Interesting study on how meditation can improve your health!

“Psychological stress typically triggers a fight-or-flight response, prompting corticotropin-releasing hormone and catecholamine production in various parts of the body, which ultimately disturbs the microbiota. In the absence of stress, a healthy microbiota produces short-chain fatty acids that exert anti-inflammatory and antitumor effects. During stress, an altered gut microbial population affects the regulation of neurotransmitters mediated by the microbiome and gut barrier function. Meditation helps regulate the stress response, thereby suppressing chronic inflammation states and maintaining a healthy gut-barrier function. Conclusions • The current research team recommends the integration of meditation into conventional health care and wellness models. Concurrently, studies to explore the effects of meditation on human microbiota are warranted.”


It is unique analysis to see what is going on “under the hood” and then we can determine your “areas of opportunity” with nutrition and health building lifestyle habits. Ideally, we run the full investigation (my Health (RE) Building Packages) with you to see the WHOLE pictures with other labs to help identify more clues of hidden internal sources of chronic stress but at least you can get a head start into learning more about your gut terrain and status of microbiome with BiomeFX lab test. I can email you a sample lab report if you are curious.

The lab test results will provide us with clues towards your areas of opportunities to optimize your health from the inside out. Read more about the test and analysis on my blog here

As you know, I have been focusing continuing education over the past ten years to become certified as a Functional Nutritional Therapist, Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner, CHEK Holistic Lifestyle Coach, Ben Greenfield’s Kion (plus Superhuman Coach) health coach and more trainings.

Since high school, I was always interested and curious about nutrition, health and exercise as we need it all – as what I term “The WHOLESTIC Method” to be fit and healthy from the inside out. One of my favorite quotes is “you can’t out exercise a bad diet” and “you can’t out supplement poor lifestyle habits”. More than ever, we should be striving to feel our best each day by running well chosen functional lab tests (test and assess instead of guessing!), investigating the external and internal sources of chronic stressors (inflammation) and then creating an individualized “D.R.E.S.S. for Health Success” protocol.
