Danger of Dismissing Stress

By  - Tuesday, October 31, 2017

Is Stress Killing You?

"A critical shift in medicine has been the recognition that many of the damaging diseases of slow accumulation can either be caused or made far worse by stress," writes Robert M. Sapolsky, author of the critically acclaimed Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers. "Stress can wreak havoc with your metabolism, raise your blood pressure, burst your white blood cells, make you flatulent, ruin your sex life, and if that's not enough, possibly damage your brain."
Stress causes the production of interleukin 6, a chemical which creates inflammation in the body.  Studies have associated IL-6 with several diseases, including heart disease, arthritis, osteoporosis, type-2 diabetes and certain cancers.

We’ve been talking about it for years, doctors are acknowledging the impact on our health and still, as a society we commonly accept unhealthy levels of stress. Besides dismissing it (I’m just stressed) like it’s no big deal, we compete with others about who is more stressed.

Are You Losing Your Mind?

By  - Monday, October 26, 2015


Allergies and Gut Degeneration May Be Contributing to Loss of Brain Cells

Have you ever walked into a room and asked yourself ‘what did I come in here for?  While you may joke and say ‘I must be losing my mind’, this is, in fact, one of the signs of neurodegeneration.   
Neurodegeneration is the umbrella term for the progressive loss of structure or function of neurons (message carrier cells of the nervous system), including death of neurons.  We see it blatantly in diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, but the degeneration starts long before it is recognized.  Everyday signs of neurodegeneration include foggy brain, habitual lateness, getting lost frequently, trouble following directions, and food sensitivities.  This last sign may get you thinking, what do food sensitivities have to do with my brain?

Hug More, Cough Less

By  - Tuesday, February 24, 2015

I will not play tug o' war. I'd rather play hug o' war.
Where everyone hugs instead of tugs,
Where everyone giggles and rolls on the rug,
Where everyone kisses, and everyone grins,
and everyone cuddles, and everyone wins.
Shel Silverstein

We all know that hugs feel good (from someone we feel good about). But did you know that hugging is also good for physical and emotional well-being? We now have scientific proof that a hug a day (okay 8-12 hugs) keeps the doctor away.


From the Huffington Post article 7 Reasons why we should be giving more hugs.

3 Simple and Effective Ways to Ward off the Flu Bug

By  - Tuesday, December 23, 2014

Yes, tis the season to be jolly, unless you've got the flu. Not so ho, ho, ho then.

Flu strains are getting stronger and more resistant to anti-biotics and flu shots. In fact, I've heard these words on the news "The flu shot is better than nothing." I think we can do better than that!

Here are three simple and effective steps you can take immediately.


1. Sleep in Heavenly Peace

Bodies Need Rest

There's really not much more to say about that, but in honor of the redundancy factor, when you don't sleep enough, the body will do what it needs to do, which in many cases is to catch a cold, come down with the flu, break a leg, etc. Whatever it takes to get you horizontal. If you think there are things that have to be done that are more important than sleep, think again. Long-term sleep deprivation (like more than a night or two) will undoubtedly create more trouble than it's worth.

•    Mind, Body, Spirit Connection
Although many people are familiar with the terms wholeness and the mind-body connection, really understanding what this means and how it affects our lives is an intricate process.  Thoughts and beliefs do not just happen, and illness does not appear overnight, though symptoms will.

Reduce Risk of Alzheimers

By  - Friday, November 15, 2013

AlzheimersAlzheimer’s is currently at an all time high. Predictions are we will see a dramatic increase in the next 20 years in diagnosed cases.

Many mild cases go undiagnosed and there are many cases currently in the beginning stages that won’t be diagnosed for 20 years. Are you one of those heading down the Alzheimer’s path?

I can almost hear you laughing. Sure, it’s funny to laugh at your memory lapse - now. But when you lose all your memories? When you don’t recognize your loved ones? Will you still be laughing?
