Description

Welcome to being Bulletproof, the State of High Performance where you take control and improve your biochemistry, your body, and your mind so they work in unison, helping you execute at levels far beyond what you’d expect, without burning out, getting sick, or just acting like a stressed-out a-hole.

Bulletproof Radio was born out of a 20-year single-minded crusade to upgrade the human being using every available technology. It distills the knowledge of world-class doctors, biochemists, scientists, Olympic nutritionists, meditation experts, and mavericks. Dave has spent more than $1M on personal health experiments. From private brain EEG facilities hidden in a Canadian forest to remote monasteries in Tibet, from Silicon Valley to the Andes, high-tech entrepreneur Dave Asprey used hacking techniques and tried everything himself, obsessively focused on discovering: What are the simplest things you can do to be better at everything?

It used to take a lifetime to radically rewire the human body and mind. Technology has changed the rules. Follow along as Dave Asprey and guests provide you with everything you need to upgrade your mind, body, and life.

How Early Childhood Attachment Sets Your Relationship Patterns – Daniel P. Brown, Ph.D., with Dave Asprey : 718
00:39:50

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest’s expertise ranges from trauma, attachment theory and hypnosis to ancient traditions of meditation. In fact, he’s a Buddhist Meditation Master. This is the first of a two-part series you don’t want to miss.

Dan Brown, Ph.D., is an Associate Clinical Professor of Psychology at Harvard University Medical School. He also teaches hypnotherapy. He’s been on the faculty for nearly 40 years. 

We explore how early childhood attachment can define your relationships positively or negatively. As the world-leading expert on attachment theory, Dr. Brown shares share his research findings and give you options.

“There are two relational maps,” says Dr. Brown. “The first one forms about 12 to 20 months. That's the attachment map. The second one forms about the third and fourth year of life. That's called CCRT or Core Conflict Relationship Theme map. The difference between those two maps is the second map is much more complicated, and it's much more accessible to memory. The difference, put simply, is that there's a difference between whether you have trouble with relationships or within relationships.”

Dr. Brown also expanded his work to study the Buddhist approach.

“In the West we study psychopathology and psychiatric conditions,” he says. “In Buddhism, they studied positive states, so that's the other half of the map. Once you've worked through the negative stuff, all that leaves you with is a basic everyday unhappiness. If you work on developing the mind in the positive sense, you will be onto happiness and contentment in life, into awakening.”

I asked Dr. Brown how people could fix the broken stuff if they had early childhood trauma and were struggling in their adult relationships. He offers hope, treatments and says no one is left behind if they need help.  

The other really cool thing we get into is hypnosis, which is actually just a “talent for heightened attentiveness.” Dr. Brown worked for over 100 hours with Sirhan Sirhan, the man accused of assassinating Robert F. Kennedy. You didn’t see that coming, did you? Listen on to learn what he found out!

The Sexual Technique That Doubles Your Mind Power – Mantak Chia with Dave Asprey : 717
00:42:12

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, Dave Asprey talked with Master Mantak Chia about sexual energy. Dave has tested out the Taoist teachings of male ejaculation versus orgasm and discovered that they work. During this interview, he gets answers to serious questions about why.

Master Chia is the director of the Tao Garden Health Spa and the Universal Healing Tao training center in northern Thailand and a world-renowned expert on Sexual Tao. Master Chia has authored more than 60 books, including Taoist ForeplaySexual Reflexology: Activating the Taoist Points of Love, and the bestselling The Multi-Orgasmic Man

 A student of several Taoist masters, Master Chia founded the Healing Tao System in North America more than 40 years ago and developed it worldwide as European Tao Yoga and Universal Healing Tao. He tours the globe giving workshops and lectures and has taught tens of thousands of students and instructors.

Taoism considers sex to be a sacred act. “Sacred because sexual energy is the reunion of two major forces, love and sex,” says Master Chia. 

In this how-to episode, you’ll learn how to lengthen a penis and strengthen a vagina. You’ll also learn how to harness sexual energy to increase your creative power and even extend your lifespan.

“If you can control ejaculation, you can control so many things,” Master Chia says. “Fewer ejaculations mean more energy for your body and brain. And sexual energy makes you smarter.”

Master Chia and Dave also get further into Taoist practices like food, movement, breathing and mindfulness – and how they affect your life force. 

The ultimate key to all of this? “The primordial light, because light is everything,” says Master Chia. Listen on to find out more.

Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Orgasms – John Gray with Dave Asprey : 716
01:02:59

To My Listeners: I recorded this podcast in Park City, Utah, before coronavirus halted travel.

This episode of Bulletproof Radio is quite a rideboth fun and fascinating. Consider it sex ed for grownups taught by a former monk who was celibate for nine years. You’ll be surprised at how much you’ll learn. 

My guest is John Gray, author of one of the most well-known and trusted relationship books of all time, “Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus.” It’s been recognized as a top 10 “most influential books” of the last quarter century. His Mars/Venus book series has forever changed the way men and women view their relationships. 

For more than 20 years, he’s helped couples deepen their intimacy and rejuvenate their love lives. His newest title (of nearly two dozen books), “Beyond Mars and Venus: Relationship Skills for Today's Complex World,” covers love and sex in our modern life.

His many books, blogs and free online workshops at MarsVenus.com provide practical insights to improve relationships at all stages of life and love. You don’t want to miss our discussion of the many layers of sexuality and how men and women approach intimacy differently.

Hormonal balance plays a big role in sexual health. “Just as a rule of thumb,” John says, “anytime a man is passive, irritable, depressed, angry, frustrated, grumpy, his testosterone is low.” Women are affected by rising and falling estrogen levels, as well. Biologically, hormones rule sex lives, so it’s important that we recognize what our bodies are doing.

On a practical level, John walks listeners through nine types of orgasm, the benefits of sex without ejaculating and how people can become desensitized by porn or overstimulation. 

“When you're with someone in physical touching,” John says, “there's a lot of different hormones that get produced to keep sex from being overstimulating because anything which is overstimulating destimulates you, desensitizes your ability to be turned on to your partner.”

He also offers some interesting tips and techniques that can increase both your partner’s sexual pleasure and your own.

Investing in Life Extension Means Affordable Longevity for Everyone – Sergey Young with Dave Asprey : 715
00:41:38

To My Listeners: I recorded this podcast at the Abundance 360 event at the Beverly Hilton before coronavirus halted travel.

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is Sergey Young, a man who’s determined to cure aging and live to be 200. And he’s bringing one billion people along for the ride. Today’s conversation will change what you think about human lifespan. 

He comes at this issue from personal experience. A health scare made him take control of his own healing and realize others could, too–with the right awareness and tools. Simple and effective things that people feel they could actually do and sustain over time. Simply up the education factor to dispel the fear that people often have around life extension.

Sergey also believes that healthy life extension can be affordable and accessible to everyone. From personal solutions to corporate wellness programs.

“Today in society, we have so many dividing things,” Sergey says. “We almost need something which would unite the nation and nations as well, so I think that longevity and extending our healthy and happy life span, just amazing things. But then speaking about affordability and accessibility … the only technologies and companies that we're investing in should pass the affordability filter.”

Sergey’s work as a longevity investor is finding ways to make this possible by building on his investment expertise, which spans over 20 years. 

  • His Longevity Vision Fund funnels $100 million into innovative technology breakthroughs, services and products that make living longer a reality within our reach. 
  • He’s an Innovation Board Member at XPRIZE Foundation dedicated to solving the world’s biggest problems.
  • He’s a Development Sponsor of Longevity XPRIZE, a global initiative designed to incentivize the development of technological breakthroughs to cure aging.
  • He’s a Financial Advisory Board Member at APPG for Longevity helping to shape national longevity strategy in the UK.


“We also need to show the hope and opportunity there, but also it is about communicating and it is about creating a sustainable economic model around longevity,” Sergey says.

Listen on to find out how you can be one of the billion people he helps.

Find Out Exactly What Your Genes are Saying About Your Health – Naveen Jain & Ally Perlina : 714
00:58:54

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’m super excited to bring you some new information that can dramatically change how you manage your own health. My good friend Naveen Jain, founder and CEO of Viome, and Ally Perlina, Ph.D., the company’s chief translational science officer, join me to talk about a new test and personalized health program that Viome has developed and launched.

The breakthrough test is the first of its kind to show mitochondrial function, immune cell function, biological age, and cellular stress. And paired with Viome’s test for gut health, it’s now possible to get a complete digital snapshot of your microbial, mitochondrial, and human cellular health. This is your opportunity to prevent and reverse chronic disease.

The Health Intelligence Test now can quantify the things I’ve been talking about for years when it comes to mitochondria function and health.

“So, there are only three types of genes that are expressed in the human body,” Naveen says. “Your mitochondrial genes that are inside the cell of human cell, all the human genes that are expressed, and the microbial genes. And what if you can look at all of them and start to see how this system approach to how each one of them impacts each of us?”

“So, it's all actually truly interconnected,” says Ally, whose expertise is in molecular and systems biology and human genetics. “That's the system's view, and you have to figure out that which place in the system you need to act.”

“Literally everything is connected,” Naveen says. “And for the first time in the human history, we have a chance to actually look at all of that and apply the AI and machine learning to not only just look at the wonderful steps, to actually figure out what to do about it. And I'm just so damn excited, that we're finally there, finally there.”

Think You Know Good Fats from Bad? 8 Oils to Avoid – Dr. Cate Shanahan with Dave Asprey : 713
00:53:35

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’ve invited Dr. Cate Shanahan back to the show to talk about good fats and bad fats. She’s going to explain what’s happening with our fat cells and why the kind of fat you consume matters so much to your metabolic health.

Trained in biochemistry and genetics, Dr. Cate has spent nearly two decades working as a physician and nutrition specialist. Her newest book, The Fatburn Fix: Boost Energy, End Hunger, and Lose Weight by Using Body Fat for Fuel, will take you on a uniquely informed nutrition journey focused on your own fat and the fats you consume.

Dr. Cate created previously developed a nutrition program for the LA Lakers that many NBA and professional sports teams adopted and still use today. She’s been featured on a documentary and docuseries and been interviewed by major media outlets, radio talk shows and popular podcasts.

She’s also the author of two previous books devoted to nutrition: Deep Nutrition: Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food and Food Rules: A Doctor’s Guide to Healthy Eating.

“We've been living in this giant experiment because we've started eating fats that we know are great for seeds instead of fats that are great for animals,” Dr. Cate says. “That's a huge experiment. Anybody who says I'm promoting a fad diet, no. This is the opposite of the fad diet. It's the antidote to this experimental fad diet that we've been on.”

Dr. Cate says the kind of fat that’s in our own bodies is the root of inflammation. She then offers up four of the best things you can do nutritionally to boost your own immunity and beat inflammation. 

 During this pandemic, you have to be aware of any inflammation in your body. If you’re living on sugar and bad oils, well, that’s just what coronavirus thrives on, she says. While many parts of the world are slowing returning to a new normal, Covid-19 hasn’t gone away. Dr. Cate and I also talk about how certain types of fats make people more susceptible to viruses and infections, and give you tips on how to stay healthy.

Covid-19 is Changing the Virus Game & Blood Vessels are Losing – Dr. William Li with Dave Asprey : 712
00:58:50

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest, Dr. William Li, is sharing brand new research that shows COVID-19 causes severe damage to blood vessels. This leads to widespread blood clotting in the lungs.

He explains what all this means in real terms you can understand. He’s been deep into new research and is one of the authors of a study that was just published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Dr Li is an experienced internal medicine physician and author of the book, “Eat to Beat Disease.” He’s also a research scientist—specifically a vascular biologist. He’s been actively involved in angiogenesis research and clinical analysis for more than two decades. Angiogenesis is the development of new blood vessels and Dr. Li is one of the world’s leading experts in this field.

“Endothelium is just a fancy word to describe the cells that line the lining of our blood vessels,” Dr. Li says. “Endothelium is the connector that brings blood, oxygen, nutrients, everything to every single cell in our body, and if we block those channels, we wind up actually having big problems that happen in the heart, happen in the brain, and then diabetes.”

“It's actually very rare that you actually find a virus or bacteria invading an endothelial cell,” explains Dr. Li. But Covid-19 changed that game.

“We actually saw for the first time viruses invading endothelial cells and filling them up like a gumball machine. They were literally like zombies getting in infecting and then basically pulverizing the membranes from the inside out. There's something very unusual about this.”

Dr. Li and I talk about how Covid-19 acts more like a cold than the flu and other weird things. “The other thing we saw is massive inflammation–your immune system trying to clear out the virus in the infected endothelium,” he says.

Listen on as Dr. Li and I go way into the newest research about what else Covid-19 is doing in the human body and what you can do to strengthen your own immunity.

Inner Programming Hacks from the Queen of Poo – Suzy Batiz with Dave Asprey : 711
01:02:30

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, you'll find out how my guest built an empire by challenging societal norms after rising from life’s lowest lows by following an “alive” idea.  Suzy Batiz is a serial creator and expert in entrepreneurial intuition who’s best known as the founder of PooPourri, the all-natural before-you-go toilet spray. 

Suzy teaches people to tune into intuition and turn on their body intelligence to achieve a naturally abundant flow state. She also biohacks her own consciousness to tap into her creativity. We’re going to talk about the ways she defies, liberates, and transforms—and teaches others to do the same—in businesses and in life. 

“We can go back in, we can reprogram our subconscious mind, which is actually the birthplace of those original, that bad, well, old code, let’s call it old code,” Suzy says. “Because it’s not bad code because it was written for survival. But we can actually change that code and then we can start creating a different reality based on that new change. It’s really programming. I call it biohacking consciousness, but it’s actually reprogramming.”

From failure to process to managing crisis, Suzy’s refreshingly candid perspective will give you something to think about.

Light It Up: “Prior to [age] 38 was push, push, grind, grind, going towards something that I thought was actually going to make me happy,” Suzy says. “It was going to make me whole and complete. And then after the second bankruptcy, when I bottomed out, I was able to really look back and face myself. Now, what I say is, what’s worse than losing everything you have, is realizing you didn’t even have a good time doing it.” … “at least if the rug gets pulled out from underneath me again, I could look back and say I had a great time.”

Lean Out: “It’s easy for a company to get fat and all these processes and processes and processes,” Suzy says. “I’m a renegade, I’m a rebel, and we have so many processes, everything becomes slow and I’m always about keeping as many processes as we need, but not too many.” … “When you’re small and nimble and flexible, you can move quickly like that. The big guys can’t do that and that’s our advantage is the speed and agility.”

Consider Crisis:  “You don’t have to know what you're doing, but also if you don’t like figuring stuff out, really question if you want to be an entrepreneur,” Suzy says. “If it doesn't turn you on to solve these problems and be in crisis after crisis after crisis and don’t even go there.”]

Could Be Ayahuasca: “I don’t believe plant medicines by themselves,” Suzy says. “I believe they show you, they kick the door open, but you have to come back and actually do the integration work. Do the real life work like the amends, just because you've done the thing you need to apologize for.”

