A Blueprint to Overhaul the American Food & Pharma Systems – Calley Means : 1146

Today, Calley Means joins the show to march onward on his war path to changing the incentives of modern health. He’s a champion of food and lifestyle practices as medicine—and, in May of this year, he’s putting out a new book on the subject which we outline today, called Good Energy.His sister, Dr. Casey Means, is the co-author of Good Energy. You know her from a past appearance on this show and as the founder of Levels so this mission really is a family affair in the best way possible.Going from a food lobbyist to the other side of the fence, Calley is a deeply serious and dedicated champion for the people. But he brings much more to the table today than a polished delivery and a new book; he is also the co-founder of True Medicine, which works to connect tax-advantaged spending to healthy food and exercise. It’s helped hundreds of thousands of people access affordable care by leveraging the convoluted systems currently in place to block them from doing so—no easy task.In this conversation, Calley lays the foundation for our food culture as it stands today—bleak, corrupt, poisoned, sick, and getting sicker. We deconstruct the layers of federal agencies and historical precedent that have brought us to this point, and we’re direct in our suggestions (demands) on how to fix it.And all the facts are laid bare. Dots are connected in broad daylight, on network television, and within the algorithms that power our social feeds. Our kids are at stake, and the only option is to take affirmative action on what we know is right. (00:01:19) Calley’s Inspirations & Metabolic Mission(00:11:16) Redefining the Meaning of Medicine (00:19:21) Is America a Viable Place To Raise Healthy Kids?(00:30:41) Meaningfully Changing Healthcare Incentives(00:42:56) Now What—How Does Society Make Positive Change?(00:49:34) The Media’s Role in Society’s False Narratives(00:56:49) Undoing the Damage of the Food PyramidSponsorsARRC LED | The perfect device for daily home use.

Akashic Records 101: The Simple Spiritual Practice You Haven’t Heard of…Yet – Laura Coe : 1139

Today we’re talking about something a little different—the “weird,” esoteric, metaphysical stuff. I’m joined by Laura Coe, who was a successful healthcare tech entrepreneur before selling her company and returning to her passion for philosophy. She is now an author, certified life coach, and Akashic Records reader. Never heard of the Akashic Records? Laura explains exactly what they are, and how they can help you understand yourself on a deeper level to find more joy, peace, and prosperity in your life. We explore the big questions… Who can access the Records? How do you know if they’re even real? Then, we get into the nitty gritty… How do you learn to read them? What can you ask and not ask?

Change Absolutely Everything With One Hack – Robert Waldinger, M.D. - End of Year Best-Of Episode!

In this episode of The Human Upgrade you’ll meet Robert Waldinger, M.D., who leads an extraordinary scientific study on happiness that’s still going strong after eight decades. The study set out to understand human health by what made people thrive.Since 1938, the Harvard Study of Adult Development has tracked two groups of men and their families with the goal of discovering what really makes for a good life. Along the way, thousands of questions were asked, and hundreds of measurements were taken—from brain scans to blood work. Three strong themes emerged from the study: Social connections are really good for you. Loneliness kills.It’s the quality of your close relationships that matters.Good close relationships don’t just protect your body, they protect your brain. Dr. Waldinger combined those lifelong case studies with modern psychological research in his new book, co-authored with Marc Schulz, Ph.D., “The Good Life: Lessons from the World's Longest Scientific Study of Happiness." This discussion gives you real-life tools to hack your happiness. You’ll learn things like:how relationships improve your physical, mental and emotional health. (More than you know!)how to evaluate the effect of your relationships on your well-being. (Don’t be dragged down.)what social fitness is and how to practice it. (Yes, it’s a flex.)ways to enliven and energize your relationships. (Energy totally matters.)why casual and work relationships matter more than you think. (A surprisingly big contribution.)

