180 Nutrition -The Health Sessions. (health & nutrition)

This week we welcome Dr. Michael Ruscio to the show. He is a doctor, clinical researcher and best-selling author whose practical ideas on healing chronic illness have made him an influential voice in functional and alternative medicine. His research has been published in peer reviewed medical journals and he speaks at integrative medical conferences across the globe.

Dr. Ruscio’s best-selling book, Healthy Gut, Healthy You, has paved the way for a ‘start with the gut’ philosophy which has enabled doctors and patient to obtain improved outcomes with minimal expense and effort.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What are the most obvious signs of an imbalanced gut?
  • How effective are shop-bought probiotics?
  • What 3 things compromise our gut health the most?

https://180nutrition.com.au/

In this interview, we discuss his best-selling book, Healthy Gut, Healthy You, and talk about the common roadblocks that people face when attempting to improve their own gut health.

With gut health now regarded as pivotal for optimal health, this conversation is a must-listen. Over to Dr Ruscio.

01:19  Hey, guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I am delighted to welcome Dr Michael Ruscio to the show. Dr Ruscio, how are you?

Michael

01:26  Doing well. How are you?

Stu

01:28 Very well, thank you, very well. Thank you so much for your time, and before we jump into the questions today, I would love it if you could just explain to our audience a little bit about your work, who you are, what you do.

Michael

01:42  Sure. Sure. So, essentially, right now I have an alternate medicine practice in Northern California, where I primarily focus on gut health. The interesting thing, though, is that, because the gut connects to so many systems, it kinda congenitally ties me to things like thyroid and autoimmunity, in general, immune health, in addition to just the gut.

02:06  After I was in practice for a while, I started noticing that some of the dictums of progressive, alternative and functional medicine were maybe a bit off, maybe a bit well-intentioned, but probably a bit wasteful and in need of some scientific verification. And so that led to the aspect of getting involved in some of the clinical research that we're doing at my office, trying to answer questions of what really works in this progressive, alternative, integrative model. What, maybe, was good idea, but doesn't really pan out.

02:40  And so, in the clinic, also performing clinical research, and I recently authored a book all about gut health. I also have a website and a podcast and write some articles. So, kind of involved in this, I guess, from multiple aspects. But all about trying to help people improve their health with progressive yet conservative and well-evidenced, vetted information that can, again, get them healthy without subjecting them to unnecessary dietary restrictions, unnecessary supplement popping or testing, and try to really take the best from what's out there and leave the rest.

This week we welcome Dr Joel Fuhrman to the show. Dr Joel Fuhrman  is an American celebrity doctor who advocates what he calls a micronutrient-rich diet.

A former competitive figure skater, he suffered a serious injury which removed him from competition. He says an alternative medicine therapy helped speed his recovery and led him to become a physician. His practice is based on his nutrition-based approach to obesity and chronic disease, also referred to as a nutritarian or restrictive diet, as well as promoting his products and books. He has written several books promoting his dietary approaches and sells a related line of nutrition related products. As of April 2013, his book Eat to Live was on the New York Times bestseller paperback Advice & Misc. list for 90 weeks.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What is the Nutritarian Diet?
  • Is gut health as important as we’re led to believe?
  • What are the top 3 foods to consume with longevity in mind?

00:44 This week, I'm excited to welcome Dr. Joel Fuhrman. Dr. Fuhrman is board certified family physician, a New York Times bestselling author and internationally recognized expert on nutrition and naturally healing. He advocates a micro-nutrient rich diet and explains how eating this way unleashes the body's tremendous ability to heal, achieve optimal weight, and slow the aging process. In this episode, we discuss the health issues linked to a modern-day processed diet and how eating G-BOMBs, more on this later, can help get us back on track. Even if you think you've got your diet covered, I guarantee you'll learn something from this conversation. So, enough from me. Over to Dr. Fuhrman.

01:29 Hey guys. This is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Dr. Joel Fuhrman to the show. Dr. Fuhrman, how are you?

Joel

01:37 Great to be here.

Stu

01:39 Thank you.

Joel

01:40 Fantastic.

Stu

01:40 Thank you. First up, for all of those listeners out there that may not be familiar with you or your work, I'd love it if you could just spend a couple of minutes just telling us a little bit about what you do and perhaps why you do it as well.

Joel

01:54 Well, I've been a board certified [inaudible 00:01:56] family physician specializing in nutrition for about 30 years now. I specifically went to medical school with the intent to do what I do, which is to reverse disease to aggressive nutritional methods. So, people with chronic migraines, fibromyalgia, asthma, advanced heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, auto-immune conditions like scleroderma, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis, I'm making the radical claim that nutritional excellence is more powerful than medication. You could get people back to great health again without poisoning them with toxic drugs. I developed a career around that.

02:39 Aligned with that idea I've been treating sick people and getting them well again through nutrition, not through medications, is this concept of developing the ideal diet style to maximally extend the human lifespan. I've had thousands of people who have lost more than a hundred pounds, but the point I'm making right now is that it's not just about losing weight, it's about slowing the aging process, maintaining our youthful vigor, and our athletic abilities and our mental abilities into our later years and living to 100 years old in great health. I think that these modern advances in nutritional science are making this possible today for those of us that want that.

03:16 I'm president of the Nutritional Research Foundation. In other words, we raise money to do nutritional research studies and I've published numerous research projects and am involved with studies ongoing now, to show that we can protect ... we can prevent cancer and if people have cancer they can live longer. We're doing disease reversal and disease prevention studies as well, utilizing this nutritarian portfolio of these high-nutrient foods we have put together to design this ideal diet to maximize human longevity.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What are the tell-tale signs of gluten sensitivity?
  • If we eliminate grains, do we need to look to other foods to avoid deficiencies?
  • What everyday foods/practices do you believe can compromise the health of our gut?

https://shop.180nutrition.com.au/

This week, I’m excited to welcome Dr. Peter Osborne. Dr. Osborne is one of the world’s leading authorities on gluten sensitivity. Amongst many other exploits, he’s the founder of the Gluten Free Society, the author of the Gluten Free Health Solution, and the Glutenology Health Matrix, and the best selling book, No Grain, No Pain. In this episode, we discuss the biggest contributing factors that compromise our immune system and the best areas to tackle to start the healing process.

So I really hope you enjoy this as much as I did. Okay. Let’s get into the show.

01:34 Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Dr. Peter Osborne to the show. Dr Osborne. How are you?

Peter

01:42 I’m doing fantastic. Thanks for asking. How about yourself?

Stu

01:45 Yeah, really, really good at. It’s 8:00 on a Friday morning, so I should be a little bit dusty, but I’m feeling okay. I’ve had a good breakfast and I’m ready to go. First off for our audience that might not be familiar with your work, I would love it if you could just tell our listeners a little bit about what you do and perhaps why you do it as well.

Peter

02:07 Yeah, so I started out about 18 years ago clinical practice. I left the VA Hospital here in Houston, Texas after a very disgruntled stint in the rheumatology department, and I was very disgruntled with the way that people were being treated. They were being treated with high levels of immune suppressants and steroid medications and surgical joint procedure replacements. And to me it was not a solution, it wasn’t an answer, nobody got better. It just seemed like a system. And I’m a veteran myself. So having these veterans come through the hospital and not being treated properly, it really didn’t sit well with me. So when I started my own private practice, one of the things that I made it a point of was to implement diet, lifestyle and nutrition into people with chronic autoimmune problems, because that’s where I was.

02:57 At VA Hospital, rheumatology, it’s rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Scleroderma, dermatomyositis. Diseases like psoriatic arthritis and spondyloarthritis. So joint pains, muscle pains, chronic autoimmune in nature. And there just wasn’t a real viable medical option outside of immune suppression, which to me was not a solution.

This week we welcome Ariel Garten to the show. Ariel Garten is the CEO and co-founder of InteraXon, which creates thought controlled computing products and applications. Ariel has also researched at the Krembil Neuroscience Institute studying hippocampal neurogenesis, displayed work at the Art Gallery of Ontario, been head designer at a fashion label, and opened Toronto Fashion Week. Referred to as the “Brain Guru”, Ariel and her team’s work has been featured in hundreds of articles in over 20 countries.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • Please explain the process of meditating with Muse?
  • What diet/supplements are useful in enhancing our brains capability?
  • How important do you think a positive mindset is for overall health?

This week I'm excited to welcome Ariel Garten. Ariel is an artist, scientist, entrepreneur and CEO of InteraXon, a company specialized in thought controlled computing. In this episode we discuss Muse, the brain sensing headband. Muse is a wearable device that sits on your head and tracks your brain activity in real time, which brings the practice of meditation into a whole new light. We chat about how meditation can impact our overall health, and discuss the tools, tips, supplements and strategies that can help us get the most from our meditation sessions. 01:18 I like so many of us personally struggle with meditation, but it looks like Muse could be a real game changer in this space. Enough from me. Over to Ariel. Hey, guys. This is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I am delighted to welcome Ariel Garten to the show. Good morning, Ariel, how are you? Although I say good morning, so it's probably not good morning for you, is it?

Ariel

01:44 I'm in Canada. It is nighttime here, so good evening, good night to everybody in this side of the hemisphere, and good morning to you 

Stu

01:52 Thank you very much. First up, for everybody that may not be familiar with you and your work, I'd love it if you could just tell our listeners a little bit about who you are, what you do and perhaps why you do it as well.

Ariel

02:03 Sure. My name is Ariel and I'm the founder of a company called Muse. We make a device that is a brain sensing headband that helps you meditate, gives you real-time feedback on your meditation so that you can know when you're in the zone and when your mind is wandering. Yes.

Stu

02:21 I was just literally going to jump in there with the meditation aspect as well.

Ariel

02:29 Jump. 02:30 Jump straight in. I was just telling you before that I really struggle with meditation, and after running a podcast for almost five years the take home for me from a lot of the world experts are that meditation is so critically, or it is so critical for overall health in terms of switching off all of the noise.

Stu

02:52 I liken my own personal journey with meditation as to perhaps standing outside a shop and sells televisions, and in the window of the shop there are 100 different screens. Each screen is showing something quite different. That's how my mind is. I'm thinking about this while looking at that, and there's something else happening up here. I've through Headspace, a billion different meditation apps, tried transcendental, tried many different practices and I really struggle with it. 03:21 Very, very interested in Muse and you sharing what Muse is in terms of a tech perspective with our audience, because I'm thinking that it might open up a whole different way of approaching meditation.

Ariel

03:34 What you described is essentially why we built Muse. Everybody knows meditation is fantastic for you, but frankly it's very hard to do. You can sit there even if you're guided by an app and your mind is still wandering all over the place. For some people that can be really scary. You're sitting there. Your mind is supposed to be blank, you imagine, even though that's not what meditation is, and it's bouncing all over the place. You say, "Oh, jeez. I'm not good at this. This is not for me." You end up feeling worse about yourself and not meditating. 04:02 We wanted to build a tool that literally would hold your hand while you meditate and let you hear in real time what was going on inside your mind and guide you and show you what it is that you're supposed to be doing, and reinforce you when you do it right. Stu: 04:16 Sounds like a very useful piece of kit. How does the process work? 04:23 You slip on this little device. This is your Muse. It slips on just like a pair of glasses like this, and it tracks your meditation in real time. There are sensors, two sensors on the forehead and two behind the ears. These are actually clinical-grade EEG sensors. They're actually tracking your brain's brainwave activity in real time. It then sends that data to your smart phone or tablet, which interprets the data and lets you hear the sound of your own brain. 04:52 The metaphor we use is your mind is like the weather. When you're thinking, distracted, it's bouncing all over the place, you hear it is stormy. As you bring yourself to quiet, focused attention it actually quiets the storm. Most people think that meditation is just the idea of letting your mind go blank. It's not. Meditation is actually mental training, and the most basic form of meditation is focused attention meditation. In that you are focusing your attention on your breath or on a neutral object. 05:20 How you do it is you focus your attention on your breath. Your mind wanders. You notice it wanders and then you bring it back to your breath. In doing so you're able to train and maintain your attention. Now, what happens for most of us is our mind wanders, it continues to wander, and then we catch, and, "Oh, right. We're supposed to bring it back." 05:39 This act of noticing it's wandered and bringing it back is like doing your bench press rep at the gym. That's the rep of meditation, noticing it, bringing it back. In a regular meditation you might be wandering one, three, five minutes before you notice and bring it back. With Muse, it cues you instantly. You instantly bring it back, so you can literally get in many times more reps at the gym. You really are honed in that practice of noticing and returning.

https://shop.180nutrition.com.au/

Stu

00:44 This week I'm excited to welcome Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo. Dr. Ritamarie has a chiropractor, nutritionist, and nutritional endocrinology specialists. She educates those who want to understand and attack the root cause of their health issues to resolve, rather than take pills or trendy diets to mask the problem. In this episode, we discuss the issues of stress from feeling tired and wired to the tools, tips, and strategies to eliminate brain fog and boost energy. Dr. Ritamarie also shares a 2-minute breathing tip that can really change your day. Anyway enough from me, let's get into the show.

01:25 Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo to the show today. Good morning Dr. Ritamarie, how are you?

Ritamarie

01:25 Good afternoon.

Stu

01:35 Good afternoon. I've said that every single time in different parts of the world. Loving the backdrop as well. I have to say for everybody that's listening or watching us on video version, yeah, it's definitely where we want to be today. First up, for everybody out there that may not be familiar with your work, I would love it if you could just tell us a little bit about yourself, what you do and perhaps why you do it.

Ritamarie

02:04 Yeah, absolutely. I am passionate about helping people to regain their energy, their vitality, and to be the best of themselves so that they can live the life they were intended. I so often see people struggling and suffering and saddling basically for not really living the life that they want to because they're exhausted, their brain fogged, they'd just feel out of balance and out of sorts. I also am so passionate about changing the way the system works because I think a lot of it is because we're brainwashed from the time we're little that you have an ache or pain, you go to the doctor, you get a pill, and it takes care of it. As you age, you get frail and slow down and all that kind of stuff, and we expect that so we get it.

02:51 I think that our system needs to change. I also train health practitioners in the art of using nutrition to affect endocrinology and, use holistic and functional medicine techniques, and to do that in a big part is empowering people. It's what I call self-empowered healthcare. Why am I so passionate about that is I lost my own health when I was in my 20s when time of your life when you think you're at your peak. I was able to regain it, not through Western medicine, but through the kind of work that I now do, which is in nutrition and functional medicine.

03:24 I also lost three very close to actually more than three, but three extremely close family members; my mother, my father, and my sister to what I think were preventable illnesses, but their doctors didn't know what to tell them to do to change their diet and lifestyle.

This week we welcome Dawson Church to the show. Dawson Church, PhD, is an award-winning author whose best-selling book The Genie in Your Genes (www.YourGeniusGene.com) has been hailed by reviewers as a breakthrough in our understanding of the link between emotions and genetics. His follow-up title Mind to Matter, (www.MindToMatter.club) reviews the science of peak mental states.

His groundbreaking research has been published in prestigious scientific journals.

He shares how to apply the breakthroughs of energy psychology to health and athletic performance through EFT Universe (www.EFTUniverse.com), one of the largest alternative medicine sites on the web.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What are the principals behind EFT?
  • What is EFT best used for?
  • Do I need a trained therapist?

This week, I'm excited to welcome Dawson Church.

Dawson is a health writer and researcher who has edited and authored a number of books in the fields of health, psychology and spirituality. In this particular episode, we focus largely on EFT, which is emotional freedom techniques and specifically the science and studies that support it. I learn a huge amount during our chat including strategies, which may help me overcome my fear of spiders. Fascinating stuff. Without further ado, let's get into the show. Hey, guys. This is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I'm delighted to welcome Dawson Church to the show. Good morning or good evening, afternoon Dawson for you. Sorry. You're in a different continent, aren't you?

Dawson

01:31 All of the above, Stuart.

Stu

01:35 Brilliant.

Dawson

01:35 Different part of the world.

Stu

01:36 Exactly. Well, we are connected which is the most important thing. Thank you again for your time and before we get into the questions today, I would love if you could just tell our listeners that may not be familiar about who you are, a little bit about your work and what you do and why you do it?

Dawson

01:54 Sure. Well, I've been intrigued by energy healing for many, many years. When I was a teenager after high school, I went and lived in a spiritual community where I learned energy healing and learned meditation, so these things are part of my awareness for a long, long time, but what I found really exciting starting in the 1980s where meditation was first being studied was the accumulation or empirical evidence that things like practices, like compassion, like mindfulness, like meditation, like acupuncture, acupressure, all of these seemingly esoteric energetic practices have direct effects and initially the research was on the psyche, so is on anxiety and depression, pain, but now, we have the tools like MRIs, and EEGs to actually drill down and see if they're affecting us physiologically, dramatically.

For the last many, 20, 25 years, I've been collecting evidence, I've been writing books, I've been running clinical trials, I've been doing social projects all to try, and raise the profile of energy medicine in primary care. I wanted in veterans administration hospitals, I wanted in primary care clinics, I wanted in psychotherapy offices. As we get to realize and understand just how profoundly this affects our wellness, I believe it has a place at the frontline of medical care so that's really what my passion is now and that's why I've written ... My earlier book is called, "The Genie in Your Genes," about epigenetics and now this new book, "Mind to Matter," about how our brains and our minds literally are having drastic effects to our bodies and the world around us.

She also has proven strategies to incorporate good nutrition into a fast paced family, as the mother of three teenage children and her own busy practice. She can empathise with all types! A Healthy View recently has expanded Sydney operations to open in New York, with its new online family wellness program Low Sugar Lifestyle.

  • How long does it typically take to start seeing (and feeling) positive results?

This week, I'm excited to welcome Michele Chevalley Hedge. Michele is a highly commended nutritionist, health writer and presenter who is often introduced as the modern day nutritionist, the one who likes a bit of wine and coffee. Love it.

