Youth has a way of making you feel near invincible. Your body handles long nights, limited sleep, and poor diets much easier. The problem is those choices have a cumulative effect. What you eat, how often you eat also impacts the health of your brain. There is a Chinese proverb that says, “the best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, and the second best time is now.” It is easy to disregard neurodegenerative diseases as something for older people, but understanding how leaky brain and neurodegeneration begins to happen is better learned now, than waiting till later if you plan to age gracefully. Dr. Jay Lombard may be incognito but his depth of knowledge and expertise in degenerative neurological diseases is astonishing. He breaks down what misfolded proteins are, the relation of infection and immune system processes to neurodegenerative disease and reveals simple ways you can support your immune system on a cellular level. Get ready to break out the ice baths and discover a new reason to relax in the sauna.

Do you believe that starting a business with nothing is possible? The American Dream is typically defined as the idea that the opportunity of achieving your highest aspirations is possible for anyone willing to put in the work. Jay Samit, laid out his case and experiment for this very idea in his latest book, Future Proofing You. Glenn Stearns, producer and star of the Discovery show, Undercover Billionaire, put himself to the test with $100, no contacts, no help, and just 90 days to build a million dollar business because he deeply believes the American Dream is still alive and possible. Although the playing field is not equal for everyone in every opportunity, it is still possible. Glenn’s story is shocking and relatable for many because his honesty and vulnerability shows that attitude and belief are still king in how you decide to live your life and make moves.

Regardless of where you live, societies are feeling the threat against certain freedoms and are fighting back. Humans innately don’t want to be oppressed or censored by larger, more powerful and dominant groups. But exactly how do you define your freedom? Is your freedom tied to your “rights'' or is your freedom independent of that? Sebastian Junger, best selling author, Afghanistan war correspondent and more has authored a new book, Freedom, that will leave you shocked, perplexed and challenged in many ways. In this conversation, he and Tom take a deep dive into freedom, what it means for different societies, how smaller groups are able to give larger groups and armies hell, and are willing to risk their lives for their freedom. Sebastian also shares his 400 mile experience walking through America with a group of friends and reflects on different feelings of freedom. His more recent near death experience will shock you and give you yet another perspective of freedom worth fighting for

QUOTES:

“it means that you are not unfairly controlled by a greater power. That you’re self defining, within the limits, of course of the laws that bind all of us.” [1:25]

 

“That's the eternal human sort of balancing act is to defend themselves but then not wind up being oppressed by their own leaders.” [4:43]

 

“It's very clear that armed aggression is very adaptive, that it helps the aggressive group survive and thrive.” [8:49]

 

“The idea of freedom really only refers to the people within your own community.” [9:25]

 

“Going into a foreign country to defend oneself, puts the military in the whole society on more precarious moral grounds.” [12:29]

 

“first thing you need to do in order to feel safe is to be part of a group that has a kind of common agreement to defend itself against any threat” [16:17]

 

“The really interesting thing about humans is that a smaller fighter, or a smaller group, is capable of defeating a larger fighter or a larger group that size and strength are not the ultimate predictor of victory in combat.” [23:21]

 

“The small guy in the ring does not have to win, they just have to keep not losing long enough for this for the larger entity to run out of resources.” [26:12]

 

“We have an instinct for autonomy, we also have an instinct for, you know, not being uncomfortable and being safe and and having our ease” [49:30]

 

“In an affluent society, individuals need others less to survive. And so they're able to live more and more individualistic lives that are more focused on their own experience, and less focused on the experience of others.” [54:20]

 

“As wealth goes up in a society, broadly, the rates of depression and suicide tend to go up and in poorer societies despite the stresses of poverty, rates of depression and suicide tend to go down.” [54:48]

 

“Where evolution comes from, is testing new things, and evolving physically and psychologically to adapt to them.” [1:07:42]

 

“Leadership has to be completely selfless, like you need leaders who will die for you. Anything less than that is not a leader. They're an opportunist.” [1:12:59]

 

