It turns out of all the things you can do to protect yourself from illness, one of them is have smaller puddings. This is a small disaster as I do like a pudding, as you’ll hear, but Dr. Matt Cook goes over some of the research about blood sugar levels and immunity that could mean smaller desserts for me in future.

Also on this podcast we talk

  • antibody testing,
  • sorting out the gut,
  • and whether a miracle supplement that is supposed to heal the junctions in your gut is worth it.

First a disclaimer… please don’t start any new regime without consulting your medical practitioner. If you think you are suffering from coronavirus you must get the appropriate medical advice, as Dr Cook advocates a number of times in this podcast.

Dr. Matt Cook runs a functional medicine clinic called BioReset Medical, and is one of the world’s top experts in the area of natural health and immunity.

How much exercise are you getting during lockdown. If you're spending a lot of time sitting down, you need an anatomy geek as we seek to hack our posture, aches and pains and bodies during lockdown.

Celest is a self-confessed anatomy geek. She's a trained physio, and one of the world's most successful yoga teachers (though she'd be far too modest to ever describe herself as that.)

She's been on Zestology 5 times now - you'll enjoy listening.

In this podcast we talk health, festivals, exercise, motivation, connecting, plant medicine, and more. 

Keith Norris is a world authority on healthy living. 

He is also the founder of Paleo f(x)™ -the world’s premier holistic wellness event, covering health, nutrition, fitness, sustainability, self-development, spirituality, relationships, entrepreneurship, & everything in between.

This podcast was supposed to come out two months ago, and I was supposed to be in Austin for the conference in April. Then coronavirus struck. Like everything else, they were forced to cancel, but they have rescheduled for July.

So we recorded it blissfully unaware of the approaching pandemic, and it's brilliant that they are still going ahead, currently at least. It's basically like a festival and lots of fun, so I'd encourage you to go. 

Check out my two websites, http://tonywrighton.com/ and https://histamineintolerance.net/

THIS EPISODE IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY: P3-OM, the amazing probiotic that you can try for free. As you know, everyone is facing challenges with the recent virus pandemic. From stress, financials, sickness and quarantines, there’s not a lot of people who haven’t been touched by it.

Julia Samuel is the psychotherapist you wish you had on call. A great description of today's guest, who's written a book that is extraordinarily well timed given everything we are going through.

This Too Shall Pass is a book of stories on how we can adapt and thrive during our most difficult times. Like, right now. 
 
Julia Samuel, MBE, is a leading British psychotherapist. During the last thirty years, she has worked first for the NHS and then in private practice, and specialises in the area of grief and loss.

This podcast is brought to you by P3-OM, the amazing probiotic that you can try for free. As you know, everyone is facing challenges with the recent virus pandemic. From stress, financials, sickness and quarantines, there’s not a lot of people who haven’t been touched by it.

One of the highest risk factors is a weakened immune system and a lot of what affects that weakened system is determined by your gut health.

So that's why I asked my friends at BiOptimizers to help people during these hard times... They are giving away a free bottle of their patented probiotic P3-OM until the end of this month. 

As you know, I’m a fan of P3-OM and I’ve talked about it multiple times on this show. There’s a good reason for that. It’s because P3-OM helps eliminate bad bacteria and pathogens and rapidly boosts your gut health—and therefore also boosts immunity...

In these tough times, we are getting to spend a lot of time at home with just our family and our thoughts for company. So today;

Improve  your Sleep, Attention, Nutrition, and Stress Response for a Better Brain. 

Dr. Hill is a world neurofeedback expert and a great resource for topics like biohacking, healthy brain aging, addiction, nutrition, nootropics, ADHD, autism, mindfulness, meditation, etc.  He's been a guest on several popular podcasts such as the Dr. Drew Podcast, Ben Greenfield, Joe Rogan and Bulletproof Radio. 

He’s famous for his Neurofeedback labs and we get to that, but I started by asking him about the cheaper ways, the instant actionable ways we can improve our brain plasticity and performance.

