Real Estate Investing Demystified | Daniel Tausan | LongevityDaniel Tausan holds a graduate degree from the University of British Columbia in Stem Cell Biology with a Bachelor of Science in General Biology. He worked in research in the molecular profiling of exercise, looking into comprehensive blood panels in search of biomarkers for predictive health analytics with Molecular You and UBC’s School of Kinesiology to develop methods for biological age calculation. He spent his early 20s with the Canadian National Waterpolo Team and coached the next generations of athletes to participate in the youth Pan-American games and World Championships. He personally trained clients for general fitness goals and athletic performance and continued to share the biological knowledge of the molecular world from his scientific pursuits. Asthma, allergies and gastrointestinal challenges throughout his early years kept him eager to explore regenerative principles and the healthcare systems. Although the academic and industry surrounding the molecular biological revolution were exploding few professionals were present to help the public interact and integrate with the newfound biological knowledge. With a love for education and working directly with people he stepped away from academics. He launched Timeline Sciences to put “you” on the timeline aligned with your unique genome and goals.


Unlocking Longevity Secrets With Scientist Daniel Tausan: Can Humans Live To 150? Discovering Health Truths Beyond The Pharma Curtain

We’re excited to be back here and have an exciting show. We have an exciting guest on our show. This is a conversation that I always talk a lot about to myself, others, and you about life, health, longevity, and all the other great stuff. That’s the conversation we’re going to have. It’s a bit of a deviation from our usual show, which is about investing in real estate and all sorts of economic items.

The reason we’re bringing Daniel into the show is we always say this, “You can build as much wealth as you want, but if you don’t have your health, you have nothing. You can’t enjoy your wealth. I believe that health comes first. I’m passionate about everything we’re going to talk about. I’m excited to dive into things and get some tips from Daniel.

We see a lot of people who have been tremendously successful in business, but it was at the cost of their well-being and mental health. This idea of, “You can have all the money in the world, but you can’t get to enjoy it.” That’s the question here. Longevity, health, and mobility are all important. It’s not about how long you live but how you get there. You could live to be 90 years old, but if the last several years you were bedridden and you couldn’t do anything, did you live? Those are the conversations we’re going to be having. We’re excited.

Our conversation that we’re going to have with Daniel and this tiny sliver of all the information we’re going to be giving is an attempt to enrich our lives, families’ lives, the audience’s lives, and friends’ lives by discussing this topic. We’re joined by Daniel Touson. He holds a graduate degree in stem cell biology from the University of British Columbia with a Bachelor of Science in General Biology.

He worked in research in the molecular profiling of exercise, looking into comprehensive blood panels in search of biomarkers for predictive health analytics with molecular U and UBC’s School of Kinesiology to develop methods for biological age calculation. With a love for education and working directly with people, he stepped away from academics. He launched Timeline Sciences to put you on a timeline aligned with your unique genome and goals. Welcome Daniel. We’re excited to have you.

Thank you. It’s a pleasure to be here.

We always have this of who we believe this interview is helpful to. It’s usually this person or demographic, but this interview is helpful for everyone.

This will bring great value to everybody. We have an expert here. Let’s start diving into things. Daniel, first question. Could you share a bit about your personal journey in exploring the science of longevity and what motivated you to become an expert in this field?

There was never a motivation for knowing longevity. The longevity was a consequence of being stuck with the cellular underpinnings of life. We have this humongous organism that’s comprised of 30 to 70 trillion cells. That’s a lot of different cells doing a lot of different things. That is the key interest that I’ve had since I was born. The moment I could start talking, I kept asking, “What happens if you keep zooming in? If you keep going further, what do you get to eventually?” My parents told me, “Stop talking. That’s enough out of you. You get to nothing. Leave it alone.”

It’s that curiosity that’s driven me to, from the athletic pursuits, what supplements to take. How do I get faster? How do I get stronger? What’s better recovery than going towards the medical and science fields and discovering that everything comes back to the cell? We’ll talk about longevity in a few different aspects, but there are the cellular determinants. How well can the cell do? There are the physiological components.

All these cells are working together to give you a heart rate and lung function. If the cellular determinants aren’t where they need to be and they’re at a cap, that’s going to be a clear determinant of how long you live. They could be completely fine, but you can have a stroke or a heart attack. The physiology there wasn’t being tipped.

Those are the two balances for longevity that I break it up into. We can address if there are risks for the physiology, but then what are the cells telling us? How do we do the best for the cell? The secrets in the cell are a window into our history on this planet. We get to live about a hundred years, plus or minus. We don’t have access to what happened 10,000 years ago. Human beings are here. How do we connect with that ancestry? It is a lot through what’s happening in the cell. It’s the genetic memory that we’re carrying on.



Daniel, considering the vast amount of information on longevity, what do you believe are the key factors that significantly contribute to a longer and healthier life?

I like you asked that in terms of belief because there are things I do believe and things that I can clearly articulate that I know. An important distinction to make is science is becoming more muddled and used in a business rather than science being the science and something you can go back to and build from. I’ll start with what I do and what I know. The first and most obvious ones in this age are your nutrition and fasting. There is insurmountable evidence that there needs to be a portion of the day where you’re not eating. What you’re eating needs to complete the nutrients that you require to live on this planet. That’s a must.

Number two, mood and temperament. The word to remember is laughter. Those who laugh more throughout their day live longer. Even if they have terrible blood profiles, if they have a certain temperament, they seem to outlast and outlive. You can also have a negative act. You can be an angry person, but they’ll get you further than the guy who is apathetic, but they won’t get you as far as the person who’s in a better state of mind.

Third, sleep and naps. The key thing to take away from sleep is linked to the circadian rhythm. If the sun rises, you rise. The eight hours of sleep a day is a misdirection. It doesn’t necessarily matter how many hours of sleep you get. If you’re sleeping from 6:00 AM to 3:00 in the afternoon, that’s not going to do you any good.

Rise with the sun. Go to bed on time. That’s adequate for your chronobiology. The people who tend to outlive the rest of us nap during the day. They wake up with the sun, if not before. They take a short 20 to 30-minute nap, and they can take a nap while they’re sitting. It’s a scale that some people can develop. The fourth one is cold exposure. Have you guys heard of Bergmann’s rule?

No, we haven’t.

It’s an eco-geographical rule of how the same type of species or family of related animals is going to be bigger the more you go toward the poles. Take a look at the emperor penguin. It’s the biggest penguin. It’s in the coldest region of the planet. The more you go towards the warmer parts of the planet, the smaller the respective species that are related to that clad. Cold is an incredible stimulus for the organism. We have to function in this thermal equilibrium for our enzymes to function. The cold makes it so that our body is able to rise to that challenge.

Polar bears are the biggest bears.

It’s the largest-length carnivore. They are devastating and scary. Grizzlies are humongous. That’s terrifying. The cold is irreplaceable. It is interesting to see the biology of human beings in comparison to other animals and how our cells are able to deal with the cold. We have something special because almost every single cell has a bay to interact with the cold. Others, like a mouse, will be restricted in the tissues.

Real Estate Investing Demystified | Daniel Tausan | Longevity

Longevity: The cold is something that’s also irreplaceable, and it’s very interesting biology with the human being in comparison to other animals and how we are able to deal with it.


