#196: A Deep Dive on Food, Love, and Community with Dr. Mark Hyman
We can eat really well, get great sleep, and workout several times a week in an effort to feel our best. These steps are all clearly important, but they don’t mean anything if we’re missing love and connection.  On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, I talk to my good friend and business partner Dr. Mark Hyman, a practicing family physician and an internationally recognized leader, speaker, educator, and advocate in the field of Functional Medicine.

Dr Jeff Matheson | Why the quality of your fats on keto matter! KKP: 237
Today, I am blessed to have here with me for the THIRD time Dr. Jeff Matheson. He is the co-founder of an all-natural migraine and headache centre, which promotes a non-narcotic approach to pain and headache management. Plus, Dr. Jeff Matheson is the co-founder and medical director of Pure Life Science. Dr. Jeff Matheson successfully practiced medicine in emergency departments across Canada and internationally, from Ontario, Newfoundland, and Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. He later was appointed Medical Director of Med-EmergInc in 1998, a company dedicated to staffing underserved hospitals in Canada. Dr. Matheson has traveled extensively throughout Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and South East Asia and well as Oceania. According to Dr. Matheson, “traveling is the best education!” Dr. Matheson is an enthusiastic believer, as well as being immersed in other cultures. Similarly, if one does not listen to patients, one won’t hear what is necessary to understand the patient’s problem, i.e., the patient’s “culture.” It is with this ability to listen and empathize with the patients that Dr. Matheson allows an accurate diagnosis and develop sustainable solutions, optimizing health, and patient outcomes. If a solution cannot be determined, resources will be dedicated, through the involvement of alternative care specialists, ascertaining the best possible treatment for the patient by trying to treat causes, not just manage symptoms. In this episode, Dr. Jeff Matheson dives straight into how our body will produce energy through our cell membranes. If someone lacks energy, they usually think they have a hormone problem, meaning they need to take more hormones. However, that's not the case. Dr. Jeff Matheson explains how our hormones require a delicate balance; adding exogenous hormones will push our bodies out of balance. Instead, think about making different nutritional decisions to fix any hormone irregularities. Later, we discuss why keto and fasting are great for our cells and why fish oils aren't so great for them. Tune in as we chat all about Pure Life Omegas. * Pure Form Omega: https://purelifescience.com/products/pure-form-omega-natural (Use code: Ben4) * Pure Form Omega Liquid: https://purelifescience.com/products/pure-form-omega-liquid (Use code: Ben3) [01:15] How Our Body Will Produce Energy * We're made up of about 70 trillion cells. * Our body is great at communication, not only within each organ but between organs. All this communication is done through the cell membranes. * The cell membrane is the basic divide between the outside world and the inside world – that’s where the fundamental communication takes place. * All hormonal issues boil down to unhealthy cell membranes. [03:45] Hormones Aren’t That Simple * Hormones need a delicate balance. If you start adding exogenous hormones into the system, you're going to push that system out of balance. * How adding exogenous hormones into your body will affect you later on down the road is really difficult to predict. * The whole hormonal cascade is extremely complex. * When people correct their underlying nutritional issues, usually within six to nine months, they should be able to come off all exogenous hormones. [06:25] Bad Things That Develop In Our Cells * The problem that will affect people first is mitochondrial issues. The mitochondria is a very high-energy place, it's supposed to produce lots of energy, but it can be screwed up fairly easily. The first thing that people feel is fatigue - that's that mitochondria sort of breaking down. * Later down the road, genetic issues will show up, and that’s when you start getting cancers. [09:15] Why Your Supplements Might Not Be Working * If you have an unhealthy cell membrane, things can't get in. * On average, the cell membrane is 50% fat. If you have abnormal fats in that cell membrane, that membrane becomes more like plastic. When you put plastic wrap on something, not a lot of stuff gets through. * So, you won't be able to get good things in very efficiently, and you won't be able to get the bad things out very efficiently. It's only a matter of time in that kind of situation until you have a total cell breakdown. [14:30] How Keto & Fasting Help Support The Cell Membrane * The brain is about 70% fat – it operates on keto about seven to eleven times more efficiently than on carbohydrates. * Fat-based energy production is way more efficient. * Every single one of our ancestors did keto because their environment forced them into it. * Once you achieve metabolic freedom and flexibility, your body can actually manufacture glucose from the fat and from protein. [18:20] Is Omega-6 Bad For You? * Omega-6 isn’t bad for you; processed omega-6 is bad for you. * Omega-6 has the same oxygen-binding capacity as hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is also intimately bound to the cell membrane; so, they work well together. * After people take the proper amount of omega-6, they feel better. Plus, they will be able to feel it fast. [21:10] The Issue With Fish Oil * Fish oil is high in EPA and DHA. They're what we call unsaturated are much more unstable. * Not only is fish oil too unstable for us, it's not really needed in very large quantities. * As it turns out, the brain only uses about seven and a half milligrams per day of EPA and DHA. * People on a high dose of fish oil will have a problem with nose bleeds – it’s an obvious example of fluidity. * If you overload yourself with fish oil, the mitochondria is only half as efficient as it should be. [34:55] Is Eating Fish Bad Too? * You can certainly eat fish. When you cook it, you're destroying the fats anyways. * It's the deepwater fish that are higher in EPA and DHA. * Fish have a lot of good nutrition in it unless it's been contaminated with heavy metals and stuff. In Japan, where they eat mostly raw fish, they do have higher rates of hemorrhagic strokes. * Fish that have fewer heavy metals are ones with a fast turnover like sardines. Tuna is a bad one because tuna will eat a lot of other fish and is lower on the food chain. [39:45] About Pure Form * Pure Form Omega® Natural is an organic, plant-based, fish-free, cold-pressed, source of omega-6 and omega-3 essential fatty acids. * It has been processed in a way that retains all the functions of the fat. * It is a proprietary formulation made up of primrose oil, sunflower seed oil, pumpkin seed oil, and organic extra virgin coconut oil. These are all excellent sources of essential omega-6, along with organic flaxseed oil for essential omega-3, to obtain what we consider the ideal omega 3-6 combination. [45:25] Good vs. Bad Sunflower Oil * If you look at the average sunflower oil, even organic sunflower oil that's on the shelf, it's not cold-pressed. Heat and oxygen are bad for fats. * When you do cold pressure, you actually lose about 20% of the oil. * You can put a processed oil on the shelf for years; it'll look the same. [51:20] Hangover Prevention * Since the brain is 70% fat, you put all the good fats in the brain, you don't get headaches. * Just another reason to love Pure Form Omega®. * However, most people will feel a little tired the next day because alcohol disturbs your sleep pattern. Luckily, you won't have the headache and all the other stuff that accompanies those hangovers. AND MUCH MORE!

