In today’s episode Dr. Sara Pugh shares the importance of understanding what’s in your water, including the varying hydrogen isotopes that make different water types.
That’s right, there’s some important nuances to explore, as water (H2O2) varies based on its hydrogen isotope.
You may be surprised to learn that we MAKE water inside our bodies! It can be argued that it is more important that we make water than drink it.
Deuterium containing water is considered “heavy water” because it has a neutron in its Hydrogen, causing it to have double the mass. As a result, it slows down mitochondrial function similarly to how putting the wrong motor oil in your engine makes it run slower and ultimately clogs it up.
Deuterium acts as an “energy thief” when it enters mitochondria. Dr. Pugh explains how the body has a built-in mechanism by which it creates “check points” to ensure deuterium does not get near this powerhouse of an organelle!
In this episode, Dr. Pugh will wet your appetite for understanding the quantum physics involved in
water production, and the distribution of it by touching on circadian biology and light, which is pivotal to protecting the mitochondria.
85% of chronic illnesses are rooted in mitochondrial heteroplasmy (decreasing function). If you are interested in staving off dis-ease and cancer or woud simply like to have more energy, then this episode will be of interest to you
Mindfulmedicina in India? It’s true. That happened.
Hot on the heels of our conversation with Dr. Jack Kruse on the future of decentralized medicine comes this visit to its ancient roots. Janell traveled to India again last November and stayed at an Ayurvedic healing center. She interviewed Dr. Archana Ramola, practitioner and advocate of Science Based Evidence Based Ayurveda (SBEBA).
Sadly, over the ages Ayurveda has largely slipped into conventional, commercialized patterns, much like allopathic and even modern Naturopathic medicine has. The emphasis on diet, lifestyle and simple interface with nature has given way to over-prescribing long lists of herbs and supplements, forsaking an individualized diagnostic process for formulaic protocols. Essentially, treating symptoms rather than root cause.
Dr. Archana Ramola explains how SBEBA has resurrected and standardized the training of pure Ayurveda a pure and fully accessible form of decentralized medicine.
What does it mean to "decentralize" medicine?
In today's chat with Dr. Jack Kruse, we'll explore some of the foundational principles that define this concept. The premise is a return to Nature as our primary physician. Sound simple?
The complexity lies in the various ways in which we must dismantle a lifetime of indoctrination within the "centralized" medical matrix.
Dr Kruse-a self-professed "mitochondriac," offers insights on mitochondrial dynamics as well as the role of light, magnetism, and water in healing. Don't miss his fascinating reflections on how the trail of decentralized medicine and money (in the form of Bitcoin) is being blazed in the country of El Salvador, where Dr Kruse currently practices and resides as a growing figure of influence.

Our own beliefs about time shape life's circumstances profoundly, even if we've never examined this closely for ourselves. Common laments such as "I don't have enough time!" may sound familiar. Though... deep down, most of us know this isn't true.
Still, the art of time management is elusive and can seem daunting. Despite our best efforts, it might feel like we're on a hamster wheel that never quite takes us where we aim to go.
Enter: The Time Boss Method. Andrew Hartman has developed a brilliant remedial system spurred by first hand experience of the ways we suffer without a proper relationship with time. He joins us today to offer his philosophy and best practices around mending this crucial relationship. Dr. Daneals and Janell weave in observations focused on the nervous system, psychology and other tidbits of their collective wisdom.
It's time to get time on your side.
Dr. Todd Cameron joins us to share what your endocrinologist won't tell you about bio-identical hormone therapy. With all the myths and misinformation woven by mainstream research being funded by Big Pharma, we'd bet you'd rather hang your hat on evidential truth provided by high quality independent studies. Optimal hormone levels can protect us from cancer, heart disease, dementia, osteoporosis, diabetes and more.
This episode is a must-listen for those approaching, in the midst of, or post menopause, low T levels or any other hormonal concerns.
Dr. Cameron comes to us with 25 years of solid research and experience with a message of hope: you can be vibrantly healthy at any age.

Listeners ask, We answer! Today's question:
"As a middle-aged man, I wonder about a healthy testosterone level for myself. I have many friends who are taking T injections and all of them swear by it. I am a bit more hesitant to lunge in. I want my body to age naturally without this (if possible). What are some other supplements/options?"
Dr. Daneals and Janell dive in to discuss a pharmaceutical vs. comprehensive lifestyle approach to maintaining vital levels of testosterone at any age. As always, these two offer their combined expertise spanning natural wisdom from both holistic western and eastern perspectives. Learn to avoid secret sources of sabotage and activate your virility via consistent routines around food, rest, breath, exercise and herbs.

Wrapping up our Deep Dance series on the Sun, Ayurvedic health coach Kate Towell joins us to discuss Dinacharya: the art of harmonizing our daily activities with circadian rhythm for healing and maintaining vibrant health. The ancients taught what modern scientists are now verifying! Enjoy this fascinating synthesis between the Sun science presented by Dr. Daneals in our first series episode with the Ayurvedic principles Kate teaches us today.
Our dance continues as Janell weaves the sun science Dr Daneals revealed in the previous episode into the practical realm of skin care and diet. Learn about specific mechanisms of sun damage, along with strategies for mitigation and repair via natural remedies applied topically as well as taken internally through seasonal foods and specific supplements.
The sun should not be feared, but embraced! It can beautify and “age you backwards” if your dance is on point.

Dr. Daneals aims to increase your solar competency and liberate the sun from false accusations of being an endangerment to health. The jury is out: The sun is innocent.
You'll find this discussion more elaborate than your typical "Go get some sun for vitamin D" talk.
The sun is an orchestra with many instrumental biological processes. Production of vitamin D is just one instrument strumming in the composition. The sunlight and melanin have perpetuated mammalian life on earth. It's an electric partner dance and you don't want to miss a beat!
