5 “Healthy” Foods That Aren’t
January 15, 2014 by Erin Ter Beest

In a world of competing health claims, it’s hard to know what foods are really nourishing and health-promoting. Sometimes it’s even hard to tell whether or not something is really food or just a “food-like substance!” While the occasional #junk food isn’t going to kill you (and stressing out about completely avoiding it might actually do more damage than the occasional junk food itself), there are many “health” foods that have made their way into our diets regularly that are doing serious damage to ... ..more

Julie Matthews, Author Nourishing Hope: Benefits range dramatically from child to child. Many parents report that their children make wonderful gains in language when starting a special diet, such as gluten-free casein-free – it may be an increase in words, speaking in sentences, or back and forth conversation. Some children make gains in behavior, a reduction in irritability or tantrums, or less hyperactivity. Other children have improvements in the quality of life, relief of digestive upset, fewer colds and infections, and are happier and healthier. While benefits differ, my experience as a Certified Nutrition Consultant specializing in autism for the past ... ..more

Folic ACID will get turned into Dihydrofolate and will be all gone... except for any more you may eat due to eating many fortified cereals and bread products.

A little Folic ACID will not be a problem. The problems occur when the amount of Folic ACID outweighs the availability of L-Methyl Folate regarding the BRAIN since Folic ACID blocks up the #L-Methyl Folate [ #5-MTHF ] #Folate Receptor Alpha receptors and prevents the real thing [5-MTHF] from getting into the brain.

The rest of the body doesn't suffer from too much #Folic ACID....only the brain.

The Vitamin-D controversy…
by ADMIN on APRIL 7, 2013

As anyone who has read my regular posts online, you have learned that I am one of few wellness guys who isn’t ga-ga over Vitamin-D. It’s not the 1st time that I’ve cut against the grain in my career, but I want to offer an explanation that will hopefully explain my counter-cultural rationale…

What is Sympathetic Dominance

  4 years, 9 months ago

#Sympathetic Nervous System “Fight or flight” or “Type A’s”
There are 3 basic #SNS Dominant subtypes: Basic, Extreme, & Inefficient SNS Dominant types. The following is a summary of the average SNS Dominant types.
Personality traits vary widely in this group depending on whether they are more analytical vs. emotional. For instance, more emotionally based SNS Dominants are likely to be more volatile and “nervous” whereas the more analytical type does not. 
 


The sympathetic nervous system (SNS) activates the glands and organs that defend the body against attack, whether it is running from a saber toothed tiger or you are struggling with a dreadful job and difficult boss. It is called the fight or flight system and once activated, it directs more blood to the muscles, #adrenals and the brain yet away from the digestive organs and skin. The adrenals pump out #epinephrine while the sympathetic nerve endings throughout the body release #norepinephrine . This system is #catabolic , which simply means that energy is used to prepare for defense, rather than for nourishment, healing, or waste removal. #Sympathetic activity triggers the thyroid and adrenal glands to provide extra energy for fighting or running away. The heart rate and blood pressure also increase, just as the blood flow to the digestive system and kidneys decreases. This process is largely due to the intensified release of stimulating chemicals, known as #neurotransmitters #epinephrine and #norepinephrine . While this activity is critical for survival, those who have chronic activation of the SNS often develop #anxiety, #insomnia , heart racing or disease (heart failure), and adrenal #fatigue . They also have “goose bumps” more frequently than other types and tend to do best in warmer weather. 
 
A Sympathetic Dominant Nervous System often leads to significant gastro-intestinal issues due to the poor #digestion of meats and fats. These folks often feel as though food "sits like a rock in my gut". Due to the rising levels of Norepinephrine (the body’s flight or fight neurotransmitter), digestion shuts down to reserve precious resources for survival. Chronic activation can lead many to feel agitated, jittery, wired, & restless as well as prone to sleep disturbances and anxiety. They may also experience the vicious cycle of the “Wired but tired” sensation when eating an inappropriate diet or taking the wrong supplements, which in their case, is filled with sweets and other junk foods or heavy proteins. When a dysfunctional sympathetic nervous system reigns supreme, one may experience anxiety, stress, or feelings of panic, which should normally only occur in response to a perceived threat. Subsequently, they may overreact to even the mildest of daily troubles. 



These individuals often start out thin and active yet poor diets—usually filled with sweets and starchy carbs often lead to later weight gain. When busy or stressed, they frequently forget to eat regularly, if at all. They are often pale, do not tolerate cold weather and tend to have colder hands & feet. Such individuals are often impatient and easily frustrated or angered, yet it appears to quickly pass. They often make for volatile partners and bosses, in that they frequently explode; yet minutes later have already moved on. They are also frequently viewed as “intense,” “aloof,” or “bold,” and have a tendency of “sticking their foot in their mouths” by being too aggressive or forward. Nevertheless, #genetic & environmental factors influence this area considerably.


They are also very driven, ambitious, and motivated people who may excel in academics or in high energy vocations that require multi tasking and social interaction. Many also enjoy a stimulating debate or confrontation (attorneys, politicians, generals). When healthy ... ..more

Marcia McPhail: Vit D mobilizes calcium through the intestines to the bloodstream. That's only half the destination! Your body needs vit K to move the calcium from the blood to the bones and teeth. There are two forms of vit K-- k1 is found in all green leafy vegetables and is recirculated, so no need to worry about that! You need to supplement with K2, of which there are two forms; mk4 found in grassfed beef; and mk7 found in natto. Neither forms of K2 are recirculated, so its common to be deficient. You can find liquid D3 and ... ..more

What does this process look like when it’s broken? After reading the following, you will be able to envision the implications of defects or mutations. The following is an example of the health problems that might occur.
1. Poor nerve function leads to muscle twitching, numbness, and weakness yet misfires can cause seizures, fatigue, memory loss, word groping, clumsiness (with falls & injuries), and visual or hearing loss in those with MS, CFS/ME, or Autism Spectrum Disorders.

2. Depending on the neuro-talker, imbalances often lead to a variety of disorders including: depression, anxiety, panic attacks, irritability, mood swings, OCD ... ..more

Any thoughts on MTHFR and Lithium ?

  4 years, 9 months ago

#MTHFR #Lithium
Lithium has been known for years to be useful for #bipolar disorder. Despite all that is known about lithium and its impact on biochemical pathways, no one has defined the mechanism by which lithium has its impact on bipolar disorder. It is likely to be an effect on multiple pathways. There are a number of enzymes in the body that are known to be impacted and inhibited by lithium.

Lithium comes together with methylation at #COMT, the enzyme catechol-o-methyl-transferase. COMT breaks down #dopamine and #norepinephrine. Dopamine is a critical #neurotransmitter for motivation, focus and attention, among other functions ... ..more