Change Absolutely Everything With One Hack – Robert Waldinger, M.D. - End of Year Best-Of Episode! : 1117

In this episode of The Human Upgrade you’ll meet Robert Waldinger, M.D., who leads an extraordinary scientific study on happiness that’s still going strong after eight decades. The study set out to understand human health by what made people thrive.Since 1938, the Harvard Study of Adult Development has tracked two groups of men and their families with the goal of discovering what really makes for a good life. Along the way, thousands of questions were asked, and hundreds of measurements were taken—from brain scans to blood work. Three strong themes emerged from the study: Social connections are really good for you. Loneliness kills.It’s the quality of your close relationships that matters.Good close relationships don’t just protect your body, they protect your brain. Dr. Waldinger combined those lifelong case studies with modern psychological research in his new book, co-authored with Marc Schulz, Ph.D., “The Good Life: Lessons from the World's Longest Scientific Study of Happiness." This discussion gives you real-life tools to hack your happiness. You’ll learn things like:how relationships improve your physical, mental and emotional health. (More than you know!)how to evaluate the effect of your relationships on your well-being. (Don’t be dragged down.)what social fitness is and how to practice it. (Yes, it’s a flex.)ways to enliven and energize your relationships. (Energy totally matters.)why casual and work relationships matter more than you think. (A surprisingly big contribution.)

Reversing Age: The Quest for Immortality with Bryan Johnson : 1115

Today is a long-awaited show with none other than Bryan Johnson, an entrepreneur, venture capitalist, author, and professional rejuvenation athlete on a mission to discover the next evolution of humankind. While Bryan is well known in the longevity space, I’ve been a fan of his work for years because of his neuroscience background. Bryan started a company called Kernel, which makes devices that monitor and record brain activity. Kernel uses what I would call the most comprehensive way of looking at the human brain ever. He is the founder of OS Fund and Braintree, and he spearheads Project Blueprint, an anti-aging experiment where he’s spent multiple years and millions of dollars developing an algorithm to live longer. In today’s wide-ranging talk, we discuss the future of optimizing our brains with AI—delving into all things biohacking and longevity while exploring complicated questions like… Can you die of loneliness? And… Are your critics making you old?Plus, we talk testosterone—an often triggering topic, but an essential conversation. Bryan shares his perspective on why he would rather be respected by people in the 25th century than understood now. Stick around for his surprising takes on olive oil, body hair, and saunas. (00:59) Biohacking The Brain (05:34) Are Your Critics Making You Old?(12:52) What Makes Bryan Tick(20:09) The Longevity-Loneliness Connection (28:27) Accounting For Bio Individuality in Health Protocols (39:09) Does Having a Partner Help You Live Longer? (47:59) Olive Oil vs. Saturated Fats (54:39) Talking Testosterone (01:07:52) Expanding Consciousness with Psychedelics (01:12:06) Questions from the Live Audience ResourcesDave Asprey’s NEW Book ‘Smarter Not Harder’ is out now: https://daveasprey.com/books Website: protocol.bryanjohnson.comKernel: kernel.comRead: Don’t Die by Zero Instagram: @bryanjohnson_ YouTube: Bryan Johnson Linkedin: Bryan Johnson The Human Upgrade is produced by Crate Media.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

How Intermittent Fasting Works for Women! – Cynthia Thurlow, NP

Cynthia Thurlow joins the show to talk about how intermittent fasting can help women change their body, metabolic system and brain function. She has tips for women at all stages: from active menstrual cycles to perimenopause to menopause.Cynthia is a Johns Hopkins-trained nurse practitioner and functional nutritionist founded and serves as CEO of Everyday Wellness Project. She holds a Master of Science degree in Nursing and Functional Nutrition certifications with advanced trainings in Endocrinology and Gastroenterology. Her career in healthcare includes nearly 20 years of emergency medicine and cardiology experience. She brings a broad perspective when working with women to improve the state of their health. “I really start from a foundational level talking to women about fasting,” Cynthia says. “It's really honoring our own unique physiology. It's leaning into that menstrual cycle. It's leaning into the lifestyle piece that so much of us forget to talk about with our patients, our sleep quality, stress management, anti-inflammatory nutrition, our exercise quality, our connection with nature, all of which are critically important.”She also addresses diet dogma that frustratingly persists, even with established and emerging science about the benefits of intermittent fasting.She tackles this outdated dogma (and a lot more!) in her new book, “Intermittent Fasting Transformation: The 45-Day Program for Women to Lose Stubborn Weight, Improve Hormonal Health, and Slow Aging.”“[Intermittent fasting] restores our intrinsic rhythms, burns fat, regenerates our health right down to the cellular level, and stabilizes our hormones,” Cynthia says in her book. “In turn, we are less likely to develop obesity, diabetes, vascular diseases, and autoimmune disorders.”At the end of this conversation, you’ll have the tools to decide if intermittent fasting is the right choice for the state of your own health.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
