"Makes sense once this gets proven that this would be covered by insurance. Yeah, so next thing I want to talk about and we're almost done is trauma. And I can't talk about longevity without addressing our soul. And whatever we've all been through, that's damaged us in some way that's hurt us in some way that's made us not whole. And we know we know from deep medical research that if you have adverse childhood events and there's a questionnaire we use called the ace questionnaire. That if you have a high score of a lot of adverse childhood events, you're more likely to have all host of diseases from obesity or immune disease to cancer everything. So how do we begin to reimagine the way we deal with trauma? Because talk therapy doesn't really work. CBT cognitive behavioral hearing can help a little bit. Psychiatric medication really has been a massive failure. There's a psychedelic revolution going on that is actually looking at how we get to rethink treating trauma and treating trauma essential because if people don't do that, it's hard for them to get the hands around anything else to love to serve to live longer, love more, sir, better. I mean, it's hard. So whether it's psilocybin mushrooms or ayahuasca or ketamine or ibogaine, these are all things that are being researched explored and assume will be part of our culture and reimbursed and part of psychiatric care. And I think it's going to be incredible. So I'm excited about that. And then the other thing is the stellate ganglion block. Yeah, which is an injection that turns your fight or flight nervous system all the way to sleep. And when that happens, it forces you to use different neuronal pathways, which would be the rest and relax pathways. And so then we've been doing sort of an experimental protocol where we do that and it causes vasodilation of the blood vessels to go to the brain. It causes increased blood flow to the brain, and then when we. Achieve that with the blog, then we've done exosomes, IV. And that's probably the most miraculous thing we've ever come up with up until now in terms of changing trauma. And I don't know if I had told you where this joke in my family, the psychology didn't work. And so I was because my father is a psychologist. And so then I went into anesthesia trying to do the thing for this from psychology. And now about a third of what I do is psychology. But I'm a psychologist with the needle. But then the synergy of that with ketamine with plant based medicine with all of the stuff, I think is the future. And there's a lot of cases that are one and done with any one of those modalities. But then for the hard ones, it takes a little bit of all of those. And I'm super interested in kind of working with that over the next couple of years. So all those things that we just mentioned are available now. But what's coming down the pike, right? Well, artificial intelligence will be able to help us interpret the massive amounts of data that's going on in our body and quantum computing will help us make sense of it. But what's happening now is just advanced as you can imagine like nanobots, being able to deliver and just surgery and drugs that are just enter your DNA, 3D printing of organs, gene editing, and CRISPR. This is just massive changes that are going to change everything we do. And we may just end up being like madam Kumar, who lived to be a 122, was still sexy and smoking. And she had good genes, clearly, but we all have the potential to be a 120. The science is there. And it may be even much, much longer. If you are really love this podcast and you want to hear more, please share your friends and family. I know they love to hear about it.

"And there's a few that are problematic, but if you out of the 5, if you take three of them, this is what David Sinclair did in at Harvard, give him the blind mice, to optic nerve dead, not working. And by the way, I've had a limp for 30 years and my nerve doesn't work and nerves don't grow back off. And if they're dead, it's just the way it goes. They were literally able to regrow by injecting yamato factors into the eyes of these blind mice, regrow these optic nerves and give these blind mice full sight. Now, this is only an animal models, but it's very soon coming down the pike. And there be a future imagined future out of its 5, ten, 15 years away, where you'll be able to get an adenovirus vector or maybe CRISPR to insert Yamanaka factors, the right ones, in your genome, with a special molecular switch that when you want, you can turn it on. So let's say you're putting them in your 25, but then when you're forward, you're like, yeah, I'm getting a little gray hair. A little chubby muscle mass lower. Let me turn that on. So you take that pill over three months, 6 months. And you reverse age. Your skin unwrinkled. Your hair turns black. Your muscles get stronger. Your metabolism improves. That's coming. And this is one of the greatest advances, because it causes the induction of pluripotent stem cells. In other words, you can take any cell in your body and reverse it back to its original state. And then read differentiate into what you want. It's just mind-blowing. And the really the foundation of all this stuff has to work that you've done, functional medicine. That's fundamentally the foundation. And so then within that platform, then you have this diversity of things. There's things that can focus more on infections. There's things that are somewhat more anti aging. And then we're going to have things like the Yamanaka factors and more modules that we can insert into the platform of health. And that's going to be the future. Yeah, I mean, it's basically two things that's going to happen. One is we're going to fix out how to repair and clean up all the damage we've all done to ourselves. And two, we're going to learn how to turn on all the longevity switches and actually really extend life, which is amazing. And I always want to we're almost done. I've spent a few more minutes. This is what Matt does a lot. Ultrasound guided injections everywhere you can think of using technologies that most pain doctors don't use. For example, Grateful Dead background music. He uses he uses things like exosomes and peptides and placental matrix for such healing compounds. And also exosomes. It's what he did to me. And it's really what fixed me. So talk a little bit about and we only have a couple minutes about talk a little bit about the work around the muscle skill regenerative medicine stuff and how it works. So basically, what happens in the body is is that you have nerves and muscle and ligament and tendon and fascia. And when you look with an ultrasound, you can see where the nerve is. You can see the artery, the blood vessel, and my initial area of starting at about 2002 I started doing ultrasound guided nerve blocks where I would use an ultrasound. Look and put a needle right next to the nerve and then put local anesthetic around that nerve and put it to sleep. And then I would give people sedation with ketamine and propofol. And they would not know that anything happened during the surgery and wake up at the end. But when I would do that, people would I would do the nerve block and they would say, hey, you know all that pain that I've been having. I just went away. And they were like, do I have to really have to have the surgery for this? And I was like, yeah, you have to have the surgery, but then I would tell all my nurses. Someday I'm going to have a job where I do ultrasound guided and injections. I'm going to fix pain and I'm going to do IV therapy. And everybody said to me, that doesn't exist. And so then I just kept thinking about that. And then I found out that people were putting other things. The first thing we started putting in around nerves was 5% dextrose because that's kind of a calming it's kind of like prolo, but it's lower inflammatory because it's just 5%. And then I found out about putting growth factors and other things around nerves. And then we would see one person after another that had nerve pain that would start to go away. And so then we started putting those same products in joints are probably my favorite thing to do is to work with people with back pain. Just because if you have back pain, it's almost debilitating is really hard backend neck pain. And it's been a profoundly helpful thing where we treat your facet joints. We put exosomes in the epidural space. But that means in English is he did it to me, is imagine your entire spinal cord like this. He sticks a needle right at the bottom of your spine up that canal and injects 30 CC's, which is a lot of fluid into a very narrow space. And it feels like you're going to explode from the inside. So it sounded nice, but it's actually a very intensive procedure. So he did a couple times without any kind of sedation. I'm like, Matt, and have put me out give me some drugs. But basically, we're trying to look and see how forest moves through the body and see where people have paint. And then basically where people have pain as often where there's partial ligamentous terrorists at the insertion onto a bone or because the nerve is compressed because it's going under a tunnel or over a ridge or often an area that is stuck in chronic pain leads to a whole bunch of physiological changes. And so then we stick needles into the fascia. We stick it into muscles. We stick it into joints and we put fluid around tendons, basically. Anything that we can see that is having a problem, we will treat. And it's been amazing for me. And you not just fluid, but healing fluids like exosomes or peptides. And then directionally, the next ten years is going to be the decade of the peptide in terms of musculoskeletal medicine because we were able to do at an order of magnitude lower price with peptides. Now, what has worked for me better than anything else is exosomes and placental matrix and that continues to be the gold standard. That's true. But we'll have all kinds of people that will begin to see who have not as many resources, and I'm doing a lot of peptide work. And it's nearly as profound. And in some cases, Matt, one of the biggest drivers of cost in our healthcare system is back pain and billions, trillions literally of dollars to spend on this. So it makes sense once this gets proven that this would be covered by insurance. Yeah, so next thing I want to talk about and we're almost done is trauma.

