180 Nutrition -The Health Sessions.

This week we welcome to the show Brian MacKenzie. He is a human performance and movement specialist. He is the innovator of the endurance, strength and conditioning paradigm. He has studied performance and movement since 2001 with altitude, hypoxia, breathing mechanics & methods, along with heat and cold exposure. He has spent a lot of his time training and understanding in and around the water, and desert. He has participated in Ironman (Canada 2004), and has run the Western States 100 and the Angeles Crest 100 mile endurance runs. He co-authored the books Power Speed Endurance, and The New York Times Best Seller UnBreakable Runner.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  •  When it comes to training, I’ve heard you say quality vs quantity and methods are many, principles are few, please explain?
  • What areas of exercise modalities would you encourage the weekend warrior who wants a rounded approach to their health, movement and longevity?
  • You free dived with Great White Sharks. Why?
  • Where does your passion for breathwork come from?
  • You're currently collaborating with Stanford University's Neuroscience Dept. on how breath can influence our 'state', what have you discovered?
  • I was intrigued by your book Unplugged, what can the reader expect from this?

And this week, our fantastic guest is Brian Mackenzie, who is a human performance and movement specialist. Not only that, he's a top bloke and a lot of fun and just got a stack of wisdom and experience behind him, so it was great to have him on the show today. He's studied performance and movement since 2001 with altitude, hypoxia, breathing mechanics, methods along with heat and cold exposure as well. And we also dive into his more recent project, The Art of Breath, which of course I'm pretty passionate about as well. We even get into his book, Unplugged, and why he recently free-dived without a cage with great white sharks as well, which just blew my mind. So it's all in there. I don't care what you do. There's nuggets of wisdom for everyone in this podcast, and I have no doubt you're going to enjoy.

And I also want to mention, don't forget guys, we are offering all the podcast listeners a 15% discount on any of our 180 Nutrition products at the moment. All you have to do is go back to the shopping cart and enter the discount code 180 podcast and you can receive a 15% discount.

[00:01:30] Yeah, what I will mention as well is check out our new organic hemp blend protein as well, guys. It is phenomenal. We literally just launched it this week, and the laws have been changing around hemp. We've been excited to bring this protein to the marketplace as well, cause it's an all plant-based protein, and personally, I'm in love with it at the moment. Anyway, you can check that out as well, and the discount code applies for that too.

Anyway, let's go over to Brian McKenzie. Enjoy!

[00:02:00] Hi, this is Guy Lawrence. I'm joined with Stuart Cook, as always. Good morning, Stu.

Stu

Hello mate!

Guy

And our awesome guest today is Brian Mackenzie. Brian, welcome to the show, dude.

Brian

Thanks for having me, boys. Pleasure.

Guy

It's been a long time coming. Your name has popped up on different views and podcasts over the last 12 months at least. So it's like oh, we gotta get Brian on the show. So yeah, very appreciative of your time, mate.

Brian

Yeah, absolutely.

Guy

So we have a question we ask everyone when we kick off, and that is, "If a stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Brian

I don't know.

Stu

Don't speak to strangers.

Brian

[00:03:30] Yeah. Literally I'd say, "I don't know." I could equate doing yard work to that's part of my job or working out, that's part of my job, or screwing around with breathing or screwing around with a kettlebell or whatever, or walking my dogs. That's part of work, you know? It literally is, because I'm trying to understand things, connect dots, and make things happen in a way that ... you know I've been able to ... I do believe I'm fortunate, but I do believe that I've kept something that a lot of people just really ditch and think that they gotta get in, like "I gotta get a job," which I understand that. I've played that game, but I've remained curious enough to be able to develop things that have allowed me to do what it is I really want to do.

This week we welcome to the show author, speaker, comedian and internet Youtube sensation Dr. Joe Dispenza. He is an international lecturer, researcher, corporate consultant, author, and educator who has been invited to speak in more than 32 countries on five continents. As a lecturer and educator, he is driven by the conviction that each of us has the potential for greatness and unlimited abilities. In his easy-to-understand, encouraging, and compassionate style, he has educated thousands of people, detailing how they can rewire their brains and recondition their bodies to make lasting changes.

In addition to offering a variety of online courses and teleclasses, he has personally taught three-day progressive workshops and five-day advanced workshops in the U.S. and abroad. Starting in 2018, his workshops will become week-long offerings, and the content of the progressive and advanced workshops will be available online.

He’s also an invited chair of the research committee at Life University in Atlanta, Georgia.

As a researcher, Dr. Joe’s passion can be found at the intersection of the latest findings from the fields of neuroscience, epigenetics, and quantum physics to explore the science behind spontaneous remissions. He uses that knowledge to help people heal themselves of illnesses, chronic conditions, and even terminal diseases so they can enjoy a more fulfilled and happy life, as well as evolve their consciousness. At his advanced workshops around the world, he has partnered with other scientists to perform extensive research on the effects of meditation, including epigenetic testing, brain mapping with electroencephalograms (EEGs), and individual energy field testing with a gas discharge visualization (GDV) machine. His research also includes measuring both heart coherence with HeartMath monitors and the energy present in the workshop environment before, during, and after events with a GDV Sputnik sensor.

As a corporate consultant, Dr. Joe gives on-site lectures and workshops for businesses and corporations interested in using neuroscientific principles to boost employees’ creativity, innovation, productivity, and more. His corporate program also includes private coaching for upper management. Dr. Joe has personally trained and certified a group of more than 70 corporate trainers who teach his model of transformation to companies around the world. He also recently began certifying independent coaches to use his model of change with their own clients.

 

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What can we expect from your new book ‘Becoming Supernatural’?
  •  You’ve been using science to measure transformations in your workshop. What kind of transformations have you seen?
  • How does meditation changes our biology in real-time?
  • How do you handle stress?

This podcast, I think we've saved the best for last for 2018, because I thought it was absolutely awesome, and Joe was on fire today, and we go down so many rabbit holes and it was great perspective as well, because Stu hasn't done Joe's work, and obviously I'm quite involved, so we get both sides of the coin, and I just thought it made for a fantastic interview. We covered many, many topics, of course, and it's been fantastic. If you're unfamiliar with Joe's work, I just have to say sit back, enjoy, keep an open mind, and I think you're going to really love what he has to say and how this interview goes and it's probably an episode you're going to want to listen to a couple of times as well, as we dive into it.
[00:01:30]

[00:02:00] And yeah, I thought it was fantastic anyway, so I've no doubt you're going to enjoy. And I just want to mention, as well, guys, that if you are kind of loving these topics and this work around Joe ... Joe Dispenza's work, [Greg Braden's 00:01:40] work, [Bruce Lipton's 00:01:41] work, all the people that we've had on in that sort on neuroscience, mindset philosophy on the podcast, I've created a Facebook page when I'm delving into that work a little bit more. So if you want to come and join us, the Facebook groups, I should say, is called, "Let It In with Guy Lawrence". Let It In with Guy Laurence, and come back there and we can more of these discussions and stuff like that around that. Or just go back to guylawrence.com.au and you can join the group from there. You'll just have to opt into my five step morning routine, which is actually worth getting anyway. So go back to guylawrence.com.au or Let It In with Guy Lawrence on Facebook, search for that and come join us, I'd love to see you in there.

[00:02:30] Anyway, lets go over to Joe Dispenza, I loved every minute of this podcast and I've no doubt I'll listen to it a couple of times myself, because there's nuggets of wisdom in it. Let's go over to Joe.

Hi, this is Guy Lawrence. I'm joined by Stuart Cooke as always, good morning Stuart.
Stu

Hello mate.

Guy

And we welcome back to the show today our awesome guest, Dr. Joe Dispenza. Joe welcome back to the show.

Dr. Joe

Good to be with you, mate.

Stu

Ha ha, there he is.

Guy

We've actually had a few Ozzie impressions come on over the years, mate, I reckon that was the best one we've had.

[00:01:00] This podcast, I think we've saved the best for last for 2018, because I thought it was absolutely awesome, and Joe was on fire today, and we go down so many rabbit holes and it was great perspective as well, because Stu hasn't done Joe's work, and obviously I'm quite involved, so we get both sides of the coin, and I just thought it made for a fantastic interview.

Stu

Hello mate.

Guy

And we welcome back to the show today our awesome guest, Dr. Joe Dispenza. Joe welcome back to the show.

Dr. Joe

Good to be with you, mate.

Stu

Ha ha, there he is.

Guy

We've actually had a few Ozzie impressions come on over the years, mate, I reckon that was the best one we've had.

Dr. Joe

Oh God.

Guy

Just in case, I love kicking off with this question for the show, and I've no doubt I'll get a great answer this morning as well, and for our listeners who might not be familiar with your work, and because you travel so much. When somebody asks you, a stranger, what you do for a living, what do you usually say, Joe?

Dr. Joe

[00:04:00] Well it's funny that you say that because I was on a flight just the other day, and I was 40 minutes to get from one side of the airport to the other, and I was walking very quickly and I passed the person that I knew was going to be on my flight, and I knew she was going to sit next to me. I don't know how I knew that, but anyway. She got on the plane, and she looked over and she pointed at the seat, and I got up and I helped her put her bags above me, and then she sat down next to me. And I said, "So, how long have you been an attorney?" And she looked at me and she said, "What? How did you know I was an attorney?" And I said, "I just know". She said, "I work so hard on not looking like an attorney". I said, "oh I knew you were an attorney", and I said, "oh let me guess, you work for the government". She said, "how did you know that?" I said, "I don't know, I just knew"

[00:05:00] And so we started talking and she said, so what do you do. And I said, I always start off with the conservative answer, "I'm an author". And then she said, well, what do you write about? And I said, well, I write about the neuroscience and the biology of personal change and transformation. And she said, "what!" And I said, "yeah, like how do we change, how do we create a better life for ourself, how do we live with more passion and more wholeness". And from that moment on, from the time we flew ... took off to the time we landed we never stopped talking. And I had so much to do but she had question, after question, after question. And it's a topic that, I think, most people are interested in, because I think we innately believe that what this new science is telling us, we innately believe that it is possible for us, to create a better lives, better life for ourselves and to change who we are. So, it was a great conversation.

This week we welcome to the show author, speaker, comedian and internet Youtube sensation Dominic D'Agostino. He is researcher and teacher with a rich degree of experience in the fields of neuroscience, molecular pharmacology, and physiology, Dominic D’Agostino, Ph.D., serves as an Assistant Professor at the University of South Florida (USF). Commanding an impressive professional and academic background, D’Agostino laid the foundations for his career while an undergraduate at Rutgers University, during which time he received his school’s Educational Advancement Scholarship.

He has completed various research projects related to developing and testing neuroprotective and metabolic therapies for a wide range of conditions, including Central Nervous System (CNS) oxygen toxicity, epilepsy, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, wound healing, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (commonly called ALS). As a result, D’Agostino has earned a number of grants from government organizations, along with publication in such peer-reviewed journals as the Journal of Applied Physiology, Neuroscience, Journal of Neurophysiology, and the Journal of Microscopy. Named Assistant Professor at USF in 2008, Dominic D’Agostino currently pursues a broad array of research and teaching endeavors as a faculty member in the Department of Molecular Pharmacology & Physiology at the Morsani College of Medicine.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • Can you explain what ketosis is and why it matters?
  • Who benefits from ketosis the most?
  • You’re a big guy, how do you maintain your size and muscle mass while in ketosis?
  • Can you tell us a little about exogenous ketones?
  • What does your daily diet look like these days?

Shop here: http://shop.180nutrition.com.au/

 

This week, our awesome guest is Dominic D’Agostino. What a legend this guy is. I thoroughly enjoyed this podcast again. I know I say that pretty much most episodes, but it’s true. We dove into the topic of ketosis today, ketogenic diet, and we hit him up with as many questions possible to get us clarity on probably now which is the most searched diet within Google, which is the ketogenic diet, interestingly enough.

If you’re unfamiliar with Dominic’s work, he is an assistant professor at the College of Medicine, Molecular Pharmacology, and Physiology at the University of South Florida. He works to develop and test nutritional and metabolic therapies, including ketogenic diets and ketogenic agents for seizures, epilepsy, metabolic disorders, Alzheimer’s disease, ALS, muscle wasting, and cancer, to name a few. He also recently just worked on a project with NASA as well. It’s safe to say this guy is extremely well researched, knows his stuff, but more importantly is a top guy too.

If ever you’ve been wondering about the ketogenic diet, does it apply to you, we cover from all angles — from the elite athletes to the other end of the spectrum, for people whose health might be in crisis, and to us folk in the middle as well. We cover it all and hopefully it will reveal a lot more that you didn’t know about the ketogenic diet today, so I have no doubt you are going to enjoy.

Don’t forget as well guys, we are currently running a 15% discount code back at our headquarters, 180nutrition.com [inaudible 00:01:52] off all our natural products for our podcast listeners. All you need to do is go back to the shop and use the discount code “180podcast” during checkout. We’ve got things to help you support your gut, from our glutamine to our organic greens [inaudible 00:02:08] and of course our smoothie former as well. They’re all there to serve a purpose. If you haven’t tried it yet, now is the chance to give it a shot with the discount codes. That’s 180podcast during checkout.

That’s all I’m going to say today. I trust you if you’re going to leave a review on iTunes, you’re going to do so anyway, if you’re enjoying this podcast. Let’s move on to Dominic D’Agostino, this one’s awesome. Enjoy.

Hey, this is Guy Lawrence. I’m joined with Stuart Cook as always. Good morning, Stuart.

Stu

Good morning, mate.

Guy

Our fantastic guest today is Dominic D’Agostino. Dom, welcome to the show.

Dominic

Thank you for having me.

Guy

Appreciate it, mate.