Who Am I? Finding Spirituality by Disrupting Tradition with Abdul Hayy L. Holdijk : 710
00:54:18

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, Dave interviews a special guest while in Oman, south of Dubai. Abdul Hayy Lammert Holdijk shares his profound life story of adventure, spirituality seeking, questioning tradition and teaching others. 

Born in Holland, Abdul lived in Germany and attended universities in the U.S. and London. His travels as a young man took him to Sri Lanka, Beirut, and Damascus, where he found his “home” in a mosque with a Sufi sheikh who spoke English.

He has been a follower of a Sufi path for the past 40 years, studying religion and consciousness with a hefty dose of pragmatism. Abdul taught at the American University in Beirut for several years, and then at the American University in Cairo for 35.

“Almost all what we would call the mystical traditions are embedded in an Orthodox tradition,” Abdul says. “And that has a reason. Religion is like a shell, like a Walnut. It's rigid, it's inflexible, but it protects what's inside. And the inside is the mystical tradition. It's what gives meaning and flavor and nourishment. And if you had the inside without the shell, it would just simply flow away. It would not survive.”

“One of the first things I read about Zen Buddhism that appealed to me was Burn the Sutras,” he continues. “It's only later that I understood, you go to have sutras to burn, right? And so the tradition are the sutras and yes, the inner tradition does burn that rigidity, but it doesn't burn it completely. Because the tradition provides the way, kind of resistance to your ego. And the ego is persistent.” 

Abdul also founded the Egyptian Society of Homeopathy and teaches courses to other international homeopathy organizations.

He lectures on topics including the Enneagram, Shadow Work, Voice Dialogue, Love, Dream interpretation, Jekyll and Hyde, Hayy Ibn Yaqzan, and a wide range of other topics related to consciousness and personality development. He also leads spiritual retreats in Lebanon, Egypt, Oman, and the surrounding region.

Emotion Commotion in Trying Times: Showing Up to Pain & Accepting What Is – Susan David, Ph.D., with Dave Asprey : 709
01:06:11

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’m excited for you to hear from my guest Susan David, Ph.D., who knows all about emotions and what to do with them. Susan challenges the prevailing attitude that we should “fix” our difficult emotions through positive thinking and chasing happiness. Instead, she teaches people how to thrive in an uncertain world.

After some hard-charging months focused on the science of coronavirus, and how to stay physically well and financially afloat during the pandemic, it’s time to put some attention on our emotional health.

“Fundamentally, the way we deal with our inner world drives everything,” Susan says. “It drives how we love and come to our relationships, how we live, how we parent and how we lead.”

Susan is an award-winning Harvard Medical School psychologist. Her bestselling book, “Emotional Agility: Get Unstuck, Embrace Change, and Thrive in Work and Life” is based on 20 years of research and describes the psychological skills critical to thriving in times of uncertainty and change.

“At its most basic level emotional agility is about the capacity to be with ourselves,” Susan explains. “That includes our difficult thoughts and emotions and stories and past experiences in a way that's compassionate and curious and that doesn't hold us back from being the people that we most want to be. Because often we get stuck in our thoughts, our emotions and our stories, and we aren't living in a way that's intentional and values congruent and so it's about these different aspects.”

And whether we’re caught in a brooding trap or bottling up our emotions, it takes work to unpack what we’re feeling. 

“For people to be healthy with themselves, with the inner worlds, these are not soft skills,” Susan says. “These are the most fundamental skills that we can have as human beings.”

So listen on to find out why trying to control what is uncontrollable wreaks havoc on our emotional health and what you can do to improve your inner landscape in spite of the world’s turmoil.

Swapping Out Your Old Plasma Slows Aging & Alzheimer’s – Dr. David Haase with Dave Asprey : 708
01:07:12

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, we’re honoring Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month. My guest is the very curious physician, Dr. David Haase. He has a different perspective on Alzheimer’s prevention and treatment—he wants to be a saver of widsom.

He’s also a teacher, entrepreneur and innovator deeply committed to maximizing wellness for everyone, keeping longevity in mind.

He’s considered a Systems Medicine pioneer because of his approach to health and healing. He's Vanderbilt- and Mayo Clinic-trained and double-board certified in Family Medicine and Integrative Holistic Medicine,

Dr. Haase integrates science, philosophy and data to reveal new possibilities for creating health, optimizing human performance, and reversing cognitive decline.

“I call Alzheimer's the failure of our success,” Dr. Haase says. “We've actually done a good job of decreasing heart disease deaths and cancer deaths, and the end-of-stage or end-of-life chronic degenerative diseases and many other categories, but people are living longer, so that we're actually having more opportunities to develop late stage Alzheimer's disease.”

The exchange of blood plasma is showing the most promise in slowing cognitive decline. In a recent study, patients’ memory and executive function actually improved. Even more promising is that you can take action now--before any brain changes occur.

“The quality of your plasma reflects the quality of your living,” Dr. Haase says. “You can dramatically change your plasma here and today by the choices you make and the environment you place your body in.”

The Rock Star Scientist of Alzheimer’s on How to Stop Neuroinflammation – Dr. Rudolph Tanzi with Dave Asprey : 707
00:50:16

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, we’re honoring Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month with Dr. Rudolph Tanzi. He’s a renowned microbiologist who has researched, studied, and written about Alzheimer’s disease for nearly 40 years. Along the way, he’s discovered several Alzheimer’s disease genes, including all three early-onset familial Alzheimer’s genes.

He’s also developing therapies for treating and preventing Alzheimer’s disease using human mini-brain organoid models of the disease and working to identify novel genes associated with Alzheimer’s and autism spectrum disorders.

“You're trying to put out a forest fire by blowing out the match,” Dr. Tanzi says. “The forest fire's neuroinflammation. These early genes taught us about the triggers, the matches, the brush fires. It's too late to stamp those out. But now, all the newest Alzheimer's genes we're finding, over a dozen of them, tell us how to stop neuroinflammation.”

Today you’re going to learn about brand new research that is upending what we think we know about Alzheimer’s and how we’ve been treating the symptoms of the disease for decades.

Blood Sugar is the Power Energy in Your Video Game Life – Dr. Molly Maloof with Dave Asprey : 706
00:57:47

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I got to talk with Dr. Molly Maloof about why she wants to bring continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) to the masses and how it can optimize nutrition and health. 

CGM is the ultimate lifestyle biomarker. “I don't think CGM should be a prescription device,” Dr, Molly says.  “I think the information about your body should not be behind a pharmacist's desk. It's absurd that you have to ask your doctor for information about yourself.”

Her goal is to maximize human potential by radically extending human health span through personal health technologies, scientific wellness and educational media. Dr. Molly teaches a course at Stanford University on strategies for extending health span for longer lifespan. Her concierge medical practice is oriented around optimizing health and improving mitochondrial function. 

“It is not acceptable that we are getting so sick so young and we need to ask ourselves ‘what are all the possible causes,’ ” she says. “A lot of it does have to do with how we eat, how we live, how we breathe.” EMFs are in the mix, too.

Dr. Molly’s aim is to redesign the healthcare system by reducing medicine prescriptions and implementing healthy lifestyle principles, like fasting.

“We're designed to be fasting most of the time,” she says. “We're not designed to be eating all the time, We have the genetics of scarcity and so abundance is actually damaging to health. Food is fundamental to health. If your food is wrong, your fuel is wrong, you're screwed.”

She’s a passionate evangelist, empowering advocate and visionary futurist who is pioneering new approaches to personal health. “This is the whole crux of what biohacking is about, right? Like having to hack a system because it won't give you what you want, why can't people learn about their bodies? What's wrong with that?”

How Blood Flow Restriction Can Revolutionize Your Fitness – Dr. Jim Stray-Gundersen with Dave Asprey : 705
01:01:58

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, Dr. Jim Stray-Gundersen talks with me about blood flow restriction (BFR) and its practical application for sports, rehabilitation and health conditions. BFR training has broad effectsand benefits– across your biology. 

“In 20 minutes, you can get more or less a full body workout and that's all you need on a daily basis,” he says. “It's not just about building big muscles, it's about essentially upgrading all the systems that are involved in exercise.”

Dr. Jim is co-founder and chief medical officer of B Strong, the founder of the S-G Performance Medicine Center, and the Sports Science Advisor for the US Ski and Snowboard Association. 

As a physician, researcher and professor, he’s treated thousands of patients and authored thousands of articles over a career spanning more than 40 years. He has extensive experience in the area of sports physiology and has worked with Olympic athletes in various disciplines. 

“The lessons that are learned from elite sport can be translated into helping the everyday population live healthier and better lives,” he says.

We go all in on his study and research of altitude training, local and systemic hypoxia, growth hormones, and metabolic crisis--and what all of this has to do with BFR.

Considered a world-renowned expert in blood flow restriction training, Dr. Jim believes that BFR will revolutionize training and rehabilitation everywhere. Listen on to find out how.

Transform Your Indoors with Human Compatible™ Lighting – Robert Soler & Dave Asprey Hack LEDs : 704
01:04:32

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is Robert Soler, who researches, engineers and designs lighting systems that work best for the human brain and body. We get right into the biology of lighting and why LED lighting has been your No. 1 enemy indoors for years.

As a subject-matter expert for NASA's Circadian Lighting System onboard the International Space Station, Robert helped design the first LED light for use there. He has since co-founded a NASA spin-off company to bring the same technology to the general public. He’s now vice president of Human Biological Technologies and Research at Biological Innovation and Optimization Systems (BIOS). 

Robert and the BIOS team set out to create better lighting to improve human sleep patterns, cognitive function and general health. Their research on circadian lights has been proven to provide benefits in alertness, jet lag, athlete performance, twilight, seasonality, skin response, photoreception, and more.

BIOS is the only truly circadian lighting developed for humans to mimic natural sunlight. “The whole premise is brighter days, darker nights,” Robert says.

BIOS and my company TrueLight have partnered to launch the first consumer lightbulb that works with your circadian rhythm, not against it. We’ve even captured exciting new technology: “We took out the bad blue and re-appropriated into the good blue region, giving those ‘sky blue’ signals that we need and getting rid of the bad blue in the shorter wavelengths,” Robert says.

Listen on to learn how key photoreceptors drive your circadian rhythms, and how this new bulb’s human compatibility can revolutionize your light and your life.

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is Dr. Joe Dispenza. He teaches people how to rewire their brains and recondition their bodies to make lasting changes. His work combines neuroscience, epigenetics, and quantum physics to explore the science behind spontaneous remissions and healing. 

“I talk about how the mind and body are connected and how we can begin to change who we are and that we're not hardwired to be a certain way for the rest of our lives, and we're not doomed by our genes,” Dr. Joe says. “In fact, we're marvels of adaptability and change.”

He’s an international lecturer, researcher, corporate consultant, author, and educator.

In his advanced workshops around the world, he has partnered with other scientists to perform extensive research on the effects of meditation, including epigenetic testing, brain mapping with electroencephalograms (EEGs), and individual energy field testing with a gas discharge visualization (GDV) machine. His research also includes measuring heart coherence with HeartMath monitors.

“I think there's power in numbers,” Dr. Joe says. “The higher the amplitude, the higher the energy. And if you get enough people thinking the same way, feeling the same way, doing the same things, and you can get and train them into that frequency.” That’s where the magic of healing and transformation happens.”

In a simple, inspiring, and compassionate way, Dr. Joe shows people how they can take their new knowledge to help heal illnesses, chronic conditions and diseases, and also evolve their consciousness. 

“People are beginning to understand that it is more possible when see the evidence in front of them,” Dr. Joe says. “And that's a footprint in consciousness. And so we have evidence in the scientific world, we have evidence in testimony, and I think evidence is the loudest voice.”

However you’re managing the current global pandemic, you have an opportunity to look within, grow, learn and even speed up your belief in what’s possible. 

“So keep doing the work,” Dr. Joe says. “Keep working on yourself. Keep applying it. Try it out. Be a scientist in your life. Experiment. Make it fun. Open up and see if you can begin to produce effects in your life and when you do pay attention to what you did and do it again until you get really good at it.”

Design Your Own 'Mindapps' to Expand Your Smarts & Creativity – Thomas Roberts, Ph.D., with Dave Asprey : 702
01:03:32

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is Thomas Roberts, Ph.D., who’s devoted a nearly 50-year career to the study of psychedelics. Tom has developed “mind design” technologies and practices he calls mindapps.

Just like writing and installing apps in our electronic devices, we can construct “mindapps” and install them in our brain-mind complex, he says.  And just like digital apps add capabilities to our devices, mindapps can expand our intellectual capacity and creative abilities. 

Tom’s mindapps also offer benefits for artistic performance, mystical and spiritual experience, and scientific research by improving creativity, open-mindedness, problem solving, and inner-brain connections—the ultimate performance hacking!

“There are things we can install in our brain/mind complex that allow it to do new things and to do things more strongly,” Tom says. “I'm not saying that a mindapp is like artificial intelligence in electronical sense. I'm just taking that idea and transferring it over to things. Now, my favorite, of course, is psychedelics, but it includes brain stimulation, hypnosis, breathing techniques, biofeedback, chanting, yoga, hypnosis, on and on. All of these are mindapps that we can install and use our brain/mind complex in different ways.”

We’re intentionally redesigning our own minds, he explains, and lays it all out in his most recent book: Mindapps: Multistate Theory and Tools for Mind Design. We talk about mindapps and how they connect to consciousness and psychedelic science.

Tom is a professor emeritus of educational psychology at Northern Illinois University and a former visiting scientist at Johns Hopkins, He’s presented around the world on consciousness and psychedelic science. For 32 years, he taught Foundations of Psychedelic Studies, which was the world’s first university-cataloged psychedelic course.

Facts vs. Experience: How Science May Be Alienating Consciousness – Philip Goff, Ph.D., with Dave Asprey : 701
00:59:32

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is leading philosopher and consciousness researcher Philip Goff, Ph.D. He studies how to integrate consciousness into our scientific worldview and how consciousness blends with our general theory of reality. “Consciousness is everywhere,” he says.

His approach to consciousness is “a very general framework for bringing together what we know about ourselves from the inside with what science tells us about the body and the brain from the outside to bring them together in a single integrated picture of reality.”

“All we mean by consciousness here is subjective experience, pleasure, pain, visual or auditory experiences and so human experience is incredibly rich and sophisticated,” says Philip, who teaches at Durham University in England. “This is the result of millions of years of evolution by natural selection.”

​In his new book “Galileo's Error: Foundations for a New Science of Consciousness,” he goes all the back to the foundations of the scientific revolution, when Galileo's decided to set consciousness outside of the domain of science. 

Philip suggests that we need to rethink what science is in order to solve the problem of consciousness and offers up panpsychism as a radically new picture of human consciousness.

“So that's the idea that basic building blocks have some kind of very rudimentary conscious experience," Philip says. “But it doesn't mean every random arrangement of those particles of those building blocks is conscious. It doesn't mean that your cup of coffee is conscious. It just means that your cup of coffee is made up of little things that are conscious.”

