A telomere is nucleotide sequences found at the end of chromosomes, which protects the genetic information within our DNA. What we've learned so far is that these telomeres can change in length depending on our exposures and lifestyles, which impacts overall health.
In this episode, Dr. Darrell Misak and I will be diving deeper into telomeres and how they can give us information on the aging process of our bodies.

Transcript For Episode (Transcripts aren't even close to 100% Accurate)
Bryan Carroll: [00:00:15] It's been a little while, since our last podcast episode, the last episode was with Melissa K. Norris, and we talked about different ways. To preserve the food that you grow in your garden.
So if you have not listened to that and you have a garden, definitely go back and listen to that episode. But we haven't been just sitting around doing nothing. If you've been watching our YouTube channel, we've been posting a lot more videos this year. That was one of our goals. This year was to get a lot more videos on YouTube.
So head on over to summit for wellness.com/youtube, and you can see some of the stuff we've been doing over there. But now we're back in the swing of things with the podcast. We have a lot of great episodes lined up for you. And today we will be talking about telomeres and anti-aging with doc Misak. If you don't know who I am, I'm Bryan Carroll and I help people move more, eat well and be adventurous.
And doc Muzak is on the show today to help us. To age gracefully. So we'll be talking about different ways to improve our telomeres, how to really focus on a proper nutrition and reducing exposures to different toxins and whatnot in the environment. So that as we age, we have less load on our systems. So let's jump into my conversation with doc Misak.
Thanks doc. MAYSAC for coming onto the show,
Dr. Darrell Misak: [00:01:32] I'm looking forward to it.
Bryan Carroll: [00:01:35] Yeah, me too. And we're definitely going to be talking about anti-aging and telomeres, which is definitely a very hot topic right now. But before we get into that, let's learn a little bit more about who you are and what your background is.
Dr. Darrell Misak: [00:01:48] I am pharmacists initially graduating West Virginia university realized that medicine is all about disease management. I'm always interested. My, my thing is how to think. I loved anatomy, physiology, biochemistry. Next thing you know, I discovered naturopathic medicine. I'm out in the Oregon doing getting my naturopathic doctorate degree back in the year 2000.
I did compounding pharmacy while I was there. And and then I moved back to Pittsburgh where I You know, I, I view podcast shows I teach and, and just keep diving down that rabbit hole of how the things work. I discovered and basically a quantum bioelectric concept of the human body and teach people that anybody can be healthy if you learn how to understand some basic chemistry principles of what we are made of.
It's kind of cool. Yeah.
Bryan Carroll: [00:02:41] And having the pharmacy background and the naturopathic background, that must be really interesting for you because you're looking at you know, conventional approaches to medication. And then you're also getting that experience with more of natural substances as well. So having access to both of those realms, what has that done for your own practice and the way that you see people and how to help?
Dr. Darrell Misak: [00:03:05] Well, you know, I'm in a non-licensed naturopath. State. So I can't turn around and say, stop that medication, but I can say, Hey, if I were to work on stopping any medications, this is the order that I would stop them. These are the ones that you can just quit. These are the ones that you have to slowly wean off of.
This is how we would monitor to know when you're ready to come off of. And things like that I've really become a purist and teaching people. How food is your primary source of of, of medicine by helping people to understand the realize which foods are good or bad form by some simple testing at home.
But also when you're looking at supplements, we look at the the aspect of support. What does the body actually need? And mostly it's minerals and basic vitamins. It's not all the fish oils, Coke, U 10 turmeric frankincense, you know, all the anti-inflammatories and, you know, let me, let's not fix a system.
Let's look at the whole body, but enhance its ability is what I, the concepts of what I brought into the picture for me.
Bryan Carroll: [00:04:09] Right. Yeah, exactly. It seems like a lot of the like you said, the anti-inflammatories is trying to chase the symptoms instead of trying to build up strong foundations. So there is that component where you do need to reduce inflammation, but you also need to work on the foundation of the person
Dr. Darrell Misak: [00:04:25] as well.
