    Optimising Integrated Health & Achieving Balance - Interview with Thomas Olivier CEO and founder of Omnos

    Optimising Integrated Health & Achieving Balance - Interview with Thomas Olivier CEO and founder of Omnos

    Angela is in conversation with Thomas Olivier CEO and founder of Omnos an intelligent health system that enables optimisation through knowledge, planning and prevention.

    Democratising health,  making it more accessible to everyone is key if people are to take control of their lives, make the changes that will bring balance and optimise their health and well-being.

    It’s now easier than ever to understand your own background and when you are able to combine data you are able to gain a balanced overview of yourself and understand what to do to achieve balance.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    People can take control of their lives and make changes that will benefit their lives and achieve balance.
    It’s about integrated health, we are complex individuals and nothing works in isolation.
    Chronic conditions can be avoided if you make lifestyle changes early on. People can be more proactive about their health but to do this they need to be educated.
    When you start to look at your own biology and realise you are unique, you become more engaged with yourself.
    If you want to find out the real state of you right now functional testing is key.
    This is your health; your data and you should have ownership of it. Your genetic test is always a really good starting point.
    Being a part of the testing process and becoming educated about yourself as a part of the process is empowering.
    When the data belongs to you it is possible for you to share it with others chosen by you
    Health data is increasingly a commodity and its value is increasing so data ownership moving forward is vital.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘It’s about combining data and understanding what to do to achieve balance’

    ‘Lots of people have issues that they want to sort out but they need access to data that will allow them to gain a helicopter view’

    ‘It’s about connecting the dots and being able to navigate through’

    Fasting Episode

    Fasting Episode

    People undertake fasting for a variety of reasons and it’s important to begin by considering why you want to fast as your starting point. There are many benefits and Angela is looking at these in detail along with how to begin and how to maintain intermittent fasting, making it part of a sustainable routine.

    When starting with intermittent fasting it’s important to begin slowly and be consistent over an initial 6-week period to see the positive results and Angela shares great advice on how to begin and successfully maintain an intermittent fasting pattern that is right for you and your lifestyle.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Fasting is about limiting food over a time period.
    Always consider the reasons why you want to fast.
    If you are fasting ensure you are getting enough protein.
    There is a difference between fasting and caloric restriction.
    Fasting involves not eating for a set period of time and then eating within a limited time known as ‘compressed eating window’
    Caloric restriction involves intentionally restricting and lowering your calorie intake.
    Time-restricted eating is where food is consumed within a certain time period and the most popular approaches are the 12/12 and the 16/8 strategies
    Start with a 12-hour overnight period of fasting and use gentle exercise within the time period to enhance the effects of fasting.
    Consistency is really important, making your fast part of your routine will bring the best results.
    The health benefits increase with a smaller compressed eating window if you are using fasting to lose weight.
    You should aim to come out of your fast in a calm state and choose foods that are easy to digest.
    Prior to and on exiting fasting, consuming lower carbohydrate food is beneficial.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘Intermittent fasting helps to lower inflammation’

    ‘Any fasting schedule needs to be the one that suits the individual’

    ‘Always make sure you are engaging in parasympathetic activities’

    Feel & Look Younger with the Right Food Compounds

    Feel & Look Younger with the Right Food Compounds

    In this solo-sode, Angela looks at food compounds that when included in your diet can make you feel younger, look younger, live younger and increase your metabolism.

    Angela has been undertaking research for her upcoming book and in an exclusive taster of what’s to come in the book she shares advice on the foods that contain sirtuins and explains how these foods mimic the effects of fasting and exercise along with great information about other foods and food compounds that can make a difference to your health and wellbeing when they are included in your diet in the right way.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Food compounds can be used to help you to look younger, feel younger and be younger through increasing your metabolism.
    STACks activate an ancient family of genes known as sirtuins
    It has been shown that those people who are lean have higher levels of sirtuins whilst those who are obese have lower levels.
    Foods rich in STACks have a significant effect on fat-burning whilst also increasing muscle mass and improving cellular fitness.
    Consuming sirtuin foods and taking sirtuin activators can be a powerful combination for enhancing your metabolism and youthfulness
    One of the fundamental processes in life is the ability of organisms to respond to stressors.
    Hormesis is the concept that low levels of stress can improve health and well-being through the stimulation of the stress response.
    For the hormesis to be effective the dose must be correct.
    Zenohormesis is the process by which one organism benefits from the stress of another.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘Wild strawberries have higher levels of anti-oxidants than those produced commercially’

