well-known for its visionary aspect, but it also has incredible healing properties when it comes to setting our hearts and souls free of pain, trauma and emotional suffering. What is the passage of purification that takes place when we start taking Ayahuasca? What can we expect to experience when we’re on it? What is the true purpose of Ayahuasca, not the highly mainstream and commodified messaging we hear? On this episode, we’re joined by Amazonian shamanism and Ayahuasca practitioner, Zach Poitra. He shares on the power of Ayahuasca in the spiritual journey.
People who try out manifestation practice end up getting attached to the outcome, but the correct approach is allowance and acceptance with zero attachment.
When we start taking Ayahuasca, it starts out as a medicine clearing out our clogged channels and baggage. Then, it transitions into a sacrament that allows us to have the experience of ascension. Ayahuasca brings up hidden emotions, traumas and feelings to the surface so that we can integrate them, accept them and release them.
Money is an energetic currency that flows into our lives because we’re doing the right things like being of service to others.
At the start of the show, Zach Poitra talked about how he got started, and the journey he took that brought him to his first encounter with Ayahuasca. Next, we talked about how Ayahuasca works, the kinds of conditions it treats, and the experiences one can have when they take it. We discussed how to prepare mentally, emotionally and physically for an Ayahuasca experience. We also talked about the difference between using Ayahuasca as a medicine and as a sacrament.

Zach began drinking Ayahuasca in 2009. At that time he was working in Finance and while he was successful, he found himself very dissatisfied and depressed. He knew that something was "off". After some searching via other modalities, he decided to take a trip to Peru and attend a 9 day Ayahuasca & shamanic dieta retreat. Zach moved to Jenaro Hererra in 2010 and stayed in Peru until mid 2014. Upon his arrival to Jenaro Hererra, Zach began drinking Ayahuasca and doing shamanic plant dietas with the Galindo family. Zach’s main teachers were Maestro Gumercindo Galindo and Maestro Don Roldan Galindo (Gumercindo’s father).
In 2011 the Galindo family and Zach opened an Ayahuasca retreat center, La Familia Medicina. La Familia Medicina conducted Ayahuasca and shamanic plant dieta retreats from 2011 to mid 2014. In late 2013, Maestro Gumercindo Galindo gave Zach the title of "Maestro". Visit https://www.ayahuascafamily.com/ for more information or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org;
Ketogenic dieting is such a big buzzword right now, but there’s a lot of misinformation surrounding it, especially when it comes to using it for metabolic flexibility. How can we use ketosis to burn fat, without it controlling our whole lives? Why is fasting one of the most powerful metabolic tools we have in our health toolkit? How do anger, resentment and hate destroy our physical health? On this episode, I’m joined by the founder of Keto Kamp, Ben Azadi. He shares on the tools we can use to optimize ourselves mentally, spiritually and physically.
Keto and the Atkins diet are not the same. Atkins did not focus on the quality of the fats; it was high fat, high protein and low carb. Keto is high healthy fat, moderate protein and low carb.
Instead of taking energy, blood flow and resources to digest food, when we fast, all that energy gets used to heal the body, fuel the brain and tap into the divine.
There’s a big difference between what you need to do to gain health and longevity, and what it takes to put on size. Your eating should be tied to your goals.
Studies have shown that the amount of silver fillings in people’s mouths is proportional to the amount of mercury they have in their brains. Ceramic fillings are toxin-free alternative.
At the start of the show, Ben shared the transformation he had in his life, and how reading and taking responsibility were the key to the change. Next, Ben shared on the ketogenic diet, and how it differs from Atkins. We also talked about the big lie we’ve been told about mercury fillings, and how to use fasting for autophagy.

Ketogenic dieting is a tool we can use to reset our metabolism, reduce cellular inflammation and teach our bodies to burn fat for fuel. If we’re doing it right, it can allow us to meet our weight loss goals, but still give us the freedom to flex in and out of ketosis. The goal should be to use optimization techniques like this and fasting to improve our quality of life, but that doesn’t just mean in the physical sense. We also need to work on self-awareness, self-love and gratitude. Ultimately, we’re born with an empty bucket, and emotional stressors/bad health fill it up very quickly. Once all the toxic stuff overflows, that’s when we get serious illnesses, and life slips out of our hands.