Yeah. I mean, most, most of the time you will see the basic concepts. Disease is an inflammation based process. And so they say inflammation is the cause of all disease. Well, I could, I could, I could explain that to you on a quantum level what's electromagnetically happening. Yes. That that's the case, but the goal is, you know, there's these principles of natural medicine at first, you know, like, you know, the, the healing power of nature, the first do no harm.
The, you know, the doctor as a teacher you know, the treat the whole person there's this, these there's these concepts of natural medicine that separates it from traditional. It's like, let's, let's have a philosophy of how the body truly restores itself versus I've got a disease. I got to take care of that disease.
Cause you know, so let's look at the whole body. And for me, you know, I, I came up with a few ways of explaining it one. I came up with a one, what I call a five phase approach, you know, phase one, environmental protection, pure air, pure food, pure water, EMF protection, you know, looking at the factors of how you're interacting with the world around you.
To affect your body's ability to homeostatically react, respond to its environment, phase two, identify your causes, test. What are you reacting to? What are your food allergies? What are you are, you know, are you reacting to environmental toxicities and, you know, identify your problems. Phase three. So, you know, what does your body actually need?
Not, Hey, I've got an adrenal thyroid liver issue taking support for those particular Oregon systems, but biochemically, what does the body need to functionally improve its efficiency? And I do it through a simple home urine and saliva test baseboard detox. You know, if you totally lower, the Bo the body can only handle so much stress.
You exceed that stress. A body says, I can't do this. I can only do this. And so something's got to give. And so based upon your genetic predispositions, your environmental exposures, what your body can not process something breaks down. So we see symptoms. So the idea is if you lower the total load by cleaning up your air, pure food, water EMF, if you identify what your stressors are and stop eating those foods, and then you give the body what it needs.
You enhance, raise your threshold. Hey, I can tolerate more because I'm actually getting what I need. Well, now this body's got this aspect of like, Hey, I'm generating more energy than I'm consuming. So let's start cleaning up shop here. And detox is a natural process. It's part of the restoration, but it's not just go detox and you'll get better.
People do detox and feel better, but if they don't clean up the. Reduce what the stressors are, what their causes of illness give the body, what it needs. You're just going to go right back into the same patterns. And so base five is a, self-awareness huge, you know, you could turn around and, and, and you know, they're not based 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, any origin, because you could turn around and say, many people just need to learn self-awareness and be like, you know what?
I'm, I'm eating crap. Why don't I stop? I might feel better. Yeah. And just make that association, Hey, when I go out for beer, pizza and tacos, and I feel like crap the next day, maybe I shouldn't do the beer pizza and tacos, and I should think of a different approach to how I'm going about that. And if I'm actually looking for health, being a maintenance of what I'm truly looking for.
So, you know, that's a simplified way of looking at it, but that five phase approach gives people a way of interacting, acting with the world around them. You know, the bio electric chemistry that I do. That's a whole other aspects of understanding that, you know, there's chemistry aspects that we can measure at home that give you an idea of whether I'm eating the right foods and whether I'm generating more energy than I'm consuming.
And I just opened up a big door for you to say, where do we want to go with this conversation?
Bryan Carroll: [00:08:18] Yup. And I want to go back to the environmental protection because I've been thinking about this a lot lately, and I don't really know how to formulate this question, but I think you'll have a good response to whatever I come up with.
When it comes to the, our environment and the low level of different toxic chemicals or whatever it is that we get exposed to. And now with the increase in wildfires. So being outside where you would think you would get like the best cleanest air. Getting a little you know, just full of stuff.
That's really not that good for you. If we're looking into the future and trying to protect ourselves from the environment is our future of a healthy environment. Going to be more of an indoor type of environment with a lot of sanitary type practices that could then also put us at more risk. If we exit those sanitary environments to get sick in other ways, or is there a future of a healthy environment still going to be outside?
Dr. Darrell Misak: [00:09:18] Well, it's both. I mean, where do you spend most of your time? You know, indoor air quality sucks. You know, what's off gassing from your carpet. What's off gassing from your, the sealants what's off gassing from whatever. Yeah. Volatile, organic compounds things like that. You got to look at bacteria mold, mycotoxins, you know, indoor air quality, just, you know, if people close up their houses and we're getting more tightly sealed houses and things are just research.
