Hormones Flex Their Superpowers – Dr. Jolene Brighten : 670

Podcast cover
Read more

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.)

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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.”

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

Podcast cover

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

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

Podcast cover

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.

*This episode contains a mini session guided by Dawson that is a allows you to quickly access an altered state of consciousness.