What should someone with FH eat if they also have prediabetes? | Masterjohn Q&A Files #208
Question: What should someone with FH eat if they also have prediabetes? So first of all, it's a separable component of the diet so you need a low-saturated fat, low-cholesterol diet without necessarily eating a low-fat diet. Then second of all, the effect of that on blood lipids is dependent on the healthfulness of your insulin pathway. And so over time, that's something where you can play the balance between those two things and as you improve your blood glucose handling, you can fit in more carbohydrates to have a fuller dietary effect. For managing blood glucose, and I don't think it's a good idea to condemn all carbohydrates as a means of managing that. I think the best thing would be to get a continuous glucose monitor or a regular glucose monitor. If you're using a regular glucose monitor, use 30 minute, one hour, two hour, three hour, four hour time intervals after a meal and collect a baseline before a meal and look at how do different starches that you don't have an immunological response to... so you don't have to test grains because you don't tolerate them, but other foods that are rich in starches, whether it's carrots, or potatoes, or sweet potatoes, or whatever it is.

TMHS 461: Psychosomatic Effects Of COVID-19, Lack Of Transparency, & Dangerous Outcomes
“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.” -Alice Walker Over the past year, a lot has changed. Many of us have had to pivot our work situations, how we educate our children, and how we connect with our loved ones. Some folks have struggled to make ends meet and lost access to important outlets like gyms and therapists. Even worse, some people have experienced loss. Pandemic fatigue has set in, leaving many people feeling exhausted, burnt out, and pushed to their limits.

