    It is facinasting! It's amazing the effects all of these wonderful healthy foods have on us! It's just another reason to eat well! I think the whole cortisol thing is interesting. That's definitely even more motivation to not get stressed out! To not be stressed is best! So what are you reading in the book now, anything else?

    Yes I'm just reading a book on nutrition for the mind, it's quite fascinating. It goes into connections with mental illness and certain nutritional deficiencies.

    I agree I think that health has to be looked at as a whole mind, body, and spirit!

    Yes so when your body is stressed a whole bunch of things happen including cortisol being released. It is the hormone that gets everything going so that we can either fight or flee including raising glucose levels in the blood for energy. Yes that is true, so in an effort to use energy elsewhere the immune system gets depressed when you are stressed.

    That does sound interesting! I'm really into the whole 'nutrition for your mind' thing! I love thinking about how to benefit not just myself mentally, but everyone and everything that exists, mentally, spiritually and physically! I agree, the world definitely needs more holistic healing! Cortisol is the hormone released in the body when you get stressed right? I think I read something about stress preventing the immune system from functioning optimally. Have you ever heard anything like that?

    That's awesome! The world needs more holistic healing and nutrition. I just finished learning about cortisol and stress and the effects on the body. Right now I'm reading a book about the optimum nutrition for the mind. Very interesting!

    That's great! I'm glad you like it! I'm actually thinking about taking some courses myself and becoming a naturopathic doctor! I'm really interested in helping others! So what are you learning about right now?

    It's going great! I finally feel like I found my niche I'm learning so much especially about myself. What kind of work do you do?

    Biography
    I'm a lover of food, nutrition, and all things health related. I'm currently in school for Holistic Nutrition and work as an Online Health and Wellness Coach. About two years ago through the guidance of a friend I started the process of becoming vegan because of numerous health reasons. It has helped me to heal in more ways than one, and has completely changed my life. I look forward to getting to know some fellow vegheads and share about my journey.
