You Had The Power All AlongOct 27, 2023
Santiago and Dorothy each travel their own road (one paved with yellow bricks, the other a bit sandier).
Dorothy meets a Tin Man, Santiago meets a King.
Their stories seem very different, yet in the end, they’re exactly the same.
The two protagonists, a girl from Kansas with her little dog Toto and a shepherd from a small village in Spain, are prompted to follow their paths, meeting characters along the way. Characters who challenge them, teach them, and enlighten them.
Both Dorothy and Santiago experience journeys fueled by desire, a desire to find something greater, something as regal as the pyramids, or perhaps something found somewhere over the rainbow.
In the end, they both learn the same invaluable lesson. They had what they wanted all along, right there at home.
This is not an article about The Wizard of Oz or the Alchemist, it’s an article about you and a few hundred million people who are searching for answers, for solutions, for elevation. Along the way, characters show up, some with prescription pads, some with surgical masks, some with energy healing, and others with their own unique twists on what people should and shouldn’t eat, drink, or think about.
It’s a winding road.
Here’s what you need to know.
- If you’re trying to repair a blood sugar irregularity, your problem isn’t a metformin deficiency.
- If you’re trying to resolve an autoimmune or thyroid issue, a drug popularized on musical TV commercials isn’t going to save you.
- And if “nothing works” to bring you to your weight loss goals, get off the winding road and Reboot!
I’ll say it again. Louder.
GET OFF THE WINDING ROAD AND REBOOT!
The Metabolic Reboot is more than a program, more than a system of restoration. It’s a multi-faceted science-based strategy designed and proven to restore the power you’ve had all along, the power the doctors, surgeons, energy healers, and diet centers failed to acknowledge or recognize.
If this isn’t the first time you’ve heard me speak of or offer the Reboot, I’m giving you an immediate opportunity to get off of the wishy-washy maybe-I-should-maybe-I-shouldn’t road. I’ll post a link, right here, right now, for you to register for the group Reboot beginning November 1.
Here’s that Link: REGISTER FOR THE LIVE GROUP REBOOT
In case any voice of discouragement showed up saying “you don’t live in Florida” or “it’s not the right time” or “this is probably just another B.S. program,” I’m providing you a link to email me, to ask me any question, and if you’d like we can set up a time to speak by phone, Zoom, or in person.
Here’s that Link: EMAIL PHIL WITH ANY QUESTION
And now, for those who have come to admit they aren’t in bodies they love, for those who will acknowledge the diagnosis or the burden IS NOT being “healed” by the doctor, the medicine, the scarecrow, the cowardly lion, or even “the Great Oz” . . . for those who have attempted the “just ignore it and it will go away strategy,” and for anyone seeking betterment, I’ll provide some insights, 7 to be precise, that should lead you to take the next step.
READ BEYOND THIS POINT ONLY IF YOU TRULY WANT BETTERMENT.
You’re reading. Good. It has to start with desire.
The next thing I’ll urge you to do, right now, is vitally important.
I urge you to STOP.
Stop thinking, stop acting, stop reacting.
Just stop and clear your head.
I want to share the results of a research study I just immersed myself in. It explains quite a bit about why sooooo many people fall for nonsense, or worse yet, for scams and quackery.
The study, titled The Psychology of Fake News, published in the peer-reviewed journal, Trends in Cognitive Science, explains what I find to be a disheartening and if I’m being fully candid, heartbreaking fact.
People have let go of critical thinking. Their attention spans have been obliterated by Instagram, Reels, posts, and Tiktok.
I know there’s a human tendency to exclude yourself.
“Not me. I’m not affected by this stuff.”
If you’ve ever purchased anything on impulse, especially something that showed up in your Facebook feed or your Amazon “you may also like” list, you’re affected.
The study I referenced reveals that in 2023, American societal beings are groomed and set up as targets for “agenda based marketing” making them vulnerable to every false promise that invades their limbic systems.
Fake news is absurdly effective because the audience can not discern between reality and fake shit.
