In another awesome episode of the Flowgrade Show, I present to you one of the most charismatic characters of the Biohacking Universe. Dr. Olli Sovijärvi does not only treat patients using the most advanced techniques at the Antioxidant Clinic in Helsinki. He is also one of the authors of the Biohacker's Handbook, Organiser of the Biohacker Summit and surely the nicest power-lifter whom I've ever come across. Olli and I talk about the causes of chronic stress and the most effective methods to live a balanced life even with family, kids, multiple highly demanding projects, a full-time job and going to saunas with cold-sensitive Germans. You will learn about Olli's nutrition hacks, his ideal workout routine, how he meditates, what kind of carbs he likes and how he can still smile at the end of each day, even with his highly demanding lifestyle.
