THE TRUTH ON POOP - Response to Joe Rogan's comment - PODCAST #18

I've been holding this podcast back for a few months. I was waiting for the new studio to get on it's feet. We're getting close enough so here it is!

No guest this week! Just me talking shop about one of the most important concepts in achieving next level health. I was listening to Joe Rogan chat with the directors of Cowspiracy on his podcast when he mentioned that he thought the idea of retained wastes in the intestines is a myth.

My fifteen years as a colonic therapist and the life long work of Dr. Hiromi Shinya shows us otherwise. In this podcast we look at the colonoscopy footage proving that not everything that goes in comes out.

WARNING: THIS ONE GETS GRAPHIC

AWAKEN THE WARRIOR WITHIN YOU - Natalia Maldonado - PODCAST #17

Happy New Year everyone! There were all sorts of delays and technical difficulties on this podcast, but it turns out that the timing is absolutely perfect. January is a fresh start for many of us and motivation, accountability and inspiration can be invaluable during this process.  That's where my dear friend Natalia Maldonado also know as New York's Wellness Warrior comes in. We sat to discuss the way she transformed challenging life events into fuel to deepen her practice of yoga, fitness and PMA (Positive Mental Attitude). Somewhere in the mix of all that we talked about poop, colonics, Tony Robbins, Cro-Mags, Ronda Rousey, and all sorts of other off topic stuff. Listen to find out what else!

DR. FRED BISCI - Consequences of a fruitarian diet - PODCAST #14

Dudes! If you’re some next level vegan, raw food, aspiring genius then you don’t want to miss this epic podcast! I was cycling through the park a few weeks ago and somewhere in between the Morrissey and Wu Tang an old episode of Vitality Radio started playing. For those that don’t know (basically everyone) I used to have a radio show on tribecaradio.net with my ex-business partner Donna Perrone. To be honest I usually cringe when I hear it. I was super uptight, inexperienced and nervous when we were making that show. However, some of our guests were amazing. David Wolfe, Pat Rooney (aka Pat the Plumber) and Dr. Fred Bisci to name a few. The episode that popped up had Dr. Fred Bisci as our guest. That show aired March 20th 2008 and raw food mania was still at it’s peak. We had some real deal conversation on complete lifestyle change, deep tissue cleansing and natural healing. It’s from a time when a majority of our clients were into spiritual raw foodism and radical health seeking. People were willing to go deep into cleansing with excitement and passion. I love and miss that part of the work. I rarely get to discuss these things deeply anymore. So this was such a nice surprise to hear on that bike ride! 

I took two shows that we did with Dr. Bisci that day and I pulled all of the gems out and put them together into a 50 minute podcast. It's such important content. 

Here’s what we discussed: 

- Spiritual grounding to overcome food cravings

- How toxicity and poor tissue quality passes from mother to child

- Becoming too clean for our highly toxic world 

- Colonics and cellular gas diffusion

- The consequences of a fruitarian diet

- His personal diet and lifestyle

MAKE FRESH, RAW, PROBIOTIC SUPERFOOD SAUERKRAUT IN MINUTES

Dudes, I've been pushing the fermented vegetables a lot lately. It's for good reason. Probiotics are of exceptional importance these days. Especially with the recent discovery of antibiotics becoming less and less effective against pathogenic microbes. Natural immunity is more important than ever. Here's the thing, probiotic supplements can be highly therapeutic, but expensive. Dr Mercola had probiotic levels of fresh, raw sauerkraut tested and concluded that one 16 ounce jar of sauerkraut contained probiotic levels equal to eight bottles of probiotics. 

16 ounce jar of sauerkraut ($3) = 8 bottles of probiotic supplements ($367.92)

It's a no brainer. And absolutely delicious. Watch the Bexlife video and click the link below to grab our step by step eBook. 

An easy to understand, step by step guide to creating fresh fermented vegetables in your home kitchen. Featuring basic sauerkraut, vegan kimchi, fermented hot chilies, pickled beets, and many more. The most powerful, diverse and affordable source of gut friendly bacteria is found in fresh fermented vegetables.

This quick start guide to home kitchen fermentation includes: 

  • A step by step formula for making both basic sauerkraut and kimchi
  • A simple, yet complete understanding of the science behind fermentation
  • Tips on ingredient selection, fermentation supplies and storage tricks
  • A variety of recipes for preserving seasonal ingredients

As usual, we discussed pressing questions from the interwebs about nutrition, detoxification and natural living. Then Bex accused me of standing on toilets. Apparently I'm "too natural". Whatever. 

Here's what we discussed:

  • A quick refresher of V=P-O (Vitality = Pressure - Obstruction) and how to balance animal foods in the diet.

THE SECRET BEHIND ALL DETOX DIETS - Bexlife Q&A - PODCAST #9

Bex received more questions from the Q&A video series we shot last month and we decided to do a follow up. I finally remembered to discuss V=P-O! Professor Arnold Ehret's foundational formula that is the basis of all detox practices. And the funny thing is no one understands it or even knows about it. Including most authors of "detox" books or manufacturers of "detox" products. 

On top of that here's what Bexlifers wanted to know: 


Do these 3, 10, 21 day cleanses really work? 

Are supplements necessary if you eat healthy?

Is sugar inherently bad or is it the condition of the body that ingests the sugar?

ANGELICA KITCHEN - Dodging bullets to bring the farm to NYC - PODCAST #8

In 1996 there was only one place I wanted to work. Angelica Kitchen. Macrobiotic in it's roots, dedicated to organics, loyal to local farmers and foundational to the organic and vegan movement. It is the cornerstone of vegan cuisine, always pushing new boundaries while maintaining everything good about classic vegan food. Before the words, locavore, raw, artisinal and handcrafted made their way into our everyday vocabulary Angelica Kitchen was creating a food culture that transformed the culinary landscape we experience today. I was fortunate enough to serve 7-8 years as the pastry chef. 

For this podcast I was joined by Leslie McEachern, the owner of Angelica Kitchen for 33 years. We were also joined by Chef Scott Winegard the Director of Culinary Operations for Matthew Kenney Cuisine and a long time friend and co-worker of mine since the mid nineties at Angelica. 

In this podcast we discuss:

  • The early days of bringing organic vegan food to NYC in one of the most eclectic and turbulent neighborhoods in the downtown area. 
  • Competing with drug dealers for pay phones. 
  • The challenges and art of running a socially responsible business. 
  • Connecting with plant spirits in the deep woods of North Carolina.
