The Science of Stretching

The Science of Stretching

10/27/2019

At the risk of treading on sacred ground, we will attempt to present an unbiased physiological assessment of what would be termed more so as static stretching.  Stretching is a bit of a ‘touchy’ subject given that many tend to adhere to the notion that stretching is generally ‘good’. And it is ‘good’ but the timing and type can make the difference. &nb...

Natureneering: Harnessing the Power of Electromagnetic Energy

08/20/2019

You probably know that food, water, sunlight, and oxygen are required for life, but there is a fifth element of health that is equally vital and often overlooked: The Earth’s magnetic field and its corresponding PEMFs (pulsed electromagnetic fields). The two main components of Earth’s PEMFs, the Schumann and Geomagnetic frequencies, are so essential that NASA and the Russian space pr...

Nature + Engineering = NATURENEERING

Nature + Engineering = NATURENEERING

07/29/2019

Most of humanity innately senses that we benefit from what God has engineered into Nature.  Nature’s ‘wisdom’ heals and fortifies all of creation.  How Nature does this is still largely a mystery to natural science in many respects.  One process by which we are able to benefit from harnessing Nature’s wisdom is through Hormesis. Hormesis is a bi...

Welcome to Fitness Genome’s blog! My name is Chris Craig, Owner of Fitness Genome, and I wanted to take the opportunity to share with our community a bit about this long time dream that is now a reality. First, let me explain a few of the core tenets we’ve used in creating Fitness Genome. Bio-hacking - Webster defines bio-hacking as “biological experimentation...done to improve...
