Joovv Interview with Dr Mercola

Notes from Joovv Interview with Dr Mercola

  • (00:00) Walking on the beach
    • Ken Cooper book on aerobics (main endurance, running) in 1968
    • At that time, exercise wasn’t used for therapy. Std medical advice for someone who had a heart attack was bed rest for 6 weeks.
    • Focus on cardiovascular activity is counter-productive; many elite endurance athletes suffer cardiovascular problems (because you can exercise too much)
    • Better to move throughout the day
    • Had incapacitating low back pain that nothing helped until stopped sitting all day and started moving
    • Started walking on beach and taking vitamin D.  During winter, walk at solar noon; in summer walk at 9AM.  Get negative ions from the ocean. Read 150 books a year.
  • (04:00) Grounding not good in high EMF environment because it makes you into an antenna and attracts EMF
  • (05:30) Levels of EMF are 1000x higher than in house
  • (06:00) NFA 1000 for body voltage measurements
  • (07:55) Acousticom2
  • (10:46) Don’t sleep with your cell phone on near your head
  • (12:00) dangers of blue light
    • Dermatologist advice to wear sun screen is wrong.
    • Importance of vitamin D.  Best from the sun.
    • Blue light is very efficient because it doesn’t generate heat.
    • Wear blue light blockers
    • Iristech.co – screen blocker
  • (15:30) Photobiomodulation (PBM)
    • Studies show clear biological benefits of certain frequencies; better sleep, more energy, less stress, decrease DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness)
  • (18:00) Three most important things to improve your health
    • drink clean water (not tap water)
    • eliminate processed foods
    • movement throughout the day (don’t sit or stand all day)
    • timing of eating: compress eating window to 6-8 hours, 16 hrs a day not eating; metabolic benefits because at 16 hrs you start to deplete many of the sugar stores (glycogen in the liver), trains the body to access fat stores
    • 5 day water fast, once per quarter; profound benefits for metabolism
  • (22:00) books coming out
    • Super Fuels – deep dive into fats; difference between omega 6 and 3
    • Keto Fast;  fasting is a powerful detoxification; everyone is exposed to chemicals just going outside; not enough just to live cleanly; need to detox regularly
  • (23:30) Easy Water
    • Structured water – question value of drinking it, rather need to be exposed to infrared light or heat to structure the water in your body; infrared penetrates deeply; sun, near-infrared heat lamps, Joovv device
    • drinking water isn’t enough in and off itself; the water has to get into the cells, so drink water with electrolytes; use creatine to improve intracellular hydration; Creatine Monohydrate (microcrystaline, very fine powder that dissolves in warm water); if the creatine doesn’t dissolve, it will cause metabolic challenges to the kidney
  • (29:02) Health journey
    • Started in 1968 with running.  Lots of mistakes: Low fat, margarine, sugar
    • Went to med school.  Classmates were there to treat disease, I was there to get people healthy
    • People should have the freedom to kill themselves, not pass laws trying to force them to be healthy
    • It’s usually pretty simple stuff
    • We’re exposed to 10^18 more EMF radiation than 100 years ago.  Foolish to believe there won’t be some adverse biological consequences.  Most people didn’t have cell phones 15-20 years ago.
  • (32:00) Travel
    • Increase use of molecular hydrogen, CBD oil and magnesium.  Activates ARE (Anti-oxidant Response Enzymes) genes.  Addresses the oxidative stressors (the mechanism by which EMF/cell phones cause damage).
    • Use a sleep mask to block out the light.  Ear plugs.
    • Developing an EMF tent to block electrical and radio frequency fields
    • Unlike houses, commercial buildings have code that requires electrical wire to go through metal conduit.  Primarily for fire safety but more expensive.  The metal pipe blocks the fields creating your own little Faraday cage.  So in a hotel room, unplug everything.
    • Florescent lights are worse then LEDs because of the broader spectrum and more powerful electrical fields.
  • (39:00) Exercise
    • Two workouts each week with personal training moving heavy weights.  Other days just movement.  Pull-ups for nitric oxide dump (videos on Mercola’s web site).  Vigorous exercise of big muscle groups releases nitric oxide stored by consuming beets and arugula.  Thins the blood, lowers blood pressure, improves immune function, anabolic stimulant (builds muscles).
    • Sit-ups, push-ups; swim in cool water gives dopamine rush afterwards.
