Chronic Stress Doesn’t Stay in Your Head

Natural Stress reducers

Adaptogens are eliminated or absorbed into the body without any side effects- they work slowly and gently, contrasting the instantaneous gratification of the caffeine cycle, you must be patient because they work subtly but the benefits are undeniable and long lasting.

Here are 6 of the best adaptogens:

1. Ashwaganda

The easer of anxiety, depression and sleep issues. Ashwaganda has immuno-modulating effects that boost and regulate the immune system and lower cortisol levels. You can take Ashwaganda is supplement form, I recommend Organic India Ashwaganda.

2. Astralagus

Increases the amount of anti-stress compounds our bodies use to prevent and repair stress-related damage. By reducing the ability of stress hormones like cortisol to bind to receptors, astralagus boosts immunity and shields the body from the effects of stress.  I recommend adding 20-30 drops of Astralagus Root Extract to your morning juices or smoothies.

3. Cordycep Mushroom

Funguses with antioxidant properties include Reishi, Shiitake, and Maitake mushrooms. Each have adaptogenic, anti-tumor, and immune enhancing properties.  You can easily add a scoop of Cordycep powder to Smoothies, I like Mushroom Matrix Organic Cordycep.

4. Holy Basil (Tulsi)

Referred to as the “elixir of anti-aging,” holy basil helps fight fatigue and stress, boosts the immune system, and regulates blood sugar, blood pressure, and hormone levels.  My favorite way to enjoy Holy Basil is in a warm cup of Tulsi Tea by Organic India.

5. Rhodiola (Golden Root)

Contains the phytochemical salisdroside which helps resist anxiety and aging. Other benefits include suppression of the production of cortisol, increased levels of stress-resistant proteins, restoration of normal patterns of eating and sleeping after stress, resistance to mental and physical fatigue, and protection against oxidative stress, heat stress, radiation and toxic chemicals. Additional research has shown this adaptogen can protect the heart and liver, increase use of oxygen, improve memory and longevity, as well as aid in weight loss.  One of the easiest ways to take is in supplement form, I suggest Gaia Herbs Rhodiola.

6. Schisandra

Used for preventing early aging which counteracts cortisol’s aging effects. Schisandra is also used to increase lifespan, increase resistance to disease, increase energy and physical performance, normalize blood sugar, and stimulate the immune system.  You can easily take as a supplement, like these Planetary Herb Adrenal Complex or add into shakes, juices, smoothies with Dragon Herb’s Goji & Shizandra.

Incorporating adaptogens into your daily regimen will allow you to feel a huge improvement in your energy and stress levels, a bigger improvement than you could think some small plants can do.

Soda: Public health enemy No. 1?

It’s a well-known adage: Drinking too much soda is bad for you.  But just how bad is excessive soda consumption for your body?

The unanimous answer from experts: “Very.” And regular soda isn’t the only culprit. Even diet drinks, which utilize artificial sweeteners in place of sugar, could still negatively impact an individual’s health.

High rates of soda consumption have been linked with numerous health problems, including weight gain, poor dental health, diabetes and cardiovascular disease – which can ultimately lead to heart attacks, stroke and premature death.

To help better understand the risks of drinking too much soda, doctors from Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City and UH Case Medical Centers in Cleveland, Ohio detailed exactly how the body responds to sugary, sweetened beverages, as well as how you can cut soda from your diet without eliminating it completely.

Calories and weight

The average American consumes 45 gallons of sugary, sweetened beverages per year, according to a 2011 study by Yale University.  Meanwhile, the obesity epidemic is in full swing in the United States, with more than 69 percent of adults considered overweight or obese – a problem which many health experts are quick to blame on Americans’ soda habit.

“The main thing is excess calories,” Dr. Christopher Ochner, assistant professor of pediatrics and adolescent medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, told FoxNews.com.  “If everything else in their diet is equal, a person who has a can of Coke a day adds an extra 14.5 pounds per year, just from the calories alone.”

“You’d probably be better off eating those calories at McDonald’s, because you’d at least get some nutrition.”