The last one, and I’ll be careful the way I say it so I don’t give the wrong impression, is these case studies where you have individuals reaching 100 years old. They have a distilled liquor. They’re not slamming it. They’re taking a thimble-sized amount a day that they use the digestive system. That’s another component that seems to rise to help individuals make it further because digestion is an expensive process. If you can aid that process anyway, that’s going to help you be able to do it more.

The question is, where’s the exercise in this? How come the top five exercises come into it? The reality is walking is good enough. If you walk, you can easily make it to 100, no problem. You’re going to have a quality difference. The person who has been actively stimulating their muscles and going through the stressor of loading weight across their joints when it comes to the 60s, 70s, and 80s.

Mobility is huge, and it doesn’t feel good to have restricted movement. That aspect of quality of life is meaningful. It’s meaningful for social engagements that you’re capable of participating in and what you can do for others. There’s a benefit for the exercise in terms of longevity standards like, “I want to make it to 100.” You have to walk.

What are those five again?

It was diet, sleep, temperament, cold, and digestion. I want to dive into each one and break them down because there are a lot of questions on my mind, and a lot of things are coming to mind. Let’s break each one of those down. I am starting with diets. Historically, the enemy was fat. Now, the enemy is sugar. There are lots of discussions about the Mediterranean diet and the keto diet, which I made August go on when we first met. There’s a carnivore diet, which we tried for a little bit. We were excited about how we felt. Is there a diet that’s best for us humans?

My good friend Jon Carin, rest in peace. He would always say, “Every animal on the planet knows what their exact diet is except humans.” We don’t know what our diet is. We’re still searching to figure out our diet.

It can be confusing out there. Alongside diet, you’re mentioning fasting. I was reading a book, and it said, “Eat fat in the morning. Eat carbs at night.” There are many things. It’s hard to test it and figure out what’s best for us. Talk to us about that, Daniel, if you don’t mind. I understand that each person is different. It might be a different theory for each person.

That’s a hard question because the easy overarching answer is how easy it is, but it is the diet that you or your lineage has adapted to. There’s a critical time point of about three weeks when you’re born where your microbiome is not solidified, but it’s finding its balance within your system. It comes early on in age. Mom has the most influence over what our microbiome is going to be. Based on our lineage of what our ancestors ate, plus what mom gives us early on, we decide what nutrients are going to be easiest for us to deal with in the coming years as we start exploring the foods that are available to us.

As human beings, we are bizarre because we can eat almost anything. Because of that, it’s made it so that we’re in this guessing game of what’s good for you and what’s not. From a physiological standpoint, fat is incredibly healthy. If a person is fat, another way to think about it is that their genetic system for incorporating fat and lipogenesis is phenomenal. It’s working well, but it’s going to come as a consequence to other parts of their health.

There’s this idyllic diet or the keto diet. One thing I’ve realized is that if everything were wrong, it would be easy to figure it out. Because there’s a truth in all of it, it keeps people sometimes going down erroneous paths before someone comes and introduces them. Do you know that keto refers to ketosis? It’s a metabolic state. You can eat whatever you want and still be in ketosis. You’re like, “No, carbohydrates kick you out of ketosis.”

If everything was wrong, it would be easy to figure it out. Click To Tweet

For those who are not familiar, if you eat carbohydrates, you’ll stop this metabolic process of producing ketones. That’s what ketosis is referring to. You’re producing this energy resource that’s a ketone, but it’s also a signaling molecule. If you eat carbohydrates, your liver stops this enzyme. It inhibits the enzyme and you’re no longer producing ketones. If you eat one meal a day, within eight hours you’re gonna be back to producing ketones. Technically you’re in this state of metabolic flexibility, which I advocate for heavily as a way of maintaining health. You didn’t have to eat avocados and bacon or meat. You could have eaten some lentils and beans and you could have gotten back to ketosis.

We wouldn’t have known that because we thought about carbs right away.

We thought that the keto diet with intermittent fasting was the best way of going about doing things.

I love that you laid it out there. You’re like, “You can eat whatever you want in that meal. As long as you’re fasting, you can still get your ketosis back.”

Exercise will get you there. If you eat a meal and decide to go and do some endurance training, it’ll take you about an hour to two of continuous exercise, which is not fun. It could be if you’re that type of guy, but it’ll take you about an hour or two before your blood will start producing ketones again. You can detect blood in endurance athletes within that sort of timeframe.

I have a couple of questions, Daniel, to break things down more. You mentioned eating one meal a day, correct?

Yeah, that is an option.

With that option, I’m curious. Would that be morning, night, or afternoon or does it depend on each person or does it not even matter? Should somebody work out after they eat to refuel their body? Is it better to work out before you eat before you out?

It does depend on an individual’s specifics and how they have adapted. If you are eating one meal a day, generally, what’s considered the ideal time would be somewhere between 4:00 and 5:00 as this idyllic window for having that one meal. It’s not like you’re eating a plate. You’re eating an hour’s worth of food. You’re sitting down. You might have fruit to start. You take a little time and have another couple of dishes. It’s a ritual that you participate in.

There’s an aspect in which you can train the system to say, “I’m going to put myself to high exertion. I won’t eat until the next day.” That might suck for about a month for a person that hasn’t done that. Eventually, they will adapt. When they adapt, there might be great benefits that come with that. There also might be a limitation.

We know this from the scientific community because there are plenty of athletes and bodybuilders who will have one meal a day and have a restrictive plant-based diet. They continue to keep gaining mass and strength even though they have these large windows of not eating. It’s easier if you say, “I want to get big.” You have to eat more. There are different ways to go about doing it. The person is a testament to what they can achieve with it.

There are ways of being nice with the biology or kind to yourself. There are ways to be a caveman where you’re like, “I’m going to brute force it.” That’s going to come with a lot more aches, pains, and problems than working with someone who has some understanding of biochemistry to help facilitate the ease of that transition.

For the majority of individuals, it is ideal to do the strength exercise, wait a little bit, and have your food. There’s a mythological twenty-minute window where you can get some electrolytes in you, like coconut water or lemon water, to help you refuel and recover. It’s best to treat that meal that’s coming afterward as a ritualistic process where you try to make your digestion easy to simulate the food that will have a bigger impact in the long term than this. I need a twenty-minute window or a pump-up beforehand.

Real Estate Investing Demystified | Daniel Tausan | Longevity

Longevity: It’s best to treat that meal that’s coming afterward as the spiritualistic process where you try and make your digestion easy to simulate the food that will have a bigger impact long term.


There’s a psychological aspect where people like having stuff beforehand because it’s satiating and pleasurable, and they participate in exercise. For a lot of the highly competitive athletes, if they have a competition early in the morning, they’re going to have something simple as the pre-food, like fruit. They won’t even touch a muffin. I’ve met athletes like, “No, I don’t want. It’s going to cause me to cramp.” There’s a lot to it.

Number one, it’s what recommendations are in your research and studies. What you’re saying is that it doesn’t have to be one particular type of food like keto or carnivore. It can be diverse. Different types of food, one meal a day, and some form of fasting are recommended. Knowing what your ancestral background is and what type of foods you have more tendencies to work with makes more sense.

