Helen Irlen is an internationally recognized educator, researcher, therapist, scholar and expert in the area of visual-perceptual disorders. Helen discovered Irlen Syndrome over 20 years ago, after establishing that individuals showed a marked improvement in their reading ability when reading material was covered by colored acetate sheets. In the years since, Helen has taught thousands, from schoolchildren to NFL players, to utilize colors to boost brain function. Helen is a regular on BPR and on this episode of Bulletproof Radio, she sits down with Dave to talk about Irlen Syndrome, visual perception and performance, ideal light settings, behavioral problems stemming from light, issues with fluorescent lights, Irlen lenses and more.

While most people assume we will peak when we are young, my new book, SUPER HUMAN: The Bulletproof Plan to Age Backward and Maybe Even Live Forever, reveals there is another way. It is possible to make changes on the sub-cellular level to transform how you look and feel now, get healthier and disease-proofed with every decade, and dramatically extend your lifespan. Said differently, I wrote this book to help you have better sex, develop super brain power, avoid disease and live until 180.

Live better now and live longer later. Get reading.
