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.Read More
Do you get the odd sensation of body buzzing like your body is moving when you are completely still?
The feeling could be when laying down at the end of the day, but it feels like something is either buzzing next to you or inside of you.
These are what I call Internal Tremors or Body Buzzing.
This is not primarily anxiety based, although the unknown cause of this odd phenomenon can trigger anxious feelings.Read More

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.