 This week we welcome Dr. William Davis to the show. He is a Milwaukee-based American cardiologist and author of health books known for his stance against "modern wheat", which he labels a "perfect, chronic poison." This view had previously been rejected by the medical and agricultural industry based on conjecture, minimal controlled studies, and challenges inherent to clinical research,however anecdotal evidence such as Dr. Davis's and among many patients in the western populace suggest more research is necessary to understand and measure physiological and psychological influences that gluten and today's contemporary cultivars of wheat may have on human health apart from non-therapeutic dietary trends. In a review of May 2015 published in Gastroenterology, Fasano et al. conclude that, although there is an evident "fad component" to the recent rise in popularity of the gluten-free diet, there is also growing and unquestionable evidence of the existence of non-celiac gluten sensitivity.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  •  Is wheat really as harmful as we’re led to believe?
  • What’s the connection of wheat consumption and heart disease?
  • Can 2 slices of wholewheat bread raise blood sugar levels higher than a snickers bar?

https://shop.180nutrition.com.au/

Stu

This week, I’m excited to welcome Dr. William Davis. Dr. Davis is a cardiologist and author of the New York Times best-selling book, Wheat Belly. He’s known for his stance against modern wheat, and believes that it’s the single largest contributor to the nationwide obesity epidemic. Fascinating stuff. In this episode, we discuss how he witnessed over 2000 patients regain their health, after giving up wheat. Also, get this, while eating a Snickers bar is less unhealthy than eating two slices of bread. You guys have been asking for this interview for a while now, and I’m truly honored to chat to Dr. Davis today. Let’s get into the show. 01:25 Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I am delighted to welcome Dr. William Davis to the show. Good morning Dr. Davis, although, it probably isn’t morning for you is it? It’s probably the afternoon.

William

01:36 It’s dinner time around here Stu.

01:37 Oh okay. No problems. Look, firstly thank you so much for sharing your time. For all those that may not be familiar with your work, and there probably won’t be that many people that aren’t, I would love for you to tell our listeners a little bit about who you are and what you do.

William

01:53 I practiced cardiology, interventional cardiology for about 25 years. Became very disenchanted, disappointment what that meant, and practiced preventive cardiology, but truly tried to stop and reverse coronary disease. Did it in many people, and that led to the writing of my Wheat Belly series of books, and then more recently the undoctored book.

Stu

00:03 Hey, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and welcome to another episode of The Health Sessions. It's here that we connect with the world's best experts in health, wellness and human performance in an attempt to cut through the confusion around what it actually takes to achieve long lasting health. Now, I'm sure that's something that we all strive to have. I certainly do.

We're into whole food nutrition and have a range of superfoods and natural supplements to help support your day. If you are curious, want to find out more, just jump over to our website. That is 180nutrition.com.au and take a look. Okay, back to the show.
Stu: 00:44 This week, I'm excited to work with Amy Clover. Maybe has an inspiring story starting with OCD, depression and suicidal thoughts as a teenager to then go onto empower hundreds of thousands of people with her online community called Strong Inside Out. In this episode, we discuss how she used exercise to the flip the switch, how social media can lead us down the wrong path and the strategies that we can call upon when we're feeling down. She is filled with energy and has really made the connection between movement and mindset. I know that you will love this episode. Without further ado, let's get into the show.

01:23 Hwy guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Amy Clover to the show. Good morning Amy. Or don't say good morning, I think it's afternoon for you, isn't it?

Amy

01:33 It is. It is. But good morning to you.

Stu

01:36 Thank you so much. First up, for all of our listeners over here that might not be familiar with your work, I would love it if you could just tell us a little bit about yourself and what you do.

Amy

01:48 Sure, I am a coach. I'm a writer. I'm a teacher and I'm the force behind a movement called Strong Inside Out and what that is, is it all lives over in stronginsideout.com and we help people tear down these shaming metric-based health standard and replace them with individual health that just feels good instead.

Stu: This week we welcome Jim Kwik to the show. He is the founder of Kwik Learning and a widely recognized world expert in speed-reading, memory improvement, brain performance, and accelerated learning.

For over two decades, he has served as the brain coach to students, seniors, entrepreneurs, and educators, and as an advisor to many of the world’s leading CEOs and celebrities.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What do you say to those who self-label themselves as ‘just having a poor memory’?
  • What do you think are the most common roadblocks where learning is concerned?
  • What are your thoughts on artificial stimulants like coffee or energy drinks?
  • Do you think that nutrition can impact our mental performance?

https://shop.180nutrition.com.au/

 This week, I'm excited to welcome Jim Kwik. Now Jim is the founder of Kwik Learning, a widely recognized world expert in speed reading, memory improvement, brain performance, and accelerated learning. In this episode, we discuss the strategies he developed to improve the productivity of our brains, and on the flip side, the most common roadblocks that hold us back from our full potential.
Stu: 00:01:02 So if you think you've been burdened with a poor memory, or you struggle to remember phone numbers, or simply want to sharpen your brain, then you will get a lot from this interview. Anyway, enough rambling from me. Let's get into the show.

Stu

 00:01:18 Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I am delighted to welcome Jim Kwik to the show. Good morning, Jim. How are you?

Jim

00:01:25 Stu, thank you, and thank everybody who's joining us. Looking forward to this.

Stu

 00:01:29 Fantastic. So Jim, before we get into the nuts and bolts of the show today, I would love if you could just tell our listeners a little bit about yourself, what you do, why you do it, and go for it.

Jim

 00:01:46 Sounds good. Well, if people are listening to this episode, at some level they're probably interested in improving their mental performance, their focus, their memory, they want to read faster, they know their brain controls every aspect of their life. If people see me on stage or on YouTube, they've seen me memorize 100 people's names. Like literally, 100 people stand up and I'll remember their names, or they'll give me 100 words or 100 numbers, and I'll memorize them forwards and backwards.

But I always tell people, Stu, I don't do this to impress you. I do this more to express to you what's possible because the truth is every single person who's listening to this can do that and a lot more. The only challenge is we weren't taught. If anything, we were taught a lie, a lie that somehow our intelligence, our potential, our memory for instance is somehow fixed, like our shoe size.

Stu: This week we welcome Stig Severinsen to the show. He is a Danish freediver. He is a four-time world freediving champion and holder of multiple Guinness World Records. He wrote Træk Vejret – mere energi, mindre stress (2009), published in English in 2010 as Breatheology – The Art of Conscious Breathing.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • How can we improve performance with just our breath?
  • Why do most of us panic to breathe after 15 seconds underwater?
  • Can our breathing patterns improve the way we sleep?
  • I’ve heard you talk about being ‘relaxed in an instance’, how can we achieve this?

http://180nutrition.com.au/

 This week I'm excited to welcome an old friend, Stig Severinsen. Stig is a world free diving champion. He holds multiple Guinness World Records for his aquatic exploits and he's an expert, no surprise, on the art of conscious breathing. In this episode we discuss how he's mastered the art of breathing into a practice that allows us to perform better every single day both physically and mentally and how we can become relaxed in an instant, so great technique. I tried it. It works surprisingly well. He's a great guy. His world record attempt will astound you, so please dial, have a listen. Enough rambling from me. Let's get into the show.

Hey guys. This is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Stig Severinsen to the show. Good morning, Stig.

Stig

00:01:32 Good morning, sir, and thank you very much.

Stu

00:01:34 Thank you so much for joining us. I think first up before we get into the juicy questions, I would love it if you could just tell our listeners a little bit about who you are and what you do.

Stig

00:01:46 Well, I'm a very curious person by nature, so to speak. I always loved animals, biology. So even before you got into books and all that, I loved to study nature and catch animals and observe them. So I was kind of born to become a biologist, which I then did 20, 25 odd years later. And then I went into ... Did a PhD study in medicine and so forth, went into more scientific work. But I've always been very curious, and I loved to understand more about the connection between animals, between organs. Now of course with human beings, the organs, the brain, our inner organs, so how can we optimize our health and our performance, sports basically? And how can we use then, what is my big mission in life, breathing techniques to alter to the state of mind? For example, go into the state of flow, into the zone as it's also called. How can we be in a work flow and in a more happy place in life in general? And doing most of that from breathing connected with, of course, positive psychology and the theory of flow.

Stu: This week we welcome Thomas DeLauer. He is an American celebrity trainer, entrepreneur and an author, known for his writings on inflammation inside of the human body. His fitness journey started when he was 12, while studying art history in Italy. After seeing fitness models on magazine covers, Thomas became interested in creating a muscular physique of his own. He quickly developed a passion for exercising.

During his early 20s, Thomas took some time away from the gym to focus on his career as an entrepreneur. During that time, he developed some unhealthy habits and became overweight. He realized he needed to get back into the gym, so he spent several months training hard to get back into shape.

After several months of hard work, Thomas got his old physique back and decided to start a new business that would compliment his love for fitness, so Thomas became a personal trainer. Ever since he made the switch to fitness, he went on to grow his name successfully, and help clients around the world transform their lifestyles.

Questions asked in the episode

Are carbs the enemy or can we use them to our advantage for optimizing health?
Do you think keto is the ‘magic pill’ for weight loss?
- What are your thoughts on ‘looking fit’ vs ‘being healthy’?
- What do you do to ensure that you get the best night’s sleep?
 
 
 Stu

Okay, back to the show. This week I am excited to welcome Thomas DeLauer. Now Thomas is an expert in the world of chronic inflammation. He’s a pioneer in personal transformation. He’s got a great story himself. He’s a host of a very successful and hugely educational YouTube channel as well. So in this episode, this week we discuss the many faces of inflammation. How it’s probably sabotaging your health goals. We discuss looking fit versus being healthy and whether the ketogenic diet is right for you.

So Thomas is a great guy, hugely knowledgeable, and I’m really excited to be able to share this info with you today. Anyway, enough rambling for me. Let’s get back to the show.
[00:01:30] Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Thomas Delauer to the show today. Good morning Thomas. How are you?

Thomas

What is going on? Thanks for having me.

Stu

Good stuff. So look, first up Thomas, for everybody out there, specifically over here as well, that may not be familiar with what you do, I’d love for you to just tell us a little bit about yourself. Why you do what you do as well.

Thomas

Yeah. I’ll give you kind of the 30 second elevator pitch here.

Stu

Great.

Thomas

[00:02:30] So a lot of people that do know me, know me probably from YouTube and Facebook. Just from the plethora of videos I put out there but my main claim to fame was my transformation. I was 280 pounds and working kind of in a corporate healthcare environment. Very unhappy person. Very unhealthy person. I was focused on money and focused on business and focused on career. So I had a big transformation in my life. Now I’m 180 pounds. Been on covers of multiple magazines, T.V., everything like that, so in all harnessing the power of the Ketogenic diet, fasting, and really understanding inflammation. And working closely with a lot of physicians over my career, cause I was in the health care industry. I owned an ancillary lab services company.

So that was really my claim to fame. Harnessing the power of all these doctors that I worked around and utilizing it to really transform my life. Then I realized that I had a gift for articulating more complex scientific subjects and articulating health and physiology and really breaking it down for people. That’s what I do now. I create lots of videos for a living and fortunately help lots of people, or so I think I do.

[00:00:30] Hey, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and welcome to another episode of The Health Sessions. It's here that we connect with the world's best experts in health, wellness and human performance in an attempt to cut through the confusion around what it takes to achieve a long lasting health. Before we get into the show today, you might not know that we make products too. That's right.

[00:01:00] This week I am super excited to welcome Brad Davidson. Now Brad is an author, a performance coach, speaker and presenter and is an expert on the topic of metabolism. Brad wrote his bestselling book "Stark Naked 21-Day Metabolic Reset," which has been the topic of conversation around our office for a while. Now he's a super nice guy. We had a lot of fun in this episode and discussed among many things how so many of us get it wrong when thinking about diet and exercise and how doing less and eating more carbs could lead to better health. Now I guarantee you'll get something out of this interview. I had a blast. Without further ado, let's get into the show.

Hey, guys. This is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I am delighted to welcome Brad Davidson to the show. Good morning, Brad. How are you?

Brad

Hey. I'm doing great. Thank you. So excited to be on this.

Stu

[00:02:00] We've just been inundated with emails and requests from our audience over here in Australia, they're talking about "The Stark Naked 21-Day Metabolic Reset" book that seems to be causing a little bit of a stir over here as well. I dug deep and just had a little look what's it's all about, who's this about and realized that you really got a really good story to tell. From your story, you've radically changed the way you do things and now you're helping a whole heap of people. I would love, Brad, if you could perhaps just tell us a little bit about yourself, who you are, what you do and perhaps why you do it just to kick start.

Brad

[00:02:30] Yeah. Awesome. First off, I'm a husband, father of three, got my hands full. I'm a speaker now. I travel around the United States, Canada, get international a little bit here and there. Focused on the metabolism. I'm a big fan of energy. That's my thing. I learned early on at 33 that if you lack energy, you lack life. It was interesting because my life, fitness and obsession with extreme fitness and extreme nutrition, I mean just wiped me up. Talk about a curve ball in life. I was obsessed on that. I love to work with people that are burned out, tired, have roadblocks in life. Just kind of lost that zest for life.

[00:03:00] I love to just restart that. I'm a big fan of helping people live a more fulfilled life is the big goal now.

https://shop.180nutrition.com.au/

 

. This week, I am super excited to welcome, Max Lugavere to the show. Max is a filmmaker, TV personality, health and science journalist and brain food expert. It's that brain food that really got me excited to be able to talk to Max today. It's Max's passion and obsession to discover how we can safeguard ourselves against dementia, Alzheimer's and the growing number of neurodegenerative diseases that are prevalent today. This was a personal topic for me as well because my parents had suffered, are suffering the very things that we get deep down and discover today as well with Max. In this episode, we talk about his discoveries during the making of the movie, "Bread Head," and we also chat about his new book, "Genius Foods," that help us gain back our mental clarity amongst many other things. So, without further ado, let's get into the show. Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted this morning to welcome Max Lugavere to the show. Good morning Max.

Max

Good morning Stu. How are you?

Stu

Yeah, very well. Thank you. We're super excited again today to have you on the show because you're a true pioneer in your specified topic, which for me, is neurodegenerative disease, Alzheimer's, optimizing the brain specifically as part of the pillars of health. It's a topic personally as well that is really close to home because we've got family issues as well in that area, which I'll talk to you a little bit later on the show. But first up, before we really get into the good stuff, I just wondered if you could tell our audience who might not have been exposed to your work, a little bit about yourself please.

Max

Absolutely. Again, my name is Max Lugavere. I'm 35 years old. I split my time between New York City and Los Angeles. My background is in media. I'm not a medical doctor. I was a health and science journalist for many years. That sort of began with a five-year tenure working for a TV network in the United States, that was founded by former US Vice President, Al Gore. I worked with him and his team for five years, cutting my teeth with the best of the best in Hollywood, learning how to tell a story, learning how to communicate fairly hot button topics with responsibility and grace. I left current TV to try to figure out where I was going to go with my career. I was in my mid-20s and it was around that time that my, back home in New York City, that my mother started to display strange symptoms of what would ultimately be determined to be a neurodegenerative disease. Basically, for me, I'm my mother's oldest son. My family's very tight-knit. I became, basically, obsessed with learning everything I could about what was robbing my Mom of her brain function such a young age. She was 58 when she first began showing symptoms. In tandem with that, with trying to do everything I could for my mother, my mission became bifurcated, essentially, because on the one hand, I was trying to learn why this happened to her, but on the other hand, it became very much about myself and how I can protect myself from ever having to experience cognitive decline and also to protect those that I care about, which is in a way, a sort of selfish thing. The people that I love, I want them to continue to be around me, in good health. I started learning about all of the mechanisms and associations that play when it comes to preserving and ultimately enhancing the way that our brains work. I just decided at a certain point that I couldn't stay quiet.

Wow.

Guy

You and I.

Stu

[00:00:30] Oh dear. Well this is going to be good. I'm super excited. We got some exciting news and it's just also a great opportunity for us to talk about 2018, where we're going this year, what we've got planned and yeah, looking forward to having a chat.

Guy

Yeah. Beautiful. Let's see if we can hold this space for the next 20 minutes without a guest.

Stu

Well 20 minutes is going to be pushing it. I was thinking more along the lines of five.

Guy

[00:01:00] Well, we might as well start with the main announcement, which is I'm stepping down from 180 Nutrition and which has happened for 2018. We wanted to bring it to the podcast and sort of tell everyone, just in case you'll be wondering where I've gone and what I've done and I haven't fallen off the planet.

This week we welcome to the show Dan Buettner.  He is an explorer, National Geographic Fellow, award-winning journalist and producer, and New York Times bestselling author. He discovered the five places in the world – dubbed Blue Zones – where people live the longest, healthiest lives. His articles about these places in The New York Times Magazine and National Geographic are two of the most popular for both publications.

Buettner now works in partnership with municipal governments, large employers, and health insurance companies to implement Blue Zones Projects in communities, workplaces, and universities. Blue Zones Projects are well-being initiatives that apply lessons from the Blue Zones to entire communities by focusing on changes to the local environment, public policy, and social networks. The program has dramatically improved the health of more than 5 million Americans to date. His books, The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer from the People Who’ve Lived the Longest, Thrive: Finding Happiness the Blue Zones Way, The Blue Zones Solution: Eating and Living Like the World’s Healthiest People, and The Blue Zones of Happiness were all national bestsellers. Buettner has appeared on The Today Show, Oprah, NBC Nightly News, and Good Morning America, and has keynoted speeches at TEDMED, Bill Clinton’s Health Matters Initiative, and Google Zeitgeist. His speech in January 2018 at the World Economic Forum in Davos was chosen as “one of the best of Davos.” Buettner also holds three Guinness World Records in distance cycling.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  •  Your last two books, The Blue Zones and The Blue Zones Solution, are about longevity and learning to live like the world’s centenarians. How, if at all, did that work inspire you to focus on happiness for your new book?
  • There are many books already out there about happiness. What’s different about THE BLUE ZONES OF HAPPINESS?
  • With all your discoveries, what has the most significant impact on a person’s overall happiness?
  • The book includes a Blue Zones Happiness Test. How did you design this test?

his week, we are doing it with the fantastic Dan Buettner. Now, if you’re not familiar with Dan’s work, he’s a multiple New York Times bestselling author, and he was very famously known for the book The Blue Zones. If you’ve been listening to our podcast, you know we’ve covered the topic a little bit from time to time on the air, which absolutely fascinates me. Essentially Blue Zones are dubbed where people live the longest and are the healthiest. His New York Times Sunday magazine article about these places, “The Island Where People Forgot to Die” was one of the Times’s most popular, and his National Geographic cover story, “The Secrets of Living Longer,” was a finalist for National Magazine Award. I think the Blue Zones has even reached cult status where there’s five of them in the world. And we’ll certainly get into that today. But we’re here today to talk about Dan’s new book, The Blue Zones of Happiness, and what really drives happiness and the lessons he’s learned from that. No doubt, you’re gonna enjoy the show today, so let’s go over to Dan Buettner. Hi, this is Guy Lawrence. I’m joined with Stuart Cooke as always. Good morning, Stuart.

