How To Do Wim Hof Breathing "The Right Way", Making Your Own DMT, Inhaling Pure Carbon Dioxide, Cold Showers, MDMA & Much More - The Keys to Human Resilience. My guest on today's show, an immersive journalist and self-experimenter named , first joined me for the fantastic episode entitled           Today, Scott - a New York Times Bestselling author - is back to discuss his brand new book, which I found to be a thrilling and inspirational read: "."           Thrive or die: That's the rule of evolution. Despite this brutal logic, some species have learned to survive in even the most hostile conditions. Others couldn't—and perished. While incremental genetic adaptations hone the physiology of nearly every creature on this planet, there's another evolutionary force that is just as important: the power of choice. In an explosive investigation into the limits of endurance, in "The Wedge", Scott discovers how humans can wedge control over automatic physiological responses into the breaking point between stress and biology. We can reclaim our evolutionary destiny.         While writing the book, Carney submerged himself in ice water and learned breathing techniques from daredevil fitness guru Wim Hof. It gave him superhuman levels of endurance and quieted a persistent autoimmune illness. At the core of those methods is a technique called The Wedge that can give a person an edge in just about any situation.       In my conversation w/ Scott, you'll discover:         -What is "The Wedge" described in Scott's book?...18:00         -The concept of "neural symbology"...18:23         -How kettlebells build trust and allow the body to relax in the face of stress...24:10         -Scott's findings on carbon dioxide (CO2)...37:09         -How Scott and his wife condensed 6 months of couples therapy in 3 hours...58:00         Episode sponsors: Kion Lean, Butcher Box, Magnesium Breakthrough by BiOptimizers, Vuori Clothing
