      Science Daily shares some really intriguing findings in this piece. It's called Rejuvenating the Brain With Stem Cells.

      In it, scientists reveal some really thought-provoking findings. Here's one of them:

      It is well known that individuals learn to navigate in a new environment in a different way depending on whether they are young or old. When young, the brain can build and remember a cognitive map of the environment but this ability fades away in older brains. As an alternative solution to the problem, older brains without a cognitive map of the environment need to learn the fixed ...

    10. Neurotransmitters and How They Affect You and Your Entire Body

      Neurotransmitters and How They Affect You and Your Entire Body

      Discovered this interesting piece by Deane Alban of Be Brain Fit and it really caught our attention. It's called Balancing Neurotransmitters to Take Control of Your Life.

      In it, she shares some intriguing discoveries. Here’s one of them:

      Tryptophan is the amino acid precursor, or building block, of serotonin.

      It’s found mainly in protein-rich foods like meat, eggs, fish, and dairy.

      So, theoretically, eating tryptophan-rich foods should raise serotonin levels, but the relationship between serotonin, tryptophan, and food is not that straightforward.

      Unexpectedly, both tryptophan and serotonin levels drop after eating a meal containing protein.

    11. Understanding Pain More Deeply

      Understanding Pain More Deeply

      Here's a compelling article from Rachel Zoffness. It's called What Changes Pain?

      It shares some perceptive insights. Here’s one that’s particularly thought-provoking:

      Pain is not an accurate indicator of tissue damage. You can experience terrible pain in the complete absence of bodily harm (e.g., a nail in the shoe but not the foot), and little pain in the presence of significant damage (e.g. a nail to the face!). That is: just because something hurts does not necessarily mean your body is in danger of harm. “Hurt” and “harm” are not the same.

    13. The Relationship Between Inflammation and Sleep

      The Relationship Between Inflammation and Sleep

      Came across this absorbing article from Psychology Today. It's called 5 Things You Might Not Know About Inflammation.

      In it, Michael Breus Ph. D shares some of his perceptive insights on the relationship between inflammation and sleep. Here’s one that’s particularly thought-provoking:

      Circadian rhythms also regulate our immune system, and with it, our levels of inflammation. When circadian rhythms are disrupted, so is normal immune function. We’re more prone to unhealthful inflammation, and more at risk for diseases, including metabolic disease, cancer, and heart disease.

      Chronic Illness and Post-Traumatic Growth

      I’ve had the opportunity this month to speak to patients, clinicians, and graduate-level social work students about my therapeutic work with people living with chronic illness.

      Trapped in a Vicious Cycle of Worry About Your Adult Child?

      Is your adult child chronically dependent on you? And more than a little resentful despite all you do?

      Being dependent does not only affect families where chemical dependency is an issue. It is seen where other addictions are present as well as where anxiety, depression, and personality issues manifest and define the members’ daily lives. This dependence robs us of a kind of strength or ability to focus on ourselves.

      5 Ways to Help Your Partner Be Their Best Self

      Good relationships help us be the best versions of ourselves. When you know your partner very well, you can use that knowledge to help them grow.

      1. Bridge the gap - help them with a step in one of their goals that's difficult for them.

      Years ago, my spouse, who is a medical doctor, expressed the desire to do medical volunteer work overseas. However, many options required too long of a volunteering commitment, involved working in very remote areas, or gave no choice about the country of work.

      Commentary: Distracted snacking could put your health and waistline at risk

      Most people do not realise how easy it is to over-consume calories while snacking, says an expert.

      SHEFFIELD: Cakes, biscuits and energy bars are, for many people, just staples of everyday life – the snacks that keep them going through the day.

      But most people do not realise how easy it is to over-consume calories while snacking. In some countries, women are advised to consume 2,000 calories a day, and men, 2,500.

    18. Tiny transporters could deliver treatment to stroke patients

      Tiny transporters could deliver treatment to stroke patients

      Swarms of nanoparticles which are 15,000 times smaller than a pinhead may be able to deliver vital drugs to the brain, offering new hope to patients in the early stages of a stroke.

      The research, carried out at The University of Manchester, shows that tiny vesicles called liposomes, just 100 nanometres in diameter can translocate through the damaged blood brain barrier following stroke.

      And that may offer a way to get vital drugs to the lesions to stop further damage.

      Increase in physical activity after breast cancer diagnosis may lower risk of death

      At least 150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity physical activity, such as brisk walking, post diagnosis is associated with lower all-cause mortality among postmenopausal breast cancer patients, regardless of their levels of physical activity before diagnosis, according to a study published in the open access journal Breast Cancer Research.

      Genetic testing leads woman to take steps to avoid breast cancer: ‘I’m one of the lucky ones’

      MILWAUKEE — The earlier you catch breast cancer, the better your odds are of beating it. That is the idea behind the FOX6 initiative, Buddy Check 6.

      Birthdays are a time to celebrate — especially the big ones like turning 30 years old — which is what Antonina Sendik was doing last month.

      “I’m one of the lucky ones,” Sendik said.

      In fact, you might say Sendik is just starting her life.

      Thought we’d share this fascinating article from the Science Daily. It’s titled Some Skin Cancers May Start in Hair Follicles.

      It offers some stimulating ideas. Here’s one that we thought was genuinely noteworthy:

    22. The Importance of B12 for Brain Health

      The Importance of B12 for Brain Health

      Here's a compelling article from Deane Alban. It's called How Vitamin B12 Benefits the Brain.

      It makes some interesting points on Vitamin B12. Here’s one that’s particularly fascinating:

      Many seniors diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s are in fact “only” B12-deficient and can make remarkable recoveries when their low B12 levels are addressed.

      This misdiagnosis occurs because the symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency closely mimic that of these diseases.

      Should You Still Workout When You're Sick?

      Found this interesting piece by Dr Ryan Andrews of Precision Nutrition. It's called Exercise When Sick: Should You Sweat it Out or Should You Rest and Recover?

      It shares some intriguing points. Here’s one of them:

      When we’re sick, the stress of a tough workout can be more than our immune systems can handle.

      Still, there’s no reason to dive for the couch the minute you feel the sniffles coming on. Unless you’re severely out of shape, non-strenuous movement shouldn’t hurt you — and it might even help.
