The Bulletproof Coach Program - A Personal Perspective

The Bulletproof Coach Certification Program begins in Australia on November 11th.

Often I get enquiries from prospective students about the Bulletproof Coach training program. They want to know if the program is for them. The short answer is, YES. However different elements of the program appeal to different people. Everyone has different goals. So give some thought to what aspect of the curriculum most appeals to you.

The brain soup: drugs and diets

“Imagine for a moment that we are nothing but the product of billions of years of molecules coming together and ratcheting up through natural selection, that we are composed only of highways of fluids and chemicals sliding along roadways within billions of dancing cells, that trillions of synaptic conversations hum in parallel, that this vast egglike fabric of micron-thin circuitry runs algorithms undreamt of in modern science, and that these neural programs give rise to our decision making, loves, desires, fears, and aspirations.” -  David Eagleman

In the previous articles , we discussed the main ingredients of the human brain and how they work together in broad strokes. This was due to both the complexity of the topic and the fact that we do not know better yet. Despite great advances in neuroscience during the last century, it is safe to say we are still only scratching the surface, and it is important to keep this in mind when we start discussing the effects of drugs and diets on brain function.

This article attempts to explain how external molecules interact with our brain physiology in such profound ways as to change how we process information, the decisions we make, and the feelings inside us. If the explanations seem vague or the examples too circumspect, it is because they are. The best we can say as of now is that drugs and diets change brain neurochemistry. Their mechanisms and the full extent of its effects, however, remain largely obscure.

Bulletproof from a Nurse's Perspective Part 13

Dearest OptimOZ readers, how are you all? Nurse Extraordinaire (Kerrie) here saying Hello!

Seems like…well, it actually has been ages since I last wrote….but I have a good reason. I have been to Athens for practical training in my Bioresonance and Energy course using the Deta Elis professional machine. Mind blowing to say the least…as a country, I love Australia….but we do lag behind a lot of the latest research and trends at times.

What have I been learning? Where do I begin….let’s start with a little organ…called an organelle in the human cell called the Mitochondria. When I did my original nurse training at the Royal Melbourne Hospital thousands of years ago (with Jesus) we learned practically nothing about this important structure. However, 2017 has arrived and we now know that each mitochondria in our cell actually used to be a bacteria! And each one has it’s own DNA. So our DNA is not only located in our nucleus (23 pairs of chromosomes)…but also in our mitochondria! AND we only inherit our mitochondria from our mothers….not from our fathers at all! Which means, if you are concerned
about mitochondrial disease or issues with energy, you best look at your mother, grand mother, great grand mother etc…..because what they do with and how they treat their mitochondria will ultimately affect you.

Why is this important? Because we are getting sicker quicker people. I have just completed 6 weeks of clinical placement in hospitals with nursing students. Hand on heart I can tell you that when Jesus and I were training as nurses, we were not seeing young people having heart attacks….we were not seeing young people have strokes…this was the domain of the “older” people…mainly over 75 years.

Now, it is becoming increasingly common to see people in their 30’s, 40’s having major cardiac and cerebral events. What is going on? Is it just about our diet? Well, I believe our diet definitely plays a role…but more than ever I am starting to be convinced by people like Jack Kruse and other courageous crusaders that our bodies are not adapting too well to an artificial light and electromagnetic environment. It is becoming the painful needle in the backside of the “establishment”. We cannot ignore this any longer if we want ourselves and our children to live healthy, disease free lives.

My concern, given our current lifestyle is that our children will get sick and possibly even die well before we do. That is NOT normal and that is NOT how it is meant to be. But they are the ones who have grown up in a completely artificial light environment. They are the ones who are glued to their Facebook, iPhone and computer screens. They are the ones who never get outside because the X box gives them more pleasure. They are the ones who are getting astronomical rates of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, autism, anxiety, depression….they are the ones I am seeing having heart issues and strokes….and everyone sits around and says “how did this happen? He is so young…maybe it’s just in his genes”….. we now know it’s got nothing to do with his genes in 90-95%
of cases. It’s got everything to do with his mitochondria being screwed by his artificial
electromagnetic environment.

