The extraterrestrial comedy podcast where we probe 260's-ish Before Common Era Ruler, Ashoka's formation of a secret society to protect the secrets of the world. Until the world is ready, that is. Yes, today we cover the Nine Unknown Men. Or should that be Nine Unknown People? We whizz over the background of the third Indian Subcontinent Mauryan leader named Ashoka who, after conquering the lands, had a change of heart (which had nothing to do with there being nothing left to conquer). Ashoka would turn to peace and to maintain that peace, Ashoka formed a secret group. This group of Nine Unknown Men would hold the worlds most deadly secrets. Those secrets involved, Propaganda, Communication, Physiology, Microbiology, Gravity, Cosmology, Alchemy, Light and Sociology. Can you guess who got their hands on the secrets of propaganda? Which of the nine is the deadliest power? Was an actual Pope once one of the Nine? All that and more on this week's file.

My Body Odyssey attended the 51st Falmouth Road Race- the local, 7-mile pub crawl that quickly evolved into a major, international event with 75,000 spectators and ten thousand runners annually. Our episode features three participants at this year event, including the only runner to have completed all 51 Falmouth Road Races: Dr. Brian Salzberg. “I've had just a slew of injuries,” said Dr. Salzberg, a professor of Neuroscience and Physiology at UPenn Medical School. “And they always happen away from Falmouth. So it never stopped me from running the Falmouth Road Races.” Actually, what may not have stopped Dr. Salzberg is his own tenacity. He's finished the event with a brain tumor and on torn ligaments. “I did the 7 mile course on crutches in 2008,” he jokes. “ And, as far as I know, I still have the crutch record.” Born with Spina Bifida, fourteen-year-old wheelchair racer Madelyn Wilson displays a tenacity quite similar to that of Dr. Salzberg, whose race record she could eventually threaten. “Oh, this is my favorite race of the year,” she told us at the Health & Wellness Expo. “I'm always energetic and waiting to do this. Like, hurry up, let's go.” Are dedicated, highly enthused runners and racers like Dr. Salzburg and Madylen born to train and compete at events like the Falmouth Road Race? Or do the benefits of training and competing motivate individuals to just keep at it until it becomes second nature? Carol Crutchfield, a charity runner at this year's race, firmly believes that nurture, not nature, creates lifelong runners. “The main thing is, your mind's your worst enemy,” says Carol, author of a book for the beginning runner, And They Shall Run. “So you gotta make yourself get out the door, and that's the hardest thing.” These inspiring odysseys may help you get out the door more often to run, cycle, walk, or whatever form of activity you choose. And they may motivate you to visit this now famous road race along the iconic Cape Cod shoreline looking out towards Martha's Vineyard. Tune in for inspiration amidst perspiration at the 51st Falmouth Road Race. My Body Odyssey is a Fluent Knowledge production. Original music by Ryan Adair Rooney.

Look beyond the traditional regional approach of the pelvis and pelvic floor and understand how discovering and addressing dysfunctions of the trigeminal and respiratory system including the voice and heart rate variability can have an impact on pelvic health. HRV is a well-researched indicator of the balance between the Sympathetic and the Parasympathetic nervous systems. The balance has a large impact on the performance of the GI system and can influence pain, motility, and inflammation. Working with Breath, Voice, and HRV can not only predict dysfunction but is an excellent metric to guide interventions in different domains. This 2 part replay of a webinar is designed to expand your current practice through evidence-based and biologically plausible methods of examination and intervention into the thoracic, and cervical systems harnessing the breath and the voice can optimize respiratory mechanics and heart rate variability.

It's no secret that our bodies, our minds, our perspectives in life change as we age. Yet we often believe that what we learned about playing trumpet while we were in our teens and early twenties will continue to work as we get older.Maybe it's because we heard something in a masterclass and decided this is the way to do it. Or we attended a certain school where certain dogmas regarding trumpet playing prevailed, even overshadowing individual needs of the player.This was more or less the impetus of Paul Baron and Bobby Medina beginning first a Facebook targeted at older players, and then eventually becoming a full-fledged training regimen called Trumpet Diagnostics. I wanted to pick the brains of the founders of the program about their experiences working with older players, and what they aim to achieve with their program.Thankfully we were able to get all three of us on a Zoom call from various parts of the U.S. and talk about their program.Enjoy the interview!What you'll hear in this episode:-The founding origins of the Trumpet Diagnostics program...02:30-The Facebook group becomes a webinar, which becomes the program...05:30-What does "Body Mechanics Mastery" mean?...06:30-Why certain methods we swear by are sometimes limited in their efficacy in teaching us how to play efficiently...08:40-Learning "the method of no method"; becoming our own teachers...13:00-Why have we moved beyond the various "schools" of thought regarding trumpet playing?...14:15-Martial arts lessons applied to the physicality of trumpet...18:30-Efficiency (i.e. minimal playing) is key to longevity as a trumpeter...23:00-Don't worry about aesthetics based on showmanship, worry about what works for you...27:30-What is the biggest hurdles Paul and Bobby's students need to overcome?...29:00-Neuroplasticity and repetition over a long period of time is key to improving your playing...34:30-What you'll experience with the Trumpet Diagnostics program...38:05-Plus whatever your discerning ears deem worthy of your time and interest...Resources mentioned:Trumpet DiagnosticsTips for Trumpeters 50 and Beyond!

Muscle loss is a common yet preventable part of the aging process. As we age, muscle mass naturally decreases due to a decrease in physical activity and slowed metabolism. This process is known as sarcopenia, and it can have long-term health implications if not addressed. In this article, we'll discuss the importance of muscle, why it's so difficult to build in the first place, and how to prevent age-related muscle loss. The Importance of Muscle Preservation Higher levels of muscle mass offer myriad health benefits. One significant advantage is that muscles act as metabolic powerhouses. They burn calories even when we're at rest, helping to maintain optimal body weight and prevent obesity.Wolfe, RR. "The underappreciated role of muscle in health and disease." The American journal of clinical nutrition 84.3 (2006): 475-482. Muscle tissue also plays a pivotal role in improving insulin sensitivity, reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes.Srikanthan, Preethi, and Arun S. Karlamangla. "Relative muscle mass is inversely associated with insulin resistance and prediabetes. Findings from the third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey." The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism 96.9 (2011): 2898-2903. The greater the muscle mass, the more glucose our bodies utilize, reducing the chance of diabetes development. For mobility, muscle mass contributes to better balance and stability, which becomes crucial as we age.Landi, Francesco, et al. "Sarcopenia as the biological substrate of physical frailty." Clinics in geriatric medicine 31.3 (2015): 367-374. This enhanced stability reduces the likelihood of falls and injuries, contributing to a longer and healthier life. Muscles also regulate our body's response to inflammation and infection. A study by Johns Hopkins University found that individuals with solid muscle mass had a stronger immune response.Fiuza-Luces, Carmen, et al. "Exercise is the real polypill." Physiology 28.5 (2013): 330-358. Moreover, preserving muscle mass aids in maintaining mental well-being. Research reveals a strong correlation between muscle strength and improved mood, reduced anxiety, and decreased instances of depression.Gordon, Brett R., et al. "Association of efficacy of resistance exercise training with depressive symptoms meta-analysis and meta-regression analysis of randomized clinical trials." JAMA psychiatry 75.6 (2018): 566-576. So, muscle mass is not just about physical strength and aesthetics but a keystone of our overall health and longevity. Why Is It So Difficult to Build Muscle? Muscle hypertrophy, or the increase in muscle mass, is a complex process that becomes increasingly difficult as we age. This phenomenon is orchestrated by several factors, including hormones, proteins, and our bodies' connective tissues. Testosterone and growth hormone are two crucial players in muscle building. These hormones function like biochemical foremen, directing the construction and repair of muscle tissue. Testosterone promotes protein synthesis, the process by which the body uses dietary protein to build new muscle fibers.West, D. W., & Phillips, S. M. (2012). Associations of exercise-induced hormone profiles and gains in strength and hypertrophy in a large cohort after weight training. European journal of applied physiology, 112(7), 2693-2702. On the other hand, growth hormone stimulates cell growth and regeneration, playing an integral part in muscle repair and recovery.Devesa, J., Almengló, C., & Devesa, P. (2016). Multiple effects of growth hormone in the body: Is it really the hormone for growth?. Clinical medicine insights. Endocrinology and diabetes, 9, Cmed-88159. However, with advancing age, our bodies naturally produce less of these hormones. This reduction results in slower muscle growth and recovery, making muscle building more challenging.Pritzlaff, C. J., Wideman, L., Weltman, J. Y., Abbott, R. D., Gutgesell, M. E., Hartman, M. L., ... & Weltman, A.