One aspect that I always talk about is that I believe that when civilization started 10,000 years ago, it possibly went back 40,000 years ago, that factory farming was not there, and food was in a way scarce in small civilizations that we lived in when cities started, and religion gets involved, and this does this idea of preserving food.

Being a vegetarian was a big plus. You have the largest populated countries in the world. China and India are both Hinduism and Buddhism. They both eat vegetables and don’t eat animals because if you eat everything around you, there’s nothing left. Is there a part of this idea of being vegetarian, a way to control people and tell them what to eat, what not to eat ideas? Touch on that a bit, if you don’t mind.

I’m on a two-meal-a-day plan. One meal a day would be great. Some days, I do hit the one meal because I’m not hungry in the morning. I’ll avoid the fruit that I normally eat. That’s a phenomenal question, but thank you for that. I love the insight there. Out of a case study, for example, a lady in India has rice, lentils, and about 30 spices. She’s 104. That tells you right away. That was enough for her to go. As far as meat goes, the evidence is a landslide in favor of it being good for your health. That’s going to be the case when you take a look at ecology, where every single plant that exists needs to defend itself.

Plants have a bigger genome than human beings. When we were uncovering genetics, we thought, “We’re going to be complex. We’re going to be on top of the food chain in terms of how many genes we’re going to have.” It turns out rice has more than double the size of the human genome. When we started exploring this more, it had some credence like, “This thing is stuck in its spot.”

It has to defend itself from many pests that we can’t even consider. It has to create all these molecules to protect itself from being eaten and telling fungus, “Don’t touch me yet.” From insects, “You’re not supposed to eat me.” It produces cyanide. At the right time, if the insect does, it’ll learn. When an animal eats and processes that hard-to-digest plant, it’s doing the work for you. It’s easier to simulate the animal in some regards than it is the plant.

Not everyone needs to eat the same thing. That’s the big takeaway message. Where you are within your life stage, like if you’re a growing baby, you’re going to want milk. If you’re a young kid, I would think you’d want a lot of meat. You don’t have to have the meat, but if you do, it’ll be easier because the plant sources aren’t as easily accessible for you at the time.

Not everyone needs to eat the exact same thing. Click To Tweet

Now comes the point where, for me personally, I don’t like the factory farm style of support because there’s a lot of suffering that happens to the animals. The people would like that separation from it. An animal has that emotional life that it’s lived, and it’s present in its meat. When we eat that, we have to break that down and assimilate it because there’s conservation in terms of what any mammal is going to be similar to what’s in us. We’re similar. If you’re eating something similar, you might have these same molecules that now get incorporated into yourself with slightly different twists.

When we hunt these animals, don’t they go through the stress when they’re getting hunted and they get scared? Do you mean being stuck in certain areas?

Your enclosure for the entirety of the creature’s life is being force-fed by soy pellets. Those soy pellets are extremely high through it. The animal is stressed not during its hunting. An acute stress response is great. That’s a healthy, thriving system. A chronic stress response that’s perpetually theory causes a system to deteriorate.

If you’re hunting an animal, the animal is not stressed all the time. The animal doesn’t know. It’s experiencing bliss for the vast majority of its existence. If it’s an antelope, it’s bouncing up and down. It looks happy. It has to run away from a predator. If it gets away, it is even happier. There’s a game that’s being played of hide and seek within nature. You can taste the difference in the meat that you hunt. There’s a massive difference in taste. It tells you right away there’s something different in a chemical composition.

It’s not to pull out things because the science isn’t solved by any means. We’re not there yet because we’re in the process of uncovering what that means. Even factory farm meats seem to be good enough in some health instances. You might be exposed to maybe more hormones than you are normally exposed to. There might be antibiotics that might damage your lining and gut.

The textbooks that I went through for hepatology teach you about detoxification pathways and chlorophyll molecules that come from plants. There’s barely anything that tells you, “If you flush the system with high amounts of protein, what happens?” We have an idea of other aspects of what happens when you flush the system with high amounts of protein. People who have had chronic conditions that they’ve dealt with for 40 years switch to a heavy meat diet. It’s meat and fruit. They’ve reversed chronic conditions that they’ve been battling since they were teens.

Those stories, to me, are a testament to spending more time and examining what’s in front of us to say, “Eating meat is ridiculous.” There’s an important societal and cultural responsibility that we go around perpetuating suffering unnecessarily, like having better heritage farms or farming that’s not clear-cut your land. I’m trying to get maximum profit out of it. There needs to be some separation for this where people recognize that we want to support this. We don’t want to let this run astray like runaway-style economics.

The next topic was sleep. Everybody has always heard, “You need eight hours of sleep, or else you’re doomed. That’s how you live longer.”

Daniel touched on it a bit. It’s not about the hours you sleep. It’s when you sleep. You always hear about people who work night shifts end up getting more heart disease and other issues.

Daniel, there’s no particular amount of hours somebody needs to sleep.

What you eat the day will determine how much sleep you’ll need. If you eat something that needs a lot of digestion or heavy digestion, you’ll sleep more. Your body will ask you to sleep more. Whether you sleep more or not depends on how disciplined you are.

I love the fact that, with science back, Daniel is saying that naps are a healthy thing. A twenty-minute nap, some people can’t take them. They’re like, “I can’t nap at all.” I haven’t taken a nap in a while because we have a newborn baby. There’s not much time in the day. You mentioned in a twenty-minute nap, you can rejuvenate yourself and wake up.

|We don’t know the molecular mechanism at this point. All we can do is, in the associations, get the observations down. There’s something going on. When a person does go to sleep or powers down, it allows the system to clean up. While we’re actively doing things, you can’t do the cleaning or the reparative mechanisms, but as soon as you power it down, that allows a shift in your metabolism. That seems to be good enough to keep yourself happy and healthy for years to come.

Let’s touch on the sleep more. I’ve slept sometimes for ten hours, and I still feel tired. Sometimes, I sleep much less, and I feel much more energy. This idea of REM sleep is something we always hear about. Maybe touch on that a bit, if you don’t mind.

REM sleep is cool. It’s one of my favorite pieces of information to share. People have almost this secret insight into REM. What you can do is you can do something called the astronaut sleeping program. You can condense your REM cycle into a short amount of time. If you only slept for two hours, you’re still experiencing five cycles of REM. The way the astronauts do it is they take off five minutes every two weeks regimented.

It eventually comes down because you don’t want the astronauts sleeping in space. You’re up there. You have to make use of it. This is a ticking time clock because you’re not meant to be in space. Your body is peeing out calcium in a ridiculous phase. Your heart is going to have a hard time when you come back to earth if you stay up there too long.

The sleep component is key because we like comfy beds that might not be good for us. The fact that you’re in a comfy bed that it’s hard to get out of. It makes it harder for circulation and other components, which might exacerbate, “I slept for ten hours, but I still don’t feel rejuvenated.” There’s another component of, like, “Was the sleep restful?” If there are things that are agitating mentally, you can have a not restful sleep.

There’s the science that’s emerging called chronobiology. Chrono refers to time. Each person will change how much sleep they need throughout time. I was lucky as a young kid with my mom. If I wanted to sleep, she’d let me sleep and miss class. I’d come to school and makeup to work. I always got good grades. She never had a problem with it.

