    The Benefits of Vagus Stimulation to Stress Response with JP Errico of Truvaga

    The Benefits of Vagus Stimulation to Stress Response with JP Errico of Truvaga

    We are surrounded by stress daily - whether it be environmental stress, physical stress, psychosocial stress, and the like - what can we do in order to have better stress response?

    In this episode, Bryce Wylde is joined by JP Errico of Truvaga. JP Errico is a highly accomplished individual with a diverse range of expertise as an executive, entrepreneur, and inventor. He is the founder of Truvaga, a team of professionals who work well together to solve problems and who strive to do something meaningful to help people.

    as they talked about ways to stimulate the vagus nerve. The vagus nerve is considered the main nerve of your parasympathetic nervous system which, when activated, sends signals to the brain to alter brain activity. This contributes to releasing stress and anxiety, inflammation, digestion, and lowering blood pressure.

    Bryce and JP discuss the story behind the vagus stimulation device that Truvaga has to offer, relating it to how DNA results are able to showcase a personalized read through what the body needs and how the device can support that.

    Here are the highlights of this episode:
    00:00 Introduction
    01:01 Background
    02:24 Electrode Implantation
    03:34 Sympathetic vs. Parasympathetic
    07:16 Activation of the Vagus Nerve
    09:41 DNA and Stress Response
    11:26 Using a Vagus Activation Device
    13:27 People Who Benefit
    14:03 Conclusion

    Biohacking Your Brain with PJ Sorbo of WAVi Medical (Recorded at A4M World Congress)

    Biohacking Your Brain with PJ Sorbo of WAVi Medical (Recorded at A4M World Congress)

    Do you have control over your own body’s control center? A healthy brain allows you to do just that. 

    In this episode, Bryce Wylde is joined by Paul (PJ) Sorbo, Director of Sales  of WAVi Medical. WAViMed has the technology to conduct readings of your brain measurement in order to figure out how much energy our brain has to process sensory information and how quick that signal happens. This is called the EEG.

    Bryce and Paul discuss how the EEG is capable of detecting a number of conditions that are specific to an individual. Knowing this information allows you and your practitioner to pinpoint what lifestyle changes, supplementation, and other modes of intervention are needed in order to prevent cases of brain conditions, sleep disorders, and the like.

    Here are the highlights of today’s episode:
    00:00 Introduction
    02:07 What is EEG?
    04:13 Neuroplasticity
    07:12 The Benefits of Having a Personalized Diagnosis of the Brain

    Uncovering the Truth About Sunscreen with Dr. Guerry Grune of 3rd Rock Essentials

    Uncovering the Truth About Sunscreen with Dr. Guerry Grune of 3rd Rock Essentials

    Extreme sun exposure leads to tolls on  your skin and can eventually lead to greater risk of skin cancer and other skin diseases. With that, the vast majority is advised to use sunscreen, but is it enough to combat the ultraviolet rays of the sun?

    In this episode, Kashif is joined by the CTO and Founder of 3rd Rock Essentials, Guerry Grune, PhD, PA.  Guerry shares how his life might have been one long (part-time) endless summer if it hadn’t been for three events that led him to create 3rd Rock—and change sunscreen history forever.
    The first was the melanoma doctors found in 1992 on his long-time surfing partner—only 22 at the time. Seeing his friend’s surfing career cut short (though luckily, not his life) was Guerry’s first bitter taste of the unforgiving reality of overexposure to—or under protection from—the sun.
    Guerry expresses how he after a formula that guaranteed full, long-lasting protection from UVA and UVB rays without endocrine disruptors or other toxic ingredients. But even that wasn’t enough. He wanted a product that was good for the skin—to make it healthier, younger, stronger. This was due to his knowledge that existing sun protection products only protect the body from UVB, and not from UVA.

    Kashif and Guerry also discuss how ingredients make the difference such as glycerin, and how working with these ingredients allowed 3rd Rock Essentials to branch out from sun protection into using silver as an antibacterial and antimicrobial ingredient which does great wonders for the body.

    Here are the highlights for this episode:

    00:00 Introduction
    02:31 Background of Dr. Guerry Grune
    08:45 The Truth About SPF and Overexposure
    12:59 Glycerin-based SPF and How it Differs from Other Sunscreen
    17:23 UVA and UVB Light Explained
     20:23 The Truth About SPF 50 and Beyond
    24:40 Alcohol Based Sunscreen and A False Sense of Security
    25:45 Neutrolene and Silver Oxide
    32:04 Functions of Sliver
    40:07 Neosporin and Nutrasporin
    43:27 3rd Rock Essentials and Dealing with Other Health Implications

    Women and Light: Menopause, Hormones, Pregnancy, and Breastfeeding with Roudy Nassif of VivaRays

    Women and Light: Menopause, Hormones, Pregnancy, and Breastfeeding with Roudy Nassif of VivaRays

    Happy International Women's Month!

    In celebration of women all over the world, we bring you an episode that focuses on the impact of light on women's health. Women have different cycles in life that can be greatly improved just by ensuring their bodies are in sync with the natural light provided by the sun. This is due to the hormones that increase production depending on the type of light to which their bodies are exposed.

    In this episode, Dr. Lara Varden is again joined by Roudy Nassif, Founder of VivaRays. Roudy has suffered from ADHD, headaches, and eyestrain since childhood. Despite consulting with doctors, trying different diets and supplements, and seeking advice from various health gurus, he has been unable to find relief. He also continued to struggle with sleep and productivity.

    He carried this frustration as he got older, still unable to find any solution, until he tried farming and living a life exposed to the outdoors with sunrise and sunset just around the corner. This life-changing experience allowed his health to transform, resulting in remarkable changes to his sleep, focus, and overall health. This led to his curiosity in studying light and its effects on the circadian rhythm.

    They discuss the basics of how light impacts hormones and menopause in a woman's body, delving deeper into the science discussed during the episode entitled "How Light Affects Our Circadian Rhythm and Overall Health", the seventh episode of The DNA Talks Podcast since its launch.

    This episode also involves the discussion of how light dictates the input of stress signals, which not only affects the mother but also her baby, illustrating the perfect example of oneness and how health flows through this special bond. Dr. Lara and Roudy delve into how this affects pregnancy, breastfeeding, and milk production.

    Here are the highlights for this episode:

    00:00 Introduction
    03:39 Science Behind Light, Hormones, and Menopause
    08:44 Changing the Input of Stress Signals
    21:55 Breaking the Cycle of Toxins in Hormones
    25:09 First Thing to Keep Your Body in Rhythm with Light
    27:24 Second Thing to Keep Your Body in Rhythm with Light
    30:05 Protecting the Eyes and the Skin
    40:56Pregnancy, Breastfeeding, and Light
    49:28 Recommendations of Women and Light Exposure
