Physiological Benefits of Yoga

Have you ever practiced yoga? Do you have someone in your life who seems to live at a yoga studio? The anecdotal evidence for practicing yoga is unquestionable: feelings of peace, mindfulness, heightened awareness, lowered stress, increased strength, among so many others. Even just 15 minutes a day of yoga is able to soothe the body by connecting breaths with movement to provide psychological benefits to this practice.

Even more empowering than the physical and psychological aspects of yoga are the physiological implications of current research. This National Health Interview Survey in 2015 looked to compare the use of different complementary health approaches in the United States. They found that 9.5% of U.S. adults (21 million) used yoga as a mind & body practice; this is an increase from 6.1% in 2007 and 5.1% in 2002. The numbers are still rising.

With this rise in the application of yoga to help improve health, it is valid to say there is something else more significant that people are benefitting from in their practice. Take 25 minutes of your time to watch this incredible video to get insight on where research is taking yoga.

Since 2012, Medicare has covered cardiac rehabilitation programs that include yoga. This is astounding to see alternative medicine applied amongst the Western medicine practices to help with cardiac rehabilitation by stabilizing blood pressure and reducing stress. Similarly, in this interview, Susan Taylor, PhD. discusses how neuroplasticity is directly affected by the meditation that takes place during yoga. “Positive thoughts expand our brains. Negative thoughts shrink them.” An extensive number of research studies show the positive effects of yoga on the neural communication across the brain that provides a more stable brain and “self-directed neuroplasticity”.

Increase Your Lifespan With Ketosis

What would you do if I told you I had the key to adding more happy years to your life?

Would you jump for joy knowing you’ll have more time to travel the world? Would you wake up every morning knowing you’ve got more time to spend with your children? Would you stop stressing the small stuff? Would guilt and remorse leave your heart?

It is my goal to help you grasp the fact that you are currently in the only body you will ever receive. You’ve got an incredibly smart body that deserves your respect. The energy you put into your body is exactly what you will get out of it. From a psychological point of view, that means living with gratitude, compassion, love and an open mind. From a physical point of view, that means doing uplifting activities like walking, yoga, hiking, kayaking and even sleep! With that said, let’s dive into how ketone bodies present life span extending properties by reducing oxidative stress and being an effective tool for combating free radical damage.

Above, you see the  molecular structure of three ketone bodies. These three ketones are the subject of a critical review from IUBMB Life titled Ketone Bodies Mimic The Lifespan Extending Properties of Calorie Restriction. It’s fascinating really. This critical review discusses the genetic mechanisms of life expansion, the antioxidant system, the indications of your telomere length, and other anti-aging mechanisms, ALL of which can be optimized with the presence of ketone bodies.

The ketogenic diet is a wonderful way to nutritionally get into ketosis. Furthermore, in the above review, their results showed that consuming exogenous (sourced outside the body) ketone esters showed a two-fold decrease of glucose and a three-fold decrease of insulin in rats. What profound results!

“Aging in man is accompanied by the deterioration of a number of systems.”

We know that.

What you might not know is that “the unique ability of ketone bodies to supply energy to the brain during periods of impairment of glucose metabolism” is what make ketosis a highly effective treatment against neurological diseases that are currently untreatable with traditional medicine.

Reducing Anxiety!

With exogenous ketone supplementation! 

SNOOOPY
An article published on December 6, 2016 in Frontiers in Molecular Neuroscience discusses the impact that ketone ester and BHB salts on blood glucose and BHB levels as well as performance on an elevated plus maze (EPM). What these researchers, including Dr. Csilla Ari and Dominic D’Agostino, concluded is astounding!

After 83 days chronic and 7 days sub-chronic exogenous ketone supplementation to a standard diet, the following results ensued!

  • less entries were made into closed arms on the maze
  • more entries were made into open arms on the maze
  • more distance was traveled in open arms on the maze

With these results, researchers concluded that exogenous ketone supplementation may represent a promising anxiolytic (anxiety-reducing) strategy by helping induce nutritional ketosis. Take a moment to look through this incredible research article!

If you haven’t tried exogenous ketones for whatever reason, I believe anxiety reduction is a good reason to start!

Stress Kills Ketosis

This article has been created with the goal of helping to weed out common misunderstandings about what ketogenic nutrition should look and feel like.

You should NOT be starving yourself everyday in an attempt to lose weight. You should NOT feel so guilty that your cortisol levels are through the roof. You should NOT remove carbohydrates without replacing it with other nutrients: FAT AND KETONES!

That’s the paramount point here. The management of insulin is the key reason ketosis became an area of empirical research. Insulin, a hormone, is released into the body and promotes fat storage. Those spikes in insulin that take place with sugar intake are the culprit. In this article by Dr. Adam Nally from Surprise, AZ, he addresses Common Ketosis Killers in layman’s terms so every single person can understand it quite simply.

How do you kill ketosis?

  1. carbohydrates
  2. alcohol
  3. excessive protein
  4. malnourishment
  5. artificial sweeteners
  6. flavored coffee creamers
  7. unnecessary medications (upon doctor’s approval)
  8. STRESS

Numbers 1 through 7 can generally be managed by self-control, personal mediation and increased respect for your body! Number 8 is the MOST CHALLENGING! Am I right?

CARTOON

Lowering stress seems to be the most difficult to adjust. In my years of practice, every person deciding to make a lifestyle change can add or remove whatever nutrients they need to achieve their health and wellness goals. However, when stress levels aren’t decreased, nothing CAN change! Cortisol, the hormone stimulated by the increase in stress, literally kills ketosis and neuron communication in the brain. Adequate sleep is imperative, and even 10 minutes a day of meditation, stretching, yoga or that splendid “me time” could help combat how stress is impacting your daily life.

