221: Beyond Concussion, Mental Game, No Sugar, and Vision


alright doc live on video standby for
audio all right good day and good evening
ladies and gentlemen welcome back to another live the fuel podcast show so
today we’ve got a new guest co-host for you this gentleman’s got a bit just a
little bit of an athletic background so we’re not gonna have a problem today
talking about the whole healthy lifestyle thing I’m actually excited by
that but he dabbles in the online business space as well
so quick little skinny on him a big Venderbilt guy okay well obviously I’m a Penn
Stater but clearly this guy’s quite passionate about his Vanderbilt when you
watch the YouTube video you’ll know what I’m talking about and but so this guy’s
been a defensive end he’s been in the and again for you listening this is the
football fans okay this guy’s play with the Houston Oilers he’s even gone over
to a Europe and I play with the Scottish Claymores he’s been with the Montreal
Alouettes I believe I said the right I’m not French San Francisco demons and the
XFL oh the guy is also though a doctor he actually earned his doctor of Chiropractic from Los Angeles Chiropractic College and I’m a big fan of Chiro I’m
very big into the the natural wellness factors anti MD when I possibly can but
he’s also here’s a fun thing certified as a golf injury specialist and also in
advanced sports nutrition specialist certified in concussion assessment as a
11 year ski race coach for USSA I get it but you know what this guy’s got a
huge bio but let’s bring him on so you get to learn more about him live Dr.
John DeWitt welcome to the show thanks it’s awesome to be here I’m just
excited to be able to just kind of share whatever I can share and maybe pick your
brain on some stuff see I’ve already seen a couple books behind you there I
want to ask you about so the fire away you I’ve got a few yeah and that’s
that’s the physical library my audible digital library yeah Amazon loves me so
there you go and that what’s really cool is I actually just to jump in I learn
how you can submit files what website you go to to get your own audible books
on there which is kind of cool but the only downside is is that you
don’t get to tell them how much to charge for it because it’s all based on
how long it is so that’s why you get all these audible books that are like 13
hours long because they a bunch of Hawking so that you’d have to
pay more for it yeah I’m starting to study that now because I’m actually see
again ladies and gentlemen Jim was also a multi-author actually since we’re
going ahead and talking about it I’m gonna pop into a quick screen share to
shout out so it’s dr. John DeWitt DWI double t.com he’s been a multi author
people okay so he’s been around a little bit here he’s awesome he’s got some
books he’s been a football player I mean you’re a doctor I mean what else do you
do I mean should we add anything else on the list I’m a professional crochet it’s
probably very zen forever does so from head games for concussions and CTE to
goals and perfect action can change your life
love that one by the way and arthritis relieves the future is now so I love how
you’ve actually kind of balanced the the fitness with the health component and
then like goals for example that just applies everywhere I don’t care if
you’re a business person or a health and fitness nut the imperfect action I love
talking about that so yeah actually why don’t we dig into that did you like that
book the most I mean which one’s your favorite actually was the easiest book
for me to write because when I went to Vanderbilt I actually got in demand real
based on my academic stuff okay and walked onto the football team and this
is after this is back in VHS days sorry I’m old it’s okay I’m 41 as of last
month so oh my god I know I mean you are younger than you because you look pretty
good oh you are almost 7 years younger than me okay all right but we are in the
same decade so that all counts it’s all good but what’s funny is that so I
submitted my VHS tape because my senior year in high school I even have my
little ring here we’ve won the state championship my senior year is a huge
score in game seven to six yeah and what was your high school
shout-out Fort Smith South Side in Arkansas okay in fact guys have a big
belt of football passion right there in that eights
it’s it’s impressive there’s not a whole lot else to do so it’s either go out and
shoot something or go fishing or play football so that’s pretty much it but um
so anyway we won the state championship game that was happen to be the best game
that I’d ever played and but I didn’t really I was kind of as ones late
bloomer so to speak I was like six four weighed about 190 pounds playing
defensive end which was scary I’m literally at that exact dimensions right
now oh there you go fighting my way back to 195 that’s my
sweet spot but they’ve been doing a lot of endurance training this summer so football but so I sent my tape in the
highlight of the state championship game basically to the personnel guy or
whatever you call him at Vanderbilt my dad and I took my visit to Vanderbilt
because one of my best friend’s sister’s was an all-star stud all-american
basketball and volleyball player she’s 64 as well and I’m always lived in this
guy’s office and he tells he tells me you know I’m gonna show you some film of
some of the guys that play in the SEC it was a yeah it was the SEC still Becca
what what these guys are like and and I’m watching I’m kind of like okay I
just am I gonna get a scholarship or not and he said basically you’re you’re too
small and too slow and playing in the SEC and I was like okay and we want and
I said I’m on your six for ya but I only weighed 190 pounds okay all right I mean
in the SEC they have six six six seven offensive lineman that way like 3:30
anton davis if university tennessee it’s a whole nother story anyway Wow
so walk out of the office and I’m just like I just got kills because he does
not even realize what he’s done by doubting me like that and my dad is like
trying to comfort me saying oh don’t worry don’t let it get you down and I’m
like are you kidding me he don’t you know what he just did there’s no way I’m
not getting scholarship now and I mean every single minute of the day I mean I
get chills now so thinking about it anything I could do to get that
scholarship whether it was visualizing with whether it was conditioning like
crazy man lifting weights like crazy I wouldn’t ring any soda no sugar my
first year in college I didn’t drink any alcohol at all which was shocking to
most and that’s the sad part is that is a struggle for a lot of college athletes
is keeping that clean man and saying yeah
yeah it was and I would read my Bible I’d read a chapter out of the Bible
every night and just really tried to stay focus I had to admit that my
academics that first year kind of struggled because of that because I was
so focused on the football thing and that’s not that I made up for it later
but after my first semester I mean I’d go out to practice early and as a
walk-on you’re basically just a practice dummy and they’re knocking you around
and every now and then you get like that they’ll have a scrimmage where you can
go out and show like you’re in for like one series and I’m ever there was a guy
named Greg what was correct saying real tall guy he was like six nine offensive
lineman and so I beat him on this pass rush because I was running for my life
because I had to be quick if they got a hand on me I was done and I beat him on
a pass rush and the head coach was watching Brown at the time he got so
upset that he’s a hold on I just wanted to it and Greg to go and we did I think
we ran like three or four one-on-ones basically just me against him and I beat
him every single time oh you are do I know were you more agile because of your
weight to mention yeah yeah I mean I was jumping all over the place it was crazy
basically he finally stopped and shook his head and he was like well Greg I
guess that’s the best you can do laughing and after every practice I
would sit after and wait for the coaches to walk off the field and I would ask
him if I had a scholarship yet just everything I could do just to bug him
and bug him and bug him and then finally in November at the end of the season you
do the postseason meeting with the coach and as soon as I walked in he was like
all right you know as far as we’re concerned you’re on full scholarship
you’re awesome and and I had it like owned it so much it was a goal that I
wanted so much a noose just deep down that it was going to happen then when it
did happen I was just kind of like okay it’s like he finally caught up to what I
knew was gonna happen and people were kind of like aren’t you happy and I’m
like well yeah but I had owned it so much that I just was waiting for the
rest of the world to catch up and it’s the mindset game right yeah anyway 20
weeks I had him the head coach I had him right my parents a letter because it was
November and it was gonna be Christmas so I’m gonna give him a letter under the
Christmas tree that said that I got a scholarship so I didn’t tell him I got a
scholarship yet basically if you don’t get a scholarship the first semester we
can’t afford for you to go to Vanderbilt it’s a little little price
and I gave him that they opened it and we’re ballin and ruined Christmas for my
sister that year but you know that I didn’t mean to but that was that was it
it was pretty awesome but I also an interesting thing that I talked about in
the in the book is that when you set a really big goal and you achieve it it’s
really dangerous if you don’t have other bigger goals after that because I had a
major letdown after I got my scholarship because I got scholarship and also I’m
the starting defensive end I’ve gained maybe 20 pounds maybe and we’re going to