Dominic

Great to be here.

Guy

It’s a great pleasure. I’ll just say as well, Stu, your camera’s just dropped off, mate. You’ve disappeared, but as long as we can hear you.

Stu

Yeah, how about that?

Guy

There you go, he’s back. [inaudible 00:03:02] matters for those people in audio. Dom, we always ask the same question on the show every week when a new guest comes on, and that is if a complete stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Dominic

Yeah, that happens sometimes. I tell them I’m a scientist. Usually I don’t go more in-depth than that.

Guy

I bet it’d be a can of worms. If they started prodding slightly, say “Yeah, what kind of scientist?” What would you say then?

Dominic

I study the brain, because my formal training is neuroscience, so … and that usually opens another can of worms, you know? They ask, “What part of the brain do you study,” or something like that.

Shop here: http://shop.180nutrition.com.au/

 And this week, our awesome guest is Dr Michael Breus, also known as, “The Sleep Doctor.” Now, I have to say, I loved this episode. His enthusiasm and knowledge for this topic was amazing. Now, we’ve covered sleep a few times on the podcast before, but again, there was so many nuggets of wisdom to come out of this and the way I thought about sleep and my own personal sleep and how we apply it. And obviously, we know how passionate Stu is about sleep as well. And it was just great and I have no doubt you’re gonna love it.
[00:01:00]

[00:01:30] He covered things from jet lag to circadian rhythms to what we can do and hacks and tips and all sorts of stuff. And it was awesome. And if you aren’t familiar with his work, Dr Michael Breus is a clinical psychologist, and both a diplomat of the American Board of Sleep Medicine, and a fellow of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. He has a specialty in sleep disorders and is only 1 of 163 psychologists in the world with these credentials and distinctions. He also appears as a clinical advisory board of the Dr Oz show, and appears on the show on a regular basis. So yes, he knows what he’s talking about.

I really appreciate it. iTunes have made it easier than ever now to leave a review on the podcast, and if you are listening to our show on a regular basis, we’d really appreciate a review just to continue to help get this message out there, and more people like yourselves can listen to the show.

JP has also been a life coach for over sixteen years helping people overcome their own difficulties and personal challenges.

Question we ask in this episode:

Why use comedy to get your message out there and have you always used this approach?

Did you expect this kind of response / popularity online and has it affected your life in anyway?

You have a new book ‘How To Be Ultra Spiritual’. How do we achieve this?

- What’s your advice for those not in a great place (depressed, stressed or unhappy).

- You’re in great shape. What are your beliefs around nutrition to help stay healthy?

**We are currently offering a 20% discount off all our 180 Nutrition natural supplement range to all our listeners.

Guy

Hey, this is Guy Lawrence from 180 Nutrition, and of course welcome to another fantastic episode of The Health Sessions, where we are connecting with leading global health and wellness experts to share the best and the latest science thinking empowering us all to turn our health and lives around. I want to apologize up front first because it’s been a few weeks since our last podcast episode, but Stu had to go back to the UK, so we took a podcast sabbatical for the last few weeks, but we are back with a vengeance because our awesome guest this week is JP Sears. I loved every minute of this episode. [00:01:00] He is the man behind the viral comedy videos, and if you haven’t seen any of them you’ve probably been either, A, not on social media, or B, living under a cave, but becoming Ultra Spiritual, and he does an amazing job of getting a great message out there, helping light up the world, but doing it with so much satire and comedy at the same time. It’s just fantastic and if you haven’t seen any of his videos, boy, definitely check them out after this podcast today. According to Wikipedia, JP Sears is a life coach, an internet comedian. He is known for his satirical parodying of veganism, gluten free ads, New Age beliefs, and other modern happy topics with his video series Ultra Spiritual. Did I tell you I’m a bit dyslexic? I can’t even get my words out sometimes. [00:01:30] Like I said, this podcast goes off in all sorts of directions and it was great to see the other side of JP today as well, as we get into some profound topics, may I say it. The other thing I wanted to mention as well, we are offering, if you haven’t tried any of our 180 products back on our website, we are offering a 15% discount for all our listeners. That’s right, you can get our famous smoothie super food mix, our greens, the l-glutamine to help sugar cravings and improve the gut health as well. If you go back on there, we even got the new bars up there now, which we’re super excited about, and of course, all these products fit in with our values and beliefs, and thousands of people are using them every single day. [00:02:00] The 15% discount code if you want to take advantage of it at the moment, you simply enter at checkout “180 podcast.” That’s 180 podcast in the discount field during the checkout, and you can enjoy 15% off at the moment. Anything else I need to add? That’s probably it at the moment. Enjoy this podcast with JP Sears. Beautiful.

Hey, this is Guy Lawrence. I’m joined by Stuart Cooke, as always. Good morning Stu.

Stu

Good morning Guy. [00:02:30]

Guy

Our awesome guest today is JP Sears. JP, welcome to the show mate.

JP

Guy and Stu. Thank you for having me on brothers. Happy to be here with you.

Guy

It’s an honor dude, it’s an honor. Now, mate, we ask one question to every guest on the show, and [crosstalk 00:02:44]-

JP

Man. Short show. I like that.

Stu

Very short.

Guy

Straight off the bat.

Stu

Short and sharp.

Guy

That is if a complete stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say? [00:03:00]

JP

[00:03:30] Honestly, as that’s been happening, my answer that I’m giving in real life is I don’t know. There’s so many facets of what I do. I think the heart and soul of what I do is I use connection and creativity to help people hopefully live more meaningful lives. My rambling on answer is I make videos, I do a lot of speaking and performing, got a book. I work with different companies, help them promote their products with brand deals. All that equals is I’m confused. Do a bunch of stuff which is all fun for me at least.

And this week our wonderful guest is Dr. Allison Siebecker. Now Allison has worked in the nutritional field since 1988, and is a 2005 graduate of the National University of Natural Medicine, where she got earned her doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine, and her Masters in Oriental Medicine. Boy, is Allison a wealth of information. I, again, biasedly, love this episode. This topic is actually a bit close to my heart, and after listening to what Allison had to say, today, I'll be going to get a SIBO Test. If you have no idea what SIBO is, don't worry about it. I still think it's a really relevant topic for us all, to at least be aware of, and especially if you're having symptoms of bloating, in the gut, all the time. Symptoms of IBS, and things like anxiety, as well, and depression, can even stem from SIBO, which is just fascinating. It is Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth. [00:01:30] Anyway, we cover all areas today. We wanted to make this episode relevant for the listener, as well as maybe, the practitioner, that wants to learn more about SIBO, as well. I'm going to get a test and if you do fancy getting a test done, yourself, on SIBO, just drop us an email through 180, and we can help direct you in the right direction, if you choose to do so. And you probably will. [00:02:00] Anyway, the other thing I wanted to mention, as well: You might've heard me talking about giving away free samples of our 180 Superfood. Where you can just have a smoothie in the morning, get a complete natural protein, wholefood hit. Replaces poor meal choices, it's a really quick and convenient way of doing so, which we love. With the free samples, plus shipping, I'm trying something different today, so what I didn't realize, after podcasting for 4 and a half years, is that, if you're actually listening to this podcast right now, on your phone, you can actually go to where it's playing. Just below the play button, on the podcast app, there's a 'Show Notes' button. If you click that, you can, within 3 seconds, click the link that directs you to free samples, and, like I said, all you have to do is pay a small shipping and handling fee. If you want to try them, and you haven't yet, I suggest you do so. That is the easiest way to do it. Well there you go, eh. You learn something new every day. [00:02:30] Anyway, lets go over to Allison. I love this episode. Enjoy. Hi, this Guy, I'm joined with Stu, as always. Good morning, Stewart.

Stu

Ow' yah goin'? How are you?

Guy

And our lovely guest, today, is Dr. Allison Siebecker. Allison, welcome to the show.

Dr. Allison

Thank you.

Guy

Well, what a topic. This is a topic, we've not covered in depth before. I tell you what, I am pumped for this episode, today. I truly am.

Dr. Allison

(laughs)

Guy

[00:03:00] Now, we ask a question to every guest that comes on the show. That is, "If a complete stranger stopped you on the street, and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?"

Dr. Allison

I'd probably say, "I'm a doctor." But you know, that's a very simple answer, but these days I do a lot more teaching. So maybe I should say I'm a teacher. Or maybe I should say, "I'm a doctor that teaches." (laughing)

This week welcome to the show Dr. Dale Bredesen. Dr. Bredesen is internationally recognized as an expert in the mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease. He graduated from Caltech, then earned his MD from Duke University Medical Center in Durham, NC. He served as Chief Resident in Neurology at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) before joining Nobel laureate Stanley Prusiner’s laboratory at UCSF as an NIH Postdoctoral Fellow. He held faculty positions at UCSF, UCLA and the University of California, San Diego. Dr. Bredesen directed the Program on Aging at the Burnham Institute before coming to the Buck Institute in 1998 as its founding President and CEO.

The uniform failure of recent drug trials in Alzheimer’s disease has highlighted the critical need for a more accurate understanding of the fundamental nature of Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Bredesen’s research has led to new insight that explains the erosion of memory seen in Alzheimer’s disease, and has opened the door to a new therapeutic approach. He has found evidence that Alzheimer’s disease stems from an imbalance in nerve cell signaling: in the normal brain, specific signals foster nerve connections and memory making, while balancing signals support memory breaking, allowing irrelevant information to be forgotten. But in Alzheimer’s disease, the balance of these opposing signals is disturbed, nerve connections are suppressed, and memories are lost. This model is contrary to popular dogma that Alzheimer’s is a disease of toxicity, caused by the accumulation of sticky plaques in the brain. Bredesen believes the amyloid beta peptide, the source of the plaques, has a normal function in the brain — promoting signals that allow some of the nerve connections to lapse. Thus the increase in the peptide that occurs in Alzheimer’s disease shifts the memory-making vs. memory-breaking balance in favor of memory loss. This work has led to the identification of several new therapeutic candidates that are currently in pre-clinical trials.

Dr. Bredesen’s novel insights into the fundamental nature of Alzheimer’s disease recently attracted an investment of $3.5 million toward a $10 million goal for initial clinical trials of these new therapeutics. This generous support came from the private venture capitalist Douglas Rosenberg, who is helping to fund the Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Network, centered at the Buck Institute. The unit is screening drug candidates to find those that can preserve a healthy balance in the signaling pathways that support memory. Dr. Bredesen’s work on nerve cell signaling is also the focus of a collaboration between the Buck Institute and BioMarin Pharmaceuticals, Inc., which is seeking treatments for a rare form of Alzheimer’s disease, early onset Familial Alzheimer’s Disease (eFAD), which may develop in people as young as 30 years of age.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • In your opinion, what causes the onset of neurodegenerative diseases?
  • Are they as common as we are led to believe, and should we be worried?
  • How do we test for NDD?
  • Is alzheimer's preventable/reversible, if so what steps should we take?
  • How important is the role of nutrition and/or functional medicine in the prevention of NDD?

We have Dr. Dale Bredesen on the show. I’ve got to just say, it never ceases to amaze me some of the information that comes out on these podcasts. I just feel like the luckiest guy alive sometimes. There’s one that myself and Stuart love today. Dale was just a champion. We get into neurodegenerative diseases today, as that’s Dale’s area of expertise. He is a internationally recognized expert in the mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease. [00:01:00] He’s also come out with a new book, which is a New York best seller, The End of Alzheimer’s. It was an instant New York Times success. Now the book, as well, is covering this groundbreaking plan to prevent and reverse Alzheimer’s disease. That fundamentally changes how we understand cognitive decline. But there are so many valuable lessons within this podcast for all of us, whether we know anyone with a neurodegen- … I can’t even get the words out, neurodegenerative disease, or not. [00:01:30] Yeah, just get into it. Enjoy it. There’s quite a lot of technicality in here as well, but it’s definitely worth a couple of listens. If you know anyone that is suffering from neurodegenerative diseases, then please share this podcast with them, because I think there’s definitely hope. This podcast will inspire them. It was just, yeah, phenomenal, and I’m keen to try and get this message far and wide. [00:02:00] The last thing I want to say before we go over to Dale is that if you are enjoying the shows, guys, I would love you to leave a review, five star it, and subscribe it, just to continue to help us get this word out there. I think we’re three reviews short of 100 reviews for here in Australia or anywhere. That’s fantastic. If you could be one of those three to get us over the line, that would be brilliant. Anyway, let’s go over to Dr. Dale Bredesen. This podcast is awesome. Enjoy! [00:02:30] Hi, this is Guy Lawrence. I’m joined with Stuart Cooke, as always. Good morning Stuart.

Stu

Hello.

Guy

Our awesome guest today is Dr. Dale Bredesen. Dale, welcome to the show.

Dr. Dale

Thanks very much for having me.

Guy

Look, it’s fantastic, mate. We always kickoff and ask the same question to all our guests when they come on the show. That is, if a complete stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Dr.Dale

I do everything possible to see if we can improve people who have neurodegenerative illness. [00:03:00]

Guy

Beautiful, perfect. I couldn’t say it any better. The other thing we always ask as well, Dale, is, would you mind just filling us a little bit in of your journey, your background, and what led you to be so passionate about this work, and making waves in the industry?

Dr. Dale

[00:03:30] Yeah. I came from a different place than most people who are doing this sort of medicine today. I came from a very classical science background. I was interested in mathematics and chemistry when I was a kid. I went to Caltech, and spent time at MIT as well for those reasons, working in chemistry. And then decided that if we were going to do something … I got very, very interested in the brain. When I was a freshman in college, I read a very interesting book called The Machinery of the Brain. I got very excited about that and kind of got hooked for life on neuroscience. [00:04:00] But I realized that if I was going to make any inroads into the illnesses that affect the brain, I really needed to go to medical school. So I went to medical school and got a lot of criticism for being a scientist wanting to go to medical school. But I went into neurology, and as you know, neurology has a long history of being tremendous diagnosticians. And, of course, Sherlock Holmes was actually based on a real neurologist. But in general, neurologists have been known to be the group that does not do much about the treatment side, very good with diagnosis, not so great, not so successful with treatment. And the diseases, no question, they’ve been very, very difficult.