Cause you don't, you know, we don't have great filtration systems on our indoor air. We just recycle the area now. And. And most of what you're breathing is skin cells and, and dust mites and all types of fun things. When you look at that cloud coming through the sunlight, when you, when you open your curtains in the morning.
So I do encourage people to have Air purifiers that do radio catalytic ionization, and germicidal ultraviolet. And I, you know, the ions caused the particulates to grab and then gravity to take them out sometimes even low dose ozone, you know you know, high dose ozone. Yeah. You can hear Tate airways and you can get too much, but as a, as a natural way to cleanse and detoxify and, and sterilize, you know, your, your countertops.
You know, radio, catalytic, ionization, and ozone can do wonders for people who are living in bad environments. As far as outside is concerned you know what, what's in our skies, what's coming from jets. What's coming from, you know, who knows what you know is in our air. You can look at air quality.
Living in cities is actually obviously worse than living out the away from things. And it's definitely a concern look at what's in our waterways. You know, if you believe that tap water is just as safe to drink as, as a distilled water, I think you're crazy. You know, you know, there's anything that your body is exposed to, whether you're breathing it drinking and absorbing it through your skin when it gets into your body.
Your, your system says electromagnetically, can I use this or is it a burden? You know, and we just have exceeded our burdens. Our thresholds are exceeded. So just cleaning up your environment with the quality of air, quality of water, what you're bathing in, what type of products you're putting on your body?
What kind of foods are you eating? Genetically modified foods. Are you, are you eating pesticide Laden foods? Are you washing those pesticides off? Electromagnetic fields. Just look at the research on 5g. It's scary stuff, you know, and, you know, go to your phone right now and look up wifi signals. How many, how many pop up, you know, you're bombarded with electromagnetic field.
You know, what are you doing about that? You know, so there are ways to neutralize those fields, Shanghai sites various types of crystals have been used to neutralize those type of electrical fields. There are some devices that work and some that claim that they work, you know? So I look for ones that have shown to have some type of EMF protection.
You can't get away from it, but you can neutralize its effect on you. You know, so is cleaning up your environment really can have a positive impact overall on your wellbeing. Cause your body adapt to the environment that you're in.
Bryan Carroll: [00:12:25] Right. Well, let's start diving into telomeres a little bit. I don't know a whole lot about telomeres, so I'm really excited to learn from you about what telomeres are.
So can you tell us what are telomeres, just like a quick and dirty example,
Dr. Darrell Misak: [00:12:40] telomeres are on the end of your DNA, you know, within your chromosome. They're, they're the part of the DNA that re in regards to replication, you know, and so, and it says, Hey, we're going to keep making this because this is healthy.
You know, it's going to make the best possible DNA that it can, but as telomeres shorten our DNA ability to replicate diminishes and dies off you. But then what they found is that telomere shortening is directly associated with it. Period as telomeres shorten you age period. And in 2009, the Nobel prize in medicine was won by three physiologists.
Look it up two belts, 2009 Nobel prize. And these three physiologists discovered an enzyme called telomerase, telomere eights ASC. If you ever look at enzymes in your digestive enzymes or systemic enzymes, all of them and an ASE, it's an enzyme, right? So telomerase is an enzyme that is. Hi in a mouth. It prevents telomeres from shortening and as they shortened we age.
And so these, these physiologists show that, Hey, if we stimulate this enzyme, we have prematurely aged mice, white hair, arthritic cataracts, kidney failure, senile couldn't get the amazes, which the enzyme and not just the telomeres, not shorten, but they anti-age the mice, their hair got. Their joint pain went away.
Their kidney failure went away. Their their brains actually on autopsy grew by 25%, you know? So, you know, so they literally reverse age these mice, so, oh my God. So I'm, I'm in I had to things work greatest anti-aging discovery ever. Okay. Pharmacy background compounding pharmacy background.