I trained, and I wouldn’t get to bed until late. She let me sleep. I could sleep as an athlete. As soon as I stop exercising and eating these heavy meals, I can get away with six and a half hours of sleep, and I’m up at them. The other part of sleep is, is there something you’re rising for with a purpose? If you’re waking up to something with a purpose, you have a meeting, an airplane to catch, or a competition, are excited to see someone, or are going to go surfing, it is easy to get up.

If you're waking up to something with a purpose, it is easy to get up. Click To Tweet

Sometimes, we have a big project, or on a regular day, it’s hard to get up. If I have to go skiing, I’m up at 4:30 in the morning.

He’s jumping out of bed. I’m like, “You have in you. This is amazing.”

That phenomenon is something that’s hard to study. It’s something that, in the psychological studies, you often have to ignore. You can’t incorporate that in, but there’s a psyche component. It’s intimately linked with longevity. Is there something you’re rising for with a purpose? It doesn’t have to be this grand enlightenment. It could be as simple as weaving a basket. You’re going to go in the morning and weave a basket. The basket is going to get circular through your community. That is the purpose.


Real Estate Investing Demystified | Daniel Tausan | Longevity


A lot of the case studies show that there’s a 104-year-old lady that’s coming out, and she’s weaving baskets, but that’s what she’s looking forward to doing a day. People love her baskets. The sleep aspect is key because no matter where you go on the planet, your rhythm tunes to the sun. The circadian rhythm is this important aspect in which there’s no deviation from it. If the moment you do it, the problems start to rise, and you need to get back to it.

The body tries to communicate as best it can to the conscious part. Our scanning radar that some, for some reason, people love associating to think, “It doesn’t matter. The rest of me is not important. What’s important is this conscious part.” Can the conscious part come into awareness of, like, “I ate a lot of bread and slept for nine hours. I took bread out of my diet for eating three days. I’m already down to eight hours.”

People will see that if they take things out of their diets and fast for several days, they’ll notice how on the third day when they sleep, one, they might have difficulty getting to sleep because they have so much energy or two, they might wake up like hours before the alarm. We’re like, “What am I supposed to be doing now?” It’s nice because it gets the person coming back into, “What do I wanna do? What did I come here to do because you clearly can’t do something?”

Is it important to be regimented as far as if you are going to sleep at dusk or around that time waking up at dawn? You’re going to sleep at 9:00 PM and wake up at 6:00 AM type of thing, should that be consistently at the same time? Should that time be moved? Is that in any way? Are you seeing any research on that?

Almost the vast majority of us like patterns. Our biology can get into a set of expectations. We’re doing this constantly. If you eat three meals a day, you will secrete a hormone called ghrelin before you need to eat almost idyllic. When you’ve had this regimented time, it’ll take you about 7 to 21 days to shift that hormonal response.

It’s similar to sleep. For all of us, our liver doesn’t like food past around 8:00, not 7:00 or 8:00. If you’re still eating heavy meals after 8:00, you’re making it difficult for your liver, which means every single day you’re pushing how much it has to deal with detoxifying your system. If you don’t sleep between 10:00 to 2:00, and those are the most critical time points for the liver to detoxify, you’re constantly pushing it. It has to deal with it another day. All of a sudden, somewhere within the 30s, 40s, and 50s, these autoimmune conditions, or inflammatory prostate come up.

We can try to start treating the immune system or the symptoms but it comes back to the fact that we haven’t lived in accordance with the circadian rhythm. We do like discipline and routine. However, there is always this notion that once we have a good routine set up, sometimes what we like to do is do weird things. As human beings, we get together, stay up for an entire night, make a fire, dance, chant, put on music, and bang things.

It’s okay to do these things. You don’t have to live a hermit lifestyle because you can consider it the same way within this idea of acute versus chronic stress or response to it. you’ve lived a good life and now when you have this cool event that you’ve participated in, it’s also beneficial. Your system isn’t fragile and weak that it can’t handle this. It rises to the challenge and absorbs it.

Real Estate Investing Demystified | Daniel Tausan | Longevity

Longevity: Your system isn’t so fragile and weak that it can’t handle this. Rather, it rises to the challenge and absorbs it.


Let’s get to the next pillar.

I’ve been hearing this my whole life. If you laugh a lot, you’re going to live longer.

If you have more friends and you communicate, you’re going to live longer.

Good thing. I have a husband who makes me laugh a lot. Let’s talk about this a little bit. There’s anything to break down here.

You two hit the two major points. The temperament comes with the social contact and the people around you. You’re going to resemble the five closest people around you. We keep each other in check in a lot of ways. By nature of having this environment, it makes it comfortable to share. You’re laughing. You’re not wasting your mental space. Rather you’re looking for ways how to have more fun in the day.

For whatever reason, that has a certain type of neurochemistry. It’s brimming in terms of the inside of the cell, I don’t have the heavy-duty science to figure it out because it’s not. It is a chemical soup that’s happening in their brain. If you say neurotransmitter and a synapse, they take it as that’s good enough. The complexity that’s happening there is absurd. There’s a lot more to it than simply the synaptic or transmission.

I don’t know what it is, but there’s something to do with that connection of there’s a thirst for fun, excitement, and life. If you can look at the cell, there’s a little stream inside the cell. It’s called cytoplasmic streaming. I would wonder if someone is laughing in a positive state, if you were able to examine the cell at the time when they’re happy and laughing, is the stream roaring through there or is it faster? There is some physical manifestation of it. What it is, I don’t know.

You touched on it also as far as waking up in the morning. If you have something to do and you’re adding value, you’re more energetic to get up. You want to live longer if you’re there. You’re doing something that you’re enjoying. You’re feeling fulfilled. The mental part of it is tremendous. Any other points you want to touch on that topic before we move to the next one?

If someone is in a negative downward spiral, be careful not to put too much of your energy into that individual. Misery loves company is a saying and there’s a reason it’s a saying. You have to let the person find their path. That’s been something that’s created a challenge for my end as they seek to offer services to help people. Sometimes, someone needs to hit rock bottom before they snap out of it. They’re actively searching, “How far can I push my physiology? How bad can I get?” When they do hit the bottom, they’re a good testament to bring positivity around it. Be careful of allowing people to go through the journey that they need to go through.

You have to let the person find their path. Click To Tweet

This is a great topic. A lot of people are buying these machines.

Including our director of acquisition, Paul Hopkins, who keeps sending videos to me that he is cold plunging.

He is cold plunging every single morning.

We had a cold plunge with Daniel together. When you were talking about the five pillars, you were discussing longevity and health, and you talked about cold and how certain animals live in colder climates, and they’re larger. I thought, “How do we incorporate that into our lives?” We live in Florida now. We’re moving from Vancouver, which was colder. Does that mean we’re going to live less? In Florida, people live longer here. I’m not sure what the reason is but talk to us about that. Is it cold as a shock that you can bring in when you need it? Is it that people who live in colder climates live longer?

My family is going to love this because I grew up in Alberta. My family sent me a picture. It was minus 38 degrees Celsius.

Your dad has never felt a cold. He’s always inside the car, office, and home. He has never felt that shock.

You feel it when you’re gassing up. You don’t spend a lot of time outside.

We are curious to hear about this one. I wasn’t even expecting this one.

