Diabetes, Heart Disease, Hypertension – Oil-free Vegan Diet, Anti-Aging

Nick: You’re looking at these therapies, you’re
putting them into practice, you’re discarding what doesn’t work, you’re embracing what works. You’re a prolific author, you share this information. Now you’re getting a chance share it with
my audience. And we have a lot of doctors who tune into
our YouTube channel and also just practitioners and educated people. So what advice, the most important three tips
that you want to give to prolong not just the length of life but more importantly the
quality of life? What should they do? Respondent: The most important thing is diet
by far. And I adhere to a vegan diet. Nick: Wow. Respondent: And I like John McDougall’s approach,
I like Dean Ornish’s approach, I like Colin Campbell’s approach and I like your approach. And I totally agree with that. I know there are people that don’t. And I think that we’re meant to eat meat but
as John McDougall says, we do not have any protein and fat sensors on our tongues. I don’t think humans are meant to eat meat
and fat. We have seminal vesicles. We’re the only carnivores that have seminal
vesicles. All the herbivores have seminal vesicles and
the carnivores don’t. Nick: Explain seminal vesicles. Respondent: It’s an anatomic finding that
is not present in carnivores. The seminal vesicles are the vesicles that
sperm has collected from the prostate and it’s right near the testicle. Nick: But how does that relate to your diet? Respondent: Well, it’s just something to prove
that humans are not meant to eat meat. Every veterinarian knows what a fish eats
and what a horse eats and what a dog eats. They teach them that in school but they don’t
teach medical students what humans eat. And there is a human diet, and it doesn’t
involve meat, fish or chicken or fat or animal fat. Nick: Bonobos monkeys, 97.4 genetic match
to humans, they’re all — Respondent: Vegetarians. Nick: — essentially vegans. Respondent: And gorillas. Look how big they are. Nick: And they are out [0:02:12] [Indiscernible]
so they’re only monkey that actually stands upright and they have so many characteristics
that are so close. We look at their foraging habits and it’s
tubers and fruits and vegetables and everything that we know we should eat. The challenge, I think, with most people is
not whether they get enough proteins, enough calories because if they don’t enough calories
on a vegan diet they falloff. I eat too many celery, carrot sticks. They need to eat more robust plant fruits. Respondent: You have to have a starch-based
diet. I believe in the McDougall starch-based diet
because you feel good, you get enough calories and you get all the nutrients you want. You can be a vegan and eat potato chips and
Coca-Cola yet you have to be smart about it as well. Nick: So let’s say, A, the core diet is vegan
like Caldwell Esselstyn. Do you agree like I agree that it shouldn�t
be doused with oil? You should get the fats from whole natural
foods. Respondent: I do agree. No vegetable oil. Nick: And he tends to think also that the
oils deplete nitric oxide levels. And you and I know that molecule, nitric oxide,
is critical to good circulation. You’re eating all the green vegetables and
you’re depleting it with oils. Respondent: And that’s the way to get it,
through vegetable. I’m not sure that some of the products that
are out there now actually work to increase your nitric oxide levels. Nick: We’re coming out this next month with
Red Spinach Burst. It’s a nitric oxide burst. And we did clinical studies on pilot studies
in individuals. And the power, about 200 mg a day, really
increase nitric oxide because red spinach, we were able to make it free of the phytates
which phytate sometimes interfere a little bit with the mineral uptake. And it had a profound ability to release nitric
oxide in the saliva when it mixes and it turns nitrate into nitric oxides. So we’re probably going to be the first supplement
out there that�s actually been able to prove that works. Respondent: I’d like to try it. So you we’re asking me the three things for
anti-aging. Nick: Yes. What’s two and three? Respondent: You have to develop a program
that�s specific to you. You have to know your psychological state
and your physical state, a little bit about your genomics and maybe a little bit about
your proteomics and metabolomics, in other words how you react to different things on
a personal level to design your own nutraceutical program and your exercise program and how
to avoid stress — that’s huge — and how to asleep. And whatever you have to do you have to do. You can’t go by an article or a generalization. Those are starting points but you have to
figure it out for yourself. I had a sixth grade teacher that told me the
most profound thing. She wrote in my autograph book know yourself. I didn’t understand what she meant but now
I do on many levels. [0:04:59] So I think sleep is important, as I said,
