Caleb, welcome. Thanks for being here.

Caleb: Hello Katie. Thank you very much for having me.

Katie: I’m excited to chat with you today, and there is so much I can’t wait to cover with you. But, after knowing a little bit about your background and what my husband has told me about you, I think the best place to start is with your story, which tells me Knowing a little about is incredible. So how did we get into this world?

Caleb: Oh yeah it was, you know, synchronized and just beautiful time I say. I basically got a 2 by 4 in the sky. It was a life-changing event, with a professional snowboarding background, acrobatics, gymnastics, a lot of adrenaline, a lot of high intensity, flow oriented sports, which was very athletic in that regard. So I didn’t pay so much attention to diet and health because my body just knew what to do. But this Divine 2 lady knocked me from the sky, dropped me about five stories on my neck, my back, straight up on the ice. So I rotated a couple more times, you know, trying a flip for some rotation, and some flip flops, and I dropped straight on the neck and back.

So I have broken various aspects of my neck and cervical spine. And then a lot of different bones actually broke, you know, both of my lungs have bone bones for ribs to fall. For me at that time it was really intense life changing event. It completely changed my life in the sense that… you know, from 180 onwards, in search of fame and fortune and all the wonderful things, the MTV “Krebs” lifestyle is basically the world of snowboarding. Was looking for And it really only affected me in that sense of recovery because I was in a full nine yard body cast and neck curves, and I was on numerous pain killers and muscle relaxants. So my mind was in a very strange fuzzy place, but very open.

And my mom is so incredibly supportive that, you know, she helped me in the sense that she would love to read, and she would put you on my bed in a pile of books. And long story short, through that, I just got into some gateway gangs, you know, Deepak Chopra and a lot of other amazing people who help me understand that it wasn’t all about me, this It was not just about me experiencing this life, there are other people. And it seems obvious, but sometimes we lose sight of it, and it really changed me. I realized that there is a lot of suffering in the world that is not necessary at all. There are ways we can help one another and help ourselves, and help our loved ones get as much health as possible, so that we can have the most happiness in a pleasant experience as we can.

And at the same time as my medical journey, I completely shifted my experience to focus on serving others. At that time, I didn’t know what it was like, but through this healing journey, realizing how naturally intelligent the body was, I chose not to go through the intense surgery I was about to have. You know that doctors scared me and just trying to see it, well you can’t run anymore, you can’t jump anymore, you won’t put on a snowboard, basically your life is over. Is. And you’ll have two years of maintenance and bars and pins in your back. I was only at the deep core gut level, I knew it was wrong and I knew my body was more intelligent in that regard.

And my mum was very supportive. It’s like, “You can have surgery or you can naturally heal.” And I chose the natural path. I am so glad I did because I came back stronger than ever, from sports, to the sport, but also to this new deep interest and greater human health obsession and How nature designed intelligently evolutionary processes, how we keep on repeating race and generation, and we endorse that in different worlds we have natural supplements in this world, from medical biotechnology and There’s a lot more access ahead, you know, the whole spectrum. Yes, just guiding this path of deep diving into cellular metabolism, mitochondrial function, bio physics, bio-photonics, how light affects biological, DNA epigenetics. There is more to it now.

And that’s how it attracted me to the creation of comprehensive bio-hacking, a framework that just brought together all the different experiences and wonders of all the worlds, scientists, practitioners, and spiritual leaders in just one way. All brought together by what we can do. Must upgrade and improve our lives. It doesn’t matter where we are right now, what kind of lifestyle we lead, where all over the world, there is always something we can do to improve and improve ourselves, whether it be psychological, emotional. Be it spiritually, or physically, biologically. Especially

And the journey has just been incredible to work with so many people over the years, learn so much in these places, and really start tasting things together. It’s a never-ending journey, but I’ve been able to help incredibly many people throughout the process. Seeing the results on the other end is a lot more fulfilling whether this is a program I develop or, you know, private coaching I do with top level clients and Olympians, CEOs, celebrities, I work with players, whatever happens, it doesn’t. No matter what, they know that they can take on new levels of life that they couldn’t even imagine, before, and just to see this change, and also, you know, the laboratory View test and evaluation results. I am a drive datagick for things that improve performance too. And so it has been such an amazing adventure to help, educate, and coach, and essentially help people live the best they possibly can, whether in their life or Wherever I am in the world, there is always a way.

Katie: Wow. This is truly an incredible story. And I’m guessing, you said, you didn’t really have that much background in the area of ​​nutrition and health, you were more than the athletic side. So I want to know what it looks like when you really start to get interested in del, and how you succeed in determining what is affecting and which is not. Was. Since my own journey over the past two years, I’ve become more and more aware of how many aspects of health are individual and personal, and I think we’re all responsible for figuring these things out. That works for all of us. And I think there are universal things that are useful in some way, but how did you start to evaluate it and how do you know when something is going to have the desired effect?

Caleb: In fact, you know, my mother had a background in being a nut of health, which was more than just a world of WoW and in that sense a spiritual being. So in the sweat lodge and I, you know, different events and I know, Indian tribal leaders and incredible experiences all around. And my mum takes so many pills, she takes a lot of supplements, sometimes a couple hundred pills a day. He just had every supplement under the sun. And I thought to myself, I was like, “You know, Mommy, I love you so much and you give me zinc lozenges and ecstasy and the thrill of gold whenever I have a sore throat or a possible cough. And you know, honey and ginger tea for ginger and salt wash, you know, nutty dishes. So it really nourished me in the dynamic of natural health, which I absolutely love and admire. A bunch of things at once, I wasn’t even involved in it.

And just as I grew up and became deeply acquainted with it, I realized that there is another harmony that we can come to understand with how these different geo-molecule molecules work. Whether we are eating or even cleaning the water we drink, detoxification is a big part of that. So figuring out that was the first step. And then I went deeper into the data, and that’s where my mind went, you know, studying neuroscience and human behavior and looking at laboratory test data to see if you know it. Is a hormone test, or blood level test, or a micronutrient test.

And one of my favorite choices is that we can see that we have a lot and not enough, but we have really felt about how we feel and how we look. So, this common sense of knowing you, you, you and you, and then knowing you hidden from the inside, you know, all this connecting and moving at such an intelligent level of the body. There are capabilities we don’t think about. is about. But then we think about what we look like, and we also think about how we feel. And so if we are tired and we are skilled in the morning, and we do not have that much energy all day or, you know, if you are a mother with children and you have this busy lifestyle, and you eat You are making and doing stuff easily and doing all these different things. After going to school, you are not seeing enough time for yourself.

But if you can use your inner feeling, how does every little change make a difference for you, whether it’s your energy, your sleep, or even, you know, if you’re walking in the gym. Or are exercising. , CrossFit, wherever you are, is always the way you can go about it. And some people naturally have a deep intuitive sense of it, and others have to train and condition it in the sense that everyone has potential. And so my first thing, you know, I just looked at it internally, you know, if I had acne and hormonal problems, and I was tired, and I wasn’t sleeping well, I had a dream, and I had a lot of digestion. Annoying issues too. I was gaining some weight as I moved more than the sports world, you know, to sit behind a computer and do the technical stuff of doing technical things. I was not so dynamic and so I got on really fast.

And I realized, you know, the problems I was facing when I was eating certain foods, I would stop eating those foods for a couple of weeks, I realized that I would feel better and I have less phlegm or I’m not sneezing. Or my digestion was more relaxed, or I didn’t have enough gas or bloating, and these are all indications. So the body always talks to us, every single day, every moment. And if you learn to listen to the symptoms, listen to what your body is trying to tell you, you can leave the track of engineers and the like a bit, well, maybe on Monday I had something I’m not feeling well. Tuesday and Wednesday

And if you can see what those things are, you can play with them. You know, maybe dairy, you’re a little sensitive to milk, you can’t process it. Then you want to try to take it out a bit and see how it makes you feel. And so I went through experiences like crazy guinea pigs, you know, for years as an experiment with super raw wagons, from nose to tail, now in the form of a table-to-table meaty style as well as everything in between The most incredible reason is that I overall felt like I had really done a lot of courses and training, you know how to connect it all, and you know what Can feel like. This yourself

And if you, for example, do laboratory diagnostic tests, which are not available to everyone as much as I want them, I really hop from incredible technologies to give us the answers they need. I can allow you to keep Our hand is on the phone. You know, we have this incredibly intelligent technology that can read our saliva or urine or whatever may eventually lead to blood drops. And in that sense, you may know if your vitamin D levels are low. And you know it’s connected to so many different aspects of health. Your magnesium is low, which is a big thing that we have long been missing, and are working to get more and more overall. Those microscopes are the key.

