Dr. Matthew Cook, of Bioreset Medical, is not only my partner in crime in the country music band “Rocky Roots,” but is also a deep, deep well of knowledge on all things regenerative medicine (and is now even doing telemedicine “Ketamine Resets” – use code BENDEAL for a $250 discount). Whether you need to fix Lyme, mold, or mycotoxin issues, completely repair a knee or back issue without surgery, learn how to treat SIBO naturally, or get the most advanced anti-aging and longevity treatments that currently exist, he's your man.

Dr. Cook founded BioReset Medical Corporation and, as acting president, operates a regenerative and pain medicine practice that offers leading-edge non-surgical solutions in orthopedic medicine, sports medicine, regenerative pain medicine, and stem cell medicine.

He is a board-certified anesthesiologist with over 20 years of experience in medical practice. Currently, Dr. Cook is president of California Anesthesia and medical director of the National Surgery Center, Los Gatos, CA.

Dr. Cook’s early career as an anesthesiologist and medical director of an outpatient surgery center that specializes in sports medicine and orthopedic procedures provided invaluable training in the skills that are needed to become a leader in the emerging fields of musculoskeletal ultrasound imaging, nerve hydrodissection, and stem cell medicine.

I previously interviewed Dr. Cook in the following episodes:

During this discussion, you'll discover:

-Ben and Dr. Matt Cook review the morning's activities before the recording session…4:45

-The epic morning smoothie Ben and Dr. Cook enjoyed before recording the podcast…6:54

-Dr. Cook's approach to treating a health icon's health issues…15:08

  • Ben confides he's had gut issues for the better part of two years
  • This is one of the most common issues men have according to Dr. Cook
  • Problems begin in the intestines, which is where the immune system is
  • Immune system dysfunction creates stress throughout the body and affecting other organ systems
  • EKO University Stool Test
  • Ben's stool test results:
    • Four parasites
    • Burrow into the wall of small intestine, create a biofilm around them
  • Great Plains mold urine test
  • Dr. Andrew Campbell MyMycoLab blood test
  • Ben had high levels of antibodies
  • Low bifidobacterium
  • Candida
  • High levels of GI inflammation
  • Dr. Cook believes the parasites are a result of traveling, competing, etc. then got exposed to a bit of mold along the way
  • This created stress for the immune system that was difficult to overcome

-How to treat SIBO naturally…24:47

  • Food goes into small intestine (tiny in diameter, but very long)
  • Small intestine is supposed to be sterile
  • Bacteria and yeast end up in the small intestine
  • These ferment and multiply when in contact with sugars
  • Creates gas and bloating
  • Gas distends the wall, creates leaky gut
  • Ben was able to do what he does with this condition because of his diet, lifestyle, biohacks, etc.
  • Go on a low FODMAP diet

-Dr. Cook's parasite reset protocol…35:03

-The GI reset and cellular detox protocols…52:12

  • Toxic at the cellular level, not just at the gut
  • Same glutathione, but using a zeolite (shuttles mycotoxins and metals out of the cell)
  • Pushed into the gut, then give a binder to bind to all the mold toxins
  • Immune system stops making antibodies to mycotoxins
  • Different binders:
    • Bamboo
    • Cholestyramine

-Energy reset protocol…56:33

-Mineral and sleep reset…1:03:52

-How to go about getting these protocols done…1:06:40

  • “Start low and go slow”
  • Most supplements you can get yourself
  • If supplements don't work, seek out a doctor knowledgeable with these protocols
  • NAD and sleep drive immune system's ability to work

-How Dr. Cook is helping men with ED and sexual dysfunction…1:10:56

  • Viagra, BiMix and Trimix are common treatments for ED and SD
  • Penile implants are a last resort; problems with infections and disease are common
  • Matt tried shock wave and P-shot therapy along with ultrasound
  • Hydrodissection in the penis; surround nerves with peptides (BPC-157 and Thymosin beta 4)
  • PT 141 peptide
  • Addressing the nerves is as important as everything else

