Restoring blood sugar levels WILL NOT fix diabetes…

Restoring blood sugar levels WILL NOT fix diabetes or get you off the diabetic - Heart Disease - Alzheimer's disease path.

This is a hash reality, especially for the nutritionists, nutritionally minded medical doctors, chiropractors, and naturopaths and nutrition enthusiasts out there.

Diabetes is not a blood sugar problem. It is not even an insulin (hormone) problem..... as I often have said.

No, I am not changing my stance, but let's look at this:

Diabetes, as in the systemic pathological state and disease is due to a combination of the following:

  1. Liver function and structural changes: Fatty liver, glycogen inflexibility, glucagon (hormonal) feedback control issues.
  2. Pancreas problems part 1: Insulin. Insulin secretion phase one response, Beta cell damage that produce insulin, Alpha cell damage that insulin acts on and regulates glucagon.
  3. Pancreas problems part 2: Pancreatic enzyme production and secretion exhaustion/dysfunction.
  4. Early digestive track dysfunction of regulating stomach acid, the incretin response, and digestive motility (fast not slow).
  5. Systemic insulin overexposure: cellular receptor changes, cross reaction to other hormones like cortisol, thyroid hormone, and sex hormones (estrogen and testosterone).

If these 5 areas are not addressed and CHANGED physiologically, the systemic pathology that drives diabetes and causes it's many complications, heart disease, weight issues, and Alzheimer's WILL STILL progress.....even in the presence of "normal" blood sugar levels and weight loss.

READ THAT AGAIN: Diabetes...."WILL STILL progress.....even in the presence of "normal" blood sugar levels and weight loss."

Balancing blood sugar with diet, even a great diet, or with products, medications, shakes or the like, in most cases, will help you feel a bit better, look a bit better, but over time will give you a false sense of healing and security as the bigger systemic problem grows and progresses.

This is why neither forcing blood sugar into a "normal range" or just losing weight has shown to have much effect on the development of diabetes, heart disease, heart attacks, or dieing prematurely.

All of the above can be reversed to some extent and in many fully. It takes a very specific plan, time, a combination of strategies at different times, can only be done naturally, and goes way beyond balancing blood sugar.

I don't want anyone out there dealing with this issue, giving it their all, only to stay on the same path in the long run when there is a chance to get off the path and write a new map for your health and future.

We can do better my friends!

Healing Yo-Yo dieting damage.

People drastically underestimate the negative effects and damage that can be done from repeated Yo-Yo dieting with traditional low calorie, low fat diets.

It is especially pronounced when these diets follow a multiple meal and snack model eating 5-7 plus times a day and use processed foods, shakes, and pre-made meals in the process.

This model has been used and is well documented for over 50 years and clearly shows a significant problem.

Studies show that the weight lost in these conventional approaches is limited, is not usually fat and if it is, it is not the organ and visceral fat that matters, and the weight almost never stays off with 130% of the fat lost returning as more fat.

The number of cases where people lose a significant amount of weight and keep it off are very, very few. The estimated probability of going from an obese state to normal weight is over 1 in 1,200.

Why?

This model of conventional dieting does not shift the hormonal profile or neurological tone. At best it lessens the severity of the hormones, but does not change the hormonal balance or ratios and therefor the process might be slowed down but is not stopped nor reversed. If the process is not reversed and the hormonal profile not changed then the same problem that caused the weight in the first place will remain and block weight from coming off, continue to shift the body composition to having more fat, and when one returns to eating "normally" for maintenance or the like, will guarantee the return and gain of extra body fat.

Each time we do this the liver, pancreas, adrenals, thyroid, and brain with all their associated hormones get teased and stressed and become less and less willing to play nice.

This is called weight loss resistance. You know it is happening to you when you do the things that you did before to lose weight and nothing happens. Or you do everything perfectly, your diet is stellar, you exercise 3-4 times a week, and at the end of the month.....nothing.....or even worse, your weight goes up. Or you cut calories dramatically with no change in weight but a ton of added misery.

