Today, I am blessed to have here with me Practitioner, Founder, and Owner of Metabolic Solutions LLC, Brendan Dean Vermeire. Brendan has always been an extremely motivated individual and grew up active in martial arts and wrestling among dabbling in other activities.At a young age, he realized the importance of fitness and nutrition. Brendan felt empowered by the idea that he had control over his health and physique. Brendan enlisted in the United States Navy for the prestigious SEAL program. Unfortunately, his SEAL aspirations were cut short due to an inguinal hernia that led to a medical discharge. This episode originally aired on Friday June 4th 2021. Brendan transitioned into competitive bodybuilding and started personal training and nutrition coaching at the age of 19. When he started in the industry, he had the pleasure of working with experienced professionals with a vast array of backgrounds and education. Brendan was fortunate enough to gain exposure to many modalities and areas of science.Being an extremely motivated individual, that exposure has set him on a path to learning as much as he can to optimize human health, happiness, and performance. There is nothing more rewarding to me than being able to help individuals attain a level of wellness they never thought possible. In this episode, Brendan Vermeire talks all about mold and mold illness diagnosis. First, he dives into the importance of fungus for our planet and its role in our ecosystem. Then, Brendan explains how to know if you are living with mold in your home and what you can do when you discover mold in your environment. Later, Brendan reveals his personal story with mold illness. Finally, the conversation turns to EMF radiation and how you can protect yourself.  Order Keto Flex: http://www.ketoflexbook.com -------------------------------------------------------- / / E P I S O D E   S P ON S O R S  PureForm Omega Plant Based Oils (Best Alternative to Fish Oil): http://www.purelifescience.com Use ben4 for $4.00 off.

Fungus has been on planet Earth a lot longer than humans have. How much fungal overgrowth do you have in your body? It can be a spectrum. Whereas mainstream doctors want you to believe that it's all or nothing. Here are some other questions you need to consider when thinking about mold illness: How many mycotoxins might be trapped in your tissues? How much mold exposure are you getting? How resilient is your body against mold? How robust are your detox systems and immune system? [11:50] How To Know If You Are Living With Mold Fungi feeds on carbohydrates and rotting material. Something you should consider is the role of fungi in the natural world. Fungi will break down dead carbon-based material to recycle nutrients back to the soil. Overall, it plays a very important role in our ecosystem. In fact, fungi seem to be a normal part of our gut microbiome. It trains our immune system and matures our immune system. Most people will find mold in their living environment. The US Environmental Protection Authority developed ERMI to provide a straightforward way to assess mold and indoor air quality investigations. Learn more about ERMI here: https://www.envirobiomics.com/product/ermi/ We have to think about the degree of mold exposure in the environment, the frequency, and the mold load. [20:25] What To Do If You Know You Have Mold In Your Home There's a very fine line between creating a problem where there isn't one versus identifying a healing opportunity where there is one. We are all exposed to a lot of bad things every single day. So, we can't make it sound like if you're at all exposed, you're going to be ill. The biggest thing you need to think about is if you have symptoms. However, if you're living in a compromised environment, it's probably just a matter of time before you do start developing symptoms. The first option is to remediate and reduce the fungal load to improve the home's air quality. Otherwise, it would be best if you moved out of your home. Check out @moldfinders on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/moldfinders [23:40] How Mold Played A Role In Brendan's Life Nobody cares about mold until they get really sick from it. One day, Brendan's fiancé at the time woke up with an unrelenting cramp. Eventually, she became emaciated. Brendan had fatigue, and it compounded his depressive tendencies. Unfortunately, Brendan's fiancé was the canary in the coal mine. Sadly, they ended up separating because it became such a toxic and volatile situation. Four years later, Brendan got the news that she had taken her own life. [34:30] EMFs Are Damaging The Body Humans are so disconnected from our innate intuition. The radiation that's being emitted from our electronic devices cannot be good for us. We need a lot more studies when it comes to EMFs and damaging our bodies. EMFs are already categorized as a probable carcinogen. We as a species, as a collective, are lacking tolerance to both mold and this radiation. [37:30] Reducing The Damage EMFs Can Have On Your Body The most important thing you can do is reduce the exposure. Turn off your wi-fi router at night. Put your phone on airplane mode. There's not a ton that you can do to reduce the exposure because it is everywhere. Instead, think about what you can control. [43:55] What Brendan Is Most Looking Forward To This Year Brendan is grateful to niche down in the mold world. Brendan is focusing on mental health and a functional medicine approach to mental health. Plus, Brendan is excited to start writing his book, and he is speaking at IMMH.