-Ozone dialysis…1:20:20

  • Most common ozone treatment is to withdraw blood, add ozone, reinsert the blood into the body (1 pass ozone)
  • Take blood out, run through a dialysis filter; mix ozone in
  • Ozone forms lipid peroxides; drive oxidation-reduction reactions (as does NAD)
  • Ozone can convert NADH back into NAD
  • Dr. Cook is the worldwide trainer in ozone dialysis
  • Traditional plasma exchange: Pull plasma off, replace with albumin
  • Incredibly anti-infectious
  • Ozone dialysis lasts 5-6x longer than a weekly one pass treatment

-What Dr. Cook is doing about PTSD and trauma…1:30:54

  • Ketamine (via Dr. Matt Cook's Ketamine Resets – use code BENDEAL for a $250 discount)
  • Vagus nerve hydrodissection
  • Understand how the fight/flight vs. rest/relax responses are related to the limbic system

-How you can listen to the hottest new country band in the land for free…1:39:16

  1. John Newton says:

    I didn’t see the pdf version of the GI reset mentioned on the Podcast?

  2. Maryam Daftarian says:

    I have a question about this protocol, which items need to be taken on an empty stomach ?

    How are these timed throughout the day between meals

  3. Sara says:

    Did you take antibiotics for SIBO? Your post says that SIBO can be healed naturally, I am wondering if that included antibiotics? I would think not but antibiotics were mentioned in your podcast so I am confused. If so, what antibiotics did you take for SIBO?

  4. Karen Berchem says:

    Great Podcast lots of great info! I get SIBO symptoms now and then, gas like heartburn pain that shoots up to my neck (Vagus nerve). Whats worked best for me is an enema to relieve the immediate pain. But to help reverse I have used similar strategies in the podcast – But most helpful has been BIOMAGNETISM, where you can place biomagnetic pairs to target specific pathogens (giargia, bacteria, Chlostridium as for me Dairy seems to be a trigger). Mold is a big big deal and I do a treatment on myself 6 months. I use Theraben for Mold. You take it every 90 minutes 9 times throughout the day for about 2 weeks. The rational behind this protocol is that mold gives off mycotoxins immediately when threatened, but mold only has about 7 doses per day in storage. These mycotoxins distract your immune systems so it never actually gets to treat the mold as its busy bdealing with allergy symptoms and other symptoms from the mycotoxins. On the 8th dose there is nothing left in the tank so your immune system can now start going after the mold. The last two doses you take some oregano oil as this weakens the mold. I also do a dose of Liposomal Glutathione (Quicksilver) before each dose to help with the detox. MOLD is a huge huge issue and the foundation of many weaknesses as it suppresses the immune system. I have a son with ASD issues and this protocol is a game changer for us. — Go very slow at first esp if you have a strong illness, take time to build up the protocol and stop at any sign of a herx (herx means your system is not coping and is stressed, a stressed system in Fight/Flight mode and cant heal (IMO)), Take a break to let your system recover equivalent to twice the length of the time you did the protocol (ie 5 days on then 10 days off). Another tool we use is the Ionic Footbath to help clear the toxins faster, and also biomagnetic pairs to help the liver, kidneys and bladder to detox better.

    How do we order the EKO University stool test?

  6. Johanna Sulzenbacher says:

    Hi Ben. I have a question re. product links you provided. I have tested positive for SIBO and parasite (blastocystis hominis and have decided to do Dr.Cook’s protecol vs antibiotics my GP is recommending. My issue is that I am located in Canada and am having an extremely difficult time trying to locate all the products listed in Dr. Cook’s pdf. I noticed the products you listed are somewhat different to what’s suggested in the pdf, and seem to be more easily aquired. Do you think I will attain the same degree of efficacy if I were to use the products you suggested and dose as per Dr. Cook’s pdf? And thank you so much for this podcast and all the others. Your info and interviews have helped me so much over the years. You rock!

    1. The products I listed are simply products mentioned during the show, not necessarily a protocol like Dr. Cook's.

      1. Johanna Sulzenbacher says:

        Thank you!

  7. Alex Lowery says:

    You had mentioned taking GI Synergy away from probiotics, what about taking it with other vitamins and supplements?