play SMU and I played awful I mean it was I couldn’t feel my legs I was so
nervous and I didn’t know what was going on it’s because I hadn’t visualized that
part of it I just visualized getting a scholarship and then now sudden all
these expectations and it took me it took me a while to kind of come back
around and it all ended up working out but but it was just really an
interesting lesson that I learned from that is when you set a goal you got to
have a series of other goals after that three even bigger to keep pushing
towards or you kind of get lost and kind of get that letdown Tony Robbins talked
about a lot yeah I mean it is the game right but it’s almost like your own
internal mindset game it’s funny because I bring him a sports psychologist every
month she’s a regular she’s actually one of our regular kosai Briana sports
nutritionist every month and it’s a shout-out to dr. Megan and also Aaron
barold our sports nutritionist but awesome girls and Megan it’s funny
because again the show is branded health business lifestyle but her being you
know again sports psychologist you can’t beat mindset work so the word mindset
now is all over this brand and all over the blog and all over the podcast
because I can’t tell you how many guest codes like yourself where you don’t
realize you’re even gonna get into the mindset discussion and it just it just I
think it’s just such an essential component yeah yeah yeah because that’s
if you don’t have the right mindset IV I was reading something actually earlier I
wish I could remember who that who that was from but they said you never want to
sit down to set goals or to plan out an action plan for the day or for the week
actually it’s in some of the russell brunson stuff that he’s coming out with
models I’ve got about three or four days
digitally on yeah yeah 30-day challenge some of his success stories and one of
them was saying you know you don’t ever want to go in to setting a big goal or
something like that with the wrong energy if you’re kind of depressed you
don’t really think it’s gonna work and you put down a plan you’re not really
gonna you’re gonna have that negative energy associated with that plan so you
have to get yourself hyped up and fired up for the end result and then that’s
when you start making the plan because that’s when it’s gonna flow a lot easier
and so just being like writing it down on us I’m not gonna do this and this
isn’t gonna happen well this is all tied together with all the different I’ve had
numerous people on the show as well I mean we got over we’re approaching 220
shows now up online so 2 years of hustle but it’s it’s the flow state right we
talked a lot about flow state as you move up in the game so to speak of the
personal professional mindset development game is you start
discovering these flow States and in order to unlock that said flow state
part of it is what you’re just discussed is what do you what is the groundwork
you’re laying you know what is the common thread that’s been your priestess
being a fitness junkie is I feel guilty because I keep saying it all the time
now and I can’t help it but it’s like I constantly using this new quote of like
oh he’s got to put in the reps what are you doing to put in the reps because the
repetitions granted the correct repetitions will build that road so to
speak and build that mindset up so I love doing that I’m sure that kind of
goes along with what I was saying about not drinking my first semester or year
in college it’s cuz in the back of my mind I wanted to be going out with him
and having fun but I wasn’t willing to sacrifice that and so that’s part of
what fueled my fire I’m like Mester in college because of this so I’m gonna get
this scholarship because I’m not doing that for nothing
so you see you scored that scholarship halfway through the box before the
holidays yeah that’s huge yeah I mean it was I’d never I never heard of it really
before and it was so awesome because the other guys that were in my class that
had scholarships literally I hadn’t coming to me going dude I will tell him
to take my scholarship and give it to you because I mean this is just
ridiculous and I was like oh thanks and so you feel because part of your bio
right cuz I’m not familiar with this award but thanks to your first four
years here at Vanderbilt you actually were awarded the Wade Looney
award for ‘outstanding ask any work ethic and I love that keyword of ethic
is huge I’ve learned that since being a farm kid to do in the corporate space –
when I got to serve a couple years as a firefighter it’s just like dude ethic
your work ethic is huge so it surprised me that with that mindset work you’re
talking about that you obviously achieved that so and and getting back to
the flow State it was kind of cool because when I got that award it was
right after the spring game and in the spring game is when it’s the black and
gold game at Vanderbilt and a new event yeah it’s beginning you’ll say hell I
mean as big as it can be at Vandy back then it was not okay I think we won two
games our first two seasons I was there but uh it’s an event that you’re going
against your teammates and the ones against the ones it’s basically just a
glorified scrimmage and I was so in the zone it was it was really funny because
the guy was going against Erik Dahl burgers his name’s from Chicago big
offensive lineman he ended up running marathons after he was done with school
and it’s probably weighs 200 pounds now but um I was going against him cuz he
just happened to be the guy was going against and literally in my mind things
were happening so it was like everything was in slow motion and I would just look
down at his stance and tell if his if his fingers were like white because he
was leaning forward I knew it was a run because he was coming at me if it were
sit back as more of a pass if he was pulling all that and stuff and I was
just beating him like a stepchild so bad so much so that he literally asked me to
ease up a little bit because it was making yeah yeah it’s funny because I’m
very competitive person and it’s not like you’re trying to one-up somebody
but it’s just again mindset game like two weekends ago I’m a huge CrossFit guy
I’m a CFO one coach and I don’t have as much time anymore to do the actual
coaching and kind of just fill in when I have free time to help out my buddies
with their gyms because I go to two different gyms because I’m I nicknamed
myself the CrossFit horror I just love dropping in at any CrossFit
gym I stumble across when I’m traveling I just love the community anyway it’s
funny though because you know part of that is just I don’t know I guess I’m
gonna tie this back into the I said pieces that they’re too different
if he ever did a CrossFit thing but it’s like it’s two different communities two
different people and it’s funny my fiancee when I met her I didn’t know she
was into CrossFit and because she’s a veterinary doctor
so just interesting little hybrid I guess anyway we just learned that since
I’m a coaching person and I spent 11 years coaching ussa ski race coaching
everything else like sometimes I can’t turn it off
I said well anyway two weekends ago we we did our first legit comp together and
won it I mean I think the secret to that win was one it was it was the weekend on
my 41st birthday I just turned 41 on Friday so Saturday this is the September
21st 22nd weekend and I said all right I know I was like dude I got to show
people that age is only a number I have to win this comp
it’s not a birthday gift to myself in order to ensure that while we’re there
that day I just did not say anything I did not criticize any of her movements
her for more technique nothing because it’s just not a good idea no no she’s not even a wife yeah but the
quote of happy wife happy life and I just it’s funny though again that
competitive mindset like sometimes I can’t shut it down so I don’t know I
think it’s it’s interesting you bring that up because sometimes some of us
might feel bad about it but I mean should you feel bad about it I mean if
your mindset is dialed in that good and you’re just go go go you’re not trying
to one-up that guy you’re just why a no it’s funny there was another guy James
Baron that I played with in the Arena Football League that he was he was
awesome and it was so funny if something happened and they scored a touchdown on
us or something or somebody made a mistake and people would come try to
comfort him I know it’s okay it’s okay he would get so mad and come over and be
like okay what do you talk about that’s not okay I love it I love it you know
something that you see you mentioned earlier we were discussing this I have
to segue into it because I think it’s important and I love I want to get into
your Cairo stuff but I also noticed actually going back to screen share
again ladies and gentlemen I I mentioned a few of his books but he hasn’t does
it’s just done like two or three dozen most like twelve why haven’t you yeah
let me scroll down here cuz obviously a good Kush in class I want to hit on that
but here we go there’s some more fun a few more you don’t need your glasses or
contacts twenty surprising foods for clear vision chiropractic care for clear
vision clearly you’re a vision nut that actually happens to be one of my most
popular books really which one yeah the very first one their contacts
interesting I think great graphics by the way on the on the cover but though
why why do you feel that is have you done the research have you actually I’ve
done it on myself and and it worked with probably fifty different patients on it
it’s not I can’t take the credit for the technique that it is because it’s it was
dr. Bates it was an ophthalmologist back in the 1800s they came up with these
different strategies because he looked at glasses it’s kind of like a crutch
