IS YOUR THYROID IN DISTRESS?

 

Over twenty-five percent (25%) of Americans have Hashimoto’s Disease, which triggers the immune system to attack the thyroid gland, sending the endocrine system into chaos. The inflammation (or chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis) caused by this attack on the thyroid will typically cause hypothyroidism (an under-active thyroid) and slow the production of thyroid hormone and essential body functions (i.e., metabolism).   You may not be at the full-blown disease state yet, but you may be experiencing early, unpleasant symptoms.

 

Are you female, between 30-50 years old?  The […]

Medicinal Mushroom Series

CORDYCEPS THE CONQUERER

Medicinal Mushrooms are fairly closely related to us, evolutionarily-speaking.  We share about 30% of our DNA with mushrooms, and both species use enzymes to break down nutrients to sustain ourselves.  Most mushrooms break down plant matter externally, and in the process, create soil and access to nutrients which Nature uses to create new life.   We humans take food inside our bodies where our digestive system uses enzymes to break down nutrients which we can absorb.

LION’S MANE FOR THE BRAIN & NERVES

 

MEET THE MUSHROOM MAN

We first encountered Paul Stamets on YouTube.   I could not rip myself away for a second.   His talk at a Bioneers’ Conference in 2015 was riveting and inspiring.   This man and his wife have literally spent years in the forests, mostly in Oregon and Washington States.  He holds hundreds of patents and is widely regarded as a top science expert in the field of mycology.  He has a mission on this planet and has found hundreds of solutions using […]

What IS Autoimmune Disease?

It affects millions of Americans, and it’s becoming more and more widespread.  “It” goes by names like Multiple Sclerosis, Celiac’s Disease, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Psoriasis, Type 1 Diabetes, and more…

By David Martin – Acupuncture Physician practicing Holistic Medicine, serving Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Lehigh and Naples.

Common Breakfast Mistakes
The most common mistake people make with their breakfast is to eat typical breakfast foods, most of which are highly processed and loaded with sugars. This includes waffles, cereal, toast, muffins, bagels and other breakfast sandwiches. These are some of the absolute worst foods you can eat. They satiate your current hunger but set you up for metabolic disasters and fuel excess body fat and obesity-related diseases.
There are many thousands of well done peer reviewed studies that support the harmful effects […]

NEW MEDICINE: 
GUIDING LIGHTS OF THE FUTURE

This is a powerful time in Medicine!  A few game changers are coming to the frontline to radically SHIFT the possibilities for how healthy we are, how long we live, and how we do it.

GUIDING LIGHT #1: 

MINI MIGHTY MICROBES
They are super tiny;  100,000 may fit on a pinhead.  They were the first life, over 3.5 Billion years ago.  Microbes (bacteria) created our oxygen-rich atmosphere, and they have outlived all 5 major extinctions on our planet. Without them we couldn’t breathe or digest our […]

Rx for Healing: The “Do Nothing” Day

 

Eating a healthy diet, getting sleep, massage, acupuncture, meditating regularly; these are all ways to keep you going and prevent overload from happening; but it does happen. In today’s society, though, even the most holistic person can experience burn out, chronic fatigue, dissatisfaction with life and mental exhaustion.

The bottom line is that we live in a culture of human doing. We are constantly inundated with information and technology. Expectations at work are high, and the technology that brings us closer to loved ones can easily turn into a tool to tether us to […]

The Power of Context

The Stickiness Factor

PART 2 of 4 articles

According to Wikipedia, the Stickiness Factor is:  The specific content of a message that renders its impact memorable. Popular children’s television programs such as Sesame Street and Blue’s Clues pioneered the properties of the stickiness factor, thus enhancing effective retention of educational content as well as entertainment value.”  This article will explore some of the factors that we believe are “sticky” (as per Malcolm Gladwell’s “Tipping Point” book).  There are critical factors which are helping America alter the course of its […]
