Biohacking for Everyone

1. Sun exposure Sun exposure is pivotal for reaching optimal health: it helps regulate our circadian rhythm (energy and sleep) and hormone production, especially when sunlight hits the skin or eyes without protection (sunscreen, hats & sunglasses). How: Get some sun in the morning, before the peak UV ray production midday. Let the sun hit your skin for 15 – 30 mins without any protection. 2. Meditation Bringing mindfulness into your life creates time and space in your busy day-to-day schedule. Rather than stressing about your never-ending to-do list, meditating forces you to be present. How: Start small, say 5 minutes a day and gradually work up to 30 mins, if you want. Focusing on your breath calms the mind very quickly. If you find your mind wondering (which is totally normal!), just bring it back to how you’re breathing. 3. Intermittent fasting Intermittent fasting gives the body an opportunity to deep clean organs and detoxify by extending the period of not consuming food. Without any food in your system, your mitochondria has the opportunity to clean out toxins from pollution, cleaning products, food, products used on your skin, etc. Giving your body time to do a clean sweep allows the organs and mitochondria to function…

Ashwagandha: Ancient Medicine for Modern Adrenals

By Dr. Beth Baldwin Over the past few years, dozens of Moon Milk recipes have appeared on various culinary and wellness blogs. These beautifully colorful and fragrant bedtime drinks are a trendy twist on the traditional Ayurvedic preparation of warm milk with an adaptogenic herb, usually Ashwagandha, given at bedtime to promote restorative sleep. Cow, coconut or nut milk may be used, and recipes often include other herbs to help promote sleep and alleviate stress, such as nutmeg, chamomile, skullcap or lavender. Variations range from a more traditional Golden Milk with turmeric and warming spices featured on Bon Appetit, to the beautifully fragrant Vanilla Rose Moon Milk, to the visually stunning Mermaid Latte made with blue matcha. For over 3000 years, Ashwagandha has been used as a “Rasayana” or rejuvenator within Ayurvedic medicine, to promote youthful vigor, muscle strength and endurance Moon Milk is just one way to take Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), an Ayurvedic botanical medicine that is enjoying a renaissance for addressing the health issues that accompany chronic stress. For over 3000 years, Ashwagandha has been used as a “Rasayana” or rejuvenator within Ayurvedic medicine, to promote youthful vigor, muscle strength and endurance [1].  Similarly, in Western herbalism, Ashwagandha is…

Glycine – A Small Molecule with a Big Impact on Sleep

By Dr. Kate Placzek Glycine has a calming effect on the brain – it helps you wind down and prepare for sleep. Its role as an inhibitory neurotransmitter has been unfolding over many years of ongoing research efforts. Easily one of the most versatile amino acids, glycine serves as a building block to proteins (collagen, the most abundant protein in our body, is one-third glycine), and is heavily utilized for the production of heme, DNA and RNA synthesis, glutathione formation, and for enriching the body’s capacity for methylation reactions [1] [2]. Sleep Problems People need sleep. It is our basic human need. Too many of us experience sleep problems. Laying there restless, counting sheep, watching the hostile glow of the green numbers, fearing the absence of sleep – this dreaded scenario of sleep-deprived desperation is all too familiar. Needless to say, sleep issues have become a pervasive health problem, and research shows that lack of sleep affects everything from mental competence to increased risk of chronic diseases and cancer. Glycine Promotes Sleep Without Altering Sleep Architecture When human volunteers who have continuously experienced unsatisfactory sleep were given 3 g glycine before bedtime, their sleep improved [3]. Using polysomnography, a type of…

