Frustrating isn’t it? What are we suppose to believe?

Welcome to Dynamism Biohack, my name is Dr. Matt Hammett Wellness & Nutrition Expert, Lifestyle Trainer and Movement Enthusiast. In each week I’m going share with you how to make the right nutritious choices despite conflicting expert opinions where I help you to discover how to unlock your inner aborigine or your inner greatness. Thankyou for spending this time with me today, so let’s get into the training.

THE DEMARCATION POINT

Let The Five Pillars of a Dynamic Health consciously design your life. Step outside the Caged people’s mindset and don’t just end up somewhere. Be present, here in the moment and choose where you’re going to go. That is high performance. In this training were going to mark your demarcation point. This is the point where you say, enough. That’s it. I got this.

Michael Jordan used to talk about being in the moment while on the basketball court. It’s about where he’s going to go on the basketball court. It’s not by accident. It is a consciously designed thought at the moment. We have to get you at the moment and consciously moving forward.

And that leads me to Dynamism Biohack: The Demarcation Point.

A Dynamic person has a healthy mind that has a positively engaged mind. An engaged mind is your aim to be free from the past and in the present moment. To be positively engaged because nothing else matters anymore. Not to say your past doesn’t have an impact, or that’s it’s not an important part of your journey, but right now we are at a new demarcation point of your life. Choose to be free at the moment. Also, consciously direct yourself in a positively engaging experience to be something you are creating. Ask yourself, “am I fully present in my emotional body right now?” “Am I right now, positively engaged with this person?”

Dynamic people train themselves to be more positively engaged. They view their social life at work, spouse or kids as an opportunity to train their minds to this new art. They know that a very high functioning psychology is one which is consciously designing and directing itself. WE need to ask these types of questions every day when the opportunities arise.

Let me provide some examples. By asking questions like, “Am I positively engaged with my child right now?” “Am I present and vibrant in my body right now?”

These two simple questions multiple times in a day will transform your experiences in life. I now it’s simple. The simple things in life like asking consciously directed self-questions that are positively engaged will change the quality of your life.

At this point in our story of how to become a Dynamic Person using a consciously directed mindset and grow your Connect driver, I would like to give you a simple exercise. The first step in this exercise is; you need to be emotionally engaged right now. If your in your car you cant’ do this, but if your sitting, stand up and move your body, shake out your hands like your about to hit a baseball in front of forty thousand people. Put yourself in that environment as a major league ball player taking his practice swing. Are you there? Are you emotionally present in the moment? If you’re not emotionally present right now, make up a similar technique like this and get there. The point is this, just by choice you can make yourself get there in your emotions, your internal spark.

Dynamic people have POSITIVE ENGAGEMENT

The next moment you have with someone, I want you to approach them with this question in mind. Am I positively engaged with this person, if not, why? What is the baggage or anxiety or frustrations with this person? What am I carrying on me that I can’t be present with this person? You see with these questions, you can turn a jerk into a fan. That choice is yours.

Dynamic people never allow someone else’s negative energy affect their energy. It is easy to do when you are unconscious, but guess what, you are consciously directing your conscious mind and positively engaged to be free from all that negativity. That is the secret of success as a Dynamic person. Understand this; you don’t have a healthy mind, you generate it. A power plant does not have energy; it generates energy!

Being free, conscious and engaged is made by your conscious direction and body movement. That is what is going to heighten your health promoters at sustained levels in your life that’s high performance and health promotion. Demand this of yourself; I challenge you. You can have this kind of energy in your life every day. You can have your kind of energy every day. You decide to have it and consciously choose to get it and consciously ask yourself questions.

Asking yourself questions and developing mental cues to help free your mind to think along with moving your body better is the secret sauce for a Dynamic person.

Mental cues you create in your mind are like little anchors in your head that give you the stabilization to know where to focus your attention.

If you don’t have happiness, you misunderstood something; you have to generate happiness. That takes work and taking decisive action. The ability to be happy is a choice that needs to be pursued; it’s not by chance. It’s not going to land in your lap.

Neuroscience recently has incredible discoveries about brain health and happiness. There are certain things we can generate that cause us to make more hormones or stimulate individual biomolecules in our brain that gives us the sense of pleasure and happiness. The release of dopamine gives a sense of joy. Your brain is a 3lb anticipation machine; it’s always waiting to see what’s going to happen so it can release information. When we get a “bit of what we want,” dopamine is released, and we feel happy. Introducing new things into your life gives a dopamine release seen on brain imaging scans.

We already discussed how movement increases and releases dopamine. The most amounts of dopamine come through movement, especially movement of the spine. But, just by how you think and what you focus your mind on can release dopamine. Why not positively engage your mind while moving and get the optimum release of dopamine? Here is a quick self-question exercise:

1. What new things are you going to learn from this training?

2. What new events can you go to this month? Might be a play. Could be a movie. Maybe a new town to visit. What is it?

3. An engaged and happy life is going somewhere socially that is new, where can you go? Maybe line dancing? How about Karyoke? What is it for you?

The next time you feel overwhelmed in life, or learning about this training, put yourself in a Dynamic person mindset. Allow that feeling to evolve into an experience for learning, challenging, confronting obstacles mindset. Focus your energies on the effort needed in a positive, constructive way, not as a drag.

You need to know that no one is happy all the time. The ups and downs of life are going to happen, the sooner we embrace them, the better. No need to worsen our situation by telling ourselves we shouldn’t be feeling off. Now, although our tendency to experience lows and lousy emotions do not ever completely go away, as we evolve our five pillars of a dynamic health and mature emotional health, our lows tend to be not quite as little or as long. If we crawl under our covers into a whining little ball, we are in big trouble. But if we can courageously confront our challenges, we’ve got the opportunity to learn about what behaviors are working for us and which aren’t, and we can do something about it.

You need a strategy. You need to make your plan, and I have already given you the tools to create your plan. In one of the most dramatic experiments in psychology, they took a group of drug addicts. They were studying them during withdrawal- at a time when the energy required to control the urge to take drugs severely compromises their ability to undertake nearly any other task. They were testing their skills in post-rehab to help them find employment after they are released. One group was asked to commit to writing a short resume before 5:00 PM on a particular day. Not a single one succeeded. A second group was asked to complete the same task, but also to say exactly when and where they would write the resume. 80% of that group succeeded.

Therefore, like this study validates, it is better for you to create your plan for your specific lifestyle situations, than it would be for me to create it for you. At this point in the training, you have enough tools and strategies from this to begin creating your plan.

1. Take a moment and make a detailed plan with the when, where and how you’re going to implement the strategies you have learned thus far in this training. The critical thing so far is to make a concrete, growth-oriented plan, and stick to it because doing so will put you into a Dynamic person’s mindset.

2. Every night for the next week, set aside 10 minutes before you go to sleep. Write down three things that went well today and then also why they went well.

In this exercise of growing your five pillars, this exercise is imperative that you do this. You may use a journal or a computer, but it’s important to have a physical copy of what you wrote. Step number two can be simply things.

For example: “my husband made dinner tonight.” Why: “Because he sees that I am stressed with the kids.”

“My sister had a healthy baby.” Why: “She took care of herself during the pregnancy.”

This exercise may seem awkward, but it came from the Godfather of Positive Psychology, Martin Seligman, and so DO IT! He recommends doing it for one week to get you into the habit; you will feel less depressed, happier, and addicted to this gratitude exercise and it will grow your five pillars of a Dynamic health.

Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.

Frustrating isn’t it? What are we suppose to believe?

Welcome to Dynamism Biohack, my name is Dr. Matt Hammett Wellness & Nutrition Expert, Lifestyle Trainer and Movement Enthusiast. In each week I’m going share with you how to make the right nutritious choices despite conflicting expert opinions where I help you to discover how to unlock your inner aborigine or your inner greatness. Thankyou for spending this time with me today, so let’s get into the training.

Most of us at some point in our lives experience the caged life. Even a Dynamic person experiences glimpses of a caged life. The difference is this, a Dynamic person views every moment in life as a second chance and in every moment of that second chance they choose to be more present and vibrant in their life. In this training, I’m going to explain how being present and in the moment is the most important thing you can do day to day while you engage your five pillars of a dynamic health.

The ability to be present and in the moment is the big deep secret toward becoming a Dynamic person. Presence is the secret to high performance in life. In fact, if you get nothing more from this training, but the ability to focus more consciously and for the next year and the next sixty years of your life, let it be the capacity to be more present. With presence comes more success, more health, more progress.

And that leads us to Dynamism Biohack: Presence.

PRESENCE

Everything you want more in your life can only come from heightening your ability to get more present in the moment. Once you are present in the moment, you are free from the past; you are free from all anxieties about the future, and you are free to be right here, and once your there. You are in the healthiest state of your mind. Spiritual teachers almost always speak about “freeing the mind.” Freeing the mind means being fully present in the moment where you’re not drifting in the past and carrying all that baggage anymore.

What is the purpose of therapy?

Therapists are trained to dwell in your mind taking you to the past and bring out all that anxiety and give you a diagnosis. By the way, I’m all for diagnosis, but in this training, we are defining Health Promotion and how to get it. I am not concerned about the diagnosis; leave that to the sickness/disease experts. Forget about your diagnosis for a moment, were discussing the Health-Promotion Model, not sickness/disease or crisis management.

The Health-Promotion Model is about how to achieve your highest potential in health and wellbeing regardless of your diagnosis. We are looking at sustained levels of potential and the ability to stay there for a lifetime! To do that, you got to learn how to get there. To get there, you have to demand it of yourself, and the only way you’re going to get there is with presence. So forget about your diagnosis for the moment and get present and free your mind about what is possible.

The only way to grow your Think driver of a Dynamic perosn is to have an open, high-performance mind that is present. A Dynamic person develops a freely directed mind and a consciously directed mind.

A Caged person usually is driven by the automatic system to “unconscious mind.” Of course, as we go thru out the day, there are many things that we do automatically which is controlled by the autonomic nervous system. But the “unconscious mind theme” has been overplayed in the last 50 years of psychological research.

The unconscious mind is important, and it is running in the background. But do people overly focus on that? Yes. Now, I’m not a psychologist, I get that.

But guess what, even if we fully diagnosis and understand every lever that is pushing your unconscious mind. Here is the kicker, when it comes to changing anything in your life there is a critical moment called a decision, which is called choice. While researching for this training and in the development of this new model I have patients in all walks of life who are therapists and pastors over the years. I’ve interviewed the experts on this, and this is what I’ve learned. May I be gentle for a moment, if you are a therapist, I honor your work, it is crucial.

What my research confirms, as we go through a diagnosis and an understanding of someone’s past, all of that effort is to reach one goal and one goal only; to bring them back into the present experience. Once they are in the present, they are more capable of making a decision or more present in the experience to tolerate the current experience and to decide and consciously choose their new emotions, their new feelings, their new behaviors and in many cases their new identity. All of the work of the past brings us right back here in the present in which now we have to design our lives consciously.

A Dynamic person knows that a consciously directed mind is the healthiest mind. A mind that says, “Here is who I am right now. Here is what I am about.” Dynamic people choose consciously today who they are going to be from now on. It is not about who they were, what they heard from someone else, or what they are supposed to be by other people’s aspirations. Nor is it about how they have been hurt, or frustrated by in life. It is not about what they succeeded in or failed at in the endeavors.

In the end, your diagnosis and all that other stuff do not matter. This present moment of the situation matters. In the current moment of choice, we now have the conscious ability to reach our highest levels as conscious human beings. The gift of a free mind, free will from God or the creator of the Universe, whatever it is that evolved us or created us into who we are, we have the ability consciously to choose our thoughts, feelings, emotions, and actions. That is what William James meant when he said, “the greatest finding and discovery of humankind.”

Human beings have the ability to engage their Think driver and consciously choose their thoughts and feelings we can opt to be happy and engaged right now. You can choose right now at this moment, positive things or you can choose right now at this moment to think about war. You have the ability to feel empowered right now, not because of anything that has ever happened to your past, because you take it in and turn it on at the moment. That is a free mind, and it’s a consciously decided mind.

You are consciously choosing who and what you are in the now, released from anything in the past. That is incredibly powerful. That is the goal of all of the therapy in most case. Again, I’m not a therapist, and my job is not in taking you back to the past, my job is taking you forward to the future!

Dynamic people know what to do at the moment. So at the moment we must make a new decision, a new choice, and consciously design and direct our mind. I will help you do that throughout this training. For the next year, I’m going to hold your hand and make sure you are always consciously deciding where you are in the present and where you are going.

Now, is it easy to slip back into the Caged people mindset, the unconscious fears or worries, anxieties or baggage? Yes. That’s why you need a coach. You need a mentor because I am always bringing you back to being present. Where do we want to go? Who are you in this moment? How are you choosing to think, feel, behave and interact with in life? How are you using your Five Pillars of a Dynamic Health?

My job as your coach and the creator of this training is to direct you consciously. The largest part of our brain is the prefrontal cortex that is our entire forward part of our brain. In any other animal, humans have the biggest prefrontal cortex as the most extensive section. Our cortex, especially the prefrontal cortex is the largest of any other species giving us the advantage and ability to be more conscious about our choices and how we conduct our lives. Dynamic people view their prefrontal cortex as a unique gift to be used in daily life.

My job, is to get you thinking differently about your life, your situation, your relationships. My job, is to focus you on the decisions you need to make to improve you. My job, is to get you to believe in yourself, because I do. Look if your listening to this, your here with me, your present with me. Sadly, if I took 100 of my patients, only 1 of them actually commit to this training in this detail. And your here with me, present with me, and I honor you for that. You’ll see as you learn how to Think like a Dynamic person, you will learn by what I mean when I say that health is a fruit that is grown and earned. If you don’t have health, what do you have. The truth is, it’s simpler than what we have all been led to believe; that is the purpose of this training, to distill the bold points from what all the experts agree on, into a simple process, a methodology that just works.

If you are a current patient in our office, thank you so much for your confidence in us. If you are not a patient, I certainly would love to meet you some day. Goto our website www.newlifefamilychiropracitc.net and also I just want to remind everyone that we got the same 24 hours in a day. I’m no busier than you are. but if your goal is to live a happier, healthier and fuller life, you’ve got to learn to manage your self, and that means managing your movement which drives your energy.

When we better manage our energy, were better able to be more present and enjoy our life, were better able to manage our five pillars of a dynamic health. You deserve a life that is peaceful, that is balanced, that is happy, where you have tons of good health.

The health that you need, the health that is on demand when you need it most. you see because health doesn’t come to you, it comes from you, it is a fruit that is grown and earned. and i know we all heard the genetic cliche, the blame it, name it, and tame it with a drug approach; but the truth is; the solution doesn’t lie with more drugs and surgeries; the solution lies with you. You know it’s not so much of a healthcare crisis as it is a self care crisis in our world today. Be more present in the moment, and you will have more energy, vibrancy, free from all that anxiety.

Thank you so much for spending this time with me. I love you, I love hearing from you, so don’t forget to reach out to me. Let me know what you thought about this episode. Do so, by whatever is your favorite social media platform. Send me a message their, let me know that you listened to this episode and what you thought of it and as always i appreciate in advance anyone who is kind enough to right a review. That is the ultimate gift, I appreciate you very much for that, I can’t wait to do this again next week. I now your getting so much value from this, and I am honored to do it for you. Im Dr. Matt Hammett reminding you to lighten up, move better, and live fuller until next dynamism biohack.

Most of us at some point in our lives experience the caged life. Even a Dynamic person experiences glimpses of a caged life. The difference is this, a Dynamic person views every moment in life as a second chance and in every moment of that second chance they choose to be more present and vibrant in their life. In this training, I’m going to explain how being present and in the moment is the most important thing you can do day to day while you engage your five pillars of a dynamic health.
The ability to be present and in the moment is the big deep secret toward becoming a Dynamic person. Presence is the secret to high performance in life. In fact, if you get nothing more from this training, but the ability to focus more consciously and for the next year and the nex...]]>

Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.

Frustrating isn’t it? What are we suppose to believe?

Welcome to Dynamism Biohack, my name is Dr. Matt Hammett Wellness & Nutrition Expert, Lifestyle Trainer and Movement Enthusiast. In each week I’m going share with you how to make the right nutritious choices despite conflicting expert opinions where I help you to discover how to unlock your inner aborigine or your inner greatness. Thank you for spending this time with me today, so let’s get into the training.

In this training, were gonna learn that what we say about our self, to our self, matters most. Were going to look what makes Dynamic people dynamic; and Caged people caged up. Were going to learn how to gauge our own belief about our self so we can tap into our own inner greatness and become a dynamic person. And that leads us to Dynamism Biohack: Altitude Thinking.

The vocabulary of animals may seem foreign to us; they may not be able to form words, but they can certainly communicate with one another. Most birds use songs and calls, and other animals use a combination of sounds and movements to communicate, like the frog.

Primates such as monkeys and gorillas have an advanced system of communication that includes vocalization, hand gestures, and body language. However, even monkeys and gorillas stop short of what human primate animals have been able to achieve- spoken language.

Our ability to form a limitless number of thoughts into spoken word is one of the things that differentiate us from any other species on the planet.

Language developed into beliefs. And whether or not we believe in our self, determines your destiny. Remember, it’s not genetic. It’s the environment; it’s how well you eat, move, think, connect, and cope with stressors in your environment that matters. To do all that well. You have to have a strong belief, that you can do it.

So lets look at HUMAN BELIEFS develop.

A simple belief about yourself guides a large part of your life. This belief permeates every part of your life and makes a conscious person grow and at the same time, a Caged person fixated.

Carol S. Dweck Ph.D. is the leading researcher in the field of motivation and renowned Professor at Stanford University. She has done rigorous research about this simple belief. Her studies clearly define what a Caged person might be thinking versus a Dynamic person. Dynamic people have what she calls a “growth mindset,” and Caged people have a “fixed mindset.”

Caged people believe they are not worth anything, and that everything they do is on the line, and failure is something to avoid at all costs. Conscious people or Dynamic people embrace the challenge and see them as opportunities because they know those challenges can help them reach their highest potential. They consistently act to the limit knowing that failure is not really “going for it.” For over twenty years, Dweck has spent her life showing that the “view you adopt for yourself” profoundly affects how you lead your life. A simple belief about yourself has the power to keep you Caged or Dynamic, fixed or growth.

The Dynamic people have a growth mindset they feel that the “hand you’re dealt is just the starting point for development.” They believe the core characteristics you are born with can be cultivated through their efforts and improved. Therefore Dynamic people are more conscious and realize that what you are born with is just a starting point. They believe that with diligence, patience and persistence over the long run they can develop an extraordinary amount of growth and power no matter their circumstance in life or health.

Dynamic people are also rational about their optimism about growth. They realize that not everybody can become Beethoven or Einstein, but they believe that a person’s real potential is unknown. They view life as potential to be realized only with years of passion, hard work, and training. Caged people would never consider putting in that much hard work because they need to be able to show results immediately. They would interpret any potential failure to produce extraordinary results the first time out as proof that they are an idiot. The whole idea of working hard to Caged people would be a sign that they are not great. They love the cliché phrase, “it must be genetic” as an excuse not to try.

When human beings use their Think driver, we enter a new world. It is one of two worlds, the Caged people or the Dynamic people. You have a choice to be a Caged version of yourself or a Dynamic version of yourself. These mindsets are only beliefs. They’re dominant beliefs, and yes they can hold you back for decades if you allow them. They only exist in your mind, and you can change your mind.

And remember, if you like this training, click that like button or that love button. Leave us a message as to how this training has changed your life; I really look forward in hearing from you soon.

Malcolm Gladwell, the bestselling author, has suggested that “as a society, we value natural, effortless accomplishment over achievement through effort. We endow our heroes with superhuman abilities that lead them inevitably toward their greatness.” Michael Jordon didn’t pop up dribbling. In fact, can you remember that old Nike commercial where he talked about how many missed shots he had? We live in a world that cherishes so-called “natural” talent; you often hear the phrase, “it is in his genes” expression. That cultural illusion teaches us that we are born a genius, or we have got no hope! Now you know, that it is not true.

Dweck put it best, “Do you know that Darwin and Tolstoy were considered ordinary children; that Ben Hogan, one of the greatest golfers of all time, was completely uncoordinated and graceless as a child; that the photographer Cindy Sherman, who has been on virtually every list of the most influential artists of the 20th century, failed her first photography course? (Did you know) that Geraldine Page, one of our greatest actresses, was advised to give it up for lack of talent?”3 She explains the irony of it all. The top is where the Caged people hunger to be, but it’s where many Dynamic people arrive as a by-product of their enthusiasm for what they do.

For the Caged people, everything is about the outcome. If you fail, or not you’re best; it’s all been wasted. But for Dynamic people, they value what they’re doing regardless of the outcome. The secret formula for succeeding in life and this program comes from exercising your Think driver like a Dynamic person by embracing opportunities to grow yourself and your health. Allow the results to come naturally as a by-product of your dedication to giving your greatest gifts in the most excellent service to the world.

THE BAROMETER FOR ALTITUDE THINKING

It takes me a bit over 30 minutes to drive to work each day from my home. The route I take tends to be busy. The speed limit is only 55 mph, but the traffic seems to average around 70 mph. This makes it interesting on days my barometer for altitude thinking is off, as I tend to be the aggressive driver. The number one thing that seems to set off my barometer is what I had or didn’t have for breakfast.

Did I take the time to prepare for the week as I suggest in this book? Did I allow outside influence, like my kids, to keep me from proper week preparation? Bad eating almost always equates for spiritual unhappiness and a feeling of defeat, a huge barometer purge.

Your awareness and proper altitude thinking are preparation. It starts with ‘Carpe Noctem’. ‘Carpe Noctem’ is the Latin phrase which means “seize the night.” It too is used to encourage someone to make the most of their time, often in the sense of working into the early hours of the morning to get something finished.

It begins with the introduction of your day. How do your best days start? Why are some days better than others?

If you look back a few days, even months, you may notice that some days seem to start off better than others which may purge your attitude barometer. What made the difference? Was it in your control, or outside your influence?

One thing I have discovered with my attitude barometer other than my road rage is how well the day starts. If my day does not get off to a good start, it very rarely finishes with a good one. Once a day creeps silently away from us, we get stuck in survival mode. Most certainly, a day can get away from us in many different ways. The truth is a day will almost certainly go wrong unless we consciously take the time to focus the day first thing in the morning. We have to ‘Carpe Noctem‘. Should we forget, or get off on the wrong foot, we need to check our attitude barometers, something I call Gauge Checking.

Gauge Checking is more than just noticing your attitude. Gauge Checking is the heart and soul of The Five Pillars of a Dynamic Health. We simply ask ourselves questions based on the rules you will learn from this book. For example, Gauge Checking involves self-talk and asking this question: ‘How well am I eating, moving, thinking, connecting and coping’ with life compared to myself when I am not making the conscious choice.

How do your best days begin? What is your Gauge Check? Most people don’t know, or they just go with the flow. They might have an idea, but they simply never thought enough about it or experimented with it. One of the most important things that set Dynamic people apart is they know how their best days begin. They use this knowledge to give focused direction to their lives at the beginning of each day, and they Gauge Check a few times during the day.

The third driver of Dynamic people is How Well They Think. More specifically, it is a daily commitment to meditation. Dynamic people begin their day with some meditation, a spiritual book, yoga or some other routine that focuses their day. Some settle down in a chair with a cup of black coffee. Others jump on a treadmill or bike. Me, it’s going for a swim. Some focus their day by reading scripture or an empowering book.

But all of them begin their day with the mediation of some kind, however brief. Meditation makes Dynamic people spiritually healthy for the day.

How do your best days begin? Try starting your day with meditation, however brief, and observe how it impacts the rest of your day.

If you are a current patient in our office, I love you, thank you so much for your confidence in us. If you are not a patient, I certainly would love to meet you some day. Go to our website www.newlifefamilychiropracitc.net and also I just want to remind everyone that we got the same 24 hours in a day. I’m no busier than you are. but if your goal is to live a happier, healthier and fuller life, you’ve got to learn to manage your self, and that means managing your movement which drives your energy.

When we better manage our energy, were better able to be more present and enjoy our life, were better able to manage our five pillars of a dynamic health. You deserve a life that is peaceful, that is balanced, that is happy, where you have tons of good health.

The health that you need, the health that is on demand when you need it most. you see because health doesn’t come to you, it comes from you, it is a fruit that is grown and earned. and i know we all heard the genetic cliche, the blame it, name it, and tame it with a drug approach; but the truth is; the solution doesn’t lie with more drugs and surgeries; the solution lies with you. You know it’s not so much of a healthcare crisis as it is a self care crisis in our world today.

Thank you so much for spending this time with me. I love you, I love hearing from you, so don’t forget to reach out to me. Let me know what you thought about this episode. Do so, by whatever is your favorite social media platform. Send me a message their, let me know that you listened to this episode and what you thought of it and as always i appreciate in advance anyone who is kind enough to right a review. That is the ultimate gift, I appreciate you very much for that, i love spending this time with you. I’m Dr. Matt Hammett reminding you to lighten up, move better, and live fuller until next dynamism biohack,

Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.

Frustrating isn’t it? What are we suppose to believe?

Welcome to Dynamism Biohack, my name is Dr. Matt Hammett Wellness & Nutrition Expert, Lifestyle Trainer and Movement Enthusiast. In each week I’m going share with you how to make the right nutritious choices despite conflicting expert opinions where I help you to discover how to unlock your inner aborigine or your inner greatness. Thankyou for spending this time with me today, so let’s get into the training.

In this training, I’m going to explain what we are doing to make this movement a reality beginning in our community and worldwide and how you can get involved too. So many people want to jump on board and improve their health and life, improve their family time and relationship time. but they just don’t know how. they are so overwhelmed with information, they don’t know how to start. Were gonna dive into all that and show you how to get involved with this movement. The natural health, wellness/prevention and health promotion solution.

It’s a THE NEW PARADIGM

Equipped with this knowledge, and our new understanding of human genetics, the Human Genome Project, we begin to understand that Genetic Congruent Living is the only evidence-based healthcare system worthy of study and implementation. This is a huge game changer!

The next priority is to develop a system that incorporates the evidence-based sciences we have learned from Human DNA and implement a lifestyle program that can reverse, prevent, and even cure disease. I needed to find a way to teach people about this new system because what we are doing as a community is not working. All we have to do is go over the health stats to see that. We need world-class programs in each of the five areas of Dynamic people.

The next priority, and probably the most important; I needed to convince doctors from various disciplines that this new model is indeed the future. That is the purpose of our local chapter of the non-profit national outreach program, Pathways Connect. Its primary purpose is to connect various doctors together with the community who wish to live well with natural medicinal practices. This training is the central piece of this movement. To accomplish my goal, I decided to leave the medical jargon out of this training. Simplicity is bliss, not ignorance. Therefore, I am taking the Latin out of the language and putting it in terms most people can identify with and implement immediately. The earth is not flat. We believed it was for centuries. That is where we are in history. It’s not genetic. It’s epigenetic. It’s the environment. More specifically, it’s Your Five Pillars. That is my slogan, and it is the motto of choice for people who are making conscious decisions about what they eat, how they move, what they think about, how they connect with others, and how they cope with stressors in daily life.

The last priority, and I admit, I was more than a little skeptical, was to explore the vision my mother had of me when she spoke to me the day before her heart attack. My last memory of my mom was when she told me that she had a dream that not only would I author a book, I would become a speaker, and even host my own radio show. This show is born to honor my mother. My mantra for this movement is simple. It is not about me. This movement got personal for me, the day I lost my family tragically. That last day I wiped my dying dad’s tear from his eye, promising him that i would do something about chronic disease, then a year and a half later after I found my mom dead from a heart attack, to a month later, saying goodbye to my grandmother who was dying from a medical mistake. All three of these deaths didn’t need to happen, they could have been prevented. It was that awakening I had that helped me find my calling in life, not in raising the dead, but helping the living people Lighten up, Move better, and Live fuller…

The big question I had, was how to EXPAND THis new health promotion MOVEMENT. This new wellness/prevention solution that doesn’t focus intervention on sickness and disease, but educates the community about what makes people healthier and how to prevent and stay well for a lifetime.

Now consider the problem at hand. Ignorance of natural medicine and lifestyle chiropractic care is massive. We are aware that the more someone knows about the predatory circumstances of Big Food, Big Pharma and Cui Bono (to whom profits), the more likely he or she is to become highly engaged in health and wellness and natural medicine. Most people don’t know where to start.

Is the solution to this problem more educational classes or better adult educational experiences? No. Why? Because you only share so much at a seminar or webinar and most people only remember about 10% of the material. Not to mention that most of these educational schools and seminars are funded by Big Food and Big Pharma or some sister interest group. This doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t have seminars and webinars and present them in world-class form. We should. These types of learning programs will be a game changer for some, but not for most.

Is the solution to the problem, better school cafeterias? No. Why? We have tried to implement a new system, and it got us nowhere. The truth is the responsibility is up to the parents and the students. This doesn’t mean we shouldn’t provide world-class lunches for our kids. We should. This just means these will not likely solve the problem of how little people know about conscious choice, Genetic Congruent Living, and natural medicine.

If your goal were to teach as many people about healthy conscious choice, Genetic Congruent Living, and natural medicine over the next ten years, you would need a simple method that was portable and practical for millions of people. The answer is a good old-fashioned books, a portal radio show and a magazine along with a community support and discussion group. Your listening to the show, you can learn more about how to get our books by visiting our website at newlifefamilychiropractic.net. As for the local discussion group, if you are around NWI you can visit our local chapter of Pathways Connect.

To learn more about that group, visit www.PathwaysConnect.Rocks.

As far as reading is concerned. If you read five pages of a great educational book on each of the five pillars every day, you will be astonished how your knowledge and joy for this movement will begin to grow; just five pages a day. I know what you might be thinking, “I can do that!” Five pages a day for a year is a little more than 1,800 pages in that year, over 18,000 pages in a decade, and over 45,000 pages over 25 years. That equates to 228 books with an average length of 200 pages. Reading 45,625 pages on each of the five pillars of a dynamic health is overwhelming. Most people would feel intimidated to commit to reading 228 natural health and natural science books. But five pages a day? We can all do that. Like the Korowai people, use your Kaizen- or small incremental continuous improvement- it makes incredible things possible.

If you implemented five pages of reading each day, how would your life be different one year from now? How about five years from now, 10 years from now? How would the American healthcare system be different if each of us read five pages of a great book on exercise, nutrition, healthy mindsets, and spiritual connection each day? You see. I am not off trying to do the impossible. I am here making the incredible possible.

It is merely a game changer- practical, simple, powerful, transformative. We are doing it at present inside and outside our clinic. We are doing it online with presentations, seminars free of charge. We are doing it every month at our local chapter of Pathways Connect where we offer support and discussion on these issues. We are doing it through various social media through this show, how ever you found us. We are doing it while we give one of the most valuable experiences you will ever receive in your lifetime: a chiropractic adjustment.

Five pages a day. I know you are saying, “I can do that!” Imagine reading five pages a day, and attending a community support and discussion group once a month on these issues.
Practice Kaizen, a continuous learner, and encourage everyone you know to do the same. One of the best things about this commitment is that there are answers and practical implementation strategies you can do. Dynamic people fill their hearts and minds with the fruit of these truths and goodness provided by those answers.

And remember, How do you eat a dinosaur? Dig it up, and take one bite at a time.

If you are a current patient in our office, I love you, thank you so much for your confidence in us. If you are not a patient, I certainly would love to meet you some day. Goto our website newlifefamilychiropracitc.net and also I just want to remind everyone that we got the same 24 hours in a day.

Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.

Frustrating isn’t it? What are we suppose to believe?

Nutrition isn’t just about what you eat. Nutrition has to do, not only with food, or how well you eat, it has to do with how well you move. And in this training, it has to do with how well you Think. You know, if you think about it, like the rest of our science system. The bulk of human psychology research also came from rats. We all know about the carrot and stick principle, the rat maze. Think about that. Again, we can’t determine health for human beings from rats. To determine health for humans, we need to tap into our inner aborigine. In terms of developing a healthy mind and a healthy psychology, we need a timeless strategies, a system that works. I’m gonna talk about such a system found in some of our current ancient people from Papua New Guinea, through lessons from them, were gonna talk about how to develop a system that works for you. It’s one thing to learn about how to get and stay well, it’s a whole nother enchilada on actually doing it. And that leads us to Dynamism Biohack: How Do You Eat a Dinosaur?

THE KOROWAI PEOPLE LIVE CLOSE to the border of Papua New Guinea. The majority of their clans live in tree houses on their isolated territory. The Korowai are hunter-gatherers and horticulturalists who practice shifting cultivation. They have excellent hunting and fishing skills.

Until 1970, they were unaware of the existence of any people on Earth beside themselves. This lack of awareness makes their culture an interesting group to study because it proves to be less adulterated. Their extensive views of 140-foot high tree dwellings seen towering over other trees in the Indonesian rainforest makes it hard to believe that they were unaware of other humans. However, when you are living in one of the least explored jungles in the world, these things can happen. The Korowai people have been building their towering tree houses since long before we ever had skyscrapers, on the isolated island of New Guinea, part of Papua in the Indonesian Rainforest.

I remember growing up dreaming about having a tree house. My brother and I would try to experiment with our versions, which usually consisted of one or two 2x4s placed high up in our tree in the backyard; not much of a tree house. But for us, we built it, and we were proud. The Korowai people built their tree houses with banyan or wonbom trees, which made excellent working materials similar to modern support beams.

They had a system they borrowed and perfected from their ancestors, not just in hunting skills, but also in tree dwelling. The treehouse building skills are one of the fascinating examples of continual improvement ever seen in any tribe observed to date. These tree houses were constructed not with load-bearing machinery, but rather using the most basic, almost prehistoric, of tools and with expert climbing skills of the Korowai. Tree houses were filled with as many as a dozen people, along with all sorts of additional family pets. The Korowai people battled the harsh environment of the rainforest, so they built their homes high up in the trees which allowed the tribe to escape the often-unbearable disease-carrying mosquitos and other invaders.

The tree houses also protected from flooding and in their religion, gave protection from evil spirits or troubling neighbors.

These trees were built in relatively short time, with a small crew guided by a leader who seemed to have specialized knowledge as to how to place each pole and bind them together. Watching them build a tree house is very much like watching an NFL football game, complete with specialized players, coaches, and specific play designs for each unique circumstance.
Not all of the houses are level with the treetops. Some are between 8-12 meters high with a single notched pole they used as a ladder.

The homes could last up to five years, as long as they don’t perish in an accidental fire.7 The BCC traveled into the most private part of the Indonesian jungle to examine and film the Lahaou clan of the Korowai tribe building their tree houses. The beautiful footage they captured was video documented for Human Planet, along with a fascinating behind the scenes look.

I have already talked about our need to tap into our inner aborigine in terms of how we eat, and move. But should we really try to mirror our ancestors in terms of how to Think? I mean, we have advanced in our brain chemistry; haven’t we? If we look back at our past, yes, our advances in education, our industrialized way of life helped us put a man on a moon, and one day on mars. Your not gonna find anai building a tree house that will get them to the moon. Of course, we all get that. But in all honesty, we we really sit down and think about this, our ancestors teach us a lesson about our brain. We have toxins all around us in our air, water, soil, and environment from both the food and chemical industries that is insulting and damaging our brain. Even the grains we eat today, our toxic to our brain as we learned about Dr. David Perlmutter’s work in grain brain in a recent show. So, compared to our hunter gatherer ancestors, they have healthier and bigger brains than you and me.

Quite frankly, I talked in a different show about how the human brain has shrunk significantly compared to our hunter gatherer ancestors. Of course we don’t want to go back to the outback in terms of their limited education, but in terms of brain development; because we currently live with smaller brains, it’s worth learning a thing or two about our past and mimic patterns that may help us heal our brain in the present. With that said, could you build a tree house the way the Korowai people do? I bet you couldn’t. They may not have had the luxury of going to school the way we did, but inside their skulls, is a healthier and bigger brain than us. So we want to pay attention to that, to understand where we came from, and what we need to do, how we need to interact in nature and in our lifestyle that resembles the body and mind of an ancient.

Again, trying to implement a system of living that mirrors our ancestor’s lifestyle like the craftsman of the Korowai people or our ancestors can be overwhelming when we live in an comfort oriented culture.

I think at this point in this training, everyone can agree that understanding humanity and implementing a healthcare system that deals with humanity by mimicking the lifestyle of an ancient rather than dissecting rats and mice; tapping into our inner aborigine is the key to the future of health promotion for humans.

Remember, we all have a hunter gatherer genome, we have the same genetic requirements as the Korawai people. Living a life that is genetically congruent for humans should be the focus of our healthcare system.

And I Know it can very difficult in todays society. knowing what we should do, and doing it, is very perplexing.

So, to overcome the obstacles to developing a living and active knowledge of this ancestral way of life, we are going to turn to one of our key concepts the Korawhy people mastered: it’s called kaizen.

Kaizen is Japanese for continuous improvement. Kaizen is the soul of the Think driver, the third pillar of Dynamic people. The Korowai people are one of the greatest examples of Kaizen at work in human civilization. Therefore it is important to gain a deeper understanding of the larger concept and how we can unleash it for robust results in our modern lives and communities.

Kaizen is continuous improvement based on certain guiding principles our ancestors have been doing since man first walked on Earth: They are:

• Efficient processes bring great results
• Understand the current situation
• Speak with data, manage by facts
• Take action to contain and correct root causes of problems
• Work as a team
• Kaizen is everybody’s business

The Korawai people certainly understood the most notable feature of kaizen and that significant results come from many small changes which accumulate over time.

But, small changes have been misunderstood to mean that kaizen equates to minor changes. In fact, kaizen means everyone involved in making improvements. Dynamic people don’t use this as an excuse to go with the flow of the community. They use this idea to gather the community, to educate and implement a strategic method like a food coop, a gym group, a political rally or some other like-minded group inspired to make community changes.

Kaizen is a long-term approach that seeks to achieve small, incremental changes. Each change can be so small and straightforward that it seems insignificant at the time, but as you accumulate these little changes together over time, they become enormous. In the kitchen, maybes it’s taking out an ingredient and adding a healthier one. Instead of weekly grocery shopping, you shop every three days like the Europeans, getting fresh veggies. Just adding fresh vegetables to the dinner table is something we all can do.

Should you decide to run a marathon, you wouldn’t just get up one day and go. The first thing you would do is research how to train and prepare for it. There are many different approaches, but the one I am advocating is based on Kaizen because it is a lasting game changer. Most of my patients who start training joke with me about how they can’t even run for five minutes. I assure them that that is okay, and they should stick with the program. I usually start with something very simple. The first week I would tell them to run for three minutes and then walk for two minutes, alternating for forty-five minutes.

The next week I would tell them to run for five minutes and walk for two minutes. Sometimes, they wouldn’t have a desire even to go the gym. So I would ask them to lay out their clothes the night before. Not to worry about going to the gym, just lay out the clothes and shoes. Then in the morning, they would see the clothes laid out. Then I would ask, “why not put them on?” Still not mentioning anything about the gym. After they get dressed, maybe they feel a little more up to it, maybe they don’t. So I would ask, “why not go to the gym just to watch people, you don’t have to work out, just watch?” Most people, if they take the time to dress and go, will also engage in the activity. What you will find, the hardest part of this is dressing and showing up. In fact, in my experience, it is over 95% of it.

