Ray peat on the miracle healing power of progesterone and co2 | rejuvenate podcast ep.28

September 26, 2023 - Krissy Hawkes & Elwin Robinson

Dr Ray Peat, a professor who specialized in hormones, had some controversial theories. It's easy to dismiss him if you've never read his work, but does he have a point?

As Dr Peat becomes more well known, embraced by other popular health gurus, Elwin Robinson and Krissy Hawkes discuss if some of his most controversial ideas, like:

"Estrogen is not the primary female hormone, it is a stress hormone. If there is such a thing as a primary female hormone it's progesterone."

"CO2 is more important than oxygen"

"Light is healthy, darkness is unhealthy"

As well as discussing Elwin's favorite thing he learned from Peat, and what he feels may not be Dr Peat's strongest arguments.
