Your Brain On Mother Earth

  There is a beautiful relationship that our brain has with the energy of mother earth. This helps support everything our brain helps us to do — from enhancing our mood to maintaining a healthy weight to deepening our restorative sleep.   Most people believe that our circadian (day/night) rhythm is dependant on sunlight to set that pattern for us, but scientists have actually known since 1970 that the earth’s energy field has as much, if not more, to do with our sleep/wake pattern than even the sun. Here’s how:   Researchers built two underground isolation chambers that completely cut …

I Had No Idea This One Neurotransmitter Changes Everything We Know About Aging

Serotonin is historically linked with depression — and poor sleep as well — since serotonin is the precursor to melatonin and folks who are low in serotonin are likely low in melatonin too. (Which sucks because as I blog about here, folks struggling with depression are only likely to have the depression resolve if they are sleeping well.)
