Most people talk about lifespan as the term of your natural life, however an interesting new term has begun to come to prominence: Healthsoan. Healthspan refers to the healthy portion of your life and many are seeking not just to prolong their life but their healthy life. Strategies adopted include living a naturally-healthy and holistic lifestyle designed to reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular diseases. According to recent findings  by researchers led by Professor Valter Longo from USC Leonard Davis School of Gerontology, fasting for 72 hours could help regenerate the immune system.
Fasting is currently a hot topic in wellness circles due to its wide range of health, wellness, and therapeutic benefits. However, there are a wide variety of fasting methods such as water fasting, intermittent fasting, and the trending “fast mimicking.” The fasting-mimicking diet (FMD) was developed by Longo and his colleagues, driven by the challenges faced by people following ‘normal’ fasting methods.
FMD is based on years of research and clinical trials and unlike traditional fasting techniques, the 5-day diet plan typically involves eating some foods – notably whole-food derived meals that are high in healthy fats and low in carbs. The low-calorie content of the meals depletes glycogen stores and forces your body to undergo gluconeogenesis by generating energy from noncarbohydrate sources. The calorie restriction due to FMD causes your body to mimic key physiological responses to conventional fasting – such as fat loss, decreased inflammation and cell regeneration.
In their study , the researchers asked a group of participants to fast regularly for 48-96 hours over a period of 6 months. Based on the remarks of Prof Valter Longo , the researchers were actually surprised by the effectiveness of FMD and prolonged fasting. They did not know before the study that extended periods of intermittent fasting would promote such stem cell-based regenerative effects.

😳 What Tinnitus Does To Your Brain Cells (And How To Stop It)
After 47 years of studies and countless brain scans done on more than 2,400 tinnitus patients, scientists at the MIT Institute found that in a shocking 96% of cases, tinnitus was actually shrinking their brain cells.
As it turns out, tinnitus and brain health are strongly linked.

Is because they are using something called "the wire method", a simple protocol inspired by a classified surgery on deaf people from the 1950s...

By Mike Westerdal CPT
Can you guess which muscle in your body is the #1 muscle that eliminates joint and back pain, anxiety and looking fat?
This is especially important if you spend a significant amount of time sitting every day (I do, and this really affects me in a big way!)
Working this "hidden survival muscle" that most people are simply not training because no-one ever taught them how will boost your body shape, energy levels, immune system, sexual function, strength and athletic performance when unlocked.
If this "hidden" most powerful primal muscle is healthy, we are healthy.
d) Hip Flexors
