Does 5g cause damage to our bodies? Brian Hoyer helps to explain how EMFs work

71- 5G is Here, But is it Dangerous To Our Health with Brian Hoyer

The 5G network is on its way, and soon all major cities will have 5G towers on every single block. That isn’t an exaggeration, while 5G frequencies are much more powerful than previous frequencies, the range at which it travels is much shorter. It is estimated that there will be a 5G tower on nearly every single block in all major cities. This will mean there will be more radio frequency radiation available for our bodies. So why is 5G being installed around the world? And since this is a train that can’t be stopped, what can we do to protect our body from the radiation?

69- Spice Up Your Sexual Fire with Jaiya and Ian

The honeymoon stage of a relationship lasts anywhere up to one year. This is the time when the relationship still feels fresh, you keep learning new things about your partner, and the sex is still fun.

Then something changes. Things start to go stale, especially in the bedroom. Sometimes you notice the changes, other times life gets so busy that you don’t even notice that the intimacy has dropped.

While we think this won’t happen to us, the statistics show that it most likely will happen. It isn’t because we don’t want to be intimate with the other person, it’s because life happens.

But, it doesn’t have to be this way. Especially if you understand your partner’s erotic blueprint, then you will more likely be able to turn your partner on to keep the intimacy alive!

66- How to Get Rid of Bloating and Gas with Ken Brown

Excessive bloating and gas and the different health issues that both underlies and might arise from them is something that a lot of people suffer from, but not a lot of people feel comfortable enough to openly discuss about.

More often than not, people tend to brush it off as an annoying but somewhat tolerable inconvenience. But as it turns out, bloating and gas is not just a mere nuisance. It could be, at the least, an early warning system, or worse, a full-scale distress signal from the gut. So if you are presenting with these two symptoms, it is critical that you start on a more involved investigation.

65- How Homeopathy Helps For Detoxing with Dana Ullman

65- How Homeopathy Helps For Detoxing with Dana Ullman

Homeopathy is a practice that has been around for hundreds of years. While many people have some hard opinions on the efficacy of homeopathic remedies, there are quite a few principles they use that are used in conventional medical practices as well.

Homeopathic remedies are used to help stimulate the immune system to create antibodies for similar illnesses. This process in a way is similar to how allergists will use allergens as a way to build up someone’s defense against those allergens.

What many people expect from a remedy is something to have chemical components that can fight off an illness, similar to medication. However, medication is designed to counter an illness, whereas homeopathic remedies are designed to strengthen the internal defenses of the body.

64- Improve Your Thyroid to Fix Fatigue with Heather and Damian Dube

64- Improve Your Thyroid to Fix Fatigue with Heather and Damian Dube

Have you ever gone through a phase in your life where you gained weight rapidly, or your energy plummeted, or your hair started to fall out? If so, these are some common signs of thyroid dysfunction.

If you ever had these symptoms but went to your doctor and had labwork done, and everything came back in the normal ranges, then you are in the same boat as many other people. In most cases, doctors are only testing for one marker, known as TSH. This marker doesn’t tell the entire story of the thyroid.

In fact, even with a full thyroid panel done, it can give a practitioner a lot of information to work with, but it still doesn’t tell the story of the thyroid. On top of other organ systems in the body that can impact the function of the thyroid, your emotional and mental state can also be a factor.

62- How to Improve Your Performance Through Breath Using the Wim Hof Method with Bob Soulliere

How often do you think about breathing? During the day, probably not very much, but you probably notice it when you are doing any kind of strenuous activity. However, we breathe all day long, and it is a vital function for our survival.

We follow training protocols to improve our strength and cardio capabilities. When we don’t feel great, we look for natural remedies or medications to make us feel better. There are so many ways that we try to improve our health, yet when was the last time you purposely worked to improve the way you breathe?

Oxygen is important to the body, we all know that. Without it for a couple of minutes, we can lose brain function or even cause death. Oxygen helps to transport nutrients through the body, flushes out toxins, and creates energy.

The Wim Hof Method is a fantastic way to improve the way you breathe. Through these methods, you can retrain your body to better utilize oxygen and to strengthen the muscles needed to breathe efficiently.

Sara Russell helps those with hypermobile joints to improve their health

59- Helping Those with Hypermobile Joints with Sara Russell

When you imagine someone who is hypermobile, what comes to mind? Do you think of a contortionist whose hypermobile joints can bend in ways unimaginable? Or what about the people who can pull their finger back all the way to their wrist?

While both of those examples are of people with hypermobile tendencies, it does not mean that they are immune to joint pain and health issues. In fact, many people with increased flexibility tend to run into a lot of health issues, including digestive disorders.

Evan Hirsch Helps you to fix your chronic fatigue

58- Fixing Your Fatigue with Evan Hirsch

Many people are starting to suffer from a condition known as chronic fatigue. Chronic fatigue is defined as fatigue that doesn’t go away with rest.

Fatigue is a very broad topic that can have many different causes. Naturally we feel some levels of fatigue from the stress of daily life, but in many cases this should be remedied with adequate rest. Therefore chronic states of exhaustion is caused by something more underlying, such as an undiagnosed illness.

57- Weight Loss and the Microbiome Connection with Kiran Krishnan

The gut microbiome is one of the most powerful regions of the human body. A lot of research is coming out about the importance of the bacteria in the body, and Kiran Krishnan is one of the researchers leading the way for all of us.

The microbiome is made of around 1500 different strains of bacteria that all work together to keep the body healthy. Of the 1500 strains, we only understand around 10% of their total functionality.

With more research coming out every single day, soon we will be able to understand how each strain of bacteria impacts the body.

56- Sicker by the Generation with Michelle Perro and Vincanne Adams

56- Sicker by the Generation with Michelle Perro and Vincanne Adams

You may have noticed that we have quite a few episodes that are focused on children and ways to improve their health. In fact, it saddens me that there are so many children out there who are suffering from conditions with little understanding of why it is happening. This is why we keeping bringing up the topic about ways to make children healthy again.

I focus on children a lot because they aren’t in the best position to know what’s best for themselves. They go off of what they have been taught, so it is important as adults that we stay up to date with why each generation is getting sicker.

A common theme that you may have heard between episodes is that the food we are eating is not the best for children, or even adults. Processed foods are stripped of nutrients, sanitized in ways we don’t want to know about, and are designed to make us snack more often.

55- New Discoveries of the Ocular Microbiome with Dr Harvey Fishman

It seems like every single day we have more advancements in the research done on the human microbiome. Word has spread about the gut microbiome, and the genitalia microbiome. But new development is coming out in areas of the body we least expect it.

Such as the Ocular Microbiome, better known as the bacteria of the eye.

Researchers have discovered an ecosystem of the microbiome within the eye. In these early stages of research, the eye is showing to have a much smaller population of bacteria than other areas of the body, such as the gut. This does not mean that the ocular microbiome isn’t important. In fact, it could tell us more about how to protect the eye and how to prevent eye disease.
