Hey, guys. This is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Joel Greene to the podcast. Joel, thank you so much for sharing some of your time. How are you today?

Joel

01:28 I'm actually fantastic. Yeah. Thank you. Thank you so much for having me. I really appreciate it.

Stu

01:34 No, certainly the honor is all mine, but first up, for all of our listeners that may be new to you, unfamiliar with you, and your work, and your message, I'd love it if you could just tell our listeners a little bit about yourself.

Joel

01:50 Yeah. So, the question I get a lot is, "Are you a doctor or where'd you get all this stuff?" And my answer is pretty much, I really think of myself as just a consumer. I mean, that's all that I've ever really thought of myself as. I'm just a consumer who, if you go down a certain rabbit hole, and the meta rabbit hole would be that thing we call fitness and body consciousness. If you go down that rabbit hole and listen to people, and then you continue down that rabbit hole, I'm just what you get at the end of 30, 40 years of that, which is at the midpoint, very disillusioned, then where I'm at now, which is just really after what really works in the real world over time for the vast majority of people. What got me to that was, I had done the whole fitness thing starting really in 1970 with Jack LaLanne.

I'm very, very old, so a billion years ago when there was just three channels, Jack LaLanne was like the only thing on, and I would just get up every morning and I would go. I had a onesie that had Tigger on it and Jack had a onesie so, as a kid, I thought that was kind of cool. He's got a onesie too. So, I would just go and I would just mimic whatever he did, and it kind of just became this thing that I got into and did my entire life. So, what happened was, I just was fortunate to grow up around a lot of Olympic athletes. I lived in San Jose, California, and at the time, you had Bruce Jenner, now Caitlin, and you had Mac Wilkins and you had Millard Hampton and Ben Plucknett and all these Olympic gold and silver medalists that were training there.

So, I was around that and I just got bitten by the athletic bug really early. So, in fifth grade, I was going and doing interval sprints at school, trying to get faster. In ninth grade, we had all these Olympic athletes that would train at my high school because my high school coach was an Olympic vaulting coach and he actually coached Jenner. So, I just was doing what they were doing, and they were doing clean and jerks and Olympic lifts. I was so skinny. I'm six, three, and I was 160 pounds, and I was humiliated when people saw my arms. I was doing everything I could do to just not be so skinny. So, I kind of got bitten by the bodybuilding bug when I was very young, 12, 13 years old. I kind of followed that path throughout going into my twenties, and I was never paid to be fit. I was never a fitness person. I was just a regular person, and I would just take whatever was new as soon as it came out and I would just wholeheartedly just digest it and do it militantly. So, in the late eighties, a company came out, Champion Nutrition, and they had a product called Metabolol II, and it was what was called a metabolic optimizer. The label said, "MCTs, the fatless fat." This was the era where fat was evil, and every product out there had a no fat, no fat on the label. So, here's this company saying on the label these fats can't be stored as fat. I was blown away by that. I was like, "Wow. How's this work?" So, I started really studying everything I could find on MCTs and nutrition.

About that time, 2000 or 91, 92, I think, Vince McMahon got into bodybuilding and put everybody on the keto diet. So, this was more of this fat thing. I started looking at this and how can it be that fats can make you lean. That was impossible back then. That led into when Met-Rx first came out in the early nineties. I was like one of the first hundred customers for that. They had it in two cans and it was amazing stuff. Like I got pealed. I was probably 5% body fat for a number of years on that stuff.

Questions asked during our conversation:

  • Are there any popular exercises/movements that you don’t recommend?

https://180nutrition.com.au/

This week, I'm excited to welcome Martin Silva back to the show. Martin is a transformation coach, award-winning fitness model, public speaker, podcaster. The list goes on. He's a rare breed in the fitness industry and his focus is geared towards a holistic approach with long-term health as his main goal. In this episode, we talk about how the pandemic has affected the health and fitness space and how he's managing to get amazing results with his online clients using minimum equipment. Over to Martin.

Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I am delighted to welcome Martin Silva back to the podcast. Martin, good to see you, mate. How are you?

