In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is a leading voice for change in social and corporate policy to bring greater harmony between work and the rest of life—especially for parents.Stewart Friedman currently is an organizational psychologist and professor of management practice at the Wharton School. He’s an award-winning professor and bestselling author who founded Wharton’s Leadership Program and its Work/Life Integration Project nearly 30 years ago. Flexibility is a big part of that integration, and the timing couldn’t be better. The realities of working at home—with kids—is settling in for many familiesA simple acknowledgement of “I'm a human being beyond the work exchange that we're doing right now, and so are you, so let's deal with that,” is necessary, Stew says. “We're being forced to do that now and I think that that's helping everybody. It does require, as I say, some adjustment and flexibility, but I think if you negotiate it just a bit up front it makes everything a lot easier.”In his new book, “Parents Who Lead: The Leadership Approach You Need to Parent with Purpose, Fuel Your Career, and Create a Richer Life,” parents learn how to apply leadership principles to their parenting style and drive values in ways that benefits the whole family. In our discussion, Stew gives great tips on how parents can uplevel their parenting game, especially during this time when coronavirus is forcing so many of you to make changes to your home and family life.“Parents who lead are those who have a sense of what matters to them and they're figuring out, just as we all are, each day a new way to take a step in a direction that's closer and closer to that world that they see as a better tomorrow for them and the people that they care about,” Stew says.Enjoy the show! And get more resources at Dave.Asprey/podcasts. 
In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is Jamie Metzl, a leading futurist, geopolitical expert, science fiction novelist, media commentator and a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council. He served in the White House, State Department, and United Nations.In 2019, he was appointed to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) expert advisory committee on developing global standards for the governance and oversight of human genome editing. Jamie’s work with the WHO and his background in international relations gives him a unique perspective on the coronavirus. It another great connection, his newest book “Hacking Darwin: Genetic Engineering and the Future of Humanity” leads us right into a discussion about genetic engineering to help fight viruses. “We like to imagine ourselves in harmony with nature, but we're at war with nature,” Jamie says. There are reasons to both fear and be excited about the possiblities of genetic engineering.Jamie also provides advisory services to governments, businesses, and institutions about the best ways to understand, predict, and prepare for revolutionary and converging technological, social, and geopolitical change. The coronavirus pandemic set in motion an evolving series of crises around the world—from governance to health to economic and, finally, to political.“We have a huge fight ahead of us,” Jamie says. “The world on the other side is going to be very different from what it is going in, but now's the time we need to be thinking about what we want that world to look like, and making sure that it's a world that reflects our best values.” Enjoy the show! And get more resources at Dave.Asprey/podcasts. 
This episode of Bulletproof Radio is a special in-person podcast at the Milken Global Conference in Abu Dhabi with Deepak Chopra.Deepak Chopra, M.D., FACP, is a world-renowned pioneer in integrative medicine and personal transformation. TIMEmagazine described him as “one of the top 100 heroes and icons of the century.” He’s been exploring the intersection of science and spirituality for decades. Immersed in the study and practice of meditation, Ayurveda and mind-body-soul connection, his teachings have greatly influenced our modern understanding of the self. His long scholarship and research of human consciousness has furthered our understanding of what’s real and what’s possible.“In terms of human potential, metareality isn’t outer space but the pure, unbounded consciousness that lies at the source of the mind,” he says in our interview.“Consciousness is the knowing element in every experience, whether it's perception, or mental, or emotional, or imagination,” Deepak continues. “Any sensation, any perception, any feeling, any thought is constantly bubbling out of consciousness. And we have constructed a physical universe out of it, which is brilliant, actually, because, in a way, humans are representing the infinite as this experience.”We discuss what it means to be “beyond human” based on Deepak’s 90th book: Metahuman: Unleashing Your Infinite Potential. You’ll learn how to question reality, move past limitations constructed by your mind, and enter a new state of awareness. And when you realize a “reality without limits,” you’ll be able to realize your full human potential.Enjoy the show! And get more resources at Dave.Asprey/podcasts. 
