    Dr. Louis Ignarro and the Discovery of Nitric Oxide, How It Prevents Heart Disease, Erectile Dysfunction, & Why It Is So Important For Our Overall Health

    Dr. Louis Ignarro and the Discovery of Nitric Oxide, How It Prevents Heart Disease, Erectile Dysfunction, & Why It Is So Important For Our Overall Health

    What do heart health and erectile dysfunction have in common? A tiny molecule called Nitric Oxide (NO)… but we’ll let the “Father of Viagra” explain that.
    Today’s guest, Dr. Louis Ignarro, PhD is a distinguished Professor Emeritus of Molecular & Medical Pharmacology at UCLA and has been a research scientist for over 40 years. Dr. Ignarro is known for his discovery of Nitric Oxide and its many life-critical biological actions in the human body, a discovery that led to winning a Nobel Prize and Viagra.
    In this discussion, Chase and Dr. Ignarro talk about his Nobel Prize-winning discovery and how Nitric Oxide plays a critical role in improving cardiovascular health, longevity, and even your sex life. He also shares a few simple and actionable insights on what you can do to naturally boost your heart health and prevent disease. This is truly a discussion you won’t want to miss!

    Key Highlights
    Dr. Ignarro first breaks down what the free radical Nitric Oxide is and how it affects the human body, particularly in terms of cardiovascular health. Our body produces tiny amounts of NO which has been found to lower blood pressure and prevent harmful blood clots, thus supporting heart health and preventing strokes. Why is the discovery of Nitric Oxide so important for the human race? Simply put, this enabled the scientific community to discover how we can naturally boost NO in the body to improve heart health: through nutrition and physical activity.  Dr. Ignarro highlights the role of nutrition in NO production and how a quality, balanced diet contributes to heart health. “If you don’t eat enough protein, you’re not going to make enough NO,” he says. Plus, Louis emphasizes the crucial role of antioxidants in heart health and what fruits and vegetables have the highest amounts of antioxidants. One of the keys to increasing longevity (and quality of life) is increasing cardiovascular health and mental health. Dr. Ignarro shares his thoughts on the obesity epidemic, the harmful relationship between Nitric Oxide and body fat, and how that’s impacting the severity of cardiovascular disease in America. Why is Dr. Ignarro known as the “Father of Viagra”? How does NO impact erectile dysfunction? Listen in as he shares the story behind his discovery that made the development of Viagra possible.

    Dr. Trish Ferrer on Developing a Healing Mindset, Intimacy and Sexuality, and Embracing Your Divine Masculine and Feminine Energ

    Dr. Trish Ferrer on Developing a Healing Mindset, Intimacy and Sexuality, and Embracing Your Divine Masculine and Feminine Energ

    True healing begins with your mindset. Health, wellness, and healing goes beyond the physical experience. There’s an esoteric, or spiritual, branch of medicine that’s little talked about but majorly impactful. Let’s unpack that concept and explore how spirituality might help you heal.
    Dr. Trish Ferrer, ND is a Naturopathic Doctor by trade and a Healer by purpose. She is also a speaker, writer, activist and coach that combines healthcare, feminine energetics, and spirituality to sustain your health. Ultimately, she “specializes in people, who they are and the complexity of their humanity”.
    In this discussion, Chase and Trish discuss the interconnections between modern medicine and esoteric medicine, how to develop the healing mindset, and the powerful relationship between physical, spiritual, and emotional health. She also shares her top advice on men’s health, divine intimacy and sexuality, and the benefits of embracing your masculine and feminine energies.

    Key Highlights
    Dr. Trish sheds light on how our physical health is connected to our spiritual and emotional health and wellness. So often, people come to Trish struggling with chronic conditions or health issues, having seen several doctors with no success or diagnosis. Trish helps treat their physical ailment, but also helps them look at other areas of their life, like childhood or relationships, to find the root cause of their issue. Once they do that, physical health will be restored. Trish breaks down her meaning behind spirituality and esoteric medicine and talks about how to develop the mindset that’s needed to heal.  Empowerment and education are critical in the healthcare system and medicinal space. The philosophy of healing is really about being present in the moment. Once we are aware, informed, and empowered, we’re able to tackle the obstacles to health and wellness. Listen in to hear Trish describe the role of empowerment and education in her naturopathy practice and how this impacts her patients’ outcomes. Trish shares her #1 tip for men’s health (and smashing the patriarchy): Let go of “what a man should be”. Embrace your masculine AND feminine energies. Connect with your vulnerabilities and sensitivities because those are also your strengths.  Chase and Trish break down the role of “kingship” and “queenship”, or the divine masculine and feminine, in sexual health. Plus, Trish shares how you can be strong AND tender at the same time as well as how to make your partner (or potential partner) feel safe around you. Episode resources:

    Robert Sikes Talks Natural Bodybuilding, Keto, Transforming Your Relationship With Food, and Addressing Diet Culture Controversies

    Robert Sikes Talks Natural Bodybuilding, Keto, Transforming Your Relationship With Food, and Addressing Diet Culture Controversies

    Have you ever considered trying a trendy diet? Not sure if it’s right for you? Are you turned off by the controversy surrounding it? What is the best diet for bodybuilding and transforming your body?
    Robert Sikes is a natural competitive bodybuilder and entrepreneur who attributes much of his health and wellness to adopting the ketogenic lifestyle. Although this diet isn’t for everyone, Robert gives us a valuable perspective on how diet and lifestyle can create a ripple effect of benefits in one’s life if done with intention, care, and commitment.
    In this discussion, Robert and Chase talk about how the ketogenic diet has transformed Robert’s life in many ways, from bodybuilding to his relationships to entrepreneurship and more. He shares his candid thoughts on the controversy around the ketogenic diet, the psychology of eating and dieting, and important things you should know if you’re considering adopting a keto diet and lifestyle. Robert also talks about his new book, “Ketogenic Bodybuilding”, and where he thinks we have room to grow in the health and fitness industry.

