myFM: Biohacking

Ever heard of Biohacking? It’s a topic that I introduced over the past weeks on my podcast EAT THIS with Lianne. Realizing that you can take control of your genetics that mom and dad gave you - well about 80% of what came in the ‘book of you’ that is, and knowing that heart disease, diabetes, dementia, or cancer that seems to be running through the family has the potential to be kept at bay, can be empowering and daunting at the same time. 


So what can you do? In episode 125 I introduced the term biohacking and what it means. Shortly stated it’s optimizing your health potential. That’s not so bad, is it? Even deeper, it’schanging your chemistry and physiology through science and self-experimentation to increase energy and vitality while defying your chronological age. I sometimes wake up feeling like I’m closer to 60 than I’d like to be. My muscles feel creaky, tired, and stiff. Not a good feeling to start the day. And some days I leap out of bed and almost land on my yoga mat ready to hit it. Was that something to do with what I ate last night, or even yesterday, how well I slept, how much exercise I got, which supplements I took, and how much time I spent at my desk in artificial light? All of it adds to our overall well-being. Not all biohacking ways work for everyone as you’re an individual with specific detoxification ways that someone else doesn’t have. Like I don’t detoxify optimally so I know that if I mix drinks, I’m done for the next day. Someone else could try everything at the bar and feel right as rain the next day. 


In episode 126 I dove into the effects of light - blue light and what comes from our computers, tablets iPad, and phones. And the counter to that being sunlight and red light and near infra red light. I use my Orionrlt.ca light all the time and have just used it on my dog who had emergency surgery last week. If you’re ready to try it out for yourself; aches, pains, skin health and healing, mental health, recovery, anti-aging, and more, use code EATTHIS10 on Orionrlt.ca to get 10% off. I have the Orion Pro unit with a stand and it’s perfect for everyone and everything. 


Maybe it’s not so daunting now?

The chill in the air, all the way to your bones makes those hot drinks that much more appealing. Hot chocolate is the drink of choice after a long snowy walk or a skate at the rink.
