How to Fight the Spiritual Battle Against Human Life w/Dr. Jim Meehan

Behind the health deficiencies, chemical disruptions and hormonal imbalances that we’re seeing in our society, is a nefarious, evil and demonic force that’s out to destroy human life.

We are waged in a spiritual warfare against these forces.

What are the activities of these forces in the healthcare system?

How do we become empowered and conscious?

Why are vaccinations evil?

On this episode, esteemed optimization physician Dr. Jim Meehan joins us to share the real reason behind the assault on human life and health.

There’s a real problem both in the science spiritual aspect of vaccinating children with live virus vaccines. When man tries to play God, we do the work of the enemy. -Dr. Jim Meehan

At the start of the show, Dr. Jim shared how he got to where he is now, and his own health journey and transformation.

Next, we talked about how we’re in a holy war, and the behavioral and societal signs of this spiritual battle.

We talked about the rights parents in California have if they haven’t vaccinated their children, the war on masculinity and the importance of health optimization and becoming a scientist of your own health.

We also discussed:

  • How Dr. Jim escaped the indoctrination of sick care
  • What’s driving the addiction to porn, junk food, and pharmaceuticals
  • How vaccination injuries are hurting children and families

Three Takeaways:

The problem with doctors today is that they are getting their science from pharmaceutical reps, not what they are actually seeing in their patients.

One of the biggest problems with vaccinations is that they were only tested on a few patients and for a very short time, so there isn’t enough information to know just how harmful they are.

The spiritual warfare we’re facing is aiming to turn us into weak-minded, weak-bodied, inward-looking consumers who have no soul, no spiritual connections, addicted to drugs, GMO food, and cheap sources of dopamine like porn and video games.

Effective Hormone Balancing for Female Patients with Maryann Simpson

Women are just as much in need of hormone optimization, and they’re practitioners who actually know what they are doing.

Who is a good candidate for hormone optimization?

What are the best protocols for optimizing women’s hormones?

How do we ensure that optimization is something we can implement?

On this episode, I’m joined by Bioidentical Hormone Specialist, Maryann Simpson, who shares how she helps her female patients lead healthier lives.

You’re epigenetically influencing your DNA. Your cells need to have the energy of purpose to replicate in a healthy way. -Maryann Simpson

At the start of the show, Maryann shared how she got to where she is today, and her own health journey and experience.

Next, we talked about what endocrine disruption is doing to women, how Maryann optimizes women’s hormones and the two different types of optimization.

We also discussed the six key factors in optimization.

We also discussed:

  • The machine behind the deliberate manipulation of our DNA
  • The difference between synthetic hormones and bioidentical
  • What women can do right now to improve their health

Three Takeaways

The long-term problems caused by the use of birth control pills include killing women’s feminine power by suppressing their ovarian function and exacerbating endocrine disruption.

Over 90 percent of women who are above 30 are estrogen dominant, while being testosterone and progesterone deficient, which increases their cancer risk.

Pellets don’t work for women because they are expensive, unethical and won’t have lasting results.

The Truth About Statins: A Medical Exposé On Cholesterol-Lowering Drugs

If you know anything about medicine or have older relatives, you’ll have heard about at least one person using statins.

And it’s not hard to see why, given how insanely popular and profitable these cholesterol-lowering drugs are:

“Since their introduction in the late 1980s, statins have been a particularly lucrative class of drugs, primarily for pharmaceutical giants Pfizer, Merck Sharp & Dohme and AstraZeneca.

Pfizer’s Lipitor is the most profitable drug in the history of medicine. At its peak in 2006, yearly revenue for Lipitor exceeded $12 billion USD.

Despite their patents recently expiring, revenue for statins is still expected to rise, with total sales on track to reach an estimated $1 trillion USD by 2020. Statins are very big business.”

But what is the REAL truth on statins?

Are these drugs the miracle medical solutions many doctors say they are?

Or is there a bigger cover-up going on – one where ineffective drugs are being promoted in order to put more money in Big Pharma’s pockets?

These questions and many more will be answered in this article.

But first, it is imperative to understand how cholesterol works in our body, followed by a clear picture of the mechanism through which statins “treat” people.

MANY thanks to Dr. Rob Kominiarek of RenueHealth.com and Dr. Kenneth Wilgers for their comments and insights that contributed to the research and writing of this article.

What Is Cholesterol And What Does It Do?

Cholesterol is a steroid molecule which is found in every single cell in your body as a vital structural component of the cell’s membrane.

It is produced in your nerve tissue, liver, brain tissue and your bloodstream.

In addition to helping with digestion, cholesterol is also a very important precursor of several important hormones:

  • Vitamin D
  • Testosterone
  • Glucocotricoids (for generating glucose)
  • Estrogen
  • Bile salts (not a hormone but they do help break down fats found in food)

And as any diet fanatic would know, cholesterol is found in everyday foods such as cheese, meat, and egg yolks.

There are generally two types of cholesterol you need to monitor for your health.

Low-Density Lipoproteins (LDL) – The “Bad” Cholesterol

LDL cholesterol is perceived to be “bad” because too much leads to fatty buildup in your arteries, which harden over time and become plaques.

This leads to the arteries becoming narrower and therefore blood flow is restricted (i.e. atherosclerosis).

If this goes on for too long, you leave yourself at greater risk for cardiovascular diseases such as stroke, peripheral artery disease, chest pain (angina) and a potential heart attack.

High-Density Lipoproteins (HDL) – The “Good” Cholesterol

HDL cholesterol is known as the “good” cholesterol because it transports cholesterol from your body to your liver.

While HDL can carry LDL away from the arteries to be broken down, it only carries 25-33% of blood cholesterol.

From here, the takeaway conclusion seems simple:

Elevate your HDL levels while lowering your LDL levels and you’ll be just fine.

So where do statins come into the picture?

An Overview Of Statins: Why Are They Prescribed So Often?

Statins are prescription drugs that have two primary functions:

  1. Stop production of cholesterol by blocking HMG-CoA reductase (the enzyme in your liver that produces cholesterol.
  2. Reabsorb existing cholesterol that built up as plaques in your artery walls (in the form of LDL) so it can perform essential bodily functions.

There are numerous statins currently available in the United States market, such as the following:

  • Pitavastatin (Livalo)
  • Rosuvastatin (Crestor)
  • Simvastatin (Zocor)
  • Pravastatin (Pravachol)
  • Lovastatin (Altoprev)
  • Atorvastatin (Lipitor)

A quick look in the scientific literature will find several purported health benefits of statins.

They include reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease and neurocognitive disease, lowering inflammation, and much more.

To date, here’s what we know about statin usage across the country:

  • Roughly 35 million Americans are using statins
  • 17% of adults between 40-59 use statins, and that number jumps up to 48% for adults older than 75 years old.
  • Amongst adults aged 40-64, those who have health insurance are far more likely to be on a statin

Statins are commonly prescribed following a cardiovascular event such as a heart attack, and/or if lifestyle stages have failed to lower your cholesterol.

Should Doctors Be Attempting To Lower Cholesterol?

Here’s the problem we run into: There is no definitive cause-effect relationship established between cholesterol and heart disease, only an association.

An association which may not stand on solid scientific ground.

It turns out the connection is weak at best and more likely nonexistent, according to a comprehensive review of literature studies done in 2018:

“The hypothesis that high TC (total cholesterol) or LDL-C (low-density lipoprotein cholesterol) causes atherosclerosis and CVD has been shown to be false by numerous observations and experiments.”

“The fact that high LDL-C is beneficial in terms of overall lifespan has been ignored by researchers who support the lipid hypothesis.”

“That high LDL-C is the cause of CVD (cardiovascular disease) in FH (familial hypercholesterolemia) is questionable because LDL-C does not differ between untreated FH individuals with and without CVD.”

“Our search for falsifications of the cholesterol hypothesis confirms that it is unable to satisfy any of the Bradford Hill criteria for causality and that the conclusions of the authors of the three reviews are based on misleading statistics, exclusion of unsuccessful trials and by ignoring numerous contradictory observations.”

In simpler terms, artificially lowering cholesterol numbers is not effective for reducing cardiovascular risk in patients.

And it’s not so much that a high total cholesterol (TC) number is bad, but how high it is relative to HDL:

“A high TC to high-density lipoprotein (HDL) ratio is the best predictor of cardiovascular risk (hence this calculation, not LDL, is used in recognised cardiovascular risk calculators such as that from Framingham).

A high TC to HDL ratio is also a surrogate marker for insulin resistance (ie, chronically elevated serum insulin at the root of heart disease, type 2 diabetes and obesity).

…A high TC to HDL ratio drops rapidly with dietary changes such as replacing refined carbohydrates with healthy high fat foods.”

(Source)

The editorial I just quoted even sums up the issue IN ITS TITLE:

“Saturated fat does not clog the arteries: coronary heart disease is a chronic inflammatory condition, the risk of which can be effectively reduced from healthy lifestyle interventions”

Furthermore, higher HDL levels will decrease your chance of cardiovascular disease:

“Since the first discovery of an inverse correlation between high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C) levels and coronary heart disease in the 1950s the life cycle of HDL, its role in atherosclerosis and the therapeutic modification of HDL-C levels have been major research topics.