– Dr. Christopher Ochner, professor at Mount Sinai, regarding drinking a 12-ounce can of soda

Many nutritionists espouse the idea that “a calorie is a calorie,” meaning it doesn’t matter where your calories are coming from as long as you consume around 2,000 a day.  And with a 12-ounce can of Coke containing only 140 calories, some consumers believe drinking a can or two of soda per day isn’t making much of a difference in their diet.

But according to Ochner, new studies have emerged in the past decade that suggest all calories may not be created equal.

“We’re finding some research that seems to indicate that calories from sugar are more easily turned into fat in your body than calories from fat in food are turned into fat in your body,” Ochner said.  Translation: Eating and drinking sugar makes you gain more weight than eating fat.

Another problem with sugary beverages is the method of consumption – drinking. Ochner noted that when individuals drink a lot of calories, their bodies don’t register fullness as quickly as when they eat the calories.  Therefore, they tend to drink more and more soda without getting a signal from their bodies to stop.

Furthermore, as people consume lots of sugar in one sitting, they experience what is commonly referred to as a “sugar rush.”  To match this spike in sugar, the body produces a spike in insulin, which is followed by a glucose crash.  How do people compensate for this crash? Typically by consuming more sugar, Ochner said.

“These people wind up spiking and crashing, and the system that keeps trying to regulate this – it’s up and down,” Ochner said, referring to what is known as the glycemic index. “You get dysregulation, and you wind up getting insulin resistance.  The body’s not able to properly metabolize the sugar, which ultimately leads to diabetes.”

Due to the overwhelmingly adverse health effects associated with drinking soda, Ochner recommends that people should drop soda completely from their diets. But if you still need that 140-calorie fix, he said almost anything else is better than soda.

“There’s zero nutritional value.  None,” Ochner said.  “You’d probably be better off eating those calories at McDonald’s, because you’d at least get some nutrition.”

Heart health

While the extra pounds gained through soda consumption often contribute to adverse heart conditions such as cardiovascular disease and stroke, some experts believe that drinking sugary drinks can increase a person’s risk for an unhealthy heart independent of weight gain.

CDC Facts on Sugary Drinks Consumption

– About half of the population consumes sugar drinks on any given day.

– Teenagers and young adults consume more sugar drinks than other age groups.

– Males consume more sugar drinks than females.

To learn more about the consumption of sugary drinks, visit CDC.gov.

 

The three main ingredients in a 12-ounce can of soda include 41 grams of sugar, 30 milligrams of sodium and 38 milligrams of caffeine.  According to Dr. Mary Ann McLaughlin, medical director of the cardiac health program and co-director of the women’s cardiac assessment and risk evaluation program at Mount Sinai, it’s the latter two ingredients that do the most damage to the heart.

“Caffeine can increase heart rate and blood pressure, and too much sodium over the course of the day can increase food retention.  This combination of caffeine and sodium has a dehydrating effect,” McLaughlin told FoxNews.com. “People drink because they’re thirsty, but they end up urinating before long because of the caffeine. What you want is for the heart to be replenished with water, so they think they are hydrating themselves, but they’re really not if most of what they drink is soda.”

Studies have also shown that people who consume soda tend to develop metabolic syndrome, a condition characterized by a cluster of symptoms, including abdominal girth, elevated blood pressure, raised glucose, elevated triglycerides and low HDL cholesterol (commonly referred to as “good cholesterol”).

“What we consider to be the implication is this accelerates the risk factors for atherosclerosis,” Dr. Sahil Parikh, a cardiologist for UH Case Medical Center in Cleveland, told FoxNews.com.  “Atherosclerosis is the hardening of the arteries, so when we talk about adult heart disease, we talk about atherosclerosis.”

Is diet soda any better?

Many soda lovers who understand the ill effects of soda think that turning to diet soft drinks may be a better option, since these beverages tout “zero” calories.  But health experts are still on the fence about diet soda, as more and more evidence surfaces linking these drinks to equally damaging health conditions.

“Interestingly, diet soda is not without its own problems, because it turns out if you look at people who drink diet soda, they tend to be heavier,” McLaughlin said.

Ochner said he has an open, but skeptical view about diet soda, since the studies out there have yet to establish a causal connection between diet soft drinks and obesity.

