Humans have come a long way over the last 200,000 years. But, with all the genetic and environmental factors impacting our health, including the coronavirus that’s engulfed the planet, it can feel like no matter how well we eat and how regularly we exercise, we still have relatively little control over our life expectancy. My guest today, the incredibly smart Dr. David Karow, is trying to change all that. Dr. Karow is President and Chief Innovation Officer at Human Longevity Inc. and an expert in advanced genomic analytics and magnetic…

The inspiration for me starting this podcast was really my fascination with biohacking and personal optimization - merging the world of science with the spiritual and cognitive experience. When you hear about the tech that today's guest Scott Donnell is going to speak with us about, you're going to feel like you've stepped into a Star Trek episode.  I met Scott during a dinner at the Genius Network annual event back in November, and I was so impressed with some of the projects he was working on. I knew I…

I've always considered myself a pragmatic thinker. Breaking down how things work is fun and it makes sense. But on my journey of personal growth, I've had experiences that have challenged my mind to see a greater, more empowering view of life. I traveled to India and had a spiritual awakening. I met my soulmate. I've created a life I truly enjoy. Part of my love for biohacking and personal optimization, is it merges the scientific with the spiritual.  My guest, Ariel Garten, has done just that. She's a neuroscientist,…

Of all the organs in the human body, the brain is arguably the most important, yet we still don't understand exactly how it works. When it comes to diseases of the brain, like Alzheimer’s and other types of Dementia, there are no cures and oftentimes, treatments focus on managing symptoms rather than stopping or slowing the disease. Dr. Joe DiDuro has treated many patients with neurodegenerative diseases and has seen firsthand just how devastating they can be to every aspect of a person's life. As a chiropractic neurologist and founder…

Sleep is essential if you want to maintain stamina, achieve peak performance during your workday, and not get sick like I am right now. Unfortunately, our natural sleep patterns get disrupted by TVs, laptops, and cellphones that we look at for hours each day. Blue light emitted from the screens of these devices have been shown to delay the release of melatonin to make you more alert and to reset your body's internal clock. When you're exposed to blue light before bed, it takes you longer to fall asleep. You…

You might have a business coach, you might have a life coach. But do you have a sleep coach? You might say, "Why would I need a sleep coach?" Well, here's one reason. If you live to 75, and I do hope you live a lot longer than that, you will have spent about 25 years of your life sleeping. 25 years. Not only that, but the quality of your sleep will have a huge impact on the quality of your life. Lack of sleep can lead to poor mental…

How often do you think about the light you're absorbing every day? Probably not as much as the food you eat or the liquids you consume, I bet. In the 21st century, our bodies are bombarded by unnatural light from screens and artificial light sources. We spend most of our time indoors and once finally outside, we use lotions and sunglasses to block out the natural light. As we become more and more removed from the light of our natural environment, how does this affect our physical, mental, and even…

We all know that as we get older, our risk for certain diseases increases, our bodies wear out, and our mental faculties often fade. Aging is something that most of us just accept as a fact of life, but does it have to be? Scientific research is starting to reveal the underlying causes of aging and how diet, genetics, and environment can all contribute to the deterioration of our bodies. In fact, scientists can now recommend specific foods, therapies, and supplements that can reduce the risk of disease and combat…

I’ve been podcasting for four years and it feels like just yesterday that the first episode was published. As we wrap up Get Yourself Optimized’s 200th episode, I can’t help but look back and reflect on the last 100 guests who have graciously agreed to be on the show. It was such an honor interviewing some of the best experts, influencers, and trailblazers in the world of biohacking, business, and self-development. So many lessons learned and tips and tricks gained to live a highly optimized life. This special episode is…

Stem cells are quietly bringing about a revolution in health and longevity, and doctors are now looking at stem cells as a viable treatment for a number of ailments including spinal cord injuries and neurological conditions. Stem cells also appear to have a lot of potential when it comes to aging. On this episode number 199, I'm joined by Dr. Amy Killen, an expert in anti-aging, regenerative, and aesthetic medicine. Amy works out at the Docere Clinics at Utah where she practices cutting edge treatments that reduce the effects of…
