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?”


Listen on to find out more about the important fiber-keto connection. Naomi lays out the new science, gives tips on what to do and explains exactly why it matters to women.

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.

Lance's research validates the science behind CAR.O.L. FIT AI, a game-changing exercise bike that delivers peak fitness in just 40 seconds. And you don't even have to break a sweat.

He shares some interesting findings 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.

“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 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.”

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

Unite Mind & Body to Achieve Health & Healing – Dr. Andrew Weil : 656
01:03:58

This episode of Bulletproof Radio was recorded live with Dr. Andrew Weil at True Food Kitchen in Phoenix, Arizona.

Dr. Weil is an internationally known pioneer and leader in integrative medicine. He is a recognized expert for his views on living a healthy lifestyle, his philosophy of healthy aging, and his critique of the future of medicine and health care. 

“I am absolutely convinced that the mind and body are one thing, they're not separable,” he says. “And that one of the greatest limitations of modern medicine is that it sees the mind and body as separate. And if it recognizes the mind at all, it doesn't admit that it can influence the body.”

A Harvard-trained medical doctor, he is the founder and director of the Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona. The Center is the leading effort in the world to develop a comprehensive curriculum in integrative medicine. He champions the use of medicinal plants and alternative medicine, as well as the reform of medical education.

Dr. Weil also is a clinical professor of medicine and a professor of Public Health at the University of Arizona and the author of more than a dozen books on health, wellness and optimal living.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hacking PTSD With Gratitude – Dr. James Gordon : 644
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.

Inflammation is Aging Your Brain – Dr. Andrew Miller : 643
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.

Dial in Your Neuroplasticity to Get Smarter – Brett Wingeier, Ph.D. : 638
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.

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.

01:02:10

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is Rajshree Patel, a former federal prosecutor who discovered Vedanta by accident and went on to become an internationally renowned teacher of its deep wisdom and dynamic practice.

“The system of Vedanta gives us the tools, the techniques, the methodologies, and the wisdom to biohack and optimize our inner life,” says Rajshree. “It is the ancient positive psychology that biohacks and optimizes life.“

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.

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.

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.

Improve Your Hair Health With Nutraceuticals – Dr. Sophia Kogan & Dr. Tess Marshall : 622
01:06:58

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guests are doctors who are dedicated to scientific research that supports drug-free solutions for hair loss and thinning hair. They say total hair wellness includes prevention as well as restoration.

Dr. Sophia Kogan is an integrative hair health expert. She is a cofounder and the chief medical strategist at Nutrafol®, where she has coauthored peer-reviewed studies on hair-thinning, hair-loss treatments and botanical medicine. 

Hair wellness  “is really about utilizing clinically proven and efficacious nutraceuticals,” says Dr. Kogan. “Basically, botanicals that have clinical efficacy to rebalance the pathways from within.” 

Dr. Tess Marshall is a naturopathic doctor and Nutrafol’s® director of Product Science & Innovations.

Kick Veggies to the Curb and Go Full Carnivore – Dr. Paul Saladino : 621
01:22:03

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’m talking with a medical doctor who says you don’t have to eat your vegetables. Literally.

“We have been in this arms race with plants as humans for millions of years," says Dr. Paul Saladino. “Plants are out to get us. They don't want us to eat them.”

Dr. Saladino is a certified functional medicine practitioner in San Diego who focuses on in-depth study of human behavior and diseases. His journey through healthcare has been quite varied. He was a practicing physician’s assistant in the field of cardiology for a number of years, then went on to earn a medical degree. He also obtained a functional medicine certification and recently completed a psychiatric residency.

Dr. Saladino's work promotes the use of science-based information to deeply understand the root causes of illness and provide individualized care that goes beyond traditional pharmacological treatments. “That's really led me to some strange and wild jungle holes of thought,” he admits.

He’s also passionate about researching connections between nutritional biochemistry and chronic disease, and the benefits of a Carnivore Diet. He believes that inflammation and autoimmune diseases are linked. “What we're dealing with in Western medicine is a tidal wave of chronic inflammation,” he says, “a tidal wave of autoimmunity.”

For the curious among you, this conversation explores a lot of “whys,” such as:

  • Why our human bodies are designed for nose-to-tail animal consumption
  • Why you feel great eating raw meat 
  • Why animal liver is a superfood 
  • Why plant molecules don’t play nice with human biology
  • Why high-protein diets are terrible
  • Why you’re cooking your bacon wrong if you can hear it sizzling
  • Why you should consider putting the brakes on your grilling


Listen on for a different perspective on how to ditch plants and amp up your meat: “I think what's cool is to be able to deliver knowledge that creates power leveraging this for better health outcomes,” Dr. Saladino says.

Upgrading Our Collective Consciousness – Matthew Modine : 620
01:21:41

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’m excited to welcome Matthew Modine. You may know him best from his acting roles in television, film and theater. He’s also an accomplished film producer, film director and screenwriter. His career has spanned nearly four decades, and he’s won numerous industry nominations and awards. 

What you may not know are the many ways in which he’s a tireless activist and environmentalist. During this wide-ranging, thought-provoking interview, our conversation touches on the moon landing, bottled water, paper straws, recycling, spirituality, reincarnation, changes in Hollywood, and much more. I learned a lot, and I hope you will, too. 

We talk about consciousness and how we can raise both our own and the collective to upgrade ourselves, our workplaces, our communities, and our planet. Here are some highlights in Matthew’s own words:


  • Responsibility:“I don't know if I was conscious of it at the time, but I knew that there was a great metaphor in what my father had told me, is that when there's a mess we all have a responsibility to do something to clean it up,”


  • Connection: “I think that spirituality is a kind of connectedness to all of the life that exists on the planet.”


  • Ocean Plastic: “The greater problem is the decomposing of those plastics. It doesn't disappear, it just becomes smaller and smaller and becomes what we call microplastics.”


  • Life:“You're a part of this great cycle of life, you know? You're not bigger or more important than it. You're maybe a keystone character in it, an important part of the chain, but you're not bigger and more important than the least of us.”


  • Shared Humanity: “It is through the singing of songs and the telling of stories that we evolve culturally, that we learn to understand other people's points of view.”

Your Brain Voltage: Measure It, Raise It, Control It – Paul Sorbo : 619
01:01:18

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’m talking with Paul Sorbo of WAVi, a company that’s bringing fast and affordable information about brain performance to everyone.

“Giving people a way to measure the way that their brain is aging is so important,” says Paul Sorbo of WAVi. “We look at heart health. We look at blood pressure. We look at colon. Literally, we look at everything. Why are we not measuring the one thing that controls all of it?”

Based in Boulder, Colorado, WAVi has integrated a mass-screening EEG device with a software platform for functional assessment in the field of mild cognitive impairment and dementia. It’s a total all-encompassing brain performance platform that has been steeped in development for nearly a decade. The resulting product is a full FDA-regulated device Class II that can easily measure biomarkers of your brain with detail and precision—in less than 12 minutes. 

We discuss WAVi’s latest research from age management to concussion information. They have found that functionality of the brain is different than everything else. I was so intrigued that I had a scan performed and filmed it. Head over to the Bulletproof YouTube channel to see the video.

Listen in to learn how assessing brain function and measuring available cognitive resources is leading to exciting new developments in the care and cure of what ails the brain. “This is ultimately to give people a way to measure how their brain ages, to measure how their brain is performing and to look at their performance metrics so that they can either improve upon it or they just have a baseline for their whole life,” Paul says. “That is invaluable information for individuals to have.”

Hacking Joy by Changing the World Around You - Ingrid Fetell Lee : 618
01:01:12

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest’s groundbreaking work on the subject of joy reveals the hidden influence of our surroundings on our emotions and well-being. 

Ingrid Fetell Lee is the author of “Joyful: The Surprising Power of Ordinary Things to Create Extraordinary Happiness” and founder of the blog/website, “The Aesthetics of Joy,” She empowers people to find more joy in life and work through purposeful and emotion-driven design of our environments.

“There's a whole field that has really been overlooked by mainstream psychology and by the sort of self-help industry that can help us use our environments to get more out of ourselves from an emotional perspective,” she says.

Our discussion explores happiness vs. joy and how to create more joy in your own life. We also look at the 10 elements of joy that resonate with nearly everyone. Afun and surprising finding shows that joy actually has a distinct shape! Ingrid explains how to recognize, feel and incorporate more joy into your everyday life. She takes us through the practice of joy spotting and how it “can be a reservoir for positivity in your life,” she says.

Ingrid’s decade of research into joy has yielded surprising results about how it shapes our internal and external lives. “There aretriggers or levers that we can build into our environment in an intentional way to influence our emotions from the outside in,” Ingrid says. 

And, while you may be able to fake a smile, you can’t fake joy. Scientists actually look at certain facial muscles to determine joy. There’s one in particular that’s not under yourconscious control, so genuine joy shows up when the muscle is activated

We talk about that research and much more in the show today, along with surprising ways that joy can improve your outlook and daily performance.

Way Better Sex Without the Pill – Dr. Jolene Brighten : 617
00:58:17

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’m welcoming Dr. Jolene Brighten back to the show. She’s a functional naturopathic medical doctor and nutritional biochemist with a focus on women’s endocrine health. Dr. Brighten is recognized as a leading expert in post-birth control syndrome and the long-term side effects associated with hormonal contraceptives.

Her new book: “Beyond The Pill: A 30-Day Plan to Support Women on Birth Control, Help Them Transition Off, and Eliminate Symptoms of Post-Birth Control Syndrome” addresses the health risks of oral contraceptives and their connection to significant hormone dysfunction.

She and I talked on episode #415 about how women’s hormones affect all parts of their bodies and brains at different ages and stages of their lives, particularly after childbirth. In this conversation, we’re going in a different direction. We cover what happens to women’s body systems while they’re on hormonal birth control and then when they stop using it. There’s also research about what the pill depletes from women’s bodies. Essential supplementation is needed while taking birth control and also when stopping.