Stu

Hello, mate.

Guy

And our awesome guest today is Dan Buettner. Dan, welcome to the show.

Dan

It’s a delight to be here.

Guy

Mate, I’m itching for this. This topic has come up so many times on our podcast over the last few years. Yeah, I can’t wait to get stuck into it. Now, Dan, we ask a question on every show for a guest, and that is, if a stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Dan

I explore traditional cultures, and I distill their wisdom for other people to use. How’s that?

Guy

That’s perfect.

Stu

That would get me talking for sure, so I like it.

Dan

I’ve had the good fortune to work for National Geographic for the last 15 years, and I’ve developed a bit of a specialty of finding extraordinary populations and then distilling down their wisdom, and we’re very rigorous about measuring these populations and then also using vetted methodologies to distill down, what can we learn from them? So that’s the general …

This week we welcome to the show Sara Gottfried MD.  She is a Harvard-trained MD, bestselling author, and leading expert on hormones. She is a board-certified gynecologist who practices functional medicine, but also a regular gal—a busy working mom, constant chauffeur for my daughters, devoted wife, and spiritual seeker.

In her practice, she helps women balance their hormones naturally—starting with their fork. She has a “food first” philosophy and passionately believe that food is the small hinge that swings the biggest doors when it comes to your health.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What is Healthspan?
  • What are the levers that most impact Healthspan?
  • How much of our health is determined by genetics versus the environment?
  • What can we expect from your book Younger?
  • If we could focus on just one thing to improve Healthspan, what would you recommend?

This week we have a very special guest for you. I just loved this podcast, and it was with Doctor Sara Gottfried. Now, if you're not familiar with Sara, she's a Harvard trained MD with over 20 years of experience. She's also the author of The New York Times best selling books, The Hormone Cure, The Hormone Reset Diet and her latest book, Younger.

[00:01:00] I kid you not, we had a blast on this podcast. We covered all sorts of topics from her own personal experiences to her thoughts on middle-age and how we can slow that aging process, but even from a disease-free perspective. On top of that what's clear about Sara is that she's a very honest, loving person, and leads by example in everything that she does. She's putting out such a great message to the world. It was just a privilege to have her on the podcast today and share this. We even get to talk about the Costa Rican term for Avila and Tequila. It's safe to say Stu was on fine form today as well as we kick off in 2018.

Anyway, I know you're going to enjoy this podcast. Let's go over to Sara Gottfried. Enjoy.

[00:01:30] Hi this is Guy Lawrence, I'm joined with Stuart Cook as always, good morning Stu.

Stu

Hello, mate.

Guy

Good to see you. A wonderful guest today is Sara Gottfried. Sara, welcome to the show.

Sara

Thank you, so happy to be here.

Guy

It's beautiful Sara. Like Stu was just saying, we've been following you from afar for so long, so it's nice to finally get round to having you on the podcast and exposing you to our listeners.

 

Sara

Same here.

Guy

Sara, we ask a certain question on every show and that is, literally, if you were say on an airplane or in the street and you sat next to a stranger, and they asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Sara

I would say I'm a troublemaker.

Stu

Yeah, that's what we like to hear.

Sara

[00:02:30] Well, it depends on the context. What I usually say is, I'm a change agent, I am a change agent for health and wealth, because your greatest wealth is your health. Our healthcare system is broken. I really want to change all those things, I feel like that's my mission, that's the reason why I'm here. I does depend on context. I used to say I'm a bored certified gynecologist, I practice functional medicine. Half the people would turn on their heel and go the opposite direction, so it's evolved over time.

In keeping up with tradition, I take a look back over 2017 and pull out some highlights of what episodes had a great impact on me. I've chosen six episodes. Can you guess what they are?

It's true privilege to interview the guests we have on the show, and with a new year upon us, I think it's healthy to reflect upon the year that was. I enjoy taking a trip down memory lane. My hope is that you do to. 

So here's to 2018!

Enjoy, Guy

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 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.

This week we welcome to the show author, speaker, comedian and internet Youtube sensation Dr. Michael Breus. He is a Clinical Psychologist and both a Diplomate of the American Board of Sleep Medicine and a Fellow of The American Academy of Sleep Medicine. He was one of the youngest people to have passed the Board at age 31 and, with a specialty in Sleep Disorders, is one of only 163 psychologists in the world with his credentials and distinction. Dr. Breus is on the clinical advisory board of The Dr. Oz Show and appears regularly on the show (>30 times in 4 years).

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • Why is sleep so important and what happens if we don’t achieve quality sleep?
  • How can we hack our jet lag?
  • What supplements can we use to help us sleep?
  • How can we improve our home environment for sleep?
  • We were intrigued by your book - The Power Of When. Can you explain a little about the book.

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.

[00:02:00] The other thing that I wanted to mention is that thanks for the iTunes reviews, guys.

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. If you’re struggling to eat cleanly on a regular basis, start with a smoothie, start at breakfast time. It’s gonna be two minutes and you can get real food real fast. It’s empowering thousands of people. We aim to reach a hundred thousand people in Australia this year to at least try 180 so we can contribute and help their nutrition. So if you know anyone as well that you might think benefit from the 180 blend. Please, just send them over to 180 where they can actually grab a free sample and take it from there. 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.

  • Are there any myths or misconceptions around mould?
  • Can we fix mould issues ourselves or do we need proper assessment and remediation?
  • What are the best mould prevention tips you can give us?

Guy

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.

Guy

[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.

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.

[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.

Hey, everyone. This is Guy Lawrence, of course, and welcome to another episode of The Health Sessions, where we connect with leading global health and wellness experts to share the best and the latest science and thinking, empowering all of us to turn our health and lives around.

[00:00:30] And we have a fantastic podcast episode for you today with the awesome Mr. Marcus Pearce. It’s been just a pleasure to get Marcus on our show, he’s a good friend, he’s a ball of energy, he’s probably the most positive person I know and every time I catch up with Marcus I feel like I’m on cloud nine, and it is just awesome to be able to share his message with you today.

[00:01:00] Now if you have no idea who Marcus is, he is the CEO of Australia’s number one health and lifestyle podcast, network, I should say, which is The Wellness Couch. 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.

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.

[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.

Guy 

[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.

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?

Robert

Right now, I take care of fat kids.

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.

  • 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.

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.

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?

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?

Mark

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?

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

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.

This week welcome to the show Nick Polizzi. He has spent his career directing and producing feature-length documentaries about holistic alternatives to conventional medicine. Most recently, Nick directed The Tapping Solution and co-edited Simply Raw - Raw for 30 Days. His current role as producer of The Sacred Science—a documentary about explorations in the Amazon to learn about traditional, healing practices—stems from a calling to honor, preserve, and protect the ancient knowledge and rituals of the indigenous peoples of the world.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What inspired you to make the documentary ‘Sacred Science’?
  • What is ayahuasca?
  • Western medicine encourages us to take a pill to fix the problem. Can we do this with indigenous medicines?
  • We are living in a world that keeps us constantly distracted. What impact is this having on us (not engaging in our own truth)?
  • You mention the “way of being” that is taught by elders in the Andes and Amazon. Please explain.

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

This week we are doing it with the awesome Nick Polizzi. Nick is a documentary maker and he is the man behind the doco, The Sacred Science. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend you check it out. It’s just a fascinating documentary and I’ll read the synopsis right now about it straight off the text.
[00:01:00] It says, “Witness the story of eight brave souls as they leave the developed world behind in search of deeper answers. Living in seclusion for one month in the heart of the Amazon jungle, these men and women take part in the powerful healing practices of Peru’s indigenous medicine men working with centuries old plant remedies and spiritual disciplines.”

[00:01:30] It’s just fascinating. We get into Nick’s own personal journey as well. We discuss ayahuasca, which is something that I have done myself as well and that’s why it was just great to get Nick on and talk about this with him and Stu as well today. In this conversation I have no doubt you’re going to find this very fascinating. Now Nick has offered very kindly to all our listeners if you want to watch his documentary for free now you can go to a special link which is thesacredscience.com/free-screening.

[00:02:00] Just find the website. Thesacredscience.com/free-screening. Then you can watch the documentary for free. After you listen to this interview I have no doubt you’re going to want to go back and check it out. The other thing I will add I want to give you as well because talk about ayahuasca. I actually documented my own ayahuasca journey three years ago in blog posts. They are on the 180 Nutrition website so if you want to check them out as well, go back to 180nutrition.com.au. Go to the search field on the home page and just search for ayahuasca and that’s going to bring up the five blog posts I wrote.

[00:02:30] There’s little videos in there too and I document all of my thoughts, and feelings, and everything in there. It was a very personal journey for me and one I’m very glad I shared. I have no doubt you’ll find them useful as well. Anyway, so there’s two things for you there. We do discuss all of this in the podcast as well if you want to make notes. Of course the links will be on the actual blog post of this interview as well when it’s released. Anyway, let’s go over to Nick. Enjoy.

Hey, this is Guy Lawrence. I’m joined with Stuart Cook. Hey, Stu.

 

Stu

Hello, Guy. How are you?

Guy

I’m absolutely great actually. Our awesome guest today is Nick Polizzi. Did I get that right?

Nick

Yeah.

Guy

Yeah, brilliant. Nick, thanks for coming on, mate. It’s the first time we’ve explored this kind of topic and I’m very much looking forward to sharing it across with our audience today. Just to kickstart the show, mate, if you were on an airplane flying to Australia right now, and you sat next to a complete stranger, and they asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Nick

Man, I’d ask them how much time they had? I guess they’d have a lot of time. What is that, a 15-hour flight?

Guy

Yeah. Exactly.

Nick

I guess I’d say I’m a documentary filmmaker, author, shamanic explorer, adventurer. Somebody who is constantly on their own evolutionary path. The medicine path I guess.

Stu

Yeah. What reaction would you get from that normally as well? What would that be?

Nick

I guess it depends on who we’re talking about? Are we talking about a suit or are we talking about a girl who just got back from Burning Man?

Stu

Burning Man. Exactly. Yeah, two very different conversations, right?

Nick

[00:04:30] Yeah, but I’m starting to find that there’s actually a pretty large cross-section of the population here in the States at least that are really interested in this kind of inner work. That kind of idea was something that even 10 years ago that wasn’t really being talked about very much. Yoga was a big deal. Yoga was this foreign thing 10 years ago or 15 years ago here in the States and now everyone and their grandmother does it. I think that we’re primed.

This week welcome to the show Chris Tate. He is a coach who combines the latest scientific research with a process of self-discovery that provides people with the knowledge, skills and support necessary to experience a life full of abundance.

He applies and teaches skills like metacognition and tools like meditation to recondition the body and subconscious mind to develop new habits and beliefs.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • After 17 years in the corporate world, how did you make the transition into coaching?
  • What is neuroscience?
  • What is metacognition?
  • How do we apply metacognition?
  • How is it going to benefit our lives?
  • What are the 3 key things we could start today, to enhance our lives?

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

Our fantastic guest is Mr. Chris Tate. Now Chris … This was genuinely a podcast that was close to my heart and I was very, very excited about him. Just to fill you in the picture a bit. I’ve first met Chris working at a Dr. Joe Dispenza workshop last year and from that point he’s become a good friend and a mentor to me as well. I love his work and everything, what he’s about and what he’s doing.

[00:01:00] Essentially, what Chris does is coach the understanding of neuroscience, metacognition, quantum physics, and meditation, so we can use these new ways to create change in our lives. Ultimately it’s the science of creating change if we’re feeling trapped, if we’re feeling a bit stuck in our lives or we want to make change or we’re in a to stress-response all the time, Chris has the tools and the understanding and the background behind it, of what’s actually going on, the chemical level within the body, and then once we have that understanding how we can actually create real changes in our lives.

[00:02:00] Now I’ve been doing the work personally for over a year and it has been a game-changer for me. There are some big words that is used, neuroscience, metacognition, don’t worry about all of that, once we get into the topic today it will become much clearer. Once you can get beyond that the stuff is actually quite simple, but it’s not necessarily easy to implement because it’s quite challenging, but a phenomenal episode. Chris is a great guy, I’m so excited about being able to give this episode to you today and enjoy it. It might be one you might need to listen to a couple of times of course, just for it to sink in. I’m certainly going to listen to it again after I finish recording this, once it’s up on iTunes as well.

Don’t forget as well, guys, I’ll just quickly mention, I haven’t mentioned it for a while, we do, do this in video and they are transcribed as well, so if you want to just sit down and see our pretty faces for a while instead. We do have different mediums, and of course the transcripts can be read and that’s all back on 180nutrition.com.au, and of course we’ve got a host of other things there as well from free downloads to [inaudible 00:02:23] articles and everything to the products. You name it, it’s all in there.

[00:03:00] If you’ve never been back there before go on have a sniff around and see what you think, and simply drop us an e-mail as well, and of course if you get a lot out of this podcast please share it on with someone that you think might benefit from this and get them to listen to it, because it is changing people’s lives and it’s phenomenal. By leaving a review on iTunes as well and subscribing to the podcast and five-starring it, it’s a simple action, but it really helps spread this message along with us. Everything you do, guys, is greatly appreciated and I hope you’re enjoying the episodes that we are bringing to you because I’m pumped, I’m loving it.

We’ve got some amazing guests coming up very shortly too, including Mark Divine, Gregg Braden, and Amy Myers as well, are all booked in, and there’s more coming up as well. Anyway, I’ve got to stop talking, let’s go over to Chris Tate. This is awesome, enjoy.

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

Stu

Good morning, Guy.
Guy

Our awesome guest today is Mr. Christ Tate, and I should say good afternoon over there. Hey, mate.

Chris

Hey mate, how are are you?

Guy

Welcome.

Chris

Good to see you, guys.

Guy

Welcome to this, it’s wonderful.

Chris

Thank you. Thank you.

Guy

Apparently it’s snowing where he is, mate, we’ve got it good over here.

Stu

Did you say snow?

Chris

It is. It’s white outside.

Stu

I’ve heard of that strange phenomenon, but I haven’t experienced it.

Chris

Well, I’ll send some in your way, we have plenty.

Stu

Please do.

Guy

[00:04:00] Chris, look, first of all, thanks for taking time out and joining us today, it’s really appreciated. Topic, I love personally and to be able to share it today on the podcast is going to be phenomenal. The first little question I’m going to ask you before we get into it is, if you were on a cocktail party and you were in a room full of strangers and one came up to you and said, “Well, hi, what do you do for a living?” What would you say?

Chris

[00:04:30] I’d run. You know, I tell people that I’m a translator. I teach a form of life coaching, which is basically just a way of saying how to live life that incorporates neuroscience, quantum physics and meditation, really, all I do is I share my own personal story with folks. I’m not a scientist, I’m not a doctor, I’m literally just a guy that identified a place in his life that needed to change and I did it. I did all the steps that all the gurus said to do, and lo and behold I learned a lot and now I have an awesome life. I really just share my own path.

This week welcome to the show Patricia Daly. She is a fully qualified Nutritional Therapist (BA Hons, dipNT, mBANT, mNTOI) based in Dublin, Ireland. Following her cancer diagnosis, she left her corporate career and started studying nutrition, specialising in the area of Integrative Cancer Care. As a Swiss native, she regularly attends training courses in Switzerland/ Germany, including at the renowned Tumor Biology Center in Freiburg, Germany.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What is the ketogenic diet and why is it effective (with cancer)?
  • Have you looked at exogenous ketones?
  • What about our emotions and stress levels?
  • Do you undertake any specific type of exercise?
  • What does Patricia Daly eat

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

This week, we are doing it with the fantastic Patricia Daly. This was a topic I was very excited to get into. I don’t want to give away too much for the show, because Patricia’s going to go into in great detail. In a nutshell, she was diagnosed with eye cancer at the age of 28, I think; correct me if I’m wrong, I apologize in advance.

[00:01:00] Essentially, she felt she was exercising, doing all the right things anyway, and it came as quite a surprise to her. Then after that, she started to take power into her own hands, essentially. Then started adjusting her diet; was then re-diagnosed again after two more years, and the cancer had come back more aggressively. She’s clearly a very strong-willed person, and she continued to research and investigate cancer. She’s doing remarkably well and she now shares her journey and story with you.

[00:01:30] You can check out her website, patriciadaly.com, where she’s got a heap of information there. She’s also got a brand new book out called The Ketogenic Kitchen, which is fantastic and I highly recommend you checking it out … from a dietary perspective anyway.

[00:02:00] We get into this fascinating journey, what’s she’s learned, how she’s changed her life. In fact, and how we can apply it to ourselves as well. I have no doubt you are going to enjoy today’s show. As always, if you’re listening to this through us iTunes, just hit that subscribe button, five star us.

[00:02:30] Hi, this is Guy Lawrence. I’m joined with Stuart Cook as always. Hey, Stu.

Stu

Hello, Guy.

Guy

Our fantastic guest today is Patricia Daly. Patricia, welcome to the show.

