    479: A Natural Treatment for Osteoporosis and Arthritis That Works (Red Pill Revolution Part 2)

    479: A Natural Treatment for Osteoporosis and Arthritis That Works (Red Pill Revolution Part 2)

    In our last episode, we introduced you to Dr. Jeremy Ayres and John Gusty, the brilliant minds behind The Red Pill Revolution: Exposing The Illusion and Hidden Agendas. Today, we delve deeper into their groundbreaking work.
    In this episode, you'll get a sneak peek into the book's powerful content. We start with Chapter One, setting the stage for the revelations that follow. Stick around until the end, where we reveal an all-natural treatment for osteoporosis and arthritis that actually works!
    Why are alcohol and tobacco legal, but psychedelics outlawed? Why are antidepressants handed out like candy? Why is something as addictive as sugar promoted on the “healthy eating” guide?
    We are constantly reminded that our noble leaders and institutions are busy working on solutions. Surely, the scary world of today must give way to a future of peace and prosperity... someday soon!
    But of course, it never happens, does it? New wars are justified, countries are bombed, citizens flee around the world, epidemics and famines come and go, oil is spilled, rainforests are cleared, stocks go up, and all the while people everywhere seem to be getting sicker and weaker.
    The same question always hangs over everything: with all the taxes we pay and all the great advances in technology and learning, why doesn’t it ever seem to get better?
    The most obvious answer must be that a better world was never the intention. If you look carefully, the situation everywhere seems to be getting worse. That can only be deliberate.
    We are told that the world is making progress, but the reality is that it gets better only for a select few. By any sensible measure, the rest of us are constantly slipping further into physical, mental, and spiritual sickness.
    Illness must be part of the plan.
    Enter Dr. Jeremy Ayres and John Gusty, co-authors of The Red Pill Revolution and today's guests on Food Heals. This book may be a hard pill to swallow, but it's a necessary conversation for anyone wishing to sanely navigate the chaotic and predatory culture we all find ourselves in. We all know something is just not right. We all sense the imbalance, injustice, and insanity. But what can we actually do about it? Who and what can be trusted?

    477: Metabolism Makeover: How Ketones Optimize Metabolic Health with Michael Brandt

    477: Metabolism Makeover: How Ketones Optimize Metabolic Health with Michael Brandt

    What if I told you our metabolism is under attack?
    88% of Americans are “metabolically unhealthy.”
    75% of Americans are overweight or obese.
    34% of Americans are pre-diabetic, and 9.4% are diabetic.
    Metabolism, or the body’s process of converting food into energy, is vital to our health. A strong metabolism can help promote better sleep, control mood, manage weight, and improve energy levels. An unhealthy metabolism can have the opposite effect.
    People who are metabolically unhealthy have less-than-ideal biomarkers, like blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar levels. Chronic diseases, such as diabetes or cardiovascular issues, are linked to poor metabolic health. These conditions are among the leading causes of death in the United States.
    Luckily, there is hope. Enter Ketones.
    Ketones are a natural source of fuel for your body. They are often created when your stored carbs are depleted, triggering your body to convert fat into ketones for fuel. Unlike fats, ketones can cross the blood-brain barrier, allowing ketones to fuel both the brain and the body.
    Compared to other sources of energy like glucose or fat, ketones are a more efficient fuel that can produce more power while using less oxygen.
    Ketone levels can be measured in a number of ways and are a key biomarker to assess metabolic health.
    Ancient humans relied on ketones for fuel, not sugar. But due to modern diets and sedentary lifestyles, we often eat more carbs than we need and store the excess. This prevents our bodies from running on ketones, often leading to reduced energy levels, unwanted weight gain, and chronic metabolic diseases.
    My guest today believes that the best version of yourself starts with good metabolic health—and ketones are the answer. Michael Brandt is the Co-founder of H.V.M.N., who makes the shot, Ketone IQ, a little shot of ketones you can take on a daily basis.
    The advantages of taking ketones include sustained energy, mental clarity, endurance and recovery, weight management, metabolic health, longevity, and more.

    474: The Art of Olive Oil: Maximizing Nutrition, Freshness, and Flavor with T.J. Robinson

    474: The Art of Olive Oil: Maximizing Nutrition, Freshness, and Flavor with T.J. Robinson

    Have you ever tasted something so good, so fresh that you can never go back to your old ways of eating? That's how I feel about olive oil. And today, I'm excited to share this culinary revelation with you for just $1. But let me take you back to where it all began.
    The first time I went to Italy, I experienced fresh olive oil for the first time. It wasn't that I had never tasted olive oil before in the States, but the difference was profound. I was savoring olive oil made fresh from olives grown on the property we were staying at, in Ravello, off the Amalfi coast. It was an unforgettable experience, and I knew I couldn't go back to store-bought olive oil, so I ended up shipping six bottles of it home.
    The same thing happened to T. J. Robinson, also known as the Olive Oil Hunter. He also had a transformative encounter with olive oil in Italy. He discovered that olive oil packs the most flavor and health benefits when it's fresh from the farm. That's the issue with typical supermarket olive oils—they lack freshness, sitting on shelves for months and growing stale.
    Known for his “platinum palate,” T. J. is one of the few Americans invited to serve as a judge in prestigious Italian olive oil tasting competitions and he knew he was the one to solve this problem. And so he did! That's when Fresh-Pressed Olive Oil Club was born.
    And now you and I get to experience this olive oil from small, award-winning farms, thanks to T. J., our guest on today's Food Heals podcast. When I tasted T. J.'s farm-fresh oils, I fell in love with their vibrant, grassy flavors. They elevate salads, veggies, pasta, and make exquisite salad dressings.
    Today, T. J. is dedicated to importing rare fresh-pressed olive oil, the most flavorful and healthiest extra virgin olive oil available. Until now, obtaining such quality year-round in the U.S. has been nearly impossible. Rest assured, all of T. J.'s oils are independently lab-tested and certified for 100% purity.
    The freshness, flavor, and health benefits of this just-pressed oil will astonish you ... it will utterly blow away any olive oil you can find in the U.S. And that’s for one simple reason: This is fresh-pressed supreme extra virgin olive oil—raced here by jet straight from the olive harvest and it's independently certified to be 100% pure extra virgin.
    As an introduction to his Fresh-Pressed Olive Oil Club, T. J. offers a remarkable opportunity. For just $1, you can receive a full-size $39 bottle of one of the world's finest artisanal olive oils—fresh from the new harvest. This offer isn't tied to any commitment to purchase anything, now or ever.
    Ready to taste the difference freshness makes? Visit GetFresh323.com to claim your free $39 bottle and pay only $1 for shipping.