“There's a lot more going on with women's hormonal health that lends itself to this idea of, how crazy are we to give a medication, and to shut down a woman's reproductive system, and act like that's not going to have any long-term impacts, or any impact on her body as a whole?” Dr. Brighten says in our interview.

This is a must-listen episode for both women AND men. We get into alternative birth control methods—and how well they work. And why sex tends to get better when women go off hormonal birth control. The more we’re discovering about women’s hormones, the more important it is for us to understand how hormonal health is an integral part of women’s experience—both personally and within their relationships.

Sleep is the Boss of You – Matthew Walker, Ph.D. : 616
01:10:47

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is Matthew Walker, Ph.D., aka “The Sleep Diplomat.” When it comes to matters of sleep, he does not mince words: “We’re in the midst of a “catastrophic sleep-loss epidemic,” he says. 

 

As a professor of Neuroscience and Psychologyat the University of California, Berkeley, and director of the Center for Human Sleep Science, his research examines the impact of sleep on human health and disease. He’s also the lead sleep scientist at Google. 

 

His international best-selling book, “Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams,” has sold more than 1 million copies worldwide and been translated into 34 languages. But be warned—the startling science he presents about sleep may keep you up at night.

 

Matthew has been featured on television and radio outlets, including CBS’s 60 Minutes, the National Geographic Channel, NOVA Science, NPR, and the BBC, as well as in national and international publications, and on numerous podcasts. His main-stage TED Talk—Sleep is Your Superpower—was one of the fastest to reach 1 million views within hours of release. It’s been viewed well over 5.2 million times as of this episode air date and continues to climb.

 

I was eager to have Matthew on the show to talk about our lack of sleep and examine sleep’s connection to health and brain function. Our conversation covers all that and much more. “There is no single system of the body or the brain that isn't optimally enhanced by sleep when you get it, or detrimentally impaired when you don't get enough,” he says.

Cut Your Cardio to 9 Minutes – CAR.O.L FIT AI : 615
01:00:51

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, the conversation gets right into how to hack your cardiovascular system with a personalized, high-intensity interval training bike that’s AI-powered.

You’ll find out that when it comes to cardio, it’s not about duration, it’s about intensity. And if you’re thinking, “I already knew that,” you might not know that the minimum effective dose of cardio is actually 40 seconds. Not all at once and not every day. And with AI helping out, your whole workout can be done in less than 9 minutes. Nowthat’sawesome.

“That intensity provides a very potent stimulus to your body, which releases chemicals that lead to a fitter, leaner, smarter you,” says Ratna Singh.

My guests are Ratna and Ulrich Dempfle, both serial entrepreneurs with a broad scope of experience across consumer brand consultancy, health care and start-ups.

  • Ratna co-founded and currently is the CEO of CAR.O.L, Cardiovascular Optimization Logic, in London. She’s a microbiologist by training but instead has spent all of her professional career in advertising and management consultancy in the UK and the U.S. She was McKinsey & Company's first entrepreneur-in-residence in Silicon Valley.
  • Ulrich co-founded and currently is the chief product officer and acting chief operating officer at CAR.O.L. He has experience in manufacturing and product development due to his mechanical engineering background. He’s led AI and machine learning initiatives and helped to develop the interactive exercise bike that is CAR.O.L.

Listen on to learn more about the science behind this “comically effective” cardio, how CAR.O.L fitness compares to training like HIIT and Tabata workouts, and why your cardiovascular health will thank you.

How to Show Up With Compassion & Kindness – Leon Logothetis : 614
00:54:55

This episode of Bulletproof Radio features a guest who believes three small words can change the world: Go. Be. Kind. Leon Logothetis is a world-renowned motivational speaker, adventurer and philanthropist known as “The Kindness Guy.” 

“Kindness is simply helping someone feel less alone,” Leon says. “That’s it. When you make someone feel like they matter, when you see someone, when you take someone's loneliness or depression and transform it by simply being kind, that's quite a profound way to be.”

What started as a travel adventure for him has become a kindness movement that’s been documented across five books, multiple television series, including Netflix and National Geographic International, as well as social media. 

Leon posted on his Instagram: Happiness is the new rich. Inner peace is the new success. Health is the new wealth. Kindness is the new cool.

“We are on the verge of a spiritual evolution,” he says, “and these pillars are fundamental in our lives.”

Leon wants everyone to get in on the kindness action, and his latest book is a guide to doing just that: “Go Be Kind-A Life-Changing Little Journal: 28½ Adventures Guaranteed to Make You Happier.”

With humor and candor, Leon and I talk about how essential kindness is to human connection and how teaching empathy creates kind kids. You’ll also find out how to turn off your road rage and why taking a glitter bath is a great idea.

It’s Time for Us to Disrupt and Rebuild – Ankur Jain : 613
00:56:53

This episode of Bulletproof Radio focuses on some different aspects of your life that may be influencing your overall health and making it tough for you to thrive day to day.

My guest is Ankur Jain, who asks, “What are the life needs that are hurting people the most today?” And in this episode, he gives some realistic—and doable—life hacks that you can check out today.

He’s the founder and CEO of Kairos, a venture fund that’s supporting the creation of startup companies that tackle the world’s greatest challenges. Since 2012, Kairos has helped launch and grow more than $6.5 billion dollar’s-worth of companies that address problems in healthcare, housing costs, student debt, transportation networks, childcare, elder care, and burnout and retention.

Ankur is on the forefront of tackling these problems for millennials, as well as even younger generations, because he sees an urgency in the mounting financial, work and general life pressures facing them.

  • 40% of millennials have zero savings
  • 80% of all income from millennials now is just consumed by housing, food, transportation, healthcare, and childcare. The remaining 20% for about half of millennials is going to just student loans.
  • 60% of Americans in general can't afford a $1,000 emergency expense


“These markets we're talking about—housing, childcare, healthcare—are the largest industries in the world,” Ankur explains. “They're antiquated. They're not built for the financial realities of our generation. It's time, just like any other antiquated sector, for us to go disrupt it, and go rebuild it for a way that works.”

Your Microbiome May be Misbehaving – Naveen Jain : 612
00:58:36

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is an entrepreneur, a visionary who seeks to solve some of our world’s biggest obstacles through creative innovation and collaboration, and also my good friend—Naveen Jain.

Naveen has an interesting perspective that’s changing a lot of minds and a lot of microbiomes: He believes science is asking the wrong questions about gut health, especially in relation to the chronic diseases that are plaguing so many people. The focus on “what organisms are in the gut “is stalling us; the focus on “what those organisms are producing”—now that gets us closer to real answers.

“The body doesn't care who is doing it, what it cares about is what is being done to it,” Naveen says. “And if you can figure out what these organisms are producing that's being absorbed in the human body, we will be able to actually do something about it. Because then, it becomes math and chemistry. Once you know the biochemical activities of the chemicals that are there, you can adjust those chemicals.”

We’re going to get into some new science about how people can change their gut bacteria and know what's going on. You’ll learn that you actually want more species—and a more diverse set of species—in your gut. It will improve your health and will probably make you live a lot longer. 

And by the way, Naveen’s a regular on Bulletproof Radio, most recently on episode: #541: From Inside Your Gut to Outer Space: Moonshots with Naveen Jain. You can hear my other conversations with him on episode #452: Listen to Your Gut and Decide Your Own Destiny and episode #382: The Microorganisms in Our Body That Keep Us Alive. I always get great feedback from listeners about our conversations, so I’m always happy to talk to him again about more gut health.

A Bit More About Naveen:

  • He is the founder of several successful companies, including Viome (that I talk about a lot), Moon Express, Bluedot, TalentWise, Intelius and InfoSpace. He’s also a trustee of the board at the X PRIZE Foundation, an organization that since 1994 has designed and launched 17 prizes for industry changing technologies in the domain areas of Space, Oceans, Learning, Health, Energy, Environment, Transportation, Safety and Robotics. Naveen is the title of the Women’s Safety X PRIZE, that empowers women around the world. 
  • He just launched a brand-new podcast called Moonshots with Naveen Jain. “Intellectual curiosity is what moves humans forward and humanity forward,” he says—and he’s hosting conversations with the world’s leading thinkers and entrepreneurs to bring their insights and ideas to you.

Every Little Enzyme Does Its Magic – BiOptimizers : 611
01:12:35

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’m welcoming back Wade Lightheart and Matt Gallant. They are the “we fix digestion” guys who co-founded BiOptimizers.

Wade is a former three-time Canadian natural bodybuilding champion. Matt is an experienced strength and conditioning coach for professional athletes, a self-defense instructor, and has been formulating supplements for more than a decade. 

Last summer, we discussed enzymes and digestive health. You’ll definitely want to catch episode #515—How to BiOptimize Your Gut & Digestion. And today, we’re going to talk more about the power of enzymes and their role in a ketogenic diet.

“Well, the thing with enzymes,” Matt says, “is if you take them empty stomach, they become metabolic. If you take them with food, they're digestive. … When we're eating, the food needs to be broken down either into glycogen, amino acids, or fatty acids. That's what we need, and that’s what our bodies run on. And if we can't do that, then we can have health issues.”

So, take a listen as the conversation touches on how essential enzymes are to your microbiome. We talk bile, poop, stomach acid, glucose absorption, fat cells and inflammation. Activated charcoal, probiotics and carbs get a mention, too. 

I’m convinced that enzymes matter for making you who you are.

Curb Your Adrenaline, Improve Your Health – Dr. Michael Platt : 610
01:11:20

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I asked Dr. Michael Platt to come on the show to discuss all things adrenaline.

