Primal Blueprint Podcast (general)

I get more questions these days about lymphatic health—particularly lymphedema. Sometimes it’s an issue related to a reader’s cancer recovery or a co-occurring symptom seen with a loved one’s other health concerns. While I might take up specific conditions in future posts (let me know if you have suggestions there), I thought I’d spend today taking apart the basics of lymphatic health. As with many of the body’s core operating functions, the real story often gets camouflaged within vague, consumer-based terms that end up being only medically tangential. Consider today’s post a trip into the weeds and (maybe) the beginning of an ongoing conversation on the topic.

Co-hosts Elle Russ and Brad Kearns provide an exciting account of the many highlights of the amazing 2018 Paleo F(x) show, April 27-29 in Austin, TX. They mention good stuff from Mark Sisson, Robb Wolf, Dr. Joe Mercola, Luis Villasenor and Elle's knockout inaugural presentation on all-things thyroid. Highlights from the informative Keto panel discussion and the endurance training panel discussion, where Brad and Mark and others talked about the importance of a relaxed approach to training and finding activities that get you into the flow state. They discuss the dynamic format of the show with indoor individual presentations and panel discussions, outdoor physical workshops, and the many interesting vendors from the show. 
 
Brad clears up the misconceptions around the booming popularity of exogenous ketone supplementation and discusses some best practices. The Primal Health Coach Tribe was out in full force, and had a fabulous lunchtime picnic, Ultimate Frisbee game with Mark, and running technique workshop with Brad. Elle talks about the importance of connection and group energy, mentioning the awesome VIP speaker party where she mingled with the coolest people on the planet, like the Lamberts of the Bee the Wellness podcast. Brad offers highlights from his video interview with the incomparable Luis Villasenor of Ketogains, including Luis's profound insight that if you are struggling with a dietary transition or keto adherence, just eat the same thing every day (with certainty on the macros) until you build some nice momentum.

Cold is really catching these days. Aubrey Marcus, whom I recently filmed a nice podcast with, was asked about his winning daily behaviors on another show. The very first thing he mentioned was “exposure to cold.” His practice is finishing his morning shower with a three-minute stint at full cold setting. He mentioned the hormonal benefits but also the mental edge he gets from psyching up and accepting the challenge instead of wimping out. He also cited research that people who engage in therapeutic cold exposure catch fewer upper respiratory infections. Hence, like many other elements of conventional wisdom, the old wives tale is backwards. Of course, we are talking about acute and optimal duration cold exposure, not prolonged exposure to elements that weaken your resistance and contribute to immune disturbances.

I can’t complain about my existence in modern culture. My life is great. I have a loving family. My kids are happy and successful. My wife is a friend and lover and confidante and partner. Business is good and interesting. I care about what I’m doing. Every day is meaningful—and unburdened by concerns around mental well-being. Depression isn’t an issue for me.
