James Brown is a proponent of vedic meditation, and the founder of Vedic Path Meditation (https://vedicpathmeditation.com), who teaches people from all walks of life the art of this ancient practice. Over the last ten years, James has taught thousands of people how to meditate more effectively around his home city of San Francisco, at conferences around the world, and to employees of some of the world's biggest companies including Salesforce, BitTorrent, and many others. A student of vedic master Maharishi Vyasananda, James studied this form of medidation for years before sharing it with the world, including an intensive practice in India, high in the Himalayan mountains. And if you've ever been the kind of person to this that meditation is lumped into the "too hard" basket, or that it's always been a chore for you, chances are that James is the man who can turn that viewpoint around.In this episode, James enlightens us about what vedic meditation is and the how its process works, what a mantra is and how it applies to vedic meditation, how meditation can install the state of flow into your life, how most of us are human doings, when we should be human beings, some tactics that may help you stick to a meditation practice, why binaural beats can be an effective meditation for some, though why they're not the only answer, how to combine certain other practices with meditation, and so much more.You can learn more about James by checking out his websites below. VEDIC PATH MEDITATION: https://vedicpathmeditation.com/ FLOW MEDITATION: https://www.flowmeditation.cc/  CONNECTConnect with Leon The Alchemist online for more intensive biohacking, longevity, and performance advice daily, with exclusive content you won't find anywhere else:INSTAGRAM: @LeonTheAlchemist | https://www.instagram.com/leonthealchemist TWITTER: @AlchemistLeon | https://twitter.com/alchemistleonLINKTREE: https://linktr.ee/leonthealchemistWEBSITE: http://bioalchemy.coCOURSE: http://bio.ax/  LEARNWant to take your biohacking skills to the next level?

Dr Daniel Chao is a neurotechonology entrepreneur, specialising in wearable devices that can improve the performance of the human brain. Most notable known for founding the company Halo Neuroscience (https://www.haloneuro.com/), a company that produces the Halo Sport, a biohacking device that works by applying a small electric current to the area of he brain that controls movement–putting it into a state of hyperlearning.The neurostimulation that Halo employs leads the brain to become plastic, which makes it much easier for us to learn how to do new things. This state of neuroplasticity is something I spoke about in a previous episode in depth during my interview with Victor Mifsud the Blind Biohacker, and something Dr Chao will shed much more light on in this episode. But in short, this technology has some incredibly promising applications not just for human performance, but also for healing and rewiring the brain, as well as other parts of the body and nervous system.In this episode, we talk about what neuroplasticity is and how it can be beneficial for the brain, what the Halo device is and how it can supercharge learning, how your brain actually learns a new skill and why you should learn in the morning, how Halo helps you learn skills up to 50% faster, why it's being used by the military, surgeons, and pilots to improve work performance, how safe getting electrical stimulation of the brain using Halo us, how you can protect your brain from ageing and disease, and much more.If you like what you hear in this episode and want to get your own Halo to upgrade your learning abilities, Dr Chao has provided a discount code for listeners of this podcast to get the best price possible on the device. When you use the code "BIOALCHEMY" at checkout on the Halo Neuro website, you'll save yourself some money on this epic brain-hacking device. HALO: https://www.haloneuro.com/ DISCOUNT CODE: "BIOALCHEMY" CONNECTConnect with Leon The Alchemist online for more intensive biohacking, longevity, and performance advice daily, with exclusive content you won't find anywhere else:INSTAGRAM: @LeonTheAlchemist | https://www.instagram.com/leonthealchemist TWITTER: @AlchemistLeon | https://twitter.com/alchemistleonLINKTREE: https://linktr.ee/leonthealchemistWEBSITE: http://bioalchemy.coCOURSE: http://bio.ax/  LEARNWant to take your biohacking skills to the next level?

