Controversial Thoughts: Dry Tinder, Assessing the true impact of COVID
Play • 24 min

Is it time to get scared of COVID, or is the media just back on the hysteria train? 


Remember 6 months ago when everyone was trashing Sweden for their coronavirus response? Well guess what, they are looking pretty good right now despite having essentially no lockdowns or other measures in place. In this Controversial Thoughts video I discuss the concept of “dry tinder”, or the amount of any population that is most frail, elderly, and susceptible to illness and how this relates to the impact of COVID in different countries. I also share data regarding the continued importance of being metabolically healthy and having an optimal vitamin D status. As we head into winter how are your vitamin D levels looking, and how metabolically healthy are you?


If you’re interested in my thoughts on the vaccine, I discussed these in much more detail on last week’s controversial thoughts episode. Look for a podcast with @kirkparsley coming next Tuesday elaborating on all of these concepts. 


Being metabolically healthy is central to long term quality of life and a robust immune system. #theremembering.

#224 Siim Land About Autophagy, Hormesis and Immunity
This episode is a recording of Siim Land on Steve Stav's podcast. 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.

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.

Electrolytes, Water Retention, Protein & Ketones on Keto and Carnivore with Dr. Angela Stanton - Part 2
This episode is about Electrolytes, Water Retention, Protein & Ketones on Keto and Carnivore with Dr. Angela Stanton. Part 2 of 2 episodes, with part 1 out Monday of this week. "I am a migraine expert by default because I have been a migraine sufferer since my childhood. My doctorate is in a field of neuroscience that incorporates several specialties with the focus on neurotransmitters associated with decision-making. Economic games and heavy mathematics are used in this field of research. My official degree is doctorate in Economics with dissertation in neuroscience. This field is referred to as Neuroeconomics. I now study how the brain and nutrition interrelate. I specifically focus on migraine as a channelopathy, where electrolyte imbalance induced by glucose sensitivity and carbs intolerance is causing havoc. My latest book “Fighting the Migraine Epidemic: A Complete Guide. How to Treat & Prevent Migraines Without Medicines” is available in paperback and e-book all over the world ( I am currently working on a ketosis book (the various ways of eating, such as carnivore, ketogenic, and even the low carbs high fat, that can get a person into ketosis) that is custom tailored to migraineurs, because their reaction to nutrition is so different from others and because they need so different electrolytes. My focus is on the importance of electrolytes and nutrition for migraine-free (and medicine free) life."

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. We actually talk way more about the mental side to diet, health, and living a meaningful life. This really was a great episode that touched on so many important topics that haven't been explored with previous guests.

SHOW NOTES * [5:10] Focus on what you can control. * [9:40] Get comfortable being uncomfortable. * [16:20] His backstory and how he got to where he is now. * [24:10] How much do genetics have to do with building muscle? * [29:25] 3 genetic traits that help you build muscle. * [32:10] The importance of challenging your muscles and obtaining skill acquisition. * [42:40] His tips on training at home. * [47:40] Cardio, aerobic systems, and burning fat. * [52:10] Breathwork. * [56:10] Carbohydrates and stress. * [1:02:10] His current diet and nutrition. * [1:04:00] Bro split vs full body for workouts, crossfit, drop sets, and muscle confusion. * [1:08:40] Gut health and choice of plant foods. * [1:10:40] Other lifestyle factors that might be preventing you from living your best life. * [1:14:00] Closing thoughts and words from Ben.

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. 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!

[16:00] Healing Childhood Wounds * How his childhood growing up in Ukraine and coming to the USA at 4 years old has impacted his life. * Differences between work in Ukraine and the USA and how that shifted his parent's focus and ability to be there for him. * How being a latchkey kid from a young age created a lot of sadness as he felt like something was missing and he turned to himself when feeling alone. * What has been able to heal since becoming a father including the ability to better understand what his father went through for him. * The fact that he was dead for several minutes when he was 3 years old from Laryngitis and was saved with a tracheotomy. * Why his parents had such a strong need to protect him from any harm after his experience with Laryngitis but Aleks rebelled. * The work he does as a Level IV C.H.E.K Practitioner and Director of Athletic Programming & Rehabilitation at Primal Fusion.
