Dairy Intolerance or Mutated Gene Intolerance? 

Blake and Stephanie were both born and raised as dairy farmers and bought their current farm in 1992. In 2002, they became certified organic farmers and began studying soil and nutrient density on their farm as well as milk proteins. A2 is the digestible casein protein found in all mammalian milk, but about one thousand years ago it mutated to the A1 form which causes lactose to ferment and potentially why we've seen a rise in dairy intolerances over the last couple of decades. Through their studies Blake and Stephanie learned the difference between A1 and A2 beta casein proteins in milk and they began to breed A1 out of their herd.

Today, they have a large herd of 100% A2/A2 genetics cows, and sell only A2 organic milk and yogurt nationwide.  Alexandre Family Farm is the first Certified Regenerative dairy and egg ranch in the U.S.  They are also certified organic and certified humane. Listen in as they share their journey with Morgan with the difficulties of raising organic calves and venturing away from antibiotic usage, their thoughts on what regenerative agriculture means to them and how they want to bring people back to dairy.

Elle Russ chats with Tyler Cartwright - 15 years ago, Tyler was nearly dead. He weighed a quarter of a ton, he was falling asleep while driving, while talking, and while working.  He was eating 12,000 Calories per day chasing blood glucose spikes and crashes just to stay awake.  His A1c was in excess of 13, and he was nearer to death each day.  A series of events over time and his own desire to improve brought him face-to-face with the gravity of this situation and he began to fight for his well-being for the first time in nearly two decades.  He shed 300 pounds of excess body weight and has maintained the loss for over three years.  His A1c, BG, and all markers of metabolic health have returned.  

Tyler now coaches and teaches others how to do so, both through his cofounding of Ketogains with Luis Villaseñor, and through his recently published book, Kintsukuroi:  Rebuilding Hope & Embracing Change.  His work and his coaching have helped thousands of people to succeed and inspired countless others to pursue their goals.  He is an international public speaker, loves a great conversation, and enjoys reading on various topics (with a library well over 2500 books).  His wife, Jamie, and their daughter live at home outside of Nashville, TN with their dog Dixie.

Host Brad Kearns talks about the all-important topic of testosterone optimization—preserving health, vitality, focus, and motivation as we age.

Male hormone status is a slippery slope because when you start to accumulate a bit of a spare tire, testosterone can decline at an accelerated rate. This begets the accumulation of more spare tire, and more decline in testosterone. It’s time to fight the battle against accelerated aging! Accordingly, Brad has created the “MOFO Mission,” (more at BradKearns.com) a series of 10 assignments designed to cover all aspects of healthy living to be the best you can be. This show covers the first five assignments, so get ready to take simple, sustainable action toward naturally boosting your internal testosterone production. Here are the first five assignments: Prioritize sleep, Clean up your act (mostly food, but also other stuff), Eat ancestral foods, consider supplementation to replenish cellular energy, and move frequently at a slow pace. Part 2 will recover five additional assignments that will rock your world.

Host Brad Kearns discusses what could be the fitness breakthrough of the century: Micro-workouts!
 
These are brief bursts of explosive effort that you can sprinkle into your daily routine. Examples include a set of deep squats right there at your work desk, a single set of pull-ups as you pass under the closet door, a sprint up two flights of stairs in the office building, pulling Stretch Cordz or TRX bands for a couple of quick sets, and so on. The benefits of micro-workouts are numerous. First, they are accessible to anyone no matter how busy your daily routine is. Second, the cumulative fitness benefits over time are phenomenal - you launch your formal workouts from a much high platform. Third, these workouts are brief enough that you don't risk the common problem of overly stressful workout patterns that lead to breakdown, burnout, illness, and injury.
 
Perhaps most beneficial is how these little forays help break up prolonged periods of stillness that are so common in modern life and have now been identified as a huge health hazard. A minute or two of effort gets the blood and oxygen circulating throughout the body to enhance fat burning and cognitive function when you return to your screen. Perhaps the best way to get started with micro-workouts is to design a brief sequence of movements to execute first thing in the morning? Watch Brad's YouTube video, "Dynamic Stretching Routine To Start Your Day" for some ideas. Create a sequence that's simple and brief enough that you can commit to it every single day and mold it into a habit.

Elle Russ chats with CJ Hunt - filmmaker and broadcast journalist, and the writer, co-executive producer and on-camera host of the documentary The Perfect Human Diet (and a companion book with the same name). This 2-hour podcast episode spans from discussions on ancestral history and findings to digging deep into debunked health studies, along with CJ's recent personal journey with hypothyroid issues that were solved through T3-only hormone treatment.

The film evolved from his true-life story, beginning in 1978 when paramedics brought Mr. Hunt back to life at the age of 24 after suffering a full cardiac arrest while jogging. That incident evoked an intense passion to find out how we can all achieve longer, healthier and happier lives and then share that information with others. CJ has over twenty years of experience in broadcasting, voiceovers, television and live events. He is the author of three books on diet and health.

Host Brad Kearns honors listener questions and comments with some commentary on three very important topics. First, the pros and cons of an intuitive approach to eating, and how to do it correctly without suffering the drawbacks of an insufficiently disciplined approach. Second, the fitness breakthrough of the century that is micro-workouts, and how you integrate these smoothly into your daily lifestyle to experience an array of benefits like raising the fitness platform for formal workouts, meeting your daily movement quota, and experiencing a significant cumulative fitness benefit. 

Finally, you’ll learn the critical distinction between an ill-advised HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) session and a more effective, more explosive HIRT (High-Intensity Repeat Training) session that carries less downside risk of overdoing it and getting injured.  Unfortunately, the prevailing approach to HIIT leads to depletion and exhaustion. You can gain vastly more benefit from doing shorter efforts and taking “luxurious” rest intervals. These concepts come from Dr. Craig Marker and were detailed in this MDA article, HIIT vs HIRT

Host Brad Kearns welcomes Jake Steiner to discuss the amazing world of correcting your eyesight gradually and naturally over time.

Jake is the founder of EndMyopia.org, which offers extensive scientifically validated education on how myopia is not a genetic condition, but rather a problem driven by excessive use of close up screens causing spasms in the ciliary muscle in the eye that affects your ability to focus well on distant objects. Jake describes how wearing glasses is a "subscription, not a prescription" and a sure path to progressively declining vision over time. However poor your eyesight is right now, you can take some simple steps to introduce what Jake calls, "a little bit of blur" into your life and use glasses on an as-needed basis rather than a habitual crutch. Challenging your eyes in a gentle manner will retrain your eye muscles more effectively and allow you to make steady progress toward lenses of less and less correction over time. Jake was at minus 5 diopters and no longer needs glasses, will explain how you can improve at the gradual rate of 1 diopter per year. Check out Jake's app called Meow-Sure that allows you to quantify progress over time.
