In an age of health hyper-awareness, society is coming round to the notion of natural interventions to prime our immune system. The past year has brought attention to our vulnerabilities and reminded us of the hidden invaders that can occupy our bodies seemingly undetected.
Life evolved in the sea – a wonderful balanced electrolyte solution of sodium (Na+), potassium (K+), calcium (Ca++) and magnesium (Mg++) with chlorine (Cl) and sulfate. Although the sea has become saltier (higher concentrations of sodium chloride) than it is thought to have been historically, our bodies still bathe our cells in a very similar solution that quite closely mimics seawater, just with less sodium and chloride.
To understand the role that muscles play in chronic pain, we need to take a trip back in time. Although it’s easy to see how our human world has changed immensely in the last few centuries, our biology is not much different since the time that we inhabited caves. With this is mind we are going to consider the biology of the caveman and how the functions of pain related to their life.
Magnesium plays an important role in managing vitamin D activity/function and helps to maintain calcium balance. Magnesium’s presence is necessary for the function of enzymes that activate vitamin D in the liver and kidneys, as well as the enzymes responsible for carrying it in the blood.
Fasting as a healthy way to diet. A summary of the different forms of fasting, the process and benefits of autophagy, how fasting reduces fat without affecting muscle, improves insulin resistance and lowers blood glucose.
Chronic pain is arguably themost crippling diseasethat the world currently faces.
The term ‘Trigger Point’ (TrP) may mean different things to different doctors, pain practitioners and patients. I am going to use the term in its true form, albeit with my own thoughts on the mechanism’s fine print.
There are times when our body may choose to interfere with the calcium magnesium balance to improve survival. Since calcium is the “on” switch for cardiac, vascular and skeletal muscle, a move towards calcium dominance will increase the contractility of all of those muscles resulting in more blood being pumped against higher resistance with a higher blood pressure.Skeletal muscles will likely be stronger and more able to react rapidly.
I feel the need to apologize for not posting here in a few weeks. I was ahead of schedule for getting posts out, but my summer ended up being much busier than I had anticipated. Now with summer behind us, and the days getting shorter, it’s back to business.
You’re suffering from chronic pain. It’s not going away. You know you can’t keep living like this. You need help. You seek out a health professional expecting some alleviation from your suffering.

When your mind and body are both in peak health and the connection between the two is strong, the common cold won’t take you down.
The immune system is a rapidly evolving system in the body that changes frequently. As we continue to understand more of what improves our immune system, here are 3 techniques with relatively new science to back up their efficacy and show promise for improving the overall strength of our immune systems.
In today's world a deeper understanding of the mind-body connection can add tremendous value to the way in which we evolve, become healthier and fight off physiological disease and disfunction.
