Longer or better? Some people want to live longer. For others, how they live is important, not how long.
But what if you didn't have to make that choice - if you could choose both?
Join in for biohackers – for people who want to improve their well-being and quality of life so much that they are ready to experiment with themselves. Using scientific advances, bio-enthusiasts have found doable tasks to start now to make life longer and more fulfilling. So BOTH longer AND better.
Medium in the article "Top 15 Bio Enthusiasts to Follow (Top 15 biohackers to follow)” the most recognizable people are mentioned – guinea pigs. One of them is Anthony DiClementi (Anthony DiClementi), who, while dealing with his health problems, started practicing bioenthusiasm. In this FireNation in the podcast file Diklementi provides recommendations for improving well-being, energy and general quality of life.
DiClementi agrees that most of us are constantly pressed for time because our calendars are jam-packed with to-dos. However, to live better and longer, our health and lifestyle should be at the top of our priorities, freeing up time for activities that are important to our well-being.
One of them is sunbathing. Diklementi considers the fear of being in the sun to be one of the biggest mistakes of the health protection system. He explains that sunbathing is very important for good health, not baking.
Diklementi has a scientific basis for this. The 2017 Nobel Prize in Psychology or Medicine was jointly awarded to Geoffrey Hall (Jeffrey C. Hall), to Michael Rosbash (Michael Rosbash) un Maiklam Jangam (Michael W. Young) “on the research of molecular mechanisms controlling circadian rhythms". Namely, our body's 24-hour circadian rhythm is set by the sun. In other words, a biological clock that "helps regulate the cycles of sleeping, eating, hormonal activity, blood pressure, as well as body temperature." (Article about the Nobel Prize)
DiClementi's next essential piece of advice: "The best dietary improvement is reduction." Namely, not what we maintain we add, but from what we refuse. He teaches that we must get rid of what causes immunogenic and allergic reactions in our body. These reactions cause inflammation at the cellular level, which leads to autoimmune diseases and syndrome of increased intestinal wall permeability. The three main foods to avoid (or at least minimize), according to DiClementi, are alcohol, processed dairy and grains.
So what's your preferred meal? Here are Diklementi's top three recommendations:
- one avocado, a teaspoon of olive oil, a pinch of pink Himalayan salt, a teaspoon of nutritional yeast - carve the avocado, cut it or squeeze it, add the other ingredients and enjoy;
- a large salad of various vegetables, including green leafy and green fibrous vegetables (for example, broccoli), 1-3 tablespoons of olive oil, a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar - mix the oil with the vinegar, pour it over the cut vegetables, and feast with pleasure;
- two glasses of coconut milk, a serving of good plant-based protein powder, a teaspoon of sprouted chia (divide) seeds, any food additives of your choice - we whip it like a milkshake, enjoy it with pleasure.
Diklementi emphasizes that the most important thing is the organism reset. Years of exposure to toxins and pathogens have weakened our immune system, negatively affecting our well-being. Drinking alkaline water is one of the biohacker techniques reset organism.
Research conducted in China suggests that "alkaline water can be used as an adjunctive therapy for hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and hyperlipidemia." In other words, it can treat high blood pressure, high fat content in the blood, as well as diabetes.
in New York in the study discovered that “alkaline water instantly changes the molecular structure of pepsins, completely deactivating them. In addition, it regulates acid levels well. As a result, alkaline water has a good therapeutic effect on patients suffering from stomach juices regurgitate the disease”. Thus, instead of invasive medicine or surgery, patients suffering from this disease can be treated with alkaline water.
Hydration (maintaining enough water in the body) is very important, especially after physical activity when we sweat and lose a lot of fluid. Since physical activity is necessary for improving well-being, it is important to properly rehydrate after exercise. One indicator of fluid level is blood viscosity - how thick or liquid it is. In order for our blood to flow freely, it must be fluid enough. Researchers have found "a significant difference in viscosity in the body's bloodstream depending on whether high-pH electrolyte water or plain purified water is used to rehydrate fluid levels after intense exercise." Namely, after physical activity, the fluid level was restored better with alkaline than with ordinary purified water.
It doesn't matter which one biohacking techniques you choose, consuming alkaline water is a doable task that you can start now to positively impact your well-being and longevity.
