Do you know what your continuous glucose levels are? Most people don’t, so don’t feel bad! But, did you know keeping track of your glucose levels can reveal many important things about your daily diet and habits? It is possible and that’s why we are going to dive into in this episode of the Complete Human podcast.How we do this is through were a Continuous Glucose Monitor. While many people think of these monitors for those with diabetes exclusively, they have become more mainstream and are now used by those who are serious about understanding what’s going on within their body and how what they are eating and doing daily is effecting their overall health. One of the things we've been talking about for years is the value of diagnostic testing. While there's no singular test out there to really quantify true metabolic health, there are certain things that we can look at time and time again as kind of precursors to metabolic dysfunction, mitochondrial dysfunction, and insulin resistance. One of those is a continuous glucose monitor.We have both been wearing our levels, which is a Continuous Glucose Monitor that attaches to an app. By wearing this, we've been able to actually not only track our glucose on a consistent basis, but also look at the data as it pertains to certain food activity.So in this particular episode, we have the pleasure of interviewing Dr. Taylor Sittler, who's the head of research and development over at Levels and we really get into the weeds on metabolic health, what is contributing to metabolic dysfunction, and how we can overcome and avoid these issues through measuring and understanding our glucose levels.Levels is currently running a closed beta program with a waitlist of over 160,000 people.

What the heck is regenerative farming? Why the heck should you prioritize regenerative farmed meat? These are the two questions we discuss in-depth in this episode of the Complete Human podcast.Personally, we are fed up with people believing cows are bad for your health and the earth.

And, we are fed up by people being under-educated when it comes to the meat they are/aren’t eating. In this episode, we not only give you a clear explanation of what regenerative agriculture is, but we also debunk counting myths and explain why regenerative farming is the key to saving humans and the planet. What we discuss:7:00 - Why regenerative farming is returning to the way Mother Earth intended 11:00 - Water scarcity 13:00 - Sequestering carbon 15:00 - Nutrient density18:00 - Is Grass-fed/Pasture Raised the same?19:30 - Why there is no space on this earth for conventional meat23:00 - How do you shop for regenerative meat?Get regenerative farmed meat brought right to your doorstep:
Are we supposed to be vegans or carnivores? Dr. Paul Saladino has a very unique answer to that question.Since the dawn of time, the food chain has been divided into two very distinct groups – carnivores and herbivores. The herbivores ate the plants and the carnivores ate the herbivores. We were really able to see this distinction in the dinosaurs over 65 million years ago. The dinosaurs died out, eventually paving the way for man, the pesky little hybrid of a creature who consumed both plant and animal. The study of man’s diet through the ages is a topic of much debate in scientific circles. Did we flourish as meat eaters or are we meant to be herbivores. Outside of the scientific debate, there is a cultural clash between those who oppose eating animals, and those that believe that our greatest path to health lies in consuming meat.In this episode of The Complete Human Podcast, Janna and Evan discuss the Carnivore Diet with Dr. Paul Saladino, author of the Carnivore Code. Dr. Saladino discusses man’s origins as hunters, and how eating animals made us human. He discusses in great detail plant toxins of all types, where they are found, and how to avoid these toxins.Dr. Saladino brings a very unique position to the conversation of dietary supplements and why some may be doing more harm than good.Find more from Complete Human:Articles: @completehumanShop: store.completehuman.comYoutube: Complete Human

What the heck is metabolic flexibility? In our opinion, it is one of the most important things we need to focus on when striving to be a healthier human. Essentially, metabolic flexibility is our body's ability to utilize different food sources at different times and switch between our different metabolic processes quickly. How does our body utilize food? Can you deviate from your typical diet without it destroying you? Can you gain some weight and easily lose it? Can you go hours without eating? If the answer to these is no, it’s time you focus on becoming metabolically flexible. And in this episode of the Complete Human podcast, we educate you on how to do it. What we discuss:1:00 - What is metabolic flexibility?3:00 - Signs of being metabolic inflexible.5:00 - Ways to become more metabolic flexible7:45 - Biomarkers and lab tests for seeing if you are metabolically flexible. 10:00 - Eating the right foods for your body and activity levelsFollow us on Instagram: education clips on becoming a Complete Human on YouTube:

Have you used nootropics before? They are quickly becoming mainstream in the biohacking – or what we like to call it, bio-optimizing – community.

Do you have the tendency to only seek out the information that favors your existing beliefs? If yes, you might be guilty of confirmation bias...which could be very problematic especially in COVID times. In this latest episode of Complete Human, Evan DeMarco picks apart the infamous Dr. Peter McCullough, an American cardiologist widely discredited by the scientific community for spreading misinformation on COVID-19.

He shares 2 simple ways to get past confirmation bias and save ourselves from making ignorant, lethal mistakes. What is discussed: 1:56 – Everything that's wrong about Dr. Peter McCullough's COVID-19 claims 4:05 – Scientific fact #1: You have a 2.34% greater chance of COVID-19 reinfection if you don't have the vaccine5:35 – Scientific fact#2: People who are overweight are more susceptible to reinfection6:03 – What is confirmation bias & why is it harmful? 8:00 – Can we trust Dr. McCullough's references? 9:10 – Is the Omicron variant the beginning of an end for COVID?10:00 – 2 Effective Ways to Get Past Confirmation Bias 10:25 – Does new media enlighten us or mislead us too?

His journey involves a lot of self-experimentation and costly medications, until an 8-dollar pair of red glasses gave him the best sleep he’d never had for a long time. Here, he shares how those blue blocking glasses changed his life. He also explains how the different light spectrums affect our physiology and why our modern lifestyle calls for a red-light supplementation, especially with the alarming Vitamin D deficiency in the world today. Scott Chaverri is the CEO and founder of Mito Red Light, a health and wellness company committed to producing the highest quality, cost-efficient red-light therapy products to the market.

Imagine a world where using Nicotine as a brain stimulant had positive effects on our overall cognitive health. Sounds crazy right? Well the research has been done and proven that using a minuscule amount of Nicotine, alongside Methylene Blue, can push us to reach our greatest potential.In this episode of the Complete Human podcast, we’ll be talking about brain health, brain stimulation and the elements of optimizing brain function with Dr. Scott Sherr. Dr. Scott  takes us on a journey through the history of using Methylene Blue and how it was used in World War 2 to prevent fungal infections like trench foot as well as a long history link to Malaria as it was used as a strong anti-viral, anti-fungal as well as an antibacterial. Plus, Dr. Scott also explains how  pharmaceutical grade Nicotine, given in small doses, improves our focus, memory and tension as it is a neuroprotective stimulant. He then explains the studies done on Parkinson's and Alzheimer's patients and how nicotine helped with their cognitive tension. Dr. Scott Sherr is a Board Certified Internal Medicine Physician from Troscriptions, formulating pharmaceutical graded products that are precision dosed and are all physician formulated, trial and tested.
