“Detoxing your mind and body does wonders. It is a natural reset button.”
― Robin S. Baker

The key to preventing dementia, reducing cancer risk, and slowing down the aging process lies in the process of autophagy, also known as “self-eating.” This detoxification process helps eliminate damaged cells and promote the regeneration of new, healthy ones.

Autophagy, derived from the Greek words “auto” (self) and “phagy” (eating), becomes crucial as our cells accumulate damaged proteins and oxidized particles over time, leading to accelerated aging and increased risk of developing dementia and cancer. 

Benefits of Autophagy:

Activating autophagy slows down aging, prevents or delays neurodegenerative diseases, reduces inflammation, and enhances the body’s natural functioning.

How to Boost Autophagy:

  1. Eat Fewer Carbs: Adopting a keto diet mimics the effects of fasting, promoting autophagy by shifting from burning carbs to fats.
  2. Meatless Mondays: Limit protein consumption to 15-25 grams once or twice a week, allowing the body to recycle proteins, reduce inflammation, and cleanse cells.
  3. High-Intensity Workouts: Engage in high-intensity exercises for 20-30 minutes a day to induce autophagy as a response to stress.
  4. Intermittent Fasting: Restrict your food intake to an eight-hour window, giving your body time to catch up on toxin removal and activate inherent autophagy.
  5. Get Adequate Rest: Identify your sleep personality through Dr. Michael Breus’s quiz to align your circadian rhythms and activate autophagy.
