It's episode 300 of Zestology... and that means I've been doing this about 6 years now. 

I suffered from complete burnout a few years ago, and spent a few months in bed unable to do anything much. I wish I’d had Fiona Agombar’s book back then.

I’m fully on board with her recommendations for mindful gentle healing, and I hope this podcast helps you to re-energise and recover.

Nov 16, 2020

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.

A new workout regime to energise you:

I’ve been banging on about this for quite a while by now - I love Qi Gong. And the wonderful hayoufit, arronpersonaltrainer and katie_brindle managed to beat Tier 2 lockdown by a few hours and come and visit for a socially distanced Qi Gong In My Garden (cos that's the way I roll).

Why is a hybrid podcast. Because the first 15 minutes of our chat works perfectly for a podcast. And after that, you need to watch what happened here on instagram if you'd like to tap into the outside energy.

EMFs affecting our health is a really important area. We have so many powerful devices in our life now, and they can have a genuine impact on our health. Like the phone in your pocket right now!

This from the techwellness site:

DO PEOPLE REPORT PHYSICAL SYMPTOMS FROM WIFI?

Yes.  Here's just a sample:

  • Insomnia and sleep issues
  • Headaches and head pain
  • Tinnitus or ringing in the ears
  • Lethargy and extreme tiredness
  • Memory, fog, cognitive issues
  • Burning, tingling, numbness

What can we do? Ryan is a technologist with senior management experience in startup and small business within the consumer mobile technology industry. He is a PhD & postdoctoral research in laser physics and biophotonics, so he is well qualified!

This podcast is brought to you by my podcast partner for November - the “Ultimate Immunity Protection Stack” and it was put together by our friends at BiOptimizers.

Their Immunity Stack has 3 products which contain over 18 natural herbs and probiotic blends formulated to help your immune system (kind of important at the moment!). It'll fight and eliminate bad bacteria like e-coli, salmonella, gram positive and gram negative bacteria and repair compromised gut lining (also known as “Leaky Gut”)

It also includes psychobiotics which help increase serotonin and happy chemicals to naturally elevate your mood, performance and cognitive function with no side effects or depencies.

It’s a great addition to your morning routine and it tastes amazing! Just stir it into any beverage, sip and enjoy! It’s the ultimate way to boost your immunity right before the holiday season.

During the entire month of November they are having a Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale so really now is the best time to try their products or buy them as an early gift for someone you love.

Go to bioptimizers.com/zestology and use coupon code ZESTOLOGY10 to save an extra 10% on the Immunity Protection Stack.

You won’t find that deal or stack anywhere else and this special is only until November 30th.

For the fastest shipping and the best deal, go to bioptimizers.com/zestology and remember to use that code!

The average four-year-old laughs as many as three hundred times per day. The average forty-year-old, by comparison, laughs three hundred times every two and a half months. Depressing? Yes. Coincidence? Definitely not

2020 has not been funny, but humour can get you through anything.

Naomi Bagdonas is that rare thing, a highly-qualified academic and also a comic. She, along with Jennifer Aaker, has written Humour, Seriously to help all of us – however long we have been lurking at the bottom of our own humour cliff – to bring laughter and levity into every aspect of our lives.

Their research has shown that laughing, quite simply, helps us be better humans.

I loved this. I've changed quite a bit after interviewing Naomi. You will too.

Donna Lancaster is remarkably happy for someone who has to deal with a lot of people processing grief.

She is a well-known life and relationship coach who specialises in the area of grief. 

And now, with lockdown, illness, a serious pandemic and everything we've had to deal with over the past year, she's helping people build resilience in these tough times. 

She owns and runs The Bridge Retreat which is a personal development experience here in the UK. It's described as an emotional detox and a chance to rediscover your zest for life. And yes, they are now running programs online too.

Healthy relationships are so important to your energy and wellbeing. Dr. Ramani Durvasula is a licensed clinical psychologist, professor of psychology and author specialising in narcissistic personality disorder.
 
And this is a must listen!
 
She is one of the wisest people you'll ever hear talk about this issue. 

“Narcissist” has become a buzzword we often hear. But do you really know how to spot them in your life? As this article says ' If you lean in too closely, a narcissist becomes an energy vampire, making a circus of your life—the kind that causes you to perform acrobatics in order to please them.

Here's how to look out for 'the charm, the gaslighting, the seduction, the injury, and the twisted truth'.

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.

The intro to this podcast is recorded in the blue zone - that's where I am now, in the heart of longevity land. 

We then move to mastering the art of long-term thinking. We are addicted to the latest tweet and the ‘buy now’ button. How can we overcome this frenetic short-termism and extend our time horizons to tackle long-term challenges from the climate crisis to the threats of artificial intelligence?

