    Detoxing Mercury with Tim Gray

    Tim Gray received the double whammy hit of several mercury amalgam fittings and heavy sushi consumption. The end result was severe mercury toxicity. He used several therapies to bring himself back to life including hyperbaric oxygen and chelation therapy. This was the birth of the United Kingdom's top biohacker.
    In this interview he talks about what symptoms point to mercury toxicity, hair tissue mineral analysis, Dr Andrew Cutler, the lithium connection, his favorite intravenous treatments, why bitters are helpful for the gallbladder, EMFs, the best place to sit on an airplane, intermittent fasting, how to increase stomach acid, how to deactivate the sp!ke pr0te1n, and his favorite health gadget used at home.

    Analyzing My Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis Results with Clark Englebert

    Analyzing My Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis Results with Clark Englebert

    Do you believe in copper toxicity? Do you think that hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA) is a legitimate science? Can you use HTMA to diagnose hormonal imbalances? Clark Englebert of Nutritional Analytics shares his philosophy on "nutritional balancing" and the shifts in HTMA results that he's seen working with clients in as little as three months.
    The question that I would like answered is: Is my high copper in my test caused by high dosing copper supplements for two months or is it caused by me being vegan and vegetarian for two thirds of my life? The answer might be revealed in my next HTMA test in three months.

    Q&A: Answering Listener Questions

    Inbetween a million things breaking at my off grid homestead I had a few minutes to answer questions that listeners sent in. I talk about iodine supplementation, what makes my vitamin C different, how much cod liver oil to take, how to fix male hair loss, heart palpitations, taking breaks from supplements, how ascorbic acid affects our gut microbiome, thoughts on BPC-157, sodium ascorbate vs ascorbic acid, good starting dose for ascorbic acid, and more.

    Does Everyone Have Subclinical Metal Toxicity? with Clark Engelbert

    Does Everyone Have Subclinical Metal Toxicity? with Clark Engelbert

    For over a decade I've been hearing health educators talk about heavy metals and how dangerous they are to human health. I didn't realize how surface level the conversation was until I met Clark Engelbert of Nutritional Analytics.
    In this interview he explains why people have mineral imbalance, why heavy metals are the single greatest health problem on planet earth, phosphate fertilizers and how they affect our soil that grows all of our food, organic versus inorganic, why all heavy metals aren't bad, the scientific validity behind hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA) testing, why DNA isn't the "final boss", ionomics, ionic mimicry, how metals affect our mind and emotions, photobiomodulation, the class of metallothioneins, low ferritin, the power of sulfur, zinc and copper ratio, what to prioritize for heavy metal detox, and much more.

Transparent and honest

Great products produced by someone who has dedicated his life to researching whole natural health world. Matt has done the deep dive into the synergistic relationships between our bodies and supplements and our environment. Not afraid the recant when he finds new information regardless of how it may affect his bottom line.
