Inflammation: at the core of heart disease

Don’t settle for “the inevitable.”

Knowledge is Power – take charge of your heart health. Any and all of your unwanted symptoms reflect imbalances, injury, your body stuck on trying to heal.

  1. A lifetime of medications to correct high blood pressure, blood sugar imbalances, dysfunctional thyroid and/or adrenal glands… or…
  2. Well-designed, evidence-based guidance that corrects underlying imbalances, calms inflammation, and helps you make important, non-fad, lifestyle changes.

Redness, swelling, pain, fever… traditionally, we define inflammation as the main response the body invokes to deal with injuries or infection. The next stage, healing and repairing, does not start until the “clean-up crew” is done. This communication is a series of orchestrated signals, hormones and other chemicals released from platelets and white blood cells, by your liver and fat cells…

Stably Lose Weight by Eating More: 7 Weight Loss Principles

Weight loss fiction #1: Don’t eat more calories than you burn.

Although cutting calories has been a weight-loss mantra for decades, along with “willpower” and “low fat,” NONE are right!

Why? Skipping meals, or reducing calories actually creates an “energy slump.” In order to conserve the few calories coming in, the body slows its metabolism—it burns fewer calories; you feel tired. Denied true food, your body goes into panic, cravings, and then starvation mode.

In a sense, the body further resets its “fatostat” to conserve energy. Because you’ve probably trained your body to live on carbs, it already cannot access and burn the stored energy (fat); your fatostat is already set on “conserve.”

And when you return to a “correct amount” of calories, your body doesn’t increase its energy burn; instead it stores fat expecting a future “famine.”
