Ben Greenfield Fitness: Diet, Fat Loss and Performance

The Danger Of 'Shrooms, Eating & Supplementing "Seasonally", Whether Lectins Are Really Bad For You & Much More With Dr. Anthony Beck!

https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/beck2 I have several friends who I would consider to be VIP's, bigwigs, and leading authorities in the field of health and biohacking. Although I will respectfully keep those friends anonymous, I've noted that a relatively large majority of them have one specific man who serves as their personal physician, and he's the same guy who advises some of the world's top military personnel, Spartans, strongmen competitors and obstacle racers. That man is Dr. Anthony Beck, and he's my guest on today's podcast. As a physician who has practiced Functional Medicine for over 20 years and backed by 10's of thousands of patient encounters, Dr. Anthony G. Beck doesn't merely manage diseases ~ he helps people resolve them. Dr. Beck has earned 4 national medical board certifications, is the founder and chief medical officer for Balance Protocol Institute, is the founder and CEO of Helion Nutraceuticals and provides philanthropic care for combat veterans through groups such as Warrior Angles Foundation, Millennium TBI Network and Task Force Dagger Foundation. With extensive education in many clinical disciplines such as Functional Medicine, clinical nutrition, systems biology, epigenetics and nutrigenomics, he takes a dynamic approach to assessing, educating, and working with his patients to achieve their highest levels of wellbeing. Dr. Beck's programs involve a full array of aspects including optimizing ones environment of (air, water, light, sound, EMF), healthful lifestyle design, individualized nutrition, hormone balancing, resolving immune dysfunction, identifying hidden infectious diseases, as well as leveraging extensive laboratory and functional testing to assist patients to determine their biochemical individuality. Even more importantly, Dr. Beck wants to empower patients to demand a higher level of care from their health care providers. So not only is Dr. Beck a wealth of knowledge on advanced health tactics, medical testing, and the combination of biohacking and exercise performance, but he's also the mastermind behind a hydration tactic I've personally been experimenting with: a tiny hydration invention called Oral I.V. - which we explore in great detail in the episode "The Physician Who Personally Advises The World's Leading Health Authorities, And His Tiny Invention That Pro Athletes Swear By." Lately, Dr. Beck has been quite pesky and informative on my own Facebook page - on topics about everything from mushrooms to methylation - so I figured I'd invite him on the show to take a deep dive into some of these controversial topics he has a unique perspective on, including: Psychedelics Lectins Energy Medicine Devices Dietary waters vs pH effect on body EMF devices for health and their consequences During our discussion, you'll discover: -Anthony's fascinating morning routine that includes near infrared, far infrared and photobiomodulation... [00:11:10] -Why Anthony only takes certain supplements during certain seasons, and how he determines that... [00:22:29] -Why Anthony has his Spartan athletes eat differently at different latitudes and why you can eat more fruits and raw vegetables in the spring and summer... [00:30:53] -Why you don't really need to worry about the pH of the water that you drink, and whether carbonated water will really damage your teeth... [00:38:43] -Why Dr. Beck believes the whole Plant Paradox "lectins are bad for you" argument is a bad hypothesis... [00:50:01] -Dr. Beck's favorite self-quantification tests and why... [00:51:19] -The reason Dr. Beck doesn't use cannabidiol based on the RS1135840 and RS1065852... [00:58:00] -All the damage that Dr. Beck has seen 'shrooms do and the damage they can cause... [01:02:32] -How Dr. Beck personally mitigates the effects of EMF, and why he isn't a fan of "EMF" blockers... [01:14:00] -And much more!

