  • The ALL ME® Podcast Overcoming Life’s Challenges – Jon Peters After setting the national high school record for consecutive wins by a baseball pitcher young Jon Peters lands himself on the cover of the March 8th, 1989 Sports Illustrated magazine.  Growing up in Brenham, TX which is not only the Baseball Capital of Texas but it’s also the home of Blue Bell Ice Cream, Peters was on top of the world on the outside but struggling personally on the inside. Though out life many of us will struggle with what Jon is going to refer to as “self-limiting beliefs” and it’s how we handle these struggles that can determine our futures.  Jon is going to share his story of how he tried to take his life the night before he would set a national record for most consecutive high school wins by a pitcher.     Following Peters’ legendary high school career, he struggled with arm problems which took him away from the game of baseball which identified him. It was while he was in college that he began to consume alcohol.  In his early 30’s he was a heavy drinker that had a problem but he was afraid to reach out for help.   Shortly before his 40th Birthday he wanted to get help and finally asked for it.  He was able to check himself into a rehab clinic to get himself sober. As a believer in Christ he asked the lord to put something on his heart that could help people and that is when we got the idea to write a book about his life.  The title of his book is “When Life Grabs you by the Baseballs” which has helped not only his recovery but to share his story with others.  Within a few weeks of the books release he was called by a gentleman who had checked himself into rehab and got himself help because of the courage he received after reading Jon’s book. Today Jon is working on starting his own non-profit so that he can continue to help others who are struggling.  He is a life coach for young kids trying to keep them on the path to success while staying drug and alcohol free.  This has led to many speaking engagements in schools, churches and other venues.  We’re thankful to have someone like Jon on our podcast, it’s an interview you won’t want to miss.

  • The ALL ME® Podcast Operation Supplement Safety - Dr. Patty Duester and Andrea Lindsey Dietary Supplements are products we have likely all encountered at some point in our lives. It is an industry with over 50,000 different types of products and one that has surpassed over $40 billion dollars in revenue. It is also an industry with some regulation issues and therefore brings about some inherent health risks to using these products. Knowing that risk exists, it is important to make informed decisions when purchasing and taking any dietary supplements. In this episode, we will talk Dr. Patty Duester and Andrea Lindsey from Operation Supplement Safety (OSS), a group that is helping others make those informed decisions.   While OSS has resources available for all, their specific focus is on dietary supplement use within the Department of Defense. In January 2012, the Assistant Secretary for Health Affairs requested a DoD-wide educational campaign on dietary supplements. In response to this request, the DoD Dietary Supplement Subcommittee (DSSC), the U.S. Army Public Health Command, and the Consortium for Health and Military Performance (CHAMP) at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USU) began developing a DoD-wide educational campaign—Operation Supplement Safety, or OPSS—to increase awareness within the DoD community about potential health risks and how to choose safe dietary supplements. OPSS’s mission is to provide the best evidence-based information about dietary supplements to Military Service Members, their families, healthcare providers, and leaders to achieve human performance optimization. Since many Military Service Members use dietary supplements-for promoting health, improving performance, bodybuilding, losing weight, and more-their goal is to provide the tools and resources to help users make informed decisions about dietary supplements to reduce the potential risks to their health and careers.

DMAA is not a dietary ingredient, and DMAA-containing products marketed as dietary supplements are illegal and their marketing violates the law.

  • The ALL ME® Podcast Dopinglinkki -  Hanna-Kaisa Jussila If you follow our work here at the Taylor Hooton Foundation, you will notice that most of our programs and education are taking place in the United States, but that certainly doesn’t mean that the use of Appearance and Performance Enhancing Substances isn’t happening world wide. The desire to achieve your physical goals creates pressures that are universal. So in this episode we will be heading to Finland to talk with Hanna-Kaisa Jussila, the Development Coordinator at Dopinglinkki. Doppinglinkki is a health organization based in Finland to help those that encounter or want to learn more about doping substances in their country. Dopinglinkki services are intended for fitness enthusiasts who use doping substances, their friends and family members, professionals from different fields who meet users of doping in their work, and all those interested in the effects of doping substances. Since their focus is on the everyday person that may encounter these substances, not on the usage in professional sports, they have a good insight into the depth and scope of the doping landscape in their country. In this episode we are going to learn more about that landscape and the issues they are seeing in Finland to see how it compares to the issues we face here in the United States. What substances are they seeing used there? Why are their people getting involved? What kind of supplement usage are they seeing? And ultimately, how are they using education, just as we are, to spread much needed information in the area of Appearance and Performance Enhancing Substances.

