Woohoo. My final day on this fast. What's the verdict?

Are you interested? Visit ProLon for 10% off and use the code TONY10. In the UK, visit ProLon UK here and use code TW10

ProLon is the first and only clinically tested, fasting program. ProLon’s breakthrough nutri-technology was researched for over 20 years and developed by Dr. Longo at The Longevity Institute at the University of Southern California with tens of millions of dollars in funding support from the National Institutes of Health.

In 2018, TIME Magazine nominated Dr. Longo to be among the top 50 most influential people in health.

 

Sign up on the site and get exclusive extra content, a regular ‘3 Zesty Things' newsletter and slightly blurry shots taken on my phone.

DEAL OF THE WEEK:

We all cheat sometimes. So it just makes sense to have a way to maintain healthy blood sugar day in, day out, even if you have an “off” day.

That’s why I recommend a product called Blood Sugar Breakthrough by BiOptimizers. This easy to take supplement is the result of numerous tests to find the absolute best formula for maintaining healthy blood sugar. In fact, BiOptimizers went through 5 different formulations before landing on this one.

Blood Sugar Breakthrough works to safely lower blood sugar after meals so that you can maintain a healthy weight and redirect carbs to your muscles where they can be burned for energy. This means you’ll avoid the worst effects of high blood sugar — like weight gain — while enjoying more stable energy, mental clarity, and fewer cravings.

For an exclusive offer for my listeners just go to www.bloodsugarbreakthrough.health/zestology and save 10 percent with code ZESTOLOGY10 then you try Blood Sugar Breakthrough.

Are your adrenaline levels too high? Probably. But how do you bring them down? 

This podcast explains why people produce this "fight-or-flight" hormone even when they are not facing danger. It presents a natural protocol for rapidly reducing excess adrenaline. I'm 100% doing this.

Dr. Michael Platt is board certified in Internal Medicine and has nearly four decades of experience working with patients in varied clinical settings from medical groups to elder care medicine to health research. He has also written the best-selling book on Amazon on the topic of... adrenaline!

Today's guest has been feted by everyone from Prince Charles to The Guardian newspaper.

He represents one of the deepest thinkers we've had on Zestology, and I wanted to explore with him what type of life we want to lead in 5, 10, and 20 years time.

His book Post Growth explores everything from living through a pandemic, what really matters, whether capitalism is broken and other topics of proper depth.

Stick with it as you'll love it.

I started by asking him a worrying question which was on my mind.

NAD pops up again and again in the biohacking world, so I thought it only right I investigate further. We've already interviewed Dr. David Sinclair who raves about it, and now it's time to go deep with Dr. Nichola Conlon.

More about Nichola. She is:

Dr. Steven Eisenberg is one of my favourite former Zestology guests.

His interview on Zestology last time kick-started his writing career. He got a big book deal, and he's now brought his own book out.

We recorded this just before Love Is the Strongest Medicine: Notes from a Cancer Doctor on Connection, Creativity, and Compassion came out - it's out now.

And what's more he is a big fan of my new book, as you'll hear.

And this was recorded for both podcasts. So it also features a number of my favourite hacks and tips from my new book on energy.

Today we devote a whole section to that most noble of causes: hacking hangovers and staying energized even when drinking alcohol (responsibly, of course).

Why the title of the podcast? Listen on to find out.

I am unfortunately Mr. Sensitive these days when it comes to booze. Maybe it’s an age thing. Or maybe I always was a lightweight. But just like many people, I still do want the occasional drink. You may do as well.

It turns out there are some unusual, radical hacks you can employ to drink cleaner and feel better the next day. Sure, alcohol can be toxic. But so can oxygen, water and even carrots in the wrong dosage. (Some years ago, an unfortunate death did actually happen due to the overconsumption of carrots.) All this tells us that dosage is everything. When you get your alcohol intake right, a review of the literature shows it can boost your overall happiness, euphoria, and pleasant, carefree feelings (1). Sounds good, right?

Of course, the best way for us all to avoid that hangover feeling is to not drink in the first place. If you’ve got some meh going on and are also drinking more than a couple of drinks a night or a couple of times a week, you need to cut it down. This is the first lifestyle change you’re going to want to make. Get specialist help if you need. Lecture over.

Today's guest has more than a million followers on Instagram. John Jaquish is a Wall Street Journal Best Selling author and also invented a revolutionary home fitness system that helps you put on muscle. Which is handy when the gyms are closed.

He's very controversial. You will agree with some of what he says. You’ll disagree with other bits.

