DO YOU CRAVE SUGAR?

DO YOU CRAVE SUGAR?

DO YOU CRAVE SUGAR? THIS IS… “NATIONAL DIABETES MONTH” Can this be possible?.. Recent statistics have shown that 2/3rds of Americans are overweight or obese and that 30% of American children are obese. In addition, millions of us are in a state of insulin resistance, or pre-diabetes, that could progress into diabetes. According to the latest research out of the University of Missouri, one in four Americans are struggling with diabetes with the majority of them as type 2. Haven’t you heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day? Now imagine how you feel when you skip breakfast. Your body begins to run low on energy, and your fuel supply, like the engine in your car, begins to slow down thereby causing you to run on fumes. So, by mid morning, you grab a high-calorie food item like a muffin or donut to relieve your hunger. What happens next? This high calorie, sugary snack causes insulin to be released out of the pancreas into the bloodstream, while the body is trying to adapt to the surge in blood glucose from the snack just eaten. When this pattern is repeated throughout the day, blood sugar levels show sharp spikes-both highs and lows. Over time, the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas wear out leading to high levels of blood glucose which is called diabetes. Normal fasting blood sugar should be less than 100mg/dl. Diabetes can cause many serious health issues and is associated with obesity, heart disease, and increased mortality. It is the fifth deadliest disease in the United States. A preventative approach would be to make sure...

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? Rule of thumb is not to exceed one gram of protein per kilogram of lean body mass. Your lean body mass can be calculated by finding out your percent of body fat and subtracting that from 100. Then multiply that times your current weight to get your lean body mass. If you need to reduce your protein, replace the calories with healthy quality fats as...

4 Easy Steps: Declare Your Independence From Pain

4 Easy Steps: Declare Your Independence From Pain

4 Easy Steps: Declare Your Independence from Pain “My back for no apparent reason was so painful.  I couldn’t move.  After two days in bed a friend recommended I see Dr. Rosenfeld.  I could barely drive or sit when I came in.  This had happened several times in the past.   A medical doctor had given me muscle relaxers only.  They weren’t all that helpful. I experienced miraculous results after visiting Dr. Rosenfeld.  I am able to do more than before in movement and strength with no pain. My whole outlook each day is more positive and I feel more energized.” GM Use RICE method–Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation—for initial 24-72 hours after an injury.  Ice for 20 min about every hour or two. Then alternate: heat 10 min, ice 10 min, heat 10 min.  Eat a diet rich in whole, unprocessed foods emphasizing magnesium and calcium foods found in: kale, collard greens, almonds, blackberries, mustard greens, oatmeal, oranges, navy beans and sunflower seeds.  Avoid or limit foods that contribute to acidity such as refined sugars, caffeine, salty foods and alcohol.  Limit foods high in saturated fats, including red meats, dairy products, warm-water shellfish and partially-hydrogenated oil. Drink chlorophyll-rich, green drinks, such as extracts of wheat grass.  Eat more fatty fish (mackerel, herring and salmon) and preferably wild. Decrease animal fat consumption as it is a primary source of arachidonic acid, a precursor of a number of inflammatory prostaglandins.  Identify and avoid food allergens. We have specific tests to check for food allergies. Calcium and Magnesium relax the muscles.  Analgesic Herbs: Chamomile, Skullcap, Passion Flower, Kava Kava and White Willow Bark are sedative...

How To Decrease Calories During the Holidays

HOW TO DECREASE CALORIES DURING THE HOLIDAYS Enjoy eating without guilt.  If you overeat at one meal, move on and eat better for your next one.  Celebrations are about family & friends not food as the focus. Remember: balance, moderation and variety are the keys to health. Delete the word “DIE”t and CHEATING from your vocabulary. Before going to a party: Never go hungry- have some nuts, fruit, veggies, broth-based soup, hard-boiled egg, hummus, lo-fat cheese or yogurt, vegetable juice or protein shake. Also, drink 1-2 glasses of water. Take a catnap to avoid being tired therefore overeating & craving. Add an extra cardio work-out that week. Eat healthfully the week before going to a party. Bring your own food or dessert that you can eat. At the party: Choose a small plate and stroll around the buffet table to selectively choose your favorite must-have foods & desserts first. Then choose small portions of your favorite foods to taste only. (2 cupped handfuls) Fill ½ your plate with raw veggies to fill up on. Take a 20 minute break before refilling your plate. This will tell your brain you’re full so when you go back for seconds you will choose less high sugar/fat foods. If you don’t like a food you’re eating, don’t finish it. Chew slowly, really taste each bite and put your fork down regularly. Leave an empty space on your plate between each food item. Put everything you eat on a plate including that one piece of chocolate. Keep an arm’s distance or more from the food table when standing around talking. Focus on other things...

  10 VITAL  KEYS TO DIABETES PREVENTION    Did you know that the average American consumes more than 120 pounds of sugar per year, which is approximately 45 teaspoons per day? Did you know that recent statistics have shown that two-thirds of Americans are overweight or obese and that thirty percent of American children are obese? According to the latest research out of the University of Missouri, one in four Americans are struggling with diabetes with the majority of them as type 2.

Diabetes can cause many serious health issues and is associated with obesity, heart disease, and increased mortality. It is the fifth deadliest disease in the United States. A preventative approach would be to make sure that blood glucose levels are stable throughout the day. Our brain needs a continuous level of blood sugar to avoid anxiety caused by blood sugar fluctuations. Are you at risk for diabetes? Do you have a family history of diabetes? Are you overweight? Do you have high blood pressure? Are your cholesterol levels abnormal? Are you over 45? Do you have a history of gestational diabetes? Drug Treatment the answer? A new meta-analysis of 13 randomized controlled trials involved more than 33,000 people showed that drug treatment of type 2 diabetes is not only ineffective, it’s dangerous as well. These medications poison the enzymes in our body and disrupt the normal biochemical pathways. In general, a drug therapy protocol should treat the underlying cause of the illness that the drug is being...