Past Episodes

You've no doubt heard of it by now... In an attempt to live longer, some anti-aging enthusiasts are getting themselves injected with the blood of young humans, via a process deemed: plasmaphoresis. This podcast is about several age reversal therapies. It's also about biohacking Alzheimers. It's about all these therapies (senolytics, exosomes, gdf-11, etc) that scientists have been talking about for age reversal. The podcast is about biological aging clocks and biomarkers to measure them. You'll learn about ways that you can biohack Alzheimer's disease, how to measure your biological age, how to reverse aging, what the biggest obstacle to age reversal is, how to get more involved in the anti-aging community and more. About the Guests Mark Urdahl, is a technology entrepreneur from the Silicon Valley.  He has numerous patents and has worked in big data.  He began his career at IBM's medical instruments subsidiary that pioneered plasmaphoresis.  Mark founded the Youngblood Institute to advance new uses for well established therapeutic plasma exchange therapies which have recently evidenced a previously undocumented potential to rejuvenate the body's own stem cells, restore aging immune systems, and prevent the onset of many age-related disease condition, so that we might live healthy as we age and ultimately live longer lives.     Tom Ingloglia first appeared on this podcast in the episode "The Next Big Anti-Aging Drug: Everything You Need To Know About "NAD"."  As you learn in that episode, Tom is a private investor with a master's degree in finance. In the midst of trading, investing in technology and developing real estate in Costa Rica, Tom became very sick. He was initially prescribed antibiotics, suffered from an adverse reaction and was told that he'd have stomach problems for the rest of his life. In the years that followed, Tom also developed severe food allergies. His symptoms worsened, and he next began dealing with insomnia, anxiety, muscle pain, tendinopathies, joint pain, chronic fatigue syndrome, altered and clouded cognition and headaches. He finally had a mental breakdown in 2008. After a prolonged period of taking antibiotics, Tom began experiencing tendonitis throughout his fingers, hands, wrists and ankles and feet, so he started taking pain medications to relieve this pain. He had to give up his career in trading because his sole focus for the next eight years would be on finding a cure to his growing symptoms. His life consisted of working with physical therapists, going to the gym, going to new doctors, and trying new foods to see if it would help. Throughout Tom's eight-year battle, he was prescribed consistently and persistently more medication. For six years, he was taking excessive amounts of Hydrocodone and Tramadol every day. Tom became obsessed with researching symptoms and treatments, and learned about the NAD+ treatment. He visited a clinic, and on Day 7 of his treatment, "It hit me. I started feeling better. I felt amazing. There was a calm that came over me. I felt safe. I just had no cravings for drugs or pain meds. There was no need for them. I just didn't have the excruciating pain that I had before. I felt eight years of pain melting away." Tom has nearly fully recovered, using related treatments to NAD+, and has engaged two cofounders to assist him in building out a facility to help bring this treatment to others in similar situations. In my conversation with Mark and Tom, you'll discover: -The history of The Young Blood Institute and how "heterochronic plasma exchange" works...16:00 Heterochronic plasma means simply removing old plasma and replacing it with "young" plasma. Others are experimenting with this concept. What Mark does is different from a plasma "infusion." Plasma is approximately half of our blood volume.  Mark began with IBM Biomedical Systems, who had invented what we now call the "blood cell processor." -The intricate means of testing used on mice...22:15 Basically creating "siamese twins" with mice by stitching them together. Similar procedures have been conducted on humans for over 50 years. Mark wanted to recruit the best medical professionals to the Young Blood Institute. Many of them have been doing it for 30-40 years. -What, if any, are the risks of these plasma exchanges...29:10 Roughly a 4% risk of a transfusion reaction, which is akin to what you might experience donating blood. One of the safer procedures in the medical field today. You go through 6 exchanges as part of a protocol. -The network of doctors that Mark and Tom have built to do a plasma exchange...32:42 There are medical professionals all over the U.S. that can do the procedure. Submit an inquiry on the Young Blood Institute website to find a doctor that is near you. -What anti-aging biomarkers Mark is tracking at the Young Blood Institute...34:51 They have more technology testing capability than Stanford, Johns Hopkins and Harvard combined. Key technology: time of flight mass cytometry. Single cell proteionomics. They are trying to develop early detection biomarkers that enables them to prevent the onset of diseases before they become significant. -The lowest hanging fruit for people to track...46:15 The YBI's concern is the function of the body, rather than the age. Your cells are not aware of your "age". -What a biological aging clock is...50:20 Zymo is a lab that has worked with Steven Horvath. Zymo DNA Methylation Aging Clock Looked at DNA, and seen a pattern from methyl groups attached to certain parts of the genome. -How can we track biological aging, or slow down our biological aging clock?...52:30 Inflammatory markers, heart age, brain age, lung age, skin elasticity. -The anti-aging booth that Mark and Tom will be operating at a conference called RAAD Fest...54:45 Revolution Against Aging and Death Want to have a contest where people calculate their age, and track their progress. Mark and Tom have one of the largest booths at the conference. -Whether NAD actually gets absorbed into a cell via injections or IV...1:00:30 How does Ben feel with an injection? Answer: Incredible. Tom doesn't recommend the injection due to the level of discomfort. -Why compounded formulas such as glutathione and Vitamin B could be taken off the market soon...1:07:30 There's a review similar to a court hearing, where people argue for and against glutathione. Taken off the market for compounding pharmacies. Tom "has his own reasons" for why this could be deemed unsafe. Core problem: the vitamins don't have any intellectual property. Could affect the costs of healthcare. -How to use technologies such as Vielight and exosomes to address Alzheimer's...1:14:30 Alzheimers is a $500 billion industry; the 6th leading cause of death. A Vielight is basically a laser light for your nose and head; photobiomodulation on your skull. -What GDF11 mRNA is and how it works to improve hearing, smell and sight...1:25:30 GDF11 is a DNA repair molecule; makes stem cells active again. Patients see improvements in sex drive, vision, smell, hearing, etc. Legal hurdles to being able to administer it. "Unofficial" results are very positive. -How senolytics works as a therapy for aging and Alzheimer's, and the importance of quercetin and tocotrienols...1:33:45 Describes small molecules that lead to the death of "zombie" cells that don't help the rest of your body.

