    The Healing Power of Mushrooms with Stephanie Moyal & Jake Mellman

    The Healing Power of Mushrooms with Stephanie Moyal & Jake Mellman

    This week, we ventured into a realm that's both ancient and cutting-edge – the world of functional mushrooms, explored through the entrepreneurial journey of cousins Stephanie Moyal and Jake Mellman, co-founders of Troop.
     
    Why mushrooms, you might ask? Well, the answer is as fascinating as it is profound. In our quest to remain vibrant and healthy in the second half of our lives, we often overlook nature's simple solutions. Mushrooms, as I've learned from Stephanie and Jake, are not just culinary delights but are packed with remarkable health benefits.
     
    Our conversation took an exciting turn as we delved into the origins of Troop. This wasn't just a business talk; it was a story of transformation, resilience, and discovery. Stephanie and Jake shared how their personal experiences during COVID led them to explore the healing properties of mushrooms. From experimenting with mushroom cultivation in a closet to creating one of the most innovative health-focused brands today, their journey is nothing short of inspiring.
     
    But this episode isn't just about Troop's journey. It's a revelation of the untapped potential of mushrooms in enhancing our health, especially as we age. We explored how these functional fungi can boost our immune system, enhance brain health, and potentially aid in the recovery process from various health challenges.
     
    For anyone over 50 looking to embrace a healthier, more vibrant lifestyle, this episode is a must-listen. It's an invitation to rethink our approach to wellness and to consider nature's humble yet powerful solutions.
     
    I invite you to join us in this fascinating discussion and discover how Troop is making mushrooms approachable and enjoyable. Let's continue to explore and embrace the wonders of nature together. Welcome to the troop!

    Coach’s Corner – The Lizard People Don’t Want You to Listen to This!

    Coach’s Corner – The Lizard People Don’t Want You to Listen to This!

    In this no-holds-barred episode, I expose the propaganda war being waged for control over our health and independence. I invite my listeners to join me in an uprising - a rebel alliance - against the lizard people who want to keep us fat, sick, and reliant on their system.  
     
    In this episode, I tackle the blatantly misleading headlines about homegrown vegetables having a bigger carbon footprint than industrial farming. I break down the actual EPA statistics about the percent of greenhouse gases coming from cattle. Spoiler alert - it's not the main culprit. The lizard people just want you to think it is so they can control the food supply and get rich off unsustainable alternatives like lab-grown meat.
     
    This is just one example of the all-out lies and manipulation designed to deteriorate our health - so we feed the medical-pharma industrial complex. I expose the unreal amounts of money being made by keeping us unhealthy - we're talking billions and trillions here. They encourage us to eat nutrient-poor processed foods, sit too much, and fill our homes with toxins. Then sell us medications and treatments when we inevitably get sick. It's a vicious cycle, but it keeps their pockets lined.  
     
    In this call-to-action episode, I equip my listeners with the knowledge needed to opt out of the matrix. I give practical tips for taking health into our own hands - eating real food, getting strong, becoming our own healthcare advocates. Just imagine what would happen if we all got truly healthy - it would mean trillions of dollars lost for big medicine and pharma. Now that's a rebel uprising!
     
    I invite you to listen to the full riveting episode and join the secret Facebook group where the resistance is organizing. You can find all the links at [my website]. Say no to the lizard people and their insidious propaganda. Join me in the lean, strong rebellion - we are stronger than they want us to believe.
