Rarely do we consider anxiety as a normal human experience.

Consensus about its origin shows anxiety was needed for survival to keep us alert and safe from danger.

However, if we manifest anxiety beyond what we were designed for, exaggerated in excess of real danger, when under psychological distress or disease, that is abnormal.

Anxiety disorder occurs from a set of risk factors and variables such as genetics, brain chemistry, personality, and life events. It affects 18.% of adults in the United States (approximately 40 million adults between 18 to 54 yrs old)

In this episode, Dr. Webster and I discuss causes of anxiety often unknown or dismissed by many, such as emotions (what we’re feeling), medication, supplements, food, and genetics.

Are you contributing to your anxiety beyond what your body and health was designed for and can handle?

It's not uncommon for someone with an anxiety disorder to also suffer from depression or vice versa.

Almost half of the people diagnosed with depression are also diagnosed with anxiety disorder.

High levels of emotional exhaustion that come from workplace anxiety can directly lead to lower job performance, can impede learning, which often leads to lower academic achievement and performance.

65% of North Americans take prescription medications daily, 43% take mood-altering prescriptions regularly.

Symptoms of anxiety:

  1. Stomach Pain, indigestion, gas and bloating, abdominal cramps and pain, and irritable bowel syndrome.
  2. Difficulty breathing, hyperventilation, asthma attacks, coughing fits holding your breath.
  3. Continuous negative thoughts including anticipating danger and catastrophe around every corner, frequent feelings of inadequacy or impending failure, or believing that something bad will happen if certain things aren’t done a certain way.
  4. Feelings of worry often connected to being edgy, physical trembling or shaking.
  5. Heart and chest pain
  6. Low appetite or binge eating
  7. Insomnia
  8. Feeling Detached from the world

After we discuss each cause, we’ll share our best-known protocol to help you get a handle on your health and feel confident with a new direction and the hope of gaining control over your life.

Amy McKenzie, Ph.D., Research Scientist says her team is reversing type 2 diabetes.

Type 2 Diabetes affects 30 million Americans and costs $327 billion annually. It has been, until now, considered chronic and progressive.

Heart disease affects 1 in 3 adults and costs nearly $400 billion annually.

Virta Health’s website is here: https://www.virtahealth.com

We begin the show by learning some stats on how many American's have Type 2 Diabetes in the US today compared to 20 yrs. ago. And learning the difference between Type 1 Diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes

I also get into some real, but sticky points.

How many people with Type 2 want to be "healed"?

Discussing people who "need" medication for a condition and the mentality of relying on meds giving a false belief of being healthy now that symptoms are managed.  

Virta Health claims to reverse Type 2 Diabetes. Is this simply through lifestyle change?

Some more questions I ask Dr. McKenzie:

How is Virta treatment different than others?

What is the success rate?

What emotional assistance do you give

Part of the Virta Treatment involves a ketogenic diet.

Is Intermittent fasting considered?

We also discuss their new published May 2018 peer-reviewed research in Cardiovascular Diabetology on the cardiovascular benefits of the Virta Treatment.

Virta Health claims to be the first company with a clinically-proven treatment to safely and sustainably reverse Type 2 Diabetes and other chronic metabolic diseases without the use of medications or surgery.

Some of the best parts of summer are edible, however indulging in the season’s most popular foods at picnics, barbecues and on boardwalks can lead to double trouble when it comes to your health because of certain summer food intolerances.
 
 
She says this is why reactions to food sensitivities increase during this season and what causes these reactions resulting in unwanted flare-ups that are real summer spoilers – and what nutritional steps you can take to avoid a reaction.  PLUS what foods you can substitute that will make summer more edible and enjoyable. 
 
 
Felicia, know as America's Health & Wellness ExpertTM is a registered dietitian nutritionist, exercise physiologist and expert consultant in disease prevention. She is the author of, “Living Skinny in Fat GenesTM: The Healthy Way to Lose Weight and Feel Great” 

 

“Atmosphere and social pressure can play a huge role in what we choose to eat, and during the summer a lot of people will let down their guard when it comes to food,

Fact or Fiction?

  • 1. Lactose intolerance is the most common food intolerance.

  • 2. Food intolerance is more common in women than in men.

