"You don't have pain throughout the body. So i look at that indo. 'they liam and even the lining of the endothelium the quake cakes as primary biohacking territories and the idea that you can use feedback any system in the body where you can get. External feedback will improve more quickly. Than if you just sit there and try and look at it. Even if you're a meditation guru santa cave and you can make your your thumb or your hand. Get really hot here and there are guys who can do that. They can change ten degrees by temperature. Hook thermometer up to it and show them the thermometer and they can do it faster. So feedback is just valuable in this feedback on system. Most people don't know you can measure or have any impact on but it has been around for ten plus years on it does compete with with chemicals which i think always a good thing to do. I'll write. would you be up for a question or two. From the upgrade collective members would love to alright. John's got his hand up. But i can't tell if that's because he wanted to ask a question or he just left his hand. Upjohn since your hands up. Woody have to say actually. The question was really about the pots because I got a couple of daughters that both get light headed miss and we give them salt. They keep salt with them so that they can. You know not stop doing their activities in that raises a breath blood pressure just enough to eliminate the problem. And when i heard you talking about how you could learn to control blood pressure with this. I thought maybe that would work. But i wrote you the the question in a text and you really already really already screen that question. So i don't and the pots is actually originated from lime. It's not it's really lime related. The doctor told it's not actually butts a right. 'cause it's from lime. It's not really pots yet. Thank you said it is but that most people would treat the pots and not treat the lime. She said of retreat the line and just do the salt For the pots at this pot system symptoms would improve in. so that's how we approached it. You know how are they doing with their lime treatment overall like are they winning no I'd say i'd say they've improved quite a bit but there's a lot of ups and downs for both of them. Yeah so then. I'd even turned this over today in his experience but yet the i agree with the doctor in this case i mean you obviously need some hacks to get the blood pressure up immediately. I don't know if zone is the right tool to do that. There's money back guarantee you can try. It can work. You only need one of them for both your daughters so they can try to doesn't work send it back and we'd love to hear the results from it. I should have mentioned that this one of those things where it was like sixty or ninety days some long amount of time. I don't remember what it is. It's on the websites guys. Don't quote me on that but you can try to look. I did it. You really need to do it for about four six weeks or something. Pretty regularly to start seeing the numbers change. They won't change. the. I say there is ninety days so you can try it for in two months and say okay. I got the results. I could see my blood pressure. Or i didn't and then send it back so i i just think that's a that's the biggest vote you can have of confidence when nine days is plenty of time to see the results and and so it's like either is gonna workers not gonna work and for specific cases of lyme. Some lime co infections things like barnala will infect the endothelium in fact there's a chronic number of people probably tens of millions in the us alone who have stuff living in their endothelium slow growing bacteria. And certainly something that i dealt with before Does doing this kind of training with zona were training into the feeling. Does it affect the co-infections that come with lime. No idea no idea. But you treat lime and you use zone. I mean she's going to have an idea. You don't have a clinical study but you have an idea so again so we're dealing with so there is an dible nitric oxide. Synthase is inside the endothelium right. So if there's an infection they are producing crazy amounts of nitric oxide that does disrupt the normal functioning of feeling sales and the normal functioning of the endothelial nitric oxide synthesis. So essentially you. You're releasing. Gobs and gobs and gobs of nitric oxide to try and get the innate immune system working so it kills off the invader and so the rest of the the nitric oxide synthesis as well. We're gonna take the day off. 'cause we got plenty nitric oxide here so at Down regulates the normal functioning there. So i would think that if once the body got on top of the infection a little bit and the Down regulated that it would disown would help restore normal function there But if it's an active infection with inflammation going on there who knows but in terms of recovery absolutely. Okay that's a. That's a very very cool answer. We have one more question from the upgrade collective. Today's susan go for it and thank you for this wide-ranging ranging and very interesting conversation about a lot of different on cardio benefits. My question is around the actual use of it so do switch hands stand up sit down you know what are the best ways or the optima ways to get results and where do you find people making mistakes that we would like to pay attention to. If we're going to start this between gregg questioned the only mistake you can make is not doing it. It really it walks you through. So it's a little handheld device. It walks through the exercise as long as you are using the feedback. And either it tells you the squeeze lesser squeeze more. It's that simple. And then at the end it gives you a score bap during those two minutes. What percentage where you in the proper zone and as long as you're above seventy percent for the two for the entire exercise you're okay so there's really you can't mess this one up. This is simple as it gets. You just have to get started and squeeze and takes about. Thanks about eleven minutes. I think total because paul one minute pause in between you go back and forth times but it's it's as simple as you can get. You cannot literally cannot mess it. Up doesn't matter if you've got the grip strength of dave asprey or you know you've got a carpal tunnel can't squeeze very hard. It's all calibrated to what you're able to do so you don't have to be the hulk and to make this work either..

Jimmy goes to a lot of places you probably wouldn't think about all in search of the flow state things like the fascinating sex survey he conducted with couples or his views on sexy biohacking and nerdy kink.

