Our immune and lymphatic systems can be the source of great displeasure and distress for the body, but they’re at or near the top of the list in as far as being indispensable to our overall health. Long story short, you really wouldn’t want to do without them, even if you could. When it comes to their role in inflammation, it’s really just a negative instance of a process that is wholly beneficial for the body the vast majority of the time.

It has got to be one of the most common complaints, and one that’s heard from generation after generation as they ‘get on’ in life; the heart’s saying yes, but the body’s saying no. The reality is – whether we like it or not – oftentimes you need to have both those parts of the equation on board the yes train if you’re going to continue doing everything that you love to do as you get older.

It’s commonly understood that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And that’s not just based on popularity of opinion, as there’s easy-to-understand logic in coming to that conclusion. There is the longest duration of time between the previous day’s dinner and breakfast the next.

March 21st was the official first day of spring, but generally it takes a few weeks until you can see and feel enough of the changing season to say that spring has ‘sprung.’ The longer hours of daylight, warmer temperatures, and the emergence of flowers are the 3 most identifiable signs that spring has genuinely arrived, and most people will be absolutely thrilled with each of them. A few of us (myself included), however, aren’t entirely thrilled with flowers, freshly-cut grass, and – the worst transgressor of them all if you live in this neck of the woods – that infernal scotch broom!

Our collective understanding of human physiology continues to grow, and the grasp we humans have regarding the connection between that physiology and our bio-functionality grows along with it. It’s a slow process to be sure, but in the last 2 decades there’s been much learned about the way the health and function of our intestines aren’t exclusively related to digestion.

Most people will have heard of extreme sports. Many will have heard of the X-Games – which of course is the pinnacle competition spectacle for extreme sports athletes. But it’s likely that very few of those same folks will be aware that extreme endurance running is also a sport, or have ever heard of the likes of the Ragnar Relay Series or – the Mother of all extreme endurance races – the vaunted Barkley Marathon.

It’s fairly easy to determine that your adrenal glands are responsible for the production of adrenaline. Most of us will have heard of the ‘fight or flight’ response that’s triggered in the body by the production of adrenaline. This process was a whole lot more integral to our survival thousands of years ago. Conversely, in the modern world it’s an unfortunate fact that your adrenal glands are going into action far more often than they should be, and almost always in situations where there’s really no fighting or fleeing to be done.
