Drake Baer – Knowing Your Actual, Literal Heart Reduces Anxiety and Betters Decisions

Given its distance from the brain, neuroscience hasn’t had much to do with the heart quietly thumping in your chest. But to get a fuller picture of the mind, you need to start looking below the neck.

Avoiding spiritual struggles and existential questions is linked with poorer mental health

Fear of confronting the tensions and conflicts brought on by existential concerns—the “big questions” of life—is linked with poorer mental health, including higher levels of depression, anxiety and difficulty regulating emotions, according to a new Case Western Reserve University study.

Dr. Jack Wolfson – Is Heart Disease from a Sulfur Deficiency?

Sulfur is a non-metallic element (number 16) that is a critical nutrient for the body. Unfortunately, so many people don’t consume enough. Over the years, it has been forgotten by the FDA and not added to grains/rice as part of the “fortification” process. Sadly, most diets are deficient in sulfur rich foods like grass fed beef, garlic, onion, and quality eggs. Farmers are not putting sulfur in the soil or feed, therefore plant and animal sulfur content is diminished. ...

What I’m really thinking: the Oxford student

When I tell people I go to Oxford University, they look at me with admiration. “Wow, that’s fantastic,” they say. “You must have the best time there.” There’s not much else to do but smile and agree. You know that, for most people, this is an incredible achievement, but that can’t overcome the feeling of dread you feel at the start of every term.

People say I must be really clever, but most of the time I feel incredibly stupid. At school, I was ...

Larry Schwartz – Is Toothpaste Dangerous to Your Health?

The average American will use 20 gallons of toothpaste in their lifetime, and a new study [3] by the Cornucopia Institute, a non-profit organization that studies ecological best practices, makes clear we should all be concerned about exposure to toxic ingredients found in toothpastes. Chemicals in toothpaste are readily absorbed through the membrane that lines the mouth (oral mucosa), meaning that, regardless of whether you swallow toothpaste or not, you are exposing yourself to some level of absorption. Children, who ...

Parents today have the highest conditioning of fear in the history of humankind. They are scared of everything and it reflects in their children.
