Living a full, healthy, happy, and long life might be simpler than we think. Merely thinking positively and having an upbeat attitude has huge benefits for health and longevity. Many of us tend to jump straight to the next hyped diet though, forgetting the positive consequences simple pillars like mindset, great sleep, regular exercise, and the avoidance of junk food can have on us. In this episode, we get a chance to listen to the brilliant thinking of Brad Kearns, one of the OGs of the Ancestral Health Movement. He has written books such as The Keto Reset Diet and Keto for Life with Mark Sisson which have helped get keto on the world stage and argue for its benefits in the longevity space too

This conversation with Brad is wide-ranging, and he tells us about his personal daily routines, the benefits of hormetic stressors like ice plunges, and the work he and Mark have put into their research. Mark also speaks about his podcasting work, and the amazing potential of podcasts for deep sharing, encouraging huge action and learning on the go. We chat about diet quite a bit too, and Mark weighs in on nose-to-tail, vegan, meat only and other fancy hacks, ultimately suggesting that if we get the basics right we are very close to the finish line. In the final pieces of dialogue, we get into some awesome stuff about mindset and age and hear Mark’s views about the magical power of a youthful spirit.

As gut health grows in the popular imagination, there is a greater and greater need for clear understanding and transparency. Just like many other areas of the health market, there has been confusion and misinformation in the realm of the gut, probiotics, and bacteria, and at the end of the day, the ones who suffer are the consumers. Caroline Beckman, the founder of Nouri, joins us today to talk about her company, what they are doing in the probiotic space and her commitment to helping customers through informative labeling and continued education.

Conventional chiropractic readjustments are often unsuitable treatments for people who suffer from chronic pain. Today’s guest is Dr. Emily Kiberd, a chiropractor whose approach to the treatment of people with a range of symptoms extends far beyond the scope of her discipline. Dr. Kiberd has a holistic methodology, and works with functional medicine practitioners, develops comprehensive lifestyle plans and workout programs, and seeks to understand the root cause of pain and imbalances in her clients. Part of her focus is on women who are either pregnant, have autoimmune issues, want to lose weight or have Hashimoto’s.

Her treatment plan in these regards encourages women to embrace strength training and she has actually developed a specific program for this called Thyroid Strong. Dr. Kiberd joins us on the show today to speak about her diagnostic processes, workout plans, belief in the basic pillars of good health, and own process working through Hashimoto’s. She also gets into her experience with pregnancy and motherhood and talks about the lessons she has learned through the process as far as keeping her body and mind in good form. This episode should be valuable to anyone who cares about health and wellness, so make sure you join us for a brilliant conversation.

Tweetables:

“A really, really good manual therapist, physical therapist, or chiropractor looks at where the body needs more stability and where it needs more mobility.” — @DrEmilyKiberd [0:16:11.1]

“The autoimmune population, oftentimes as part of that autoimmune condition, has joint pain and muscle tension. Whether they've been diagnosed or not, you need to stimulate the muscle tissue.” — @DrEmilyKiberd [0:19:28.1]

“The biohacking movement is cool, but if you don't do the basics and you don't do them well, and do them consistently, does it matter what nootropic you take, or how many times you're plunging into a cold bath?” — @DrEmilyKiberd [0:46:49.1]

Light and eye health are an often-neglected part of our overall wellness. While many of us focus on proper nutrition, exercise, and mental health, we rarely turn attention to the impact that light has on our well-being. This, despite the role that light plays in eye strain, seasonal depression, sleep disorders, sleep function, and sleep hygiene, among many conditions. Our guest today, Andy Mant, is here to shepherd us out of the darkness and into the (safe) light. His company, BLUblox, produces a range of light-blocking glasses. Their evidence-based, research-backed products and information focus truly sets them apart.

In today’s episode, we learn more about light blocking. We discover that blocking light is far more nuanced than we are led to believe. Light exposure is context-specific and solutions must deal with people’s specific circumstances. Andy also walks us through some ways to counteract overexposure to artificial light sources. We learn more about why sunglasses and sun cream are not all that they are cracked up to be and how they are potentially doing more harm than good. While this might seem counterintuitive, Andy’s got the research to back up the claims! This is a super interesting discussion on an aspect of our health that gets far too little credit. Tune in today.

DOWNLOAD THE FULL TRANSCRIPT

 

Key Points From This Episode:

  • Andy’s take on daylight savings, the pros of not implementing it, and how it relates to SAD.
  • Learn about Andy’s background and what led him to work in light-blocking eyewear.
  • What happened when Andy tested so-called light-blocking glasses he’d bought online.
  • Find out the difference between balanced natural and imbalanced artificial light.
  • The function of blue light, the effects of overexposure, and antidotes.
  • Sunglasses are more harmful than we think: why covering your eyes isn’t so great!
  • Why it’s not possible to have sunglasses that protect from the glare and let ‘good stuff’ in.
  • Wearing sunglasses and sun cream is context-specific, according to Andy.
  • Insights into melanin and how to build up a higher level in your skin.
  • Two critical studies that Andy has recently read on sunglasses and skin circadian rhythm.
  • An overview of the effects of the different colors in the light spectrum.
  • Why it is so important to get individualized plans from general health information.
  • Blue light has been unfairly demonized rather than understanding it in a nuanced way.
  • Ask for the spectral analysis report before buying blue-light glasses and what to look for in it.
  • A look at BLUblox’s different products and some exciting upcoming products.
  • BLUblox’s charitable involvement and how to contact the company.

