Ep. 25: Dr. Nathan Bryan - Nitric Oxide: The Magic Molecule

"Hey everybody I. Hope you're doing well I. Want you to know that I'm coming along with my my broken foot. The stitches came out on Tuesday I started swimming again and I feel like I've really gotten over the hump with with this broken foot. I'm going to have to be. On crutches or on a little stroller for another month as I'm keeping weight off it, but things are, things are looking good. This episode is going to a doozy. If you're getting ready to pop an an asset or take a swig of your favorite mouthwash. Wait hold up just a moment with me. Here's why. If you listen to last week's episode of the plan strong podcast with my father. You know he is a fine matic about boosting your nitric oxide in order. To basically bump up the production of your healthy endothelial cells. Why what exactly is this miracle molecule? It may be new to you, but no this our body's ability to produce nitric oxide is paramount. To staving off killers like stroke heart disease. And other vascular complications like men. Erectile dysfunction. Today I take a deep dive on the subject of nitric oxide with the preeminent expert on the subject and the author of the Nitric Oxide Solution Dr Nathan Brian. My father has filed his work and I knew that I had to have him on the show. To Open Your Eyes and mine on what seems like a very complex topic. Fortunately, we break it down into interesting actionable takeaways for you. What is nitric. Oxide And No, it's not the laughing gas that you get at the dentist office. What happens to our body's ability to create nitric oxide, and why does it diminish as we age? What foods can we eat to pump up the production of this magic molecule? And why do so many common over the counter products like mouthwash and assets antibiotics crush. Our body's ability to produce nitric oxide. Dr Nathan Bryant says. Crank diseases is caused by two things. And two things only one the body missing something that it needs or to. It's exposed to something that doesn't need. Today we WANNA. Give you what your body needs. So listening closely and say why es Yes to N. O., nitric oxide. Side note here. The initial interview took place at my office in February prior to covid nineteen. Since then there has been a tremendous amount of research into the subject of nitric oxide in preventing treating the corona virus, especially in the African American population who? As the data show are the most vulnerable. You WanNa, stick around for the quick bonus segment at the end as I caught up with Dr Brian. Just last week the zoom. Enjoy. If, YOU WANNA learn more about the wonders of nitric oxide and all things plant-based, I, invite you to join us for upcoming plans stock twenty twenty weekend, where my father will be giving his paramount lecture on preventing and reversing heart disease. This online learning weekend is packed, was science and practical application? And it's a chance for the whole household to learn together visit Plan Stock Twenty Twenty Dot com today to learn more. Right I. Am here with Dr Nathan Brian Nathan and I We actually. Got To know each other or have got to know each other a little bit because one of your business partners. A man named Bill huff reached out to me because he really wanted to get in touch with my father. Who has I'm sure you know is a huge fan of nitric oxide. And, so I basically brokered the phone call made it happen, and while I was listening to the conversation that you were having with my father. I was like holy smokes. I've got to get this guy on the plan. Strong podcast because he is. Probably the foremost authority on the planet on Nitric Oxide. And everything about nitric oxide which? My father refers to as the the magic molecule. I think you refer to it as the magic molecule, and it seems like most Americans. Don't know what it is what it does. How important it is to disease prevention. So I I'd love to spend the next thirty minutes or so with you. Talking about your what you've discovered since plunging yourself into the the study of nitric oxide, and how our listeners at home can can benefit from from this knowledge what they can do to increase their nitric oxide production. Make sure that they're not somehow. Disrupting the production and things of that nature, so for starters. What is nitric oxide. Gets a very good question. Recognized Scientific and medical community is one of the most important molecules produced in humans. So it's a gas. It has a half-life of less than one second, but it's produced in the lining of the blood vessels where regulates blood, flow and oxygen delivery responsible for maintaining normal blood pressure. It's an euro transmitted in the central nervous system. It's our immune system fights off invading pathogens. So when you lose the ability to make this critical magic molecule, a lot of things go wrong, so you lose your blood. Pressure goes up. Lose the regulation of blood flow. You develop erectile dysfunction vascular dysfunction. He developed. Cognitive disorders stood the neurotransmitter function in the central. Nervous system is post and then you become somewhat immuno-compromised, because your immune system can't generate nitric oxide to fight off some pathogens, whether it's bacteria, viruses or fungal infections. That's kind of the basis of what nitric oxide is and does. And So I mean if this is. Considered one of the most important medical discoveries in the last one hundred years. Why is it that if we were to go? You know talk to let's say. We went down to whole foods market right and we asked one hundred people. Do you know what nitric oxide is I'd bet you ninety would say I have no idea. Are you talking about the laughing gas at the? ready to the dentist or They don't know I mean. Why do you think that is? Well. Historically we know that it takes on average seventeen years for new discoveries to become so called standard of care or aware to the public. We're about twenty years after the Nobel Prize was awarded and probably thirty years after the discovery of nitric oxide. So even that is a little bit slow based on the average. And I think the reason that is is that clinicians don't use this as part of their initial screening labs that you can go if you can't go to your physician, say Hey, doc! What are my nitric oxide levels? He can tell you your vitamin. D levels your cholesterol all that, but there's no commercial labs that will tell you what your nitric oxide levels. So, that's the number one and number two. There's really no nitric oxide based therapies on the market that even if they did diagnose nitric oxide deficiency, there's really nothing on the market in. Form of drug therapy that corrects this one thing I've learned. The physicians don't like to diagnose something they can't treat. Effort to that really we've been slow and developing drug based drug therapies. That correct nitric oxide deficiency zero way of. If I wanted to go down and. figure out a way to measure Mo, the nitric oxide that I have coursing throughout my body. Is there a test or something I can do? That was a question that we were faced with over ten years ago when we developed a nitric oxide, technology brought to market, and that was the number one question. How do I know if I need this? And there was really no standard lab so I developed a celebrate. Test Strip. And, so this is a color metric semi quantitative test that you supply your saliva to the end of this test strip and. It's some old chemistry that if it turns Dark Pink, you know that you see your body is making sufficient nitric oxide if it doesn't turn colors, tells us that your body's nitric oxide deficient, so that's kind of a quick point of care. Is a pretty accurate it is. It is pretty accurate, so if if you don't turn that. Strip pink than your body is nitric oxide deficient? There is no false negative. But what it doesn't tell us why. Your body's nitric oxide deficient right, but then we can start to interrogate these different pathways and figure out exactly what's going on in your body and then take the steps to correct them. But there are some false positives for instance in. We see this quite often. Patient is clinically sick. They have high blood pressure erectile dysfunction. They have diabetes, and they're just sick, but yet they spit on the test strip and turns dark pink. Well that tells us that the clinical symptoms actually outweigh the biochemical test and what we're finding is that these patients who are clinic who who show all the hallmark clinical symptoms of nitric oxide deficiency, but the testers Dark Ping. That they probably get an active world infection. May Be symptomatic or symptomatic, because there's an local activation of the immune system. That's generating a lot of nitric oxide either on the pair pair ginger tissue whether it's Ginger Vitus. Period on titus or get an active infection, so that's a local immune response. It's not really reflecting systemic bioavailability. So you talk about. In one of your several books about how as we age our nitric oxide production typically decreases. Great why why is that? Well, there's two ways the body nitric oxide. In these discoveries over the past probably twenty twenty five years, the first pathway is through an enzyme that's found in the lining of the blood vessels. and. So veterans called Oxide synthase. It sounded in the theol- sales, and that's really the age related. Production mechanism that declines the older we get. So we know that, usually we lose about ten to twelve percent of that per decade, so by the time we're forty or fifty years old. We only have about fifty percent of the nitric oxide. We have when we were younger. And, so that's bona fide verified scientific data, and there are a number of things that's on average I should say, but we now know that as these new. Diagnostic or medical devices come to market that tell US vascular age. We're now seeing. You know eighteen to twenty year old kids with vascular age of a fifty or sixty year old. Bent to the contrary we're seeing fifty or sixty year old people with a vascular age of twenty or thirty year old, so just because you don't WanNa follow the average because the average person in America. Right I'm not interested in being average. The average person is overweight. Sick broke and unable to exercise perform to their full potential, so we have to figure out. How do we get away from deviate from that average? And so the older we get the standard cardiovascular risk factors. Smoking decreases nitric oxide production. Eating. You know an inflammatory diet processed foods things like that 'cause in the thehill dysfunction. So all those standard cardiovascular risk factors lead to a decrease in nitric oxide production, sedentary lifestyle, so that's the pathway that gets less and less with age. But this backup redundant pathway that we can use through diet. Primarily through the plant based Diet Green leafy vegetables that are enriched inorganic nitrate. We've recognized a pathway in humans that can utilize the nitrate. To Cyril reduce it down to nitric oxide. But so. It is important. It's good provides benefit, but there are a number of steps in that pathway that are required for patients to get the benefit of a plant based Diet. A nitric oxide benefit of the plant based Diet right so there's so you're saying. There's a number of steps that are required when you're eating. Let's just say plant strong rang a lot of. Your huge fan of right. And and what are some of those steps so that our listeners can maximize those stops? Well there's. There's many we're learning many caveats to this number one. We've quantified the Mount of nitrate in green leafy vegetables. Both conventionally grown and organically grown. In what we publish US I think in two thousand fifteen, but we found that there are regional differences, so if you bought celery or Kale or Broccoli in Dallas versus New York L. A. Rally Chicago, there's as much as one hundred fold difference in the amount of nitrate in that green vegetable. That's silver straight. It's farming practices. It's amount of nitrogen in the soil. It's the time of harvest. There many things. And so those are conventionally grown. Then we also tested these against organically grown vegetables, which everybody thinks is good. They're good because a free of pesticides, herbicides and other. But the problem is. We found that they have about ten times less nitrate than conventionally grown. Why's that? Well because I think to get an organic label, there's restrictions on nitrogen based fertilizers. You put in the soil. So you can add compost, you can add manure. There's no standardization of nitrogen in the soil so when soils become depleted in Nitrogen Then there's less nitrogen for the plant to take up. There's less nitrate in vegetable when you eat it. So, organic is good that eliminating some bad things, but organic is not so good in the fact that it's really difficult enough organic vegetables to get sufficient, nitrate. To feel this nitric oxide pathway, so that's one. There's no standardization so just because you're eating a lot of Kale or Broccoli. Your several didn't necessarily mean you're getting sufficient nitrate yet to produce the vascular effects of nitric oxide. So that's one. That's a huge problem. There's a whole field of agronomy that has to do better on standardizing that process. Then number two ninety. It would be nice to know. WOULDN'T IT IF You know when I'm picking up my My bunch of Kale. if there was a sign that let me know roughly how much nitric oxide was. Well, it's really nitrate is the stable. Yeah, yes, yes, yes, nitrate, yeah. I think there's a way that there has to be some standardization of that because the other important thing is that without? Many. Other nutrients micro nutrients and vitamins that are a assimilated individuals require nitrogen. In the soil is deficient in nitrate that vegetables going to be deficient nitrate, but it's going to be deficient in things. Chromium Manganese magnesium these trace minerals. so that's the way that you could standardize. Obviously, the nutrient density of a lot of these vegetables so that's number one. It's a high variability on the vegetables street. The number two nitrate is inert in humans, so humans do not have the genetic or instamatic capacity. To metabolize nitrate into. Nitric Oxide. So, this is one hundred percent dependent upon bacteria, primarily oral bacteria and some gastrointestinal bacteria that we're finding as we go from the mouth all the way down to the anus. We we can interrogate this system. But here's the problem. There's two hundred million Americans that wake up every morning. Use Antiseptic mouthwash. In that is doing more harm than good I think it's with good intent because people don't want the people wake up with bad breath. But we've published the that. When you use a mouthwash blood pressure goes up. And this is a fundamental problem in American society because to edit three wins. have an elevations in blood pressure. That's the number one modifiable risk factor for heart disease. So the fact that you use mouthwash and your blood pressure goes up, told us that there's an important connection between the oral microbiome. And systemic blood flow and blood pressure regulation. And then the other thing is you know another. Two hundred million Americans are on an antibiotic at any given time. In the year, so systemic antibiotics kill the. Good bacteria right so this two electron reduction of nitrate nitric oxide nitrite that happens in the oral cavity is disrupted by antibiotics mouthwash. which fifty percent of Americans are on at any given time? That's right, so you can be doing all the things that you supposed to do. In fact. I was on the doctor show a couple of months ago where it was. We recognize that if you use mouthwash, you actually lose the vascular benefits of exercise. So think about this. You could be doing everything that we've known has been healthy for hundreds of years. Moderate exercise and a plant based Diet. But if you use mouthwash, you're not gonNA get any of the vascular benefits of either of those. So that's a fundamental think groundbreaking observation and I think it's the reason that some people respond to plant based Diet, and they can lower their blood pressure other people. You don't see any change in. It's fascinating. So, what is the solution there then when it comes to the mouthwash Just you know, brush your teeth. Can You bring your teeth or is there anything with Floride I know? I'm a big proponent of brushing your teeth, your. Teeth, but you have to use a fluoride free toothpaste, because like free toothpaste, fluoride is an. Anti, crabby, okay, okay, and it's also a neuro toxin, but so yeah I tell people brush your teeth. Brush your tongue in the bugs. That were interested in that responsible for this. Dorsal part of the tongue so there's a lot meaning what Mingo very back of the bag near the gag reflex. Okay, so you can brush your tongue, but just don't gag yourself. Too So that's an important consideration and then the other huge problem. is so that that gets us from nitrate tonight, try. To get us from nitrite to nitric oxide Riccar, stomach acid. And we've got over two hundred million Americans that are using an acids. That's just prescription. Proton pump inhibitors. That's not counting. It's very difficult to quantify the amount of over the counter purchases for things like privacy policy. these analyses for people that have reflux. Disease, and so does that then wipe APPs. Wipe out the gastrointestinal You completely eliminate the blood pressure lowering effects of both nitrate nitrite. Yeah, and these drugs also further inhibit the vast production of. So if you're on an anna acid, particularly a proton pump inhibitor like members, all those are the. First. They were prescription only drugs. Now you can buy over the counter. But those basically shutdown, nitric oxide production from both pathways, and now we have an we. We've known for probably five or six years that people who have been on an acids for three to five years have about thirty five percent, higher incidence of heart, attack and stroke. And no one made that connection because. Wouldn't held a stomach acid having to do with heart, attack and stroke. Well now we know what to nitric oxide related phenomenon while so. Two hundred people use in acids. Two hundred million people use Proton pump in. Math Weiss another two hundred million people using antibiotics. That's more than the population of the US now. There's some overlap in those obviously. But what that tells us is that no wonder it's not a surprise to me. That cardiovascular disease remains the number one killer of men and women worldwide. It's not surprising to me that two out of three Americans have innovation and blood pressure. Over fifty percent over the man over the age of forty reports, some degree of erectile dysfunction in Tabasco problem. It's loss of nitric oxide. I think the numbers are probably close to seventy five or eighty percent, and that's over forty over the age of forty, eight or forty and. I'm not mistaken the one area of the. Male anatomy has more endothelial cells per square inch than any other is the penis. So to get an erection that's basically in engorgement of blood flow to get blood flow. You have to have a dilation of those blood vessels to have dilation of blood vessels. You have to be able to make nitric oxide if you can't make nitric oxide, none of that happens right, and it's the same thing. It's not just the women in the clitoris. It's a highly asked raised organised women to have an orgasm. To have an increase in pressure that increase in pressure from an increase in blood flow that increase in blood flow comes from nitric oxide can't make. None of that happened, so let me ask you doctor, so let's say that I was a forty eight year old male coming to you with. Erectile dysfunction I'm currently eating the standard American Diet using mouthwash.on antacids a little bit of antibiotics. You know What prescription would you give me to try and get? GET BACK! My you know my reality. Will there's no prescription that can overcome physiology right? Prescription drugs are typically inhibitors of certain biochemical reaction. Or stimulators of some enzyme this probably not working. So what we have to do it in no matter what the clinical presentation is. My philosophy is that chronic disease caused by two things and two things only number one. Your body's missing something that it needs and number two. You're exposed to something that it doesn't need. So then, we have to just go off the list. Okay for taking mouthwash. You have to stop. If, you're taking an acid, you have to stop if you take any of these things that disrupt nitric oxide. If you're not getting up and moving and having physical exercise, then you have to get your body moving. So that's kind of the process of eliminating the things that are disrupting nitric oxide production now that those kind of unlocked the brakes. What can we do to stimulate? Production. So, then I would say you have to. You have to exercise I would recommend a plant based Diet. That's enriched in inorganic nitrate. or Another some technology on the market. That's very effective supplementation. That's been shown in. Peer reviewed randomized placebo controlled clinical trials to restore nitric oxide production. So that's kind of. The Path that I would take, and once you restore nitric oxide production you you, you gain the ability to regulate blood flow. Erections get better in both men and women. Blood pressure becomes more normalized, and so everything works better if you can't get oxygen and nutrients to every cell in the body. That cell is going to become dysfunctional. When those cells become dysfunctional, the organ tissue, and that's the basis for disease. Let's let's back up just for a second What in the world got you so passionate about? Nitric oxide that you made this. Your kind of you know up to now your life's work, it's. All I've done in my twenty years of academia. It happened when I was a student at Lsu School of Medicine back in two thousand, a couple of years after the Nobel Prize was awarded. And Louis Narrow, one of the gentleman who shared the Nobel Prize came in gave a lecture to the student body at at the LSU medical school. And Billy told us the story of his discovery of nitric oxide. Then I had a chance to have dinner with him that night and s some fundamental questions. About what is this nitric oxide molecule? And why is it important and? He told me that he was still quite surprised that Nobel. Prize had been awarded number one and then number two that he actually. Nobel prize. But that we didn't know when this was I guess right at two, thousand, two, thousand one. There were no technologies to detect quantified nitric oxide in humans, even animals for that matter. Then number two. No one knew how to correct this insufficiency. And, so he thought you know there's kind of this. Rare Blue Ocean out there of a lot of unknowns and for me. That was I opening an important because. I recognize then that if we could figure out. How the body makes nitric oxide. What goes wrong and people that can't make it. And then hopefully have the technology to restore a repair, these pathways in the human body that what he was telling me, nitric oxide did and was. He will transform public health. In so you kind of took that as a challenge to go forth and find those answers. Yes, so basically all my PhD work was on analytical methods to detect and quantify nitric oxide in biological systems. In once we accomplish that then we also had the tools to start to develop nitric oxide based therapies. That led me to Boston. University Medical Center is a fellow, spent a couple of years there, and then I was recruited by Fred, read one of the other gentleman who shared the Nobel Prize to join faculty at Ut Medical School in Houston. And so that was kind of. That was. Important because Dr Miura had a drug discovery program at ut, he'd won the Nobel Prize this was about. Like eight years after he won the Nobel Prize, so we were tasked with trying to develop nitric oxide based therapies. In generate I found it fascinating. Because duck meat had won the Nobel Prize for the discovery of nitric oxide yet he had no methods. To detect nitric oxide. So. When I joined faculty, there I br had the only instrumentation that can detect and quantify nitric oxide. And! So then we got busy and found out these compositions of matter that would generate nitric oxide and we knew. How much nitric oxide, normal, healthy human being made over twenty four hours, and so we could dial in that level of nitric oxide. And we refine this, so we're period of. Ten years or so and really got to technology that did two things number one. Everybody can't make nitric oxide. We'd do it for you and then number two. It really fixes the reason. Your body can't make nitric oxide. Even in the face of a antiseptic Serena Botox so it overcomes a lot of the deficiencies, a lot of the hurdles that we as ourselves put put on ourselves because of the things we do. But I think still getting back to the physiology. In biochemistry of nitric, oxide, the best approach is to eliminate or remove the things in your life for body that are disrupting nitric oxide production. And, then giving the body what it needs to make its own truck side, that's the best approach. There's no better safety profile than that and it works. So you I? Think you mentioned earlier on the endothelial cells. My father is a huge fan of the Endo Cynthia. theol- Salads endothelial young. which as you I mean, explain I think is the innermost lining of all of our blood vessels right? Is this is this where a lot of our Nitric Oxide is produced from the endothelial cells. It is so we've quantified this so about fifty percent of our nitric oxide comes from the deal sales. And as I mentioned, that's the fifty percent of that goes away with time. And so that's the reason four age-related cardiovascular disease. So stop it so I'm a five year old right? Just by being a human being. In having you know. And endothelial cells coursing throughout my body is, are they just naturally producing nitric oxide? Just all day long. As long as that five year old is eating, a decent diet is active, but if you've got an obese five-year-old that sedentary. That's. Heating. Chips and cookies and Sodas all day. He has probably the endothelial health of fifty or sixty year old. So that tells us really the damaging effects of lifestyle on endothelial health biology. Okay, and so let's say on that five year old. That is eating really an atrocious standard American Diet. How quickly can I turn it around by? By. Bye Not disrupting the pathways and eating the right things, and all that I. turned around super-quick yet. Usually it happens in a matter of days I mean our bodies very resilient in the fact that it wants to do its job. The salesman of do their job. They just need. You have to give them what they need to do. Their job and get the stuff out of the way that's hitting. Do Their job so when you change your diet. I mean it's similar to smoking. You can stop smoking and see the benefits within twenty four forty eight hours later in terms of how you feel you breathing and a lot of that are basket related effects so same thing with diet if you eliminate all the post-prandial inflammation that occurs from eating a lot of process, nasty foods, the causes endothelial dysfunction. Then you don't get that inflammatory response and inflammations key driver disease so As I'm sure you may or may not know. We are. We are not fans of of meat. Right animal by products. You know we feel like they're. They're inflammatory they. They injure. OUR BODIES A multitude of levels, are you. Are you a fan of animal products? I mean if I came into you and I. Had Low nitric oxide. Would you say you know what go easy on the meat and really bump up the fruits, vegetables green leafy. But for me. It's a balance I mean personally I'm a meat eater, but before I eat meat, always eat a salad and I think these social norms are really preparing the body for this post-prandial. oxidative stress that occurs from processing animal proteins, or even there's some some post pringle, inflammation and. oxidative stress from digesting any any protein whether it's play Bass Strait, animal-based Mirror. The problem with most Americans isn't that they're over eating meat. It's they're under eating vegetables. So for me, you get a good mix of micronutrients and vitamins from a balanced diet. There are certain things that are in animal products that aren't in. Plant based diets. So you got you got couple of options you can supplement what's missing? Which I think is very important or eat a balanced diet, but I think there is no substitute for a balanced diet and moderate physical exercise and people are looking for appeal. They can take to overcome. That doesn't exist won't exist. So I'd love. In this book Netegh Oxide the Solution Right the no solution you talk about some really smark methods. Increase your nitric oxide production I'd love to throw out a couple that you write about and then if you could just expand on that trip, so the first one you talk about is breathe deeply. Sounds pretty simple. It's seems like a simple exercise right, but I don't think enough people are doing it. Well again that's very important, but these the Sinus epithelial cells contain the since I'm nitric oxide synthase just as the endothelial cells in the lining of the blood vessels. So if that enzyme is dysfunctional in the endothelial cells, the same conditions exist. That's GONNA. Make it dysfunctional epithelial cells. So debriefing is really not gonNA. Give you the optimal nitric oxide effect until you re couple that enzyme and make it functional. So that's number one same thing if the plant based Diet, but you're using mouthwash antibiotic. You'RE NOT GONNA get the benefit of the two very similar analogy, but here's the deal if you if you know that enzyme working or you employ the strategies that restore endothelial function. Then, simply deep breathing through your nose activates the mechanic receptors on these epithelial cells and generates nitric oxide. And that's why in those patients, simply deep breathing can lower your blood pressure. Can you give me an example like how often and my? Breathing in through my nose to my mouth. If you do that like ten times like an NF five second interval breathe in for five seconds. Hold it for a second. Yup, and then exhale for like five to six seconds. He can do that Tim Times, that's been shown to be very effective at lowering blood pressure provided. That enzyme is functional. That makes nitric oxide. Okay, all right hydration. He again. There's no substitute I. mean if your volume depleted and your sills are concentrated, not just in. Toxic byproducts that causes cells to be dysfunctional, so you have to hydrate, but here's the you have to drink good water. In. Most water is toxic municipal water I. Don't recommend anybody drinking municipal water. Get Fluoride in its chlorine has cut. Drug metabolites in it, so you're getting a lot of estrogens in the water. So public water is made to basically for safety anti microbial. They don't test for these drug metabolites that we urinate or defecate out that people are taking where you recommend. I I recommend highly recommend the water purification system that takes out the bad stuff. The chloride flooring the drug metabolites and basically puts back the trace minerals. This naturally found in water. Right and then Do you recommend a certain quantity of water, or is it just depend on active? You are and I think it'd be. Everybody's different. It's hard to make a one size fits. Offer any. Altering probably gallon half gallons of water day, but active. I work out by sitting Lassana sweats after rehydrate. I'm going to be getting to that. you say I mean again. These these are all sound like pretty simple solutions here, but so we started breathe deeply than we had hydration. Good Sleep. Could sleep is important. Sleep is when our body heals. And so if we don't get good sleep, our body doesn't have the chance to heal and. Doesn't perform. Optimize Shit, and then the other important components sleep is people with obstructive sleep apnea? Hugely increases your risk of heart, attack and stroke. And, so that pathway that makes nitric oxide in the lining of the blood vessels requires oxygen. And if you're hypoc during your sleep, because you're not breathing, then your body can't make nitric oxide. And it puts you at risk for cardiovascular so again there is a bona fide mechanism of action of why using Proton pump inhibitors leads to heart, attack and stroke. Bona fide mechanism of why having sleep. APNEA leads to heart, attack and stroke. It's all around nitric oxide Do you have any recommendations for people to get a good night's sleep? Most people eighty five percent of Americans are deficient in magnesium manganese. Them's involved I. Think hundred and eighty seven biochemical reactions in magnesium is coming. That tell people take five hundred milligrams of magnesium every night for you go to bid. If you're like most Americans. You're deficient, so it's. Going to provide you missing nutrient intuit's it's coming. It'll help you sleep better, and then you have to turn off your phones. TURN OFF! Exposure delights artificial lights, and that's not how our bodies evolved to sleep. We have to have a down period to prepare about for sleep. I love a cool environment. Is Sixty six degrees at night. Yeah, yeah! And you talked about this earlier a little bit, but you. good bacteria. And I think that maybe around. That would be everything that people are doing inadvertently. with the mouth wash the fluoride toothpaste with the antacids that are basically wiping out the good bacteria and preventing. That What would you call it? That reaction is occur despite osas Yup. So what I mean, we become a GERMOPHOBIC society especially now in this age of Krahn virus, and all these rapid. Epidemics of infectious bacteria or. So. Everybody's using mouthwash. Everybody's using the antibacterial soap. People Bay two three times a day. No one sweats. No one gets dirty. And there's consequences to that. Because the bacteria that live in and on our body outnumber own human cells tend to one. And most of these bacteria are in and on our body to do things that we as humans can't do. Or haven't yet evolved. So there's always collateral damage of this, so yeah you want to you know, be free from infectious and pathogenic bacteria, but the collateral damage of that is you're killing the good guys. and the good guys are providing. Your body was something that it needs. And so you have. You can't do this I mean like like if I get septic, I want an antibiotic I think it's it's a lifesaving procedure in pretty important discovery, but overusing antibiotics using mouthwash, using antibacterial soaps, lotions bathing two to three times a day, their consequences to them, and it's known that people who grow up in a rural environment. Harb have less allergies are typically more healthy than people who live in an. Urban Environment. And so I live out on. A fifteen minutes way out in the woods on hundreds of acres and. I'm quite observe. And so I've noticed Tina grown up around horses and cows and dogs that if you bathe, your dog or horse was the first thing they. Role in the dirt, they go role on the dirty right because they've recognized innately that you've just removed a lot of the good bacteria from their body through the soaps and shampoos what they do, they go out and re unoccupied themselves in the dirt. So, that's a very important observation. Yeah, and now we've got people who in sweating I think is overlooked. Thing no one sweats anymore. We get in our air, conditioned house and travel air, conditioned car, air, conditioned office and come home, one of the main routes of exposure of toxins through sweating. Yeah. We had a woman on the first season of of strong Dr. Robin Shut can who is a gastro in Toronto Gist and her motto is to. Eat clean live dirty. I like kind of a little bit like what you were just saying there. Dr Brian says dogs and other animals innately know how to give their bodies what they need by rolling around in the dirt. The same goes for their food. Why we're proud partner this. With wilder. Animals no better and they deserve better, which is why wilder dog food is packed with only clean protein sources and easily digestible ingredients for superior gut health.

Aging let's say I'm in. My Sixties Seventies. But I'm also eating this way and eating. Let's say you know. My Dad's protocol for his patients is sixty seven. Basically fist handfuls of some sort of Greenleaf dark green leafy every single day now. He I don't believe ever had the knowledge about. Organic versus conventional right in the difference there, but let's say you're. Let's say you were doing the conventional. You're doing everything correct. If I'm sixty. Seventy is the potential that I could have the nitric oxide production of a healthy twenty thirty year old. That is very possible provided. You're not doing the things that disrupt that metabolism into nitric oxide, right? It's a very and I think that's the reason that he sees such a disparity in seventy year old people. You get some seventy eighty year, olds who rolling in a wheelchair on oxygen. -pletely horrible quality of life to the country at sixty seventy year. Old Guys are playing golf every day. In fact, I just play golf with eighty five year old in West Palm Beach and he still drives about three hundred and forty yards. Remarkable. But he's active heats a good diet. He does a good clean life, and that's the difference so for me. It's not about. The quantity of life. It's the quality of life, but I think if you do the right thing is, you can have both right, so you mentioned this eighty four year old, driving the golf ball, three hundred and forty yards. So as an athlete right, I've been an athlete my whole life. Do you feel like I guess it's nitrates. NITRITES that can produce nitric oxide in me would be considered a performer a performance enhancer. No doubt about it. I mean the clinical published randomized controlled trials. Tell us that in fact, your ability to generate nitric oxide which is measured by plasma levels of Nitrite League predicts how well you can perform. And so if you supplement this Ir-, titrate your blood levels up of this. It's been shown to enhance performance. And, so there's a couple of ways to do this and so. You know when you begin to exercise. In young healthy people are well trained athletes. When you begin to exercise, that stimulates nitric oxide production. That's why exercises medicine. So? It's bidirectional. It's Bidirectional, but. There's a critical. Cross point here. That when you reach your threshold for the. Cells in the blood vessels to make nitric oxide. You need oxygen. So when you run out of oxygen when you're exercising, which is the ANAEROBIC threshold? Then nitric oxide production in the lining of the blood vessels shuts down. So then that's when you run out of fuel. Typically, he switched to the centre. Aerobic metabolism like acid builds up and that's the whole set of. Performance. But what we've recognized that if you can titrate your levels up prior that when that pathway of nitric oxide? Stops working then. This reservoir of nitrate nitrile can be reduced to nitrites. Under low oxygen. So you've got a buffer system, and that's the buffer system. That's really the difference between winning and losing especially in Olympic. Have you quantify this? As far as let's say, I've got A. You know a big workout tomorrow that I. WanNa, get ready for should I. You know how many milligrams I WANNA do. Like how many hours before and how many days before do I? WanNa be ramping it up. So if you're using so, we have A. Technology that actually generates nitric oxide guests and we published this. Peer Reviewed Journal did three minutes before time trial on a bicycle. That, if you take that twenty minutes before your exercise, you can increase your time by three percent. That's phenomenal. I mean it's truly the difference between first and last. But, if in, but again it depends on the type of activity you're going to do so. The metabolic requirements of a time-trial much difference than say resistance, training or high in high intensity interval training, so there's protocols being developed now and so if you want to utilize nitrate. As a substrate that takes ninety to one hundred twenty minutes. To go through this Terro Salary Circuit to be activated by the bacteria to swallow it generate nitric oxide and the Fluent of the stomach. So for that protocol has just nitrate. Then you have to take this about an hour and a half to two hours prior right, but if you're using mouth was using antibiotics, we can't make stomach acid. They're not going to get the performance enhancing benefits. But nitric oxide or nitrile per se. You can take the ten minutes before that provides that buffer reservoir that will allow you to extend that anaerobic threshold and perform better than your competitors. So do do you know our it? To the best of your knowledge, you know many sports, teams, or athletes that are that are supplementing with some sort of you know, beet, powder, beet, juices, and stuff like that. We have I developed a commercial be product in technology. We have close to two hundred sports teams that use it both professional NCWA from. NFL ALL NCW programs including University of Texas here MLB teams NBA. Teams hockey teams, while in fact, the entire US Olympic team in two thousand sixteen, using our technology. So the cat's out of the bag, get settled back. At first it was as any competitive people that were using. Our products didn't want their competitors to know right. But then it became aware because these sports. Dietitians speak. Go to these conferences, and then they let the cat out of the. We've got these other sports dietitians ago. Hey, we heard so and so was using this. We need this. And we hear that it's a game changer. How important do you think it is that people? Let's say Like again I'll refer to my father and his protocol where he likes his patients to do. Six servings of green leafy day. And he likes them to chew them to masticate them not to throw them in a blender and. Drink them is a smoothie. Do you think there's benefit to shooting? Down, so there's several benefits number one. You just increase the surface area of the food particles. You're digesting. See a better breakdown in the stomach and the guest Tesla when you're join when you're shoeing, so you break them down into smaller particles, but then number two is. You're increasing the resident time in the activation time for these bacteria to utilize the nitrate. In that particular protocol, you wouldn't necessarily have to wait ninety minutes until. Right and Tarot celebrates circuit. Put it back in your salary glands. There's enough resident time in the to and for sixty or ninety seconds. Those bacteria have that substrate available right then and there to start responding on him, said almost primes the pump if you will right right. Well So I think that I read that you are such a fan of of Ano-. Nitric oxide that in your. Estimation, it should be considered a vitamin right. Well I think. There's ways or put on par with with a vitamin right because if you have if people, aren't you if you're not getting enough, it causes the diseases, and it sounds like I mean if we look at if you look at the definition of a vitamin that was defined I think my customer funk back in many hundreds of years ago. That it's produced naturally in the body. Or found. Naturally in certain foods. And deficiencies caused specific disease, and if he repeated, the disease goes away. So the best examples vitamin C.. You don't get enough vitamin C.. You get scurvy. You can completely overcome scurvy giving it back. That's the best best definition of vitamin. We think there's evidence to support that if your body can't make nitric oxide so number one, it's naturally produced number two. You can get it from your diet, but if your body is deficient in nitric oxide. You're subject to a host of chronic disease, including heart, disease and stroke number one killer of men and women worldwide. And it's been shown that if he can replete. And recapitulate nitric oxide, they signalling. You don't get cardiovascular disease in many age. Related Diseases Go away, so it's not I. Mean want to trivialize scurvy Beri Barrier. Things like that, but deficiency of nitric oxide causes the burden of diseases that face Americans and people worldwide day, but I think it's not nitric oxide. The end goal is to get to nitric oxide, so vitamins are typically stable. Right so I. Think we've always looked at. Nitrate is kind of what we call a pre pro drug or pro vitamin. nitrile would be kind of the free vitamin, and then nitric oxide is the actually active agent. And so that's. There's evidence for that in physiology We need vitamin D Vitamin D is metabolized into by the bacteria in the gut to perform the active form or activated by ultraviolet light. same thing with thyroid hormone body produces t four or given t four allow the body to convert it but inactive hormone. So nitrate would be like T. four nitrile teeth, reactive hormone, nitric oxide bt, too, so there's. The body works and so. This isn't fallen physiology. But I think what we have to do is really understand. How can we repeat this activity through the Diet? Optimize our own systems to utilize that to generate nitric oxide. That includes eating a good diet, but eliminating the bad stuff that's in our body. That hitting this metabolism. Yeah, yeah, I want to show you this photo I. Don't know if you've seen this. This is from my father's severed. Okay, and he basically here. This is you know one of his his patients. You can see this as the left anterior descending artery. I'll put this in the show notes Yep on the podcast for for people that are listening, so you can see it, but you know this is two and a half years later, and this is before my father kind of knew about nitric oxide, because as you can see here. This is nineteen, ninety six to nineteen, ninety nine. and. My question to you is. Do you think that this reversal was able to happen? just because he was eliminating. You know kind of all the. The at the time the the foods that he believed were injuring the endothelial cells, and then just because this is such a heavy. Fruit and vegetable based Diet. And obviously green leafy he was able to. Basically you know, metabolize away the platform nations, and then you know restore the body's ability to produce nitric oxide I mean yeah, look, you can't argue with data. Obviously, there's data are open to different interpretations, but the date or the date, and the fact that you can reverse heart disease with this is very profound, so what I like to do is I'd like to start with things work. And then work backwards and figure out the mechanism. Tweak and make it actually better. I think that's why basic science today in today's culture and academia doesn't work because people try to find their favorite protein or favor, molecules favored enzyme and make it fit into biological physiological system. Yeah, and it's like putting a square peg in a round hole, but I think if you start with what works and work backwards. I think cancer your question. There are number of things that are happening there, too, but one when you eat a plant based Diet. Nitric oxides a very important component to that, but there's also other micronutrients that were probably missing in their previous diet that they're now getting. But to me goes back to the basis of everything that I consider. Your body heals when it's given. What's missing in you eliminate what's inhibiting the process? I think a plant based. Diet probably provides a lot of that. Benefit not only. Are you getting a lot of fiber other micronutrients in there. But provided your body. Has the systems intact? It's going to utilize the nitrate from that plant based diet to generate nitric oxide. We nitric oxide can reverse plaque deposition revert to. LEAD TO REVERSE LIPID TRANSPORT CLEANUP. Blood vessels make them pliable functional. Right in the. We would explain that data one hundred percent, yeah. Well, I mean I think that they should rename nitric oxide to Nirvana. Nirvana. It sounds like it's the I mean it is it is it is miraculous? And I think more people you know need need this information. Know what they can do to make sure they're not disrupting. The an pathways and doing everything they can to bump up their their production of it I. Just I think it's really phenomenal that you have devoted your life's work to to know I think what we WANNA. Do want to say yes to no end right now. Yes, to know. Yeah, you know I. Think all of us looked for a profession that we can change people's lives I mean I think a lot of people are motivated by that. I think very few people actually have the opportunity to do that in a real sense world you can. Can fake ourselves in the same at Suffield, very fortunate and blessed to. Be In this field for twenty years, and to contribute to the knowledge base of this, but. You Know I. Think this is certainly one of those scenarios where what you don't know can kill you. And it really doesn't have to be that way. This is very simple, common sense stuff, but I think it's education. Lack of education lack of awareness that everybody has a good intent for the most part in doing the things that they do, but we have to recognize the consequences, so I think again if we begin to understand and appreciate how the body makes nitric oxide. What are you doing your daily life? This disrupting this natural production of this molecule eliminate that. He's a good dog gets exercise and sweat. Yeah, it's pretty simple. We're now four months into this pandemic and I caught up for a few minutes with Dr Brian just last week over zoom about what he's doing as we speak using nitric oxide to treat symptoms of Covid nineteen especially. In our most vulnerable populations. No doubt you're going to be hearing more about this subject in the very near future Nathan. It's good to see you again. I think the last time that that I we spoke it was in person. In in Austin and it was pretty Kobe nineteen actually it was the very beginning of February before this was even was even really being being talked about A lot has happened since then. What's going on in your world? But through the even virtual, yeah, we're. We're living in the certainly different time than it was when we met face to face for the PODCAST. We know you know four months. This Kobe pandemic is that it is a serious virus that will recognizing. There's certain populations that were to infection that happens to be the African, American community. In. The data to me. You're really clear. 'cause there's been known health disparities. African American Hispanic population now for probably fifty sixty years in address in that out becoming very apparent with the Copenhagen because African Americans are more seemed to be more susceptible to infection. Rate of hospitalization is in a five to six times higher than any other, racial or ethnic group. The severity of disease seems to progress much much more rapidly, and then the risk of death is anywhere from you know some reports four to six times higher risk of death. Sometimes it's. Reporter showing ten times higher risk of death from African Americans. So here's what's relevant for what we talked about months ago. To now is that the health disparities of African Americans are due to lack of production of nitric oxide in were no, we know now know that people that have come abilities or really symptoms of insulation, nitric oxide production of the ones that suffered the worst severity of the disease, hospitalization and death. So now we have a clear mechanism. Of why African Americans are suffering from this? As well as Hispanics really focused on the African American population, and now we have ways, and we're actually investigating this. So, what will keep in touch in key to this? But to me? This is very important because no one's address to help disparities about African Americans despite the fact that we now know a mechanism of action, his loss of nitric oxide production, and now we have a chance to intervene in an address is very vulnerable population in a very important time in our lifetime. That's very exciting and very timely Do, you have! Do you have any thoughts on what it is? That makes the African American demographic so vulnerable. It's genetic an lifestyle so There's a known g-6 PD decision. See and African Americans tend to twelve percent penetration were another populations abuse less than five their salt, sensitive hypertension that seems to be more prevalent in the African American community. A lot of its lifestyle diet in so all of those both from genetic. response to these environmental and genetic factors really make some more susceptible to infection in the severity of disease. Progresses really really rapidly and most importantly gives us a chance to intervene in understanding this from a mechanistic standpoint and really help. People. Antastic, so how how have you been doing over the last three or four months with with Cova, one thousand, nine, hundred, you and your family doing? But we're doing great. Yeah, it's been kind of great reset button for me because artist parable about one hundred and forty hundred and fifty thousand miles. A year got every week traveling lecturing somewhere, so got a lot of work done around the ranch where West included. You. Come home, eight hundred acres up in the middle of. Nowhere in Texas and so we're secluded rice elated we've had. A lot of them and gives me time to spend. Chance to spend time with the wife and kids Nice Nice while I really appreciate the the quick update. We're going to obviously. Add this into the into the live episode that we have when we were together, but let me just sign out with a new sign off which is. Peace engine to nitric oxide. Thanks! I WANNA. Thank Dr Brian for his groundbreaking and dedicated research for the last twenty five years when cells can't get oxygen, organs and tissues fail, and that's the basis for most disease. But by following some of the advice in this episode, especially around Chewing Your Greens on a daily basis, you can reverse this trend and turn your body into a nitric oxide machine. And if you're one of the millions of Americans who rely on Antacids, antibiotics or floride on a daily basis, know that there's a better way there's no prescription or medication that can overcome physiology, and once you restore nitric oxide production.

#254: Mackay Rippey - Toxins and Nitric Oxxide's Role in Pain and Inflammation

"Only golden calling only juice. It's time for live aradio. Join US every Thursday. I tunes for the latest episode of Lime Ninja Radio. Hello I'm your show producer brains behind Lime Ninja Radio Aurora and this is episode number two hundred fifty four with your host and official nitric oxide expert an earn expert. If you get asked to talk about it right one would think so I think so too McKay rupee. And that's why you still the intro for is Sawai. I stole the intro. Don't be fooled. I am here live in the studio and today we're going to be learning three things. Yes what I'm going going to be. Presenting is a talk. I gave in Denver about nitric oxide and toxicity and how the toxicity oxidative damage our ability to produce nitric oxide which eventually leads to heart attacks and death now. We all know that lyme disease Aziz has a component where it can damage your heart lime card itis right and I believe this is the pathway through which it's doing that damage but the other thing that's happening and talk about in this talk is there's significant. DNA damage going on as well and nitric oxide can also damage Mitochondria Eddie congre it's at the centerpiece of the inflammation that happens with lime disease and particularly something called Nas uncoupling so Nassir simply employees. Nos Nitric Oxide synthase and their various synthase is located in different parts of the body when this enzyme becomes uncoupled doesn't do its job or maybe people would say it does it's secondary Ab- then it starts creating much much much much can say much much more time. It seemed more times I think inflammation mation just it goes off the rails and our sickest patients out there definitely have nas uncoupling going on now. There's genetic factors that can play into NAS uncoupling as well but we won't dive too deep into that so that's why I wanted to bring this to. It really is Geeky. It's really technical. It's really awesome. If you grasp even a little bit you'll begin to understand. Why one of the things you need to do? The heel is to get your nitric oxide synthesis back on track and there are a couple strategies are quite a few strategies do that. The talk was too long so I didn't go into into all the different supplements that have formulated for this. But if you have any questions send us an email or just google nitric oxide supplements out. There they're really some good ones Berkeley life in particular is an easy way to get started the human N.. And Neo forty is also a good one and then if you do have a genetic nutrition practitioner who worked with Bob Miller and his system. We have three specialty supplements designed just for that system all right. That was a long introduction. Wasn't isn't it. Yes for those listening. Still listening or having scared off Lauren. I want to give a big shoutout tell you longtime longtime lime Ninjas. You're the reason we have more than half a million downloads Aurora. I really appreciate you tuning in and we also like to welcome all the new listeners listeners. Out there welcome to lime into radio you are now officially a lime Ninja and as you know lime disease is an international problem. Each agree of listeners. sner join you from all over the world and this past week. We've had listeners tune in from Berlin Germany to Burwood Australia. That's so cool you'll have to and we're not GONNA do an intro about me. You kind of know who I am. I'm an acupuncturist. I work with Bob Miller on his research staff. Jeff become an expert in nitric oxide. You say a little bit more about yourself a little bit more. Oh good do I introduce myself to know more about me. Listen to the talk. It's in the first few minutes so you won't be scared off yet no really. It's good I go slowly I explain it all. There's also a youtube video video of this. That has the slides as well and we'll put that in the show notes. If you're listening in the car you want to say you know what I need to see again with. The slides will have that on lime Ninja radio DOT COM. And I think that's enough so let's get started without further ado and any other cliches cliches. Let's get started with my nitric oxide presentation. Hello this is a presentation I gave in Denver. Bob Miller's Tuck Society Conference in in September two thousand nineteen for those of you. Who Don't know me yet? My Name's McKay ripping. My training is as of five ELM acupunctures. I've been in practice for thirty years ears and live on a small farm in central New York. My journey down the nitric oxide rabbit hole began to an F. years ago when I had a reactivation of lyme disease and that left me unable to lift my right arm for three months it was a miserable experience however I am grateful that gave me a lot of time to really dig into the power purpose and pathology of nitric oxide but before we jump in I need you to do one thing for me okay. And that is. Don't drink the KOOL aid so I'm him by that. I want this presentation to be like a wine tasting except you're going to be sampling information instead of wine. I want. She does sniff what I'm teaching swirling around the glass. Hold it up to light. Take a SIP. You know do that. Funny thing. That wine tasters do with their cheeks and and then spit it out. If what I'm teaching is good and I believe this information is very very good. You'll want more. You will understand your most difficult go patients in a whole new way and you'll have new tools in your clinical toolbox to help them and that reminds me conflicts of interest or no joke. I make a small all bit of money on the supplements recommend. And that's that so. Are you ready to jump in awesome. Let's go oh toxins. Create all kinds of health problems but we're going to focus on cardiovascular disease. Why because it's a huge problem and you're seeing the facts of it in your office every day? According to the American Heart Association every forty seconds in American of heart attack as of two thousand in sixteen twenty eight point two million. US adults were diagnosed with heart. Disease the hard toxins is a really depressing. Six hundred sixty the eight page read. It thoroughly examines many sources of toxicity. And how those toxins affect the heart. This truly is the age of chemistry and this age has a dark side. We could spend the rest of this weekend going over the toxins in this book. But I've chosen to focus on one and that is bis- FINOL A. or B. P. A.. A two thousand three. CDC Studies showed that ninety three percent of people had BPA in their urine. And that makes me wonder about the other seven percent if they don't have some sort of detox vary in addition to its well known endocrine disrupting effects the CDC links BPA to all kinds of health issues and you can see that as found in lots of everyday items. It's no wonder we're all have. BPA In our systems. This two thousand fourteen study from the Journal of the Federation of American Societies for experimental biology. She showed that. BPA caused hypertension. Here are some of the highlights from the study. There's higher urinary. BPA concentrations are associated associated with arterial hypertension in humans. And they wanted to know why that happened so they designed to study they put. BPA In the drinking water of eight week old mice for thirty days. The mice developed a dosage dependent high blood pressure and that's a strong indication that there is a cause and effect relationship ship. The reason they develop hypertension and the mice is they had a one point seven. Fold increase in arterial. Ngo tencent to a two point five fold increase in calcium calmodulin dependent protein. Kinase two Alpha and eight point seven fold increase in endothelial nitric oxide synthase now that huge. BPA increases the expression of endothelial. Nitric Oxide synthase. Thanks are enormous. The reason why that's used is as up till recently emails was believed to be expressed at a fairly constant physiological level and didn't very very much we now know that just isn't true. They also found significant emails dependent superoxide and PEROXY nitrite accumulation. And so. That's how also huge and you might get tired me saying huge during this presentation but it's immensely important. What that showing is? Is that the nitric oxide. Three the in the endothelial nitric oxide is being over expressed first and that it is being uncoupled and instead of producing nitric oxide is producing the oxidant. superoxide peroxy nitrite so any light bulbs Czarnikow for you like. They did for me when I first read about this paper. Yes no it's okay. If the aren't we're going to unpack the the details of what is happening in the study. And you'll see later that not only does blood pressure rise because of a lack of nitric oxide but the stage is also set for significant can't inflammation and even tissue destruction by activation of the innate immune system so the study concludes our data suggests chests that BPA regulates blood pressure by inducing NGO tencent to and calmodulin kindness to Alpha uncoupling of endothelial. Nitric Oxide Ed clearly. EPA is a huge problem. But I don't WanNa get stuck on. BPA instead of focusing solely slowly on the toxin itself we're going to focus on something which I think is far more important and far more universal. We're going to focus on how nitric oxide and in its synthesis get disrupted and I believe nitric oxide is disrupted in many of your sickest patients there is no way to cover everything. Nitric Oxide dozen ninety minutes and do it any kind of justice so this during this presentation just going to be focusing on the downstream cardiovascular damage Mitch from nitric oxide this regulation but we could just easily talk about Alzheimer's or lime disease or autism autumn unity. LS So forth and so on insomnia depression. The list literally is endless. Nitric oxide is involved in a vast sporadically of physiological. Something symptoms so this is a two thousand seven seven study from physiological reviews. It's a fabulous paper nitric oxide. superbeets ain't proxy nitrate. It's open access. I highly recommend that a two track this one down so the name superoxide implies that superoxide should be a powerful oxidant superoxide however more generally behaves Habes as a mild reduction under physiological conditions rather than a super oxidizing agent. This is because superoxide exists naturally as a small Anti Ryan which is more likely to surrender its electron than to accept a second electron from another biological molecule. However superoxide is a strong oxidant? When it's made to a protein that way will directly oxidized positively charged chemical Mortiz such as iron sulfur centers enters and? I'M GONNA be dig into this more because I think this is super significant. I WanNa know exactly what. Proteins are getting charged up by superoxide and who they're chasing after. So the destruction of iron sulfur centers might occur. Andrea has been well described in superoxide dismutase knockout doc out mice so to review superoxide when it's paired with a protein has a particular appetite promote a cadre this is why superoxide dismutase and genetic variants in the production of that enzyme or such a big deal although nitric oxide is often described as a highly talk sick and reactive molecule it's not in fact inhaling low concentrations of gaseous nitric oxide is approved by the FDA for treatment of persistent instant pulmonary hypertension in newborns. In addition nitric oxide can be produced for eighty years by neurons in the human brain without overed toxicity. Paradoxically the production of the same. All you'll can become highly damaging to the same neurons within a few minutes during pathological challenges. such as stroke broke. And so how is this possible. The answer lies in our old friend. PEROXY nitrate the reaction of nitric oxide with superoxide to form the much more powerful oxidant. Peroxy nitrite is a key element in resolving the contrasting roles of nitric oxide in physiology. Oh Gee and pathology. A number of pathological conditions are associated with a simultaneous generation of nitric oxide and superoxide nitric nitric oxide sources are restricted to the activity of the various nitric oxide synthesis whereas superoxide arises from multiple sources including including electronic from the Mitochondria and ADP oxidise Xanthi knocks. Today's and the uncoupling of nitric oxide synthesis. By the way I think that part of the paper the review needs to be updated. I'd like to add that side. Chrome pugh four fifty can reduce nitrite to nitric oxide aside and so can other enzymes in the body under high pox or acidic environment so there are situations where nitric oxide can be formed outside of the nitric oxide synthesis. Think that's important to point out so products like Berkeley Life. Professional whether providing nitrate that eventually gets converted to nitrate Ken up your nitric oxide levels. Okay the next part of the paper is a bit long but it's really the heart of the presentation. Jn Yes I meant that Pun so sit up take a few deep breaths and get some oxygen into your brain. It's that important. In nineteen ninety. The first paper suggesting testing that peroxy nitrate could be a biological oxidant were published before then most scientists did not believe that the body could produce something as toxic as PEROXY Roxie nitrite in fact some of the original ideals of nitric oxide and proxy nitrite came from the research into air pollution at the time. Much of the literature suggested that nitric oxide was simply a scavenger of superoxide and thus acting as an antioxidant however however Josef Beckmann and his group at the University of Alabama Birmingham showed proxy nitrate exists in Vibo and produces far more hydroxyl so radicals than the widely accepted Fenton reaction in addition peroxy nitrate produces nitrogen dioxide which can lead to the novel oxidation products that were previously only suspected to occur after exposure to cigarette smoke or to air pollution. So essentially if your body's producing Roxy Ni- I trade. It's as bad as if you were smoking or out. And the smog of a big city. And that's crazy. It's just mind blows my mind. Minded proxy nitrate can generate the same toxins. That are in cigarette smoke. You know just let that sink. In for a moment separately neither superoxide nor nitric. Oxide is particularly toxic in Vivo. Because they're efficient means to minimize their accumulation superoxide is rapidly removed by high concentrations of scavenging enzymes called superoxide dismutase and their distinct ice. Oh enzymes located in the mighty cadre the site of Plaza Awesome an extra cellular compartments nitric. Oxide is rapidly removed by. It's free diffusion through tissues and into red blood cells where it is rapidly rapidly converted to nitrate by reaction with oxy hemoglobin. This limits the biological half of nitric oxide in Vivo to about a second where as concentrations of nitric oxide can preserve persist in vitro for an hour. So that's the paper saying in a nice scientific way All you in vitro studies that show nitric oxide existing for long periods of time urge or just plain wrong when both superoxide and nitric oxide are synthesized within a few cell diameters of each other. They will combine spontaneously heinous lead to form peroxy nitrite by diffusion limited reaction that means what that means chemicals every time nitric oxide and superoxide collide. They form peroxy nitrite. The incredible speed of proxy nitrate formation is an important part of its effect and no enzyme is required to format. That fact will be obvious to the biochemist listening to this. Because of the nature of diffused limited reaction actually the definition one of diffusion limited reactions and enzyme cannot possibly catalyze a reaction as fast as nitric oxide and superoxide reset react all by themselves in fact nitric. Oxide is the only known biological molecule that reacts faster with superoxide and has produced in high enough concentrations to out compete and dodging US levels of superoxide. dismutase so what that means under normal conditions if it's a choice between nitric oxide and forming with superoxide and making proxy nitrate or superoxide getting cleansed from the body by superoxide superoxide dismutase. The nitric oxide is going to win out every single time and make peroxy nitrite. That's huge so if you have lots nitric oxide being produced anywhere near the source of superoxide and sometimes that's happening in the same cell all the superoxide dismutase in the world's not how can stop the formation of Peroxy Nitrite consequently the kinetics and the thermodynamics of the reaction of superoxide with nitric talk side make the formation of proxy nitrate inevitable in Vivo. It's not a question of if you're making proxy nitrate but how much watch so. Let's look into that. This is what you would expect as the equation of nitric oxide plus superoxide to make proxy nitrite so as a example ten right hand. Gloves plus ten left-hand clubs equal ten pairs of gloves right. It should be that simple. However right we're dealing with biochemistry here? Nothing's ever simple however because all the biological reactions proxy night triggers downstream. Can you get this a tenfold increase in nitric oxide and superoxide gives a hundred fold and crease and peroxy nitrite. So when the immune system is activated nitric oxide and superoxide levels can increase by a thousand fold that gives rise to a million enfold increase in proxy nitrite. Not One hundred. Fold not a thousandfold not a hundred thousand fold a million fold increase and that's just bigger than us. It's a game changing biological shift. So is it any wonder why some of your patients are struggling. Cling is it any wonder they're inflamed. Is it any wonder they cannot handle anything anything that might cause even even the slightest bit of inflammation. I had a patient once who couldn't eat without having a massive inflammatory storm so now I understand what you're going through a whole lot more you know we've talked about and the'll nitric oxide but we really haven't gone over. What what the endothelium is and what it's doing so here is a diagram of a blood vessel in the middle those little peach peach colored things? Those are red blood cells. And then you'll see a layer the endothelium and then on either side either above or or below those bigger cells. Those are the smooth muscle cells. So the endothelium serves as a barrier and a sensing mechanism. And that's really enough enough to know for this This lecture this video that we're putting together. There's so much more that the feelings doing but that's its job it's to to create a barrier and to sense what's going on inside the blood vessel and to communicate that to the entire system we've talked about what nitric oxide is doing but what we really important to understand is how far are these. Chemicals can diffuse outside the source cell whether generated so what you see here is nitric. Oxide can diffuse. WHO's really freely throughout cells and it lets? It bounces something it's reacting with mostly a team so if it goes into the bloodstream. It's GonNa react react with the platelets there and react with whom hemoglobin and to form nitrate and that gives gives a half life of about one second so it can easily diffuse through several cell diameters no problem all right. Next let's look at superoxide and there you can see. superoxide doesn't travel so much and that's really due to the fact that there's so much superoxide dismutase around right there SURPRI dismutase inside the Mitochondria inside the cell and even outside in the extra cellular space. So there's lots of superoxide around to mop up super oxide however we just as we mentioned before if nitric oxide gets there before the superoxide there at the same time the superoxide will react with the nitric oxide to form proxy nitrite. And that's what we'll look at next peroxy nitrate. I try even though it gets form so incredibly quickly by the chemical reaction it can diffuse quite a bit. And that's because it react selectively. It isn't even though it's a radical and a strong oxidant. It doesn't just react with everything around it so it can bounce around from cell all to sell for a while before it finds a site that wants to react with and last. I think it's really important to have a look at the other other really well known radical the hydroxyl radical. And here. You can see how tiny its diffusion radiuses and that's simply because it is so so so very reactive that it doesn't travel anywhere. The ability of the hydroxyl radical travel is about the diameter of a small protein protein. And that's ten thousand times less than proximate travels so they're just radically different even though we call them free radicals and talk about oxidative the date of stress in this kind of general blanket terms. I think it's really really important to begin. Distinguishing the difference between these radicals and what they're doing. What their potential art they are? Not the same. You can't not treat them the same. They're radically different. Based on how quickly they're formed a and then how quickly quickly or how far they can diffuse be and then see what they're reacting with so hydroxyl radical just react with everything oxidises anything in its path. It's so reactive. They cannot travel at all. So the contrast between PEROXY nitrate and hydroxyl radical is dramatic the hydroxyl radical is formed by by a rather slow chemical process via the reaction of bears iron with hydrogen peroxide. But react so quickly with everything around it that it can only diffuse about the diameter of a small protein and contrast roxy nitrate is formed very very quickly each time superoxide and nitric oxide Clyde. However it reacts more slowly and more selectively throughout the cell that makes the biological and pathological implications of Brock's nitrate four far far more interesting because it can have a more subtle and more specific action in and around the cell so one of those is reactions have discovered recently and it was interesting to hear Dr Joseph McCulloch bring up the same fact here? We're kind of on the same page. As far as nitric oxide excite goes and that is when you combine peroxy nitrite and carbon dioxide and there's plenty carbon dioxide in the cells rate had just part of the oxidative process within the Mitochondria. You get a curious molecule called the carbonate radical and it's particularly particularly damaging to DNA so peroxy nitrite forms another radical. That goes out and KLOPPERS. DNA is isn't that interesting. This two thousand one study from the Journal of Biological Chemistry shows that the carbonate radical is particularly good at oxidizing acquainting proteins in DNA. Man peroxy nitrate is the give that keeps on giving just crazy isn't it and have you noticed something something here. All these radicals are so much different from each other and they behave in so much different ways we need to stop thinking of them simply as oxidants partisan partisan vague term like oxidative stress. They each have unique personalities a hydroxyl radical does not behave anything superoxide superoxide behave nothing like nitric oxide and nothing can keep superoxide and nitric oxide apart from each other and proxy nitrate has its own own Bikila like it's exponential multiplying effect and its ability to generate a whole host of other oxidants including our new friend the carbonate radical which has its own idiosyncratically of gobbling up wanting in DNA. So back to the two thousand seven paper from physiological article reviews they say once Affleck's of nitric oxide and superoxide is produced simultaneously in close proximity. The generation of proxy nitrate is considerably enhanced proxy nitrite dependent. cyto-toxicity is then mediated by myriad of effects including Lipid PROC sedation protein attrition and oxidation DNA oxidative damage and activation of Matrix. Mattel proteinase is is and the inactivation of various enzymes. Mida conrail enzymes are particularly vulnerable to attacks by Peroxy nitrite it and this leads to reduced. ATP Formation Might Andrea swelling and weakening of the outer mitochondrial membrane so so this allows for the flux of several pro APEP todic molecules including site chrome C and a pup. twos Shari a pop. toasties inducing factor actor in addition to its damaging effects on mighty Qendra peroxy nitrate can afflict mild to severe oxidative injury to DNA a resulting in DNA strand breakage. That's bad news this in turn activates. The nuclear repair enzyme. Par activate debated park consumes N. A. D. and you don't have time to go to any D. but it's all over the Internet and it's the kind of the the the supplement of choice these days NICOTINAMIDE riboside and so forth and so on but any deeds usually important so anyway back to to the paper. Mild damage of DNA activates the DNA repair machinery and normal cell functions. So there's only a little bit of proxy nitrate the body can handle it however once more proxy nitrate is produced and moderate oxidative in nitrous attentive. Say again oxidative and Nitro cives stress. It's induced DNA. Damage occur. The cell may be retired broken apart recycled by the pop toasties process and and if even more proxy nitrates produce and massive damage occurs the orderly process of a pop does fails to keep up. And you get necrosis instead instead of a pop toes. Is that bad news. This last scenario park over activated. That's DNA repair enzyme. So let's overactive. Aided massive amounts of any deer consumed and cellular ATP Production Collapses and is released into the extra cellular matrix tricks. So that's what that chart they're showing. It's the whole proxy Nitrite Dom damage to the mighty cadre. And what can occur with that so want Cell death by necrosis kicks in. It can be very difficult to stop. Septic shock is the classic example but I think many arsenic is patients are flirting on the edge of an a pop towse's slash necrosis crisis. So I'M GONNA go out on a limb here with this hypothesis of mind. I believe we have to go beyond the good and bad paradigm of the Reebok System. Simply antioxidants are good Free radicals or bad. Why does the body make proxy nitrate? It's a good question right. Is it a mistake. I don't thanks so so. Proxy Nitrate is by phasing physiological amounts. Mediate a tose a pop. towse's is an an immensely immensely important process. The orderly retirement of cells recycles proteins and Lipids and prevents runaway inflammation and on the other hand. Large amounts of peroxy nitrate is part of the innate immune system and mediate cell death by necrosis which targets both pathogens and host cells. So it can take four to seven days for the daft immune system to react to a novel pathogen. And if you didn't have a robust the native Younes response you would just die. So you proxy nitrate is an important molecule. The problem is proxy nitrate production action can spiral out of control mostly because of the exhaustion of anti oxidant enzymes but genetics can also play a huge role in that as well so so once that starts it can be super hard to stop then. Snack section is based on two papers two thousand nineteen article from nitric talk side and this two thousand thirteen article from the American Journal of Heart and circulatory physiology. So we're going to talk about the nitric oxide synthesis the enzymes and they all share these common traits. So this covers all three versions of the enzymes. We've all heard a ton about uncoupling. Uncoupling is a technical chemical. Turn all you need to know. Is that uncoupling beans. The enzyme is producing superoxide. Not Nitric Oxide. So the first way that this happens is l.. arginine is not available now. There's some among discussion about whether or not this can happen. And in fact I'm here to tell you it can so what happens is there can be plenty of Arjun in the blood supply so the tests come out normal there can even be enough arginine within the cell but it's being yeah sucked away. The gradient isn't close enough to the nitric oxide synthase and this team this red hime oxidized him. That does the work in the enzyme isn't stable enough and it falls apart so when the art gene isn't isn't available right there right on time what happens is the oxygen and the domain create a superoxide radical instead. Now what is going on there is in the literature. Refer to as the arginine paradox. However I just like to call it the Argentine in steel and the primary culp Brit in the Argentine? Steel is. RJ's now how Argentina's produced a lot when the immune system is tilted toward the teach to or macrophage to immune response so when the immune system gets pulled rise to that that's essentially the healing phase. That's a little oversimplified but basically the healing phase of the immune system on a larger level the liberal urea pathway can consume a ton of arginine. And this can affect the nitric metric oxide. synthase three the field NAS. It's not simply something. That's going on with the induced loss and the immune cells all right. So that's the first method of uncoupling top about now. There's a second uncoupling that happens and this involves B H Four. You're molecule and you'll see there to recycling circles Next to the beach four to the right of it and in between between there's excuse me the three and a score bait so as be h for donates an electron to this process it becomes a radical called three as long as it is reduced back to be h four. There's not a problem a score bait which is bioactive a form of vitamin C.. Enables this to happen now. This is the very very very important role a beach for nitric oxide production so as we talked about earlier up to the top left in the reductive domain the NASD PH donates electrons. Now this electron in terms terms of chemistry biochemistry moves down to the opposite side slowly. And if it doesn't happen fast enough the hime doesn't stay stable and spits out the superoxide so be h four. Is there to temporary. Lend temporarily lend an electron so as long as a beach. Four is there the hime is stable enough long enough to oxidise the arginine to citrulline. And then what happens if there if the beach. Four after donates electron isn't able to recycling. It's stuck it's B h three then. The arginine doesn't matter how much they're the Arginine can't get oxidized. It can't get transferred there to the site of the enzyme that makes us. This all happened fast enough because the hime is so unstable and it's para state in his oxidized state that it spits out a superoxide so so just like Jane this case though it the Argentinians right there but the Hemas so unstable it can't reach out and grab the Janie. That's what's the beach. Four NAS uncoupling so to recap. We've got the Argentine steel when there's no arginine available well then we have beach for deficiency. So sometimes there's just not enough beach for being made by the body was certain deficiencies or pathway deficiencies. There and this this case the nitric oxide synthase home audemer isn't going to be formed or stay. Formed long enough to make enough nitric oxide. So in these cases we can see very low level production of nitric oxide. The other thing that happens is there's a lack of reduction capacity inside ride the cell essentially the cell can't keep up with all the oxidative stress and the nitric oxide synthase starts to fall apart and produce superoxide instead right. So that's the uncoupling and we know now because of what we've been looking at the when you've got the superoxide being produced next next to nitric oxide magic one cycle the enzymes producing superoxide and they kind of recovers a bit and the producers nitric oxide. They're going to combine immediately right and form as a proxy nitrate. That's bad bad news. All right so we're entering the homestretch. You've done a great job CBS. So far hang in there. We're going to bring this all home. You know when I first Dr Bob Miller and invited me to present it as conference he said. Can you do this hour. Our said no problem then I started doing some more research. I called the Bagga said Bob. I think I need another half hour. Let us look at this mouse l.. Study it blew my mind. The two thousand nine Japanese study published in the circulation journal. And it's open access so take your time. This is well worth reading. This is where he got the concept of team nitric oxide. This study shows that nitric oxide citzen faces work in tandem and will compensate for each other. All right here is a graph showing basically how many of the mice died so the the red steps at the bottom is is the is the worst case and other cases are Not Quite as bad as you can see so what they did. was there trying to find a model a mouse model to mimic doc. Human heart disease particularly heart attacks so they started out by taking out the nitric. Oxide faces genetically knocking out and then they started with endothelium so they started knocking out one enzyme at a time thinking. Okay which one of these most important so they started with us and when they knocked that at one nitric oxide enzyme. They weren't getting the model they were looking for. So they started deleting two enzymes at a time when the various combinations nations and that was a little more what they were looking for but it wasn't until they took out all three nitric oxide enzymes that the mice started did having heart attacks in the same way that human beings do what they learn from. This is that the NAS enzymes work together as a team and compensate eight breach other so this is huge. You can't pigeonhole one NAS enzyme as only having one effect. Don't make that mistake somehow. There's crosstalk going on between the enzymes and they worked together to maintain nitric oxide levels. So if you have a patient with heart disease and you're looking at genetic snips you can't just assume because they don't have Inau snips right NAS three snips that they're okay. You also have to look at the other NAS enzymes times as well so what you see here is cross section of the mouse hearts on the left is the wild type. You can see how nice and clear it is. And there's the cross section of the coronary artery. It's beautifully open on the right hand side. What you see is a heart from a mouse that had all three nitric oxide? Synthase aces knocked out. That's the Tripoli knocked out NAS mouse and the blue and the top part in the heart that's all narcotic tissue from the heart attack and down below what you'll see. It's the same type of coronary artery. But you can see see the blues fibrosis of the body's trying to repair damage being done. And then you can see all the narrowing going there right. That artery is really blocked up and that's because of tissue growth after all the damage being done all right so let's this is. A graphical will abstract of what the study found so basically a defective nitric oxide. synthase system activates the Renan NGO tencent system him and if you remember back to the beginning we were talking about the EPA study BPA also activated the Renan Ngo tencent system so a lack of nitric oxide or a Tux. ity Has the same effect that to me is mind blowing so we know with this first bucks here the bachelor dysfunction that that's going to happen without up nitric oxide right. That's a given these other things. Though I've found were super fascinating donating and the next is when we don't have enough nitric oxide. There's not enough of hormone called ADIPONECTIN. ADIPONECTIN connecting is produced by our fat cells and there is a fat layer around the blood vessels probably as an energy source but it also oh produces nitric oxide. There is endothelial. Nitric oxide in these fat cells as well and obviously these fat cells are sending out hormones Food and talking to the rest of the system here. So when there's not enough Adiponectin we know this is greatly involved with Metabolic Syndrome so not only getting metabolic syndrome because the activation of the round Andrew tencent system but you have low adiponectin and that's contributing gene to it as well so it's no wonder that your patients are obese struggling with blood sugar struggling with hypertension all those metabolic syndrome Symptoms that we see day in and day out the next thing that they saw with the triple knockout mice is there's higher levels of LDL right. That's comes as no surprise. But also with this charge you get the idea that simply a strategy of luring. LDL is not a good idea. So if you're stuck still still stuck on the cholesterol paradigm heart disease. It's time to move away from that. And last this was super crazy fascinating without nitric oxide controlling and down regulating mass cells. The vessels began to invade the heart. And they lead to coronary spasms. And that was one of the triggers for the spontaneous myocardial infarction. So it's just crazy. How much patrick outside plays into all these systems right when you take away? Nitric oxide is like taking away gears on a mountain bike and eventually the body gets to a condition. Where just can't compensate all right? So let's go a little bit deeper into the pathways that get disarray with nitric oxide synthase dysfunction. So we're going to put this all together. Okay here we go so this time only going out a little bit on a limb all all. This information has come from the studies. We've looked at but I put it together in a slightly different way and included couple different things and I think it's going to really make this bring this all together for you and help you make sense of it. We're going to build a chart so first thing and this is Scott Zero what I want to say controversy to it at the bottom. We've got NAS three and Theo Nas makes nitric oxide right. No that's right. We don't have to argue about that. All and above it we know that nitric oxide down regulates mast cells and down regulates knocks one and knocks to if not the other Knox's as well in and the Knox enzyme is the NASD Ph oxidise and any oxidation. It's only job is to make superoxide and and is triggered as an immune response K.. So that's our starting foundation here. Now we learn from our first study that BPA INCREASES NGO tents attention to and not mentioned in that study but from other studies and your tencent to boost the knox enzyme so that creates more superoxide. So we've got a major source of superoxide here. We also know that nitric oxide is being made so when you put superoxide and nitric oxide together you get peroxy nitrite. The dreaded Ono chemical it's chemical Shorthand his own. Oh and that hat. PEROXY NITRITE CAUSES DOWN regulate speech for right. It causes problems with beach four. The forecast oxidized to be h two or three. Put them both in there because if the eight fours oxidise all the way down one more step after the BA three becomes beach too and has to go somewhere else to get a refurbished so to speak to be reduced back to be h four and this all leads to the NAS uncoupling remembered that. Study those charge that I showed you about Nas uncoupling so onc- uncoupling is happening. That leads to more superoxide and a reduction in nitric oxide so once the nitric oxide synthesis are uncoupled. What you're going to see is more superoxide and less nitric oxide bad news for your coronary system? Now if there's not enough nitric oxide what happens eventually. Is that the mast ask cells and the Knox enzymes are no longer regulated particularly when the Knox enzymes get going like crazy. They start start. Something called the NAACP. This is Bob Miller's term and we need an ADP for all kinds of reactions in the body and a DP h donates electron in so many different pathways. It's critically important. So it's getting burned up by the NASD PH oxidise the Knox enzymes. Then you don't have enough and ADP H to go around. In fact what Bob Miller talks about is is that an ADP H.. One of the emergency pathways. For making any DP. H is the body will take trip the fan to create an ADP H.. And when that happens then you start getting wired and tired right okay. And when mass cells aren't regulated recuperated you get excess histamine dump you get Maso activation and interestingly enough histamine up regulates NAS three so here you have uncoupling happening of the KNAUSS. You have an increase in the NAS right and we showed here that the BPA increases NAS is eight point seven percent. Now you've got. I'm sorry not eight point seven percent. Eight point seven fold. You've got histamine increasing us so some of that is producing some nitric oxide. But but it's income uncoupled as well right so it's also producing lots of superoxide so this is just a peroxy nitrate machine going on there and we know that the proxy nitrate also when it meets up with the carbon dioxide makes a car boxer radical that leads to DNA damage and and wants the DNA damage happens we get the park activation more. Na De Depletion so we got the NASD still going on any deed depletion which is is also a form of the NFC steal this leads to necrosis and necrosis. Those of you who know is a massive massive inflammatory flammable Mary trigger so when the body senses proteins. That shouldn't be in the extra cellular space. It gets very excited and pays attention. And sends ends the Innate Immune System to go take care of business and that causes a massive inflammatory cascade and against septic shock is the classic example Sampler that where it spins out of control. But in this case what we're talking about is damage done to the heart disease. You can see here that between the Histamine and the inflammation nations damage done that there. Are you GE- Problems. So my bet is that you have many patients coming into your office. Where their heart's coronary? Mary arteries look something like our poor mice. Here let's review this toxicity. Nas coupling proxy nitrate DNA damage mastel dysfunction the steel and cardiovascular disease. That's essentially what I've shown you right. That's if we could sum up this video in one slide. That would be it but it was important to take you on a journey to get here. They're all related. Can you see that now. The toxicity causes Nelson coupling nothing. Coupling Calls Proxy Fight Trade that causes DNA damage. The proxy nitrate also lends lends itself to mast cell dysfunction of the lack of nitric oxide included in that It also leads the NAACP because the Knox enzymes going nuts and that's going to reduce the efficiency of the nitric oxide synthase as well. 'cause there's not an donate the electron and all this bundled up is creating cardiovascular disease in your patients now the other thing is I'd like liked to say that NAS uncoupling is such a misunderstood term and it doesn't really have the emotional impact so I would like to call this whole all thing. The nitric oxide steel so not only is proxy nitrite being formed but it stealing nitric oxide. So you've got at this explosion of inflammatory process. You don't have enough nitric oxide. Everything just goes haywire This was really cool. Why thank you here? I have a fan club in the family. You're very welcome. Father Club indeed What really blew my mind? was that whole nitric oxide in Peroxy acce- nitrate coupling uncoupling uncoupling. And how much the inflammation increase like. You're saying it was like a million fold old increases like well. Let's back up there. What's important knows once peroxy nitrite starts getting formed and the body and basically anytime you're immune system kicks in? That's going to start or when the cells are under oxidative stress then or nitrous eight of stress. It's any and let's say any type of stress when the seals are under stress PEROXY nitrates starting at formed and because the way peroxy nitrite interacts with other compounds in the cell in and around the cell. What happens is instead of just increasing what you would think like on a Linear it it gets Algorithm Iq the inflammation just really gets ramped up at the body does not have the resources to combat back down again. That's when you you're stuck in bed and every joint hurts and just won't stop. He can't get it to stop right and that's why that's why they do you prescribe hormones. Steroids right thank you prednisone. And things like that prednisone shuts all those pathways off as the problem is if you've got a chronic infection or any type of infection also shuts down your immune system caused this is a function of your immune system that said if things are really stuck assure those apprentice oh might be advantageous. I'm not you know they're also urban waste. Do I start with urban pathways personnel. The natural stuffer but sometimes things are so bad. Then you just need to back it up with some sort of antibiotic or Erbil antibiotic the Prentice Omer talking about. But that. That's the important part to nose wants. This inflammatory cascade gets cranked up before your body's ability to cool it off on this Chinese there's too much heat it just goes off the rails and it's really really really difficult to shut down as I say really enough really difficult to shut down so that's the answer to question. It is the answer to my and I think it's so much suffering that's going on it's like the damage is done so you can. You can have the same symptoms that you had because of this inflammation when you were infected. Even after the infection's gone because because inflammatory cascade has not been shut down yet and damage right so so a dying cell. That's not retired properly. That goes into nick grosses instead of a pop doses is going to start off as much inflammatory signaling as an infection will bill so you can you can get this cycle of damage and inflammation ages. Won't let up whether or not the bugs still present whether it's hiding behind a biofilm film gone inactive and that's why there's so much suffering out there right so you can keep throwing antibiotics at it. And that's not gonNA help you need to cool these systems down you need. Could you nitric oxide back online and back on track K.. GonNa give a kindergartner summary of that okay. Okay if if you don't get your inflammation in your body under control you're gonNA keep suffering. I think that's a good way to some yes. I think that's a little more well said and actually really it's much more difficult to synthesize that down to one sentence so I'm going to say that's not kindergarten that's like PhD level simple.