Dr. Platt is board certified in Internal Medicine and has nearly four decades of experience working with patients in varied clinical settings from medical groups to elder care medicine to health research. He’s currently the president of Platt Wellness Center in Rancho Mirage, California, where he specializes in bio-identical hormones, hormone balancing and the causation of illness.

We talk about his focus on treating health conditions caused by excess adrenaline, which can include fibromyalgia, autism, ADHD, bipolar disorder, depression, anger, weight gain, and addictions, among others—and how progesterone plays a major role in the solution.

“What people don't understand is that the primary reason why the body releases adrenaline is to provide fuel to the brain,” says Dr. Platt. “You can see from a survival standpoint, the body always wants to make sure the brain has enough fuel. It's normal for people to release adrenaline at certain times, but I use the term adrenaline dominance to indicate where those people have excess amounts of adrenaline, to the point that it actually has clinical consequences.”

Our conversation covers an assortment of questions, such as:

  • Is adrenal fatigue real?
  • Can post-partum depression be eliminated with progesterone?
  • Is fibromyalgia pain a build-up of lactic acid in the muscles?
  • Is ADHD really about interest, rather than focus?
  • Should you be intermittent fasting if you have excess adrenaline?
  • Can you control adrenaline by controlling insulin?
  • Does blocking adrenaline prevent or eliminate stress?


Listen on to find out some interesting answers to these and many other questions during our discussion. Enjoy the show!

The Ball is in Your Court: Biohacking with The Bryan Bros. : 609
00:49:44

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, you’ll meet tennis phenoms Bob and Mike Bryan, aka The Bryan Bros. Born three minutes apart, the twins have been in sync ever since—both on and off the court. They are American professional doubles tennis players, gold-and bronze-winning Olympians, and are the most successful tennis duo of all time.

The two have won a record number of tour titles (118 at the time this episode airs) and have been finalists on 58 other occasions. They have a career Super Slam and 16 Grand Slam titles overall, which is more than any men's team in the Open Era.

The twins’ parents began coaching them at the age of two. The brothers turned pro in 1998 after attending Stanford University and winning two NCAA championships. Since then, they have amassed 118 ATP Tour Titles together, including a record 18 Grand Slams. Their Gold Medal win the 2012 Olympic games made them the only team in ATP history to hold all four Grand Slam titles and an Olympic Gold medal. The Bryans also have achieved the ATP Tour year-end No. 1 ranking for a record 10 years, and Mike recently celebrated his 500th week at No. 1 on the ATP Tour doubles rankings.

Their success is the result of a combination of hard work, mutual respect, and a passion for the game of tennis. (It also helps that one of the twins has a 140 mph lefty serve!)

But both Mike and Bob have suffered injuries that threatened to end their careers, including Bob’s recent hip surgery. At the age of 40, no one thought they would come back and continue to win, but they have—several times over. They’ve changed up their training regimen and put serious focus on recovery.

“You've got to set these goals and really work every day to do it,” Bob says. “It's being professional in every aspect of your life. I'm trying just to dial on the health as best as I can because when I'm done, I want to be able to play with my kids. I want to be able to walk down the street and not be limping or needing metal on every joint. That's my goal: to retire healthy but keep playing as long as we can.”

Today’s episode is going to be a good one as we talk about all the ways these professional athletes biohack to their advantage, how music keeps them in sync, and how they are helping at-risk kids.

Not-So-Science Fiction: Extending Your Healthspan Gets Real – James Clement : 608
01:02:28

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I take a deep dive into my favorite topics—anti-aging and longevity—with James Clement, who is leading research and groundbreaking developments in these areas from a particularly personal perspective.

A self-described transhumanist, he’s now is the president and director of Betterhumans, the world’s first specifically-transhumanist bio-medical research organization. James’ view of longevity is focused on healthspan and the humane aspect of being human over the long haul. He doesn’t want to cheat death, he wants to extend life in the best way possible.

James has an interesting backstory as a former international tax lawyer who became an entrepreneur and then a scientist. He’s currently running anti-aging clinical trials and engaged in anti-aging molecular biology research with top science researchers. He participates in the clinical trials, too.

Join us as we talk about the current science biggies: senolytics, NAD, exosomes and rapamycin, and what makes supercentarians so super.

“There are two simultaneous things that we have to do to live longer,” James says, “and I divide it up as first we have to get to 100. Getting to 100 is, for those of us who weren't lucky enough to inherit supercentenarian genomes, it means doing everything we can in our lifestyle to live longer.”

“And then the idea of ‘how are we going to live beyond 100?’” he continues, “There's going to be a lot more that we have to do and that's going to be where more radical therapies, which include nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals, lifestyle changes, but also genome editing, will all be necessary to get us far beyond the 100 threshold.”

How to Use Mind-Wandering for a Better Brain - Jonathan Schooler, Ph.D. : 607
00:55:07

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, we get into the pros and cons of mind-wandering—why it’s good for you, when it’s too much, and how to use it to your advantage.

My guest is Jonathan Schooler Ph.D., a professor of Psychological and Brain Sciences at the University of California-Santa Barbara. He has studied mind-wandering extensively, and his research includes mindfulness, cognitive psychology, memory, and consciousness. 

“The idea is that when people are mind-wandering, it's basically sort of stirring the pot and allowing unconscious associations to reorganize and consolidate, and allowing new things to come to mind,” Dr. Schooler says.

He explores topics that intersect philosophy and psychology, such as how fluctuations in people’s awareness of their experience mediate mind-wandering and how exposing individuals to philosophical positions alters their behavior.

Our conversation goes deep into mind-wandering, why we often have a deficit of it, and why it’s vital to human performance.

Listen on to find out:

  • How to identify four types of mind-wandering;
  • How meta-awareness helps you realize when you’re mind-wandering instead of paying attention;
  • Why mind-wandering is important to the creative process; and
  • Why the most effective techniques for helping with mind-wandering and focus are mindfulness and meditation. 

Stick with this episode all the way through because I’ve added a special feature and a bonus topic. Enjoy the show!

Break Your Expectations, Get Closer to Your Heart – Kyle Cease : 606
01:01:40

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’m interviewing a guy I just met at the Consumer Health Summit in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Kyle Cease is a well-known comedian who has two No. 1 Comedy Central specials to his credit. He’s also a “New York Times” best-selling author of “I Hope I Screw This Up” and a transformational speaker who helps people release anxiety and fear on stage. 

Kyle comes from an extended family of entertainers. He started asking to do stand-up routines for his classmates in second grade. By 18, he was on a wild ride more than 250 nights a year headlining comedy shows. He did this for years at the expense of his physical and mental health. A bout of pneumonia took him down after a particularly brutal touring schedule; he developed crippling stage fright out of nowhere; and he was disparaged by the comedian community of which he’d been such an integral part. After that, he reassessed everything about himself and the life he’d been living.

I did not know who Kyle was until I met him at the summit. I sat next to him at dinner and thought “This guy has an amazing brain where we can talk about humor, and we can talk about how that turns into letting people really talk about what's going on.” 

His wit is sharp, and his improv is hands-down amazing. Prepared remarks? Nah. Bullet points on a presentation? Nope. He’s the master of riffing and creative flow in the moment. And while he may be spontaneous, he’s deeply grounded in self-awareness. He believes strongly and says so. So instead of jokes, he shares insights about our all-so-common human condition during our interview. (As well as his foray into raw veganism and tuning into his body vibrations.) Here are some of his zingers:

  • Happiness: “I find that one illusion that every human is in, is the illusion of when something happens, I'll be happy.”
  • Expectations: “I have a belief that no one can break your heart, but they can break your expectations.”
  • Creativity: “I believe if you're not continually creating, your mind will creatively sabotage you.”
  • Life: “A lot of us spend a lot of our life trying to protect a life that we're not living.”


You’re going to learn a lot today from this interview, because Kyle uses humor in a way that gets way underneath what's really going on with you.

The Dark Side of EMFs – Peter Sullivan : 605
00:54:53

Peter Sullivan, CEO and founder of Clear Light Ventures, is a major environmental health funder who focuses on two things that I care a lot about: one is toxins and the other one is wireless safety. I actually really like my wireless devices. I think they're really useful, but I also know that they are not without a dark side.

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, Peter shares how he recovered from the effects of high levels of wireless and EMF exposure, as well as mercury poisoning. He’s also spent the last 15 years successfully recovering his two sons from autism and sensory issues.

His efforts are now focused on raising awareness about the known health effects of wireless radiation and EMF (electromagnetic fields), both of which are listed as group 2B carcinogens by the World Health Organization. Peter is one of the leading funders in the country in this area of research, funding work at Harvard, Stanford, University of California-Berkeley and several leading environmental health non-profits.

“What we need to talk about in this area in general—and this goes for autism and chronic disease—is that it's total load, that it's never one thing.” Peter says. This is a mistake I made. This is a mistake everybody makes. You start out thinking it's genetic. Then you do diet and you start stuff. You try to find the one thing.The human body, unfortunately, is so much redundancy that by the time you see a symptom you've had a cascade of failures.”

“We're pretty awesome beings, but we're not above the laws of physics,” he says.

The magnetic fields that are in our houses surround us but come from different angles and different frequencies. They create an interference pattern and can really disrupt sleep and many other biological functions. Peter and I talk through many examples of health issues disrupted by tech and how to take safety measures to reduce your exposure. We’re both convinced that in the future, safe technology is going to be a requirement—think seat belts in automobiles. We’re not there yet, but we're going to continue working toward making our now-omnipresent tech and devices safer.

Healthy Aging Begins and Ends in the Gut – Dr. Steven Gundry : 604
01:00:17

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’m excited to once again be talking to Dr. Steven Gundry, renowned heart surgeon, celebrity doctor, medical researcher and a New York Times best-selling author. 

