Suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death for people between the ages of 10-24. Dr. Mark Goulston teaches us how to communicate better with our kids so that they understand they have a purpose on this earth.
As a parent with a child who has ADD or ADHD (or any other neurodevelopmental disorder), you may be stressed trying to find the best ways to support your child. From doctor visits, to meetings with the school counselors, to getting your kids to follow directions, this can really wear you down. So what are some ways to support your child and yourself? Learn more in this episode.
The 5G network is on its way, and soon all major cities will have 5G towers on every single block. That isn’t an exaggeration, while 5G frequencies are much more powerful than previous frequencies, the range at which it travels is much shorter. It is estimated that there will be a 5G tower on nearly every single block in all major cities. This will mean there will be more radio frequency radiation available for our bodies. So why is 5G being installed around the world? And since this is a train that can’t be stopped, what can we do to protect our body from the radiation?
The honeymoon stage of a relationship lasts anywhere up to one year. This is the time when the relationship still feels fresh, you keep learning new things about your partner, and the sex is still fun.
Then something changes. Things start to go stale, especially in the bedroom. Sometimes you notice the changes, other times life gets so busy that you don’t even notice that the intimacy has dropped.
While we think this won’t happen to us, the statistics show that it most likely will happen. It isn’t because we don’t want to be intimate with the other person, it’s because life happens.
But, it doesn’t have to be this way. Especially if you understand your partner’s erotic blueprint, then you will more likely be able to turn your partner on to keep the intimacy alive!

It is estimated that over 50% of homes in the US have some form of mold damage. With so many people living in homes that have been damaged by mold, it is important to take a look into the possible health issues that mold exposure can cause.
While the health issues from mold exposure typically don’t hit the mainstream media, it is becoming more known that mold can wreak havoc on people’s health. Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker has been one of the biggest influencers in the research done on mold toxicity and how it has impacted the health of families, school district employees, and even large companies.
In his books, Surviving Mold and Mold Warriors, he dives deep into the information on toxic buildings and mold. He has countless stories of people who have suffered with misdiagnosed health issues that all relate back to mold exposure.
In the guide below, you will learn the steps to take to test your home, yourself, and to recover from mold toxicity.
Excessive bloating and gas and the different health issues that both underlies and might arise from them is something that a lot of people suffer from, but not a lot of people feel comfortable enough to openly discuss about.
More often than not, people tend to brush it off as an annoying but somewhat tolerable inconvenience. But as it turns out, bloating and gas is not just a mere nuisance. It could be, at the least, an early warning system, or worse, a full-scale distress signal from the gut. So if you are presenting with these two symptoms, it is critical that you start on a more involved investigation.
There are toxins everywhere in the world, and there is no one that hasn’t been exposed to some form of toxin. Even though this may sound depressing, the truth is that we can limit our exposure to toxins.
Not all toxins are made by humans. Even nature tries to poison us in different ways from exposure to toxic fungi to plants and animals that can make us sick.
However, toxins are hidden in plain site within our homes. The mattress cover can contain formaldehyde, many products contain BPA, and many other products contain lists of toxins that can influence our health.
The holidays are right around the corner, which is why I have prepared a very delicious and easy to make Autumn Balsamic Quinoa Salad for you today!
No one wants to work hard around the holidays. I should re-phrase that, we all want relaxation and rest, but no one wants EXTRA work added to their plate. Let’s be honest, we all know it takes a lot of time and effort to pull off the holiday season for our family.
There’s a lot of parties and events to attend and plan! This Autumn Balsamic Quinoa Salad is the perfect side dish to quickly make and bring to those exact events. You could even add cooked chicken or another form of protein to make it a main dish!
We decide every year that we are going to grow zucchini in our garden. Having access to your own fresh zucchini is amazing. This year it felt like we were drowning in zucchini though! We were picking multiple 4 plus pound zucchini’s every day for a few weeks during harvest time! I knew it was time to make a bunch of batches of chocolate zucchini bread.
By the end of the season, I was pushing and pulling a wheelbarrow stuffed to the gills with multi pound zucchini and spaghetti squash to my garage with a smile on my face and sweat dripping down my back. Now that is what I call a true fall harvest. Throw in a little rain, colorful leaves, and some crisp air and I was ready to go and carve a pumpkin!
I am going to be completely honest, zucchini is not my favorite vegetable. *GASP* How dare I say something like that!? Well, it is true, but you know what is really great?? I have a creative mind and can find sneaky ways for people like me to consume vegetables that I may not necessarily love on their own.
When you imagine someone who is hypermobile, what comes to mind? Do you think of a contortionist whose hypermobile joints can bend in ways unimaginable? Or what about the people who can pull their finger back all the way to their wrist?
While both of those examples are of people with hypermobile tendencies, it does not mean that they are immune to joint pain and health issues. In fact, many people with increased flexibility tend to run into a lot of health issues, including digestive disorders.
Many people are starting to suffer from a condition known as chronic fatigue. Chronic fatigue is defined as fatigue that doesn’t go away with rest.
Fatigue is a very broad topic that can have many different causes. Naturally we feel some levels of fatigue from the stress of daily life, but in many cases this should be remedied with adequate rest. Therefore chronic states of exhaustion is caused by something more underlying, such as an undiagnosed illness.
The gut microbiome is one of the most powerful regions of the human body. A lot of research is coming out about the importance of the bacteria in the body, and Kiran Krishnan is one of the researchers leading the way for all of us.
The microbiome is made of around 1500 different strains of bacteria that all work together to keep the body healthy. Of the 1500 strains, we only understand around 10% of their total functionality.
With more research coming out every single day, soon we will be able to understand how each strain of bacteria impacts the body.
You may have noticed that we have quite a few episodes that are focused on children and ways to improve their health. In fact, it saddens me that there are so many children out there who are suffering from conditions with little understanding of why it is happening. This is why we keeping bringing up the topic about ways to make children healthy again.
I focus on children a lot because they aren’t in the best position to know what’s best for themselves. They go off of what they have been taught, so it is important as adults that we stay up to date with why each generation is getting sicker.
A common theme that you may have heard between episodes is that the food we are eating is not the best for children, or even adults. Processed foods are stripped of nutrients, sanitized in ways we don’t want to know about, and are designed to make us snack more often.
It seems like every single day we have more advancements in the research done on the human microbiome. Word has spread about the gut microbiome, and the genitalia microbiome. But new development is coming out in areas of the body we least expect it.
Such as the Ocular Microbiome, better known as the bacteria of the eye.
Researchers have discovered an ecosystem of the microbiome within the eye. In these early stages of research, the eye is showing to have a much smaller population of bacteria than other areas of the body, such as the gut. This does not mean that the ocular microbiome isn’t important. In fact, it could tell us more about how to protect the eye and how to prevent eye disease.