People, we need to work on this new addiction together. We need to wake up. In all honesty, healthy fats are so important for your mitochondria. That’s why I love my Brain Octane. But my Blue Light Blocker glasses are what saves me from the hormone disrupting effect of blue light at night. We need technology…I get that. How else could I be sending this to you! It is awesome. But don’t be stupid with it! Blue light at night destroys your melatonin secretion. End of story. Melatonin is essential for life. End of story. Kids will always use technology…but how about encouraging them to use it safely? Limit time they are on the damn things in the first place….they should NOT be taking their phones into their bedrooms at night. Why the hell do they need them? You know what they are doing…they are chatting with their friends all night because their melatonin levels are stuffed and their body doesn’t know if it’s day or night. Lock the damn things in a safe. They can retrieve them in the morning AFTER they have done some walking barefoot in the morning sun….trust me on this. We need to get back to nature. We have become so disconnected it is killing us.

We honestly need to realise that while modern technology is awesome, it is also killing us and our kids. Get your Brain Octane into you and them. They can damn well wear those blue light blocker glasses at night if they must liaise with their friends online…they may not look cool but who gives a stuff if it keeps you and them healthy! They will thank you for it one day…when they are a healthy 90 year old.

Watch this space people. Electromagnetic fields are dangerous. Use with caution. Once again, may the force be with you. I love you all!

Combine Nootropics & Ketosis for Peak Performance

Think of the body as a complex machine designed for the task of living. Like any other machine, how well it performs depends on how efficiently it can convert inputs into outputs. Altering these two factors can optimize performance. Nootropic supplements and ketogenic dieting are two of the best ways to do this, but instead of only using one or the other, the two strategies can be combined to achieve maximum human performance.

Welcome to 2017 OptimOZ Legends!

Hello and welcome to 2017 Optimoz Legends! Let’s not make this a “ground hog year”…..new and exciting times are on the horizon. So let us be a part of the change!

What is really exciting me right now is the concept of Ketosis…yes…it has been around for quite a while but it is finally starting to gain some traction in the mainstream media…it just makes so much sense it kind of seems too simple. Yet again, I see the idea of eating too many carbohydrates as a huge mistake. As Jack Kruse says, we should eat our carbs during long light cycles such as Summer. However, during Winter is NOT the time to be loading up on carbs!!! That’s where our high fat, low- carb diet is essential. We are not ancestrally geared to burn carbs in Winter. And we have not yet evolved to do so.

Could Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Start in the Gut?

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), aka myalgic encephalomyelitis, is a highly disabling and complex condition that still remains very mysterious. According to the World Health Organization, an estimated 1.69% of the world population may be affected by CFS. The set of symptoms that characterise it have been described repeatedly since the 19th century, but given the difficulty in establishing a diagnosis, it wasn’t until 1988 that the term “chronic fatigue syndrome” was coined. Its causes are still unknown, although evidence suggests that chronic low-grade inflammation is one factor. Further, the gut microbiome is helping us paint a clearer picture. View full article →

Brain Octane vs. XCT vs. Coconut - Which MCT Oil is Right for You?

Brain Octane vs XCT vs Coconut Oil

Source

Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT Oil) have dramatically gained in popularity in Australia. MCTs are a subset of saturated fatty acids that, when used appropriately, have unique biological effects ranging from enhanced cognitive performance to accelerated weight loss. MCTs can be found in coconut and palm oil, dairy products, Bulletproof XCT oil and Bulletproof Brain Octane oil. Note that Bulletproof MCT oils are 100% derived from coconut oil. Some other brands may still source from palm oil.

Bulletproof from a Nurse's Perspective Part 11


Well it’s that time of year again everyone. And what a year 2016 has been! I don’t know about you but MANY people I know have found this year to be a bit tough….a year of endings or things finishing. Not necessarily bad….just quite draining. Needless to say, 2017 will herald a year of new things beginning. Wonderful!
