"During your average day in the human brain, neurons are constantly firing and neurotransmitters are traveling well-trodden paths through the brain, somewhat like cars on a freeway.
"Previous research has shown that new networks appear in tandem. It's as if those cars on the freeway were given free rein to stray from the highway and take back roads towards new destinations.
"The models showed that the brain is able to tap into new networks by coupling the effects of neuron activity and the release of neurotransmitters, like serotonin."
Have you tried microdosing? What's your experience? Any effect on depression? 🍄👇
This. This sums it all up.
The results of the study showed that higher levels of maternal stress during pregnancy (such as a divorce or moving to a new house) were associated with increased attention deficit/hyperactivity problems in children over 2 years later. These findings suggest that stressful events experienced during prenatal development may be associated with problematic child behavioral functioning years later – although additional research is needed.
Wow... The importance of this can't be overstated.
Acupuncture alleviates cancer pain and reduces opioid use. Researchers conducted a meta-analysis of 14 randomized controlled trials and conclude that acupuncture reduces pain levels for patients with cancer.  In addition, the research indicates that opioid use may decrease significantly as a result of acupuncture analgesic treatments. The research was published in JAMA Oncology
“We’re in an interesting time when it comes to UI, things are converging more and more,” says Friedman. “I like to think that back in the Metro design days we started with this idea of simplification... and that’s gotten friendlier over time, which we’ve embraced with round people, rounded corners, and subtle drop shadows, and dark mode. I think generally speaking when we look at Android, iOS, the web, Windows, and Mac, there is a common DNA from a visual design perspective we’re starting to feel.”
One of the best articles I've seen on subtle psychological abuse tactics.
I've been battling with fatigue after eating for some time now - and simply haven't made myself a priority to look it up until recently (what else is new, lol)
While nearly all of the mainstream articles I find are more or less useless (meaning, telling us what we already know, and basically saying "its normal, deal with it) this is definitely one of the better ones. (That said, to a degree I'm sure it *is* normal - many cultures take "siestas" for a reason!)
I'm currently deeply looking into Chinese Medicine patterns and finding a lot more to work with, and a huge number of herbal formulas. I've recently started on a new one, and will report back as this is super annoying to someone with a lot on the go!
Besides ensuring the basics (hydration, proper sleep, smaller portions, better chewing, digestion aides such as fennel seeds, walking etc) do you have any tips or tricks if you experience this?
“Today one is hard-pressed to find anyone knowledgeable who believes that the so-called biological revolution of the 1980s made good on most or even any of its therapeutic and scientific promises.” Bio-psychiatry “overreached, overpromised, overdiagnosed, overmedicated and compromised its principles.”

Do something right now that shocks your emotional system. You’ll quickly realize it wasn’t so bad.
“It’s actually far more exhausting to not work than it is to work. It takes far more energy to sit with internal conflict than it does to get to work.”
Changing your negative behaviors might seem like more work, but in the long run, it actually saves you energy, time, and money than if you never changed.
Kabat-Zinn’s pioneering work could one day see him mentioned in the same breath as Darwin and Einstein. “What they did for biology and physics, Jon has done for a new frontier: the science of the human mind and heart,”