Downturn Turnaround: How to Navigate the Economic Headwinds of Covid-19 – Jay Abraham with Dave Asprey : 700
00:47:13

If you’re worried about the state of your finances, then this is the Bulletproof Radio episode you must listen to. Top executive coach, marketing expert, and $21.7 Billion Dollar Man—Jay Abraham—joins Dave for a candid discussion about financial health. Especially as the Covid-19 pandemic has blown apart the economy.

“Everyone is shell-shocked,” Jay says. “Even big companies are out of money.”

As Founder and CEO of The Abraham Group, Inc. (Los Angeles, California), Jay has dealt with virtually every type of business scenario and issue. He has studied, and solved, almost every type of business question, challenge and opportunity. He’s spent his entire career solving complex problems and fixing underperforming businesses. 

“I have a broad perspective,” Jay says. “I've been trained to find opportunity at adversity.”

His forte, which is the ability to think “way outside the box” while thinking “way inside the box” too, is to prepare for multiple potential scenarios. This has enabled him to find (and successfully implement) creative, pre-emptive solutions in order to generate high-performance results. You can, too, even in this incredibly tough business environment. 

“You start with nonthreatening, no-risk things, because every day, you could be putting into play one small revenue activity that can start monetizing for you,” Jay says. “They don't all have to be winners and they don't have to be big.”

This episode is full of useful and practical ways you can do something about your current financial situation. The opportunities are there if you let yourself think in new ways.

“What you can do from the base of what's happened is transcendent,” Jay says. “It's extraordinary if you allow yourself to transcend the limitations of how you have seen yourself—whether you're a displaced employee, whether you're a restauranteur, whether you're an entrepreneur whose business has faltered, or whether you're one that's doing okay.”

Meat, Interrupted: How Radical Transparency is Saving Our Bacon – Grass Roots Farmers' Cooperative with Dave Asprey : 699
01:04:44

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’ve invited two guests to talk about a different perspective on the current disruptions in the U.S. meat supply. Covid-19 has turned a spotlight on problems within industrial meat processing. But there’s another way that keeps workers safe and product quality high for consumers. 

There are small-scale farmers and meat processors providing total integrity throughout the value chain. Preserving natural ecosystems, respecting animals, and protecting the environment are simply the way they do business. Plus, they’ve got science on their side proving why grass-fed, pasture-raised livestock is both the healthiest—and most humane—meat choice.

Cody Hopkins is a physicist who decided to be a farmer, then founded Grass Roots Farmers’ Cooperative in Arkansas and serves as its CEO. He and the Grass Roots partner farms are changing the way meat is produced and consumed across the U.S. He’s focused on regenerative agriculture, animal welfare, sustainability and blockchain technology.

“There is a growing awareness of the vulnerability of our meat supply chain, especially at the processing level,” Cody says. “When one company or one plant produces 130 million servings every week, it's producing 5% of the country's pork. That is a scary position to be in and I think people are really waking up to that right now.”

Andy Shaw, CEO of Cypress Valley Meat Company in Arkansas, has more than 20 years of experience in all aspects of meat processing. He oversees multiple USDA-inspected processing plants that service Grass Roots, major retailers and farmers, and private label products for renowned restaurants. 

“When you look at what people have said in the past of being too big to fail, we're seeing quite the opposite now,” Andy says. “I think they're [industrial meat processing plants] too big to stay continually in motion while all this is going on. When you’ve got that many employees concentrated in one location, it's almost impossible to keep everybody healthy and at work. We're seeing the repercussions of having a centralized food system right now.”

Small Tweaks Add Up To Big Health Wins – Max Lugavere with Dave Asprey : 698
00:52:59

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest today is Max Lugavere, a filmmaker, health and science journalist, and New York Times best-selling author. His mom’s early-onset dementia propelled him to seek out top scientists and doctors around the world. He made the connection to food in his first book “Genius Foods.” And realizing the needs of the body and brain don’t stop at food, he’s back with a new take on health with “The Genius Life.” 

Max looked into global research on circadian biology, psychology, dementia prevention, cognitive optimization and exercise physiology. He’s taken all that knowledge and distilled it into valuable suggestions. “All it takes for most people are a few simple insights and a few simple tips to really turn things around in a powerful way,” Max says.

We talk about hacks you can start incorporating into your life right away to build up your physical and mental health resilience.

“The link between exercise and mental health really, it can't be overstated,” Max says. “And when I'm home for an extended period of time, it really is a challenge mentally. I think this is actually one of the topics that is being under-covered in terms of the media, what this social distancing collectively is doing for our mental health. So, anything that we can do to fortify our mental health during this time is crucial.”

Your Ultimate Guide to Ozone Therapy – Dr. Robert Rowen with Dave Asprey : 697
01:15:33

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, Dr. Robert Rowen shares more than three decades of knowledge working with ozone therapy. Ozone is something that is missing from our conversation about how to stay healthy, especially when things are not healthy out there.

Ozone therapy has been used for more than a century and is known for improving the flow properties of blood, delivery and utilization of oxygen, and enhancing a body's immune system, among other benefits. 

Dr. Rowen has established himself as a global leader in integrative/alternative medicine and is internationally known for his clinical practice and teaching in oxidation medicine. I previously had him on episode #352 to talk about how he successfully treated Ebola patients in Africa with ozone therapy.

I wanted Dr. Rowen back on the show now because of his extensive expertise. “There’s hydrogen peroxide, ozone, ultraviolet, and intravenous Vitamin C,” he says. “These all belong to a family of therapies commonly referred to as oxidative medicine. And it is a really natural therapy, most people don't realize that. Our immune cells (white blood cells) go after infection by making oxidants and tossing them at the invader. Now, if this didn't work, we wouldn't be here. And the invaders have never been able to get away from this.”

Dr. Rowen also recently published a paper in the Journal of Infectious Diseases and Epidemiology to bring attention to ozone therapy as a novel treatment for conventionally untreatable viral illnesses, such as coronavirus.

“Ozone is reducing inflammation, modulating inflammation, delivering more oxygen, improving mitochondrial oxygen consumption, and ozone itself is toxic, so it kills microorganisms,” he says.

Ozone therapy has stood the test of time in my life and for the last 100 years, it's the real deal. Listen on for easy explanations and useful information you can use today.

Hacking Enlightenment in 7 Steps: The Dharma and Next-Gen of Neuroscience – Rick Hanson, Ph.D., with Dave Asprey : 696
01:08:38

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest, Rick Hanson, Ph.D., is a neuropsychologist, teacher, and speaker. He’s also a New York Times best-selling author of five books that explore topics like neuroscience, clinical psychology, and positive neuroplasticity.

I’ve asked Rick back to the show to discuss his new book, “Neurodharma: New Science, Ancient Wisdom, and Seven Practices of the Highest Happiness.” We cover Rick’s seven practices for strengthening the neural circuitry of profound contentment and inner peace based on cutting-edge brain science. These qualities offer essential support in everyday life while at the same time support the exploration of the most radical reaches of human consciousness. If it sounds daunting, it’s absolutely not! Rick relies on methods and prefers to be in the trenches.

“These are seven ways of being that are perfected in enlightenment,” Rick says. “And then in effect, reverse engineering those seven ways of being so that we can develop them inside ourselves, literally hardwired into our own brain.”

He gives us hope while also recognizing the challenges of modern life: “Our deepest nature in fact has already awakened,” he says. “And yet it's really difficult to rest in that true nature for more than a few seconds in a row given the brain's survival biases and then the ways that modern culture floods us and distracts us.” … “It’s easy to lose sight of the peaks of human potential.”

Rick is a Senior Fellow of UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center. He’s lectured at NASA, Google, Oxford, and Harvard, and taught in meditation centers worldwide. Considered an expert on positive neuroplasticity, his work has been featured on the BBC, CBS, NPR, and other major media. 

Rick doesn’t use any jargon or pep talks, but instead reaches into neuroscience while also sharing his own journey of practice (he’s been meditating for 46 years!) He teaches and informs through stories, guided meditations, examples and applications. You’ll find this episode pragmatic and practical.

Coronavirus Bonus: The Anti-Inflammatory Effect of Stem Cells – Dr. Harry Adelson with Dave Asprey : 695
00:23:55

In this bonus episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is Harry Adelson, N.D., one of the early adopters of using stem cells for the treatment of chronic musculoskeletal pain. I asked him to come in for this special short podcast because I wanted to talk specifically about immune function and stem cells, and get thoughts from one of the leaders in the field on stem cells, and Covid-19, and viruses, and immunity. 

DISCLAIMER: Dr. Harry Adelson wishes to be clear that he does not treat COVID-19 under any circumstance, with stem cells or anything else. He leaves that to the infectious disease specialists.

Dr. Adelson founded Docere Clinics, in Park City, Utah, in 2002 where he practiced Regenerative Injection Therapy until 2010. Since then, he's been treating exclusively musculoskeletal pain conditions using stem cells. He has performed over 6,000 stem cell procedures, putting him solidly among the most experienced in the world.

We discuss stem cells and the connections to inflammation from viruses specifically. “Of the modalities that are being studied, stem-cell therapy actually potentially shows the most promise,” Dr. Adelson says. Listen on to learn more about the science behind how stem cells work in the body and their systemic anti-inflammation effect.

00:54:53

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is a widely recognized world expert in memory improvement, brain optimization and accelerated learning. Jim Kwik has poured his life’s work into making people limitless.

“The No. 1 capability to cultivate today is learning,” Jim says. “If you learn how to learn, you can apply that towards everything. You can grant all of your own learning wishes.”

How Kindness and Empathy Will Reset and Reshape A Better World: Jamil Zaki, Ph.D., with Dave Asprey : 694
01:11:11

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is Jamil Zaki, Ph.D., a professor of psychology at Stanford University and the director of the Stanford Social Neuroscience Lab. Our conversation explores kindness, empathy, and compassion. You’ll find out the surprising ways people carry these traits into their personal lives and their broader social groups and communitites.  

In a stack rank, kindness wins: “So kindness is, obviously, I think the most important for us as a collective,” Jamil says. “We need to cooperate, we need to work together, and that's whether you're in a family or a company or a culture.”

Jamil has presented and written extensively about kindness and empathy, with featured articles in the New York Times, the Washington PostThe New Yorker, and the Atlantic and many more publications and media outlets. He’s the author of the book: “The War for Kindness: Building Empathy in a Fractured World.”

Using tools from psychology and neuroscience, he gives us a totally new understanding empathy by examining how empathy works and how people can learn to empathize more effectively. 

Empathy has been thought of as a hardwired trait—as in you either have it or you don’t. But Jamil says it’s a learnable skill that can be taught, strengthened and adapted to the modern world. And we need that more than ever in the current calamity of Covid-19. “That sense of common humanity and common vulnerability can really actually ignite massive amounts of empathy,” he says.

Listen on to learn how to bring more empathy and kindness into your life now and how to shape it for the future.

Tech Billionaires vs. The COVID-19 Pandemic: Dave Asprey hosts Tech Journalist Kara Swisher : 693
00:55:55

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is one of the most revered tech journalists in the U.S. technology space. Kara Swisher is a contributing writer to the New York Times Opinion section and appears weekly on NBC. We get into tech impacts, human downgrading, and how Covid-19 has created shifts and opportunities in the tech community.

She’s executive producer of the Code Conference, an annual event that brings together a global community of the biggest tech names in the business to explore current and future impact of digital technology. She also hosts the podcast Recode: Decode and co-hosts the podcast Pivot. Both shows dive into many aspects of the tech world with sharp insight.

Kara’s experience in tech spans nearly 30 years where she’s been watching it unfold—in all its glory and ugliness. She’s tackled tough topics and raised hard questions within the industry. A few things we talk about in this episode:

  • Big tech: “I still feel like this idea that we need these big giant tech companies that control everything is a real problem for innovation,” she says. “I've always thought the way we get to any solution to anything is a diversity of opinion, a diversity of efforts, a diversity of small companies being on a plane where they can compete with larger companies.”


  • Tech Diversity: “But you're still a rare being, being a woman or a person of color running or being in a significant position of power at a tech company,” she says.


  • Tech Billionaire Philanthropy: “Where's the accountability?” she says. “Where's the decision making as a society? Where's all of us deciding together what we want rather than a small group of people, who may or may not have good motives.”


  • Tech’s Space Roots: “You're either a Star Trek person or a Star Wars person. I would like to be a Star Trek person, but I fear we live in a Star Wars universe.”

You Are Enough! Find Your Authentic State with Panache Desai and Dave Asprey : 692
01:05:52

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’m welcoming a guest who has a unique power of insight and a gift of energetic transformation. Panache Desai helps people to “be enough” and break free from suffering and limitation on every level. He helps foster a deeper understanding of who they are, and guides them into greater states of connection, collaboration, and love.


“When you're authentically being yourself, you are peaceful,” he says. “When you're tapped into that enlightened consciousness that you are, you are peaceful. This is how you know you are connected to you.”


He's has been interviewed by Oprah Winfrey on her wildly popular SuperSoul Sunday show. He’s also collaborated alongside Deepak Chopra, and steps in for Rev. Michael Beckwith at the Agape International Spiritual Center.


In his new book, You Are Enough: Revealing the Soul to Discover Your Power, Potential, and Possibility, he offers a persuasive and powerful approach to meet the challenges of the modern moment and heal the fractured self it produces.


“If we're not feeling like we're enough, we're sending all of those signals through the body,” Panache says. “We're creating a biology of not being enough, and then we're creating a reality of not being enough. And so, the fundamental shift that we have to go through is building from a foundation of being enough because there's a superpower that we tap into from that place.”

Ozone Therapy: Strengthen Your Immunity and Combat Viruses - Dave Asprey Talks with Dr. Frank Shallenberger : 691
00:53:48

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, Dr. Frank Shallenberger returns to the show with step-by-step ways to boost your innate immune system and keep viruses at bay. “You'll never get over any kind of infection if you don't have an immune system to eventually take charge,” he says.


Dr. Shallenberger has been a practicing physician for nearly 50 years, both in the fields of conventional medicine and alternative/homeopathic/integrative medicine. He’s revolutionized the practice of anti-aging and preventive medicine by developing a patented method to measure mitochondrial function, metabolism, and oxygen utilization. 


He’s also someone who knows more than you might expect on how viruses operate inside the body and what you can do about almost any virus in the body. He offers up a unique protocol that includes Vitamins A, C and D, zinc, nebulized hydrogen peroxide, and ozone. “One of the things I love most about ozone is that it complements everything,” he says. 


Considered the leading expert of medical ozone therapy in the United States, Dr. Shallenberger is best known for his research involving the use of ozone therapy for immune-related disorders. “What's cool about ozone is that it signals all kinds of systems to do all kinds of things,” he says. “And so, that's why we can use it in so many different areas.”


Listen on for step-by-step tips and guidelines on how to follow the protocol safety. And there may just be a few mushrooms thrown in for good measure.

