Our understanding of mental health has changed drastically over the past decade, and consequently, so has our treatment. Whereas doctors used to often simply prescribe a pill and treat the symptoms, now many doctors are diving deeper and fixing the cause.
Rather than approaching medicine from a reactive standpoint, many doctors are now approaching it from a proactive standpoint. They’re trying to give the body everything it needs to naturally perform at a high level and feel good all the time.
Throughout this quest for improved treatment methods, a new branch of science has emerged regarding the study of nootropics. According to Wikipedia, nootropics are “drugs, supplements, and other substances that may improve cognitive function, particularly executive functions, memory, creativity, or motivation, in healthy individuals.”
…and while nootropics are certainly going to work best on healthy individuals, many claim they’ve helped them cure depression, anxiety, ADHD, and all manner of other ailments. So, with this in mind, here’s some insight into this new field of nootropics, and how you can use them to heal and self-optimize your brain.
Let’s face it—getting great quality sleep is pretty important. Whether you’ve got a high endurance run the next day, or a powerlifting competition, or even just an average day at work, you want to wake up fully refreshed, energized, and ready to conquer the day.
Of course, sometimes life doesn’t allow this. In our ever-changing society, new inventions such as artificial lighting have thrown a massive monkey wrench into our 500 million year old sleep schedule. For eons, animals woke up when the sun rose, and went to sleep when it set.
Now however, this isn’t always the case. We have weird sleep schedules, with some of us trading Bitcoin into the wee hours of the night. Many of us can’t fall asleep for hours, despite the fact that it’s dark out. Here’s where “sleep hacking” comes in handy.
There’s a new and emerging branch of science called “bio-hacking,” which I find fascinating. The idea is to “hack” your biology to get a desired effect—in this case, better sleep. So with that in mind, here’s some of the top biohacks I use to get rock solid sleep every night, without failure.
I just had my cheat day today. I ate a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts for breakfast, which adds up to about 2400 calories. That’s more calories than most people eat in a single day, and I had it in one meal.
Yet, somehow, I’m still shredded at 8% bodyfat with a body that turns heads at the beach. How the hell do I do it? Am I on steroids, or maybe I just have that magical “good genetics” thing that people always use as an excuse to not workout?
The truth is that I have neither. The reason I’m able to eat like such a fat fuck and still maintain a shredded physique, is because I understand the biology and mechanics behind having cheat days. Despite meathead stereotypes, lifting is a science.
Here I’m going to share with you how I have a cheat day every single week, and completely pig out, without gaining an ounce of fat. If you’re trying to lose weight you may want to go easy on the cheat days, but if you’re under 16% bodyfat, then have at it.
If you haven’t seen the movie Limitless, it’s about a writer who’s a complete loser. He lives in a gross apartment, can’t seem to get anything written, and on top of it all doesn’t have a dime to his name.
Then, one day he bumps into an old friend…who turns out to be a pharmaceutical representative on the cutting edge of medicine. The writer (Bradley Cooper) complains about his terrible life, and his old friend feels a pang of pity for him—and gives him a new drug called NZT 48.
“You know how people only use 10% of their brains? Well this drug allows you to use 100% of your brain,” he says. At first the writer is skeptical, but the drug rep gives him a single pill, worth $800, as a free sample. After trying it, his mind opens up.
He can learn new languages in a matter of hours. He can predict conversations before they even happen. He writes his entire book in a few hours. He basically becomes a super genius. “So how do I get this pill, NZT 48?” you might ask. Well, I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t exist…but there’s something else, just like it, that does.
Every day I get asked questions about nootropics, particularly the right modafinil dosage. A lot of people say it’s 200mg, some say it’s 400mg, and some even say it’s more than that.
Yet, as with most things in bio-hacking and self-development, there is no “one size fits all” answer. Depending on your weight, tolerance, and a large number of other factors, your ideal modafinil dosage will change.
I’ve personally been taking modafinil for the past 6 years or so, and let me tell you—this stuff is not to be trifled with. It is 100% pure brain rocket fuel in a pill that will leave you wondering why in the FUCK you didn’t buy some before.
That being said, if you can learn to use modafinil responsibly (as I’ve discussed before on my blog), it will be one of the most powerful tools that you ever have in your bio-hacking arsenal.
“Do binaural beats work?” I remember asking myself, right before I clicked the buy button. Questions were circling my head, but I decided to take the plunge.
I didn’t really understand how they worked, I didn’t really get what effect they had on the brain, and I didn’t really expect them to do anything…
But the testimonials had been incredible, and several men had recommended that I try Life Flow out. So, I decided to give it a try and pop in the “Life Flow 10” track.
I felt my brain tingle, and my mind began to shift. My brain shifted into a gear I’d never even felt before, and for one hour, I felt the sheer fucking laser focus of a madman, hellbent on accomplishing his goals.
Modafinil vs Adderall—the nootropics match up of the century. For YEARS college students and entrepreneurs alike have been using adderall to stay alert and focused for hours on end.
But with the emergence of modafinil, a previously unknown drug prescribed for narcolepsy, it seems that the reigning champion may have to give up its title…for good.
I’ve personally had a prescription for both modafinil and adderall, and just so you know where I stand, I have to say that I’m pretty biased in favor of modafinil.
That’s not to say that adderall doesn’t have its benefits, because it does—but in my experience, modafinil is the overall best choice for focus, energy, and improved cognition. Here’s why.
Anxiety can absolutely destroy your life. Whether it’s mild, moderate, or god forbid, severe anxiety, it takes a massive toll.
Having anxiety makes it difficult to pick up girls, to build a social circle, to enjoy your life, and to be happy…so you want to eliminate it as soon as possible.
There’s a number of different routes you can take, from anti-depressants to lifestyle changes like working out and meditating, but one simple, effective, and almost instant cure is to take supplements that act on your neurotransmitters.
I’ve tried every single one of these supplements for anxiety, and I believe that they will work for 99% of you guys. That being said, some people respond better to certain ones.
You’ll ultimately have to experiment and try these out for yourself; but if you do so in conjunction with taking cold showers, meditating, and exercising regularly, you can expect to eliminate your anxiety to almost zero.
What’s up, guys. Recently I’ve been playing around with different “natural Viagra” recipes. I already know how to last 45 minutes in bed, so the next logical question is: how do I increase my ability to fuck multiple times, and stay hard?
Well, I’ve tried plenty of pharmaceutical drugs before, and I’m not gonna lie, they work pretty well. Both Viagra and Cialis are extremely effective at giving you harder erections and increasing your “rebound” ability. But what if you can’t afford to buy Viagra from sketchy offshore pharmacies that you don’t necessarily trust?
Or what if you just don’t want to keep putting pharmaceutical drugs into your system? What if you just want a natural Viagra? Well, if that’s you, you’re in luck, because I’ve recently fine tuned a formula that will keep your dick hard for hours on end.
This isn’t going to be a long, in depth article like most of my usual ones. Instead, I’m just going to focus on giving you the cold hard facts without any fluff.
A lot of successful guys out there hate it when guys like me spill the secrets that it takes to become successful. Why? Well, it’s simple. They don’t want the competition.
Every post I make about generating wealth, about how to get jacked, and about game…it’s all creating competition for the other guys. That’s right. That guy who has a 10 million dollar business? I’m creating more competition for him. That guy who’s pulling all of the girls? I’m creating more competition for him.
That guy who’s jacked as fuck? I’m sure as hell creating more competition for him. But, that’s what I do—I like to share the secrets to success, because I think that the world would be a better place if every man was successful.