because it’s not gonna allow your vision to actually correct on its own thank you
yeah and so if you do these particular exercises that he talked about he came
up with that focuses on the muscles on the outside of the eyes that changes the
shape of the eye and where and how it focuses and I mean it just it blew me
away I wear glasses since the eighth grade and hated wearing glasses when I
was playing football in eyeglass contacts and I have an astigmatism and
they always said oh you can’t fix that yeah you can’t there’s all different
kinds of exercises you can do that it’ll fix those problems I did his exercises
and within two weeks I didn’t need my glasses and haven’t had them in probably
five years well I loved this is funny you’ll appreciate this then because I
should have found how long his book been out now actually 2015 yeah I’m on Amazon
I click through your links so that’s right lady at least in jail maybe just
go to his website click on the book takes you right to where you need to be
an Amazon score the book okay and I Lima getting paid to tell him tell
you guys this but I love new new content new books so this is gonna frustrate
video now because now I got a score a bunch of your books and get through it
not real quick segue are any of these inaudible yes since we kind of hinted
about the honorable game they are not unfortunately I started my whole journey
down the online marketing thing when I went from a practice that was actually
connected with Jan it was a lot of fun but circumstances
didn’t a lot didn’t I didn’t stay there and I went to the new practice where
there was a gentleman that the head doc had a YouTube channel he was doing
videos every Tuesday and sometimes on Thursdays as well but he only had like
two thousand subscribers and so I figured out okay I’m gonna show this guy
how to set up online passive income I’ve been listening to Pat Flynn bat Flynn
yeah and he was talking all about ebooks and that was the thing bact business of
like 10 years ago and so I said you know we need to come up with some ebooks and
I kind of used that because he would find all the all the text part of it and
so I taught myself how to do all that stuff how to do the Kindle books the the
CreateSpace ebooks smarta the audible books we did a video course we set up
and it was like four or five videos of him talking about blood pressure and
made 25 grand in three months from that so that so he was happy he was the only
downside is that his his son decided he would wanted to come back in town and so
he decided to give the whole online aspect of it to him and so it was this
doctor john bergman yeah because like i do i google your name on youtube and all
your videos are coming up there’s in correction and everything else and it’s
I see it’s dr. John Birdman’s Channel yes you have your own right yeah but I I
was so focused on his channel I haven’t really but that’s fine though because
it’s it’s this is ladies and gentleman we talk about marketing cuz I’m a
marketing branding consultant I tell people use brands to help bring other
brands up with it you get name recognition by helping somebody else
sometimes you got to help somebody else succeed and then you just just stay
hitched up to the train man so yeah and that’s an interesting story too because
we just had to pay to patients two brothers come in from Australia that
have a youtube channel that has over four-and-a-half million viewers or
subscribers and they were so excited about their treatment that they did a
series on the office and I mean he’s gaining like thousands of people by the
minute it seems like wow well yeah so you said when you started helping John
just a little little got I got a boast for you here I mean let me sub some
screen sharing again and gentleman you said when you started
working together his channel had 2,000 subscribers or something like that
uh-huh so now you have over a half a million subscribers five hundred six
thousand seven hundred eighty eight to be exact
so yeah strong work sir why thank you what actually I took him from 2000 to
about a little over a hundred thousand and then that’s when his son stepped in
and sort of eewan everything so I can’t take all the credit for that no a whole
point here is teamwork right like somebody’s guys start building the
momentum you know the guy was already into the video content everything so why
not like you just helped trigger a lot of other things so and that’s one of the
things that I that I’ve learned to through this is you have to always post
like as you know with extreme health Academy that’s something he’s doing with
Kate and Justin Stellman out here he’s averaging between five and ten thousand
views per per release every week or two so that’s good yeah he forgot what I was
gonna say anyway well we were talk about the teamwork and growing the channel
together and what I learned from that is consistently posting content is vital
you have you have to do that because it’s gonna feel like oh you know I I’m
not really doing it I I mean I tried to do or I did a YouTube channel for a
little while but just the work involved the research involved was just like and
doing 12-hour days – Justin people I was just like I’m tired and so here’s a fun
lesson I’m bigger on like Instagram Facebook everything else but I believe
listen YouTube is owned by Google so sorry ladies and gentlemen gonna geek a
little bit real quick what he just said so this is a little lesson for any of
you looking to build the side hustle because you do it does take time I’ve
had a YouTube channel for years and a beginning I’ll just post like
inspirational content thoughts of the day stuff like that did a couple product
reviews nothing big and then with the podcast the podcast gave me an excuse to
generate content cuz even on my blog like the the podcast episodes get
released as blog articles so really there’s actually two blogs on Lillith
feel calm there’s just the regular article piece and then there’s all the
podcasts history so in the Google world I don’t care right the in the end I’m
generating two new blog posts weekly but they’re podcast episodes so same thing
from episode 51 forward I’ve done this I wanted to be one of the early like hey
guys let’s start publishing video content and it wasn’t anything explosive
right away and I still don’t get like the level of easy you’re getting on his
channel but in the past month and a half all of a sudden the the channel 5 crap
crossed that that thousand subscriber threshold and I’ve in the past 30 days
I’ve jumped another 400 plus subscribers that’s certain that certain tipping
point it starts to kind of build on itself and before you know it you’re
like holy mackerel well I think he hears what you’ve already already already gave
everybody the tip consistency putting in the reps cuz then eventually the
algorithms are recognizing who is the consistent contributors and that’s I
already know that’s where my momentum all of a sudden just came from is
because I’ve been putting in the reps two videos a week you know for the past
year plus since moving on to a audio and video platform so yeah I actually took
that a little bit to the extreme and decided 56 days to go to do a daily
podcast so I’ve been doing that oh yeah you are aggressive well I’m just in a
situation where I want to I want to be you know living with the patent the
passive income from online stuff so that I can kind of get out of the office a
little more let’s do a quick shout out for that man like whether it’s actually
the name of your show it’s a block well it’s on blog talk radio calm
no it’s the brain builders okay yeah well there’s brain builders and then
there’s a brain builders masterclass that’s the online class that I’m okay
that’s your webinar series yeah yep yeah cuz I just say I saw that that’s cool oh
I will dig into brain builders too there’s a link to the podcast at the
very bottom of my web page oh sweet perfect so are you on any other podcast
platforms or is it just link through blog talk radio
it’s just linked to blog talk radio cuz I haven’t had a chance to figure out how
to link it up to other stuff yeah cuz I really you want to crush in a podcast
world you have to be publishing to at least iTunes because most of the other
third-party apps out there that run podcast they’re actually pulling the RSS
feeds from iTunes but like obviously Google Play I’m a big
fan of stitcher radio stitcher radios app was designed for podcasters that’s
what I use listen to all the podcasts so but there’s podcasts that don’t exist on
stitcher so but the one that all set up the one be not cast one last night radio
and it automatically is linked up to iTunes so just I’m assuming that’s how
it would work hopefully but I could test that well we’ll look for that while
we’re on when we’re doing the show I love I love answering questions but you
know for my co-host so actually yeah there you go actually I’m a screen share
again love the logo by the way yeah when you scroll down ladies and gentlemen I’m
on his book page but when you scroll but if I’m on his book page you scroll all
the way down and right there I’m guessing this is the most recent episode
no that actually why it looks like that cuz that’s supposed to be the no it’s
not okay well let me go back to the home page
maybe because depending on how actually that that’s actually a trick you don’t
always have to cycle the most recent episodes some people on their sites
they’ll cycle like you know maybe a specific episode this target is he now
here I’m gonna homepage that’s my very first episode just cuz I like the title
nice yeah 20th century medicine is dead yeah actually perfect segue I’ve been
wanting to talk about this since we started the show because my good buddy
well we may have to get you guys connected up somehow to try but I’ve
even heard of Vinny torta rich no I’m not okay
