Thomas Cowan, MD shares compelling evidence that ‘charged water’ drives peripheral circulation and the heart’s job is to actually slow this down.

This discussion is super fascinating (and may challange your biases).

04:38 Filtering your water leaves water unstructured and demineralized. It needs to be remineralized and placed in a vortex to be restructured.
08:05 In the 1920s Rudolph Steiner said that the heart does not pump the blood.
12:15 Blood goes slower as it proceeds through the arteries until it gets to the capillaries where it stops, shimmies and gets going again.
16:07 Your heart does not have the force you would need to push blood through your blood vessels.
20:07 The motive for movement is at the level of the capillaries.
03:39 There are 4 phases of water. The water in cells is in a gel phase.
24:46 The gel layer of your cells is always negatively charged, which means it has separated the charges. There are positive charges in the water inside the cell. The positive ions/protons repel each other and start the water flowing.
26:50 Water cannot go up a tube more than 33 feet before the pressure of the weight of the water is too heavy.
27:30 Xylem tubes in plants are lined with hydrophilic proteins that separate the charges, shifting fluid using the same method as your body uses to move blood up your veins.
28:20 A vein is a thin walled tube with hydrophilic surfaces that creates a gel layer.
29:12 Muscle contraction in the legs is not a primary mover, though it is a contributor.
30:24 Your heart stops the blood. Incoming flow hits the cavity of the left ventricle which contains a valve. The heart holds the blood back a few milliseconds, converts the laminar flow into a vortex.
32:12 Your heart participates in the movement of the blood, but not because of a pushing of the walls. Movement comes from the movement of the blood.
33:07 The heart is like a hydraulic ram.
33:45 The efficiency of the hydraulic ram is about 70%. Only 70% comes out each cycle. A pump must always work at 100% efficiency. The efficiency of the heart is 70%.
35:06 Congestive heart failure is when the blood stops moving forward and only a small percentage comes out.
35:17 Since the heart is not pumping, the problem in congestive heart failure is insufficient flow.
36:22 Hypertension and hypertrophy are not the disease, they are the compensation response and therapy.
37:50 Flow is increased with sunlight, direct contact with the earth, good diet, and increased exercise.
38:50 Earthing/grounding causes you to absorb negative ions, a sort of energy source.
41:44 Our ability to make gels is destabilized by the insults of modern life.
42:54 The vortex of blood created by your heart is like a tornado. Vortex is the creative form of life.
44:12 We ignore life force in today’s science.
50:41 Any plant takes water and structures it.
53:55 The structuring of water occurs naturally through the interaction of blood vessels and the natural energy sources that are freely available to us.
54:48 The flow through a hydrophilic tube increases when you place your hand upon it.
01:04:11 The traditional way to eat vegetables is wild and perennial.
01:16:42 Dr. Cowan’s favorite morning activity is going right out to the garden and spending hours there.
01:18:18 Dr. Cowan’s desert island nutrient is eggs.
01:18:58 Dr. Cowan’s elevator pitch is that any form of coercion (ie: going to school, paying taxes, getting vaccinated) is the opposite of freedom.

Key Time Stamps: 


03:03 Steph has been doing keto since 2009. Her mother was going to die from glial blastoma cancer…but, with interventions like keto, she is still alive.
04:48 Steph is keto/carnivore. She is aware of the anti-nutrients in plant foods.
05:04 Steph had her clients use glucometers, track sleep and track digestive issues, starting long before it is popular.
05:59 Animal fats work better for her clients than plant fats.
06:47 She is the 200 grams of fat person. Increasing animal fats tended to increase ketones and her clients began to feel better.
08:06 Steph encourages her clients to avoid “fat bombs”. Instead they should add fat to bone broth, meat broth or fatty tea.
08:58 If you have an energy crisis, you should not be drinking coffee to get through your day. Steph has gotten thousands of people off coffee and they all have done better.
15:08 Steph used to be a pro vert skateboarder and had an accident with a disabling knee injury. She had 10 surgeries and was on crutches for 4 years. She didn’t skate for 18 years. She skates now, but adaptively due to her injuries.
20:01 Steph’s strategy is gym workouts, dietary measures, minimize stress, improve sleep quality and keto. Steph appreciates every physical gain.
21:10 Women need to get out of their head that they will get big bulky muscles.
21:59 You don’t need the gym. You can use body weight and calisthenics or things like it.
22:50 Work out with the posture of a ballerina to maximize gain.
23:38 Food entrains your circadian rhythm.
25:26 Fasting and keto often plays into the obsession to be thin.
28:51 It is important to address the issue that is prompting people to need to fast.
34:16 Steph coaches and has a course to teach people to do low carb/high fat the right way.
35:57 Steph’s desert island nutrient is liver. Everything you need to survive is in it. She eats it every day. Consuming kidney helps with histamine issues and leaky gut.

Key Takeaways: 

04:07 Bret invented the barbell hip thrust exercise, basically a pushup for the glutes.
05:05 Bret is on a quest for maximum understanding glutes, which lead him to a PhD in Sports Science.
08:09 Everyone has a weak muscle that does not respond well to training.
11:11 Glute activation is complicated and individual.
12:52 Published research on physiology is based upon averages.
15:57 Not every body was built to squat or deadlift or whatever, but there is a variation for you. If not, omit it. Pain inhibits muscle activation.
17:46 A study of 200 hips for hip flexion and range of motion showed that hip flexion range was 80 degrees and 140 degrees, a 60-degree spread. The hip extension spread was 5 degrees to 40 degrees.
20:21 Squatting deep is not a prerequisite for glute development.
24:51 Strengthened glutes result in increased activation by your body in movement.
28:41 Old healed injuries can still be perceived by the brain as a threat and pain can continue long after being healed.
29:47 Stretching and foam rolling, for the most part, works on the nervous system.
31:20 Visualization of the contraction of muscles is especially helpful in maintaining strength when recovering from an injury, by working on the nervous system.
32:45 You see better results when you visualize yourself in first person, not watching you do the movement.
50:32 You need a good strength coach who knows all the lifts to help you figure out your weak links.
51:33 No one hurts themselves with hip thrusts done properly.
55:25 In Bret’s experience, the gold standard coach is CSCS certification along with years of internship.
01:00:58 Your knowledge as a coach is a pie chart: 33% is experimental self-experience lifting/training, 33% comes from working with others from all walks of life, and 33% is reading, listening to podcasts, watching videos and attending conferences.
01:04:52 Men have better results by splitting leg day into 2 days: quad day with glutes and a hamstring day with glutes and interspersing this with 3 upper body days.
01:07:18 Women have better results with 3 full body days.
01:12:20 The hormone hypothesis (growth hormone, cortisol and testosterone) of weight lifting is pseudo-science.
01:14:08 Bret prefers dumb bells, body weight and bands for beginners over barbells.
01:16:35 Bret films new videos and writes new programs for his membership program every month.