"Different communication systems. But peptides are really the body's superhighway of communication systems and signaling. And then as we age, I mean, this is a longevity talk. The issue is is that our immune peptides really go down as we age, our thymus, which is kind of the master immune gland, starts to involute and do less. And that's why older people are at so much higher risk for chronic infections, and then even at risk for the big viruses that come around. And so I think that supporting the immune system with peptides with immune peptides is going to be a crucial part of managing aging. You can use peptides to manage senescence. You can and so then there's a we now have this incredible palette of molecules that we can begin to kind of in a real detailed way manage how your body responds to healthy living to infections, to trauma, to toxins, to emotions, and PTSD. The sciences advancing so fast. And to be able to actually play in the dance of a biology with these molecules, intelligently, and turn on and off things or help regulate things that degrade is important. I mean, the thymus grades over time. And we now call aging inflammation. And it's really driven by all of the factors that drive ongoing inflammation. So how do you manage that as you get older? What causes it? And yes, all the things we talked about, but there's also ways to peptides to really help support that. This is like a spiritual experience for me because I'm sitting here with nausea and every time Mark does this, he's doing this acupuncture point in my hand. And it's like makes the nausea totally go away. So interesting. Okay. Now, I want to talk about parabiosis for a minute. Which essentially is this discovery that if you hook up the circulation of a young mouse and old mouse, the old mouse gets young. And I think that's fond of television show called blood boy or something. And Mao Zedong used to take the blood of young soldiers and put it in them so he could maintain his youth. And maybe this is really an important scientific discovery because it means there's stuff in the blood of young mice that's helping to keep healthy and young and perverse aging. But you don't have to do that. It's not like I have to find a 5 year old and somebody circulation to him and walk around like that. There are ways to actually do this through plasmapheresis, which is cleaning out the bad stuff in the blood that's driving inflammation. So talk about the work you do about transfer plasma exchange, how it works and when you would use it and what's going on. Okay, so then this one is just really amazing. And so if your blood is basically making up your blood as being about 50% plasma and then 50% cells. And those cells include the white blood cells of your immune system and then red blood cells that are carrying oxygen. And so they're the blood goes round and round and it does what it does. And what we do is we put an IV in one arm and an IV in the other arm. And so then we pull blood out and then I've got two ways I do it. One is where I run it through a centrifuge system where we spin and we separate the cells from the plasma, and then we send the cells back in the plasma goes into a waste. And then the other way that we do it is we take a throw it all the bad stuff. We throw away the basil. And the other way we do is we do it through a plasma separator. And then put your cells back in. Either way, basically we're taking toxins and inflammation straight out of the blood, and then throwing it away and then replacing it with saline and sometimes with albumin as well. It's really being effective in autoimmune diseases and all kinds of chronic things like gilby and bray. It's been used in medicine for a long time, but it's not been used for these applications. Yes, I was used traditionally in extremely severe autoimmune cases because that plasma, one of the things that's in plasma is antibodies. And so if you are, if your immune system is making antibodies to yourself, and then you're attacking yourself, which is what autoimmune disease is. And then we could do something where we could pull all of those antibodies out, but let you keep your cells. It's like we washed the blood. Yeah. Yeah. So what are those things and why don't they come back? I was just antibodies. There's a cytokine. There's immune complexes. There's who knows bacteria, fungus, why isn't this all come back? So they will come back. And so then, for example, in an autoimmune, the classic case is people are intermittently doing this all the time. So doing a regular basis. Doing it on a regular basis. But what we found is when you, when you do a substantial detox, and the body, it allows the body to get back on its feet again. And it allows your immune system to kind of re regulate because once you've taken all of those out, it kind of wipes the deck and it gives you a fresh start. And I've had all these treatments of meth clinic. It's extremely efficient well done. Highly skillful. And I've sent patients to him and who really struggled with everything else. And it's really when they make the breakthroughs. I want to talk about something really cool. So this is all this stuff now. This is now medicine. Everything we talked about today, you can get, you can do. It may not be accessible to everybody, but a lot of the science is there, and it's safe. The question is, what's coming down the pike? It's really exciting. Anybody here, I'm an active factor, so I didn't tell about today. Yemen factors were discovered by Yamanaka, who's a Japanese scientist, and he won the Nobel Prize for this. And essentially, in every cell of your body is the blueprint for your entire body. In your skin cell, you could remake a brain or a liver or a kidney. Why doesn't your skin become a brain? Or your nose become an eye? It's because of all the genes you have, many of them are silenced and only turning on the right ones to do the job that they're supposed to do. And as we grow, the yamuna factors are involved in regulating how far we grow and then they turn off. Because we want to grow new tissue we want to build a we don't want to keep doing that because that would be bad. So they get silenced and they stop for the rest of our lives. But they're there. And he discovered them.

"You shut down something called an NL three P inflammasome. You inhibit something called NF Kappa B, which is a transcription factor that turns on all the inflammation genes. It inhibits all the coagulopathy as we see, for example, COVID. And it basically increases your brain chemistry. So there's so many benefits to it that your body can engage with because activating the body's own healing system. It's like danger. Okay, let's go. And that's what happens. Pretty amazing. And so that we do, we do a form of ozone therapy where we run ozone through a dialysis filter. And a red blood through dialysis filter, and at the same time we mix the blood there with ozone, which can be quite helpful for chronic infections. And we've been using it for people with long COVID and with very good benefits, also. And we're going to get another kind of dialysis in a little bit. But the next thing I like to talk about is hyperbaric. So we can just spend a few minutes on those. So hire barracks, oh yeah, so I'm actually a hyperbaric certified doctor. And the reason I got into it was to help patients with wounds and also to help people with these chronic infections, people with Lyme disease, chronic mold, long COVID, all generally do quite well with oxygen. And basically what happens is you get into that chamber and they put the pressure up. And then over the course of the time that you're in the chamber because you're breathing a 100% oxygen at pressure, the partial pressure of oxygen goes up in every single compartment in your body. So initially, the amount of oxygen goes up in your blood. But then eventually you get an increased concentration of oxygen in your bones in your brain and in every organ. And then that increased concentration of oxygen has a whole bunch of beneficial side effects that are helpful. And so that's why people do well after strokes, for example, because you're increasing the concentration of oxygen in the brain. And interestingly, I've had a lot of great results combining ozone therapy with injections. Yeah, I mean, it's basically how I got out of my deep sickness with mold and colitis and autoimmune disease after C diff. I used IV nutrition. I use ozone. I use hyperbaric and I used stem cells. And so stem cells are controversial, confusing, the legislation and regulations around them are all over the place. And you can get them some places here, but you can't grow them, so people go to Mexico or Panama, Caribbean. So give us a one or two minute stem cell overview. So stem cells, we have stem cells in every organ. We have stem cells all over our body. And what stem cells do is think of a stem cell as a general contractor that kind of rolls up on a construction site that is inflammation. If you bruise your leg or bruise your knee, the result of that brewer is you release a whole bunch of cytokines. The cytokines are there and what they do is they call stem cells in or they activate stem cells that are in the local area. And then what those stem cells do is they take a look and then they begin to regulate and modulate that inflammation. So they bring the inflammation down and you say, well, how do they do that? And the way they do that is by secreting small vesicles of growth factors called exosomes. And so then the we've actually decided doctor Kaplan, who came up with the name zech mo stem cell, actually retracted that. And now he calls a medicinal signaling cell because the stem cell is basically a mobile pharmacy that rolls around and looks for inflammation in your body and then regulates and manages that inflammation. And manages the healing response. Yeah, I mean, so stem cells are really the original cells that create all the other cells. And that's when you cut your skin, your skin heals because also what to do. They age, they age out and they get harmed. We have less of them as we age. And so people are going, should we use umbilical stem cells? Do we use placental stem cells? And there's a lot of exploration of that. You can't use somebody else's stem cells because your body will react to it as a foreign substance. But this technology is emerging and now we can get purified stem cells. They can be extremely helpful. And the applications that use is for orthopedics for aging for various diseases, really interesting. But what Matt said was