Biohacking Your Brain, Heart, and Overall Health with Dr. Joe DiDuro

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 and president of the Neuropathy Treatment Centers of America, Dr. DiDuro has made it his life's work to end the suffering of patients with neurodegenerative diseases.  This has led him to develop a new treatment called Photobiomodulation, which uses light to stimulate neuro tissue and regenerate neural activity. Early testing has shown promise that the treatment may be able to reverse the effects of neurodegeneration. On this episode number 222, will be talking about Dr. DiDuro's amazing discovery and he'll be providing plenty of practical advice on brain health and overall health and longevity, including how to have an incredible HRV or heart rate variability score. This is an episode every biohacker and anti-aging aficionado needs to listen to. Join us.

Achieve High-Quality Sleep with James Swanwick

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 have less REM sleep and you often wake up feeling groggy. One option to combat the effects of blue light is to impose a digital curfew on yourself. But we're so reliant on our devices that this can be difficult. Another option is simply to get yourself a pair of blue light blocking glasses, like those developed by my guest for this episode number 220, James Swanwick.  James began his career as a journalist in Australia, eventually moving to Los Angeles where he worked as an ESPN SportsCenter anchor and interviewed A list celebrities like Bradley Cooper, Al Gore, and many champion athletes. Although successful, James struggled with sleeplessness throughout his career. Desperate for a solution, he tried everything from herbal remedies to changing his diet without success. Until he discovered a research on blue light exposure. Came to share his discovery with the world, James partnered with his brother Tristan in to create Swanwick Glasses. And after an extensive testing process, they launched their blue light blocking glasses to help people around the world improve their sleep quality and their lives.  James and his glasses have been featured in The New York Times, GQ, BuzzFeed and Men's Health. James is also the creator of the 30-Day No Alcohol Challenge and host of The James Swanwick Show. If you've ever had trouble getting a good night's sleep, you're going to want to hear what James has to say. Let's get this party started!

The Biohacker’s Guide to Optimized Sleep with Claus Pummer

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 performance, low sex drive, and even serious health problems like strokes and heart disease. An investment in your sleep is an investment in your health and your wellbeing.  Sleep is something that my guest for this episode number 209, Claus Pummer, takes very seriously. Claus is president of SAMINA North America, which in my words, is a biohacker’s dream bed. It was through the original biohacker Dave Asprey, founder of Bulletproof and past guest on this show, episode 38, that I learned of SAMINA and Claus. In fact, Claus taught a sleep workshop hosted by Bulletproof and Upgrade Labs that I attended, and it was excellent, which is why I invited him onto the show. Claus' involvement with the business of sleep began many years ago with a woodworking business he founded that designed and built beds. From there, his interest in sleep grew, he studied the science of sleep and he became an accredited sleep expert through the Austrian Institute for Sleep Psychology.  Achieving the perfect night's sleep can take a lot of work. It's all about creating the right routine and paying attention to details in your environment, including light sources, background noise, and temperature. If you've had trouble sleeping in the past or just want to improve your overall quality of life, Claus will be revealing some powerful hacks that will revolutionize the way you think about sleep and ensure you are well-rested and ready for anything. And now, on with the show.

Light Is Life with Dr. Jacob Liberman

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 spiritual well-being? Dr. Jacob Liberman is someone who's taken a deep interest in our relationship with light. This is the second time I've interviewed Dr. Liberman. The first was episode number 130, where we discussed the healing properties of light. It was a powerful episode, and I recommend listening to it if you haven't already. On this episode number 202. I'm excited to welcome Dr. Liberman back to the show to delve deeper into the topic of light. Dr. Liberman is the author of four books and an international speaker who's changed the way many of us think about light. He's also explored our spiritual connection to light and has been praised by such luminaries as Deepak Chopra, Bruce Lipton, Eckhart Tolle, and Ram Dass. If you want to know about the different types of light, how light effects jet lag, the benefits of sun exposure, and more, Dr. Liberman will be revealing some of the myriad ways light can make your life better. It was an illuminating episode. And now on to the interview.
