Photobiomodulation for Fatigue in Multiple Sclerosis
My main project at the moment is researching the therapeutic applications of (transcranial) infrared light for MS patients. We started experimenting in April 2017 – looking at frequency, dose, area of application etc. The results are promising. Check this dedicated blogpost for more information and updates. This project is coming to a close now (July 22) and a final fully rewritten blogpost will be published soon.
Psoas Release Exercises
Experimenting with self-induced ‘neurogenic tremors’ since 2014. Read more about how I do this with the psoas release exercises or attend one of my psoas release excercises workshops in the Netherlands or Switzerland.
In got involved in several ways. First of all I was infected myself at the end of March 2020 and had mild Covid-19 symptoms. This gave me the opportunity to experiment and find out which interventions had an effect on my symptoms. After watching a video about the math of pandemics, I started to calculate the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in the Netherlands using the data of the RIVM (Dutch CDC). Meanwhile I looked around in the biohacking and functional medicine space for ways to manage or cure Covid-19 patients. This resulted in the blogpost ‘Biohacking Covid-19‘ which I update regularly. In January 2022 I had another very mild Covid infection – most likely of the Omicron variant.
Fasting & Diet
I did my third 5-day water fast in March 2021 and did a 3-day hard dry-fast in January 2022. Keywords: autophagy, stem cells, ketosis.
I have been avoiding lectins and eating low carb / high fat for a while. Since January 2019 I’m restricting carbo-hydrates even further to a nutritional ketogenic diet. Needless to say, this is within a time restricted feeding window of around 8 hours. Using caprylic acid (C8) MCT oil since April 2019.
Regularly trying out new supplemens like: bacopa monnieri (memory), cdp-choline (cognition), lithium oratate (brain), alpha-gpc (cognition) and liposomal vitamin c (anti-viral).