"Well what did you think i. That was an interesting episode for you to hear. Because i don't find that you get super fascinated by that kind of stuff. So what did you think. I mean i like him and he i like evangelists needs an evangelist. He's here to educate which i got his. You know he's also evangelizing his book as well but man what a what an interesting story i mean i. I've known about him along time. Mostly in the biohacking way the original the original way now. He's really focused on food. Which i think is really great. I like him because he seems like. He's very sound very science based and aims at simplicity. So i'm not getting really unhappy with my nutritional life that it'd be great to like have a vision for it. I really haven't had a clear about it. Like as we're listening to him talk. I mean you know but it's like it's like the food thing you know and i certainly noticed that with my kids just you know it's like they are very sensitive to the e. Yeah that makes a lot of sense. Let's clueless sitting in the conversation as a parent thinking. Oh yeah getting through. The meal is is one thing sending the kids out to really be in. Prime state is very just a hired geyer game that i'm not chosen to focus on it. Worth doing. Really worth doing reminds me as son of silly but like when enemy interrupt us up but like the kit was baby and i had to suppress eating because i was dealing with sinus infections as i talked about on the show and he would need for for a while and i kept calling the peterson. He's not gonna eat. And i'm like he's going to die and he's not going to die he's gonna eat when it comes time to eat and i think it'd be true of like he didn't die by the way people of you know i think about like if we were really try to retrain our kids to like eat eggs in the morning instead of oriole pancakes and cereal and if we were to try to get our kids all of our kids speed and better the an interesting experience yeah. I think the goal is probably did talk about it. More than start said something small. The way people fail is usually they go from zero to one hundred. Not that you ever do that anyways.

"Of. I'm afraid to be alone. Where's your sense of equanimity. After having gone through that experience on there. And what does it mean to you in the largest sense of your life like okay. Loneliness can be seen as just not being around people. But there's also this other deeper sense of loneliness. I'm in this world all by myself. I'm gonna die one day Does my life matter. It brings up a lot of bigger questions about purpose and meaning does. What did you get out of your fast and sense. Then you've done more including your regular fasting that addresses that central worry anxiety that you had previously we volved in communities of about one hundred fifty people these tribes and we were never really alone because he had to live in a cave or surrounded by stuff so animals wouldn't eat you and it was one of the things where as a teenager you'd say. Oh my god everyone around me stupid. I'm going to experience loneliness. And i the reason we biologically do that. Ever run. you get stupid so that you will leave and you will face the lions and tigers. So you'll find another tribe and you reproduce with them because if he reproduced with your small tribe we would have inbreeding and it would be the end of our species into three generations. So that's teenagers. Act the way sometimes and that sense of loneliness that a lot of teams feel is act. It's real but you can feel lonely in a crowd you can be at a bar. You can be at a friend's house and still feel profoundly lonely. And i did that right where i got that. I don't know maybe it's because i was bullied. Maybe because i had birth trauma It was born with the umbilical cord around my neck. What we do know when you look at the science of loneliness is that many many people feel alone. Even if they're not alone so loneliness is a feeling it can be internally generated. And it's not real and one of the things that i dealt with when i was there was okay. If you're afraid of being alone you will choose to be in a bad relationship instead of just breaking up and be like i'll be alone for a while find a better one. Which is the healthy thing to do. And when i did my fast in a cave. I had already left a bad relationship and i. I just had my first my first baby with my wife and i was. You know fixed a lot of my relationship issues but just facing that loneliness thing. It made me not afraid of it so then now that sense of equanimity. It's there is alone. I cannot be alone. And i do require a certain amount of social interaction In fact we talked about those three words earlier that that are motivating people in an unconscious way. There is fear there was food. There was facility. And there's a fourth f word that all life does but it does it. Only after the first three in its friend. So we're wired at a cellular level to go out and to support our community. And all lifeforms do this. Fish are in a school. Bacteria make yogurt. They worked together. So we're wired to do this. What happens though. Is that if you are hungry. All the time or you are fearful all the time whether it's afraid of being alone or afraid of being hungry or afraid of whatever else you're afraid of a you know a virus because you've been watching the news a lot then it gets de prioritized that friend thing but it turns out if you can focus your energy on being.

"Third time together. I appreciate you always being here at drew. I'm happy happy to be able to be here in south here. You know right before you sat down for this interview. You said hey. Can i have thirty seconds. I'm just gonna take a little break to get myself ready. Make lows bresso and before we start off. I just wanna share lower compliment and some thoughts. That i have is being a podcast from one. Podcast does to another. I often don't always get excited. Interviewing people during their press junket circuit where. They're doing back to back podcasts. In a row because the feeling sometimes is okay. Will they give you the same material as somebody else. Can you really make sure that you're having an honest and present conversation. But i want to say all two times that we've interviewed each other Previously you always bring a deep sense of energy and presence to every single interview that i've done with you goes way ed goes a long way and it just makes for a much better conversation for the audience so just wanna acknowledgee for that. I think we're seeing that. I have been trained in corporate america. And when you're going to launch something you have like a set of bullet points that you do and you go through all the stuff. I don't do any of that for for the things that i do. I just ask friends. Hey can i. can i come back on your show. I've got something new and worthwhile doc. About and then it's like whatever comes to mind because spent thousands of hours writing a book. You don't write books to make money because you're per hour rate for book is probably like you. Could i think if i worked in my own coffee shop making coffee my hourly rate with. It's not about the money it's about sharing knowledge that matters so based your questions we'll figure out which knowledge matters and that's the win. People hear it and say this book seems like three great. And if it's not worth reading for you then don't buy it like it's okay. I think that the compliment..

