Anti-aging lifestyle commandments

  People often ask me, “What do you do to stay healthy and young?” I do many things every day to maintain my health, but here are 5 strategies that I personally implement and guide clients to support them in achieving their health goals while also slowing down the aging process. Without further ado, here are my best anti-aging tips.

  The first key to an anti-aging lifestyle and disease prevention is blood sugar control. Most Americans, even people we consider healthy, have glucose spikes, which means blood sugar levels rise and fall throughout the day. And it’s not just in the standard American diet; Even people who eat a so-called healthy diet can experience glucose and insulin spikes, which can age you on a cellular level.

  In the morning, most people have a bowl of oatmeal with fruit or whole grain cereal or toast with jam. Even if the food is organic, we know this: Eating a bowl of oatmeal or two slices of whole wheat toast is equivalent to drinking a 12-ounce can of soda in terms of elevated blood sugar. After you eat these foods, your glucose will spike an hour later. Two hours later, the glucose was still rising.

  You age faster:
Even a “healthy” American diet often leads to spikes in blood sugar throughout the day. These spikes fuel the production of AGEs, advanced glycosylation end products that age you quickly because they destroy collagen faster than would happen naturally. That’s what gives you wrinkles. Damage to AGEs can also cause pain and inflammation in the joints and skin, and even autoimmune reactions.

  Telomeres: Our biological clock
To make matters worse, AGEs shorten something called telomeres, an important part of human cells that affects cellular aging. They’re at the ends of our chromosomes. Telomeres are the perfect biological clock: It has been observed that the shorter the telomeres, the closer you are to death. We can measure telomeres to see cell age and actual age. So you might be 45 years old, but based on your telomere length, your cell age is 65. When glucose surges, your telomeres shorten rapidly, bringing you closer to death.

  Goodbye grain, hello healthy fat
So how do we control glucose? First, get rid of grains in your diet, or at least limit your intake. Every once in a while, I’ll eat some quinoa (technically a seed) or organic wild rice, but my intake is very limited. When I was sick, I had no grains in my diet for at least five years. Note: Many people consider gluten-free breads, cookies, cereals, and desserts to be “safe” foods. But know that gluten-free is not a good option when you’re trying to control your blood sugar levels. This is because most gluten-free products contain alternative flours such as tapioca, cornstarch, etc., which boost glucose better than sugar. Be careful.

  We can also control blood sugar by increasing our intake of healthy fats. This includes saturated fat links to eat fat articles. Contrary to popular belief, healthy fats are essential for balancing blood sugar and for regenerating inflamed cell membranes. Coconut oil, which is rich in saturated fat, is an excellent natural blood sugar regulator, as is organic cinnamon. For an energy boost, I like to use a spoonful of coconut oil, sprinkled with cinnamon and sea salt (for electrolytes).

  I must also point out that we should eat the right amount of protein to avoid blood sugar spikes through the gluconeogenesis process (click here to read more). In fact, too much protein can age you prematurely. For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, eating more than 100 grams of protein a day may be harmful; 50-75g is a reasonable and safe amount. Genetics play a role here, but moderate protein intake is best for fighting aging and optimal health.

  The second tip for an anti-aging lifestyle is to change your diet (read this article). Dietary change is exactly what the name suggests: changing your diet regularly. When we look at the original diet, before they started planting and growing grains, many people were on the ketogenic diet [without knowing it]. A ketogenic diet means that carbohydrate intake is so low that cells switch from burning glucose for energy to burning the body’s own stored fat for energy. When in ketosis, the body uses most of its energy from fat in the diet, so eating plenty of healthy fats is essential for success (read more about ketosis here, link to keto 1). When cells burn glucose for energy, which is 99 percent of Americans, it produces many byproducts that age you prematurely and create more inflammation, which is at the root of most modern diseases (link R4). One of the things I do with very challenged and sick clients is use the ketogenic diet as a tool to get them into a state of ketosis. We usually reduce their carbohydrate intake to less than 50 grams per day. This puts them in a state of ketosis for 2-4 weeks, where they become pure fat burners and their cells begin to repair themselves.

