Did you know that our bodies have many, many hormones that carry out processes that range from digestion to sleep?

While I was at NTA, our founder – Gray Graham – gave a great analogy. The endocrine system is like an orchestra. All the instruments must play in harmony or they start to throw each other off.

I’m not very musical – okay, I’m about as musical as a water buffalo -, but I get that you can’t follow the music if the tuba next to you is playing at a different tempo or in the wrong key. 

To continue the metaphor, the conductor of this symphony is a part of the brain called the hypothalamus, and the pituitary gland is the first violinist.

Together, they command the entire orchestra to play a particular song, while simultaneously receiving feedback from the instruments to set the right pitch and tone. If the gland is the instrument and the hormone is the sound it produces, just one gland being out of tune will cause disharmony in the entire orchestra. (source)

Learn what this holistic practitioner is reading about

This week, I found myself drawn to practical articles that help me do something. Whether it’s eradicate the fungus that causes dandruff & cradle cap, sneak more organ meat into our diets (mine included), or ways to relieve health-stealing stress, it caught my attention.

Here’s what I’m reading around the web —

Reversing Diabetes World Summit

Can you imagine what it would feel like to help yourself, mom, dad, husband (or wife) reverse Type 2 diabetes? I can tell you firsthand that it feels pretty amazing.

I helped my husband reverse his diagnosis before I knew anything about holistic medicine. His blood test results show that he is no longer hyperglycemic; not diabetic, not even pre-diabetic.

Knowing that the father of my children no longer has an elevated chance of heart disease, eye problems, and liver damage is truly priceless.

Reversing Type 2 Diabetes

Preventing, controlling, and reversing Type 2 Diabetes can be done. No advanced degree needed.

…though it helps to learn from those who have them. The good ones really know their stuff.

The Reversing Diabetes World Summit starts today and will give you everything you need to know to reverse Type 2 Diabetes.

I don’t promote many free summits, but this is one is worth your time.

This week has been……yeah.

Katie caught a cold, and it kind of zapped most of our plans. Lots of nose blowing and nary a babysitter in sight.

Not good for a working mama.

So, this week I made brownies and had a glass of wine at 2 pm. In my yoga pants. Trying to ignore my unfolded laundry and dirty dishes.

The results of that little experiment is that wine still turns me into a puffer fish, and these brownies are my new best friend. Hubby didn’t even notice the dirty dishes.

Score.
