The secret to succeeding at work and in life is a positive mood
and the ability to focus on a task at hand. After all, it’s hard to do anything well if you’re unmotivated or can’t concentrate. Yet longer work days, higher expectations, task switching, and a ceaseless stream of emails, messages, and texts have wreaked havoc on our ability to concentrate. In fact, many reports show that healthy adults aren’t able to focus on a task for longer than
20 minutes at a time.

While it’s vital to get exercise and eat well, clinical studies have shown that targeted mood and focus supplements can complement physical activity and diet. So, what nutrients and herbs are best for mood and focus support?

Every year millions of Americans face the reality of living with a mental illness. The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) raises awareness about mental health during Mental Health Awareness Month each May. At CNY Healing Arts, we believe that self-care is extremely important to good mental health, but unfortunately many people struggling with depression, bipolar disorder, or other mental illness allow self-care to slip by the wayside.

Self-care is the key to living a balanced and healthy life. It can improve our mood, reduce stress and anxiety, and help to strengthen relationships.

As you know, the Golden Keys to right living and health are exercise, healthy diet, and positive thinking. While the body has been the primary focus of health in the past, it has become clear that the head and brain are in need of direct care.

With brain pathologies like Dementia, Alzheimer's, MS, and Parkinson’s a possibility down the road, what can we do to prevent them from happening to us? Knowing what causes
these pathologies and what enables the body to eliminate the causes, may help.

Fermentation, a technique employed to prevent spoilage back before everyone had a fridge, is now valued for the rich depth of flavor it brings to dishes. Artisanal miso, pickles, sauerkraut—you name it, and it can be spotted in some of the world’s hottest restaurants.

There’s something else fermentation brings to the table—probiotics. These microorganisms aid what’s known as the gut microbiome, the little critters in your intestines crucial to support proper GI function and other bodily processes as well.

There’s a reason why everyone seems so interested in probiotics. Due to factors such as high stress and rushed meals, many people experience symptoms of poor digestion.

Nowadays, more and more women are beginning to take their digestive health seriously. Study after study is telling us that a well-balanced gut impacts everything from immune function to sleep, energy levels, mood, memory, and more. Which means we can no longer afford to keep quiet about digestive issues and what they may be telling us about our bodies.

As an example, a recent study published in the British Medical Journal examined the role of gut microbes in health and found that “lower bacterial diversity” was linked to a number of adverse conditions.
