Magnesium and Weight Loss

Jun 6th 2023

Magnesium and Weight Loss

Widespread magnesium deficiency has been implicated in a host of chronic diseases, including obesity. How would healthy levels of magnesium in our cells help us to attain and maintain a healthy weight, and how does magnesium deficiency sabotage those goals? Fatigue. The number one complaint patients bring to doctors is “feeling tired.” Being unable to lose weight probably ranks a close second.  The two concerns are related: It’s hard to eat less and exercise more when you’re already feeling tired all the time. Fatigue is one of the first signs of magnesium deficiency. Magnesium and the B vitamins are our main energy nutrients, involved in almost every step of energy creation in the cells’ energy factories, the mitochondria. Nutrient Deficiency. Magnesium and the B's activate enzymes that control digestion, absorption and utilization of all three macronutrients—fats, proteins, and carbohydrates—making the vitamins and minerals they contain available for our bodies to use.…

No Energy? Maybe It’s Your Liver!

No Energy? Maybe It’s Your Liver!

The most common complaint bringing patients to doctors’ offices these days is low energy.  Most often, if you go in complaining of fatigue, after a battery of tests, you will be told there’s nothing wrong with you. Well, although it may not show up in their tests, there is something wrong! Low energy means not only that you don’t have the energy to do what you want to do; it means your body doesn’t have the energy to do what it needs to do to keep you healthy. In fact, the amount of energy your body can make may be the single most important measurement of your health. It’s important to get to the bottom of what’s going on.  (A doctor who specializes in functional medicine may find answers that conventional doctors don’t.) One of the most common reasons for low energy today is a sluggish liver. The liver is the largest and most hard-working gland in your body, performing over 500 essential functions, and when it isn’t up to par, every other system in your body suffers as a…

Can Coconut Oil Eradicate Superbugs?

Can Coconut Oil Eradicate Superbugs?

Dr. Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organization, has a grim prognosis for our future: “Antimicrobial resistance is on the rise . . . [As antibiotics lose their effectiveness a] post-antibiotic era means, in effect, an end to modern medicine as we know it. Things as common as strep throat or a child’s scratched knee could once again kill. Some sophisticated interventions, like hip replacements, organ transplants, cancer chemotherapy, and care of preterm infants, would become far more difficult or even too dangerous to undertake.”Well, we aren’t as gloomy about a post-antibiotic era. For all the good they’ve done, antibiotics as we’ve known them have done a whole lot of damage to almost everyone’s intestinal probiotic population, harming immunity and paving the way for all kinds of disease. We need different kinds of antibiotics that don’t indiscriminately kill good and helpful microbes along with the bad, and that the bad bugs won’t build resistance to. Fortunately,…

Healthy Coconut Oil is Being Reintroduced

Healthy Coconut Oil is Being Reintroduced

Unjustly maligned for decades, coconut oil is reemerging as a miracle fat that boosts energy, burns fat, is antibiotic, and helps with thyroid problems. In the past, poorly done, misleading studies were used to discredit the saturated fats in coconut oil in order to displace it in our diet with soybean oil. Now that soybean oil has caused an epidemic of health problems, healthy coconut oil is being reintroduced. Coconut oil has been safely used for thousands of years. Natives in tropical climates who consume lots of coconut oil don’t suffer from the heart disease, cancer, colon problems, and other health challenges that we do. Because it is highly saturated, coconut oil is very stable, stores well, and is suitable for cooking. But don’t let the saturation bother you. These saturated fats are different. The medium-chain fatty acids in coconut oil are easy to absorb, digest, transport, and metabolize in the body. Unlike other saturated fats, the medium-chain fatty acids in coco…

The Meal Replacement Trend

The Meal Replacement Trend

Why everyone’s hopping on the meal replacement bandwagon? Being overly busy has become our new reality. And when it comes to making the healthy meals and snacks that are so important for our health, there never seen to be enough hours in the day. We can resort to restaurant meals and take-out, but these are expensive and not necessarily healthy. Frozen dinners and cheap fast food chains have filled the gap since the 1950s, but though they may satisfy our stomachs and provide calories, these chemical-laden meals lack nutrition and have been a disaster for our national health—major contributors to obesity and chronic disease. What we need are healthy, good-tasting convenience foods that can be used to make quick, easy meals and snacks at a reasonable price. In recent years, a flock of meal replacement (MR) products have entered the market promising to fill that need. Some target specific issues, like weight loss and fitness support. Others are designed to meet the nee…

