In this week's episode of "Pushing the Limits I had the privilege of interview world renown cancer researcher Professor Thomas Seyfried the author of over 150 peer reviewed publications and the author of the book "Cancer as a Metabolic Disease".
For 30 years Professor Seyfried has been in the trenches as a geneticist and biochemist studying cancer cells and working out the intricacies of how to stop them proliferating. He says there are two primary fuels that cancer cells use in their abhorrent metabolism, Glucose and Glutamine and that if we can cut the fuel supply of these two things to the cancer cells we have a powerful non toxic way of killing cancer cells. He and colleagues designed the Press-pulse: a novel therapeutic strategy for the metabolic management of cancer and in this interview we dive into his latest research and what you can do if you have cancer or want to lower your chances of getting cancer.

Hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT) is the use of high pressure and near pure oxygen to help treat a variety of health conditions and diseases..
Each cell in the body needs oxygen to preserve, repair and enhance cellular function. Breathing high flow oxygen at pressures greater than sea level helps flood the body with oxygen, leading to a cascade of positive benefits from inflammation reduction to an increase in stem cell release to the creation of new capillaries and vessels. This has long term benefits for many ailments and for athletic performance and anti-aging.