Covid-19 Turns Inflammation from Protective to Predatory – Dave Asprey with Dr. David Liepert : 690
01:00:01

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I get into inflammatory responses and the lessons pain teaches us with my guest, Dr. David Liepert. 


“COVID is doing damage by overwhelming us and causing uncontrolled inflammation,” he says. “The inflammatory response to COVID is actually somewhat protective. The question is, at what point does it become counter-protective, or even counterproductive, or even producing injury? The same thing is true systemically, that, for instance, social distancing and quarantine are kind of a social form of inflammation.”


“Basically, uncontrolled inflammation is another way to think of a cytokine storm,” he says. “Cytokines are meant to be the solution, but uncontrolled, they literally become the thing that's killing us, rather than helping us get better.”


Dr. Liepert a physician with a broad range of expertise in critical care, specialty anesthesiology, and quality improvement and assessment programs within Canada’s healthcare system. He’s dedicated much of his professional work to helping patients find solutions to chronic pain. 


He also serves as chief medical officer and advisor to several companies leading development and discoveries for mobile health and wellness monitoring, and AI solutions.


I asked him to talk more about how this type of virus (Covid-19) is bringing our health systems down, not just us individually.


“My one big struggle with academic medicine and the way it responds to situations like this is, academic medicine assumes we know what questions to ask,” Dr. Liepert says. “And if we don't even know what question to ask, we're never going to find the right answer.”

A Five-Step Formula to Make Money and a Difference – Lisa Sasevich : 689
00:56:12

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, we’re changing up the pace and pausing the coronavirus hustle and flow. I’m going to ask that you take a breath, look around your shelter-in-place environment and really see what matters most to you.


Ask yourself, “What if I could feel like I'm making a difference all the time and be paid for that?” My guest Lisa Sasevich believes that inside of every one of us is a feeling that just won’t go away—an internal knowing that we are “meant for more.” 


She had that feeling and used it to propel herself into a life of abundance and contribution. She went from being fired from her dream job the night before Christmas Eve, to building a home-based business that generated over $40 million dollars in sales.


You may have some unexpected downtime right now, or be grappling with new family, work and financial realities during this coronavirus pandemic. Lisa’s going to present you with tools you can use and steps you can take right now to discover and own your unique value. 


She’s also going to reframe your thoughts around profits and income.


“Profits means money to us in business, right?” she says. “The money left over after we pay our expenses. But I want to expand it. When I look at the money that my company makes, I see a bunch of humans that we helped. That's what it looks like to me.”


“And the kind of income we're talking about is the kind of income that uses your ability to help people with what you already know,” Lisa says. “So, there's a profit in the feeling of fulfillment, the knowing that you're making a difference.”

Part 2-Ripple Effects of the Covid-19 Pandemic That We’re Ignoring: DNA Impacts with Mansoor Mohammed, Ph.D. : 688
00:51:03

This episode of Bulletproof Radio is part two of a special two-part series. (Catch part one here.) There was a lot to discuss about Covid-19 with Mansoor Mohammed, Ph.D., president and chief scientific officer of The DNA Company. He’s widely regarded as a pioneer in medical genomics.


In part two, we talk about specific genes that make you prone to exaggerated inflammatory viral responses and respiratory problems. The DNA Company actually knows this. In fact, Mansoor and I had a conversation about this long before Covid-19 existed. 


We again get scienc-y about DNA and coronavirus, but we explain it all along the way in simple terms. We break down the science into manageble pieces that you can use today. Especially when it comes to inflammation, which is one of the pandemic ripple effects.


“Ultimately the real knockout punch is coming from something called cytokine storms, which is just a sexy word of seeing a deregulated hyped-up, armed-up inflammatory response,” Mansoor says.


Whether you have access to your genetic information or not, this episode offers something for everyone to make sure this inflammatory thing doesn't hit you.


We look at stacking Selenium, Zinc, D3, Vitamin C and NAC, as well as balancing your methylation. However, this is just a start. 


Buckle up to learn a lot more!

Part 1-Ripple Effects of the Covid-19 Pandemic That We’re Ignoring: DNA Impacts with Mansoor Mohammed, Ph.D : 687
00:47:51

This episode of Bulletproof Radio is part one of a special two-part series. There was a lot to discuss about Covid-19 with Mansoor Mohammed, Ph.D., president and chief scientific officer of The DNA Company.

Today’s guest is widely regarded as a pioneer in medical genomics and has been the recipient of multiple academic and industry awards. He’s the holder of several patents in the general fields of molecular diagnostics and genomics research. Now you might think that we’re going to get into something scienc-y about DNA and coronavirus—and we are, but there’s so much more to consider. 

For example, how DNA impacts your ability to fight Covid-19 and the vast ripple effect this pandemic is having across the world. There’s also an emotional effect, secondary to the pandemic, that very few people are talking about in any meaningful way.

Hardcore stress, anxiety, social isolation, employment and education disruption, and safety and security concerns are moving in waves across the world. Cortisol levels are up, inflammation is triggered, circadian rhythms are off, eating habits are upset—all making for a swirling storm of physical and mental health concerns beyond having the actual virus. For all of us.

And while it seems the Covid-19 illness doesn’t seem to be affecting youth as much as adults, we may be “leaving the youth out of the equation,” says Mansoor. “But those youth are equally likely to be affected by the emotional discord of seeing mom and dad scared, mom and dad fighting, parents worried, and they may not have the barometers by which to filter all of the stress that's societally going on.”

Turns out there’s a genetic link to how we process trauma. A percentage of our youth have a “profound genomic makeup that significantly predisposes them to a much more anxiety based, much more war-based response to what's going on,” Mansoor says. Adults are not immune, either. I had Mansoor check my own DNA; listen on to what he found.

“We're performing a societal experiment right now,” Mansoor continues. “And we need to be aware of this and we need to be aware of the multitude of effects this is going to have—not just acute viral infection and acute hospitalization. There are broader effects here that we need to speak of.”

Overcoming Massive Adversity with Little Mind Hacks – Amy Purdy : 686
01:16:05

This is a special—and slightly longer—episode of Bulletproof Radio you don’t want to miss. My guest has defied incredible odds throughout her life to accomplish some extraordinary things. 

Amy Purdy follows a road of her own making—as a motivational speaker, a New York Times best-selling author, a model, dancer and actress—and also the most decorated American Paralympic snowboarder in history.

She toured the United States with Oprah Winfrey, speaking to stadiums of people about her life story of losing both her legs at 19 while teaching others about resilience and inspiring them to follow their dreams.

Her life took another turn in 2019—this time a severe health setback. We’re going to talk about what happened and how she hacked her body and mind through her recovery.

When it comes to excruciating pain, adversity, and continually moving forward, Amy has worked through it all with strength and grace.

  • Perseverance: “Even when I survived, I think, it made me have to really dig deep and figure out, okay, there's certain things I can change, there's certain things I can't, so I decided to really focus on the things that I could change, I decided to focus on what I could do.”


  • Hope: “I still wanted to live a great life. I was still me, I very much so still felt like me. I'm the same person, the same drive, the same aspirations. I wanted to travel, I wanted to snowboard all over the world. I still wanted to do all of that. I just now had to figure out how, and I had to get creative to find a way.”


  • Positivity: “It didn't feel good to have people feel sorry for me. And so I knew that I didn't want to feel sorry for myself. I thought ‘that's a bad spot to be in.’ ”


  • Mindset: “One major thing that I did was I got really good at compartmentalizing because I was dealing with losing my legs, losing my kidney function and needing a kidney transplant and then losing part of my hearing as well, all at the same time.”


  • Focus: “When I think of all my accomplishments, the things that I've done in my life, I get very hyper-focused. I kind of shut everything else away and just focus on what needs to be taken care of.”


  • Healing: “I started this whole new journey that I'm on of fighting to get back. … I realize the doctors have done what they can. Now it's up to my body to do the rest and how can I support my body to not just heal but literally do more than that, right? Like grow new connections, create new pathways.”

Parenting Through the New Norm: Tips for Connecting with Your Kids During Stressful Times – Dr. Stewart Friedman : 685
00:52:03

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is a leading voice for change in social and corporate policy to bring greater harmony between work and the rest of life—especially for parents.

Stewart Friedman currently is an organizational psychologist and professor of management practice at the Wharton School. He’s an award-winning professor and bestselling author who founded Wharton’s Leadership Program and its Work/Life Integration Project nearly 30 years ago. 

Flexibility is a big part of that integration, and the timing couldn’t be better. The realities of working at home—with kids—is settling in for many families

A simple acknowledgement of “I'm a human being beyond the work exchange that we're doing right now, and so are you, so let's deal with that,” is necessary, Stew says. “We're being forced to do that now and I think that that's helping everybody. It does require, as I say, some adjustment and flexibility, but I think if you negotiate it just a bit up front it makes everything a lot easier.”

In his new book, “Parents Who Lead: The Leadership Approach You Need to Parent with Purpose, Fuel Your Career, and Create a Richer Life,” parents learn how to apply leadership principles to their parenting style and drive values in ways that benefits the whole family. In our discussion, Stew gives great tips on how parents can uplevel their parenting game, especially during this time when coronavirus is forcing so many of you to make changes to your home and family life.

Parents who lead are those who have a sense of what matters to them and they're figuring out, just as we all are, each day a new way to take a step in a direction that's closer and closer to that world that they see as a better tomorrow for them and the people that they care about,” Stew says.

How Virus Resistance Can Help You Live to 100 – Jamie Metzl : 684
00:43:21

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is Jamie Metzl, a leading futurist, geopolitical expert, science fiction novelist, media commentator and a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council. He served in the White House, State Department, and United Nations.

In 2019, he was appointed to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) expert advisory committee on developing global standards for the governance and oversight of human genome editing. Jamie’s work with the WHO and his background in international relations gives him a unique perspective on the coronavirus. 

It another great connection, his newest book “Hacking Darwin: Genetic Engineering and the Future of Humanity” leads us right into a discussion about genetic engineering to help fight viruses. “We like to imagine ourselves in harmony with nature, but we're at war with nature,” Jamie says. There are reasons to both fear and be excited about the possiblities of genetic engineering.

Jamie also provides advisory services to governments, businesses, and institutions about the best ways to understand, predict, and prepare for revolutionary and converging technological, social, and geopolitical change. The coronavirus pandemic set in motion an evolving series of crises around the world—from governance to health to economic and, finally, to political.

“We have a huge fight ahead of us,” Jamie says. “The world on the other side is going to be very different from what it is going in, but now's the time we need to be thinking about what we want that world to look like, and making sure that it's a world that reflects our best values.”

Going Beyond the Human Mind to Discover Your Infinite Potential – Deepak Chopra : 683
00:57:11

This episode of Bulletproof Radio is a special in-person podcast at the Milken Global Conference in Abu Dhabi with Deepak Chopra.

Deepak Chopra, M.D., FACP, is a world-renowned pioneer in integrative medicine and personal transformation. TIMEmagazine described him as “one of the top 100 heroes and icons of the century.” He’s been exploring the intersection of science and spirituality for decades. 

Immersed in the study and practice of meditation, Ayurveda and mind-body-soul connection, his teachings have greatly influenced our modern understanding of the self. His long scholarship and research of human consciousness has furthered our understanding of what’s real and what’s possible.

“In terms of human potential, metareality isn’t outer space but the pure, unbounded consciousness that lies at the source of the mind,” he says in our interview.

“Consciousness is the knowing element in every experience, whether it's perception, or mental, or emotional, or imagination,” Deepak continues. “Any sensation, any perception, any feeling, any thought is constantly bubbling out of consciousness. And we have constructed a physical universe out of it, which is brilliant, actually, because, in a way, humans are representing the infinite as this experience.”

We discuss what it means to be “beyond human” based on Deepak’s 90th book: Metahuman: Unleashing Your Infinite Potential. You’ll learn how to question reality, move past limitations constructed by your mind, and enter a new state of awareness. And when you realize a “reality without limits,” you’ll be able to realize your full human potential.

Viruses: The Ultimate Gene Therapy Machines – Liz Parrish : 682
00:59:32

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is known as "the woman who wants to genetically engineer you," and a leading voice for genetic cures.

Liz Parrish founded and serves as CEO of BioViva Sciences USA Inc., a bioinformatics company actively working to extend healthy lifespans using gene therapy. It’s looking specifically at how gene therapy works in humans and how regenerative genes work in human bodies. Its partner company, Integrative Health Systems, helps people get access to these technologies today.

A strong champion of progress and education for the advancement of gene therapy, Liz firmly supports our right and our ability to hack our own DNA.

And she definitely walks her talk: In 2015 she became the first person in the world to take dual gene therapies to treat aging. One of the ways was to use adeno-associated virus, called AAV.  “AAV doesn't essentially do what old gene therapy does,” she explains. “So, you don't get sick when you take it, because if you get sick then you're going to not uptake the genes. … And viruses are still the best gene delivery method there is. They get genes into the nucleus.”

“Remember, these viruses are modifying you every year,” Liz says. “You get viruses and influenzas and things like that and they all do their little dance. We're just making them do a dance that only up-regulates therapeutic genes.”

From increased muscle mass to mitochondria, and from clinical trials to affordability, our conversation about gene therapy takes you into new territory. Listen on to learn more about Liz’s personal experience, her longevity work, and how you can shape your own genes.

Why You Need a COVID-19 Brain Wash – Dr. David Perlmutter : 680
00:56:53

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is Dr. David Perlmutter, a board-certified neurologist and fellow of the American College of Nutrition. He’s spent his career focusing critical attention on brain health, lifestyle and nutrition that maintains health and prevents diseases.

We spend time discussing the coronavirus impact on physical and mental health, as well as ways to keep the immune system going strong.

“Fear destroys immune function, and so does lack of sleep, so does eating poorly, and all of these threaten our first line of defense,” Dr. Perlmutter says. “We can make decisions either from an impulsive part of the brain, the amygdala, that are short term and really interested only in “myself,” or we can tap into the prefrontal cortex and make decisions that have much more long view.”

Dr. Perlmutter’s also a New York Times bestselling author of multiple books. His newest was co-written with his son Austin Perlmutter, M.D. Brain Wash: Detox Your Mind for Clearer Thinking, Deeper Relationships, and Lasting Happiness approaches America's growing epidemics of chronic illness from a simple premise: “We know what we need to do for better health and happiness, but our ability to make good decisions has been hijacked by unhealthy digital media usage, processed food, lack of sleep, chronic stress, and other aspects of modern life—and our physical and mental health is suffering.”

He shows you how to recognize the negative impact of these exposures and then offers a set of practical interventions for reclaiming your brain and improving your health.

As for coronavirus? “The sooner we realize that the party's not going to resume in the near term, and that life is forever going to be changed in our world, the better we can take a deep breath and become pragmatic and make decisions from the prefrontal cortex,” Dr. Perlmutter says.

Resilience Rising with Neil Pasricha : 679
00:58:37

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’m talking to a guest who thinks, writes, and speaks about intentional living. 

