The best things in life are free
Creation, in an entirely unselfish way, provides us with life-sustaining resources free of charge. And this does not only refer to food such as fruit and vegetables. The most important of all foods for which there is no alternative, is air, or rather the breathing atmosphere that we continuously inhale and exhale, and without which we can only survive for a few minutes.
If you want to take your life into your own hands, if you want to take responsibility for your own health and that of your family, if you want to take care of your vital energy, your zest for life, your ability to perform and regenerate, you should think about the quality of the air you breathe. After all, we humans take in more than 10,000 litres of this indispensable breathing gas every day. We are often not aware of this.
What is noticeable, however, is that more and more people are now developing their own consciousness, asking questions and thinking for themselves, being more critical about the things they want to do for themselves and those they prefer not to do. They are looking for a way to lead a better and longer life, healthy and free from symptoms.
Biohacking is particularly about analysing, understanding and, in the optimum case, intelligently improving environmental influences and their often profound effects on our bodies, as well as the body’s own repair processes and biochemical processes.
Biohackers do not simply track their day via smartwatch with fitness tracker or app. They simply want to understand more deeply how their organism systemically functions and what it really needs to improve or maintain crucial body functions, such as concentration or sleep.
Which brings us back to air. One thing is clear: we cannot live without air. There is no alternative to air. And it should be vital and vibrant, i.e. preferably full of vitality and forest energy. Unfortunately, it is not yet possible to buy healthy breathing air in organic quality at the supermarket around the corner or at the petrol station. But who knows what the future will bring.
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), air pollution is the greatest environmental health risk to humans today. More than 88 % of premature deaths are caused by air pollution as well as geoengineering measures, especially in low- and middle-income countries. According to this, nine out of ten people in the world currently breathe polluted low-energy air. According to the WHO, this causes the deaths of seven million people every year. One third of deaths from strokes, lung cancer and heart disease are due to air pollution. The extent to which the WHO’s official figures are accurate has not been verified.
But not only the human being itself is breathing, no, every single one of our cells is breathing. From the point of view of physics, we humans consist of 80 to 120 trillion cells, each of which requires and consumes energy for cell protection and the formation of new cells. This cycle of photosynthesis and cellular respiration, also known as internal respiration, is essential for life.
And then comes the most important player in this natural interplay: Light. Natural light. Light governs all fundamental processes inside and outside of our bodies, in addition to initiating and maintaining life. No wonder light has always been a universal symbol of creation, divinity, spirituality, well-being and holistic health. Light is connecting all aspects and areas of our lives.