  • The ALL ME® Podcast The Anabolic Doc – Dr. Thomas O’Connor The ALL ME Podcast is going to provide you with information from the nations leading experts when it comes to anything Appearance and Performance Enhancing Substance related.   During this interview, which will take places in two parts, we visit with Dr. Thomas O’Connor, better known as the Anabolic Doc. Dr. Thomas O'Connor is the only Board Certified Internist in the U.S. who focusses his practice on the care of men and women who have used or are using anabolic steroids. He is the first American Physician to address steroid use head-on and offers his expert medical services for those who are concerned about how anabolic steroids can and may have adversely affected their health. Dr. O'Connor understands why people use Anabolic Steroids, and since 2005 has helped thousands of people retain their health. His patients include anyone who is using or has used anabolic steroids, pro-Hormones or other anabolic/androgenic agents (SARMS, anti-estrogens, fertility medications of various types, HGH, IGF, Peptides, clenbuterol, insulin, thyroid preparations, diuretics, amphetamines and other medical agents) and is concerned for their health. He is going to break down anabolic androgenic steroids, Di-Hydro Testosterone or DHT, testosterone and others.  Not only is he going to give us a full history of why these drugs were designed but how they’re used in modern medicine and the side effects that can come along with abusing these drugs. One of the most important muscles in our bodies that can be effected when using anabolic steroids is our heart and cardiovascular system.  Dr. O’Connor will give us a ton of information as to how these drugs effect the heart and why educating people about this is so very important to him and his work. Education and awareness is something Dr. O’Connor is passionate about so he puts out a lot of great content on YouTube.  You can find his channel by searching the Anabolic Doc or find the direct link below.  While Dr. O’Connor has cared for professional and amateur athletes in the body-building, power lifting, strong man and CrossFit world- he spends most of his time helping regular people who have used these agents for personal reasons.

This is an ingredient I’ve personally heard mixed facts and false information about in my 20 years of working with athletes.

  • The ALL ME® Podcast An Athlete’s Voice – Katie Uhlaender Have you ever taken steps to support a cause that is near and dear to your heart? Have you ever used your own platform to raise awareness of a societal issue that needs reform? Taking those steps to effect change for a cause you are invested in is not often easy, but often necessary.  In this episode we speak with one of our ALL ME Advisory Board Members, Katie Uhlaendar. Katie is an Olympian in the sport of Skeleton, a winter sliding sport. Not only is Katie a four time Olympian, she is a World Champion, a 2 time World Cup Champion, an Intercontinental Cup Champion, a North American Cup Champion and more in the sport of skeleton. In the midst of her career, she placed 4th in the 2014 Sochi Olympics, ultimately finishing behind Elena Nikitina, an athlete that was implicated in the State Sponsored Russian Doping Program. When the findings of this program were announced, she was awarded an Olympic medal, when Elena was stripped of the 2014 bronze medal for this doping violation. However, Elena’s medal ended up being reinstated on appeal, a decision announced just before the 2018 Olympics. Instead of choosing the path of anger and resentment, she has taken her efforts to reform Olympic organizations to Congress and the Court of Arbitration for Sport, seeking support for athletes in need and penalties for countries that skirt doping laws.   Katie was one of our first female ALL ME Advisory Board members and one of those people that come to mind when we hear the words role model. In the midst of an impressive career in skeleton, she has been an outspoken advocate for fair play along the way and is always fighting for what is just and right for her fellow athletes. She is out there achieving all her goals the right way and we are honored to have her by our side.

  • The ALL ME® Podcast Versatility of Omega 3 Fats If you heard the word Omega 3, what would be the first thing that comes to mind? Would you think about a Fish Oil Supplement you were recommended to take by your doctor, that salmon you love in your sushi, or that can of sardines your buddy tells you he has for lunch or is that one time when you had Fish Burps after taking supplements and wanted to cringe. When I hear fish oil I think versatility as I consider it the Swiss army knife of nutrients due to the various benefits. In this episode, I speak with Karla Schmidt, Certified Nutritionist and Field Education Manager for Nordic Naturals to discuss all things related to fish oil. We’ll cover the benefits of Omega 3, why Fish Burps may mean you’re not taking a good quality fish oil, the difference between EPA and DHA (the 2 key essential fatty acids in omega 3), Omega 3 Index test, and why plant based omegas may not be doing you much good.