  8. Alex Lowery says:

    Ben & Dr. Matt,

    The first hour plus of this show was epic! I am past the stage where Ben is at and my gut issues have effected my body in so many ways via several autoimmune disorders. I have a fun mix of Candida, likely SIBO and parasites. I am going to avoid fermented foods for the next month or 2 and follow Dr. Cook’s Protocol. I have already been implementing some of these strategies, but it is nice to finally see it mapped out. The PDF really helps. Ben, are you familiar with NAD and/or NAD precursors having negative effects on people with the MTHFR mutation?

  9. Chr says:

    Hi Ben,
    Hoping you or Dr Cook may help with a severe caffeine sensitivity. Even the smallest amount of chocolate/green tea/cocoa results in rapid pulse, jitteriness, constant talking, followed by 2 days of ‘down, melancholy, hopelessness’
    How can I decrease this response?
    Appreciate you

  10. Andrew says:

    Ben, I see a lot of things you listed are kind of foreign, meaning they are not the kind of food you or your mom were eating when you were little. I suspect this may have something to do with the bloating problem. When we make food choices, digestability needs to be taken into consideration, not just perceived nutritional content. Just a thought.

  11. LP says:

    What are the antibiotics that Dr.cook would have one take in addition to his protocol in the treatment of intestinal amebiasis ?

  12. Ian says:

    Another great podcast with Dr Cook—I always look forward to them. I just checked the pricing for the KetamineReset program that he offers which is $5,500! I understand he is a top-notch doctor trying innovative approaches and running a practice but come on. How do people afford this stuff and does it really need to cost this much? I assume most of the services aren’t covered by insurance so it literally bankrupts people to try them. I would love to see functional medicine practitioners charge more reasonable rates for their services instead of trying to capitalize on sick people. I’m also a business owner and understand they are running a business at the end of the day, but these kind of rates are exorbitant.

  13. Joseph says:

    Hey Ben,

    Any updates regarding the PDF?

    Thanks for your help!


    1. colin willis says:

      could not get the link to work would you mind posting again.

      Many thanks

  14. Dave says:

    Hey Ben, best podcast really interesting. Can’t wait for the PDF to be posted!!

  15. gino says:

    Hi Ben. Love the show. Is there any way you can test and recommend items that are not so expensive,for example the joovv, kaatsu bands and the powerdot?

  16. sharon tovey says:

    As you can see here, there’s many of us who have been waiting patiently for the promised PDF but it still hasn’t been delivered! We appreciate the content Ben supplies to us listeners but if for some reason this is not going to be forthcoming, I feel the right thing to do is just to let us know – I hope you agree!!

    many thanks…

  17. KE says:

    Hello! I’m wondering when the PDF will be shared? Do you have a timeline on that? Thanks so much! Looking forward to reading more about this!

  18. Andrew says:

    Lot of us desperate for the PDF. The bloat is real.

  19. Chenoa Siciliano says:

    Ditto on the PDF

  20. Jeanenne says:

    I really enjoyed your Rocky Roots premier. A wonderfully produced and respectful rendition of some country classics. Well done and bravo!

  21. Mark Rayonec says:

    Mark R
    Great podcast again would love to see Dr Cook. Is there any doctors he’s trained in Chicago or Indianapolis?

  22. Maru says:

    Looking for the PDF as well… Can you please reveal the name of the clean mold binder that’s better CSM?

    Thank you!!

  23. Jacek says:

    The podcast was very good as usual but I’m surprised no one is commenting on the Rocky Roots tracks!

    By Gosh! Ben, you can sing man!

    Before I listened to this, I thought I hated country music. But I absolutely love these tracks! Keep’em coming Ben!

  24. Nikita M says:

    Howdy Ben, the NAD Fuel and Cell Reset compounds Dr. Cook talks about – are these supplement formulations available to purchase? If so, can you please link to them?

    Based on the ingredients he mentions, it sounds like one could piece together such a protocol independently, but I’m curious to look at the complete formulation.

    Cheers on sharing your story of gut struggles! I’ve been dealing with almost the same problems myself for many years and it is very helpful to hear your protocols and scientific details for restoring balance.

  25. Matt says:

    Is the PDF there?

    1. Shayme says:

      Not here yet … Also waiting!

