Your brain – every brain – is a work in progress. It is ‘plastic.’ From the day we’re born to the day we die, it continuously revises and remodels, improving or slowly declining, as a function of how we use it.
– MICHAEL MERZENICH, Professor Emeritus Neuroscientist University of California
I think the sexiest thing on anybody is intelligence. I respect somebody who has a brain and wants to use it more than a pretty face and status.

“Ok so what you’re going to do is play a few impossible-to-win video games on this computer to really irritate yourself. Then we’re going to perform an FMRI scan on your brain to find out which parts of it are causing you to do all the things you told us you’d like to stop doing. Are you ready?”
Me: “Why are you injecting me with an unknown substance? And what’s with the electrodes?”
“This will go a lot quicker if you just trust us.”
Me: “How long did you say this would take again?”
Me: “Let’s do this.”
I had flown out to Newport Beach to spend three days with Dr. Amen at Amen Clinics to figure out what was wrong with me once and for good.
I mean for a guy who did 30 minutes of verbal affirmations every morning, exercised daily, worked hard, played hard, made lots of money, gave lots of money away, had waterfront penthouses on both coasts, went on missions trips to 3rd world countries, read books like it was my job, had mentors, mentored others, dated models, ate healthy, wore $400 jeans, had hair that looked like Paul Mitchell personally came to my house and styled it every day and did all the other stuff that’s supposed to lead to a happy life … I was miserable.
Who wears $400 jeans with a frown on their face??
“This doesn’t make any sense,” I’d think. “Just my jeans alone should make me joyful. They’re incredible. My butt literally sparkles when the sun hits it right.”
Plus I had a horrible memory.
AND … my pet goldfish regularly beat me at attention span contests.
“I must have brain damage,” I concluded. “I can’t let keep losing to this freaking fish every day.”
So here I was, once again spending thousands of dollars with yet another exotic world-renowned physician in my never-ending quest for that ever-elusive state of homeostasis.
So far that’s the most hyphenated words I’ve ever used in a sentence.
Inside Tip After Years On The Health & Swellness Journey: As a rule of thumb, if the doctor you’re working with takes insurance? They suck. Insurance doesn’t cover things that A) work B) are preventative or C) are good for you in any way shape or form.
I haven’t seen a health professional in ten years that takes insurance. Even my daughter’s pediatrician doesn’t take insurance. People that can truly help you are cash only.
After three days, I walked into Amen’s office for his official diagnosis and remedy.
“Well there’s good news and bad news. Which would you like first?” he asked.
“The good news,” I replied.
“The good news is … we can fix it.”
“Your brain damage.”
“I knew it.”
Apparently science has discovered that there’s only so much cocaine and ecstasy you can do when you’re young before it starts leaving holes in your brain.
Who knew? My dealer never told me that.
Let me cut this story short before I start typing things I’ll regret when I run for President.
The bottom line is this:
Whether you have brain damage or not, the healthier your brain is, the better you will be able to think. The better you are able to think, the more effective you will be in all aspects of life.
This world is run by wicked smart THINKERS in case you didn’t know.
We’re in a knowledge economy. Therefore, it logically follows that the more you know the more your personal economic situation grows. But it’s one thing to learn a bunch of facts; almost any brain can do that. You’ve got to be able to take those facts and recognize patterns, solve complex problems, remember things you’d rather not, apply the facts in a practical manner that helps humanity and do it all faster than at any time in human history.
“Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.”
– ALBERT EINSTEIN
A study by a group of neurosurgeons out of the University of Virginia showed that our brains start deteriorating by the age of 27! Literally your brain is physically shrinking right now as you read this! (note to self: consider rephrasing so it doesn’t sound like reading this particular blog post is making them dumber)
It will continue atrophying until you die. UNLESS …
… you do exactly what I’m about to tell you to do.
That’s right, I’m here to save your brain my friend. Can you believe it???
Here are 10 ways to hack your mental hardware to make you faster, smarter, sexier and wealthier. Some of them are cheap; some of them are $10,000. Do what you can and staple the rest to your vision board.
