IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™… Dan Buettner joins the show to talk about the origins and food foundations of Blue Zones. He discusses how they were discovered, what makes them different, and what’s changed for people living there over the past few decades. And the big question—is it still possible to live to 100?Dan, an explorer, National Geographic Fellow, award-winning journalist and producer, and photographer, has studied and written extensively about the five places in the world—dubbed Blue Zones—where people live the longest, healthiest, and often happiest lives. He’s partnered with epidemiologists, anthropologists, medical researchers, demographers, and statisticians to take a data-based approach to everything from genetics to census data.Combining this intensive research with cultural immersion, Dan’s brought out aspects of Blue Zones lifestyles—like food and social connection—that form a foundation for human life quality and longevity. He’s the bestselling author of a series of Blue Zone books.In Dan’s latest Blue Zones adventure, he took a road trip across the United States to explore food and communities. He found that pockets of Blue Zones do exist throughout the U.S. He talked to heritage cooks passing on recipes to younger generations. He uncovered the traditional roots of plant-forward cuisine in the United States and presents both traditional and revolutionary ideas in vegetarian food in his newest book, “The Blue Zones American Kitchen: 100 Recipes to Live to 100.” Stunning photography and recipes show the vitality of both food and people from five distinct areas: Indigenous, Native & Early American, African American, Latin American, Asian American and Regional and Contemporary American.Dan also dug deep into the country’s food history and brings to light the dramatic changes in food processing, regulation, government intervention, and leadership choices that have influenced food supply. He combed through 60 oral histories, scientific reports and academic papers to reconstruct traditional American diets. In “The Blue Zones American Kitchen,” you’ll find out why the 1970s were the worst decade for America’s food environment. WE APPRECIATE OUR PARTNERS.

Timeline Nutrition sponsored this podcast.IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™… immunologist Anurag Singh, M.D., Ph.D., MBA, Chief Medical Officer at Amazentis, joins the show to talk about urolithin A’s connection between inflammation, aging and your mitochondria. Urolithin A activates mitophagy and renews your mitochondria.  “It takes all the cellular garbage that has been accumulating over the aging process,” Dr. Singh explains. “It revs it up, so it recharges. And so now, you're cleaning your metabolic waste products much more efficiently and they become the building blocks. This is mitochondrial biogenesis, and that means newer, healthy mitochondria coming in.”This new conversation takes an exciting turn into immunity and your immune system’s two lines of defense: innate and adaptive. You’ll learn:how inflammation plus aging (AKA inflammaging) contributes to a weakened immune system and a growing incidence of cancer as you age;how inflammaging and cancer are connected to mitochondrial dysfunction specifically during the aging process; andhow to approach your immune health differently with this new knowledge.A new study recently published in Immunity looks at how immune cells fight cancer better with a focus on immune modulation, immune cell exhaustion and immune responses. “A lot of urolithin A is anti-inflammatory, but a lot of it is immune modulation," Dr. Singh says. "So, it takes a rewiring of the immune system and makes it more conducive to stopping harmful immune responses.”Watch this episode on YouTube!SPECIAL OFFER FOR THE HUMAN UPGRADE LISTENERS: To learn more about the benefits of urolithin A, go to https://www.timelinenutrition.com and use code UPGRADE10 to get 10% off the plan of your choice. WE APPRECIATE OUR PARTNERS.

IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™… Robynne Chutkan, M.D., joins the show to talk about a topic that’s foundational to biohacking—resilience. More specifically, resilience that starts in the gut. You’ll learn:how your microbiome continually evolves and why that matters to the state of your gut and body functions.how to strengthen the antiviral defenses located in your gut.why your body’s own ability “to resist, heal, and recover from viruses is vastly superior” to pharmaceuticals.what to do before taking antibiotics to protect your gut, as well as what you can do to rehab your microbiome after antibiotic use.“Being on the winning team when battling viruses isn’t because of good luck, or coincidence, or variations in viral virulence,” Dr. Chutkan explains in her newest book, “The Anti-Viral Gut: Tackling Pathogens from the Inside Out.” "It’s due to differences in us, the hosts, and our defenses, and those differences are what determine your outcome. Put another way: it’s less about the potency of the pathogen and more about the health of the host.”Dr. Chutkan is a Yale- and Columbia-educated integrative gastroenterologist who’s been advancing knowledge and education about gut health for decades. Nearly 20 years ago she founded the Digestive Center for Wellness to help people get to the root issue of their digestive issues and improve their gut health. Watch this episode on YouTube!WE APPRECIATE OUR PARTNERS.

