Episode 59: Dr. Jack Kruse on Optimal Health


Dr. Jack Kruse is a well-respected neurosurgeon who’s on a mission to help people find radiant, life-long health. He’s been published in dental and medical journals, authored the transformative book Epi-Paleo Rx: The Prescription for Disease Reversal and Optimal Health, co-invented the Quantlet light therapy wristband, and helped countless people through his blog and practice. His research proves that our modern indoor lifestyle negatively impacts your health and teaches how bathing in natural light from the sun, moon and stars can have a mind-blowing effect on your vitality. Now as the CEO of Optimized Life, Dr. Kruse works to help humanity reconnect to the environment, increase their longevity and beat healthcare burdens that arise as we age.

Disclaimer: I don’t understand the nature of viruses to comment on the health implications of Covid19 or how the governments are best to respond to disasters. In addition to the suffering, the most challenging aspect is the possible catastrophic effect on the global economy. I intend to explore these issues with compassion and curiosity and to shine some light on the circumstances surrounding this pandemic and the media’s reaction to it. 

I am certain that you can improve upon the ideas presented here with your own perspective, knowledge and experience – if you have the emotional and psychological bandwidth. If not, I understand that perspective too.

I try to be mindful that the “counter-narrative” is not always more virtuous or magnanimous than those of conventional institutions. And they are not always more righteous just by virtue of being opposite. In other words, I don’t take alternative media to be the gospel. At the same time, we can’t immediately censor an opposing viewpoint just because it’s different…unless we want to have the same type of censorship that China is experiencing. 

I’m hoping that this time gives us the proper reframe so that we can have a more broad perspective in terms of what’s possible for society. 

Note: If you’re easily offended or are not open-minded to alternative perspectives, please listen to another episode. 

In this episode we discuss: 

  • Why we become blue light toxic the more time we spend inside…even if we’re behind glass
  • Black Swan theory and why thinking like a Black Swan is so rare 
  • Why media censorship is happening

We also discuss: 

  • Why the dominant belief about UV light causing melanoma and skin cancers is wrong 
  • Why Vitamin D is important to our immunity and defense
  • Why both Steve Jobs of Apple and Bill Gates of Microsoft have the same history of limiting the screentime of their children.
  • Why the light at sunrise is the most important time of day.
  • “the line in the sand” question: Is there a link with 5G?
  • A book reading list for how you can become a “Black Swan” (full list in Show Notes)
