What lifestyle decreases neurons, affects memory, problem-solving, mood and health? #memory #mood #depression

 

What lifestyle changes increase neuron production? New research shows we continue to grow neurons in adulthood and we are responsible for and have a choice in continuing to make them.

 

3. How could we benefit from changing calorie and supplement consumption as often as we change our underwear?

After a lifetime of consuming bread, cereals and baked goods, people become depleted in essential digestive enzymes, making food molecules enter the bloodstream without being digested triggering pain/inflammation and a variety of disease-like symptoms.


You are NOT what you eat. You are what you absorb
 
According to a study by the University of Maryland Center for Celiac Research, about 20 million Americans presently suffer from gluten intolerance - an adverse reaction to the protein gluten found in wheat and related grain species, including barley and rye.

"Living a gluten-free lifestyle is really not the solution for optimal health," says health educator Dr. Julie Gatza. "Optimal health means that we should be able to eat whatever we want to eat, and this becomes possible only when we ensure our bodies have all of the proper enzymes required to break down the food molecules we ingest, including hard-to-digest gluten molecules."
Dr. Julie says many people are unable to properly break down foods they consume for a variety of reasons:

  • It has to be a food in the first place
  • It has to contain vitamins, minerals, proteins, healthy fats, and enzymes. These nutrient building blocks need to be digestible, absorbable and usable in order for the body to benefit from them. 
  • Insufficient production of digestive enzymes: 
  • Aging is the primary reason for lack of enzymes. “Beyond the age of 21, the production of enzymes begins to wane, and by midlife, you have about one- half of what you need. Injuries, illnesses, tiredness, being cold or being in recovery mode also prevent your body from manufacturing digestive enzymes because the body’s focus becomes keeping you alive and well. When you become sick you lose your appetite and your digestive enzyme production halts. That’s Nature’s way of saying, we’re not wasting energy on digestion, and we’re only working to heal the body’.

 

  • She mentions genetics that affects foods choices you might need vs someone without a genetic disposition


In this episode, Dr. Gatza's gives ​7 steps for taming gluten sensitivity

The road to rebuilding your tolerance for gluten will vary, person-to-person, but making the suggested changes, individuals should start seeing improvements within 14 to 30 days.

Increasing Nutrient Absorption with Enzyme Supplementation:Dr. Julie says that for individuals over the age of 21, plant-derived enzyme supplements should be taken.

80% of Americans reported experiencing at least one symptom of stress
​such as headaches ​feeling nervous, overwhelmed, sad or anxious (http://ct.counseling.org/2017/03/survey-says-america-stressed/).

The number of Americans who report taking antidepressants has risen by 65% between 1999 and 2014 (https://www.cbsnews.com/news/antidepressant-use-soars-65-percent-in-15-years/).

Doctors are now prescribing antidepressants for non-depression diagnosis, such as anxiety, sleep and increased mental focus. ​ Antidepressants ​

​Risks associated with antidepressants outweigh the benefits,​ ​there may be more effective ways to tackle stress, mood, focus and sleep​. I ask David, “are there supportive studies to back up your supplement claims?

How does he mitigate lawsuits? and more…
