Estrogen + Exercise + Fish Oil Regenerates Your Heart!

2019-06-28T14:41:04-05:00

This post explores how estrogen, exercise and fish oil regenerate your heart and keep it younger and healthier for years to come. You have heard the term “have heart,” which means to have faith and hope. But how do you regenerate and protect your actual heart muscle itself? Since heart disease is a major cause of illness and death as we age, you are going to want to listen up. Did you know that as of 2013, the leading cause of death in BOTH genders was heart disease. More people die of heart disease than all cancers. Death by heart disease often [...]

What Air And Sitting Do To Your Hormones And 4 Strategies to Protect Your Estrogens.

2019-02-06T13:13:55-05:00

Hormones don’t just go “south” from stress, poor food choices, or genetic bad luck. They are affected by what you inhale. And how long you sit. Even in your teen-age daughter or your sweet old granny. I recently did an amazing show with Dave Asprey from BulletProof  on hormones and the environment. Listen to it here. Air pollution exposures and lack of exercise have historically been linked to heart and lung disease. But now, both air pollution and excessive sitting are being scientifically shown, to adversely affect your estrogens. Gynecologic science has known that hormones rule reproductive and menstrual health or [...]

5 Things I Do Every Day To Not Get Breast Cancer Back

2019-04-03T10:03:42-05:00

I had breast cancer over 20 years ago. So my remission is my mission. There is a lot we can do besides finish whatever care we took, such as surgery or other interventions, and then believe we got it all and go out into the wild, cross our fingers, and wish for the best. Never guide your life choices by “we got it all” and then assume you are now safe. It makes sense to retweek your physiologic terrain, to make it healthier. It makes sense to identify and fix glitches that had allowed your body to grow a nasty cancer [...]

Eating & Exercise Timing To Lose Weight

2019-06-28T14:41:25-05:00

—A study finally proves exactly “when” to eat before exercising to maximize weight loss & better behaved fat cells.If you are like me, you want to get the most bang for your exercise buck because the rest of the day you have plenty to do and often much of it involves sitting. So I’ve often wondered, as I am sure you have, too, how to maximize the two E’s, exercise and eating. Would we lose more weight if we ate breakfast and then worked out a bit later? Should we have a green drink before we get into the car to [...]

Longevity In Motion (#58)

2019-07-30T08:13:58-05:00

    If exercise were a pill, we’d want to put it in our water. If it were a drug, we’d want a lifetime prescription. Berkson reviews three studies that drive home this amazing link between “moving more” and “dying later.” One study looked at the exercise habits of 55,000 adults who were monitored for mortality outcomes over 15 years. It was found that overall, runners lived an average of 3 years longer compared to persons who did not exercise at all. By now you are probably thinking that you hate to run or you can’t run, but more research revealed [...]

This research clearly demonstrates that modern fatness isn’t just a result of the ‘couch potato’ sedentary syndrome.

This research clearly demonstrates that modern fatness isn’t just a result of the ‘couch potato’ sedentary syndrome. This data shows the POWER OF FOOD as tools to keep our waistlines from getting the better of us! Okay, okay, everyone knows that obesity is an epidemic worming its nasty way into every culture around the globe. Public health circles (or squares) have mostly thought, understandably, that our rotundonous ways are because modern peoples have become gluttonous sloths assuming the shapes of their couches. Move over Forest Gump; sedentary is as sedentary does. Even the World Health Organization says that we are fat [...]

Brain Protection by Buffing UP Your Mitochondria

2019-01-17T19:10:38-05:00

Mitochondria are the energy packs inside cells. Turns out, based on rodent studies from Johns Hopkins, an enzyme protects these every-ready physiologic batteries. And exercise boosts these enzymes, especially in the brain. These enzymes are called SIRT3 enzymes. What does this mean for YOU? You want and need healthy mitochondria, especially inside your brain. And it turns out that what is good for your brain, happens to also be good for your heart. Exercise is one major solution. "Mitochondrial dysfunction"—well known to contribute to cognitive decline, mood disorders (like anxiety and depression), severe fatigue and heart disease—is "opposed" by robust EXERCISE. Also, [...]

Every step you take, every food you eat, affects your heart function, and rapidly, especially a Big Mac…

2019-01-04T18:17:16-05:00

Boy, it’s like having a Big Brother following us around and dinging our endothelial function (how well the most intimate lining of our blood and lymph vessels work) whenever we ‘sin’. If we eat junk food, lie around and snub exercise, or cram high saturated fat into our mouths, within several hours the critical function of the lining of our blood and lymph vessels (the critical fluid highways of our body) can be eroded by 50%! This is yet more research showing that a good diet does matter. And that the effect of how we live and eat, good or bad, [...]