Martin

01:25

Good to see you too, Stu. I'm great. It's good to catch up. Last time we touched bases before lockdown, so great to see your face, man. Great to see you stack some size on there as well from some of the concepts of my program. You need to get a bigger t-shirt, Stu, for sure.

Stu

01:41

Like we were saying, it's either a washing machine problem.

Martin

01:44

Yeah, a bit of both. I reckon a bit of both, muscle gains and tumble dryer job, that is.

Stu

01:49

Fantastic. So before we get into the conversation, I've got so many great questions to throw at you as well, this time. For all of those people that are new to the podcast and may not be familiar with you or your work, I'd love it if you could just tell us a little bit about yourself.

Martin

02:05

Sure. Yeah. So I'm a fitness professional, and I've been coaching people as a personal trainer for over 15 years now. I ventured into the online space as well. So I've been coaching people online for about five years and I literally live, breathe, and eat health and fitness and getting people in shape, that's my wheelhouse, if you like, just to simplify that one.

And also I've competed as a bodybuilder, so I've done it naturally. I've never taken the performance enhancing supplements and whatnot, but I have competed against some of the best athletes in the world in non tested federation. So, where a lot of people do take stuff or whatever, but I've competed in those federations and I've done it naturally. I always like to clear that one up, right. Because it's a fundamental difference, but no bodybuilding, I did that for about three, four years, competed nine times and got to the professional level there.

And yeah, I mean, like I said, lifting weights and health, I've had my own journey in terms of looking after myself and going from I talked about this on the last podcast, but being driven mainly by how I looked and maybe by aesthetics to focusing more on health, and being kind of forced in a sense to really hone in on taking care of myself and making my health a priority instead of being driven by how I looked. But yeah, I mean, I could go on all day. I don't want to give you my life story and bore you, Stu. But that's the main ones there, mate.

This week, I'm excited to welcome Ryland Engelhart. He is the Co-Founder and Executive Director of Kiss the Ground. He is also a co-creator of the award-winning, transformational documentary film, “May I Be Frank.” He is an entrepreneur and activist, and works to inspire more "gratitude" into our culture. He speaks on sacred commerce, tools for building community, and regeneration and is the host of Kiss the Ground's "We Can Do This Podcast."

Questions asked during our conversation:

  • How do you define regenerative vs degenerative agriculture?
  • Is it too late to be considering sustainability?
  • How important are animals in the soil health conversation?

https://180nutrition.com.au/

This week, I'm excited to welcome Ryland Engelhart. Ryland is an entrepreneur, a restaurateur and social activist who co-owns the super popular plant-based restaurants Cafe Gratitude and Gracias Madre. He's also co-founder of Kiss the Ground, a nonprofit increasing social awareness and educating millions of people about the extraordinary benefits of healthy soil. In this episode, we discuss the fundamentals of regenerative agriculture and discover what we can all do at a community level to cultivate global regeneration. Over to Ryland.

Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I am delighted to welcome Ryland Engelhart to the podcast, Ryland, how are you?

Ryland

00:01:50

I'm feeling great. Thank you so much. It's been great to get to know you a little bit before we jumped in here. And yeah, grateful to share love and information. That was kind of my mom's declaration of what there was to do in life, was to share love and information. And so it's always a delight to be invited to speak on a podcast, to share with new audience about what I've learned over my life that could potentially be helpful for others.

Stu

00:02:23

That is awesome. Well, that is what we are super excited about diving into today. But first up, for all of our listeners that might not be familiar with you or your work, I would love it if you could just tell us a little bit about yourself and your background, please.

Ryland

00:02:35

Okay, beautiful. So professionally over the last 15 years, I've been working within a family business, a restaurant business on the West Coast of the United States called Love Serve Remember. It is a management company that oversees two different restaurant chains. One is called Gracias Madre, which is organic plant-based Mexican food. And one is called Cafe Gratitude, which I know many Australians who have come and visited California have come to Cafe Gratitude. You guys have been a big international group that has been big fans of Cafe Gratitude. And really, yeah, we've been a family of, I would say, entrepreneurs really driving health and wellness and plant-based lifestyle.