THIS EPISODE IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY: BiOptimizers, a company that have made it their mission to heal our guts. I’m getting in some industry-leading supplements at the moment. Yes, just call me the gut-health guinea pig, trying their stuff out and making my digestion like new. Want to join me?

For more info on them and a cheesy picture of me, head to http://www.bioptimizers.com/zestology, and use the code ZESTOLOGY10 for 10% off. (If you are in the UK, this page will work for you - discount code still works there.)

Happy gut = happy life, so let’s BiOptimize.

Apr 20, 2020

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.

Dr. Steve is one of my best friends and a regular guest. He's in the unique position of being a medical doctor for 30 years, and more recently a specialist on high performance, mental game and dealing with stress. So extremely relevant at this particular time.

In this podcast we talk concentrating on our mission in tough times, dealing with fear and anxiety (and why they're not the same), switching off and loads more. Enjoy.

Apr 8, 2020

As you know, I've been considering setting up a free Book Club. And here it is.

Books feature a lot on the podcast so maybe it is a good idea at this time. We are all desperately in need of switching off the news (if just for 20 minutes) and escaping.  So in this podcast I launch our first book. The idea is we all read it together, and then... uh, well I'm kind of making it up as I go along, as you'll hear in the podcast.

Apr 6, 2020

On today's podcast, find out what's in my freezer, and other more important lockdown issues.

Yes, we are talking... drumroll, lockdown tactics, how to deal with coronavirus from a physical, mental and emotional perspective.

So how are you getting on with all this?  I do hope you are keeping safe and well. On the subject of keeping well, Beth O’Hara is a Functional Naturopath and Functional Genetic Analyst and specialises in working with clients with Histamine Intolerance and Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (and you probably know about my interest in histamine issues). She has a Doctorate in Naturopathy specialising in Functional Naturopathic Approaches and is the perfect person to talk to in these strange times.

We talk in general terms about immunity, breathing techniques, supplements and tips, and also a bit more in depth about allergies, histamine intolerance and mast cell activation syndrome too.

On this coronavirus focused podcast we look at anything and everything we can do to improve our health and immune system. Including;

  • Functional medicine treatments, and commonly available supplements that science may show helps.
  • Pharmaceutical approaches that doctors and governments may pursue

First a disclaimer at the start… please don’t start any new regime without consulting your medical practitioner. If you think you are suffering from coronavirus you must get the appropriate medical advice, as Dr Cook advocates a number of times in this podcast.

Dr. Matt Cook runs a functional medicine clinic called BioReset Medical, and is one of the world’s top experts in the area of natural health and immunity. I first found out about him from Ben Greenfield and Dave Asprey. He has spent the past several weeks distilling the latest coronavirus research, talking with experts around the world and integrating his vast clinical experience to provide up to date information to the public and medical practitioners.  As you’ll hear, he’s reading every available study every day, and he’s changing his approach based on the science daily too.

To reiterate, if you get ill, he is absolutely not saying take matters into your own hands. You must get proper medical treatment, but he does say there are things you can do to boost your immunity.

Please stay safe and healthy.

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to escalate, Dr. Jeff Rediger is the person to talk to. I felt considerably better after talking to him for 40 minutes, and I hope you feel better after listening too.

Jeffrey Rediger, M.D., is medical director for the McLean SouthEast Adult Psychiatric Programs and an instructor in psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. He publishes in the fields of medicine, psychiatry and spirituality. His work has been featured on the Oprah and Dr. Oz shows, among others.

The uncertainty, the anxiety and the health implications of coronavirus are weighing heavily on our minds as the disruption continues to impact on all areas of our lives.

Breathwork expert Richard Blake and I just recorded this, and look at the worrying aspects of this virus, and how we can best deal with the anxiety around coronavirus and look after ourselves at this strange and uncertain time.

This podcast is all about energy, so how do we protect our energy fields at this time? Loaded with some practical suggestions you can do today, especially if you are stuck at home.

Mar 9, 2020

I start today's podcast with my thoughts on coronavirus. It's an unusually sober start to proceedings as I know many of you are anxious about what is occurring across the world. 

Whilst I certainly wouldn't offer any health advice on coronavirus, I've talked in the podcast where I've been going for information and what's been on my mind.