#158: This Miracle Molecule will Supercharge Your Health with Nobel Prize Winner Dr. Louis Ignarro

"And what nitric oxide does is phenomenal. It's Vasil dilated her which means it widens the arteries and when it does that it lowers the blood pressure, it improves blood flow to different Oregon's because you're dilating the arteries and. In addition, this nitric oxide can keep the inner lining of the arteries. Healthy. Hi, everyone drove here host of the broken bring podcast. Today we are talking with Nobel Prize. Winner Nobel Prize. Winner twenty two years ago in October. He won his Nobel Prize for his discoveries centering around nitric oxide. That's what today's podcast is all about. Now here's how powerful nitric oxide is. If you've never heard about it, you definitely want to pay attention this in nineteen, ninety, two the. Journal science declared that nitric oxide was the molecule of the year because it's such an important signaling molecule comes to our cardiovascular health the health of our heart we WANNA keep our heart healthy our brain health nitric oxide is so important when it comes to our brain health for our immune system for our nervous system. Nitric oxide is the Miracle Molecule, and if you've never heard about it before, you want to listen to this podcast because we're gonNA share doctored Naro. He's going to share what things are hurting your nitric oxide production. It's produced naturally inside of your body and he's GonNa talk about what things can actually help you what foods, what habits, what lifestyle components you can bring into your life today to increase your natural nitric oxide production, and we're only beginning to understand the true impact of nitric oxide. In fact, right now and Dr Narrow talks about. It on the podcast nitric oxide is being used as an intervention. It's in a few clinical trials right now that we're waiting for the results on to treat cove in nineteen and it could be a game changer. So without further do a quick word from our sponsor thrive market who I love, and then jump into today's episode Dr Liu Ignarro Nobel Prize Winner Hey, everyone is true I wanna. Take a minute to talk about my personal diet and why I trust and use thrive market. So over the years of tried a lot of different diets and my journey of exploration, I've been a raw food est I was a Vegan for a few years and tried variations of a high fat diet and I've realized the key and we talk about this on the podcast is personalization what works For one person doesn't work for the next. So for example, after years of trying a high fat diet and I still do a variation of this. But I discovered that I don't have the genes that allow someone to digest high amounts of saturated fat. I don't digest saturated fat as well as maybe the next person. So all the coconut oil that I was having just wasn't working for me. This is back to the central message precision and personalization are essential to creating optimal health. So I started to look for an oil that could actually work for my uses everyday for medium to high temperature cooking and I made the switch from coconut oil to. Oil, which is mostly mono unsaturated fat and I feel better. Now I'm not saying coconut oil is bad for everyone it works for plenty of people. But in my case, it wasn't the best option.

This week's guest is Dr Liu Ignarro. Dr Narrow is a medical research scientist who was awarded the Nobel Prize in medicine for. His breakthrough discovery of Nitric Oxide, N., O. N., how it positively impacts health and longevity especially hard health his groundbreaking research on nitric oxide pave the way for among many other innovations Viagra. A Very well-known medication to a lot of individuals were recently by the way nitric oxide is currently being investigated over the world in hospitals and universities as a possible treatment and intervention for. COVID, nineteen Dr Narrow is a distinguished professor emeritus of molecular and medical pharmacology at the University of California Los. Angeles and he has his PhD in Pharmacology with over thirty years of experience in teaching doctor Dr Welcome to the brokering podcast. It's an honor to have you here with the honor is all mine drew. It's great to be here and I really look forward to. Talking about good health effects. Absolutely, in preparation for the interview, I was listening to pretty much all your content that I could get my hands on online and I've seen you mentioned in numerous. Speeches and talks about. Teaching is so central to who you are nothing fires you up more than explaining concept and then seeing a student that light bulb moment where they get it and I just want to say where did that come from before we jump into everything we're doing a passion for teaching come from while I can tell you clearly my passion for teaching, which is every bit as as large as my passion for a discovery or original research. My my passion for teaching came early when I was in elementary school and high school and you know why? Because I had lousy teachers and I would always sit there and wonder why can't these people explain something better than what I could. Read in the Damn Book. You know they're there to teach your up in front of the room teach and impart your information to this edens so that we can understand it and I swore that if ever the day came when I would be a university professor, I would not do it their way. I would do it my way and try to become the best teacher I could, and I've always had this passion for communicating with students I love that that's incredible and we'll come back to that. In your origin story. I want to take a moment to congratulate you because we're coming up on the twenty second anniversary of your Nobel Prize I believe you got the prize. In October. Twenty two years ago. Does that sound right? You very good at this very, very good. Yes. I the announcement of my Nobel Prize was an October twelve. Of One, thousand nine, hundred, Ninety, eight, and you know this coming Monday October fifth the Twenty Twenty Nobel Prizes will be announced. So get ready. You one thing I don't know who's going to get it. But I'M NOT GONNA get it a second time. That one is enough. One is fantastic. Especially one as powerful as the one that you've gotten, we should awe only hope and dream that we can have direction i WanNa talk about your basis of the work for receiving the Nobel Prize for discoveries concerning nitric oxide as a signaling molecule in the cardiovascular system. Let's start off with the basics what is nitric oxide and how's it so fundamentally related to our health and function. That's a great question would require a about a week to answer but I will try to do it in a couple of minutes. Nitric oxide firstly, I want to remind everyone is not a gas I I mean is not a liquid or solid, but rather it's a gas. It's a gaseous substance that only lasts for a few seconds. It's very unstable. This is what made it so difficult to find in the in the human body, and that's why the discovery came. So late in the nineteen eighties and so essentially. What I discovered was that our bodies produce this molecule of nitric oxide which should not be confused with nitrous oxide. That's laughing gas, and that's what's used in a dentist office, for example, to relieve pain. Nitric oxide although it sounds the same is a totally different molecule and. What we discovered was that our arteries, our endothelial cells that line the arteries actually make this nitric oxide and what nitric oxide does is phenomenal. It's Vasil later. It widens the arteries and when it does that it lowers the blood pressure, it improves blood flow to different Oregon's was your dilating the arteries and. In addition, this nitric oxide can keep the inner lining of the arteries healthy so that blood does not clot a when it's not supposed to in the arteries also prevents cholesterol plaques from depositing in the arteries. So as long as you keep making nitric oxide in those endothelial cells, it will keep your vascular system very healthy. So one of the reasons we make nitric oxide is to protect our cardiovascular systems against high blood pressure. Stroke and heart attack. Assembly that's fantastic. I'd love to build on that a little bit and dig in and you know the history of nitric oxide is very interesting. We often thought it really had no value inside the body because it was associated as being a pollutant or something very hazardous to. Human beings we didn't essay. Think it was something that was going to be helpful towards absolutely because nitric oxide is a pollutant in the earth's atmosphere the way it forms that one a bolt of lightning zaps through the air. It causes a chemical reaction between nitrogen and oxygen. It's n and Oh to form. No, that's nitric oxide and it remains a gas in the atmosphere. Now, nitric oxide itself we've learned is not the dangerous. Aspect is not the dangerous gas in the atmosphere. What is dangerous? Is that nitric oxide being very unstable? With. In the air to form nitrogen dioxide or in to another name for that is acid rain. That's. What's toxic of course will kill you and if you fly on a plane and you go over any Industrial City like Los Angeles New York or specially Beijing and China. You see a brown gas hove ring over the city that's all N. O. Two but guess what it came from an O. N. O. is the starting material and the environment is loaded with Eno. And because of that reaction nobody in his right mind was thinking that our bodies could make nitric oxide for any useful reason It's only because I stepped outside the box and reason that we perhaps we do make it I looked for it. I was lucky we founded and the rest is history. The rest is history and one of the important questions that you're asking yourself. Early on that you say is you're asking and hypothesizing is the power of good questions they lied to. You know it's more important to sometimes you say, you have the have better questions than necessarily having the answer because the questions take you on the right direction. And one of the questions you were asking early on was, why is it that some people have improved cardiovascular health and some people don't I heard you share that in past interviews and that was. The reason of investigating down this pathway of an. That's correct. I was wondering actually back in high school. I would always, I would see that. So many of my friends and neighbors would have cardiovascular disease and not live very long whereas an equal number would be perfectly healthy and live normal Loma lives. So the obvious question to me on as a kid, I ask lots of questions. I, drove my friends crazy I drove my parents crazy everybody crazy and especially. The teachers, you know these they asked me to sit down and just come after class to ask them questions. But you know why did some people yet these diseases and some not. So after taking a lot of courses in getting into college, I came up with my own idea which was not based on any scientific evidence whatsoever. I just thought maybe just maybe. Our bodies produce a molecule that protects us against cardiovascular disease. Some of US make a lot of this molecule some of us don't and those who do not make sufficient quantities of this molecule might develop cardiovascular disease I. kept this in my mind drew threw out my college medical and graduate education until I was working as a professor and eventually I found that molecule which is nitric oxide. So the moral of that story is never never give up. Let's pay off your statement there, and we talk about some people making more levels of nitric oxide and some people not how does the body create Ano-? How was it created and how does how we breathe relate to that? Very, very important questions when we discovered that the body produces nitric oxide, we did not understand the mechanism we knew the body produced it, but we didn't know how and then we but mainly other investigators found that nitric oxide is made by an enzymatic reaction in the body very simple. You know we eat protein proteins are digested two amino acids. And each of the twenty amino acids has a different function in the body but we make one we we have one amino acid called Arginine, which is extremely important because arginine is what this enzyme uses to make nitric oxide. The enzyme is very appropriately called no cintas. Okay. So so the no synthetics binds Arjun name. which has a lot of nitrogen on it and it takes one of them off and it makes it into nitric oxide. So so our body uses enzymes one enzyme to make nitric oxide, and once that was discovered then then it was. Really, easy to ski down the slopes to figure out how we could make more nitric oxide to keep us healthy. What are the problems associated with inadequate nitric oxide? How can we make more nitric oxide? What does a healthy diet have to do with nitric oxide and so on. So you know how sciences one discovery leads to another to another. Until finally, you can figure out the entire puzzle. That's fascinating. You mentioned something right there which is what is the problem with not having adequate levels of nitric oxide being produced in the body? What are some of the ramifications that can happen? Okay. There's a whole bunch of them when we initially made the discovery that our bodies produce. No. We didn't know what the ramifications were and then shortly thereafter we showed that if you don't have enough ano-. You'll get hypertension, they'll get high blood pressure because the arteries make nitric oxide to keep the blood pressure down in the normal range as soon as you start blocking production of Ano-. Hypertension. Same thing if you block the production of nitric oxide, you can get a stroke because you get blood clotting of. unnaturally in the brain. If the blood clots unnaturally in the coronary arteries of the heart. You. Get a heart attack so so no. It is required to maintain those functions also if you have inadequate no. We know now based on another discovery we made in the early nineties that males will develop a impotence or erectile dysfunction but let's not leave the ladies out ladies who make inadequate amount of no will also suffer from erectile dysfunction in the form of. they lose their their sensual or sexual arousal they lose sexual arousal the Libyan, the nitric oxide levels come down. And any other other aspect of course, something that you're an expert in it's called the brain. The brain depends. So heavily on nitric oxide for numerous functions, the most important functions we know about Eno and the brain is that the nitric oxide promotes learning. Memory recall recalling information in the memory and also just you remembering fax and so on. The other point that I always make to graduate students and young investigators that the brain has more nitric oxide in it then does the rest of the body. And we don't really know why all we know is that Eno in the brain promotes. Memory Recall. Learning and so on. But there's gotta be more functions. You know I think Enos important in the brain to to dilate all the blood vessels to keep the blood circulating in the brain to keep the delivery of oxygen and nutrients going to the brain, and when you dilate arteries also promote the removal or a washout of metabolites that can injure the brain just like they would in your muscles when you're working and so I personally believe that that the nitric oxide is one of the most important signaling molecules. In the brain you know and you know what I can tell you drew as as a Nobel laureate I can get by saying anything I want so. Well, it's not too much before your actual Nobel prize that that nitric oxide was named the molecule of the year. Top Science magazine so I don't think that. Your statement is off by any means at all. I WANNA return back to breathing because even start with the basics you know most of us were never really taught how to breathe and we come to take it for granted. We just go about her day we're breathing we don't really check in on it every. So often maybe we might notice that we're holding our breath or we think. About it in terms of athletic performance but take us from the point of US actually intaking oxygen and how that is connected to the process of breathing and ultimately creating the majority. Nitric oxide is kind of created a few different places, but it seems to be from all the discoveries that you've been part of and other individuals that there's something special about breathing through the nose. So correct. Sure of course that discovery was made. Oh, about fifteen years ago from. A couple of great friends of Mine Party Friends of mine, a in Stockholm Sweden at the Caroline's hospital what they discovered, they were looking at asthmatics and they were trying to measure. How much nitric oxide. is in the exhaled breath of as Matic's and those studies. While they worked out. Okay. But what they discovered, what I'm trying to say is what they discovered in those studies doing various manipulations that when. One breeze through the nose into the lungs. That air has a very high concentration of no gas. When you breathe in through the mouth, there's no ano- gas, and so the idea was the question came up. Of course, logically, why you know why is that air that comes through the nose full of nitric oxide and they found that the nasal mucosal cells in the nose, the noses complicated inside and those nasal cells make lots of nitric oxide gas. Okay and when you breathe in three or knows. That nitric oxide gas goes into the lungs. And they figured out. Three things. One that when you breathe in Ano- The nitrogen oxide is what we call a smooth muscle relaxing agent in other words when the nitric oxide hits the a tracheal smooth muscle and the broncos smooth myself. It relaxes it. So the Trachea and the broncos widen so that more air can get in the lungs. The other thing Oh does when you breathe into the nose is it reaches the pulmonary circulation. So all small pulmonary arteries, capillaries and so on. They all dilate in order to increase blood flow to the lungs and you know I mean, Mother Nature is very smart. Of course, you want to do that. You want to get more blood in the lungs so. That there's more blood to pick up oxygen you. WanNa dilate the the the broncos to get more air and therefore more oxygen in the lungs, and you can get a much better oxygen extraction from the lungs into the blood by breathing in through your nose, and then of course, the blood will carry the the I mean the circulation carries the oxygenated blood through the rest of the body but the third thing that was found actually a few years later. was at nitric oxide is anti microbial as well. Nitric oxide is a reactive free radical, so it can kill certain. microbes it can react covertly with certain components of bacteria. Parasites and yes viruses and yes. Corona virus and when nitric oxide does that kills those poor those microbes let me call the microbes and prevents them from multiplying. Okay and that's how breathing in through your nose you know protects us against every day you know influenzas and all kinds of infections that can occur because there's so much garbage in the air, and so I believe as you do I think it's essential when you're inhaling to inhale through the nose, there are many other reasons to to inhale through the nose inhaling through the mouth. You. Don't bring in nitric oxide all these all these deleterious substances present in the air go directly into your throat go into your teeth into your buckle cavity oral cavalry can promote. Gum Disease can promote cavities and on and on so. One can write a whole book and I think a book has been written. Why should in hailed through your nose and not your mouth? Yeah. There's a New York Times Bestseller Al I. Don't know if that's the one you're talking about, but it's called breath. That's right. Breath I've read that book I haven't read it but a lot of people are talking about it and fundamentally it continues on this argument talks about this and I think your work is also probably mentioned inside of their to. A little bit is is really why fundamentally breathing through your nose is so important and listening to this podcast. No, we've had guests in the past come on from dentist. We've had dentist talked about that. If you breathe through your mouth, all the cascading effects that ended up happening especially at night where you don't end up getting the deep level of oxygen saturation, which can keep your body. In a more high anxiety, almost sleep apnea state. Even if you're not an individual WHO's overweight, we've also had and this goes right back into your work. We've had a doctor's come on the podcast who specialize in individuals who want improve sexual performance from the inside out. Right and they're educating people which goes right back into your work that actually erectile dysfunction. If you have it as a male, it's one of the first indicators that you may be suffering when it comes to your cardiovascular system in your heart health correct. That's absolutely right because one of the the one of the first signs of making inadequate amounts of nitric oxide would be. Erectile dysfunction that would come first well before you would see a more dangerous. Consequences such as a stroke or heart attack another another Another thing one would see as the nitric oxide decreases as you get older is the development of type two diabetes that can be diagnosed fairly early on before you get serious cardiovascular disease, and of course, let's keep in mind that. Men with type two diabetes almost ninety, five percent of them get erectile dysfunction, and that's because of the decrease and the inadequate amounts of nitric oxide. Fascinating. Talk a little bit about you know a little a little bit more. Your work has directly influenced. The creation of Viagra everybody knows the little blue pill that's out there and Viagra actually. You know coming from the world of you know I'm not a physician I'm not. I'm just somebody who deeply curious. So I'm not a physician not working directly with patients. I'm not a researcher I just like to translate the knowledge towards people. So let's say early in my career I didn't have erectile dysfunction, but I would often have a negative viewpoint of medication in terms of. Okay, let's minimize the use of it. Let's start natural interventions I because they tend to be de prioritize but later on in my research but but in addition to that, later on my research I came to find that fi grows pretty like symptom free. Drug, that's out because of the pathways and the way that it works. Exactly. Yeah. Viagra, the generic name for that. SILDENAFIL and then the Pfizer pharmaceutical company named. Viagra. which was a neat name but yes, you know before. The Way Viagra came about is in my laboratory in the early nineties we were I was told by a urologist at UCLA. That in neuro transmitter, every nerve releases and neurotransmitter that produces an effect on the end Oregon and so the neurotransmitter that caused penile erection was not known not known, and if that's not known, you cannot you. You can't know what causes erectile dysfunction. There's nothing to study, and therefore they were no no drugs available that you could take orally to. Treat erectile dysfunction there were surgical techniques where rigid prostheses. Inserted into the penis. To keep in rigid and I'm not GonNa talk about that anymore. Painful and. So everyone was looking for a drug and none of the herbs and other things that came out really worked I mean it just didn't work so. Once we discovered the neurotransmitter was nitric oxide. Then we did a little bit more work as did urologists and they found that men with erectile dysfunction were making very small amounts of nitric oxide. So Pfizer pharmaceuticals picked up on this there are brilliant. And within six years, they developed Biogra- and guess how biogra- works by Agra works by boosting the production of nitric oxide in the Corpus Kevin Awesome in the erectile tissue of the penis. So if you don't have nitric oxide, Viagra cannot work if you have a small amount of nitric oxide, biogra- can boost the action of the nitric oxide and how make this very short to the point if you have a normal amount of nitric oxide and you take Viagra good luck. And it brings up the larger point, which is you know. Obviously knock on wood everything. Thank you for all the medication that's available out there and along with it going back to our first point, which is if you do have erectile dysfunction, that's a wakeup sign, which is, let's look at your lifestyle. Let's look at your movement. Let's look at your diet because you know we're not designed to have that especially at an early age great for medication but it's a warning sign. It's the canary in the coal mine to say pay attention. I'm so glad you said that I have been talking blue in the face at scientific meetings at medical meetings at urology meetings when a mass speak although I'm not a urologist and that's the point I make you wouldn't you and your said it. So so beautifully, you should write a book on that really that you've expressed yourself very clearly erectile dysfunction is the first sign of a nitric oxide problem, and therefore that nitric oxide problem is going to develop an places and usually as I said before. Almost everyone was type two diabetes. which comes from bad diet sedentary lifestyle on and on. That is due to a lack of nitric oxide. That's why the two go together. Now, what comes first erectile dysfunction or type two diabetes? We're still trying to answer that question but I'll bet my Nobel medallion that the answers that type two diabetes is GonNa come first and then erectile dysfunction is GonNa come next and so the bottom line which maybe we'll get into is that Eating a healthy balanced diet engaging in physical activity and stop leading sedentary lifestyle you probably because of that will not. Develop either type two diabetes or erectile dysfunction yeah. The movement pieces. So key this these. DOTS that you're connecting here in your last statement, they piggyback off of we had one of the world's top experts in insulin resistance on the podcast last week Dr Ben Dickman, who's done some really great work on this topic and wrote a book called why we get sick and you know he's talking about basically when we continually Spike are glucose and then ultimately end up raising our insulin long-term and we have these lifestyle like high super high sugary diets. Right I know you're all about balanced diet, but we want to get the sugar out of our diets that are there especially from process colas and other things like that which make up the vast majority of calories we end up in a place where we pre-diabetic maybe then on our pathway to end up type two diabetes and those cascade of effects and up having a whole host of issues on the body including lowering nitric oxide production. That's correct. That's correct. High sugar well, absolutely destroy produces oxidizing effects which destroy. Much of the vascular endothelial cells and those are the most important sells for making nitric oxide high sugars will do that. Also, high-salt excess salt not a little bit of salt but excess salt you know how people just had salt everything they eat without even tasting it that excess salt and the excess sugar that you get from foods, processed foods, and of course, sugary drinks all that leads to a decrease in nitric oxide production by the blood vessels. That's that's absolutely correct such an important point in. For you know, let's just on this podcast they know that we've talked about sort of ultra process through diet, which is responsible for more chronic illness than anything else that's out there. You know there was a study that came out last year eleven, million deaths a year that's linked to ultra process diets the vast majority of salt that especially people eating the western Diet here in. And a lot of other parts of the world since we've exported this western diet, the vast majority of salt that they're consuming comes in the form of breads and rolls and highly processed foods not necessarily always the salt that they're adding little bit see-sawed on their plate it's coming from this ultra process diets. Yes. If interesting, my wife started to learn how to make bread. Few months. Ago, we've started to learn to do a lot of things the pandemic started in. March and she she's a physician anesthesiologist and we get along because she has a passion and motivation for anything and everything. So she decided she was GONNA learn to make bread without a bread machine and let me tell you she makes the breast bread in the world. But the point is that she noticed all her reading all heard the reading the packages reading this and that. The quantity of salt that many of the bread makers put in the bread is phenomenal I. Mean it's it's it's dangerous dangerous amounts of salt in simple things like breads and you don't have to. You don't have to add all that salt. You have to make the bread a different way you know so that you don't need all that salt but you know I'm saying I'm emphasizing your point that where we don't expect it. We see so much salt in. So people if they if they don't solve, their foods are getting the salt in other foods at fairly dangerous level. So we have to be cautious about that. It's so true. I want to connect one more dot that you talked about, which is you're talking about type two diabetes. We know that diabetes and other Co Morbidity is like obesity art things that are associated with a higher likelihood of death from covid nineteen, right. So let's come back to the point we made in the introduction when I was bringing you on the podcast, why is it that nitric oxide is being investigated as intervention or important part of treating or avoiding corona virus? Yes. Well, let me explain. It was really the very logical thing to do according to One of my colleagues I've known for thirty. Years Dr Warns April at the Massachusetts General Hospital. for twenty years, he's used inhaled nitric oxide. To administer to newborns, many thousands, ear many newborns are born with. A problem in the lungs that is that when they are born. The, circulating blood the blood is not diverted to the lungs to pick up oxygen. The blood still is trying to get oxygen from the mother from the Placenta but of course, the Placenta is cut right is is removed when the baby is born. So those babies turn blue because they get oxygen and many of them. Most of them died I mean it was just a terrible terrible thing. But what my friend discovered is that if he gave small amounts of nitric oxide by inhalation into the lungs right before your eyes and I've seen it and it brought tears to my eyes, these blue babies turn pink. And they are cured from this terrible. Pulmonary hypertension. The cured and in a couple of Days Z. O. Mom and dad could could take the babies helmet condition is scared it just. It's one of the reasons why I call nitric oxide, the miracle molecule and I really really believe it so. To make a long story short. Okay. So we have inhaled nitric oxide. We've had it for years. We have covert nineteen comes along and experiment was tried and I think to go four or something where we had a related corona virus infection that didn't spread too much as some patients were given inhaled nitric oxide and it seemed to work those patients felt better. And they went home. So now when this epidemic hit, a five large clinical trials were started with nitric oxide and the results are almost in some of the data has leaked out already in. It's clear that nitric oxide is very effective in treating an patients with severe covid nineteen and the three main reasons. I'll make real quick I mentioned those reasons before i. Let me say that what kills patients with Covid nineteen is massive inflammation of the lungs massive blood clotting that's called thrombosis that kills the patients in examining the lungs from these patients. It was shown that the endothelium in the blood vessels was destroyed. What does that mean? It means they're not making nitric oxide. What happens if you don't make nitric oxide, you get azo constriction no blood flow to the lungs you'll get broncho constriction no air into the lungs and you lose the ability of the no to kill the virus remember no kills viruses. So for all those three reasons and because no goes down patients die. Now by taking the inhaled nitric oxide, you restore everything that thrombosis fairly rapidly disappears these patients breathe again they come out of the ICU in a couple of weeks they go home now a few patients. That's been reported for a few patients. There are hundreds of other patients still on the clinical trials and the FDA forbid the release of the data until the trials are complete. But I promise you. It's going to work. Yeah. It's. So these are already patients that if they have if they are dealing with obesity. Insulin resistance obesity type, two diabetes they're already not producing enough. Oxide, so they're already vulnerable in their day to day life. Dan We already know that not everybody who gets exposed to the virus. We had Jeffrey Bland the godfather of the Functional Medicine Movement researcher PhD was in a lot of work under Nobel. Prize winner Linus Pauling years ago, and he says, you know not we know not everybody that encounters the virus necessarily gets it. So we know that our immune system plays a role. We know that the nitric oxide that we that we create our nose ends up destroying pathogens for some people. And obviously for other people who are exposed to a lot and don't produce the levels of. That would be being produced a healthy person. They can become a lot more vulnerable it just another reminder that whether it's corona virus is some sort of other future pathogen. This is a reason why we want to be paying attention to this miracle molecule. Es. Thank you for pointing that out. That was the first part of your question which I failed to answer. You know sometimes I get carried away with my answers but that point is is well taken that those individuals who have an underlying problem mainly a decrease of nitric oxide production from type two diabetes or from poor diet sedentary lifestyle. Those individuals are going to be at higher risk for developing the more serious consequences of Corona virus infection you're absolutely correct. You. Know I want to zoom out a little bit and talk about. Some of the other things that also inhibit nitric oxide production that a lot of people won't necessarily think about one of the things is about some of the mouthwashes that are out there on the market and tell us about that. This might be neutral. God you know as much as I do about nitric oxide drew that's fantastic A. Well. Our. When we eat, we eat lots of root vegetables, leafy vegetables that contain nitrite and nitrate and all three minus no two minus and these nitrates that we take in actually a pretty healthy because they help to boost the production of nitric oxide in the body, they're actually converted to nitric oxide. Three to you can kind of think, even if you're not a chemist at certain enzymes might be able to convert that Eno and that's exactly what happens. Now in the mouth, we have a very important enzyme that converts trade. Tonight Trite. So three to no two. That's the enzyme is in the mouth. and then you swallow no two into your stomach. Aches absorbed into the blood and that forms in Oh. In it's carried throughout the body. It's great I mean there are many ways to form Ano and that's one way to form An. Oh so read lots of Spinach Kale. Ruge beats urine good shape but the thing is is that if you're going to do all that, don't use a mouthwash because the mouthwashes have ingredients in them that kill. And really kill the enzymes that make the nitrite and the no those. The those molecules, those substances in the mouthwash of course, do kill the bacteria that cause bad breath. Yes and believe me some people do need that. There's no question about it but. The same mouthwashes will block no production. So I've written letters and I really never heard back but the the. I don't even know what industry to call it the mouthwash industry. needs to come up with different kinds of chemicals that will affect selectively the enzymes that cause bad breath and leave the nice ones alone that make nitric oxide and then we'll be in much better shape. Yeah and it's so important to look at because if you take a step deeper. So many of the ADS that I grew up watching during like you know mid eighties and nineties everybody remembers those ads for I'm not gonNA name the brand or company, but kills ninety nine point nine percent of bacteria in the mouth. Well, we know that not back bacteria are not this big enemy they're part of us. In fact, they more likely employ us than we employ. Them, they're essential in all aspects of our health and they're plentiful in our oral microbiome in our nasal microbiome and gut microbiome as listeners know here. So just a small piece of advice and you know not having mouthwash and there's plenty of other solutions willing to some other past episodes where going deeper and digging tear gut health could actually improve your breath because again we'll have. biomarkers. Essential App they might be having microbiomes. In. The GI tract you can eliminate bad breath I read lots of articles about that. It's so true and it's so connected. doctrinaire I want to zoom out again and talk about just your general curiosity because. Only were you awarded this, Nobel? Prize, which is such a high honor. As I continue to read about your work after that, you also continue to keep on connecting the dots especially for practical things that we can all do at home through the awareness. Diet modifications as you've mentioned them emphasis on exercise which will come back to so I wanNA. Ask You. Tell us about this curiosity and you mentioned that you had bad teachers growing up right and so you wanted to explore and half things better explained. But how did your parenting or your upbringing? Support the curiosity that you naturally had. Okay. Well, it was really very mixed. Let me explain Kind of an it's an enigma. You see my parents were both born in Italy. My Dad was born in Naples and my mom was born in Sicily. And despite that difference, they actually fell in love and got married. We always joke about that and my brother and I were the guinea pigs to the greatest food. You could ever eat because neither one ever agreed on what to add. It had to be Neapolitan or Sicilian. So wound up being both and how can tell you is delicious and it was Mediterranean and very, very healthy. So. The problem. Was this. Maybe it wasn't a problem. My parents did not speak English when I was born I was born in Brooklyn. New York. They came over you know a few years before they met in New York dot married. I came along in nineteen forty one. So when I started elementary school, the teachers told my parents that my English was terrible. But my Italian was great and that I was GONNA have difficulty learning in that class unless I really shaped up. So. My Mom's stopped speaking Italian. My Dad was a carpenter. He he couldn't even read not even an Italian he he was uneducated. My parents never went to school not even the first grade never went to school. And despite that handicap, I was able to climb to the top of my profession. and. Get awarded Nobel Price. So that is remarkable i. Agree. But it's because they couldn't help me that I knew I had to help myself and I was afraid and embarrassed when I didn't know the answer to something in school. So I would read and read and try to get the answers you know before I went to school so that I would not look like such a fool you know in class and spell something wrong give the wrong answer I i. that's the way I was I I wanted to be correct I never wanted to be better than anyone else. Of course, not I just wanted to be like everyone else and so I, I worked and I struggled and I work. And I was able to develop a passion and motivation to study and stay with. The kids in class and that's really How it started. The in hearing about the story of your parents and parents and other talks that you've given in podcast I. Think one central thing is that you? Yes your parents may not have been able to support you in the way that we see a lot of today like helicopter parents really getting involved in the academics and. You know hovering over, which is very, not very healthy but they they didn't get in in the they didn't get in the way as much for the curiosity that was there in fact I remember an anecdote that you shared, which is You wanted a chemistry set to start creating these fireworks right and. Your parents initially said no, but I think later on, you convince them that this was important part of my learning and this is going to help me which obviously exactly. My Mom she knew me my mom, she asked me why did I wanNA chemistry set? I said, well, I I wanna read the booklet and I want to do experiments using the chemicals in chemistry set, and she would look at me and say but Luigi that's my name and Italian Lou is Luigi. You're only ten years old. What are you going to read? What are you going to do? So she says, what else do you want a chemistry? Is that for? Of course, I, didn't tell her. My father was different my father. I overheard my mom and dad speak and they speak with a loud voice even though they're not yelling at each other remember they are Italian. So my dad would tell my mom. Look. Can't you see that he wants to do something that we've never done before and we don't understand. Let him do it. Let him do it and my mom finally agreed and whatever I do. I made one of the strongest firecrackers possible and I blew up the fireplace in the backyard and my mom spent the next two months telling my dad I told you i. told You my. You know kids are going to get into their mission of, but if you let them explore sometimes that mischief ends up turning into a Nobel prize. On on on the topic. I would be remiss if I didn't get a chance to at least check in on it takes back twenty two years ago almost to the date now and tell us about where you were and what the setting was. When you got the call or heard the news. Well, you know for ten years prior to nine, hundred, Ninety, eight, many of my research colleagues and especially the people in my lab. But always tell me you know this year, you're going to get the Nobel Prize. Don't worry. You'RE GONNA get the prize and I would always say I'm not worried I said all I WANNA do is do my work make important contributions to humankind. Please don't remind me of the Damn Nobel prize it wasn't a goal that you were pursuing. Oh. My God no drew I always tell my students, my post Docs, young professors that should never be a goal in your mind. I mean, every investigator I've seen who I've heard them say you know I gotta get a Nobel Price. So I got a beef up my research and do this and do that not only have they not gotten the Nobel prize but they have become poor scientists. You never go after a prize you do your work and you answer important questions that have not been answered before in any way you can and. If you answer them. And if you're lucky. Then you'll get a Nobel prize had never go after the prize itself and I never did any time anybody started talking about the prize I told him I told her to shut up. You Know I. Mean I knew. Of all the pressure that no Nobel prizes were announced in the first or second week of every October. So, for I must admit eight nine years before you know I, Kinda just You know maybe the phone will ring in the bedroom at three in the morning. Noon Stockholm time, but I would just dismiss it and get it out of my head. So at that particulier I actually forgotten about it. Accepted an invitation to go to France and to Italy to give a talk. So, apparently when I was on a short flight from. Niece France to Naples. Italy. Where my dad was born many many years before that and he passed away many years before the prize was was awarded. During that flight, Stockholm came out with the announcement that I got the prize. So my plane is leaning Naples and you know I'm getting ready. I was sitting in the front of the plane I get up and I go onto the stairs to walk down onto the tarmac. Naples a small airport you walk down atomic I look up and. Hundreds of people with camera flashes, going off all these bright lights and I'm thinking the first thing I thought was. Maybe the president of Italy's is on the same plane. So I turned around I didn't see anybody important. So walked down the stairs and there was my friend who invited me to give a talk he comes over to me goes Lou. Lou Have you heard the news and I said? Oh. What knows he says he re this. and. He shows it to me and it was the press release from the Karolinska. Institute that awarded the Nobel Prize to me. So I saw that I saw my name and I swear to you I lost strength in my legs. I went right down on the tarmac and they helped me inside the airport and I have been celebrating ever since for twenty two years incredible what a story but I think the moral of it should be, which can be applicable in addition to the celebration to everybody's life. Is that that goal that you think that's Out that, it's you shooting for actually one of the best ways to let it go and just do your work desire work. Dear duty as they say in the I was raised in the Hindu faith I don't identify by that has now but I still look upon those principles they say do your Dharma and don't worry about the fruits of your labor. So you do Dharma which is your purpose what's your Gruber's yet that that is absolutely so true I mean, you know many professionals they'll look for certain goal. Okay. So if you're an athlete your quarterback. To break all the records in book you WanNa, get six touchdowns in a game. That's okay. That's fine to think of that way. You know you're writing a book you're writing a book, and then as you're writing it, you wanted to a New York Times bestseller you know. So you're right it better and better, and and you wait and see those are good goals but the Nobel prizes is very different. Not many are awarded since nineteen O one, they've been about nine hundred Nobel prizes awarded total and in medicine where I got mine is about two hundred and twenty five Nobel prizes total since nineteen one, there's not many of us. You know you just have to go and do your best science and don't keep the Nobel Prize in the back of your head because you know why that brings out the best the worst in you. You may fudge few numbers to get it just right. You may do experiments to not to test your hypothesis but maybe to show that you're wrong hypotheses might be correct. You see you can do things like that and and lie and cheat now in an athlete. Who is going after the A heisman trophy you can't lie cheat if you don't play well, you don't get it. So it's okay to have that as a goal. Each shared a funny story on another talk that I heard that basically. You know if I understand the timeline correctly and please correct me if I'm wrong because I could be. Basically, the year that you were awarded, you talked about the makeup of the number of men that were part of the Nobel Committee that were choosing you as the prize and how there might be a link to something. Can you share that with our audience and of course, of course this is hilarious. And I said in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, two. We discovered that nitric oxide is what causes. Sexual arousal and penile erection six years later is nine hundred, ninety eight, right. So was in March of Nineteen, ninety eight that defies a pharmaceutical company marketed. Viagra which FDA approved well, only a few months after that. In October. Of the same year ninety eight, the Nobel prize for nitric oxide is announced. So I'm thinking you know there was my wife and I'm thinking. What was this a coincidence or what? So I decided to look up the committee members of the Nobel Committee for medicine head. I found that the majority of them were men over the age of sixty. Yeah, you know that's been a joke for the last twenty two years whenever I see these people in Stockholm 'cause I go a lot. I've been to many other ceremonies I I make the you know the people the committee members and so on. So they always remember that statement and they never deny it. Let me tell you. Maria's so funny on that topic, you know people who Austin said you know. Like Viagra and they found like this like for male sexual performance they have Viagra for for women. Why isn't it? They don't have a pill and Many of our podcast guests have talked about this but women rightfully. So they're beautiful divine way they're much more complex than men. It's not a simple solution to create our arousal as simple as men are in. My hope is that somebody does find something to support all women that are out there I can add something to that if you'd like. I was privy to a lot of research that was eventually published by Pfizer but and we did some experiments in our laboratory to without getting into details. But in in adult women. these were. We were able to get samples of their erectile tissue from the clitoris. These patients who obviously passed on and we were able we got approval to study. CER- certain tissues to look at erectile to look at erectile function because in the clitoris, there's a lot of erectile tissue as as we all know. So nitric oxide is still a mediator no question about it and in experiments that were done but company saw fit not to go in that direction to develop let's say a pink pill. To treat sexual arousal problems in women, the companies didn't go through with it I urge them to go through with it. I thought it would be a very good idea they did not but it turns out it turns out drew that tens and tens of millions of women take. BIOGRA-. which absolutely increases sexual arousal. The only thing that a woman has to do is take roughly double the dose because as you said, it's A. Bit More complicated and what they need to do is double the dose but the good thing about Viagra is that it's incredibly safe. It's an incredibly safe drug. There are no side effects. So that's a good thing. Yeah. A very good thing for sure and we want options on the table, and for sure we want people to explore down the pathway of lifestyle and exercise. It's amazing. One touch on exercise for a moment here. What's the relationship for those that are not familiar when it comes to exercise and it seems to be that sweating and lifting heavy things is important process and part of nitric oxide. So why is that? How does that happen? Okay, it's very, very simple. This was discovered about twenty years ago and then capitalized on and it's it's so simple. You know what? I always tell people drew that science. Is. Ten percent fact and ninety percent common sense. Think about that for a second. Okay. So we're exercising. Makes a difference whether you're swimming weightlifting volleyball. Running bicycling whatever you know you're moving you when you exercise your cardiac output, of course, goes up your heart stimulated high faster heart rate faster force of contraction your cardiac output goes up more blood flow throughout your body. What is so unique about the arteries is that when blood flows through the arteries, it creates a force on those endothelial cells. You know just imagine water going high-pressure through a hose. Now imagined blood going through high pressure through an artery, it creates a force on the endothelial cells. Well, the mechanisms have been worked out beautifully that force stimulates this enzyme no Cintas to make lots of Ano-. Lots of no why Comes to logical. Well don't you want to increase blood flow to your working muscles. So Enos of as later widens the blood vessels more blood flows through. Why do you want more blood to flow through? Well, blood has oxygen bound to the open but has nutrients you're eating whatever nutrients you want to deliver all of that to the working muscles in addition when your muscles are working, they make metabolites lactic acid that can be very painful. So by improving blood flow, you're also washing out the blood from the other end of the muscles you're removing galactic asset so. That is why. Exercise generates nitric oxide for the physiological purpose of improving your performance and endurance. But I want everyone to keep in mind that same nitric oxide that's dilating your vessels. Is, going throughout your body keeping you healthy to your brain to your heart. This is why for five thousand years people have been saying that exercise is good for your health. Nobody knew why? Until about twenty years ago so at least one explanation for that is nitric oxide. I'm sure there's many more but listen I'm going to take advantage of nitric oxide right now. Yeah. There's other factors like creating and F, in the brain and a few things but nitric oxide seems to be one of the primary ones that are there especially for the cardiovascular, which is your work is been built on and the best part about it is it's a free tool. It's a free tool that we all have and it works better than most medications that are on the market with zero side Effects Oh. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. You know I I trained pharmacologist. So what that means is the pharmacology is the study of the action of drugs on the body and also what the body does to the drugs. So I'm trained in that way to understand all these interactions. Okay. and. I can tell you from all of my training. Is that I don't like to take drugs. Okay. Because I know what they can do. Some drugs are very, very safe. Some drugs you know at low dosage, conceive your life taking. Fifty sixty milligrams of aspirin. You know that is very, very helpful. And some drugs have to be taken drew if people have life threatening high blood pressure. which can kill them within a year. They've got lower that blood pressure. I'm sorry you've gotta lower that blood pressure or you don't have to worry about that blood pressure much longer and only way to lower their blood pressure that we know of today in our state of ignorance is to take certain drugs that are known to lower the blood pressure later will have more natural ways to lower the blood pressure you know. But but right now you know in some cases I have to support drugs but ninety percent of the time there are alternative ways and you should seek those out before you take drugs. Now, that's grants this about having the opportunity on the table and not deep prioritizing what traditionally have been seen as soft interventions. There's been a lot of people great physicians you know most of my. Family is physicians coming from an Indian background or their individuals that work in healthcare, and they unfortunately just were doing their best super small into the best schools but they weren't taught about diet. They weren't taught about why it's important to breathe through the nose, but this is all aspects of life, and then now we're so lucky we have the Internet people can listen to podcasts they. Can read books they can have sophisticated conversations and everybody including the doctors that are out there can get educated on actually what works and makes a difference for people. Yeah. That is that is so true. You know people like you do a great job to get that message out there get people to think about or get people to interact and You know that's the way to do. It and now that we are in this pandemic, actually it's a lot easier to do the last time. I was at an airport was in February and no normally, I make two or three international trips a month. Can you imagine that and now it's all through zoom podcasts conventions and so on and You know I'm gaining a couple of pounds but I'm trying to watch what I mentioned. The pandemic and the current state of the world that we've in. Pretty, much anywhere. You Look People are talking about twenty twenty being a heck of a year right a lot. In this year and you know it's easy to turn on the news and see the negativity that's out there about the current state. When you look at the year and believe me there's obviously being you feel the same way to is been some very very just a heart wrenching traumatic things the debts that have come from Cova, the state of the economy. That's their kids that can't go back to school and are suffering with their own learning process and anxieties that come as so much. But challenging and tough things that have happened this year along with that because we all know about that what have you seen to be some of the silver linings that you think will come from this difficult but potentially eye-opening year? Well there are few they're also met with the BAX. You know depending upon. Who says what especially in politics and so on I won't get into that. But what what I see as a positive is that? You know maybe people will start depending or relying more on science you know sciences so important to to pay attention to especially scientific facts. You know I always tell my friends that scientific facts are just that their facts and they're not subject to a matter of opinion you know opinion come you can apply an opinion to an unproven theory. Let's say but if you have scientific facts, well, it's a fact by definition, it's knowledge and it's not subject to a matter of opinion what we've we've learned from all of this I think is that by practicing certain A procedure such as wearing a mask social distancing and so on. You know we're more aware of our surroundings. This will be very protective in that will refrain we will not get the the virus as easily nor will we transmitted to other people and what I think I've heard many many people say is that since we've been wearing masks and keeping social distancing, it's interesting we haven't really. And I don't mean this in any funny way we haven't smelled anyone's breath. We haven't been close enough to people to smell their perfume or their breath and I suddenly realized as it was just a few weeks ago that since February. I haven't had any sniffles any influenza, any flu, any anything because all of those are transmitted by going through. Lungs. So this may be a good way to be safe during an influenza that has nothing to do what the GARONA virus. There's just my own thinking and I think that's GonNa come out later. But what I'm hoping for is, of course, the development of a safe and effective vaccine I know the many of the scientists doing this I'm a scientist I know what they're doing they're taking. Their time because they want to do it right and just like vaccines have worked in the past for polio for influenza for you name it, I mean. So vaccines of work we will see a great vaccine for the the corona virus. It'll take time to get everybody the vaccine. Sure. Meanwhile, we have to be careful, but we will get out of this we will get out of it. It's very hopeful message and Knock on wood that we're heading in that. Direction. You gave a statement at. Congress and when I was looking at a by wasn't sure if that was in the Canadian Congress for the US Congress, but you can clarify. And that statement was I'm paraphrasing here. But only in America, can the son of an uneducated carpenter climb to the top of his profession and go on to receive the Nobel Prize in medicine. And when you look at the current state of. Sciences and education the US. How can we create a better environment to have and support kids especially individuals that come from? The. Underprivileged background to go deeper into the sciences and make it more of a part of education. Okay. That was that was very good and I did make that statement. And I want to say why? Because it puts things in perspective I was asked along with a few other notable scientists to testify to our United States. House of Representatives to a subcommittee that decides the budget of what is called the National Institutes of Health, the NIH or National Institutes of health sponsors or funds ninety percent of the biomedical research done within the US. So we're talking about you know billions and billions and billions of dollars, and so there was a there there. Congress had not increased the budget for some time and there were many young investigators like you point we want to bring in young people if they're interested in science, let's bring them in, but they need to have money to do the research, and so the the nih asked me as well as several other people to go testify to this subcommittee to see if we could increase the budget to. To provide funds for these new young investigators and the rest of us as well. So we met for a couple of days and you know there. Were some members of the house in some senators they're listening? And they would say, well, why Professor at narrow do should be increased the budget for? The NIH for for. Health and not increase the budget for something else like the army and navy and so on. And I said you know because I did my homework I said listen I said you the budgets you have already for the other organizations are in the trillions of dollars you have so much money there I said, you don't have nearly as much money in the National Institutes of Health and I looked at them and I said, what is more important to you your children and your family's Isn't it health or what's the most important aspect for you is in at your health and well being I said, listen we in America scientists in America can do a fantastic job in bettering our science I said. I'm a prime example I said An. My parents were born in Italy. Came to the United States didn't speak English my dad was a carpenter. Okay and yet I was able to do all this research and get noble. Prize. How did I do that and I said only in America can the son of an uneducated Carpenter Wind Nobel prize? and. The implication there was because the Nih America was giving me the opportunity and the funds to do my research. That was so good that it wound up getting a Nobel price and so I remember they paused they looked at each other. They ended that particular session that was the end of the session and we left not knowing anything and a few months later. We learned that President Clinton accepted the proposal to increase the NIH budget and you know over the next four years, they doubled the damn budget. Incredible. What a legacy, a true story you can look at how many. Amazing. Fan. Why it's powerful story and it just shows that. Again. It's been a tough year and there's many people that will argue and say that there's really fundamental challenges here in the states, which is true right? It's true. Of course but as also an immigrant to this country, I was born in Nairobi Kenya my parents were also born there were four generation Kenyans originally ancestry's from India? The United States is is a very unique place that you can have situations like that because of public funding the infrastructure, the collaboration of sciences, and it's another reason to celebrate of how good it is. That doesn't mean they aren't things that we want to improve it just to celebrate the beauty that's there, and also to protect it. As you hinted to earlier, you know I know we said we won't get into politics. Love you can you feel free to get into politics want to but? Anybody that's going to degradate that system that's going to be Anti Science Institute. Thank you. Is Really, fundamentally hurting the core what America's Yes drew you know you're right I do not understand. The current administration in its inability to understand and trust science I. Mean You know I don't get it you know in the I don't think many people understand this in this country. Abraham. Lincoln back in the eighteen hundreds. He wanted to know more about science and what had had to offer. The politicians and the country and the betterment of the people. So he established a an organization and Academy it's called the National Academy of Sciences. He established that way back then and it's still with us. Today is a a lot of members and many of us. You know elite scientists get elected to the National Academy of Sciences. The purpose of the National Academy of Sciences among others. is to advise and counsel the President and Congress on scientific matters pertaining to global and local. Economies. And Health. Okay Our current president not once has ever gone to the National Academy of Sciences. To seek that information and on a few occasions, one parts of the academy went to him in Congress to talk about the urgency of climate control. He walked out and would never interact with scientists again and said that we were all crazy. But all of us Nobel laureates got together to write a letter to him and to Congress and to the National Academy of Sciences which is published in the New York Times just to denounce this kind of incredible behavior which could only destroy this country. So you know and let me tell you and I'm proud to kill everyone this. You just heard me say some not so good remarks about President Right. You want to hear something else. I am a Republican, so there. I. Appreciate you being vocal and sharing your thoughts you know I. Think Civil Discourse regardless of what people believe identify with is the foundation of also America having a chance to talk about things even if people have a different viewpoint and you know going back to science science is not perfect but nothing is perfect. It's always evolving but it's not a vast conspiracy of people trying to topple one side or pushing initiative through and the way that we. Present, and bring new ideas to the foray I was. Max Pollack Nobel Prize winner who said science advances you know sometimes unfortunately, one death at a time I believe in. You know sometimes, it happens just through time and the introduction of new ideas that things get brought in. But those new ideas that are brought in are also based on science and that's part of evolution that's there and I thank you for the. Reminder on that is that fundamentally everybody that's out there that's working in this field and industry they're good people wanting to present new and interesting ideas and help solve problems. Are there bad apples in any line of business or any line of area of course they are but the vast majority of people are good and trying to save you and your families and make the world a healthier place. Of course well said, I couldn't agree more. Dr Ignore this has been a absolute pleasure and a blast to go down memory lane with you here about your life's influences about receiving the Nobel Prize about not chasing goals and instead of focusing on our Dharma. That were meant to do and most importantly a reminder and for some people in an introduction about the power of this miracle molecule trick oxide, it's been a pleasure and you've lived upped to. What your true passion purposes, which is, you've taught us well on this podcast and I'm so grateful for you. Well thank you very much. Do I really appreciated I think that you've asked them fantastic questions and we've had a delightful discussion. I have to say one of the best ever for me and it's always nice to be able to discuss this with people than just write articles for scientific journals which can get boring after a while. So you absolutely and if you enjoy this podcast, please share with your friends that would mean the world with us and helped somebody breathe better by taking advantage of nitric oxide. Thank you again and we'll see you next week.

Recapture the Rapture: Biohacking Sex, Tantric Breathwork, Plant Medicines For Orgasmic Enhancement & Much More!

"On this episode of the Ben Greenfield Fitness podcast the best lack. All conviction. While the worst are filled with passionate intensity. And you can trick yourself out. So it's almost sort of like gas brakes and steering can all be controlled by varying the rate volume depth and even content about? We are needed at full strength and we can't be at full strength if we're limping and crimped and collapsed and contracted around our trauma. Help. Performance nutrition longevity. Ancestral living biohacking. and. Much more. My name is Ben Greenfield. Welcome to the show. Well. Well, well, today's episode is interesting slash probably not safe for work because we talk about the existence of the practice of making babies and how to dramatically upgrade the pleasure that one might derive from said practice as a matter of fact, after recording this pretty fun episode actually with my friend Jamie Wheel I got a hotel room a couple weekends later with my wife. And we proceeded to have an amazing seven or eight hours digging into just about everything you hear described on this podcast from different nitric oxide and breath work and tantric protocols. Yes. Including the use of with it's it's been quite some time since I have since I have purchased whipped cream canisters, balloons, and crackers on Amazon and done little NAS so to speak. To some of the Microsoft plant, medicine protocols that we discuss too. Yes. Even nipple clamps and I believe that's the first time. I've ever said Nipple clamps in a podcast introduction. We had a great time. No, and honestly you know I love to explore all sectors of. Human Physiology and biology. We're all adults that we talk about this stuff. I believe most people last I checked like to orgasm some people like to do it multiple times in one period of time and you're learn all that stuff on today show. So hopefully, I've given you enough of a of a teaser pun intended I suppose in this case for you to sit back and listen to the rest of this episode, which is brought to you although for such a venture as I've just described, you named the caffeinated version, the brand new kion DECAF coffee if you struggle with. Caffeine if you find, it affects your sleep or you just love the taste of coffee anytime of day but don't want to disrupt your sleep patterns. Then you should know about the most delicious purist DECAF coffee that now exists we have a special water processing protocol. We put our DECAF through I. Don't know the exact percentage, but basically, there's barely any caffeine in there at all compared to most other DECAF brands. But unlike again, most other DECAF brands certified organic specialty grade, we regularly tested to make sure it's free of Mold micro-toxins, yeast and pesticides get this stuff from our are. which are typically in Central America regions in fair trade like farm type of compounds we medium roasted to maximize health flavor we decaffeinated without any chemicals again, just pure mountain water. You've seriously never tasted or try to decaff like this one of my buddies just text me today he's like Holy, Hell Dude what would you do? This is the first taste of the DECAF that really tastes this good and this much like just a regular good old amazing cup of coffee. So as a brand new product, it's flying off the shelves and if you want to get some for yourself before it's too late, you can get over to get kion dot com get. Zero Dot Com. And the code you can use over there is be G F two zero that'll save you a whopping twenty percent off your first order of DECAF coffee. This podcast is also brought to you by my friends at Juve. Juve does red light therapy I. Suppose that goes quite fittingly hand-in-hand with today's podcast about sexual performance because not only do I use juve for my hormone balance because it can induce the late excels in one's testes to up regulate testosterone production but a photo bio modulation, which is the science behind a which these devices were actually created can do wonders for college in for sleep patterns for thyroid for just overall.