I did tell him your research and found like, wow there are natural products that stimulate telomerase activity. I looked okay. Are there any products on the market that do this? And there was one it's expensive as crap that had a cyclo straggling all on a straggle side. I strive us all straggle side for two.
I'm a straggler sex drags in it. And if you were taking the doses that they were claiming that shortened, that prevented telomere from shortening, it could cost you like $2,000. So rich and famous, they short stay, stay anti-aging right. So I turned around and from a naturopathic standpoint and from a pharmacy standpoint I formulated a product called bite allometry.
And so what I did is I looked at all these could be different types of products, mostly herbs that were showing Tullamore resect . And I said, okay, if these herbs all have telomerase activity, why hasn't anybody, they taking herbs that all have telomerase activity and use them in a S in a way that just supports the body.
And that's what made sense to me from a naturopathic doctor pharmacist standpoint. So a straggler, those extracts, the cyclist straggling all straggle side four. I put them in there, but not in those high man. But then I use the stragglers cause it has been shown that, but what's the stragglers do adrenal support, immune support supports the liver, adrenal glands, those type of things that Memphis all heard about that who hasn't liver support.
Right. Still, also has telomerase activity. Ginko. Okay. Wait a minute. These brains grew by 25%. Well, what if I enhance circulation to the brain? With Gingko, keep the blood thin, a little bit of a Mo small amount of blood thinning ability. So the blood flow goes improves well but get blood flow, but it also had telomerase activity purslane weeding your garden.
Most people pull it and throw it away, but it's the richest source of omega-3 fatty acids. And what a mega three fats do. Every cell membrane has healthy fats, your brain, mostly healthy. Let's improve the ability and translocation of minerals and nutrients across the cell membranes by giving healthy fats, but also personally telomerase activity.
There's a herb called Sino. Moriam, it's a, it's a Chinese yang tonic. And it so it's, it's known for sexual vitality. And strong now again, telomerase activity, but it gives you that energy without having that, that winery kind of caffeine effect and then a lot, you also, if you go and get the book on telomeres, it's called the telomere effect by one of my Elizabeth Blackburn.
She was one of the three physiologists. Then she wrote a book. As she talks about antioxidants having poor lifestyle. We can talk about that too, but antioxidants. And so green tea, most powerful. One of the illogic acids, one of the most powerful antioxidants out there showed, have anti-cancer effect shown to help metabolism and digestion aspect, cardiovascular health, again, telomerase activity, resveratrol, and elderly.
Again, well, let's support our immune system also telomerase activity, right? And then that bio electric chemistry stuff that I teach you have to have, if you look at electric aspect of what we are, potassium, starting electric potentials going mostly through calcium channels and calcium regulates the movement of all minerals in and out of the cells.
So I put some calcium phosphate in there called call and I put a little bit of less. Because lemon is completely an ionic in nature. Everything in nature has positive and negative charges, cat ions in an ions and an eye to disperse. Right? So, and so lemons fully antibiotic. When you teach bio electric chemistry, you have to be drinking lemon as part of your regimen.
But it also, what about lemons and vitamin C and antioxidant activity and stuff like that? So I've put this stuff together. I started mixing these powders from a pharmacy, compounding pharmacy, making these capsules, taking them. I'm like, oh my God, do I really feel this good? So I asked my clients would you like to try something?
And they're like, are you asking me to be a experiment? Dr. Meesa and I'm like that's up to you. I'll give you some capsules. Every one of them, can I get more of these? All of them asked me, you know, and any negative that no, I feel great. Can I, will you sell me some of these? Like, no, but within a year and a half, you know, I turned around and came up with a bite allometry, put it on the market.
And it took off from there. My favorite story for vital allometry is my dog. Clara, you know, I had a 13 year old lab and she was losing bladder control. She was pinging around the house. She was walking. She, she never went out of the yard. She knew the boundaries. You could just let her out, she'd go out and she'd come back in.
Next thing you know, I had people like, did you know your dogs in the middle of the road? No, you know your dogs across the street? No, she was losing, becoming senile. She couldn't make it up the stairs. My wife was like, we need to put her down. I'm like, you know what, let me try one thing first. So I took the ingredients from from vital allometry and I mixed them with a hydrolyzed collagen because, you know, joint issues and nail and skin health.