  • Tom Galvin – Internet Security & Safety In a fast paced ever changing world, we rely daily on the internet and social media to gather our information.  According to a report from Digital 2019 Reports, more than six hours of our day is spent online.  While the internet and social media can be a great place for us to spend our time, it can be a very dangerous and dark place as well. In this Episode we’re talking with Tom Galvin, a strategic communications and government relations executive with over 20 years of corporate, enterprise, cyber security and public affairs experience.  Tom has engaged with criminals online to uncover those who were stealing credit card information and selling illegal drugs, to expose the dark world of the internet.  He does this so that people like us listening to this podcast can be more aware of the things we and our loved one’s can fall into while online, even in the safety of our own homes. In 2013 Tom founded the Digital Citizens Alliance (DCA), a consumer-focused group whose mission is to raise awareness among the public and policymakers about how to make the Internet safer.  In October of 2013, the Taylor Hooton Foundation partnered with the DCA to put together an investigative report about how YouTube was allowing advertising for sites that you could purchase illegal Anabolic Steroids.  Watch Video Here:  In 2019, we partnered again with the DCA to uncover more information about Anabolic Steroids and Human Growth Hormone that was, and still is, being sold on major Social Media platforms including:  Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.  We’re going to dive into what this report uncovered in the podcast, but you can read the report by clicking the link below in the resource section. Below you will see a picture of the Nandrolone that Tom and his team purchased on Facebook.  Traces of Nandrolone Decanoate were found in the samples sent to the lab. Towards the end of the show Tom tell us that if Hollywood made a movie about him that John Cusack would play him.  As you can see there is quite a resemblance. Resource Links: Digital Citizens Alliance: Report – “Digital Platforms on Steroids:  How Facebook and Google Enable the Sale of Illegal Appearance and Performance Enhancing Drugs”  Washington Post Article – “The sale of illicit wares across social media platforms is raising questions about how well the companies are policing their sites.”  Did You Know? Over 1.5 million teens admit to using anabolic steroids. The #1 reason young people turn to anabolic steroids is to look better. Up to 25% of Dietary Supplements are contaminated with illegal drugs and banned substances. 85% of students have never been educated on this topic.

  • The ALL ME® Podcast SARMs - What does the research say? - Dr. James Dalton Athletes are always looking for a competitive edge and many choose to take the clean approach in doing things the right by Training Hard, Eating Right, and Playing Fair. This is actually what we at the Taylor Hooton Foundation say is ALL ME. But there are those who look for ways to try and cheat the system by using a performance enhancing substance. Fairly new to the market is a product called Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators or SARMs, which was first introduced in 1998 as a non-steroidal therapeutic drug. Prohibited for use in all collegiate and professional sports, some athletes feel they may be a safer alternative to steroids. Why are SARMs banned for competition and are they safe to take? Are they a safer alternative to steroids and what does the research say about dosage? In this episode, I will be speaking with Dr. James Dalton who has spent over 20 years researching the effects of SARMs in clinical populations as well as exploring the potential side effects of SARMs, their safety, and whether or not he would recommend SARMs to his 19 year old son who was asking about their use and safety?   Dr. Dalton’s Bio James T. Dalton, Ph.D. is Dean and Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences in the College of Pharmacy at the University of Michigan.  He received his Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy from the University of Cincinnati (1986) and Doctor of Philosophy in pharmaceutics and pharmaceutical chemistry from Ohio State University (1990).  Dean Dalton rose through the faculty ranks in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences in the College of Pharmacy at the University of Tennessee (1992-2000) before returning to Ohio State where he served as Professor and Chair in the Division of Pharmaceutics (2000-2007).  He began an entrepreneurial leave of absence from Ohio State in 2005 and finally left OSU in 2007 to devote his full time effort as Chief Scientific Officer at GTx, Inc. in Memphis, TN (2007-2014) where he oversaw the preclinical and clinical development of selective androgen receptor modulators, which he will be talking about today.   He was recently elected to the National Academy of Medicine and is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS).   He has co-authored over 300 original abstracts and peer-reviewed scientific manuscripts and is an inventor on over 400 United States and international patent applications related to selective androgen receptor modulators, selective estrogen receptor alpha and beta ligands, tubulin antagonists, and receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitors.  Resource Links:  Did You Know?