Well folks it's been a little while since I've had today's podcast guests on the show. He joined me years ago when he was talking about this book called stealing fire how Silicone Valley the Navy Seals and maverick scientists are revolutionizing the way we live and work, and whenever I talked to this cat, I always ask myself why haven't I had him on the podcasts more recently or more frequently because he is a wealth of knowledge on both the psychological and the practical aspects when it comes to kind of. Tweaking of optimizing performance and flow states, he has just written a really great new book that I have seen bits and pieces and previews of and that I'm waiting with baited breath to get my hands on the full copy of it's called recapture the rapture rethinking God sex and death in a world that's lost its mind. So aside from having kind of. A shitty title I. Think It could be pretty good book. It's actually a great town recapture the Rapture A. my guest. In case you didn't guess his name is Jamie will in Jamie is a peak performance expert The is this is what he does. He engineers people to achieve a flow state in this book is really about kind of engineering. Many. He Donald. Experiences including sex and Just you guys know the thing that that I kind of made me want to get Jamie on the podcast was hearing him talk about some of the more advanced ways that he hacks the the flow experience during sex, and so I want to dive into that today show, which means if you're driving in a minivan with your five children, this might not be the best one to listen to right now at least. But. I also want to get into some of the other aspects of his book because he works with professional athletes who are in the NFL the NBA, the MLB Google Goldman Sachs iskoe y Peo- US Naval War, college special operations, command I mean this this guy is really in demand so. Extremely privileged to have on the show Jamie welcome man thanks for having been. Yeah for sure. So. This book recapture the rapture. What exactly you know if you were if you're hanging out with somebody on an elevator for a disproportionately long period of time, how would you describe this book? Yeah. Well, I mean the simplest is it's kind of the what turned out to be the sort of required sequel to stealing fire. So if stealing fire was you know obviously conceived about five years ago written about three years ago saying, Hey, it really feels like there's this groundswell of people tinkering with consciousness for all sorts of. Positive outcomes and then of you know after that, we had Michael Pollen. We've had them sort of the psychedelic renaissance, Tim Ferriss and everybody else you know it's it's become sort of very much more visible that those kinds of state seeking experiences are becoming more normalized. But then in the three years since the book has come out, it's it's very much seemed like a children's crusade like a bunch of people are just breaking the sticks off bottle rockets and still hoping they'll go where we point them. So this book recapture the rapture is an is basically trying to answer the question of what happens. Once we steal fire, how do we not burn? Down the house. Yeah. Well, we'll be example of somebody. How did you describe it? The analogy of the of the bottle rocket Oh, just breaking the sticks off them and then still hoping that you need, you can hit their what will be an example of that going on right now that you think is is occurring this. So called breaking sticks off bottle rockets well, I mean, you know it's it's an easy target at this point it's gone a little dormant in the last four or five months of quarantine and this and that but basically the entire west coast Psychedelic Kaci Benny Man Neo Contra. House ceremony sound Baath culture, which just thoroughly shat the bed. You know and and crawled up its own asshole and you know in a paroxysm of instagram narcissism. and. You know versus Shit we have been grounded access to you or simply hijacked the keys to the Kingdom. You know the kinds of initiate Tori experiences and Yeah. A non ordinary states, revelatory stays that used to be the domain of monks, martial artists and and mystics, and now we just have people with no learning no dedication no commitment sourcing from those places and then promptly putting in. The ditch and not just in the ditch where like a Tibetan Lama would have cautioned you or a zen lineage teacher would have said Hey. Watch out for this. You know not even the kind of nuanced and subtle ones literally like smack DAB back into the same ditch that their baby boomer parents put it in forty years ago. You cultivate tendencies magical thinking addictive obsessive behaviors disconnection from practical realities. Cavalier approach often in my opinion bastardize use of plant medicine just because it is considered a noble and laudable thing that people are using as an excuse in many cases to get high and say that they're finding themselves on the weekend you know in their whatever New York condo Shaman but yeah, I I. I agree I. It's At least still cova up pretty out of control. I had to laugh at one of our mutual friends who has a very well known podcast of his own and he was just casually describing a thirtieth birthday for his girlfriend down in Kabul where they were engaging quote unquote party medicines. I think we I was like you. You mean, you mean Ketamine and ecstasy. Let's let there's there's not actually a category called potty medicines. Right and neither should the two phrases or two words. Party medicine necessarily go hand in hand that often. I'm always going to raise an eyebrow that. But but when we talk about these plants, obviously in the book stealing fire in my last interview with you, you did talk about as you've just alluded to how they can be used to hack the flow state to a certain extent as many of the other things that you talked about in you know stealing fire, for example, such as tweaking, respiration and breath work or. You know, for example, paying attention things like like Bagel, nerve town the adventures. especially extreme adventures, etc but. When when it comes to what the flow state has to do with sex and with partner connectivity. Can. You explain what? What the science behind that is or why that's important to think about? Yeah for sure I mean I mean. You know if you'll if you'll indulge me for cyclists of five minutes is setup as a wide these things might matter because in in writing stealing fire my initial thought was saying, Hey, extras like peace states no matter how we get there could be meditation breath work psychedelics, sexuality music extremes, extreme endurance sports you name it they take us literally ecstasies outside of ourselves outside of our waking conscious ego based identity and that when we do that, that's generally Supremely enjoyable but often quite profound and productive and helpful. And what I realize is that as I was reading that book, it was nominally about ecstasies but every time I would cite an example I would always be pointing to hey those peak states actually help us heal and those peak states actually help us connect and collaborate with each other. and. So then I realized it wasn't simply just you know an advocacy that we should go to the mountain top. It was actually much more like a full triangle param ID and that while ECSTASIES is at the top of the pyramid cusses deep-healing and communitize profound connection with other people are the bases of that pyramid. And it's feels like that is the sort of that is the geometry of our life. You know if you put those three things into motion, they become a spinning flywheel and we're forever seeing the highest heights remembering what we forgot using that inspiration information to come back down into our mortal fallible lives and bodies fix where we're broken. And do it in relationship and connection to each other. So that really felt like that's the sort of flywheel of becoming like like it's worth. We're we're always cycling through one of those three places and and if we get to pursue it sincerely enough over a long enough period with enough dedication to kind of our homework to acting on the things where shown that ideally at some point we become. Twice born humans we become homegrown. The Greeks call it throw bows the the most obvious visual images is Leonardo's truyen men someone balanced hadn't hot balanced masculine. Feminine. Balanced left and right and up and down where we're integrated, and we're poised to be expression bitter full expression, and and before we fully present I think that was a part of stealing fire that you talked about when you talk about the. That sense of being an individual and I you know gets replaced with that feeling of being a collective we and the community that you described is almost ecstatic state of unity but. From what I understood from your previous book stealing fire you only get that when you're also completely fully one hundred percent present. So we're talking about kind of the kind of the the the combination of ecstasy being in flow state in extreme presence allowing for some type of a communitize relationship between you know in this case, for example, to individuals who might be making love for example police. And you figure if there's a test case for, can we get along with another human? The first one is the diode. Hair or the partnership, specifically a romantic or sexual punish him. Because if we can't pull that one off because evolution effectively through the kitchen sink at that one you like whether we want to or not whether we know how to or not avalon has primed us to procreate. And when we do, there is a cascade of neuro chemistry that creates Perr. Bonding we literally sort of. To make love. Not. The actual act of coupling but literally active synthesizing the neuro physiological profile of affection and attraction and connection. So does feel I mean a it's a good test case if we can't figure out how to love the ones were with, we're pretty much as far as like trying to figure out well, peas. and. There's also this notion of all the evolutionary imprinting just to kind of finished the the the. The title recapture the Rapture is twofold. One. Is because you know there's Yates the poet right road that famous palm, the second coming you know an and in that in it, which was by the way like the most gould poem two. Thousand Sixteen like things fall apart the center can hold like really raw. The Wall Street Journal did a semantic analysis, an uncovered that But. There's another line in the that has haunted me for years, which was the best lack. All conviction. While the worst filled with passionate intensity. And if you look around our well these days whether it's conspiracy theories to not politicians to whomever right the worst are filled with passionate intensity. And they have hijacked the Mike of our collective future. So my inquiry was really well how how do the best of us the rest of us You know recapture our rapture are lower case rapture are healing our inspiration connection. So that weakened take back the wheel. From the nut hatches that are actually driving us towards literally the fulfilment of rapture ideologies and rapture ideologies is not just fundamentalist religious beliefs like isis or Christian. Zionists who want a Middle Eastern war to kick off on Magadan? It's it's techno singular. -Tarian it's people who were saying we're going to upload our consciousness to computers or we're going to. Piss off to Mars. It's any ideology. That HSIEH's the structure of saying the world as it is in fact. But. There's an inflection point coming and we can see it from here. and. When we get to that inflection, point me and mine like my crew, my tribe, we come up roses on the other side of that inflection point like things are demonstrably better for us over the therefore number four pin it. Never, end go off the cliff with no skid marks and never mind the collateral damage. and. So that's the kind of state of the world right now and right now the worst the most passionately intense was. Calling the shots so for US collectively to recapture our lower case rapture, our inspiration are healing in our connection. We have to have some form of technology that is open source that is scalable and that's anti fragile. So open source meaning it's kind of like the wordpress of reality here here's a here's here's an engine that you can use to build your own but you know there's different cultures there's different customs. There's different. Communities and identities there is no singular one size fits all solution and any any attempt to do that. No matter how well intentioned ends in Fascism. So let's not even go there. What's the sort of psycho spiritual equivalent of blockchain? That's configure oil. So scalable, it has to be cheap or free otherwise most people. The bottom several billion will never have a chance to experience it and it has to be anti fragile meaning that when things get worse, it gets better. So. For me. That's kind of like okay. Now, we're now into that situation like how do you heal the world? Via tools that everyone can pick up for themselves and make their own. and. How can we sort of bring a design centered approach to it literally like what would I do that design company do not what would Jesus do w w what would I do? And if you've seen like and I, think in two thousand, fifteen, they came out with their human center design toolkit because they're like, Hey, we design office chairs and design cool. Kitchen implements in snazzy clocks doesn't but the reality is is the way we go about creatively thinking about designing stuff is probably helpful all around the world for a Kenyan village you know or an Indian city or any of these just humans trying to solve the human stuff. So if you figure that out, you're like, okay. If, we wanted to be open source scalable. Then we should. We should for sure and we're trying to heal inspiring connect. Then, we should act as close to evolutionary drivers as possible because basically evolution has encoded us to do these certain things very very strongly. So if you think about it, respiration is a strong one. Right even the idea that something. I. Feel compelled to do every now again, exactly we feel compelled to do it and for anybody that's played with any former breath wake whether it's for Holler, breath work or whatever. You realize you your first crack static apnea. How long can I, hold my breath right? What always happens involuntary movements diaper matic attraction. Running out of oxygen they're not and there is to build up co two, but you're like, Holy Shit. So the first time I feel compelled to breathe I got more or less like forty to fifty percent more gas in the tank. You're that's that's interesting. Kind of weird but you're like, oh, evolution did it that way because if we cut it any closer? We would likely have snuffed it by accident more often than what sustainable rights built in this huge buffer as well as very, very strong incentives to get it right. Don't forget to breathe. Right next in that list sexuality like if we forget to procreate. then. We cease to exist. Right so that so literally, kitchen sink amount of incentive to ensure that with the exception of things like the Kama Sutra, which has a few pages on how or Japanese. Naval pillow books you know or the occasionally sort of body medieval sonnet. I mean most of for sure all primates, all animals, and then you know millions of years of hominoid evolution. We figured out how to do that with no instruction manual. You're like, okay. There's a there there now. So we've got respiration sexuality. And then just a general category of embodiment which just means how. We tune in shape living in these skins of hours in these meet suits, directly effects, bodies, and brains, shape hearts, and minds. So there's all sorts of long levers there and Bagel tone and other Endo cannabinoid system, and other key big metronome. In, our bodies are Kista and then you can think of amplifiers like substances and music. And if you take a look at those, you know what? We would normally call the kind of Big Five. You're like, okay. Respiration Sexuality Embodiment with the force multipliers of substances and music. Literally, the building blocks of all most transformative practices and even underpin most religious and cultural programming. We've ever had not always all at once, but in the in a kind of a mix and match toolkit. And and you know one of the things that you had you had sent over to me that I took a look at it was almost like a matrices for. For connecting a lot of these components specifically during the experience of sex to enhance I. Mean we we already know that there's there's kind of It's almost like this neuro physiological response to orgasm. That'll that puts one into into a flow like trance-like state that often begins to occur. You know do the oxytocin and in the press and release and everything else even even before an. Orgasm but there are there are certain ways that we can actually enhance that flow state or increase the ability to enter that that kind of trance-like state that we might only normally experienced during say like orgasmic threshold or Post. Orgasm. And in many cases and I found that absolutely intriguing when you started to to show me and talked me about some of these aspects of this so-called. What do you call it? The He Dhana Yoga matrices of becoming. I, mean sickly. So so yeah, I mean just just to kind of now now we can connect the connect the dots here, which is that if we have those five tools and could because my assumption is that the renaissance is doomed. Basically is that it's going to be commodified by venture capital and Big Pharma. It will become you know there will be a regression to the mean that many of the most idealistic promises of that of those experiences won't turn out to be the case, and even if it did start work meaning a whole lot of people powering up into goodness truth beauty and taking courageous stands for human dignity, it will get shut down the stroke of a pen. So it's highly fragile. It's highly susceptible to both state. And Corporate Capture So if we want somethin', it's more versatile. We kind of need to build the you know not the anarchist's cookbook. Famous book that was the most stolen book from libraries, which I don't think anymore. Yeah. Maybe not but how to build bombs with this stuff under your kitchen sink Instead instead it's more like the alchemist cookbook. What is a tool kit that anybody anywhere can use with minimal minimally exotic materials or practices that can actually get the job done of inspiration healing in connection so if you take a look at. One of the, there's several threads into this investigation for me but one of them was Rick Dobelin the founder of maps and I were sharing a stage with Jason Silva actually in San Francisco last year, and we were just chatting in between sessions and Rick was like Oh. Yeah. You know our most recent research is showing that the closest analogue to the. Md. Ama. PTSD therapy. So when they were taking veterans and they were taking survivors of. Childhood and domestic trauma and putting them under the influence of the you know the compound and then they were testing them. They were finding high amounts of oxytocin proactive as a present. And then Rick said Yeah you know and that the closest analogue we found is the post orgasmic? State. And you sort of think about that for a second and you're like, wow, you know this is a thirty year tens to hundreds of millions of dollar project trying to get a schedule, one substance through FDA approval and it's going further than it's ever been. It has profound impacts on the people who are fortunate enough to get to be a part of that sanction experience but it's complicated and it's fragile and it's not accessible to everybody and you're like, well, wait. So there's that option or how on earth can we get as many people as possible to that exalted state known as Post Gaz mic? She knows where you're like. Okay. So That's interesting. That's really really interesting and there's a book called love and other drugs by a Yale and Oxford duo. And they basically been making that case they've been saying hey. PSYCHOPHARMACOLOGY and even psycho-sexual pharmacology specifically they they spend time on md a oxytocin and a couple of other compounds can literally be a profound and powerful adjunct to couples therapy to closeness to all of those kinds of things and I don't know if you have you. Do you know Nicole Krauss I've you guys can you come across? Doesn't sound familiar actually. So now make me make me feel a bad about what am I missing out here? We'll know she she's awesome and you should for sure however on your show she's a Kinsey Institute. Former professor there she was at Ucla, and then she ended up peeling out and starting her own independent research think tank because she studies sexuality and shoes actually one. If you probably saw the headlines I, don't know when five years ago when there were some. Era of Ted, talks talking about the addictive nature of pornography. In her lab come out with actually a counter study saying actually it doesn't seem like sexual addiction is actually thing and they'd been actually measuring the physiology measuring the responses and she caught a tonnage shit for that one and then there was another one she did where they literally three D. printed a bunch of dildos had women select versus just like guessing. From, like rulers on a page, what was their preferred peanut size but they actually they actually did you know what did they call it? They said haptic preference. which basically meant rummaging around in a box addicts right pick one you like the best. And what it turned out that women tend to prefer penises that were slightly smaller for their longtime partners like the bigger for one night stands that kind of thing. So Johnson needless to say she has been in which was nominally correlated with higher testosterone, etc. so that's the whole like you know Lululemon Yoga check you know sneaking off from her retreated Ostlund go bang a biker in. COMAL. So meals to stay. She's she's steered into potentially controversial sexual subjects, but she's done it from the place of clinician. And wanted. Most interesting studies at least as far as kind of what I was tracking was the she's been researching the use of women's orgasm as pharmaceutical prescription. So she's literally gone. You know she's kind of reversed what Rick and maps have been doing, which is, can you simulate love via x Exxon Genus compound and can you actually instead make love the internal physiological response? And they're exploring it's used for depression for physical pain alleviation for all of these kinds of things and you're like, okay wow, that's really neat. I mean there there's a ton of taboos as a ton of kind of you know titillation and controversy around this but which is crazy kind of come full circle because female hysteria was once a medical diagnosis that. I think included among other things, sexual desire and female orgasm, and it was something associated with being. Batch it crazy and having hysteria, and now you're saying that you know the the ability for females appeal rayleigh. Orgasm could actually be something that could be diagnosed or could be prescribed for psychological health. Exactly. I think even aristotle went so far as saying women's Orgasms can prevent her from conceiving. Know so so yes, there's a long long story fear that right up to Cardi B. and wet pussy so. But. The point here is simply that. Oh Wow are natural physiological sexual responses can play a role in healing meet you know accused or chemical profile, and if you can get to it via a true diy methodology like sexuality and orgasm the versus a highly controlled rare questionable purity questionably toxic compound like MD, which would you choose? If in doubt, I would say, always go with the endogenous versus the. If there's a way to chew nor tweak our own systems, our own bodies and brains to create more of a substance hormone chemical, whatever it would be that is. Helpful or desirable that's almost always a safer. than ingesting or absorbing something from the outside because our body is mediating it, it's tuning dialing it optimally for us. It's peptides versus steroids, right? Right exactly. Exactly. That's a good analogy because peptides are simply acting a lot of times on the cell service receptor to induce an endogenous release of, let's say something like growth hormone versus juice injecting growth hormone. So you're looking at at more of an enhancement of the indulgence response well, I want to interrupt. Today's show to tell you about nicotine. We're talking about another of other compounds on today's podcast. You might as well throw another one in there because I'm a big believer in the science behind nicotine, which can help based on research studies improve everything from human performance to coordination to memory to reaction time to awareness a lot of nicotine products out there full of crap. But there is a company called Lucy they have gums and nicotine lozenges that's a play. A release dose, formula grams of pure nicotine. It's not just for smokers who want to stop smoking for anybody who wants a little bit of a clean smart drug neutral pick pick me up and this is one of the cleaner gums I've been able to find. Obviously nicotine is derived from tobacco. Nicotine is an addictive chemical proceed at your own addictive risk but. When used responsibly the steps a game Changer Has Winter Green Cinnamon in pomegranate for their flavors and their loss, which is actually FDA approved has a nice icy cherry flavor to it to for those who don't want to chew. So anyways, if you haven't tried the gum yet, you should any twenty percent off so use Code Ben Two zero and you go to Ben Greenfield fitness dot com slash Lucy as Ben Greenfield finished dot com slash l.. Y, and again, your code is Ben to zero for twenty percent off of any order. This podcast is also brought to you by speaking of things that are awesome for your brain and your body honey. Bee Pollen, propolis, Royal Jelly all the goodies that we can get from the bees but sustainably harvested and totally clean of all the nasty herbicides and pesticides and stuff you find in a lot of be products. My friends at beekeepers naturals have designed these really cool compounds that have no artificial ingredients, cheap fillers refined sugars, pesticide residue. Throat? Spray. Or really supporting your immune system and you recovery. If you want to stop counting sheep at night or find your happy place during a hectic day to duck out for a little while they have their beachill honey little bit cbd in it. They've got their be L. Our brain fuel to upgrade your mental performance in beat brain fog. They've just figured out how to had I suppose common bile Huckabee's so even the Royal Jelly, it has the neuro transmitter receiver. Calling and the fatty acids ten HDA, an amp one in one oxide which helped with attention and memory and other executive functions. So jeeze, I've I've now fills you on nicotine gum and how to boost your brain function with the bees. There's no way you're GONNA be stupid after listening to this podcast, but I need to tell you where to get the beekeeper stuff. She had a beekeeper's naturals dot com slash Ben. That's B. E. K. E. P. R. S. beekeepers. Carols just like it sounds beekeepers, naturals, dot com slash Ben, and you get fifteen percent off. If you just go straight to your, I'll no code necessary beekeepers, naturals, dot com slash Ben. Laying down as kind of like a groundwork of framing for this idea of enhancing sexual flow or or kind of like hacking into this sexual experience using some of these these techniques that you outline on the on the sex matrices One of the things that you tackle I is nitric oxide, and by the way for those you who are listening in a link to all this if you just go to, Ben, Greenfield fitness dot com slash recapture that's been grateful finish dot com slash recapture a link to to all the stuff that Jamie and I talks about include talk about including an image of this this yoga. But the the the first thing that you discuss is nitric oxide. For. You when it comes to using that on a practical level I've talked before about using, let's say like you know beetroot pumpkin seed, beet, juice, watermelon extra virgin olive oil the old school hack I used to do and I was bodybuilding backstage. We'd have red wine dark chocolate for enhancing Basil dilation when it when it comes to the nitric oxide component, what are some of your favorite tactics there? Yeah. Well, I. Mean again since we since we t respiration just to get people to super high. End, which is that oxygen and gets all the love. But there's really oxygen carbon dioxide and nitrogen right and and it's that blend of atmospheric air that we are dealing with nitrogen fundamentally in and so we mostly just sort of metabolising auction and spitting out a little bit more co two right. But by playing with the blending and ratios of those, you can meaningfully shift consciousness. You can up regulate yourself if you feeling flat or or lethargic, you can down regulate yourself if you're feeling stressed or anxious. Trip yourself out. So it's almost sort of like gas brakes and steering can all be controlled by varying the rate volume depth than even content of our breathing? and. So one of the things you can do is gas assisted breath work. and. Two of the most interesting ones is is Matt is either radically depleting co two via hyperventilation right? which creates Alkali alkaline blood. He creates the tingles the Techni all of the things that people have experienced if you've done anything resembling. Tropic or intensive. Breath work that can then lead to shifts in states of consciousness including visionary state standoff was, at Johns, Hopkins was one of the early LSD researchers who are actually powering with on a new breath work project at Hopkins famously substituted breath work LSD LSD was was scheduled an got as much or deeper experiences from people just doing that just massively blowing off co two. Into a a HYPO cabinet state. Oh. Yeah. I. It's actually a we'll do that a lot is we have a very weird family my wife and I will do either Wim Hof or tropic sometimes we we actually had an hour-long session last week in which prior to US sitting gazing, talking face to face completing some some some some journaling together being in a space together. We didn't our of whole tropic breath were just laid out flat in our back We also do I gazed with our boys and and we have a twenty to forty minute routine. We do in the sauna where we'll do the breath work and it puts you into this this state where you are indeed, you know blowing off a lot of co two and then you kind. Of Feel as shift slowly into this deep para sympathetic state afterwards, and it's wonderful for connectivity for for gazing and when it comes to nitric oxide are you actually increasing nitric oxide production v like the whole trope Acre or the Wim Hof in addition to blown off the CO Two? Yeah. That's a great question. I don't know I. Don't know that specific question I do know that. I am what am I? What am I I'm dumber than a bag of hammers and basically slow to impress. So basically like there's there's a way to do something I always want to pin it to eleven decide what the fuck. You produce nitric oxide in your nasal passages and your sinuses. So imagine if if you are indeed taking the breath in through your nose and out through your mouth, you would show him a pretty big increase in nitric oxide and then the other thing is that we know that one of the best ways to get rid of Sinusitis is humming like breathing through the nose and then humming because your nose I learned this when I interviewed James Next door who are. This really book called breath. Your nose is one of the few tissues that contains the the same tissue in it as the clitoris in the peanuts it can it can you can have an erection and so when you in through your nose, you increase the air circulation and the vibrations of that increase the production of nitric oxide in the nose and the sinuses and get this Lo Minister Direction. So if you are breeding into your nose and then audibly like Oh. Oh theoretically you're you're creating a lot of nitric oxide. Yeah. I think that was two thousand seven study from the Karolinska Institute in Sweden which was talking about is actually a fifteen times boost in nitric oxide with vibration of the nasal cavity actually. A. Fascinating. fucking hypothetical which I've written about and I had to really tread carefully because you don't want to. You know you just want to get out of your skis on this kind of thing but the idea of. Aboriginal Didgeridoo playing. Circular breathing. So a huge amount of very, very specific. Both cheek and nasal control the continue to create a continuous vibrant Tori drown through the didgeridoo instrument via the is. Almost. Certainly doing that thing right. You're doing secular as nose breathing for ages you're creating an acoustic drown, which is also transcend juicing and your mass an annual vibrant Tori would right up against your skull and cheekbones and Sinus cavity, and so the likelihood that the physiological mechanism. Of that is actually what was driss shifting shifting. Musicians into dream time is really solid and you know once you see that you realize like the Tibetan on Monday pod, my home at the COBB Realistic e Oh, there's a ton of basically psycho magical practices around the world that all involves some short Beiber Tori loop or mantra. And most of them again, other sort of out. which are high able to extend, vibrate and even the Hail Mary. In Catholicism, it's basically an eight to ten seconds eight to ten huts breath court hail Mary Grace Lewis with a blessing. Blessing through Jesus and if you just picture someone in the Middle Ages, you know anybody anywhere at any time kneeling and adopt charged liquid lit votive candles in front of one of the Saint of the saints that you're venerating and not surprised that people could have visionary or state experiences because of that heightened both breath control mechanism coupled with boosted nitric oxide production, and then some form of psychological and cultural state mediated state experience I've seen a deity I've been visited by saying I've had an insight from the ancestors whatever would be is endlessly fascinating to me. You're like Oh shit. Let's just like the cheat codes to like Niro anthropology. Can understand how we've always been doing this human thing together. Right, so so are you saying that that prior to sexist part of four play what you could do as a couple is just sit face to face and do like three to five minutes of Wim Hof breathing through the nose some kind of a or chance on the exhale to increase nitric oxide dump a bunch of Co two and kind of accelerate the passage into that flow state during love that would occur afterwards yet your continued dragging me back to the. And yes, we one hundred. percent. But I think this is. I do feel there's both sorta academic and an ethical responsibility to contextualized both here are the mechanisms of action so that people are actually empowered and have consent and choice they understand what they're doing and how it works, and then also the the human factor because. Without aggrandizing this too much like these are the Chico's to the universe and these has been the most closely kept secrets of adepts for thousands of years usually sharable only by pain of death and virtually no one ever got to use them. So the fact that we're like geeking out on it and it's like, Oh, here's because neuroscience because emory's 'cause oxytocin doesn't. The impact, the potency, etc. Like you can lose your fucking mind and you can wreck your life playing with these hacks they are. Literally, you're basically hot wiring the ecstatic circuitry of a primate nervous system and the question is for good or ill is entirely dependent on how we hold stuff right finished to finish the gas as we got three gases oxygen nitrogen, copying dioxide, oxygen gets all the love. But the other two are actually really quite interesting. You can massively decrease carbon dioxide by hyperventilating what we've just been describing, but you can also super boost it and Kaba Jen. Is An actual gas blend where you actually run seventy percent. Oxygen let's think how does it work percents co two With, thirty percent oxygen. So there's a little bit like scuba divers who will substitute helium or hydrogen that they will substitute other gases for nitrogen so that when you're diving deep underwater, you don't get you don't get no nitrogen causes so they'll swap out a different gas so that doesn't happen. You don't get intoxicated down low and they'll often boost oxygen in their scuba tanks so that you can send more rapid than you don't get the Benz, right? So we're we're just playing with that neck of the woods and and scuba divers were have been way down that road longer than we have. But. You can. You can play with combination and what combination will do is the exact opposite. So with thirty percents co two, that's basically one and a half times what. Seventy percents co two that is massively more. Co Two in your system than you would ever normally have you got thirty percent oxygen, which is one and a half times atmosphere. So you're actually you've got more of the red rich red blood cells than you would ever know what to do with. But at the same time, your internal alarm system is screaming mayday mayday mayday you're suffocating alive. Yeah. But in my opinion like buying a car carbon generators, those are those like seven hundred bucks or so right to. Purchase you to generate that would allow you to inhale carbon dioxide to that extent. I. Would I would question if you might be able to attain something similar with breath work but I don't know. Yeah and well, the thing that I mean I didn't even know about COBB agenda until last year when Dr Roger Walsh gave me his book and it was based it's called higher wisdom and it was just an oral history of the first PSYCHEDELIA renaissance. Two point if you say if you stay renaissance begs the question. But like if you say indigenous use for thousands of years was one point zero and then the nineteen fifties and sixties two point zero and where now living into you know the three point zero going back and seeing what those researches at in Manitoba Ucla at the at at Hopkins were doing in the late fifties to sixties mind boggling they were so ballsy and so creative and I mean like standoff back in Hungary was shooting people with like two hundred and fifty to five hundred. Mike's of Sandoz LSD, putting strobe lights in their face connecting them to e Jeez and Gov skin. And Blasting People Ucla folks were using it for schizophrenic children ages three to twelve. They were using it for college pain relief. In fact, the oncology center had such profound results with pain relief via the LSD twenty five at the time that the director of the hospital basically buried the evidence buried the papers because it was gonNA, fuck their entire business model. Of Pain Management. And so in those stories, I just stumbled across these two three different examples of the use of Kaba Jen as a precursor to LSD therapy and what they were doing was. And actually, it was a Hungarian colleague Maduna of graphs and he had been using it to basically create to prompt epileptic seizures because that was kind of that was the era of electric convulsive therapy and sort of seizure therapy like the idea of like a cold reboot to the nervous system. Then letting people power back into some form of like home static equilibrium basically like at least it's like when your computer glitch ing and you just turn it off and you turn. It back on things work again. So that's what he was using it for and it turned out not to pay out but then the psychedelic therapist adopted it and they used it as a screen, a precursor to LSD therapy. So they'd put somebody under coverage and respiration and see if they lost their shit basically, and if they really really lost their shit than they wouldn't get to go through for the LSD therapy was testing Abba reaction, right? Or could they trigger a TRAUMAS? And the thing that caught my eye was that several patients reported that they had more profound insights in breakthroughs on the cottage and they did on the subsequent LSD therapy and you're like, wait a second that's that's super interesting. So that's carbon dioxide and tweaking at high and low. About supersaturated oxygen that's fairly straightforward. The final one is nitrogen and this gets to your question of nitric oxide. So nitrogen itself is in a not wildly interesting, right but it's two of its derivatives nitric oxide, which is the neuro transmitter in our brains which crosses the blood brain barrier Benson at Harvard called the bliss molecule that's responsible for deregulating stress responses, inducing lots of pleasurable Niro Chemistry and an interior experience. He he he sometimes he called it the spirit molecule I know there's a movie about DMZ of the same name but Benson, was their first. Then there's also nitrous oxide what people would normally think of as laughing gas, right? Like like a like a whippet. Yeah. Both of those are metabolic derivatives of the nitrogen family and interestingly nitrous oxide also breaks down into nitric oxide once it's in the body does. So now we're into breath right now we're into breath as the bottom line is. Any. One of those five things, respiration sexuality embodiment substances, and music are all royal roads. They all lead to a destination just by themselves. The idea here that we're talking about broadly as the notion of stacking or compensatory practice, which is that if you layer these things on each other, you can get further faster more easily. right and and so so that's the jam. and. So basically, you can super saturate nitric oxide and neo forty something I'm sure you're aware of its a superbeet concentrated. Amazon is going to give you a similar effective I agr- in terms of the nitric oxide production. Yes and then obviously all the drugs right? Are there anything with with Sildenafil? Yeah. They're oh, dilatory effects AK the Boehner is actually coming from pumping nitric oxide. Interestingly, there's also been several studies showing that heighten nitric oxide is has antiviral antibacterial elements and can also be. Indicative a good protectant from covid. Yeah. So just interesting stuff and you know both health giving and AH, what's the right word not enervating? Gorging, as the extreme version but Yes Ryan mentally the visa dilatory on preventive and then also mood enhancing and supporting. Yeah and any pre workout that has like Argentine or citrulline in or something like that. It's not gonna be as effective as neo forty or sildenafil such as Viagra or Cialis but in a pinch that or beet root powder or beet juice are also pretty effective in terms of dilation. Exactly. So if we played with Cobb region as this gas hybrid. This notion of nitrogen. which would be nitrous oxide and oxygen in a seventy thirty blend. And what's interesting there? Is that the at Mit I think this is back in two thousand fifteen but they've been continuing the research sins did did some research on on nitrous oxide and found something incredibly unusual in fact lied on the paper said, there is literally no other molecule that interacts with the. System in this way, and they found that after breathing seventy eighty gas blend of nitrous oxide that subjects e Jeez went into for three to twelve minutes approximately, and then after that normalized but for three to twelve minutes went into double amplitude Delta wave while new electric activity and to put that in context in the same way that we could playfully say that like carbon dioxide and nitrogen are the sort of forgotten gases. Breath work you can say that like Delta waves are the sort of red headed stepchild. Neuro Electric Research right everybody everybody pays attention to is because that's where we are most of the time is what you and I are doing. As we talk to each other and everyone listening you know Alpha waves get a ton of love with the sort of meditation and loving kindness and flow states. Beta waves are of that hip nagy drift off to sleep slash super deep meditation. If you're disciplined enough, not not often fall asleep when you get that relaxed gamma waves of those kind of spiky high frequency bursts of gestalt. Understanding the kind of classic. Eureka moments and others a number of again super disciplined meditators can spend surprising amounts of time there. But delta is usually only found in deep and dream less sleep and most sleep researchers are really geeked on. Rem. Sleep right. So so delta, just kinda get swept under the rug, but once you start. And had I not experienced it directly I wouldn't have known to keep looking. You know I would never have come across it. But what actually Delta ends is in certain really esoteric meditative traditions like Zog Shan and certain other ones. People are actually spending time there, and there's also some of the early kind of men who stare at goats. Mind hacking brain hiking stuff that was taking place with the US special forces was also harnessing data for remote viewing and telekinesis another thing. Now, obviously, you know what came of those studies, the knows. But. There is that there there. And so if you go into not nitrogen. That's seventy thirty bland and you find yourself do preparatory breath wigs or not. Now, we can just kind of I'll give the breath what protocol and then can couple it to the sexual practice. Right. So if you really wanted to do this, you would obviously make it as fun and enjoyable as possible. Set up a space, ideally a bed or a padded floors. And no sharp objects in its comfortable. Set up some form of aesthetic foetal focal points dim lighting whether that's candles or or other forms of low low intensity, high quality light setup, some forms of. Almost. Sort of pythagorean geometric alter slash showman slash focal point whatever matters for you don't don't overbuilt it. I think most people's alters these days are usually just like grab bags of Shit they found on the beach or someone gave him in a festival. You don't need. You can literally like own candle thing. Right? It does what it needs to. And then Engage in the now, this is basically a free di- protocol. Just brought to dry land. And it was actually. I. Was I was doing some free dive training with cut crack who was the world champion trainer he trained. Each. David, Blaine and Tom Cruise and tiger woods and a bunch of other people too. But he was giving us these breath protocols and then just at the end of a session, he's like Oh. Yeah and then of course, if you do gas assisted, you know you can you can hold your breath for fifteen to seventeen minutes and I was like wait wait why gas assisted fucking breath work are you kidding me like that? Like that was a Lightbulb so You do the free dive. Prep, which is basically you Vega breathing so that idea of super slow exhales like second exhales toot second holds four second inhales and the intention there is at least that you're supposed to be slowing your heart rate down so. Less. Oxygen. Longer than urine hills. Yeah. And that's signaling to your your nervous system and you're sympathetic response like nothing to see here Jill out right. and. Then engage in fifty hyperventilation is like truly trying to blow out birthday candles. And that the intention of that is to radically lower your co two, which should extend the amount of time. You can hold your breath without having that zero to build up too far, and then give you that insistent urge debris. And then you can take if you really WANNA go depending on how you do this either do the seventy thirty nitrogen bland or if you don't have the capacity with a splitter. Medical oversight whatever again, huge caveat tours here everyone's on their own recognizance don't do stupid shit. But it would be you could inhale too long foles of pure oxygen. So you supersaturated your red blood cell. So now you've got Max red blood cells decrease co two, and basically the capacity to hold your breath for a lot longer than you normally could. And then down the middle of that, you shoot the torpedo of nitrous oxide and then hold that in. In your lungs for as long as you possibly can, and if you want to add A. Meditative. Contemporary. Give you know thought experiment whatever you can play the game of? Inhale that Nitra, that nitrogen As if it's your first breath on this earth like literally as an infant, the world at. Like fully taking it in like it is the stuff of life. Hold it for as long as you possibly fucking can. Until you literally think you're going to die. And exhale as if it's your last breath. On this. And in the meantime, crank mcmuffin jeans and have your special friend Jackie off. Well well, and so when you're talking about the Nitro Oxygen, you could theoretically use something like a like a metric nitrous oxide canister for something like that you know the old crack balloon nitric oxide canister take. I mean if you wanted to kind of do the the Amazon Cheat, yeah then. It would be like boost boost oxygen canisters although I've. Seen I've never been really persuaded. Yeah they sell for for for athletes who are exercising altitude, but you know it sounds to me like really really big picture. What we're looking at here is you're trying to increase oxygen. and you're trying to at the same time increase co two and increase nitric oxide all simultaneously. Yeah exactly and basically. So so that because nothing interesting happens before the forty five second mark and then the universe unfolds in front of you. From forty five seconds to two minutes plus. And so at that point you realized. Okay. So now we're in a supersaturated place I'm in amplitude Delta wave near electric activity and all I've done so far. Well, let's just if we're following the this descriptive. We. Have done. Preparatory breath. We've done gas blended static we've done. Aesthetic Room and space although you're not going to be in it you'll just GONNA be coming back to it. And Music and and music selection is essential like really. Without teens, you're just kind of wandering around in the cosmos with. These. Be like doing ketamine and just staring off into space silence. Much of it. It's the carrier wave to Europe any And and so then you're like, okay. So we have that stock done and you can optimize it and it's amazing. You can also do anything resembling proposed bodywork fascia release spinal mobility pelvic tilt. Those kind of normal good things. Like. Okay. So now, what can we do with the erotic stimulation? So this goes brings us back to Nicole privacy and all that all of that work and you're like, okay. So are ecstatic. Nervous. System Secretary maps one to one with our sexual arousal network. We understand that sexuality has created just you know a majority of human suffering and trauma forever. And it's both tragic in that sense but also potentially magic. So if we say, Hey, evolution is amoral doesn't give a fuck what we love or care about it just simply wants a robust gene pool. But we can reclaim our agency from that we can Larry Untie our puppet strings, and we can use that all that incentive all that encoding as actually rocket fuel, our accelerated transformation. Then, you're in a very different place right now you're into the realm of alchemy. And you're like, okay, knee. Now, how do I cultivate sexual arousal and time? It would those breath work launches. and. So basically, you create a fundamentally what amounts to a partner Yoga. And you can do it. Platonic. You can do it clothes on and you can do all of this stuff and it's awesome and if you simply want to basically roughly double the impact. Then, have a special friend who you can engage in the intimate practices with as well. and. There's a there's a few things that are especially helpful to play with I. Mean One is obviously genital stimulation clitoris headed penis right? That's just sensation that gets loop through our nervous systems as we're doing our breath holds another is vegas. Vegas town. and. The simplest ways to engage bagel tone is basically throat massage and traction gargling and gagging, as well as basically rectal stimulation via like from men like an a narrows prostate massage for a woman to plug anything along those lines, it engages the pelvic floor which engages the pelvic nerve. It also stimulates the value of at its root and for a man can depending on the implement can actually trigger prostatic stimulation for a woman. It can increase g-spot pressure as well like okay. So you have those things online and again doesn't need to be like mucky messy embarrassing just like. Engage in implement you can put your pants back on. But by the way, not to put you in a spot where you sound like you're shamelessly plugging but you think had told me, you're you're trying to put together almost like a like a little online store linked to be able to purchase some of the things that specifically would act on Bagel nerve tone or endorphin dopamine release in the in the sex toy department in this area have you put anything like that together well I mean and to be clear as we, we don't have a commercial interest in this at all this it was literally to good vibrations. In good vibration, just like the online search website. Yeah it's it's. It's a sex positive women's cooperative based in San Francisco, and they just happened to have you know good clean healthy. Access to positive tools. So you just figure everyone look around your kitchen look at your granite countertops, stainless steel stove and this and that, and you're like, how often do we take out microwave and look how many thousands of dollars we've spent on cooking and then you look in your Goodie Goodie drawer beside your bed and you look at the ratty ass plastic shit stuck in the bottom you know like how much do we spend on the tools we spend fucking So I would at a minimum recommend that folks consider investing. You know anywhere from five hundred to a couple of thousand dollars on high-quality premium beautiful tools for better psycho, sexual stimulation, and arousal. So that said, as you get close to orgasm and this is true for women, I think women's pain threshold goes up four times on on a normal orgasmic og with something onboard like nitrous oxide, it can go eight times higher. something. Not dissimilar happens from An. So there is a point where pain and pleasure can get hot wired close to arousal. Right. So you're like, okay. So there's this let's say plus or minus sixty second ninety second window where my brain cannot differentiate pain signal from pleasure signal. It's all coded his pleasure. So now you're like, okay. Very interesting. So you take something simple. Easy to make fun of it but also just whatever it just works, which is something like nipple clams because nipple clamps do a couple of things and you got. You're basically like oh now we're just playing like build a buzz Bingo. Right. There are a little bit painful like if you and I to be both wearing clamps right now we'd notice Well you notice, and of course, nipple stimulation boosts oxytocin. So you're like, okay neat and then it also especially when you take them off and all the blood rushes back excruciating and creates a flood of endorphins. So if you now have high Vega left town going on and you have done your breath work and you're doing your gas assist and you could you put on a banging fucking tune that absolutely drops into the Funky Est.. Ripping butter the tune right as you're Peking, and then your lover POPs nipple clamps engages in any form of sensation contact play basically, but the intensity can be increased. If you want, you can even reach behind your lover's neck, put your thumb and forefinger on the base, their pedal lobes at the base of their skull you and you can provide throat traction massage, and this is not joking, we do not anything that it's compromises airways. We say category don't fuck with it, but you can get basically the combinations of traction and vague on the stimulation with loving. Throat massage stimulation, and then positive vertical traction and massage the oxypan alone and you're like, Oh, my God this just super. This is literally what we call the Sexual Yoga and you're doing you're doing that leading up to orgasm. Yeah and you and you can time it. I mean if you happen to and it's it's a slightly slippery target because the. Fundamentally. Nitrogen and something like ketamine are both dissociate of anesthetics in higher doses or amount so durations. So there is a sweet spot where your sensations are amplified and you're still feeling all the feels. Versus where you are Zude and into very non ordinary. Imagine state, but you're not necessarily as tuned into your body. So physical orgasm can come or go right he doesn't necessarily have to all happen. But if it does happen at the same time, like if you just absolutely get cherries across the slot machine, you can end up and I didn't know this was possible until I experienced it but you can end up literally with orgasms backed up in the queue. That your nervous system hasn't yet had a chance to process. So it's normally have three or four convulsions or whatever your sort of your typical physiological response can be. You can have like six or seven, and they're just kind of waiting until you get through the ones ahead and you're like Oh my God I didn't even know my body can do that. So is you know there's novelty profundity intimacy to be had by sharing these experiences with a dedicated partner and using I mean back to Rick Dobelin and The PTSD Weck with Ma then using that supersaturated state, which usually comeback filled with information and inspiration. You're like Oh my God, I had no idea I've never thought of that. I hadn't seen this that way. I didn't understand that about myself for us or the world or you, and then staying with that and union that incredibly tender space together sort of almost like newborns just hope each other off and the mystery and the wonder of it all. And using this as a and again as as a diy, this is the alchemist cookbook as a method by which. We can defragment systems we can gain insight into our TRAUMAS. We can get inside into our relationship we get insight into our purpose and work in the world, and that we can use those experiences as again back to the flywheel right of Extras Catharsis Community of the inspiration healing the connection we can use this as the flywheel that moves us forward through life. And you know my Is. When you do that it it worked like if you let's say you set this practice up. And once a week, you know a nominal Sabbath practice, you plug your Wifi router. On you block out three hours to spend with a partner. and. You actually do this in a way that's intentional and and grounded in your life. It functions a little bit like an electromagnet. You know how? Like the idea wrapped coil and? Look copper wire wrapped in oil, spin it, and it creates magnetism. And and it can be an incredibly strong magnet and that's the polarity with your partner. Stop Spinning stopped doing that practice and the polarity dissipates and you're suddenly just going through life as roommates again, do the practice and spin it up and it gets stronger and stronger and stronger, and it's literally learning to make love your. Not Mysterious and it's not an not an emotion. And if I'm not feeling it right now, I shouldn't get mad at your tell stories or you know hold grievances or grudges is like we should go make more love and we know how And then whatever issues we have, we still have, but we now have juice. We now have energy to move through it, and it's a little bit like the rising tide lifts all boats half the time if you engage in the psycho sexual practice, if you do this sort of yoga becoming like your grievances just on there anymore and if all we've got is the blunt instrument of talking to each other or hiring fucking therapist. To to trade pity stories and see who gets the advantage like that's a dead end. Is Learning to literally work it out. Yeah now you would, of course, if you're listening in, you would want to take the time this. This is more than just setting aside let's say you're like me apparent with children and my wife, and I will often in the morning calendar making love that night. But then we'll also you know our monthly basis calendar more intensive retreat to say a hotel. With a good sweet. That's you know relatively soundproofed often quieter the hotel where we can engage in practices that are a little bit more like this, like like what we're describing and so a lot of this stuff does take intention takes planning obviously just a few things that Jamie and I have discussed thus far you know like. Nitrous oxide or breath work or nipple clamps or anything else like that. You have to plan ahead and and actually have all the stuff with you when you go and then there are other things that we we didn't really touch on too much Jamie. You know, for example, my wife and I will will occasionally use like a testosterone cream or a nitro-glycerine cream. On the penis or the clitoris, which we found really enhances orgasm before both me and her leave US international oxytocin compound with academy, which is great for sex. But of course, ketamine can give you a little bit of droopy deck. So a lot of times you go through a little bit of Sildenafil or these kind of nitric oxide precursors into the mix. For you as far as any type of gels, creams, topical Lotions, or even plant medicines or synthetics. Are there any that you think as part of this whole? He Donald Matrices for sex anything that you think are particularly big wins or that that you think people would benefit from quite a bit when US responsibly yeah I mean and so now we're we're out if that was the PG thirteen now we're into the kind of the NC seventeen, which is basically I would just say. Don't do anything that is against your miracle moral legal, ethical cultural, or religious guidelines or dictates right so hundred percent agency and full consent as well as. An understanding again that any one of these works by themselves. So if the full stack is a law, you're like Whoa, who who, who does that like What kind of person can like throws a that kind of a kitchen sink of this and the really the only thing you can look around like. Bachelor and Bachelorette parties in Vegas. You know and debauch eyes, wide shut Kinda blow out and you're like, Oh, I'm not that type of person. We're not that type of a couple. Thank you. But no. Thank you. So. There is a question of like bringing. White light bringing intention and dignity and mutual respect and all of these things to terrain that. For All intents and purposes been sort of abandoned to more extreme cadence and station seekers. But now that said I think you know Dan savage the the sex column that the Seattle Times or something. But you know he has that famous phrase of like you. If you want for for a romantic partner, you want someone who's the three gs like good giving and game you know and and ideally that's the stuff of of a lifelong relationship. And I think something else you could say as you want, you want a physician, a functional medical doctor on your team, who is three C.'s which is you know curious courageous and connected. And if you have that, if you have the ability to work with someone who is willing to write you prescriptions and an over an oversee you at your own recognizance, then you can explore things like carbon and nitrogen. You can get a prescription for Sodano. Is that Peninsula Sildenafil here for Solider Yeah for cialis Viagra you can get prescriptions for oxytocin and Kennedy if you're in a state where medical or recreational cannabis noise. Are Allowed then certainly, suddenly those. So at the basic basics, you could say nitric oxide supplementation. Ranging from the beats and the pumpkin seeds all the way to Biogra-, right that's that's a pre. You can also. If it works for you and works in your body in your mind. CANNABINOID. CANNABINOID system well-known Aphrodisiac or censorial enhancers I'm the ancient Greek. Out Imagine, just like Sativa, for example. Yeah, I don't think you'd WanNa be full bore couch lock heroin. You know you'd want to be engaged in invigorated. In a positive way. And then obviously, there's a difference between anything that you would inhale. or smoke. This is what you would injust the edibles. There's the whole liver kidney thing and you know in CB two receptors that kick in in edibles I'd say that kind of a higher level that's slightly more intensive body load and ride, but potentially meaningful for you. And then. Oxygen. Carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide as far as the gas assisted breath work and and that actually right there. cannabinoid plus plus the gases breath way plus the psycho sexual and music is more than enough more than enough. I was GONNA. Say you've you've given you've given me plenty to talk with my wife about for an excellent hotel getaway already. If and then once a month or once a quarter or once a year, you would like to go deeper and you WanNa actually because I mean here's the other thing is like once you figure this stuff out, you're like Oh fuck there's nothing else doing it's not worth drinking wine ending up with a lazy hangover. It's not worth smoking weed in a in a casual way. It's Bailey with you know tripping you're engaging psychedelics that that don't involve some period of time where you're you're putting. An altogether. So that you know a result, you can go two ways on this. You can either go straight decadent hedonist and you never pick yourself up on the floor. You've just hacked you're your own addictions you know or you become actually like white light girl Scout Boy Scout, and you you just super clean and all you do is body work and eat clean food and pure water and juices, and then you put them all together for these these state experiences exactly how active they are. So so then so yeah. So now let's add the next level on visionary or non ordinary states to engage in this space and and there's a huge huge caveat here. Especially for women but for everyone, which is trust is non-negotiable. Consent. Clear. Boundaries clear understandings because if the value of these things is that you are deliberately and ideally skillfully ungracefully looking to lose yourself. And what that means is the equivalent is someone is your partner isn't your fuck buddy they're literally like you're a rock climbing Blair, they're the person at the bottom of that cliff. With your rope and your life in their hands. and. There is a sacrosanct protocol that you never break. No matter what and that is that we are on this rope together until we untie and say off belay. So there's no wandering off in the middle of it. There's no. Breaking the container or your agreements as a couple like it's not on not on us for me to prescribe who gets to do this stuff but it is fair to say that the notion of Climber Belair is is a non negotiable. It's not like how long you're in relationship with the person is your own sovereign choices were all twenty-first-century grownups but that you are engaged in palpable agreements. Is Is. Essential. So that's yeah, oxytocin Ketamine Nasal spray can be Super Rad. If you have a physician that can connect you with that experience the same and then if you want you know md is you know it's got rebranded as ecstasy in the eighties when it became more of a club drug but really it was prior it was called Adam like it was. You know like literally you're in the garden or empathy it's actually less sexy name. So. Again certain system tends to tends to accompany. Olympic for many guys that has been. Prompted sexy, which is often guys going. Clubbing, Anabela in own and other places with Viagra plus MDA. contraindicated and rough on the cardiac system so like you know. Don't do those things or if you do those things know exactly what you're getting into. So, md. May can be a super sensual experience. You could even potentially offer that to a female partner. And then the male partner rides a slightly different. Cocktail. So that you can be more responsive. Sexually. And in Sasha's Shogun, who were the kind of you know ferry godfathers and Godmothers of. All things psychedelic basically tested pretty much all psychedelics that they developed in their laboratory with his lovers and to CB was their hands down all time favorite. Really. Yeah. Hands Down and to me to CB actually lives up to the hype the sort of urban legends of what MDA was supposed to be sexually resting. Okay. Yeah. That was the the book a pickle, right? Yeah. P colony collar to books I. Have I made it like a quarter of the way through the book and still have yet to finish it. I, keep starting. Doesn't stick. I, it's dense. It is what it but like those guys were basically psychedelic triggers like they were. That's who they were and what they did in that part of their story because they were sort of old and whitehead by the time, most people became really familiar with them. Sort of no one can wrap their head around what actually done for twenty to thirty years together. But they covered round and and then you can go into the sort of amax museum dosages, of Silla, Simon LSD and yeah I would say that's that's a decent I mean the obvious. hedonistic ones like coke and methamphetamine. When you read something and vice, you know about chem sex in the gay community or something like that. It's often things along those lines. I. Would just say there's there's a contra indicated and not on that program. As far as increasing insight healing connection, those are often like brain. DOPAMINERGIC just fucking main lines and obviously any of the opioids are decidedly a sexual and. Kate it for all the other health reasons as well but it's not like you're missing anything. Right? You mentioned music couple times whether are there any particular soundtracks that you really like or any spotify lists that you really like? Yes. Hundred percent basically, what we have is a playlist called WOM put like w. h. p. and it's it's on youtube if you just do Jamie wheel and want it's there but I think unless you have like youtube red which I don't know anybody on the planet that actually ever signed up for that thing. I think it gets fucked with commercials but those are all the songs and then some somebody in our community did actually transcribe it to a spotify playlist. We'll put that in the link but basically. Just heads up. There's there's You'll find because of that double amplitude Delta, wave thing and the coming unstuck in time I mean, let's just actually described phenomenology too because that's very much. We've been talking about tactics none of these tactics matter damn and none of them are worth the trouble, the effort, the complexity. If it weren't for where they deliver you. And where it appears to deliver you and again I mean I say this all provisionally this is all just thought experiment and metaphor, but it appears to deliver like it's like You know that vomit comet. That goes in big roller coaster loops through the sky and get like fifteen seconds of. Comment. And they pretend to be spaced, they pretend to be astronauts, right? It's basically the psychological equivalent of the vomit comet except what you're doing to your partner and you kind of take tens because it's you know it can be quite a disembodied experience. You WanNa be recumbent lying down safely sorted. You know all those kind of things is the more you load up. Your. Partners nervous system. And the higher the. COMBINE ECSTATIC ORGASMIC release with the breath hold with everything is the longer they spend in zero g basically floating through. Loosely call the information, layer. And it appears to be a state of hyper cognition, extreme pattern recognition and profound inspiration where you can think anything you want about anything you can think of. With a three hundred IQ. For, as long as you're there. And it is so gobsmack and this is William James founded the entire field of optimal psychology and comparative religion at Harvard via his experiences with nitrous oxide. Joseph Priestley was one of the earlier discovers of it. William Colt. The guy who came up with the Colt forty five actually raised the venture capital because his dad wouldn't fund him. He raised the venture capital throwing nineteenth century wild west, nitrous parties and Winston Churchill. Actually used it all the time to to gain his insights. Now, the challenge with that experience is that most most of those guys Churchill and and James, in particular stopped using it because they're like fuck man, I cannot remember what I see and Churchill actually used it because he got in a car accident in New York he forgot to look the other way crossing the street and got. Clipped by a taxi. And, ended up in the one hospital in New, York, that it was starting to use nitrous oxide as an anesthetic and he's like what the fuck is this. And but he said he said it's hot I have a hard time telling which is more painful. Basically the getting over my broken bones and eggs or having these profound insight slip through my fingers right and and allude me, and so the idea and I thought about that a luck well, is it a dead end right? Because you have to be super careful of these kind this neck of the woods right these. This is the left hand path. This is always been the forbidden fruit and there's a reason that it has ended badly for most people who go down this this road. But I, think that James. You know he quit because he couldn't. He couldn't always remember what he was seeing and he was concerned that he would sort of and the the ridicule or the ostrich vision of his colleagues and I think that there is there's several things I mean one is. An disembodied intellectual. So everything you share with your listeners everything you embody as a person right is extremely more attuned and embodied than those guys where they were heads on sticks right. So we have a lot more of our nervous system in our physiology integrated an able as as a as of vessel. To Hold, store and retrieve information better. The next is is James gave us what James didn't have himself, which is a language and vocabulary for non ordinary states and and the peak heights of human experience. So now we have vocabulary. And the final piece is something as simple as our fucking phones, which is you can lean over blissed out halfway way back from heaven and Mumble it into a voice recorder. And capture. This is taking a quill pen and into China right of course I've I've used them the mini time in that state absolutely. Exactly. Exactly. So we have a better we have better language and vocabulary will have higher embodiment and we have better capture mechanisms. Yeah and and and that allows you to literally bring back quicksilver. Yeah I like that phrase bring back quicksilver. We probably scratch the surface of everything that I want to talk about but but you lay out a lot of this in the book to write and recapture the rapture dude, it's running. So long I'm literally writing the final chapter right now and I'm writing about what is essentially a post modern update to global Christ Christ did consciousness open source religion that expresses all of this in a method poetic form because of at the intersection of terrorism Cronos like my sense is when we get lobbed outside of time in these states. There is the chance for us to sort of become like a death rebirth issue Tori practice it's and it's no longer metaphorical right? You're literally like ketamine nitrous oxide, all of these things that the delta of activity they all have this big. Tone. Coming out of the cranial nerves they all actually deal with A. Deep Brain. Stem reset. That's off the magic of what all these things do and you're like, wait a second. So now we have a biological. Address Ip address for what was always a metaphysical death rebirth experience. and. We can now connect the dots to end. From literally, like we our neo cortex connected to spinal collins connected to erogenous zones. You know we're daycare apes to we're twice born humans but coming anthro pose. To. Take stand right I. mean ideally like it's because it's no longer This. Kind of brings us back full circle to my critique of like West Coast psychedelic conscious culture. We were fixated on transcendence and fixated on avoiding doing the hard things and Fetish Izing some hockey stick redemption where we're all off the hook for digging fucking ditches and taking stands. And I THINK TO BE A. Homegrown human to be fully initiated as anthro pros is to actually gain like McKenna said like don't give into astonishment. Spend enough time in the numerous in those magical rounds so that you've scratched your edge, you've hunted your white whale. There's nothing remarkable about the insight. That we are just starlight up matter in fact, you take that table stakes and you're like holy fuck what's actually remarkable is this seven or eight or nine decades I'm here in this form with opposable thumbs and our prefrontal CORTEX. And work to do and that we actually come fully home like, Dorothy. In the wizard of Oz, like truly like I had to leave Kansas I, had to go chase the mirage of that. You know that big dude behind the curtain who wasn't all that to come back to Kansas and say, fuck? Yes. There is no place like And here I take my stand. Joyfully and courageously with my brothers and sisters. and. So that's the that's the true like recapture the rapture because we are at. The Ascot on you know we are for sure at the end of a chapter who knows whether it's the whole book but like we are needed at full strength and we can't be at full strength if we're limping and cramped and collapsed contracted around our trauma and we can if we're blasted off and Gog allied at the back of beyond either. You know and like blending those two things is is the bliss crucifixion. Shit. I mean I can light my nervous system up and I can experience neck snapping white light orgasm that melts my circuits. Yes, you can and. The burden and the blessing of that knowledge is. All the wounding of the World Yeah Yeah and can can I hold them both without flinching? Yeah. It'll be interesting for me to to read the book specially for me coming at things from a Christian perspective, which is always interesting when I'm when I'm reading your materials and coming at it from them from a different standpoint yet I always find it absolutely intriguing and for those of you listening in I know that you have your own thoughts and comments and feedback on a lot of this stuff. So A. Jamie it's coming out it launches in April and I'm literally unlike final crunch right now. Okay and exactly what it feels like August a recapture the rapture rethinking God, sex and death in a world has lost its mind comes out in April I'm GonNa be reading it hopefully sooner than that. If I get my hands on a review copy elite guys know and I will do a review of it, and then if you guys have your own questions and comments and feedback in the meantime to add because we covered a lot of stuff we haven't really talked about before on the show. Just go to ben greet fitness dot com slash recapture Ben Grateful Dennis Dot com slash recapture, and that's where we'll have shown US everything that Jamie and I talked about also linked to his book on Amazon if you WanNa pre-order it. I love doing. It would be enormously supportive for him. If you WANNA get on and priore the book and it's definitely going to be one that I'm reading cover to cover. Jamie Dude. Those those a lot. I think that gives me quite a bit to work with. Awesome well, dude I think aren't we like scheduled for you to come on homegrown humans on Friday on my ear you have you have a podcast yes or a or an online audio learning platform whatever you WANNA call I'll be on there. I think later on this week. Perfect. When you know I would love actually to talk about that with you. You know like your like your faith and how it all intersects with everything that you do. Absolutely space and optimization, absolutely I would love to discuss that. So there's your preview folks if you. If you hear me on Janey show, that's probably part will be discussing.

Selecting the right gas analyzer to optimize monitoring of NOx and other emissions

"Hello, everyone money's Leanne Nichols and I'm the editor in chief and Associate Publisher Hydrocarbon Processing magazine and I'd like to welcome you to another installment of hydrocarbon processing, podcast series the main column. Today we're looking at the article selecting the right gas analyzer to optimize monitoring of Knox and other emissions. This article was written by Michael Campus in Catherine Williams of Emerson automation solutions it can be accessed through the May issue of hydrocarbon processing within the process controls instrumentation in automation section. Selecting the right gas analyzer to optimize monitoring them, Knox and other emissions. Combustion processes of all types generate emissions of one kind or another for example, hydrogen carbon-based combustion processes produce water, and carbon dioxide respectively, some emissions such as sulfur dioxide produced by the combustion of SOFA. Related Fossil fuels are classified as pollutants in a regulated by environmental agencies. Pollutants can be minimized by careful combustion control or by minimizing precursors in the fuel such as choosing to burn low sulfur coal. Pollutants that cannot be reduced sufficiently to meet regulations must be captured or converted through an emissions control system before release entreated to remove their problematic components before reaching the atmosphere. Pollutants from combustion processes are regulated around the world by local environmental agencies in the US. The Environmental Protection Agency or EPA publishes and enforces regulations including forty CFR sixty of new source performance standards forty four, sixty, three national emission standards for hazardous areas. Forty. Four seventy five emissions monitoring policy manual forty, see afar ninety six, nitrogen oxide or Nox budget trading program. The European Commission were e c also has many air quality directives and standards including the industrial emissions directive cover integrated pollution prevention. And control to minimize or mitigate emissions in the atmosphere water and soil, as well as in waste from industrial and agricultural installations. These regulations become more stringent over time so producers must stay up to date. For instance, forty cf are sixty has expanded over the years and now incorporates minimum specifications for emissions, monitoring emission measurement methods, and performance specifications. While these general environmental concepts should be basic knowledge to anyone working with combustion processes in refineries and petrochemical plants more information is required to deal with specific commissions. Understanding. NOx. Emissions. One pollutant that often proves problematic is knox because it can be generated by any combustion process using any type of fuel since there are no specific precursors that can be avoided. Knox refers to a of two compounds, nitric oxide and nitrogen dioxide, which can be both become petrochemical pollutants in the atmosphere. Ultimately causing acid rain, the two compounds tend to form together but portion of the two is unimportant for the purposes of monitoring. The critical measurement is the overall total. Combustion controls such as low nox burners help minimize formation to some extent, but these may result in other undesirable side effects. Knocks can be reduced in the gas stream through chemical injection, but this requires accurate measurement. This article will consider two different approaches for continuous knocks measurement in combustion gas tree. Measuring knocks with Kim Luminescence, the first measurement method depends on a chemical effect called. Chemical Luminescence, as a result of a chemical reaction of the intermediates nitric oxide in ozone. Nitrogen Dioxide is produced in an excited energy form by emitting a photon in the excited state. The nitrogen dioxide returns it to its ground state. The light emission or Kim Luminescence can be detected in measured and based on the amount of light emitted. The number of nitric oxide molecules can be determined. None of the Knox molecules carried by combustion gas stream are expected to be in an excited state. So this condition must be induced in the sample being analyzed, which requires several sequential steps. These steps include the following details number one, all nitrogen dioxide in the sample must be converted to nitric oxide. The sample gas stream passes through a heated bed of carbon causing a reaction in turning more than ninety eight percent of nitrogen doc dioxide into nitric oxide and carbon monoxide. Nearly all Knox molecules are now nitric oxide overall total remains essentially the same. Number to a high voltage corona discharge in a low temperature co fired ceramic generator module in the analyzer creates ozone from ambient atmospheric oxygen. A pure oxygen supply is not necessary. Number three, the ozone nitric oxide are fed continuously into a chamber where they react creating nitrogen dioxide molecules approximately ten percent of these molecules emerged from the reaction in the excited state. Number Four The excited nitrogen dioxide molecules emit their Photon in the chamber and revert to the ground state. The spent reacted gases exit with the exhaust dream. In accused essence detection or CLD analyzer the chamber in which Nitric Oxide and ozone reacts is fitted with a photo diode that can be read emissions with wavelengths between five hundred nanometers in two, thousand, five, hundred nanometers. The kimmel luminescence in this chamber has its high-intensity around eleven hundred nanometers. Software analyzes the excited molecule count in extra relates to project Knox content percentages for the entire gas dream a seal. The analyzer typically requires a cold dry sample stream although some seal the analyzers can work with hot wet sample gas streams because water vapor can quench the Kim luminescence effect before it can be captured therefore causing an under reporting of the truth knocks level. Seal the analyzers have been available for many years and the technology has long been accepted as the standard reference method for Knox monitoring by the US EPA and other regulatory agencies including the European Standard Ian One, four, seven, nine to two, thousand seventeen. Over the years, the overall performance stability durability of commercial analysers have improved among the various knocks measurement technology alternatives seal the analyzers offer very wide users. ability knocks measurement ranges from zero parts per million or PPM to ten parts per million up to ten thousand PPM. They also have the lowest purchase costs in their operational costs are minimal since there are no consumables with only the converter material. Requiring, periodic replacement at intervals of one year to three years president models do not require a pure oxygen supply. Thus eliminating that expense some suppliers engineer the cld without an eternal vacuum pump effectively removing a source of vibration that could compromise equipment integrity and reliability or at maintenance requirement. Some emissions monitoring applications require measurement of other gas components in addition to Knox Molecules to expand the number of gases that continuous emissions monitoring system or Kim's can monitor the seal. The often needs to be packaged together with a second analyzer equipped with a non dispersive infrared or non dispersive ultraviolet spectrometer in pragmatic sensors. If the footprint in the sense of the extra analyze not concerns than a seal, the based system can still be a very economical choice. However, in other situations, another approach can be used to simplify the measurement of multiple components and to reduce the number of analyzers. Direct Absorption Spectroscopy for Knox and other pollutants. This second measurement method uses an entirely different approach. Direct absorption spectroscopy utilizes a given compounds capability to absorb specific. Of electromagnetic radiation. The absorption at a given wavelength is measured allowing an analyzer to detect and quantify the presence of various compounds of interest using this technology. A single analyze can monitor a range of pollutants in a gas stream. The telltale spectral fingerprints for many polluting flue gas components can be observed in the near Init- infrared sections of the electromagnetic spectrum. The ability to create radiation with wavelengths ranging from eight hundred nanometers to twelve thousand meters depends on mix of different types of lasers, each of which can be optimized combined to generate outputs within specific segments of that large range. One current technique is using tuneful in multiple individual cascading lasers to cover this wide wavelength band, which is not possible with a single laser. Multiple lasers working together permit measurements of a longer list of specified chemical components. QUANTUM CASCADE LASER technology offers fast high resolution spectroscopy to detect and identify a range of molecules in the mid infrared wavelength range coupled with tuna diode laser spectroscopy. To cover the near infrared ban, a single instrument can provide greater insight in monitoring both in Near and mid infrared range of spectroscopy light. Quantum cascade laser in tune will diode laser narrow line with allow scanning of individual peaks of identified components with them interference in without infiltration reference cells or chemo metric manipulations. No consumables are necessary ensuring a low life cycle costs. Quantum cascade lasers are fabricated to skin a desired wavelength spectrum using a laser chirp technique. To start the process. A quantum cascade laser is post with electrical energy in heats up as the temperature increases. The wavelength of the emitted light also increases. The duration of a chirp is about one microseconds and and in this time, it scans a spectrum of between one and three wave numbers. This act is performed with all the laser modules in sequence to cover the full range of critical frequencies to monitor each of the desired chemical components. Internal signal processing software takes the raw detector signal and converts it into a spectrum for which can calculate the concentration of each analyzing. Quantum cascade lasers can be chirp at a frequency of up to one hundred kilohertz gathering many thousands of Spectra in a few seconds advanced signal processing enables real time validation of measurements in reduces the need for calibrations. Multiple reflection cells enable absorption pass links of two meters five meters compared to two hundred millimeters for Conventional Indiana photography. This technology is capable of very high sensitivity allowing it in some situations to reach into parts per billion ranges or P. P. B. Ranges. This approach offers many advantages per Kim's in refineries and petrochemical plants. Knox's certainly a major area of concern but other pollutants may be added to the list including carbon, monoxide carbon dioxide, Ammonia Sofer dioxide, water vapor in oxygen. where it is necessary to monitor list of components in a gas stream, a particular analyze can make all the required measurements. Sophisticated models can monitor up to twelve gases so that fewer analyzers may be necessary. Naturally, not all analyzer models designed to handle all of these measurements as such capabilities are costly and few applications need that degree of flexibility more frequently three to five components might require monitoring. So a user can choose the model that can measure only the components of. To minimize in lines or cost and complexity. Cascade. Quantum cascade laser tuna -able diode laser based analyzers can take a variety of forms making them easy to install implant environments. Many are now robust enough to be mounted in the field without a traditional analyzer shelter. These fueled mounted housing minimize the distance between the analyzer in the duck sampling point reducing the lag time to capture measurement. Some housings are reading certified for hazardous areas eliminating the need for a purge shelter. Internal components are often highly modular allowing fuel replacements of major subsystems including the actual laser module thereby ensuring high availability. Some analyzers can take the sample directly from the stack and hot wet state to keep acid gases from condensing. These types of analyzers often need some internal adjustment of the reading when limitation value stated on a dry basis, but they have the advantage of not requiring gas conditioning to convert this stream too cold dry. This conditioning by necessity removes water solo components from the sample stream, which is drawback in certain applications. A hotbed shrinks also sins particulates into the analyzer, which can create deposits is not captured separately treating the sample stream beforehand to cool it and remove oyster creates a cold dry stream that is free of particular. It's providing pollute level readings as specified in regulations with adjustment required. Many tools are available to measure Knox and other pollutants from combustion processes in refineries. Petrochemical plants given the full range of options. Plant personnel can select an approach that is ideally suited for a given application.

