The Moro reflex, commonly known as the startle reflex in babies is a primitive reflex (emerges at 9 weeks in utero) that is present after birth in infants.

The purpose for this reflex is to provide the baby with an internal alarm system to protect himself from danger. We see this reflex in action when the baby is startled by a noise, sudden movement or Changes in gravity as felt by the head.

It consists of a sudden symmetrical movement of the arms upwards - away from the body - with opening of the hands, momentary freeze and then a gradual return of the arms across the body into a clasping posture (Sally Goddard).

The beginning of a new year is usually a time for setting new goals. Goals can relate to health, business, personal growth, relationship or wealth. More often than not however, all our good intentions fizzle and we fail to follow through. Either we lose focus and motivation, procrastinate, change our minds, or simply give up.

Magnesium is the fourth most common mineral in the human body after calcium, sodium, and potassium and is the second most common intracellular cation after potassium. 

Magnesium is an ess...

I came across the polyvagal theory during my Kinesiology studies. It has completely changed my perspective on what I thought I knew about our nervous system (acquired through my Pharmaceutical studies). It is a breakthrough work offering different understanding of human behaviours and trauma and I thought it was really worth a blog.

The polyvagal theory from Dr. Stephen W Porges revisits the anatomy and physiology of one the most important actor of the mind-body connection: the vagus nerve.

It presents new ways of approaching mental health, such as anxiety, depression, recovery from early trauma which can commonly k...

A limiting belief is something you believe to be true about yourself, about others, or about the world that limits you in some way.

We all have limiting beliefs, some are known to us, the others unknown and buried in our subconscious mind.

To keep it simple the mind is divided into two aspects: the conscious and subconscious.

The conscious mind is the logical, thinking or analytical part of our mind. It allows us to set goals and navigate through life. The notion of past and future only exist in our conscious mind.

The subconscious is part of the mind of which one is not fully aware of but which influences one's actions and feelings. It...