What Is Cortisol? A Hormone Crucial To Your Health & Survival

Let’s face it: cortisol gets a bad rap these days. “I have high cortisol.” “I have low cortisol.” “My cortisol it out-of-whack.” You’ve no doubt heard this all before or said it yourself. So in an effort to decode cortisol once and for all, I decided to feature a wildly popular previous guest of mine—the guy who personally helps me and my wife manage our own hormones and has helped countless listeners of mine with their own anti-aging and natural hormone management protocols. His name is Dr. Craig Koniver. Dr. Koniver was a guest on the episode “How To Get Your Own Vitamin and NAD IVs, The Truth About Umbilical Stem Cells, Peptide Injections & Much More With Dr. Craig Koniver.” He has been practicing performance medicine for over 18 years and is the founder of Koniver Wellness in Charleston, South Carolina. Not satisfied with the disease-based model of modern medicine, Dr. Koniver seeks to help his clients optimize their health and performance through time-tested, nutrient and science-driven protocols that are the cutting-edge of medicine. He is the founder and creator of the patent-pending FastVitaminIV® as well as re-engineering the NAD+ IV protocols, now called Brain Refuel™. Dr. Koniver’s client…

Morning Ritual Practice

Morning Ritual Practice The Unbeatable Mind morning ritual is not like any other morning ritual I have seen.  It is another secret weapon of ours, so please be sure to enact this practice asap. The morning ritual has us engage our day in a “One Day, One Life” manner.  We start each day with gratitude and a positive mindset.  We contemplate our 3p’s, One Thing Mission and Stand. We will tweak our planned actions for the day to ensure alignment with these… then engage your body and mind in box breathing, movement, and visualization. The morning ritual is a complete five mountain integrated training session, which you will learn more about soon.  After just a few weeks of doing the practice, you will notice big changes in your focus, energy, and positivity all day long.  Let’s look at the steps: Morning Ritual Process Step 1. Drink a large glass of water (or two) and begin five minutes of box breathing. Step 2 After box breathing, continue deep diaphragmatic breathing, and contemplate your 3P’s, One Thing and Stand… with your journal, ask yourself these empowering questions: What and whom am I grateful for today? (Write down what comes up. Cultivate an attitude of…

It’s exciting to think that we live in times of the dismantling of popular beliefs and the reinvention of scientific concepts. In the age of personalized nutrigenomics, and knowing more about food and its effects on us, being on a “diet” seems rather ‘old-school’. We now know that the body fluxes based on genetic variants, environmental triggers, microbiome spheres of influence, and other mental-emotional exposures, all of which add to the greater eating context. With ‘supplements,’ our sophistication has been ramped up and now we understand that it’s more about targeting pathways, modulating processes, and creating balance through specific blends of nutrients rather than simply “supplementing” the diet with what we think we might be lacking based on symptoms. We are getting smarter with respect to how intelligent these nutrients truly are and act in our bodies. We live in exciting times of reinvention. 🌈✨ #repost @deannaminnich #nutrition #DNA #nutrigenomics #health #biohack #fitness #supplement #vitamins #dnatest #ancestry #23andMe #biohacking #beforeandafter #fitness #nongmo #foodismedicine #dnascience #designernutrition #holistic #dnarepair #healthjourney

💥Health Technologies are Improving Rapidly! 🤩 Exciting new advances are being made at an incredible pace lately! ➡️ Supplementation VS Activation is an example. 🥦 For decades now, the primary way to for supporting health has been with supplementation – taking nutritional supplements to fill in the much needed gaps of things lacking in our typical daily diet. 🔬 But now the latest science technologies have identified specific pathways within the cells that can be activated to optimize cellular health. 🤔 Think about it…..When the cell is functioning more efficiently and optimally, the organ is functioning better. When the organ is functioning better, the system is functioning better. When the systems are functioning better the whole body will be functioning better. 🛑 Activating health is becoming a disruption to the old way of simply supplementing to fill in the nutritional gaps. There are now ways to activate multiple internal cellular pathways that are unleashing the powerful resources within our cells to help us live with optimal wellness. Activation in 3 powerful cellular systems: ➡️ NAD+ ➡️ Oxidative Stress ➡️ Mitochondrial Dysfunction This is the TRIFECTA of nutrigenomics! #nutrigenomics #nutrigenetics #biohacking #biohacker #dna #telomeres #nad #nrf1 #nrf2 #oxidativestress #longevity #nutrition #health #fitness #dnascience #designernutrition #repost #dnanutritionpro #uforiapro
