Today’s Audio MASTERCLASS: A Superhuman Brain Masterclass with Dr. Isaac Jones
[01:34] – Dr. Isaac shares something interesting about himself that most people don’t know.
[04:31] – Dr. Isaac is the author of the book Superhuman Entrepreneur – High Performance Evolved – what got him into this in the first place?
- He was brought to a doctor who focused on human potential and helping people evolve their thinking, their physiology, and their way of being. That visit enabled him to transform his health and to overcome AD/HD and Dyslexia.
- It also inspired him to move to the US and become a doctor.
[09:05] – The most important asset an entrepreneur has is their brain. Why is that?
- Your brain is only 3-5% percent of your body, but it burns 20-30% of the calories in your body.
- What’s beautiful about your brain is that you can change it. If you have healthy neuroplasticity, you can rewire your brain for high performance. You can upgrade and optimize your brain to enable you to become more productive and be able to get more done in less time.
- A level of superhuman brain that people can access through the 3-step methodology:
- The first step is uncovering what is inhibiting your brain from upgrading.
- Next step is the process of upgrading the brain.
- Third step is next level performance
[12:23] – What are the biggest issues that prevent entrepreneurs from upgrading their brain function?
- Entrepreneurs have different brains than the average individuals. They push themselves a little harder everyday.
- The language of the brain is repetition.
- There’s an evolved process of accessing the superhuman brain, both through physiological and psychological aspects.
- The top 3 things in an entrepreneur’s brain:
- First, there’s an elevation of toxicity from computers, wifi, Bluetooth, the environment, etc.
- Second is deficiencies like neurotransmitter deficiencies, and micronutrient deficiencies. The micronutrients that neurotransmitters need in order to get produced are deficient because the vitamins are deficient. You need the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, and fatty acids. The brain is, by weight, 70% fat when you take out the water.
- Third is stress. It crushes the brain.
[17:47] – I know you have a “Superhuman Brain Methodology” of 1. Discover 2. Upgrade and 3. Next Level Performance. What is “Discover” all about?
- Ask yourself the question “Is my brain functioning optimally?”
- If your brain has fatigue, brain fog, or if you’re not remembering properly, all of that is a way to discover that your brain is not functioning optimally.
- The advanced way to discover what’s going on with your brain is to look at advanced lab tests.
[25:14] – What is Upgrade all about?
- Everyone needs to upgrade their brain because we live in a day and age where neurological conditions are skyrocketing.
- There are supplements that are essential to help upgrade the brain.
- B- vitamins will help to produce neurotransmitters.
[32:01] – Dr. Jones has a free training called Superhuman Brain Masterclass. It goes through these 3 steps in more detail, including around 30 expert interviews with BioHackers, neuroscientists, researches and the world’s leading brain physicians. He put this together because:
- The brain is the number one asset entrepreneurs have.
- The diseases and disorders of the 21st century will dissipate, and the prevention mechanisms that are put in place will help you to live a lot longer on this earth – but it’s not about length of life, it’s about quality of life.
[36:34] – Dr. Jones’ parting piece of guidance
- When someone is dealing with a large level of stress, brain disease and disorder start to climb like crazy.
- Live your life in a state of meditation. If you can’t get to a place where you can meditate, calm your brain down and focus on things that bring joy, happiness, and excitement to your life.
John Lee Dumas: What's shaking, Fire Nation? JLD here with an amazing audio masterclass with a dear friend of mine, Dr. Isaac Jones. We're going to be delivering a Superhuman Brain Masterclass for you today. And I'm telling you, if you care about your health and your wellness, you are not going to want to miss this episode. So, Dr. Isaac Jones, who is he? Well, he's been coined "The Doctor of the Future" by the founder of WebMD and he's upgraded the health, energy, and brain function of the world's leading executives and entrepreneurs, including myself, through live full immersion retreats and one-on-one concierge programs.
He is also the international number one best-selling author of the new book "Superhuman Entrepreneur: High Performance Evolved". Check him out at SuperhumanEntrepreneur.com. So, we're going to dive into an amazing audio masterclass when we get back from thanking our sponsor.
Isaac, say, "What's up?" to Fire Nation and share something interesting about yourself that most people don't know.