In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is known as "the woman who wants to genetically engineer you," and a leading voice for genetic cures.Liz Parrish founded and serves as CEO of BioViva Sciences USA Inc., a bioinformatics company actively working to extend healthy lifespans using gene therapy. It’s looking specifically at how gene therapy works in humans and how regenerative genes work in human bodies. Its partner company, Integrative Health Systems, helps people get access to these technologies today.A strong champion of progress and education for the advancement of gene therapy, Liz firmly supports our right and our ability to hack our own DNA.And she definitely walks her talk: In 2015 she became the first person in the world to take dual gene therapies to treat aging. One of the ways was to use adeno-associated virus, called AAV.  “AAV doesn't essentially do what old gene therapy does,” she explains. “So, you don't get sick when you take it, because if you get sick then you're going to not uptake the genes. … And viruses are still the best gene delivery method there is. They get genes into the nucleus.”“Remember, these viruses are modifying you every year,” Liz says. “You get viruses and influenzas and things like that and they all do their little dance. We're just making them do a dance that only up-regulates therapeutic genes.”From increased muscle mass to mitochondria, and from clinical trials to affordability, our conversation about gene therapy takes you into new territory. Listen on to learn more about Liz’s personal experience, her longevity work, and how you can shape your own genes.Enjoy the show! And get more resources at Dave.Asprey/podcasts. 
In this special episode of Bulletproof Radio, microbiologist and geneticist David Sinclair, Ph.D., gives a thoroughly researched perspective on the coronavirus, plus concrete steps you can take and lifestyle changes you can make to potentially lower your own risk.We cover food, fasting and fitness. A range of supplements. The research behind and benefits of a vaccine, the red tape of regulation, availability of home test kits, and much more. David is a professor in the department of Genetics at Harvard Medical School and founding director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for the Biological Mechanisms of Aging at Harvard. He’s best known for his extensive research on lifespan extension and treatment of diseases for aging. He’s an award-winning researcher whose work on resveratrol, NAD, and reprogramming to reverse aging have been widely hailed as major scientific breakthroughs.“Before this [coronavirus] happened, it was pretty obvious to me as someone who was already working in a company that was detecting viruses that these things were going to attack,” David says.Listen on for an in-depth discussion of recent coronavirus research and the COVID-19 strain that’s making its way around the world. Enjoy the show!Get links, resources and show notes at Dave.Asprey/podcasts.Watch the Instagram live Q&A video of Dave and David Sinclair, Ph.D., on YouTube.
In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is Dr. David Perlmutter, a board-certified neurologist and fellow of the American College of Nutrition. He’s spent his career focusing critical attention on brain health, lifestyle and nutrition that maintains health and prevents diseases.We spend time discussing the coronavirus impact on physical and mental health, as well as ways to keep the immune system going strong.“Fear destroys immune function, and so does lack of sleep, so does eating poorly, and all of these threaten our first line of defense,” Dr. Perlmutter says. “We can make decisions either from an impulsive part of the brain, the amygdala, that are short term and really interested only in “myself,” or we can tap into the prefrontal cortex and make decisions that have much more long view.”Dr. Perlmutter’s also a New York Times bestselling author of multiple books. His newest was co-written with his son Austin Perlmutter, M.D. Brain Wash: Detox Your Mind for Clearer Thinking, Deeper Relationships, and Lasting Happiness approaches America's growing epidemics of chronic illness from a simple premise: “We know what we need to do for better health and happiness, but our ability to make good decisions has been hijacked by unhealthy digital media usage, processed food, lack of sleep, chronic stress, and other aspects of modern life—and our physical and mental health is suffering.”He shows you how to recognize the negative impact of these exposures and then offers a set of practical interventions for reclaiming your brain and improving your health.As for coronavirus? “The sooner we realize that the party's not going to resume in the near term, and that life is forever going to be changed in our world, the better we can take a deep breath and become pragmatic and make decisions from the prefrontal cortex,” Dr. Perlmutter says.Enjoy the show!Get links, resources and show notes at Dave.Asprey/podcasts.Watch the Instagram live Q&A video of Dave and Dr. Perlmutter on YouTube.
