Chill before you drill.

You periodically hear about someone who exercised while angry and then dropped dead of a heart attack. Not only can anger drive up your blood pressure, exercising while angry is like driving a car with the brakes on—it drives up your blood pressure even more. So, if you’re angry cool down before exercising. Plus, here are more heart mistakes to avoid: https://bit.ly/3j0Jm1J

As we get ready to ring in a new year, I want to take a moment to reflect on 2020. It's an understatement to say it has been a challenging year. But yet it was a year of personal growth, since growth comes with challenges. Small businesses have been met with many obstacles this year as well for our health. I am thankful for the blessings for this year and thankful for our patients, with whom we share optimism for the coming year. We can't say thanks enough for our faithful patients and the support you have provided in these difficult times. Fortunately our clinic is still seeing patients and we will continue our excellent care in the coming year. We are fortunate to have Laurene on our team. She has been a real blessing to my practice and we're thankful to have her back for 2021. We will continue to see patients and take care of chronic pain, hormone imbalances, and digestive health problems. There has been numerous small acts of kindness from our patients this year and hope to continue into 2021. So, here is a special wish for all of our friends and family in the coming year. Wishing you a blessed and happy New Year. Thank you again from Dr. Howell and Laurene at Arizona Natural Family Medicine.

Vitamin D – From Bones to Brains
Contrary to popular belief, it was thought that vitamin D receptors were only in bones, intestines, and kidneys – we now know that vitamin D receptors are everywhere in the body. There is scientific proof that vitamin D receptors exist in the brain and that the active form of vitamin D stimulates the production of mood-elevating serotonin. This explains how it may help reduce depression or a chronically foul mood. Fat cells also have vitamin D receptors, and fat cells can burn more calories if they have more vitamin D. When you’ve had enough food, fat cells secrete a hormone called leptin that allows you to push away from the table. Low vitamin D levels will interfere with this appetite-suppressing hormone whose job it is to regulate your body weight. Speaking of which, vitamin D deficiency has also been shown to exacerbate type 3 diabetes, impair insulin production to the pancreas, and increase insulin resistance.
Dr. William Grant, director of the Sunlight, Nutrition and Health Research Center in San Francisco and a highly respected scientist in the field, has suggested that increased sun exposure would result in 185, 000 fewer cases of internal cancers(specifically, cancers of the breast, ovaries, colon, prostate, bladder, uterus, esophagus, re**um and stomach) every year and 30,000 fewer deaths in the USA alone.
Let’s not forget that sunlight just helps you feel better – not something to be dismissed in the high-stressed world in which we live in now. Those who heed warnings to avoid the sun because “sunlight is dangerous” are robbed of the life-sustaining benefits of sun exposure- and the idea that sunlight is dangerous denies basic evolutionary science. 1