“The meaning that we give to life and the meaning that we give to death. It doesn't say anything really about the nature of existence, it says something about how we, as humans, create a place for ourselves in the world on this crazy planet we live on.” [1:28:00]

 

“Some feelings that you get in touch with, prevent you from doing something that needs to be done. Like that emotional denial is absolutely crucial when you're doing something that is scary or horrifying.” [1:34:04]

If you have followed me for any amount of time, you have likely heard me say action cures all. Since starting Healthy Theory, I have interviewed over 90 specialists and experts about everything from brain cognition, to gut microbiome, to reverse aging. Information is meant to be put into action, so today I am sharing with you what my daily routine consists of at the moment. Goals are important and should always be considered when choosing what is best for you. This is not advice for anyone, just a look at how I’ve applied the plethora of expert advice I’ve received over the past few years. This episode is Health Theory In Action with my own routine:

 

Key Points to My Routine:

1. Exercise and Meditation are a must.

2. Diet is critical for health. I keep it simple with meat, eggs, and veggies.

3. Learn what works best for your body and act in accordance.

QUOTES:

“The workout that you do, even if it's a little wonky, is better than the perfect workout that you don't do.” [8:27]

 

“Literally at a cellular level you are made of the things that you consume. So every cell in your body is from something that you ate” [14:31]

 

“I have a gut instinct, that anxiety is probably 90% your diet, and then 10%, what you're thinking about” [16:21]

So many people are easily trapped in the stories of their lives. Falling victim and feeling helpless is not about being weak or strong, but it is about self-awareness and making a mental shift to see what is possible. Stepping back and asking yourself, what is in your control and deciding how you want to respond is critical. Viktor Frankl says in his book, Man’s Search for Meaning, “Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” Danny Trejo, an actor and  Hollywood Icon, joins me today to discuss a few of the stories from his new memoir, Trejo. Hearing these stories should remind you that it never matters where you are or how you start in life, it only matters how you decide to respond. Yes it’s hard, yes all excuses and reasons you have to not try and give up are valid, but ultimately the choice is yours to make. Danny’s story is beyond inspiring when you see someone come from a mindset and situation that consumes and devours over 90% of the people engulfed in that life. Which really means, anything is possible and your potential is nearly limitless.

“having my dad as a dad, he's like, don't go after happiness, go after meaning, but then you can air into the side of do hard work forever, and then die” [1:12:03]

 

“If you live your life too much in order, then you're not going to have any new opportunity, because that's all foreign territory.” [1:17:26]

Many of us can admit to loving a good underdog story. You want to see the main character go through their perilous journey and come out on the other side victorious after the big battle or challenge that was seemingly impossible. When that story is real life, it causes you to pause and take inventory of your own story. What situation are you facing, how is your current situation in comparison to the underdog you just cheered for? Sometimes those questions can really sting, especially if you feel like or can see proof that you are not living up to your full potential. Wallo267, is an incredible entrepreneur, marketer, and self-made millionaire that joins me to discuss how his no BS mentality took him from a life of crime to a life filled with meaning, purpose, and unmistakable success. He was in and out of jail from the age of 11 and eventually served a 20 year prison sentence. What he’s accomplished in this time and came out of jail equipped and prepared to do will leave you speechless and questioning exactly how you’re using excuses and potentially clinging to a victim mentality.. From Philly to Hollywood, these are lessons on building an extraordinarily successful business from nothing.

We’ve all experienced those moments when it feels like the odds are stacked against you in a mighty way. In those moments, your willingness to survive, fight back, and come out on the other side unscathed is critical. But, when the odds are stacked against you in the form of corruption that leads to being wrongly convicted and railroaded into a life sentence in prison, it takes an immense amount of resilience and fortitude to strategically plan a way through a broken unjust system. Isaac Wright, Jr. has experienced this first hand after 7 years imprisoned and 9 additional years under investigation after passing the New Jersey State Bar exam. Isaac speaks to patience, calculated moves, and what it takes to turn anger and bitterness into usable skills that have a real impact.

