Brain-Based Health and Performance Coach.

Operating as usual


It's that time of year here in the northern hemisphere where you're likely to be spending a lot more time out side in the sun.

Sun light is becoming one of those taboo things that people seem to fear that just doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

Joining the ranks of other healthy things like :
- Meat
- Dairy
- Eggs
- Fruit

Sunlight is a perfectly normal and healthy part of life.

Yet not a day goes by in the summer that people aren't living fearful of it.

What if it wasn;t the sun that was the problem though?

What if it was all the other garbage in the foods we eat and supplements we take that was actually making us more susceptible to damage from the sun?

PUFA, Poly Unsaturated Fatty Acids, are a major driver of the reaction we have to sunlight.

Over the last 70 years, we have been steadily adding more and more PUFA to the food supply and accumulating more and more PUFA in our tissues.

Would it also surprise you that we have seen an increase in skin cancer along those same lines?

So what if instead of fearing the sun, we started challenging the idea that those fats in our diet in increasing amounts are safe and benign and we start accepting the possibility that they may actually be part of, if not the bulk of, the problem?

I actually stopped burning and peeling when I started removing PUFA from my diet years ago.

Down here in sunny Texas, we have a bigger sun than most, everything is bigger in Texas, but I don't burn like I used to when my diet was full of nuts and seed oils.

Now, obviously, exercise caution if you are going to be outdoors for hours and hours on end.

Stay covered up, hydrated, and don't overdo it.

Just because you feel invincible on a prometabolic diet doesn't mean you are, even if it gets you damn close.

Pain takes place in the brain.

This is not a new idea.

Even Descartes believed there was a pain center in the brain 400 years ago.

While we know now that there isn't a single pain center in the brain, many people still think of pain as something that everyone experiences the same way.

We can say with certainty that they do not.

When it comes to pain...

"You are a special flower" - Dr. Eric Cobb

This paper illustrates that not only do no two people experience pain the same way, the notion of putting people into a one-size-fits-all rehab protocol makes even less sense.

You need what your brain needs.

One of the best ways you can focus on giving your brain what it needs is to assess and reassess your training often.

If you don't know what I mean, that's fine, I will show you precisely how to start adjusting your training and nutrition based on your individual nervous system.

Type the words FREE BOOK below and I will send you my free ebook that covers exactly that and more.

Keep up the great work, you special flower 🌺, you.

The absolute coolest part about neuroscience is the concept of neural plasticity.

Neural plasticity is the rule that says neurons will get stronger, or weaker, depending on how you use your brain.

This is major!

Don't like to exercise?

That's your brain's fault and we can fix that.

Can't stick to a diet to save your life?

That's your brains fault and we can fix that.

Wish you could be a better all-around human?

That's your brain creating that thought and we can help you achieve that.

Whatever you do in life, or want to do in life, your brain is going to be there.

Behind every thought, every tear, every breath, every step of the way, so you better be careful not to take it for granted.

If you do, you will likely end up living a life that haunts you with the ghost of your untapped potential.

If you want to start the process of redesigning your life, from your brain on down to your training, nutrition, and supplementation, you absolutely can.

So instead of thinking you can't change, or that you will always feel the way you do, neural plasticity allows us the capacity to shape our futures for the better, if we want to.

Since you made it this far, I assume you don't want to settle for a mediocre life.

I assume that you are tired of feeling like crud because you should be able to do more.

I also assume that you would love to know exactly how to train your brain for the better, and preferably for free.

If my assumptions are correct, type the word BRAIN in the comments below and I will send you my book on exactly that for absolutely FREE!

If not, no worries.

I'm not going anywhere.

Cholesterol is a life saver.

Cholesterol converts into a hormone called pregnenolone.

Pregnenolone then turns into either DHEA or Progesterone.

These then turn into other hormones such as testosterone, estrogen, cortisol or allopregnanolone.

When you are young and have a rock steady metabolism, you’re making all sorts of hormones.

