Rohan left his academic job as neuroscientist to spend almost an year with monks in Tibetan mountains. Initially focusing on scanning monks’ brains, his focus shifted to heart rate variability (HRV) as a way into the state of our mind. In this interview, Rohan discusses HRV both as a measurement of and intervention to mental wellbeing, Lief Therapeutics and its wearable continuous HRV monitor, the often unknown power of biofeedback to control our body, and much more!
In this interview, Dmitri explains TaoPatch – small wearable patches that transform the body heat into therapeutic frequencies and offer benefits of acupuncture + light therapy. We also discuss Dmitri’s work at Transformative Tech and fascinating frequency technologies like Lucia Light
When my acupuncturist asked how my stress level was, my sincere answer used to be: “Not particularly stressed. My job is a deskwork writing emails and such. It’s not that stressful”. Little did I know!
After I started wearing my Oura ring, the most surprising findings were my deep sleep and very low nighttime HRV. (You can read my experience with hydrogen water that dramatically improved my deep sleep here.) Most of the nights my HRV was below 20, even I wasn’t training hard or facing a noticeable stress. Stress management should be #1 priority for anyone interested in hacking their health, and so I decided to dig deeper.
