About Us

Modern life presents a constant assault on our brain - from over-exposure to blue light, to being sedentary, to the rise of ADHD - humans are losing the coolest thing nature ever made! 3 lbs of gelatinous material that can speak Arabic & Chinese or design a rocket. We are losing brain volume & density and seeing a rise in brain-related disease that a tsunami of woe. ***The Primal Brain Podcast is all about HOW TO STAY HUMAN IN A SCREEN-DRIVEN WORLD*** We will change how you view the brain, body and health by transforming tough ideas and complicated science into bite-size pieces we can all use to optimize our brain/body/family health. This is way beyond ‘paleo’, ‘keto’ or biohacking. This is bioaligning to our true human potential is possible. #primalbrainpodcast

How to Grow a Brain

EWhat's at the core of everything you're trying to do as a parent? Yup, that's right - that little noggin'. Without a healthy, dense, tightly-wired brain - all that effort, all those lessons and all that love add up to - well, not as much as we'd like. Parents MUST protect that baby/kid/teen brain at all costs! From helmets to DHA and sleep to nutrition, putting your kid's brain health first and foremost is a smart move.

[You Can't] Duct Tape Everything - A Conversation with Jon Aguilar

EIn this episode (#11 of Season 1) Rio and Jenni talk to Jon Aguilar, Master Stonesmith and Artist (also Jenni's husband). The core of the conversation is about how men handle the various aspects of brain injury - whether it's their own or a friend/child/spouse. We take on critical issues around dismissiveness, the invisibility of brain injury, how men handle being vulnerable (hint, they don't like it) and how terrifying it is to face your own mortality. Jon references these things you may want to explore: Dr. Gordon's 'Stealth Syndrome' http://www.tbimedlegal.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderfiles/TBI_The_Stealth_Syndrome.pdf Shilajit (we call it, 'This Shit's Legit':https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shilajit Dr. Walker on the Joe Rogan podcasthttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pwaWilO_Pig The SPEAR (self-defense) system and Tony Blauer -https://blauerspear.com/ PDTR Therapy -http://pdtr-global.com/ You can find Jon and his amazing work at:https://www.facebook.com/heritageearthandstone/?r...

[You Can't] Duct Tape Everything - A Conversation with Jon Aguilar

Catastrophe in Cali! Danger & The Brain

EThe Thomas Fire swept through California a few months ago. Jenni and Rio happen to live right, smack where that happened. Then it rained and a huge mud/debris-slide killed 23 people and destroyed a large swath of the small town, Montecito (also just a few miles from our home). In the midst of all this threat, terror and tragedy were repeated evacuations, intensely unhealthy air-quality, closed freeways, no phone services, no internet services, no way to commute, get to school or work and lots of economic fallout. So how does all this affect the brain? What is our human default setting for disaster? How do we recover? What are the benefits of danger? What happens when we lose modernity for a minute? We try to answer all that and more - hopefully we don't fail. Check it out.

Catastrophe in Cali! Danger & The Brain

The Blunting of Both Sexes

EIn this episode, Jenni and Rio talk about the differences between women's and men's brains. But that's not all folks! We then connect the cultural 'blunting' that is happening to each sex via, 1) The over-diagnoses of ADHD and over-drugging of boys and young men and 2) The mislabelling of women's emotions and how their feelings are also being medicated away. Men's brains are oriented towards the intelligence of action, and women really do have the better brain when it comes to reading faces, understanding feelings and caring for others. Why, oh why, does our culture want to flatline these evolutionary attributes? Listen up, find out and defend yourself against bad ideas like medicating every-damn-thing.

Western Medicine: A Collage of Bandaids

EIn this episode, Rio and Jenni talk about Western medicine's failed episodic approach to 'health'. Rio coined it a 'collage of bandaids' and that is spot on. Regaining or maintaining health requires a comprehensive view of what a Homo sapien really IS. What do we truly need to feel great and vibrant? We also cover the lack of evidence-based medical care, why people are all hopped up on 'fast thinking' and what happens when people self-report about their diet (spoiler: They lie). Also, Jenni talks about her process with clients and why slow and broad thinking is helpful in her work.

Q & A with Mixed Mental Artists

From Hell to Healing

EPeople often ask me how I (Jenni) got involved in brain health. Like many things, it was unexpected and unplanned. My son suffered from three (3!) brain injuries during just 2 years (from ages 12 - 14).And I was scared. Terrified. Reeling. Determined. Bold. Insistent. Angry. Brain injury is terrifying. Not just the initial bleeding, or visible injury but the invisible injury. The change in personality, the loss of function, the strange nature of brain injury itself. It sucks. Our situation wasbad, so naturally I just decided (against all advice) that my son could and would heal. 100% and nothing less. This stanceled me through scores of books, hundreds of websites and thousands of pieces of research (most of which I only barely understood). And it led me to solutions. This is our story.

The Electrical Brain

EIn this episode we announce the NEW website - www.primalbrain.net - where all things Primal Brain live. This includesup and coming announcements about the book, sneak peaks at the cover art for thebook (which is bad-ass!) and more. We talk about how the brain actually works - via cumulative electrical wave patterns. It's a weird concept that takes us out of thinking about our brain structure/organ and into thinking about the how the brain functions - coherent electrical signals. It sounds all complicated, but it's fairly simple. And you're still in charge of your own neuroplasticity (sorry, no passes!).