Round the ramp with let China Robinson. So one of my favorite parts of the final four is when college was rascal the WNBA gets to come together, and that's happening this weekend because see bird is in Tampa welcomes food to around the you've been here before you're like a, you know, thank goodness you came by. No, you could have easily skipped are low podcast. You just. I know. Well, they're not doing anything. They're not doing anything. What are you doing during your time in Tampa? I'm actually here on ESPN. And if people got to see when you come play, South Carolina a month or two ago, Asia Walston, and I were on the smack. Yup. Well, so it's not called smack talk. This time. It's basically called championship talk with myself and Diana. I think it's not called smacktalk. I think we're also doing like Baylor versus Oregon. It's not just your team against the other. Okay. Different twist. But it's essentially me we'll have a couple of different guests on a different points. And I think the five he'll is hopefully just as if you're with the couch watching the game, I'm already laughing. This is get right to be crazy. Now, you view wash a lot of basketball with Diana. What is what is she going to be like just give us a little preview of what she's going to be like out there? It's like. They should just call it a group chat because we've basically all have a little group chat that whenever you cons playing. We're just all over, you know, chatting saying, you know, outlandish though. Doing on air. The real no filter or you know, what I should say. There is a filter the NFL. Yeah. It's probably going to be a little while. It's gonna make you chuckle. It's probably going to make you think a little bit. But in the day, I think you'll be like she has a good point. Yeah. Well, I'll say this. I was surprised watching you because you know, when you think about sue bird. I think about strategy and analytics a little like worked up you had an energy about you know, that that broadcast with Asia Wilson, I enjoy it thoroughly like I actually turned off the main broadcast. I got to tell the way guys I did not hear any of that. I was listening to sue bird Asia. We'll say, but I love that. It's a it's a really relaxed way to listen to people talk about the game. And we'd need that around us sport. Like, I was so happy the other day after you know, one of the regional finals to see Rebecca lead on sportscenter. Like that never happens is usually the women's game is over boom. You know, then we'll go to the next thing. So to have space where there can be a casual conversation just kind of. Sitting at the ball with your friends the way you do. I think that's so cool. So humid about Yukon because I have some of my Yukon, friends, right? Who they know I work for you for ESPN. They may have known. I was at the selection Monday, but they text me and say a tooth pain. I may they are like I rave in the team has expressed the fact that yeah, they were surprised Lopez to were you surprised in. What do you think that what does that do for the teams mentality this weekend? I actually wasn't surprised. I never been in a committee meeting. I've no idea what goes on. But I was even around basketball. You I test they do some things here. And there that. Don't always make sense. But then sometimes do and I think it kept uconn in that Albany region. So to be a new seed in Albany, not have to fly yada, yada. I think that's I I was like, okay. Cool. Now, if they had a two seed in the west, then they'll wait a minute. Yes. Got totally totally screwed but to be in Albany region. I thought it was good. I think this is a team that nobody really expected to be here. So there's also an element of getting that to see that probably motivated them in a way that the one seed wouldn't have could argue that they're not in his fall or unless they got that. Yeah. The chip on your shoulder. I mean that seems yeah. Seems to be a big factor. What do you see in this team is kind of when they played well because I mean to your point I wasn't really necessarily surprised they gotta too because I've seen them vulnerable more often this season than I can remember. But when when you watch this team, what are they going to need to do that maybe have done consistently to beat Notre Dame? Before I think the only real answer have they got a ball out and ended up just like no way around it. It's not one specific thing. It's not the audio to the free throw line or they're not to stop their transition. Or what have you Holly wants Pacific thing? I think they just listened. They only play six players and four of the six or probably gonna have to have great games. Yeah. The end of the day. And yet they need to slow things down for Notre Dame a team that scores like a crapton of point. They're going to have to do that. But I don't know if they got it just have big aims and the lights are on. We'll see what happens I've seen coach Auriemma a few times this season in new looks a little perplexing. Sometimes, you know, first of all whenever you start to the the the interview with the. Oh, yeah. Whatever he does that you're already like, okay. And he's not in a good mood. But then he let the the beer grow in bed. I'm like is this team like stressing there, right? Like he is in handling like this team. And he's been you know, he's talked about he's like look players these days or differ. Like, how's he doing with? All this number two seed stuff going on. I have to say one thing about this guy. He usually knows what he's doing. It's like you may not understand what's happening at step wants to step three. But all of a sudden, you fast set tenure like, oh, that's why didn't that. So nothing really catches him off Garner's by surprise. But I think he's potentially seeing that this is gonna be different from other years. Yeah. You know, what earned has been? I should say different from other years. There's kind of this framework that he's just been out with a plug great players into. And we would national championships is what happened. You know? Obviously the team is deep is they they usually are had some injuries here 'learn deal with those. So it's just not going like the way it usually. Yes. And I think he finally to get to the final four probably just opened his mind a little bit like all, right? It's not going to be out usually, and I need to be a little bit more creative to I'm going to join a spot last question about Yukon. But. And it possible for things to be the way they used to be like when you when you look at the parody, and we'll his basketball, which is a good thing, you know, Oregon's here for the first time Baylor hasn't been here for a while which says a lot, you know, the players have stars that are coming up. Like is it possible really to expect Connecticut to dominate like you guys once did? Goes waves, regardless ready. You can look at this. So called you said and not domination. I did I did. And it. It started somewhat. When when I was there was there winning three zero. Then there was like a low. Background in the my more Tina Charles error. And there was a lull. Yes. Do we took it back up? So you know, listen this team got to the phone for. So clearly there's there's no lull, obviously, it makes me see if they win. But regardless it's weights. And so I don't think it's that ridiculous. Obviously coach CD the whole staff, they know like we're talking about the framework know what it is. And if they can just get their rooting back to to where it was a couple years ago. I don't see why can't be another big run. I don't know. They're all getting all those those. Say they did just sign a big recruit though. Yeah. Can you forward? It was he told us earlier in the, you know, the podcast. He was like, listen, I, you know, in terms of his staff movement. He was like we had to get younger misleading. We're not, you know, we're not hip to lie. The stuff that's going on. Oh, wow. Yeah. That he always looked like Fred Flintstone a little bit. You know, how he used to do? He was trying to go. You know? There was a time. I don't think we would have ever seen do that. But hey, you know, things are are tainting. So the conversation around the draft if she is that there's not a Brioni Stewart, obviously there's nine Elena della. Donna, there's not those players are gonna come in right away and have a major impact on any WNBA team, which gets harder every year with just how competitive the league is how great it is. But are there any players that stand out to you? As you've watched that. You're just impressed by or excited to see this weekend. So I think my first thought is is or anything. She's just fun to watch the game. We'll translate. But you're right. It's not there's not this like clear cut will used to the most recent clear cut this kid's coming in. She be an all star. She's gonna maybe of MVP within the first couple of years. Yeah. Have a huge impact on the team. There's not that. So my favorite would be Jackie young. And obviously, we don't hope she's come out yet. Yes. To me a player that like let's say she's going to be an all star anything like that. It's not about that. But she could come on team and have impact right away. Whereas I think if you're a star player and not the jungle invest Arner team. But you like but go on. The go-to on your WNBA team. So do you know how bit in otherwise? So I have one pick that would that would probably be my choice because I'm trying to like I'm also Seattle also position where we're trying to repeat we need that kind of play for you hundred percent. You know what he watches? Bless in this podcast because I mean what what seems to happen. And this was a trend that sometimes upsets me, right? Like when medium people vote for war or were keeping alley escape. We tend to give seniors in advantage. Right. It's like, oh what's her last year? And that person can get something next year. Or another thing we do like, we'll look at the numbers. Like, I'm a numbers person Ryan. So when I'm voting for my all American team. I'm looking at what you're shooting percentages. Like what else do you do besides score? Like, I'm looking at all that stuff. And So Jerry Yang was on my first team all American. She's the only Notre Dame player that was on my first team all American. But when you look at the numbers in how she played in big games, and our fishing see her consistency in how she just was like steady. I mean, look at what she did the other night against Stanford. I was like they just gave the ball Twitter byles to clear out like it. It doesn't make sense unless you're really paying attention at you know, basketball, so well, but I I'm curious to know, what are the qualities that you see in her specifically in her game that you think. Well, let me help. I mean, if you wanted to look at from number seven point anybody who can get a triple double d up at that saying just something about your ability. Yeah, right. Yes. We have to get specific. It's just you can fill up a statute me. It actually is to do it numbers. The reason why Liker she's playing with some some really good players on some players that we're going to have the ball are going to shoot the ball. She surrounded by talent. And she knows how to fit into that. And that is a quality that not many people possess. It's it sounds simple. And it's not like I was saying when you're the go-to in the ball's in your hand all the time. It's it's okay. Not easy. But you're probably gonna play. Well, give it right? The play. Well, but the player that doesn't have a lot of plays run for that isn't the focal point of the offense for for player like that. And that to me is Jackie except one of the Balkan. Right. Yeah. For the most part, you know, she's maybe not the number one number two option. Yeah. She's still able to fit in and be very very productive. And. Helps her team win. That's that to me is where she could separate yourself bigtime. Apparently, very interesting. So last question about the draft. I'll move on I feel like size strength, athleticism matters, right? Like, even more. So now than it ever. Did is that is great of the separator is I feel like, obviously, if you're sue bird and your athletic, AM, smart, and you know, all that stuff. And you know, you got it all. Disobeys? But like seriously is that is big of a separator because you hear things like whether it's Sabrina UNESCO. When people not knowing if she is athlete enough, and that will translate like, isn't it really? I think the big separator. But you know, I mean, you can overcome it other qualities. Yeah. Right. So the are smart, you're you're able to kind of get around things by using your head set, a graph classes. I mean, honestly, but I've leaving my career like avatar because you're gonna lose a stuff. Yeah. But can you kind of get her either high that were find ways around it? So I think it's tough because the league is so athletic that if you keep up in that way, I mean, sometimes it doesn't matter. How smart you are? If you keep up to some extent, you're gonna really struggle because that is just where it's trending it. Just this seems like just the speed. And quickness is like I was looking at some of the post players in the college level, and unlike boy, you're going to have to come out of that pick and roll little faster leg bigger, you know, the foot work. Favorite thing about the WNBA is like it's literally blood in the water the minute or rookie gets in that league. They might you know, if if they're good and they got like something to their game. They might do some of that in that first one I'm onto we all know what you're going to do. Like, I don't know. Whether you want kalani Brown. Those little chicken the game Berea out. Yup. Pigging roll. Here. We go. Yes. We score. Do it again if we score keep doing it. And that's like like, I said blood in the water, we will find the w bay find your weakness and exploits the hell out of it. Yeah. And that's just how it is. Yeah. So it can be tough. Again. You can't keep up. It can be tough gray coaching Ray players. Okay. Last question. I'll let you pick. I'll let you pick which one you would want to give me a thoughts on. So we saw with soccer did recently. Yes. If there's partner privilege here, then you know. I don't know what that is. Like, you know, you don't have to speak on something. If your significant other is involved, but the whole Luna bar deal is interesting. You know, and I'm curious your thoughts on whether something like that could emerge for the WNBA. The next option is CBA. Are you encouraged about where things are moving are headed for which you know, your third option is. Yeah, you you hit all our Theresa Levy talk. We got some time. But. But yes, but the the last thing would be this WNBA president searched that is still ongoing. So what do you wanna go soon? But. Three. Okay. Okay. And they haven't. We're that the union will be included in the talks. But they're just not at that point. Yet would he's obviously interesting with the draft coming up. I know. Yeah. Do you know what you wanna see in that position though? I don't you know, it's like a hot sure part of the things like we should some totally different name stern toward that. Thing. You know, do you want somebody or business year? We're basketball basketball business. So I don't seventy two to share. Okay. Not cross that off the list. Number two yarn. Perched very good. We've just started the process with the lead like actually sitting across the table from them. So we have a year to do that. So a lot like you got time. So I think we all we also did about it. And then oh, yeah, lavar. So I mean, obviously, it's amazing for them to step up and do that I know men in her teammates are like beyond thankful so excited about it. It's always great to partner with a company that's helping push things forward as it pertains to us and without ever happen on the WBZ side. I do think this is an assumption. That meghan. I'd you talk about I do think there's like a factor that needs to be talked about. And it's US soccer is one and we're MBA or two separate Korea. The NBA does old part of us. And there are like a lot of like gray area blurry line. But for you a soccer to pay them in one thing and not the woman another that's like that is an equal pay. Correct. Ours is it are very different rela people like kind of like to compare them. It's harder for for the eight people to explain that's not the same like, we're owned business. We don't just because the NBA. It doesn't mean we get it. And that's another thing. I'm just going to address this while we're here. Yes. Like set it on the table about equal pay equal opportunity lease gentlemen. We are not saying we should get paid the same as the NBA. Thank you. So thank you. I mean, drives me. Yes. To hear it. It's ridiculous. It's not worth saying you can invest in us the same right? When he's can give us the same opportunities to have commercials and be marketed and things of that nature topic. But anyways, but so talk amazing if a company would look on the other side. Yeah. Sponsorship of right now that makes sense. They would be almost like USA basketball treating treating them in the women you guys differently. And they don't do that. Right. Which is different. And that that's not. That's the right. That's not their professor which. Yeah. The game. In terms of treating us soccer is just kind of getting their obviously now with the help of Luna bar, which is interesting. That'd be goes a little bar. Yeah. But that that I think sometimes because to us US soccer is like women's soccer is like the WNBA like for us because they're professional women's league is not as popular, you know. That's not what we know. As the pro. I mean, I I'm just saying it's a casual viewer. I watched all the time now the negative and for is. But you know, so I think that was the first thought for most people it was like, oh, okay. So we can do this. And I'm like, no, that's USA basketball. And this is a pro, you know, structure were it'd be I sell, but thank you for sending record straight on that too. Because people keep saying, oh, they want to get paid to say. Like, it's not the same. Yeah. Like get educated on it. Phone investment Sandpoint. That's where the inequality really. Yes. Which it starts? And that's what they're that's the point that they're missing thing. Queasy frustrating. But we set the record straight of around slam Ripley shit, you stopping by talking to you. I could do this. You know, we we can hang out and talk. All right. Thank you. Thank you for listening to around the rip checkout more podcasts from ESPN on the ESPN.

How To Optimize Your Sexual Performance -

"You can go outside and just getting ten or twenty minutes of Sun. Exposure can significantly increase your testosterone levels. Having sex can increase your testosterone levels. Getting enough sleep. Sleep is really important. That's where a lot of your hormones are made and those of us who have disrupted sleep are not making things like Testosterone and Growth Hormones Missionary Kiani founder of mine the school for Human Transplantation. You're listening to the minor league. podcast where we'll be bringing you. The greatest teachers and thought leaders on the planet is the world's most powerful ideas the personal growth of a mind body have won walked in the mind body. Today's topic is really interesting. I'm here with Dr Amy killing he has been featured in the mind body documentary with DNA films longevity. She has been on stage at A. What makes any so incredible in the world? Today is is that. She's really a leader in the field of sexual regenerative medicine. Now what this means. If you think about many men and women today after at the age of forty we often believe that sex is no longer going to be as pleasurable so many men over forty believe that they need supplements like Viagra just to be able to enjoy the sex that they had during your younger years women have similar beliefs but the proof is very different. The truth is with the the right solutions. You can be fifty or sixty and you can have the sex of a twenty something or seventy or actions were eighty really here is on a quest to basically disrupt the bad mitts on sex and aging and homework is helping people. Even eighties rediscovered the power of sex reignite relationships to bring joy into the alive and to keep them feeling younger and healthier as they age. So we're going to be looking at for massive mitts. That really will slow you down and disrupt your sex life if you believe these mitts. We're going to attempt to dismantle these nets and then you're GonNa Learn six strategies that you can be looking into to ensure that even in your later years sex is still one of the most incredible aspects of your life for by the way we are filming here in Park City Utah at does Sarah Clinic. This is an incredible facility. Dave asprey popularized this in his books. And this is where you guys actually actually do really advanced treatments reverse agents such as full-body stem cell makeovers flick. You're going to get here in a little while we're talking about to do after we shoot this episode. So first let's talk about the truth behind sex in later years so the truth is that sex actually can continue to be just as good or even better as you get older if you approach it in the right way. I feel like a lot of our sexual education that we get in fifth grade and we learned about sexually transmitted illnesses and how to avoid pregnancy. And that's kind out of it and then after that like no one ever talks about it anymore. I think if people learn actually about how to be sexually healthy and how take care of their sexual systems there actually actually is the possibility of having amazing sex well into your seventies eighties and beyond as we sat down before this interview. Amy Blew my mind because she explained for believes that we have in society not just American society but society all around the world that really caused a sex likes to diminish as we get older. Let's not with the first the big myth so I think were the first big misses that every guy over the age of thirty five or forty needs Viagra to have good erections. This is something that pharmaceutical for companies would love for you to believe but it's something that's not actually true. There are a lot of other things that men can do to actually repair generate the tissue of the penis that will allow them to have have great erections without Viagra. If they want that these side effects to using BIOGRA- there are some side effects for sure. Dizziness flushing. Headaches is a big one. There can be some other other problems with heart. Medications and things in general vigers pretty healthy but a lot of men don't like haven't take a pill thirty minutes or an hour before sex and having to plan it out psychological but you gotta impact of that exact tells you that something about you is no longer work. Actually and people can become psychologically reliant on it to get used to taking it and they don't even even need it they take it because they're like what if I don't take them this time it's not gonNA work. There's a whole thing goes wrong so I think if you can repair and regenerate and stay on top of it. It's actually a better way to go although I'm not opposed to buy those medications at all so that's the first big myth. Have you seen patients in their sixty seventies and eighties. Who have remarkable directions? Without out by Agra yes what is it that the differently. So what are you talking about some of those sort of six solutions that come up. Basically a whole body approach that we can muse to help people no matter what age have great sex. And we'll talk about that so we'll be coming up to that now. What is the second big women? Don't have any options men have biogra- but women don't have anything and I think that that is true on some levels. There's not a lot of pharmaceutical agents that are actually all that effective for women. But they're actually quite a few things now now outside of pharmaceuticals they can be affected. The help women also have great sex. I see outside of Pharmaceuticals almost seems. Like pharmaceutical industry has grilled into. What's that we need to pop a pill? They have great sex but what you about to suggest that they are complete the alternative ways that do not require pill at all yes the the third it is that a rebellious function is irreversible. That once you have it you have it. I think that a lot of men that have stuck with it forever. But this is something that we've been able to reverse now. And the and the fourth myth is that just in general you sex deteriorates with age that have becomes boring that it becomes something the thing that we do because we felt like we have to. But it's not actually enjoyable or fine and that things are GonNa get worse as we get older. Well if you look at this a lot of this has been marketed to us. Yes yes the first idea. Is that men. If you can't get it up something is wrong with you. You need to dish out money to big Pharma and get pill and these bills definitely have their advantages in in some ways but the psychological impact of taking that bill which says that you're broken and the pill also causes us to ignore actual oh solutions that can get our body functioning in its full capacity than the second myth is that woman believed that they have no options. which in fact they do you heard Mitt is that erectile dysfunction is permanent when in fact it can be reversed and the fourth myth is that sex gets worse and no longer as amazing as you get older reality? It can be the exact opposite as you get older. Sex can get better and better yes. So let's talk about the solutions. Okay so there are solutions that I think that if you know these solutions and you can actually make a big impact on sex so we start with number one the firstly as mind your mind so mind your mind is basically just be aware that your brain is actually your largest and most important sex organ that everything that happens down below starts up in your brain and so do you really want to be in the right mindset the biggest sex killer that I see out there is actually stress and sort of the abundance of stress that we have and our inability to deal with that in a way that makes able to have sex properly so stress is going to affect our hormones are sex hormones since went to decrease your ability to make things like testosterone which you need to be able corrections it's going to affect women's Jones's wealth testosterone estrogen things like that stress is also going to put you in this fight or flight state here this would a sympathetic state where where your blood vessels are diverting blood to your brain and your heart and the key organs but then diverting blood away from your sexual organs so if you're in that fight or flight state eight you're actually not physically capable most of the time of having sex because evolution standpoint if you're running from a tiger in your scare super stressed out you're also not having that same time so it's important to put yourself in the right mindset to deal with stress and emotional things and things in your mind to able to get to a place place where sex is actually really good. That's fascinating so disciplined woman as well and women but women especially need to get the right sort of head space in order to have satisfying sexual experience. Let's be that's one of the first things is myself. I've noticed that when I'm having a really stressful time sexist much harder as as a man. I'm forty three years old. I've noticed that they've been going through extreme stress. It's harder to get it up right and so I can imagine that women go through the same problem now. How you look look at this? One of the things to remember is to have practices in your life to make us more resilient to stress. This includes supplements I've found for example that five. HDP makes me most resilient in elevates nudes and of course caught. Everyone has to be doing. is meditation if you haven't yet looked at six days meditation. I can definitely get on that if you have mine valley all access checkout a program on the six face meditation and also listened to. Emily Fletcher's M word. The M what program is a thirty day program that will make you immune to stress by teaching you the right meditation practice all of this has been scientifically validated. Now you also mentioned testosterone in our program. There's an episode with Dr John Gray whom I know you had with a client. Our John Away. Something really interesting in this episode. He's addressing men. There's a lesson here for women as well he says. Do you know how men or become stress and I go. Don't tell me and he goes well. They need to sit in front of a television and watch sports and even maybe drink a beer and women overcome stressing different ways. They get together with other the woman and they have conversations and he said that there's a biochemical reaction happening in the brain of men when you give them space to get in the identity by themselves stops to watch their favorite show on Netflix or sports without treasuring them making them feel guilty for being away from their woman now he says when a man does justice it creates an increase testosterone. Which means that the very next day the men is able to be more resilient at work to do better on his job but guess what and here he addresses the woman? He says those men are now gonNa WanNa fuck you so much longer so he says give your men's face to just sit in front of the TV. What what thoughts thought isn't that amazing? Now another really worth by lesson here. This is for men and women comes from Brazil. Ska BBB resolve. Scott is the director of wellness at been nomad wellness facility into loom. So I recently saw her speak on sexual health and one of the things she said is that it is very common. Sometimes when you're over forty for a man to not be able to have a full erection she said women firstly. Don't make them feel guilty in men do not feel guilty. It's perfectly normal. Ambient election said that even if you have a semi erection if the woman can gently except that semi erect penis inside her the energy Offer the woman can cause the beans to become fully erect while the penis is inside her. So she said it's very important about the woman to not feel that Hermanas it's not turned on and it's normal for the man to not feel that anything is wrong but know that by coming together the energies of each other can cause a semi erect penis to become Foley Iraq inside those two ideas from John. Gray in Bieber's Oscar might add some value to your sex life. Let's go on to the second big tip. One is basically just be the healthy and this is something that we know is true. The sexual health relies very heavily on blood flow blood flow getting down to your sexual organs and as we get older especially. If we're less healthy the we have more inflammation. Those arteries that supply. The blood are going to be filled with plaque with operas. FLUOROSIS and Atherosclerosis is a big killer of blood flow. So basically you have narrowing arteries so you know things we all know about cutting out sugar getting your blood pressure down working on your cholesterol exercising. All of these things are really important to decrease inflammation inflammation on a whole body level but specifically so that we can optimize blood flow into the aires very want them into the Genitalia. I see what are some of the practices that you recommend that men and women look into some of the most common sense things are going to give you the most bang for your buck so exercising. Every day on most days is going to be really important. Meditation and having 'em Mindful Oh practice is actually really important for inflammation as well a diet. That's low in sugar and sort of low glycemic diet. There are lots of diets out there and certainly I won't argue about the best one but I will. We'll say that sugar is one of the worst things that you can do for your body for your blood vessels for all kinds of things. It causes a Lotta inflammation making sure that you're active avoiding obesity. Obesity did he can extra weight gain. He's GonNa Cause even more inflammation and who's going to cause even more increase actress closes in those blood vessels and smoking is awful for your blood vessels goals. I always talk to patients and I tell them. I think that if cigarette boxes had a picture of a penis on the front of them then people would understand what smoking actually does for you because it's horrible for sexual function okay. So here's options. Here's some options that you guys can look at I. I'm not a big fan of diets because the Diet industry typically it is an instrument where the average American has to be five dives across their lifetime you tend to many dives actually do not have much of a long term impact on weight loss while fit however. Berg is an exception to this not a diet. It's a way of retraining. The brain in terms of your approach to food as a result of the ninety days. You tend to lose a lot of weight so you guys are on my daddy check out while fit. It was so transformative on my health but I got a license to bring the full program onto a nine belly platform. Now if you have mine all access you'll see that we also have a program by the quit up weapon called seven days to giving up sugar. Try that program. It is much easier than you think to give up sugar. The pain is typically for a day or two in your body adapts to it if you can tolerate one or two days of discomfort you can give up sugar for good. I no longer take sugar coffee. I no longer take sugar with just about anything and the health results have been transformative so again remember. It's not necessarily a diet but no that contract the mark hyman on me. Eighty percent of your body's shape is what you eat. It is not contrary to popular belief exercise. You WanNA get some exercise in but you want to watch what you put in your body and just like big Pharma trained to believe we need pills to be sexually healthy. They food trains us to eat stuff. That is poisonous poisonous for our body. Folks you need to get off Coca Cola. You need to get off so much of the stuff that you see advertised on. TV and mass and the solutions are there and it's much easier than and you think to make a shift. The average person who joins mind body right now loses about ten kilograms in their first year just because of wild fit and the fact that we don't even offer sugar in our office anymore and newbies who come well-stocked on sugar especially from developing countries. Where Coca Cola is widely pushed in health? Consciousness hasn't risen yet they get upset for like a week and then they realize how much better they and their transform for life. So don't forget. These changes are doable. The A lot easier than you. I think we spoke about giving up. Should we spoke about exercise. What are your favorite practices? I do those things I also really liked to do. Yoga and that sort of a mindfulness in combination with exercise. And you're also getting the heat. So there's heat shock protein activation which can be really good for general longevity. We know putting your body and stressful situations whether it's heat or cold or fasting or some of these things are really good for kicking up your longevity gene. So I'd like to do all of those kinds of things make your body thinks that a needs some adverse. A Yoga is definitely. You should be having a yoga practice. Yes that's one of my favorite. Let's go to number three. So number. Three is increased. Nitric oxide so nitric. Oxide is the main chemical Michael Messenger that opens up your blood vessels and tells your body to sin blood into those blood vessels and as we get older. You're actually making less and less nitric oxide. So by the time you're forty years old you're making about half as much nitric oxide as your twenty year old friends with metric oxide coming perfect question so a lot of it's made inside the blood vessels so the actual cells that line. The blood vessels are called endothelial cells. And they make nitric oxide but as you get older you inflammation in those cells you get plaque building up in those cells and the cells become dysfunctional so they can't make nitric oxide so things like l.. arginine which are in a lot of supplements are supposed to boost nitric oxide. Those stop working very well after the age of forty so what you can do after age of forty or so is eat foods that are high in nitrates those are things like green leafy vegetables beets ruble okay. All those kind of things. Pomegranate dark chocolate even is high in nitrates the trick to this though there are two other processes that have to be intact to be able to make nitric oxide from those nitrate trait rich foods. So one of them is you have to have healthy bacteria in your mouth. That will do that. And when you are consuming a lot of mouthwash it's killing those bacteria. You actually are not able to make nitric oxide on that pathway. That's amazing so are you saying we should get rid of mouthwash. I'm saying that you should get rid of the antiseptic mouthwashes. The ones that are really killing bacteria or at least. Don't use them yeah. There are studies that show even a week of mouthwash. Use will raise your blood pressure and that's all nitric oxide independent because you can't make your own side. Are you making a statement right now. Dump Listerine Anti Listerine but I would say that daily daily antiseptic mouthwash. You use it a really bad smelling out but is that better. Gum is fine because it's not killing bacteria area. That's phenomenal okay. So let's talk about because as you guys know. I like to call out the bullshit of big American companies primarily American companies because they're so genius Ed Marketing and might not listen American companies. While right so I'm talking about my peers here. Let's let's just say if you study the annals of marketing this clean created one of the most perfect marketing campaigns in history several decades ago the marketing campaign essentially said. Do you have this disease that your friends sounds notice that you will never notice and it's bad breath and in the marketing campaign. They would basically show people whispering about you behind your back horrible horrible. You're now everyone was wondering. Do I have that Britain. My friends are afraid to tell me what solution is. Let's trim and even get this bet breath thing it's called they emphasized the name they labeled it positioned as a disease in reality. It's quite normal in so let's between became a thing another useless awful product that we spend money on that does absolutely nothing for us except what Prophet into the pockets of the company that manufactures and funds the whole advertising system. That gets us to buy more stuff that we don't need anyway. Stop using this tree. Stop worrying about your back breath if you're going on a date. Chewing gum is responding. Honestly if you're making out with someone they're going to accept you even if you have a little bit of light after taste in your mouth kissing awesome stress over it. Okay so the mouthwashes the first thing you need to nitric oxide. We got that the second thing is you actually need stomach acid and a lot of people. Millions of people across the world take medications is to decrease their stomach acid as things like protonics Zantac and over the counter medications as well as prescriptions that decrease stomach acid because they get heartburn but those medications vacations are actually decreasing here nitric oxide production and again. It's really hard to make ENTEROCOCCI if you're older in the other way. So avoid those medications them or at Lisa careful with them. Talk to your doctor first. Those are things that if you can get rid of them. It's much better for many things but especially for nitric oxide. Can we change things about behavior. A an eating to avoid those medications in the first place. Yes and no unfortunately our food supply depending on where you are. Regionally in the world is going to have different amounts of nitrate trait in there and they've actually taken samples of say spinach in one part of the US or the other part of the US and there are vastly different amounts of nitrates in the same spinach so a lot lot of it has to do with no soil conditions and things like that and actually even organic spinach Justin. How many more or less than non organic nitrates so obviously get the best quality food that you can but you still have to have things in your body to be able to break that foods down? So what are some of the foods. We should be focused on so the things like a ruge lot. Hail Spinach. Spinach beets are great for nitric. Oxide those are some of the big heavy hitters for this spes amazing amazing now other any supplements that would suggest yeah. There are several out there. My favorite which I know association with and then called Neo forty by Dr Nathan Brian. He's at nitric oxide researcher. And it's the laws that you take in. You just put it in your mount twice a day and you can actually measure your salivary nitric oxide levels during the day and see them go up and you'll see this is a direct correlation with your sexual help exactly awesome. Let's go onto the next item number four four optimization or getting your hormones at the levels you want them to be wanting that happens we older hormone levels like our testosterone estrogen progesterone around. They all start to decline. That's true for men and for women but we actually know that if you have more normal or at least high normal levels of those hormones you can have a lot of of health benefits down the road and you can do these through various sort of natural ways to boost your hormones or you can do it with foreman supplementation with other nearby identical hormones and things like that but from it for instance after the age of forty you know you're losing testosterone about one percent per year so it's just gonNA continue to go down and we also know that men's testosterone now is quite a bit lower than it was fifty years ago on a global level testosterone is going down. What's the cost for that? I think it's multifold but I think it's a combination of lifestyle. We have more men who are overweight and obese which has decreased testosterone or men who have diabetes is also going to decrease s Ostra on a lot of environmental toxins into crane disruptors at there are also influencing Lewinsky our body's ability to make testosterone. It's a matter of what's happening to us. And also the choices they were making every day and other any corrective action that men can take to increase testosterone. Yeah absolutely there are a lot of things getting workouts. In making sure you're lifting heavy weights and going to the gym frequently. It can help getting enough branched chain acids getting enough vitamin D. In fact you know you you can go outside and just getting like ten or twenty minutes Sun. Exposure can significantly increase your testosterone levels having sex increase your testosterone levels. Getting enough sleep is really important. I don't have that as one of my six solutions probably should but sleeping. That's where a lot of your hormones are made. Those of us who have disrupted sleep are not making things like testosterone and growth hormones on some of those things as well so sleeping is really important. Doesn't anything's exercising sleeping. Getting some sign was to get exercise and sleep so when it comes to sleep the the best program on sleep in the world is stop. The Michael Bruce Sleep optimization program here remind valley if you have mine value all access you can take a thirty day program adopted. Michael Bruce that will completely -pletely changed the way you sleep. This will not just boost. Toss strong but give you all the good chemicals you need to function incredibly in the world and of course as a direct correlation with your sex. It's like now when it comes to strength training you definitely want to look into super slow stripe printing. I'm a big Fan of the work of Dr Doug mcgonigal's because he really grits down exercising size and tells you what to do what not to do and superstar strength. Training is remarkable. You will find in one thousand nine hundred training on on this program called ten x check it out before for your next visit and then for women we see when women starting at about age thirty or so we see some changes in progesterone. It starts to go down to start to go down which is also important for women and certainly after menopause. Estrogen goes way down and can really affect sex. That can make more painful. It can affect sexual organs so just being aware of those hormones and getting those check with your doctor and then maybe either doing lifestyle changes or getting on medication can be really helpful. Amazing all right now. What is the fifth? The fifth one is utilizing. Light competes and sound. This is kind of a broad category. But they're actually a number of therapies out there that you would do most of them with physician that are very safe. That have kind of revolutionized is sexual health. There's shock therapy which uses sound waves so uses high intensity sound waves that he'd most often men but also useful and women but basically send sound waves into the peanuts which sort of begins his whole cascade of events that leads to improve blood flow new blood vessel formation stem cell recruitment better nitric oxide and essentially essentially after a series of treatments about sixty five to ninety percent of men will have significant improvements in erections. These are like thirty minute noninvasive in and out super safe us go in and you get sound therapy and super easy and it's great from an end. How would we find those facilities so if you look up? Low intensity shock wave. Therapy is actually called a low intensity. Extra corporeal shock therapy or shock therapy. It seemed that all over the world is actually pioneered in Europe. Ten or so years ago right how does function and now. We're starting are in use for women as well because to me is a little different but it's actually a fairly long process it see. What did you about six treatments each treatments about thirty minutes? And you do it over the like three MS visit. You go in for thirty minutes. You're gonNA treatment go home. You gotTA lunch. Go have sex for the gym. Would ever do that for three weeks. And then it's good for about a year so you'll continue to have aging but if you can stay on top of it and get these treatments occasionally then it'll significantly increased shockwaves doing so. It's just sending these sound waves almost like these high vibrational sound waves into the tissue and bet disruption actually send out a bunch of prepare signals. So it's not actually doing significant damage. But it's almost tricking your body into thinking it was the damage. And so you send out this growth factors repair signals. You bring in stem cells. You bring in new blood vessels new blood flow and you increase local nitric got. So what are some of the physical changes to the man or woman might notice of the street and so for man very commonly increased strength of erections bill last longer decreased refractory period in between erections improved sensitivity improved pleasure. Those are the things I see. Every single day and women again not studied quite as much better sensation John. More pleasure a better orgasm better blood flow to that area. There are a couple of other things that we can use as well we can use heat and lasers radiofrequency. These are all again treatments treatments. That you do a doctor's office but like for women. For instance there are laser vaginal radiofrequency treatments. Even take home. Red Light therapy battle devices based on the same. Fury's fury's Yes we're essentially we're basically causing some kind of harm. It's not real hard kind of injury and that injury tricks your body into thinking that you need to repair it an in an repairing it. You're actually creating newer healthier more youthful tissue. I see so if we were googling. This what would be a google search time we should put in vaginal regeneration or rejuvenation the nation. There's some great take home devices that you can actually get online that you get it and send it to your house and you just do it in your own house like the beef. It plus is a great one for that or or you can go to your doctors and you can get actual treatments where you're there for thirty minutes or so you have a preference between heat sound or light. I like to use them in combination but it really depends on the person what they're looking for for men it's mostly the sound is most of the shock. Wave Therapy for women. There are a number of other things that they never even heard of that. All right the sixth one is themselves in regenerative medicine so using regenerative medicine as a way to again to regenerate that tissue and heal ourselves and revitalize tissue okay. So let's talk about that because I'm about to be having that procedure tomorrow. Yes themselves of your body's master cells and every cell in your body. They're responsible for the upkeep of those organs and as you get older yourselves become less active and you also have less of them in all parts of your body so some of these himself procedures essentially we're using either growth factors actors or some cells themselves. Were taking them from somewhere either from you or from somewhere else injecting it into say your penis and that's telling your cells that are already. There are to become more active to increase blood flow to increase the health of the cells that are there to increase nerve regeneration. Essentially repairing that tissue using using your own body's abilities and what type of changes do people see so same kinds of things from Mannino improvements in erection strength staying power sensation pleasure and insane things for women's more pleasure easier orgasms lubrication tightness those kinds of things. So they break who was also treated by. Dr Amy Killen right here. The same center spoke about how his wife. What in the fifties had this sort of therapy on their sexual organs and the incredible impact it made on their sex life? Yeah Lana his wife. I treated her as well and afterwards the big bulletproof comics she got up on the stage in front of all of these people and told everyone about how now having these toe-curling Orgasm uh-huh mid fifties I think so that's incredible scientists amazing and there's so many incredible solutions you can look at if you you want to improve the quality of your sex life anything else to add the keys are that you actually do have power. You can do a lot to make yourself better without the help of anyone else else as long as you have education and if you WANNA go an extra step and get some help from your doctor we have a lot of resources for you. Amazing thank you guys teaming. Thank you I'm Bishen Kiani. And this is the Mine Valley podcasts.

Welcome to my center chart and now your host A. Giant Kumar along. LemMe ask you a question. How many dachshunds do you think you get exposed to on a daily basis? Take a wild guess. Give you a couple of seconds. Think about it. You come across dachshunds through your breathing through your food through the stuff that you use at your home at you workers and the many ways that you interact with your environment according to an article written by Dr John Coppola from the San Antonio neuropathy center. Modest estimates have suggested that we aren't explores to more than seven hundred, thousand different toxic chemicals on A. Daily basis and according to the global. Healing. Center it isn't abnormal to be exposed to over two point one, million dachshunds each and every day two point one million dachshunds research from the University of California shows how the average person is being exposed to cancer this levels of toxins like our cynic dioxins and delete these dachshunds aren't only made available to our body organs blood and. Sales when we eat and drink them but especially through our breathing, my name is Aj host of my seven Chuckers, any certified breath work instructor, and doing a lot of studying, experimenting, practicing, and sharing especially over the last couple of months when the pandemic began and I'm going to share with you some surefire ways that you can use to eliminate the sins through the power of. Your breathing so that you can boost your immunity but before I continue to question to please hit the subscribe button especially if you're on your iphone or hit the follow button if you're listening on spotify because this does something to the podcast garden that ensures that people who wouldn't normally come across this episode actually come across it. So please hit subscribe are hit the Follow Button Right now, and let's get started step number one always ensure you are breathing in Serie knows recently asked a few friends how they breathe and many of them tour me that the breathe in and out through their out and I don't really blame them because we don't have a breath work glass in school to teach us how to breathe correctly when you breathe in through your mouth, you're actually breathing in a lot of oxygen. And guess what oftentimes you don't need that much oxygen in fact, do much oxygen can. Be Detrimental to your health just like when you please a piece of iron out in the air, it gets arrested due to exposure your tissues and organs can suffer a similar diet of. Gaul oxidative damage due to oxygen or exposure. Mud breathing can lead to other issues such as Porsche, auto immune issues, chronic stress, and all of this can actually affect your entire outlook on life and your sense of confidence in your sense of happiness. Right the solution is to breathe in through your nose breathing in through your nose firstly ensures that you regulate the amount of. That you are taking. Because you see, you got filters in your news there ensure that these toxins endured to a great extent get filtered off, which is it full first line of defense. And because of the unique structure of your news, it actually warms up the air before it is taken up by your body, which does wonders for your ability to use the oxygen for energy production, and here's the icing on the cake when breathe through your nose. You create something or nasal nitric oxide, which increases are deal oxygenation and reduces blood pressure in the lungs. One study shored that nasal breathing increased tissue oxygenation by ten percent when compared to mouth breathing nasal nitric oxide acts as our bodies first line of defense against airborne. By sterilizing incoming air then as a nitric oxide travels into the lungs, it reduces blood pressure redistributes blood flow and increases gas exchange leading to greater arterial oxygenation, and what this means is that the oxygen that you breathing is effectively transmitted into your cells where energy is produced. So breathing in through your nose is really really beneficial. Do. When you're breathing, breathe all the way. Deal your belly. is you most people breathe shallow their chest? And this type of breathing is associated with chronic stress and anxiety. But when you breathe deep multiple things happen. Firstly, breathing deeply stimulates the lymph nodes and assists with lymph drainage or does that will lymphatic system is the sewage system of the body where debris dachshunds are collected and then eliminated from the body. But unlike heart and that is constantly pumping your blood, the lymphocytic system needs stimulation and guess what diaphragm attic breathing that you do. That increases the rate of elimination as much as fifteen times. Now, the other reason why you must breathe all the way down to your belly and die from is that when your diaphragm moves up and down in deep breathing, it stimulates the vagus nerve. The vagus nerve is the VAGA bond nerve its longest nerve that stocks, the brain stem and goes all the way down your toward your Chaz your stomach. So when this nervous activated your rest and digest phase of your nervous system gets activated allowing your body to focus on immune building and rest also. When you breathe deeply and consciously and all the way to your belly you are promoting blood circulation, which is another way by which your body detox is and eliminates west. Now the way that you know that your belly breathing is if you place, you're right bomb and the center of your chest and your left bomb or your belly, and in fact, you can do it right now. But not if you're driving but just do as I said, right bomb at the center of a chest left bomb will we Abedi and then breathe in deeply? Oh. In three knows. outremont. Now. If your belly inflates like a balloon along with the the rising off your chest and your sure does that means that you are belly breathing and sometimes this can take practice but don't worry if you visualize the air going all the way down to your belly, then it's going to help you become a more conscious. Bailey. Breeder. Now point number three to read our slowly and through your mouth especially when you're warning to rest, relax and detoxify your body remember to breathe out through out and imagined that you're breathing out through a straw. Now, this simple act does many things. Firstly when you breathe out slowly like this. And when you extend your explanation, it stimulates your vagus nerve which stems from the word Vaga Bond. This is the longest nerve in your body that is connected with many other organs such as your own, your lungs, your heart, your stomach, and you're in Stein, and when you stimulate this nerve, it sends a harmonizing signal all across your body to relax and detox another benefit breathing out slowly is that you're not letting go of all your carbon dioxide suddenly, and this allows for your carbon dioxide to build up inside your body as you gently. Let out the air which facilitates the release of oxygen from your blood haemoglobin. And into your system might Akon Raya, which is where all your energy at the cellular level is produced, and what this means is that by just breathing out slowly and extending your eggs, Ale and imagining that you're breathing out through a straw, you now have more energy available for the important and much needed act of cleaning and detoxifying your body, and finally as a bonus, try humming on the out breath according to a study guard assessment of nasal and sinus nitric oxide output using breath. Explanations they found humming causes a great and reproducible increase in nasal nitric oxide put in hilly subjects, and as we learned earlier, nasal nitric oxide helps stimulate your lymphatic system, improve blood circulation and increase energy production, all of which tribute towards the elimination and the removal of harmful dachshunds from your body. So what I'm sharing is actually really really useful especially if you find yourself. In this global pandemic where you are reading your mask but also you're taking these steps to really protect your body nourish your body knew how to relax you already de-stress. Moore. Also detoxify urine dia body. I could share a lot more information with you but I wanted to keep this simple and actionable. So in summary Breathe in through your nose, please do not in art. Breathe in and out through your mouth because that is really detrimental to your health breathing through your nose, breathe out through your mouth when you're ring breath work. But otherwise throughout the day, you can just breathe in and out through your nose and during breath work when you're breathing out imagined that you're blowing out through a straw. So you're gently leading out the air you're not letting out the air at one go so breathe all the way in. And Out Now and try to come on the way out. And, there are many month residue can use. But the mantra deny suggest today is the heart Chakra Mantra, which is Young Y. N. G. Young in fact, try doing this right now. into the. Letting go. Young and when you're breathing out visualize and imagine that the vibrations that you're creating are projected in your heart center. So into the nose. Young Remember, you're extending your exiles into the north. Young in once again. Out. In Again All right. You can keep doing this far.

#136: How to Improve Your Sexual Pleasure with Dr. Amy Killen

"View deserve pleasure like you deserve to get good about yourself and all the things that all the health benefits that come with leisure, just mental benefits. That this is the desert and I think that it's possible identity, a work and education, experimentation and things like that, but the tools are out there now, and and it's something that if you work at it, it's something that usually happens at least in some capacity, and you deserve it, so go for it. Here host of the brain podcast today's episode is all about sexual wellness and we have Dr Amy Killing here with us today to talk about a subject that honestly is very difficult for some people to talk about. We want to demystify because this podcast about today is it's about this idea that improving our sexual health and sexual wellness and pleasure is improving our overall wellness tooth, so it's not something that. That should be seen as disassociated from health. It's part of our help, and that's what amy helps us understand. The work material Mikan that she puts out there. It's a fascinating topic. We get into things that anybody can do at home to improve their overall sexual function and sexual performance, and we talk about the latest advancements and therapies that are out there. That doctors like amy are using to help. Help people with specific challenges that they're working to fascinating conversation. I hope you enjoyed welcome to the podcast where we dive deep into the topics of neuro plasticity at genetics, mindfulness, functional medicine and mindset I'm your host troop road and each week my team and I bring on a new guest. Who we think can help you improve your brain. Health feel better and most importantly live more this week's guest on. On the PODCAST is Dr Amy Killing Dr Amy.