What you are about to discover in this podcast is one of the most advanced, fringe, cutting-edge biohacks and forays into self-experimentation I've ever done... ...a full body stem-cell makeover at the Docere Clinic in Salt Lake City, Utah...including a little-known type of compound called an "exosome". Dr. Harry Adelson, my first guest on today's podcast, began his training in regenerative injection therapy (prolotherapy) in 1998 while in his final year at The National College of Naturopathic Medicine, in Portland, Oregon after having been cured of a rock-climbing injury with prolotherapy. During his residency program in Integrative Medicine at the Yale/Griffin Hospital in Derby, Connecticut, he volunteered after hours in a large homeless shelter in Bridgeport, Connecticut, providing regenerative injection therapies to the medically underserved while gaining valuable experience. He opened Docere Clinics in Salt Lake City in 2002 and from day one, his practice has been 100% regenerative injection therapies for the treatment of musculoskeletal pain conditions. In 2006 he incorporated platelet-rich plasma and ultrasound-guided injection into his armamentarium, in 2010, bone marrow aspirate concentrate and adipose-derived stem cells, and in 2013, fluoroscopic-guided injection (motion X-ray). Since February of 2010, Dr. Adelson has performed over 4,000 bone marrow and adipose-derived adult stem cell procedures, placing him among those most experienced in the world with the use of autologous stem cells for the treatment of musculoskeletal pain conditions. Dr. Amy Killen is also a guest on today's show. She joined Docere Medical after moving to Utah from Portland, Oregon, where she was the Medical Director of an anti-aging and regenerative medicine specialty practice. Dr. Killen's medical training began in Dallas, where she attended medical school at UT Southwestern and received her M.D. degree, graduating in the top 10% of her class. She completed a residency in Emergency Medicine at the University of Arizona and served as Chief Resident during her final year. After working as a board-certified emergency physician for more than 7 years, Dr. Killen began studying and training in anti-aging, regenerative, and aesthetic medicine in hopes of approaching patients' wellness and beauty from a different perspective and with a new toolbox of innovative and effective treatment options. Advanced training has included completion of the fellowship in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine through the American Association of Anti-Aging Medicine and certification training in Age Management Medicine. Dr. Killen is certified by the National Institute of Medical Aesthetics in both basic and advanced cosmetic injections and trained with Dr. Lisbeth Roy to learn the O-Shot and P-Shot PRP procedures. Further PRP injection training was provided by PRP Life Lift and she completed the Hair Coach certification program with Dr. Alan Bauman in Florida, which taught a comprehensive approach to non-surgical hair loss. Dr. Killen learned how to extract and process stem cells as part of the U.S. Stem Cell Training Course taught by leading stem cell scientist Dr. Kristin Comella. Dr. Amy Killen has also spent many hours in the operating suite learning directly from Harry Adelson N.D. at Docere Clinics. Dr. Killen has spoken nationally about PRP and stem cell therapies and teaches a physician training course for ApexBiologix outlining current best practices for using regenerative therapies in aesthetics and sexual optimization. During my discussion with Harry and Amy, you'll discover: -How Harry got started with prolotherapy and PRP for pain management in farmers and construction workers... -The "Stem Cell Theory of Aging", which states that biologic aging is a result of loss function and population of stem cells in musculoskeletal tissues... -How Harry is harvesting stem cells from bone marrow, supplementing them with exosomes (the "currency" of stem cells, the inter-cellular communication blocks), and then injecting them into all major moving parts as well as skin of face, scalp, and penis... -Why exosomes may be the future of stem cell therapy... -Why umbilical and amniotic stem cells could potentially be dangerous due to exposing the body to foreign DNA... -What "MSC's" are, why are they different and better than other stem cell therapies, and how they differentiate into musculoskeletal tissues and have been called "medical signaling cells" because