You see if you can make small incremental changes each week for the next six months, you will finally be ready for the marathon. That’s the spirit of the korawai people and the power of kaizen. The hardest part of doing anything new is getting started. The same goes for each of the five pillars of a Dynamic Health.

A space shuttle uses 96 percent of its fuel during takeoff. It’s getting started that is difficult. That is why we need systems put in place. The process the Korowai people use to build a tree house is a system that involves incremental improvement to help accomplish an enormous task little by little. Each system in the tree house evolved over trial and error over time. It performed a difficult task slowly.

After investing over a decade of my life to practicing holistic medicine, the same recurring problem kept coming up. Our culture says we are sick or getting sick because of predetermined genes, or genetic destiny; the idea that we are born with health that it comes to us, not from us. It teaches people to live without the consequence, and it is making the sickness/crisis industry, the food industry, and its wedding partner, Big Pharma very rich!

I realized that if I am going to write a book or start a podcast, it must involve a simple system that anyone can implement, and it must be a complete game changer for the American Healthcare System.

I wanted to explore new ways of treatment that would increase our results and sustainability of our work. The priority, and after a decade, was the research behind this training.

If you think about it, before the Human Genome Project, over 86% of our medical research comes from laboratory efforts on rats, mice, and animals. According to the standards set up in 1910 when they standardized the practice of medicine, they instituted that evidence-based science; the random control trial would become the gold standard for medicine.

The fact is, at present, we have zero human trials. If you look at these rules, to have true random control trials on humans, we would need to breed human beings in a lab and study them over generations. That is true. Now I am not advocating such barbaric practice or standards. When we have over 30 million women, and children forced into sex slavery, and when more than 75% of humanity were slaves until the late 18th century, I could imagine someone or government could set up such a research facility. God forbid.

I only am bringing awareness that rats are not miniature humans and that most of the modern medicine today comes from rats. Each year’s Nobel Prize winner gets selected from their research conducted on rats and other animals. There is no algorithm, computer program, or technique that will guarantee that chemicals exposed to rats and animals, will have a similar effect on humans. None. Not a single shred of evidence in any peer review journal. Not one. and their never will be, because it turns out every single species on planet earth has a specific set of genetic instructions specific to that species. If you study a dolphin, you wouldn’t study a shark; you would study the dolphin.

The bottom line. We want to tap into our own inner aborigine, we want to live like an ancient without leaving our modern world. In the spirit of the Korowai people, we can follow their example by creating a system that works for us. In the upcoming training, I’m going to expand on how to do that. The first step in creating lasting change is to learn how to eat a dinosaur. How do you that? With one bite at a time… Understand.

Im Dr. Matt Hammett reminding you to lighten up, move better and live fuller, until next Dynamism Biohack.

Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.

Frustrating isn’t it? What are we suppose to believe?

NASA, GRAVITY, AND MOVEMENT

(NASA astronaut Jerry Ross with Dr. Matt Hammett. Ross is a veteran of seven Space Shuttle missions, making him the joint record holder for most spaceflights and the one person who has lived through the devastating effects of Gravity Deprivation Syndrome the most.) 

Ross has over 1,393 hours in space, including previously held record of 57 hours and 55 minutes on nine different spacewalks.

 

Loss of mechanoreception stimulation or movement stimulation is the big reason why NASA scientist Joan Vernikos tells us that an astronaut’s health depreciates when they leave Earth. She found it’s all about the force of gravity and body loads moving against their cells. Because most cells in our bodies and our brain have specialized equipment to sense the mechanical environment which is responsible for charging the brain and cells of our bodies, again in space health deteriorates.

 

In this training, were going to look at what NASA discovered about our sedentary lifestyles and how it surprisingly is similar to the gravity-free lifestyles of astronauts in space. In space, Astronaut’s health rapidly deteriorates outside of gravity’s pull. When we live in a sedentary environment, our health eludes us down a spiral path toward sickness. Without gravity and mechanical loading of cells, NASA astronauts in space muscles become weaker; immune systems become suppressed, and their sleep is disturbed. When they return from space, they have less stamina, they shuffle their feet when walking and have lost their sense of balance. They often have to be carried out in stretchers when they return to earth from space.

Why? Keep listening as I explain the Dynamism Biohack, NASA, gravity and movement paradox.

The answer is simple. When an astronaut goes into space, he or she obviously leaves the gravitational pull of life on planet Earth. There is no loading on joints without gravity, and their mechanoreceptors which charge the brain and cells of the body are not properly activated. NASA scientists found that “nothing speeds up brain atrophy like immobilization.

And here we are, an entire population voluntarily immobilizing itself with its sedentary, comfort-oriented lifestyle.

Gravity can’t help us when we’re immobile. And when we are immobile, are joints aren’t moving, and were not firing off mechanoreceptors which in turn charge our brain, cells and tissues in our body.

So they found that without movement and proper mechanical loads on the body quick atrophy of basically every health measure occurs. NASA calls this effect “Gravity Deprivation Syndrome,” and that sitting all day, immobilizing joints, every day has similar effects on us here on Earth. When we’re sitting all the time, gravity can’t do its thing because the mechanoreceptors in spinal joints which are required to move a lot aren’t firing off input into the brain and cells of the body. As a result, we age way faster than we should and make ourselves vulnerable to all the diseases we don’t want to get.

You see, MOVEMENT IS NEAT.

James Levin, a world renowned exercise physiologist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minnesota, coined the term non-exercise activity thermogenesis (NEAT). Levin’s concept of NEAT parallels with NASA’S research in space and gravity-related research. Regarding our total body’s energy expenditure, NEAT explains a much greater component throughout a typical day.

Conventional methods like high-intensity exercises such as walking, running, bicycling, or working out in a gym do not account for total body’s energy expenditure. NEAT is defined as the small, brief, yet frequent muscular movements one makes throughout the day, of which changing positions is the most efficient way.

Dynamic movements like standing, sitting, lying down a certain way, bending over to pick up something, squatting, stretching upward to take something off a shelf, changing your clothing, playing a musical instrument and practicing sign language or dancing are great examples of changing position.

In fact, NASA researcher Joan Vernikos adds “even movements as small as crossing and uncrossing one’s legs, waving one’s hands while talking, and fidgeting is helpful. It is these types of small movements and activities that do not happen enough when a person is habitually inactive” or when spinal joints are not moving properly due to subluxation of the spine.

Levine found that people who move around a lot all day, even if they don’t go to the gym or engage in intense exercise burn up much more calories than people who are sedentary. What was striking to the scientist was they even expend more calories than those who do go to the gym, but then spend the rest of their day sitting around. NEAT research today is well known for its role in identifying sitting with obesity and metabolic diseases like diabetes.

For example, if you do crossfit exercises 2 hours a day 6 days a week, but then sit at a desk all day; the crossfit exercise does not compensate for the time you spent immobile and sedentary.

But, check this out. People who don’t exercise at all, but they don’t have sitting jobs; they have jobs that require them to move all day long. The spend more calories than those who exercise and then sit all day. Here is what you need to understand.

Movement is not the same thing as exercise. Movement transcends and includes our exercise. If you eat a poisonous mushroom out in the wild, that is a toxin, it will kill you; despite what your nutritional and fitness habits are. I don’t care if your Mr. Fitness, if you eat something poisonous, it will kill you.

What you need to understand is that there is no exercise or nutritional product you can take to compensate for poison. It’s a poison. Immobilty is a poison, it always taxes our health despite how much you exercise. That is what you need to take from today’s training.

Scientist like Katy Bowman who are studying epigenetics (the effect of our environment on the expression of our genes) is creating a grassroots approach exposing what we now know is the most important variable if we want to optimize our well-being, movement.

This is what the leading world-renowned biomechanist has to say about movement and genetic behavior. “If you don’t move, your cells don’t get fed, they die. So now we have yet another reason movement is not optional! In addition to creating loads and modifying genetic behavior, the movement is an essential step in the process of oxygen delivery.”

This research from Katy Bowman that has nothing to do with chiropractic care and at the same time has everything to do with chiropractic care and the reason we have a primary care or first portal doctors who assess the movement of your spine and joints of the musculoskeletal system, chiropractic care.

Just like how a dentist is the only one who diagnoses and corrects cavities from teeth. Subluxation of the spine is only diagnosed from a Doctor of Chiropractic. Subluxation or loss of spinal joint function diminishes brain function and cellular function due to the faulty or lack of stimulation of these mechanoreceptors of the spine where they are most numerous. The adjustment charges and amplifies the brain and every cell in the body. Again, we just confirmed this from the world’s leading experts in neuroscience, biomechanists, and NASA.

In fact, the research I have just shared is evident enough to bring Doctors of Chiropractic mainstream as first portal movement doctors. The interesting thing, not one of this research I have pointed out has anything to do with chiropractic care! Interesting, isn’t it?

In our story so far, we are combing through the newest research from multi-various scientific sources that have nothing to do with chiropractic. From these sources, we understand that movement charges the brain and cells of our bodies due to the activation of sensory input throughout our body which activates during movement. We also learned that the most numerous areas of these sensors are located in joints of the spine. We are also learning that exercise is movement, but the movement is not always exercise. Movement transcends and includes our exercise. It includes things like getting up from our desk, doing some jumping jacks, stretching, walking, changing our posture, spinal adjustments and improving alignment, and a ton of other little things. A major point here is that Bowman says “tiny movement count” because tiny spinal joint movement charges the brain which in turn charges the mechanical equipment in most every cell in the human body. If we hit the gym for an hour in the morning and then sit for the rest of the day, our DNA suffers.

Although exercise is excellent and super important, we need to move more in tiny ways especially our tiny spinal joints. How much more? Funny question, because most of my patients whom I talk to who are excited about cranking out 300 minutes of exercise per week think they are far ahead of the pack and optimizing their health and wellness. Maybe they get that excited because they have been misled by rat science and sickness/crisis intervention experts. (Again, another reason we have to be careful when we use rat science as a measure of human health.)

However, when you compare human scientific data with our hunter-gatherer ancestors which serve as better qualitative research for health promotion, our ancestors moved a lot. In fact, our hunter- gatherer ancestors would move 8 -10 miles a day or around 3,000 minutes per week or at least 15,000 steps. That is ten times more movement than the local “gym rat” who comes in to see me wondering why their spine and health is suffering. You see the problem with our backs is not about
pain. The problem with our backs is about movement, and you can’t feel that movement between spinal joints.

Only a Doctor of Chiropractic is trained to locate specific spinal segments not moving properly and adjust them back into motion turning on the essential mechanoreceptive input; and again, generating the charge for the brain, mitochondria, and cells of the body.

Let me illustrate this with the story of the orca. Our current non- movement lifestyle contributes to subluxation of the spine and may impair the sensory input that charges the brain and our cells. The example of the orca or killer whale in captivity provides an interesting explanation. If you visit Sea World and have an opportunity to see a captive killer whale, you will notice they have a nearly collapsed dorsal fin. This phenomenon is not found on a killer whale in the wild. When you keep them in a tiny enclosure never allowing them to plunge into the breadth and depth of the ocean they’ve evolved to swim in, this fin collapses. It is collapsing due to the sedentary lifestyle the killer whale is forced into. The fin collapsing is NOT a sign that the fin is no longer needed. The fin collapsing may be compared to every other organism that is forced outside its natural environment; remember the astronaut?

These are signs of a stressor causing a mal-adaptation and introducing disease due to the inability to feed its genes the necessary essential nutrient requirement for movement.

The example of the Astranauts and the Orca can be used to explain how mal-adaptation causes stressors to all of the Five Pillars of a Dynamic Health. Which of course we can measure by how well we eat, move,, think, connect and cope with stressors in our daily life.

As soon as we put an animal in captivity, it stresses every animal when we force it into a lifestyle outside the natural ecosystem of that animal it has evolved from. Humans are no exception. Humans are now living in captivity and guess what?

Our genome is built as wild primate animals, requiring the wild; and modern civilization is holding us captive just as it holds the zoo animals, and the Killer Whale captive! The whale looses its fin, the human gains chronic disease. Do you see the connection? Bottom line, we need to tap into our Inner Aborignee and move often every day.

Im Dr. Matt Hammett reminding you to lighten up, move better and live fuller. until next dynamism biohack.

NASA, GRAVITY, AND MOVEMENT
(NASA astronaut Jerry Ross with Dr. Matt Hammett. Ross is a veteran of seven Space Shuttle missions, making him the joint record holder for most spaceflights and the one person who has lived through the devastating effects of Gravity Deprivation Syndrome the most.) 
Ross has over 1,393 hours in space, including previously held record of 57 hours and 55 minutes on nine different spacewalks.

 
Loss of mechanoreception stimulation or movement stimulation is the big reason why NASA scientist Joan Vernikos tells us that an astronaut’s health depreciates when they leave Earth. She found it’s all about the force of gravity and body loads moving against their cells. Because most cells in our bodies and our brain have specialized equipment to sense the mechanical environment which is responsible for charging the brain and cells of our bodies, again in space health deteriorates.

Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.

Frustrating isn’t it?  What are we suppose to believe?

In this training I’m going to pick up where most experts dropped the ball on.  Our movement has a direct bearing on how our bodies are shaped, how our brains evolve, and how our cells function.    Most  people  have  very  little  idea  of  how  movement works in our bodies, or how much movement we need for natural biological  function.     Movement  is  being  deemed  an  essential nutrient for Homo sapiens as it creates a unique opportunity to both heal and maintain a level of optimum health.  In other words, our movement stimulates all of our life expression in human beings.  In fact, research has shown that if we stop movement; the brain would depreciate into comatose.

And that leads us to Dynamism Biohack: The Movement Paradox: Where most experts dropped the ball.

So WHAT did recent SCIENCE FiND ABOUT MOVEMENT that is so extraordinary!

Yes, there are evidence-based-ways to treat sickness/disease with palliative care. Or cover up the problem, a pill for an ill, the blame it, name it and tame it with a drug approach.  The problem begins with the conditions that make these solutions better for you are limited in scope and can come with harmful consequences.   That is a big reason adding a chiropractic perspective in health care was necessary in addition to making  postural  adjustments,  which  introduce  a  variety  of  new body loads and require different muscles to work by the activation of specialized sensors in the body called mechanoreceptors, which are found all throughout the body.  By their very name, mechano- having to do with mechanical or movement stimulation to the body is responsible for 80% of the baseline excitatory input or stimulation into the central nervous system.

Thats basic science, we’ve know that for years.  The central nervous system in large concerns with the brain and spinal cord, it is movement through these sensors that charges the brain and spinal cord with the energy to operate and communicate with everything in the body.  In other words, our movement stimulates all of our life expression in human beings.  In fact, research has shown that if we stop movement; the brain would depreciate into comatose.

As we discuss dynamic movement in this lesson and others to follow, I am going to pull research from the world renowned leaders in various fields of healthcare. Then I will add my perspective from various researchers in the field of chiropractic and thread the different evidence-based-sciences together to explain in detail how a doctor of chiropractic is a movement doctor and is necessary for every industrialized human being to be checked by a doctor of chiropractic, regardless of age or symptom  and  disease.

That’s a bold statement isn’t it.  Well, that is what I plan to explain with the upcoming training in these shows.  We  will  get  a  fresh  look  at  chiropractic pulled from various research that both has nothing to do with chiropractic  and  at the  same time  everything  to  do with chiropractic.     These  areas  of  science  will  include  the  world’s foremost experts in biomechanics, psychology, motivation, NASA, genetics and much more.

Most people including experts, do not know much about how DNA can be expressed differently depending upon movement. Evidence about how external factors impinge cells that change the expression of our DNA is swarming the literature.  Movement is the driving force that fuels everything else in our DNA and most every cell in our body.

We have 100 trillion cells in our body.  Our movement has a direct bearing on how our bodies are shaped, how our brains evolve, and how our cells function.    Most  people  have  very  little  idea  of  how  movement works in our bodies, or how much movement we need for natural biological function.

Movement  is  being  deemed  an  essential nutrient for Homo sapiens as it creates a unique opportunity to both heal and maintain a level of optimum health.  The question is, how much and what type of movement is required to drive healthy life expression in humans?

Katy Bowman is the world’s foremost expert in the emerging field of biomechanics.   She is a game changer in the area of epigenetics or how our environment affects the expression of our genes.   More importantly, she has nothing to do with chiropractic and is spearheading how movement influences our bodies even at a genetic level. She is leading scientists all over the world where most have dropped the ball.  She states, “With respect to disease, the human’s internal mechanical environment has been the least- discussed environment of all—a staggering oversight almost every cell in your body has specialized equipment just to sense the mechanical  environment.

Every  single  thing  our  bodies  do requires movement—initiated by our musculoskeletal system— to be performed with ease. Digestion, immunity, reproduction—all of these functions require us to move. You can eat the perfect diet, sleep eight hours a night, and use only baking soda and vinegar to clean your house, but without the loads created by natural movement, all of these worthy efforts are thwarted  at a cellular level, and your optimal wellness level remains elusive.”

Whether building organs or maintaining healthy adult tissues, cells use biochemical and mechanical cues from their environment to make important decisions, such as becoming a neuron, a skin cell or a heart cell. Scientists at UC Santa Barbara have developed a powerful   new   technique   that   reveals   for   the   first   time   the mechanical environment that cells perceive in living tissues — their natural, unaltered three-dimensional habitat.

“Knowing how cells respond to mechanical cues in the living embryo and how they physically sculpt tissues and organs in the 3D space will transform the way we think about developmental processes,” The bulk of that research is handled out of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at UCSB and senior author on the paper that reports this novel technique in Nature Methods. “Importantly, this knowledge will help us better understand healthy tissue homeostasis or balanced function, and the wide range of diseases that involve abnormal tissue mechanics, especially cancer.”

The growth and development of a living organism is a choreography of cellular movements and behaviors that follow internal genetic guidelines and specific biochemical and mechanical signals. All these events conspire over time to create a variety of complex forms and textures that make our tissues and organs functional.

Scientists have focused for decades on the role of biochemical cues in embryonic development,  because no techniques existed to measure the mechanical cues that cells are exposed to during the formation of tissues and organs”. Bowman teaches that “your body is never ‘out of shape,’ it is always in a shape created by how you have moved up to this very moment.”

We need to pay attention to the loads were putting on our bodies throughout the day, so we can get in harmony with how our bodies were designed to move.  The biggest fact most experts miss is that nearly every single cell in our bodies has specialized equipment to detect your movement and that your spinal motion charges the input into the brain and most cells in the body.

Most experts talk about the new research and our understanding of mitochondria.  Mitochondria are the conductors of our genetic orchestra that regulate how every cell ages, divides and dies.  They are  like  air  traffic  control  that  waves  the  flags  that  help  dictate which genes are switched on and which are switched off in every one of our cells.  They provide the fuel for establishing new neural networks.

Mitochondria may very well be the energy factories within our cells that control the fate of every cell, tissue, and organ in the body.  But a critical piece is often missed from experts dealing with the mitochondria. Pharmaceutical companies and Nutraceutical companies wish to create products based on this new data about the mitochondrial.

While they may be energy factories that require chemicals which could be produced by these two industries, there is an interesting piece of information that most experts have missed the ball on.   We have known for more than forty years from Russian researchers that something is required to fire up the mitochondria.  Forty years ago, the Russians discovered that mechanoreception produces two sets of mitochondrial activity.

They followed this research two years later and found that the energy processes are strongly involved with short-term mechanical impulses. In other words, movement causes mechanical loading that cues the neurological charge to the brain and turns on the mitochondria in our cells!

In our next training, I’m going to talk about what NASA has to do with movement.  Did you know most astronauts in space, in just 1 week, virtually decay at major health determining factors, to the point they have atrophied so horribly, they need to be carried out in stretchers when they return to earth from space.  Were gonna unwrap what human science has to say about gravity and movement next time.

Until then, LIghten up, move better and live fuller, I’m Dr. Matt Hammett, see ya next Dynamism Biohack.

Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.

Frustrating isn’t it?  What are we suppose to believe?

In this training I’m going to explain why 90% of normal brain function is stimulated through the movement of your spine and how we were designed to translate that motion every day.

OUR BRAIN IS PLASTIC NOT IN THE LITERAL SENSE of the word;  it’s  malleable,  shape-shifting,  and  moldable.    In  the  old world, science thought the brain was an organ that was hardwired and compartmentalized.  Today we know that the brain can rewire itself.   It can repurpose bits and pieces and adapt and grow.   The ability for the brain to rewire itself is called neuroplasticity.

You may heard of a similar term, neurogenesis.  But did you know that neurogenesis or the creation of new nerve cells happens through spinal motion?

And that leads us to Dynamism Biohack :  Rebuilding the brain Through Spinal Motion

You heard me correctly, your gonna want to tune in to this; SPINAL MOTION AND NEUROGENESIS or growing new nerve cells through the movement of your spine. Not a little bit.  Not kind of. But over 90% of it is generated through the movement of your spine.

You know, The concept of neurogenesis is even more revolutionary.   Science has  learned  that  new  cells  and  networks  of  the  brain  grow  as needed, very much as muscles grow with exercise and movement. Today  we  know  for  a  fact,  that  big  brains  coincided  with  the intricate physical movement of the spine.    Through time, evolutionary changes used biochemistry, which adapted from the environment to enhance muscles, movement, and brains.

To explore and further our understanding of neurogenesis we need  to  define  some  terms,  Yeah, im gonna get all stark trek nerdy geeky for a moment and use some big science terms; but again, i’m gonna then take out the latin so you can understand this stuff.  Fair enough?

So what are the terms.  Are you ready.  Here they are, their are 2 terms.  homeostasis,  and  hormesis. Homeostasis is an array of signaling mechanisms within the body that responds to a normal operating state bringing the body back to a normal state.  Hormesis is a biological response to low doses of a stressor, that improves the ability of the body to handle that stressor.  In movement patterns and exercise, we can apply the concept of hormesis.  Unlike homeostasis, hormesis does not return the body to a normal state.  It returns it to a better than the normal state.

Bodybuilding is a great example that best illustrates this point.

When we lift weights to build and rebuild muscle, heavy stress is placed  on  our  muscles,  a  process  that  breaks  them  down  by overload.    The body reacts with an immune response and inflammation.   This reaction is a normal adaptive physiological mechanism our bodies do to respond to any environmental stress. You will notice I used two hard words, stress, and inflammation.

Just like when we start playing with cliché’ like it’s genetic.  We believe that all stress and inflammation is bad.  What you have to understand that there is no such thing as good or bad in this model, the body is simply responding and adapting, and evolving into a more superior species.   With that statement, the fact is, the body uses both to rebuild and grow.

This process builds bigger and better, an adaptive response.  Your muscles are faced with a new challenge in the form of heavy weights, so the body responds by building infrastructure to meet that challenge, our brains work the same way. The body grows and becomes more resilient.  Take the stress load away over time and it works in the other direction: use it or lose it.

In the example of the sedentary body builder, he or she loses muscle.  In the example of the sedentary human, he or she loses brain size and function. You heard that right.  Sedentary, and immobile people shrink their brain and damage their brain.

Eventually, I will attempt to tie all this into the profession of chiropractic.  Why I believe, chiropractic care is the only profession that can help build both, muscle and brain development because of one misunderstood fact, the importance of spinal motion and it’s simulation to the brain-body connection.  More on that later.

Movement, especially spinal movement places demand on the brain, just as it does on muscle, and so the brain releases a cascade of biochemicals.  One example of this is the release of Brain-Derived-Neurotrophic- Factor (BDNF). I know, another geeky term.  Hang in there, its easy.  Im gonna call it BDNF for short.

BDNF is a chemical that triggers the growth of cells to meet the increased mental demands of the movement.  Now The interesting thing, BDNF floods throughout the brain, not just the parts engaged in the movement.  In other words, the entire brain flourishes in response to movement.  Therefore, movement patterns and spinal movement send input into the brain that releases a cascade of neurobiological molecules like BDNF which flood the brain providing an optimal environment for brain cells to grow and function well.  That’s right, we have the science to show how movement, especially the tiny spinal movement floods the brain with essential chemicals called BDNF that grow new brain cells and improve the function of your brain.  You simple can never have a healthy brain without a healthy spine and regular physical activity.

Different movement patterns release other neurotransmitters as well.  A neurotransmitters does what the name implies; it is something that transmits the nerve signal.  Okay For example, chemicals like serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine are released at the result of exercise and even in response to proper specific chiropractic adjustments.

What we can take away so far in our story is that the body needs stronger or more refined movement to meet a given challenge, it will need more brain circuitry to guide that movement.

The movement to brain interaction circuitry is no longer conjecture or theoretical construct.  Another reason the chiropractic profession is playing a major role in healthcare in the concept of movement to brain interaction because of the forgotten importance of spinal joint motion and the huge role it plays in everything we are discussing.

It’s very simple.  We have become a sedentary society, coach potatoes- playing video games, texting on our phones and driving in our vehicles instead of behaving in ways our genome is programmed.   Our hunter- gatherer ancestors walked 8 – 10 miles each day, made quick sprints and lifted heavy from time to time.  Even our indigenous cultures that still hunt and gather food follow a similar pattern.

If you want to heal, you go to learn how to tap into your inner aborigine; a consistent theme I talk about in these shows.

Science has been busy assembling massive amounts of evidence that says the quickest, surest path to the health and well-being of the brain and body is movement and vigorous aerobic exercise.

A chiropractor is a movement doctor.  In fact, if there is anything you need to remember from this lesson it’s about the art of how to lighten up, move better, and live fuller.  The truth is, history leaves clues.  The chiropractic profession is evolving into movement doctors,  and  today  new  concepts  like  spinal hygiene to supplement for our sedentary lifestyles is happening all across America just as Denistry took first took off in the mid 19th century.

Today, nearly 98% of americans practice oral hygiene.  We bath, that’s body hygiene, we brush our teeth, that’s oral hygiene, and now- due to our sedentary lifestyle, we maintain our spinal health with chiropractic checkups, and stretch our back and necks often, that’s spinal hygiene.

Until next time, I’m Dr. Matt Hammett reminding you to lighten up, move better and live fuller.  See you next Dynamism Biohack.

Frustrating isn’t it?  What are we suppose to believe?
In this training I’m going to explain why 90% of normal brain function is stimulated through the movement of your spine and how we were designed to translate that motion every day.
OUR BRAIN IS PLASTIC NOT IN THE LITERAL SENSE of the word;  it’s  malleable,  shape-shifting,  and  moldable.    In  the  old world, science thought the brain was an organ that was hardwired and compartmentalized.  Today we know that the brain can rewire itself.   It can repurpose bits and pieces and adapt and grow.   The ability for the brain to rewire itself is called neuroplasticity.
You may heard of a similar term, neurogenesis.  But did you know that neurogenesis or the creation of new nerve cells happens through spinal motion?
And that leads us to Dynamism Biohack :  Rebuilding the brain Through Spinal Motion
You heard me correctly, your gonna want to tune in to this; SPINAL MOTION AND NEUROGENESIS or growing new nerve cells through the movement of your spine. Not a little bit.  Not kind of. But over 90% of it is generated through the movement of your spine.

Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.

Frustrating isn’t it?  What are we suppose to believe?

In our last show in this training of the move driver of the five pillars of a dynamic health I was talking about The Beginning of Movement, I explained that Humanities ability to speak, write, use gestures, and even use sign language are mediated through our contractions of muscle; through movement. Even our sensory modalities, memory, and cognitive processes either drive or suppress future movements.  If you hadn’t heard the last episode, go back and do that first.  otherwise this isn’t gonna make sense.  This is part II.  So sorry, I don’t usually do that.  So, I’m gonna continue debunking the myth in exercise physiology.  You know, the myth, that if you work out for an hour or two a day; that your golden.  Again, Let me ask you that question, would you eat one meal a day and skip the rest of the meals?  what would happen if you did?  You would be deficient in nutrients.  You would get sick.  Now do that for 20, 40, 60 years of your life.  And you have a recipe for chronic disease.  You can’t only do exercise for an hour and then sit or stand in a static immobile sedentary position all day; that is killing us.  Again, like everything else in science, we all disagree.  So I’m going to give you my perspective of human movement, not rat and animal based, but human movement and how it really relates to you.  Not the rat.  Not the animal.  You.  Their is a difference guys. But first, we have to discover the origin of human movement.  And that leads us to Dynamism Biohack, The beginning of movement Part II.

Dr. Wolpert is a British medical doctor, neuroscientist, and engineer, with outstanding contributions in computational biology. He would have this to say: “Now for those who do not believe this argument, we have trees and grass on our planet without the brain, but the clinching evidence is this animal here — the humble sea squirt.” The sea squirt is an immature, undeveloped, basic form of an animal. It has a nervous system and swims around in the ocean in its juvenile life.

The sea squirt has a fascinating story to tell. It begins its life as an egg and develops into a tadpole-like creature, complete with a spinal cord down to the tail. The sea squirt has a brain that helps it wiggle its tail to locomote through the water. The interesting thing is, its mobility does not last long.  Once it finds a suitable home, it attaches itself and never moves again.

After it implants itself to its home, slowly digesting its brain and nervous system for food. In other words, the lesson of the sea squirt teaches something marvelous to science, because once you do not need to move, you do not need a brain. There is an interesting relationship between movement and the brain. Dr. Wolpert considers himself a movement chauvinist. He states, “I believe (that) movement is the most important function of the brain– do not let anyone tell you that it is not true.”

What is the relationship between movement and the brain? Most neuroscientist would agree that this is a difficult problem. Dr. Wolpert uses an analogy to explain this complicated matter with the game of chess.

The question in chess is, how do we determine what piece to move and where? If you pit my nine-year-old son, when he is not drawing and working on children stories, against his computer chess game, the computer chess game will win every time. That problem is solved. But let us suggest a different skill that the more difficult aspect of chess, though, is picking up a chess piece, dexterously manipulating it and putting it back down on the board? If you put a nine-year-old child’s dexterity against the best robots of today, the answer is simple: the child wins easily.

There is no competition at all.  The simplest of motions for us like picking up a pencil is maddeningly complex, requiring coordination and computational power beyond electronic abilities.  In other words, for this, you need a brain.

In the area of robotics, why is the computational power so natural, and the dexterity so hard? One reason is that a very smart nine-year-old could learn what the algorithm is for that problem by looking at all possible moves to the end of the game; he can then choose the one that makes him win. It is a very simple algorithm that he learns, the more he plays the game.

Of course, there are many other moves, but the computers can only approximate toward the solution. In robotics, dexterity’s algorithm is rather unclear; you have to solve to be dexterous. Human beings have to both perceive and act in the world with movement, which has a lot of problems when you try to make a computer do it. This is why in robotics, it does not move and perform with anything like the agility of a human.

In other words, there is no generalization to implement an algorithm from one task to another in robotics, because dynamic movement is required for dexterity. Let us compare this to cutting-edge human performance. Recall that Dr. Wolpert says “we have a brain for one reason only: to produce adaptable and complex movements. There is no other plausible explanation.” He is saying that our brains are built on and inextricably tied to the movement of our bodies. The movement creates our brain because movement requires a brain.

When my nine year old son desires to strategically move his knight, his brain must execute complex commands in order for dexterity to function.  The different neurological senses for touch, pressure, temperature, etc. harmonize through different areas of brain centers simultaneously to a working order.

First, he must pick up the knight without knocking it over on the chess board.  He needs to determine how much pressure he needs to use to get the right amount of grip to pick up the piece without dropping or crushing it. Then, he needs to determine the careful movements as he navigates the knight to the next square without knocking down other pieces.  Finally, he must determine how gentle or hard he needs to be as he places the knight into the new square.  In order to control all of these specialized movement functions, his brain needs to send a command down the spinal cord to cause muscles to contract after his brain senses the need to pick up the chess piece. Again, the process is complicated.

I will revisit this process later, but for now, just understand that the human body contains sensory organs that detect movement. When these sensory organs are turned on, they send input to the brain.  The brain then responds and produces an output through the spinal cord to every tissue, cell, and organ in the body. When the output reaches your arm, your arm muscles contract and move. Just like the sensory organs in the body that detect movement, we have them for vision, skin and other specialized functions as well. When the signals are not very clear, it is kind of like watching TV, and a rain cloud gets in the way of the satellite, so you miss the game’s touchdown. boy, I hate that!

What makes controlling movement so involved, is the quality of the sensory feedback. When that rain cloud messes with the TV reception, we call that picture “extremely noisy.” The waves on the TV make the picture “noisy,” and I do not mean sound. Science uses this term in the engineering and the neuroscience sense, meaning a random noise is corrupting a signal or a distortion.

Therefore, in this case, something in the body is corrupting that signal. Allow me to illustrate another example. Try taking your right hand and place it on a table, while you put the left hand under the table, trying to localize or connect your hands together without the ability to see through the table top. More than likely, you would be off by several centimeters. Similar to looking at a pencil stuck in a glass of water, it looks bent due to the noise in sensory feedback; this would be referred to as refraction in the pencil’s case. Another interesting example is aiming at a basketball hoop or a dart board.

Trying to hit the bull’s eye over and over requires the use of sensory feedback. The movement output each time you try to point toward the basket is extremely “noisy.” The variability with each shot attempted is an example of something they call movement variability. In fact, this type of movement is both variable and ambiguous. Variable and ambiguous movement means the glass could be full or empty; it changes over time.  Therefore our bodies’ signals perform like an orchestra, working on a whole sensory movement task with many different instruments out of tune, causing an imperfection of the music, an array of defects or noise.

See science can be so easy guys.  We just need to take the Latin out of it, it’s a dead language.  Your getting this….

So back to our story, The brain also goes through a lot of effort to reduce the negative consequences of this sort of noise and variability. To do that, Dr. Wolpert uses a framework which is very popular in statistics and machine learning of the last fifty years, I know, don’t get lost here, its a big word, its called Bayesian decision theory.

Bayesian statistics is a framework for making technical conclusions about the underlying state of the world, based on observations and prior beliefs. The approach tries to infer causes from their observed effects and then assigns probabilities to each of them. So, it is a unifying way to think about how the brain deals with uncertainty. The fundamental idea is that you want to make evidence based conclusions and then take actions.

Starting with  a conclusion reached by evidence and reasoning, you want to generate beliefs about the world. One example could be the belief of a kind of animal one is looking at. Keep in mind that using our model, we are going to represent beliefs with probabilities. We could represent a belief with a number system wherein probability exists as a percentage between between zero and one — zero meaning I do not believe it at all; one means I am certain. And The figures in between give you the gray levels of uncertainty. Okay, hang in guys, let me get through this geeky stuff, there is a reason and a method of this madness in taking through Bayesian theory, I promise.

The key to Bayesian reasoning is that you have two sources of information from which to make your conclusion. You have data, and data in neuroscience is sensory input. Therefore, we have sensory input, which we can take in to generate beliefs. Of course, there is another source of information- prior knowledge. You accumulate knowledge throughout your life in memories. Bayesian decision theory gives scientists the mathematics of the optimal way to combine your prior knowledge with your sensory evidence, so as to generate new beliefs.

Neuroscience has a formula for this. It has real explanatory power, measuring the probability of different beliefs given your sensory input. Dr. Wolpert illustrates an intuitive example. “Imagine you are learning to play tennis, and you want to decide where the ball is going to bounce as it comes over the net towards you.”2 There are two sources of information Bayes’ rule tells you. There is sensory evidence- visual information and auditory information; that might show you a general area where it is going to land. We could mark that spot red. But, you know that your senses are not perfect, and therefore there is some variability of where it is going to land, represented by making that red spot into more of a fuzzy cloud. If we were to plot this variability on a graph, we would represent it with numbers between 0.1 and maybe 0.5.

When we learn new movement skills, the task is similar to Bayesian rule. Therefore, neuroscientists tell us that brains are similar to Bayesian reasoning machines. As we learn about things, we learn about statistics of the world; our brains process it, but we also learn about how noisy our sensory apparatus is, and so our brain combines those in a real Bayesian way. The brain does make predictions of the sensory feedback it is going to get, changing the perception by what you do.

In order to explain how it does that, we need to explore about how the brain deals with sensory input. When our brain sends a command out to the body, we get sensory feedback back to the brain; that transformation is governed by the physics of your body and your sensory apparatus. This, of course is very interesting to chiropractic.

So, Looking at the brain, sensory input is like shaking a ketchup bottle. If I were to shake a ketchup bottle, I get some true sensory feedback and time indicator. If I have a good predictor model, it would predict the same thing with every new bottle.

This is actually Dr. Wolpert’s example. He explains it this way, “Imagine, as I shake the ketchup bottle, someone very kindly comes up to me and taps the bottom of the bottle for me. Now I get an extra source of sensory information due to that external act… I get two sources; you tapping on it, and I get me shaking it, but from my senses’ point of view, that is combined into one source of information”.  These models serve as perfect examples to how movement, especially our tiny movement of the spine generates, like a windmill, the sensory information to the brain.

This is why ‘tiny spinal movement’ between adjacent spinal joints firing sensory input into the brain ‘generates’ 90% of brain function.  You get some sensory input through walking, running, stretching, and exercise, but without ‘healthy’ tiny spinal movement between adjacent segmental joints, you cannot generate 100% of your brain function!

Keep in mind, Dr. Roger Sperry Nobel Prize recipient says that the spine is the motor that drives the brain. According to his research “90% of the stimulation and nutrition to the brain is generated by the movement of the spine.”  Only 10% of our brain’s energy goes into thinking, metabolism, immunity, and healing. Sperry demonstrated that 90% of brain energy goes into processing and maintaining the body’s relationship with gravity between adjacent spinal joints generating sensory input into the brain and body.  Again this means, that brain research demonstrates the importance of movement of the spine in relation to brain function and has been equated by a Nobel Prize winning scientist to that of a windmill that generates electricity for a power plant.

You can hold a ketchup bottle and hope for gravity alone will do the trick, or you can combine hitting the bottom of the bottle while you shake the bottle and generate 100% of the flow.

Just like Dr. Wolpert’s example, you can’t detect the difference between simply shaking the bottle or hitting the bottle at the same time.  In other words, you can’t ‘feel’ or ‘sense’ which tiny spinal joints in your body aren’t working and moving properly, because you can’t ‘feel’ vertebral subluxation until you suffer from spinal decay or degeneration- and again- you may or may not have any symptom.   This is why we now require a Doctor of Chiropractic to regularly assess the healthy movement and function of our spine.

In most cases within the field of chiropractic, their are three phases of spinal care.  They have different names, for our purposes I will call them rehab, corrective and wellness care.  The rehab phase of spinal care normally takes between two to three months depending on a number of factors.  It requires repetitive chiropractic adjustments to the spine in order to restore normal function between adjacent spinal joints.  The chiropractic adjustments at specific segmental levels of your spine restore proprioceptive input to your brain,  breakup scar tissue adhesion’s between adjacent joints, and reduce chronic inflammation and negative stress signals to the brain. Thus restoring brain circuitry through normal movement functions.