In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’m talking to a guest who thinks, writes, and speaks about intentional living. Neil Pasricha is known as a top leadership keynote speaker, positive psychology researcher, and international bestselling author of several books, including You Are Awesome: How to Navigate Change, Wrestle with Failure, and Live an Intentional Life. He knows all about how to get to awesome and may just have solved the happiness equation. Gratitude is a big part of that.“You go around the dinner table, everybody has to say a rose from their day, a highlight, a gratitude, it has to be specific,” Neil says. “Some of this is a neurochemical game. I'm trying to get off dopamine. I want to get back to oxytocin here. I want to get back to touch, kissing, hugs, intimacy, love—those are the chemicals I want in my brain.”Neil’s also going to let you in on some secrets of confidence, vulnerability and love that will upgrade your resilience.“One way to get out of our heads, to get out of ourselves, and to build up resilience is to inhabit other consciousness,” he says. “I'm an advocate for wandering and the discovery process that cannot be replicated from I believe any algorithm other than the human mind.”Enjoy the show! … And get more resources at Dave.Asprey/podcasts. 
In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, we take a deep dive into the exciting topic of peptides—what they are, what they do and ideal dosages. We’ll also introduce you to a brand-new mitochondrial peptide that’s being looked at as a global antiaging molecule.My guest is a board-certified anesthesiologist and fellow-trained interventional pain medicine physician who graduated in the first-ever class of physicians trained and certified in peptide medicine. Dr. Heather Smith-Fernandez founded the Regenerative Institute of Medicine in Naples, Florida. She also founded Peptology™, the study and clinical application of peptides in living beings, both human and non-human. She uses peptides in all areas of her practice, such as regenerative treatments, advanced aesthetics, sexual health, hormone therapy, preventive medicine, and advanced lab testing. She also trains other physicians in specific Peptology™ protocols at her institute.Peptides are the real deal. After using them for a period of time, “There's a noticeable difference in how you feel, how you think, how you sleep,” Dr. Heather says.And while she works with a broad range of peptides, she has her favorites. “I think that my love with epitalon is... I love that peptide. I think it's the most understated peptide in our toolbox and I use it a lot. It has tremendous capability and it works in so many different areas. It's one of the true antiaging peptides, in my opinion, and it promotes better sleep, healthier sleep, much healthier sleep, and when it's used in combination with certain other peptides, you get a synergistic effect. Literally, people can feel their brain getting younger when they're using epitalon regularly.”You’ll find out in this episode why peptides are such a powerful treatment for many health conditions. Their use can improve both your healthspan and lifespan. Enjoy the show! ...

This episode is going to be about how to hack coronavirus. No, I don't know how to cure it, but we know some things that it does, and here's some thoughts about what you can possibly do about that. It's causing damage to people's hearts in a lot of people, not just lungs, and it seems to do this through increasing inflammation beyond what would be normal, what we call a cytokine storm.Here are my tips for hacking interleukin-6, which we now understand, based on a new study out of Wuhan, China, that this is one of the ways that the coronavirus is killing people by causing a cytokine storm. It's the storm of inflammation.Enjoy the show!RELATED CONTENT:What I Do To Protect Myself From Coronavirus, And How I Plan To Kick It If I Get ItTo learn more about the "moral panic" of coronavirus on Bulletproof Radio. Listen here and read here.Honor your elders and be kind to those with compromised immune systems by knowing how you can affect the surge capacity of coronavirus. Watch here.View: How to Stay Healthy During Air TravelRead: Nine Ways to Stay Strong and Avoid Sickness While TravelingDisclaimer: This information is not meant to diagnose, treat or cure any illness or disease.
In this episode, my guests Tina Anderson, co-founder and CEO of Just Thrive Health and research microbiologist Kiran Krishnan have returned with updated research and new developments in how to treat and care for the human microbiome.Tina is a former lawyer who found her life’s work in the field of natural health by creating a unique probiotic supplement company. Kiran is a research microbiologist with particular interest in gut commensal spore bacteria. “In the gut, diversity is paramount to health,” Kiran says. “Diversity in the gut will dictate how long you live. It has a huge impact on your longevity.”You may know about probiotics, and you may even take them, but do you know why they work and how they support your immune system? Probiotics help immensely. But not just any probiotic—you want to use spore-based. And Tina and Kiran can tell you why bacteria and probiotics are frenemies of the best kind. “One of the things that the spores do is they will flag our own cells that are infected with viruses so that our immune system can recognize them,” Kiran says.And then there are the IgG antibodies that protect the body from infection. “IgG being these intelligent drones that you can send in that go around and find the mold toxin, find the bacterial particles, find the C. diff toxin,” Kiran says. “They neutralize all of these things that are driving the inflammatory process in the gut and get rid of them.”Essentially, the gut steers the ship of your health. As researchers find out more about the human microbiome—how it operates and how it responds—we’re finding solutions to what ails our human body and brain systems.Enjoy the show! … And get more resources and a special offer at https://blog.daveasprey.com/just-thrive-677/.