Each time you use this low cal, low fat model you reinforce this problem and lock the issue deeper and deeper into your body and system.

This Yo-Yo profile not only stops you from losing weight but it drive your body to age quicker and promote chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease, chronic fatigue, Alzheimer's, and even cancer, depression and anxiety.

Cut the string on the Yo-Yo diet game and ditch the low calorie, low fat model for weight loss and health.

Stop cutting calories and start counting hormones and everything will change in time. It takes effort, time, and a solid plan but can and truly has to be done, and you can do it!

We can do better my friends!

Eat less, exercise more

Eat-less,-exercise-more

If you are a health professional and you are still parroting this as a viable plan for weight loss, you need to stop.

Eat less move more is an out dated concept that the public already knows is flawed and only reflects poorly on the health care professionals who still mistakenly promote it.

Eat less and exercise more as a solution to weight loss or health improvement is a pre-critical mass and a pre-evidence based story and concept.

This story has been told and repeated for over 50 years and was founded on assumptions rather than science or research. As time progressed this story was never reassessed and updated in the light of the new information and never questioned when outcomes continued to show failure and a worsening of the situation.

Now, enough people have tried this embarrassing model in the form of every major diet program offered over the decades preaching eat less (daily calorie restriction) and move more (more recreational physical activity). The public is now living in the post-critical mass awareness of this subject.

As this fairy tale continued to be promoted, the government added their twist wrongly attacking fat and villainizing saturated fat and cholesterol making these diets not only low calorie but low fat.

This conventional weight loss model is responsible for the cursed phenomenon of Yo-Yo dieting and all the misery, disappointment, and eventual worsening of weight issues that followed.

Americans know this model doesn't work. They have tried it, over and over again. They listened to their doctors, government and nutrition experts who developed new marketing and packaging of these old concepts using new shake mixes, supplements, pills, powders and potions attached to the same old party line of, "eat less, and move more."

The collective consciousness knows this model doesn't work and each time a person in authority, a health professional or trusted doctor recites the same old excuse of a solution that they know doesn't work it builds resentment and frustration.

In the process the professional undercuts their value and trust and makes themselves look bad and as out dated as their advice.

If anyone tries and tell you, "it's simple, you just need to eat less and exercise more," and you feel put off, ignored, or even lied to.....you just may be right on all three. Don't accept it.

Doctors and health professionals, don't perpetuate this mistake.

Keep following, we can do better, there is a better explanation and a more effective approach.

It is time for the Modern Lifestyle Medicine paradigm to stand tall and leave that old dangerous model in the shadows.

Any Idea What The Courage Hormone Is?

The hormone that makes us brave?

When I first read about the description for this hormone I thought first of testosterone, adrenaline, or even cortisol. But I was mistaken.

This hormone is the hormone that I have been speaking about as the under-appreciated giant hormone personality in our lives and health.

This hormone has the ability to destroy the negative effects and high levels of chronic stress hormones like cortisol.

The way this hormone works and why it is considered the courage hormone is that when this hormone is stimulated it down regulates our fear response and can stop the fight or flight response of freeze or flee. When activated it amps up our social awareness and lights up areas of the brain associated with meaning and value and has been shown to make people more trusting, be more trust worthy and help others.

The hormone I am talking about is oxytocin. Oxytocin drives our mental awareness to what is important to us, opens our thinking to include others and promote empathy as it stimulates trust and therefor gives us courage to act in our social world and makes us brave with less fear and more compassion.

Oxytocin has been called the "bonding" hormone or the "love" hormone and is strongly stimulated during breast feeding, intimacy, and in close familiar relationships. It is also stimulated when you get or receive a compliment, play with your kids, when you hug or shake someones hand, when you pet your dog or cat, when you talk and when you journal.

