Vitamin D Facts That May Change Your Life

Learn some basic truths about vitamin D.With so much data about vitamin D available, it’s easy to get confused. Some of that information is conflicting. Registered dietician Heidi Moretti says vitamin D helps your body create hormones. She breaks down the most important things you should know about vitamin D. The recommended daily allowance (RDA) for vitamin D is 600 IU (international units). 5000 IU is comparable to a grain of rice. Spending a little time in the sun gives you 10,000 to 25,000 IU of vitamin D. Vitamin D changes disease risk because it affects how your genes work. It dampens genetic expression of autoimmune disorders and cancer. Best nutritional sources of vitamin D are wild salmon and mushrooms, but it takes a lot of food to reach the amounts available from some sunshine.  Supplements can enhance the vitamin D you get from the sun and food. Vitamin D3 comes from lanolin and is an effective supplement. Vitamin D2 is derived from mushrooms and is less effective but vegan. Sun exposure is a concern. If your shadow is long when you stand in the sun, you’re not getting enough of the right kind of UV rays to create vitamin D. Stick to supplements if you don’t have much melanin in your skin. Listen as Heidi joins host Lisa Davis to discuss vitamin D basics you should know and how essential oils can help you. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Now, in The Healing Power of Mindfulness, he shares a cornucopia of specific examples as to how the cultivation of mindfulness can reshape your relationship with your own body and mind - explaining what we're learning about neuroplasticity and the brain, how meditation can affect our biology and our health, and what mindfulness can teach us about coming to terms with all sorts of life challenges, including our own mortality, so we can make the most of the moments we have. Originally published in 2005 as part of a larger book titled Coming to Our Senses, The Healing Power of Mindfulness features a new foreword by the author and timely updates throughout the text.

When Food Is Comfort: Overcome Emotional Eating

Are you an emotional eater?Trauma can open people up to addiction. It might be easier to binge on potato chips than to seek out and address the source of the compulsion Food addiction specialist Julie Simon points out that the brain is wired for emotional reactivity when there isn’t enough nurturing in childhood. Sometimes parents don’t know when they have a nurturing deficiency. Those children become adults and need to learn to nurture themselves. Learning self-care can help rewire your brain, lessening the drive to compulsively eat. Listen for the signals of distress in your body. Examine what you’re feeling and the circumstances surrounding those feelings. Look at what happened just prior to the impulse to eat. Validate your emotions. Develop the compassionate voice within yourself.
