We are over six weeks into the COVID 19 quarantine. I have been home with my three kids, managing my business online in a time warp that feels endless. During this time, our normal patterns of life have been severely disrupted.
The joys of summer are finally here! This is the time to pay attention to your magnesium levels as we spend time in the sun playing and sweating. I like to rev up my magnesium during the summer months as the loss of electrolytes can disrupt magnesium stores and can cause adrenal fatigue if left unchecked.
Everything you have ever experienced, felt, or conducted in life is due to brain function. "The ability to enjoy, perceive, sense and experience live is dictated by the firing rate and health of your brain. It is impossible for a person to become healthy mentally or physiologically without a healthy brain." – Datis Kharrazian, DC, MS
Did you know that you have a wandering nerve in your body that is the boss of your nervous system?
Did you know that inflammation, and the ability to bond, and go to the bathroom is directly influenced by this nerve function?
In functional medicine, research now shows that this nerve may be a missing link to treating chronic inflammation, and new medical technologies are creating a field of treatment using vagal nerve stimulation that leaves the use of medication in the dust.
Neurogenesis is a new buzz word in the community of biohacking and there have been revolutionary discoveries in this new frontier regarding brain health. I dove head first into this field of study two years ago while studying Functional Diagnostic Nutrition and recently devoured two books on brain health that have radically changed my perspective on the healing process.
