Stacking Biohacks: In Tune with Body and Mind – Rick Rubin : 585

For this episode of Bulletproof Radio, Dave talked with legendary music producer Rick Rubin at the famed Shangri-La Recording Studio in Malibu, California.

Rick coaxes creativity and musical magic from diverse artists across multiple genres, such as hip-hop, heavy metal, pop, country, rock & roll, alternative, and more. He’s known for his Zen-like demeanor, private nature and nearly four-decades-long influence on music.

His formula for success isn’t a formula at all. “We’re really at the mercy of the forces of the universe to control the process,” Rick says, “and we just have to be patient and be open and allow it to happen.”

He doesn’t have a formula for biohacking his way to a 130-pound weight loss, either, but being open to experimentation got him there. Take a listen to Rick’s journey to better health in which he reconsidered veganism, discovered ice baths as meditation, and embraced loving kindness.

There’s plenty more biohacking goodness covered, too, like intranasal red light, biophoto modulation, cerebral electrical stimulation, Carbogen, deuterium depleted water, and peptides. “I don’t need to understand the science of why a biohack works or doesn’t work,” Rick says. “I just want it to work.”