Today we're talking about his incredible new book that gets released on january nineteenth fast this way. Okay so dave. We've only got a couple of minutes. Unfortunately that clock always goes too fast. When you've got an incredible. Gaston but what. What does fasting from food. Do for us physically. It is remarkable what it does when you decide to fast even for just sixteen hours which sounds like a big deal except what that means. Is you skip breakfast and have a late lunch. It's not the end of the world. But when you do that or longer fast it tells your body any cells or even parts of yourselves. The mitochondria any of them. That can't hang for that period of time without food. They must be weak and therefore the body will replace the week parts with stronger parts with younger parts. It's basically like weightlifting for your metabolism. What a great explanation. that's You explained it perfectly you did. And that sounds so empowering like who doesn't want to do that right empowering except. I didn't want to do that because i knew that. Come around. Eleven o'clock eleven thirty. I was start acting like a jerk because my blood sugar would go low. And i want to punch people not that. I'm kind of guy but hey anyone who's been angrier or in my case hypoc lie bitchy We we know that viewing well. I just learned that if you do this occasionally and you start slowly and you use the hack that elated and not feel that hunger you can be kind and nice and level headed person even while you do it and that's the hack Well so why is the approach to fasting different for women. It turns out that women have different hormones and men. I know that sometimes isn't politically correct to say. But hey it's totally true. When women do fasting too much even just intermittent fasting every morning for a lot of women after about six for the first month. You're gonna feel amazing but after about six weeks. You start noticing. Hey i sleep isn't as good. I keep waking at three in the morning. Four in the morning and my hormones aren't working the way they should and you wonder what's going on because you know fasting makes you feel so good what's happening is it's just like training you over train or you can over fast so being kind to yourself and fasting every other day or intermittent fasting every other day it works really well for a lot of women and few women can do it every single morning especially exercise a lot. I'm so glad. I asked that question because i've experienced that and i couldn't understand why some nights i would sleep so well and then some days not and But i typically intermittent fast. Every single day i try to do at least twelve hours and typically sixteen hours. So that's really good to know. So let me ask you this. We only have just about one or two minutes before the music's gonna play. Are you still on track to live to one hundred and eighty on track to live to at least one hundred eighty. That's not the ceiling. That's just the goal and all of us have that potential right now because of all these new technologies coming down and because now we know why aging happens. What a great.

"A. Few Times I sit down at a table full of billionaires and by them not a billionaire by a long shot. But I pull my little bag of vitamins and they'll go I've got one two. Okay if you go back ten years or twenty years and longer in Silicon Valley and maybe they weren't billionaires back in there sent a millionaires but. When you? When you look back then I was like from another planet right all of the people of means the power executives, the celebrities, the professional athletes, top level, software developers they're all taking their supplement. They're all paying attention to the stuff because the Roi in their careers is so high. So you're not alone and you're just very early adopter and I would argue that. The the even though you've lived pretty hard for part of your life that the fact that you have this knowledge and you've been using it for awhile it's probably why you have some of the success you have today and the brain app today. Interesting. Do what about the idea of having a life extension coach like a longevity coach coaches for everything but I I right now I feel my first instinct was I wanNA hire someone to be my longevity coach because I think that there's so much information out there that it's cost effective for me not to have to research it I rather seek out one person it's total expert in that field is adopted or or coach question. That's a really perceptive question. What's happening now is that very few doctors even the very, very best functional medicine doctors. They can diagnose weird things because they've seen the pattern before but I is getting so good that if you spend two hours on Google, you can usually dial just into you know what I'm pretty sure. I know about what? What I'm dealing with. You Talk to an expert, the highest use of Watson Right? That's Watson's highest uses diagnosing patterns based on your massive amounts of information. That's what they do. In fact, one of the companies I'm invested in called the DNA companies actually partnered with Watson on functional genomics, and so they can look into go. That's what's going on and it is fascinating. If, you look though at what your doctor's role is if you have concierge doctor in functional medicine doctor, they are your coach. So the idea of a doctor is is the source of knowledge. No doctor knows what the Internet knows. So they're fantastic sources knowledge in your partner, their lab reiter right and they're your coach, and so what you want to do is you want to find a concierge medicine functional Edison Practice, which means you pay. Him, whatever they charge per month, and you have a month with them in their your coach yeah, I had that the human performance institute I've thousand plus coaches. But most of them are doctors you know these are pure people who teach you how to be bulletproof but there's a level where you are where you're saying you know, I need to get my labs and I need to get description for this you wanna doctor you really do. I think it's it's more integrative. It's an integrative approach and I think at some level the only thing that most doctors is that they somewhat the good ones don't but many of them yet not brainwashed but they get myopic because of going through traditional Western medicine. They make you take a certain way and I think a lot of the ways that I think it's changing now fall for the better. You know a specialist you learn more and more about less and less, and I think that the exact opposite of what you need for something like that such a multi disciplinary solution where there's just so many different systems and things happening I don't really think about that almost being about a jack of all trades and some level and finding the masters of those few key ones to come up with a strategy that really is perfect for you. That's the solution maybe the two groups you want to go to the people were certified by the IFM, the Institute for Functional Medicine or a for him the American Academy Advantage Medicine people have had training and certifications from those two are almost universally going to be able to go I would so good the system of you instead of these strict functional things. I'm just natural paths versus practice versus medical doctors. Medical doctors generally have more privileges to write you stuff. But sometimes they can be more hidebound in my experience. Some of the very best people it doesn't matter. What matters is how many decades of experience to the have? I think it's twenty years of experience working on tough stuff. They're they're going to have special powers and at this point in your life, you can afford someone special powers do that. Brilliant, brilliant. Well, listen I would love to be on your show one day if you want that. But this is really great and Everybody Dave asprey. Wow. To change my life, I was already on this role but now I'm firmly on this road to be taking action tonight I really think everybody she check out what's the best place to find your stuff like Dave asprey dot com and Scott links to everything bulletproof radio I'm always on Instagram and facebook brilliant I will be there myself tonight that's the show right after this in fact, Dave thanks a lot for coming on I really appreciate your great really great inspirational and a gift to humanity seriously. then.

