    Dave Asprey ON: Simple Steps to Reduce Your Biological Age by 12% & Ways to Manage Your Emotional Stress to Change Your Life

    enNovember 20, 2023

    Podcast Summary

    • Embracing Laziness for Better Health and Well-beingLaziness can be a positive trait when used in a strategic manner. By understanding our body's natural inclination for ease and convenience, we can make changes that improve our energy, focus, and strength, leading to better physical and mental health.

      Laziness is not always a negative trait. According to Dave Asprey, our bodies are lazy, not us. He suggests tapping into the power of laziness to improve our health and well-being. Laziness often hinders our efforts to make positive changes, but Asprey encourages us to work with our body's natural inclination for ease and convenience. By understanding our body's desire for efficiency, we can find innovative ways to improve our energy, focus, and strength. This perspective reframes laziness as an opportunity for finding shortcuts and optimizing our routines. It reminds us to be kind to ourselves and align our actions with our body's natural tendencies, ultimately leading to better physical and mental health.

    • Embracing Laziness: Working Smart Instead of HardBy understanding and embracing our natural instinct of conserving energy, we can find innovative ways to motivate ourselves and achieve better outcomes by working smarter, not harder.

      Our society often values hard work over efficiency, but this mindset can be counterproductive. Laziness, in the sense of conserving energy, is actually a natural instinct of our body's operating system. We shouldn't shame ourselves for wanting to save energy or take the easy way out. Instead, we can use this understanding to hack laziness and find innovative ways to motivate ourselves. For example, when it comes to exercise, research suggests that shorter, more efficient workouts can lead to better results than long, grueling sessions. By embracing our body's desire to save energy, we can align our motivation with our goals and achieve better outcomes. So, rather than always valuing hard work, it's important to prioritize working smart and using the right tools for success.

    • The Importance of Essential Minerals and Vitamins for Overall Health and Well-beingPrioritizing the intake of minerals and vitamins can improve physical, mental, and emotional health, as well as help identify deficiencies and focus on areas that need improvement. Be conscious and proactive in nourishing the body for optimal health.

      Our overall health and well-being rely heavily on the presence of essential minerals and vitamins in our bodies. These nutrients play a crucial role in directing minerals to the right places in our bodies and supporting various functions. Without proper mineral intake, our bodies struggle to deal with stress, leading to emotional and mental challenges. It's important to recognize that many of the emotional stress we experience on a daily basis may actually stem from our bodies being malnourished. By prioritizing the intake of minerals and vitamins, we can create a foundation for better physical, mental, and emotional health. Tracking and measuring our target areas, such as strength, cardiovascular fitness, energy, metabolism, brain function, and stress resistance, can help us identify any deficiencies and focus on the areas that need improvement. The key is to be conscious and proactive in nourishing our bodies with the right nutrients for optimal health.

    • Prioritizing Health for a Fulfilling LifeBreak down health goals into manageable categories and focus on one or two at a time. Use technology, techniques, and new insights to save time and effort while maximizing benefits. Taking control of health leads to a vibrant life.

      Health often takes a backseat to other priorities in our lives. We may think of it as important, but it gets overshadowed by desires for power, energy, and love. However, it's crucial to prioritize our health and understand what it truly means for us individually. Dave Asprey advises breaking down health into categories and focusing on one or two goals at a time. Whether it's improving muscles, brain function, or managing stress, there are various technologies and techniques available to support our health journey. With the rapid advancements in biology knowledge and the use of machine learning, we have access to new insights and methods that can save us time and effort. Even in spiritual aspects like meditation, finding practices that align with our bodies can maximize the benefits in a shorter period. Ultimately, taking control of our health and making it a priority can lead to a more fulfilling and vibrant life.

    • Finding the Right Technique for Personal GrowthDiscovering a practice that resonates with you, such as the "Reset Process," can help you unload emotional baggage, achieve personal growth, and find peace and love.