You may know Dr. Gundry from either his previous appearance on the show, episode #417, or by his book, “The Plant Paradox: The Hidden Dangers in “Healthy” Food That Cause Disease and Weight Gain.” He’s a leading expert on the lectin-free diet and believes we have the ability to heal ourselves through nutrition when certain dietary obstacles are removed. 

He’s now tackling gut health and many of the myths surrounding healthy aging in “The Longevity Paradox: How to Die Young at a Ripe Old Age.” And he starts with the premise that bacteria, rather than our genes, makes us complex and defines our human-ness.

We cover many facets of the microbiome that are contributing to how we age, and Dr. Gundry gives it to us straight:

  • “Aging, at its core, is inflammation,” he says. “I, and others, believe that inflammation is from leaky gut, period.”
  • “The deal with getting younger is your gut wall is your skin turned inside out,” he says. “What happens on the surface of your gut is reflected on the surface of your skin, they are the same organ.”
  • “The reason we're all so screwed up is that our (gut) soil is also dead, just like our soil that our crops are growing in and no wonder we've got such a problem,” he says.

Listen in on this informative discussion about how our bodies are wired to deal with environmental stressors; what long-term health looks like in other parts of the world; and how you can improve your own gut health.

Mushrooms Are Your New Anti-Aging Strategy – Life Cykel : 603
00:47:39

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, we're going to talk about mushrooms, but not the magic kind. We're going to talk about the other kind of mushrooms. The kind that has medicinal value, the kind that, depending on which species you use, can do almost anything a lot of the big pharmaceutical drugs can do,as well as things that are really important for our soil, for our food supply, and things like that.

Your cells, mitochondria, immune system, sleep patterns, inflammation, nerve growth pattern, and energy levels all benefit from mushrooms. These fungi are full of compounds and nutrients that your body will love. There’s a whole lot of science behind this now.

Julian Mitchell—co-founder and CEO of the Australian-based company Life Cykel—and his team are doing amazing work with mushrooms as innovative food sources and medicinals in Australia.

For day-to-day use, you’ll definitely want to go with cooked, not raw mushrooms. For those of you who aren’t fans of actually eating mushrooms, there’s an option for you, too: “Having it as a tincture makes it very easy to add to a coffee, add to a tea, add to a smoothie,” Julian says. “It's quite tasteless and at the same time micro-dosing it in small amounts straight into your mouth is a great way to have it as well and absorb it straight into your blood system.”

You’ll also learn about the naturally (sweet!) ingredient infused into the Life Cykel tinctures and powders. It’s a native Australian fruit rich in antioxidants and antiviral properties that amplifies the benefits of the mushrooms.

And for those of you who are chasing sleep, I found nothing else that increased my REM sleep as much as the specific extracts of one species, which I’ll tell you about during the show.

Mushrooms are having a moment—and likely many more. Here’s what Julian says:


  • “Mushrooms and mushroom-based foods are going to play a huge role in the future of food. They grow quickly requiring very little resources in terms of water, power, and land. They have an amazing nutritional profile, and of course, they are 100% natural.”


  • “The more we look to the natural world for solutions, the better off we're going to be and so, mushrooms and the fungi kingdom are hugely important to our evolution.”


  • “Mushrooms are almost an uncharted continent, with infinite applications not just in food but in biotechnology.”


It's going to be a fascinating episode. You're going to find some things you didn't know about some of the mushrooms you already eat. As well as some of the mushrooms you probably should be eating but aren't. And I'm also going to ask the hard questions about why mushrooms suck.

How to Master Your Emotions – Joan Rosenberg : 602
00:49:38

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, you’ll hear from an expert psychologist who is known as an innovative thinker, trainer and speaker.

Joan Rosenberg, Ph.D., guides individuals to achieve their highest potential by helping them create, master and sustain desired life changes. Her newest book: “90 Seconds to a Life You Love: How to Master Your Difficult Feelings to Cultivate Lasting Confidence, Resilience, and Authenticity,” puts you in control of your own emotions.

“My approach is centered on helping people experience and move through eight unpleasant feelings (or emotional states),” Joan says. “Sadness, shame, helplessness, anger, vulnerability, embarrassment, disappointment and frustration.”

Within those eight, you’ll find a commonality.

“The single most important thing I can do is to recognize someone's pain, and just in essence, hold a mirror up to it, even if it sounds like you're saying the things that are so obvious,” Joan says. “It has a huge impact of calming someone else's nervous system down.”

And you’ll learn the art of productive confrontation.

“If it’s coming from a place that’s positive, kind, and well-intended, people will feel more well-understood and validated,” Joan explains. “Confrontation is one of the deepest forms of empathy.”

Joan puts it all out there and doesn’t let anyone off the hook—asking you to take a look at your life stories and then making sense of them through a series of questions that get right down into the impact and meaning of your life experiences.

Dealing with unpleasant feelings, is, well, unpleasant. So, let’s get to it and hack those emotions.

Get a Grip on Your Blood Pressure – Zona Health : 601
00:51:30

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, we take a deep dive into a part of your biology you may not be paying enough attention to.

Your blood pressure. If it’s running too high for too long, it puts you at risk for heart disease and stroke.

The American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association recently redefined hypertension as a blood pressure reading of 130/80 or higher. Previously, that threshold was 140/90. That change resulted in 31 million more people falling into a range of hypertension—meaning about 105 million U.S. adults age 20 and older.

Putting the power of health directly into people’s hands always makes me happy, so I talked with Mark Young, CEO of Zona Health, about a solution.

Lifestyle factors play a key role in keeping blood pressure within a healthy range—diet makes a difference and so does physical activity. And medication doesn’t have to be inevitable. For those of you whose numbers may be higher than optimal, there’s a software-controlled, handheld device available that uses a series of uniquely-calibrated algorithms to determine the perfect hand grip exercise for each individual user.

Hand grip? Well, yes. 

“It's a medical device that uses isometric exercise to ultimately lower blood pressure,” Mark says.

“The Zona is helping you do exactly what your body's naturally programmed to do,” he continues. “The device is not solving the problem; the device is training your body to solve its own problem.” (It’s also hacking time, taking only minutes per day to use.)

The cool factor? This device technology is based on decades of g-force experiments done by the U.S. Air Force. And did I mention the connection between nitric oxide production and erectile dysfunction? We chat about that, too.

The Good Life: Peace, Strength and Wisdom – Arianna Huffington : 600
00:37:09

Here we are—the 600th episode of Bulletproof Radio! This incredibly special show features Dave Asprey’s fireside chat with Arianna Huffington at the Upgrade Labs 6th Annual Biohacking Conference. The conference keynotes featured amazing people who are renowned thinkers, leaders and experts within their chosen fields and industries.

Arianna Huffington is one of those people. She’s a remarkable business leader, author and the founder and CEO of Thrive Global — an organization that’s on a mission to unlock human potential. “The ultimate disruption is changing the way we work and live,” she says.

  • In this delightful conversation—full of humor, wisdom and straight-up life advice—Dave and Arianna talk about prioritizing health, behavior change, habit stacking, the advance of AI, shifting workplace culture, and much more: “What I love is finding unexpected ways to work with people,” she says.
  • The discussion gets real about the damaging effects of stress and burnout: “It has become my mission to help wake up the world to the importance of sleep, of recovery, of recharging and realizing that, actually, if we want peak performance, these are tools in the tool box that we need,” Arianna says.
  • And they touch on the vital importance of human connection in an increasingly technical world: “Why not grow our eulogy virtues—not just our resume virtues—throughout our lives?” she says. To which Dave replies, “That’s a powerful statement.”

We’re excited that you’ll be listening to what Arianna shares about the work she’s doing in the world to touch people’s hearts and souls. Enjoy the show!

Heal Yourself from the Inside Out – Dr. William Li : 599
01:14:10

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, you’ll find out why “We are at a turning point in the fight against disease.” Those words begin Dr. William Li’s new book, “EAT TO BEAT DISEASE: The New Science of How Your Body Can Heal Itself.”

Dr. Li is an experienced internal medicine physician and a research scientist, specifically a vascular biologist. He’s been conducting angiogenesis research and clinical analysis—angiogenesis is the development of new blood vessels—for more than two decades and is considered to be one of the world’s leading experts in the field.

He’s also known for providing various food remedies for the prevention and treatment of advanced medical conditions like cancer, diabetes, blindness, and heart disease. And he’s most interested in the common denominators of disease—what unites and connects diseases across body systems and across human populations.

Today’s conversation focuses on the importance of taking a systems-based approach to health and the prevention, treatment, and reversal of disease. “That's where the tipping point comes,” says Dr. Li, “because when we think that we can prevent the disease or reverse the disease, we're suddenly in a completely different place than healthcare has been for 150 years.”

Dr. Li gives practical examples of how foods used as medicine can boost the body’s five main defense systems: angiogenesis, regeneration, microbiome, DNA, and the immune system. “Our health is not simply the absence of disease,” he says. “Our health is the result of our hardwired defense systems that protect us from the day we're born until our very last breath. And guess what? Food can actually activate those health defenses.”

Want to know how to downturn chronic inflammation or right-size your microbiome? Then this is the episode for you!

There’s So Much ‘Wow’ in Every Moment – Tim Chang : 598
01:01:28

I spotted my friend Tim Chang, an experienced investor and global executive, at the Consumer Health Summit and took the opportunity to ask the man once called “The Hottest Abs In Silicon Valley” how he stays in a high-performance state. Tim is passionate about syncing technology with wisdom to boost consciousness and fitness across body, mind and spirit. (And from his photo above, you can see he plays bass in a band—multiple bands, in fact.)

In this fun, free-wheeling episode of Bulletproof Radio, the hour spins by with solid suggestions about living your best life and tangible takeaways for well-being. We discuss modern culture topic by topic in an engrossing conversation that spans email, messaging apps, time burdens, FOMO, obligation, the Eisenhower Matrix, think time, vulnerability, struggle, time as a luxury, the attention economy, cognitive health, mental bandwidth, haters, social media, slow tech—and much more.

