Sleep is the backbone of a healthy life.

But I bet you aren’t getting nearly enough high-quality, restful sleep.

Here’s how to build an OPTIMIZED SLEEP STACK and get the best sleep of your life 🧵👇

Sleep is essential for weight management, productivity, skincare, immune response, mood, cognition, and general health & wellbeing.

Theerthamalai Mandir located in Dharmapuri Dist. TamilNadu
Also known as Theerthagireeswar (Theertha+Giri+Eshwar)
Theertha = Holy Water
Giri = Hill
Eshwar = Bhagwan Shiva.
There is a deep connection of this Mandir with #Ramayana

@LostTemple7 @Vadicwarrior @davidfrawleyved @tourismgoi @Voice_For_India @mariawirth1 @tntourismoffcl @incredibleindia @AnuSatheesh5 @MinOfCultureGoI When Sri Ram killed Ravana – to nullify his Brahma Hatya Pataka Dosha on Him he did Abhisheka to Mahadev Shiva. Unfortunately Sri Hanuman could not reach mandir on time with Ganga water, Thus, Sri Rama shot an arrow on a hill stone creating Rama Theertha & completed the Pooja.

The force will be same thru out the year even in hot summer, & no one could identify the source of tiny water fall coming from hill stone. List of Theerthams surrounding the hill mandir:

HOW TO: Build a supplement stack

I’ve given y’all lots of information on different supplements, but now it’s time to put it all together.


Let’s dig in🧵👇

IMO the best approach is a modular one.

You want to put together a good base layer for healthy living & then layer on various modules targeted at specific conditions & goals. Image
Your add-on modules might be targeted at gut health, energy, stress/anxiety, immunity, gym performance, etc.

This isn’t to say that each supplement only targets one thing or has one use, but it helps to understand why you are taking something & how it all fits together.

During a long period of meditation the legs and entire body sometimes seem benumbed, owing to lack of blood circulation. what can the Yogi do to prevent this!

Mahamudra ( the spine- stretching asana that is done before practice of Kriya proper) can be performed again during
and/or after a long meditation. When performed as taught in Kriya Yoga, Maha Mudra is a combination of asana and pranayama. It stimulates circulation; and by its beneficial effect on the spine, distributes life force evenly throughout the entire body. It thus benefits ---
in a way that other exercises do not --- the nerves, veins, muscles, heart, lungs, and joints, keeping the body in full vigour and health, adapting it to long periods of meditation. Other asanas (postures of Hatha Yoga) are not as effective for this purpose. Therefore, it is

You should get blood work done every year to optimize your health. Knowing your levels can help you tweak your diet, exercise & supplements to maximize your overall health & fitness.

Let’s look at what tests you should be getting 🧵👇
Blood work is the backbone of biohacking. It gives you a window into the inner functioning of your body. You can see when something is not in the optimal range & take action to fix it.
Optimizing your mental & physical performance relies on having accurate data about your biochemistry & how your body responds to changes.

You can order blood tests through your doctor, or there are online options for you to order your own tests.

With so many supplement brands out there, how do we choose?

Plus, I’ going to tell you my top brands.

Let’s dig in 🧵👇

#supplements #vitamins #health #wellness #nutrition #fitness #biohacking Image
The FDA does not regulate the vitamin & supplement industry, which makes it a minefield of low-quality products, scams, and harmful contaminants.

This makes it difficult to choose high-quality products, and nearly impossible for newbies.
Once you’ve chosen what types of supplements you want to take, how do you sift through the myriad brands?

Here’s what to look for when choosing supplement brands:

Tongue scraping, or jihwa prakshalana,
is a traditional Ayurvedic self-care practice.

Overnight, as the body processes everything that was ingested the previous day, toxins begin to form & are visible as a coating on the tongue.

#healthy #health #healthcare #ayurved #lifestyle
Each section on the tongue corresponds to an organ, making the tongue a roadmap to the body's health.

Scraping the tongue thereby gives our internal organs a gentle massage. When you scrape the back of the tongue, the colon is cleansed, stimulating better peristalsis.
Why scrape your tongue?

✅Reduces toxin load; preventing reabsorption of toxins that your body worked to expel
✅ Reduces obstruction to the respiratory system
✅Reduces bacteria and dead cells from the tongue
✅Enhances sense of taste
✅Promotes overall oral & digestive health

1/ If you told me a year ago that I'd be presenting at a #Regen conference, I would have been curious...

If you told me I would be talking about #blockchain and #planetaryhealth, I would have been sceptical!

The last year has been an unlikely, & frankly liberating, journey 🧵
2/ Across my career as a doctor & #globalhealth academic, I had been gathering a trail of insights like breadcrumbs - some poignant, some uplifting, some infuriating - about what does and doesn't work to build #communityhealth, thanks to the amazing people + places I've worked
3/ It is obvious that "the system" is broken + has been for some time. There's a myriad of complex issues that keep people sick, poor, unhappy, & unequal. These #SDoH are so overwhelming that #healthservices can often only scratch the surface when it comes to ill health

BREAKING: #UK #USA In a surprising twist in the decades-long effort to eradicate the virus, authorities in Jerusalem, New York and London have discovered evidence that #polio is spreading there. The original source of the virus? The oral vaccine itself. Image
Oyewale Tomori @WALETOM a virologist who helped direct Nigeria's effort to eliminate polio, said that in the past, he and colleagues balked at describing outbreaks as "vaccine-derived," wary it would make people fearful of the #vaccine.
"All we can do is explain how the vaccine works and hope that people understand that immunization is the best protection, but it's complicated," Tomori said.
