Natural control over blood pressure

One early morning while cutting though the florescent light of a lab waiting room I couldn’t help hearing a heated discussion on blood pressure and how narrow is the view of the medical system if this parameter goes a little bit over. It is shocking that somebody can lose their job over it. The narrow options given to the doctors are only leading to a lifetime treatment. The old “start to exercise” advice is lingering as the last hope of a holistic approach to an unknowing issue. The only option for the western medicine to treat this effect was...

The Shape of Water

Not long ago I was under the impression that we know everything there is to know about water. It seems the water has always been a surprise for the scientists. Many gave up not understanding the water behavior as a whole. As we are mostly made of water one would think that placing a high importance on expensive studies would be the way to find answers for health. The studies on “bodies of water” are just a handful; with results that shake our concept on how water works. These studies open a new realm on how we see water...

The First Step For A Perfect Diet

I like to see myself as a composed and balanced person. Aren’t we all? Certainly with a dash of fun so life is not boring. “Balanced” is a word of many issues when is attached to our biology.

The nutritionists are only looking on balancing the macro nutrients (Fats vs. protein vs. carbs). It is a dangerously narrow view on rather complicated nutritional set...

Addicted To The Morning Coffee

I love to start my morning with a cup of coffee together with millions of us. There is something about that deep, bitter flavor that makes everything else sweeter in the morning. I like my coffee long, like I never want this moment of bliss to end. Some see it as a vice, other are worried if the health benefits are true. The consistent consumption hasn’t been studied on a long term clinical trial. Many things we take for granted aren’t and coffee is not at the top for this kind of research. One main question remains. Does coffee...

The Hunger Games

Lately I have been finding ways how hunger controls us by external factors. I realized after intermittent fasting that I have acquired control over my sense of hunger. I found out how much weight food cues have in my life. I can say now after three months of different fasting techniques that I am able to sit at a table with friends and not have hunger triggered by food itself. It is weird to have control of this switch. Looking at the history of our social culture, I can pin point that this control started around the beginning of...
