We keep ignoring the science about the overuse of antibiotics and the need for balance in our bodies.
This is especially pertinent to women, who often don't have a STOP button and we can get overwhelmed and burnt out, because in our heads we are juggling so many things. Often for men, it can be the same scenario as a lot of men say " I have my list of things to do and my partner/wife's list to do". Jokes aside we all need to improve our self care routine. A good way is to define your OWN self care routine
I am often asked this question, where people feel they are being held back from their true purpose. I believe "your deepest desire is your true purpose". When you are fulfilling your purpose there is a lightness within you and a sense of self (not sure now if I am confusing people).
My sincere wish is everyone finds their true purpose.
While researching ways to feel more connected in a society where 45% of people report feeling lonely, authenticity emerged as a common strategy for combating loneliness. When there’s an gap between what you’re delivering to others and how you’re actually experiencing life, loneliness and insecurity are sure to follow. Why? Well, when you’re not showing people the real you, you can’t be sure the person is choosing you.
Our body is the most amazing interconnected complex system. Often, although things may seem unrelated such as a stressful event, medication, single supplements and certain foods, they can trigger a cascade. Diabetes is a good example of this cascade affecting multiple systems and areas. A great article to share and learn.
Over a cuppa last weekend a colleague and myself discussed the growing trend of losing our boys and men to suicide and displacement, we both agreed we are going to collaborate, although neither of us know what or how at this stage. Watch this space.
In 2007 I wrote a mini thesis on “the narrative that men provide for their violence’. I clearly remember sitting with my professor stunned at ONE of the unexpected discovery that came through that small study, ever since I have been vigilant.
Let us truly rise to hearing all our voices, men’s, women’s and above all else, be aware how children witness how we behave and treat each other as adults.
My clients know how pedantic I am about Vit D and testing for it. So glad reading this research that validates our treatment approaches.
According to the journal Genome Research, Scientists have mapped the points at which vitamin D interacts with our DNA - and identified over 200 genes that it directly influences.
The researchers found 2,776 binding sites for the vitamin D receptor along the length of the genome. These were unusually concentrated near a number of genes associated with susceptibility to autoimmune conditions such as MS, Crohn's disease, systemic lupus erythematosus (or 'lupus') and rheumatoid arthritis, and to cancers such as chronic lymphocytic leukaemia and colorectal cancer.
Last week, I did a Menopause Management Intensive webinar by Dr Tamara Dickson MD, who among other things teaches at Bastyr University USA. She presented the latest research providing insight into the causes of some of the symptoms and the treatment plans for the management of Menopause. Loved it, so I thought I would share some information ......
Perimenopause is the two to eight years preceding menopause and one year following final menses. Most women become menopausal between ages 45-60. Average age of menopause in Australia and New Zealand is 51