I really dislike the word hack btw. But I know you like it, and this is all about you as usual so …
Brain Hack #1: Get A Hypothalamic / Pituitary Test Done
I’m actually doing this right now. Look, I can prove it:
What is a hypothalamic and a pituitary? I have no idea of course. I’m an entrepreneur, not a brain scientist. All I need to know is what the test does. And one of the things the test does is measure the levels of a number of key neurotransmitters in your brain – chief among them being serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine.
It’s important to keep these three in balance because when they get out of balance? People get hurt. Don’t ask me how I know.
Here’s a chart to help you see the importance of this …
Get the test done through NeuroLab. You can find a practitioner here … http://www.sanescohealth.com/practitioner-look-up/. It’s a few hundred bucks. Or so.
You know it never ceases to amaze me the number of doctors and laymen who both prescribe and take medicines and supplements from A to Zoloft without bothering to find out what’s actually going on inside the body.
Like … why take calcium (which 48% of Americans do) if your calcium levels are already normal (or high)? Save your money. Google “hypercalcemia.” It’s a rare condition from high calcium levels – so rare that my wife has it. One of the causes is supplementation.
Why are so many doctors prescribing serotonin (/suicide/mass murder)-enhancing anti-depressants without testing to see if the patient is actually low in serotonin?
I mean I know. I’m just curious if you know.
That’s like bringing your car in to a mechanic and saying, “Uuhhhh, I dunno … it’s acting weird. I can just tell something’s wrong,” and being given a bottle of cheap oil without checking the oil levels because “it sounds to me like you’re out of oil.” Or not even going to the mechanic at all – just buying the oil yourself because your neighbor recommended it.
It’s not totally like that. But it’s something in that analogous vicinity.
Point being, there’s no need to guess anymore. There are tests for everything.
Brain Hack #2: Spect Imaging
This is what I had done at Amen Clinics. You’ll basically be getting FMRI pictures of your brain, a detailed analysis of brain activity in all your different lobes and cortexes, and a holistic program to improve brain health.
Admittedly, there are a lot of very smart doctors that think this is medical quackery. Personally I tend to believe the so-called quacks before mainstream medical doctors, but that’s just me. Maybe it’s because I’ve had so many negative experiences with the standard medical system, and I’ve come to understand how they think and operate. Anything outside of a one-trick pony’s bag of trick is going to both threaten their livelihood and cause them to scoff. Especially if that pony went to school for ten years and let his hard-earned medical diploma go to his head and close itself tightly around his mind. A majority of them are extraordinarily arrogant, generally closed-minded, self-centered, unfully informed and sometimes corrupt.
All I can tell you is that prior to going through the program I was the male equivalent of Lindsey Lohan. Now I’m really boring.
Oh well. “Better to be bored and out of prison” as they say.
This is worth watching:
Brain Hack #3: MRT (Magnetic Resonance Therapy)
This is some groundbreaking, cutting edge, high-level stuff right here.
MRT is to be considered if you have autism, Alzheimer’s, PTSD, brain damage, serious neurological disorder or are someone like me that likes to try everything just to see what happens.
It literally balances your brain waves.
This is the place to go … http://www.braintreatmentcenter.com/
Not cheap. Probably vision board material.
Brain Hack #4: Relox Therapy
I’m doing this in a few months. It’s basically an oxygen/mineral “push” IV that wakes up all the sleepy cells in your brain.
I’ve had a couple friends do it, and they absolutely rave about it. And they don’t have brain damage. They just want better brains.
One of my friends who was color-blind his whole life had it done. When he walked out of the Relox office he saw a double rainbow in full color for the first time. He fell to his knees and wept.
Ok the rainbow story isn’t true. But I wish it were because it’s incredible. Maybe I should switch to novels.
This is the only doctor who does it … http://www.drrind.com/therapies/brain-injury
The before and after brain pics speak for themselves.
