In 1958 rockabilly artist Eddie Cochran recorded a smash hit called “Summertime Blues.” So, what are exactly are the summertime blues? Is there a cure for them?
Many of you are familiar with SAD (seasonal affective disorder) where sufferers experience a lack of energy and depression in response to winter’s cold weather and absence of light. To accommodate to longer nights, the body produces higher levels of melatonin over an extended period of time. Melatonin is a hormone that promotes sleep. If you are producing too much melatonin, you may have trouble waking up. Additionally, winter’s darkness reduces serotonin, a neurotransmitter produced in the pineal gland that is associated with feelings of wellbeing.
Summertime depression or Summertime Season Affective Disorder is a different matter. If the onset of summer marks the beginning of insomnia, sleep deprivation, loss of appetite and interest in food, weight loss and an uptick in feelings of anxiety, agitation and inappropriate anger, you could be suffering from summertime depression or summertime SAD. A hallmark of this disorder is the return of symptoms every year in the late spring or early summer. More

Imagine, each day you wake up feeling exhausted. You have trouble concentrating. Small irritations make you fly off the handle. Eventually, you are unable to get out of bed.
Mold toxicity is no joke. The byproducts of indoor mold include mold spores and mycotoxins. Common health problems from mold toxicity include skin problems, nausea, headaches, poor concentration, insomnia and depression. That’s not all; some mycotoxins cause liver damage and can be fatal.
How does mold toxicity happen? Water damaged buildings are the perfect breading ground for toxic indoor molds. A damaged roof, a pipe can leak or a leaky foundation are often the culprits. You don’t always know you have a leak, because the problem can be hidden by sheetrock, a bathroom vanity or behind a kitchen cabinet. In a matter of days, the warm wet environment provides the perfect breeding ground for indoor molds.
If you have this problem, there are several important steps that need to taken, often with the help of professionals. David describes these steps in his vlog here:

Painful menstruation or dysmenorrhea is a common and sometimes difficult problem. Menstrual cramps can begin one or two days prior to your period and continue throughout the menstrual cycle. Some women experience headaches, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
Most women who experience dysmenorrhea do not have an underlying reproductive problem such as uterine fibroids, endometriosis or an infection.
What are menstrual cramps?
The uterus or womb is the reproductive organ that houses the fetus during pregnancy. This pair shaped organ is largely smooth muscle. After ovulation the uterus releases the chemical mediator prostaglandin, which signals the uterus to contract. If prostaglandin levels are excessive, contractions can be severe and lead to abdominal, low back and thigh pain. Prostaglandin also triggers the uterus to contract during childbirth.
Childbirth relieves painful periods – it’s a bit of a mystery.