Tim Gray is a biohacker, avid self-experimenter, and founder of the Health Optimisation Summit, as well as one of the most well-known biohackers that inhabits this ball of rock hurtling through the cosmos we all call home. Tim has spent years testing, evaluating, and measuring thousands of biohacking techniques to improve health, cognition, and overall wellness, and now spends a great deal of his life sharing that information with the world.Tim's journey into biohacking started from a range of health problems that he decided to take into his own hands and overcome, when a lot of traditional healing avenues seemed to not offer him much help. Many of these issues Tim believes stemmed from mercury poisoning, which is something he will go into some detail into this episode. And after having also discovered the powerful benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy, Tim opened up his own clinic in London where people can bring the benefits of this technology into their own lives. And if you've never heard of how this technology can aid in overall health and recovery, prepare to have your eyes opened.In this episode, we talk about how Tim defines biohacking, how mercury poisoning lead him to take control of his own health, how you may be contaminated by mercury and other heavy metals from things like fillings in your teeth as well as fish, why farmed fish is so damaging to human health, how you could potentially have mercury poisoning even if your parents had fillings that contained this metal, what hyperbaric oxygen therapy is and the results Tim has had with it over the years, the most important metrics Tim tracks about his biology and why he no longer tracks as much as he did, some of the weirdest biohacks Tim has subjected himself to, the most important biohacks Tim recommends everyone should focus on, and much more.As I mentioned, Tim is the founder of the Health Optimisation Summit that's coming up in London this September, so if you can make it or are in the area, I suggest you check it out. There will be some of the biggest biohackers in the world speaking including the father of biohacking Dave Asprey, as well as many others including a personal favourite of mine and previous podcast guest Bob Troia (otherwise known as Quantified Bob), so you should come along if you're able. I'm almost also certain to make it as long as my schedule permits, and I'd love to see some of your faces there if you can make it as well. Full details and tickets can be found at summit.healthoptimisation.com, I hope to see you there. HEALTH OPTIMISATION SUMMIT: https://summit.healthoptimisation.com/TIM'S INSTAGRAM: @timbiohackerHYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY: https://hyperbaricoxygentherapy.co.uk/  CONNECTConnect with Leon The Alchemist online for more intensive biohacking, longevity, and performance advice daily, with exclusive content you won't find anywhere else:INSTAGRAM: @LeonTheAlchemist | https://www.instagram.com/leonthealchemist TWITTER: @AlchemistLeon | https://twitter.com/alchemistleonLINKTREE: https://linktr.ee/leonthealchemistWEBSITE: http://bioalchemy.coCOURSE: http://bio.ax/  LEARNWant to take your biohacking skills to the next level?

Dr Aubrey De Grey is one of the world's leading experts in solving the problem of human ageing. A biomedical gerontologist, as well as Chief Science Officer and co-founder of the SENS Research Foundation (https://sens.org/), Dr DeGrey is at the forefront of research in solving diseases and disabilities related to human ageing, that will likely lead to us living much longer and healthier lives in the very near future.A few years ago, Dr De Grey put forward that the first person to live to be 1,000 years old has already likely been born, and if you're under 40 years of age now and in reasonably good health, you have a good chance of staying young and healthy forever. And while that may sound like science fiction to some, and was controversial in some fields, the fact is that as Dr De Grey will explain in this episode, we don't need to solve ageing tomorrow for this to happen — we only need to extend life by a decade or so with new advances in technology, and keep succeeding in that respect to make this a reality.In this episode, we discuss what it may take for humanity to live to be 1,000 years old, the kinds of problems we need to solve to achieve this, some of the breakthroughs SENS has been responsible for so far, why we may be only a few years away from some serious breakthroughs in solving the problem of ageing, why extending life won't only be something for the super-rich, some of the consequences of having a population living to be much longer, the things you can do now to extend your life — which may surprise you — and so much more.I urge all of you to check out the phenomenal work SENS is doing, which you can learn more about via the links below. SENS: https://sens.org/SENS ON INSTAGRAM: @senseresearchfoundationSENS RESEARCH: https://www.sens.org/our-research/  CONNECTConnect with Leon The Alchemist online for more intensive biohacking, longevity, and performance advice daily, with exclusive content you won't find anywhere else:INSTAGRAM: @LeonTheAlchemist | https://www.instagram.com/leonthealchemist TWITTER: @AlchemistLeon | https://twitter.com/alchemistleonLINKTREE: https://linktr.ee/leonthealchemistWEBSITE: http://bioalchemy.coCOURSE: http://bio.ax/  LEARNWant to take your biohacking skills to the next level?