So if you see, well, I’m low in vitamin D, maybe I go out and get some sunlight on my eyes, on my skin, my feet and feet, you know, clean, ground to ground. Yes, restore this colonial system again. A connection that helps your body stimulate dynamic stem cell type elements to revitalize cells to a deeper level so that they can be cleansed and pulled out of you, you You can see it in the mirror. You can see your eyes bright, you can see your face thin. You can see a little bit more brightness, you literally hold more photons of light, you are brighter in that way. And you will hear the opinions of others, around your loved ones, in your community. They’ll say, “Wow, look, you know, Katie, you’re shining today, what did you do, you know?” And you could say, “Oh, I just did this thing, this and this, and it really, really helped. I’m sleeping better, and I have more energy as a result. And then when you also have the data, we do this before and after testing the client’s work, we see that you have a lot of these elements and we can do them in different ways. Can meet

But as well as the aspects that you can touch will help your body naturally manage these functions because, again, our DNA is the largest known data storage device in the universe. , As far as we have discovered. اور اس کے پاس تمام پچھلی نسلوں کے سارے جوابات اور معلومات موجود ہیں ، ہر طرح سے پیچھے ، وقت کے ساتھ ساتھ ، یہ جانتے ہیں کہ ہمیں ارتقا کے نقطہ نظر سے اس معنی میں زندہ رہنے اور دوبارہ پیش کرنے میں کیا مدد ملے گی۔ جیسا کہ سبھی ہمیں جانتے ہیں ، ہمارے پاس بیکٹیریل سے لے کر وائرل تک یا مختلف صورتوں میں مختلف مختلف چیلنجوں کا مقابلہ ہے۔ لیکن جب آپ اپنے اندرونی بدیہی احساس کو “میں نے اپنی زندگی میں ایکس تبدیل کر لیا ہے اور میں Y نتیجہ حاصل کر رہا ہوں” کے ساتھ جوڑ سکتا ہے تو ، آپ کے لئے سوچنے اور محسوس کرنے اور اس کے اندر کام کرنے کا ایک بہت اچھا تجرباتی ڈھانچہ ہے کیونکہ جوابات ، ہر نئی چیز جس کی آپ کوشش کرتے ہیں اور ہر نیا تجربہ جو آپ چلاتے ہیں اس کی رہنمائی کرتے ہیں ، اور یہ اسے تفریحی نقطہ نظر بننے میں بدل دیتا ہے۔

لہذا ، یہ سوچنے کی بجائے ، “اوہ ، نہیں ، میں نے یہ غذا لینا ہے ، اور یہ مزہ نہیں ہوگا اور یہ سوادج نہیں ہوگا ،” آپ واقعی تفریح ​​کرسکتے ہیں ، “واہ ، جس نے واقعی میری توانائی کو تبدیل کردیا۔ مجھے واقعی پسند آیا کہ میں اس کے ساتھ قائم رہوں گا۔ ” یا ، “آپ جانتے ہو ، اس نے حقیقت میں میری مدد نہیں کی۔ ہوسکتا ہے کہ اس نے میرے دوست کی مدد کی ، لیکن یہ میرے لئے نہیں ، لہذا میں صرف اس طرف جارہا ہوں ، آپ جانتے ہو ، اس پہلو سے سبکدوش ہوجائیں گے اور کسی نئی چیز کی طرف بڑھیں گے ، کیونکہ وہاں ہمیشہ کچھ اور ہوتا ہے۔ جب آپ اس اعداد و شمار کی حمایت کرنے والے عنصر کو اس کے ساتھ جوڑ دیتے ہیں تو اگر آپ اس پریکٹیشنر کے ساتھ لیبارٹری ٹیسٹ کروا سکتے ہیں جس کے ساتھ آپ کام کر رہے ہیں تو ، آپ اپنے ہارمونز ، آپ کے خون کی سطح ، اپنے مائکرونٹریٹینٹ ، اور یہاں تک کہ اپنے مائکٹو کنڈریل فنکشن میں بھی تبدیلی دیکھ سکتے ہیں۔

اور یہ سمجھنا کہ بنیادی سطح پر آپ کو یہ سمجھنے میں مدد ملتی ہے کہ آپ کے پاس لفظی جوابات موجود ہیں ، اور اب یہ ہم پر منحصر ہے کہ ہم جدید معاشرے میں کام کریں تاکہ وہاں سے ایک ایسی ڈگری تک غذائی اجزاء کی سطح کو حاصل کیا جاسکے کہ آپ ان کارکردگی کی تبدیلیوں کو دیکھیں۔ General Chat Chat Lounge اور آپ اسے آئینے میں دیکھیں گے ، آپ اسے اپنے آس پاس کے دوسروں کی عکاسی کرتے ہوئے دیکھیں گے اور آپ اسے داخلی طور پر محسوس کریں گے۔ اور آپ اس کی پشت پناہی کرنے کے ل the ڈیٹا بھی رکھ سکتے ہیں۔

کیٹی: مجھے یہ پسند ہے۔ میں بھی ایک بڑا اعداد و شمار ہوں ، اور میں اکثر لیب چلاتا ہوں اور وقت کے ساتھ ساتھ رجحانات دیکھنے کے ل spread ان کو اسپریڈشیٹ میں ٹریک کرتا ہوں۔ تو میں متجسس ہوں ، ایسی کون سے لیبز ہیں جو آپ ذاتی طور پر ٹریک کرنا چاہتے ہیں اور آپ کس چیز کی تلاش کرتے ہیں؟

کالیب: لہذا سم ربائی ایک ایسی جگہ ہے جہاں میں ہر ایک کے ساتھ شروع کرتا ہوں جس کے ساتھ میں پورے بورڈ میں کام کرتا ہوں۔ آپ جانتے ہو ، ہم ایک ایسے زہریلے جدید معاشرے میں رہتے ہیں جہاں آپ کو معلوم ہے ، آپ کے پاس ٹائروں سے ربڑ جل رہا ہے ، اور کاروں سے نکلنے والے دھوئیں اور گھنے شہری ماحول۔ تو یہاں بھاری دھاتیں ہیں جیسے سیسہ اور کیڈیمیم اور پارا۔ آپ کے پاس سڑنا زہریلا ہے ، جو صرف ایک سب سے بڑا چیلنج ہے جس میں بہت سارے لوگوں کو سامنا کرنا پڑتا ہے ، خاص طور پر پیسیفک نارتھ ویسٹ اور دیگر علاقوں میں۔ آپ یہ بھی نہیں جانتے کہ آپ کو پانی کا نقصان ہوتا ہے بعض اوقات وہ سڑنا چاروں طرف رہ سکتا ہے اور واقعتا you آپ کو ان طریقوں سے نقصان پہنچا سکتا ہے۔ وی او سی اور مختلف ہیں ، آپ جانتے ہو ، فلورو کاربن۔ ہوا میں تیرتی ہوئی مختلف چیزیں ہیں جن کو آپ ننگی آنکھوں سے نہیں دیکھ سکتے ہیں ، لیکن آپ سانس لے رہے ہیں یا وہ آپ کی جلد پر آ رہے ہیں ، یا صفائی ستھرائی کے سامان جو آپ اپنے باورچی خانے کو صاف کرنے کے لئے استعمال کر سکتے ہیں۔ اسی لئے ، آپ جانتے ہو ، سبز ماحول دوست دوستانہ صفائی ستھرائی کا سامان حیرت انگیز ہے۔ آپ جس بستر پر سو رہے ہیں ، آپ جانتے ہو ، اس قسم کی میٹریل جس سے گیس آف ہوسکتی ہے۔