Oh, the magical world of mushrooms and Dr. Mike Amaranthus helps us break it all down. I've interviewed him before (Episode 64), but in this interview, we really take a deeper dive into the importance of mushrooms, the medicinal ones and the psychedelic ones. Dr. Amaranthus wrote a new book, "Fry, Thrive, or Die," and it's a pocket guide on the 50 most common delicious, hallucinogenic, medicinal, and poisonous mushrooms of the western United States. He says he had a lot of fun writing the book, which is loaded with pictures (we edited some pictures in the interview as well), and he's hoping it sparks some excitement to get out in nature and find some fungi.

Show Notes In the latest Sake Deep Dive, Andy and Jim take on Japan's national mold, Aspergillus oryzae–the lowly koji-kin. This is less a historical exploration and more a real look at the nitty gritty on this itty bitty ruler of the sake world. CORRECTION: During the episode, Jim mistakenly called Shirokoji Aspergillus luchuensis. That is incorrect. It is Aspergillis kawachii. Aspergillus luchuensis is another name for Aspergillus awamori. Vocabulary from this episode Kikoji - Yellow koji, Aspergillus oryzae. The standard sake strain of koji kin. Koji kin - the actual way to refer to the mold spores that are added to rice to make rice koji. Kurokoji - Black koji, Aspergillus awamori/Aspergillus luchuensis. The standard strain of koji kin for making the Okinawan rice spirit of awamori. Shirokoji - White koji. Aspergillus kawachii. The standard strain of koji kin for making Japan's spirit of shochu. Oddly, a mutated form of Aspergillus awamori. Toko - Literally “floor/bed.” The table where major hand-made koji production happens. Hako - Literally “box.” A box where moderately sized batches of hand-made koji are propagated for temperature control. Futa - Literally “lid.” Smaller boxes for precise, granular temperature control in hand-made koji production.

The Secret House Fungi in the Built Environment Presented by Keith Seifert Department of Biology, Carleton University, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada K1S 5B6 We often overlook the built environment as a biological system, partly because we design our shelters to protect us from the climate and competing organisms. Houses and other buildings contain several sub-environments, which vary from location to location. The outer walls and roof, the wooden or metal skeletons that support the structures, the interior surfaces and flooring each have their own distinct mycota. Material introduced into the house, like furniture, bedding, houseplants, food, compost, and human, pet and rodent inhabitants also carry fungi that might become resident. Most parts of the house are like a desert and play host to xerophiles, fungi that do not require much moisture. Symbioses occur between some xerophilic moulds and dust mites (and possibly some insects). The abundant moisture and higher humidity of kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms are like tropical rain forests. Although many of the species are benign, understanding the biology of the fungi in a building is critical. The health of occupants can be affected by fungal spores, β-glucan containing hyphal fragments, or volatile organic compounds that cause allergies or asthma, especially in children. Fungal populations may change dramatically if plumbing systems leak, and spores can be distributed widely by air handling systems. This can have serious consequences in public or multiple dwelling buildings. Studies of indoor microbiomes are relevant to the larger topics of island biogeography and urban biology. In addition, events that concern us on a planetary scale, such as the phenomenon of invasive species, sometimes also occur in the built environment. However, its direct relevance to human health suggests the ecology of buildings deserves much more study. Keith Seifert is the author of the recent book The Hidden Kingdom of Fungi, which takes readers on a fantastic voyage through the world of microscopic fungi. He spent his career as a Research Scientist for Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada in Ottawa as a mycologist specializing in the identification and classification of microscopic fungi that produce toxins in crops and foods. His academic publications include more than 250 scientific papers and six books. From 2014-2018, he was the President of the International Mycological Association, was the chair of the International Commission on the Taxonomy of Fungi, and was an executive editor of the scientific journal Mycologia. He retired in 2019 and is now an adjunct professor at Carleton University in Ottawa. As a writer and speaker, Keith combines humour and philosophy to explore the interactions between science, the humanities, history and society. The stories in his book show the positive and negative effects of fungi on our forests, farms, food and drink, homes, bodies and human economic activities.