In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, you’re going to learn a lot about electromagnetic fields, what they are doing to your health, and what you can do about it.“EMFs are invisible to your eyes and exist in a spectrum of frequencies that include radio and TV waves, microwaves, visible light, ultraviolet light, X-rays, and radioactive elements,” says my guest, Dr. Joseph Mercola, in his new book, “EMF*D: 5G, Wi-Fi & Cell Phones: Hidden Harms and How to Protect Yourself.” “Some sources of EMFs are natural, such as sunlight, while others are man-made—such as the energy used to cook foods by microwave ovens. These EMFs have demonstrable negative physiological effects, but very few people fully grasp this.”We discuss how important it is that people understand the dangers of EMFs. That can be hard in a world where technology use has become so common.“You have to get over this hump, this reluctance to accept that there could be some harm that you may have to change your behavior if you want to remain healthy and not suffer serious derangement to your precious mitochondria by excessive exposure to these frequencies,” Dr. Mercola says.“There are hundreds of millions of people who have symptoms and they don't even know it's due to EMFs. Chronic exposure at high levels that really can decimate biological health.”Listen on to find out ways you can protect yourself from the everyday dangers of EMFs.Enjoy the show! … And get more resources at Dave.Asprey/podcasts.
My guest today is a neuroscientist and neuro-nutritionist recognized and respected for her contributions to the fields of brain science, the microbiome, and nutritional genomics. Dr. Lisa Mosconi is the founder and director of the Women's Brain Initiative and associate director of the Alzheimer's Prevention Clinic at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York. She’s also an associate professor of neuroscience in neurology and radiology at Weill Cornell and an adjunct faculty member at New York University’s Department of Psychiatry.Her current scientific work focuses on the early detection of Alzheimer’s disease in at-risk people, particularly women. More than a decade of research has shown two things, Dr. Mosconi says: “No. 1, Alzheimer's Disease is not a disease of old age, but rather the disease starts with negative changes in the brain years—if not decades—before any clinical symptoms emerge. So, we're looking at midlife, rather than when you're 70 or 80. No. 2, women tend to develop these negative changes in their brains before men do, and specifically as women go through menopause. That was a big finding.”“Menopause symptoms don't start in the ovaries,” she says, “they start in the brain.” That’s why Dr. Mosconi uses brain imaging techniques such as positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). She is passionately interested in how risk of memory loss and Alzheimer’s disease can be mitigated, if not prevented, through the combination of appropriate medical care and lifestyle modifications involving diet, nutrition, physical and intellectual fitness. She details this in her new book, “The XX Brain: The Groundbreaking Science Empowering Women to Maximize Cognitive Health and Prevent Alzheimer's Disease.”Dr. Mosconi’s research into women’s neurological health is changing the way science approaches the female brain. Enjoy the show! … And get more resources at Dave.Asprey/podcasts. 