“We wanted to become different from our competitors in that we are evidence-based. We use the academic literature to design our glasses.” — @andymant12 [0:14:34.1]

“Natural is the sun and artificial is anything that is in essence, emitting light during the day.” — @andymant12 [0:15:31.1]

“We've started to play around with those light signals by blocking them when we shouldn't be, by partially filtering them when we shouldn't be.” — @andymant12 [0:29:59.1]

“For us to have the perfect circadian health, we need to be outside exposing our eyes to the sun, regardless of whether it's raining, cloudy, sunny.” — @andymant12 [0:40:07.1]

Our two special guests in today’s episode are Danny and Maura Vega who run the Fat Fueled Family, which is their personal brand that does coaching work around nutrition, fitness, parenting, education, and mindset. One of the main things that we talk about in the interview is Danny and Maura’s journey with varying diets over the years, and how they have tweaked and personalized different ones to find something that works. Maura started out as a vegetarian and the couple talk about how they progressed through stages of paleo, whole foods, keto, meat-based paleo, and a lower carb whole foods approach too.

Another big topic in this episode and one which is quite unusual for the show is Danny and Maura’s approach to parenting. We talk about how our guests’ fluctuating positions on diets trickled down into those of their kids and about how ultimately the children were given the power to make their own choices about food. The whole philosophy of allowing kids to make their own decisions is a big principle in Danny and Maura’s approach to parenting more broadly in fact. We speak about how conventional schooling and disciplinarian practices don't fly with our guests, and how they are doing things differently to instill a love of learning and a sense of agency in their offspring. Anybody interested in the varying versions of keto and paleo, or about non-conventional parenting practices would love this edition of the show.

Our guest on the show today is Annette Verpillot, Canadian posturologist and founder of Posturepro. Annette is here to blow our minds about the causes of bad posture and give us some simple ways to address them. Posture has been defined as the maintenance of correct tension between flexors and extensors against the pull of gravity. Her perspective on how this balance is maintained looks a lot further than sitting upright though. According to Annette, the brain is actually the main cause of poor posture. It often finds itself processing a faulty sensory input and then responding by misdirecting the muscles. From the moment we are born, there might be imbalances in how we crawl or position our tongues. These issues go on to generate painful knock-on effects that most people live their whole lives with. Even our eyes or the way we sleep could cause improper movements that have posture-related effects. Luckily, many of these problems are reversible though. We get into all of this and more with Annette today in what proves to be a highly information-packed episode. Make sure you grab a pen before tuning in.

“The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons defines posture as being the right amount of tension between flexors and extensors, which basically allows us as human to be able to stand upright and be able to fight gravity efficiently.” — @posture_pro [0:06:44.3]

“A brain imbalance leads to a postural imbalance. A postural imbalance creates a muscular imbalance, and this in turn creates biomechanical constraints. You cannot have this problem without having in conjunction a digestive, or even immune system problem.” — @posture_pro [0:20:31.1]

“We live in an era where we've cut the body into different parts and then we've created professions to address these specific pieces. We've neglected the fact that the body is a whole.” — @posture_pro [0:38:56.5]

Joining us on this week’s episode is Sabrina Wieser, German-born but New York-based marathon runner and coach who is known online as Running Brina. Growing up in a small hometown meant that Sabrina had never considered running as an option before moving to The States. New York’s flourishing running culture captured her imagination though, and she ended up falling in love with the sport. On top of being a sub-four marathoner with a massive online following, Sabrina is also very serious about lifting.

We are lucky to have her on the show today to talk about - you guessed it - all things running and gymming! She lets us in on how she decided to take both sports so seriously in the first place, and you'll hear about all the dietary and workout logistics involved in making such an aim sustainable. Sabrina tells us about the marathons she has completed across the world, her training community in NYC, her ultra high carb diet, favorite running spots, and the city as a network of bridges, hills, and loops. We also spend a bit of time speaking about her quite unintentional trajectory into being a social media personality, her love of her day job, and why a social media-based career is not for her, even though it sometimes feels like a job anyway. Sabrina is an inspiration and her down to earth attitude about the value of sticking to a goal is infectious, so tune in for a great interview with an incredible human being.

“What I had to figure out was really, ‘Okay. When I’m running, let’s say, five times a week, when do I go to the gym and train legs?’” — @runningbrina [0:17:24.4]

“A runner doesn’t have to look a certain way. They come in all shapes and sizes, ages, and paces, and that’s really the place where I feel most comfortable.” — @runningbrina [0:22:20.1]

“I went to the Dominican Republic with some of my friends who were born there. They took us to Santo Domingo and we ran the Santo Domingo Half. That’s really what we did. We explored the city running. It was amazing.” — @runningbrina [0:54:05.1]