This week welcome to the show Dr. David Hamilton. David has a first class honors degree in chemistry, specializing in biological and medicinal chemistry. He has the slightly geeky honour of having achieved 100% in his 3rd year university degree exam in ‘Statistical Mechanics’, which is a branch of quantum physics applied to chemistry.

After completing his PhD, he worked for 4 years in the pharmaceutical industry, first developing drugs for cardiovascular disease and cancer, then a year managing leadership and change projects. During this time he also served as an athletics coach and manager of Sale Harriers Manchester, one of the UK’s largest athletics clubs, leading the Junior Men’s team to three successive UK finals. Upon leaving the pharmaceutical industry, he co-founded the international relief charity Spirit Aid Foundation and served as a director for 2 years.

While writing his first book (2004-2005), he taught chemistry (main) plus ecology and mathematics (secondary) at West College Scotland (formerly, James Watt College of Further and Higher Education) and tutored chemistry at the University of Glasgow.

He’s now a bestselling author of 8 books (No’s 9 and 10 are due out in 2017) published by Hay House UK, and offer talks and workshops that use science to inspire – fusing neuroscience, the mind-body connection, kindness, and philosophical and eastern spiritual teachings. He also writes a regular blog on his website as well as occasional blogs for the Huffington Post (US edition) and Psychologies Life Labs, and is a columnist for Soul and Spirit Magazine. In 2016, David won the Kindred Spirit, ‘Best MBS Writer Award’.

He has been featured in numerous publications, including ELLE, RED Magazine, Psychologies, YOU Magazine, Good Housekeeping (both UK & US), and several newspapers.

You might wonder how he got into writing on the subjects he does. In his own words, “Well, during my time in the pharmaceutical industry, I was fascinated by the placebo effect – how people improve through believing they are receiving a drug – so I began to study mind-body interactions in my spare time. I decided to leave the pharmaceutical industry after 4 years because I wanted to educate about the mind-body connection, help people to believe in themselves more, and spread a little more kindness in the world in my own way.”

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • You specialized in biological and medicinal chemistry. Why did you decide to look at the placebo effect?
  • How powerful do you think the placebo really is?
  • What inspired you to write your new book, The 5 Side Effects of Kindness?
  • What are the 5 side effects of kindness?
  • Can you tell this listeners what "molecules of kindness are?"

We have on the show Dr David Hamilton, and I have to say I truly loved every minute of this show. Now David has a first class honors degree in chemistry, specializing in biological and medicinal chemistry. After completing his PhD he worked for four years in the pharmaceutical industry, first developing drugs for cardiovascular disease and cancer, then a year managing leadership and change projects. Now he is also a best selling author of 8 books published by Hay House in the UK, and offers talks and workshops that use science to inspire, fusing neuroscience, the mind body connection, kindness and a philosophical and eastern spiritual teaching, so yes you can see why I loved this episode so much.

[00:01:30] [00:02:00] And what I loved about David's journey, A) he is just an upbeat positive awesome dude, but from that as well we get stuck into the placebo at first and what he was seeing from back in his pharmaceutical days, and comparing that to the actual drugs people were taking, which is just fascinating, and then we get into his new book, the Side Effects of Kindness, and he talks at it from a biological and physical perspective as well of what is going on, and it was just fascinating, and yeah it was awesome, so if you want to do an act of kindness after listening to this show, feel free to leave us a review on iTunes, or actually share this episode with someone that you think might really appreciate it. Because there is a lot in here and I have no doubt you will enjoy it as well. Now you might have heard me mention on a couple of podcasts in the past, I've personally myself set up a closed Facebook group and the group is designed, if you kind of enjoy this information and this content, me personally I have a lot of interest in meditation, neuroscience and the changes that are going on within myself and my life, and it has had a huge positive impact on me over the last 3 or 4 years as I have been exploring a lot of it. [00:02:30] Anyway I have created this Facebook group called Guy Lawrence Let It In, and if this kind of stuff inspires you, you enjoy it and you want to hang out with like minded people, come on over and, yeah I will welcome you into the group and come and introduce yourself and let me know you found it on the podcast. Anyway, so I just want to mention that. It is Guy Lawrence Let It In, just do a Facebook search. Anyway lets go over to Dr David Hamilton, this episode is awesome. Hi this is Guy Lawrence, I am joined with Stuart Cook as always, good afternoon Stu.

Stu

Hello mate.

Guy

And our awesome guest today all the way from the UK, is Dr David Hamilton. David, welcome to the show.

David

Oh well, thanks very much, nice to be here. [00:03:00]

Guy

It is a pleasure mate, and we ask one little question just to kick start the show to all our guests, and that is if a complete stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

David

I write books and I give talks. In a nutshell. I would probably tell them the kind of topic that I wrote on but it depends on how ... if we were moving fast in opposite directions. [00:03:30]

This week we welcome to the show Stephen Jepson.

At age 75, Stephen Jepson is living proof of his philosophy of lifetime fitness called Never Leave the Playground.  Become smarter & sharper now.   He rides a unicycle, juggles while balancing on a bongo board, throws knives and plays jacks with both hands, walks a tightrope, swam across Iowa's Spirit Lake at age 66, and has won over 80 gold medals in swimming since age 65. And more. Much more.

He knows the secret is to "just keep moving" through constant play, not exercise. He's developed toys for all ages and degrees of physical fitness to use throughout our daily lives so we never have to leave the playground no matter where we are or what we're doing.

No matter how impaired the body has become through neglect or disease or aging, consistent movement is imperative to regain and maintain balance, stability, coordination and growth. He calls it "age proofing the brain and body," and it can begin at any age or any condition of the body.

This week welcome to the show Josh Sparks. Josh has spent the past 14 years in high growth leadership roles as CEO of sass & bide, Managing Director with Urban Outfitters Inc, and CEO of Thom Browne New York.

As a lifelong health and fitness enthusiast, and with five years of powerfully personal experience with ancestral health protocols, Josh was consistently astounded at the lack of any authentically healthy dining in top retail centres around the world. Recognizing the transformational potential for a health and wellness brand founded on evidence based dietary principles, and excited by the opportunity to genuinely enhance how customers look, feel and perform, Josh brought together his many years of professional experience and personal passion to create THR1VE.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What are the main motivations behind the food industry? Profit? Wellness?
  • How do we take people from thinking about wellness to actually empowering them and taking action?
  • Has the word ‘paleo’ had it’s day? Where do you see the nutritional and health/wellness trends going?
  • You’re in good shape. What are your fat loss tips for the time poor?
  • Who inspires you in the health & wellness circles?

Shop: http://shop.180nutrition.com.au/

This week, we welcome back to the show the awesome Josh Sparks who is the founder of THR1VE. It was always a pleasure getting Josh back on the show and we get into some fantastic topics today including, where is the food industry and where is it going?

[00:01:00] Are we seeing any improvements ... Josh is in the firing line every single day with his THR1VE cafes ... What are the main motivations behind the food industry and world? Is it profit, is it wellness and why we have to be proactive and educate ourselves and know exactly what's going on so we can make better nutritional food and health choices moving forward. Josh also shares his top tips for fat loss and what he's discovered over the years and what he does and how he maintains his shape. Josh is the same age as me and, which is 43, I think, too and he's in fantastic condition, he looks after his health tremendously.

[00:01:30] We also get into his recent discoveries on longevity and what he did with Dr. John Hart, who was a fellow guest on the podcast as well. We get into that topic and we also get into a whole lot more including Josh's ready-made meals and what he's doing with THR1VE and making actually good nutrition much more accessible for people that are on a budget and have difficulty with time on their hands, which is a lot of us. No doubt, you're gonna enjoy today's episode.

[00:02:00] I just wanted to mention as well guys, if you do listen to our podcast on a regular basis through iTunes, please leave us a review. It takes two minutes to do, to say whatever you need to, whatever is honest, hopefully positive. If these shows are actually helping you and you get a lot out of them, a simple review, subscribe and a five star, goes a long way to helping us get the message out for other people that are trying to make the changes and find this content online, so that would be awesome. Anyway, let's go over to Josh Sparks. This one's a pillar.

Hi, this is Guy Lawrence, I'm joined with Stuart Cook as always. I'll say good afternoon Stu.

Stu

Hello mate, how are you?

Guy

Awesome man and out fantastic guest today is Josh Sparks. Josh welcome back to the show.

Josh

Thank you so much for having me back, Gug and Stu.

Guy

[00:02:30] Josh, I got to say mate, you've made the next level 'cause you have now returned to the podcast. You've made like the elite few that have come on the podcast more than once.

Josh

That's actually been my ambition, that's been my dream. We've got a little jar of awesome up there, so I'm gonna write a note and put it in the jar of awesome.

Guy

Yeah, totally man, totally. Well, it's been a while, I think it's like two years almost, so it goes quickly, absolutely [crosstalk 00:02:48]

Josh

It's flown by. I haven't seen you guys in about that time, but it feels like not that long ago we were together doing the THR1VE conference on the [crosstalk 00:02:57]

Guy

You think? [00:03:00]

Josh

Mate, you're looking fantastic. You like reverse aging or something, I don't know. \

Stu

There you go, that was a big royal [inaudible 00:03:06] Take that mask off, Guy and we can get into [crosstalk 00:03:12] okay?

Guy

Yeah [crosstalk 00:03:13]

Stu

Mission Impossible [crosstalk 00:03:14]

Guy

 [00:03:30] I know, I know. Josh, just in case ... I ask everyone on the podcast this question. I don't think I actually asked it to you last time you came on. Just in case our listeners haven't been listening for the last two years, which is probably quite a few of them, if a complete stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Josh

 [00:04:00] Oh wow, well, I would say that I'm the founder and CEO of THR1VE, which has been in my life for the last four and a half years or so. I've had an interesting journey pre-THR1VE. I spent 15 years building fashion labels of all things in Sydney and in New York and then in Philadelphia. It's been a long and winding road, always focused on consumers. I've never done business to business, always business to consumer. I feel like I'm still selling to the same people, I'm just not selling them superficial surface stuff anymore. I'm selling them nutrition to actually change them from the inside out, rather than the reverse.

Guy

Yeah, I was gonna say, if they asked you what THR1VE was, what would you say then?

Josh

[00:04:30] Well, our little tagline is extraordinary health, made deliciously simple. It actually kind of is a good summary. What we're trying to do is take the best of high performance nutrition, the best of nutrition science, match it up with our chefs to make it delicious, 'cause if it's not, there's not really much point and then make it as simple as possible. By that, we mean, accessible in terms that you can get it wherever you are, whenever you want and not crazy prices, not café restaurant prices, trying to make it available to as many Australians as we can.

Hey, this is Guy Lawrence of 180 Nutrition and of course, welcome to another stellar episode of the Health Sessions. Every week we connect with leading global health and wellness experts to share the best and latest science thinking, and empowering us all to turn our health and lives around. [00:00:30] This week we are doing with the awesome Shaun O’Gorman. Boy did I love this show.Shaun is just a tower of strength, man. He set up what’s called the strong life project. Shaun has got a phenomenal story and background in what he’s doing. [00:01:00] To put it shortly, Shaun spent 13 years in the police force. We’ll get in to some of the things that he had seen and witnessed and had to deal with on a daily basis in the particular part of the force that he was in, in the dog squad. It’s quite incredible actually. He talks about his PTSD, and his depression, and his suicidal thoughts, and how he got through that and has come back out the other side to set up the Strong Life project, as a place for men in particular. Even that have been in the military or the police force, not necessarily, but where they can actually start to be open and talk about these things. [00:01:30] Shaun is sharing all his wisdom, what he’s learned and what he feels is necessary to turn these things around and then become a leader in your own family and your life. In Shaun’s words, he says, “This being a loving, connected, and powerful leader means you’re the best husband, partner, father, friend, and colleague you can be, whilst not being influenced by other people’s opinions.” It was just awesome and I loved every second of it. I have no doubt you’re going to get heaps out of this today. If you do know anyone that might be going through a bit of tough time or a dark place at the moment, then definitely, definitely share this episode with them after you listen to it because it’s things like this that can really shape and help people, the direction of their life moving forward, especially when it’s in that sort of place. It was awesome. [00:02:00] [00:02:30] Don’t forget guys, I want to mention as well, that we are giving away free samples of our 180 Super Food Protein Blend at the moment. All you need to do if you haven’t tried it, is come back to 180nutrition.com.au and click the big banner on the home page, and that will lead you where you can get your free sample. We just ask for a small fee in shipping and handling, which we think is fair enough. We always say, replace your breakfast with it.

All right guys, that is awesome. Let’s go over to Shaun. Enjoy the show, this is a great one. [00:03:00] Hi, this is Guy Lawrence, I’m joined with Stuart Cooke. Good morning, Stuart. Oh.

Stu

Hello, mate. How are you?

Guy

Wow, there’s a huge delay then. And our awesome guest today is Shaun O’Gorman. Shaun welcome to the show.

Shaun

Thank you, boys. Pleasure to be on.

Guy

Awesome, fantastic. Now, Shaun we ask everyone on the show that comes on, If a complete stranger stopped you on the street and ask you what you did for a living, what would you say? [00:03:30]

Shaun

A couple of things. But, the main one is Critical Stress Consultant. So, what I do now is help people with deal with stress, deal with PTSD, deal their mental health, and their life, so that’s the term I came up with.

