    #798 The Shocking Truth About Eggs & Heart Disease Nobody Talks About

    #798 The Shocking Truth About Eggs & Heart Disease Nobody Talks About

    Heart disease is the number one killer in the United States, and most of the world. In the U.S, around 695,000 people die from heart disease every year. Every 33 seconds, someone dies from heart disease in the U.S.
    Eggs are high in cholesterol and saturated fat, but there seems to be a shocking truth about the eggs and heart disease connection that nobody is talking about…
    Draw the cell…
    You’re made up of 30-70 trillion cells. Every cell has a lipid bilayer around it called the cell membrane. Think of the cell membrane as the bodyguard of your cells.
    The membrane is your intelligence. The membrane allows good things in and bad things out.
    We just established how important the cell membrane is. The next question is, what is the cell membrane made of?
    Protein, saturated fat and cholesterol!
    If saturated fat and cholesterol was so bad, why is your body made of it?
    The truth is, more people die from heart disease with normal to low cholesterol, than with high cholesterol.

    [00:30] Light's Profound Impact on Biology
    Light is a force that deeply influences every aspect of our biology. It programs our endocrine system, circadian rhythm, and nervous system. Excessive exposure to artificial light, particularly at night, has detrimental effects on hormonal balance and overall health. Chronic disruption of our natural circadian due to inadequate exposure to sunlight and excessive exposure to artificial light can lead to health issues, including disrupted sleep, increased inflammation, and metabolic imbalances. [11:30] Embracing Morning Light
    Step outside and experience natural morning light upon waking instead of turning to artificial sources. Morning light signals the start of the day to our internal clock. Natural light triggers the production of hormones that contribute to feelings of energy. Morning light can influence our circadian rhythms and set a beneficial tone for the day ahead.  [22:30] Grounding for Wellness
    There are benefits of stepping outside and removing one's shoes to connect with the Earth's magnetic field.  This connection allows the body to discharge excess electrical charge accumulated from exposure to artificial sources of electricity. Grounding yourself on the Earth can mitigate inflammation. It’s important to experience morning sunlight and pay attention to the specific frequencies of light, such as UVA, that contribute to hormonal balance. [34:50] The Healing Power of Sunlight
    We discuss studies demonstrating the health benefits of sunlight exposure, particularly its effects on nitric oxide production, heart efficiency, weight loss, and hormone levels.  Sunlight stimulates the thyroid gland, increases metabolism and fat burning, and enhances sex hormone production. It facilitates the production of structured water inside and around cells, which promotes blood flow and nutrient delivery. [40:40] Health Risks Associated with Skin Tone
    Roudy highlights the differences in susceptibility to chronic diseases, weight gain, and metabolic problems among individuals with varying skin tones.  People with darker skin, particularly those of African origins accustomed to high UV environments, may face increased health ri

    #795 Stay Young Forever: Using Glutathione to How To Heal Your Skin, Cellulite & Live Longer with Dr. Nayan Patel

    Today, I am blessed to have Dr. Nayan Patel here with me. Dr. Nayan Patel is a sought-after pharmacist, wellness expert, and thought leader. He has been working with physicians since 1999 to custom-develop medication for their clients and design a patient-specific drug and nutrition regimen. He has been the pharmacist of choice to celebrities, CEOs, and physicians.
    In this episode, Dr. Patel discusses the healing properties of glutathione. He explores how technological advancements have revolutionized glutathione delivery, addressing concerns like cellulite and oxidative stress. Dr. Patel emphasizes a holistic approach to health, highlighting the importance of activating organs like the gallbladder and liver. He also explains the innovative topical application method for glutathione, which bypasses traditional limitations. Lastly, Dr. Patel emphasizes the continuous use of glutathione to combat oxidative stress, especially in managing conditions like diabetes.

    [00:20] Unlocking the Healing Power of Glutathione
    Dr. Patel emphasizes that unlike in the past, viable solutions are now available for harnessing molecules like glutathione. This accessibility is highlighted through technological advancements, making it possible to achieve desired results effectively. While the focus may be on addressing specific concerns like stubborn cellulite, Dr. Patel underscores the importance of viewing health holistically. By activating organs like the gallbladder and liver to eliminate excess fat, the process targets superficial issues and promotes overall wellness. [06:50] Revolutionizing Glutathione Delivery
    Traditional methods of administering glutathione, such as injections, have limitations. These methods often result in the kidneys' rapid filtration of glutathione, leading to minimal absorption. Conventional glutathione supplementation does not adequately raise glutathione levels within the body's cells. Dr. Patel introduces an advancement in glutathione delivery, offering a solution to the issue of absorption. Through topical application, glutathione can bypass the challenges encountered by other delivery methods and directly enter the body's cells, which can remain active for extended periods. [22:00] Topical Application of Glutaryl
    Dr. Patel emphasizes the importance of regular use of Glutaryl, highlighting the continuous need for glutathione in the body. Glutaryl is designed for topical application on non-hairy areas of the body. Dr. Patel shares his experience encountering sulfur odor and stickiness with the formula. He recommends applying it to areas without hair. Despite the concerns about odor and stickiness, Dr. Patel affirms that the formula has remained unchanged since 2007, reflecting its efficacy in delivering glutathione. [26:20] Guardian of Skin: Harnessing Glutathione's Power
    The skin is the body's largest organ, constantly exposed to environmental pollutants. The accumulation of such substances can lead to oxidative stress, necessitating antioxidant support for skin health.  Glutathione, with its potent antioxidant properties, can effectively combat oxidative stress when applied topically, helping to mitigate various