  Burning fat produces fewer toxic byproducts than burning sugar and thus slows aging. I like to give an example: When a gas stove is lit, the flame has no smoke. It’s like ketosis, an “energy fuel” that burns cleanly when ketones burn. On the other hand, light a log in a fireplace and you will see smoke and need a chimney. This is what happens when you burn glucose for energy. It produces dirty byproducts, just like the wood burning in your fireplace. So putting people in ketosis lowers inflammation and helps their cells use cleaner fuels to reduce cellular waste. As ketones increase (they are a byproduct of fat metabolism, hence the name “ketogenic diet”), your brain and body use them to heal cells.

  Our ancestors and dietary changes
If we look at ancient tribes, we see that they were forced to change their eating habits. Why? They experienced changes in seasons, changes in the environment and, of course, the availability of certain foods depending on rainfall and weather conditions. In winter, they don’t have access to fresh fruits and vegetables, so they rely almost entirely on meat and fat. Their winter diet is high in healthy fats, which keeps them hardy and strong throughout the season. Then, when summer comes, they can start eating more vegetables and fruits again.

  A good example of the change in diet is the Hunza tribe of Pakistan, who are known for their longevity of 120 years. In summer, they eat lots of fresh vegetables and fruits. When winter came, they ate apricots, goat’s milk and cheese. There was also a time when the Huns ate nothing at all: this time was known as the “Hungry Spring”. It is said that they do not eat for a week, then eat a little, and then repeat the pattern throughout the spring. It was really a change in diet and I believe that was a key factor in their longevity.

  How do I change my diet?
This is the key to diet change, learned from working with many very challenging clients. After a few months on the ketogenic diet, we switched them from a ketogenic diet to a healthy high-carb diet, like my cell healing diet. During this time, the client’s daily carbohydrate intake has increased from less than 50 grams per day to 100-150 grams per day. Healthy carbs come from eating more organic starchy vegetables, fewer organic berries, perhaps a very small amount of organic non-gluten grains, and more organic seeds and nuts. Then, after a few months, we put them back on a low-carb diet (like the ketogenic diet). The mutation seems to work wonders in repairing damaged metabolism. People who are unable to lose weight will notice faster weight loss. Diet changes really work. Again, we see this shift in sports. For example, when you do the same exercise at the gym, day in and day out, you don’t gain. The same goes for diet. As our diets change, as our bodies become more metabolically efficient, something amazing happens to our innate survival mechanisms. It’s an effective anti-aging strategy that simply mimics our ancestors. A natural way of life.

  Implement dietary changes: Apply the basic principles of dietary changes every few months or so. Again, read my Diet Changes article to learn how to make smart changes to your diet. I believe it will greatly help your overall health and slow down the aging process.

  Another incredible anti-aging lifestyle tool is intermittent fasting, which I’ve written about in many articles and discussed on many CHTV shows. That’s the idea behind intermittent fasting. We know that eating speeds up your metabolism, your DNA, and your cells, making you age prematurely. But when you’re fasting intermittently, this kind of calorie restriction is effective. Why does it make a difference? Over time, intermittent fasting makes you a very effective fat burner, and sugar and carbohydrate cravings slowly fade. You don’t have to push the food away because your body doesn’t need too much food.

  Research has also shown that fasting boosts human growth hormone, the so-called “fountain of youth,” which is a key hormone for anti-aging and youthful vitality. When you fast overnight and continue to fast into the morning or afternoon, your body is burning fat and clearing out cell debris from your body. Regularly, my clients will “fast” for four days using only probiotic whey water or aggregate (for more information on fast eating, see the link to the show here). For some of my more challenging clients, I have them fast for four consecutive days once or twice a month to speed up cell healing.

  I have a personal habit of intermittent fasting
I do intermittent fasting every day for overall health, and the anti-aging benefits are a great plus. When looking at studies on longevity — how long healthy people live — caloric restriction is always high on the list. But I’m not talking about refusing food or classic caloric restriction. For example, Tibetans and Okinawans usually live to be 100 years old and they never refuse food. They eat until they’re full, but they don’t gobble. At the end of the day, they don’t feel deprived because they don’t have cravings and they don’t feel hungry.