The biggest social evidence of the power of oxytocin is how it changes our physiology through laughter. We have all heard that laughter is the best medicine and we can thank oxytocin for that.

Men in particular I hope you are reading and hearing this message. Many men experience mild to moderate depression and write it off under the guise of stress, corporate living, being the provider, having an "A" personality or being a "driver." These are issues I speak about in my presentation on the "Irritable Male Syndrome," and they are very real, and at these levels very responsive to oxytocin "therapy." Keep it in mind my brothers.

My friends I extend a virtual hug and mental handshake as I tell you all that I love and appreciate you and hope you join me today in seeking out a little extra humor and together we can all build up a little bit more courage and live the life of the brave!

My Ethical Issue With Reduction vs. Elimination In Dietary Recommendations.

Just about every standard diet around or that has ever been proposed have all used the same model and construct of calorie reduction and reducing fat.

There have been many clever ways to package this idea from grazing on small meals and snacks all day long, to having a point system that maxes both fat and calories in a day, to constructing blocks designed of food combinations, to straight up calorie and fat gram counting.

This massive effort was promoted by all of our government agencies, stamped with approval by all our many medical associations and institutions, and embraced by the eager food industry to all help us loose weight and get healthy.

What came next was the introduction off modern "health food," labeled as low fat and reduced calories being now called "Diet," "Light," "Lean," and used terms such as "Healthy Portion," "Heart Healthy," and were quickly promoted and partnered by the new industry of weight loss and all their new programs like Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Lean Cuisine, all they way up to Slim Fast, Nutrisystem and Medifast and all the other countless shake based meal replacement groups out there.

This new cultural model for eating essentially promoted REDUCTION. The only thing limited was fat and calories. By reducing what you ate by 25% or 500 calories a day you would lose 1 lb of body fat a week. This new fad diet concept, and yes, it is the ultimate fad diet, did not care what you ate with your daily points, blocks, and the 75% of the food you were allowed to eat.....just keep the calories lower and the fat low overall.

The 2 main concepts, the very backbone and rational off this model, low fat and daily calorie restriction are both anecdotal hypotheses, not facts, and not evidence based, AND as it turns out very limiting and actually DANGEROUS.

Calories do not determine metabolism. Fat is essential and when it gets too low it causes part of the chronic stress and malfunction that leads to disease.

Low Fat, Low Calorie dieting may induce short term moderate weight loss but it does so by injuring our metabolism. What we now know from long term EVIDENCE is that it increases your risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer and overall causes of death. AND 98% of the weight loss (usually in the form of water, some fat, and some muscle) is regained plus interest (and usually as fat giving us a net gain in fat for our efforts).

Hormones drive metabolism and paint the landscape that our health is resultantly depicted. Hormones determine hunger, satiety, fat loss and gain, muscle mass and atrophy, and even mood, mental clarity, emotions, and quality of life.

Our current Standard American Diet creates imbalances in our hormones that in time can cause our health issues. By simply reducing the frequency and severity in which we imbalance our hormones but continue to imbalance them will not stop the disease process, and doesn't seem to slow them much once started either. To recommend them knowing this is unethical and to utilize these models knowing this is denial.

Elimination is the key to today's weight and chronic disease issues. There simply are behaviors and actions that we much stop if we want to loose weight and get healthy. There are other actions and behaviors we simply have to start for the same reason.

First steps:
1. Eliminate snacking
2. Eliminate sugar

Add in first steps:
1. Eat more healthy fat
2. Mix intensity exercise/training into your physical activity

Bonus musts:
1. Improve your sleep
2. Celebrate silence: meditation and paced breathing
3. Neurological tune up: chiropractic

For more advanced concepts, scroll back on my wall and keep an eye out.

Let me know how it goes!

