Maybe in 10-years we'll all be talking about millet intolerance instead of gluten intolerance and looking for the millet-free cookies in the grocery store? The priority of this study is whether the food can be grown in drought conditions. But the important question is whether this pseudograin contains the same plant toxins that other more common grains like wheat, rye, oats and brown rice contain. What we would need is more information about how much preparation is required to neutralize the toxins it contains before I'd recommend eating millet regularly.

Most people in the US put millet in the birdfeeder, but Amrita Hazra says we ought to eat it ourselves—and grow it in drought-ridden California.

...and let's add that grains are not sustainable to the fact that they are unhealthy and miserable food, how can we be so silly to recommend them and go on to search an alternative only among them? Isn't it an apparent sign that Someone has only the interest to force them on us at the expense of our health? Are we so blind to go on with this nonsense?

Standing is important. Laughing is also important. Enjoy this one from the satirical Onion. (True in one way - not sitting at a desk all day would be healthier for your body - maybe just not for your budget.)

ROCHESTER, MN—In an effort to help working individuals improve their fitness and well-being, experts at the Mayo Clinic issued a new set of health guidelines Thursday recommending that Americans stand up at their desk, leave their office, and never ...

Functional and 'lifestyle' medicine are poised to play a central role in a revolution in health care, not in small part due to what we are discovering about epigenetics - the way that our external environment can literally turn on and off genes. Toxins, food, light, sleep, stress, pathogens - can all act to change your genetic destiny. This is why it is so important to optimize your environment and personalize your diet. 14four.me can help anyone start optimizing their environment, but my Healthy Baby Code is especially effective because some of the things that have the biggest impact happen to us starting in the womb and on into our early life.

I applaud anyone who hits 35 and decides it is still not too late to run a marathon, or compete in a triathlon. However, this is something people spend years working up to for good reason. Be patient. Take a long view. Ramping up too quickly can backfire.

+Chris Kresser, L.Ac I know many Triathletes still going strong approaching 50 (myself included)! The thing is they have been steady & consistent all their lives ... meaning the benefits outweigh the risks and we are still competitive with any age-group! But yes strenuous exercise past 50 is new territory as few generations have come through as active and healthy as mine .... -  we wait to learn more!

We talk a lot about the impact of stress on optimal health. One less frequently mentioned source of stress, however, is chronic pain. http://bit.ly/1LKYhG7
Chronic pain impacts a large fraction of Americans, a new NIH analysis finds.

Fascinating.
"According to Hinde, when a baby suckles at its mother's breast, a vacuum is created. Within that vacuum, the infant's saliva is sucked back into the mother's nipple, where receptors in her mammary gland read its signals. This "baby spit backwash," as she delightfully describes it, contains information about the baby's immune status. If the mammary gland receptors detect the presence of pathogens, they compel the mother's body to produce antibodies to fight it, and those antibodies travel through breast milk back into the baby's body, where they target the infection."

Learn more about the benefits of breastfeeding at healthybabycode.com.
To produce breast milk, mothers melt their own body fat. Are you with me? We literally dissolve parts of ourselves, starting with gluteal-femoral fat, aka our butts, and turn it into liquid to feed our babies. Before and after giving birth to my daughter 10 months ago, I was inundated with urgent directives from well-meaning, very insistent health practitioners, parenting book authors, mommy bloggers, journalists, and opinionated strangers that "...

While this is just one man's experience, it is a good read and it is an experience for which there is quite a bit of evidence. Quite a number of studies have and continue to explore the relationship between excess refined sugar and brain chemistry, or gut health (which we are learning more and more is connected to the brain).

Consuming refined sugar can impact mood, decision-making, and memory. Here's how good it can be to give it up.

Dr. Chris Masterjohn, a nutritional scientist with expertise in fat-soluble vitamins, has published his preliminary thoughts on Kaayla’s report. If you’ve been following this controversy, I highly recommend reading it.

How do you know if any test is worthwhile? I'll explain what to look for in the methodology before discussing food intolerance tests and their validity or lack thereof.

We already know that both birth itself (natural birth) and breastfeeding play an important role in establishing your healthy microbiome. Here's more evidence that changes to microbiota early in life are important to long term health - although this is not a human trial. http://bit.ly/1Jy6A56
A new study explains the remarkable link between your gut microbes and mental health.

Hidden in the copy of this article that appears to be about heart health is a little gem: "Greater benefits of exercise include increased insulin sensitivity and a reduction in inflammation, the study concludes." Since these are two hallmarks of chronic disease, this is not insignificant.

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.
