THE CHRISTMAS Rx: 2012

READERS SUMMARY: 1. WHAT ARE MY FAMILIES CHRISTMAS Rx for YOU AND YOURS. 2. DO WE NEED A Rx TO CHANGE THE WORLD OR JUST OUR OWN WORLD? 3. WHY NO ONE PERSON, OR GOVERNMENT, OR DOCUMENT, WILL ALLOW IT TO HAPPEN.  YOU CAN! 4. DO YOU CONTINUALLY TRY TO FIND YOURSELF OVER CREATING YOURSELF? 5.  WHAT ARE THE THINGS THAT YOU MIGHT CONSIDER PUTTING ON YOUR CHRISTMAS LIST THIS YEAR?   I have enjoyed sharing my ideas with you all  the past few years and on this Christmas Eve I wanted to share my Christmas Rx with you.  I wrote this to myself a while ago,  and mailed it to myself that year so that I would get myself right before Christmas that year.  I had to edit it a bit to get it up live here for you today but the gist of the meaning I was trying to reenforce to me is still here.  It had a profound effect on me and I saved it in my journal.  I wanted it to help me change and see targets I could and would not allow myself too.  So today, I decided to dust it off and share it […]

Winter Solstice Special Blog: “The Inger Effect”

This is a new guest blog from a forum member named Inger, who you can find on our website forum. She has had an amazing transformation! I thought on my favorite day of the year, I would share with a story to warm your heart. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Hi. I am Inger. I want to share a bit from my journey with you, as I am so thankful for the huge benefits I have gained from this site. It has opened my eyes in so many ways and helped me understand. Thank you, Jack, for letting me share.

I love to think about this path as a journey towards waking up my 6th sense. I love that. This is so much more than just about foods, body shape, anything like that. It is so deep and broad; it is huge! I am in love. It is like I am part of the huge, beautiful universe, a oneness I often feel deep in my bones these days that is just amazing and peaceful. Sometimes I feel like I hear music inside me, music of joy. But it is totally silent around me. How magic is that?

DOES WHERE YOU LIVE ACTUALLY MATTER?

Many of my forum members and FB friends have noticed that I have been doing lots of traveling the last three months. Many of my close friends think they know why I am actually doing it but they would be wrong. I have been thinking about a bio hack for about 5 years now, on how humans adapt to dissimilar environments epigenetically from where their genome was created. I have often wondered if our ability to rapidly and dramatically alter our way of life may create an environmental mismatch in our cellular structure that could hurt us.

THE DOPAMINE Rx = GOOD CHOICES OR BAD

We learn best when we move through our environment. Moving naturally is how humans learn best. This is why even those stricken with severe Alzheimer’s disease tend to improve cognitive performance with even mild exercise. Natural movement stimulates cortisol which increases neuron growth in our hippocampus to increase our ability to learn. Neural science tells us this and it is proven in how humans act and react to environmental stimuli to learn.

THE CHANGE Rx

I believe your “health estate plan” must incorporate a “learn by doing” framework. If you want to improve your former self , spend six months volunteering in a hospital making connections with doctors and healthcare workers and see what you learn about their industry. You might find out that few people actually get better despite the actions of many to help them do just that. Hopefully this will make you curious whether as to what you might consider doing to improve your own health than what you are currently doing. You are the only one who has your best interests at heart. If you are not good enough for your time, who are you really good for?

E=MC2: MAKING FACTOR X ACTIONABLE

READERS SUMMARY: 1. How does the fossil record prove that epigenetics is the most dominant factor in biology today? 2. How does this lack of insight create a huge mismatch for patients trying to get to Optimal? 3. Does epigenetics change they way we think? 4. Does the way we think alter our biology and can it alter the medicine we practice? 5. How do we make this actionable for patients? In the famous equation E=mc2 we all know that the speed of light is the most important variable in the power of the equation. This has become the logical syntax of science the last 100 years. This is why a nuclear weapon has the energy it does from two small blocks of metals that get exploded into us. The equation is now being challenged by new wave scientists. In fact, one of them spoke at the TEDx Nashville event I participated in and I found his talk fascination on many levels. I love people who challenge scientific dogma. Might there be a similar ‘weighted or squared factor’ in biology that does the same thing to a biologic system? Might that one factor have the same magnitude on modern man? […]

BOOK REVIEW 1: Make Shift Happen & Sweet Potato Power

READERS SUMMARY:   1. WHAT BOOKS AM I READING NOW AND WHY? 2. WHY AM I WRITING BOOK REVIEWS IN A BLOG? 3. I THINK SOME PEOPLE HAVE IDEAS WE ALL NEED TO SHARE WITH THE WORLD? 4. I RARELY DO BOOK REVIEWS UNLESS THE BOOKS ARE WORTH IT, THESE TWO ARE. It’s time to begin packing for Jimmy Moore’s low carb cruise so I wanted to launch a post on some of the books I have been reading and spot light two of them that I think are really good reads. I have shared them with my members and my patients and now I want to share my thoughts with my blog readers. How to make your ‘I cans” always succeed your “I can’ts” First up, is Dean Dwyer’s first book called “Make Shift Happen” I met Dean for the first time at Paleo fx and we happened to be a on a panel together and his responses to audience questions really caught me be surprise. He was one of the most amazing breathes of fresh air in Austin I met. We spoke and he told me he wrote a book and I told him I’d love to read […]

