HYPOGLYCEMIA occurs when fasting blood glucose levels indicate low fasting serum (blood) glucose. Hypoglycemia is caused by poor diet (heavy carbohydrates, sugars, and skipped meals), low cortisol levels, low adrenal function, Hypothyroidism, and drug side effects. Symptoms include headaches, fatigue, shakiness, irritability if meals are missed, and sweet cravings.

SYNDROME X or Metabolic Syndrome occurs when fasting glucose levels are high (this is a pre-Diabetic condition. In Syndrome X, there is usually an accompanying decrease in good cholesterol (High Density Lipoprotein, HDL), elevation in bad cholesterol (Low Density Lipoprotein, LDL), elevation in triglycerides, and elevation in uric acid.  This is usually the result of a couch potato lifestyle combined with bad food choices. Symptoms include fatigue after meals and cravings for sweets.

Maintaining blood sugar balance (neither too high or too low) is necessary to be healthy and without it, not only does one have a risk of Diabetes but also breakdown of adrenal, thyroid, gut, liver, and immune systems.

Diabetes is a TOTALLY preventable disease. Yes, totally. So why does the Center for Disease Control (CDC) say that between 1/3 and 1/2 of the U.S. population born after the year 2000 will have this preventable disease. One word – EDUCATION. Two words – PROFIT MOTIVE (of the junk food industry). Three words – LACK OF EXERCISE (kids today exercise their fingers on the computer rather than going “out to play”).
All put together – (1) the lack of understanding of what good nutrition is (2) the lack of affordability of healthy, organic food (amazingly junk food corporations are subsidized by government, making healthy food difficult or impossible for low income families) and (3) the sedentary life of many families – add up to the most serious, preventable health crisis in history.
Before becoming full blown diabetics (insulin receptor sites in the pancreas shut down), most people go through a stage of hypoglycemia (low serum glucose) before becoming insulin resistant (high glucose) and finally by the time the problem is diagnosed, it has become full blown diabetes.
Why not learn how to stabilize serum glucose before it is too late.

Antihistamines, acid blockers, and anti-depressants can cause or exacerbate cognitive impairment. There are many natural herbs and supplements that are more effective and miss the side effects of these drugs. Prescription drug use and misuse leads to hundreds of thousands of death each year. This is called iatrogenic death (physician induced). It is one of the top causes of death in America.

Keep your nervous system healthy and avoid the need for prescription drugs.

A popular “health” myth is that soy is great, soy is good. Traditionally, that may have been true. With  modern processed food, unfortunately it is not the case.

LITTLE KNOWN FACTS : (1) Phytoestogens (plant substances that have the same effects as estrogens), found in modern soy products, are powerful endocrine system disruptors (2) infant soy formula inundates the bloodstream with female hormones that inhibit testosterone levels associated with learning and developmental delays in boys (3) Soy fed girls go through early puberty (always a bad thing).

SOY DANGERS:

(1) Synthetic (toxic) vitamin D is added to soy milk. This increases the body’s need for legitimate vitamin D3.

(2) Processed soy protein produces cancer causing nitrosamines.

(3) Soy foods contain aluminum (toxic heavy metal) that causes kidney and central nervous system damage.

(4) MSG and other neurotoxins are added to soy to hide it’s unpleasant taste.

(5) Soy phytoestrogens can cause infertility and cause breast cancer.

(6) It is a myth that soy products increase your sex life, protect against heart disease, provide complete protein, or protect against cancer.

(7) Infants fed only on soy formula have receive the equivalent amount of estrogen as taking 4 birth control pills per day

If you carefully and painstakingly review the massive amount of  research on soy, you will reach the conclusion that the risks associated with soy far out weigh the possible benefits. The critical distinction that must be made is between the huge difference between fermented and non-fermented soy. The healthy Asian people who enjoy the benefits of natto, miso, soy sauce, and tempeh do so eating FERMNETED soy foods. It’s the un-fermented soy (containing genetically modified food or GMO’s) that is destructive to health and wellness. Sadly, the American public has been duped into thinking that tofu, soy milk, cheese, and ice creams are healthy.

Americans should eliminate soy products from their diets especially if they have:

– food allergies

-pregnancy

-kidney stones

-thyroid disorders

-autoimmune disorders

-fertility problems

-cancer

-brain damage

Men are notorious for not paying attention to their health until it jumps up and bites them. That is why the majority (90%) of retirement age men do not have optimum prostate health. It is now thought that most men who live to be 80 will have prostate cancer and not even know it. A pecan sized gland, the prostate can grow to be the size on a golf ball or larger. An enlarged prostate can put pressure on the urethra which carries the stream of urine and sperm and most people know that this is why men with enlarged prostates have to get up multiple times per night to dribble small amounts of urine; and, they also have sexual problems as well. What most people don’t know is that the prostate is involved in the immune system as well.

Dr. Brown’s fine tips on prostate health:
(1) Eat organic, eat healthy
(2) Get quality supplemental support with products containing Saw palmetto berry, Pygeum bar, Stinging Nettle leaf, Swedish flower pollen extract, L-Alanine, L-Glutamic Acid, and Glycine.
(3) Make sure you have at least 5,000 I.U. of Vitamin D3 per day along with healthy doses of Vitamin K2, Selenium, Vitamin E, with 1-2,000 mg of calcium with 600 mg of magnesium

Are you an introvert or an extrovert? Are you easy going or neurotic?
Well here are some personality tips that will help you in choosing the best way to exercise based on your personality.

The AMBITIOUS exerciser: The driven individual tends to do best when exercising alone weather it is at the gym, jogging, swimming or whatever. Establish your set of rules and set times for workouts and just follow YOUR lead.

The IMPULSIVE exerciser: These people are free spirits and don’t like to be held to schedules, times, and routines. They don’t make promises, don’t plan, and may not show up at all. These people are more likely to do exercises that give them the “runner’s high” and this buzzed feeling is probably the only thing that will keep them exercising.

The SOCIAL exerciser: “People persons” have trouble doing boring solo exercises and will thrive in aerobics or spin classes. They will enjoy bicycle clubs and swim clubs where they can see and be seen.

The LAID BACK exerciser: These non-competitive folks do not like to sweat and huff and puff. The will do well in yoga and golf.

The STRESSED OUT exerciser: These people need exercise more than anyone. Worry worts need stress and anxiety relief and greater emotional stability. You should have a plan and lay out your exercise goals and stick to the plan. Peak performance exercises where you go all out and achieve the maximum safer heart rate are wonderful for the type A personalities.

The ADRENALINE JUNKIE exerciser: Do I need to explain this? Extreme skiing, zip lines, bungee jumping…….you get the picture. Try to be a little safer and mimic the stressed out exerciser. It won’t give you the rush but you will live longer!
