Listener Q&A [00:29:48]

As compiled, deciphered, edited and sometimes read by Brock Armstrong, the Podcast Sidekick.

How To Biohack A Float Tank Experience [00:32:25]

Shane says: Wondering if you know of anything that you can take when you go into a float tank? I have had great experiences so far but I would LOVE to go deeper!

In my response, I recommend:
-Ketamine and LSD
-Box breathing/meditation app
-Wholetones by Michael Tyrrell
-Underwater audio player

Reversing The Damage of EMF [00:49:30]

Sheridan (and Chris) says: I am curious of your thoughts around biohacking tools if you have worked in a high EMF exposure area? Is there something you can do, after the fact? For example, I work in a shopping centre and the whole centre's meters are right outside our window. -- Chris also asked a similar question about how to undo the damage of working at places like AT&T and Apple for his entire career.

In my response, I recommend:
-My interview with Dr. Mercola on how to reverse damage from EMF
-Ben’s “How To Biohack The Ultimate Healthy Home” book
-The "EMF/Tinfoil hat" book Ben mentions
-Ketone esters (Ben mentions HVMN and Ketoblitz brands)
-Trusii Hydrogen Rich Water tablets and Rich Water generator
-Lugol's iodine (no more than 1,100 mcg of iodine per day - the tolerable upper limit)
-Thorne Resveracel
-Time release melatonin
-Thorne 5-Hydroxytryptophan
-Doc Parsley's Sleep Remedy
-Red blood cell support (I recommend this stack from Biotropic Labs)
-TianChi for full spectrum antioxidant support along with large intake of wild plants/herbs/spices
-Thorne curcumin
-Aquatru Trace Liquid Mineral drops or Natural Vitality Trace Mineral shots
-Colima Salt

Training With The Maffetone Method [01:06:25]

Callan says: I am a fit 27-year-old female doing HIIT training 4-5 times per week. I can run a sub-7-minute mile but I am trying to build my endurance and aerobic base. I have gotten into Triathlons and want to get good at them. I have heard about the MAF method where you spend 3-6 months building your aerobic base and never touching the anaerobic zone. Should I take 3 months off and train aerobically? Is that still a thing? Should I add strength and HIIT into that or do I need to take the time off to train aerobically?

In my response, I recommend:
-Beyond Training

C-60 For Anti-Aging [01:13:52]

Kim says: I am interested in your opinion in the atom cluster called Carbon 60.

In my response, I recommend:
-C60 (buckminsterfullerene)
-Sexy hair
-JOOVV photobiomodulation