15 years ago when we started the Cafe Gratitude, there was no such thing in the general lexicon of understanding of what cold brewed coffee was. No one was eating kale. Quinoa was not pronounceable. And almond milk, there wasn't almond milk on the shelf. It was just a completely different time. And we had the amazing opportunity of understanding as a family. We had been vegetarian for most of our lives and really got into healthy, organic food, and wanted to provide that for people through our restaurants. But I would say the bigger mission of our restaurant company was about spreading the consciousness of gratitude and really, how do we create a public domain, a business, a commercial venture, where we invite people in to that space, and we not only nourish them with healthy food, but we actually also curate healthy or meaningful or purposeful or grateful conversations. And so really, the food was the kind of carrot to get people in the door, but really we were more after having people be centered in a grateful place.

What we saw was when you're grateful, you are more present and you're also more loving and kind. When you're full of great, you're not trying to get stuff from the world. You're not trying to be a consumer, more and more and more for me, me, me, because you're in gratefulness. You're in the spirit of gratitude. So that was a a long intro, but yeah, the Cafe Gratitude's been around for 15 years. We have restaurants in the Bay Area on San Diego and in Los Angeles. So that's kind of been my professional world for the last 15 years.

And then I ventured out about seven years ago actually to start my own nonprofit called Kiss the Ground, which is kind of my current passion and focus. And really, that's focused on education advocacy for healthy soil and regenerative agriculture as the basis of a healthy civilization. And that if we really trace back a lot of the problems that humanity faces, it comes back to a destruction of the ecology that serves all of life coming from that earth, and that if we could get our relationship to soil, right and if we could heal our soils, we could actually heal a lot of our human health challenges. We could heal a lot of our ecological degradation. The big kind of aha moment was, oh my God, there's actually a solution to how we can reverse and bring the carbon out of the atmosphere that's causing climate change. We can actually draw enough carbon down into the soil, such that it actually provides something of value in soil so it makes a problem into a solution when that carbon comes out of the air into the soil, and that everyone who eats could be potentially catalyzing that movement.

So I started a nonprofit called Kiss the Ground to really advocate and educate around regenerative agriculture so that we could scale that up to what the new norm in agriculture. Because looking long and hard at the future of humanity on planet earth, I didn't really see how the current sustainability framework or model could actually make a difference. It just seemed like kind of ideas that were less harmful that made us feel good in the now moment, but really weren't actually going to make the difference that makes the difference, and that we were just going to slowly drive off a cliff. Now I have a son who's two, and so it makes me even more passionate about how we can heal and regenerate this beautiful, precious one of a kind planet in the universe.

Kristan

02:28

Absolutely. So I’m a mom to three. And believe it or not, you won’t have caught this, I could have warned you before and I’m sorry for it, but it’s pronounced Kristan, just to throw people because you’ll hear it pronounced different ways.

He's the founder of The Four Winds Society, an organization dedicated to bridging ancient shamanistic traditions with modern medicine and psychology.

Questions we ask in this episode:

Stu

This week, I'm excited to welcome Dr. Alberto Villoldo. Dr. Villoldo is a psychologist and medical anthropologist who has studied the shamanistic healing practices of the Amazon and Andes for over 30 years. He's the founder of The Four Winds Society, an organization dedicated to bridging ancient shamanistic traditions with modern medicine and psychology.

In this episode, he shares his experiences in the Amazon and discusses how he teaches people to grow new bodies that resist disease through modern day shamanistic rituals. Over to Dr. Villoldo.

Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I'm delighted to welcome Dr. Alberto Villoldo to the podcast. Dr. Villoldo, how are you?

Alberto

01:53 I'm well. Thank you.

Stu

01:55 Thank you so much for sharing your time. And I know that you've got a very unique story that we're going to dig into this morning, and it's going to take us on a little bit of a different journey. But before we get into that, I would love for any of our listeners that may not have heard about you or your work, just to tell us a little bit about where you started and why you do what you do, please.

Alberto

02:18 Just in a nut shell, I'm a medical anthropologist and I've spent the last 30 years traveling through the Amazon and the Andes mountains and throughout the jungles of the world to study the shamans, the medicine men and women that create health. They don't treat disease. Their practice has to do with creating the conditions for health, and then disease goes away or does not manifest.