Patricia: Yeah, hi. It’s brilliant to be here. I’m delighted to be asked to come on your show, it’s great.

Guy

[00:03:00] Look, I’m very excited; I’m very excited about your show and your own personal journey and story. I just believe it’s going to inspire and help so many others, because it’s such a fascinating topic as well. Before we get into that, Patricia, I’m going to ask you a quick question. That was basically, “If somebody stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?”

Patricia:

I would say I’m a nutritional therapist. That’s usually sort of the most neutral form. If I absolutely don’t want to talk about … That’s the thing, as soon as you say you’re a nutritional therapist, people just jump on it and they actually want advice on what to have for breakfast.

Hey guys! To quickly introduce myself, i am a 19 year old, living in the Western Suburbs of Victoria, Australia. I am an avid runner, usually running around 90km a week, with the addition of indispensable gym sessions (twice a week). In addition I am currently studying a Bachelor of exercise science, towards the pursuit of a Physiotherapy career, accompanied by a major interest in the overall wellbeing of an individual, cognitively and nutritionally. With all that saying, I was hoping you guys could advise me on some of your \"non-negotiable\'s\" which you deem absolute paramount, or at least helpful to a daily life. Ranging from the use of small nutritional tips (ie. ACV with lemon) to practising the use of visualisation (and how so). I really do believe the overall wellbeing of an individual is being bypassed by many today, and i really want to start ensuring i am ticking as many boxes as possible in order to fulfil my potential, and simply live a stress free, happy life. Thank you! any advice would be greatly appreciated, with that in mind; i also listen to your podcasts weekly on my way to uni! love them so keep it up! Conor :)

This week welcome to the show Dr. Kieron Rooney. He is a researcher in Metabolic Biochemistry from University of Sydney. Kieron’s research portfolio has included both human and small animal studies investigating the role of diet and physical activity on parameters of fuel storage and utilisation as they pertain to dysregulated metabolic states such as obesity and type 2 diabetes.

Kieron is a fun, down to earth guy who gives us an incite to what is going in the world of nutritional study from an academic perspective. So if you are wondering why there could be so much disagreement out there on the world of nutrition, then watch this as Kieron sheds some light on what’s really going on.

Questions we ask in the episode

  • What is “Fat max” and how do we measure it?
  • Where does exercise intensity fit into it?
  • How do we become part of your research study?
  • How do we maximise post-recovery dependant upon our goals?
  • If you were a young elite athlete, which dietary fuel approach would you take?

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

Today, we’re cutting through the confusion and connecting with a seriously global health and wellness leader and his name is Dr. Kieron Rooney. We welcome him back to the show today to discuss another fantastic topic which is fat adaption and oxidization because Kieron has actually been putting a study together and he’s actively doing it at the moment, which in a nutshell, he’s going to be wanting to know how we can best utilize fat to be burnt through exercise.

[00:01:00] We were very happy to get Kieron on today. We’ll get into all sorts of topics including recovery, exercise intensity, where does fat adaptation sit within all of it including low carb, building muscle mass. It’s all in there and it was a fascinating journey. Now, Kieron has a wealth of knowledge and I would definitely say you probably need to listen to this podcast a couple of times to truly grasp some of the concept Kieron is talking about. If you do get it, it will play a big role in the way you actually think about your training, your timing and the foods you eat as well moving forward, which is fantastic.

[00:01:30] Now, Kieron as well is actively looking for volunteers in Sydney as we speak. If you do volunteer your time, you’re going to require about three hours and from it, you’re going to get a free health assessment and they’re going to do some fitness test on you as well and even take some blood markets so then they can use this as part of a big study Kieron is doing in terms of how well you’re actually utilizing fat in the body as fuel while exercising.

[00:02:00] If you are keen to do that, you can drop Kieron an email, so it’s kieron.rooney@sydneyedu.au. That’s kieron.rooney@sydneyedu.au. What you can do is well, just do a Google search for him. You can come back to our website, type in Kieron, this will come up. All the information is going to be there for you so if that’s something you’re interested in, I highly recommend you check it out. I’m going to participate in January myself. Without further ado, let’s get onto the show. Enjoy. Hi. This is Guy Lawrence. I’m joined with Stu as always. Hey Stu. Good morning.

Stu

Hello mate. Good morning.

Guy

[00:02:30] Our fantastic guest today who we welcome back to the show is Dr. Kieron Rooney. Kieron, welcome back mate.

Dr. Kieron

Good morning. Thanks Guy, thanks Stu. Glad to be here.

Guy

Oh man, looking forward to it. The last episode became very, very popular and looking forward to the pearls of wisdom you’re going to share with us today for us and our listeners as well. Just to kick-start the show buddy and the fact that some people might not have listened to the last show, so we’re keeping it to our shoulder, but if someone stopped you in the middle of the street and said, “What do you do for a living mate?” what would you say?

Dr. Kieron

I guess I should start with what I get paid to do which is I’m an academic at the University of Sydney and there, I am a course director for the Bachelor of Exercise, Physiology degree. I do research into sugar metabolism. At the moment, we’re looking at sugar withdrawal. That’s our aim for the next three years but also sugar regulation from a public health perspective as well.

This week welcome to the show Katy Bowman. She is a biomechanist, movement ecologist and author of books on natural movement, human development and diseases of captivity. In this show, she introduces a new concept called movement-based lifestyle. It is one that keeps all of you moving—from your arms and legs to your microbiome—gives you large doses of “Vitamin Nature,” and “Vitamin Community.” It is the addition of movement back into life.

Katy Bowman, M.S. has earned an international reputation for achieving unprecedented results in reducing pain, increasing bone density, improving metabolic health, and solving pelvic floor mysteries. She is the founder and director of the Restorative Exercise Institute, a large organization and online training program that teaches the biomechanical model of preventative medicine to health professionals and laypeople worldwide. The author of Every Woman’s Guide to Foot Pain Relief: The New Science of Healthy Feet (2011), Alignment Matters: The First Five Years of Katy Says (2013), and Move Your DNA (coming Fall, 2014), Katy’s writing explore the relationship between cultural habits, movement, and disease. She is the creator and talent of the Aligned and Well DVD series and blogs regularly at Katy Says.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • How important is footwear?
  • What’s the difference between exercise and movement?
  • Why is gym-focused fitness unsustainable?
  • We live in a world where everything is outsourced and done for us. How much do you think this is effecting us?
  • Society encourages us to move less, how we can reverse that trend?

This week we're doing it with the awesome Katie Bowman. Now, if you're not familiar with Katie, she is a Bio-mechanist, by training, and she is a serious wealth of information. An awesome lady, and a very passionate, and I thoroughly enjoyed this interview today. She is the author of 7 books and we got her on the podcast today to chat about a new book, "Movement Matters," and I will say this much about the interview, it has really continued to get me thinking about how I spend my day, and essentially on whether I'm moving or not, you know, and obviously, you know, I'm here now from a stand up desk. That's what I'm doing, recording this from, but what Katie was really stressing and getting across today is to actually look at the way we're actually not moving at all and stillness.

[00:01:30] Me in the standing desk, yes it is a solution from sitting down, but I can still remain still standing, which might not necessarily be helping the cause, and that's just got me thinking about that after the podcast anyway. I am going to be looking at Katie's work much more closely and how I bring more movement into my day. It's one thing I'm very passionate about, because ultimately what Katie will explain today is movement and exercise are 2 different things from a technical standpoint too.
[00:02:00] It will definitely get you thinking. There is loads of nuggets of wisdom in there, and I'm sure you'll enjoy it, and please let us know if you do. 2 things guys; hit me up on Snapchat. My username is guyl180 or even Instagram stories. It you will reach me. Let us know which content you're enjoying at the moment, you know, what podcast are you finding interesting, you know, we're always on the hunt to bring in more guests.

[00:02:30] We've got some phenomenal guests lined up over the next 2 months as well, which I'm very excited about, but ultimately as well we want to make sure that we're providing in value and content for you guys to listen to, as well as myself, cause you know, there's nothing that pleases me more than being able to reach out to some of these people and get them all, and be able to spend an hour with them and chat to them, and pick their brains really, and share across the channels.

[00:03:00] Yeah, please let us know if there is anyone in particular that ... Or the type of content we do, and cause we're exploring all avenues, because you might know I'm very passionate about meditation, but we're bringing in movement, and then, you know, mindset and obviously the health aspects as well. Yeah, let us know from that and of course, if you listen to this on a regular basis and you're not subscribed to our iTunes channel, we'd love it if you are. Just hit the subscribe button. 5 star it, if you think we're worth it. It really just helps rankings.

[00:03:30] I ask every week. I'll continue to ask, purely because it just helps drive this message out there more and more, and leave an honest review. We read them all. We do read them out now and then on the podcast. I'm not set up for it now. I completely forgot, because I was going to read one out, but I'll do it in the next episode. Anyway, let's go over to Katie Bowman, and all your support is greatly appreciated guys. Enjoy.

Hi, this is Guy Lawrence. I'm joined with Stewart Cook. Hey Stewart?

Stu

Halo Guy.

Guy

Our lovely guest today is Katie Bowman. Katie welcome to the show.

Katy

Hey, thanks for having me.

Guy

[00:04:00] Fantastic. You know it's interesting Katie. Your name kept coming up on our podcast, sort of over the last 6 to 9 months, with different interviews, and I thought, "Wow. I've got to check this Katie out," and I looked on to your website, and I saw, "A day in the life of Katie Bowman," this great big blog post, and I thought that was absolutely fantastic, so I was hooked from that point on, and then obviously researched you, and you've currently come on today, so yeah, appreciate it mate. Thank you.

Katy

Oh very well.

Guy

[00:04:30] The first question is, just to ... Because I'm pretty sure we'll be exposing you to a new audience as well, if a stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Katy

Well in one word I'm a Bio-mechanist, you know, career wise I'm a Bio-mechanist, but then that word usually requires lots of other words to explain what it is, but it's someone who studies the mechanical nature of living phenomenon.

Guy

Right.

Katy

Anything that's living Bio, so whether it's plants or animals or all of it together and mechanics, Newtonian Physics, pressure, forces, friction, but what are the mechanics of living systems, you know, living systems have rules, and everything living falls under the laws of the physical universe and what does that mean for how they work. That's what a Biomechanist is interested in, and then I personally studied human mechanics, you know, was my university training.

This week welcome to the show Chris Kresser.s a globally recognized leader in the fields of ancestral health, Paleo nutrition, and functional and integrative medicine. He is the creator of Chris Kresser dot com, one of the top 25 natural health sites in the world, and the author of the New York Times best seller, Your Personal Paleo Code (published in paperback in December 2014 as The Paleo Cure). Chris has been studying, practicing, and teaching alternative medicine for more than fifteen years.

Chris’s work is informed by his own experience recovering from a chronic, complex illness which began while he was traveling in Southeast Asia in his early 20s. After seeing more than twenty doctors around the world and spending thousands of dollars in an effort to diagnose and treat his condition, Chris decided to take his health into his own hands.

Through extensive study and research, continual self-experimentation, and formal training in integrative medicine, he recovered from this debilitating illness and went on to share what he learned with others through his popular blog, podcast, and private practice.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What is functional medicine and how does it address those problems?
  • How do genes and environmental factors play a part in our longterm health.
  • Gut health... is this a buzz word or do we need to carefully consider it.
  • What are the fundamental problems with conventional medicine?
  • What are your non-­negotiables, to be the best version of yourself?

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

 

This week we are doing it with the awesome Chris Kresser.
[00:01:00] I was very excited to get Chris on the show. I've been listening to his podcast for quite some time, and he was just the perfect gentleman, a great guy, and insane amount of wealth and knowledge. Myself and Stu picked his brains for an hour and got stuck into all sorts of topics. If you're not familiar with Chris, he is a globally recognized leader in the fields of functional and integrative medicine. He's also the creator of chriskresser.com, which is one of the top 25 natural health sites in the world. He is also the author of the New York Times bestselling book, "Your Personal Paleo Code".

We got into Chris's own journey, how he got into the functional medicine in the first place, which was driven by his own issues and pain. Then from there, what he's learned along the way, and from diagnosis, and what exactly is functional medicine, and how we can apply it and how it can help us to live healthier and happier lives as well. I have no doubt you're going to enjoy the show guys.

[00:02:00] I just wanted to mention as well, if you haven't been back to our website, 180nutrition.com.eu, we're always updating it, and we've updated the actual website only a couple of weeks ago to make it much more user-friendly to find the content that's in there. We're constantly adding new products as well, ones that we believe and stand by. Not sure if you knew, but we've brought in a [180 Greens Plus 00:01:47] product. That's been doing fantastically well since we released that. We've also brought in [Alglutemine 00:01:53] as well, which is designed to help the small intestine, and also help recovery as well and muscle aches. It's worth getting over there, check out what we got guys, because they're all there, the tools that we use, and they're there to design to help you and serve your purpose so we can all improve our nutritional health, and ultimately live a happier life as well. Go back there to 180nutrition.com.eu. Anyway, let's go over to Chris Kresser. Enjoy.

[00:02:30] Hey, this is Guy Lawrence. I'm joined with Stewart Cook as always. Hi Stu. Good to see you there.

Stu

Hello Guy.

Guy

Our awesome guest today is Mr. Chris Kresser. Welcome to the show buddy.

Chris

Hey Guy, Stu. Happy to be here, thanks for inviting me.

Guy

Oh it's an honor, man.

Stu

Thanks for coming on.

Guy

Yeah, yeah, yeah. We're big fans of your work, and it's going to be great to dig in for the next hour, I tell you. What I've generally been doing lately, Chris, is asking two questions to kick off the show. The first one's a short one basically: If a stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Chris

That really depends on who asks. It's a tricky question. I'll typically say that I train clinicians in functional medicine. Then they'll say, "What the heck is functional medicine," and we have a conversation about it. That really is how ... There are a lot of things that I do, but that's the thing that I'm most passionate about right now. That would probably be how I'd answer the question today, but six months ago I might have answered it a different way, and maybe in two years I'll answer it still a different way, we'll see.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What were the first steps you took in making health / nutritional changes?
  • Epic5 Challenge: Five Ironman events in one week. How and why? :)
  • What are the key factors we need to consider to be able to train at an elite level, when longevity is a priority?

Hey, this is Guy Lawrence with 180 Nutrition, and welcome to another episode of the Health Sessions, where of course we're cutting through the confusion by connecting with leading global health and wellness experts, to share the best in latest science and thinking, and empowering everyone that we possibly can to turn their health and lives around. This week, our fantastic guest is Mr. Rich Roll. Now, if you're not familiar with Rich, he is a [sheer guy 00:00:31], full of inspiration, I can assure you.

He became a number one best selling author, I think back in 2012, with his book Finding Ultra. He's got a whole amazing story prior to that as well, of transformation, that we get into, into the podcast today. He's got a hit podcast called the Rich Roll Podcast, which is always seen the top of the charts here in Australia, and he's doing amazing things in the USA with the podcast as well, so we're highly recommending you'll check that out after listening to this, no doubt.

He's well known for doing what was called the Epic 5 challenge. Basically, it's completing five Ironman distance triathlons on five islands of Hawaii in under a week. I think he did that. He said two years prior to that he didn't even ride a bike, so it's a true transformational story. It's amazing what Rich has gone on and achieved. He's become a phenomenal athlete, and a plant-based athlete at well. He's also been featured in, let me think now, CNN, Los Angeles Times, Sunday Magazine, the Huffington Post, Stanford Magazine, Men's Health Living, to name a few. He's done whole retreats as well, all around the world, and he's just doing great things. It was great to actually sit down with Rich for what was it, 45 minutes, an hour today, and pick his brains and discuss all these amazing topics.

We'll get over to that. I just want to read out a iTunes review that came in recently, because I actually thought it was fantastic advice as well. That was by Penny of PB Lifestyles. Penny, I even checked out your website, mate. You're doing fantastic things, traveling around the world, inspiring others to live a healthy lifestyle. Well done, mate. Keep it up. It basically says, "Guy and Stu, thanks so much for helping to make this world a better place. I love that you're not like some of the wellness communities are, and I love the variety of guests you've interviewed. I'm trying to take just one actionable item away from each podcast." So are we, Penny, so are we.

"I think if everyone did that, worked on one take away from each episode, then they would help to not only make themselves healthier, but more present individuals, but contribute to a more peaceful world." We believe the same thing, and reviews like that really give us a kick and inspire us to keep searching the globe for the best possible people we can have on this podcast, and share it with everyone, so much appreciated. Guys, if you do get the chance to leave a review, please do. It takes two minutes on iTunes, and helps us spread these podcasts, which of course are free for everyone, across and get us found globally, which is the grand plan, and we're slowly getting there. Any feedback too, is greatly appreciated. Anyway, let's go over to Rich Roll. Enjoy.

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

Stu

Hello, mate.

Guy

Good to see you, mate. Our awesome guest today is Rich Roll. Rich, welcome to the podcast.

Rich

Great to be here, guys. Really excited to talk to you today. Thanks for having me.

Guy

Oh look, it's truly appreciated, honestly. We kick off the show, I seem to be asking the same question every show lately, which is a good way to start. If a complete stranger stopped you on the street, Rich, and then said, "What do you do for a living, mate?" How would you answer that?

Rich

I always struggle with this question. I never know quite how to answer it, but I guess the best answer is to say that I'm an athlete, I'm an author, I'm a wellness advocate. I do lots of different things. I host a podcast, I write books, I blog, I vlog. Kind of omnipresent on the internet, but basically all pivoting around trying to help people unlock their best selves, and doing that through fitness, nutrition, and meditation and other areas of self-improvement.

Guy

You're not the only one that struggles with that question either, mate. It seems to be the guests we're having on the show lately. Look, I've got a sneaking suspicion we're going to be exposing you to a lot of new listeners on our show, and the one thing we love doing is delving into the background a little bit of the history of Rich Roll. I've been certainly looking into you a lot more this week, mate, and you've been on a fascinating journey. It's quite incredible. I was wondering, would you mind taking us back a bit and touching on what you used to do, to yeah, the changes you've been making, and the epiphanies along the way, I guess?