Leading public philosopher Roman Krznaric is a brilliant Zestology guest, prepare to think, be challenged and inspired.

We are optimising sleep and circadian rhythms in today's podcast.

Greg Potter's PhD work on sleep, diet, and metabolic health has been featured all over the world, and Greg really knows his stuff. He’s big into looking at fasting, diet and using the rhythms of the day to enhance your health.

You may be surprised at the absolute best time to eat dinner, the research behind it, and how it might improve your heart rate, heart rate variability and sleep.

I've called this podcast Biohacking a Type A Personality, as I love talking to Angela, and we are both definitely... Type A personalities. Sometimes the most effective stuff for us lot is simply slowing down and doing less, but it's easier said than done. 

Angela is the Founder and CEO of My DNA Edge and we started by talking about one of the least affordable, but most enjoyable and effective hacks out there. The infrared sauna. Angela and I both love the Sunlighten Sauna, and remember if you mention Zestology to the guys at Sunlighten in the UK you’ll get 200 quid off. They’d also love to chat and they’ll explain exactly what’s going on with it all.

He had the Number 1 book in the world for 2 days, surpassing Hillary and Oprah. He's an NYT bestseller… and I love his work.

The end of Alzheimer's was groundbreaking, and Dr. Dale Bredesen has a new one out which may well change the way we think about Alzheimer's and cognitive decline forever. 

In this podcast we talk about the Apoe4 gene quite a bit. This is the gene that makes you more disposed to Alzheimers and I've got one variant of that gene, as do about a quarter of the population.

  • Fasting: 14 to 16 hours? What's good?  Do you allow coffee in that time?
  • Saturated fats, and my unhealthy breakfast.
  • Good fats and histamine intolerance.
  • Omega 3s.
  • What supplements?
  • Resveratrol. Is it really that good?
  • Heart Rate Variability
  • Oxygen saturation
  • And the wonders of chia seed pudding

Finally, we talk about a fascinating study.... it shows that where you live is a key determinant of whether you’ll reach age 100. A recent study indicates that neighborhood walkability, socioeconomic status, and a high percentage of working age population positively correspond with longevity.

CEO Mark Scott ate like a dog for one month. The results will surprise you!

He runs a healthy dog food company, and wanted to see what would happen when he ate human processed food for one month, then test to see what happened when he switched back to a healthy diet (that he feeds his dogs at Bella And Duke).

His company is wildly successful and this is a fun experiment, although I would not be able to eat rubbish for a month for any experiment!

Fresh from his hit appearance on Joe Rogan Experience, James Nestor joins me to talk breathing. Investigative writer James Nestor has written a scientific adventure into the lost art and science of breathing

90 per cent of us – very likely you, me and almost everyone you know – are breathing incorrectly - whoah - and this failure is either potentially causing or aggravating a laundry list of chronic illnesses.

So we’ll look into that, and then some things that help;

  • We should shut our mouth when breathing and why mouth-breathing is terrible
  • We should exhale for longer
  • We should avoid overly soft food (going against the diet advice of eating what our great grandmothers ate!)
  • We should all engage in nose singing!
  • We should do a spot of Mouth taping!
  • And even, how to stop going to the loo in the middle of the night.

Most supplements contain only 1 or 2 forms of magnesium... when in reality there are at least 7 that your body needs and benefits from. 

That’s why I’m so excited to tell you about a new magnesium product I’ve been taking now called, Magnesium Breakthrough. It’s the ULTIMATE magnesium supplement, easily the best I’ve ever seen or experienced... with all 7 forms of this mineral.

Magnesium Breakthrough has been selling faster than the company who makes it, BiOptimizers, has been able to keep up with. It’s already sold out a few times and due to supply shortages with everything going on in the world, it could very well be sold out again shortly.

Sarah Knight writes sweary self-help books. The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving A F*ck and & 4 more. Her latest is F*ck No! 

You might have heard her on Zestology podcast before. She's awesome. 

She gives so little of a... well you get the idea... that she upped sticks and went to live in paradise with a dodgy internet connection. I've tracked her down for this interview, but she got cut off before I could ask her favourite book at the end of the interview. Ah well, I've asked her that before, if you want to listen to episodes 48, 92, and 119.

I've been learning Qi Gong for a couple of months now with the excellent Arron Collins-Thomas. I love it, and I can't quite explain why it makes me feel so good. 

Arron has been a leading personal trainer and lifestyle coach for the last 14 years. Arron works for the Soho House group as a specialist personal trainer, working with clients from film stars to CEOs. He also runs his own chain of gyms.

Arron has an impressive knowledge of Chinese Medicine and Eastern wellness practices, gained over many years of study and training – namely with the lauded Long White Cloud Qigong centre. He began incorporating qigong into his programmes after seeing the enormous level of improvement it added.
