Try New Things:
Focus on Being Unfocused

With our jam packed schedules, never ending list of things to do, and goals that we consistently focus on achieving, we lose time to let our brains re-energize and create connections. Too much focus can deplete brain energy, lessen your sense of self, and blocks anticipation for the future. 

Could focusing on your goals actually hurt your outcome? Harvard Psychiatrist Srini Pillay thinks it is more effective for your brain to unfocus from time to time. He suggests you take a nap, doodle on your papers, and most importantly, Daydream! In this episode you get his four points on why you should focus on being unfocused!

Did You Know?
Metabolic Therapies Prevent Chronic Disease
  • Mounting evidence shows conditions such as Alzheimer's and cancer are metabolic diseases, which means you can prevent, treat and recover from them like other metabolic conditions, such as Type 2 diabetes and heart disease
  • A number of experts and researchers are now convinced the answer to our burgeoning cancer and Alzheimer's epidemics is a ketogenic diet and other metabolic support, such as fasting, hyperbaric oxygen treatment and dietary supplementation
  • During fasting or ketosis, your brain switches to using ketone bodies derived from dietary fats as its primary fuel, and ketones have potent neuroprotective effects and enhance brain function
  • Healthy cells have the metabolic flexibility to use either glucose or ketones (obtained through your diet from carbohydrates and healthy fats respectively), whereas cancer cells cannot use ketones for fuel due to having damaged mitochondria
  • Nutritional ketosis prevents and combats cancer by optimizing mitochondrial function, decreasing blood glucose and insulin, increasing tissue oxygenation, decreasing free radical generation, downregulating oncogenes and upregulating tumor suppressor genes

Arterosil Artery Support

The endothelial glycocalyx is a microscopically thin gel-like layer that coats the entire luminal side of the vascular endothelium. It is the key to endothelial health because it prevents cholesterol and other particles from adhering to or penetrating the endothelial wall.

The endothelial glycocalyx is a delicate structure and can be damaged under many conditions. The primary contributors to breakdown of the endothelial glycocalyx are high blood glucose, oxidative stress (such as smoking) and inflammation. 

The primary active ingredient in Arterosil ® is derived from a rare green seaweed.  Green seaweed polysaccharides have been reported to possess anticoagulant and antithrombotic activity.  The polysaccharide in Arterosil ®  has a similar chemical structure to heparan sulfate found abundantly in human endothelial glycocalyx and may exert its biological activities by regenerating endothelial glycocalyx.
