The Best Supplements for Eczema to Treat Inflammation, Immunity & the Gut

Admin
Last Updated on January 29, 2019 By Dr. Erica Armstrong (bio below) – When healing from inflammation it’s important to supply the body with the proper nutrients, minerals and antioxidants from food; however, sometimes supplementation is necessary.  Today I’m going to share the best supplements for eczema symptoms and root causes you may want to try. In a functional whole person approach toward healing and preventing eczema, we can begin by asking two questions: Does this person need to be rid of something? (e.g. infection, allergen, stress) Does this person have an unmet individual need, that if replaced, would lead to nature’s tendency toward healing? (e.g. nutrients, vitamins, sleep, restoration) This post will focus on the second question. Although we prefer...

How An Eczema Massage Can Benefit The Body and Mind

Admin
Last Updated on February 27, 2019 By Kortney Kwong Hing (see bio below) Is your eczema holding you back from getting a massage? I get it, when I have flares I like to keep them concealed and the last thing I would want is to have someone touching my skin on and around them.

Today, I want to share how an eczema massage can benefit both your body and mind. When it comes to getting a massage, I don’t think my eczema should hold me back. I remind myself masseurs...

How to Get the Most out of Your Chemistry Study Group

Admin
Chemistry is a required subject for a wide range of college majors, and the experience is often different from other classes. We’ve addresses some of the approaches how to succeed in chemistry in other posts on when to take a chemistry class, how to develop good chemistry skills, how to study chemistry, and how to avoid a bad professor. So now, when you’re taking the class, you’re probably noticing a few things. At first, the rules that govern the very small do not seem compatible with the rules that govern our daily lives. To succeed in chemistry, students must challenge many of their assumptions about reality and develop a new way of analyzing problems. This process is difficult to achieve...

The Pentose Phosphate Pathway

Admin
Glycolysis is the core of cellular metabolism. While it is often represented as a single straight line that leads directly into the Krebb’s cycle, there are many offshoots and branching pathways. While we think of glycolysis as mainly producing ATP, there are also many other useful metabolites that can be produced from glucose. The Pentose Phosphate Pathway is an alternative rout for turning Glucose-6-phosphate into fructose-6-phosphate for use in the second phase of glycolysis. It is a unique pathway that doesn’t make or use any ATP, but instead shunts Glucose-6-phosphate away from the preparatory phase of glycolysis to generate large amounts of NADPH (a reducing agent and anti-oxidant) as well as material to synthesize nucleic acids. Any sugars that don’t...

How To Be Productive Over Summer Break

Admin
Congratulations! You made it through another academic year, and now it is time to celebrate with a well-earned vacation! Three glorious months of summer completely free of teachers, due dates, and studying. Maybe you are planning on visiting friends and family, earning some extra cash with a summer job, or just enjoying some personal time without any outside pressures. No matter what else you are planning on this summer, make sure that you keep your brain engaged! There is a large body of research showing that students lose content knowledge and mental flexibility over the long summer break. This problem can be especially difficult for chemistry students beginning organic or biochemistry courses in the fall because the professor will assume...

Never Pull an All-Nighter

Admin
I’ve wanted to write a blog post examining why you should never pull an “all-nighter”—staying up all night cramming—for a while now. I kept putting it off because the list of reasons not to pull all nighters is relatively short: They don’t work, you are going to feel awful afterwards, and they can have lasting consequences on your health. These facts seem so obvious to me that I’m not even sure if it is worthwhile to bring them up. The problem is students are still doing all night cram sessions even though they probably know it’s a bad idea. In my experience, it isn’t just the lazy or bad students who do this either. As a tutor, I have seen...

Carbohydrates

Admin
  Carbohydrates are dietary staples around the world. They also get a lot of negative attention in the media. As new fad diets come in and out of fashion, each one has a different idea for the proper amount of carbohydrates to consume. Although it was once considered a super food, sugar (the simplest carbohydrates) is now shown in a villainous light. There is even a movement to have sugar reclassified as a dangerous and addictive drug! Polysaccharides (what people traditionally think of as “carbs”) were universally hatted a few years ago, but now there are mixed opinions. Ketogenic diets (low carb, high protein and fat) have fallen out of favor due to health risks, however, there is still a...

Caffeine: How it works and myths surrounding it

Admin
Caffeine naturally occurs in more than thirty tropical plants around the globe. Notable examples include coffee in Ethiopia and West Africa, cocoa in Mesoamerica, and tea in China. Wherever these plants grew, local cultures consumed and celebrated them. Often, leaves or seeds of caffeine-containing plants would be brewed into hot beverages which would increase drinker’s energy and alertness. As trade grew, these products became popular globally for the jolt energy that they provided. The rise of coffee houses in Europe has often been cited as one of the catalysts for the scientific revolution. Today, caffeine is the most consumed psychoactive drug on the planet. While products naturally containing caffeine like coffee or chocolate are still popular, caffeine is also added...