This week we welcome back to the show Donal O'Neill. The man behind the movies Cereal Killers & CK2 - Run On Fat, is here to discuss his new movie: The Big Fat Fix.

“The Big Fat Fix” is an independent co-production between Donal and cardiologist Aseem Malhotra. In the movie, they travel to Pioppi in southern Italy where the residents enjoy longevity and a healthy old-age with low rates of heart disease, diabetes and dementia. With their discoveries in Pioppi, they offer practical solutions to preventing and reversing diet-related disease.

Having financed the movie with a successful crowdfunding campaign backed by Jamie Oliver and supportive articles in the New York Times and Men’s Health, the content of the movie is 100% free from any commercial influence.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • You premiered in British Parliament - how did that happen and what was the reaction?
  • Beyond travelling to Italy, how much science is behind the findings and recommendations within the movie?
  • Great to see the ‘move daily’ message in there. What have been your discoveries when it comes to exercise lifestyle and health?
  • After everything you’ve learned, what are you views on carbohydrate consumption?
  • What are your stress reduction strategies?

Hi, this is Guy Lawrence of 180 nutrition and welcome to this week's episode of health sessions where of course we have cut through the confusion by connecting with leading global health and wellness experts around the globe to share the latest science and thinking and empowering everyone including ourselves to turn our health and lives around. This week we are doing it with the awesome Donal O'Neil. If you are not familiar with Donal, we've had him on the podcast before and he's the man behind the documentaries 'Cereal Killers' and 'Cereal Killers To Run Off Fat.'

[00:01:00] We've got him back on the show today to discuss his new documentary, 'The Big Fat Fix.' I watched it the other day and it is awesome and I encourage everyone that listens to this show to go and check it out. Just rent it, download it, stream it, whatever, share it with your family because it is an awesome message. In this movie, he basically teams up with cardiologist Hassim [U-th-ra 00:00:54] from the UK and he takes him on a journey to a small forgotten village in Italy where the true secrets of the Mediterranean diet can be found.

The message I love from this movie, it's not only food, it's medicine, but lifestyle is medicine too. I thought they nailed the message really really well.

Hi, this is Guy Laurence. I'm joined with Stewart Cook as always. Hey, Stu.

Stu

Hello mate. How are you.

Guy

Our awesome guest today is Donal O'Neil. Donal, welcome back to the show.

Donal

Thanks guys. Good to see you again.

Guy

Mate, did you know that you have actually just broke a new record for 180nutrition. The first person to come back on the show for the 3rd time in 4 years. Can you believe that.

Donal

I will take a bow ...

Guy

It's absolutely awesome to have you back on to discuss your new movie in a bit, 'The Big Fat Fix.' We watched it the other day and just thought again you've just nailed a fantastic message and if we can continue to spread the word for you mate, then we are happy to get behind it because you are doing awesome stuff Donal. Well done. Fantastic.

Donal

Much appreciated. Thank you.

Guy

Let's maybe touch on who's Donal O'Neil, just in case people ... We are picking up new listeners every week. I'm pretty sure maybe 50% of [inaudible 00:03:34] seen your movies from the past, but we could be exposed to a new audience today as well. How would you do your elevator pitch, mate? Who's Donal O'Neil in a snapshot?

Donal

[00:04:00] In a nutshell. I'm a former athlete who got very badly injured and got to the age of 30 and couldn't run any more. That's probably the first thing I would say about myself. About 6 years ago, my father had an unexpected heart attack. He too was an elite athlete and I wondered why the hell that happened. That curiosity led me to completely changing careers. I was in the tech industry prior to that and online marketing and I decided I want to tell a few stories about health and wellness and human performance and I flew to South Africa and fortunately bumped into one professor Timothy [Nokes 00:04:27] who just happens to be the greatest sports scientist on the planet.

[00:05:00] He was very generous with his time and his resources and we made a movie together called 'Cereal Killers.' That was back in 2013. Off the back of that, we followed up with phenomenal [inaudible 00:04:44] champion who contacted me off the back of 'Cereal Killers' to say that he too eats a low carbohydrate, high fat diet and was winning world [armor 00:04:53] title. We were on a bit of a role there and 'The Big Fat Fixer,' our third movie with the brilliant young British Cardiologist Hassim [Ma-la-ha-dra 00:05:02] takes a full circle into my 6 year investigation into health and lifestyle and longevity and human performance.

In a nutshell, that's ... That's actually not a nutshell, that's quite a lengthy nutshell.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What does paleo mean to you?
  • Have your views regarding paleo changed at all since your book ‘Practical Paleo’ came out in 2012?
  • Why do so many people struggle to make long-lasting change when it comes to health and good eating habits?
  • How do we create healthy eating habits when our families are not onboard with the changes or have heard negative press regarding the paleo diet?
  • You’re a busy entrepreneur, how do you handle stress?

Hey. This is Guy Lawrence of 180 Nutrition. Of course, welcome to this week’s episode of the health sessions where we cut through the confusion by connecting with leading global health and wellness experts to share the best and the latest science and thinking, empowering people to turn their health and lives around. This week, we are doing it with Diana Sanfilippo, who is the best-selling author of this book that I actually happen to have with me, Practical Paleo. Now, this has been dubbed the Paleo Bible by readers everywhere. It came out, I think in 2012 and spent many many weeks on the New York Times’ Bestseller’s list. I think she has sold over 500,000 copies, which is pretty impressive.

[00:01:00] If you’re not familiar with Diane, she is owner, founder of Balanced Bites. She is also a certified nutrition consultant and of course the New York Times’ Bestselling Author. She got an impressive resume. It was awesome to have her on the show today. We literally dive into the topics of what does it mean to leave a practical paleo life, how she implements it in her lifestyle and what she has learned since the book has first come out. We get into, she is now releasing a revised edition of the book very soon by the time you’re hearing this podcast.

Also, why revise a book as opposed to writing a new one as well. I guess the four years in between, if any reveres a change. We’re getting into all sorts of topics including stress management, her exercise routines and all sorts. It was great. It was awesome to have her on the show. She is definitely a wealth of information and certainly making people think about the way they eat, which is what we are all for. Now, if you are listening to this on iTunes, if you could leave us a review, that would be fantastic. It just helps to spread the word. We want to get people listening to this for free, the reviews help us internationally as well.
[00:02:00] By subscribing in it as well, put five stars, so if you are enjoying these podcasts and consuming on a regular basis, a, it would be great to hear from you. Let us know. Also of course, help others find this podcast too. Yeah, we just love getting it out there. Anyway, let’s go over to the show and over to Diane. Enjoy.

Guy

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

Stu

Hello mate.

Guy

Our lovely guest today is Diane Sanfilippo. Diane, welcome to the show.

Diane

Thanks for having me.

Guy

[00:03:00] I hope I got the surname correct. Now, before I get into the questions and start hitting you, I have to say, I’ve got your book here. My fiancee absolutely pulls this apart and loves it. I know she is very excited to know that you’re being interviewed today. That’s awesome, mate. It’s incredibly. Now, before we get into the book and everything else that you do, the first question I like to ask everyone on the show is if you were, say, at a bus stop and you were stopped by a complete stranger on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Diane

I always struggle with that question because I often don’t know how to describe what I do. Typically, these days, I say I’m an author. I write health and nutrition cookbooks, some thing to that effect.

It often depends on who is asking and what they might understand. If they’re someone much older who wouldn’t really get the whole online Internet-based business, programs and all of that. Typically, I do say I’m an author and I write nutrition-based cookbooks because that’s the bulk of it at this point, I suppose.

This week we welcome to the show Dr James Doty. No exaggeration, this is a journey of mammoth proportions. He’s been there, done it, worn a t-shirt!

He is a clinical professor in the Department of Neurosurgery at Stanford University, and the Director of the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education, of which the Dalai Lama was the founding benefactor.

On top of his incredible resume, he's also a great guy and it was a true privilege to interview James. If you have not heard of James or his book 'Into The Magic Shop - A Neurosurgeons Quest To Discover The Mysteries Of The Brain & The Secrets Of The Heart', then you are in for a real treat! Sit back and enjoy as you discover the true magic that's within us all.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • Why write the book, and what  message do you hope readers will gain from it or take action with?
  • What were the magic tricks that Ruth taught you?
  • You mention (in the book) isolation and loneliness puts us at greater risk for early disease and death than smoking. Please explain.
  • You’re a successful entrepreneur, and you made a great deal of money and then lost it then gave it away. Can you share with us what happened and why did you do that?
  • What are your non-negotiables to be the best version of yourself?

Hey. This is Guy Lawrence of 180 Nutrition. Welcome to this week’s episode of the Health Sessions where of course we are cutting through all the confusion by connecting with leading global health and wellness experts to share the best of the latest science and thinkering, empowering people to turn their health and lives around. Boy, do we have an episode for you today.

I’ve sure said in the past that I don’t like talking up the episodes too much, because I want the interview to just unfold as it goes and summarize your own conclusions from it, but it still ceases to amaze me till this day that sometimes you have a guest on, and you get simply blown away by it.

[00:01:00] Our special guest today is Dr. James Doty who is a neurosurgeon and a professor at the Stanford University in California. I’m not going to give too much away. It’s a long episode. I think it goes over for an hour. Relax, settle in, and let this journey unfold, because what James shares with you is a journey of mammoth proportions. He’s been there, done it, worn a t-shirt.

He’s written this book called, Into the Magic Shop which is a memoir of his life, and it’s a neurosurgeon’s quest to discover the mysteries of the brain, and the secrets of the heart. Keegan Smith from the Real Movement Project, a good mate of mine recommended it to me a few weeks back, and myself and my fiance sat down and read this thing within a week, and was blown away it.

[00:02:00] We reached out to James. He was kind enough to give up his time to come on the podcast to share his journey. His book has been read and endorsed by the Hoganas, the Dalai Lama, Arianna Huffington, to name a few, Dean Ornish. These guys are all praising it. This book has come out, and I’m sure in time this book is going to go absolutely viral, global and empower many, many people’s lives. I guarantee you’ll probably end up buying the book once you’ve read this, and I certainly recommend it. We would just want to push this to as many people as possible.

If you enjoy this episode, I’m going to ask you please share it with someone, because I truly think if somebody needs some inspiration, if they’re not in their best place, this podcast will help them, no doubt. It’s inspired me, no doubt too. Look, enjoy, let us know what you think, drop us an email, hit me up on Snapchat, or of course leave us a review. Let’s go for James Doty. Enjoy.

Hi, this is Guy Lawrence. I’m joined with Stuart Cooke as always. Hi Stuart.

Stu

Hello Guy.

Guy

Our fantastic guest today is Dr. James Doty. James, welcome to the show.

James

Wonderful to be here with you too. I don’t know what time it is there, but it’s great to be with you.

Stu

It’s 9:00 in the morning James. It’s crystal clear outside, and we’re looking forward to a beautiful Friday. Good morning from Australia.

 

Guy

I reached out to you after reading your book. I think I read it within one week. I should give Keegan Smith a shout out as well, my friend because he recommended me this book a few weeks ago, and I loved the sound of it. He’s like, “You’ve got to check this book out.” Then I ordered it the next night, and myself and fiance literally read it in a week, and I was like, “Oh my God. This is fantastic.” Getting you on the show today is greatly appreciated. I just want to share that message with as many people as possible as well, so yeah, fantastic.

The first question I love to ask everyone James on the show is if you were on an aero-plane and a complete stranger sat next to you and asked you what you did a for a living, what would you say?

James

[00:04:00] Sometimes people will just engage in an idle conversation to be polite, and if that’s the case I simply tell them I’m a doctor. There is another subset of people though who clearly are sincerely interested. It’s not a matter of chit-chat, but they are truly interested in what you’re doing, or who you are. If I have a sense it’s that type of a person, I tell them that I have a deep interest in compassion, and in fact I study compassion, and how being compassionate or being of service can change ones life.

Hey, this is Guy Lawrence of 180 Nutrition and welcome to this week's episodes of the health sessions where, of course, we capture the confusion by connecting with leading global health and wellness experts to share the best and latest science thinking on empowering everyone to turn their health lives around.

[00:01:00] This week we are doing it with the awesome Mr. Ben Greenfield. Now, Ben, if you are not sure of who he is, the pitch is basically he's an ex-body builder, an iron man triathlete. He is a Spartan racer, coach, a speaker, and an author of the New York Times best seller book, Beyond Training - Mastering Endurance, Health and Life. He's also been voted one of the top 100 most influential people in health and fitness. It was a pleasure to have him on the show today. When we logged on, Ben was on a walking treadmill with his top off so that kind of sums up Ben and his passion for health and fitness, and everything that he does and shares his information very generously.

We covered so many topics today. He's an absolutely great guy, great sense of humor. We in from topics from sleep to hacking his morning routines to even ayahuasca. We touch on also how he has reduced his exercise routines as well and his training methods, even though he is still competing at a very high-end level. It was all fascinating stuff. Just sit back and enjoy, and you might have to listen to this twice because he has a wealth of information, no doubt.

Of course, you're always enjoying these episodes, and you're listening to them on a regular basis, all we ask in return is if you could leave a review on iTunes and, of course, hit the subscribe button and 5-star, and that just helps us continue to get these great podcasts out to people that might not have heard, or [inaudible 00:01:51] come across our information before, so all that's greatly appreciated.

Hi. This is Guy Lawrence of 180 Nutrition. Welcome to another episode of The Health Sessions, where we cut through the confusion by connecting with leading global health and wellness experts to share the best and the latest science and thinking, empowering people to turn their health and lives around.

We are doing it this week with the super fantastic Mr. Damian Kristof. I have to say, this was a killer of an episode. If you’re unfamiliar with Damian, he has a wealth of experience. He’s been working in the health industry for over 20 years. He’s a nutritionist, naturopath, and a chiropractor. He’s also a highly sought-after presenter and speaker in the wellness industry. I’ve seen him personally speak myself, and I thought he was amazing. His in-depth knowledge of the body, nervous system, food functions, and responses, it’s all in there and it’s all in today’s episode.

[00:01:00] We hit him up with all sorts of stuff, from chiropractic therapy, the importance of it, it’s had a bit of bad wrap lately in the press and stuff. We’re just interested in getting his take on it, and the whole spinal adjustment, stress. What else do we go into? We go into nutritional stuff, from what he calls we should be looking at nutritional care, not nutritional scare, which I love the whole concept as well. His recent trip to, forgive me if I can’t pronounce this correctly, Icaria, sorry, Damian, in Greece, where it’s a blue zone, where people are living the longest on Earth. He spent 10 days there, and what he learned from that experience, too.

[00:02:00] Sit back. This is going to be awesome conversation that we just had with him. I also want to give out a shout out to Alita T., who’s just left a review on our iTunes page. She says, “Just loving Guy’s podcasts, our guests’ interview style, wealth of knowledge, and passion for wellness. Oh, and the theme music.” That’s cool as well. That theme music took me ages to put together 4 years ago. Still going strong. “100 out of 10, Guy’s. Brilliant. Can’t think you enough.” I can’t think you enough either for a review like that. That’s really appreciated. As you always hear me say, these reviews help us get rank in iTunes and internationally, as well. Also by subscribing to your iTunes channel and 5 star rating. If you could just do one of them things if you remember, during our busy days, it just helps other people find these podcasts, too.

Anyway, let’s go over to Mr. Damian Kristof. Enjoy.

Hi, this is Guy Lawrence. I’m joined by Stuart Cook, as always. Hi, Stu.

Stu:

Hello mate.

Guy:

Welcome, mate. Our awesome guest today is Mr. Damian Kristof. Damian, welcome to the show.

Damian:

Hey, Stu. Great to be here. Thanks for having me.

Guy:

[00:03:00] No worries, mate. It’s been a long time coming. I’m very excited to have you on. I’ve been doing my homework the last couple of days. I thought, “Boy, this boy has got a lot of strings in his bow.” You are a man of many talents, mate, and I’m looking forward to unearthing them today over the next 45 minutes or an hour, something like that.

Damian:

There’s a bit to talk about, isn’t there? I saw your list of questions. I was like, “Wow, far out. There’s heaps there.” I’m happy with that. That’s great. I’m really looking forward to sharing with you guys. It has been a long time, but I’ve watched from afar what you guys have been up to, and I love it. Obviously, we’re traveling very similar paths, so this is potentially going to be great for everybody.

Guy:

Yeah. I’ve always been kicking off the show lately, mate, with, if you were stopped by a complete stranger on the street, and they asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Damian:

[00:04:00] On a Facebook stalker. That’s what I do for a living. Apart from that, I spend my whole life helping people do a better job with their health. That’s my modus operandi. I’m motivated by seeing people do a better job with their health. Obviously, I run Forage, which is my music company. I’m a chiropractor. I’m one of the wellness guys, so I’m with the podcast network The Wellness Catch. I speak around Australia non-stop on food and nutrition, lifestyle, stress, and all of the above.

Guy:

Yeah, right. I actually found out last night, mate, and I had no idea about this, but you were actually a bit of a New Zealand TV celebrity at one stage, as well. Is that the case?

Damian:

[00:05:00] Those were the days. That’s when I had hair. That was amazing. That was good fun, actually. I filmed a TV show while I was over in New Zealand that highlighted healthy living, and what people would call today paleo were the principles that I shared with people back then. Before paleo word was trendy, I was just sharing with people, “This is how you do good health.” That got a brand name. Now it’s called paleo. The TV show was called Downsize Me. For three and a bit years, we helped over 50 people lose more than 3 tons of weight.

Guy:

Wow. That’s incredible. Just for our listeners as well, we always like to get a bit of background and a little bit of depth to whoever we bring on the show. Where are you from originally, and what led you into this whole world of health? You’re an extremely qualified guy, with all these different qualifications. There’s got to be a sheer passion there to go out and actually study and get all that, because it’s bloody hard work doing all that. Can you fill us in a bit?

