Re: Sleep Tracker

Although the minor (5%) T (A) allele of the ADA gene is associated with more deep sleep, it has both positive and negative aspects and might be worth checking out when setting sleep goals... People get less deep sleep as they age, decreasing from an average of 17% at age 20 to 12% at age 70... This...

Re: Coffee Questions

I checked my 23AndMe data, but unfortunately most of these SNPs aren't listed. I did find a TT for rs701492, though, which is a bad variation. Do you know of a DNA test that provides the other SNPs? Perhaps in future I might want to look into GAD1 more thoroughly. Despite the lack of information, I...

Re: Peter Attia Fast

Interesting! I haven’t listened, only read show notes. Does he ever go into his decision making re. atorvastatin and metformin? I think Peter Attia is taking metformin to suppress TOR. I heard him discussing it on a Tim Ferriss podcast from Easter Island that also included David Sabatini, the resea...

Re: Book or Website Meal Plan Recommendation

Are there any books or websites that provide a recommended meal plan - not just guidelines - that is fairly simple to follow? You might want to consider "The Longevity Diet," by Valter Longo. The guidelines are straightforward, and he provides some meal plans at the back to get started. T...

Re: Coffee Questions

Thanks xactly! I'll definitely look into Chris Masterjohn's resources. My mom and I both have COMT and MTHFR mutations. Rainbow: If you are prone to anxiety, you might also want to take a look at the status of a gene called GAD1. The enzyme produces from the GAD1 blueprint, glutamate decarboxylase,...

Re: Sleep!

One technique for improving sleep that I am having some success with -- "sleep consolidation". I hadn't heard about this before. I was told to count up the total hours of sleep I got the night before. Of course you usually have to guess a little if you're like me. But I came up with 5.5 o...

Re: Should APOE4's avoid Lectins?

Big salad using Dr Terry Wahls protocol of 1/3 greens with three different types of greens, 1/3 sulfurs with three different types of sulfurs (like mushrooms, onion, etc) and 1/3 colored with three types of colors (raw beets, raw carrots, etc) deviating from Dr Wahls protocol by eliminating any hig...

Re: Sleep!

Xactly, I've also tried tranquileyes. One of my problems is that when I'm asleep, I take the things off. Dumb. I just ordered something new made by Eyeeco. Maybe it'll work for me. Or maybe I'll leave them on. Who knows. We can only try, right? Dropped using the humidifier for the time being as the...

Re: Detox / Cleanse / Water Fast?

Tincup: Thanks for the info. I just downloaded the Kindle version of Fung's book, and I'm looking forward to reading it. I'm also excited about being able to continue fasting past age 70. I was disappointed to think I might have missed the window on getting the benefits of enhanced autophagy and ste...

Re: Detox / Cleanse / Water Fast?

I did 19 five-day water fasts between May 2018 and Jan 2019. Tincup: I'm reading "The Longevity Diet" by Valter Longo. He recommends periodic fasting for everyone up to age 70. The frequency depends on the individual's health, and he spells out several schedules based on various condition...
