4 Strategies to Help Your Sugar Coated Brain

4 Strategies to Help Your Sugar Coated Brain Yum, the smell of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies or cinnamon rolls. Tastes good, BUT the overindulgence of sugar and grains is now being linked to changes in brain health including memory loss, inability to concentrate, brain fog and senile dementia which is now being called diabetes type 3. Your diet today plays a significant role in your cognition for tomorrow. A new study has revealed the overloading of carbohydrates and sugar contributes to problems in judgment, thinking and language over time, however, protein, healthy fats and fermented vegetables were brain protective. WHAT DOES TOO MUCH SUGAR DO TO YOUR BRAIN? The consistent overload of high levels of insulin eventually cause its insulin signaling to shut down which can lead to permanent brain damage. This drop in glucose to your brain cells may lead to degeneration and cognitive impairment as your brain also produces insulin. We are now seeing how the same process leading to Type 2 Diabetes may also be consistent for your brain. Regularly eating more than 25 grams of fructose per day, will increase the risk of you developing Alzheimer’s as well as maintaining proper insulin levels. HOW MUCH IS TOO MUCH PROTEIN?

IS YOUR CHILD’S BACKPACK TOO HEAVY?

IS YOUR CHILD’S BACKPACK TOO HEAVY? 6 STEPS TO PREVENT INJURY  A new and disturbing trend is emerging due to the use of overweight backpacks for our youth, leading to back pain much earlier than previous generations, according to the American Chiropractic Association (ACA).  A study conducted in Italy a few years ago, found that the average child may be carrying a backpack equivalent of a 39-pound burden for a 176-pound man or a 29-pound load for a 132-pound woman, causing a growing trend in back pain among youngsters. 6 STEPS TO SAFE BACKPACK USE: The maximum weight of your child’s backpack should not exceed 10% of his or her body weight. (ex: a child weighing 85 pounds should not have a pack exceeding 8.5 pounds) A heavier pack will cause your child to bend forward to support the weight on his or her back rather than the shoulders, by the straps. Choose the correct size backpack. It should never hang more than four inches below the waistline or it will put increased weight on the shoulders and cause your child to lean forward when walking. Contents in your pack are most effectively positioned with individualized compartments. Bulky or pointy objects should not be packed on the area that will rest on your child’s back. The straps should be wide and padded and both straps should be worn. Improperly using one strap over the shoulder can cause permanent misalignment of the spine, muscle spasms and back pain. They should be adjustable so they are fitted to your child’s body and not dangle uncomfortably which can also cause a shift...
