Vivid green, this creamy asparagus soup is rich and easy to make for a spring or Easter dinner. It is dairy-free with coconut milk and can be vegan if you use vegetable broth. Chicken broth is great too. Lemon adds a lift of flavor....
We all have moments of stress in our lives. Our bodies are designed to cope with small bursts of stress. It’s a natural response to a perceived danger that fuels our body with the necessary resources to get ourselves out of that danger and into safety....
See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands. —Isaiah 49:16 NIV God is greater than the universe, and yet he’s close to each one of us. He sees you, he knows everything about you, including the areas where you feel stuck and the areas where you want to grow....
Consuming plenty of probiotic-rich foods is one of the best things you can do for overall wellness. These beneficial bacteria help nourish our gut. Aside from supporting regular digestive function, this supports many key body processes. For example, the health of our intestinal tract plays a major role in how effectively our body absorbs and utilizes nutrients. This is also where a majority of our immune system function takes place, and our gut health also affects the production of mood-regulating neurotransmitters like serotonin....
The gut, our second brain, is now recognized by many health practitioners to be the root cause of disease and where healing starts.

Sometimes it did and I am grateful for that. I like my mind most of the time. In fact, it has been one of my superpowers when directed at understanding the nature of health and disease and the mysteries of human biology and in translating that into practical approaches to bring Functional Medicine to hundreds of thousands of people and helping them get healthy. ...

Clueing in to these decisions can help make them work for you rather than against you. Increase your mindfulness factor with these strategies:...
Have the same mindset as Christ Jesus. —Philippians 2:5 NIV Changing your health habits is like driving a speedboat on a lake with your autopilot set to go east. If you want to reverse course, you could try to physically force the wheel in the opposite direction, but you would likely get tired and let go, and the boat would drift back....
Social rules dictate we should be nice to other people. Yet how many of us are nice to ourselves? I’m willing to bet that you wouldn’t dream of talking to others the way you talk to yourself.
