#223 Anti-Aging Gene Therapy - Liz Parish
Play • 50 min

Welcome to the Siim Land Podcast I’m your host Siim Land and our guest today is Liz Parish. Liz is the founder and CEO of BioViva. Which is a company committed to extending human lifespan using techniques such as gene and cell technologies. Liz Parrish became the first person worldwide to take dual gene therapies for treating aging.

This episode is brought to you by BiOptimizers Magnesium Breakthrough. Magnesium is one of the most important minerals in your body and it’s involved in hundreds of processes, starting with energy production and ending with cognition. Magnesium deficiency increases the risk of insulin resistance and cardiovascular disease. What’s worse, up to 70-80% of people are not getting enough magnesium because our food contains about 25% magnesium than a few decades ago. I think magnesium is one of the few nutrients almost everyone would need more of. That’s why I use Magnesium Breakthrough that contains 7 of the main magnesium types. It’s the most full spectrum magnesium supplement out there. Head over to the show notes of this episode at siimland.com/223 to get a link for a 10% discount off Magnesium Breakthrough.

Part 115 - Dr. Cate Shanahan & Tucker Goodrich on the True Cause of Disease and How We Know This
Today is a special show that I really enjoyed with 2 guests - Dr. Cate Shanahan and Tucker Goodrich. I had Tucker on years ago for episode 20 and he laid out the entire case against seed oils which was very compelling. Dr. Cate has been on twice already (more recently) and is a wealth of knowledge on many, many things, especially the dangers of seed oils and reinforcing the Sapien diet concepts. We cover how people get fat & sick all the way down to the mitochondrial level. We discuss the different players in this process including seed oils (or more specifically excess amounts of omega-6), refined grains, and sugar. We also do my favorite thing and look at all sides of the arguments. We use an article a seed oil supporter wrote as a tool to check in on the studies and claims cited. You won’t want to miss this one! It’s a long one, but we cover a lot, and there’s a bunch of great new info. This podcast is made possible by my company Nose to Tail where we offer nutrient dense, whole foods delivered to you.