you mentioned earlier in the show that while you were putting in the hustle
putting in the reps at school you did not drink you prayed every day but my
important thing that I picked up on you said was you didn’t consume excess sugar
why because sugar is toxic mm-hmm not just toxic but obviously what is that
what has it manifest in the body inflammation yeah inflammation and you
can’t afford to be inflamed when you’re beating yourself up every day so would
you say I’m not going to throw a bunch of the buzzwords out there what would
you say that you embrace and love to follow the passion behind low-carb lchf
high fat versus low fast that’s right if that’s actually good for you
Vittorio’s trademark is she called NS n G which is no sugar no
grains he owns that trademark so nice yeah I’m actually in my research for
Alzheimer’s and brain health I have gone through dr. Bredesen work and the keto
flex 12:3 diet mmm look I’ve been looking at dr. Raymond’s work on
nutrition as well and I that’s the hardest thing for me is because I I for
whatever reason mmm sugar addict and it’s hard for me now to avoid sugar just
the cravings are just out of control but if you start doing more of a keto type
diet then you don’t have those cravings I’m a really big fan of MCT oil brain
octane from bulletproof that kind of stuff because it really helps you to
feel full so the hormone ghrelin doesn’t make you hungry and the battle between
leptin and ghrelin yeah yeah it’s like should be a movie or something maybe
actually well it’s funny you bring that up we have a movie coming for you well
there you go this has already finished the filming
week we crowdfunded it nice so on IndieGoGo we set a minimum goal of 150
which in the moviemaking world is like not enough right you guest stars on Adam
Carolla’s podcast which has the Guinness record of the most successful podcast
like still most more successful in Joe Rogan and his podcast was crushing it
but the lesson here is that literally there was a message then he only
published one well one popular book called fitness confidential which he
ended up that was the name of his podcast show too because he is the his
old branding was America’s angriest trainer or the celebrity fitness trainer
so he lives in LA he grew up down in Louisiana he was oh yeah he went to
Tulane was starting to be like a phys ed teacher but at Tulane like they make you
go into legit like medical class training he was studying courses
alongside of doctors so his level of knowledge in health and fitness is quite
impressive and until a knee is like you know Vanderbilt meal he said good
schools so anyway he learned that well I decided he won the write a book because
he’s a cancer survivor as well thanks to his chosen lifestyle he lives
consistently in a state of ketosis because he was beyond Stage four found
by accident a doctor his doctor friend called him after doing blood work tests
he’s out on a road bike ride in the mountains and she’s like get off your
bike and get to my house as soon as you can and then tells him that he’s got
leukemia so and he beat it and he has lived for the past eight plus years in a
state of ketosis ever since so he’s I mean that’s all I’m hearing and all the
research all the different experts agree that ketosis is one of the best ways
because you have psychologists which is how most of us you know burn glucose for
energy but as we age our brain can’t burn that glucose as efficiently and so
ketones or ketosis is a way that you hold for some energy that we have that a
lot of people don’t even use because they’re so busy stuff in their face with
bread and sugar and rice let’s let’s rewind to hear you you’re a
self-admitted sugar holic right but to your point you just brought the brain
factor and this is the things i’m i’ve three years of my own self development
self work health coaching and everything else me being I’ve been a spinning
instructor ski base coach CrossFit coach granted I’m not a doctor but I actually
know more about nutrition than most MDS that I know unfortunately no but the
point is is because I took the commitment to become my own inner
physician you know to study it’s like listen we can’t keep going through life
blind and following what the government says because they’re guessing at
everything and their guess work has been influenced by certain parties who have
more money like the sugar and grain industry and big pharma and Big Pharma
yeah we can keep going on that one because guess what the sugar and grain
industry had billions of dollars because we spent decades subsidizing that to
protect farmers and and that’s archaic but we still some size subsidized for
some reason with the government and then the pharmaceutical industry has blown up
into the billions if not almost trillions because of those mistakes I’m
allowing that influence into our lifestyle and the side effect of that is
what is disease and disease is a real result of inflammation in the body and I
mean if you want to be a real conspiracy theorist you could just say that they’re
all colluding with each other to keep promoting the more grains and toxic
foods that the farmers get out then more business the big farmers going to
have to get more prescriptions out and that’s going to keep making people sick
and eventually they’re just gonna kill everybody off
yeah and that’s if that’s a big if right like cuz I don’t even like playing the
conspiracy thing but I like it I like your point you could go that far but we
don’t even have to go that far it’s it and this isn’t that far stretched so to
complete the circle and a little influence for you stay tuned for the
beginning of 2019 and you can learn more you should check this out by the way fat
documentary com actually loves I’ll remove my brand from my head oh don’t
show the do ok represent fat a documentary so I helped crowd fund it so
do the social media so I have a certain connection to it so alright I have a
t-shirt that matches it to this hat cost me $100 because well because that was a
parade it’s a donation so we had custom shirts custom hats before I even got
brought in to help with the project it was like I was like oh I’m a big hat guy
I like trucker hats so I was like yeah because I live a more ketogenic friendly
lifestyle I missed her anti sugar last year I did my first metric century Road
biking event on just olive oil everybody thought I was crazy so I had little
vials in my Jersey I’m a big cyclist so yeah I mean granted it wasn’t like I
wasn’t crushing it I wasn’t like a racer but we covered 5,000 feet of climbing
that day too I mean it was you know 60 Plus miles we were doing it for uh it
was a cold local colon cancer event so anyway so I figured you’d appreciate
that so you should check it out though because I just aired an episode with the
low carb cardiologist who’s a doctor Brett Shane yeah so he’s now partnering
up with the diet doctor which is dr. Andreas from Sweden he’s got a viral
following big on the video content like you guys so now brett has now rebranded
his podcast as the low carb cardiologist Paul guess is now becoming the diet
doctor podcast cuz now they’re both gonna Co run the show together because
like you guys dr. Andreas he was big on the video front never had his own
podcast Brett had the podcast both those guys were in San Diego a few months ago
at the was it called low-carb USA event and then he was actually people didn’t
know this video was actually in the next hotel tower on site tearing apart a
hotel room setting up a movie set because they’re trying to do everything
they can to save on the cost of making this documentary film with the
crowdfunding be done sleep there’s all kinds of behind the scenes photos on
Instagram feed because they literally had like they move the bed out on the
balcony and they convert the whole room into this little mini movie set and the
quality of filming is legit I mean it’s impressive so the reason why he went
down there was because all the low carb keto guys were there
so I’m dr. Andreas is in the movie Brett’s in the movie you ever hear of a
Nina ty Schultz the big fat surprise author she’s in it she’s like she’s like
one of those like hardcore journalists that has that has done like all the it’s
like a researcher she’s like a researcher but a journalist so she’s
viral because her book that a big fat surprise highly recommended this is kind
of full circle to earlier in the show where you’re like I want to ask about
some of the books well I’m kind of connecting it for you there you go
what’s that one on the top of the shelf there oh that one I bought about five of
those because all my buddies are let how you’ll appreciate this this is for all
the people ladies and gentleman scald one simple idea so instead of trying to
design build create and patent their new product which takes a lot of work and a
lot of money why not take your amazing ideas license them and just sell to
another company you’re talking about your whole you know making money online
right well right this book is great Steven key is like the world-renowned
guru on just licensing all of his ideas so instead of like going crazy like and
paying for the patent process in the trademarking process everything else was
like all you got to do is license your idea and then if a company likes it let
them pay you the royalties so that’s his whole hack so I have a couple very very
intelligent friends of mine that are still stuck in a corporate world and my
one best friend is full of amazing ideas and he’s only taking action like maybe
one of them heat this this guy even has patents on nanotechnology that he’s
thought of that’s our Chi I’m like dude I’m tired of you like saying I wish I
had your freedom I was like you’re way more intelligent in these areas than I
am it’s a difference between him and me is I’ve taken the action and taken the