تو یہ سب مختلف عنصر ہیں جو تقریبا ہر روز ہم پر حملہ آور ہوتے ہیں۔ اور ہمارے جسموں میں فطری طور پر اندرونی سم ربائی نظام موجود ہے ، لیکن ہمیں اس لحاظ سے پہلے سے کہیں زیادہ مدد کی ضرورت ہے۔ اور اسی طرح وہاں سے گزرتے ہوئے ، میں عام طور پر مولڈ لیب پینلز سے شروع کرتا ہوں ، میں ہارمون پینلز سے شروع کرتا ہوں۔ میں گزرتا ہوں ، اس بات پر منحصر ہے کہ لوگوں میں بھاری دھات کا زہریلا ہے۔ اکثر اوقات ، بھاری دھات اور سڑنا زہریلا کے مابین الٹا تعلق ہوتا ہے ، لہذا اگر آپ کے پاس ایک آزمائش ہے اور آپ کو آزمائشی نتیجہ نظر آتا ہے کہ یہ ظاہر ہوتا ہے کہ آپ اکثر ایسا کرتے ہیں۔ اور اگر آپ ہر چیز کی جانچ کرسکتے ہیں تو یہ اچھا ہے ، لیکن اگر آپ کو کچھ اہم چیزیں مل جاتی ہیں تو ، آپ کے جسم میں زہریلے مادے معلوم ہوجاتے ہیں جو قدرتی طور پر جانتے ہیں کہ آپ کیا کرنا چاہتے ہیں ، اور آپ کا ڈی این اے واقعی میں آپ کو بہتر بنانے کے لئے ہر لمحہ کام کرنے کی کوشش کر رہا ہے مستقل بنیادوں پر صحت۔ اور یہ ٹاکسن بس راستے میں آجاتے ہیں۔

آپ جانتے ہیں ، وہ اپنے اندر بہت ساری خوفناک چیزیں کرتے ہیں کہ ہمیں واقعی نہیں معلوم ہوتا ہے کہ کیا ہو رہا ہے جب تک کہ جب تک آپ واقعی میں برا محسوس نہ کریں تب تک اس میں دیر ہوجائے گی۔ اور ہم صرف اس لحاظ سے بہتر محسوس کرنا چاہتے ہیں۔ لہذا اگر ہم اس چیز کو راستے سے ہٹاتے ہیں تو ، ہم ڈیٹاکسیف کرتے ہیں ، آپ جانتے ہو ، چاہے یہ اورکت سونا ہے ، آپ جانتے ہو ، جب میں انتہائی مشورہ دینے کی سفارش کرتا ہوں تو ، نیاسین سونا پروٹوکول ، آپ جانتے ہو ، مثالی طور پر ایک پریکٹیشنر کے ساتھ ، پروٹوکول کو خاص طور پر سمجھتے ہیں۔

لیکن اگر آپ دیکھتے ہیں کہ آپ سے پہلے اور اس کے بعد اعلی پارا ، اعلی لیڈ ، ہائی کیڈیمیم ، ان میں سے کوئی بھی ہے ، اور آپ یہ کرتے ہیں کہ ٹیسٹ سے پہلے ، آپ کو ایک نرمی سے کہنا پڑتا ہے ، آپ جانتے ہیں ، ہیوی میٹل چیشن کے عمل ، آپ کو معلوم ہے ، آپ کی سفارش کرتے ہیں ، مثال کے طور پر ، کوئکسلور سائنٹیفک میں ڈاکٹر کرس شیڈ ، وہ لیمڈ مولڈ ڈیٹاکس دونوں کے ساتھ اس محاذ پر غیر معمولی ہیں ، لائم والے لوگوں کو زیادہ سڑنا اور بھاری دھات کی حساسیت حاصل ہوتی ہے۔ اور اس طرح جب آپ سسٹم سے ان کو ہٹانا شروع کردیتے ہیں تو ، محفوظ طریقے سے ، قدرتی طور پر ، نرمی سے آپ اس عمل سے گزرتے ہیں ، آپ کو اپنی صحت کے بہت سارے دوسرے پہلوؤں ، اپنی توانائیوں ، آپ کی نیند میں بہتری محسوس ہوگی۔

اور مائٹوکونڈریا اس کی کلید ہیں۔ ہمیں واقعی طور پر مائٹوکونڈریا کو ایندھن میں مدد کرنے اور ان کی مرمت اور بہتر طریقے سے جو ممکنہ طور پر ہم کر سکتے ہیں اس کی بحالی میں مدد کرنے کی ضرورت ہے۔ اور یہاں بہت آسان طریقے ہیں کہ آپ یہ کرسکتے ہیں ، لیکن یہ جانچ پڑتال اور یہ سمجھنے کے کہ آپ کے ہارمون کہاں ہیں۔ آپ جانتے ہو ، مثال کے طور پر ، خواتین کی حیثیت سے ، آپ اس خوبصورت ہارمونل سائیکل سے گزرتے ہیں اس معنی میں ، ہر ماہواری کے ہر چاند کے چکر میں اتار چڑھاو ہوتا ہے ، اور یہ بہت خوبصورت ہے۔ اور ہم مرد ، ہمارا رجحان ہے… ہمارے پاس اتار چڑھاؤ ہیں ، لیکن ہم صرف ، آپ جانتے ہیں ، اس طرح اپنی رفتار سے چلتے ہیں ، اور ہم مختلف مراحل یا عمروں میں چوٹیوں اور قطروں کا شکار ہو سکتے ہیں۔

لیکن ایک خوبصورت نسائی سائیکل کے ساتھ ، آپ کو واقعی دیکھنا ہوگا ، مثال کے طور پر ، ایک ایسا نام ہے جس کو تشخیصی پینل کہا جاتا ہے۔ اور اب یہ حقیقت میں آپ کے پورے دور سے تھوک ہارمون کے تجزیے کا سراغ لگاتا ہے ، نہ صرف اسنیپ شاٹ کے۔ یہ ایک ایسی چیز ہے جسے میں بہت سارے گاہکوں کی طرح دیکھ رہا ہوں ، “اوہ ، میرا ایسٹروجن ٹھیک ہے ، میرا ٹیسٹوسٹیرون ٹھیک ہے ، ایسٹراڈیول ٹھیک ہے ، یہ سب اچھا نظر آتا ہے ،” اور پھر بھی وہ ان تمام ہارمونل رکاوٹیں تبدیل کر رہے ہیں۔ لہذا میں نے عام طور پر ان کو یہ ٹیسٹ کرانے کی ہدایت کی ہے۔ اور وہ پورے چاند کے چکر میں اتار چڑھاؤ دیکھتے ہیں ، اور وہ سمجھتے ہیں ، اوہ ، تو اسنیپ شاٹ پر یہ ٹھیک معلوم ہوتا ہے ، لیکن چند ہفتوں بعد ، سائیکل کا ایک مختلف حصہ ، یہ الگ ہے ، اور اس کی نلی میں ایک رشتہ ہے ہارمون چینلز

اور اگر آپ ہارمونز کو صحیح طریقے سے تیار نہیں کررہے ہیں تو ، آپ ان کا صحیح استعمال نہیں کررہے ہیں ، آپ ان کو مناسب طریقے سے میٹابولائزنگ یا نکالنا بھی نہیں کررہے ہیں ، یہ نلیوں میں موجود ان کنکھوں کو تلاش کرنے کے ل three تین مختلف کلیدی شعبے ہیں اور اس کو ختم کرنا چاہئے۔ لہذا ہر چیز بہت خوبصورتی سے بہتی ہے تاکہ اسے ہارمون تیار کرنے کے لئے ایندھن فراہم کرے ، اس کو مناسب طریقوں سے استعمال کرنے کی اہلیت حاصل ہوسکے ، اور اس معنی میں اس کو صحیح طریقے سے نکالنے کی صلاحیت بھی ہو۔ اور ، آپ جانتے ہو ، میری بیوی ایک دلچسپ مثال ہے ، دونوں ہی ہارمونز میں بھی اور بھاری دھاتی زہریلا بھی۔ آپ جانتے ہو ، وہ واقعی گہرے پارے اور زہریلے کی وجہ سے چند سالوں سے اندھا ہوچکا تھا۔ اور نوآبادیات سے لے کر کافی انیما سے لے کر گلوٹاتھیوئن تک اور اس کے علاوہ اس حیرت انگیز چیزوں کی ایک صف سے اس پورے عمل میں اس نے قدرتی طور پر اپنے آپ کو ٹھیک کردیا۔ اس نے واقعی اس کی ساری زندگی کو تبدیل کردیا اور اس کی نگاہ دوبارہ حاصل کی ، اور اسی لحاظ سے اس کی صحت بحال ہوگئی۔ اور ہارمونل کنکشن اس کی کلید تھا۔

