Hypothalamus Bitch

What the f*&.# is going on whit my Hypothalamus? As strange as it may seem to you this was the first question that popped in my mind the day I start sweating in bursts. “Provably a lot” that was my quick answer.

If I a go back in time to 2006 when I had my brain broken due to stress, one of the side effects from the break down was my breasts started lactating, no like I had a baby but still lactating in a weird way…like lactating per se wasn’t weird enough, my “baby” was 11 years old at that time I was supposed to be as dry as it gets.

One of the hormones that the hypothalamus manages is prolactin. This is the hormone women need to make milk to breastfeed their babies. When you are not at that point and you start lactating the red flags are straight up but guess what? I did go to the doctor which told me “it’s probably nothing, maybe stress”. Well… Sir, yes I did have stress but I had not time to go further in the...

Sleep better tonight, 3 Must Do things that will knock you out, in a good way

Hello friends,

I work with many clients whose first issue they seek help with is sleeping better.  We have conditioned ourselves with habits that are actually getting in the way of our brain's natural needs, to steadily prepare for a good night's rest.

 Nights are designed to sleep. With all the technology interaction at night, our brain gets confused. While we are in front of a tv or laptop or phone our brain understands in daylight because the brain doesn’t know any better and stays wired keeping us awake until we turn screens off. Then the brain needs some time to realize that means sleep time by releasing melatonin to put our brain to sleep. Then the brain starts the cell restoration process and resting time. When we spend time in front of a tv, it is time we are shaving from restoring and resting causing all kinds of health issues or sleep deprivation. Under these circumstances our brain can function 100% the next day. Use these easy peasy technics to train...

Cuesta College Nourishes Brains, too!

Hello Everyone~

 

One of the things that kept coming back to my mind when I had my brain health breakdown in 2006 was a question, of course, “Why doesn’t everyone know that you can put your brain back together with food, superfoods, and simple routines and structure?” When we as a society rely on food and natural remedies for a quick fix only, no wonder we fail.

With all my education and degrees, I never thought I would be teaching, and for the last 4 years, it has basically been what I do with my clients,  on different levels. From the Group Series to 1:1 and lately creating the new certification program Dynamic Nutrition Specialist, my mission in life is guiding my clients and students to discover this other world of health without depending on quick fixes. Our body is not Amazon Prime, results are not instant. It takes time to heal when you allow.

Teaching community college at Cuesta College made so much sense to me, the more people who hear the...

Get Brain Superpowers Without Medication

Nowadays it becomes challenging to have a good amount of hours of sleep for a whole a lot of reasons such as we have TV to watch before bed and we get hooked up in our favorite show, we get in our phone or laptop for hours before bed time working or chatting in media platforms or playing with whatever game is on fashion.

All those things keep us awake during hours that we should be sleeping. Why is so hard to go the bed when you don’t feel sleepy at all? The reason is because your brain doesn’t understand that is time to go the bed because your eyes are facing an screen with powerful lights that tell your brain that is daylight.

Our brain is designed to feel sleepy when is dark and rise when is daylight. There is a very specific hormone that our brain releases when is dark and time to go the bed and wakes us up when is daylight, that hormone is called melatonin.

Melatonin is what tells us, it’s bed time! or Get up, get up!

For our brain to release the right...