There’s a big difference between the individual experience in life and this population genetics that has a species evolving and what it likes. If you want to go live in a cold environment, you have to deal with it all the time. We like warmer temperatures. It’s easier to live in warmer temperatures and food grows in warmer temperatures. The food is plentiful in the warmer temperatures. When you go to India, and you throw a seed down, it starts growing.

There’s that challenge of, “If I go into this northern part of climate, can I survive there?” The Northern part of Europe and Iceland showcased to us that you can still, even after you’ve lived there for generations, have a centurion in that population. There’s an adequate amount of preparation. There’s an understanding of food preservation and the adequate amount of nutrition that a person needs to survive. They’re dealing with a cold and a chronic condition. It’s always all the time.

They also have this ludicrous idea, “I’m going to go in there and bathe in the ice water because I don’t have a shower and I want to clean up. What that does is it stimulates their system to have a lot better response to the chronic cold. We go to where you guys are at. Cold is a luxury. If you can provide cold for yourself, that would be phenomenal because you use it in that regard. You would use it as an acute stressor. The system can experience this stress and grow from it.

It does on a cellular level, which is interesting and careful, anytime you look up the science that is anything good for you, you will notice how quickly publications come up to say like, “There’s nothing to see here.” Take a look at spirituality. Everything is trying to tell you how this isn’t effective. How many studies were found effective? We can talk about that later.

There are reasons why the business side of things does that. I’ll back it up here for a second with the cool. I have to describe that within the cell you have a dam. It’s called the mitochondria. People like to call it the powerhouse of the cell, but it’s a reservoir. You keep shoving in your food that you burn into in terms of hydrogen potential.

As a human being, we have the ability to make energy go through one side. We make little energy molecules that we can use in the cell, but if we wanted to, we could shuttle this thing through an uncoupling protein that allows you to generate heat. If we’re in this scenario, where we are in this abundance and we’re eating a lot, exposure to cold is great because it allows you to move that massive dam that’s getting pushed up too much, but it’s about a spill. It might crack your dam and start leaking. You don’t want that. The cold allows you to dissipate that potential and allows you to generate heat.

It does that on every single cell. Whereas some animals have it restricted the human being from skin to bone to connect tissue to muscle to nervous tissue all exhibit a certain amount of protein. I might be off on the nervous tissue. There might be only in the supportive nervous tissue rather than the actual neurons. I would’ve to look it up. This is a wonderful thing. We have these databases of biological information in which we have done the work. This is why you can cough and say, “We know this. We know the human being has this expression pattern.”

A wonderful thing about today is we have these databases of biological formation in which we have done to work. Click To Tweet

On a hormonal level, a cold does something that no other therapy or treatment does. Cold is also the opposite. The cold is hot. Hot is a similar idea. It’ll act a little different than your system but putting yourself in a heat stress like the sauna in which you’re in there and you’re working with your heart rate, you’ve pushed past a little bit of your comfort zone and you’re like, “I did good. I hardly went up. I stayed with it. I worked, and I’m going to step out.

Something different is going to happen, not knock the cold but beneficial. Thermal therapy is like fasting. It’s not negotiable if you want to want to heal yourself or if you want that resilient type of health. Individuals say, “You guys don’t have a cold.” Does it get cold in the evening when you guys are in Naples?

In December and January, we felt a little bit cold.

Cold is a relative term. It’s not like you’re Pacific Northwest type of cold.

It’s chilly.

I wouldn’t even call it chilly. I’m chilly has been a different meaning to me for several years of living over there in Vancouver.

Maybe that’s what it means to rise with the sun. If you’re up at 5:30 and you’re out in the elements, your body will experience a different temperature than throughout the day, you might move away. You might take that daytime nap. This is still even without having a cold bucket of ways to expose yourself. What you see are weird instances of where the farmer, which you wouldn’t think is good. This man has plowed land and used his body like no other. He’s living to 100 and he’s smoking cigars on top. This guy is breaking the mold. Let’s talk to this gentleman. What’s going on? What’s he doing?

It’s more about putting your body through these shocks rather than living somewhere cold. These are the heat or cold shocks you’re talking about.

Being kind to the biology, if you did a minute, do a minute in five seconds the next day. Don’t go from zero to hero. Otherwise, you might have neuro restriction. You might lose a little bit of sensation. Stress is being kind to yourself. Progressive and gradual progression. Allow the body to adapt. Allow the mind to adapt. Don’t be like, “I’m a tough guy.”

The last pillar is digestion. We were going to say exercise, but it’s funny you touched on that. You’re like, “Walking is good enough.” I was going to get into HIIT workouts and all these different kinds of amazing things that you read about. You’re like, “I got to incorporate that into my life.” Walking is enough.

It’s enough, but it does feel good to be able to ski at 80.

Tennis is another one. They’ve got to be sharp to the hand-eye coordination.

That is high-intensity interval training if you think about it.

Let’s focus on digestion before getting back into it. We’ll have a couple of questions on exercise, but let’s touch on digestion. It’s interesting you call it digestion because your first pillar was diet. I’m excited about this one because I feel that I’ve had some digestive issues. I’ve gone and seen a gastrologist. I’ve tried all kinds of stuff, but it seems like something is not right with the way that my body digests certain types of foods. I was great on keto, but I was having some other issues. This digestion is fascinating. Please talk to us about it.

It’s a simple observation that we have here. In order to assimilate food or take an apple, chickpea, or lentil and be like, “I’m going to make this thing into Daniel. You’re going to make it into August. Ava is going to make it Ava.” We’re all taking the same initial substrates as a starting point. We have to expend energy to be like, “I’m going to get in return for my investment.” Every time I’m expending energy, there’s a cost to it because I’m sending molecular scissors to chop things up. As I send in the molecular scissors to chop things up, sometimes inadvertently, it chops up a little bit more than what I care for it to chop up.

The pancreas is this organ that is always under a low grade of regeneration because it produces paralytic enzymes that act like scissors to break up your food. This part tells us, “If you put something in that takes a lot of enzymes to break down, the person has to invest way more energy.” It’s economics at the end of the day. How much are you going to give out? You might get some back, but you have a limited tank now of what you can incorporate into yourself.

As soon as you said that, I thought about eating hot peppers, because the nutrition you get is minimal, but the way that it puts your body through it says a lot.

There’s a special thing about capsaicin, cayenne pepper, in particular, acting as a blood stimulant. It’s one of my secret remedies for a lot of problems. Every single food might have a different caveat. If we’re thinking about pure basics of, “I need to assimilate things into my building blocks,” digestion is expensive because we want to do it every day, or most days, out of the 365, at least 300 plus. It helps to add things to break things down before we’ve even ingested them. My favorite and I throw it almost on everything, is cumin.

This is the same idea as I mentioned before. There’s an old Indian lady. She’s eating rice and lentils. She has a cabinet of 30 spices. What are those spices doing? They’re aiding and facilitating the digestive process. A tiny amount of the liquor acts as a digestive. It stimulates the liver to help facilitate digestive processes.

