IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™...… you’ll find out how your imagined future directs your behavior right now, rather than your past. You’ll learn how to manage threats to your future self, recognize truths about your future self, and how to take steps to be your future self. You’ll also gain strategies you can start using today for creating and becoming exactly who you want to be in the present moment.Benjamin Hardy, Ph.D., is an organizational psychologist and author of multiple books on how to improve your mindset. He joins the show to explain how you can borrow from your future and actually be that person right now. In his newest book, “Be Your Future Self Now: The Science of Intentional Transformation,” he says, “Research now shows that a person’s past does not drive or dictate their actions and behaviors. Rather, we are pulled forward by our future.” There’s no looking back, only moving ahead. Most people, out of fear, limit their view of the future to a narrow range. Take a dangerous leap to think more broadly. Take cues from your brain.“With neuroscience, the brain is essentially considered a prediction machine,” Ben says. “So, what the brain is always doing is predicting what's going to happen, and learning is essentially just updating its sense of predictions. The brain is always anticipating the future.”Since you’re already thinking about the future, put those thoughts to use in the here and now with 21 actions  (7 threats to, 7 truths about, and 7 steps for being your future self) designed to transform yourself. For example:Offset a THREAT: Urgent battles and small goals keep you stuck. To exit the rat race of day-to-day mindset requires a shift in your focus. Face a TRUTH: Failing as your future self is better than succeeding as your current self. The more willing you are to invest in momentary loss and pain directed at a goal, the faster you’ll adapt to the level of your future self. Take a STEP: Schedule your future self. Put the important before the urgent. Once you commit to your Future Self, you’ll be required to be courageous. Choosing freedom over security is an act of courage.WE APPRECIATE OUR PARTNERS.

IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™...…a legacy upgrade conversation with Byron Katie will have you digging deep into the work of fine-tuning your mindset. Her keystone practice, The Work, allows you to access the wisdom you already hold inside you. She explains it as a process to “clear the mind.”You’ll ask yourself four questions and apply them to a specific problem you’re facing. Going through these steps gives you perspective and a new way of thinking about what’s causing you distress. Questioning diminishes the power your thoughts have over you. And THAT leads to true freedom.Her work contains elements of therapist, a counselor or a religious leader, though she’s technically not any one of these. She’s been described as a spiritual mentor. As the bestselling author of “Loving What Is: Four Questions That Can Change Your Life," followed by "A Mind at Home with Itself: How Asking Four Questions Can Free Your Mind, Open Your Heart, and Turn Your World Around," her inspirational guidance offers people a different way to think their thoughts so they can change their mindsets and, ultimately, their lives.Her own story of early life success that spiraled into depression, rage, addiction, and self-loathing, sets the foundation for The Work. “The thoughts like, “I’m not good enough. There's something wrong with me," which was true,” Byron explains. “It was my thinking. My thoughts were aimed out at other people. It was their fault. Then when I would say or do something, I would experience the guilt, so I had this vicious circle going of judgment, guilt, judgment, guilt. It was debilitating.”She had to save herself.  Several weeks into treatment, she woke up one morning to a state of constant joy that has never left her and four questions clearly in her mind that would lead her out of her own darkness. She’s never been able to truly explain this epiphany, nor has she evangelized it. She realized that when she believed her stressful thoughts, she suffered, but that when she questioned them, she didn't suffer, and that this is true for every human being. She simply shares The Work with people who want to make profound life changes—and has continued this path for nearly 40 years.“I have a lot of people across the globe that are saying their lives are shifting so dramatically they're unrecognizable, but I don't call it The Work for nothing,” she says. “It does take stillness. It takes silence, and it takes being courageous enough to look at the thoughts in your head without trying to change them and accept them the way they are.”WE APPRECIATE OUR PARTNERS. CHECK THEM OUT!Kickstart Autophagy: https://timelinenutrition.com/DAVE, use the code ASPREY10 to get 10% off any planMattress Temperature Tech: https://www.eightsleep.com/dave, use code dave to save $250 on the Pod ProSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™...... you’re going to find out how to cook differently using an innovative kitchen appliance, Brava, that’s got some cool features that will get you excited about making your meals at home—always a good idea!First—what Brava is not. The Brava countertop cooking oven isn’t a microwave, isn’t a toaster oven, and isn’t a convection oven.Instead, it’s a device that cooks with light. Six lamps deliver exact, variable, infrared light waves to your food. Brava synchronizes and controls the amount of power each lamp emits. Simultaneously, the lamps instantly reach full power and turn off just as quickly, creating three independent cooking zones inside the chamber. The top five benefits of this cooking method include: Searing (great for your grass-fed steaks), precision, versatility, speed and quality. Brava also cooks up to three different ingredients at the same time. You can air fry, dehydrate and cook your favorite white rice in it (Bulletproof Diet approved). It’s user- and kid-friendly, so your whole family can be part of a lifestyle that prioritizes food that nourishes your body and ups your energy.Brava’s vice president and professional chef, Travis Rea, led the Brava Culinary Team in developing Brava's patented Pure Light Technology (physicists and mathematicians were in on it, too). He’s on the show to explain the technology behind Brava and how cooking with light will change your entire approach to food.Travis earned a degree in Culinary Arts at the California Culinary Academy. Prior to Brava, he headed the Food Development team at Williams-Sonoma for eight years where he developed nearly 800 private label food products. His experience also includes leadership roles at Revolution Foods and NatureBox. So, he knows the many facets of creating great food.Brava takes out the guesswork of meal planning by offering over 7,000 fully automated recipe programs. This means you can enjoy cooking more because it takes less of your time.SPECIAL OFFER FOR LISTENERS OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE: https://www.brava.com, use code DAVE at checkout to get $200 OFF any Brava set through December 31, 2022. See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™...… you’ll learn how whole body vibration works and the many ways it benefits your physiology. It’s the nexus between energy and life, says Tony Molina, a performance optimization expert.“This biohack helps you burn more calories,” he says. “It helps you increase strength and reaction time. You can improve skin and circulation, bone density, pain relief, hormonal changes, posture and balance. It's also a lifelong health and longevity partner.” He’s talking about the Power Plate. He’s a high-altitude and longevity researcher and Senior Research and Development Specialist at the company.“Whole body vibration runs off Isaac Newton's second law, so force equals mass times acceleration,” he explains. “Where acceleration is what’s being increased versus mass. And generally, we focus on the mass, whether we do any kind of strength training, we focus on holding mass or dealing with the mass or changing the mass. With whole body vibration and Power Plate, you’re focusing on the acceleration or the speed change.”Other cool things about whole body vibration:You're changing the formula from conscious effort (like conventional exercise) to subconscious (harmonic vibration).You’re experiencing multiplanar movement that creates an unstable environment that’s proprioceptively challenging. (The nervous system doesn't know what to do, which is a good thing.)Your neuromuscular spindle gets stimulated without the need for the brain even to get involved. (Cognitive confidence!) Your nervous system itself is ramping up safety signals so the brain understands what it needs to do without you consciously having to do anything.Your reflexes improve; your reaction time gets better; your ability to propriocept allows your posture to improve; and you breathe better.Listen on to find out more about whole-body vibration training, therapy, and how it can make you live longer, whatever your fitness level or ability.SPECIAL OFFER FOR THE HUMAN UPGRADE LISTENERS: https://powerplate.com/dave to get 20% off a Power Plate® MOVE (save $659) AND a FREE Power Plate Pulse Massage Gun (valued at $249.99) WE APPRECIATE OUR PARTNERS.

IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™...…you’ll learn about the critical role metabolism plays in your body’s energy and performance. Important new science findings about human metabolic health shows how you can change your metabolism. To help you make these changes, this episode gives you practical tips and tools for measuring your metabolism and ways to manage it effectively.Guest Michal Mor, Ph.D., co-founded Lumen with her twin sister, Merav Mor, Ph.D., and three long-time entrepreneur friends nearly a decade ago. As Chief of Metabolic Health & Science, Michal’s background includes degree studies in Medical Laboratory Sciences and Physiology with an emphasis on cardiac arrhythmia. The Lumen founders set out to close the gap of what existed in the science and something people could actually use to manage their metabolic health.Both Michal and her twin, Merav, were multiple-year Ironman participants. Athletic performance—and how to improve it—influenced their work with metabolism. Four years of research and development plus more years of validation studies and beta test users went into developing Lumen.  Lumen is a hand-held device that accurately measures your metabolism through the breath. It uses a CO2 sensor and flow meter to measure the CO2 concentration in your breath, indicating if your body is in carb or fat burn.“So, this ability to shift between them, it's not only good for athletic performance it's also improving our quality of life,” Michal says. “It enables us to enjoy life to our fullest potential. It's about longevity. It's about being able to achieve our goals, not having those mood swings. This is so much more than improving athletic performance.”Lumen has accumulated a metabolic measurement database with over 20m measurements. These insights have shown how lifestyle habits affect metabolism and the body more than previously thought possible. Listen on to learn how with just one breath in the morning, you can set your metabolism course for the day and then monitor it throughout the day.SPECIAL OFFER FOR THE HUMAN UPGRADE LISTENERS: https://lumen.me, use code Asprey50 to get $50 off a Lumen deviceWE APPRECIATE OUR PARTNERS.

IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™...…two psychiatric research pioneers open up about the benefits people experience from psychedelic treatments. From mental health conditions to crucial social connections, there’s a dose and approach that can work for you and with your own brain chemistry.Psychiatrist and psychotherapist Dr. Phil Wolfson, creator of Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy, leads patients through psychedelic psychotherapy sessions, guiding them through their past and present in an open, altered state of mind. His invaluable work is the result of an intense, many-decades-long clinical practice. He focuses on new pathways for healing depression, PTSD, addiction and other conditions.“There’s really no right or wrong with psychedelics,” Dr. Wolfson says. “It’s about how do we integrate our lives and relationship in this very difficult time with people and in our beings, and what practices we bring to this whole thing. So, it’s not just about substances.” Psychiatrist and psychopharmacologist Dr. Julie Holland explains in her book, “Good Chemistry: The Science of Connection, From Soul to Psychedelics,” why you need connection, how you’ve lost it, and how you might find it again. She believes psychedelics can help. Taken under the direction of a trained psychiatrist, they can catalyze a connection with the self, nature, or the cosmos.Dr. Holland’s research—with a focus on the parasympathetic nervous system—dives into how you can “turn on” and “tune in” to the brain chemistry that supports connection. At the same time, you can tamp down the fight or flight mode that derails sleep, metabolism, libido and much more. She’s leading new understanding about how your behaviors are driven by the hormones and neurotransmitters that make up good (and bad) brain chemistry, including testosterone, estrogen, dopamine, serotonin and most crucially, oxytocin. If you liked this special episode with Phil and Julie, you’ll learn even more from listening to their full podcasts on these topics:Your Guide to Psychedelic Psychotherapy – Dr. Phil Wolfson with Dave Asprey – #770Psychedelics Offer New Solutions for Social Isolation – Dr. Julie Holland with Dave Asprey – #757WE APPRECIATE OUR PARTNERS. CHECK THEM OUT!Structure Water Molecules; Achieve Body/Brain Coherence: https://analemma-water.com, use code DAVE10 for 10% offComplete Brain Nutrition with Nootropics: https://neurohacker.com/dave, use code DAVE to score an extra 15% off Qualia MindHydrate with Electrolytes: https://DrinkLMNT.com/DAVE, get a FREE LMNT Sample Pack with 8 single-serving packets for the cost of shipping ($5 for U.S. customers) See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™... …two of the most adventurous people on the planet share what they’ve uncovered, faced and learned through exploration of the planet’s deepest waters. From discovering the Titanic to cave diving in places untouched by any other human, Bob Ballard and Jill Heinerth took risks, dove into fear, and came up for air with tremendous new knowledge. Combined, they’ve spent over nine decades searching the seas and documenting their findings. Canadian Jill Heinerth explores the underwater world as one of the greatest cave divers on the planet. She’s considered this generation’s Jacques Cousteau. She’s completed more than 7,500 dives in her career so far and dived deeper into caves than any woman in history. She became the first person to dive the ice caves of Antarctica, going further into an underwater cave system than any woman ever. She’s gone into places in the world where no one had gone before.Considered a legend in the diving community, she’s spent more than 30 years in submerged caves around the world partnering with National Geographic, NOAA, and various educational institutions and television networks worldwide. She’s also a writer and award-winning photographer and filmmaker who takes a keen interest in the health of the Earth’s oceans.Learn more about Jill’s lifetime of underwater cave diving in her memoir, “Into the Planet: My Life as a Cave Diver.” “We are capable of so much more than we could possibly imagine," she says.Bob Ballard explores the vast depths of the oceans uncovering mysteries, proving theories, and revealing artifacts that tell a story about the history of humankind. An oceanographer and marine geologist, he’s led nearly 160 deep-sea expeditions and worked with the Navy on top-secret missions. His underwater career spanning more than 60 years began simply enough as a child with a love of California’s Mission Bay tide pools.He’s gone on to discover ships thought long lost (the RMS Titanic in 1985) and provide extraordinary new understandings and discoveries in marine geology, geophysics, biology, and chemistry. He’s discovered new life-forms, traced ancient trade routes, developed robots that roam the ocean floor, and opened the underwater world to kids through telepresence. Bob's recent memoir chronicles his underwater journeys “Into The Deep: A Memoir from the Man Who Found Titanic.” “Just lots of crazy things have happened, and I'm still at it and I'm not going to quit,” he says.If you liked this special episode with Jill and Bob, you’ll learn even more from listening to their full podcasts, directly below.Living a Life of Deep Adventure – Bob Ballard, Finder of the Titanic – #839A Lesson in Adventure Hacking: Step Toward Your Fear – Jill Heinerth – #663WE APPRECIATE OUR PARTNERS. CHECK THEM OUT!Repair Oxidative Stress Damage: https://eng3corp.com/DAVE/Kickstart Autophagy: https://timelinenutrition.com/DAVE, use code ASPREY10 to get 10% off any planControl Blood Glucose: https://pendulumlife.com, sign up for membership to get monthly supply delivery, use code DAVE20 to save $20 on your first shipmentSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™...…a legacy upgrade conversation with Paul Chek delivers the goods on how to improve your physical, emotional and mental performance. He lays out what it takes to get into your optimal state—including a higher state of consciousness. For more than 30 years, he’s used a unique, integrated approach to treatment and education. Paul gets back to basics and formulates practical systems that work to help you help yourself to get well.“I look at happiness, movement, quiet, and diet,” Paul says. “I get a holistic picture of their life because you can’t reduce a living philosophy below those four factors.”Paul's an expert in the fields of corrective and high-performance exercise kinesiology, stress management and holistic wellness. By treating the body as a whole system and finding the root cause of a problem, he’s been successful where traditional approaches have consistently failed. And he goes even further into the metaphysical realm.“The world populace due to the destruction of the environment, due to the chemicals in the environment, due to the electromagnetic pollution, due to overstimulation, due to the lack of sleep, due to the manipulation of people’s biochemistry by medical drug use, … we’re going lower and lower into our levels of consciousness, which is putting us more and more in a fight or flight state, which is making us more and more reactive.”But you can make a difference within your own life, even going into higher levels of consciousness, Paul explains.“Every human being has genius within it,” Paul says. “We can use the same technology and the same level of brain power that got us in trouble to reverse it.”This legacy episode is the full version of a 2-part episode series. Now, you can listen to the entire conversation without interruption. Paul tells it like it is—no holds barred and no BS. You’re going to learn a lot and enjoy his style!About Paul Chek:  Paul founded the CHEK Institute (Corrective Holistic Exercise Kinesiology) in 1995. He’s a certified neuromuscular therapist and clinical exercise specialist (ACE) who’s studied with experts worldwide from many disciplines. The Chek Institute offers a broad range of educational courses that include at-home study.

IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™......you'll learn some surprising lessons sorrow and longing can teach you about creativity, connection and love. You’ll find out why longing isn’t passive—as most people think—but actually “momentum in disguise.”Author Susan Cain combines research, the stories of others, and memoir to explain how sadness can be your superpower. “Bittersweetness is the hidden source of our moon shots, masterpieces, and love stories,” she says in her newest book, “Bittersweet: "How Sorrow And Longing Make Us Whole”.Longing can improve your creativity and fuel a drive to express yourself. Longing coupled with pain can help you to connect to others and provide a common ground that enhances compassion and helps you feel less alone in your troubles. Instead of hiding or shying away from feelings like sadness and longing, Susan encourages you to embrace them as part of who you are, and part of what it means to be human. This conversation gets into:How bittersweet differs from melancholyHow Acceptance Commitment Therapy helps you manage the “bitter of life” How sadness is the ultimate bonding agentHow the concept of “winners” and “losers” changed over timeHow to live and work authentically in an environment of enforced positivityHow to embrace deep reflection and ask yourself: "What. Are. You. Longing. For?"Special offer for The Human Upgrade listeners: Go deeper into the topics of Bittersweet and Quiet with Susan’s 30-day interactive online courses. Go to https://www.susancain.net/ and use code ASPREY15 to save 15%.  More about Susan Cain: She’s the author of “QUIET: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking,” which spent seven years on The New York Times bestseller list and has been translated into 40 languages.

IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™...…two food experts explain the many ways your food choices influence your body systems—and what you can do differently to improve your gut function, energy and performance. Here’s a look at how essential amino acids and the right proteins can keep inflammation at bay and keep your metabolism humming.Teri Cochrane, CN, CCP, went down the research rabbit hole when both her son and daughter (at different ages and for different reasons) experienced severe health problems. She not only examined nutrition in-depth, but she also investigated epigenetics and nutrigenomics “Disruptors such as pathogens, mycotoxins, stress, amyloids and inflammatory foods work together to impair body balance,” Teri says. “We have found a direct link between amyloids, mycotoxins and these health disruptors in the acceleration of disease.”She’s developed her own methodology that integrates a multi-level nutritional approach—including biochemistry, nutrition, genetic tendencies, herbology, supplementation and counseling. As the author of the “The Wildatarian Diet: Living as Nature Intended,” Teri lays out how the malabsorption of protein, fat, and sulfur, tamper with gene expression. Mareya Ibrahim believes in food flexibility while still focusing on a core system that works. She’s a holistic nutritionist, TV chef, podcast host, and award-winning entrepreneur and inventor with more than 25 years of experience in the food industry. She also founded Grow Green Industries and co-invented the patented eatCleaner line of products.In her book, “Eat Like You Give a Fork: The Real Dish on Eating to Thrive,” she explains the nuances of clean eating, how to reset your taste buds, and all the ways essential amino acids keep your body functioning.“Essential amino acids are what fuel us and allow us to regulate our hormones, and flex our metabolisms, and build muscle, and all of the things that we need to be functioning human beings,” Mareya says.