    #794 5 Ways To Speed Up Fat Loss Naturally!

    #794 5 Ways To Speed Up Fat Loss Naturally!

    The most important thing to understand about fat loss is that your metabolism runs the show.
    The Greek definition for metabolism is to “transform”. A healthy metabolism takes different substrates (proteins, fats, carbs, body fat, etc) and transforms it into energy.
    When this happens, your body creates heat (energy) which raises your basal metabolic rate.
    The goal is not a fast metabolism, but an efficient one.
    I’m going to share with you the 5 best ways to fix your metabolism so you can speed up fat loss naturally… and the best part? Willpower is not required, no calories are counted… in fact this will be easy!

    #793 The WORST Foods Causing Chronic Inflammation & Decreasing Our Lifespan! with Brett Ender

    #793 The WORST Foods Causing Chronic Inflammation & Decreasing Our Lifespan! with Brett Ender

    Today, I am blessed to have Brett Ender here with me. He is the co-founder and co-host of The Meat Mafia Podcast with Harrison Gray, exploring food and nutrition with guests. Ender is also the co-founder of Noble, a beef protein isolate.
    In this episode, Brett discusses corporate dominance in the food industry, where profit often outweighs nutrition. He also emphasizes the financial benefits of healthier dietary choices and the importance of prioritizing protein intake. Despite his focus on animal products, he advocates for dietary flexibility. Lastly, he challenges misconceptions about agriculture's environmental impact, highlighting its relatively minor role compared to other industries.

    [07:40] Corporate Dominance and Regulatory Disparity in the Food Industry
    Brett highlights how many large, publicly traded companies dominate the food supply chain. These companies prioritize profit at the expense of producing healthy, nutritious foods. Their focus on efficiency may lead to the proliferation of ultra-processed foods. Brett discusses the discrepancy between government regulations on food options in public schools, where nutritious choices like whole milk are restricted while highly processed options are available.  [12:30] Brett's Path to Healing Through Nutrient-Rich Diet 
    Brett's journey with ulcerative colitis led him to reevaluate his diet. He made a conscious decision to prioritize nutrient-dense foods, particularly animal protein, as a means of healing. Despite financial constraints, Brett opted for investing in high-quality, nourishing foods, rather than relying on medications. He emphasizes the cost-effectiveness of preventive healthcare through dietary changes, compared to the financial burden of hospital bills.  [19:40] The Financial Benefits of Healthier Dietary Choices
    Brett highlights the importance of quantifying the cost savings and benefits associated with making healthier dietary choices.  Compare the cost of grass-fed meat at the grocery store versus fast food options like Taco Bell, as well as the financial savings from fasting. [32:50] Prioritizing Protein Intake
    Brett emphasizes the importance of simplicity for dietary choices. He suggests aiming for a gram of protein per pound of ideal body weight from animal products.  By sticking to protein sources that you enjoy, you can establish a solid foundation for their nutritional intake without getting overwhelmed by sourcing or other details initially. [39:35] Dietary Flexibility: Finding Balance Beyond 'The Meat Mafia'
    Despite having a podcast called "The Meat Mafia" and sharing his healing journey with animal products, Brett acknowledges the importance of dietary flexibility.  He mentions that while the majority of his calories come from animal products, he incorporates fruits, vegetables, and other foods prepared by his girlfriend. This highlights the idea that dietary approaches should be adaptable to individual preferences, tolerances, and circumstances. [47:50] Rethinking Agriculture's Impact
    Brett highlights the misconception that agriculture, particularly conventional methods involving confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs), contri

The best

Hey Ben. I discovered you on Facebook about 2 weeks ago and then your podcast. I can not thank you enough for the information and content you provide through these platforms. I am insulin resistance and I have a fatty liver, as someone who trying to look for ways to improve my health I found that there was so much out there and a lot of the times it was over complicated. Listening to this podcast I felt empowered as the information was explained in a way that I could understand. I started applying some of the advice on the podcasts n the 3/6/23 and have since lost 5kgs. Cravings are crazy I must say but I get through them. Please keep up the good work!