This is another thing about dosages. Something can be beneficial at a small dose and detrimental if you go a tiny little bit over. This is something that, especially in the North American part of the world, has an issue with substance abuse. The other parts of the world have a way better time with it. It’s because it’s introduced to the children early on. It’s not held as taboo. It’s there. It’s observed. The person has it, whereas, in North America, it’s not allowed to drink to this sage. When I was four, I had a sip of beer. The moment I drank it, I go, “This is awful. This is terrible.” Did anything bad happen to me? No, not. It’s the same thing as a cigarette. That was my family’s approach. I’m like, “This is disgusting. How could you have it?”

This is another thing about dosages, a small dose can actually be detrimental if you just go a tiny bit over. Click To Tweet

That comes to the point where that dosage is key. Fermented foods are often touted as, “They’re great.” They have a different complete nutrient profile like the organic acids. They come predigested. That’s another key for our health because it makes it easier for us to assimilate that food. The more that you aid your digestion, you’ll notice how your sleep quota goes down. That’s the big part. This is why digestion takes such a high number up there. Sleep would be number one. You can’t go well without sleep. If you’re not assimilating your food properly or not easily, you’re going to have lots of issues.

There’s another part that’s key to fasting. It gives the system a break to reset if we send in things that we haven’t been that in alignment with because it’s complicated as to why some groups can get away with eating certain foods and other people can’t. If they eat a little bit, they have problems. Beans are a wonderful choice for a lot of people, but sometimes, they have to start with a small amount and gradually increase how much they have. Otherwise, they’ll have massive bloating and problem solve. For myself, never. Beans are my favorite food. Nothing satiates more than kidney beans do. The take-home message is how everything you’re cooking can incorporate this fennel Greeks and the cumins.

We touched on the five pillars. Let’s talk about Timeline Sciences. Let’s do an exercise. Let’s say a client comes to you for their needs. I’m not sure if you help vast groups of clients or individually, but let’s say for this exercise, an individual comes and sees you. For example, August comes in. He has got some digestive issues and fat around the belly. The sleep is not that great. Walk us through the journey that this person goes through. You don’t have to go over everything, but I’m assuming those five pillars are what you’re going to use to have this patient or your client see where they’re there. What would be your recommendations for this individual utilizing the five pillars of health that you told us about?

I do have to be cautious with the word patient because there’s a certain level of legality there. I don’t want to get targeted by any of the big pharma. I do exactly that. I work with the individual. Timeline Sciences is present to walk you through your individual and unique timeline. That’s the play on it. I’m here to act as your scribe to put you through all the questions that you may or may not know to get you back on a healthy track.

I use the pillars there to put a person on a timeline that’s going to be thriving and healthy. Because there’s so much of it, it always comes off as personalized as possible. What I see as the most relevant piece of information is that a person can take some eight. Transform within the next little time period, whether it’s a week or two, come back and begin to incorporate more.

It doesn’t necessarily mean that everybody who comes and sees you is going to be advised, prescribed, or salted to do cold plunges. If it’s part of your pillar, doesn’t that mean everybody should do some cold plunge or a cold shock? Do you still select who should do it?

I 100% select when and who should do it. It’s not that everyone should go into the cold. If you’re in a fragile state, I would not recommend that you go into the cold. You’re not ready for the cold. A gentleman did all the work. He came to me at about 80% where he dealt with his lupus. He got a bad diagnosis. It’s a terrible set of news. He was left to his devices. They’re like, “No, you’re stuck with this for the rest of your life.” He’s a stubborn man. He’s like, “No, I’ll deal with this. I’m going to go and change my entire life. I will fix this.” He did 80%, where he had no more problems, flare-ups, and issues.

He met me and I told him, “This is good to talk.” I was fascinated by what he’d done. He treated his diet as if it were the most restrictive thing ever. He brought it back down to basics. He slowly started introducing things, and realized, “Anytime I have ice cream, I have problems. Now, I touch ice cream.” I gave him my protocol for cold, how to go about it, and how to do it. He took it up religiously.

When somebody gets to a stable situation, all those five pillars are incorporated, including the cold, is that fair to say?

That’d be fair. When you’re in a stable situation and you’re looking for more, you are incorporating all those five pillars.

Fasting, for example. If somebody is agile, you’re not going to put them on a three-day fast.

For three days, no, but I put them right away on intermittent fasting, which I would say, is not intermittent fasting. Intermittent fasting is another word for saying the basic default way of living as a human being respectful to your physiology.

The way I understand intermittent fasting is that what’s happening is the good cells start eating up the weak cells because your body has time to digest everything.

It’s not necessarily that the weak cells, but what happens is the same way a leaf withers. A cell will wither. Will an immune cell come by and gobble it up or not? It is an important consequence for us. On this gross anatomical level, we don’t want these senescent cells hanging around. If you’re constantly eating, the immune cells can’t get the signal to do its work. It won’t eat the cell. Not only that, but the cells on the inside, if you’re constantly eating, don’t get the signal to do their own cleaning process. It’s this process of autophagy.

Auto is in regards to the self. Phagy is this eating process. It’s the term for the phagocyte. It is the macrophage that comes in and gobbles it up. If we’re in a constant state of eating and we’re eating from 8:00 and you wake up with food, snacks, lunch, dinner, and you’re eating snacks up until you go to bed, there’s no time for the metabolism to shift from assimilation and nutrient absorption into detoxification, autophagy, reparative, and regenerative processes.

If you never activate autophagy, the self-eating or devouring never happens.

The consequences are exactly that. You’re going to come to advanced aging. It’s going to come faster and you’re going to have a lot more problems earlier on. In North America, from what I’ve got to see in terms of data sets, 55 is this age where it manifests for did someone does the right thing or not. It’s hard to, once you’ve been hit with the aging stick, reverse it all because you lose hepatic ear and liver mass. You lose a bunch proportionate of it. It’s not trivial to restimulate it to go because all these niches within our bodies are depleted.

What age is that Daniel?

It’s 55 for the person who’s not doing good. I also have 80-year-olds that have a blood profile of 30-year-olds, which they’ve done phenomenally.

When a client comes and sees you, what tests do you do? Is it DNA or blood testing? What is a test that you need to figure out more about?

It’s my way of offering a service to connect you with science. You can bring me any molecular test on the planet. What I will do is evaluate their molecular test and try to communicate to you what that means for you. There are a lot of companies. They have great products and they have to be reserved in liability with their algorithms. Their algorithm is you have about a 51% to 60% chance that it might be appropriate for you. What if you’re aligning that 40% and sometimes, they have an easy one? Maybe it’s 90%.

In these biological ages and genetic tests, there hasn’t been any easy access for people to be like, “I want to talk to someone about this. If you want to come to talk to me, we can go through the health aspect of it. We can go through a consulting of science if there’s something more nitty gritty, whether you’re looking for targets.

If you’d like me to analyze data, that’s another service I offer. If you don’t know what data to get, you come to see me and we talk about what one you might want to get. If you have a gastro condition, a joint condition, or a neural condition, there are different blood panels you can get that might help you get information of what you can do in terms of lifestyle, nutrition, and different healing modalities that you can participate in.

The most fascinating thing about all this is that you can reverse your biological age. It’s not too late.

My next question here is about the blue zones, centenarians, or people living up to 150 years old. One of the first investors of Facebook is talking about living to be 150. If money wasn’t a consideration and one of these billionaires who are trying to live forever, we’ll learn from what they do. It’s always the wealthy that try things and experiment with things, and everyday people get to use those things. If somebody came to you, money wasn’t an issue and they could throw as much money as possible to their head and they’re somewhat healthy and middle-aged between 40 and 55, what would be your recommendation there?