It all makes great sense and great listening!


Tim’s Quick Takes

  • Strength Training and HIIT: “I just want to get my stuff done and go.”
  • Meditation: “ There's something magic at minute 40 or 45 where your mind just tires itself out of yapping at itself.”
  • Intermittent Fasting: “Essentially, I just skipped breakfast.”
  • Five-day Fasts: “It's the equivalent of a nutritional meditation.”
  • Hipster Spirituality Culture: “They're literally out Instagramming each other.”
  • Meetings: “Just don’t schedule.”
  • Vulnerability: “The ultimate superpower.”
  • Life: “Nobody's crushing it, everyone's a mess.”


Tim leads consumer technology investments at Mayfield, focusing on next-gen Commerce & Marketplaces, Communities, Health & Wellness and Digital Media. He has been twice named on the Forbes Midas List of Top 100 venture capitalists and the AlwaysOn Power Players of top investors. He received his MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business, graduating in the top 10% of his class. He also holds an MSEE and BSEE in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan. 

“I partner with entrepreneurs unleashing the power of communities and networks, using real-time data combined with personal storytelling, to disrupt the worlds of commerce, health and wellness, and also those innovating on new platforms such as messaging, VR/AR, and smart devices,” he explains.

Face Your Money Fears Once and For All – Ken Honda : 597
01:00:01

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, Dave dives into gratitude, giving, and a “no-fear about money” mindset. His guest, Ken Honda, is several time zones away in Tokyo. Ken is a bestselling author of self-development books in Japan. He’s written more than 50 books and sold more than 7 million copies of his titles since 2001. His books have been translated and published in more than 20 countries. And at more than 23 million downloads, his “Dear Ken” podcast is one of the most-listened-to podcasts in Japan.

Ken began writing books about life work, life balance, wealth, and happiness in his early 30s after retiring from an accounting career. His financial expertise comes from owning and managing several businesses, including an accounting company, a management consulting firm, and a venture capital corporation.

His writings bridge the topics of self-help and finance, and focus on creating and generating personal wealth and happiness through deeper self-honesty. His perspective on business differs distinctly from other titles in the "self-help" or "finance" genre in both Japanese and American publications. He provides ongoing support to people who want to change their lives by offing mentoring programs, therapeutic healing workshops, business seminars, and correspondence courses. 

“You don't have to be super wealthy to be happy, because happiness happens in the moment,” says Ken. “Once you appreciate your money, you start appreciating your family, what you have, and everything in life. So, it's very Zen. Once in this state of gratitude, your life shifts, and that opens a door to a new possibility of attracting more fun things in your life. It's nothing to do with how much money you have or how much money you make.”

Ken covers established a new approach to money in his newest book—“Happy Money: The Japanese Art of Making Peace with Your Money.” So, if you want to face your fears about money, improve the relationship you have with your money and learn how generosity begets generosity, this is the podcast for you!

Stop Fighting Your Environment & Hack Your Homeostasis – Scott Carney : 596
00:59:30

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, Dave welcomes Scott Carney, an award-winning investigative journalist and anthropologist whose reporting has taken him to some of the most dangerous and unlikely corners of the world. He’s also a New York Times bestselling author “What Doesn’t Kill Us: How Freezing Water, Extreme Altitude, and Environmental Conditioning Will Renew Our Lost Evolutionary Strength.” This book traces our evolutionary journey back to a time when survival depended on how well we adapted to the environment around us. 

Scott has spent time with some of the most extreme people on Earth who do the most extreme things, such as controller of the cold, Wim Hof; legendary big-wave surfer Laird Hamilton, and HIIT creator Brian Mackenzie.

“As a journalist, you have a couple of options for how you cover someone,” Scott says. “You can go in there and sit back and say, "Okay, I will watch you from a distance. I will watch you breathing or whatever, and I will write an article about that," or you can jump in and give it an experience.”

That pique’s Dave interest more than a little, as he notes Scott’s curiosity and “willingness to go to the ends of the earth to figure out cool stuff.” Scott’s curiosity gets a boost from learning “neural grammar,” which allows better control of the parasympathetic nervous system. Because our system craves homeostasis, he says, it’s going to find it naturally because of the environmental stimulus to which you’re being exposed.

Listen in on this conversation about human endurance, why effortless comfort is hindering our health and how “the wedge” can flip your neurological script.

Better Sleep Month Part 4 – Rest, Reset, and Rejuvenate Your (Circadian) Rhythm : 595
00:52:04

Sleep—who’s getting some? Not all of you, it seems, since sleep is one of the most asked about topics. Quality and quantity matter, and you want real answers.

We’ve created a multimedia sleep series for you as part of Better Sleep Month. Each Tuesday in May, you’ll find compelling interviews from Bulletproof Radio, cool articles from our blog, and a batch of lively videos. we’re bringing you the best Bulletproof tips and tools we have, so you can start sleeping better. Listen, read or view—whatever helps you get your own piece of the night.


This is part 4 of a four-part Better Sleep Month series on Bulletproof Radio. On this reworked and combined episode, we’re featuring leading circadian rhythm researcher and sleep expert Dr. Satchin Panda.

In the past two decades, there have been three major discoveries about circadian rhythms that have transformed how we think about health. The first one: Every organ (in the body) has its own clock. The second one: Blue light is a strong agent in sunlight that resets our clock or having exposure to blue light at night can distract the clock. And the third one: How food timing affects our clock.

“This is the only field that's actually studying “what is health?”, because all other fields of biomedical research study “what is disease?”, Dr. Panda says.

Under Attack: The Evolution of Ancestral Nutrition – Nora Gedgaudas : 594
00:45:47

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, Dave is live at PaleoFX with Nora Gedgaudas, an internationally acclaimed keto and ancestrally based nutrition specialist and author who has dedicated her career to combating “diseases of civilization,” such as cancer, metabolic disorders, mood disorders, and cognitive decline.

Known as one of the early adopters of the low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet, Nora combines extensive research with evolutionary physiology, biochemistry, metabolism, nutrition, and chronic and degenerative disease for mind-body health and longevity. 

  • On Digestion: “Our digestive system is far more similar to carnivores than it is herbivores,” Nora says. “We don't have a fermented base digestive system. Only 20% of our digestive system is devoted to fermentation. We have a hydrochloric acid base digestive system. We are designed to derive nutrients from animals that have synthesized these nutrients for us. We don't have any possible means of optimizing the extraction of nutrients from plants.”


Frustrated with what she’s seen happening within the paleo and ketogenic movements, she created her own term: Primalgenic®. Her newest work is based on 12 pillars, in which she’s combined more than two decades of knowledge of our ancestral roots and modern science to create an optimized nutritional approach to health and well-being.

  • On Carbs: “None of us are really designed to handle high amounts of carbohydrates,” Nora says. “We're just not. There's no scientifically established human dietary requirement for carbohydrate.”


Nora’s combined areas of expertise include being a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, a board-certified Holistic Nutrition consultant, a board-certified clinical Neurofeedback Specialist, and a Certified Gluten Practitioner. She maintains a private practice in Portland, Oregon.

  • On Wellness: “I've worked with suffering people for over two decades now,” Nora says. “So much of it is unnecessary. And I think people are being victimized by misinformation and disinformation and predatory advertising and all kinds of crap. I'm really, really committed to making sure that people get good information that can make a measurable difference in the way that they feel and function in this world.”


From food label laws to interstratified fat to “settled” science and angry vegans, you don’t want to miss this episode. (And don’t miss Nora’s guest column, on the Bulletproof Blog.}

“Sleep ends up being a leading indicator and sometimes activity can be a lagging indicator,” says Harpreet Rai, co-founder of Oura Ring. “If you get enough sleep and your heart rate variability is high and you're in that parasympathetic state, you're going to perform better in activity the next day. And there are numerous studies that actually show that. I think trying to get people in this mentality of, “focusing on tomorrow today by focusing on sleep first,” gets you ready in this mindset for what's going to happen tomorrow.”

From Farm to Fork: The Art of Grass-fed Meats – Grass Roots Farmers' Cooperative : 592
01:00:34

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, Dave talks with Cody Hopkins at the 6th Annual Biohacking Conference. Cody is a physicist turned first-generation farmer turned founder and CEO of Grass Roots Farmers’ Cooperative.

He has spent more than a dozen years developing a vertically integrated sustainable livestock farm with an unwavering vision of creating a farming business that is good for the animals, good for the environment and good for customers.

Cody and his wife, Andrea Todt, established Grass Roots Farmers’ Cooperative in 2014, with their own Falling Sky Farm in Arkansas as one of the founding farms. Grass Roots is a collective partnership of more than 20 small farms across the U.S—in places such as Oregon, Nevada, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Texas, Arkansas, and North Carolina—fostering respectful farming practices and love for the land.

“Grass Roots Cooperative is on a mission to change the way meat is produced and consumed in this country,” Cody says. “Healthy animals raised outdoors with sunlight, fresh air, and clean grass—no hormones, antibiotics, or GMOs needed.”

The goal is to reach 100 farms over the next three years.

Farms in the cooperative follow a single set of the highest quality standards with a focus on five priorities:

  • Health & Nutrition
  • Sustainability
  • Farmer to You
  • Butchered by Hand
  • Transparency

“As customers are demanding more and more transparency and higher and higher quality meat that's healthier for them, where the animals are treated better, it's creating a whole new opportunity for farmers,” Cody says. “We’re always looking for those symbiotic relationships, where you're putting an animal in an environment that it's evolved to live in, versus trying to force them into some other system.”

The outcome? A naturally balanced ecosystem, soil regeneration and productive pastures.

