TMHS 454: The Surprising Truth About Thyroid Health & The Thyroid Reset Diet - With Dr. Alan Christianson
In recent years, rates of thyroid disease have skyrocketed. And when you think about it, it’s really no surprise. When it comes to managing our health, the thyroid is a relatively overlooked piece of the puzzle. This small but mighty butterfly-shaped organ controls a multitude of functions in the body, including metabolism, tissue repair, hormone production, and more. Because the thyroid controls so many mechanisms in the body, a malfunctioning thyroid can cause symptoms like weight gain, fatigue, inflammation, and memory loss. While there’s a lack of accessible information about thyroid health, there’s also a lot of misinformation out there. In his new book, The Thyroid Reset Diet, Dr. Alan Christianson shares his latest research on thyroid health and strategies for restoring thyroid function. On today’s show, he’s sharing incredible insights from his research including statistics on thyroid disease, what you need to know about iodine consumption, and real solutions for regaining thyroid health. Enjoy! In this episode you’ll discover: * What the thyroid gland is, and what it’s responsible for in the body. * The role that iodine plays in the function of the thyroid. * What the two chemical forms of iodine are. * How much iodine you need for optimal thyroid function. * Why you won’t find iodine listed on food labels. * What can happen if you consume too much iodine. * Why thyroid disease rates have roughly tripled in the last few decades. * What a thyroid storm is, and the only way to cure it. * The three different types of thyroid diseases. * Why iodine is like bleach. * How the autoimmune disease, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, occurs. * The three big drivers of thyroid disease. * What you need to know about iodine hiding in your personal care products. * Real food sources of iodine. * Why exercise is a key component of thyroid health.

Ben Got COVID (& What He Did About It), How To Fix Issues With Your Brain, The "God Cap" For Neurofeedback, Do Home Neurofeedback Devices Work & More With Dr. Andrew Hill.
bengreenfieldfitness.com/peakbrainpodcast Special Announcement: In the beginning of this episode, I describe how I got COVID and what I did about it. Enjoy!       Back in 2017, I visited the Peak Brain Institute in Los Angeles, California for a special type of advanced brain scan and brain mapping system called a quantified electroencephalography, or "QEEG", and I was shocked at what they discovered in my brain.     Dr. Andrew Hill, my guest on today's show, oversaw the entire mapping protocol. Dr. Hill, a UCLA trained cognitive neuroscientist, lecturer, discovered what he described as some pretty severe patterns of excess stressful beta waves, excess theta waves, and excess delta waves in my brain.     What's that mean, exactly? Basically, it suggests that I had some history of concussions and traumatic brain injury (which I indeed have had, in everything from football to mountain biking to kickboxing), as well as built-up deficits of attention, increased distractibility, limited sleep potential and less-than-optimal cognitive performance from life, travel, toxins, head injuries and beyond.     Two months after the scan, I hopped on a plane back to LA, and ventured back into the Peak Brain Institute for three days of intensive training to fix my brain, returning to Spokane with a briefcase packed with a laptop, electrodes, conducting gel, and everything I needed to use neurofeedback to fix my brain. The next three months I trained for 30 minutes every other day using a style of neurofeedback I can best describe as "meditation on steroids". Mostly, my protocol involved flying a spaceship with my mind. Each time my brain subconsciously shifted into brainwave patterns considered to be unfavorable, the spaceship would stop flying and the music generated by the neurofeedback software would fade away, very much like a cognitive "slap on the wrist".     So how exactly does neurofeedback work? Technically, it's a non-invasive form of what is known in the medical industry as "central nervous system biofeedback". It trains the brain to develop new resources by encouraging certain areas to raise or lower the amplitude and ratios of particular brainwaves. To a very large extent, and unlike peripheral biofeedback such as practicing a physical exercise like a handstand, neurofeedback is an entirely non-voluntary process in which you are shaping the brain giving the brain feedback only when it's doing certain things. Professional clinicians report that about 90% of users notice a significant positive impact from this style of training, and it can be used for everything from decreasing anxiety and stress to inducing faster sleep onset to even resetting tolerance to marijuana and alcohol.     Neurofeedback training simply involves the placement of electrodes on the scalp, which produces a signal then picked up by an EEG amplifier. These signals are fed into software that then sends back to the user some form of visual and/or auditory "feedback" or reward. This reward stimulus is given when the brain produces desired brainwave changes in amplitude or frequency.     Unlike many books and magazines would have you to believe, this type of protocol is slightly risky, and not just something you download a free neurofeedback app to do. Neurofeedback is a powerful tool and every brain is different, so the single most crucial aspect of neurofeedback training is selecting the proper protocol. Although the QEEG provides crucial information about one person's brain, the training plan itself needs to be adaptive and iterative, based upon how someone responds to the training, which is why it's important to have the entire testing and training process overseen by a neurofeedback practitioner. Heck, when I did my three months of training with the Peak Brain Institute, Dr. Hill and I were text and email buddies nearly every day.     Neurofeedback can produce side...