Brain Hack #5: A Hippocampus Transplant
I’m messing with you, dude. There is no such thing as a hippocampus transplant. It just popped into my head as a possibility for another dimension, and I generally feel compelled to write everything that comes into my head.
Look let’s just skip #5. I don’t have a good feeling about it.
Brain Hack #6: Solid Sleep
I can think of no better way to improve the overall health of your brain besides getting 7 – 9 hours solid sleep on the regular. This is time for your brain to repair, recharge, reorganize and even re-build. It does it all on it’s own. Your only job is to lay still and know how to sleep.
So how do you know if your sleep was solid or not? Here’s the test I use …
I look at myself in the mirror while I’m brushing my teeth.
If I have less wrinkles around my eyes than I did the night before … mission accomplished.
I’ll be 40 in a few months and I have the facial skin of a toddler. I get carded for Rated R movies. It’s embarrassing.
Don’t believe me?
Here’s me in a butterfly sweater as a toddler …
This is me as a 19 year old apparently trying out for a spot in the local Grease musical …
And this is me and my 27 year-old wife just about a month ago …
Notice anything strange? Besides the Grease tryout pic I included for no reason in particular besides to offer hope for all mothers with wayward sons?
I have fewer wrinkles now than I did as a toddler!
And this, of course, is partially due to me having been a colic toddler. I didn’t sleep well because no one gave me amazing sleep tips like this back then.
“Preston, why did you mention your wife’s age? That’s really weird.”
I mentioned it as further proof. No one my age would marry me because they didn’t believe I was really my age! Even my wife feels like she’s robbing the cradle.
Sleep is my beauty secret. (Did you think it was called “beauty sleep” for no reason?)
It’s also my bada$$ brain secret.
And even if you don’t have the wrinkles you’ll be able to feel your lack of solid sleep in your eyes by noon at least. Hence the term “tired eyes.” Sleep is directly connected with your eyes. I can look at someone’s eyes and tell if they sleep well in general or not.
Ever have someone tell you, “you look tired,” even though you don’t feel tired, and then you feel like head-butting them even though you’ve never done that?
You didn’t get enough sleep.
You better get some sleep and practice that head-butt before you bust it out on someone!
Google “lack of sleep brain” and prepare to be horrified if you’re currently sleep deprived. Sleep deprivation has been shown to kill up to 25% of your brain cells. That’s like … almost all of them.
“You would be better off shooting HEROIN to get to sleep rather than be sleep deprived.”
– Rob G., PhD, PhD, PhD, PhD*, my personal health advisor
*yes, he has FOUR PhD’s. How many does your nutritionist have?
And if you sleep less than 7 – 9 hours? … you ARE sleep deprived; don’t let anyone tell you different. Yes, each person’s body is unique and requires it’s own individual time for sleep. And that unique time is between 7 – 9 hours just like the rest of us.
I didn’t just make this up. The National Sleep Foundation did.
Studies I’ve read on twitter show that one out of every six employees falls asleep at work. And you know what happens when that happens …
There are some people who will say you can “hack” your way to a 4-5 hour sleep schedule and be fine (literally that word hack is like nails on a chalkboard to me … I hope you know how much I’m sacrificing for you right now). I say the same thing to these people as I do to everyone else who says stupid stuff to sound cool and make money …
“Show me the study.”
And yes, I scream it like Jerry McGuire.
“SHOOOWWWWW MEEEEEE THE STUDYYYYYYYYY!”
Because I can show you one that reports basketball players improving their speed, accuracy, and endurance by increasing their sleep from 6-9 hours up to TEN.
It’s true you only need a certain amount of stage 4 and 5 deep sleep, but no gadget on earth is going to produce an adequate amount for you in 4-5 hours. Your body goes through 90-120 minute cycles of sleep starting at stage 1 (light) to stage 5 (REM) and back again, and there’s no “hacking” that.
“Early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise,” was true in the 18th century for Benjamin Franklin, and it’s still true now. Are you seriously going to argue with Benjamin Freakin Franklin??? He invented the lightning bolt!!! Or something involving a kite. Or both. I forget. I just wouldn’t mess with him that’s all I’m saying. He’s probably still alive, that’s how smart he was.