Dr. Isaac Jones: What up, Fire Nation? I'm so excited to be here, brother. Thank you so much. Well, you know, when I was thinking about this question, the first thing that came to my mind was that I was in special needs to take tests. I was diagnosed with ADHD, dyslexia. And what a lot of people don't know is that just three years after me being on medications, being in special needs, having ADHD and dyslexia, I was picked by my dean to get on the national dean's list, which is the only student in the school to be able to be picked for that, which is a huge honor. And there's only a few thousand people in all of America that get on that list, so I felt super honored to be able to do that.
And it just kind of highlights the transformation that I had from brain fog to high performance that we're going to be talking about today.
John Lee Dumas: Well, thank you for sharing that. Because I've known you for years now, and I actually never knew that about you. So, I think that's really cool of you to share that, super vulnerable. And Fire Nation, just something to really think about as we go through this audio masterclass today. Because Dr. Isaac Jones, myself, everybody who you look at and are seeing what they're doing either online or just in life itself, we've all been on a journey. We all have this journey.
And I don't care how successful you are financially in your business, how much your peers may look up to you, whatever it might be. If you don't have your health and wellness dialed in and squared away, then you're not really going to be able to achieve a full life contentment. I mean, I've experienced it. So many people who I'm close and friends with have experienced it as well. And when I had Dr. Isaac Jones on the show a couple years ago, I mean, number one, you, Fire Nation, gave incredible feedback on just the awesome content that he shared. It actually inspired him with the feedback that he got to launch his own podcast, which we'll be talking about. And he just delivers value to the world.
By the time you hear this episode actually, I'll have hosted Dr. Isaac Jones down here in Puerto Rico because he's throwing an awesome event down here, which we'll talk a little bit about as well. But what is this audio masterclass all about today? It's about superhuman brain. That's what we're going to be talking about, the Superhuman Brain Masterclass. You're going to be going through some incredible things that you, Fire Nation, need to know. This isn't like a should know or nice to know. This is stuff you need to know as a human being. So, the Superhuman Brain Masterclass is coming at you live.
And Dr. Isaac Jones, I wish this interview could be three hours long, so I don't want to waste any time. I want to dive in, because you're the author of the book, "Superhuman Entrepreneur" and the tagline for that is, "High performance evolved", which I love. So, what got you into this whole topic and area in the first place?
Dr. Isaac Jones: You know, I was this ambitious visionary as a young kid that wanted to go out there and – you know, when I was in grade eight, I remember writing a letter to my future self. And I said, "By the age of 23" – or however old I was – I said, "I want to be the CEO of Nike Canada." And I've got this awesome office in the top of a skyscraper in Toronto, Canada. And of course, walking into my doctor's office after getting diagnosed with dyslexia and ADHD, I started questioning. Like, "What could I actually accomplish?"
And really being on different medications and essentially needing to be in special needs to take tests, it started to – I started to question. Like, "Man, am I capable of being and doing a lot of really great things in the world?" And it wasn't until my mom brought me to this doctor who practices the way that I practice, which is focused on the human potential. Medicine that's focused on really helping people evolve their thinking, and their physiology, and their way of being that enabled me to transform my health, overcome ADHD, overcome dyslexia, and really upgrade my brain to this really high-productive, almost kind of like Bradley Cooper "Limitless" type kid. Honestly.
And it was like this light that was turned on. Just like in the movie you saw when he took the nootropic and his brain just came to life, that's what I felt like. I was kind of in the dark. And then all of a sudden, I could see the light. And so many humans listening right now, they have that capability within them. They have that next level of brain performance, of productivity, of energy that's inside of them. But they're just numb to the dimming of the light in their life. And when that light came back on, it was just like, "Man, I can change the world. I can go out and transform people's lives."
And it inspired me to go to the U.S. and become a doctor, go to the top health and wellness university. And then not just stop there, but get on the national dean's list, which is just crazy to think about when you look back to being in special needs to then getting on the national dean's list. Getting straight A's in classes and then just getting into this wellness space and becoming one of the top doctors in the world. And now, I'm educating and coaching thousands of doctors and working with leading executives and entrepreneurs around the world in the UK and Australia, in Japan – I just got back from Tokyo last week – and also across America and Canada.
John Lee Dumas: And soon to be Puerto Rico.
Dr. Isaac Jones: And Puerto Rico. Exactly. I can't wait.