She has something to offer there to. She's an author and frequent media guest. She's an outspoken about. For empowering patients to look and feel their best by merging lifestyle modification, hormone optimization personalize medicine and regenerative therapies Dr Killen welcome to the broken. Bring podcast. Decided to be here. You know I feel like this. Topic is one that we've had in mind for a while and something that our guest really care about too, and I heard you in another podcast. Say that it's kind of crazy. We live in this hyper sexualize world. If you're in the Western world especially in North America with ads on TV, and in the media, everything like that and yet the only real education that we get when it comes to sexual wellness and sexual intimacy is a little bit education in high school in this crash, course class, which is designed to kind of make you scared about getting pregnant, right? That's ball around it some education on contraceptives. And, then we kick kids out of the real world and say okay. Go figure it out and I. Think it's crazy and I think that the topic of sex and intimacy and really thinking of something as part of our wellness really takes education much in the same way that we really leaned into talking about. Mental Health and not making it a thing that people have to be worried about I. See your mission as being somebody who really wants to advocate for for people that sexual health doesn't have to be the thing that we're afraid to talk about so thank you for your work and thank you for being willing to dive into this podcast with us. Yeah, thank you I'm excited I think that. That at you're you're totally right? It's one of these things that people talk openly about cardiovascular health, brain, health and joint health, and like the health of almost every part of their body, but all of a sudden you mentioned sexual health. If you go like Oh like like people linked, don't want to talk about it, but I think it's really important so I just going to keep talking about. Let's start off with a little bit of the state of the Union in terms of really the problem that we're facing so both for men and women who have different you know relationships with Saxon and some of the dysfunctions that might be there the reasons preventing them from experiencing at the best level. We'll get into some of those details, but give us some of the big picture stats that you've read about and seen when it comes to how much of an issue this really is, so the about a for men about forty percent of men over the age of have some degree of erectile dysfunction. That number goes up by about ten percent. Her decades at fifty percent of fifty year old sixty percent of six year. Olds. You get the picture? And for women, it's actually shockingly similar about forty percent of women. Sort of just in general at some point in the last few years have complained of having sexual problems or sexual dysfunction, so it's almost half of women, and about half of men over certain age that are having dysfunction or concerns at least in that department so I think it's something that is you know it's under talked about because it's actually a really prevalent problem. How do you see for the patients that you work with which is both men and women that? There is some shame around what they're going through. Yeah, I mean almost all the time. There's some shame and it's very interesting. Yeah, I'll have. I'll have patients who come in a oftentimes looking alone like don't have their partner with them most of the time and some of them haven't even spoken to their partner about the problems that they're having, and that's both men and women. That's they've come in and say I'm having dysfunction, but I haven't talked to my partner about it and the same thing for women. Women, I'm having problems with arousal orgasm, or whatever and they haven't spoken to partner, so it's it's. It's something that people are keeping locked inside, and they don't really speak to their partners often or doctors or friends, because there's some kind of stigma on it Kinda like you, said Kinda like with mental health, one of these things where people kind of get in their head that they are supposed to be a certain way, and then if they're not there and I think that that's very similar to mental health. And zooming out and kind of looking at the world. Why do you think that W-? Why do you think that is? What are the factors that are going on that? People feel that they're the problem and everybody else. HAS IT figured out? Do you have any thoughts? Have you put on your philosopher hat for a second? Think of the contributing factors that lead to that. It's certainly the the all of the sort of openness in the media. The porn industry things like that are setting these very. Unrealistic expectations around sex HAL, how it should look how it should be that. Are you know they're just not real they're. They're total Hollywood I think that's contributing. I think that there is this this idea and it's it's been there for a long time for men that you should be performing your about male sexual performance like it's a performance earned and I think that even just the terminology is is contributing to the fact that you know men feel like they have to perform on the flipside. It's only been in the last decade or so that women have even talked about. You know if they're enjoying themselves and if it's working for them. So that's something that's relatively new in the past women. Were you know kind of told to just kind of sit back and let it happen, and you know hopefully doesn't hurt. But we're. We're starting to see some some new in the medical field as well as general people are starting to talk a little bit more about it as being like. This is something that your body is designed to do, and it's important for your relationship is important for your general health. Let's try to optimize sexual health and make you happier healthier person. Let's talk about some of the in addition not talking about it because we don't talk about it. Sometimes midst become pervasive in society. Mitts go unquestioned and when they go and questioned then that can lead to a lot of behaviors including not addressing it feeling shameful about it so I've heard you talk about an you've even written about some of the common myths that are there. That are related to. Sexual Health, so can you expand on some of those myths that you share about? there the Miss I think one like I said I think is that for instance for women? There is I think it's it's really a myth, or it's just kind of understood from from sort of watching other porn and things like that that women are supposed to be able to have orgasms just from having regular vaginal intercourse, like that's kind of what people think, and so I have all these women who come to my office, and they'll say I am not having an orgasm during sex. And I want to be able to do that. And why am I not doing it and I broken? Like can't do it. the turns out that only twenty five or maybe thirty percents, but probably less of women are actually able to have orgasms from just regular badger, no intercourse like most of the mead, clitoral stimulation to have an orgasm, and this is something that people don't even talk about and so women because they're getting their information from. Got An cosmopolitan magazine and porn like they're not actually learning. What's real and what's healthy and what's normal and so? That's something that they feel like. They're broken if they're not doing things certain way. When you look at the current state of the society in our diet in our lifestyles, how did those things are modern life impact, sexual health and pleasure that comes along with it. For the better for the worse Oh my this is such a big topic. Such a big topic. Like. We know for instance that the way that we're eating in our lifestyles. Affecting our health in general, it's affecting our cardiovascular health, so blood flow is not getting where it needs to go. You know we're. We're more weight. More diabetic were more. We have more cardiovascular disease than we ever used to. All of those things affect your ability to have blood flow in healthy sexual reactions. We also know that the way that we're eating in Diet. Diet and lifestyle affects her hormone levels, so we know men now. Testosterone levels are significantly lower than they were fifty years ago. In fact, there's so much lower that they had to the labs in order to compensate for that and make sure that we're still. The lab is showing the Middle Ninety five percent of the population they had to move. The reference ranges down. So that they're still that you know that people in general in the world are still in that ninety five percent sort of middle range, but men's the sauce from levels have gone way down, which is contributing to lower sperm count, and and love were retro this function and was like that at similarly, women's hormones also change well, so it's the things that we eat what we've put in our bodies. It's how it's basically everything around us changes everything from the way to blood close to the area to the way the hormones reacted the way that the nerves reacting like it's. It's really big picture. Yeah I've even heard. Some doctors and physicians say that in a good way it's almost like because so much of our cardiovascular health is around. That blood flowed that if you see as a man that you're experiencing erectile dysfunction, that could almost be an early sign that something is going on that. You want to check out deeper things because we often think of the sexual organs as Almost separate from the body right? It's like here's our body. Like Oregon that we have that was just designed to either fit your. Connected Yeah connected all these things are connected, and so they could be early signs that it's. It's not just if our sexual health or quote, unquote performance offer pleasure isn't there. It's also could be connected to something bigger. What do you want to tell our audience? When it comes to that topic, and how important sexual pleasure is to our wellness, some people don't maybe understand that. That Oh, Gosh, yes, so the first part of that question, absolutely the we talk about erectile dysfunction as being sort of the canary in the coalmine, basically early warning sign of potentially cardiovascular disease primarily which blood flow issues I'm thinking. This is true for women as well not quite as well studied, but the anatomy is actually very similar, but if you think about blood vessels. Blood vessel, and one of the main things that happened as you get older as you get atherosclerosis, which fills the blood vessel with plaque, in which is what's, GonNa eventually lead to a heart attack or a stroke will the blood vessels that lead to the penis, and the clitoris in all of the sexual organs are much smaller, the blood vessels that lead to like. Like the hardier brain, and so it makes sense the as you start to develop plaque in your blood vessels all over your whole body, those small blood vessels will be affected. I and they're gonNA. Close Up, you know or get close to close, and you have lack of blood flow to those areas so when we see things like I tell dysfunction or even. Female sexual dysfunction where you're not getting. I'm clitoral engorgement and arousal and things like that one of the things we think about is. Do they have cardiovascular disease, is it? Is it literally Disa-, blood, flow, issue, and often times. It is, and that's kind of where we wanNA start with that. So that was of the first part of your question, and it might not be that they have full blown cardiovascular disease. It could be that it's coming. You know ten twenty years down the line. This is why you have men and. And women that are in even their late twenties or early thirties that or or mid thirties that you don't have to be a fifty year, old person or seventy or eighty or ninety you can be young and still start to see some of these things, and it could be an indication that something might happen down. The road is what I'm hearing hearing, you say yeah, and the other thing that happens and I definitely want to get to the second part question as well, but it's kind of a whole different thing. That happens with age for both men and women I, think is really important with sexual health is that we start losing our ability to make nitric oxide and nitric oxide is one of my favorite things to talk about because people don't even know what it is, it's not related discussed a lot, but it's basically the main chemical messenger that opens up the blood vessels Bazo dilates the blood vessels who abusively lex the blood in so it's important for maintaining your blood pressure. It's important for getting blood to different areas of your body can be cut turned on turned off, but as you can imagine, it's also important for getting blood in the sexual organs. It's actually the main kind. Kind of a signal that tells blood to go to the sexual organs, and stay there for a period of time and starting at about age thirty, five forty, we stopped from being able to make as much nitric oxide, which is actually made in your blood vessels so that kind of goes down and down down down down as you get older one of the things that you can do, it's very important to do as you get older and older, I mean older than thirty five or forty is start eating foods that your body can make into nitric oxide, and those are things like green leafy, vegetables, beets, pomegranate, and and things like that these are nitrate rich foods. That can be broken down into nitric oxide in your body, because you lose the ability to make it from other other other sources were talk about a lot in my podcast. which I think is really cool, is that a lot of people use antiseptic mouthwash? On the writing on a regular basis, and that actually it prevents of the steps in your body, being able to make nitric oxide from food, so it kills the bacteria in your mouth that are required to turn nitrate rich food into nitric oxide in your body, and there's actually been studies with mouthwash that have shown people who use antiseptic mouthwash have higher blood pressure. They're poor cardiovascular status for sexual status like it's a whole. It's just crazy that something that we don't even think about can be affected. Not only are sexual health, but like our just general cardiovascular health, so don't use listerine or any of those clashes. So and and if somebody's really dealing with some like real bad breath, that is ongoing thing that's less to do with the mouth, and might be something related to the to the gut, not that it couldn't deal with the mouth. Some early Ginger Vitus or some other aspects set there, but it might also be related to the gut, which could be a good indication to clean up your gut health with with the integrative physician or functional medicine. Doctor Yeah, it's also tied it all. It's also interconnected as you say. But so did that's. That's leader. Things that we look at look at patients you know. What are the hormone levels with Testosterone Estrogen progesterone? And how those effect sexual? Interest Libido ability to have normal sexual function at, but then you look at other things like. Are they using mouthwash frequently? Are they doing other things that can increase nitric oxide like exercising, which is really important or using the? Red Light therapy or read therapy there. Some things like that that you can actually do to increase nitric oxide. And then house her cardiovascular status. Look at the whole body. Which is why I love sexual medicine so much his to me. It's like this. It's like this portal into being able to look at someone's general health and kind of pushed them in the right direction. A lot of patients will come to me with sort of sexual complaint, and as we sort of dive in and look at that sexual complaint. We learned that it's not actually a problem with the sexual organs. It's a problem with the body in general. And once we fixed that problem. Then you know they have better sex, but they're also just healthier, so it's kind of like a sneaky way to make people healthier which I love. Yeah and we could use that a lot more in our society along with the real talk so going back to the second part of that question that I was asking before. Yes, even the idea of like you know. Because sex has both been put on a pedestal in our society and things are hyper sexualize. And that can go everything from you know. the media that we watch and consume, both towards men, and towards women right I remember looking at some of my sisters magazines that they would read when they were like. And other stuff cosmo, and all the different ones that are out there there. You just read the cover and what their advertising and you can see how it's. We've hyper sexual it, but we haven't really educated people so on that topic of education, how important is sexual pleasure and sexual health for our overall health? What we get from it? So we get. We get so many things. It's basically important for all aspects of health. When I talk about health I look at. Six main components of so you have physical health and I will talk about some specific things with that, and there's there's ritual health emotional health mental health. There's a environmental health and their social health, so those are kind of the six main types of health or parts of health that are important in sexual health and sexual function, having a happy successful pleasurable sex life actually impacts all six areas of health and it's also impacted. Impacted by all six areas of how so it Kinda goes. Both ways so for instance for comment of health. We know that people who have active healthy sex lives unusually active is defined as something in the realm of maybe once a week, having sex or certainly a couple of times a month. It depends on the studies, but it's not like every day. It's just you know it's something that's generally a part of their lives Those people tend to have less cognitive decline as they get older. They done studies with with women and men, but basically looked at women who had were having sex versus women who had not been having regular active sex in the ones you were sexually active had better. Cognition had less cognitive decline as I got older, which is interesting. They've done look. It looked at the hippocampus. Basically people who are more sexually active attend have. Larger healthier people campuses, which tied to memory and things like that, so it's tied very much to cognitive. Sex's definitely of mental sort of emotional health in that we know that people who again has active healthy sex lives tend to have less anxiety. They tend to have they feel better about themselves have better. Sort of self. theirself. Were self esteem barrier they can tell. They'd have higher self. Missiles have less anxiety to sleep better, which of course we know, sleep has own whole other the benefits of sleeper. Talk for half a day about that, so it helps with sleep. It helps things Zaidi. It helps with self image. Other lots of other things like depression. People are who are generally having sex less suppression, so all of that's very important from physical standpoint, we know that people who are sexually active tend to have lower blood pressure They tend to against sleep. Utter, which is really important, they tend to have less cardiovascular disease There was one study in man again who looked over a year period of time. Men who were having sex at least once a week I believe. At the end of it, they showed that there was actually a fifty percent reduction in overall mortality in the men who were having regular sex versus the men who were not now other things probably tied to that. You can't just say it's just maybe they're just more active in general, or they have a better relationship with their partner etcetera so but these are pretty big things to to talk about and think about and besides sex is fun, but it also does all this really good stuff for us. You know on that on that. No I think that one thing that people often wonder about with this topic. Is that water? Some of the I know you said in when I reach out, he said listen. I'm not a sex therapist so like there's a lot of things that I can't or don't go into. But? From an anatomy standpoint, our men and women different, and what is it important for like the listeners to know about of just how sex isn't just about the organs in our body, but also how pleasure is received is there are things that you talk about with your female patients to help them understand? Here's the differences or the distinctions that are important to know that we wouldn't just get in traditional high school. Sex Education I mean a lot of stuff that you kind of learn as you go. Certainly as far as you know. The pleasure in receiving that that is very different for men and women at an in really from person to person I think especially for women it's. The way that people experience pleasure is very different because the nerves that are down the pelvis. They do different things in different women like the branching of the nerves to the clitoris. All around the pelvis is actually. In different women, and so there's not like a one. There's not one thing that I can say works for everyone, and that's something that as women we have to do a lot of experimentation, because there's not like one move or one touch or what you know, it really is very different from woman to woman, which is a little different than with men. Men are a little bit easier in that way. Things are generally wired the same way across both men, but women are not so I would just one thing is. Don't worry if if something that doesn't work for you if this if this thing works for you and not for your friend or not for anyone else, that's okay, because it just means that your nerves are wired differently. So it's something that takes some practice and experimentation with one of the things that I see with women, and this may be off topic a little bit, but I have several patients who come in who are who are women. Who Because of whatever? The way they were raised. Maybe they have some now. They had background or like that where they are. I think the sex is is bad, and this is true with both men and women, but especially with women I see this. They think sex is bad. They've been told that their whole lives and even their married. Maybe they have a couple of kids. You know all of these things they still kind of. Bad so I'm not a sex therapist, but I do talk to my patients about the fact that they really have to start to to kind of change the way they think about sex, because if you think it's bad each time you're doing it. Even subconsciously then obviously, you're not going to have a good experience. What one thing that's interesting with women especially is that there's there's interesting tie in between the mental component and the physical component. That's a little bit different than with men You really have really have to be in the right space mentally to be able to enjoy sex and have orgasms in such whereas men they they do as well, but it's not the same degree as women I. Tell I tell women, basically libido and sex drive her women's starts taking the morning. If the dishwasher is not unloaded in. There's like if the houses a mass Junk all over the floor. Like all of a sudden that steph stress alone can kind of turn off their their arousal interest in sex. They can laugh the whole day. It really does start early women, and it's a whole mental thing whereas with men. It's not quite the same. It's a little bit less. Bride for men. Women are trickier that way. Yeah and I think it's important to you know. To important themes that I want to highlight the first theme Is that communication so key because people's bodies are different men women. Any kind of gender that somebody is everybody experiences. Pleasure differently, and this goes back to the first topic that we started about should. Because Saks supposed to be something. That's pleasurable part of that pleasure. Especially we're experiencing with another person is communication around x and experimentation at being open, trying things being open to discovering and saying what's there and what you know, what doesn't work, and what works for everybody individually. You're not thinking that you have to be like somebody else and a second component around dumb around. Belief Systems and that often again generalizing here, but that typically you hear it a lot from our listeners that women tend to deal with more so than men. If we if we think that something is inherently bad, just like we think that it's bad to make money. We're GONNA feel bad about making it even if that means that we're employing people and doing great work or coming up with product that the world really needs in that they're happy to pay for that. Money's just a value exchange, so it's not inherently bad or good. We can use it for those things, so we think that sex is bad and we have a lot of belief systems towards that. It's going to be hard for our body to get behind us and want to perform even if it's something that we think we want to get better at doing. Yeah, absolutely your your. Your brain has completely buy into it before especially for women again I mean it's true for both, but it really has to. There has to be this in from your brain that this is like not only enjoyable, but it's healthy, and it's good for me, and it's good for my relationships, and it's good for like you have to. Convince the little inner parts of your brain that it's really good for you in really healthy I think sex is very interesting. It's very powerful thing. And I'm reminded of a again for women I think especially there's a lot of sort of taboo about talking about sex and enjoying sex and things like that. I was giving a talk in in Italy two years ago for A. An ended up on Youtube afterwards, which was great, it got a bunch of us, but there are like thousands of comments and probably half of the comments where people like directed at me, saying like just negative angry things like you're such a Ninfa Maniac. You're total proved. You don't know anything, or you know basically back. All like all kinds of things were completely unrelated. I was just thinking if I. Give a similar talk on like cardiovascular health or brain health, or whatever like you'd get some like heckling probably, but I think it's because it's a woman talking about sexual health. On a public forum. People are just like you can't do that like they're just strikes a chord in people and I think that's really telling about how we feel about sex. Especially women, you know talking about sex or enjoying sex or or that? We still have a long way to go in that regard. Yeah, it's almost like they're projecting upon you that I didn't see the video of the comments, but I can imagine because I've seen similar things that are there and follow you on instagram. It's the projection of you're a freak. You shouldn't be talking about this you. You know there's something wrong with you That's there and I think a lot of people can relate to that as we shared with you that our podcast is majority women. It's probably about seventy seventy five percent women that listen to it and I think that everybody has a story around wanting to explore their own sexuality, and being told that it was dirty that it was wrong that there was something bad or inherently unreligious or incorrect about them wanting to do it especially as a woman. Yeah, and it and it's really tricky and I think that it's also important. Just understanding the physical part of of sexual health is actually just health and maintaining sexual health and maintaining relations. If you think about it as being just one more aspect of being healthy I, think it becomes a little bit easier to for some for some reason for some of us to to be okay with it, so that's part of my message is is not like I love your enjoying yourself and that you're having pleasure. That's super important but also this is potentially making healthier that you're doing these things in your having me this relationship in the closeness, and even just the hormones that are released and things like that so. I tried to. Patients that it's not you know it's. It's a good thing to think about it. At least think about maintaining the health of these these tissues and organs, and as you get older. So part of the solutions and things that you talk about in terms of. Things that people can do is that there's some stuff that everybody can do at home. Right like you said it can be either starting or stopping, and then there's some more innovative and new therapies that are out there that you're highlighting said people know that they're an option. That's available to them, so we'll get to the new innovative therapies because I wanNA. Talk about that. That's there, but you've already shared some things that people can do at home that we that aren't directly related to your sexual organs, but actually have something to do with your overall health and your sexual health, so the first category within that was things that we can stop doing or be more mindful of the. So we talked about. We talked about diet, but I wanNA. Come back to that more specifically and talked about just even something as simple as mouthwash right I want to hit a few other categories. I know you've had commentary on and talk about that and how that relates to it, so one of the things that I want to talk about before we get back into diet is. Is Alcohol so let's talk about alcohol. You really you recently wrote a post about instagram. We know from the numbers on pandemic that alcohol sales are like abide thirty or forty percent in different states that are out there, and so I want to understand, and what impact does alcohol have when it comes to our sexual performance, and also you can donate as a bonus. Passionate about skin and you can add that into the mix to. Alcohol is it's personal I. enjoy alcohol have a little wine here and there, so I'm not bashing. People who drink at all, but alcohol is a toxin like it's one hundred percents a toxin in our body that we really want to keep at a general minimum. It's it's high in sugar. Which is one thing that I talk about you know with diet is really it's sugar is like the root of most evil when it comes to causing inflammation on our bodies, and certainly alcohol is generally high in sugar. So you've got increased inflammation, which is bad for sex. It's adverse skin. It's bad for everything. And alcohol has a depressive effect on your under logic systems you know makes you sleepy at such, but it also makes it harder in a lot of cases to to be able to to complete sort of sexual experiences to have orgasms, things like that a little bit of alcohol can be helpful because it can decrease inhibitions and make you a little bit more likely little bit. You out of your head, a little bit but after depending on the person after a couple of drinks, or maybe it's three or four or five. That turns around all of a sudden you you really become. It becomes very difficult to complete sexual acts because you had this depressive inhibitory effect from the alcohol, so it's one of those things that is certainly in the short term can be problematic for because you may not be able to have sex if you drink alcohol, but in the long term just the over yoga the deliver damage, the the extra sugaring Haitian of different organs, the extra inflammation of. Of all of that adds up over time, and that can be really problematic as well. Yeah, just like you were saying before the impact on the cardiovascular health and blood vessels in the flow, because the inflammation and the damage that occurs all those things. Add up over time. You've talked about sugar right? Just anything additionally you want to highlight. Is that something that you work with your patients on your look? If Sexual Health and pleasure something that you're? Dealing with the as a challenge, we really got to look at your sugar intake. Yes, sugar, and when I say. I don't just mean like table. Sugar I basically anything that gets turned into sugar directly in your body. So that's you know any of the simple carbohydrates. That's your bowl of rice. Your you know your bowl of cereal in the morning. My kids even I tell him not to. But, it's basically sweets plus any kind of simple carbohydrates. Because all we gets turned into sugar, which is again again you've got sugar leads to inflammation which you know, people talk a lot about information, but this is really bad for sexual performance in sexual organs because it does lead to more atherosclerosis, it leads to cells. In the sexual organs becoming a turning into into less active types of cells, which is kind of interesting it also elites hormonal changes in hormonal abnormalities, so for instance in men we know that men who tend to have higher sugar intakes, as well as men tend to be more overweight tend to have lower testosterone levels, which is directly tied to Libido strictly tied to read how this auction so you know it messes up your hormones in a way that is problematic and and overtime in lead to obesity, which also does all the same kinds of things just ramps up the inflammation, so it's just like this chicken and. Basically sugar is is it's really bad. It's a little bit a little bit here and there is okay, but it's one of those things you really have to look at it as something that is is not helping your body. I WANNA add in one of the component on the dietary side, and this is really around personalization I come from a South Asian background and. Genetically through a few. Genes that are there other stuff? Don't process saturated fats, and I can't break them down as well as let's say so my other peers that may not come from that background, and so an interesting thing, and this is all part of like being open and having honest discussions about this is that I noticed that when I in my current relationship early on that ad I after having been in a relationship for about A. A year and a half I had noticed that I was having some erectile dysfunction I thought thirty, six, thirty, five, like this is really weird like what's going on. And then it was right around the time period that I hadn't gotten some recent blood work done, and in that last year and a half I had gone towards a lot more saturated fat in my Diet mcat. Oil Beef other things like that grasser. All things that people talk about that could be really beautiful for them. And it was through there that I learned that I'm not breaking down saturated fats as well. I'm having a lot more of shop in my blood. That's there which again. That's I've done many episodes about how we don't need to worry about that. At the extreme that they're worried about in traditional medicine, but for me. Basically the doctors like. The, you may not be having as good blood flow, and that could lead to later challenges on and again here's how we want to tweak that, and in tweaking that and adjusting my fats, and the ones that I was taking it was almost like within a matter of a couple of weeks I noticed a complete difference and I didn't have that dysfunction anymore that I was dealing with. So that's just another thing to add and I was eating healthy diet. I don't have a lot of sugar. It just another thing to add into the mix of how people deal with things a little bit differently. Yeah, so two points on I love that story by the way thank you for sharing that. It yeah, I think that genetics is we're learning. Obviously, that's more. It's more and more important for now than than it used to be. Even in we can actually tell from do is different kind of testing. What kind of Diet maybe is better for you or worse than you for you in and how you make hormones in how you detoxify? There's lots of things that we can learn from genetic testing, so I definitely recommend if you can do it to think about doing somebody's functional genetic tests at to learn more about how you know how your body's typically works, because there's no one diet that works for everyone I think sugar in general is not good for most people. Outside of that, people always ask me like the Diet, and really is very variable on the flip side of what the problem you're having is. Actually do need you know good fats and cholesterol to be able to make your sex hormones and some people I'm like me. I have I have a genetic thing where I have very very very low cholesterol, and I just don't make very much, and it's one of those things that if I. IF I didn't eat at some fat here and there that I wouldn't actually be able to make testosterone estrogen progesterone, and and all of these important hormones, so working with someone who knows about this is really important and just keep in mind that whatever your friend is doing with his or her diet may not work for you and if it doesn't work for you, you know kind of keeping cataloging and. And changing things up can make a huge difference. You Know I. Have I have a lot of thirty five year? Old Men have Thomas Oxygen and they don't know why and you know you're you have to do? We start with looking at lifestyle making some little changes here and there adding in some exercise losing some weight adding in Brits chain, Amino Acids, or some vitamin, D. or zing selling things like that we can start with that and then move more towards more invasive things later on but but there's no reason that you can't at least understand what's going on. If you go through testing in such totally and maybe I'll do more of an episode. Expand on some of those. Tasks and things that I did so, but just for clarification audiences that I still have a lot of fats. My Diet is still include a lot of things I was just modifying maybe the level of saturated fat that I was having. To optimize a few things including blood flow that are there so? You also talked about so you talked about including certain foods, right nitrate and certain vegetables that would support that other any other things that we want to be thinking about including. are related to our overall health, but also might help us out with blood, flow and sexual pleasure. You mean in Diet or Diet as their food. Is there supplements you think about? In the category of things that people can do from home. That are available to them that. Would support them in this process I mean in general you know sort of heavy plant based Diet. Lots of vegetables are going to be very helpful. Making sure you're getting enough. Vitamin D is super helpful because you need vitamin D to make a lot of your sex, hormones whether that's from Sun or food or whatever the sources. Vitamin D we know is a lot of things, but also in for sexual health making sure getting enough protein. That's something else. That's really important for be able to to make the proteins to. To make hormones into the blood needs to go a lot of some especially women especially that are on very lower on low protein diets committee, vegans, Vegetarians, who will just not watching Tina's much, but that's something that can really affect everything from sex to skin the hair to all kinds of energy etc.. And then like I said like good fats. I think are really important Let's been made things I. think There are lots of there are lots of vitamins and supplements that can play a role, but at the very dependent on the person you can get micronutrient testing and check for those micronutrients like selenium, zinc, and things like that and see if you have enough I wouldn't tell everyone to go. Take those things because you may be just fine. Again all about personalization people dialing in and and using it as a good excuse in a way to get you excited about transforming your overall health, if you have challenges in the area, or in some cases, belief systems or past traumas that somebody might went through there that have a blockage. That's their not allowing them to experience pleasure again. You can work with an appropriate. Practitioner on on addressing those areas, but let's talk about some of the more innovative. Tools that you practice in. Apply at your. Signers that have come into. Existence really in the last. You know five maybe ten years that maybe not everybody knows about so. Is there one that you want to start offerings? Yes so I, do a lot of work with regenerative medicine. Regenerative medicine basically means trying to get your own body to you know to improve itself and kind of heal itself. We do a lot of work with like platelet, rich plasma and stem cells, ex zones and other biologics, which are all things that essentially we can inject into the Genitalia, which sounds awful, but it's not that bad. After using numbing cream and we can. Basically we're trying to censor kinda sin signals to the cells that you already have in that area to increase blood flow increased blood vessel formation may be may repair nerves a be. Changed I kind of changed the tissue in there to regenerate it. Make it a little bit more youthful and better functioning, so we can use these different therapies are simple like outpatient procedures that I do in both men and women. Were injecting. You know some or all of these components is regenerative opponents into. For Women the Vagina and Clitoris. Penis and over time over two or three months, or even more often time we'll see improvements in in sensation, blood flow in in arousal orgasm, and in women, actually a lot of times we'll see improvements in stress urinary incontinence, which is when you cough or sneeze up a little bit, and you can't jump on a trampoline because up a little bit like we could actually sometimes help with that just by doing. Doing some little biddy injections in those areas, so it's one my one of my favorite tools and then I usually pair that with some kind of energy device as well so for women I use like either vaginal laser vaginal radio frequency devices where we're heating up the tissue and to induce information in help support structures a little bit better get more blood flow in there, and for men I often use. Gains, waiver shockwave therapy which is at using high energy sound waves to again kind of do the same kind of repair and regeneration of those at tissues. So let's talk about the women I and we'll get to the men so in the case of. Stem cells or which talked about seven thousand and lasers next. What is the what contributed to the problem I'm putting problem in quotes here I'm just saying what contributed to the problem. What are some of the factors that are there and and you talked about it? Overall in terms of increasing blood flow that, but what specifically are stem cells? Doing that would help fix that problem, so it depends on. The person obviously depends on kind of what's causing the problem and I'm assuming these with these procedures. These are patients generally. We think everything else is generally working well exit. You've already worked on the hormones other components, and so it's really maybe more localized that they are not able to what just pick a classic case study? They're coming in and they're saying that they can't experience play hearings now. They're not able to orgasm since they had a baby. Or maybe they are not just not as sensitive after they've gone through menopause, and even though they're on hormones now they're still not having sensitivity, or maybe the vaginal tissues have kind of there's laxity. Stretch, they use to have in they're trying to. Build that up, or or maybe like I have a lot of postmenopausal women who have experienced vaginal atrophy. where the you know, the Vaginal Tissue Essentially thins, and so it sex becomes painful and you. You don't have the normal Costa that you had when you were younger so it could be very. You know any of these things or or any others that what we're trying to do. Basically is kind of. This sort of tongue in cheek way but kind of turn back time a little bit versa aging. It's almost like there's been some aging. That's happened this. Man Women Anybody. Aging that's happened in a in a localized manner could be from lifestyle, stress, combination, just living everyday living right, and now you're trying to address. Is that what I'm hearing? Yeah, exactly so the these therapies the way that they work and I will say to start off. These are still considered to be very investigation. Also, this is not something that that Certainly it's being done a lot of you know it's being done, but it's not. Not something that you're gonNA. Find everywhere because we're still kind of figuring out there very safe therapies, but they're still. They're still considered very investigational, but for instance stem cells away that we would use them in a woman whatever age is, we will generally do a either bone marrow aspiration, where we just take a little bone marrow from her own. Do a little liposuction, a little bit of fat from like the love him the area. Just an outpatient procedure isolate themselves themselves from not in then we inject those stem cells from the same patient into the clitoris into the anterior vaginal wall, which is right underneath the you re throwing the. is which is not a real thing, but it's GonNa. Wear Lettuce. And we inject into that area and then over time. What we what we see is you have sort of that a increase in the Collagen production in the vaginal wall. We can see increase in blood vessel formation. Going to the clitoris, we can see you know increase in support structures and less less national. You're kind of you kind of turning the timeline of the clock back a little bit, and and trying to repair some of the damage that has been done with aging in a way that's using the person's own body, because all we're doing is getting your body to kind of turn back on certain signals that haven't been working as well because you've gotten a little older so it's. It's really kind of interesting hack where you're we're. We're using tools that are that are really coming from the patient, a lot of times or most the time to help the patient to heal and become a little bit younger in certain areas and right now you mentioned that lot of these modalities. There's very few practitioners right that are that are practicing them, but the hope is by bringing awareness to it and showing options like all things it. I started on my gluten-free low sugar. Free Diet twenty years ago because I had really bad acne and every back then was like gluten gluten, even talking about, but then you talk about things you do them, and now there's so many companies are so many products. It's more accessible to two people, so that is the hope that becomes something that more individuals do and and you also do some training for some physicians that they want to learn how to incorporate this into their practice, so what we'll talk about that how they reach out to you, so let's so the the laser that you had mentioned right what? What would be the reason that you bring that into as a treatment option for somebody, there's ultimately different lasers out there and a lot of obgyn's at are using lasers and radio frequency devices. This is something that's a lot easier to find but there's there's Co two lasers, and there's other other types of lasers as well as radio frequency, but what they're all doing some capacity. Is there heating up the bachelor canal with either light or with radio frequency, and that heat basically signals your body. There's been some sort of damage and when you're, you're damage. Your body's like Oh! That damage, and so it's the same kind of idea as regenerative injections in that your your body is like. Oh, we'll. If there's been damage I should increase collagen production in this area should increase blood flow to this area got a heal the damage I should I should get the herbs to start working as we gotta. We gotta fix it, so it's basically a an injury that is created that. Could, usually it could be is usually very mild, but your body reacts by repairing area, so these are lasers usually are pretty fast simple. You know maybe ten minute procedures depending on the type of laser. We're using retreat. The whole vagina could you can go all the way you treat the whole entire thing and the depending on what type of device is being used some of them treat superficially only some but deeper. We're treating things like a vaginal dryness for instance are lack of lubrication badge, laxity, where you've had some looseness of the vaginal muscles and tissues, and you can help to make up a little tighter retreating a lack of sensation. Sometimes it can be helpful is can be really helpful as well for the stress urinary incontinence, so the same thing year. That got a little bit when you don't mean to is if you can build that tissue up, it's just underneath theory threat than I can make a big difference in in that in that response, it's not invasive. It's easy procedure in the doctor's office. Usually you do depending on the device, you may do two or three of them over a couple of months, but you know you basically walk in you. Walk out and there's downtime or restrictions for a lot of these, so it's something very simple as a tool that has been used more and more by by obgyn's, which I am not as well as other people who are in this field as a way to help repair some of those tissues inside. Let's pivot over to some of the tools that use for a man, especially in the category of like erectile dysfunction. You talked about some shock wave therapy. So can you explain that and what you're trying to what problem you're trying to solve? It sounds scary. Right shock therapy. But it's not. So, so there's a cup shock therapy so that the full name is low intensity, extra corporeal shockwave therapies. If you look in the papers. If you went to like, look this up. There's about ten years worth of data. Just intriguing using this shockwave therapy in the United States is a company gains wave which I've I'm affiliated with, and they have a sort of a protocol. They use for their shock therapy. It's all under the umbrella of shockwave therapy the way that it. It works as were basically sending high pressure sound waves into the penis and those sound waves again caused the sort of micro, which is not very much. It's very minimal, but the trauma then sets off this biological cascade where essentially sends out growth factors, and then you get increased blood vessel formation overtime. You get increased local nitric oxide which we've already talked about. No, that's really important for blood flow. You can get nerve regeneration. You can get even some breaking up of. Tension those blood vessels. And you do a series of treatments, usually, it's at least six treatments over the course of like maybe three weeks may take about thirty minutes each, and then, and then you wait a little while, and we see improvements in blood flow erections, rubinsohn symptoms dysfunction, probably about half of my men who do these treatments don't actually have D-. They're just in that kind of thirty five to forty five fifty year old range in. They're like what can I do? This may be preventative because if we if we know. It's helping with blood flow in nerves and things like that. We think potentially that it's going to help. Stave off Idi later on so I have a lot of patients who just do it for that rbis It's it's A. It's a pretty cool treatment. A forty plus studies have been done on at shouted, safe and effective than I. Think you'll see a lot more of this in the US in the next few years. Let's zoom out for a second and talk about Hero's journey. How did you end up in this place? That this was a specialty that you developed in helping. People experience more pleasure and really being an advocate for this topic. Yet it's kind of funny. I, I wasn't er doctor as emergency medicine trained. I worked in the emergency department and went through residency for emergency medicine. I was your doctor for about ten years towards the end of that there was a lot going on I had three kids within two years, and just tons of stress tons of bad diet decision like basically I was like at an imploding on myself. becoming you know more and more at six general and and I realized that I this. This was happening. I would seeing a lot of patients that were coming into the yard with these chronic medical problems, which we talk about all the time that we really couldn't address and I just sent them on their way day after day eventually transitioned into integrated medicine where I was starting to learn about treating the body at the root cause, and and this kind of doing what a hormone optimization et Cetera, and would you say that that came from the changes in your own health or different? Yeah it was, it was me getting to a point where I realized that I couldn't keep going through this high stress life with lack of sleep, bad foods, and no exercise and I was just not a I wasn't healthy and I was miserable person to be around I'm at the time so I realized I had to help myself and I also wanted to be able to help obvious patients that were that had come into the Er that I had sent home for ten years. Without any real tools because I didn't have them I didn't have time to teach them anyway, but they also have these chronic medical problems, which a lot of it was just stemming from stress, or it was stemming from poor lifestyle choices that I thought I could. Make a difference in my life in their life. If I learned some of these tools, so I basically just cut ties with the ER walked away one day, went into integrative medicine and was doing that for about a year and I started seeing that what was happening. A lot was heavy patients, men and women. They would come in with you know all of these problems, always chronic medical problems and we would start working on them. And get them. Where they had this foundation of health, they were feeling a little better. Their energies better. They're starting to lose weight depressions better like they're feeling better out of survival mode, but then they would come back and say thank you so much for helping me with that, and can you either help me now with my sex life or with my? My skin and I heard it like so many times. That was kind of like. They're like next level. Health questions and I started realizing I need to learn some things that I can do this sort of out of the box to help these people with their sex or their skin or both, and that's how I got into it. It's a very weird. It's a weird path, but I love it because I think it's so I think it's so important to talk about all of these things and I love how it impacts overall health, which is really the overall goal is to get someone to be healthier overall, so we can live longer better etc in this period of time where you were stressed style, and maybe making not the best. Best, lifestyle decisions and you just did what you knew. How at that time did you also notice a connection and again? You don't have to answer this of you. Don't want to cut it out. But did you notice a connection with your own? Libido when your health and your stress and other stuff that your own interest in insects and intimacy changed a little bit. Yeah, it's it's. Funny Story that like whenever I think about that period has one like moment that flashes in my head so my husband, who had been living out of town for a while because he was doing some work out there, he was home for a weekend, and I remember my my daughters who were at the fourth time they had the both come down with Lice, so I had these two like curly headed twin girls who have like heads full of lice, ed. We'd been battling it for weeks was disturbing, but we finally had this person. This lice whisper person. Who came in and essentially got rid of the life after a lot of money and a lot of hours, but she told us that going forward. We had to start doing lice checks on each other like all of us even though we didn't all have it. I had to check my husband hair. Check mine. We had all his life checks every day so so one day. Day We're sitting on like the playroom steps, and I was kind of sitting below him kind of with us. You know in between his legs. He's he's looking for lice eggs in my hair, like sectioning, my hair and looking for life eggs, and all of a sudden it struck me that this was the most intimate that we had been with each other in like months. and. It was while he was looking for life eggs in my hair. And, it was, it was very. It was kind of a comedic and also really depressing at the time, so so absolutely like that I think that that was a that was a moment that I for some reason stuck with me, and as I started getting healthier and looked back. We'll, of course you didn't. You weren't thinking about sex like you're literally in survival mode and I think that's where a lot of people are there in the survival mind weather it's with their jobs or their families or stress, or whatever it is where they're just dealing with like trying to stay afloat, and they can't even imagine thinking about like that next level of health. But I want to get people to where they can start thinking about it, and they can actually achieve that. That's great, and then you for being open for that because I think the thing is that when practitioners especially doctors come on this podcast and talk about their own struggles in a particular area, and how they're human beings, and they went through it. It gives people who are listening ASYA relief of like. Oh. It's not just me who went through something. It's even people that have the tools and have the information. They can go through the sometime soon. They can be as affected by the factors that are that are going on, so you talk about skin and. Obviously skin is something that people care about, and they want to have the best skin possible and our self-confidence, and our our our looks in our own sense of self image plays a lot into our our ability to experience pleasure right there. They're very connected in that way and. Skin is actually really interesting topic for me. Because I I mentioned before I was in high school, and grew up in like a very like standard, Indian like Indian American. You Know Vegetarian Diet, which meant that I was eating everything except for me, which meant a lot of chips allow soda, a lot of things like that and occasionally some Indian food that my parents would. Have Dinner, and that process of eating a lot of pasta, dairy and other stuff. I got I developed really bad acne in high school and I graduated about twenty years ago in the year two thousand and all through high school I had braces and really bad acne, and it was a terrible thing for me and I know just from having gone through that when people feel that their skin is off, it just affects them and how much it makes a difference in their life so talk about skin, and what is it that you want people to know about when it comes to the topic of skin, and what's poss when when it comes to improving it so interesting about this whole? Whole because I talked to people about I. Do skin and sex is what I say, and you will cower those even related, but it turns out the almost everything we discussed already like all the preventative staff, all of the lifestyle staff, even the lead of the therapies and things that we can do to help with sexual function. All of that applies to skin health as well so I mean. We can literally go back to everything we've talked about it. All applies to having healthier skin, so that's everything from avoiding sugar and eating healthy diets and getting good fats getting exercise getting, you know making sure your stresses controlled and low making sure you're sleeping. You know all of those core sort of. Health things apply to both sects and skin, so it's easy for me to talk about both with patients, because there's so much overlap, I mean it's weird, but there's so much overlap, and even a lot of the therapies and treatments that that we can use these regenerative integrative on things that are out there from the stem cells. PRP to the lasers to other energy devices, radiofrequency are also works on the skin, and so there's a lot of the same tools that can use for both, but like what you said is is I think very true I think that the way we feel about ourselves for better or worse affects our sex live. Avon. Our sex lives in the fact that we're having accident in having pleasure and orgasm that actually also affects our skin, and so there's actually quite a bit of a some interesting research out there. That basically shows again like you know with. You're having more sex in your sleeping more that your skin is healthy. It's brighter in it's more. It's more youthful in some of the same. At released of the OXYTOCIN. Serotonin and things like this that are released during estrogen released during sex could be really beneficial for skin, so they both help each other. If you can, you can get them. Both teed up the nelken feed each other in a positive way, skin and sex. I love that. Are there any of so I knew that when we were doing this podcast with you and I? Let the audience know that this is coming up. They said we got to ask about Bo talks because that's something that a lot of people, especially the wellness world. Know about. As. What are your thoughts on it is that okay? Is it not okay? Are there better solutions that are out there and should be worried about boat docks. I think I get this question a lot. Actually from people in this space, because people are obviously very worried about about X. introducing extra toxins in the body, unaided, clearly a toxin toxin, but but so far it's not been shown to be dangerous long-term. Bo talks is probably one of the things that that we do in aesthetic medicine. It's something not if it UPN, have a bad side effect. You can't have an I. that's drooping like this or you know like you could have some asymmetry or whatever, but only lasts a couple of months because the way that it works is actually the the toxin prevents one particular protein from working, but it. It only does that for a few months because that protein regenerates, and so it's you know you may have three or four or five months but eventually that protein regenerates and nerve is getting. They're sending out the signal and the muscle starts working, so it's your side. Effects are possible, but not not permanent. A very very very few people have had any long term problems of toxin. That's usually people who have some kind of fastidious disorder like they had strokes spastic muscles, and they're getting really really high doses of off as the only people that I of who've ever had a serious problems or or death from with super-safe as far as long term data. We've had it around. For more than twenty years so now, so it's something that we've had for a while. I can't say for sure that there's not some kind of build up over time. That could be problematic, but we haven't seen it yet. I think that as far as people I feel like. If you're comfortable with it, then go for it. I think it could be really helpful to help prevent. But I have a lot of patients patients who are not comfortable with it in. Don't WanNA. Do it and I think that there are some other things out there? They don't do the exact same thing, but they can help. Some of the general things, lasers, good skin care avoiding signed. All of this can help your skin. Stay healthier longer if you don't WanNa do Bo talks. It's kind of like you know. There's Viagra is reported to be very safe, but the challenge becomes if you're using it as just a band aid, and you're not addressing the root issues that are there. You may actually be masking some deeper stuff that are going on like your cardiovascular health. I did see a study come across recently like about a year ago year and half ago that there may be some concerns around people being able to experience emotions because our face, did you? Find. That there was a they were saying that a study that maybe people who are getting boat talks that their face is not moving in the same way, so their body doesn't experience of same emotions in internally. Any thoughts on that I think it's an interesting question I. Don't think there's any I. Don't think that's for sure it's been. That's been proven by any means I will say that it can go the other way that certain people like people who get a lot of stress headaches. And intention headaches that when you do, go talks, and you actually stop their ability to. wrinkle these muscles in kind of tighten up these. That they actually have improvements in their headaches, because they can't make the facial expressions that cause stress so I I can see where it could go both ways. I can see where it's possible. Not being able to make certain expressions could affect your mental health I. Haven't seen it I'm not convinced of it yet but I think it's interesting. Yeah, I think like a lot of things over time we'll. We'll figure it out and you know the thing is is that there's there's a lot that we can do that if somebody has issues, rip it. On a personal level. I probably wouldn't get. Bo Talks. You know just. I have my own generalized concerns. You know everybody's different. And but I like to hear from you. Experts were out there like look the data that we have so far is that it's safe, you know here's the considerations you know and there's plenty of things that we can do that. Are there that can support us? Having to tap into it if we don't feel comfortable with and I think that's true with any of the aesthetic stuff, right? I would never tell someone that you like I. Know that you need this or you need that treatment or like it's all it's all about how you feel about yourself. And I I more than anything want people to feel good about themselves feel confident, and you know if that means. Doing, nothing at all, and and just you know eating well and avoiding the Sun, get tastic like I'm super happy for you but some people. That's not enough they. They don't care about themselves. I have I have women especially who are professionals I've had teachers rather professionals, who as they get older, and this is horrible, and I'm not advocating it, but as I get. Get older. They feel like they're not taking seriously anymore. They don't feel like they are given the respect that they that they were given before It's because they think the because their face is showing signs of aging and I, hear this all the time that that they're not getting the respect in their job that they once did, and so for them you know. For writer for wrong. They feel better and they feel like they are perceived as being. A better contributing person at their job, if their faces a little bit more youthful, and so there's there's a lot of weird psychological stuff out there that I wish wasn't the case but but it is, and so if I can help someone feel better about themselves I will yeah, and along with that is I can be a part of the process of. And you see a lot of that, that's happening right now. Changing perceptions changing belief systems, which also means not having any judgment on people who decide to go down a particular pathway and the and the highest hope we've done some. PODCAST on. A breast implant illness and it's both a combination of Hey. Somebody can have or guide chooses. Let's say for Viagra whatever tool of anybody that wants to use to enhance some aspect of their life. They should have the right to be able to do it, and then we want to give them the most information possible so that they can make the decision on what's right or wrong for them right? I am very much about about letting people decide for themselves, and not being so rigid with any of this whether that's with. There's diet wars going on which. which we have people in the begins like there's all these different wars and everyone gets very entrenched unlike their own opinions about everything from politics, Diet Biogra- I. Think it's it's. It's hard to know what someone else was going through and lesser that person, and so you know we don't. We're not that person then. I think we can't make those choices for them. Focus on Your Business and That's it nothing else matters. And on that topic. Amy It's been fantastic to have you on. Have you break down some of these things? Especially in category I started off the podcast. That can be a little tough for people to talk about, and you just have a way demeanor about you. That is very hard, centered and leading with education and demystification so that people don't feel ashamed really about talking about these things I want to thank you for doing that. How can people follow you find out more and if they want to check out the clinic that that you're at? We'll I. Thank you for saying that. A second of all so I'm very active on instagram. Dr Amy be, Killin quite a bit of education on that a face, because well, but more instagram. I have several different websites, probably the easiest one to get to his doctor Amy Killin MD.. Amy I think it's just after eight PM. No, this DOT com and then out for for stem cell specific questions. I also have another website Kobdo Siri Medical, which is the O. C. E. R., E., E. MEDICAL DOT COM! You can reach me there, but I have a lot of people who just message me on instagram and. Route them to Robert the best resources. and you put a lot of really great videos and content out there, so if you're not following on Instagram, you know definitely, click on. The show notes below you'll be able to. To find her. If there's a loss masses, you WANNA leave people about in this topic of sexual health and pleasure, and just even the theme of experiencing pleasure in life in general Are there any final words that you want to leave people with especially with the person who feels like they have been maybe putting themselves last. They haven't actually gone into the topic of pleasure and. Figured out what really brings pleasure in life and I'm not just talking about sexual. Pleasure talking about all that's there. But what do you want to leave lasting message for that individual? WHO's listening? Yeah, I think the messages that you deserve pleasure like you deserve to feel good about yourself all the things that all the health benefits that come with leisure and just the mental benefits. That this thing you deserve and I think that it's possible. It does sometimes take a little work and education and experimentation and things like that, but the tools are out there now, and and it's something that if you work at it, it's something that usually happens at least in some capacity, and you deserve it, so go for it. Yeah, you deserve it and you can work at. You can work on it. Amy, thank you again for being on the broken ring podcast and being here with us and educating our listeners on this topic.

Get a Grip on Your Blood Pressure Zona Health : 601

"I've become a huge fan of coming called life cycles. You I k yell which is a global mushroom biotech company based in Byron bay, Australia. They've got a range of functional mushroom extracts that includes things like lion's mane, which could your brain Turkey tail, which helps with pre baddeck gut health ratio for winding down and maybe building immunity in quarter saps, which can improve sexual function and get you moving, and maybe even increase ATP levels, and all those extracts are carefully mixed with a rare native Australian, Kaku Plum, I became such a big fan because I started using their specific dual extract of lion's mane and the difference in my dream quality, and duration on my own ring was really noticeable. So it's something that worked better than anything else. I've tried for that. And one of the reasons that I think it might work is the senators they'd benefit of adding that wild, harvested cockatiel Plum extract to try the stuff out, go to life cycle dot com. That's l I f e. C Y K, yell dot com slash Dave. And you can save twenty percents off all products today for the first thousand people go there. That's life cycle dot com slash Dave. That's L. I. F. E C, K E, L dot com slash Dave. You've heard me talk a lot about might oh, Condra the powerhouses of your cells. They're important because they make the energy that fuels everything you do your metal conduit are under a lot of stress from a bunch of different things in the environment, but you can hack them. What are the best ways to do that is with a light there be device, ideally, something that can treat your entire body, something like Juve. That's J. O V. I love my full body Juve. And I wrote about how it helps me sleep in my new book game changers in the book, I talk about artificial blue light from screens keeps you up at night. Natural red and near infrared light does the opposite. It boosts melatonin production and helps to reset your circadian rhythm. And since I started using the Juve I've never slept better. Other reasons I like it are some manufacturers aren't as transparent with power measurements. But the new job design is FDA cleared an independently third-party tested for therapeutic light output. And they've got a modular design, which means you can build a full body system over time, and totally customize it to your space and treatment knees, I like the mobile sand, but you can do doormat. As well. Lastly, they're launching you hand-held device called the Juve go. That's great for travel. It's a bit larger than an iphone, but it delivers the same therapeutic power as full body systems, and is wireless and rechargeable. Go to Juve dot com slash Dave. And check out the jubes. That's J O V dot com slash Dave us that you are L, and the team is giving away a copy of my new book game changers for every bulletproof listener who purchases a device, happy driven. A stage of high performance. You're listening to prevail with Dave Asprey to these cool fact of the day is that as your blood pressure rises? So do all sorts of different risks. Some new blood pressure guidelines announced at the end of twenty seventeen just pushed half of US adults into the unhealthy range, basically one thirty over eighty is the new one forty over ninety. And if you don't know what that means you're gonna learn on today's show, what it means in terms of risk is that now there's one hundred three million people from seventy two million people under the old definition by blood pressure that need to make some changes in their diet and exercise look into devices or anything else, they can do to lower your risk of heart attack, and stroke. And all the other bad things that happen when your blood pressure's too high, and these new guidelines are the first major updates since two thousand three and they were just announced that the American heart association's annual scientific sessions, and the researchers said. Quote. It's very clear that lower is better in that came out of the Tulane University School public health, and I'm gonna put a little asterisk on that almost everything in your body. It's not true that lower is better just because cholesterol is bad. Well, if you have close to low, your risk of all sorts of seizes go up just because cortisol is the stress hormone if records too low you'll hate your life. Did you know that insulin that's too? Low increases your risk of death more than high insulin. It does. So what's going on, as you want your blood pressure? And every other hormone level and biomarker to be in the correct zone for living very long time and having tons of energy. So I'm gonna put a Astros there that says it's not clear that lower is better. It's clear that lower than where most people are is better. But if you have low blood pressure, don't lower it anymore because your brain kinda likes oxygen now in my master's degree, and foreshadowing that I've been working on here in the show, you probab-. Have guests that we'll be talking about blood pressure, but you probably haven't got so we're going to be talking about something that has nothing to do with what you eat, or how you exercise or even medication. So that has piqued your interest, what's left. You might ask yourself. Well, what's left is technology? They might be able to use that changes your blood pressure, and improves it, this is something that if you're a long-time listener, or you've been following the blog for many years, the early days, I talked about this technology and just haven't really talked about it much, since then it's called Zona plus and this is just a really cool tack, because instead of using drugs instead of going out, making lifestyle changes that you probably really should make anyway. Whether doing is they're using data and real time feedback in order to teach your body to control its own blood pressure in a way that's really profound effective very quickly with tons of science behind it. So the guest on the show today is Mark young the CEO of zone. Health and Mark is a actually his background is in clinical psychology, and his work with a variety of medical tech companies in an education for a long time. And he's really passionate and motivated about showing people. Here's what a small amount of training of your blood vessels can do for you. Mark, welcome to the show. I appreciate that. New. All right. Give me the lowdown given that you're working with his new technology. What exactly is hypertension? What's going on with it just for people listening going? Yeah, I'd never thought about my blood. My blood pressure too much. What, what's the deal with it? Yet will appreciate the intro that you gave because you talked about these ticks of the number of Americans that are suffering with high blood pressure. And we make the claim on our website that one out of three Americans and statistically, that's accurate. And that includes most countries in fact, it's not that America's Pacific. We have good data. Good data, like research. The, the, the reality is that one out of three people are dealing with it, and of the one out of three they say that one out of five people don't even know they have it. So a lot of people are, are oblivious, to the fact that even have high blood pressure problems. And as you alluded to the most recent update by the American Heart Association. Ask the average person what their ideal blood pressure is and they come back and say, one twenty over eighty. Right. That's been that's been the number. We all grew up, knowing was the perfect bloodpressure American Heart Association. Recently came out, and said, no actually, is better at one ten over seventy and one twenty over eighty which used to be the perfect score is now actually verging on pre hypertension. So people who thought they had perfect blood pressure and factor elevated by the current standards. And as you pointed out, now, we've got a lot more people who are in risk and didn't even know it. Can you talk about the two different numbers in the score? And just kind of give people grounding in what systolic diastolic are. I mean systolic is obviously, the top number of the blood pressure reading diastolic on the bottom number both. I don't know how much science you wanna go into on that. But so it with blood pressure to numbers, and one is when your heart beats how much pressure is there when you're actually pushing the other one is how much pressure is there when you're not pushing right? And. What's what, what's the problem with high blood pressure in general? Why should people care if it? So what are the risks? How does it work? Well, high blood pressure itself is obviously a problem in what happens. Is it puts a strain on the heart because imagine the case like give people the example of kink in a garden hose, you put a kink in a garden hose, and all of a sudden, the pressure builds up so much that it, it starts to force it like a backwash if you will, to high blood pressure causes all sorts of issues throughout the entire body, web MD would tell you that you're dying of everything if you looked up high blood pressure, but the idea that the, the heart needs to pump even harder and harder and harder weakens it leading to cardiovascular disease leading to strokes leading to at any number of medical indications. Simply just based on based on those numbers seeming to be off. Obviously some of the other things that have intrigued me about this, are that if you have high pressure clue the heart has to push harder. But you also then have increased chance of fluids leaking out. And this is something that happens when you get puffiness in your legs. You get inflammation throughout the body you so cold water weight can happen. And of course, things like an aneurysm where you have a weakening of a blood vessel. If you have more pressure in there, it's more likely to be a problem, the microbials in your kidneys, really are most at risk, high blood pressure, which a lot of people don't know. And so one in five people listening, at least the ones who haven't ever measured. This probably don't know they have it. And if you go to the doctor measure, it you probably don't know either, because a lot of people get high blood pressure from the white lab, coat syndrome, and just being in a doctor's office, which is usually not the place that you feel relaxed you mentioned kidney failure in there. And his blood pressure has been recently linked to the number one cause kidney. Failure. Yeah. So we don't think of that is being concerned, but it's like what pressures affecting so many different functions throughout the body that it's almost two extensive list. Now, I've put up a few videos over the years, sort of visceral. This idea that, oh, eat less salt to lawyer blood pressure. Do you have a perspective on sodium than blood pressure that you wanna talk about versus the wave? Just training your body to do what you wanted to do. I'll tell you that as you said before, too. Little is not always better. And with salt intake, certainly, too much salt does lead to increase water retention increased blood pressure, too. Little salt has adverse effects as well. And, and there's it's all things in moderation. You know that it's about getting the right level, and it drives me nuts because the unless you're one of the three to five percent, people who are salt sensitive. Hypertensive cz. The amounts that your blood pressure will go up from eating more. Sodium is within the error margin of a blood pressure cuff at the doctor's office. It's a very small effect. And so a lot of people have high blood pressure, not because they have too much sodium. But because they don't have enough, potassium or magnesium about ratios of these and people who have low sodium levels have a serious problem dealing with stress. In fact, if you lower your sodium, really even to the levels that are recommended today in the recommended dietary guidelines increases your heart attack risk, because low-sodium increases Renan and Renan, then increases your cardiac risk for dramatically. So same thing you gotta be in that in that right zone. And of course, your named Zona which is funny. But you just you have to you have to get it there. So for me, I was on a low sodium Arava thing for a long time. And you know what I feel a lot better on six to eight grams of Sony day and. That's because it helps my body manage the stress load in my life. He's my blood pressure where I wanted to be in, if I eat not enough salt. I actually get low blood pressure, which is annoying. And a lot of people though they eat extra salt. They get puffy but they take mcneese Eum or that you other things, and they don't get puffy. So it's really, it's a complex thing. But the idea that I'm not at risk, because eat alot sodium diet. The data does not support that correct? In fact, the head of the American society of hypertensive misquoted of it, you talking about the American, hypertension, society, Q one. This is going back, well, but he did a study of three thousand people looking at urinary sodium excretion instead of all the data that we look at comes from self reported salt intake, and can you tell me how many grams assault today not a clue? All right. Garbage data and they did all these things that are just not even with our recommendations. But at the end of the study with real data direct, quote from the lead study guy, he says, quote, if you wanna live longer, eat more salt. Okay. Now clue there's an upper limit, but we're in there. So I just want you. If you're listening to this, like, okay, this isn't a conversation about salt, and blood pressure. Because salt isn't going to be that big of a factor in your blood pressure, unless you're in that tiny three to five percent. So given that twenty percent of people don't know. They have high blood pressure and about thirty three percent or whatever percentage of it have it. This is a big deal. And if you look to your left and your right, you look at your mom your dad or your kids, whatever, you know, people all around you have this, and so this is a fundamental thing and traditionally, we use medications for this, right. So you go the doctor. And this, this medication has some weird side effects, and it's expensive cetera et cetera. What's the Zona approach will Zona? Coach and you bring up the medications in my personal passion behind being involved with Zona and, and getting the word out to the public to be honest with you is, it's a medication for living. And I think that speaks to most of your audience as well as the idea behind, there's a lot of solutions to a lot of life is life ailments and better living that are not not related to medication. Obviously, so Zona is a you mentioned, the isometrics, I believe earlier. And Zona is actually a it's a we call it an isometric exerciser. And what that means is, it's a medical device that uses isometric exercise to ultimately lower blood pressure. I think most people don't note. I exercise as you beat me to it sounds like a flavor of malt. It's good, right? The ISO metrics, literally meaning ice. Oh, meaning equal metric, meaning measurements means that isometric exercise is the exact opposite of what most people think of, when they think of aerobic, exercise so robot exercise lifting weights. Take heavy things pick them up put him back down. So I so metric, exercise is the idea that you're holding a muscle group and holding your body at a very static resistance level. So, like a plank a person doing a plank is holding all of the muscles associated with holding that position in an equal measurement. So the body is not lifting anything and putting it back down. It's not turning in circles, like a bicycle it's doing none of that. And what's happening with that ice? Oh, metrics is the difference between ero- bec- exercise versus anaerobic and what's happening with anaerobic, exercise is, it's triggering the Paris and pathetic nervous system, and that has multiple different outcomes for, which is, what does own helps with Zona pluses doing navy is, is actually working to help the body use its own healing properties to heal itself. Does own is not doing anything to someone? It's, it's, it's not doing anything other than helping you do. Exactly what your body's naturally programmed. To do. It's really cool, how it came about. There's got my attention years ago. When I first heard about this. I was so excited about it. And I've actually gave one to my dad, who has high blood pressure. And he uses it on a regular basis. It looks like a little joystick a Star Trek phaser. Yeah. Yeah. If that's even better like little phaser grocery store. Scanners. What we. Most likely descriptors for it. And the idea though, is that. Fighter pilots used to pass out when they do hygiene, maneuvers. And the reason they pass out is blood pressure, control issues, the blood drains out of their head when they're spinning their, their jet, and then it crashes I lost a great uncle to jet fighter pilot thing like that years before I was alive. But, you know, family, lower the point of it, though, is that we learned with pilots, how to not pass out. So one of the things that they do they wear a pressure suit, which actually compresses the bodies so that the blood won't go or sound supposed to go. But then they learned this cool hack that, if they squeeze the control stick, really, really hard that, that pressure was along to maintain their blood pressure. The way they wanted to. So there's own a plus use that knowledge in that original research where they know states. Some of these guys who had high blood pressure, don't anymore. What's up with that? And they realized oh, you can squeeze this. Little joystick like device. Not too hard not to soft just in that Goldilocks zone, just like you don't want your. Cortisol to IT low your blood pressure to, to you want your, your grips ring, not to be as hard, as you can squeeze because you can do that with the spring, you don't want to soft, and you do this for two minutes per hand twice a day, essentially eight minutes a day. What kind of results are you guys see a dozen clinical studies thing now, which is why I wanted to have you back on. But like what do people see from that I go back to your first point, I'll get back to that one, but you mentioned the story behind, how Zona even came about, and we get a lot of questions. Probably one of the biggest questions that we hear from people is why have never heard of this before, is this brand new is this real so on so forth. And, and it's fun that we can take the story all the way back to nineteen sixty nine which is when Dr Ronald Wiley, who is actually a well renowned actually cardiopulmonary physiologist, who was commissioned by the US air force to start this research. And the reason was they wanted to test, the effects of, of isometric exercise on g. Force blackout. When planes were doing it. Doctor wyle became intrigued and for decades, ended up continuing this research to find out in to your point. Dave you talk about that sweet spot that Goldilocks not too hot. Not too cold. Just right. And the reality is, that's exactly the beauty behind. Zona is that you, you can squeeze as hard as you want, but that's not going to get you the effect and you cannot squeeze it all, and obviously, that's not going to get to the effect. But as ONA speaking to your second point is that was only does is it actually hold your grip in exactly the same position. One of the stories we tell people as they think they can just hold something at a static rate, and it's going to be okay. But the problem is most people if you tell them to squeeze to their maximum pressure, if you cover up any kind of display that lets them know what pressure they're squeezing eventually, they completely let go because they get distracted. I will say that when I use my zone. Plus, if you try to watch Netflix or something when you're doing it doesn't work. You have to look at this time. Tension because we're talking really real time feedback and the things that have changed my life, the most aside from just not eating garbage is things like heart rate, variability training, where in real time. That's what the spacium harby look like a nervy back. That's what my brain waves are doing right now. And I mean I love my ordering and all, but waking up in the morning and saying, here's always slept over the last eight hours, that's valuable data, but it doesn't allow me to correct my sleep in real time, and what this is though is eight minutes of concentration or you're looking at a number and it goes up a little bit of it. And I also have little grip strength like the proper trainers that they use for the world grip champion stuff. And I know that my grammar. Yeah. And like my grip strength is of a digital one two, and it says that it's off the charts for an eighteen year old and I'm forty six so I know I have a strong grip, but it doesn't matter when use his own, it's not a strength issue. It's a control issue like how tightly can I can I vary? The window of it. And can I do it for two minutes? I find it to be challenging, but not muscle challenging. It's a discipline -veloping a skill. Yeah. Fascinating. It's kind of cool. And when you say they're widely spent literally two decades, almost perfecting the calibration, and what happens is that with using a device like this. It's not the maximum grip strength gives you the benefit. It's not the minimum grip strength gives you the benefit. It's that sweet spot right in the middle. And it's also it really it really depends on the rest periods. It depends on the precision of the pressure, and it depends on the intervals that you're doing it and all three of those factors play into how effective it's going to be widely spent decades trying to come up with the exact measurement. So for instance, you mentioned two minutes of therapy. Two minutes is perfect more than that doesn't have the effect because you need the rest in between the two minutes moved to the other hand, you're two minutes doing that. And to your point, you're talking about the pressure of the device. It must be held at the same pressure and you talk about biofeedback does Ona's beeping. And it's giving you a visual aid to tell you squeeze less. He's less squeeze more. He's more and it's Connor intuitive when using the device because seldom do you use something tells you to squeeze less because usually used somebody something telling you to do more do more? But to tell you to slow down or to grip less is counterintuitive, but it has to hold you in that exact exact range in order for you to get the benefit of the exercise, so as their correlation between controlling a blood pressure and having a good memory not kidding. Kill me. But yes, actually, there is actually one of the one of the things that is being studied right now is the connection between proper Brad Fleischer, and, and brain oxygenation, because many people have been diagnosed with you, not want to get into the claiming of medical things, but people who are who are showing signs of dementia, are, in fact, poorly oxygenated brain. Well, this is legit because this actually happened to family member. And it happens to huge numbers of older people who are diagnosed with Alzheimer's and senile, cognitive dementia. They have they have medication for high blood pressure. That push their blood pressure, too low. So there's no oxygen in their brain right? And Daniel Ayman's been on the show a couple times he looks at blood flow a hemodialysis. They call it in the brain, and even though I recovered my brain from all the toxic mold stuff that I had going on. It was actually chemically induced brain damage, I still have lower blood flow in the brain than average. But I have none of the damage remaining from that. So I do things to make sure my blood pressure is high enough because I don't have high blood pressure problems at all. And I do track it measure it. And it's, it's really fascinating that if we took all these people who are overmedicated, and don't have enough blood pressure and said, hey, let's get you off indication. Let's train you on how to control your own blood pressure. Do this by feedback for a while lit you learn how to do this. You won't need medication. But you'll have enough blood pressure that your body can regulate the way you're supposed to. And then it's like your brain just wakes up. Yeah. One of the things that the, you talk about the, the juxtaposition between using the medical device like Zona as opposed to using blood pressure medication. What pressure medication in no way helps your body regulate itself, but pressure medication is doing the regulation. It's itself. It's actually doing it. It's forcing the number lower, which means too much blood pressure, medication can actually put you into even Dayton even more dangerous territory than the blood pressure that you started the medication to treat using something like the applause. Your body's not naturally, going to push it self too low and was Ona's doing as its training your body to get it self to a standard, so that it knows how to regulate itself, we get people who ask, you know regularly. I it, what are the side effects is there is a side effect using it can be dangerous to use it. And the real only side effect that we have ever been able to determine which is in fact, not a side effect at all is people who are currently taking blood pressure medication. And then they decide to use the device to get a more natural solution to get away from pharmacology. They use the device. They don't adjust their blood pressure medication or the use it without their physicians knowledge and the problem is they end up because their body is used the word healing. They don't need the blood pressure medication anymore. But they're still taking it potentially at levels that are now dangerous so people using the device who are on medication. Should keep that regulated? They should make sure that they're that. They're taking their blood pressure. Regularly, and consulting physician because they will likely have to stop or reduce the amount of medication. They're taking now this isn't a infomercial kind of thing. But I'm sure people who are looking listening to this right now are saying what is this thing cost? We're talking few hundred bucks. I don't actually remember what the causes. Yeah. The cost of the devices five hundred ninety nine dollars. As vailable on our, our website, prescription required. No prescription required. It's available to the consumer, and we actually have a ninety day money back guarantee not to sound like an infomercial. But I say that because in all of our clinical studies the device actually was affected for over ninety percent of the people who used it. I have recommended this dozens and dozens and dozens of times to friends and people consulting with about their health people. Run into you know what if you've been battling this blood pressure problem, this is going to cost less than medication for a year for sure. And. That ninety percent number is in the studies that you showed me before the show, it, it's a real thing, does it fully solve is just help. With ninety percent of people, it depends on the person like anybody again, that the device is not solving a problem devices. Training your body to solve its own problem? An insult doing as I said ninety percent effectiveness of people getting that reduction that they need. Some people are completely medication freeze, and people go right back into normal ranges, but the device itself is going to definitely increase reduction statistic that you may find interesting Davis. The biggest thing for most people's houses diet exercise. Right. It's not a secret, most people feel like they're, you know, whatever's happening, and for, for a lot of conditions diet, and exercise fixes things giving you an example, doing aerobic, exercise, aerobic, exercise, which is, you know, your bicycling you're running you're doing something like that. It's the first line of defense that most doctors will give somebody to, you know, you've been diagnosed with high blood pressure feels like a death sentence. Cut salt out as you said, and, you know, start going to the gym more that will probably change your blood pressure. If you're doing it regularly by about five percent, oops, not enough five percent reduction. So, so if you're if you're at a one forty five percent reduction, you're, you're probably now somewhere around like a one thirty three one thirty two you're still in the danger zone. You pulled yourself down, but not clearly enough to make that big of a difference. That's not a lifestyle difference, doing anaerobic exercise, as we mentioned that the Zona if you just gripped something at maximum strength, or just did a squat went halfway down and held it planks so on so forth, probably two to three percent change in blood pressure reduction using the Zona because of the exact prescription again. Wylie's beautiful science dead. Exact. Description, actually, we find that most people using it in about can be as little as four but can be as high as eight so somewhere in that six weeks, weeks average, they notice an average of ten to fifteen percent reduction it's incredible. So that's more than died. An exercise about three times, more potentially two to three times the diner size what blood pressure medications do blood pressure? Medications can take it down further. The problem is, again, as you mentioned earlier, you're setting up all these questions here. The with dia next Cise. You can take down that five percent medication can take down even further the problem is now you're living on synthetic medication. That comes with it often the side effects worse than the blood pressure, it self, and that, that's what we deal with all the time is people who are on blood pressure medication. And can't stand being on it because it's, it's chronic cough. It's dry mouth. It's dizziness it's all of the other things that are coming along with the blood pressure, medication for, for some elderly people. So it's often just the fear of leaving the house without it. Do you have a price on your head from any big pharmaceutical companies for like a years worth of blood pressure medication? Or just the price had, like they're like these guys are selling device that could potentially disrupt the multibillion dollar market for drugs that people have to take for the rest of their lives and do the handgun under your bed and full hat. Or are you worried? I mean are there. Black helicopters understood that question. I'm listening to the questions. Did you ever price in your head of Mike? Why are you buying the company? Got it. The deal is are you are you worried? I mean, seriously anytime a device come to comes on your FDA cleared, and all that sort of medical device, but even so like you're going up against the multibillion dollar. Pharmaceutical giants in one of their sweet spot cash cow things like oh yeah. We've got some huge percentage of the population on blood pressure. Medications that don't work very well, because half the population still doesn't have their blood pressure controlled. And you're saying this by at once last, I checked anyway, it's been a couple years since I looked the, there's no subscription like monthly cloud-based, you buy the thing and you use as long as you want forever, and it's all just included. Right. It is. Okay. Good. So that's not the monthly subscription go to the pharmacy. You know, flow through your insurance company, all that kind of stuff. I mean, are they just pissed at you blood pressure? Forty six point eight billion dollars a year is what high blood pressure costs Americans alone, not not talking worldwide. Just the US forty six point eight billion dollars is considered the cost of high blood pressure, and that's copays on medications. That's missed today's at work that strokes heart attacks. And so one is there a price on my head? No one's actually showed me a wanted poster yet, but I can't imagine that there will be pharmaceutical companies, not happy with this to that point. I will say that Zona has recently. And you know, this, you've been affiliated with the company for years. You've known about us. We've been on. Show before then just full disclosure. They're a USA carrying the very, very early days of bulletproof acquis called upgraded self on the website. I used to carry zone on like this, one of those pieces of biohacking, your ever heard of that's based on jet fighter pilot medical stuff like it's just cool. And I don't think we carried anymore. I remember. Yeah. But it's, it's still. It's just it's a cool thing. So that that's a little affiliation. We're talking about. But other than that, we say -ffiliated like there's no other commercial stuff going. Oh, no. I just meant you, you know the company you've known for a long time. The but we've actually really forced mainstream as of last year and I'm super excited about it. And then zone has been like this off the radar science that no one's quote unquote heard of. And then all of a sudden we've really taken the taken taken the juices, and gone full strength. We started actually advertising national television last year. I'm sure you've seen that around full disclosure. We're all over the place. You know we've got. Tons of physician backgrounds. In fact, we just had an endorsement by Dr Phil recently butyl, who got involved with fun and fill. Learn about us because Travis stork, who is actually, the host of the TV show. The doctors of the doctors. Worldwide syndication on that show. Travis store who's the host there. He's actually are the face of our brand. He's our spokesperson for the brand. So you talking some pretty big names willing to put themselves out there to, to promote this type of science because their goal is that they want their patients. They want that people in general to live healthier, lives to live longer lives. And that's not a medication ridden life. It's hovered people to really understand what it takes for, for someone like Travis stork to build reductive Melville step up to do this. I mean, I I've been on a few shows like that, even on doctor's interviewed Dr Oz on Bill radio about, you know, the, the incredibly high standard that's required for any doctor, but specifically someone who's on TV to be able to stand up and endorse something, how people actually misused doctors, names, and all that. But you actually have a fully legal that it signed sealed delivered proper. Agreement in place, which means that it's subject to level scrutiny that most people would not even believe well and, and doctors like that because they're in the public light it, it's not some doctor clinic down the road who's willing to to recommend it. I mean, these are people that have their careers, potentially at stake for making these types of things. And it's like not not that there's any legal implication behind it. But you're talking about I remember talking with Travis initially. When I went through getting him to be a spokesperson for the product. He went through this with a fine tooth comb because his name was going on nothing that had not already been vetted and went through the research read all of the studies himself. In fact, his mom has high blood pressure. And the first thing we did was sent a unit to his mom, and he waited, the entire period, just to see if it had impact on his mom before he was willing to do anything and it's like for him, the idea that here's a here's a doctor whose mother suffers with condition, and he could. Scribe her anything he wanted by writing the prescription himself, and he sends her a medical device to try to find solution to me, that was he was are kind of people. It's exactly I it to my dad and I definitely will talk about things. I don't know if this works, but generally, I'm gonna put something on the website, like, I, I wanna I wanna have a good degree of rigor there. So I read all the studies and said, yeah, this, this is based on fundamental real science and observed effects someone did the work and it's amazing because a lot of the stuff that we do it up grade labs. I'm pretty sure we have this at upgrade labs of at retail. And if you're listening to this upgrade labs is a company that spun out of bulletproof that has this experience, you go in LA today, the Beverly Hilton, and in Santa Monica, and we have a whole variety of devices that are based on this idea that you can have more control of your own biology. And we have this own plus there, because I wanted people to understand, you can get. To enough hours worth of cardio in about twenty one minutes. If the pressure, the timing, the speed the cadence the recovery are all carefully designed based on data to give you much bigger results. And this is exactly the same line of thinking act with the same, and it's huge. This -rupt of though the thing that gives me the most pleasure is, is disrupting things like breaking big dumb things. And when I hear there's tens of billions of dollars getting poured away, on blood pressure medication in there is a useful blood pressure medication for some people. No problems, but it's just way over prescribed and even the latest numbers, they opened the show with about this new low number I, pardon me wonders is that real. Or is that a marketing ploy to sell more drugs, because they did that with cholesterol numbers awhile back keep lowering the safe, upper limit for cholesterol? Even though probably two dozen people have been on the show of gone through hard science in two of my books saying total cholesterol is not a useful number inflammation. A useful number. All right. Let's, let's talk a little bit more about what happens when you do this type of training of your vascular system, one of the things that a lot of more experienced by hackers or the doctors listen to the show will know about is nitric oxide. And this is a signaling molecule that we really didn't know mattered very much until recently, and it has to do with vacillation. Does training your vascular system with biofeedback the way Zona does does have any effect on your nitric oxide level, love that the nitric oxide levels? Interesting that people take subst the supplements. Nonstop, try to increase nitric oxide lakes, beat is the most common one. Right. I mean, personally, I take pick notching all in L arginine and, and other stuff. But everything that you're taking for that is actually triggering the production of nitric oxide is not actually delivering nitric oxide, your body using like Zona. To use that ice. Oh, metric exercise in use that phrase, a lot, the ice exercise found in his own is actually triggers. The production of nitric oxide levels, even beyond what, what supplements and stuff do. Nitric oxide is linked to so many different benefits in the body when it's at, at higher levels, obviously people want this elevated and it's everything from from workout recovery. It is actually helps an it again. I'll say them speaking to the claims of nitric oxide, not Zona, but actually helps reverse symptoms of diabetes. It actually lowers blood pressure decreases overall body pain, like it's ridiculous. What nitric oxide overcomes? One of the things that's really fun about one of the claims that we don't make about Zona, but I would love to. But no clinical studies were there. Zona increases nitric oxide production, nitric oxide production, actually. Has the ability to cure erectile dysfunction. It actually has the ability to stop migraine headaches. You know, it's not a medical claim Moore would morning would there you go. Zona can create morning would there you go? Regulate that there you go, put that on an FDA clearance. No. But what, what I'm saying to not be too crass about things is that when you do things to increase nitric oxide, whether it's supplements, whether it's actually all the things that do that. And when I say increase that you can measure it with saliva on the little little saliva. Test strip for nitric oxide. So this is a real data point when you do that. When you wake up in the morning and you're a guy you wake up more, like a teenager and less like an older person. And that's pretty darn predictable. There said that without being too crass. That's good. That's good. By the way, if you guys are looking for crass just listened to my upset about gains wave because sometimes. You just have to talk about your junk in some certain way amazing to quote, one of our board members. I want to make the claim Zona makes you Woody Woody. It was a research proposition. You could do clinical trials on if it increases unedu- gawk side. What about for women, though? What would affect women all of the exact same same issues because you're talking about nitric oxide, which is a vase odiaum later. So it increases blood flow. So any place you want blood flow to be positive, obviously, that's going to go into effect that the vascular health issue at the vascular health, but I'm going to add to that and say that the nitric oxide levels, increase Vasil dilation, which obviously blood flow is non restricted in environment of as dilation. But it also is acts like a muscle relaxer in that area as well. So not only is the, the veins opening wider. Particularly resistance vessels, which haven't been given a lot of credibility in or not credibility. But a lot of notoriety, if you will, in medical research, and we're now finding even that's a, a big deal. It's not just the veins. Now, just the arteries, but it's actually, the resistance vessels that connect them together, are, are even more important. But nevertheless. It's not just blood flow. It's also letting the muscle relax around the, the blood flow. So it's kind of like a double whammy in their less muscle constriction. What else happens with nitric oxide? So there's sexual side effects, there's more pump. If you're exercising a you're gonna see your veins pump out. You're gonna get better. Blood, the muscles. What else does the, the researching up suggest nitric oxide can do not necessarily own, even though you may influence nitric oxide. You're not claiming that those affects our yours until their clinical trials, but what other things nitric oxide do that might be useful. My recommendation is, is a quick web, search would find all of that for you. Because every site says something different the reality is, is that nitric oxide is, I said, it's obviously muscle pump is obviously vase, oh, dilation, which leads to cardiovascular health. It's as I mentioned, the upset in reversal of symptoms of diabetes. It's, it's any number of things relating. To that my favorite one as I was saying, is that increased Vasil dilation, and decreased muscle constriction? Actually resolves migraines. That's actually a proven effect, which is absolutely amazing to me that there's something that you can do to, to interrupt migraines. Now, of course, we don't make that claim because we don't have the clinical study to support it, but all of the evidence that we have in our clinical studies actually leads to the same place. Very interesting. So for people who suffer from my grains, or have loved onto do they pretty much know that it has to do with changes in blood flow in the brain. That's triggering it. So it would follow that, if you could train your blood, your blood, vessel system, your circulation system, if you had to be more tightly controlled, maybe would have an effect could be worse could be better. But certainly, it's a plausible hypothesis until it's tested. All right. I, I like that thought I do know people whose migraines are made worse Bank reese's in nitric oxide, as well as better. And that's probably too much blood flow because it's not regulated. Well, so in that case probably had sustained increases they'd be fine. But I'm I'm I think that's a really interesting aspect there. What about just cognitive fitness in general, like is your brain gonna work better? If I have better, control of my circulatory system, boy, I think we were talking earlier about people who have actually been misdiagnosed with early onset dementia and stuff like that in the, the, the over regulation of blood pressure, medication people who are on, too, much blood pressure, medication blood pressure medication are getting getting side effects from at one of the side effects memory loss. One of the side effects is just decreased cognitive ability. And when we end up in a situation where we're able to get people off of those types of medications you notice that people are being as the personalities, almost restored, people are coming back to life in some ways, not literally coming back to life. But the fact is that the cognitive function has been restored where it hasn't been in a long time increase nitric oxide, as you're well aware being a bulletproof guy increases, blink brain oper-. Nation. You end up with higher cognitive functioning simply because increased nitric oxide levels in the brain. It almost becomes a rabbit trail of conversations when you're talking about the benefits of, of this type of thing. Do you notice anything happen? You mentioned that you take L arginine, which is, you know, acid that increases. Visit elation in nitric oxide and you take pig national, which is an extract of mislead pine bark that also can increase nitric oxide levels. In fact, I think we have pidgin all in one of the one of the bullet performance. But at least if we there, it made it in the final list, or it didn't. But I put it on the first list, anyway. It was a contender. Yeah. It was a contender if it didn't make it in the final. So these are useful well-studied supplements. You take those personally, do you notice an additive difference, whether or not you've done Trousdale just like personally. So if you're doing training of your vascular system, and then you add things that improve Lasko health. Is there a synergistic effect or one? Yeah. If I get off of doing supplements, let's say I travel, I don't take them with me. I will notice brain fog by the time I returned home. Even if you're training, your, your Zona, plus along the way, if I'm using Zona. No, because the same thing, but bear in mind, I will say Zona has effects. As I mentioned earlier that four to eight week window so taking a supplement is going to have a relatively rapid affect. Yeah. Using his own takes a little bit of time, because you need to you're building your health. It's like jumping on a treadmill once and expecting to lose weight, not the case. It needs the build up of that and using his own as much the same way. So all of the effects, the lowered blood pressure, the increased nitric oxide levels. All of that stuff does come over time. The good news is because all of those facts are long lasting. So you take that, when you don't take it for, you know, say you don't use Zona you go out of town and you don't take it with you. Your blood pressure is not going to spike while you're out of town, because your body's already been retrained. So if you don't jump on the treadmill this afternoon, you're not gonna gain ten pounds over time. You're going to end up going back to that, same, you know, and tropic state that your body was in four you started using it. But nevertheless, it's not an overnight solution nor is in an overnight. Detriment if you don't. Okay. So it's a slow response curve. You said it for six to eight weeks to people stop after that, or they see the results in their blood pressure, if they're going to see results, but then how do you have to retrain? Or how do you continue again? I'll use the treadmill example and say that that's probably the most common one that I use that is if you're on a treadmill, six to eight week, you start noticing a change in your body, and it's not the same change that you'll learn notice with Zona, but you try to lose weight great. You go out you exercise, six day weeks. You start noticing the journey levels up. You start noticing that much like that, same treadmill if you stepped off of it, you don't fall out of shape tomorrow. But if you stopped using it for the next six months, you're going to notice, physiological, deterioration, same thing with zone, so you're going to use it for that for two eight weeks until you get your real initial big push that ten to fifteen percent reduction is usually that, that a four weeks is the earliest that we normally find eight weeks as the very latest so that sick. Week window is usually usually the sweet spot. People are going to see that, that reduction. And sometimes it literally happens overnight, David's the craziest thing like people can use it for four weeks, five weeks. They call us they say I'm just not noticing the results and we begged them stick with it. Like will extend your money back guarantee period. So that you feel better about using it for another two weeks, and we'll get it return phone call saying, oh my gosh. My blood pressure literally just dropped twenty points last week. Like I'm back in the normal zone. And it just happens overnight like that, because the body makes the change and again, I use weight loss as an example, because a lot of people can relate to that. And it's like it's like hitting that plateau, and you can't lose a pound no matter what you do, and then all of a sudden, you lose three pounds one morning when you jump on the scale it's that same kind of feeling when you notice that reduction go down, but much like that treadmill, you're not going to stop using his own, so throughout your entire life using those own as a as a. I'll say a supplement to a healthy life over time. Don't stop using it. If it takes about eight minutes, a day to do this. I'm assuming that, that I already know because it has different user levels, but multiple people can share one of these in household, or something like that. It's twelve twelve minutes per day, twelve along, along with the device. The device, actually stores all of the data for two users. Okay. And the same thing goes, we actually have a website, where people can actually plug the device into their computer and by USB, it actually uploads all of their results, so to users can use the device to users can use the website portal. It's fantastic for people that are going to their doctor in showing their doctor the results, and they're tracking all their numbers. But knowing your numbers is the first is the first issue for most people to overcome its it's figure out what they are now start tracking because what gets measured gets accomplished. So that basically cuts the cost. And if you were to share it with more than two people, which are probably not supposed to it'd be even less. So I think this falls within the realm of affordable by hacking technology. Just looking at how do you make this happen in millions of households and guys just just the idea that blood pressure medications themselves average eleven hundred dollars a year? Okay, doing all right. Someone someone taking blood pressure, one person, taking blood pressure, medications spends on average eleven hundred dollars per year just pain for the medication. Unbelievable. And that's matter that copays with insurance, and everything Levin hundred dollars versus a one time purchase and the eleven hundred dollars never comes back. All right. I've got one more question for you. And this has to do with my new book on anti-ageing that I'd just finished the draft of its coming out in, in a little while. It's how given that you have your Zona plus your hacking your blood pressure. You take supplements. You know, you're clearly a healthy guy. You're in shape. Helen, you think you're gonna live personally shooting for one twenty one twenty and, and I laughed, because when I turned forty years old, you know, people who what's it feel like being forty and I would say, it's just weird to think that third of my life is over already. Nice. I would get some. You know, some bath challenged people would actually take a while to get that, but yeah, personally, I see no reason why. People can't be living, well beyond what people expect life expectancy to be. But the you know that better than anybody, right? Yeah. I told people that forty five was my twenty fifth percent birthday. That's amazing. And like like you said. Like you got some pushback like you know, it's okay to push back because something's going to happen. One of them is that you'll die before me, and I won't make to one eighty and, and that's okay. Or you'll die before me, and I make it to eighty and that's okay too, because you're not taking care of yourself. Like maybe we could talk about ever does what we can to feel really good right now. Live a long time. And then we'll both live as long as we're going to. That's good table stakes people don't believe. That's all there you go. All right. What is the website for your magic the magic device? Well, we're easily easily found at Zona dot com, Dave and that's for here in the United States because we're here in the US right now, but I know you're a resident in Canada Canadian listeners can find us at Zona health dot CA, and on either of those sites. Our team is actually put together a coupon code for any of your listeners. You talk about the affordability factor. And although we've already proven that it's a affordable. Bio hack anyone using coupon code Dave. Immediately gets a seventy five dollar coupon. Anyways, so seventy five bucks off the price of price unit, Zona dot com, coupon code Dave saves us seventy five dollars through, which is a nice give for listeners. Thank you for that. Sure. And this is really good science. I looked at the dozen research pieces that exist around this that we talked about head of the show, and I think if you're, you're listening to this, you have high blood pressure, talk to your doctor, but this is a cool device, and it's one of the gives you a little bit more control without needing any chemicals at all. So I think totally meets the bar as an epic and amazing bio hack. Plus, it came out of the air force. How cold is really cool. Cool thing to Davis is, we mentioned earlier is someone wants to try it, try it. And we know many different things that money back guarantee. Got a ninety day money back guarantee. And what's the sad part, I'll tell you this is the saddest thing when we get returns back, I see a box come down. In our hallway. And it just makes me cringe because the majority of the returns that comes to us, or people who never even tried it. It's still shrink, wrapping because the device, actually keeps track of all the usage. So when return comes back, we go look, and I'm like, oh, my gosh. Like the people who returning it are the people who, who didn't didn't even fry it. They got it and decided they just, you know, buyer's remorse or whatever setting it's like it's it comes out of you have to lose like Zona plus jelly Donut Zona plus series Donut. You know, some people are gonna choose the jelly Donut. They really are. They really are. And they really got some mindset thing in energetic thing. But if you're gonna do the work, well it's eight minutes of actual work in four minutes arrest. The twelve minutes a day, Minnesota rate, it seems like investment to me. So it's been a supporter of, of this tax idea this type of biohacking for going on seven years now. It's been a long time. Yeah, your audience is just such a perfectly primed audience for a product like this, though. It's, it's to me, it's the ultimate bio hack. It's, it's absolutely crazy. Yeah. If. If this is something that's was looking to, to hack. I just I fully agree. And if you'd have no issues, your blood pressure, this probably isn't the one for you. But so many people have this, or it's in your family. So that's why going for my dad, and it's it, it has my full endorsement here because it's real, so thanks for bringing it out fighting the good fight and just talking about this. It is a disruptor appreciate the time. David. I'm hoping that price. And my head's not accurate. If you like today's episode you know what to do. Go to zone dot com, use code Dave save yourself, seventy five bucks. You have a ninety day money back guarantee. And I consider this device for yourself. If you're dealing with hacking, your own blood pressure, or for a family member, if not this show is meant to give back that's a beautiful gift that zones providing there for you. But mostly, I just want you to have control of your biology, and high blood pressure, just sucks and so many different levels. Let's stop it.