If you have a hard time sleeping simply take a 20-30 minute hot bath (as hot as you can stand it) with these …
Take Power Off (the best sleep supplement on earth without question) …
Wear this if your room isn’t the pitchest of blacks … http://www.tempurpedic.com/tempur-travel-collection/tempur-pedic-sleepmask.asp
Read this for more super sneaky sleep secrets … http://wakewealthy.com/how-to-get-a-good-night-sleep/
And most importantly, make sure that sometime that day before bed you have implemented …
Brain Hack #7: High Intensity Exercise
Nothing lifts me out of a bad mood better than a hard workout on my treadmill. It never fails. Exercise is nothing short of a miracle.
Do you think you’re better than Cher?
I certainly hope not. Nobody’s better than Cher. At anything.
High intensity exercise is any activity that gets your heart beating over approximately 1.7 billion beats per second (more or less) and causes you to sweat what appears to be a dangerous amount of fluid from your body. Not dangerous for you, dangerous for everyone near you. Like one good clue you’re doing it right is you start noticing yellow “CAUTION: Wet Floor” signs around you pretty regularly.
It’s something that should make you slightly nervous to go do.
It should be something about which you are seriously seriously tempted to say, “eh … I’ll do it tomorrow … or never,” because it’s borderline terrifying to your inner wussbag. There shouldn’t be a single time where this temptation doesn’t present itself. And it doesn’t come alone; it brings its friend, Irrationalization:
“Man, I really should take my cat to get flossed right now instead. I keep forgetting to do that.”
“You know who I haven’t visited enough lately? My in-laws. I can’t exercise because I need to go nurture that relationship.”
“I know I need to get to the gym, but I think right now is the time I’m supposed to go base jumping. Yep … sure is. Darn it, I really wanted to hit the gym for that Class ‘O Death so bad too. Oh well … tomorrow for sure.”
That’s right … base-jumping should be a mild fear in comparison. That’s how bad the sissy side of you is mortified by the mere thought of high intensity exercise.
Fitness – if it came in a bottle, everybody would have a great body.
See? I could rest my case right there
Cher again. In your face.
You know you’re in the middle of high intensity exercise when the thought, “You know what? I think I actually could be a Navy Seal!” occurs to you repeatedly. And you half way believe it.
And you know you’ve finished high intensity exercise because you feel like you’ve finally found something to replace your meth habit with. You should feel EUPHORIC.
High intensity exercise floods your brain with all the essential feel-good neurotransmitters and increases cerebral blood flow and oxygen. It turns your brain on. Like … ON on.
So a good analogy would be you sitting around with your friends when you were young and saying, “Soooo should we got out tonight?” And someone else would say, “Out? Or OUT out?” Out was a couple drinks at a bar. OUT out was a couple drinks at a bar, a couple more at another bar, 9 more at a club, and a blackout at a random person’s after-party two counties over. You wake up in the bushes somewhere, and you don’t know much, but one thing you know for certain … your car definitely got towed.
That was actually another highly questionable analogy.
If you have ADD, ADHD, LMNOP, depression, or any sort of psychotic disorder you should religiously do 45 minutes of high cardio exercise 6 days a week. And I didn’t just make this up. One of the world’s leading brain doctors personally told me this.
I took his advice and can attest to its validity. I used to be severely depressed and borderline … well … you saw the picture in the leather jacket. There was no shirt underneath it! That was in Ohio. It was 4 degrees outside.
So what are some examples of high intensity exercises? I don’t have time to tell you right now unfortunately. Maybe in another post.
Just picture your Paleolithic ancestor who was healthier than you running at warp speed after a zebra with a spear in each hand for half the day.
Next, picture him killing the zebra, carrying its dead body on his shoulders 22 miles back to the tribe, skinning it, cooking it, eating it, dancing around the fire for a while, and then making mad passionate love to like twenty of his wives.
