Davinia Taylor visits Get A Drip
|Hi Davinia thank you for chatting to us about health and biohacking today!
You’ve had a DNA test previously, what made you do it and have you changed anything about your lifestyle since getting the results?
I’m now aware of my methylation cycle and am trying to support it with the correct B12 and lithium levels! All a balancing act which is super interesting!
You’re into biohacking – how did you become interested in it?
Initially it was via the bulletproof diet when I was trying to drop excess baby weight after my fourth son… I then signed up to my first Spartan race and realised I needed all the support I could get in the least amount of time! Time is always against me with having so many kids to ferry about!
What elements of biohacking have you adopted into your everyday life?
I’m a fan of IF (intermittent fasting), bulletproof coffee, infrared saunas (using niacin supplements), ice baths, cold water swimming, IV Vitamin Drips, light therapy, cryogenic therapy, breath work, transcendental meditation, organic foods and supplements. To name a few!
How has bio-hacking and optimum nutrition affected your life?
I feel a sense of control which gives me comfort in the sense that I’m not at the mercy of chance when it comes to my health… I am in tune with my symptoms and now feel I can get to the root of any problem as opposed to masking them. I also feel I am setting a great example to my children who are now learning to look past the marketing of food products and read the labels thus taking control of their bodies and minds.
Is there anything in the world of bio-hacking or optimum nutrition that you want to try but haven’t yet?
Absolutely ….NAD+IV!!!! I want to repair my DNA due to the abuse I put my body through during my years of active addiction and alcoholism.
And finally, can you let us into the secret of some of your favourite wellness places in London (e.g. studios/gyms, cafes/restaurants, salons etc)?
