Ready to be happier and sleep better too???

Add 5 organic brazil nuts to your daily dietary routine! Not only do they taste delicious, but they are nutrient dense, rich in essential proteins and fiber, with an impressive vitamin and mineral package, PLUS they provide 70% of the recommended daily allowance of selenium! SEVENTY PERCENT!! The highest of all foods!

So who cares about selenium??? Your brain and your pineal gland!

Two of the health concerns that we frequently see in our office are depression and sleep-deprivation. Many times these issues are looked at separately, but physiologically speaking they are connected. Research has shown that when people are depressed, they have trouble falling asleep, and then have trouble staying asleep. They wake in the morning feeling just as fatigued as when they went to bed with an added dose of frustration. Their melatonin levels test low on the Zyto Bio-communication device, and they talk about napping a lot. And for those people that aren’t sleeping well, they become even more depressed. It’s a miserable negative cycle.

But good news!! Selenium is a master mood-booster! It converts to serotonin - the “happy hormone”, which then converts to melatonin allowing the pineal gland to do it’s job effectively by delivering a restful night’s sleep! This breaks the sleep/sadness negative cycle!!!

There are other factors to take into consideration, like over-all diet, exercise, prescription medication, stress level, and chemical toxicity within your household, but by changing these 5 elements of your routine, you have the opportunity to drastically improve those aspects of your health and well-being.

1. Eat 5 organic brazil nuts per day

2. Eliminate toxic products - in, on, and around you - that cause imbalance to every gland in your body, including pineal gland.

3. Make sure your brain and nervous system are functioning optimally by getting checked by an upper cervical chiropractor

4. Increase B6 levels with 1 tablespoon of organic blackstrap molasses

5. Bundle up, and stand outside looking at the moon and stars for 5 full minutes before bedtime.
