The feeling of hunger and triggering autophagy – the third principle of Hormetix.

In 2016 Yoshinori Ohsumi received the Nobel Prize for discovering the mechanisms of autophagy- the process of absorbing old, broken, malfunctioning cells and utilizing them for energy. Autophagy literally means self-eating. It is a body’s way of cleaning up and recycling of our cellular debris. The great news is that it is relatively easy to activate this process. Yes, you must have guessed it by ...[Read More]

Hormesis aka daily challenges – the second principle of Hormetix.

We all want to have as little stress as we can but we need to understand that a little bit of stress can be not only useful but necessary for normal functioning of our mind and body. HORMESIS is a process through which moderate stress creates a body response that makes it more resistant to attacks of external or internal agents, promoting a better quality and more robust health. It has been notice ...[Read More]

Movement – the first principle of Hormetix

Movement – the first principle of Hormetix

Movement as an integral part of life is the first principle of Hormetix. Ask yourself every day: what have I done today for my body? Ask yourself every day: what have I done today for my mind? You are wrong if you think that if you live a sedentary lifestyle, an occasional session in the gym will allow you to maintain your functionality and health. You are wrong if you think that doing some crossw ...[Read More]

What if?

What if?

What if the many “truths” we take for granted are not necessarily what they claim to be?! What if what the doctors or food industry or big pharma have been telling (selling) us is not necessarily the best for us?! What if we take part of responsibility for our health in our own hands? Educate ourselves. Experiment. Learn. What if we actually KNOW what is good for our own health and well-being? Are ...[Read More]

Everyday cultivation of quality.

Everyday cultivation of quality.

Every single day you wake up in some place, you wake up in some body, you wake up in some mind and you begin to tell yourself your own story from the beginning, again. You remember where you are. You remember who you are. You remember what you need to do. Remember. It is a nice word but do you realize that human memory is re-created over and over again every time we try to “remember” something?! W ...[Read More]

What spirituality is and what it is not?

What spirituality is and what it is not?

I am sitting on the train watching a father and his ten-year-old daughter. They are so nice. He is so engaged and enthusiastic and has so much fun in a conversation with her. They exemplify how one can be towards another. Full of love. I think it is possible to be like this with everything. It requires attention. It needs cultivation. But it is possible. I think when people see it in someone who d ...[Read More]

Follow Nature – Natural health cultivation.

Follow Nature – Natural health cultivation.

The way of Nature Mother Nature provides. Listen to her voice. Listen to her instructions. Her voice is part of you. She will tell you what to do. Use her elements to stay fit and healthy. Use air, sun, earth and water. You are part of her. Do not avoid her. Flow with rather than against her. She is your teacher. Learn. Pay attention to your own body and everything around it.   Use breath to ...[Read More]

The minimum you can do for your health.

The minimum you can do for your health.

Stop eating all day long. Stop eating junk, especially highly processed and sugary “foods” and “beverages”. Get some good quality sleep. Where you sleep, it should be dark, quiet and well ventilated. Minimum 8 hours. No excuses. Learn how to breathe deeply and do it frequently in the park, forest, or any natural, clean place. Every day. Repeat: every day you need to be acti ...[Read More]

Appreciation

Appreciation

Every day I try to remember to appreciate every moment. Every day I try to remember how lucky I am. Every day I try to remember what a privilege it is to have food, water, roof over my head, shower, refrigerator, health, freedom, education, family, friends, time and much, much more! Every day I try to remember not to get irritated by the little inconveniences that life provides from time to time. ...[Read More]

No movement = loss of the ability to move.

No movement = loss of the ability to move.

We often tend to ignore our bodies and minds to the point of not realizing the fundamental importance and impact on our life that the properly functioning body and mind have. In the continuous rush of day-to-day existence, in the midst of all the important matters that we absolutely have to take care of, we forget that if our body starts to malfunction, we will not be able to direct our attention ...[Read More]