We started off by talking about his book, which is number one in it’s category, and has taken Amazon by storm.

Today's podcast partner - check them out!

P3OM are probiotics that improve your digestion and nutrient absorption, helping ensure your digestive tract and immune system stay strong and healthy.

While many other probiotics on the market don’t even survive your own stomach acid, P3OM is fully tested to make sure the probiotic strains not only survive in your body, but also don’t compete with each other -- so you're as protected as possible from the growth of bad bacteria and other pathogens.

While other probiotics require refrigeration, and often die in transport and on the shelf, P3OM doesn’t need refrigeration at all. It's also been clinically proven to give you more energy, less bloating, more mental clarity, and to shift your metabolism into fat-burning mode.

So if you’re ready to boost your immune system, have healthier digestion and burn the fat, go to bioptimizers.com/zestology

Asthma and allergies are on the rise along with other ailments caused by polluted indoor air; such as headaches, dizziness, depression, respiratory infections, throat and ear infections, colds and flu.

The WHO has listed air quality as the single biggest environmental threat to public health. The air we breathe is directly linked to our health. Poor quality air is consistently linked to a laundry-list of health complaints. But what about our mood and energy? If avoiding getting sick, less allergies, and improved sleep counts as managing meh, then cleaner air works.

If you live on a busy road with lots of traffic, this is especially important. And while most of us think that air pollution is something that happens outside, 90% of our time is on average spent indoors. And the air we breathe inside is often even worse. It can be up to five times more polluted with mold, chemical gases, carpet fibers, dust, bacteria, viruses, pollution and toxins from overcooked food (a big one).

I use an Air Angel, mainly in my bedroom, and I genuinely have noticed a difference in my stuffy nose levels (technical term) overnight. It's awesome. My sleep’s improved considerably. The first time I used it I felt like I’d been breathing in lovely cool forest air all night. Their technology was originally developed by NASA and the research shows that it kills 99 percent of allergens, odors, germs, and viruses including, incredibly, Covid 19. Check out the research on their site. There’s a 10% discount code at this link

And David Milburn is an air expert at Air Angel, and he's my guest today. 

Talking of breathing in good stuff.... today's podcast partner is the completely natural and incredible Fum.

  • Fum is a natural inhaler made sustainably in Canadian from Canadian Maple
  • Easy, portable, and efficient access to the benefits of our world's super plants. 
  • Sample some of these flavours...
    • Peppermint - for energy, focus, and aids breathing
    • Eucalyptus - for stress relief, decongestion, antimicrobial, and aids breathing
    • Lavender - for improving mood, relaxation, sleep, and brain function
    • Black Pepper - natural craving reducer for nicotine, great for quitting smoking. 

And lots more. Check out FUM here and get a good Zestology discount too.

Today, everything you need to know about beautiful essential oils.

I started on this podcast by reminiscing on a particular smell from my own past which will make you chuckle.

Braeden Pauls is the CEO of FÜM, a fantastic company that sells essential oil inhalers. Check them out (and look out for a future partnership with Zestology.

On essential oils: Every essential oil has specific benefits to the human body, naturally supporting body functions, such as immunity, cognitive processing, and emotional health. The aromatic benefits of essential oils are easily accessible by inhalation through their quick evaporation. Essential oils are a pure extract of plants that can be used to support the natural systems in the human body through inhalation. 

There’s never a bad time to boost your immune system. But I don’t need to tell you how important a strong immune system is right now, given the global health crisis that’s spreading across the planet.

Today's podcast partner:

P3OM are probiotics that improve your digestion and nutrient absorption, helping ensure your digestive tract and immune system stay strong and healthy.

Laura is an author, journalist and nutritional therapist (Dip ION) with over 10 years experience. Her features have appeared in The Sunday TimesTatlerThe Mail on Sunday, PsychologiesCosmopolitanStylist and Healthy. She has also shared my health tips on national radio programs and recently appeared on The Truth about Cancer, which was viewed by 5 million.

Topics for discussion:

The world has changed beyond measure in the last 100 years. 80, 000 new chemicals have been pumped into our environment since 1900, contributing to skyrocketing rates of asthma, allergies, anxiety, cancer and hormonal imbalance.

The good news? Small changes to your everyday lifestyle – like putting down the phone and plugging your feet into the earth – can make a dramatic difference to your long term health.

Affordable, easy to make meals – when you’ve come home from work stressed out and starving – will also keep your immune system humming and hormones balanced.

Today we are finding foodie joy.

