H.V.M.N. sponsored this episode.IN THIS “UPGRADE SPOTLIGHT” EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™…Metabolic biochemist Latt Mansor, Ph.D., joins the show from H.V.M.N. (Health Via Modern Nutrition), where he leads research for the company. He’s an expert in metabolism who consults with elite sport, military, clinical and research organizations. As a key biomarker of metabolic health, ketones are a source of fuel for your brain and body. They’re different from glucose and fat—and more efficient. Learning about the different kinds of ketones and how they work can help you both understand and harness their power. This discussion explains exogenous ketones, BDO-specific ketones BHB and ketone esters. You’ll also find out how to measure your ketones and why it’s important.Ketones have been shown to be anti-inflammatory. Another benefit happens during exercise. The increase in your ketone levels directly increases BDNF (brain-derived nootropic factor). When you raise ketones, you have a more flexible brain.Latt gets into the research behind H.V.M.N.’s development of drinkable ketones to improve performance.

… Dr. Kelly Brogan shares why her views often go against conventional thinking—on topics from pharmaceuticals to sex to pole dancing to relationship compatibility. She's a psychiatrist who specializes in psychosomatic medicine and integrative holistic medicine. Her root-cause resolution approach to psychiatric syndromes and symptoms coupled with other support techniques helps women reclaim their divine feminine power.I previously talked with Dr. Kelly on episode #635 about her book, "Own Your Self: The Surprising Path Beyond Depression, Anxiety, and Fatigue to Reclaiming Your Authenticity, Vitality, and Freedom.” This romp of a discussion tackles women’s power and what it means to claim or reclaim it. And how women themselves can be harmful critics of other women’s choices. Dr. Kelly went through profound personal changes over the past few years that led to changes in her business, too. Changes that rattled some people and brought out the worst kind of social media attention. She talks about how she’s stayed firmly in her choices and offers tips for you to do the same. She also gets into why the differences in feminine and masculine power matter now more than ever. It starts with your relationship with yourself.This fun, informative interview gets a little wild and shares profound insights you can apply to your next life move.Watch this episode on YouTube!WE APPRECIATE OUR PARTNERS.

IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™…you’re going to learn how to work with your own biology, adapt to adversity, and get resilient AF. Doctor, educator and entrepreneur Dr. Molly Maloof joins the show in person in Austin, Texas, to talk about her debut book, “The Spark Factor: The Secret to Supercharging Energy, Becoming Resilient, and Feeling Better Than Ever.” For women biohackers, it’s all about energy—and hormones. “Cycles are exactly why the way guys biohack doesn’t always work for us [women]; we have hormonal and physiological differences, and importantly, different biological imperatives, from an evolutionary standpoint,” she says in her new book.She last appeared on episode #706 and talked about how blood sugar powers your energy. This time, she explains why mitochondrial dysfunction is at the root of the collective human energy crisis and what you can do about it. Dr. Molly says four culprits reduce your energy capacity: inactivity, overeating and poor nutrition, too much stress and social disconnection."Spark Factor" outlines clear and actionable steps for women on how to make, charge, use, tune, and plug in your own batteries. New to biohacking? Start where you are. More advanced biohacker? You’ll learn tips and tweaks to get you to another level. Molly offers low-tech and tech-free guidance, too. It’s up to you where to start and how far you want to take it.Her unique view of human performance incorporates technology and psychedelics. In this broad conversation, she covers sex and relationships, too.Watch this episode on YouTube!WE APPRECIATE OUR PARTNERS.

IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™… board-certified OB/GYN and “menopause warrior” Mary Claire Haver, M.D., joins the show to give women a toolkit to manage what comes before, during and after menopause.She explains the science of women’s hormones, physiology and brain during the menopausal transition.She breaks down the studies, risks, and age timing of Hormone Replacement Therapy.She gives you information you can use to both help yourself and ask for help from medical professionals.She arms you with actions that work based on what is happening to your biology and brain chemistry during the years leading up to and after menopause.“When I talk about the menopausal toolkit, HRT is just one small part of what I counsel patients about,” Dr. Haver says. “We talk about nutrition, we talk about exercise, we talk about stress reduction, we talk about sleep, we talk about possible other pharmaceuticals. And of course, we talk about supplementation. It's like a tackle box and everything is important.”Although Dr. Haver’s career included taking care of women at all life stages, she didn’t expect to experience the shocks of her own menopause. So, she went looking for answers and took action along the way. She changed the entire focus of her medical practice to menopause. She also channeled the power of social media to provide menopause education and reaches more than 2 million on her TikTok channel alone.Her new book, “The Galveston Diet: The Doctor-Developed, Patient-Proven Plan to Burn Fat and Tame Your Hormonal Symptoms," lays out three specific action areas: intermittent fasting, anti-inflammatory nutrition, and fuel refocus.Menopause is having a moment. (As Lizzo would say, “It’s About Damn Time.”) From investor-backed start-ups in a $6B market to celebrity-led wellness brands to demands for more science—women, and women medical professionals, are changing mid-life menopause dynamics.Watch this episode on YouTube!WE APPRECIATE OUR PARTNERS.

IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™…Susanna Soeberg, Ph.D., a Danish researcher, international scientist and expert in cold and heat therapy for health and performance, explains how you can harness the massive benefits of cold water immersion (winter swimming), sauna, breathing, and your metabolism.When it comes to biohacking, a few things rise to the top and make a pretty big difference in your body and brain. Through her research, Susanna discovered the minimum threshold of cold and heat exposure for health benefits. We get right into that on the show. She also works with functional breathing during cold environmental conditions and cold water immersion, especially winter swimming. Have you been considering this biohack for awhile? Baby steps won’t get you there—prepare to go all-in with the cold. “You could take cold showers, for sure,” Susanna says, “but it's not going to activate your parasympathetic nervous system in the same way as submerging yourself into cold water.”Earning a Ph.D. in metabolism at the University of Copenhagen set her on course to focus her expertise on ways metabolism works for and against you—and what you can do to improve your metabolic profile. She researches obesity, Type 2 diabetes and insulin management, as well as how brown and white adipose tissue (fat) function differently within the human body.In Susanna’s new book, “Winter Swimming: The Nordic Way Towards a Healthier and Happier Life,” she describes the benefits of winter swimming and cold water immersion on your physiology, mental health, and capacity for resilience.Watch this episode on YouTube!SPECIAL OFFER FOR THE HUMAN UPGRADE LISTENERS: Go to https://www.soeberginstitute.com and use code DAVE for a special discount on Susanna Soeberg’s 3-week course, The Thermalist CureTM.Opportunity: Breath, Cold, Stress & Resilience Conference, Feb. 18, 2023.

Leela Quantum Tech sponsored this episode.IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™…you’ll learn why energy frequencies have such a powerful influence on human physiology. Skeptics take note: science backs this up.Philipp Samor Von Holtzendorff-Fehling introduced quantum energy on episode #809 and its benefits on body function, cellular voltage and chakra energy. He returns to the show with exciting new research that further validates the power of this energy and its frequencies on human physiology.“Energy and frequency—that’s where the real truth is.” Philipp says. “And that's where the real life also is.”Leela Quantum Tech creates blocs (Infinity, Quantum, Travel), frequency cards, H.E.A.L. capsules, and other products charged with quantum energy. The products have been through single- and double-blind, randomized studies and tests. This research has measured mental and physical energy, organ function, neutralization of radioactive particles, protection against pesticides and herbicides, and much more. Studies also explored how quantum energy affects ATP production, HRV (heart rate variability) and food allergies. You can feel and measure the effects. And dark field microscopy studies (placebo-controlled and double-blind) performed by Dr. Beverly Rubik in the U.S. and the BESA institute in Austria looked at the physical effectiveness of Leela Bloc technology.SPECIAL OFFER FOR THE HUMAN UPGRADE LISTENERS: Go to https://leelaq.com and use code DAVE10 to get 10% off.Watch this episode on YouTube!WE APPRECIATE OUR PARTNERS.

IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™…Harvard psychiatrist, researcher and assistant professor Christopher Palmer, M.D., introduces a bold new premise about the root cause of mental illness based on decades of research.Dr. Palmer integrated existing theories and research into one unifying theory—the brain energy theory of mental illness that’s rooted in your metabolism. Through his research, he initially pioneered using a medical ketogenic diet to treat psychiatric disorders. In this conversation, you’ll learn how he went even further to uncover the connection between mental health and metabolic disorders of the brain. That connection lies in mitochondrial dysfunction or dysregulation.His new book, “Brain Energy: A Revolutionary Breakthrough in Understanding Mental Health and Improving Treatment for Anxiety, Depression, OCD, PTSD, and More,” also explains the increased risk for mental disorders in all metabolic conditions, including diabetes, heart attacks, strokes, pain disorders, obesity, Alzheimer’s disease, and epilepsy. “Once you see the big picture of metabolism and all of the things that influence metabolism, you actually can see novel ways to intervene,” Dr. Palmer says. “And you can also raise some red flags about some of our current treatments.” Watch this episode on YouTube!WE APPRECIATE OUR PARTNERS.

IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™…you’ll meet Gloria Mark, Ph.D., who studies how digital media impacts people's lives. Her research specifically covers how attention is affected by, and has changed, with the rise of the digital age. She’s found that attention span now averages 47 seconds on a screen—and even that’s shrinking.As a Chancellor’s Professor of Informatics at the University of California-Irvine researching human-computer interaction, Gloria examines how people handle multitasking, task-switching, interruptions, and emotions. Her new book “Attention Span: A Groundbreaking Way to Restore Balance, Happiness and Productivity” looks at human technology use from a psychological perspective.“In the thousands of hours that I have studied people in the course of their daily work, I have heard a common sentiment,” Gloria says in her book. “People report that they are overworked and exhausted because they have to deal with too much information and too many messages.”This conversation gets into the science of attention, the stress it’s causing, plus real solutions for how you can regain focus with your personal technologies. You’ll learn:How to recognize the four main types of attention;What consequences of constant interruption do to your stress levels and productivity;How to achieve focus, rhythm and balance in a day filled with attention-switching; How to structure a flow state within your day; and What four things you can do to gain agency in the digital world.  Watch this episode on YouTube!Shield Yourself from EMFs: https://quantumupgrade.io, use code DAVE to get a two-week free trialKnowing Labs: Test Your Own Biology: https://knowinglabs.com/dave, use code dave to save 20% off any test kit9th Annual Biohacking Conference: Come join like-minded people June 22-24 in Orlando, Florida, for three days of awesome!

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.

IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™… Humble The Poet joins the show to talk about a unique perspective on love. You’ll learn:what “real” love means (hint: it’s not found or earned) and how to recognize it in your life. how to shift away from a mindset of earning more, achieving more, and gaining more attention so you can clear pathways for love to enter and flourish in your lifehow to ditch restrictive “resolutions” (that fail more often than they succeed) and instead set intentions that allow you more freedom to love yourself and others.This Canadian-born rapper, spoken-word artist, poet and international bestselling author began reciting spoken word poetry in coffee shops more than a decade ago. That creative outlet turned into an adventure that crossed genres, mediums and oceans. His style stimulates audiences with ideas that challenge conventional wisdom. His first two books, “Unlearn” & “Things Nobody Can Teach Us” became international bestsellers. His newest book focuses on self love, love for others, defining love in a different way, and how to ease up on expectations that may be holding you back: “How to Be Love(d): Simple Truths for Going Easier on Yourself, Embracing Imperfection & Loving Your Way to a Better Life.” “I’m writing this because I’m desperate,” he says in the book. “Desperate to realize love, accept love, and learn how I keep f**king it up.”Watch this episode on YouTube!WE APPRECIATE OUR PARTNERS.

