The WHO estimates that about 60% of death is attributed to chronic disease. While these disease are often labeled as idiopathic and seemingly different, there is a clear link that nearly all these disease share. That link is an overlooked condition called insulin resistance.
Insulin resistance is a hormonal disbalance. As the name implies, it occurs when certain cells in the body become unresponsive to the hormone insulin. To compensate, the pancreas begins to secrete higher levels of insulin. This leads to a state of hyperinsulinemia.
Insulin resistance has been well documented to play a role in all of the following conditions:
Metabolic syndrome (Including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity and high blood sugar)
Heart Disease and
Fortunately, Insulin resistance can be both prevented and reversed with some combination of intermittent fasting and a low carbohydrate diet.
Additionally, health is more than just a disease free state. Health improvement should alway be everyone’s goal. Biohacking techniques help fulfill this important goal.
Restore your health
Intermittent fasting limits the amount of time during which the hormone insulin is elevated. This means that the body gets a break from insulin for a larger part of the day, allowing insulin sensitivity to be restored.
During the fasted state, the body will also produce ketones which serve as a superfuel for your brain and act as signaling molecules which help improve your overall health.
A low Carbohydrate diet decreases the total glucose load. This diminishes the insulin requirements and helps improve insulin sensitivity.
Due to lack of carbohydrates, the body learns to becomes a fat burning machine. This means that it can now tap into stored fat for energy. This directly leads to fat loss, decreased hunger and decreased inflammation.
Optimize your wellbeing
Biohacking helps further improve and optimize your health.
Biohacking techniques train your body to function at a higher level. Biohacking also trains the body to become resilient to stress and insults to the system. This leads to better work efficiency and productivity.
