The Future of the Quantified Self Movement
What if a $50 smart watch could give you early warning signs for illness, infection, and even disease? Prevention costs less and is more effective than just about any cure, but most of us don’t even manage to get an annual checkup at the doctor. This needs to change. On this week’s podcast, you’ll meet a leading researcher in the quantified self movement actively working to democratize data and personal health.
How to Control Your Fear with Dr. Amy Silver
Worried you might choose the wrong major in college? You probably will. Worried you’ll choose the wrong partner and get your heart broken? That will almost certainly happen. What if you start a new exercise routine and get an injury? Yup, that will likely happen too.
An Introduction to Mindfulness with Dr. Shauna Shapiro
We often get caught up in the lives and events of other people more than our own, and while it’s easy to blame smartphones, this tendency for distraction predates the internet. Humans are distracted by nature which is why mindful focus is so highly-revered and sought after. On this week’s podcast, psychologist, Shauna Shapiro, will help you get started with practice.
Brain Health Matters with Dr. Dale Bredesen
The FDA approved a new Alzheimer’s drug, Aduhelm, and it’s estimated to cost medicare $57 billion per year. In the wake of the approval, three FDA advisory panel members resigned and medical professionals, patients, and taxpayers are understably worried.
Meditation & Neurofeedback with Ariel Garten
You’re probably tried meditation apps, but have you tried measuring your brain wave states during your meditation practice? Meditation informed by real-time neurofeedback is now possible, and if you’re a numbers person, it might be just what you need to “see” your results and remain motivated to keep going. On this week’s show, we’ll explore brain tech and mind-body practices.
Exploring the Hathapradipika with Dr. Jim Mallinson
Most yoga teachers cite the Yoga Sutras as the original source of modern practices, but the Hathapradipika is a much more relevant text that is rarely read or referenced. Written by Svatmarama in the 1400s, this is one of the first writings that codified the practices of Hatha Yoga: yoga poses, breathing exercises, kriyas, and mudras. For anyone interested in the roots of modern practice, this is a fascinating historical exploration. Dr. James Mallinson leads the discussion.
Found this show recently and within a week it’s indirectly helping me heal. Listened to the ep about breathing with James Nestor, read his book, then started Wim Hof breathing. It’s helping me heal from lupus and Lucas now has a subscriber for life. I’m going thru the archive now to see what other resources will help me. 5 stars!
I LOVE EVERY EPISODE!
As a massage therapist and a user of the Yogabody trapeze for years, I’ve gotten familiar with Lucas’ face all over my social media. I’m very late to listening to podcasts “party” but recently started last month. Of course his face popped up (again) as a recommended listen & OMG! I have enjoyed every single episode! I’ve heard every guest say “Wow Lucas, that is a very good question!” Awesome host, very knowledgeable with a kick of charisma, lol! Thanks Lucas, you are making a difference. 🙌🏼
Do you want to live a better life?
This podcast is so awesome. Lucas brings the best of the best to help anyone with whatever you need to live a better, healthier and happier life. There is a huge range of topics that are all so edifying.