The Framingham study and others that followed could show that HDL-C is an independent cardiovascular risk factor and that the increase of HDL-C of only 10 mg/L leads to a risk reduction of 2–3%.”

The authors of the paper I just quoted made a very important observation near the end.

Specifically, in a state of chronic inflammation, HDL particles can actually fuel the inflammatory process.

So what can we conclude from all this?

It’s very simple…

When we make healthy lifestyle choices that reduce insulin resistance and systemic inflammation, undesirable cardiovascular events happen a lot less often.

Statins Don’t Actually Help You Live Longer

But the problems with statins do not stop at heart disease.

The guidelines for prescribing statins have changed so dramatically to the point where otherwise healthy individuals are now eligible for these drugs:

“When the US National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) revised its definition of “high cholesterol” by dramatically lowering the threshold, it meant millions more people would become eligible for statins overnight.

The decision was not based on any new scientific data but rather the increasingly popular notion that “lower is better”.

The move sparked a furore when it was revealed that eight out of nine members on the 2004 NCEP guideline committee had direct financial ties to statin manufacturers.

Then, in 2013, the American College of Cardiologists (ACC) and the American Heart Association (AHA) changed their guidelines to reflect a person’s “calculated risk”.

Again, it meant that millions more adults would be prescribed statins, most of whom were older people without heart disease and for whom the evidence for benefit was lacking.”

This makes perfect sense considering the financial benefits doctors get out of prescribing expensive brand-name statins:

“Researchers from Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School reviewed the records of about 1.6 million prescriptions for statins covered by Medicare Part D in Massachusetts in 2011.

Researchers found that physicians who didn’t receive industry money prescribed brand-name statins at a rate of almost 18 percent. Those who did take money prescribed brand-name drugs at a rate of almost 23 percent.

…Overall, researchers found that for every $1,000 spent on doctors, brand-name drug prescriptions increased 0.1 percent.”

Let’s suppose we put aside the lack of any real connection between statin use and lowered risk of heart disease.

What about survival?

Unfortunately, things don’t get any better.

Several studies such as this one (and this one) have concluded that statins are ineffective in reducing the risk of death in older individuals without any history of heart disease:

“In participants older than 74 years without type 2 diabetes, statin treatme
t was not associated with a reduction in atherosclerotic CVD or in all cause mortality, even when the incidence of atherosclerotic CVD was statistically significantly higher than the risk thresholds proposed for statin use”

The same can be said for middle-aged men:

“The Web site of the ALLHAT study says it best: “trials [primarily in middle-aged men] demonstrating a reduction in [coronary artery disease] from cholesterol lowering have not demonstrated a net reduction in all-cause mortality.”

Moreover, it appears as if lowering your intake of dietary cholesterol doesn’t do the trick either:

“Reducing cholesterol blood levels by reducing dietary saturated fats is commonly recommended, but an exhaustive review and meta-analysis of 72 dietary studies concluded that reduced consumption of saturated fat does not reduce cardiovascular mortality”

When a systematic literature review of all the studies are done, you’ll find a “surprisingly small average gain in overall survival”:

“Their literature review found that if you take a statin medication for two to six years to prevent your first heart attack—this is called primary prevention—your death will be postponed by an average of three days and five hours.

If you take a statin for two to six years after you have had a heart attack—this is called secondary prevention—your death will be postponed for just over four days.”

And what about the women?

When statins are used for primary prevention (women with no history of heart disease) or secondary prevention (women with pre-existing heart disease), no changes in the death rate are observed.

I’m not quite done yet…

A major clinical trial known as PROSPER (Pravastatin in elderly individuals at risk of vascular disease) examined seniors ages 70-82 who had a history of heart disease or possessed risk factors for it.

The study DID find a lower incidence of heart disease, but at a cost.

This decrease was almost entirely negated by a corresponding increase in cancer cell deaths – 25% more frequent in the group taking pravastatin!

As a result, overall mortality between the pravastatin and placebo groups after 3.2 years were nearly identical.

This is troubling when you consider how rapidly the rate of heart disease rises in men as they age.

According to the American Heart Association:

  • 70.2% of men ages 60-79 have 1 or more types of cardiovascular disease
  • This number jumps up to 83% for men who are 80 years of age or older
  • For men ages 35-44, the annual rate of first-time cardiovascular events is 3 per 1000. It jumps to 74 per 1000 in men ages 85-94.

With all of the overwhelming evidence available, one might ask themselves how statins developed a stellar reputation in the first place.

How Are Statin Clinical Trials Manipulated To Present False Conclusions?

The answer as to why statins show positive results in trials involving overall survival are simple: Statistical deception.

Statins are certainly effective for reducing cholesterol levels, but they clearly do not substantially improve cardiovascular outcomes.

So how does Big Pharma deceptively create the appearance that lowering cholesterol leads to a lower incidence of heart disease?

Through a statistical calculation called “Relative risk reduction” (RRR).

The best way to show you how this is done is through an example scenario used in a groundbreaking 2015 review debunking several clinical trials involving statin use.

(BTW…credit goes entirely to the authors of the paper. I’m just simplifying what they’re saying to make it easier to understand).

Suppose you have a 5-year clinical trial which involves 2000 middle-aged men of good health.

Your main outcome is to determine if prescribing statins will prevent heart disease.

You give 1000 of the men a placebo, and a statin to the other 1000.

And let’s say we come up with the following results:

  • % of placebo patients suffering from heart attack: 2%
  • % of pravastatin patients suffering from heart attack: 1%

This is not a stretch, as it is typical for 2% of these men to experience a nonfatal myocardial infarction (MI) over 5 years.

1% of men in the statin group experienced a MI, while 2% of men in the placebo group had a MI.

To determine the RRR, we would divide the % of pravastatin patients by the % of placebo patients:

1% ÷ 2% = 0.5

This would represent a 50% risk reduction by the drug in the treated group.

“Look! The statins reduced the incidence of heart disease by 50%!”

Of course that’s how they would say it – nobody in their right mind would be impressed by a 1% point improvement.

But there are two indicators of clinical usefulness which prove to be superior for evaluating the effectiveness of the statin in question.

The first indicator is the “Absolute risk reduction” (ARR), which is the “absolute” risk difference in event rate between a treatment group and the control group.

You calculate it by subtracting the % of placebo patients from the % of pravastatin patients.

In this case, 2% – 1% = 1%.

This means only 1% of the patients benefit by taking the statin.

The second indicator is the “Number needed to treat” (NNT), which tells us the number of patients you need to treat with a medication in order to achieve the desired income.

We calculate the NNT by taking the inverse of the ARR:

1 ÷ 0.01 = 100.

The higher the NNT, the more ineffective the drug is.

If the NNT for preventing a heart attack is 100, it means 100 patients must be treated to prevent ONE patient from having a heart attack.

The authors say it best:

“Put another way, the chance of not suffering from an MI during the 5-year period without treatment was 98% and by taking a statin drug every day it increased by 1 percentage point to 99%.”

I strongly urge you to read the review as it debunks several clinical trials and shows you how the RRR is used in action.

In addition, investigative journalist Dr. Maryanne Demasi’s presentation on the shocking amount of statin disinformation is a MUST-SEE!

Harmful Side Effects Of Statins

I haven’t even talked about the side effects of statins yet, but we already know they are ineffective for improving survival or reducing heart disease.

Putting aside the numerous drugs statins negatively interact with, there are several harmful side effects you should know about:

I could go on forever with this list, but I believe the message is clear.

In the majority of cases, statins are not measurably improving your health.

In the worst of cases, you may be destroying your health with statins.

When Are Statins Acceptable Medical Interventions?

It is quite rare for someone to truly have a clinical need for statins.

You’re talking about very specific population groups in the 40-75 age range who are severely inflamed, such as the following:

  • Their 10-year risk of cardiovascular disease exceeds 7.5%
  • LDL readings are greater than 190 mg/dL
  • Diabetics
  • Individuals with plaque-related diseases like heart disease and stroke.

I would also like to add that Dr. Mark Gordon has successfully used statins in patients with TBI (traumatic brain injury) due to their mild anti-inflammatory effect.

As a side note, I strongly recommend you supplement with CoQ-10 if you are going to take statins.

I explain precisely why in The TOT Bible:

“Statins have been found to significantly lower Co-Q10 levels, however, so it is essential for statin users to supplement with Co-Q10 to help restore depleted levels.

Ubiquinol Kaneka QH Coenzyme Q-10 (CoQ-10) is a vitamin- like substance found throughout the body, especially in the heart, liver, kidney, and pancreas.

Coenzyme Q10 may protect against many age-related disorders including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and various neurological disorders.

Taking 200-300 mg a day has been clinically proven to offer powerful disease-resistant benefits.”

The goal should ALWAYS be to gradually titrate off of them once lifestyle interventions are fully in place.

Natural Lifestyle Alternatives To Taking Statins

Fortunately for you, several viable alternatives exist to taking statins.

Most of these can be done for free!

Aspirin

According to a study in the British Medical Journal, aspirin is equally as effective as statins for treating heart disease in people with pre-existing heart disease.

It’s also far safer, with fewer side effects and risks.

And it’s 20 times cheaper!

Diet and Exercise

Who would possibly think the dietary recommendations given to us by health authorities would lead us towards heart disease and eventual death?

