Gut Biology And Health
What is the science behind how the gut works? How it functions & its importance is fascinating & necessary in understanding what can we learn from the gut.
There are so many interesting things about how our gut microbiome works in our bodies, from helping us to digest foods, to strengthening our immune system, to helping us regulate our mood and hormones. But how does it all work in tandem?
Why We Are Designed to Be Healthy
There is nothing natural about being sick. In a perfect world, we might live forever. Being that's not the case there are numerous reasons why being healthy is important to each of us in the short term and long term for optimal health.
What exactly does it mean to be healthy, and why is sickness just not a natural state of being. No. Being sick is not natural. Being healthy is it's what we're designed to be. There is nothing natural about having a body that is imbalanced, tired, sick, and in pain. There are no so called diseases in nature. There are no animals with rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, multiple sclerosis or asthma.
Vegetable Amino Acids
What are the best vegetable protein food sources to use? Can you build a healthy body using only vegetable protein as food from protein sources?
I'd like to discuss more in detail about the real issue regarding obtaining proteins from mates versus proteins from plants and whether it's the same, you know there is information on both sides. This isn't here to sway you one way or another. The main pointed to remember here is that the proteins from meats and proteins, they're not the same.
Hydration From Foods
Did you know that water can be eaten? When it comes to whole foods like fresh fruits and vegetables, within it, there is water that can be eaten.
The author of the book “The science of cell Water” wrote that the water you drink “will go right through you,” and take any nutrition with it. Hydration is about the water you preserve and it's no longer about the amount of water you drink.
Molecules that facilitate the entry of water into the cells is naturally found in fruits and veggies. This process of cell hydration occurs slowly and lasts longer than simply drinking a glass of water.
What Does It Mean To Be Holistically Healthy?
Is there a way to look at holistic nutrition as a foundation for a healthy lifestyle? The bottom line is that is formed around "healthy eating" habits and nutrition, but how do we do that? I'm going to be discussing the second pillar of health necessary to be holistically healthy, and that's being nutritionally or digestively strong.
Whether we realize it our not, our nutrition is ultimately tied to physical health. I believe it is so critical that it should have it's own pillar and could actually stand alone. Part of this is because getting the full value of nutrition is customized based on each individual's age, sex, activity level, and body chemistry; every is totally different. This in order for us to strengthen this pillar, careful attention should be placed on your diet and that you give specific focus on digestion.
Are there any guidelines we should follow about nutrition. Would you be surprised if I said I have 10 nutritional guidelines? Why does that matter and why is nutrition important to health?
When it comes to health, there has to be a healthy balance of nutrition and especially surrounding our guidelines to better health. In this episode of The Mental Minute, I share my thoughts on how to create healthy meal times with my own top 10 list.

Nutrition Guidelines Don't Apply To You
Have you ever wonder why nutrition is wrong or that the information you find on the internet doesn't apply to you? The biggest mistakes of nutrition facts is exactly that: not everything you read applies to you.
I'd really like to begin a discussion about the generalization, or really the oversimplification of the dietary guidelines find on the interwebs today. The biggest fallacy known to mankind is thinking that the nutritional information that you hear about or read about applies 100 percent to you. Rarely, if ever, it does, and it's a good starting point, it's never a good ending point because we're all completely different.
Don't Be Reactive About Your Health
Are there any healthy lifestyle changes you should follow to lose weight? Weight loss and mental health require you to think about how to be proactive about your health This encompasses healthy lifestyle changes surrounding food.
Are you making the necessary healthy lifestyle changes in order to improve your digestion and gut health? If you believe you are, the next logical question should be whether you are being proactive or reactive when it comes to improving your digestion.
How To Deal With Cheat Meals?
Recently, I had a lengthy discussion about foods and how many people, especially in the fitness industry, use certain kinds of foods as rewards for doing something “good” for their body. You know the routine... “if I do 30 minutes on the cardio machine, then I can have that drink/get that dessert/order those onion rings instead of veggies. It got fairly heated because I attempted to dispel that idea altogether.⠀
It's important to note that there is a correlation between your gut and essentially every other function in our bodies. Most people associate it will “feeling bad”, but there is more and more evidence pointing to the relationship between gut health and mental health. But let's look at this more in-depth.
