thank you! this has been a real eye opener and very helpful that I felt confident enough to know what I have to do to work on myself more and what I need to do in order to attract the right person in my life. A great way to use self reflection and journal how you feel and know what relationship you need to have with yourself because it's important as when being with another person as being happy yourself is vital too. :)

Hey Max! I love your work and have been greatly enjoying your chat with Marisa! Unfortunately the podcast keeps stopping a bit past 28 minutes. Here's the message I'm getting for the last few days: "An unknown error occurred, please try again later."

As an Lactation consultant listening to these manufacturers talk about infant nutrition, this episode has many red flags. Their baby drank liver n fat smoothies "with her breast milk" sounds revolting and the AAP recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months. But that's their choice of course but they have this platform and it can mislead parents. Pushing animal fats with the high saturated fat content is misleading also. I do like they have avocado and olive oil in their products. Max's comment about "extreme diets for babies like a vegetarian diet" totally disregards Adventists who are vegetarians and are Some of the longest living people on earth. This is ultimately processed food. I recommend Baby led Weaning. A wonderful book on feeding infants whole food. Very simple and healthy.

Is Ben Greenfield running while doing this interview? Exertion was evident in his voice throughout most of the podcast... his voice under stress is very distracting.

Serotonin is one the worst things to boost, it's neurotransmitter of lethargy and hibernation.

A fellow Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner got me listening to you and I love, love, love your podcast. I was extremely hurt you and Ben put down what we do. Yes, it sounds weird, but so do a lot of ideas the guest you have on do. Research Terence Bennet Reflex points, Riddles Reflex points, Chapman reflex points and lingual neuro testing. it is amazing how using these points in a functional evaluation and by placing a food or toxin on ur tongue for 15 seconds will tell u what your body does or doesn't need. I eat very clean but no matter how hard I try i can't loss 40 extra pounds. most of my points had no reaction until it came to the thymus and i couldn't bend over and touch my toes, I was about 6 inches off the floor and this is not a point to push on depending on pressure placed on it. after tasting a supplement to support these issues, in 15 sec I could touch the floor and 30 minutes after swallowing these supplements to support thymus and histamine I could but my hands flat on the floor. since then I have been working with foods to support these lymph system point. I'm losing inches after 5 years of struggle.. my pain went from a 9 to a 2 on these points. I was blown away and now I am helping others "listen" to their bodies needs thus its likes and dislikes. I'm so glad I joined the NTA and this learning style. no biohacking here, just real food choices. u can LNT with pineapple, salmon, or salt as u body's needs change so can ur reflexes. I not a writer but I'm working on clearer writing skills. I've been a RN for 24 years and into nutrition for about 16, after my peers could not help me, I turned to nutrition and got my life back. thanks for all u do. I think this is something u would find fascinating. There are a lot of healing modalities that have not been heavily researched and this is one of those. in health Heather Carlile, RN, FNTP