they trigger the healing of damaged tissues... -Why somebody would undergo a full body stem cell treatment, and whether is it going to "rejuvenate all of the cells in my body"... -What to expect after a full body stem cell makeover... Interview with Dr. Amy Killen: -What PRP therapy is, and how it differs from stem cells... -What happens when you inject stem cells into a man's "unit", and why Amy injected Ben... -Why Amy injects stem cells and PRP into vaginas, and how the O-Shot improves the power and duration of female orgasms... -The secrets of the vampire breast lift and other cosmetic procedures she has done... -What causes hair loss, and how to fix it with stem cells... -How to use stem cells and PRP to get a non-surgical facelift, and why Amy injected my face and scalp... -What V-cells are and how they work... -Post-treatment care and biohacks to enhance recovery and efficacy of the treatment... -And much more!

On my bedside is a tiny handheld unit called a "Flexpulse", which I consider to be a small, portable "DJ for my brain". By adjusting the frequency emitted by the device, I can use a 3Hz frequency to lull my brain into relaxed Delta brain waves, a 10Hz frequency to generate focused Alpha brain waves or a 23Hz frequency to produce high alert Beta brain waves. The Flexpulse generates a special kind of frequency called "PEMF", and I've personally found that placing the square pad of unit on the back of my head (directly on my occipital bone) for a night of sleep or a quick nap (often combined with the Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation you'll discover later in this article), I can knock myself out in no time flat for a perfect portion of slumber. Lately, I've been experimenting with an even more affordable alternative to the Flexpulse that seems to elicit very similar results: the ICES M1, which, in particular has been shown to increase blood flow in joints for up to three years after a single use! While small, portable devices like this are a perfect introduction to the wide variety of potential therapeutic applications of PEMF, the true "Cadillac" of PEMF therapy is a very large unit - about the size of a massage table - called the PulseCenter XL Pro. Both myself and Tony Robbins, Gerard Butler, Brandon Routh, Stevie Wonder and Rick Rubin are huge fans of this massive, whole-body-treatment setup, which can be used for everything from muscle sprains to headaches to sleep induction. Lots of American Ninja Warriors, countless Nike Master Trainers, lots of professional athletes who wish to remain anonymous for fear of having their secret weapon yanked, high profile biohackers, MLB, NBA, NFL players, high profile sports team owners, motivational speakers, entrepreneurial leaders and even professional bull riders. A few months ago, a guy named Emilio Palafox came to my house to train me on this table. The guy is a wealth of knowledge on PEMF therapy so I figured I should get him on the show! Emilio is the Channel Development Manager at Pulse Centers, spreading awareness of the game-changing, disruptive Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field (PEMF) technology. Emilio looks to identify individuals, organizations and corporations that are looking for healing, faster recovery, peak performance or all of the above. Emilio speaks about being the rising tide that lifts all boats and has been collaborating with people and organizations across the world that want to help impact humanity for the better. He is extremely grateful for the opportunity to be a part of Pulse Centers team, helping to lead and shift the collective consciousness of health, wellness, fitness and longevity. During our discussion, you'll discover: -How PEMF works...10:30 -How the cells respond to magnetic signals...14:45 -Why the earth has actually changed in terms of the grounding and earthing effect it's able to produce...19:00 -Why the PulseCenters table feel so much more powerful than the other PEMF devices...23:30 -The difference between PEMF frequencies, intensities, etc...28:30 -How to use PEMF to "charge" the brain or get nootropics delivered more efficiently to the brain...35:30 -How to use PEMF to treat areas like the testes, colon, heart, liver, etc...38:30 -The difference between the paddles vs. the rings vs. the chair vs. the bed...51:00 -How to use PEMF to increase stem cell production...57:00 -Whether you can overuse PEMF...1:05:15 -How the PulseCenters portable system works...1:08:00 -And much more...

