Fat and Your Brain Can you grab a few inches of love handles at your waist? Your brain may be shrinking. Especially the part of your brain that has to do with self-control and mindfulness. Life often manifests as circles. One thing leading to another. Who would have thought that there might be a circle surrounding mindfulness, brain size, appetite regulation, and belly fat? But there is. Let me present a web of scientific evidence that shows that “mindfulness” plays a significant role in being able to control the portion size of what you choose to eat.

Life often manifests as circles. One thing leading to another. Who would have thought that there might be a circle surrounding mindfulness, brain size, appetite regulation, and belly fat? But there is. Let me present a web of scientific evidence that shows that “mindfulness” plays a significant role in being able to control the portion size of what you choose to eat. More mindfulness, less belly fat. The opposite also holds true. More fat, less mindfulness (not in all, but in many). The bigger the belly fat, the smaller the brain volume (even in children); less mindful awareness, due to the [...]

2019-04-03T10:03:23-05:00

There are now several replicated studies from prestigious labs around the world showing that brain tissue in children under 10 years of age, in cities with high levels of pollution, are exhibiting early Alzheimer’s and Parkinsonian-like changes. These altered brain tissues show signs of unhealthy inflammation, misshapen proteins, and are looking more like the old brains of cognitively declined seniors than of kids. Our brain is at the top of our physiological pyramid. Yet, we often don’t think about it unless we have issues with it. Our brains can have one of two problems: “Out loud” issues. This means our problems [...]

5 Things I Do Every Day To Not Get Breast Cancer Back

2019-04-03T10:03:42-05:00

I had breast cancer over 20 years ago. So my remission is my mission. There is a lot we can do besides finish whatever care we took, such as surgery or other interventions, and then believe we got it all and go out into the wild, cross our fingers, and wish for the best. Never guide your life choices by “we got it all” and then assume you are now safe. It makes sense to retweek your physiologic terrain, to make it healthier. It makes sense to identify and fix glitches that had allowed your body to grow a nasty cancer [...]

TV ads have taught today’s youth that diet colas make us dance, prance, and smile as we get the pretty girl or handsome guy.

The commonly believed causes—eating more and moving less—don’t explain the entire epidemic or why losing weight today is much more difficult to achieve than it was in the 1980s.When I practiced with Dr. Block in Tulsa, an internist who had been in practice for over 50 years, I asked him what was the most common health issue he ran into over all those years.

The basic working unit of your brain is a neuron. It can also be called a nerve cell. It gets electrically excited to transmit information to a wide variety of cells through synapses.

2019-01-23T07:47:44-06:00

By Berkson Please share! We live in a chemical soup. Every one thing affects everything else. Is this part of the unity that spirituality discusses? Is this what the philosopher Bucky Fuller meant when he referred to our planet as “spaceship earth”, meaning all we DO and ARE affects all of mother earth and you and I who live on it? New research suggests that our chemical soup lowers blood levels of nutrients. This chemical soup especially reduces blood stream levels of your all-important vitamin D.