Grass Roots’ aim is to provide the best quality and most nutritious meat in a manner that is humane, transparent, sustainable and fair. Its farms are the first in the United States to use blockchain technology to trace their products from farm to fork. This allows customers to be confident in the origin and quality of the meat they buy. Grass Roots also has an open-farm policy and is completely transparent at every stage.

“Let's focus on supporting small scale farmers that are doing this right,” Cody says. “That really is what it comes back to for me, being able to connect with those small farmers, support them, and let the customers vote with their dollar on the kind of food system they want to support.”

 And that, says Dave, is “actually how food is supposed to work.”

If you want to get in touch with your dreams, you’ve got to be sleeping more. “We dream about every 90 minutes,” Dr. Barrett says, “But each dream period gets much longer than the preceding one, so if you sleep four hours instead of eight, you're not getting half your dream time. You're getting only 20 percent of your dream time. So, short sleeping hurts us in a lot of ways, but it impacts dreaming sleep more than the other forms of sleep.”

Challenging Perception and Our Conscious Experience – Anil Seth : 590
01:06:53

In this intriguing episode of Bulletproof Radio, Dave welcomes Anil Seth, a leading researcher, writer, and public speaker on consciousness science, neuroscience, and artificial intelligence. Anil has broad experience communicating new ideas from the forefront of research in these areas, which confront some of humanity’s greatest questions and challenges.

In his work, Anil seeks to understand the biological basis of consciousness by bringing together research across neuroscience, mathematics, artificial intelligence, computer science, psychology, philosophy and psychiatry. He’s currently a professor of Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience at the University of Sussex and founding co-director of the Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science.

As well as pioneering this interdisciplinary approach, Anil is recognized for his influential theories about how conscious experiences of the world and self are (distinct) forms of ‘controlled hallucinations.’ His TEDtalk “How Your Brain Hallucinates Your Conscious Reality” has been viewed nearly 7.4M million times.

This episode will up-end what you think about perception and reality—and how much, or little, control, we really have. Here’s a sneak peek at the conversation:

About Perception

  • “Perception doesn't come from the outside in. It really goes the other direction. It comes from the inside out.”
  • “The purpose of perception is not to figure out objectively what's out there in the world. The purpose of perception is to enable our adaptive behavior.”
  • “We need to develop ways of training our perception.”

About Sensory Experience

  • “Language carves up the sensory world in some more bits.”
  • “The same things in your brain are happening when you're having a hallucination, perceiving something that other people don't, as when you engage in normal perception. It's just some aspects of the balance has changed.”
  • “As humans, we don't just passively experience a stream of sensory information. We're always actively sampling our worlds.”

Beyond Ketofast: Your Need-to-Know Guide – Part 2 with Dr. Joseph Mercola : 588
01:02:54

This is part 2 of a two-part bonus episode of Bulletproof Radio. Be sure to listen to part 1, Ketofast: Your Need-to-Know Guide #588.

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, the conversation takes a turn into the topics Dr. Mercola presented recently at the Upgrade Labs 6th Annual Biohacking Conference. Here are some highlights:

  • Eating after dark is not a good strategy, but there might be a window if you’re up late into the night.
  • REM sleep changes as you age
  • The value of a float tank
  • Heat shock proteins are a corollary to autophagy.
  • Chronic keto is not in your best interest, “Your body needs carbohydrates on a regular basis,” says Dr. Mercola.
  • The importance of insulin
  • Ideal body fat percentages for men and women
  • Recommended lab tests to quantify yourself
  • Stimulating your immune system
  • Wireless frequencies affect every life form on the planet

Dr. Mercola is an osteopathic physician who began exploring the world of natural medicine in the early 1990s after spending several years working within the conventional medicine model. His whole-person approach to health and his focus on preventive care led him to pioneer health information on the Internet where www.mercola.com has been consistently rated a top natural health website since launching 22 years ago.

He’s also a prolific author of more than a dozen books, three of which are New York Times bestsellers. He newest book is titled: KETOFAST: Rejuvenate Your Health with a Step-by-Step Guide to Timing Your Ketogenic Meals. He’s also authored numerous medical articles and is frequently featured on national media outlets.

Dr. Mercola has been interviewed before on Bulletproof Radio and contributed to Bulletproof articles. Check out the show notes below for those links.

Ketofast: Your Need-to-Know Guide – Part 1 with Dr. Joseph Mercola : 588
00:50:43

This is part 1 of a two-part bonus episode of Bulletproof Radio. Dave and Dr. Joseph Mercola go from fasting to flying in an immensely specific conversation. They go deep into details, while at the same time offering up practical tips.

This is just some of what you’ll learn:

  • Which type of fasting may be right for you
  • How polyphenols activate autophagy
  • How supplement and nutrient absorption rates differ by delivery method and why intrarectal methods are best for some
  • Why metabolic flexibility matters
  • Why mitochondria up- or down-regulate their functions, depending on the antioxidants they are producing
  • About the best cellular level travel hacks and the shenanigans your ketones and mitochondria are up to in the air. When ionizing radiation damage sets free radicals careening off your body’s runway, Dave and Dr. Mercola explain how a bevy of acronyms—PARP, ADP, NAD, DNA—get involved to repair the damage.

Interpersonal Neurobiology: A Systems-Thinking Approach to Optimal Health – Dr. Dan Siegel : 587
01:13:47

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, you’ll find out how interpersonal neurobiology looks at the vital connections among:

  • Our mind;
  • Our embodied brain (meaning the functions of our body, biochemical functions, physiological functions, neural functions); and
  • Our relationships (with other people, with nature, with the planet).


These, say Dr. Dan Siegel, “form the foundation for how we try to understand what life on Earth is about, what human life is, and how we can try to direct it in a way that supports well-being.” Putting identity, attachment, and survival together literally shapes the health of your body.

Dr. Siegel comes to Bulletproof Radio fresh off the stage at the 6th Annual Biohacking Conference at the Beverly Hilton where he gave an exceptional presentation on the science and practice of presence. For more than two decades, he’s taught clinical psychiatry at UCLA and is a best-selling author and co-author of more than a dozen books. He’s the founding co-director of the UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center and the founder and executive director of the Mindsight Institute, as well as the medical director of the Lifespan Learning Institute, and the founding editor of the Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology.

The particular field of neurobiology he discusses with Dave is dedicated to understanding the brain, subjective experience, and the ways in which the brain is altered by experience. It stays grounded in science but not limited to what any given scientific field suggests, he explains. “We try to combine all the fields of science, from math and physics all the way to sociology and anthropology, into one framework.”

Two established realms of physics, Newtonian and Quantum, get a lot of attention in today’s show. Nine domains of integration do, too. Why? In a nutshell, we need to stop being isolated nouns and start being interconnected verbs. That’s the only way we’ll reach optimal health. And three pillars—focused attention, opened awareness, and kind intention—actually slow aging. Research proves it.

As with life and biohacking, “When things are going well, they're in a state of harmony,” says Dr. Siegel. “When things aren't going well, they're either in chaos or rigidity or some combination of both.”

In today’s far-reaching conversation, the science of the mind meets the science of the body. Take a listen to find out more about the Wheel of Awareness and how to live, lead, love and learn from the Plane of Possibility.

LipoFullerenes for the Longevity Win – Ian Mitchell : 586
00:51:33

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, you’ll learn about cellular enhancements that regulate mitochondria, stop inflammation and inhibit metastasis. We’re welcoming Ian Mitchell back to the show to talk about his exciting new patent that could have important implications for human cancer treatments.

Who knew that reconfiguration of the carbon atom or molecule could have such profound effects on cellular activity? Ian did. As the vice president of Research at C360 Health, his focus is on using natural products to impact a wide range of health issues and on innovative health supplementation through the use of LipoFullerenes™.

He and his team have been researching and developing supplements and therapeutics using Carbon nanoparticulate as a backbone for complexed molecules and solutions—things ranging from joint renewal, to hair regrowth to anti-metastatic therapies for cancer. A fullerene is a molecule of carbon in the form of a hollow sphere, ellipsoid, tube, and many other shapes. A fullerene dissolved in olive oil has anti-aging, anti-wrinkle, anti-pollution, skin brightening/lightening, hair growth-stimulation, anti-inflammatory, pore-tightening efficacy. It also helps with the improvement of the skin barrier and acne. Dissolved in coconut oil, it is beneficial for your eyes.

Ian’s team discovered that LipoFullerenes™ up-regulate mitochondrial function at the same time they decrease inflammation. Specifically, cellular enhancements in biological systems through the use of LipoFullerenes™ and peptide group combinations. And their newest research is even more profound: “We've developed something that does, in fact, entirely inhibit metastatic behavior of cancer,” Ian says. “That's pretty cool.”

LipoFullerenes™ used on a daily basis play a big part in cellular health, as well as a ketogenic diet. “That's the apex of the whole thing,” he says. “Get on a keto diet. Just stop feeding the problem.”

So if you want to learn how to enhance your cellular function and put your body back in line so that your immune system can do what it’s supposed to do, we invite you to listen to today’s episode.

Stacking Biohacks: In Tune with Body and Mind - Rick Rubin : 585
00:57:54

For this episode of Bulletproof Radio, Dave talked with legendary music producer Rick Rubin at the famed Shangri-La Recording Studio in Malibu, California.

Rick coaxes creativity and musical magic from diverse artists across multiple genres, such as hip-hop, heavy metal, pop, country, rock & roll, alternative, and more. He’s known for his Zen-like demeanor, private nature and nearly four decades-long influence on music. 

His formula for success isn’t a formula at all. “We're really at the mercy of the forces of the universe to control the process,” Rick says, “and we just have to be patient and be open and allow it to happen.”