Several months ago, in this weekly roundup, I commented about the book "Genius Foods: Become Smarter, Happier, and More Productive While Protecting Your Brain for Life", and said:  "I've just finished reading an advance copy of this book, written by my friend and former podcast guest, Max Lugavere. At first, I figured it would be another "eggs, walnut and fish make you smarter" type of book, but instead, this manuscript took a deep, deep dive into specific genes that affect intelligence and how to pair them with food, mouthwatering recipes for everything from liver to avocado-salmon bowls, and some very good, step-by-step tips for optimizing your personal environment to enhance your cognition. It is a must read, with many pages folded over in my own copy." Max, a former podcast guest in the episode "The Surprising Facts About What Bread Does To Your Brain (And What You Can Do About It)" also created the documentary "Bread Head". In the film, he explores the impact of our diets and lifestyles on brain health. Max is a also filmmaker, health and science journalist and author. He is the host of the podcast, The Genius Life. Lugavere has contributed to Medscape, Vice, Fast Company, CNN, and the Daily Beast, and appears regularly as a health and nutrition expert on the Dr. Oz Show, the Rachael Ray Show, and The Doctors. During our discussion, you'll discover: -Why a decrease in walking speed and pattern, and forgetfulness of kitchen recipes in Max's mother inspired his latest book... -Why Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease drugs are so damaging... -The little-known but serious risks of MDMA and ecstasy... -Max's interesting perspective on dopamine and abstinence from hedonism... -Why Ben eats all the bones and cartilage and skin when he has chicken... -Why a specific population of Nigerians carry the genetic risk for Alzheimers but don't get Alzheimers... -The profound effect of ketones, fish oil and extra virgin olive oil on the brain... -How you can naturally increase blood glucose and ketones simultaneously... -The potential damage of using to much fish oil while excessively limiting omega 6 fatty acids consumption... -The actual percentage of saturated fats that you should eat... -When high HDL could be a bad thing... -Many people track blood glucose - but Max is a bigger fan of tracking Homa IR, and why that is... -A blood test that can predict Alzheimer's... -And much more...

Since my big "sexual enhancement" article in the January 2018 edition of Men's Health Magazine, I've been getting plenty of questions from both men and women about how many of these so-called sexual biohacks actually work. So I decided to get an expert on the show to talk about this stuff. Dr. Judson Brandeis is a private practice Urologist in Walnut Creek, California. He has been voted by his peers as a top Urologist in the San Francisco Bay area for the past 4 years. He is a pioneer of using technology in urology and was a very early adopter of robotic surgery, lasers and MRI targeting for diagnosing and treating prostate cancer. Dr. Brandeis is now a thought leader in using GAINSWave therapy for treating erectile dysfunction and developing supplements for improving male sexual function. Dr. Brandeis has always been enthusiastic about athletic performance. He ran track and cross country for Brown University and has competed in triathlons since 1981. He brings his passion for helping men achieve their goals every day to the Pacific Urology Male Performance Center in Walnut Creek, CA. During our discussion, you'll discover: -How GAINSWave works for men, and why it's different than just "sound therapy"...11:15 -How FEMIWave works for women, and what to expect during and afterwards...16:30 -Judson's discovery of "triple therapy" to increase nitric oxide levels...21:45 -Why fermented beets do such a good job boosting nitric oxide...25:30 -The importance of L-citrulline and red beet extract, Muira Puama and Asian ginseng...33:00 -Ben's unfortunate incident with a digital penis pump...39:30 -After having done 3,000 vasectomies, Judson's opinion on the safety of vasectomies, particularly on testosterone production...43:45 -Whether a vasectomy is reversible...46:30 -How to stop a testosterone treatment once you've been on it...50:00 -What to do about erectile dysfunction from long periods of time in a bike seat...54:30 -How stem cell injections into the penis work...1:01:00 -And much more!

