    How To Activate Your Heroic Potential with Brian Johnson

    How To Activate Your Heroic Potential with Brian Johnson

    Angela is joined by special guest, Brian Johnson, to delve into the concept of Arete, an ancient Greek word meaning virtue or excellence. Brian emphasises the importance of living with Arete to close the gap between one's potential and actual self. They discuss the significance of energy, work, and love as the "big three" fundamentals for a fulfilling life.

    The conversation touches on topics such as building anti-fragile confidence, the role of meditation in improving consciousness, and the necessity of humility in maintaining success. Brian shares practical tips for optimising daily routines, focusing on the process rather than the outcome, and cultivating a mindset of continuous improvement

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    Prioritise energy, work, and love by focusing on eating, moving, sleeping, breathing, and focusing the mind consistently.
    Embrace challenges as opportunities to grow stronger by maintaining faith, having a plan, and being prepared for setbacks.
    Start and end each day intentionally to set the tone for productivity and well-being.
    Recognise the importance of humility in acknowledging the need to consistently sharpen your skills and prioritize self-care.
    Plan and structure your day to align with your vision of a successful and fulfilling day, focusing on the small things that matter most.

    BEST MOMENTS

    "The science, as I understand it, is unequivocal. You need to have a sense of what you want, but then you need to rub it up against reality."

    "The higher the mountain, the more important the most basic fundamentals are. You better be doing the smallest little things well."

    "I adamantly do not agree with the basic idea of the law of attraction that states that you simply need to imagine that which you want to see manifested in your life."

    "I love the separation between the process and the outcome. Clearly we want to have goals, outcome goals that we're thinking about."

    "The first and most importantly, think about that. What would a masterpiece day look like for you?"

    Bitesize Biohack: Longevity, Detoxification & Cellular Energy with Dr Christopher Shade

    Bitesize Biohack: Longevity, Detoxification & Cellular Energy with Dr Christopher Shade

    Angela is joined by Dr Christopher Shade to talk about the importance of phosphatidylcholine in the body and how it plays a crucial role in cell membranes and organelles. They also delve into the significance of maintaining healthy membranes for optimal biochemical power and the consequences of damaged membranes. The conversation then shifts to the topic of toxicity, specifically mercury, and the process of detoxification.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    Phosphatidylcholine is an important component of cell membranes and membranous organelles, and its deficiency can lead to cell disruption and dysfunction.
    Membranes play a crucial role in driving biochemical power in the body by separating opposites and maintaining polarity.
    Mercury toxicity can be a concern, especially from consuming larger fish like tuna and swordfish. Choosing smaller fish with lower mercury levels is recommended.
    Mercury detox involves using glutathione and glutathione S-transferase to release mercury from proteins in cells, pushing it out of the cell with the help of ATP and magnesium, and eliminating it through bile flow and stool.

    BEST MOMENTS

    "Membrane drives all biochemical power in the body by separating opposites." - Interviewee

    "You can eat those as your sole protein source three times a day and never become toxic." - Interviewee

    "The way you do mercury detox, and this is really a model for how you do all detox." - Interviewee

    "We should live really strongly past our 80s. We should pretty easily get up to around 100."

    Happy Hormones, Happy You - with Dr Milli Raizada

    Happy Hormones, Happy You - with Dr Milli Raizada

    Angela is joined by Dr Milli Raizada who discusses the topic of hormone imbalance, specifically focusing on oestrogen dominance and its impact on women's health. She breaks down the concept of oestrogen dominance and explains that it can occur due to various factors such as excess oestrogen production, impaired oestrogen breakdown, and exposure to oestrogen mimickers in the environment.

    Dr. Milli also talks about the importance of understanding the role of hormones in the body and how they can be influenced by lifestyle factors such as nutrition, exercise, sleep, and stress management, addressing the challenges in diagnosing and treating hormone imbalances within the current medical system, highlighting the need for more research and personalised approaches to care.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    Oestrogen dominance is a complex issue that can occur through multiple mechanisms, including high oestrogen levels, low progesterone levels, and exposure to xenoestrogens.
    Lifestyle factors such as nutrition, exercise, sleep, and avoiding toxic substances play a crucial role in hormone balance and overall health.
    Perimenopause is a phase characterised by fluctuating and declining oestrogen levels, which can lead to various symptoms such as weight gain, brain fog, and mood changes.
    Personalised management plans, including hormone replacement therapy (HRT), can be beneficial for women experiencing perimenopausal symptoms, but lifestyle changes should also be incorporated.
    Body identical HRT, which includes oestrogen and progesterone, is the recommended approach, while bioidentical HRT is unregulated and lacks robust clinical trials. Progesterone therapy can be individualised based on patient needs and preferences.

    BEST MOMENTS

    "We know oestrogen is broken down and then we look at those oestrogen metabolites... they have been associated and correlated with certain health conditions."

    "We need to remember that [the NHS] is an excellent system for people who are presenting who are unwell and not necessarily people who are wanting preventative care."

    "Nutrition is the biggest pillar in the chapter in my book... eating unprocessed whole foods is very important."

    Bitesize: Unlocking Vitality -The Secret Hack to Skyrocket Your Metabolism & Energy with Dr Steven Gundry

    Bitesize: Unlocking Vitality -The Secret Hack to Skyrocket Your Metabolism & Energy with Dr Steven Gundry

    Angela presents a bitesize featuring Dr. Stephen Gundry, a renowned cardiologist and author, focussing upon mitochondrial uncoupling, a fascinating process that can turbocharge metabolism and aid in weight loss. Dr. Gundry explains how mitochondria, the powerhouses of our cells, generate energy through the coupling of oxygen and protons.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    Mitochondrial uncoupling is a process that turns cells into high-performance machines, similar to a Ferrari.
    Uncoupling allows mitochondria to release excess pressure and protect themselves from damage caused by the energy production process.
    Uncoupling leads to the generation of heat, which helps in maintaining body temperature.
    Uncoupling also reduces the workload of each mitochondrion, allowing them to divide and create more mitochondria within a cell.
    Older people who are thriving and individuals in blue zones have highly uncoupled mitochondria, which contributes to their longevity and overall health.

    BEST MOMENTS

    "Believe it or not, the best way to keep your mitochondrial healthy is to uncouple them."

    "We reduce the work of each mitochondria, but because mitochondria have their own DNA, they can divide and make more mitochondria within a cell without the cell dividing."

    "And then you start looking at some of the blue zones, and it turns out that the food that these blue zones eat our foods that hopefully we'll talk about are really good at uncoupling mitochondria."

    "There's a theory of aging called the cost of living hypothesis. And it's quite a nice theory. And that says the higher your metabolic rate, the shorter your lifespan."