John Lee Dumas: And, Fire Nation, this is exactly why I wanted to bring Dr. Isaac Jones back on. Because everything he's talking about and everything he's going to be sharing he's done with me and for me. I mean, this is somebody who I was working with. And I was able to take the tests I needed to take and get the feedback from him on these things and realize, "Hey, where am I deficient? Like, where are things that aren't allowing my brain to really function at that optimal level? Where am I coming up short in any number of things?" And I mean, that's the thing is that it's so exciting for me to be delving into this world because it really is limitless when you realize the potential of the human body.
But the little things at first, there's so much low-hanging fruit. Like, if you're in Toronto, how deficient are you in Vitamin D? Probably a lot. Like, if you're in XYZ, how much deficient are you? And it's the little things that you could just tweak and add these things to your program. Because you know, you can make some massive strides at first. And then what's fun now where I'm at – and Dr. Jones, this has been super cool for me – is to say, "Okay. Now I've taken care of all of that low-hanging fruit. What else can I do to bring my brain to that superhuman level?" So, you're getting a small dose today, Fire Nation, of Dr. Isaac Jones.
Of course, if you want the full does, which I always recommend, his book "Superhuman Entrepreneur" is simply a must read. "Superhuman Entrepreneur", I've read it. I love it. Get there. Supercharge your brain. Become a superhuman entrepreneur. So, let's talk about that brain, Dr. And I really want to get into why you feel it's the most important asset an entrepreneur has. Break that down.
Dr. Isaac Jones: Yeah, beautiful. Well, it wasn't just enough for me to get my doctorate. I needed to get my diplomate and go through a lot of the education on being a neurologist, you know? So, I did a lot of these different advanced trainings on the brain and on functional neurology and how you can upgrade your brain. And ultimately, if you think about it, your brain is only 5% of your weight of your body or 3% your weight of your body, but it burns 20 – in some people, up to 30% of the calories of your entire body. That's how metabolically active it is. You've got 80 to 100 billion neurons. And each little neuron has 10,000 dendritic connections.
It has like little tree branches that go out and connect 10,000 times to all of these different neurons. And what's so beautiful about the brain is that you can change it. You can rewire your brain. It's what they call plastic, which is if you have healthy neuroplasticity; you can rewire your brain for high performance. You can upgrade and optimize your brain to enable you to become more productive, to get more done in less time, to be able to remember names, and to remember things that you weren't able to remember before. There is another level of what I believe is this superhuman brain that people can access through the three steps that we have.
So, there's a three-step methodology. The first step is uncovering or discovering what is actually inhibiting your brain from upgrading. And this is what we did for John for his brain and for his entire body. The next step is to upgrade. So, it's the process of the upgrading of the brain. And then the third step is next-level performance. Like John said, it's so cool that I've gotten past the first two stages. And now, he's tinkering with next-level performance. Like little things that you can do, technologies, nootropics, lifestyle strategies you can implement to really take your focus or your clarity to the next level.
But it is absolutely essential. It's the number one asset any entrepreneur has. And one of the reasons why a lot of the executives or entrepreneurs even work with me in the first place is because they're just like, "Hey, I want to maximize my brain function, because I know I'm going to maximize the profitability of my company and make a bigger impact for my company and the people that we're serving."
John Lee Dumas: I'll be the first to admit, Fire Nation, sometimes I do throw the phrase "value bombs" around when I'm chatting on my podcast. But I swear to god, Dr. Isaac Jones, when you're talking, I am literally seeing these visual bombs of value exploding above my head. It's so incredible. So, Fire Nation, let's break this down real quick. Number one, uncover what's inhibiting your brain. You uncover that. That's the discovery phase. Then you upgrade the brain. And then it's next-level performance. These are the three steps that we all need to be progressing forward with as we have the opportunity to right now, this day, this age.
So, there are some big issues that just frankly prevent entrepreneurs from upgrading their brain function. You've heard it all. You've seen it all, Dr. Jones. Break it down for us.
Dr. Isaac Jones: Yeah, for sure. Well, think about this. As entrepreneurs, we actually have different brains than the average individual. Right? Entrepreneurs, they typically push themselves a little harder. They're excitatory neurotransmitters are higher in the day. They burn through a lot of the concentration neurotransmitters. So, glycine can oftentimes be really high. And it's unfortunate, but this is what I see in a lot of neurotransmitter testing for all the entrepreneurs I work with around the world. These excitatory neurotransmitters overtake the brain and it's hard to shut your brain off. It's hard to get into deep states of meditation.