Damian:

[00:06:00] Yeah. I grew up in very humble beginnings. I grew up in a really poor neighborhood in a suburb in Melbourne called Dandenong. Dandenong is a really low socioeconomic area. At that time, we were 33 Ks from the city. We didn’t know that many other suburbs were in between, because we just didn’t travel. We used to have bread delivered to our house in a garbage bag by the St. Vincent de Paul. They would bring it to us, and we’d scrummage. We’d go to the bottom of the bag and see whether or not we could find ourselves a cheese roll, or a cheese and bacon roll. Even if it was 2 or 3 days, we’d whack it into a microwave, and that would make it fresh. That was my nutritional starting. That’s where it began.

This is Guy Lawrence on 180 nutrition and welcome to this week's episode of the health sessions. Where of course we cut through the confusion by connecting with leading global health and wellness expert to share the best or the latest science and thinking, empowering people to turn their health and lives around. This week we are doing it with the lovely Darya Rose of the Summer Tomato. She has a PhD in neuroscience and she is also the author of a book called Foodist. We get Darya on the show today to share a little bit about her journey and she talks about how she had this relationship with chronic dieting in her teens and early twenties and how she was always on some sort of diet. Then she'll discuss these steps she took to then turn it around and now she's on inspiring others to do the same thing. Especially those people that have similar relationships with food and dieting as well.

[00:01:00] It makes for a fascinating conversation, and I really enjoyed chatting to Darya today. We'll also get onto the topic of Vipassana, which is something I'm very curious about as well. I haven't done it yet but if you are unsure what that is, we are going to a great depth but essentially it's where you become silent for ten days. Which in this day and age is no easy feat I can assure you. I'm very much looking forward to get on with the show.

[00:02:00] Just to give you a heads up as well. By the time this goes live, I'm going to be very close to going to the Wim Hof iceman retreat in Melbourne. I'm very excited, I've been prepping myself for the last few months if you you've been following me on social media. That's explains why I've been getting nice bags and doing some crazy breath work as well. I will be covering it all on Snapchat for the five days I'm down there with Wim. If you want to see it behind the scenes and what it looks like and what I'm up to with Wim Hof and I think about forty nine other people, just hit me up on Snapchat. My username is GuyL180.

If you have any questions, please throw them at me because I'm sure it's going to be a lot of fun and very interesting as well. The last thing, if you are enjoying our show on iTunes, all we ask you is that you subscribe to it, five star it and leave a review if you are enjoying it. Of course an honest review is always welcome. This just helps us make these episodes help reach other people so they can get the same information, as you are right now listening to these shows. Let's go over to Darya Rose, enjoy. Hi, this is Guy Lawrence, I'm joined by Stuart Cook as always, hi Stu.

Stu:

Hello mate, how are you?

Guy:

Our lovely guest today is Darya Rose. Darya, welcome to the show.

Darya:

We appreciate you coming on Darya. I know the first question I've been asking everyone lately is if a complete stranger stopped you in the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Darya:

I practice this one all the time because I never know what to say because there is a like dumb answer and then there is a different dumb answer. Lately I've been telling I'm a health Jedi.

Do you struggle to make meditation a daily practice? I know I did for many years. This podcast episode is to help inspire those who want to make meditation more of a practice for themselves.

For the past 18 months, meditation has become an important part of my life, but before that it eluded me for years, even though I felt like I wanted to do it. If that sounds familiar, then it is my wish that the 5 key factors I talk about will help you get meditation momentum like it did for me :)

If you enjoy this special episode or have any questions on the topic of meditation, come and hit me up on Snapchat: GuyL180

Trevor, welcome to the show.

Trevor:

Thanks Guy, good to be here mate.

Guy:

I appreciate it. The first question I have been asking everyone recently on our podcast is if a complete stranger came up to you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Trevor:
[00:03:00] That is a really funny one to ask me because all my family and my friends often laugh about this because I have trouble answering it. The reason being what I do is I explain it differently every time. I help people release their baggage and get out of that unconscious stream and [inaudible 00:03:11] and that sort of troublesome place where it is us against the world and we better compete and fight for everything.

I help people get out of that and into their flow, where their natural state is, where their natural being is and to be really able to appreciate life in every moment, rather than being on this timeline thing where the beauty is in the future, it's not right here now. That is what I do and I don't know how to explain it. I try and help ... I am helping people create more space in themselves, so maybe I am a space man? It is kind of like ... I often say holistic life coach.

Guy:

[00:04:00] Fantastic, fantastic. I appreciate it could have been a tough one actually. For all our listeners as well, because I am fully aware that I think over 30% of our listeners are actually worldwide, they are not from Australia so they might not be familiar with your past and your achievements and what you have done. Would you mind just taking us a little back to the beginning and sort of bring us up to speed. Not only were you an amazing Iron Man, I heard the other day as well that you actually spent a fair bit of time travelling, as a kid, with your family as well and I was fascinated by all that. Could you kind of fill us in a little bit so people get a feel for your background, Trevor?

Trevor:

Sure. I was born in Melbourne, Victoria and my dad was pretty brave. He came home one day when I was about three years old and said to my mum, "Look, I've worked out what I want to do, I want to pack up, sell the house and everything. I want to travel around Australia for a couple of years. I am hearing that everybody else is traveling around the world and seeing the world, but no one is seeing our own country."

[00:05:00] He wanted to give us that experience and he had, I think, an itchy feeling that he had the house and the wife and the kids and the picket fence and a couple of pets and I think he thought that that was not probably everything that he wanted, that there must have been something more. He had the perfect job and couple of qualifications. He was a builder and a mechanic and stuff like that, which is the perfect set up really because then what he did then was we sold the house, we traveled around Australia for two years from when I was 3 to 5 and my sister [inaudible 00:05:27] age, I was being role modeled by a father who was willing to go outside the status quo to give his family something that he just sensed there was something more.

Hi, this is Guy Lawrence, I’m joined by Stuart Cooke

Stu:

Hello mate.

Guy:

Our lovely guest today is Crystal Fieldhouse. Crystal, welcome to the podcast.

Crystal:

Thank you so much for having me on guys.

Guy: Look, it’s going to be a fantastic topic. We’re very excited to learn a few tips from you that’s for sure. The first question I’ll ask you is if you were in a bus stop and a complete stranger come up to you and say, “Oh, what do you do?” What would you say?

Crystal: What I do? I make my own skin care products. We make beautiful skin care for people with dry and sensitive skin, and we especially love helping people with eczema and dermatitis, so they’re really a problem skin.

Guy:

Perfect. I always love to start with that question just to give people a bit of a wrap around. Take us on your journey a little bit if you mind Crystal, because I saw you speak, we spoke together at Tasmania a couple of years back and I know there’s a whole history behind everything, what’s brought you up today and actually created Ecology Skin Care. Would you mind taking us back from the beginning and filling everyone in about yourself and your own journey?

Crystal:

Yes, I’d love to. I’m a Kiwi living in Australia. We live down on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. I’m into good food and healthy living which is why we shared a stage. My husband and I, we started eating to a paleo whole food type template around five years ago now. I also find anything to do with the mind and psychology totally fascinating. I’m a big nerd. I studied neuroscience at uni so it’s followed me through. I worked in the gym industry and the pharmaceutical industry for many years, and now I have my own skin care brand, Ecology Skin Care.

Guy:

What sparked that into the skin care in the first place?

Hey, this is Guy Lawrence from 180 Nutrition and welcome to today's health session, where we cut through the confusion by connecting by leading global health and wellness experts to share the best and the latest science and thinking, empowering people to turn their health and lives around. We're doing it this week with the awesome Jason Wachob. He is the founder and CEO of mindbodygreen. If you're not familiar, they are a health and wellness company, media company, that is, and they now have I think over 12 million hits a month. They're big in the industry, they've influenced my life and they've influenced many people's lives around the globe with their message. It was fantastic to have Jason on today. We get into lots of topics, we discuss his new book, Wellth: How I Learned to Build a Life, Not a Résumé. We also dive into his own personal journey, meditation, breath work, and how he actually manages as an entrepreneur with so many situations going on, keep everything and his health in check and all the rest of it. I thoroughly enjoyed today's interview. He's a top guy, and there's lots of wisdom for sure in this podcast, no doubt. If you're on Snapchat, I actually joined a couple of weeks ago, come and say hi. Just look at the user name GuyL180. That's my user name. Come and check it out, say hi. Always great to meet like-minded people. I share behind the scenes of what I'm doing, even with these podcasts, how I'm filming, what's in my day as well. I'm enjoying this so far, it's a lot of fun. Anyway, let's go over to Jason. Enjoy.

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

Stu: Hello, mate.

Guy: Our awesome guest today is Jason Wachob. Jason, welcome to the show.

Jason: Thanks for having me, guys. Guy: I really appreciate it. Jason, just to start the conversation. If you were sitting on an airplane and a complete stranger sat next to you and said, "Hi, what do you for a living?" How would you answer that?

Jason: Wow. I would say I run a health and wellness media company called mindbodygreen.

Guy: Perfect. My next question would be to you is just to get familiar with our listeners as well, is what is mind, body, and green, and what inspired you to start it in the first place, because it's obviously a big mission. Jason: Sure. I'll start with the story. I'm 6'7". I played basketball college a long time ago, I'm 41 now. Back then, this was 1998, there were no startups, guys like me either ... if they had grades, maybe they went to law school. If they had an aptitude for science and wanted to help people, they went to med school. Or if they had none of the above, they went to Wall Street, so I became a trader. Largely because I grew up with no money and always wanted money. I saw money as freedom, I saw money as something that I could pay off my college debt ... and so I went on to Wall Street and was able to do well enough to pay off my debt, bought my mother a car, probably a little freedom.

While that was happening, at the same time, finally I reached this financial success and it was the worst month of my life because a relationship was falling apart. Very sharp contrast, here all I want is money, and I'm miserable. I saw really quickly that money did not buy happiness. 9/11 happened a little after that here in America. It really changed my perspective and it sort of led me down this entrepreneurial path. Fast forward to about 7 or 8 years ago, I was running a startup, doing a lot of flying.

I flew almost 150,000 miles domestic in a year. 6'7" me, coach seat. Do the math, not so great. It turned out that I had an old basketball that was exacerbated by all the flying and stress. I was stressed in my mind at the time. I had two extruded discs pressing on my sciatic nerve, L4, L5, S1. My right leg was like a lightning rod. I could not walk, it was terrible. I went to a doctor, he said, "You need surgery. It's not negotiable." I don't think surgery's necessarily a bad thing, but it's just something I wanted to avoid. I sought a second opinion, and he said the same thing. Then it was almost like an afterthought, he said, "You know, maybe some yoga or therapy might help." I was like, "Okay, I'll give this yoga thing a shot." I started doing some really light yoga in the morning, in the evening, like 10-15 minutes. I started to feel better over the course of a few weeks, and over the course of a few months, I completely healed, so I never got surgery.

It was like, "Holy cow!" This started to get me down this path and I started to look at things like stress and the mind and nutrition and the environment and all these things played a role in health, and I was like, "Holy cow, everyone's got health wrong." It's not about just vanity and weight loss, it's this lifestyle. Mind, body, green. That's how I got the idea for mindbodygreen quite literally, so that's how it all started.

Welcome to today's health sessions and of course, where we're cutting through all the confusion by connecting with leading global health and wellness experts to share the best of the latest science and thinking and powering people to turn their health and lives around. Today's guest, we are doing it with Mr. Kelly Starrett.

I have no doubt there'll be listeners today that are familiar with Kelly, especially if you've been doing crossfit for a long time, but for you guys that might not be familiar with Kelly Starrett, he is the founder of Mobility WOD which is designed to help you hack your body's mechanics and provides the tools to preform basic maintenance on yourself, which I think we could all do and be a part of. I believe Kelly is one of the greatest innovators to connect movement with function today.

If you're not an athlete listening to this, there's heaps of wisdom in there so stick with it, and of course if you are a high end athlete, there'll be definitely things to make you reconsider how you train effectively and how you look after and condition the body accordingly as well. We get into also topics, we talk about his new book of course, Deskbound, which is in the mail for me as we speak. If there's one thing that bugs the shit out of me is the fact that I have to sit often so I'm constantly mixing it up, so he has some great wisdom on that for us today.

We also even get into Wim Hof and ice baths and even icing injuries, should we, shouldn't we, and so forth. It goes off in all directions but we made sure there's lots of [pills 00:01:39] of questions to get the most out of Kelly's experience and wisdom as he is a wealth of knowledge. I must say as well, Kelly, he's a big open guy, he's a real deal, he's full of life and he generally wants to make a difference in this world which is fantastic. It was great to have him on and I have no doubt you're going to enjoy today's podcast. One last thing, I've joined the world of Snapchat, believe it or not, yes, I know, but come and say hi on...

Snapchat to me, my username is GuyL180.

If you're on Snapchat, you're listening to this, come and hit me up, send me a message, ask me a question, I don't care. It'd just be good to reach out to you. Let's go over to Kelly Starrett, enjoy.

Hi, this is Guy Lawrence, I'm joined with Stuart Cook as always, Hi Stu. Stu:Hello, mate. Guy:Our awesome guest today is Kelly Starrett. Kelly, welcome to the show.

Kelly:Guys, thanks for having me.

Guy:Really appreciate it, mate. Now, I got a sneaking suspicion with our listeners, they'll be a split crew. 50% will know exactly who you are, what you do, and I reckon we'll be introducing you to a lot of new listeners which is excellent, we think. You've created an amazing community online over the years, through Mobility WOD. You've written three books, the third one's just coming out, is that correct?

Kelly:That's true. Guy:My first question is to you, can you take us on Kelly Starrett's journey a little bit from how it all began, how it all became to get into this point today, really, for the people that may be not familiar?

About Episode:

Welcome to today's Health Sessions where we cut through the confusion by connecting with leading global health and wellness experts, to share the best with the latest science in thinking, empowering people to turn their health and lives around. We're doing it this week with the lovely Linda Graparic. I'm allowed to say she's lovely because she's actually my fiance, so this is a very exciting episode for me to bring Linda into the forefront on the podcast. She is a wealth of knowledge and I can say that because I see single-handedly what she does. She's been a huge influence on my own personal life and the way I certainly think about health and how the body operates as well. She's a qualified naturopath and nutritionist.  

Actually, I've been pushing to get her on the podcast for a while and she's finally accepted. It's all been my idea to do this. We get into the topic today of constipation and gut health. Constipation is a little bit of a topic that I guess doesn't get talked about much but it is a vital part of the body human mechanisms and how we operate on a daily basis and the effect of not going to the toilet on a regular basis, what that can actually do to us. And of course gut health, which we've covered a bit in the past on the podcast and how these two interline. What fascinates me as well is, I pride myself on health ... We're doing these podcasts, we're meeting all of these amazing people and we're getting all this content out to you guys. 

One thing I do is have a stool test done once in a while and I had one done, literally, about three months ago and it came back really poorly, the results. I was really shocked. It's like, "What the hell?" I'm doing all these things right and I'm still susceptible to these things." Bacteria is an interesting thing. Parasites is an interesting thing. You can contract them from anywhere and they do affect you and they affect your body. My first tell-tale signs were my joints were starting to ache when I was at the gym and I'm like, "Something is not right." I had it tested and Lynda's been guiding me now, for the last three months, in overcoming this. Already, I'm feeling much better. I can feel my energy is increasing. I'm sleeping better.

I just want to put out there, if you're proactive, these are things definitely worth thinking about and we cover so many words of wisdom today. Strap yourself in. This is an awesome podcast, even if I'm bias by saying that. I have no doubt you're going to get a lot out of it. I just want to touch on a couple of things as well. First of all, I've moved to Snapchat. I'm still trying to figure out what the hell it is but if you are on Snapchat, hit me up, ask me questions, reach out to me. My user name is guyl180. If you're on Snapchat, come and say hi. I just wanted to mention as well that our podcasts are shot in video as well. It is only in Skype format but ultimately we transcribe them as well so they can be read.

All the links are there for the resources and of course you get to see our pretty faces for an hour if you feel like sitting down, if you're not out and about walking. They're worth checking out and if you want to keep up to the latest, simply just subscribe to our email, where we bring content to you every week. Ninety-five percent of the content we actually put out and do is ... Everything we do, ninety-five percent of it is free.

Now if you are not familiar with doctor Michael Mosley, he's a British television journalist, producer and presenter who has worked for the BBC for many, many years. He's probably best known as a presenter of television programs on biology of medicine, and has regular appearances on The One Show. More recently he's been well known for the 5:2 diet which is regarding intermittent fasting and its relationship to help turning diabetes around on pre-diabetics.

More recently as well he's just released a book called the 8 Week Blood Sugar Diet which again is a about calorie restriction and reversing diabetes. Now, we get into all sorts of topics today. Whether you are diabetic or not, it doesn't matter. There's nuggets of information right throughout the broadcast. If you do know people that might potentially be diabetic, or pre-diabetic, then it's certainly a podcast you should want to share with them, to help educate people to make better and informed choices.

Because he really shares some interesting discoveries along his way that he's found over the years, and being a journalist he's a prolific researcher, and he goes into his own journey today as well, because Michael himself was diagnosed pre-diabetic. I think it was back in 2012, and of course being a doctor and on TV show, it came as a bit of a shock to him. He started looking at it and hence why these books have come out and his own experiments. He talks about how he's incorporated into his life as well. His interesting thoughts around exercise as well and how sometimes less is more, and the things he does just to maintain his health and how his thoughts around the diet and the food we eat has changed a lot of over the years. I know he will be actually preaching to the converted, or to a lot of our listeners on the regular podcast.