Thanks for having me, we'd like to start the show with having you. Tell us in our listeners a little bit about the work that you do in why you enjoy helping people improve their relationships. Okay. So my name is after Amy Cohen, and I am physician, I specialize in anti-aging in regenerative medicine with specialty on a sexual bitter sexual health. So I use a combination of integrative medicine and regenerative medicine to help men and women improve their sex lives. So I really enjoy this because I, I think it's really important to have a healthy sex life to have at no about kind of how these organs work at how to keep them as healthy as possible. So I do a lot of work with men and women mostly on that sort of on the medical side, trying to help them to understand how to keep their sexual organs working properly. Excellent. Will it sounds like we can go a lot of different ways with this information super interesting, we'll talk a lot about that work in will focus in and talk about CBD in how it's being used in sexual health these days and the overall role that sexual health plays in our relationship. So why don't we start with that? What are some issues with sexual health in talk about how that affects relationships are there, there, any number of issues, a sexual health, obviously, there's everything from the sort of psychological components, which are obviously very important for both men and women and being able to kind of get in the right head space as ready to have an active in other sex life of everything down to the physical parts of it. Were your body is ready where you have the blood flow where you need it, where the organ. Responding as they're supposed to. So there's a wide spectrum of, of things that make sex either work or not work, depending on each person in kind of what they're going through. Someone's overall health is going to have a big affect. So besides just taking care of your body working out eating right? Are there any major things that you're finding with patients that they could be focusing on to improve their sexual health? Yeah. I mean certainly like you said it certainly the diet and lifestyle, kind of basic sales, very important sort of low inflammatory diet and lifestyle is really important to get the body ready for any kind of actively in for healthy aging, general, hormonal balance is something that I ran into quite a bit. And so I do we do a lot of work with hormones with women, you know, as we age, your hormones are always shifting and changing, and the hormonal balance can can change markedly both with age with lifestyle. Factors changes. We do a lot of work with that as well. And of course, you know what you're eating and how you're working out in such is going to affect your or moans as well. So that it all kind of ties together, but hormones is a big one night amount of nitric oxide. People are getting really important, especially for men in let guys don't know this. But as you get older, you stopped making much nitric oxide in oxide is really important to be able to have a wreck shins blood flow that you need to have. So that's something that I work with men about a lot, a lot on is, how to get more nitric oxide, a both in their diet, as well as up laments things like that. You mentioned that alone inflammatory diet as well. Can you expand a little bit on that because I've heard a little bit about how can be bad for autumn Yoon diseases, and I'm wondering if that's kind of similar research? Yeah, exactly. So you know inflammation as we as we talk about in the medical community is kinda the root of all diseases, or at least the root of most diseases these days and inflammation is basically, your body is, is reacting to something but is reacting to. Like a stress coming know, the comes and goes, your body, kind of, in this amped up state, where you have this. Inflammation. That's ongoing. Your body is always reacting to it, and that's why you so you have this ongoing inflammation. So this causes everything from athletes closes. So, you know, in your blood vessels, your building a plaque to gut problems to brain problems Alzheimer's is linked to, to, to inflammation. So really almost all medical problems are so alo- inflammatory diet. Basically means eating foods that are not going to cause you to become inflammatory, so that's different for every person. But a lot of foods that are commonly associated with inflammation, or things like gluten dairy soy sugar is very limited for pretty much everyone. So it's different for every person, but knowing what foods are gonna cause you to have got inflammation, which can lead to all different other types of inflammation, can be really important. Tomb thing for the way we go through life is how we're taking care of our body in, we have a relationship podcasts. And we talk about a lot of things communication and, and sexual intimacy and doing with the in laws, and they're all really important. But if you're doing those from a place of chronic inflammation of being tired, not feeling. Great your hormones are all out of whack because of what you're eating or because of aging, then it's going to be that much harder to have a difficult conversation with your partner, and it's like this baseline, right of our overall wellness and the better our diet. The better sleep that we're getting. Than the more exercise were getting. Then when we go into all these things that we were talking about on the show, we're going to do, so with a more clear mind with less stress just feeling better. So it's like it's like this thing, don't talk about it or not a health and nutrition show in that sense, were relationship podcast, but in a sense, like, if you're not taking care of that, baseline, all the other stuff that we talk about so important still gotta do it. No matter what your nutrition is. But the more in line, you can get your overall wellness the easier. It's gonna be to tackle all the things we talk about on the show. So I think it's really important to kind of highlight that and it might be a no-brainer for some people like, yeah, of course, but I think a lot of us were busy. We're trying to improve our relations. Ship in, we might not be thinking about our sugar intake as a way to improve our communication, with our spouse necessarily that it's a great point. And I think that the things something you mentioned that I also talk to my patients about our stress and sleep as well. And how imperative it is to have control of these things, just for, for general health, but also for sexual health. So for, for stress, for instance, when you have high stress that you're not you're not sort of reacting to it. Well, and you have these high cortisol levels over time that are not supposed to be high all the time. It's supposed to kind of go up and down. But if you're always stressing, you have high cortisol it affects all of your other hormones, so all of a sudden your testosterone is not me being made properly. So all of a sudden, you're not interested in sex, or you can't have sex because you don't have to stop thrown or it all these things play into not just general health sexual health and sleep is the same way a lot of your sexual Moser actually made at night while you're sleeping. So if you're only sleeping for. Dollars at night, and you're actually not making growth hormone, you're not making testosterone as of the other hormones that are made at nighttime, then you're not gonna be interested in having sex in part of the relationship that you are gonna missing out on essentially so had his CBD player role in this. Does it help with any of these hormones or chronic, fatigue, or any of these issues that people can be coming across that are preventing them from having good sexual health? Yeah, it's a great question up, so CBD we're hearing more and more about it just over the last few years, it's been around, obviously, for thousands of years, but it's really been the last twenty or thirty years that we've been looking at CBD by itself. It's, it's so it's anti-inflammatories. That's one thing that's really important for we talked about inflammation CD in its own ride is anti-inflammatory. So it helps kinda damp in a system wide inflammation, and you can use locally. You can use it for local areas of pain. You can rub it on or you can take it orally, or, and you can also apply in or other ways. As well. But it's helped helper inflammation. It's helpful for improving blood flow. So that something else again you can you can use it either locally with vaginal applications. You're actually you're actually applying you're getting improved blood flow into that area, or you can take take pills, or syrups, things like that. The other thing about CD it can do a lot of things, but it can help with exiled in stress in the way that we perceive, stressing Zayed actually acts on the same receptors that, that some of the antidepressants do that they're called SR is a Prozac. So the serotonin receptors he actually acts on those same receptors so you can have kind of this improved mood in pleasure, which I think, all of us would agree is helpful, just in general, but also were relating to relating to our, our partner in sex in that part of it just to be clear in, pretty sure, I got my information right on this but is not psychoactive. So we, we think of CBD think of pot maybe. Getting high to someone has concerns about that. Can you clear that up? Yeah. Exactly. So, so cannabis which is sort of your marijuana category is made up of two different compounds. One of them is CBD, which is can have been die. All the other one is THC which is tetrahydrocannabinol two different things. But CBD is the non psycho active component in it acts on different receptors all over your body. There's actually, you know, hundreds of papers and studies being done in our happened on the look CBD from everything from helping with anxiety to helping improve a sex to helping with Alzheimer's or ale all kinds of so much research on CD right now because it doesn't have the psycho act of part, but because it is it has other things with inflammation in blood flow and, and relaxing tissues, improving mood, and all these other things, however, you seen this put to use in people that you've worked with in in what kind of results like a specific example. Of, of someone in how they would use this in what then came of that application. So couple of different ways you can take CD orally, like as a as a drop into the tongue or a liquid that you can take you can take that sort of everyday, which has some great just general relaxing effects. I have patients who take it before bed. As part of their sort of evening ritual that really helps them sleep, which, again, as we talked about, before it's can be really important to, to get that healthy sleep just for your whole your whole life that sort of taking it systematically, as one option. The other option is have patients that use it as a, as a sort of topical arousal agents or topical application for both men and women. So there are, there are oil 's arousal oils, in such that you see, d sometimes in combination with other things, too, that are used during sex before sex just apply to the genitals in orbit. Women to improve blood flow, and maybe decrease pain, increase in sations pleasure and things like that. Pretty good. Right. Great things that can come of this, and I like the fact that I actually have not personally used CBD oil, I've smoked pot in oil, fading and, and know the effects of that. And I'm not, I guess, proponent like I'm not I'm not anti pot. It's is, I guess what I'm saying. But also to our listeners. I'm not saying that it's for everyone that you need to go and do it. But I, I love the fact that it's all natural CBD in marijuana in it's being decriminalized, and that's a whole other thing. And I think that's great. Because the reality is, is when it comes bringing this back to sexual health in the relationship, there's a lot of things assessor is anti-depressants and prescription drugs painkillers that people will bring into their lives to improve their lives. Personally and in there are situations where I'm sure they're helpful. But. But I'm very hopeful and excited that CBD in pot is becoming more widely accepted, culturally and used within the medical community in situations like you're using them. And I think it's, it's such a great set forward in, and I'm excited to, to try CBD for the for its benefits. And the fact that, that it's natural. And so someone listening, what would be the first step to, to trying this in personally, use it in their lives for personal use in to bring in to improve the relationship. I mean, they're all different. The resources out there in products. I think CBD in generals, very safe. So, like you said, it's, it's doesn't have THC in it a which it's a psychoactive component of it. So the, the CBD by itself, whether you're taking it orally, or you're using it as sort of a row zal weights creams, are, they're generally very safe. Certainly there's concern to shut your doctor about it. I, but there are a number different products out there that used these, these things. Now, there's a there's a product by Olmecs OSHA that I like a lot, this, this sort of isn't all natural combination of CD with some other sort of natural components that can be it can be great, but there are a lot of other products out there as well. And I think that just doing some research and seeing what's out there talking to your doctor making that safer, you and then give it a shot because these things can be can be really helpful. You mentioned earlier how CD has been around for thousands of years, but just recently like in the last thirty years, or so that it's becoming more available. More more mainstream. Is it just more recently that it's been used to help sexual health, and if so, what was it really used for prior to now in its research? So for thousands of years over four thousand or so years ago, CBD surcharges. TVD. A. N T H D's back, then it was it was the combination. It was the whole marijuana plant the whole cannabis plan was used in all different ancient civilizations. From Egypt in Asia Tamie, but they used it for during childbirth. They used applications to decrease pain during sex used to help decrease pain, Alec premenstrual, pain, and nausea in cramps. They use these formulations as Afridi's. Yeah. Acts so they for many, many years really up until the early early twentieth century cannabis, which again, clued included both THC ANSI redy was used in sort of sexual reproductive medicine a very commonly. And then eventually in the early twentieth century, it was sort of taken. Off the market. We were told that we couldn't use it anymore. So it's just been in the last really decade or so that has kind of come back around again, or people are, like, hey, actually, maybe there are some war some good stuff about this EV d that's not going to cause people to have these weird psychoactive parts can can be beneficial soon would be you mentioned a brand repeatable brand. Could you say that again, like because I'm actually interested? I know there's a lot of out there. What are some of the ones that are vetted? As as not necessarily like I don't wanna scare people as safe because it's all pretty safe. I'm sure but more like a quality in pure so what are the ones that I that I have been associated with is a brand through? It's called omega six AM six, and they have some product called OSA, which just came out pretty recently. And it's a CD arousal or arousal oil, which has eight different sort of botanical vanilla ginger sin. Cinnamon and coconut oil and all these things that are very they're all completely natural, all different things. But it's used for this is primarily marketed to women, but it could be used for men or women. But this is a nice product. I've just seen it in used at myself and it gets, it's probably a good good brand as well. Okay. Topical solution, or that's topical Olmecs, actually makes some other CD products as well. They, they're they've been in this market for a long time. But this is a topical oil. It's actually a coconut oil. So it's, you know, it's completely completely safe and all actual you had to be a little bit careful. You don't wanna use latex condoms with it, because with oil, you have to that those things can be a problem. But other than that, it can be a commute. Lot of fun. Very interesting. It seems like we're just beginning to even though the things have been around for thousands of years were just beginning to rediscover them. You know, because they've been known, and they've been used for years, and it's becoming more and more mainstream. Do you see this like on the ground with your patients like experiencing results in are they happy and seeing positive benefits? Yeah. Absolutely. I think you're right. There's so many things that, that from CBD to others of integrative. Medicines that used to be used a long time ago, they kind of fell out of favor and then they've kind of gotten rediscovered. I think that CD is one of those things that there's so much potential in it and, and there's so much research behind in. We're just learning more and more every day. But my my patients in, you know, using a combination of, of this type of, of product, plus, you know, balancing hormones, plus lifestyle lifestyle factors Nicu's. Those were all imbalance aunts, more sort of invasive procedures, and things that can be helpful as well, all of these things together to, to really help improve patient sexual health. So seems like CD can be help. You get better sleep, which is going to help you all the ways we discuss it can help you with feelings like topically feeling more relaxed or more rows. It seems like it's like super broad. So if someone's lis-. Listening. Why would they go out and get it? They wanted to see certain benefits. What would the avatar be for the person that's going to go? Buy some CBD to try it. I mean, honestly, anyone pretty much anyone, whether you're if you even people who are completely healthy don't have any concerns will probably see the improvements because we're having improvement in blood flow. You're, you're also in theory, CBD can desensitize Hain receptor. So it's in people who have a pain in certain areas from nerves or from muscle contractions, potentially CBD can be helpful for that just decreasing stress and anxiety and your response to those things, it can be helpful with CD can help with those things. And then, of course, Dr inflammation, how LCD helps inflammation. But the short answer to your question is that anyone who is interested in experimenting, I think could benefit from, from trying these kinds of products and seeing if they're, they're helpful, but especially people who were having problems with stress. And sleep and inflammation inflammatory lifestyle. Those are probably the people who are going to affect the most, but even people who are really healthy will probably see some benefits. Do you have any experience working with new moms who may be our nursing or having issues with that or just in general after giving birth, like everything down there? There's just not the same.

I have I have I have been some patients who are certainly are have had just had babies. Tell people in general most most of these most medications are not studied in nursing parents in pregnant, mother. So I never tell people to use any type of medication has not been study, including CD in that population. However, once nursing bays over these kind of medications he can be helpful, you know, it takes a while obviously, for people who have had babies for everything to kind of get back to being more like it used to be in. It's never going to be exactly like it used to be. But, you know, it takes awhile for those tissue for the two divisional tissues and things to get back to being where they were. So everyone the first step is to be patient with yourself at, you know, your new, mom, because that is something that it will improve with time. But I do think that CV and other types of sort of gentle products like that in be helpful, once everything is healed up when their religious trying to. Get back to get their sex life back in and get the blood flow back in their sensation back and things like that. You mentioned earlier in our conversation, nitric oxide in it's important for erections, and we just kind of skimmed over that. But I've never heard of that. And I don't even know what foods it's in. So can you talk a little bit more about that? So nitric oxide is something that your own body makes it's made primarily while they all of your body, but especially in the cells that line, your blood vessels, and one of its key roles is, it's a bazo diet, which means it opens up the blood vessels to allow blood flow it to all different areas of your body. So it's important for every part of your body, that when it comes to erection, way, the directions work is your brain, essentially tells your penis. Hey, let's get some more blood flow in the way that happens. Is it releases nitric oxide in the area? You have blood that rushes into the area, but as you get older in that, starting about age thirty five or forty you men and women began to lose the ability. To make nitric oxide. So that's one of the reasons that we start to see erectile dysfunction really become much more prominent in men after age forty so things that you can do to improve nitric oxide. So exercise, a great one any kind of exercise, whether whether it's aerobic anaerobic can increase nitric oxide foods, like a green leafy vegetables, Aruba's spinach, beets are big a really common high source of nitric oxide, pomegranate, dark. Chocolate, there's a lot of foods that can be helpful in there are some supplements as well. That can that can be really helpful. There's a bunch of supplements that will have things like L Janine or Elsa. Tra- lean supplement called Neo forty that I like a lot that, that is been shown in clinical trials increase oxide. But this is important for men because if you can't you don't have oxide, you can't have erection, and that's the that's the end of the story. So if you really want to keep at nitric oxide up as you age, he just gave chasing excuse to eat more dark chocolate. Or spinach. Especially the chocolate tackle that, right? So how much would eating beats once a week have a improvement in it? Like how how much of food carrying nitric oxide to we need to eat? I know everyone's different. And but is it like daily? Everyone is different in age is a big part of it, as well as general health people who back to the sort of inflammation thing, people who have led sort of low implementary lifestyles. So as you get to be forty fifty if you don't have a lot of plaque build up, then you're still making your own nitric oxide, pretty well. And you're gonna need less whereas someone who has been eating a lot of sugar, their whole life, or get made into sugar than they all of a sudden they have plaque built up in their arteries, and they don't make oxide, and they're gonna need to eat more, so it could be some people might need to eat it everyday. Some people it may be every few days. But it's really dependent on other things you're doing as well. Are you exercising something else? Interesting that people don't know about is. That certain types of mouthwashes, listerine, mouthwashes, that we use actually decrease your own body's ability to make nitric oxide, because it kills the bacteria in your mouth that starts the sort of the, the whole process of making making oxide. So maybe don't use as much mouthwash, as you get older. It's kind of interesting. Yeah. Is nitric oxyde something that women have to worry about, as they age? Yeah. Absolutely. It's everyone men and women. And you know what I talk about in sexual because that's what we're talking about today. But nitric oxide is ever is important for everything your whole body from keeping your, you know, your blood pressure from going to high to keep your triplets rides to high to helping your with your athletic performance. I mean, it's literally important to keeping your skin healthy, you know, it's, it's important for all systems in your entire body. And it's one of these release talked about sort of components of health out there despite being one of the most important things. But yes, short answer. Yes, women needed as well and just like men, we stopped making as much as we get older. And how does it affect our sexual health? If we don't have it like obviously, we don't have to worry about erectile dysfunction. But how else are we affected in with our sexual health, if we're lacking in it? So you still have to have nitric oxide to get good blood flow to the genitalia. So even though. Oh, women. Don't have a wreck shows like men. Do we do have the clitoris is kind of like the male penis as you still wanna get lead flow to the clitoris indicate see a lot of the clitorises, actually buried in your body, and you don't see a lot of it? You're seeing a little tiny piece of it, but it's actually a fairly large structure. So getting blood flow to that area is very important. If you wanna have normal responses orgasms, also getting blood flow to the giant, very important, if you wanna have normal, normal lubrication, that's all about blood flow. So even though you even the women don't show, you know, the blood flow the same way that men do we still need it, and so not oxide still important. Actually just saw drawing of the clitoris, and it's like on a picture in it's huge. I had no idea. Yeah. The part that you don't see, like three or four inches deserted like the fork that we don't see this behind the back in the pelvis. That goes back behind the vagina wraps around other thing. So yeah, it's important. I love this holistic of. Coach to our health and sexual health because I feel like now it's more important or or harder than ever because for watching TV like every second commercial is Viagra or Cialis. And insert I'm sure that has its application, but I imagine that's more the default for a lot of people as like oh I'm having erectile dysfunction. I need Viagra in, in unfortunately, it seems like doctors a lot of times to rather than taking this holistic approach of like, are you exercising. What are you eating this? Nitric oxide is so important. You might cure, your dysfunction, is that even possible like curing it. Have you seen that where people rather than taking prescription drugs are, are exercising, or eating nitric oxide? Rich foods and then eliminating these issues. Are you seeing that? Not a younger people certainly as we get older, older and older men. It's less likely that just one thing that can help. But, but yeah, in younger men, mid thirties, early forties, with dysfunction, a lotta time, just making small judgments to diet exercise. Maybe maybe doing some things to improve their testosterone levels, getting hired nitric oxide levels to make a big difference. There's also been called called shockwave therapy, which uses sound waves, which is really pretty new in the US is a new therapy for dysfunction in man. That's amazing that we use a lot of that as well. So there are some of those things in, in, in combination hand absolately take a guy who has had who's had thought function in tournament does not have any more. Can you quickly elaborate on shockwave therapy? Yeah. As others is has called low-intensity extra corporal shockwave therapy in the US the most common those common name is gains. Wave is a protocol. That's one of the ones. That's it's us all over the United States, but it's basically just this instrument. It's done. Doctors offices, you, you come in, maybe twice a week for three weeks at it's thirty minutes treatment where there's high intensity sound ways are sent down into the penis, and it's not painful you walk out of the officers. No side effects. But essentially, what's happening is this this treatment creates this micro trauma in the peanuts? And the micro trauma is simply tells the body, hey, we need to fix this. Let's repair this, this issue. And so it recruits themselves in recruits blood flow in all these things over the course of the next few months, it actually results in improved increased blood vessel formation increase increased blood flow, firmer erections, longer-lasting, your actions was, essentially repairing what was wrong with that tissue. Using these sound waves. Knew that to me, I've never heard of that. But interesting in again, it seems like it's just a more holistic approach rather than like, here's a pill. Now, you're going to have an erection for four hours and, and getting your body to heal itself, which is the whole idea behind regenerative medicine, integrative medicine, your body is perfectly capable for the most part of, of healing itself. It just needs to kind of figure out how to do that. We can give you tools to do that. I love that approach in you've given us in our listeners, some interesting things to think about definitely, it seems like trying to see these like a no brainer. It's like if even if it's just helps you sleep better, improves, your sex life. Then that's an added bonus and are there any other regenerative medicine techniques applications when it comes to sexual health that we haven't covered that that you'd like. To let us know about. Yeah. So some of the other things more sort of more invasive, but can be also really effective are some of the platelet rich plasma stem cell therapies, which, which which doctors are doing now where basically we're taking a patient's own blood and sometimes their own fat or other sources in getting sim cells in growth factors from the own their own patient, and then injecting that back into the sexual organs to, again, too, 'cause this regeneration of tissue in those organs to improving blood flow at improving the health of the digits, basically, adding a binding, those things with some of these other therapies, we talked about can be a great way to help patients, sort of naturally, heal themselves, who would be like the ideal client for that or customer. So I get it depends on done these treatments on healthy, men and women who don't really have complaints or concerns, but have commended we've done these treatments. They've actually felt like they've kind of gone back a couple of decades in sort of their performance in their ability, their responsiveness in there. Sedation orgasms and things like that. But I've also done. These treatments on men who are who have pretty severe ED they've had diabetes or prostate problems, or high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and, and really have had years of struggling with addiction, a redone combinations of these therapies with the injections, and that sound wave therapies, and other things, and kind of been able to turn some of that turn the turn the clock back and same thing with women, women women are more complicated in that. It's not just about one flew over him. There's a lot of other things that go into this road of sexual performance in health, their responsiveness. But we can certainly do these procedures on women as well. And they can have good results SUV someone's listening in. They want to either. Learn more or visit a physician like yourself. Can you let us know where they can find you in, then if they aren't close to Utah, I believe it is where you're at. Then how they can find other practitioners so yeah. So easily to get to me is just on my web. Which is Dr Amy killin dot com in it's Amy. L E N. And then and I do all these procedures and things as well. Anyone who does optional medicine or integrative medicine will be able to talk to you about some of these general categories that I've spoken to you about gains. Wave is a is the sound waves near me. That's, that's a national physician database that you can go to the to look for doctors that are doing gains wave that they have a website games, got dot com. Does that and then the other procedures I talked about the ocean the P shot which male female injections of PRP and stem cells. There are doctors around the country who don't do do those things as well. So it takes a little bit of research. But if you have questions reach out to me, and I'll try to help you by Cam Benke will will link to some, those resources that you gave us today in our show notes and on our website at ID, podcast dot com and Amy, thank you so much for coming on the show in talking about this.

Ep. 24: Father's Day Q&A with Essy

"Father's Day last Sunday. I gathered up your questions called. My Dad Dr Cobblestone Junior. Affectionately known as In I. Want you to know that there's probably nothing in this world that he loves more. Than to help people understand the importance. Of there, fork! The simple fork. In fighting disease and how? We should never think that it's okay. To injure endothelial cells. He is the ultimate task master and. Much everyone's disappointment. He doesn't prescribe a ninety percent plan. He is one hundred percent all in. And he expects the rest of us to follow suit. He does not believe in moderation as most of you know. But he does believe in you. And your ability to tackle this disease head on. And bring it to. It's knees. Nobody said that this was going to be easy. And that's okay. And all of us from time to time need a a really good challenge in our lives to push our our selves outside our comfort zones test are limits and see exactly what we're made of. My father speaks the truth. He never rounds up to make an argument land in his favor. And he just wants. US to live our best most vibrant lives. Now to give you a sneak peek some of the topics we discuss our nitric oxide, and why chewing leafy Greens every day. Is your best defense against chronic western disease including. covid nineteen. WHY FLUORIDE TOOTHPASTE! Is a no, no. My father's take on statins and supplements and of course. The fear of getting enough protein. You've got questions. We've got easy answers, so let's dive in, but before we do a quick reminder. All of you are invited to join our new live and online plan stock event. It's from August fourteenth to the sixteenth. We'll be streaming this interactive weekend learning lab straight from the ALLSTON family farm. Which is where my father grew up. And where he formed his early worldview and unwavering work ethic that led to a lifetime of research and seeking. We have a world class video team that's going to be on hand giving each of you a front row seat to the history of the farm and very candid conversations that I'll be having with my parents in between talks by the Brock Stars of the plan strong. Movement. visit, the show notes or go to plant stock. Twenty twenty dot com to register today and I've got some good news. Partial proceeds will benefit the allston foundation a five. Oh One C. Three. Dedicated to helping share the good news about plants. WanNa welcome everybody to another episode of the plant strong podcast in honor of father's Day. I'm going to be interviewing my father you know. We last brought him on the podcast three months ago when we just had the kind of the outbreak of Kobe nineteen. Nineteen here in the United States. And, so we'd love to get his thoughts on that also we have a bunch of questions from from our podcast. Listeners really that are that are directed towards you. Daddy, but let me open this up by saying you know in in in honor of father's Day You Know How lucky I am to have you as my father and you have done such a great job blazing such a a wonderful bright path forward not only for me, but for so many other people that have had the had the privilege and the honour of. Embracing your tenants around a whole foods, plant based lifestyle, and beyond that I've had the privilege of of seeing just how you conduct yourself as a as a father, a man and a great human being so. Thank you for that. So let me start by I. Want to share something with the listeners something that happened to me last Sunday. And, it's obviously something that you're well aware of but. I Love Mountain. BIKING I mountain bike behind my house. There's this greenspace of. Probably anywhere between. Twenty to fifty miles of mountain biking trails, and I've been mountain biking back there for well over. Twenty years without any kind of mishap or injury, but last Sunday morning I was riding with two of my friends, and on a an a decline that was going into a creek bed. I hit a slippery rock. took a nice tumble and basically. broke broke my the distal part of my fibula, which is is that? Would you say that's considered kind of part of the ankle? Yes. Yeah. And, so I immediately knew that something was seriously wrong. I try to stand up and got nauseous and wanted to vomit. God lightheaded, these guys had ended up carrying me out through the woods into backyard and long story short went in for X-rays the next day, and in fact it was. It showed that it was. It was fractured now over the next couple of days we were trying to get some reassurance as to whether or not, I should have a a surgery. be to try and. Determine if this was a stable or unstable fracture, and we were able to determine a week later after the inflammation was down that it was an unstable fracture needed to have needed to be set needed, have Eight screws and a plate. And so that surgery happened. Two days ago. I think everything went really really well, but I am now convalescing. In in bed, and it's been really a a bit of a torturous last. Six seven eight days Kinda On my back, trying to trying to take care of this thing. But you've been so helpful. As far as guiding me through this process, so thank you. Well Rip I'm just delighted to have you share your story with your. The audience the key. Were you have a fracture of the digital fibula? That Along with the Tibia makes up the ankle mortis on born on either side of. The rise on the Taylor's and. It was very nice to see that they absolutely brought back precisely as it should be. The anatomy of those those bones, even though eight schools in a metal plate. That, also on the other thing, you may have some excitement. You can join me when you go through the airport line The bills go off. Yeah, yeah, you're well. It's a little more picture of time. Skillful neglect, and this will take care of itself nicely. I shouldn't yeah. Yeah, thanks. So remember what. What routes Waldo Emmerson said. Mike All Times is a great time if one knows but what to do with it. While I'm trying to figure out what to do with this. I want get out and I WANNA I wanNA swim I want. I want to walk. I want to do something. So the last time that we had joined the podcast. Cove in nineteen, just hit It was back in March I. Believe you know we're now. April may June. We're now. It's three months later. Do you have any thoughts on kind of where we are right now with. With the corona virus will what is very apparent if you. Follow the television update every day is that? There are number of states in the east to really buckled down and played hardball. Social distancing staying at home handwashing. Getting Really Interesting, out governor Cuomo. Absolutely counter that message for day after day after day. And the the states there on East? Kept pretty under control on the other hand. Those? It opened opened early and relevant, more lax are never or never closed. It looks like we're paying the price I think next week will really tell the the virus. The virus doesn't listen to. to anybody the virus has its its own pace and what it's going to do. But there has been something that I'm particularly keen on because there's fits right into. The the lifestyle that we want ARC agency. Cardiovascular Disease Fall. And just to give you a little bit of background. This has to do with with nitric oxide and we may have talked about it. Somewhat last time, but I think it bears repeating because yeah, sometimes, the whole concept is not that easy for people to grasp the first time. And it was a number of actually a decade or two ago, maybe more. That was found out that earlier virus. Could be killed by nitric oxide, which is obviously a molecule of gas. And so at the present time there are two academic institutions spoke. The Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. and. Ohio State University in Columbus Ohio. Where they have. A. Setup a study where patients who come in with a coronavirus. Will be first exposed thirty minutes of inhaling nitric oxide. And that's repeated three times a day. They're also doing the same. With. With. The healthcare workers who will get thirty minutes of animation of nitric oxide when they arrived at work. And thirty minutes identification again when they arrived from today. And hopefully that. We are really begin to get some results from that I would think within the next three to four weeks. I'm going to try to. Stay close to the Internet to to see where that progressive because. Remember where the virus enters. Your system is not through your mouth. Through your nasal passages in your? Area and your Broncos, and so forth down into your lungs. And if you have to have as most people do a very rich supply. Of Endo Celia sales in your nose. And if those endothelial cells are able to manufacture nitric oxide. And as soon as your virus to enter you through your nose Wam into this. Wonderful population of? Cells that are putting out nitric oxide, which hopefully will diminish or kill off the virus. Now how now this a little tricky here because we've got a review. Now nitric oxide is. Is made by by Julius. Well. When we're younger. And actually into our senior years, but not as plentiful. Were younger. We'd make tremendous. Amounts of nitric oxide are endo CEO cells which are the delicate innermost lining of the artery. They're all over the body. Every blood vessel when you're young and these are so healthy. You ever hear of anybody at age eight having a heart attack. No, no. But. We do those autopsy studies on women and men in their late. Seventeen up to thirty four. Women that is the these persons who have died of action, the sides and suicides now. The disease early coronary artery disease is ubiquitous, not enough with their coronary events, but there it is already started. Now. We know that measurements that by the time you are aged fifty. Beautifully healthy. Your endo seal cells are only making fifty percent of what they made for you when you were age twenty five, but. By the time you're over eighty. You've lost over seventy percent of that. Endo's the production of nitric oxide. So with one simple change. We're able to goose up. That end to production of nitric oxide and at the same time. Begin to utilize an entirely different pathway, which is really just been discovered roughly the last decade, or so where we even our senior years can make clinic of nitric oxide. What's that one simple change? That wasn't simple change is. Chewing. Greens I'll tell you what the Greens are in a moment. Biting Got Table to chew simple for my heart patients I do this because. The Re, the very reason they have their heart disease. Because over the years they have so sufficiently trashed injured, compromised and turn their Endo theater system into a train wreck. They simply no longer have enough. Endo theater production of nitric oxide to protect themselves from making blockages and black however. The good news is this is not a malignancy. Once you can teach patients never again at shooter lips another morsel. That was going to further injure their food sales. Then the endothelial cells recovered. Makes enough nitric oxide, so we cannot only halt the progression. Also often. We can see elements of disease reversal. Now that's heart disease all right. Now let's. Get back to? How do we make that? Green leafy vegetable make more nitric oxide. When you choose a green leafy vegetables six times a day. Roughly the size of three quarters of your fish after it had strokes been boiled in water, five and a half to six minutes, so it's nice and tender. Then, you must The several drops of delicious Balsamic or writes senator why? Because it! Is the CDC acid into vinegar that restores. The nitric oxide synthase enzyme contained within the endothelial cells that is responsible for making nitric oxide. So. Now. The, second grade thing that happens when you tune the green is it restores capacity of your bone marrow. To once again, make plenty of Endo soon. progenitor cells. What do they do? The NFL early progenitor cells replace our senescence injured worn out and fuel cells. Now we come to the third thing, and this is the absolute key. Chewing a green leafy vegetable, you are shoeing a night trait. That night trait. Those nitrates are going to mix. The, facultative anaerobic bacteria that reside and decryption grew of your tell. Those bacteria are going to reduce the nitrates that you were chewing to. NITRITES. Now when you smiled the NITRITES, it is your own gastric acid. It further reduces the nitrites to more nitric oxide. Joe. Here you are literally from dawn to dusk. Could you remember it? You're going to Chile's green leafy vegetables along with their breakfast cereal again. That is a mid morning snack again with your lunch and sandwich. That's three mid afternoon for dinner time five, and of course. I adore on you. Have that evening Snack Kale? What are you doing? All Day long from dawn to dusk, you are absolutely replenishing your body with this amazing molecule of nitric oxide, the deficiency of which gave you this heart disease in the first place. Doesn't have any extra expense. There's no hideous side effects. So imagine it this way when your body. Therefore, it's now just loaded. With nitric oxide. When that virus tries to get into your nose. Yeah, Endo dealer selves of pouring out nitric oxide. I'm convinced that you're going to be much healthier and better resists because remember. It's one of the reasons that the younger people are so resistant. virus because I have my level of nitric oxide whereas you elderly. It's. Obviously it's much more diminished. Muster eating degrees now. What are the grains I'm talking about? We are. Charge ill George Beet Greens. Must you're getting char rains? Napa cabbage sprouts Broccoli Cauliflower, science parsley spinach in various and the top five are killed. Spinners alluvial. Be grins and be. Where does for your memory? I am. Good to see you so this. That's the perfect segue into the first question that we have from one of our listeners, and this is a gentleman named mark. He's from Birmingham. Birmingham England and his question is. Ripping Dr US Liston. Could you advise me I? Live in the UK and I have not had covid nineteen. Is it advisable to continue training and running marathons? I have read that distance runners. Immune systems are compromised albeit temporarily after pushing their bodies to the limit. Would it be? Would it be a more sensible strategy to run less miles in? Keep my immune system strong, or is this a myth? Yeah I think that. If you, really really cranking, there is There is some data on swimmers. Who? You may or may not know. Competitive! Swimmers! Really trained. Not once a day. Twice inert. And there. Tremendous workouts and they can get. Really a before taper at the end of the season they can. They can really be a little bit broken down. and. There is some data that they seem to catch colds or flu a little bit more frequently. In that particular format on I'm sure the same would be true if you were running in instead of running. For five miles a day, suppose this. Get carried away in the run, aging or twenty miles a day. Did might be possible that that would be a little bit hard on the immune system. But. I, think that I would I would would. W Don't don't stop exercising. Keep it up. That's. What I would also remind mark. Is that if you remember? From when we had doctor Dr be the gastroenterologist. On the podcast a couple of weeks ago, he he told us how seventy percent of our immune system resides in our gut, and the key is really. if you want to build up a a A. An immune system is like a fortress while make sure you're getting more than thirty different types poll plant based foods and a week. With all those different types of fiber. The. Fiber the fiber is is king. Yeah Yeah and I would I would tell telemark. Listen to your body if you're feeling like you know miles or beating you down. to a pulp, then maybe dial it back a little bit absolutely. Call over over training, right, yeah! All right here's here's another question it's. It's one that I think we get you know. All, the time. My eighteen year old son is interested in going strong, but extremely picky, and he's very worried about getting enough protein. How much protein should he consume each day to build muscle? He works out six times a week and was playing Lacrosse daily before covid nineteen, so he's very active. He eats roughly two thousand calories a day. He's five nine and weighs about one hundred and sixty pounds. plastic front myself and have been trying to convert him. Thank you. So. Yeah, there's not gonna be any protein deficiency an absolute classic myth. Actually a really blown away. There is so much protein in Graz. There is protein all these different. Levels. There is protein in a red yellow leaky. Vegetables There's protein potato soup, potatoes, white potatoes. It's really it's almost impossible to be a protein. Deficient as far as. Trying to measure out in grams, and we'll probably be somewhere around. Fifty Grams Moog more for men than women but. I wouldn't I wouldn't like to have you at the need by calculators. You're snowed. The this the spectrum is. GonNa. Give you plenty of. Of Accordion as a matter of fact, if you WANNA, be really convinced about this those to see. The movie that was recently produced by James Wilkes. Ah Game Changers. Take a look at the German guy by Bouillon whose lifting one thousand two hundred pounds. But Bass. Boat. Yeah, it's it's it's. It's a boogeyman. Don't need to worry about it. And just kind of drive this home, a little bit for for for this for this mother who's concerned about her son? You know one one piece of whole grain. Toast is seven grams of protein, one one third of a can of black beans about seven grams of protein one two ounce serving of of a whole grain pasta is about eight grams of protein. They now make a red lentil. Pasta it's got twenty grams of protein per two ounces. And if your son is one hundred and sixty pounds like my father said if he needs right around. Fifty to sixty grams of protein a day. He's GonNa. Meet that very easily. As long as he's consuming enough calories, not a problem. Yes. It's true.

Dr Liston. I have had a heart attack and had been following following your book, preventing him immersing heart disease for almost four years since the heart attack. My question is about the difference in your food groups. Doctrines Filton says not Avocados and nuts, but you seem to include them. Is Can you ask your father? Is it okay for me to add some portions of those two things back into my diet I'm not overweight. My cholesterol is nice now and low and and my blood pressure is fine. I'm sixty seven years old. It will take you so that is. Question! It really comes back to. What I we talked about earlier. For everybody agrees. With this disease has its inception. Its onset is beginning as when we progressively injured. The delicate innermost, lying of our artery called the endothelium. And so. What he has done successfully over the last sixty five years. Is So situationally trashed. Is endothelial production of nitric oxide at he didn't have enough. Nitric oxide left. For. Protecting developing heart blockages and sober. Now. When you have this business about not another Kado! Remember this. Nuts are loaded with saturated fat. What's what are the key fence? We WanNa give obviously the Trans fat right. Saturated Fats Nuts are loaded with saturated fats. I have no problem. With people who have not got heart disease. Adding nuts. providing doesn't go crazy, but it's if I ever let people. See Right now. We've got a winner vibrant people. It's okay. To have nuts. It's going to be three months. Walnuts on their cereal whether it will be. Nuts are so addicting. There will be the glove compartment. They'll be in the bathroom. The bedrooms, the hallway link. At suddenly, we've got all this saturated fat, which is the last thing I want for somebody who has an injured endothelium, and it's got a history of heart disease, and the same goes for Avacado now. What about seeds? I very supportive of even patients with heart disease having. Either Cheer sees a tablespoon or two or flaxseed meal. Attacked cable owner to on your cereal because. Manager. Additional Omega Three. But I think that this She, I have to go back. To look at the studies that we've had. And it is so gratifying it so exciting to see when every single one of the patients that adhere to our program. Halted their disease, the. Whether it was the first loop of eighteen or is the latter group of one hundred seventy seven patients all who had serious heart disease. Absolutely no recurrence. Over. Four years in patients who adhere to this halted, and then as Colin Campbell, said on the podcast a couple of weeks ago. He would even say treated their disease. Right. Right Yeah Okay so this next question. Is it actually really relates to leafy Greens in in a kind of a boomerang `way here so here's the question. And I have read that green leafy interfere with its effectiveness. I haven't heard Dr s Allston address, thyroid issues, and hopefully plant based eating. Do I have to limit or avoid any foods? Especially Leafy Greens because I'm amas medicine no. I'm not I will not limit. Throws because he's taking our auction. No. Nice and easy like it doctrinal system. What is your opinion on Statin medications if my numbers are optimal on Dr S, Allston Protocol without them. Well. The whole idea of a Senate is simply trying to reduce the cholesterol the way the statin drugs work. Is they interfere with the liver's production of cholesterol. There is an enzyme. Called the HMG, Koi Reduc days enzyme on the pathway, manufacturing cholesterol molecule, and what a stat and does is literally. Infused with that the lead statin manufacturers don't like it when I referred to that as poisoning, the enzyme because that's session in essence what it does, but the manufacturers say. Staten debits the enzyme okay. Now. The problem with statins that the some people just simply cannot tolerate. Any of the staten side, effects may get severe muscle cramps. They can't take it. It's injuring their liver. They can't take it. It's causing diabetic, the anti-gay or it's given the brain fog, so there are these serious suspects that have to be considered Alec Status found their place. In patients who have heart disease or eating the horrible western Diet. They've been able to show that. There's some benefit to go into crystal and helping these people on the other hand. How many statins do you think they're taking Okinawa rural China or Central Africa. Not. Any art disease noticed heads in other words. We found through our program. where? Every month I council. A group of fourteen sixteen patients with serious cardiovascular disease. And what we've found, is it. In that group of patients many by the time they arrived to see snug, already found out that they simply cannot take statin two months side effects. Netflix adhere to whole foods plant based attrition. Never, having another morsel of food cast their lips is going to endanger or hurt their endothelium. Then they literally are building. Endo. Fuel Fortress Yep, even if they have a few extra molecules of cholesterol, of course, things their bloodstream. they don't. Get any progression of their heart disease. Good that a lot So this next question is about Omega threes verse Omega Sixes and They WanNa know. Can we get enough? Omega threes, Anna. Mega, sixes from whole plant based foods and In particular. Do you recommend Dr well I think the KEA. Here to knows these these are essential fatty acids. We need both the mega. Mega Straight And ideally the ratio between the two. She'll be something like wonderful on three to one of. Six Mega three. But in this country. He's out of kilter. And our mega six mega seventeen or thirty one. And that's. Really a development of of disease. So you're never gonna be Short Omega Six. It's almost impossible so omnipresent. We, look a little bit more carefully, and. Really Rare Omega Three. Found in abundance are in green leafy vegetables, so actual green vegetables, and in flaxseed meal NGS's. really cover you nicely on the other hand you WanNa make sure about whether you're mega three as you can get an Omega check, you can get the blood test you can determine. Whether. You're Omega three is low. Medium or optimal. And you can always if you WANNA kick it up into, and you're not there. You can always take. Omega three algae I prefer that. Because? To. Limit the amount of So so. I think that's great, so so the body. The body is the reason that there's a competition between Omega six and a mega three for an enzyme. Go six of SATURATES and. There's swamping of Omega Six. May Burn up enough of this enzyme. The not be enough left to convert. The little to Alantic. In lower, the body's conversion can be compromised, but. He should be able to do all right. Getting plenty of the the the granny deductibles as well as the. Chew seasons like she'd meal right so greenlee fees, soybeans, walnuts, Chia seeds ground flax. Those are winners. So I, think that's a good segue to this question, which is just Dr Alston What supplements if any do you recommend your patients take? Take. The. V twelve. Okay B twelve. What what kind of dosage D like? Well. I got a little bit biased. In the DUMPSTERS BY A. Dan Jacobson who for years was a sort of. International Authority. On B twelve. WHO WORKED AT THE CLEVELAND CLINIC? Collie. and. Dan both convincingly me that probably persons over the age of sixty. Five hundred micrograms a day. And over the age of seventy. Kicked it up two thousand. And the reason he said is that we don't want anybody to be deficient twelve and there seems to be no downside. If you're taking a thousand because. What happens is you become more senior? is, your gastric acid, which is responsible for helping to absorb vitamin B twelve yeah, and as well as your intrinsic factor in your stomach, which is important in the absorption of beach will as we become more senior. Mike so many other things? Becomes a little bit the. Optimized, so we say so. A. Pretty much where? Fuel away I do about that. Okay and then anything else any anything else like C. or D. or anything like that iodine. No I don't know that I think. Mike Economic Campbell has pretty well. That In all of us. The body is an absolute wonderful symphony of reactions. That's going on all the time. As you sit there as I sit there, mommy sits they're. All these thousands of reaction's going on. It's a symphony. Now! What happens is when we take supplements. Of a Major Gen. Concern about interrupting the central. That'd be given example. You go to listen to a symphony. And you find out that you love French French Horns Nice. Calm. So. You Stare yourself well since I made. All that money on a certain transaction going to. Donate some money to the symphony. I want them to put three hundred French horns. Now they do that and Jesus the sound like crap. The symphony has been destroyed. Well, the only reason I'm using that example is if you suddenly take all this extra vitamin C.. and. He and all the other b-vitamins. There is there are these studies that are emerging. Where people are more susceptible to heart, disease and cancer. Who are taking multivitamins? You're interrupting the. Problem with you know you wanNA check their vitamin D she with their level. They WANNA. Bump it up close but Jessie. The jury is still out. On on supplement, so you want to be very careful about those right, so unless there's a known deficiency. You don't recommend anybody talking to the D. or something else like that, okay? Here's a question. Dr Vessels Ston. I got a question for you. Sir What's the easiest way to start this program I have tried over and over again and can't seem to stick with it. Well I think what you have to do is one. You get the education about this It's pretty easy about suppose that this is somebody who is trying to start. WHO has heart disease all right? and. If they understand because I think the reason that we're running about ninety percent compliance. In our in our seminar with patients that we asked to go plant base. And and we think that's pretty remarkable. Get Ninety percents compliance. Why does that happen because? These patients. If you just tell me you've got to change. Their Diet are getting election size and. Get adequate sleep. You've given them really nothing to really latch on onto. And this is why I. Spend in the similar. I'll spend close to our. Getting them to understand that the reason, they created their heart disease in the first place is because. Every time since they were child children. They have been. Entering the endothelial capacity to make nitric oxide once they get it into their head. Their loss of nitric oxide that gave him the disease. And when they suddenly understand that we are showing them away by avoiding foods, injure the endothelium and actually eating the foods that restored the endothelium. How can anybody? Come up to me. After an hour of this, and saying to me Dr Charleston that was just finishing. I'm so I've never heard that before I. Really now know how I created my heart disease, but I should tell you the lowest in Iowa having our thirty fifth wedding anniversary in two weeks and boy am I. GonNa, destroy some more endo. Fuel cells nonsense. Brain and ahead is going to that I. saw the other way that you get people to. Let them know that is absolutely going to be. A knockout taste to this food. Absolutely going to be delicious. And the way that we understand that is the manella chemical sense of same Philadelphia. Number of years ago did an interesting study where they took patients divided into three groups. One getting thirty four percents that difficult question died. Another go significantly down, but still up about twenty percents that then the third will where we are in our program about eleven percent fat. At the end of Ten weeks. One of those groups I completely lost their craving for fat. Right. Group at eleven percent why you are simply down regulating your brain receptor for sugar and fat when you do this and if you therefore. Simply, try to do this and you say well Dr Hanson was good all week. I really I'm GONNA reward myself in belly up to the trough on the weekend, well nonsense. You don't WanNa. Do that because if you do you never really fully down, regulate the fat receptor, you're constantly than in the state of misery in denial and you get recidivism. So. That is kind of a nice dancer to this gentleman's question. As far as he starts, but he always seems to basically fall off the wagon because he's probably not giving himself The opportunity to down regulate those receptors in his brain, right and totally lose those cravings. Perfect. So Doctrine Allston. Could you please explain why we should not use floride? thank you so much. Yeah. When we I remember. looseness podcast today we talked about. The whole business about. Making extra nitric oxide and way to do it with by eating green leafy vegetables. Remember what I said was. When you are chewing the green leafy vegetables. You're chewing a nitrate and that night. Mix. In your mouth with the Faculty of ANAEROBIC bacteria that reside in the crypts in of your tongue. And those bacterial will reduce the nitrate in your mouth tonight. Trite resident essential step. Nitrite when you swallow, it will be further reduced by your gastric acid to mourn I tomorrow, nitric oxide. But the caveat here is, you can destroy this wonderful sequence because you're taking antibiotics or if you've got fluoride. toothpastes. You destroy goes beneficial bacteria in your mouth, and you can't make the transition from nitrates nitrite at if you're taking antacids. You reduce the acidity in your stomach, so you cannot convert the nitrites more nitric oxide. And where where did you learn that about the fluoride and the antacids? For Nathan Bryan. Bryant all right I. Believe Nathan Bryant will be on the PODCAST. Next week. Okay, question from very concerned white. On, November, first thousand nineteen, my pretty young husband at a heart attack. We got your books and have been Hofu. Plant base no oil ever since. He's lost twenty pounds in his but he's not a heavy guy to begin with. Is doctor suggested adding some animal protein? The! Fish and also some fats like nuts and avocado. They are concerned about the medication causing problems. If he continues to lose more weight I was wondering. If you have any suggestions on this situation, thank you Dr Esam. Yeah, I think well first of all he has to understand. Why does he had a heart attack in the first place? Get Him to understand the importance of the Endo Theo so nitric oxide. Now. The weight loss interesting. Is. What we as we're not asking people. To, eat any food that is strange to them. There's the foods that they're eating. beaten all their life, but we are doing. We are asking them to relinquish. The clues that will injure their Endo Theorem, so we ask them to stop oil. Stop the animal protein and stop dairy. And Sugar Right. So. That's a lot of calories. Now what we have found is seems to work. Is the following. When they have their breakfast if they have a heaping bowl of old-fashioned quaker, oats plus raisins close. Of Bananas. Plus raspberries blueberries strawberries blackberries. Plus Two or three? Evening tablespoons of flax seed meal. That is absolutely delicious, healthy feast. And, they like it and they want to repeat it again either mid morning or mid afternoon or evening. Several times we find at that absolutely halts the somebody of calories in there and they're so safe. Doesn't oatmeal the. And I would encourage some trying to eat the. Dry Dry cereal because if you use oat milk, that's got a lot of calories. Will right right so that's just some some easy way around to get the extra calories. But I would totally discouraged with all due respect to the cardiologist recommending. Animal Protein I would totally disagree with that. That's GonNa Make Disease Worse Yeah. Well. Unfortunately, it sounds like these cardiologists. Just, they don't know if your work right on listen. Cardiologists are good guys. They WANNA see their patients succeed, but. There is such a deficit because in Medical Snyder in medical school northerner, their postgraduate training. Really ever had any training about the causation of the illness that they've been designated to treat. And this is why I was. Really feeling pretty proud excited to be. Five years ago I was asked to enjoy and the American College of Cardiology. They wanted me to be a part of their surge of there'a. Nutrition Committee and one of our task. is to try to educate cardiologists about the importance of base attrition. But you see that that real immediately that sets up A. Challenge because. You can't just suddenly. Decide my gosh. There's something to this stuff. It reverses heart disease I've seen the picture reversal of the arteries. It must be great. But the average cardiologists says no concept how to do this. You're not gonNA make it happen. In a twelve or fifteen officers without the spouse. And just. Say One The reason why we're product, proud of the ninety percent at your. We've getting with our program. If you're going to make a patient James Lifestyle you've gotTA. Show a patient respect. And the only way that I noticed show occasion. Respect is the my time here. Here's a I think we got two more questions for you here. And I'm starting to all the. All the listeners who have asked questions that we're not going to be able to get around to. A particular episode, no next. Time, yeah. I'm sixty three doctrinal. Ston and a bit Hofu plant base for six years. I have low fare in levels. My doctor told me to take iron tablets I don't want to take the supplement, but eating green leafy. Don't seem to be supplying affair and for me. Is this a common problem for Vegans? And what can I do about it? Much very uncommon. When, you think about Campbell looking at all these wonderful. County throughout China that were clan-based. Knowing knowing is when you're if you're if it's a male. WHO has low levels of certain, low, levels of iron. You want to be sure that he's not losing us. Usually where that's losing, the gastrointestinal tract. You have some erosion in your stomach Megan. Also that is very slowly bleeding or maybe somewhere else farther down gastrointestinal track that would be. That might be identified by a upper GI endoscopy with looked down with the to inspect your stomach on the upper session, and then, of course they can do the absolute. Reverse from below with colonoscopy book at the entire Cole in be sure that's flair as well but I. I really think it's. It's really tough to to declaim blamed the Diet on a little lower, but. I think we see sometimes in some of the some of the younger women that are high level athletes that train They're losing to eventual activity. That's losing most of the right exactly. And then sometimes I think it makes sense there All right, we're good I got one more question for you. Dr Allston. How do you answer critics especially cancer survivors. Who Don't want to believe that a whole foods plant based? Who Don't want to believe the whole plant based philosophy. They politely listened, but don't read the information, I, I try to pass a law. Avenue thoughts for this. FOR THAT WOMAN! That's. It's interesting. There as far as cancer goes. And a patient attrition. Orange did some some rather fascinating work with men with prostate. Cancer is example. where? Men with prostate cancer. were, placed on place, nutrition and WHAT THEY FOUND! Overtime. There is much less. Expression of the genetic. Accounts Eugene. And much more expression of the cancer suppressive. Up for the step further. If you have that prostate cancer growing a petri dish. Unnecessary you edge serum. From, somebody who is an omnivore eating? Usual Western, Diet. It will suppress can't that serum will suppress the cancer cells by seven percent however. If you do the same thing. Taking serum from somebody who's totally plan paste, it will suppress the cancer cells seventy percent. And I believe it. Dr, rigor in one of his -cations. Shows that the same thing to some degree with breast, cancer rice, or I don't really think that is a downside may not obviously may not be the sure especially with disease of advanced. Up there certainly. Is No downside. To eating hopefully, plant based nutrition for patients with cancer in their navy where he will significant upside. Yeah, yeah, well, you know. When I interviewed Colin a couple of weeks ago, he went as far as to say and I think he does in the China study as well that. Close, to eighty percent of these major cancers are lifestyle created. Right out of the Yeah Yeah Yup got the data from the counties and the counties in China that were getting a animal foods. Those with counties or eating. Matt based those striking difference. Yeah Yeah. So I think that wraps up all of our questions for today. Thank you for answering those so eloquently. A. I'm hoping to see in a couple of weeks obviously at the farm. And for whatever reason that doesn't happen I know one hundred percent. I will see you and Mommy at the Fire August fourteenth to the Sixteenth Oh. Clinton, at the. For our aunt online virtual plans stock event that is going to be a real a real doozy. But you know daddy happy father's Day to you you. You have the heart of a hero in your. Demise. In space.