Try to find something that will give you that same effect. Get creative. Maybe actually buy a zebra. Or rent one. Don’t do the multiple women thing; they don’t like it.
Here’s some things that don’t qualify:
– fast walking
– moon walking
– body building to the point where you can’t not look at yourself in every mirror and window you pass
– anything involving a Frisbee
– any cardio machine set to a level where you can read a magazine and not fall violently
– roller blading (do people still do that?)
– anything in this video:
You get the picture.
The important thing is to get your heart rate going to the point of it feeling like a mild heart attack is probably happening, but then it doesn’t, and it all turns out for the best in the end. Think “bootcamps.” Use your imagination. And common sense.
Fine, I’ll tell you exactly what I recommend.
In my next blog post.
Brain Hack #8: Strain Your Brain
Scientists have found that you can actually develop – grow – your brain just like a muscle.
The three most effective ways to do this are
- Learn new things (read books, study, listen to lectures, etc)
- Play brain games
- Listen to Eminem records and really soak in the lyrics
Learn new things … this should go without saying.
Read all different types of books: history, biographies, instructional, scientific, etc. The harder it is to read the more your brain is straining … and gaining. There is almost never a time where I’m not in the middle of at least seven books. Sometimes more. That may sound crazy, but I’m in it to win it man. Crawl if you want; I’m in full sprint.
“A mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge.”
― George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones
I use www.lumosity.com for brain games. I play them 15 minutes every day of the week as part of my daily routine. It’s backed by science, and your games are constantly being changed and customized based on your performance in order to keep you on a forward trajectory.
When I first started playing Lumosity my brain powers were ranked in their system as being in the 50th percentile based on their user stats. Three months later I was in the 95th percentile. I can now read a whole book cover to cover without even opening it in less than an hour. Any book.
If you can’t afford Lumosity right now, I suggest playing the Dual-N Back game for free. You can download it here … http://brainworkshop.sourceforge.net/ It’s really hard (hence the “strain” in Strain Your Brain), but don’t give up. Even if you’re failing horribly it’s working.
Don’t do #3. I changed my mind.
Brain Hack #9: Drink Organic Coffee Like It’s Going Out Of Style (It Isn’t)
“If its benefits continue to mount, coffee may come to be viewed as a health food.”
LONA SANDON, M.Ed., R.D., L.D., Assistant Professor in the Department of Clinical Nutrition, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center
Even if you don’t like coffee, drink at least one cup a day. It is SO good for your brain there’s almost no way to overstate it.
It’s an incredible antioxidant and has been clinically shown to both increase brain health and protect from disease in an overwhelming number of studies. Anyone telling you different is either trying to sell you something or has bought something from someone who was trying to sell them something.
A very good friend of mine while sitting on the Life Extension scientific advisory board oversaw a study on the effects of coffee on the brain. The verdict? DRINK COFFEE. They had their subjects drinking up to ten cups a day with no negative effect.
A Harvard study in 2011 showed women who drank 4 or more cups per day had a 20% less chance of depression.
Another study with over 200,000 people revealed that people who drank 4 or more cups had a 53% less chance of committing suicide.
“Coffee drinkers seem to do everything that seems to put them at risk for depression and suicide, but they are highly protected.”
– ICHIRO KAWACHI, MB.ChB., Ph.D. <— these letters don’t mean anything to me, but I know you they make you feel better so …
All the bad stuff you’ve heard or experienced – jitters, crashes, upset stomach, etc. – is not from caffeine. It’s from drinking what I call Mere Mortal Mocha.
I know … you don’t drink mocha. But it sounds better than Mere Mortal Coffee so let’s just run with it.
This would include Starbucks, whatever they give you at work, anything from a grocery store, almost everything at every brick-and-mortar retail store on earth, and most likely whatever you have at home currently.
All those side effects aren’t from caffeine; they’re from the toxins and pesticides that are included in your Mere Mortal Mocha.
Listen, if you drink a cup of Folgers and expect that to be the best part of waking up? You deserve the inevitable outcome.
“What do you mean I deserve it, Preston? How was I supposed to know?”
