If you have stomach problems or allergies, you probably have a doctor you can call. But if things are not working in the bedroom, who do you call then? What if you lose desire or are having trouble with the mechanics of sexual intimacy? Who would you call then? Sexual experiences are highly individual, but they’re also something we share (or at least try to) with our partners. And for better or worse, it defines so much of who we a...

You’ve probably noticed the media right now is filled with polarizing voices, rage, and vitriol; but have you noticed that these extreme views are not your own? Have you noticed that hardly anyone you know is truly radical in their views? Most people are reasonable, thoughtful, and concerned. 

On this week’s podcast, I’d like to share my own experiences with courting radical viewpoints, and why they pop right now on social media. I...

Did you receive a CRP (C-reactive protein) test during your last blood test? Since recent research correlates systemic inflammation with dozens of diseases and illnesses, cooling this internal flame has become a major focus in preventative medicine.

On this week’s podcast, we’ll speak about the low-grade, chronic inflammation that many of us struggle with unknowingly due to gut dysbiosis. In an ideal world, we eat a meal, digest an...

When I was 11 years old, I face-planted snow sledding and gave myself two black eyes and a slight concussion. I remember being sleepy, dizzy, and struggling to concentrate for a few days. Luckily, I only whacked my head like that a couple times growing up, but some teenagers do it every day during sports practice. What do contact sports do long term to our brains? At what age are we responsible enough to make a decision about putt...

Millions of people experience traumatic brain injuries (TBI) each year, and an estimated 5-6% of those people experience long-term issues. If you break your arm, the path to recovery is pretty obvious and the fix is visible. But if you get in a car accident, hit your head, and two months later suffer from brain fog and vertigo, what do you do? How do you fix your brain once it’s been damaged? Fortunately, there are evolving method...

IQ Tests remain the best method (albeit flawed) to assess intelligence. More difficult to measure, but perhaps more interesting, is Emotional Intelligence (EQ). How does someone rank in terms of self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and relationship management. In a digitally driven, AI-enabled future, perhaps people with the highest emotional skills could be those who find the greatest success.  A big part of pers...

I wore a continuous blood glucose monitor for a month and learned that certain fruits (mangos in my case) sent my blood sugar soaring, and even more surprising, my 3 am glucose levels often dropped so low I was in hypoglycemic state. And here’s the kicker: those hypo nights always followed an elevated glycemic day. Weird. I’d never learn this without a CGM, and the dietary shifts were super easy to make and the changes were almost ...

The Gut Immune Connection with Emeran Mayer

There are an estimated 100 trillion bacteria in your gut right now that weigh 2-3 lbs. If you were to spread them out, they would cover the surface of an entire tennis course. These include good bugs, bag bugs, and even some pathogens lurking in the corners. Your microbiome is believed to influence not just digestion and absorption of nutrients, but also mood, hormones, neurotransmitters...

The Obesity Pandemic Dr. Linda Anegawa  ---------- Hundreds of years ago, a portly belly was a sign of wealth. The royals ate and rank more than their fill while the serfs starved and toiled on the land. Today, not much has changed. Some of the wealthiest, most developed countries are plagued by weight gain and obesity, and the problem is quickly accelerating. Pre-existing medication conditions were one of the biggest risk factors...

Porn Addiction Pandemic 

by Joshua Shea ------------------ The book, Fifty Shades of Grey, is not just a bestseller, it’s one of the top 100 best sellers in history - and it’s not because it’s well written (it’s not). 13% of all websites are adult sites, and 30% of all data transferred online is x-rated. Everyone likes to complain about the “big tech” influence of Facebook and Twitter, but we deliberately avoid the tube-sites that...

The Future of the Quantified Self Movement with Dr. Michael Snyder ---------------- What if a $50 smart watch could give you early warning signs for illness, infection, and even disease?

How to Control Your Fearwith Dr. Amy Silver ---------------------------Humans are hard-wired to fear anything that puts us in harm’s way. But what do you do when fear keeps you from taking the necessary risks toward achieving your goals? Worried you might choose the wrong major in college? You probably will.

An Introduction to Mindfulness Dr. Shauna Shapiro ----------- Where were you when you learned that U.S. president #45 was elected? Do you remember the day when Kobe Bryant’s helicopter crashed? How about your birthday three years ago - do you remember that one? What about your significant other’s birthday last year? We often get caught up in the lives and events of other people more than our own, and while it’s easy to blame smar...

Brain Health Matters Dr. Dale Bredesen  ------------- The FDA approved a new Alzheimer’s drug, Aduhelm, and it’s estimated to cost medicare $57 billion per year. In the wake of the approval, three FDA advisory panel members resigned and medical professionals, patients, and taxpayers are understably worried. That’s a boatload of cash. Does it even work? My guest on this week’s podcast believes that the approval occurred simply bec...

Exploring the Hathapradipika Dr. Jim Mallinson

-------------- Most yoga teachers cite the Yoga Sutras as the original source of modern practices, but the Hathapradipika is a much more relevant text that is rarely read or referenced. Written by Svatmarama in the 1400s, this is one of the first writings that codified the practices of Hatha Yoga: yoga poses, breathing exercises, kriyas, and mudras. For anyone interested in the roots o...

Dangers Modern Medicine with Dr. Robert Pearl --------------------

How much would you spend to feel healthy and energized? If you were truly sick, you’d probably spend everything you had to feel well again. The USA currently spends about 20% of GDP on healthcare, and if that meant we were all glowing with health and living our best lives, the price would be a bargain. But that’s not what’s happening. Our reactive healthcare system...
