So what is the most important signaling pathway in all life forms for longevity and for optimal health? That is the subject of this blog. The short is answer is the redox potential stored in the membranes, organelles and the exclusion zone of water in cells. I will be bold to say that maintenance of intracellular redox homeostasis is the most important thing to get right to get Optimal.Continue Reading
Last month Jack had the pleasure of appearing on Extreme Health Radio. During the podcast interview, Jack talked about the dangers of blue light, electromagnetic field radiation and how to protect yourself from these unnatural frequencies that we’re being bombarded with on a daily basis. In addition to that, they also discussed The Cold Thermogenesis Protocol and The Leptin Prescription, plus much more. Visit the link below to listen to the interview and let us know what you think!

In the end, science is just a progress report of where we are now in our understanding. It is not our final destination, but it is a data point on the road to understanding. Where we are today in science, in understanding how the brain really works, is close to where man was 2,000 years ago in trying to understand how the planets moved in relation to the sun. We are nowhere close to where we should be. So if we are that far away in our understanding, how can we begin to make sense of it all? We can learn a lot from the macrocosm of space if we scale it to biology on this planet.Continue Reading
We are all products of our environment. Our genes are the first draft of what we are created to be, but the experience those genes face (epigenetics) is how the novel of our life is really written. This blog is about how this experience begins to unfold in our species.Continue Reading
Today, we begin to examine levee’s 6, 14, and 26 in the Quilt document for the first time. We begin to show examples of these levee’s by examining how the human brain forms and functions in an infant. This example will act as an analogy to help us understand many other processes as the blog series rolls on.
There are many countervailing influences in life that on the surface confuse our intellect. They create the appearance of paradox, enigma, and myths, and mysteries. I find when we look at the world through the hull of a glass-bottom ship, to look through a kaleidoscope at the galaxies that exist on the edge of our mind, we begin to see the sense that nature makes from the chaos of the world. I like the irony that mysteries often create. Today, we are going to use some “other observations” we have all made to show you how the mysteries of our modern world might be solved asking better questions instead of settling for the answers we have been given.
The Human Infant
It is clear in modern medicine now that we can not have optimal human brain development unless we have a secure nutrient rich food supply for both mother and child. This relationship also needs to be maintained postnatally for several years after birth until neuralation is successful. It does appear in modern neurosurgery research that human brain development is programmed genetically to a certain extent, but is more malleable then we thought because of the new science findings of epigenetics. This is also more apparent in humans than other mammals because our brain is so complex that even small changes in functional regions can lead to massive clinical changes that become apparent as the child develops. Autism and spectrum disorders are a good example of this phenomena.Continue Reading
How important is time really to life?
Imagine there is a bank account that credits your account each morning with $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day. Every evening the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out every cent, of course? Each of us has such a bank. It’s name is time.
Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off as lost, whatever of this you have failed to invest to a good purpose. It carries over no balance. It allows no over draft. Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the remains of the day. If you fail to use the day’s deposits, the loss is yours. There is no drawing against “tomorrow.” You must live in the present on today’s deposits. Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness and success! The clock is running! Make the most of today.
To realize the value of one year, ask a student who failed a grade. To realize the value of one month, ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby. To realize the value of one week, ask the editor of a weekly newspaper. To realize the value of one hour, ask the lovers who are waiting to meet. To realize the value of one minute, ask a person who just missed a train. To realize the value of one second, ask someone who just avoided an accident. To realize the value of one millisecond, ask the person who won a silver medal at the Olympics.Continue Reading
Qualia is defined by some as “an unfamiliar term for something that could not be more familiar to each of us: the ways things seem to us.”
Erwin Schrödinger was a famous quantum physicist, and had this counter-materialist take on what qualia really is:
“The sensation of color cannot be accounted for by the physicist’s objective picture of light-waves. Could the physiologist account for it, if he had fuller knowledge than he has of the processes in the retina and the nervous processes set up by them in the optical nerve bundles and in the brain? I do not think so.”
Schrodinger’s statement is hinting at precisely what is ailing the modern sciences in a big way. Observations and the manner in which we study things are being divorced from one another. It is as if all scientist have been trained to think only with their left brain and just ignore the creative observations of their right brain. The problem with this situation is that is has put 50 years of mankind at serious risk in medicine.Continue Reading
Two years ago I gave you the Hormone 101: Clinical thoughts revealed blog post. That was a small dose of reality at the beginning of this journey. There was some foundational hormone biochemistry there given to you in simple terms. Most people jumped all over the free T3 link to pregnenolone in the post. They thought that “their cure” for hypothyroidism and/or chronic pregnenolone steal syndrome was increasing free T3 or just lowering reverse T3 to raise pregnenolone. So what was not observed?