Then we turn our attention to immunity - something we are all keen to boost at the moment.

Let's be honest, sorting out the gut is the key. It's THE thing, but it’s really hard to know where to start. It's very hard to get the right advice.

Today's guest can help. Wade Lightheart.

Wade is a 3-time former Canadian All-Natural Bodybuilding champion, and then he went on to found a company called BiOptimizers that specialises in digestive health. Oh he's also an advisor to the American Anti-Cancer Institute. The company's called BiOptimzers and so let's do some bioptimzing.

He’s been in the health industry for over 25 years, coached thousands of clients, and is sought out by athletes and high-performance oriented individuals worldwide for his advice on how to optimize their health.

Well here it is, let's get cracking with a spot of anti-ageing, super-relaxing, detoxifying, sleep-helping, pain-relieving sauna action. Today's podcast is an experiment. Can I make any sense at all after sitting in a Sunlighten Infrared Sauna for 40 minutes? And can my guest Joie Risk? We'll find out.

You've heard me talk about my partners Sunlighten for a while now, and I've been threatening to record a podcast in the sauna haven't I. It's finally time. Do the microphones melt? Do we? Listen on...

For more check www.sunlightensaunas.co.uk

His book, "Become a SuperLearner", is a bestseller in print, digital, and audiobooks.

So how do we remember names? 

Feb 18, 2020

A short, sweet podcast on The Joy of Missing Out. It’s so important. Doing less, saying no, disconnecting and watching Dancing On Ice on the telly. Or whatever it might be. 

Fear of missing out, or FOMO is wrecking our lives. So this podcast is a compilation of some of my favourite podcast guests, past and future who live a JOMO life…  And my thoughts on JOMO too.

You'll hear

  • Sarah Knight 
  • Katie Brindle
  • Chris Ryan
  • Brett Moran

Between them they live on four continents, and very much walk-the-walk when it comes to doing less and enjoying life, in their own different ways. 

Feb 10, 2020

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...

Feb 3, 2020

Recently I started a new diet, and it completely changed my life. Easily the biggest health and wellness change of the last 12 months.

Absolute game changer, i have more energy, more in shape, less bloating, and so on. This has been the best change on a Zestology theme for a long time. So in this podcast, we look into a real passion of mine, something that Cpmplex issues - MCAS and Histamine Intolerance.

Between 9 and 15% of the population have it, that might be you, and you don't even know it.

We start with Beth's story, then get on to talking more generally about allergies and how they can be a killer in terms of performance, and a little about my experience of Histamine Intolerance too. 

Jan 27, 2020

My favourite recent hacks to help your energy and vitality levels.

Recorded on the beach - very lucky to get a dose of winter Vitamin D.

More info on brain hacks:

  1. I first used this brain sensing headband about 5 years ago. Click here if you’d like to see my good friend Dr. Stephen Simpson modelling it in an earlier podcast. It is described as a personal meditation assistant that will gently guide you to a calm mind. Put on the Muse headband, earbuds, start the app, and close your eyes. You will hear changing sounds of weather based on the real-time state of your brain which allows you to obtain a deeper sense of focus and motivates you to build a highly rewarding practice.
  2. Brain hack 2 to energise you: Meditation app. You might remember I mentioned Sam Harris’ Waking Up meditation app about a year ago. And I’m still using it. It makes a big difference to my day and has got me thinking about all sorts of trippy consciousness concepts. It’s very simple, and introduces the listener to lots of different types of meditation. Each day is about 10 minutes so manageable. They’ve recently introduced a 20-minute option too.
  3. Brain hack 3 to energise you? A U.S. brain research company called Emotiv has developed a brain-scanning device with two electrodes, one for each ear (thanks to Zestology listener Sonia for flagging it up). It looks like standard ear pods, and functions like them too. I’m not keen, in fact I wouldn’t even want to wear standard earpods all day connected to either bluetooth or wifi. But that aside, technology moving into user-friendly brain-scanning raises all sorts of ethical considerations, and whilst I quite like the Muse headband, I draw the line at this! What about you? Let me know.
