    #82: 🎙️ INTERVIEW | The Holistic Approach to Brain Health with Dr. Sabine Krofczik-Wilhelm

    🎙️ INTERVIEW | The Holistic Approach to Brain Health with Dr. Sabine Krofczik-Wilhelm
    In this episode, my guest is Dr. Sabine Krofczik-Wilhelm, the Head of the Neurodegenerative Disorders Pillar for PPD, part of Thermo Fisher, where she is responsible for the strategic and operational delivery of clinical trials in dementia. 
    Sabine is passionate about brain health and longevity, and is actively working on de-stigmatizing dementia.
    In our discussion, we explore a multifaceted approach to brain health, emphasizing its connection to overall well-being through physical, mental, social, and spiritual practices. 
    Sabine shares her personal journey with lifestyle interventions like fasting and the ketogenic diet, while also highlighting the cutting-edge research and therapies currently being explored for neurodegenerative disorders.
    She advocates for building cognitive reserve through lifelong learning and highlights the benefits of sleep, diet, and fasting on mental acuity. The importance of social bonds and community engagement is underscored in her discussion about maintaining cognitive health. 
    Sabine addresses the challenges posed by an aging population and the stigma surrounding dementia, advocating for increased awareness, acceptance, and proactive measures to prevent neurodegenerative diseases. 
    Additionally, she is enthusiastic about advances in technology such as health-monitoring devices, like CGMs and the Oura Ring, and the use of digital therapeutics in psychiatry.
    Key Takeaways:
    * Brain health is a holistic concept that encompasses physical, mental, social, and spiritual well-being.
    * Building cognitive reserve through lifelong learning is crucial for maintaining brain health.
    * Quality sleep and a healthy diet, including fasting, can optimize cognitive function and brain health.
    * Social connections and community involvement play a significant role in maintaining brain health. Raising awareness and support is crucial in destigmatizing dementia and improving the lives of those living with the disease.
    * There is a need for literacy, acceptance, and inclusion in communities to provide better support for individuals with dementia.
    * As the aging population increases, it is important to take action to prevent neurodegenerative disorders and find ways to integrate and include older adults in society.
    * Healthy living, sustainable housing, and connecting with nature are important for brain health.

    #81: READ ALOUD | 🥱 Why Do We Yawn?

    🥱 Did you know that yawning could be your brain's natural air conditioning system? 
    Studies show that the act of yawning introduces cooler air into our bodies, which can help reduce our brain temperature. 
    Yawning is not just a signal that we are feeling tired—it's a sophisticated physiological response to help keep our brains cool!

    #80: 🎙️ INTERVIEW | Your Rate of Aging with Michael Geer, Co-Founder of Humanity

    #80: 🎙️ INTERVIEW | Your Rate of Aging with Michael Geer, Co-Founder of Humanity

    Hi Friends,   
    It’s Nina’s Note #80!
    In honor of this milestone, I have something new for you today, a debut interview for the Nina’s Notes Podcast. 
    On this inaugural episode, I am thrilled to welcome Michael Geer, a visionary determined to redefine our approach to aging.
    🎙️ INTERVIEW | Your Rate of Aging with Michael Geer, Co-Founder of Humanity
    Michael Geer is the Co-Founder of Humanity.
    From a young age, Michael had an ambition to not just contribute to the world but to propel humanity forward. Initially this drive led him to study aerospace engineering at Georgia Tech University to chase that dream. While he didn’t end up in space (yet!). He is on a trajectory that promises to advance humanity nonetheless.
    Geer’s professional career is marked with significant accomplishments in the consumer internet industry. His work started in Moscow, creating and building badoo.com, one of the world’s largest dating sites. He grew it to 70 million users from 0. 
    After Badoo, he moved to AnchorFree, the leading free VPN provider. Under his guidance it went from a single-app company to a leading global protector of the internet, boasting 700 million users and generating 100s of millions in yearly subscription revenue.
    Now Michael has embarked on the mission of his life by co-founding Humanity with his close friend Peter Ward.
    Humanity aims to combat a vast problem: aging. Their mission is to extend the healthspan of humanity and give back 1 billion years to the world by the end of this decade.
    Backed by recent scientific breakthroughs in understanding aging, Humanity positions itself as a central distributor of anti-aging solutions. This isn't just about extending life but enhancing its quality. Humanity aims to be a bridge, delivering solutions to the public and creating a feedback loop with the scientific community. 
    In our conversation we discuss:
    * What led Michael to start Humanity Health
    * How Kristen Fortney, George Church and Robert Greene inspired Humanity
    * What parameters Humanity uses to calculate biological age
    * How they use routine blood test results to feed into their model for rate of aging
    * The difference between chronological age and biological age
    * How Humanity encourages their members to lower their biological age
    * Using all the data to generate feedback loops
    * Trends in Humanity’s data
    * What Michael has changed in his personal routine after starting Humanity

Relatability

It’s a testament to narrate for a lengthy amount of time and keep an audience engaged. Nina’s ability to not only dance from subject to subject in a way that’s fresh and unique but also make it so it feels like she’s talking directly at you the listener is something you learn only from years of experience. Don’t just take my word from it check it out yourself!