This week welcome to the show Penny Tralau. She's got a company called Mould Rescue wherein she assesses your home and checks the mould condition and how to get rid of it. She shares some practical tips on how we can take care of our home and adjust our lifestyle moving forward to prevent moulds from growing.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • Why should we worry about mould? What are the potential health effects

Hey everybody this is Guy Lawrence, of course, of 180 nutrition, and welcome to another awesome episode of health sessions. Where we're constantly connected with leading global health and wellness experts to share best and the latest science and thinking. Empowering us all to turn our health and lives around. And this week we're doing it on the topic of mold, and our awesome guest is Penny Tralau. Now, Penny has got a company called Mould Rescue, and she basically goes into your home and assesses the mold situation, and what you can do about it. [00:01:00] This episode isn't so much about the harmful effects that mold can cause on you, symptoms that can be related to around cold and flu symptoms, asthma, skin conditions and so forth. But this more of how we can start looking at our home. How we can adjust things moving forward. And how we can create prevention. And of course if you need to assess it even deeper, then somebody like Penny is perfect for that job. [00:01:30] So it was great to get stuck in and quiz Penny on all things mold today. I certainly learned a lot myself, and it's a topic we've not covered on the podcast before, especially coming from this angle as well. So it was fantastic to hear what Penny has to say. And I have no doubt after listening to this episode of the podcast; you're going to be looking around your home in a very different way, which is very cool. So it's bringing awareness to this topic in general, which is what we wanted to do. So we're very grateful for Penny coming on the show. [00:02:00] And I just wanted to mention as well, guys you might have noticed that we have currently got a promotion running, where we are giving free samples of our 180 super food protein blend away. All you need to do is go back to 180Nutrition.com.au and there's a banner on the homepage. You just click that, and all we ask is that you cover a small fee of shipping and handling. I'm sure if you've been listening to our podcast for a while, you know exactly what our super food blend is all about, and how to use it. And if not, the best place to start is with breakfast to help you cut out those processed meals and start with the smoothie using the 180. Anyway, learn a bit more because I promise you we've had thousands of people that are walking your path and we've had some fantastic results by helping people eliminate processed foods and eating something much more nourishing that's got healthy fats, carbs, and good fiber of course, and a good source of protein. [00:02:30] Anyway guys, let's go over to Penny. Enjoy everything mold and don't forget, if you want a free sample, go back to 180Nutrition. com.au on the homepage, click the banner. Enjoy guys. Hey, this is Guy Lawrence. I'm with Stuart Cook, as always. Good morning Stu.

Stu

Good morning, Guy. Guy: And our lovely guest today is Penny Tralau. Penny, welcome to the show.

Penny

Good morning. How are you guys?

Guy

We're fabulous. Thank you.

Stu

Good. Thanks Penny.

Guy

Looking forward to this topic. We've not covered it on the show before. So I have no doubt it's going to be very interesting. [00:03:00] So Penny, everyone I ask on the show at the beginning, is if a complete stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Penny

I said, I would be a certified mold remediator.

This week welcome to the show Tim Noakes.  Prof Noakes was born in Harare, Zimbabwe in 1949. As a youngster, he had a keen interest in sport and attended Diocesan College in Cape Town. Following this, he studied at the University of Cape Town (UCT) and obtained an MBChB degree in 1974, an MD in 1981 and a DSc (Med) in Exercise Science in 2002.

In the early 90s, Noakes teamed up with Morné du Plessis to drive the founding of the Sports Science Institute of South Africa (SSISA). The Institute was built to provide a facility that would primarily fund research in sports performance. The application of this research would provide sports personnel of all disciplines with the means to improve. Noakes and du Plessis also wanted to use it as a platform to build public interest in the country’s top sports people and build state pride.

Prof Noakes has published more than 750 scientific books and articles. He has been cited more than 16 000 times in scientific literature, has an H-index of 71 and has been rated an A1 scientist by the National Research Foundation of South Africa for a second 5-year term. He has won numerous awards over the years and made himself available on many editorial boards.

He has a passion for running and is still active, running half marathons when he can. He is a devoted husband, father and grandfather and now, in his retirement, is enjoying spending more time with his family.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • You’ve been a huge voice in making changes within the dietary guidelines over the last few years, how has the response been?
  • Can you tell us about the ‘Ocean View Project” and the results you have seen so far.
  • What results have you seen in reversing diabetes?
  • You’ve written a book called ‘Waterlogged’. Can you explain the concept behind this book and overhydration
  • On the topic of longevity should we favour a specific type of exercise?
  • And much much more.

[00:01:00] Hey, this is Guy Lawrence of 180 Nutrition. Welcome to another stellar episode of the Health Sessions, of course, where we are connected with leading global health and wellness experts to share the best and the latest science and thinking, empowering us all to turn our health and lives around. This week we welcome back to the show the one and only, awesome, Mr. Professor Tim Noakes from South Africa. Now, if you're unfamiliar with Tim's work, he has published more than 750 scientific books and articles. He's been cited more than 16,000 times in scientific literature. He has a H-index of 71 and has been rated an A1 scientist by the National Research Foundation of South Africa for a second five year term. Amazing. He has won numerous awards over the years, and made himself available for many editorial boards, and of course, has a very famous book. The Law of Running is considered the bible of the running sport itself. It was just a privilege to get Tim back on the show today and pick his brains on what he's been up to over the last few years.

[00:01:30] Now, if you're unfamiliar with Tim more recently ... Well, I say more recently, a few year ago, which we get into today, he kind of flipped his way of thinking around fueling for sport where he had been for 33 years promoting the low-fat, the carb loading, endurance sport diet for athletes. Then had a complete turn around and came out with that, which is a huge deal. We get into that today, and over the five years since, I think, this has happened what he's been up to and his fights against type II diabetes as well in South Africa. We get into sports recovery, sports hydration from his famous book, Water Logged, as well.

[00:02:00] It's all in there and you are going to love it. If you do love the show guys, just share it with people that you think are going to benefit from this kind of information because we're getting more and more people listening to our podcast. We're getting more and more emails and from people that are just having these epiphanies around their health, and it's definitely helping everyone, including ourselves as well. Help spread the love, share the word, and get this information out there with people, because it does change people's lives.

Anyway guys, let's go over to Tim. Hit me up on Instagram stories if you enjoy the episode. Oh, I've also started my own little Instagram channel as well, which is Guy H. Lawrence, which you can follow me on there as well, outside of 180 Nutrition. Awesome guys. Let's go over to Tim Noakes. Enjoy.

Hi, this is Guy Lawrence. I'm joined with Stuart Cooke as always. Hello Stu.

Stu

Hello, mate.

Guy

Our fantastic guest today is Mr. Tim Noakes. Tim, welcome back to the podcast.

Tim

Thanks very much Guy, lovely to be back with you.

Guy

It's phenomenal, mate. I can't believe it's been over three years since you last come on, and I have no doubt a lot has happened since then that we can get into today.

Tim

Yeah.

Guy

Tim, there's a question that we ask everyone on the show at the moment and that is, if a complete stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Tim

At present I'm retired, so I do what I want to do. Essentially, I'm finishing up a five-year trial against me on the basis that I gave information on Twitter, which was considered unconventional. What we did was, we put the low-fat diet on trial. We said, "Okay, if you're going to try me for this nonsense, let's see whether there's any evidence that the low-fat diet is healthy." So we put it on trial, and the trial ended on April the 21st and I won 10-0.

[00:00:30] Hey, this is Guy Lawrence on 180 Nutrition and welcome to another episode of The Health Sessions where of course we are connecting with leading global health and wellness experts to share the best and the latest science and thinking and empowering to turn all of our health and lives around. And this week we are doing it with the awesome Lesley Maxwell. Now, if you're not familiar with Lesley, she redefines what it means to be 50 and fabulous. I'll tell you, she truly does, I mean it's amazing. She's a mother of three, she's Melbourne based and has more than 20 body sculpting titles to her name and represented Australia in New York where she won the prestigious Miss USA figure championship. Amazing.

[00:01:00] Author of Get the Body You Want and her new book, Training to Train, which we discussed today. And, she's an Oxygen ambassador, plus Oxygen cover girl and Lesley is also a regular, ah, can't get my words out, contributor to Oxygen magazine and has appeared on TV and ACA and newspapers and so forth. And it was fantastic to tap into the topics that she discusses today, especially when it comes to training. Weight training especially, for people over 50 years old, which is phenomenal. And I'm a huge fan of Lesley's message and what she shares with us today and I have no doubt if you're not doing any weight training, this is going to inspire you. And I certainly am a big believer in it as well. So, I hope you enjoy the episode!

[00:02:00] And I just wanted to mention as well, guys, that we are currently giving away free samples of the 180 Superfood Blend, protein Superfood Blend. So, if you haven't tried it yet and you're keen, then hopefully this little announcement is going to motivate you to go back to 180nutrition.com.au where there's a big banner there saying, "Grab your free sample!" So, if you want to try it and want to know what all the fuss is about and why thousands of other people who have walked your path in the past are using 180, making smoothies out of it and actually getting rid of some of those unfavorable foods and replacing it with the 180 smoothie, then you can go and try it out. All we ask in return is that you pay a small shipping and handling fee, and we will give you four serves for nothing. There you go, how's that for a deal? Anyway, go and check it out and hit me up on Instagram if you do so. Anyway, let's go over to Lesley. Enjoy the podcast and of course when it comes to iTunes guys, you know what to do. Awesome.

Hi, this is Guy Lawrence. I'm joined with Stu Cooke, as always. Hello Stu.

Stu 

Hello Guy!

Guy

And our lovely guest today is Lesley Maxwell. Lesley, welcome to the show.

Lesley

Hi Stu, hi Guy! Thank you so much for having me, it's great to be here.

Guy

[00:03:00] The privilege is all ours, right? It's a true honor. Now, just to kickstart the show Lesley, we ask a similar question to everyone at the start and that is, if a complete stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Lesley

[00:03:30] Well, I actually change people's lives. Truly, I give them their lives back again because often people become so, you know at a certain age they think they should go downhill instead of revamping and getting better and stronger and healthier. And I feel I honestly give people a new lease of life and I give women, you know, help them get their sexy back and feel great and that's what life is. We've got so much to offer, and so much life to live. It's a shame that you shouldn't do that, just because you get to 50 or whatever it is they feel it's shut off point. When we can really improve our bodies and health and go on and live this amazing life in the best health and strength we can. So, it feels great.

This week welcome to the show Bronnie Ware. Bronnie’s calling is to lead by courageous example; a calling she honours with integrity. Having sat by bedsides of the terminally ill for several years, she knows the pain of dying with regret. Bronnie also understands the value of humour and being real. Consequently she exercises her power of choice with consciousness on a daily basis.

While acknowledging how much courage it can take to truly allow all we deserve through, Bronnie believes we are all worthy of joy. Her work and teachings draw on first-hand experience, always delivered with relatable honesty. With a grounded attitude and great sense of humour, Bronnie connects to people from all walks of life.

Her incredible life experience goes well beyond the years with dying people and has taught her how much we are all alike, rather than different. This attitude also connects Bronnie easily and delightfully to her audience worldwide, particularly once they experience her energy in person at live events.

One of her favourite things is getting people off their computers and back to real-life conversations and experiences. Bronnie's life so far has also taught her how crucial it is to enjoy the precious gift of time we are given, by courageously living as true to our heart as possible. With a passionate love of keeping life simple, Bronnie is also a master storyteller and a powerful teacher of courage.

Her favourite role is as a mother. Her favourite teacher is nature.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What were the top 5 regrets of the dying that inspired you to live life differently?
  • How to we go beyond our fears and self-doubts so we don’t live a life of regret?
  • What 3 tips would you give someone if they wanted to make substantial change in their lives so they don’t live with regret?
  • You have a new book called ‘Bloom’ out. What can we expect?
  • Space is a big theme in your new book Bloom, how has this shaped your life?

Shop: http://shop.180nutrition.com.au/

This week our awesome guest is Bronnie Ware. And boy, did I love this episode. I mean, it's a phenomenal story, and if you haven't heard of Bronnie before, we're obviously going to get into it well in the podcast. So make sure you stick around for this one. But, essentially she calls herself a fifteen-year overnight success, because she wrote a phenomenal book called "The Top Five Regrets of the Dying." It went on and became a worldwide, huge phenomenon, and sold over a million copies, and then's gone on to do amazing things ever since. She shares her findings and teachings and how she's applying them things into her own life as well.

[00:01:30] What I love so much about this message today is that it just reminds us that life is not infinite. We do have a limited time here, and these messages are fantastic to keep us in check and actually remind us and ask ourselves the questions about what are the most important things in life and are we applying them, are we doing them, and to live with courage and step forward and take that on. Because ultimately, like I always remind myself every day, is that all we have is now. All we have is this moment, right? Even though we spend so much time in the future or the past or whatever. And Bronnie just articulates it so well today, and she's just awesome. And it was a real privilege to have her on the show. So, I have no doubt you guys are going to enjoy. Sit back, and make you contemplate the way we're doing things, which is great, which is great.

Now, guys, I just want to give a shout out for our latest podcast review. We love them. Please keep them coming in, because it helps with the rankings and helps spread the word so other people just like you can listen to these episodes. But, it's from Katie Meredith. Thank you, Katie. She said, "I've been binge-listening to the guys of 180 for the last month due to a new long commute. I'm hooked. They're easily the most engaging, informative, and easy to understand podcast about nutrition, exercise, sleep, and everything to make you a better you. All the speakers explain the concepts thoroughly, but also give simple and easy ways to implement the tips into our everyday lives. It's accessible, real information. I am an exercise physiologist, and I've directed many of my clients, as well as my parents, to The Health Sessions, who also reap the benefits. Can't wait to hear more."