Because everyone on earth should know intuitively that anything cheap or mainstream is wrong! They should teach this starting in Kindergarten. I just had a baby 4 weeks ago, and she already knows better. You couldn’t pay her to drink something normal.
Granted I didn’t know this stuff about coffee myself until about 3 months ago, but still. Wake up, America.
Wake up to pure organic coffee.
And no, coffee doesn’t dehydrate you or your brain. Yes, it’s a mild diuretic, but guess what’s in your coffee … WATER. You’re peeing out your coffee. Whoopdy doo. If I didn’t drink a gallon of water a day that might concern me.
BTW … when popular belief tells me something is bad for people, my knee-jerk reaction is to think, “yeah … for regular (disease-ridden) people. That’s not me.” My other knee thinks it’s a flat out lie.
So far my knees have been steering me right.
Put butter in your coffee (the new fad) if you want to die faster. Google “betacellulin cancer” if you don’t believe me. If you want to argue with me about this in a comment below I’ll be happy to crush you with the irrefutable science on the subject. Or my virtual assistant in India who comments for me will crush you. Someone will crush you, let’s just put it that way.
Brain Hack #10: Neuro-Supplementation
1st Rule of Supplementation: Very rarely buy any supplement from a retail brick-and-mortar store. Most cheap supplements are cheap for a reason; They’ve been found to not contain what they say they contain, and what they do contain is very often contaminated.
When in doubt use these brands: Pure Encapsulations, Integrative Therapeutics, Allergy Research or Designs For Health.
Based on the results of Brain Hack #1, you will want to supplement accordingly. The physician who ordered the test for you should be able to tell you what to take in order to balance things out.
And based off Preston-Says-So, you will want to supplement as follows:
– Power On (www.poweronpoweroff.com)
I don’t know why people keep calling Provigil (Modafinil) a “smart drug.” I’ve tried it; it’s stupid. ADDERALL is a smart drug. It’ll destroy you of course, but not before you become Einstein on speed for a little while.
The closest thing I know of to an Adderall-like supplement is Power On. It doesn’t give you the rush of the amphetamine that Adderall is, but it does give you a very similar and palpable focus and alertness.
If your Brain Hack #1 showed a dopamine deficiency then you definitely need to take this. Or if you have symptoms of A.D.D., definitely take it. Or if you just love dopamine … take it
– Prevagen (https://www.prevagen.com/
“To be a liar, you’ve got to have a great memory, and I don’t have a memory.”
– OZZY OZBOURNE
I have a really bad memory. Like … I have to keep reminding myself what the topic of this article is every other paragraph or so. But that’s only because I forgot to take Prevagen this morning.
Prevagen is THE BOMB. It’s made from a substance extracted from jellyfish.
Frankly, I don’t how you could possibly refuse the gift of memory enhancement from a jellyfish. Everything is here on earth for a reason. Previously we thought the jellyfish’s purpose was to scare people out of the ocean in order to protect us from sharks. I thought that anyway. Now we know that they’re here to both sting us for random providential punishments AND help us remember things.
Ever since I started taking it I can actually recall specific facts about books I read. Pre-Prevagen I would just read a book and not remember a thing about it. I’d just know all the info was in my subconscious somewhere having mind-sex with previously stored info and giving birth to grand epiphanies that show up on my computer screen when I type, never ceasing to surprise even me when I see what I didn’t know I knew.
Now I remember actual facts.
For instance … the war of 1812? It happened in 1812! I didn’t even have to Google it. I don’t know how all this is useful yet, but I’m sure I’ll find out.
I still can’t remember anyone’s name until about the 11th time I meet them though. But that may be an entirely different issue. I’ll tell you one person’s name I’ll never forget …
… that’s right …
Who needs Prevagen?
You do. Unless you have a photographic memory (which some friends of mine do), it could always be better.