Well, apparently they do:

The long-established dietary recommendations have created epidemics of obesity and diabetes”

“Foods loaded with sugars and simple carbohydrates, or processed with omega-6 oils for long shelf life have been the mainstay of the American diet for six decades. These foods have been slowly poisoning everyone.”

“Simply, it is the foods that are baked or soaked in soybean oil and ones that are processed for long shelf-life that are creating an extreme imbalance of omega-6 and omega-3 fats in people’s bodies.

Lundell estimates the ratio of imbalance “ranges from 15:1 to as high as 30:1 in favor of omega-6.” A healthy ratio is closer to 3:1”

Dr. Alex Vasquez has also commented on omega-3 fatty acids being a far better choice for reducing the risk of cardiovascular death.

Clean eating and intelligent training should always be the first option before statins are considered.

Here are some other related lifestyle factors you should be aware of:

  • Smoking
  • Being overweight/obese
  • Lack of exercise
  • High stress levels and inability to manage emotions
  • Pre-existing medical conditions and medications

Regular Blood Work

By no
, you know why insulin resistance and systemic inflammation are the root cause of cardiovascular disease.

Therefore, it is imperative to get regular blood work done so you know exactly what’s going on.

Here is what you should evaluate in the context of inflammation and cholesterol:

  • HDL – higher than 70 mg/dL for near zero cardiovascular risk
  • LDL – lower than 100 mg/dL
  • high-sensitivity CRP (hsCRP) – below 3 mg/dL (indicator of plaque risk)
  • Sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) – between 10-57 nmol/L for men, 18-144 nmol/L for non pregnant females (first indicator of insulin resistance)
  • Triglycerides – Lower than 150 mg/dL

You’ll notice I didn’t list total cholesterol here – many high-level doctors have advised me that it is ultimately a worthless test.

The total cholesterol reading takes HDL, LDL and triglycerides all into account.

While total cholesterol levels under 200 mg/DL are typically considered to be good, you are not seeing the entire picture.

You could have a total cholesterol of over 300 and yet have an astronomically high HDL reading.

If a physician put you on a statin in this situation, you would only lower your HDL levels and increase the risk of heart disease.

The same goes for treating high triglyceride levels, as that’s usually a problem with insulin resistance which can be treated with Metformin and extended periods of fasting.

Conclusion: Does Cholesterol REALLY Matter?!

The bottom line is this: High cholesterol is not a “cause” of anything.

It is the END RESULT of hereditary factors and consistently poor lifestyle choices – which are the two primary indicators of problems.

This is why it is imperative to focus primarily on lifestyle changes, as it will fix the real problem and lead to the greatest benefit.

If you want to learn more about how statins are damaging our health, I highly recommend reading this article, which details the cover-up of statin research data.

And while I personally haven’t read this book, A Statin Nation appears to be a worthwhile read.

Sending you lots of love and light!

Changing the Paradigm Shift of Hormone Optimization – Part 2 – The Tier 1 Mission w/Dr Keith Nichols & Dr Scott Howell with Dr Keith Nichols & Dr Scott Howell

There are many hurdles and roadblocks getting in the way of quality optimization reaching the patients who need it.

How is a lack of physician awareness contributing to this issue?

What are the mechanisms that interfere with androgen metabolism and distribution in the body?

On Part 2 of this episode, Dr. Keith Nichols and Dr. Scott Howell from Tier 1 Health and Wellness continue on the work they are doing to redefine testosterone optimization and how it benefits patients.

If you’re not raising your testosterone levels to exert a response you won’t get a response. -Dr. Scott Howell

In part 2 of the episode, Dr. Keith Nichols shared on the three key metrics that determine the success of testosterone optimization.

We also talked about the importance of focusing on a full picture of wellness when it comes to dealing with testosterone optimization.

We also discussed:

  • Why misinformation and misrepresentation of credentials is so bad for optimization
  • The importance of physicians integrating evidence into their practice
  • Why optimization patients need to have realistic expectations

Three Takeaways

Men focus on the wrong information when it comes to testosterone.

They tend to put all their focus on their appearance and libido, and miss all the other points.

There’s no such thing as 'high estrogen symptoms', or 'estrogen dominance', there’s only insulin resistance caused by inflammation (and vice versa).

The 3 critical steps of hormone optimization are:

  1. getting the hormone in a sufficient amount to exert a response
  2. giving it time(patience is critical)
  3. noticeable improvement in symptoms in relation to the hormone’s deficiency.

How To (Actually) Understand The Coronavirus’ TRUE Global Impact

Last week I talked about how to mentally and physically prepare yourself for the coronavirus.

While world-leading researchers are still deducing its exact nature, we have a solid grasp on how it is transmitted.

We also know how the coronavirus will impact human health – starting from when you catch it to when it proves fatal.

But what’s missing in this discussion is a “bird’s eye view” of the coronavirus’ impact on the world.

If you read anything from mainstream media, it’s easy to see why society is in a perpetual state of panic and fear.

And as you already know, FEAR does not do a population well:

“To prove that they’re in control of the situation, governments are shutting off entire communities, school systems and trade routes.

With these measures they are above all spreading even more panic among the population and also perhaps standing in the way of solutions, because the pharmaceutical industry, for example, needs international trade to survive.”

Before we can begin to understand the global impact of coronavirus, we must take a few steps back and familiarize ourselves with a few concepts…

What Does Exponential Growth Really Look Like?

Physicist Al Bartlett is infamous for saying “The greatest shortcoming of the human race is the ability to understand the exponential function”.

In other words, humans are capable of thinking in linear terms but cannot fully comprehend exponential trends.

Unlike linear growth, exponential growth appears to be moving much slower until it is already too late.

The best way to demonstrate this principle in growth is through the well-known “lily pad” story.

It goes like this…

Imagine you have an empty pond, and you put in a single lily pad that grows exponentially.

This means the pond will have 2 lily pads after 1 month, 4 lily pads after 2 months, and so on.

You are told that if the lily pad continues to grow exponentially, the entire pond will be covered in 36 months.

Without pulling out a calculator or thinking for more than 5 seconds, can you tell me when the pond will be HALF full?

Think of your response and hold it tightly in your mind as you continue reading (NO CHEATING!).

At Month 30, the pond will be 1/64 full.

The instinctive response would be 18 months – right at the halfway point.

WRONG! The pond is half-filled at exactly 35 months.

This means the following and final month – Month #36 – will see the pond completely filled because the lily pad population doubles yet again.

One comment I read on the Internet summarizes the outcome of this example perfectly:

“…after waiting until [Month 35] you need to kill off half of the pond’s lily pads every day for eternity just to avoid losing the entire pond. This is the lesson of exponential growth.”

How does this relate to the coronavirus?

Many scientists are already convinced the number of coronavirus cases is presently growing at an exponential rate:

“Some scientists have estimated that the number of cases doubles about every seven days.

If you play that logic out, it is easy enough to see how people might be complacent at first, then in a few months there is a public health crisis.”

And the people who choose to remain ignorant of the coronavirus’ rapid spread can be summarized in two sentences:

“Humans (including economists) DO understand the exponential function.

The problem is they don’t think it applies to them.”

How Easy Is It To Spread The Coronavirus Around?

In order to answer this question, let’s take a few factors into consideration.

First, we already know the coronavirus is highly transmissible because it is likely contagious at a distance of two meters.

Put in easier terms to understand, it’s around 3 times your arm’s length.

Second, the coronavirus’ average fatality rate is currently 2.3% yet this changes significantly depending on which age group you are in:

(Source)

(And for the record, males have a fatality rate of 2.8% compared to 1.7% for females)

Third, we need to grasp just how fast the coronavirus is capable of spreading.

This informative graph from analytical research firm Bianco Research demonstrates the difference between its projection progression and the number of reported infections:

(Source)

If we take the graph above at face value, this would mean roughly 138 million people were infected by February 20 (and who knows where that number is now).

Is this level of growth possible?

Absolutely – as I mentioned in last week’s blog, many people are in Stage 1 or Stage 2 of the coronavirus.

  • Stage 1 = “flu-like” symptoms (2-4 days after exposure)
  • Stage 2 = clinical latency, where the viral infection is progressing without the individual experiencing any symptoms (14-24 days after Stage 1)

And in case you’re wondering what “R0” meant on the graph I just showed you:

“It’s a mathematical term that indicates how contagious an infectious disease is. It’s also referred to as the reproduction number.

…R0 tells you the average number of people who will catch a disease from one contagious person.

…If a disease has an R0 of 18, a person who has the disease will transmit it to an average of 18 other people, as long as no one has been vaccinated against it or is already immune to it in their community.”

So when R0 is greater than 1, more than one new infection can be caused from the existing infection.

The graph from Bianco Research indicated an R0 value of 2.5.

This number varies wildly depending on the rate of reporting the disease:

“The early outbreak data largely follows the exponential growth.

We estimated that the mean R0 ranges from 2.24 to 3.58 associated with 8-fold to 2-fold increase in the reporting rate.

We demonstrated that changes in reporting rate substantially affect estimates of R0.”

Let’s summarize what we have up until now…

We have a disease which has a very long infectious period.

We have unknowingly infected people coming into contact with other people.