A trip down memory lane for the hormone cascade
Leptin resistance occurs first in the brain. Then insulin resistance happens soon their after in the liver, gut, and peripheral tissues. This eventually leads to adrenal resistance. This resistance occurs at the PVN in the brain. (Brain Gut 16: Adrenal Fatigue Rx) It does not happen in the adrenal gland. What happens is that the outflow from our sympathetic system in the brainstem overwhelms the parasympathetic nervous system. This increase in overall cortisol initially, is the stress hormone that allows for fight or flight syndrome (life or death). As this condition persists chronically over time, cortisol levels decrease and flatline on adrenal stress index testing.Continue Reading
It has been close toa year that we last did a CPC blog post. (CPC #5 The Leaky Gut/Adrenal Fatigue Case) CPC stands for a clinico-pathologic conference that we often see in medical schools that our used for teaching students and doctors.
Today we are going to talk about a disease that has perplexed medicine for hundreds of years. Pseudotumor cerebri is also known as idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) today. It goes by many names in the literature. I have decided to discuss this disease because it highlights many of the cornerstone principles of how quantum electrodynamic theory affect water chemistry. This change in water chemistry can lead to biologic effects. The biologic effects of water can be seen in modern humans when we look for them and correctly observe what is really going on. So today we see how the macrocosm affects the microcosm of a modern disease.Continue Reading
Life is energy. All life is tied to our sun. The sun powers everything with the photoelectric effect. Today, you are going to see how this quantum effect makes life dance.
To synthesize simple carbohydrates from sunlight requires 30 proteins to work together in a cell membrane. Research into the mechanism of photosynthesis centers on the understanding the structure of the photosynthetic components and the molecular processes that use radiant EMF energy to drive carbohydrate synthesis. The research involves several disciplines, including physics, biophysics, chemistry, structural biology, biochemistry, molecular biology and physiology, and serves as an outstanding example of the success of multidisciplinary research. This process should give us a clue that systems thinking about problems could solve many modern mysteries.
In our universe, and in all life forms, energy’s primordial state is not rest. Energy does not like to sit around like a couch potato. If you do sit around often like this, this is a quantum sign that you are losing energy in the forms of electrons, photons, phonons, and protons to you own environment. Today’s blog is on the quantum biology of energy dynamics. In the universe, as there is in things living energy is always present. The key factor, however, for life is the amount of energy in its therapeutic dose. A body without energy is called a cadaver. A body with a lot of energy is like a trendy party animal. Energy propels our planes, trains and automobiles to move, and it keeps us warm, grows our food, and helps us see the world we live in.Continue Reading
Today, I am getting ready to do a podcast later tonight with Ben Greenfield and I have an idea of where it will head. Today’s blog is a head start for those of you who are interested.
Most humans are innately aware of the existence of fundamental laws of nature. These are the laws that define our material existence of our universe that we physically inhabit and that currently define our conscious existence. But what humans fail to realize is that how these laws, when singled out for dissection seem so contrary to our common sense. This series is slowly reminding you that the rules of life follow the physical laws who are their counterpart, even when your beliefs cause you to think otherwise. When you begin to explore the microcosm of our quantum reality you begin to see how the macrocosm is constructed and why things work in the fashion they do. It shows us at a deeper level, under all the subjectivity and paradox that life seems to hold, we can always find bedrock of objective and concrete rules to be a beacon for us to follow. They key, however, is knowing where to look for them. Scientific objectivity is derived directly from the unwavering and unchanging laws that govern physics. This allows us to feel secure in drawing inferences and conclusions we draw from them to build our world view beliefs upon. Today, we are beginning to realize in healthcare some of our beliefs have allowed us to stray far from the epistemologic foundation of the laws of physics.Continue Reading
There is so much buzz now in modern healthcare and on the internet about Vitamin D but does anyone really know how it is integrated into our physiology? Most people understand that Vitamin D is tied into our bone’s metabolism and our immune system’s function but there is a lot more to this story. Vitamin D and its receptor, along with Vitamin A and its RXR receptor are among the oldest chemicals life has used to exist in evolutionary biology. This alone tells you how important Vitamin D is for function. Vitamin D is directly modulated by photoelectric effect, which is a foundational law of nature and quantum mechanics. The skin and brain are both derived from neuroectoderm in all animals. In EMF 2, we saw how obesity might be related to an inflammatory condition found in the brain due to a lack of electrons and photons. Today, we are going to examine how Vitamin D works in a quantized fashion.