  26. Mike says:

    Dr Cook says sometimes he uses antiparasitic drugs in addition to his parasite protocol. are there any specific drugs Dr Cook recommends? thanks

  27. Ryan says:

    Ben – Any great Dr’s like Matt in NYC?

    1. Look up Dr. Halland Chen. He's been on my podcast before.

  28. Rs says:

    So this podcast had a lot of interesting topics, but I feel I didn’t get all the answers I was looking for.

    I think I have some kind of gut problem. I react with bloating to onions, garlic, sugar and in some cases to glutens.

    My morning rutine is Bens super smoothie with, avocado, olive oil, nuts, vegan protein, cacao powder, spinage, broccoli, collagen, some multi greens powder. When I take this, it takes not more than 30 minutes to one hour before I have to run for the toilet. Almost seem that this smoothie rush through my system. I do want to continue with this smoothie becouse of all the nutrients I get from it. But do you have ane tips for what I should to to this problem?

    I go to the toilet at least 3/4 times ish per day, wich is way to much?

    On my daily supplement list I take colustrum and prebotics on an empty stomache in the morning. And glutathione just before breakfast.

    Also interested in some more info in your treatments for getting a more solid hard-on. Related to ED-section

    1. Pete says:

      Sounds like you have some form of overgrowth. If it’s prebiotic as opposed to probiotics your taking then they’ll just be feeding whatever bad overgrowth of bacteria you have. The prebiotic comes in when you’ve killed off the bad and want to encourage the growth of the beneficial bacteria.
      I’ve also had problems with smoothies literally passing straight through me, would be interested to find out why/how this happens? I do know that when this is happening it’s pretty pointless having the smoothie as barely any of the nutrients would be getting absorbed.

  29. Jorinde says:


    Really keen to start a parasite cleanse in the next two weeks. One thing I’m curious about is the timing aspect.

    First you draw out the parasite on an empty stomach. Do you then bust the biofilm right away with Lauricidin, and kill the parasites immediately after that? Or is there a specific longer time to leave in between?

    I’d imagine that if you draw them out of hiding, that you’d have to be relatively quick before they go back into the castle.

    1. Johanna Sulzenbacher says:

      Check out the pdf that Dr. Cook provided. Gives dosing times. He also mentions “ churning the water” at first to draw them out. My take is to start treatment for the first bit with somewhat regular eating habits (I’m doing a few of weeks of 60ish % fodmaps and specific carbohydrate since I have a parasite and SIBO), then finishing rest of treatment on 100% fodmap and SCD.

  30. Paula A Thornton says:

    Where’s the farm-to-table restaurant in Spokane? When will you be doing anything local (bring those travel dollars here!)?

  31. Marilyn Hartman says:

    Yes my hubby could use this. He’s 53 works out does Brazilian Jiu jitsu and runs and he’s always bloated and gasy. He also has health issues Hashimoto’s thyroid, fybromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis and back, knee and ankle issues from his military time. I worry about him sometimes this is the man who ran in tough judders and did a goruck challenge ( like navy seal training for 24hrs straight.) and did 5k’s. how can I help him where can I start? I can’t afford all this at once but where can I start with him? I’ll save money and pay for something and save a little more little at a time but I need to do something. I don’t like seeing him feel worse and all the doctors we have seen and going to the mayo clinic they just want to keep giving him pills and that’s the last thing we want. He has a cabinet full of pills he doesn’t take. he’s on 2 right now Armor for thyroid and a high blood pressure pill. he is the person that gets side effects to a lot of these pills. PLEASE HELP!!!!!

    Ben you should consider easing off your PEMF therapy for several months, I would stop it completely will rebuilding your system. I have 2 XL PROs and have seen gastro disruption and anxiety symptoms in patients over the last 3 years (including myself). There is a correlation and you need to explore what I am saying. Detoxification pathways and the vagus nerve can get injured with high-intensity PEMF and I know you do a lot of this. I have lots of case studies that show a strong relationship. It is STILL a useful treatment BUT there are side effects.

  33. Rose says:

    Where in Montana is Dr. Cook from? Are there any doctors in Montana doing this type of functional medicine?

