Dr. Tim DeLorey’s life-long fascination with Natural Intelligence started with his first chemistry set at age 7. Later obtaining duel degrees in chemistry and physics and a stint working on the Space Shuttle Program. Tim went on to earn a Ph.D. in Neurobiochemistry and start a career in Neuroscientific investigations that started at UAB then to UCLA and onto the Molecular Research Institute. These efforts produced an extensive list of publications on epilepsy, Alzheimer’s, autism and neurodevelopment. Interestingly, during this research period the field of epigenetics was born. Epigenetics (meaning ‘above genetics’) has radically altered our view of how Natural Intelligence impacts our health and consequently our well-being, both positively and negatively. Viewing health as the inter-play between Natural Intelligence, via epigenetics, and what we know from cutting-edge biochemistry research, affords us a revolutionary opportunity to consciously regain our personal essence by pursuing a regenerative lifestyle. Eden Regenerative Design (ERD) came into being amidst such a revelation. ERD’s mission is to foster transformational regenerative life-scaping via lectures, workshops, experiential travel facilitation, publications and consultations. Regenerative life-scaping exists as a continuum, extending from the body internal (Biohacking), to ones external environment (permaculture), to ones interconnectivity with the larger community at large (Transition Town initiatives, experiential travel, grassroots community involvement, etc.). Tim consults with companies, universities, institutes and non-profits as well as one-on-one with individuals interested in achieving deep optimal health or developing a health promoting permaculture design of ones own habitat.
Workshops & Presentations
How quickly does human biochemical insights, generated in research labs from around the globe, trickle down to the medical establishment and subsequently to you? I would argue “not-damn-near-fast enough”. Fortunately, there seems to be a surge of scientific investigators, medical practitioners and citizen scientists waking up and doing something about this shortcoming. Such individuals are known collectively as ‘biohackers”. Biohacking is a term generally used to describe hacking into ones own biology in ways that are not typically put forth by the established medical community. Biohackers take pride in applying their passion, knowledge and insights towards the “biochemistry of being” in order to regenerate true self-health. Biohackers have brought you the world of Bulletproof coffee, ketogenic diets and blue blocker glasses to name just a few. Come join Dr. Tim and explore the often-edgy world of hacking into ones own biology.
Why The Hell Should You Care About Epigenetics
Epi-genetics (above-genetics) is the study of changes that occur to an organism resulting from modifications to gene expression, without altering the actual genetic code. Think of it as a bunch of switches on the gene that can be each turned ‘on’ or ‘off’. The pattern of how these switches are turned on or off conveys instructions to how and where the gene is activated. Life’s circumstances, such as what we eat, stresses, where we live, who we interact with, when and how long we sleep, how we exercise, etc., all influence the switches on/off pattern, thereby effecting gene regulation. So why is this important to you? Well, to start with, it’s no longer entirely true to say, I am “blank” because it’s in my genes. Come join Dr. Tim and explore a new way of being with what, how, why and who you are.
