Resetting Your Circadian Rhythm with Fasting

Image by Monoar Rahman Rony from Pixabay  When an electronic device stops working, what’s the first thing that most of us think to do? Reboot. Hit the reset button.

The Redox (Oxidation / Reduction) Pathways

Supplements to Assist with Sauna Detoxification

I wrote here on the health benefits of sauna in general, and here on infrared vs dry heat saunas. Quick recap on at least the detoxification portion, though: toxins, especially solvents, tend to persist in fat cells for years unless eliminated—and elimination occurs via sweating and weight loss.

Infrared vs Regular Saunas

I wrote here on the health benefits of sauna generally. But infrared saunas are touted to have the highest health benefits compared to other types of sauna. What is the difference between them?

How the Liver Detoxifies

Biotoxins and Hair Loss

From Dr. Lauren Deville - Naturopathic Doctor

Far and away the most common causes of hair loss are hypothyroidism, low ferritin, and high androgen levels (such as testosterone, androstenedione, and DHEA).  Less common but still prevalent are the apparently autoimmune condition alopecia areata, and the stress-induced telogen effluvium.