Neil Pasricha is known as a top leadership keynote speaker, positive psychology researcher, and international bestselling author of several books, including You Are Awesome: How to Navigate Change, Wrestle with Failure, and Live an Intentional Life. He knows all about how to get to awesome and may just have solved the happiness equation. Gratitude is a big part of that.

“You go around the dinner table, everybody has to say a rose from their day, a highlight, a gratitude, it has to be specific,” Neil says. “Some of this is a neurochemical game. I'm trying to get off dopamine. I want to get back to oxytocin here. I want to get back to touch, kissing, hugs, intimacy, love—those are the chemicals I want in my brain.”

Neil’s also going to let you in on some secrets of confidence, vulnerability and love that will upgrade your resilience.

“One way to get out of our heads, to get out of ourselves, and to build up resilience is to inhabit other consciousness,” he says. “I'm an advocate for wandering and the discovery process that cannot be replicated from I believe any algorithm other than the human mind.”

Powerful Peptides for Your Anti-Aging Arsenal – Dr. Heather Smith-Fernandez : 678
00:59:05

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, we take a deep dive into the exciting topic of peptides—what they are, what they do and ideal dosages. We’ll also introduce you to a brand-new mitochondrial peptide that’s being looked at as a global antiaging molecule.

My guest is a board-certified anesthesiologist and fellow-trained interventional pain medicine physician who graduated in the first-ever class of physicians trained and certified in peptide medicine. 

Dr. Heather Smith-Fernandez founded the Regenerative Institute of Medicine in Naples, Florida. She also founded Peptology™, the study and clinical application of peptides in living beings, both human and non-human. She uses peptides in all areas of her practice, such as regenerative treatments, advanced aesthetics, sexual health, hormone therapy, preventive medicine, and advanced lab testing. She also trains other physicians in specific Peptology™ protocols at her institute.

Peptides are the real deal. After using them for a period of time, “There's a noticeable difference in how you feel, how you think, how you sleep,” Dr. Heather says.

And while she works with a broad range of peptides, she has her favorites. “I think that my love with epitalon is... I love that peptide. I think it's the most understated peptide in our toolbox and I use it a lot. It has tremendous capability and it works in so many different areas. It's one of the true antiaging peptides, in my opinion, and it promotes better sleep, healthier sleep, much healthier sleep, and when it's used in combination with certain other peptides, you get a synergistic effect. Literally, people can feel their brain getting younger when they're using epitalon regularly.”

You’ll find out in this episode why peptides are such a powerful treatment for many health conditions. Their use can improve both your healthspan and lifespan.

Coronavirus Bonus: How to Hack Your Inflammation Storm : 677
00:20:47

This episode is going to be about how to hack coronavirus. No, I don't know how to cure it, but we know some things that it does, and here's some thoughts about what you can possibly do about that. It's causing damage to people's hearts in a lot of people, not just lungs, and it seems to do this through increasing inflammation beyond what would be normal, what we call a cytokine storm.

Here are my tips for hacking Interleukin 6, which we now understand, based on a new study out of Wuhan, China, that this is one of the ways that the coronavirus is killing people by causing a cytokine storm. It's the storm of inflammation.

Support Immune Health in Two Steps: Modulate Gut Bacteria & Neutralize Inflammation – Just Thrive Health : 677
01:26:50

In this episode, my guests Tina Anderson, co-founder and CEO of Just Thrive Health and research microbiologist Kiran Krishnan have returned with updated research and new developments in how to treat and care for the human microbiome.

Tina is a former lawyer who found her life’s work in the field of natural health by creating a unique probiotic supplement company. Kiran is a research microbiologist with particular interest in gut commensal spore bacteria. “In the gut, diversity is paramount to health,” Kiran says. “Diversity in the gut will dictate how long you live. It has a huge impact on your longevity.”

You may know about probiotics, and you may even take them, but do you know why they work and how they support your immune system? Probiotics help immensely. But not just any probiotic—you want to use spore-based. And Tina and Kiran can tell you why bacteria and probiotics are frenemies of the best kind. 

“One of the things that the spores do is they will flag our own cells that are infected with viruses so that our immune system can recognize them,” Kiran says.

And then there are the IgG antibodies that protect the body from infection. “IgG being these intelligent drones that you can send in that go around and find the mold toxin, find the bacterial particles, find the C. diff toxin,” Kiran says. “They neutralize all of these things that are driving the inflammatory process in the gut and get rid of them.”

Essentially, the gut steers the ship of your health. As researchers find out more about the human microbiome—how it operates and how it responds—we’re finding solutions to what ails our human body and brain systems.

Decrease Your Exposure to EMFs Right Now – Dr. Joseph Mercola : 676
00:58:31

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, you’re going to learn a lot about electromagnetic fields, what they are doing to your health, and what you can do about it.

“EMFs are invisible to your eyes and exist in a spectrum of frequencies that include radio and TV waves, microwaves, visible light, ultraviolet light, X-rays, and radioactive elements,” says my guest, Dr. Joseph Mercola, in his new book, “EMF*D: 5G, Wi-Fi & Cell Phones: Hidden Harms and How to Protect Yourself.” “Some sources of EMFs are natural, such as sunlight, while others are man-made—such as the energy used to cook foods by microwave ovens. These EMFs have demonstrable negative physiological effects, but very few people fully grasp this.”

We discuss how important it is that people understand the dangers of EMFs. That can be hard in a world where technology use has become so common.

“You have to get over this hump, this reluctance to accept that there could be some harm that you may have to change your behavior if you want to remain healthy and not suffer serious derangement to your precious mitochondria by excessive exposure to these frequencies,” Dr. Mercola says.

“There are hundreds of millions of people who have symptoms and they don't even know it's due to EMFs. Chronic exposure at high levels that really can decimate biological health.”

Listen on to find out ways you can protect yourself from the everyday dangers of EMFs.

Women, Menopause and Alzheimer’s: XX Brain Connections with Lisa Mosconi, Ph.D. : 675
00:59:09

My guest today is a neuroscientist and neuro-nutritionist recognized and respected for her contributions to the fields of brain science, the microbiome, and nutritional genomics. 

Dr. Lisa Mosconi is the founder and director of the Women's Brain Initiative and associate director of the Alzheimer's Prevention Clinic at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York. She’s also an associate professor of neuroscience in neurology and radiology at Weill Cornell and an adjunct faculty member at New York University’s Department of Psychiatry.

Her current scientific work focuses on the early detection of Alzheimer’s disease in at-risk people, particularly women. More than a decade of research has shown two things, Dr. Mosconi says: “No. 1, Alzheimer's Disease is not a disease of old age, but rather the disease starts with negative changes in the brain years—if not decades—before any clinical symptoms emerge. So, we're looking at midlife, rather than when you're 70 or 80. No. 2, women tend to develop these negative changes in their brains before men do, and specifically as women go through menopause. That was a big finding.”

“Menopause symptoms don't start in the ovaries,” she says, “they start in the brain.” That’s why Dr. Mosconi uses brain imaging techniques such as positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). 

She is passionately interested in how risk of memory loss and Alzheimer’s disease can be mitigated, if not prevented, through the combination of appropriate medical care and lifestyle modifications involving diet, nutrition, physical and intellectual fitness. She details this in her new book, “The XX Brain: The Groundbreaking Science Empowering Women to Maximize Cognitive Health and Prevent Alzheimer's Disease.”

Dr. Mosconi’s research into women’s neurological health is changing the way science approaches the female brain.

Why You Have CCE (Corona Cognitive Epidemic) and What To Do About It – Samuel Veissière, Ph.D. : 674
00:56:17

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is Samuel Veissière, Ph.D., who examines social and evolutionary dimensions of cognition, mental health, and human well-being through a variety of projects. He’s an assistant professor of Psychiatry, co-director of the Culture, Mind, and Brain Program, and an associate member of the department of Anthropology at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

He caught my attention with his recent article in Psychology Today: The Coronavirus Is Much Worse Than You Think: How COVID-19 is infecting our minds, not our lungs.

We’re going to take a look at the Coronavirus, formally named COVID-19, from a decidedly different perspective. One that’s worth thinking about.

“The human mind is really, really, really bad at estimating the statistical probabilities of anything,” Dr. Veissière says. “And human minds have evolved to specific cravings for different kinds of information, in particular, anything that conveys information about potential threats or danger.”

His work as an anthropologist and cognitive scientist includes placebo effects and hypnosis, hyper-sociality in smartphone addiction, social polarization, gender and mental health, and the theoretical study of cultural evolution. He has worked with such varied populations as street children and sex workers in Northeast Brazil, indigenous peoples in the Arctic and the Amazon, children with neurodevelopmental disorders, people who intentionally conjure friendly auditory hallucinations, and Tibetan Buddhist monks in the Indian Himalayas. 

Dr. Veissière has published broadly on novel theories and experimental findings on the social nature of attention, cognition, mental health, and healing, and on the impact of the internet and new technologies on human sociality and well-being. 

As a special bonus in this episode, you’ll find out my best hacks to stay healthy while traveling.

Get Your Brain Right and Your Mind Will Follow – Dr. Daniel Amen : 673
01:02:29

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’ve invited a guest who knows a lot about brains.

As a physician, double-board certified psychiatrist, professor, and 10-time New York Times bestselling author, Dr. Daniel Amen studies brains from the inside out. His clinical focus on studying brain scans has led to new understanding of behavior, brain injuries, and how the brain ages.

Now he’s taking on mental health and showing how neuroscience is transforming psychiatry and helping prevent and even reverse mental health issues. “Nobody believes it's really biological unless you look,” Dr. Amen says. “It's really a functional medicine approach to brain health.” 

He has authored or co-authored over 70 professional articles, seven book chapters and more than 30 books. You may be familiar with some of his titles, like Change Your Brain, Change Your LifeHealing ADD; Memory Rescue; and The Brain Warrior’s Way. Dr. Amen’s newest book, The End of Mental Illness: How Neuroscience Is Transforming Psychiatry and Helping Prevent or Reverse Mood and Anxiety Disorders, ADHD, Addictions, PTSD, Psychosis, Personality Disorders, and More changes the game completely for those experiencing mental illness.

Our conversation reframes mental health as brain health. “I think of brain health really simply,” Dr. Amen says. “It's three things: 1-Care about it; 2-Avoid things that hurt.; and 3-Do things to help it.” Listen on for practical strategies.

Food Fight! Fixes for Better Health and a Sustainable World – Dr. Mark Hyman : 672
00:54:27

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’m excited to bring back a guest who regularly appears on Bulletproof Radio because of his functional medicine expertise and his contributions to the health of people around the world. He’s always innovating and pushing boundaries of what’s possible for human wellness.

Dr. Mark Hyman is a practicing family physician and an internationally recognized leader, speaker, and educator. He’s also a 12-time New York Times best-selling author. But it’s his brand-new book, “Food Fix: How to Save Our Health, Our Economy, Our Communities, and Our Planet—One Bite at a Time” that he says is the most important one he’s ever written.

“Wait a minute,” Dr. Hyman says. “If food is not only making people sick, it's also destroying our environment. It's causing climate change. It's causing social injustice. It's threatening our kids' academic performance in school, their future productivity and success, our global competitiveness, and our national security because kids are too fat or unfit to fight, leading to poverty, mental illness, violence."

As you listen, you’ll find out why Dr. Hyman is:

  • invested in the health and economic impact of our food system;
  • working to save our food environment; and 
  • taking on the many inequalities and injustices of our modern food industry.

Keto, Fiber and Strong Women – Naomi Whittel : 671
00:59:20

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is an entrepreneur, a nutritional expert, and a New York Timesbest-selling author of the book “Glow15.” Naomi Whittel is recognized as an innovator in the health and wellness industry, and an advocate for clean and safe nutrition. 

Naomi cracked the Top 10 all-time favorite Bulletproof Radio episodes and has stayed there since her 2018 interview: Glow From The Inside Out: Autophagy And Women – #477.

Since then, she realized that much of the current ketogenetic information available does not consider the unique needs of female biology. So, she investigated the issue in depth. She went beyond the existing research to design and run her own clinical study.

Prevention magazine listed her as the top female innovator for natural products in the United States. She’s also appeared on numerous national media outlets, such as The Wall Street Journal, Vogue, ELLE, Harper’s Bazaar, ABC News, PBS, InStyle, The View, The Doctors, The Dr. Oz Show, SHAPE, Good Morning America, and the TODAY show.

Naomi joins me again to discuss her new book, “High Fiber Keto: A 22-Day Science-Based Plan to Fix Your Metabolism, Lose Weight & Balance Your Hormones.” She shares her findings on how keto can best benefit women with a few points:

  • “Getting your body into a place where you're using fat for fuel and you're really in a consistent state of nutritional ketosis is the one thing that's going to make the biggest difference once you start to incorporate the fiber.”
  • “Fiber is a very important piece in the nutritional ketogenic diet because it's easy to go off track and not support your microbiome the way that we need to. It's easy to have issues with too much acidity in the diet.”
  • “If I can activate my autophagy by getting into the state of utilizing my ketones and using my own body fat as a source of fuel instead of using the sugar as a source of fuel, how much more free time will I have in the day to be a better thinker?”

Hormones Flex Their Superpowers – Dr. Jolene Brighten : 670
00:52:58

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, Dr. Jolene Brighten returns to the show with more wisdom and honest talk about hormones. As an international speaker, clinical educator and medical advisor within the tech community, she’s considered a leading authority on women’s health. 

She’s a prominent voice in the field of women’s medicine and the emerging science of Post-Birth Control Syndrome. As a Functional Naturopathic medical doctor and nutritional biochemist, she concentrates her efforts on the effects of hormonal birth control on female health. She works to uncover the root cause of hormonal imbalances.

“We can acknowledge that all medical interventions have risks and that all forms of hormones that you are on internally making and also exogenous also have side effects,” says Dr. Brighten, “They can be out of balance, they can be used in the wrong way. Your genetics can come into play with all of this.”

When she was on the show for episode #617, we talked about her new book “Beyond the Pill: A 30-Day Program to Balance Your Hormones, Reclaim Your Body, and Reverse the Dangerous Side Effects of the Birth Control Pill” and how to have way better sex without it—among other things. Before that, we looked at how women’s hormones affect their bodies and brains at different ages and stages of life in episode #415.

This time—we’re heading right into hormonal superpowers and why women are stronger in every way when their hormones are working in sync with their natural rhythms. When hormones—and even the immediate environment—are not aligned, gut health, brain health and virtually every body system is affected. 

“When I talk about your hormones giving you superpowers,” says Dr. Brighten, “it's understanding how to leverage their strengths throughout your menstrual cycle.” 

She offers up knowledge and real solutions so you can manage your hormones at any age in ways that are as individual as you are.

(And for our guys listening who want to understand how hormones affect the women in their life, this information is for you, too.)

Magnesium: The Master Mineral That Conquers Stress – BiOptimizers : 669
00:57:12

BiOptimizers founders Wade Lightheart and Matt Gallant join me on Bulletproof Radio to share exciting new research about magnesium and why you need the right kinds in the right amounts to get all the benefits.