      Finding a technique that works for you is key when it comes to personal growth and self-improvement. Dave Asprey, a neuroscience expert, emphasizes the importance of discovering a practice that resonates with you, whether it's meditation, breathwork, or other methods. He highlights the effectiveness of the "Reset Process" in dealing with triggers and negative emotions. This process involves acknowledging the trigger, feeling the associated emotions, and then consciously shifting towards gratitude and forgiveness. By understanding and empathizing with the other person's perspective, you can cultivate a sense of peace and love, ultimately freeing yourself from being triggered by past experiences. The key is to find a technique that helps you unload emotional baggage and achieve personal growth.

    • The Power of Forgiveness: Unlocking Wellness and HarmonyLetting go of emotional baggage through forgiveness not only improves our mental state but also benefits our physical well-being, leading to a more fulfilling and purposeful life.

      Practicing forgiveness and letting go of emotional baggage can have a profound impact on our overall well-being. When we hold onto grudges and unresolved traumas, it not only affects our mental state but also has physical repercussions. Our cells and mitochondria, which have their own consciousness, store these traumas and perceive them as a hostile environment. However, when we engage in deep forgiveness work, we create a sense of safety at a cellular level, allowing our cells to thrive and function optimally. This process of releasing emotional burdens can lead to spiritual cleansing and a more harmonious connection between our body, mind, and soul. By cultivating forgiveness, we can free ourselves from the constant stress, tension, and questioning that arises from unresolved conflicts, enabling us to be present for our loved ones and fulfill our purpose with clarity and ease.

    • Embracing self-love and nourishing our bodies for optimal health and well-being.Cultivating self-love and appreciating the capabilities of our bodies, while prioritizing proper nutrition, can lead to healing, growth, and increased energy for a more fulfilling life.

      Cultivating self-love and forgiveness for our bodies can have a profound impact on our overall health and well-being. By embracing our bodies and appreciating their capabilities, even in times of illness or physical challenges, we can experience healing and growth. The power of our thoughts and emotions plays a significant role in our body's ability to heal and function optimally. Additionally, understanding the importance of protein and choosing high-quality sources is crucial for supporting our health. Animal proteins tend to provide superior amino acid availability compared to plant-based proteins, highlighting the need for a balanced and diverse diet. By prioritizing self-love and nourishing our bodies properly, we can reclaim our energy and lead more fulfilling lives.

    • Ethical and Sustainable Meat Consumption: A Balanced PerspectiveEating ethically and sustainably raised meat can be environmentally-friendly, provide physical nourishment, and contribute to regenerative farming practices. However, caution is advised with certain animal proteins.

      Eating animal protein, specifically ethically and sustainably raised meat, can be ethically justifiable and even more environmentally-friendly than plant-based alternatives. This perspective is based on the idea that humans have a sacred agreement with domesticated animals, where the animals nourish us in exchange for our gratitude. By choosing to consume meat from animals raised with respect and gratitude, we can avoid supporting the harmful practices of industrial plant protein production, which kills numerous small creatures during cultivation. Additionally, animal protein, such as beef, can provide better physical nourishment, stronger energy, and contribute to regenerative farming practices. However, caution should be exercised in consuming certain animal proteins, like chicken, which may lack the necessary nutritional benefits and involve mistreatment of animals.

    • Maximizing Protein Intake and Nutrient Absorption in a Plant-Based DietIncorporating hemp protein and GH supplementation can optimize protein intake, while being cautious of plants high in oxalic acid and considering dairy milk as a longstanding source of essential nutrients.

      When it comes to plant-based diets, it's important to ensure you are getting complete amino acids. While rice and beans can provide this, it can be difficult to consume enough protein from plant sources alone. Hemp protein with the fat removed is a good option as it has the highest amino acid score among plant-based proteins. Additionally, supplementing with GH, which helps escort nutrients from plants into the body, can enhance the benefits of a plant-based diet. However, it's crucial to choose the right plants, as some, like spinach and almonds, can have high levels of oxalic acid, which can lead to health issues. When it comes to milk alternatives, there is a lot of debate, but dairy milk has been consumed by humans for thousands of years as a convenient source of fat and protein.

    • The Impact of Milk on Our Health and Alternatives to ConsiderConsuming milk from grain-fed cows can lead to health issues, while raw milk from grass-fed cows can be healing. Plant-based milk alternatives are unnecessary for most people and come with added costs and potential toxins.