QUOTES:

“Because at that point, I was going to be a slave to somebody else's strategy, somebody else's thought process, and someone else's motives” [2:30]

 

“The level of corruption that had engulfed me as a young man alone, the book was written before the indictment came down, and that was really my reality.” [5:39]

 

“My strategy shifted to making sure that when I went to prison, they wasn't going to be able to keep me. And so everything I did was not for the day, everything that I did was for years down the line.” [10:16]

 

“The more I know about them, and the less they know about me, the better off I am” [13:20]

 

“One of the things about injustice, if you fight injustice with justice, you wreak havoc upon injustice, it's like water and oil, it's never going to mix” [16:55]

 

“As a six-year-old kid, I understood the importance of fighting back no matter how much danger you're in.” [21:59]

 

“I needed to separate myself from what I was going through in order to stay focused and it took me some time, but I literally became a different person. I was representing myself as someone else.” [24:48]

 

“I always take a granular approach to the things that I'm experiencing in life.” [34:22]

 

Guest Bio:

Isaac Wright Jr. (born January 23, 1962) is an American lawyer in the state of New Jersey. He is a candidate for mayor of New York City in the 2021 New York City mayoral election. Wright was convicted in 1991 after a five-week trial by a 12-person jury of 10 charges involving the sale of cocaine and sentenced to life in prison, but his conviction was overturned in 1997 after litigation brought by him and his lawyer, on the basis that police concealed evidence.

What utility do your beliefs have in your everyday life? From the way you decide on political issues to the way you tune out dissenting views, and decide against conversations with certain people every choice is backed by some belief in what you consider to be right. Michael Shermer, who I dubbed, the King Skeptic, joins me and discusses why free speech matters most when people don't want to hear it, and the power behind social signaling that helps shed light on some of the breakdowns being seen on a global scale. Michael’s ability to think through strong opposing arguments searching for truth and charitable interpretation and tolerance for others is foundational.

 

Order Michael Shermer’s book, Giving The Devil His Due: https://amzn.to/2TWVvfq

 

QUOTES:

“much of decision making about truth is made under uncertainty.” [14:31]

 

“if you want to speak out, because you don't believe this ideology, and you see your neighbor, you know, hauled off and you never see him again, it's like, ‘I'm keeping my mouth shut.’” [33:02]

 

“if the only answer could be I'm 100% behind it. Or else, I'm not gonna say anything. Well, that's not good for society.”

 

“so social media is basically taking this natural human propensity to talk about other people. And marrying it to the negativity bias where we notice negative things more than positive things.” [50:26]

 

“losses hurt twice as much as gains feel good.” [50:46]

 

“try to separate what I want to be true from what is actually true.” [1:04:01]

 

“ it's good to remember on commercial television, there's commercials. And so the content is basically whatever it takes to get people to get from one commercial to the next with that clicking away.” [1:07:25]

 

“if you're going to write a law, you should write it in a way that you don't know which group you're going to be in,” [1:20:03]

 

“put yourself in the position of you're the lone voice. And do you or do you not want to be heard? Of course, people want to be heard. So free speech is for those with whom we disagree.” [1:34:29]

QUOTES:

“we are out of touch and out of sync with our bodies with how our biology influences us, and because of that, we misunderstand ourselves” [4:49]

 

“our minds have deluded us to believe we are so superior, that we have decimated everything around us now, so we'll be the only one standing and eventually we will corrupt ourselves, we are on that path of self destruction” [6:07]

 

“We've entered a great narcissism as a species, as a humanity, that we are just limitless. There's no stop button.” [11:32]

 

“It's a constant craving, constant insecurity. The fact that we can, doesn't mean we necessarily should.” [16:13]

 

“when we women succumb to cultural standards based on what culture imposes on us, and we defy our own natural bodies, and we go and mutate our own natural bodies to become that cultural standard, now, we are falling into the patriarchy, and actually genuflecting, actually serving the patriarchy by falling prey to it.” [20:06]