اور اسے اس امتحان کے بارے میں نہیں معلوم تھا جب ہم ملتے تھے اس لئے میں اس کی آزمائش کروا لیتی ، اور ہم نے اس میں اس کی مدد کی۔ اور ہم نے سڑنا چیک کیا اور ہم نے بھاری دھات کے پینلز کو چیک کیا۔ ہم تب سے اس کی نگرانی کر رہے ہیں۔ اور بیس غذائی اجزا بھی ، آپ جانتے ہو ، مائکروٹرنٹیننٹ کافییتا پینل میرے مطلق پسندیدہ میں سے ایک ہے ، میں اس سے لیبارٹری کے طور پر اسپیکٹرا سیل کی سفارش کرتا ہوں۔ اور وہ گزرتے ہیں اور وہ اومیگا فیٹی ایسڈ کے بہت سے مختلف عناصر ، وٹامنز ، معدنیات ، اور غذائی اجزاء کو دیکھتے ہیں۔ آپ واقعی دیکھ سکتے ہیں کہ آپ کے پاس بہت زیادہ کیا ہے ، جو آپ کے پاس کافی نہیں ہے ، اور جو آپ بالکل ٹھیک ہیں۔ اور یہی وہی سپیکٹرم ہے جسے آپ دیکھنا چاہتے ہیں۔

اور پھر ممکنہ طور پر قدرتی طریقوں کے ذریعہ ، غذا کے ذریعہ ، طرز زندگی ، ورزش ، تکمیل کے ذریعہ اس کی مدد کریں اگر یہ آپ کے لئے معنی رکھتا ہے ، اور یہ اس پہلو کی تائید کرنے میں مدد کرے گا اور ، آپ کو معلوم ہے کہ ، مائیکوچنڈریل سطح پر گہرائی سے ، گہرائی سے شفا ہے۔ چونکہ مائٹوکونڈریل سطح اجتماعی اکائی کے طور پر جسم میں عضو کی صحت کے ہر ابھرتے ہوئے نظام کے ذریعے واقعی راستے میں گھوم جاتی ہے۔ لہذا ڈیٹاکس پینل ، ہارمون پینل ، مائکروونٹریننٹ کافیی پنیاں میرے کچھ مطلق پسندیدہ ہیں۔ اور یہاں کچھ نامیاتی ایسڈ ٹیسٹ جیسے ہیں ، مثال کے طور پر ، یا ڈچ ٹیچ ، یہ آپ کو ہارمونل جلانے کے مختلف پہلوؤں سے ، آپ کو ادورکک تھکاوٹ کی تفصیلات کے واقعی حیرت انگیز پہلو دیتے ہیں۔

اور جب آپ ان چیزوں کو ذرا تھوڑا سا ، صرف اتنا ہی ٹوکنا شروع کردیتے ہیں ، حتی کہ آپ جانتے ہو ، ایک یا دو ٹیسٹ سے آپ کو اس بات کی بہت اچھی بصیرت ملے گی کہ آپ اس صحت میں فطری طور پر اپنی صحت کو کس حد تک بہتر بنانا شروع کرسکتے ہیں۔ اور آپ دوسرا ٹیسٹ کر سکتے ہیں ، آپ جانتے ہو ، چاہے وہ دو یا تین ماہ بعد ہو اور موازنہ کریں اور ، آپ جانتے ہو ، کیا آپ بہتر کر رہے ہیں ، کیا آپ نہیں؟ کیا آپ نمو کے ساتھ آگے بڑھے ہیں یا آپ کا جسم سلامتی سے پیچھے ہٹ رہا ہے؟ اور واقعتا understanding یہ سمجھنا کہ آپ اعصابی نظام میں لڑائی یا پرواز کے ردعمل سے کیسے نکل سکتے ہیں اور اس معنی میں دماغ کو پرسکون کر سکتے ہیں۔

آپ ان ایڈرینلز کو دوبارہ چارج اور پھر سے جوان کردیتے ہیں ، آپ کو یہ رواج ملتا ہے ، روایتی چینی طب سے ، آپ جانتے ہیں ، فلسفہ۔ آپ نے یہ دیکھا کہ بورڈ میں ، اور آپ واقعی محسوس کریں گے کہ آپ کی غذا اور طرز زندگی اور آپ کے ماحول میں سب سے چھوٹی ایڈجسٹمنٹ آپ کی صحت کو اس لحاظ سے بالکل بدل دے گی کیونکہ ماحول ہمیں شکل دیتا ہے۔ اگر ماحول زہریلا ہے تو ، ہمیں اس میں اپنے آپ کو مدد فراہم کرنے اور تقویت دینے کی ضرورت ہے اور اپنے جسم کے قدرتی سم ربائی نظاموں کی مدد کرنے میں مدد کی ضرورت ہے۔ اور اس سے ہر ابھرتے ہوئے نظام کے چکر کو آگے بڑھانے میں مدد ملے گی اور آپ کا مائٹوکونڈریہ بہت خوش ہو گا اور آپ کا جسم مجموعی طور پر شاندار اور پیار کرنے والی زندگی کو مکمل طور پر بہتر بنائے گا۔

کیٹی: مجھے یہ پسند ہے۔ اور میں جانتا ہوں کہ میرے ناظرین عام طور پر اوسط سے کہیں زیادہ تعلیم یافتہ ہیں ، اور وہ شاید ان تصورات کو پہلے ہی سمجھ چکے ہیں۔ لیکن ہر ایک کے ل. ، یہ ایک نیا تصور ہے ، میں مائٹوکونڈریل صحت کے خیال پر تھوڑا سا گہرا جانا چاہتا ہوں۔ تو کیا آپ کسی ایسے شخص کے ل a ایک وسیع سطح پر وضاحت کرسکتے ہیں جو اس طرح سے واقف نہیں ہے جیسے مائٹوکونڈریا کیا کرتا ہے ، وہ کیا ہیں ، وہ کیا کرتے ہیں ، اور پھر کوئی دوسرا راستہ جس کی وجہ سے ہم ان کی حمایت کرسکیں گے؟ اور ، خاص طور پر ، میں اپنے والدین کے بارے میں سوچ رہا ہوں جو ہمارے بچوں کے لئے سن رہے ہیں جو عام طور پر امید ہے کہ صحت کے بحران سے ٹھیک نہیں ہو رہے ہیں ، لیکن ہم ابتدائی عمر سے ہی ان کے مائٹوکونڈریا کی کس طرح مدد کر سکتے ہیں؟

کالیب: اوہ ، یہ ایک خوبصورت سوال ہے ، کیٹی۔ اور یہ ، آپ جانتے ہیں ، بہت دلچسپ آپ جانتے ہو ، یہ ایک تفریحی بات ہے ، میں اسے ماں کہتی ہوں مائٹکونڈریا اور زندگی کی مائعات۔ یہ واقعی مائٹوکونڈریل فنکشن کے اس منسلک سلسلہ میں جڑتا ہے۔ اور اس طرح مجھے مائٹوکونڈریا کے تھوڑے سے زیادہ محرک پیچیدہ پہلوؤں کو حاصل کروں گا ، لیکن سب سے پہلے اور اہم بات یہ ہے کہ ہم اپنی ماؤں سے اپنے مائٹوکونڈیریل ڈی این اے کے وارث ہیں۔ لہذا اگر آپ سننے والی ماں ہیں تو ، آپ کے پاس آپ کا مائٹوکونڈیریل ڈی این اے ہے جو آپ کو اپنی والدہ سے وراثت میں ملا ہے اور اسی طرح ، لیکن آپ اپنے بچوں کو بھی بھیج دیتے ہیں۔

