Getting the message // Did you know brain cells talk to each other via chemical messengers called neurotransmitters. These neurotransmitters are made up of protein. So getting enough protein is essential for clarity of thought and creative thinking among the myriad other things we already think of protein for (muscle building, blood sugar balance, etc)⠀
A simple way to calculate how much protein you need per day is to multiply your weight in kilograms by 0.8. This will give you a number to aim for. If you are quite active or pregnant, multiply your weight by 1.3 instead.⠀
Some good sources of protein include:⠀
Nuts and seeds⠀
Lean red meat⠀
Legumes such as lentils, chickpeas, beans⠀
Tofu and tempeh⠀
Differences between Under and Over Methylation in regards with biochemistry.
The common biochemistry of UNDERMETHYLATION is:
1. High blood histamine
2. High basophil count
3. Low plasma zinc
4. Elevated serum copper
5. Low homocysteine
6. High heavy metals
7. Low levels of the neurotransmitters serotonin, dopamine and norrpinephrine.
The common biochemistry of an OVERMETHYLATION is:
1. Low blood histamine
2. Low basophil count
3. Low plasma zinc
4. Elevated copper
5. Elevated levels of the neurotransmitters serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine.
This is such an easy blend, but it has profound effects. Each of these oils are known to balance neurotransmitters and open neurotransmitter receptor sites. It's no accident that it works. It can also work as a sleep aid, especially if you just can't shut your mind off at night. For sleep aid, I recommend adding 2 drops of Vetiver and 2 drops of Cedarwood.
Having an absolutely insanely crazy day. So hectic I haven't even had time to start the diffuser. I have my trusty bottle of Bergamot by my side to inhale as needed. LOL. What's your favorite oil for peace, clarity and calmness? Please list single oils. No blends this time. ☺️
Baked salmon with dill and lemon, mashed potatoes (with the skin on for lots of potassium) used bone broth instead of milk and used grassfed butter, kale salad with olive oil, lemon juice, raw garlic, salt, and red pepper flakes, & some 🥑😊😊
Troubles du comportement et de l'humeur? Troubles du Sommeil?
Vous manquez peut-être de dopamine & sérotonine, neurotransmetteurs essentiel au cerveau !
La dopamine agit comme régulateurs de l'humeur, du métabolisme et comme stimulants du système nerveux et de la circulation sanguine. .
La sérotonine influence de façon positive le comportement et l'humeur mais aussi l'appétit, le sommeil et dans plusieurs processus, tels que la thermorégulation, le cycle veille-sommeil, la perception de la douleur, le comportement alimentaire et sexuel.
Cette association apporte équilibre en vitamines, minéraux... &, acides aminés pour la fabrication de la dopamine et sérotonine pour notre plus grand bonheur et sommeil !
Magret de canard dégraissé, potimarron, betterave et brocolis rôties, salade de roquette betterave et carotte, algues et germe de blé, graines germées.
This is a quick, easy blend to increase confidence and self acceptance. If you don't like to use that many drops in your diffuser, it's fine to use one drop of each oil. This blend is known to be calming and uplifting, while also balancing the neurotransmitters in the brain and "cleaning" the cellular receptor sites in the brain. Essential oils are amazing.

I'll share a simpler blend tomorrow. This blend does a great job of combining oils known to increase self acceptance with oils known to be uplifting, grounding, and calming. This is a great blend to diffuse while making prospecting phone calls, contacting customer service to correct errors, practicing for speaking engagements, or preparing marketing materials. ❤️
Tyrosine is an amino acid precursor for the synthesis of thyroid hormones, melanin (the pigment responsible for skin and hair colour) and the neurotransmitters dopamine and noradrenaline, as well as being incorporated into proteins.
It is found in a number of foods including almonds, fish, lima beans, poultry & eggs, avocados, oats, dairy products, sesame & pumpkin seeds, bananas and oats.
Tyrosine may be used therapeutically for conditions such as anxiety, stress, memory, cognitive function & mental endurance, hypertension, depression, Parkinson’s disease, improved exercise tolerance, PMS and improved thyroid function.
A recent research review has found tyrosine may benefit healthy individuals during short-term stressful or cognitively demanding situations.
Wishing you sweet dreams. The main reason I like this blend is because it's so different. Feel free to add Lavender, Valerian, Vetiver, Chamomile, Marjoram, or any other essential oil known to have sedative properties.
My face when people say eggs aren't healthy 😫😫😂😂😂 Now, I have to agree with you that factory farmed eggs are unhealthy yes. If we are what we eat, so are chickens. If they are crammed in a small living space eating each other's poop, dead chickens, genetically modified soy and corn (high in omega 6 which too much causes inflammation in them and us) and no bugs or grass then yes those eggs will be unhealthy, BUT if you get pasture raised chickens or raise your own chickens that are eating a diet high in omega 3s, leftover organic veggies and fruits, grass, bugs, nuts & seeds, you better believe those eggs are good for you, packed full of nutrients. I'm all about science based, but let's use some common sense too people. 😁 🐔🐔💗💗💗 Question those studies that say eggs are bad for you. How long was the study done? What did the chickens eat that this person was getting their eggs from? What did the person's diet consist of when this study was done?
This was some leftover fruits and veggies from prepping dinner tonight for our chickens.
Your only as smart as your diet! Think about this for a second. That may sound a bit extreme but is it?
For the brain and body to operate at maximum output , essential nutrients are required. Various macro and micronutrients all play a vital role. .
A thought is at least partially the expressions (let’s save spiritual beliefs for a separate discussion) of numerous biochemical interactions. Many of which are dictated by interactions between neurotransmitters. These neurotransmitters are largely constructed out of various amino acids. Therefore the important of quality protein cannot be underplayed in enhancing cognitive performance. Additionally, essential fats can help regulate brain inflammation. The list of important brain nutrients can go on and on. Point being, a balanced diet supports a healthy mind.
Food is not just some thing we eat when we are hungry or a delicious treat to satisfy a craving. Food is US! The quality of your food contributes to the quality of life you can achieve!
(via) @dr.jess.md - I have had a number of Skype consults with you guys and so many of you suffer from debilitating #anxiety , #panic attacks, and #depression . .
One of the first things I address is DIET. Eating a standard American diet full of processed foods, sugar, boxed snacks, dairy and factory farmed meat can feed and therefore, repopulate negative bacterial colonies in the gut. (Or even parasites 🐛-check out my IG story if you'd like to see pics sent to me from patients on #Microbiomemaster -they're dispelled from the bowels or even come out of the skin) These bacterial colonies "talk" to your brain via the #vagusnerve , where they send signals that control your mood, immunity and even hormones. 85% of your immunity and 90% of your #serotonin receptors are in GALT & enterochromaffin cells in the gut. It all begins in the gut! Correcting diet is essential when fighting mood disorders. #NOWHEAT#NOSUGAR#NOPASTA#NOBREAD#NOGLUTEN#NOPESTICIDES .
For example, when #Candida toxin, acetaldehyde reacts with the neurotransmitter dopamine, it can cause mental and emotional disturbances such as anxiety, depression, poor concentration, and brain fog. This not only happens with candida, but negative bacteria like E Coli or Firmicutes can influence these neurotransmitter changes .
Another great way to target therapy is to order the organic acids test (OAT test) made by Great Plains labs. They analyze, amongst other things, the levels of byproducts from #neurotransmitters in the urine and can tell which genetic changes may have occurred which lead to anxiety or depression. Genetic testing is necessary to target proper therapy plus is always good to know what #epigenetic changes you may be passing onto your offspring! #sharingiscaring