diet is important, certain amount of exercise but not too much, and stress release and these
various mental techniques whether it’s meditation or using [0:05:14] [Indiscernible] or going
for a walk or whatever you have to do to be able to interact with your environment in
a calm way. Nick: I want to be sure that we caught this
but you also do a very effective detoxification method, and you were able to prove it by before-after
heavy metal testing. Give me a little rundown on that very quickly. Respondent: Yes. I use an infrared sauna, and I’ve been that
every day almost for ten years. It’s 4′ x 6′ foot so I can lie down. I have a light and I can read, I can listen
to audio books, I can even make notes, do a lot of thinking in there. Nick: How long do you stay in it? Respondent: I stay in it between 30 minutes
to an hour. Nick: So you stay in long enough to break
a sweat, a perspiration? Respondent: Oh, tremendous sweat, and that’s
where I sweat the most. I don’t sweat that much when I exercise for
some reason. Nick: And you’re hydrating a lot. Respondent: I’m hydrating and then I shower
right off. And sometimes I supplement myself with potassium
if I measure my potassium is low even though I’m not taking diuretics. I think that’s from the sweating. Nick: And you’re a fan of the trace minerals. Ninety-one or ninety-four trace minerals depending
on who you talk to. Respondent: Absolutely but I try to get them
through food. And once in a while I measure them in the
red blood cell membranes. But I’ve read more books in that infrared
sauna that I’ve read outside of the sauna. Outside of the sauna when I’m walking around
I usually listen to books. I’m a big fan of Nick: I use Amazon Kindle, the enabled. Respondent: Or I’ll order a lot of tapes of
meetings that I can get to and I listen to those. Nick: That’s awesome. So your learning curve is constant and continual,
you’re exercising, you’re efficiently doing things while you’re protecting and improving
your body, while you’re learning and growing. Respondent: Lifestyle is so important but
then as you know yourself, if you pick up a little genetic defect or you pick up a high
homocysteine or a marker that’s — you have to deal with that individually, and that requires
individual study. Nick: So the third thing was basically embracing
— I guess you should say you should include technology to monitor your progress. How can know for sure that things are working
unless you’re monitoring things? Respondent: Exactly, lab testing. I think lab testing is huge. Now, some problems with lab testing is that
many of them are not reproducible. In other words if you do the same test on
the same person with a split sample under different names you’d get the same results. Nick: Even at the same lab? Respondent: Yes, even at the same lab. Nick: I’ve done split samples where I send
them to different labs too. And on occasion like with 24 urine I get two
major laboratories, Rhein and Jonathan Wright’s lab, they’re coming up with the same results
almost to the point. So I like that. Respondent: It depends on the test too. Nick: So do you do urinary metabolites for
hormones? Respondent: Yes. I like let Precision Analytics. And they have a letter urine test with strips
and I like the metabolites. Nick: You pee on it fours times during the
day. Respondent: Yes. And you hang it up on the bar. Nick: Let it dry. Respondent: Let it dry. Nick: I’ve been doing those tests now too. Respondent: 24-hour urine I find a little
cumbersome. I see the value in it but I just haven’t gotten
around to using that. Nick: There’s an advantage to doing the four-point
because now you can pick up the variations in cortisol. Respondent: That’s right which you can’t on
a 24-hour urine. Nick: Right, because you’re getting a bulk
amount. Respondent: Or variation in melatonin or anything
else. Nick: I’ve been doing the live blood analysis. We call it oxidative stress so there’s no
confusion about looking at the blood under the microscope for 38 years. And I see certain things in there and then
I cross-math it with the lipid test and I see the triglycerides and I show the person
visually what they’re looking at and the levels. Respondent: You did that on me once. That’s fantastic. You’re an amazing guy. I really enjoy reading your work and following
you through the years. And what you’ve done and your promotion of
different products is fabulous. Nick: It’s one of those things where you have
to be very integrous with what you promote. It has to be something you sincerely believe
and have tested or have an unconscious and conscious belief that this is the right thing
not only for myself but for other people. And some people say, “This isn’t right for
you.” Respondent: But look at what you’ve done with
yourself personally and how you compete in those strength events and how you’ve turned
your own health around. That’s impressive. You just can’t get around that.
