Spiral Dynamics > Home A deficiency of dietary omega-3 may explain depressive behaviors [ Print | E-mail | Share ] [ Close Window ] Contact: Séverine Ciancia INSERM (Institut national de la santé et de la recherche médicale) How maternal essential fatty acid deficiency impact on its progeny is poorly understood. In industrialized nations, diets have been impoverished in essential fatty acids since the beginning of the 20th century. Olivier Manzoni (Head of Research Inserm Unit 862, "Neurocentre Magendie", in Bordeaux and Unit 901 "Institut de Neurobiologie de la Méditerranée" in Marseille), and Sophie Layé (Head of Research at INRA Unit 1286, "Nutrition et Neurobiologie Intégrative" in Bordeaux) and their co-workers hypothesized that chronic malnutrition during intra-uterine development, may later influence synaptic activity involved in emotional behaviour (e.g. depression, anxiety) in adulthood. To verify their hypotheses, the researchers studied mice fed a life-long diet imbalanced in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. For more information Source

BANANA AND DATE SCONES - Dairy and sugar free 5-Être centrée en Jaune sur la Spirale Dynamique - Blog de spirale-dynamique Le thème central de la personne positionnée en JAUNE est "Exprimer le soi, mais jamais aux dépens des autres, pour que toute vie puisse continuer de manière naturelle et fonctionnelle". Le niveau VERT n'apporte un jour plus la satisfaction personnelle et montre ses limites dans les relations avec soi et les autres. Dans le livre sur la Spirale, je lis une phrase qui me surprend: "Plus le nombre de gens qui adhèrent à ses valeurs est élevé, plus il devient difficile de fonctionner". Cela signifie donc que la société française, par exemple, ne pourra jamais fonctionner entièrement en VERT! Je m'étais dit que cela permettrait de s'approcher de la société idéale à laquelle aspirent les humains éveillés. Mais j'ai retenu aussi que chaque v-mème a ses côtés négatifs. Lorsque l'on évolue vers le niveau JAUNE, on a pris conscience de l'état désastreux du monde, il n'y a alors plus de "tout le monde, il est beau, tout le monde il est gentil". "L'individu dominé par JAUNE privilégie le savoir.

Codex Alimentarius Loves Toxic Fluoride, Part 1 In the previous article, I wrote about the global implications of Codex Alimentarius. I discussed in some detail the oppressive standards recommended by BfR, which have largely been included in the Codex Guidelines for Vitamin and Mineral Food Supplements. However, there is one more provision included in the risk assessment process that even many critics of Codex are unaware of. This is the goal to not only treat nutrients as toxins, but treat toxins as nutrients. At first, this is not readily apparent. A closer look at the risk assessment provided by BfR provides one with a glimmer of what might one day be a completely Orwellian policy toward vitamins, minerals, and toxins. The fact that researchers have the audacity to claim that vital minerals like Iron should not be consumed in measurements above 0 mg is disturbing enough. However, sodium fluoride, the form of fluoride that is added to most municipal water supplies, food, and drink, is a very dangerous and toxic chemical. Notes:

Roasted Tomato and Tomatillo Salsa - Happyolks » Happyolks Rick Bayless knows salsa. Alice Waters calls him a “brilliant teacher with an inexhaustible curiosity about authentic Mexican cooking.” I couldn’t agree more. Looking for another way to use up the piles of tomatoes I have around the kitchen, I turned to In The Green Kitchen (techniques to learn by heart), where Bayless describes the simple and delicious way to serve up heirlooms and tomatillos. I combined the two, added some mango, and served it on everything from salad, cumin roasted garbanzo beans, and zucchini noodles. Some of you might be thinking, wait – what’s a tomatillo again? “Tomatillos earn their diminutive name by their petite size that varies from that of a cherry tomato to one of a small tomato. Roasted Tomatillo and Tomato Salsa Adapted from Rick Bayless, In the Green Kitchen (Waters) 3 large garlic cloves 4 ripe heirloom tomatoes 6-7 small tomatillos 1 medium sized sweet onion salt 2 limes 1 bunch of cilantro 1 mango

16-Expressions saines et malsaines - Blog de spirale-dynamique L'étude de la Spirale Dynamique nous montre que chaque v-mème a des côtés positifs et des côtés négatifs, des expressions saines et malsaines qui sont souvent la base de nombreux conflits. Il y a donc des bons et des mauvais côtés dans chaque niveau d'existence, même dans le terrible Bleu et Orange si dominant dans les pays occidentaux. Un profil, une sorte de bilan personnel, fait à un moment de ma vie, comme le bilan d'une entreprise, a révélé que mon v-mème dominant est le Vert, sans doute dans les valeurs de surface. En Violet, c'est l'Esprit de clan (une phase de Nous) qui domine. Expressions saines Chance accrue de survivre, sécuritéParticipation directeLiens internes socio-émotionnels fortsRespect envers les anciens et les ancêtresRites de passage augmentant la solidarité Expressions malsaines En Rouge, c'est l'esprit individuel (une phase du Moi) qui domine. En Bleu, nous sommes à nouveau dans une phase de Nous, c'est l'Esprit de Vérité Ultime qui donne le ton. Sonia J.

Organic Consumers Association: What a difference a day makes Imagine my surprise, after promoting this organization on my site, recommending it to so many others and believing this group would be instrumental in the fight against oppressive government regulations and unnecessary legislation that will cause undue hardship on organic farmers, ranchers and anyone devoted to natural food and traditional farming and ranching…..I find this alert from OCA calling the efforts to stop these egregious bills from being passed “internet myths”. (See Alert below) It is apparent NO ONE at OCA has actually read the bills or realizes that the “food Safety” bills are nothing less than pieces of an overall plan. This capitulation on the part of OCA occurred less than 24 hours after the Ag committee hearings that occurred yesterday regarding the intents of these bills. What a difference a day makes! OCA might be interested in reading this list of who is who in the world of corporate pandering before calling any thing a “myth”. Its mythical to think OCA supports you!