HC360 #070 Whole Body Detox Options to Consider with Michelle & Scott E. Burgess

"Healthier three sixty today magic pinker and i. We talk about something. That's really important but let me lead into why we're talking about what we talked about. Which is important. We didn't audit of the sixty nine episodes that we had done. Previous number. seventy which is today and we realized that ten of those sixty nine episodes surrounded mentioned or directly discussed detoxification from the body when we did an audit in those podcast. We realized that there are options that are in there at the same time because we love feedback and we love to hear back from you. The best and brightest we heard from some friends. We also heard back from audience members where there were other options that we could look at explore. That did the same and more so. This episode of healthcare three sixty is specifically going to discuss detox options. The detox triangle. What is really happening to your body. Erectile dysfunction floride dopamine addiction in all the different things that lead to heavy metals in the blood or just non optimal health. So we're not for oh by the way and we also give a little bit of a snapshot next week episode which is going to blow you away in his real within happen next week so without further ado the magic megan or an i episode number seventy. Thank you for being here and thank you for being a part of the three six nations. Hey scott burgess one-two-three scott burgess one three two shovel three to one and three to one and three one now i. It's my one point on the thing in three two one good all right third time charm. Right okay everyone. Hey welcome back into the episode of healthcare three sixty we have the magic makers wish stop and wait until we get past the thing you got going on here. Welcome back episode healthcare three sixty. You have yours truly in the magic maker in the studio and this episode is it's pretty cool. It's a little different. You all know that we love comments. We love people bringing back. Good information. There's help you the best and brightest so we have a friend who contributes quite often. She is also a scientist so the information that she's bringing his real it's applicable and it's something that we can do something with she can actually take action on with that we went back and we didn't audit of all of our podcast episodes. We found out that ten out of the seventy are about detox in about heavy metals. In the blood. And what you need to do a lot of conversation around that this would be eleven eleven. Yeah that's right. They brought in the introduced a product to us. That really went through what it does how it works. It works in the need for to work. Let me start off with this one stat real quick. If i was to tell you that you were born with now in utero supposed to be majestic supposed to be utopian his supposed to be nothing in there right. But what if we told you that there's over two hundred toxins in cord blood before you even took you first breath on this planet now. Interestingly i wonder if that's today or sixty years ago well of course it's probably more today. Yeah but it's just interesting that years ago. There probably weren't that many toxins in cord blood which now than we have allergies and asthma at least childhood epidemics. That's just an interesting point to just throwing it out there for today's episode. We want to talk about really how to go about properly detoxing at the same time. Talk about the detox triangle. Some underlying conditions. That will help you identify quickly. If you need to take action or something you may need to bring up when you visit your doctor or their research on your end or the same time go research and your own we. Are you know where huge on research in your own your own homework following up and looking at the other side just following the medical community for what they say because they may not have been educated. You've seen episodes in this podcast where they specifically talk that they were not properly educated in nutrition as well as business and it just creates unfair dynamic when it comes to help people and at the same time one of the biggest complaints That most patients have which is what drives the high satisfaction is that patients are dissatisfied. Because they feel like no one's listening to them or paying attention to the needs so michelle fell. According to whol twenty five percent of illnesses are due to environmental toxins so does diseases include heart disease fatigue. Obesity depression diva anxiety. Infertility adhd stress. And so where does that environmental toxins come from. It's the life estate dr. Tom colloton that could go through. Our skin could be in our water. Could be in our foods that we eat. So that was a big Bulb weed killer right. Yes yes so. More than likely it's coming from the food source direct. And then eventually there's does run off when you sprinkling and whatever else or use it in our front yard it's water runoff to going back into the water source and my dad died from lymphoma. We always see this commercials and my dad had this beautiful garden in our backyard. We had a pool. We had colpon backyard. Was perfect in ahead. Plastic flamingos everywhere. It was just paradise. And i remember every spring. We would plant all the bulbs or you know. Do whatever and i always out in the yard working with my dad and he always use weed killer. He was like psycho weeds. And the fact that from the and then you see the commercials if you have foam newsweek. Hiller and he died at fifty nine so you know there's so much that he's missed in the last twelve years. That's why this really comes home. Because the scientists who brought this information was really sees that. There's things that she knows that she can help people with and when she worked on this product and brought this product to us. She pretty much said you know. This is an avenue that can help people. it's not just eating non. Gmo foods which really helps in using reverse osmosis water which really helps but also how do you detox. And that's always our thing is like we hear. Yeah detox detox. But how do you determine what detox. There's this company that are scientists friend is affiliated with and it's called a rupe and i think that is a fantastic name for business because they're not helping with symptoms there helping with the root of the problem and their biggest tagline is cure. The cause. what's the 'cause they have. A product called clean slate. And i'm just jumping the gun but with clean slate. They're using zeolite is a detox mineral and based on the information with the company if you go back to three hundred bc. And i don't know how they know this but somehow trump on that one to one when you say go back to three hundred bc. I know their science. And there's evidence of that no one. Was there the mind the but you have to do your own. Search your own homework. The surrounding all that because again no was no one's around the dinosaurs and supposedly left the planet asteroid hit we. No one knows. Birds are dinosaurs to no sure. But what the zeolite supposedly that mineral was used for the mayans water filtration to get rid of whatever they shouldn't have in our water back then. Basically what happens with zeolite. It helps to decrease the negative inflammation so inflammations important. It's the excess or the inflammation also cleans the cells and the other thing it does it removes toxins that are blocking those binding sites for nutrients so once to toxins are removed nutrients combined properly. I think that that's a real big part of it and for us. I want it to be something that we give a try research there. Yeah so. I talked to clayton the ceo in. He's agreed to send us some samples. We have some samples coming for clean slate with another product as well. But we're gonna focus there and clean slate thing. I want to mention real quick right before we came again We have this little magazine called. Usa try kids one of our daughters traffic on you all know. She's across country in a track runner in her. Original interest was in triathlon. Says boost your immunity. And i'm looking at that. And i'm kind of chuckling laughing internally because we don't need to boost your immunity at all and any level we just need to work as designed. So let's say boost your immunity even if this look at the media and you decipher the different way. It's eliciting that. Were already coming from deficit. Immunity anton optimized where it should be originally or this podcast for on a different topic. Point that we're going to mix in here but we needed to expand on what more we deleted the whole thing of redid. Which by the michelle's hair. We talked about The detox triangle common simple signs and symptoms that you can follow identify so one you can take action if you need to do something alternatively the same time if you need to go and have a real in depth discussion with your primary care. Physician there is also another aspect of it erectile dysfunction. Yeah yeah which might happy my thing to talk about Possibly you want to talk about that. And yeah sinus. And part of the original discussion that we came up with before was talking about not erectile dysfunction specifically sexual dysfunction as a whole between male and female camping out on the erectile dysfunction side of it i some of the simplest signs you can pay attention to as a male are you even in erection in this is according to what are scientists rented told us anywhere between four to six times a night. Okay on its own working. Okay and right no kidding. But it's really critical point because if you're not it's probably telling you that you have poor blood circulation you have a clog somewhere. And the way i evaluated is kin you drive a car with one quarter. Oil the answer's yes. We know that. But you're gonna hear dings and clemson the engines running smoothly and it's it's getting there but it's getting you there by the skin of teeth recently where i was having oil issues and i'm like i'm driving three hours away. I don't want anything to do with his vehicle. If there might be oil issues so i just had to step up back obstinately. You're supposed to be working at five quarts for the engine at least for the non-commercial car going to the detox trying to the body late in this back that if your oil your blood is craig related has a lot of totten's in john blood aways at sludgy. Yeah it's thick you also show signs and symptoms in your vision and your nasal canals. Well so that's what they call the detox triangle. So if you're identifying as a male now that you are achieving erection somewhere between four to six times per even right. oh that's one of our things. Oh no you can't get rid of those sounds vision wise as well and nasal because the hardware. The small little vessels that lead into those three areas are so small that if anything is creating or as to thick is not gonna flow in and out nor remember it's biden actually bringing good nutrients in so he can stay alive and thrive and stay well but at the same time it's also pooing or getting rid of the bad stuff at using up energy and that we're gonna go in more depth with next week year. Dr krauthammer where he talks about the pohan. Which isn't important. It's cellular well. we'll leave. I'll give you a little snapshot little snapshot. Believe me for suspense. That we had one of the foremost leaders in authority is in passing in the globe. He is over thirty years of research. The amazing job in talks about the microbiome and the great reset of the body in how structured it would give him too much way. Is that all the organisms that we need to survive in stay afloat in vertical and this planet. They're constantly doing their thing. The waste product it. What's supposed to be there or is it a chemical that a body doesn't recognize what's caused us to be sick more on that later. That was almost a little too much. We can get that we can edit that out again going into route to be up front with everyone right here. This is an affiliate site and we are going to try and sample it. If you feel that you would like to explore this by all means go right ahead. We do have an affiliate link that you can use. Please provide feedback and should be fantastic. Yeah we can get some collective data so the one thing about this product right now. It's presently dispatch over sixty countries which is huge. Yeah and they're doing amazing over the eu in over in asia an introduction now in tonight states. i've been fortunate enough to have the people around myself and healthy sixty six michelle who are brand this to our attention and let us know about it because we're always talking about detoxing in getting your body going answer. Yeah how do you do well. The other thing with this product that it does as well. What really interested me. When i hope everyone really taps into is going back to the structure for a second and we bounce out of that too quick but right tell dysfunction. You need to avoid to effective immediately. Okay or sexual dysfunction that matter as well. You need to avoid toothpaste with fluoride mouthwash at large. Now the way i structured my question was then what he use. I use a little bit of hydrogen peroxide going into the depth of this so erectile dysfunction medications how they work as they have a p five inhibitor. It allows the small vassal chair of the wall to relax allowing nitric oxide to go in free flowing in and now nitric oxide is the main enzyme that causes prepaid which is direction that lasts too long to the really serious condition but on the other hand of that freight does right recommendations which shouldn't eat any at all. If you need those medications you are a prime candidate for clean slate at least right now. The basil dilated that the united states introduces. What can you do to do that. Nationally on its own at the same time in combination with the supplement. Some couple of things l. arginine is one main nutrient supplement that you can take and then again snapshot into next week. Episode talks about the type of diet in the end. This all over collective data amal even of the cliffhanger how that die in combination with these different minerals and nutrients and how allows the body to free flow etc so the need proper supplementation. Removing those toxins either through toothpaste or mouthwash. I did ask the question. Its flora in the talks lawyer. A neuro toxin affects the body. More ways that we know it actually stopped research. Yeah it stops synapse of proper me response going back and forth and also just normal signal generation dopamine. We talk about welby. We you With dr krauthammer as well. That's a big. I mean that's addiction. So there is a podcast. She's so much information that i feel like. We were both very well educated. And there's just so much more information out there the dopamine side of it patrick. David i'm not afraid to refer people away from my podcast into another one. But they did a great job with dan lieberman and he talks about dopamine and is only one chemical dopamine. This is what marketing goes after they go. After the point addiction the politics the fight or flight response. Fear fear the high response all the going out and they're trying to target that to the more dopamine. You can release the more fight or flight. State that you bodies in and if you're in a constant state of consciousness meaning that your radar's always always in a state of anxiety in fair which is not good because in your drina glands who crazy off the charts and you can't do that going back to the nitric acid foods and the food. Yeah the celery. We'll both provide the length on health lines research yourselves. I don't wanna give it all away. Here g homer people should do their homework so anyways even mouthwash die told our friend that i use. I use a little bit hydrogen peroxide which is perfectly fine. Even have to be careful with that because nitric oxide actually starts in oral cavity mouth. That's where it begins killing good stuff in beds. Yeah so when you do you products as it's quick we don't have to use it as prescribed and we've been told to women kids sell much doesn't so much information going in there. Yeah i know so anyways going back to the nitric oxide within leads the microbiome and then also the detox triangle. So you can see where systemically. Oh that's happening. Bouncing back to the erectile dysfunction conversation what happens is everyone thinks that it's going to act in a silo or in a vacuum. I i'm gonna take these imagines and foam opposite effect that area. My body like you pelvis and that's not true. It affects us systemically holistically everywhere that you have. Little capillaries is going to be dilated. Not just in the groin in the groin. That's right so again. If you are having pelvis a lot on your heart in yeah nasal. It's something that you have looked up. envision issues that means however i've seen plenty of commercials during nfl football with our daughter's fun quick stories. If that's your pal dysfunction. Mom that's why we cut the cord originally because we'll watch an nfl. Football got cable ricky. Here's all they kept doing. Was years ago berchtold dysfunction in seattle with two people on top holding hands but now that the patents are probably all expiring and they can't make so much money off of it now. they're different ads different ads. Different companies coming out. I want to get back to this one point about the detox triangle distracting the penile gland and we talked to fumes to go but enlightenment or just third. I waking up. Your brain actually know how to gain information and work at the supposed to fluoride from the water from the toothpastes and from the mouth. Wash calcified Gland k now. It's not penile pinot pinot. Denial p. i n. e. a. l. banal pinot. It all depends on us. But so the pi and he l. right so the going which acts third eye or the actually awareness okay. It's a major part of the brain is not working optima or working at all. Okay now at the same time. Clean slate de calcified that gland completely. Meaning that you will have a better sense awareness. No more brain fog. No more lethargic behavior after you eat certain if you're eating the right way after certain foods your body is now starting to run optimally so again when you look at this slow. Usa kids boost your immunity. That's a bunch of crap because you shouldn't need to boost your immunity and there's some people whose immunities outta whack and boosted too much. I mean that's like all another yes. Yeah now the one thing. We will stress in it. We will talk about is. There is a chance that you can overdo it you detox. We don't want that to happen. Father recommendations give feedback bag. She homer do you research and that's really about it on that. Who should they go talk to about. Detox wentz too much detox. I mean into your body. I'm going to give a recommendation back to two functional doctors. Yeah we don't overdo it on your own personal detox. Our recommendation is you. Go back. And listen to dr chris. Spot cast which is number eighteen. He is a functional or whole listrik. Doctor who was interventional cardiologists. At first he went from an insurance based business to a cash based business if you set up consultation with him. I'm sure he could help you with that. Engaged on the right way and he might not be aware of this product that we were talking about. And that's the thing is do your research so when you go and talk to these doctors than you can be the educated patient and use your time. Well spent and ask the proper questions. Because honestly if i go to my pcp. And i mentioned these things. They might not be aware and the information i received from them might not be accurate when it comes to other options. So that's why sometimes we have to find a doctor who doesn't focus on one area but actually looks at different sides. Maybe the western eastern. You know whatever it is and we even had a conversation with your mom today and cheese. You know my doctor. This might actor that. Let me give everyone a quick snapshot. Really really hard into what you should do. If and this is just an example if your krone user crown like google the google chrome don't use it use internet explorer or by a fox. Whatever you're comfortable using them. Dr we use duct doug. Oh okay because you don't have to sign in you don't have to have an account and then you go incognito mode now when i asked him anything sketchy here but what we're trying to do. Chrome is known for pushing ads and pushing information that they want you to see so they get more money out of it. That's not what the goal is here. The goal is to find the information. So you can keep digging in your own hallmark. If you use a browser sign out of your account or don't have an account and going incognito mode and then we put in your search query putting certain so for example. Let's say you're diabetic in you. Wanna find out the relativity to how it affects the harsh who put diabetes and heart conditions and then put alternatives after that search queries act on three key words that are going to resonate the most. So diabetes heart condition or heart and alternatives and holistic. Things will come back up or whatever. Your three word phrase may be. You want to make sure that that's how you do it. So you can get information and keep redirecting yourself towards the answers that you're looking for then. He clarified then. You can bring those again as educated patient consumer santa k. Here's what i found. What do you know about this and you can have just like we like to do here. House three sixty. Here's information on the right side. Here's information on the left side and you make your decision on it. Absolutely all right. Weren't so again. Thank you for joining a fast direct if you do use clean slate go to the root brands dot com forward slash healthcare three sixty in full disclosure and in full transparency. It is an affiliate site and and they use a social sharing platform. I think it's one of those things just like you were talking with. Chrome is an you. Go to different websites. So much stuff is push push push and so they're going different avenues to get information out there because it's really hard to get through all the red tape and all the nonsense that big pharma might be paying for or whatever and so they're using social platform to get their information out there. Richard smart. Yeah so that's something you know that's different. I got my mba anima business years ago. That's how i see them kind of going in different avenues. So today's january tenth sunday and we haven't received the product closely slate as soon as we do. Hopefully it'll be in time for the next podcast will let you know when we started ourselves. And what the results are. But i heard the results are pretty immediate and this scientists who we are fortunate to be friends with is a bad ass. I mean she is amazing a mother. she's just very person who's wicked smart. She's worked for some of the largest pharmaceutical companies. That are out there. He is a mom on a mission. There's also some really big ticket items. That are on her plate to be able to talk about soon that will probably be an exclusive healthcare through sixty beyond the for that well i mean really really big stuff groundbreaking type of that. That's how i got next week next week. Next next time could be this healthcare three sixty magic maker you get myself stop urges. Thanks for being here. I think of three six nations next by nation. I want to send a special. Thank you to you for joining the magic maker. i for today's episode of healthcare. three sixty. hopefully.

You this on cast everything you need to know to live in adventures joyful and fulfilling life, my name is Ben greenfield enjoy the ride. Hey, folks, it's been greenfield. And you may have heard a couple of months ago podcast that I did that was almost like a sexual biohacking podcast. I talked with my friend and physician Dr Amy killin, we talked about platelet rich, plasma injections for men and women how something called the OSHA can improve the duration of female orgasms and how guys can orgasm for a longer period of time. What happens when you inject stem cells into a dude's unit which Amy actually did on me. We talked about things like vampire breast lifts and cosmetic face procedures with X OEMs all sorts of cool things and I'll link to that original podcast in the show notes for today's podcast, which you can get over at Ben greenfield, fitness dot com slash bio hack sex. That's been greenfield, fitness dot com slash bio hack. Sex. But I figured because there's so much more that we could talk about though, it didn't unpack that I would bring Amy back along with special gusts. That's right. You get a two for one on today's show. I've got world renowned sexual technique adviser. And the woman who's often called the dear Abby hot sex, Susan Bratton on the call as well. And Susan wrote this book called sexual soulmates. And this is what she does. She kind of has these outside the box approaches to sex, techniques and bedroom communication skills to help a lot of people with the with the intimacy peace and transforming sex into passionate sex. I even lower my voices, I say passionate sex. So that's my that's my my movie trailer announcer voice kicking. So first of all, Amy and Susan welcome to the show. Any welcome back to the show. Susan, welcome to the show for the first time as info. Boy. Ration- right. It's never a podcast about sex till somebody gets all soul trade with their NCA Shen. So anyways, I know that there's a lot of areas that we could kind of start off with here. But Susan you actually have what you call six essentials to connected sex six central's to connected sex. You have a whole book about this. But can you tell people a little bit about what these these six essentials are? And we have time to unpack them as this is a this podcast gets along with the tooth. Sometimes. Good. I'm glad yeah. What have done? So for about twelve years. I've been helping people they I publish hot sex techniques bedroom communication skills. Also, I teach people like advanced orgasm skills kind of sexual biohacking in a way. Like how I call myself in orgasmic not like how far out in the orgasmic field. Can I go and with my partner? And so then I report back from outer space and shine the light for people to follow me out into incredible pleasure. And over the years, and I got started doing this. Because an Amy knows Tim. My gorgeous husband, Tim, I remembered for ten years our sex life went to hell in a Handbasket. We were ended up being platonic friends. He was emotionally checked out of our marriage. We were like what do we need to do to get this back because I could I could get a new husband. But I would never. Do better. And I'd like to think he feels the same about me as a wife. So we ended up taking all these country lovemaking classes and going to Tony Robinson walking on fire and just doing like all this like twenty five thousand dollars worth of personal growth. And we learned techniques that helped us not only turn our sex life back on but take it to a new level. And it's gotten better ever since I've been with him now for twenty seven years child broad. Okay. So I I have to ask real quick. You did Tony Robbins. And what else did you say you? Oh, God, we did ecstatic love making which was tantric classes, we did orgasmic meditation back when Nick was just starting. We we've done a lot of different sex workshops human awareness institute level after level after level of that like we live in northern California. And so we're the nexus of where poly-amorous an open relationships and expanded orgasm meet personal development in the human growth movement. And so we had access to a lot of that is that. Okay. One more question. And by the way, Jamie. I'm fine. Yeah. If you wanna pipe into, but is that because because I haven't done any of that, you know, me and my wife have a good sexual relationship. And we've read some books probably very similar to yours with sexual techniques and ways to you know, for example, one of my favorite books on this topic is the multi orgasmic man, and I practice those techniques like the power draw some of the other tantric. Tactics that he teaches in that book. But the main thing that's kept me from going to any of these courses. Like, I think one that that I was very interested in for a while. It was called some like oh. Something along those lines like an orgasmic class for for calls is is it. Yeah. Is it weird or awkward to be there with your partner? Orgasm ING or engaged in sexual techniques in the presence of like an instructor other people in a room full of naked people. It is so fricking confrontational every single time. We would be driving to go to one of these weekend workshops, or whatever I would have I would have a meltdown like to the point where I'm actually though, I'm an energetic person. I hope annual Tessema super mellow person to like very grounded. I value at all not but ground, right? I not drama just excitement, and I would get out of the car and like have a meltdown at on the way to every single one. And that was when we realize that the kinds of experiences that you can have in these naked sex workshops with a room full of people are are incredibly profound. Found but who's gonna do it? Which is why I started are any personal life media to get to create workshops in a box. Okay. Who want to learn at home together? We're all about home study in the bedroom. That's way, more appealing to me right for ninety nine percent of people. They don't want to put themselves in such an edgy situation. I had so much to lose. I was winning. I've been in nudie bar before. It's kinda awkward. It's a lot of like Harry people with stuff swinging around and hitting you in the. Why? So to answer your question. What happened was this is how we started helping other couples through our online programs. So people have been emailing me for a dozen years. Hey, can I ask you a question? Sure. What your question and so through the anonymity of Email people have core their hearts heartfelt to me. And I've tested a bunch of stuff for the sake. Try this try this try this try this. And I've seen what works, and what doesn't what you can get your partner to do if you're the one that wants more, and you need to lead them to more. And then when my friend Ario Ford launched her soulmates book, she was like could you write the, you know, the like risque chapter for me of what you would say, it would take to turn your mate into your sexual soulmate instead of just your soul mate. And I was like great prompt, mama. I'll write that for you. And I thought okay, what over the last years have really been the the the an I like things that are. Are like super easy little hinges that swing big doors. Profoundly simple. But massively impactful shifts mindsets often things like that. And I came up with what is really the bomber six. If you knew these six things be thick thing that affects you and the pussycat could really have a great hot sex life. These with these are the blockers that no one told you when you heard them, you're like, oh, God, I could do that I want I want to hear what they are. But by the way that an attempt at so vaster from looney tunes. Can you do a better one for me with tash? Going downhill fast. Thank god. All right. So here's the number one and us when you'll get right away. But people struggle with it. So I have ways to do it that make it easy presence being president in the moment with your partner. That's what makes it passionate when you're playing off each other. But we get twisted up in our own underwear in bed. So that's one number two. It's setting the lover space. The context the environment is particularly important for women to surrender to their pleasure. So I teach people how to create the environment that is conducive to super hot sex number three. And this is what I think we should dive into a little bit later on in the in the conversation, if you'd like to 'cause I think it's probably the most profound thing, and that is something I call the sexual soulmate packed, and it's essentially an agreement that explodes passionate lovemaking because you're on the same page about feedback and understanding what you want, and there's some really clever little tricks to it that are very much bio. Jackie in away. Understanding your body. The next is polarity the masculine feminine. We end up platonic because women are strong men. These days were out in the world were calling the shots. So it's about how to have that masculine feminine connection in the bedroom. Even to the point where you can switch roles and it gets even hotter. And the next is number five is embodied sexuality. And I can I can give you more detail about it. But it's it it kind of dovetails with presence. But it's it's how to actually be more sensual together, and then the fifth or the sixth one is something I call Roddick play date, and I believe it is the key to fizzling monogamy. So those are the six, okay? That last one that that that's very interesting. The erotic play dates do you mean this concept of going out on a date and dressing up and and. Scheduling everything and doing a hotel stave. And if it's in your own city, or or home vacation things along those lines. It's nice to know what what it triggered for you in thinking. No, that's all way, too, hard and doesn't get defects fast enough. Okay. Do all that work to have sex. I just wanted to have hot sex. You know, one of my favorite raises is the couple of plays together stays together. Especially in the bedroom. And Arado play dates are a commitment to the two. And the reason it's never six you have to work your way up to it. You don't start there? Typically, if you haven't got if you haven't nailed the other five, but it's the ID that earth things, you can learn for example, my husband, Tim, and I had an expanded orgasm practice for fourteen years. Once sometimes if I'm lucky twice a week, we lay down in bed together. And he gives me what is the sensually genital massage a clitoral stroking massage that puts me into a essentially, it's a away to do a clitoral stroke that allows a woman to take that moment of climax. And that moment out like taffy. So that she stays in that peak climatic experience for it will go five seconds, then ten seconds than twenty than thirty than she learns how to stay in in a hold and sustain this insatiable of peak moment of climax while he or she it's you know, it can be any sex gender spectrum partner. That the giver is essentially taking the receiver the woman on this ride, and he or she's taking over the woman's nervous system and taking her up into this expanded state, and then giving her a little break because you have to toggle the sympathetic Paris of the sympathetic nervous system. And then taking her up again. Holding and then giving her a little break than taking up again that avoids clitoral fatigue, which is often a reason a woman is like a one and done orgasmic champion when women are infinitely orgasmic as our men, by the way. So we also teach techniques like that you're staying from montage Chia's book that we've perfected to another level separating Jackie Latian orgasm for men because there's two separate systems as well. So erotic played through things like learning to have an expanded orgasm practice together. If you lay your wife down and stroke her genitals once a week, and you take her on this ride. She is naturally going to want to be more sexual with you, and you're going to as her masculine sexual leader open her up to a level of orgasmic pleasure. Even imagined was possible. And brings you so close and so turned on for each other. And that's just one thing you could learn together as a couple. There are many many ways. As you can learn new skills together. And that's what I think keeps monogamy hot is. When you're beginning to get together. It's like feeling like a teenager again in bed because you're learning together, which is key to removing any of that kind of ago. Ick need to be right or do it, right? Or any of those things that kinda get in the way of being offensive. We present together and just being real interesting. I want to bring Amy and in a moment to talk about some of the technologies that can enhance this process and some of the procedures we can we can kind of use outside of the bedroom as well. But before that, I think a lot of guys would be interested in hearing just like a quick tip from you or a way that they can begin to delve into this idea of multi orgasm or or longer orgasms or the orgasm without jocularly on the men's side. Well, let's take both ways. And I'll give you the perfect segue to Amy's expertise and that is in. Gorge meant the way to both last longer amend 'cause one in four men have issues where they'd like to last longer they'd like to have more stamina and women would like to become more orgasmic, and in both cases, and as well as a lot of other. Let's just call it. Orgasmic pleasure skills. Come from your genitalia. Your your clitoral structure or the corpus Kabir knows him course, corpus bungee awesome. Which started out at the same exact thing. When when we were all we were all we all started as girls emails, and then some of the Scott hormonal bath that turned the clitoris into the penis what we have homologation genitalia. They're the same parts arranged in a different way. And what gets missed is slow steady. Deep arousal where you're actually in gorging the entire penile structure, the deep buried shaft as well as just the. Part that's sticking out of the body. The entire clitoral structure that the glands the shaft, the little arms the little legs of the clitoris that looks like a little starfish and one of the things that Amy does in her expertise is get that tissue to engorge really, well, which increases pleasure orgasmic intensity. It increases the ability to sustain an erection in both men and women, and it helps keep all that tissue. Really full of blood blood. Float is such a big key to orgasmic pleasure in going the distance over the years with your partner. Well, that's really fascinating. And you you explore a lot of this in your book or two people actually need to go. Take a ticket course like you mentioned that you do home courses you how does that exactly work? So one of my what of my courses is called expand her orgasm tonight. And it's twenty one or Roddick play dates for couples that teach you all of the things that you need to do to settle down and lock your nervous systems together in a con- joined trance state of orgasmic bliss, and it takes a wild for a couple of get that in trained together a few practice sessions. So we broke it down into things you could do our tonight we're gonna play the start stop game. And the next night. We're going to do this finding her spot game, you know, those kinds of things so you can learn together. So expand orgasm tonight is one. I also have a program called female liquid orgasm, which teaches women how to have got us. How to receive got us healing the Saggio. G-spot pleasure in and to understand all about female Jackie Latian because women Jackie late as well. As men, and they can have orgasms with it or not just like men men can have full body energy orgasms without Jackie Latian, or they can have orgasms with Jackie Latian women of the same way. And so we have a course teaches that we have of course, that teaches the stamina technique called multi orgasmic lover for men that teaches men how to become full body energy orgasmic men who attack late only when they won't too. So each one of these is kind of like a an experience in a box. If you will what do you mean, you say courses, that's something someone downloads or these packages sent to the house? Well, I have some that are packages sent to the house like my steamy sex. Ed, I don't mean to be talking about myself at you asked my steamy affects video collection is it could be ATV's or you can get digital video or both. And that's for couples to watch together. It starts with central massage than a Roddick orgasm. Mik massage then oral pleasure than lovemaking techniques. Like two hundred heart connected techniques that you can watch together. Like, let's plug in the Felicia secrets or the something like that today. Honey. And why don't you watch that in practice on me? The fun one. Yeah. Just take take take that CD out of the player before the kids come home to watch TV. Okay. Interesting. Now, you talked about blooding gorge mint to the clitoris and about some of the things that doc like Amy can do to enhance that Amy. Can you get into some of the procedures that woman would undergo or or some of the tools or technologies that women could use to actually do that? Yes. So there's several different options there options that the doctors would do for you. So things that I do like PRP injections like the OSHA where we actually inject the clitoris itself as well. As the part of the badge awhile. We also use ten thousand areas like have talked about the before where we can regenerate of power kind of your own body to heal itself regenerate itself. Ultimately, increasing blood flow there there also a number of different devices like radio frequency devices at lasers they can also be used by physicians to kind of increase the health of tissue in those areas to help improve blood flow in college and such like that. And then there's some other things like medications are topical compound creams that I use the patient sometimes that they can just apply the cream at home when the ready tick before they're gonna have sex, and it actually will cause increased blood flow there vase die later. So it increases blood flow. We call them scream creams, which I think is asked. But it increases blood flow to those areas that you get immediate blood flow. Sometimes you get increased sensation areas as well prior to having sex nitric oxide can health as well. So there's kind of a lot of different things that we use those a lot of stuff can. Talked a lot. I want to actually ask about details of a few of those things like the screen cream. What exactly is what's the active ingredient? Then there's all the different varieties out there. Some of them will have actually have like southern fill which is a generic Viagra or to Dallas which are used off label in women. So we don't have they're not used by the FDA prescribe it for men, but we've, but we know that it works increase blood flow. So there are topical applications where we can compound some of these things as well. As some of the other base die later that are get used for other purposes, generally open, flood vessels as will put several of those things together into cream and the woman can supply it, you know, before sex in it, and it helps to get the blood there. The problem with women as as Susan can attest is that. It's not always blood flow issue. That's that's part of it sometimes, but a lot of whether or not a woman is having a good experience is about what's going on in her head. What's going on with the relationship with going on with the laundry in the kids in the stress in all? All things. So it's not all about blood flow. But certainly blood flow is important amend. So we can do several thanks to improve that now that scream cream. That's something that would need to be put together by physician like a compound pharmacist, right? Yeah. Exactly. It would be physician, you know, someone specifically who does a lot of sexual health or someone who's does hormones and things like that. That is familiar with putting together compound cream's. Okay. Now, some of these procedures like the injections, for example. My wife did the stem cells stem cells to her clitoris, and I think it was just kind of around the Libya if I'm not mistaken, I think those are the two spots where she was injected. And then you, of course, as we talked about in detail in the last podcast when I was under sedation down there in Park City, Utah after Dr Harry's injected my whole body was stem cells and all the joints stem cells than you did the sexual cosmetic procedures now as. Far as what someone would expect when they come out of something like that. You know, male or female, do you actually get feedback in terms of things that people have found success combining that with you mentioned things like nitric oxide precursors, I know that there's this concept of using some of that stuff in conjunction with this gains wave therapy, which we'll get into a second. But are there any things that people can do to enhance that process without procedure after it's been done? I mean, the main things I tell for women, I usually hit him home with an intra-vaginal device. Call the intensity device, which is a it's kind of like a tens device for your vagina for your pelvic floor muscles. And so it's device that goes into the Jonah, and it's like tens of actually stimulates your pelvic floor muscles. So I have women used that home because if we have stronger healthier pelvic floor muscles, you can have stronger better orgasms. It's also helpful for things like your stress incontinence. When limit are when a leak a little bit of urine when they jump on trampolines, and you know, things like that. So I usually have them follow up with that using the device at home. And then again, I I make sure they're hormones balanced, estrogen progesterone testosterone you'll out of by the nickel hormones, and that's a whole other thing. But you gotta be healthy systemically in order to have good sex life. That's kind of important key as nitric oxide scream creams, the laser there's all kinds of things that we do. But you know, making sure that they are healthy in. General is part of it. And then of course, they have to work on their relationships in their stress and those things at home as well. No, Susan when you're putting together these type of packages and programs for people to have better orgasms or enhance their sexuality. Are you also kind of getting into things like supplements foods ways to increase nitric oxide, or even these types of technologies that Amy's referring to? Oh, yeah. Amy, and I have done a whole series of videos on the five causes in eight cures for rectal dysfunction, as an example, we collaborated on that. And we give that away for free. So I do as much about sex. I have a salad dressing for rectal function a recipe because people constantly trying to get my fans to eat more salad by realized that the reason they're not eating salad like I'm eating solid is because they're using bottle dressing. And so I gave them my basic vinaigrette dressing shaking in up in a bottle keeps refrigerator for two weeks dressing. So that they would be inclined to eat more salads because if you make your own dressing. It's not only healthy, it's delicious. So I'm constantly working on the everything from what supplements are good for you to these technologies like the ocean. The P shot gains weigh the femi- lifts, the, you know, all of those and I've done them all. Myself as well because I walk mytalk. And so a third of my stool, but I'm m advanced sexual techniques bedroom communication skills and sexual health and vitality like aim just said they go hand in hand. If you're not healthy, you're sexual tally is your health. They are inextricably entwined. So yeah, I do all of those things that I mostly give all that sexual health information away for free. And then the orgasm skills are the things that are kind of like the programs that people buy from me interesting. Yeah, I've said that before on a podcast that this whole concept that has been kind of floating around the internet of guys specifically having like giant steak dinners with holidays sauce and has many fats as possible a couple hours before sex or when they're on a date as their chosen meal is a pretty bad idea. Because all you do is get a bunch of blood redirected to the gut. To digest that meal, far better far better choice would be you get a lot of nitric oxide precursors like a Ruge and spinach and beets in the I call this like my power sex salad recipe carrots red onions a little bit of apple. And then like a ton of extra virgin olive oil you of that with a with a glass of red wine in a bunch of dark chocolate. And holy I mean, whether you're a builder getting ready to pose onstage or whether you're somebody getting ready to perform in the bedroom. That's a really potent way to enhance nitric oxide. I can only imagine what would happen. Yeah. Throw the throw the screen cream into that. So the the one that I get a lot of questions about to Amy is the the gains wave procedure. And I think a lot of people are under the potentially mistaken impression of this just involves maybe this is my fault to discriminate like this. You know, somebody getting a jackhammer take into their dick or a woman just getting like, you know, her vagina shocked with sound waves. Now is that exactly what this procedure is or how do you describe the the whole gains wave protocol? Yes. It's definitely not Jack ever. It does sound like it. If you're listening to it sounds like so gateway is it's a type of low intensity shock wave therapy. It's been around at that the technology's been around for for many years as then used for all different things, including increasing blood flow to the heart after patients who've had heart attacks, which is kind of interesting. There's several studies have shown that hard. Taxation. She do this shockwave therapy, which sends these sort of high intensity sound waves into the tissue at it, actually increases blood flow. So wherever you put it. That's what it does. So in post M I patient post hard type patients they've actually shown improvements in blood flow, which is pretty cool. We've also used it our medicine as used it for increasing blood flow to musculoskeletal taint joints, fasciitis things like that. But in the last ten years or so is when it's been setting to be used for for med for dysfunction as well as improving performance because we found that these same shock waves that we send into the tissue can increase blood flow in the penis. So that's what we're using. It's not so much the mechanical of sort of jackhammer part of it. It's the sound way that you don't see they're going into the tissue that are stimulating blood vessel formation. Nitric oxide formation in the end, the penis recruiting stem cells of the penis. Get kind of all these things happening in it results. In better, bud slow federal elections. The bomber Boehner who Bama boner. Fun. Little phrasing season. Okay. So can I get this question because a lot of people listening, and they're like me, they're they're any qu'ils one folks their home bio hackers, and I realized people cringe when I throw that word around. But it just kind of covers a good cover all statement for a lot of these these type of things we're talking about today. But people want to know, whether they can just like go out to a website or EBay, or Alibaba whatever and find one of these admittedly, expensive shockwave machines and just take them into their their home and do them that way. I mean is that something someone could potentially do like by one of these for their house and do this on their couch in the comfort of their own home? I I wouldn't recommend it. There are specific protocols that we use that they wanna have someone who knows what they're doing. Do it. It also predicts pensive there are sort of chief versions of the machines out there that I've I've had patients come to me as they I bought this cheap version of this machine. And I've been using it in it's not working. And there's probably a reason for that. You know, they're a few machines that are FDA approved or increasing blood flow in this manner in the US, and that's one of the machines that I use in mostly they're they're used by medical practices and such. So it's definitely better to have someone who knows what they're doing. Do. It's a pretty safe procedure. But you still wouldn't have someone knows what they're doing. Hey, I want to interrupt today's show to tell you about chocolate. I'm a fan of chocolate, and there is a website where you can get every form of chocolate known to man, I should say every form of healthy chocolate known to man, they've got Ganic stone ground ca cow the cashew butter pure vanilla bean dark chocolate bar from.

But aside from that clicky, click click by yourself some chocolate thrive market dot com slash greenfield gives you twenty five percent off. And then I wanna give you smoothie recipe. So this recipe was given to me by my friend, Roger drummer, who is a Chinese adapt genyk herb specialists, he's Chinese or Bala gist. He's a doctor of Chinese medicine, and what he has done is he's managed to take over twenty different Chinese adopted genyk herbs and package them in extremely. Concentrated form into this little packet of stuff called Tian Chee. And then he gave me this creamy milkshake recipe that makes this stuff taste absolutely mind, blowing what you do is you take about eight ounces of just regular full-fat coconut milk. And then you blend that with ice couple tablespoons, if you happen to have it of MCAT oil another option would be can use coconut cream either one, and then one packet of the Chia Tian, she won packed with this on she.

Get K I O N dot com. Try that Tian chice moody recipe. It's amazing. Okay. So so when you're going through your office, you know, when you buy a machine like this is there's some kind of training or something and go through. Yeah. I went out to Florida and trained with Dr Gaines when I first learned how to do it. And then I came back and then brought that training to my staff who does the procedures here. So it was a pretty full training at curriculum. We learned not just how the machine works. But the protocols all the things that you wanna do to support the the way that it's working to support the results going forward. Okay. Got it. Have you done this procedure to'sign just a delving into your your own personal sexual life? Not only have I done it. My husband's done it. And I I recommend for all my guys follow me to get gains waved with the p shot because I like the idea of the trans dermal the slightly damaging effect of the gains wave so that your body's repairing the tissue and making it better and putting your own PRP, and if you can afford, it stem cells, I mean, that's the criminal cram into that tissue. And then the third piece of which Amy I think you give away pumps to Ireland like a man does a series of penis pumping for as long as he's willing to do it. I like the my favorite pumps at the doctor. Joel Kaplan because they have this cylinder that I call the Walker, and it's a cylinder that lets you get both the scrotal tissue. Do your balls as well as your penis up in there? So after you've had your gains wave and your P shot or your cells, if you're lucky enough to do that then you pump a couple times a week. It's like building a muscle at draws all that fluid through the tissue. And it expands your T Nile dimension. And what I like about using the Walker the larger cylinder is that. You can get the part of your penis. That's buried inside like about half, your penile shaft is in signed you up under the pair neom in your abdominal area, and the when they do the gains wave they get in there, as you know, and they get kinda deep into the shop, which is awesome. It's the only thing I've seen that does that. And I love it. Because if you're if you're actually working with the whole structure that all that corpus cavernous them, which is that that erectile tissue fills with blood, which is what helps you get a hard on. And you're pumping. That then you are slowly enlarging your penis, you're making it more robust. It has more carrying capacity for blood, and it looks magnificent. And so I've got one when I did my games procedure. They gave me a fancy digital penis pump. Which I thought was the Cadillac of penis pumps. I hadn't heard of this Dr Joel Kaplan penis pump before, but the thing that that kind of bugged me about it was the day that I turned it on and tried to go hands free while working in in line balls. Got sucked into new is incredibly uncomfortable like standing there. Trying to yank my balls out of this penis pump. Now is that uncomfortable of men mentioned to you that when they use something like this Kaplan pump that they experienced that that same kind of sucking intense pressure sensation I had heard this specifically designed for it to be more comfortable for the testicles. It's designed to accommodate and get that paranoid area and get more of that buried shaft up into the tube. So no, that's the whole reason. Why you don't wanna use a regular small-sized pump to do that? You wanna get what I don't even know what the model number is everybody just called it. The lauper. Find it on Amazon a link to in the show notes along with everything talk about no link to your programs to hunt them down a minute. Just just go to Ben greenfield, fitness dot com slash bio hack sex and include that stuff, Amy do they make version of this for women to like some kind of something very similar to the pump for women. Actually, do they have an I think actually, I think Kaplan at Jill Kaplan's website has women's clitoral pumps. Also, I there's not as much data on his late for women as there is for men. We know we know that they're Pena's pumping men even by itself. Even if you don't do all these other things can be helpful and improving function as even size. So getting the blood in they're getting that blood to sort of get to all areas of the penis things areas that maybe it's not getting to the Austin all that is is really good for women. It's it's been studied in. I, you know, some people think it helps people don't. But it's it's not as as well. While studied in women, but they do make them by do make clitoral. Okay. Got it goes the vulva pump and dressing. It's called a. Stuff. Yeah. I got a Bubba pump clip pump and nipple bumps. Your house is probably like mine except except different. I get like protein powders and energy bar sent to my house. Try sometimes like some stuff sauna bulbs, you you get clitoris penis pumps. Well, I gotta terminal this stuff. It's the same exact thing you do. I do to journalism was a mystery vibe that has six independent Motors and an app, and I had to turn it over him. And I was like dude you do it to me. I mean, it was like so complex. I couldn't even figure out how to do it. Then God, I married an electrical engineer. Honestly, I don't like a lot of that complex stuff. I mean like in our bedroom. We've got and we have a wedge we have a vibrator we have a few other small things, but anything that requires a hand held device in a bluetooth connection on like, I'm out. That's. That's. We decided it's mystery for the master Batory Ashim Nado, you know, someone who like really wants to do that for a while and of lot of different ways. So there's a market for everything, you know. I mean, different people like different things, which is why I always like to try a lot of stop. And just talk about my experience, it just gives people more. What do I do what I really do to help people, and Amy you feel the same way when people come into you is we give people permission to be okay? To want more to want to live more boldly into their sexuality. Interesting. So when it comes to this this idea of sex, a big part of it is the decline in sexual performance that can sometimes occur with age and. Does I get a lot of questions about is by dental hormone replacement therapy? I'm curious if if either of you have a history of using that or prescribing it, and what your thoughts are about something like that. And one of the burning questions that I want to ask you that. I that especially get from a lot of people just might be one that you could answer. Amy is you know, if you do get on some kind of a bio identical kind of similar to like men who begin to supplement testosterone. Are you just kind of on it for the rest of your life? Yes. Think the question. So I do a lot of hormones. I do lot of is it legal harmless. I use only by Harman's. So which means I'm not giving any hormones that are not the same one that your body makes. And I get them to men and women and certainly with men we do Oesteroe, but sometimes younger men don't need testosterone they can make their own. So we can do other things like h c g close to help DeVos their own production to help, you know, health that way. But once you are on test Ostro, you are actually going to be creasing your own production production of testosterone at at the negative feedback loop. So when we give testosterone you don't make as much test Ostro, so in that regard. Yes, you want your on at your kind of on it unless you decide not to be and your levels will fall after you're not taking it. However, most men as we know after age forty fifty or so are going to have declined Casaus levels anticipates is not as important for sex, although it is important for sex. It's also important for so many other things in your body from memory to your lewd your motivation to. You're you know, cardiac muscle building. There's so many things that testosterone. Does that win? You lose it. It really affects how men feel and women to it. It's also important for women. So to me the benefits of replacing hormones, in this way, far outweigh the need to continue to be on the long-term. Is there is there a certain delivery mechanism that you use a cream versus injection, for example. I use everything. So it's patient specific on my us injections. I use compound creams I used helmets right insert pellets under the scan may stay there for four to six months just dissolve slowly for women. I use a trophies or things under the tongue. Doug, oh, sub lingual. So it really depends on what the patient is wanting with comfortable with you know, with what their goals are. But we can we can do all the types of four months. How often when you're doing these hormones? Do you have people come back and test to make sure their levels are staying balanced in. In the beginning when I'm I starting salon hormones. I'll have him come back usually about two or three months after I start the the dose, and I'll check not just testosterone levels for men. But we also check estrogen we check some of the binding hormones like s h Fiji. We also check the blood counts because when you take testosterone, your your blood counts are gonna go up. So your hemoglobin inadequate tend to go. They don't go to high that we check other things as well. What once someone is pretty stable on their regimen. It's usually about every six months said I'm checking in with them as long as I feel good. I think that's one of the dangers that a lot of men and women run into when they begin to like by some kind of progesterone cream off the internet or to Stockton replacement. From some fringe website is you have zero medical involvement in terms of testing. And obviously there are companies like wellness FX, or, you know, the Dutch test for hormones, which is a twenty four hour urine test, which which in my opinion is better than like a single snapshot blood panel for hormones, but ultimately. Yeah. Even though there there are ways that you could test and and look at. Vols yourself. I think we've got an epidemic of people just popping stuff willy nilly without realizing, you know, for example, testosterone supplementation done incorrectly can lead to much of over room today shin. Then you've got guys running around with too much estrogen, and man boobs and tricking balls. Yeah. There's a lot of things that people don't always realize testosterone can sometimes if you get too much of a can in effect your limits. Your cholesterol can decrease your HDL, which is kind of your good cholesterol, increase your blood count says there are certainly things that we we have to follow in these patients, Nick sure that safe for them. And I that's that's why I think it's important that you're doing at that you have someone who knows what they're doing. Who's watching you watching over you you're doing? Okay. You know, what I think happens with people? I've noticed this is an interesting an interesting thing that occurs is if you can't along times, it's the woman who says to her husband, you should go get your testosterone checked, she can tell he's kind of turning into a little old lady. Like he's like he's let like. Losing his vitality zest for life, generally. And that's what happens when you're Austin's counts go down, and you know, guys are often resistant to going to the doctor and getting things checked out and women are more often, the kind of the medic of the family, doctor mom is very common avatar. And what happens I think with some people is there's there's two things that happen one is they can't get their traditional allopathic doctor to give them testosterone or estrogen or whatever. Depending on women. What you want to protest onto Dawson? I take three personally I like the combination. They can't get it through their traditional healthcare system. They don't necessarily have the money to go to a functional medicine, doctor or hormone specialist or what have you? They don't feel empowered to do it or they get so depleted in their hormones that they lose the. Willpower to change it and they just dwindle away. I see that with people where they they literally don't have the gumption to six the problem anymore because they've left to go on too long. And if you could see the difference if you could take a person like that and put them on bio identical hormone, send them to Amy have do a work put them on a plan it would change their life. They would get that next fifty years full of joy and vitality invest and energy and cognitive function and muscle tone. And all of the things that we have is as young people that we lose overtime, and it seems to be exceleron ding with our toxic world. It seems to be really just bombing feeding our endocrine system on mercilessly. And it seems to be one of the things that's taking people down quickly now. So you're saying you should start on something like this, especially if you're a woman. Before menopause. Oh of. Yeah. Usually with women in ten years or so before menopause. We start to see hormonal changes where there's less progesterone in more estrogen than there used to having. So a lot of women will start getting some of the sort of moody, irritable and irregular periods and premenstrual kind of pain headaches, all kinds of things sleeplessness that can become a they can come on way before menopause that weekend. We could give a professor testosterone to help. And it certainly wants women go through menopause estrogen which is so important for everything and they'll be estrogen replacement at that point of yet. But even in the I ROY to we haven't talked about that's really important for all of the n women and problems for anyone if people in their twenties thirties fifties eighties, certainly is more common as you get older sister having Hypo IRA which is low thyroid of problems and something else that that is needs to be looked at kind of in a different way. I think it has been in the past. How does lower? Thyroid effect sexual performance. Well, low thyroid hypothyroidism affects affects all different areas of your body. So it it causes its up people at causes, depression or apathy can cause weight gain. It can cause constipation hair loss. An and also affect your other hormone. So it can affect your testosterone estrogen away those things are found up in your body. So, you know, even something as as small as getting the right hormone medication can actually end up affecting your sex drive and your your testosterone. And all the things that you don't think of as being thyroid related, but they can't be okay, got it. So in terms of the actual protocols that you have these six essential. Susan the presence the lover space. The soulmate packed Poletti. Embodied sexuality erotic play dates those six I apply listening. I'm taking notes the one that I wrote down that I want to ask you about. Because obviously, you know, people could could. Podcast hours. They could just go read the book. And actually, I I am definitely going to be reading this one. I haven't read it yet didn't have a chance to before the show, but the sexual soulmate Pat was one that was very interested in hearing a little more about. Yeah. First of all, I'm going to give you a link to y'all. It's just a sex. It's sexual packed ACT dot com. I have that carve that out of the book, and I made it a freebie because I really wanted people to have it. So let's start give me a minute to describe it to you. Okay. The the first thing I wanna talk about is that men and women are concerned about giving each other feedback in the bedroom because women are under the impression that if they tell a guy, and they've had this experience, they say, you know, oh, I don't like that. Or do this this way in the guy said, I know you don't have to tell me. Well, what women don't understand is that that's not the guy being afh ole? That's just testosterone men being testosterone forward women being estrogen driven have very different ways of doing things and testosterone makes guy very sure of himself. That's why he doesn't stop an ask for directions while you're begging him to on your lost on the highway. The stop thrown just is like full speed ahead. I know it I'm doing men are overconfident women are under confident in abroad generalization due to the hormonal effects of how we're driven by those hormones and so. To buy to short, circuit that whole system of worrying that you're going to upset your partner or worrying that they're gonna like snap at you. Because you try to tell them what you really needed. Here's what we explain. We say I'd really like an often I recommend that the woman does it can be the men the man to villages take it as the woman, I would really like to have super hot sex with you and one of the things that I know is that I'm actually just an animal, and I would love to be able to be I would love to be able to always like everything that you do to me. There are going to be some days, depending on my hormonal cycle where I want you to like ravage me, and, you know, hold my get my hair on the underneath the back of the nape of my neck and hold it tight while you kiss me hard, and there other days when I need you to hold me for a really long time. And just let me talk out some of my frustrations and read reconnect with you in whole beheld by you. Intil? I'm ready to go up the arousal ladder with you. Now known women don't talk like arouse, the ladder and stuff. I'm the expert. You've just got paraphrase at your own way. Right. But I'm just short cutting it for you with words that you get. So when you say to a lover, let's just say, it's it's a masculine feminine a man in a woman in this particular case, it can it works across the gender spectrum. She when she says, you know, sometimes kitty cat and sometimes a tiger. And if you understand that I have no control over my body, and what she wants in a given day much less a given moment, and you're willing to let me just give you feedback whenever I need to. So you can dial me in in the minute. And give me the incredible pleasure. I know you wanna give me I'd really love that open way of communicating and I have another request. If you're willing to do that for me. And of course, he's a yes to it because he's biologically driven to give her incredible pleasure. Because if he doesn't. She won't invite him back inside her velvety love cave. And so yes, he wants to do that women are under the mistaken. A the only reason man it kind of like is a is like aggressive in bed. And just a taker is that he's just ignorant to the larger possibility he meant to do it on purpose men are very heartfelt about their sexuality. They want to be winners in bed. And so if women asks him that and she's like sometimes pussycat sometimes tiger. Can we just go with whatever it isn't? He says. Yes, the next step is, okay. There's one thing I have to ask for and that is that I'd love to not have to use my manners in the bedroom with you. I'd like it to be because of an animal I'd like to have a little bit more animalistic sex with Hugh where I don't have to say could you please stroke, my clitoris a little bit lighter. Because every time I have to go out of my passionate connection with you. And I have to use my manners. I end up in my head and out of my body. And if I could just be like later, just bark out orders. And if you could do this for me, if you could just go thank you or got it or okay, babe. Your house this baby. And just knowledge it and make me feel good that I gave you the feedback. And believe me, this goes both ways I want you to do the same thing for me. And I don't want you use your manners. I wanna get really good at pleasure in. You would could we have this agreement because if I can just yell it out, and you can just yell it out and neither the personally how can you know, because every moment of every day. My body wants a little oh now I wanna tickle scratch scratch. It really hard. You know, how it is even with your back scratches? And so if you can do that. And when all tell you something when a guy when you make that agreement with a guy, and you give him the first piece of feedback into goes. Okay, baby. Like, really low. Okay, baby. Like that yet? God is so hot. I love this guy. First of all in our minds as women were like, he's trainable. This is also and the second thing is like he's got me. I feel like he can like really adjust to my need. I'm just gonna let more outs and that in the final culmination. Thank you for giving me the space to say the whole thing. I really appreciate it in the in the culminating of all what that actually does. Is it allows her to begin to think about what's really going to feel good to her in the next moment and have the confidence for perhaps the first time in her life to ask for what she need the no what is she actually wants? Because for a lot of women. They are so bound up the good girl syndrome just through cultural conditioning that they've never it's like, they don't even know what they want. This. Soulmate packed gives them the. Spacious nece to tune into their bodies and ask for what would feel good. And then he's thinking about how to touch her in the next moment to give her even more pleasure. And from there. It just goes off like like rockets in outer space that foundation creates a level of authenticity and trust between lovers that get you really good in bed together. Well, I'm taking notes I may have to actually listen to this one again with my wife, but I also wanna I wanna look into some of these programs that you do so all I'm gonna do some researchers. You're listening in and I'll be shirt linked to everything I find if you go a Ben greenfield finished dot com slash bio hack sex and also linked to Susan's book, which is probably going to be the next one. My my wife, and I go through some books together. And this would be on the we'll do we're going through through a few actually right now, we're just doing like a meditation manifestation one call. The master key. So maybe we'll turn things up a notch and go through central nights after that. Program on orgasmic meditation meditate together in inorganic state. That's the expand her orgasm tonight. It's at actually an orgasm and meditation or both the fada, but brain state now getting really nerdy, which I love because I can do with you guys. You're my nerdy friend. And I love that about you, both the fate of is so interesting like in the film, packed when you go out of your fate of state, which is your surrender pleasure as well. As meditative state that brainwave state, and when you use your manners you go into beta and beta as you're awake state. You're like rational mind wanna stay out of that thing during sex. You wanna stay in your trance state and the expand her orgasm tonight, not expanded orgasm stroking technique is a con joined orgasmic meditative trance state. You're both go into fada together and you ride her org. Adam together, it's really hot so hot. I love it. Wow. I know that that you have a patient soon. Amy, and I won't necessarily ask whether or not the patient has this condition, but I am curious about this. Because recently, there was something called national Perot knees awareness day. And I know that a lot of listeners may not really give crap about parolees or what it is. But it actually is a pretty combination. I wasn't aware of how big of a deal is. So I suspect more people have it than than we realize. Can you just give me a quick description of what that is? And how you would work with someone to go after a situation like that, Amy. Yeah. So Perot needs is it's it's a male s problem where you get some scarring in the penis in the just outside the corpus cover. No som. So the area that cyber tissue there becomes scarred. We don't really know why happens and has it's related to trauma. Sometimes it's auto immune or so let's just of happens. But basically, you get scarring that can be paying. Awful. And then as it progresses, you can have curving the penis usually towards the scar. And that can be also more painful, and you can also get red how this function it goes along with it. So it's paying scarring, it's curving and it goes away on its own. Sometimes announcers case skates worse and worse or stays around. That's one of these things that's really hard to treat because we don't really know what causes it. It's kind of a chronic thing. So we actually have several different things we can do for it. Now, one of them is the gains wave so the gains wave a series of treatments specifically over that plaque over that scar tissue can help break it up. And then we add that add things like the PRP, and the the stem cells to it, a penis pumping can be very, helpful helpful. And then there are other things like some some nutritional regimens with vitamin E and co Q ten other things like that. Can that can also help to do something they can get better over time. But until the last, you know, pretty recently, it's been people just kinda suffer. It have you know, their whole lives. It's very sad. A lot of my. Guys that follow me have Pironi than I have sent them to gains wave. I think that combination that Amy's talking about is the very best thing you can do to reverse that scarring that tissue damage. Okay. So the gains wave, and then you combine it with a lot of these things that it sounds like kind of Hanse it whether or not a guy has prone like some of these antioxidants nitric oxide precursors the pump things along those lines. So it's it's just very similar to protocol us like the Dell Bredesen's outlines in the end of Alzheimer's or some of things that people do for TI concussions like Dr dangle talks about in the concussion repair manual, a lot of the small-time modal like you just stack a whole bunch of stuff on at once. Yeah, that's true. But the shock wave therapy that gains wave because you're able to send those those sound waves directly into the scar tissue into the plaque that combination with PRP, and or stem cells seems to be even more effective than some of the other things just used systemically. Okay. It's the magic bullet. If there is one. Yeah. There is so much to explored as based on this quick our that we had to chat about all these little little ways to kind of kind of bile hack sex. And also just enhance orgasm pleasure that fate a meditative state tonic sex all of these things are so fascinating. You almost spend your whole life just basically studying the wonders of sex. I think it's absolutely no. So all this is very very fun. Search. That's what I tell people honestly it sound selfish, but people ought to cut through the clutter and confusion Toma by my book or go to my website, and I'll just cut through it all for it. Because this is the stuff I love to study. And it sounds like you kind of do the same for for sex. Susan so thanks for writing the book, and I will link to it in the show notes. And in the meantime, for those of you who want to do something like the gains wave protocol or go and see Amy her clinic for a little bit. Even more high end sexual harassment procedure or Kuzmic procedure. I will link to all of that information along with my previous podcast with Amy in the show notes and also linked to some of Susan's programs there, and even the penis pump in the clitoral pump. We talked about all those down and find them for you to if I can find those on Amazon or elsewhere. So thank you, Susan. And thank you Amy for coming on the show ensuring the stuff with us. It was a blast than I love doing stuff with Amy all the time. I'm so it was so. It's always it's always fun. If there's videos that you all have done together. Anything else that you alluded to during the show just just Email me links, and I'll put it on the show notes and for those you listening. It's going to be at Ben greenfield, finis dot com slash bio hack sex. That's been ruffled fitness dot com slash bio hack sex. So that being said, I'll let you both go. I got a busy day with patient. Susan, you probably have some multi Gaz Mik technique to go. Try husband or something sounds. That's how you live your life. So all of both Hugo and everybody else. Thank you for listening in.

#248: Elizabeth Shirley, Rph, CCN - The Nitric Oxide Connection to Health

"Culling only just it's time for Lime Ninja Radio Today they open to supporting the physiology but allow twenty two years as opposed to giving it is a fundamental molecule in health and when it's deficient all kinds of problems can crop up basically the body continental it is to human health which led her to where she is now I met Beth at Bob Miller's toxic loses its ability to communicate at one level so we think about the nervous system as one way the body communicates hormones is one way the body communicates but the or protocol is working right now when you take the symptom tracker questionnaire we give you a simple composite score for the month but we had symptoms daily or even weekly gives them too many data points there's so many ups and downs twists and turns that at some point they get lost and confused tuning in and we'd like to welcome all your new listeners out there welcome to lime Ninja radio you're now officially a lime Ninja this podcast is sponsored by the Lime Ninja Symptom tracker I'm so excited to tell you about our new lyme niches symptom tracker one of the things I hear over and over great thanks Roy and a big shout out to all you longtime lime Ninjas you're the reason we add more than half a million downloads Aurora and I really appreciate why nitric oxide is important to your health how nitric oxide is for more than just your heart and how to increase nitric oxide with night again whether it's talking to a patient in my office or consulting over the phone with the client is just how difficult it is to keep track of progress on their live journey recordings surely also welcome our show producer and the brains behind Lineman Andrew Radio Aurora hello and in this episode you will learn three main things and as you know lime disease is an international problem each week we have listeners join you from all over the world this past week we've had listeners tune in for join us every Thursday on I tunes for the latest episode of Lime Ninja Radio Hello I'm your host McKay Rupee and this is episode number two hundred and forty eight with Beth gas signallers nitric oxide is one of them are another critical communication factor and when there's not enough then all hell and sign up that's lime an NGO radio dot com slash tracker you'll be glad you did it to look beyond pharmaceuticals she became known as a pharmacist to go to when you don't want a prescription she discovered the science around nitric oxide and how accused director of the Berkeley Life Science Advisory Board she started her career as a pharmacist but when she saw the people who came to her not get better shoes inspired thirsty act body is fine is back function keep you healthy very excited to talk with you about nitrates and nitric oxide and I know you have a particular interest in prints out in Denver we exchange emails before that and she's a wealth of information and we share a passion for nitric oxide we both believe the Lime Ninja symptom tracker takes all the guesswork out of tracking symptoms with the simple monthly questionnaire once a month is the perfect interval deceive that new supplement Rona Spain to Annandale Virginia. Thanks for tell us a little bit about today's guest Beth Shirley best surely is the key breaks loose it's one of the reasons why if you're struggling I guarantee nitric oxide is distributed so that's why we want to talk about so this is one of the re boot McKee in which is a nitrite base loss inch so I I've been working in the nitric oxide space now for for about nine years just dive into all this technical stuff and we will we will explain this in ways that people can understand I promise we won't just totally levels on our lime journey path you need to get your nitric oxide in order whether it's being uncoupled whether should not being produced need to figure that out with your health breaks from Lima Ninja Radio Mackay it was so great to meet you in person pilot at Bob's conference and famous molecule but it's in the nutrition world where we live it's a little bit weird people tend to focus on other things how did you get interested in is to commission impairment to rectal dysfunction it's connected with everything and where did you discover it in be h four and how that affects the nitric oxide synthase enzyme and also the alternative pathway that some people we're not know about that's basically dietary or can be supplemented and how that helps regulate this whole system but before we and remember always have a plan b all right here is our interview with nitric oxide expert Beth Shirley connecting it with just about everything that goes wrong in our body from hormone imbalance to cardiovascular disease link there it walks you through the nine steps in the three phases that you will go through in recovering from lime so you won't be surprised two thousand and ten I was working with Nathan Bryan while we developed the neal forty laughing sure so I've been open to supporting the physiology for the last twenty two years as opposed to listener and that will go a long way to setting the stage where you can then recover speaking of that if you're interested in graphic represent the plans and the data you enter will not be lost as we roll out new features best of all it's free just head on over the line manager radio DOT COM slash tracker league out here while you how did you get interested in nitric oxide because it's kind of funny I mean it's been it's it's the non medication pharmacists never ending source of people that didn't want to go down that path presentation of our lime journey we've got it on our website it's free just go to lyman integrated dot com click on the button and you'll see download how adverse reactions because the body is trying its best to to function into key found and your back as pharmacists that's not what pharmacology that's not what modern medicine is all about a certified clinical nutritionist by trade. I was a pharmacist for twenty years and you go into pharmacy thinking you're going to be helping people and oxide will nitric oxide affects virtually every single physiological function in and back in Alex you would have talked about quote unquote conspiracy theories I I think that I haven't come all the way over to thinking it's a full blown conspiracy but it sure looks like one which the powers that be actually don't want us to be healthy don't want us to be able to think clearly giving them be healthy but I just noticed people kept coming back and they were sicker and sicker and on more drugs and we're drugs so in nineteen ninety seven out and how how come they don't see it the way you just described it then you've got a foot in both worlds which is really unusual the healthy so there's reasons why this inflammation goes crazy and we've got to address those reasons instead of just the processes from where I sit that such an obvious idea right and at same time it's it's it's very very who giving anti this and anti because whenever you stop processes in the body you're you're wanting to have oh isn't that the truth now there are lots of people I'm I'm agnostic then I'm open to that but I'm that is for sure that's for sure so then so people it's fun you tell the story about people keeping coming back to you getting their prescriptions I mean what were you doing in the morality show my goodness this is important the time well compounding pharmacists and Oh to if you didn't want to get on drugs or if you wanted to get off the drugs so I also rich I've seen just a lot of changes those are those who'd be horrible horrible trucks because I started learning to be a certified clinical nutritionist and got my certification in nineteen ninety seven and became the pharmacists to go very very similar story he was out in San Francisco and at that point legally they needed front men and women for the acupuncture so they needed should I do right so he was doing this for several months and this woman kept coming back I think she had some sort of inner ear problem and finally all I can say is is is money so if you think would go yes and if you support the antibiotics therapy with nitrate supplementation you will people coming back so we can make money if you want to cure her you need to do this treatment and that blue Dr Nature says mom but it was it in with the advent of the the presence in changing how people connect with their spirit my my teacher's name was Dr Hagi contentious Dr Nature said isn't there something else we can do this woman so she doesn't have to keep coming back and the right exactly those drugs don't care no they don't they don't and uh-huh busy on the counter since nineteen seventy five you know I've it it didn't start off this way the pathway one of the pathways that makes nitric oxide that it actually opens up like the blood brain barrier and it opens up the tight junctions in there be the permeability and helps restore the function of it and that's I think one of nitric oxides involved with everything and doctors to see the patient so the the patient would come in they see the doctor he'd ask a few questions and he'd run to the back room and ask the master acupuncturists what actually decrease the leaky gut you will decrease Zahn you learn the including so you can actually protect the tight junctions a that a lot of the thinking on nitric oxide and essentially nitrates are it part of the and I agree a hundred percent and I play when I attend a conference I play a game I call it nitric oxide Bingo and whatever that person we'll come up that show the relationship between the topics nitric oxide is got its finger in every function in the body and if refilled and not getting better and something tugging on your heart until the spirit saying there's gotta be a better way one of my acupuncture teachers told and how voices and we're we're all medications were were not thinking clearly editor at best state they help and do little harm but at worst they're they're they're just people yeah yeah and in the intestinal track by giving a nitrate supplementation with those antibiotics it's interesting to me folks if antibiotics work for you great if they stopped working for you stop taking them and try something else I don't have a point to prove yeah I really think it's that simple that pernicious well it's money and before with antibiotic therapy a there's a huge increase in leaky gut talking about I just Google on my phone or my computer nitric oxide and whatever they're talking about and inevitably twenty papers due to not be depressed it's involved with our ability to sleep properly it's involved with with resolving inflammation since being used then you start to get the idea okay this is why it has so much importance and you you mentioned earlier because the line world and people will stay there flag on each side of it and again on agnostic my mind is whatever I'm a clinician whatever word and if you're levels aren't appropriate so they can be too high and too low there's a sweet spot for sure and the sweet spot is going to change depending on whether you're actively buddy infection or not though if it's not in the sweet spot then you're gonna be in trouble in many ways and it's not simply a matter of attract punctures his eyes lit up and said Oh you want to cure her I thought I thought in this clinic what we're doing is trying to keep you're doing work with Dr Brian about the nitrite and nitrate you explain to folks but there's this whole separate pathway that really isn't thereby accident it's not something that's kind of in the background that we're taking advantage of it's really of not being able to perform sexually or or high blood pressure like you said it's in so it's involved with our ability to form memories it's involved with our ability signed and he got really curious about acupuncture that because he started seeing totally different results they weren't palliative right and I think that's that's what you're getting at the center of eating healthy so if we eat healthy we really give this nitrate nitrite nitric oxide pathway and well yes Kinda yes no because it does have some direct effects but primarily if you think of it more as a signal than as a subset tomake nitric oxide however this top way is affected by a myriad of factors it functions around fifteen percent there's another pathway the nitrate tonight try to an oak halfway that is supported through eating nitrate rich that Geez material needs and you talk about supplementing it too and that really can accelerate this path one is age by the time we're forty this NAS enzyme works around fifty percent of the time we're sixty it's involved with killing off viruses just like you said just goes on and on and on because it's a signaling molecule right right you know that's the about the little harm yeah well some of them have a little harm I do have patients on some summits but way of bringing it back to life because so many people's diets do the do the opposite so tell us a little bit about this pathway and whites circulate around twenty five percent get concentrated in the salivary glands we've got some good anaerobic bacteria in enthused enzyme pathway and this uses are turning to feed into this knauss enzyme systems the production of nitric oxide so let's let's pause there for a second because what you said is so in the acid environment of the stomach some of it is reduced further to nitric oxide the nitrate is also absorbed and heads towards tissues and we've got nitrate reduc taste is to reduce it further to nitric oxide any good clinician shouldn't of standing on your head waving chicken feathers works then stamina hidden with chicken feathers I agree but we're out where we accordionist city will actually change the nature of some of our enzyme to become nitrite Reduc tasters to increase grips over tongue that will reduce that nitrate and nitrite the nitrite goes to their stomachs very very important and so basic that it's it's easy to just skip over the what correct me if I'm wrong here but what what exactly that is 'cause usually nitric oxide we think of it as being formed by enzymes in the body there's certain enzymes in the body that will make nitric oxide in specific tissues war under specific conditions because even being hype poxy important well there's two main pathways on making nitric oxide and one is through the not the network oxide it goes along say pick up oxygen they carried to the cells they let go of the oxygen pick up carbon dioxide and then go back to the longs and and switch things up all the time so there's a state of the red blood cell that's naturally high pox but there's a tissue state we don't want that hypotheses you said is so when when a tissue becomes hot pox IQ or even kind of in the normal function of of the blood gas exchange right so red blood cells if you're not getting enough oxygen in your brain you're going to pass out if you don't have enough oxygen in your muscles are gonna be really sore so forth and so on and with all the other and start all over again so high politics simply means there's no oxygen or less oxygen available so this is happening within a red blood cell but there we go to down this pathway but it's it's it's so tough Aruba's stories bench four nitrate supplementation and this we absorbed the nitrates organs as well so high poxy as dangerous condition for tissue to be in because it means the cells are going to start dying so that it's Rachel you need oh so it's a surpassing dilate right to die later and it's doing that when in fact there's a regulatory function that you talked about that it helps improve the signal so this hot environment is is a dangerous condition and so- enzyme shift in response to this and the signaling anti anti because whenever you stop profits in the body your point the house mock you'll this nitric oxide gets produced more which essentially one of its major functions is to tell the blood vessels to expand and to bring in more blood which means bringing more oxygen his whole signaling functioning and to release oxygen red blood cell cannot even release the immune system goes away and they need immune system loves nitric oxide as a way to begin to get and can you talk a little bit about how that works and then how the nitrate supplementation promotes those functions. I wish however this a lot of times this gets turned on and the body has a hard time they will decrease the Ph increase the acidity of the tissue which will increase the the oxygen release and signals that but can you off the top of your head and it's not no it's not fair explain that a bit how the nitric oxide does that this little Geek question that I have for Beth because she's so knowledgeable will increase carbon dioxide will increase articles come from just an overactive won't increase the the production of Ano- through these reduc tastes enzymes video and I'll ass which is analysts three the induce people and I'll out is what the it's crazy so I know so it's one thing was familiar with is that Carbon Dioxide Kinda guides uh lime disease as down regulating the immune system I don't think we can and we usually talk about the innate immune system and the the turning it off and this is where all the oxidative stress said all these three to down regulate cadre within bacteria and viruses but also to create some oxidants to help kill them I uses to make the nitric oxide to clean up that to fundraise it's it's amazing it's all cross talk all the way this all works is so incredible and can you natural killer cells and things like that I'm sorry the Adaptive Immune System Boy I'm my head spinning but nitric oxides at bald with the macrophages is and and in killing things early on and it continued killing we kinda forget the innate immune system because we're so excited about you know all the address what nitric oxide is doing with the immune system because that's I think one of the things that gets dysregulates we talk about make increasing the superoxide peroxy nitrile had causing massive amounts of damage right time so then circulation or like the circulation in the brain you won't have enough nitric oxide to do all these other functions like the increasing that Mike was when there's too much of it that's when your joints swell up like crazy that's when you've got this migratory try pain you can have concussion likes I think you've mentioned before that nitric can help regulate this function how does that work nitrate and I try well actually help down regulate the einars so there's less oxygen running rampant this actually down regulate the neuronal loss the end up the`real KNAUSS US is septic shock right so somebody gets an infection of some sort and then the body says well we've got we've got to stop the infection and then the the NFL s Inter Koksijde Sensiti sends on have three main there are three main analyst air but when you're I nas your induced nitric oxide juror immune system nitric oxide is being over expressed edges and itchy and GM's and all the adaptive immunity we forget that in the background all the time is immune system selecting nation he's nitrates nitrites will down regulate the I nostri the over activated I not not not flament so studies have shown it takes three to four hundred milligrams of nitrate too there's neuronal and I'll ass which is analyst one there's induced civil anna laughs which is analyst to and then there's end kind of nitric oxide inflammation and signaling there it is so so critically important now you talk directive response to it that just just spirals out of control so this this whole idea of regulating the amount of inflammation so it's just the over active I know so that's so important and I you know we're we're talking about pathways turn just what the body needs to clean up the bacteria the virus the fungus of stress would be the I nas is activated and it's standard amount of nitrate in the product to effect changes what else do you have in there we have a little bit of just goes goes absolutely crazy and that's when somebody dies of the flu that's that's what's killing them it's not the virus that's taken over by that point it's the bodies over you affectively decreased blood pressure or increased exercise endurance and we have almost five hundred milligrams and and liver damage organ damage with with it with lime disease the classic example of the runaway. I know that's when it gets away from us that's when we start having damaged and thence and smaller and quote unquote smaller that's probably something that's also having with people with heart damage work for decreasing cardiovascular disease and increasing longevity is through the nitrate concentration of these yet to one that gets becomes a runaway train a downward cycle reinforcing cycle that gets too hot and these are all reactive oxygen species or reactive nitrogen species and in it and that's been shown to decrease cardiovascular disease so we've got a symptoms your your brain swelling when you have swelling inflammation pain heat in an area and a body that's that's one of the major things yes what superoxide superoxide increases the oxidative stress and all of these will increase oxidative stress inflammation damage to tissue to make these physiological changes the the the way the Mediterranean Diet and the Dash Diet League life professional and we have a product called Berkeley I professional and support and this is a nitrate based and the nitric oxide will actually complex superoxide to make peroxy nitrite about supplements can we talk about the company that you're consulting for sure on the executive director of the Scientific Advisory Board for Berkeley a plane means is the North End Zayn instead of producing nitric oxide it produces superoxide medical ball amendment which supports the formation of for through the MTA H F r died the Dash Diet actually has a thousand milligrams of nitrate her day means you already defectively nitric oxide deficient so by adding adding increase nitric oxide to this equation what's going on there and it was initially it's initially triggered to help killin infection but as Beth the same when it but see when when the nitric oxide complexes with the superoxide can make roxy nitrate effectively takes emphasis I haven't bothered to look through the papers but I'm sure it's the same dysfunction it's ended theologist function of the lymph so you get lip stagnation so you get swelling or four deficiency is the main clause of Nas Copley and whatnot and blocking an artery going somewhere that can be an endothelial dysfunction you can have a similar type blocking your lymph and you'd get swelling but you'd also get downright you are actually going to be Gaba Djing these free radicals and cleaning up some of this oxidative struck and protecting your in nitric oxide is the molecule that allows the flute for receptor to happen worth through there so it's this endothelial dysfunction about to talk about is a big deal and that's when we also get to this these alternate back up makes it a little bit sweeter for you Gordon is out there and get the oxygen back going again and things flowing and it's so very very important and that opens things up again it gets the blood flowing again and crates little gets the acidity brings to the Ph and so it's you get you could get the dysfunction in any of those organs so some of the lymph stagnation that we're seeing no doubt I mean I don't have halfway that she's talking about that so exciting is when you're providing nitrate and nitrite to these areas and because there's else but nitric oxide is really a whole nother signaling system that were just beginning to rapper system but endo just meets inside so anytime there's a vessel there's an endothelium so the lymph has an endothelium right your kidneys have end at the Olympics from the endocrine system hormones but nitric oxide in it's got a couple of cousins in there to some other gaseous signaling molecule handsome nitrates in this this product which is equal to a five ounces of Spinach or seven beats the brain needs oxygen and I know when when you're chronically ill you can't think well you know we talked about not being able to heal without sleep but without flow right without blood flow with we can't he'll either rainfall is such a massive problem into lime world it that and sleep this regulation or probably the two main you gotTa have Michael Circulation in the brain to be able to think you've got to have oxygen delivery you gotTa Have Glucose delivery it goes awry we think of signaling mostly from the the nervous system we think of signaling the nitric oxide out of circulation so it can't do all of these other processes that it needs to do in our body and so this us and I know that they're quite a few practitioners who listen to this if they're interested more with the Berkeley up for the the immune system can't respond the little immune cells cannot swim through your limp as efficiently when it's blocked off you think you have a block you know ninety percent I have an account and we sell to practitioners however there commune system because a lot of your immune response begins in the lymph there the lymph the lymphatic immune cells that migrate back and four up theory him as in-depth helium dysfunction is is how cardiovascular disease start to give out endothelial is obviously with the cardiovascular ace supplement it will make every single thing you are taking work better because without circulation and Microsoft might even be able to get away with lower doses because circulation is working in taking it where it needs to go insulin brain glucose into the cell without adequate nitric oxide you can't bring the glucose into the cell the brain needs

Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn Interview - How to Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease

"Hello and welcome to love Jonah. I'm Jonah Simone actress producer Vegan activist activist in your host on this podcast. We will cover health wellness weight-loss healing disease and so many more benefits of a plant based Diet in lifestyle. Be sure to check out the video versions of these interviews by going to Amazon prime and searching love Jonah or U2 by searching love Jonah. Thank you you so much and please enjoy. Hello and welcome back to love Jonah. Today I'm here with breath. Dr S Halston. The one the only we have ten questions today and one when bill this question tell us a little bit about yourself and your journey and becoming Vegan leader in the field. Also if you'd like to tell us about the books you've written or new projects you have coming up well first of all say thank NCUA pleasure to be with you and with your team and talk about Probably most of my emphasis might be on my research which is coronary artery disease. A leading killer of women men and Western civilization which the truth be known coronary artery. Disease is is nothing more than a toothless paper tiger that need never ever exist and if it does exist in need never ever progress this is a completely benign foodborne foodborne illness where I got my start was in I guess the late nineteen seventies early eighties. I was increasingly disillusioned that as is chairman of our breast cancer. Taskforce Cleveland Clinic for how many women I was doing breast surgery. I was doing absolutely nothing for the next unsuspecting affecting victim and this led to a bit of global research on my part and it was very striking to see that there were many cultures where breast cancer rates were thirty and forty times less frequent than the United States states for instance in Kenya and in rural Japan in the nineteen fifties breast cancer was very infrequently identified yet as soon as the Japanese women would migrate to the United States. The second and third generation still japanese-american. They still now had the same rate of breast cancer there Caucasian counterpart And even more striking perhaps was a cancer of the prostate in the entire nation of Japan in nineteen fifty eight. How many autopsy proven doing desk where they're from cancer of the prostate eighteen in the entire nation more nineteen seventy eight? They were up to one hundred thirty seven which still pales in comparison to the twenty. Eight thousand will die this year in this country so at about that juncture. I thought we we get more bang for the buck if if we could deal with the leading killer of women and men and Western civilization which is our disease coronary or your coronary artery heart heart disease and so the dream has worked out. Was it if you could get people to eat to save their hardt also say themselves in the common western cancers breast prostate colon and perhaps pancreatic. That's the background. What what are your thoughts on a low carb Paleo and kitone Diet Kito service versus Kito acidosis and what are the dangers of of each I think that those are some interesting questions. I think that you might start out looking at the epidemiology analogy of of heart disease. And it depends what your goals are if you want to slow the rate of Heart Disease Development The Mediterranean Diet is probably the second the worst of course is the typical western American Diet. Fill with dairy and meat and cheese and Bacon pork possible oil and it just absolutely ravages the Guardian and the life checking of our blood vessel which happens to be that delicate innermost lining of the artery the endothelium which manufacturers absolutely magic molecules of gas that nitric oxide that protects us all and nitric. Oxide has some absolutely marvelous functions keeps to sell your elements in our bloodstream flowing. I tough lawn rather than velcro world. number-two nitric oxide is the strongest blood vessel dilation the body but you climb stairs the arteries your heart gutters your legs. They died nitric oxide number three nitric oxide will protect the wall of your artery for me coming stiff thicker Acre inflame protects you from high blood pressure hypertension number four. This is absolutely key and adequate and safe amount of nitric oxide protects you from ever developing blockages replay. So literally everybody on the planet who has cardiovascular disease as their disease because they have so so sufficiently trashed and injured their endothelial production of nitric oxide. They don't have enough nitric oxide to protect themselves from having plaque development and heart disease form and what other foods that every time they pass your lips you injure the endothelium oil dairy need fish chicken and foul lots of sugar sugary drinks stevia maple syrup molasses and honey and when you have people eat without that since this is not a malignancy the endothelial cells recover and they start making more nitric oxide and so literally what you're doing with these patients with heart disease when you counsel them you you are empowering them as the locus of control to halt and reverse their disease. None of the drugs do this. None of the stent. I don't know the bypasses those are all stopgap patched jobs. That just don't treat the homeless. This is why somebody has their first and second sent third stand and doesn't treat the disease and so this is why we had such a result so as far as diets which have even more or made than the Mediterranean which has a number of low fat dairy and low fat but still the engine the endo feeling but not as bad as the western Diet but need to go fully. Holy into the I mean. When every time a an omnivore appeal person eats meat they're giving in their intestinal mic- micro biota their intestinal? Bacteria are such that when they metabolize. There's two important molecules that are found in animal foods carnitine unless it than they end up producing a vicious molecule called trimethyl astle amine oxide which injures the vessel so really a an invitation to meeting. Eating meat to space diet is an invitation toward hastening your vascular disease and and a lot of other diseases and then what would you recommend to a Dietitian who recommends this for athletes that way of eating for athletes. Roaster it's very interesting because just in about the last eight or ten years at athletes recognize that their recovery time quicker and their stamina is greater when they switched over. Oh for plant based nutrition. What are your thoughts on the blood type Diet? I don't really have money thoughts on the blood type Diet. I just don't really have have much to say about it until we really see the peer reviewed scientific literature that sustains what the author is stating and I think that I'm unaware that for instance when we're running about ninety percent is actually a ninety nine point four percent success rate going to close to four years in our patients who adhere to plant based nutrition. We're pretty proud and happy about that. Why is oil not the best for the body? Well again. It comes down to the foods that are going to injure the capacity of the endothelial. Nitric oxide no oil for instance. There's it is really there is not a is. It's probably processed food right. I mean you don't see bottles of olive oil growing on a tree right when you get olive oil when you get polyunsaturated oils. People like David Blanket Horn Lawrence Redel Road Route Claus in and Robert Robert Vogel. I'm really shown how devastating it can be to the vascular system. So that's why we're not too keen on oil. What I remember enforce overnight as well as there was an correct me if I'm wrong but there was A picture of the stomach and if you fill it up with oil the caloric value of filling these the stomach receptors out of all for those calories and then if you feel your body up with plant foods it's it's drastically lesson calories so and much nutrient much more nutrient dense as well for the oils are essentially avoid of of nugenix. You get a little bit of micro bit of vitamin. What are the benefits of eating low fat? Well I think that often people will mistakenly think that our the program is is pointed toward being low fat actually ends up being about eleven percent fat whereas most Americans are eating somewhere over thirty eight percent fat in the Diet and the reason that the level of fat and hopeful plant based nutrition is low all because if you eliminate the oils You and your eliminate dairy and your eliminate meet you are limiting really a lot of these high-fat products and so it's nothing that previously made. It ends up. That bin is a percent that seems aims to really be worth well when we simply are asking patients to avoid foods with that we know are going to harm them but as far as going down low no one sat and being healthy I think the lowest level with healthy people that on became aware of was I think during World War Two Japanese soldiers were at about three point five percent. Do you think a plant based Diet extends a person's life and quality of life and can it fully fully prevent and reverse heart disease. which is the number one killer in America? Correct there's no question that we Dr Orangish ourselves Robert Hostile and others have clearly shown and reported in the Peer Review Scientific Literature that patient who adhere and to hear correctly to whole foods plant based nutrition avoiding foods that are going to enter the end of the that heart disease not only can be halted but it It can be reversed and the reason that that I became so passionate about this In Eve after I retired even from surgery medicine and right now. We're really at a crucial time. Because what is pulling this nation into debtor's prison faster than anything you can imagine Is are the entitlements. Social Security Medicaid Medicare what is forty forty five percent of Medicare forty. Five percent of Medicare is cardiology. Now let's be clear. I have nothing but great admiration and respect. It was a care and compassion and fund of knowledge of my cardiovascular colleagues and they often those that are on their toes will say that. They're so sorry that during their medical school training and their postgraduate training in cardiology and then it never received any nutrition training. Because when you think about the fact that we have within medicines toolbox right now the most powerful tool I think that caregivers had why do I say that because not only. Can you absolutely eliminate the cardiovascular epidemic which is really taking this country to the poor house But at the same time that you're curing disease You're eliminating diabetes. You're eliminating hypertension you're eliminating strokes. Vascular dementia uh all sorts of colitis. Crohn's disease rheumatoid arthritis. Multiple Sclerosis lupus allergies asthma. Meal Disease It's it's just we've never had anything like this. Why is it so exciting because it was all respect? This is not farm again. I'm not talking about pills. Joe Expensive of lots of side effects. Nothing can be as powerful as is so safe. It's prompt it's powerful and enduring and guess what there's no added expense. Can they get better than that. I know why are more people doing this. Why isn't the world planned base base? Well a lot of the world is yeah. That's true. That's true America. I should say I mean what we have done and Europe has done. We've created a billion dollar health industry around a disease that doesn't even exist in half the planet right now is unconscionable how the health industry industry is really garnering and all the the wealth of the nation. It should not be in the health industry. It ought to be in so many other things in education and healing the grid bringing up rail system and then there's so many other ways that we we can spend money. Illness doesn't have to exist good powerful. What are your thoughts on juices? You talk talk about oil not being the best because it's refine process concentrated fat but what about a concentration of fruit sugar from an organic cold. I think that's terrible. I I think thank you WanNa have an apple and eat an apple. You wanted to eat an orange eat an orange but you see when you're eating the whole fruit. The photos is bound to fiber. The absorption is safe and slow. You live it up into juice. You separate the food. Toasts from the fiber for the absorption is like a rocket going off in your stomach engines. You'll never case protein and injure the endothelial so so That kind of sugar is not something we want you know. What are your thoughts on coffee and teas and the caffeine in them are they toxic to the body and if so why Michael Gregor has ended ended? Team with. Caffeine is is okay. I think it's fun. I'm a little bit nervous about coffee with Caffeine because there are several studies that show that indeed. You can cause those he'll dysfunction and remember what I've been saying all along in this interview. It all comes down to doing what we can to heal this dysfunctional Indo. We start injuring when we're kids two three four and five of the things that we're eating that we keep eating and it's interesting if you do. You do. Autopsy Studies of Young Women and men between the age of seventeen and thirty four who've live died of accidents homicides and suicide. You look at their arteries disease ubiquitous. NOT ENOUGH FOR THEIR CARDIAC CARDIAC events yet but there you are. You graduated from High School. You get a diploma and also you get to foundation for heart disease which is probably not GonNa hit you until with a cardiac the echo vent until you're in your late forties fifties sixties or beyond. So we should start preparing now for too late absolutely well. Because you see your what you're doing is you're not only you're saving your heart but you're eliminating chronic illness. I mean as as you mentioned US early of people live longer. Yes I think people will live longer because in the absence of these but you but if you can't live longer the average life expectancy I just see maybe eighty seven to ninety three but those are good years there not spend wheelchair there not spent in a care facility because of dementia. I mean that's the way you That's the way you wanna live real. Look at the Japanese the Okinawa's here. We have the longest live people on the planet. More people there lived to the age of one hundred anywhere else. Why because they're all they're they're eating well and they have wonderful family relationships yes And they have a way of life that they're not sitting down and looking at a computer all day they're out working and that's key as well. What are your thoughts? GMO's and pesticides the little bit that. I'm aware a bit I'm on Tuesday through the asked about GMO's Mos- because it would have been. I think so nice to had a long range study on. GMO's before just sort of forcing them on the public. I think Europe has been very resistant to having that happen and I sort of have to respect that and I hope we're not the experiment over. We're here so I'm all nervous about that. Pesticides Geno pesticides have been around for so long and you think by and now we get our arms around it and understand what was going on. But I'm not sure that that they're The I'm not sure that I can say that there that obviously I want you to wash off your. I mostly eat organic before you eat. Organic organic is certainly preferred way to to go but for people who who can't afford organic and their wash their food of I. I don't think that I can say that that's going to be harmful and award. Yes there is. What are your thoughts on? The sweeteners found in gum. and Diet Sodas in the chemical no you don't you don't ever want that stuff and you know a false sweeteners. People foot put fall sweaters coffee. Why do they even want the sweeteners? Because they're tomato when you don't want Because when you go play Bass but is a challenge for some people is when you do go clam base remember your. Your fat percentage is going down from thirty three thirty four percent down to ten or eleven and the Manila Chemical Sensors Center in Philadelphia. As shown us that if they compare three different groups of persons persons who are decreasing their fat in the Diet. Let's as as one of the typical American Diet thirty four percent twenty percent. Another down at eleven percent. I said one of those groups at the end of twelve weeks is completely lost their craving for fat which won the won eleven percent because because we all have a fat receptor and sugar receptor. And if you're trying to down regulate this is why we always start out culture. He's a whole thing about away. Why because because if every weekend you decide you're going to belly up to the trough and say I'm GonNa reward myself because I was so good all week? Then the fat receptor never gets a chance to to down regulate and you end up with his cousin the no sense of denial and craving and then you have recidivism and failure. It's good advice ace. What are your thoughts on treating high triglycerides and Hashi motos thyroiditis with the plant? Based Diet are carbs from fruit or any kind of fruit harmful for either one either one of those. I don't know how much you know about both it though I don't think they can. I'll I'll answer on Hashimoto's I think that's something that has to be studied further. The first question was on on treating high triglycerides bless rights. y'All high triglycerides. I think we really have to be careful of The simple carbohydrates the producers. We talked talked about apple juice and orange shoes We'll just like alcohol to send triglycerides through through the roof of you've got to be very careful Stevia and a guy day and and Any excess maple syrup molasses honey especially especially dried food dates. Okay then raisins in excess. Those will away track but any types of fruit like watermelon or like the sweeter fruits that are not drive. You know what you would. I often will suggest me to the patients who are struggling a little bit with that is really I play hard ball for about two weeks and then check your triglycerides see and then if you just made it a good a difference and you can be back the watermelon or something you really liked and you don't think it's going to overwhelm me. Daddy's the high trek was it got to protect them. Make them live longer. Okay final bonus this question. Are you currently taking patients or are you fully committed into your research and writing book. No I I totally have seen patients because the you know the writing the writing books and the research is something you do in your spare time but I. I've always had a strong feeling that unless unless you are regularly seeing patients as a physician you've lost such a dynamic Element of what is going to keep you learning. And we learned from patients they teach us and that's part of the world that I absolutely cherish families. I'm GonNa Send My dad to a and come and join them and bother you. I'm doing this because I've looked up to this human being in this beautiful soul for so long and and he's changing the world and God bless you for changing the world and having a voice for doing that and in protecting our earth and protecting animals and protecting acting our loved ones with the information that you and Dr Campbell have have researched for us so it can be readily available for the human population. I just enough well thank you. They're they're right upstairs from here. We're speaking there now. Some seven or eight hundred healthcare workers physicians nurses Dietitians nutritionists who we really are fortunate. Enough to have developed developed an interest in this because for this really to to make it a very of become effective to change the health of the nation.

"Good Morning America this is the cats roundtable truncates potatoes here Sunday morning. The virus progress well with us, this morning is a good friend Dr. Hellos from Southampton. New York and he keeps us a buoyed and let us know what's really going on Good Morning Dr me. Hello. How are you this morning? Good Morning John Good Morning Cats roundtable audio. Give us an update what's going on with the various Vaccines that may be available soon or and various treatments that have been updated. Well in the last six months then tremendous progress that we've been seeing around the world and it's not just in the US. Worldwide people are working on different types of antivirals and find different things and things are getting better. We've learned a lot about. Ventilators and the good and bad and we've learned that high flow nasal oxygen is a better way of doing it. They've learned about the gas nitric oxide, which is something that's inhaled and actually helps to clean the long something that president trump was trying to mention. It actually exists where they're using nitric oxide in the oxygen, and now they're testing and out with high flow to help kill. Some of the virus, which is another exciting thing when people aren't high flocks and they can move around and they get less clots, they've learned about pruning, which is putting people face down in the survival rates are better. So we're learning about that. We've got a medicine called odd again, which is a flu drug use in Japan, the Russian Ministry of Health India already approved it in Turkey they're. Using both arrogant and hydroxy chloroquine immediately when people get diagnosed and their death rate has plummeted. So Roxie Oregon actually does work it works if you take it the first three or four days just like with the flu and Tamiflu of you don't take it. The first three days doesn't work. The same thing is what the studies and one of the people at Yale Dr. Issue. Really. Looked at the study said, you know if you're giving people already two weeks and it doesn't work. But if you take it the first three or four days, it does work lying about the vaccines. The Russians already the started using vaccine. Last time I mentioned it was in sync with the when it put sputnik, which is a small basketball to tennis and they said, we've got our first satellite and interestingly they're calling the vaccine put make five. It's SORTA RUB it in the face of the world that they approved the first but that's because we have so many. Trial or in this country, nobody would there to announce that we have something ready because they worry about the litigation and lawsuits and malpractice and the pharmaceutical companies. That's why we pay so much per and per medicine because of the high seas of the trial lawyers and the research and development that we have to do in this country, the Pfizer vaccine. Looking and. That's why the government here or pre-ordered hundred million doses, and in the UK They preordered ninety million doses of vaccine, and then the forty five people that initially tested on they developed real strong antibody response to the cove nineteen, and now they're test on thirty thousand people. So it is on an accelerated past because of a government has something a little operation, warp speed and. Not, only do we have the vaccine, but they even got corning glass company to make all the little vials which are already needles syringes that we're gonNA come out of this stronger 'cause our economy's just waiting like rubber band snap back, and we have all these wonderful things including ready made antibodies from regeneration that they've been hinting about. Those might be ready actually in the next few. Weeks hopefully by thanksgiving where you can go and have ready made antibodies infused to give you some protection until we get the vaccines and the antivirals. So all these things are very hopeful that we will be You know getting this pandemic under control because throughout history, they usually last sixteen to eighteen months. So we're probably going to be out of this by next April and May one way or another. Because these viruses usually burn out and attenuate over time so they don't kill the host, the hotel human, but we'll have all these different things in our Armenteros them and we're going to be a lot stronger country and within a really learn about supply chain and things will be really made in the US again that sounds wonderful news is this the first time? You I? Mean you've been a doctor for fifty sixty Is this the first time thirty three. Thirty three. Younger than I thought. it's just the first time you saw. A problem like this tackle the way it is have at warp speed. No. Absolutely I, mean in old from the AIDS epidemic. Dr. Ouchi, been in charge for thirty five years. We still don't have an AIDS vaccine. So you know I think the fact that there are all these vaccines. Go and that the Russians already are administrated I think is absolutely amazing the way things are happening, and also now we're getting caught up with the P P. we're making it here the mass, the gallon. Then, we're really. Getting prepared as a country for future. This is you know you can't blame anyone obviously, you can't blame somebody for for something that happens once every hundred years and fortunately you know they shut down the borders quickly and Otherwise we would have had over half a million people that. So I think that the government you know hindsight's twenty twenty you had you know people people have to realize that nobody could have done any any better any faster I think they bought a lot of resources. This is not about politics. This is about saving lives and I think all all stops will pull down you see. Twenty CEO's of all the major healthcare companies altogether there and told you need to do this and it. It's happening and we're seeing a tremendous progress and thank God. The death rate is is dropping in the United States and We still have to be careful. We still have to amass and social distance and and do innovative things and put you VC air scrubber than our central air and wash hands and and be respectful and try not to get other people fake and But we will come out of this a stronger than ever I think and the government has done amazing job just some outside and people can criticise but the reality is it's really been a warp speed progress. Dr Peter Me Hello Thank you for calling into Sunday morning and thank you for the update and it will catch up with you again next week. Thank you and God bless America in this too shall pass. Thank you. This is the cash roundtable. We'll be right back.

#27 Fatal Conveniences: Sunscreen: Counterproductive Chemicals

"It's that time of the week for another fatal convenience. This is a bite sized segment that addresses some of society's Bagel conveniences and the steps you can take to avoid becoming a victim of them. I define fatal conveniences. As the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to. Tap Water, shampoos sunglasses food I dive into the hidden truths behind some of our everyday choices that could not only be harming us, but even killing us. So let's dive in. What's up everybody has gone welcome to another edition of fatal can be minces who ha- US oh. Hey. I realized that's an intense wording. And we're going to get into some intensity right here. We're GONNA pull back the curtains on Sunscreen I realize it's the end of. The End. Of Summer. But it's also the beginning of summer in like Australia So it's always summer somewhere. But this is super important information. I'M GONNA get out now. Sunscreen the Sun. All of that health, it's all interconnected vitamin D on a touch on vitamin D A little bit. But I'M GONNA focus on four main chemicals in sunscreen that is going to create a context for the greater conversation around sunscreen around our health around our of Aleutian of this idea of being afraid of the sun when those humans have been dealing with the sun for over two hundred thousand years and have been doing it very well through this thing called Melanin production that creates the color in your skin. and the more you go out the more Melanin is produced in the more vitamin D is produced etc, etc. So. This is important to start to unpack into understand K.. So what is the convenience here? Well sunscreen going outside gotta protect ourselves, protect ourselves, protect ourselves from the evil son. So people slather themselves on cancer melanoma. Skin cancers were running around afraid of all this stuff. So the fatal convenience is put this sunscreen on to block the Sun under any circumstance. Possible. Our kids were spraying on were lathering ourselves SPF thirty and fifty and a hundred even. But there's some consequences to that and I'm GONNA. I'M GONNA get into some of that right now there's four main Munns Abajo Ben Zone. Oxo Ben's own octo Sierra Lean, and E. Chem soul. Those are the main chemicals that are. Detrimental. In. The body. And so there's been a lot of tests around this and specifically around these active ingredients around. They're finding out more and more that a soon as you put this on your skin, it goes in to the blood and absorbs, and so that's the main thing. Now, we've been saying this, the skin is an Oregon. The skin is transdermal as transdermal effect in like you go into a shower and if you don't get rid of the chlorine fluoride, you're absorbing it through the skin. The same thing that when we put on these sunscreens, these chemical is sunscreens they're going into the bloodstream causing a biological effect of this chemical of fact, that is absolutely detrimental for own health. So the FDA. Finally, did their own small research They pulled a small research division and they actually said, okay. So so what's showing up in the blood after we put these sunscreens on iep these sunscreen chemicals, and of course, what they found was that six active ingredients, it was more than just the ones that I mentioned but the main one was oxy Ben Zone. That by putting on normal amounts, it showed up in the blood one, hundred eighty times. the FDA's level of concern. After one single application. Hello. So they're they're saying, Hey, you know at these are safe. These are generally recognized as safe that they all love to say is that is that scientific when they say it's generally recognized as safe. And then no one does tess on it that companies don't do tests on it. But then when pushed, the FDA does some tax on it, as well as some other people in it comes up with one single dose of this hormone disrupting chemical. That it comes up at a hundred and eighty times, and that is even that's only one dose and it showed was people don't normally just put one dose on if they're outside, they put multiple layers on multiple doses and then it soared at five hundred times the FDA's level of concern, and so previous research has shown that some of these ingredients that day study can disrupt. The hormones and lead to fertility problems, poor birth outcomes for babies, and perhaps of course cancer. Your cancer rates up as you putting on these damn. Chemical is blocking sunscreens. So then there was also a study that showed this may affect breast development infant birth rate, sperm function. As well as when you running around it's killing coral reefs. It's hurting the environment. It's toxic `fine our water. So as within so without so as you do things, it's helping you're. Hurting your body it's also hurting the environment and we have to keep that connected everything you're doing is affecting the environment. So trying to protect yourself from this delusion of the sun is GonNa kill you all the time. Then you're also toxic buying the environment. From the environmental working group, the fact that these chemicals are being found at elevated levels in our blood combined with evidence that they have been linked to adverse health impacts in other studies is extremely concerning. This is the vice president of the environmental working group Healthy Living Science Program. So you know I've been looking at the environmental working group doing a lot of powerful research trying to warn us all but you know most people don't know what's going on. In all of these things. So hormone disruption cancer causing, and in some instances increasing the other downside is by putting on Sunscreen you're decreasing your ability to produce vitamin D, and vitamin, D is a hundred percent critical. And healthy bones. Calcium, production, strong immune system, and many Americans have low vitamin D because they're afraid they're slapping on all of the sunscreen. Now, your main hormone for your immune system is being absolutely compromised and you have to have that the production of Vitamin D. which is a hormone is fat soluble and it's happening within the cholesterol interactions with the Melanin in the skin, and now you're disrupting that whole side of it, decreasing your immune system keeping you open to other breakdowns that actually help you against cancer. So how is this possible we seem to get everything Everything is the opposite it just. So weird to me. So people have been relying on the skin for making vitamin D and obviously the darker skin you need to stand the sun longer to receive the same vitamin D levels. The lighter skin we are the more efficient we are at. Grabbing. The sunlight is quickly as possible. When we you know migrated to the north, we had less and less sun exposure sore skin became lighter and pigment so that we can maximize the sun when we had it to increase our vitamin D production. So the dark skin around the equator, the Africans producing black skin they could be out in the sun because there were at the equator and their ability to produce vitamin D took longer because of the increase of skin pigment and Melanin so so. Far Away, from the equator, need to get out in the sun without sunscreen more so that they increase their vitamin D production extremely, extremely important. So we need to understand this from a Melanin perspective and the more Tan you get. The increase of Melanin the longer you need to stay out in the sun to to keep your vitamin D production high, and obviously when it turns in the winter wherever you're at is probably a good idea to take in vitamin D if you're not getting sun exposure without sunscreen. It's very interesting when you look at center. Disease Control and Prevention have found that Mexican Americans and African Americans are two to three times more likely than Caucasians to have low vitamin D levels. This is directly from the CDC in two thousand eleven people who used more sun protection or way more than average are also more likely to suffer. So that tells you it right there and human epidemiologic studies have linked low vitamin D to increased mortality from Heart Disease Colon Cancer, breast cancer, etc.. The other great thing that sun exposure without sunscreen is it increases nitric oxide, which is dilates the blood vessels which lowers blood pressure. So did you know that sun exposure without sunscreen? Helps dilate blood vessels increases the nitric oxide. So it dilates blood vessels and lowers blood pressure. And this is extremely important. This is directly with sun exposure to sunlight making nitric oxide. People here the stuff says common sense. This is it. Is a lot that we can get into. A around this, but let me leave you. With from a Nobel prize in physiology and medicine. Dr L. Linquist tracked the Sunbathing Habits of nearly thirty thousand women in Sweden over twenty years. Originally, he was studying blood clots, which he found occurred less frequently and women who spent more time in the sun and less frequently during the summer linquist looked at diabetes next. Sure enough. The Sun worshipers without sunscreen at much lower rates. Melanoma. question-mark true. The Sun worshippers had a higher incidence of it. But they were eight times less likely to die from it. So even though it can show up, melanoma can show up just like cancer is innocent on us, but the bodies regulating itself but the fact that your immune system is strong because of the sunlight, etc. this creates an incredible long term big expanded view of what the sun is. So linquist also decided to look at overall mortality rates and the results were shocking. Over twenty years of study son avoiders were twice as likely to die as Sun worshippers. There's not many. There not many daily lifestyle choices that double your risk of dying. In Two Thousand Sixteen Study published in the Journal of Internal Medicine Linquist team put it in perspective avoidance of Sun Exposure. Is a risk factor of a similar magnitude as smoking in terms of life expectancy. WHOA. That huge. So, sure enough when we have exposed volunteers to the. Equivalent of thirty minutes of of summer sunlight without sunscreen there nitric oxide levels went up and their blood pressure went down because of its connection to heart disease and strokes. Blood pressure is the leading cause of premature death and disease in the world and the reduction was of magnitude larger enough to prevent millions of deaths on a global level just by exposing yourself without Sunscreen to the sun. So I'M GONNA leave it at that I want you just to. Leave those questions that I left open because this raises a massive question. Of, even putting on sunscreen or using sunscreen. Okay. So what can you do about this honor where you're at honor what your ancestors have if you have history of melanoma in your in your in your epidemiological past family than just be aware of that be aware of where you're starting how much melanin you have, how much tan you have will give you an indication of how much you can stand the son do not burn that. Is, clear, across all research burning is not a good idea and they found that if you're putting on slathering, you have been out the sun much your slathering on. SPF's that people have a higher chance of burning with using sunscreen. So you have to use your commonsense if you're light skin if you're out too long put on hats, put on clothing and cover up after a certain period of time. And then you can use zinc oxide and titanium dioxide which does not go through the skin cause harm that's clear on science and like I said, before bigger SPF is not better in it's showing that most of the sprays could be infinitely worse in terms of the chemical player ration- that it's causing in opportunities I have a bunch of information in the show notes. So please go to DERNA LEAN DOT COM slash fatal conveniences or just fatal conveniences dot com and it will take you there. So I have a lot of information from an environmental working group couple brands that I looked at mad hippie Goddess Garden. also as prebiotics to help the skin, keep balanced Badger, SPF thirty, five and Blue Lizard are some of them So Super Helpful Vitamin D is extremely important for the overall health So we realized that we're we're using all of this stuff. It's detrimental not only to keeping your body unbalanced, but also eliminate the exposure to these chemicals please do not by any. Sunscreens that have these chemicals in them and as well as do your homework. If you can eat it, you can put it on your skin. Okay everyone. That's a big one I realize I opened up a can of worms on that one because I think you're starting to get that you should not be afraid of the sun does a much bigger picture to apply here and we'll get into that at some point. But today it's focused on these chemicals that are absolutely harmful hormone disrupting cancer causing, and they should not be in any sunscreens or put on any skin whatsoever and that using sunscreen. Also blocks very important pathways, nitric oxide, which lowers overall mortality as well as it lowers your vitamin D production, which also lowers the immune system in opens you up to overall mortality levels of death. So there you go all right I love you for tuning in that was the next installment of the fatal conveniences. One I hope you're feeling inspired to take a closer look at the. Choices.

Remember small changes can have a big impact. Keep diving my friends keep diving. And if you haven't had a chance to check out the interview I released earlier in the week. Here's what you missed. Thirty percent of our volume is might Conrad. So we are largely water, right but a lot of that water is within and around the Mitochondria. So can you imagine like thirty percent of my weight is my congre? That's pretty ridiculous. I didn't know that until recently but so that is our that is our by these things are us we are them. It isn't like this other thing they are us in the better they work. The better we work, and so I'm sort of. With with sharing all this, my goal is to get people to be friendly with our economy A-. Because just like you said, the old model is the nuclear model, which is like I have these genes in these are my jeans and it's like, yes but those are just like we talked about it's almost like a grocery store. It's like you can go in and get anything you want it. All depends on what you choose, and the way you choose is by being friends with your mighty Qendra and doing things in your environment and your life that make them work better in that makes all the nuclear genes be expressed better to.

"Culling only juice it's time for line Ninja Radio Yeah. It's a weird event to go pick up a prescription in my life and I know so many people that it's just normal. That's what you do on Thursdays Sir what being part of an organization that people with people out of that and educate them to alternative talkative solutions to to life circumstances such as blood pressure on this podcast is sponsored by the Lime Ninja in just symptom tracker. I'm so excited to tell you about our new lyme. Ninja symptom tracker one of the things I hear over and over again whether it's talking to a patient in my office office or consulting over the phone with the client is just how difficult it is to keep track of progress on their life journey recording symptoms daily or even weekly. Give them too many data points. There's so many ups and downs twists and turns at some point. They get lost and confused. The Lime Ninja symptom tracker takes all all the guesswork out of tracking symptoms with the simple monthly questionnaire. Once a month is the perfect interval deceive that new supplement or protocol is working right now. When you take the symptom tracker questionnaire we give you a simple composite score for the month but we had big plans and the data you enter will not be losses. We roll out new features best of all. It's free just head on over the lions radio DOT COM slash tracker and sign up. That's lime conju radio DOT COM slash tracker. You'll be glad you did hello and welcome to the latest episode of Lime Time Ninja Radio. I'm your host today in the brain's fine lime Ninja Radio Aurora and this is episode number two hundred and forty four with Mark Mark Young in this episode. We're going to be learning three main things of how mark young experience with combating bloodpressure what the Zona machine is and and how this <unk> machine helps you maintain a healthy blood pressure even when you're sick and you can't get out of bed before before we get started I want to have before we get started with the interview. I'd like to send a shout out tall you longtime lime. Ninjas are the reason we have half a million downloads and each week we have listener show new from all of the world from Hong Kong to Tel Aviv leave now a little bit more about marquee is the CEO of Zone a health now. Zona is a handheld device which is used is to improve cardiovascular health. McKay has been using it for a little bit now and has been really interested in this device ice and also the results that he's seen so without further ado here is the interview with Mark Young Lamarcus McKay repeat from line manager radio the Nice to see you McKay. Thanks so much for having me today. It's Kinda funny here because we've been chatting now for forty four minutes and fifty three seconds and and now you push or about now we pushed the record button and we're getting going here so if if you're listening to this and you kind of feel like you're coming into the conversation in the middle title you are but we're going to our best backup and make some sense of this and some more tell us how did you you mentioned a little bit about your background so you bounced all over the place. But how did you get hooked up with fighter pilot technology and becoming a medical device manufacturer. I mean that's not normal path for anybody. Yeah you don't you don't deliberately end up here. I'll agree with you there. Yes as I was telling you might career has been a little bit strange because I'll say that I I've kind of moved into a lot of different things but it's all been because of passion and <hes> I've always followed you know my heart on that kind of stuff which sounds cliche but it's true <hes> specifically now working in the cardiovascular world but <hes> in doing that what I'll say is I became aim acquainted with Zona. <hes> quite a few years ago when Zona actually had already been in a business that was in place and became acquainted with Zona because I'd actually worked with with multiple different companies in the medical device space and interestingly enough was contacted by Zona specifically to work on in projects that they were working out so through mutual acquaintances ended up being connected with <hes> with the team there <hes> worked with Zona actually invested in zone zone. I believed in the product so much that actually put cash into the business <hes> in addition to doing that. I ended up staying connected business for many years and eventually ended up becoming coming to CEO of the company which is kind of interesting <hes> my background was mostly McKay. I'll be honest with you can tell you that I've spent the majority of my career in higher education <hes> working at colleges ages and universities both as a university professor as well as administrator multiple different campuses throughout the country so my background's in education and <hes> as as as we discussed prior that everybody else doesn't have access to that because there was no reporting as we discussed prior it's like I'm also a bit of a fitness enthusiast so the fact that <hes> working with the product and with a company such as Zona that provides the fitness related thing be the all natural non non-pharmaceutical solutions rise right up my alley and the fact that I get to work every day helping people and educating them on why product like this is a perfect perfect alternative <hes> to pharmaceuticals and I don't know if I'm answering your question or if I'm going too far <hes> but the reality is is the using using science like we have with the Zona plus is a it's a counter cultural solution specifically loving it is it's it's very counter cultural and as you and I were discussing author he the biggest thing that we see today particularly in the medical field and and not any kind of criticism towards the medical field to people in the field that are that are listening <hes> but I would say that as a culture we seem very farmer pharmacologically dependent and there seems to be a hill for everything and the reality is in my experience. The side effects are are worse than the symptoms that the pill is trying to cure nine hundred ten cases. <hes> an doc wallet does fix the problem is a lot of things that come with it and you actually interestingly enough gave him give an analogy and told a story about patients of yours. That would commend you. Give you'd ask him to give a health history. Tell you everything was fine. Nothing's wrong. Everything's good I'm in good health and then they give you a a laundry list of of prescriptions that they're taking <hes> and and there's just this disconnect in your mind. What was it would be fine if everything's working so why are you on all these medications and and the reality is is that it's just become normal the it's just become normal men in my life if I have to go to the pharmacy to pick up a prescription normally. It's like an antibiotic because so you know I caught a cold or whatever <hes> it's a weird event. Go pick up a prescription in my life. <hes> and I know so many people that it's just normal. That's what you do on Thursdays you know so. I I love being part of an organization that is able to <hes> get people out of that mindset and educate them to alternative solutions to to life circumstances such as high blood pressure or in many cases even some of the other other things that were able to to address using the science and you give them an alternative to tha that prescription living that dependency you know there's this phrase that started to creep around you know it's stay in your lane right and the thing is as a human being is you need to have access to all those different lanes and not <hes>. I I think as physicians and even sometimes a- as an acupuncture we get our ego get attached to our lane and we don't want people leaving our lane so we'll we'll we'll fight for them to stay in our lane when really what they need to do is move out and I love that you said that you know. Zone is counter cultural device in as an acupunctures that does rank drew's like Slough. I ended up in acupunctures acupunctures like Yep. We're going to do something against the flow here and then stick needles and make him feel better. Larry's three though it's so true and I love that counter cultural anything and maybe that just speaks to my personality but I'm always trying to disassemble everything in my mind and come up with a better solution like there's gotta be a better way to do this better mouse trap kind of mentality and and I'm always you know again. I'm always in my mind trying to disassemble everything to find a way that we can make it better and this is a solution that I just literally and using myself as I was telling you all fair yeah you know still this whole idea of I love speaking to physicians who have a previous life as has an engineer because they approach medicine at as an engineer they wanNA break it down. They WanNa know what's making it work and they want to make things better better and not always like a thousand times better but just a little bit of can we do this a little bit always ask the question can't break do this in a better way and that's not a physician conversation conversation and I'm going to insult some people out there but if you are a physician or health practices during you have that mindset your year unusual you know your bid a little counter counterculture with within your culture there most of the physicians are busy and are interested in doing the right thing so they're following the protocols that that have been laid out for them. There's less and less space for creativity within within the profession now the other thing I want to bring up but just in terms of lyme disease. One of the side effects that some people get with lyme disease is their blood pressure skyrockets right for there's no apparent reason they're just something breaks down in the management system so your device will be directly applicable to to that subset set of the population. A lot on the other side are actually dealing more with pots things the posture <unk>. What does that Ortho static whatever Taika anyway you stand up and you get faint right your blood. Pressure doesn't adjust quick quickly enough and you know for for that side of things it does does zone regulate both up and down or is it just kind of only been shown to to reduce blood pressure. That's really interesting that you say that because <hes> one of the things and we're actually in the process right now of going through a very large clinical study that that we've <hes> you know put out to make stronger claims about the product and so on which I'm like. I can't even tell you how excited about this and I'll give you some statistics on that in a minute but you're specifically speaking if I'm hearing you're talking about Ortho static hypertension. Yes thank you yep and what what is for instance the blood pressure in the body drops during during <hes> you know some kind of <hes> what I'll say a reactive activity like for instance standing up to fasting upright something really difficult standing seriously seriously but as a person stands up too quickly and then as that person stands up too quickly to blood pressure drops suddenly and and been doesn't self-regulate fast enough <hes> interestingly enough that's part of the study that we're doing with Zona and part of the reason behind it is because says that's part of having an increased blood pressure because the blood pressure. It's not just that it statically stays high. It's that it fluctuates too much. <hes> for instance one of the things things that we measure with the device and the device doesn't measure for the average user who's using it at home <hes> but we measure it in clinicals. That's one of the things we do is after are using the device <hes> you know and we haven't really described the way the device works. I probably should step backwards and walks with a treatment looks like so all of this makes sense to somebody thirty year. Let's do that yeah so I'll get back to the point talking about or static hypertension but so there's only device but those that are listening while explain to as it's a hand held device kind of looks like a it gets described as looking like a star Trek phaser <hes> or looking like a scanner at a grocery store checkout <hes> but the reality is. It's a hand grip. It's a hand grip with the display and what does owner does it uses isometric therapy isometric of course the Latin words were being equal measurement and isometrics is is a is a is an anaerobic exercise and what it is is it's holding us something and making the muscles stay at an exact measurement over a prolonged period of time and as an example what you see is the differences. I was explaining to McKay moment. Ago Is the difference between doing a sit up versus a plank in a sit up as aerobic exercise. A plank is anaerobic. It's holding things at a static up. I'll say pressure but at a static resistance level was Zona does it. It's a hand grip and moving from your right hand to your left. Hand it measures. There's enough time you use it. The maximum squeeze that your body is able to do today and some mornings. I'm just I'm just my body's not as strong as it is other mornings <hes> and eh can't squeeze it as heart but it's okay because Zona actually uses algorithms to calculate your maximum grip strength for today and then it has you calibrate right hint calibrate left-hand then you actually do a two minute therapy on your right hand what it does is it actually forces you to stay in an exact thirty the three percent of maximum grip strength for a period of two minutes you rest for one moment you do the two minutes on your left hand breast two minutes on your right hand rest two minutes on your left <hes> this back and forth and the break times are exactly measured and been measured through multiple different studies is proving that the two minutes is the exact interval and that the the thirtyish percent the exact number and what it does is it keeps you within within a <hes> a tower of that exact percentage and the system using both audio and visual cues tells you if you need to squeeze more or you need to squeeze less and it's amazing easing how at the end of two minutes first of all you feel tired from it but more than that what happens is you'll notice that your grip starts to relax and all of a sudden you're being told squeeze more squeeze more squeeze more squeezing the same as I was and you're like No. I'm not I guess but you know your your arm starts to weaken so the idea that you need to keep it there and can do it <unk> by yourself without such a measurement devices not accurate but using that isometric therapy what happens is static hold on on on that grip rip for that period of time forces the muscle into <hes> into an isometric which is an equal measurement. Imagine the case that you did a squat what everybody's familiar with a squat you know feet parallel standing shoulder length apart you know but back chest up and you and you drop as low as you can bending bending only your knees <hes> now imagine you did that but you only went down thirty percent of the way and had to stop and hold that squad for two minutes your legs get tired and what happens is as your muscles starts to fatigue your body response to that fatigue by pushing additional blood flow to the oxygen eight the muscle to make sure the muscles able to able to control itself and not get damaged the beautiful part about that is that overtime it's usually refined as a period somewhere between four to eight weeks and it actually varies by user but over that period of time what happens is the <hes> the wining and the blood vessels actually start to reform and it actually increases the elasticity in the resistance vessels and increasing <hes> that US tizzy increased to greater permeability in the endothelial lining in the cardiovascular system <hes> not only does that make for or better blood flow because obviously the more flexible the <hes> that the blood vessels are the more freely blood can flow but the more freely blood can flow <music>. Obviously the pressure goes down. It's like releasing the Kink in a garden hose and allowing the water to flow and in doing so what happens you just become overall real healthy and and at the same time as you were speaking McKay one of the things that you talked about was that that that increased elasticity and and the increased permeability particularly in that endothelial lining makes for greater saturation of nitric oxide throughout the body and I'll I'll shut up and let that you speak on the nitric oxide side because that's your area of expertise more than anything <hes> does that explain it if I got in too weird on that no no now. I'm I've got some really basic. Questions here like has anybody ever broken. One of these like some strong man says yeah it squeezed it and I broke it and not even close. Every every device is actually in our manufacturing center is actually calibrated and we actually put it in a cradle that specifically shaped like the device crush it and every devices pre crushed before you receive it but we put it in there and calibrated but it's it's calibrated rated for up to I. It's somewhere I forget. The exact calibration of her is but it's it's over two hundred pounds of pressure like I told you I mean I'm. I'm a relatively strong I and and I get it to about one hundred pounds of pressure so that someone's going to have that much hand grip strength to crush the devices probably not gonNa Happen and then how about on the other side. Can you be too weak to use it. No Serb is again bear in mind it only measures. It actually calibrates. It's to your daily maximum grip strength so even a person who's elderly in <unk>. We have people who use it are in their eighties with arthritis <hes> and what it does is it calibrates to you and in calibrating to you you get the same benefit a person who's eighty years old and can only squeeze it at the thirty forty pounds of pressure and and then does the therapy. It's the exact same benefit of a strong man who squeezes it to one hundred and fifty pounds of pressure because it's calibrating to that individual's visuals maximum grip strength you know. I've got a infrared sauna in my practice and that's one of the benefits of the Sauna. Donna is that you go in there and you get a you can get a cardio workout because your body has to work on cooling itself just by sitting there air ways you get somebody who's you know can't for whatever reason isn't very mobile but this is even better because you don't even have to get out of bed and you don't have the expensive buying yourself. Asana to get your body working in this way into recognize okay that work is being done and we need to begin to send out all the healing and growth hormones that happen when that's kicking in now. Here's here's a little side. Do have you ever said you're a fitness. Have you ever dealt into like the power of ten exercise stuff that I know what you're talking. Okay personally embarrassed myself and say I'm more of a across the guy that's all right it. Just it strikes me. It's really lines up in some ways. It's not isometric in that. You are moving the weights but you're doing it so slow and then part of it is you are at the last rep holding it for as long for as long as you can there be failure and that that is purely isometric so you brought the muscles to failure and then you're still asking them to work and it really sounds to me like the same. It's kicking in the same mechanism now. The other thing is and I noticed you didn't say this explicitly early but the the period of time you're squeezing Ford's two minutes and two minutes may or may not sound like a long time to you but in in I've started using this and two minutes I realize is much longer than I'm not only focusing on anything focusing on using this device for two minutes hits for four different intervals. I have to be honest. Decay probably exercises my brain yes of my more than it does my body. I was going to ask you about that. How much is this. This is simply disguised meditation. Do you talk. I'm going to tell you that the science behind the body is very very much very very much. <hes> rooted in research but to your point. I believe that there is actually a <hes> eight a halo effect. If you will <hes> that takes place because it does force you to pay attention to it. We're we're such a multitask <hes> world that when when we're having to force through to rest our minds and focus on something that does require that work one of the one of the this is interesting because we're actually in the process right now. If you know doing some potential redesigns <hes> you know to just always trying to improve the technology and the user experience. One of the suggestions was made. Can we do this so that there are much stronger audio cues so that a person doesn't have to visually watch it and they can do it while doing other things and and the conversation that you're bringing up actually came up in our conversations are indeed was sure we can we can change the way the audio accuser used an and and so on but are we actually getting rid of some of the benefit and that is just making a person's mind stopped for twelve minutes. 'cause I don't know about you but I don't think my does most other times the day I was starting so I I started to attempt to read my email while I was doing my Zona and that lasted about twenty twenty seconds okay. Let's focus now. There's a mine is sitting on my desk right in front of me and as I told you it's like I've I've never had a problem with blood pressure before <hes> and then all of a sudden I did and I think that's I think that's the story for most people people and it's like I. I'm forty four years old and I shouldn't have blood pressure as you and I never have <hes> and then all of a sudden I get my blood pressure for UN for or no reason I mean there's no external reason I mean maybe some stress I guess but I mean my blood pressure was always like one ten over seventy I would go to the doctor and the nurse would take egg might be P and we'd be like Oh are you a runner and I am thank you you know and <hes> but what's funny. Is that all of a sudden. I've actually but all of a sudden my my blood bloodpressure. I've taken a reading because I didn't feel well and it was like one forty five over ninety. Something like Holy Cow Lick ready to have heart attack here shift breath. It was a big shift and it was very sudden and as I told you it was the rubber hit the road because I'm telling everybody to lower their blood pressure naturally but I didn't have the problem so it almost seemed <hes> somewhat hypocritical and then all of a sudden here I am having to take take a spoonful of the the medicine and then I'm telling everybody else keeps us it. It really does it really doesn't really became that physician heal thyself moment <hes> and and the reality is that that's exactly what I'm doing. I'm sitting here with one on my desk and I do it every day when I come in the office that gives me five days a week and if I'm traveling. It's in my briefcase briefcase <hes> for anyone who is about to ask this question. No you never have a problem going to airport security device and we find that what happens is as people are using the device iced over a period of time <hes> they stopped getting those symptoms at Ortho static hypo tension also gets under control and the reason for Ford is because your body's not trying to push blood through narrower more static openings there. There's more flexibility. There's there's you know more permeability so so yes. It actually does help with that. That's okay so that's the first time I've thought of the the low blood pressure as is also being an actually the the chains lack of change of blood pressure is also being a consequence of inflexibility in in the cardiovascular system but it makes sense is you're asking the body to respond in some way and its ability. It's flexibility is in up to snuff so it takes some time to to adjust like if you're gonNa if you have stiff capillaries and you're in a nice comfortable seated position or lying down and they go to stand up and and all of a sudden you need to get more blood into your brain and your capital and your arteries are stiff it just can't do it can't do it yourself and I whoa and never thought of it as a as the opposite end of of of stiffness but the same result no thank you for that interesting right yeah absolutely absolutely so to lack of ability to adjust the lack of the flexibility I wanNA throw them out there. I said to you that we're in the process right now of wearing the in the midst of giant research the era for us. We're doing lots more research and doing a lot more things than an part of that is because we talk about the nitric oxide released but also the ability to you know create more flexibility throughout the entire cardiovascular and circulatory systems <hes> very interesting to me. There's so many other things things that while I'm careful not to call them because a lot of the things I'm going to say are are actual medical indications so I don't want to speak out of turn on the but what I will we'll say is increasing blood flow and increasing <hes> nitric oxide production is <hes> is a treatment for multiple other types of indications completely unrelated to high blood pressure. Yom For we find that you know people who use his own a plus and I I will I will preface and be very careful careful to not overstep my clinical boundaries here but we find that anecdotally <hes> people tell us that using the Zona. They don't actually <hes> <hes> it. They don't have migraine headaches anymore because migraines are usually related to constricted blood vessels leading to bring an increased blood flow reduces the migraine because it increases that blood flow same thing for erectile dysfunction. That's that's all a matter of blood flow and and people who <hes> and we talked about that actually on the Dave aspirant podcasts. I know you said you listen to that and increased blood flow fixes that problem woman increased blood flow and increased nitric oxide production it. It's linked to increases in memory. It's overall zooey yeah it. It's it's ridiculous. I mean truthfully. It's it's muscle recovery. <hes> I mean personally like any friends of mine that are just avid. Fitness is people even if they don't have high blood pressure. I recommend that they're using a device like this. Because most you talk about the power of ten but most people who are working out our lifting pinged they're running. They're playing sports all aerobic and you talk about opposite ends of the same coin and that is this is an anaerobic exercise. It's the opposite of what they're doing to work out. It actually works out the other side of the system if you will and doing that they're actually pushing towards muscle muscle exhaustion and this actually increases muscle recovery right which so so important. I'm sure you know I have in my practice. <hes> people who over exercise right there compensating their it's their stress relief so they're stressed out of their mind the only way they can call their brains down on his Bhai over exercising so they're always on the limit of physical damage litter or immune system damage and there are lots of reasons why why why that happens in the scientists pretty good on that they don't allow themselves the country using using something like this and and making sure they've got the the like. I said that ANAEROBIC backup it increases muscle recovery simply because the nitric oxide production. It's better than any. VCA They're gonNA take a a water bottle to the gym yeah now. I'm going to pause here a little bit and I'm GonNa. I'm GonNa speculate some though let's talk about nitric oxide and then you can give me your comments so nitric oxide. Is this coordinating signaling molecule. Though it's like an it to like the gears on a mountain bike like the the more gears you have the more you can do with your mountain bike and that's nitric doc so. I wanted to work and gives you all these extra years so you can go up the hill and down the ill and over the obstacles smoothly and as you lose strick oxide. I'd what happens is you lose your ability to adjust to your environment and so things become more stressful and more damage is done and somebody who's got lime disease. They're really in recovery mode all the time right. They've they've just gone through this marathon of fighting off this infection in the gutter recover from it or they're still in the process of pointing all and bure nitric oxide system isn't coordinated or coordinating your recovery then and you're not GonNa heal as well and we see these things that you were talking about that are also related to nitric oxide. Sleep patterns is nitric oxide. Bow Motilal Tilleke is related to nitric oxide of course blood pressure which we've been talking about. Everybody kind of knows about that. Blood flow is all related to depression has been linked to nitric oxide aside. They've actually done some studies where they've treated resistant depression with <hes> with nitric oxide gas. It's just again. It's not there. There's a wonderful study where they they eliminated. They changed mouse genetically and they took away the mices ability to produce nitric oxide oxide through the the enzymes and these mice were born fine. They lived okay for a while but after they get hit about mice middle title Mouse Middle Age which is about eight to ten months all of a sudden they started dying of heart attacks for no reason except that they didn't have the nitric oxide so nitrile oxide isn't critical like oxygen. You're not going to die in a couple of minutes but again without those gears the coordination of these gears in the body nitric nitric oxide provides. You're GONNA hit some sort of road bump in your life. Whether it's lime disease or whatever it's going to be and all of a sudden you're not. GonNa respond as well yeah. I completely agree with you. I don't know what he did to add to that. That's exactly exactly right and and I think a lot lot of people don't realize the overall benefits nitric oxide in his you're saying the wheels and a bicycle that the the the the gears and I mean you're talking about the benefits of nitric oxide production being blood. I mean just overall circulation which leads to healthier immunity because with better circulation it leads to detoxification because the more the bloods able to move the more you don't end up with style say toxins wedged in the body someplace because they're they're flushed out through better blood blood flow that you're talking about better better blood flow leading to muscle recovery which leads to endurance levels increased alertness levels because increased blood flow increases increases the amount of oxygen that gets moved around the body particularly to the brain the I mentioned ed pain relief just just so so many benefits and and again. I would say that it's it's something that I think the average person just doesn't know much about and it's not talked about enough in the medical community well. This takes going to bring this about back around to where we started before he hit the record button and then wrap wrap up here. You've been most generous with your time. I've taken up way too much of it for a CEO of a big company like you've gone on. There is one thing I wanted to okay you. Go ahead so one of the things I was actually saying to earlier McCabe again. I mentioned that we're in. We're in a big research cycle right now. And what are the things that I found this interesting because this is actually a statistic that I did not know <hes> and it was discussed in the submission of an it recently and the number and so we talked about systolic diastolic blood pressure and systolic being the top number diastolic the bottom the the systolic blood pressure from the FDA standards the FDA considers a significant drop in what pressure and and I'm I'm curious. You know this number at all. I would imagine which looked at some of these studies. It's not much depressingly small. It's depressingly small yeah and and the FDA calls a significant drop in blood pressure five points that it if your blood pressure sure is it one fifty dropping to one forty five his third medically significant but Lemme Lemme tell you the statistic that I just I heard though and this is this is new information. I will be honest and tell you that it was discussed in a conversation I haven't went and pulled up the research myself but I have no reason to disbelieve the person who shared and that is the reason that the FDA says five points is considered medically significant. Is that for every five points that you lower your systolic Alec blood pressure it actually cuts your risk of heart attack in half while every five point so it's assuming that we started at an eighty percent risk factor <hes> five points brings you down to a forty percent risk factor and another five points brings you down to twenty money and another five points brings you down at. I mean obviously that that number is always going to have some level because you're never going to divide by by two and get two zero but but but the reality is is that it's going to just keep bringing that that at risk factor down over and over again and I thought that's that just blows my mind that it's such a small thing because I even asked question in that unit research meeting. I said you're saying five points. I mean certainly you mean five percentage points points right and the answer was 'cause. I'm thinking well blood pressure. One fifty five points get you to one forty five five percentage points ditch it down to one forty forty two and a half like May. Maybe that's I mean that's that's a bigger number and I was corrected and told no it is actually won. You know won fifty to one forty forty five. It's five actual points that makes that reduction and let me tell you the reason why that blew me away. McKay is that we've taken every clinical study study that we've had on Zona and I'm talking strict blood pressure right now not not anything related to all the other possible positive side effects. We've discussed the but just related to blood pressure. If I took every clinical study we've done okay and that that's research. That's been done by Johns Hopkins. That's research. That's been done at the Mayo Clinic Yada Yada Yada. I'm all of them averaged together so it's not that one study was particularly good and that's the one we use all of them averaged together so the ones that showed the most impact to the ones that showed the least all of them showed effective but in just an average it's number of all over the results shows that Zona decreased systolic blood pressure by nineteen points and Mike and and that's on average we say we say ten to fifteen percent is normally the number but nineteen points the FDA says that five five points is a statistically significant number and we're dropping nineteen AMAC holy colleague the Almo- I almost I sit hear those numbers. I'm like who want to do this right blowing a lawyer yeah seriously and in a it's almost like it's almost got this this this a-bomb when it comes to due to fighting this problem and yet. I I'll say that we're probably the best solution no one's ever heard of so that that's on me and we need to make sure that more people hear about right but those numbers to meet just there there is indisputable in. Oh okay at at the risk of sending you a uh off. I'm so you know you see the ADS on TV selling scooters right not gonNA cost you. A dime. Medicare is going to pay for it. Just give us your information and will handle all the billing and stuff like that. How how difficult is it to get an on a list like that. Where instead of handing out a pill? They're handing <MUSIC> OUT ZONA DEVICE WILL I. I can't tell you that that is a <hes>. That's a thing what I will tell you is that if if you do any research on the scooter places that were doing that they ended up in class action lawsuits yeah what they're still selling them pincay shutdown other but in art in it is just the way that they that they do that but I mean I don't know you don't you don't have to you don't have to talk about them. I'll make fun of they can come after me you got yeah but but but in terms but in terms of getting a approved as a <hes> and a code to go with it they can prescribe a doctor could prescribe your device. It's what's what's that process like. Is it something even consider sitters like wait. This is too big right now now. The process is grueling and I told you that we're in a research cycle right now and much of the reason behind that is for that the reason that you're discussing I wouldn't use that as a point to anybody who could possibly be listening to the podcast to tell them to you know don't take action now because he may be covered over glaister five hundred yeah it to the contrary that's not happening by next. Thursday <hes> I would tell you that we're in the process right now doing some of that right and part of it is that in order to in order to receive that type of that type approval. It's unfortunately it's April work issue. <hes> and we've already moved in that direction. We're already looking <hes> to make sure that that happens. <hes> now. I think our biggest portions even without that in place we want to get the science out to people who want to use it and and there are some people who are going to tell us they simply can't afford you know that that private healthcare that way <hes> <hes> and what I would tell you is one of the things that we talked about earlier was the difference between healthcare and sick care <hes> and I would tell you making an investment in buying things that improve your overall health save you fortunes later on and then you had talked about your lime disease. <hes> you know issues where you couldn't even practice medicine. You can work in your own practice because you had taken a decline. It was an expensive three months. Yeah I was GONNA say probably the most expensive health problem you've ever had and it wasn't related to the medical bills. It was related to the loss of income and and I think that's it to me anyways. I look at it that my goal in stain in good health isn't so that I can avoid medical bills or isn't so I can make sure that I only get diseases. That insurance discovers it's because I don't want to lose my quality of life. I don't WANNA lose my ability to earn I don't want to I don't WANNA lose. Those things and I think those are opportunity. Tapie costs that we seldom think about that said we are actually F. S. A. H. S. A. Approved so anybody who has flexible spending accounts health saving saving accounts <hes> you can use that money towards getting zone. <hes> insurance companies require that you get specific information if somebody I have seen at work where a doctor actually writes the personal letter telling the insurance company that this is something that they should cover for the sake of wellness and insurance companies have reimbursed but in terms of actually having a building code the answer is we do not have one right now <hes> and that simply because we've been pushing other directions. We've actually been expanding ending into international markets and so on but we're working there. We're actually working there right now. That's part of our research. Cycle is getting to that point and I didn't mean that as a dacre just my mind no I would love that I would honestly love it if everybody could get their hands on one because what happens is there's <hes> say that if you're not covered by insurance and I hate that phrase I absolutely hate that because the best things for you are not things the insurance chance company wants to pay for the insurance company wants to they just WanNa treat the sickness. They don't want to help the wellness. There's a difference <hes> and unfortunately there's Consumer Sumer skepticism <hes> because we we believe that if insurance doesn't cover it that it must not be good it must be it must not be quality enough in a hate that that that cynicism actually as you know takes over too much of our thinking <hes> so yeah we get it. We understand it and I would love it if I could to put this in the hands of everybody because the reality is that if people didn't have to put a risk in divine one of the risks being that I'm GONNA put my money up to see if it works which we do have a ninety ninety day money back guarantee so if it doesn't work people can send it back. We don't expect anybody to take risk with it but if somebody got it from an insurance company <hes> you give them zero risk to frying. It and I think that would be able to get more people do it. That's not that's incredible. Drug should come with the ninety day money back guarantee you think right. I think a lot of people are interested did and checking out all the research you have. You have an awesome website. Where do they go. They can go directly to SONA DOT COM TO Z. O. N. A. DOT DOT COM and check it out. Check out the research checkout. You know everything about it. Give us a call at your if you still have questions call and talk to one of our customer service people they'll they'll gladly gladly help and that number is eight six six six six nine nine six six two <hes> it's also on our website but Zona. Oh Dot com would be the place to go and I will tell you mackay people who are listening to your podcast if they want to actually go and try his own for themselves what I'm GonNa do right now. I'm actually doing it as we're speaking right now. I'm going to make sure that I give them some kind of incentive to listening to your podcast and let them share share in the in the wells here on in for your generosity of having the on the show. I want to pass that along to them and offer them if they use the coupon code McKay Okay Emma A. C. K. A. Y. <hes>. I'll just put that into our system here and Mac K. A. Y. Will actually offer them a one hundred dollar discount if they do want to try the device go to our go to our website and when it asked you for your coupon code just type in coupon code. McKay and it'll give you that hundred dollar discount at certainly I take some of the sting out of trying amazing new signs right absolutely <music> and that was our interview with mark. Young you know so many people with lyme disease have issues with a blood pressure and combining that with any other symptoms like fatigue that might be on top of that okay and I were really interested in this product because it seemed a fairly simple straightforward and on some possibly most importantly supplement free way to maintain a some control over your cardiovascular health so I encourage you to check out the zone and let's see if that would work for you also encourage you to visit our website.
