Optimal Health for the 21st Century

  1. 1. Holistic Nutrition and Lifestyle: Optimal Health and Vitality Donald D Shrump Jr, CHEK Holistic Lifestyle Coach 1
  2. 2. 133,000,000 That is the approximate number of overweight and obese people in the U.S. and it is rising 10 to 50% Increase in Rate of Death from all causes when overweight 8/16/2012 2
  3. 3. Diseases Associated with just being Overweight • Coronary heart disease • Type 2 diabetes • Cancers (endometrial, breast, and colon) • Hypertension (high blood pressure) • Dyslipidemia (for example, high total cholesterol or high levels of triglycerides) • Stroke • Liver and Gallbladder disease • Sleep apnea and respiratory problems • Osteoarthritis (a degeneration of cartilage and its underlying bone within a joint) • Gynecological problems (abnormal menses, infertility) *Overweight is defined as a body mass index (BMI) of 25 or higher; obesity is defined as a BMI of 30 or higher. 8/16/2012 3
  4. 4. 8/16/2012 4
  5. 5. The BIGGEST problems with diets • Diet plans are not designed biochemically for the individual • Diet plans are not for your metabolic type • Allopathic approaches to nutrients, secondary concern for other organ system, dysfunction adrenal, endocrine, enzyme metabolism, etc. 8/16/2012 5
  6. 6. MOST RECENT DIET PLANS MAY NOT BE NATURAL FOR HUMANS The U on a Diet, Abs Diet, South Beach, Atkins, etc…all miss the problem with the way Americans view food, which is BEIGE, OVER COOKED, PROCESSED, PRESERVED 6
  7. 7. Schedule of Classes 1. Introduction - Questionnaires, Metabolic Typing, and Lifestyle Roadblocks 2. You Are What You Eat– The Good, Bad, and ugly in Carbs, Fats, and Proteins 3. You Are What How You Live – Stress, Hormone Imbalances, Circadian Health 4. Digestion – The Road to Health 5. Detoxification – Parasites, Fungus, Heavy Metals, Fluoride 6. Putting it all together – How to live a life of health and happiness 7
  8. 8. 6 FOUNDATIONS OF HEALTH 1. Thoughts/Emotions – only ~2% of 70,000/day positive and 92% of thoughts sub conscious 2. Breathing Habits – Diaphragmatic breaths stimulate parasympathetic nervous system 3. Hydration – 3% dehydration = 20% decrease in performance if life and sports 4. Food – you are what you eat! Eat for your biochemistry and metabolic type 5. Sleep – Sleep 8 hours to balance cortisol, recover physically and mentally 6. Exercise – exercise for increase growth hormone, posture stability, and strength 8/16/2012 8
  9. 9. Who are you? • Fear and Ego ▫ Fear that you might have to change and that is scary ▫ Ego says do what works and if it works a little do more • Being healthy is taking responsibility for one’s self. ▫ Don’t sabotage your life, don’t prostitute your body for work or anything/one! • Your ability to choose is a mental activity that directly influences your well-being because thoughts have energetic properties. ▫ You need to be ‘in shape to really think’ because deep thought requires that much energy • What you choose to eat and how you choose to exercise dramatically influences how you interpret life’s events and ultimately how you live. ▫ Are you a human being or a human doing. Sometimes just being in a place in your mind is the exact exercise you need that day. 8/16/2012 9
  10. 10. Mind-Body-Spirit Composition EVERYTHING CAN EFFECT ANYTHING! 10
  11. 11. Breath Test Take a deep breath 8/16/2012 11 How many breaths do you take in a min? Did you use your diaphragm? How did you do? Good breathing 10-12 breaths/min = 14,400/day Stressed 14-18/min=25,920/day Calm breathing 6-8 breaths = 10,080/day More you breath the more transpiration of water out of your body cause increased dehydrated.