Big thanks for that review. Like, awesome. I really appreciate it, guys.

And, anyway, let's stop talking. Let's go over. You know what I do. Enjoy the episode, and I'll see you soon. Bye.

Hey, this is Guy Lawrence. I'm joined by Stuart Cooke, as always. Good morning, Stu.

Stu

Good morning, Guy.

Guy

And our lovely guest today is Bronnie Ware. Bronnie, welcome to the show.

[00:03:00]
Bronnie

Thanks a lot, guys. Welcome. Thank you.

Guy

It's going to be awesome. I'm so excited about this. Through a mutual friend of Mr. Marcus Pierce ... I know he speaks highly of you. And I've just been interested, Bronnie, because I've just been constantly seeing you come up ... Since you've been on my, kind of, radar, I'm starting to see you everywhere, and your books and the podcasts and everything, and it was like, Oh my God, we have to get Bronnie on the show. This is phenomenal. So thank you for your time, Bronnie.

Bronnie

Oh, it's my pleasure. Thank you.

Guy

So the first question I ask everyone on the show, Bronnie, is if a stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Bronnie 

What I did for a living? Okay, well, I'd say I'm a teacher of courage.

Guy

[00:00:30] [00:01:00] Hey everybody. Guy Lawrence of course from 180 Nutrition, and welcome to another fantastic episode of the Health Sessions, where we are connecting with leading global health and wellness experts to share the best and latest science and thinking, empowering people to turn their health and lives around. This week we have the awesome guest of Dave O’Brien, and he is the founder, I should say co-founder, of this amazing facility in Melbourne called Fifth Element Wellness. David has worked with some fantastic people including Ido Portal, Charles Poliquin, James LaValle, worked on blood markers and biochemistry, and also Louie Simmons, strength training, posterior chain and so forth. I’ve got to know Dave, he’s become a very good friend of mine and he is a wealth of knowledge and one of the first people I’ll pick up the phone to when I need to get the question answered, and to get him to share his wisdom on the podcast today was phenomenal. We tackle his own story from how he burnt out to chronic fatigue and adrenal fatigue massively, and the steps he started to take to reverse that around. Not only that, but the things that he sees on a regular basis through his Fifth Element Wellness, and the steps we can take to adjust accordingly moving forward, to create our most optimum wellness and health and the best versions of ourselves.

[00:01:30] [00:02:00] Now this goes off in all sort of directions. We cover many many topics, like I said adrenal fatigue, the fitness industry in general, movement, where we should be starting from when it comes to exercise as well, and we get into hormonal function as well. You name it, it’s in there. Probably a podcast you’re going to listen to two or three times to make sure you understand what’s going on. It goes deep in places, but in other parts as well we have a really good time, and I loved every minute of it and I have no doubt you will too. I will mention the Internet is a little bit scratchy in the first five to 10 minutes. It’s still fine but the Skype drops in and out slightly so there’s not much we can do, but it clears up and is fine for the rest of the show. So stick with it. Well worth it.

[00:02:30] And of course if you’re enjoying our podcasts, please subscribe to us on iTunes. Leave a review and share this with family and friends or anyone you think would benefit from listening to this episode. Because once people start to get this information behind their ears … between them I should say, not behind them, and start thinking about health and nutrition differently, these podcasts become super powerful and I’m blessed to be sharing them with you guys. And enjoy as always. Anyway, let’s go over to David O’Brien. Enjoy. Hey this is Guy Lawrence. I’m joined with Stuart Cook is always. Good afternoon Stu. Good to see you.

Stu

Hello Guy. Thank you. Welcome to be here.

Guy

And our awesome guest today is Mr Dave O’Brien. Dave, welcome to the show buddy. David: Thank you very much. Hi guys. It’s great to be on the show, it’s amazing. Great experience, thank you. [00:03:00] Guy: It’s the official one. We did a bit of a rogue podcast last year for our listeners, I think after our fourth ice bath, and we got the iPhone set up and did one from the inside the Wim Hof Retreat. But it’s to get you back on and actually do an official episode and grill you for the next hour mate. Because I know what you’re going to have to say is going to benefit probably everyone listening to this show today. So cool. David: Yeah, I’m really looking forward to.

Guy

[00:03:30] So Dave mate, the first question we ask everyone on the show recently, it’s been a bit of a theme, if you got stopped in the street by a stranger and they asked you what you do for a living, what would you say?

David

[00:04:00] Probably the straightforward answer would be to say that I’m a strength and conditioning coach. But it’s actually not true. Because I’ve sort of drifted so far away from a strength conditioning coach, it’s just unreal. And then at the same time, I might say I’m looking at functional medicine, but then I’m [inaudible 00:03:58] inside those parameters as well, so really ultimately what I would say is I actually help people achieve their optimal health. The best version of what they can possibly achieve of themselves. Ultimately that’s what my job is.

Guy

Yeah, perfect. Seen that first-hand, mate, and you’re doing an amazing job.

David

Thank you.

Guy

[00:04:30] So let’s take it back a bit Dave, because I know … and this is a compliment by the way. You’re probably one of the most passionate people I know within the health industry. Your depth of knowledge is phenomenal. But I’m interested to know where that comes from, because you started life in the fitness industry and obviously it’s morphed into what it is now. So can you take us back, because you’ve been on a bit of a journey yourself. Can you fill us in a little bit?

David

[00:05:00] Yeah definitely. It has been an amazing journey my story, but my story I reckon is actually shared by most people. So what I’m about to say, I reckon there’s a large majority of the population that are just going through the exact same experience, and obviously it’s all to do with adrenal burnout, adrenal fatigue, adrenal dysfunction, whatever you want to label it, but ultimately that’s the experience I went through. [inaudible 00:05:19] all the time, and this is what people are going through day-to-day.

[00:05:30] [00:06:00] My body from an early age showed clear signs of me suffering adrenal burnout, and I had a lot of illnesses like chronic fatigue syndrome. I got a thing called Bell’s palsy. I remember when we did the last podcast I actually talked about the experience that I had through the breathing, doing that through with Wim Hof, that actually I had Bell’s palsy on one side of my face, and that actually like a viral infection basically, it actually causes a slight paralysis on one side of my face, and actually when I did the Wim Hof breathing, I felt this tingling sensation in that left side of my face, which for me was actually nerve endings getting stimulated, and all these things that actually hadn’t been stimulated because I hadn’t been getting oxygen into my body ultimately. So my body was giving me clear signs that, like anyone, I was just avoiding those signs. And I just kept on burning the candle at both ends. [00:06:30] [00:07:00]

[00:07:30] I was incredibly active, obviously as a personal trainer. I’ve been a personal trainer or strength and conditioning coach for almost 18, 19 years now. And so basically I was doing a lot of weight training, at the time I was doing a lot of triathlons, marathons. All these things that people like to do, and on top of that I was training sometimes 50, 55 clients in a week. I was sleeping about five hours, and then on the weekend I would hit it pretty hard. I partied incredibly hard. I was drinking and you name it, but basically the works. And the thing is, from my perspective, this is the majority of the population. Most people are doing this. And then what really started to come to a head, is I started to get a lot of serious complications that were coming through, especially neurologically. I actually started to get a lot of things like anxiety, and I actually went from a very social person to actually having social anxiety. I used to get very anxious in social settings, which really started to make me feel quite scared, because it was the complete reverse to the person I was previously.

They’re fantastic, and in 2014, he created the Exceptional Life Blueprint, a company dedicated to helping people rise from mediocre, mediocre, I should say, to magnificent in each area of his life, and not just one. And Marcus spreads his message through his online programs, podcasts, live events, and retreats, and one-on-one mentoring and more.

[00:01:30] Look, sit back, enjoy this episode. Like I said, Marcus is a top guy, and you’re going to get lots out of this today, and as always, guys, if you are enjoying the shows, please subscribe to the podcast, hit the five star, and leave us a review on iTunes. Just help us spread the word. Help us get these episodes out there so we can all empower our lives for the better. Anyway, let’s go over to Marcus Pearce. Enjoy.

Hey, this is Guy Lawrence. I’m joined by Stuart Cook. Good morning, Stu.

Stu

Good morning, Guy.

Guy

And I just got to say, your camera just froze with the best expression ever then. That was just perfect.

Stu

That wasn’t the camera that was frozen. That was me. I was just waiting for something. I was waiting for a pearl of wisdom to come out your mouth.

Guy

And there’ll be plenty today, so hold on, mate. Hold on.

Stu

[inaudible 00:02:03].

Guy

And our special guest today is Mr. Marcus Pearce. Marcus, welcome to the show.

Marcus

Guy, Stu, thanks for having me on. Well done on what you guys have been up to. Incredible what 180′s been able to do, both in the health and wellness space and in the podcast space, so well done, and yeah, a pleasure to be with you guys.

Guy

Great.

Stu

Thank you so much.

Guy

[00:02:30] Thank you. You’re too kind. You’re too kind, mate. Now, Marcus, even though I know you well personally, we’ll be exposing you to many new listeners today. So I love to ask everyone on the show, just to get the ball rolling, if a stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Marcus

[00:03:00] I have a different answer every day. I don’t know about you guys, but there’s always a different answer. Someone, it would be journalist by profession that used to be sports media that transitioned to health and wellness personal growth media. If someone had seen the online marketing, it would be I have an online program, and I run live events about helping people.

[00:03:30] Really, the purpose of my life is to help people rise from mediocre to magnificent in all areas of life, and not just one. But that is often too deep and meaningful for someone in the street, so to give that to someone in the street just knocks them out. So it’s actually just, yeah, journalist by profession that is a sports nut that wanted to do more than just work in sports, so I transitioned from sports media into health and wellness personal growth media, and then they’ll normally say, “What does that mean, and how do you do it?” and then I’ll tell them about The Wellness Couch and Exceptional Life Blueprint and the rest.

Guy

[00:00:30] Hey everybody, this is Guy Lawrence of 180 Nutrition, of course, and welcome to another fantastic episode of the Health Sessions, where every week we connect with the leading global health and wellness experts to share the best and the latest science and thinking, empowering us all to turn our health and lives around. This week we are doing it with the awesome Dan Pardi. Now, Dan is an entrepreneur and a researcher, whose life work is centered on how to facilitate health behaviors in others.

[00:01:00] He does research with psychiatric and behavioral science department at Stanford, and the Department of Neurology and Endocrinology at Leiden University in Netherlands. God, I’m trying to get my words out today, not doing a great job. Dan Pardi, not only is he a wealth of experience and a top guy, we tackle everything on sleep today. We’ve really been itching to delve into this topic more over the years, since we’re doing the podcast, and I tell you what, boy, Dan didn’t disappoint.

[00:01:30] How do you get to sleep? Why is sleep so important? Why do we wake up in the middle of the night? What strategies can we do around it? What effects is that having on the body? This goes pretty deep, it’s a podcast I’m going to listen to again. Dan’s knowledge on the human body itself is quite incredible, and this podcast is fantastic. So, I highly recommend it. I’d give it a good listen, because no doubt it’s going to make you want to get your eight hours sleep and get into a bit of a rhythm every week, that’s for sure.

[00:02:00] Beyond that, I just want to give a shout out to our most recent podcast review on iTunes. It’s greatly appreciated. It’s great stuff, five stars from [inaudible 00:01:47]. “I’ve been a customer of 180 Nutrition for a few years now and I really like they’re non-preachy about the holistic approach to health and wellbeing. I just listened to the self love podcast,” that’s the one with Eloise King we did, and it was a very powerful one. “Thank you for being my companion in my journey of self discovery, love, and starting over.” You’re very welcome [inaudible 00:02:07], and it’s great to know, to hear these things.

[00:02:30] If you are listening to our podcast on a regular basis and yet to leave a review, head over to iTunes. It would be greatly appreciated because it obviously helps other people want to listen to our podcast too, which is what it’s all about in sharing this content with everyone. Of course, give us some feedback on today’s episode, guys. The best place to catch me is probably on our Instagram Stories channel. Flick me a video or message about when you listen to this episode, and that’s just on 180 Nutrition. I look forward to hearing from you. I hope yo enjoy this podcast as much as we did. Anyway, let’s go over to Dan.

Hey, this is Guy Lawrence. I’m joined with Stu [inaudible 00:02:52]. Good morning, Stu. Good to see you.

Stu

Good morning, Guy.

Guy

Our awesome guest today is Mr. Dan Pardi. Dan, welcome to the show.

Dan

Thank you, Guy, so much for having me on. It’s great to be here

Guy

I’ve got to warn you, Dan, this is probably Stu’s most passionate topic ever, sleep. He’s been very excited. It’s something we haven’t really fully covered on the show before. We’ve had discussions on the podcast, but to bring someone in to talk more in depth about it is going to be awesome, so brace yourself, mate.

Dan

[00:03:30] Yeah, all right, good. Well, I am fascinated and really passionate about the subject myself so I’m happy to talk with you guys about it. Anybody who already is passionate about it, they’re my people.

Stu

Fantastic, fantastic.

Guy

Awesome. Dan, the first question I ask everyone on the show is just to give listeners a little bit of information. If a stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say to him?

Dan

[00:04:30] My mission is to promote personal health mastery in people. That’s what I do. I’ve been interested in health my whole life. My career, my education has been centered around this topic. I was interested in the topic from when I was a young kid, and I think I probably got into it because I was interested in athletics. I got injured when I was younger. Then the idea of healing and fixing my body was planted in me, and from a young age. Even though I moved past that injury, it still stayed in my mind about how to optimize, and the fascination grew with how to train better, to how does body fat, how is it regulated in the brain. It just kept going. I discovered sleep serendipitously about ten years ago. I completed a Masters in Exercise Physiology and after that I worked with Dean Ornish, we were doing lifestyle interventions for patients with prostate cancer.

