Medicine today teaches doctors what drug to use to deal with certain symptoms

Instead of showing them how to support your body’s natural healing powers

It’s a bloody scam
So much ancient healing knowledge has been simply discredited by the scientific community

for the sake of profits

And its a shame

This doesn't apply to the life saving technologies that have come with the advancement of medicine

Of course
The point is your body is more powerful than you've been lead to believe

Many doctors are true healers and have woken up to the unfortunate state their profession is in

They realize that the human health isn't just based on winning the genetic lottery
What you eat

The environment you live in

The exercise you do

All of these things are positive inputs that allow you to activate your body's self healing machine

It's time to empower patients

Help them learn how their body works

That's how they heal
It's time to pull corporate interests out of Medical education

and start doing what's best for the people

They deserve to know

Confession: I used to work for Big Pharma

But when something eye-opening happened to me

I was forced to “switch sides”

I’ve got a pit in my stomach typing this...

Honestly scared to share this on the Internet

But it has to be done, so here we go:

We’d all love to live in a "perfect world", right?

A world where we're all happy, healthy and stress free

But it's just not how the modern world works

Even me, the “Health Guy”

I’ve had a tons of health issues

So get ready for my most intimate post yet👇
Picture yourself watching a great movie

Or playing a video game

You know the feeling when eerie music is playing

And you know something bad is about to happen?

That’s how I used to feel. 24/7.

No bad thing was actually happening

But that's how anxious I used to be, daily

Here’s why I felt like a fraud for almost 2 years:

While I was working for big pharma…

(bet you didn’t know I used to work for the “other team”)

My own health was a disaster.

Quick Thread
Real talk...In 2014 I had crippling anxiety & zero energy

At work?

I was helping my pharma employer push out products.

But at home?

Those very same products were doing nothing for me…

Even when I needed them the most...
Crazy because, I was making good money

Friends + family were proud of me

Living in a gorgeous penthouse apartment

Yet when my iPhone alarm went off in the AM

After lying in bed for 8 hours

I felt like I barely slept 1 hour

No energy, no zest for life, full-on zombie mode

If your gut is a mess

So will your mind be

You have a fine balance of “good” & “bad” bacteria

Mainly in your large intestine

This ecosystem thrives based on what you feed it
Most of your neurotransmitters (brain chemicals) are made by bacteria in your gut

Feeding yourself McDonald’s and Taco Bell everyday suffocates the good ones

While the bad ones grow & multiply

Psychiatric drugs are a huge money-maker

Last year, $27.4 Billion was spent on these medications worldwide

and that number only continues to grow

The question is: why?

Here's a little-known history of the industry that all of you should know about

Mental Illness is not a new thing

Ancient Indian texts describe centers to take care of people with these disorders

In Greece and Rome, Mental health issues were connected to the paranormal

It wasn't until the 19th century where psychiatry became a recognized specialty
For over 150 years, the psychiatric field had no progress

The only solution to help these patients was to put them into wards and observe them

Often to be left there for the rest of their lives

Many unethical procedures were done to these people

Truly unacceptable

When you're stressed:

Less oxygen gets to your brain
Your immune system shuts down
Your body becomes a fat-storing machine

You start to age faster

& put yourself at risk of serious health problems later on


There are ways for you to lower your stress without meds

1. Adaptogens

Known as Tonics in Chinese medicine

They help your body "adapt" to the stresses you experience

The've been used for thousands because they work


Just to name a few
2. B complex

B vitamins are the fuel source to make your neurotransmitters

These brain chemicals control your mood, motivation and relaxation

Making sure your body has enough is vital for dealing with stress

Your stress is under your control

There are 3 pillars you need to consider to better manage it:

Brain chemistry
Adrenal Health
Gut Harmony

Each play a crucial role in your wellbeing

Your stress is a silent fire that slowly kills you

but your body has a natural capacity to deal with it

Health problems like uncontrollable anxiety or sleep problems arise once you lose this innate resiliency
Targeting your brain chemistry is a great starting point for stress management

Your brain uses chemicals known as neurotransmitters to help you stay calm

Serotonin and GABA are both used to bring you into the present moment & relax you, respectively