Wade and Matt are known fondly as the “we fix digestion” guys. You may know them from their previous Bulletproof Radio episodes: #515—How to BiOptimize Your Gut & Digestion and #611—Every Little Enzyme Does Its Magic. (If not, take a listen!) 

After experiencing some unexpectedly stressful life events, they turned their attention to researching magnesium. Especially the types of magnesium that play a critical role in your body functions. “What's amazing about magnesium is we know it's involved in 300 different metabolic processes,” Matt says. 

In this episode, you’ll learn about the big 7: Magnesium Chelate, Citrate, Bisglycinate, Malate, L-Threonate, Taurate and Orotate. Getting all of these forms of magnesium, in the optimum dose, can upgrade virtually every function in your body. It’s especially important when combating all the stressors of our modern life—physiological and environmental. “One of the stress responses is that you actually burn out a lot more magnesium out of your nervous system,” Wade says.

Supplementing a little bit of magnesium won’t cut it—especially if you’re aiming for superhuman-level performance of brain, body and mood. Listen on for tips on how to change up your approach to magnesium.

Grinding it Out, Finding Center and Heading Toward a Neon Future – Steve Aoki : 666
00:51:31

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I sat down (and jumped and bounced) with a global trendsetter, entrepreneur and philanthropist.

Steve Aoki is a two-time Grammy-nominated record producer, electronic musician, music executive, DJ, and filmmaker. He’s one of today’s most successful American cross-genre artists, collectively counting 1.5 billion music streams on Spotify, with an additional 2 billion music streams on YouTube. 

He’s also the founder of a record label, events/lifestyle company, and apparel line called Dim Mak. Since 1996, he’s helped launch the careers of global acts like The Chainsmokers and The Kills, among many others. 

His success has come through a work ethic for which he is well known. “I wouldn't call myself a creative genius,” Steve says. “I'm a grinder. So, I grind it out. I'll work three times as hard.”

“I look at life like that where I can achieve anything as long as I work hard,” he says. “Finding that center, I can be able to approach all these different things that I do. And whether they're successful to other people is not what's important to me. Whether it means something to me is what's important.”

Another important part of Steve’s life is the Aoki Foundation that supports brain science and research with a specific focus on regenerative medicine and brain preservation. 

We touch on his new a memoir titled “Blue: The Color of Noise,” and talk about the ways he maintains his health and energy amid his own force-of-nature life.

The Birth Control Episode: The Pill Isn’t Bulletproof – Sarah Hill, Ph.D. : 665
01:18:28

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I talk with Sarah E. Hill, Ph.D., who leads research in the rapidly expanding field of evolutionary psychology. She’s currently a professor and research psychologist at Texas Christian University studying the effects of hormonal birth control on women.

She’s also the author of the book: “This is Your Brain on Birth Control: The Surprising Science of Women, Hormones, and the Law of Unintended Consequences.” It’s an enlightening read that verifies what millions of women have always suspected, but no one confirmed for them until now: The pill changes women.

“Is the best way to prevent pregnancy to totally rewrite everything that creates the experience of being a who a woman is?” Sarah asks.

With more than 50 scientific publications and multiple prestigious research grants to her credit, Sarah has become an authority on the application of evolutionary ideas to human behavior and psychology. She’s been quoted in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Scientific American and The Economist.

“Our sex hormones are part of the signaling architecture that our brain using to create the experience of being the person that we are,” Sarah says. “When we change women's sex hormones—which is what we do with the birth control pill—it’s going to change all sorts of activities in terms of psychological functioning.”

In our interview, Dr. Hill shares her incredible research findings that has uncovered the many ways that the pill changes women’s brains, bodies and lives.

Flip the Switch Up or Down on Autophagy – James Clement : 664
01:01:38

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’m hosting a return guest because he’s doing some truly innovative work in the area of human health span and lifespan. 

James Clement is a lawyer and entrepreneur turned research scientist who has devoted the last two decades to understanding the science of life extension. 

His new book, “The Switch: Ignite Your Metabolism with Intermittent Fasting, Protein Cycling, and Keto,” is the result of years of scientific investigation that started with a curiosity of the human body’s mTOR/autophagy switch. Autophagy is a natural process that recycles and renews damaged cell parts and removes pathogens to keep us healthy. Like a dimmer “switch,” mTOR can turn autophagy up or down. A switch, James says, that’s at the center of nearly every anti-aging drug, nutraceutical, diet, and health choice that we make. 

“The purpose of the book is really to go into this molecular biology mechanism inside the cell, which is about as basic as you can get,” James says. “If you're not working these mechanisms properly, then it doesn't matter what your good intentions are, or the practices that you think you're following.”

In our interview James gives practical tips on how we can activate autophagy through different regimens, such as calorie restriction, intermittent fasting, very-low-carb diets, exercise, or supplements. When it’s switched up, autophagy restores our natural metabolism, slows the aging process, and helps fend off diseases from diabetes, to cancer, to heart disease. 

James also is known for his Supercentenarian Research Study, which he started in 2010 and received international attention. Through worldwide scientific collaborations and in his own laboratory, his work focuses on advancing biomedical discoveries.

A Lesson in Adventure Hacking: Step Toward Your Fear – Jill Heinerth : 663
01:06:08

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest explores the underwater world as one of the greatest cave divers on the planet. She is considered this generation’s Jacques Cousteau. Canadian Jill Heinerth has gone into places in the world where no one had gone before.

“The adventure seeker, the novelty seeker, the sensation seeker isn't necessarily risky in that foolish sort of way,” Jill says. “We're not adrenaline seekers necessarily. It doesn't mean we're dangerous. It doesn't mean were death-wish kind of thing. It just means we're out and interested in stimulation, learning, curiosity, and new things.”

She’s dived deeper into caves than any woman in history and set a women's world record for deep cave penetration. She became the first person to dive the ice caves of Antarctica, going further into an underwater cave system than any woman ever. 

“When I do choose to take risks, I'm very, very careful about assessing risks, trying to prevent as many things that could go wrong, pre-visualizing what could happen underwater, and then ensuring that I have the right training, the right personnel, the right equipment, and redundancy with me, so that I can handle that worst case possible scenario,” Jill says.

She’s completed more than 7,500 dives in her career so far and says, “We are capable of so much more than we could possibly imagine.”

Considered a legend in the diving community, she's spent more than three decades in submerged caves around the world partnering with National Geographic, NOAA, and various educational institutions and television networks worldwide. She’s also a writer and award-winning photographer and filmmaker who takes a keen interest in the health of our Earth’s oceans.

In recognition of her lifetime achievement, Jill was awarded the inaugural Sir Christopher Ondaatje Medal for Exploration. Established by the Royal Canadian Geographical Society in 2013, the medal recognizes singular achievements and the pursuit of excellence by an outstanding Canadian explorer. She also is the first Explorer in Residence for the society.

Jill says cave diving is “one of the most dangerous, yet exhilarating, pursuits in the world.” In our conversation, we talk about her adventures underwater and how her survival depends on how she balances risk, fear and the right amount of breathing.

“I'm scared all the time,” Jill says, “because I think being scared means that I care about the outcome.”

The Simplicity of Tiny Habits Will Change Your Life – BJ Fogg, Ph.D. : 662
00:56:25

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is someone who has cracked the code on a fundamental part of how human behavior works when it comes to forming new habits.

Behavior scientist BJ Fogg, Ph.D., founded the Behavior Design Lab at Stanford University and is considered the leading scientific authority on habits.

“It really is surprising to people how quickly you can form habits,” BJ says, “and there are certain habits that have this transformative impact on you.” There's one habit in particular, called the Maui habit, that he suggests for absolutely everyone. Keep listening to find out how to do it!

His behavior model is easy to learn and easy to apply to everyday life… and doesn’t include willpower. “The thing that wires a habit in is not repetition,” BJ says, “it's the emotion you feel when you do the behavior.” He explains that behavior happens when three elements come together at the same moment: motivation, ability, and a prompt. 

This is going to be the episode that sets you on the path to creating habits that last. Why? Because BJ will introduce you to the science behind forming “Tiny Habits: The Small Changes that Change Everything ” and give you the tools you need to hack your own behavior.

“The book does two things at once,” BJ says. “It defines what behavior design is and gives the models and methods of behavior design. Then more specifically, it walks people through step-by-step tiny habits so people can create habits quickly and easily.”

Just Give a Fork: Eat the Freakin' Pasta – Mareya Ibrahim : 661
01:12:37

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is a TV chef, holistic nutritionist, and award-winning entrepreneur and inventor with more than 25 years of experience in the food industry. Mareya Ibrahim hosts the popular Facebook Live show “The Real Dish” and the "Recipes for Your Best Life” podcast. She also founded Grow Green Industries and co-invented the patented eatCleaner line of products.

She believes in food flexibility while still focusing on a core system that works, “where you're exercising your metabolism, you're flexing your taste buds, you're exploring a variety of different macronutrients and having fun with food,” she says.

Mareya and I talk about her new book, "Eat Like You Give a Fork: The Real Dish on Eating to Thrive," the nuances of clean eating, and why grains aren’t always the enemy.

“At the end of the day, I think what's really important is that we focus on the quality of the food that we're getting and that we eat with intention,” Mareya says.

Stronger at 68: 7 Marathons in 7 Days – Robert Hamilton Owens : 660
01:09:39

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest defies aging by pushing the limits of his own endurance as an athlete and adventurer well into his sixth decade. After a 20-year hiatus from competitive fitness, Robert Hamilton Owens took it up again at age 50. By age 65, he felt ready to take on five of the world’s toughest endurance events. IN. ONE. YEAR. 

He competed in an 8-day race over 200 miles across Greece; a combination run/ocean swim event lasting more than nine hours; an Ironman Triathlon; seven marathons in seven days on seven continents; and a 50-hour challenge modeled after a Navy SEAL-style Hell Week. 

Yet, Robert says; “I'm an average guy. And what I learned in this process was that if an average person will continue to do the right things and persevere, they'll do far more than they think they can ever do.” 

In our conversation, we talk training styles, grit, toughness, and what it takes to find your “why” and keep going. That includes being vulnerable and asking for help.

“Most people will hit a natural mental ceiling,” Robert says. “Your mind is geared to protect you. You think thoughts to protect you, you don't want to be hurt. And yet to get to the places you want to go, you're going to have to go through pain; mental pain, emotional pain, relational pain, financial pain, situational pain. And you don't want pain. None of us do. But the only way to grow is to embrace that pain.”

It’s Time to Break Up With Sugar – Michele Promaulayko : 659
00:52:09

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest tackles a topic in her newest book that has far-reaching implications for just about every aspect of human health—sugar. And she talks about it a way that's really useful because sugar is an emotional, psychological, and physical and biochemical thing all at once. Not quite heroin but not that far away.

“Sugar has the tightest grip on us, right?” Michele Promaulayko says. “Even the "healthiest" people I know have a problem with sugar. As I was developing “Sugar Free 3,” every single person I spoke to said, "I need that." And they all do need it because we're a nation of sugar addicted people.”

We discuss the insidious ways added sugar shows up in our food supply and how we’re unintentionally consuming it because it’s hiding in so many foods. “The frenemy,” says Michele in “Sugar Free 3: The Simple 3-Week Plan for More Energy, Better Sleep, and Surprisingly Easy Weight Loss!”. “And that’s exactly what sugar is. … Sure, it acts life your most supportive BFF, there for you at all hours, especially the late nights when you think you need it most. But when you stop to really thing about it, sugar takes way more than it gives.”

In our conversation, Michele suggests genius ways to use aromatherapy to curb cravings, gives practical tips on how to reset your palette, and recommends ways to loosen sugar’s grip. You can find even more tips in the book or on the new video series platform Sugar Free 3 on Openfit.

Michele is an award-winning print and digital editor, journalist and author. As the former editor-in-chief of Comopolitan magazine, Yahoo Health, and Women’s Health magazine, she has been an influential voice for health, wellness, and women’s issues for two decades. She’s now editorial-director-at-large for THE WELL—a new health ecosystem—where she continues to be a leader in the modern wellness conversation.

Fast Fitness! 40 Seconds, 3 Times a Week – Lance Dalleck, Ph.D. : 657
01:01:50

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is Lance Dalleck, Ph.D., a professor of Exercise and Sport Science at Western Colorado University in Gunnison, Colorado. 

He shares some interesting findings from his research that support the effectiveness of high-intensity interval training on the CAR.O.L. bike, an AI-powered, interactive exercise bike with self-learning algorithms. CAR.O.L. stands for CARdiovascular Optimization Logic. You may remember that I talked with the CAR.O.L. FIT AI co-founders on episode #615 of Bulletproof Radio about how to hack your cardiovascular system with the CAR.O.L. bike.

Lance teaches in both the Exercise and Sport Science and High-Altitude Exercise Physiology programs. He researches primary and secondary prevention of chronic diseases through evidence-based interventions like exercise and nutrition and quantifies the energy expenditure of outdoor and non-traditional types of physical activity. His research into CAR.O.L. culminated in a paper published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health: “Reduced Exertion High-Intensity Interval Training is More Effective at Improving Cardiorespiratory Fitness and Cardiometabolic Health than Traditional Moderate-Intensity Continuous Training.”

“With a 20-second sprint, you're increasing your energy demand above rest substantially,” Lance says. “That's a severe disruption to your homeostasis. And as a result of that, you're putting in motion a variety of upregulation of metabolic pathways that allow you to provide energy that will regenerate ATP so that you can keep sprinting for 20 seconds. And the research is pretty clear that we've identified that minimum time that turns on these pathways, 20 seconds, two bouts a day, and that's sufficient.”

Lance has published more than 100 peer-reviewed articles, delivered 30 conference proceedings, and written 10 book chapters. He on the Scientific Advisory Panel for the American Council on Exercise.

Do Less to Get More – Kate Northrup : 654
01:02:27

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’m taking with Kate Northrup. As an entrepreneur, best-selling author, speaker, activist and mother, she has built a multimedia digital company by doing less and working fewer hours—all while raising two small kids.

In her newest book, “Do Less: A Revolutionary Approach to Time and Energy Management for Busy Moms,” she says a resounding no to the addiction of busyness and debunks the myth that personal worth equals productivity.

“We might be doing things just because we're upholding some standards that if we really were to check in with our hearts and souls, they're not actually bringing us joy,” she says. “So, I believe things need to either bring us results or bring us joy. If they don't bring us results or joy, they have no business in our lives.”

I’m excited to talk to Kate about how she balances practical data with the important soul work to manage her business, her energy and her life. I’m especially intrigued with how she manages to “bend time.”

Mastering Brain Waves and Creating Mind Bridges – Dawson Church : 653
01:09:53

YuIn this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’m at the Beverly Hilton in L.A. with my good friend Dawson Church, Ph.D. Today we’re going to dive into brain wave—what they are, why their frequencies are important and what they do in various emotional states, from stress to meditation.