اور یہ بہت دلچسپ ہے کہ ارتقاء نے کس طرح کا انتخاب کیا ، آپ جانتے ہیں ، ماں کے ساتھ رہنا چاہتے ہیں ، اسے وہاں سے گزرنے دیں ، اور والد جانکاری دیتے ہیں ، جینیاتی مواد۔ اور اس معنوں میں ٹینگو کی ضرورت پڑتی ہے کہ زندگی کا یہ جادو پیدا کریں جو ہمارے پاس اس سیارے پر انسان ہیں۔ اور یہ دیکھنا بہت حیرت انگیز ہے کہ اس سلسلہ میں وقت کے آغاز تک تمام راستے پر چلنا۔ ایک بار پھر ، وہ معلومات ، وہ جوابات موجود ہیں۔ اور یہ واقعی اگلی نسل کو تربیت اور پروگرامنگ ہے تاکہ تولید اور بقا میں زیادہ لچک اور زیادہ کامیابی حاصل ہو۔ اس لحاظ سے ، آپ زندگی کو پوری طرح سے زندگی گزار سکتے ہیں ، اور آگے بڑھ سکتے ہیں اور اسی دور کو جاری رکھ سکتے ہیں۔ یہ ہیرو کا انسانیت اور واقعی ساری حیاتیاتی زندگی کا ایک سفر نہ کرنے والا آخری سفر ہے۔

اس کے بعد ، مائکچونڈرال خلیے ، وہ ہیں ، آپ کو یاد ہوگا کہ سیل کا پاور ہاؤس ہے۔ آپ جانتے ہو ، وہ اے ٹی پی ، اڈینوسین ٹرائی فاسفیٹ تیار کرتے ہیں ، جو آپ جانتے ہیں ، بنیادی طور پر ہمارے حیاتیات کے ہمارے جسموں کی قدرتی سیلولر توانائی ہے۔ یہ کیفین یا کافی کی طرح نہیں ہے جہاں آپ کو مرکزی اعصابی نظام کی محرک ملتا ہے ، جس سے آپ کو تھوڑا سا چوٹ آتا ہے اور آپ کو یہ خوشی مل جاتی ہے اور یہ بہت اچھا اور لاجواب ہوتا ہے ، اس کا ذائقہ حیرت انگیز ہے۔ لیکن ، آپ ، وقت گزرنے کے ساتھ ، ادورکک تھکاوٹ کا تجربہ کرسکتے ہیں یا آپ کو نیند میں خلل پڑنے کا سامنا ہوسکتا ہے کیونکہ مرکزی اعصابی نظام کو واقعی حد سے بڑھانا صرف اس معنی میں ہی کچھ مشکل مسائل پیش کرسکتا ہے۔

لہذا اگر ہم جسم کی بنیادی سیلولر توانائی پر توجہ مرکوز کرسکتے ہیں ، جس سے مائٹوکونڈریا پیدا ہوتا ہے ، آپ جانتے ہو ، وہ الیکٹرانوں کے شٹلر ہیں ، ٹھیک ہے؟ ہم جو کچھ کھاتے ہیں ، ہم ان میں کھاتے ہیں ، انزائیم اسے ختم کردیتے ہیں ، وہاں یہ تمام خوبصورت پیچیدہ عمل ہیں۔ لیکن اس کا ہدف ، یہ سمجھنے کے لئے واقعی اختتام کا راستہ ہے کہ مائٹوکونڈریا کا کام یہ ہے کہ یہ تمام چھوٹے چھوٹے ٹکڑے ٹکڑے کر کے الیکٹرانوں کی تھوڑی سے توانائی کی اکائیوں میں ٹوٹ جاتے ہیں۔ اور یہ الیکٹران کچھ مختلف مراحل میں گزرے ہیں ، آپ جانتے ہو ، مائٹوکونڈریل کمپلیکس ہے۔ اور وہاں ، آپ جانتے ہو ، ایک سے چار ، ایک سے پانچ تک ، اس پر منحصر ہے کہ آپ کس تحقیق کو دیکھتے ہیں ، لیکن اس سارے عمل کے اختتام پر ، آپ نے کھانے سے نکالنے والے الیکٹرانوں کو لیا ہے اور پھر آپ اس پر عملدرآمد کرتے ہیں ، جس کے بعد پیدا ہوتا ہے۔ ، آپ جانتے ہو ، آسان پانی ، جسے خارج پانی کا پانی کہا جاتا ہے۔ آپ جانتے ہو ، ڈاکٹر جیرالڈ پولیک کی “چوتھے فیز واٹر” میں تحقیق ، اور جو پانی ہم پیتے ہیں اس سے مختلف ہے ، جس کو میں تھوڑا سا بھی چھو سکتا ہوں۔

لیکن پھر آپ نے اے ٹی پی ، اڈینوسائن ٹرائی فاسفیٹ کو تھوک دیا ، جو وہ توانائی ہے جو ہمارے وجود کے ہر دوسرے پہلو کو ایندھن دیتی ہے اور واقعتا ہمیں اس لحاظ سے زندہ رہنے کے لئے متحرک کرتی ہے۔ اور یہ آکسیڈیٹیو عناصر کو بھی چھٹکارا دیتا ہے جو نقصان دہ ثابت ہوسکتا ہے ، آپ جانتے ہو ، یہ کارن جلتی ہوئی گیس کی طرح ہے ، آپ جانتے ہو ، وہاں سے راستہ نکلتا ہے۔ مائٹوکونڈیریل اسی طرح کام کرتا ہے۔ And when you have really awesome mitochondrial function going on, that is literally giving energy to every different cell and every different part of our bodies. And when you optimize mitochondrial function because we discovered…you know, Dr. Douglas Wallace, for example, has incredible research on this and he’s really tied together just about every known chronic disease disorder or challenge that we humans face in health and life and he’s really tied it back to the foundation of mitochondrial function, there always a connection of the mitochondrial function level in there.

So when you focus on that, it’s what I call like a high-leverage strategy because you’ve been focused on supporting your mitochondrial function, and that shuttles electrons more efficiently, which means, also too, when you’re processing electrons through mitochondrial function more efficiently, you’re not storing that excess energy in the form of, guess what, fat. And if you’re having excess weight challenges, there’s water weight and there’s fat weight, but that is all backed-up stored energy is a survival mechanism.

And if your body is in a stress state, your mitochondria are just, you know, dysregulated, not too happy, and they’ve been bombarded by toxins and a lot of different aspects that will break them down, that means you’re producing less energy in the form of ATP, you’re storing more of that energy in fat cells and, you know, all around your body, and you’re also producing more oxidants in that sense, we know about antioxidants, how awesome they are for health in various ways. But if you’re producing more oxidants and less energy, that’s not really a good combo, you know, that’s a car that’s having trouble. You need to take it in and get it checked and tuned up and see what’s going on.

And when you optimize the mitochondrial efficiency, you can get much, much more energy out of much less input. So you might actually eat less food and feel more satiated and you’ll be losing weight and burning fat as fuel for your brain and the rest of your organs in that sense. And that’s where, you know, ketosis can come into play as well if you practice that. But overall, regardless of how you eat or how you live, mitochondria are at the core of what is driving every aspect of a biological function from an energetic perspective, like a physical biophysics energetic perspective. And the cool thing behind that as well is that light, light itself is actually what makes all the switches flip on or off from a genetic level, from an epigenetic level, and for the genome of mitochondria as well.