really important, which is that they're basically little carrier groups for all the good stuff. They're in the stem cells. It's not like the stem cell goes somewhere and becomes something else. It releases other factors. And those are exosomes. And Matt uses exosomes a lot in his practice. I've been huge beneficial exomes. And I was really under the weather with COVID. And I got sent a bunch of exosomes and I took it in the next day I was back to normal. It was pretty remarkable. So exosomes are what? So exosomes are those vesicles that stem cells secrete. And so fundamentally, we're always at some level of inflammation, but generally we're able to manage and modulate that. Something can happen that can spin inflammation out of control. An example of that would be like a viral infection that is creates inflammation that's beyond what your body can begin to deal with. And so then exosomes is we're injecting billions and billions of vesicles with growth and healing and modulating factors. And then one of the things that they do, I said that a stem cell will manage inflammation, they manage it with exosomes. And what they do is they regulate and balance immune function. And that regulation is often awry. At the end of an infection. And so it brings you back into kind of a balanced immune state. And the reason they're helpful for so many chronic infections is that in almost all those chronic infections, we're in a constant state of inflammation that is beyond what the body can deal with. And so if you can support with an anti inflammatory, a lot of times that's enough just to reboot a reset for the immune system and then it gets back to doing what I was supposed to do. And they're much easier to take because stem cells have to suck your bone marrow, it's like you're fat, you have to go to foreign country. These are coming to a vial. You just defrost them and eject them, and you can give large dose of them and have profound effects. So next I'd like to talk about peptides in which you all on the boat are hearing about, thinking about getting many of you have been the recipients of Matt cook's largess and helping heal different problems. What are peptides? How do you use them? What are they for? And how do they affect longevity? So there would be a symphony of different molecules that exist within the body that do things. So exosomes are one of those. Proteins and small molecules are other ones. And then a protein is a sequence of amino acids. A baby protein is called the peptide. Less than 20 amino acids. Maybe less than a hundred. And so then, and so then there are peptides that do all kinds of things. You mentioned hormone replacement. There's peptides that will tell your pituitary gland to make more growth hormone and discrete more growth hormone. And since these came out, essentially, everybody that was an anti aging that was giving people growth hormone has quit doing that because it works so much better to tell your body to make growth hormone. There are peptides that are anti inflammatory. We think about one like BPC one 5 7 that is really incredible for burns and pain. Around nerves and even in things like the P shot. The patient, the you can actually put them in the penis and it'll help with penile function. There are peptides that will help reset and turn on mitochondria, peptides that turn on cognitive function. Peptides that are immune supporting. And the immune supporting peptides have been, I think, fantastically helpful for people with COVID as you mentioned. And so then there's this huge diversity of different baby proteins that modulate every aspect of our biology, the assembly line of biology, and they have different inputs and do different things. But we all know about neurotransmitters. We know about hormones. We know about.

"And I did. And I was like, wow, it worked. How much better did you feel? So much better. It's sort of shocking. And so then I get nervous talking about COVID because it's like people don't want you to talk about COVID. But these modalities are profoundly helpful for COVID and for immune dysregulation. And we have been we've been using the diversity of the IV therapies that we use to take care of patients with chronic fatigue, chronic Lyme disease. And what had been the major plagues of our lives before COVID came along. And I think that we were lucky in that sense that it gave us a chance to prepare and learn how to do it. And you know, I think of IV therapy kind of like a meal. I've got 80 things that I use. But I'm not going to give you all 80. So it's going to depend on what's going on. Yeah, it's kind of cool. I go to his clinic, there's like four bags along, what is that? So let's talk about NAD, because NAD is something you know a lot about. It's the latest rage. Everybody's talking about it. All these companies are producing pills. Everybody's saying there's the best. People are doing clinics. Will I be NAD? And so what is NAD? What does it do and how valuable is it? And when do we use it? So any D is actually a form of vitamin B three. And it stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. And it is our body basically is like a battery. And so there's an electrical charge across every cell. And then there's a lot of biochemical reactions that require energy to happen. And NAD is a high energy molecule that donates an electron. And in the process of donating that electron it facilitates biochemical reaction. And so where and it facilitates that reaction determines what it does. So if NAD is donating electron, it can help for DNA repair. It can turn on your sirtuin superfamily. It can help stimulate the krebs cycle, which is how we basically make energy. It facilitates reactions in our mitochondria, which you mentioned earlier. And so NAD is a pervasively helpful molecule. One thing for people to remember is that for patients with complex illness who are real sick, a lot of times we'd like to start very low with the NAD doses. On the other hand, the other side of the spectrum is people with hardcore addiction. They can tolerate a lot because one of the other things that NAD does is it helps break down toxins, including alcohol. Yeah, I think it's used in trauma and brain injury and people with Parkinson's. I've seen dramatic results because it works on the mitochondria to stabilize the mitochondria, which is the source of the Parkinson's problem. It's used for energy and athletes. And so we started doing a lot of NAD years ago and we're focused a lot in the addiction space because that was primarily what NAD was being used for at that time. And now we do a lot of NAD, but we'll do it in smaller amounts. And so and we're pairing that and bundling that with a whole bunch of other things. And so it's easier to go through and so I like it that way. I have a little sofa on board for some seasickness that I got from the waves. Some people will use their friend before NAD. We also used to use trimethylglycine and it helps with some of the side effects of taking any. So it has a lot of beneficial effects in real time, but it also is one of the key activators of sirtuins, which are these master compounds that activate systems in your body that run around, repair your DNA, which is constantly getting hit. You're getting 100,000s of hits every day to your DNA. Your body has to repair them. And even if .1 zero one one 1% isn't fixed, it ends up being a problem. So this is going on so fast. So at warp speed, you can't even imagine what's happening your cells. But NAD will help to activate those longevity for switches, which is so cool. Let's talk about ozone. So ozone is sounds crazy, right? Ozone layer, all that. Ozone is dangerous. Don't breathe it. But it turns out it's one of the most powerful hormetic therapies on the planet. And one of the most important medicines, and it's basically free. So Matt, would you please explain ozone? Why we should be using it where the indications and how it works. So ozone is an oxidative therapy. And it's a O three is unstable, and it will donate an electron. And it turns out our blood has an incredible buffering capacity. And so you can mix ozone with blood and it tends to be safe. And there's a fairly wide range of dosing. But I tend to like some of the lower dosing strategies. And even micro dosing of ozone. By the other hand, our lungs have almost no buffering capacity. And that's why if you breathe ozone into your lungs, this could be a toxin. But because you can put into the blood and what we do is we basically mix the blood with ozone and then outside of the body and put it in. So we're not actually putting ozone gas in the body. We're dissolving ozone in the blood outside of the body and then putting it back in. And what it does is it is that when the donates that electron, it will kill sling dal cell organisms, and it will kill a virus. It's the most powerful germicide on the planet. So then we have been using and many people have been using around the world ozone for lime and mold and complex illness to help people with these chronic infections that are really probably some of the things that are underlying a large percentage of the medical problems that we face. And that in itself is worthy of a deep and good conversation. But so then ozone is a fantastic way to you can think of it as an antibiotic. And so then suddenly now you have one antibiotic that can you can use as an infection. And now you can begin to combine that with other things that are intervening. And it works against viruses, bacteria, yeast, parasites. It's pretty impressive. It's quite impressive. And then you can also inject it. And ozone is 90, 99% oxygen. And so then injecting and you can inject it into infections in the body can inject it separate subcutaneously injected into joint infections. I mean, I had a nasty cellulitis on my foot in Hawaii last year and I thought I was going to have an abscess and have to take antibiotics. And I got ozone infused cream gel. And I put it on. And the next morning, my foot was not red, and I was what happened here. So ozone was invented the machine was invented by Nikolai Tesla. It was used a lot in World War I for wounds because they would soak the gauze and the ozone water, and then they would wrap it around the wounds to prevent infection. But the way the way that it works is as a hermetic therapy, so it creates oxidation, which sounds bad. But that causes the body to go into calling the marines. Bring out the air force. And so all of a sudden, you increase stem cell production. You activate your anti inflammatory system.

