Mission #38 Part 1

On Board: Dave Asprey
Mission: Hacking Your Body, Part One

The Co-Pilot:

This time on Stellar Life, we have a guest so special that we had to split the episode into two parts! Dave Asprey is the man behind the Bulletproof brand, which includes Bulletproof Coffee, Bulletproof Radio, and the New York Times bestselling book The Bulletproof Diet. He’s spent around 30 years and almost $1 million on biohacking his body. But Dave wasn’t always interested in health: he used to weigh a hundred pounds more than he does now, and got his start in the technology industry.

In this first part of the two-part series, we hear a lot about Dave’s background. He explains how (and why) he made the shift from tech into biohacking, and what he hopes to get out of providing all this information. We also have the pleasure of hearing his first-hand experience with some biohacking techniques, and he provides some valuable tips and insights into how to do your own biohacking.

The Mission Log:

  • [05:42] — Dave introduces himself and explains more about who he is and his experiences and credentials.
  • [06:33] — We learn more about Dave’s introduction to biohacking, which started around 30 years ago. He also mentions The Better Baby Book, then goes on to give his definition of the term “biohacking.”
  • [09:42] — Orion asks Dave what we can do with stem cell therapy. He reveals that he plans to live to be at least 180 years old. He goes into quite a bit of detail about the stem cell retrieval process, as well as the culturing process.
  • [11:30] — Dave explains more about what he wanted to do with stem cells in his own body (and what he’s already done with them). He’s gone so far as to have stem cells injected into his “boy parts,” to use his term.
  • [14:17] — Dave’s wife had a similar procedure done, which clearly had a very positive effect on her as well.
  • [14:50] — What are the three top lessons Dave learned from hacking his body?

Your Pre-Flight Checklist:

Do your own research into stem cell therapy to understand what it’s capable of. There have been huge breakthroughs; it’s not just about cloning sheep anymore.

Come up with one specific thing that you want to change about your body. Instead of trying to figure out whether you can do it, figure out how to do it.

Download the Bulletproof Diet Roadmap, print it, and stick it on your refrigerator. Try to become more conscious of choosing foods that it encourages.

O: Hi! Welcome to Stellar Life podcast. I’m your host, Orion, and today my guest is somebody that I was waiting for months and months on end in order to be able to speak with him. Man, it was worth the wait, he is brilliant and I like everything about him. His name is Dave Asprey, he is the founder of Bulletproof Executive, he is a Silicon Valley investor and technology entrepreneur who spent two decades and over $300,000 to hack his own biology. Dave lost 100 pounds without counting calories or excessive exercise, used techniques to upgrade his IQ and lowered his biological age while learning to sleep more efficiently in less time. Learning to do these seemingly impossible things transformed him into a better entrepreneur, a better husband and a better father. How amazing is that? He is the creator of the wildly popular Bulletproof Coffee. That coffee with butter that some of your friends are swearing by. He is the host of the radio show, the number one health podcast, Bulletproof Radio. Dave has millions and millions of listeners and he’s the author of New York Times bestselling book, The Bulletproof Diet which is one of my favorite books. I have two copies and I was actually at the opening party for the book that Dave held. That was a unique experience, that was the first time I met Mr. Dave Asprey, and then I saw him at a Brendon Burchard event, and then I saw him at the Bulletproof conference which is his conference which is incredible. This man is changing the world one technology at a time. Because the information is so important and so dense and because Dave is so amazing, I decided to do something really unique and special with this episode and I just split it into two. One is about hacking your brain and one is about hacking your body. This is part one about hacking your body. Dave and I spoke about stem cells, how you get stem cells from your own adipose tissue and bone marrow, where you can inject in your body and what it does for you. It was really interesting because of the Bulletproof conference, there was this stem cell doctor who showed us a video of an arthritic dog and the dog was a 12 year old dog, couldn’t walk up or down the stairs. You saw the video, you cringed, you felt so sorry for that dog. And then a few months later, couple of months later after they injected stem cells to the dog, the dog starts walking really well and then three months later the dog is jumping and that was extraordinary. There is so many new age technologies out there, so many new technologies that are not included in the normal medical world. There’s a lot of information and Dave and I talked about some of it here and some of it in part two. This man is fascinating and I encourage you to sit and listen, this was also a pretty entertaining episode as well. If you really enjoyed this episode, please review and share with your friends. I know that some of the information here can save someone’s life, so please share it with somebody else. Ladies, if you wanna join me on  facebook/groups/stellarlife, I would love to have you. If you wanna know more about the episodes, go to www.stellarlifepodcast.com and you could also find more information about me, if you wanna reach me or contact me personally, and now onto this incredible show. Hello Dave and welcome to Stellar Life podcast. How are you doing?

D: I’m doing well and I’m happy to be on.

O: I’m so happy to have you. I just love everything about you and everything that you do and how you help people. I find you to be a heartfelt leader and you’re on the cutting edge of technology and biohacking. Let’s start by sharing a little bit about who you are because there are few people in the world that still don’t know who you are. Let’s go into how do you define biohacking.

D: I’m Dave Asprey, I’m the founder of Bulletproof Coffee and I am a professional biohacker, probably the world’s first professional biohacker. I run the Bulletproof Radio Show we’ve got about 15 million downloads. I’m a New York Times Bestselling Author. I use to weigh 300 pounds and decided that I should hack my biology and I’ve spent almost two decades and almost a million dollars now creating every system in my body I possibly could. Bulletproof is where I do my human performance work. I run the 40 years of Zen neuroscience training center for executives in Seattle, Washington as well that’s like a little side project as my personal brain mechanics. I like to share all the stuff that no one told me when I was young, fat and tired all the time.