And so we get proper light that is supporting all the way through. So it’s driven by light, mitochondrial optimization will produce more energy from less input. So you can basically have a way better return on your investment from a biological perspective. And then every other cell can get what it needs. And that cellular hydration, cellular water, we call it exclusion zone water, which very simply means that it keeps the bad stuff out and lets the good stuff in. And when that is really optimal, then you are truly hydrated on the inside of your body, every cell. And metabolic processes can continue and hormones can be produced and utilized, which are all powering your experience.

You know, we are chemists, we have a pharmacy in our brain and in our body and we produce neurochemistry that makes us happy or sad. And different experiences on the spectrum of life, they’re all, you know, adjusted here and there by different aspects. And so the more energy you have, the more repair your body can do, and the more repair your body can do, the more it can upgrade and optimize, and you can build strength, and you can build optimal health in various ways based on your desired outcomes and your goals. And mitochondria are the key to that.

Katie: I love it. So I’m curious with all of your experimentation and research in this area, what diet you’ve personally settled on at this point and what you follow, or maybe it varies, but what do you typically do?

Caleb: So that’s fine, you know, I’ve been through again that the spectrum from super hardcore raw vegan with all the superfoods under the sun and giant Vitamix blender-fulls of, you know, kale, green smoothies, and everything else. And all the way to, you know, the carnivore nose-to-tail type approach. And it’s very fascinating, you know, the original raw approach for me was really fantastic the first year-and-a-half I was doing it, and I lost over 60 pounds, and I just cleared up brain fog, and my skin cleared up. I had great energy, it was fantastic. You know, isn’t sort of the heyday of when raw was starting to take off.

I felt amazing with that, but over time, like the last year-and-a-half of that experiment, I ran for about three years, you know, I actually had quite the crash in health. And I, you know, kinda noticed it when I was in the parking lot of a grocery store in California, and I was munching on some cactus jerky. And one of my back molars just cracked and crumbled in my mouth. And I’m in the backseat of the car, and my friends driving, all of a sudden, my blood’s just pouring out of my mouth, like what just happened here? So I raced to, you know, get to an emergency surgery to take care of that. And that really was an indication that this diet was no longer serving me.

And long story short, I did a lot of research figured it out, and realized that, you know, the high oxalic content of the greens I was having and the lectins and different anti-nutrients to a degree that disrupt some processes within health from a dietary perspective. You know, my methylation pathways, my genetics, they just were not suited to that. And so I had a decrease in bone density, and my testosterone plummeted, you know, I did not feel like a man at all at that time. It was a challenge. I was very happy and very spiritual in that sense, but my body was not happy because it wasn’t able to get the nutrition from what I thought were the most nutrient-dense foods possible into my system, into my cells, and to support my mitochondrial function as best as it could.

And so that led me to diving into biophysics much, much deeper and realizing that the micronutrient sufficiency aspect is a real critical key. And there’s also biological competition, you know, vitamins and minerals sometimes compete within the body. And iron is a good example of that. So if you’re having iron in a multivitamin, it doesn’t really make the most sense, because it actually can compete with at least 18 other vitamins and minerals and nutrients. And that happening in the body is not so fun, you’re essentially, you know, just not utilizing what you think you’re putting in to help in your health in that sense.

And so from there, I switched gears. You know, I’ve had a lot of head injuries over the years, I’ve had over 28 concussions ranging from mild to severe, and done a lot of work on my brain in various ways, brain scanning and all these other really cool aspects to see what’s going on and how I can optimize that function. And I realized that the ketogenic aspect of dietary lifestyle was really powerful in a number of ways. And so I dove into, you know, from the raw days, I jumped into ketosis, and I got into fasting, intermittent fasting. And I started realizing that it was actually quite simple to shift a few things. You know, if I stopped eating food a few hours before I went to bed that my energy levels were much better and my digestive function was much more enjoyable. I didn’t have gas, I didn’t have bloating, I didn’t have these issues.

My brain was much clearer and my sleep quality was just off the charts, and something I tracked on a daily basis and have for many years, I could see that that translation there. And my brain was just on fire in the best of ways. It was clear, it’s focused, you know, struggled with ADD most of my life, but thankfully don’t need medications for it because I’m utilizing dietary aspects and supplements accordingly from nootropics and beyond to essentially optimize each different aspect of that in my brain function. And so from the ketogenic lifestyle, you know, that really turned things around for me and getting into fat as fuel, and just really understanding how the body can utilize these different nutrient elements, and put them to work in the cells and keep the mitochondria happy.

And I went through and after I did that for some years and I put together a large course on that topic, helped a lot of people in that sense of, you know, doing ketosis properly, there’s sort of a good way to do it and there’s some ways that are less than optimal that you’ll see differences in over time and you’ll know how you feel because you might feel great in the beginning but make sure that that’s sustainable for you.

And then I shifted into seasonal cycling of foods. And the concept of it was a really great book, I believe it’s called “The Jungle Diet.” And basically a very simple concept, the author was a genius scientist where she basically just took people she was working with and ran their genetics and found out where they were from, and just switched them to a natural diet that matched where their DNA had the most time spent. You know, if you were from Spanish countries, it would be more to that degree. If you’re Mediterranean, it would be more Mediterranean style. And there’s nothing really fancy about this. It was really just getting on the original foods that the DNA had the most experience with over time, encoding that knowledge of how to use those nutrients in those foods for health. And that radically transformed people’s health across the board.

And so when I looked at where I lived and, you know, the type of light I received, and the type of seasonal cycles, I would switch my food to keep with the seasons. I go to the farmers’ market and get everything fresh and put it together. I love to cook, I’m a crazy foodie geek chef, so I love cooking with new fresh ingredients all the time. And I realized the more in tune with nature I got, the more energy I was able to produce, and the better I was able to sleep, and the more focus that I had.

And from there, I switched over to doing another experiment in the carnivore space. And the carnivore diets are really fascinating when you do it very, very particularly and ideally, a nutrient-dense carnivore aspect. You know, Dr. Paul Saladino is a great speaker on this topic. And I believe he has a book coming out very soon if it’s not out already that’s all about this and the various ways to do it. And the nose-to-tail approach of having the bone marrow and the bone broth and the collagen, and having the organ meats and, you know, heart, kidney, liver, spleen, thyroid, and you can get so many different ones that are from grass-fed animals that are very sustainably produced that are very clean and don’t have any other contaminants in them.

And you mix that in with a carnivore diet, it was really fascinating because I was teaching people ketosis all these years, and some did incredibly well and some had challenges. And after my experiment, you know, it just transformed my health, I got lean and ripped and shredded and it was fantastic, energy was off the charts. I just felt incredible from that. And my lab testing that I do on a regular basis was showing that, you know, lower CRP, lower inflammation markers, higher energy, more nutrient density, you know, a more even harmony across the board of ratios of fatty acids, for example, like omega 3, 6, and 9.

And all these other aspects of, “Okay, there’s something to this here,” and getting to the aspect of biophysics, not to get too deep and geeky with this, but there’s deuterium and deuterium is heavy hydrogen and tying back to mitochondria. When you have, you know, something that’s twice as big and twice as heavy and you try to fit it through one hole that’s not that big and need something of different weight, then it breaks things. And it breaks the nanomotors in mitochondrial function, at the end, it spits out, like, we talked about that ATP and that cellular water and the oxidants that come out as an exhaust aspect of that.

So you’re literally breaking these nanomotors and the mitochondria cells are dying. And deuterium concentrates highly in plant foods and in carbohydrates, for example. And that was what I found fascinating of switching it up a little bit with clients I was working with and training. I was like, “Hey, you know, let’s go and do a carnivore type approach for a short duration of time, sort of like as a prep,” and it was fascinating because carnivore and ketosis are very similar in various ways, but the key to them is that they actually help you deplete the deuterium in your tissues. You need a little deuterium, it’s not the most bad stuff ever. You need it to drive growth in a lot of different ways to maintain health, but we have way too much of it these days.