And we know the coronavirus travels through the air.

Sounds like the coronavirus is easily being spread around at an exponential rate!

(BTW – this live calculator gives you real-time updates on the numbers of cases and deaths related to the coronavirus)

Is The Coronavirus REALLY Like The Flu?!

Do NOT believe anyone who attempts to tell you the coronavirus is just like the seasonal flu.

Take a look at this graph from the CDC’s “Interim Pre-Pandemic Planning Guidance Document”:

If we take the coronavirus at face value (and we already know there’s MANY more cases going unreported)…

…its projected mortality matches what was seen in The Great Spanish Flu Pandemic of 1918.

Even the circumstances match up perfectly:

  • Lack of media transparency about the disease’s true nature
  • Powerful people in denial who eventually get sick
  • The useless attempts to wear masks in an effort to avoid infection

But here’s the really interesting part:

The 1918 pandemic was especially lethal for young adults in the 20-40 age range.

If you recall the earlier infographic showing fatality across age groups, the coronavirus is far more lethal to the elderly.

It’s those ages 60 and above (specifically those who are highly inflamed and/or immune compromised) who have a higher risk of lethal health outcomes.

The coronavirus article I wrote last week highlighted the populations who are most at risk for being infected, so you likely knew this already.

Yet I didn’t address how all age groups are secretly at risk, and you’re about to see why.

How Does The Coronavirus Impact Healthcare Services?

Think about it:

What happens when our hospitals and healthcare clinics are overwhelmed?

We lose access to medical care due to the high volume of patients, which makes everyday medical services and interventions unavailable.

When this happens, the overall mortality rate is likely to shoot way up.

Let’s run the numbers and make a few estimates to understand how the coronavirus could potentially shut down healthcare services.

If we go with the CDC’s “pre-pandemic” model, we can expect roughly 1.8 million deaths associated with coronavirus if it continues spreading at its current rate.

And at any given time, let’s assume there are 260,000 acute care / intensive care unit (ICU) beds available in the United States at any given time.

(The real number is around ~650,000, but we will continue with our estimates for this example)

Assuming a 30% infection rate based on CDC data and a 20% hospitalization rate for high-risk groups (i.e. those over 65 years old), you’d need around 3.1 MILLION beds.

This would be 12x the number of actual beds available, and 6x if you are assuming ~650,000 beds available at any time.

Credit to Nick Andrews for this table

As you can see, the rate of high-risk hospitalization is the key factor here.

At our current rate we will end up massively overwhelming the available medical resources.

This means your average Joe will suffer greatly from the scarcity of medicine and lack of medical resources they have access to.

And to top it all o
f, this doesn’t even factor in the economic disruption!

Why The Coronavirus Is More Of A Pandemic Than You Think

In summation, we have a disease which poses a health risk for the entire American population (and the world population at large).

The coronavirus is a low-to-moderate risk for 70% of American citizens, and high risk for the remaining 30%.

If we’re strictly following the CDC guidelines, the coronavirus can be accurately categorized as a Category 4 or 5 pandemic:

(Source)

And while the CDC plan assumes no re-infection, this is certainly not the case with the coronavirus.

“People who have gotten the new coronavirus and recovered can get it again in the future, health authorities say — the body does not become immune after infection”

“For those patients who have been cured, there is a likelihood of a relapse…The antibody will be generated; however, in certain individuals, the antibody cannot last that long.”

But with all of this said, please note this article made several assumptions.

I am only giving you a very broad view of what’s going on, rather than specific forecasts.

We can only work with the case data made publicly available, but cases are under-reported globally for several reasons:

So what should you do?

I’m going to quote the end of last week’s article, as I believe the message still stands:

“Awareness and preparation is essential – there’s a clear difference between a complete understanding of what’s happening, and sticking your head in the sand.”

“But don’t buy into the paranoia-inducing emotions that mainstream media is shoving down your throat through clickbait articles and over-exaggerated fears.”

“Face this virus without fear and in high vibration, knowing your greatest gift is experiencing the contrast while enjoying the ride in physical form.”

I ask you to focus on remaining free of fear and worry.

Elevating your vibration through conscious words, focused thoughts and massive intentional action will keep you grounded and in a state of peace no matter what obstacles are placed in front of you.

Changing the Paradigm Shift of Hormone Optimization – Part 1 with Dr Keith Nichols & Dr Scott Howell

There are many hurdles and roadblocks getting in the way of quality optimization reaching the patients who need it.

How is a lack of physician awareness contributing to this issue?

What are the mechanisms that interfere with androgen metabolism and distribution in the body?

On this episode, Dr. Keith Nichols and Dr. Scott Howell from Tier 1 Health and Wellness, share on the work they are doing to redefine testosterone optimization and how it benefits patients.

We focus on optimization, and we want individuals to have a health based paradigm, not a chemical-based living paradigm. -Dr. Scott Howell

At the start of the show, Keith and Scott shared a background on how they got started in the optimization space, and reasons for the lack of physician awareness when it comes to hormone optimization.

Next, we discussed the importance of statistical literacy in physicians and why we need to stop being a lab-centric society.

We also discussed:

  • Why misinformation and misrepresentation of credentials is so bad for optimization
  • The importance of physicians integrating evidence into their practice
  • Why optimization patients need to have realistic expectations at the start of therapy

Three Takeaways

When it comes to testosterone optimization, you have to outcompete the receptors.

There’s no limiting dose of testosterone to get a man to feel better.

What Tier 1 defines as optimal:

  • Feel your best
  • Function your best
  • Perform your best
  • At Your Healthiest

30-40% of physicians don’t have statistical literacy, which is a huge problem.

The principles of harm reduction: education, guidance, genetic testing, risk mapping and auxiliary drugs.

The Essential Coronavirus (COVID-19) Survival Guide For 2020 And Beyond

The coronavirus is a virus unlike anything the global health community has ever seen.

ZeroHedge recently predicted four outcomes of the coronavirus – Bad, Worse, Ugly, Unthinkable:

“In the ‘Bad’ scenario the virus outbreak does not last far beyond Q1. China’s GDP growth for 2020 could drop to below 5%, with production taking the biggest hit and a catch up in Q3 and Q4. This is our base case scenario, although with the recent surge in mind, the second scenario is becoming increasingly likely

In the ‘Worse’ scenario, the virus outbreak lasts beyond Q1. In that case China’s GDP growth could end up below 4% in 2020

In the Ugly scenario, the virus spreads beyond China, and spreads to Asia as well as developed economies. Its effects will likely resemble the Global Financial Crisis of 2008/2009 more than the SARS outbreak in 2003

The Unthinkable scenario is a far left tail scenario, in which the virus mutates and becomes a truly global pandemic”

And while we are unaware of the REAL numbers (cases, deaths, etc.), there is a great deal of suspicion regarding the numbers coming out of China:

“Health experts question the timeliness and accuracy of China’s official data, saying the testing system captured only a fraction of the cases in China’s hospitals, particularly those that are poorly run.

Neil Ferguson, a professor of epidemiology at Imperial College London, said only the most severe infections were being diagnosed and as few as 10 per cent of cases were being properly detected, in a video released by the university.

In Wuhan, the official figures for confirmed cases could capture as few as 1 in 19 infections, according to a paper published by Prof Ferguson.”

Emerging research continues to reveal that the coronavirus is unlike anything we’ve ever seen before:

“…new research from scientists in China and Europe reveal that the disease happens to have an ‘HIV-like mutation’ which allows it to bind with human cells up to 1,000 times stronger than the Sars virus”

“This uncanny similarity of novel inserts in the 2019- nCoV spike protein to HIV-1 gp120 and Gag is unlikely to be fortuitous in nature,” meaning – it was unlikely to have occurred naturally.”

Is the coronavirus a deliberately engineered bioweapon?

In my highly informed opinion (I have really smart and influential friends, YO), YES without question it is.

But my opinion and answer is irrelevant because I’m not here to promote fear and panic.

This article is written with the sole purpose of helping you get your mind, body and soul right in anticipation of WHAT IS very likely to come.

And staying ‘physically alive’ is what actually matters to most of the population.

You need to know exactly how the coronavirus epidemic affects you if you want to protect yourself and those you care about.

The time to act is NOW!

What Is The Coronavirus (COVID-19) And How Does It Affect You?

Before we get started, it’s important to make a clear distinction:

  • COVID-19 is the disease. The VIRUS that causes it is SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2)
  • NCOV-19 and COVID-19 are used interchangeably – they are generally the same thing.

Here’s a précis of COVID-19, according to the Public Library of Science:

“The “body” of COVID-19 is basically a genome enveloped in glycoproteins, with a smear of fat and bearing the crown of spikes that inspired the name “coronavirus.”

The genome is a single strand of RNA that is termed “positive-sense.” That means that the infected cell treats the viral genome as if were it’s own messenger RNA (mRNA), translating it into proteins.

A “negative-sense” RNA virus requires more manipulation; a host enzyme must make a positive-sense copy.

Once ensconced in a human cell, a half dozen or more viral mRNAs are peeled off. The first, representing about two-thirds of the viral genome, encodes 16 protein “tools” that viruses require to replicate.

Making this toolkit is a little like downloading an installer for new software.

