(Jonathan L. Zecher) With some communities in rebooted lockdown conditions and movement restricted everywhere else, no one is posting pictures of their sourdough.

(Paul Lenda) Life is a stream of experiences that help continuously shape who we are. There are certain essential truths that we acknowledge at certain points of our lives, yet usually tuck away into the depths of our subconscious minds. We are usually preoccupied with other things and don’t allow the power of those essential truths to guide us as we navigate through life. That’s why I felt it would be a good idea to reflect on some of the essential truths of life we often forget about.
(Lissa Rankin) As I’m trapped in my house because the air quality where I live in the Bay Area is incompatible with life, as I’m sheltered in place for six months and gave up all summer travel because I want to be a responsible community member and don’t want to hurt anyone who might be at risk of COVID, I am wrestling with how we live in a world where our president doesn’t believe in climate disasters and some doctors with public influence are denying the danger of COVID. I can only make sense of all this by viewing disaster denialism as a trauma response that deserves our compassion.

(Dr. Joseph Mercola) If you have breathing troubles, nitrates — a compound found in beets — may be able to help.

(Nikki Harper) Awe is an amazing feeling. It’s hard to put into words, but you certainly know it when it strikes. Awe is the emotion or sensation you feel when you suddenly sense that you are a part of something much, much larger than yourself. A sense of being connected to the world around you; a sense of wonder. For some, this has religious connotations, but non-religious people feel awe too – and it’s good for you.
(Nick Polizzi) We are living through tumultuous times. Between the global pandemic and the worldwide outcry for social change, it is easy to become overwhelmed. I know I do.
(Aletheia Luna) As poet Walt Whitman once wrote: “I am large, I contain multitudes.”

(Steve Taylor, Ph.D.) Some people have a simplistic belief that depression is caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain. It is usually ascribed to a low level of a neurotransmitter called serotonin, and depressed people are routinely prescribed medication which increases the level of serotonin in their brain. However, as I pointed out in a previous post, it is highly problematic to view depression in these terms.

(Dr. Edward F. Group) Candida is a type of fungus (or, more specifically – yeast) that can cause fungal infections like candidiasis, candidemia, and oral thrush. Dozens of species of candida are known to affect humans and Candida albicans is the most common.[2, 3] When the immune system functions normally, Candida is kept in check and exists harmlessly in the skin or mucous membranes like those of the gut and vaginal area. It’s even among the organisms that newborns acquire during natural birth, nursing, or from food. However, a compromised immune system, and other factors such as poor diet, can lead to an imbalance where Candida overwhelms the body, a condition known as Candida overgrowth.
(Sayer Ji) The future of cardiovascular disease prevention and treatment will not be found in your medicine cabinet, rather in your kitchen cupboard or in your back yard growing on a tree.