And so . . . when we look at consumers and their spending, we can only shrug when we find that Ozempic, Mounjaro, Cool Sculpting, and scores of bizarre, impotent, and dangerous solutions capture their attention and their money.
Without delivering the promised result. Or worse yet, delivering a result including harm.
Listen to the disclaimers at the end of any new drug commercial. If you hear the words “may result in anal leakage,” think twice. If you hear the words “may result in death” and you’re still tempted to “try it,” you’ve given up your critical thinking and it’s time to grab it back.
What we do at Biohackers and Infinite Impact is give you back your own power. We can’t make the messaging as sexy as drug companies can, nor can we promise overnight results, but unlike those who “sell” with “fake news,” we will deliver.
We promise we will. Our approach is 100% aligned with science, 100% aligned with nature, 100% aligned with your body’s innate design.
If your blood sugar, your hormones, or your body composition are out of whack, something is interfering with your power. We’ll remove that interference.
With the 21 Day Metabolic Reboot, now being presented live in a Group Setting (one time only) beginning next week (November 1) you’ll go through three distinctive phases.
- You’ll speed metabolism (naturally)
- You’ll mobilize and burn fat (naturally)
- You’ll detoxify, cleanse, optimize immune function, and heal
Best of all, once you go through this remarkable restorative process, you’ll understand how to keep the process going. For life. For real.
We do sell the program, complete with medical evaluation, blood draws, lab reviews, and more for $8,500 but this “before the Holiday Season” LIVE Reboot is only $799. You won’t get the medical components included but you will get:
- A full intake with a Health Optimization and Performance Coach
- The entire Reboot virtual Library with daily downloads (webinars, directions, demos, explanations, and illustrations)
- 3 Live Workshops with me and my Infinite Impact Team of Coaches
- 3 one-on-one sessions
- 3 Full Spectrum Red Light Body Contouring Sessions
- A Full Post-Program Review
- the article The Psychology of Fake News shares the following conclusion.
And if for any reason you can’t make it to Boca for the workshops or one-on-one sessions, we can deliver the entire program virtually, wherever you are.
So start thinking again, carefully. Realize that you once had innate mastery of the power of metabolism, energy, and health. You know you’re capable of it. The Reboot simply removes the interference and restores “what you had all along.”
Dorothy found everything she was looking for right there in Kansas, right back at home.
Santiago found he had all the treasure he ever dreamed of by winding up right back at the start, in his small community in the south of Spain.
You’ll do the same.
ONLY KEEP READING IF YOU’RE STILL ON THE FENCE. 7 INSIGHTS AHEAD.
I’ll conclude by sharing 7 Insights, 7 Truths that should speak to your “thinking brain,” that should help you dismiss all of the previous attempts, all of the flawed approaches, and all of the unintentional missteps and make way for a Metabolic Reboot.
(1) Inflammation is the root cause of all disease.
Inflammation is an innate protective mechanism of the immune system. A bee stings and injects venom, the hypothalamus begins a chemical messaging system that alerts the immune system of danger. Immune cells respond by making cytokines which inflame the area around the sting to isolate it, to prevent pathogens from spreading, and killer cells come kill the invading bacteria after which the inflammation goes away. When we experience disruption, or a cascade of internal events beginning with a stress response, immune signals become compromised and entire bodily systems become inflamed. When the inflammation is the result of flawed signaling, the residual effect is a chronic condition given a name referenced by the system affected. Irritable Bowel Disease, COPD, Hypertension, and Arthritis are just a few. Cellular inflammation can present as Type 2 Diabetes, Hypothyroidism, cardiovascular disease. Even cancer, renal disease, and hepatic disease have inflammation at the source. Cellular Inflammation is only a step in the progression of chronic disease and that progression may include crossing into weight loss resistance and auto-immune conditions.
