Humanity has been chasing peak performance and consciousness since history was first recorded. What are the three approaches we can take to achieve peak performance? What are the top-down and bottom-up approaches to optimization? What allows us to tap into enlightenment? On this episode, Dr. Carlos Rivas talks about his work, and how we reach the pinnacle of the human experience.
You start to realize that as soon as you change your physical state, your consciousness shifts and that will shift your biochemistry. -Dr. Carlos Rivas
Takeaways from this Episode
- Health optimization medicine (the biochemical approach), flow state optimization (elevating consciousness to enhance your wellness) and finding purpose and meaning in life are the 3 components that drive your optimized self to your peak performance.
- Illness medicine is broken if left alone as it is. There is a lot more to health and medicine than represented in the sick care model, and people will continue to suffer if they don't recognize this.
- The spiritual enlightenment component makes itself more readily available when you’re optimized.
The three pillar approach is about intervening with a patient’s biochemistry as bio-harmoniously as possible to make that intervention helpful, not harmful. Ultimately this is about one goal: reaching the pinnacle of the human experience and identity, which is peak performance and consciousness. Optimization is essential for us physically, but it's also about finding your purpose in life and redirecting your optimized self in that direction. It's up to us to make the most of what we've been given.