Many physicians have confided in me that just do not believe that Vitamin D levels are that big of a deal for most patients. When they say that to me, I return a smile. It is not that big a deal for the doctor, but it is a huge clue about what is going on with the patient. For me, it is one of the most critical lab ‘thermostat values’ that tell me about the “preload of their semiconductors” in their skin and body. Yes, it is a quantum signal, to me as a physician. If you remember from the video’s made at Paleo Fx 2011 and our Optimal reset challenge, that I said we can do a quick “biohack” using three labs and tell a lot about the person’s current conditions of existence and where they need to go. Those three labs were the HS-CRP, DHEA, and Vitamin D. So far we covered DHEA in detail in the CPC blog of 6/30/2012 and in the back half of EMF 7. We have covered HS CRP in multiple places. Inflammation is the major signal that all biologic processes and respond to. It is what the hormone panel responds to and it dictates the thermostat for mitochondrial efficiency, signaling, and control of the cell cycle. The inflammatory signal also sets the tone for “tight” circadian control via the adenosine signal.Continue Reading
Dr. Kruse has been talking about doing this webinar for a long time, and it’s finally here: The Sex Prescription! Over the course of the last two years, it’s inevitable that as people are considering their health and “what to do” to create Optimal health, the subject of sexual health comes up. We all want to know: Am I normal? Is there anything else I can be doing to create or enjoy a better sexual response? Are the health challenges I’m facing somehow linked to things like low libido? You’d be amazed at how pretty much every disease known to man is affected in some way by your sexuality. The more leptin resistant you are, the less “good” you are in bed. Pain in your legs, restless leg syndrome, acne and zits, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, all of it is affected by your body’s ability to form or experience a healthy sexual response. According to the latest research, human sexual behavior has changed over the last century, and it’s FASCINATING. We’re going to examine this research in light of the protocols on JackKruse.com and other theories on Quantum Biology. We’ll talk about hormones and brain chemistry, and how everything works together to create love, lust, attraction and long-term love. The […]Continue Reading
‘For any quadruped to get up on its hind legs in order to run is an insane thing to do. It’s plain ridiculous.’ – Owen Lovejoy
Today, we are going to talk about the one thing that really separates humans from all other mammals. We began to walk upright before we developed a big brain. It was our first defining evolutionary change from chimp to human. The reasons why our legs grew first is generally credited to our big brain needing a larger birth canal and causing changes in the genitourinary system. There is one big problem with this theory; We grew legs long before we developed a large complex brain. The brain did not drive bipedalism.
Many modern evolutionary biologist take upright walking for granted because they can do it easily so it appears a natural progression of evolutionary progress. Not even Darwin could explain this evolutionary jump. There has never been another change like it in the biologic record.
It might seem a poor topic for some, because many people have found it easy to explain in their own mind; After all, bipedalism did not strike the early evolutionists as a “difficult thing” to explain. When Darwin wrote ‘The Descent of Man’ he did not even bother to list it in his index. Fact check that. It is true. He choose to completely ignored it, because he could not explain it, and just thought going from all fours to two feet was natural for us! The sequence of events seemed clear enough at that time.Continue Reading
We have shared a lot of information in the EMF and Quantum Biology series. Today, we are going to tie some of these concepts together to give you a picture of what the causes of metabolic syndrome might really be. This disease is now a runaway neolithic disease over the last 20 years. The fact that close to 26% of the population is obese and T2D is now no longer just a disease of obese people should begin to get scientist asking better question of the real etiology of this condition. It really has not. They remain prisoners to old beliefs about the disease. What is clear today, when a person has the up to date current perspective of published biology, chemistry, and biology, is that all disciplines are connected deeply. Biology is the science of life, but it becomes one with physics, and the science of matter and its motion. We only seem to become aware of this situation while living our lives and becoming very observant of this synergy. Our living as sentient beings, makes us the real experts on the laws of real nature. Science is based upon observation of nature at its core. Evidence based medicine is far off this target today. This may help you understand why Metabolic Syndrome is a runaway disease today. In 2012, the US government spent 270 billion dollars on treatment for this one condition. 20 years ago it was around a billion dollars. Something has radically changed environmentally and it is not the 9 billion inhabitants genes on this planet that have adapted this quickly. Their epigenetic pressures however have, and this is the source of the medical bill we get. You need to begin to question much of what you believe about neolithic disease today. Today’s blog delves into deep connections of those disciplines to help you understand what confuses your doctors today. Metabolic Syndrome is being treated via a cookbook called evidence based medicine. Much of what we believe about this disease is based upon a house of cards.Continue Reading
Soon the EMF Rx will go live in our March 2013 webinar so in advance of it, I wanted to give the EMF FAQ’s for everyone to review before you listen to the webinar. I expect there to be many questions once the webinar is released. Hopefully this will answer many of the questions you might have as the series moves forward.
