Evolution is all about improving as a species to ensure our survival, but we have created a fragile human system that is now hindering our evolution. How are EDCs playing a role in what’s going wrong? What are some of problems the sick care model has created? What health and environmental factors need to be tracked to really help someone be healthy in this highly toxic environment? On this episode, Apeiron Center co-founder and chief medical officer, Dr. Daniel Stickler gives insight on his experience, and the factors threatening our health and survival.

Every species has either died down or evolved, but we’ve stopped our evolution with all the things we’ve created. -Dr. Daniel Stickler

Three Takeaways

  • A good way to screen is to find out if someone cares about being optimized and not playing the victim is them paying for their health out of pocket (gym, supplements, doctors).
  • Sick care doctors are just trying to mitigate their own risk so it’s not about helping patients, it’s about protecting themselves.
  • Epigenetics and EDCs: We have correlation but we don’t have causation, a critical piece of evidence the government needs to take action.

At the start of the show, Dr. Daniel shared his background and how he got started. He shared why from his own experience, gastric bypass surgery isn’t successful in the long-term. Next, we talked about the asymmetric risk of going to a sick care doctor, and how we have negatively affected our own genetics. We also discussed how to know if someone really cares about getting optimized.

We also discussed;

  • What it will take to cause action to be taken on EDCs
  • How to get access to peptides you can trust
  • The victim mentality and why it’s so hard to help people nowadays

We are the architects and orchestrators of the fragile human system we find ourselves living in today. From EDCs to nutrition and blue lights, there are so many factors that are attacking us from all directions. To solve this, it’s not just about looking at the basics, we’re at a phase where tracking basics just isn’t enough. You have to look at everything that goes into that human system. You have to track the environmental pieces in relationship to everything else. That means looking at things like sleep, stress, supplementation, environment, and cognitive processing too.