How To Biohack A Float Tank Experience [00:32:25] Shane says: Wondering if you know of anything that you can take when you go into a float tank? I have had great experiences so far but I would LOVE to go deeper! In my response, I recommend: -Qualia -CBD -Ketamine and LSD -Box breathing/meditation app -Wholetones by Michael Tyrrell -Underwater audio player Reversing The Damage of EMF [00:49:30] Sheridan (and Chris) says: I am curious of your thoughts around biohacking tools if you have worked in a high EMF exposure area? Is there something you can do, after the fact? For example, I work in a shopping centre and the whole centre's meters are right outside our window. -- Chris also asked a similar question about how to undo the damage of working at places like AT&T and Apple for his entire career. In my response, I recommend: -My interview with Dr. Mercola on how to reverse damage from EMF -Ben's "How To Biohack The Ultimate Healthy Home" book -The "EMF/Tinfoil hat" book Ben mentions -Ketone esters (Ben mentions HVMN and Ketoblitz brands) -Trusii Hydrogen Rich Water tablets and Rich Water generator -Lugol's iodine (no more than 1,100 mcg of iodine per day - the tolerable upper limit) -Thorne Resveracel -Time release melatonin -Thorne 5-Hydroxytryptophan -Doc Parsley's Sleep Remedy -Red blood cell support (I recommend this stack from Biotropic Labs) -TianChi for full spectrum antioxidant support along with large intake of wild plants/herbs/spices -Thorne curcumin -Aquatru Trace Liquid Mineral drops or Natural Vitality Trace Mineral shots -Colima Salt Training With The Maffetone Method [01:06:25] Callan says: I am a fit 27-year-old female doing HIIT training 4-5 times per week. I can run a sub-7-minute mile but I am trying to build my endurance and aerobic base. I have gotten into Triathlons and want to get good at them. I have heard about the MAF method where you spend 3-6 months building your aerobic base and never touching the anaerobic zone. Should I take 3 months off and train aerobically? Is that still a thing? Should I add strength and HIIT into that or do I need to take the time off to train aerobically? In my response, I recommend: -Beyond Training C-60 For Anti-Aging [01:13:52] Kim says: I am interested in your opinion in the atom cluster called Carbon 60. In my response, I recommend: -C60 (buckminsterfullerene) -Sexy hair -JOOVV photobiomodulation

If you've been paying attention to my anti-aging and longevity advice of late (such as this week's article on simple and natural habits for enhancing longevity), you no doubt are aware that one of the best things you can do for yourself is to find your purpose in life. If things haven't been going the way you've planned, and especially if you've felt completely stuck in life, know this: everything changes the moment you discover your life's unique purpose. Success, love, abundance, health and well-being, and vibrant energy are all by-products of leading a purpose-filled life. But maybe you don't know what your life's purpose is, or you don't believe you have one, or you thought you knew what it was and you lost it. If that's the case, then this podcast is for you. In the latest book from today's podcast guest Mastin Kipp, you're guided on a 40-day journey, inspired by Joseph Campbell's model of the hero's journey, to identify and dissolve whatever's holding you back, break free from trauma and victimhood, and transform your life. Mastin is an American entrepreneur, best-selling author, and renowned public speaker and the creator of Functional Life Coaching?. He is the author of the best- selling books Daily Love and Claim Your Power, and has been featured in outlets like Well + Good, Huffington Post, and has appeared on Fox News, ABC, CBS News, and more. During our discussion, you'll discover: -Mastin's treadmill desk setup that he used to write the entire book...8:00 -How Mastin felt on cocaine, and what happened to his brain scan afterwards...15:00 -Why Ben loves books by Richard Branson...21:30 -How Mastin burns fat and builds muscle simultaneously in the morning workout session...30:00 -The neural exercises you can do to hack your nervous system to find purpose in life...34:30 -Why you often keep exercising even if you're injured, and our inherent fear of being immobilized...37:00 -Why Mastin always leads with service, rather than viewing relationships as transactional...1:04:00 -How Mastin got onto Oprah (and the #1 thing he learned from Oprah)...1:14:00  -What Mastin has learned from Tony Robbins...1:16:30 -And much more...

