Concussion is the biggest name in today's high-impact sports.
And even if you haven't had a concussion, many people – due to brain inflammation, blood-brain barrier leakage, neurotransmitter imbalances and beyond – suffer from many of the same problematic brain issues caused by a concussion, such as brain fog, distraction, and ADHD-like symptoms (you can check out my own story about that, and how I fixed it, in this article I published after my brain scan at the Peak Brain Institute).
As more and more high profile athletes come forward to share their stories of invisible suffering after head injuries, we as a culture are finally acknowledging this silent epidemic.
Enter The Concussion Repair Manual: A Practical Guide to Recovering from Traumatic Brain Injuries, written by today's podcast guest, Dr. Dan Engle, as a user’s guide for those suffering after head traumas and those that support them. It is a one-part “textbook,” packed with the leading research on medical technologies for healing the injured brain, and one-part “workbook,” offering a step-by-step method for making and tracking a personalized recovery regimen.
Dr. Dan Engle's background and passion for concussion repair stem from a three-decade investigation into the many modalities for healing his own traumas. When the usual medical treatments didn’t help, he explored what was possible, found what worked and put them into this manual – “the best of the best” in the medical arena for recovering from sports related head injury.
Dr. Engle is Board Certified in Psychiatry and Neurology, with a clinical practice that combines aspects of regenerative medicine, orthomolecular psychiatry, integrative spirituality and peak performance methods. He received his medical degree from the University of Texas in San Antonio, his psychiatry residency degree from the University of Colorado in Denver and his Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship degree from Oregon Health and Sciences University. Currently, he is Medical Consultant to Onnit Labs in Austin, Texas, the Temple of the Way of Light Ayahuasca Center in Peru, Crossroads Ibogaine Recovery Center in Mexico and the True Rest Float Center in Tempe, Arizona.

The content has been instead grabbing and interesting enough to get all possible nuances to remember.
I do get pleasure from reading the material and the composing manner of this author,
it reminded me about an author that wrote this page https://studyscroll.com.
I suggest you write such kinds of articles every day to provide the viewers
like me all of the necessary info. In my opinion, it is far better to be ready for all of the unexpected scenarios beforehand,
so thanks, it was fairly cool.
Ben, have you ever tried or covered the topic of nebulizing glutathione? İf not, would love your input.
I haven't done that yet but will keep you posted if I do…
I would be interested in hearing that too, Ben. Thanks
Stay tuned by signing up for my newsletter. BenGreenfieldFitness.com/newsletter
Hey Ben. Love your podcast! Did you already give away the stay in Lake Tahoe? Would love to watch the drive up and watch the Spartan race if not :)
Yes, the condo is all filled up, but JUST IN CASE you can email [email protected] with subject line "condo tahoe" and they will pass it on to me…
Wassup Ben! Love the podcast man. Been following a lot of the same genre and love the relationships you’ve made with Mind Pump and Mr. Chek. These discussions and interviews have completely changed my method of training and nutrition. Now I’m generally LCHF and do some IF and extended fasting mixed with some other modalities like yoga, so just being a meathead in the gym only rears its ugly head periodically which is all I need since I’m 35 and the joints and tendons don’t quite recover like they used to!
I’m from the Tricities area and have wanted to come up there and meet you one day, maybe during a conference or expo or something. I’m loving the style of training you do since I have 3 young children, so hanging from trees, working in pull-ups and dips around the house and fetching and sprinting with the dogs have been incorporated into my routine 🤔😆
Keep up the good work and by the way my parents were married at Lake Tahoe! Wink wink! Would love to make a trip and support the Spartan races 😉
I have recently started medical school. I need some advice on how to have peak mental performance through a multi hour exam. I find myself getting mentally fatigued after the first couple of hours. I am a competitive triathlete and have experiment with different approaches to racing and training (fasting, ketosis, carb-cycling, amino acids, etc.). I approach test day like race day. That being said is there anything I can do to produce my best mental performance? Thanks!

In terms of approaching test day like race day. My (unsolicited) recommendation would be a combination of lion’s mane & cordyceps in a 1:1 ratio (1g lion’s mane + 1g cordyceps, for example). Lion’s mane for the mental game & cordyceps for the stamina. I have used this for yoga, extended reading sessions, and for parkour/obstacle races.
Did u talk about coffee enema and glutathione? Dr dan pappa (what is that name?) and did u ever talk about coffee enema in the podcast
Here is my podcast with Dr. Pompa: https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/podcast/what-is-…
Interesting pod cast, thanks
Just a couple of things not quite clear on maybe you can help
“Glutathione nasal spray” link takes to amazon product that is documented as administered orally, is this same product the right one to use nasally?
I might have missed it but cant see anything on how to purchase stuff via the dark web?
Please keep up the great work with these pod casts
Deeper down on that same link that Ben posted is this item (everything between the quotation marks) : ” https://www.amazon.com/GlutaStat-Nasal-Spray/dp/B00T57R2PA/ref=sr_1_13_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1536627059&sr=8-13&keywords=intranasal+glutathione ”
This appears to be designed for nasal use. I have not tried it (at $99 / bottle, pricey). Curious, though, if anyone else does.
Ben your simply the best