Eventually, your spinal movement gets restored, at least to your best version of you, and you graduate into more focused corrective care.  Corrective care requires less visit frequency than the rehab phase, it is focused on correcting bad posture, improving spinal alignment and restoring the function of your spinal movement optimizing central nervous system activity.  Finally, the last phase of spinal care is wellness care.  Wellness care varies, again by many factors, but it usually consists of regular ongoing chiropractic care every 2 – 4 weeks for life in order to optimize brain to body health.  Unlike sickness/crisis disease management, the promotion of health is on a continuum.  This is comparable to why we need Dentistry and oral hygiene in our sugar- laced, nutrient deficient world today; we also need Chiropractic and spinal hygiene in our sedentary, immobile world today.  Lifetime Dentistry and Chiropractic care are essential, just as eating, moving, thinking healthy are essential if you want to live well for a lifetime.

Now, I’m going to cover more of this stuff in future shows, I’m going to talk about the Lateral Line System present in over 30,000 species in the underwater world, the oceans, lakes and rivers and how those sensory organs tie in movement of the fish swimming, and the movement of the water current; how that hits the Lateral line system and generates nerve impulse to the brain and CNS.  I’m going to explain, that how that is true for the underwater world, it’s also true for the terrain world, but most especially for human beings.  It turns out, humans genetically require around 8 – 10 miles of walking which generates spinal movement, or the windmills of our spine that generates nerve impulse, input to our brain, output to every tissue, cell and organ in the body.

Were gonna get into it soon, but for now, just know that The neural simulator linkage between brain and movement is carried by evidence from the sea squirt to human beings. There is a clear association; the more a species needs to move, the bigger its brain must be.  This relationship is particularly pronounced in mammals.

It also goes in reverse, such that if the koala bears wanted to retain the larger brain that evolution gave them, they also needed to move.  The koala bear has a super small brain in its huge head, because it lives in 1 tree, sleeps 20 hours a day and hardly moves at all.   In contrast to humans, the human brain has shrunk when compared to our hunter-gatherer ancestors. Koala bears and humans need to move if we want to expand our brains and species.

Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.

Frustrating isn’t it?  What are we suppose to believe?

In this training of the move driver of the five pillars of a dynamic health.  Im going to debunk the myth in exercise physiology.  You know, the myth, that if you work out for an hour or two a day; that your golden.  Let me ask you something, would you eat one meal a day and skip the rest of the meals?  what would happen if you did?  You would be deficient in nutrients.  You would get sick.  Now do that for 20, 40, 60 years of your life.

See where I am going.  You can’t only do exercise for an hour and then sit or stand in a static immobile sedentary position all day; that is killing us.  Again, like everything else in science, we all disagree.  So Im going to give you my perspective of human movement, not rat and animal based, but human movement and how it really relates to you.  Not the rat.  Not the animal.  You.  Their is a difference guys. But first, we have to discover the origin of human movement.  And that leads us to Dynamism Biohack, The beginning of movement.

Anthropologists rely on a variety of fossil, archaeological, genetic, and linguistic clues to reconstruct how people populated the world.

Sir Arthur Keith was a Scottish anatomist and anthropologist. He was a leading figure in the study of human fossils, and later became President of the Royal Anthropological Institute. Keith was put in charge of the treasury of artifacts that were kept safe in the Museum of the Royal College of Surgeons. It was exposure to these fossils that enabled a shift in his interest from anatomy to the machinery of human evolution, and the world will be ever grateful.

While Sir Keith was one of the first anthropologists to discover the earliest Homo sapiens to our more modern scientific techniques, we have advanced our understanding of human movement patterns by looking at fossils of skulls, artifacts, DNA, culture, and language. How did our ancestors’ physique look? How often did they move? How much energy did they spend? The answer to this became apparent with the differences after the agricultural revolution. Science demonstrated that a small tribe in the Middle East about 10,000 years BC discarded their hunter-gatherer lifestyle and began domesticating animals and cultivating plants in a manner similar to farming.

The Middle Eastern tribe became revolutionaries as science labeled them the first peoples to plant the first seeds of agriculture.  In so doing, they began following a lifestyle different than all prior humans.  What started as a rebel way of life in the Middle East was ultimately adopted around the globe and eventually drove the hunter-gatherer lifestyle into extinction. Save for a few isolated tribes in Amazon rain forests and on the An-Daman Islands in the Bay of Ben-gal, un-modernized hunter-gatherer societies barely exist. Ironically, as the last of the hunter-gatherer’s cultures became endangered, modern science is coming to understand the importance of this lifestyle to the health of all humans.

Researchers determined what it must have been like to survive in the wild. It would require massive energy expenditure on a daily basis for requisite activities such as hunting game and foraging for water, social interaction, dealing with predatorial stress and gathering food.

To survive in the wild back then would have been very stressful. Again, how accurate these dates are matters not.    Were not concerned here how long human civilization has lived.  What we need to take home from this data is that this way of life represents the pattern of physical activity regimen for which our genome remains adapted. Accordingly, humans are highly capable of performing the great diversity of physical activity required for a hunting and gathering food in the wild.  Again, the reason we need to tap into our Inner Aboriginee and live like a wild human in a civilized world.

The profound and progressively wider discordance between current day physical activity and the indigenous Homo sapiens activity results in atrophy, disability, and disease. Accordingly, the original model of hunter-gatherer’s daily physical regimen could serve as an ideal genetic template for the ideal exercise and nutrition program for humans today.

So, let me continue our discussion while I make my case that following data derived from humans is always better than the most expensive science extrapolated from rats.  After all, rat science is evidence-based science, it is neither the most accurate evidence, nor is it based on real evidence for humans. Again, that is the purpose for this program and the bulk of the reason experts have conflicting opinions and use rat and animal science to defend their theories; keep in mind, it ain’t even human; hardly any of it at least.

At any rate, I went to get back to what we know from human studies, the origin.  Science, went from digging ancient human fossils and analysis of skull size to predict the size of the human brain to DNA analysis to provide clues to the modern Homo sapien.

We have concluded that a more accurate description of how humans were designed to move is better achieved with human data as opposed to the science of rats and attempting to extrapolate that data to humans. In other words, you and I are much smarter about listening to television and experts recommending nutrition and physical exercise based on rat science. It is far from accurate, and the reason why so many doctors and scientists disagree.

It is much better to recommend nutrition and exercise patterns for humans, based on human data. So far, I have presented some evidence to back up this point, but how do we know about how movement shaped the human brain?  What is the relationship between movement and the human brain?

In modern neuroscience, we find an answer to that question. Dealing with the difficult issues about the brain is no trivial task. At some point in your life, most of us have asked this question. Why do humans and other species have a brain? Did you know that not all species on planet Earth have brains? Dr. Dan Wolpert recently spoke at Ted and gave an answer to this question. He talked about our unique ability to perceive the world, and our capacity to think.

Most people believe perception and thought are the reason we have a brain. Dr. Wolpert strongly disagrees; he says it is  obvious why humans possess a brain, “We have a brain for one reason and one reason only; that is to produce adaptable and complex movements. There is no other reason to have a brain.”

If we contemplate this for a moment, we realize that movement is everywhere and essential for life. The impulse of life goes through movement and contractions of muscles.

Humans’ ability to speak, write, use gestures, and even use sign language are mediated through our contractions of muscle; through movement. Even our sensory modalities, memory, and cognitive processes either drive or suppress future movements.

There is no evolutionary or adaptive advantage in laying down old memories of childhood or perceiving the color of a butterfly if it does not affect the way you are going to move later in life.

If you are skeptical of this argument, Dr. Wolpert is a British medical doctor, neuroscientist, and engineer, with outstanding contributions in computational biology.

In our next Dynamism Biohack, I’m going to explain why Dr. Wolpert He would have this to say: “Now for those who do not believe this argument, we have trees and grass on our planet without the brain, but the clinching evidence is this animal here — the humble sea squirt.” The sea squirt is an immature, undeveloped, basic form of an animal. It has a nervous system and swims around in the ocean in its juvenile life.

The sea squirt has a fascinating story to tell. It begins its life as an egg and develops into a tadpole-like creature, complete with a spinal cord down to the tail. The sea squirt has a brain that helps it wiggle its tail to locomote through the water. The interesting thing is, its mobility does not last long.  Once it finds a suitable home, it attaches itself and never moves again. After it implants itself to its home, slowly digesting its brain and nervous system for food. In other words, the lesson of the sea squirt teaches something marvelous to science, because once you do not need to move, you do not need a brain. In the next show, were gonna dive deep into the ocean and examine Dr. Wolperts explanation of the Sea Squirt.
Until next time, ….

Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.

Frustrating isn’t it?  What are we suppose to believe?

In this training, I’m going to sort out the truth about whole grains.  I am going to take a perspective from  biology, neuroscience, and allergy-based science to explain why grains are toxic to humans.
And that leads us to Dynamism biohack: Hard Truth About Cereal Grains

The Hard Truth About Cereal Grains
Once again, the focus of this training is about health-promotion, not sickness-crisis based care. However, a detriment to true health-promotion comes from misunderstanding proper nutrition versus bad diet.  So it is necessary to take a moment and talk about grains from various perspectives in both the health-promotion and sickness-crisis based paradigms.
Dynamic people understand changing perspective from different scientists; researchers and authors often bring to light difficult scientific matters. After reading numerous books and papers about grains, I am taking perspective from biology, neuroscience, and allergy-based science to explain why grains are toxic to humans.
From an evolutionary biologist’s perspective, grains are the seeds of grasses. The top four cereal grains come from wheat, corn, rice, and barley. They account for nearly 70% of global agricultural crops by weight. Along with sorghum, oats, rye and millet, these grains account for 56% of all calories eaten by humans. Grains are poisonous to us because they are the seeds of grasses; in turn, they contain toxic proteins. In evolution, these toxic proteins are intended to make it difficult for a grazing animal to digest the seed.
The goal of the seed is to exit the animal’s digestive tract still intact, dispersed and covered in the manure for the seed to plant and fertilize itself for plant growth.
So by creation, seeds are not meant for digestion. After a scientific analysis of seeds, we know why these toxic proteins are more heavily concentrated along the outer shell- something we call bran. They are also found throughout the entire kernel.
The term “whole grains” means seeds containing the heavily toxic bran; they are often mistakenly viewed as entirely healthy. Why? The short answer is simple. Linear reduction methods using rats usually show some nutritious advantage for some particular mechanism in the lab. The problem is two-fold. Obviously, we are not rats; nature does not live within the convenient walls of a laboratory experiment, and because of this we have no way to measure the dynamic or quantum result of the analysis.

So let me explain it throughout a NEUROSCIENCE PERSPECTIVE ON GRAINS.
Another reason is that these methodologies do not explain the relationship between grains and other ingredients and brain health in the broader outlook of our human DNA.
To examine this relationship we need to shift to a neuroscience perspective. No one has explained the relationship of the more general outlook of our human DNA than neuroscientist and nutrition expert Dr. David Perlmutter.
He explains it best, here: “Our genes determine not just how we process food but, more important, how we respond to the foods we eat. There is little doubt that one of the largest and most wide-reaching events in the ultimate decline of brain health in modern society has been the introduction of wheat grain into the human diet.”
It’s true that our ancestors consumed minimal amounts of grain; however, what we now call grains bears little resemblance (due to gene-hybridization, pesticides, and other pollutants) to the wild variety that our ancestors consumed on rare occasions.
Its interesting to read about how scientific methodology has changed our food, read Michael Pollan’s book, The Omnivore Dilemma.  For those who are not familiar with Pollan’s book, for the moment just understand that rat studies rarely take gene-hybridization, pesticides, and other pollutants into consideration during their experiments making many experts feel that safety measures have not been properly placed.
Once again, I feel it important to note that I am thankful for scientists and the experiments they do; we would be nowhere without them. Yes, I understand the importance of rat science and other animal studies. I honor the scientists who conduct them; if anything, we need more of them. I am merely pointing out some of the reasons we cannot use the same rules we have created for the sickness-crisis model when conducting science for the health-promotion and restoration model I am teaching in this training.
It is a matter of apples and oranges; both are fruit that is good to consume, but sometimes it can get confusing.

Dr. Perlmutter has this to say about the confusing matter: “We are increasingly challenging our physiology with ingredients for which we are not genetically prepared.” The book Wheat Belly gives a thorough description how the incessant genetic tinkering has led to a very different type of wheat.
Again, as I already covered in other Dynamism Biohacks, The science of nutrition is not the space-age high-tech we are led to believe. The truth is, nutritional science as Michael Pollan puts it, “only got started less than two hundred years ago, is today approximately where surgery was in the year 1650- very promising and fascinating to watch, but are you ready to let them operate on you? I think I’ll wait awhile.”
I think that summarizes why we need to avoid rat-based nutrition based science and mimic what our ancestors have been doing for centuries. When 80% of heart disease and more than 33% of cancers have been linked to diet, we need a paradigm shift.
So There are two facts about nutrition that are indisputable no one intelligent is going to disagree with:

1.    A typical Western diet consists of lots of processed foods and grain-fed meat, lots of added fat and sugar, more refined grains, lots of Latin-based words defining specific chemicals never found in nature except vegetables and fruits suffer from the typical diseases such as obesity, type-II diabetes, heart disease and cancer.
2.    People who don’t eat that stuff don’t suffer from chronic diseases which I call The Chronic Illness Plague that is killing 80% of the industrialized civilization.

Here is what we found. The traditional diets of various non-Westernized cultures vary widely. The Inuit tribes of Greenland eat super high-fat diets from mostly seal blubber.  The Central American Indians eat a high carbohydrate diet comprised mostly of maize and beans. The Masai people in Africa eat a super high protein diet of mostly cattle meat, blood, and milk.  However, even those extreme varieties do not eat Westernized foods and do not suffer from chronic diseases. Time Magazine named the food journalist Michael Pollan as one of the one hundred most influential people in the world.  To summarize his writings, “There is no single ideal human diet … the human omnivore has evolved to handle a variety of different diets except one, the Western diet that most of us now eat.”
The important point to take home thus far is that almost any change in diet that results in eating less industrial foods will dramatically improve one’s health.  It does not matter if it is veganism, or a fad diet such as Atkins, even people who only stop consuming soda they will all get healthier. The reason so many diet programs on the market work are because they tell you to avoid industrial foods, such as white flour, refined sugar, and vegetable oils.

I’m Dr. Matt Hammett inviting you to lighten up, move better and live fuller.  See ya next Dynamism biohack!

FOODS THAT HARM

Our DNA contains the hunter-gatherer blueprint; genetically speaking we’re all hunter-gatherers. Not only are we hunter-gatherers, but we also carry the genes of primate animals, farmers and herders, explorers and factory workers, office employees and computer specialists. At our core, our biological substance is still mostly that of hunters and gatherers.

In this training, I define the genetic mismatch between our current modern man-made foods and lifestyle as a stressor that is poisonous to our DNA. Let me give you an analogy, when you are hiking in the wild and become hungry, eating a handful of unknown berries or mushrooms can kill you. In the wild, you will find nothing to eat or drink that will dramatically or permanently improve your health. Therefore, there is no potion, lotion, pharmaceutical product or a nutraceutical product that can replace the dynamic interactions of nature the way we have been led to believe by our popular culture.

This Caged person mindset was born from high-powered advertising manipulating our minds to believe such nonsense. A Dynamic person can get over this heap and understand that poisons are real, and the manufactured Fountain of Youth is NOT. We can apply the same principle in the wild to our visit in the grocery store. What not to eat is more important than what to eat.

THE CONSEQUENCE

We cannot live without the consequence; poisons are hidden everywhere in the stores. In fact, the single most important way to dramatically improve your health is by removing toxins from your diet by subtracting unhealthy foods. Of course, eating broccoli does not cancel out devouring three slices of pizza, but eating broccoli added to a salad with grass-fed meat would be the better choice. To be blunt, if you are smoking cigarettes, don’t start by adding broccoli; quit smoking. That’s a clear poison.

Therefore, to optimize our health and engage in the Eat driver of a Dynamic person is to remove the toxins. At this point, we need to get clear on what those are. To be brief, they are industrial foods like sugar, vegetable oils and seed-based crops made out of cereal grains. A lot of experts is calling these slow-acting poisons when consumed in large quantities.

Sugars are unambiguously toxic; our ancestors never had the kind of sugar or grain we now eat. Ever. Even in the 18th century, the average American had only five pounds of it. At the present time, the average American consumes 152 pounds of sugar every year. Adding vegetable oils and cereal grains into your slowly-poisoning-yourself pocket violates millions of years of evolution. We went from minimal consumption of seed-based cereal grains, like wheat, to 133 pounds of it per year.

Wheat and modern grains are silently destroying the human brain. When I tell my patients to avoid eating grains, I am often met with skepticism within my clinical practice. You heard me correctly; experts are now telling us that grains, so long embraced as being healthful by nutrition experts, should be avoided. These include whole wheat, multigrain, seven-grain, live grain, stone-ground, and so on. In his book Grain Brain, Dr. David Perlmutter argues that “our most beloved dietary staple (grains is) a terrorist group that bullies our most precious organ, the brain.”

Therefore, it is time we go outside the box of accepted dogma and venture away from invested corporate interests. Perlmutter offers a game-changing approach toward brain health by removing grains from your diet. His expertise as both a neuroscientist and in nutrition makes him the world’s foremost expert concerning brain health. He makes his findings very clear, “There is little doubt that one of the largest and most wide-reaching events in the ultimate decline of brain health in modern society has been the introduction of wheat grain in the human diet.”31

Some argue that our Neolithic ancestors consumed minimal amounts of this grain. However, “what we now call wheat bears little resemblance to the wild einkorn variety that our forebears consumed on rare occasions.”

The truth is the 133 pounds of wheat that the average American consumes each year along with our modern hybridization and gene-modifying technology shares almost no genetic, structural, or chemical likeness to what hunter-gatherers might have stumbled upon. This genetic incongruent lifestyle causes stressors to our DNA challenging our physiology with artificial chemicals not found in nature and unidentifiable by our genome.

Perlmutter and other health experts are calling gluten, a protein in wheat, a silent killer because of its damaging effects on our health. In fact, gluten makes up the majority of wheat protein. Proponents of wheat point out that gluten is associated with the small percentage of people with celiac disease. In fact, they point out that only .4% – .8% of people in the United States have celiac disease. What they fail to either realize or mention is that gluten causes gut inflammation in over 80% of people and inflammation in your gut is inflammation to your second brain.31

Researchers have known for some time that the cornerstone for all degenerative conditions is inflammation. They are finding that gluten is one of the most prominent stimulators for inflammatory pathways that reach the brain. The most frightening aspect is that we don’t know when these routes have reached the brain because symptoms don’t necessarily arise from these reactions. Full-blown digestive disorders, such as bloating, diarrhea, and gas, are easy to spot since constipation and pain emerge relatively quickly. The same thing goes for various food-related allergies and their reactions. However, the human brain is a more elusive organ as we have no way of knowing when the inflammatory pathways have reached the brain-assaulting it at a molecular level without feeling it.

If you are someone who is a vegan or vegetarian or omnivore and your health couldn’t possibly be improved, then keep on kicking butt. I only caution that in my experience as a clinician and dealing with nutrition, I have found the vast majority of die-hard grain eaters who claim to be vegetarian become deficient in essential nutrients and toxic in others. After all, a toasted cheese sandwich, French fries, all grain crackers and soda is considered a vegetarian meal. If you can admit, your diet can improve, and your knowledge could use some awesomeness and supercharging, keep open to these ideas and strategies. At the very least, don’t skip through this chapter about the Eat driver because you feel you know it all and can’t possibly learn something new.

What you need to take so far in our story from the Eat driver is that the idea of removing poison first applies to every aspect of The Five Pillars of a Dynamic Health and our life. The scary fact is that most of us who have invested interest in nutrition think a certain way to eat is healthy just because it demonstrated that way on a rat experiment!

In fact, newer sciences on humanity prove that while it was healthy for rats, it may, in fact, be poisonous for humans. We have to set the record straight. Recall the confusion in science is real. Over 86% of our science are experimentation on rats, and the other 14% is other animals. It was only a few years ago, with new DNA technologies, epigenetics, and evolutionary biology, that we can finally base science on humanity; after all, we also have powers and lobbyists who have a particular interest in their profit.

Here is what we can agree on up to this point. If you have a habit that’s destroying your life, GET RID OF IT. Period. To optimize your health-promotion plan start by systematically eliminating that which is killing you.

At our core, our biological substance is still mostly that of hunters and gatherers.
In this training, I define the genetic mismatch between our current modern man-made foods and lifestyle as a stressor that is poisonous to our DNA. Let me give you an analogy, when you are hiking in the wild and become hungry, eating a handful of unknown berries or mushrooms can kill you. In the wild, you will find nothing to eat or drink that will dramatically or permanently improve your health. Therefore, there is no potion, lotion, pharmaceutical product or a nutraceutical product that can replace the dynamic interactions of nature the way we have been led to believe by our popular culture.
This Caged person mindset was born from high-powered advertising manipulating our minds to believe such nonsense. A Dynamic person can get over this heap and understand that poisons are real, and the manufactured Fountain of Youth is NOT. We can apply the same principle in the wild to our visit in the grocery store. What not to eat is more important than what to eat.

Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.

Frustrating isn’t it?  What are we suppose to believe?

In this training I’m going to talk about what i call THE great AMERICAN TRAGEDY which In the last 50 years, we as Americans have faithfully followed the advice from leading medical associations, nutritional professionals, and our government, to eat less fat; according to them, fat makes us fat and causes heart disease. We as a nation are fatter and sicker than ever.

And that leads us to Dynamism Biohack : The great American tragedy.

On a personal note, my mother followed this advice faithfully for years; she ended up obese, and dead from a heart attack. If I never found my mom half on the edge of that bed and half off the bed trying to call for help at that hotel, dead from a heart attack after we buried my father (who died from preventable cancer), and then a month later witness my grandmother dying after a medical mistake, I do not believe I would have ever embarked on the health-promotion journey I am on today; nor would I have become the physician I am today.
This very training I created for you was born on the spark that I felt when I vowed to help Americans not suffer the tragedies that I have faced in my family. For me, this message is very personal. I learned from my stressed out dad to lighten up in life, from my sedentary mother to move better, and from my grandmother who suffered a medical mistake to live fully.
This is not about furthering my career. This is all about discovering, proving, and teaching the solution to avoid these crises for others. I cannot raise the dead, but I certainly can help more people lighten up, move better, and live fuller.
and Each time I get to help transform people’s lives toward these solutions and the advancement of their health, I am liberated from my suffering as it honors the memory of my fallen parents and family, as it honors the memory of your fallen parents and family toward the advancement of humanity.
Someone recently said to me, “Don’t reinvent the wheel.”  The problem with that statement is that if Henry Ford asked the people of his time what they wanted, the people would have said faster horsepower when Mr. Ford was thinking about the automobile. The last I know, Henry Ford did not suffer martyrdom for his discoveries; nor do I feel the health-promotion paradigm shift in American culture will suffer martyrdom from corporate powers.
In contrast to the automobile, which at the time caused the advancement of new products and services toward the improvement of humanity, the health-promotion solution I am teaching will have the same effect on the progress of humanity today. At the very least, I may never get any attention for being a part of it, besides you who are listening to this training.
By the way, if you like this training, click the like button and share it with your friends so they can benefit from this.
You see, my goal is to create hundreds of these  little trainings for you, even if only 1 person listens.  I don’t care, if that 1 persons life is saved because of what they learned from me, that’s all that matters. For me, life and health are both journeys that require hard work, a fruit that is grown and earned.
As long as you advance your life and health from these strategies and tools, that is enough for me. I would imagine that Henry Ford did not invent the automobile. It was probably a group of dedicated visionaries whom he hired who did, whom never got the credit or reaped the financial awards that Ford received. At this point, does it even matter, when the conventional wisdom at the time does not stack up and after we have suffered enough loss? It is time for a game changer. It is time for dynamism.
A new vision is needed and from a different type of doctor; one that values and restores Mother Nature on the attainment for health-promotion and true wellness.  and that true wellness and health promotion does not come from studying pathology and disease, but healthology, a term not yet in the dictionary, or the study of health.  we need to study healthy people, not sick people.

So here are some EXPANDING NUTRITION RESEARCH PROBLEMS your doctor probally knows nothing about.
The emerging research is showing us just how bad our rat science is in the field of nutrition really is. For example, as I discussed in Biohack: metabolic switches, i explained that most experts may label a calorie as just a calorie.

Again, The problem lies in the fact that when you eat a calorie, it is not a calorie- this is imperative knowledge, so allow me to elaborate thereupon.
It is time to be liberated once and for all, like the people from Henry Ford’s time when he introduced the first automobile. Like Ford, I am not recommending some improvement to our current thinking about sickness and disease with some weird philosophy or belief. I am using the research from various academics as well as hundreds of books that validate this is a valid science and will become the future of humanity toward health promotion. It will also spark a new brand of science as “wellness scientist” with a different set of scientific rules, and guidelines that will be known globally. Luckily for me, I have the rest of these training sessions with to you to teach you that dominant, game-changing strategy.

In a scientific lab that creates a vacuum, calories from all foods release the same amount of energy when burned- whether the food is a raisin or a piece of meat. But when you eat, foods have to process through a series of biomolecular processes through the human body which will never be identified in a rat. This has profoundly different effects on your hormones, brain chemistry, and metabolism than a rat.  Not to mention, the particular genome you are studying matters much. The genome you contain, what species you are is vastly different how food affects hormones, brain chemistry, and metabolism.

If you are human, eat more fat.

Fat calories burn differently than sugar calories do. Fat calories speed up your metabolism. Fats have to be burned and are not easily stored because they do not spike insulin—the fat storage hormone. Fat works on the brain to cut your appetite, so you eat less food overall during the day.
On the other hand, sugar and carb calories do exactly the opposite: they spike insulin, promote fat storage, and lay down the dangerous belly and organ fat. They slow your metabolism and increase hunger and cravings. Mounds of scientific research support this perspective.

In other words, it is not how much you eat but what you eat that controls the metabolic switches. Yes, 80 calories of raisins versus 80 calories of meat will release the same amount of energy when burned in a vacuum, but your body is not a vacuum. Think about this rationally.  When applied to human biology, if you eat the same amount of calories in kale or chocolate, do they do the same thing to your body? Of course not. The wrong idea that a calorie is a calorie to reach your optimal weight was what killed my mother.
The more accurate hypothesis is something called the “metabolic hypothesis,” which accounts for the fact that different types of foods affect your body and your DNA in various ways. A specific example comes from the fact that we know fat calories burn differently than sugar calories. In contrast, fat calories speed up our metabolism, whereas calories from sugar trigger insulin, because they are fast-acting carbohydrates which promote fat storage, hunger and food cravings.
So, different types of foods epigenetically turn on various metabolic switches in humans vastly different in other species. again, it is not how much you eat, but what you eat as a member of that species.
Harvard trained Dr. David Ludwig did much of the underlying research to prove this wisdom. He showed that certain foods that contained similar nutrients affect hormones and metabolism in profoundly different ways. This determines how we store or burn calories, build fat or muscle, feel hungry or satisfied. It is the variable that keeps you struggling with weight or maintains a healthy weight effortlessly, to suffering from or avoiding chronic inflammation.
Recall that a fascinating piece of research Ludwig found had to do with how fast-acting carbohydrates light up our reward centers in the brain the same way that addictive substances like cocaine and alcohol do. The practical wisdom so far in our story of the Eat pillar of a Dynamic Health comes from all this research, and it is very simple. Dynamic people need to reduce and eliminate their consumption of fast-acting processed carbohydrates and increase our consumption of good fats.  Eat fat and get thin. so simple isn’t it.  I’m Dr. Matt Hammett inviting you to lighten up, move better and live fuller.  See ya next Dynamism biohack!

Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.

Frustrating isn’t it?  What are we suppose to believe?

In this training I’m going to explain why you need to turn on your garbage disposal and get rid of that great white shark.
Turn on the garbage disposal, and fill it with sugar and flour. Seriously, The sugar and flour we have today is not produced the way our ancestors had it.  It’s Garbage.  Not only is sugar and flour a killer by its very nature, Industrialization has made it into a “Great White Shark” because…. it’s artificially produced.   Our bodies simply did not evolve to handle these artificially fake food-like substances. Your not gonna want to miss todays training as we expand on detoxifying our body naturally.

And that leads us to Dynamism Biohack : Turn on your garbage disposal.

Your body does not know what to do with pure sugar.  How much sugar do you think we consumed in the year 1700? Think about this for a moment.

Most people would have no idea, but it comes out to roughly five pounds annually. To date, the average person now consumes 150 pounds of sugar, annually. That means we consumed one hundred fifty pounds of a substance which we ate only five pounds per year in 1700.  For thousands of years sugar was nonexistent in a pure distilled refined form.

Our ancestors never distilled sugar into the finest granular substance that we see today.  Again, our bodies do not know how to respond.  One hundred fifty pounds of sugar per year. That shift is the most significant shift in human nutrition since the invention of fire…  Think about that for a moment, the invention of fire.

Nothing else was as significant as the introduction of that level of sugar into our diet. The consequence is simple: the increases levels of obesity, heart disease, fatty livers, diabetes, and depression that we see in our modern world.  Sugar is the root cause of most chronic disease.

Our Western diet is the problem, and it cannot be tamed with a potion, lotion, medication, or even a nutraceutical option. It must be eliminated from our diet first, and foremost!

So let me talk a bit about WHITE FLOUR.

How did this Western disease start showing up in different populations?  Well, it fits perfectly with the ability to transport refined sugar and refined flour like white flour.

Again, How old do you think white flour is? Our ancestors had hardly any grains, amounts of grains considered minuscule by today’s standards. The Agricultural Revolution led to a lot of great things for civilization, but improving our health, despite what you and I have been taught, was NOT one of them.

Less than 150 years ago you literally could not produce white flour; it was an Industrial Revolution invention.

Before then, every single kind of flour we had was stone-ground. You had to stone-grind your wheat to get your flour. When you stone-grind flour, you cannot separate the germ from the kernel. You CAN separate the bran, but you cannot separate the germ from the kernel.

Along comes the Industrial Revolution and suddenly, they know after thousands of years of stone grinding, one can now press it with iron rollers; you can pop the germ out from the kernel, and create this white flour.

The germ had Omega-3 fatty acids and other added nutrients, but, those nutrients cause the flour to spoil, so it lasted for a shorter period, and it had this yellowish, grayish color.

Now, When farmers were able to figure out how to get the germ out and create pure white flour, they thought they were incredibly smart.

Here lies the truth, many experts today, consider this the first fast food; everyone wanted it, and everyone got it because white flour was able to last a lot longer than the yellowish gray flower which had more nutrients.

Now, you can transport sugar and flour, put it in a ship and take it around the world, thus carrying Western disease globally. Bottom line, Sugar and flour are at the root of passing along this Western disease.

It is fascinating to think and to read about, but for our purpose, remember that sugar and white flour did not exist as we know it today. Before 1870 there was only stone ground wheat.  By 1880 all stones had been replaced with iron, steel, or porcelain rollers throughout Europe and America.  It marked the beginning of the Industrial revolution of our food.  Refined white flour became the first fast food so to speak.  This recent invention became a problem for our biology as it is nutritionally deficient.

The wheat, corn and rice flours suffer from the same fate.  Many epidemics such as, pellagra, and beriberi began appearing wherever these products were consumed.  Not until 1995 did the public health authorities begin adding fortified folic acid to these products and other chemicals to attempt to balance the epidemics.  It failed miserably. Today, we are plagued with deficiency diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and certain cancers, to name a few.

In the year 1700, we ate stone-ground flour at five pounds, annually. Combine that with 150 pounds of sugar, and that does not make a lot of sense. So, again we want to rewind our little clocks here and see if we can go back to that inner Aborigine without having to leave civilization. Bad news, you are going to need to remove edible food-like substances from your diet if you are even remotely serious about getting rid of those toxins, poisons, and anti-nutrients.

What does that mean? It means you need to eliminate/reduce your sugar intake. By the way, liquid sugar calories are the easiest place to start.

Quit consuming liquids with sugar; these vitamin waters are a total joke. They are toxic legal stuff- leave them on the shelf, and drink pure water. Dr. John Ratey, the world’s leading psychiatrist who coined the term ADHD, wrote Spark, on the science of exercise on the brain, and another book called Go Wild, says that fruit juices are one of the biggest mistakes that otherwise great parents make with their children. That hyper-concentrated sugar, rampant in quantity in that juice, again did not exist thousands of years ago. Sugar drinks are not good for our kids, and our bodies have no clue what to do with it. Sugar flips those metabolic switches.  Ritalin, adderall or psychiatric medications is not the solution; get you kids off sugar; that’s the solution, and the only solution!  There is no other choice.

A Dr. Phil moment, Accept it, get over it, own it and move on…

Dr. David Ludwig, MD, PhD, a professor in the Department of Nutrition at Harvard School of Public Health, is one of the foremost experts when it comes to carbohydrates.  His research focuses on the effects of diet on hormones, metabolism and body weight, and he developed a “low glycemic load” diet- one that decreases the surge in blood sugar after meals.  He found when you give people these fast-acting carbohydrates without a lot of the healthy fats; you are giving children an ADHD diagnosis- precisely what the U.S. government has been recommending over the last 40-50 years. You know that suggestion from the Standard American Diet, they give you breakfast as a whole wheat bagel with fat-free cream cheese, cereal and a glass of orange juice? What does that do?

The child that consumed this type of breakfast has no fat, no protein, and a high glycemic index.  His blood sugar goes up, and then crashes, which triggers the release of stress hormones like adrenaline.  Then, around 10:00 a.m., you have a kid with low blood sugar and lots of adrenaline circulating in his bloodstream.  He’s spastic, jittery and fidgety and unable to pay attention.

The teacher tells the parents that your kiddo has ADHD and you go to the doctor whom doesn’t ask about what your kiddo eats and hands you prescriptive stimulants such as methylphenidate (Ritalin), amphetamines (Adderall) or other types of medications such as Strattera, drugs under the same class as cocaine!

This sounds like a Saturday night skit… I mean this is outrageous.  How can you do that to a kid.  You can’t even get into the military if you have taken Ritalin even once! Did you know that?

Your kiddo has been named and labeled by two authorities; even though both authorities are ignorant to the matter.  Again, in the 17th century we had medical doctors with pliers and whiskey; we also had dentists.  Which should you pick for the dental issue? You getting this.

Later, as time passes, your kiddo becomes very depressed and even suicidal. (pause)  I want to be very gentle here.  I understand other issues happen.  But I want you to understand that a drug, or even a nutrition problem will never counter balance the toxic effect of sugar. And again, I’m not concerned about sugar found in fruit.  That is not what I’m talking about here, Im talking about getting rid of the fake foods here, the artificial stuff.

As a concerned parent, you take him back to the doctor, whom still never asks about diet.  Your doctor gives him Prozac and recommends your child see a psychologist- whom still doesn’t ask him about his diet.  And what is the suicide rate amongst kids these days?  Again, I need to be gentle, I understand that.  But can you at least see the correlation?

When you give your kid fake processed foods and sugar, Mom and Dad, you just gave your kid a perfect recipe to have their focus diminished, which science has shown actually shrinks their brain, as children are still developing and that reduce their ability to learn, lowering their self-esteem; at best.  It worst, because of the brain damage, they  get a new diagnosis and a chronic disease.

Who’s to blame?
Is it the child’s fault?
Is it the parents fault?
You can’t blame the medical doctor as they get zero diet and nutrition in medical school!  So, whose fault is it?  You chose the doctor with the pliers and the whiskey!

America, you chose the doctor with pliers and the whiskey!

The solution is simple.  Mom and dad, you’re not being more loving by giving in to the poor nutritional demands of your kiddos; you bought it!  Remove those liquid sugar calories from your home, and eliminate all the other pseudo foods which start with things like bread. The wheat Christ ate is not what we eat today. In the old days, bread had less than five ingredients: yeast, flour, water and a pinch of salt.  It was not the Wonder Bread with 50+ lab science additives.

The fact that your medical doctor doesn’t know any of this?  GET OVER IT!  I’m not knocking them for that, they have enough on their plate. You need to understand, It simply is not in their education.  Now.  I will say. Unless they have gotten more education on their own; outside standard medical school on nutrition and lifestyle medicine.  Because we have experts who specialize in lifestyle medicine and nutrition, they ought to be referring to chiropractors and nutritionists, lifestyle doctors.  But again, its a shame.  Because quite frankly, that would be considered malpractice in any other speciality.  You see why   we need a change?

So Remember, if the food sitting in front of you is not real, do not eat it.  It does not deserve to be in your body; of course, in this day and age, we have got the refined flour crackers, cookies, pizza dough, and more. Sorry to break the news again; I feel horrible in saying it, but pasta is all refined white flour and ultra-processed foods.  It doesn’t matter if it’s gluten free or wheat free pasta.

Fifty-eight percent of our calories now are ultra-processed foods that did not exist 150 years ago. Take the garbage out of your diet by focusing primarily on sugar, pasta and flour.  After you do that, send me a note of thanksgiving as to how you, (Dr. Mom and Dr. Dad) saved the life of your kiddo and your family!

Until next time, I’m Dr. Matt Hammett reminding you to lighten up, move better and live fuller.  See you next Dynamism Biohack.

Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.
Frustrating isn’t it?  What are we suppose to believe?

In this training I’m going to explain why we got it wrong when we counted calories and what we should really focus on.

And that leads us to Dynamism Biohack #5: Metabolic Switches.

Calories, thats a bad thing from the past.  if your doctor is telling you to count your calories, or is worried about your calories.  fire that doctor.  That ideology is what killed my mother, and it may kill you.  Say what? Find out next.

METABOLIC SWITCHES
There are two schools of thought when it comes to calories. Most people these days believe that a calorie equals a calorie, which is one of the reasons why fat has been demonized.

Most people think that if you want to get rid of the fat in your body, you need to lessen the amount of fat you are eating.   They put a name to it, they called it the energy balance theory. Hypothetically, energy coming into the body needs to be matched with energy going out of the body. They taught us to balance calories in with the calories burned; that would be awesome if that were true, use common sense, it is not true.

The science points to the fact that there is something else going on; essentially, the only time that a calorie equals a calorie is in a science lab vacuum!

If you take, for example, 100 calories of honey and 100 calories of butter, and burn that in a lab vacuum, they will both produce 100 calories of energy.  A calorie equals a calorie in a vacuum, but your body is not a vacuum.

When that fat comes into your body, your body has different metabolic switches that are pulled, depending on the type of calorie, and that is a very important fact. This is juxtaposed from the energy balance “calorie in and calorie out” approach, otherwise called the metabolic or hormonal hypothesis. so, different calories affect you differently.

The caloric comparison is an important point to consider, and this is the research that brings it home for me.  Dr. David Ludwig, who wrote a book called Always Hungry, is a fascinating guy who has an M.D. and a Ph. D. is a professor at Harvard’s School of Medicine and Harvard School of Nutrition in their School of Public Health.  He brought people into his lab and split them into two groups. Both groups got a milkshake that had the same breakdown, regarding carbohydrates, proteins, fats, and sweetness.

However, he altered one little part of the experiment. One group got what he called fast-acting carbohydrates, and the other group got what he called slow-acting carbohydrates.  In this experiment, he compared the fast-acting carbohydrates versus the slow-acting carbohydrates, but calories were the same, and the breakdown was the same. Now, the “calorie in, calorie out” energy balance theory would say that those should impact the body in the same way- a calorie is a calorie, right? Wrong.

