Aging may be a disease that we can reverse
What if I were to tell you that aging is a disease - not a necessary step in life - that can be reversed? I know it might seem like something out of a science fiction movie, but there's some really interesting research that's surfacing about how aging is actually in our power.
Scientific research today is pushing the boundaries around aging and longevity - and how we can live to be 100 (or older!). There are a few things we can do every day to shift our biological age. I really loved this conversation with Microbiologist, David Sinclair, Ph.D. - but here are some key takeaways:
1. Eat only when you're hungry: Intermittent Fasting has a ton of research that connects it to living longer lives - but if you find this difficult, focus on eating less often.
2. It's okay (and important) to stress the body out...in certain ways. One example - high intensity interval training. Another - eat organic and bright veggies, because they're producing molecules that signal longevity cell production in our bodies.
3. Being really, really cold is good: It doesn't have to be long either. Being in freezing cold water for at least a minute helps us develop brown fat, which is directly connected to longer lives.