It's hard to even want to just relax for a little bit. Because you're just thinking about all these different things. And you condition your brain that way. There's actual neuropathways that get conditioned. The language of the brain is repetition. I'll say it again. The language of the brain is repetition. So, as entrepreneurs, when we're in startup mode and we're cranking and we're abusing our brain – for lack of a better term – that patterning of the brain way of thinking and functioning ends up translating when you're out of startup mode and you're making hundreds of thousands or millions or tens of millions of dollars, if not even more.
And your brain is still in this kind of lower-level mesencephalon function, which is the mid-brain where the emotional centers of the brain are really controlling the way that we're thinking and functioning on a day-to-day basis. Now, there's an evolved way of thinking and an evolved process of accessing this superhuman brain, both through the physiology and also psychology – the psychological aspect. But I'll tell you the top three things that we see in entrepreneurs' brains. Number one is toxicities. There's an elevation in toxicity. They're in front of their computers, their Bluetooth; their Wi-Fi is constantly up.
So, there's EMF toxicity. There's toxicity in the environment. Again, toxins bioaccumulate in the most metabolically active tissues of the body. The brain is the most metabolically active tissue of the body. So, oftentimes, a lot of toxins bioaccumulate in the brain. And that causes brain fog, headaches, a number of different symptoms that can form. Even develop preliminary issues that could lead to Alzheimer's or dementia later on in life. And then you've got deficiencies. John, you talked about deficiencies. And this is a huge problem. You know, a lot of people have neurotransmitter deficiencies, micronutrient deficiencies.
The micronutrients that neurotransmitters need in order to get produced are deficient because the vitamins are deficient. So, you need the vitamins, antioxidants, the minerals, the amino acids in order for your brain to function – the fatty acids, so important. Most people's brains, if you look at the brain, it's actually by weight 70% fat when you take out the water. Seventy percent of your brain is fat. So, you think about most people consuming all these toxic fats. Well, that's what actually makes up your brain. How well do you think your brain's going to function on the consumption of unhealthy fats? Well, not very well.
So, there's this whole change and transformation of your brain tissue that can take place in three months. That's so powerful. Your brain tissue replaces itself so fast – or actually, upwards of a year. Some aspects of your brain can be replaced in three months. But ultimately, over time, you can replace a lot of that fat. Over a year, if you're following some of the superhuman brain strategies. And then of course, you've got stress. And stress crushes the brain. It takes you from frontal cortex function, logical creative functioning down into the mesencephalon to the mid-brain to the emotional centers of the brain.
That's when you start getting even more stressed out. And that's where, unfortunately, a lot of entrepreneurs function from. So, if you can address the deficiencies, the toxicities, and then at the same time take your main operating system from the mesencephalon up into the frontal cortex through various strategies, then you access the superhuman brain. And that’s' when you get hyper productive. You access flow state on the regular. And you're just skipping and dancing.
John Lee Dumas: So, Fire Nation, let's go through this right now. Because there's a lot that Dr. Isaac Jones is throwing at us in a great way. But what are those biggest issues that are preventing you from upgrading your brain function? Well, it's toxicity. We're talking those EMFs. You know, all that Bluetooth, Wi-Fi that's in the air, the environment. Number two is deficiencies like the micronutrients and the such. Then of course, there's stress. And as entrepreneurs, we know stress. And so, we need to be dealing with these things. And for you, Dr. Jones, you have this incredible superhuman brain methodology. We've talked about it briefly already.
You know, step one is the discovery. Step two is the upgrade. Step three is the next-level performance. So, let's kind of start to go through this now so we can take our listeners, Fire Nation – most of whom are going to be at this step one phase, which I was at not too long ago, Fire Nation. I was at that discover phase myself – and let's walk them through this. So, what is the discover phase all about?
Dr. Isaac Jones: Wow. Yeah. It's really powerful. I mean, if you just want to take kind of the easy approach, you just ask yourself the question, "Is my brain functioning optimally?" Are you feeling fatigued at the end of the day? Are you experiencing brain fog throughout the day? Are you efficient with the sessions of work that you're focusing on getting done? Are you productive in that timeframe? At the end of the day, are you feeling okay? Is your brain still functioning normally or do you need a nap at the end of the day? Are you – you know, these are not normal ways to function.