He doesn’t have a formula for biohacking his way to a 130-pound weight loss, either, but being open to experimentation got him there. Take a listen to Rick’s journey to better health in which he reconsidered veganism, discovered ice baths as meditation, and embraced loving kindness. 

There’s plenty more biohacking goodness covered, too, like intranasal red light, biophoto modulation, cerebral electrical stimulation, Carbogen, deuterium depleted water, and peptides. "I don't need to understand the science of why a biohack works or doesn't work,” Rick says. “I just want it to work.”

The Miracle of Overcoming Near-Death to Impact Millions - Hal Elrod : 584
01:00:47

Today's guest, Hal Elrod, first came on Bulletproof Radio in episode 176, (Hal Elrod: Be Happier, Healthier, & More Productive), when he shared his extraordinary personal story of surviving a near-fatal car accident at age 20 in which he was clinically dead for six minutes and sustained extensive injuries. His recovery was miraculous.

He went on to become a Hall of Fame business achiever, international speaker and success coach, and author of “The Miracle Morning,” which has been translated into 34 languages, sold more than 1 million copies, and is practiced daily by more than 500,000 people around the world.

Since Hal was last on the show, he’s had another near-death experience. He was diagnosed with aggressive Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in October 2016. After pairing intensive chemotherapy with intensive alternative therapies, his cancer has gone into remission. Another miracle.

His brand-new book The Miracle Equation is part of his mission to raise the consciousness of humanity, one person at a time.

Sleep Need & Sleep Age: Find Out Yours – Dan Gartenberg : 583
00:56:56

Dan Gartenberg, Ph.D., wants you to sleep better, so he’s conducted research and developed technology based on the science of sound, light, temperature, and relaxation to help you do just that. “By more accurately measuring sleep, based on your sleep stage, there are ways of enhancing your deep sleep in real time while you're sleeping through sound or temperature stimulation,” he says.

Dan, aka Dr. Snooze, is the co-founder and CEO of Sonic Sleep and also an adjunct assistant professor at Penn State University. With a background in cognitive psychology and expertise in sleep, A.I., and preventive health, he has spent most of his career focused on improving sleep health. 

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, you’ll learn:

  • why “sleep need” includes both quantity and quality;
  • how you can discover your “sleep age;”
  • what you can do to get more out of your sleep; and
  • which sleep hacks really work.

Radical Regeneration: Neurosurgery Meets Energy Medicine – Marcella Madera : 582
00:48:12

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, Dave talks with neurosurgeon Dr. Marcella Madera about innovations in the field of integrative, regenerative spine care, and how she’s using stem cells in her treatments. She’s currently one of the only spine surgeons in the country to offer stem cell treatments using a patient’s own harvested cells to promote healing.

Listeners may remember that she was the third set of six hands during Dave’s whole-body stem cell makeover. (For those new to the show, more on that here and here.) In today’s episode, Dr. Marcella describes—in detail—what she did with stem cells along Dave’s spine. She also makes exosomes fun: “They are little nanoparticles full of awesome, regenerative juice,” she says.

Understanding and treating spinal disease is the focus of Dr. Marcella’s professional medical practice. She approaches that work by combining surgical and holistic perspectives. Her expertise comes from rigorous training and background, including a Johns Hopkins fellowship, as well as extensive travel throughout Europe and the U.S. to learn progressive techniques and regenerative medicine practices.

Today’s conversation also pivots into preparing patients for surgery and caring for them afterward in ways that are unconventional, and this is where Dr. Marcella’s integrative approach really shines. She addresses sleep, inflammation, nutrition, movement, stress management, and energy modalities for pain management—not just the nitty gritty of the surgical procedure.

You’ll be captivated by Dr. Marcella’s viewpoint: “We're on the verge in the next 20-50 years of having a totally different understanding of the biology of the body,” she says. “I think that's where we're going—figuring out how to use external energy plus regenerative medicine together.”

Merchants of Truth and Light: Losing the Nobel Prize - Brian Keating : 581
01:09:21

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, astrophysicist and cosmologist Brian Keating, Ph.D., talks about the high-pressure world of science. He knows that world well and gives a firsthand account of his experience of loss, failure, resiliency and humility in his book, “Losing the Nobel Prize: A Story of Cosmology, Ambition, and the Perils of Science's Highest Honor.”

Brian’s childhood fascination with the night sky has led him to build and deploy some of the world’s most advanced and powerful telescopes and detectors. He does this so he can search for the literal edge of our universe and cosmic origins. His work takes him to some of the most extreme environments on the planet. You’ll learn about the high-performance hacks he and his team use to manage these conditions.

Today’s episode covers topics designed to fire up your thinking. Here are a few teasers from Brian:

  • Science and business: “Science is messy, and science is chaotic, and then oftentimes, unknowable, and it has many of the same features of the business world.”
  • Brains and computers: “The brain is the most phenomenal computer in the world and in the known universe.”
  • Time travel: “If time travel is possible, it would beggar a lot of questions.”
  • Infinity: “It's the most baffling concept that we think it's only accessible to human consciousness.”
  • The end of the world as we know it: "Keep paying your taxes just in case."
  • Life’s secret weapon: “Curiosity. Be interested in literally everything.”

Meditation is the Ultimate Rest Hack – Light Watkins : 580
01:05:19

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, we get real with Light Watkins about meditation and why it’s so hard to get your body and your thoughts comfortable doing it. You’ll learn there’s no “right” way and no “wrong” way to meditate—just the way that works for you and keeps you coming back to it.

Light has been immersed in the meditation space for nearly two decades, first as a practitioner, then as an apprentice to his Vedic Meditation teacher, and finally as a teacher himself. But in the beginning, he spent several years sitting in uncomfortable positions with whirling thoughts and feeling like he was failing at meditation. He couldn’t settle his body or his mind.

He had to find his own sweet spot of comfort: “When I did that, it completely upgraded the quality of my experiences, and that's where I first had the tangible experience of bliss,” he says. And you can, too. Light explains how to put meditation in your life’s “rest” category, so it becomes both relatable and a practical application.

Another life category that’s a feature of today’s podcast is happiness. Light travels the world giving talks on happiness, inspiration, and meditation, as well as leading meditation trainings and retreats. He’s been featured in major media, taught celebrity clients and written two popular books. So, prepare to get comfy—with meditation and happiness—and learn how to incorporate more of both into your life.

Mental Strength Hacks for Everyone – Amy Morin : 579
00:47:55

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, instead of suggesting another “to-do” list, we’re looking at “to-don’t” lists. That’s right, subtracting things from your likely already-too-full life in order to make room for more ways you can be mentally strong, happy and successful.

Amy Morin is the bestselling author of three books about “13 Things” you don’t want to do that can actually increase your mental strength and help you perform optimally at everything you do. She’s a licensed clinical social worker, psychotherapist, and psychology professor who shared her own life story of adversity and becoming mentally strong in a TEDx talk (record-setting views), then a blog post (went viral), then three books on the subject—for people, for parents, for women.

A few of the “13 Things” discussed in today’s episode include:

  • How to recognize when you’re the only guest at your own pity party;
  • How to know when your risk-taking isn’t based on logic;
  • How to embrace vulnerability; and
  • How gender constructs of strength are often culture-specific.

And the biggie for everyone? Power. “Taking back your power is about acknowledging that you're in control of your time, you're in control of how you think, how you feel, and how you behave,” Amy says.

If you want to learn the single most important thing that mentally strong people don't do, listen to this episode.

Slow Down Aging with Stem Cells – Dr. Harry Adelson & Dr. Amy Killen : 578
00:55:49

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, you’ll learn about the stem cell theory of aging and what stem cells can do for you. They essentially have two superhuman powers and you’ll find out why that matters.

Back on the show are Dr. Harry Adelson and Dr. Amy Killen of Docere Clinics. In previous episodes, they’ve discussed the use of stem cell therapy for healing, pain conditions, erectile dysfunction and other health concerns. They are at the forefront of clinical stem cell use and treatments. On today’s show, they focus on the benefits of using stem cells to slow down the aging process.

“The two main contributors to aging are inflammation and oxidation,” says Dr. Adelson. “Your body's biologic aging really is a response to how well you can cope with and respond to inflammation and oxidation. Both of those processes are entirely controlled by stem cells.”

Dave recently underwent a “six-hands” full-body stem cell makeover and has the video to prove it on YouTube. He shares the specifics of those procedures — from injections to topical application and microneedling — with listeners and discusses the healing and change he’s experienced since the treatments.

“There's something called healthy aging … and that's the thing that I'm looking for,” Dave says.

So, listen in to find out more about the different types of stem cells, stem-cell mediated events, exosomes and growth factors, and how to turbocharge your own stem cells.

The Nuance of No – Adam Grant, Ph.D. : 577
01:04:20

This episode of Bulletproof Radio features organizational psychologist Adam Grant, who brings a dynamic acumen to all of his work. He has been recognized as one of the world's 10 most influential management thinkers and named to Fortune's 40 under 40 list.

In today’s show, you’ll learn why burnout is thriving and people aren’t, and why burnout matters from a gender perspective. You’ll find out how doing more five-minute favors allows the 30,000-foot view of life to come into view and how nailing “no” frees you up while still allowing you to help others.

Our conversation about job design covers a lot of interesting ground, from earning “idiosyncrasy credits” to pitching your ideal role, to companies with no bosses. Adam poses the questions: “If you're an individual with creative ideas, how do you champion them effectively? And then, if you're a leader, how do you build a culture that welcomes original ideas, and then, makes them a reality?”

Adam’s a researcher, a top-rated professor at The Wharton School, a New York Times columnist, a TEDtalk favorite, and the author of three New York Times bestselling books. He’s also considered to be a leading expert on how we can find motivation and meaning in our work and live more generous and creative lives.

If you want to learn how to design work that works for your life, this episode is filled with practical value from beginning to end.

