In addition to his clinical psychiatry practice, Dr. Rabin is currently conducting research on the epigenetic regulation of trauma responses and recovery to elucidate the mechanism of psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy and the neurobiology of belief.

What brands of blue light blockers do I recommend?
BluBlox is definitely a go-to.
The CEO Andy Mant on the show before where we got into a really deep dive on blue light. If you get any amount of blue light in your glasses, no matter if it’s 3%, 10%, it disrupts melatonin production. So Andy has created blue light blockers that hold up to the highest standards. And in fact, you can see he’s tested it versus other brands and that they always come out on top.
If you head over to blublox.com and plug in the code “DS15”, you’re going to get 15% off your order.
B Strong I’ve been fascinated by blood flow restriction training for a very long time. B Strong made great innovations on this technology.
I use it almost every day: high reps, low number of sets, a few exercises. In 20 minutes, I have a fantastic workout which is triggering an anabolic response.
If you want to get your B Strong blood flow restriction device, head on over to https://bstrong.training/ and use the code BOOMER, and you’re going to get yourself 10% off.