"I started trying them. I'm experimenting with them. But you have to be careful. They have some downsides. They're coming up with new rap logs that are select for better silencing without any of the side effects. So rapamycin is that drug. So let's talk about more now what Matt does. And the frontiers are aging and looking at aging biomarkers. So we do a lot of diagnostic tests, and there's going to be more and more diagnostic tests are going to be able to look at. Obviously, your omics revolution. Jonathan and I, well, Jonathan started and I piggybacked on because it was so good. I fought my way in. And a company called function, which is giving you access to your own biomarker data, your own lab data. And we're going to be a layering in things that you're not going to get at your doctor's office. They're going to help you map out your health and longevity. And you're really important ways. So there are all kinds of functional medicine testings that look at the system. So I'm not looking at whether you have diabetes or whether you have kidney failure or looking at what are the dysfunctions in your system. And we can look at telomeres as a biomarker. We can look at this is my telomeres a few years ago. I was 58 in my telomere year was 39. So I've gotten a little bit older. This is true diagnostic, which is a DNA methylation test. These are tests you can do. The gallery test is a new test liquid biopsy that essentially looks at 50 different cancers and you can detect them and then you can get that early stage and get cured pretty awesome. A guy named David fuhrman at Stanford has developed a test where he's put thousands and thousands of molecules in LLCs looking at correlations with chronic disease and inflammation. He's found four to 8 biomarkers of inflammation that we've never heard of that exist in our blood that are highly predictive of an aging and rapid aging and chronic disease. And it's going to be available on the market in the next few months. It's called I age. I agee. Also, we're going to get all the data from the biometric sensors to put up into that. And we're going to have so much information about how our bodies functioning, not looking for disease, not looking for pathology, but looking for what the root causes. And our whole diagnostic model is just it's so antiquated. We really, really have to move beyond the notion of disease and understand the body's dynamic web and function. And yes, sometimes it's helpful to know if you have rheumatoid arthritis or whatever, but just knowing the name of the disease doesn't tell you what's wrong with you. You can have ten people in the rheumatoid arthritis all having very different causes. So when I go to C Matt, he's the future. Matt math taking this to the next level. And it works on a lot of things that I'm going to hand the mic over to where I'm going to give you you go your mic and talk about what you do. And one of those things that are involved for what you do to regenerate people's health. And his clinical is called bio reset medical. And it really is a reset. I personally just quickly, I personally had back surgery two years ago, couldn't walk bad complications, blend in my spine. It was like a 9 year old man. Couldn't do anything. I went to see Matt. And he completely fixed me. It was over a number of sessions. But he completely fixed me, and 30 years of pain gone. And it's pretty impressive. And I've sent him patients with chronic illnesses with COVID with long COVID or autoimmune diseases. And the amalgamation of techniques he uses are all designed to activate the body's own healing systems and mechanisms in ways that aren't giving up prescription. And so he uses therapy as exosomes as peptides those analysis sees as positive freezes and he uses all kinds of injectable techniques, hydrogen sections to like ketamine therapy. It's quite amazing. In addition to all the basic functional medicine stuff. So I'm going to let Mac go and the first slide is really about IV nutrient therapy and the value of that and why and then we're going to go to NAD and I'll kind of guide you through the steps. We think of IV therapy as sort of a platform of a whole bunch of things that you can do. So you can do antioxidants in an IV things like vitamin C you can do NAD in an IV, but it has a diversity of a whole bunch of effects. You can do regenerative therapies like exosomes and you can do regenerative therapies like stem cells. And so it takes good depend on what regulatory environment you're in in terms of what you can do. But I think these are things that are going to become really part of a mainstream way of thinking about care. And it's going to be something that people are going to adopt all over the world. And I think the cat's out of the bag and this can be an exciting time the next 20 years as we start to work with these modalities. And you don't just use the regular IV as my cocktail glutathione, a vitamin C trip. You do a whole array of things that are so extraordinary. You put in plant compounds, olivine, from olives, which are antivirals, and quercetin, and you use any of the spiritual from grapes. So you literally give these plant compounds direct IB. In addition to using things like NAD IV and even peptides, I'd be. So there's a lot of extra things that can be done. I know when I got COVID, I called Matt. What do I do? We just take an entire vial of TB thymus and alpha one, which is an immune regulator. And stick it in a little hundred CC bag and drip it in all once.

"Now supporting healthy aging, adversity. I'm going to start frame the things that can be done that are coming down the track. There's a lot of them and they get confusing. In the context of adversity and abundance. So adversity and abundance. So adversity are things that stress your system basically whatever doesn't. Kill you is good. So it makes you healthier. And abundance are things that activate abundant pathways for good repair. So let's talk a little bit about adversity. This is, this is the Himalayas, and in the Himalayas, there is a plant called Himalayan tartary buckwheat, which is not a grain. It's a flower. Growing in the most adverse condition you imagine, poor soil, date, high altitudes, cold temperatures, drought. Just rough. And in order to survive in order to survive, they have to produce many, many defense chemicals. These molecules, these phytonutrients are not there for us, but they're there for them. And they are their communication systems, their defense systems, and Himalayan buckwheat has basically more phytonutrients than anything on the planet. It's the world's best super food. And you can make pancakes out of it. You can make so many noodles out of it. And it's delicious and amazing. And it also has many, many things that help a microbiome. It's very low glycemic load, high in protein, higher in minerals, and as unique phytochemicals, like tuja, which doesn't exist any other plant that we've discovered yet. And why that's important is that we have these zombie cells that never die. And this actually helps the zombie cells get killed. So by using plants and using these foods this way, we can actually help deal with some of the hallmarks of aging using other strategies. Also, just the phytochemical pharmacy has to be part of your diet, all these are a little hermetic. You're saying, well, people say, don't eat vegetables because they've got poisons in them. Yes. But in little doses, it actually actually stimulates you to do the right thing. So intermittent fasting again is a technique, strength training is a technique. This is called Hermes. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. And it's a really important concept adversity, hormesis, same idea. It doesn't kill you, makes you stronger. Polar plunges, right? Like we did here, you know, hiking around the top deck, naked, like I did the other day. I almost make it. Saunas, which we've been doing a lot of here on the boat. Ten arctica. And there are things that really happen in here, biologically. I mean, for example, you produce heat shock proteins, which help re misfolded proteins, which is a big hallmark of aging. It increases your innate immune system. And the cold activates your sympathetic parasympathetic nervous system the right way and so many benefits. So, and brown fat gets activated, which increases your metabolism. So there's just so many techniques. They've been around forever. Ice plungers and hot therapies. This is a cell gym. This is essentially a hypoxia machine. So another hormone therapy where you go up to Mount Everest by some sticking on your face and then you come down and your blood saturation drops me down at 70s and it comes up, goes down and this your mitochondria, something's happening here. I got to get in gear and get myself in shape and make some new ones and clean out the old ones and get more efficient. And so it's actually a way to really really radically upgrade your mitochondria. And then there's hyperbaric oxygen. Which also does the same thing in their studies out of Israel where they're actually seeing the benefits of longevity from this. And essentially it's putting you in a tank that's used for diaries for the bends, but essentially it puts you under one or two atmospheres or more pressure and then pumps in a 100% oxygen. So it hyper oxygenates your