If they’re trying to be the frontier, they’d have to have an idea of what is it in the molecular sense that is the biggest driver for aging. If a billionaire was to go about it, the take home isn’t the nutrients. The reality is the better you are at playing, I don’t eat and you’re able to, with a tiny little drop, scavenge 100% of that material, a lot more efficient system than a system that’s constantly needed, I need to see this nutrient every single day.

The component that they’d have to strive for and this is the obvious evidence is first, we have to address the elephant in the room. The second one and the one that seems to be tied in with the ancient wisdom that’s been passed down as well as the evidence that’s always coming back up, is this ability for the body to use oxygen and not do damage to itself.

As we make that dam-like hydrogen potential that we have to generate energy, the oxygen there is the acceptor. When you breathe in, you breathe in oxygen and you breathe out carbon dioxide, and that’s not the same oxygen. The oxygen that is going in is getting converted into water. That carbon dioxide is from the food. It’s ridiculous that the fact that you’re taking gases and you as a living being are making a different element of water.

The way that we use oxygen ends up burning up the system itself. We think, “Aging is happening. Why does the cell need to eat itself?” It is because there are oxidation processes that start stripping electrons and little bits away from their surroundings. We have to constantly do the upkeep of DNA protection enzymes. We have these enzymes that function to burden this antioxidant stress. We have sensors that function on this cusp of antioxidant detection.

If you can train your system to be efficient or competent at utilizing oxygen, who do we look to for that? You see the athletes. The athletes are doing good on a cellular level, but they don’t do good on a physiological level. They end up getting strokes and cardiac problems. The athletes don’t live as long, but their cells look phenomenal. When you have individuals who are active, they’ve done something in their life. They’re climbing mountains. They live in the mountainside. For example, in the [00:54[F1] :50], that’s not part of the blue zones.

Blue zones are cool because they’ve brought some attention. These people are doing something right. There are plenty of other places on the planet where people have made it quite far. It is in the mountainous valleys that end up being prosperous for longevity. If a billionaire came and was like, “You’re on the frontier. Let’s spend the money and get technology.” What we’d want is to bring in the science as best we can. It gives us knowledge. We’re not believing in things that we’re doing based on what we know. That’s what science can do for you.

The more we have in terms of technology that allows us to give insight into what’s happening on the inside, we can make those decisions to keep that inside of a particular way and make adjustments along the way. What I offer is, for this new age, a revolutionary preemptive approach. The preemptive approach is you get the blood test when you’re healthy. There’s a lot more in the blood than cholesterol. This is why these proteomic metabolomic panels are so good to get when you’re in a healthy state.

There’s something important to simply be said that there is no better control than yourself. The first pillar of science is you make an observation and you have to write it down in some way to communicate it. You get the knowledge. The next one is you have to take a measurement. That’s going to be your evidence. That is what is testable.

If you don’t have a control, meaning a control value to compare to, your measurements are useless. You can compare from one person to the other. That’s great and dandy. We can do that. It’s useful. When it comes to you and your individual health, in order to compare a brain, we need 300 average brains. We need to average 300 brains so that you can compare one brain to another. This goes to show that if you have your blood test at age 30, 35 40, and 45, and at age 60, something happens. You have decade’s worth of information about what’s going on.

Somebody can come in and scare you into a bad protocol, treatment, or decision based on a test that’s not good like D dimer for a clotting factor. That thing will go up if you go up a flight of stairs too fast. You’ll get injected with an anticoagulant ASAP if that thing is high. All of a sudden, they’re rushing to get anticoagulants in.

There’s an importance there in having that information for yourself because it costs a couple of hundred dollars to get that blood panel. The investment pays for itself quadruple, if not an insurmountable amount more because it gives you that knowledge to be able to work in the future. This is where the parental approach is going to become a cultural mind shift. People are getting it as something that they’re excited about and that they want to know rather than like, “I’ll get it. I’ll let medicines help me when the time comes.”

Danny, we could talk to you all day long. We’ve got a couple more questions here before we get to the next segment of our show, but we’re going to bring you back to talk about more items here.

One question I wanna dive into is genetics versus lifestyle. There’s often a debate about genetics versus lifestyle when it comes to longevity. How much do our genes determine our lifespan? To what extent can lifestyle choices override that genetic disposition?

I’ve met some people who genetically did not look good. I’m like, “You were not dealt a good hand with genetics.” They look frail. You see some people in their specimen. You can tell they’re going to live forever and you got everybody in between. Talk to us about it. Is it a fallacy, this idea of right means and born with it, or the way that we live our lives? It’s the way our brains are formed. Physically, we’re not formed the best, but our brain helps us not be more structured and not have sugar cravings. You might end up living longer even though you are frail. Talk to us about that.

There is good news and bad news. The good news is if you like self-responsibility, it’s great. If you want to scapegoat with genetics, I don’t have good news for you. There are two classes for genetics. There are clear inborn errors of metabolism. For those individuals, it’s a massive truncation of life. The most severe of the genetic components is a disease called progeria. It’s fascinating because it’s one nucleotide. It’s a code in the DNA. You have the most devastating advanced aging disease that we know of.

If we exclude all the clearly easy-to-identify genetic ones, and you become an adult, that’s about 95% of the planet. About 95% of people have a complete genome that lets you do all the superpowers that come along with the genome, the growth hormones, and the insulins. The way you get to know yourself is the determining factor of how long and how well you will live. Did you push your cardiovascular system and develop a high VO2 max? It’s okay if it comes down later in life, but did you ever do it? You didn’t. You didn’t get the benefits side then. Did you put yourself through a mentally strenuous lifestyle? This means you have to take on a lot, be busy, know how to compartmentalize things and deal with emotions. You didn’t. You don’t get the benefits of that.

There’s this skill in living as a human being. It’s tied in with these signals that keep coming back to you. For me, looking like this and being healthy is not an option. It’s that I’m sensitive. If I don’t do the stretching and the exercise that I do, I start getting pains everywhere. You can say, “Look at him. He’s a genetic specimen.” In my genetics, problems keep coming up everywhere.

I take myself as an experiment where I recognize how much of a monkey I am. I’ll put M&Ms beside me. I don’t M&Ms anymore, but this is back when I was dealing with the sugar. I’ll put nuts out of reach. You’re there working and doing your thing. It’s easy. I’ve moved the M&Ms away and I put the nuts there. There’s a level of government terms with understanding how much of the biology does play a role in ruling us. That goes to another question. What is the U that’s piloting or doing the biology where you can play this introspective portion? This is what it means to live a human life. You’re not an organism and a creature that’s ruling around. You’re being and you get to choose how you’re being on a day-to-day basis.

We want to talk to you about a bunch of other things, but we’ll do it if we’re on our show. The last topic is an interesting topic. We are good friends with Daniel’s brother, George. He’s even visited us here in Florida, but there’s a topic, me and him, discussed. Let’s talk about sex. It’s part of our lives as human beings. That’s how we reproduce. It is an enjoyable part of life. There’s this concept of preserving orgasm, particularly for males as a way to health and longevity.

