Green space in urban areas may be more than just pretty to look at. It may help keep us sane. A new study from researchers at Stanford University suggests that walking in natural surroundings may reduce rumination (repetitive thought focused on negative aspects of the self), a known contributing factor to depression and mental illness, while walking in a city shows no similar benefit.

From the abstract:
"We show in healthy participants that a brief nature experience, a 90-min walk in a natural setting, decreases both self-reported rumination and neural activity in the subgenual prefrontal cortex (sgPFC), whereas a 90-min walk in an urban setting has no such effects on self-reported rumination or neural activity. In other studies, the sgPFC has been associated with a self-focused behavioral withdrawal linked to rumination in both depressed and healthy individuals. This study reveals a pathway by which nature experience may improve mental well-being and suggests that accessible natural areas within urban contexts may be a critical resource for mental health in our rapidly urbanizing world."

I recently posted "When Gluten-Free Is Not a Fad" (http://bit.ly/1B1zrth). Look who else is talking about it:
"In my opinion the research combined with the results gained in my practice tells me that gluten sensitivity is a real thing." - Robb Wolf http://bit.ly/1wEK1ea #glutensensitivity

Upcoming Free Webinar:
Gas, bloating, consitipation, diarrhea, acid reflux, or similar? You may want to join me for this free webinar with my friends Jordan Reasoner and Steven Wright from SCD lifestyle. In the webinar we'll talk about gut infections, gut microbiome, inflammation and chronic illness - and what's working clinically to get rid of these problems.

Jordan and Steve are also the creators of the Solving Leaky Gut program. The last time we all did a joint webinar we got a great response and their program has helped 1000's of people who maybe can't find or can't afford to see a skilled functional medicine practitioner.

A recent study showed that a low-carbohydrate diet produced greater improvements in #glycemic control and reductions in inflammatory cytokines than a low-fat diet, though both led to similar reductions in body weight. http://1.usa.gov/1BAJJEM

As far back as 2012, researchers were exploring the connection between auto immune pathogenesis and impaired intestinal barrier function like that found in cases of SIBO and 'leaky gut.’ http://1.usa.gov/1NG0Ite

And the mainstream is still denying the evidence...our lords need to hide and deny the truth...folks wake up and look with your own eyes, not with the eyes of our lords lobbies

You know that saying made famous by workaholics - "I'll sleep when I'm dead." Well, they may be getting their wish a lot sooner than they think - and a worse quality of life between now and then. Take a look at 14 ways the body suffers when you don't sleep enough. http://huff.to/1R9tusm

Summertime. Picnics. Holiday. Family reunions. There are so many places where you find tempting bags of potato chips. I get my fix anytime I want by making these delicious home made taro chips. Here's our recipe we use at home. http://bit.ly/1H4y2bJ

An old podcast, but a good one with my guest Dan Pardi about sleep: "the risk seems to be that lack of sleep or chronic sleep restriction will increase your risk for obesity about 55%.” http://bit.ly/1IrEv2t
I'm excited to have Dan Pardi as a guest on today's show. I met Dan at PaleoFX last March, and we instantly hit it off. As a PhD candidate sleep researcher at the University of Leiden in the Nether...

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

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

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.