Analemma sponsored this episode.IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™… you’re listening to a new Upgrade Spotlight series. Once a month, these shorter episodes feature guests who get right into useful information in a Q&A style. You’ll find out how to improve your energy and upgrade your performance. You’ll also get the latest knowledge about powerful tools and technologies that allow you to change your biology and the environment around you. Introducing Analemma! During this Upgrade Spotlight with Mario Brainovic, CEO of Analemma, you’re going to find out about a tool that transforms regular water into a supercharged, full-spectrum, coherent state. The kind of water you drink absolutely influences the quality of your life. You’ll learn the science behind Analemma and what it can do for your health and energy.Why water? You think you know the basics: stay hydrated daily, avoid plastic bottles and use a filtration system at home. Well, Analemma says water goes way beyond the basics—all the way down to your cellular level. You’re 70% water in body mass, but 99% water on a molecular level. You’re basically very clever water. The Analemma device—similar in looks and function to a magic wand—radically changes the state of drinking water. Environmental forces cause H2O molecules in drinking water to behave chaotically. At an atomic level, water molecules crash into each other constantly. Your body’s susceptible to that influence.“We found a way to bring order to this chaos,” Mario says. “When you swirl an Analemma through the water, what happens is that those same H2O molecules start forming a liquid crystalline structure. They start behaving harmonically. They, colloquially speaking, join hands.”Analemma water is not exclusion zone water. It's something different. “It also is structured water, but we came to it in a very different way,” Mario says. “The key element to it is its stability.”This conversation gets right into the science of Analemma and several studies. You’ll find out how:a new study is measuring the rise in ATP levels (in mitochondrial energy) when people drink this water.this water affects the human microbiome this water reduces your biological age by one to 12 years by regenerating your cellular system, according to GlycanAge.you get an instant balancing effect between the left and the right brain hemispherehow a cooling affect happens on your brainwaves almost instantly when drinking this waterthis water restores the biodiversity of infertile soilSPECIAL OFFER FOR THE HUMAN UPGRADE LISTENERS: Go to https://analemma-water.com and use code dave10 to save 10%.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™… You’ll learn about the ways using a sauna can charge your energy, help you heal physical and mental health conditions—and science that backs that up. Sunlighten sponsored this episode.Connie Zack joins the show to talk about the far-reaching benefits of sauna use and what’s new in the field of infrared light. For more than 22 years, Connie and her husband, Aaron, have introduced infrared light therapy to 13 countries through Sunlighten. They’re leading innovations in infrared light therapy and infrared sauna manufacturing. This conversation covers a range of good things you’ll experience from using a sauna:how infrared light affects the body and triggers a biochemical cascade of benefits;how near infrared penetrates the body to interact with mitochondria;why the real magic of infrared combines both light and heat;what evidence connects infrared and detoxification—and why sweating wins;why you sleep better—without feeling exhausted—when you do a sauna session before bed;how infrared shows promising relief for those who experience depression; and practical ways to incorporate sauna into your own stack for better sleep and higher performance.Big takeaways for you:Sauna for Detox: Results from a blood-urine-sweat study support infrared for detoxification, and it’s more than just thermoregulation as traditional medicine often argues.Sauna for Depression: Chronic inflammation is associated with depression and may be a protective, inflammatory response involving thermoregulatory pathways, the immune system, serotonin system, heat shock proteins and more. Studies show that raising core body temperature can improve major symptoms of depression. Connie’s been on the show before, so check out Saunas Use Infrared to Power Detox, Immunity & Renewal – #823 to find out how infrared sauna helps you with immunity and recovery.SPECIAL OFFER FOR THE HUMAN UPGRADE LISTENERS: Go to https://www.sunlighten.com/dave to save up to $600 on your sauna purchase.WE APPRECIATE OUR PARTNERS.

IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™… you’ll learn how a yoga practice can be a vehicle for inner transformation. This conversation looks past the popularity of yoga as a fitness trend and into its deeper potential for human development. You’ll also learn how yoga can be a way for you to explore your whole being—from physicality to emotions to thinking.“A yoga practice often can be the missing ingredient for people,” says renowned yoga master Baron Baptiste. “Often I hear, ‘I added yoga practice to my routine and regimen, and it just shifted everything for me.’ It's a very different way of working your body, mind and breath integration.”Baron devotes his own life to the study and practices of human development. For more than 30 years, he’s facilitated education through yoga principles and teachings.His power vinyasa yoga— The Baptiste Methodology—includes the physical (asana), meditation (dhyana) and inquiry (niyama). “Iyengar was one of my primary teachers,” Baron says. “One thing I borrowed from him is the rigor to a body alignment—a True North Alignment.”Baptiste Yoga is a systematic approach made up of 53 poses, or asanas, that are linked together by connective momentum and consist of five classical pillars: Drishti (gaze), ujjayi (breath), bandhas (foundation), tapas (heat) and vinyasa (flow).More about Baron Baptiste: Baron began to seriously study yoga at age 12. As the son of two of America's yoga pioneers, he’s got a great life story that highlights the transformative power of yoga. He trained extensively in all the major traditions before beginning to teach yoga in Los Angeles in the late 80s and creating Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga in the mid-90s. He’s worked with celebrities, Olympians and professional athletes. He founded the Baptiste Power Yoga Institute that reaches people around the world.

IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™… biohacking goes in a different direction. This frank discussion looks at the dying process and how people and those close to them (family and friends) experience death. You’ll learn about the existence of angels and the power of psychic abilities—even if you may be a skeptic. The conversation also explains what a “medical intuitive” does and how a medical intuitive facilitates energetic healings.Cool show today!

This means she can sense medical conditions and illnesses in people—like a human MRI machine. Then she facilitates energetic healings and says she does a lot of work with stem cell energy.Julie scans animals, accesses people’s past lives and senses how close to death someone is. She communicates with spirits both alive and dead. Even cooler—Julie’s psychic and medical intuitive skills are learned and she teaches those skills to others.Julie talks about the “glorious” side of dying, a process that she says involves angels, multitudes of deceased family and friends, the spirits of deceased pets, and countless serendipitous (and miraculous) moments that are all part of a prescribed series of events. She calls this the “12 Phases of Transition™” and broadly outlines this in today’s episode.SPECIAL OFFERS FOR THE HUMAN UPGRADE LISTENERS: Julie’s giving a digital or audio copy of her books to every listener who wants one. Go to https://askjulieryan.com/ask-julie/.

IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™… menopause and the perimenopausal years leading up to it take the spotlight as a topic frequently requested by listeners. Great timing! It’s World Menopause Awareness Day Oct. 18 and World Menopause Awareness Month in October.More than 1 million women in the United States experience menopause each year. Still, little is known, researched or taught in medical schools about the health effects of this natural biological occurrence.Guys who love the women in their lives and younger women will get a lot of benefit out of the show, too, and come away armed with information. Note that some women go through menopause at ages earlier than 40 for various medical reasons and will want to keep listening.“I want people to stop being afraid to say menopause,” says Dr. Suzanne Gilberg-Lenz. “I think there's a lot to be said for just saying the word out loud. If we can deweaponize the term and just be talking about it like we would any other life phase, then we can be there for each other and we can also learn from each other.”Dr. Suzanne, an OBGYN board certified in integrative and holistic medicine, brings her expertise to the show to tackle this complex topic. Her “endless curiosity about the human experience” propelled her to uncover ways to ease women through menopause stages with effective tools. She looks at the science and also brings in holistic elements, including Ayurveda.  For more than two decades, she’s led women through life transitions. Her new book “Menopause Bootcamp: Optimize Your Health, Empower Your Self and Flourish as You Age” offers practical steps and solutions that can help women navigate the many menopausal changes they may experience. Some of what you’ll learn in this extensive conversation:Ways to de-pathologize menopause—which contributes to healing ageism.What’s actually going on with your hormones during the transition to menopause and beyond.Why hormone testing isn’t all that useful.Why Menopausal Hormone Therapy (MHT and what used to be called hormone replacement therapy, or HRT)—continues to be misunderstood and controversial.How to craft specific questions to better advocate for yourself with doctors.How to recognize symptoms that can range from moderate to severe to even debilitating.How to manage symptoms that disrupt the activities of daily living and long-term health.How physical changes can drive mental health issues during this time of your life.How to take control of your symptoms and find real solutions.Dr. Suzanne’s “Menopause Bootcamp” touches on prejudice in medicine and how to break free from the societal bullshit surrounding menopause so you can get appropriate help and treatments.Calm Your Nervous System with a Weighted Blanket:: https://balooliving.com/dave, use code DAVE for a special discountIsometrics for Cardiovascular Health: https://www.zona.com, use code DAVE2022 to get $150 off the Zona PlusBrain Training with Sound & Vibration:  www.braintap.com/dave to get 30% offSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

It’s also a natural alternative to recreational alcohol and drug use. “It's like a calm, enhanced state of natural sobriety,” Cameron says.If you struggle with social anxiety, kava’s roots in community and social connection can improve your relationships, too.Today’s conversation further expands the kava discussion.“Kava is a stress-relieving nootropic,” Cameron says. “It's a natural elixir that's prepared from the roots of a plant that grows in the South Pacific. Indigenous people have used it for thousands of years and prepared this food-grade drink kind of like coffee. On the stress-relieving side, on the nootropic side, they've prepared it and used it in almost every context imaginable, weddings, funerals, spiritual ceremonies, social gatherings. It helps to open up the opportunity for human connection, but it also helps to get people focused yet relaxed and calm and in a very safe space neurologically.”Kava studies show promise for people who may be experiencing mental health issues.

IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™… you’ll learn how botanical remedies treat infectious and inflammatory diseases. You’ll get a fascinating look at how plants and microbes interact and how antibiotic resistance evolves. And you’ll meet a leader in the field of medical botany who travels to remote locations and communities around the globe seeking out modern medicines from plants. Medicinal plants make up the primary form of medicine for 70–95 percent of people living in most developing countries. At least 4 billion people are dependent on plants for medicine.Ethnobotanist Cassandra Quave, Ph.D., is an herbarium curator and associate professor of dermatology and human health at Emory University. (She’s also a writer, speaker and podcast creator/host.) She teaches courses on medicinal plants, food, and health and her Quave Research Group leads anti-infective drug discovery research initiatives. Dr. Quave’s also the co-founder and CEO/CSO of PhytoTEK LLC. This drug-discovery company works to develop solutions from botanicals. In particular, they look at treatments of antibiotic-resistant infections like MRSA.Her battle with MRSA is personal. She was born with congenital skeletal deformities and had her leg amputated at age 3. She nearly died from a staph infection that infection required more amputation. Her early life and disability experiences shaped her life’s work with medicinal plants.She chronicles her extraordinary life, field work and scientific discovery in her book, “The Plant Hunter: A Scientist’s Quest for Nature’s Next Medicines.” Plants are incredibly complex, and science has barely scratched the surface, Cassandra says. “Some of our best drugs for infection, cancer and pain were originally found in plants,” she says in her book. “Even though they may be produced in a factory setting now, the original chemical blueprints came from plants.”Cassandra studied pre-med in college with a double major in biology and anthropology. She couldn’t find a connection between the two fields until she journeyed to the Amazon where she studied with a local shaman/healer who relied on plants as medicine. She realized instead of going into the practice of medicine, her true path was the discovery of new medicines from nature.WE APPRECIATE OUR PARTNERS.

If you are looking to burn calories then less time equals less calories. So if that's your goal then this wouldn't be beneficial, correct?

Hi Dave, You mentioned in this podcast that you do NOT recommend psyllium as prebiotic fiber - at the same time on other podcasts you're promoting uprisingfood.com which has psyllium as one of their main ingredients. I'm a bit confused. Could you please help me to clarify this? Should I avoid uprisingfood.com products as they have psyllium in it? Thx.

I'm just wondering: if the infrared sauna heats the person up from the inside: 1. Then Why does a "cabin" needed to be built around it, why cannot it be just a wall panel, like the JOOVV 3.0 Red Light Therapy devices? 2. And if the "cabin" is indeed needless for the infrared Sauna, then why JOOVV or SUNLIGHTEN - or any other similar company don't build a device /wall panel which offers 2 in 1: both Red Light Therapy AND infrared sauna in one single device / single session? Would this be too difficult/expensive to build? Or would there be health risks to have infrared sauna and red light therapy session together, at the same time?

re: low T as a function of training intensity and recovery Highly recommend mark sisson's book primal endurance. Brad Kearns case presented in that book is right in line with this guy's experience.

what you said about the therapy is so wrong and proves you are an not really a sufferer like you say. I followed you for years...years... not now. you have no idea what me and others have been through. You were fat and picked on, but what about a full trauma childhood, leaving you really mentally crippled. I liked you but now not so sure. you think anyone that had a awful upbringing or horrible experience can do it themselves. slight insult.

what you just said about the therapy is so wrong and proves you are an idiot. I followed you for yers...years... I am out. you have no idea what me and others have been through. wow. you are not in touch. thank you for showing me what type of person you are. I liked you but now no. you think anyone that had a awful upbringing or horrible experience can eR a carrot or spend your kind of money sitting in a tube of water and they get better. shame on you. someone last week said terrible things about you but I defended you but now what you Saud in the episode is an total insult.

really enjoyed this one. it continues to amaze me how otherwise intelligent well-informed people like the guest can remain so ignorant about this virus and the vaccine. I.e I e. overestimating the risk and uninformed about how useless and dangerous the vax has proven to be. not to mention completely uninformed about a middle or alternate path to addressing the public health issue. heaven forbid public health officials should encourage testing for vitamin d, inflammation and blood sugar regulation. or that they would advocate supplementation and holistic approaches to preparing oneself to win against the virus. heaven forbid they should advocate prophylactic treatment for those at high risk of exposure or infection. no way should this intelligent individual advocate for prophylactic use of proven effective early treatments

Great content but these two things will have me thinking twice about listening to another podcast:. Very disruptive noise of someone opening package, rummaging through contents, taping back up, crying paper, etcetera! Multi-tasking during a podcast is just rude!