Feeling salty? Well unfortunately, it looks like most of us aren't salty enough when it comes to our intake of sodium, despite governments and certain organisations saying we should be eating less of it. But how correct are the current dietary guidelines when it comes to salt? And what are the dangers of not enough of it in the diet? Well, all that and more is coming up in today's episode.In case you weren’t aware, salt – or sodium – is an extremely important element when it comes to human biology, and without it, you’d be dead. Despite all this, sodium is something that’s received a bad rap over the last few decades, due mostly to how much salt is in the standard diet of those in many developed countries, especially in the United States. But you may be surprised to know that although America is one of the biggest culprits when it comes to recommending to its people to lower salt intake, it's by far not the biggest consumer of sodium. And the countries that are, are much healthier than America is.In this episode, I talk about the major myths of salt and where they came from, how inaccurate a lot of the current salt dogma is when it comes to its relation to stroke and heart disease, why sodium is so essential for our health, some of the processes salt is responsible for in the human body, why much of our salt contains harmful microplastics, the sources of salt I personally use that are not contaminated, how much salt I generally use on a daily basis, and much more. PLASTIC IN SALT: https://bit.ly/2xTExit PINK SALT: https://amzn.to/31eEOLy  CONNECTConnect with Leon The Alchemist online for more intensive biohacking, longevity, and performance advice daily, with exclusive content you won't find anywhere else:INSTAGRAM: @LeonTheAlchemist | https://www.instagram.com/leonthealchemist TWITTER: @AlchemistLeon | https://twitter.com/alchemistleonLINKTREE: https://linktr.ee/leonthealchemistWEBSITE: http://bioalchemy.coCOURSE: http://bio.ax/  LEARNWant to take your biohacking skills to the next level?

Dr Shawn Baker is a medical doctor, orthopaedic surgeon, former soldier, athlete, and world-record holder, Dr Baker is known to many online as the carnivore king, as he's one of the world's leading proponents of the carnivore diet. In case you weren't aware, the carnivore diet is exactly as it sounds, where people who hold this dietary observation eat almost exclusively meat, and basically nothing else.The carnivore diet is gaining a lot of popularity of late, with a ton of people turning to it for a variety of reasons, though where it's seemed to have the most success is as a potential treatment for a host of autoimmune conditions. But it's also generating a lot of discussion online, as well as criticism, from those who don't believe it can be a completely healthy choice.In this episode, we discuss why Dr Baker turned to the carnivore diet and what were the major benefits he saw from it, what the current research is saying about being 100% carnivore and why many other people are turning to it, some information that suggests red meat can potentially prevent ageing, what some of the potential adverse side-effects could be, the ethics of being a carnivore and what kinds of meats would be preferable, the potential hazards of low-quality commercial-grade meat, the potential dangers of amyloids in industrially-raised meat, why high cholesterol can actually be beneficial in older people, some of Dr Baker's own health and performance routines that have helped him break world records after the age of 50, and much more.As I mentioned in yesterday's solo episode, I don't necessarily agree with the carnivore diet in many ways for my own health, though that doesn't mean there aren't people like Dr Baker in this episode who are much more informed than I am on the topic, and who have research to back up why it can be effective in many cases, or why it seems to work extremely well for many people. I do personally eat meat, though meat and other intake of animal products for