In contrast with our Western medical practice, where we don't really have a healthcare system, we have a deceased care system. The shamans that I work with focused on creating health, psychosomatic health, health through your foods, your diet, nutrition, through your breathing practice, your sleep, and of course, through the luminous energy field that surrounds the physical body and organizes it.

This week, I'm excited to welcome Matt Chaplin to the show. Matt's a veteran of the fitness industry who transitioned from the pace of the city to set up a more holistic studio in Byron Bay. His vision is to promote health, wellness and optimize human performance with longevity as a constant focus. In this episode we discuss how to determine the best exercise and movement program for ourselves with so many options available.

01:09 We also dig deep into restoring the body for recovery and performance and discuss how to use our environment to optimize our health. Over to Matt.

01:21 Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Matt Chaplin to the podcast. Matt, how are you?

Matt

01:28 Good, thanks, Stu. Thank you for having me.

Stu

01:29 Matt, I'm very excited to dial in [inaudible 00:01:32] today, so really appreciative of your time. But first up, for all of those that may not be familiar with you, your work, I just wondered if you could tell us a little bit about yourself please.

Matt

01:45 So I'll go back to the start. I was born in a small country town, grew up in a small country town, which was just based around. You went to school, you played sport till it went dark, you had dinner, and you wanted to go play more sport. That was life up until I finished school. Then I moved to the big smoke of Melbourne and I originally went there to play cricket. But my body let me down really badly by the time I was 22. Shin splints, I tore muscles, osteo pubis, you name it. I was a broken man at 22 and that led me to the personal training career that I'm in now because I wanted to work out how to fix my body cause I knew I'd broken it down by training really hard push, push, push the work out.

02:34 Right. How do I fix this? So then I cut my teeth in personal training in Melbourne and I spent 20 years there.

This week, I'm excited to welcome Dr. Dave Rabin to the show. Dr. David Rabin MD, PhD is the chief innovation officer, co-founder and co-inventor at Apollo Neuroscience Inc. In his role, Dr. Rabin is developing Apollo Neuroscience's IP portfolio and running clinical trials of the Apollo technology, the first scientifically-validated wearable system to improve focus, sleep and access to meditative states by delivering layered vibrations to the skin. Dr. Rabin is a board-certified psychiatrist, translational neuroscientist, inventor and has been studying the impact of chronic stress in humans for more than 10 years. He has specifically focused his research on the clinical translation of non-invasive therapies that improve mood, focus, sleep and quality of life in treatment-resistant illnesses. Dr. Rabin received his MD in medicine and a PhD in neuroscience from Albany Medical College and trained in psychiatry at Western Psychiatric Institute & Clinic at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

Dr. Rabin organized the world’s largest controlled study of psychedelic medicines in collaboration with colleagues at Yale, the University of Southern California, Mt. Sinai, I’Dor, Modern Spirit, and MAPS (Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies) to determine the mechanisms of the dramatic therapeutic benefits observed following psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy in treatment-resistant mental illness. Biological specimens are being collected from the first cohort of patients diagnosed with treatment-resistant PTSD in the MAPS FDA phase 3 double-blind randomized placebo-controlled crossover trial that began in 2019.

Dr. Rabin is also the founder and executive director of the Board of Medicine, a nonprofit charity focused on improving the safety and effectiveness of medication-based treatments for patients and healthcare providers. Dr. Rabin built and led a team of expert physicians and scientists to spearhead the development of the world’s first evidence-based peer-reviewed clinical guidelines for the safe use of medical cannabis and other complementary and alternative medicines. The Board of Medicine uses these guidelines to train and certify healthcare providers and industry partners, as well as to provide quality control standards for natural and unregulated medicines to support the community goals of high-quality clinical research and harm-reduction.

Dr. Rabin continues his clinical psychiatry practice providing psychiatric treatment as well as psychotherapy services to his clients and patients in California and Pennsylvania.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What is HRV and why should we pay attention to it?
  • How can touch and vibration help where stress is concerned?  
  • What is the Apollo wearable and what led you to create it?

This week, I'm excited to welcome Dr. Dave Rabin to the show.