  12. 12. Hydration • Drink ½ your bodyweight in Ounces of high quality water • =/> 300 ppm TDS • Hardness =/> 170 mg/L • pH 7 or Greater • Filter your Tap water and store in glass or stainless steel container • Top Brands –(Fiji, Vovic, Evian, Etc) RECYCLE!!! 8/16/2012 12
  13. 13. You are What You Eat! The Wheel Of Death! 8/16/2012 13
  14. 14. You Are What You Eat Organic vs. Commercial Produce Mineral Vegetables Fruit Magnesium -60% -90% Iron -80% -70% Copper -20% -60% Sodium -60% -90% Potassium -90% -80% 8/16/2012 14 You would need to eat >3x’s as much commercial produce to equal the Nutrients, Vitamins, and Minerals of 1 serving of organic produce! If organic is 2x’s as expensive has >3x’s the nutrients and zero pollutants, chemicals, and fertilizers, then how is it not worth it?
  15. 15. Secondary Nutrients • There are 5,000-10,000 secondary compounds in plants (aka secondary metabolites or phytonutrients) and many of them are ‘fat soluble!’ • The four categories: 1. Phenolics 2. Terpenes 3. Alkaloids 4. Sulphur-containing compounds 8/16/2012 15
  16. 16. GRAS – Generally Regarded As Safe 8/16/2012 16 To show what is being hidden from us and is right under our nose (literally!), consider these ingredients used in a natural strawberry flavoring, but are not disclosed because they are GRAS: Amyl acetate, amyl butyrate, amyl valerate, anethol, anisyl formate, benzyl acetate, benzyl isobutyrate, butyric acid, cinnamyl isobutyrate, cinnamyl valerate, cognac essential oil, diacetyl, dipropyl ketone, ethyl butyrate, ethyl cinnamate, ethyl heptanoate, ethyl lactate, ethyl methylphenylglycidate, ethyl Nitrate, ethyl propionate, ethyl valerbate, heliotropin, hydroxyphrenyl-2butanone (10% solution in alcohol), a-ionone, isobutyl anthranilate, isobutyl butrate, lemon essential oil, maltol, 4-methylacetophenone, methyl anthranilate, methyl benzoate, methyl cinnamate, methyl heptine carbonate, methyl naphthyl ketone, methyl salicylate, mint essential oil, neroli essential oil, nerolin, neryl isobutyrate, orris butter, phenethyl alcohol, rose, rum ether, g-undecalactone, vanillin, and solvent (3)!

  18. 18. 18 Note: This is a schematic, each location will have their own foods, proportions, and most importantly seasonality.
  19. 19. Oxidative Dominance • Fast Oxidation (Protein type) – balance with alkalinizing nutrients ▫ Calcium, Phosphorus, Hi Protein, High Fat, Low Carb • Mixed Oxidation (Mixed Type) – balance with some of each • Slow Oxidation (Carb Type) – balance with acidity nutrients ▫ Potassium, Magnesium, Low Protein, Low Fat, Hi Carbs 8/16/2012 19
  20. 20. Molecular Mimicry • Fluoride – US National Research Council finds fluoride to be carcinogenic to your thyroid, causing hyper/hypothyroidism, and other mental disorders • Soya – Phytoestrogenic = 3-5 birth control pills in soy infant formula, ▫ Accelerated maturation in females but without enough throidpyroxidase to convert T4 to T3, slowly metabolism and leading to early hypothyroidism ▫ Phytates cause tripsin inhibition meaning more protein breakdown • Gluten/Gliadin – intolerance ▫ inflammation of small intestine ▫ Leaky gut syndrome ▫ Gliadin appears to leukocytes (white blood cells) to be a retrovirus causing attack to synovial cells and rheumatoid arthritis ▫ Gliadomorphine chemically induced schizophrenia • Casein – caseomorphine chemical by product displaces serotonin and body down regulates serotonin production ▫ ADD, irritability, depression, aggression, anxiety, lack of concentration, chronic pain, restlessness or fatigue, nausea, obsessive-compulsive disorder, weight gain or loss, fibromyalgia, arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, heat intolerance and other syndromes. 8/16/2012 20