Here’s what this means in simpler terms…

The coronavirus gets into your body and comes well-equipped with numerous “tools” to help the virus spread.

This includes a “cloaking” device to hide itself from the immune system and an assembly line to build and release more virus particles. (Hmmm, seems like the perfect engineered bioweapon to me).

We now know that SARS-CoV-2 binds to receptors in the stomach, intestines, kidney and heart known as ACE2 (angiotensin-converting enzyme 2).

The ACE2 enzyme raises your blood pressure by constricting your blood vessels, all through converting the hormone angiotensin I into angiotensin II.

When SARS-CoV-2 binds to these receptors, organ damage follows.

As of February 25, over 80,000 cases of the coronavirus have been identified around the world:

“According to the latest epidemiological data on Feb. 25, the total number of COVID-19 cases has reached 80,407 globally, and 2,708 people have died from the virus, which puts the mortality rate at nearly 3.4%.

With recent localized flare ups in Italy (322 cases), Iran (95 cases), and South Korea (977 cases), the total number of affected countries or territories has reached 41.”

The Coronavirus Disease Progression: Stage 0

(credit to Nick Andrews for creating this graph)

Refer to the above diagram for all 3 stages, as it will walk you through how the coronavirus infects you from start to finish.

So how is the coronavirus transmitted?

Briefly, COVID-19 first develops in animals and then it develops in humans:

“Coronaviruses are zoonotic. This means they first develop in animals before developing in humans.

For the virus to pass from animal to humans, a person has to come into close contact with an animal that carries the infection.

Once the virus develops in people, coronaviruses can be spread from person to person through respiratory droplets. This is a technical name for the wet stuff that moves through the air when you cough or sneeze.

The viral material hangs out in these droplets and can be breathed into the respiratory tract (your windpipe and lungs), where the virus can then lead to an infection.”

Therefore, wearing surgical masks and buying them in bulk will NOT protect you.

Those marks were not designed with the intention of preventing germs from other people infecting you.

It’s the exact opposite: They were built to stop YOU from infecting people with your germs.

Due to the airborne nature of the coronavirus (even in aerosol droplets), it is extremely easy to transmit this virus from one human to another.

If you’re going to wear a mask, do your best to get your hands on N95 respirators:

“When worn correctly, N95 respirators block out at least 95% of small airborne particles. So the respirators should be able to filter out the droplets that the coronavirus is thought to travel in (The coronavirus itself measures between .05 and 0.2 microns in diameter…)”

Plus, there is a very good chance you won’t be able to buy surgical masks at your local store.

As early as the first few weeks of January, many of my closest friends were shocked to find large cities and stores completely sold out of surgical masks.

The Coronavirus Disease Progression: Stage 1

Roughly 2-4 days after you are exposed, the coronavirus manifests in the form of an acute viral infection.

Here are some of the coronavirus symptoms typically experienced:

  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Sore throat
  • Loss of appetite
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Muscle aches

As you can see, it would be near impossible to distinguish these symptoms from a typical respiratory infection (flu, the “common cold”) or a gastrointestinal infection.

So when you see those videos of citizens in China coughing and sneezing go viral, this is Stage 1 in effect.

Here’s where things seemingly start to get grim:

Without treatment, these symptoms disappear within a week or so.

The infected person would shrug them off as a mere cold without giving a second thought to getting tested.

Of course, most western medical systems would be completely overwhelmed overnight if everyone went to get tested!

The Coronavirus Disease Progression: Stage 2

Over the next 14-24 days (depending on age and gender), the infected person is in a stage of clinical latency.

No symptoms are experienced, yet the viral infection progresses at a very low speed.

The coronavirus accumulates in your lung tissue and starts to replicate itself.

With more particles of the coronavirus created, they are shed into the air.

This is why you’ll see medical articles and news reports about the coronavirus being “invisible”.

Furthermore, the virus’ lack of activity means you will pass all control tests typically done in a hospital.

The ONLY way to have a chance of diagnosing the coronavirus at this stage is either through a chest CT/X-ray or a PCR test.

For this reason alone, international authorities are issuing travel bans under the guide that it’s not a great idea to let symptom-free carriers travel and enter other countries (although this will not outright stop it from spreading).

The Coronavirus Disease Progression: Stage 3

This is where things start to get really nasty with the coronavirus.

COVID-19 will severely damage the lungs and lead to a cytokine storm (overproduction of the immune cell’s activating compounds) usually seen in people who are chronically inflamed.

Major lung infections start taking place, and this eventually leads to systemic sepsis due to the inflammation spilling into your body’s circulation:

“Sepsis is a potentially life-threatening condition caused by the body’s response to an infection.

The body normally releases chemicals into the bloodstream to fight an infection.

Sepsis occurs when the body’s response to these chemicals is out of balance, triggering changes that can damage multiple organ systems.

If sepsis progresses to septic shock, blood pressure drops dramatically. This may lead to death.”

So when you see video’s of people on Twitter randomly “dropping” out of nowhere, it’s because of their blood pressure falling to dangerous levels.

With this being said, there are two “kinds” of Stage 3 you need to be concerned about.

Coronavirus, Stage 3: Mild

Mild Stage 3 encompasses roughly 85% of patients at this stage.

The coronavirus stays in the lung tissue at a low level, but it is still highly contagious at this point.

Even amongst patients who recover, they are left with residual organ damage in the lungs, GI tract, cardiovascular system and the male testes.

Symptoms in mild stage 3 include:

  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Sore throat
  • Night sweats
  • Loss of appetite
  • Swollen lymph nodes

Coronavirus, Stage 3: Severe

Severe Stage 3 makes up the other 15%, where patients are most likely to die or remain handicapped for life (i.e. measures such as oxygen support are needed).

Symptoms in severe stage 3 include:

  • Pneumonia (Viral and Bacterial)
  • Pulmonary Embolism
  • Lung Fibrosis
  • Lung Thrombosis
  • Heart Attack (from blood clot)
  • Stroke (from blood clot)
  • Multisystem-Organ Failure

And in case you think the outbreak of coronavirus matches that of other historical viral outbreaks, think again:

(Source)

In summation, what you have is a runaway inflammatory response causing potential biological system failures which potentially proves to be fatal.

And now you know why quarantines lasting 30 days are virtually useless.

Anything else (like the 14-day quarantine in Hubei) is even worse because it provides false security in which people will be unknowingly spreading the coronavirus around.

Your BEST bet at detecting the coronavirus as soon as possible would be within the first 2-5 days of Stage 0 (failing that, Stage 1 and Stage 3).

Who Is Most At Risk For Being Infected With The Coronavirus?

Despite the high mortality risk of the coronavirus (inside stage 3), healthy individuals in the 18-50 age group seen to have minimal risk for a fatal coronavirus-induced outcome.

However, people with a compromised immune system who are already sick due to metabolic disease or other lifestyle illnesses are not so lucky.

(Source)

If you look at the above picture, you will see which populations are most at risk for developing the coronavirus.

Here are some other groups who are at higher risk for contracting the coronavirus:

  • Babies less than 1 year old
  • Individuals older than 40, and especially those above 60(specifically those already immune compromised or full of inflammation).
  • Males have a higher risk than females
  • Anyone frequently exposed to respiratory “irritants” such as air pollution and smoking.

My good friend Clif High recently wrote to me and shared the distribution of people who are infected with the coronavirus:

36% of patients are mildly to severely infected, most of them are ill for weeks BUT they don’t require hospitalization

18% go into serious complications and require advanced medical treatment to avoid certain death. They average 3 weeks in the hospital (NO “in and out”), which is why the ‘sick care’ medical system may be doomed to collapse.

12% have recovered so far, but many are now dying of a second infection or a re-emergence of the initial disease.

Of the individuals who do recover, half of them will have residual damage to the lungs, heart, stomach or testicles.

Now that you know everything about the coronavirus and how it works, it’s time to get yourself ready!

The MUST-HAVE Coronavirus Prep List For Guaranteed Survival

If you have any pharmaceutical needs or medical supplies essential for your day-to-day life, make sure you have at least 3-6 months worth on hand:

“The coronavirus outbreak has exposed the United States’ dangerous dependence on China for pharmaceutical and medical supplies, including an estimated 97 percent of all antibiotics and 80 percent of the active pharmaceutical ingredients needed to produce drugs in the United States.”

Mike Cernovich wrote a really comprehensive article about preparing for the coronavirus, but here are the main takeaway points:

Essential

  • 100 pounds of dry rice for every 6 people
  • 20 pound bag of dried lentil
  • 20 pound bag of dry oats
  • 50 gallons of water
  • Whey protein powder
  • Canned tuna
  • Spices for cooking
  • Coconut oil
  • Mobile/charging batteries for electronic devices
  • Propane Grill

Nice-To-Haves

  • High-lumens pen flashlight to ward off attackers
  • Electric generator

Clif High also developed his own “survival list” which contains some essential items:

  • Vitamins
  • Masks
  • Bleach
  • Gloves
  • Duct Tape
  • Thermometers
  • Blood pressure wrist units
  • Batteries
  • Medical tape for skin
  • First aid supplies
  • Books

I strongly recommend you watch his informative YouTube video explaining how quickly the “higher powers” knew about the coronavirus before it become a global hot topic:

Cliff has recently gotten much more serious about the end game potential of this virus and subsequently made this video discussing the need for biological contamination readiness.