#189: How to Live on Purpose with Antonio Neves
Do you ever find yourself just going along on autopilot, not stopping to think what you’re doing or why you’re doing it? Do you ever forget why you agreed to a meeting or project, or wonder how you got to where you are in life right now?  On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host Dhru talks to Antonio Neves, an internationally recognized leadership speaker, author, and award-winning journalist. He is the author of three books, and his latest book, Stop Living On Autopilot: Take Responsibility for Your Life and Rediscover a Bolder, Happier You, was just released. On his podcast The Best Thing, Antonio talks with leaders about the best thing to happen to them that would never appear on a resume.

Antonio is a graduate of Western Michigan University and holds a master’s degree from Columbia University.    In this episode, Dhru and Antonio talk about how to own your past and accept where you are today so you can move forward. They discuss the importance of getting the right advice from friends, and why statements like “Don’t worry, it’s never too late,” or “Maybe it wasn’t meant to be,” can be harmful. They also talk about how to be an active player in your own life and start living on your own terms and why what you do when no one is watching will determine your success or failure in life.    In this episode, we dive into:   -What living on autopilot looks like (2:26)  -Antonio’s personal transformation journey (4:39) -Why we must believe the best is ahead, and that the “best thing” hasn’t happened yet (15:15)  -Taking inventory of the last 30 days of your life (26:26) -How to get clear on what you want (38:59) -Why your dreams have an expiration (49:20) -The value of having honest friendships in your life (57:02) -The importance of not just committing, but recommitting everyday to what is most important to you (1:05:45) -Why people give up on their dreams (1:11:56) -The stories we have yet to accept in our lives (1:17:04)  For more on Antonio Neves you can follow him on Instagram @TheAntonioNeves, on Facebook @TheAntonioNeves, on Twitter @TheAntonioNeves, on YouTube @TheAntonioNeves, and through his website https://theantonioneves.com/.

Keto Savage Robert Sikes | This is how you build muscle on the keto diet KKP: 227
Today, I am blessed to have here with me a lifetime natural competitive bodybuilder, Robert Orion Sikes. Robert started Keto Savage to help motivate and educate others about the importance of following your passions and getting the results you want. Robert wakes up early, he works his A@$ off, and he sees results. Robert is no different than you; any success he has experienced this far is attainable for anybody willing to put in the work. We live in an era where everything is automatic, everything is superficial, and everything is expected for nothing. That life does not create greatness; it destroys it. The Keto Savage site will empower those who crave intensity, dedication, discipline, hard work, and sacrifice. In this episode, Robert Orion Sikes reveals the inspiration behind his brand, Keto Savage. As one of the first keto bodybuilders, Robert knew he needed to document his journey. Robert has been in ketosis for six years; he explains how he stays so disciplined. When you love what you do, it’s easy to say disciplined. So, learn how to love keto foods and to do amazing things for your body. Tune in as we speak about Robert’s Keto Brick, how to break a plateau, and we talk about big tech censorship. / / E P I S O D E S P ON S O R S PureForm Omega Plant Based Oils (Best Alternative to Fish Oil): http://www.purelifescience.com Use ben4 for $4.00 off. ☕️ Purity Coffee: http//:www.ketokampcoffee.com, use ketokamp at checkout for 10% off [00:30] About Robert Orion Sikes * As a bodybuilder, Robert was shredded, but he sacrificed his health. * He developed eating disorders that left him in a dark place. * Plus, Robert fell into a deep debt; he got depressed and suicidal. * So, Robert tried keto. His cravings went away, and he felt much better. * Everyone at the gym would tell Robert that he couldn’t get big on carbs. However, Robert went fully keto, and he still competed as a bodybuilder. Robert has looked back since. [05:45] How Robert Will Stay Disciplined * The secret to Robert’s discipline is loving the process. * You can’t become a bodybuilder overnight; it takes years and years of weightlifting. * The more you work at something, the better you get. * Bodybuilding involves an obsessive amount of discipline. As long as you embrace it, then you will find success. [07:45] What To Know When Starting Keto * Know your “why” and understand what drives you. * Also, knowing your “why” will help if you have a long-term view of what you want to accomplish. That way, you’ll be excited about what you do every single day. * Getting healthy isn’t a good enough “why.” Instead, your “why” should be about the people in your life. You owe it to your family to stay healthy. [11:50] About The Keto Brick * The Keto Brick sold out in two minutes. * The bricks are great for backpacking, hunting, and running. The brick is 1,000 calories with 90 grams of fat. * Every ingredient has the purpose of optimizing your performance. * The momentum and support for Robert’s Keto Bricks keep coming. * Keto products should not have seed oils or any sweeteners. * If there are more protein and carbs than fat, then that isn’t keto. * Get Keto Bricks: https://www.ketobrick.com [19:15] Building Muscle On Keto * If you are implementing progressive overload and increasing your training, you will build muscle in the context of being in a caloric surplus. * Fuel your growth through adequate calories. * Within eight days, Robert will hit each muscle group twice. * Robert doesn’t do a ton of cardio. He likes to run as a meditative type of exercise. * If you’re doing cardio, do it after your strength training. Use it as a cool down rather than a warmup. [24:00] How To Break A Plateau * Many women chronically undereat. Their metabolic baseline has been so down-regulated that there’s not much room for them to improve. * So, women need to upregulate their metabolism. * Trying a calorie surplus will help upregulate your metabolism. * When you have a calorie surplus, that doesn’t mean you can eat whatever you want. * Having a cheat meal will have negative psychological effects. Instead, focus on desiring things that will improve your wellbeing. * Keto flexing will help your good cells get stronger. [33:20] About Big Tech Censorship * Robert is doubling-down on his own website. * He is revamping the entire website so big tech will not censor his macro content. * That way, he won’t have to rely on social platforms to be his end-all be-all.

