#75 Hormesis and Antifragility the Keys to Stress Adaptation

September 29, 2018

Imagine being in the middle of freakin nowhere - cold, harsh wilderness

Would you be able to survive? Will you die? Or can you become a stronger version of yourself?

That's what every life form on this planet has had to deal with - early life on Earth was hazardous and it posed some severe adaptation mechanisms on all that was to survive.

Charles Darwin said in On the Origin of the Species:

It is not the strongest or the most intelligent of the species that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.

That’s what we’ll be talking about in today’s Body Mind Empowerment podcast. It's a rebroadcast of episode #8 published last year. I'm putting it out here again to share this idea with new listeners.

I’m your host Siim Land and the topics I’m going to cover right now include physical as well as psychological adaptation in the form of hormesis. 

The biological phenomenon to this is called ’HORMESIS’, which comes from the Greek word hórmēsis and it means ‘rapid motion, eagerness’ or ‘to set in motion.'

#74 Vishen Lakhiani on Transformational Education and Biohacking

September 23, 2018

They said: "Go to college, get good grades, work your ass off, and eventually you'll be happy!" By the time you're retiring due to adrenal fatigue and depression maybe...

Nearly 70% of people today are dissatisfied with their job and they're suffering from chronic fatigue, lack of purpose, poor relationships, and a slow degradation.

It seems the education system today is bullshit and it's setting us up for a lifetime of misery and disaster.

Welcome to the Body Mind Empowerment Podcast. I'm your host Siim Land and our guest today is Vishen Lakhiani. Vishen is the founder and CEO of Mindvalley University which is a transformational learning platform for the things that school forgot to teach us. He's a speaker, an entrepreneur, a biohacker, and the author of the best-selling book The Code of the Extraordinary Mind.

Vishen seeks to disrupt the school system of today by building systems of better living that incorporates transformational education, such as biohacking, emotional intelligence, consciousness engineering, and living your truth.

#73 Balancing Autophagy and mTOR - Biohacker Summit Tallinn 2018

September 17, 2018

Life consists of anabolic and catabolic processes that are governed through many fuel sensors inside your body. The main pathways that direct anabolism and catabolism are mTOR, autophagy, and AMPK.

This is my speech about balancing anabolism and catabolism with mTOR and autophagy at the Biohacker Summit Tallinn 2018.

#72 IGF-1, mTOR, Autophagy Deep Dive

September 14, 2018

You must've heard that eating protein, meat, and dairy gives you heart disease and gives you cancer. 

  • Does elevating IGF-1 and mTOR accelerate aging or do low levels of IGF-1 actually make you more prone to neurodegeneration and shorter life? 
  • Is it better to bulk up fast with carbs or do it slowly on keto?
  • Does bulletproof coffee stop autophagy?
  • How many carbs to eat on the targeted ketogenic diet?

These are some of the few questions of this Body Mind Empowerment podcast. I’m your host Siim Land and we’re gonna have another Q & A episode.

This time I decided to focus primarily on these anabolic pathways like mTOR or mammalian target of rapamycin and how it affects your longevity.

mTOR and IGF-1 make you anabolic and grow but for longevity, you want to know how to balance it with things like autophagy and AMPK. So, most of the questions will be about these topics. Let’s get to it.

  • Are IGF-1 and mTOR Bad for You 02:06

#69 Treating Epilepsy With the Ketogenic Diet - Michel Lundell from Ketonix

August 28, 2018

Did you know that the ketogenic diet was originally used to treat epilepsy in children?

Being in ketosis provides an alternate fuel source to the brain in the form of ketones, which help the person maintain stable energy and experience fewer seizures.

Epileptic patients who've gone keto have actually managed to cure themselves of the disease completely after being on the diet for a while. What's more, they can then return to a different way of eating without getting remissions. That's quite crazy and magnificent!

Welcome to the Body Mind Empowerment Podcast I’m your host Siim Land and today our guest is Michel Lundell.

Michel is the founder and CEO of Ketonix, which is the leading ketone breath analyzing device in the world. He’s treating his own epilepsy with the ketogenic diet and is innovating the science of ketosis by helping people understand this mysterious metabolic state a lot better.

  • Why Michel Decided to Treat His Epilepsy with Keto 03:05