THE METABOLIC REBOOT IS SPECTACULAR AT REVERSING INFLAMMATION
(2) Parasympathetic Recovery is the key to Restoration
In the last paragraph I explained how inflammation is prompted by stress. The stress response is a function of the autonomic nervous system. It’s referred to as “a sympathetic nervous system response” (fight or flight). In a sympathetic state the adrenals run hot, elevating levels of adrenaline, epinephrine, and cortisol, and in a true fight or flight situation, these hormones are suppressed by the “Parasympathetic System” once the threat is gone.
In a chronic stress response, there is not true threat, thus there isn’t a single moment where “the threat is gone.” The adrenals continue to run hot, hormonal imbalance follows, and the Parasympathetic System, the part of the autonomic nervous system that allows an organism to return to a resting state, literally goes to sleep. It de-activates. In the absence of a Parasympathetic Response, we fail to return to the vital state of homeostasis, the state of balance where healing and recovery take place. This allows the disease progression and inflammatory degradation to snowball, moving the afflicted farther and farther away from health.
THE METABOLIC REBOOT RESTORES PARASYMPATHETIC RECOVERY IN A MATTER OF DAYS
(3) Synergy, The BIG Triangle, and MIND, SPIRIT, CELL
In 1994 I created a program called The Body You Love, later released as TRANSFORM. The program sold 200,000 copies worldwide and was responsible for tens of thousands of dramatic transformations from athletes to regular people seeking outstanding physiques. The program was built around the concept of “Synergy,” three synergistic components that must be in place if any program is going to result in positive physical change. (1) The Right Nutrition (2) Moderate Aerobic Exercise (3) Resistance Training. “Synergy” as a key to positive physical change remains an immutable and eternal foundational principle. Over the last 30 years, the world changed and human transformation became a bit more complex. The environment changed. Food changed. Habitual behaviors changed. Human Biology changed. Among or as a result of those changes, near 70% of our adult population is living with the diagnosis of a chronic disease. When an individual moves along “The Disease Continuum” metabolism becomes compromised and corrupted. In order to restore metabolic excellence, we have to look further than the simplicity of Synergy. We now have consider six distinctive points from which we can restore balance, metabolism, and ultimately health. I call it the Six Point Secret as it’s the power that underlies renewal and restoration. The six points are usually illustrated by two triangles. The first Triangle is THE BIG Triangle (BIG is an acronym for the 3 "points" that follow. (1) Brain (2) Immune System (3) Gut The second triangle illustrates how the state or condition of mind and spirit dictate cellular health, thus the remaining three points are as follows. (4) Mind (5) Spirit (6) Cell. From that paradigm we can correct maladaptations and fully reverse the trajectory, halting the progression of disease and reawakening the building blocks of excellence.
THE METABOLIC REBOOT IS BUILT UPON 42 SCIENTIFIC PRINCIPLES INCLUDING SYNERGY AND THE 6 POINT SECRET
(4) The Gut Biome
Although science has been aware of microbes that colonize in the digestive tract for well over a century, and studies were performed on animals revealing elements of the gut flora (biome) and the enteric nervous system (neurons in the digestive tract), it wasn’t until shortly after the turn of the century that we learned of the unbreakable links between the microbiome and health. Not only digestive health, but systemic, physical, psychological, and immune health as well. As more studies examine the links between “gut balance” and health, we come to understand how vitally important it is to maintain a balance of microbes (good bacteria vs. “bad” bacteria) to optimize energy, fitness, metabolism and immunity. Recent studies have identified specific pro-biotics as having superior action in lowering blood pressure than even the most common BP medications. When we “fix” the gut biome, mood improves, sleep cycles improve, skin conditions clear up, digestion improves, and energy, optimism, and a sense of holistic health are restored. How do we “destroy” the gut biome? Simple. We combine overuse of antibiotic drugs with The Standard American Diet with lots of sugar (which feeds the opportunistic pathogenic bacteria). How do we fix it? We reduce sugar intake. We eat natural organic foods, consume fermented such as kefir, grass-fed yogurt, sauerkraut, and an occasional serving of kimchee. And then we supplement with pre and probiotics. It sounds complicated, unusual, and overwhelming to most Americans, until they find a simple nutrition plan that seamlessly integrates a focus on improvement of the microbiome.
