Potassium salts aid bone health, limit osteoporosis risk, new research finds — ScienceDaily

The potassium salts (bicarbonate and citrate) plentiful in fruit and vegetables, play an important part in improving bone health, researchers have found. For the first time, the results also showed that these potassium salts reduce bone resorption, the process by which bone is broken down, therefore increasing their strength.

How Your MP3 Player can be your Best Meditation Tool Ever | MyScienceAcademy

After making sure you will be undisturbed for the next 30 minutes or so, you settle in your favourite meditation posture – on your mat or cushion – close your eyes and…..nothing!

Your mind keeps buzzing noise for almost all the length of the session. Jittery thought fragments, ‘mind popup notifications’ of things left undone and other God-knows-what mental clutter streaming up the corridors of your conscious mind. But hey, that’s normal. It happens to me, you and people who have been meditating for the past few decades.

I do have those days when no matter how good my intent to meditate is, I just feel there is more mental noise to wade through than normal. That’s where I discovered and started using meditation music or more technically, Binaural beats or brain wave entrainment.

Sound Waves & Brain Waves:

Through various studies about the brain, it had been discovered that different mental states or levels of activity produce different frequencies or waves.

Sensory Integration Dysfunction

Our mind and body are superbly interwoven to meet the demands of today’s world. The feelings, thoughts and actions we experience occur through the complex actions of our brain. How we process environmental and internal information has a major impact on our feelings, thoughts and actions. The slightest change in our brain processes can influence how we manage daily living skills, academic progress and social interaction. Sensory integration dysfunction is one example of what can go wrong in the processes of the brain. This paper will explain sensory integration dysfunction to the point of understanding the nature of this unseen (and often misdiagnosed) disability, as well as its psychological, emotional, learning and social effects on the individual.

Sensory Integration Dysfunction (SID) is a neurological disorder pioneered 40 years ago by A. Jean Ayres, Ph.D., OTR. Dr. Ayres developed the sensory integration theory to explain the relationship between behavior and brain functioning. As described in Williams & Shellenberger’s work entitled, How Does Your Engine Run? A Leader’s Guide to The Alert Program for Self-Regulation, “Countless bits of sensory information enter our brain at every moment, not only from our eyes and ears, but also from every place in our bodies” (1-2). The brain must organize and integrate all of these sensations if a person is to move and learn normally.

What Causes the Rise of ADHD in Children?

One in 10 American children now has attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)—a 22 percent increase from 2003. Boys are twice more likely to be diagnosed with ADHD than girls

ADHD involves a cluster of symptoms that include inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsive behaviors. Often, children with ADHD struggle in school and have difficulty managing interpersonal relationships

The cause of ADHD remains elusive, although there are many contending culprits, including poor nutrition and environmental toxins ranging from food and vaccine additives to agricultural chemicals

Five dietary factors that tend to have a detrimental effect on ADHD and behavior in general are reviewed. Optimizing your child’s gut flora is also crucial. A key step is to avoid processed foods

Glyphosate-contaminated food has recently been implicated in the dramatic rise of ADHD and autism. Both problems tend to involve abnormal gut flora, and this is where glyphosate begins its path of destruction

Sensory Side Effects – A Sensory Life!

The Side Effects of Sensory Processing Difficulties

Written By: Angie Voss, OTR

The Most Common Side Effect: ANXIETY

Three reasons why anxiety is almost always a factor, especially for those who over-register and demonstrate sensory sensitivities and sensory defensiveness:

The brain switches to the sympathetic nervous system at a greater frequency than a neurotypical brain for NO EXPLAINED reason, so therefore the brain will naturally feel “anxious” when it switches to fight or flight all of the time. And the cumulative result of this releases more and more of the stress hormones throughout the body.

Wouldn’t you be anxious if at any given moment you had no idea how something was going to feel? Wondering if a sound, or touch, or movement, etc was going to be accepted and pleasant…or hurt or cause nausea or make your heart race and hands sweat? What a scary feeling to have something be fun and pleasant one minute (for example swinging at the park) and the next moment for it to cause extreme nausea and a fever. This is where sensory modulation comes in to play.

When a child is over-responding (sensory defensive) all of the time to one or more types of sensory input, anxiety is sure to be present…think of touch…when light touch feels like you are being given a shot, wouldn’t you be anxious to be around a bunch of people accidentally brushing against you? What about circle time, or standing in line, or a trip to the park…and then add in possible auditory sensitivity or olfactory sensitivity. Anxiety is a side effect, and a big one at that.
