Alzheimer’s Disease And A Dietary Connection

Alzheimer’s Disease And A Dietary Connection

In 2014 it was estimated that 5.4 million Americans have Alzheimer’s disease, a severe form of dementia, and hundreds of thousands more may suffer from an often misdiagnosed subtype called “hippocampal sparing” Alzheimer’s, according to recent findings.1,2

Anxiety, Is It Holding You Back?

Anxiety, Is It Holding You Back?

Imagine, that you are sitting in a restaurant. At some point during the meal, you notice that your heart is beating faster than normal and that there is a slight pressure in your chest. You feel like you are having difficulty getting a breath in and you also notice that the lights in the restaurant are starting to bother you. You begin to hear every noise around you- a child clinking his silverware against his glass, the waiter writing down an order and conversations becoming increasingly louder. Suddenly, the restaurant feels overwhelming and small. At which point you may feel a tingling sensation down your arms or your stomach cramping. You may be thinking, is this a heart attack? Why can’t I get a deep breath? Why is it so loud in here? What’s happening to me?

What’s hiding behind your blood sugar?

You don’t just wake up one day and become diabetic.  In fact, there are virtually no symptoms that you may experience in early stages or in the pre-diabetes stage.  But then one day your annual blood tests come back and your doctor tells you that your Glucose was too high and your Hemoglobin A1C was over 6.4%.  What does that mean?  Where does that come from?  Why wasn’t I warned?  Now what?

What Is Gluten?

What Is Gluten?

Gluten is a protein which is found in wheat, rye, and barley. Other grains, like oat and spelt, as well as processed foods can contain gluten as well without being labeled as such. The properties of gluten are what hold the bread and cake together. However, these same properties are what interfere with the breakdown and absorption of other nutrients. The undigested gluten can trigger your immune system and affect the intestines, which in turn can cause abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, and other systems that are gastrointestinal related.
