06. What the Health?! Mushrooms & Hemp with Lance Schuttler
Play • 43 min

What the health?!

A fitting title for this revelatory episode as we discuss mushrooms studied by the military, the distinction between different CBD brands, and what does 'FDA-Approved' really mean?

Also, if you've ever experienced the holistic vs. modern medicine conversation- where you know certain herbs and adaptogens can cure a family member or friend of an affliction, but then you receive pushback from the rest of the family (who aren't educated or willing to educate themselves), and then just the general population, and of course ‘big drug’ doctors.  Yeah, this episode is for you.  And maybe think about sharing this episode with them after you listen.

In fact, invite everyone you think would benefit from healing themselves to rate this show on Apple or Spotify.

So who am I and why did I decide to host this show? Well, after unraveling all of the medical lies I had been told about my endometriosis, I educated myself, and I was able to heal myself after 17 years of debilitating pain. Whether it's endo or any other painful disorder labeled as 'chronic', I want to expose the lesser-known solutions that can heal your mind, body & spirit. 

My experience inspired me to create and live my art, so I started an ongoing art series about it which I titled, Every Phase–where I powerfully illustrate how I healed myself as I live by the phases of the female cycle infradian rhythm clock.  This month's focus is the Follicular phase and the featured piece is titled, Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen. The translated meaning is ‘No past, no present, no future’ and is a Reiki level 2 symbol used to send distant healing across time and space. Watch for it's release on the last Friday of this month and be the first to see it by subscribing to the series at meredithochoa.com

Even though I was lied to for years by big pharma, I was able to find experts who helped me achieve the impossible. This space introduces them to you.

Today we are chatting with the Owner & CEO of Ascent Nutrition, Lance Schuttler. His passion for research, brain health, neurogenesis, nutrition, and biohacking led him to begin Ascent Nutrition, a health and wellness company with a mission of offering deeply transformative and helpful nutrients to as many people as possible and to help bring about a great collective shift in human consciousness and health.

Having graduated from the University of Iowa with a degree in Health Science, Lance brings deep experience within the health and wellness fields, as well as a well-rounded perspective of the nutraceutical industry. He has worked in the three major areas of this industry and saw many inefficiencies and shortcuts that were and still are being taken by many in this field.

Lance is a Contributing Health and Wellness Writer at The Epoch Times and his work also includes the topics of regenerative agriculture, resource-based economies and quantum technologies.

Key takeaways

  • When it comes to health, wellness, nutrition, medicine, diet, lifestyle optimization, your average medical doctor undergoing Western medical training is getting so little of that, it's no doubt that they don't have the answers. We know they don't have the answers because they aren't given the information in school to begin with.
  • Things like natural immunity are now recognized by the Lancet, and this was pushed off as a conspiracy theory, a wacko conspiracy theory three years ago when it's literally one of the most simple, basic principles of human health.
  • FDA-approved simply means an organization paid for that statement. It does not ensure efficacy or that the drug/supplement is beneficial, or even works.
  • The US government, the Department of Defense, the NIH and the NIAID, all studied mushrooms through this program called Biodefense Bio Shield and found the Agarikon mushroom to be a counter agent to biological weapons.
  • Humans share. 50% of our DNA in common with mushrooms, while only 10% in common with plants.
