Joining us today is Dr. Mickra Hamilton, Co-Founder/CEO Apeiron Center for Human Potential. In this episode Ben and Dr. Hamilton dive into all things capnography. She takes Ben through a series of tests, then evaluates his overall state and measures how stress approximation events affect his body. They take a deep look into optimize the mechanics of our breath, ways to improve your heart rate variability & MORE. She opens up about the Apeiron Center and the ground breaking research they are doing. Find out how her mission is creating a new paradigm for what is possible for human performance and potential.