  31. 31. So Why Do Most Diets Fail? • We blame ourselves and not the diet - Many diets fail in the long run because humans naturally want to blame themselves for the short-comings of the actual diet plan. We tend to tell ourselves that, “the diet didn’t work because that one night I cheated and had ice cream, a beer, etc,” whatever, you fill in the blank. If the diet was truly for your unique biochemistry than you may not have the urge to cheat and you could be living a truly healthy lifestyle 80% of the time and the other 20% cheat without much changing in your progression. • Most diets are ‘Nutritionism’ or Multi-Level Nutrition Marketing Scams – Yes, everyone needs some sort of supplementation because even the best foods are not as nutritious as the used to be and our lifestyle may affect the absorption and assimilation of the foods we eat. • You MUST rely on food not supplements to thrive – Human will do anything to survive, but this course is about thriving and ONLY high quality foods for your type and specific for you are your primary concern. 8/16/2012 31
  32. 32. Metabolic Typing • Protein Type – Fast Oxidizing of carbohydrates ▫ Must use protein and fats to balance blood sugar ▫ Must supplement Calcium to balance acidity • Carbohydrate Type – Slow Oxidizing of carbohydrates ▫ Must stay away from fatty foods because it will slow them down more ▫ Must supplement Potassium to balance alkalinity • Mixed Type – Mixed/Changing Oxidation ▫ Must constantly balance meals ▫ Must remain in balanced acidity/alkalinity 8/16/2012 32

  36. 36. Macronutrient Chart Protein Carbohydrate Fat Food Source Meat, Poultry, Dairy Fruits, Vegetables, Sprouted-Grains Oil, Nuts, Meat, Cheese Molecular Structure Breakdown into peptides and amino acids Breakdown into sugar and starch Breakdown into triglycerides and fatty acids Metabolic Role The main structural ingredient of human cells and the enzymes that keep them running A primary source of energy for all living things, and structural component of plasma membranes A structural component of cell membranes, a source of insulation, and a means of energy storage 8/16/2012 36
  37. 37. Proportion Sizes 1. Don’t Stress Out about the sizes, weights, quantities, etc. 2. Concentrate on the what your body is telling you 3. Rule of Thumb: ▫ Protein = Size of your palm without fingers ▫ Carbs = Size of your Fist ▫ Fats = the Circular Size between your index finger and thumb 8/16/2012 37
  38. 38. Planning to Lose Weight • BREAKFAST – ORGANIC EGGS, FRESH ORGANIC FRUITS AND VEGGIES (ACCORDING TO METABOLIC TYPE) • SNACKS – CUCUMBERS, CELERY WITH AVACADO, NUTS, TUNA IN A LETTUCE WRAP • LUNCH- SALAD WITH PROTEIN, SPROATED BREAD WITH FREE-RANGE ORGANIC MEAT SANDWICHES (NOT COLD CUTS) • DINNER – JUST EAT PROTEIN (FISH, BEEF, PORK, LAMB, CHICKEN, BISON, FOWL) AND VEGETABLES, THEN BRUSH YOUR TEETH 8/16/2012 38
  39. 39. Proteins • Vitamin A and D are found only in animal fat  Beta Carotene needs bile to convert to Vitamin A • Cholesterol is an important nutrient ▫ Mother’s milk is 55% cholesterol (how much is in formula?) • Many Nutrients are better absorbed from or in the presence of animal products ▫ Ca, Fe, Mg, Zn, Cu • B6 is available mostly in animal products • Usable B12 is available only in animal product ▫ B12 is almost completely destroyed by pasteurization 8/16/2012 39
  40. 40. Carbohydrates • The only source of energy for your nervous system • Organic Vegetables, Fruits, Grains, and Bean up to 40X more nutrients and secondary nutrients • Eat mostly raw or lightly cooked to preserve enzymes and nutrients • Ground Vegetables tend to be high-glycemic, so choose lower-glycemic above ground plants • Fiber, both soluble and insoluble, assists digestion, elimination, and detoxification • Fiber, lowers blood fats, balances blood sugar, improves energy and immunity • Fiber should come primarily from veggies not grains 8/16/2012 40
