It’s an amazing time to be alive because we are in a breakthrough period in self-healthcare. Humans have been investigating cell-based longevity technologies for at least 15 years, but there have only been major improvements in the last 5 years. Using an individual's own bone marrow seems to be the way forward since many of us didn’t save our own umbilical cords. The success of such technologies is dependent on using your own stem cells and not synthetic or animal based stem cells. Balancing our hormones and increasing our nutrition levels are vital for elongating our lives and increasing our health spans.

Could it be we’ve been taking our temperatures wrong all this time? Jason’s guest Dr. Wade Webster says while traditional mercury based thermometers are capable of reading our bodies correct core temperature, we would need to keep the thermometer continually inserted for ten minutes or more. His company Prima-Temp is creating options for capsulized internal thermometers which one day may be fueled by the human body itself. A notifier would be sent to a mobile device so the user will know exactly what their core temperature is. The benefits behind knowing our core temperatures are driving additional research, but today we know the brain synchronizes the cells in the body based on the temperature of our surroundings. Our exposure to light (heat) also benefits us by assisting us in fighting infections, dealing with infertility issues and helping us take medications at optimum times.

Since the 1970’s Americans have been experimenting with the next big diet craze. The allure of taking a pill to achieve better health is an idea that catapulted the supplement industry to a multi-billion dollar status. Our guest today, Ben Greenfield says “It’s all about finding a balance”. He shares his insights on easy to perform at-home blood tests, online concierge medicinal groups and wireless fitness devices. He is an Ironman athlete who believes the simple act of moving is the best fitness regimen the general public should start with and that there are ways to prepare popular nutrient-dense foods to make them more digestible.

Deciphering the human genome has made a huge impact to increasing our health and lifespans. Beginning in the 1950’s longevity has entered the engineering phase which brings us closer to regenerative medicine, growing organs and tissue in labs and even spray on skin. With new technologies evolving more rapidly now than in any time in the past we may soon see ourselves extending our current lifespan by 5 or even 10 years. Some say it may strain the earth’s natural resources but others contend longer, healthier lives may boost innovation and with it the economy.
