“Hello Patrick from Melbourne Australia,
Just a quick message to say thank you and to let you know that I enjoyed your show with Dr Ray Peat immensely. He has so much knowledge across a broad spectrum of topics. Thank you so much for bringing him on and for doing what you do!!! I hope to hear more of Dr Peat in your future shows.”


“I just want to tell you how much I enjoy your recent interviews with Dr Ray Peat. I am thrilled waiting for the next one. I have known his work for quite some time, but it is so refreshing to listen to your shows. I hope you will carry on with cooperation. Dr Peat has endless knowledge to share and each time I listen to him I find something new and eye-opening. His knowledge and perspective are absolutely unique. In the world of keto, low carb nonsense, sugar hate and corrupted science, he is the last voice of honesty and sanity.” Best regards Ania from Poland

Ray Peat acquired his PhD from the University of Oregon with a specialization in physiology. He started his work on hormones in 1968 and wrote his dissertation in 1972 in which he outlined his ideas on progesterone and the hormones closely related to it. His main thesis is that energy and structure are interdependent at every level.

Some emails asked and answered:

I enjoyed your show with Dr Peat last week and can’t wait for the next interview.
I started eating chicken necks, carrot salads, and oranges to help my thyroid with great results. I feel warmer and have more energy.
Please ask the following questions:
1. How does canned milk compare to fresh milk in terms of nutritional value?
2. Is goat milk and goat cheese good sources for calcium and protein? I don’t tolerate cow’s milk.
Dr. peat recommended thyroid supplement for anyone over 30. theoretically, would this b on a daily basis, continually, and how much?till death does us part? Would this b the same for male or female? how bout if over 60 times around the sun, does amount & frequency increase?
Can Mr. Peat offer some recommendations on how to remove lipofuscin accumulation – aka “age spots” – from the surface of the skin, both topical and internal?
Do you if using food grade clay benefits and how much would one use for detox? Ditto on food grade charcoal and I also use coconut charcoal? Have you ever done or know of food detox with Dr. Purcell and she is now deceased It basically is using blue label only clorox with one teaspoon in a gallon of water. You then use vegies,fruits,eggs,meats etc…for certain time and then put in fresh water for same time to detox food
Many doctors and researchers including those that appear on Patrick’s shows vouch for usefulness of n-3 fish oils, claiming that they help alleviate inflammation in retina, brain, joints and blood vessels. For them it’s not just a nice theory, they claim that it has been working for their patients. A quick search for scientific articles on internet yields many studies where it has been proven how n-3 fish oils have reduced inflammation that caused joint pain, cardiac inflammation, prevented and reversed dementia and neuro-degenerative disease and even helped destroy cancer-cells
Over 100 years ago, it was well known among endocrinologists that accessory thyroid glands are common (usually between the aortic arch and the hyoid bone, sometimes within the bone itself). How effective are these accessory thyroids if the primary gland is removed?
Having trouble with high levels of barium and high blood pressure. Can you suggest any detox for this drove semi trucks for years and was told fuel additives caused this situation?
Would eating grapefruit or drinking freshly squeezed grapefruit juice have the same anti-estrogenic effects as having orange juice?
What’s the best way to activate our own stem cells verse getting them injected
Does decaf coffee still have some of the same benefits that regular coffee offers? I understand that the benefits of the caffeine itself arenl gone, so is it even worth drinking? I know that the method of removing caffeine matters – I buy “Swiss process” decaf
For years I was always cold day and night. Now I’m really warm most of the time. I took armor thyroid a few years ago but I can’t find it anywhere now. They then switched to nature thyroid and now that isn’t available so I’m using no thyroid because nature thyroid is no longer available. Is this as good as armour thyroid?
Should I be taking any thyroid supplement?

Over the years, through changes in diet, exercises, and diligently taking the supplements my doctors have recommended, I have been able to lower my triglycerides levels to between 400 mlg and 500 mlg.  The prescribed supplements are 2,400 mlgs of Omega 3, 6, and 9, in the proper ratios, twice a day.  What should I replace these supplements with?

    Loving these Ray Peat shows!

    Ray Peat’s advice to drink cow’s milk and orange juice is nonsense. Where did paleo man, during 200,000 years of evolution, obtain such foods? Wild cattle would run a mile and good luck finding oranges during ice ages. What’s wrong with clean water and low-PUFA, cooked-nut milks for modern variety?


    • March 23, 2019 @ 10:39 am patrick

      let’s see, probably from cows and orange trees. And I am sure they could have picked up some
      cooked nut milks at Whole Foods back then.

      Just because paleo men did not eat something or eat in a similar way does not make it nonsensical. One of the reasons Dr Peat recommends milk as a good source of protein and calcium is because of the good calcium to phosphate ratio of milk and cheese. Muscle meat and nuts both contain too much phosphate in relation to calcium. Nut milk is also inferior in terms of protein content, sugar content etc.

      Clean water is often not so clean these days, I think, but with fluoride and other industrial/estrogenic toxins.

      Mongols got milk from wild yak without domesticating them. No point guessing what paleo man ate if it’s clear something is excellent for us right now.

      To think man is dropped in a perfect world with nothing left to figure out or improve on is pretty nonsensical… OJ is mentioned by Peat as one good example. If you follow Patrick’s guests (Russell Finch), you have seen you can grow them in an ice age too. Another former guest (Tony Wright) may have spoken about how we got or developed the brain thanks to fruits in the first place. It’s never too late to get one too! ;-)

    We need Dr. Peat and more of his straightforward insights. Patrick, when is he coming back for another show?

    The thyroid supplement that Dr. Peat takes is here: http://www.farmaciadelnino.mx/product_info.php/products_id/491.
    My question is, has anyone from the U.S. ordered & received it without a prescription? The website states that this is a medical product that requires a prescription.
