Ep22: The ‘Limitless’ Drug Is Here…Introducing Qualia | with Dr. Daniel Stickler

Qualia is quite possibly the most revolutionary product I’ve come across in my decade-long quest of personal development and self-optimization. It’s as close as you’ll ever get to experiencing the ‘Limitless’ drug. Yes…it’s that good. I’ve been experimenting with it behind-the-scenes for several months now, and I’m finally coming out of the closet to share it with you because I’m now thoroughly convinced this product delivers exactly what it promises, and more.


In today’s episode I have an in-depth conversation about why Qualia works so well and is so effective in increasing focus, concentration, empathy, reducing anxiety, and simply improving the human experience with Dr. Daniel Stickler, the medical director at Neurohacker Collective, the company that created Qualia.

Dr. Stickler and I dive into understanding what really fuels your brain from a nutritional standpoint and why supplementation shouldn’t be the answer if you’re constantly experiencing procrastination, brain fog, anxiety, and you have trouble focusing. We talk about the types of foods that can help promote (and inhibit) your creative abilities, the different types of diets (e.g Vegan, Paleo, etc) and how they can help or hinder your ability to focus, and then we break down how Qualia was formulated and why it has a much higher success rate than most other nootropics and smart drugs on the market.

That’s right…the ‘Limitless’ drug is finally here. And here’s what’s even cooler, you have the chance to win a 1-month supply!

Guest Bio:

Facebook|Twitter|Instagram|Apeiron Center

Dr. Daniel Stickler is Medical Director of Neurohacker Collective, bringing decades of forward thinking medical knowledge in wellness optimization and whole systems science to our team.

Dr. Stickler is a future-focused visionary and a thought leader in human potential. He is the cofounder of the Apeiron Center for Human Potential and the Apeiron Academy. Disheartened by our current “sick care” approach to health, Dr. Stickler created Human Potential Medicine- an integrated, biospherical systems-approach that combines the scientific grounding and expertise of modern medicine with leading-edge genetic/epigenetic science and neuro-psychophysiological modalities to expand human capacity. He also established the Apeiron Academy, which offers advanced education to a tribe of like-minded individuals determined to shift the health & wellness paradigm from the current sick-care model to one of optimized human potential.

Dr. Stickler entered medical school with a vision of helping people create an optimized life and found very quickly that the training focused predominantly on treating disease to postpone our stepwise progression to death. This realization was the catalyst for a several decade journey to create a new way of living. An opportunity to one promote youthful longevity and the potential for limitless life.