 

“We are constantly seeking to make everything fit this paradigm of beautiful. And actually that makes us more insecure.” [22:30]

 

“At the end of the day, self acceptance is your greatest sword. That is what is going to make you the most desirable to yourself and to others. Do not fall for standards of beauty.” [24:00]

 

“The fact that we have to fight it says that there's something to fight, and there's a system in place that we constantly have to buffer ourselves against “ [34:47]

 

“It is our inner that is represented on the outside on a global scale” [40:26]

 

“The scourge of humanity and mental illness is our deep void, our insecurity which is causing us to want to go to Mars and colonize it and go to every corner of the earth and dominate, similarly with our partners. Dominate their every part, every thought, every desire, it comes because we are not whole from within.” [53:40]

The chaos that can get unleashed on your body from your diet is so important to understand. Having low energy and brain fog is not only frustrating but it feels debilitating as well. I've had my own recent experience with low energy that had me questioning if I had lost my drive. Starting with my diet and realizing pecans were causing my energy to feel so low was shocking for me. Dr. Steven Gundry's latest book, The Energy Paradox, reveals what's taking place on a cellular level that was affecting the body's energy. He joins me to unpack how significant gut health is to your immune system and brain. We get into the chaos leaky gut causes and how you can make better choices to restore your energy. Even if you have a healthy diet, Dr. Gundry, a cardiothoracic surgeon, will surprise you.

 

Order Dr. Gundry’s new book, The Energy Paradox: https://www.amazon.com/dp/0063005735?tag=imprintweb-20

 

QUOTES:

“believe it or not in the American diet 24 hours a day, we're causing leaky gut we're assaulting our immune system, [...] just from fat, we are just a giant ball of inflammation.” [18:54]

 

“So if we look at energy production, as literally cars moving down through a freeway, it's no wonder that even though we're eating huge amounts of calories, we have no energy because we literally log jam the mitochondria.” [38:29]

 

“You've got to eat for your gut microbiome first, and you have to choose foods that they want to eat. And if you do that, they will take care of you.” [40:09]

 

“We die, we get diseases, by breaks in the wall of our gut that start this process” [41:05]

 

“If you begin to gradually restrict the time you eat down to about six to eight hours a day, you will develop much better functioning mitochondria, you'll actually have a better gut wall because you're not working on digestion. 24 hours a day. And you're gonna protect your brain.” [41:57]

 

Guest Bio: Dr. Steven Gundry is an American doctor and author. He is a former cardiac surgeon and currently runs his own clinic, investigating the impact of diet on health. Gundry conducted cardiac surgery research in the 1990s and was a pioneer in infant heart transplant surgery, and is a New York Times best-selling author of The Plant Paradox: The Hidden Dangers in "Healthy" Foods That Cause Disease and Weight Gain. He is best known for his disputed claims that lectins, a type of plant protein found in numerous foods, cause inflammation resulting in many modern diseases.

Scientific break-throughs are happening all around you. As technology advances, biologists such as the Chief Science Officer of the SENS Research Foundation, Aubrey de Grey, is leading the way to pioneering tech that will allow you to choose how long you want to live. For years scientists have been trying to find a way to slow down the aging process, but Aubrey introduces the idea of repairing the damage that aging does on the body to theoretically restore the body’s biological age to maybe 30 years younger. If you are familiar with the obsession I’ve had with living forever, you already know how much this excites me.