Specialist after specialist told Autumn Smith nothing could be done to alleviate her physical and mental health distress.As a last-ditch effort, she turned to the power of whole foods. She cleaned up her diet with Paleo-inspired eating and improved her gut in just 30 days. The changes also decreased her anxiety, increased her mental sharpness, and discovered her inner vibrancy. That experience propelled Autumn to help others capture the power of whole foods through quality food products produced by regenerative agricultural practices.In 2013, she and her husband, Chas, along with another family member and friend, launched Paleovalley. They built a company dedicated to helping people get essential nutrients without added sugars, grains, and other harmful ingredients. With meat being the central focus of their business, they set out to learn all they could about production and regenerative farming.In 2018, they launched Wild Pastures, a regenerative meat delivery service, and recently opened Wild Pastures Burger Company, their flagship fast casual burger restaurant in Boulder, Colorado.This conservation gets into the problems with current methods of animal agriculture and possible solutions. You’ll find out more about the nutritional differences of animal products depending on how they’re raised. Autumn says meat labels can be tricky, too, so she breaks down the jargon and tells you what to look for and what to avoid.Autumn advocates for meat’s many advantages and works to dispel the myths that continue to persist about meat consumption. From soil to farming to raising animals humanely, building community and managing economies, Autumn talks about how to make choices that are right for you and everything around you.More about Autumn Smith: Autumn holds a master’s in Holistic Nutrition and currently is a doctoral candidate in Holistic Nutrition. She’s a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner, an Eating Psychology Coach certified by the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, and received Soil Advocacy Training by Kiss The Ground.

Hi Dave, You mentioned in this podcast that you do NOT recommend psyllium as prebiotic fiber - at the same time on other podcasts you're promoting uprisingfood.com which has psyllium as one of their main ingredients. I'm a bit confused. Could you please help me to clarify this? Should I avoid uprisingfood.com products as they have psyllium in it? Thx.

I'm just wondering: if the infrared sauna heats the person up from the inside: 1. Then Why does a "cabin" needed to be built around it, why cannot it be just a wall panel, like the JOOVV 3.0 Red Light Therapy devices? 2. And if the "cabin" is indeed needless for the infrared Sauna, then why JOOVV or SUNLIGHTEN - or any other similar company don't build a device /wall panel which offers 2 in 1: both Red Light Therapy AND infrared sauna in one single device / single session? Would this be too difficult/expensive to build? Or would there be health risks to have infrared sauna and red light therapy session together, at the same time?

re: low T as a function of training intensity and recovery Highly recommend mark sisson's book primal endurance. Brad Kearns case presented in that book is right in line with this guy's experience.

what you said about the therapy is so wrong and proves you are an not really a sufferer like you say. I followed you for years...years... not now. you have no idea what me and others have been through. You were fat and picked on, but what about a full trauma childhood, leaving you really mentally crippled. I liked you but now not so sure. you think anyone that had a awful upbringing or horrible experience can do it themselves. slight insult.

what you just said about the therapy is so wrong and proves you are an idiot. I followed you for yers...years... I am out. you have no idea what me and others have been through. wow. you are not in touch. thank you for showing me what type of person you are. I liked you but now no. you think anyone that had a awful upbringing or horrible experience can eR a carrot or spend your kind of money sitting in a tube of water and they get better. shame on you. someone last week said terrible things about you but I defended you but now what you Saud in the episode is an total insult.

really enjoyed this one. it continues to amaze me how otherwise intelligent well-informed people like the guest can remain so ignorant about this virus and the vaccine. I.e I e. overestimating the risk and uninformed about how useless and dangerous the vax has proven to be. not to mention completely uninformed about a middle or alternate path to addressing the public health issue. heaven forbid public health officials should encourage testing for vitamin d, inflammation and blood sugar regulation. or that they would advocate supplementation and holistic approaches to preparing oneself to win against the virus. heaven forbid they should advocate prophylactic treatment for those at high risk of exposure or infection. no way should this intelligent individual advocate for prophylactic use of proven effective early treatments

Great content but these two things will have me thinking twice about listening to another podcast:. Very disruptive noise of someone opening package, rummaging through contents, taping back up, crying paper, etcetera! Multi-tasking during a podcast is just rude!