And she was having that. And next thing you know, my dog's playing like a. And not only that she lived to be 15 years old, still able to walk up the stairs, still able to make it to the door and say, I got her to the bathroom. You know, she was still slow. I mean, 15 year old purebred lab, but still. You know, she was a happy dog.
Right. And Emily ran, I ran out of making her product and and, and I didn't bring it home within like a week. And she just started going downhill. So fast ping couldn't make up, fell down the stairs. My wife's like, I'm not going through this again. And I'm like, I agree. And then we, at that point, we chose to have her put down, you know, but over 15 years on a pier bed, Just as a testimony for, you know, what we have seen yet alone.
I tell people you know, if you really, we, we don't make claims cause we can't, you know, but if people go to Amazon and find vital allometry, you know, it's V I T E L O M E T R Y vital allometry. You can go to vital allometry.com or you can go to doc maysac.com and there's links to it there with all my shows and history.
And but if you go to Amazon, you can read reviews because people do reviews on the product. And I tell people, you know, I'm not going to make clients just read what other people have said about taking the price. And just great stories. Most people increased energy mental focus we've had people have their sex life return in their seventies.
We've had just beautiful stories, you know, chronic fatigue, all types of things in brewing. But I'm not gonna sit here and say that it does anything. You know, because we just call it anti-aging science, you know because we want to stay on the air and be able to tell you about it. And in today's day of of scrutiny what can be said or not said, so I listened to testimonies and learn more.
And, and again, if people go to vital allometry.com or go to doc MiniSeq and find the product through the vital allometry.com website because of us doing these shows, if they use. 10 S U M M I T. Number 10, if they use summit 10, we'll give a 10% discount. We know they listened to the show and they tried to brought a
Bryan Carroll: [00:22:07] perfect, I know a lot of people will definitely enjoy getting that 10% off discount when it comes to.
Telomeres and telomerase, is there any way to actually test, to see, you know, the length of your telomeres and be able to, you know, see on paper, how things are changing?
Dr. Darrell Misak: [00:22:27] Definitely. I used to try to incorporate and, and then encourage people to do it to a test. And then retest six months later, six to nine months later.
But it's expensive. It's probably about 160 bucks or so, but again, Elizabeth Blackburn, the a has a product, has a company called tele, you know, years, you know, and I think it's hello years, T E L O Y E R S or something like that. And basically you can order a test and it, it, what they do is she gives you an idea of your telomere length and, and appropriates it based upon your age to say, Hey, your.
40, but you have telomeres the length of a 60 year old because you have a lot of stress on them. And, and bottom line, we were talking about, Hey, inflammation causing disease, you know, and what, what shortens your telomeres is stress, you know, childhood trauma and people who carry trauma and mental stress.
Then it's been shown that people who meditate their telomeres. You know poor diet and lifestyle, saturated fats and things like that shortens your telomeres, whereas healthy foods and basic vitamins and antioxidants can actually lengthen your telomeres. Your body needs good nutrition, you know? And so her book really outlined some of that.
I love the aspects of how mental awareness and dealing with your childhood traumas and those things can really, you know, you, you just carry them. Cycle through your head of crap. And it actually that stress that we create in our own minds makes you age quicker, you know, that's that's you know, gives you reason to work on your mental thought processes.
Right. You know? And so there's a lot of things out there. And I just came about it from a different angle. I, I looked at it from an eclectic standpoint, from a naturopathic, something that supports all these body systems to work better with the telomere activity. And it just took into something that turned into something beautiful for people that have tried it.
Bryan Carroll: [00:24:35] Now going back to the environment. If you were in an environment like a hyperbaric chamber where you're getting increased loads of oxygen, would that also help your telomeres?
Dr. Darrell Misak: [00:24:46] I have a hyperbaric chamber in the room. You know, what you're doing is you, you got to, you're going back and asking basic mechanisms of cellular health, you know oxygen's needed, but you got to ask the question, why is there lack of oxygen?
