Ep. 62 - DAVINIA TAYLOR - From Addiction to Biohacking


If you're anywhere around my age, you probably remember former Hollyoaks actress Davinia Taylor's name from the gossip columns in the '90s and '00s. 


She was known throughout that time as the Primrose Hill party girl who experienced all London's nightlife had to offer and more, alongside the likes of Kate Moss and Sadie Frost. 


What she didn’t know back then was why she was so susceptible to alcoholism and why she needed it so much, and, interestingly, why her body was able to process it so efficiently at the time.


A series of traumatic events led Davinia to seek answers, eventually leading her to the world of biohacking and health optimisation, and in this week's episode of Reconditioned, we had such fun talking about:


-The mechanisms of addiction and depression

-How knowing about your genetics and hormones will help you beat addiction

-How to optimise your health

-How to understand your body’s physiology

-What biohacking is

-Davinia’s favourite hacks, health tips, supplements and other products

-Post-natal depression

-Biological dentistry


-And my personal favourite, how to biohack a take-away!


There was so much more in there too. 


Davinia really has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to health optimisation and if you’ve ever suffered with depression, anxiety, addiction, ill-health or you’re a parent, you’ll particularly benefit from listening to this episode.