risks I’m sure you could speak to both going back to your goals book right like
you have to set the goals but even the best goals in the world if you’re not
taking the action and putting in the reps you’re not getting anything done
yep so anyway fun book highly recommended and it is on audible I just
finished it on auto I finished in like two days inaudible that’s why I love
audible so and that’s something we needed get you you get the stuff
inaudible I will buy every digital version the rest of problem that I start
buying books and digital and physical because this is a good example of it so
yeah yeah I never know if I want to do if I want to do my own recording or like
pay somebody to affectional reader you want my opinion yeah okay if your voice
sucks right okay but you’ve put in enough reps with being an author being
on video you’re not afraid so some people are
that more behind the scenes and they want to pay for that voice-over
professional but when I finish my book I’m totally doing the audio I’m sorry I
already told that my voice is pretty good so even if it wasn’t I love
audiobooks that are self authored you know or self voiceover because a lot of
times people go off a script because it’s their book and there’s something
passionate they want to dig into but they couldn’t dig into it in the
physical edition because they had to cut the book down your advantage of an
audiobook is you can add in those little extra pieces of content to help reach
what you said to help reach those thresholds to make a longer book right
but that’s the beauty of that you have your standard script but if something
you’re really passionate about that you couldn’t put in the physical book more
of a cross-selling benefit right because like hey guys if you love the physical
score the audible because i was able to go even deeper into some of these areas writing is something else that’s really
cool too I literally I am on I was asked to be on
the board of a new charity down in San Diego called beyond concussion and it’s
worked really closely with junior sales sister and she has her own foundation
but we’ve set up our own and it was really kind of random because we have a
big event coming up October 27 search in a couple weeks and they asked me
yesterday to host the event basically and be the emcee and I thought that was
kind of awesome is that is of all the books you published on the concussion
and I was yeah and just because of the background with the football and stuff
and it’s one of those things where I think anytime you have an opportunity to
speak in front of a group of people especially if there’s gonna be like
media coverage and you know TV newspapers or whatever I mean you have
to say yes you just don’t even think don’t even think twice about it don’t
get worried about all what I’m gonna be people are gonna be looking at me and
I’m not any good at this or that would forget all that if you want to have a
different life you got to make different choices and you got to get yourself out
there so I’m doing some screen share again for our video watchers again
listeners if you ever want to do this it’s on youtube be on concussion org
right yeah and that’s coming up the next screen is the one that it’s at the very
top there were there it is up there oh there we go oh say first anniversary
cocktail party you know really first anniversary yeah it hasn’t been around
very long it’s pretty new see every year that I used to coach ski I just stepped
down a couple seasons ago because I just all the time and I was I was actually
volunteering last couple years cuz you know you’ll appreciate this from sports
you don’t make a lot of money being a coach uh-huh especially in the ski race
world maybe in the pro football world I don’t know but I it’s like I got to the
point where we were enough for profit ski team here in the Northeast PA anyway
so I was like I’d rather just donate my hours it’s it’s it’s a side thing it’s
not a business thing so right but we had to when we renewed our USSA ski race
coach certifications for the insurance purposes everything else we always
renewed our concussion training every single season you had to complete that
course right though concussions are very important to address yeah it because
again going back to when you played a lot has changed you want a hint on
all right so literally and I didn’t even play when it was I mean back when my dad
was playing they wouldn’t let you drink water during training camp because they
thought you couldn’t get in shape if you drink water what yeah because that’s
just replacing the sweat they thought when you were sweating that’s what I was
good that’s what got you in shape was just sweating and they didn’t want you
to replace it with water well that’s just not just an honor but water and
salts like those people need at hand for all is a natural electrolyte yeah but
anyway so I remember a specific time I mean I’ve had multiple concussions
obviously and didn’t only think a lot about them but I was in practice once
and if your face masks lines up just right with somebody else’s face mask and
you hit right at the right or wrong angle it sends a shockwave through your
brain gives your brain is like sloshing around in your skull in that and that
cerebral spinal fluid yeah there’s only so much of a buffer zone between the
skull and oh yeah and the cells got all kinds of sharp little pointy things
sticking down and so I I hit this guy and Tony plan was his name hit this guy
he also got my bicep tendon but that’s another story
and I went cross-eyed and I couldn’t see inside and it was just in the drills no
big deal so I sat there for a minute on my hold on hold on I can’t see I can’t
see give me a second and so my solution is to hit myself on the side of the head
until my eyes uncross yeah well then what’s a uncrossed I was fine and just
jump right back in no concussion assessment oh my god he’s dying nothing
like that and then like probably that same season I was running down I was a
little bit older I was probably 30 at this point running down on the kickoff
and I’m all thinking I’m hot stuff I’m gonna show this guy what’s what’s what’s
going on here and so I acted like I was gonna run around this guy and then I ran
right over him the next thing I know I’m looking up at the lights go what this
happened well you literally thought you were gonna be able to run a by him and
you did him wrong I wanted to run I wanted to run over him oh I’m gonna
teach him a lesson that you know he can you know stand up to the old guy or
whatever okay I have no idea who it was but literally I blinked and I’m on my
back looking up at the lights so obviously he’d been knocked
unconscious didn’t say anything just go off the field and get back in the game
there’s no big deal hmm yeah so it was a little different back then it was it’s
interesting because I many years ago a local like bar restaurants just I have
a social person I just start talking my fiance can’t stand it and III I’m very
good at networking I have a very large network so it is what it is anyway I
started talking to the waitress and I find out that uh it was funny we were
just got done doing a workout or something went there for like a
post-workout like snack or something and this is years ago and somehow she starts
asking us to show our ABS I don’t know it was talking about because I was
taught about my lifestyle choices and she came from an athletic background
anyway but the the company the company she got better because I learned that
she suffered from major concussion trauma from from high school into
college sports it’s at a point where she couldn’t even play anymore it was bad
and it took her years to correct this and then she became a concussion
advocate so I didn’t know that was a thing right so she’s a at least over
round this area became well-known as the local concussion advocate she’s gonna
spoken to I know a lot of the farm teams for like Whistler’s hockey around here
there’s baseball around here she spoke at the smaller sub sub Pro farm teams
and now she ended up landing a job with a news network down in Philadelphia so I
still see her doing all kinds of now news related segments and everything
else but she’s still heavily tied at the health of fitness sector because she’s
so passionate about the concussion factor because it prevented her from
even being able to finish her college degree for a while and then eventually
that’s a sad thing we have guys the beyond concussion group we actually pay
for uber xand list to get people to their doctor’s appointments because if
it’s just them and they they aren’t able to drive they had no way to get there
and so we helped to get them to and from their appointments and and stuff like
that but I know a guy back in high school he was a little bitty guy he’s
actually a minister now ironically that got concussions I mean he would throw
himself in the play I mean he was all in he was just a little bitty guy and he
probably had a dozen concussions in high school before they finally were like you
know what you just we can’t let you play anymore if you keep knocking yourself
out and yeah it’s just scary the mentality back then it’s like all right
I’m tough I’m like I gotta get you to talk to Vinnie I will
warn you like Vinny’s like he’s more straightedge to me like doesn’t doesn’t
edit anything but he played football and he’s a big football guy from his college
years and stuff that’s what helped him afford to go to Tulane and he’s a big
and he taught he’s a few SEPA so this guy’s he’s been podcasting for six years
he’s got approaching 2000 shows like so he does very well I’ll say like I would
love to get you exposure on his show from what especially for your mission
what you talk about for bringing help too because he’s like well yeah you
didn’t there’s no can worry about concussion back in the day you just went