  41. 41. Fats • Trans-fatty acid cause cancer and heart disease (hydrogenated oils) • LA (linoleic acid) and LNA (linolenic acid) must be acquired from diet ▫ From these two fatty acids, our bodies can make all the rest • Alpha omega -3 fatty acids balance the 6’s ▫ eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) ▫ docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) Cooking with Oils Always use unrefined organic oil No Heat (up to 120  F) • Flax seed oil • Borage oil • Hemp seed oil • Cod liver oil Low Heat (up to 212  F) • Safflower oil • Sunflower oil • Pumpkin oil Medium Heat (325  F) light sautéing • Sesame oil • Pistachio oil • Hazelnut oil • Olive oil High Heat (375  F) Frying, browning • Coconut oil • Ghee (clarified butter) • Palm oil • Lard • Butter 8/16/2012 41
  42. 42. Guess who ate ‘White Devils’? 8/16/2012 42
  43. 43. “White Devils”-Dr. Weston A. Price • Processed Sugar is considered a poison to most psychologists, biochemists, and endocrinologists much like cocaine ▫ Average American has 120 lbs of sugar per year • Processed Wheat Flour has higher glycemic index than straight sugar • Processed High Fructose Corn Syrup has causes metabolic syndrome by blocking insulin • Un-sproated Grains have Phytic acid that is present in the bran of all grains, the coating of nuts and seeds and inhibits the absorption of calcium, magnesium, iron, copper and zinc 8/16/2012 43
  44. 44. 8/16/2012 44
  45. 45. How Sweet It Is? • Acrylamide- browned potato sugar none carcinogen ▫ 0.5 ppb carcinogenic ▫ 400 ppb in a small French fry • Aspartame (Nutrasweet, Equal, Spoonful) – excitotoxin kills brains cells, systemic lupus, MS, Alzheimer’s ▫ Average victim had 3 diet drinks a day • Sucurolose (Splenda)-organochlorines are same chemical family as pesticide and nerve gas ▫ Attacks your thymus gland cause adverse side effects • Sacharrrin (Sweet n Low)- know bladder cancer causing sweetener 8/16/2012 45
  46. 46. Fat Facts • Year 1920 – heart disease becomes apparent in USA, 1912 Dr.’s suggest hydrogenated vegetable oils to blame, Lobbyists blame unsaturated animal fats ▫ 1910 people ate 83% of fats from animals ▫ 1970 people ate 62% of fats from animals ▫ Yet Cholesterol only up 1% • By 1970 Butter consumption down from 18 lbs to just 4 lbs per person per year • Yet presently heart disease and cholesterol linked to 40-60% of all deaths in USA ▫ Since 1970 refine vegetable oil, processed sugar, processed corn products, processed grains up 400%! • One would think if unsaturated fats from animals caused heart disease and high cholesterol than animal fat consumption would of gone up, but it has not. 8/16/2012 46
  47. 47. YOU ARE WHAT YOU DRINK? The human body is designed to drink 2 substances 1. Breast Milk After breast fed never need milk again! Comprised of 55% cholesterol, cow’s milk only 20% 2. Clean Water Top Brands –(Fiji, Vovic, Evian, Etc) RECYCLE!!! Juices  Raises blood sugar, fructose raises cholesterol  Lacks nutrients found in pulp  Lack dietary fiber  Pasteurization kills the juice and enzymes Alcohol is directly absorbed into blood through stomach  Raises blood sugar level  Replaces water in blood  Alcohol dehydrogenase enzymatic breakdown of alcohol produce acetate (a none toxin to your liver)  Metabolizing acetate shunts lipid digestion, or fat metabolism (1 oz alcohol = 20 hour shunt of fat metabolism) 8/16/2012 47
