Why should I care about meditation?

According to a fascinating article at Experience Life, there are many benefits to meditation that affect the brain and the whole body. Here's a short list: 
  1. Meditation can reduce anxiety and depression, according to a 2014 Johns Hopkins University meta-analysis of nearly 19,000 studies by researchers.
  2. Meditation helps reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol. This supports a sharper memory, healthier weight, and better sleep, multiple studies show.  
  3. Multiple studies show that meditation improves your attention span. One study, published in 2007 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, shows that doing daily meditation sessions over just five days makes you more focused and attentive. 
  4. A study by the Shamatha Project - an ambitious body of meditation research started at the Center for Mind and Brain at the University of California, Davis - found that meditators' moods steadily improved over a three-month period. 
  5. According to a 2003 study published in Psychosomatic Medicine, meditation increases antibody levels, helping the body fight off illnesses and infections.

Pollen, dry weather and wind, OH MY!

Allergies kicking your butt?
We know allergies happen because of immune dysregulation, in part due to loss of T regulator cell (T reg) balance. T reg cells have a major play in oral tolerance, " the capacity of the immune system to recognize substances taken in through the digestive system and to weaken or suppress the immune response to them," and allergy response (including magnitude of response). How did we lose it? Stress, medicine, exposure to chemicals, microbiome compromise, inflammatory food/drink consumption, poor sleep habits, and the list goes on. While you and Dr. Neale work on improving T regulator cell balance, try these allergy symptom reducing remedies.

Try these remedies: 
  • Netti Pot with 2 drops
    of Euphrasia (liquid herb) per pot or a pinch a sea salt per pot, twice a day.
  • Medi-Herb's Sinus Forte, taking 2 tablets every couple hours during an acute attack can markedly reduce your reactivity.
  • Golden Milk Turmeric Tea GET RECIPE or Bone broth to heal gut/all ties to gut immune tissue GET RECIPE.
  • Warming socks, daily to reduce sinus pressure and congestion. Read more: GET INSTRUCTIONS.
  • Eat and drink, clean! 
  • Up your probiotic game and increase diversity, switch to HMF Multi 50 during high pollen-count months.

dr. neale's blog: plan. do. ask for help. 
Failure isn't the opposite of success.  It's part of it!

If you haven't failed a lot, its because you haven't tried a lot.  Not changing means you aren't new for the better over time. Since changing is the only way to keep pace, it means by default, by not trying to transform, you've changed - well -  umm - to put it gently, not for the better.

Why? Because math. 

Challenge is what changes us, no? If you challenge a muscle, what happens? It grows. You challenge a pimple, what happens? It resolves. You challenge a thought, what happens? It evolves. You challenge your brain, what happens? It learns. You challenge your lungs, what happens? They expand. You challenge your emotions, what happens? You yell at people, and for good reason, they are due for change too. 

It's mathtastic.

"I am tired of trying without results." Giving yourself a try, saying yes to you, is an opportunity to change yourself, for the better. What power you have! Plan. Do. Ask for help.  READ THE REST AND GET THE REHYDRATE RECIPE.
