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.

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

~ 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.
