A short article about the work of Community Solutions.  While this effort is in use to strengthen the sense of safety and connection in a rough neighborhood, it is a great idea that can easily be replicated in any community.

"In this class, the seniors say they use muscles they haven't used for years. It makes them feel stronger, confident and less vulnerable."

I want to share this again and add a quick highlight (...get to the point...)

You can take a magnesium supplement!  Here are the details...

>300 mg a day is fine but
>Most people benefit from 400 to 1,000 mg a day.
>The most absorbable forms are magnesium citrate, glycinate taurate, or aspartate, although magnesium bound to Kreb cycle chelates (malate, succinate, fumarate) are also good.

>AVOID magnesium carbonate, sulfate, gluconate, and oxide. They are poorly absorbed (and the cheapest and most common forms found in supplements).
 
So.. can't afford to make design changes to influence calm quite yet... ? According to this doctor - you can reduce stress and increase the quality of your life by working on your diet.

The magic word is MAGNESIUM.


He advises:  "Limit coffee, colas, salt, sugar, and alcohol."

And... increase the following in your diet as often as you can:

Kelp, wheat bran, wheat germ, almonds, cashews, buckwheat, brazil nuts, dulse, filberts, millet, pecans, walnuts, rye, tofu, soy beans, brown rice, figs, dates, collard greens, shrimp, avocado, parsley, beans, barley, dandelion greens, and garlic.

Don't like any of the above foods?  Hide them in casseroles, breads, muffins, salads, smoothies, etc.  You will still reap the benefits.  :-)

So, if you decide to take a supplement instead of changing your diet to increase magnesium... be sure to read the label before you buy.... and make sure the good magnesium is in there !!

"What I hope we can accomplish is show people that it works, and be able to now translate that to architects, to people doing the building, so that when they designed the building from start they do it right."

“Although gene-environment interactions are widely believed to contribute to autism risk, this is the first demonstration of a specific interaction between a well-established genetic risk factor and an environmental factor that independently contribute to autism risk,”