Ludwig found that two things happen when you give this individual fast-acting carbohydrate. First, those fast acting carbohydrates pull different metabolic switches. Your blood sugar skyrockets and then it plummets. This reaction chain is different from that of the slow acting carbohydrate, which does not have this same high and then a low. This is a very important distinction. Secondly, he took these individuals, and he put them into a Functional MRI.

He measured their blood sugar levels, and their hunger levels, which yielded surprising results. The fast-acting group was hungrier than the slow-acting group, and when he put them in a Functional M.R.I., the group that had the fast acting carbohydrates had a part of their brain light up. That part of the brain is called the nucleus accumbens, which is the same as your reward center.  The reward center lights up for cocaine addicts and alcoholics, just as it lights up for people who are consuming fast-acting carbohydrates.

Thats insane isn’t it?!

This discovery was an astonishing thing to consider. As a result, when you want to optimize your nutrition, you have to start by eliminating the fast-acting carbohydrates, since they did not exist a century and a half ago.  We come all the way back to the fact that a calorie is not a calorie.  It’s not about calories in and calories out.  It’s about the fact that different calories impact our bodies in a variety of ways.  They pull different metabolic switches, and if you want to conquer your cravings, you must beat those addictions to these refined carbohydrates and get them eliminated from your diet.

Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.

Frustrating isn’t it?  What are we suppose to believe?

In this training, Im gonna talk about the Standard American Diet or the modern american diet, and how its characterized by that great white shark, the white sugar, white flour and refined carbohydrates. Im gonna debunk the fountain of youth effect that so many of us get duped into believing.  Buy this or that and stay young.  Hog wash.  Im gonna show you how simple it is to remove toxins safely and effectively by how well you eat.

And that leads us into Dyanamism Biohack #4: Be Willing To Experiment.

BE WILLING TO EXPERIMENT

Did you know the American Heart Association actually gave a stamp of heart healthy to Trix, Cocoa Puffs, and other ridiculous “cereals”? They said those are heart healthy because of something else we will discuss soon. Trusting food science and cherry-picking science that goes on in the year 1650 must be done with a level of caution.

So far in our series of Dynamiism Biohack, we are learning how Dynamic people trust our food culture style instead of 1650 rat nutrition science style. I have covered three things, and five additional things from Michael Pollan, about the rise of industrialized foods. I am excited to unpack it in a little more depth and detail on some specific items.

So lets get going.

The Modern American Diet (MAD), or The Standard American Diet (SAD), has changed in the last century because of special interest groups, lobbyists and the industrialization of food. It is characterized by large ‘Great White Sharks’ or huge amounts of simple sugars and refined carbohydrates (now found in everything from cereal to pasta).

These sugars are designed by food scientists, to trick the brain, so you keep craving more of them, even though excess consumption of these fake foods shrink key areas of your brain.  Did you know that, if you eat this stuff, it shrinks key areas of your brain!  Your gonna want to listen to this training, so like it and share it with your friends.

These fake science foods cause the chronic diseases that come from our modern Western diet, and again, they are not seen in traditional diets.

One of the challenges we get into is that our science-oriented culture, which is so great for so many reasons, often wants to treat the ill with a pill- ‘a pill for an ill.’  We get the ‘name it, blame it and tame it with a drug approach.’

Dr. Junger wrote an excellent book called Clean Gut.  He is one of the world’s leading functional medicine doctors. Functional medicine is an impressive evolving set of medicine that looks at the systems and the root causes of our symptoms, rather than just treating the symptoms. For example, imagine a tree that is not doing so well, essentially much like a great deal of modern Western culture’s population. Now, this tree has brown leaves.  A good gardener will come in and say, “Well, this tree has brown leaves; let’s treat the root of the problem and  look at the roots because apparently, it is not getting the proper nutrients and so we need to figure it out from a systems level.”

If you like this training, click that like button, and that share button, so more people may benefit.
From my clinical standpoint, my approach is to come in, and not paint that brown leaf green. When we just prescribe medication to treat insulin issues, or to treat whatever other issues we may have, in prescribing a pill for an ill, that mirrors painting a brown leaf green; not a smart thing to do when you want to get to the root causes and the root causes of these issues are lifestyle choices, and a lot of those lifestyle choices (how well you use your five pillars of a Dynamic health) are nutrition choices- how well you manage your Eat Pillar.

Imagine, if you will, having a pot full of water that is boiling. Well, you can drop in ice cubes to reduce the boil, thus writing a pill for an ill. That will cool the water for a while. If you keep on doing it, you will be OK, but it would be a lot smarter to look at the root cause; there is a fire here, making that water boil.

This seems so simple.  Thats the point.  It is.  Stop eating junk. And put the good stuff in.

Ask yourself, I wonder what would happen if I turned that fire down?

That would be a systems biological approach to your health, which is what we want to take. Got it.  So if your sink is overflowing. Rather than turning off the faucet, medicating yourself with drugs,  you just mop around the ground.  Doesn’t make sense does it?

So what are we really talking about here?  You got to ELIMINATE TOXINS.

Everything I have previously mentioned leads us to this Dynamism Biohack: Be Willing To Experiment.  You got to experiment with safe ways to get rid of the toxins.

There are two parts to this number one rule: eliminate the toxins and eat real food. So we need to eat food; not too much, and mostly plants. We need to eat real food, whole food, not edible food-like substances; not fake food. We need to start with eliminating fake foods because they are toxins.

The fact remains that if you go into nature, you could eat something poisonous that kills you immediately- a risk that exists in nature. You will NOT find food that gives you instant and permanent “fountain of youth effects,” period.
There is no super food on the planet that is going to do that for you once and for all. That is science fiction and apparently our cultural illusion.

But, there are foods that are poisonous on a very specific level; we want to take that and generalize it, pulling back to see that the first rule of good nutrition is to cease eating the poison in the first place. If we stop eating the toxic stuff, it will quit triggering all of the adverse reactions in your body, which are fueled by these chemical-ridden food-like substances.

Different writers call it different things; you can call it stressors, toxins, or poison. You can call it anti-nutrients, or you can call it toxic triggers.  What you introduce into your body creates a toxic response. I like to think of this on two levels; there are universal toxic triggers, and then there are individual toxic triggers.

One of the other important things that we want to emphasize is the bio-individuality of this conversation. There is no one perfect human diet for all people across all phases in seasons of their lives forever. We are each different; we have a different genetic background, and we have a different biological history background. You may have been breastfed, but I was not; that influences things. Your gut does not fully form itself if you are given formula.

Your microbiome is not healed the same way; if you have a history of antibiotics, you have a different microbiome and a different bio-individuality expressing itself.

This needs to be addressed as you adopt your lifestyle choices for your nutrition. Universal and specific toxic triggers both play roles in our health, and we are going to talk about both of those in more depth IN A FUTURE BIOHACK.

For right now, I want to emphasize the point that if you continue to eat foods that are unhealthy, it will trigger a toxic response. It does not matter how much broccoli you eat; yes, broccoli is amazing! Cruciferous vegetables have been proven to help fight cancer more than anything else. That notion is fantastic, but you can not eat enough of that to compensate for a lot of the toxic food that you might be introducing into your diet.

SO REMEMBER, The first rule of nutrition is to eliminate the toxins, thereby eliminating the poisons that are toxic triggers.

In the 1930s, doctors were concerned about the introduction of imitation food because there was legislation passed stating that people had to put ‘imitation’ on the food, and sometimes they had to dye the fruit a different color. If you had introduced elements that were artificial, they were an imitation; the public needed to know that it was not real food. In the 1970s, that legislation was reversed, and the industrialization of the processed food industry totally took off. That is why Trix and Cocoa Puffs, which is imitation food, can actually get an American Heart Association stamp of heart healthy approval. Again, the absurdity of what has happened needs to be addressed, as we navigate and eat that real food.

I’m Dr. Matt Hammett inviting you to lighten up, move better and live fuller.  See ya next Dynamism biohack!

In this episode, Three ways Big Food is destroying the health of our nation!

In this training I’m going to talk about the Rise of Industrialization and the impact it had on our food. I’m going to explain three things that changed food and why it’s not smart to let food experts tell us how to eat.

3,586

I discuss:

  • The root cause of Western Diseases is Industrialization
  • Three things that changed food: Vegetable/Seed oils, Factory Farmed animals, Refined Sugar/Flour (The Great White Shark)
  • Five additional things: Whole food to Refined food, Complexity to Simplicity Soil Microbiome, quality versus quantity, from leaves to seeds, shifted from a food culture to a food science
  • Why food science has taken over the show, arrogance of formula versus breast milk

I am really excited to start you on this journey and I hope to add a lot of value to your life as a whole.

Show Transcript:

INDUSTRIAL FACTORY FOODS
Dynamic people understand that eating fewer processed foods means eating fewer industrial foods. Industrial foods are made using industrial methods, in laboratories with laced chemical ingredients. Factory farms provide a perfect example of such a method; in contrast, foods from the Agricultural Age are grown on a farm or herded on a ranch- just like when our ancestors hunted and gathered in the wild. We have used fire to cook for millions of years, and pounded our meat to tenderize the product; that is all well and good. In truth, industrial food (Twinkies and Wonder Bread) is the real problem, which no nutritionist denies.

Dynamic people view foods that do not rot as a poison to avoid. These include preservatives that are added to the food. These types of chemicals are added to the food product to kill off bacteria or fungus that would shorten the life of the product. The food industry calls them preservatives, but they are really antibiotics. Other chemicals used to enhance texture, color, odor, and flavor also make it difficult for good bacteria to thrive. If the food is at an American gas station, it is highly processed; stay away from it. Simply put, the longer the shelf life of what you are eating, the shorter yours will be.

Dr. David Perlmutter often gives lectures about nutrition to members of the medical community.  He shows the four most common Western staple foods:

1.    Slice of whole wheat bread
2.    Snickers Bar
3.    Tablespoons of white sugar
4.    A banana

He then asks the medical doctors in the audience about what they think which food holds the greatest surge in blood sugar or which has the highest glycemic index. Nine out of ten, the medical doctors pick the wrong food. The slice of whole wheat bread has the highest glycemic index, followed by the table sugar, the Snickers bar, and the banana, respectively. Alarmingly, we have known for more than 30 years that a slice of whole wheat bread increases blood sugar more than table sugar, but we still somehow think that it is impossible.

Therefore, the availability of sugar must diminish. There are remarkable case studies in the literature, involving people transforming their lives and promoting health through the total elimination of gluten from their diets, along with a new appreciation for good fats instead of carbohydrates. They involve people recovering from depression, chronic fatigue, type-II diabetes, obsessive compulsive behavior, brain fog and bipolar disorder.

The question remains for the human genome, and not the rat genome, as to whether or not carbohydrates are a dietary requirement for humans. Surprisingly, we can survive on a minimal amount of carbohydrates; virtually zero, in fact.  Our liver can furnish it as needed, but we cannot go long without fat. Our culture believes that if you eat fat, you will be fat. It has been the prevailing belief system for the last 50 years, and it is wrong. In fact, obesity has nothing to do with dietary fat consumption. The metabolic consequences of obesity have everything to do with our addiction to carbohydrates. In fact, that addiction may very well cause a stress response as you read these words, due to pop culture, rat science, and misconception the past 50 or so years.

Not only is this true for fat, but it is also true for cholesterol.  I won’t get too deep into the myth of cholesterol. For now, just know that eating high cholesterol has no impact on our actual cholesterol levels. In fact, Dr. Mark Hyman, one of the world’s leading functional medicine doctors, and author of numerous New York Times bestselling books would tell you that the alleged correlation between high cholesterol and higher cardiac risk is an absolute fallacy.

The advice you may be receiving from your doctor may very well be putting you at an increasing cardiac risk.
Of all the lessons from this book, I hope you understand that there is a difference between species; the blueprint written on the genome of a species is unique for that species. Extrapolating data from one species to another may work in a lab, but not in reality.

Respect the human genome.  Respect your genome. Fat- not carbohydrates- is the preferred fuel for human metabolism, and has been for all of the human evolution. What a lab rat scientist may attempt to extrapolate for humanity matters not.

Regarding health-promotion, we have consumed a high-fat diet for the past two million years, and it is only since the advent of agriculture roughly ten millennia ago that carbohydrates have become abundant in our food supply.  We still have a hunter-gatherer genome. Our current science and methodology are stuck in 17th-century rat science, even though we have discovered the genome, proving that each species have differing genetic requirements.

Each protein which makes up the building blocks at a molecular level of each species differs remarkably. It is a mistake to focus our attention on the minuscule percentage of biomolecular pathways that seem to be similar between differing genomes- just as it was a mistake to label everything with the cliché that something is genetic. In fact, most everything we are talking about has environmental or epigenetic switches, which you and I get to control with our conscious choices about how well we use our Five Pillars of a Dynamic Health.
Therefore, it is not a golden standard to determine human nutrition from rats or any other animal. I propose and highly recommend that we as a human civilization shift our thinking into human health promotion, based on how our human genome has evolved and adapted for millions of years (despite what someone thinks they have proven on a rat).  At this point, it is the only viable and evidence-based solution. The big idea of this book sets out to prove that statement.

RISE OF INDUSTRIALIZED FOODS
The rise of Industrialization leads to our second facet of the Eat driver. The Western diet is generally the cause of chronic disease. The root cause of the problem is industrialization when you step back and look at everything really going on here. You can debate vegan, or paleo, or what we ate one hundred thousand years ago; rather, what we think we ate one hundred thousand years ago. We can question what happened ten thousand years ago when we introduced agriculture and grains. Those are interesting and (I think) important things to discuss, but what is most powerful is the fact that our diet has changed more in the last one hundred years than it had in the prior hundred thousand years. Why? Industrialization.

We take it for granted. We walk into the store, and we have immediate access to sugar, flour, and all these other ultra-processed foods. But, those things didn’t exist one hundred years ago.  If all we did were rewind to what our great-great-great grandmothers ate, we would be doing really well. Can we rewind to that inner Aborigine without having to leave civilization, though? Dynamic people understand that we do not need to go back to the outback and hunt and gather food.  We want to live in the modern world and do so with a body that resembles an ancient.

THREE THINGS THAT CHANGED FOOD
Three things changed in the industrialization of our food in the last one hundred years.

1.    Vegetable oils and seed oils did not exist.
2.    Factory farmed animals.
3.    We introduced sugar ‘The Great White Shark’: white flour and other refined carbohydrates.

Vegetable oils and seed oils did not exist. Truth be told, we have had olive oil for centuries, but we did not know how to get oil out of soybeans until the Industrial Revolution had the power to do so; we thought that was a good idea. It turns out it proved otherwise. In current American society, the USDA Center for Nutrition Policy reports that we eat 20% of our calories from soybean oil alone, a substance that did not exist 100 years ago.

Factory farmed animals did not exist. Factory farmed animals are horrific for many reasons. There are the ethical and the environmental concerns, but for now, we are going to focus on the nutritional concerns. When you bring an animal into a factory farm environment, you introduce three things that are not healthful:

When we put all this together, we can compare a factory animal with an industrialized human (you and me).   Do you see the correlation?

It seems relatively easy- stop living like a factory animal and live like a wild animal!

When you put all that together, you have a nutritional nightmare. We have our ‘Great White Shark,’ the refined sugar and flour. We have our vegetable and seed oils, and we have our factory farmed animals. The whole discussion around animals is a longer, more sensitive discussion; however, there is no debate about the fact that factory-farmed animal products and grain-fed meat are not a smart thing for us to consume.

These three things changed with industrialization, and they are not debatable. It does not matter what science camp you come from; those are significant variables that have changed in the human diet. Again our diet has changed more in the last hundred years than it has over the prior hundred thousand years.

There are five additional things that Michael Pollan tells us we need to think about, regarding the industrialization of our food.

1.    Whole food to refined food.  We went from a whole food to refined food. We went from complexity to simplicity. Pollan tells us to look at our soil, once rich and complex. Now, we have learned how to engineer soil scientifically. Making it easier is not a good thing; it impacts the soil microbiome, the ecosystem microbiome and our gut microbiome in a very negative sick way.

2.    A complex array of food to simpler.  We have also gone from a super complex array of foods to only a few selections. Thomas Jefferson had hundreds of different types of vegetables and hundreds of the various types of fruit trees on his estate at Monticello. Now, 66% of our calories come from only four seeds: rice, corn, soy, and wheat. We went from complexity to simplicity, and it is making us chronically sicker.

3.    The food quality to food quantity. When you introduce industrialization, it concerns more volume; you stop thinking about quality.  In Europe, where the same level of issues that we have currently is not present, they spend 20% of their total take-home income on their food!  Here in the States, we pay 10%; it is wise to focus on quality more than the quantity.

4.    From leaves to seeds. We used to eat a ton of leaves.  Today, we eat almost exclusively seeds and no leaves- not a smart transition. If you can recall, earlier in the section of the Eat driver, I already mentioned that we did not eat seeds until very recently. Again, you can define recently, as 100 years ago, or ten thousand years, if you look at the big picture.

5.    Shifted from a food culture perspective to a food science perspective. We used to trust our food culture; Michael Pollan often jokes saying, “Mom used to know what was good for us eat.” Now we ask our food scientists who have a deep financial interest in what is good for us. That is a significant shift you might take it for granted, but 100 years ago, no one was asking anybody else what we should eat.

We had a culture that knew what was best for us and we had evolved on that over a long period. Now we look at science and say, “Hey what’s good for us?” Weird things can happen when you have food scientists taking over the show.  One example of this is breast milk; scientists actually thought they were going to make an artificial breast milk, formula, healthier than natural breast milk. That is the height of food science hubris to think that one can take the most natural, vital source of nutrition that nature has ever created- breastmilk- and you are going to make it better!

Well, that was the story food scientists shared- absolutely insane. Science is unequivocally clear: breast milk will never be recreated in a bottle. Again, the subject breeds a whole different conversation, but we want to realize how often we look at food scientists when we need to learn to trust ourselves more. That leads us to our third facet of the Eat driver:  you have to be willing to experiment.

Industrial Factory Foods

It is remarkable when nutrition experts tell us to eat less processed foods.  We all know that.  But did you know that Industrial foods are processed foods? Frustrated?

You have to understand that eating fewer processed foods means eating fewer industrial foods. What are Industrial foods? Anything made using industrial methods.  Anything made in laboratories with there laced chemical ingredients. Factory farms provide a perfect example of such a method; I hate to be the guy to tell ya. But the foods from the Agricultural Age are grown on a farm, or herded on a ranch- just like when our ancestors  hunted and gathered in the wild. You see, we have used fire to cook since the inception of man, and pounded our meat to tenderize the product; that is all well and good. In truth, industrial foods are foods like Twinkies and Wonder Bread are the real problem, which no nutritionist denies.

And that lead us to Dynamism Biohack #2: Avoid Industrial Factory Foods.

In this training, I’m going to explain why eating food that never rots, will shorten your life.  I’m gonna discuss why rat and animal research for nutrition, may not be the most accurate science for humanity.  So what is?  Find out next.

Rule to Remember: The tricky food industry calls it a preservative. Essentially, it is an antibiotic designed to lengthen the shelf life and shorten yours. This is all you need to know about preservatives, if the “food” you are eating does not rot, it is not food.

These foods are a poison you need to avoid. These include preservatives that are added to the food. These types of chemicals are added to the food product to kill off bacteria or fungus that would shorten the life of the product. The food industry calls them preservatives, but they are really antibiotics.

Other chemicals used to enhance texture, colour, odour, and flavour also make it difficult for good bacteria to thrive.  You see, stop being a germaphobic, We need good bacteria, its essential to human life, we are animated earth.

So let me give you this tip, If the food is at an American gas station, it is highly processed; stay away from it. Simply put, the longer the shelf life of what you are eating, the shorter yours will be.

If you like this training your getting, please punch that like button, or love button.  And by all means hit that share button, so more people can benefit from this; as you can see, this is life changing stuff that you will find your doctor just doesn’t know this stuff. get over it.  I am.

Dr. David Perlmutter often gives lectures about nutrition to members of the medical community.  In one of his presentations He shows what he calls, the four most common Western staple foods:

He shows a Slice of whole wheat bread, Snickers Bar, Tablespoons of white sugar, and A banana. He then asks the medical doctors in the audience about what they think which food holds the greatest surge in blood sugar or which has the highest glycemic index.  Now, for anyone who studied just a tiny bit of nutrition, knows the answer to that.  I mean, my 3rd grader knows.  Not to put pressure on you or them, but, I’m just saying…

So guess what happened?  Nine out of ten, the medical doctors pick the wrong food.

In case you are wondering.  The slice of whole wheat bread has the highest glycemic index, followed by the table sugar, the Snickers bar, and the banana, respectively.

Alarming!  What’s worst, we have known for more than 30 years that a slice of whole wheat bread increases blood sugar more than table sugar, but we still somehow think that it is impossible because the guy we see for our diabetes doesn’t even know that fact?

Am I getting through to you yet?  How is that possible, the diabetes expert doesn’t even know that.  So what is the first staple food to eliminate if your a diabetic?  Yeah, the bread!

The fact is, few foods produce as much of a surge in blood glucose, as those made with wheat. Perlmutter makes it clear, “The bottom line is that if you want to reduce oxidative stress and the action of free radicals, or the stuff harming your brain, you have to lessen the glycation of proteins. or the bonding of the sugar molecules to a protein; by eliminating wheat and gluten.

In other words, the availability of sugar must diminish. There are remarkable case studies in the literature, involving people transforming their lives and promoting health through the total elimination of gluten from their diets, along with a new appreciation for good fats instead of carbohydrates. They involve people recovering from depression, chronic fatigue, type-II diabetes, obsessive compulsive behavior, brain fog and bipolar disorder.

How your doctor can sit there and deny this, is beyond me.  I don’t get it.  It is so frustrating, except that my 3rd grader knows more than a medical doctor knows when it comes to nutrition.

I sound like I am being rude.  I am simply stating an objective fact.  I need you to understand that.

Let me put it to you this way.  You wouldn’t ask your medical doctor to treat a dental problem.  You would ask your dentist.  Don’t ask your medical doctor who is a doctor of medicine, a nutrition question, or a musculoskeletal problem.  You would ask your natural health doctor or your chiropractor.  Got it?

So, I had a patient the other day, she is still counting carbohydrates.  Now, they don’t even know what a carbohydrate is.  But there doctor suggested it.  Really…

Okay.  Now that’s the 19th century at it’s best.  Carbohydrates.  We got that science from rats; too.

The question remain for the human genome, and not the rat genome, as to whether or not carbohydrates are a dietary requirement for humans. Surprisingly, we can survive on a minimal amount of carbohydrates; virtually zero, in fact.

Our liver can furnish it as needed, but we cannot go long without fat. Our culture believes that if you eat fat, you will be fat. It has been the prevailing belief system for the last 50 years, and it is wrong. In fact, obesity has nothing to do with dietary fat consumption.  Okay, hold on here….

The metabolic consequences of obesity have everything to do with our addiction to carbohydrates. In fact, that addiction may very well cause a stress response as you read these words, due to pop culture, rat science, and misconception the past 50 or so years.

Not only is this true for fat, but it is also true for cholesterol.  I won’t get too deep into the myth of cholesterol. For now, just know that eating high cholesterol has no impact on our actual cholesterol levels.

In fact, Dr. Mark Hyman, one of the world’s leading functional medicine doctors, and author of numerous New York Times bestselling books would tell you that the alleged correlation between high cholesterol and higher cardiac risk is an absolute fallacy.

He will tell you, that The advice you may be receiving from your doctor may very well be putting you at an increasing cardiac risk.

Again, If you like this training, please punch that like button, or if this is life changing for you, hit that love button.  And by all means hit that share button, so more people can benefit from this. Of all the lessons from this training, I hope you understand that there is a difference between species; the blueprint written on the genome of a species is unique for that species. Extrapolating data from one species to another may work in a lab, but not in reality.  In fact, never in reality.

I covered this extensively in a Facebook Live video I did, called Animal Research, so check that one out.

Bottom line. Respect the human genome.  Respect your genome. Fat- not carbohydrates- is the preferred fuel for human metabolism, and has been for all of the human evolution. What a lab rat scientist may attempt to extrapolate for humanity matters not.

Regarding health-promotion, we have consumed a high-fat diet for the past millennium, and it is only since the advent of agriculture roughly ten millenia ago that carbohydrates have become abundant in our food supply.

So write down this tip. We still have a hunter-gatherer genome. Our current science and methodology are stuck in 17th-century rat science, even though we have discovered the genome, proving that each species have differing genetic requirements.

Each protein which makes up the building blocks at a molecular level of each species differs remarkably.

It is a mistake to focus our attention on the minuscule percentage of biomolecular pathways that seem to be similar between differing genomes- just as it was a mistake to label everything with the cliché that something is genetic.

In fact, most everything we are talking about has environmental or epigenetic switches, which you and I get to control with our conscious choices about how well we use our Five Pillars of a Dynamic Health. Even the most conservative genetist will tell you that an 80 % up to a 97% of our genes are controlled by our environment, how well you eat, move, think, connect, and cope with stressors in our environment.

So, thanks to the newer science, we know rat science, is not a golden standard to determine human nutrition from rats or any other animal.

I propose and highly recommend that we as a human civilization shift our thinking into human health-promotion, based on how our human genome has evolved and adapted for since mankind was first placed on earth (despite what someone thinks they have proven on a rat).

At this point, it is the only viable and evidence-based solution.  We had 100 plus years studying animals for the pursuant of sickness and pathology.  Lets shift our focus and include healthology.  a term not yet in the dictionary, or the study of health.  and lets use healthy people as the benchmark for that research, not sick people.  That is The big idea for this training when we talk about wellness and prevention, the health promotion solution; thats dynamism.

I’m Dr. Matt Hammett inviting you to lighten up, move better and live fuller.  See ya next Dynamism biohack!

  • Why Nutrition Science is like surgery in the year 1650
  • How a trusted nutrition guru can off the deep end
  • Where chronic diseases really come from and how to Defeat it with food

Show Transcript:

Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.

Frustrating isn’t it?  What are we suppose to believe?

In this training, I’m going to transcend all of that discussion and find the things that everybody agrees on and I want to make a special note of the fact that as Michael Pollan says about the science of nutrition. He says, “nutrition science is very, very young to put it charitably”.  He says, “it’s kind of like surgery in the year 1650. Surgery in 1650, had a lot of potential- very interesting, but you wouldn’t want them working on you quite yet; they have some more work to do”.  In other words, modern nutrition science is very similar to surgery in the year 1650.

And that lead us to Dynamism Biohack #1: Your Inner Aborignee

Tap into your inner aborigine by e ating real food.  Don’t let cherry Picking science distract you!  What am I talking about?  Find out next.

Now… I want you to take that statement in… I know what your thinking, but the experts say this and that.  Yeah, and they never agree do they?

1650… You see, It is easy to cherry pick in science, which basically means you pick the data that supports your perspective. This issue seems to be the new fad filling the online blog world. For nutrition science, it’s even easier to cherry pick the data and twists it toward a certain interest, to push a new nutraceutical product.  Kind of like they did with krill oil.  Have you seen my video on the fish oils buyers guide.  Check that one out.  You don’t want to eat krill, its poisonous to us.  if you eat in the wild, it could kill you.

watch that video, it will blow you away, it serves as a great example of cherry picking science by well meaning individuals, some of these experts are my personal friends.  Quite honestly, they mean well.  They just don’t realize that their doing.  Thats what happens when a push for a new product gets released; we forget to question the validity of the science, or ask the common senses questions in science.  that’s how a trusted guru can go off the deep end.  it happens a ton in this world.

If you like this training your getting, please punch that like button, or love button.  And by all means hit that share button, so more people can benefit from this; as you can see, this is life changing.

At any rate, Dynamic people start with that awareness when they hear about nutrition science proving this or proving that; well they know that that it’s kind of like surgery in 1650.  They don’t just jump in the boat.  In my experience, the more traditional, the better. I don’t jump at the latest fad, because beneath all those promises and so called new secrets; this is marketing at its best. Just ask yourself, does great, great grandma recognize it?  If not, I’m slow to accept it, let alone put it in my body.

The truth is, the more I study nutrition, the easier and the simpler it becomes. Caged people who go with the flow in society think it’s super complicated because popular culture has made nutrition to be super complicated. Actually, it’s rather simple.

There are two facts you can boil down this whole science into seven words. Those seven words are what Michael Pollan says, “eat food, not too much, mostly plants”. He jokingly says, “There you go”.

That is what you should do eat food- real food, not fake food.

There are at least two facts about nutrition that everyone agrees on.  Western diet creates chronic diseases anywhere that Western diet has penetrated an area or a culture. You’re going to find chronic diseases with the Western diet, our diet in America.

Chronic diseases like heart disease diabetes, depression, auto immune, hormonal issues, etc. That’s the first fact. It’s an indisputable fact, when the Western diet is present you will find chronic diseases.

The second fact is those chronic diseases do not exist in traditional diets and in environments that have preserved the traditional nutritional approach. Yes, the traditional diet varies greatly, but none of them have been associated with chronic diseases.

In other words, looking at the various researches, we can look at the Inuit, who are living on basically fat from seals and other wildlife in the ocean who
have no chronic diseases. They get their nutrients in their traditional diet primarily from fat, but they have no chronic diseases.

Once again, If you like this training your getting, please punch that like button, or love button.  And by all means hit that share button, so more people can benefit from this training.  Especially those people you know, who have made the study of nutrition so darn complicated.  Click that share button and let them watch this video.

Let’s take a peak at the data from the Masaya people who live on meat, blood and milk, really high protein. Again, their traditional diet has no chronic diseases. The data from South American Indians almost live exclusively on carbohydrates
with no chronic diseases.

The point that the data demonstrates, there is no one perfect human diet. Aborigine
cultures can exist on a very high fat diet on a very high protein diet on a very high carbohydrate diet as long as you don’t have from a traditional diet perspective, the influence of Western diet elements. If you do not adopt the Western diet
elements, you do not get chronic disease.

There is no one perfect human diet but very importantly there is one perfect horrible diet… and that is the Western diet.

So the focus of the Eat Pillar, a metaphor i like to use, that our health is how well we eat, move, think, connect and cope with stressors.  These are the five pillars of a dynamic health and the root of dynamism in life.  Because if you don’t have your health, what do you have?

So the major focus of the Eat Pillar as I like to call it,  is to get off the Western diet as much as we can.

To do that, we need to define what I mean by the Western diet.  Ive learned over these years, I have to define my definition of the Western diet.  Because we all have our own definition.  So that leads us to the first dynamism biohack of the Eat Pillar: your Inner Aborigine.

The Australian outback’s is were Aborigines live in a very traditional environment like hunting and gathering. They did an interesting research study on this particular group. They went into the western environment and started eating the foods that we eat in a Western environment. They began eating a lot more sugar, a lot more flour and wheat. And what happened. Well what happened is they got chronic Western
diseases, their diabetes levels went up, their heart disease went up, etc. They asked an interesting question?

What would happen if we took these Aborigines who just got these diseases and put them back into their native environment?  Well, they still had the skills needed to hunt and gather;  Long story short, they went back into that environment they hunted and gathered in; just seven weeks they reversed nearly all of the symptoms of that Western diet.  No more chronic disease, no more heart disease, no more diabetes, and on and on.

The point with this is we all have our Inner Aborigine. We all have a body that wants to heal itself and when we get off of the traditional Western diet it’s actually surprisingly easy to eliminate our risk factors for heart disease, diabetes,
depression, auto-immune, hormonal challenges, etc.  So next time you reach for a meal, do it with dynamism and tap into your Inner Aborigine.

I’m Dr. Matt Hammett inviting you to lighten up, move better and live fuller.  See ya next Dynamism biohack!

Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.
Frustrating isn’t it?  What are we suppose to believe?
In this training, I’m going to transcend all of that discussion and find the things that everybody agrees on and I want to make a special note of the fact that as Michael Pollan says about the science of nutrition. He says, “nutrition science is very, very young to put it charitably”.  He says, “it’s kind of like surgery in the year 1650. Surgery in 1650, had a lot of potential- very interesting, but you wouldn’t want them working on you quite yet; they have some more work to do”.  In other words, modern nutrition science is very similar to surgery in the year 1650.
And that lead us to Dynamism Biohack #1: Your Inner Aborignee

Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.

Frustrating isn’t it? What are we suppose to believe?

Welcome to Dynamism Biohack, my name is Dr. Matt Hammett Wellness & Nutrition Expert, Lifestyle Trainer and Movement Enthusiast. In each week I’m going share with you how to make the right nutritious choices despite conflicting expert opinions where I help you to discover how to unlock your inner aborigine or your inner greatness. Thank you for spending this time with me today, so let’s get into the training.

But we have other issues as well.

Like CHEMICAL POLLUTION.

The United States is the most medicated nation in the world. Most of us don’t consider that a chemical pollution- were taught medicine is medicine, not a chemical pollution. Consider this. The U.S. consumes 68% of all of the drugs in the world at the rate of 250,000 pills an hour, twenty-four hours a day. Do the math.

Why is this a concern to us?

Drugs are foreign to the body. Your epigenome does not recognize foreign products or synthetics. Yet, your DNA has to do something with it, it has to break it down an execute a program for it.

Drugs work by altering the body’s natural biochemistry in order to suppress symptoms. It’s called palliative care, in Latin it means, to cover up. And newer drugs try to change and engineer your DNA, this is an extremely controversial situation in the natural health world.

Let me explore this for a moment. If you have a plant growing in the back yard and it was dying. You could identify certain genes that seem to express and represent the decay. That’s true. But nothing says that by altering that gene, or engineering that gene will change the health of that plant.

It could, and very often does, make it worse. What if the problem is not the gene expression at all. What if the gene switching on while the plant was decaying was happening because your neighbor was dumping oil into the root system of your plant?

It’s not genetic. Be-careful with cliché; it’s the environment. 98% specifically, environment. No longer even a debate; no question.

If you have a hard time believing that. We once believed the Earth was flat.

Look, even with suppressed symptoms, the true cause of the problem may grow worse with the body’s natural healing mechanism compromised by the drugs.

In, fact by interfering with normal cell function, drugs cause cellular malfunction, gene defects, so called spontaneous mutations, even epigenetically down our family line, which is the same as causing disease, for us and our kids.

In addition to toxicity, drugs also cause severe nutritional deficiencies by depleting the body of essential nutrients. And, unless your medical doctor further his or hers education in nutrition, those nutritional deficiencies are never addressed.

Antibiotics, anti-inflammatories and steroids all damage the human digestive system by impairing the ability of the body to digest food and absorb nutrients. Did you know the gut has been called the 2nd brain. I won’t get into that, but think about that. Your damaging your 2nd brain when you take over the counter and prescriptive drugs.

The main side effect of steroids is to increase many of the parameters of aging. This includes arthritis, degenerative changes of joints, etc. These are all well documented in scientific literature.

Research has shown that NSAIDS, such as aspirin and ibuprofen interfere at the cellular level with the mechanism responsible for rebuilding and repairing cartilage. As a chiropractor, I see signs of this on xray film, and when I ask, I find out people, (actually even doctors and nurses- patients of mine- tell me they take this stuff for years to cover up the pain.)

They take NSAIDS for years, and they think that is normal. They think taking an over the counter drug or a prescriptive drug is normal!

NSAIDS actually cause degradation of joint cartilage causing further degeneration to the joints. This inhibits normal joint movement, which inhibits normal stimulation to the brain. When you inhibit joint movement and normal stimulation the brain, within 30 minutes, you have grey matter lesions which lead to white matter lesions which lead to shrinking key brain areas; and in children, because they are trying to grow and develop more so than in any other time of their life; get bone density loss because of the loss of mechanoreception and loss of gravity between moving joints.

See it’s not just the sitting. The sitting devastatingly causes immobile spinal joints, which shuts down the windmill of the spine that is the power generator to the brain and body.

You know doctors and nurses who come to see me. After I share this information with them- their eyes gloss over- they tell me they never hear or knew any of this! They appear brain washed. They believe what they were taught and discount anything else because they believe what they were taught in medical school or nursing school. They truly feel, if they weren’t taught something, then it must not be true!

You know, I hesitate in adding this here. But I just happened to see an episode on Hitler and the Nazi before and during world war II. I’m not trying to make a definitive comparison here; because it’s not. But, during world war II, the Nazi’s used marketing to brain wash germany.

One account, I will paraphrase as I remember it, but in the documentary explained how they would pick some jews, instead of taking them straight to the gas chambers, they would promise them, if they helped produce some films, they would let them go. They wanted to create an international film with Nazi propaganda in a friendly light showing how the jews were treated will and not mis-treated.

These actors were mostly woman and children, and they agreed to act happy for the film as they were promised freedom. The horror of the story goes, all of these actors in the film, were sent to concentration camps and killed.

The documentary continued to explain that all media was controlled for Nazi propaganda so mass brain washing come begin. They even took control of all the education system, even children began Nazi propaganda and military training.

You see, today, like the Nazi propaganda, there is both financial interest and politics, just like it is today.

Do you think were different?

Pay attention to the drug commercials you hear on TV every few minutes. By the way, its only legal to advertise Big Pharma in the USA and UK. Propaganda. And guess what. Big Pharma and Big Food own all major media companies in both radio and TV. Big Pharma owns our schools, universities, and even our government.

Again, I’m just the reporter here. I’m not making any suggestions. I just happened to watch that documentary and it seemed like a good idea to share it.

Moving on….

So let me talk a bit about NEUROLOGICAL STRESS.

The human body can respond and adapt to just about anything it encounters provided it is a state of homeostasis, which means that the body is able to send and receive nerve information. The central nervous system is the master control system of the body and every single function reflects its activity.

Nerve impulses travel from the brain, down the spinal cord and out through nerves to all parts of the body. Nerve impulses then return to the brain through return pathways.

There are in excess of 100 billion neurons, or nerve cells in the human central nervous system and the number of possible interconnections between these cells is greater than the total number of electrons in the known universe. Isn’t that mind blowing!

So you ask, Dr. Matt, what exactly is The Role of the Nervous System in Lifespan Determination?

Recent studies in diverse organisms have provided evidence that, indeed the brain may control
lifespan. Signaling pathways involved in both central nervous system and peripheral stress
responses and regulation of energy metabolism may play important roles in lifespan determination.

The brain also controls neuroendocrine systems strongly implicated in aging. The hypothalamic- pituitary system; these are a part of the key brain areas that shrink with immobility, and they have a strong influence on lifespan. Again, may I add, a chiropractic adjustment stimulates proper control of these systems.

A consistent feature of environmental and genetic factors that increase longevity is that they increase cellular resistance to stress. The brain coordinates the responses of the whole body to such stressors on both rapid and long-term time scales by modulating the activities of neuroendocrine pathways (involving the hypothalamus and pituitary gland) and the autonomic nervous system.

The responses typically involve a behavioral response (fleeing the tiger), a vascular response (increased blood pressure and diversion of blood flow from the gut to muscles) and a metabolic response (increased mobilization of glucose).

By the way, this is why NASA is saying that immobility past 30 minutes is the deeper layer of Type II diabetes. The Finnish Twin study proved it, the diet was the same over a period of years, it was the lack of tiny daily movement, or immobility past 30 minutes that causes a pre-diabetic state and eventual Type II diabetes.

