Autoimmune Diseases, Inflammation, and the Leaky Gut Connection

Autoimmune Diseases, Inflammation, and the Leaky Gut Connection | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it

"The immune system is as remarkable as it is complex. It is, after all, our body’s 24/7 watchdog. When the immune system functions normally, it distinguishes external foes from friends—mounting a powerful response to infections while allowing nourishing nutrients to enter our bloodstream. But as counter-intuitive as it might seem, the immune system sometimes turns against its host, sort of like a dog biting the hand that feeds it. When the immune system attacks the very body it’s meant to protect, it causes what doctors call autoimmune diseases."

Psych Meds Put 49 Million Americans at Risk for Cancer

Psych Meds Put 49 Million Americans at Risk for Cancer | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it
With 1 in 5 Americans taking a psychiatric medication, most of whom, long term, we should probably start to learn a bit more about them. In fact, it would have been in the service of true informed consent to have investigated long-term risks before the deluge of these meds seized our population over the past thirty years.

DebbyBruck's curator insight, May 21, 3:57 AM

Cold and Flu symptoms can happen outside of the winter season and can indicate the need for the body to detoxify and regenerate.  This was an excellent video.  Great health requires balance (spiritual, mental, emotional, physical). Attunement with the cycles of nature, our bodies and our earth sets a firm foundation for health. Remember to detoxify, strengthen your immune system, rest, regenerate and strengthen via proper nutrition and time spent with all that you love.... Please LISTEN!

Rhodiola Rosea: Benefiting the Mind, Balancing the Body

Rhodiola Rosea: Benefiting the Mind, Balancing the Body | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it

Discover the incredible benefits of Rhodiola Rosea. Hidden from the West for decades, Rhodiola is one of the world’s most studied and widely used herbs.  

 

In Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, how and where a plant grows often speaks volumes about its inherent medicinal properties. For example, root vegetables like potatoes and radishes are known to be grounding—literallyspeaking theygrow deep in the soil—and energetically they keep our minds focused, practical and present—all earthly qualities. Compare this to many fruits, on the other hand, which grow on trees, high off the ground. They are expansive, light and airy both in their actual physical qualities and the effects they produce in the body and mind. Eating lots of tree fruits can stimulate creativity and imagination and are often favored bymeditatorsand artists."

Buyer beware: The health benefits of almonds are being destroyed

Buyer beware: The health benefits of almonds are being destroyed | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it

(NaturalHealth365) - "Many almonds now are fumigated with a chemical called propylene oxide – something that even the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) admits can lead to cancer.

 

The year 2007 marked a time in the U.S.foodmarket when it became illegal to sell raw almonds. This occurred due to a salmonella outbreak in Canada that was traced back to a California almond grower. A second outbreak led to the mandate for ‘treatment’ of the nuts...  Sadly, the treatment processes and government issued compliance standards drove many smaller almond producers out of business. Now most almonds come from big corporate producers willing to either heat almonds above 200 degrees or fumigate then in a closed chamber with propylene oxide gas. Today, even almonds sold as “organic” are treated using the heating process. Those not labeled as organic are generally getting the fumigation treatment."

We Are All Deficient In Magnesium, Why And What To Do - Live Trading News

We Are All Deficient In Magnesium, Why And What To Do - Live Trading News | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it

"Just about every single person you come into contact with - especially those with a health problem, but even those with only minor complaints - are suffering in some way from this nationwide deficiency. Including you! Anything that makes you tense and tight could potentially be due to magnesium deficiency. If you cannot relax or you cannot stop, think magnesium.

 

Signs of magnesium deficiency are everywhere in the United States, if you know what to look for. Unfortunately, the symptoms are so incredibly common that they constantly slip under the radar. Hardly anyone, especially doctors,noticethat the ailments we suffer from on a daily basis are actually magnesium (Mg) deficiency symptoms… and we’re all paying for it."

Know your egg terminology before heading to the store - Washington Post

Know your egg terminology before heading to the store - Washington Post | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it

' "Take this list to the grocery store."

Eggs have long been a symbol of new beginnings. Now they are celebrating a new chapter of their own, with the Scientific Report of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee’s recommendation to lift the long-held limit on dietary cholesterol. It turns out that for the vast majority of people the cholesterol we eat doesn’t significantly raise our blood cholesterol; rather, saturated fat does. So foods that are relatively low in saturated fat but high in cholesterol, primarily shellfish and eggs, have been freed from the yoke of restriction (pardon the pun, I couldn’t help myself)." '

Protein Activates Wakefulness and Calorie Burning

Protein Activates Wakefulness and Calorie Burning | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it

"Scientists have discovered that protein turns on specialized brain cells that keep you awake, keep your metabolism humming along, and keep you motivated to accomplish goals. In contrast, carbohydrates, without enough protein, do not activate these brain cells, which may result in a tired head and body, and potential weight gain due to sluggish metabolism."