Health, Weight Loss and Medicine no Longer Have Rules, Only Exceptions

Health, Weight Loss and Medicine no Longer Have Rules, Only Exceptions

I love to study the development of this species we now call human. I read book after book on how we migrated across the globe, what we ate, what helped us survive, what patterns and traits formed our genetic code, how we grew these big brains, built communities and everything in between. With all that our species has gone through, and how we have evolved and slowly strengthened this amazing body and gene sequence we now have and enjoy I am constantly surprised at how much variation we now have in our health, well-being, how we respond to stress, diets, and respond to our world around us. As we evolved we didn’t all eat different ways, at different times or have all that much variety in our lifestyle at all. So why would a customized, person to person approach to weight loss, health, healing, and diet be so important today? Why is it so hard to get consistent health improvement, weight loss and results across our population? It really doesn’t make sense to me that a one size fits all approach DOSEN’T work for everyone, honestly and evolutionarily, it should……but it doesn’t! I think I know why.

Most of the people on this planet today would have died off in our natural, non-modern, non-cultivation, environment of the time past. Many of the people here and now, their families, and their entire lineages would not even be swimming in the gene pool today if the same world that formed our genetics was still in effect and ruling it today. What we call diversity in our populations is really an accumulating and growing set of genetic mutations, defects and weaknesses that are being supported by the efforts and support of others.

Hey, I am not trying to be cynical, overly critical, or negative, I get it, my own line would probably not be here. My dad would not have made it through childhood with his eyesight and my sister would not have made it more than a few days after birth. I had Lasix eye surgery myself and would have been at a disadvantage assuming I was born at all. This unnatural inclusion we support and extend to our society, the opposite of natural selection that has built our very survivability historically, is accelerating every single day with every dose of anti-biotics, with each life saving operation, every set of eye glasses, each assisted pregnancy, C-section, and each assisted living intervention and resuscitation that takes place.

And look, I am all for it. I am glad to be alive, have my father and sister, and know that a life saving antibiotic or operation is there if my children’s life were on the line. I think of how many contributions to society, art, science, medicine, culture and spiritual growth have been made by people and cultures who might not have been able to do so if they lived even 100 years ago, never mind 1,000 or 100,000 years ago. But this is just one side of the equation.

The other side that is seemingly magnifying this artificial process of human population growth is that of our modern technology and agriculture. Ever since we stopped the roaming nature of our small human communities and exchanged them for a stationary existence dependent on geography and crops which needs larger communities to tend it we have seen an exponential growth of our population and the need to keep pushing technology for us to do more, and more, so we can support all that we were creating.

This “civilization” process has essentially built a form of elective captivity that we all rely on and opt into each and every day. Our modern captivity along with the expansion of the variation in our gene pool devolves us into a weaker and weaker state with each generation as we become more reliant on the infrastructure we have built to support us and inflame the need of others to provide all that we now need.

So, what does this have to do with health and healing? It means that we have a vastly diverse genetic expression across our population that did not exist, or at least has not existed for long during the evolution of our species and now they breed and interbreed and live in the most artificial environment in history. Our lives are filled with essentially experimental conditions, exposures, stress, and proximity with others to produce the incalculable physical genetic expressions and reactions to all that this incredible combination of circumstances produce today.

What this means is that there are no, and there will not be again, any predictable or typical outcomes for people living in our society. There is no longer a natural human habitat or environment. Consequently, we will not know in most cases exactly why certain body changes, illnesses, diseases, mental and mood challenges come about if they do and even worse we will not have a standard of approach in dealing with them since the reactions to any given treatments or protocols and interventions will be as varied as the set of circumstances that led to their development in the first place.

There are no more rules in health and healing, just endless expectations. Where does this leave us? Are we doomed? No. The only option we have is to be proactive and basically live as if any and all diseases are in us or on their way now. We are not destined to be sick as many people believe but rather must live with the awareness that the environment is stacked against us. If we wait until signs, symptoms, or issues show up, it will be a lot harder get a handle on it and bring things back to a neutral if not optimal health and healing state. When and if things do show up that challenge our health and well-being we have to resist over simplifying our approach and think that some pill or single intervention will be the magic bullet that fixes our issues. That expectation will only guarantee a life long bout of misery as we chase our own ill-health tail in circles.