  • 3. In the U.S., 12 percent of the population suffers from migraines, and food triggers are involved in about half the cases.

  • 4. Non-immune food intolerances may result from poor digestibility due to low enzyme levels.

  • 5. Physical reactions to certain foods are common,

    but most are caused by a food intolerance rather than a food allergy.

  • 6.  If you have a food intolerance, you may be able to eat small amounts of the offending food without trouble. You may also be able to prevent a reaction using supplementation.

Nearly half of all adults (150 Million) in the United States have high blood pressure, according to the most recent statistics from the American Heart Association.

Could you benefit by defying your doctors advice to use meds for decreasing high blood pressure and rely on other proven methods?

Dr. Steven Helschien (www.zona.com) is the founder of Level 1 Diagnostics and Level 1 Therapeutics. He retired in 2000 to pursue his passion of creating new paradigms for preventative cardiology and integrative psychiatry. Dr. Helschien is considered a leading authority on heart rate variability, pulse wave velocity and carotid ultrasonography. He is also an expert on the use of neurofeedback and brain training. He has authored booklets on "Stress and Anxiety," "Blood Pressure," "Yoga," "Meditation," "Sleep", "Heart Health", and "Diabetes," and created a workbook,  "Staying on Track.” His monthly articles can be found in the Townsend Letter for Doctors.

While adequate treatment is crucial and there are many approaches, from medication to lifestyle changes, controlling high blood pressure can be difficult.

Dr. Steven Helschien says non-med alternatives, such as exercise and diet, often can be effective remedies, and he thinks too many patients are using prescriptions when they could improve their blood pressure without medications and their side effects.

“Often in our society there’s a tendency to throw meds at a problem. That happens a lot with patients afflicted with high blood pressure. Some studies have shown a good number of people are over-treated."

Helschien discusses the non-prescription alternatives to treating high blood pressure and how the malady, if left unattended, can lead to many worsening health problems.

These are some questions I ask the doc:

Blood pressure issues used to be an older person issue. Is that still true? 

What are some signs of high blood pressure will see/feel without visiting a doc's office

What are the challenges doctors often face when a patient needs attention for their blood pressure?

What do you believe MD’s need to do to inform their patients?

What are the most effective ways to reduce high blood pressure without using medications?

What are the most common side effects of blood pressure meds?

Do you have an invincible it-can't-happen-to-me-mindset? Money, age and gender don't preclude us from having any of the 5 silent killers that have no symptoms. 

Christine Horner, M.D., FACS, is a nationally known surgeon, author and professional speaker and holds two board certifications: the National Board of Surgery and the National Board of Plastic Surgery. Dr. Horner was recognized as a leader in her field shortly after starting her plastic and reconstructive surgery practice because she successfully ran a national campaign to pass laws requiring insurance companies to pay for breast reconstruction following mastectomy. Her five-year crusade with the Breast Reconstruction Advocacy Project (BRA Project) led to the passage of an unprecedented federal law that was signed by President Bill Clinton in 1998, requiring insurance companies to pay for this specific surgical procedure. Horner is the award-winning author of, “Waking The Warrior Goddess: Dr. Christine Horner's Program to Protect Against and Fight Breast Cancer,” (3rd Edition) and her award-winning book, “Radiant Health, Ageless Beauty,” (Elgea Publishing, 2016).

Some diseases can really creep up on you, the scariest of which have no symptoms 

Here are the 5 silent killers Dr Horner discusses:

1: High Blood Pressure Nearly half the population
is oblivious to the fact that they have high blood pressure
according to a study published in JAMA. 

2. Sleep Apnea:

Here’s a startling statistic: sleep apnea not a fat guy issue. 

It affects up to half of all women between the ages of 20-70. 

Symptoms include morning headaches, mood disturbances and low-lying fatigue and have

been linked to heart disease and Type 2 diabetes. According to the Mayo Clinic, only

10 percent of sleep apnea sufferers are diagnosed and treated.


3. HPV 
79 million Americans have human papillomavirus or HPV, the most common sexually transmitted disease in the United States, but few people know they have it, which might explain why another 14 million people will get infected each year. Not only are there no symptoms, there is no simple test for HPV and the only people who typically get screened are women during a pap

The good news is, your body can rid itself of HPV if the immune system is strong.

