    Finding the trigger. Food rotation

    The heat brought back some memories. How often do you experience these recollections of the past through your senses? I had mine some weeks ago and it made me experience a vivid memory of an event that took place 11 years ago. 11 years!  It was in the middle of June, a very hot Berlin summer, when I experienced for the first time in my life a cold sensation in some of my extremities. My hands and feet suddenly went numb and I could feel a shivering cold invading my body to the point where I lost all sense of feeling. A very awkward sensation. On that exact day, I…

    Exercise and Hormones

    Hormones are chemical messengers that facilitate communication between the multitude of biological systems and glands within our body. They are part of the endocrine system, which is a series of glands that produce and secrete hormones that the body uses to control cellular functions.

    What Is The Microbiome?

    Our gastrointestinal (GI) tract is an ecosystem – a collection of microorganisms that differ in number, type, and function throughout it. There are approximately 10 times as many microorganisms in it (approximately 100 trillion) as there are cells in the body. While most of the microbes are bacteria, the gut can also harbor yeasts, single-cell eukaryotes, viruses, fungi, archaea, and small parasitic worms. The majority is found within the large bowel where they contribute to digesting food, fermentation of undigested food components, especially carbohydrates/fiber, absorbing and synthesizing nutrients like phytonutrients, and to fecal bulk. Some of the most commonly found or recognized genera of gut bacteria in adults are Bifidobacterium,…

    Managing Cravings

    All of us have experienced food cravings at some point in our lives. After all, we all share the same type of physiology, we are wired with emotions, and everyone has the faculty of creating thoughts. All these different kinds of biochemical, physical, and bio-psychological processes take place in our body every single day. So, when a single part suffers an alteration, many parts that are directly connected get affected too. The distinction between hunger vs. food cravings takes place at this point. Hunger is a physiological response in the body that happens in response to the cells being low in nutrition and energy, and also being inflamed. Hunger leads…
