Ayahuasca Myths & Truths, Shamanic Battles, Union With God, The Future Of Plant Medicines & More

I first became aware of this episode's podcast guest, Hamilton Souther, when I heard him interviewed by Aubrey Marcus in a fascinating discussion about "sorcery vs. medicine." As the guide and founder at Blue Morpho, Hamilton is no ordinary "shaman."

Regenerating Your Thymus Gland, BPC-157, The Liver King Controversy & More

From steroids to even everyday legal compounds, these unrecognizable elements may lead to severe autoimmune disease, gut problems, and cancer. Certain supplements and chemicals can also make you age faster because they interfere with your natural biological processes,...
