  11. 11. WHY DIETS DON’T WORK• Majority of diets are not balanced (Ornish, Atkins)• Few tackle a major core issue- – insulin insensitivity• Short-term solution for a long- term problem• Few look at the whole picture or health as a lifestyle

  17. 17. INFLAMMATION“Chronic inflammation lies at the root of virtually everydisease process known to modern man – from weightgain, obesity & heart disease to autoimmune disorderslike lupus, MS and rheumatoid arthritis.” - Dr. Chris Lydon, Yale University Anti-inflammatory Lifestyle = Supplementation, Exercise & Nutrition

  19. 19. UNDERSTANDING HOW YOUR BRAIN & BODY WORK• Brain & body work off of glucose• Carbs are NOT bad – it’s the kind & amount• Challenge: Brain works off a Narrow Band of Blood Sugar
  20. 20. BRAIN WANTS US TO “ROLL” INTHIS NARROW BAND OF BLOOD SUGAR
  21. 21. BREAKFAST FOODSCereal, Bagel, Orange JuiceCoffee Shop Latte & Muffin
  22. 22. “STATE OF EMERGENCY”• SPIKE your blood sugar, brain thinks it’s ...DROWNING• Blood sugar too LOW, brain thinks it’s ...STARVING BOTH states are equally harmful to brain/body….
  23. 23. WHEN BLOOD SUGAR SPIKES• Brain releases a very powerful hormone• INSULIN is your storage hormone• It does it’s job very well!
  24. 24. 1 HR LATER - BLOOD SUGAR DROPS
  25. 25. YOU’RE STARVING! (OR DEAD TIRED)• Blood Sugar TOO low• Brain Triggers every hunger signal ….• Vending Machine.... “Get me FOOD!”

  27. 27. Insulin Resistance Leads to Diabetes
  28. 28. HIGH GLYCEMIC FOODS?• 85 to 90% of the carbohydrates adults and children are consuming in the US and Canada are considered to be high-glycemic.• Bread, rice, cereals, and potatoes actually spike your blood sugar faster than if you were eating table sugar.
  29. 29. WHAT ARE HIGH GLYCEMIC FOODS?• Sugar, Candy, Ice Cream, Cookies• White Flour, White Rice, White Tortillas• Most Breads & Cereals• Potatoes• Highly Processed Foods• “Instant” Foods• Fruit Juices
  30. 30. WHY IS ENERGY STORED AS FAT?• Muscle Cells have insulin receptor sites• Too much insulin in blood? Capillaries spasm 6 hours• Muscle Cells shut down receptor sites  become Insulin Insensitive BAD NEWS…. Fat cells are like Energizer Bunnies!
  31. 31. TO ADD INSULT TO INJURY... Fat cells duplicate, multiply & secretehormones which create more fat cells, which create more...
  32. 32. Spike Blood Sugar• Store energy as fat ----WAIST• “Insulin insensitivity”- difficult to lose weight• Uncontrollable eating and cravings• Emotional eating• Stress hormones are released long term (puzzle piece)
  33. 33. Blood Sugar too Low• Overeating• Low energy Dieting?• Moody, Irritable
  34. 34. GOOD NEWS! REVERSIBLE!• Keep blood sugar rolling between “band”• Slow - insulin• Muscle cells start re-generating insulin receptor sites• Fat cells starve (receptor sites shut down)• Type 2 diabetes is reversable REGENERATE INSULIN RECEPTOR SITES!
  35. 35. TAKE HOME POINT Don’t SPIKE blood sugar or let it go too LOWBoth are equally harmful to brain/body Adrenalin Cortisol

