100 Interviews with 100 Major Influencers

 

Today on the podcast we are joined by Joe Cohen, the founder of SelfHacked.com, one of the most recognized and trusted sources for natural health research on the planet. Everything that they put online about health is backed by evidence and medically reviewed. The SelfHacked library delivers sustainable solutions for optimal health performance and anti-aging. 

 Joe and I, recently met in Croatia and he's a really smart guy. He spent years of his life sick suffering from inflammation, brain fog, fatigue, digestive problems, anxiety, depression and other issues that were poorly understood in both conventional and alternative medicine. He was frustrated by this and he was frustrated by the lack of good information that was out there. So he started on his own personal journey of self experimentation and learning, and after years of experiments, he finally healed himself. Then he found that this online resource called SelfHacked.com that after only four years gets millions of monthly readers. Joe is a thriving entrepreneur, author and speaker. He's also the CEO and founder of Self Decode, and Lab Test Analyzer. What is really cool with Self Decode is that they analyze your DNA and then give you the results back suggesting areas where your health may be at risk or things that may come up for you in the future.

 Joe’s mission is to help people gain access to the most up to date unbiased and science based research and information to optimize your health. It was a fun interview and we got a lot of time to dig in deep understanding biohacking from Joe's perspective. We chatted with Joe about Self Decode and Self Hacked. We talked about Joe's diet and routine, how Joe manages influence and what drives him. Later in the show we chat more about using biohacking to optimize mentality.

~ Current Series ~

100 Interviews with 100 Major Influencers

 

Using technology to help people focus, relax and sleep is changing the way we live in the modern world. Anyone with a smartphone has easy access to any type of music they want to listen to at any time. What is really interesting is that neuroscience is also on the bandwagon of understanding the effects of music on the brain because it goes hand-in-hand with making us mortal humans just a little bit more effective in our daily lives. 

 

Brain.FM is leading this charge by creating music to stimulate the brain that’s not too stimulating but rather helps reduce distractions and increase focus. One of their first users, Dan Clark has been CEO of Brain.FM since 2017 and we had the opportunity to pick his brain about all the magic behind Brain.FM’s success.

 

On today’s show, we dive deep into how the right sounds can help us take our productivity to the next level and sleep, meditation or relaxation even deeper. He talks about how they combine A.I. and professional music composers together to make highly effective tracks that their customers can listen to and get results from. We touch on why this works so well on the human brain, why it is replicating a natural part of our brains, and how this type of technology is helping people not only operate better in their own lives, but how neural-phase locking is helping people with trauma, mental disorders and replacing medication for people with ADHD.

Dr. Andrew Hill~ Founder of Peak Brain Institute

~ Current Series ~
100 Interviews with 100 Major Influencers

 

Do you really know if you have a healthy brain?  Most of us would like to think so, but how can we really tell? We know if we have a healthy body, we know if we have healthy habits. So why don’t we know if we have healthy brains?  One reason why is because society associates unhealthy brains with mental disorders, and if we don’t have a mental disorder then our brain must be healthy. Right?....Wrong!

 

We could actually have problems with our brains for years before it shows signs.  Brain health is on the cusp of becoming a really big movement and Dr. Andrew Hill is one that helping lead that movement.  Andrew is a neuroscientist, entrepreneur, and biohacking advocate. He holds a Ph.D. in Cognitive Neuroscience from UCLA, and is best known as an expert neurofeedback practitioner and brain fitness coach. With an extensive history working in mental health, and as a university lecturer and researcher, Dr. Hill founded Peak Brain Institute in 2015. Peak Brain Institute a community-oriented company whose mission is to expand understanding and accessibility to brain-hacking technologies. Peak Brain Institute and Andrew’s main mission is to make more brain gyms, where people can learn about and exercise their brain, without it being a mental issue. 

 

On the show today we chat in depth with Andrew about how our brains actually operate. We talk about how scanning brains can prevent many mental disorders, flow-states and the effects of alcohol and drugs on our brains. We also discuss the importance of meditation and how it is really changing brains for the better, and we discuss the many benefits people with healthy brains can get by scanning and continuing to exercise the brain regularly.

