Come to the calm of a well functioning brain.
The researchers at Duke University have been studying habits. They got some mice addicted to sugar and then gave them a lever to push to get some more. When the sugar was taken away the mice kept pushing the lever, more please, just a little more. They then looked at the brains of these mice and a control group that was not addicted. They found that the basil ganglia was affected, just like with a drug addiction. The basil ganglia is the area of the brain that controls the stop and go of behaviors. So it is important to be aware of our habits. When they are repetitive, they actually change the brain circuitry. It becomes not just appetite control but an addictive process that is brought about by exposure to a potentially addictive chemical. So when that craving is acted upon over and over it will continue.
Give LENS a try. I will help keep the sugar blues from happening.