system. We use this for wounds that won't heal for stroke victims. For example, we have a stroke. Part of the brain is in debt is sort of numb. And it's with the hyper oxygenation and hyperbaric pressure. You literally can wake up that there is CP kids walk out of these things. It's pretty impressive. There's ozone. That's another hormone therapy. We hear about the ozone layer over the NAR Arctic being destroyed because of fluorocarbons, but ozone is not bad. There's a lot of bad press, right? Ozone is going to kill you, don't use it. You ought to have your website. This is dangerous, not a medical treatment. And yes, if you, if you inhale ozone, it's very dangerous. But also, if you inhale water, it's very dangerous. It's called drowning. So it all matters where you put it. And ozone is one of the most powerful hormone therapies. It really saved my life when I was really sick. Matt uses it all the time. I'm just going to get talking about it a little more. Let him go talk more about it. There are abundance medics too. Things that help turn on good switches, like resveratrol, turns on circuits or fisting, which is from strawberries, also helps with longevity switches. Pomegranate, for example, has a compound in this turned into your lithium a if you have the right microbiome, you're left in a, then goes up into mitochondria. And helps do my topic and clean up mitochondria and also protein synthesis so builds a muscle. So basically you can not, but the thing is if you just eat pomegranate, you're more microbiome so screwed, there's a company that's actually derived this and then made your lip and a is how I take every day. Spermidine, which exactly comes where you think it from comes from. But another longevity, abundance for medic, vitamin D, fish oil, all the quercetin and bioflavonoid plants are also abundance medics. And then turmeric as well, which is really clear. And then it's really all about getting autophagy cleaning up your cells, recycling. So it's basically the dynamic between breakdown and buildup. Between adversity and abundance. So if you just have, for example, a certain longevity switch is turned on, turned off all the time. You're going to die. If you turn it off, mTOR all the time, you're vegan, let's say you never touch any protein, it will be silence, but then you won't make protein enough to survive. And you'll end up with sarcopenia and all kinds of other issues. So NAD is one of the key components that Matt used and I use basically to help regulate her two ends in these longevity switches. And it does so many things involve energy. It goes out and repairs DNA. It helps neurotransmitter function and it lengthens your telomeres that improve your immune system. And it depicts the works in your cells and your mitochondria. And this whole autophagy you think we talked about. Hormones, again, another big part of aging and how do we deal with optimizing our hormones, long conversation. But our sex hormones really need to be balanced as we age as menopause as andropause, and often we have high insulin levels. We have thyroid levels that aren't right. We have adrenal hormones that are overtaxes of stress. And all these effects. And one of the key ones is insulin, which is driven by a harsh sugar carb diet. And that's why a lot of people in longevity space are taking metformin, which is a cheap diabetes drug. It has side effects, but I'm still on the fence. By the time I get done my book, I'll have an opinion about it, but right now I'm not really excited about it because I think most of the gains that you can have from that, you can have a lifestyle. And they've done the diabetes prevention trial over 10,000 people years ago where they found that lifestyle metformin was better than the control group, but lifestyle was 58% better than metformin. So then there's really really cool stuff coming on the pike called rapper logs. And so we talked about those longevity switches. Imagine if you could switch them on without causing a problem without causing bad side effects. So in the 60s, a bunch of scientists went down on anthropologists, but scientists went down to look at what kind of compounds were in rapa Nui and they scratched the back of one of these statues. And they found a compound they called rapamycin, which they thought was going to be an antifungal drug. It's currently being used in immune suppression as an immune suppressant and transplant cases, but it's not really as real role. And in fact, the receptor on which it works is called the mammalian target of rapamycin. It's literally named after rapa Nui. And now they have some side effects. Some people are using them. I started trying them. I'm experimenting with them. But you have to be careful. They have some downsides. They're coming up with new rap logs that are select for better

"When the chromosomes start replicating, they can become zombie cells, which follow around your body, creating a whole cascade of inflammation. They never die. They just kind of cause more mess. And they shorten as we age, but there's many things that can link to them, exercise, meditation, love, healthy diet, a multivitamin. So they're not static. Anyway, these epigenetic changes are really key to understanding the way in which we can regulate our health long-term and how to influence our genes through epigenome. There's lots of ways to do it. There's mitochondrial therapies. There's hormetic therapies. There's ways to switch on the longevity switches, which we're going to get into called AMPK and mTOR and sirtuin genes. So how do we extend life? Well, this is the first data we first got on anything that really worked, which is calorie restriction. Now, I met a guy once who did calorie restriction. And I said, what are you for breakfast? He says, well, I'll leave 5 pounds of celery. I'm like, no thanks. I'm going to die soon. And so your hunger all the time, you're starting all the time. But what they found was that by calorie restriction, which is adversity, the body starts to kick in repair healing mechanisms that allow us to actually function at a much better rate. So we never had all the abundance we do now. We never had a buffet. We had to go hunt and gather and scrunch around and maybe we didn't have food moving in. So we have 200 or more genes to help us deal with starvation. And almost none that help us deal with abundance. So when you calorie strict, all these longevity switches get turned on, because it's a sign of, oh, I better go into survival mode, which is great. And it activates this process called autophagy. Who here has heard of autophagy? So autophagy is a very simple process of recycling. Your body is only recycling plant. And essentially, it envelops old cells and parts and puts them in a bubble called lyso. And then, and then they transport you another part of their body, another component of your cells. How lysosomes, which are full of enzymes, degrading enzymes. So basically, it's like recycling where they breaking apart into its component parts. And then you get to use those parts again. And that's really called autophagy. And it's so important because think about if you just cook and cook and cook in your kitchen, you never cleaned up. It's going to be a problem. So you've got to go through Facebook both autophagy and building. The key to understanding aging is not just over here, you should be vegan because meat activates mTOR and if you actually enter, you're going to die sooner, no. You need both my autophagy and the clean up and autophagy so repair. Which is a catabolic state. And you need, you need protein synthesis. You need to build new tissue and protein. So it's really about the dance of how to activate the switches in a way. Switches not too much. It's kind of like the Goldilocks effect. The worst thing is sugar. Sugar is the worst thing and has the most adverse effects on all the longevity switches, whether it's mTOR or CMD or sirtuins. And it is the central driver of aging period. So I know there's a lot of desserts out there, but I just think about their worth it. And the body is as we age, particularly because more and more. For people who are listening to this mark is a single handedly doing acupressure on me because I've got a little nausea. We're on 20 foot seas. He's moving the slides forward, but I'm doing good. You're not anymore? I mean, it's about half of what it was. So it's about a 5 out of ten. Okay, good. So I saw the barf bag go down to the floor. So that's good news. Okay. So sugar, sugar, sugar, sugar, any sugar flour, I've written dozens of books on this, read, you can read the ten 80 text diet, which talks about sugar a lot, or but your solution. But it's really the driver of so much. We now eat about a 152 pounds a year per person. We used to have 22 teaspoons a year as hunter gatherers. But what about proteins should we not be eating meat because meat is bad for the planet? It's bad for the animals. It's bad for humans, right? Not necessarily. It depends on what meat and how it was raised. And so forth. So regeneratively raised cow is very different than a feedlot cow. And one study, for example, they found that kangaroo me, which is available in Australia, Australia, they were able to do a study where they compared it to feedlot meat, and the feedlot meat raised inflammation and the kangaroo meat