I have a treat to share with you today: four of the world’s foremost biohacking experts getting vulnerable at the end of a long day and asking each other the questions that most people don’t even know they should be asking.

 

We have friend of the show Dr. Jack Kruse, a neurosurgeon, the CEO of Optimized Life, and our front lines against the onslaught of EMFs.

Then we have Luke Storey, also know as the Life Stylist and one of the most personable, intelligent podcast hosts and bio-hackers you'll come across.

And, last but not least, we have Matt Maruca, one of the world’s youngest biohackers, founder of Ra Optics, and a man on a mission to end chronic disease by addressing mitochondrial dysfunction.

 

So, basically, it’s four guys freaking out in a hotel room about all of the things going wrong in the world right now – and what you can do to protect yourself, or at the very least, minimize the damage if you live in a big city.

 

But this is only part one of this conversation. After you’re done, head over to Lukestorey.com/lifestylistpodcast to check out part two!