me is only around 20%-30% of my diet, so I'm a far cry from being a total carnivore, but I'm also a far cry from being a vegan.But again, I will say that to many people listening, this episode will be somewhat controversial. However, regardless of whether you agree with Dr Baker or not, I'd only ask you to treat his knowledge and experience with as much respect as you'd treat that of any other human. If you disagree, like I do with certain parts of the carnivore diet, that's fine. As I've said many times on this podcast, not every lifestyle choice is for everyone, and everyone is free to do their own research, and make up their own mind. I also recommend you seek out Dr Baker's recent interview on the Joe Rogan podcast, as he shares much more there that I couldn't in this 30 minute episode. DR BAKER ON INSTAGRAM: @shawnbaker1967DR BAKER ON TWITTER: @sbakermdDR BAKER'S WEBSITE: https://www.shawn-baker.com/ JOE ROGAN EPISODE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yj_Bc9hdHa0  CONNECTConnect with Leon The Alchemist online for more intensive biohacking, longevity, and performance advice daily, with exclusive content you won't find anywhere else:INSTAGRAM: @LeonTheAlchemist | https://www.instagram.com/leonthealchemist TWITTER: @AlchemistLeon | https://twitter.com/alchemistleonLINKTREE: https://linktr.ee/leonthealchemistWEBSITE: http://bioalchemy.coCOURSE: http://bio.ax/  LEARNWant to take your biohacking skills to the next level?

Meat: should we eat it? I do eat meat. And while I'm lucky enough to be in the position to afford the absolute best quality animal products from creatures that have lived natural, healthy, stress-free lives, that doesn't mean I haven't questioned my desires to take myself out of the chain of death, regardless of how long killing animals has been a part of human existence. I've been asked  the question many times about my consumption of meat for both ethical and health reasons, but it's the ethics part that's playing the biggest role in this episode.In advance, this episode of the podcast isn't like any other that's come before, as it's not necessarily only about biohacking your health when it comes to food. And while diet obviously plays a big part in human health, the simple fact is that this is also getting muddied by the fact that there are now ethical concerns when it comes to the consumption of eating animals. And not only just killing animals for food that have lived natural lives, but the fact that many people believe killing in any regard is unethical, and shouldn't be a part of humanity's food system at all.Regardless of what dietary observation you hold, chances are you're likely not going to agree with something I say in this episode. A part of that may be because I think we're all guilty of death and destruction to a certain degree (and yes, that means you too vegans), but also maybe because I raise some points in this episode that may be confronting to you. Or maybe, it's just because you think I have my facts wrong. All of these reasons are fine, and we don't have to agree. I may very well be wrong, as I don't profess to have all the answers.But in saying that, I thought it was time for me to bring this issue up, based on my current beliefs, understanding, as well as my desire to let it be known that whatever you observe when it comes to the way you eat, in the end it's your choice. However, it's also important to let it be known that ethics also don't always coincide with what's best for your health, which isn't always the easiest pill to swallow. CONNECTConnect with Leon The Alchemist online for more intensive biohacking, longevity, and performance advice daily, with exclusive content you won't find anywhere else:INSTAGRAM: @LeonTheAlchemist | https://www.instagram.com/leonthealchemist TWITTER: @AlchemistLeon | https://twitter.com/alchemistleonLINKTREE: https://linktr.ee/leonthealchemistWEBSITE: http://bioalchemy.coCOURSE: http://bio.ax/  LEARNWant to take your biohacking skills to the next level?