And when you have a healthy metabolism, you’ll be cranking out active thyroid hormone(T3) faster than you can say “I want to be forever young”

T3 and Retinol, animal-based vitamin A, are necessary to convert cholesterol into pregnenolone and start that hormone cascade.

And as we age, the insults to our thyroid hormone output compound and that converts process slows down.

This will cause cholesterol to accumulate.

Conventional perspective links this to heart disease but that’s been thoroughly disproven.

It’s not the cholesterol that causes the heart disease, rather it’s the decrease in metabolism that causes it.

The decrease in metabolism coincides with an increase in cholesterol.

Did you know you can measure your metabolic status quite easily?

Comment FREE BOOK and I will send you my FREE BOOK which shows you exactly how to do that.


You're Not You When You're Hungry

When you have low blood sugar, your brain knows it. Not only does your brain know it, it shows it. It shows it in how you feel, how you think, and how you interact with others. It can even show up in your empathy or your ability to think rationally.

3 things to improve blood sugar for the brain:

1). Eat regularly and don't skip meals. Too little food or too infrequent of food forces your brain to shunt fuel away from areas of the brain involved in logic and reason and towards areas involved with stress.

2) Vitamin B1 will help you use glucose even better. Better glucose usage makes for better brain usage.

3) Pepcid AC, the heartburn medication, may help you store glycogen better in the liver. Better liver stores of glycogen can help you go longer between meals if you must.

Your system thrives on momentum.

Your system is also highly sensitive to outside forces.

If you’re struggling to lose weight on your current plan of action, that’s your system having a hard time breaking momentum.

If you’re having a hard time making a habit stick, that’s the power of outside forces hindering your change efforts.

The enzymes that help you utilize glucose well, that’s based on the momentum of nutrition and fuel you’re providing to the system.

The ability to respond to outside forces is the rule, not the exception.

Sometimes we respond favorably.

Sometimes we don’t.

If we don’t respond favorably enough times, we start building momentum in the direction we don’t want to.

Sometimes we actually need to rest, in spite of outside forces.

The question to always ask yourself is

“Am I moving in the direction I want to?”

Does it ever feel like health is confusing?

Do you ever feel like on e you start to figure things out, something new comes along and you’re back at square one?

Do you ever feel like trying to get control of your health is like sitting in the back seat of a driverless car?

If you are someone that wants to take back control of your health, and you want someone to guide you, I have some great news for you!

Over the last few years, I have really been digging heavy into the research of:

-Human Performance
-Pain Relief
-Gut Health
And more

I have now spent the last 8 years applying what I have learned to my private clients and have helped them to see some profound results.

However, a lot of people don’t want healp at that level of depth.

So what I have created is a weekly teaching session for people who want to know more.

If you just want to know how you can think wothout brain fog, alleviate aches and pains, move better, fix a struggling gut, and age without feeling old, then this program may be a great fit for you.

Starting October 7th
We will meet every Friday and discuss one key subject at a time while teaching you the best ways to make the key choices for YOU around this information.

The end of each session will include a chance to interact and ask me questions directly.

You will also have a say in what topics we cover as we move forward with the curriculum.

The serotonin theory of depression is continuing to crumble.

The study above adds yet another piece of evidence against the theory that serotonin is responsible for happiness.

In this case, increasing serotonin by administration of an SSRI drug largely negated the ability of human subjects to learn through positive reinforcement(reward) and while strongly increasing their ability to learn from a negative reinforcement (punishment, fear, etc).

The study is even more valuable due to the fact that not only it shows serotonin as a substance associated with (and causative of) pathology, it directly implicates SSRI drugs as a powerful means of creating more fear-based decision-making rather than joy and happiness being the driver for behavior.

Have you ever had a hard time making the decision of starting that hard task you know you need to start?

Imagine every time you gave up on your diet entirely because you had one meal that wasn’t supposed to happen.

That’s what this study is showing as the fault of serotonin.

