I am continuously learning about health and fitness. I love having energy, mentally and physically, and learning what makes the brain and body function optimally. I have an extensive educational background that allows me to understand how different factors, such as diet and exercise, affect the body at the molecular, cellular, and physiological level.
I am a professor at Fanshawe College in London Ontario and I am the author of the textbook “Human Biology, Anatomy, and Physiology for the health sciences”.
My posts are about physiological facts that can be useful in our daily life; a reference list is at the end of each post. I like to relate information about diet, exercise, sleep, stress, supplements, microorganisms, inflammation or other conditions to how our cells function and try to put perspective on various health topics.
My goal is to share my understanding of why and how things happen in our body, such as sugar cravings, depression, weight gain, inflammation, low energy, metabolism, mood changes, allergies, hormone changes etc.
I hope that you find these topics as awesome as I do. Feel free to post comments or questions!