00:48 Dr. Rabin is a board certified psychiatrist and neuroscientist who specializes in the treatment of chronic stress. He's the co-founder of Apollo, a new wearable wellness device scientifically validated to lower stress. In this episode, we discuss how touch and vibration can positively impact HRV, that's heart rate variability, and learn how the Apollo can adapt to enhance focus recovery and sleep. Over to Dr. Rabin. Hey, guys. This is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I'm delighted to welcome Dr. David Rabin to the podcast. Dr. Rabin, how are you?

Dave

01:29 Good, thanks. How are you, Stu? I really appreciate you having me.

Stu

01:32 I really appreciate you sharing some of your time. I know that we got lots to talk about this morning and there's a particular device that we're really intrigued in finding out a lot more about. Before we dial into that, and for all of our listeners that may not be familiar with you or your work, I'd love it if you could just tell us a little bit about yourself please.

Dave

01:53 Sure. I'm a psychiatrist and a neuroscientist. I see patients currently focused on treatment resistant, posttraumatic stress disorder, depression and anxiety, substance use disorders and chronic pain, insomnia, pretty much most mental health conditions that are worsened by stress and some of them that crossover even into physical health. That's a lot of conditions and we see a lot of overlap between those conditions in people. I was working with those patients for a while and I realized that there were a lot of commonalities between these folks that prevent them from achieving their therapeutic goals from treatment. If you have anxiety or depression, your goal of treatment is to feel less anxious and feel happier during the day and have more energy and sleep better at night.

02:41 But less than 50% in a lot of cases are getting that kind of result from their depression treatment in Western medical situations. I started to look at other techniques for how we could help people access those skills and access better sleep, better focus, better energy levels during the day, better mood, that we're starting to look into sort of where Eastern and Western medicine meet, really looking at the breathwork biofeedback and starting to look at meditation and mindfulness practices and the neuroscience of that, right, and how we've evaluated those over the years.

03:19 We know that biofeedback practices boost heart rate variability, something that we'll probably talk about a little later, and heart rate variability turns out to be really interesting, particularly in this day and age, because it is the rate of change of the heartbeat over time, which doesn't sound that interesting. But when you actually look at it more deeply, what you see is that heart rate variability is the single biggest predictor of the effect of stress on our bodies over time. It causes these imbalances in our autonomic nervous system, our stress response system, our recovery response system that prevent us from recovering effectively and then that impairs our performance down the road. Heart rate variability allows us to evaluate that.

03:58 We saw the patients you have PTSD, depression and anxiety all have low heart rate variability. People who have chronic pain, insomnia, they all have low heart rate variability almost across the board. That's really interesting because their bodies and their reports from their mouth when they talk to me would say or my colleagues would say, "I feel really stressed out. My body's always under duress, always under threat. Never feeling like it can rest, take a break, truly feel safe." All of these kinds of language was used. We developed Apollo as a strategy to help give people something that's accessible, that's a wearable technology.

04:37 It vibrates in a very gentle frequency of sound that stimulates the nervous system very much like biofeedback through our sense of touch to help balance the nervous system. We wanted to make something that was accessible and easy for people to use that could actually have realtime benefit in terms of improving our autonomic nervous system balance and helping us access high performance states, high recovery states, and meditative states more effectively.

This week I'm excited to welcome Martin Silva back to the show. Martin is a transformation coach, award-winning fitness model, public speaker, podcaster, the list goes on. He's a rare breed in the fitness industry as his focus is geared towards a wholistic approach, with longterm health as his main goal. In this episode we talk about the common misconceptions that he experiences time and time again in health and fitness space. We talk about eating more, not less in order to get the body you want. And also dig deeper into recovery, sleep and the importance of routines. Over to Martin.

(00:01:21):

Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome back Martin Silva to the podcast. Martin, thank you so much for coming back on again. How are you mate?

Martin

(00:01:32):

My pleasure. I'm great, thanks Stu.

Stu

(00:01:34):

Well that's great. Really, really excited to connect with you today. And a couple of reasons obviously to connect with you and dial into all the knowledge that you have accrued over the years in your industry. But secondly to welcome and introduce and announce you as an ambassador to 180 Nutrition. And so thank you so much for coming on board with us. And just to give our listeners a little bit of a heads up, particularly interested in connecting with you because of a number of things that you do. Obviously you're into personal training and wholistic movement, but at a much deeper level than I see lots of other people doing it. And I'm very interested in anybody who talks about sleep and mindset and motivation as well as nutrition and movement and all the other habits out there as well.

