“LET FOOD BE THY MEDICINE AND MEDICINE BE THY FOOD” Hippocrates The reality: TOO MUCH SUGARY, “DEAD” FOOD CAUSING….. INFLAMMATION CENTRAL OBESITY INSULIN RESISTANCE
FACTS 3 #1 killer of women: HEART DISEASE 1 in 4 women die of heart disease in US CVD death rate substantially higher in black women than white women Risk factors: high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, smoking, elevated cholesterol, inactivity
“CARDIO”METABOLIC SYNDROME 4 Combination of medical disorders that increase risk of CVD and diabetes Hyperglycemia (FBS >100 or T2DM) Hyperinsulinemia High blood pressure Central obesity (waist >35 inches in women) Reduced HDL “good” cholesterol (<60) Elevated triglycerides (>150)
KNOW YOUR NUMBERS!! “Real Time” 5 BLOOD PRESSURE < 120/80 TOTAL CHOLESTEROL < 200 HDL CHOLESTEROL (good) 45-60 LDL CHOLESTEROL (bad) <100 GLUCOSE <100 F HEIGHT, WEIGHT, WAIST SIZE <35 inches BODY MASS INDEX (BMI) <25
WAIST SIZE MEASURES OF CENTRAL OBESITY absolute waist circumference >40 INCHES MEN >35 INCHES women waist–hip ratio: waist divided by hips waist–hip ratio >0.9 for men and >0.85 for women 6
ABDOMINAL Fat 7 Not just a passive depot of fat Active manufacturer of toxic “signals” to other parts of the body 25 different signaling compounds known to be made by fat cells Helps maintain itself by producing a chemical that regulates appetite.
KNOW ALL OF YOUR NUMBERS!! “Predictors” 8 hs-CRP (High Sensitivity C Reactive Protein) (<1) HOMOCYSTEINE (<10 umol/L) VITAMIN D3 (25 hydroxy vit D)- 50-70ng/Ml HgBA1C (< 5.5) Insulin levels HORMONE LEVELS (Thyroid, Adrenal, Ovarian)
Vitamin D 12 Formed in skin through action of UVB light on cholesterol Converted in liver & kidney to 25-OH D then 1,25 di-OH D Purpose: stimulates absorption of calcium by intestines Has wide ranging physiologic effects on other organs including the heart
Disorders Linked to Vitamin D Deficiency 13 Stroke Cardiovascular disease Osteoporosis Cancer Autoimmune diseases: multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, Type 1 diabetes Depression
Test and Treat 14 Ask your physician for a 25 Hydroxy Vit D level (total) Optimal levels: 50-80 ng/mL Treat if lower than 30 ng/ml Vitamin D3 5000 IU a day SHOULD BE PART OF THE ANNUAL PHYSICAL EXAMINATION
ANOTHER SILENT KILLER: Inflammation 15 Basic mechanism and response of our immune system Intended to be short term to fend off microbes and heal wounds Chronic, low level inflammation now EPIDEMIC! Cause: DIET – refined sugar & starches, saturated, trans fats
INFLAMMATION 16 Important risk factor in cardiovascular disease Affects 60-70 million Americans Promotes atherosclerosis/thrombosis Associated with HTN, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome Is measurable in blood tests that are available through your physician
High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein 17 hs-CRP is a biochemical marker of subclinical inflammation Levels > 3mg/L = elevated risk for MI and stroke Part of metabolic syndrome definition EVEN IN HEALTHY WITH “NORMAL” CHOLESTEROL LEVELS! Ask your doctor to check your hs-CRP
Pro-Inflammatory Foods 18 Red Meats Saturated fats (meat fats, lard) Fried foods Cooking oils (corn, safflower, sunflower) Trans fats (margarine, chips,candies,cereals, baked goods) SUGAR* - the single most serious cause of inflammation!
Anti-Inflammatory Foods 19 Foods high in Omega-3 fatty acids (wild Atlantic salmon, mackerel, sardines) EVOO, canola Raw nuts and seeds (pecans,almonds,walnuts,flaxseeds) Dark green vegetables Homemade soups with chicken or meat bones (glucosamine/chondroitin)
SUPPLEMENT FOUNDATION 20 Multivitamin/Multimineral (Whole Food) daily Omega-3 fish oil 1000-3000mg daily Vitamin C 1000mg – 3000mg daily B-Complex 1 daily Vitamin D3 5000 IU daily CoQ10 100mg daily
KEEP BUILDING….. 21 PROBIOTICS daily DIGESTIVE ENZYMES with each meal Other system specific supplements based on testing and diagnosis
WHERE SHOULD I BUY? 22 The Vitamin Shoppe GNC Complementary Prescriptions (www.cpmedical.net) Whole Foods, Wild Oats, Green Acres Juice Plus+ (www.docstanleyjuiceplus.com)
WHEAT…I THOUGHT IT WAS GOOD FOR ME? THEN: “amber waves of grain” Tall, willowy, HEALTHY! NOW: 2 feet shorter, stockier to support heavier seed bed “FRANKENGRAINS”
WHAT HAPPENED? 40-50 years of cross breeding & hybridization Safety for human consumption never tested in large scale scientific experiments USED EXTREME TECHNIQUES to alter the genetics i.e. potent industrial poisons Induces mutations in plants genetic code
AMYLOPECTIN A = SUGAR More efficiently converted to blood sugar than table sugar 2 slices of whole wheat bread raise blood sugar higher than a candy bar 2 hours later blood sugar plunges >>>hunger Cycle of highs and lows
…….INSULIN LEVELS SOAR With rise in blood sugar comes rise in insulin Glucose-insulin “roller coaster” Drives appetite, addictive brain exorphins Insulin causes visceral fat deposition Toxins produced in abnormal, visceral fat increase risks Hormone interrupters
GLUTEN = GLIADIN PROTEIN Binds to brain’s opiate receptors = euphoria GI/digestive problems Direct inflammatory effect on bowel, CNS Stimulates appetite
CHALLENGE ELIMINATE WHEAT (Daniels Fast) OVERALL REDUCTION OF CARBOHYDRATES REPLACE WITH REAL FOOD VEGETABLES, RAW NUTS, HEALTHY OILS, MEATS, EGGS, FISH ………visit Dr. Rita Stanley to guide you through this process and help you regain your health and vitality!
