How Do You Want To Drive Your Body?

I have always believed the most important question to ask, when trying to understand how to operate the human body is “how does the human body regulate itself”.

Analogies like a car may help put some stuff in to perspective.

Measuring what we but into the body will help us find answers that work for us.

Sleep is good. I use the pillow app and it has allowed me to monitor the amount of sleep and improve my sleep over the last couple of years.

So having a dashboard, as David Sinclair says, is a good idea. Start measuring anything you put in your gas tank and make informed decisions on good data.

Intermittent fasting seems to be a helpful stress because it allows the body to turn on defense systems that help the body fight disease and aging.

Basically, intermittent fasting helps improve your healthspan.

You can make many more good decisions to improve your lifestyle and help yourself and close friends and relatives live a healthier more productive life.

Education is key.

Gut Health

There is a connection between gut and brain .

We have microbes giving us many important chemicals.

So, eat well and the microbes you grow through eating well will keep you healthy.

So, eat fiber (microbe food) and find out what other good foods will produce decent microbes (probiotics).

All in all, this is a young science with high potential for healthspan.

Healthspan Vs. Diseasespan

The second half of your life depends upon you.

Are you willing to look for some good habits while you are healthy to enhance your healthspan in the second half of your life?

So, can you reverse the problem?

Much of our age depends upon our cellular health.

One key to a better healthspan is to make good choices and decisions in regard to living a good life.

Throughout our bodies we find many different kinds of cells that renew.

When many cells get old, diseasespan increases.

One thing that caused old cells are worn out telomeres.

Some of this can be reversed by doing a variety of things with your lifestyle.

These things everyone knows about but not everyone will do them: meditate, exercise, eat fresh whole foods, trusting and helping others (cooperate and collaborate), keep kids safe and healthy, keeping your own telomeres stable will pass them on to the next gen and make your healthspan better.

Stay tuned to many other ways to have a healthy lifespan.