Four months ago, I was at a party in Park City, Utah that happened to be chock full of chiropractic physicians. While I was leaning against the bar mixing myself a white wine kombucha spritzer, as I'm prone to do, a doctor named Steve Geanopulos approached me and introduced himself. Sensing I was a fellow physiology geek with his science-spidey sense, he proceeded to fill me in on a fascinating paper entitled "The Potential Impact of Various Physiological Mechanisms on Outcomes in TBI, mTBI, Concussion and PPCS." He then went on to explain that this paper, which we'll discuss in today's podcast along with plenty of other neural fixing and neural enhancing topics, forms the basis of the care he provides for his chronic brain based patients (not only concussion but anyone who struggles with movement, sight, focus, attention, or other brain based issues.) We also discussed the work Steve does with professional and collegiate athletes and concussion with his colleague Ben Velazquez, and the work he's done with a guy named Guy Voyer over the past 20 years with ELDOA - a form of fascial stretching that I personally incorporate in my own training and my clients' protocols. He described his approach as a "neuro-chemical, neuro-immunological, neuro-mechanical approach". So why is this guy exactly? Dr. Steven G. Geanopulos, affectionately known as 'Dr G', is a speaker, writer, and leader in the world of functional neurology / functional medicine and is quickly becoming one of America's leading experts in lifelong, optimized living. His experience and clinical approach has proven that diminished health and vitality can be reclaimed by just about any proactive person at any age. Dr G.'s principles of practice cover the 5 essential keys to resolving the underlying cause of health problems and performance concerns including; assessing the nervous system for interference, endocrine system, detoxification systems, nutrition and fitness. Dr. G has completed his postgraduate studies in the field of Functional Neurology and attained board certification through the Carrick Institute, a distinction shared by fewer than 700 people worldwide. Dr. G is a lifelong learner and has completed hundreds of hours of training in the fields of chiropractic neurology and functional medicine. The material he shares covers everything required to take control of your health, while dispelling the ever-growing number of fallacies and myths related to this subject. Dr. G's fascinating and refreshing approach to body transformation focuses immune function, brain function, nutrition, management of our personal environment, exercise and hormone balance. Dr. G currently practices virtually with clients and sees patients from all over the world with his main practice located in New York City. His practice has 3 main areas of focus: 1. Brain health 2. Metabolic health 3. Structural and functional integrity and optimization. These 3 areas of focus are intimately connected and require Dr. G's unique expertise. Eventually, I made it to New York City to meet with Steve and also meet his colleague there: Benjamin Velazquez Pagan. Ben's qualifications include: -Licensed Soma-Trainer (Performance Physical Therapy) -Certified Strength & Conditioning Coach -Member, International Sports Sciences Association -Member, National Strength & Conditioning Association -Member, American College of Sports Medicine -Co-Contributing Author, "Fascia - Clinical Applications for Health and Human Performance." As a competitive athlete, Benjamin Velazquez realizes the value and potential that comes with a scientific sports program. As a Performance therapist, his goal is to bridge the gap between cutting edge science and today's athlete. Ben's professional experience includes Managing Partner and Director of Human Performance of Sports Lab NYC LLC; President of Grey Matters Sports Group LLC. He designs programs and coaches his New York clientele that ranges from elite athlete to high profile celebrity. In addition to a B.S. degree in Aeronautical Science, Ben holds several certifications, which include NCSA Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist, Licensed Performance Soma- Therapist, ACSM Exercise Specialist, ISSA Sports performance Nutritionist, and many more. Ben's client roster includes: -22 current and Former N.H.L. Athletes, -18 current and former M.L.B. Players -5 Division 1 NCAA Soccer Players -12 Current N.F.L. Athletes. -The Women's 2006 Track Team at University of Texas. Ben has also worked with the Saskatoon Blades Hockey Team 1999-2000, the 2003 national champion New York Freedom Soccer Team as well as 5 Athletes at The Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. Ben has spent the last two years researching the use of corrective exercise in mitigating the risk factors of concussions in athletes. Along with his team at Grey Matters Sports Group, he has successfully worked with athletes from five different sports that were recovering from multiple concussions. He and his team have pioneered a five-tier method of rehabilitating the athlete that has suffered from concussive trauma. During my discussion with Ben and Steve, you'll discover: -Why concussions today are much different today than they were 30 years ago... -Why Steve describes concussions as an immune system issue... -Steve and Ben's approach for returning to play, work or school after a head injury or concussion-like syndrome... -Why Steve had me wear a giant pair of infrared goggles when he evaluated me in New York City... -What kind of bloodwork you have had done to see if you've had a concussion... -Why Ben V. feels that anybody who is dealing with a concussion or TBI should learn a form of fascial stretching called ELDOA... -And much more!