TEDx NASHVILLE 3/31/2012 PRESS RELEASE

TEDxNashville 2012–Brain surgery without a scalpel: Nashville neurosurgeon Dr. Jack Kruse’s third experiment revealed Nashville, Tenn.–In June of 2011, Dr. Jack Kruse began blogging about his findings as a neurosurgeon and formerly-obese American. After tearing the meniscus in his knee, he wasn’t satisfied with the prognosis from conventional medicine about his obese condition, experiencing the frustration of a debilitated patient firsthand. Determined to find a path back to health, he read over 5,000 articles in 18 months and set up three ground-breaking “thought experiments” to explore key neurological pathways affecting optimal health and longevity. Two were validated first using himself as the experimental subject, when he subsequently lost 77 lbs in three months and 133 lbs in a year, forever changing the way he treated his patients. Dr. Kruse’s first experiment was the now-popular Leptin Rx Reset, a step-by-step process which leverages circadian biology to reset leptin sensitivity, the key to metabolism, optimal health and longevity. Within three months of the blog’s release, www.JackKruse.com was getting over 10,000 unique visitors a month and a thread was started on a popular forum about his Leptin Rx Reset that to date, has received over a million visitors and 21,000 comments. In February […]

MY TOP TEN PALEOFX MOMENTS:

READERS SUMMARY: 1. WHAT HAPPENED? 2. WHO ROCKED YOUR WORLD? 3. DID I MEET ANY STARFISH? 4. ARE WE HEADED FOR A TRAIN WRECK OR ARE WE BUILDING A DREAM? 5. DID PaleoFX RAISE THE BAR FOR THIS GRASS ROOTS MOVEMENT OF PERSONAL EMPOWERMENT? I am back and very tired yet extremely energized by what went down in Austin. I wrote this on the plane ride home. I met some paleo luminaries for the first time, and I met a lot of people who were just lit on fire by this conference. PaleoFX was billed as where theory meets the practice of Paleo world. There is little doubt that the PaleoFX organizing team met their goal and fulfilled their mission statement. This event was launched in 150 days and to be there and see how professionally things were run was just jaw dropping for me. I honestly had no idea what to expect after AHS inaugural event last year at UCLA. My first day down in Austin was hectic. My flight was a bit late and the navigation in my rental car took me an hour away from the University of Texas Spark Center. I was due to speak at […]

On The Eve of PaleoFX…

READERS SUMMARY: 1. For those of you not going to PaleoFX here are my thoughts leading into the conference. I want to share them with you tonight. 2. Most of what follows were my prepared words for the opening remarks tomorrow…I decided to scrap them tonight. 3. I decided to make it raw and personal instead… 4. Transformation requires you to dig deep and reach for the truth inside of you. So that is what I am going to do tomorrow. WHAT IS PaleoFX to me? How do we lead a transformation in our society? How does the theory we espouse become the practice we seek? The ideas we espouse must become the ideas we preach collectively to show the world our vision of reality. The real key is that people must learn that finding their optimal self is just as simple as reactivating an epigenetic program that is wired into our owner’s manual. It has become my job to teach people this…and mental visions of those transformations make my job easier. Where do you start a new movement that begins with personal change? There are many theories on how to begin this, but how do we lead the mediocre […]

PERI-OPERATIVE OPTIMAL SURGICAL CONSIDERATIONS

READERS SUMMARY: What might you consider pre and post op before your surgery? These all need to be cleared with your surgeon before starting! In an ideal situation, patients undergoing surgery will have adequate time before the operation to prepare themselves emotionally and physically. This preparation will likely include dietary supplementation, as well as mental and emotional preparation. The healthier patients are when they go into surgery, the healthier they are likely to be during the postoperative phase.  If they are a progressive patient suggest some brain training pre op with biofeedback or transcendental meditation.  It has an amazing effect of decreasing the need for post op narcotic pain meds for pain control.  The less pain meds one takes, the less complications one will face too.   I also recommend that patients with poor glucose control discuss intensive insulin therapy with the surgeon before surgery. Specifically adding 500 mgs of reservatrol for 2 weeks prior to and after the surgery can cut insulin needs as well. Studies indicate that surgery-induced insulin resistance, leading to elevated glucose levels during surgery, raises the risk of complications and death. Intensive insulin therapy, a procedure in which glucose levels are closely monitored during surgery, can […]

