  1. Kathleen Neel says

    I’ve lost 55 pounds since March. I started walking except when it was 118 degrees and I couldn’t recover from the heat. I started intermittent fasting, got my hours down to a smaller eating zone and ate lots of salads, veggies, etc. I have perfect sugar now. It was 13.

  2. Jackie Gough says

    Another great interview!

    These are the guys who their wives have to continually nag to take out the garbage. 🤣🤣

    PNHP is the only national physician organization in the United States dedicated exclusively to implementing a single-payer national health program:

  5. Chat Noir says

    Surprise! We Need Medicare for All

    "Fifty-seven percent of Americans say they’ve received a medical bill
    they weren’t expecting. Sometimes their crime was being unconscious in
    an ambulance taking them to the nearest (out-of-network) hospital. Other
    times their mistake was failing to stop their (in-network) provider
    from commissioning an $18,000 urine test from an (out-of-network) lab.
    Surprise medical bills like these are a major contributing factor to
    medical debt, which is the leading cause of bankruptcy in the US."

  6. Jerry Mcmahan says

    Okay…I have a question. If nasal breathing produces nitric oxidize–which is good thing apparently–does using a nasal mask for a sleep Apnea machine conducive for producing more nitric oxide?

  7. Jerry Mcmahan says

    Dr. ZDogg, I love your sense of humor. I'm a visual and auditory learning–I think I am if that's a thing. Your style and the way you articulate is perfect for my style of learning. Every great instructor I've ever experienced all the way through high school and college had qualities that you do. Thank you for your dedication in teaching us that aren't doctors.

  8. Josh says

    I take my vitamin D through cod liver oil. I have had low levels of vitamin D so I take 1 tbsp daily. I'm one of those weirdos that likes the flavor and I don't have any of the negative effects like fishy burps, although my wife makes me brush my teeth before she'll kiss me.

  9. Rachael M.R says

    email apnea? interesting!

  10. Zach Colley says

    My exercise physiologist heart is just loving this! Thank you Z for bringing these topics to light!!

  11. Wendy Van says

    I teach virtually, and our school day das gone from starting at 8 to starting at 10, and I’ve seen a MASSIVE improvement in focus and mood from my high schoolers

  12. Jenny Weyman says

    Anyone can start today to improve health. This is a great interview. Thankyou.

  13. Sharon C says

    Vintage SNL! Hans and Franz! Love it, that’s my language!

  14. Breann Dauenhauer says

    One of the best videos you’ve made because it’s the most applicable to my life and health, also entertaining. Second most helpful was videos on getting into meditation. This video helps me understand concepts of metabolism, type of exercise lifestyle habits that were completely unknown to me. I’m a 5 year ICU nurse in my 20s. Also I’ve never heard this song Watermelon Sugar 🤷‍♀️

  15. Meloncollie Acres says

    Long video. I need to finish later. My husband has drug induced Interstitial lung disease. So many similarities to covid. Ended up in ICU beginning of 2019. Received diagnosis later. He spent 2 months in the hospital. He is now trying to rehabilitate and get off of O2. Set back in April of this year as lung collapsed 3x over 2 months. Six days in two different covid wards based on imagining, but tested negative 7x. Plerodesis to correct collapsed lung. One more ARDS episode. Treated with methylprednisone 50mg in covid ward same as other patients. Popped up like a daisy. He would like his life back. I like the ideas in this video. Question? If medications cause this kind of underlying lung condition in my husband, who else is it effecting? Lung health is so important if we are to tackle these viruses.

  17. dystoniaify says

    Micrographia :* ( and typing triggers ny dystonia. This is stressing me. Every activity taken from me and my final years in my dark apartment, crippled, legally bliund,stiff. In hell.

  18. dystoniaify says

    It's awesome that I became disabled prior to covid, and the gym shutdowns resulted in my losing more function. I live in a tiny dark apartment, can't walk bike,etc. The gym shutdowns have destroyed me. I was left for dead while solo backpacking with a rare ABI that resulted in Parkinson and dystonia. I'm 100% isolated, going blind,and since Portland decided to shutdown since March, I have nothing to live for. I was a outdoor, adventure, athletic woman. I just turned 40 last week, and will be dead before Portland reopens. I missed my dystonia treatment and dystonia, crippling my foot further. I'm barely able to walk! I fought for my health, and as an ex OT, I adapted to each loss until I became legally blind 3 years ago due to post lasik ectasia, and now the shutdowns since March killed me. I have bilateral, complete based ganglia infarction (putsmen).

  19. Sophie Oshaughnessy says

    Yes! Leg strength is sooo key!

  20. Sophie Oshaughnessy says

    Hey bald meat eating doc! (I’m just joshing I saw your reply to nasty comments recently and you cracked me up). But seriously with regards to inflammatory stuff: while I was a meat eater I had gnarly rosacea for years which literally disappeared on a plant based diet. Just speaking to lifestyle change and reducing the inflammatory reflex in general. Not trying to be a preachy vegan (mostly cuz love me some fish)

  21. NorthOn60 says

    This is such a refreshing interview.

  22. kamhart says

    Listened second time! It’s great!!

  23. Makeupbypatricia says

    I love you ZDogg and Dr. Ron! Such a phenomenal podcast. So educational and inspiring. I was actually sad it's over!

  24. alphahotel73 says
  25. Michael Angemeer says

    Awesome. It lit a fire under my ass. Pulled out the rowing machine and did a half an hour. Thank you. Connected a lot of dots for me.

  26. letsif says

    A person can be fit but unhealthy when pushing too hard for too long. Rest and low level movement is part of a good workout routine. Anaerobic exercise over long duration, create free radicals which corrode arteries. Now isn't that refreshing? Hardcore workouts are unnecessary for longterm health and fitness.

  27. Daci Sky says

    Excellence discussion…Yep,he needs to come back.

  28. Nicholas Jordan says

    At 2:00 Dr Zoggie I had mild or "very mild" "course" in addition to being nearly a-symptomatic — I could see what the what due to all the studies I did + recently look good in-clinic on Vital Signs Monitor over several months → Very informed speakers yet unaware of the Stool Pigeon vector ( anti-vaxxer plant by CIA Sisters of boom ) Genomics do matter but my individual situation is much exposure to many things over 3.154e^8-th seconds + extended heavy activity and vigorous study of such things as Cod Liver Oil + much early work by 2 medical instructors and Martenson plus Campbell & Cottrell + Hansen or just whatever I could find → resistance has to be built up not suppressed by what is being done by public health

    Collateral Damage due to cannot get in for routine and just many details → I inform the new to this to run and re-run this video and watch as closely as you have brains even the critics

  29. Steven Cole says

    Dr Z: I'm a big fan. I would love to hear a segment on current testing reliability, because I'm having a hard time finding good data. Specifically: What are the sensitivity and specificity of the available nasal swab PCR, the saliva PCR, and the various rapid antigen tests? This seems especially important to understand now that the holidays are approaching and many people will want to have their children visit after a period of quarantine and a test or two.

  30. Carla Seier says

    SO good! Thank you for the incredible and applicable info for every day life!👍

  31. Lisa Dexter says

    ❤️ this! I’m a fitness instructor! Could never lose weight! Not being able to work the past 10 months, I’ve actually lost that 10 lbs I’ve been trying to get rid of for years! By not working out as much or as hard. And my pains are gone, well mostly. I had COVID back in March and it was almost nothing, just a bad cold.
