Intermittent Digital Fasting: Shizenha Bio-Hacking

Shizenha Bio-Hacking is the same as Bio-Harmonizing or Japanese Bio-Hacking I have been talking about.

Shizenha means naturalists, and they are the role model of the Ikigai Diet. They are young people but will be centenarians since they are restoring and recovering the lifestyle of Japanese blue zones such as Nagano, Shiga, and Okinawa.

In Shizenha bio-hacking, everything is done naturally, and we avoid artificial methods as much as possible.

No matter how much you practice intermittent fasting, working out with HIIT, and having the perfect diet, there is one thing that is distracting your bio-hacking.

That is technology.

Yes, you are constantly wired. You all carry a smartphone or smartwatch wherever you go, and check SNS whenever you receive a message( thank god, they notify you with a sound now).

That means you are surrounded by electric magnetic waves, your eyes get tired, and most of all, you are accustomed to the digital lifestyle where you are quickly fed information with visual images, leaving no time to construct an image yourself, like you used to do when you accessed information through reading books. 

We have never had this type of environment before in our civilization, and nobody knows what kind of effect we will get in 20 or 30 years’ time. People talk about keys to longevity and immortality, and how we are lucky to be living in a technologically advanced society, yet, nobody talks about the effect of this digital lifestyle.

Well, it may not have such a negative effect after all, but I can at least say this. To develop the kind of sense Ashitaka in Princess Mononoke had, you need to stay away from the digital world.

Want to know what I mean by Ashitaka’s sense? Watch this. 


Yet, we all know we can’t avoid the wired life entirely. We all depend on it now. So today I will share with you a method to help you stay connected to the natural world while keeping the digital lifestyle.