4. Pancreatic Cancer. 

A study found that drinking two or more colas a week almost doubles a person’s risk of developing pancreatic cancerConsidered one of the deadliest forms of cancer, pancreatic cancer may not surface with symptoms of jaundice, upper abdominal pain and rapid weight loss until it’s in its advanced stages. More than 55,000 Americans will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer this year and of those more than 44,000 will die.

5. Diabetes Alarmingly, this disease can go undiagnosed for quite some time, which may explain why 7.2 million Americans are undiagnosed and unaware they have diabetes. You may think excessive thirst, frequent urination and irritability are all par for the course of a hectic lifestyle but these little warning signs may be putting you in the group of 30.3 million Americans diagnosed with diabetes

Pain is a massive problem that affects 125 million Americans who are spending close to $300 billion on pills, pot, procedures and natural remedies to find relief. 

Did you know there are diet and lifestyle changes as well as natural remedies that can help pain sufferers get relief from some of the three most common pain complaints, reducing reliance on heavy sedative medication that has potential side effects?

What's odd, yet positive about this show is how some Md's in the medical community are doing their research and stepping out from the narrow-minded ways they were taught in medical school.

What's really interesting is the information about certain nutrients and supplements mentioned in this show is not new information. It's at least 30 yrs old. 

So why bother with this show? The flexibility of some doctors who are open-minded to something other than writing a prescription.

There are still too many doctors who dismiss the power of nutrients whether they come in food or supplement form. 

Having MD's on the show discussing these benefits as if it were their idea is both fun as well as beneficial for other MD's who may be stuck in their old, outdated one way of looking at an issue focus.

It also opens discussion for MD's who lose a fighting battle with insurance company's which keeps the doctor on the same old path just so they can make a living.

This is one of the reasons doctors are doing their research and adopting more natural methods the nutrition community has known to be beneficial for decades.

  • Muscle pain: Tension, stress, overuse and minor injuries are the most common causes of muscle pain. A JAMA study reported the diseases with the largest number of years lived with disability in 2010 were low back pain and other musculoskeletal disorders including neck pain.
  • Joint pain: Damage to the joints from disease or injury can cause pain in the form of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, bursitis, gout, sprains, strains and other injuries. Age and injuries can increase your risk of joint pain.
  • Head pain: This pain can come in the form of migraines, tension-type and cluster headaches. Causes of headaches include fatigue, sleep deprivation, stress, side effects of medications, viral infections, head injury, common colds, and dental or sinus issues.
  1. Who is to blame for the pain problem in America? Is it the fault of doctors, patients or both?
  2. What is contributing to the misuse of pain medications in America?
  3. How can common muscle pain problems be addressed through diet, natural remedies and lifestyle changes?
  4. What are some herbs and oils that can be used to relieve head pain?
  5. What sort of questions should you ask your doctor before accepting a prescription for a painkiller?

​Dr. Webster and I discuss how chiropractic is going beyond improving the function of individual joints.
 
A growing body of evidence indicates that injury, pain, and inflammation from back pain not only affect the individual joints involved or a region of the spine but also has a significant impact on the function and structure of both the sensory and motor brain function.
 
How can the pain/brain connection affect​ ​ memory, language skills, cognitive function, decision-making, and appraisal, in chronic back pain patients?
 
Compelling new evidence demonstrates reduced gray matter ​(​fewer brain cells​) ​in numerous parts of the brain in people with chronic back pain. 
 
How can chiropractic manipulation and motor-skill training affect someone long-term?
 
​What happens when someone delays needed surgery or physical therapy and push​es​ through chronic pain?
 
​Episodes of acute pain with injury may induce plastic changes in the sensorimotor system including dysfunctional motor control of spinal joint segments​.
 
Are there any lasting effects after the symptom of pain is gone?
 
In 2010​ it was ​found that a single session of spinal manipulation applied to dysfunctional cervical joints resulted in improved sensory​ ​responses in subjects with recurring neck pain and stiffness.​ 
 
Is there evidence that these therapies can be helpful with other conditions associated with brain health?
 
While some of this info can be a little technical, Dr. Webster does a great job of breaking it out.

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/).

​Millennials (18-33) are the most stressed age group with Gen Xers (34-47) following closely behind (http://www.apa.org/news/press/releases/stress/2012/generations.aspx).