“Most of them are asking people how much diet soda they drink,” Ochner said.  “But it also may be that more obese people are trying to lose weight, so they are more likely to try diet soda.”

However, a recent study from Purdue University argued that behavioral explanations aren’t fully to blame for the link between soft drinks and obesity.  The researchers maintained that artificial sweeteners in soft drinks trick the body into reacting differently when it tastes something sweet, ultimately throwing off metabolism.

So what are soda lovers to do?  Of course, health experts recommend replacing soft drinks with plain old water. But people don’t necessarily need to cut soda from their diet completely.  The American Heart Association recommends consuming no more than 450 calories per week from sugar sweetened beverages, based on a daily diet of 2,000 calories.

“Everything in moderation,” Ochner said. “It’s 140 calories. It’s like eating a packet of gummy bears.  If you eat that once a week, it won’t affect you.  Very few things in moderation are really going to hurt you.”

So next time you’re offered a chance to super-size your soda at the movie theater, health experts advise to think twice.

“Too much of a bad thing is a bad thing,” Parikh told FoxNews.com.

Israelis show why chronic stress leads to disease


Constant low levels of cortisol destroy normal regulation of the immune system, putting stressed-out people at risk of autoimmune disorders.

“There is no neurological syndrome that has nothing to do with the immune system,” says Prof. Alon Monsonego. Photo by Dani Machlis/BGU

“There is no neurological syndrome that has nothing to do with the immune system,” says Prof. Alon Monsonego. Photo by Dani Machlis/BGU

An intricate dance goes on between our immune and neurological systems, and by analyzing the microscopic choreography, Israel’s Prof. Alon Monsonego has made a unique discovery.

As he explains in the April 29
European Journal of Immunology
, chronic stress leaves us more vulnerable to developing an autoimmune disorder.

“We believe there is no neurological syndrome that has nothing to do with the immune system,” Monsonego tells ISRAEL21c.

When we experience an episode of acute stress – a traffic accident, for example – our adrenal glands get a message to release the hormone cortisol, otherwise known as the stress hormone.

Cortisol temporarily suppresses the immune system and adds glucose (sugar) to the bloodstream in seconds, giving our bodies optimum power to get through the dangerous or frightening episode.

But when we experience chronic stress – say, caring for a relative with Alzheimer’s or working in a pressured profession – we’ve got low levels of cortisol coursing through our blood all the time.

After awhile, the constantly present stress hormone permanently damages immune-system cells, and the ones that survive become aggressively resistant to the hormone.

In other words, chronic stress causes a breakdown in the normal regulation of the immune system. And that can lead to autoimmune diseases, where we produce antibodies that destroy our own tissues. Some of these 80 diseases include multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and Type 1 diabetes.

“Which one you develop depends on genetics and environment,” Monsonego says, adding that chronic inflammation from conditions such as arthritis also triggers the release of cortisol.

Next step: a test to measure effects of cortisol

Using chronically stressed lab mice exposed to a disease similar to multiple sclerosis, Monsonego and Ben-Gurion University of the Negev colleagues Dr. Idan Harpaz and Prof. Hagit Cohen showed that the mice were more prone to develop the disease than they were under normal conditions.

The effect was more significant in female mice than in male mice. Not surprising, since more women than men develop autoimmune disease.

The Israeli team’s revelation of the mechanisms that cause damage to immune system regulation is unprecedented.

The potential practical applications of this discovery are immense.

Because not everyone reacts to stress in the same way, a blood test to measure the effect of cortisol on immune-system functioning would provide a valuable tool for preventing an autoimmune disease from developing, he says.

“It may be that a certain lifestyle is not stressful to one person but it can be very stressful to someone else. If someone is in danger of any type of chronic stress, we may not know when they’re at a point of [immune system] damage, and this can help people pay attention to it and reduce stress before they get sick.”

He advises that exercise, proper nutrition and stress management are essential to keep psychological stress from causing physical illness.

For people who already suffer an autoimmune disease, the same blood test would help physicians determine appropriate doses of the synthetic cortisol (steroids) generally prescribed to people with these diseases.

