Blood Sugar is the Power Energy in Your Video Game Life – Dr. Molly Maloof with Dave Asprey – #706

Manage healthy strategies to extend your lifespan: continuous glucose monitoring, fasting, mitochondrial health, metabolism, movement and your stress response.

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I got to talk with Dr. Molly Maloof about why she wants to bring continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) to the masses and how it can optimize nutrition and health.

CGM is the ultimate lifestyle biomarker. “I don’t think CGM should be a prescription device,” Dr, Molly says.  “I think the information about your body should not be behind a pharmacist’s desk. It’s absurd that you have to ask your doctor for information about yourself.”

Her goal is to maximize human potential by radically extending human health span through personal health technologies, scientific wellness and educational media. Dr. Molly teaches a course at Stanford University on strategies for extending health span for longer lifespan. Her concierge medical practice is oriented around optimizing health and improving mitochondrial function.

“It is not acceptable that we are getting so sick so young and we need to ask ourselves ‘what are all the possible causes,’ ” she says. “A lot of it does have to do with how we eat, how we live, how we breathe.” EMFs are in the mix, too.

Dr. Molly’s aim is to redesign the healthcare system by reducing medicine prescriptions and implementing healthy lifestyle principles, like fasting.

“We’re designed to be fasting most of the time,” she says. “We’re not designed to be eating all the time, We have the genetics of scarcity and so abundance is actually damaging to health. Food is fundamental to health. If your food is wrong, your fuel is wrong, you’re screwed.”

She’s a passionate evangelist, empowering advocate and visionary futurist who is pioneering new approaches to personal health. “This is the whole crux of what biohacking is about, right? Like having to hack a system because it won’t give you what you want, why can’t people learn about their bodies? What’s wrong with that?”
