We thought it would be appropriate to finally introduce the brains behind Awaken. ——————->
Born and raised in New England (CT); formerly a massage therapist. Nella's passion and motivation is to heal with foods and modalities;specifically, fermented products. In early childhood, Nella dealt with a multitude of stomach issues resulting in countless doctors visits, tests and endoscopys/colonoscopys for many years. The results reflected food intolerances, IBS and a hiatal hernia. The stomach problems persisted and Nella accepted, tolerated and masqueraded the symptoms with multiple prescription medications and OTC antiacids. Her meals were always healthy, growing up in an environment where everything was home cooked. Nella was minimally exposed to processed food. In 2009, she met Noah. Noah’s good friend Whitney introduced Nella to a SCOBY, a culture and bottled kombucha. The healing process and relief for nella began immediately. Within a short period of time, Nella weaned off all medications and 10 years later kombucha continues to be a huge staple in her life. Kombucha was a big help during pregnancy and breastfeeding (the baby benefits from the probiotics). Her son Zion is a lover of anything fermented. Nella's mission is to spread the word around the benefits of fermented products and promote healthy living. 📸 @brandeeanthonymedia
Last night my right leg was completely restless. Nothing was helping. I couldn’t fall asleep at all. I said fuck it I’m slapping some of this on my leg. I rubbed a nickel size on my thigh and my calf and instantly my leg was getting the relief it needed and I slept like a king. Try it next time you hit up your local dispensary! #medicine#thc#cbd#endthestigma
People who do not have children with ADHD or know anyone that has ADHD do not understand ADHD. ADHD is a medical condition. A person with ADHD has differences in brain development and brain activity that affect attention, the ability to sit still, and self-control. ADHD can affect a child at school, at home, and in friendships.
Many kids with ADHD also have learning problems, oppositional and defiant behaviors, or mood and anxiety problems. It's not clear what causes the brain differences of ADHD. There's strong evidence that ADHD is mostly inherited. Many kids who have ADHD have a parent or relative with it.
ADHD is NOT caused by too much screen time, poor parenting, or eating too much sugar.
Things I've learned to help cope and parent: "Connect with others for support and awareness. Join a support organization for ADHD to get updates on treatment and other information." (This is the WHOLE reason I started the ADHD Together group. 11,000 members who struggle every day are getting support!! 💜) "Parent with purpose and warmth.Learn what parenting approaches are best for a child with ADHD — and which can make ADHD worse. Talk openly and supportively about ADHD with your child. Focus on your child's strengths and positive qualities." "Keep your parent–teen relationship positive.Be encouraging. Pay more attention to what your teen is doing well than to problems. Correct your teen in a supportive and calm way. Help teens with ADHD learn how to act or what to do before they do it. That's better than reacting after-the-fact to what they should not have done." "Avoid scolding, blaming, nagging, or lecturing. These will likely cause your teen to tune out what you say. Teens with ADHD are often sensitive to criticism. They may feel upset, angry, or hurt when criticized or punished. These strong emotions can stop them from really hearing the message you're trying to get across. Find teachable moments when you're both feeling calm." #ADHDTogether
Hit the snooze button one more time! 🛌 This study conducted at Massachusetts General Hospital and published in Nature *link in comments* found that insufficient sleep increases ⬆️your chance of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease. Insufficient sleep 😴increases the production of inflammatory white blood cells which have been shown to be a contributor to atherosclerosis and plaque buildup. Sleep disruption breaks down control of inflammatory cell production leading to more inflammation and a greater risk for CVD.💔 Just another reason why we need to focus on many different aspects of our health to achieve wellness! 🙂 #chiropractor#chiropractic#northglenn#colorado#denver #5280

Even though I #teach from home, we still have awesome little work events that I love! This month we did a Valentine's day book exchange! My secret swapper was awesome. :) She sent me "Woman in Cabin 10" (not pictured because my wife has already claimed it lol) and "The Book of Speculation" by Erika Swyler! This is a book I've never heard of, but it sounds amazing! I started it this morning between classes while I enjoyed a cup of Cinnamon chai tea with my CBD honey! I love tea to start my day off. Even more than coffee, I'd say!
✨🔮 New Art ✨✍ | Oh nothin' much, just studying.. & u? 📚🔮 | I have been fascinated and captured by the science of our mind and quantum reality lately. It's hard to believe that I really do have so much power over my own life experience. We are just NOW figuring out (or dare I say 'remembering') what the ancient people knew so long ago. About us. Our inner-reality, the quantum realm, vibration, energy, and our ability to transmute consciousness. To bring awareness to what once was unknown or 'in the dark'. Mental alchemy it is called. And has been called for centuries. This "new age" has ancient roots and is older and wiser than some of the most popularized religions today. "Mysteries are but 'hidden wisdom'." ~ The Emerald Tablets. ✨📖✍
