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.

Haptens: A Root Cause Of Food Intolerance, Chemical Sensitivity, Skin Sensitivity, And Autoimmunity

Many of my chemically sensitive clients have reactions from inhaling, eating, and skin/air contact with chemicals.

Haptens effect on the immune system supports why they can wear a gas mask in a perfumey room and still get sick.

I haven't seen anyone else online talking about haptens and I've noticed that a lot of my allergies and chemical sensitivities have improved by reducing my hapten exposure.

In study models, haptens can be used in to induce food intolerance, chemical sensitivities, skin disease, and autoimmunity.

In this post, we will discuss the how haptens may have detrimental effects on humans.

All About Histamine H3 Receptors (HRH3/HR3): Genetics, Mechanisms, And Antagonists

Is histamine a villain… or really a superhero?

It really depends on which receptor it works on and where it is in the body.

In this post, we will discuss how to use the 3rd histamine receptor to boost cognition, memory, and attention.

We will first discuss how the histamine receptors work.

Then, we will move onto the benefits (and downsides) of blocking Histamine H3 Receptor's (HRH3 or H3R) activity with natural and pharmacological methods.

Lastly, we will discuss the potential benefits of increasing HRH3 with some agonists, HRH3's mechanism of action, and some important HRH3 SNPs.