I hope this serves as a reminder to respect your body and give yourself some love. If you are not sure what that looks like, read through other articles I’ve written here on my site. As stated above, exogenous ketones help mediate the effects of stress, and are available for purchase here. Here’s to the rebirth of ketosis!

NEW BRAND!

Hello, everyone! Thank you for visiting the new and improved Coral Jinright website!

As you may have noticed, the title of my website is now “Coral Jinright Nutrition Consulting”, but my website is still coraljinrightfitness.wordpress.com.

It will take a while for the website name to be changed to the new business name, solely because I have over 300+ business cards around the nation and am still working to make sure those people with that site name are able to find my content.

I am still a certified personal trainer…. this means I am still going to be sharing techniques for fitness, corrective exercise and stretching!

The majority of our world has a hard time “moving” and eating properly. For that reason, I am gearing my focus towards nutrition solely because you can work out all you want and still never see the results you want if your nutrition sucks! If your brain isn’t operating correctly, the whole body is S.O.L.

There you have it, folks! If you have any questions, please comment below!

Giving Him all the credit,

Coral Jinright

Depression, PTSD and Other Mental Illnesses

Every week, we come into contact with new people that enter our lives. These people can be introduced into your life as clients, friends, customers, co-workers, love interests, and even family you’ve never met before. One thing that we all possess is a real self, which is the person that we are currently living as. However, we all also possess an ideal self, that person we wish or aim to become. This is something I studied in great detail my junior year at Hendrix College in Dr. Dana Leighton’s Social Cognition course when I wrote this research paper discussing The Salience of Guilt, Self-Blame and Hopelessness.

fully functioning person, according to Carl Rogers, a humanistic psychologist, is one who is possesss these five characteristics:

  1. Open to experience: both positive and negative emotions accepted. Negative feelings are not denied, but worked through.
  2. Existential living: being able to live and fully appreciate the present, allowing themselves to experience life, not always looking back to the past or forward to the future.
  3. Trust feelings: decisions made ourselves due to feeling, instincts and gut-reactions are paid attention to and trusted.
  4. Creativity: not playing safe all the time, taking risks and thinking creatively, including the ability to adjust and change and seek new experiences.
  5. Fulfilled life: happy and satisfied with one’s life, yet looking for new challenges and experiences.

Such a person also exists when the individual is able to accept that our selves are not in congruent (the real self is not full equivalent to the the ideal self), and is patient and understanding with themselves in working towards becoming as such. But what happens when the individuals does not accept the gap between the real self and the ideal self is most frequently mental illness, such as depression, post traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. This is something that I dedicated a significant amount of my time to research. In fact, I intend to continue to pursue research and turn my paper (referred to at the top of the page) into a fully comprehensible book on what this all means. It’s something that I am very passionate about.

Please take the 30 minutes it may require to really read through this information and digest it. Something as fundamental as this is a big reason why there is disconnect in our society. So many people don’t believe they are capable of ever becoming their ideal self, and therefore revoke their ability to be fully functioning people contributing to society. Similarly, most people witness the impediments faced by such a person and are unable to put their egos aside. They can’t understand that the person they see can’t just set aside their concerns and instantaneously become the person they wish to be. The concept of patience is simple, but hardly practiced.

Just a tidbit to take with you as you embark on new journeys. Have a marvelous weekend!

Ever so graciously,

Coral Jinright

Become Hungry For Life Again

One week ago today, April 20, I had 69 visitors and over 90 page visits. Let’s try and make that a daily occurrence! Share with your friends and family to make sure they get their daily dose, too.

for-me-life-is-continuously-being-hungry-the-meaning-of-life-is-not-simply-to-exist-to-survive-but-quote-1

Today’s a day of action-planning, of introversion. What the heck do I want from my life?

Here’s a few things I’ve come up with for the remainder of 2016:

  • have open dialogue and a deeper relationship with God
  • create change in people’s lives (both physically and mentally)
    • help clients reach a new personal best every time I meet with them
    • educate clients on the importance of nutrition for mind and body
    • influence non-clients to want to learn more about exercise and nutrition
  • attend at least 4 seminars/conferences to gain knowledge in my field(s) of work
  • compete in a figure contest and place 1st
  • observe/intern at a prosthetics lab to work my way to grad school
  • upgrade my 2007 Kawasaki 650R for another sportsbike (make/model to be decided)
  • drive my 1969 Jeepster Commando through all kinds of scenery
  • become more financially stable with income and expenses
  • make a social life for myself (interactions outside of those with my pups)
  • record at least one song of voice and guitar as a Christmas gift
  • have more contact with family and friends outside of Austin

Take an hour one day to sit down and write down some short-term (6-12 month) goals. Every week, take 30 minutes to go over your list, see where you’re putting the effort and make sure you’re doing something weekly to work towards all of those goals. Some goals might take more persistence than others… Budget your time. Make sure you have your priorities in line. Yes, this is the only life you’ve got.

Don’t find yourself looking back every December asking yourself “What did I do this year?” and having your response be a blank stare on your face with bags under your eyes because all you’ve done is work, work, work and not pursue YOU!

Here are a few great links to help you work on those characteristics that are essential to deciding, working towards, and obtaining your life goals:

  1. Fear: https://www.tonyrobbins.com/mind-meaning/how-to-use-fear/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_content=How%2520to%2520Use%2520Fear&utm_campaign=Editorial

  4. Hungry for Life: http://www.hungryforlife.org/blog/why-again-did-we-start

Instead of dragging your feet, make every step purposefully. Instead of waiting, go out and put your dreams in the palm of your hand. Instead of falling victim to setbacks, use them as a diving board to jump deeper into what you want in your life.