    Key Highlights
    Robert sheds light on his history with dieting and disordered eating and how that has affected his mental health and OCD. He also shares about his discovery of the ketogenic diet and how that had positive effects on his mental and physical health, productivity, and his relationship with food. Since there’s immense controversy surrounding the keto diet, Robert talks about the various uses of the keto diet and how that has evolved over the years. “I think in 2017-2018 is when it really spiked… and since then, there’s been a massive influx of products and just marketing around the ketogenic diet, paling it as this miracle weight loss diet. There’s some truth to some of that marketing but a lot of it has been overly hyped for sure,” Robert says. Robert details his improvements in various health markers after going keto, as well as the power of combining research on diets and health trends with personal experimentation to come to your own conclusion. Want to test out the keto diet for yourself? Robert gives you this advice: Get some baseline panels done, take initial progress photos and measurements, get a composition scan done, and then try the keto diet for 3-6 months before making any conclusions. He also highlights the importance of tracking your progress and details how he maintains the keto lifestyle year-round. When you find a diet/lifestyle that makes you feel great mentally and physically (and is sustainable), you’re going to see tremendous changes in other areas of your life, like work/business and family life.  Episode resources:

    Dr. Gabrielle Lyon on Plant Protein Versus Animal Protein and How to Prevent Disease and Promote Longevity Using Muscle Centric Medicine

    Dr. Gabrielle Lyon on Plant Protein Versus Animal Protein and How to Prevent Disease and Promote Longevity Using Muscle Centric Medicine

    Animal protein, according to Dr. Gabrielle Lyon, is the key to preventing disease and promoting longevity. Plant protein can be one's alternative choice but it may be missing the mark for you in terms of total wellness potential. And what about body composition, chronic disease and illness? The common conception is that obesity is the root cause of most diseases. The reality is we don’t have a body fat problem, we’re just under-muscled… That’s the concept that drives the work of this week’s guest. 
    Dr. Gabrielle Lyon, DO is a physician who founded the concept and the Institute of Muscle Centric Medicine®. 
    In this discussion, Chase and Dr. Gabrielle Lyon have a transparent conversation about the history of food and nutritional science, the power of Muscle Centric Medicine®, and the non-negotiable science behind controversial health topics, including protein and RDAs. This is an info-packed episode that will either leave you speechless or running to share the news with your loved ones!

    Key Highlights
    Dr. Gabrielle Lyon defines Muscle Centric Medicine® as the concept that muscle is the organ of longevity that determines everything about how we age.  “If we are muscle centric, we can change the trajectory of how we age,” Dr. Gabrielle says.  The primary drivers of disease are insulin resistance and skeletal muscle. Listen in as Dr. Gabrielle breaks down the definition of insulin resistance and explains the role of glucose, blood sugar, and skeletal muscle in maintaining health and longevity.  Humans’ relationship with and understanding of food is rooted in religion and emotion, not just science. Many things have influenced what we eat and the way we eat it. Dr. Gabrielle details the history of food and nutritional science over the last 100+ years and what that means for us today. She shares the hard science you need to know behind controversial topics in nutrition including protein and the quality of protein, recommended dietary allowances (RDAs), and longevity. Should I go plant-based? What’s the difference between animal protein and plant protein? How many grams of protein should I be eating in a meal/day? What supplements should I take as a vegetarian/vegan? Tune in to hear Dr. Gabrielle’s science-backed answers! Episode resources:

    Dr. Jacey Folkers and Josh Whalen on Busting Myths and Misconceptions About Unique Men’s Health Needs and Testosterone Replacement Therapy

    Myths, lies, and half-truths run rampant when it comes to men's health, especially when it comes to testosterone and testosterone replacement therapy (a.k.a. TRT).
    Did you know that men are 25% less likely to see a physician? When it comes to health and wellness, men are often told to “man up”… but at the cost of what? Our cognition, sex drive, strength, stamina, the list goes on. That’s why this week, we’re focusing on all things men’s health. 
    Today, we speak with Dr. Jacey Folkers, Doctor of Functional Medicine and Owner of Rise to Wellness, along with Josh Whalen, Founder and CEO of Blokes, a modern men’s healthcare company. These guys are making huge strides in the field of men’s health and they’re here to share their wealth of knowledge and experience on everything from electrolytes to hormones.
    In this discussion, they address the myths and misconceptions about male hormones and TRT, the do’s and don’ts of TRT, and the role of peptides in men’s health. They also speak not only on the physical aspects of hormone replacement and support therapies, but also the emotional and mental aspects of it which are just as important.
