She invented and patented VibraCool, vibrating cryotherapy to treat tendonitis and decrease opioid use, and her Buzzy device has been used to control needle pain for over 32 million needle procedures.

In this episode, we discuss the topic of pain management using tools and techniques, including vibration, heat, cold and mindset. Over to Dr. Baxter. Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I'm delighted to welcome Dr. Amy Baxter to the podcast. Dr. Baxter, how are you?
I am doing wonderfully this afternoon for me and morning for you.
Yes. Yeah. Connecting via the internet once again. Thank you so much for sharing some of your time today. But, first up, for all those that may not be familiar with you or your work, I'd love it if you could just tell us a little bit about yourself, please.
Sure. I am a pediatric emergency doctor by training. I did most of my clinical work in any areas of suffering. So I did a child abuse fellowship, I did pediatrics, I did research in nausea, I invented the BARF scale for children with cancer to be able to say, "That barfing face, that's the one I feel like." Now I am a full-time CEO of a medical device company that blocks out sharp pain.
Wow, fantastic. Well, interesting topic then because pain is very personal, it's very unique to the individual.
I guess first question then when talking about pain, many of us will be subject to pain throughout our days, weeks, lives, whether it be headache, sports injury, leading to perhaps more serious complications where pain is involved. How might we know if our pain is normal, i.e., "Oh, it's just a headache," or we should see a medical professional?

Absolutely. Well, I think that there's a whole heap that we need to catch up on, and no doubt we've all made some learnings during that time as well. So I'm really keen to dial in, but first up for all of our listeners that may not have heard our previous conversation, I would love it if you'd just tell us a little bit about yourself.
Yeah. So if I go back, oh, about 10 years, I could start there and say that I found myself with some peculiar symptoms, shaking and fatigue and getting very burnt out and went into the doctor and had some tests done. And I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. So 2010, 45 years old, and that's when I got to work on questioning, what can I do about this? I don't want to jump into pharmaceuticals. I want to see what I can do with lifestyle. And lo and behold, I tested 12 months later and I had reversed it. So what I was doing was working and that of course felt phenomenal. And I had an aha moment. And then I went on to teach workshops and coach folks and transitioned from going towards psychotherapy into holistic health education, which I had been really studying for most of my life.
I published a book on it in 2019, Wave Goodbye to Type 2 Diabetes. It was endorsed by Dr. Christian Northrup. And then here we are today and talk about I'm opening Ditch the Sugar Academy and working with folks one-on-one and really focusing in on sugar addiction.

Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Hunter McIntyre to the podcast. Hunter, how are you, mate?
Fantastic, buddy. I’m actually drinking some protein right now.
Well, you’re looking cool and we’re going to get into that in just a second. But first up for all of our listeners that may not be familiar with you, your work, all the crazy stuff that you do, I’d love it if you could just tell us a little bit about yourself, please.
Yeah. It’s always tough to do this because you feel like you’re bragging but whatever, I’ll do my best to be without being braggadocios. But I mean, I live in the world of a kind of extreme independent competition, kind of like the X Games version of running and fitness. I don’t do Olympic distance running. I do Tough Mudders and Spartan Races and we travel the globe doing races and HYROXs and CrossFit Games. Whatever you could throw at me, I’ll do, kind of like a hitman for hire. I dropped out on college and I needed to find a way to make money so I loved working out and I realized that you could work out and make money in these sports. And I was like, “All right, I’ll just be a hitman. If you put cash down, I’ll show up and I’ll beat everybody.”
So that was kind of my motto and my lifestyle when I was a little bit younger. Obviously. I still love to do that stuff but I’ve kind of transformed my life into being more of a businessman nowadays and I actually spend more time at a desk that you can imagine, sadly. But, trust me, if any of you guys got $100,000 and you’re putting it down to see who is fittest person on earth, I’ll show up and probably cream everybody.

Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I'm delighted to welcome Erin Sharoni to the podcast. Erin, how are you?
I'm great. Thanks for having me.
Thank you for sharing some time, really appreciate it and very keen to dive into some of the questions that I'd love to ask you this morning as well, but first up for all of our listeners that may not be familiar with you or your work. I just wondered if you could tell us a little bit about yourself please.
Sure. It's always so odd when someone asks you to give a synopsis of yourself. You're like, "Where do I start?" Well, I'll start with why I'm here today. I'm the co-founder of Juvicell, which is a new really exciting longevity nutraceutical, so a supplement, and I also have a background in biology and biotech. I worked in the digital health and biotech space for the past six years. I'm wrapping up my Master's thesis right now at Harvard in biology with a focus on aging and epigenetics. And prior to that, I have a very interesting career path where I spent quite a few years on television here in the States doing sports presenting actually. And previous to that, I worked in finance as a trader at a couple of Wall Street banks and hedge funds. So very broad experience right there.
Yeah. Well look, no thank you. Yeah. Very interesting and wide ranging background and of particular interest to us because nobody wants to get old really, or at least nobody wants to look like they're aging, I think. So I'm really keen to tap into your knowledge and try and understand I think first and foremost, what's actually happening in the body when we age?
Yeah. Well, that's a great question. No one wants to look like they're aging, but I would say even more importantly, and I'll be the first to admit, I can be very vain, nobody wants to feel like they're aging. Right? And I would say that ultimately if we're honest with ourselves, that's really the more important thing that's at stake, right? If you really want to look good, there's plenty of options. You can spend some money and somebody can make you look better, but no one to date can wave a magic wand or use a scalpel to turn back your biological age significantly if you're not also supporting your biological aging in other important ways.
So as we age on a cellular level, there are a bunch of these different hallmarks of aging. So I'm sure you're familiar with my friend, David Sinclair. I don't know if you've had him on, but I'm sure you've read his book, and other people have talked about stu