It's typically poor sugar regulation. It's people who are eating bad foods or people who are sugar crashing. Cause they're either drinking too much water or eating the wrong sugars or over secreting insulin. They're bottoming out their sugars with with sugar regulation. We see oxygen available. In the body.
And that's part of the chemistry concept that I teach. I can teach you how to get a refractometer test your urine when you're, whenever you go to the bathroom, watch your patterns, and you'll learn whether you're eating the wrong foods or drinking enough water. If you monitor your pH, particularly your urine pH.
You'll see which foods, you know, cause an acid effect while your sugars go up to food allergy. And I'm what, and then I teach, Hey, based upon where your pH is, you need to eat these foods because they have the minerals that move your chemistry back towards an idea. You know, and and there's more to the chemistry.
It's YouTube doc, MAYSAC on YouTube, it's all on there. I've got basic videos that kind of show a whiteboard ad that explains the basics of it. I have multiple shows. I think everybody should understand that you can be held. You know, but the thing is, is when you start testing your chemistry, then you got to realize, oh my God, am I making the right choices?
Because when you watch the chemistry, they're like, oh, I can't get that down because I keep eating crappy foods because I enjoy eating them, you know? So it means making choices by analytically, measuring and seeing, Hey, I eat that. It's crappy for me. Yeah. And so that's a whole other show based upon, you know, talking about telomeres and anti-aging, you know, anti-aging people, you know, bind who you are if deal with your stress and your mental self-awareness.
And I think the best person out there is the holistic psychologist, Nicola para her book, you know, and how to do the work and taking those steps to recognize the moment of where are we. And and, and, and not internalizing and running the crap scenarios through our head that really never happened.
And really, you know, becoming the person that you want to believe and setting up healthy boundaries and, and realizing that that internal stress is huge component component of everything. She's just beautiful and how she teaches it. But the aspects of you know, dealing with that aspect of life and then understanding the chemistry of life where.
I, I watch miracles happen, you know, it's that simple, you know, I, I see people who think that they're going to deal with chronic debilitating issues for the rest of their life. And they realize that, wait a minute, I can actually build my body to restore and recognizing what's throwing it out, not just by taking fish oils, Coke, you 10, a good multi, you know, the basics, but specifically identifying what you need.
So it's, it's, it's a, it's such a rewarding aspect. I love what I do.
Bryan Carroll: [00:27:49] Can you lengthen telomeres too much and have it cause problems on the other end
Dr. Darrell Misak: [00:27:54] ever heard of that, there is concerns out there and the telomere aspect of saying, Hey, if we lengthened the telomeres of cancerous cells, we're lengthening the age of cancer cells.
And so Elizabeth Blackburn does put that out there, like, Hey, you know, you can, we actually sustain the life of a bad cell, you know, and have it replicating bad cells consistent. So, what I teach from a chemistry standpoint is your body is not in to repairing cells, it's into replacing and getting rid of the old and making sure that your body is in the process of giving what it needs to build healthy cells while able to eliminate because everything's electromagnetic and cells that are abberant are separated electromagnetically.
And when you bring your frequency in your. PH is really into where they're supposed to be. Those cells that aren't in resonance with you get separated and eliminated because they are not attracted to be part of you. It's kind of a chemistry way of looking at it, but that's what we're doing is we're enabling the body to you know, extinguishing, get rid of what, you know, the guy who taught at Kerry rims to get rid of carcinoid set.
Because they they're, they're not electromagnetically part of connected on your frequency and your body's controlled by the, by the nervous system. So it's
Bryan Carroll: [00:29:20] now going back to your five phase approach to health. Do you work on the telomeres right away? Or do you wait until people get to a certain phase before you start to implement more of the like your product and other ways to increase length of telomeres so that it's more
Dr. Darrell Misak: [00:29:37] effective.
If you tell someone to take some time to meditate, pray, find some quiet time. Plan out their day, reduce their stress load. Then basically you are, and you tell people, you know, to get away from unhealthy diet and towards a diet that's actually supportive of health. Are you working with telomeres according to those physiologists and the research out there?