Join The Healthy Rebellion Please Subscribe and Review: Apple Podcasts | RSS Submit your questions for the podcast here Show Notes: News topic du jour: Green tea extract only affects markers of oxidative status postprandially: lasting antioxidant effect of flavonoid-free diet* In conclusion, GTE incorporated into meat patties in doses realistic for addition to processed foods only leads to a short-term change in plasma antioxidant capacity and has no long-term effects on oxidation parameters within the blood or urine compartments in smokers or in non-smokers. The study can therefore be seen as a 10 weeks controlled study with dietary depletion of all food antioxidants derived from fruits and vegetables, except for carrots and potatoes. During the depletion we observed a decrease in oxidative damage to proteins, DNA, and lipids, concomitantly with a major reduction in plasma ascorbate and minor changes in other vitamins and in anti- oxidant enzyme activities. We speculate that these seem- ingly positive effects on oxidative status are partly due to depletion of some pro-oxidant compounds co-existing with vitamin C in fruits and vegetables and this underlines the general lack of solid knowledge of the mechanisms by which a diet rich in fruits and vegetables cause a decrease in the risk of chronic diseases. 1. Potassium intake as it relates to Insulin resistance, metabolic disorders and NAFLD [22:41] Deirdre says: Hi Robb, I stumbled upon a couple of journals that state there is a link between hypokalemia and IR, metabolic disorders and NAFLD, of which I have (all of them). I have a difficult time losing weight, even when following healthy eating to a T. I've been tracking my food on myfitnesspal for a month, and upon reflection, I'm not getting NEARLY enough potassium every day. Sodium doesn't seem to be an issue. I salt my food pretty well. I do magnesium soaks once or twice a week. Can you touch on this subject a bit more, and maybe make some recommendations on how to hit that 4700 mg mark for potassium daily? Even with eating a large amount of veggies and protein, it's still a difficult number to hit. Dried herbs like chervil, parsley, basil and tarragon seem to be my best bets, but it's difficult to get 100g of dried herbs in a day. LOL. Thanks, Deidre 1/2lb steak 800mg 1 avocado 1,000mg 1oz nuts 200mg 2. Hormone Replacement Therapy - Good? Bad? [27:22] Marianna says: I'm a 69 YO. I'm a post menopausal female, who a little over a year ago started HRT about 18 months ago. I used bio identical HRT for the first 7 years after menopause then in keeping with recommendations went off it for about 11 years. My goal in retirement is to be as mentally and physically healthy as possible for as long as I possibly can. I'm quite active, exercise daily including cardio and strength training with yoga thrown in. Through IF and low carb eating I've recently lost 25 pounds and am5'6" and 155 lbs. The HRT I 'm using is administered via bio identical pellets every 4th month with oral progesterone taken daily. My decision to go back to HRT was prompted by reading Avrum Blooming's book Estrogen Matters. It was recently reinforced by reading Lisa Mosconi's book The XX Brain. Now finally to my question! Am I doing myself harm or good or just wasting my money (I can afford it) by seeking HRT at my age? As far as noticeable health benefits the main thing I notice is my skin looks a lot better. Effect of menopausal hormone therapy on components of the metabolic syndrome 3. Toenail fungus [31:52] Bradley says: Hello Robb and Nicki, About a year ago the middle toe toenail on my left foot curled on the right side of the toe and I noticed there was fungus under the toenail. There was no pain and did not seem to be a problem. During this past summer, I went to the doctor for my regular annual blood draw and showed the doc the toenail. She said it is just cosmetic and is not an issue unless it spreads. Also, she said the only thing that can be done is take some pills, which she said is very hard on the liver, for several months until it clears, and recommended that I do not take the medication unless the fungus spreads. Then, in October/November, I noticed fungus behind the big toe toenail on my right foot. The toenail on my right foot did not curl, but, it has more of a lumpy feel and I can see the white fungus growth underneath the toenail. I still have zero pain on either foot and not sure if it is even a big concern. However, considering a conventional doctor is reluctant to put me on the medication because of the potential side effects, do you happen to know of anything else that can be done? I have tried the foot baths with tea tree oil and other foot soaks and toenail ointments and they are not working. I have found some docs on the internet recommending special diets for around 6 months or more, but they all vary somewhat (have not attempted yet). Also, found a somewhat fringe treatment by ingesting sugar and turpentine (have not tried this either). Supposedly, the sugar attracts the parasite or fungus or whatever and the turpentine eliminates it and you just shit it all out. Thank you both very much. 4. High BUN: should I be concerned? [39:07] William says: Hi Robb and Nicki, Over 5 years of taking annual bloodwork, I have found that my BUN is consistently high (30-35 mg/dL). I’ve had my own theories as to why, so see if am I on the right track with this line of thinking: 1. I’ve been a daily sauna user for the past 5 years, which could lead to dehydration and elevated urea in the blood. I drink at least a liter of water during and after, and probably an additional 1-2 L around dinner time. Total daily liquids averages 4-5L. I salt my food heavily and take Mg and K supplements, but don’t measure total electrolytes 2. I tend to eat most of my protein at night (100-150g), with a half coming in the form of plant-based protein powders 3. The blood tests are always taken first thing in the morning, so it’s possible I’m still dehydrated from the night’s of sleep, combined with the high protein intake. I don’t normally drink a lot of water upon waking because I don’t feel thirsty, although thanks to LMNT I’m starting to change that :-) My doctor is concerned about my high BUN and an increase in chance to develop gout and kidney damage. He has advised me to reduce my protein intake. However, my avg daily protein is 150g, and as an active 165lb man, that number seems safe and appropriate. Have you looked much into BUN in people on paleo/keto diets with high protein? Are my numbers way out of whack and dangerous? Or is high BUN less of a concern in the context of a clean diet and low systemic inflammation? Could there be something else going on to contribute to this consistently high BUN? Or is it as simple is spreading my protein intake more evenly throughout the day instead of one large bolus at night? Any thoughts and insights you have would be very helpful! Thanks! William 5. Where In The World to Live? [44:24] Keri says: Hi guys! Huge fan since way back in the day. Love the podcast and am grateful for all you do. I have a weird, possibly not typical question, but value your opinions and feel like it’s relevant and something you might have an opinion on. Anyway... My family has been working towards moving to a small, debt-free, self-sufficient farm since 2009. We’re currently ready to start looking to buy. We grew up on farms/ranches and have years of experience. We’re into regenerative agriculture, pasture raised animals etc. We also homeschool all of our kids. My question is: we can move anywhere, considering political climates, taxes, cultural/social environment,…

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.

