Food Is Mood

How to Change Your Mood and Skip the Food!

Marlenea La Shomb, ND, LMT
March – April 2021 • Vol 3, No 114

“What?” you say, “How can food be mood? That’s rude!” Well, ask yourself this question: “Do I crave different foods depending on my mood?” Most of us would answer, “Oh, yeah.” So how does that work? Let me remind you that we are sunlight-activated, chemical/hormonal, and electrical beings!

The chemistry of food interacts with our body’s chemistry, its thoughts and feelings. Emotions activate different hormones. When you eat a banana, you don’t become the banana—the banana becomes you. This is the job of the liver. Keep in mind that food is much more than nutrients, fiber and protein—all the things we normally hear about. It provides life- and light-giving energy. I like the feeling of being light on my feet. I choose to eat a heavy meal when I’m ready to roll over and have a siesta! My grandson used to call it a food coma.

What Is “Functional Medicine”?

A Larger Toolbox!

Dr. Peter Kozlowski
March – April 2021 • Vol 3, No 114

Functional Medicine is an approach to preventative health and chronic disease that is individualized to your story and your body. As a traditional Family Practice doctor, I was taught to listen to your symptoms and figure out which medication would help alleviate those symptoms. As a Functional Medicine doctor, I was taught to listen to your story and help you uncover what could have led to those symptoms and what is contributing to those symptoms lingering or worsening.

If you choose Functional Medicine, then the focus will not be on treating your symptoms, but on what could be imbalanced in your body and what can bring it into balance (and in this, the symptoms may be relieved in a more lasting way). What do you have too much of? Bad food, gut inflammation, estrogen, toxins, stress, etc. What do you not have enough of? Thyroid hormone, vitamin D, self-care, progesterone, exercise, etc. Hippocrates, a few thousand years ago, said, “All disease begins in the gut.” He was onto something because this is where we frequently start.

C60—Powerful Anti-Aging Molecule

A Brief History

Denis Ouellette
January – February 2021 • Vol 3, No 113

Carbon 60 (C60) is the most powerful antioxidant known to exist on the planet. Anti-oxidants enhance and moderate immune function. Antioxidants represent a therapeutic option to fight viruses and to combat aging.

Free radicals are useful at a low level; however, they become elevated to unhealthy levels by pollutants (air, water, food), air travel (cosmic radiation), intense exercise, increased exposure to sun, and other sources. Free radicals are involved in as many as 100 human-degenerative conditions and diseases, including influenza, chronic inflammation (pain), and cancer.

FullerLifeC60 is the easiest and most effective way to boost your antioxidants and to neutralize free radicals, with the world’s first under-the-tongue, patent-pending strips.

Eat Your Microgreens!

The Gourmet Herbalist

Marlenea La Shomb, ND, LMT
March-April 2020 • Vol 3, No 109

Looking out at the snow-covered garden and frozen ground, as winter lingers on, I count on my greens to provide me with chlorophyll, known as “liquid sunlight.” I recently had the wonderful opportunity to meet Sam Mascari, owner of Montana Roots in Livingston, and to tour his magical greenhouses. Right before my eyes, I saw what I had previously only read about—an aqua-ponic, recirculating, greenhouse ecosystem! It starts with the tank of fish that provides fertilizer, which is then pumped into a biological filter bed that is rich with worms and beneficial bacteria.

Montana Roots is a year-round, sustainable farm that grows a variety of microgreens, shoots, leafy greens, herbs, and edible flowers. Sam explained to me the difference between sprouts and microgreens. Sprouts, grown in a jar, are more the germinated seeds and the roots; whereas, microgreens are eaten after the first leaves (called cotyledons) emerge from a plant. It grows in soil that is a significant part of the embryo within the seed of a plant. Upon germination, the cotyledon becomes the embryonic first leaves of a seedling, before adult leafing occurs.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy—

for Sports Injuries & Concussions

CJ Puotinen for Carol Wilcock
September-October 2019 • Vol 3, No 106

When it comes to sports, injuries happen. Athletes of every age and skill level suffer sprains, bruises, abrasions, muscle aches, and broken bones, and in contact sports, concussions and closed-head injuries are common.

One treatment used by professional sports teams and athletes was developed in the 1940s to treat decompression sickness, the illness that results when deep sea divers return to the surface too quickly. The treatment is hyperbaric oxygen therapy, or HBOT, and it involves lying in a pressurized chamber filled with air and supplemental oxygen.

During HBOT, air pressure is slowly increased until it’s two to three times that of sea level. As patients breathe normally, their lungs absorb increased amounts of oxygen, several times as much as they do breathing air at sea level. As a result, according to HBOT advocates, super-oxygenated blood is carried throughout the body, promoting the release of growth hormones and helping the body heal.

Restoring Men’s Health, Vigor & Vitality

New Book: The 4 Pillars of Men’s Health

Marlenea La Shomb, N.D., LMT
May-June 2019 • Vol 3, No 104

In my line of work, JumpStart Your Health, men’s health is key. So when I heard Dave Skattum’s speech on his new book, The 4 Pillars of Men’s Health, at Livingston’s Toastmasters club, I knew it was a must read. Our men are in trouble. And when they seek out help or improvement, many times, they are offered how-to programs to build muscle and increase sexual stamina. Nearly half of all men don’t even meet basic federal activity guidelines, with a 35% obesity and hypertension rates.

Many times, life deals with men in cruel, crippling ways. They sink into despair and begin a downward spiral of negative thinking. Enter the four pillars of men’s health, four keys to maximize your inner and outer strength, a practical, well researched guide filled with personal experiences that are far removed from theory and full of encouraging ways to become a healthy man. The 4 pillars are: Nutrition, Exercise, Accurate Thinking, and Spirituality. They were discovered by Dave to give whole health to a person, landing him in the top of his field in public speaking, triathlons and business, and doing it in six years.

Step Back to Reach Down

More Integrated Functional Movement

Terry Kennedy, MPT
May-June 2019 • Vol 3, No 104

In the January-February 2019 issue, I wrote an article, Integrated Functional Movement, with descriptions for three exercises to strengthen patterns of movement with optimal body mechanics (or biomechanics) that could be applied to everyday activities. Cultural norms and practices tend to lead us away from good body mechanics and into muscle imbalances, where some muscles are overworked and others under utilized. This changes the length and tension of the muscles and fascia, and causes abnormal stresses on joints.

It can be difficult and tedious to acquire optimal body mechanics during everyday tasks as we move about on autopilot. The key is to practice optimal mechanics, slowly at first, and lay down an improved pattern into the neurological system.

Turbo-Charge Your Exercise

Michael Grant White
May-June 2019 • Vol 3, No 104

There are surprising things you can do to enhance physical and mental performance if you know how to use oxygen the right way. Then, all you need is 15 minutes day. Our system, using insights of top-secret military training, plus Oxygen Multistep Therapy, delivers profound conditioning or self-healing results without the use of drugs, chemicals, surgery or invasive techniques.

Tiger Woods, LeBron James, Michael Phelps, Mario Lemieux, Olympic athletes, multiple players in the NBA, NFL, and professional baseball all use some type of oxygen. Even weekend warriors find it extremely effective. We have seen it improve almost every symptom known to mankind, including Parkinson’s, ALS, and Lyme disease.