    1. thomas shepard says:

      Dr Cook’s practice is Campbell CA

  34. X says:

    Which Zeolite product does Dr. Cook recommend? I’ve heard most of them are too large a micron size to do much, or at least not small enough to get through the blood\brain barrier.

    1. des says:

      Im not an expert but Ben did have Dr Pompa on one of his podcast who makes a zeolite formula that gets through the barrier. Cyto Detox is the name of his product. Check it out if you want. Hope that helps.

  35. Johanna Sulzenbacher says:

    Thank you so much for this episode. I have SIBO and recently suspected I have a parasite as well. Ordering the supplements recommend. Fingers crossed!

    Also, I tried to use your code for the vibration roller and it did not work.

    1. CJ says:

      Too bad dr cook is a complete scam artist and an asshole who uses a fake ozone machine that doesn’t actually put out any ozone. Shame on you ben for partnering with a monster, he defrauded my brother out of 20K in 10 pass treatments that did nothing and was a total jerk to not only my brother but his own staff as well! Cook knows nothing about gut health, the only good that came out of my brother’s entire experience was working with bioReset’s functional medicine guy Tyler McRae who really helped his GI issues.

      1. Nic says:

        Fake ozone? Your comment is silly. If you listen to the podcast you’d know that Dr. Cook knows far more about gut health than 99% of doctors.

        1. CJ says:

          If YOU knew anything about ozone you would know that the most reliable and industry standard machines are the Zotzmann. Cook does not use those, he uses a lime green computerized machine that doesn’t require as much training for the staff. His turnover is so high (because he treats his staff like garbage, as I personally witnessed) he would never be able to keep training a new nurse on a Zotzmann as it is more complex. Problem with the computerized or automated model is “the fox is watching the chicken coup” and there is no objective regulator. When these machines have been tested by third party they have been found to put out anywhere from 1/4 to 1/6 the amount of ozone compared to what should be generated. Go ahead and spend your 20K on this mentally unstable (overheard him go ballistic on a nurse in the hallway with other patients and staff in earshot) and let me know if you still think he is so great. He has complaints against him with the AMA and I am in the process of helping my brother file another one against him.

  36. lianne german says:

    I am just wondering where to purchase an affordable ozone machine in the United Kingdom.

    1. Karen Berchem says:

      I bought mine at simply 03, works well and I obtain oxygen from a nearby builder shop, after researching well on the internet, its close enough to medical grade, see Dr Rowen interviews

  37. Risto says:

    What was the sleep remedy coctail or supplement you guys used?

    High grade Melatonin + high grade cbd +

    Didn’t find the link on the show notes?

    Thanks a lot!

  38. Ajay says:

    Thank you ben for this episode. I have gut issues for over 2 years and I am hoping to reset my gut through the ideas Dr Cook mentioned.
    Interestingly I am in San Jose as well. I will be reaching out to him in future as well.

  39. Rob says:

    It just dawned on me listening to this blood ozone therapy thing, and recalling UV blood irridiation you once experimented with, there’s actually some truth/validity to “injecting UV & disinfectant”… lol

  40. Shayme says:

    Hi Been, thank you once again for another great episode!
    But since you’ve recorded this a while back, please let us know about your progress so far.

    We’re all excited to know

  41. Art Kiwacz says:

    How did this protocol work for you Ben? Have you retested and seen any progress? Any side effects you can report on and have you found the source of your mold exposure yet? I know that part is extremely hard, I had top mold guys in the country in my house (Larry Schwartz and Michael Schrantz) who told me my house is OK even though ERMI and HERTSMI tests were elevated. I started looking myself and found 3 areas in my house that had mold, using a Flir camera, opening some drywall spots and multiple testing. Worst thing is you can’t see it or smell it. I’m signed up with Dr Cook and Wild Health guys thanks to you and hopefully they can help me get back to normal. Thank you for all this valuable info and a the goodie box we got today, daughter got excited about that birthday cake cereal.

    1. Nick says:

      Mold is pretty nasty. It seems extremely hard to completely eradicate. Have you tried the NAC, enzymes, etc biofilm inhibiting stack?

  42. Matt says:

    Also looking for the PDF…

    1. Alexandra Baruth says:


    2. Caroline Hendricks says:
