Apr 18, 2022 | Season 3


We are so grateful to have Dr. Patrick Porter back on the podcast! Back in season 3, he shared how we can use frequency, sound & light to heal the body, along with excellent tips for optimizing brain health through biohacking & a meditation practice. This time he's back to take a deeper dive on fascinating topics such as heart, brain & gut coherence; heart rate variability testing & recovery tactics; the thriving brain vs surviving brain & the impacts of high cortisol; and how we can support optimal brain waves and neuroplasticity to increase consciousness.