Highly recommend watching this video as his intel is second to none and he is prepared for anything.

My Recommended Supplement Stack: The Best Defense Protocol For Protection Against Coronavirus

It goes without saying that those who are heavily inflamed are not doing themselves any favors, so make sure you know your inflammatory markers ASAP.

Maintaining as minimal of an inflammatory physical state as possible will help your body respond to a coronavirus infection without possibly experiencing the cytokine storm I mentioned earlier.

A very recent paper outlined some useful nutraceuticals to have on deck for fighting the infection:

Some early evidence also indicates that very high doses of Vitamin C (40,000-50,000 mg per day) may be helpful:

“While they are looking for what would be fabulously profitable approaches, we have with vitamin C an existing, plausible, clinically demonstrated method to treat what coronavirus patients die from: severe acute respiratory syndrome, or pneumonia.”

Keep in mind that taking more than 10,000 mg of Vitamin C per day leads to the vitamin acting as a laxative, so this should only be followed for a short period of time.

There are even reports which indicate the use of anti-retroviral drugs such as Lopinavair and Itonavir to treat coronavirus by blocking HIV’s ability to reproduce (via binding to healthy cells).

But I want to chime in with my own specific supplement stack for optimizing the body and immune system to protect against an initial infection.

These supplements will also minimize the effects in case you do get infected with the coronavirus.

Here they are…

  • Fish oil: 1-1.5 grams per day
  • Curcumin: 1000 mg per day (or more)
  • Ginger: 1600 mg per day
  • Metformin: 500-1000 mg per day for men, 250-500 mg per day for women
  • Chaga Mushroom Capsules: 500-1000 mg per day (give SMALL amounts to children and slowly increase the dose)
  • Liposomal Vitamin C: 30 mg PER kilogram of bodyweight each day (go here to learn more about high-dose Vitamin C for children)
  • Vitamin D: 5000-8000 IU’s per day
  • C60: At least one teaspoon per day
  • Nebulized GHK-Cu: 2-4 pumps per day
  • Probiotics: See label for daily dosage

For the more advanced users who want to take care of potential organ damage, I highly recommend the histamine-suppressing peptides BPC-157 and TB-500, both during and after infection.

Please note that you will get the most out of these vitamins and supplements if your body has sufficient levels of key vitamins (Vitamins A, B, C, D, E and K to be exact).

So if you’re missing out on vital vitamins such as Vitamin B6 and Vitamin B12, get your hands on them before supplies runs out!

The Mental Mindset Shift You MUST Make To Survive The Coronavirus

Even though I quoted several articles to paint a picture of what’s really going on with the coronavirus, it is critical to avoid a fear-based mindset of scarcity.

As the first law of quantum physics clearly states, you get what you choose to focus on.

Awareness and preparation is essential – there’s a clear difference between a complete understanding of what’s happening, and sticking your head in the sand.

Follow all of the advice in this article: Buy the supplements and vitamins, get your supplies immediately, and stay up to date on upcoming developments.

Cliff High’s Youtube Channel is one I recommend following for the most up to date preparation and readiness instruction.

But don’t buy into the paranoia-inducing emotions that mainstream media is shoving down your throat through clickbait articles and over-exaggerated fears.

One of the most important things you can do to make yourself immune is to choose to consciously elevate your vibration, while encouraging your loved ones to do the same!

If you are vibrating at a level of consciousness of 450 or higher (COHERENCE), your cells and bio systems will be in resonance.

You are incapable of being infected or affected by a dissonant virus, pathogen, microbial invader or any disease whose wave particles have a rate of spin that is INCOHERENT.

This is not woo-woo – this is ancient metaphysics and quantum mechanical laws of the universe.

I would like to make one final point.

Human Beings are resilient.

We have made it through plagues, pestilence, nuclear bombs, extinction level events and we will also make it thru Covid-19.

To fear death however is to be ignorant of the known laws of the quantum.

You at base essence are nothing more than whirring electrons aka cosmic phire.

You as a being in spirit form are infinite and ever expanding.

Death of the physical body is nothing more than a change of focus, an embracing of a new path and journey.

One that we will all surely take.

Face this virus without fear and in high vibration, knowing your greatest gift is experiencing the contrast while enjoying the ride in physical form.

I send each of you tremendous love and light and I ask source creator to place a divine energetic shield of light and protection around you as we collectively face the future together.

The Path of High Enlightenment & Multidimensional Existence w/Wade Lightheart

Physical optimization makes a bigger impact when it moves along with spiritual optimization.

How does dealing with a less than optimal microbiome, and experiencing digestive stress impact our overall optimization?

Where is humanity in the spiritual enlightenment journey?

What were the most transformative experiences in our guest’s life that changed his spiritual trajectory?

On this episode, I’m honored to be joined by author, speaker and digestive health specialist, Wade Lightheart, who shares his journey and all the facets of optimization that matter to him.

If you have a spiritual practice or doctrine, and a way to follow, it gives you a context and perspective and a way out of the suffering. -Wade Lightheart

At the start, Wade shared how he got to where he is today, and the life experiences that shaped him.

Next, we talked about the emerging and frightening trend of digestive health related issues so many Americans are facing.

We also talked about how society is moving into a new world and why technology is paving the way.

We also discussed:

  • What it takes to have a fulfilling life
  • The link between a healthy diet and metabolic flexibility
  • The moment that transformed Wade’s life spiritually

Three Takeaways

You cannot maintain metabolic flexibility if you have dysbiosis and an inflammatory gut.

If you don’t take extreme and drastic measures to eat clean, your health will be incarcerated.

If you consume food that does not get digested properly, it becomes food for the bad bacteria lining your digestive tract(microbiome), which is why you wake up with brain fog, crusty eyes or low energy.

We’re on the precipice of a massive vibrational revolution.

We are multidimensional beings but we’re forced to look at things in a linear way.

How to stop sabotaging yourself

By Mitch Calvert

Do you ever stay up late and curse yourself the next morning when your alarm clock goes off?

Is it often paired with a bag of chips and bottle of wine? It’s a far too common problem I see clients make.

But you seem unable to see the big picture in the moment, right?

Fittingly enough, watching the Netflix documentary Jerry Before Seinfeld past my bedtime, he addressed this failure of adulthood.

(Paraphrasing Jerry’s words)

“I'm Night Guy. I stay up as late as I want.

“Just one more episode, another sleeve of Oreos”

'What about getting up after five hours sleep?' Oh, that's Morning Guy's problem. That's not my problem.

…Then you get up in the morning, the alarm rings, you're exhausted, groggy… Oh, I hate that Night Guy!

See, Night Guy always screws Morning Guy. There's nothing Morning Guy can do.”

Research shows that when we think about ourselves in the future, it’s like we're thinking about another person.

So Night Guy goes out drinking with his friends and Morning Guy gets stuck with the hangover.

There’s Hungry Guy who leaves Heavy Guy with a beer gut, Young Guy who doesn’t save enough money for Old Guy to retire and so on.

What can you do? How do you become more investment minded, able to put off immediate gratification for your own best interests?

That’s what this article aims to help you with, so let’s get right to it.

Responsibility Debt

I first heard the concept of responsibility debt from Aadam Ali and it immediately resonated not just with me but for a lot of the people I work with.

Basically, it’s when your past/present self deflects responsibility to your future self.

But your future self already has pre-existing responsibilities and now you’ve just thrown a ton more onto him or her.

For example: Let’s say you decide that you’re not going to the gym today because it’s been a tough day mentally. You promise yourself you’ll go tomorrow and pass on responsibility to the tomorrow version of yourself.

But then tomorrow rolls around and your boss says you need to work late, so the gym session gets passed on again. You see where this is going, right?

It’s hard to be empathetic to something like your future self. It’s similar to trying to motivate yourself to lose weight to prevent heart disease or diabetes. Basing your decisions on what ifs down the road don’t tend to drive us like hard, more immediate reasons do (like losing pounds to fit that new dress just right or trimming the belly so it stops over-hanging our favourite jeans etc.)

So, how do you become more self-aware and empathetic to your future self?

Because that’s the thing about weight loss.

The longer you wait to make a change, the more difficult you’re making the process on your future self when you do pull the trigger.

How To Empathize With Your Future Self

Researchers suggest you can change your thinking on this by introducing yourself to your future self.

One clever way they have done this is to show people pictures of themselves that have been digitally aged (you know the Russian-based app that took the world by storm a few months ago?)

To take this further – use pictures of yourself with a few extra pounds added digitally. (I’m sure there’s an app for that).

When you see older/heavier versions of yourself you’re more likely to see your current and future selves as the same person.

As the researchers said, “these types of interventions help people realize that their future selves are ultimately dependent on the choices that they make today.”

If that doesn’t work, you can imagine your future self as a close friend. Would it be fair to put all your own responsibilities on this person? Or, should you handle it yourself now?

“Oh, right, I have a dinner appointment tomorrow which means I’ll have an even harder time getting in a workout. I should go today.”

Start confronting the ramifications of your choices in real time, and become more self-aware – and leaner – as a result.

