Episode Description

Biohacking is the approach of assessing body functioning and assessing the impact of life style choices. Steve Fowkes, an expert in biohacking, discusses how we can determine if our metabolism is fast or slow, the physical manifestations of the metabolism rate, and how we can hack / alter our metabolism rate. He discusses the body's pH as an important mechanism in health and its role in circadian rhythms. This goes beyond the message of "alkalinize" as it depends on the individual, the time of day and his life style choices. He will tell you how to hack your own pH and circadian rhythms for optimal performance and health. Other self tests discussed include: An easy self assessment for a coagulopathy as well as approaches for for modifying/ hacking its impact. He will also discuss a simple self test to assess carbon dioxide levels.
