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.

Transcend Aging with Dr. Terry Grossman

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 the effects of aging. Dr. Terry Grossman is a thought-leader in anti-aging and preventive medicine and the founder of Grossman Wellness Center, a cutting-edge clinic which works to extend the longevity and quality of its patient's lives. He's also co-author of the book Fantastic Voyage: Live Long Enough to Live Forever with world-renowned futurist Ray Kurzweil. Dr. Grossman has been studying anti-aging therapies and preventative medicine for over 25 years. Whether you're simply interested in fighting off those wrinkles or you're preparing to live well into your second century, I advise you to stay tuned as he'll be revealing some truly mind-blowing facts about aging.
