Pain equals purpose: male mental health and the balance of masculinity: All heart, All spine
First of all this episode was put on the back burner whilst a few episodes took centre stage during the outset of covid-19. Thank you to Matt Dipll for being patient as this was recorded some weeks ago!! Danke! So moving to the episode, firstly this is a wonderful, wonderful conversation with some fantastic reflections about culture, the advancement of life, the deep biology of each of us, and the humanness of the life narrative. Matt has a background in Chinese Medicine, Has travelled and lived all over the world practising and then heading into the world of biohacking after losing a friend, and being in and around workers in technology and also his own health. We talk technology, sun=bjectiveness and objectiveness and how this was the seeing towards Matt working around his Male psyche, emotional needs and impact of this on day to day living. Matt brings into the conversation about how mental health presentations also are represented in biological health. Matt talks about how life, early needs and wants are mirrored through interpersonal connection. Pain is most certainly an underlying reason for health issues (See my blogs on ACES and illness). Matt talks about inside out and outside in and how to 'be' a man.. What is a man and what is healthy masculinity? There are layers here and this is THE most wonderful part of the conversation today. THIS is authentic and raw and real. You need to listen deeply here so be in a space where you can absorb this message. It's so good. Like for reals really good! Apologies for coughing in the episode, anyone would think that there was a reason for this. (perhaps?)

Now we are in the light of Covid-19 this approach is likely to be more important than ever.

Neurohacking- When performance of brain and body synchronise
Today I'm joined by Ben Cote from Neurohacker Collective. (NHC). We get straight into who NHC are and what happens at HQ. How dialling in and stacking your health comes from a place of assistance rather than the phenomena of "hacking'. This really is a natural approach and one hugely supported in science and research. Ben explains about Qualia and why this is such a great nootropic and not a smart drug meant to "make you smarter". We then go onto cover Eternus and why this is a great stack for longevity, which i am sure many of us want! What Qualia actually does is literally quite amazing, and Im saying that after almost 6 months of taking it. so cannnot wait to be a long term supporter of my own cellular functioning and health. (which I have been doing but this takes it to the next level) It has to be experienced in order to get where we are coming from in this episode in terms of the phenomenological experience. (One persons deep lived experience) and this has been really hard for me to describe to people and I'm quite a lexical communicator! Ben talks through the process of how NHC learn and trial the contents of the products and why they make the difference they do to you if you are hoping to achieve that mental performance breakthrough. For me the empathic resonance and attunement and #levelup I get when I take these products has literally moved me into a different domain of human connection, thinking and reasoning. Ben discuses how he gets to speak with so many people at trade shows and what people reflect and how the narrative reflection of most consumers of these products is pretty similar, and that folks makes a better than a few anecdotal findings. The ingredients of these products are all aimed at creating a naturalist harmony within your own body and mind and looking at them they are all essential ingredients of a well oiled machine cascading in a bottom up and top down manner. You really DO need to try them, with all of the caveats we speak about. But do head over to neurohacker.com and get your orders in!

Broken to beautiful, healing, health and human connection
Todays episode features Shawn Wells MPH, LDN, RD, CISSN, FISSN and is a humdinging top to toe neuronal frazzle of delight. Which may sound like a fangirling overload, however sometimes there are some people who speak in such an eloquent way that all I can say is this is a must listen/watch for you! Shawn is balanced, critical, and speaks about his journey from the deepest places of what he calls his brokenness to his place of beauty which is a genuine well intentioned place of helping others heal. We talk positivity, finding your purpose, passion and tribe for longevity. We look at health indicators and how to sift through the plethora of information relating to diet and nutrition. Most importantly Shawn reiterates purpose and mindset and how happiness might just be the key to fulfilment and those extra few years on your life! Shawn is a Nutritional Biochemist, Registered Dietician, Certified Sports Nutritionist and Chief Clinical Dietician and Worlds Greatest Formulator, ..basically I think he is a wizard of all things from research to the mitochondria, "now thats what I call science!" (which will be the name of the next episode when I get chance to speak with him in the future) Shawn can be found here: https://shawnwells.com/ and here https://zonehalo.com/ He is on Insta and Twitter as the same name so go follow him quick sharp!

Top down-Bottom Up? Learning about who you really are, heuristics of Education, Work, Life and Flow.
This episode is a fantastic start to 2020 for anyone who still might not know who they are, thinks they have to have all the qualifications and skills by the age of 21 and who may need a reassuring reflection as we head into the new year new you rhetoric. Im joined by Sagar Doshi today and this is a super jam packed top to bottom episode of zippy one line motivational assurances that you are doing just fine as you are, for example Sagar quotes "where you study or work is not the sum of your life" (I love this by the way) We talk how tests/exams/assessments are carried out to 'measure your output' and how this is often seen as the reflection of the entire picture and how this affects young people and adults and yet course correction and progress are a part of life. Sagar is a product manager at Imbellus who are a games/assessment studio that seeks to measure abstract skills—and ultimately, human potential—using game-based assessments. So this episode travels over technology and human domains and the conversation is packed with the all important discussion of reaching your potential. I loved this episode so much, I have listened back to it (which is unheard of), its that good, IMHO. See you next time I refer to Daniel Kahneman's book "thinking fast and slow" so this is your check in on the show notes for it.
