If you need even more reasons to get your sleep, here's a new one: Study shows that sleep, or lack of it, can help or hinder your social connections, which in turn are connected to your overall wellness and health. "... study participants interpreted more faces, even the friendly or neutral ones, as threatening when sleep-deprived."

Trying to keep the mosquitos away this summer? Understanding the three ways they hunt you down may help.

New research suggests that mosquitoes track down something to bite using a sequence of three cues: smell, then sight, and finally heat.

Early to bed and early to rise - the saying may be true - it makes you wiser. But, a new study shows the opposite is true of getting up too early if you have not had enough sleep to begin with. It can actually can impair your memory functions. From the article: "...interventions that allow people who usually don’t get enough sleep to sleep longer, including delaying school start times and greater use of flexible work schedules, may improve their academic and occupational performance by ensuring optimal access to memories under stressful conditions."

Chronic stress has far reaching impact. This study is not about the impact of stress during pregnancy - it's about chronic stress experienced during the woman's childhood having an impact on the pregnancy. The solution they suggest, however, is "proper nutrition and healthy lifestyle."

Women who endured chronic stress during their childhood have significantly more risk of a preterm birth, according to a new study conducted by the University of Alberta.

Even if you tolerate dairy well, commercial queso and cheese dip usually contains other ingredients to avoid, like added industrial seed oils, MSG, and other additives you are better off avoiding. Why not try avocado dip (in moderation) as a healthy alternative?

Medicine is evolving. Seeing patients for virtual follow ups is becoming more possible and practical. At our clinic, we are using an amazing new video conferencing platform called Chiron. I recently discussed this in an interview with James Maskell from the Functional Forum. Take a look.

High-fructose corn syrup not only makes you fatter, but also increases your LDL cholesterol. But, sorry, so does regular refined sugar - according to one study. Increasing intake of HFCS worsened lipid profiles. But was it because of added sugar, weight gain, or both? From a practical perspective, it doesn’t matter. Just don’t eat a lot of sugar: http://bit.ly/1fP4y8m
Blood lipids such as LDL and HDL cholesterol are markers of the biological processes that impact cardiovascular disease, and they are commonly measured to assess cardiovascular risk.  When we think about the impact of food on...

Functional medicine in the news…"Conventional medicine in the United States too often emphasizes “a pill for an ill,” say doctors who believe in the functional approach, which focuses on finding “the root cause” of disease in genetics, lifestyle, diet, and environment."

Are you a current or future health practitioner? The demand for functional medicine practitioners—especially those with an ancestral or evolutionary perspective—is growing at an exponential pace. But the clinical skills aren’t enough on their own. In order to succeed, you need to know how to effectively set up and manage your practice. I'm excited to announce my new project: Kresser Institute for Functional and Evolutionary Medicine. Pre-enrollment is just a few short weeks away. Be sure you're on the list to be notified.

As things fall apart every day this makes sense that we would need more doctors.

Research is beginning to uncover a whole new understanding of depression and mental wellness and surprisingly, it doesn't start in your brain, but in your gut.

I recently recorded a presentation for the Mental Wellness Summit where I discuss this "gut-brain axis" as well as new research about the microbiome's affect on mental health.

If you sign up now you’ll get free access to my presentation, and many others, during the week of Aug 10-17th.

I'm a health detective. I help people with chronic, complex illnesses who haven't been able to find help anywhere else. I'm a licensed acupuncturist by trade, but I specialize in what I call "investigative medicine". I use modern lab testing and detailed questionnaires to determine the underlying cause of health problems (rather than just suppressing symptoms), and supplements, herbs and nutritional therapy to treat them.

Very uninformed.. I'm concerned that you will be providing harmful information that will hurt the community. Very disconcerting that you would write about nutrition with no training and referencing other blogs instead of peer-reviewed and published studies.

Save your time and money. God complex without the God skills. His staff reflects him...arrogant and incompetent. Very disappointed, Id recommend everyone from the Paleo community or AIMC stay away