back in and shook it off granted thanks to science and and us finally paying
attention especially for youth athletes that’s that’s why it’s so scary because
you the youth your brain is still developing right though sending a child
back into his sport with potential existing trauma and the trauma hasn’t
even fully healed and you take a hit again this was big in the ski racing I
remember a few years ago a kid he was at a race our our home mountain and he had
felt fallen but nobody fought one of their he popped back up finished the
course I then during break he luckily he didn’t hit his head I was fine but
during the break session between the afternoon sessions where they had to
reset the course come back and compete again he went into the park so he’s in
there doing tricks and crap with some of his buddies and didn’t tell anybody that
he fell and hit his head well by time it came around hit the afternoon session
setting up at the start he was vomiting that’s a good sign right there maybe
your body is sent into full-blown vomit Ramah like that’s like all right that’s
my little hashtag vomit trauma it’s like okay wake-up call and we pulled him said
you need to be cleared by your family doctor get the heck out of here and sure
enough he had a major concussion so god forbid you don’t want to have to be
taken to the point Obama trauma you’re supposed to recognize these things a lot
a lot sooner like slurred speech lack of attention span not really clear
clarifying their their conversation general hold of a normal
conversation these are all things that I learned from yeah and that’s the funny
thing too I when I was in Houston there was a guy on the team named Craig VZ
that had played at University of Houston and he told a story about when he had
gotten his bell rung once and you know the trainer’s come up to him and they
they they held up a couple fingers and they’re like how many fingers am i
holding up and the guy said Wednesday Wow
they’re like now you’re here you’re done where did it go with a complete lack of
comprehension of speech yeah it was it was scary but dr. Nowinski that works
with the Harvard study up there that has the biggest group of brains that they’re
studying have studied I think they have over 300 brains now that they’ve studied
well he’s a big supporter of not having any contact sports at all until you’re
at least 13 12 to 13 years old and you can play like flag football so that
gives you all the reaction times and all that kind of stuff but no head trauma
and if you do that your risk of getting the long-term chronic traumatic
encephalopathy to CTE is just almost zero because you know a lot of those
guys are only gonna play maybe in high school and maybe in college but
percentage-wise ER there’s not a lot that are gonna go on in played pro so
that’s the biggest wake-up call if you had to sum up this chat about youth
sports is yeah guys like I had this out of teachers – a lot of parents like guys
like your kids are learned that race ski race and northeastern Pennsylvania in
the Pocono Mountains no offense the chances of an Olympian
right coming out of our team come on I mean yes you might if you if your kid
good okay if you’re good you might score that college scholarship right you set
your mindset you do the great interviews you keep kicking butt taking names
you’re focused you might score like a nice college scholarship either out to
Colorado or up to Vermont New Hampshire where some of our kids did but in the
end like you got to think about the rest of your life or the rest as a coach the
rest of that child’s life and once you understand and learn about the risks of
concussion man you got it you got to put that kid’s health first dr. Raymond had
a story in his book he was talking about one of his friends came up and say hey
my son he’s 12 he wants to play football and I want to make sure I connect him
with the right coaches and get him the right training what do you think he
should do and doctor anyone was like well if you’re someone to do cocaine
would you find him a dealer and he’s like what do you what are you talking
about and he’s like well according to my studies you have the same amount of
brain damage from playing football as you do from doing cocaine Wow I was just
like wow I actually created I used scene I use the cocaine thing when I relate to
sugar yeah kind of kind of bring that chat full circle right is that the the
level the levels of sugar in our modern manufactured made in the USA food system
is off the charts yes because we can only handle about 15
grams a day and that’s that’s a day yeah at a dose I think the brain and and the
end of liver I think it’s 2 to 4 grams at a single dose and everything else is
crazy so cuz that kind of brings us full circle back to your your your big impact
of being a sugar guy and you understanding brain health and obviously
talk about brain builders let’s tie that back together a lot of people need to
understand that you know what is the ratio is it I don’t if you notice off
the top your head but isn’t it like at least 80% or greater of our brain tissue
is fat it’s fat yeah so yeah ringing % yeah the rest is water so your brain is
fueled by healthy fats like if you if you’re fueling your body on sugar it’s
you’re not actually helping your brain help at all right well yeah very good
you go back to college what were we doing to stay awake and study nowadays
it’s still big Deadpool’s coffee sugar take a nephron back in the day oh man I
took ephedrine yeah that was not what was it a body cut or something cause he
cut oh that was one and one I used to take was called max lean with from Max
Muscle at down here in Southern California yeah here’s a little hint
people if you start feeling a shudder of your heart like a heart publication or
something it’s not going to stop taking that of your arms and legs start to feel
kind of tingly that’s not a good not a good thing no no what I and one of the
good things too it’s not to interrupt I’m sorry uh the
the supplement that I have the brain builder supplement or the brain man it I
take a portion of all the proceeds sales of that and can donate that to the
gridiron greats foundation in the after the impact fund so those are four people
that played football and now they’re in their 60s and 70s and back when you
didn’t make a lot of money and they need money for hearing aids or you know a
variety of other things and the after the impact fund that’s for the military
that have PTSD oh here we go in the healthy here I just click through yeah
there you go brain med after the impact veterans and legends the gridiron greats
assistants fun-loving that’s a really great event they have every year in
Vegas Howie Long was there last year he was an interesting guy and talked about
how he talked about how he when he got up on stage he was getting an award and
he said you know it’s funny because my kids let’s talk about everybody talked
about me making all this money and then I actually need to borrow money for my
kids half the time because they make way more money than I do
yeah that’s scary right yeah it’s very scary you can scroll down to the very
bottom if you want and click the button instead the picture I got to change that
yeah yeah I’m just I thought I’d soo-min on it I mean so basically a cerebral
blood flow can decrease up by up to 50% ladies and gentlemen this is for our
traditional podcast listeners after a here’s your acronym people low case M
TBI so major traumatic brain injury and this utilizes nootropic herbs such as
gingko biloba and is that been posting yeah there’s a buzz word of the day
vinpocetine at the end there you got omega-3s right again
fat healthy fatty acids your brain says just fat people come on so he’s him down
here at the very bottom that button you’ll take you to the actual more
descriptions or wherever underneath the thing no no there we go
click on the supplement bottles and then click on the button after that oh yeah
that actually took me into the actual page we had all the badges and stuff so
yeah but then at the very bottom it that’s just the intro page at the very
bottom of that page they’d get more info okay there we go
I was interesting so is that supplement mostly too
but basically mostly like healthy fats well it’s the the brain Mentos magus is
the healthy fatty omega-3s and then the brain net are the one the no tropics
that help boost circulation things like that and it’s got phosphatidylserine
that is a phospholipid that helps to strengthen cell membranes there you go
there you go increased focus boosts brain power increased memory protection
and let’s let’s tie something back to sugar here again even if you’re taking
stuff like this it’s still our personal accountability to clean the the pardon
the word diet I don’t like diet cuz I’m all about lifestyle diet is such a short
term psychological programming it is about the lifestyle I’m sure you can
back that up but in the ends like sugar is what’s in flamin our arteries and
constricting blood flow I’ve had on multiple cardiologists who explained is
the ones that actually realize crap we’ve been following the wrong stuff the
past 20 30 40 years like this whole like whoa no no no fats collecting as plaque
inside our vessels like actually no it’s not
it’s your vessels are inflamed the plaque is inflammation if you can reduce
things that trigger inflammation and have things like this because I do
support supplementation unfortunately I grew up on a farm what
what I ate as a kid compared to what we have today as far as nutrient density
mineral density vitamin density not not what it was that one was you can slap an
organic badge in that is still not gonna make it better
am I wrong I don’t know what are your thoughts that’s a sad thing they talk
about the whole food pyramid and that was the whole all the food pyramid it’s
