32+ Zeitgebers (Biological Cues) And How To Enhance Your Circadian Rhythm

Right now as I write this, I am watching the morning sun, sitting on a bench in Dolores Park with my shirt off an laptop out - in 50ºF weather!

Last night I had no sleep as I just traveled from FL to CA and helping my brother pack until 4am… and I woke up around 5am (8am my normal time… thanks jetlag).

That’s why I believe today’s topic of discussion should be circadian rhythm cues, also called Zeitgebers.

Zeitgebers (the German word for “time givers”) are signals that help synchronize the body's circadian clock with the environment.

In this post, we will discuss the most common zeitgebers, how they affect our circadian rhythm, and how we can use them to enhance our sleep, stress, weight, social life, and more.

How Chronic Fluoride Can Damage Mitochondria And The Gut Biome

Fluoride is a trace element, but it is found in our daily exposure more than a "trace". 

In small amounts, it appears to be okay

The problems with fluoride appear to be in chronic use of it over long periods of time, and/or being exposed to a high dose of it in a single instance. 

Apart from skeletal tissue and teeth, fluoride can cause changes in the kidneys, liver, thyroid, parathyroid, pituitary gland, testis, muscle tissues, stomach, brain, neurons, and immune system. 

I have mild dental fluorosis, probably from drinking too much fluoridated water, using fluoridated toothpaste, along with taking fluoride at the dentist to protect my enamel.