Dr Olli Sovijärvi is a medical doctor, biohacker, and leading light in the biohacking community. Olli ditched his career in the standard medical system in Finland after coming to the realisation that the "sick care" system didn't work in many ways, and turned to holistic health and biohacking, in order to learn about and share with the world what people could do to prevent sickness and disease, instead of just treating those conditions once people had them.Alongside Jaakko Halmetoja and Teemu Arina, Olli is one of the authors of the Biohacker's Handbook (https://biohackingbook.com/), a fantastic manual for those who want to take control of all aspects of their health, and learn what it takes to get the most out of each day by optimising every aspect of their lives imaginable. And when he's not creating kickass manuals for human optimisation, he's also working on projects like the Biohacker Summit, which will be celebrating its 5th anniversary this November in Helsinki, Finland.In this episode, we talk about why Olli turned his back on the standard healthcare system in Finland, what anti-nutrients are and why they're so important to remove from your foods, how powerful nature can be as a healing tool, how you can start to see healing benefits from being in nature for as little as 10 minutes, what the research is saying about EMF and why Olli believes they're so dangerous, what some of the reasons are as to why the Finnish people are some of the longest-lived and healthiest on the planet, why fats are not bad, some of his daily biohacking practices, and so much more. We also discuss the Finnish concept of sisu, which is a concept I was familiar with, though many of you may not be. And in my error, I forgot to ask Olli to elaborate on it for all of you. In short though, sisu is what the Finns consider their determined spirit and persistence, which he believes is a part of what leads to Finland's healthy population.If you're interested in also snagging yourself a copy of the Biohacker's Handbook, I recommend you do so, you can use the discount code below to save yourself 10% off when you buy. OLLI'S INSTAGRAM: @ollisovijarviBIOHACKING BOOK: https://biohackingbook.com/ DISCOUNT CODE: 10OFF CONNECTConnect with Leon The Alchemist online for more intensive biohacking, longevity, and performance advice daily, with exclusive content you won't find anywhere else:INSTAGRAM: @LeonTheAlchemist | https://www.instagram.com/leonthealchemist TWITTER: @AlchemistLeon | https://twitter.com/alchemistleonLINKTREE: https://linktr.ee/leonthealchemistWEBSITE: http://bioalchemy.coCOURSE: http://bio.ax/  LEARNWant to take your biohacking skills to the next level?

Learning is awesome, but learning fast is better. And let's face it, if we can all take shortcuts to allowing our brain to take in more information, and retain that information better, I'm sure we'll all say yes to that. And that's exactly what I'm going to cover in this episode, with a ton of biohacks to better learn languages, that I'm you can implement for almost any skill.This year, I've challenged myself to learn Czech, which is notorious for being one of the most difficult languages in the world, especially when it comes to European languages. And due to some recently-uncovered family history, I'm likely eligible for citizenship, which means that it's definitely in my interest to not necessarily master the language, but at least become proficient in it. And for that reason, I've created a morning routine protocol that I'll be using to learn Czech, that's designed to spike my brain's learning capacity, and make language learning easier.In this episode, you'll learn how to set yourself up for optimal learning through sleep, how to increase memory with dream recall, how to use pen and paper to better remember your dreams, how you can learn new skills while you're asleep, a simple biohack to increase your neuroplasticity that involves brushing your teeth, how to block out distractions to increase focus, what the research is saying about binaural beats and learning, using exercise to improve memory, boosting your acetylcholine levels, and much more.All resources mentioned in this episode can be found below. CILTEP: https://bit.ly/2fAfKp4 DOPAMINE BRAIN FOOD: https://bit.ly/2W5xNZN BRAIN.FM: https://brain.fm/ ACETYLCHOLINE BRAIN FOOD: https://bit.ly/2Mh7T5r  CONNECTConnect with Leon The Alchemist online for more intensive biohacking, longevity, and performance advice daily, with exclusive content you won't find anywhere else:INSTAGRAM: @LeonTheAlchemist | https://www.instagram.com/leonthealchemist TWITTER: @AlchemistLeon | https://twitter.com/alchemistleonLINKTREE: https://linktr.ee/leonthealchemistWEBSITE: http://bioalchemy.coCOURSE: http://bio.ax/  LEARNWant to take your biohacking skills to the next level?