Real Olive Oil is Rare

Real Olive Oil is Rare

Worth its weight in goldA good olive oil has fantastic health benefits that make it unique and worth its weight in gold.The story begins in 1957, when scientist Ancel Keys discovered that people living on the island of Crete, in the Mediterranean Sea, had longer lives than any other European population. Even more exciting, their lives were relatively free from chronic diseases like cancer, diabetes, heart disease, age-related cognitive decline, arthritis, and osteoporosis. Keys believed the secret to this robust health lay in what he called "the Mediterranean Diet." A diet high in fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and omega 3 fats from fish, the Mediterranean Diet's centerpiece was pure, unrefined olive oil -- lots of it! In fact 35-40% of the calories in this diet came from healthy olive oil! As valuable as the rest of the Mediterranean diet was, it's since been determined that olive oil accounted for the lion's share of the diet's health benefits.Thousands of studie…

Vitamin E for the Health of Your Heart

Deficiency of vitamin E is more predictive of heart disease and cardiac death than any other single factorOne of the most important nutrients to protect the heart is vitamin E. Yet according to a study published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, only 8% of adult men and 2.4% of adult women in the US met the Estimated Average Requirements (EARs) for alpha-tocopherol intake. Even worse, EARs are about 20% lower than the Recommended Daily Allowances (RDAs).Although many factors are involved in creating heart disease low levels of vitamin E are more predictive of heart disease and cardiac death than any other single factor. Vitamin E inhibits the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, preventing atherosclerosis. When you prevent atherosclerotic plaque, you automatically help to lower blood pressure.In 1910, when heart disease was relatively rare, most people got at least 100 IU a day from freshly milled and baked stone ground whole wheat bread. Yet almost all Americans today…

What Are Superfoods?

We all want to get the most out of our diet and there has been much talk about supposed Superfoods that are more nutritionally dense then other foods. For most, these fruits and vegetables, with a few meats and dairy, are the Holy Grail of foods.People expect them to turn their lives around, but these so-called superfoods aren’t the miracles they appear to be.

Allergies Are Getting Worse

Allergies Are Getting Worse

Climate change is making life tougher for those with allergies, but it’s possible to be allergy-free. A European study published online concluded that allergic reactions to ragweed (the most common cause of what is known as “hay fever”) are in fact getting worse; people who are already sensitive to ragweed are becoming more sensitive, and more and more people who never had problems before are becoming allergic. In fact, in 25-40 years, these researchers estimate the population of Europeans sensitive to ragweed will double, from 33 million to 77 million. Although this study was done in Europe, similar factors, associated with climate change, are at work here in the US. As explained by Lewis Ziska, a plant physiologist at the US Department of Agriculture, warmer temperatures and higher levels of carbon dioxide have encouraged ragweed growth, producing a larger plant and about ten times more ragweed pollen. In addition, it appears that this pollen is a more potent allergen.The Europea…

The Shocking Truth About Allergies

The Shocking Truth About Allergies

It seems like everyone today has allergies of one kind or another, especially beginning this time of year when pollen counts surge. They’re so common we’ve come to accept them as normal and “no big deal.” However, unknown to most people, every allergy attack is a serious attack on health, with long-term consequences. Such reactions chew up precious chemicals and energy that need to be replaced by our already deficient diets. They slow tissue repair so that daily repairs aren’t made, and repair deficits accumulate. Repeated allergy attacks seriously impair health, leading to other diseases, infections, loss of energy, and a shorter lifespan. Here’s what happens in an allergic reaction: When a substance the body falsely identifies as harmful, called an allergen, enters the bloodstream, the immune system creates an antibody to combine with it and block its effects until the body can get rid of it. Combinations of allergens and antibodies are called immune complexes.  Vast numbers…

Your Immune System and Dealing with Viruses

Feb 24th 2023

Your Immune System and Dealing with Viruses

It's not that easy for a virus to take hold in the body. Should it gain entry, it must first attach itself to a cell, then pass through the cell's outer membrane, and, once inside the cell, take over the cell's machinery to replicate itself. The immune system can intervene and abort this hijacking of the cell at different points along the way, and a strong immune system can make short work of an intruding virus, nipping it in the bud before it can do any damage or even produce symptoms. Ultimately, it's the strength of your immune system that determines whether you get sick. If you do get sick, how sick you will get and how soon you will recover is the real question.But we need to help our immune systems to function optimally. While other factors, such as avoiding toxins, eating a good diet and getting appropriate sleep and exercise are also important, there are four crucial supplements that we suggest focusing on at this time: Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, Quercetin Pro and Zinc.