In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is Samuel Veissière, Ph.D., who examines social and evolutionary dimensions of cognition, mental health, and human well-being through a variety of projects. He’s an assistant professor of Psychiatry, co-director of the Culture, Mind, and Brain Program, and an associate member of the department of Anthropology at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.He caught my attention with his recent article in Psychology Today: The Coronavirus Is Much Worse Than You Think: How COVID-19 is infecting our minds, not our lungs.We’re going to take a look at the coronavirus, formally named COVID-19, from a decidedly different perspective. One that’s worth thinking about.“The human mind is really, really, really bad at estimating the statistical probabilities of anything,” Dr. Veissière says. “And human minds have evolved to specific cravings for different kinds of information, in particular, anything that conveys information about potential threats or danger.”His work as an anthropologist and cognitive scientist includes placebo effects and hypnosis, hyper-sociality in smartphone addiction, social polarization, gender and mental health, and the theoretical study of cultural evolution. He has worked with such varied populations as street children and sex workers in Northeast Brazil, indigenous peoples in the Arctic and the Amazon, children with neurodevelopmental disorders, people who intentionally conjure friendly auditory hallucinations, and Tibetan Buddhist monks in the Indian Himalayas. Dr. Veissière has published broadly on novel theories and experimental findings on the social nature of attention, cognition, mental health, and healing, and on the impact of the internet and new technologies on human sociality and well-being. As a special bonus in this episode, you’ll find out my best hacks to stay healthy while traveling. Enjoy the show! … And get more resources at Dave.Asprey/podcasts. 
In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’ve invited a guest who knows a lot about brains.As a physician, double-board certified psychiatrist, professor, and 10-time New York Times bestselling author, Dr. Daniel Amen studies brains from the inside out. His clinical focus on studying brain scans has led to new understanding of behavior, brain injuries, and how the brain ages.Now he’s taking on mental health and showing how neuroscience is transforming psychiatry and helping prevent and even reverse mental health issues. “Nobody believes it's really biological unless you look,” Dr. Amen says. “It's really a functional medicine approach to brain health.” He has authored or co-authored over 70 professional articles, seven book chapters and more than 30 books. You may be familiar with some of his titles, like Change Your Brain, Change Your Life; Healing ADD; Memory Rescue; and The Brain Warrior’s Way. Dr. Amen’s newest book, The End of Mental Illness: How Neuroscience Is Transforming Psychiatry and Helping Prevent or Reverse Mood and Anxiety Disorders, ADHD, Addictions, PTSD, Psychosis, Personality Disorders, and More changes the game completely for those experiencing mental illness.Our conversation reframes mental health as brain health. “I think of brain health really simply,” Dr. Amen says. “It's three things: 1-Care about it; 2-Avoid things that hurt.; and 3-Do things to help it.” Listen on for practical strategies.Enjoy the show! … And get more resources at Dave.Asprey/podcasts. 
In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’m excited to bring back a guest who regularly appears on Bulletproof Radio because of his functional medicine expertise and his contributions to the health of people around the world. He’s always innovating and pushing boundaries of what’s possible for human wellness.Dr. Mark Hyman is a practicing family physician and an internationally recognized leader, speaker, and educator. He’s also a 12-time New York Times best-selling author. But it’s his brand-new book, “Food Fix: How to Save Our Health, Our Economy, Our Communities, and Our Planet—One Bite at a Time” that he says is the most important one he’s ever written.“Wait a minute,” Dr. Hyman says. “If food is not only making people sick, it's also destroying our environment. It's causing climate change. It's causing social injustice. It's threatening our kids' academic performance in school, their future productivity and success, our global competitiveness, and our national security because kids are too fat or unfit to fight, leading to poverty, mental illness, violence."As you listen, you’ll find out why Dr. Hyman is:invested in the health and economic impact of our food system;working to save our food environment; and taking on the many inequalities and injustices of our modern food industry.  Enjoy the show! … And then head to DaveAsprey.com to get even more cool stuff.
