Male Hormones: How Testosterone and Toxins Mess With You! – Tracy Gapin, M.D.

In this special Asprey Archive episode you’ll learn that while yes, testosterone fuels energy and performance, it’s not the be-all and end-all solution for men’s health woes. A systems biology approach considers many other aspects and provides a broader perspective about what’s going on with you. This conversation featuresboard-certified urologist [Tracy Gapin, M.D.] (https://drtracygapin.com/) He joined us in 2022 for this episode to discuss new ways for men to improve their health and performance. He uses epigenetic coaching, hormones, peptide therapy, biometric monitoring, and unique nutrition and lifestyle interventions. In his book, “ [Male 2.0™: Cracking the Code to Limitless Health and Vitality] (https://tracygapin.clickfunnels.com/sales-page3260117) ,” he says medical school, residency training and even a two-decade career in urology and surgery specialties didn’t teach him how to get to root causes of men’s issues and solve them. He had a health crash of his own at 42. Since neither he nor his doctor had good answers, he went on a quest of discovery and change. He founded the [Gapin Institute for High Performance Medicine] (https://gapininstitute.com/) and created the proprietary [N1 Performance Health Program] (https://gapininstitute.com/individual/) to go beyond conventional options. This conversation goes even further into what creates epigenetic signals that affect the function and expression of your genes. You’ll learn, too, that your mindset, stress and environment—and how you do or don’t control those things—have everything to do with your energy and focus.If you’re aiming for higher performance, Dr. Tracy suggests a trifecta that makes sleep a priority, builds resilience to stress, and creates consistent behaviors with intention.

A Blueprint to Overhaul the American Food & Pharma Systems – Calley Means : 1146

Today, Calley Means joins the show to march onward on his war path to changing the incentives of modern health. He’s a champion of food and lifestyle practices as medicine—and, in May of this year, he’s putting out a new book on the subject which we outline today, called Good Energy. His sister, Dr. Casey Means, is the co-author of Good Energy. You know her from a past appearance on this show and as the founder of Levels so this mission really is a family affair in the best way possible. Going from a food lobbyist to the other side of the fence, Calley is a deeply serious and dedicated champion for the people. But he brings much more to the table today than a polished delivery and a new book; he is also the co-founder of True Medicine, which works to connect tax-advantaged spending to healthy food and exercise. It’s helped hundreds of thousands of people access affordable care by leveraging the convoluted systems currently in place to block them from doing so—no easy task. In this conversation, Calley lays the foundation for our food culture as it stands today—bleak, corrupt, poisoned, sick, and getting sicker. We deconstruct the layers of federal agencies and historical precedent that have brought us to this point, and we’re direct in our suggestions (demands) on how to fix it. And all the facts are laid bare. Dots are connected in broad daylight, on network television, and within the algorithms that power our social feeds. Our kids are at stake, and the only option is to take affirmative action on what we know is right.

You read that right; this episode isn't just for dog lovers—it's a deep dive into longevity for humans, too. Dr. Matt Kaeberlein, who's the CEO of Optispan and a key figure in the Dog Aging Project, brings a wealth of knowledge from his distinguished career in aging and healthspan research.

Where Quantum Science Meets Spirituality – Jewels Arnes : 1144

I’m excited to welcome back Jewels Arnes, an author, ascension coach, and the founder of BioQuantum Skincare Technology. Jewels has more than 30 years of experience in energy medicine and intensive consciousness work. In today’s episode, Jewels explains scalar waves, ORMUS, and the quantum level. She shares how these concepts all contribute to her BioQuantum Skincare line and the intention she poured into the products. We also talk about how and why Jewels moved away from psychedelics and regular meditation, and how she tunes into frequencies without them. Plus, we get into the spiritual ego, how to master your triggers, the frequency of DMT, and Jewels’ role as an ascension coach. Unlike my analytical brain, Jewels sees the world through frequencies, so this was a fun conversation with fresh perspectives.

The Science of Supper: Transform Your Health Through Family Meals – Shawn Stevenson : 1142

Today’s guest is none other than Shawn Stevenson. If you’re not already familiar with Shawn’s work, he’s the author of the USA Today National bestseller Eat Smarter, the international bestselling book Sleep Smarter, and the creator of the widely popular health podcast, The Model Health Show. Shawn is one of those guys who embodies peace and calm, after an impressively transformative journey stemming from a background of health challenges at least as severe as mine. After recovering, he became a researcher and nutritionist experienced in biology and nutritional science. We dive into a crucial element of biohacking I am always keen to highlight—friendship, or in this case, community. Based on research from Shawn’s latest book, Eat Smarter Family Cookbook, we talk about his current mission on the path to wellness: creating a culture of wellness around the dinner table, how communal meals impact our health and longevity, and filling the void of connection we all so desperately need these days. Shawn shares insights from his own family’s dinner table, his tips for implementing family meals into your weekly routine, and the encouraging science and data behind how it supports physical and spiritual nourishment, nervous system regulation, stress management, and more. If you like this episode, I encourage you to go pick out a good cut of meat and cook food for someone you care about—or simply do anything that's an act of service that nourishes another human being. Here’s to cultivating strong relationships, imbuing our food with love, and honoring the act of nourishing ourselves and our families.

