Why is Coconut Oil Good For You?

We have been brain-washed into believing that saturated fat is bad for us.  I have always had trouble with this idea because both of my sets of grandparents were dairy farmers whose diets were heavy in delicious saturated fats.  None of them had a weight problem, nor did any of their 15 children.  Indeed, my maternal grandmother never weighed more than 90 pounds soaking wet, even after a dozen or so children! She and my mother loved buttermilk (yuck), put heavy cream in everything, and slathered toast with homemade butter.  I can still remember the mouthwatering poached our eggs mom made by poaching them in butter and milk.Speaking of the milk that we drank growing up, it had to have ...

Is There Such Thing as a Healthy Sweetener?

Yes there is! Coconut Crystals and Coconut Nectar are the best tasting, safest, most nutritious way to sweeten up your life I have found yet. This is it, the mother load of nutrition and great taste! A company called “Coconut Secrets” makes them. Check them out: http://www.coconutsecret.com/index.html.

How and When Are Glutamic and Aspartic Acid Good For You?

Both are amino acids. In general amino acids are critical to life. They are the building blocks of proteins, which are nothing more than linear chains of amino acids. Twenty-two amino acids form the polypeptides that are known as the “essential” and “nonessential” amino acids.  The essential amino acids cannot be created from other compounds but must be taken in as food by humans. Essential Nonessential Isoleucine Alanine Leucine Asparagine Lysine Aspartic Acid Methionine Cysteine* Phenylalanine Glutamic Acid Threonine Glutamine* Tryptophan Glycine* Valine Proline* Selenocysteine* Serine* Tyrosine* Arginine* Histidine* Ornithine* Taurine*   Glutamic Acid, which is the most abundant amino acid in the body, provides many health benefits in it’s naturally occurring state including: Increasing Protein synthesis which is needed ...

Sweeteners, No Good News Here!

NutraSweet and Equal are two popular sweeteners on the market today. Both are made primarily of Aspartame. Aspartame is another very dangerous substance that you and your loved ones should think twice before consuming.  It is comprised of three ingredients:  It is 40% aspartic acid, which is an excitotoxin that stimulates the neurons of the brain to death, causing brain damage according to Dr. Russell Blaylock; It is 10% methyl ester, which eventually breaks down to formaldehyde and formic acid; (You remember Formaldehyde, that horrible smelling stuff from the biology lab that is used to preserve dead bodies?)  The remaining 50% is phenylalanine, which by itself, is a neurotoxin that lowers the seizure threshold, thereby increasing the likelihood of brain ...

Diet Foods and Artificial Sweeteners Cause Weight Gain

So if sweeteners are so bad, why are so many people using them? Because they believe the alternative, weight gain, is worse. Think again: Research shows that people who use artificial sweeteners eat more than those that do not. We know that MSG, HFCS, and artificial sweeteners are all excitoxins, which means that they stimulate neurons to death. Excitoxins over-stimulate and damage the parts of the brain that regulate healthy eating behavior. In a study that included more than 18,000 people, researchers found that healthy adults who consumed at least one diet drink a day significantly increased their chances of gaining weight. I find that my patients with the most intense food addictions consume diet soft drinks and diet gum ...

17 Most Important Foods to Eat Organic

1. Baby Food. The very young are extraordinarily susceptible to pesticides. Here are some organic baby food brands, Earth’s Best, Tender Harvest, and Healthy Times, which are available for your baby’s safety and health. Or better yet, make your own baby food by cooking and pureeing organic produce. See “Make Your Own Baby Food”. 2. Strawberries. Enjoy them while they are in season from local organic farms or buy frozen organic strawberries from your local whole market. 3. Rice. Domestic rice has mega-doses of pesticides, and now, the chemicals companies are producing “pharm” rice a crop used to produce and store pharmaceuticals. Buy organic rice where you can find it! Store it in an airtight container. It stores very well. ...

Baby Formula: MSG, Excitatory Neurotoxins & HFCS!!!

Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) or Glutamic Acid is an excitatory neurotoxin, which significantly damages the brain, especially the brains of infants and children. Once the developing brain is damaged, it never recovers normal function. There has been a significant increase in neurological disturbances in children over the last several decades. For example, the rate of autism, a developmental disorder that affects communication and social skills, was around four or five cases per 10,000 early in this decade. In 2009, it was closer to 80 per 10,000. MSG also contributes to the epidemic of obesity in children, and more recently infants, that is taking place currently. Other additives such as High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) and sugar substitutes such as NutraSweet and ...

HFCS: Ties to Obesity and Increased Mortality

High Fructose Corn Syrup is a clear liquid sugar product made from corn starch. It has a long shelf life and is relatively cheap to use, which is why it is so common in inexpensive foods like chips and soda. It has been tied to increased rates of obesity, which can lead to heart disease and cancer. “When HFCS is ingested, it travels straight to the liver which turns the sugary liquid into fat, and unlike other carbohydrates HFCS does not cause the pancreas to produce insulin; which acts as a hunger quenching signal to the brain. So we get stuck in a vicious cycle, eating food that gets immediately stored as fat and never feeling full.” HFCS is temporally ...

Regulating Our Glutamate Intake

The term “glutamate” refers to a number of forms of glutamic acid, an amino acid found naturally in many foods and in our bodies. It is a powerful excitatory neurotransmitter that is released by nerve cells in the brain. It is responsible for sending signals between nerve cells, and under normal conditions it plays an important role in learning and memory. There are two general ways, however, that glutamate can actually be damaging to nerve cells and the brain as a whole. First, there can be too much glutamate around; abnormally high concentrations of glutamate can lead to overexcitation of the receiving nerve cell. Second, the receptors for glutamate on the receiving nerve cell can be oversensitive so that less ...
