Inflammation foods cause weight gain and many other health problems

Inflammation foods.  Because of the Standard American Diet (SAD), chronic inflammation is a growing problem in the U.S.  Why?  Because chronic inflammation can lead to a host of serious diseases if left alone.  But the good news is that many Americans just like you are becoming more and more health conscious.  As a result, you are also much more aware of the problems caused by inflammation.  So here is a list of thirteen foods you should avoid.

Inflammation Foods:

1. Vegetable oils: Vegetable oils that contain omega 6 fatty acids are notorious for inflammation.  Increasing your intake of omega 3 fatty acids help balance your ratio between 3’s and 6’s and support low inflammation levels.  Of course, be sure to see my prior post on how to do this PROPERLY.  (Nutrients. 2016 Mar; 8(3): 128.)

2. Dairy products:In fact many people are unaware that milk and other dairy products trigger inflammation.  It is also important to note that milk is hidden in many foods including bread, cereal, cookies and so on. Not to mention  60 percent of Americans can’t digest milk (which is genetically normal, by the way).

3. Sugar: Did you know there is tons of research out there linking sugar to inflammation, obesity and chronic diseases? Avoid table sugar and foods with added sugar.  And by the way, this includes almost all processed foods. (Mediators Inflamm. 2010; 2010: 289645)

4. Processed meat: And by the way, processed meat can also cause an increased risk of cancer. (World Health Organization)

5. Refined flour: Sadly, refined grains are extremely low in nutrients.  Not only that, but there is a strong link between them and cancer, weight gain, and chronic diseases.

6. Alcohol: It comes as no surprise that Long-term alcohol intake can cause chronic inflammation and increase risk of cancer.

7. Trans fats: Of course the media has “saturated” the market with information on trans fats.  In fact you commonly find these harmful fats in  deep fried foods, especially and fast foods. Strong research shows they are strong inflammatory agents.

More Inflammation Foods…

8. Additives: Common additives like aspartame are very strong inflammatory foods. Sodas, diet sodas, and energy drinks contain high amounts of additives.

9. Artificial sweeteners: Research shows that artificial sweeteners increase inflammation, and the risk of type 2 diabetes.  See my previous article on this.

10. Gluten: Gluten ruins gut health and promotes inflammation. Avoid foods that contain wheat.  But be extremely careful.  Many gluten free foods are high in simple carbs.  These also contribute to inflammation and type 2 diabetes.

11. Agave: While many turn to agave as a natural non sugar alternative.  But unfortunately this is a mistake.  In fact, Agave is 90 percent sugar. It has been proven to cause inflammation, fast aging, and chronic diseases.  Unfortunately it has been touted as a natural sugar alternative.  But sadly, it is pretty much just sugar itself.

12. Peanuts: Peanuts cause a strong inflammatory response in the body.  They also contain aflatoxin.  Do you know what that is?  In fact, researchers use aflatoxin to cause cancer in laboratory animals.

13. Iodized salt: In fact unrefined salt is a better choice because it contains lots of minerals. Iodized salt has been proven to cause inflammation. But make sure you get plenty of iodine from foods like seaweed.

Everything about Heart Disease Cardiovascular Disease

Heart Disease Cardiovascular Disease.  In this episode of Dr. Andy’s Wellness Corner, Dr. Andy delves into one of the nation’s top killers.  Of course, that’s heart and cardiovascular disease.  In fact, Dr. Andy starts by defining these diseases.  He then goes into its prevalence both nationwide and in Washington state.  Additionally this also includes projections from the CDC as to where this disease is headed by 2030.

After an overview of some basic anatomy, Dr. Andy defines cardiovascular disease.  Understanding the anatomy is necessary to understand the nature of blood vessel problems.  This includes risk factors, common causes, and common treatments.  And of course, Dr. Andy goes into the common natural approaches to heart and vascular health as well as the enzyme nutrition approach.

Perhaps the most important thing Dr. Andy covers in this airing is the cholesterol myth.  Dr. Andy sites several large research projects that show there is no relationship between high cholesterol and heart disease.  In fact low cholesterol can cause some serious health hazards including cancer and a shorter life span according to some brand new research.  Of course Dr. Andy talks about the real problem, and why some health experts blame cholesterol.  Then Dr. Andy exposes the truth about how experts measure cholesterol, why it’s inaccurate, and how scientists make false assumptions to measure it.

Lastly, Dr. Andy explains how certain forms of heart disease can lead to heart failure.  Once that occurs he reveals the common necessary medical approach.  If you or a loved one suffers from heart disease, this is a must listen episode!

Low Cholesterol Shortens Life
Did You Know Low Cholesterol Shortens Life?

Low Cholesterol Shortens Life.  Over the past many years, there have been a number of studies proving the cholesterol myth is just that.  It is just a myth.  In fact these studies show there is no link between cholesterol and heart disease.  Among these studies are the Framingham Study as well as the Honolulu Study.  And, as I’ve previously stated, the Aboriginals have a high instance of heart disease and very low cholesterol levels while Switzerland has a low incidence of heart disease and relatively high cholesterol levels.  However, if you actually dive into the data behind the Honolulu study, you’ll find some startling figures.  Surprisingly, these statistics indicate that lower cholesterol may actually shorten your life span.

What’s most unfortunate is that the study concludes that lowering cholesterol does not affect your risk of heart disease.  While that is a great finding, one needs to look at the underlying data in the study to get to the real truth.  Surprisingly, if you look at that actual data, you find the conclusion is being somewhat politically correct.  Because the data actually shows a HIGHER MORTALITY RATE for subjects who had lower cholesterol levels.  As a matter of fact this includes those with lower LDL levels, which is the “BAD” cholesterol.  In fact several studies from medscape.com show that people who have lower LDL (“Bad Cholesterol”) levels had an increased risk of cancer.

Enzymes Boost Heart Health
Learn How Enzymes Boost Heart Health

Enzymes Boost Heart Health.  According to Nutrition Research, January 2009, specific enzymes supports healthy heart and cardiovascular  function.  In fact the study even showed that this enzyme even helps people who are at higher risk of cardio vascular disease (CVD).  In fact according to the research, this enzyme helps heart health by reducing several key clotting factors in the blood.   These factors are fibrinogen, factor VII and factor VIII.

Factor VII, formerly known as proconvertin, is one of the proteins that causes blood to clot in the coagulation cascade.  Meanwhile, factor VIII is an essential blood clotting protein.  Lastly, fibrinogen (formerly known as factor I) is a glycoprotein in vertebrates that helps in the formation of blood clots.  And while all of these chemicals are necessary; in fact we would bleed to death without them, they are problematic in abundance.

The Research and Our Approach

However, the exciting news is that the enzyme known as nattokinase shows much promise in reducing fibrinogen, Factor VII and Factor VIII.  Of course you would want to be careful not to take too much.  In fact, this why we use a scientific approach to supporting a healthy working body with enzyme nutrition.  Through scientific testing based on sound medical principals, Dr. Andy can identify the actual source(s) of stress in the body and help those organs work properly.  Therefore, this even includes both heart and cardiovascular function.

Are you concerned about your heart health?  Does your condition affect your work, play or family?  Would you like a more active lifestyle?  Or perhaps you’re worried about a loved one.  Give us a call and set up a consultation.  Let us help your body work properly by finding and addressing the source of stress.  In fact, we will take the time to sit down and talk with you about your suffering.  We will even do some preliminary testing to determine if you are a good candidate for care.