Yeah, you will. I ethically I do not teach people about my product. I think it's wrong for someone to come into my office and I sit here and say, this is what's going on with you, but you have to take part. You have to take my product in order to deal with it. I'm looking at chemistry. Let me improve your overall health.
And yes, my product. If you're interested in it, let me tell you about it overall. Yes, it will make you feel. But it's not something that I quote say that you need in order for your chemistry to become more effective. So telomere health, if you're working on the aspects of healthy diet, healthy lifestyle, healthy, mental, emotional focus you know, cleaning up your toxic world, you know, air pollution, shortage, telomere.
Water pollution, shortage, telomeres, you know, cleaning up those five phase approach. Yes, you are effectively dealing with telomeres just by the sake of reducing the things that cause them to shorten. But I'm not sitting here pushing my product on anybody. I teach people about it. And I'm not sitting here telling people, you have to take my product too, prevent aging if you, but you know, people were looking for something other than drinking coffee all day and keep going.
And like, I just want to feel a little bit, I, you know, I say, well, you could try my product. And you know, in most of the time people are like, you know, we have people just set up on auto ship and that it's just the cheapest way to get it. And they automatically get it shipped to them every month at a discount.
Bryan Carroll: [00:31:34] Perfect. Is there any final things that you want to make sure that we know about when it comes to anti-aging and telomeres?
Dr. Darrell Misak: [00:31:41] Well I think that I, you know, I think you talked, you, you know, you talked about inflammation and stress, you know, stress is the key. To realizing that that leads to the inflammation processes and the turmoil that leads to any type of aging or poor health inflammation process.
Right. What are your stresses? And so you, you know, you gotta step back, you gotta identify what those are. So I teach a process. I look at people's blood. I gotta dry blood up on the microscope behind me. I look at live blood, moving around, look at cells. I'm looking for stress patterns. When I look at people's chemistry, I'm looking at stress.
What Oregon systems are handling stress. Where are the deficiencies? What does the body need when I'm talking to people about self-awareness, I'm looking at stress patterns, you know, you have your stress. Oh no. It's uncle Jimmy, you know. Well, why does that create that stress in you? Why do you allow it to do that?
The only person who's responding to it that way is you. And you're responding to it in a stressful way, because how you've trained yourself to respond. That's where Nicola para comes in and says, Hey, let's, let's take a step back and let's kind of observe what's going on. And then let's, let's really look at whether this is the true stress or how you're trained yourself to respond to that stress is the stress.
If that makes sense. You know, so, you know, I want people to learn to know you, how do you define and want you to be, and what steps are you taking to become you? And, and when it comes to health, what health do you desire? And are you willing to make the choices to get there? If you're willing to make the choices, I show you a way.
I do I do I, am I a healer? I teach you a path and as you stay on it, guess what I observe, what I say is I teach health and I observe restoration is what I do. You know, I don't have some magical bullet take my product and you're going to, you know, your, your, all your ailments are gonna go away, you know?
No. Have we seen people have things go away? Yeah. But that's not the, the goal is to say, why is it happened? Look at the tenants of natural medicine and look at why things are happening and move in there. So identifying those stressors is the key in diet environment, mental, emotional, physical, spiritual, you know, where am I stressed?
You start dealing with that. You are going to add years to your life period.
Bryan Carroll: [00:34:15] Perfect. I love it. And my final question for you is what is your vision of what healthy looks like and what are three things you do daily to reach that vision?
Dr. Darrell Misak: [00:34:23] What does healthy look like to me? You know, it's, it's a wellness, it's an aspect of satisfaction.
It's a piece, you know, it's an aspects of not allowing inner turmoil or your world to dictate who you are and how you feel. You know, so things that I do you know, one is I stretching and meditating finding time to get quiet, relax, stress. You know, I have found that my body is not doing everything that I used to want it to do, and that stretching and, and relaxing is key for me, you know, and breathing, you know, so yeah.
I, I T I could turn around and say, jumping in my hyperbaric chamber on a regular basis, it helps, you know, but yeah, three things is eat, making the right food choices. I eat the wrong foods. I'm ready to take it out. I, I, my skin still breaks. I can get pebbles on my back cause I eat wheat, you know, you know, you're not supposed to break out at my age.
