How To Be An Upgraded Teacher
This is my first post. Started on what you call bio-hacking probably 5 years ago, became seriously VLC according to Lyle McDonald's CKD protocol 4 years ago. Reading, podcasting, and online communities have moved me more towards the paleo end of the low-carb universe and Dave's approach has awakened me to the whole micotoxin inlfuence of foods and my own implementation has created a paradigm shift within a paradigm shift. I'm sure many of you can attest, Bulletproof Coffee will do that to you
Anyway, I am already a very successful high school teacher. I am asked regularly where I get my energy and enthusiasm, and my standard response has been sleep, diet, and exercise, and I wonder how I might interweaeve some biohacking principles into my teaching and professional communities. I am extremely interested on how adolescent brains assimilate new knowledge and on ways to improve the performance of my students. My concerns are related to giving nutritional advice that may come back to bite me when a parent hears it and being economical with classroom time.
One example of something I've already done is teaching students some quick and easy stress-reducing protocols prior to taking high-stakes assessments. Results have been positive.
