This podcast is sponsored by Joovv– a company pioneering at-home use of red light therapy. Also called photobiomodulation, this revolutionary therapy uses specific wavelengths of red light to create a biochemical effect in our cells that serves to increase mitochondrial function. This improves ATP (adenosine (ah-den-o-zine) triphosphate) production in the body. ATP is the source of energy for every cell in the body. Without it, we don’t function at all. Without enough of it, we don’t function well. For this reason, some of the documented benefits of red light therapy include me of the documented benefits of light therapy include: improved skin health and complexion, increased collagen production, muscle recovery, reduced joint pain and inflammation, reduction of wrinkles, and faster healing. There is also some evidence it can benefit the thyroid, which is why I use it daily. You can learn more and get a free gift with any purchase at with the code wellnessmama.

Working Remotely Is Not Necessarily Stress-Free

Many believe that working from home or remotely can foster freedom and stress-free job satisfaction, and that everyone wants  more work autonomy. A new study from Baylor University in Waco, Texas, says “Not so fast.” In the study, researchers examined the impact of remote work on employee well-being. Their findings suggest that a variety of factors can undermine or accent the employee benefits of working off-site. Accordingly, researchers developed new strategies to help managers provide remote-work opportunities that are valuable to the employee and the company. “Any organization, regardless of the extent to which people work remotely, needs to consider well-being of their employees as they implement more flexible working practices,” the researchers wrote. The study appears in the European Journal of Work and Organizational Psychology . In the review, a total of 403 working adults were surveyed for the two studies that made up the research, said lead author Sara Perry, Ph.D. Re

Discovery may change cancer treatment

A discovery has been made that may change the principles for treating certain types of cancer. The discovery relates to the so-called telomeres that constitute the ends of human chromosomes. Short telomeres are related to unhealthy lifestyles, old age and the male gender -- all of which are risk factors in terms of high mortality. Up until now, the assumption has been that short telomeres are related to ill health. The challenge for researchers worldwide has therefore been to find out whether or not the short telomeres were indeed a signifier or an indirect cause of increased mortality. from Top Health News -- ScienceDaily via IFTTT
