Vitality & Longevity: Secrets to A Thriving Life – PART 1 Beware Fake Foods

Eating addiction health care concept with a group of metal fish hooks using fast food as human bait as fried chicken hamburgers and french fries as a symbol of the dangers of being hooked on sugar fat and salt.

BEWARE = Ultra-processed called “Fake Foods”  foods are causing widespread chronic disease and shortening life span.

LONGEVITY SECRET # 1= Eat a diet that’s nutrient rich without caloric excess.
Ultra-processed foods now account for nearly two-thirds of the calories eaten by humans in the United States. And that diet style is spreading worldwide.

In his book,  Fast Food Genocide, Joel Fuhrman, MD,  cites convincing evidence that the consumption of these foods is also lowering our intelligence, fostering anti-social behavior, and creating mental illness. And that the avalanche of fake food that’s taken over our nation and is spreading across the world is, in fact, feeding learning disabilities, and depression, and aggressive behavior, and even drug addiction, violence, and crime.

Reducing or eliminating our consumption of processed foods can be a challenge for a lot of us. If you were to remove all the foods from the typical supermarket that contain added sugars, you would remove 80 percent of the items in the store. The shelves would be almost empty.

The scientific literature also shows that excess calories shortens the lifespan. But nobody is talking about it even when we know. We know that studies on animals show that when they cut back their calories a little bit and feed them good nutrients, they can live one and a half times longer.

Eat longevity foods!  We  have the ability to essentially wipe out diseases that are so prevalent. It is exciting that we have the potential for protection against these chronic diseases.

We’ve only recently begun to understand the extent of the gut’s role in human health and disease. Among other things, the gut promotes normal gastrointestinal function, provides protection from infection, regulates metabolism and comprises more than 75% of our immune system. An unhealthy gut has been linked to diseases ranging from autism and depression to autoimmune conditions like Hashimoto’s, inflammatory bowel disease and type 1 diabetes. Recent research has shown that the health of the gut in general, also plays a significant role in both obesity and type 2 diabetes. In this presentation, you will learn the power of your second brain and the 4 keys to keeping your gut healthy and vital.

 

 

Your Gut is one of the KEYS to Unlocking Brain Health

Doctor shows information: gut mircobiome

Your Gut is one of the KEYS to Unlocking Brain Health. Most diseases of the brain do not start in the brain. Depression, anxiety, ADD and dementia often have a foundation in the gut. It doesn’t make sense anymore to separate gut and brain. Most of the neurotransmitters are made in the gut and lead to mood stabilization when gut is healthy. The Broken Brain documentary series is being released this week and hosted by a well known functional medicine doctor, Dr Mark Hyman.  I am so excited that this information I have been teaching is becoming more mainstream.

The sad truth around Alzheimer’s and Dementia is that the statistics are grim.

  • 10% of 65-year-olds, 25% of 75-year-olds, and 50% (literally HALF) of all 85-year-olds will develop dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.
  • In severe forms of dementia, people’s memories disappear, they stop talking, and their personalities evaporate.
  •  This is a terrifying, progressive, irreversible process, and dementia does not have any good medical treatments at this time.

The good news, however? This is NOT something you are doomed to experience.

Next week I am holding a webinar all about Your Microbiome: The Missing Link in Achieving Optimal Health

I will be sharing how to optimize your microbiome. The microbiome is the community of trillions of bacteria that live in your digestive tract and elsewhere throughout your body. Collectively weighing about three pounds — the same weight as our brain. When your microbiome is balanced, you have good digestion, clear thinking, balanced mood, and glowing overall health. When your microbiome goes out of balance, however, you risk such symptoms as brain fog, depression, anxiety, bad skin, insomnia, obesity, diabetes, and cancer.
