Check out this important discussion! It really sums everything up about starting a healthier life. Be sure to add allergies or intolerance to gluten, dairy, eggs etc. that could cause a problem, I see this in my work all the time.
Hey, listen up! This is important. Are you with me?
I posted this on Facebook a couple of days ago, but it needs to be blogged about as well.
This is the trailer for the new film “Moldy” which is a scary film about all the hundreds of symptoms you can get from a moldy home, workplace, or from food. Everything from brain fog, heart problems, anger, CFS, to unexplained weight gain or weight loss. Don’t miss this one because I’m sure you know people living in moldy houses or ones just feeling bad and don’t know why.
I sometimes think about if the house where I lived in the U.S. had mold? It had a leaky roof and my Lyme disease symptoms always felt much worse when I was home. I was told that it is nearly impossible to get well from Lyme if you are exposed to mold and sometimes it can be the cause.
Do you have children who you care about? Here is one more study which link sugary drinks (or perhaps sugar in general?) to early puberty and increased risk for breast cancer. Watch the video and read more about the study.
Lyme disease is all around us; yet many people and physicians don’t know about it.
Dr. Richard Horowitz is one of the main experts when it comes to Lyme disease. He has been working for 27 years and has been consulted by more than 12,000 people. Here is an great video of Dr. Horowitz informing the Belgium senate about Lyme.
Watch it; send it to physicians, politicians, and friends. Spread it as much as you can to get the word out.
No more birthday celebrations or treats and no more “fika”* for the grown ups.
This is a picture from one of the first sugar free schools in Sweden. No sugar, more physical activity and more play are the new prescriptions for the children in the schools in this area, just outside Stockholm.
* Fika is a very important Swedish word which means coffee break; gathering for e.g. coffee or tea and something to it like cinnamon buns, cookies, or cakes. But, you can “fika” healthy too or just be social.
The research shows strong evidence of links between the over consumption of added sugar and chronic diseases, including Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and liver disease. It also reveals evidence linking sugar to Alzheimer’s disease and cancer, although the team assessed that more research is needed before those links can be considered conclusive.
The average American consumes nearly three times the recommended amount of added sugar every day, which is taking a tremendous toll on our nation’s health.
SugarScience.org cites research showing that drinking just one can of soda per day can increase a person’s risk of dying from heart disease by nearly one-third, and can raise the risk of getting Type 2 diabetes by one-quarter.
More than 27 million Americans have been diagnosed with heart disease, which is the nation’s leading cause of death. Another 25.8 million Americans have Type 2 diabetes, caused by the body’s resistance to the hormone insulin coupled with the inability to produce enough insulin to regulate blood sugar levels.
Twenty years ago, type 2 diabetes was unheard of among children, but now, more than 13,000 children are diagnosed with it each year. Diabetes is a devastating disease and we know that it is directly related to the added sugar we consume in food and beverages.
Another rising concern is the impact of added sugar on Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD), which affects 31 percent of adults and 13 percent of children, and can lead to cirrhosis and liver failure.
In June of this year, when I moved back to Sweden from the U.S., I saw it. I saw that something amazing had happened to the 5-year old boy living close to us. The boy that one year prior hardly spoke, was now very different. I asked the family to write their story: (more…)
