Micro organism experiment

I’m going to conduct a natural self experiment. I’ve always wondered if I mimic ancestral man, and how they didn’t bathe/shower everyday, if there are any health benefits….So for the next 21 days I won’t take a bath. I’d advise you people who know me to keep your distance, for at least 22 days…..;)

I’ll post my findings….

Cortisol

Caffeine spikes cortisol.
Lack of sleep also spikes cortisol .
Stress spikes cortisol .
Over training spikes cortisol.

Any kind of mental or physical shock or stress will cause cortisol to spike sharply.

High Cortisol creates a leaky gut…..even if your eating Paleo….

Leaky gut allows things from your bowels into your bloodstream, that shouldn’t get in.

Relaxing, meditation, and night time cause cortisol to fall.