great but I think the biggest thing I’m the the biggest part of the food pyramid
was like breads and grains and stuff like that I’m like are you kidding me it
was a big it was a flip that was the problem is that if you look at the old
kind of before the pyramid even existed the baseline was always fats and
proteins right and and the top of the pyramid the smallest dose was maybe
grains and stuff like that but again if you study history and governments and
everything else it’s we ended up subsidizing farming to protect and save
the farming industry because we needed to hold member the old program feed
America bro yeah the farmers were hurting the Great
Depression all that stuff triggered from years ago whoa
don’t need to subsidize it anymore and it’s still subsidized to this day
because they realize how much money they can make off of it yeah and then the
government can kind of have a little more say on what farmers do be like oh
well we’re subsidizing this so you need to do this this and this and here’s the
funny part I’m not very political but I have no
problem talking about that because it’s stupid it’s like guys like the reason
why we have tiers of government local state cuz I live in a one of the old
Commonwealth seats Pennsylvania colonial state Massachusetts Virginia they’re
called Commonwealth’s well we still heavily trust try to trust our local and
state government that’s the point federal should never step in unless
there’s a problem at the local state level so just back off all right let let
businesses thrive let them figure it out let farmers do what they know best I
have a lot of Amish and men and I here trust me they know what they’re doing
they don’t listen to anything government related they just want to get their
check so well this I just want to protect your time because we’re going
over on our time slot you still good for a couple of minutes okay so you know me
I just got emails and and websites and all that stuff to design but yeah you
know it’s yeah what do you think I had doing rest of my afternoon
yeah we’re brothers from another online marketing mother so real quickly I do
want to tie back ladies and gentlemen the beyond concussion program since we
did shout them out on this show I’m gonna make sure all their profiles if
it’s cool with you or linked in your blog post when we put it up when you’re
episode they don’t have a big enough following yet we need a grow and and and
I think it’s because I mean the heart our hearts in the right place but they
don’t they’re not really savvy or and they just don’t know how to really build
it so I’ve been trying to help out as much as I can but I’m I’m you know two
hours hour and a half away up in Huntington Beach it makes it a little
more challenging well but again though like I coach clients virtually over zoom
like we’re doing today so like I’m working with a oncologist
and his health coach wife from Florida so he’s a big Quito obsessed oncologist
so hello people cancer and I think it’s important at least people are trying but
the organizations like this it’s hard right because I’m a for purpose business
it’s almost two years ago and I flipped my programming so
it’s actually a lot it actually really helps amplify your business here’s
another hack if you hard-code a percentage of your income into a for
purpose model saying listen at 5 percent 10 percent hell if it’s only 1 percent
just hard code a percentage saying listen moving forward I’m gonna set up a
separate account and I’m gonna dump a percentage into that and that has to be
used for non profit nonprofit initiatives donations whatever it
changes your whole mindset about how you run your business it’s like wait a
minute if I grow my company or grow my
businesses my online platforms etc that means as I make more money I’m able to
give more so there’s the hack for you ladies and gentlemen is that if you are
trying to find purpose with what you do then create it just say great I’m just
gonna I’m gonna create a non-profit initiative maybe haven’t even picked out
a charity yet but I want to help every charity out
there from a marketing perspective but obviously in the end I still got to pay
my bills and I gotta take care of my family so I try and pick a new
organization every so often it kind of like sorry one of my clients in my
portfolio they have to be not for profit driven and I try and help them grow
their brand and social media and everything else so I love the fact
you’re trying to help them you know wherever possible
fYI reach out to them and tell them to fix their Twitter link from their site
because it does not go to their page so okay I just found that link from I’ll
make you look like a hero well it’s funny because they literally I mean
we’ve had some some other like Daryl green came in the office and got treated
and so I emailed him about Instagram Alex about the event but it just here we
go yeah everybody’s so busy they aren’t able to house hoping that he could get
beyond to come out and stuff like that’s a quick fix all’s I got to do is these
icons here yes go into the backend and make sure it’s linked to the right ad
tag and they’ll be fine yeah it’s whether it did not load the Twitter page
so by the way I love their marketing it’s so clean the blogs so oh
interesting that’s why that’s a different at tag at brain trauma helped
the website we had a link to beyond concuss fYI also marketing tip really
try and get them use consistent at tags it’s a marketing
101 thing yeah unless somebody already owns @beyondconcuss because they
probably are if there’s a character limit that’s probably why they did that
but you really I mean it’s hard it’s hard to try and get the same thing
across all platforms yeah luckily mine is live the fuel so it’s shorter so it
was easy for me to lock that down and I don’t think anybody has at beyond
concuss so they might want to consider that – that’s right ladies and gentlemen
we are literally doing live marketing on the podcast today because hey it is what
it is so I got a help I can’t help it I see
something I’m like it’s broken fix that so well you care I care that’s the point
of this right I mean you’ve you’ve now published
multiple books you’re doing online training actually I didn’t want to dig
into that a little bit here so we hit them some supplementation we hit on all
your initiatives I love the fact you actually helped influence some YouTube
growth but the brain builder program yeah you’re doing wild webinar training
I think this is important because people listening this I don’t care who you are
if you know anybody in sports somebody knows somebody who’s had a concussion
even if it’s a mild concussion so brain health is important the brain drives the
body and everything we do in life so why did you launch a brain builders come up
webinar I want to make sure this is here and we least touch on it before we end
the show today well that it’s kind of cuz of my background because I did have
so many years of pro football and then unfortunately multiple concussions that
movie concussion came out and I didn’t want to I didn’t watch it for a year
because I was work my wife was like I don’t know if you should watch it might
freak you out and no and finally watched it and then right around that same time
I found out that my dad was diagnosed with early onset dementia and wow just
like it’s one of those things where you’re looking up going like are I God I
got it I’m this is what I’m supposed to be doing and just with my unique
perspective I’m able to kind of answer questions on concussion related head
brain fog head injuries things like that and also on the Alzheimer’s dementia
side of it and so it’s been a really great group I actually did my own
genetic testing to see what my if I have the genetic marker for
Alzheimer’s which is the apoe4 done I’ve done the same yeah and I do not have
that which I was pretty shocked about but the thing that I really like is that
that there’s a website apoe4 dot info for people that are apoe4 positive that
is phenomenal they are super super helpful and some of the people that are
on the board of that website actually are in my group because they wanted to
see what it was all about they actually promoted it on that website because I
said you know I’m not charging anything I’m just starting this whole thing out I
want to see what people need what what what I can offer and see if it’s going
to be something that you guys would be interested in and you said I was apoe4
dot info yeah okay found it and it’s just been really really great because
they I mean some of the guy there’s a couple in there that are in Colorado
that just are so funny they’re always telling I mean this guy’s super intense
biohacker himself he is a big hiker and he also likes to ski that’s Conrado baby
Iceland yeah and he has that I always leave apnea and so he’s in order to
boost his oxygen levels or I don’t even understand the whole theory behind it
but he duct-taped his mouth closed when he sleeps at night get out of here
forces him to breathe through his nose and he said that creates the co2 Oh to
ratio or something I was like if he’s a biohacker is he actually like is he lean
and mean oh yeah because I will say I’ll bought us a lot of sleep apnea is tied
to too much this visceral fats what collects around your organs that’s the
bad fat right then displaces the natural placement of your organs but also
creates that potbelly effect now you got all that weight pushing in that
abdominal region that’s now not all aligned the way it’s supposed to be
without it and then you got pressure on the base of the lungs and yada yada yada
right what I’ve learned over the years cuz my dad used to suffer from it so
yeah and it’s just it’s just a really great I mean I’m really blessed to be a
part of it just because I am able to I’m going through and I’m reading dr.