You’ll find out how brain growth is influenced by “the power of our behavior, of our beliefs, of our practices, of our spiritual practices, of our emotional states on our brains,” Dawson says. “We are reshaping our brains with every thought we think, with every emotion we feel, with every meditation session we do.”

Some background you should know about Dawson: He’s an expert tapper—not of the dancing kind, but rather the emotional freedom technique kind. (EFT for short.) He’s also been on Bulletproof Radio before. In episode 474, we talked about all things tapping and he led me through an EFT session on that podcast. He has conducted dozens of clinical trials and founded the National Institute for Integrative Healthcare to promote groundbreaking new treatments. He’s studied the effects of meditation on the brain and tapping as a technique to help people heal from physical, emotional and mental challenges.

As an award-winning author and researcher, his book “The Genie in Your Genes” linked emotions and genetics. His follow-up book, “Mind to Matter” examined the science of peak mental states. We discuss his forthcoming book, “Bliss Brain,” and the surprising science of the brain he discovered in his research and study of brain waves.

“One of the big mysteries of neuroscience for decades was that the brain activity doesn't fluctuate by more than 5% up or down, day or night,” he says. “When you relax, your brain doesn't relax. Your brain activity just stays at the same high level.” … “When you're not doing a task, the brain sees all this unused spare capacity and it says, "Great. Let's grab this." And it grabs it to such a consistent degree that we call that the default mode network.”

Listen on to learn more about brain activity and the fascinating way it bridges your consciousness.

Altered States of Sex – Layla Martin : 651
01:03:50

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I have a fascinating guest who teaches people the tools and techniques required to experience pleasurable sex. Women's Health Magazine calls her, "the Headmistress of Pleasure," and Cosmopolitan calls her a “Sexpert Extraordinaire." 

Layla Martin studied human sexuality and human biology at Stanford and then spent a decade learning from Tantric masters in the jungles of Asia. She combines modern science with the effective practices of Tantra to inspire people to heal trauma or shame and fully awaken their sexuality. 

“Humans need access to these mystical states of awareness,” she says. “It's not something just privileged or woo-woo or something for yoga class; it's something that people need to be operating at the highest level of neurological health.”

As the founder of the Tantric Institute of Integrated Sexuality, Layla teaches people how to experience more epic sex and legendary love through her trademarked VITA™ Method. She has a potent approach to up-leveling sex and life, and she shares her practices on her YouTube channel, which has nearly 90 million views to date.

So, if you’re ready to upgrade your sex life, listen on for this and more of Layla’s advice: “Being connected to your body, understanding your energy system and having an ability to feel heightened sensations all contribute to being excellent in bed.”

Overcoming Addictions with Plant Medicine – Gerard Powell : 650
01:00:35

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’m talking to a guest who by all outward appearances had it all. A member of the “one-percent,” Gerard Powell made his millions from creating and selling multiple companies. But his life was a mess in many ways, and he battled multiple addictions.

In his new book, “Sh*t the Moon Said: A Story of Sex, Drugs, and Transformation,” he says, “My many addictions during those years—drugs, alcohol, sex—were certainly destructive to myself and damaging to the people around me. But if there was anything good about that behavior, it would be the fact that I was seeking a different state of consciousness. I was seeking it in all the wrong places, but at least I was a seeker.”

Through plant medicine he mapped a psycho-spiritual path that helped him overcome his addictions and achieve lasting peace. Today, Gerard shares his journey and life-changing experience with ayahuasca—as well as how he now brings what he’s learned to others.

Gerard now is a consciousness thought-leader, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and inspirational speaker. He is the founder and CEO of Rythmia Life Advancement Center in Costa Rica, which is a go-to destination for a spiritually awakening experience.

How Foods are Harming Your Kids – Steven Gundry, M.D. : 649
00:57:22

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, Dr. Steven Gundry is back on the show with new research about how food is affecting our kids. 

He’s a renowned heart surgeon, celebrity doctor, and medical researcher with a focus on curing modern diseases via dietary changes. You may know him from his New York Times best-selling books, “The Plant Paradox” and “The Longevity Paradox.” You can listen to Bulletproof Radio episodes #417 and #604 for more information on those topics.

In his latest book, “The Plant Paradox Family Cookbook: 80 One-Pot Recipes to Nourish Your Family Using Your Instant Pot, Slow Cooker or Sheet Pan,” Dr. Gundry revisits his foundational approach and expands it to include the latest nutritional science for kids. He also offers families practical tools for transitioning to the Plant Paradox lifestyle.

As busy and often tired parents with a multitude of responsibilities, we may say to ourselves that it’s ok to grab fast food or order take out. “Well, it's not okay,” says Dr. Gundry. “The studies show the sooner we start our kids eating properly, the sooner you set them up for a lifetime of successful health.”

How to Stay Present No Matter What – Don Wood, Ph.D. : 648
01:04:56

This episode of Bulletproof Radio was recorded live at the Genius Network. My guest spent years researching how trauma affects our minds and our lives. In doing so, he began to understand that events and experiences throughout our lifetime continue to play a role in how we experience life in the present. 

“Trauma is a glitch, it's an error message,” says Don Wood, Ph.D. “If you think about something that happened to you 10 years ago and you feel fear or anger, or you feel an emotion, then that's affecting you.”

He also realized that there was a better way of treating the issue. “Teaching people to live with, manage and cope with the daily stress doesn’t fix the problem,” Don says. “The solution comes from understanding its source and providing a long-term permanent solution.”

So, Don developed a more efficient and effective solution for trauma using modern advancements in the study of neuroscience and cutting-edge proprietary techniques. The result has been the development of the Inspired Performance Institute and the creation of a revolutionary approach to performance improvement.

Learn How to Direct Your Brain’s Pathways – Dr. Tara Swart : 647
00:56:37

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is Tara Swart, M.D., Ph.D., a neuroscientist, medical doctor, leadership coach, and bestselling author. She works with leaders all over the world to help them improve their ability to manage stress, regulate emotions, and retain information. 

She’s a senior lecturer at MIT Sloan School of Management where she runs the Neuroscience for Leadership and Applied Neuroscience programs and is an executive advisor to some of the world’s most respected leaders in media and business. She specializes in sectors that face unusual levels of stress or change. She’s also an online columnist for Fast Company and Forbes. 

 She helps high performers achieve their peak brain performance. I’m excited to talk to her about her new book, “The Source: The Secrets of the Universe, the Science of the Brain,” which explains how to rewire the brain’s pathways to make lasting, positive changes in people’s lives.

Part of that rewiring focuses on mental resilience and adversity capability.

“Our ability to endure and bounce back from adversity is a capability that can be built into our brain,” Dr. Swart says. “And there are certain factors that help to really incorporate that into our tool kit. Because of things like the natural loss aversion of the brain, we have to override that with a different form of thinking.

Dr. Swart also is intrigued by the three-way transmission of information between the limbic system, gut neurons and the gut microbiome. 

“Bacteria are using us as avatars to get whatever nutrition or resource they need to be able to survive, to multiply, then transform,” she says. “The way that helps leaders from a pathological angle is if you’ve got an addiction or a terrible craving, understanding that it could be the bacteria in your gut that's causing that, not you. And I think that level of separation helps people to step back and think…”

Listen on to learn more about gaining greater clarity about your own intuition and the untapped potential of your brain.

“I think that whole process of evolving and challenging your beliefs and embracing new ideas is really important,” Dr. Swart says. “I think my niche is to be able to represent based on current modern scientific thinking. How some of those things, like the law of attraction, manifestation, visualization could actually help us to have a slightly better life than the one that we have at the moment.”

What You Eat is Turning Your Genes On and Off – Teri Cochrane : 646
00:55:28

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest, Teri Cochrane, CN, CCP, shares exciting discoveries about how our food choices influence how our genes are expressed. We discuss her research on epigenetics and nutrigenomics, and how eating wild-caught, wild-fed proteins can lead to better health on a molecular level. “Just eat based to your genetic blueprint and where you are on your health continuum,” she says.

 Teri is an integrative practitioner and thought leader in personalized health care. She specializes in complex health conditions in private clinical practice. She has developed her own methodology that integrates a multi-level nutritional approach—including biochemistry, nutrition, genetic tendencies, herbology, and counseling—to develop a bio-individualized plan for her clients. 

As the author of the “The Wildatarian Diet: Living as Nature Intended,” Teri helps us look at the malabsorption of protein, fat, and sulfur, and how these “big three” tamper with our gene expression. She also takes aim at protein abnormalities.

“Disruptors such as pathogens, mycotoxins, stress, amyloids and inflammatory foods work together to impair body balance,” Teri says. “We have found a direct link between amyloids, mycotoxins and these health disruptors in the acceleration of disease.”

Listen on to understand how to choose food that’s just right for you and how to get your body back in balance.

Use Atomic Habits to Upgrade Your Decisions – James Clear : 645
01:10:45

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, what interests me most about James Clear is that he’s researched habits in the context of human potential—he’s always searching for the answer to a central question, “How can we live better?” 

He’s a writer and speaker focused on habits, decision-making, and continuous improvement. His best-selling book, “Atomic Habits: An Easy and Proven Way to Build Good Habits and Break Bad Ones,” is grounded in meticulous research and details how habits can help people fulfill their potential. 

“Your habits compound over time as they start to layer on top of each other and increase over time,” James says. “But your decisions—if you imagine your life is like a string of decisions—those decisions can compound for you or against you, too. The benefit of making a single good choice is fine, but the benefit of making a string of good choices can be significantly better. You're really trying to string those two together.”

His work has appeared in many media outlets, including Entrepreneur and Time magazines, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and on CBS This Morning. He also is a regular speaker at Fortune 500 companies, and his work is used by coaches and players in the NFL, NBA, and MLB.

01:09:28

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is Dr. James Gordon, a Harvard-educated psychiatrist and a world-renowned expert in using mind-body medicine to heal depression, anxiety, and psychological trauma. He founded and now serves as executive director of The Center for Mind-Body Medicine—an organization that focuses on life-changing therapeutic work with individuals, families and groups. 

Dr. Gordon explains that trauma is a human experience, not a pathological anomaly. His new book, “The Transformation: Discovering Wholeness and Healing After Trauma,” helps people understand their own capacity to heal themselves.

“The premise is that what we're teaching about self-awareness and self-care—and also encouraging people to get support from other humans—is fundamental to the understanding and treatment of all trauma,” he says. 

For more than 25 years, he has led teams in relieving population-wide psychological trauma: during and after wars in the Balkans, the Middle East and Africa; after climate related disasters in Louisiana, Texas, California, Puerto Rico, and Haiti; in communities affected by school shootings; and with active duty U.S. military and veterans and their families.

01:07:30

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest, Dr. Andrew Miller, is an internationally recognized expert in the interactions between the brain and immune system as they relate to stress and depression. 

“Inflammaging is one of the hottest topics in immunology right now because we recognize that much of what drives the process of aging in the brain and much of what drives many of the illnesses that eventually do people in, are driven by inflammation,” he says.  “So, we're talking cardiovascular disease, we're talking about diabetes, we're talking about cancer, we're talking about neurodegenerative disorders.” … “All the modern ills that we as a society are grappling with right now.”

Dr. Miller is the vice-chair of Research in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and director of the Behavioral Immunology Program at Emory School of Medicine. His research focuses on the underlying mechanisms by which inflammation can cause depression in humans and non-human primates.

Shine a (Red) Light on Your Health – Scott Nelson : 639
01:06:50

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, we’re talking about all the health benefits of light with Scott Nelson, co-founder of Joovv, one of the world’s most trusted manufacturers of red light therapy devices. 

Prior to cofounding Joovv, Scott spent his professional career in leadership positions with some of the largest medical device companies in the world, including Medtronic, Covidien, Boston Scientific, and C.R. Bard. He’s since brought his skills into the arena of red light therapy, called photobiomodulation.

Joovv devices are used by people in their own homes; in salons and spas around the world for natural skin health and anti-aging benefits; and trusted by pro sports teams, Olympians, and world-class trainers and gyms for proven performance and muscle recovery benefits. Clinics and health practitioners also incorporate Joovv as a safe, natural joint pain and inflammation treatment. 

“Light is underappreciated as an aspect of health,” says Scott “Most people think of food and supplements and some type of training regimen. But the overwhelming majority of people don't think of light as part of that kind of overall health equation.” 

Junk light matters and high nutrient light matters. Listen on for how light therapy can improve bone, hormone and gut health, collagen production, and more. We talk about the exciting new research that’s emerging about red light therapy, what that means for you and how you can make light part of your own health equation.

I talked with Scott and Joovv’s other co-founder, Justin Strahan, on a previous episode of Bulletproof Radio: LIGHT HACKING: INFRARED, THE SUN & YOUR HEALTH – JOOVV #516. If you haven’t already, I encourage you to listen to that for the backstory on Joovv and how they got started.

01:05:25

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, Brett Wingeier, Ph.D., talks with me about all things neurostimulation at the Halo Neuroscience headquarters in San Francisco. I pick his brain and he runs electrical currents over mine.

“Brains love to learn,” Brett says. Fundamental to learning is neuroplasticity, the brain’s ability to form and reorganize synaptic connections. Brett and the Halo team have found a way to leverage this by “using technology to make sure that your brain is dialed in and ready to use its natural learning mechanisms where and when you want it.”

Brett co-founded Halo and now serves as its Chief Technology Officer. He’s an engineer and neuroscientist with two decades of experience creating science-based products to unlock human potential and treat disease. Prior to Halo, Brett assisted in the development of the first fully implantable responsive neurostimulator for epilepsy and was instrumental in designing a groundbreaking minimally invasive solution for headaches.

He’s fired up and wants you to be, too: “If people just got off the crap and started eating real food, and literally unplugged from the industrial food system, their health would dramatically improve,” Dr. Hyman says. “We would reverse climate change. We would end social injustice and poverty. We'd have money enough for free education, and free healthcare for everybody, and can support the neediest among us with no effort, and have lots of money left over to do cool stuff and create new science, and solve all the world's problems just by cooking at home.”

Habits, Happiness and Human Nature – Gretchen Rubin : 636
00:53:58

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I have the pleasure of talking with Gretchen Rubin, who is one of today’s most influential and thought-provoking observers of happiness and human nature. She’s known for her ability to distill and convey complex ideas with humor and clarity, in a way that’s accessible and relevant.

She’s been interviewed by Oprah, walked arm-in-arm with the Dalai Lama, had her work written up in a medical journal, been the subject of a “The Talk of the Town” piece in The New Yorker magazine, and been an answer on the game show Jeopardy!

She’s the author of numerous books, including the “New York Times” bestsellers, “The Four Tendencies” and “Better Than Before.”” Her book The Happiness Project” spent more than two years on the ”New York Times” bestseller list, including at No. 1. Combined, her books have sold more than 3.5 million copies worldwide and have been published in more than 30 languages. 

Here are a few “Gretchen says” moments from our discussion:

  • About habits: “ ‘We know these things will make us happier. Why don't we do them?’ and that's often a problem with habit formation.”


