Nourish your body from the inside out to live a long, happy, and
healthy life. Dr. Anna breaks down the science behind longevity and
explores the key supplements to promote health and reduce
inflammation, how to reduce and avoid the toxins and endocrine
disruptors we face everyday in our lives, and why love is the best
medicine of all.
- [0:15] Longevity begins in the womb. What we do for our health
matters for generations. In the past episode Dr. Anna talked about
a number of different treatments that were meant to help maintain a
pregnancy, but instead resulted in a plethora of negative effects
generations down the line.
- [1:05] There are age reversal techniques that everyone can do
that can have tremendous genetic and generational positive
- [1:40] The healthier we are as a community and with our
relationships the longer we live with a high quality of life. Love,
laugh, and give is a great mindset to start your day and end your
- [3:50] Treatments can have generational effects. Endocrine
disruptors like Diethylstilbestrol (DES) were touted as a
wonderful, universal drug for pregnant mothers but resulted in
numerous negative effects.
- [4:50] Dr. Anna recently attended the Da Vinci 50 conference
and Dr. Gregory Church recommended that the FDA should require
third generational animal studies before releasing a medication out
to the public. Most medications today do not meet that
- [6:30] Protect yourself from toxic overload and hormone
disruptors. In many places, disruptors can even be found in tap
- [7:30] Another key area that affects our longevity is our
epigenetics. If you don’t have your 23andMe health yet, it can be a
good idea to get it. Knowing how well you methylate will determine
the best types of supplementation for you.
- [8:40] You also need to pay attention to toxin exposure. Things
like fireproof treated fabric can be absorbed through the skin, and
particular GMOs can cause issues.
- [10:05] Anything with PCBs is considered highly toxic. Dioxin,
a byproduct from chloride containment processes, can linger in the
environment for years and diminishes the production of thyroid
- [10:50] A recent patient came to Dr. Anna with low
testosterone. Before dealing with the symptom, it’s important to
address the cause of the problem. Her approach was to do an
endocrine toxicity screen and address the thyroid issues.
- [12:40] If you’re suffering from low testosterone, we have to
ask where the testosterone is going. Is it being converted to
estrogen? Is it becoming dihydrotestosterone? These could result in
either man boobs or hair loss, so it’s important to understand what
is going on.
- [13:55] Most of us haven’t been aware of the potent
complication of endocrine disruptors. We are seeing an overall
increase of infertility, early menopause, and early
- [14:20] Phthalates are very common in the plastic drinking
bottles we use. Avoiding BPAs is also important, which are found in
plastics as well as metal food containers. The rule of thumb is to
reduce our exposure to toxins as much as possible.
- [17:30] Off-Gassing of chemicals can also occur in your shower
curtain and dry cleaning bag. Switching to a natural fiber shower
curtain is an easy, quick fix.
- [18:00] Even something as innocuous as the receipts you get at
the store have BPAs on them. Cashiers should think seriously about
using gloves while handling receipts all day.
- [19:10] Seek out products that have the FDA-certified Organic
label. The reverse should be the norm, where foods are labeled as
grown with pesticides, but that’s the reality we live in.
- [20:55] Heavy metals are major endocrine disruptors. Mercury
from fish, and lead in air pollution, all impact fertility and
cause complications in pregnancy. Dr. Anna often tests patients for
heavy metals and recommends natural chelators. Vitamin C and
certain foods like garlic, ginger, broccoli sprouts, and more help
reduce toxic heavy metals in the body.
- [27:00] Chromosome maintenance and repair will improve all the
downstream symptoms. Telomere erosion and genetic errors age us
rapidly. Natural aging can be accelerated through life and
environmental stresses like smoking, high blood sugar, high blood
pressure, and inflammation.
- [27:50] Inflammation accelerates aging universally, from your
hair to your skin to your brain cells. Mitochondria are the
powerhouses of the cell, and when they are functioning poorly for a
number of different reasons, it leads to rapidly declining energy
- [29:15] Anyone with autoimmune issues is affected by rapid
aging. The lower your basal metabolic rate, the more unhealthy you
- [30:30] Glucose regulation is the number one recommendation
from experts in longevity. Keeping your glucose levels steady
throughout the day with a diet like Keto Green will certainly help.
Especially for women going through menopause, a stable blood sugar
and a habit of fasting can drastically improve the quality of your
- [34:10] Sticking with the Keto Green lifestyle leads to more
benefits the longer you persist.
- [34:40] Maintaining a stable glucose level and avoiding the
peaks and valleys of snacking and card heavy meals throughout the
day is a true hack for longevity.
- [34:55] If you’re a poor methylator because of your genetics,
you will age faster if you don’t intervene.
- [36:20] We live in a climate-controlled world, and exposing
yourself to extreme temperatures can have a major positive impact
on your metabolism. Cold plunges have been used for thousands of
years to improve performance.
- [37:10] Supplements can also promote longevity. Things like
turmeric, green tea extract, and resveratrol increase antioxidants
in the body and promote healthy aging.
- [39:10] DHEA levels are something you should also try to keep
high. Supporting the adrenal gland can help your body produce its
own DHEA and keep your levels in the optimal range.
- [40:35] MNM is a precursor to NAD, a powerful anti-inflammatory
and supports the mitochondria.
- [41:25] Dr. Anna breaks down her daily supplementation regimen
which can be found in her Super Woman packs.
- [45:15] Another supplement mentioned during the conference is
spermidine. Certain exercises can help you increase your flow of
this natural longevity-promoting substance.
- [46:40] Stem cell injections have also shown anti-aging
effects. As more science is produced supporting those results, the
more likely it will be the future of anti-aging treatment.
- [48:10] If we have an unhealthy gut, we are unhealthy. Keeping
the gut as healthy as possible is crucial to hormone balance and
- [48:25] Gratitude, meditation, being out in nature, and getting
a good night's sleep are all components of a long, healthy
- [49:25] Most of the time, it’s the things we say no to that
make the most difference in your life.
- [49:50] Love is the best medicine. Love, laugh, and give is the
mantra that Dr. Anna lives by and recommends others to do as