[00:05:00] What I really liked about that research was that we were looking at not just a single nutrient or a single intervention, but rather a multi-factorial approach to promote wellness in patients that have prostate cancer to see if all these things, which we know matter, could affect the internal hormonal milieu and then have the affect the progression of the disease that they already had. Slowing down the progression of a diagnosis that existed or even reversing it. That made a really big impression on me and who I am and what I want to do.

[00:05:30] From there, I worked in the pharmaceutical industry for almost a decade in medical affairs, and I set up and ran the medical affairs department and we had a drug for sleep, so my job on a daily basis was to interact with some of the top sleep researchers in the world, literally, discussing research ideas, talking about our program and how we can work together, and I learned so much during that time. My fascination with sleep started then and has only continued.

[00:06:00] I left there, started my PhD. I do research now. I work with the Departments of Neurology and Endocrinology at Leiden and also Behavioral Sciences a Stanford, and then I started a public health product called Dan’s Plan which will soon be turning into Human OS. That is the idea of synthesizing all of the information out there to help people master their own health. One foot in research, one foot in health promotion.

[00:00:30] Hey everybody, this is Guy Lawrence of course, for 180 Nutrition and welcome to another fantastic episode of the Health Sessions, where we're always connecting with global health and well experts ... getting my words out ... to share the best and the latest science and thinking to empower us all to turn our health and lives around. This week, our fantastic guest is Mr. Scott Carney. Scott is an investigative journalist and anthropologist. He has worked in some of the most dangerous unlikely corners of the world, especially when writing his books, and we're here to talk about his brand new book today, "What Doesn't Kill Us," which is a New York Times bestseller, and I was so keen to get Scott on the show because essentially this book came about because Scott went on a journey to end up trying to debunk Wim Hof.

[00:01:30] If you're not familiar with Wim Hof, we'll get into that as well today, but if you have been listening to my podcast for a while with myself and Stu, you'll realize that I've gone on and done Win Hof retreats, and spent some time with him, and I actually practice the breath work and [inaudible 00:01:08]. So it was great to get Scott on his journey and what he's discovered through his own mission. Ultimately, he's a really good, fun guy. He says it as it is. He wants to know the facts, and he digs deep to find out what's actually going on, and where's the line between myth and actually reality as well. It was a brilliant podcast, and I have no doubt you're going to enjoy this show today.

As always, guys, if you are enjoying our podcast, please subscribe to us, five star us, and leave us a review if you're enjoying it of course and you think it's worthy. I read every review, I will shout them out on the podcast as well from time to time. It makes all the difference to help us reach more people that can listen to the same content just like yourselves. Anyway, let's go over to Scott Carney, enjoy.

[00:02:00] Hi, this is Guy Lawrence, I'm joined with Stewart Cook as always, good morning, Stu.

Stu

Good morning, Guy.

Guy

And our awesome guest today is Scott Carney, Scott, welcome to the show mate.

Scott 

Hey, thanks for having me on.

Guy

Really appreciate it man, really appreciate it. It's a topic close to my heart, I was very excited about this one. Before we get into it Scott, we ask everyone on the show, if a complete stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Scott

God, that's a hard question because I don't talk to strangers, they scare me. I was told never, ever to speak with them. I'm an investigative journalist and anthropologist. If that isn't enough to bore the hell out of a stranger, I do not know what is.

This is Guy Lawrence, of course, of 180 Nutrition and welcome to another stellar episode of the Health Sessions where we are connecting with leading global health and wellness experts to show the best and the latest in science and thinking and empowering people, ourselves, to turn our health and lives around, and this week we're doing it with the awesome Nora Gedgaudes. We welcome back Nora to the show. This episode's a special one to us because Nora was one of the very first guests we had on our podcast all those years ago, and at the time she'd released the book Primal Body, Primal Mind. It was at its peak of popularity, and she still had time for us and being a new podcast as well, she came on, and she was awesome. That book's been a pivotal staple for myself and Stu over the years, and I highly recommend it if you haven't checked it out.

[00:01:30] If you're not familiar with Nora, she's a wild, excuse me, a wildly recognized expert on what is popularly referred to as the paleo diet. She the author of international best-selling book Primal Body, Primal Mind. Nora's also an experienced nutritional consultant, speaker, and educator. She's widely interviewed on national and international radio, popular podcasts ... I'd like to think that this is one of them ... and online summits, television, and film as well. And she's here to talk about her brand new book today called Primal Fat Burner, which I have right here, and I've been pulling it apart, and it's another nugget of a book. Get it. I highly recommend it, and we delve into everything.

[00:02:00] Nora talks about what she learned over the past, you know, whatever many years ago since we last had her on. I'm watching this new book. And it's one of those podcasts that we warn you, you'll probably have to listen to it a couple of times. Nora is a wealth of information, and she certainly gets deep on some of the topics, but I think it's so important that she does as well because we need to have a solid understand why we do the things we do with our nutrition and the impact it has on our longevity and health long term.

[00:02:30] So we cover all them things, and Nora did mention at the end of the podcast as well after we finished, that she's actually coming to Australia towards the end of 2017, so keep an eye out for that as well. So that's it, I guess. I will ask, guys, as always, if you can leave us a review on iTunes, five-star us, and please subscribe. If you haven't done those things, please do them because they really help us getting this podcast out there. We're getting great traction. We're reaching more people. This message is getting out to more and more people. And just share it with a friend that you think might appreciate these episodes as well as we keep delivering them to you. Anyway, let's go over to Nora Gedgaudes. Enjoy. Hi. This is Guy Lawrence. I'm joined by Stuart Cook. Good morning, Stu.

Stu

Hi, Guy.

Guy

And our lovely guest today is Nora Gedgaudes. Nora, welcome back to the show.

Nora

Oh, thanks, Guy and Stu. Thank you so much. It's great to be back here with you guys again. It's been a while.

Stu

Yes, it has.

Guy

Yeah, it's been a while. I was looking this morning, and it's been four years. Can you believe it? That's how quickly-

Stu

My word.

Nora

You know, I think I made my first sort of splash in Australia back in either 2009 or 2010, so it's been a while since the release of my last book, and everything that's transpired. So yeah, it's time.

Guy

Yeah. Life is brilliant, and I have to say, that last book of yours, Primal Body, Primal Mind, I mean that was pivotal in changing the way we thought as well all them years ago. Did you expect it to go on and be so successful as it is when you wrote it?

Nora

[00:04:00] Oh, no. God, no. I wrote that book just because I had all this stuff I had to get out of me, and I thought I would just put it all in one place in a way I could feel good about. And I initially self-published because I wanted ... I had ideas about that. It wasn't a bad thing to do, but I had horrible editorial problems, and there were a lot of problems with the self-published version. And then I had a bigger publisher come along and say, "No, we love this. It's amazing. We would love to publish it." But it took on a life of its own. I really had no idea it was going to do what it did. I think I would have planned my life very differently had I known.

[00:05:00] And suddenly, I was seeing clients eight to 10 hours a day, and then on evenings and weekends, I had to spend answering the 100 or more emails that were coming in every day about that book and doing interviews. And then I was asked to do a radio show, so I did that. All these things started happening. Yeah, it made my life really, really ... Well, actually, my life is still pretty crazy as a result of all this. But it was something ... It wasn't by design. Let's just say I didn't write Primal Body, Primal Mind with marketing in mind at all. Had I done that, had I intended to, I went about it in a really stupid fashion because what I did was I wrote 15 books in one is essentially what I did with that one.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • Describe your mindset leading up to and during life-threatening pursuits (ie. Jaws, Teahupoʻo)
  • What does your training routine look like (on and off season)?
  •  I’ve read that breathwork has become a large component of your training, why?

  • What can we expect from your new movie ‘Take Every Wave’?
  • And much much more..

Shop: http://shop.180nutrition.com.au/

Guy

This week, we are doing it with the awesome big wave surfer, Laird Hamilton. I have to say, me and Stu were like kids in a candy shop again today. It was just awesome to get Laird on. If you aren't familiar with Laird, he's an American athlete, surfer, author, inventor, stuntman, model, producer, TV host, fitness and nutrition expert, husband, father and an adrenaline junkie and- did I say?- big wave surfer. We delve into all sorts, today. His training routines. Of course, Wim Hof, and the breath work, I know he's incorporated that into his routine. Mindset; you know, some of these waves he gets on are bigger than- They're huge, I can't even describe; I get scared on a three foot wave. Nutrition, and so forth.

What was clear about Laird: He's a laid back, top guy, and was just happy to share his message and, hopefully, inspire us to make right choices, because he's a great example of a human being. It was awesome to get Laird on and I have no doubt you're gonna enjoy this today.

[00:01:30] Of course, if you enjoy this episode, please share it with other friends and family and, of course, leave us a review on iTunes if you're not subscribed to us, or five-starred us by now, just to help continue to get these episodes out. We're working really, really hard to bring you the best and the latest guests that we think that is gonna compliment the show, and be able to get this information out there to all you guys, as well. I'm loving it, hopefully, you're loving it, and it would be great if you could do that for us.

Anyway, let's go over to Laird Hamilton. Enjoy.

Hi, this is Guy Lawrence. I'm joined with Stuart Cook, as always. Hi, Stu.

Stu

Hello, mate. How are you?

Guy

Very well, thank you. Our awesome guest today is Laird Hamilton. Laird, welcome to the show.

Laird

Thank you very much. Appreciate it.

Guy

Now, mate, I just have to fill you in a little bit with our backgrounds. Stu knows a phenomenal lot about you. He reads your books and everything, and I literally just discovered last year when I did some work with Wim Hof, so I think we're gonna come at it from two very different angles today, doing the interview.

Laird

Perfect. That's the best way.

Guy

[00:02:30] First question we ask everyone on the show, mate, because I'm pretty sure we're gonna be exposing you to a lot of new listeners today that might not be familiar with you, and that is, if some stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Laird

Well, in the past, I'd probably say I was a sanitation worker or something. A farmer. Anything but a surfer. Normally, people ask me, what do I do? I say, I surf.

Guy

Okay, perfect, perfect. Just to get a little bit of a background, Laird, because I'm not familiar. All I know is that you moved, I think, it was either three or four months old from ... is it San Fran to Hawaii, and then grew up in Hawaii?

Laird

Yeah.

Guy

What I'm intrigued in, what got you into big wave surfing in the first place? Because I've been learning to surf and anything more than three foot terrifies me, at the moment.

Laird

[00:04:30]
Well, lucky for you, then you get terrified a lot. No, I mean, that's a pretty commonly asked question. I think I'm predisposed to like that environment, to like the thrill and the danger. I think I have a disposition for that. Some of the attributing factors to me becoming a big wave rider, I think it was that the ocean was a place that I found a lot of equality. It was a place where I could ... just leave all the worries of the land behind, and maybe be judged, or kind of let your skill do your talking kind of thing, but, yeah. Big is, just for me, in the evolution of being a surfer, is just the apex. It's like if you're a mountain climber, you either go to the most difficult climbs as you evolve, or you go to the biggest mountain, however it is. I think it's a combination of a bunch of different things, but I have a disposition, and I'm kinda predisposed to like danger.

This week welcome to the show Robert Lustig. He is a professor of pediatrics in the UCSF Division of Endocrinology, a member of the Institute for Health Policy Studies and director of the UCSF Weight Assessment for Teen and Child Health (WATCH) Program. Dr. Lustig is a neuroendocrinologist, with basic and clinical training relative to hypothalamic development, anatomy and function. He previously worked at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, TN, where his work with obese children and adults led him to explore the specific role of fructose as a mediator of both chronic disease and continued caloric consumption. His 90-minute UCTV lecture, titled Sugar: The Bitter Truth, has garnered more 5 million views on YouTube.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • Your YouTube video ‘Sugar: The Bitter Truth’ has almost 7 Million views. Did you expect that kind of response when you released it?
  • What’s the issue with fructose in particular?
  • You were recently quoted in the Australian media as saying; ‘if you feed your kids breakfast cereal, you might as well be giving your kids alcohol’. Please explain...
  • What about fruit, should we be wary of the fructose content?

This week, we are doing it with the amazing Robert Lustig. Now, if you're not familiar with Robert, in a nutshell he is a professor of pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology, if I can say that correctly, where essentially he specializes in childhood obesity. You might have heard the name before, and essentially, Robert released a YouTube video back in, I think it was 2009 or 2010. It went viral and has had nearly 7 million views, which is quite incredible. Even if you type his name up, it's called "Sugar: The Bitter Truth." Better than a video of a double rainbow or whatever going viral, or a cat playing in the kitchen. It was actually something of a very serious message and it was great to get Robert on the show today to basically share with us all his discoveries and what he's finding with sugar, fructose and insulin production, as well. Robert does a fantastic job of simplifying it back down for us, as well, and I promise you, if you do have a lot of sugar in your diet, you're going to think twice about it after today's interview.

[00:02:00] Anyway, I have no doubt you're going to enjoy it anyways. It's all good. It's all good news. Great guy and gets the message across perfectly. Very excited to share that with you. As always guys, if you're enjoying our podcast, please subscribe to us, five star us and leave a review on iTunes, only if you're enjoying them of course and only if it's an honest review. That just helps us get this message out there every week and grow us internationally, as well. Anyway, it is all much appreciated. Let's go over to Robert Lustig. Enjoy.

Hi, this is Guy Lawrence. I'm joined by Stuart Cooke, as always. Hi Stu.

Stu

Hello Guy.

Guy

Our awesome guest today is Mr. Robert Lustig. Robert, welcome to the show.