lowered inflammation. Same amount exactly gram per gram of protein. So it's the information in food that matters. This is such a key concept. If you learn nothing else today, learn that food is not just calories that is information. It's code. It's instructions. And it's literally programming every cell, every biochemical reaction in your body, every day, in real time, and it's talking to your microbiome too, and it's just, it's so important to think about your food as a pharmacy with an F one little geeky minute here, and they're going to be on some fun stuff. So these are the longevity switches. And I don't try to explain all of it. Read my book. It's coming out in February. But basically, scientists have discovered that there are these longevity switches that can be turned on and off by different inputs or outputs. So dietary restriction is one of the most powerful ones. So if you want to in my studies, you still like my third. And when yeast, they can do it by a thousand year of a thousand years and we'd be a 120. So mTOR, which we'll talk about in a minute is an important because it's really raised to protein synthesis, which is great. But if it's too much, it's not good. And so in order to initiate autophagy, which is a self eating recycling system, you need to shut it off. And the best way to shut off is to only overnight. You just take your 12, 14, 16 hour fast, which is not that hard. CMK, a lot of this research around in four minutes about this is really the blood sugar and insulin. These are two ends are massive DNA repair. Systems. And anti inflammatory systems, and they are very much activated by inhibited by sugar. You heard the red wine story, resveratrol. This is that story where they were able to extend life and found the rats and mice could drink all this wine and still be fat, but all their biomarkers were really healthy and they were more fit. They had better health, even though they drank the equivalent of 1500 bottles of wine. But unfortunately, it wasn't wine. It was the capsules. So don't try to do this at home. Muscle building and muscle as an organ is one of the most important things to think about as you age, because if you don't have that, you're in trouble. Because it's what drives people into frailty. The reason people end up in nursing homes is not because they have an illness because they can't get up out of chair. Like just a simple test like where you get up like this without holding on. They're going to have to go like this, right? And then you see the people do that. This is the beginning of the end and when they fall, it's a disaster. And body composition, we can measure now with a dexa scan. This is probably one of the most important tests. Look at where you're visceral fat at the organ fat. That's what causes all the problem. So exercise is the key to that. And then sleep is really important, but we won't talk about that on this ship. Meditation is, again, the key lifestyle factor to reset community, which we're all experiencing, which is really feeding our souls and helping us joy and happiness. I joined happiness is so important. And altruism. Altruism is actually a drug. It literally binds to receptors in your nucleus accumbens and activates the pleasure centers, the same as cocaine or heroin. So serving others loving others is actually medicine for you. Okay, now supporting healthy aging, adversity. I'm going to start frame the things that can be done that are coming down the track. There's a lot of

"Now let's get back to this week's episode of the doctor's pharmacy. So everything you're doing in real time is speaking to your genes. Every thought you have, every movement you make, everybody a food you eat. Every relationship or how you have all of it, all of it is influencing your DNA methylation patterns and your epigenome. And it's either creating health and disease or either accelerating your biological clock or reversing it. So we can reverse our biological clock. I just showed you my biological clock was 43. I'm 62. And I've been through I've been through mercury poisoning Lyme disease, but BCI autoimmune diseases, mall toxicity, everything. And I was surprised when I got that result. But rebuilding my health. And that's what's so amazing about the body. It has this, it has its own innate healing system that if we learn how to activate, the body knows what to do. That's what Matt and I do. We learn how to activate the body's own healing system. We don't use a ton of drugs. We use all these modalities that kind of trick the body into waking up to healing. And we literally can reverse the biological age. So why do we have all these hallmarks of aging? One of the reasons, well, it's our ultra processed food, which is killing people. It's 60% of our diet for every 10% of your diet. It's ultra processed food. Your risk of death goes up by 14%. It's all these toxins. There's 80,000 toxins that are being introduced in the environment and they're everywhere. I just checked my I just took my lab work and I like cadmium and mercury and land. I'm like, fine. Because I'm just exposed and I try to keep getting rid of it. The microbiome is one of the most important influences on our health because it's like it's almost like we're only there for them. We have 20,000 genes. There may have two or 3 million genes. And they're either making proteins. And if you did a blood test, up to a third or a half of all the analytes you'd find in your blood come from the metabolites of the microbiome, which is amazing and we're just beginning to understand and map this. And we can't really understand this. When you think about the thousands, tens and hundreds of thousands of molecules flooding around your blood, and you get like a lab test with three things on it or 15 or a hundred things on it. It doesn't really tell you what's going on. So big data and quantum computing will be able to figure this out. Also, food, food, food sensitivities. We all have leaky gut because of the processed food and the dye in the stress, the antibiotics. So often that leads to chronic inflammation, which really can be fixed. And it also not enough of the protective nutrients. It's not just what you're eating this bad. It's what you're not eating, that's good. So I believe we evolved coevolved in symbiotic with plants to use their intelligence. Their molecules to do things for us that our bodies are lazy and don't want to do. So for example, if you eat broccoli, it activates an enzyme, glutathione peroxidase that increases glutathione, which is the most one of the most important molecules in your body for detoxification for a healthy aging for inflammation. It's the most powerful antioxidant you have. And it needs to be constantly recreated. And eating these protective foods like broccoli will do that. Or if you have cat catechins, which are in green tea, it activates other detoxification enzymes that maybe explains by Japanese or no mercury poison because they're drinking a ton of green tea and eat fish. One of the other major causes and probably not top of the list is loneliness. And isolation and disconnection. And on this journey to Antarctica that we're on, I think that we've all recognized that that is part of the solution is really finding a way for humans to connect to humans and reclaim their community. And I think I'm really impressed by some of the key leaders you like Randall omaze who's devoting his life to actually making this happen. So these again are the hallmarks. They cause will they cause things like diabetes and they cause, which is basically belly fat and all the consequences of insulin resistance and too much sugar and processed food. It basically creates this pre diabetes state, which ends up being the driver of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer's, they call it type three diabetes. So it's not a bunch of separate problems. It's sort of like the blind man in the elephant medicine. Chronic inflammation also is one of the big drivers, an inflammation, is one of the biomarkers of hallmarks of aging. But inflammation can be caused by many, many things, right? By your diet, lifestyle your thoughts, toxins, allergens, microbes. So it's important to really understand inflammation. Oxidative stress is part of the key. But oxidative stress is not necessarily a bad thing. We need it to activate certain healing things. We have a process called hormesis, which I'll go through in a minute. And we'll talk about how that works to use oxidative stress as a healing power. Mitochondria are really these little energy factories that are really turning out to be the key to understanding aging and a lot of the aging research is focused on how do we how do we heal mitochondria? How do we activate them? How do we turn on the longevity switches embedded in the mitochondria? They're longevity switches embedded in the mitochondria, that if we learn how to activate, will extend their life by up to a third or more. And this is really what's so exciting. And they're not that crazy things to do. And we'll talk about what those are. Telomeres. There's a little end caps at the shoelaces, a little plastic thing at the end of your shoelaces. Thank you. And so the ag la at the end of your shoelace gets afraid and comes off and then what happens is all the DNA is freight and then it becomes danger.