      The type of milk we consume can have a significant impact on our health. Dave Asprey explains that the milk we commonly drink is derived from cows that are fed grain, corn, and soy, resulting in the wrong kind of fat and inflammatory proteins. This can lead to negative effects such as gut issues, brain inflammation, mucus production, and throat infections. While raw milk from grass-fed cows can be healing for many, it is still illegal in some states. Asprey suggests alternatives like butter and ghee, as well as grass-fed whey protein for vegetarians. However, commercially produced fake milks, such as almond milk and oat milk, are not recommended due to their high oxalate levels, bone mineral depletion, and negative impact on blood sugar. Coconut milk is considered a healthier option, although it may not be everyone's preferred taste. Ultimately, it is emphasized that plant-based milk alternatives are unnecessary for most individuals and often come with added costs and potential toxin exposure.

    • The importance of protein and healthy fats in milk substitutes and the need for change in the food industry.Opting for plant-based milk substitutes requires supplementing with additional protein sources and being mindful of consuming healthy fats. A shift towards stable and affordable oils in the food industry can positively impact global health.

      When it comes to milk substitutes, such as coconut milk, they lack protein which is an essential component found in regular milk. Therefore, if you opt for plant-based alternatives, you need to supplement them with additional sources of protein. Moreover, it is important to be mindful of the types of fats we consume. Omega six fats, found in oils like canola, corn, soybean, safflower, and grape seed oil, can slow down metabolism and cause inflammation. On the other hand, saturated fats like coconut oil or butter stimulate metabolism and contribute to hormone production and stable cell membranes. It is crucial to be aware of the kind of fats we consume and make healthier choices. Additionally, the widespread use of unstable oils in packaged goods has contributed to the rise in diseases like diabetes and cancer, emphasizing the need for change in the food industry. Companies like Zero Acre Farms are revolutionizing the market by producing stable and affordable oils using fermentation techniques, which can have a significant impact on global health.

    • Simple Dietary Adjustments for Better Health and Well-beingMaking small changes to your diet, such as avoiding fried and packaged foods, and prioritizing your health as you age, can lead to significant improvements in your overall well-being and vitality.

      Making small changes to your diet, such as avoiding fried foods and packaged foods, can have a significant impact on your overall health and well-being. Jay Shetty shares his personal experience of eliminating packaged foods and how it has transformed his body and energy levels. Additionally, he highlights the importance of cooking with healthier oils like coconut oil or palm oil instead of canola oil. These simple dietary adjustments can make you feel better, more focused, and even help with weight loss. Dave Asprey emphasizes the importance of prioritizing your health as you age, changing your mindset from simply "getting older" to striving to be better every year. Aging doesn't mean you have to accept feeling old; instead, you can adopt a vision of staying vibrant and youthful.

    • Learning from Our Elders: Seeking Wisdom and Inspiration for a Fulfilling LifeBy observing and learning from older individuals who have defied age-related limitations, we can gain valuable insights into maintaining our health and well-being as we grow older, leading to stronger, healthier, and more fulfilling lives.

      Learning from our elders can have a profound impact on our lives. Jay Shetty and Dave Asprey discuss the importance of seeking wisdom and inspiration from older individuals who have achieved remarkable levels of health and vitality. By observing and learning from those who have defied age-related limitations, we gain valuable insights into the possibilities of maintaining our health and well-being as we grow older. Asprey's own experience of running an anti-aging nonprofit group and being mentored by people in their eighties showcases the potential for us to age gracefully, while Shetty's realization prompts us to appreciate and learn from the older generation. By tapping into the knowledge and experiences of our elders, we can strive to live stronger, healthier, and more fulfilled lives.

    Dr. Rahul Jandial: What Your Nightmares Are Trying to Tell You & How to Know Which Dreams You Need to Pay Attention to

    Dr. Rahul Jandial: What Your Nightmares Are Trying to Tell You & How to Know Which Dreams You Need to Pay Attention to

    Do you often remember your dreams?

     

    What was the last dream you can remember?

