In today’s episode we welcome scientist and author Dr. Anthony G. Jay. Anthony is the President and CEO of AJ Consulting Company and recently wrote an eye opening book titled Estrogeneration: How Estrogenics are Making You Fat, Sick and Infertile. His book explains what estrogenics are, just how pervasive they are in our world today, and, despite the mounting evidence of their many negative effects, just how little is being done to minimize the use of unnecessary and often toxic ingredients in our food, skin care, plastics, and other daily products. 

Often scientific research can be inaccessible to the average human brain, but Anthony writes in such a personable and digestable way. Anthony exposes what is in our coffee, sunscreen, our salmon and critiques the shady politics of scientific research. Although the information in his book might absolutely horrify you, thankfully he offers plenty of actionable steps for us to easily minimize the amount of estrogenics in our daily life. If you are experiencing any type of health issue, suffering from depression, or even infertility — we would highly recommend you take a listen to this illuminating interview!

On today’s episode we welcome Andy Hnilo. Andy is a model, actor, former professional athlete, and founder of a skin care company, Alitura Naturals. Andy is the kind of guy that when you see him, you think, “What is this guy eating? How does he work out and what is his skin care regiment?” Your skin is your largest organ and we often let it soak up toxic chemicals when it could be soaking up healthy, clean ingredients. Today we learn more about the process that goes into making Andy’s Aliture skin care products — which contain food-grade super foods like colostrum, royal jelly, and even Chaga mushrooms. Today we hear Andy’s incredible story, talk all about marketing to men, organ meat, and even hanging upside down. For any guys out there thinking, “Skin care isn’t really important to me,” Andy explains, with the help of a UFC fighter, why we should all be taking care of our skin. Take a listen!

Key Points From This Episode:

  • What does Alitura mean and stand for?
  • The accident that propelled Andy’s passion for natural nutrition.
  • Being the alpha and eating your organ meat!
  • The ingredients used in Alitura and why you can eat them too.

PMR Episode 171 Feature Image


On today’s episode, we’re talking all about gut health. This is an incredibly multi-faceted topic as there are many layers when dealing with gut health, gut treatment, and preventative measures. From food, to exercise, to lifestyle factors, to different auto immune issues — gut health appears to be an endless topic of discovery, with rarely a clear cut diagnosis or treatment. So today, I’m talking with Dr. Michael Ruscio. Michael is a clinical researcher and author who practices functional medicine with the focus on digestive conditions. Dr. Ruscio has his own podcast and blog where he talks about gut issues, and he’s a frequent speaker on this complex topic. Here, I ask him all the questions that us, non-doctors, have about gut health. Like how to determine what your issues actually are, what they stem from, how to fix them, and even the order in which to take these steps. If you’re struggling with any gut health or digestive issues, or you know someone who is, this is an episode that you probably won’t want to miss!

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

Key Points From This Episode:

  • What is a microbiome?
  • How to tell if you are having gut health issues.
  • Why food is not enough!
  • Where do you start if you’re having gut health issues?
  • Tele-medicine and Skype consults.
  • Finding the right doctor.
  • Probiotic and prebiotic pills.
  • How does paleo tie in to a healthy gut?
  • The low FOD map diet.
  • The effects of caffeine on gut health. 
  • Fermented foods and the role they play.
  • And much more!

Tweetables:

“If you’re going to put your energy into anything, diet, I would, say would be the most important.” — @DrRuscio [0:18:33.1]

Sometimes the pursuit of perfection ends up doing quite a bit more harm than it does good.” — @DrRuscio [0:19:39.9]

You’d be surprised how often people bring their biases into a topic and then it becomes what looks like science.” — @DrRuscio [0:30:27.9]

If you can learn to just listen to your own body, you will find your own truth.” — @DrRuscio [0:54:19.5]

PMR Episode 171 Feature Image


On today’s episode we have Dave Asprey, an entrepreneur, businessman, author and probably one of the most prominent bio hackers in the world. Not only is Dave the creator of Bullet Proof Coffee and the Bulletproof Diet, he’s also the man who’s gunning to live to 180 by hacking every element of his health. While some of Dave’s tactics are oh so Paleo – like eating quality whole foods and sleeping in a cool, dark room - some of his methods are about as opposite from traditional Paleo as you can imagine. Like taking over a 150 pills, vitamins and supplements a day! Whether you’re into bio-hacking or not, one thing we can say is that Dave Asprey is certainly putting in the time, money and effort into testing these methods for us.

In this episode we discuss everything from diets and sleep, to America’s moldy coffee and bio hacking in the womb, to what happens when Dave’s kids go through the McDonalds Drive through.

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

What you'll hear in this episode:

  • The problems with eating the way caveman ate in today's word.
  • The healthiest place in the world to live.
  • The role of ancient mitochondria bacteria in your body.
  • Bio-hacking in the womb.
  • Graceful degradation: Does Dave ever have a cheat day?
  • Why Dave takes 150 pills a day.
  • Why America and Canada are drinking moldy coffee.
  • Dave's skin care and exercise regimes.
  • The importance of getting more high-quality sleep.
  • Cold showers and dark room slumbers.
  • And much more!


“If your goal is to die like a caveman then you should eat like a caveman.”@bulletproofexec [0:07:01.3]

“We are on the cusp of becoming a space ferrying species, probably in my lifetime.”@bulletproofexec [0:11:00.2]

“You owe it to your kids to start hacking in the womb.”@bulletproofexec [0:15:10.1]

“People without enough energy are wired to be mean to each other.”@bulletproofexec [0:21:11.1]