IN THIS “BEST OF” EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™…… Ari Whitten, Ph.D. (Cand.), CES, PES, explains how to double your energy through improved resilience, cell defense, nutrition and supplementation.  In his newest book, “EAT FOR ENERGY: How to Beat Fatigue, Supercharge Your Mitochondria, and Unlock All-Day Energy,” Ari explains that 5.4 million adults in the U.S. have been diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome (the most severe case of fatigue). However, the true fatigue epidemic affects 50 to 100 times more people with many experiencing some level of being flat-out tired as hell.This conversation gets right into the role of mitochondria in human energy. The cause of fatigue is mitochondrial dysfunction, Ari says. The biggest factors that affect your mitochondria include:Circadian rhythm dysregulation and poor sleep Carrying too much body fat and too little muscle mass Poor gut and microbiome health Blood sugar dysregulation Nutritional toxicities and deficiencies Neurotransmitter and hormone imbalances Ari recommends science-backed ways that you can get your mitochondria moving, dial in your nutrition and upgrade your brain, gut and hormones. WE APPRECIATE OUR PARTNERS.

Turns out, there may be more density in your gut microbiome, but there’s more diversity in your oral microbiome.Naveen’s company, Viome, built an AI-driven platform that analyzes the interaction between food, your body’s biomes, and your cells from at-home tests. Your results are used to develop precise ways of eating and taking supplements that prevent and can even help reverse chronic disease.

IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™ … you’ll find out that kids are killing themselves more often and at younger ages. Suicide prevention expert Dr. Mark Goulston joins the show to discuss the very real and very urgent topics of youth mental health and suicide—from pre-teens to teens to young adults. These issues concern everyone, not only families, educators or professionals who connect with young people. Here’s why:Suicide shows up in the top three causes of death in young people between the ages of 10-24, according to 2020 stats from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) WISQARS Leading Causes of Death Reports.Young people are hurting. The National Alliance on Mental Illness reports that nearly 20% of high school students say they’ve had serious thoughts of suicide and 9% have made an attempt to take their lives. Dr. Mark explains that many young people struggling mentally and emotionally feel like they're a burden to everyone. And they don’t have confidence that parents can help them feel better. You’ll learn a lot during this conversation, such as:factors driving teen mental health issues and teen suicide.what’s going on in the teen brain from a developmental perspective that leads them to think that death is a preferable alternative to working through life situations.signs or red flags that a teen is struggling. how parents and adults often can diminish or dismiss teens’ emotions, situations with friends or love relationships.what emotional intelligence skills are most useful for parents/adults to better understand teens.how to talk to teens—whether you’re a parent or a caring adult in a teen’s life.how to improve listening in a culture dominated by tech.how to listen to teens and help them realize and understand their emotions—without cutting them off, interrupting them, or jumping to advice and solutions.when to seek professional intervention.More about Dr. Mark Goulston: He's a retired psychiatrist, former UCLA professor of psychiatry and former FBI and police hostage negotiation trainer. He recently received the “Shine the Light Media Award” from the Los Angeles County Medical Association for bringing attention to teen mental health and suicide. He’s the author or co-author of nine books: “Just Listen: Discover the Secret to Getting Through to Absolutely Anyone,” ranks in the 15 Best Communication Skills Books of All Time.Watch this episode on YouTube!Biostack for High Performance: https://vatellia.com, use code DAVE2022 to save 10% or subscribe and save 15% + receive a free bottle of Kale BusterGet Fit in Five Minutes: https://www.carolbike.com, use code HumanUpgrade to get 2 years of free membership (a total savings of $360) on the CAROL Bike 2.0 and a 100-day home trial.Business Growth With SEO: https://www.stephanspencer.com, get a FREE consultation See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

If you are looking to burn calories then less time equals less calories. So if that's your goal then this wouldn't be beneficial, correct?

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!