    ‘It triggers a stress response that has been evolving for nearly a billion years’

     ‘You can get incredible results from including STACks in your diet’

    Using DNA Tests to Transform Your Health - Andrew Steele from DNA Fit

    Angela is with Andrew Steele former GB Olympic medal holder, a founding member of DNA fit and head of product to find out about how they use DNA testing to transform results in sport, weight loss and preventative health.

     In this deep dive episode, find out all about how DNA testing can help you to optimise your health and wellbeing and why your genes are not your destiny it’s the epigenetics, the expression of your genes, that makes the difference to your health and longevity. Shining a light on the nature part of the nature, nurture equation is the key to understanding and provides information that can be used to successfully improve outcomes for any individual.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    When the environment is the same but people’s outcomes are different the question is what is the other factor?
    DNA testing highlights the nature part of the nature-nurture equation.
    It provides another piece of information that can be used by individuals to improve their outcomes.
    You can use genetic data to help you reach your goals, it will help you to get better quicker.
    For nutrition genetic data helps with sustained changes in behaviours.
    People have a specific internal motivation as to ‘why’. They know they are made in a particular way and require particular nutrition.
    There is self-motivation for making one choice over another.
    There is a complete spectrum of diets that we are familiar with and individuals will have greatly differing experiences with them.
    There are 2 macronutrient groups that can be looked at;

    -Response to saturated fats

    -Response to refined carbohydrates
    This layer of ‘why’ and understanding how it is different for each person is important in making a difference.
    It’s a powerful motivation tool when you understand the impact of your genetics.
    Circle is the world’s most comprehensive DNA test reporting on 500 different genetic traits across 20 categories.
    Whole enzyme sequencing looks at every single part of the active or protein-coding part of the human genome.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘Healthy lifestyle options are key, it’s about influencing our epigenetics’

    Are you heading for burnout? What is your body trying to tell you, with Adrenal and Hormone Expert Marek Doyle

    Are you heading for burnout? What is your body trying to tell you, with Adrenal and Hormone Expert Marek Doyle

    Angela is with Marek Doyle who specialises in personalised nutrition. He provides answers that are backed by data and talks with Angela about how he assesses test results to determine where an individual is on their journey and what imbalances are the limiting factors for wellbeing.

    As an individual who himself suffered from metabolic issues over a number of years, Marek has used his own experiences and extensive research to build a comprehensive understanding of human metabolism. He discusses the small indicators and compensations that we make, adjusting to a new ‘norm’ when we should be paying attention and taking action.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    When measuring heart rate variability, preliminary research indicates, if the number is 35 or below then you are potentially too sympathetically engaged and may run into problems with your immune system being downgraded along with other metabolic responses in the body.
    There are multiple ways your sympathetic nervous system will be activated.
    The limbic system is waiting for sensory input that may be important information that requires an immediate response from the body.
    Inflammation activates certain parts of the brain and is characterised by its potential to drive excess glutamate signalling.
    Glutamate is an important neurotransmitter which switches the brain on but excess levels result in too much signalling to the brain.
    There are a range of common possibilities that need to be considered when helping an individual with their sympathetic activation.
    The question to be answered for every individual is – ‘what is the rate-limiting factor for them?’
    You can’t take supplements or eat your way out of fatigue because it’s a sensation.
    You need to look at what you can do so that your central nervous system doesn’t produce the sensation.
    Ultimately it’s important to pay attention to the small indicators from your body and make the right changes.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘Our bodies are consistently communicating with us about pain and fatigue’

    ‘You can begin by looking at what your own patterns are through journaling’

    ‘Getting enough oxygen, having an anti-inflammatory diet and having good sleep hygiene are important’
