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

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...

Low Energy? Stressed? When Saliva vs Serum Hormone Testing?

Low Energy? Stressed? When Saliva vs Serum Hormone Testing? If you have symptoms involving: fatigue, insomnia, stress, frequent illness, PMS, hot flashes, blood sugar, and weight, you may want to consider having your cortisol levels as well as hormones tested. Men and women over the age of forty may want to do a baseline test. Frequently imbalances will be detectable for a time period before symptoms gain attention. Difference Between Saliva & Serum Hormone Testing? Saliva testing is an EASY and a NONINVASIVE way of assessing one’s hormone status and is proving to be the most reliable medium for measuring hormone levels. The difference between steroid hormones in saliva and serum is based on whether or not the hormones are bound to proteins in the medium used for testing. The majority of hormones exist in one of two forms: FREE (5%) or PROTEIN BOUND (95%). It is only the FREE hormones that are biologically active, or BIO-AVAILABLE, and available for delivery to receptors in the body. Those which are protein bound do not fit those receptors and are considered not bio-available. When blood is filtered through the salivary glands, the BOUND HORMONE COMPONENTS ARE TOO LARGE to pass through the cell membranes. Only the UNBOUND hormones pass through and into the saliva. What is measured in the saliva is the BIO-AVAILABLE hormone, the clinically relevant portion which will be delivered to the receptors in the tissues of the body. SALIVARY HORMONE levels are expected to be much lower than serum levels, as only the UNBOUND hormones are being measured. When your doctor measures serum hormone levels and prescribes hormone...

High Fructose Corn Syrup & Your Brain

HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP & YOUR BRAIN High fructose corn syrup is a blend of glucose and fructose and is significantly cheaper than table sugar, therefore making it very attractive to the food industry for its use as a sweetener.  It is found in very poor quality foods that are nutritionally void and filled with other disease promoting fats, salt, and chemicals.  The scary thing is that we are consuming high fructose corn syrup and sugar in pharmacologic quantities never before experienced in human history: 140 pounds a year per person versus 20 teaspoons a year 10,000 years ago!1 What happens when one consumes high fructose corn syrup? Insulin spikes Production of triglycerides and cholesterol is triggered Toxic gut bacteria enter your blood stream and trigger inflammation.   These rapidly absorbing sugars enter the blood stream and go straight to the liver, causing damage and “fatty liver” conditions which affect 70 million people in this country.1  The glucose that is absorbed and causes the insulin spike leads to increased metabolic disturbances that drive increases in appetite, weight gain, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, dementia, and more. With childhood obesity rates more than doubling in children and quadrupling in adolescents in the past 30 years, it’s hard not to overlook the consequences of a diet that contains high fructose corn syrup in many of the foods we consume. What about the effects of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) on the brain? HFCS depletes the body of the natural mineral zinc which is responsible for cleansing the body of heavy metals like mercury, arsenic, and cadmium, as well as aluminum and other...
