DID YOU KNOW that de-cluttering your house can make your brain feel clearer, reduce your stress, and possibly give you more energy? Listen to this testimonial from a client who wanted others to know about it:
"I found an amazing woman who owns the clutter company. She is gentle and non-judgmental and understands that people are so attached to things. I’ve spent the last couple of months decluttering my house, getting rid of old files, reorganizing all closets and cabinets, moving things around, throwing things out, fixing things, and so everything I use daily is in reach. Thinking about it for years has sucked my energy and kept me from moving forward. Since the change I have more energy and my brain feels clearer. There’s more but emotionally l can’t explain it yet."

"Put Out the Fire" Minerals
Steve: Modern lifestyles have deviated considerably from our ancestral routines towards major shifts in processed diets and increased sedentarism (lack of physical movement).
The status of essential minerals in the human body is no longer adequately supported by existing agricultural food systems. This is particular evident in the increased obesity and low-grade inflammation that fails to resolve with time.
Inflamed tissues drive hyperexcitement of immune cells, as these immune cells attempt to "put out the fire". When the immune system cannot put out the fire, but is continually working overtime, this leads to pro-inflammatory conditions as the immune system starts to attack its own tissue.
We can use nutrients to resolve this situation as long as the offenders are discovered and removed (i.e., foods, beverages, chemicals, and more).
Researchers in Nutrients highlighted the minerals magnesium, potassium, calcium, zinc, and iron that have the highest rate of deficiency and through supplementation, may help "put out the fire" of overactive immune systems, if deficiencies exist.
While this study just focused on minerals, there are myriad other supplemental agents that may assist with inflammation, such as fish oil and SPMs, but should always be considered in under the direction of a knowledgable health professional.