Make Personal Care A Priority

Every Sunday I put my personal workouts into my Google Calendar along with all my other non-negotiables. If you don’t schedule the important things into your week, you won’t do them. When I don’t do this, I’m reactive to the day and workout adherence drops.

So, identify the area of greatest need and start scheduling it in with equal importance to your work meetings.

If it’s food prep, block off a half-hour on Sundays to prepare some lunches and map out your dinners for the week.

If it’s general inactivity, block off a few short windows of time to go for a walk.

If it’s limited sleep, set a ‘reverse alarm’ to go off every night at 10 that reminds you to put the phone away and turn off the TV.

Eat The Frog

As Mark Twain once said “If it’s your job to eat a frog, it’s best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it’s your job to eat two frogs, it’s best to eat the biggest one first.”

The frog is that one thing you have on your to-do list that you have absolutely no motivation to do and that you’re most likely to procrastinate on. Eating the frog means to just do it, otherwise the frog will eat you meaning that you’ll end up procrastinating it the whole day.

Once that one task is done, the rest of the day will be an easier ride and you will get both momentum and a sense of accomplishment at the beginning of your day.

Think Less, Act More

Whenever you begin to talk yourself out of doing something, that’s the time to do it.

“Folding this laundry can wait.” Do it now. “I’ll exercise after I finish watching this documentary.” Do it now. “I’ll write this article tomorrow.” Do it now.

Take action despite that inner voice in your head telling you not to bother.

As Mark Manson writes, most have this backward. Action isn’t the effect of motivation, but the cause of it. Take a little step forward, gain momentum and inspiration, and be motivated to do more.

If you’re waiting for the right time or motivation to spark on its own, you’ll be sitting around a lot.

Are you talking yourself out of exercising every morning?

Do this: Lay out your gym clothes the night before and make sure they’re staring at you when you wake up tomorrow.

Step 1 – Instead of your work clothes, put on the gym clothes.

Step 2 – Get in 15 minutes of exercise. If that snowballs into more, cool, but it doesn’t have to.

In the end, every our choices today shape your future – good or bad.

Every choice you make is either moving you closer or further from the healthy, fit version of your future self.

Start confronting the ramifications of your choices in real time, and become more self-aware – and leaner – as a result.

The BEST Health Optimization Podcast Of 2019: My Top 7 Takeaways

2020 will be the year where we collectively manifest the golden age of health optimization.

As the very first rule of quantum physics states, “You get what you choose to focus on”.

But even though we don’t focus on the dark parts of life, having full-spectrum awareness of the light and the dark is crucial.

For this is 'currently' the realm of duality and good can't exist without evil, light without dark.

In order for humanity to move forward, we must first understand what’s holding us back.

Last year I was privileged to do a 90-minute episode of The Optimized Life Podcast with Dr. Michael Moeller, one of my favorite enlightened physicians to discuss health optimization:

It’s literally one of the most important podcasts you’ll watch this year, and it’s an absolute goldmine of knowledge.

There were so many key insights and ideas we shared, but I want to focus on the top seven.

Let’s begin!

TAKEAWAY #1: Therapeutic Hormones & Peptides Are Being Actively Suppressed By Big Pharma

For the past five years, compounding pharmacies and their medications have been under assault.

There’s a LOT of political motivation behind doing so and the FDA is attempting to bury the pharmacy compounding industry into the ground.

Take a look at this PDF and see for yourself.

Among the many therapeutic compounds they want to ban is Tesamorelin, a phenomenal fat loss peptide that lowers triglyceride count and improves condition.

(Medically, it’s prescribed for abdominal adiposity – abnormal distribution of fat tissue – in patients with HIV)

It may not look like substances are being “banned” on paper, but this new motion would prevent physicians from prescribing them to their patients.

But on what basis?

“Well, um…bro, these medications are not proven to be safe, but this manufactured stuff that’s FIVE TIMES MORE EXPENSIVE is definitely safe”.

Compounding pharmacies are obviously a huge threat to Big Pharma.

Not only can drugs be formulated to meet specific medical needs, but you can also get access to inaccessible drugs for a far more affordable price.

This provides a level of medical freedom to society which threatens the profit margins of the pharmaceutical industry.

And as you already know, Big Pharma (a.k.a. “sick care medicine”) is NOT in the business of saving lives.

They need people to be sick, otherwise they don’t make billions of dollars.

It is in their best interest to keep people fat, depressed, sick, and addicted to their medications for as long as possible.

Doctors LITERALLY prescribe more of a drug if the pharmaceutical company tied to the drug is paying them for it.

“We studied the 50 most-prescribed brand-name drugs in Medicare for which drugmakers had made payments to doctors in 2016.

The drugs include treatments for diabetes, asthma, high cholesterol, hypertension, glaucoma and more.

Of those 50 drugs, 38 cost more than $1,000 per year.

For 32, at least 10% of doctors prescribing the drug received payments tied to the drug from the company that made it.

For 46 of the drugs in 2016, doctors who received payments for the drug prescribed more of it compared with doctors who did not.

On average, doctors who received payments prescribed 58% more of that drug than doctors who did not.”

In order for this trend to keep on going, they need to attack people who choose to opt out of sick care and instead focus on wellness and functional health.

All of this is done under the guise of “safety” to prevent people from asking too many questions.

Even though medical errors are the THIRD leading cause of death in the United States, the powers that be feel entitled to dictate what’s safe and unsafe.

So long as they dictate your health and your wealth (and health IS your wealth), you are under their control.

Every single physician I have talked to has seen the writing on the wall for the past year.

Once the medications are suppressed, the medical practices and their doctors will be the next target.

But there is a way to fight back against Big Pharma and say NO!

And if you’re someone using optimization drugs such as therapeutic testosterone, desiccated thyroid or Metformin, pay very close attention!

Go to SaveMyCompounds.com, fill out your information and say something like this:

"I support the use of therapeutic hormones and the idea of wealth and health and wellness"

An active vigilant citizenry is the only way to fight back against the flawed healthcare system.

Therapeutic peptides and hormones have literally saved marriages, prevented suicides and given people meaning when they had no hope.

We do not have to continue getting indoctrinated by people and entities who do not have our well-being as their top priority.

We do not have to way for any political party to take action.

As a collective society, we have to consciously manifest the Golden Age of fully optimized health.

Just look at what we already have right now with all the biomedical advances made in 2019 alone!

The Rocket for male sexual health, Vantis for permanent hair loss reversal, C60 for increased energy and sleep…and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Something MUCH BIGGER is also on the horizon, and I'm directly involved.

Soon my Aseir Custom co-founder Nick Andrews and I will be releasing a combination product of copper peptide GHK-Cu with Carbon 60 (ESS60) that will profoundly revolutionize the hair loss game. (Much more about this development can be found here).

To be clear, this is NOT about judging or attacking enemies.

We are simply making other people aware there is an interest actively attempting to limit our rights to using therapeutic medications such as peptides and hormones.

TAKEAWAY #2: Bought-Out Health Influencers Who Know Absolutely NOTHING About Health!

Take a look at who’s on the list of the world’s top 50 influencers, according to this list:

This is an absolute FARCE!

Michael Phelps is a phenomenal athlete and one of the most gifted swimmers to ever grace the Earth.

His accomplishments are nothing short of extraordinary, but that’s as far as it goes.

I can guarantee you he knows diddly squat about health.

Kelly Starrett is at #50, which is ludicrous considering he’s far more influential than anybody on the list.

Having met in in person, he is a brilliant researcher and an all-around good human being.

David Goggins and Jocko Willink (#30) deserve some props – these are badass ex-military dudes who put out good information about improving your life.

And this is as much benefit as I’m willing to give to the list.

They have Bernie Sanders at #35, a presidential candidate whose proposed “Medicare For All” plan will be our very demise if he gets elected.

Ethan Brown (CEO of Beyond Meat) takes the #45 spot for producing a product that will have devastating effects on your health, both short term and long term.

What’s my point in all this?

Modern society’s perception of what constitutes a “health influencer” is a total sham.

Let’s be honest — many of the people on that list don’t even have body fat levels under 30%!

I can also say with a high degree of conviction that these people are probably being paid a generous amount of money to do this.

It’s a giant corporate conspiracy fed by mainstream media and all the boomers watching CNN, Fox, MSNBC, and CBS are just eating it all up.

Propaganda and fake news have become a staple of the average American’s information diet.

The end result is a society where two thirds of the population is obese, and a medical system obsessed with chasing money.

Want to see how deep this really goes?

One of the most devastating things to ever happen to the medical profession is the Flexner Report, a written report published in 1910 which now defines the standards and educational curriculum for doctors that we know of today.

In order to combat the problem of medical schools operating on a “for profit” basis instead of an educational basis, secondary school teacher Abraham Flexner proposed two things:

Establish standardized requirements to become an M.D., and define an appropriate amount of education for doctors.

Sounds like a good thing, right?

Nope!

In order to bring Flexner’s vision to light, two things had to happen:

“First, use the coercive power of the state to limit the practices of physician competitors such as homeopaths, pharmacists, midwives, nurses, and later, chiropractors.

Second, significantly restrict entrance to the profession by restricting the number of approved medical schools in operation and thus the number of students admitted to those approved schools yearly”

(The American Medication Association even had the goal of shutting down more than 50% of medical schools in existence at the time)

Before I go on, the first thought in your head right now is true — Flexner was NOT a medical authority in any way, admitting he knew nothing about medicine or how to appropriately judge medical education.