These may make a lot more sense once you listen to the EMF Rx in the webinar. They will really sink in after you hear our EMF expert that we are bringing on to the site for an extensive long term look at the different aspects that EMF causes in our modern world, but here is an appetizer of what is coming.Continue Reading
“Everything is energy and that is all there is to it. Match the frequency to the reality you want and you can not help but getting that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.” — Anonymous
Biology has a great history of examining life by cutting, fixing, pinning, clamping, pressing, pulping, homogenizing, extracting and fractionating; all of which gave rise to, and reinforced, a static, atomistic view of the organism. This is a great way to drain water from a cell and miss life’s critical ingredient when you study it. When we study life in this fashion is limits our ability to understand how a living animal functions in a syncytium. We can see coherent functioning in animals just by observation, but we can’t reproduce it when we drain a cell of the thing that makes it coherent in the first place. We see long range order of the action potential in neurons, rapidity and efficiency of energy transduction and transfer in the brain and retina, extreme sensitivity to external cues in vision and touch, and symmetrical coupling of energy transfer along the inner mitochondrial membrane. Another observation we can make is the noiseless transitioning and functioning of entire populations of molecules in cells.Continue Reading
How can the events in space and time which take place within the spacial boundary of a living organism be accounted for by physics and chemistry? —Erwin Schrodinger
How osteoporosis made me understand this complexity
In our modern world physics continues to make in roads into the organic domains of life. It now places emphasis on non linear phenomena removed from equilibrium, based upon quantum coherence and cooperativity, which are the hallmarks of the biologic domain.
It is the enigmas, the mysteries and paradoxes of life, that take hold of the imagination, leading it on the most exquisite dance. The quantum dance of life.
Osteoporosis, for me, was the first and best example to explain to you the basics of human quantum biology. My observations from my clinic were pretty obvious over a 10 year span. It seemed everyone had some level of the disease if we looked for it. No one was normal on their MRI or blood chemistry work ups in my clinic, and I wanted to know, was Wolff’s law null and void for some reason in our modern world?Continue Reading
If you remember my podcast several years back, I told you the disease that got me interested in all this was osteoporosis. This is a disease I treat a lot as a spine surgeon. I discussed Wolff’s law in detail in the EMF 1 blog. When I realized that Wolff’s law was null and void in leptin resistance states in bone, something else radical appeared to me. I knew that Leptin Resistance signaled inflammation, and inflammation could be seen as a positive charge and loss of a negative charge on MRI’s, fMRI, and MEG studies. I also realized that MRI or NMR should show an increased flair signal on T2 weighted MRI images signifying an intracellular water loss coupled with a loss of collagen and of ATP. Collagen makes up the main protein of connective tissues in all mammals, typically 60–70% by weight. The water and collagen constitute a liquid crystalline matrix in which every cell in the body is embedded, making this system the ideal medium for intercommunication in eutherian mammals. Within this matrix we have learned about proton and electron superconduction that not only feed the underlying mechanistic pathways that most biochemistry recite but they also feed a rich “wet chemistry” that is fundamentally based upon special qualities of water. It turns out water has some prodigious quantum flexibility when it is confined in closed spaces that make it do some unique quirky things that no classic chemist would predict. These things are all predicted by quantum electrodynamic field theory. One such quirk is the use of water reverse micelles around proteins that increase enzyme action and kinetics by the order 10 to the 10th power based upon the pioneering work of Frank Mayer and Jim Clegg. Classic physics and chemistry thinks of water in its bulk form only because that is all the classic sciences can explain about it. In quantum coherence, where water acts as a total cohesive unit because it has infinite chemical freedom, water becomes highly structured chemically, from its bulk form to do some amazing things, to become extremely flexible in phase transitions between ice crystals and liquid crystals and gas vapor as it gets confined in small diameter nanotubes in our cells. Water dynamics and actions are quantumly altered as it is confined within nanotubes it develops properties that allow it to collectively work dynamically within reverse micelles and in proton superconducting cables that align along collagen in the cells cytoarchitecture to allow for super fast semiconduction. This has been reproduced by many physics and molecular biology researchers in electron photomicrographs and X-ray diffraction studies. The most amazing property water develops as it is confined in these nanotubes, it becomes a super catalyst that organic chemistry has missed, because it accounts for the energy of activation of biochemical reactions and enzymatic kinetics. It is not ATP that does this, ever!! ATP has another more critical function. It unfolds protein in cells to open water binding sites to form these super conduction cables to create 100% energy efficiency.Continue Reading
Today’s blog is not long on science. Consider it my Valentine’s day present for you. It is long on observations made on humans and animals and EMF’s. Most of the observations have been done by Russians and described in their literature. One human experiment done on US foreign soil will be eye opening to you. What EMF does to cells directly is it causes a massive stress response that simulates leptin resistance, a heart attack or a panic attack.
It can affect plants too. The sensations are present while often the labs are completely normal and your doctor remains stumped as you sit in the ER. As time elapses the labs become trashed because the molecular clock no longer is able to work precisely but by that time you are closer to Michael Jackson’s fate than a reversal of health.
There are many forces at play to keep this information from you. If you were to understand its full power the economy of the world would likely collapse. This is why this info is systematically kept from you.Continue Reading