The Friday Newsletter |  Daily Gardener Community   Historical Events 1791 On this day, Australia's first thriving grapevine was planted. The First Fleet's Captain Arthur Phillip brought grape cuttings from South America and South Africa and produced a small vineyard at Farm Cove. Today, Farm Cove is the location of the Sydney Botanical Gardens. When the plants did not bear, they were transplanted to Parramatta.  Arthur Philip served as the first Governor of New South Wales when his Crimson Grapes flourished in the warm Australian fertile soil. Today Crimson Grapes can also be found in Victoria and southeastern Queensland. Australian Crimson Grapes enjoy a long harvest period from November to May.   1869 Birth of Charlotte Mary Mew, English poet. In her poem, In Nunhead Cemetary, she wrote, There is something horrible about a flower; This, broken in my hand, is one of those He threw it in just now; it will not live another hour; There are thousands more; you do not miss a rose.   And in The Sunlit House, she wrote, The parched garden flowers Their scarlet petals from the beds unswept Like children unloved and ill-kept But I, the stranger, knew that I must stay. Pace up the weed-grown paths and down Till one afternoon ... From an upper window a bird flew out And I went my way.   1887 Birth of Georgia O'Keeffe, American modernist artist. During her incredible career as a painter, Georgia created over 900 works of art. She is remembered for her iconic paintings of skulls and flowers. In 1938 Georgia's career stalled. Yet she was approached by an advertising agency about creating two paintings for the Hawaiian Pineapple Company (now Dole Food Company) to use in their advertising. Georgia was 51 years old when she took the nine weeks, all-expense-paid trip. Georgia never did paint a pineapple. And gardeners will enjoy this obscure fact: Of all the floral paintings that O'Keeffe created in Hawaii, exactly NONE were native to the island. Instead, Georgia loved the exotic tropicals imported from South America: Bougainvillea, Plumeria, Heliconia, Calliandra, and the White Bird of Paradise. It was Georgia 0'Keeffe who said all of these quotes about flowers - a subject for which she held strong opinions. Nobody sees a flower - really - it is so small it takes time ...like to have a friend takes time. I hate flowers. I paint them because they're cheaper than models and they don't move! If you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for a moment. I decided that if I could paint that flower on a huge scale, you could not ignore its beauty.   1930 Birth of James Graham Ballard (pen name J.G. Ballard), English novelist. James was part of the New Wave of science fiction in the 1960s. Yet, he is most remembered for his 1984 war novel, Empire of the Sun. In The Unlimited Dream Company, James wrote, "Miriam - I'll give you any flowers you want!' Rhapsodising over the thousand scents of her body, I exclaimed: "I'Il grow orchids from your hands, roses from your breasts. You can have magnolias in your hair... In your womb I'll set a fly-trap!" And in The Garden of Time, James wrote, "Axel," his wife asked with sudden seriousness. "Before the garden dies ... may I pick the last flower?" Understanding her request, he nodded slowly.   James once wrote, I believe in madness, in the truth of the inexplicable, in the common sense of stones, in the lunacy of flowers.   Grow That Garden Library™ Book Recommendation Entangled Life by Merlin Sheldrake This book came out in 2021, and the subtitle is How Fungi Make Our Worlds, Change Our Minds & Shape Our Futures. This book has won all kinds of recognition: The Wainwright Prize, the Royal Society Science Book Prize, and the Guild of Food Writers Award • Shortlisted for the British Book Award Longlisted for the Rathbones Folio Prize. The publisher writes, In Entangled Life, the brilliant young biologist Merlin Sheldrake shows us the world from a fungal point of view, providing an exhilarating change of perspective. Sheldrake's vivid exploration takes us from yeast to psychedelics, to the fungi that range for miles underground and are the largest organisms on the planet, to those that link plants together in complex networks known as the "Wood Wide Web," to those that infiltrate and manipulate insect bodies with devastating precision.   Entangled Life is a fascinating read. Merlin's passion for fungi (fun-ghee) knows no bounds. Fungi are often referred to as a neglected kingdom of life. Compared to other kingdoms like plants and animals, we know very little about fungi, and only six percent has thus far been described. And Fungi are more closely related to animals than to plants. Today most plant life depends on relationships with mycorrhizal fungi or fungi that live in their roots. These fungi help plants acquire water and nutrients. They also protect the plants from disease.  But its not just plants that need fungi. All Life on earth depends on fungi. Most fungi are mycelium - the branching fusing networks of tubular cells that feed and transport substances around themselves. Fungi have a unique way of organizing themselves. Mycelium cover the earth in a chaotic, sprawling way. Mycelium can be stretched out end to end up to ten kilometers from a single teaspoon of soil. This book is 368 pages of the mysterious and miraculous world of fungi.  You can get a copy of Entangled Life by Merlin Sheldrake and support the show using the Amazon link in today's show notes for around $9.   Botanic Spark 1909 On this day, the orange blossom was designated as the official state flower of Florida. This gesture inspired the poet William Livingston Larned to write a poem called Florida's State Flower. The last little bit goes like this: Whenever you see the spotless bud, You know tis Florida the fair. And wafted to you comes the scent Of all the blissful regions there. The rose may have its followers, The violet its standard, too; The fleur-de-lis and lily fair In tints of red and pink and blue; But just a scent, On pleasure bent, Of orange sweet, The nostrils greet, And from our dreams, the castles rise, Of groves and meadows 'neath calm skies.   Thanks for listening to The Daily Gardener And remember: For a happy, healthy life, garden every day.