By looking at our lives, health and life style from a full and holistic perspective and try and support as we correct issues and overcome and eliminate what might have contributed to it in the first place, we have a hope of correcting the myriad of negative effects and promoting the incalculable and powerful healing mechanisms that lay in waiting for us to do what we need to turn them on. There is hope and the potential for greater health expression than most people believe possible but we will have to earn it, we will have to take daily regular action and accountability for our own health and well-being.

This is all great news for those who share our passion for learning and are committed to following a health promoting path that is as close as we can get to modern day natural living. This means holding a higher standard, not letting our guard down, protecting and teaching our children and supporting and strengthening our tribe together.

I for one am honored to be on this path with all of you! If we can be of any service, please do not hesitate to ask. After all it does not take a village, it takes a tribe!

When does exercising stop sucking!?!?!?!?!

Exercising sucks

It doesn’t matter how fit you once were or if you never exercised a minute in your life, getting into the groove and routine of regularly working out simply sucks. There is no magic to it not sucking, there is no way around it, no secret skip ahead to the good parts, nothing but going through the process and pushing through.

That said, the process and evolution of your fitness when we do finally get back at this thing called exercise will change along the way, and can and does get better if we keep our sights set on where we want to go with this.

Honestly, amazing things are just 6 WEEKS away.

6 weeks, that is all it really takes to get some momentum, see some results, hear a few compliments, change your blood tests, shed some pounds and get in functional shape and change your health parameters and potentially your future.

This is how it usually goes….if you stick to it:

Week 1...it drags, hurts, hits below the belt, makes us want to stop.... workouts feel impossible, legs feel like they are made of stone, flexibility is shot, old injuries complain with each move, new eating plans seem impossible, hunger hormones play tricks on us (don't listen to them!), food seems bland, drinking water is a chore, this is hard! You know where you want to go with this and you start to feel the satisfaction of DOING SOMETHING and energy starts to rise, even I slowly from day one so you keep at it. Can’t quit before you even start.

Week 2: Some stamina starts to build, sweat begins to flow, still getting sore, hunger is much less but we still eat when we should, food routine seems better, seems doable, sleep improves, energy improves even more, time to get to see the chiropractor, water starts to be easier to drink, and we think to ourselves, “this IS possible.” All in all, we see progress, so on we go.

Week 3: You get up on time, more ready to go, it is easier to do your workouts and even start to push a bit, your weight is dropping, clothes fit differently, face is thinner, people notice a change, less pain, better sleep, sex life is picking up, time to get that massage (you deserve it), eating is becoming routine, starting some good supplements, you feel the, "I can do this!" Momentum is a powerful thing so we use it to our advantage.

Week 4: Workouts are starting to be fun, motivation is picking up, you can set some times on the benchmark training days, extend your time or up your intensity, ad in a weights day or stress relief cardio set, change up the eating, do some intermittent fasting, some blenderizing, maybe a healthy meal replacement, you’re not as sore, maybe even more flexible, still dropping pounds and inches, strength is going up...You feel you are moving from good to great!

Week 5: You start upping the weights, getting strong and pushing harder, sweating like a beast, you get upset if you have to miss a workout, you start experimenting with those "I hate that move" routines, your eating schedule and menu is on autopilot, you need to go clothes shopping, everyone is asking you what you are doing, you start posting workouts on facebook, you can't imagine not feeling so good ever again. You need less recovery time, less chiro care, less massage, but that doesn't mean none as it is part of the deal, things are good!

