Why You Should Free Your Feet and Give Barefoot a Chance
1 hr 7 min
25% of the bones and joints in our bodies are located in your feet and ankles. We also have over 200,000 nerve endings on the sole of each foot. The athletic shoe industry would have us believe we need to wrap our feet in padding to protect them, but is that true? Science says not so much. On a recent episode of The Darin Olien Show, I sat down with Xero Shoes creator, Steven Sashen. Steven was a sprinter in high school, but went on hiatus for, well, 30 years. After picking up running again at 45, he was discouraged by how often he was injuring himself. Every week would come with a new pulled muscle or ankle strain. Then, a friend recommended going for a barefoot run. That’s when everything changed. “So I take off my shoes, I get out of the big thick motion-controlled padded shoes that everybody told me I had to wear, that most people wear,” Steven explained.  “And I was so fascinated, so enthralled with the experience of feeling the ground under my feet on all these different surfaces.” How Could Running Barefoot Possibly Work? Steven’s mind was blown after his very first barefoot run. 5K felt like a few yards. How was this possible? “If we think about it, human beings have been running, walking, hiking in the most nominal, minimalist footwear you can imagine for the history of human beings,” Steven mused. I mean it’s true, right? Our ancestors managed to create civilizations complete with massive stone temples and shrines wearing only thin sandals, or nothing at all on their feet. So why are we fed these lies that in order to run safely, we need padding? The simple answer? Marketing. Steven explained that what he calls “Big Shoe” is fueled primarily by money and recognition. “They’re all copycats,” Stephen says. Every time a shoe executive pushes a new sneaker idea, every other big shoe company follows suit. There’s a constant fear of falling behind and missing “the next big thing.” The Birth of a Company After the buzz of his first barefoot run wore off, Steven was left with a newfound inspiration to empower others to rediscover their feet. That’s how Xero Shoes was born. “All we’re doing, in a way, at Xero Shoes, is getting back to what people had been doing prior to the invention of the modern athletic shoe in the late 60s early 70s, for which there is zero evidence that it provides any benefit whatsoever”, Steven explains. He bases his shoe designs on proven science. Much of which is based on the work of Dr. Irene Davis and her research on natural movement. Besides science, there’s a lot of common sense involved. I mean, think about it, really think about it. If we have so many bones, joints, ligaments and nerve endings in our feet, how on earth would it be helpful to cover all those up? Steven uses a simple analogy to expand on this. “If you watch kids running, little kids, before they’ve been in regular shoes, in what we now think of as regular shoes, it’s amazing,” he says. “They have perfect running form. They land with their feet underneath their body. They’re not using too much energy, their body lean is just enough to move them forward.” Our bodies know how to run! We don’t need to “teach” them. Or to wrap up our body’s anchors in cushioning in order to protect ourselves. It’s so counterproductive, folks! Not only are athletic shoes inhibiting us physically, but they can also prevent our brains from making connections with the world around us. I’m talking about neural pathways. The Foot to Brain Connection Our brain uses our senses to make connections and learn about the environment we’re surrounded by. These neural pathways can be changed, or even cut off entirely, if we stop using certain parts of our body. By wrapping our feet in layers of heavy cushioning, we’re essentially preventing our brains from learning about the ground under our feet. “You just want to find as much variable stimulation as you possibly can, with whatever you’re doing,” Steven explains.

Q&A: Volume When Cutting, Training by Muscle Fiber Type, and Best Tip for 40+ Lifters
I’ve churned through over 150,000 emails, social media comments and messages, and blog comments in the last 6 years. And that means I’ve fielded a ton of questions. As you can imagine, some questions pop up more often than others, and I thought it might be helpful to take a little time every month to choose a few and record and share my answers. So, in this round, I answer the following three questions: * “Why should we not reduce the amount of weightlifting volume that we’re doing when we cut because you don’t need as much volume to maintain muscle as you do to gain muscle, and when you’re at deficit, you’re not going to gain muscle.” * “Are there different ways to train different types of muscle fibers to gain muscle and strength faster?” * “What one piece of advice would you give for continuing exercise through your 40s and older?” If you have a question you’d like me to answer, leave a comment below or if you want a faster response, send an email to mike@muscleforlife.com.

TMHS 445: What Is Stress And Fear Doing To Our Immune Systems? With Dr. Bruce Lipton
At this time in human history, we’re more stressed than ever. We know that chronic stress leads to a myriad of health problems, including a lowered immune system and increased susceptibility to infections. So how do we break out of this negative cycle and create real change that will lead to longer, healthier lives? It starts with taking control over our minds. When we’re driven by fear and anxiety, the capacity and strength of our immune system becomes undermined. But when we recognize our innate ability to create our reality, we become stronger, healthier, and more empowered. There’s no one better suited to speak on the topic of the mind-body connection than Dr. Bruce Lipton. Dr. Lipton is a stem cell biologist, bestselling author, and an internationally recognized thought leader. On today’s show, he’s sharing the powerful science behind how your beliefs inform the expression of your genetics, how to optimize your immune function, and the pertinent steps you need to take in order to change your health outcomes. Enjoy! In this episode you’ll discover: * The shocking amount of money that is wasted in our healthcare system. * What epigenetics is. * The definition of genetic determinism, and how it works. * How changing your beliefs can actually alter your genetics. * The role that your nervous system plays in genetic expression. * What percentage of disease is controlled by genes. * How stress interferes with the immune system. * Three fundamental things that shift when the body is under stress. * What percentage of Americans have chronic diseases. * How the human body creates immunity. * Four behaviors you need to practice to protect your immune system. * Which two vitamins you should take daily. * The role of the tonsils (and why babies put everything in their mouths). * A link between quantum physics and epigenetics.