Intelligence is Not Enough: The Genius Zone - Dean Simonton : 576
01:09:06

This episode of Bulletproof Radio includes a surprising amount of laughter that makes the topic of intelligence and genius a fun listen.

Our guest is Dean Keith Simonton, Ph.D., a Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Psychology at the University of California-Davis. He’s known as the “Maverick Psychologist” who has been defying the establishment all of his nearly half-century career in the areas of genius, creativity, aesthetics, and leadership.

In this lively conversation, you’ll learn that intelligence needs a sprinkling of grit, creativity and imagination to flourish into genius. You’ll find out that taking risks matters: “In order to make discoveries, in order to invent new things, you have to be willing to try things out and fail.” You’ll discover, too, that creators (typically introverts) and leaders (typically extroverts) use their smarts in significantly different ways.

“I think the problem is that when people think that they don't have a genius level IQ,” Dr. Dean says. “They may think they're doomed or they're not going to be able to achieve much.” But, “you can't let the IQ score determine who you are.” His most recent book gives a “genius checklist” of tips for anyone to follow.

Dr. Dean studies the cognitive, personal, developmental, social, and cultural factors behind eminence, giftedness, and talent. He’s researched some of the greatest figures throughout history and examined why their achievements—in science, philosophy, literature, music, art, cinema, politics, and war—have stood the test of time.

Be open to today’s experience (hint… it’s a personality predictor of outstanding achievement) and ...

Enjoy the show!

The Laws of Human Nature – Robert Greene : 575
00:54:24

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, one of my favorite authors is back on the show.

Robert Greene has written five New York Times bestsellers. One in particular, The 48 Laws of Power, changed the course of my professional life. His other books, including: The Art of SeductionThe 33 Strategies of WarThe 50th Law, and Mastery, have gained a gained a broad following from war historians to hip-hop industry musicians.

Robert takes a deep and searing look at the inner workings of human behavior based on social and biological science, as well as many of the most powerful people throughout history. In his sixth and most recent book, The Laws of Human Nature, he focuses on people’s drives and motivations, even when they are unconscious of them. “Basically, we’re a social animal,” Robert says. “It’s deeply ingrained in our nature. When we’re not being the social animal that we were born to be, we pay a terrible price.”

This is a must-listen episode full of evocative human insights—you’ll learn the basis of envy and why it persists in social hierarchy. “Envy is complicated and it's slippery and it's hard to put your finger on it,” Robert says.

We also discuss early childhood as an underestimated developmental force; how gender rigidity limits your full potential; and the ways in which mortality awareness can be both comforting and freeing.

Intuition is Not a Feeling - Joy Martina : 574
01:11:30

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, psychic psychologist Joy Martina demystifies the myths surrounding intuition. She explains how anyone can develop their psychic skills and fundamentally alter their life experience.

Before you decide this isn’t the episode for you, stay with us. We talk about intuition as a form of intelligence that’s not gender-specific.

Joy reminds us that Albert Einstein said intuition is a highest form of intelligence. He also says the intuitive mind is the sacred gift and the rational mind is the faithful servant. Joy believes that we've created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.

Our conversation touches on “channeling,” as well as how to use your intuition to make better choices faster, starting with stepping out of the buzz and making time for solitude and silence. “When our brain is relaxed,” Joy says, “it's usually smarter. When our brain is able to focus, we have control over our mind rather than our mind having control over us. Then, we're actually able to train potential in ourselves.”

Also in this episode, you’ll learn how to:

  • Recognize the difference between emotions and intuition
  • Say no gracefully
  • Sync your left and right brain hemispheres using a simple technique called “the switch”
  • Forgive and release
  • Train your brain while sleeping
  • Fire your head brain, heart brain and gut brain in the right sequence to become more intuitive
  • Take power naps to increase energy and efficiency

“We can't be happy when we're not tuned into our intuition,” says Joy. “If we don't know what's right for us, if we don't feel that in us, if we're not connected to us, to our truth, then we'll never be truly happy. That's what intuition actually is—finding your truth.”

The Nervous System Circuitry of Safety, Sound and Gratitude – Stephen Porges : 573
01:00:11

Bulletproof Radio welcomes scientist Dr. Stephen Porges back to the showHe's known for his deep and profound understanding of the human nervous system and its application to real-life clinical settings.

Dr. Porges created the Polyvagal Theory, which explains the workings of the vagal nerve and links the evolution of the mammalian autonomic nervous system to social behavior. He has authored and co-authored several books on the subject. For 25 years, his Polyvagal Theory has been leading to innovative treatments based on insights into the mechanisms mediating symptoms observed in behavioral, psychiatric, and physical disorders.

One of my favorite episodes of Bulletproof Radio was #264 when he and I talked about this theory. I encourage you to listen to that episode and check out the two Bulletproof Blog articles. I was so impressed with his research that I included it in my new book Game Changers, specifically Law #44, which is “Gratitude is Stronger than Fear.”

Dr. Porges also is the creator of a music-based intervention, the Safe and Sound Protocol™, which currently is used by more than 1200 therapists to improve spontaneous social engagement, to reduce hearing sensitivities, and to improve language processing, state regulation, and spontaneous social engagement.

In this new episode, we explore how sound, safety, environment and gratitude are all intimately connected to our nervous system circuitry.

“Your body, in safe environments, will start to spontaneously optimize those circuits,” explains Dr. Porges. “We need to structure narratives that have a degree of positivity, so that our nervous system doesn't feel too scared to evaluate it.”

We’ll be making links between Dr. Stephen’s work and fascinating brain-body interactions, often deeply rooted in our ancient biology. We introduce “neuroception,” find out how to structure environments for those who struggle with sensory processing issues, better understand how hearing frequencies affect adults and kids differently, and learn how to control our own heart rate variability.

Harnessing Autonomic Arousal to Think & Do Better – Andrew Huberman : 572
01:03:44

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, we talk about how you can increase cognitive capacity by leveraging your stress; how the brain is wired for fear; advances in virtual reality; and why a daily dose of real brain science on Instagram is good for just about everyone.

My guest is neuroscientist Andrew Huberman, Ph.D. He studies comparative neurology to better understand the human brain and human brain evolution. He’s also working to make neuroscience more accessible and relevant to people’s everyday life. And he’s in a particularly good position to do just that at Stanford School of Medicine where he’s an associate professor in the Department of Neurobiology and the Department of Ophthalmology. His own Huberman Lab performs clinical trials using molecular, genetic, physiological and virtual reality tools.

His work includes developing ways to regenerate the brain after injury and in neurodegenerative disorders, mainly those causing blindness. Another aspect of his research parses the mechanisms for stress, "courage" (adaptive action toward potential threats), and testing treatments and protocols for anxiety disorders and trauma. 

Dr. Huberman has made numerous—and award-winning-- contributions to the fields of brain development, brain plasticity, and neural regeneration and repair.

Up-level Your Approach to Food - Izabella Wentz : 571
00:52:49

I care a lot about food, and I fundamentally think food is the single biggest tool you have to increase your performance, to change how you look, and to change how your brain works.

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I talk with Dr. Izabella Wentz, PharmD, an internationally acclaimed thyroid specialist and licensed pharmacist who has dedicated her career to addressing the root causes of autoimmune thyroid disease after being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis in 2009. She also cares about food in the same way that I do. She developed the term “food pharmacology” to explain the profound effect that food has on our physiology and biology.

From her self-described “nerdy pharmacist” perspective, food works in ways similar to medication in the human body. She wants people to become their own food gurus and ask: “If I have this symptom, what do I need to modify? Is there a digestive enzyme that I need to take? Or is there a nutrient that can really up-level my response to nutrition?” Our conversation also touches on adaptive physiology, food sensitivities, mold and essential self-care.

She believes food can be a powerful ally in your healing journey. “My goal is to establish a communication pathway for people between their bodies and the things that they're ingesting,” she says.

As a patient advocate, researcher, clinician, educator and also a best-selling author of two previous books and a new one publishing in March, she is committed to raising awareness on how to overcome autoimmune thyroid disease, how to use food as medicine, and how to manage the stresses and toxins in our everyday environments.

One of my favorite authors is back on the show! Neil Strauss is an award-winning, 10-time New York Times best-selling author. He was a music critic, cultural reporter, investigative journalist and columnist at The New York Times for a decade and has been a contributing editor at Rolling Stone for more than 20 years. He's well-known for earning the trust of some of the most guarded and secretive celebrities in the world.

His life has been enthralling and complex: Remarkably insightful interviews with celebrities and musicians, award-winning journalism, successful authorship and ghostwriting, becoming a pick-up artist, reforming himself and his relationships, becoming a parent and hosting programs focused on healing trauma and transforming lives.

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, we talk about facing fears, discomfort and anxieties—how to tell the difference among them and what we get wrong about them. That leads us to a cognitive bias called the neglect of probability. As you may know, running from failure versus moving towards success is a very different mindset.

Neil shares his fascination with how beliefs get implanted and reinforced, and offers up a theory as to why so many people go off track when they're working on finding their passion and purpose. He says, “Do something you love enough that you care about each detail of it.” And that’s our cue to share some highlights of his intriguing new podcast—will it be called “’Gonzo?!”—that debuts this month.

Enjoy the show!

More about Neil Strauss

In addition to being an author of The Game, The Truth, Emergency and other books about his own personal experiences, he’s a respected and sought-after ghostwriter. He has co-authored numerous books, such as Jenna Jameson's How to Make Love Like a Porn Star; Mötley Crue’s, The Dirt (currently being produced by Netflix as a theatrical film); Marilyn Manson's The Long Hard Road; and Dave Navarro's Don't Try This at Home. Kevin Hart's I Can't Make This Up: Life Lessons, entered The New York Times bestseller list at No. 1 while topping the best-selling audiobook list at the same time.