I'm 35 and dyslexic figure it out from there. Right. And so but you're not supposed to break out. So making correct food choices, so try eating healthy, drinking water, you know, that's three things is, is, you know, you know, do I take my supplements in consistently? And, you know, many people, you take your stuff home and start feeling better.
I don't need those, you know, and I'm, I I'm guilty, you know, I'm human, but I realize, you know, I, but those supplements do help me because I know where I can identify what I need through testing. You know? So certain minerals, certain vitamins, I know that I need, you know, but but yeah, just consistency with finding time to relax, quality sleep.
You know, that quiet time for you just putting things in my head and putting things in perspective, right. And, and making healthy food choices on a regular basis of what I know. So the better you go from farm to table the better choices you're making for yourself.
Bryan Carroll: [00:36:24] Awesome. Well, people can find out more about [email protected], which is M I S a K, and then also Vite allometry.com, which will also have all this in the show notes so that people can see how to spell [email protected] slash 1 5 5, but if you would like 10% [email protected], then use code.
10. All right, Dr. Musak. Thank you so much for coming onto the show. I appreciate you sharing this information. I think the anti-aging industry is super interesting. Just the direction things are going and what we're learning about our genes, our telomeres, and everything else. So thank
Dr. Darrell Misak: [00:37:01] you. You're welcome.
It was great.
Bryan Carroll: [00:37:04] So I just got the product from doc Muzak, the vital allometry product. So I haven't had a chance to test it out for you guys to let you know how well it works. But if you do want to see [email protected] slash anti-aging, and that will take you right over to.
Doc me website. So you can learn more about Vite allometry. There's a lot of interesting stuff coming up in the anti-aging space. We just talked about telomeres, but there's a lot of stuff coming out about peptides and how to use peptide therapy, which we'll have an episode coming out in a little while all about that.
So definitely. Keep an eye out for that anti-aging space because it's very fascinating, the different stuff that's coming out. Now, none of this is going to prevent you from aging. Let's make that clear. We haven't reached to that point. And I don't know if we'll ever reach that point or if we actually want to reach that point, but it'll allow us as we age to.
Not age ourselves as quickly as what would typically happen if we did nothing. So a lot of this will just make it. So as you age, life is a little bit nicer. Your skin might look nicer, your joints might feel better. So that's kind of the direction anti-aging currently is. So you don't really feel your age once you reach a certain age point.
In the next episode, I have Dennis Berry on the show. So let's go learn who he is and what we'll be learning about. I am here with Dennis Barry. Hey Dennis, what is one unique thing about you that most people don't know? Ooh,
Dennis: [00:38:41] well, I'd love the beach. That it's my happy place. I'm happiest in the ocean. It makes me happy.
It makes me smile.
Bryan Carroll: [00:38:49] And what will we be learning about in our interview together?
Dennis: [00:38:54] That it's okay to take care of yourself. And that there's a difference between being selfish and taking care of yourself. And we all need to take care of ourselves to be more effective for the people in our life.
Bryan Carroll: [00:39:07] In a, what are your top three health tips for anyone who wants to improve their overall wellness and wellbeing?
Dennis: [00:39:15] Well, I focus a lot on body minded spirit, so I say it's hard to narrow it down to three, but stop eating sugar, drink as much water as you can. And D do some sort of exercise per some heavy exercise could be going for a walk for some it's a CrossFit, but, or sort of some, it's a happy medium, but. Eat less move more.
You'll become happier.
Bryan Carroll: [00:39:39] Dennis is a great guy to talk to, and we really got deep into addiction and recovery and how to work with people that we know that might have addiction issues and be able to set healthy boundaries and be able to navigate that addiction side, especially if we don't really understand it.
So if you are going through addictions and you want to get out of it, or if you know someone that's addicted. Or have addictive personalities and trying to figure out how to manage those types of people. Then you'll definitely want to listen in on the next episode. So until then keep climbing to the peak of your health.