How Metal Toxicity Affects Health And Aging
"You're going to one hundred eighty you're going to be full of metals metals inhibit metal Kendra function. They lower your testosterone because hair loss they caused grain and they cause cancer As was actually a whole bunch of other diseases you've got to lower your exposure to them and you have to get rid of them as you live. Hi I'm K- pro. At one of the producers of the doctors pharmacy podcast genetic variations. Make some people more prone to heavy metal toxicity. Some of us are very very good at detoxifying while others are not in this mini episode Dr Hyman shares his personal experience with mercury poisoning in conversation with founder and CEO of bulletproof. Three Sixty Dave asprey. Let's listen in there's compounds I read about called key leading agents that you can take with your food when I eat Sushi. You need the fat from. I'm fishing. I take cla which is a fracture. Also while Klerl will bind to the mercury in the Gutsy poop it out but clearly will not pull mercury out of your brain so so what you end up doing is over time you lower the incidence of metal entering your body and you slowly remove. What's in your body and I talk about how to do that in the book but if you don't know that metals matter and you're just sort can you roger how much metals you have in your system and yeah there's two ways in supreme that I write about the gold standard is you collect urine and see what your body's excreting with or without an agent that may cause you to release more and more common and cheaper way but less telling is a hair test and there's usefulness for both of those but you can go to functional medicine doctor and say I'd like to do have medals test and they're usually order a urine test for you and it's it's very common to find elevated mercury and lead in fact if you're over forty you're probably going to find it? Yeah so here. He let me share the practicing physician. Who won suffered suffered from mercury poisoning added to and to have straighted literally tens of thousands of people with mental poisoning and have done tens of thousands of tests? And I would say it's probably one of the most ignored and underappreciated causes of chronic disease. He's that doctors don't know how to think about well. Measure and personally for me. I lived in China. It got huge exposure to mercury. I don't have great jeans detoxifying. And it destroyed every system to my body yet destroyed my gut. I had diarrhea for for years and bloating and pain. It destroyed my might Aqa Andrea. I develop chronic fatigue syndrome and there was such an extreme version that my muscle enzymes were high my CBK's wok six six hundred. My liver was affected. My immune system was affected. I sort of rashes and sores all over I was completely cognitively impaired. I couldn't focus distinct concentrate remember I was you know in your your thoughts. This is like you know twenty five years ago and I was so bad and I literally had to become an expert in mercury and heavy metals detoxification. And I've written a lot about it but I think you know I would say that for many of my patients who suffer from weird a strange elements. It's ready things to look at and the only way to really know what your body burden is. You can look at your blood but that only ninety. Yeah I mean if you're eating a lot of Sushi you'll it's high but I'd ages stop. It'll go away. You can look at your urine but you're in also wasn't going to be high unless there's an current exposure so if the lead foundry or your you know eating tons of Sushi I might see a little bit of mercury the only way to really look at your body burden. It's a challenge test where you take a pill. It's a key later. And you clicks this year and for six hours hair tests also check for fish methylmercury which is where we mostly get our our mercury from that that also will go away if you haven't eaten fish for awhile and then there's another test that looks at the blood work that measures the inorganic mercury which comes from pollution in or from fillings. And that's called the quicksilver test and that that is surprisingly when people have a mouthful of fillings and you can see the difference between fish or or or or Ah Dental Mercury. I and the treatments are depending on the person you know can be very aggressive depending on what they need a guy. I've a patient. WHO's got this terrible herbal autoimmune disease and giving her intravenous support other people can do is oral support? There's medications but it's it's it's a whole process. It has to be done safely. I think your point is really well taken. I think it's an under served. An under appreciated component of medicine and a hopefully one day. We'll get on board with this just because it's just I mean it was interesting there was there was a An article near Time said I was quoted and it was based on the special forces. Oh yeah the says get lead right. Yeah so this guy. This guy came to see me. Whose job was he was a special forces guy who was a blast expert so they go blow up stuff you know blow up doors up up this and they had to train and practice and they had indoor practice training and and these guys were getting all sick and out you know the special forces? This guys aren't lingers. They're not Weiner's I don't feel good at work. Those aren't those guys either guys who stay in freezing ice water for an hour and swim right right right and do four thousand pushups and like you know. Don't sleep for three days. I mean these guys are not Weiner's humans and so the guy came in. I'm like okay. Well tell me you want your job like oh we blow stuff up we shoot like Oh okay and so I said let's check your heavy metals. And they were sky high. We put him there whole program. He was metabolically. Quiz system was working. He was overweight. PREDIABETES had cognitive functioning immune issues gut issues all got better and then he started sending special forces guys to us us. We start treating them and they just got better and one of them was written about in the New York Times how has his medical crew and everybody dismissed him and he completely turned around and the guy who is the lead expert at Mount Sinai who measures bone lead which is the most accurate way to measure leading the body. It's not an easy easy available commercial test but it's a very powerful research tool. He said these guys had really high levels of lead and he said on the follow up tests he saw the level's come way down and he says he's never seen that in his entire experience and this is a guy who was an expert in. How can you be an extra in lead in not know how to the body drives me nuts? It's not because it's not seen as a problem acute poisoning yes chronic poisoning. No and there's nothing you can do about it. It's just nonsense and there's in fact an FDA approved drug called the MSA yes Zayn for lead removal and actually removes mercury. So I think you know people listening if you have any stranger where two elements if you have anxiety. Depression Russian insomnia autoimmune disease gut issues fatigue. Cognitive issues it may well be heavy metals and And you need to find a good functional medicine doctor to help you diagnose that are you gonNa Functional Medicine Dot. Org Ifm Dot Org and you can find a practitioner. Who May know how to do this? I I'm GonNa go a little bit broader than go. If you are over fifty you and you have not gone through a course of action. You are not doing aging right. You have to do this if you are alive in the modern world and you wanna live to a highly functional old age and the reason I say this is that the safe. EPA limits for lead us to be twenty parts per million and they cut his forty goes forty two twenty ten to five five and now they're finding even down to one. They're seeing cognitive impairment and kids cognitive impairment and increased risk of cardiovascular disease and now the people who are the experts in letter saying quote there is no safe limit of lead in. If you are forty or fifty you cannot be alive and not have a lead burden in your body. You must remove it and it's not that hard especially if you're not really sick it's not gonna be a big deal and it's so strange because medicine just ignores this but in the journal circulation which which is one of the top cardiology journals. It was a paper number years ago that showed that if your level was over two which is quote within the normal which which by the way affects almost forty percent of the population. Has Your risk of stroke goes up eighty nine percent. The risk of a heart attack goes up one hundred and fifty percent. The risk of death goes up from a heart attack fifty five percent and this is more than smoking or cholesterol. Wake and it's like. Why doesn't your cardiologists talk to you about this? So what are the. What are the basic tips? If you're not getting a key. lated what are the basic tips for detoxifying detoxifying not just metals or you mean metals metals. Like how I mean. How or it all works for everything but how do you? One of my favorite compounds is glued Afyon and you can increase glucose levels by increasing vitamin C. BY TAKING NS Beatles osteen I- manufacturer glorify on pill. You can get intravenous glutathione which acid and you do you go to find out your clinics right. Yeah Yeah and we do it at upgrade labs in La for people to recover better. I'm Alpha LIPOIC. ACID is another thing selenium can help and and Zinc zinc can help the natural key later Cilantro but surprisingly. You WANNA take to launch only after you've removed most of the metal from your body because Asandra can actually move heavy metals into the brain because it's one of the things that can also penetrate the blood barrier so you go through and you say you know I'm just going to build some of these in on a regular because base and then you need fiber and P and sweat shocking.