THE METABOLIC REBOOT SEAMLESSLY INTEGRATES IMPROVEMENT OF THE GUT BIOME AND THE GUT-BRAIN LINK
(5) Nothing Works
For decades I was asked to serve as a consumer advocate, to write, appear, and speak to help consumers find truth in labeling, in product efficacy, and in purported health, fitness, and weight loss solutions. Whether the product being reviewed was “weight loss earrings” (for real), the Atkins Diet, or an exercise device (i.e. the Shake Weight), the question concluded with “Does it work?” The answer is always no. Nothing works. To expand on that, noting works in isolation. Nothing works in and of itself. Returning to the concept of Synergy, no diet program will work without a concern for exercise and resistance training. No walking program will “work” without a focus on metabolic eating. No supplement will work, no device will work, no powder, capsule, or supplement will “work” without a multi-faceted approach toward betterment. Weight loss scams are common, as it’s relatively simple to prompt a reduction of pounds on the scale, but the common tricks involve a diuretic effect (temporary and unhealthy loss of water weight), a stimulant effect (appetite reduction through adrenal stimulation which increases “the stress response”), or a deprivation based loss of muscle and bone density resulting in metabolic slowdown and residual weight gain. The key is revealed in a thorough compilation of the science, a concurrent focus on Synergy and the 6 Points I shared earlier.
THE METABOLIC REBOOT INTEGRATES “ALL THE PIECES” IN A SIMPLE SCIENCE-BASED FAIL-PROOF PROGRAM.
(6) Medication are NEVER curative when it comes to Chronic Disease
As chronic disease runs rampant, the conventions of medicine steer you to treatment protocols reliant upon medications. There are over 6400 medications in circulation available through your local pharmacy with a doc’s prescription. Some will mask symptoms. Others will mitigate pain for awhile. Some will reduce muscular contraction in skeletal muscle or in arteries. Some will reduce auto-immune activity by limiting function of the immune system. And the new breed of weight loss drugs will interrupt appetite and digestion reducing blood sugar in the short term with ever-increasing risk of severe side effects. Not a single one of them will reverse a chronic disease. Not one.
THE METABOLIC REBOOT HAS AN EXTRAORDINARY TRACK RECORD IN REVERSING CHRONIC DISEASE
(7) We can Regenerate
When you were a kid you fell of your bike, skinned your knee, maybe shed a tear or two, and then something miraculous happened. The wound healed. It bled. It swelled. It scabbed. It healed. That’s one of the most incredible phenomena of human biology. Skin grows back! So too does liver tissue. A broken bone, set correctly, can repair by rebuilding, literally regenerating tissue. Perhaps we’re not as regenerative as a sea star, which can grow back a limb, or a newt which can grow back a tail or a leg, but still, we have to marvel at our ability to regenerate. When you come to understand HOW we regenerate, how our bodies create, multiply, and morph “stem cells” into tissue, be it muscle tissue, connective tissue, brain tissue, or bone, you find yourself in greater awe of the human machine when its filled with divine power and life force. With the right internal and external environment, we can generate or regenerate muscle, oxidative fiber, cells membranes, mitochondria, and systemic ability. In fact, with a solid road map, we can recreate, recompose, and remodel our entire bodies. Now comes the paradox. It appears that when we’re young (falling off a bike and skinning your knee) we regenerate easily, but as we age we come to expect nagging connective tissue degeneration, muscle ache, and slow-to-heal wounds and injuries. Here’s the fact. That is NOT a result of chronological age. It is more a result of oxidation, of entropy, of a reduction in “biological age,” and when we learn to optimize the internal and external environment for tissue and systemic regeneration, well, we start to become Young Again!
I’ll take it a step further. If you do the Metabolic Reboot at my facility, Infinite Impact, in Boca Raton, we’ll incorporate red light therapy, hyperbaric oxygen, and PEMF, all technological strategies proven to increase the proliferation of stem cells.
THE METABOLIC REBOOT REDUCES OXIDATION AND REDUCES BIOLOGICAL AGE