  • About happiness: “There are some things that we can't really affect, and then there are some things that we really can affect with our conscious thoughts and actions, and so, to me, it's much more interesting to think like, "Whoever I am, wherever I'm coming from, can I be happier?" 


  • About human nature: “It really shines a spotlight on some aspect of your character, your nature that is very, very helpful, so I think sometimes it's just that showing you something about yourself that maybe you weren't keyed into.”


Gretchen draws from cutting-edge science, the wisdom of the ages, lessons from popular culture, and her own experiences to explore how we can make our lives happier, healthier, more productive, and more creative.

Why Your Doctor is Not Your Mommy – Own Your Self with Kelly Brogan, M.D. : 635
01:18:42

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, Dr. Kelly Brogan, a holistic women’s health psychiatrist, shows people that they don’t have to medicate their mental, emotional, and physical pain away—that the best way out is through. She explains what led her to stop prescribing medication to her own patients and helps people decode the myths and misconceptions of the current healthcare system so they can lead a healthy, vital life.

She’s board certified in psychiatry, psychosomatic medicine, and integrative holistic medicine and specializes in a root-cause resolution approach to psychiatric syndromes and symptoms. 

Her new book—"Own Your Self: The Surprising Path Beyond Depression, Anxiety, and Fatigue to Reclaiming Your Authenticity, Vitality, and Freedom”— presents a radical alternative to psychotropic meds.

She explodes the mistaken belief that symptoms—from mood changes to irritability to fogginess and fatigue—are evidence that people are sick or broken. “I became interested in the role of belief,” Dr. Brogan says. “And how what's really happening when we're talking about the engagement of health practices is the exercising of a belief system. So, I started to study the anatomy of that—the placebo, nocebo effect, expectancy—and really what it is to inhabit a belief system.”

Dr. Brogan says our experiences aren’t problems or pathologies; they reflect what we need to accept, acknowledge and transform in order to truly become who we are. “Authenticity has become the most powerful form of social currency.”

What the Godfather of IF Eats - Mark Mattson, Ph.D. : 634
01:20:45

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is one of the world’s top experts on the health benefits of intermittent fasting on the brain and body.

Decades before intermittent fasting diets became popular, Mark began studying mouse models to understand how the brain adapts to challenges like fasting and exercise. He and his research teams have shown that fasting can improve cognitive function and metabolic health. Early studies in humans now are underway.

“Intermittent fasting and exercise can reverse diabetes, and obesity in humans if a person can switch their eating pattern, and get on an exercise program,” Mark says.

His work on intermittent fasting has been featured on national media and he has given a TED Talk, “Why Fasting Bolsters Brain Power”. Our conversation in this episode covers a lot of ground, such as:

  • What happens during a fasted ketogenic state;
  • How to choose an intermittent fasting time period;
  • What and when Mark eats to obtain maximum intermittent fasting brain and body benefits;
  • How the mTor pathway is inhibited;
  • How autophagy acts as both a garbage disposal and a recycling bin; 
  • How the Nrf2-ARE antioxidant defense pathway is activated; and
  • How important nerve growth factor (NGF) and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) are to brain health.


Mark currently is a professor of Neuroscience at Johns Hopkins University. He’s one of the foremost researchers in the area of cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. Previously, he was chief of the Laboratory of Neurosciences at the National Institute on Aging Intramural Research Program (IRP) at the National Institutes of Health since 2000.

“Just like you talk about the body and its autoimmune system, you have a spiritual immune system,” Shaman Durek says. “You have an energetic system in your body that literally learns by how you operate in your life through energy patterns, responses, frequencies, how you speak, your words you choose to use that have coding. Everything is building that immune system or tearing down that immune system.”

So, listen on to up-level your own spiritual side.

Through insight, intuition, meditation techniques—and ancient biohacks!—Rajshree will guide you to identify what’s working (and not) in your life by tapping into what she calls “vital force.”

“What I know is that vital force is one of the fastest ways to have mental hygiene,” Rajshree says. “Optimizing by taking short pauses, maybe 10 minutes a day in the morning if you want to or short pauses through the day, two-minute pauses, to just do mental hygiene, that's all.”

Throughout our conversation, we pull topics and tips from her new book “The Power of Vital Force: Fuel Your Energy, Purpose, and Performance with Ancient Secrets of Breath and Meditation.” The techniques you're going to learn about today are all about meditation and breathing and developing consciousness.

Plug in to Your Own Power Source – David Meltzer : 631
01:08:40

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my conversation with David Meltzer goes in an unexpected direction. 

We're talking about a guy who was CEO of Samsung's first smart phone division, a guy who's had a profoundly strong career in business and has written books on actually how to be happy. Books on how people succeed at different levels, and what the definition of success is. He just came out with a new book that I thought was really worth talking about: “Game-Time Decision Making: High-Scoring Business Strategies from the Biggest Names in Sports.” 

While we did cover David’s ideas about how to work hard, smart and long (as in a consider-your-future-goals long game), we turned the corner into four of his life priorities: gratitude, forgiveness, accountability, and inspiration.

“I am worthy of everything I have,” David says, “and I can manifest anything I want.” He believes that you can think and do the same.

David is the CEO of Sports 1 Marketing, considered to be the world’s premier global sports and entertainment marketing firm. He’s a two-time international best-selling author and has been named by Forbes and Entrepreneur magazines as a Top Keynote Speaker. He’s also a Top 100 Business Coach, the executive producer and host of Entrepreneur's No. 1 show, Elevator Pitch, and host of the top business podcast, The Playbook. 

He wants people to know how to find and use their own inner power source so it fuels their energy, successes and happiness. “You've got to find your frequency,” David says. “You've got to know what you are. You got to know what your values are.” 

Listen on to learn how to forgive yourself for your mistakes, let go of guilt that may be attracting shortages, voids, and obstacles in your life, and confront the ego that actually may be holding you back

“We can change the world if we figure out—systematically, mathematically, scientifically—happiness,” David says. “Get better, work those muscles to stay at peace, and not live in ego-based consciousness or fear.”

Armor-Plated Immortal Probiotics from Space – Just Thrive Health : 629
01:13:16

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I talk with two guests about all things microbiome.

Tina Anderson is the co-founder and CEO of Just Thrive Health. Her journey into the world of health had a unique start and some unusual turns. She began her career as a trial lawyer and then became in-house counsel for a family pharmaceutical company. But what Tina saw there made her change career direction. She turned toward the field of natural health and found her life’s work in creating a unique probiotic supplement.

Kiran Krishnan is a research microbiologist with particular expertise in the newest frontier in microbiology—gut commensal spore bacteria. He brings his extensive knowledge and practical application of the latest science on the human microbiome. “We know diversity within the microbiome is paramount to health and wellness, and even longevity,” he says.

At Just Thrive Health, the focus is on probiotics that can actually survive the Wild West that is your microbiome. “We're putting a lot of effort into the science to understand microbial communities, microbial community structures and how they work together,” Kiran says. 

“In order to be a probiotic, it needs to arrive alive in the intestines,” Tina says. “It needs to actually confer a benefit onto the host, onto the body. Most of these probiotics were just getting into the gut and dying, dying before they ever got into the intestines. So, we looked at the research.”

“You've got this gauntlet that microbes have to get through when they go through the oral cavity in order to be alive and function in the gut,” Kiran continues. “So, our question was, are there microbes that can naturally do that?”

The more we’re researching the human microbiome, the more we’re learning about the connection between the gut and all other human body and brain systems. And that means better health for you. Listen on to learn more about what Just Thrive Health has discovered about probiotics. And yes, you’ll find out how bacteria can be armor-plated, live forever and survive in space.

The Phenomenon of Your Metabolism – Siim Land : 628
01:11:22

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, Siim Land joins me from Estonia, a Baltic country in Eastern Europe on the southern coast of the Gulf of Finland. 

He’s an author, public speaker, and coach. After a short stint in the military and earning a degree in Anthropology, he decided instead to fully commit to writing, podcasting, entrepreneurship, and coaching in the health and wellness space.He educates people about optimizing health, performance, longevity, and well-being with different biohacking techniques. 

In his newest book, “Metabolic Autophagy,” Siim takes a nearly 500-page dive into the most current technology and scientific research available so you can “improve healthspan, get more things done and potentially increase life expectancy.” 

“Your whole entire world is almost surrounded by the concept of metabolism,” Siim says. “The reason I added autophagy to that is also that when I was doing that research about autophagy then I realized that it's kind of a very central component to everything else that your body goes through on a daily basis.”

We talk about autophagy, intermittent fasting, keto-adaption and much more in this episode. Siim’s perspective on biohacking is nuanced and backed by a whole lotta science. He’s done the research legwork so you don’t have to. Listen on as he gives practical tips for where to start and how to get results—all with a common-sense approach.

“I think the emphasis shouldn't be to kick your ass all the time and do a lot of stressful activities but also actually allow your body to heal and use those things as a form of recovery,” he says.

The Power of Shame with Depressed Comedian Kristen Carney : 627
01:06:05

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is comedian, writer and podcaster Kristen Carney. 

She performs stand-up comedy at live shows, on television, and, of course, all over the Internet. She’s also written for Comedy Central and The Adam Carolla Show. As a radio personality, she’s co-hosted “Loveline” with Dr. Drew and Mike, as well as The Adam Carolla Show. While she’s co-hosting the “Ask Women” podcast, she gets candid about sexuality.

And if you’re thinking we’re going to talk about all things funny and sexy today, you’d be right—and wrong. 

Kristen juggles all her professional gigs while managing clinical depression. She hosts a podcast—Kristen and Ch(ill)—to bring the real challenges of depression and mental health into an honest public forum.

“When you're depressed, you're so weighed down by the smallest little tasks like getting up to take a shower or paying your car bill,” she says. “Those things feel so heavy that the last thing on your list is figuring out how to get a brain scan.”

We talk about how she hacks her brain health, what she does on the just-plain-sucks days, the difficulties of dating when depressed, how shame shows up, and why headstands have become her go-to, feel-better move.

“I'm not trying to spin it positive when it's not,” Kristen says, “but to actually find the positive in it that's genuine.” Listen on for some surprising insights.

We Can Slow Down Aging Right Now – David Sinclair, Ph.D. : 626
01:11:49

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio,my guest is an Australian biologist best known for his research on lifespan extension and the treatment of diseases for aging.

“I'm a scientist,” says David Sinclair, Ph.D., “and I'm trying to figure this stuff out before time runs out for all of us.”

David is a professor in the department of Genetics at Harvard Medical School and also co-director of Harvard’s Paul F. Glenn Center for the Biology of Aging. He’s the co-creator and co-chief editor of the journal Aging, has co-founded several biotechnology companies, and is an inventor of nearly three dozen patents. 

Among the career honors and awards he’s received are his inclusion in Time Magazine’s list of the “100 Most Influential People in the World” in 2014 and “The Healthcare 50: Fifty People Transforming Healthcare in 2018.”

For two decades, his research at The Sinclair Lab has consistently focused on understanding how and why human beings age and how to slow its effects. 

“We need to move to a world where we know much more about our bodies and what's going on so we can get ahead of the problems before they actually cause us to get diseases,” he says.

David has introduced an exciting new longevity theory based on his own research and the top aging scientific breakthroughs known to date. In this conversation, you’ll learn what he’s discovered about aging—he’s “reprogramming cells to be young again”—and the exciting science behind his new book: "Lifespan: The Revolutionary Science of Why We Age — and Why We Don’t Have To.”

She’s the CEO of Marie Forleo International, a best-selling author, an entrepreneurship coach, a philanthropist, and she also runs the acclaimed business training program, B-School.

Mycelium Just Might Save the Bees, And Us – Paul Stamets : 624
01:15:48

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, Paul Stamets is with me in person at Alpha Labs. Paul is a speaker, author, mycologist, medical researcher and entrepreneur. He is considered an intellectual and industry leader in habitat, medicinal use and production of fungi, and he considers himself a “mycological warrior.” Listening to him describe, decode and illuminate the workings of the mushroom world is an enthralling experience, indeed.

“Mushrooms can feed you, they can kill you, they can heal you, they can send you on a spiritual journey,” Paul says. He knows all of this from first-hand experience. He’s spent over four decades in the Pacific Northwest studying and researching the world of mushrooms. He lectures extensively and his presentations cover a range of mushroom species and research showing how mushrooms can help the health of people and the planet. 

From origins: “Over 500 million years ago, fungi were the first organisms come to land,” Paul says. “Just this past month [May 2019], they found new fossil records that pushes back the entrance of fungi onto land to a billion years ago. This is hundreds of millions of years before plants.”

To modern humans: “You and I are actually mycelial beings, and we are descendant of fungi,” he says. “Fungi are our ancestors.”

Paul says we’re intertwined with mushrooms at a cellular level. He believes that habitats have immune systems—just like people—and mushrooms are cellular bridges between the two. Our close evolutionary relationship to fungi can be the basis for novel pairings in the microbiome that lead to greater sustainability and immune enhancement.

And from neurogenesis to our microbiome to our mitochondria, fungi are linked to us. Part history lesson and all interesting, Paul’s stories are filled with intriguing discoveries. 

His research is considered revolutionary and is creating a paradigm shift for helping ecosystems worldwide.

As a special bonus in this episode, Paul shares exciting new information about his work with bees. “This'll be the first podcast that I'll be mentioning something that enables and empowers everybody on this planet to do something,” he says. Hint: it has something to do with bears, bees, butterflies and biodefense. Learn more about the BeeMushroomed™ Feeder.

You Can’t Instagram Health: Evolving with Chalene Johnson : 623
01:12:43

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is a lifestyle and business expert, motivational speaker, and host of two top-ranked podcasts: “The Chalene Show” and “Build Your Tribe.” The Huffington Post has recognized Chalene Johnson as one of the “Top 50 Female Entrepreneurs to Watch.” She’s also sold millions of fitness videos and is The Guinness Book of World Records-holder for being featured in the highest number of fitness videos.

After years of success in the fitness industry, a shocking health scare prompted her to question her whole approach to wellness—her own and others’. “It didn't dawn on me the damage I was doing to my brain and how that isn't health,” she says. “That was abuse.”

And now, with the help of top dietitians, doctors, researchers and experts, she’s turning the diet industry upside down. “I realize I have to be really open minded now to science and open minded to the fact that we just are learning so much more every single day—and it's exciting.” She’s founded the 131 Method and written a new book by the same name, “131 Method: Your Personalized Nutrition Solution to Boost Metabolism, Restore Gut Health, and Lose Weight.”

“I am evolved,” Chalene says. “And I have to keep my integrity. And that's not always easy. But if you just stay focused on what you know and what you believe is right and you just keep taking the next right step, those decisions get a little easier.”

In my conversation with Chalene, we tackle lies in the fitness industry, shady marketing tactics and smart consumers, personalized nutrition, Keto for women, phases of fasting, why achieving health can be fraught with privilege, and more.
