Biohacking Chronic Inflammation
Hello all. I recently stumbled onto Dave's stuff & have quickly started to become super interested in biohacking.
I'm an early-career psychologist & specialist in behavioral health/health psychology and I also personally struggle with Crohn's Disease. What I'd like to do is to start working in the realm of self-experimentation/biohacking/self-quantifying for myself and to eventually model for people struggling with similar digestive issues that would like to take more control over their healthcare.
Can anyone give me any advice on where you would start if you were me - just starting off biohacking Crohn's (an auto-immune/chronic inflammatory condition)??
Thanks in advance!
UPDATE: Wow, great info here, thank you to all who replied. I have a lot to read through in Ron's Ultimate Digestion Health Guide. I should have been more clear in my request. i already follow very strict guidelines on my diet which all happen to align pretty much exactly with the Bulletproof Diet after years of following the SCD & GAPS diet + my own personal tweaking. Overall my health is good, but I want it to be great and I want off of immuno-suppressant meds.
So my revised question to you brilliant people is - what data would you start to track on a regular basis? Maybe start with blood markers?? (something to track systemic inflammation, CRP, B12, etc;)
Again, your help is much appreciated. I think I'll be hanging around this forum a bunch
