'It is not enough to follow the heart. You must train the heart.' Says buddhist monk Ajahn Sumedho.
Training the heart and mind is a central strategy of yoga. Qualities like compassion, straightforwardedness,loving kindness and equanimity. I find it especially hard to practice these when things go 'wrong' or not according my expectations. And its not about staying 'all positive or simply looking towards the bright side', but rather strategically defining the opposite feeling of each negative emotion and then actively giving juice to it, focusing on it and the obstacle will naturally fade.
So where there is anger we can train the heart towars loving kindness, where there is disappointment we can train the heart toward understanding. Sounds like bullshit? Recent neuroscience confirms that repeated experience of states of loving kindness or compassion actually modify the physical structures of our brain, through repeated stimulation. Studies have shown that those who have developed circuity for the positive emotions return much quicker to a calm baseline after being provoked bye a negative emotion. What we Practice gets stronger. It's as simple as that - same with our brains. What negative emotion can you transform in its exact opposite today? I tried it myself. Is it hard? Fucking hard. We are so wired to our 'right' that things go as we planned and if they dont to our 'right' of being frustrated.
Is it worth it? Hell yes. Train your brain and then turn your face towards the sun. Life's more wonderful there, i promise ♡

In NKT we work with a principle called local/global or tonic/phasic. It's usually a smaller stabilizer that's overworking for a larger mover. Case in point is the pec minor and pec major. The pec minor is a local stabilizer and the pec major is a global mover. If the pec major becomes neurologically under active the pec minor may compensate. When a smaller muscle does that the strain of doing 2 jobs becomes too much, and injury and or pain usually follow. That dysfunctional pattern must be reversed and replaced with a healthy one. That's what we do in NKT, unravel the faulty pattern and offer a new functional one. In this way the brain can reprogram itself, and with homework the repetitions of the new pattern become part of long term memory. #nkt #neurokinetictherapy #pecs #neuroscience
Mein 516tes Buch 😅
Merkt man nicht, dass ich ab und an lese 🤔
Großartiges Buch zu den Grundlagen unserer Bewegungsintelligenz.
und ich freu mich auf unser zweites Treffen im Mai 🙏🏼
A little much for Monday morning? Maybe. I know its hard to grapple with the fact that so much about the environment we have created for ourselves is hurting something as fundamental as how our brain functions. .
But unfortunately this is what preliminary research is showing. Pollution, chiefly from car exhaust in these studies, is a likely contributor to the rising prevalence of these conditions. .
Rats exposed to fossil fuel pollution showed elevated levels of glutamate in the brain, an excitotoxic neurotransmitter linked to ASD, ADHD, anxiety, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and more. .
From a common sense point of view, of course car pollution is going to affect our metabolism and our brain function. How could it not? Living by a major roadway is a risk factor that we must consider when designing cities. Unfortunately a lot of developments are designed to make money, not enhance (or even protect) the health of the family living there 😢 .
Heavy metal, methylation and glutathione work is becoming much more common now in natural medical care to combat this root cause of illness. Beware however that MANY heavy metal tests are inaccurate or a poor representation of heavy metal exposure / accumulation and should not be purchased without a thorough understanding of their validity and use. Chelation therapies can be dangerous if used inappropriately, so again, don't seek out FAD based natural medical care. For many patients I see, heavy metals are one of the last things we address because we must ensure the gastrointestinal, cellular and hormonal systems are healing first. For many patients, once we clean up their diet and environment, heavy metal work is not necessary as the body takes over and does it's thing. Headlines or posts like this should not necessarily drive you into a doctor's office out of fear of metal exposure for the latest treatment, but rather allow us to appreciate these environmental root causes and ask for better from our cities and policy makers while protecting ourselves and our families.

Happy Earth Day.
This day has been celebrated since 1970 and today has become a global movement raising awareness and working on environmental protection.
CSR: Corporate Social Responsibility has for too long been a tick-box-lip-service exercise for many organisations.
The more financially successful an organisation is, the more money you have to plough back into environmental and ethical projects.
Businesses contribute to just as much water, land and air pollution and waste (food, furniture, sewage, technological, paper etc.) Invest in the planet not because its gives your organisation more assets to own, market share in a new sector, greater market share in a current sector, or because it apleals to your audience.
Do it simply, because you too owe it to the earth and because if you don't, you won't have a planet to operate on despite all the Branson and Musk space projects.