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/).


Anxiety disorders are the most common mental disorder in the U.S. affecting 18.1% of the population every year (https://adaa.org/about-adaa/press-room/facts-statistics).

All too often we take advantage of our health. From lack of self respect by allowing ourselves to gain much excess fat to preventable diseases such as Type 2 diabetes, to the belief we're an Avenger and invincible when it comes to our skin and the sun. 
 
That's until we're unhappy with how we look, or the need for skin cancer to be removed or dealt with in a more invasive manner.
 
Dr David Hensley is a dermatologist shared information about how to protect, detect and correct sun damage and the proper use of fillers for reducing aging look we may not be happy with. 
 
Other topics discussed:
  • Sun damage: wrinkles, freckling, age spots, thinning/atrophy, bruising/susceptibility to injury/poor healing
  • Protection: good and bad sunscreen ingredients
  • Correction of sun damage:-mild/early: topical retinoids, “chemical” peels, laser-moderate/severe- laser/peels
  • There is a grey market for injectables esp. Botox. These products are expensive which puts pressure on markets to find cheaper avenues. If there a concern, ask to see the Botox bottle. Most common grey market Botox will not be in English!
 
If you receive botox, laser treatments or any other treatment offered in a derm's office, Dr. Hensley educates us about proper dilution of product, injecting properly to prevent injury and failed outcomes. He speaks more in-depth  to help you make an educated decision about where to spend your hard earned dollars while preventing medical mishaps.

2.     41.6% of adults in the US are vitamin D deficient (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21310306).
 
3.     Only 1 in 10 Americans – whether children or adults – are getting sufficient vitamin D.
 
4.     Vitamin D interacts with over 30 different tissues in the body and affects 1,000-3,000 of your 30,000 genes.
 
5.     When selecting your vitamin D supplement, choose the D3 form – it’s 87% more effective than the D2 version.
 
6.     Omega-3 deficiency causes up to 96,000 preventable U.S. deaths per year, making it the 6th leading cause of death according to Harvard researchers.
 
7.     The ideal ratio between omega-6 and omega-3 is 1:1, but unfortunately, omega-6 fats predominate the American diet by a 20:1 ratio.
 
8.     People who supplemented with the omega-3 supplements EPA and DHA daily for 3.5 years had a 25% lower risk of heart attack and a 45% lower risk of sudden death.
 
Did you know we can test our own omega-3 & Vit D levels from home? 
 
Order an omega-3 and vitamin D test kit at:
 
Karen Howard, executive director of Organic & Natural Health Association, says there are so many variables with clinical trials on nutrients that it’s important to do field studies to collect as much data as possible.  She says by measuring omega-3, DHA and EPA levels along with vitamin D serum levels, her national nonprofit organization, along with research partner GrassrootsHealth, will help to pinpoint exactly what’s working and what combinations of these nutrients are needed for improved outcomes for a variety of health conditions, which could shed more light on what levels of vitamins and supplements you actually need.  
 
Howard will tell your audience an easy way to test your omega-3 levels and vitamin D levels from home with a self-test kit, and how to participate in a nutrient study that already has 10,000 Americans signed up.  Howard can also discuss with your audience FDA regulation over vitamins and supplements; how they are regulated and what consumers should look for before making purchases.

In this episode, Dr Webster discusses the evidence  against sugar substitutes such as Splenda usage.

 
Using Splenda for 12-wk  has indicated many adverse effects

1. Reduced beneficial gut bacteria 
2. Increase fecal pH (High pH attracts disease)
3. Limit bioavailability of orally drugs. 
This means you won’t absorb your meds, in turn minimize their effectiveness and intended benefit. 

This often leads to taking high doses of meds leading to more health issues.
Preventing absorption also effects supplement use and lack of benefits.

From link above: Splenda kills good gut bacteria

A PubMed review of sucralose:

 
Although early studies asserted that sucralose passes through the GIT (gastrointestinal Tract unchanged, subsequent analysis suggested that some of the ingested sweetener is metabolized in the GIT. The identity and safety profile of these putative sucralose metabolites are not known at this time. 
 
Sucralose and one of its hydrolysis products were found to be mutagenic at elevated concentrations in several testing methods.
 
