This study found that sleep was improved for those obese, middle-aged adults who lost weight using a higher protein weight loss diet compared to those participants who consumed a normal amount of protein over 4 months.
Overweight and obese adults who are losing weight with a high-protein diet are more likely to sleep better, according to new research from Purdue University.

Do microwaves destroy the nutrients in food? Do they make food toxic to our bodies? Here’s what I found. http://bit.ly/1Te5IGP

Having a close, warm maternal relationship seems to lower risk factors for chronic diseases later on in life. This can be especially true for those who came from disadvantaged backgrounds where financial and personal resources did not allow access to healthy lifestyles.
Can good mothering protect against cardiovascular problems later in life?

Every mucosal surface on your body is colonized by a distinct group of microbes, including your gut, lungs, and nasal passages. Far from causing harm, these microbes “teach” your immune system to tolerate dietary proteins and other harmless allergens in the environment. Read on to learn how disruption of your resident microbes might be associated with your allergies, and learn what steps you can take to alleviate your worst symptoms.

I keep thinking I need to do more of this. I mean, I take a supplement and eat some fermented foods. I avoid antibiotics and sanitizers etc. But I had my appendix out 45 years ago so I think that makes colonization of bacteria more difficult. And I don't get nearly enough contact with the soil or animals. 

I have a VLC diet which means I might need more fermentable fiber. I just can't get my fingers in the dirt enough so I might have to try that skin and hair biome product I read about...

Maybe I can have a little oatmeal in the mornings. Not enough to spike my BG but enough to at least give the bacteria a chance.

Restless legs keeping you up at night? Anywhere from 4 to 29 percent of people suffer from restless leg syndrome (RLS) which can be major contributor towards loss of sleep. Here are four steps you can take to improve your symptoms.

Bacteria thought to play a part in breaking down the toxic chemicals introduced by smoking were found to be much less prevalent in smokers' mouths than non-smokers' mouths, while bacteria that causes tooth decay was much higher. One more reason not to smoke.

Those of you who follow me know that it's important to manage your stress for the sake of your overall health. Stress reduction is just one benefit of meditation. Take a look at the infographic below to see other benefits of daily meditation.

Turns out that there may be more to having dinner together as a family than just catching up. This article suggests that family dinner also may fall into the category of “authoritative parenting”, parenting that provides structure with warmth and one of the best parenting style for raising happy, well-balanced kids.
Regular meals serve as an easily measured proxy for one of longest-standing and sturdiest determinants of adolescent well-being: authoritative parenting.

Systemic inflammation – the body’s response, through the production of white blood cells and other substances, to infection or other threats – is associated with nearly every modern chronic disease, from arthritis to Alzheimer’s to autoimmune disorders to gastrointestinal diseases.

Having a little dark chocolate before you work out may allow your cells to take in more blood sugar and up your release of nitric oxide, all of which can give you a bit of an energy boost. The key word in this article is “little”; participants were allowed 40 grams per day or about 1 ½ squares.
Cyclists performed better after two weeks of supplementing with dark chocolate, compared to those who ate white chocolate or their usual diets.

One more study linking chemicals in plastics to a rise in endocrine health issues, this time in female infertility. My advice – use glass and stainless steel as much as possible for food storage containers and water travel containers. https://chriskresser.com/what-the-plastics-industry-doesnt-want-you-to-know/
More and more women are finding it difficult to get pregnant, with mounting evidence suggesting chemicals used in plasticisers and pesticides are responsible. The consequences are estimated to cost the EU €1.4 billion per year. EurActiv Germany reports.

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.

Hi Dear Chris: I am very impress by the information you are sharing with us - the people suffering from IBS or other digestive problems. Since the last five years I have been having horrible diverticulatis flares, after reading your articles,and taking notes, I am ready to make the changes in my diet to be a healthy and happy human being. Thanks, Luz Daugherty

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
