Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, Methylene Blue, Gaba And Mitochondrial Health With Dr Scott Sherr

In this weeks episode of "Pushing the Limits" I interview one of my idols in the world of health optimisation medicine, hyperbaric oxygen therapy and cellular health Dr Scott Sherr, a repeat guest to the show.

In this episode we go deep into the benefits of:

  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, what it does, the pathways it affects from:

  • Stem cell production to inflammation downregulation to lymphatic support to angiogenesis

  • We discuss the health issues this powerful therapy can benefit 

  • We discuss protocols, the different types of chambers and pressures and how to build a foundational health protocol around the person's treatment. 

We also do a deep dive into one of my favorite research subjects at the moment - Methylene Blue and it's myriad of effects in the body and how it may help support: 

  • energy production by bypassing the first two complexes in the electron transport chain in the mitochondria

  • what ailments it may help with from alzheimer's and cognitive declines to TBI to UTI's to depression to athletic performance to carbon monoxide poisoning, mitochondrial dysfunction to malaria and it's use as the world's first antibiotic and more  

  • We dive into it's long history and where the current science stands on this exciting compound. 

  • We look at how it has a biphasic response curve and how it works as both an antioxidant and pro oxidant and why pharmaceutical grade is crucial.

Then we dive into the GABA system and how it affects recovery and sleep and formulations that support this system besides taking actual GABA that alone doesn't cross into the blood brain barrier. 

We also discuss Dr Scott's and Dr Ted Achacoso's non profit educational arm https://homehope.org/ where doctors and practitioners can advance their learning in the holobiont. They provide the framework for doctors and health care practitioners to learn how to optimize their clients' health, rather than treat disease.
Health Optimization Medicine (HOMe) was founded in the Philippines by Dr. Theodore Achacoso after realizing that illness medicine, in which he is trained and excels as an interventional neuroradiologist and pharmacologist, was reactive, interventional, and could benefit from an entirely different approach: one that optimized health rather than treated disease.

Over several years, he became an expert in the intricacies and power of metabolomic, gut, and hormone optimization, along with the additional pillars of what became HOMe.

My favourite podcast ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

Helps me get through my boring desk job. Absolutely love this podcast. Great topics and advice that has helped me to better myself and my approach to running.


Two thumbs up ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

Always great guests, great insights and learnings that can be applied immediately for every level of experience.


Motivational and Inspirational ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

I am getting my mojo back with regards to my health and running after treatment for breast cancer, I connected with Lisa as I was looking for positive influences from people who are long distance runners and understand our mindset. Lisa’s podcasts have been a key factor in getting me out of a negative space where I allowed others limiting beliefs to stop me from following my heart and what I believe is right for me. After 18 months of being in cancer recovery mode I wanted to get out of the cancer mindset and back to achieving goals that had been put aside. Listening to Pushing The Limits has put me onto other great podcasts, and in the process I have learnt so much and am on a pathway to a much better place with my mindset and health. Thanks so much Lisa for doing what you do and always being you.