Today's Episode Dr. Raj talks with Dr. Khankhanian about how Chiropractic and Neurology have intertwined in his medical practice, the unique challenges that come up with each phenotype of concussion, and how holistic and Western medicine coexist in his own practice to find non-traditional ways of treating Post-Concussion Syndrome. Today's Guest Dr. Joseph Khankhanian was born and raised in the suburbs of Los Angeles, California, where he completed and received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology/BioEthics from American Jewish University. Dr. Khankhanian has always been passionate about natural medicine and holistic approaches to managing health. This is why he decided to continue his education and complete his graduate studies at Life Chiropractic College West in the San Francisco Bay Area. There, he received his Doctorate in Chiropractic and decided to continue his postdoctoral studies at the Carrick Institute. He further specialized in Clinical Neuroscience and received his Diplomate of the American Chiropractic Neurology Board (DACNB). He has taken over 400 hours of coursework on neurological rehabilitation and Functional Medicine/Nutrition, and is currently in pursuit of a Fellowship in Clinical Neurochemistry and Nutrition (FABNN). With his extensive doctorate and post-doctorate training, Dr. Khankhanian has helped many patients return to or find their optimal selves without drugs or surgery. He has worked through many challenging cases and has achieved remarkable results with his patients. He specializes in Traumatic Brain Injury, Migraines & Headaches, Dizziness & Vertigo, Developmental Disorders, Chronic Pain, and Autoimmune & Metabolic Illnesses. As a "Root Cause" clinician, his only goal is to help his patients find the source of their issues and to fix it permanently. Every patient is unique, and by using the latest research-grade technology, he is able to create a care plan that is tailored to each patient. Instead of taking the batteries out of the smoke alarm, Dr. Khankhanian looks to put out the fire. Dr. Khankhanian's core belief is that holistic care is the future of medicine. His mission is to share his knowledge and practices of this life changing medicine with his patients. When he's not in the office, Dr. Khankhanian enjoys playing golf, singing, riding bikes, watching NBA, playing board games, and working out. He loves dogs and has a Maltipoo of his own named Oscar.

We all have stress in our lives, whether physical, chemical, emotional, or microbial, and how we deal with that stress makes a huge difference in how our bodies respond. A lot of what we see with thyroid physiology is an adaptive response to some type of excessive stress response.Getting well is not about how many supplements you take; it's about finding a balanced approach to diet, nutrition, sleep, respiration, and exercise. We can support thyroid recovery by identifying and reducing the underlying stressors and addressing the foundational elements of good health.Today, I'm excited to discuss thyroid physiology with Dr. Eric Balcavage. Dr. Eric Balcavage is the owner and founder of Rejuvagen, a functional medicine clinic in Chadds Ford, PA, and a nationally recognized speaker and educator on various health-related topics, including thyroid physiology, bile physiology, detoxification, oxidative stress, methylation, and chronic illness.In this conversation, Dr. Eric and I discuss his journey into functional medicine, his perspective on thyroid health, the importance of identifying and addressing underlying stressors, limitations of the allopathic approach to treating thyroid disorders, Dr. Eric's approach to thyroid hormone testing, the role of breathing and carbon dioxide in oxygenation, why we must look at lab markers in a bigger context, and more.

Today, Megan joins the show to discuss why Marathon fueling can be so complicated, the physiology of fueling and the importance of hydration.

Especially to a teenager - especially as a female - you get those mixed messages. You look at your body type. You have negative body image often.” (06:37)“I think the Marathon training is the hardest just because most of us are not used to eating on a run. Our gut is not used to taking in nutrition. So, when I start talking to the athletes I coach, who are training for Marathons, it's really starting with the basics of getting your body used to taking in a little nutrition. So, I think it's fear of taking in nutrition, lack of knowledge of how much your body actually needs, and understanding the physiology of why you need it.” (10:50)“If you don't have Type 1 Diabetes, your body has this wonderful regulation system. So, if your liver has enough glycogen in it, then if you start to exercise and don't eat something and your blood sugar starts to drop, your liver will make enough sugar to regulate your blood sugars.” (15:23)“When you're dehydrated, your blood thickens. So, when that blood thickens, it's increasing your heart rate, it's increasing your blood pressure, it's increasing your perceived effort. And it makes it a lot harder to get that oxygen to the working muscles.” (22:31)“Once we start getting into longer runs, like Marathon training, I usually recommend taking anywhere from four to eight ounces of fluid every fifteen minutes.” (29:36)“So don't feel like you have to replace every amount of sodium that you're sweating out. You just don't want to get to a point where you're diluting your blood sodium levels. And what I mean by that is that if you were on a long run, it's a hot, humid day, and you're only taking in water, your risk is lowering your blood sodium levels, and that can be dangerous. That's what we call hyponatremia, which is low blood sodium.” (41:49)“A general way to carb load without getting too nuts and counting grams of carbohydrate and ruining your total diet is by shifting your calories to eating more carb-based foods and reducing the fat and protein in your diet.” (56:54)“The purpose of carb loading is to really maximize that muscle glycogen. And it's been shown that it possibly could increase your performance by three percent. But the downside is...