In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is an entrepreneur, a nutritional expert, and a New York Timesbest-selling author of the book “Glow15.” Naomi Whittel is recognized as an innovator in the health and wellness industry, and an advocate for clean and safe nutrition. Naomi cracked the Top 10 all-time favorite Bulletproof Radio episodes and has stayed there since her 2018 interview: Glow From The Inside Out: Autophagy And Women – #477.Since then, she realized that much of the current ketogenetic information available does not consider the unique needs of female biology. So, she investigated the issue in depth. She went beyond the existing research to design and run her own clinical study.Prevention magazine listed her as the top female innovator for natural products in the United States. She’s also appeared on numerous national media outlets, such as The Wall Street Journal, Vogue, ELLE, Harper’s Bazaar, ABC News, PBS, InStyle, The View, The Doctors, The Dr. Oz Show, SHAPE, Good Morning America, and the TODAY show.Naomi joins me again to discuss her new book, “High Fiber Keto: A 22-Day Science-Based Plan to Fix Your Metabolism, Lose Weight & Balance Your Hormones.” She shares her findings on how keto can best benefit women with a few points:“Getting your body into a place where you're using fat for fuel and you're really in a consistent state of nutritional ketosis is the one thing that's going to make the biggest difference once you start to incorporate the fiber.”“Fiber is a very important piece in the nutritional ketogenic diet because it's easy to go off track and not support your microbiome the way that we need to. It's easy to have issues with too much acidity in the diet.”“If I can activate my autophagy by getting into the state of utilizing my ketones and using my own body fat as a source of fuel instead of using the sugar as a source of fuel, how much more free time will I have in the day to be a better thinker?”Listen on to find out more about the important fiber-keto connection. Naomi lays out the new science, gives tips on what to do and explains exactly why it matters to women.  Enjoy the show! … And get more resources at https://blog.daveasprey.com/category/podcasts/. 
In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, Dr. Jolene Brighten returns to the show with more wisdom and honest talk about hormones. As an international speaker, clinical educator and medical advisor within the tech community, she’s considered a leading authority on women’s health. She’s a prominent voice in the field of women’s medicine and the emerging science of Post-Birth Control Syndrome. As a Functional Naturopathic medical doctor and nutritional biochemist, she concentrates her efforts on the effects of hormonal birth control on female health. She works to uncover the root cause of hormonal imbalances.“We can acknowledge that all medical interventions have risks and that all forms of hormones that you are on internally making and also exogenous also have side effects,” says Dr. Brighten, “They can be out of balance, they can be used in the wrong way. Your genetics can come into play with all of this.”When she was on the show for episode #617, we talked about her new book “Beyond the Pill: A 30-Day Program to Balance Your Hormones, Reclaim Your Body, and Reverse the Dangerous Side Effects of the Birth Control Pill” and how to have way better sex without it—among other things. Before that, we looked at how women’s hormones affect their bodies and brains at different ages and stages of life in episode #415.This time—we’re heading right into hormonal superpowers and why women are stronger in every way when their hormones are working in sync with their natural rhythms. When hormones—and even the immediate environment—are not aligned, gut health, brain health and virtually every body system is affected. “When I talk about your hormones giving you superpowers,” says Dr. Brighten, “it's understanding how to leverage their strengths throughout your menstrual cycle.” She offers up knowledge and real solutions so you can manage your hormones at any age in ways that are as individual as you are.(And for our guys listening who want to understand how hormones affect the women in their life, this information is for you, too.) Enjoy the show!

Contrarian thinker here, I'm a big fan of fear. Rational fear has motivated me to make some of my best life decisions. Bad decisions more often than not come from naivety and a delusional sense of security. Coronavirus is going to motivate a lot of people to start taking their health more seriously.

Why is this person given a platform to talk... horrible mentality and life views. Sad for her.

really liked the perspective on trauma, we probably all have one the story of the heroin addict were you sad no your not selfdestructive you are in pain it helps. made me tear up. it's a beautiful way to look at people who behave or do stuff we normally judge. we do not know why they do it but it will have something that's makes there world better. this really inspired me

fascinating point of view, as you point out, it gives us as individuals the power to change nearly everything no matter what 'school medicine' is telling us

thank you again for the education you have the gift to brake down the complexety in digesteble information. I'm completely hooked on the diverse benefits on mushrooms and thankful for implementing them into my live

If you're wondering why Dave doesn't go hard against vaccines it's (mostly) because it would endanger his social media celebrity. Anyone prominent who goes after big pharma and their dangerous vaccines (that the government forces on children) gets deplatformed and censored by big tech. I'd love for Dave to prove me wrong and interview someone like Del Bigtree who can really lay out the anti-vax arguments and evidence.

Been listening to you since episode one... please invite this man back on. This podcast was as informative as a David Sinclair, Steven Gundrey, or William Davis... Great Podcast. Pertinent information.

I love the focus on environmental protection and the opportunity to participate in #citizenScience at the end of the episode.