The historian Orlando Figes, who has made the study of Russia his lifelong work, shows us how in his new book, The Story of Russia.  Coming at a moment when Russia's history is being used as a pretext for the war in Ukraine, the timing could not be more pertinent. In part two of the show, the historian shares his passion for Gustav Flaubert's great novel, Madame Bovary.  Figes has published ten books on Russian and European history, including the prizewinning study of the Russian Revolution, A People's Tragedy, and has been a historical consultant on films such as Anna Karenina, starring Keira Knightlye, and a BBC adaptation of War & Peace. Born in London in 1958, his mother was Eva Figes, a Jewish immigrant who fled Nazi Germany with her parents and would go on to become an acclaimed novelist herself, and perhaps a seminal influence on her son.

Fergus has been gathering and learning about wild plants, seaweeds, and fungi for over 40 years. His journey begun on Wimbledon Common, aged 3 years, collecting dandelions for the family's pet tortoise. Since those early days, and through much creative and experimental exploration he has continued his foraging practice, not only as a means to understand and to discover the practical relevance that foraging has in the modern developed world, but also in terms of what it means to be an environmentally conscious human in relation to the natural world. “Can foraging ever be considered a truly sustainable practice, and if so how?”, is a question that always orchestrates his foraging activity. So too does a pursuit of foraging's playful and creative possibilities. Truth be told, Fergus just loves being outside, admiring nature as part of nature, living in touch with her reassuring seasonal cycles, awake to her sensuality, her surprises, opportunities, and endless gifts, in pursuit of the good life.   TOPICS COVERED:   Trips with Mom to Wimbledon Common   Tortoise Teacher, I Spy Insects   Play, Creativity and Foraging    Brambles, Pine Pollen & Jelly Ears   Foraging “Nose to Tail”   Foraging as a Subversive Act   Life Stacking   Avoiding Neurosis & Being Saved by Others   Reciprocal Dialogue with the Natural World   Developing a Relationship with Local Open Space   Complicity in Industrial Systems   Amanita muscaria Workshops   Amanita muscaria as Food & Medicine   Foraged Books & Making Paper from Mushrooms    EPISODE RESOURCES:   Fergus the Forager Website: https://fergustheforager.co.uk/ Fergus IG: https://www.instagram.com/fergustheforager/ Pine pollen: https://nutrawiki.org/pine-pollen/ Auricularia auricula-judae (AKA Jelly Ear): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auricularia_auricula-judae Plantago major: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plantago_major Pascal Baudar: https://www.urbanoutdoorskills.com/ Fergus Henderson (author): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Whole_Beast  Jason Hickel (author): https://www.jasonhickel.org/  Katy Bowman: https://www.nutritiousmovement.com/  Fomitopsis betulina (AKA Birch Polypore): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fomitopsis_betulina  David Arora article on Amanita muscaria: https://williamrubel.files.wordpress.com/2011/09/rubel_arora_muscaria_economic_botany3.pdf”  Merck Index: https://www.rsc.org/merck-index  Phallus impudicus (AKA Stinkhorn): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phallus_impudicus