If your brain has fatigue, if you've got brain fog, if you're not remembering properly, if you're dealing with scatterbrain, all of that really is a way to kind of discover that your brain is not functioning optimally. Now, if you've got ADHD, or dyslexia, or if you've got any other disorder and potentially even brain disease, then you know that your brain's not functioning properly. And the medical system, unfortunately, doesn't address this properly. They address is mechanistically through a drug or a surgery. But what we do is we look at is holistically as we talked about.
And we're seeing massive upgrades in people overcoming brain-based diseases, brain-based disorders just by these strategies that we're going to be talking about – lifestyle strategies they implement, et cetera. The advanced way – so, that's the basic way. The advanced way to discover what's going on in your brain is what John Lee Dumas did with me, which is to look at ordering advanced lab tests. You know, if you're looking into brain function, and neurotransmitters, and toxicities, and deficiencies, and what your microbiome looks like, and what your hormone levels look like, what your genetics – there's a lot.
I'm certified as a human potential expert in genomics – in human genomics. So, I can review over 500 different single nucleotide polymorphisms, which are the base of who you are genetically as an individual. And that’s what I did with John. And there were things inside of his genome that would inhibit him congenitally from having a fully functioning brain and body. And so, we addressed a customized approach to maximizing brain function through that. So, that's kind of the advanced way to discover. You're looking at your genome. You're looking at your microbiome. You're looking at all of the deficiencies and toxicities of the body.
And that's something that we do within my company. If you just jump to elevays.com/consulting, that's something that we'd be happy to connect with you on. But ultimately, the second stage is where the magic happens, which is the upgrade.
John Lee Dumas: Well, before we dive into that, Dr. Jones, I just really want to sit here for a second. Because Fire Nation, this is the exciting thing that we all have the opportunity for right now. We have the opportunity to realize, "Hey, I may not have been focusing on this for a good part of my life thus far." But as Dr. Jones said, after three months, after up to a year in that process, in that phase, if you're doing the right things, guess what. Your body, your brain, your overall system is going to be able to reinvigorate itself, reinvent itself, recreate itself.
And you're going to be able to really be where you want to be. So, you start doing the right things now. And we're going to be getting into step two and step three in just a couple minutes here, Fire Nation, when we get back from thanking our sponsor.
So, Dr. Jones, we're back. And you did mention quickly before the break that there was a place that Fire Nation can go. You mentioned your website. Why don't you just spell that out for us real quick and let Fire Nation know where they can go to find out more before we jump into number two.
Dr. Isaac Jones: Awesome. Yeah. So, if they're interested in doing the consulting, it's elevays.com/consulting. Thanks for that, John. And then if they're interested in the book, it's SuperhumanEntrepreneur.com/book. Again, that's SuperhumanEntrepreneur.com/book.
John Lee Dumas: Cool. And how do we spell Elevays?
Dr. Isaac Jones: E-L-E-V-A-Y-S. Elevated days brought together. So, E-L-E-V as in Victor A-Y as in Yahtzee S as in Sam dot com.
John Lee Dumas: Cool. Fire Nation, we're going to have all this linked up as always in the show notes. But Dr. Jones, let's keep moving forward. I want to hit into phase number two here. Because what is all this upgrade about?
Dr. Isaac Jones: Even if you don't think that you need to upgrade, you need to upgrade. Because listen to this, one of every two people have Alzheimer's by 80 and one in every four people have Alzheimer's by age 60. So, Alzheimer's starts 30 to 40 years before you get diagnosed. So, everyone needs to upgrade their brain because we live in a day and age where neurological conditions are skyrocketing. You know, 20 years ago, 30 years ago, 1 in every 10,000 kids had autism. Now, it's 1 in every 29 kids in Japan and 1 in every 39 kids in America.
So, these are neurological conditions. And there's a lot of theories as to why people are dealing with different neurological diseases and disorders in today's day and age. But the core is the second step. You need to understand that you can sometimes revers, but definitely prevent in the first place these issues. But ultimately, you can use your brain to help you get more done in less time and make a bigger impact in the world in the time that you have with whatever vision or mission that you're wanting to accomplish. So, the upgrade phase. There are so many different things that you can do in the upgrade phase.