  How on earth do I do intermittent fasting every day? After dinner, I wait 16-18 hours for another meal. This means I skip breakfast (I’m just not hungry in the morning because my body’s glucose levels are perfectly regulated). I usually eat a small meal (made up of fat and protein) around 2 p.m. For example, I might have a whey protein shake (this is my favorite whey) or some lettuce wraps with grass-fed meat and cheese.

  Then I had a big dinner. It’s only natural, as humans, we’re biologically designed to eat at night. A good meal will allow your parasympathetic nervous system (which calms you down) to kick in and help you relax. A good dinner is the key to deep sleep, which is another key to anti-aging. If you eat a light dinner, it turns on the sympathetic nervous system, which then increases energy and stimulation, which is one of the reasons it’s so hard to fall asleep. Also, by eating a light dinner, your body will think it is starving and insist on storing fat, which is not a good side effect. A big meal in the evening is very important for successful intermittent fasting and is a daily step in keeping you looking and looking young.

  As an avid cyclist, I have nothing against endurance training. Genetically, I was made for this. However, when we look at research on slowing down the aging process and losing weight, high intensity interval training (HIIT), or burst training as I like to call it, is far better. High-intensity explosive training is a form of exercise that humans seek as part of our anti-aging lifestyle. We’re designed to hunt, run, stop, and run again. The goal of high-intensity interval training is to get your heart rate up to the point where it’s hard to breathe, then rest and repeat.

  Endurance and cardio training have their benefits, but for weight loss and delaying aging, burst training has even greater benefits. When a person does a lot of endurance training, both antigrowth hormones and anabolic hormones go down. Instead, when you do a high-intensity blast, these hormones increase. Anabolic hormones and growth hormones are needed to lose weight, stay slim, heal your brain and stay youthful and energetic.

  To see my point, look at endurance athletes: they typically struggle with oxidative stress and premature aging. Many marathon runners look older than their years and tend not to be thin, but what I call “skinny fat.” They lose muscle because they are in a catabolic state (breaking down molecules for energy). Excessive endurance training is definitely not a healthy lifestyle and can make you look older than you are. My advice to endurance runners is this: Stop the madness, stop running on the treadmill for an hour, stop the long cardio classes, and do high-intensity workouts.

  Now, if you’re fit enough to do endurance sports, change it up. When you train for a marathon, do it in moderation, but also in bursts. Studies show that people who run a lot of miles actually get sicker. When these people started including intensive training, they did better. Resistance training, weight lifting and yoga are all exercises that apply resistance to the muscles. They are all forms of burst training. Your heart rate goes up very fast when you lift weights. During the Utah winter, I also like to do something called skinning: I train intensely on intermittent fasting (aka an empty stomach) (click here for more on skinning). After skinning or any high-intensity workout, your body will burn stored fat more efficiently for the next 36 hours. So the double whammy of fasting and burst training (Tips #3 and #4) uses your fat to replace glucose and boost growth hormone production. It’s an amazing combination of weight loss and anti-aging strategies.

  We come into contact with neurotoxins every day, like flame retardants on curtains and carpets, genetically modified organisms in our food, and pollutants in the air. We walked in and out of buildings filled with chemical scents. We have heavy metals in our water and in our mouths. The number of toxins we are exposed to on a daily basis is astronomical and has a significant impact on our cell health and the rate at which we age.

  Of course, in the modern world, we can’t avoid all toxins. That’s why true cell detox & Trade; It is a habit that we must form in our daily life. The detox method consists of three components and three phases. The three components include :1. Addressing 5’ s fixed unit; 2. Open and support detoxification pathways (lymphatic, intestinal, kidney, and liver); 3. Use real adhesives to remove toxins (Learn more about the revolutionary new adhesives I use here. Link to Cyto). The three stages include :1. So let’s go to 2. Detox your body. Detox your brain. For more information on real cell detox and trade, how it works, and how I use real adhesives to get real detox results, read my in-depth article here. I would also recommend a heavy metal detox if appropriate. I wrote a three-part series on proper metal detox called “When Detox is Dangerous.” Read these articles to become more familiar with the topic: Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3.

