The human body has evolved in an environment of scarcity and uncertainty. This has created numerous metabolic pathways and adaptations into our physiology that promote high performance and optimal health.

In the modern world, people don’t experience that same variation and cycling in their life. We eat the same foods, follow similar routines, and do certain activities all the time. This can lead to stagnation, digestive issues, inflammation, and disease.

Metabolic flexibility refers to your ability to swap between different fuel sources and be able to metabolize different foods without suffering any negative side-effects. It’s a signature of a robust and well-functioning metabolism.

In this episode, Siim will talk about the characteristics of metabolic flexibility, intermittent fasting, strategies for building it, and other principles of optimal nutrition and meal timing.

As well symptoms may not immediately present at the onset of the condition. As a result having a doctor help you with any questions that you have may prove beneficial.

The Power of Permissions for Healing May Be in the Name

As a practitioner of energy healing modalities these past 15+ years, I’ve learned a great deal about the importance of having permission from your client. It may seem obvious that someone going to the trouble of making an appointment and driving to the office has given permission for healing. What most people don’t realize, and what I’ve learned is there is both conscious and subconscious permission.

The Energy Healing Practitioner Needs to Stay Out of the Way

When I was in college I was actively involved in the Charismatic Renewal of the Catholic Church. This was my introduction to mysticism. I learned about praying with people for healing and letting God do what God thought was best. This same wisdom is taught in alternative healing classes involving energy modalities.

The Importance of Communicating With the Body in Energy Based Healing

I was first introduced to energy healing through a program called Healing Touch and then Reiki. Later I took Pranic Healing. In these modalities I depended upon my intuition to direct me in what to do and where to work first. Now I use muscle testing or applied kinesiology to know what to do first.

Mind-Body Psychology, Psychoneuroimmunology and Disease

The Greek philosopher Galen talked about the mind-body connection way back in the 2nd century. In the early 20th century the Harvard physiology professor published a paper demonstrating the relationship of emotions to digestion. Hans Seyle coined the word “stress” while studying the physiological responses to, well, what everyone now calls stress.

Psychoneuroimmunology, Mind-Body Psychology and the Fight or Flight Response

As the mind-body connection is discussed more often in health care, it is a common error to believe the study of the mind-body connection is fairly new. Would you be surprised to know that this field of study began in the early 20th century? Actually, the mind-body connection was proposed by the Greek philosopher Galen in the 2nd century, but Walter Cannon, a professor of physiology at Harvard, initiated interest in the connection between the emotions and physiology in his work with animals and digestion.
