#047: Do You Need a Living Autopsy?

September 29, 2014

In Episode #47, Jesse interviews Dr. Eric Braverman, best-selling author of books The Edge Effect and Younger You, and founder of the PATH Medical Center in New York. Dr. Braverman explains the importance of brain diagnostics for overall health and how performing “living autopsies” can help us age optimally.

We also learn how a protein called klotho can boost cognitive faculties at any age, and get a peek at how astronauts regulate their sleep-cycles.

    Your mic does not sound bad but Dr Braverman’s yes, I mean the sound is not good. So at 40 we are all damaged?
    I will do the test again.

    I had read this book a while back so I was pretty impressed to see you interview Dr. Eric Braverman. I take ALCAR, L-Tyrosine, and Glutamine regularly after reading his book. They are the basics and to some degree work better than a lot of the exotic nootropics available. Nicely done, keep the awesome podcasts coming! Do you guys have a donation button?

      Thanks John! Really appreciate it. We don’t have a donate button, but if you want to take a few minutes to give us a positive review on iTunes (link in the footer) or turning some friends on to the podcast, that’d be wildly appreciated. 🙂