“It is well-known that patients respond differently to treatment with steroids, and we like to limit steroids as much as possible,” says Monsonego. “But at some point they do not work. Patients develop resistance and you don’t know this if you can’t measure.

He hopes his research will lead to a way of determining from the start if the patient is resistant to steroid therapy.

Monsonego, who describes his field of neuro-immunology as “an attempt to understand the dialogue between the neurological and immune systems,” is now completing a study with his collaborators on the physical effects of chronic stress on early-stage Alzheimer’s patients and their spouses.

Medgadget –Respira!: DIY Spacers for Asthma Attacks- by Gene Ostrovsky on Aug 22, 2007 • 10:29 am = Stanford University’s Design School along with the School of Medicine tackled a simple problem that is costing a lot of rural Mexican asthmatics a lot of time. The issue is a lack of “spacers”, simple devices that create an air chamber in front of the mouth into which the inhaler discharges its medicine, and then the patient can easily breathe it in.

Inhalers are used in combination with a device commonly called a “spacer.” A spacer is a chamber that attaches to an inhaler, captures the discharged medication and holds it until the patient inhales it. In spite of their effectiveness, these devices are unavailable in Mexican Health Centers due to their cost (~ $50 plus distribution). Using paper and a precise system of cuts and folds, we have designed a spacer that can be produced for approximately 25 cents, a cost reduction of more than 99%. Furthermore, the device can be distributed as a flat sheet to be folded into a usable form on-site, so hundreds can be sent for the cost of a stamp.

STEPS TO A HEALTHIER BRAIN

Dr. David Perlmutter, MD, FACN, ABIHM, and a member of the LifeVantage Scientific Advisory Board, is a Board-Certified Neurologist and Fellow of the American College of Nutrition. He received his M.D. degree from the University of Miami School of Medicine.
He is the author of the bestselling books,” The Better Brain Book” and “Raise a Smarter Child By Kindergarten” and is recognized internationally as a leader in the field of nutritional influences in neurological disorders. Dr. Perlmutter lectured at symposia sponsored by Columbia University and Harvard University and has been interviewed on many nationally-syndicated radio and television programs including 20/20, Larry King Live, CNN, Fox News, Fox and Friends, The Today Show, Oprah, Oprah and Friends, Oprah Radio with Dr. Oz, and The CBS Early Show. He has been honored for his pioneering work in innovative approaches to neurological disorders, for his work in advancing the understanding of free radical biochemistry in neurological diseases and earlier this year presented at the first International Congress on Alzheimer’s Disease and Advanced Neurotechnologies in the Principality of Monaco.
Dr. David Perlmutter is also currently featured on page 119 of the June/July issue of “Esquire” magazine talking about four steps to a healthier brain. Here is what he has said about the importance of taking Protandim: “Protandim goes well beyond any currently available nutritional supplement by actually turning on the genes that control the production of antioxidants. While the general public may not be familiar with glutathione, catalase or superoxide dismutase (SOD), these are among the most important antioxidants in human physiology. And it is precisely these antioxidants that are significantly increased by this truly revolutionary supplement.”
As a customer of LifeVantage, you know what he is talking about. We just wanted to remind you of the healthy choice you make each day when you make Protandim a part of your health routine. http://www.mylifevantage.com/healinghope


a scientist’s perspective on why he takes protandim.


“My personal ‘take’ on Protandim, and I take it every day so I do think about it every day, is that I like to think of Protandim as playing a key role in cellular fitness. I jog, and similar to the way exercise contributes to physical fitness, Protandim…contributes to overall cellular fitness. For me, that means that when I’m approached by oxidative stress insults, I’m doing what I can to make myself and my body as prepared as it can be to withstand those insults.” (Dr. Brooks Hybertson, Ph.D., LifeVantage Scientific Advisory Board)
Dr. Hybertson has an extensive background in scientific research and development, and has been the principal investigator on a variety of research pertaining to nutrition, oxidant/antioxidant balance, inflammation, cancer, materials science, and drug delivery with support from the National Institutes of Health, the American Lung Association, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the Cancer Research and Prevention Foundation, the American Heart Association and the Department of Energy. He has extensive experience in laboratory research, product development, and customer support and has authored or co-authored over 50 scientific publications.
“Thoughtful consumers are drawn to Protandim,” Dr. Hybertson explained. “People should have the right tools in hand to meet their health and wellness objectives and Protandim is one of those tools.”

