In this nearly 2.5-hour episode, Dr. Rhonda Patrick and Dr. Roger Seheult and Kyle Allred of MedCram make a thoughtful, merit-based, and truly comprehensive discussion of COVID-19 vaccination.

In addition to being a co-founder of MedCram Medical Lectures, Dr. Roger Seheult is, as you will find out in the conversation, a boots on the ground, critical care pulmonologist.

For Dr. Seheult, COVID-19 is not just theory. He sees real sick people and for that reason brings a very special context to this conversation. Furthermore, Dr. Seheult is also an academic and educator. He is an Associate Clinical Professor at the University of California, Riverside School of Medicine and an Assistant Clinical Professor at the School of Medicine and Allied Health at Loma Linda University. He is quadruple-board certified in Internal Medicine, Pulmonary Diseases, Critical Care Medicine and Sleep Medicine through the American Board of Internal Medicine.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • 06:58 - Vaccination in the young and healthy
  • 12:25 - Risk of myocarditis
  • 16:18 - Long-haul COVID
  • 25:36 - Spike protein cytotoxicity
  • 34:16 - Biodistribution
  • 41:17 - COVID-19 Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS)
  • 01:06:55 - Antibody-dependent enhancement
  • 01:14:54 - Do the COVID-19 vaccines damage human fertility?
  • 01:19:51 - mRNA vaccines altering human DNA
  • 01:28:10 - Current ivermectin evidence
  • 01:47:40 - Delta-variant and breakthrough infections
  • 02:01:42 - Viral evolution (virulence vs. immune escape)
  • 02:10:45 - T-cell immunity vs. antibody immunity

Dr. William ("Bill") Harris is one of the world's preeminent experts in the field of omega-3 fatty acid research. His work has focused on the roles that fatty acids in play in cardiovascular and neurocognitive health.

The author of more than 300 scientific papers on fatty acids and health, Dr. Harris is a professor in the Department of Medicine in the Sanford School of Medicine at the University of South Dakota, the co-inventor of the Omega-3 Index, founder of OmegaQuant Analytics, and president and founder of the Fatty Acid Research Institute.

In this episode, Dr. Harris and I discuss…

  • 00:06:36 How early studies on dietary fats and cholesterol levels spawned the field of omega-3 research.
  • 00:14:44 How standards of "normal" bleeding time may be abnormally high in Western countries, leading to some misconception on the effects of omega-3.
  • 00:20:33 How different types of omega-3s, such as alpha-linolenic acid, share structural similarities with marine omega-3s but not the same cardioprotective effects.
  • 00:25:23 How genetic engineering of plants may yield abundant, sustainable omega-3s in the future.
  • 00:27:18 What the omega-3 index test is, how it was created, and how it reveals individual variations in how much omega-3 we may need.
  • 00:32:13 How red blood cell concentration of omega-3s better reflect long-term omega-3 status.
  • 00:36:41 How genetic variants influence omega-3 dietary needs.
  • 00:54:20 How the omega-3 index may predict life expectancy.
  • 01:05:03 How metabolites of omega-3 metabolism reduce and resolve inflammation.
  • 01:17:11 How people with high omega-3 concentrations were half as likely to die from COVID-19.
  • 01:20:10 How the omega-3 DHA may help keep the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein from entering cells.
  • 01:22:50 How concerns over the omega-6/omega-3 ratio may be unfounded, and it really may boil down to just how much omega-3 you're taking in.

Dr. Ashley Mason is a clinical psychologist and director of the Sleep, Eating, and Affect Laboratory at the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine at UCSF. Her research centers on nonpharmacological approaches for treating depression, insomnia, and overeating.

In this episode, you’ll hear Rhonda and Ashley discuss:

  • 00:08:10 - How whole-body hyperthermia (WBH) and sauna use differ. 
  • 00:17:06 - How people with depression have thermoregulatory dysfunction – but sauna use may correct it.
  • 00:21:12 - How WBH and sauna use may reduce symptoms of depression.
  • 00:33:22 - How heating the body slowly may improve heat tolerance and increase WBH effectiveness. 
  • 00:39:35 - How sauna use may benefit people with depression and cardiovascular disease – which often coincide. 
  • 00:40:18 - How Dr. Mason and I are collaborating on a new research project to measure biomarkers associated with depression and WBH.
  • 00:44:19 - How sauna bathing and similar practices often provide opportunities for people to connect socially. 
  • 00:53:12 - How insomnia differs from being a "night owl."
  • 00:57:10 - How insomnia often arises from major changes in a person's life. 
  • 01:01:26 - How cognitive behavioral therapy, sleep hygiene, stimulus control, and sleep restriction can help treat insomnia without drugs.  
  • and so much more!
