Activities: Intermittent hypoxia
A controlled short-term reduction in oxygen exposure. At the cellular level, it activates multiple protective responses in the immune system and the brain.
/ Intermittent hypercapnia
Allowing a momentary buildup of carbon dioxide in the bloodstream. It has immunological, neurological and metabolic benefits.
/ Intermittent fasting
Alternating between periods of fasting and eating on a regular schedule. It promotes heart health, boosts memory and energy, and fights aging.
/ Intermittent hydration
Hydrating oneself in a natural way, from a feeling of thirst to satiation, to optimize our body’s fluid regulation system. It’s not a question of drinking less water, but drinking less often.
/ Varied diet + fermented diet
Fermented food are those that have had their sugars broken down by bacteria or yeast. They improve digestion and boost immunity.
/ Intermittent Heat&Cold
Exposure to hot air or steam in a sauna. Beyond just relaxation, there are proven benefits for the cardiovascular, metabolic and immune system. And controlled exposure to short bursts of low temperatures. This activity activates the nervous system, reduces stress, and fights inflammation.
/ Mindfulness
The practice of bringing your attention to the present moment without evaluation. It is a very powerful tool to overcome chronic stress, which is responsible for many illnesses.
/ Deep learning
Each of the Intermittent Living strategies and concepts will be explained in depth. Deep knowledge and understanding of the mechanisms by the individual/person facilitates positive health effects throughout the body.
