5 Reasons You Get Burnt Out From Exercise

Fikayo says: He's 25 years old and he's started to plateau with his training and dip in performance. Every time he tries to push beyond the plateau, his body burns out or he feels sick. He's wondering if you have experienced this before, or if you have any advice for what he's going through? Thanks so much!

How To Use Light To Boost Testosterone & Sperm Production

Dave says: He's calling from Australia. He wants to say thank you for all the amazing content you produce. He has a question about testosterone and sperm production as it relates to infrared. His wife and him are trying to have their first child in the next few months and he currently practices hot yoga once per week. It's a far infrared style of hot yoga at 38 degrees Celsius. Do you think that would interfere with sperm production and testosterone production?

10 Natural Alternatives To Common Medications

Jen says: She's a huge fan of the show and she feels like her quality of life has improved so much since she started listening to you. She has a question. She's trying to do more natural healing - taking turmeric for inflammation etc.  Can you give a quick run down on ways she can replace ibuprofen, heartburn medication, mood enhancers etc- just the basic natural alternatives to everyday medications?

In my response, I recommend: -Curcumin (by Thorne) -Sleep Remedy (with melatonin) -Fish Oil (SuperEssentials) -Bergamot Orange and Peppermint oil (essential oil) -Alpha Lipoic Acid (Thorne) -Vitamin D/K blend (Thorne) -Quercetin -Bitter Melon Extract -Ceylon Cinnamon

How CytoDetox Works

Theresa says: She's wondering if you still like the Cytodetox?