     

    Today, let's welcome Dr. Rahul Jandial. Rahul is a dual-trained brain surgeon and neuroscientist based at City of Hope in Los Angeles. He leads the Jandial Lab, which explores the intersection of neurobiology and cancer. Beyond his research, Dr. Jandial is dedicated to global health, performing pediatric neurosurgery in charity hospitals across South America and Eastern Europe. He is also the author of the book "This Is Why You Dream," which delves into the science and significance of dreaming.

     

    Jay and Rahul explore the significance of dreams and their impact on our lives, and that the brain is highly active during sleep, generating as much electricity as when awake. This activity suggests that dreaming is not a passive process but an essential function for the brain, helping it process and rehearse experiences, emotions, and creativity.

     

    There are common themes in dreams, such as nightmares, erotic dreams, and motifs like falling or being chased. Rahul highlights that these themes are linked to the brain's imaginative and emotional networks, which are more active during dreaming. Nightmares, for instance, play a crucial role in developing a sense of self and other in children, while in adults, they can indicate unresolved emotional issues or trauma. He also discusses the concept of lucid dreaming, where one becomes aware of dreaming and can exert some control over the dream narrative. 

     

    In this interview, you'll learn:

    How to enhance dream recall

    How to induce lucid dreaming

    How to utilize dreams for creative problem solving

    How to reduce nightmare in children

    Why There’s No Such thing As the Right Person at the Wrong Time & Why Your Ex Was Never The One

    Why There’s No Such thing As the Right Person at the Wrong Time & Why Your Ex Was Never The One

    Do you believe in "right person, wrong time"?

    Do you have realistic expectations about dating?

    Today, Jay will discuss the popular notion of the "right person at the wrong time." He explains that this idea often stems from nostalgia, which can distort our memories by emphasizing the positive aspects of past experiences and minimizing the negatives. This romanticized view of the past can prevent us from addressing present realities and hinder our ability to form healthy relationships.

    Jay also talks about the various factors that influence relationships, such as a person's relationship status, goals, and healing journey. He argues that a person's current circumstances, such as being newly single or single for a long time, significantly shape who they are and their readiness for a relationship. Furthermore, in a healthy relationship, partners should respect and support each other's goals rather than expecting complete alignment. He also highlights the importance of patience and mutual support in the ongoing process of healing from past traumas.

    In this episode, you'll learn:

    How to align goals in a relationship

    How to manage expectations

    How to build a healthy relationship

    How to embrace new possibilities

    By letting go of romanticized notions of the past and embracing the present, we open ourselves to genuine connections. Be open, curious, and positive about dating, we can find meaningful and fulfilling relationships.

    With Love and Gratitude,

    Jay Shetty

She also shared her journey of grappling with the decision to publicly support contraceptive access, which conflicted with her Catholic faith.

    Later in the conversation, Melinda highlighted several key lessons she learned later in life, such as the realization that the world is not equally accessible to everyone, particularly women and people of color. This understanding fueled her advocacy for creating more inclusive environments and breaking down barriers that prevent these groups from reaching their full potential​.

    Why Love Is Not Enough & 5 Things to Focus On More in Dating & Relationships

    Why Love Is Not Enough & 5 Things to Focus On More in Dating & Relationships

    Do you and your partner share values?

    How do you support each other emotionally?

    Today, Jay taps into the  idea that love alone is not sufficient to sustain a healthy relationship. While love is important, other elements such as shared values, emotional maturity, consistent patterns of behavior, and trust are crucial for long-lasting partnerships. Societal norms often romanticize love, leading people to overlook these essential factors.

    Jay discusses the significance of understanding and respecting each other's values, as well as recognizing and addressing patterns of behavior. Emotional maturity, which involves managing and expressing emotions healthily, is highlighted as a key component of a stable relationship. Support and partnership are deemed more critical than love alone.

    In this episode, you'll learn:

    How to communicate your value to your partner

    How to develop emotional maturity

    How to support your partner's emotional growth

    How to build trust in your relationship

    Remember, love is important, but building a relationship on trust, values, and emotional maturity is key.

    With Love and Gratitude,