  Consider before you detox:
Despite the best intentions, most people don’t understand how to detox properly and safely. It’s not just about doing a colon cleanse, although this can help flush out toxins. Detoxification requires more far-reaching effects to have real effects. Most of the cleaning and detox products in health food stores remind me of the mechanical sweepers we used to see on the street. For example, if you drive behind a sweeper, all you see is a big cloud of dust because the sweeper is moving dust around. Dust rises into the air and then falls somewhere else. This is a useful analogy for most detoxes: One of the reasons most people don’t feel great after a single colon, kidney, or liver cleanse is because the toxins simply move around the body and resettle in a new place. It’s important to understand that when you do an incomplete detox, you can inadvertently create more problems by moving toxins around but not getting them out of your system properly.

  When you don’t detox enough, toxins start to build up in different parts of the body, causing severe inflammation of cell membranes. As we know, inflammation is the cause of most diseases. When cell membranes become inflamed, nutrients needed to nourish the mitochondria (the cells’ power plants) cannot get inside and toxic waste cannot be expelled. The cells then have a toxic soup, which sets the stage for disease and, of course, accelerated aging.

  What about the brain? You need these nutrients to make energy in your brain cells. But if you have cellular inflammation in your brain, that’s a big problem. Many people complain that they have no energy, saying, “My brain isn’t working!” But your brain cells are actually inflamed.

  Where does the toxin go?
When toxins migrate out of cells, they make their way to the liver and kidneys. The liver processes the toxins, and then they’re flushed into the gut, and we just want them to flush down the toilet. Unfortunately, many people suffer from leaky gut, and toxins are then recycled back into the system. From there, they cross the blood-brain barrier and can cause many unnecessary symptoms. The toxin then returns to the body and binds to the bile. When you digest fat, you expel bile and toxins circulate again. This vicious cycle is called autotoxicity, which is why it’s so important to take a supplement called BIND(Super activated Carbon) during detox: It can act as a trap for those pesky toxins, helping to get them out of your system.

  Repair cell
After we begin the process of binding the toxin, we need to concentrate on fixing the cell membrane. This is where the core cellular product comes in. My concept is called true cell detoxification and healing & trading. Is about healing cells and true cell detoxification and trade; Is a key way to help people recover from toxic diseases. Please read these articles because you must understand how important it is to first remove the source of the trouble (R1) and repair the cell membrane (R2) in order to move the good things in and the bad things out. In addition, you must restore cellular energy (R3), reduce inflammation (R4) and rebuild methylation (R5). Cells must be fixed and must be properly detoxed to achieve optimal health and vitality.

  Anti-aging diets and silence killers
Of course, diet plays an important role in looking young, successfully detoxifying and generating cellular healing. I recommend following my cell healing diet while practicing dietary changes and trying intermittent and intermittent fasting to reduce inflammation, balance hormones and promote anti-aging. My diet cuts out grains, sugar, toxic fats and bad protein to make you look and feel your best.

  If you’re eating conventional grains, you’re going to be exposed to a lot of a chemical called glyphosate, which is found in genetically modified organisms. Glyphosate can perforate your gut and brain, which is very dangerous. I wrote an article called “It’s Not Just Gluten.” Please read this article and pass it on to someone you care about. In this article, I talk about the dangers of genetically modified foods. See Cell Therapy TV Episode 95, where I interview Dr. Stephanie Senev, a senior research scientist at MIT, about the dangers of genetically modified organisms to human and planet health. What is happening to many of our food sources is absolutely frightening, and consumer education on this issue is necessary.

  Monsanto, which introduced Roundup-Ready herbicides containing the active ingredient glyphosate, deceived the public by promoting claims that genetically modified organisms were safe. Other countries ban genetically modified organisms because they contain glyphosate. The truth is, glyphosate is not safe in the human body. Currently, some companies use glyphosate after organic grain is harvested. So we were heavily exposed. Once glyphosate enters our cells, it starts changing DNA. When this happens, because of these forced genetic defects, we begin to exhibit certain diseases. Throw in vaccinations and other environmental toxins, and you have a perfect storm of health disasters. We wonder why our children and friends are allergic to everything.
