The Biochemistry Of Mammalian Hibernation As A Possible Basis For Therapies

Hi there ! Interesting ! This could turn out helpful, especially the limb/organ regeneration (like geckos/salamanders/lizards cell transdifferentiation to regrow their cut-off limbs/tails...regrow a human arm or leg after losing it. But 'don't lose your head' (pun!) over losing your other limbs (joke)). Regrowing your head would still not stop you from dying from losing it in the first place. It's the regrowing of organs that has me more interested, limbs ok, but organs...that's a whole different thing. If we could regrow/regenerate our organs, except perhaps brain, to the exact same state during youth; that would be a form of rejuvenation. Exceptional cancer resistance by (NMRs) naked mole rats (large hyaluronan molecules, plump skin for hypoxic environment, altered p53-p16-p21 levels and stronger stromal cell barriers that inhibit tumor propagation to other organs) is definitely something we can do with; although, this is mixed stuff. Certain studies showed an actual increase in hyaluronic acid (HA) during human cancers (neoplastic remodelling is what is happening). Inflammation is characterized by higher amount of short-chain/fractured hyaluronan while anti-inflammation in ECM h Continue reading >>

    Does anyone else find that they get motivated to declutter their home while on a fast?!
    This was recently discussed on a Facebook group I'm in, I find the whole idea of 'body' and 'home' autophagy fascinating.......
    I wonder if anyone else experiences the same urge to declutter when fasting or in deep ketosis?
    Maybe its something to do with having that boost in energy that fasting brings plus the extra time that the lack of food prep and eating offers?!
    Anyone else noticed this correlation?

    Personally, I feel empowered when I'm on a Keto high. My brain is laser focused and overall I move at a much quicker pace and on top of that I don't tire. It's crazy how much I get accomplished when I have high ketones! I do find I go out of my way to clean and straighten up more than usual when I'm feeling wonderful.

    Yep me too!
    Im thinking it's like we have physiologically evolved to have more energy available when carbs are low, or scarce.
    In temperate climates, during Autumn/winter it seems like we naturally hibernate and conserve energy, and those times are when we have more access to fruits and root vegetables.
    Ketones seem to boost energy levels and during lean times this would give us the energy required. Is it a coincidence that we 'Spring'clean when food would have naturally been scarce?!

    Just something I'm pondering...... lol