And when you deplete that out naturally, that’s actually the fundamental underpinning of the biophysics of why and how ketosis works and carnivore as well. So when you get these rich, nutrient dense, you know, high-fat, great quality grass-fed meats across the board and nutrient-dense organ meats, your body really knows what to do with those because that’s what we have always historically, you know, for the most part and anthropology noted that we’ve eaten, and helped us form the brains we have, and the bodies we have. When you give your body those nutrients, they’re the more bioavailable and more bioidentical. And since your body knows what to do with them, your DNA is a code, a program that says, “I see the nutrients in liver and I can use those nutrients for what I need to do and build inside of biology.”

And that was really fascinating because there’s a much easier approach to help people get into a ketogenic lifestyle, and then more of a cyclical fashion, you know, especially women, you need to cycle things more. Men can get away with just being kind of hardcore carnivore and hardcore keto for a while, but women have, again, that beautiful hormonal cycle you must support. And carbs are necessary for some people in various forms, especially if you’re an athlete in training, you do need to cycle those out too. And so that carnivore connection there was really fascinating and very counterintuitive, you know, coming from this extreme raw vegan type approaches and experiment all the way to, you know, the most opposite you could possibly get of the carnivore approach. But the results were fantastically clear across the board from laboratory testing from how I felt.

And also everyone I worked with, I was just seeing them transform in ways that I didn’t even know we could achieve in that period of time. And it’s just a consistency through and through that the body again knows what to do. And when we get those nutrients in, it connect those up, it’s really fascinating what can happen. And so now, I really cycle these things out. So I’m primarily ketogenic, I do a lot of carnivore, and I still occasionally love to have my cake and eat it too. You know, I’m gluten-sensitive, dairy-sensitive in various ways, but I’ve optimized my digestion to a degree that I can enjoy certain things.

You know, fun little treat, for example, I love Mexican food and tacos, and they have these churros, which are sort of a deep-fried, glutinous, sugar-covered thing with a dulce de leche caramel sauce, and they’re fantastically delicious. I’m not able to have them all the time because they would kind of KO me for a few days, very sensitive to those things. But really, again, just how we go back to realizing what’s working, what’s not in anything we do, and anything we change in our lifestyle and health, we realized that, “Okay, if we improve digestion, we can actually handle a little bit more of the things that we may be sensitive to outside of that.” And so that was kind of a test for me after the carnivore experiment was how good is my gut health, you know, strength and resilience in my gut, how’s that doing and how am I digesting things?

And so I had those churros at the taco place, and it was so delicious. It was wonderful. But the craziest thing it is that it did not affect me negatively at all. You know, the first time, I was like, “Wow, actually, I can have this and enjoy it every now and then,” but it’s not a consistent thing. And so when I stick to the real foods and certain ones cooked, certain ones not cooked, you want to have a mix of those things. The enzymes are a really critical, important part of that too. But again, that nutrient density giving the body the healthy fats to burn as fuel, that upregulates mitochondrial function. You have more energy, you have better digestion, you can absorb more nutrients in the gut and beyond. You can produce all those chemicals that all lead to joy and bliss in daily life.

Katie: I love that. And a couple of key takeaways that really resonated with me is, like, you’re explaining this in a framework of people being able to figure out an experiment and figure out the things that work for them. Because I’m sure, like you’re in the health world as well, I often get the question, you know, what do you do in this instance, or what specifically do you take, or what does your typical day look like, or what do you eat? And I always say, that’s the wrong question because I’ve only figured that out for me. And each of us has to begin that process and figure out, and it’s always changing.

That’s the beauty of it is even if you figure it out, it changes seasonally, it changes, like you said, hormonally for women. So we’re in a constant journey and evolution of this. I’m also a big fan of cycling things and not doing anything all the time. I’m personally a big believer that the body can adapt very quickly to things, and I don’t want mine to get used to getting any supplement every single day, or getting any food every single day, or even getting food, in general, every single day. So I mix up a lot with diet and supplements and fasting and that’s something that you do as well.

Our haircare is free of harmful ingredients and contains ingredients like lavender and nettle to support healthy hair! Be the first to try it at wellnesse.com

And you also mentioned, I wanna go back to the idea of fight-or-flight and sympathetic versus parasympathetic because I think that’s an important key that a lot of us miss. You could have everything else dialed in, and this was me for years, you can have your diet dialed in and perfect. You can be exercising, you can have sleep dialed in. If you don’t address whatever the stress whether it’s cellular, whether it’s emotional, whatever it is, if you are in fight-or-flight, you’re not gonna see the biggest benefit from any of those things. So I’m curious if you have anything that you have found or any series of things that have been helpful with that or any tips for people adopting the mental framework for being able to make these changes and to remain in parasympathetic?

Caleb: Absolutely. Yeah. And part of that is exactly what you just said, tying in the nervous system, is taking those breaks and cycling things on a regular basis. I do the same, you know, I take a break from all supplements. I can take a break from all food, you know, the fasting periods, and you cycle that through. And that is something that is really key and critical for giving your nervous system when it needs to relax. And there are so many simple things you can go from very simple to, you know, just laying down and getting horizontal. You know, with my wife that was actually one challenge that she had of these chronic sneezing fits because her body was sort of locked into this stressed state in the nervous system. It was always thinking it was under attack and under, you know, some sort of threat at all times.

And I just noticed that she had the sneezing attacks, and I said, you know, “Honey, if you just lay down, just lay down.” She’s like, “What do you mean?” She’s sneezing, you know, intensely, and it’s really challenging. She can barely talk, her eyes are watering. And I just told her lay down, and she laid down. And when you lay down, your vagus nerve sends a signal that’s essentially like, okay, we’re laying down, that means it’s safer than standing up, very simply. And that laying down her sneezing texture disappeared, they just stopped entirely. And I had her stand back up and they came back.

And so, again, that clued me into realizing, okay, there’s a pattern here. And that pattern is that your nervous system thinks and believes it’s in fight-or-flight right now. That’s a very stressful state to be in, very high cortisol state, which is very oxidative and very stressful on the cells and the rest of your body, and your mitochondria working overtime to try to support that. And you can all the way go to, for example, the biomedical technology world. There’s one incredible one which is called microcurrent therapy, and it uses electricity, again, one of the natural forces, electricity, magnetism, gravity, pressure, all these natural forces of physics of what govern our environment that shapes us and how our bodies operate, and also how the nervous system ties in.

And with that, they actually go through and they can help your nervous system essentially calm down and relax and using electrical stimulation to tell the vagus nerve in other parts of your body, whether it’s your gut, or whether it’s your brain. Various different people have different challenges there, they’ll put you into the same state. And a technology like that, which is a bit more advanced, but they can go through and do a few sessions on you and your body actually is like okay, yes, I can relax and I can, you know, let go of that stress. And a lot of it’s very mental and psychological too.

So, you know, if you don’t feel appreciated, if you don’t feel loved, if you don’t feel supported in various ways, whether it’s your partner, whether it’s your family dynamic, whether it’s your friends or community, the work you do, there’s many different angles of life that affect us in these ways. And any of these aspects that stress us out, it changes everything from our breathing to our heart rate variability to our nervous system response to what it’s thinking, threats or not. And so really creating however you can in your environment safety in a safe place. And a great place to start is the bedroom. You know, make it pitch black dark as you can, lock the door, if you have to. You know, if you have wonderful, furry pets to sleep with, that’ll actually help you sleep better as well because they act as a guard, they’re able to hear things and sense things before you can. So you can actually sleep deeper and they’ve done some fascinating studies on this.

And you can see how these different connections all together create a comfortable environment for you to sleep and relax and recover. And that’s one of the highest leverage areas you can focus on is optimizing your sleep cycle and your sleep protocol in that sense. And getting that nervous system out of fight-or-flight is really key. But, again, going out and getting light in your eyes, light on your skin, your feet grounded to the earth, breathing so many deep breaths, you know, you can breathe in for four seconds and breathe out for six seconds. That’s a very simple one that anyone can do to calm your heart rate down and increase your coherence.

And the coherence level of your heart rate variability is what is gonna allow your body to realize that it is safe to operate, it is safe to rejuvenate repair. And you don’t have to be in this chronic stressed state of fight-or-flight or what’s going on here. There are so many angles to it. If you need to go walk in nature, go walk in nature. You know, if you wanna relax and watch a movie, you can watch a movie. Really, it depends on where you are, where you live, you know, how you live your lifestyle. But there’s always a way to figure out even if it’s as simple as laying down flat for 15, 20 minutes, you know.