Make your health an act of rebellion. Join The Healthy Rebellion Please Subscribe and Review: Apple Podcasts | RSS Submit your questions for the podcast here Show Notes: News topic du jour: Reaction of Human Monoclonal Antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 Proteins With Tissue Antigens: Implications for Autoimmune Diseases 1. Vitamin D while pregnant [27:55] Lori says: Hi Robb and Nikki! I have heard you mention in the past that you are a proponent for using tanning beds to improve vitamin D levels. I have also found this to be helpful at keeping my levels up in the winter months and have seen big improvements at fighting off the winter blues. However, I am pregnant so I am curious if this is a huge "no" and I need to only rely on my supplement? The supplement alone has never been enough to keep me out of the lull in mood that I experience in the winter. I am currently in my first trimester of pregnancy. I have Native American heritage, so I am fairly dark complected and do not burn easily. I live in Texas which may be slightly better for UV exposure, but work 5 days a week indoors so it is guaranteed that during the winter my sunlight exposure plummets. Should I just suck it up and deal with the mood and only take a supplement? Or would a couple days a week of tanning bed be ok to get me through the next few months during my first and second trimester? Thanks for your input! 2. Fungus and Mycotoxins [32:17] Sean says: I have been following you guys for many years now, listened to All your podcast episodes (Paleo Solution up to Rebellion Radio)! I don’t remember you guys talking about the role Fungus (Candida) plays with all this metabolic disruption. Diabetes, Cancer, Arthritis, Alzheimer, Lupus… Perhaps we have a Ptolemy science understanding of metabolic disorders? I recently found “Know the Cause” ~ and Doug Kaufmann’s ideas on the subject, sorry but he has made me second guess what’s really going on. I'm curious how deep is this “mycotoxin” problem? I understand and generally tend to agree with you on the Bulletproof coffee is great marketing, but until I get definitive understanding of the real causal problems of Fungus in general...I remain neutral, smooth talking salesman must be scrutinized all times. However it’s the only “root cause” theory that I’ve heard that could make sense. Not the insulin resistance theory, which could be proved if we actually measure the insulin levels, before during and after, injecting mycotoxins into mice and rats to give them diabetes! Darn circular logic!! 3. Post workout insulin [37:04] Chris says: Hi Robb, I was wondering about post workout insulin Spike. Did the Bros have it right with spiking insulin post workout with high GI carbs to get more muscle? Or should we keep insulin on the low side so we don't get more fat? Thanks! 4. What to ask for to get the most impactful blood test [41:28] Nate says: Hi Robb and Nicki, I plan on getting a blood test through my doctor. I'm guessing all blood tests are not created equal. So do I simply ask for a "blood test", or do I ask for a blood test that measures "xyz"? And if the ladder, what would be your "xyz" to get measured? And also please provide an optimal range for each. [More info below if it is helpful] For context on what I'm personally looking to accomplish: I'm a 33 year old male, been off and on with Keto for years, Keto is my holy grail for getting back to my prime condition (following your Keto Masterclass regimen of higher protein, adequate sodium, and not-so-crazy-on-the-fat has been the most effective and enjoyable way for me). I've been fully back on a good Keto regimen for two months now. I'm 5 10, weigh 210 lbs, but muscular, at around 12-17% body fat. I (thankfully) seem to put on muscle fairly easy from heavy, slow, and low rep weight lifting 1-2 times a week. However I'm still working to get this tire of fat off of my hips/waste. Other than that the rest of my body seems lean and muscular. My general Keto Mojo numbers are as follows: Ketones: 1.4-2.4 mmol/L. Blood glucose: 76-85mg/dl upon waking and I manage to stay in the 90s even after eating. And whatever these two things are: HTC 25-45% Hb: 8-14% I want to see in my blood work where I fall on the scale of optimal health while on Keto, so that I can spot problem areas or deficiencies. As I'm approaching my mid 30s I know testosterone is one thing I'd like to have tested, as I have felt like it has decreased (which I know you've mentioned happens when someone dives right into keto and weightlifting after being a chub). So, what would you ask your doctor to test for in a blood test? And what numbers (ranges) would you be absolutely thrilled to receive back from the test? Absolutely love the Q&A format. Longtime fan since 2012, books, Keto Masterclass, Podcast. I hope you and Nicki continue with this format. The episodes help me look forward to being successful on my diet. https://precisionhealthreports.com/ there is special pricing for healthy rebellion members - just one more reason to join THR :) 5. Calcium supplementation on a carnivore diet. [45:16] Saul says: Hey Robb, discovered your show listening to Paul Saladino podcast and I am loving it! Every time I learn something new, thanks so much for what you do! You are also a libertarian, that is freaking amaxzing! Hahaha Also love your interactions with Nikki! 🤣🤣🤣 So a bit of context, I am 29years old, 150 pounds 5'8" , I follow a carnivore diet with honey, I eat 500g meat a day, 2 ounces of liver, some whey post workout and I do greek yogurt to get calcium in my diet. I also take vit D and boron. I read that calcium is essential to produce melatonin and I noticed that when I dont consume greek yogurt or any other dairy, I tend to wake up in the middle of night and when I do consume, i sleep very well. So I was listening to your podcast last week when you said that there is a huge difference between grassfed and grainfed dairy. I would like to let it go of the dairy just for a test and since here where I live, in Portugal, grassfed dairy are way more expensive than grainfed dairy and I still want to have calcium at my diet, I would like to know what are your thoughts on calcium supplementation, is there any form that is safe? Paul said that calcium citrate is not a good idea because it can cause heart and kidney malfunction. He suggested for me to do bone broth, but I am a graduate student and every bit of time that I can save, I do so bone broth is kind inconvenient. Thank you so much!