The Rewarding Feeling of Safe Starches

READERS SUMMARY:   WHY SHOULD WE QUESTION EVERYTHING? WHAT IS THE SOURCE OF ALL CHOICE? WHERE MIGHT THE REWARD IN SAFE STARCHES TRULY LIE? HOW GOOD IS YOUR NEOLITHIC BRAIN AT SENSING YOUR PALEOLITHIC BRAIN? DOES QUANTUM MECHANICS PROVIDE AN EXPLANATION FOR THE PARADOX OF CHOICE? I took a stroll through some of my favorite sites last night because I could not sleep well (added back a safe starch ironically yesterday, too) because I have some big things on my mind, and it seems some of the doubters are beginning to see the magic in my Quilt document.  I remember when I posted it and how I was ridiculed in some places.  I just sat back and took it all in because I fully expected that response.  In fact, I told one of my internet friends, Dexter Yard, that I did this by design for a reason.  I went as far as emailing a copy of the document to him to look over before it ever was posted on the Internet.  His reply was much more kind and subdued than what I faced publicly when I launched the document.  He told me he felt that this was not going to […]

The Paleo Summit: Is The Paleo Diet The Answer?

So what is the Paleo Summit to me? For me, it is where unconventional thoughts lead to stunning results! Come and listen to what we put together for free! Sean Croxton, of Underground Wellness, called upon me to talk about some stunning results. When Sean and I spoke, I was putting the finishing touches on a pretty epic bio hack to really address this with a real world N-1.  Many of the gurus and experts will cite papers and research. Yet, I decided to use my primal instinct to bridge the gap to answer the question for myself.  After 35 years of thinking and reading, I think I might have stumbled upon the answer to why the Paleo diet is the only adaptation a human may need to attain the road to Optimal! In 2012, I will be unleashing the most counterintuitive theories that the paleo-sphere has ever thought of.  I will show you how one factor in our evolutionary history may just hold the key to what precisely is optimal is for us all.  The one fact might predetermine precisely what we should be eating, instead of what we can eat.  Many paleo forums are filled with macronutrient options that we have […]

WHY PERSPECTIVE MATTERS?

READERS SUMMARY: 1.  CIRCADIAN BIOLOGY NEEDS TO BE YOUR BIGGEST CONCERN AND NOT YOUR FOOD 2. WHY HAVING AN EVOLUTIONARY ADVANCED BRAIN MAYBE A DETRIMENT AT TIMES 3. THINK ABOUT WHY YOU FEEL AND THINK THE WAY YOU DO BEFORE YOU DO SOMETHING 4. THINK ABOUT WHAT IS SAFE BEFORE YOU EAT IT 5. CHANGING YOUR PERSPECTIVE MAY OPEN YOUR MIND TO NEW POSSIBILITIES FOR YOUR STALLS   Circadian biology is so fundamental to sleep and metabolism but few people realize just how important it really is.  It is more important than your macro or micronutrients.  Most of you reading this really do not buy this because of the questions I get asked and all the comments I have seen made on FB, twitter, blogs, and on internet forums.  The blogosphere is tied to macronutrient ratios.  It is a fact that our neolithic mind has burned into our conscious beliefs.  This post is about showing you why you might want to consider changing your perspective on things related to what you eat.  What you feel like eating does not mean it should be what you are designed to eat.  What you can eat safely, does not mean it should be what we are designed […]

Hey Lyme Disease, Meet Leptin!

I do not believe there is a more misunderstood disease by conventional medicine than Lyme disease and Fibromyalgia. Many healthcare providers do not even think FM exists to the determent of millions of people. It is estimated that ten million people suffer from these diseases today. 75% of them are women. The reason for that is because leptin is involved, and as you all know it is a sexually dimorphic hormone. These are diseases that affect the fat cells in all parts of our body. They also cause issues with adiponectin, which is also sexually dimorphic. Many women will be glad to know that fact. Understanding Lyme disease actually helps you understand FM very well.

Both diseases cause abnormal activation of an immune mediated pathway that takes over cytokine production in the fat cells that line our GI tracts, respiratory tracts, sinuses, and many other organs. Most know that Lyme is most commonly associated with a tick bite, and the host gets infected with spirochete bacteria. What most do not know, is that this tick liberates a neurotoxin that causes most of its symptoms. This neurotoxin activation is common to many diseases just like Lyme disease. FM, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Sick building Syndrome, and mold exposure are just a few. All these diseases activate the same pathway, and this is why they have features that are quite similar clinical findings. Making these connections clinically helped me tie this all together. Since I came to a deep understanding of how important leptin is to our body several years ago, it made complete sense to me to think all these diseases might have a leptin link because of the constellation of symptoms were all tied to specific cytokine activation. This is precisely how leptin resistance develops too. This is how a change of perspective might help a physician see a problem in a new way. It is precisely how Evolutionary medicine prism has allowed me to come to bio-hack just about any disease we face as a species now.
