How To Increase Brain Function

Neural plasticity is the regeneration of new brain cells. You thought that was impossible? No, it’s possible. More proprioception firing causes increased neural plasticity, brain function, and heightens all of your senses.

Inversely, inflammation in the body causes stiffness of the muscles and joints which decreases proprioception firings. Less proprioception firing decreases brain function. A good anti-inflammatory diet and learning proper mobilizers will help with this. Send me a message for more help with the diet and exercise details.

Are GMOs Really That Bad?

25 years ago Jeffrey Smith went to a lecture where a genetic engineer was talking about how scientists were about to genetically engineer our food supply.

Stress Relief

Stress can be described using a scenario where say you are walking from your igloo and you see a giant polar bear growling at you. Your heart rate increases, blood pressure goes up, blood vessels expand, muscles are being fed energy from fuels that are being made from stored fats, your respiratory drive goes up, you sweat to keep cool because you’re about to exert yourself, your blood thickens to clot faster than normal, you produce inflammatory chemicals to activate your immune cells to start mobilizing for tissue repair, your attention centre in your brain lights up; it’s a massive change in your system. It’s all designed to deal with a clearly perceived environmental threat. Have you seen the Leonardo Dicaprio movie “The Revenant”? This type of thing happens!

Heavy Metal Detoxification

Heavy metals are just one more hilariously lovely thing to ruin our health and make us fat. However, I do have some good news. Bad news as well.

Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis is the most common thyroid problem and it’s very commonly undiagnosed. Your thyroid is the primary regulator of your metabolism. Hashimoto’s causes less production of thyroid hormone with transient bursts of way too much.

Soup and The Benefits of the GAPS Diet

Dr. Natasha developed a concept called GAPS; Gut And Psychology Syndrome. GAPS diet heals and seals the gut lining; it normalizes the microbiome and stops the inflammation. Bad bacteria create toxins that go into the bloodstream and cause any number of symptoms depending on the toxin, which in turn depends on the pathogen creating the toxin. Wherever the toxin flows to is where the disease will occur.