"That's I think where a lot of these folks get into trouble is you're almost required to declare a camp that you're in whether it's nature nurture environment or genetics which seems obvious to me is of course corset is a combination of all these things not unlike culture in our biology is a combination of what we are as a species and all these things but there seems to be some inclination to plant a flag and we found the genetic marker to say that it's one thing or another and we're infamously terrible creatures as study right because we have so many layers going on besides our genetic. It's not just us man it. It just scientific Hubris. Check this out. Every mouse study you've ever seen dino feels manner woman feeding them is no clue well. Here's the deal mice change their behavior. One woman feeds them versus a man. We controlled for all variables bullshit you did you did not record the gender age of your lab assistant and you also didn't record whether they they were wearing. Cologne or not because also affected the mouse so we are not controlling all the variables even know what variables matter yet huge amounts of science masturbation. It feels good look look but nothing happened at the end. That was productive. Yeah they often just really confirm a gut intuition we had all along and it's like all comfirmation formation by at least somehow and I think it's done subconsciously. I don't even think they're trying to manipulate enough but I just think you manaf you. Find what you're looking for. People want answers for thanks so oh you're. GonNa try to find one regardless yeah. You're the real massive things are uncovered is in clinical trial with that that means is you go to the doctor. I've been here for forty years and I've been treating the same thing I noticed these patterns and they happen over time in if I use this it works and if I don't use this works in the greatest breakthroughs that I've ever covered on my show the stuff I write about him. My books are largely from people who just treated ten thousand people and noticed it and and then they say well. There's a study from my source study in a lab. It says that can happen until like bullshit it can happen. I treat people and if I do this again well. If I don't get well so don't Oh show me your stupid study young Turk into my office and I'll show you a pitching it better yeah. That's what's been missing. Almost like bullying from academia of the actual doctors doctors on the street who are healers moves of the people who saved my life my brain back on well. I had the personal experience of trying every single western option for sorry Arthur. Itis in my wife forced me to our of eight cleanse. I did it. Lo and behold my body felt better and I left going again. No disrespect to the community I was like I don't know that they know why what they're saying is working but they have been studying people for ten thousand years in keeping records and they've seen some patterns and they figured some shit out now whether they know biochemical what's happening is kind of irrelevant to me because I feel better but I'm very much caught between pseudoscience scares me. Eastern stuff often scares me. I hear a lot of people in my circle talking about. They had a blood panel and they've figured this out on me. I don't really think we can watch your food interact the away this blood panelist is saying that they observed so. I think it's sometimes I guess I'd feel better about it. If everyone just kinda owned the well there's a mystery but this is working they make any sense it makes great sense and the truth of the matter is that until we can take Adams and line them up and make a life. Even just a single single celled life. You're completely fooling ourselves that we know what's going on there. we can now take an embryo. pull the guts out and put another one in. We don't know how to make that first. I spark happen so what's up with that. So all the stories we tell ourselves with the lady who discovered the endorphin receptors in the brain and share sure this amazing book and there's is Ken per is called the molecules of emotion and she died before interview which is one of my my regrets she was an nih researcher and just kind of it's tough lady in over the course of her career out of Agassi's describes how she kind of softened and towards the end they discover the opiate receptors like how it actually works like her work led Ed to what we know about addiction today and she said well. I finally went excellent and I I met these Shamans and I was trying to explain to them about opiate receptors now all these amazing neuro zero chemicals move round in the brain and they started laughing and what isn't asked the translator in trauma looked at the Shaman and he said they actually think all these things exist. Yeah we see Spooky goblins moving back and forth. It doesn't matter what you call them or would you put this amazing scientific framework. I'll tell you western science works because we can can make cool drugs that target receptors. We know more and it's the best time ever to live two hundred eighty but do we really know the mechanism or do we think we know the mechanism well. I'm not sure yeah I remember like getting lots of blood work done for the arthritis and they go. Oh you know you need vitamin. D You need vitamin. D Lack Vitamin D ause inflammation and then I heard someone on Howard stern his doctor and the doctor goes no. They have it completely backwards when you have inflammation. It takes all your vitamin D so it doesn't matter how much you took it. It's actually the sign that you have inflammation. It's not the cause of the inflammation. It's the downriver result of inflammation. I'm like well fuck everything now. I don't know which ones true and it's just endlessly Melissa Maddening really because Ellie so that's something that you talk about a lot right. I talked about it a lot and it also you're the ultimate Guinea pig. I had arthritis diagnose fourteen in my knees. I like all the diseases of aging before I was twenty seven and it was just a pain in the ass and I said you know this stuff supposed to work it says joins glucose amine and and you know what it actually worked so great. I perform this amazing scientific thing I I. I made hypothesis and tested. It and I observe the results. Emily stopped taking. It got worse. When I start taking better therefore it's helping right. That's what we can do. It's not that hard to do well. That's why I guess I got to the the point whereas like why not be oh. What's it cost you to try these things. I I've done so much stupid shit like this has no right to work but I have done multi take Chamonix trainings. I've been to Tibet to learn meditation from the masters a general kinds of crazy Chinese energy medicine acupuncture and I've tried boiled bags of herbs CBS because you know what they're probably not. GonNa kill me and it might be interesting. This neuro