180 Nutrition -The Health Sessions.

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?

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.

Hey, this is Guy Lawrence at 180 Nutrition and of course welcome to another great episode of The Health Sessions, where we're cutting through the confusion by connecting with the leading global health and wellness experts to share the best and the latest science and thinking guys to empower everyone to turn their health and lives around, including myself, because after recording this episode today it is certainly making me think about the future of where my health is going. It's an incredible episode. We welcome back to the show today Dr. John Hart, who is a longevity expert. We had him on the show probably over a year ago and I'd highly recommend you listen to that episode, too, if you haven't, because it really complements this one. Today we are tacking the topic of Alzheimer's and dementia and brain cognition in general, really, and it was absolutely fascinating.

[00:02:00] If you're not familiar with Dr. John Hart, he runs a very busy functional medicine practice specializing in brain health. His passion for brain health led to the establishment of The Hart Clinic for Brain Health Medicine, which we get to talk about today. Him and his team have completed Dr. Dale Bredesen's practitioner training at the Buck Institute of Research of Aging and are offering patients access to this groundbreaking protocol which has been shown to reverse early Alzheimer's disease. I can tell you what, guys, if you know anyone that is suffering with dementia or Alzheimer's, you have to listen to this episode and start implementing some practical advice that John says today, and if you have got a lot of sugar in your diet, I promise you after this episode I'm pretty sure you're going to be removing it - well, I hope so, anyway.

Today's episode just really reinforces the fact about removing processed foods, getting the sugars out of your diet, giving care to yourself, and getting all the basic fundamentals right to set you up well for the long term, because you know prevention is the greatest cure of all and listening to John today is just another fantastic reminder.

[00:03:00] We get a lot of emails with people coming in and struggling and confused about their diet and that's all we want to encourage is to bring them things back. If you are one of them people listening to this and you haven't checked out our product range on our website, go back and check it out, because especially our token 180 Superfood and our greens formula, and there's a couple of other key products there as well, are designed to help you eliminate bad food choices quickly and conveniently and give you all the nutrients, the fiber, the protein, the fats, the vitamins and minerals, all in one hit coming from a natural source. It's as simple as making a smoothie in the morning and replacing those processed foods. I can't stress it enough, and it we've seen it time and time and again, the moment people start doing that, start helping lower their inflammation and it can contribute to your health longer term as well.

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

Stu

Hello Guy.

Guy

Our awesome guest today is Dr. John Hart. John, welcome to the show.

John

Thanks Guy, thanks for having us back. Stu, how are you doing?

Stu

Very well, thank you, John. Great to have you back on the show.

Guy

Yeah, it's been over a year mate. Time is flying, it's incredible. We're very much excited to get you back on the show, John, because the last episode you did with us did incredibly well and there was a wealth of information. We're looking forward to stuck into today's topic, which we haven't cover on the show either, believe it or not. It's going to be fantastic.

Now John, just to get all our listeners up to speed, would you mind just sort of filling in a little bit about yourself and what you do?

John

Sure. The area of medicine I work in is called functional medicine, which is looking at the root cause of chronic degenerative diseases that are by far the commonest problem in society now. It used to be up til about 100 years ago that most people died and suffered from infections and trauma, but we've controlled the environment now to the point that infections and trauma are no longer big problems. The big problems now are the chronic degenerative diseases that do damage a little bit every day that adds up over decades and eventually ends up manifesting as the things that commonly kill us - dementia, cancer, heart attack, stroke. Functional medicine is a branch of medicine that looks at the underlying causes of those diseases. Rather than just getting symptomatic control, it's going downstream, looking at the cause, fixing the cause, and then the symptoms go away.

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. Of course, then they show you how we can apply that message into our busy lives of today. We dive into it. You are going to love it. It was great to have Donal back on the show as well. If you do enjoy this episode, we've got a couple of other interviews that are very related because we've had Donal on before and other people from the cereal killers movie. Just remember Sammy [Inki-nen 00:01:36] and also [Me-ri-de-th 00:01:38] Lauren and Dr. Peter [Brook-na-sa 00:01:40]. They were all related to the other movie, so if you want to delve into this more and this message, just go and check those episodes back, but we will link on the show notes as well over at 180nutrition.com.au.

[00:02:00] Of course, don't forget guys, we are now distributing in New Zealand, so our products are available in New Zealand and the USA and I think Dubai is not far behind as we speak as well. If you are looking to clean up your diet and you are looking to improve your lifestyle as well, just head back over to 180 nutrition.com.au and there is a whole host of products; clean and ethical, ones that only we use and produce ourselves that can certainly help enhance your daily diet to bring in this way of life even more. Check them out when you can and of course drop us an email if you've got any questions.

Anyway, let's go over to Donal O'Neil. Enjoy.

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?

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.

Anyway, let's go over to Ben Greenfield. Enjoy.

Ben:

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.
