Sweet potatoes, kale, broccoli, sunflower seeds, black beans, squash, cabbage, and almonds are foods we should eat daily for optimum health. Foods that should be avoided include fried foods, processed foods, junk foods, sodas (especially those containing corn syrup and “diet” ingredients). Take one day a week, for yourself, to do nothing but have fun.

Our office specializes in neurological, immunological, and endocrine problems.

Too much insulin flooding insulin receptor sites and not being able to bind (hyperinsulinemia) is a bad thing. Not only because of the risk of Diabetes, but because of other health effects including increase risk of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD). H0w does it do this? It increases risk of High Blood Pressure, damages protein synthesis and coagulation, and interferes with lipoprotein metabolism. Due to insulin’s relationship with  sodium levels, when insulin levels increase so does blood pressure. As insulin levels drop, so does blood pressure. Insulin Resistance also interferes with breaking down fibrin protein which is intimately involved with coagulation (clotting).

Since high insulin levels are also associated with lipid metabolism abnormalities (think high cholesterol, high triglycerides, low good cholesterol (HDL), and high bad cholesterol (LDL), it is wise to lower it to avoid taking statin drug with the know serious side effects.Insulin Resistance is also associated with adrenal, thyroid, liver, immune, gut, and cognitive dysfunction. This is a serious problem that leads to Diabetes. Diabetes alone is projected by health authorities to break the American health care system unless drastic changes are made to eliminate this PREVENTABLE disease.

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.

Take 35 IU’s per pound of your body weight in Vitamin D3 per day for optimum immune health. Vitamin D3 is the most essential vitamin for immune function, and most Americans are deficient. Of all the blood lab panels I do on patients who come to see me, 80+ % are deficient in Vitamin D. If you want to be able to resist all the bad viruses and bacteria out there, make sure you are flush on this critical supplement (actually it’s a steroid hormone mislabeled vitamin).

We measure Vitamin D levels on our standard blood panels for patients. Autoimmune patients need to have higher levels of Vitamin D than those with normal immune systems. Our office specializes in neurological, immunological, and metabolic problems.

Turn off all electronic media including computers and TV for at least an hour before bedtime. Go to bed at the same time every night and preferably before 11:00 pm (some research shows that the hours before midnight are worth twice as much sleep as those after midnight). Some people have trouble going to sleep and some people have trouble staying asleep. These problems usually are related to two things: blood sugar (insulin) function and adrenal health. We specialize in solutions for metabolic, immunological, and neurological health. Sleep is so important for EVERY one of these systems.

Who is at risk for eye diseases? Well, all of us. But some are more at risk than others. Your eyes are one of the 5 senses that bring you all of your sensory stimulation for brain and body health. They are important! Baby boomers, especially those over 60 are at higher risk for poor eye health and especially if they are:

Obese

Female

Smokers

White (Caucasian)

Spend a lot of time in the sun

Spend a lot of computer, TV, or video games time

MUSTS FOR GOOD EYE HEALTH:

(1) Eat all the different colored vegetables and fruits that you can (yellow bananas, green kiwi, red strawberries, orange carrots, green spinach, etc). Each color has different anti-oxidant protectors.Carotenoid vegetables (sweet potatoes, cantaloupe, and carrots)  rich in Lutein and Zeaxanthin are especially good.

(2) Make sure your blood sugar is optimal. At Brown Chiropractic Neurology, after a thorough examination and metabolic assessment, we look at fasting glucose, carbon dioxide, and lactic acid dehydrogenase levels to see if you are Hypoglycemic, Insulin Resistantce, or Diabetic. Diabetics are at high risk for eye diseases including blindness.

(3) Support your brain and heart. Vascular diseases causing  high blood pressure, neurological, and heart problems can cause obstruction to the blood vessels of the eye.

(4) Eat food rich in Omega 3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) for maximum eye health. Eat wild fish especially salmon and take a pharmaceutical grade Omega 3 supplement as well.

(5) Quit or at least cut down on smoking. ‘Nuff said.

(6) See an eye doctor for an eye exam, even if you think your vision hasn’t changed. They can spot things before you know about them. I recommend Dr. Kelly Jackson in Golden or Dr. George Mamalis in Lakewood.

(7) I personally hedge my bet and take a supplement with all the known  natural eye health boosters. You can too. Call us today at (303) 986-7600.
