Most people would say that pain can be ignored or overruled, especially if it’s necessary to persevere and complete whatever it is you need to do. Like the professional athlete who has one cortisone injection after another in his sprained ankle just so he can get out there and not let the team down. If you’ve ever had a high ankle sprain you’ll know that cortisone shots only numb the pain, and moderately at that. It still hurts like heck, but you’re able to wince and grimace through it and get on with what’s expected of you.

Very few organisms that still roam the earth can claim to have their biological dateline stretching back to prehistoric times. Sharks are one of them. While their evolutionary hardiness likely comes from a whole host of different factors, there is one particular part of certain sharks’ biochemical makeup that seems to go a long way in ensuring their longevity. This substance has since been shown to have extensive disease-prevention capacities, along with being able to reduce the incidence and severity of lesser ailments as well.

Anyone who trains for peak performance in a sport or athletic pursuit of any sort will know that recovery is just important as the physical training itself and eating a diet that works for reaching your goals.

However, there’s another ‘R’ in the equation - relaxation.

You may or not be a believer in the green superfoods mania that’s taken hold across North America, but there’s no debating this fact; humans have evolved to be omnivores, and our lack of incisor teeth (among other indicators) is evolutionary proof that we are more designed to be herbivores and frugivores than carnivores within the omnivorous spectrum.

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.

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.
