My Friday Five. Five things I've been implementing and exploring this week.
Health idea I've implemented: Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin)
As you know I've suffered from headaches for several years. It was only recently I was told by an ENT that I don't have allergies, but that I suffer from chronic migraines. I was shocked! I went for a second opinion and was told the same thing. Following the food sensitivity diet has significantly reduced the intensity. I've also increased my Vitamin B2 up to 200mg twice a day and increased my magnesium to 800mg per day. The doctor said it could take 4-6 weeks to notice an improvement. If you are planning on increasing your magnesium, increase slowly it has a laxative affect. Yikes!
Product I'm discovering: Pop Up Mesh Food Tent
I love these food tents! We spend a lot of time out doors, going in and out of doors and accidentally leaving doors open. We've managed to solve the majority of our bug problem, but a few flying ones still sneak inside. These tents collapse and are super easy to assemble. I get excited when I see a chance to use them. I pulled one out yesterday to protect some sushi and watched repeated failed attempts by a fruit fly to get to the food.

Book I'm reading: The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter & Miracles by Bruce Lipton
I purchased The Biology of Belief on Audible and I am so thankful. Bruce Lipton was one of the first people to begin researching stem cells and how they react in the body. He is way too smart for me to really follow him. I would have put this book down after the first page. He reads the book with so much excitement and passion it's hard not to be excited even when I don't know what the heck he's talking about. He gets into cellular biology, quantum physics and epigenetics. He explains how cells respond to you emotions and how to control those with your mind. As we meditate we focus on the conscious mind. He encourages us to expand our thoughts to the subconscious. The power of the subconscious is where we can improve our immune system and well-being.
Music I'm listening to: Spooky by Joan Osborne
