The Danger Of 'Shrooms, Eating & Supplementing "Seasonally", Whether Lectins Are Really Bad For You & Much More With Dr. Anthony Beck!
I have several friends who I would consider to be VIP's, bigwigs, and leading authorities in the field of health and biohacking. Although I will respectfully keep those friends anonymous, I've noted that a relatively large majority of them have one specific man who serves as their personal physician, and he's the same guy who advises some of the world's top military personnel, Spartans, strongmen competitors and obstacle racers. That man is Dr. Anthony Beck, and he's my guest on today's podcast. As a physician who has practiced Functional Medicine for over 20 years and backed by 10’s of thousands of patient encounters, Dr. Anthony G. Beck doesn’t merely manage diseases ~ he helps people resolve them. Dr. Beck has earned 4 national medical board certifications, is the founder and chief medical officer for Balance Protocol Institute, is the founder and CEO of Helion Nutraceuticals and provides philanthropic care for combat veterans through groups such as Warrior Angles Foundation, Millennium TBI Network and Task Force Dagger Foundation. With extensive education in many clinical disciplines such as Functional Medicine, clinical nutrition, systems biology, epigenetics and nutrigenomics, he takes a dynamic approach to assessing, educating, and working with his patients to achieve their highest levels of wellbeing. Dr. Beck’s programs involve a full array of aspects including optimizing ones environment of (air, water, light, sound, EMF), healthful lifestyle design, individualized nutrition, hormone balancing, resolving immune dysfunction, identifying hidden infectious diseases, as well as leveraging extensive laboratory and functional testing to assist patients to determine their biochemical individuality. Even more importantly, Dr. Beck wants to empower patients to demand a higher level of care from their health care providers. So not only is Dr. Beck a wealth of knowledge on advanced health tactics, medical testing, and the combination of biohacking and exercise performance, but he's also the mastermind behind a hydration tactic I've personally been experimenting with: a tiny hydration invention called Oral I.V. - which we explore in great detail in the episode "The Physician Who Personally Advises The World's Leading Health Authorities, And His Tiny Invention That Pro Athletes Swear By." Lately, Dr. Beck has been quite pesky and informative on my own Facebook page - on topics about everything from mushrooms to methylation - so I figured I'd invite him on the show to take a deep dive into some of these controversial topics he has a unique perspective on, including: Psychedelics Lectins Energy Medicine Devices Dietary waters vs pH effect on body EMF devices for health and their consequences During our discussion, you'll discover: -Anthony's fascinating morning routine that includes near infrared, far infrared and photobiomodulation...
