Introducing a Limitless Mind with Dr Andrew Hill
This week’s interview is with Dr Andrew Hill, the founding director and lead neurotherapist at Peak Brain Institute, specialising in evidence-based brain training; Dr Hill is also the lead neuroscientist at truBrain, a nootropic designed for optimal cognitive performance; he holds a PhD in cognitive neuroscience from UCLA’s department of psychology and continues to do research on attention and cognitive performance and his research methodologies include EEG, QEEG, and ERP…yes, he’s a bit smart! 🙂
If you have ever wanted to know how to hack your mind with alternate therapies such as PIR HEG for migraine pain and want to know a little more about nootropics, then this interview is for you!
I first got in contact with Dr Hill when I was taking truBrain and I had a few questions about it. We started emailing back & forth & he mentioned migraines, which as you know, being a migraine sufferer, I was very interested in. He then agreed to come on to my podcast for a chat about all of these things.
I did this interview with Dr Hill prior to my trip to LA & then was fortunate enough to catch up with him when I was there last year for Dave Asprey’s 2015 Bulletproof conference made a special little visit to his new clinic – the Peak Brain Institute where I was lucky enough to get hooked up with the latest technology (you can see it in this video). A wireless neurofeedback machine that read my brain waves…ummmm…not so good!! A lot to work on & improve there – but that’s another post! Ha ha
In Part 1 of this interview, Dr Hill shares A LOT of information about cognitive performance and his work with migraine’s.
I hope you enjoy all the information on how to hack your mind…