Most importantly, you’re going to learn what you can actually do to protect your health and minimize your risk of infections. I hope this episode emboldens you to take authority and responsibility over your own health. Because at the end of the day, you are the most qualified person to take care of you. In this episode you’ll discover: * What a psychosomatic condition is. * How stress and fear can actually change our biology. * What psychoneuroimmunology is. * The impact that psychological stress can have on the immune system. * How immune cell activity can improve by walking. * The link between preexisting conditions and COVID-19 deaths. * What endemic means. * The importance of optimizing our immune system so it can work as intended. * How the pandemic has affected mental health in children. * The connection between mood disorders and COVID-19 risk. * What a nocebo effect is. * How effective placebos generally are, and why it matters. * The importance of activating your lymphatic system through exercise. * How meditation can increase your natural killer cells. * The role sleep plays in the function of the immune system. * Why the pandemic has been politicized, and why that’s a problem. * How science gets oversimplified in the media. * Examples of science being suppressed. * What you need to know about observational studies. * The negative side effects of wearing a mask. * What happens to a mask’s efficacy when exposed to moisture. * The importance of taking responsibility for our own health.

Top 12 Foods to Balance Your Blood Sugar
"If you’re looking for a way to boost focus, memory, and mental clarity, mushrooms might be exactly what you’re looking for. Certain mushrooms contain a medicinal quality called beta-glucans. A 2012 review on products containing beta-glucans found they can help to naturally increase energy, reduce confusion, boost mood, improve recall and memory, and increase vigor.

Insights on Testosterone, Libido, and Sexual Function (Breather Episode with Brad)
*Don’t let the title of this show make you think this episode is mainly for male listeners: you will learn a lot about sexual function and libido that is relevant for women as well.* I’ve really been diving deep into research as I work on writing my new book about testosterone function and delaying the aging process, and I have already discovered so many compelling insights that I’ll be sharing some of them with you today. You will learn what it is about *visceral fat* that makes it so harmful to the body, and also why it becomes a slippery slope that is hard to escape once you add a little bit of this kind of fat to your body. Did you know belly fat is actually classified as an endocrine *organ of its own* because of the inflammatory chemicals it secretes? This also puts your system in a constant state of inflammation, which inhibits testosterone production and a whole host of other issues relating to metabolic health. And, this all leads to even more belly fat accumulation! And when you have too much belly fat, any testosterone your body is making (or receiving through supplementation) will actually be converted into estrogen. You’ll also learn about the connection between working out too much and libido levels and the importance of napping. Training yourself to unplug and actually shut your brain down is such an important practice to commit to making daily. Remember the goal is not to fall asleep but to rest and check out. If you have trouble falling asleep or feeling really rested, use a blindfold to help your body relax, and your mind will follow. I also share the Taoist theory that posits that (for males) orgasms deplete your essential life force and the importance of preserving them. The idea is to have sex frequently, but not ejaculate frequently. But interestingly, Taoists believe frequent orgasms have the opposite effect on females! Read The Tao of Health, Sex, and Longevity: A Modern Practical Guide to the Ancient Way ( https://www.amazon.com/Tao-Health-Sex-Longevity-Practical/dp/067164811X ) for more info. My shows ( https://www.bradkearns.com/2019/01/21/wendywalsh-2/ ) with Dr. Wendy Walsh are also a great resource to check out on this topic. *TIMESTAMPS:* Both women and men, let's talk about testosterone libido and sexual health. Is there something we can do besides taking medications? [01:49] The first and foremost symptom of trouble is the spare tire. Belly fat is inflammatory and puts you in a state of chronic or systemic inflammation. [04:15] Surprisingly libido and testosterone do not have a direct relationship that we’ve always assumed. [08:09] Teach yourself how to relax, and then you will optimize your sexual health. [09:36] Taoism believes women should have as many orgasms as possible. This is the opposite for the male. [14:46] There are three energy sources: Qi, Shen, and Jing. [15:36] It is a much different story for females in the society of thousands of years ago. [16:32] It takes about 72 hours for sperm and seminal fluid to regenerate. [19:24] In modern society, the female is in a different role and can easily deplete her hormone balance. [21:41] The Taoists want males to withhold their orgasms frequently. [22:28] Science differs from the Taoist theory. Many studies talk about frequency of once a week as being the maximum. [27:44] Pornography is a real problem leading people to believe they are having real sex and interfering with their hormone stabilization. [29:12] Testosterone is not directly connected to libido. [30:59] We must get that life stress and balance and give yourself a fighting chance at being a good lover here with your partner. Develop a sense of humor. [33:26] Supplements: A lot of these products are actually targeting libido rather than testosterone. [38:34] The topic of testosterone replacement therapy has produced some highly disturbing statistics. Look at lifestyle changes first.
