Why Smarter Not Harder? Like everything in life, that requires a story.
So here it goes...
The Buddha and the Guru were walking along the banks of Enlightenment River
In the middle of Enlightenment River sits Enlightenment Island.
...Of course, what else are you going to call it?
The Guru turns to the Buddha and says, "Hey Buddha! I've been studying levitation at levitation island for 30 years and I can tell you, with absolute confidence, that I can levitate over this river and reach enlightenment Island!"
The Buddha (smiling big with his bald head and big belly) looks at the guru and says, “Hey, Guru! Wow....30 years?! Really?! 30 years is a mighty long time. Why would I study Levitation at Levitation island for 30 years when the ferry to Enlightenment Island costs just one cent?”
One-cent solutions to $64,000 questions. That is what we're all about here on the Smarter Not Harder Podcast. We interview subject matter experts who will tackle these one-cent solutions including Karl Friston, Donald Hoffman, Anna Lembke, Adam Robinson, and Dominic D'Agostino.
One cent solutions to decision making; one cent solutions to consciousness; one cent solutions to health optimization; one cent solutions to performance; one cent solutions to (much more).
But you're probably wondering...who will be my royally High Council of hosts for this podcast?
It's appropriate to start with the guy who got us all together in the first place, Dr. Ted Achacoso.
Dr. Ted is the founding pioneer of Health Optimization Medicine and Practice, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, and one of two sponsors of this podcast. He's also the founder of Smarter Not Harder Inc, maker of Troscriptions precision dosed buccal troches, and our other sponsor. Dr. Ted is trained in Interventional Neuroradiology, Toxicology, and Pharmacology. He's also Board Certified in Anti-Aging and Nutritional Medicine. If we wrote out his entire resume, you'd be reading for hours so here are some highlights: he was previously a hedge fund manager, scientific adviser to the fund that started sustainable (impact) investing, and he continues to serve as the personal physician to many leaders around the world. If he told you their names, he might have to kill you.
Next up on our list of hosts is Jodi Duval. Aside from growing an amazing cactus and drinking long blacks with almond milk all around the world, Jodi is a talented naturopath known for compounding her own formulations in her clinic Revital Health in Perth, Australia.
Our third host is Dr. Scott Sherr. Dr. Scott serves as the COO of both Health Optimization Medicine and Practice as well as Smarter Not Harder, Inc. He's also one of the world's leading experts in Hyperbaric Oxygen Medicine and is a practicing Health Optimization Medicine physician.
Last but not least is Boomer Anderson. When he is not winning barbeque championships, Boomer is the CEO of Health Optimization Medicine and Practice as well as Smarter Not Harder, Inc. makers of Troscriptions. In his own Health Optimization Practice, Boomer works with entrepreneurs leveraging large swaths of data and health technology.
