21 Mar BBHT 1 Fasting, cryotherapy and gluten addiction
Ep 1 fasting gluten and cryotherapy.
In this episode we cover a whole range of topics starting with cryotherapy. Over the last decade there has been more and more research about the benefits of cold exposure being released. The last 3 years has seen a huge increase with the everyday use of cryotherapy with more and more clinics purchasing the equipment necessary to run cryotherapy sessions. Dr Scott Wustenberg from optimal life chiropractic in qld has recently added cryotherapy to his practice and seen great results in everything from stress/anxiety through to anti inflammatory and much much more.
We also talk about the pros and cons of intermittent fasting and long term fasting and what to watch out for to know if what you are doing is safe or not. The idea behind fasting is to get your body use to using fat as fuel instead of glucose/carbs. There is a long list of benefits ranging from anti-inflammatory and fat loss through to anti-aging.
In this podcast we go over what to watch out for to know if you are staying in the safe zone for fasting or if your body is going in to crisis energy mode and eating itself.
Finally we have a brief chat about Gluten and how some people can get addicted to it. Essentially as you break down gluten there is a peptide that looks similar to morphine, and your brain treats it as morphine by activating your opioid receptors.