How To Turn A Glass Of Water Into A Pharmaceutical, Supplement, Remedy & "Information Carrier" Using The Science Of Infopathy.
bengreenfieldfitness.com/anton I've talked in the past about the use of inaudible sound waves to elicit specific brain wave and neurotransmitter responses, specifically with a device called the "Apollo," which I discuss in this podcast. I've also been exploring the use of magnetic waves to elicit certain neurotransmitter responses, via a device called a "Hapbee," which can simulate chemicals such as caffeine, nicotine, melatonin, MDMA, etc. to elicit a physiological response without the actual intake of supplements, pharmaceuticals, or any other compounds or medicines. I'll be doing a podcast on this device soon. And finally, I've now been experimenting with a so-called "Infopathy" device (use code BENG10 for 10% off any of their devices), which "imprints" water, or your body, with frequencies of everything from St. John's Wort to coffee to Viagra to anything else you want from their literal hundreds of "infoceutical" options. It's so fascinating that I just had to get the inventor on the show! Anton Fedorenko, the creator of the Infopathy devices, received his BASc in applied physics and mathematics and MASc in innovation and high technologies from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology in Russia. For 10 years, Anton has been involved with several water-related projects wherein he not only conducted fundamental research but also developed water-related products and web-based platforms. From 2013 to 2017, he was a member of the organizing committee for the annual Water Conference on the Physics, Chemistry, and Biology of Water. In 2018, Anton founded Ash*Nu Technologies Inc. and is currently developing two platforms: Infopathy and AquaPsy. Infopathy allows users to transfer infoceuticals (ICs) for health, cosmetic, veterinary, and gardening purposes anytime, anywhere. AquaPsy takes consciousness research to a whole new level. Through AquaPsy, people from around the world can be connected remotely to water-based sensors, which can detect and evaluate influences caused by non-local mind effects. Both these platforms help one rediscover themselves from the quantum view. During this discussion, you'll discover: -Infopathy defined...9:05 An online platform where people can download signals recorded from various substances Use properties for medications without actual substances Naturopaths have used this practice for years First publication on the topic was in 1922 (how metals affect blood vessels in rabbits) Memory of water is a term associated with infopathy Why Water, Sunlight, Grounding & Relationships Are The Keys To Your Health & How To Feed, Clean & Protect Your Body Forever: An Interview With Ben Greenfield's Father Gary Greenfield. Similar, but not the same as homeopathy Article: What Are Infoceuticals? Infoceutical FAQs -Quantum Electro Dynamic (QED) theory applied to everyday life...13:30 Video on the QED theory Should water be consumed immediately after being treated? Consume within 3 days Avoid exposure to WiFi or cell phones Miron glass to protect herbs and nutrients from radiation 1 tsp of salt added into the water to increases the efficacy of infopathy (mineralized water is more stable) IC Pad for charging water (use code BENG10 to save 10%) -Mixing many ingredients into treated water...18:30 A "complex" is a mix of several ingredients into one water Suggestions for complexes in order to get the desired result Public complexes are created by practitioners via a peer-reviewed process Running a new infoceutical on top of an existing one will override the old one -The wearable that allows you to transmit infoceuticals...22:30 IC Hummer wearable device, that can also be used on water (use code BENG10 to save 10%) If you don't have the IC Pad, wrap the Hummer around the water and get the same effect IC Pad is slightly faster than the Hummer and also contains herbs The IC Hummer can be attached to the body...

Omega-3 Fatty Acids: The Best Sources, Benefits, and How To Get Enough
It would be hard to find any health practitioner - traditional, functional, or otherwise - who doesn’t acknowledge the importance of consuming omega-3 fatty acids. Supplements in the form of fish oil or krill oil are widely recommended and consumed, and come with claims of cardiovascular disease prevention, cognitive benefits, and anti-inflammatory properties. But is it really a good idea to get your omega-3s in a gel cap rather than from food? And do they really do everything the media would have you believe? On this podcast, NBT Scientific Director Megan Hall and I discuss omega-3 fatty acids: what they are, what they’re good for, and the best ways to get them. Megan outlines the different types of omega-3 and explains why some are better than others. She also explains why some health claims are overblown, and why buying fish oil supplements may not be the best health strategy.

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!
