Medicinal Mushrooms, Cold Therapy and Beyond: A Look into a BioHackers Paradise with Blake Bowman [Podcast Episode #56]


What the heck is BioHacking?


Blake Bowman, of explains that despite the fact that even though he identifies with the term “biohacking”, or is seen as a “biohacker”, what he really practices is health-optimization. 


Essentially this is taking sometimes unconventional steps; utilizing technology as well as natural resources from mother nature in order to optimize health. In fact, as Bowman explains, the BEST “biohackers” actually emulate nature, like getting in the ocean, grounding your body on the part with bare skin, getting in the sunlight, exercising daily, and eating whole foods that are local and seasonal.


The reality however is that most people don’t practice these health optimization strategies that our ancestors have been practicing for hundreds of thousands of years. Therefore, we need someone like Blake to show us how ands what we should be doing in order to improve our sleep, manage our stress, heal our body, and nourish our soul.
