Regulating Dopamine & Neural Pathways

Everything you need to know about DOPAMINE Dopamine = Pleasure hormone! - Dopamine comes from the reward center of the brain and encourages us to seek pleasure (sex, drugs, gambling, food, shopping) - It is responsible for ‘Seeking behavior’ (wants desires, seeking information, and searching) - GOAL ORIENTED hormone There are 2 systems in the brain that govern behavior “Liking” and “Wanting” Liking = serotonin - Satiation, satisfied, full Wanting = Dopamine - Wanting more, searching Engaging in activities that instigate the liking system puts a pause on the seeking system, because if you’re full, you don’t need to seek anything! Natural interventions: - Celebrate small wins - Exercise - Music - Gratitude - Self-care - Finish a task - Healthy eating Supplemental recommendations: 5-HTP - Precursor to serotonin - Balances seeking behavior/ dopamine - Promotes feelings of satiety, happiness, calm - Reduces depression and anxiety - **** NEVER take if you are on an SSRI or other mood stabilizers.

Fight the Flu

Immune system Happy Flu season folks! The immune system is the body’s #1 defense against any pathogens bacteria or viruses. The immune system can be activated by encountering anything that the body does not recognize. It creates a code for the virus and stores the information so that it will be able to fight it off quicker if it comes in contact again with the pathogen in the future! The immune system should be strong and able to fight off most things it encounters. Here are 8 factors that can negatively impact the immune system that you’ll want to look out for during flue season; 1. Sleep - sleep produces cytokines to help fight off disease 2. Stress - stress hormones supress the immune system, which is especially harmful when stress is chronic. 3. Sunlight - Sunlight increases T-cells and helps to produce vitamin D which is imperative for the immune system. Not enough sunlight can negatively impact immune function. 4. Diet - Antioxidant can help to boost immune system - Sugar supresses immune system 5. Smoking - nicotine and harmful chemicals both play a role in immunosuppression. 6. Alcohol - Similar effect as sugar! Overdrinking can suppress the immune system and prevent the body from being able to repair itself. 7. Lack of exercise - Aerobic exercise improves blood flow, sending white blood cells around the entire body. Exercise also has a positive effect on mood and stress reduction. 8. Sex! - lack of sex can suppress the immune system. Intimacy can support the immune system by increases IgA. Oxytocin also has a positive effect on the immune system and the thymus gland in particular. Supplements: Immunity Vitamin C + Zinc - Anti Fungal - Anti Bacterial - Anti Viral - Anti Inflammatory - Anti oxidant - Zn prevents viruses from replicating Dose: 1 capsule 1x per day *With food https://caforia.com/shop/index.php?tid=PRODUCT_INFO&cPath=109_114&products_id=848&osCsid=5e4d01592398d9d7a3cc776609d4709d Quercetin 1200 - Anticarcinogen - Antibacterial -Antioxidant - Antihistamine Dose: 1 Capsule 2x per day * Anytime https://caforia.com/shop/index.php?osCsid=5e4d01592398d9d7a3cc776609d4709d&tid=PRODUCT_INFO&products_id=849

Constipation Diarrhea | What your poop says about you

What your Poop Says about you and how it plays a role in gut health. Jiordana Saade, CNP Holistic Nutritionist @themindfullclinic Nick Bissett Host, PT @nickbfitness Hippocrates says “ all disease begins in the gut”. As a Nutritionist this could not be more true. If our digestive system is compromised it affects every single organ in our body. The digestive systems job is to break down the food we eat and turn it into nutrients to feed our cells. Our very existence relies on the digestive process. What is a healthy poop? - At least 1 bowel movement per day, ideally 2-3 bowel movements - Colour - Consistency - Sink or float? - Undigested food particles - Full formed - S- shape - Feel complete #Constipation : - If you suffer from constipation follow the 3 day rule: after 3 days you should visit your doctor or take a laxative. - Fecal matter is highly toxic and can begin to reabsorb if it stays in digestive tract for too long. - Water and fibre are really important for regular bowel movements #Diarrhea - When transit time is too quick we do not absorb nutrients from our food and can be at risk for malnutrition and dehydration. - Fibre is an important factor here as it can help to slow down transit time. Supplements: Magnesium - Supports the adrenal glands for stress-related constipation or diarrhea - Really good for constipation as is relaxes the bowels - Required for peristalsis Dose: 1 scoop with warm water *Before bed 👉 https://caforia.com/shop/index.php?osCsid=ba8a6dbec72ef16d905debb40256e5e2&tid=PRODUCT_INFO&products_id=540 80 Billion Multi- probiotics - Healthy microflora - Takes up real estate in our digestive tract and protects us from other harmful bacteria’s - Breaks down our food - Extracts nutrients from food - Plays a role in the immune system - Regulates food cravings!

Early Morning Routine | Holistic Nutritionist Jiordana

My Morning Routine Jiordana Saade, CNP Holistic Nutritionist @themindfullclinic Nick Bissett Host @Nickbfitness Developing a morning routine is hands down one of the most important practices I have included in life. It has the ability to ensure you have a fantastic day and set you up for success. In this new era of technology, one of the first things that people do in the morning is check their phones.

FIRST - Drink two big glasses of water (to rehydrate) - Take morning supplements B- complex #VitaminC #Magnesium (energy production, stress resilience, mood balancing) SECOND - Get in some movement! - Increase blood flow to the brain - Improve mood, better cognitive functioning, higher productivity - Sweating is a light daily detox - Wakes up the body THIRD - Morning Tea - #CHAGA (antioxidant, anti-aging, cancer preventative, builds immune system, lowers cholesterol and blood pressure) FOURTH - #Gratitude journal - Gratitude can rewire negative neural pathways in the brain and allow you to be more optimistic - Improves mood, attracts good luck, prevents depression and anxiety.