Ep.409 ~ Ice Baths, Climbing Kilimanjaro in Record Time w/ Wim Hof & BioHacking ~ Scott Carney

Ep.409 ~ Ice Baths, Climbing Kilimanjaro in Record Time w/ Wim Hof & BioHacking ~ Scott Carney

Scott Carney ~ Co-Author of 'What Doesn't Kill Us' w/ Wim Hof

~ Current Series ~
100 Interviews with 100 Major Influencers

 

Could you imagine climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in record time with no training? How about being injected with a deadly endotoxin and your body has no reaction to it? Or even just completing more pushups than you ever thought possible with no oxygen in your lungs?

Most people think these are impossible feats. Something only reserved for superhumans or for people that spend years in training. But they are not. All of the aforementioned activities have been accomplished by regular people that apply one simple breathing method, the Wim Hof Method.  

Our guest today is an investigative journalist and a long-time student of the Wim Hof Method. When Scott heard about Wim and his wild claims, he went to meet Wim with one purpose….to prove him wrong. After Scott spent a few days at Wim’s mountain house in Poland, he realized Wim and his wacky breathing tactics were the real deal. He was convinced because Scott himself began doing more pushups than he ever had completed with no oxygen in his lungs. He took baths in freezing cold water without getting hypothermia, and if those weren’t enough, Wim took Scott and in the dead of winter they both climbed the tallest mountain in Poland wearing nothing but shorts and boots!

Scott then spent the next six years of his life training with Wim, learning these methods and eventually he climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in record time also wearing only boots and shorts and co-authored with Wim on the best-selling book What Doesn’t Kill Us.

Today on the show, Scott talks to us about the Wim Hof Method and how its application helped him gain more control over his body and mindset. He also shares breathing techniques, tips on how to identify false gurus and cultivating your own inner guru when looking to make life changes.

Could you imagine flying a fighter jet at 1000 miles per hour? Or flying that same jet upside down and only 3 feet away from another jet also going just as fast as you are? To operate at this level you need an incredible amount of training to become one of the best jet pilots on the planet and today’s guest is one of them and his name is John Foley .  John is a retired Blue Angel pilot for the Navy. The “Blues” as they are called, are known to be the absolute best jet pilots on earth. To perform at this level, takes a lot of focus and hard work and much of his training has helped him transfer into the high-performing entrepreneur and public speaker that he is today.

Today on the show, John talks about his experience as a Blue Angel fighter pilot.  He shares with us about training for dog fighting in the air flying at lightning speed. John talks about what it is like flying at 1000 miles per hour, the scariest flight he ever made almost leading to disaster, and how he mastered his thoughts and emotions to get behind the pilots seat the very next day.  As you could imagine it takes an intense high-performance mentality, so we also ask John about focus, meditation, visualization, flow-state and how to master your mindset for success. Lastly, John shares about applying this to business and having a professional speaking career!

Hollis Carter ~ Co-Founder of The Baby Bathwater Institute

~ Current Series ~
100 Interviews with 100 Major Influencers

Hey podcast listeners, today we are hopping on the mic with Hollis Carter. Hollis is an internet marketer from back in the day when it was a Wild Wild West show. He has had quite a bit of success and one of the first people to create a video sales letter. Throughout his years as an entrepreneur, he kept going to these conferences that were all about “pitching and selling”. After many different conferences, his now partner Michael Lovich and he got to talking about creating a community of high-level entrepreneurs and high-caliber people that forbid ‘pitching and selling’ at their events. Thus, they created a community of entrepreneurs called Baby Bathwater Institute.

Each year, they have an event on an island in Croatia called Baby Bathwater Island. Last year, I attended and I was blown away by the content. A friend of mine said it was kind of like Mario Bros. the video game, and warping from Level 2 to Level 12 in a matter of a few short days. I couldn’t agree more, and as soon as I left the event last year, I knew I wanted to attend again this year. That event is coming up soon, at the end of June on an Island in Croatia. On the show today, Hollis and I chat about the experience of being on the island and what it like running a community of high-profile entrepreneurs, influencers and thought leaders. One thing that I really like about their events, is that there are no paid professional speakers. If someone is sharing their content, it is because they have proven their methods, and they are there to share and be a part of the community.