For this year's Halloween Special, the Queens were going to go on a ghost hunt, but we already did that and don't wanna get double haunted. So instead we're delving into the horrifying world of mushrooms and fungi. Don't get us wrong, they're awesome. But they can also rate pretty highly on the creep scale. Their interconnected mycelium network, how they spew spores around the place, and how fast they can pop up overnight - it's wild. But there are some particularly special mushrooms and fungi that we wanted to spotlight because they're next level scary (and cool, honestly). We won't give too much away, but if you're after some tales of 'bleeding' mushrooms, another that control ants, or perhaps one that look like a tentacle monster and smells like rotten flesh on purpose, you've come to the right place.

About 90% of plants have partners that enrich their life – fungal partners, specifically, and nutritional enrichment that the plants use for growth, reproduction, and photosynthesis. How do these relationships form and develop, and what do they look like? Tune in to explore: How long fungal spores can survive in soil, waiting to germinate in the presence of the right plant How plants sense that a particular fungus will have a beneficial effect on them Whether fungi have microbiomes and associations with bacteria and viruses How fungi transfer nutrients from the soil to the plants they're associated with Katie Field is a professor in plant-fungi interactions at the University of Sheffield in the UK.

Today on Mushroom Hour we the privilege to get to know mushroom cultivation artist Kiat. Kiat is the founder of Bewilder, a Mycological Design Studio based in Singapore. As the one-man R&D team behind this project, Kiat knows his science! For him, growing mushrooms is an intense and carefully tuned process that also blends in a fair bit of artistry and intuition. Before founding Bewilder, Kiat worked on a local farm cultivating mushrooms out of waste substrates. These years of experience and experimentation formed him into the self-taught mushroom cultivator he is today. As he explores ever more mysteries of growing fungi, he continues to bow his head humbly to the ways of nature.   TOPICS COVERED:Childhood Love of Nature Becomes a Mushroom Addiction   Mycophobia and “Success Culture” in Singapore   Showing What's Possible, Asking Questions    Mushrooms as a Tool for Doing Good   Founding Bewilder Design Studio   Communities vs Competition in Myco-Entrepreneurship   Myco-Composite Materials   Government Control and Separation from Nature     Seeking Out Native Strains for Food & Mycomaterials   Mycelium Lampshades   Being Humble, Recognizing Our Place in Nature   Relinquishing Control, Reconnecting to Greater Consciousness   Importance of Making Mistakes   Bewilder Commercial Projects and Research Areas   EPISODE RESOURCES:   Bewilder SG Website: https://www.bewildersg.com/   Bewilder IG: https://www.instagram.com/bewildersg/   Terrestrial Fungi (Inspiration): https://www.instagram.com/bewildersg/   Ganoderma weberianum (fungus): https://www.mycobank.org/page/Name%20details%20page/name/Ganoderma%20weberianum   Filoboletus manipularis (fungus): https://singapore.biodiversity.online/species/F-Basidomycota-000035   Mycena chlorophos (fungus): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mycena_chlorophos