At any rate, an increased ability of an organism to escape from a potentially lethal stressor will obviously increase its probability of having a long lifespan, and this is one way the brain can determine average lifespan.

However, the brain may also control maximum lifespan by its ability to stimulate signaling
pathways that increase the resistance of cells to stress.

So how chiropractic corrects this is by checking the spine for VERTEBRAL SUBLUXATIONS The vertebra of the spine protects the central nervous system. Because the spinal column is moveable, it is also susceptible to various stresses and forces, which can cause them to lose their proper structural position, inhibiting their function which as you now understand the vital function is to generate the power to the brain and body including every tissue, cell and organ of the body.

These faulty mechanics of the spine, known as “vertebral subluxations” inhibit normal spinal movement, which diminishes proprioception and decreased nerve signaling to the brain, causing an increase of nociception or bad stress signals, causes what neuroscience causes noise and chiropractors call nerve interference.

This resulting in decreased nervous system function, loss of synapses or connection between the nerve to nerve signaling, nerve to muscle signaling, nerve to gland signaling, nerve to organ signaling, nerve to cell signaling, nerve to tissue signaling, and causes improper and/ or delayed healing, cellular death, cancer and accelerated aging.

Subluxations also alter the optimal structure of the spine, which weakens it and increases degeneration. Vertebral subluxations are often referred to as the “Silent Killer” because they can be present for long periods without any evidence of pain or symptoms. This is similar to a cavity eating away at a tooth, only properly addressed and treated by a dentist.

Any force that the human body cannot adapt to can cause a vertebral subluxation. Such examples include auto accidents, work related injuries, physical stress, chemical stress- especially side effects from over the counter and/ or prescriptive medications, emotional stress, even mental stress from bad thought, and of course engaging in normal sports activities with or without an injury, and repetitive movements. Such as work or sports performance stress.

In fact, emerging fMRI studies show mechanical cueing is needed during embryogeneis and it has just as importance as the placenta, the umbilical cord and blood flow; it turns out movement in the womb is essential to the normal formation of proteins, cells, tissues, structure and organ function.

And especially the mechanical or lack of movement stress on the baby during and after the birth process.

Vertebral subluxations are devastating to a person’s health and longevity and are well
documented by leading health authorities.

“Subluxation is very real. We have documented it to the extent that no one can dispute its
existence. Vertebral subluxations change the entire health of the body by causing structural
dysfunction of the spine and nerve interference.

One study found that The weight of a dime on a spinal nerve will reduce nerve transmission by as much as sixty percent.”

Again, medical doctors and nurses don’t learn this in medical and nursing school; just as they don’t learn about dentistry and chiropractic.

A basic textbook called Clinical Neuroscience says that Abnormalities of central afferent and efferent pathways, these are the nerve signals going to and from the brain, they have been revealed by evoked potential studies in diabetic patients.

Central nervous system abnormalities are more frequent in patients with peripheral neuropathy, but evoked potential can be abnormal even in patients without neuropathy. Meaning they admit in studies, silent bad things can happen when vertebral subluxation exists, so you don’t need to have any kind of symptom or feel anything at all, and it can be slowly killing you.

This is why a Doctor of Chiropractic is a primary care provider, meaning you don’t need a referral to see a chiropractor. A primary provider is usually an MD, DO or a DC. I bet you never knew that?

In fact, Dr. James Woddersee, a famous Neurosurgeon said that Subluxations of vertebra occur in all parts of the spine and in all degrees. When the dislocation is so slight as to not affect the spinal cord, it will still produce disturbances in the spinal nerves passing off from the foramina.

And this is not theory or some philosophy, research not done by chiropractic from Dr. Lee found that “Hyper-functional or hypo-functional neurons along a neural chain prevent normal nerve transmission causing disturbances in the homeostasis of the cells, tissues and organs.”

Chiropractic is a health care system that is founded on the premise that a properly functioning nervous system is essential to overall health and function of the human body.

Doctors of Chiropractic detect and correct vertebral subluxations by physically adjusting the spine. This restores the nervous system to an optimum level of function, which maximizes the body’s inherent healing potential.

Chiropractic adjustments restore normal nerve function; improve spinal biomechanics, range of
motion, reflex arcs, and posture, all of which are essential to a properly functioning nervous system. Doctors of Chiropractic are experts in spinal structure and body mechanics.

Chiropractic adjustments restore and maintain the structural integrity of the body by correcting spinal subluxations.

Chiropractors emphasize the importance of posture to overall health, a concept that has been often overlooked in traditional methods of health care.

So your POSTURE is a window into your HEALTH; just as Bad Breathe is a window into your dental health.

Some key facts to know about posture.

  • Posture and normal physiology are
    interrelated.
  • Posture affects and moderates every
    physiological function from breathing to
    hormonal production.
  • Abnormal posture is evident in patients with
    chronic and stress related illnesses.
  • Homeostasis and nervous system function
    are ultimately connected with posture.
  • Despite the considerable evidence that
    posture affects physiology and function,
    the significant influence of posture on health
    is not addressed by most physicians.

The American Journal of Pain Management reported that deviations in the body’s center of gravity or poor posture… have resulted in intestinal problems, hemorrhoid, varicose veins, osteoporosis, hip and foot deformities, that was the obvious stuff the journal reported. But then they blew it away when they said that poor posture causes POOR HEALTH, DECREASED QUALITY OF LIFE, and a SHORTENED LIFE SPAN.

And nowhere in the article, is a mention of chiropractic care. Well, if that is so, how can you not refer to a chiropractor who’s primary job, like a dentist, is to fix poor posture and mobilize joints which stimulate neurobiology!

Dr. Lee Hadley, at Syracuse Memorial Hospital recently said that, “Subluxation alone is a rational reason for Chiropractic care throughout a lifetime from birth”.

Another 10 time Nobel Prize nominee has something to add to good posture. He is stress researcher, Dr. Hans Selye. He found that “The beginning of the disease process begins with postural distortions.”

So I always talk about THE CHIROPRACTIC LIFESTYLE. What do I mean by that?

Health care is slowly changing from a symptom, disease based system to a better function, and
performance based system in which the structure of the human body is restored and maintained.

And chiropractic care is at the center of it because it sparks the power generator, to your brain and body!

Correction and maintenance of the structure of the spine is of paramount importance in the pursuit of optimal health and longevity. Yoga, stretches and other exercises are great to help ensure global posture of the spine.

However, it’s the tiny postural segmental movements of the spine that matter most, and those can only be properly attended to by a Doctor of Chiropractic.

In his book, “The Wellness Revolution” economist Paul Zane Pilzer predicted that wellness will become the next trillion-dollar industry.

According to Pilzer, wellness is “not about a fad or trend, it’s about a new and infinite need of infusing itself into the way we eat, exercise, sleep, works, save, age, and almost every other aspect of our lives.”

Wellness incorporates all the elements for preventive health care– nutritious diet, aerobic
conditioning, good posture, strength training, tiny movement, rest and periodic spinal adjustments.

Wellness really involves all aspects of your life.

Although millions of people have experienced relief from back and neck pain through chiropractic care, the focus and intent of chiropractic is far beyond the elimination of symptoms, but rather is in the correction of vertebral subluxations or dysfunctional joints in order to ensure a properly functioning brain and nervous system; so you can get and stay well for a lifetime; that’s Dynamism.

I’m Dr. Matt Hammett inviting you to-
Lighten up, Move Better, and live fuller.

Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.

Frustrating isn’t it? What are we suppose to believe?

Welcome to Dynamism Biohack, my name is Dr. Matt Hammett Wellness & Nutrition Expert, Lifestyle Trainer and Movement Enthusiast. In each week I’m going share with you how to make the right nutritious choices despite conflicting expert opinions where I help you to discover how to unlock your inner aborigine or your inner greatness. Thank you for spending this time with me today, so let’s get into the training.

Americans are living longer than ever before.

The human life expectancy is increasing and barring unforeseen circumstances, we can expect to live to
a ripe old age-that is a ripe old calendar age because our life expectancy has increased, but the quality of our lives and our health has not.

Wouldn’t you agree?

The United States continues to be one of the un-healthiest nations in the developed world. Most of us do not want to live to be 90 if the last 30 years are filled with illness, disability and dependence of family and nursing homes. We want to be able to play golf, take long walks and enjoy our families.

We want those extra years to be quality years. Longer lives do not mean much if they are not active lives. The quality of those years will largely be dictated by the choices we make in the preceding years, choices designed to stave off the aging process.

So here is the truth. We have a much better option while we are young, to stay active, to move every 30 minutes in tiny ways and exercise all our lives; and in that way, we slow our biological aging process while we gain in chronological aging.

It has little or none to do with GENETICS!

AGING is caused by how well you live, how well you eat, move, think, connect, and cope with stressors throughout a lifetime;what I call the 5 pillars of a dynamic health.

Assuming that a person’s entire life is “written” in the genes that they are born with has been a major mistake in recent healthcare philosophy. The more we learn about genetics, our biological inheritance, the more we realize that for the most part, our lifestyle decisions and behaviors have far more
impact on longevity and health than does heredity.

A person’s genes define their basic biology, but health decisions and habits control the way genes will affect the body and health in general. “Genes are unquestionably the fundamental
units by which our bodies are constructed. However, pure genetic determination does not
adequately explain the varied capabilities of our biology.

The debate is over; no one well-versed in science is pretending to have this debate; genes or environment. Environment; no question.

So if we look at the new science, a more accurate view of the role of the genome is to see the genes as providing the overall plan for the developmental pathways. The environment to which the individual is exposed , how well or sick you express your five pillars of a dynamic health, will modify the actual pathway.

Again, a major reason I created the Dynamism Biohack Podcast, where I train you on actualizing your heath potential.

The major function of your genes is to transmit health and the inborn resolve to remember
wellness. In the sickness paradigm, we are taught that disease-carrying genes determine our destiny.

Again, this is a false view.

If we were truly destined to live by our genes, we would suffer from the thousands of diseases experienced by our ancestors for as long as we lived, which would not be very long at all. America’s Wellness Doctor, Ed Taub says, “Disease-carrying genes are not our destiny,
because they must answer to our inner compass- our healing force.”

Their was an article in newsweek which reads, “The environment in which you grow up is as important as your DNA in determining the person you become. Certain genes can lead to vulnerability, but not inevitability.”

It used to be thought that aging is the ticking away of some internal clock to a predetermined plan laid down in your genes. Dr. Leonard Hayflick, a noted research scientist, grew human cells in tissue cultures and showed that they could subdivide to create new cells only a limited number of times.

This term is called, fibroblast replicative limit, not to get all star trek nerdy geeky, but it appeared to show that the human cell has an inbuilt timer that eventually runs down.

The evidence looked good and the study was repeated in several laboratories, but numerous scientists could not accept the aging “clock” theory.

Why?…

One problem with tissue culture experiments is that the life of the cells is dependent upon the adequacy of their nutrition. If there is even the slightest deficiency in the nutrient, the medium used to grow the cells or in the air, water or temperature, or any one of a hundred variables, then the cells will accumulate damage.

So it’s very easy to miss this and manufacture false evidence; we see this all the time- guys…

This is why rat and animal science is always an anamorphic vision of reality, like your kidddo looking thruough a kalediscope. It’s cool. It’s colorful, interesting to look at; but that’s it.

For example, since we began studying virtually most species on planet earth; the last few years were especially mind blowing. There is a term called species differentiation. In other words there are vast difference in function and development amongst a whole host of things that we are only beginning to understands.

So far, we know their are Species differences in anatomy, organ structure and function, toxin metabolism, chemical and drug absorption, and mechanisms of DNA repair— again, among myriad other differences between humans and other species that always give us inadequate or erroneous information when we attempt to apply animal data to human diseases and drug responses.

So in tissue cultures, where any such variable impacts the study.

Every successive cell division is then progressively impaired until the cells no longer replicate and dies. These cell deaths have nothing to do with an internal clock, but are caused by environmental and also where most experts dropped the ball, mechanical damage.

Keep in mind, with out movement, our cells can’t get the right mechanorecptive input to the cell and causes the cell to die. Remember, after just 30 minutes of immobility, all hell breaks thru in our biology when we are in a waking state.

So this idea that Chronological age is the same as biological age; is ridiculous.

How do we know this? There are two main lines of evidence.

First, though research shows that average levels of many physical functions show a progressive decline with age, there is also a wide variability within aged groups.

In other words, some individuals show no decline at all. We’ve all seen videos of aging people doing remarkable physical things. Meaning that chronological aging is not an inevitable cause of biological aging.

Often a person will blame a health condition, such as a bad shoulder, a bad knee, and on and on, on their age.

But if age were to blame, then it would stand to reason that both shoulders and both knees would be degenerated and not just one limb. These problems are due to cumulative uncorrected joint stress and traumas resulting in immobile joints, not to the passage of time. That’s the truth!

The second line of evidence that aging is in fact degeneration caused by abnormal stress on joints especially immobile joints is the continuing discoveries that aging process previously considered natural do not occur at all in some human populations.

Blood pressure for example, rises with age in the American population, and used to be considered an inevitable part of aging. Science knows now, however, that there are numerous populations,mostly isolated from Western society, in which the elderly have the same blood pressure as the young.

Science has known that rising blood pressure is caused by complex factors in the environment of Western society.

When members of populations migrate to western society, their blood pressure begins to rise with a few years. Almost all the experts attribute this to the western diet. While elements in the Western diet due contribute to it, it doesn’t explain what happened to life expectancy to the Okinawa’s in Japan.

OKINAWA

US military bases arrived on the Okinawa island after WW II. Most Japanese of the time sleep on the floor. NASA researchers found that the multiple times they need to stand up from these positions during a day keeps them healthy.

In the early twentieth century over 100,000 Okinawans move to Brazil and adopted the dietary habits of their new home. In spite of sharing the same genes, data from 100,000 Okinawans showed that their life expectancy was shortened by 17 years compared to their family relatives who stayed home.

But it wasn’t just the dietary changes that shocked NASA, it was the western conveniences such as sitting in chairs, instead of squatting and sitting on floors.

It was the western beds instead of the floor mats. NASA found that as western chairs and beds flooded Japan, the level of diabetes has flourished. The researcher from NASA stats, “One can almost predict the physical mobility of a society by the extent of squatting, kneeling or floor-sitting habits of it’s population.”

The largest military strike by the US ever in history was during world war II on the Okinawan island, the landscape was totally destroyed. The Okinawa’s depended on the US military base fast cheap food for survival. In fact, that continued for more than 50 years after the war.

What declined life expectancy wasn’t just the western foods, it was other lifestyle factors that decreased their daily intake of movement like squatting, kneeling and floor sitting.

NASA found the 14 squats is equivalent to a 45 min. walk!

The landscape could not grow healthy vegetation after the WWII toxins from chemicals of the bombs on the soil. But that wasn’t what did them in.

NASA researcher found that its the change of gravity compressing against cells by the stimulation of neurons from the spinal motion! It’s not just the global spinal motion that most Yoga teaches, yes that’s part of it, it is especially the segmental spinal motion that chiropractic science discovered over 100 years ago. Steve Jobs had it right when he removed all the furniture and chairs, like the Okinawa’s, and it’s time for us all to Rethink Chair!

Osteoporosis is a major health concern for elderly western women; however, elderly women in other cultures around the world do not suffer from osteoporosis and similar degenerative disorders.

In fact, new research reveals that immobile spinal joints in children past 30 minutes, caused the same adult changes plus a loss of bone density in children. Bone density is what they look at, to determine if you have osteoporosis. 30 min. of immobility, despite kids being active in contact sports, causes bone density loss. Another unrelated study on 8 year old children across the US using MRI revealed signs of early degenerative disc disease in nearly half of our kids; a disease we use to get in our mid thirties.

The problem is not just about lack of exercise. Movement transcends exercise; the exercise does not compensate for the time spent immobile. Spinal immobility is toxic to us past 30 minutes!

The truth is, TIME IS NOT THE ENEMY.

The Human Body is an amazing collection of synergistic entities controlled by our CNS. The body is designed to be totally self-functioning and self- healing.

We tend to think of healing when we suffer a cut on our arm or have broken a bone, but healing is a constant process of replacing old cells with new cells.

For example, red blood cells are replaced at a rate of about 100 billion a day, with one trillion total red blood cells in constant circulation.

The body is constantly analyzing what is happening within the body and what is happening in the environment outside the body and makes adaptive changes as necessary.

Aging can best be defined as the gradual loss of the body’s ability to respond to the environment. Aging, per se, is not just the effects of chronological time, but also the abnormal stress we place on our body, which gradually breaks it down.

The major culprit for abnormal stress, is not what you think…It’s not just the overuse issue, the repetitive injury stuff we all got taught. It is much more about the underuse issue, the joint immobility issue, if you don’t use it – you loose it issue, in our culture today.

This is caused by a number of other things including physical inactivity, chemical pollution and neurological and postural stress. But it’s the tiny spinal movement that counts most!

The human body is designed to move. The technological age of labor- saving devices and
sedentary living often detracts from the biological necessity for movement. Our inner aborigine demands it of us every day.

Disuse is deadly; many degenerative diseases plaguing Americans have a portion of their roots in sedentary, inactive and immobile lifestyles. Some research suggests as much as 50 percent of the decline in physiological functioning like– weak muscles, stiff joints, low energy levels –is actually due to disuse and not a normal consequence of age.

You may find it shocking to hear of a study in chiropractic, that one adjustment strengthens muscle to what 3 weeks of weight training can do. When you understand the biochemistry and the mechanical cueing our cells require from movement, I’m not shocked at all- I get it.

The former surgeon general recently stated that “More people die of a sedentary lifestyle than from smoking.” You may have heard the new expression that sitting is the new smoking. I’ve rewritten it, “what sitting is to the spine, cancer is to the cell.”

Without movement you could not sustain life: blood cells that don’t move cannot transport oxygen, lungs that don’t move can’t breathe, hearts that don’t move can’t pump blood, and spines that don’t move can’t create the motion required for proper joint nutrition, for the activities of daily living, or for the stimulation of the joint-brain pathways required for proper brain and body function, and on and on.

Spinal movement stimulates brain function in the same way that a windmill generates electricity for a power plant.

Did you know that half of all the nerve impulses that are sent between your brain and body in your spinal cord are for the delivery of movement stimulation to the brain.

This enables the brain to coordinate activities such as concentration and learning, emotions, motor control, and organ function. Movement charges your brain’s battery and makes you able to think better, feel better, and function better, all of which are essential to health and longevity.

Proprioception is the term used to describe the ability to sense the position, location, orientation and movement of the body and its parts, all which are important to movement and brain function.

Spinal proprioception or body positioning sensors plays a critical role in modulating protective muscular reflexes that prevent injury and facilitate healing.

Sensation is the fundamental ingredient that mediates the proprioceptive mechanism. The joints of the body act as sensory chambers, which relay proprioceptive information between specific neural pathways and the central nervous system (CNS).

These neural pathways also transport the necessary sensory motor information, which modulates muscle function.

The disruption of muscle and joint mechanoreceptors; or special sensors that detect movement and convert it to electrical chemical signal, or nerve impulse, these sensors after physical trauma results in partial deafferentation of the joint and surrounding musculature; meaning it shuts down the joint, it turns down the nerve signal so you have insufficient nerve firing, this resulting in diminished proprioception, the sensors that also turn on nerve signaling, those body positioning sensors, this increases what they term, nociception.

Just think of that as bad stress signals, that includes things like headaches and pain. But just know that increasing nociception, these bad stress signals impacts biochemistry as well. It impacts mechanotransduction to cellular pathways, even.

Again, big terms here, I know. So mechanotranduction involves any number of mechanisms by which cells convert movement sensation into electrochemical activity. In fact basic science teaches that 80% of the baseline excitatory input to the CNS is from mechanorecption or movement stimulus.

Meaning the movement is what sparks the brain, the mitochondria, the spinal cord and its related structure into life. And that when we diminish movement, even in just 30 minutes of immobile joints, all hell breaks down in our biology; as confirmed by research out of NASA.

So, this predisposes the joints to further injury and accelerates the degenerative aging process.

One specific example comes from research explaining how Mechanoreceptors in cervical facet joints, these are the joints in your neck, they provide major input regarding the position of the head in relation to the body.

With immobility induced aging, mild defects impair mechanoreceptors function. With decreased proprioception, body positioning in space is impeded and the patient becomes reliant on vision to know the location of a limb.

To compensate for the loss of proprioception in the legs, the feet are kept wider apart than usual. Steps become irregular and uneven in length. As impairment increases, the patient becomes unable to compensate. With severe loss of proprioception, the patient is unable to get up from a chair or rise after a fall without assistance.

From a chiropractic perspective, we want to get proprioception back into the joints, by stimulating it specifically with a chiropractic adjustment; this is done by hands and/or an instrument depending upon the doctor. As a result of that adjustment, we see posture return to normal.

In some cases, we may include physical therapy and exercise to help complete the healing restoration process.

But chiropractic care must be done first, to restore normal joint motion, normal proprioceptive input into the brain, reduce chronic inflammation and break up scar tissue adhesions and reducing nociception or the bad stress signals to the brain.

Once this is achieved, a chiropractor may recommend exercise to facilitate this or PT to help optimize this. But the specific chiropractic adjustments must come first, then for example; then the massage, PT or exercise is complementary to the chiropractic care; all because of the joint-brain-body dysfunction, the vertebral subluxation or dysfunctional joints are only corrected by a doctor of chiropractic.

Nobel Prize winner, Dr. Roger Sperry said that Better than 90 percent of the energy output of the brain is used in relating to the physical body in its gravitational field. The more mechanically distorted a person is the less energy available for thinking, metabolism and healing.”

You simply can never heal your body, tissue, cell or organ properly without healthy joint motion. It provides the neurospark to the brain and body for health.

So we have mechanical biological issues that drive our biochemistry and our biology that most healthcare experts have dropped the ball on. The emerging science called mechanobiology is opening this up.

Americans are living longer than ever before.
The human life expectancy is increasing and barring unforeseen circumstances, we can expect to live to
a ripe old age-that is a ripe old calendar age because our life expectancy has increased, but the quality of our lives and our health has not.
Wouldn’t you agree?
The United States continues to be one of the un-healthiest nations in the developed world. Most of us do not want to live to be 90 if the last 30 years are filled with illness, disability and dependence of family and nursing homes. We want to be able to play golf, take long walks and enjoy our families.
We want those extra years to be quality years. Longer lives do not mean much if they are not active lives. The quality of those years will largely be dictated by the choices we make in the preceding years, choices designed to stave off the aging process.

So here is the truth. We have a much better option while we are young,]]>

Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.

Frustrating isn’t it? What are we suppose to believe?

Welcome to Dynamism Biohack, my name is Dr. Matt Hammett Wellness & Nutrition Expert, Lifestyle Trainer and Movement Enthusiast. In each week I’m going share with you how to make the right nutritious choices despite conflicting expert opinions where I help you to discover how to unlock your inner aborigine or your inner greatness. Thank you for spending this time with me today, so let’s get into the training.

True wellness in the Health-Promotion Model, as far as I can discern from the literature, is nothing more than the concept of holistic health or perhaps ecosystem health based on human health sciences. The following six attributes define the Health-Promotion Model:

  1. Wellness in this model is a term used to define health as a holistic concept that incorporates body, mind, and spirit.
  2. We can view the human being as an ecosystem or a collection of cells interdependent and living in symbiosis with one another.
  3. Wellness is not some short-lived concept or some new age idea. Being well means expressing our genetic potential for health in body, mind, and spirit.
  4. The right wellness model recognizes that every cell, tissue, organ and system works synergistically to form and maintain a healthy ecosystem.
  5. Humans are genetically programmed to strive for balanced function and adaptation.
  6. Humans are genetically programmed to grow with increasing improved levels of health when given the right resources.

Health, as defined by the Health-Promotion Model, is a state of balanced function and adaptation. The following two attributes define the new concept of health:

  1. Health and homeostasis or balanced function are the same.
  2. Health and hormesis or improved adaptation are improving performance.

And that leads me to the next Dynamism Biohack: The Health Promotion Solution

Hormesis is a biological response to low doses of a stressor that enhances the ability of the body to handle that stressor. Therefore it improves performance. Unlike homeostasis (balanced function), hormesis (improved adaptation) does not return the body to a natural state. It returns it to a better than the average state, getting to the “deeper layers” of health and vitality.

Let me illustrate this with an example; let’s apply the term hormesis in exercise. In bodybuilding, when a person lifts a weight, they are placing heavy stress on a given set of muscles- a process that damages them by overload. The body reacts and adapts with an immune response and inflammation. It’s sort of interesting, how I am using these two terms as a positive when we read how “horrible” inflammation and stress is.

Keep in mind that I am introducing you to a brand new paradigm, the health restoration/promotion paradigm, through a human evolutionary biological viewpoint; in this model, these are not pathological. They are normal healthy adaptive physiological expressions occurring in response to the environment. The fact is, the body uses both to rebuild, and I will explain later for a more refined appreciation of these forces.

For the moment, just understand that rebuilding the body does not only build back what was torn down, it adapts. It grows bigger and better through an adaptive response. In bodybuilding, the muscles respond to the new challenge due to the heavier weights. The body responds to this new demand by building an infrastructure to meet the challenge. Take the challenge away for a period, and you will understand the cliché’, use it or lose it.

In this model, true wellness is a state of holistic ecosystem health. Three domains divide the new concept of wellness: physical, intellectual and emotional health. To be well and healthy you must simultaneously express balanced function and improved adaptation in all three domains.
These domains have a particular set of rules that govern them:

  1. Each domain has an equal influence on the others.
  2. Each domain is in a state of co-dependence.
  3. Each domain forms an indissoluble union.

Besides the association between balanced function, improved adaptation and health, there are some other defining concepts of the wellness paradigm. In the wellness paradigm, the body-mind-spirit is inherently intelligent; we are a self-healing and self-regulating organism (within limits of course). Health is considered the natural state. Living things are animated earth genetically or inherently programmed for health; they are programmed to strive continually for balanced function and to adapt to whatever environment they are exposed to in the most intelligent way possible on survival and healing, growth, and repair.

In the sickness/disease, paradigm illness is seen to stem from bad luck, bad germs or bad genes; humans are seen to be genetically pre-programmed for cancer, diabetes, heart disease, obesity, depression, etc. Chronic illness and disease are considered inevitable phenomenon and as the result of pathogenic germs and pathological genes expressing diseased cell, tissue, organ, and system function.

Many experts in healthcare in both the disease/sickness and Health-Promotion Model feel the germ theory is lacking. In 2012 science discovered our microbiome and the human microbiome project was born. We know that we have ten times the number of cells in our bodies in the form of thousands of different species of bacteria that live in symbiosis in and on our bodies, joints, organs, glands, and tissues. If we have seventy five trillion cells in our bodies, we have ten times that coming from bacteria living in symbiosis with us. If that is the case, how can health or illness be about germs?

QUICK SUMMARY OF THE NEW MODEL
In summary, the health restoration/promotion paradigm views humans and other living organisms as genetically programmed for balanced function and improved adaptation with the ability to grow stronger.

  1. Health is the inherently genetically programmed goal of living organisms.
  2. Illness is an adaptation to a toxic or deficient environment, not faulty genes or bad organs.
  3. The genes are expressing based on the environmental input you participate in life.
  4. Your organs can become overloaded with toxicity from our toxic and deficient foods and other lifestyle choices.

The truth is, in this new model, we understand that when we get sick (for the most part), we get sick because of how we were living before getting sick. In other words, up to a point in life when we are given a diagnosis or expressing a symptom, that is the net product of the negative stimuli of your genes. The effect goes both ways, the net product of positive stimuli to your genes cause an expression of life, vitality, and health.

Thank you for spending this time with me today, so let’s get into the training.

WHAT IS YOUR WORLDVIEW?
To this point in the book, I introduced a new concept, with which you may not have been familiar: the idea of genetics and epigenetics, the new paradigm shifts in medicine. You now understand that our genes do not change. You also know that our genome has not adapted to our new diet and lifestyle; that includes changing ecosystems designed by modern medicine, and a few new food and soil technologies disrupting the natural microbiome. Indeed, our genome is mal-adapting, mutating and is malnourished to the point we are becoming a sicker species. Genetic mutations are occurring (not adapting), not because of a natural phenomenon, they occur due to the synthetic toxic and deficient environment we live in.

Although extinction is a natural phenomenon, it occurs at a natural background rate of about one to five species per year. Scientists estimate we are now losing species at 1,000-10,000 times the background rate, with literal dozens going extinct every day. The Center for Biological Diversity reports that “one of the most striking elements of the present extinction crisis is the fact that the majority of our closest relatives— the primates— are severely endangered. Roughly 90% of primates— the group that contains monkeys, lemurs, lorids, galagos, tarsiers, and apes (as well as wild humans)— live in tropical forests, which are fast disappearing”.

The International Union for Conservation of Nature estimates that almost 50% of the world’s primate species are at risk of extinction. (Humans, by the way, are primate animals!) Overall, half the globe’s “5,491 known mammals are declining in population, and 1/5 is clearly at risk of disappearing forever, with no less than 1,131 mammals across the globe classified as endangered, threatened, or vulnerable”.

We need a changing perspective; business leader and visionary Matthew Kelly asks us, “What is your world view?” He teaches us about our unique perspective, illustrating this example in a unique way. I wanted to keep it in its original text.

Were going to get to it next in this Dynamism Biohack: Your Worldview.

Kelly states, “Today there are seven billion people on the planet, but imagine for a moment that the whole world is a village of 100 people. If we reduced the world’s population to 100 people, proportionally, this is how the world would look: 57 of those 100 people would come from Asia, 21 from Europe, nine from Africa, eight from North America, and five from South America. Fifty-one would be women and 49 would be men. Six of those 100 people would own or control more than 50% of the world’s wealth, and five of these six people would be U.S. citizens. One of those 100 people would have just been born, one would be just about to die, and only seven of those 100 people would have been to college. Thirty-three would be Christian, and 67 would be non-Christian. Eighty would be living in substandard housing. Thirty-one would be unable to read and write. Twenty-four would have no electricity. Seventy-one would not have access to the Internet. Thirty-nine of the 100 people in the village would live on less than $2 a day. One-third of the world’s population is dying from lack of bread; 1/3 of the world’s population is dying from overeating. How do you see the world?”

A simple sketch like this one challenges the way we see the world and draws us out of our own little world. Our world view constantly needs testing. Your worldview is made up of a million thoughts, ideas, beliefs, and prejudices. Your world view is unique to you, and primarily formed by your past experiences and education. Billions of dollars of advertising distort our world view. For these reasons, your worldview has many different blind spots and is imperfect. My worldview is flawed and distorted in the same way. These blind spots and distortions cause us all sorts of problems in life, especially in relationships. Our worldview illusion is the reason we need the world full of Dynamic people, teaching and living The Five Pillars of a Dynamic Health.
These are the reasons we need a simple strategic process to follow- a life plan which resembles that of our ancestors who lived well. Paul Hawken tells us that, “there is a rabbinical teaching that says if the world is ending and the Messiah arrives, first plant a tree, and then see if the story is true.” The Five Pillars of a Dynamic Health is the fruit that is grown and earned from that tree. I intend on planting this tree in our communities to inspire humanity forward away from the sickness-crisis model into the health-promotion model.

Paul Hawken also wrote that “inspiration is not garnered from the litanies of what may befall us; it resides in humanity’s willingness to restore, redress, reform, rebuild, recover, re-imagine, and reconsider.” We need a changing perspective of human life based on the natural order. We need healthcare leaders to engage Dynamic people and “restore, redress, reform, rebuild, recover, re-imagine and reconsider.”

FROM KNOWLEDGE TO ACTION

At this moment in our story, you should be able to realize I am teaching timeless strategies. These strategies worked 12,000 years ago, and they will work 12,000 more years (if humans survive that long). Weaved within the text of this book, we are shifting from an empirical rat science, sickness-crisis model, to more of a common sense approach to the health-promotion model with the help of human anthropology and some of the latest technologies in the fields of genetics. I will also note here that I will include a simple recipe list in this book to get you started. The truth is, due to the enormous amount of cookbooks available on the market; we do not need another cookbook. We need a simple book that challenges our current paradigm and opens our mind to a new set of guidelines- a way of life that has been proven to get results. That is the big idea behind this book.

FOUR TIPS TO IMPLEMENT THE EAT DRIVER

At the end of each chapter, you will notice I include some Dynamic strategies that will include some cheater points, or bite-size tidbits to remember from each of the main ideas in each chapter. Start by creating one habit – it took me a decade to learn this lesson, and if you remember nothing else from this chapter, remember this. Pick one habit to create at a time that you can do daily. Our culture pushes us to believe we can get healthier and look better in just a few weeks, but that strategy is just not true. We forget about building better habits. One example of how you can implement the Eat driver habit is to shop twice a week the way the Europeans do, picking fresh whole foods along the perimeter of the grocery store. We all know we need to eat more raw fresh vegetables. Anybody can start with that; you can do that.

1. Start small – this is worth repeating. Whatever habit you choose to implement, make it easy. It should be very small. For example, if you only like raw grapes and that is the only fruit you like, buy and eat fresh raw grapes. Whatever it is that you choose to implement, do not start too big. In the long run, if you start too big, there is almost no way you will be able to keep up a significant commitment every single day in the early going. Remember it is better to SUCK at this than to SKIP it.

2. Replacing habits with better ones – It is possible to change bad habits by replacing them with healthy habits. While it sounds simple, replacing habits is significantly tougher than creating new habits. The first goal should include eating less processed junk. To accomplish this, you need to start by creating habits of eating whole, clean food. In time, this new habit of eating will begin to crowd out most of the junk that you are eating. Dynamic people need not worry about replacing bad habits because they are focused on creating new habits. The comedian Jerry Seinfeld had a unique system in creating habits, by writing a joke every day and marking it off his calendar; he never missed more than two days. You can do that!

3. Starting place – Do not waste time and energy telling yourself you need to read more nutrition books, or finish this book before you start. The starting place does not matter; it is not about what is a right or wrong point of departure! Just start. For instance, the next time you are at the store, spend a dollar or two more on the organic or grass-fed beef, because that is more genetically congruent than the package that does not mention “organic” or “grass-fed” on it. Choosing the most natural product is a simple process; your body will not even know you made a change, and it will be a huge step in the right direction.

4. Embrace the process – Research says that we can install a habit in as little as 20 days and as long as 250+ days, depending on the challenge of the habit. Remember, this process goes through three phases. The first phase will be unbearable.

Here is a suggestion; if you chose to eat more fresh raw vegetables, you would find that there is less room for junk foods like chips. The Big Food industry made certain that you would become addicted to their foods. If you find you are eating less of them because you simply have no room, you will probably suffer from a synthetic chemical withdrawal or a detox, while you are implementing this new habit. Bear with it; the second phase will arrive soon, and you will start feeling the benefit. This is followed by the third phase where you have installed the habit, and are ready to start a new habit along The Five Pillars of a Dynamic Health lifestyle strategy continuum.

ADAPTIVE EVOLUTION GOES BOTH WAYS

Dr. John Ratey, M.D. points out a myth in his book Go Wild about evolution. Popular culture thinks that evolution is progressive and leads only one way: to better, bigger, and smarter, more complex solutions. The problem is that evolution is also adaptive toward the next best thing. She can only respond and adapt to a certain point. Complexity takes the time to assemble, but so does simplicity. What happens when the building blocks are weak?

Koalas are a fascinating example of research because they eat only one thing; eucalyptus leaves. They inhabit these trees, ubiquitous in Australia. As a result, they never leave these trees. They can simply sit sedentarily and watch the world go by, day in and day out. Sound familiar?

As Ratey state, “sedentary lifestyle was not always the life of the cute and cuddly koala. They once had a more diverse diet in their evolutionary history. The mark of this history is indicated inside their head, as their brain does not fill the entire space allotted for in their skull”. This maladaptation was the result of a narrower diet and sedentary lifestyle; their brains shrank, and evolution has not yet had time to make skull size compensate, so they have tiny brains. Most of these changes are due to one single source of food, and the fact that they are sedentary animals. If the koalas wanted to retain the bigger brain that evolution gave them, they also needed to increase their movement patterns.

Recent studies described in Discover Magazine of Human Fossils suggest the human “brain shrank more quickly than the body in near-modern times. More importantly, analysis of the genome casts doubt on the notion that modern humans are simply daintier but otherwise identical versions of our ancestors, right down to how we think and feel. Over the very period that the brain shrank, our DNA accumulated numerous adaptive mutations related to brain development and neurotransmitter systems- an indication that even as the organ got smaller, its inner workings changed. The impact of these mutations remains uncertain, but many scientists say it is plausible that our temperament or reasoning abilities shifted.”

Many paleontologists believe that the “reduction in human brain size is proof that we have tamed ourselves, just as we domesticated sheep, pigs, and cattle, all of which are smaller-brained than their wild ancestors.” The more I learn, the more baffled I become that news of our shrinking brain has been so underplayed, not just in the media but among scientists.

“It is strange, I agree,” says Christopher Stringer, a paleoanthropologist and expert on human origins at the Natural History Museum in London. “Scientists have not given the matter the attention it deserves. Many ignore it or consider it an insignificant detail.” However, the routine dismissal is not as weird as it seems at first blush, Stringer suggests, due to the issue of scaling. “As a general rule,” he says, “the more meat on your bones, the more brain you need to control massive muscle blocks.” An elephant brain, for instance, can weigh four times as much as a human’s. Scaling is also why nobody seems too surprised by the large brains of the Neanderthals, the burly hominids that died out about 30,000 years ago.

A study published in the spring of 2014 entitled, “Scientists are Alarmed by the Shrinking of the Human Brain,” confirmed what scientists have long believed to be the case – the human brain is shrinking. For more than seven million years the hominid brain has grown increasingly bigger, almost tripling in size’. The last 10,000 years after the Agricultural Revolution, the human brain has been shrinking at an alarming rate.

Chinese researchers, who looked at over 500 endocasts from the past 7,000 years, carried out the study and published it in the American Journal of Physical Anthropology. Endocasts are a mold or a shaped cavity, used to give a definite form to fluid or plastic material of “brains created from the imprints on the inside of the skull. They are an invaluable resource when studying human evolution, allowing us to track how our brain has evolved over the past few million years. The results confirmed what has long been suspected – our brains are getting smaller”.48 This rapid decrease in size is not only attributed to our diet; it also includes our sedentary lifestyle. Like the koala bear, humans need to increase their daily movement patterns if we are to fulfill the genetic nutrient requirement for movement. Understand our human genetic requirements for movement leads us to the second pillar of a Dynamic health- the Move driver.

WHAT IS YOUR WORLDVIEW?
To this point in the book, I introduced a new concept, with which you may not have been familiar: the idea of genetics and epigenetics, the new paradigm shifts in medicine. You now understand that our genes do not change. You also know that our genome has not adapted to our new diet and lifestyle; that includes changing ecosystems designed by modern medicine, and a few new food and soil technologies disrupting the natural microbiome. Indeed, our genome is mal-adapting, mutating and is malnourished to the point we are becoming a sicker species. Genetic mutations are occurring (not adapting), not because of a natural phenomenon, they occur due to the synthetic toxic and deficient environment we live in.
Although extinction is a natural phenomenon, it occurs at a natural background rate of about one to five species per year.]]>

Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.

