How #stressed are you?

Studies have shown that chronic #stress and #depression can lead to development of #Diabetes mellitus Type 2.

Yes, #diet is important for diabetes prevention but #lifestyle factors like stress reduction are paramount since the #HPA (hypothalamic -pituitary -adrenal) axis, #fat cells on your belly and around your internal organs and the endothelial lining of your arterial wall, all respond adversely to stress. This will ultimately lead to a condition called Insulin resistance and diabetes!

What #stressreduction techniques do you implement in your daily life? #Meditation saves the day for me!

New peer-reviewed study showing what Functional Medicine doctors have been saying for decades!

When will this #toxic exposure for generations of humans end?! Guess how many dentists are giving out samples of these flosses to their patients daily and asking us to floss with them??!! Doctors and patients need to get more educated and vigilant about the long term health effects of this chronic toxin exposure!

“...using #dental #floss containing #PFAS is associated with a higher body burden of these toxic chemicals,"

“Floss, other hygiene products, #nonstick #cookware, fast food wrappers and #microwave #popcorn #bags are among the various products the Centers for Disease Control lists as potentially containing PFAS....

Exposure to certain PFAS chemicals, like perfluorooctanoic acid (#PFOA) and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (#PFOS), has ties to #cancer, #ulcerativecolitis in adults and #thyroid disease in children, among other #health problems, researchers said.”

‘Sobering’ in the least! These are such commonly prescribed drugs for ‘protection of the heart’! Beta- blocker #drugs may increase mortality in #diabetics, especially those who have #heart disease!

“Unfortunately, under the umbrella of cardioprotection...solid evidence gathered in these post-MI trials has been uncritically extrapolated to other indications, such as #hypertension, #diabetes, chronic #kidney disease, and even #cerebrovascular disease. Despite the lack of evidence, the marketing of beta-blockers for such comprehensive cardioprotection proved to be exceedingly successful, and many of these ill-documented beta-blocker indications have persisted in the minds of physicians up to today,"

Beta #amyloid, the hallmark of #Alzheimer's #dementia sneaks into the #brain from the blood stream, this mice study shows. I absolutely believe this as with the Reverse Cognitive Decline (ReCoDe) protocol we follow, we see reversal of early #Alzheimersdisease and Mild Cognitive Impairment (#MCI)when treating systemic root causes in the patient. What happens in the body impacts the brain eventually. Nothing happens in isolation in our body! The causes can be many; they just need to be investigated for, and found in that particular patient. #ReverseCognitiveDecline #MildCognitiveImpairment #Brainhealth #FunctionalMedicine #Get2theroot https://www.sciencenewsforstudents.org/article/alzheimers-protein-can-sneak-brain-blood

Waiting for the day when conventional medicine will recommend #prescription of #fiber & specific #probiotics for high blood pressure! Our friendly #gut #bacteria (#microbiome) produce certain Short Chain Fatty Acids (#SCFAs) which act on receptors on our #kidneys and regulate our #BloodPressure. We regularly measure the levels of these different SCFAs in our patients. As we say in Functional Medicine, gut health impacts the rest of the body! #metabolome #Hypertention #Hearthealth #Healyourgut #get2theroot #FunctionalMedicine #Vascularhealth #guthealth https://www.quantamagazine.org/how-bacteria-help-regulate-blood-pressure-20171130/