We don't have time to get into this. But definitely John is going to have a link underneath this to a masterclass where – it's a free masterclass where I get into the details of how to upgrade your brain. But I will say there's a few things. There's lifestyle strategies. There's supplementation, nootropics. And then there's different technologies that you can use to upgrade your brain. John, is there any one particular area you think that the audience would resonate with that I could focus on in the time that we have?
John Lee Dumas: Yeah. So, just talk to us about supplements and nootropics. That would be a great area, I think, to focus on.
Dr. Isaac Jones: So good. Well, this is a topic in the Superhuman Brain Masterclass that I'm going. It's a free course that you guys can go through that John will have a link underneath this interview for. But you know, honestly, if somebody's just wanting to get started, there are three supplements that are essential to upgrade their brain. B vitamins, because B vitamins will help you get all the precursors or many of the precursors to help produce the neurotransmitters – the calming neurotransmitters like GABA and such to be able to decrease the excitatory neurotransmitters that so many entrepreneurs have in their brains that are just overpowering their thinking.
And so, that's just a good baseline. B vitamins as well as a good multivitamin with some fish oil. You're looking at around 4,000 milligrams a day of fish oil. Because again, we are unfortunately in a day and age where we're consuming too much Omega-6 and it does impact brain function. Because like I said before, 70% of brain tissue is made up of fat by weight when you take the water out. So, what are your – when we get into nootropics, there's Alpha Brain by Onnit, which is really a great product that's kind of like a midlevel nootropic that is good.
There are a lot of different nootropic stacks that you can kind of search online and try to figure out what that can look like. For some people, they like Qualia. Some people, they don't like Qualia. I think it's a genetic thing based off of some of the genetic analysis that I've looked at whether people are doing well with Qualia or not. But Qualia, for me, is one of the best nootropics. And I use it when I travel, especially overseas to overcome jet lag. And literally, I can go to Australia or Tokyo and have zero jet lag when I go over there and zero jet lag when I go back just through the strategies that I implement. If you want, I can get into this. It's actually pretty cool.
But Qualia is one of my favorites. And they've got some really good brain boosting micronutrients like Ginkgo Biloba. Cognizin is something that I think is a really powerful nootropic that helps with brain function. You've got Huperzine A, which is really powerful for increasing your ability to focus and get more brain power in a specific period of time if you're needing to do that. The phosphatidylserines and phosphatidylcholines are powerful. The Alpha GPC is something that's really good. But then you get into some of the brain boosting powers of the Indian herbs like cumin, and cardamom, and turmeric. You get the benefits of green tea.
These are things that I just put in my shakes anyways. Like, I'll put in a green tea powder, one every three days. I'll be using some sort of green tea powder like I did this morning. I use turmeric essential oil at night with some sort of wood essential oil. And I'm breathing in that and that has an impact on dopamine and serotonin levels before you go to bed at night. Just inhaling some of the essential oils. And there's a lot there like frankincense, and lavender, etcetera. But all these nootropics that are found in some of these stacks, if you just take them separate just inside of your shakes or on top of your salads, you can still get major benefit.
Lion's mane is another really powerful nootropic and brain boosting supplement along with acetyl-L-carnitine, which helps to turn on the mitochondria inside the brain to produce more ATP or keep brain energy at a good level. So, there's a lot that we could get into. But again, recommend getting some of the more – the free training that goes in more depth in the link below on the Superhuman Brain Masterclass that I'm doing as well.
John Lee Dumas: Well, Fire Nation, we talked about the discover phase. We talked about the upgrade phase. The third and final phase is next-level performance. And the reality is, Fire Nation, if you want to get access to this type of content, you're going to have to do one of a couple things. Number one, you're going to have to get the book "Superhuman Entrepreneur". It's an amazing book. Dr. Jones poured his heart, his soul, blood, sweat, and tears, and probably some turmeric in there as well. And he definitely made an incredible masterpiece. So, make that happen – "Superhuman Entrepreneur".
But also – and this is what we're going to talk about next as we kind of close this down, Dr. Jones, is your Superhuman Brain Masterclass. So, Fire Nation, this is a completely free training. Superhuman brain masterclass that goes through the three steps in more detail than what we've been able to even talk about today. And he has 30 expert interviews with biohackers, neuroscientists, researchers, and the world's leading brain physicians. My question to you, Dr. Jones, is what inspired you to create the Superhuman Brain Masterclass? And how can Fire Nation consume this great content?