Cooking with sucralose at high temperatures was reported to generate chloropropanols, a potentially toxic class of compounds. – rat studies show kidney disease and lower spermicide count and sperm survival rate at doses often consumed and thought to be “safe” for humans.
 
Both human and rodent studies demonstrated that sucralose may alter glucose, insulin, and glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) levels.

Dr. Tim Church has been a frequent guest on my show these past twenty years. He helps people understand the latest studies and suggests not making sudden changes to your life based on one study. 

Many scientists, PhD’s are paid or influenced to create an angle for attention. Yes this means even some of the most notable publications you read are filled with misinformation.

Dr Church’s credentials are sure to impress so I wanted to share them with you before sharing the topics of today’s show. 

Dr. Church has Doctor of Medicine (M.D.), Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) and Masters of Public Health (M.P.H.) degrees from Tulane University.Tim Church, M.D., M.P.H., Ph.D. – Medical Director

As a distinguished researcher and specialist in public health and general preventive medicine, Dr. Timothy Church ranks among the country’s most accomplished medical professionals, earning numerous distinctions as a physician, scientist, professor, patent holder, author and civil servant. His passion for helping people achieve better health has been the driving force behind his life’s work, which has included positions such as Vice President of Medical and Laboratory Research at Texas’ famed Cooper Institute and director of the Laboratory of Preventive Medicine at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center (part of the Louisiana State University system) in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Dr. Church served as the Chairman of the Physical Activity Committee of the Council on Nutrition, Physical Activity and Metabolism at the American Heart Association, was a consultant in the writing of the Federal Physical Activity Guidelines Advisory Report 2008 and was invited to speak before the United States Congress’ Committee on Government Reform on the topic of diet, physical activity and dietary supplements. Dr. Church frequently contributes to the national news media as an expert on the subjects of exercise, weight and preventive medicine, and has been interviewed by CNN, NBC’s Today Show, Time Magazine, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and New York Times

Here are the topics we discuss on today’s show:

  1. Multi vitamins versus supplements. Some vitamins are a complete waste of money & potential health risk

Pay attention to the words we use. Vitamins are not all supplements. They are limited to a multi and others such as anti oxidants most believed were healthy for them to prevent risk of disease. Supplements such as B complex, magnesium, zinc and many more are vital to optimal health, especially when there is deficiency due to stress. Stress comes in the form  of mental concerns as well as poor lifestyle. This would

It's ​March and most people who adopted a new year resolution are beginning to ​fall off the wagon due to lack of results, the speed at which the results came and a mammalian brain that's ​constantly on the lookout for danger, ​drama, ​failure, and challenges.

​If you choose to disregard this show, then you're either wealthy, in perfect health and or have the perfect marriage, or you have embraced being Uncomfortably Comfortable ​

I will share 6 reasons why our brain is constantly looking for failure and danger, then give tangible ideas to begin implementing to change the way your brain thinks to minimized being faced with a challenge in which you may have drawn toward you with a negative mindset.

Visit www.potentiallyYou.net  begin with buying my book Potentially You. 

Toward the end of the book, I mention a tool I have that only a few people in America have that will completely neutralize the emotions keeping you from being the parent, spouse, successful business person​ and the healthy ​person you wish to be and​ ​enjoy the emotional stability and success you deserve.

A high-carb diet and high blood sugar are associated with cognitive decline.
 
What are ketones?
 
What is ketosis and is it dangerous? (Compare to keto-acidosis)
Can all cells, tissues, and organs in the body potentially use ketones and which benefit the most from ketones.
 
Dr. Satchin Panda microbiologist studies the circadian rhythms​ of the body. Every cell in the body follows this Circadian Rhythm which governs when a cell is most metabolically active, when hormones are produced and when repairs and processes are active.​​​ Our internal clock tells us when it’s time to wake, when to rest and when to begin eating​ and when to wind down. 
 
To learn more about Dr. Panda’s studies:
 
 

A few years ago Dr. Panda​ began looking at how food affects our clocks in each organ. In our liver, there are 3000-5000 genes that turn on or off at different parts of the day. 

​One experiment his team gave food to mice during the day, (mice eat at night) to see if it would affect gene expression.
 
The first exposure to light and bite of food determines how our body clock works.
 