The time that I was introduced to this concept was in boxing where a lot of pro boxers go into training camp three months before their fight in most cases. A lot of times, they don’t have their wives or girlfriends nearby. Their abstinence from sex and preserving themselves for the fight on the field are much more stronger and powerful for the fight. Some people say that’s not the case and some boxers have sex the same day before the fight because that calms them down and they’ve been great. Talk to us about this. I’m not saying the term correctly. You might have a better scientific term for it, but preserving yourself from orgasm, I’m not sure what it’s called.

Semen retention is the term that’s floating around to highlight that. We can separate that right away from semen retention and orgasm because the male is capable of having an orgasm without ejaculating. That’s good news. It does take skill. The man has to practice and work towards getting to the orgasm and holding the sensation so that the ejaculate passes. Once that signal passes, you can continue experiencing and enjoying the orgasm without ever losing the semen.

That’s good news if someone cares to practice it. Otherwise, simply don’t have it. There’s a lot of accuracy to this. Not only the evidence showcasing it for the cognitive aspect of how a person’s sharper, but the longer that they’ve gone without it or ejaculating. They’re sharper in a cognitive Tesla way. The other aspect of it is it’s a track resource. Like digestion, sperm is heavily intensive in terms of minerals and resource content. If every single day you’re ejaculating, your body has to constantly keep sending and shelling resources down to the area to keep doing this process.

The part that is important is to take a look at what our ancestors have left for us in terms of knowledge. Both Chinese and Indian call it mythos. In their texts, they’ve given this. They both have words for this type of energy that’s associated with kidneys and nervous system as it relates to semen retention. It’s extremely detailed.

It goes to the point of saying, “For the young man in his twenties, he can do it every other day. For the man in his 30s, He has to wait.” I might be messing up the days here, but it’s a general trend. As you get older, you’re allowed less. Somewhere around your 50s and 60s, you’re ejaculating once a month to twice a month max. It’s something along those lines in terms of it not burdening the system and causing you to drain too much of this particular energy they’re talking about.

For all the men out there who have a ferocious female that they need to satisfy, they need to figure out how to not ejaculate and have the orgasm if they want to continue having fun with the ladies because the ladies are in a different boat altogether. They get the pleasure of having orgasms without the consequence of the loss of a critical resource that the body needs to produce.

Overall, for a healthy male lifestyle, semen retention should be part of that exercise if you’re living more on that supreme being type of lifestyle for a man in your opinion.

There’s a reason why. It’s in many of the religious texts. It’s not there on like, “On a whim, don’t do it.” It’s there as a biological representation. If you’re constantly doing it, there’s a detriment and tax that you’re going to have to pay the human tax. You have to appreciate and respect the biology there, not enable the compulsion. Deal with the compulsion. a lot of young men are already fighting that compulsion with easy access to it.

Let’s get to the next segment of our show.

Daniel, It’s called the Ten Championship Rounds to Financial Freedom. Whatever comes top of mind. Are you ready?

Hit me.

First question, who’s been the most influential person in your life?

It’s my brother. I’m grateful I have a brother. I call him my younger brother because of the way he behaves.

What is the number one book you would recommend?

On health in particular, I’ll take a step back. My number one book I recommend, which is often a gift I give people is Seven Hermetic Principles. It’s a fantastic book if you want to know about science without ever having to do years of science and having it is better.

If you had the opportunity to travel back in time, what advice would you give your younger self?

Stop thinking so much. You’re overthinking it. Do something else. A big part of your mental well-being is doing right. I like swimming in the cold water with my dog. I’m not thinking.

You could switch up the next question and make it more of an investment in your body and health.

What’s the best investment you’ve ever made for your health, body, body, mind, and longevity?

It’s been adopting breathing exercises. I’m treating breathing as an exercise. The more breathing exercises I’ve done, the more I’ve realized I can get access to parts of my body. There’s this subtle energy of breathing. I can’t communicate to you this subtle energy, but I can tell you what my progression was towards it. For some of the subtle energies, it took me several years to finally feel it where I didn’t have to muscular push through it. I calmly and easily can now go into that area of my body. By doing so, I completely alleviate any congestion in my nose. That was the fact that I kept exploring and pushing into this breathwork. It was my homework.

It’s the same thing on the reverse side.

What’s the worst investment you’ve ever made in your health?

We’re at something like a billion if not a trillion X, the amount of radiation that our grandparents were exposed to. I love information, technology, learning, and being at the forefront of things. It’s taken way more nights of sleep than it should. I stay on it. I stay connected. The times when I disconnect and I do the proper living or treat myself like a human being is always awarded. Technology is something I work to draw healthy boundaries. I get overwhelmed with how much I’ve taken on and my health will suffer at the end. It’s not that I’m perfect by any means. Yeah. No,

For the next question, we can have it for fun if you want.

How much would you need in the bank to retire? What’s your number?

It doesn’t matter how much money is in the bank. I’m always going to work.

Daniel, if you could have dinner with someone dead or alive, who would it be?

It’s Leonardo da Vinci. He had so much nuance to what he saw before his time, what he left in terms of writing, his fascinating insights, and the works he did from anatomy to painting. The anatomy alone, I could sit and talk to him about being blessed.

If you weren’t doing what you’re doing now, what would you be doing now?

I’d be an engineer. It’s way easier. Biology was a mistake. With engineering, if I have a product, I’m happy with it, and I can leave.

This is an important question, even in academia, research, and science, sometimes people get fixated on intricacies and sometimes people get things going. Even in the world of science, being a go-getter is helpful. This is a great question.

Daniel, book smarts or street smarts?

Without a doubt, it’s street smarts. I’ve had people come into the laboratory where they’re geniuses on paper and they can’t do the most simple protocol. They get flustered and attempt for, you’re like, “Yeah, he’ll get it this time.” He can bring someone in that has no clue of anything that he’s doing. Give him the protocol and show him how to use a pipette, he knocked it out of the park.

This is coming from a scientist guys.

It’s easier to teach the book than it is the street. Let’s put it that way. If you have the street, the book is always there.

Daniel, last question. If you had $1 million in cash and you had to make one investment, what would it be?

I’m going to say real estate. That’s going the direction it’s going. I would put it into real estate without any bit of likeness. I am stuck behind a computer and working remotely from the time being, which is wonderful. I can’t wait to grow some food. I can’t wait to have a wall of green beans. That’s what I’m looking forward to.

My goal of something that keeps me trekking forward is I want that plot of land. I want to manage my soil and grow my vegetables. Nothing commercial or anything. I want to have something for myself and my community, where I’m going to grow a bunch of things, but you can’t do that unless you have real estate. There’s also peace of mind to be able to come home, sit, and be like, “I’m home. This is my little spot.” You make that paradise.

I appreciate you being here.

I appreciate it. Thank you so much.

We’re going to have you back.

Daniel, let the readers know the best way that they can reach you, please.

For your viewers. I’ll give you guys the easiest way to access me, which is DanielTaushan@Proton.me. I will check that email. You will get a response from me if you message me through that. Otherwise, TimelineSciences.com. The website will go through some iterations as I get help as a scientist, and business side of things as I’m learning that. If you go to the contact page, you can contact me directly.

Thanks, Daniel.

Thank guys.