Frustrating isn’t it? What are we suppose to believe?

Welcome to Dynamism Biohack, my name is Dr. Matt Hammett Wellness & Nutrition Expert, Lifestyle Trainer and Movement Enthusiast. In each week I’m going share with you how to make the right nutritious choices despite conflicting expert opinions where I help you to discover how to unlock your inner aborigine or your inner greatness. Thank you for spending this time with me today, so let’s get into the training.

The wellness model of health is best described and understood as a paradigm. A paradigm, or the way we view our world, can influence the smartest clinicians, scientists, mathematicians, biologists, and geneticists in the world. They can even be regarded as the most intellectual of their peer group even awarded the Nobel Prize. What you need to understand is the idea that the scientific and clinical questions they ask come from the popular viewpoint. Ergo, the design of the studies and solutions would be geared toward that paradigm or viewpoint. When most people think about wellness, they are operating out of the sickness/disease paradigm, and describe wellness from that model. In my opinion, this is the greatest mistake we have made in healthcare in the last millennium, for the simple reason we would not compare apples to oranges, because they are completely different governed by differing laws and biological mechanisms.

Currently, this error is defining the terms health and wellness from a sickness/disease perspective. Health, as defined in the Western medicine paradigm, is defined as a lack of disease or a lack of a medical diagnosis.1 Wellness, as defined in the Western medicine paradigm, is supposed to be about prevention of disease.2 The definitions trick you into believing they are about prevention, but their tools are for early detection. Let me provide an example- a mammogram is not wellness, and it is not prevention, because it does not prevent a thing; it is simply early detection.

Allow me to illustrate this point more clearly. The scientific literature which operates from the sickness/disease model does not accurately or operationally define what a healthy subject is, when they conduct studies. More often than not, they assume a subject is healthy if that subject does not have the diagnosis or a pathological state the study is addressing. I must also elaborate on a discussion on the random-control trial model. Typically, two control groups are present. Let us analyze diabetes for a moment; one group has diabetes, and the other does not. Within this model, Western medicine assumes the group without the diabetes diagnosis is a healthy subject because since that particular group is lacking a diabetes diagnosis, they label them as a healthy subject for this study. They have group 1, who has diabetes, and group 2, who does not. By this model, group 2 is considered the healthy standard for the control group in the study BECAUSE they do not have the diagnosis.

Here lies the problem, what if that so-called healthy subject has other symptoms, diseases, or even cancers not related to a diabetes diagnosis? In this model, that does not matter to them, because the subject does not have a diabetes diagnosis. In the gold standard of a random-control-trial, because the subject is lacking that particular diagnosis, the subject is considered healthy; that in my opinion is a BIG, BIG problem. What if the subject is addicted to drugs/alcohol and smokes cigarettes every day, but he or she does not have diabetes? He or she would be considered a healthy subject. “That is outrageous!” you might think… Interesting, right? How many people lie about smoking on those surveys because they are afraid their insurance premiums will skyrocket? How will that impact the data?

What you need to understand is that when a medical doctor uses the term wellness, they are operating from the sickness/disease model of sickness care. As long as they are not diabetic in this model, they are considered a healthy subject. Now, I just took you through a scientific constructive thinking process. How did you do?

At this point, you may be tempted to wander. Did you ask the obvious question that I have asked myself the last 20 years of my life? How do smart people, Nobel Prize winning people get it so wrong? That is a loaded question and not the point of this book. I am simply redefining the sickness/disease paradigm and health restoration/promotion paradigm.

Comparing these two models is like comparing apples to oranges. That is the point I am trying to make. On the other hand, I will offer a suggestion I learned from all the research and interviewing I conducted over the last decade of my practice. In the new model, the Health-Promotion Model, I would like to identify new health standards and parameters, based on the health from our ancestors who seemed to have the highest standards of health known to man. It seems reasonable, right? Why then is this considered grass-roots, and not mainstream?

It is safe to explain it this way- a scientist or a clinician that thinks outside the box (like we are together) is often criticized and punished if they try to move too far outside the boundaries. The world of science has built an eight-ounce glass (so-to-speak), and you must fit your theories and observations within that glass.

A scientist colleague who wished to remain anonymous once said that, “it is very difficult to get grant money for research in science; they only approve studies that obey these standard laws.” Clearly, even the smartest scientist on the planet should understand that the lack of a diagnosis is in no way a baseline standard for health. Once again, would it surprise you to know that most medical doctors who take the time to read my books, and understand the goals of these programs, tend to agree with me the majority of the time?

THE FIVE PILLARS OF HUMAN HEALTH MODEL

In the newer wellness model and the health promotion/restoration paradigm, I am proposing that we can define healthy humans exhibiting a state of homeostasis or balanced function. We can create benchmarks looking at specific testing on humans to understand who is physically fit, who eats a healthy diet, and who has high levels of self-esteem and life satisfaction. We can recommend the deeper layers of health by engaging them and teaching them strategies of improved lifestyle that turns on healthy gene expression. The true genius of this model lies in that it can be defined this way from ancient wild humans, our hunter-gatherer ancestors, human evolutionary biology, and human anthropology. Thanks to new technology, we have the ability to move away from 17th-century-inspired rat science, into proper exploratory and safe research with actual human beings, in pursuit of health and wellness. The study of humanity needs to be the goal of every doctor and scientist today. In the next training were goint to begin our journey with exploring the Health-Promotion Model.

Frustrating isn’t it? What are we suppose to believe?

Welcome to Dynamism Biohack, my name is Dr. Matt Hammett Wellness & Nutrition Expert, Lifestyle Trainer and Movement Enthusiast. In each week I’m going share with you how to make the right nutritious choices despite conflicting expert opinions where I help you to discover how to unlock your inner aborigine or your inner greatness. Thank you for spending this time with me today, so let’s get into the training.

 

The prevailing sickness/disease paradigm teaches a misleading concept that is shaping our modern culture toward an expression of life I call “living without the consequence.”

The cliché of this culture believes that we are sick because of predetermined genes, harmful germs, or bad luck. People who “go with the flow” tend to believe that they are born weak with bad genetics. That mentality makes them into a “caged” person, a lifelong victim and a lifelong dependent of medical drugs and surgeries.

Therefore, as long as this misconception continues to propagate within our society and cultural norm there is no reason to develop a lifestyle program if we are victim to our genes. Thus, the western scientific approach may step in and create more drugs and surgeries to override our bodies own regulatory system due to these weaknesses and errors in our genetic makeup.

Wellness expert Dr. James Chestnut tell us “they rationalize this theory and think that if genes do cause illness and if we are born genetically predetermined to get sick then we can never prevent it. Therefore doctors feel it’s a waste of time, energy, and resources to create or refer their patients to a lifestyle preventive health program. This is exactly why medicine spends no time, energy, and resources on wellness and prevention.”

This theory is what they use to rationalize biotech companies that destroy the natural nutritional content in our foods destroy our microbiomes. Chestnut explains that “this theory and rationale states that if your scientific model is that the human being in front of you is sick because of pathological cell function or because of genetic predetermination then it makes no sense to spend any of your time, money, energy or resources on preventing that illness or getting that person well. Under this model, the best chance you have to improve the quality of life, which is genetically predetermined to be sick, is to cover them up with a drug and override the system as long as you can for the remainder of their life”.

The underlying difference between the medical point of view and the chiropractic perspective can be answered with this question: “Do people who get a chronic illness and go on medication ever get well?”

After my family members’ tragic deaths, I asked myself that question. These were three terrible deaths that could have been prevented; this didn’t need to happen. While I sifted through the science, seriously considering leaving chiropractic and entering medical school, I discovered in science that’s it is not even their argument. It is not their argument; they do not even pretend to believe that a person with chronic illness gets better with medication. The literature is very clear, which even has a specific term called palliative care, which means, “to cover up, relieving pain without dealing with the cause of the condition.”

The prevailing western sickness/disease culture spends most of their resources convincing us that we are born genetically weak and sick. They have convinced the popular culture that your best chance is to cover up (blame it and tame it with a drug) and to override your body’s abilities since they mistakenly theorize that you and I are inherently incapable of regulating ourselves.

Chiropractors recognize the fact that we are self-healing and self-regulating. God is not capable of making mistakes, spontaneous mutations, and genetic defects. However, our free will undoubtedly allow us to make terrible choices that have horrific consequences down multiple generations. These concepts are espoused by one profession only: chiropractic; that is why I am so proud to be a chiropractor, and why we have such ability to save lives. Believe me, the purpose of this book is to verify that last statement, that chiropractic care is the answer to our “disease of civilization.” Although these things are espoused by chiropractic, above all else we did not create these ideas. Chiropractic simply has been the only health care profession that recognizes them, having withstood the onslaught from Rockefeller in the Flexner Report. We have refused to adapt into the prescriptions of drugs, the way the osteopathic profession did, as I will explain in a moment.

We need to stop blaming our genes or lack of intelligence for our problems and start taking responsibility. Did it ever occur to you that perhaps this is the reason behind the rise of huge biotech food companies, which are chemical companies? Pharmaceutical companies got so powerful, even immune to the law, as a result! The worst thing that can happen to a system which depends on customers who have no power and live in total dependence is for them to become empowered, inspired by the idea that they can take responsibility for their health and educated in how to eat, move, think, connect and cope so we can leave this planet well. That was the way our ancestors lived, how our genes are programmed to express health and that is how we need to express our genes. This book is dedicated to all of the billions of peoples who have died, misguided by that system, and to the future generations. You do have the power to change your health outcome, and we know through science exactly how to do it. That is empowerment. That is inspiration. That is New Life.

Since you are listening to this training, chances are you have watched or read some of the documentaries on food, nutrition, biotech companies and GMO’s. But have you heard of the Flexner Report and its influence over natural medicine?

THE STANDARDIZATION OF MEDICINE

The Flexner Report is a book-length study of medical education in the United States and Canada, written by the professional educator Abraham Flexner and published in 1910 by the Carnegie Foundation. The Flexner Report called on American medical schools to enact so-called higher admission and graduation standards and to adhere strictly to the protocols of so-called mainstream science in their teaching and research. This mainstream science mostly theoretical rat, mice, and laboratory research protocols were funded primarily by Rockefeller and benefited the pharmaceutical companies.

A great deal of American medical schools fell short of the standard advocated in the Flexner Report, and after its publication, nearly half of such schools merged or were closed outright. The Report also concluded that there were too many medical schools in the United States of America and that too many doctors were being trained. A repercussion of the Flexner Report, resulting from the closure of university training, was a reversion of American universities to male-only admittance programs to accommodate a smaller admission pool.

Since classical antiquity, science as a type of knowledge has been closely linked to philosophy. In the early modern period the words “science” and “philosophy of nature” were sometimes used interchangeably. By the 17th century, natural philosophy (which is today called “natural science”) was considered a separate branch of philosophy.

In modern usage, “science” most often refers to a way of pursuing knowledge, not only the knowledge itself. It is also often restricted to those branches of study that seek to explain the phenomena of the material universe. In the 17th and 18th centuries, scientists increasingly sought to formulate knowledge regarding laws of nature such as Newton’s laws of motion. And over the course of the 19th century, the word “science” became increasingly associated with the scientific method itself, as a disciplined way to study the natural world, including physics, chemistry, geology and biology. It is in the 19th century also that the term scientist was created by the naturalist-theologian William Whewell to distinguish those who sought knowledge on nature from those who sought other types of knowledge.

In 1904 the AMA established the Council on Medical Education (CME) whose objective was to restructure American medical education. At its first annual meeting, the CME adopted two standards: one laid down the minimum prior education required for admission to a medical school; the other defined a medical education as consisting of two years training in human anatomy and physiology followed by two years of clinical work in a teaching hospital. In 1908, the CME asked the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching to survey American medical education, so as to promote the CME’s reformist agenda and hasten the elimination of medical schools that failed to meet the CME’s Standards. The president of the Carnegie Foundation, Henry Pritchett, a staunch advocate of medical school reform, chose Abraham Flexner to conduct the survey. Flexner was not a physician, scientist, or a medical educator.

At that time, the 155 medical schools in North America differed greatly in their curricula, methods of assessment, and requirements for admission and graduation. Flexner visited all 155 schools and generalized about them as follows: “Each day the students were subjected to interminable lectures and recitations. The Report became notorious for its harsh description of certain establishments, for example describing Chicago’s 14 medical schools as “disgraces to the State whose laws permit its existence… indescribably foul… the plague spot of the nation.”

Flexner carefully examined the situation. Using the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine as the ideal, he issued the following recommendations:

1. Reduce the number of medical schools (from 155 to 31) and poorly trained physicians;
2. Increase the prerequisites to enter medical training;
3. Train physicians to practice in a scientific manner and engage medical faculty in research;
4. Give medical schools control of clinical instruction in hospitals
5. Strengthen state regulation of medical licensure

By 1920, 92% of U.S. medical schools required this of applicants. As a consequence of the report, each state branch of the American Medical Association has oversight over the conventional medical schools located within the state.1 As a result, the cost of health care has vastly increased, and medicine in the US and Canada has become a highly paid and well-respected profession.

When Flexner researched his report, “modern” medicine faced vigorous competition from several quarters, including osteopathic medicine, chiropractic medicine, eclectic medicine, naturopathy, and homeopathy. Flexner openly doubted the scientific validity of all forms of medicine other than that based on scientific research (rat research), deeming any approach to medicine that did not advocate the use of treatments such as vaccines to prevent and cure illness as tantamount to quackery and charlatanism. Medical schools that offered training in various disciplines including eclectic medicine, physiomedicalism, naturopathy, and homeopathy, were given two choices: they were told to drop these courses from their curriculum, or lose their accreditation and underwriting support. A few schools resisted for a time, but eventually, all complied with the Report or shut their doors.

Although almost all the alternative medical schools listed in Flexner’s report were closed, the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) was able to bring some osteopathic medical schools into compliance with Flexner’s recommendations and produce an evidence-based practice. The curricula of DO- and MD-awarding medical schools are now nearly identical, the chief difference being the additional instruction in osteopathic schools of osteopathic manipulative medicine.

This dramatic convergence of osteopathic and biomedical training demonstrates the sweeping effect of the Flexner Report, not only in the closure of inadequate schools but also in the standardization of the curricula of surviving schools.

The chiropractic profession survived and stood alone against this new philosophy of standardized medicine. Many chiropractors went to jail to fight for the right of the people to a natural approach to healthcare. As a result, over 50% of Americans visit a Doctor of Chiropractic, and its growing popularity is on the rise. We ultimately have the power to change our health outcome; now let us explore the How to…

The prevailing sickness/disease paradigm teaches a misleading concept that is shaping our modern culture toward an expression of life I call “living without the consequence.”
The cliché of this culture believes that we are sick because of predetermined genes, harmful germs, or bad luck. People who “go with the flow” tend to believe that they are born weak with bad genetics. That mentality makes them into a “caged” person, a lifelong victim and a lifelong dependent of medical drugs and surgeries.
Therefore, as long as this misconception continues to propagate within our society and cultural norm there is no reason to develop a lifestyle program if we are victim to our genes. Thus, the western scientific approach may step in and create more drugs and surgeries to override our bodies own regulatory system due to these weaknesses and errors in our genetic makeup.

Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.

Frustrating isn’t it? What are we suppose to believe?

Welcome to Dynamism Biohack, my name is Dr. Matt Hammett Wellness & Nutrition Expert, Lifestyle Trainer and Movement Enthusiast. In each week I’m going share with you how to make the right nutritious choices despite conflicting expert opinions where I help you to discover how to unlock your inner aborigine or your inner greatness. Thank you for spending this time with me today, so let’s get into the training.

IN THE MOUNDS OF ALL THE RESEARCH so far in our story, we have learned that the main reason behind misunderstanding in science is rat science, conducted in a vacuum with a linear reductionist strategy. I have also made it very clear that I am in no way implying that rat science and other animal studies are not useful; we have made significant advances in science because of them.

But THE RATIONALE FOR SCIENCE is simple: IS IT HUMAN?
Dynamic people are objective in their rationale toward science. It may be true that some highly paid science writer could write several books, explaining how rats are similar to humans. The truth is simple; none of that matter, for humans are not rats. Therefore the extrapolation of data from rats and animal studies are far from perfect and are in no way the best predictors for human anatomy and physiology. The best predictors for humans are human. While science is debating all the rat science and other animal studies, there is a heated debate on the other side of the coin in health-promotion. It regards what humans should eat.

And that leads me to Dynamsim Biohack: the human diet.

Let me point out this one fact before I begin this. We have hunter-gatherers living today with between four and 10 times the recommended daily allowances (RDA’s) of vitamins and minerals than industrialized humans (you and me). They also have physiques that match that of an NBA all-star player. We have hunter-gatherers who cannot read; who know nothing of what a vitamin is, have never read a cookbook and cannot even write a note, exhibiting these impressive levels of health. They have improved health measures in all respects compared to us, without ever taking a medication from Big Pharma, a vaccination, or a nutraceutical product.

In other words, we have examples of humanity that have never been medicalized by modern medicine and are healthier than us?

Therefore, may I hypothesize that a rational approach that attempts to match the lifestyle habits of our ancestors (within reason of course) would yield these results for all of humanity? May I add something else gently?

That approach can be so simple, that you need not even know how to read or write to follow it.

Now, when we get into the Eat driver of a Dynamic health, we tend to get all technical. I want you to know that it can be as easy for you, as it is for a modern hunter-gatherer, who never eats processed foods, chemical additives, pesticides, herbicides, white flour, white sugar, refined carbohydrates and so forth.

By the way, the point of this training is to show you how easy and simple this process is, once you get desensitized from all the addictive chemicals in the foods you eat.

They cause you to be cranky and even get stressed out while your listening to this. The truth is, Big Food intentionally puts in major chemicals, designed to cause you to desire more of that processed artificial food. They are so powerful that most people suffer a withdrawal (similar to a cocaine addict during a drug recovery program).

To satisfy the debate about healthy eating and the human diet, we need to cover the discussion of Vegan versus Paleo.

The Eat driver of a dynamic health is more about the psychology of eating, so I will only be touching these concepts at the surface. Again, the point of this training is simplicity.

At any rate, I am going to cover some of the benefits and cons of going Paleo or Vegan. I think that some of these answers are going to surprise and enlighten you. You might find that one diet or the other works for you; perhaps you will find one that is a mix of the two.

Essentially, though, Dynamic people keep it simple. I am beginning with the paleo diet, one of the most popular diets in CrossFit circles and growing across the country. The paleo diet is modeled after what our ancient ancestors would have eaten thousands upon thousands of years ago. Again, try not to get caught up in the technical stuff like the term “Paleo,” because of some of its background and the things it is suggesting.

The big positive with paleo is that you end up consuming a lot of wild-caught meats that are high in omega fats. You get your fruits, and vegetables, in a manner that makes it not so difficult! For that reason, the paleo diet can be great.

The con with the paleo diet is that it tends to make someone consume too much meat, as well as some toxic animal substances. Additionally, some paleo experts do not stress organic on that diet; I have known people on the paleo diet whose diets consisted of consuming conventional butter and fried bacon, instead of organic butter and grass-fed meats.

However, the paleo diet has major benefits. Regarding following that hunter-gatherer lifestyle, you are getting more minerals, more omega- fats, more protein and healthier fats overall in your diet.

There are versions of the paleo diet; if you follow it in the right way, it has been shown to help improve autoimmune illness, support weight loss and reverse most chronic diseases.

You just need to be careful not to consume too many conventional animal products; in essence, grain-fed animal product. The grain-fed animal product is a genetically incongruent food; animals do not eat them in the wild. Like humans, their DNA never adapted and evolved to eat them. Another issue is the recommendation of shrimp and pork. From the research that I have seen, both from ancient texts, as well as modern day science, pork carries parasites; shrimp are bottom feeders. In fact, according to the Water Watch Survey, it has been found that shrimp were by far the most toxic of all animals of the sea. They were way more toxic than tilapia, way more toxic than catfish, and even more so when compared with much of the farm fish today. Shrimp was the worst.

Dynamic people want to stress certified organic and have to modify their diets due to the newer toxins and polluted species of food that are reported each year.

The vegan diet is by no means any safer from the toxic environment, especially when we get into the GMO revolution. Certified organic veggies reap enormous benefits of more enzymes, vitamins, and minerals in your diet. A vegan diet, or doing a raw plant-based diet, is beneficial for improving energy levels, alkalizing your body, reversing certain types of disease, and beating certain types of cancer. Of course, this assumes you can refrain from GMO product, as many experts (even some whole countries) have begun suppressing GMO crops and products from their land.

There is another vegan diet issue even if you follow it with certified organic, non-GMO product. The problem is following a vegan diet long term.

If you stay on that diet the majority of your life, you cannot get enough B vitamins. Vegans also have difficulty getting the proper amount of amino acids, zinc, vitamin D and other nutrients. So most vegans realize this, but they tend to be very deficient in B-vitamins and the right type of amino acids; yes, you can address those deficiencies by taking a good quality vitamin B-complex supplement and protein powders. Again, following a straight vegan diet is going to leave you with nutritional deficiencies at the least, and toxic GMO accumulation at the most.

If you recall, the primary focus of this training is about understanding the epigenetic switches that turn on and off due to lifestyle changes Dynamic people get to choose every day consciously.

It is not genetic. It is epigenetic; it is the environment. It is how well you express your Five Pillars of a Dynamic Health. Therefore, there are only two reasons we would express sick genes in this newer model. It would be an accumulation of toxins and/or deficiencies from our five drivers of health promotion. In the case of the Eat driver, long-term vegans promote deficiencies that we know about in science. It is also difficult to find Non-GMO veggies all the time, so we are not furthering the toxins in our biology.

For that reason, I suggest following a modified version of the paleo diet regime before the vegan diet. Now, different types of vegetarian diets add in foods like wild-caught fish, fresh farm eggs, and raw organic dairy products. Those types of vegetarian diets can be followed, and one can be healthy with fewer deficiencies. Again, there are some benefits to both.

There are some vegans that live to be over 100 years old and have addressed their deficiencies. Their digestion system was healthy enough that it helped produce B-vitamins for them, and they were able to address the amino acid issues.

What about the GMO revolution that was born in the mid-1990s? This issue is beyond the scope of this book. However, Dynamic people need to be aware of this movement, and which food products are impacted the most by this revolution.

Keep in mind; these are things that our DNA has never been exposed to, and we have no idea what long-term consequences will arise. You need to understand that how we are growing and preparing food differs from the 100-year-old people living on the paleo or vegans’ lifestyles because they were not exposed to the same pollutants and food technologies that we are today.

That last statement is worth its weight in gold. Unfortunately, research performed in nutrition is invalid from a non-GMO perspective, because our landscape across veggies to fruit to animals eating them and humans have been exposed to a new set of rules in ecology that never existed before.

The advent of technologies like gene-hybridization and GMOs makes our food completely different. These food technologies are another reason we need to choose certified organic and non-GMO foods, protecting our rights as Americans to our easy access to them.

A DIET FOR THE AUTO-IMMUNE
Another diet is following more of a traditional diet or a GAPS diet. I think a traditional diet, which is really what our ancestors ate, is more about consuming grass-fed, dairy-like kefir. You end up getting a lot of vegetables and wild meats, this way.

Organizations like the Weston A. Price Foundation go to great lengths to promote these dietary measures; it is often the diet I recommend to my autoimmune patients, and they love it.

The GAPS diet was designed with the sickness-crisis model in mind, to promote and heal intestinal function. The diet includes a specially designed protocol of food consumption to be followed carefully. It has many different stages for specific reasons. At each stage, specific types of foods and supplements are recommended, such as meat broth, ferments, and probiotics. You also need to avoid certain foods, especially grains, due to their inflammatory states.

When your body is ready, you move on to the next stage of the diet. That could take a couple of weeks to a few months depending on many factors. At some point after you reach the maintenance stage at the end of the diet. That part of the diet closely resembles paleo because it is a grain-free diet, emphasizing whole foods, and it restricts most industrially processed foods; those with pesticides, herbicides, and preservatives are a huge no-no. At the same time, it is different from paleo; it allows legumes and some dairy (like certain cheeses), although many paleo people still include cheese in their diet.

If your gut is in dreadful shape or you are suffering from some autoimmune reaction, and it cannot be healed by the paleo diet alone, the GAPS diet may work wonders for you. Many people go through GAPS for healing while they are advancing from the sickness-crisis model toward the health-promotion model, then switch to a paleo diet for the remainder of their lifetime wellness promotion. The two diets also combine very well.

Dr. Natasha Campbell founded the GAPS diet, and it is very effective in treating all sorts of sickness-crisis conditions, such as learning disorders like ADHD, sensory processing disorders, and autism. It is ideal for healing leaky gut, and other kinds of issues that are neurological or immune-related in nature.

This diet does not have to be that difficult to be effective. In fact, I think the GAPS diet can be simple after you learn the principles and a few recipes along the way. Specific protocol of each of these diets is beyond the scope of this training.

Essentially, the GAPS diet is a diet that is easy to digest; a grain-free diet high in amino acids and healthy fatty acids, and very low in sugar and carbohydrates. A significant benefit of this diet is the consumption of bone broth. Our ancestors would have consumed bone broth; it is packed with amazing nutrients, especially amino acids. The amino acids proline, arginine, glycine, and glutamine are abundant in bone broth. L-proline is the amino acid that helps tighten up your sagging skin as you age, as well as heal gut tissue. It also helps in repairing leaky gut, which is the root cause of all autoimmune disease today, and food allergies. If you want to overcome or heal from any conditions, we know all disease begins in the gut. you have got to heal the leaky gut. When it comes to the GAPS diet, one of the best things you can do is consume bone broth.

BONE BROTH
Making bone broth is relatively easy! All you have to do is take the necks, backs or feet of chickens, put them in a crock pot, and let them cook for hours in a crock pot. Add a tablespoon or two of apple cider vinegar, which will start to pull out those amino acids in the liquid. You then discard the tissues, just keeping the liquid. Voila, chicken broth! You can do the same thing with beef bones, which can also be high in proline. Again, that is the first thing you want to do; make some broth.

The broth is also high in glycine, which helps support liver detoxification, crucial to healing and balancing the immune system. Also, L-glutamine is found in broth, which has been shown to help repair a damaged intestinal lining. After that you start out with organic meat; you will have your bone broth, whether it might be chicken or beef broth. Then you throw in some organic meat, usually chicken or beef; that protein is easy to digest and does not affect the immune system. Add your vegetables next, whether they are broccoli, cauliflower, or cabbage. My favorite chicken vegetable soup includes celery, carrots, and onions, but any vegetable is fine to add in there.

If you are in stage one of the GAPS diet, you will, by and large, consume bone broth, meat and vegetables, slow-cooked over the period of 24 hours, or at least 8 hours. This is going to be the main meal; try and eat that for as many meals as possible.

After a few weeks, typically two weeks on that stage one of GAPS diet, other things will get added in, like a little bit of sauerkraut juice or some probiotic-rich foods. It might be a couple of tablespoons of sauerkraut juice; it might be a couple of tablespoons of a goat’s milk kefir or a 24-hour fermented homemade yogurt. Probiotic-rich foods will get added at some point, too, as well as some healthy fats such as avocados, egg yolks, coconut oil, olive oil or ghee. Those are five of the healthiest fats that are permitted for phase two of the GAPS diet. Over time, you can add in cooked fruit and some herbs as well; even some raw vegetables later on. Nevertheless, the GAPS diet consists mostly of these foods:

1. Bone broth
2. Organic grass-fed meat
3. Organic vegetables
4. Fruit
5. Nut butter like a sprouted almond butter, and then also fermented dairy products like kefir or a yogurt.

Once again, the GAPS diet allows someone with a diagnosis or sickness to begin healing their gut more focused than the paleo diet alone. GAPS diet can help you recover from autoimmune disease, leaky gut, and neurological conditions, even helping support the healing of things like ADHD and Alzheimer’s. For most people, after complete gut restoration is achieved, they move away from the sickness-crisis model into the health-promotion model by transferring back to a paleo approach. The paleo approach becomes their lifetime health-promotion stage of their new wellness lifestyle.

Of course a transition from gaps into paleo can be done with a ketogenic diet. This is especially good if you are treating diabetes, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and fight cancer. The ketogenic diet is also very powerful for weight loss. It works well transitioning into a lifetime Approach of eating by finishing it with the paleo approach. Remember, we’re not really that interested in the last 100,000 years of change, if we just focus on the last 100 years of change, we will be doing really well. Keep the concept simple.

Lighten up, move better, and live fuller.

IN THE MOUNDS OF ALL THE RESEARCH so far in our story, we have learned that the main reason behind misunderstanding in science is rat science, conducted in a vacuum with a linear reductionist strategy. I have also made it very clear that I am in no way implying that rat science and other animal studies are not useful; we have made significant advances in science because of them.
But THE RATIONALE FOR SCIENCE is simple: IS IT HUMAN?
Dynamic people are objective in their rationale toward science. It may be true that some highly paid science writer could write several books, explaining how rats are similar to humans. The truth is simple; none of that matter, for humans are not rats. Therefore the extrapolation of data from rats and animal studies are far from ...]]>

Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.

Frustrating isn’t it? What are we suppose to believe?

WE KNOW FOR A FACT THAT THE LOW-FAT DIET is killing us; it is the very reason my mother is not with us today. The surprising truth about fat and heart disease, as discovered by various researchers, found that doubling or even tripling saturated fat in your diet has no impact on saturated fats in your blood.

As you read this, you are probably thinking about the studies that confirm that blood levels of saturated fat are significantly correlated with the development of type-II diabetes and heart disease. There is one problem; these fats in the blood are not coming from the fat you eat. They are provided by the liver in response to the carbohydrates in your diet. In other words, carbohydrates are the true culprits; they spike your blood levels of saturated fats. In the New England Journal of Medicine in 2013, there were two massive studies on low versus high-fat diet. Now the study was biased, as they wanted to show that a low-fat diet was the answer and that the high-fat diet was the culprit for heart disease.

Dynamic people understand that when a Big Pharma company or special interest groups like the low fat industry, grain, and dairy lobbies conduct a study, the study could be biased. In this case, during the study, the low-fat diet was not leading to the benefits they had hoped, and the high-fat diet approach was so much better they pulled both studies. Once again, the prevailing consensus in the scientific community led us to believe that the saturated fat was the root cause of disease, that is not what the research shows. The reason we have been led to believe this, besides media manipulation and corruption for gain by special interest groups, was because people who followed the high-fat diets ate fewer vegetables, less fiber, more sugar, and more refined and processed foods.

That leads me to Dynamism Biohack: Eat Fat & Get Thin.

The truth is, as it turns out in science, saturated fats are a problem only in the face of a high carbohydrate intake, low fiber, and omega-3-deficient diet. Therefore, do not increase your saturated fats unless you also decrease your processed carbohydrate intake and add more fiber from plants and get more omega three fatty acids or healthy fats. Current evidence does not support cardiovascular guidelines that encourage high consumption of polyunsaturated fatty acids and low consumption of total saturated fats.

This turns things upside down, right? Now, we need to remember a few key points:

• Saturated fats (palmitic acid and stearic acid) in your blood that cause heart attacks come from eating sugar and carbs, not fat.
• Saturated fats (margaric acid) that come from dairy and butter show a reduced risk of heart disease.
• Omega-6 fats from vegetable oils show no benefit and may increase the risk of heart attacks.
• Omega-6 fats from poultry, eggs, and beef (arachidonic acid) seem to be protective.
• Omega-3 fats from fish are the most protective.

The conclusion? As we discussed earlier, we need to avoid most vegetable oils. We need to eat more butter, fish, chicken, eggs, and grass-fed meat. We need to stay away from sugar and carbohydrates. Now I know why my mother who followed the wrong advice (low-fat, high carbohydrate diet) is not here with us today.

A DEEPER LOOK AT GOOD FATS VERSUS BAD FATS

Which fats are good for us and which are bad? First, we have to highlight the one thing: everyone agrees on trans fats. Do not eat anything with “partially hydrogenated oil” in it. Now we can take a quick look at the good fats:

Extra virgin olive oil. “Liquid gold” is what Dr. Mark Hyman calls it. Did you know oil is extracted from olives in multiple pressings? Yep, apparently the first squeeze is the best, so you want “extra virgin” oil. The organic, cold pressed is best and store it somewhere dark and cool not by the stove.

Extra virgin coconut oil. Coconut oil (and MCT oil) are super healthy. Great for cooking and Dr. Hyman calls MCT oil “super fuel for your cells.”

Fats from whole foods like avocados, nuts, and seeds. Yum. Tip: Eat the nuts and seeds raw, and soak them overnight to help remove some anti-nutrients.

The bad fats are going to be vegetable oils: corn oil, soybean oil, canola oil, safflower oil, and sunflower oil. Vegetable oils were almost unknown in the food supply at the turn of the 20th century. As for now, America consumes 18 BILLION pounds of soybean oil per year! Yep. A whopping 20% of our calories come from soybean oil. Soybean oil is in almost everything, and it is 50% linoleic acid (an inflammatory omega-6 fat). Our over consumption of vegetable oils, which are high in omega-6 and are in basically all processed foods, contributes to an imbalance in our omega-3 to omega-6 ratio. This imbalance contributes to inflammation, which is the cause of a bunch of sickness-crisis issues. Addressing this is super important, and eliminating veggie oils while replacing them with the good fats is a wise step.

THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE EVIL FATS

The seventh facet of the Eat driver is about fats: The Good, The Bad, and The Evil. Time for an oil change! Of course, the unambiguous evil here is trans fats.

Evil Fat

At one point food scientists thought hydrogenated margarine was as high of an invention as sliced bread. They taught us that butter was bad because of all the fat. They decided to create something artificial. Eventually, trans fats got banned, but you will find partially hydrogenated oils in way more products than you think. Look in your kitchen cabinet and peek around; see if you see anything that says partially hydrogenated anything!

If you find it in your kitchen, throw it away- again, we have unambiguous toxins present! No one is going to debate this, though some people will argue whether you should have a lot of fat or no fat, but no one is going to recommend more partially hydrogenated fats in your diet. Not a smart thing.

Bad Fat

Bad fat consists of the vegetable and seed oils. They are everywhere, and again we take it for granted, but seed oil is vegetable oil. Vegetable oil sounds good for you, so we all should increase our intake of vegetables as a result, right? Well, vegetable oil is actually seed oils in the form of soybean, safflower, corn oil, and canola oil, etc. It did not exist pre-industrial revolution. In comparison, we have been squeezing olives for thousands of years, and that is where you would find part of our healthy fat.

However, vegetable and seed oils are not good. These oils that didn’t exist 150 years ago are now 20% of our total calories consumed. This is an absolutely insane number!! Even at Whole Foods, if you pick up a little jar of salad dressing, the first ingredient is usually soybean oil. Twenty percent of our total calorie consumption is of a product that did not exist 150 years ago. This is definitely not smart, and the reason behind it is not smart. That would be awesome if it were good for us, but it really is not! The primary reason we want to avoid consuming these vegetable oils is the ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids is around 10:1 to 20:1. We want to consume oils with healthy ratios of omega-6: omega-3 around 1:1 to 4:1 like extra-virgin olive oil or coconut oil and others.

Now, we have essential fatty acids that we need to live. We also have essential amino acids, and these are essential fats and essential proteins. Interestingly enough, there are no essential carbs, but there are essential fatty acids and essential amino acids. The two primary essential fatty acids are Omega-3 and Omega-6. In vegetable oils, the ratio between the Omega-6 and the Omega-3 is way off. Omega-3s are anti-inflammatory. They are both important, but we are getting too much of the Omega-6, which is more inflammatory. You want to have a certain level of inflammation in your body to deal with things that need to be addressed like bacteria and viruses.

A great author named Christopher McDougall, who wrote a fantastic book called Natural Born Heroes, discusses the fact that this ratio has gotten warped; in essence, you want a fire burning nice and slow in your house, but not for the fire to burn the whole house down. According to McDougall, in ancient times, the ratio between Omega-6 and Omega-3 was something like one to one. In modern days, the ratio is more like 16 Omega-6 to one Omega-3, an imbalance which is a bad idea. It is driven in large part by our over-consumption of these vegetable oils, and powered by the over-consumption of factory farmed animals; animal protein has a high ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6. However, when you feed animals in factory farms unnatural grains, you warp the constitution of their Omega-6 to Omega-3 balance. We are getting even more of the Omega-6 that we should not have, by eating factory farmed animals.

Dr. David Perlmutter, one of the world’s leading neurologists and nutritionists, is board-certified in both nutrition and neuroscience. He talks about how inflammatory vegetable oils are. Many of my patients tell me that if they eat vegetable oils, they can feel inflammation in their body; some feel it in their nose immediately. For some, these oils can be a toxic personal trigger. For others, they might not trigger a response; that goes back into our bio-individuality, but we want to experiment and test with it- an idea we are coming too soon. For the moment, get rid of your vegetable and seed oils. How do we deal with the bad oils? Time for an oil change. This leads us to our good fats and the idea that fats are good.

Mark Hyman has been vegetarian, he has been vegan, and he has been everything in between; he integrates all these ideas in a comprehensive way, in his book Eat Fat, Get Thin. He is a lot less prone to the cherry-picking ideologies that some people get locked into and get fixated on. Hyman says the number one thing we can do to boost our health is to increase our fat intake. Period. This may be a strong statement, but he and experts like Dr. David Ludwig point out that the low-fat fad, postulated by our government over the last forty years, failed. As we eliminated fat, we demonized fat. Then, we bought into all these refined carbohydrates, and that is when the obesity crisis occurred. The number one ingredient used to replace fat in low fat products is sugar. This idea is part of a longer conversation, but the fat in itself is not making us fat. It is those refined carbohydrates, which our bodies do not know how to process, flipping those metabolic switches. As a result, we increase insulin, and the fat storage hormone comes on.

Good Fat

Olive oil… Dr. Mark Hyman calls it liquid gold. Olive oil has been pressed for thousands of years. When looking for it, you want to get extra virgin olive oil. I never knew, but extra virgin means it comes from the first press. That’s the first process and it produces extra virgin olive oil.

It can then be pressed and pressed and pressed and pressed and pressed again- that becomes plain olive oil, not extra virgin. The nutrient composition of extra virgin is different than the composition in the other presses; it contains more of what we need. Quality over quantity is how the old saying goes; you want to take your resources and invest in the higher quality. Extra virgin olive oil should be stored in a cool, dark place. Storing it by the oven is by no means a smart idea. It will make it turn rancid faster than you want, so move it to a cooler dark place.

On the other hand, coconut oil has some amazing properties, as does MCT oil, another popular and potent oil. Avocados also provide good fats, in general, and as an oil. If you feel so inspired, your mission is to go through your kitchen and throw away anything that has partially hydrogenated oil. Then, notice next time you are in the market how many things have partially hydrogenated in them; quit putting those into your shopping cart and bringing them home.

Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.

Frustrating isn’t it? What are we suppose to believe?

Welcome to Dynamism Biohack, my name is Dr. Matt Hammett Wellness & Nutrition Expert, Lifestyle Trainer and Movement Enthusiast. In each week I’m going share with you how to make the right nutritious choices despite conflicting expert opinions where I help you to discover how to unlock your inner aborigine or your inner greatness. Thank you for spending this time with me today, so let’s get into the training.