Sit back, I've no doubt you are going to thoroughly enjoy this episode with Michael Mosley today. Of course if you are enjoying our episodes, just subscribe them, and hit the 5 star on iTunes. That helps with rankings and of course leave a comment as well if you like, always great to hear from you, but drop us an email as well. Tell us how these podcasts are affecting you, and if there's anything that you are learning from it, we love hearing from you guys. It really helps us knowing that we are reaching many people, actually bringing up this information and empower themselves, to change their own lives and turn them around which is fantastic. Anyway, I'm going to stop talking now. Let’s go back to my doctor Michael Mosley.

Hi this Guy at 180 Nutrition and welcome today’s health sessions where we are cutting through the confusion by connecting with leading global health and wellness experts to share the best of the latest science and thinking empowering people to turn their health and lives around. This week we’re doing it with Ocean Robbins. He was fantastic today and he is a ball of energy. Now, if you’re not familiar with who Ocean is, his grandfather was Irvine Robbins who was the founder of Baskin and Robbins ice cream company in America. Yes, a little ice cream company you might have heard of. His father ended up walking away from the whole empire in his 20′s and felt like he wanted to do more good in the world and ended up writing a best selling book called The Food Revolution. Now Ocean then, has come along and co-founded The Food Revolution Network which I think he said started in 2012. Where they’re looking at pretty much what the hell is going on in our food chain and food supply globally. Looking at the politics from the side view as well. 

Amazing topic today, Ocean shares so much of his wisdom. We talk about obviously the food revolution. What is it? What’s going on? We discuss GMOs, organics. What’s happening to our food supply. Corporate interests. What I loved about Ocean today, he really broke it down and kept it onto a level that will relate to us all. I don’t know about you, but for me personally we can feel so disconnected from the bigger political things that are going on in the world. Ocean really gets it across fantastic today, so I have no doubt you’re going to get a lot out of this podcast. 

Now, I always ask for a review every week, and I’m going to do so again. There’s been some fantastic reviews coming in on the show of lately on iTunes. If you could take two minutes to leave us a review. Let us know how these podcasts are helping you. Where you listen to them too? Obviously give us some honest feedback as well. We greatly appreciate every single one. We read them all. Yeah, it’s just going to help us get this word out there, and continue to empower people to make their own decisions with their lives moving forward and make better health choices. Awesome. Let’s go over Ocean Robbins. Enjoy. Okay cool. Hi this is Guy Lawrence. I’m joined with Stuart Cook as always. Hi Stuart.

Stu:Hello mate.

Guy:Our awesome guest today is Ocean Robbins. Ocean, welcome to the show.

Ocean:Well thanks so much. My pleasure to be with you.

Guy:Yeah this is fantastic. What I thought Ocean, I’d start with a small detail first. If someone stopped you on the street, a complete stranger, and asked you, “What do you do?” what would you say?

Ocean:Oh my goodness. I would say that I have the best job in the world, which is, I get to help people be healthy. I get to help people say goodbye to some of their aches and pains, and excess pounds. To step into a healthier life. A life where our food choices become an expansion of our values and what really want for our lives and our future. I get to help people break free from suffering and a toxic food culture and step into the life that they want and deserve. I do that through running the Food Revolution Network, which is an online community of 250,000 members working globally for a real food revolution in our own personal lives and on our planet.

Guy:Yeah, amazing, amazing. That’s such a community Ocean. For our listeners, we always kick off the show about the discussing the journey, the background a little bit. I would love to hear a little bit about your own personal journey, your family story, and everything that’s kind of fueling this revolution that you’re doing today. Would you mind sort of taking us through it all?

Ocean:Absolutely. My grandfather founded an ice cream company. It was called Baskin-Robbins, 31 flavors. My dad grew up with an ice cream cone shaped swimming pool in the back yard, and 31 flavors of ice cream in the freezer. He was being groomed to one day join and running the family company, but when he was offered that chance in his early 20s he said, no. He walked away from huge amounts of fame and fortune, because he wanted to follow his own rocky road. He actually ended up becoming a best selling author on food and health issues. He ended up speaking out, the media called him the rebel without a cone. Low and behold, his books became best sellers. 

My own grandfather, his dad, ended up kind of on death’s door being handed a copy of my dad’s books by his doctors. Told, “Mr. Robbins if you want to live, I recommend you read this.” He did, turned his life around, lost 30 pounds, got off all of 7his high blood pressure and diabetes medications, golf game improved seven strokes, added another 20 more healthy years to his life. We’ve seen in our own family the incredible power that food choices can have to harm and to heal. My dad continued as a best selling author, speaking, organizing for a food revolution for decades. I, when I was 16 inspired by his example, founded a non-profit organization and worked with young leaders all over the planet for peace and justice and human rights, and sustainability. 

I work with leaders in over 65 countries. As I traveled the globe and work with people for 20 years directing the non profit, I saw that everybody eats, and that what we eat is having this huge impact. That the American sort of diet, the KFC’s and McDonald’s, and Coca Cola’s. The ways of growing food with all the pesticides and GMOs, all this is being exported around the world. As people give up their traditional ways of life, and their traditional ways of eating, their waistlines are expanding, their medical bills are going up, they’re getting more sick, they’re getting, quite frankly, more [inaudible 00:05:32]. I love being an American but an industry guard. I want to send out a warning to the world. Like we know where this path goes, right? We spend 19% of our gross domestic product on disease treatment in my country. A third of our kids expect to get diabetes and two-thirds of our population is overweight or obese.

Guy:That’s huge.

I love this interview with Lee Holmes. She tells us about her battle with an autoimmune disease and how she overcame it. On diagnosis, the doctors heavily prescribed her pharmaceutical drugs and told her that nutrition played no part in her recovery (while she was fed stale white bread in hospital as part of her diet!).

About Lee Holmes: She is an holistic nutritionist, a qualified wholefoods chef and wellness coach. She is also the founder of Supercharged Food, which is a website that stemmed from a need to share easy and simple recipes after being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease; fibromyalgia and changing her diet to help improve her symptoms.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • Please share your journey and history with your autoimmune disease.
  • What led you to investigate nutrition as a healing protocol and use food as medicine?
  • What were the foods/food groups that you eliminated as part of your healing process?
  • We’d love to talk about your Ayurvedic journey…  first up – what is Ayurveda?
  • If someone suspects their gut is not healthy, what three tips would you give them to start their own healing journey?
  • And much much more…

welcome to this week's health sessions, where we cut through the confusion by connecting with leading global health and well experts to share the best of the latest science and thinking empowering people to turn their health and lives around. We're doing it this week with our fantastic guest Lee Holmes, who is the co-founder of Supercharged Food. She has an amazing story to tell. She was diagnosed with an autoim-, get my words out, autoimmune disease probably, I think it was 5 or 6 years ago. When she went to the doctors they wanted to prescribe her medication, and told her that she could potentially go on it for the rest of her life. She had a big wake-up call and decided to take the more holistic route, and 5 to 6 years on she has been doing fantastically well and has been spreading the word of healthy nutrition, gut health, et cetera. 

We tap into Lee's wisdom today, if you like, on Ayurvedic journey as well, which was very fascinating in how that can apply to us, and the steps she took to also heal her own gut where she believes, and I believe too, that most of our health issues can come from as well. She also shares some great tips for anyone starting out on their own gut health journey ... So how we can apply it into our today's lives. So lots of great content in there, and I have no doubt you're going to get a huge amount out of this. As always, as well, I'm going to ask if you wouldn't mind leaving a review, subscribing to us and hitting the 5 star. Super important on iTunes, it basically helps us bring all this message on wellness to millions as we've made it our mission to turning lives around. And if you're really enjoying the podcast and you do get something out of it, I'd be greatly appreciative. You just take 30 seconds to do that for us, and that will help reach other people too. So let's go over to Lee Holmes, enjoy the episode. Thank you.

Do you know someone taking statin drugs or has concerns regarding their cholesterol? If so then this interview is a must!

Our awesome guest this week is Justin Smith.  He's the man behind the documentaries Statin Nation and Statin Nation II which are documentary films about cholesterol and cholesterol lowering medications.

Have we got it all wrong? In the short video above we discuss the major concerns of having your cholesterol too low and the health risks that go with it.

More than 40 million people around the world are currently taking medications to lower their cholesterol level. But an increasing number of doctors and researchers are questioning the supposed link between cholesterol and heart disease.

29 billion dollars is a conservative estimate of the current value of the cholesterol-lowering industry.

Learn More about 180 Nutrition: http://180nutrition.com.au/about-us/

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What advice would you give to anyone who is currently taking statin drugs?
  • In your opinion what really causes heart disease?
  • What are the most common side-effects of statin drugs?
  • Could we really be so wrong when it comes to cholesterol and heart disease?
  • How does the Director of Statin Nation eat?
  • And much much more...

Our awesome guest today is Justin Smith, Justin welcome to the show. Justin: Thank you very much, great to be here.

Guy: Mate I just realized this morning that you are our fourth documentary maker to come on the show. They’ve always said the same thing like when they started out they had this great idea and they went boy, that’s a lot of hard work. My first question to you is just for our listeners who might not be familiar, what led you in the first place to actually think about starting to make a documentary?

Justin: Well it was a surprise to me, because a number of years ago if someone said you’ll end up making documentary films I would have said, oh you are [00:03:00] crazy, that’s never going to happen. I got into this through the issue really

because I was working a number of years ago as a personal trainer and nutrition coach. Through my own independent research, I became aware of the cholesterol myths, and all the myths associated with the fact that
we … Well we are told that we all need a low fat diet. I just found out when working with clients that didn’t work for a huge number of clients, so that prompted me to do my own research into it.

I came across … There is a doctrine in Sweden many people would already be aware of. Doctor [inaudible 00:03:28] and he of the classic [inaudible 00:03:48].

Guy: Sorry Justin, it’s breaking up a little bit.

Justin: Okay, so after reading [inaudible 00:03:55] Scott’s book, then eventually I [00:04:00] kept on doing my own … More of my own independent research, and that

led to me self publishing my own book about cholesterol. After publishing the book I was still very frustrated, because I wanted to get the information out to a lot more people, and they came up with the idea of making a documentary film. They had to contact some of the key researchers in that field, and I was actually relay surprised they all said yes, most of them said yes, and eventually got the first documentary together Statin Nation. That was really well received, so I went on then to make Statin Nation 2.

Guy: Statin Nation came out 2012, is that correct?

Justin: Yes, at the end of 2012 it was released online and then the DVD was available early 2013.

Guy: Yeah right yeah.
Justin: Then Statin Nation 2 was released in March 2015.

[00:05:00]
Stu: I got a story to share as well Justin, so I remember first stumbling upon

Statin Nation on the internet somewhere, and I ordered a copy of the DVD and saw it, and thought wow this is like radical stuff and really, really inspiring and thought provoking. Then because I live in Sydney and my parents are in the UK, and then I had a phone call with my parents, my mom and dad, and I said to my dad how are you doing? He said I’m okay, and there is my mom in the background, and she said tell him about the pills you are on, and I said, oh, well so tell me about these pills. He said, oh I have just been put on some medication to help because my cholesterol is really high.

He said I’m not feeling very well, he said my legs are really aching and I get

really, really tired, and I just don’t feel myself. I asked him what the name [00:06:00] of the pills were, and I did little bit of research and realized that they were Statin drug, and was shocked especially after watching the movie. I ordered a copy of the movie, and sent it to his house in the UK, and I said I want you to watch this and then I want you to give this to your doctor. He watched and he said, oh God I can’t believe this is just … This is crazy stuff. He did exactly that, he gave it to his doctor as well and his doctor watched it, and his doctor took my dad off the pills and said, I need to do some more research. Subsequently from this point forward like he’s been fine and all of the side effects that he was experiencing have disappeared.

Really, really thought provoking and just great to be able to point somebody to an independent impartial source to say, “Look, I’ve found this stuff, but you relay need to watch this and make up your own opinions,” so thanks so much for making the movie, it was excellent.

Dr Bruce Lipton: At Last, Scientific Proof of How Our Thoughts Can Make Us Healthy or Sick

“When you find yourself on a vicious cycle, for goodness sakes, stop peddling!” — Swami Beyondananda”
― Bruce H. Lipton, Cell Bilogist & Best Selling Author

 

Have you wondered how much our thoughts can determine our overall health? Does living in the states of love and happiness versus fear and anxiety impact us long term? This episode dives deep into how or our thoughts, beliefs and perceptions can directly affect our health.

Our awesome guest this week is Dr Bruce Lipton.  If you're not familiar with his work, then you would definitely in for an eye opening treat. He is internationally recognized leader in bridging Science and spirit together. He's a stem cell biologist, best selling author of the Biology of Belief and he has been a guest speaker on hundreds of TV and radio shows as well as keynote presenters from national and international conferences all around the world.

I actually think it's probably one of the most important podcasts we have recorded to date. So sit back and enjoy the full interview with Dr Bruce Lipton. 

Some of his best selling books include - The Biology of Belief, Spontaneous Evolution and The Honeymoon Effect.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What is the biology of belief?
  • Is it true that 95% of our day is run by subconscious programing of our past?
  • How do we change the programing?
  • Are we a victim of our genetics?
  • How can we change our beliefs and perceptions?
  • What is 'super' learning?
  • And much much more...

Bruce: I am so happy to be here with you guys because you guys are putting out the word about how we can move into this world peaceably, happily and moving to the future. Thank you for this opportunity and also I want to thank you for letting me speak to your community because we have some wonderful things to talk about for self empowerment.

Guy: Oh, a hundred percent, a hundred percent. You know it's interesting and I have to ask you this question, because when people ask me how do you describe Bruce's work, I go, "Oh." You know, and I really have to think about it. My first question will be to you, if you are on an airplane and a complete stranger sat next to you and then asked you what did you do for a living, what would you say?

Bruce: I help people empower themselves to take back their control of their lives and to realize that they're not victims of forces outside of their control that they're actual masters of their lives. Since the lack of a certain amount of knowledge, they're not being able to effectively control themselves. You know, it's interesting there's a phrase called "knowledge is power" and yet there's a corollary that's very, it's much more relevant and that is "a lack of knowledge is a lack of power." We are powerless not because we're not powerful but we are powerless because of the programming and knowledge that we have received is actually disempowering for us as individuals.

Hey, this is Guy Lawrence from 180 nutrition and welcome to this week’s episode of “The Health Sessions.”

We welcome back today Michele Chevalley Hedge on the podcast and if you aren’t familiar with Michele and didn’t hear her podcast last year she is a nutritional medicine practitioner. She’s also author of “Beating Sugar Addictions for Dummies.” She’s been a contributor to the Huffington Post, Good Health Magazine, Women’s Fitness, The Sunday Telegraph, The Morning Herald, ABC Radio and Sunrise Channel Seven Weekend Breakfast Show to name a few. It’s actually much bigger than that.

She has a wealth of experience and we are very happy to get her back on the show today where we delve into the topic of hormones. Hormones we feel are a massive contributor to one’s health and how do we knock our hormones out of luck, how can we bring the back in, what influences it, what roles they play in the body.

Thyroids is a common issue, adrenals, cortisols, the list goes on, leptin, serotonin, melatonin. I’m just recapping the interview today but it was an awesome interview.

She shed so much light on the subject and if you are one of those people that is delving into health but are still trying to figure out getting a better night’s sleep, dropping a few kilos of weight and you doing things but still getting frustrated then this is definitely an area we encourage you to look at and as we share the strategies with you and tap into Michele’s wealth of experience today I have no doubt you are going to enjoy this episode.

If you do please leave us a review on iTunes, iAsk. It’s very simple to do, if you can hit the five stars, subscribe to our podcast and also leave the review that will help our rankings. More people can find us and tap into this great information that we love to put out there and share with you guys.

If you are struggling, most people have to do it from the phone. iTunes can be a little bit fiddly but when you open up the podcast app don’t go to your saved [00:02:00] episodes of 180, actually go to the search field, type in 180 nutrition, bring it up from there and then there’s a button where you can say write a review.

It takes two minutes to do and just tell us what’s been helping you, how you listen to the podcasts. We really truly love getting the feedback and love hearing from you guys and it’s more fugal to keep this out there because we’re reaching a lot of people and it’s definitely changing lives which is fantastic. Include the analysis as well.

Anyway let’s go over to Michelle and enjoy the show, cheers.

Stu:Let’s do it.

Guy:All right. His, this is Guy Lawrence, I’m joined with Stuart Cook as always, hi Stu?

Stu:Hello mate.

Guy:And our lovely guest today Michele Chevalley Hedge, Michele welcome back to the show.

Michele:Hello Stu, hello Guy, hello everybody out here.

Guy:Great to have you back Michele, obviously we were just offline talking about the podcast and we’re picking up more and more listeners every week, new listeners so I’m pretty sure they’ll be a lot of guys out there that happened to hear the previous podcast when you came in last year. Can you just describe for everyone a little bit about yourself, what you do and why we’re super excited to have you back in the show?

Michele:Sure, thank you. Thank you for having me back. I’m a qualified nutritionist and sometimes some of the well-known health editors or even doing a little bit of television will introduce me as Michele Chevalley Hedge, the modern day nutritionist, the nutritionist that likes a little bit of coffee and a little bit of wine and that initially made me very upset. I was like, “Oh no,” and then it really made me real.

That’s a really big part of our philosophy at A Healthy View, my practice, is that we are qualified nutritionists but we really understand real busy people and we like to have a non-extreme approach.

So besides having a busy practice [00:04:00] we also write for many different publications, The Huffington Post, Body and Soul, I wrote a book last year called “Beating Sugar Addictions for Dummies.” Wiley publishing out of New York City commissioned me to write that and I said, “Why ask me to write this? Why aren’t you asking Sarah Wilson and David Gillespie?”

I said, “They’re fantastic in these spaces,” which they are and they said, “Michele the reality is you’re a qualified nutritionist who has been talking about sugar way before sugar was sexy.” That was a lot of fun to write.

We ran programs, we ran retreats, do lots of corporate presenting, do lots of school presenting and so our specialty, our area of specialty is always been talking about sugar but we treat patients for all sorts of reasons, from hormonal dysfunction to weight to ADHD to cognitive dysfunction.

