Many of us are, as our ancient hunter gatherer metabolisms haven’t caught up to our modern-day life styles. While you should be able to effectively transition and alternate fuel sources, burning either carbs or fat for energy, a lot of people develop insulin resistance, compromising their efficiency at both. No longer nimble at either one, this lack of flexibility unleashes a cascade of events, resulting in insulin insensitivity and inflammation, a condition at the root of most, if not all chronic health conditions.  Resolving this problem is critical to your brain functioning at its best and avoiding the high price...

2017 Nobel Prize in Medicine sheds “Light on Light”, the science of shut eye

Three scientists:  Hall, Rosbash and Young, were recognized in Stockholm this year, for their fundamental research on how humans, animals and plants, sync up their biological clocks with the earth’s revolutions. Your important bodily functions work on a 24-hour cycle, regulated by a gene and a group of proteins that work together to control your daily rhythms. This precise clockwork functions at...