Dr. Isaac Jones: Well, it's the number one asset that entrepreneurs have. And as somebody that serves entrepreneurs and executives around the world, I thought, "This needs to get out to the high-performing people in this world." Because my grandfather just a couple of years ago passed away from Alzheimer's. And I've struggled with ADHD and dyslexia. And my mom was suffering from anxiety and depression for years and was on Effexor and Prozac for years and got to the point of being suicidal. So, now, she's off all medications, transformed. Like, her brain is completely upgraded.
And I’m like, "Man, people need to understand this. Everyone need" – that's why I want to get this information out for free. You can obviously buy the course if you want to go through it all at your own pace. But I was like, "I need to get this out to as many people as we can." What's so cool right now is that we already have close to 85,000 people that are going to be watching it and there's going to be more. Yeah, it's really exciting. So, that's really my heart is that brain diseases and disorders are a reality.
Entrepreneurs use their brain differently than other people at a really high level of stress, deficiency, and even sometimes more of an elevated level of toxicity because they travel more than the average individual. And there's something that needs to be done about this. And it's about upgrading. It's about creating this next-level brain that I know that you're capable of creating. And ultimately, as a side effect, the diseases and disorders of the 21st Century will dissipate. And the prevention mechanisms that are put in place will help to allow for you to live a lot longer on this earth.
And so, I look at this course as an ability for you to live maybe 5, 10, 15, maybe even 20 years longer. But it's not just about length of life, it's about quality of life, which is what this focusing on brain health will create for you.
John Lee Dumas: I mean, we're going to both be 150 years old cheering with a nice green tea on my deck here in Puerto Rico. What year will that be? That's going to be like 20 – add 80. That will be like year 2100. That'll be amazing. We're going to make it happen. It's going to be so much fun.
Dr. Isaac Jones: Absolutely. I 100% believe that. I do.
John Lee Dumas: I love it. Me too. So, give us the call to action. Where can we go to get access to this incredible masterclass, Superhuman Brain Masterclass?
Dr. Isaac Jones: Yeah. Well, just check the link below this. But it is SuperhumanBrainMasterclass.com But I'd love for you to check the link associated with this interview. And it is, again, such – it's like my life's work for brain health and science. And then beyond that, I'm interviewing the top nootropic scientists – the medical doctors that are behind Qualia, the scientists that are behind Onnit, the biohacking technologists that are behind some of the technology that's out there. But it's just such a great conversation to have and such a great place for you to get your education around maximizing your brain and really upgrading to superhuman.
John Lee Dumas: Love it, Fire Nation. Well, we can't take any more of this incredible gentleman's time. I mean, I'm looking forward to the fact that I get to be spoiled by getting to hang out with him in person down here in Puerto Rico. But just, Dr. Jones, give us one thing. You know, we're going to take away so many things from this, obviously. But if there was just one thing you're like – if there was just one thing that Fire Nation can really walk away with, what is that one thing?
Dr. Isaac Jones: When somebody is dealing with a large level of stress, brain diseases and disorders start to climb like crazy. So, if you can – if you could just implement one takeaway, it would be to live your life in a state of meditation. And if you can, get into a place where you can meditate, and calm your brain down. And just massage your brain and focus on things that bring joy, and happiness, and excitement to your life. So, if you can do that, what we've seen in the research is that your brain will start to rewire to become more peaceful versus more stressful.
So, creating and chalking out that time for some meditation is going to be one of the best things that you can possibly do to decrease stress. And there's just so much around that that I'd love to talk about. But if you just did one thing, it would be decrease stress. And my primary strategy for that is meditation and breathing.
John Lee Dumas: Fire Nation, you're the average of the five people you spend the most time with and you've been hanging out with DIJ and JLD today. So, keep up the heat and head over to EOFire.com. If you just type "Isaac" in the search bar, his show notes page is going to pop up with all the links and everything we've been talking about today. Plus, you can go back and listen to the previous interview we did with him, which he knocked out of the park. We talked about a lot of different things. But the two strong calls to action, get the book "Superhuman Entrepreneur". It will change your life. I don't use those words lightly.
And then check out SuperhumanBrainMasterclass.com. Get over there. Learn from the best, to include Dr. Jones. And Isaac, I just want to say thank you, brother, for sharing your truth, your knowledge, your humbleness with Fire Nation today. And for that, we salute you. And we'll catch you on the flip side.
Dr. Isaac Jones: Thank you.
