Just In Time For Back-To-School: Get Rid of Your Sleep Deficit

I recently returned from a medical conference where one of the lectures was on repairing sleep deficits.   Something I was very interested in because I’ve always been a poor sleeper all of my life. The take home point that really stuck in my mind, and now when I have a sleepless night I remind myself of this again and again so that I don’t stress out too much about it, was: You are only ever one night away from a good night of sleep.   It doesn’t matter how long you’ve struggled with insomnia or how big your sleep …

Light Therapy Quickly Improves Libido

    Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, so today’s medical study reveals a simple tip for boosting libido! Woot!   New research (presented at the 29th European College of Neuropsychopharmacology Congress on September 19, 2016) shows that the same light therapy recommendation to treat Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) can significantly improve sexual satisfaction in people with low desire after only 2 weeks of treatment! While this study was on men, because light therapy is incredibly effective for females too, I truly believe that this would work for women with low sex drive and should be first line therapy for anyone with …

Sick Of Getting Sick? Double Check You Are Doing These 8 Things

In a huge meta-analysis, published recently (May 3, 2016 in JAMA) researchers found that up to 70% of antibiotics prescribed during a two year period were actually inappropriate prescriptions. This is a hugely important study, because with the recent exponential rise of antibiotic resistant infections, each and every use of antibiotics absolutely MUST be warranted. When we truly *do* need to use antibiotics (and they can save lives, make no mistake about that) we need them to WORK. Add on to that the unnecessary chemical load to the body and the potential side effects, both annoying and deadly serious, that …

Recovering Memory In Dementia — One Simple Trick

New research shows that in Alzheimer’s patients, long term memory can be regained through listening to music!   Listening to music that is familiar to the dementia patient from their past reawakens long term memories about who the person is, who their family is, and the context of their life. This has huge implications in quality of living, in social interactions and even in activity levels. If you play music that holds special meaning to a patient experiencing memory loss, you are very likely to help them recover context and depth and recognition in the form of long term memory …

Scientific Proof That Mindframe Is Everything

Do you know what the single most important factor in long-term health is?   Is it drinking enough water each day? Is it eating only raw foods? Is it getting high quality sleep?   Nope. All of those things are amazing, of course… but here is the ONE factor that is controlling your current state of health completely: your thinking.   Don’t believe me? Look at it this way: Your body is completely new — inside and out — every few years.   All of your organs (except for one) completely regenerates, repairs, and optimizes on a continuous basis.   …
