A transcript for this episode is available online in blog form at Transcript: Dan Stickler, MD on COVID-19 Immunity Protocols.
Dan Stickler, MD joins Heather Sandison, ND to explain immunity protocols that are most likely to be effective against coronavirus (COVID-19). This episode includes stress reduction techniques, nutrition info, supplements, and technologies that our team of experts has compiled to enhance the immune system's function. While we don't have all of the answers, we've used a complex systems science approach to provide the best information possible. We discuss:
- Minimizing stress
- Supporting the immune system through lifestyle factors
- Taking social isolation seriously
- How do to social isolation and staying empowered during time at home
- Symptoms of coronavirus
- The issue of foreign hackers spreading misinformation
- Supplements to support the immune system
- Peptides and health technologies
- How to support each other during this pandemic
It's really important to get good sleep, right now, and if you do get the infection, sleep is even more. -Dan Stickler, MD
Dr. Daniel Stickler is Medical Director of Neurohacker Collective, bringing decades of forward thinking medical knowledge in wellness optimization and whole systems science to our team.
Dr.Stickler is a future-focused visionary and a thought leader in human potential. He is the cofounder of the Apeiron Center for Human Potential and the Apeiron Academy. Disheartened by our current “sick care” approach to health, Dr. Stickler created Human Potential Medicine- an integrated, biospherical systems-approach that combines the scientific grounding and expertise of modern medicine with leading-edge genetic/epigenetic science and neuro-psychophysiological modalities to expand human capacity. He also established the Apeiron Academy, which offers advanced education to a tribe of like-minded individuals determined to shift the health & wellness paradigm from the current sick-care model to one of optimized human potential.
Dr. Stickler entered medical school with a vision of helping people create an optimized life and found very quickly that the training focused predominantly on treating disease to postpone our stepwise progression to death. This realization was the catalyst for a several decade journey to create a new way of living. An opportunity to one promote youthful longevity and the potential for limitless life.
His journey began as a general/vascular surgeon specializing in laparoscopic weight loss surgery. Striving for the best possible outcomes, he created a highly successful whole systems approach in collaboration with a skilled team of dietitians, health psychologists, and exercise physiologists. After 10 years and nearly 3,000 operations, he concluded that the surgical approach was not an ideal option for long term health and knew that lifestyle was the key to creating optimized health.
The quest to discover the ideal approach to optimizing human potential took him on a path through functional medicine, alternative care, holistic approaches, naturopathic, and age-management medicine. Each modality fell short of the outcome of a truly optimized human as most were still focused on the disease model and in fact were not much different from the allopathic approach.
Continuing to search, an obsession with genetics and epigenetics was birthed. Following 10,000+ hours of research and several thousand client interactions, he correlates improved clinical outcomes with implementing lifestyle modifications to optimize genetic expressions. Finally, he has found the answer to precision programming for an optimized life: the DNA code, the blueprint design of all of life. This discovery has led to the clear knowing that we truly have the ability to architect our evolution.
Dr. Stickler’s leadership informing Neurohacker Collective’s approach to the science of human optimization, will deliver some of the most well researched and scientifically rigorous products available in the wellness market for years to come.