 

SHOW NOTES:

Quality of Life | Aubrey on why a long life depends on the quality and being invested in choice [0:58]

Reverse Aging | Why damage repair could be easier than slowing aging & the push back met [4:40]

Indefinite Life | Aubrey on why the result of expected life for reversed aging could be indefinite [8:08]

Structure Repair | Landing on the idea of repairing structure to restore cellular level function [9:32]

Pushback | Aubrey on pushback among scientists about reverse aging in biology [11:17]

Body Damage | Aubrey on self-inflicted damage being reversed to same level 30 years prior [14:13]

Longevity Escape Velocity | Aubrey on his theory how to reverse biological age 30 years [16:26]

Types of Damage | 7 categories of damage that correspond to therapeutic methods of repair [21:18]

Stem Cell Therapy | Aubrey explains how stem cells could treat loss of cell problems [22:17]

Cancer Treatments | Aubrey gives category of damage due to too many cells [23:26]

Senescent Cells | Aubrey explains how these cells can promote cancer [26:53]

Mitochondrial Mutations | Aubrey explains problems at the molecular level inside cells [28:53]

Cellular Waste | Aubrey breaks down how cellular waste over years impacts old age [33:35]

Macular Degeneration | Aubrey explains specific enzymes that could prevent blindness  [35:24]

Excretion | Aubrey explains diseases that could be resolved by breaking down waste [37:50]

Alzheimer’s | Breaking down amyloid as extracellular waste and modest benefit [39:22]

Advancing Therapies | Aubrey gives sobering guess how close effective therapies are [44:07]

 

 

QUOTES:

“I want to make sure that my choice about how long to live, and, of course, how high quality that life will be, is not progressively taken away from me by aging.” [2:24]

 

“Old age is something that evolution doesn't care about at all. Evolution only cares about the propagation of genetic information.” [34:41]

 

“you've got to fix them all. You haven't got to fix any of them perfectly. But you've got to fix them all pretty well.” [43:28]

 

“what excites me is typically the breakthroughs that would take me half an hour background to describe why it's even important.” [46:16]

It's not going to be easy, but good things are hard to do and hard things are good to do.” [1:19:26]

“it's the quality of the time that you live. That's actually more important than the duration” [1:23:29]

 

“You can't just say there are a lot of stars out there, and surely they're teaming with life. There are a lot of factors that lead to life, and then intelligence and mechanical ability at our level.

QUOTES:

“when you start asking someone to change habits, you are probably asking them to do the most difficult thing they can do. It's just so much simpler to take a pill. And consequences be damned” [15:31]

 

“... it might be empowering, that rather than hopelessly taking medications every day, knowing that the only the only future is increasing the dose of those medications. Let's actually address the true origins of the problem, which [...] is often going to be insulin resistance.” [18:17]

 

“insulin’s telling the body how much fat to store, the sex hormones are just telling the body where to store it, and how” [28:08]

 

“the muscle is so hungry during exercise, that it just basically tells insulin look when I'm at rest, you're the boss, but when I'm exercising, I'm the boss. I'm going to get what I need, and so it basically pushes insulin to the side.” [39:01]

 

“if you try to compare diet to exercise, diet will beat the hell out of exercise, as a variable for insulin resistance.” [42:00]

 

“it [vegan diet] is a privilege of the elite. You have to be educated enough to know what your deficiencies are, and you have to be wealthy enough to afford the supplements” [44:47]

To know where you are going, they say you should know where you’ve been. Science fiction has been well documented for its often accurate predictions and a loved being a social curiosity for many. In this episode, Tom is joined by physicist and bestselling science fiction author, David Brin. David exposes how science fiction can be more accurately described as “speculative history” than anything else. Their conversation explores society through history from the Periclean times all the way through modern U.S. politics and what a transparent society top-down, and bottom-up would imply and necessitate.

Which diet are you following? Are you doing the carnivore diet? Vegan? Keto? The choices and variations of every diet plan available is nearly endless. At the heart of the matter, diet consciousness is a question of overall health and better managing and preventing diseases and conditions that hinder your performance and destroy your ability to live a happy and healthy life. In this episode, nephrologist and intermittent fasting expert, Dr. Jason Fung, exposes the overarching importance of understanding your body’s hormonal response to insulin activated by what you eat and the frequency with which you eat. He also breaks down the three major paradigms for cancer, and ranks the danger of a poor diet as high as cigarette smoke in terms of high risk contributors of cancer. Dr. Fung is also the author of the #1 best seller, The Obesity Code.