Bredesen book and sharing the information and that and the
I’m going over to the stuff that I’ve learned from dr. Amon and um it’s just
it’s we’re gonna be doing our sixth session next Friday we just finished our
fifth one yesterday exciting we had we had the sports psychologist from the
Lakers or used to be the for the Lakers came on and was answering questions
because I wanted to have somebody like a behavioral psychologist that could help
explain you know why caregivers you know feel a certain way sometimes and and you
know how to deal with that and not feel bad about themselves and I also have a
ketone coach actually that was trained by dr. Burch she’s answering questions
on keto in lab for you and then I worked with Cambridge brain sciences that did
cognitive assessments on the on the attendees and we’re gonna see after the
class saw their assessment scores have gone up so it’s it’s kind of exciting
that we should if you’re ever game you should we should plan on doing a
follow-up episode if you have future data you want to share I’d like to I
don’t I mean it’s people need to hear because like we’re hearing that now and
it’s like you already have set the stage where psych mam what happens later now
granted I want people to follow you that that’s one of the ways ladies and
gentlemen if you want to know what happens I’m sure he’ll be publishing
content but another excuses like the invite will be open to get that back
because I’ve brought back on giving here of dr. Anthony J yeah yeah
so yeah it’s OJ’s been on multiple times and so it’s quick for you if you’ve not
done this yet because I know you’re gonna do it did you do the 23 means that
we you did yeah yeah okay did you know you can export the raw data file yeah
and then I said it’s Prometheus for them to analyze it for me well I sent my
Nathan EJ you know I did a live podcast over Facebook Facebook live like this
and we he had already gave two weeks he went through all the genetic profiling
the APO for all that stuff and then he put together an entire health analysis
based on proper supplementation like the summit’s that specifically makes sense
for my genetic markers but also a chemicals concern like be aware of these
certain chemicals or contaminants that could be more detrimental to my genetic
makeup like just so hack cool how you promote that so yeah it’s
really interesting to know because everything’s everybody’s different we
always always like sale would genetically we’re all pretty much the
same it’s like good yeah doing the 23andme you get all that information it
really like for me it said that I was really sensitive to caffeine and I was
like whereas I actually cuz I’ve been drinking my fatty coffee this whole time
with by the way I did I chose to go with whipping cream because I like to change
it up you get bored with the coconut oil and and the whole grass-fed butter which
is amazing alright sometimes yeah little whipping cream is another great hack
it’s very high in rich fats so anyway the point is is that my genetic marker
said that I actually process caffeine 50% faster than most people so the one
thing I have to be careful of though is I also have a genetic marker that says I
retain adrenaline longer it takes me longer to push the adrenaline out of my
system you’re more than sympathetic dominant state then I get a little fired
up and if I haven’t worked out like like my fiance likes cogs used to go like do
something go run run like so it you can I’m a high-energy guy that’s why there’s
firing my logo I mean I want to get people fired up but sometimes apparently
at the genetic level I have a marker that says I if I don’t purge that it
might be too fired up I don’t know very cool and something else you can do too
by the way is drink grape fruit juice with your coffee because there’s no
engine in there and that’s a substance that pulls anything that’s in your
bloodstream into it faster so if you’re drinking caffeine and grapefruit juice
that’ll get the caffeine into your system a lot faster and make it last
longer interesting although I will admit I’m not a juice fan so but that’s just
yeah I can’t help because I’m a hardcore NS ng guy and now granted if you are
gonna do what he just said at least squeeze it yourself because you know
what’s in that if you’re buying the crap off the shelf it’s again we can do a
whole episode about how when you read the grid on the bottle and it says oh
there’s zero grams of sugar and then you go and read the little paragraph of the
actual ingredients like pay attention to that don’t pay it doesn’t the grid the
nutritional facts is BS that’s what the government that this is okay just cover
your bases and you’re covered they don’t care what you stick in the ingredients
paragraph and the other thing I love the hack is when you read the ingredients
paragraph the very word or ingredient they have to put that
in order by by basically density so the first ingredient the paragraph is the
largest amount in there they won’t tell you to eat man fruit but it’s like again
if you’re squeezing your own grapefruit I think you know what’s in the
grapefruit yeah one of the caveats about that though is if you’re taking any
extended release medications you’re not supposed to do that because it’ll cause
it to do something called though stumping when it comes your entire
amount of that prescription into your system at once oh dear Lord yeah you
might want to be careful with that well so again advantage of you geeking out
about chiropractic care so the best part is like we didn’t even really need to
dig it out like the amount of content you share with us say you could tell
you’re just like me you’re a fellow passionate I’m a high supporter of
chiropractic care my fiance last night I was actually you probably would not
appreciate this but I know how to adjust her spine because she just says she does
a breathing exercise and she just wants me to just like babe I’m not a
chiropractor she’s like could you just go to school for that because I really
could like that and I said okay sure well she’s also a tire but she’s a
doctor chiropractic but for she’s a horse vet so she is just she adjusts
horses I mean there I was like why can’t you just go ahead and do that on me and
she’s like no that is not the same she studied alongside of human chiropractic
doctors out in the Midwest so I she she went to oh gosh she went to Cornell for
her undergrad and then went to UPenn for her doctorate and then went out to like
I don’t know Iowa or whatever the big chiropractic
school or yeah so I landed a very smart cookie but no she and I should I go to
the chiropractor we have different chiropractors too we hope we have
different massage therapist we have different chiropractors cuz I took a
little time like find the one that works for you and I have one that she actually
is overly aggressive the way I like it with muscle tissue work so she works on
your system all the time yeah she works me over and then does any minor
adjustments afterwards like I mean there’s it’s amazing because most people
can’t steal dig your elbow into my scapula tissue because I’ve had my
shoulder rebuilt twice then most people won’t do that I’m like she isn’t I mean
most people I’m going to like breathing exercises to get this release
you’re like oh yeah I just sweat on the paper on the headrest when I’m done and
she’s when she actually said she can feel the heat release from my shoulder
when she’s working on me because there’s nerves of me kind of favoring it and
protecting it cuz I’ve had to be done twice 9907 so I figure you get that you
you know you’re doing so yeah yeah so I’m granted it’s weird when she’s like
oh yeah we’re really getting into Mike how do you know she’s like my hands are
starting to sweat you’re giving off so much heat I was like really she’s like
yeah that’s that’s that’s your body by talking so again we can do a holder show
on that oh I highly support what you do thank you
I support what you do as well well you know I’m just not a doctor anyway my
duty is to acquire a whole lot of knowledge and then provide the
platform’s like this to hopefully get it out there and if I get through to one
person or five people or a thousand people I think we’re all doing our part
yeah but on that note to respect our
schedules you’re the guest co-host today so part of my little hack for that is I
want you guys to kind of close the show out no pressure but just everything
you’re doing because you’re doing so much is there like what is your umbrella
message like what is your all-encompassing message that you would
like to leave behind as your final words so if people forget everything else we
talked about but hey it’s like this is this is what Doc John cares about man
like this is what this is why you might want to follow him like this is his
message behind everything he’s doing is there anything that you have
all-encompassing I always go back there was a quote in the movie the secret that
said that where you are today is not who you are it’s who you were in the past
you can be whoever you want to be in the future you just have to make different
life choices now and that can get you to where you want to be you just have to be
aware of it and that’s my job and people like you it’s our job to educate those
people on what the options are to get their health better so that they can be
more successful and I have a book on golf injuries so it could be on playing
golf they could be better they could be better setting goals they can be better
with their arthritis because they got stem-cell therapy there or whatever you
just have to make different choices to get a different result and that’s that’s
my my biggest message I love that all right people
there you go final words let’s hang tight I only give you power goodbye off
the air and give you a few connection people that gets you connected some
people cuz that’s my that’s my final words it’s my whole goal with this show
having over to hundra is like okay I have a network now so if I can get you
more exposure on other people other shows that I’ve been on
I honor so well this is a hang tight ladies and gentlemen we’ve set up
multiple times on the show we did a lot of screen sharing for the video watchers