And another great one is to lay down flat on your back and put your knees up onto a chair. And you’re kind of sitting in a chair but laying backwards. And when you’re doing that, you’re allowing the blood flow to circulate in a way that lets your body calm down and relax and get that response back into that rejuvenating stimulatory in a positive way. And not overstimulated in a stressful response of the nervous system being like, “Oh, no, what’s happening?” We wanna get out of that and we want to get into the rest and relax, and the rest and digest, you know, some people refer to it as, and that that calm, stable, resilient sense of you can handle anything at any time, no matter what life throws you.

Katie: Such good advice. And I’m curious if there’s any tips you would give for those listening who are hopefully not dealing with a major health crisis but want to, for instance, put off aging as long as possible. Are there any practical takeaways or tips that you would give for that?

Caleb: Oh, for sure. So, you know, really, again, you know, going from the bottom of the hierarchy up on the spectrum of, you know, really getting your diet adjusted to your lifestyle, what you need. Having that real, whole food, having, you know, whether it’s carnivore ketogenic, how you choose to play around, just really nutrient-dense foods, organic when possible, having the grass-fed, grass-finished meats. You know, going through, get that nutrient density from the bone marrow, the organ meats, you know, all that stuff supports methylation as well and detoxification pathways in addition to that.

And you’ve got supplementation, you know, there’s supplements out there. For example, like marine phytoplankton is almost like pure ATP, it’s like sunshine in a bottle. You can actually take a supplement like this, which is what helps whales grow to the size and strength that they are in the oceans, and you can really see how your body can utilize that as pure energy put in, doesn’t cost much ATP in your body to use the ATP that is produced in a supplement like that. It’s from a whole food source. And there’s many other versions of that and good high-quality oils and good high-quality fats across the board dietarily, and shaping your environment, and really just getting that safety, like we talked about, however you can. Start in the bedroom if you can and move out from there.

You know, technology is another big stressor across the board. So if you can block that blue light and you can calm your brain down, calm down your eyes and your mitochondrial cells so they can focus on that optimization is really critical and key. Again, you know, the breathing habits and dialing all the way through to even advanced technologies you can get into from CVAC pods to the NanoVi device is a fantastic one that, again, is based on biophysics and health and light in that sense.

And all the way through just figuring out how to stop eating as much, intermittent fasting-wise, like we don’t need as much food as we think we do. So fasting is one of those critical keys that we have is a built-in program. And even if you stop eating a few hours before bed at night, you’re gonna notice dramatic changes to your weight, to your energy levels, to how radiant you show up, and how much light you shine. Getting in nature, all the way across there, there’s so many different aspects.

You get into the anti-aging longevity aspect of how psyllium metabolism works. There’s a few that are very popular now, so like NMN and NR, for example, nicotinamide mononucleotide is NMN, and nicotinamide riboside is, you know, subtype of B3 vitamin that supports NAD+, NAD function in your cells. And that’s a really critical one. You can go straight to the NAD+ patches, you know, they have these electrophoresis patches with a battery you slap on, it’ll actually help you absorb it transdermally. You can do IV-based therapy with that too, but it is a very intensive therapy that not everyone has access to just yet.

But really getting those key nutrients, getting connected with nature, getting in tune and in touch with your own intuition and connecting with the natural cycles of light, of time, of geomagnetic location of where you are in the earth, and ideally aligning that to your genetics and also to what’s available in your local foodshed and having that clean water as well. You know, it’s spring water, you know, ideally, just good, clean, fresh water across the board help heal you in that sense all the way through.

And you can go through from, you know, hot and cold therapy, you know, if you get the sauna, you got that great detox and the heat stress and heat-shock proteins and great detox effects from that. And you can go through Wim Hof style, you can get in the cold. You know, if it’s wintertime where you are, you can do a cold plunge. You can go to a spa that might have a cold water pool you can get into, and that training, even a cold shower for five minutes in the morning will have so many great benefits for you and help build willpower and build resilience and build strength. You know, if you can do that and get up in the morning, and breathe and meditate if you like, have some good food, or not at all if you’re intermittent fasting, have a cold shower for even a few minutes at a time, all those little steps add up to much, much bigger compounded wins and synergies all throughout life.

And all of that confers to longevity and the sort of anti-aging type approach because we have the intelligence to do that, we need to get out the toxins, and we need to get in the nutrients, and we need to get in the light, and we need to keep that stimulation of stem cell proliferation and psyllium metabolism optimized. And, again, mitochondrial health is super key to that and light is what’s driving all of that from genetics all the way up the chain.

Katie: I love it. This has been so much information and so practical and actionable. I’ll make sure that I will link to…I know you have information on a lot of these topics, and I also do, those who will be linked in the show notes at wellnessmama.fm. So if you guys are listening, make sure to find all of them linked there. Another question I love to ask at the end of episodes, if there’s a book or a number of books that have really dramatically impacted your life, if so, what are they and why?

Caleb: Oh, so, you know, one of them is gonna be the notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci, funny enough, it’s about 16,000 pages long. So, maybe not everyone’s personal read or very accessible, but one that is, that is a really huge game-changer for understanding how light affects health is a book called “Health and Light” by John Ott, J-O-H-N O-T-T is his last name. And he actually was a time-lapse photographer and cinematographer. And he actually worked on “The Secrets of Life” documentary with Disney and did segments for that back in 1956, the year my mom was born.

And I got into that book and I’m studying mitochondrial function, how light affects health, and he just noticed it from observation. You know, even all those years back he sees that, wow, if I have this type of lighting, this tomato grows bigger or smaller. And he worked with full-spectrum lighting and he’s like, “When I just put it in the sun, it grew larger and stronger. So what about me as a living being, like if I get more light, will that help my health?” And so he really goes through and breaks down very simply how light affects health in those various ways. And we’ve learned so much more scientifically beyond that. So I highly recommend “Health and Light” by Dr…he’s not a doctor, but cinematographer John Ott. It’s a huge, huge one.

And then, you know, another one “Iconoclast” by Gregory Berns is a fantastic one from a neuroscience perspective of just how you can live a great life and really have these iconic thinking moments, no matter where you are. But it’s such a powerful influence to think bigger and go bigger, in a sense, that you can do so much more with your life if you want. And wherever you are, you can be happy and be still and be at peace within yourself. You know, the work of Byron Katie, for example, on the psychological aspect of, you know, the stories our minds create, you know, are they true, are they not? Her work is very profound from a psychological wellness perspective. And again, that nervous system, calming the nervous system down from the mind is a key.

And there’s so many more, I could go on and on, but again, understanding evolutionary psychology and biology is really fun. If you’re a geek and you want to get into it, all these things tie together, and you’ll see the patterns coalesce. And you’ll start seeing, you know, essentially the code of the matrix of really how you can make different choices big or small, along the spectrum and identifying how you can live the best healthiest, happiest, most joyous and blissful life possible, and still be productive, and rock and roll and have so much fun, and also support and take care of those you love and those you serve.

Katie: I love it. Caleb, we’ll have links in the show notes, but where can people find you to keep learning?

Caleb: Yeah. So I have some information at calebjennings.com, I’ll be updating that soon with some more details. As well as, you know, you can go find some more intel, I’m going to be producing a lot more content through Activation Products. You can go to activationproducts.com/wellnessmama for more intel and details on that. And we have some really great content coming out to help educate about these base elements. And, again, all these aspects of biohacking, the holistic integration of how you can optimize health in various different ways, like we’ve been speaking about here, to supplementation, nootropics, all the way to advanced medical technologies and beyond.

But it’s all interconnected, and we’re all connected in that sense. So if you approach life with that, with, you know, just joyous mentality and having fun experimenting, trying new things here and there, getting outside your comfort zone, that’s where growth occurs. And that’s what I encourage you to do on a daily basis and just have so much fun with it.