"Cure for Alzheimer's. There's been 2 billion study $2 billion plus over 400 studies on Alzheimer's and they came up with babkas and basically if you get three more months at home, that's what went. So what really are the hallmarks of aging? There are other things. There are things that we now begin to understand about epigenetic changes, which is the epigenome is the Uber genome. For example, your genes are your book of life. You have 20,000 genes. And every cell of your body or all the genes for your entire body. So in your muscle cell, there's your brain or your eye or whatever, but those genes are silent. So the body knows how to regulate all that. But what happens is as we get older and the epigenome is like the piano player genes are the keys, the epigenomes like the piano player that then determines which song gets played and determines the actual outcome of what's going on with your health. And so we can those changes in the epigenome are influenced by our lifestyle, but what we do and what we think, what we feel by our neutral status. And those epigenetic changes, those marks is what causes aging in us over time. And that's how we measure our biological age. Telomere shorten. We have poor communication with cells. We have proteostasis goes wrong. We have glycation, which means sugars and proteins come up like creme brulee in your body. Mitochondrial energy center doesn't work. We got zombie cells. It just don't die and create inflammation. This whole inflammatory cascade, and we have genes have become more injured and unstable and get more hits and stem cells get exhausted. So these are the problems aging scientists are working on now. But what they're missing, what they're missing is that underneath those, these are just upstream from the diseases. What's upstream from the hallmarks of aging? What are the real causes? One of the root causes of aging. Which if you consider DT. So this is what we call the functional medicine matrix. And these are the systems we look at in order to identify how to address a patient with all the predisposing factors, and we look at all the underlying lifestyle factors. We look at their genetics. And we see how do those influence these 7 basic biological networks, assimilation, which is your gut, defense and repair your immune system, energy your mitochondria, and detoxification, how you get rid of waste internal external transport circulation. And then communication, which is hormones that are transmitters, cytokines, and your structural system from cellular sub cellular structures and membranes. I mean, if your cell membranes are made up of Crisco instead of fish oil, they're going to work very differently. And they're going to have very different functions. And that's really why we call it functional medicine because it's about how your body functions and how to get it functioning better and understanding why it doesn't function. And then it's also to your biomechanical structure, which is what Matt is so amazing at. So people go, I got my genes, I got bad genes, my grandmother's got this. My grandfather's got that. Not so. And this is the Indians a hundred years ago, a thin fit healthy. And simply a hundred years, they've consumed our culture, and their obese. We call this commode bod. The reservations, because of the government commodities, basically the second genocide we've given them white fire, white sugar, white flowers, government surplus commodities, which they eat because they're poor, and they end up looking like this and having a life expectancy of 46. And everybody's got diabetes by the time they're 30 and it's pretty bad. But this is what's really remarkable about the science of aging. This is one of the first studies done on epigenetics, which Randy journal. We basically took identical agouti mice. There's supposed to look like the yellow guy fat diabetic hypertensive super unhealthy. And he decided for the mother. They were genetically identical, but he was going to give them some special things called methylation nutrients, methylation is essentially a carbon and three hydrogens. It's like the change of currency, the coin of the realm of our biology. And getting exchanged a million times a second. But it's really important in DNA regulation and DNA methylation and making energy and more transmitter. I mean, it's really important. And so he gave them basically B vitamins and some other methylating supporting nutrients. And instead of the most looking like the big fat one, it was just any Brown one. Same genes. And this is just remarkable. And this is the beginning of the field of epigenetics. And this is a little more technical I want to get into right now. But essentially, there's many ways that our epigenome can be influenced

And so the adventists lived also very long, Loma Linda is one of the blue zones, so what should you do? Should you be vegetarian or should you only meet? Well, we're going to get into that. And the truth is we're out of where you are in your life. If you're body looks like the guy on the left, it can look like the guy on the right with the right application of nutritional science and exercise and activating the longevity switches. This guy was supposed to worker. 65 retired in France and became biker for the first time at 65. And competed and was riding at a 105 years almost 14 miles an hour for an hour. I mean, that does not even. 14 miles an hour, if you bike is not slow and he's running on a velodrome track. And then limits of longevity, the bowhead wheels we found how books in them from the whale hunting days that recently discovered. So at least they can leave a couple hundred years and the Greenland sharks, the 400 years the Galapagos tortoises barely age at all. They don't really age. And they can live to be 200 or more. And the problem is their current medicines, we're practicing whack them on whack a mole of medicine. We're treating diseases and not getting to the root cause. So what Matt and I do is root cause medicine. It's activating the body's own healing systems. Regular medicine has never actually had any insight into health. If you go to your doctor and say, can you please measure my health? Well, I can look for tests that will tell you if you're not healthy, but otherwise you're healthy. But that's not true because there's so many layers. There's 37 billion billion chemical reactions in your body every second. And you're getting maybe 30 or 40 analytes in a lab test. And most of those are only abnormal if you're really sick in the hospital. So we really need to get away from the single diagnosis just because you know the name of the disease doesn't mean you know what's wrong with you. You could have depression, but it could be ten different causes or rheumatoid arthritis and have ten different causes. So we want to do is have our health span equal our lifespan. How many years were lives, our lifespan? How many years were healthy and active is our health spin? The average Americans. Lifespan is 70 something their health span is much less. They have actually 16 or 17 years where their health is born declining. And so there's this concept called compression of morbidity. And this was from James freeze from Stanford, who looked basically like the people's health and longevity. And he found that if they practiced three behaviors, they exercised, they kept their ideal body weight, and they didn't smoke. They died very late, they died painlessly cheaply and quickly. Whereas everybody else who was not doing those behaviors died long slow, painful, expensive deaths. So if we learn how to activate healing in health in this population, we can actually we can actually create a vibrant healthy group of elders who can contribute wisdom knowledge and be actively enjoying their lives. This is a really exciting concept here, which is longevity escape velocity. Longevity escape velocity is the idea that at some point in the near future and some scientists are saying ten, 15, I don't know, 20 years that accelerations in science is based on exponential changes in what we're doing and understanding will literally allow you to escape death that you'll reach a point where every year we keep making new discoveries that will prolong our lives. And you can't really understand exponential change very easily. If I said, I'm going to give you a penny today. It'll double tomorrow, and at the end of the month, the double every day, you can keep whatever you're left over. Or I'm going to give you a dollar a day for 30 days. What do you want? What do you guys are all smart? A penny. A penny will turn into $10 million. 30 exponential steps aren't 30 a hundred yards, 30 exponential steps are, I think, 24 times around the earth. So that's the rate of change happening now. A functional medicine for those of you who had heard about it essentially is a system of thinking. It's not a theory. It's not a treatment test, anything. It's simply a framework, an operating system for filtering data based on system biology and how things actually work in the body. And there are 5 converging trends that are going to change everything we think about medicine and health. But first is what we call network medicine systems medicine, functional medicine. It's understanding the body's an ecosystem that it's everything connects to everything else. It's all one. It's not, it's like Einstein said this. I'm not interested in the spectrum of this with that element. I'm interested in the thoughts of God. The rest are details. And so what are the thoughts of God and how we were designed or where we believe? And it's really an ecological system that we have. It's just like a rainforest, but the amazing thing is we are the earth and the earth is us. There's no difference. We are intersecting at every level every minute with every thing that's going on around us and what's going on in the earth, whether you like it or not, even if we live in an apartment city building. The second trend is the omics revolution, but really unpack the human genome, microbiome, our proteome, our transcriptome, all the homes, right? Which is the effect of our social interactions and community on our genes. And then that also is added to by quantified self data, these continuous glucose monitors, the aura ring, a sleep map, they're coming. And all this data is going to be providing millions of data points in real time about us and how we feel and what's going on in our biology. And that is going to inform through machine learning and big data and AI with all the other omics data and the frameworks of network medicine, a whole new way of thinking about everything. Now, most of us think that our genes, we got bad genes and

