Awesome Health Podcast with Wade Lightheart #2
David explains what PTSD is and why he thinks so many people are now experiencing it. PTSD stands for post-traumatic stress disorder and is a mental health diagnosis. David describes it as a traumatic event or catastrophic stressor outside of the range of typical human experiences.
The COVID-19 pandemic has been such an event for many people. David goes on to tell us what some of the symptoms of PTSD are as well as how chronic stress changes the brain. Chronic stress changes neural networks and cortisol levels, which creates a domino effect that hardwires pathways between the hippocampus and the amygdala.
This rewiring from chronic stress can become permanent and actually change your long-term memory and can even lead to a reduction in grey matter (i.e., dying or dead brain cells). That reduction in grey matter can mean increased brain fog and slower processing times/mental acuity.
David also tells how to tell if we might be experiencing PTSD and what we can do about it through the use of nootropics. This article (link here) has a list of symptoms of PTSD so you can check it out for yourself, you can also read about it on David’s web site or get a diagnosis from a therapist of psychiatrist.
If you think you might have some of the symptoms or if you know someone who does, there are supplements that can help. Ashwagandha is one and it works by reducing the stress hormone cortisol, lowers blood sugar levels and improves lipid profiles. But in the brain it actually works to rebuild axons and dendrites and reconstruct synapses (where neurons talk to each other in the brain). In short, this means ashwagandha can help boost memory and rewire neural networks in the brain that were negatively impacted by stress.
On this episode of Awesome Health podcast, David tells us about a few other supplements that can help with PTSD symptoms including Rhodiola Rosea. We then talk about how stacking these supplements (or any other nootropics) makes a difference in their effectiveness and how to start off slowly while you build your own stack.
He also explains why stacking is a must when treating PTSD and so much else!

Team SuperDad with Jonnie Jensen
What are nootropics and can they make you superhuman? The answer seems to be Yes.
Nootropics are supplements based on food and naturally occurring substances. Whilst they can’t perhaps create quite the highs of recreational drugs they can certainly be used to enhance how you perform. With a bit of research and understanding you can improve literally any area of your life – work, sex, concentration, energy, memory, vision.
Who better to speak to and learn more about nootropics than World renowned expert David Tomen.
Jonnie and David talk about learning how to get past the jargon and the terms that can be difficult to understand. And instead, learn how to evaluate what nootropics you need. And how to choose the best nootropics from reputable companies.

The Rebel Health Podcast with Thom Underwood
David Tomen’s journey with nootropic supplements began when he was diagnosed with Adult ADD. After years of buying self-help books, being passed over for promotions, and even suffering depression over his inability to focus, Ritalin helped turn his life and career around.
But a few short years later, David was in the ER with a laundry list of symptoms. Not only was David struggling to focus again but now he was suffering from complete memory loss, chronic fatigue, and depression — and his business and marriage were in deep trouble. Fighting for his life, David again turned to nootropic supplements.
With a methodically researched regimen of supplements and lifestyle changes, he was able to not only recover but get his brain working better than ever before.
After experiencing firsthand what nootropic supplements were capable of, David founded NootropicsExpert.com and wrote two books — “Secrets of the Optimized Brain” and “Head First” — all with the intent of helping others achieve the same transformational success that he had.
David also has a knack for explaining this cutting-edge neuroscience in a digestible and engaging way that cuts through the marketing and scientific jargon that so often surrounds the supplement industry, and that’s why I brought him onto the show today.

Ever Forward Radio with Chase Chewing
After suffering from career-threatening and life-altering ADHD and other health concerns he decided to not have to rely solely on prescription medication for the rest of his life. Nootropics are a very special and very powerful group of natural substances found in nature, such as medicinal mushrooms, roots, herbs, adaptogens, etc. that are the key to unlocking unique parts of our brain.
Nootropics have been used for thousands of years and studied by modern science to prove their ability to enhance mood, improve memory, strengthen our focus power and even some have been proven to help create new neural pathways and strengthen the myelination around our brain cells and neurons to help thwart against such diseases as Alzheimer’s, dementia, ADD, ADHD, and other neurological conditions.