I’m very big in the area of mental health and nutrition. I’ve been speaking a lot on that. Last year I spoke with the Dalai Lama “Happiness and Its Causes,” vitality, energy and serotonin which I want to talk about today.

Guy:Great. Thanks Michele.

Stu:Michele you mentioned hormones as well and that’s the topic that we really want to cover today because a lot of people aren’t aware that their hormones could be holding them back where health is concerned and it can be a culprit in weight loss, weight gain, fatigue, sleep issues, autoimmunity. I wondered if you could just tell us about our hormones. Our listeners right now, what are they and why do we need to support them as we grow older?

Michele:I was so [inaudible 00:05:43] when I got your email to have this podcast and to specialize and talk about hormones because it’s an area of great interest to me.

I’m writing a book about resetting your hormones. [00:06:00] I’m thinking about the tittle could be “It Could Be Your Hormones: Weight, Sleep, Autoimmune.”

Hormones are the special chemical messengers in our body that are incredibly powerful and they affect everything that we do. They affect our sleep, they affect our weight, they affect our energy levels, they affect our autoimmune system, they affect our moods, emotions.

Just on a funny note any woman who has premenstrual tension or any newly pregnant woman who will have hormones firing around their body or any woman going into menopause will immediately know the power of hormones.

I laugh about those things and try to make jokes about them but hormones are incredibly powerful. But some of the ones that we would know even if you’re not in the world of nutritional wellness, things like cortisol, things like insulin, things like leptin, things like melatonin, progesterone, these are all hormones that we really need that for optimal health we need to be safeguarding these type of hormones and how they function in our body.

Guy:Fair enough, I was wondering like when you say [inaudible 00:07:22] what’s the general perception and awareness? You’re in the firing line, you see a lot of people in your practice and your talking. Are people that tuned in or aware about hormones and how they can govern the body from different things?

We see a lot of people inquiring about weight loss especially as you can imagine and they just assume it’s going to be hitting the gym, exercising, cutting up the calories and away we go but obviously it’s a much more complex issue than that.

Michele:I think Guy that that’s a great question. What I think is that as people tend to get [00:08:00] more into nutrition and wellness, they start to look beneath the surface a little bit of just food and start to think, “Wait a minute, what else could be possibly going on in my body?”

So we always say, “Let’s look beneath the surface. Let’s look at what’s happening with your thyroid hormones. Let’s look at what’s happening with your blood insulin hormones. Let’s look at what’s happening with your cortisol hormones.”

Can we Segway and just go into cortisol just for a moment?

Guy:Sure.

Michele:Great. Here’s the thing about cortisol, people will think that they possibly can be gaining weight from food and the reality is yes, poor food choices will lead to insulin dis-regulation, blood sugar dis-regulation insulin being one of our hormones we really want to safeguard.

What happens is people are thinking that that’s all about food and poor food choices. However stress and if we wake up in the morning and we are going and going and going and going and our adrenal glands are on fire, our adrenal glands pump out our cortisol, our cortisol pumps out glucose and this is a wonderful mechanism in the body.

Human nature is amazing because thousands of years ago the body was meant to see a saber tooth tiger, our adrenals were meant to go on fire, our cortisol was meant to pump, our glucose was meant to pump out, kill the saber tooth tiger, glucose goes down, cortisol goes down, adrenal goes back to resting and say, “Thank you very much.”

These days we pop out of bed, we go, “Make somebody breakfast, feed the dog, get to the gym, I better do this, I better do that [00:10:00], oh my goodness, I’ve got the 10:30 meeting,” so we’re going and we’re going and we’re going and we’re going all day long.

I’m not living in ivory tower because this is myself sometimes but I have a very big observation that what’s happening to people is they are creating excess glucose around their body all day long and creating insulin resistance just from stress.

Guy:I was just about to ask you that, can you create excess glucose and spike insulin just from stress?

Hey this Guy Lawrence from 180 Nutrition, and welcome to today’s health session. You’ll have to forgive me, it’s nearly 40 degrees Celsius in this room; it is hot. That’s okay, lets push on with the intro. Today’s guest is Ruth Anderson Horrel. She is an incredible athlete, as far as I’m concerned. She’s a Crossfit athlete, if you’re not familiar with her, and she’s been to the Crossfit world games three times. I can assure you now, that is a hell of an achievement. She has a wealth of experience when it comes to exercise, nutrition, and recovery, and I think the one intention was today, whether you’re into Crossfit or not, we really wanted to tap into Ruth’s experience, and wisdom, and hopefully get a few gems across to pick up for everyone, ’cause I think there’s certainly a theme that’s coming across in the podcast, and the way people approach their diet, whether they’re at the elite end of athleticism, or not. 

Whether you just move daily and just trying to drop a bit of weight, there’s always some fantastic lessons to be learned from some of the best people that we can get hold of, that’s for sure. The other thing I’d encourage to do as well, is actually follow Ruth on Instagram, and then you’ll start to see what I mean by what her athletic abilities are, and what she is capable of.

Now, I haven’t asked for a review for a while, but I will. We had a fantastic review on iTunes come in the other day. I always ask for them because they obviously help with the rankings, but other people read them as well, and it’ll encourage them to listen to the podcast, so if you’re getting great befits from listening to my podcast every week when we push them out, then it takes two minutes if you could leave a review. The one we had just the other day says, “my favorite podcast by far,” with 5 stars, that was very generous, by [chinlo 00:01:47]. “Thank you, Guy and Stu for hours of learning. My favorite thing to do is listen to your podcast while going for a nice, long walk. I’ve listened to most of them twice or more. I never tire of your fantastic hosting, A-grade guests, [00:02:00] and the wonderful insights your podcasts bring.” I thought that was absolutely wonderful, so thank you for that, and hence why I gave you a shout out.

We read them all. Tell us how you listen to our podcast. I’d be fascinated to hear because we’re in, I think over 50 countries now, getting downloaded anyway, which is really cool. All right. I’m going to stop blabbering. Let’s go over to Ruth Anderson Horrel. Enjoy.

Hi, this is Guy Lawrence. I’m joined with Stuart [Cooke 00:02:27]. Hi, Stu.

Stu:Hello, mate.

Guy:Good to see you. You’re looking well, mate.

Stu:As always.

Guy:Our lovely guest today is Ruth Anderson Horrel. Welcome, Ruth. 

Ruth:Hi, Guy.

Guy:I just realized, did I pronounce your last name correct?

Ruth:Yeah, that’s good. Yeah.

Guy:Okay. I always get confused slightly on that. You’re not the first guest, either. I have no doubt they’ll be two parties listening in on this podcast today. That’s going to be one that’s going to know [inaudible 00:02:55] is, and who you are and Crossfit fanatics, and then I think a big portion of our listeners, as well. They will have heard of Crossfit, but are not going to have any idea. I think hopefully we can, between us all, please both parties today. That’s our intention, anyway, and tap into some of your experience over the years, which we’re excited about.

Just to start and get the ball rolling, as always on our podcasts, can you just mind sharing a little bit about what you do, including Crossfit and outside of Crossfit as well? I know there’s a lot more to you than just going to Crossfit every day and training your heart out, really, isn’t it?

Ruth:Yeah, yeah. Well, that’s a big part of it. It’s a pretty big goal for the last few years has been competing at the Crossfit games and doing well there. In the meantime, on the Crossfit journey, I ended up opening a Crossfit gym about 5 years ago also. That’s been steadily growing and keeping us busy. That’s been a whole new experience for me, just learning how to run [00:04:00] that business. I also run a website, ruthless.co.nz, where we sell Crossfit equipment and accessories and things. That’s normally a few hours of my day, as well. Then I’m a small animal veterinarian and I’ve been doing that for 2 days a week for the last … I’ve been fairly part time, actually with it, probably for the last 3-4 years, so that I can focus on my training. Yeah.

Hey, this is Guy Lawrence from 180 Nutrition and welcome to today's health session. Our first guest for 2016 is Keegan Smith. I [inaudible 00:00:12] thoroughly enjoy this podcast today. I don't like talking up the guest too much; I like to leave the actual podcast interview to do the talking for us. I must say, Keegan has been a bit of an inspiration in my life recently and I'm sure long may that continue.

He is the founder of the Real MOVEMENT Project, which was born of a decade of research into what it takes to reach the highest levels of performance. He's got a very impressive resume. He was the strength and conditioning coach at the Sydney Roosters, London Broncos. If you're not familiar with them, they're rugby league teams in the NRL. He's worked with some amazing athletes including [Sonny Bill Williams 00:00:49], whose now gone on and become a world cup New Zealand all black legend, pretty much. He's a big rugby league star, too. He recently worked with [Ali Day 00:00:58], whose an Ironman, Australian Ironman champion. 

Keegan's own personal journey is phenomenal. He talks about the days of him when he was suffering from chronic fatigue and what he looked upon to make amends to that and how it's led now into what is not the Real MOVEMENT Project, which we go into in depths but, essentially is becoming almost the best version of yourself. Using exercise movement, and food, and building a community around that, and hanging out with like-minded people to then take inspiration and draw that from everyday so, you can apply it in your life. 

As I've gotten to know Keegan like I said, he's certainly made me think about the way I move daily. It's inspired me to take on new challenges, literally as we speak. I genuinely think there's something in this podcast for everyone. Whether you're a fitness trainer and your fully into strength and conditioning, or not. You might go to the gym once a week but, it'll certainly make you look at the way we approach our lives on the daily [00:02:00] basis. I got a lot out today and I'm sure you're going to thoroughly enjoy. 

I will mention as well, we've got the clean eating video series, that's coming up. They're 3 videos that we've made available for free for you guys. You just need to go back to 180nutrition.com.au/clean. These videos are going to be available for 1 week only. It's pretty much putting my [inaudible 00:02:26] sorts and philosophies, what we've learned from all this podcasting and working in the industry for the last 6 years into 3 bite size videos so, you can take action and make 2016 the best year as well. Why are we only making them available for 1 week? We want to create scarcity around it so you guys will take action, and sit down, and actually watch them, and then apply it. Anyway ... They're to recommend to family and friends, as well. That's 180nutrition.com.au/clean. They will be available in the USA as well. Awesome. Let's go over to Keegan Smith. 

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

Stu:Hello, mate.

Guy:Our awesome guest today is Keegan Smith. Keegan welcome to the show.

Keegan:Good day guys. Thanks for having me on.

Guy:Yeah, mate. It's been a long time coming, I reckon. I just wanted to start out as well, I've been following you on Instagram for quite a while now. Everyday, I see you juggling, doing backward flips, throwing a lot of weight round, walking the tightrope but, doing something that looks a lot of fun. I reckon it's clear that you love what you do and you enjoy doing it as well.

Keegan:Yeah, definitely. It's such an important part of the success that you have is, that you love what you're doing. I can see with you guys and the amount that you've grown. It's always inspiring to see what you're doing and your podcast growth is extending your reach and your impact. I love seeing people who are passionate about what they do; get what they want. It doesn't get much better than that. 

Guy:It’s awesome [00:04:00] and I know we were having this conversation yesterday as well, about … It’d be easy to assume that you were always been this way and doing what you do because you make it look so easy and effortless for when it comes to movement, strength conditioning, and the whole shebang. Pretty keen to get in and tell us a little bit about your own journey and what’s brought you to this point today, really. Also, your impressive resume along the way, as well. Start wherever you want, mate.

Keegan:Appreciate your kind words but, yeah it’s definitely not effortless. The art is to do stuff that’s really hard and keep yourself calm as you do it and under control. I think that changes the psychological response during your training will affect your physiological response. It’s actually a really important part of what we do is, trying to look calm and keep things under control as you train. It’s definitely been a journey and it’s been [inaudible 00:04:57]. I had that background of sports growing up. My father’s an NRL coach of 30 years so, I was always around rugby players and the sporting environment. Mum was an elite athlete as well but, I guess there was a time there where I turned by back on all that and decided to look for something deeper and went backpacking quite a while. That led to a physical deterioration. Even though though I was still trying to eat relatively healthy and get some training done, it did definitely slip.

At the end of that time, I basically got to the stage of chronic fatigue where I just had no energy to train. If I trained, I’d just have a headache, and I’d go home straight to bed, and I’d stay in the dark room for the rest of the day, kind of thing. It was … They were dark times in a lot of ways but, I knew was on my way to something important.

That was probably why I changed and gradually things have got better from that point up until now. I wouldn’t say … I talk about canaries and cockroaches.

The canaries are the fragile ones [00:06:00] and the cockroaches are the ones that are hard to kill no matter what you do. I was definitely very much on the canary side of the spectrum, I was very sensitive to anything; electromagnetic radiation, or foods, or training, all these kind of challenge and stimulus. I’ve come a long way since then but, if I get things wrong, I can still slip back. It’s been exciting to learn all the things that can build myself to that … To be able to do a bit more than I used to be able to do-

Hey, this is Guy Lawrence of 180 Nutrition and welcome to today’s health sessions. We have an awesome guest for you today and his name is Dr. Jeffrey Fannin. Now, he’s the founder and executive director for the Center of Cognitive Enhancement and Thought Genius. Now, he’s also an international authority and speaker in the field of neuroscience research. In a nutshell, he’s a brain expert and understands the brain, how it operates. He has extensive experience training the brain essentially for optimal brain performance and he’s been doing this for 17 years.

It’s a podcast you’re going to have to hang on to your hats to a little bit and if it was the first time we had a brain expert on. Now, in a nutshell, he’s been working with people from such as like head traumas, attention deficit disorders, ADD, ADHD, anxiety disorders, depression, trauma recovery. He’s then worked on the other end of the scale for high performance training such as personal achievement, personal performance, brain mapping for sports, enhancing leadership skills and all this is through brain entrainment.

I have to say this is a podcast that goes in every direction totally and this one I’m definitely going to listen to again just to fully understand everything that was spoken about today. All I say is just keep an open mind and just absorb it and see how you go. There’s a lot of practical advice in there too.

Just to give a bit of background, I first met Dr. Fannin. I actually had a brain mapping consultation with him. I was fortunate enough to be in a Dr. Joe Dispenza workshop now a few months ago and if you’re not familiar who Dr. Joe Dispenza is, we actually interviewed him on the podcast a few months ago as well. I highly recommend you check that out because it’s going to be quite a correlation into today’s episode. Essentially, we went to basically a meditation boot camp, if you like, for four and a half days and they brought a team of scientists [00:02:00] in and measured the activity of the brain and the coherence and what was going on within the body. That was Dr. Fannin’s role so I got to know him them and then I’d have consultations since. It’s just been blowing me away with the information I’ve learned from it and now I’m just trying to bring it back in and apply it to my daily life because that’s what we want to do. You want to try and be the best version of yourself and move forward with that.

If ever you’re wondering why we think negative thoughts, why we can be in a state of anxiety half the time, why do we do the things we do even though we don’t want to be doing them and we have bad habits and all sorts and all sorts and react to situations when we don’t necessarily want to, then Dr. Jeff Fannin is going to certainly explain a lot of that today.

Strap yourself in and enjoy. All right, let’s go ahead to Dr. Jeff Fannin.

Hi, this is Guy Lawrence. I’m joined with Stuart Cooke as always. Hi Stuart.

Stu:                  Hello mate.

Guy:                  And our fanstastic guest today is Dr. Jeffrey Fannin. Jeffrey, welcome to the show.

Jeff:                  Hi, it’s a pleasure to be here. Thank you so much for having me on.

Guy:                  It’s greatly appreciated. Now you’re actually our first brain specialist so I think you need to go easy on us a little bit today, okay?

Jeff:                  I’ll try and do that, yeah.

Guy:                  It does get me thinking, if you sat in an airplane next to a complete stranger and they asked you what you did for a living, how would you answer that?

Jeff:                  That happens to me more frequently than you think. We might be at a dinner party or on an airplane or something like that and it always gets around to what do you do. I used to answer that in a variety of ways and I’ve tried to simplify it. Now I explain to people I’m a neuroscientist. Then they get this deer in the headlights look, just like oh my good, this guy’s reading my brain. Then they want to know more about that and so we ensue with that conversation. What does [00:04:00] that mean exactly?

We measure brainwave activity and we do that through brain mapping. We do an EEG, electroencephalogram, and then we will convert that into a quantitative EEG which means that we look at all these little heads and the colors on there tells us what’s going on in the brain. With these consults that I do everyday for people all around the world that have been to one of Dr. Joe Dispenza’s events and we do brain mapping on them and then I can do an interpretation. We use a GoToMeeting like what we’re doing on Skype here. I bring up their brain map and I can show them here’s what’s working for you, here’s what’s not working for you.

We even have a lot of signatures from people who are highly intuitive and I’ll show them that signature and ask them a question, do you think that you’re intuitive and the stories I get after that are just amazing. Well, yeah, it comes out in this way and that way and so I’ll show them the pattern of here’s the part that is what we call clairsentient or you know things about people but you don’t know how you know it. Then I’ll show them the signature on the other side of the brain of this is when people are able to interpret other people’s emotional states and you can do that quite readily. Then they’ll have a lot of stories about that.

Everybody has that ability. The question is do people tend to cultivate that and so with these meditators that we work with all around the world, the one thing that I’m finding that’s really fascinating to me is when we look at their brain map that there are these markers. There’s about 12 markers and we see a great deal in consistency. Over the last three years that we’ve measured them [00:06:00] at these events, probably close to 3,000 people, and talking with them we see the same kinds of signatures. Some are more defined than other but these people have the same markers and those markers really are the starting point where the magic begins to happen for a lot of these people.

We measure people who have actually inter-dimensional experiences. They have beings that visit them during these events. We have a lot of people who have been able to do healing. We’ve got a lot of stories in Dr. Joe’s book You Are the Placebo: Making Your Mind Matter and a bunch of brain cases in there where people have gotten rid of brain tumors, people who have lessened the effects of Parkinson’s disease or Hashimoto’s disease. Over the years, we hear a lot of that going on.
