Key Takeaways

  • The goal is always to become more of who we are, not become something we’re not
  • Challenge the system; look for new solutions to health and aging
  • We’re on the brink of a major regenerative health movement
  • If we tackle aging upstream, we have a shot at solving problems at the root cause
  • It’s worth the time and expense to invest in diagnostics not covered by traditional insurance – you’ll have a better shot at catching problems early and setting yourself up for successful intervention

Tony Robbins’ Health Story

  • Tony’s journey around health started at 19 years old but he has long been consumed with a feeling he was going to die of cancer
  • Tony was diagnosed with pituitary cancer in his early 30s (from his innate high level of human growth hormone)
  • We’re so consumed with COVID, we’re missing the rest of the picture in health and our bodies
  • If you have a health problem, you want to know about it – even if you don’t have a health problem, you should strive to maximize the quality of your life
  • Get a second opinion: research shows that the first opinion is the same as the second opinion only 12% of the time
  • According to Harvard, the average half-life of a medical education is 18-24 months – meaning half of what they’ve learned is out of date in less than two years
  • Four years ago, Tony Robbins took a bad fall and badly injured his shoulder and got Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field (PEMF)

Aging, Science & Medicine

  • We’re at the tip of a regenerative health movement
  • “Aging could be the root cause of so many diseases, but as a society, we’re conditioned to think it’s inevitable.” – Marie Forleo
  • If we tackle aging upstream, we have a shot at solving problems at the root cause
  • “Your DNA is not your destiny.” – Tony Robbins
  • Sirtuins: seven master genes that turn on and off various genes, clean up DNA, reduce inflammation, and fuel mitochondria
  • NAD+ fuels sirtuins but drops by 50% at the age of 50
  • Nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) is a well-known, well-studied NAD booster
    • The MNM half-life is short so stability is a problem – Metro biotech NMN supplement will be cleaner than current solutions (will be released in 18-24 months)
  • Sometimes what you think is aging (brain fog, fatigue) could be toxic metals from things like contaminated fish
  • If you are proactive about diagnostics, you can catch the disease early and protect your health
  • Women: monitor and track estrogen & progesterone to optimize hormone replacement therapy that may be needed during menopause
  • Mindset matters! With placebos and placebo effect – the bigger the intervention, the more your brain believes its effect is therapeutic
  • Alzheimer’s breakthroughs are happening – we’re learning that neuro-inflammation is disrupting the ability to recall memories but the memories are there and new studies are focused on restoring memories