Dr. Panda coined the phrase TRF Time-Restricted Feeding which he defines as eating during an 8-12 hr period during light exposure only. 
This produced fat loss, increased lean muscle mass, decreased inflammation, improved heart function, ketone production and aerobic endurance.
 
Every organ in our body has an internal clock and it tells each organ when to be at peak performance and when to rest. 
 
W​hat many people may not know is that 10-15% of our genome is tied to our circadian rhythm and 40-50% of those genes are tied to metabolism.​
 
Dr. Panda went on to give an example of how street lights have to be timed just right to prevent traffic accidents. Not unlike the clock in our liver and how it distributes food and the process, it goes through. Not everything happens at once such as breaking down protein, making glucose etc. 
 
Artificial sweeteners, sugar and other things that cause a disruption in this process lead to metabolic issues attracting disease. Diabetes, heart disease cancer etc. 
 
We’re forcing our organs to work at times they are winding down, in turn, trying to force them to work at their optimal levels which cause traffic jams, and accidents using his traffic light metaphor about attracting disease.
 
They also found, and cannot explain people will gain muscle mass just by using this TRF. Which completely negates the thought of having to eat every 2-3 hrs. 
 
He did say the quality of calories does matter but if someone had to choose one first to then incorporate the other, TRF during 8-12 hours daylight would be that choice. 
 
Their findings show most people eat over a 15 hour period

In the beginning of 2018 I had an idea for a show to discuss the importance of adding or removing certain supplements due to the demands, change of each season and desires we have within those seasons that focus on our health goals and concerns.
 
People who supplement, do so with the same routine day in & day out without regard to the effect each season has on our health. 
Demands on our health change as seasons change.
 
Which sups do you need more or less of in each season? 
 
 
Winter concerns and interests: Sugar cravings, Fat loss, Stress, fFu, Snergy, Painful Joints, 

Asthma, Contracting a cold, Dry air asthma attacks, Heart Attacks

Spring concerns and interests: Allergies- yard work, bicycle riding and all outdoor activity. Toxicity from winter food and in home chemicals not being released due to lack of open windows/freshair

 
Summer concerns and interests: Sunburn, Women yeast infections, Athletes foot, Acne, Food poison, Dehydration

STRESS HORMONES

AND THEIR EFFECT ON YOUR HEALTH AND PEAK PERFORMANCE

What you need to know about cortisol and your health.

Cortisol is a hormone released during stress. It is involved with many body functions such as controlling blood sugar levels, blood pressure, regulating metabolism and regulating energy by selecting the right amount of nutrients for our body. When it’s released it increases heart rate, blood pressure, blood glucose, respiration and muscle tension. It’s also the hormone responsible for the “fight-or-flight” response to stress.

Too much or too little cortisol caused by excess stress can lead to several health issues.

Research shows 90 percent of doctors visits are related to stress.

While this hormone  gets negative attention, we discuss the role and benefits of cortisol in addition to chronic release of high cortisol on health and peak performance.

A food once touted dangerous by MDs, always loved by nutritionists &-bodybuilders directly affects brain health

What is the one well-balanced, protein absorbed faster & more efficiently than other protein? 

Dr. Tia Rains is the Executive Director at the Egg Nutrition Center. 

www.eggnutritioncenter.org  

In this episode Dr Rains discussed the new research and importance of consuming eggs for babies and adults alike. 

First we discuss the latest research on babies and brain health, then dismiss the negative news about cholesterol and eggs once thought to harm people with high cholesterol.

January 2018 Dr. Marie Caudill and colleagues at Cornell University published yet more evidence that infants exposed to higher levels of maternal choline (930 mg/day) during the third trimester have improved information processing speed during the first year of life, an indicator of cognition and intelligence.

The choline content, in particular, is proving to be much more important for brain function than once thought. 

Eggs are the richest source of choline except for beef liver (which isn’t exactly as suitable for babies and toddlers…)

Eggs are also the most bioavailable source of protein on the planet (ie. More protein per bite, less filler)

Eggs are also dense in iodine and zinc

Eggs include other important brain nutrients like polyunsaturated fatty acids, folic acid, and are one of the most bioavailable source of protein on the planet. That means that growing bodies digest and absorb the protein from eggs faster and more efficiently than other protein sources.
