Exciting news came out at the start of the new year: CNN, The New York Times and The Today Show shared that intermittent fasting and controlling inflammation is good for your health. This “new” information, is nothing but new. This has been researched for years, and something we have been discussing and doing, for a long time. While we may poke fun at the mainstream media for sharing this “latest” news, it is our hope that more people will consider the benefits and make some positive changes in 2020.

Decreasing inflammation in our bodies is a key factor in preserving our health and preventing disease, and while fasting may not be right for everyone, it can be very effective if applied intelligently. Please read our past blog posts on Fasting Inflammationwhere you will find much more information as well as links to some of the research being done and the top researchers in these areas – Dr. Rhonda Patrick, Dr. Valter Longo, Dominic D’Agostino, Ph.D., and David Perlmutter, M.D., among others.

The key to your health and longevity is to start NOW!! It doesn’t matter if you are vegan, paleo, keto, Mediterranean, low carb, etc. by limiting snacking, sugar, processed foods and bad fats you will decrease your overall inflammation. Pick one or two small changes and stick to it. The secret to the fountain of youth: eat well, sleep well and exercise intelligently!! Please don’t tell anybody, it is just between us well educated consumers 🙂

In 2020 we will continue to delve into the latest in longevity, health, anti-aging, strength, performance and wellness. As we always say, constant never ending improvement! We look forward to attending the Metabolic Health Summit later this month, as well as Paleo f(x) in April. We were thrilled to bring in Ben Greenfield in September, and are working to bring in another top expert this year to educate us all. In 2019 we also had the opportunity to experience some of the latest treatments and biohacks for heath at Next Health and Upgrade Labs, as well as explore stem cell therapies (even sending clients to Panama for treatment), and other areas of functional medicine that are extremely promising. We had the privilege of meeting Dr. Matt Cook, Founder of BioReset Medical in Campbell, where they are leading the way in regenerative medicine; we are excited to bring you more of these cutting edge treatments.

We will continue to update AXIS with the best and most current information, as well as the latest equipment. We have updated all of our Hyperice equipment and have placed orders for new plyo boxes as well as all brand new dumbbells. Our goal for the New Year is to support you and your trainer by supplying AXIS with the tools to help you excel and reach your personal best!