No Grain, No Pain: Why Removing Gluten is Key to Improving Your Health – Dr. Peter Osborne : 1140

Today, we're diving into a topic that's on everyone's mind, but often misunderstood: gluten. Joining the show on this gluten-decoding mission is none other than Dr. Peter Osborne, aka the Gluten-Free Warrior. Dr. Osborne is a powerhouse of knowledge in nutritional health, particularly regarding gluten sensitivity and food allergies. As the founder of Gluten Free Society, the author of the bestseller, No Grain No Pain, and the host of the Glutenology MasterClass Series, he's at the forefront of functional medicine, helping countless individuals combat chronic and autoimmune diseases. His insights are crucial for anyone navigating the complexities of a gluten-free life. In this episode, we explain why gluten isn’t good for anyone—even if you don’t have symptoms or a diagnosed celiac problem. As a foundation, we lay out the differences between gluten sensitivity and celiac disease, covering the surprising connections between dairy, gluten allergies, and mold. Dr. Osborne also highlights why common gluten-free substitutes like corn, oats, and rice aren't the safe havens we wish we were. You’ll hear about the nefarious ways Big Food is keeping our country sick and how to start taking charge of your own health in simple, free ways. Dr. Osborne shares his recommended diet, the rule of thirds, and how to effectively shift your eating habits. He recognizes the frustration and struggle many people face in finding effective professional help, and shares his tips for spearheading your own healing while collaborating with competent professionals.

Akashic Records 101: The Simple Spiritual Practice You Haven’t Heard of…Yet – Laura Coe : 1139

Today we’re talking about something a little different—the “weird,” esoteric, metaphysical stuff. I’m joined by Laura Coe, who was a successful healthcare tech entrepreneur before selling her company and returning to her passion for philosophy. She is now an author, certified life coach, and Akashic Records reader. Never heard of the Akashic Records? Laura explains exactly what they are, and how they can help you understand yourself on a deeper level to find more joy, peace, and prosperity in your life. We explore the big questions… Who can access the Records? How do you know if they’re even real? Then, we get into the nitty gritty… How do you learn to read them? What can you ask and not ask? Can they help you sell your house or make more money? Laura and I also talk about how to tap into your intuition as an entrepreneur, the stigmas against spirituality, and why more of us than we think probably have psychic gifts. If you’re skeptical of this stuff, I’m going to ask you to suspend your disbelief and listen with an open mind. Laura’s perspective will give you a lot to think about. Why not give it a try?

Today we're talking about testosterone replacement and unpacking the novel concepts of progressive overload and variable resistance training—both methods to gain, and keep, muscle mass in your body without living in the gym. I’m joined by strength expert, entrepreneur, past guest of the show, and PhD, John Jaquish. John has spent years researching and developing improved approaches to health. Inventor of X3, a technology that is proven to develop muscle much faster than conventional weight lifting with the lowest risk of joint injury, Dr. Jaquish’s methods are used in training the world's most elite athletes as well as Olympians.

What You’re Getting Wrong About Exercise – Sal Di Stefano : 1134

I’m pumped to welcome one of the hosts of the Mind Pump Podcast, top trainer and entrepreneur Sal Di Stefano. Mind Pump pulls back the curtain on the health, fitness, and nutrition industries, cuts through the pseudo-science, and offers science-backed solutions for enhancing performance while emphasizing health. Sal started his journey in the gym at age 14, and I admire how he’s steadily grown a meaningful business around biohacking fitness. On today’s episode, we take on some weighty topics like weight training vs. cardio, why veganism is dangerous, and why reverse dieting may actually be the key for results. Sal explains his fitness philosophy, which focuses on functional movement, reframing your mindset around exercise, and consistency above all else. We also get into the nutrition side of things. Sal and I break down how much protein you should be eating per day, plus our favorite proteins—and the evil ones we avoid. We also talk carbs. Do they make you fat? How do they impact performance? What are the best sources? Then, we get fired up talking about how you can fire up your metabolism. This episode is for everyone, from gym newbies to serious bodybuilders.

Today’s show is a masterclass in improving your skin without going under the knife. I’m excited to welcome back Dr. Rob Whitfield, an Austin-based plastic surgeon who specializes in breast implant removal surgeries and advanced cosmetic procedures. He invented the famous “No-Cut” Facelift, which revolutionized non-surgical facelifts for a more natural appearance. I worked with Rob on a “No-Cut” Facelift, and he removed excess skin from my back after my weight loss. I got to be the guinea pig, and now I’m sharing everything I learned with you. On today's episode, I recount my experience and results with these procedures. Dr. Rob explains what a “No-Cut” Facelift is, plus other non-surgical procedures to tighten fat, remove excess skin, and reduce wrinkles. We talk about radio frequency-assisted lipolysis, SoftWave therapy, Morpheus8, and a whole lot more. Plus, we get into foods that hurt your skin, injectable vs. topical peptides, and biohacking skincare. Basically, it’s everything you need to know for younger, healthier-looking skin.

Insidious Inflammation & How To Fight It – Maggie Berghoff : 1131

Inflammation is at the root of everything. More inflammation means less energy and a higher risk of every disease. Today, we’re digging into exactly why inflammation is so insidious with functional medicine nurse practitioner Maggie Berghoff. Maggie is a USA Today National Best-Selling author of the book Eat to Treat: Your Three-Step Plan To Reduce Inflammation, Detoxify Your Life, And Heal Your Body. She is also the founder of wellness supplement and non-toxic home line DETOXDaily. In this episode, we talk all about inflammation—what causes it, how it hurts us, and how to combat it. We explore all the different types of inflammation, including physiological vs. psychological inflammation– and dig into how inflammation intersects with hormone health, thyroid function, and metabolic syndrome. Maggie also shares her perspective about shedding shame around eating, and why perfectionism can be even more toxic than actually toxic foods. Plus, I share a lot of horrifying (but medically useful) information about urine. You’ll be equally intrigued and grossed out.