  38. 38. HEALTHY FOR LIFE 3 COMPONENTS SupplementationExercise Nutrition
  39. 39. SUPPLEMENTATION• All about CELL HEALTH• All health and disease starts in the cell• Yours cells get healthy-many lose 5-10 pounds• Our bodies are made up of how many cells?• Every hour cells regenerate• How many?• Philosophy: Get the cells healthy and then the cells can take care of the body
  40. 40. IMPORTANCE OF SUPPLEMENTATIONResearch of Dr. Bruce Ames, professor of toxicology at UC Berkeleyhas demonstrated that “a deficiency in any of the micronutrients such asfolic acid, vit B-12, B-6, niacin, C, E, iron or zinc, mimics radiation andchemicals in damaging DNA by causing single & double strand breaks,oxidative lesions or both”. In fact, the damage your system will endure from a nutrient deficiency is hundreds of times greater than any damage cause by radiation or chemicals.
  41. 41. THE WAR WITHIN OUR BODIES THE CELLS OF OUR BODIES ARE FIGHTING TO STAY HEALTHY AS THEY ARE ATTACKED BY FREE RADICALS. FREE RADICALS COME FROM: • STRESS • RADIATION FROM THE SUN Healthy human cells in culture Damaged cells after adding Similar cells when oxidation defense • ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION digested products mechanisms are • TOXIC CHEMICALS IN THE WATER from a fatty meal included • DEPLETION OF NUTRIENTS IN THE FOOD SUPPLY ARE WE CONTENT WITH LOSING THIS WAR AGAINST POOR HEALTH, OR WILL WE ARM OUR CELLS WITH THE NUTRIENTS THEY NEED?9 HEALTH & FREEDOM
  42. 42. SUPPLEMENTATIONEvery Day…  Take a High Quality Pharmaceutical Grade Multi-Vitamin  Essential Fatty Acids – 2 kinds filtered Cell is the building block of the body… where all health and disease originates
  43. 43. Athletes need More than basics• Optimal levels of Calcium and Magnesium• Grape seed extract with C -50 times more potent than Vit. E & 20 times more than Vit. C• Anti inflammatory properties/ Anti Allergen (300mg.plus)- #1• 60 mg. pharmaceutical gel form CoQ10-#2
  44. 44. Vitamin D• Current research• Northern countries-Winter/Summer• Non-athletes needs• Athletes needs• The sun’s role
  45. 45. Glucosamine• Shown to increase joint fluid and actually rebuild cartilage• Important for any high impact athletes or dancers• Combines with an anti-inflammatory like Tumeric for maximum effect-6 hours• Chondroitin shown to not add much to Glucosamine
  46. 46. Pharmaceutical vs. Food• Cellular nutrition: must provide the cell with all of the micronutrients at optimal levels thru medical literature• A wide array of anti-oxidents, supporting minerals and B-cofactors• Potency, Purity, Bio-availibilty, no banned substances (guarantee)
  47. 47. BUT WHAT ABOUT IF YOU EAT VERY HEALTHY?• 1900’s versus today• Over farming, fertilization methods(N.A.vs .Eur)• Correct balance vs. NPK fertilizers to have proper growth and resist disease• Nutrition is no longer in the soil How many Oranges????!!
  48. 48. AM I RECEIVING THE NUTRIENTS I NEED? More than half of all Americans consume significantly less than the recommended intake for calcium, chromium, copper, folic acid, vitamin B6, and vitamin E. 1 Similarly, studies show that well over 50 percent of children do not get recommended daily allowance (RDA) levels of many nutrients.2 1. The Great American Nutrient Gap, Dr. Melvin Werbach 2. According to Dr. Zoltan P. Rona, author of Childhood Illness and the Allergy Connection Consider what you must eat to receive an optimal amount of 400 IU of vitamin E, one of the most powerful oxidation defense agents for conquering free radicals: Food To obtain 400 IU Spinach 33 pounds Sunflower seeds 1.2 pounds Wheat germ 5.2 pounds Almonds 2.2 pounds Safflower oil 1 quart ARE WE USING SUPPLEMENTATION AS A SOLUTION?10 HEALTH & FREEDOM
  49. 49. HOW DO YOU SUPPLEMENT?• Twice a Day-meals• Why? – Body comprised of ? cells – Every hour ? cells renew **If necessary vitamins, minerals & antioxidants are not available, cells will SUBSTITUTE What does this cause?
  50. 50. WHAT I GET ALL MY CLIENTS ON AS A MINIMUM…• Pharmaceutical vs. Food Multi-Vitamin – ODI vs. RDA (1930’s) – RDA 30iu. E ODI 400iu. E – Prevent and reverse degenerative disease process – Drugs vs. pizza• Pharmaceutical Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s) – Fish (molecularly distilled-toxin free) – Plants (proper mix of Omega 3,6 &9) (combination best)
  51. 51. “Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements” by Lyle McWilliams, MSc, FP• Top 1500 Products Compared• “5 Star Gold Standard of Achievement” Award for “CAPPS”*• Highest Quality, Safe & Effective• Fifth edition 2011• Recommend the #1 Gold Standard*CAPPS = Completeness, Absorption, Potency, Purity & Safety
  52. 52. HEALTHY FOR LIFE 3 COMPONENTS SupplementationExercise
  53. 53. INACTIVITY AND INSULIN INSENSITIVITY• Lack of physical activity increases insulin insensitivity• Remember the insulin receptors?
  54. 54. EXERCISE• Improves Insulin Sensitivity• How much?• What type?• How hard?• Specific to you FUN!
