You'll notice that a lot of synergies come into play when mixing fasting and psilocybin - Showing us that these insights were long known in ancient Greece, and are attributed to many of the most well respected philosophers.
The deeper you go into a fast, the more sustained and larger stem cell regeneration effects. However, the deeper you go into a fast, the more stress you apply to the body, and it becomes critical to balance it properly. Also the longer you fast the more you activate your quiescent stem cell pool.
While gluconeogenesis can provide glucose during periods of low carbohydrate intake, it may not be sufficient to meet the high energy and substrate demands of stem cells during active regeneration.
When we fast, our body turns to stored fat for energy, a process known as fat oxidation. This isn't just about energy; it's also about water production.
Glycine, a non-essential amino acid, has been studied for its various roles in the body, including its involvement in the process of autophagy, the body's way of cleaning out damaged cells and cell components to make way for new, healthier ones.
Recommended only for advanced bio-hackers and those at the tail end of their Autoimmune illness journey.
Cortisol, known as the "stress hormone," is produced by the adrenal glands. Its primary role is in managing how the body uses carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, and it also helps regulate the body's response to stress. During extended fasting, cortisol levels rise.
Merging the practices of dry fasting and sauna therapy unveils a unique, synergistic potential. The enhanced autophagy from dry fasting, coupled with the activation of heat shock proteins through sauna therapy, could significantly amplify cellular repair and rejuvenation.
Techniques such as exercise, music, touch, and activities like massage or cuddling have been found to boost oxytocin production. Additionally, we explore the potential impact of nutrition, gut health, and certain lifestyle choices on oxytocin levels.
Dry fasting has been around for a long time. People did it when they had no food or water, not because they were following a special diet or taking supplements.
