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. (To learn more, please visit the events section at: www.drjoedispenza.com.) Dr. Joe is also a faculty member at Quantum University in Honolulu, Hawaii; the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies in Rhinebeck, New York; and Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. 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?
  • How much do thoughts influence our health?

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.

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.

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.