The Easiest Way to Live Longer

The Easiest Way To Live Longer-http://health.yahoo.net/experts/dayinhealth/easiest-way-live-longer
By Lisa Collier Cool
Sep 11, 2012

Did you know that every minute you walk can extend your life by 1.5 to 2 minutes? In addition, many studies show that people who walk regularly live longer, weigh less, have lower blood pressure, and enjoy better overall health than non-walkers.
Ready to lace on your shoes? If you want to add to the amount of walking you do, just clip on a pedometer. That simple action actually increases your physical activity by over 2100 steps per day, a reviewthat pooled data from 26 studies found.
Here’s a look at ten benefits of walking.
Walking Increases Your Lifespan
Walking more than an hour a day improves life expectancy significantly, a 2011 study showed. The researchers looked at 27,738 participants between the ages of 40 and 79 over a 13-year period. Surprisingly, their lifetime medical costs did not increase—even though they lived longer.
“An increase in walking time at the population level would bring about a tremendous change in people’s health and medical cost,” the study authors wrote.
Walking Wards Off Diabetes
Just thirty minutes of walking a day can prevent diseases such as type 2 diabetes, a 2002 study looking at both overweight and average weight men and women in a population at high risk for the disease showed.
If you already have diabetes, walking is helpful for you, too. A mile or more daily cuts your risk of death from all causes in half, according to a 2007 study.
Walking Keeps Your Mind Sharp
Walking 72 blocks a week (around six to nine miles) helps increase grey matter, which in turn lowers the risk of suffering from cognitive impairment—or trouble with concentration, memory and thought, according to a study which looked at 299 seniors over a nine-year period.
Furthermore, walking five miles per week can provide some protection to the memory and learning areas of the brains of those already suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or mild cognitive impairment, and lead to a slower decline in memory loss.
Common Symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease
Walking Helps Lower Blood Pressure
Walking just 30 minutes a day, three to five days a week—even when the 30 minutes are broken into three ten-minute increments—has been found to significantly lower blood pressure.
Walking is Great for Bone Health
Putting one foot in front of the other for about a mile a day led to improved bone density in post-menopausal women, and slowed the rate of bone loss from the legs, according to a 1994 study. “It takes walkers four to seven years longer to reach the point of very low bone density, study leader Dr. Krall told the New York Times.
Walking Cuts the Risk of Stroke
Walking about 12.5 miles a week or more cut the risk of stroke in half, according to a studylooking at over 11,000 Harvard University alumni with an average age of 58.
Walking Improves Your Mood
If you’re feeling down in the dumps, walking is a quick and easy solution. Just thirty minutes on a treadmill reduces feelings of tension and depression, according to research published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine. In fact, the study found that walking lifted moods more quickly than anti-depressants did (and with fewer side effects).
And the more people walk, the better their mood and energy, says California State University Long Beach professor Robert Thayer, based on a studylooking at 37 study participants over a 20-day period.
Walking Torches Calories
Just 20 minutes of walking a day will burn 7 pounds a year. The effects are even more dramatic when you add in some dietary changes as well.
23 Diet Plans Reviewed: Do They Work?
Walking Improves Insomnia
Having trouble sleeping at night? Try taking a brisk 45-minute walk in the morning five days a week, and your sleep may improve significantly, according to research from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, which looked at women from the age of 50-74. (Walking in the evening, however, sometimes has the opposite effect—so keep an eye on when you’re exercising and what your sleep patterns are.)
Walking is Good for the Heart
Women who took brisk walks for three or more hours per week reduced their risk of heart disease by 30-40 percent, according to an analysis of over 72,000 women aged 40-65, who were enrolled in the prospective Nurses’ Health Study. As I reported recently, heart attacks kill more US women than men annually. However, the benefits of walking aren’t limited to one gender. A different study showed that walking can cut the risk of coronary heart disease in half for men between the ages of 71 and 93.