Magnesium: The Important Mineral You’re Probably Not Getting Enough Of | Natural Grocers

Magnesium: The Important Mineral You’re Probably Not Getting Enough Of | Natural Grocers | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it

"Magnesium is a cofactor in more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body, including those involved in protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, blood glucose control, and blood pressure regulation. It is also required for energy production and the synthesis of RNA, DNA, and the important antioxidant glutathione. And magnesium is a key player in maintaining healthy bone.

 

Low magnesium intakes and blood levels have been associated with type-2 diabetes, elevated C-reactive protein (a marker of inflammation), hypertension, sudden cardiac death, osteoporosis, migraine headache, asthma, and colon cancer. As you can see, magnesium is no minor player in whole body health."

Food As Medicine: How Diet Can Help Prevent Cancer

Food As Medicine: How Diet Can Help Prevent Cancer | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it

"Diet in and of itself plays an important role in cancer prevention. Though the association between diet and cancer prevention is still not definitive, recent evidence suggests that diet may modify the risk of many cancers, including gastric, colorectal, breast, prostate, and lung cancers. For example, intake of dietary fiber and high consumption of fruit, vegetables, and fish has been associated with reduced risk of a number of cancers.

 

Some population studies also demonstrate that vegetarianism is associated with lower risk of overall cancer and female-specific cancers. On the other hand, red and processed meat, dairy, alcohol, and saturated fat increase the risk of certain cancers.  Research has found that vegetables and fruits containing high level of carotenoids (carrots, sweet potatoes, spinach, kale, papaya, tomatoes, etc.), cruciferous vegetables (cauliflower, cabbage, cress, bokchoy, broccoli, etc.), and antioxidant-rich foods (blueberries, blackberries, green tea, garlic, etc.) are linked to lower cancer incidence."

How to make the ancient grain amaranth: Recipe for breakfast amaranth with walnuts and honey

"Amaranth is the new quinoa. You heard it here first!  Both amaranth and quinoa are examples of the much-hyped "ancient grains" that are a wonderful nutritional addition to your diet.  The big difference is that quinoa has landed on the "trendy" list, while amaranth has remained in relative obscurity. I was fairly oblivious to its existence until Connor's mom suggested I do a video on it. And I'm so glad she did!

Amaranth is actually technically a seed, not a grain. It packs quite a nutritional punch: it's a complete protein, has all the amino acids, and is a great source of fiber, magnesium, and iron. It's rare that a grain/seed contains all that, so the term "super food" is well earned in this case.  Connor's mom also passed along a recipe suggestion for amaranth, and after I gave it a try I decided I needed to share it with you guys!"

"Ginseng appears to help relieve the fatigue experienced by 90% of people with cancer, according to a study that pitted ginseng capsules against placebo.

 

"People taking ginseng reported feeling less pooped, worn out, and sluggish than those taking placebo,"saysresearcher Debra Barton, PhD, of the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center in Rochester, Minn. Ginseng appeared to be as safe as placebo, at least over the eight-week period, she tells WebMD. Based on the findings, "I would recommend ginseng for patients with cancer-related fatigue," Barton says."

Income Inequality: It’s Also Bad for Your Health

Income Inequality: It’s Also Bad for Your Health | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it
A study found that in places with more unevenness of income, life spans were shorter.

We know that living in a poor community makes you less likely to live a long life. New evidence suggests that living in a community with high income inequality also seems to be bad for your health.

A study from researchers at the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute examined a series of risk factors that help explain the health (or sickness) of counties in the United States. In addition to the suspects you might expect — a high smoking rate, a lot of violent crime — the researchers found that people in unequal communities were more likely to die before the age of 75 than people in more equal communities, even if the average incomes were the same.

Natural allergy relief that is so complete and immediate (and cheap), it may blow you away

Natural allergy relief that is so complete and immediate (and cheap), it may blow you away | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it

 

 

 "My 10-year-old son has increasing problems with seasonal allergies — we brace ourselves as spring comes with its pollen because this kid really reacts. Last year we kept him comfortable with over-the-counter medications, local honey, regular elderflower tea, lavender oil in a nebulizer/diffuser concoction as he sleeps, and a chest rub of lavender and eucalyptus oil in a carrier oil. The remedies helped keep him comfortable but he still needed a small dose of allergy medication, nearly daily. With each year we have added some new tools to the arsenal but it has felt impossible to stay in front of the problem, until now... This season’s addition has been near-miraculous for him: nettle leaf."