In addition to our bedtime routine, factors in our sleeping environment itself can radically affect the quality of our sleep. Blocking light in our sleep environment, minimizing disturbing sounds, having a white noise generator, and high quality bed and bedding not only affects the quality of one-third of your life, but more importantly, that period of time plays an enormous factor in the health and quality of
the remaining two-thirds. Sleeping environment hacks are unique in how much of your life they affect without requiring any ongoing activity beyond setting up the correct conditions. 💡Learn more in our Foundational Guide to Neurohacking.

ELECTROPHYSIOLOGY || What exactly is electrophysiology (sometimes shortened to ephys)? Ephys is a technique we use in the lab to measure electrical signals that cells use to communicate. Cells like neurons (brain cells) or cardiomyocytes (heart cells) have electrical properties, so that they can send electrical signals - this is how neurons communicate and process information and how the heart is able to contract. This electrical signal is carried by ions, or charged particles like potassium, sodium, calcium, and chloride. When we do ephys, we’re measuring either the flow of these ions into or out of the cell (this is what I do every week) or we can measure the change in the voltage of the membrane (this happens because those little charged ions are moving into or out of the cell). This helps us understand how certain types of cells contribute to things like information processing and also how they’re connected to one another to fulfill a specific function.

This is an incredible photo of a fresh brain removed during an autopsy, showing its Gray matter and White matter.
•Gray matter & White matter of the brain:
Gray matter makes up the outer cortex of the brain and surrounds the white matter.
Looking at nervous tissue, there are regions that predominantly contain cell bodies and regions that are largely composed of just axons. These two regions within nervous system structures are often referred to as gray matter (the regions with many cell bodies and dendrites) or white matter (the regions with many axons). Gray matter is not necessarily gray. It can be pinkish because of blood content, or even slightly tan, depending on how long the tissue has been preserved. But white matter is white because axons are insulated by a lipid-rich substance called myelin.
Lipids can appear as white ("fatty") material, much like the fat on a raw piece of chicken or beef. Actually, gray matter may have that color ascribed to it because next to the white matter, it is just darker—hence, gray. .

Corporate Training : Anti Stress Science @ PwC
One of our favorite moments in the Human Energy Management experience, is when we are able to bring the science we talk about in the workshop live in action for people to actually experience it.
Our mission is to make science fun and practical to induce a long term sense of wonder and awe in the participants through a unique and innovative style of education. One of our most favorite experiments is to show the impact of how shifting our mindset through mindful awareness has on our biological state and well-being. “As a mindfulness trainer, I continuously work alongside my brother on innovating approaches to integrate the science into practical experiments in hopes that we can help enhance the experience for the participants by providing sustainable education, and equip them with the knowledge and skills that will help them in adopting a healthier state of awareness and outlook on life” ~Fares Akasheh.

HTT codes for the Huntingtin protein, which plays an important role in nerve cells of the brain, essential for normal brain development. Huntingtin is found in many tissue, however its highest expression is in the brain.
The HTT gene has a DNA segment made up of cytosine- adenine -guanine repeats (CAG) repeats. It is known as the CAG trinucleotide repeat and is normally made up of 35 CAG repeats.
A mutation in the HTT gene known as CAG trinucleotide repeat expansion causes Huntington’s disease. Here, CAG is repeated more than 36 times in the DNA segment, and can also have more than 120 repeats. People with 36-39 repeats may or may not show symptoms of Huntington’s disease.
This mutation causes an abnormally long version of the Huntingtin protein, which is cut into smaller, toxic fragments that bind together and accumulate in neurons, which disrupts their normal functioning, causing eventual death of these neurons. They affect the regions of the brain involved in voluntary movements, cognition and emotions.
Symptoms of Huntington’s disease get progressively worse, including uncontrolled movements, abnormal body posture, behavioural changes and decline in cognitive function. The symptoms of this disease usually begin to appear between the ages of 30-50, however a juvenile form of this disease can develop at the age of 20.
Every child with a parent who has Huntington’s disease has a 50% chance of developing it.
Even though Huntington’s is a rare disease, it is important to talk about rare diseases and raise awareness to highlight the impact of these diseases and how it affects lives.

Pain is Multidimensional
We must be careful not to oversimplify pain by placing all of the blame on the tissues of the physical body. Each person's pain experience is unique and can be influenced by any combination of the factors shown here. However, it can be easy to forget this in a world of quick 'fixes' and simple remedies. Stay vigilant, my friends!
Pain researcher, Dr. Lorimer Moseley, PT, PhD, put it well here:
“The biology of pain is never really straightforward, even when it appears to be.” 🤔
