Welcome to my Weekly Roundup!
In one convenient post, you're about to discover the most important things I've noticed this week, including the latest news from the fronts of fitness, nutrition, health, wellness, biohacking and anti-aging research, the top photos, videos and stories from this week, upcoming events and speaking appearances, giveaways, specials and a host of other things you may have missed.
New Discoveries Of The Week: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!
-Book: Dirty Genes by Dr. Ben Lynch – I first discovered Dr. Ben Lynch when he ran my genes through “Stratagene” and we recorded this podcast about my results. My mind has been blown by his new Dirty Genes book because it highlights everything from why certain people do horribly on a vegan diet while others thrive, to how to “fix” the genetic hand of cards you've been dealt, to why some people create more dopamine than others and, for those people, how to sleep better, etc., etc., etc. The list of practical health takeaways from this book is a mile long. Add it to your must read.
-Brain.Fm Artificial Intelligence Sounds: Brain.Fm combines artificial intelligence with music to make trance-like tracks that can be used for a wide variety of purposes via their phone app and a set of headphones. I use this on airplanes and for naps. It's also quite good for writing and meditating. I interviewed these guys in this podcast episode and have been using it ever since. You can unlock the potential of music to influence your stress, sleep, recovery and get started for free with Brain.Fm now by clicking here!
-The Human Garage: Yeah, yeah, yeah…you have to travel all the way to Venice Beach, California to get work done by these folks, but it is worth the trip. I interviewed them in the podcast “The Human Garage: Discover How To Reboot Your Body & Recharge Your Brain With The Most Advanced Form Of Bodywork That Exists.” and just visited them earlier today, so their amazing bodywork is still fresh on my mind. If you struggle with an ache or pain you simply cannot beat, get a plane ticket and go see them. It's expensive, but well, well worth it in my opinion. When you call, mention my name and they will take care of you. Be prepared to pay a price for the treatment, but do this treatment if you really want a full body reboot (warning: you may have four bodyworkers operating on you simultaneously).