feedback thing guy left my body. I've read my brain. The angry dickhead voice in my in my head is gone West. Stress levels are lower. I do more like it's been worth it but I've also done some stupid stuff. They didn't do anything but I'm okay with that and if you have the experience again again we both can acknowledge that we are terrible observers of ourselves first and foremost. I think all of us are pretty bad at that but if you had the experience where you try something it works. Have you ever thought US up. Oh that was placebo. I bought into Placebo which I just WANNA point out. A doctor told me placebo is as real. L. Is the real medicine if it has the outcome. It has the outcome so it's kind of irrelevant but have you ever found yourself going. Oh I think that one goes in the Placebo Oh category every year on the biohacking conference. It's it's going to seventh year and last your head Robbie Richmond a friend of mine WHO's electron stage. He sells the X. Pill doc is a purple pill that says Placebo on the bottle you take it and you put in a little glass fanciulla financial thing and write on little chuck thing on there what you want it to be you say your intention and then you swallow the pill and you know what he's got clinical trials that show that shit works that is the usefulness of Placebo sharks sure what I do and I'll tell you right now the vast majority of homeopathic stuff I've tried. I really can't tell it. It's doing it right. That's kind of where I took that gloomy or glucose meeting yeah. I don't think I ever felt anything. I'll tell you I was of that mindset to and I found out Glucose Amino. HCL The form really mattered because the normal glucose means It doesn't do anything as far as I can tell but it might other people and for me that was the important variable yeah right and also I had pretty darned severe knee pain when you're fourteen and you try and play soccer and all I really noticed notice said it was packing my quality life so I absolutely think I've also I I will still try some homeopathic remedies from people who are masters of other field and have had profound results with patients and know their shit. You know who those people are and if they say try these little drops charge them myself using the power of moon beavers well. Hey who am I look. I'm not saying this for forty years. So the worst so happens. We'll take some drops of water and I've had a few times where I don't think that was placebo. I did not expect that to happen like holy crap. So how can I know I can't. I just can't wear it very often. It's a weasel word but I'll tell you I'm not going to know and it's okay right. I know people I think in general people need to be a little more comfortable not knowing stuff. You almost never do think you know and you feel safe. When you think you know but you don't know Oh right right right and yeah people go like not as many anymore but he used to getting debates with people about religion quite often I used to the total waste of time but quite politics on top on the religion to friends and family members it introduced that you know those conversations generally would always get to a point where it's like you think the Big Bang explains. It and I'm like I understand the Big Bang Theory I. I don't know that I believe the Big Bang theory. I don't give me it's okay with me that I don't know. It doesn't for me require that insert some other thing. I don't know to to your bandy.

"Everyone here looks like there aren't fitness calendar. Yeah like there's the beach. I'M NOT GONNA take my shirt so yeah. It's very intimidating but you failed out of there and then. How did you find your way into employment. In that realm. I got a degree the and I didn't technically quite fail out but I filled out my major so I ended up going to California state and getting Green Information Systems. My whole deal is a computer sciences borings brings. All Hell is the technical equivalent of masturbating. Let's think about this incredible problem. In principle from nothing productive happened at the end of year to year like whacking backing off thing and I'm like to theoretical not through Tacoma guys could we learned brought the Internet because I just sold the teachers to fourteen countries over the Internet and we have no classes on on networking Internet anything useful and the professors are like and so I went to school and I got a degree and he's a computer to actually solve the problem album that we face today in business and in life and it turns out Mike was in artificial intelligence is called decision support systems so I got an early degree in and that kind of stuff and I can't imagine that the curriculum them even reflects remotely. What is today right. I mean that was it was the foundation was was in his embassy effect. They told us you're not allowed to say it official intelligence because everyone will make fun of you because it's never gonNA happen. I'm like you guys are so wrong. It is going to happen. We've got machine learning and AI but because I've spent twenty years in Tak those are the those are my people. That's how I think the whole biohacking new word in the English language. It's just the same same kinda hacking we did to make the Internet pointed at our body because the decisions made in your body are very similar to how disturbed systems on the network will in that. They're binary. Sorry there on or off. They release something. They don't really some not being binary. it's about being a whole bunch of tiny decisions made all over the place that you can't possibly really no all like decentralized. It's like a real a full-size math. The United States would be kind of useless. You can't ever knew everything so you so. How does your body know what to do. When individual decisions are being made inside the cells in your risk like how do they know what to do in house. My brain was going on there well. There's a whole system but it's it's made of tiny. The decisions made all over the place that coalesce into Oh. There's my ego right. There's my desire to have sex with that person. There's why I have to say yes to the cookie. It's not coming from a conscious thing in your brain is coming from distributed stuff everywhere yeah and even now by the time someone hears this podcast. It's broken into billions of pieces and spread all all over this one. We went that way in a decision was made here that no one knows how or why it was made yet. It worked same thing happening in your cells and so that's how I can write like superhuman. I can write the books I write because I think like a computer hacker okay. Let's inch towards that so I you you do well. I imagine financially and all these different endeavors you've to help start companies. Kinda did twenty six. I made six million dollars. Okay that's six million more than twenty seven solid the company that held Google's Google's first servers and that was a CO founder of part of that