What is more beautiful than a being that knows itself? In this uplifting and inspiring episode @SriMati investigates her deeply held belief that you are the one you’ve been waiting for. In this epoch dominated by patriarchal, intellectual societies we are forever trying to reach a consensus on what is right and what is wrong. Yet if we examine creation through the lens of Ayurveda we understand that we are each unique. There is not another one of us in the entire multiverse. Therefore how could we possibly know what is right for anyone else? Julie’s life mission is to help us expand into the understanding that if we don’t receive ourselves as divine, then no one else is going to do it for us. No one! So it’s time to get real with who we are, take responsibility for our own divine blueprint and step joyfully into our fullest life experience. EPISODE LINKS.... Christmas is coming!

Understanding the Hormones that Produce Results from Exercise
Hormones influence a number of different cellular functions, however, they only interact with specific receptor sites. Hormones control physiological functions including: energy metabolism - how the food we eat gets turned into muscle activity (i.e. burning fat), reproductive processes, mood (and overall mental state) and muscle growth, specifically the process of muscle protein synthesis. This Quick Fit Tip identifies important hormones your body produces in response to exercise; understanding how exercise influences the hormones that control physiological functions can help you identify the best exercises for your goals.

#174: What If It’s Not Depression with Dr. Achina Stein
More than 60 million Americans are affected by mental health issues every year. While the conventional medicine approach focuses on balancing neurotransmitters in the brain through medication, the Functional Medicine approach is to look for the root cause. There’s a saying in Functional Medicine, “fire in the gut, fire in the brain.” If you have inflammation, or dysbiosis in the gut, then it’s going to produce an inflammatory response that in turn affects the brain.  On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host Dhru talks to Dr. Achina Stein, an osteopathic physician and board-certified psychiatrist. She is certified by the American Board of Integrative and Holistic Medicine and is a certified practitioner of the Institute for Functional Medicine. Dr. Stein has extensive experience working with children and adults who have chronic and persistent mental health problems in the community at large, in the prison population, and in a geriatric inpatient setting. Dr. Stein is a Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association, and received the NAMI-RI Exemplary Psychiatrist Award in 2008. She is presently in private practice in Rhode Island, and is the author of the book, What If It’s Not Depression? In this episode, Dr. Stein shares her story of discovering Functional Medicine while searching for answers to her son’s mental health crisis. He suffered from acute depression and suicidal ideation. He was stabilized on three medications and was “out of the woods” in terms of safety, but he wasn’t the same as before the episode. He was still suffering from some debilitating symptoms and had side effects from the medication. Dhru and Dr. Stein discuss the Functional Medicine approach to addressing depression and other mental health disorders. They also talk about the connection between autoimmune conditions and gut health. In this episode, we dive into:  -Dr. Stein’s son’s health crisis (2:50)  -Celiac disease and brain fog (14:58) -How long it took to notice a shift in her son’s health after taking a Functional Medicine approach (17:50) -What Dr. Stein did to turn around her own health (23:26)  -The connection between gut health and autoimmune conditions (26:19) -The 5 R’s of Gut Restoration (34:55) -The inspiration behind Dr. Stein’s book, What If It’s Not Depression? (36:21)  -Dr. Stein’s assessments for discovering the root cause of symptoms (44:51) -Where listeners can learn more about Dr. Achina Stein (51:26) For more on Dr. Achina Stein visit her website https://fxnmind.com/.

Upgrade your health by changing the foods you eat with Matthew Nagra, ND
In *Episode 113* I sit down with *Naturopathic Doctor Matthew Nagra* to talk about how he uses evidence based nutrition science to help his patients upgrade their health.

Particularly if you like the more in-depth science episodes. *In this episode we talk about:* * The latest EPIC-Oxford study on bone health * The health advantages that people have who adopt plant-predominant or exclusive dietary patterns * Naturopathy as a form of health care * How Dr Nagra helps his patients make sustainable changes * Common questions Dr Nagra gets from patients (Including questions about protein, soy, lectins, cooking oils etc) * His personal food philosophy * LDL-Cholesterol being an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease and his thoughts on the carnivore diet * Important nutrients and supplements for people reducing their consumption of animal foods * A new study on iodine status in Norwegian pescatarians, vegetarians and vegans. * and much more *RESOURCES:* *Website to full studies in full for free:* Sci-hub.st *Bone Health:* 1 - New EPIC-Oxford study: https://bmcmedicine.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s12916-020-01815-3 2 - How we know this study failed to properly adjust for BMI and calcium intake. Twos studies below show the risk of fracture at varying BMI’s and levels of calcium intake. In the EPIC-Oxford study the researchers adjusted for the wrong part of the risk curve.