Here is the end result, as beautifully written in this takedown of Flexner’s philosophy:

“Ironically, the same author of that report, Abraham Flexner, destroyed accessible effective medicine for many people in the USA by essentially saying things like folk remedies, herbalism, cultural differences, gender differences, and so on were useless knowledge.

Key treatment modalities abandoned as a result included spending time in the sunshine (which we now know gives you essential vitamin D), an emphasis on good nutrition (which is not a "procedure" doctors can be trained in and bill for), and other aspects of having a happier life like humor and so on (e.g. what Dr. Andrew Weil or Patch Adams write about).”

Bioethicist Edmund Pellegrino’s biggest fear that doctors would become “neutered technicians with patients in the service of science rather than science in the service of patients” came true.

To make a long story short, what can you do about all of this?

Make your own decisions, do your own objective research and make up your own damn mind.

The old saying “follow the dollar signs” will reveal a lot more than you think.

TAKEAWAY #3: 5-Amino 1MQ Is the Ultimate Peptide For Maximum Muscle Gain (And ZERO Fat Gain)

5-Amino 1MQ is perhaps the most potent peptide in existence for maximizing lean muscle gain while minimizing fat deposition.

This beauty works by targeting NNMT (small molecule nicotinamide N-methyltransferase), which has a role in the regulation of nicotinamide (NA) and of the methionine cycle.

NNMT inhibition activates muscle stem cells and promotes the regeneration of aged muscle cells, which is exactly what 5-Amino 1MQ does.

It comes with NUMEROUS health benefits:

  • Can reverse diet-induced obesity
  • Can treat related metabolic conditions
  • Can increase cellular energy regulators
  • Can prevent lipogenesis (fat accumulation)
  • Can increase NAD+and SAM concentrations in fat cells
  • Can regulate energy expenditure in fat cells
  • Demonstrates muscle tissue regeneration through muscle stem cell activation in terms of both repair of damage and treatment of “aging based” muscle loss/degeneration
  • Chronic administration showed no toxic or negative effects

When I used this for just four short weeks in 2019, I was shocked at how effective it was.

And 5-Amino 1MQ is not an injectable peptide: It’s an ORAL medication you swallow like any other pill!

Within 14 days of using it, I was bigger (10 pounds) and without any fat gain (without dietary modification or kcal restriction).

Not only was I stronger in the gym, but my ability to recover after grueling workouts was massively improved.

I haven’t felt any delayed onset muscle soreness since I started, even when I train my legs using the Forged Training protocol.

If you’re a bodybuilder and you’re eating to put on size, you absolutely want to use this.

You’ll metabolically burn calories at an accelerate rate regardless of your caloric intake, and gain muscle without putting on fat.

This is especially important if you’re increasing your training volume in the gym.

But as with all things, we are all biochemically individual and unique.

You may not get the same effects as me and that’s perfectly ok.

I’ve been fully dialed in for the past 2 decades when it comes to my hormones and health, so naturally I can benefit more from 5-Amino 1MQ.

For obese person who doesn’t exercise and eats like shit, it will be an entirely different story.

REMEMBER, there are no magic bullets or holy grails.

Just consistently doing the work combined with adjuncts like fully optimized supplements/hormones.

TAKEAWAY #4: Regular Blood Work Is MANDATORY For Fully Optimized Health

(Watch 40:10-1:05:41 on the video to see my FULL blood work I recently did!)

What gets measured gets improved, and your health is no exception to the rule.

In order to get a complete picture of what’s going on in your body, regularly getting your blood tested is essential.

I’ve been getting my blood work done twice a year for the past 20 years since 1999.

I have several fully-filled binders in my office containing all the lab results I’ve had since I first started using therapeutic testosterone.

I know every single lab value of importance, and I’m always comparing and contrasting the results year over year.

If you’re on any form of hormone optimization and you’re working with a progressive-minded doctor, this is not debatable.

Your blood tests help you see how well your body is working, identify any risk factors for disease, evaluate how well your medications are working, and so much more.

Even for an average Joe who will never touch a hormone in their life, blood work is an absolute must.

Don’t wait for your doctor to tell you something is wrong before you finally get one and it’s already too late.

If you are fully committed to better health, you need to take a proactive approach instead of being reactive.

As for what markers to screen for, I’ve detailed them extensively in The TOT Bible.

But you will never go wrong by measuring your inflammatory markers.

TAKEAWAY #5: Therapeutic Testosterone DOES NOT Cause Blood Clots

A normal consequence of injecting testosterone is an increased red blood cell (RBC) count, which leads to erythrocytosis.

Erythrocytosis occurs when ONLY your hemoglobin and hematocrit values are elevated.

Ideally, you want your hemoglobin levels below 20 g/dL and your hematocrit levels lower than 52-54% of blood volume.

However, this is a common occurrence in 40% of testosterone users and it is physiologically harmless.

And it is easily solved by periodically giving blood via therapeutic phlebotomy.

(Side note: Erythrycytosis is also common in people who live at very high altitudes).

Where most doctors go wrong is confusing erythrocytosis with polycythemia vera.

Polycythemia vera occurs when ALL of your blood cell values are elevated, including your platelet count.

This is a harmful condition which leads to blood clotting, thereby increasing your risk of having a heart attack or a stroke.

When physicians make this mistake, they make their patients draw blood so often that it will lower your levels of iron and disrupt your thyroid function.

Therapeutic testosterone has never been associated with any risk of clotting in all the studies done over the past 4 decades UNLESS someone is genetically predisposed to blood clotting.

TAKEAWAY #6: The Two Fallacies Of Measuring Your Testosterone Levels

The first fallacy involves a misunderstanding of what “normal” levels of testosterone are.

Testosterone levels have been decreasing at an accelerated rate across the globe:

“A study on a large sample of American men found that the average testosterone level has been dropping by as much as 1 percent per year.

Testosterone levels lower naturally with age, but this study found that a 65-year-old man in 1987 had about 17 percent more testosterone than a 65- year-old man in 2004.”

The main culprit, alongside obesity and living a sedentary lifestyle, was pollution:

“Research has shown that chemicals that are commonly found in medicine and pesticides inhibit testosterone."

These chemicals are seeping into our water, contributing to fertility problems in fish. The researchers also speculate that this same mechanism is occurring in humans as well.”

The second fallacy involves the range of total testosterone changing over the past few years.

Since there is an epidemic of obese men with lower testosterone levels, what’s defined as acceptable has changed.

In 2011, the reference range was based on males who were lean and healthy.

In 2017, the numbers changed to accommodate the epidemic I just described.

As I wrote in a previous blog:

“Most people have noticed that the lower end of LabCorp testosterone reference range is now 264 ng/dL, whereas the previous lower end of the ‘normal range’ was 348 ng/dL.”

TAKEAWAY #7: There Is NO SUCH THING As “Estrogen Dominance”

The biggest myth I continue to see in the health optimization space is a man’s estrogen levels being too high can cause problems.

It's also important to clarify there is no such thing as "High Estrogen Symptoms".

That is total bro-science and supported by only idiots on message boards everywhere.

Much more on this in an upcoming podcast with Dr Scott Howell the world's leading androgen researcher.

So the first course of action used by doctors is to prescribe extremely harmful medications known as aromatase inhibitors (AIs).

I debunked this notion heavily in my definitive article explaining the importance of optimal estrogen levels:

“Testosterone MUST be converted into estrogen in order to manifest its numerous therapeutic benefits to the body's many biological systems.

In men not using therapeutic testosterone, the case of 'higher estrogen levels' is a result of imbalance – estradiol levels are increasing and testosterone levels are decreasing due to insulin resistance (IR) from high levels of systemic inflammation.”

Get inflamed enough, and you’ll be on a one-ticket ride towards Type 3 Diabetes:

“This “type 3 diabetes” is a term that has been proposed to describe the hypothesis that Alzheimer’s disease, which is a major cause of dementia, is triggered by a type of insulin resistance and insulin-like growth factor dysfunction that occurs specifically in the brain.”

The solution to this problem isn’t to suppress your estrogen levels.

Doing so will deteriorate your bones, lower your libido, set you up for heart disease, and leave you feeling miserable every waking minute.

STOP chasing lab numbers – the only thing that matters is establishing a balance between testosterone and estrogen where you feel good.

When you screw up a man’s estrogen levels, the outcomes are actually worse than having lower testosterone levels.

The REAL solution is to live an insulin-controlled lifestyle.

It means you need to stop putting junk food, sugar and alcohol in your mouth, as food is the critical element here.

It means reducing your carbohydrate intake, training intelligently with weights and doing cardiovascular exercise on a regular basis.

The Future Of Health Optimization In 2020 And Beyond

The podcast I did with Dr. Moeller was nothing short of exceptional.

But not to worry – there are going to be MANY more episodes of the brand new Jay Campbell Podcast where I bring in thought leaders and industry experts who go beyond testosterone.

Biohacking, spiritual development, quantum physics, and overcoming soul trauma are just small samples of what’s to come.

And if you’re just getting started on the path, I highly recommend following Living A Fully Optimized Life to the letter.
