Hello everyone: Please take a few minutes to read this link about toxic exposures. Most of the country does not pay attention to this and it, unfortunately, seriously undermines our health and environment. One of the primary promoters of inflammation that drives chronic disease is toxic chemicals that we all are exposed to daily. If you have a chronic health condition, then you are inflamed, and you will benefit from learning about toxic chemicals and how to reduce your exposure. “If the pandemic served as a window into our health, what it revealed was a US population that is not only sick but also seemingly only getting sicker.

Health Update: Stress and Brain Inflammation = Fog

Hello again everyone: Thank you for reading our posts we really appreciate you! Here is some super interesting data on how stress leads to brain inflammation which leads to fog and other brain symptoms like anxiety. This relates to the Covid era where lockdowns and stress have been highly elevated and why even non-infected individuals are experiencing mental health challenges. Here is why the authors did this study: “While COVID-19 research has seen an explosion in the literature, the impact of pandemic-related societal and lifestyle disruptions on brain health among the uninfected remains underexplored. However, a global increase in the prevalence of fatigue, brain fog, depression and other “sickness behavior”-like symptoms implicate a possible dysregulation in neuroimmune mechanisms even among those never infected by the virus.” “This study provides ...

Hey there everyone: Here is a compelling study that reveals healthy eating patterns improve health and lower your risk of chronic disease. While that is not too surprising, what is surprising is that the majority of us are NOT healthy.

This means that only about 5 people out of every 100 Americans are living an optimally healthy life…yet the data clearly shows why: what we are eating is killing us. We are suffering way more than is needed just because we are not eating well…it may be tasty, but it is killing us fast. Here are some take-aways from this study:

  • Unhealthy eating habits are among the leading causes of early death around the world.
  • Harvard researchers have recently found that a variety of ... Read more

Hello everyone : This information is basic and simple, plus it is easy to fix, plus my bet is that you already know this. Read what the authors have to say and if you do something about it, you can add years of health to your life and life to your years: “The pandemic of physical inactivity is associated with a range of chronic diseases and early deaths. Despite the well documented disease burden, the economic burden of physical inactivity remains unquantified at the global level. A better understanding of the economic burden could help to inform resource prioritization and motivate efforts to increase levels of physical activity worldwide.”  “In addition to morbidity and premature mortality, physical inactivity is responsible for a substantial economic burden. This paper provides further justification to prioritize promotion of ...
