Stress Busters

Epidemic is not too strong a word to describe the rates of stress we are currently seeing in the United States. More and more Americans live much of their time in a constant state of stress and anxiety, leading to fatigue, depression, burnout, and physical illness. A Gallup poll reports that up to 25 % of the American workforce suffers from excess stress or anxiety. Any change in your environment can cause stress, whether related to work, finances, relationships, or lifestyle. Even positive change can be stressful.

15 % of the U.S. population has had an anxiety disorder, and, according to the National Commission on Sleep Disorders, one in five Americans suffer from stress-related insomnia. The conventional medical treatment for stress, anxiety and insomnia consists of prescription drugs, usually Valium, Xanax, and Klonopin, or other highly addictive “ benzodiazepines.”

Kicking the Diet Soda Habit

Kicking the Diet Soda Habit

Posted on 22 Aug 2013 | Author Stefanie | Comments No comments

We have all heard heard that diet soda isn’t good for us, but we love it and just can’t seem to give it up!

There are many good reasons to stop drinking diet soda. Research from the University of Texas Health Science Center showed that people who consumed more than three diet sodas per day, on average, had almost double the risk of becoming overweight or obese over an eight year period than those who didn’t drink artificially sweetened beverages. A Harvard study found that women who regularly drank two or more diet sodas per day were at increased risk for kidney function decline. Also, the phosphorus in diet soda can deplete the body’s calcium. Aspartame, the artificial sweetener used in many diet sodas, appears to act as an excitotoxin (an agent that binds to nerve cell receptors, overstimulating and damaging cells). I’ve seen patients with jitters, insomnia and disordered thinking recover when they stopped drinking diet soda! Many experts, including me, consider aspartame addictive—so I am not surprised that you are having trouble giving it up.

Healthy Solutions to the Caffeine Trap

Healthy Solutions to the Caffeine Trap

Posted on 22 Aug 2013 | Author Stefanie | Comments No comments

Stimulants have been around the block a few times. Since prehistory, people have used a variety of substances to energize, motivate, and inspire. They may be popular, but stimulants also cause problems. They all work by mimicking or triggering the release of the three primary chemical messengers or neurotransmitters: dopamine, adrenaline, and noradrenaline. That’s what makes us feel motivated and high.

Found in more than one hundred plants throughout the world, caffeine is consumed primarily in beverages. A half-dozen caffeine-containing plants are more widely used than all other herbal materials combined!

Top Tips for Natural Energy a Boost

Top Tips for a Natural Energy Boost

Posted on 22 Aug 2013 | Author Stefanie | Comments No comments

When you understand the connection between energy and nutrition, it will be easier to incorporate these principles into your own life. Remember, too, that the neurotransmitters are produced by you, in your own brain, enabling you to enhance the process and produce your very own natural highs. In addition to feeding your brain with the right nutrients, positive thoughts go a long way toward raising your “happy” brain chemicals. Our mind-power is a remarkable and often untapped resource in our search for happiness.

Here are my top tips for sustained energy and positive feelings, and to deal with that end-of–the-day lag:

Quick Good Mood Food

Posted on 22 Aug 2013 | Author Stefanie | Comments No comments

We often feel down (low energy, depressed, and/or foggy-brained) because of a drop in blood sugar! Since that is the fuel that runs your glucose-hungry brain, you can remedy that feeling with a dose of carbohydrate, the source of glucose. While a doughnut may seems to work , it’s deceptive: you get a quick sugar high, followed by a big dip in blood glucose an hour or so later, and you are even worse off than before! On the other hand, a piece of fruit will provide higher quality glucose (blood sugar), and other phytonutrients (vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants). The fruit’s fiber helps the “sugar hit” to last longer in your system since it releases it’s sugar more gradually than refined sugar (eg a doughnut) or even fruit juice. Any whole grain will do the same.

Which brings us to sandwiches: a tuna, chicken, or cheese on whole grain brain — provides carbohydrate which is converted to glucose which fuels the brain. The combination also helps activate serotonin, a calming feel-good neurotransmitter(chemical messenger); Meat, fish, dairy, soy (tofu) provide protein which is converted into the neurotransmitters, the chemical messengers, and carbs act like a ‘boat’ that carries the tryptophan right to the brain. There it’s converted to serotonin.

Are Cell Phones and Wi-Fi Hazardous to Your Health?

Posted on 06 Aug 2013 | Author Stefanie | Comments No comments

You may not be able to see electropollution, but your body responds to it as though it were a cloud of toxic chemicals.” –Ann Louse Gittleman, author of “Zapped: Why Your Cell Phone Shouldn’t Be Your Alarm Clock and 1,268 Ways to Outsmart the Hazards of Electronic Pollution”

The latest form of environmental pollution — and one that industry, government and wireless consumers don’t like to acknowledge — may be the most devastating threat to health yet: electromagnetic fields (EMFs). A few years ago, I was so concerned that I took a certification course in the detection and harmful effects of EMFs. What it taught me, above all, was how much the scientific community is learning daily, and how little we in the medical profession knew. This area was both frightening and daunting in its scope. I’m grateful that following Devra Davis’s Disconnect: The Truth About Cell Phone Radiation we now have Zapped to educate the public on this serious issue.