– Neurolink (http://store.amenclinics.com/neurolink)
This is sort of a “catch all” in case you can’t afford Brain Hack #1. It increases dopamine, serotonin, and gaba. I’ve been taking it for years. To really supercharge the Gaba take one Lentra with it (http://www.sanescohealth.com/lentra/). I’ve been told Gaba supplements won’t even upload at all without this, but I need to confirm that statement with my personal health ninja to be sure.
– Green & White Tea Max [pills] (http://www.pastoreformulations.com/product_p/003.htm)
Studies have shown that a cup of green tea is good for your brain. It improves memory, overall cognition, and longevity.
Why not 24 cups then? “More is more,” that’s what I always say and regret 6 times out of 10 but this isn’t one of those times.
Green & White Tea Max is the equivalent of 24 cups of green tea and 6 cups of white tea in one capsule.
I look at it like this … for every one cup of tea I drink, that’s one less cup of coffee I can drink. Forget that. I’d rather take one Green & White Tea Max pill and drink 24 cups of coffee. : )
This is the best and purest fish oil on the planet.
Your brain is BEGGING for fish oil. Don’t believe the hype in the mainstream news saying different. That’s all propaganda to keep you sick and coming in to their doctor’s offices to buy their drugs.
Read this so I don’t have to explain it … http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2014/02/09/fish-oil-brain-health.aspx
Hold up … you DO know you don’t have to get sick, right???
I remember when I used to catch 2-3 colds and one round of the flu each year. In my mind that was perfectly normal.
It was perfectly normal, and perfectly insane.
Now I haven’t been sick in … forever. My secret? I eat food that’s good for me, and I don’t eat contaminated or genetically modified foods that make people sick. It’s not rocket science.
I don’t get vaccinations and I never go to the doctor’s office. Not even for check ups.
Why not for check ups?
Because I check my SELF up. And I know I’m healthier and wiser than the doctor. I don’t need anyone’s finger up my butt once a year to know I don’t have cancer. Screw cancer. Cancer doesn’t exist to me. It doesn’t need to for you or anyone else either. Cancer is a product you’re currently being SOLD.
Don’t believe me?
Explain the SUPER-surge in cancer over the past few decades.
That’s weird. Almost every chart of all the most horrible things in life looks exactly like this.
The War On Poverty (Johnson)
The War On Drugs (Nixon again)
Whenever you hear a president declare a “war” on an inanimate object or abstract concept? Prepare to get MORE of it. Every time.
I have a friend who got treated in Mexico by a doctor who is curing people with stage 4 cancer. The FDA knows about it. They told him they would approve his therapy in the U.S. with one contingency: he had to make it mandatory to keep receiving chemotherapy treatments along with it. He refused.
There is no war on cancer. Cancer is a multi-billion dollar industry. The war is on YOU.
Unplug and WAKE. UP.
– Ciltep (http://www.naturalstacks.com/products/ciltep)
This is the best natural “smart drug” I’ve found so far.
Some people literally can’t take it because it’s so intense. I gave it to both my parents and they may as well have dropped a sheet of acid for all they could tell.
For me it just keeps me WIDE-awake all day long. Even wider than I am without it which is super wide. I basically look like a saucer-eyed owl when I take this. Like if I was an actual owl and I was in a flock of owls, all the owls would be like “dude you have really big eyes.” I actually get hit on by female owls when I go hunting. They perch on my shoulder. It’s weird and hard to aim when they do it.
I used to take Ciltep every day, but now my brain is so awesome I just take it on days where I slept anything less than 7.5 hours the night before.
“Aw MAN! 7.3 hours??? Ciltep it is …”
btw … If you are a healthy human with a truly healthy lifestyle (mind/body/spirit/etc.), you shouldn’t need smart drugs. You should just be smart. Don’t always be looking for the shortcuts and “hacks.” (DANG IT I hate the word hack. So lame.) Stick to the fundamentals.
Alright, quick word count … 5,064 words. Wow. This article is officially over.
Oh, the Paleo Diet is what your brain is begging for btw. Details on that here … http://wakewealthy.com/the-health-rabbit-hole-part-3-let-me-teach-you-how-to-eat/.
