Understanding Neuroplasticity for Brain Health
"Neuroplasticity is the ability of the brain to reorganize and adapt from the result of experience." I took this quote directly off my Instagram that I posted a few months ago when I decided to give up alcohol three months after the Christmas holidays to rewire my mind.
Understanding Protein and Its Importance
The word "Protein" comes from the Greek work "Protos" which means "Of prime importance". Protein is the main building block of the human body, if you were to compare your body to a building, protein would be the raw material. Like fats, and carbohydrates, proteins are composed of oxygen, hydrogen, and carbon. The actual difference between protein and the other two macro-nutrients is the presence of nitrogen. Scientists use nitrogen tests to compare the utilization of proteins in the body by comparing the amount of nitrogen consumed to the amount excreted through urine, feces, and sweat.
Haven’t the human race learned anything from the 1918 Spanish influenza pandemic
From 1918 to 1919, the world was devastated by an outbreak of the influenza virus. What started as a minor outbreak in Kansas, USA, spread to all corners of the world infecting approximately 500 million and killing 50 million. The spread was attributed to the vast movement of men during World War I. The infected men going to war quickly spread the disease to others fighting the war and those caring for them and their families.
A peek into some genetic diseases through the eyes of NLP
Genetic Diseases: Genetic diseases are those passed on through generations through genes, or hereditary biological material.
How storytelling affects the brain?
Our brains process electrical energy, and when we hear a story, our brain lights up. Language not only processes parts of our brain but also activates other areas of the brain that we use to hear historical events. When we hear the news, our brain glows like a neuron on the phone, making us recall more details than we had before.

The Best Probiotic You'll Never, Ever Eat
Many of us have seen commercials for probiotics: pills containing live bacteria that are said to somehow magically improve our digestive system and make us healthier.

What is a Microbiome?
A decade ago, I’d never heard of a microbiome. Today, I hear about them constantly. Okay, yes, I hear a lot about microbiomes because it’s part of my job title. I’m a microbiome scientist, and I work on building computer programs to study this environment, how it interacts with our bodies, and its effects on health — or disease. But even outside my job, I see microbiomes, and the probiotics that are supposed to affect them, mentioned everywhere.
FDA Should Rescind EUA Approvals for All COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test Methods

Alternative Head Injury Protocol, Genetic Testing and Brain Scans
1. Abstract Treatment of head injuries, traumatic brain injury (TBI), and chronic traumatic encephalopathy continues to be an emerging and expanding area of research and development to expound and improve upon interventions. Though new emphasis on developing a personalized restorative approach in TBI novel territory, requires a deeper understanding of how nutrition, physical, mental exercise(s), and genetics impact long-term outcome. Recognized genetic factors play a role in determining risk and impact of brain trauma, recovery, presentation, and restorative post-injury properties and outcomes.