company. Okay the professional service thing. We did one hundred million a quarter. I like all these big business. I lost when I was twenty eight. This is what I I wanted to stay cool for two years. We'll get into all the fun science stuff but you give someone who didn't for lack of a better word. Get laid often in then. You give them six million dollars. There's at twenty six. What do you do with that money. Flashy stuff you look at your buddy. This company made more money than they should have and you say eh. I'll be happy to have ten million dollars. Yes I literally said those words like the biggest asshole words of my life and on one hand. I knew I'm like I'm set for life life. I'M GONNA go get A. PhD in Psychopharmacology was my plan all get to hang out here for two more years but I I like making stuff change and so it kept getting bigger and bigger jobs in the company and I was it was illegal to sell the stock because I was in charge of of looking every acquisition of another company any so I was always inside. Information watched my wealth okay so you had basically six million dollars the stock at one point and then that's a very common occurrence Chris. I mean I've literally could have sold. It could've just just said I'm done but it wasn't ethical legal general counsel whatever's. I I took the high road. I didn't sell the stock doc because I knew things about the company that weren't public and it cost me twenty years of working and I did get a used. BMW and a down payment on a house out of that at the end of the day okay well. That sounds terrible things so you just said you you wanted to go. Get a doctorate degree in pharmacology so my assumption then is during this period even though you're probably experiencing some element of control over your life because you have the skill set and it's bearing fruit. There's some rewards awards happening but I'm I'm assuming you're not you don't have an accompanying self of peace or contentment or happiness that you had told yourself you would have if if you had those things I was house miserable when I was in a bad relationship for years. I was highly anxious but no it 'cause. You're anxious. You probably don't Eric because that's just how it's always it's been right and I found I was thirty like you know what I just like. Had this long failed relationship. I just lost all this money like. I'm completely miserable. I don't know what else to do. Kind of you know done what at the time I felt like. It was a rock bottom but now look both my legs. I wasn't at rock-bottom. There's always levels guys who are are in ten thousand times worse than I ever was who are happier and more peaceful home so like. I felt like that yeah in a we call it a high bottom. Yeah there you go but but the relevant pieces you oh you are so miserable that you are now open to change that otherwise. You're not you nailed it. I I definitely got there and I finally was like you should go go to this impersonal development retreat thing like look. I'm an engineer. I already take smart drugs already know about food. I've already lost fifty pounds. I feel like I've got control and and like I don't even tell you what they do there because you'll hate you'll hate overtake just but just going right. I'm so miserable I. I'm just GONNA go and it. It was transformational psychology based. This is I've interviewed. The father that feels standoff is ninety four years old. This is a guy who gave three thousand people. LSD in Czechoslovakia when it was legal and he's a psychologist going. This stuff doesn't work. This drug does work and here's what it's doing and they're like oh Dave. Ptsd there's even when you were born. I'm like this is the biggest bunch of hippy bullshit ever again. Let us show you and I mean they had me like a like a butterfly Pinson one of those wax spores and I call Shit like they awfully deep dark secrets in these shouldn't I had the cordray tarmac when I was born. I came into the world wired at unconscious level to be like like some trying to kill me so I was. I'M NOT GONNA connects people. I'm GonNa just protect myself was on all those fistfights when I was a kid right. Why did I look at normal to help me like I got a handle this all by myself so I was not connecting to people for the first thirty years of my life because I came into the world thinking someone's trying to kill me over that life is a lot better. Isn't it fascinating thank you that makes me think immediately of the Vanity Fair article I read. I did not read the book the Big Short but then I saw the movie but at any rate the guy who predicted the subprime mortgage crisis and got all the credit default swaps purchased by all these huge places that should have known better. He you probably know this story. His son was having problems in school. They said we think he's autistic. I know he's not well. Here's the questionnaire you tell me how many he answers yes to. He reads the questionnaire. He himself goes holy fuck. I'm answering. Yes to ninety percent ladies and he goes backwards in time says Omega because he had a glass eye so his whole narrative was oh. This glass is keeping me from connecting to people and that's everything everything and then finding out no. I think I'm on the spectrum. It wasn't the glass I similarly. I imagine you go. I was overweight as a kid that explains all my social awkwardness comes on the spectrum to all okay we're that. Phd Grandmother Engineering kind of is a good sign yeah and over kids ads and me on that same survey from Vanity Fair like forty five out of fifty. Oh really absolutely I until I until I learned social skills. I turn my brain on biologically and I did. She's four months of neuro feedback. I own run neuro feedback brain upgrade facility. I wouldn't have made eye contact. I didn't know how to do these are learned skills and like like repaired biology asperger's so right now recently and your friends with gunnery so you're aware of it and we love this. Guy Eric Topol there you know there's there's a lot of stuff going on about gut health and they're being very specific and my book to yeah that Syria that cat kids with autism have but the explanation I had heard prior to that which to me held with a lot of water. I have not read a study but prior to the computer revolution. You had all these people who would have normally not entered the workforce is totally true right so oh and now now you have all these people that there was no job for them prior to computers but now they're entering the workforce. That's where people meet and have kids so you would generally like. This was an explanation for the explosion. Asian of autism was just now. You have twos working together and the two and the to get together and they have kids now. The kids have four and it just wasn't happening for those people weren't co mingling and so. I wonder if it's some combination of all these things or even. Maybe their original autism was gut health related