Robert

Thanks for having me, both of you.

Guy

Very excited mate, very excited. Now Robert, we kick off with one question we ask everyone on this show, and that is if a complete stranger stopped you in the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

This week welcome to the show Jason Fung. He is a Toronto based nephrologist. He completed medical school and internal medicine at the University of Toronto before finishing his nephrology fellowship at the University of California, Los Angeles at the Cedars-Sinai hospital. He joined Scarborough General Hospital in 2001 where he continues to practice.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • Fasting can be intimidating and scary. ie: I will starve, waste-away and lose my muscle. Should we be fearful?
  • Is fasting for everyone?
  • The weight loss industry tells us to eat less calories, but snack between meals. Won’t fasting put us into starvation mode?
  • Does fasting give us a license to eat whatever we want when we are not fasting?
  • Can fasting benefit athletes and how would they apply it?

Shop: http://shop.180nutrition.com.au/

This week, our awesome guest is Dr. Jason Fung, and we are getting into the topic of fasting. Now, fasting is a topic that we haven’t really covered on the podcast before. I do personally implement little bits of fasting in my life, so it’s great to get a guy that’s been studying it for the last four years and applying it to hundreds and hundreds of patients in his medical practice in the US. We cover things from fasting as an application to obesity, to diabetes, especially Type II, to then obviously just weight loss and the health maintenance and even in athleticism as well, you know, what are the precautions around it, what should be looking for, is fasting hard, can we eat whatever we do outside of fasting and so forth, and why should we do it. Should we be scared of it? Are we going to lose muscle mass? You know, all sorts of stuff. It’s all in there and it was fantastic.

[00:01:30] We had Jason on and basically grilled him for 55 minutes to unleash as much knowledge as we could. No doubt you’re going to enjoy guys, and if you are enjoying the show, please leave us a review on iTunes if you can. Only if you enjoy them of course, but if you subscribe to it, five star it and leave a review for us. It just really helps other people find this podcast as well and get the information, just like yourself right now if you’re a regular listener. That’s one thing I’d ask for guys, and really appreciate it if you do. I read all the reviews and now we’d be happy to read them out on the podcast as well. Anyway, let’s go over to Jason Fung, enjoy.

Hi, this is Guy Lawrence. I’m joined with Stuart Cook. Hi Stu, good morning.

Stu

Hello guys.

Guy

Our awesome guest today is Mr. Jason Fung. Jason, welcome to the show.

Jason

Hey, how are you? [inaudible 00:02:04] be here.

Guy

Thank you, mate. Did I pronounce your surname right? I should have asked you before we started

Jason

Yeah.

Guy

Yeah? Beautiful. Look, the first question I ask everyone on the show is if a complete stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Jason

[00:03:00] I’m a kidney specialist by trade, so I’m a physician. I trained very conventionally, through internal medicine, and then I did a couple of years in Los Angeles for my nephrology. About 10 years ago now, 8 years ago now, I became very interested in the question of nutrition, obesity, because that’s really the core problem of what faces us in the medical world. A lot of the problems that we face are not what we used to face, which is infections and so on. They’re all metabolic problems, that is, Type II diabetes and all the problems that go along with obesity such as sleep apnea, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and all those sorts of problems. They really take up probably about 40%–50% of the health care budget, so you know, modern Western nations, it’s a huge problem, and worse than that, it’s a growing problem. You’ve all seen the statistics on obesity and Type II diabetes kind of rises right along with that.

[00:04:00] That’s where I really got interested in, trying to see where we kind of went wrong, because obviously what we’re doing was not working. We told everybody, you know, cut calories, eat less, move more. We’ve been saying the same thing for 30 years, we’ve been singing the same song, and nothing has worked. I don’t know why we would keep using it because we knew it didn’t work. That’s really where it came from, that I really started looking into, first, the problems with obesity and the very much related problems of Type II diabetes and how our treatments are really quite incorrect, and really how to properly treat them.

This week welcome to the show Steph Lowe. She is a sports nutritionist, triathlete and cashew butter addict from Melbourne, Victoria. She teachs how easy real food living and performance can be. 

A little more about Steph:

  • She has been gluten free for nine years now, and literally because it makes her happy.
  • She has an undergraduate degree in Sport and Exercise Science (James Cook University, Townsville).
  • She has a post graduate degree in Human Nutrition (Deakin University, Melbourne) and is one subject away from completing my Masters.
  • She is a long course triathlete currently taking a break from racing to reset the body and mind.

Her biggest piece of advice is to dive straight in – study, blog, create, share and enjoy the journey. Do what you love, love what you do.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What is metabolic efficiency and what is it important for everyone, from the sedentary to elite athlete?
  • Do athletes need carbohydrates?
  • From a fuelling and recovery perspective, what adjustments would you make from say; a high intensity sport like Crossfit to a endurance athlete?
  • Is ketosis compulsory?
  • What are the common mistakes people make?

Shop: http://shop.180nutrition.com.au/

This week we’re doing it with the fantastic Steph Lowe from The Natural Nutritionist. Steph has been gluten free for nine years. She has an undergraduate degree in sports and exercise science and she has a post-graduate degree in human nutrition.

[00:01:00] I loved every moment of this podcast today and it was great to get Steph on and share her experience and wisdom across the years. Because essentially she’s in the firing line. She’s dealing with one-on-one clients all year round when it comes to sports nutrition, and more importantly, the topic that we get into today about combining low carb and real food and more of a fat-adapted diet to athletic performance. We make sure we cover the spectrum today, so from people that essentially could be living a sedentary lifestyle, to the weekend warriors or people that exercise, and then obviously to the high-end. We use crossfit as an example, but the high intensity, even then onto endurance athletes, and what’s the best way to go about looking at the way you will [fuel 00:01:23] yourself for maximum performance.

[00:02:00] Even though if you’re not a high-end athlete this is definitely an applicable podcast for you. I loved every minute of it, like I said, and it was awesome to finally get Steph on the show to share all this stuff with you today. I certainly enjoyed it. I have no doubt you guys are going to enjoy it as well, and we’ll move onto Steph in a second. I just want to throw out there guys, don’t forget, leave us a review on iTunes if you can. Subscribe to us and five star us if you are a regular listener and if you are enjoying the podcast on a regular basis, because they do truly allow other people to find our podcasts and help them too. It’s a great way of, I guess, giving back a little for tuning in on a regular basis. I ask every week, and I’ll continue to ask, but that’s cool as well. Let’s go over to Steph Lowe. Enjoy. Hey, this is Guy Lawrence. I’m joined by Stuart Cooke. Good morning Stu.

Stu

Hello, Guy. How are you?

Guy:

I’m fantastic. Thank you. Our awesome guest today is Steph Lowe. Steph, welcome to the show.

Steph

Hi guys. Great to be here.

Guy

Great to finally have you on Steph. I’ve been following you for a long time, and to finally see you on the podcast is great. Absolutely. The first question I got for you, Steph, which I’ve been asking everyone on the show is if a complete stranger stopped you in a cocktail party, say, and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Steph

[00:03:00] I would say that I’m a sports nutritionist and I run The Natural Nutritionist which is certainly an online hub where we teach people not only how to just eat real food, but how to optimize their metabolism for everything from the day-to-day activities up to being an elite athlete.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What is Self-Love?
  • Why is Self-Love so hard for so many people?
  • What is the danger of not mastering self-love for your life at some point?
  • What is the relationship between self-love and food specifically?
  • Why Self-Love as the focus of a project? Why not simply meditation project… or exercise project... or diet project alone?
  • You’ve interviewed one of my heroes; Wayne Dyer. Can you share the story of how that came about

Shop: http://shop.180nutrition.com.au/

Now Eloise King is, I would say first and foremost an entrepreneur. She's been a great inspiration in my life. She's a founder of the Soul Sessions and much more recently The Self-Love Project. She's interviewed some of the heavyweights like Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer, all these in-person, Anita Moorjani, Dr. Joe Dispenza, Neale Donald Walsch just to name a few. It's quite incredible what she's already achieved in her life.
[00:01:00] We sit down to talk today about self-love and what it means and how we can apply it in our lives and why we should even consider it in the first place. It's fantastic, so myself and Stu, yes, just a couple of lads on a podcast talking about self-love. We have gone there today and personally I loved every minute of it. I think it's actually a real vital component that we can all look at. That's of course all the fellas included.
[00:01:30] When you listen to this podcast it goes way, way, way deeper than that and Eloise has actually been spending the last year scouring the world and correlating all the best information from the leading minds and what science is saying as well and being able to bring it all together and create The Self-Love Project and then how we can start to apply that in our daily lives on a daily basis and actually start to find more meaning in our life.
[00:02:00] I think it's such an important message. I loved every minute of this podcast and I have no doubt you're going to enjoy it too guys. I reckon let's just go over to the show. I'm not going to ask for a review on iTunes this week, but hey, if you do subscribe and give us a five star, leave a review, that would be mightily appreciated of course. All right guys, let's go over to Eloise King. Enjoy. Hey, this is Guy Lawrence. I'm joined with Stuart Cook. Good morning Stu.

Stu

Hello mate, how are you?

Guy

I'm excellent, thank you. Our lovely guest today is Eloise King. Eloise, welcome to the show.

Eloise

Thanks Guy. Hi guys, it's so good to be here.

Guy

Super to have you.

Stu

Good morning.

Guy


[00:02:30] It's been a long time coming. Now, Elo, before we get into it, I ask everyone on the show the same question, which is if you were to be stopped by a complete stranger on the street and they asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Eloise


[00:03:00] It's an interesting questions. I've got sort of a clinical response to that which is I run an online education organization which kind of tells its stripe. Depending on who it is and how deep we go into it, then I can start sort of talking about the self-love piece or the whole, the bigger picture I guess which sadly not everybody wants to hear about it, so when people get into it they tend to really get into it.

This week welcome to the show Gregg Braden. New York Times best-selling author Gregg Braden is internationally renowned as a pioneer in bridging science, spirituality and the real world! Following a successful career as a Computer Geologist during the 1970’s energy crisis, he worked as a Senior Liaison with the U.S. Air Force Space Command during the Cold War years of the 1980s.

In 1991 he became The First Technical Operations Manager for Cisco Systems. Since 1986 Gregg has explored high mountain villages, remote monasteries, and forgotten texts to merge their timeless secrets with the best science of today. His discoveries have led to 11 award-winning books published in 38 languages. Gregg has received numerous honors for his work including a 2016 nomination for the prestigious Templeton Award. He’s shared his presentations and trainings with The United Nations, Fortune 500 companies, the U. S. military and is now featured in media specials airing on major networks throughout North and South America, Mexico and Europe.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • If you met a stranger on an aeroplane, how
    would you best describe your work?
  • What does the word ‘science’ mean to you, and does science always get it right?
  • Should we listen to our heart more than our head, and if so, how do we tap into the hearts wisdom?
  • What is “resilience from the heart?”
  • What 3 things could I do right now to live my day in a more heart centered place than fear?

Shop: http://shop.180nutrition.com.au/

[00:00:30] I tell you what, I feel like a kid in a candy shop at the moment with the guest we're having on because we had Gregg Braden on, who's our awesome guest today. Gregg has been a big influence in my life with his work along with, obviously, Bruce Lipton and Dr. Joe Dispenza and a few others that we talked about on the podcast. It's finally amazing to sit down with Gregg for an hour and, yeah, shoot the breeze with all his work. He's absolutely beautiful human being. He is doing phenomenal work, and absolutely necessary work as far as I'm concerned.

[00:01:00] If you have no idea what Gregg's about then you're going to be in for a treat. Just sit back and enjoy this show. We're getting on to the bigger picture of stuff with Gregg today, which I think it's just as important as the things that go on in our own lives. Also, we talked about things from the heart, the discoveries and what we're finding around the heart as well, and how we can take all this knowledge and then start applying in our lives.
[00:01:30] Gregg, we talked on the show anyway, he is coming to Australia very shortly and New Zealand through February. Come back to our website 180nutrition.com.au. Simply type in Gregg into the search field and all tour dates will be there for you anyway.

[00:02:00] Yeah. Anything else to add to this before we go over to Gregg? Not really. If you're enjoying our shows always please leave us a review on iTunes if you can, give us also rankings, and honest review, of course. It helps spread the word out there because more and more find this, access information and then hopefully go out and apply in their lives, which is what we're all about.

Anyway, let's go over to Gregg Braden. Enjoy. This is awesome.

Gregg

You all may know my work better than I do because it's been so long since I wrote some of those books.

Guy

Yeah, right.

Gregg

I'm going to follow your lead. I'll follow your lead, we'll do dance.

Guy

All right. Brilliant. Beautiful.

Stu

Fantastic.

Guy

All right. Let's start. Hi, this is Guy Lawrence. I'm joined with Stuart Cooke, as always. Good morning, Stu.

Stu

Good morning, Guy.

Guy

Our wonderful guest today is Mr. Gregg Braden. Gregg, welcome to the podcast.

Gregg

Good day, mates, from High Desert of Northern New Mexico where it's, actually it's a cold overcast snowy day in this High Desert. I'm really happy to be with you and my Australian family today. It's an honor to be with you today. Thank you.

Stu

Fantastic.

Guy

[00:03:00] Thanks so much for coming on, mate. There's one little question I ask everyone when they first come on the show, and that is, you're going to be on an airplane to Australia within a month anyway, so when you get on an airplane and let's say you sat next to a complete stranger and they asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Gregg

Well, that's not a hypothetical question.

Stu

No, it's not.

Gregg

[00:03:30] The way it usually goes is you sit down and they say, "Is this your first time?" Then say, "Business or pleasure?" I usually say yes. Then they say, "Well, what do you do for a living?" I say, "Well, how much time do you have?" If we're going from LAX to Australia, we've got about 13 hours, so they get the whole story.

