Ever wondered what it's like to train like a pro football player?This week, we interviewed Jesse Ackerman who is no stranger to hard work.  He is currently the Head Strength & Conditioning Coach with the Atlanta Falcons, former Assistant Strength & Condition Coach for UT Austin, University of Florida, and Iowa State University, Certified NASM-PEC, NASM-CES, and Trainer for the 1st Battalion, 75 Ranger Regiment (just to name a few). His stance and style on training pro-athletes and other high-performance individuals is unique to say the least. The level of passion he brings to his craft, his trainees, and to himself is a rare sight."The brain is the greatest limiting factor" he explains while describing that hard work can actually be fun.He has helped rehabilitate athletes, has countless stories of overcoming career-ending injuries to come out the other side a more humble, hopeful, awe-inspiring being. Listen as he explains his system for training pro athletes, and how that system can apply to anyone looking for excellence in their craft. It's not "working out"... It's recharging .ANNOUNCEMENT: This Friday is Dr. Seeds' Performance Injury Repair/Recovery & Body Optimization Live Stream Course!

Eyesight is one of the most coveted senses that we often take for granted. Imagine-- living with eyesight until your college years, only to be told that that you have a rare condition that causes you to lose your vision progressively with no hope for a cure...That's what Victor Mifsud heard. It's hard to even imagine the impending doom of losing your vision. There are two ways to deal with it - don't, and fall into a deep depression; or do, and... Well that story is still being written.Victor did both. He fell into a depression, but came out the other side a stronger, wiser, more hopeful being. He is a voracious reader, researcher, and scientist in his own right. He decided he wasn't going to take "no cure" for an answer, and took his health into his own hands.What he's been able to accomplish has his vision doctors scratching their heads going 'how is this even possible'... You have to listen to his story. Or watch his documentary on Itunes - My Neuroplastic Adventure him on social @blindbiohackerJoin his vision summit:

I was a big gym rat a few years ago and lost about 40lbs due to not being able to work out over the last few years. My goals are to be able to get back in the gym and calm my nervous system down. I’ve improved a ton over the last few years as I was have been bed ridden at times, but symptoms like fatigue, post exertional malaise, POTS symptoms and over active nervous system still linger to a lesser degree than before. Thymosin Beta-4 has gotten rid of my fibromyalgia symptoms about 95% which is amazing. TA-1 and BPC 157 have not been good for me even at low doses. Also tried nasal version of Selank and ARA-290 to no success. Anything else I could try?Question 2:Hello, I am interested in Epitalon for sleep primarily, telomeres, etc. I would love to hear any and all feedback.Question 3:Hi Dr seeds. I listened to your podcast about back pain and with the athlete with the neck problem, thanks it was very informative and gives me hope in healing my own injuries. Do you recommend any peptides for lumbar disc herniations? I have a problem at l5/S1.I understand these are more tricky to heal as they are avascular.JOIN US FOR THE SSRP + LEUKEMIA AND LYMPHOMA SOCIETY'S CANCER RESEARCH SEMINAR!
Another week another AMA!MEDICAL DISCLAIMER: The content on this podcast is not intended to serve as a diagnosis or prescription for listeners, but rather for educational purposes only. Always consult with your physician before administering any of the therapies discussed here.Questions Answered:Question 1-Hi William I hope you are well, I use my sons Facebook sometimes, he has a serious neurological condition that head traumas are involved with, Lyme and mold exposure, anyways, we really need some serious help and was curious what your thoughts might be?  my sons brain and spine are “stuck on fire” he says, and he’s got muscle weakness, trouble swallowing speaking etc we don’t know what to do anymoreQuestion 2-If using GHK-cu for injury healing would there be any benefits to injection closer to the injury site like with BPC?Question 3-The general consensus among experts seems to be injecting local provides no additional benefit unless using ultrasound guided injections.But anecdotally I felt like local injections helped accelerate healing for nagging shoulder injury 🤷🏼‍♂️.Let’s ask the expert 😁.William SeedsQuestion 4 - Dr. Seeds talks of monitoring IGF-1 levels so I was wondering what initial labs are done before beginning peptides. Standard labs? Hormone levels? Inflammatory markers? I know this is not your area but is there a resource or mentor you can direct me to. Trying to find the resource I need to get educated and prepared to start prescribing these peptides.Question 5 - Have you seen or heard about this. Not one Doc so far has a clue about these Domination spots(I call them) that appeared on my back Jan 2017. When I garden, i have to spray white vinegar on my back change top, or hop in pool and soap down or they get a red circle around the brown they get angry. They were faded again, but if I'm around any toxin mold or get over heated/hot (and I am in Florida ha), they flareup. I'm think it has to be mast cell reaction from over stimulating the immune system & flaring up inflammation if I over push my energy envelope.. Eboo Blood cleaning stopped that for 7 months bc the brown circles/spots. Very attractive. LOL. It itches if I get hot or sweaty. I think once I can get the viral load down some and inflammation. Then things might calm down and reset. , Very Grateful! One final time for our lawyers:MEDICAL DISCLAIMER: The content on this podcast is not intended to serve as a diagnosis or prescription for listeners, but rather for educational purposes only.

This episode is a tough story about a close friend of ours, who injured his back in his early twenty's, never recovered, dealt with chronic back pain through most of his post-college life, and what happened when he did something about it.These stories sound too good to be true. It seems as if we've been programed to think that medical recoveries are:1. TAKE A LONG TIME2. TAKE A LOT OF PAIN3. Recovery is temporary...This may be true for temporary bandaid fixes like asprin or other treatments, but it's not the only solution.If you're dealing with chronic pain, you're not alone. It's getting in the way of you life, your loved ones, and likely your career. Here's one story where that won't ever be the case again.Email info[at]seeds[dot]md for any questions.
In this episode we interview one of Dr. Seeds long-time friend and patient - Former olympic gold medal swimmer turned super mom, Diana Munz.Her story is one that many mom's might struggle with-- having no time to stop because her kids always come first. But when an accident happened that left her unable to move her neck without zaps of pain shooting down her spine, Diana knew she had to nip this in the bud.This is just one story of a former athlete who was used to working through the pain, realized she no longer has to do that, and make the leap to do something about it.What a great story for moms and athletes. Have any questions for Dr. Seeds or for Diana Munz?

Dr. Seeds is quite active all over the web - youtube, peptide groups, reddit, and of course, our own emails answering questions about peptide therapy, to providing information to  health issues that have no clear cut answers.There was no way to organize this into topical episodes so we made an Ask Me Anything episode instead.Here we answer the following questions:What kinds of things do you recommend for the folks on the west coast dealing with poor air quality from the wildfires?What kinds of peptide therapies for Ehlers Danlos Syndrome?How about adrenal fatigue, what's your recommendation and stance?Not feeling the effects of Dihexa, what do you recommend?Will ARA-290 increase COVID-19 risk due to decreased cytokines IL6, and IL-12?Any recommendations for atrial fibrillation?I wish we had more time, but we promise to do another one of these episodes.