"And if you care about living longer, loving longer, serving longer, and finding out the secrets to how to age backwards. Listen up, because this is a conversation you're going to want to hear because it's with my colleague, friend, my own doctor, Matt cook, who has started one of the most remarkable health centers in the world called bio reset medical in Los gatos, California. It's my home away from home. And he has helped me heal so many of my patients that get stuck and he's integrated so many different techniques, technologies and science in order to regenerate and repair and rebuild people's health back from the ground up and it's an incredible gift and he's a selfless, loving, brilliant man, and I am just so lucky that you're on the podcast today. Thanks so much to your two kind. If I'm at all less coherent than normal, I'm struggling with nausea. We're on Drake's passage. Halfway through, 20 foot C's, but it's kind of amazing. And it's been a highlight. It's been probably the highlight of my life coming on this trip. There's a lot of thank you so much. Matt has not taken a vacation in ten years. He's a scientist and doctor dedicated like I've never seen anybody. He wakes up from the mini wakes up to mini goes to bed. He's on taking care of patients 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and then barely has something to eat. Listen to the grateful Dan goes to bed. Pretty much. All right, so let's get right into it. How do we live longer? In order to love longer in order to serve longer. As a friend asked me the night, what's the point of living long? I think the point of living long is to be able to be fully in contribution to life and not be sick and old and decrepit. And you don't have to be. This is my recent test. I'm 62. And my biological age is almost 20 years younger. And I intend to try to get that down to about 25. This was me 20 years ago at 40. Not overweight, but over fat and definitely not as healthy as I was now, because I learned more and more and more. Now Woody Allen basically says, I don't want to be active achieving mortality through my work. I want to achieve by not dying. I don't want to live on in the hearts of my countrymen. I want to live on in my apartment. Now, there are many I'm just going to take you through quake two here. This is a blue zones. I spent a bunch of time in the last summer, and it was extraordinarily beautiful. This is Sardinia. There's shepherds primarily, their animals graze on wild plants, they make fresh cheese and wine, they kind of wine, so soils are really rough there. It's a mountain and have high levels of antioxidants and maybe contribute to their health benefits. They have a longest lived males in the world. And centenarians. And they make this cheese from milk of sheep and goats that have been eating a whole variety of wild plants. It turns out that these compounds that we've discovered in there are highly protective, the phytochemicals in the plants end up in the meat and the milk of the animals. This is a mind-blowing idea. So can you get your vegetables by eating meat? Kinda. Kinda. You get some of the most important benefits, which is they actually, and it means these are things that you can't grow food, right? These are high rugged mountainous regions. This is carmine who's literally stopped his car in front of us, made us get out and mention talk to him for like an hour. And then he took us to his farm. Where he's 85 years old and runs up and down. I couldn't keep up with him and was going up to a step with his sheep and he grows a huge garden and has animals and lives in community and he's just like, he doesn't even look like he's 80 anything. This is Julia. She's a 103 and three months as she made sure she told me. And it still working lives with her nieces and is actually making the doilies for weddings and stuff. This is Silvio, who had a ranch, a sheep farm between her sheep up at the top of the mountain, and they opened a little restaurant so we went up there and for this family all together and make ministry soup and

"Will be made available on doctor Hyman's website if you'd like to see the visual slides he references in his presentation. Hey everyone, it's doctor Mark. It's hard to overstate how important magnesium is for all aspects of our health. There is a long list of symptoms and diseases that can be treated and even cured with magnesium. In fact, way back when I was an emergency room doctor, magnesium was a critical element of our care. We used to treat all kinds of conditions from arrhythmia to constipation to preeclampsia, and even seizures. It's really essential to our health and our well-being, and yet over 80% of the population doesn't get the magnesium they need on a regular basis. Now, this is a problem because magnesium deficiency can increase your risk of all diseases and keep you from performing optimally. But even more critically, there's not just one type of magnesium. There are 7 different types that we need in order to ensure both our health and vitality are being strong. Now, I'm normally a big advocate of getting as many of our nutrients as we can through a well balanced diet. But in this case, it's almost impossible to get enough magnesium intake through your food alone because our soil is so overworked. And mineral depleted and lacking organic matter, which helps the plants get the minerals from the soil. Fortunately, by optimizers has the solution. Their magnesium breakthrough supplement is the only product in the market with all 7 types of magnesium, and especially formulated to reach every tissue in your body to provide maximum health benefits. By optimizers, magnesium, breakthrough gives you access to the full spectrum of magnesium, which can dramatically improve your overall health from reducing stress to improving sleep and boosting your energy levels. Right, now you can try by optimize your magnesium breakthrough and any other by optimizes product for 10% off. Just go to mag breakthrough dot com. Dot com slash hymen and use the code hymen ten to boost your intake of magnesium and start feeling better today. Now I know a lot of the listeners of this podcast are functional medicine practitioners like I am. And I absolutely love the community of support that we built together over the years. I also know that as functional medicine practitioners, we need the right information to be able to form and optimal health plan for our patients.
"matt cook" Discussed on Inside Supercars
"Welcome to inside tuberculosis journey went like Craig, ravela and we're talking here with Matt cook, who's had his first taste as a race weekend as a team principal. And I know that you did have your hands in your pockets for a while. That was the sort of scene that a team principal should have, isn't it? Yeah. It's hard to not get in and get stuck into it, but yeah, obviously in a non performance role now, there's things that you have to do and rules you have to abide by. So yeah, a little bit of hands in pocket, but that was also because of the horrible cold weather. And of course, your second weekend as team principal will be a different one because the man who owns the team instead of where he's at heath could park raceway this weekend, he'll be there, drag racing in the track opposite, and then be sending beside you. I imagine that you'll enjoy the process. Yeah, very, very, very busy for him, double duties, and as you said, driving and then coming back to be the team owner, that hopefully not hopefully. I'm pretty sure he's going to spend a fair bit of time with the drag car and he'll come over in the mornings, I think, before the sun gets dark and he starts to race his drag car.

I try to indicate when it's a pre flight, mid flight or post flight. Modality, but I'm going to just lay it all out and you can do with it what you will. Before and after I fly, I do my best to get a nutrient IV. So there's a place here in Austin called alive and well. They do great micronutrient IVs, so I'll do things like vitamin C, glutathione, all the B vitamins, all that stuff, something like a Meyer's cocktail. And I like to just get juiced up with as much nutrition as I can before I put myself under the stress of airports and airplanes. Now, unfortunately, at the time of this recording, in many places in the world, we are still required to wear masks when we get on an airplane and I do not support this practice or requirement whatsoever because I don't believe in the validity scientifically of doing so not to mention being coerced into something that one doesn't want to do is outside of my value system. That said, I have no problem putting on a mask when I fly because I don't use a graphene filled nanobot filled potentially. Medical mask. What I use is a whole head hood that also covers my nose and mouth from a company called no choice and it's made from silver, which blocks the EMF.

"If mauled gets into the sheetrock, often in their bacteria in there. And so they're sort of constellation of different microbes that secrete sort of a plume of toxins that get into the air and then people breathe that in. And so then when that happens, then sometimes people will have a biofilm in the nose or they'll have a biofilm in the gut and they'll start to breathe and some of these toxins and those toxins will start to live. And then basically take up start renting space and your biofilm and living inside you. And so if there's mold living in you, then what happens is mold will start to secrete these mycotoxins into your bloodstream. And so then what we do is we see people and try to get a sense of the story we find out what they've done in terms of testing. Try to build a model of what's happening with that. And then we do some testing. So I actually will test there's a test called Mark ons to see if you have a biofilm in your sinus. And so send nasal swab this kind of similar to a COVID test. We'll do a urine test, and we'll see if there are urinary mycotoxins. And there's a couple different companies that we use. One of them is called real-time and one of them is called grid plans. And vibrant America is another one that is coming out with testing. And we're using the we also will do an antibody test to see if your body is making antibodies to make a toxins. And just like we do a test to see if you are making antibodies to COVID to see if a, maybe the vaccine worked or B, maybe you get exposed to COVID. And we want to find out if that actually COVID or not, we could do an antibody test and see if your body's making antibodies to it, then we know you must have been exposed to COVID..