Stu

(00:02:28):

And you apply that to yourself and your clients with a very holistic and natural route, which I think is super rare in the industry, that is tainted with toxic messages and less than authentic supplementation and substances and things like that. So really keen to welcome you onboard. Thanks for sharing some time this morning. But for anyone out there that hasn't heard of you before, it would be great for you just to tell us a little bit about yourself too.

Martin

(00:02:59):

Sure. Firstly, thank you for welcoming me on board. And it's an absolute pleasure, once again, the pleasure's all mine Stu. And yeah, just a little bit more about my background. So where do I start with this? So in terms of personal training, I have been doing this for almost 15 years now. Always juggling a few things. Doing the online coaching, I've been doing that so I've got a handful of people I coach online. I've been doing that for over five years now as well. But just to track back to when I first qualified as a trainer, back when I was like 19 years old. And prior to that I was always competitive, always play in sports from a young age, always had that competitive nature. But when I first started lifting weights properly and consistently, I first picked up a dumbbell when I was about 14 and I got really consistent with it from the age of around about 16.

(00:03:53):

And I never looked back really. I fell in love with it and it was transferred over to my rugby as well, because I was playing rugby at the time. And it just became my passion then and as I said, by three years later, then by the age of 19 I was a qualified personal trainer. So been doing it for a while and eventually then I got into bodybuilding as well. So I'm a pro level natural bodybuilder, although I've competed in Federation, I've never actually competed in a natural Federation. So just to verify that I've always competed in IFBB or WBFF and then non-tested Federation. So, because I put so much work into lifting weights and into essentially training and exercise over the years, and genetics play a part in that as well I'm not going to deny that. I can compete against the best in the world, people who are taking stuff, performance enhancing stuff, ie steroids, I'll just say the word don't know why I'm swerving around [inaudible 00:04:54].

Hi guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I'm delighted to welcome Dr. Will Cole to the podcast. Dr. Cole, how are you?

Dr. Cole
I'm doing great. How are you?

Stu
Very well, thank you, and again very appreciative of your time. I know you're a super busy guy and we're going to get into what you do in a minute, but first up, for all of our listeners that may not be familiar with you, your work, your books, et cetera, I'd just love it if you can just tell us a little bit about yourself please.

Dr. Cole
Yeah. So I am a functional medicine practitioner. So my day job is consulting patients around the world, via a virtual functional medicine practice. So we're consulting them via webcam. My job is to get to the root cause of why they're struggling with their health issues. So whether that's auto-immune issues or hormonal problems or digestive problems, neurological issues, my heart and passion is really to find out why they're struggling. And it's really a sacred responsibility in my opinion. It's a sacred responsibility for me at least to be a part of somebody's health journey. So yeah, I've been doing this for 11 years at this point over that, consulting patients online and my post doctoral education and training is in functional medicine, clinical nutrition. That's really what my passion is and I'm immersed in that space. Getting labs and getting super geeky and putting numbers on spreadsheets and people will have reasons of why they feel the way that they do.

And yeah, when I'm not seeing patients, I'm writing about functional medicine. So I've written articles for the past 11 years on these topics and I [inaudible 00:03:31] instructor and wellness expert for mind body green, one of the largest websites in the world for a long time. They launched shortly after that for Goop, which has been a [inaudible 00:03:42] wellness brand as well. I cohost the Goopfellas podcast, which is Gwenyth and Elise's first spinoff of the main Goop podcast with Gwenyth and Elise host the main one and my friend Seamus Mullen and I host the Goopfellas podcasts and I write books about this stuff too. So I've written Ketotarian, which is the mostly plant-based ketogenic book and The Inflammation Spectrum, my newest book. Which is about inflammation and how inflammation exists on a spectrum and all food and non-food ways, lifestyle ways to calm inflammation because it's such a commonality between so many health problems, autoimmune conditions, neurological symptoms.
