I haven‘t talked about my job much... I‘m a physiotherapist. I work in a practice in France 3 days a week. I have a new patient every 20 minutes. It‘s a very short time. It‘s a lit of patients in one day. The things I do most is giving massages and exercices for the patients to have less pain and regain mobility and strength. Some patients are very positiv and motivated, others are always complaining, passiv and talk about their pain and other negativ things over and over again. My patients are very different in terms of age, origins, mother language, religion, political views, social background, education.... it‘s interesting to get to know so many different people in this kind of intimate way. It‘s also tiering to adapt to an other being more than 20 times a day! And my hands and arms sometimes ache from manual technics and massages... Also, I often tend to question the medicin people take, the drugs they are prescribed. For me a lot of pain and Illnesses could be avoided if people would be educated on how to live a healthy life. Food, exercice, stress release, healthy relationships, healing traumatic exoeriences, letting go of fears and toxic beliefs... taking time for oneself and the things and people we love. Living a life we chose and not one we endure.
But money plays a big role in medicine and the therapy and drugs are not always there to get healthier but to get dependent on a subtance and a system that makes money from suffering and helplessness.
I try to make people realize those things and reconnect to the real solutions inside themselfs... if I feel they are ready to hear about it. It is nit always the case. It is not easy.
I am often frustrated. I don‘t want to continue working like this for years. I feel like other things would fulfill me more and make more sense. I feel like I have the potential to do more meaningful things. I am studying naturopathy in Germany (Heilpraktiker) and I‘ll see later what I want to specialize in. I have time. I have trust 🙏🏽

The gut microbiome: the hottest topic in biomedical research right now. As Hippocrates said, "All disease begins in the Gut," and if we have an imbalanced gut flora or increased intestinal permeability (leaky guy), than we are setting ourselves up for long term health complications.
When we habitually use Advil and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, take antibiotics, use oral contraceptives like birth control or other hormones, make poor food combining choice, excessively drink alcohol, and live very stressed lives, we increase the gaps within the intestinal wall also known as the lamina propria. These gaps in the tight junctions allow bacteria and undigested proteins to enter your bloodstream and react with our underlying immune system.
Did you know that 80% of your immune system is surrounding your intestinal wall? When these undigested proteins and bacteria seep through that barrier, the body reacts by mounting an inflammatory cytokine response in the bloodstream since it realizes that something is out of place.
Ideally, our body selectively absorbs macro and micronutrients through the intestinal wall (the good stuff) and keeps all the bacteria and waste (the bad stuff your body doesn't want) in that digestive track tubing to be excreted through the anus.
Think of this as your sewage system backing up and leaking into your water supply. Overtime, the plumbing builds up and has a cumulative effect, resulting in a larger immune response and more widespread chronic inflammation.
If the immune system becomes hyper-vigilant because of all the proteins and bacteria moving through the body, your immune system becomes hyper-active and starts to attack all these proteins and pathogens that it sees as foreign because it's not supposed to be there.
This can result in new food intolerance, autoimmune disease, digestive issues (IBS/colitis/Crohn's), thyroid dysfunction, malabsorption, brain fog, fatigue, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, eczema/psoriasis and other inflammatory skin conditions. When we talk about getting to the underlying "root cause" of disease, leaky gut is often the underlying issue for many. Seal the gut to fix your health!
UCLA researchers found that children who had never received DTP #vaccine
had half the rate of #asthma
as those who did...did you know that?
RESULTS: The odds of having a history of asthma was twice as great among vaccinated subjects than among unvaccinated subjects (adjusted odds ratio, 2.00; 95% confidence interval, 0.59 to 6.74). The odds of having had any allergy-related #respiratory
symptom in the past 12 months was 63% greater among #vaccinated
subjects than unvaccinated subjects (adjusted odds ratio, 1.63; 95% confidence interval, 1.05 to 2.54). The associations between vaccination and subsequent allergies and #symptoms
were greatest among children aged 5 through 10 years.
Below are 7 ways that will help you restore your energy levels while revealing some potential root causes of why you keep saying “Why do I have no energy”?
► YOU DON’T NEED THE COFFEE/CAFFEINE ❌
Yes, you get an immediate boost with coffee but in the long run, it's a trap. Here’s an idea that works: substitute coffee with Shilajit ☕Add it to a cup of warm water or almond milk and drink.
► REDUCE SUGAR INTAKE 🍭
Your body actually burns fat cleaner and better than it burns sugar. The crash comes from the body using a lot of energy to metabolize the sugar. You end up with a deficit in energy and minerals from eating sugar.
► HYDRATE 💧
Calculate your ideal amount by dividing your body weight by 2 and adding the word ‘ounces’ to this number. Here’s an example: Weight = 140 pounds. 140/2=70 ounces per day. Hydration boosts energy levels and even encourages your body to break down fat better.
► EXERCISE MORE 🏃
Simply break down the 1-hour of exercise into two 30-minute sessions or one 45-minute session and one 15-minute session. Health experts found that this works just as well as doing all the exercise at one time.
► LOVE YOURSELF ❤
Personal hygiene beauty routines are also another expression of self-love. A new beauty routine that brings joy to your life might include refreshing shilajit ice cubes used on your face every morning.
► QUIT EATING THE JUNK FOOD 🍟
Low-nutrient, energy-dense foods offer your body no energy and empty calories that drain you of your nutrient stores.
► CONNECT WITH NATURE 🌿
Putting your feet on the grass, ground, in the river/ocean, or on concrete for 20 minutes acts as a painkiller – and its effects are better than prescription painkillers. This practice is called grounding.
🙏Be healthy, Shilajit Family!