Today on Mushroom Hour we are graced by the presence of mycologist and musician Andy Overall. Andy has had a fascinating journey from the Blue Zoo and pop stardom back through the hedges and woodlands when he became interested in mushrooms back in the early 1990's. He realized he needed something else, another interest other than his involvement with music. Growing up as a boy during the 60's in the English, market town countryside, of Braintree, Essex he nurtured an interest in nature…And then along came David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust and everything changed course for a while! Later in life his rekindled interest in fungi evolved into obsession as he began to see an infinite variety of fungal species appearing before him and he wanted to get to know them all. Since his obsession began, Andy has published magazines, countless articles and in 2017 his first book all about fungi -  “FUNGI-Mushrooms & Toadstools of Parks, Gardens, Heaths and Woodlands”. He is the fungi recorder for the London Natural History Society and a Group Leader in the London Fungus Group. I'm excited to learn about the mycological journey of a culture creator, artist and naturalist and his explorations into what he so poetically dubs, “the jewels in nature's crown”   TOPICS COVERED:   From Wilderness to Ziggy Stardust   Birth of Blue Zoo   Shifting from Pop Stardom to Mycology   Evolution of the Amateur Mycology Community   Professional Surveying for Fungi    Insights from Biodiversity Databases   Making Better Decisions About Forest Management   Role of DNA in Fungal Surveys   Heathrow Airport Cortinarius    Contributions of Amateur Naturalists   Tips to Making Better Observations   Process of Mushroom Spotting & Identification    Ethnomycology Travels in Oaxaca, Czech Republic, Australia   Published and Unpublished Works of Gaston Guzman   EPISODE RESOURCES:   Andy Overall Website: http://www.fungitobewith.org/   London Fungi Facebook: https://en-gb.facebook.com/LondonFungusNetwork/   British Mycological Society: https://www.britmycolsoc.org.uk/   Blue Zoo Website: http://www.bluezoo.org.uk/   Roger Phillips (Legend): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Phillips_(photographer)   Marcel Bon (Mycologist): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marcel_Bon   Mark Spencer (Botanist): https://markspencerbotanist.com/   GIGL: https://www.gigl.org.uk/londons-open-spaces/   Cortinarius heatherae (fungus): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cortinarius_heatherae   Laetiporus sulphureus (AKA Chicken of the Woods): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laetiporus_sulphureus

Today on Mushroom Hour we have the privilege of being joined by Dr. Kevin Boyce, Professor of Geological Sciences at Stanford University. Dr. Boyce's research is focused on the biological and environmental impacts of the evolution of plant structure, development, and physiology from the Paleozoic colonization of land through the subsequent radiations of land plant forms up to and including the Cretaceous radiation of flowering plants. This work involves both living and fossil plants and a wide variety of approaches: developmental and physiological investigation, climate modeling, comparative study of morphological diversity, and cell and tissue-specific analysis of elemental, isotopic, and organic chemistry. These tools have been applied to three connected areas of research that each inform wider questions concerning the evolution of terrestrial environments: 1. the evolution of leaf morphology, development, and physiology with feedbacks to climate and primary productivity, 2. the evolution of cell wall biochemistry and its influence on organic matter burial as a sink in the carbon cycle, and 3. the establishment of early terrestrial life and ecosystems encompassing the complete biota including animals, fungi, and microbial communities in addition to the plants. I'm excited to learn about the coevolution of plants and fungi, prototaxites and how we learn about organismal evolution and community assembly from the ancient past.    TOPICS COVERED:   The Path into PaleontologyGeobiology & Defining Geological Eras   Fungal & Plant Fossil Records   Absolute Time & Relative Time   Evolution of Plant Physiology   Coevolution of Plants, Bacteria, Fungi and Animals   Stochastic "Rules" of Community Assembly   Geochemistry   Genetic Tools and Phylogeny Changing Paleontology   Prototaxites   Biochemical Signatures of Heretrophs and Autotrophs   Piecing Together a Paleozoic Landscape    Lifestyle, Physiology and Growth Rate of Prototaxites   Future Work into the Cenozoic   EPISODE RESOURCES:   Dr. Kevin Boyce Academic Website: https://biology.stanford.edu/people/kevin-boyce   Dr. Boyce Paper on Prototaxites: https://awarticles.s3.amazonaws.com/Boyce2007.pdf   Prototaxites: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prototaxites   Geologic Time Scale: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geologic_time_scale   "Wonderful Life" by Stephen Gould: https://wwnorton.com/books/Wonderful-Life/   Lycopodium (clubmoss genus): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lycopodium   "Stinkhorn" Mushrooms: https://www.mushroomexpert.com/stinkhorns.html
