    On the forums I read a lot of people posting studies and biochemical reasons for why things should work or be healthy.
    I am wondering if anyone has actually improved their health through using scientific theories?
    Personally my health had never been as bad as when trying to force "healthful habits" or "methods" onto it.
    The only way I finally managed to improve myself was through intuition, trial & error and carefully listening to cues from my body.

    For me personally the 4 pillars that seem to decide my health are:
    - Diet/fluid (specific macronutrient intake for me (high carb moderate protein low fat), micros never seemed to do anything for me, only fiber helps somewhat) - fluid intake lower = better for me personally,
    - Light (sunlight, exposing whole body to the sun preferably as much as possible, I actually crave sunlight),
    - Appropriate physical activity (low intensity movement with specific exercise regimen for my body, I have a nervous system that recuperates very slowly so for me personally higher volume lower weight works a lot better),
    - Adequate rest.

    This is good, better than anything that a scientist could tell you. Scientific knowledge helps you figure out why you feel certain symptoms and how to possibly work around them, but ultimately your intuition will be the best guide available.

    Almost all the stuff I use and advise people has helped me or my family. And most of them are Ayurvedic else orthomolecular based with backed up science.
    Still, I am trying to improve my diet via Peating and other biohacks.

    I have improved:
    • connective tissue, fascia,
    • regenerate nerves,
    • penile tissue injury,
    • prostate,
    • hair loss,
    • skin collagen synthesis,
    • repartitioned neurotransmitter system
    • cognition, psychosis, false memory
    • anhedonia, depression
    currently working on:
    • Tendons, muscles
    • Hair growth
    • Learned helplessness

    I use the theories to give me clues as to what may help me, but at the end of the day, personal experience is key. What works for one may not work for another.

    I also like seeing studies, especially multiple studies, showing something's effect because it let's me know it's not placebo and reinforces my intuition.

    An example for me is seeing how different supplements affect me similarly, then reading up on them and seeing the common way they affect physiology. This also helps me narrow down what I need to focus and improve on.

    A lot of it is almost meditative in the sense that I base things on how I feel, but reading the studies gives me an idea as to what that "feel" is, in scientific terms.