Week 6: You are cranking, up early, look forward to workouts, invite others to join in, the light at the end of the tunnel that was once a pin hole is now a flood light, it is fun to PUSH hard in the workouts, you like the feeling of being sore because you know you pushed it, eating clean is second nature and you fell like CRAP when you stray, so you don't, your body is working well, feeling well, looking well, you are an inspiration to your family, friends and co-workers, your blood tests are better, your blood pressure normal, those "normal" aches and pains are almost forgotten, people are asking you what vitamins to take...and you can tell them, you are ready to map out the next 3 months of training, eating and health improvements and set new goals that you would never had even thought of 6 weeks ago....you are a new person and love it! You are getting healthy!

Can you picture it? Feel it? See it? Want it? Good, now DO IT!!! Let me know if you need help!

Internal friction

internal friction

Part 1 of 5

I am currently pursing my PhD in Health Psychology focusing on this process specifically, but I am not a psychologist. I am just your friendly neighborhood chiropractor and a mild mannered nutritionist who has spent the last 17 years working with people one on one, and now in large groups and programs, in three out of four of these categories I am going to go into with great success. I leave the psychology to the experts who deal with this type of issues every day, but I know that if you improve the body by working on these three categories, detoxifying and healing the cells, reducing hormonal resistance, and improving the mental economy the physiology will improve and much of the mental stress, strain, and mood issues that come along with this friction improves greatly. Again, I am all for stress management and avoiding stress when appropriate, but my ultimate goal, one that I research daily and am personally committed to, one that I live by and teach my children, is how to be healthy, heal when needed, and build rock solid resilience to stress.

Internal friction. That is the best way I can sum up how I see our body and system working as it slowly builds up tension or a physical dissonance to our physical and mental tipping point that eventually spills with ill health.

Mentally when we feel anxiety, or we find ourselves drawn to negative thoughts, self doubt and we start to get irritable, critical, and start feeling like someone else is running this show, like the thoughts and emotions we feel building are someone else's completely. I can only describe how it feels to me and attempt to translate how it has been described by patients and clients over the years in practice as a literal internal FRICTION that swells, grinds, confuses, tempts, distracts and can consumes us.

It is this mental friction that makes the insanity of addictive behavior seem logical or acceptable right before we do what ever it is we do, again, and again, and again. Whether it is eating sugar and processed carbs again, or taking that drink or that hit again, turning to abusive behavior or language and saying nasty things again, or suppressing our own thoughts and feelings to "feel" loved again, all the while knowing this is in no way good for us, clearly knowing that this is doing harm, and perfectly cognizant that we are literally and figuratively feeding this problem......again.

We can feel that friction when it begins. It can start slow and mild, almost unnoticeable, and slowly builds and as it gains our attention and we hope it will pass or we try and do something, hopefully something positive, that might calm that feeling and ease that friction. It can build or just crash your good day and squeeze your life joy by coming on so strong that the next thing you know you are in a mini internal panic trying to escape and avoiding it at any cost.

Sometimes this friction can change our personality right before our eyes, or slowly push as it alters who we are to the point that when we do finally see the issue, or when it is pointed out to us, we are blind to even the thought that this could be true, that this could be us. Sometimes we are reacting through this friction before we even know it is upon us, almost like a black-out drunk, it happens and all bets are off to what we do or what comes out of our mouth. Suddenly there are tears or harsh words, sometimes there is pain, other times you just find yourself off point, eating junk foods or finishing that whole pizza and skipping that workout or pushing that work off, ignoring your kids and wasting your day. Then we are left to make excuses and feel even worse than before as we reinforce that internal friction with more power to come back and terrorize us again.

This often seems like a completely mental process making us feel crazy, defective, and alone. Because in those moments we see the lunacy of our actions and feel that no one else can relate, that no one else really thinks these things or does this and definitely not over and over like I do. But they do. We all do at some point and to some degree, whether in thought, feeling or action, in some way that is unique to us we feel that friction.

As mental as it seems I think something physical sets this up and then sets us off. I know that thoughts can drive actions and physiology but I also believe that our physiology can drive our thoughts and emotions as well.

To be continued……
