Podcast cover

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

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

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

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

Rank #12: Facts vs. Experience: How Science May Be Alienating Consciousness – Philip Goff, Ph.D., with Dave Asprey : 701

Podcast cover
Read more

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

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

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

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

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

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

Rank #20: Mental Strength Hacks for Everyone – Amy Morin : 579

Podcast cover

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.

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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

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

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

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

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

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

Neuroscience, Mystical Practices and Transformation with Dr. Joe Dispenza : 703

Podcast cover
Read more

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Podcast cover

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

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

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

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