Stu

Yeah.

Guy

It is incredible. Because even when I ... I said this, Gregg is coming on the show. Then they're, "What does he do?" I go, "You know what, that's actually really hard one to pick."

Gregg

Let me answer this in a different way.

Guy

Sure.

Gregg

[00:04:00] I was on a recent radio program and the interviewer was obviously frustrated with me. Excuse me. He asked me a question right off the bat. No hello, good morning, or anything like that.

Stu

Yeah.

Gregg

[00:04:30] He said, "Gregg Braden, why can't you stick with one topic?" I said, "What do you mean?" He said, "Most people, they're going to talk about the Law of Attraction, they're going to talk about self-help, they're going to talk about neurons, about biology." He said, "Man, you are all over the map. You're talking about ancient civilizations, you're talking about economic cycles, you're talking about climate, you're talking about DNA, you're talking about evolution. Why can't you just stay with one topic like everyone else?"

[00:05:00] It caught me completely off guard. I said, "I understand what you're saying," but I said, "what you've just described are the many different facets of a common theme that runs through all of our lives. My sense is that the better we know ourselves the better equipped we are to deal with whatever life brings to our doorstep. Each one of the things that you've described is one facet of the ways that we know ourselves in the world, so in a very real sense I have stuck with precisely one topic. It's us and it's a big, big topic." Immediately he said, "Okay. We're going on a break," and he cut to break and I never heard anything more from that question again. It wasn't the answer that he's expecting

[00:05:30] I'm a scientist. I'm a degreed geologist and my background is in ocean sciences. It's a math, physics, life science, biology, marine biology specifically, and computer science. In a very real sense, all of those things work together to do precisely what I said to that gentleman to help us understand ourselves in ways that are based in rock solid science.

[00:06:00] We need to be honest, truthful, and factual with ourselves about who we are and what our relationship to our world and to one another and what our bodies really is. Because so many of our life choices, the way we solve our problems, the way we heal our bodies, our medical decisions, our decisions of partnerships, who we choose to have a partner with and how long they last, the way we're solving and addressing climate, the way that we're dealing with social issues, as different as they are from one another, they all come down to the question of who am I as an individual, who are we collectively?
[00:06:30]

[00:07:00] We have been steeped in a scientific story that's not true for 150 years - 150 years. We have been steeped in a story of separation, competition, conflict. Consciously and subconsciously, it comes into play with everything that we do, every problem that we solve, every relationship. My sense is to the degree that we can become honest with what the new discoveries that overturn that 150 years of thinking and, if we can share those in a meaningful way in our lives, then it helps us to think and live differently in a way to embrace the changes that we're seeing. We've never seen the world changing like it is right now. That is the trust.

Actually, 2017, this is 31 years, this is my 31 year anniversary of offering this material in one form or another. It's been the same thing for 31 years.

This week welcome to the show Mark Divine. He is an expert in human performance as it is displayed in mental toughness, leadership and physical readiness. His work is based on an integral warrior-leader model that he developed and tested on over a thousand special operations candidates worldwide. The integrated training, which involves physical, mental, emotional, intuitional and spiritual training, has resulted in over a 90% success rate for the Spec Ops candidates. It is now taught to executives and corporate teams, tops sports teams, top athletes, professionals, first responders and warriors from all walks of life.

Mark is the founder and leader of several highly successful enterprises including SEALFIT (Physical and mental training), Unbeatable Mind, LLC (Executive Mastery Development), NavySEALs.com and USCrossFit. He also co-founded the Coronado Brewing Company in Coronado, CA.

Mark served as Adjunct Professor of Leadership at the University of San Diego and has authored four books: “The Way of the SEAL,” published by Reader’s Digest Publishing, “8 Weeks to SEALFIT” and “Kokoro Yoga” by St. Martin’s Press, “Unbeatable Mind” and the “SEALFIT Training Guide,” both self-published.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • I’ve heard you say the career change (accountant to Navy Seal) came from the silence. Please explain.
  • For anyone wanting to create change in their life and be their authentic self, what advice would you give them?
  • How do they ‘qualify’ someone to become a seal?
  • What is Sealfit?
  • You’re passionate about breath work. Why?

Shop: http://shop.180nutrition.com.au/

Our awesome guest this week is Mr. Mark Divine. Mark was exceptional on the show. It was a shame we just couldn’t get more time with him. What he has to say, there’s always so much wisdom and depth of knowledge there.

[00:01:00] Obviously we’ll get into with Mark, what he does and who he is, but the small synopsis version was essentially, he is an ex-Navy SEAL, but more important as well, what I was fascinated with Mark was his transition from being an accountant and actually wanting to be more congruent with who he was and what he wanted to do in life. He made that change and moved and became a Navy SEAL, and from there after the SEALS he [came on 00:01:01]. He’s written a couple of bestselling books called Unbeatable Mind, and The Way of the Seal. He is a sought after speaker for corporations. He also runs an Unbeatable Mind program and events and seminars. I’m certainly going to try and get there next year. We do discuss that at the beginning of the show as well.

[00:01:30] Essentially, Mark Divine has been there, done it, worn the t-shirt, and he practices what he preaches on a daily basis, and it’s no accident why he is so successful in every endeavor, but on top of that why he is so humble with it. It was a pleasure to sit down with Mark for 45 minutes and be able to share this with you today, guys. I’m sure you’re going to enjoy. I will mention that his WiFi for some reason dropped out at one moment, so we were in mid-flow of conversation and it dropped out, so we’ve done an edit. It just picks up the conversation again, so it’s still in the same context, but if you’re wondering what the hell was going on there, that’s why. You know why now.

[00:02:00] As always, guys, share the love if you can. If you’re enjoying our episodes, just simply subscribe to it, five star it, and if you can figure out how to leave a review, please leave us a review. Honest review, of course, if you’re enjoying the podcast, because it just helps us get the word out there and also get picked up internationally as well. Anyway guys, thanks. Thanks for listening, giving us 45 minutes of your [inaudible 00:02:21]. Did I say that right too? Anyway, oh my god, I’m going to have a meltdown. Let’s go over to Mark Divine. Enjoy.

[00:02:30] Hi, this is Guy Lawrence. I’m joined with Stuart Cooke, as always. Good morning, Stuart.

Stu

Good morning, Guy.

Guy

Our fantastic guest today is Mark Divine. Mark, welcome to the podcast.

Mark

Hi, guys. Thanks for having me. Nice to meet you.

Guy

I appreciate it, mate. It’s a pleasure. Going off on a tangent as well, I saw you had the seminar last weekend. Is that correct, The Unbeatable Mind? How was that, by the way?

Mark

Annual Unbeatable Mind summit, which is like our tribal gathering. It was epic. Man, unbelievable.

Guy

Yeah, it looked amazing. I actually only discovered that a few weeks ago, and I thought, “Boy, I would really love to go to that.” I’m going to make sure that gets on my hit list.

Mark

[00:03:30] Definitely worth a trip. We’ve got some amazing thought leaders who come, and we do some great training. We integrate practice with inspiration with planning to make the next year amazing. That’s why we do it in December, which we acknowledge is an awkward time for some people, but we figure it’s important to do your planning before the end of the year and just really go in with a lot of momentum. That helps people to maintain that momentum, too.

Guy

Yeah.

Mark

It’s a pretty neat event.

Guy

Yeah, I have no doubt. Yeah, I was impressed with the lineup. Anyway Mark, look, we ask one question on the show to every new guest that comes on, and that is if you were greeted by a complete stranger on the street and they asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Well, it would be kind of awkward for a complete stranger in the United States to ask that. Usually they’re busy avoiding you [and avoiding 00:04:06] distraction [inaudible 00:04:07], but I would say that my passion is to train people to transform. What I mean by that is everyone’s got the raw material to literally transform themselves to do anything they want in life, and to perform at levels that are unknown to them today, and all the tools are with you right now. I can help you unlock that. That’s part of our training. That’s part of what I do. I love doing that.

This week welcome to the show Tom Campbell.  He has been focused on scientifically exploring the properties, boundaries, and abilities of consciousness for the past forty years. His books, videos and workshops have reached millions of people around the world and have changed lives and opened eyes to a new way of thinking about reality: a new way of understanding physics, and a new way of understanding who, what and why we are.

The MBT trilogy combines his work as a large complex systems analyst and as an explorer of the large complex system we call reality to conclude that LOVE is the fabric of our reality.

Tom’s statement “If it is not your experience, it is not your truth” highlights the message that he wishes to impart, encouraging everyone to engage with their own experiences, to learn and to evolve.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • How would you tell an eleven year old we live in a ‘virtual reality’?
  • What is fear, why is it often our default mode to situations & how do we overcome it?
  • What is our true purpose of being here?
  • You were in the movie That Sugar Film. How did that come about?
  • In your opinion, how much does sugar impact our consciousness?

I will have to say, with this episode, I wasn’t sure where it was going to go. Tom is a physicist. He’s worked for NASA, he’s worked for the Department of Defense, and he’s also studied consciousness for 40 years as a side project as well. The scope of the conversation could have gone anywhere, really. I thought Tom was brilliant. It reminded me very much of the Bruce Lipton interview, which, for me, was one of the personal highlights of podcasting over the four years. If you had asked me four years ago if we was going to get to interview a nuclear physicist on our podcast, I would have said you were crazy. It has happened and it’s happened today. When you get to sit down with someone like Tom, for me, there was just so much experience, so much wisdom there and knowledge, but not only that, a very big, open-hearted guy. Just fantastic and he just wants to share what he’s learned with the world. It’s as simple as that.

[00:02:00] We get into all sorts of topics today. I will say, this episode was one of two halves, if you like. The first half is quite technical, but stay with it because it has a lot of meaning and the second half, we then start to get into talking about fear, why do we work from a fear-based response quite often, and then from that, how do we resolve that problem. Then going into what is actually our purpose as humans being here and what does it all mean, anyway? It gets quite deep. It’s conversations we hadn’t had on the podcast before and I must admit, I loved every minute of it. It’s something I’m going to listen to a few times to really absorb what Tom was sharing about it and I’m confident you’re going to get lots out of it.


[00:02:30] Now, I want to say, Tom Campbell is actually coming to Sydney, Australia in March 2017, so this is pretty rare. He’s coming for a two-day lecture. We do get into the topic of it on the podcast, so if you enjoy the podcast, this is probably the only ever opportunity you’ll get to come and meet him in person, and hang out, and basically spitball with him, and ask him as many questions as you possibly can. I’m definitely going. I’m taking a few friends with me as well, so we’re going to be there all weekend. That’s March the 11th and 12th, 2017 in Sydney.
[00:03:00]

[00:03:30] Now, I’ve been speaking to the event organizers and they’ve kindly given us a substantial discount code for this event as well for all of the 180 podcast listeners. There will be links, so the best way to go about it, if you enjoy the podcast and you want to come to see Tom live as well, all you will have to do is come back to our website, 180nutrition.com.au, go to the search field on the homepage, and type Tom Campbell in. That’s going to take you to this episode, this podcast, and there will be a link to the event and there will be a discount code there, as well, called GL250. It’s March the 11th and 12th, 2017. Nothing would please me more is to come and meet fellow podcast listeners of the show, so make sure you check that out.

Let’s get on to Tom Campbell. Please let me know what you think. Drop us a line somehow. You can reach me through the website, Snapchat, Instagram, and see where this goes. I don’t know whether it’s just me, but I absolutely loved it. Enjoy.

[00:04:30] I’ll just speak for Stu quickly. I do feel for him because I’ve been looking at your work. I’ve been following Bruce Lipton for a while and that, and I’ve kind of just dropped it in on Stu this last week and said mate, we’ve got Tom Campbell coming on the show. He’s worked for NASA, he’s a physicist. We often joke as well because I’m very right brain and Stu’s very left brain, hence make the whole brain for our 180 …

Tom

[00:05:00] Stuart, you just fell into the middle of something that is hard to grasp in the short term, so hopefully … Just ask the questions you have and we’ll try to fill it in. I can tell you that it actually does make sense even if it doesn’t sound like it. If you go back and actually look at the derivations, the logical derivations … Just skim over it like we’re going to do today, it’s going to have a lot of logical holes in it because you just can’t fill that in in an hour.

Stu

Absolutely. Absolutely. I look forward to getting stuck in because we’ve got some great questions that I’m really intrigued as to how you answer them. Looking forward to it.

Tom

Okay.

Guy

Yeah.

Tom

[00:05:30] Ask anything you want. You don’t have to stick to the script. Just whatever it is you want to ask, whenever you want to ask it, just do it, and we’ll just go from there so there’s nothing really off the table. Anything you want to say or … Hard questions are welcome as well as easy questions.

Stu

Okay.

Tom

Have at it. Whatever works for you.

Stu

Absolutely.

Guy

[00:06:00] Brilliant. I love it. Look, I’ve actually started recording. I reckon let’s just keep going because even that little bit of content’s going to be so valuable for people. Tom, welcome to the show and there’s one question we always ask at the beginning of every show, and I’m itching to see what your answer to this today. That is, if, let’s say you were on an airplane and you sat next to a complete stranger and they asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Tom

[00:06:30] I would probably just say that one of two things. Depending on how interested they really seem to be or whether or not they were just making small talk and being polite, I might say either I’m retired, which then, of course, kind of ends that subject, if they’re just being polite. Or, I would say I’m a physicist. I would wait to see how they responded to that. If they go oh, okay, and then turned around and looked the other direction, which a lot of people do when you tell them you’re a physicist. Then they might say well, what are you doing now and I would tell them well, I’ve written some books and I’m very busy keeping up with all the things that that has created.