YOUR SECOND BRAIN

Our eighth facet of the Eat driver is brain number two, your second brain. We have got brain number one up in your skull and brain number two, surprisingly down in your gut. Did you know that your gut has 100 million neurons in it? Neurons, or brain cells, are in your gut. It makes no sense, right? But they are there… Crazy. Did you know that your gut produces up to 90% of your serotonin?

Dr. Junger talks about the fact that when he was going to a young doctor and eating the Western diet, he was on all kinds of medications, and he was feeling all kinds of issues including depression. He went to a psychiatrist who said well, you are not producing enough serotonin; he pointed to his brain. Dr. Junger says in hindsight, “He should have pointed to my gut,” because that is where the bulk of your serotonin is produced.

Serotonin is the happiness chemical which helps modulate our well-being and our sense of happiness. That is why many mistakenly think it is produced in the brain. Guess what, though? It is actually produced in the gut- up to 90%. Happiness, and everything else we are discussing, really starts at the end of your fork. Your second brain is down in your gut, and you want to pay attention to that.

And that leads me to Dynamism Biohack: Your 2nd Brain

YOUR MICROBIOME

Your microbiome is comprised of the little creatures that are living in your gut. Perlmutter shares a fascinating story about it in his book, Brain Maker. He cites an experiment that was published in 2013’s edition of Gastroenterology, out of UCLA. It demonstrated much of the first evidence that friendly bacteria consumed from food can affect brain function in humans. The study showed how small gut bacteria changes could affect our perceptions in the brain. In the experiment, they used a functional MRI scan (fMRI). Rather than looking at the structures of the brain, fMRI evaluates brain activity, so that researchers can determine which areas of the brain are active and how active they are at any particular time. When neurologists observe such activity, they technically call it “excitability” or “lighting up”—how the brain responds to stimuli or changes in the environment. The fMRI in this study showed the nucleus accumbens light up. In one group, the reward center was lighting up when they consumed the ultra-processed fast acting carbs- not what you want because this creates addiction cravings to unhealthy fake foods. In this case, they changed one thing in their diet. They gave one group fermented foods and the other group unfermented foods because fermented foods have tons of healthy bacteria in them. In this particular experiment, they used yogurt. They measured activity before and after they consume this product for a certain period of time. Researchers found out that consuming fermented food in a matter of weeks led to a decreased level of excitability in their brain.

In other words, as Perlmutter put it, “the fact that changes in our gut affect our brain’s response to negative activity or emotionally stirring images is just mind-boggling.”

Canadian researchers stated the following: “Overall, dietary changes could explain 57% of the total structural variation in gut microbiota, whereas changes in genetics accounted for no more than 12%.”

This indicates that diet has a dominating role in shaping gut microbiota, and changing key populations may transform healthy gut microbiota into a disease-inducing entity.’

It is crazy to think that fermented food- something as simple as sauerkraut, yogurt, and pickles and other fermented food on a regular basis- feeds and nourishes our microbiome in a healthy way. Your second brain exists in your gut, has over 100 million neurons, and 90% of the serotonin produced in your body comes from your gut. Your gut is 70-80% of your immune system; guard it well.

THE TRIAD OF EATING
The Triad of Eating is to reboot, kitchen detox, and follow your food rules. Most of the nutritional gurus talk about going through a reboot phase when optimizing your Eat driver. It would be one thing if you were raised in a traditional environment, when everything that should have happened, did; that you were born naturally, you were breastfed, and you never had antibiotics, that you moved a ton, always had a strong community support group, and you continue to live on that traditional diet, you have got it going on. The reality is most of us did not grow up in that environment, and we have some repair to do. As a result, these authors talk about the importance of having a reboot phase. They vary in length from two to three weeks, to longer; the basic idea is that by the end, you have removed all potential toxins from your diet. We have already discussed a great deal about them.

If you are feeling inspired from or wish to adventure outside the scope of this particular book, so as to specify exactly what I think you should do, it would be a reboot. Again, this is all about experimentation, but that reboot phase is one aspect that I do think is important. Mark Hyman calls it rebooting your body to its original factory settings. The basic idea is to omit certain foods, and then you reintroduce foods, testing to see what works and what might not; the reboot phase, if you will. We can perform a blood test in our office to focus in on what specific foods you should omit first. The other thing that all these books have is a kitchen detox.

At this point in our story, we have discussed about some potential toxic triggers and some of which may have been a no-brainer to you, some of which you might have said, “Not so sure about that- really, I need to go study.”

Fantastic! Be an engaged user of health care- dare to disagree with me, and study. Think about it and test it, of course. But, with some of the stuff, you might have heard, and you said: “You know this is a no brainer.” For that stuff, do a kitchen detox. Look at those items in your kitchen right now, and throw them away. Throw away all of the things that you think need to go. You no longer want to have as part of your nutritional plan. Get rid of them!! Be ruthless about it, and then the next time you are at the grocery store make sure not to buy it. That is the kitchen detox; again I cannot stress enough: start with partially hydrogenated anything. Be sure to remember our frenemies, the sneaky sugary drinks. Some researchers say the most toxic thing in your kitchen is sugar. Throw that all away as well. This leads us to food rules.

Food rules… Michael Pollan wrote a great tiny little book on the concept. He has got dozens of rules in it. They are very simple rules of thumb, which we can use as we navigate our nutritional landscape. Here are some of my favorites; come up with your favorite in the workbook and write down what your new rules are. His whole deal is, again, to eat real food from an animal or from the ground, but not too much! Go for mostly plants, and these rules help out. Particularly, identify what is real food and what is fake food.

1. If your great-great-grandma did not need it or would not recognize it as food, do not eat it. This might sound absurdly obvious, but it is incredibly powerful. Recall that diet has changed more in the last 100 years in the prior 100,000 years.

2. If your great-great-grandma needed it, you should need it.

3. The longer the shelf life of a product, the shorter your life. This is a good rule to keep in mind: if a product never spoils, guess what? It is because all the nutrients have been removed from it. This is why sugar and flour are able to be shipped. They both have very little nutritional value. The longer the shelf life, the shorter your life.

4. If there are more than five ingredients, don’t eat it. It’s not real food. It’s fake artificial food; food scientists came up with. If a third grader can’t pronounce, the ingredients don’t eat it. I can’t pronounce half the ingredients in the stuff. If that ingredient doesn’t exist in your kitchen, don’t eat it. The food scientists came up with that you don’t want that in your body. It’s not real food.

5. If it’s a plant, eat it. Unless it’s poisonous. If it was made in a science lab, don’t eat it.

6. If it has a T.V. commercial, avoid eating it; there is too big of a budget attached to the product. The one exception might be avocados; they somehow have an interest group backing that- but you get the idea.

Pollan says that if it makes a food health claim, do NOT eat it! This is somewhat surprising, but he says “Look- if a product can make a food health claim, first of all, it is probably in a box. Secondly, they are able to afford to do that; never a good sign.” You are getting dangerously close to it being non-food- remember Trix and Cocoa Puffs. When the whole Low-fat Movement occurred, “fat is bad; carbs are good.” You want whole grains right? Remember, they can throw in a nominal amount of whole grains into Trix and Cocoa Puffs, and then buy a stamp from the American Heart Association saying it is heart healthy. BAD IDEA, PEOPLE!!

Do not buy foods with health claims! Great idea!! Here is another one: do not buy your body fuel where you get your car fuel. Did you know gas stations make more money inside the store than they do outside? Most of that is junk food. Of course, they sell cigarettes and other little miscellaneous stuff, but they are selling perfectly awesomely horrible non-food. Never buy food where you get your car’s fuel. At the end of the day, what we want to do is reduce the number of steps from farm to fork.

Farm to fork- this is again what all the great teachers talk about… Remember whole food to refined food was the biggest issue and insult to our health. If you want to have food in its most natural state, that would be food picked by a farmer, brought to a farmer’s market, washed, cut and eaten.

Otherwise, when your food gets picked, it gets sent to a factory and processed with weird ingredients added and put into a box. Then it is brought to your grocery store, where it can sit on the shelves forever (God knows how clean or unclean it might be, at that point alone). Then it goes into your body, via a spoon or a fork. Not a good idea!! Shorten that farm to fork window. Most importantly, be willing to break the rules once in a while. We are not discussing a perfect approach, all or none. We are talking about making incremental improvements, day in and day out. I am going to distil it and put it all together for you in this book, The Five Pillars of a Dynamic Health; spoon fed style. You have to be willing to break the rules in turn; once in a while, make that the exception.

By the time we are finished with this training, we will have a plan for you to look forward to. It will be a plan personalized by you; it will be your safe experiment, designed for you. I am going to be your coach and will help you design your own personalized strategy. This book is going to help you get there, where you can say, “I am going to adhere to these rules more often than not, yet there are times where I am going to make exceptions to it.” That is always a wise rule. So there you go! Reboot, kitchen detox, and follow the food rules.

YOUR SECOND BRAIN
Our eighth facet of the Eat driver is brain number two, your second brain. We have got brain number one up in your skull and brain number two, surprisingly down in your gut. Did you know that your gut has 100 million neurons in it? Neurons, or brain cells, are in your gut. It makes no sense, right? But they are there… Crazy. Did you know that your gut produces up to 90% of your serotonin?
Dr. Junger talks about the fact that when he was going to a young doctor and eating the Western diet, he was on all kinds of medications, and he was feeling all kinds of issues including depression. He went to a psychiatrist who said well, you are not producing enough serotonin; he pointed to his brain. Dr. Junger says in hindsight, “He should have pointed to my gut,]]>

Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.

Frustrating isn’t it? What are we suppose to believe?

Welcome to Dynamism Biohack, my name is Dr. Matt Hammett Wellness & Nutrition Expert, Lifestyle Trainer and Movement Enthusiast. In each week I’m going share with you how to make the right nutritious choices despite conflicting expert opinions where I help you to discover how to unlock your inner aborigine or your inner greatness. Thank you for spending this time with me today, so let’s get into the training.

THE PREDOMINANT NOTION IN PSYCHOLOGY follows the rest of Western medicine, in that it focuses on disease, not wellbeing.  In the 20th century, psychology research was primarily focused on mental illness. Martin Seligman, former president of the American Psychological Association, tells us that “for every 100 articles published on mental illness, there were only 1 published on mental health!”

That blew my mind when I read that. I bet this is a common statistic in all of the Western medicine. For every 100 articles published on disease and illness, there is only 1 published on human health!

Wow… What an eye opener!

Seligman adds that “we now have a much better understanding of depression, schizophrenia, and other ‘negative elements’ of human behavior; unfortunately, we made less progress toward scientifically understanding the elements of health and optimal living.” These words are taken right out of the mouth of the former president of the American Psychological Association.

In fact, it was Martin Seligman, who launched an initiative to study health and optimal living in psychology, all while still the president of the American Psychological Association. He wanted to understand happiness and other positive emotions, as well as their influence on health. The “positive psychology” branch of research was launched, and we are all so very grateful. The launch itself is fascinating to me because we have a proof of a leader in Western medicine launching a research initiative toward the advancement of human health and wellness, not human sickness and disease.

Clinicians in the Wellness Revolution should take note of this because if it happened in the field of psychology, it is only a matter of time before it spreads into other branches of healthcare.  The idea of defining healthology may very well be a part of our healthcare soon.

Oh, Im so excited about this show today and that leads me to Dynamism Biohack: Positive Psychology.

I like Seligman’s model for “positive psychology.” His model differs from the old.  In the old model of disease, they take someone from -9 to -2 to 0 through pharmacology and psychotherapy.

Seligman’s work focused on understanding how to guide someone from 0 to +3 to +9. Today, this revolution has validated scientific research on the value of self-awareness, goal-directed behavior, altruism, gratitude and other aspects of optimal living.

What a great example for the rest of healthcare system to witness… Seligman cross-referenced across cultures and the millennia to define six core virtues:5

• Wisdom and knowledge
• Courage
• Love and humanity
• Justice
• Temperance
• Spirituality and transcendence

After identifying these six core virtues, the research discoveries categorized a set of 24 character strengths. We each have aspects of these strengths in our personality. The science is demonstrating that as we discover within ourselves our “signature strengths” and use them regularly in our everyday lives, our happiness and wellbeing both skyrocket.

Focusing on your “signature strengths” while building and using them in your everyday lives are the health attributes for the Cope driver. Robert Sternberg found in his research that the most successful among us were not those with the highest IQs or SATs or GPAs. Rather, the most successful spend just enough time making sure their weaknesses did not kick them in the fanny, and the rest of the time developing their strengths.

The success you have in this model of healthcare, how well you use your Five Pillars of a Dynamic Health, will be determined by use of your personal “positive psychology” building your strengths and the new habits you get to create that you love. That has been the formula for success as I have witnessed from my patients and verified in the literature.

Let us take a moment and identify your strengths. For a detailed look at the “signature strengths” test I recommend you visit ‪AuthenticHappiness.com‬ and take the free assessment.  It will help you with your goals in this program as you become a Dynamic person.

A Dynamic person desires the good life. They understand that the good life is not necessarily the “pleasant life” which might be drinking alcohol and taking a drag off a cigarette while eating whatever you want and remaining sedentary all day. That might be enjoyable for Caged people. People with conscious choice understand that the “good life” is attained by using their signature strengths every day, to produce authentic happiness and abundant gratification.
Dynamic people find a way to use their strengths to see the work they do as a contribution to the greater good; they have a calling.  A calling is working for work’s sake because you are passionate about something. Seligman uses an interesting example, stating that “a physician who views the work as a job and is simply interested in making a good income does not have a calling, while a garbage collector who sees the work as making the world a cleaner, healthier place could have a calling.”

How about you?  You have gotten this far in this book; I bet you have a calling! Take a moment and write your calling description, so you can become a Dynamic person. Let us start with my calling description as an example:

As a wellness expert, health coach, teacher, husband, dad and lifestyle family chiropractor, I am committed to using my signature strengths in the greatest service to my family, community, and the world:

1. I use my creativity every day in writing and in coaching having fun coming up with new ways to implement being a Dynamic person while I embody the ideals of love, fun, and being conscious with all that I am.

2. I use my hope & optimism, setting my intention before I lay my hands on someone, or understanding their environment sharing my enthusiasm for life and ideas about how we can create our greatest lives even in the face of great challenge.

3. I use my courage every day, as I take a significant risk getting my ideas out there in writing or on radio, as a writer and a teacher. I smile and laugh out loud at my imperfections in the face of doubt, ridicule or challenge. I celebrate my courage, and the opportunities I have to put these ideas into practice in my life.

4. I use my kindness & generosity every day as I pay my team generously, and give my heart to my work and relationships circulating as much love, kindness, wisdom, abundance, and zeal as I can.

5. I use my energy & enthusiasm every day as I communicate our message of hope, healing, and new life to my patients and the community across the world.

6. I use my wisdom every day as I distil the essence of these amazing sciences, taking the Latin out of them and putting them into applicable and actionable traits we can all consume and enjoy in our life practice of being a Dynamic person.

Now that you have seen how to put together signature strengths, try writing a calling description of your own. We need to become conscious of how this all comes together, as we create a truly Dynamic person. The life of a Dynamic person consists of deriving happiness by using your signature strengths every day in the five areas of living a Dynamic health. The meaningful life adds one more component, using the same strengths to forward knowledge, power or goodness.

GET YOUR VOICE OUT THERE
The science of igniting and sustaining positive change is how to become your new identity, a Dynamic person. A healthy mind is a free and consciously directed, positively engaged mind. In this present moment of choice, you now have the ability to make the conscious choice to be well. It is your free will to guard.

We can consciously choose our thoughts and perceive our environment. A Dynamic person understands the power of presence. Being present in the moment gives us the ability to be more conscious in life. There are three greatest predictors of success with this model:

1. Choice Optimism
2. Positive Engagement
3. Supporting Foundation

Choice Optimism is not about being irrationally positive; it is about being rational positive. Are you focusing your emotional energies in on the positive of the situation you are facing, or the negative paralyzing aspects of your choice? A Dynamic person takes a realistic assessment of the present moment while maintaining a positive belief that behavior matters in the face of challenge. In this way, they achieve greater results with whatever they are doing. The core belief of a Dynamic person is, “I will stay positively present at the moment while I assess the challenge.”

Positive engagement is the virtue it takes to create a positive perception of the present experience by creating empowering stories about stress. A Dynamic person using their positive engagement to view stress as an opportunity to engage in a challenge, rather than being overwhelmed by the threat.  Positive engagement strategies give them sustainable energies over the long haul of the challenge, in the present moment.  The core belief of a Dynamic person is, “In the face of this challenge at the moment, I will succeed.”

Support foundation is all about how much support you give while working to solve the problem. Research shows that how much support you give, rather than receive, is the remarkable predictor of success. A Dynamic person is a “support altruist,” and they cultivate the social support networks by stepping up and lending a hand. They often engage in leadership toward the improvement in the community. The core belief of a Dynamic person is, “I invest in the success of others.”

Every word we think to ourselves or say to someone else during our day counts, but particularly in the very beginning of each new social interaction. Research shows an excellent predictor to how conservation will turn positive or negative, is determined how the conversation gets started. Let me give you a few examples to illustrate this more clearly: in the work environment, when conducting a meeting, start that meeting with a few minutes of gratitude or positive stories about the progress your team has made.

The home environment can be just as exhilarating. My wife and I have four children, and much of our home life can at times feel like the workplace. We both try very hard engaging our children. The first time we speak to them after school we seek to focus first on the awesomeness of the day with an empowering question about the coolness of their day. Also remember, new parents, “it’s not about what is in the diaper, it is about who is in the diaper!”

The computer can be the easiest way of engagement. In an email, I may add a simple positive line like, “Hi NAME, hope your day is filled with awesomeness!” Then get into whatever needs to be said.

The research is very clear about this. Positive psychologist and former CBS News anchor Michelle Gielan writes about the power of broadcasting your voice in those first moments of conversation. Researchers with four-year-old children were asked to think of a positive memory, versus a negative memory. The children had primed with a positive memory before they began a task; they were 66% more efficient at figuring out games involving shapes, as a result.  Gielan reminds us not to start our day watching the negative news because the rest of your day tends to follow.

This amazing piece of advice is coming from a former news anchor, and presently, a positive psychologist: I never start my day watching the news or reading the newspaper. In fact, no one in my family starts our day with that kind of negative influence.  I have lived that way for over 20 years, and I do not feel like I have missed a beat in life. If you want a dose of advice, end your subscription with the negative newspaper, and keep the television off in the morning. Trust me; any actual relevant news will come from your social interactions.  Even then, most of those are irrelevant. Assessing relevance is one of the easiest steps you can take to protect yourself and your family from negative conditioning; I cannot recommend it enough!

In a recent study conducted at the University of Pennsylvania, researchers were able to predict levels of heart disease in a community, based on the tweets coming from people living there. They looked at language patterns in these tweets and assessed them for negative emotions and strained relationships coming for local Twitter users. The researchers predicted levels of heart disease better than an existing ten-point model that used information such as demographics and health risk factors (diabetes, hypertension, and obesity). What they determined from this research was that language expression on Twitter might be a better predictor of heart attacks than medical questionnaires!

Most adults realize today that the phrase, “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me,” just is not quite accurate. What we say to ourselves and others matters.

A Dynamic person creates a “positive lead” in the conversation, either with themselves or with someone else, by creating positive leading questions.

Lighten up, move better and live fuller.

Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.

Frustrating isn’t it? What are we suppose to believe?

Welcome to Dynamism Biohack, my name is Dr. Matt Hammett Wellness & Nutrition Expert, Lifestyle Trainer and Movement Enthusiast. In each week I’m going share with you how to make the right nutritious choices despite conflicting expert opinions where I help you to discover how to unlock your inner aborigine or your inner greatness. Thank you for spending this time with me today, so let’s get into the training.

OPTIMISM IS THE BELIEF THAT GOOD THINGS will happen. Negative events are only temporary and local. Most importantly, optimistic people understand that their behavior matters in the face of a challenge.

They are Dynamic people using their conscious choice. Pessimism is the belief that adverse events are permanent and pervasive. Pessimists believe that behaviors do not matter in creating a positive outcome. They are prone to use the cliché phrase, “it is genetic” in most situations. They have Caged people trapped behind the bars of their making.

Choice optimism, however, is rational optimism; it is taking a realistic assessment of the present moment while maintaining a positive outlook and the belief that we can triumph over any challenge.

And that leads us to Dynamism Biohack: The Moment You Own It.

An example of this comes from my life while I was in post-graduate school. I became friends with an exchange student from South Korea, who was shy and nervous around girls. He had little self-confidence and one day I asked him why. After he had pointed to a few pimples on his face, his answer was that he was ugly.

Now, my friend was a vegetarian with lean muscle; I am certain he was not ugly. For him, he was so focused on the negativity of his Caged version of himself that he energetically radiated negativity; thus, low energy to most people who met him. One day he commented about a girl he liked, but she always seemed nervous, moving away so quickly that my friend took it personally. I gave him a quick lesson in rational optimism and suggested that maybe she, too, was nervous. I suggested, “Change the approach and view yourself as a handsome, lean man who is expressing interest in making a new friend.”

I then told him to act it out in front of a mirror, or even videotape himself acting as he was rehearsing for a play, paying attention to the descriptions in the muscles of his face, the wrinkles, the brightness of his eyes, the various expressions he wanted to display, etc. Long story short, he got the girl! It is always fantastic what a dose of choice optimism can do in the face of any challenge.

In the above example with my South Korean friend, I illustrated a story about choice optimism. I asked him a question that turned everything around. Did you catch that? I used what psychologist call, “fact checking.”

To cultivate rational optimism, a Dynamic person uses “fact checking” to assess their predominant thinking about a given challenge. Michelle Gielan walks us through an example of “fact checking” in her book, Broadcasting Happiness.

As a journalist and a broadcaster for CBS, fact checking was something important while developing a story. Her intake on this concept comes from her career at CBS. She teaches us “not to ignore any negative thoughts or challenges, but [to] hold them up to some fact checking.”6 Just as I did with my South Korean friend, she suggests walking through a process, which includes isolating a stressful thought, listing the facts known, then listing what she calls “fuelling facts” that illuminate a new story. The idea of “fuelling facts” is simply a reinterpretation that provides fuel and igniting personal power, rather than fleeting to a diminishing power.

In the case of my South Korean friend, he acknowledged that he is “holding is head low,” and I gave him instructions both in how to move his body and focus his thoughts. A bit of rehearsal and a video camera later, my depressed low self-esteem friend became Will Smith, the relationship expert.

By adding fuel facts to the story, but not ignoring reality, I created a choice optimism experience for my friend in which the challenges fuelled his growth and made him stronger.

Nassim Taleb tells us that the “wind extinguishes a candle and fuels a fire.” Interestingly enough, I was totally unaware of positive psychology at the time; I only was providing social support for my friend and wanted to see him succeed and become happier in life. I think that is the gist of our story in the Cope driver.

That is, we innately know what to do as humans. When we are involved with one another in a community, we help each other, and we grow together. In fact, we cannot be healthy as a human without each other. How about you?

THE MOMENT YOU OWN IT

Novel research performed “in my backyard” at the famed University of Chicago by Professor Sian Beilock, one of the world’s leading researchers studying the science of optimal human performance, reveals the science about how the brain responds when under pressure.

Her lab is so cool; it is called the Human Performance Lab. She is famous for studying professional athletes and others who seem to choke under pressure. I thought her research could help us along our journey together, because being a father of four, I am aware of how easy it is to choke under the pressure of, well, being a dad.

For example, research shows that when they ice a kicker during a football game, it increases the likelihood of choking. It is our perception of the stress we are dealing with, which causes us to choke under pressure. There is a real science behind what is going on when we worry, and how it affects us differently, whether we are at home dealing with what food to make, at the grocery store choosing foods to buy, or under the stress of an exam at school.

Let me give you an example of choking under pressure. While taking an exam, you will need all the cognitive resources; you need an active working memory. When you worry, you take those resources away and have a hard time solving complex problems.

The result: you choke.

The same phenomenon happens with athletes. When we allow worry to “seep into our brains, we tend to bring too much thought into what should be a thoughtless activity. Rather than let our bodies do what we have trained them to do, we attempt to control our behaviors, and our once fluid, expert motions become rigid”.

The great news is that by training our minds not to focus on negative thoughts, we can mold and carve new neural pathways to discard the negative thoughts under pressure. As a result, we do not choke under pressure.

The Zen meditation study was a scientific study which proved that intense meditation strategy reduces the elaborative thinking and clears our mind from distractions. Discarding these thoughts is not the same as ignoring them, or suppressing them; that uses working memory. To discard them, you acknowledge them, name them, and let go of them.

A great exercise is to write them down in your journal and then not attach any more brainpower to it. The act of physically writing helps the brain let go, once you finish the sentence. Try it!

OPTIMISM IS THE BELIEF THAT GOOD THINGS will happen. Negative events are only temporary and local. Most importantly, optimistic people understand that their behavior matters in the face of a challenge.
They are Dynamic people using their conscious choice. Pessimism is the belief that adverse events are permanent and pervasive. Pessimists believe that behaviors do not matter in creating a positive outcome. They are prone to use the cliché phrase, “it is genetic” in most situations. They have Caged people trapped behind the bars of their making.
Choice optimism, however, is rational optimism; it is taking a realistic assessment of the present moment while maintaining a positive outlook and the belief that we can triumph over any challenge.
And that leads us to Dynamism Biohack: The Moment You Own It.

Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.

Frustrating isn’t it? What are we suppose to believe?

Welcome to Dynamism Biohack, my name is Dr. Matt Hammett Wellness & Nutrition Expert, Lifestyle Trainer and Movement Enthusiast. In each week I’m going share with you how to make the right nutritious choices despite conflicting expert opinions where I help you to discover how to unlock your inner aborigine or your inner greatness. Thank you for spending this time with me today, so let’s get into the training.

Today’s training is a continuation of our last training, this is part II of Dynamism Biohack: Faulty Rat Science.

Let us examine a few examples of how cancer would be different in rats than humans. Scientists use rats and other animals to test certain chemicals used in households or factories to test cancer-causing potential or environmental pollutants. Here again, problems lie in this model; rats are poor predictors of human cancer risk for many reasons I have already covered. Some studies suggest that these tests on rats and other animals agree only 70% of the time. The problem with this theory is that rats are prone to different types of cancers than those affecting human beings. For example, the second leading cause of cancer death in people in the U.S. is spontaneous colon tumors but this is almost non-existent in rats and other rodent species. Why? Again the vast difference between organ structure and function, metabolism and on and on….

Were going to dive deep into this stuff with part II of Dynamism Biohack: Faulty Rat Science.

Another example for our argument includes the difference in bladder cancer between rats and humans. Male rats have two specific proteins that humans do not synthesize, which makes rats more prone to bladder cancer. It is the high concentrations of alpha-2U-globulin and albumin, found in rat urine. J.A. Swenberg, from the Chemical Industry Institute of Toxicology, writes, “Humans do not synthesize alpha-2U. Therefore, a direct extrapolation of rat data cannot be made”. Yet. They do it any way.

In the male rat, the liver manufactures the alpha-2U-globulin. It then gets secreted into the blood. While it is in the blood, it travels to the kidney and filters into the urine. This changes the entire spectrum, you can’t use a rat for cancer research; yet… we do it anyway.

RATS- TEST RESULTS DON’T APPLY TO HUMAN

I’m not alone on this, the Authors by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine which is a group of medical doctors and Phd’s state that rat tests results do not apply to humans and are calling for newer models in research. They cite 20 distinct differences between rats and humans which make it difficult if not impossible to extrapolate rat studies to use for human standards. The result is evident. Animal test results, do not apply to humans.

The third leading cause of death in the U.S. is strokes. When we try to understand why we cannot seem to beat this disease, we need to look at our scientific disciplinary strategies. Once again, we see a problem. Strokes are rare in rats and other animals. In fact, even the conditions that lead up to a stroke in human rarely develop in rats and other animals. Despite these differences, science still developed animal “models” for stroke. According to the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, the scientific community has severely criticized the usefulness of animal models. Researchers at the University of Iowa and the Mayo Clinic have something to add to this position, “Although animal models of cerebral ischemia have been used extensively to test new therapies in human stroke, their record for identifying clinically effective drugs has been disappointing.”

In fact, they developed 25 different compounds in laboratory animal models of stroke, not even one of them worked on humans. These authors even add that “An over-reliance upon such models may impede rather than advance scientific progress in the treatment of this disease.”

There is one other more important difference I am going to share; I believe part of our problem in tackling the third leading cause of death in the U.S. stems from ignorance to basic science between differing species.

Now, we must examine the essential difference between rats and humans. If you are a true doctor, you must respect natural law and the order of ecology in life; we are animated earth.
In diet, rats require 20-27% of their calories as protein for a maintenance diet. Our medical model view suggest humans need 8-10% of their calories as protein. Of course this is not agreed upon depending upon which expert you talk to, that is a different show altogether.

In BMI, baby rats grow 5-6 grams per day in weight. That equates to about 10% of their body weight. Human children grow much more slowly: about 5 grams per day, which is 0.00025% of their body weight.

At this point in today’s show, there is simply no argument; rats are not miniature humans. Why don’t scientists understand the significant difference between differing species? How can we continue to attempt drug extrapolation techniques from studying different species? Once again, this rat paradigm is just not adding up.

Rats produce their milk with mammary tissue extending from the upper chest to the abdomen which would vastly change how they produce milk for the sustenance of the young when compared to humans. The ratio of a rat to human lifespan is 1 to 30.

Even the skin between species has different developmental origin, structure, and chemical composition. For example, the skin is an organ of the integumentary system made up of multiple layers of ectodermal tissue and guards the underlying muscles, bones, ligaments and internal organs. In humans, skin is useful for wound healing. The reception of estrogen promotes the speed and quality of wound healing in human skin. In rats, they have thin skin and lack the outer keratinized layer that humans have. The outer layer serves as and forms a waterproof, protective wrap over the body’s surface and most importantly serves as a barrier to infection with many other specialized cells. Therefore, infection and other protective methods of skin differ vastly and would once again compromise lab results. Rats have a non-convoluted cerebrum, while the human brain has extensive convolutions, indicating the degree of cortex development.

Rats’ incisors grow continuously, and they do not get plaque as humans do if fed a regular diet. They also do not develop a spontaneous periodontal disease. I can only imagine medical authorities 50 years ago telling the public not to have a dentist scrape plaque off your teeth because they claim there is no evidence for this. They might add that the dentist is just after your money. Well, my father in law recently retired from dentistry and shared that story with me because when he first began practicing 50 years ago the medical community criticized dentistry making those claims against scraping plaque. Sounds very similar to what they did to Chiropractic and the Flexner report we discussed in an earlier training doesn’t it? But what’s comical about this, if your evidence comes from the Almighty Rat Study, and rats can’t get tartar and plague because of their difference in species variation; they don’t care. Technically, their evidence would support that scraping plaque is not scientific! Interesting isn’t it… And we continue to hear doctors sounding just like this today. Most of these doctors. They honestly just don’t know. This stuff is not brought up in medical school, or even chiropractic school for that matter.

If that’s not enough to convince you of the scientific bullying based on erroneous rat and animal studies; let me continue. There are significant reproductive differences between species, as well. When we compare species differences for reproduction, rats have a double-horned uterus; humans do not. They also have two cervices and 8 to 14 babies in a litter; humans have only one cervix.

There are also vital organs which rats lack, that humans possess; have you ever wondered where we got the idea that humans don’t need tonsils? Guess what…

Rats do not have tonsils. Perhaps that is where we got the idea that humans do not need their tonsils.

Boy, did we get that wrong…

Rats are more susceptible to respiratory pathogens because they are nose-breathers. They also do not have the ability to vomit, and being unable to vomit; they are more vulnerable to ingested toxins.

These examples of differences between rats and humans explain how unique species differences in basic anatomy and organ function will always yield different results. By no means is the orchestrated science real evidence for humanity. Therefore, we need a new way to evaluate science, and thankfully other scientists from many different disciplines like the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine have begun looking into new novel ways to explore humanity.

At this point, let me stop depressing you and start focusing on the new solutions; if you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m not alone with these ideas.

Leading researchers, posted their results titled “The Western Diet and Lifestyle, and Diseases of Civilization.” They concluded that our ancestors had the following characteristics:

 Regular sun exposure (except for the Inuit, whose very high intake of vitamin D3 from fish and marine mammals may have rendered the lack of ultraviolet stimulated cutaneous vitamin D synthesis less relevant).

 Sleep patterns in synch with the daily variation in light exposure.
 Acute, as opposed to chronic, stress.
 Regular physical activity, as this was required to obtain food and water, to escape from predators, for social interaction, and to build shelters.

Finally, they have lack of exposure to man-made environments.

OUR ANCIENT BONES TEACH

At this point in the training, we have a dire need for change and human research is always better than studying rats (and other various animals and species) and trying to compare rat and animal data to human data.

It’s time to look at what we have, what are tools can do, and find a new solution. One such solution into humanity for humanity; comes from studying ancient healthy humans.

Research techniques that led our discovery of dinosaurs lend a hand to our new knowledge of our ancient human ancestors. New technology has uncovered the secrets to our ancient past that was once locked away. Technologies like anatomical, biomechanical, and isotopic analyses of the different human skeletons have paved a new model toward understanding human health. By combining new technology with various academics, like the archaeological and geological evaluation of our ancient habitats, and ethnographic studies of various hunter–gatherer societies, a new method of human analysis is now possible.

I stated earlier that the Agricultural Revolution began about 11,000 years ago in the Middle East. Its method of farming sprouted many benefits to the wide-scale effort of food production and later spread to other regions of the globe.

This movement drastically altered the diet and lifestyle that had shaped the human genome (for a millennium.) Some of the more significant dietary changes were the use of cereal grains as staple foods, the introduction of nonhuman milk, domesticated meats, legumes and other cultivated plant foods, and later widespread use of sucrose, alcoholic beverages, leisure and sedentary lifestyles. Some of the more significant lifestyle changes include “medicalization of life” (modern medicine) and various synthetic compounds and pollutants mostly derived and tested from research on animals.

Nevertheless, it was the Industrial Revolution with the widespread use of refined vegetable oils, refined cereal grains, refined sugars and our comfort driven sedentary lifestyle that gave rise to the Modern Age. The “junk food” industry, generalized physical inactivity, the introduction of various pollutants mainly drugs, the avoidance of sun exposure, reduced sleep time and quality coupled with increased chronic psychological stress brought about the most disruptive and maladaptive changes of our evolutionary time in our history as a species.

These stressors are associated with chronic low-grade inflammation, which is one of the leading causes of insulin resistance. (Low-grade chronic inflammation is involved in all stages of the atherosclerotic process and is being increasingly recognized as a universal mechanism in various chronic degenerative diseases, such as autoimmune diseases, certain cancers, neuropsychiatric diseases, and osteoporosis.)

Scientists from around the world also warn of certain environmental pollutants, including pesticides and various industrial chemicals, which may act as endocrine disruptors. These forms of pollutants are suspected of playing a causal role in hormone-dependent cancers such as breast and prostate cancer, insulin resistance, type-II diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular disease. Insufficient sleep (fewer than 6 hours per 24-hour day) is also associated with chronic low-grade inflammation and worsening insulin resistance, as well as increased risks for obesity, type-II diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.

One study showed that 28% of US adults sleep six or fewer hours per 24-hour period. Moreover, social and work pressures, as well as exposure to artificial light at atypical biologic times, induce a disruption of the normal circadian rhythm which is believed to play a key role in various diseases. Therefore, the relativist idea that sleep or parts of it are optional should be regarded with caution.

Regarding dietary changes, it should be mentioned that in the United States, dairy products, refined sugars, cereal grains (especially the refined form), vegetable oils, and alcohol constitute up to 70% of the total daily energy consumed. As pointed out by Dr. Loren Cordain, a scientist who specializes in the fields of nutrition and exercise physiology, “these types of foods would have contributed little or none of the energy in the typical pre-agricultural hominid diet.”

The technologies like anatomical, biomechanical, and isotopic analyses of the different human skeletons and the new model I am proposing in this training moves us toward understanding and promoting human health. Since the founding of the Five Pillars of a Dynamic Health strategy, we are not just anti-vivisection, we are pro-science and pro-alternative toward scientifically superiority with a focus on improving the health and wellbeing for humanity. Our messager is clear: there is a better way to promote human and animal health than the current sickness/disease paradigm which is outdated, cruel, and an ineffective use of animals in research, testing, and education.

So how do you distinguish an expert opinion you may hear on the radio or see on TV. It certainly is not his or her good lucks, charism or charm. You focus on one question. Are the studies they point to human or animal studies and are they relevant to the claims they are making. Lighten up, move better and live fuller.

Frustrating isn’t it? What are we suppose to believe?

Welcome to Dynamism Biohack, my name is Dr. Matt Hammett Wellness & Nutrition Expert, Lifestyle Trainer and Movement Enthusiast. In each week I’m going share with you how to make the right nutritious choices despite conflicting expert opinions where I help you to discover how to unlock your inner aborigine or your inner greatness. Thank you for spending this time with me today, so let’s get into the training.

MOST LABORATORY EXPERIMENTS IN SCIENCE use rats. While I was preparing my thesis to co-author with a nanotechnologist expert for funding to develop our pain biosensor ideas, I discovered that the ideas I borrowed from boy genius Jack Andranka would only work for a rat!

 

One of the most striking discoveries I made in my own scientific journey was what I call the lab rat race. Simply put, applying animal models to study human diseases will not work. Species differences in anatomy and physiology including, organ structure and function, toxin metabolism, antibody physiology, chemical, drug, nutrition absorption, and mechanisms of DNA repair among a whole host of other differences between humans and other species.

In my case, I realized the creation of the world’s first human pain biosensor would require human studies. Specific antibodies get released during inflammation and tissues react and behave very differently between species. This training is devoted to the finding in my own discovery which led me to the decision not to continue co-authorship for the research and why I recommend natural health first choice for all human beings.

And that leads us to the next Dynamism Biohack: Faulty Rat Science; Part I.

Research from the Office of Technology Assessment found that between 3.4 and 3.7 million rats are killed each year in laboratory experiments. Estimates from other sources range as high as 23.6 million every year.6 Rats differ strikingly from humans in many respects, rendering rat experiments difficult to extrapolate data to compare or make recommendations for people. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and the pharmaceutical industry admit this. The FDA reports that 92% of drugs approved for testing in humans fail to receive approval for human use. The National Institutes of Health reports that 95 out of every 100 drugs that successfully pass animal trials and go into human clinical testing fail during the human clinical trial phase. In addition, more than half of the few drugs approved are later withdrawn or relabeled due to serious or lethal adverse effects in humans. Nevertheless, scientists continue to use rats and other animals for human research.

Animal research is a multi-billion dollar industry with high commercial interest. It is one of the major reasons we continue animal research and why it is fiercely defended despite the obvious limitations, dangers, and hindrance against the battle of human diseases.

CHANGE OCCURS IN STEPS

The leading killer of American adults is heart disease, silent and deadly. Due to similar genetic makeup (and get this: we are apparently closest in terms of DNA… to rodents!), rats are commonly used to create medications for human disease. The problem is evident; rats are very different from us in so many ways. To say otherwise, is a flat out lie, a lie funded by billions of dollars.