Management of gut health is absolutely key to controlling and preventing too much serotonin production in the gut.

Carrot salad gets the spotlight here.
🥕 1-2 raw carrots, grated or peeled
Rinse in a colander until water runs clear.
Add some coconut oil and vinegar and some salt and pepper.

I have also been using oat bran with clients lately with pretty good success.

That’s worth trying as well.

Enjoy your healthy gut and in turn, all that life can offer you.

Just because it's trendy doesn't mean it's healthy.

Avoiding certain things in the diet like gluten, sugar, dairy, carbs, and joy, may "help" initially but that doesn't necessarily make what your doing the best long-term strategy for your health.

When you avoid carbohydrate fuel sources, your body adapts to using fat for energy.

In order to access that stored fat, you need to increase cortisol.

Cortisol can help blunt some of your symptoms.

You may very well feel "better" but at what cost?

Intermittent fasting works similarly.

In order to access stored energy when you don't have food coming in, you still gotta lean into cortisol.

Long-term, cortisol will decrease activation in key brain areas involved with logic, reason, personality, and cognition.

Short-term, you may feel great but it will eventually catch up to you.

Play the long game with your health.

Build up metabolic resilience rather than fear.

Prometabolic approach for the win.


This is my favorite concept in how the brain works. ⁣

Your brain can AND will change. ⁣

And how it changes will determine your future. ⁣

And all of your life up to this moment has shaped the response you’re having to reading this post⁣

Whether you have back pain or brain fog, sleep issues or gut problems, asthma or depression, your brain is heavily involved in controlling that process.

And you can change your 🧠 !

You can rewrite your destiny and make your future anything you want it to be.

Good food and great activation can go a long way in changing your life for the better. ⁣

And with enough effort in the right direction, the sky is the limit.



I am releasing a weekly subscription service full of fantastic gems of knowledge I've learned from my many years of nutrition, fitness, and neuro.

Each week you will have access to me as I cover a specific brain health and prometabolic topic each and every week.

More details to come but if you are excited, drop a 🎉 in the comments below!

I'm so stoked to share all of this with you.


As I look at this list, Im thinking we’re going to need two livestreams to cover all this.

So it’s settled.

One this coming Sunday 8/21 one the following Sunday 8/28

Same time for both:
1pm Est
12pm CST
11am MST
10am PST

See you soon!



Going Live on IG this Sunday!

Your boy is back!

I’ve been so busy coaching and teaching that I haven’t had time to do an IG live in way too long.

But fret not fraulein, it’s finally happening.

Truthfully I love teaching and these live Q and A sessions are an absolute blast.

I’m probably only going to be doing them a maximum of 1 per quarter for a while as my schedule is filling up quickly.

That said, I still have some room for questions so if you want, send me any and all questions you have and I will cover them this Sunday live!

See you soon space cowboy!



The idea that acidity is the basis of cancer actually stems from the research of Otto Von Warburg. ⁣

He found that cells that got stuck in a glycolitic state, even in the presence of oxygen, were creating tons of lactate as a byproduct. ⁣

Lactate is the result of stress-based energy metabolism and is a sign of deranged mitochondrial functioning. ⁣

Warburg found that if he could reverse this process and get the cells to break out of glycolysis and shift into deeper oxidative phosphorylation, cancer would be averted. ⁣

Simultaneously you would see less lactate, hence the low acidity hypothesis. ⁣

CO2 can lower your pH by way of carbonic anhydrase. ⁣

Given how powerful CO2 is in disease prevention and longevity, yet simultaneously it lowers pH, that alone should make someone question the acid basis of disease. ⁣

Breathe right and eat right and manage your stress. ⁣

Whatever money you’re now saving by not buying green drinks, you can buy me a coffee with that sometime. ⁣

PS, don’t miss out on my newsletter. You can click the link in my bio and the hit the button for the Free Video. That’s all you gotta do boo. ⁣

See you soon