or something. Do you have a opinion on that without us getting killed back back when I had that six million dollars. I I started a nonprofit that I couldn't fund because I didn't have for autism research particularly adults this really affected my life and I was like Oh my God this explains so much yeah so I was really into this in the late ninety s and I've spoken at Autism one at the conference and looked at the the biology of it. There isn't one thing there's chronic neuro inflammation. That's usually autoimmune in other words your body for some reason starts to mess with your brain uh-huh the end result of that what caused it look it could have been aluminum could've been mercury. Toxic mold is a big contributor. it can be nutritional imbalances a hormonal imbalances some types of trauma but here's the weird thing when people run marathons the type of gut bacteria. They have changes when they're training or during the their training okay wait. If you train more your gut bacteria change to make you better at marathons what the hell right so to the bacteria caused marathon no them back. It's all chicken and the egg you'd have to prove that these bacteria cause autism and they probably do they certainly tied to Alzheimer's and Parkinson's and all of the plaque in your arteries. He's comes from your gut bacteria enough from what you eat now proven in two studies like that. KINDA throws a lot of stuff. We used to believe on its head so I wouldn't wanNA. You say that these things 'cause it but are there is a network marker at least that we're aware there isn't a single one but you can say people who have been called. H. L. A. D. R. Twenty percent of the population appellation. They're more sensitive to mold. They're more sensitive to lime disease. They can excrete toxins as well and they're like autism so if your parents are are autism autism related sort of things and they have you you're at a higher genetic risk because he can excrete toxins very well and then you end up with some trauma you end up with you. You live in a basement like I did as a kid with toxic mold that contributed to my obesity and all these other things and then like. Oh there you go. You got it yeah well..

"All right. Here's Dave Asprey. Dave, tell me your backstory because you're one of the guys that essentially pioneered the biohacking movement unless I just don't know about everything that came before an which is possible. But I know that in the beginning on ramp was bulletproof executive on the you're not still have that brand. And then a handful of other people who were doing things that I can't even remember. And then suddenly I took a nap and woke up and bulletproof coffee was all over the world. What happened is it's been twenty years doing research in a nonprofit for anti-aging talking with all these punctual medicine people. And other experts in nutrition, and I realized there's a whole bunch of bodybuilders of here in pro athletes over here in navy seals over here in astronaut recovery. People hear neurologist, and none of them talk. And I wanted full control my of my own biology, and I said we've got a name for this. So I came up with this name biohacking, and I wrote it in my first blog post this info graphic about it. And I didn't trademark name. I said, you know, I wanted to be a community trademark bulletproof and bulletproof executives. That's my company. And it's in the biohacking field started the first biohacking conference six years ago one hundred people shop and last year, we had I think about three thousand people in a little bit under three hundred twenty eight hundred or something and we're having our next biking conference in April fifth in LA, and what happened is this year? Miriam Webster is added biohacking to the dick. Yeah. And I'm in the definition to which is really. Oh, that's so they're calling me like on whatever that was Fox News or. Something on TV like the father biohacking, which is which is really cool. I've never been a dictionary before you know, you can make the Forbes list, but you really can't really big in the dictionary is even hard. I was those kind of surreal moment. Somebody texted me. Like, did you see this? No, it's awesome. Yeah. So the ideas is you can change the environment around you an inside view to get control of your own biology. The first use of biking was in ninety two but it was more about inserting jellyfish genes into your cat. So it'll glow and things like that. So are also cool though, pretty cool to try that on yourself. I was going to like to my sister. When I was young, but didn't work it didn't work. I'll just call her with yellow markers. I was forced their fair, but she's still gloat at least for a little while. I remember when I was taking those glow sticks as a kid that you on Halloween, and I would pour them all over myself. And I'd be like, look, I'm going on my mom would freak out. Because who knows what's in those? There's no way like it's in a thick plastic shell because you don't want your kid to chew it open. Right. But I managed I haven't determined. I've bathed myself and that stuff more times than should. Yeah. Absolutely. I can imagine. I don't think that counts as backing. But it was preliminary. No, I mean, it might be it might be the opposite. And a lot of ways you also had to lose a bunch of weight and everything right? I mean, how did you originally get into this? I know it was was not because you're like, I'm still healthy even healthier. It was sort of the opposite. Yeah. I had arthritis diagnosed when I was fourteen in my knees is that genetic then no, it's probably environmental and knowing no knew it was at the time..

"With Dave Asprey. Today's cool fact of the day is that astronomers have measured all the Starlight that's managed to escape into space over the history of the universe and equals about four times. Ten to the eighty fourth power particles of light, that's roughly equivalent to all the photons. The sun would emit if it burned for a hundred billion trillion years, which is a little bit longer than the five billion. Or so years that has left before we really have to find a new place to live and the universe itself is only thirteen point seven billion years old. And surprisingly, we just found evidence that blue archaeologists that you wouldn't believe they found tools, and butchered bones, two point four million years old. They clearly weren't from humans. They were from some pre protozoan, but we've been working on getting to where we. For two point four million years. And we think on timescales like that amazing stuff happens. And just the fact that we could measure and do the math to figure out how much light there is in the universe is insane. Because the researchers use ten years of data from the nasty Fermi gamma Ray space telescope, which maps the entire sky every three hours, and when they put the stuff together they figured out that even though the the sky is dark.
