Tipping the Clock Toward Health

Foods and Other Strategies to Help Tip Circadian Biology Away from Inflammation and Toward Health.

About the Book

Tipping the Clock Towards Health includes lifestyle and dietary strategies that may help our body switch from our daytime, stress response, circadian chemistry to our night-time, sleep chemistry that is healing and recovery oriented. Too much of modern lifestyles and typical diet choices may be leaving us metaphorically and literally out of the dark. Light and other signals from our environment and diet tell our body it is safe to rest and recover instead of being on constant alert for danger. Flavor and odor in healthy natural foods also can help guide us to foods that help our body heal and cope with stress.

Jennifer Depew

Registered Dietitian with fifteen years of experience in public health counseling and management, working with prenatal and early childhood health. Projects included participation in focus groups regarding software development for adapting paper charting to online charts at the state level, and self study and video education at the local county level. Also experience consulting with residential facility nutrition care and dietary services management. More recently I've been writing online on several blogs and websites:

  • earth-ocean.info/About Jen - ideas for a sustainable future with a focus on the need to re-oxygenate the low oxygen zones of the ocean.
  • peace-is-happy.org - ideas for promoting a peace - health, happiness, and a secure homeplace - Maslow's Heirarchy of Human Needs.
  • effectivecare.info - understanding human instincts can help with designing policies that will be more effective and likely easier to implement.
  • transcendingsquare.com - my main blog which I think of as my notes if a first draft, or as my educational handouts to share in a virtual world.

Helping people prevent chronic illness with methods that can support a sustainable future is my overall goal. Pain hurts individuals and economies, and our pain also can hurt the environment as medical treatments and supplies add to the burden of waste and toxins. Modifying agricultural methods is also needed for the health of individuals and the planet as it removes bioactive phosphorus from the growing cycle and adds it to the ocean where it can cause algal blooms that lead to low oxygen levels. Plants have healing phytonutrients are also often tolerant to heat as the phytonutrients that are healing are developed by the plant in response to the oxidative stress of heat and sunshine. We can use these healing plants to improve health care with methods and crops that may still be useful in a hotter climate of the future.