Brian Sanders - Filmmaker of Food Lies & Health Coach
Part 113 - Ben Pakulski on How to Overcome Your Genetics (and Past), the Most Efficient Way to Build Muscle, and How to Eat
Welcome back everyone! I’m Brian Sanders and this is Peak Human - the podcast where you start back at episode 1! I met Ben at our Toronto MeatUp in 2019 and really like him - maybe it’s because he eats pretty similar to how I do - 2 Sapien meals per day of mostly animal foods and low anti-nutrient plant foods on the side. Seriously though he’s really great and has an awesome mindset on pretty much everything. Goes way beyond building muscle - which is important for absolutely everyone listening. It’s not about being a bodybuilder and we don’t talk much about that - it’s about effectively doing some kind of workout to carry some lean muscle mass which everyone needs and will benefit them as they age. His info is legit - I already have been getting a better workout since we recorded this episode last week. I took some of his advice and went slower, stayed under control and focused on the muscles I was trying to work and was sore the next for the first time. Gyms are still closed in LA so all I have is my living room yet I was still able to train my muscles hard in my little 15 min routine I do.

127: Dr. Anthony Jay - What Your Genes Can Tell You About Your Health Risks
You probably already know that your genes dictate things like your hair color, eye color, and how tall you are, but did you know they can also give you important details on your health risks for conditions like obesity and type 2 diabetes? And that’s just the beginning. As Dr. Anthony Jay, a best-selling author and lead researcher for the Mayo Clinic, shares in this episode, your genes can also clue you into a number of different health issues. They can tell you how your lifestyle can affect your health, what your risk factors are for chronic diseases, the best exercises to perform, and how you handle vitamins and hormonal issues, among other things. Dr. Jay also shows how modifying certain things can change the way your genes are affected and he shares all of this in this podcast episode. When you tune in, you’ll hear Dr. Jay go through Dr. Anthony Gustin’s genetic report to share what he should and shouldn’t do to mitigate his health risks and improve his overall health. Dr. Anthony Jay received his Ph.D in biochemistry from Boston University’s Medical School where he later went off to study Alzheimer’s disease, hormonal health, fats, and cholesterol. He then went on to become a lead researcher at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota where he spends his time studying epigenetics, infrared light, and stem cells. He also published a best-selling book titled, Estrogeneration: How Estrogenics Are Making You Fat, Sick, and Infertile, to show people how removing hormone disrupting chemicals from your life can improve your health. When you tune in, you’ll discover how it’s possible to improve your health by understanding your specific genes better. Check out the episode now to learn more!
