This is a rebroadcast of an important episode of Bio Alchemy: The Daily Biohacking Podcast from earlier this year that I wanted to re-share with you all. An all-new episode is coming tomorrow. Taking a vow of silence: biohacking the mind and relationships by shutting my mouth. Taking a vow of silence is something that monks and religious figures us…
 
A while ago, I heard a quick online soundbite about how different the food we eat today is nutritionally, when compared to the food our grandparents ate. Although there were no sources, the soundbite suggested that if you ate an orange today, you’d need to eat eight of them to get the same nutrition as an orange your grandmother or grandfather ate.…
 
We’ve all heard about juicing for health. But let’s face it, most of the time the health claims around juicing are more often than not seriously inflated. But not in the case of the biohacking juice that I’m talking about in today’s episode. The topic of which, is beetroot juice. I’ve been taking a shot or two of beet juice almost every day for a w…
 
Have you ever heard about how you shouldn’t eat raw eggs as they may contain salmonella? Well, that whole health myth may not be as scary as you might think. As a biohacker, I’m always critical when I hear old wive’s tales, or seemingly hearsay about health. I mean, questioning this stuff is one of the fundamental basics of what I do here when crea…
 
And here we are: after 1.5 years of publishing episodes of Bio Alchemy: The Spiritual Biohacking Podcast, we’ve reached 100 episodes! This is a pretty big milestone for me. Although we would have reached the centenary of episodes much sooner id I’d continued to publish at the original pace I wanted to, unfortunately that’s not always the way it hap…
 
And we’re back! Yeah, yeah, I know my biohacking podcast has been away for a while, though I always knew it’d come back at the right time. Not to sound too much like a hippie, though the Universe always guides us towards the things that we should be doing, and after a bit of a long hiatus, I knew it was time to return. Today, I’m dropping two episo…
 
Let's face it; there's a ton of junk science and plain nonsense being peddled on the internet when it comes to health advice. Biohackers like myself are guilty of it, the medical establishment is guilty of it, and normal people getting caught up in health fads are guilty of it. In my opinion, one of the most vile and BS-filled fads going around tod…
 
Your body is a miraculous machine, capable of self-healing, removing toxicity, and taking care of itself to a level we all have trouble comprehending at times. And when it comes to detoxification, and removing damaged material from our bodies, there's likely no process more important than autophagy. Taken from the Ancient Greek word "autóphagos" wh…
 
Right now, most of are struggling with something we've all come into contact with before, that seems to be on a new level: boredom. Due to the global lockdowns that are currently in place, many of us are quarantined at home, not going to our jobs, not hanging out with friends, going out in public, or even seeing family. And that's given us a seriou…
 
Our comfort zone is the thing that stops us doing hard things, and being happy sitting around and doing nothing, when we know we have tasks that need conquering. But do you have any idea how to expand your comfort zone, to make hard things seem easier? I've spent the best part of a decade and a half on my human optimisation practice, trying to upgr…
 
I finally did it. After five or six years of wanting to take this leap, I've started a YouTube channel. FIND IT HERE: http://bit.ly/lta-youtube Today's episode is a short announcement, though one that's super important. Well, at least to me and my own ego. If you love what I create on this podcast, I hope you'll love the continuation fo my spiritua…
 
Although this isn't a typical biohacking episode, in the grand scheme of things, it's one of the most important things we could do as a species to biohack our health and wellness: get back to living in harmony with nature. Last year, I was lucky enough to spend three weeks on the trip of a lifetime with my good friend (and phenomenal photographer) …
 
I've never been a big fan of the news. For the past decade and a half of my life, I've had a practice in place where I don't watch, consume, to take part in the general world news conversation, which has always allowed me to achieve a certain level of additional positive headspace, creativity, and peace. However, since the whole coronavirus pandemi…
 
This is not a standard episode of the podcast. I'm going back to regular publishing, though I didn't want my first episode back to be just more of the same, considering what the world is going through right now with all this Coronavirus stuff. Over the last few weeks, I've been trying my best not to let it all get to me, rule my life, or throw me d…
 
I don't always attain glimpses of profound universal wisdom in my morning meditation. In fact, I don't most of the time. However, this morning I received what I would consider a transmission from the gods and goddesses that I wanted to share in the hope it made sense to some of you. I've been meditating for almost 15 years now, and it's not always …

Gwyneth Paltrow is arguably one of the most famous movie stars on the planet, however, she's not really seen on the screen much these days. Instead, a lot of energy is focused on her company Goop, which has turned into a $250 million information distribution and sales powerhouse. Recently it came to my attention that Paltrow and Goop have just rece…
 
There's no doubt that bluetooth earbuds (especially the white ones made by a very popular computer company) are very desirable right now. You only have to go into any gym or walk down any major suburban street to see someone with a set in their ears. But are they at all damaging to our health? There's been a lot of debate over the last few years ab…
 
Have you ever wanted to work less, but still earn the same amount of money? If you’re a human being, chances are you’ve thought that — we all have. Well the good news is, companies and governments are starting to agree. Recently, the world media exploded with the news that Finland’s new 34 year-old prime minister Sanna Marin spoke about transitioni…
 
Taking a vow of silence is something that monks and religious figures usually are seen doing, though I decided to take on the challenge by not speaking for 7 days. This isn't something I've ever seen a biohacker do or speak about, which made me all the more excited to take up the challenge, and share it with all of you. I was first introduced to th…
 
I said I'd be gone for a week, though I obviously have a terrible view on keeping time. Here we are six months later, and the podcast is only just coming back. And with that, hurrah!

Magnesium is probably not something you think about as a biohacking tool.
