In This Episode:

  • Inflammation’s nasty, compelling role in generating fatigue, especially for neuroinflammation and burnout syndrome. 
  • How your cells’ energy generators can shut down or elevate depending on what triggers they receive (and how to hit the right ones)
  • Tap into one of the biggest fundamental discoveries about mitochondria EVER and the two modes that it responds to, depending on what signals you send.
  • How to best conserve your energy and identify the specific factors that trigger the right immune response in your body.
  • Habits to adopt TODAY to set your circadian rhythm to the optimal level for a good night’s sleep — every night.
  • Discover the truth about adrenal fatigue’s existence and the aliases some people use (even though they mean the same thing).
  • Did you know that your brain has a lymphatic system of its own? Learn the regenerating process of ‘brainwashing’ to stay healthy and mentally sharp.

If you find yourself easily worn out and tired, it’s about time you start digging deep into the cause. There may be underlying factors that could be signs of more serious conditions you need to address. Dr. Jockers is joined by Ari Whitten in today’s episode to talk about the controversial adrenal fatigue and to prove if it exists or not.

He shares valuable information about the major function of the mitochondria in boosting and depleting your body’s energy levels. He also talks about the practices, lifestyles, and habits that need to be in place to fix inflammations in the body, clean out the junk that is causing low energy, and promote rebuilding and regenerating.

“Your body is designed to specifically suppress energy levels in the context of those danger signals being present so that more of your overall body’s resources can go to fending off the dangers.”

– Ari Whitten

Paleovalley Bone Broth

When it comes to gut health, bone broth is one of my go-to items I add to my diet. But not all collagen is created equal. Many brands use poor-quality bones and heating methods that remove all of the potent benefits of collagen.

And that is why I choose to use Paleovalley Bone Broth Protein Powder, you can get all the gut healing benefits without the mess from a company that uses only 100% grass-fed and finished cows and is not processed with high heat or extracted with harmful chemicals.

There are no fillers, flow agents or added flavors. There is only ONE ingredient in this product and it’s bovine bone broth protein. That’s it. Hurry and grab yours from Paleovalley.com/jockers to save 15% off today!

LMNT

Today’s episode is also sponsored by LMNT, my go-to electrolyte drink mix that I recommend to anyone who wants to stay hydrated.  Everyone needs electrolytes to function and when you sweat, adopt a low-carb diet, or practice intermittent fasting, your electrolyte needs increase.

If electrolytes aren’t replaced, it’s common to experience headaches, muscle cramps, and fatigue. LMNT replaces these essential electrolytes with NO sugar, NO coloring, NO artificial ingredients, or any other junk.

And it tastes absolutely delicious! I really love all of their flavors, but my favorite is raspberry. As a member of our community, you can claim a free LMNT Sample Pack with any LMNT purchase you make.  This is a great opportunity to try all the flavors for free.