Eve Turow-Paul is the author of a new book called Hungry, and she's a brilliant guest. Here are some of her areas of expertise that you will love. 

  • The connection between the “death” of the cereal industry and access to work email on our smartphones
  • How posting images of our dinners on social media both fulfills and feeds our hunger for human connection in an increasingly isolated world
  • The ways “diet tribes” and boutique fitness gyms substitute for organized religion 
  • How access to round-the-clock news relates to the blowback against GMO foods
  • Wellness retreats, astrology, plant parenthood, and other methods of easing modern anxiety
  • Why “eating local” might be the key to solving not just climate change, but our current global sense of disconnection

Troscriptions is the nootropic company started by Dr Ted Achacoso, and they make Blue Cannatine. 

It helps you with focus and energy, and... turns your tongue blue!

It's pretty powerful and contains a number of strong performance enhancers including nicotine, caffeine, and methylene blue. So what's it like, is it safe, and what can it do for us?

Dr Ted is the founder of a practice called health optimization medicine that focuses on personalized medicine based on genetics, lifestyle, and more. And he's big on nootropics which enhance cognitive function, increase oxygen flow to the brain, and improve all sorts of areas like focus.

How's your lockdown going? Finding it hard to stop raiding the treats cupboard? Yep, me too. So today, we focus on.

  • The integrity of one’s diet.
  • The impact of too many sugary treats on your immune system (oh dear!)
  • Preventative strategies to stay healthy.
  • Could intermittent fasting help during lockdown?
  • The joy of carbs!
  • The quality of one’s news sources.
  • The people you follow who will give you good information.

We recorded this since the pandemic took hold, and the importance of diet can’t be understated. So I'm joined by the Ketologist, Chris Irvin - spoiler, he may be "The Ketologist" but he's not all about keto.

Lots of people ask me how they can track their own health and wellness. What are the markers you should look out for, and how can you interpret the results.

So today, in part 2 of my interview with the wonderful Beth O'Hara, we look at what two tests would be a great idea to take, and then I've taken them! So she interprets my results. 

Let's see what she finds...

How many times have you checked your mobile phone in the last hour? Or your email?

Professor Gloria Mark specialises in digital distraction, information overload and how we can adapt our behaviour to be more efficient on a day-to-day basis and more fulfilled too.

She’s looked at the role between Internet access and multi-tasking. (I’m not good at multi-tasking!)

She’s also studied the link between, stress, mood and computer usage. This is fairly astonishing and she goes into it in the podcast.

On this podcast, I receive a transformational breathwork session.  We had a session and then recorded a podcast straight after. I was a bit spaced out as it was a deep experience.

Richard Blake uses bio-hacking and breathwork in a combination of ancient wisdom, personal spirituality and modern science to help people to transform their lives. His studies of psychotherapy, holistic counselling, nutrition, Reiki, health coaching and functional fitness have given him a holistic understanding of people. By working on a combination of the mind, body and spirit people are able to heal without neglecting one aspect of themselves that would prevent them from realizing their potential.

Richard offers 1-1 breathwork sessions along with holistic counselling for integration and advanced health coaching from Hammersmith.

He’s also into

+ 15 minutes daily on the Joovv redlight

+ the human charger

+ standing on the grounding mat

+ neurofeedback with the Muse Meditation headband....

And lots more… so we had plenty to discuss.

A slightly different format this week. Two authors of the same book, interviewed one after the other. Exciting, eh?
 
It's a podcast about smart people and smart children.
  • How do you define success? 
  • What are some of the basic theories behind creating successful people?
  • How do you cultivate resilience?
  • What role do screens play (or not play) in success?
In The Formula: Unlocking the Secrets to Raising Highly Successful Children, Harvard economist Ronald Ferguson, named in a New York Times profile as the foremost expert on the US educational "achievement gap," along with award-winning journalist Tatsha Robertson, reveal an intriguing blueprint for helping children from all types of backgrounds become successful adults.
 
Ronald is first, and advance warning you'll hear his fax machine go off a couple of times! I didn't know people still used faxes but they do and why not. Ronald is fantastic and so is Tatsha who comes after.
 
It's not all baby-related now I’m having a baby. But some things transcend parenthood, and this subject is relevant for all. But there is some parenthood stuff in there so if that's not your bag I won't be offended if you quietly wait for next week.

And if you like Zestology, you might want to sign up for the Zestology 3 Zesty Things newsletter here. You'll receive a short, concise email from me every Monday with all the latest gadgets, supplements, cutting-edge hacks, observations and general witterings for more energy and vitality.
