Today, I am blessed to have here with me John Schott. Establishing himself as one of South Florida’s most groundbreaking and pioneering leaders in the health field, John set himself aside from the pack with the opening of his restaurant and retail space, Lifefood Gourmet, South Florida's first gourmet raw food restaurant.

His food and health services have touched the lives of high profile celebrities, athletes, and executives. He is also very mindful of the value of giving his time and service for greater causes by volunteering his time to various charitable causes, implementing nutritional youth outreach programs and to teaching underprivileged children about healthy cooking and lifestyles. John leads workshops and detox retreats in Florida, New York City, and South America.

He has attained certifications such as Iridologist from NY Center for Iridology based on Bernard Jensen Iridology, Lifefood Culinary Chef & Phoenix Fastician from Jubb’s Longevity Live Food Culinary Chef from NYC. John has studied closely with the top pioneering authors & practitioners for the last 10 years in the alternative health field.

His knowledge of and experience with detoxification, nutritional cleansing, wellness & lifestyle coaching has led him to create a model evolving from a decade of apprenticeship, self-study, and hands-on application with hundreds of clients. He has in-depth insights into areas of health pertained to nutritional timing (or “ time conscious" eating), Gerson Therapy, and other alternative healing modalities & longevity strategies. John has created health and performance programs for some of the world's highest performance professionals.

In this episode, John Schott opens the show by diving deep into his journey and why he started in the health space. Then, we jump into using a foam roller and lacrosse ball to relieve pain properly. Later, John gives us the scoop on his book, Rewilding Covid: Natural and Practical Health Solutions for Optimizing Your Immunity During the Coronavirus Pandemic and Beyond. Tune in as we chat about the importance of grounding, how movement can change your life, and why breathing correctly is critical for overall health.

[00:30] All About John Schott & How He Started In The Health Space

  • John’s story has always been about helping humanity.
  • On John’s health journey, he explored vegetarian diets and vegan diets. In fact, he was vegan for almost seven years.
  • One day, John found peace and realized that the only thing you need is to love. It made him double down on the practice of wellness, health, and vitality.
  • The concept of health is so important and so fascinating that John is still passionate about it after all these years.
  • The health space is a great place to be right now because a lot of people are waking up to it finally.

[12:00] How To Use A Foam Roller And Lacrosse Ball Properly

  • Hamstrings usually get very tight. So, put the lacrosse ball on a hard chair under the most tender points of the hamstring, and let your muscles sink into it.
  • As you sink into it the ball, you're basically pinning that trigger point. Also, you will be alleviating the calcium deposit.
  • Sawing away at a foam roller is not the best approach. Instead, use the pin and shear method on your foam roller.
  • Using a foam roller or lacrosse ball is better after a workout rather than before.

[20:50] Why John Wanted To Write A Book About Covid

  • Honestly, John didn’t want to write a book about Covid. However, the book is what we need because of Covid.
  • When John says Rewilding Covid, it means taking your health into your own hands.
  • Rewilding means tuning ourselves back into the wild aspect of what makes us a real human. Plus, it means that you're mimicking basically what our ancestors did naturally.
  • For John, being wild means having freedom. Ideally, we will all wind up being in control of our spirit.
  • “We are wild humans at heart.” -John Schott

[31:40] The Power of Human Adaptability During Covid

  • The one thing that we can control is how we interact with our environment and how we adapt.
  • One of the most fascinating things about humans is our ability to adapt.
  • As our environments change, we have to change with the environment.
  • We need to help our body become more resilient, stronger, and better.
  • Even if there is a virus in our environment, we know how to make changes and adapt.

[38:55] What Is Grounding And Can It Improve Health?

  • The beautiful thing about grounding is that it's free.
  • We have generations and ancestral templates of being connected to the magnetic frequency of the Earth.
  • The Earth has a pulse and a magnetic frequency that's anti-inflammatory, restorative, and rejuvenating.
  • With grounding, your body can breathe, and your cells can breathe.
  • For ten minutes each day, take your shoes off and put your feet on the bare ground.
  • When grounding, you will feel less stress.

[43:15] John Gives Tips On How You Can Become More Resilient

  • Weave in movement throughout the day, as much as you can; it is very critical for overall health.
  • John says that walking is very underrated. Going for long walks is extremely healthy, and it is restorative.
  • Sometimes, what you need is more restoration.
  • If you sit for long periods of time, stand up every thirty minutes and shake it out.
  • Once that body starts feeling strong and good, it affects the way you think.
  • When people have clogged limbs, and they're not able to detoxify properly. So, get moving!

[45:20] The Importance of Proper Breathing For Overall Health

  • Oxygen is life!
  • Most of the time, people have cold hands and feet because they are not getting proper oxygen to the extremities.
  • Sometimes, reproduction, libido, and the drive that we have for life will get challenged because of the lack of oxygenation.
  • The way we breathe and what we're breathing is fundamental.
  • Do deep diaphragmatic breathing through your nose – never through the mouth.
  • Get good quality plants to help oxygenate the air.