Regarding heart disease, rats differ from us in the ways they process fat and cholesterol. Rats have a much higher activity of a particular liver enzyme called 5-desaturase.7 Now, don’t get weirded out by the science, again, I will always bring it back to practicality. But I can’t explain this without getting into the geeky star trek version of myself. So bear with me. At any rate this enzyme changes the chemical structure of various tissues including the liver, the adrenal glands, the kidneys, platelets, and fat. Therefore the various tissues would process differently from a biochemical standpoint, with different results compared to humans.

In a fact a researcher at Boston’s Tufts University said the result is that “the rat is not an appropriate human model for studies involving lipids.”8 To contrast, another researcher wrote, “It is not possible to extrapolate directly from rat to human studies because of differences in plasma lipoprotein [cholesterol and triglycerides] the metabolism between the species” is vastly different.

In humans, cholesterol in the liver forms bile acids. From the liver, they are excreted into the gallbladder and the intestine. Rats secrete their bile acids very differently from humans. In rats, they go directly into the intestine, as they lack a gallbladder. Rats make a bile acid called muricholic acid, and humans do not manufacture bile acids at all. Rats have a unique ability to eliminate cholesterol from their body via the muricholic acid they produce.

Rats, unlike humans, are very resistant to changes in serum cholesterol and are also resistant to diet-induced plaques in the arteries making rat studies invalid and incomplete for human analysis.
Now. You may ask, aren’t the scientist aware of this? Oh yeah, and here lies the so called bliss of modern science. So instead of respecting natural law and obvious species differences, we artificially create a bypass.

In this case, scientists have to adapt to these differences by creating artificial environments. In other words, to try to get around Mother Nature, researchers manufacture specific lesions in rats; they feed rats a combination of cholesterol, thiouracil (an anti-thyroid drug), casein, and cholic acid (a bile acid).

In contrast, natural lesions found in humans happen when we add bad fats like saturated fats to diets. When science manufactures a by-pass way to get around Mother Nature, it messes with the entire biochemical and ecological chain. BAD IDEA.

You simply can’t do that if you want a high quality valid research study. They will produce data, but it will never be real evidence. It would amount to manufactured evidence derived out of a vacuum, only existing in a controlled lab. The manufactured lab is today’s golden standard in science, and like me, many experts are calling for a change.

So far in our story, you know how passionate I am about this because I found my mother half on the bed and half off the bed trying to call for help, dead from a heart attack. The scary fact of it all was, no one knew she had a heart problem. When I discovered that scientists were quarreling about research like this, I knew we need an entirely different paradigm. I asked the simple question.

Does this rat model make sense?

In dealing with the third leading cause of death, heart disease, which killed my mother, we find rat studies are the preferred model for research even though researchers are quarreling about some significant species differences.

So for example in heart disease, rats have much higher levels of the enzyme ATPase in the heart. ATPase is imperative for energy metabolism making rats resistant to digitalis drugs used in humans for heart failure. Rats also have a unique and different cardiovascular system; their normal heart rate is 300-500 beats per minute, compared to the human 60-80 beats per minute.

Changes like this in heart rates between differing species, is enough to stop any further research in any area of science in zoology, marine biology, where they don’t swap out one species from another. When we compare findings from experts in these disciplines, they would never consider furthering these experiments. The difference in heart rate would spark an entire different conversation here, just know, in other -ologist not dealing with humans, they would hault any further cardiolovascular studies because of these species differences.

When we get into cancer experiments, it gets worse. Researchers are saying that rat to human cancer experiments has gone awry. In fact, when we hear in the news media that we might be closer to a cancer cure, know that they are talking about a rat or a mouse cure, not a human. In fact, Dr. Richard Klausner, former Director of the National Cancer Institute stated, “We have cured cancer in mice for decades- and it simply didn’t work in humans.”

Cancer, which took my dad’s life, is the second most common cause of death in the U.S. Once again we have vast differences between species when studying cancer. Cancer research is a tough topic to tackle. So for our purposes just know that rats differ from humans in many ways that have major effects on cancer research.

Let me illustrate this with a few examples I could find from comments by scientists pushing away from rat science; let us start with nutrition; unfortunately, we get our nutrition advice from rats, too. We can use beta-carotene and vitamin A as an example. Compounds central to cancer and nutrition research include beta-carotene and related compounds called carotenoids. The human biochemistry converts beta carotene into Vitamin A. Therefore, beta carotene is a precursor of Vitamin A. We need Vitamin A for a variety of well understood reasons, like healthy skin and mucus membranes, our immune system, and eye health including vision. Carotenoids are the pigments that give fruits and vegetables their vibrant colors. They also act as antioxidants which gives strong cancer-fighting properties.

Rats handle beta-carotene markedly differently from human beings. Rats have the ability to form Vitamin A by splitting carotenoids within the cells lining of their unique intestinal walls using a particular enzyme lacking in humans. Rats convert most of the dietary carotene to Vitamin A.

Humans, in contrast, do not have the ability to make Vitamin A. We need to absorb substantial amounts of unchanged carotenoids from our diet and store approximately 15 percent of it in the body. People save about 100-200 mg of carotenoids in our fatty tissue. The rat does not store beta-carotene in the fatty tissue. In fact, scientists have only found small amounts of beta-carotene in their livers. Once again, researchers attempt to compensate for this by artificially supplementing with large amounts of beta-carotene to design their studies in order to manufacture evidence to protect their interest.

The problems when applying this information from animal research to humans involves species differences in anatomy, organ structure and function, toxin metabolism, chemical and drug absorption, and mechanisms of DNA repair. It gives us inadequate and erroneous information when we attempt to apply animal data to human diseases, drug and even nutrition responses. Why? Because every species is unique to it’s own species.

To complicate matters further, we can take a look at some of these mechanisms by exploring Vitamin C. Everyone knows that vitamin C neutralizes free radicals, which plays a role in preventing cancer and scurvy and other physiological functions. Rats use an enzyme called L-gulono oxidase to synthesize vitamin C in the liver from glucose. Again, big problem. Humans do not have L-gulono oxidase and do not synthesize vitamin C at all.

Most animal species can synthesize vitamin C, but humans cannot do so, at all.18 Rats synthesize around 20-30 mg of vitamin C- just a fraction of the equivalent of about 7.5 grams in an adult human.19
The species difference between rats and humans it our case of Vitamin C is a classic example between the differences in vitamins and their role in organ devolpment and function, nutrient abosrption, and even the different mechansims involved in DNA repair.

Take for example scurvy in 1747. James Lind a medical apprentice is honored for being the man who cured scurvy in the 18th Century for his accidental discovery aboard his sea voyages for the Royal Navy. Almost the whole crew was experiencing the debilitating symptoms of scurvy which included open flesh sores, bleeding gums, dreadful terrors, immobility and death. Citrus fruit had already been suggested as a cure by some, but it was the sailors who ate the ship’s rats that was most peculiar. Recall that rats and other animals synthesize their own vitamin C. Whereas humans have to get it from our diet, apparently for the sailors, eating rats or citrus fruit.
The first time science brought a rat into the laboratory for study was in 1828. It took the next 30 years to create the first animal domesticated for purely scientific reasons. In other words, for over 100 years, we did not understand why eating the rats on that ship cured scurvy, nor did we understand the species differences between species and the erroneous impact that may have on our world today when clinicians think they have a valid argument when they refer to rat studies when formulating drug therapies for humans.

This current mainstream ideology in science right now, is the single most important invention since the invention of fire! And like fire, it has the ability to consume and destroy us all if we fail to think through our current scientific methodologies and continue to flog any scientists who exposes these weaknesses.

In fact, our vast knowledge of species differences across a wide variety of species is only recently being discovered. The terrifying fact of this animal research is being swept under the rug.

Did you know that clinical scientists do not have to publish all of their results? For example, if they use 5 different species to study. They do not have to publish their failed results. In other words, let’s say that they published a favorable result to create a drug from a laboratory rat that showed promising results. This result could push the development of drugs for human consumption. Let’s say for our example that they used 4 other species. So they used a lab bred rat, a wild rat, a mouse, a pig, and a bird. In their study, the lab bred rat showed the favorable result. But the wild rat developed kidney failure and liver disease. The mouse developed gall stones and needed the gall bladder removed to save it’s life and became diabetic. The pig became obese and developed short term memory issues and dementia after one week of experimentation, and the bird lost it’s ability to fly, suffered nerve damage, vision issues, it’s ability to thrive and just sat immobile unto death. The scientists would only have to publish the favorable result they created from the laboratory rat, a rat not found that way in the wild, a man-made creation.

This is an accurate fictional story to explain real world science and so called evidence based practice most clinical doctors are not aware of because they do not study clinical scientific methodology. While I admit for our story here, I used very real human side effects to drugs, because these very real human side effects actually do occur this way with the other species scientists are not legally required to report!

If you like today’s training, please like it, love it, leave a comment. How did it help you in your scientific journey? How did it help you lighten up, move better and live fuller. In our next training, I’m going to continue this rat saga, and tackle more of the cancer research. Until next time, lighten up, move better and live fuller.

Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.

Frustrating isn’t it? What are we suppose to believe?

Welcome to Dynamism Biohack, my name is Dr. Matt Hammett Wellness & Nutrition Expert, Lifestyle Trainer and Movement Enthusiast. In each week I’m going share with you how to make the right nutritious choices despite conflicting expert opinions where I help you to discover how to unlock your inner aborigine or your inner greatness. Thank you for spending this time with me today, so let’s get into the training.

Kiddos and Chiropractic Care.

The question we get from many people, “why do chiropractors check children?” A human brain requires constant input from movement to keep the batteries charged. This is especially true for children because spinal joint receptor stimulation plays an integral role in the development of the child’s brain and nervous system and the effects of decreased stimulation of the brain in childhood have been linked to central motor impairment, developmental impairments, learning disabilities, concentration problems like ADHD, behavioral problems such as violence and increased illnesses such as ear, nose, and throat infections, sleeping difficulties, and colic.

Researchers report that “spinal movement stimulates connectivity and is a crucial feature of brain development because the neural pathways formed during the early years carry signals that allow us to process information throughout our lives.” The great news in brain research is that with focused attention, as you will learn in the next training you can change your thoughts, change your sedentary activities, change your mechanoreceptor input (generate brain power), and change your behaviors to make a positive improvement in your life.

And that leads me to Dynamism Biohack Our Kiddos and Chiropractic Care.

The other awesome news is that if you don’t reinforce the neural networks currently used for sedentary lifestyle, improper food addictions, activities and behaviors and emotional suffering, your brain will stop using those networks, and they will fall by the wayside of unwanted past experiences. What is most promising, the greatest impact we can have with our brain power comes during our childhood, as parents, our job is to stop feeding the old circuitry that reinforces negative neural connections to activities that strengthen positive neural connections. In this day and age, only a Doctor of Chiropractic can adjust the spine and turn on the essential movement requirement our children need to get and stay healthy.

Most experts do not understand the importance of spinal movement and brain connectivity or plasticity. Many researchers think that it was just the exercise that improved brain and overall health due to increased blood flow and oxygen supply. Further research has shown that “aerobic activity is not what is responsible for the amazing benefits of proper movement stimulation of the brain. It is the neurological stimulation of the pathways between moving joints, (especially spinal joints) and the brain that are responsible for movement stimulation”.

One of the world’s foremost neuroscientist in neurology and nutrition Dr. David Perlmutter says, “Through neuroplasticity the brain can rewire neural pathways, and even establish new neural superhighways.” Specific focused and engaged stimulation is what creates neural networks. Perlmutter tells us “it takes more than simple repetition to create neural networks.” The bad practice also creates less than optimum circuitry that will need to be dealt with. Perlmutter demonstrated that a major component of neurogenesis is a protein called brain-derived neurotrophic factor ( or BDNF) which plays a key role in creating new neurons. BDNF also protects existing neurons helping to ensure their survivability while encouraging synapse formation or connection of one neuron to another. This connectivity is vital for thinking, learning, and higher levels of brain function. Perlmutter wrote a book with a medical anthropologist and shaman, Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D. called Power up Your Brain. In their book they give a great description of the effects of BDNF:

“We now have a very firm understanding of the factors that influence our DNA to produce BDNF. Fortunately, these factors are by and large under our direct control. Increasing your production of BDNF and thus increasing neurogenesis while adding protection to your existing brain neurons doesn’t require that you enroll in a research study to determine if some new laboratory created compound will enhance BDNF production. The gene that turns on BDNF is activated by a variety of factors, including voluntary physical exercise…” As you know from our earlier discussion about BDNF in the training on the Move driver of a dynamic health, it is mechanoreceptor stimulation from moving spinal joints that Nobel Prize winner Dr. Roger Sperry said produces 90% of nutrients including BDNF into the brain and now we know are powerful epigenetic factors that modify the expression of your DNA.

Our Sedentary Lifestyle as defined by not getting that 15,000 steps a day or 8-10 miles of walking generating spinal motion & Sticky Spinal Joints, or subluxation of the spine, diminishes our power generator to the brain body pathways necessary to keep us functioning optimally.

Researchers and clinical professionals have given the ramifications of the widespread sedentary lifestyle, the nickname ‘The Sitting Disease’, due to the negative health effects associated with sitting down all day, exerting little energy. Worldwide, physical inactivity is the fourth-leading risk factor for global mortality, contributing to six percent of deaths, and is second only to tobacco smoking as a leading modifiable health risk factor contributing to the burden of disease and injury in Australia. Sitting disease is the new tobacco.

It is the fifth leading risk factor for men and the third leading risk factor for women. Interesting special note here, this research was aware of or did not utilize the newer research between faulty spinal motion and brain health.

In other words, these statistics are probably much worse than this if they were looking at ‘The Sitting Disease’ and its effect on specific joint, spinal mobility, the neuro-spinal organ, and brain to body function.

At any rate, this is what they found:
A sedentary lifestyle has been linked to negative mental and physical health outcomes, including;
-Anxiety
-Cardiovascular disease
-Depression
-Diabetes
-Stroke
-Colon and Breast Cancer
-High Blood Pressure
-Obesity
-Osteoporosis
-Kidney Stones
-Decreased Life Expectancy

As I already explained in our last training on Family Matters, Chiropractic care is a supplement for our movement joint brain body stimulation needs. We simple don’t walk and move anywhere enough to what are genome is adapted for, and that is a serious stressor to our health, and in of itself, promotes disease and chronic illness.

It should be obvious why it is so important to ensure every child, and human being has a properly moving and aligned spine, as the spinal joints are the main source of sensory movement stimulation to the brain. If there is subluxation in the spine (or a movement dysfunction), movement and therefore essential, nutrient delivery to the brain and most cells in the body are compromised, in an emerging field called mechanobiology, we learn that this compromised effect leads to aptososis, or cells death.. Therefore, we are just beginning to understand how immobile spinal joints not firing proper mechanoreceptive stimulation to charge our brain, may lead to cell death including cancer.

The upper neck has been found to be particularly important to examine for two huge reasons. The first, because it is the most easily damaged especially in children due to birth trauma, falls, poor sleeping postures and it has by far the most movement receptors to stimulate the brain. The second, because it contains nearly 300 more mechanoreptive input than anywhere else in our body and has a direct bearing on the sensory input into our brain and overall body health.

These findings have been confirmed by clinical studies performed by both chiropractors and medical doctors. In fact, after examining thousands of children, one medical researcher concluded and I quote. Hold on…. I want to try this cool feature here for an effect…. Here we go… I quote.

“observations of motor development and manual control of the occipito-atlanto-axial (upper neck) joint complex should be obligatory after every difficult birth.”

He also states that the upper neck.
“should be examined and, if required, specifically adjusted.”

Cool. Okay, got that out of my system.
Here’s the bottom line, Don’t allow just any provider to adjust your spine; a specific adjustment is the ONLY way to correct a subluxation, and a Doctor of Chiropractic is the only one trained to perform it properly and safely.

Not only does proper spinal movement increase overall health, decrease dis-ease and improve the ability to create feelings of happiness and well-being, it also helps to reduce pain and discomfort and to diminish feelings of anxiety and stress.

When it comes right down to it, we are creatures designed for virtually constant movement stuck living in a society that involves almost constant sitting. We are also clearly intended to have correctly moved, and aligned spines and many of our citizens are unknowingly walking around with subluxation in their spines because they have never had a spinal health exam from a chiropractor.

So let me talk about good Spinal Hygiene.

To be blunt, most Americans in the 18th century had no concept of dentistry and certainly no understanding of cavities and the need for oral hygiene. Everyone had bad breath, so why should they brush their teeth?

The truth is, for the first one hundred years or so in dentistry, no one practiced oral hygiene. The people did not brush or floss their teeth, and it led to HUGE epidemics that today no expert denies. In fact, over two hundred years later 98% of Americans visit a dentist and practice good oral hygiene.

Today we have saved Americans from numerous dental health related epidemics that even caused death. It was not easy. Finally with the invention of Pepsodent in 1944, a chemical added to the toothpaste, the manufacturers found a way to cause a chemical addiction to our brains when it was added to the toothpaste. This addition caused addiction, and more people started brushing their teeth. (If this bothers you, I may add that processed foods and junk foods have similar additives to those foods for the same purpose today. In fact, it is Big Food business and an important strategy to marketing.) yup, and it’s legal.

It is interesting to note here that your grandparents will remember a time when their Medical Doctor warned them not to have their teeth scraped for tartar because they said no evidence existed for it and the cliché of the time, was that “the dentist was only taking your money.”

Did you know that?

Now, let’s contrast dentistry to chiropractic. Since most experts no nothing about the spinal movement patterns and the function of brain and body circuitry that spinal joint motion has we suffer an epidemic in America. An epidemic of chronic disease related to the Agricultural Revolution and sedentary movement patterns that may even prove to explain why the modern human brain has shrunk when compared to the anthropologist findings of our ancestors just one century ago before the invent of the automobile.

What else is alarming? Just twenty years ago, China used to be an example to researchers for health. Today, they are the most obese and rode with the most type II diabetes in the world! In less than twenty years they went from thin, fit, and nutritious people to the fattest, sedentary and nutrient depleted people in the world.

What was different in the last 20 years? Yes, the food played a role. However, if you visited China twenty years ago, when they were healthy and fit, you would have hardly seen an automobile because they walked, or biked everywhere. They were generating lots of movement and spinal joint movement that were giving them their terrific levels of health.

Like dentistry of the 1800’s, Americans are suffering from a massive epidemic, and they don’t understand how essential it is for our overall health of our brain and body to reestablish movement in their lives, especially spinal movement.

Dentistry diagnosed and treated cavities. Chiropractic diagnoses and treats subluxation. In the summer of 2015, a survey was published by Palmer College of Chiropractic. That survey showed an increase of chiropractic services to Americans. When I graduated over a decade ago, only around 14% of Americans were seeing chiropractors. Today, nearly 50% of Americans are visiting chiropractors for the diagnosis and treatment of subluxation.

Who would ask a medical doctor to look into their mouth to diagnosis and treat their cavities, a dental problem? No one. They are not trained to do so.

Why would anyone ask a medical doctor to diagnosis and treat a subluxation, a chiropractic problem? Think about it.

The fact is each moment you delay having your spines checked is no different from living in the 1800’s and refusing dentistry and not taking soap showers. You got bad breath, contagious-disease-promoting body odor, and impaired brain function due to sedentary spinal joints and that is disgusting!

What is the absolute scary fact? How much more important is your brain and body circuitry than the tartar or the cavities in your teeth?

Don’t delay anymore. You have got horrible posture, sedentary spinal joints, a delayed brain development and a little overweight, and it is disgusting! Got it?

Stop letting provider discrimination, which began in 1910 and still very much present keep you from having your spines checked by a trained chiropractor. Also, get outside and get the family outdoors and moving around. Everyone will feel better, think better, and have a healthier spine and increased overall health. Join the almost 50% of Americans who have made the decision to add chiropractic as part of their routine preventative maintenance health program and enjoy a much greater quality of life. All human beings deserve an incredible quality of life, and proper spinal movement is an integral part of this; especially in our children. Motion is lotion, the movement is essential to life, and chiropractic delivers. So get out there and get those spines moving!

Aligned bright white teeth and an aligned functioning spine make excellent hygiene in the next millennium and beyond… Timeless strategies. That is the purpose of this training… Now you know the how to.

The very first thing you need to do is to have a thorough chiropractic evaluation and if clinically needed an x-ray of your spine. You and I simply are not able to move like a hunter-gatherer even though our genome requires it of us. Supplementing with chiropractic adjustments along with the essential requirements I am revealing in this training , managing our five pillars of a dynamic health is the only evidence-informed solution for human beings so we can lighten up, move better, and live fuller.

The Black Plague killed 30% of Europe, and it was predominantly caused by poor body hygiene. The Chronic Illness Plague is killing 80% of the globe, and the major contributing factor is due to sedentary lifestyle conditions including poor spinal hygiene. Causing our spinal neural organ to diminish our power generator to the brain and body. As a result, over 80% of civilization now suffer with chronic disease, including our children.

While we have not gotten to the full plan I have laid out in this show, you can start your chiropractic care at any time.

Lighten up, move better and live fuller.

Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.

Frustrating isn’t it? What are we suppose to believe?

Welcome to Dynamism Biohack, my name is Dr. Matt Hammett Wellness & Nutrition Expert, Lifestyle Trainer and Movement Enthusiast. In each week I’m going share with you how to make the right nutritious choices despite conflicting expert opinions where I help you to discover how to unlock your inner aborigine or your inner greatness. Thank you for spending this time with me today, so let’s get into the training.

LET ME EXPLAIN AN EXAMPLE OF THIS spinning science, continuing our story with Carter and oxytocin. If you recall earlier, I indicated a bit about oxytocin and autism. What happened when spinning science got their hands on this linear-pathway methodology and decided to increase the levels of oxytocin artificially in infant rats with autism?

Keep in mind; they theorized that adding levels of oxytocin to infants earlier in life would make the babies more socially apt later in life, but what happened surprised them. It did not surprise Carter at all. What happened?

Carter and her research partner Karen Bales recently completed a study in voles that were meant to mimic the effect of giving autistic children a few squirts of oxytocin while they were young. At first glance, the treatment on the voles seemed to work, but only while they were young. As the voles are aged, their behaviors turned away from regular social prairie vole society life. The males had a difficult time finding a mate. You see, those early doses of oxytocin made them less, not more, social as adults.

Carter believes these phenomena happened because the initial doses are desensitizing the normal receptors on the young voles. Then, as they age, the receptors become less able to read the normal levels of oxytocin. This line of research is where it gets very downright personal for us. Carter can recall how rare it was for doctors to inject mothers in labor with the synthetic form of oxytocin, Pitocin. In fact, it only happened about 10% of deliveries!

In case you are unaware, today, Pitocin is almost always given to laboring moms in the United States today; in fact, around 90% of the time. Many mothers and scientists are wondering what we did to our babies by allowing the doctors to give us that.

The worst of it all is the fact that mothers usually have no choice; they get a drugged birth unless previously discussed (which is even sometimes ignored)!

Doctors argue that the drug is for the mother, not the baby. However, we know that this same molecule goes to the brain seconds after a mist of it is in the air. I do not see that as a valid argument when the baby in utero is intimately connected to the source.

Carter and other scientists are troubled by this because the results from their studies showed up in those prairie voles only when they became adults.

It was not until very recently that their fears came in a more recent report in The New England Journal of Medicine correlating an increase in the incidence of autism in humans with receiving Pitocin during delivery. If we venture back a moment when I discussed Carter’s early prairie vole experiments, in that the neuropeptides in question caused monogamy, social bonding, sexual attraction and solid parenting, it would be great to end it there. However, what happens when we spin science? We venture from the rat lab into human experimentation.

HUMAN EXPERIMENTATION GONE MAD

Science magazine reported on an adult human experiment in Amsterdam headed by Carsten De Dreu, which used a nasal dose of oxytocin and assessed the effects with an innocent game of gambling for money: “Compared with men who got a saline spray, those who sniffed oxytocin behaved more altruistically to members of their own team… they were more likely to preemptively punish competitors…”

In a 2011 study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, “De Dreu’s team found that oxytocin increased favoritism toward subjects’ own ethnic group (native Dutch men) on a series of tasks and thought experiments done on a computer, and in some situations the treated men exhibited more prejudice against other groups (Germans and Middle Easterners, in this case)”.

Carter noticed that once the injected infant vole reached puberty, the male became a lethal weapon. He will fight to the death any intruders, while at the same time nurturing his young and devoted mate.

In other words, oxytocin does something more than giving us ‘feel good’ chemicals. It makes us protective, which, from an evolutionary adaptive point of view, means it can make us violent to survive the threat.

Not trusting others outside our social environment is the flip side of the social bonding that allows us to trust those closest to us.

The evolutionary biological debate has much rested on the idea of individual fitness and a discrete unit of genes, the only group in which evolution can act.

On the contrary, social and behavior studies on ants, termites, prairie voles and humans came to ripen the idea of group fitness or community cooperation. Behavioral studies raised the idea of community rather than individual selection, although still debated.

Genes do have a role, but so does our environment. The “yin and yang” of human physiology is in the balance by a Dynamic interaction of biomolecules and neuropeptides that science cannot even begin to scratch the surface of. Nevertheless, sometimes it is to our advantage to be selfish and seek individual time, and at other times, to do what is best for the group. It seems to coincide as selfish behavior and altruism, or the “yin and the yang.” Both have their advantages in evolutionary terms, and we are wired to express both.

Our human connection with one another helps us cope with stress. The ability to adapt to an ever-changing environment gets its control by the same hormones and areas of the brain that enable us to survive stress. We experience a sense of resiliency in the face of stressors when we are in communal support, rather than when we feel isolated or lonely. Some fascinating research demonstrated that lesions in tissues of animals heal more quickly when living in the community than in isolation.

Drs. Susan Carter and Stephen Porges wrote a report for a journal, entitled, “The Biochemistry of Love: an Oxytocin Hypothesis,” stating that “the protective effects of positive sociality seem to rely on the same cocktail of hormones that carry a biological message of ‘love’ throughout the body.” For example, the molecules associated with love have restorative powers, “including the ability to heal a ‘broken heart.’ Oxytocin receptors are expressed in the heart, and precursors for oxytocin seem to be crucial for the development of the fetal heart. Oxytocin exerts protective and restorative effects, in part through its capacity to convert undifferentiated stem cells into cardiomyocytes. Oxytocin can facilitate adult neurogenesis and tissue repair, especially after a stressful experience.”

Oxytocin has direct anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, found in vitro models of atherosclerosis. T“The heart seems to rely on oxytocin as part of a normal process of protection and self-healing.”

In this context, it is best to end this chapter in the common words from The Biochemistry of Love, of Drs. Sue Carter and Stephen Porges:

“Social engagement helps us to cope with stress. The same hormones and areas of the brain that increase the capacity of the body to survive stress also enable us to better adapt to an ever-changing social and physical environment. Individuals with strong emotional support and relationships are more resilient in the face of stressors than those who feel isolated or lonely. Lesions in bodily tissues, including the brain, heal more quickly in animals that are living socially compared with those in isolation. The protective effects of positive sociality seem to rely on the same cocktail of hormones that carry a biological message of ‘love’ throughout the body”.

As only one example, the molecules associated with love have restorative properties, including the ability to literally heal a ‘broken heart,’ as well as those aforementioned.

“The heart seems to rely on oxytocin as part of a normal process of protection and self-healing. A life without love is not a life fully lived. Although research into mechanisms through which love protects us against stress and disease is in its infancy, this knowledge will ultimately increase our understanding of the way that our emotions have an impact on health and disease. We have much to learn about love and much to learn from love”.

Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.

Frustrating isn’t it? What are we suppose to believe?

Welcome to Dynamism Biohack, my name is Dr. Matt Hammett Wellness & Nutrition Expert, Lifestyle Trainer and Movement Enthusiast. In each week I’m going share with you how to make the right nutritious choices despite conflicting expert opinions where I help you to discover how to unlock your inner aborigine or your inner greatness. Thank you for spending this time with me today, so let’s get into the training.

SUE CARTER IS A RESEARCHER WHO DEVOTED over 40 years of research into the effects of one single molecule which she believes is at the heart and soul of human behavior (and that of other species).

This chemical, according to her research, is the bonding agent that not only indigenous children receive for their first four or five years of life; their mothers and fathers possess it, as well. The agent is oxytocin. Oxytocin and its close relative, vasopressin, are the biomolecules that perform a variety of vital functions over a long period of time, predating humans and even mammals.

Oxytocin can be called the hormone of love. One function of oxytocin is to stimulate cells in the heart muscle to release a chemical messenger called “atrial natriuretic peptide.” In other words, oxytocin makes the heart capable of love.

Oxytocin molecules are molecules of love; they are ultimately the neurotransmitters of those warm feelings that make us feel relaxed, kind and helpful toward others. Now, oxytocin is not the molecular equivalent of love. It has a complex neurochemical system which allows the body to adapt to emotional situations. The neural networks in the brain allow social interactions between the delicate structures within the brain and the autonomic nervous system in a changing and dynamic environment during the lifespan of an individual.

Another biomolecule associated with the bond is vasopressin which has shared functions, but not the same actions as oxytocin. To try to explain the vast difference would be time-consuming because they have many components of a part of integrated neural networks with many intersectional points throughout biology.

Evolutionary biologists believe that vasopressin is an ancient chemical, which existed when all life was contained primarily in the water or oceans. This beginning makes its fundamental properties necessary to regulate the flow of water from inside to out of the organisms. The regulation effect of vasopressin’s most important function began a millenia ago, and is still present today, even among the terrestrials, including humans.

In the late 1970s, Carter became known for her research in characterizing the role of oxytocin and vasopressin in the neurobiology of monogamy and love. She first began her work, not with humans, but prairie voles, a mouse-like species from the grasslands in North American ecosystems. Prairie voles were interesting to biologists; especially evolutionary biologists because they seemed to be going through a reproductive crash and burn cycle. They had population explosions followed by population crashes, and researchers wanted to find out why.

An exciting discovery amongst this particular species was that they were social. This particular interest in social behavior came in observation amongst their little vole society. Researchers noticed something different and an uncommon practice among mammals. They paired each other up and had a one-lifetime partner, a bond between a single male and a single female.

Researchers theorized how this relationship occurred, both from an evolutionary biologist’s perspective and a genetic one. For Carter, she knew it was social interactions that are driving aspects of behavior, even for the prairie voles.

It was not until the 1980s, with the advent of new techniques and medical tools for analyzing DNA that the depth of this story finally emerged. Before these discoveries, most researchers blamed genetics for this trait of the voles, and even labeled it the “selfish gene,” meaning that evolution selects for genes that maintain themselves and so selects for individuals that ensure the perpetuation of their genes over those of others.

However, DNA analysis painted a very different picture. Go Figure!

They discovered that the outward appearance of monogamous of prairie voles might be the evidence of the genes of vole pups, demonstrated when different male partners were introduced, and about half of the pups were not of their genetic makeup. Moreover, this discovery proved true across the animal kingdom, especially among birds, for which monogamy is far more widespread.

Let me clarify this finding; it is suggesting that the mates prefer a marriage of convenience, but they are not sexually monogamous. What this evidence means is that we are not describing sexual behavior; we are witnessing an adaptation based on reproduction. In other words, it represents a social adaptation that is indeed useful in ensuring the next generation. The male vole chooses to stay with the female for life. Even though half of the litter does not biologically belong to him, he decides to remain as if all the pups biologically belong to him; it seems to make stable social arrangements for the community of the prairie voles and most of the animal kingdom.

Monogamy is not a physical attribute, but a behavior trait. The evidence was saying that this behavior was innate and not learned. Of course, no one knows for certain, because scientists are just unsure.

Carter simply noticed the vole society started to resemble that of humans and does not understand where that attribution originated. She believes that the voles have a social system resembling humans, often noting in her research about long-lasting bonds, two parents taking care of young, incest avoidance, and extended families: just like a human society.

Monogamy is an interesting trend that is common among all social animals, even bugs. Most bees go through their life without mating, which is right for the prairie voles. Carter calls this stage of life a “prepubertal” stage, although biologists have discovered that with the right mate, that intimate spark could immediately change things.

Carter and other biologists have found that each half of the young couple finds the other by chance while they are still in that prepubertal state, but the encounter itself triggers a response in each that looks very much like going through puberty. The male especially is transformed in a matter of hours from a clueless state, to a focused partnership that lasts for life.

Carter’s research discovered that the biomolecule responsible for this transformation was oxytocin in the female and vasopressin in the male, or, the “binding chemicals.”

So what are these THE BINDING CHEMICALS
Today there are hundreds of laboratories worldwide advancing the work of Carter, focused on this one single chemical. One of the early moments of this research with the binding chemicals involved giving oxytocin to species such as rats.

Males of this species do not stick around after the kids are born, helping out mom. In other words, these males are inclined to be just what they are… rats. However, the oxytocin-dosed rats adopted monogamous habits, including taking care of their young.
This experiment was also done on their nearest relative, the prairie voles, and found that the oxytocin dose enhanced their brains to feel the effects of the oxytocin with the same behavior shift as the rats.

To date, oxytocin research has discovered that these biomolecules have a role in birth, lactation, and even sexual attraction. It also showed a role in bonding between mothers and young rats and sheep.

In the book The Moral Molecule, the author looks at this chemical and discusses its implication for autism research. Keep in mind; autism is characterized by a lack of social ability that seems at the center of oxytocin. Oxytocin enhances capacity to recognize faces and other social skills like understanding emotions.
A 2013 issue of Science magazine jumped on the oxytocin bandwagon with this article:

“Few substances produced by the human body have inspired as much hoopla as oxytocin. Recent newspapers articles have credited this hormone with promoting the kind of teamwork that wins World Cup soccer championships and suggested that supplements of the peptide could have prevented the dalliances and subsequent downfall of a, particularly high-ranking U.S. intelligence official. Although the breathless media coverage often goes too far, it reflects a genuine and infectious excitement among many scientists about the hormone’s role in social behavior”.

Well, I hope you are smarter than to go down this road of frenzy Big Pharma because we have gone down this road toward the allure of the magic bullet before with their rat studies of single pathways solutions. Even Carter feels that making a drug out of oxytocin is “arrogant and stupid.”

Dr. John Ratey, M.D., author of Go Wild, tells us that vasopressin, the other biomolecule, is what gives us the ability to persist during hunting and, as David Carrier explains, is why humans were born to run. In fact, modern Bushmen still do persistence hunting in the desert; they often do it without drinking water due to vasopressin. Even today, we can observe groups of men who hunt and women who go on daylong gathering trips; they take nothing more than an ostrich eggshell full of water to last the whole day, under the desert sun.

The bushmen would run full days during a hunt in scorching heat, on an amount of water that some people advise modern runners to drink every half hour.
The data is demonstrating to us that the advice to drink lots of water during a run may be wrong. South African researcher Tim Noakes showed that runners who were the most dehydrated after marathon-length races tended to win. Of course, I would not recommend not drinking water during a race because of Noakes’ research but use common sense.

Interestingly, it demonstrated that no one in his studies suffered medical problems from dehydration, while those who drank the recommended amount of water or sports drinks often suffered severe consequences from too much water; some even died.

In the desert, the Bushmen were able to conserve water in their body, because during extreme levels of heat, a cascade of biomolecules (especially oxytocin and vasopressin) is triggered; this causes the runner’s body to conserve water.

Perhaps Noakes’ research suggests that the deaths in modern-day marathons are the result of our thinking that we need to stay hydrated during the race. They did not realize that you could not override the body’s evolutionary design.

I hope you figured out the bottom line by now. Instead of trying to use rat science, and a theory conceived by single-pathways solutions for a synthetic oxytocin or vasopressin designed in a nasal spray by Big Pharma and prescribed by your medical doctor, you have an innate option to bypass the dangerous side effects caused after they attempt to extrapolate data from a rat and suggest a synthetic dose out of a magician’s rabbit hat. You can simply exercise. Do you see that?

Best of all, going for a run does not cost a thing. Not a thing. Mother Nature is at her best, and it is free.

MOVEMENT+BONDING = EMOTIONAL WELLBEING

There are many benefits of exercise, but for our story, we are discussing movement, social bonding, and emotional well-being.
By the way, when we engage in this type of exercise, we engage in just the right balance of oxytocin and vasopressin (along with an entire host of biomolecules that modern medicine does not even know the first thing about).

Carter and other researchers in voles discovered that the monogamy effects were triggered not just by oxytocin, but by the right balance of oxytocin and vasopressin. That balance is species dependent, like most of the biochemistry of species!

In other words, for your Big Pharma lovers, there is no straightforward, dose-dependent response to oxytocin. There is no rule that says more oxytocin yields better behavior or sexual attraction (or whatever ecstasy you wish to achieve).

Oxytocin and vasopressin are molecules that carry a signal of many functions; there are receptors in the brain unique to each molecule.
The number and efficacy of these receptors have much to do with how the brain reads and accomplishes the effects necessary to get these neuropeptides working to regulate the mind.

Meadow male voles, which innately do not behave in a monogamous state like their cousins the prairie voles, were synthetically engineered to behave in monogamous fashion in a laboratory for research. However, they were not able to do this simply by increasing the levels of oxytocin.

The scientists genetically engineered the receptors in the brain, which amplified the levels of oxytocin.

Oxytocin is a universal chemical invertebrate life, but differences among species behaviors are due in part to variations in receptors, not levels of oxytocin. This line of research has led scientists to theorize that this is why the trait of monogamy is not a neat, linear progression through evolutionary family trees, but rather, sprouts up from time to time. Genes that build these receptors switch on and off like light switches.

Let me tell you; this pathway is just one example of millions of others I could find. Like I said, health is a continuum, and it is Dynamic! What looks great on paper in research is NEVER the reality, for the simple fact that everything we are works in harmony together and that Dynamic interplay is as numerous as the stars in the sky!

Carter, who is considered the world’s expert on just these two biomolecules, has spent more than 40 years and even inspired hundreds of laboratories filled with thousands of Ph.D.s who are studying just these two biomolecules because of the fortune Big Pharma may achieve from this drug. Can you understand why it is so much smarter to invest in research that mimics Mother Nature and adopts a lifestyle from human beings not suffering from major chronic illness? Do see why the answer lies in prevention? It is a strategy we can all follow, not because we extrapolated data from prairie voles and other rats, but because healthy humans have been doing it for thousands of years.

Find out what they are doing, and copy that way of life. I think at this point in this training, most get that, but I am still surprised at those that just do not get it!

We have people so caught up in the magic bullet pill theory, even educators and doctors, yet to date, none of these magic bullets can cure a thing; except for antibiotics. And those have been overused causing superbugs that no longer respond to antibiotics.

In any case, back to our story. Yes, exercise or sexual attraction to another triggers spikes in oxytocin, and genes do play a role. In part, genes control the number of receptors. That idea is why Carter is maddened by the current simplistic line of research, which says all we need to do is spray a bit of synthetic oxytocin up your nose to provoke a lifetime of wellness.

Her causation is based on valid research, and again this line of Big Pharma thinking or spinning what scientists are doing to what Big Pharma may pressure someone into is a huge controversy and happens in science every day!

Lighten up, move better and live fuller.
