When we sustain an injury, our body responds in a few ways. One of the most common initial responses is to more or less shut down as a form of self-protection.

It’s why you sometimes hear about people who were just in horrific car accidents calmly talking to paramedics even if they have a bone sticking out of their leg. It’s why athletes injured on the playing field may not really recognize the pain until they’re loaded into an ambulance... Read More

These taboo topics also include addiction issues related to drug and alcohol problems. To a degree, this reluctance to talk makes sense. After all, those are complicated problems, and we don’t want to say the wrong thing and sound either ignorant or insensitive. However, there’s a point at which not speaking at all does more damage than saying something well-intended but not exactly correct. We can’t resolve... Read More
Nutritional ketosis revolves around a high fat diet, and this can potentially ease the symptoms of diabetes. Though a low-carbohydrate diet wouldn’t usually be recommended, if nutritional ketosis can reverse type 2 diabetes, it’s worth experimenting.
What’s good about nutritional ketosis is you can maintain a healthy diet, while your body learns to convert fat to energy. This can improve blood sugar levels, and reduce the need for insulin. Research is in the early stages, so it’s important to introduce changes gradually if you intend on sampling this approach, and you might want to contact... Read More