  48. 48. Female and Male Differences 8/16/2012 48 Lipogenic Enzymes Lipogenic Enzymes Lipoglytic Enzymes Lipoglytic Enzymes Female Fat Cell Male Fat Cell

  51. 51. Quick Review • Metabolic Typing Serving Sizes ▫ Carb – Fist is 1 serving ▫ Protein – Size of palm of hand ▫ Fat – Finger to thumb in circle (tablespoon) Example Meal-Protein = 1 Palm of Salmon, 1 Fist of Spinach, 1/2 tablespoon Pistachio (encrust salmon), ½ tablespoon Coconut Oil to cook it 8/16/2012 51
  52. 52. Celiac Disease (1 in 133 people reported) • Celiac symptoms include: ▫ Recurring bloating, gas, or abdominal pain ▫ Chronic diarrhea or constipation or both ▫ Unexplained weight loss or weight gain ▫ Pale, foul-smelling stool ▫ Unexplained anemia ▫ Bone or joint pain ▫ Behavior changes/depression/irritability ▫ Vitamin K Deficiency ▫ Fatigue, weakness or lack of energy ▫ Delayed growth or onset of puberty ▫ Failure to thrive (in infants) ▫ Missed menstrual periods ▫ Infertility male & female ▫ Spontaneous miscarriages ▫ Canker sores inside the mouth ▫ Tooth discoloration or loss of enamel ▫ Type 1 Diabetes ▫ Chronic Fatigue Syndrome ▫ Fibromyalgia ▫ IBS ▫ Eczema ▫ Sjogren's Syndrome ▫ Peripheral Neuropathy ▫ Thyroid Disease ▫ Dermatitis Herpetiformis ▫ Osteoporosis 8/16/2012 52

  54. 54. 3 Levels of Consciousness • You know you know (conscious) • You know what you don’t know (sub-conscious) • You don’t know what you don’t know (unconscious) 8/16/2012 54
  55. 55. Stress • Dr. Hans Selye’s Definition of Stress (1926) “Stress is the body’s nonspecific response to a demand placed on it.” ▫ Distress – negative stressors ▫ Eustress – positive stressors ▫ Neutrals – stressor that by themselves are neither positive or negative 8/16/2012 55 Most stressors fall into the Neutrals when the distressors are handled and not avoided!
  56. 56. Stress • No one can live without experiencing some degree of stress all the time. You may think that only serious disease or intensive physical or mental injury can cause stress. This is false. Crossing a busy intersection, exposure to a draft, or even sheer joy are enough to activate the body's stress-mechanism to some extent. Stress is not even necessarily bad for you; it is also the spice of life, for any emotion, any activity causes stress. (Selye 1926) 8/16/2012 56
  57. 57. Stress • What does STRESS mean to you? ▫ Money/Work ▫ Relationships/Marriage ▫ Home/Sustenance ▫ Nervousness ▫ Anxiety ▫ Sleeplessness ▫ Upset Stomach ▫ Loss of Appetite 8/16/2012 57
  58. 58. Dominate Primal Stressors 8/16/2012 58 Reptilian Brain Safety Sustenance Sex/Procreation Animal Affection Love Emotion Intellectual Tasks Thought Word Deed Creation 4 F’s of the Reptilian Brain Fight, Flight, Feed, Fornicate
  59. 59. Stress in Reptilian Brain Trait Instinct Human Desire Security Survival Territorial Financial Gain Personal Space Material Addictions Feeding Satiety Addictive Eating Emotional Eating Sex/Appearance Procreation (only when the above are met) Lust/Desire/Emotional Status Driven Procreation 8/16/2012 59 Who do you know that stresses about money or possessions? Who do you know that copes with life by eating or drinking? Who do you know that is lust driven or ego driven? Or Both?
  60. 60. HPA Axis •The hypothalamic-pituitary- adrenal axis is a complex set of interactions between the hypothalamus (a part of the brain), the pituitary gland (also part of the brain) and the adrenal or suprarenal glands (at the top of each kidney.) •The HPA axis helps regulate things such as your temperature, digestion, immune system, mood, sexuality and energy usage. •It's also a major part of the system that controls your reaction to stress, trauma and injury. 8/16/2012 60
  61. 61. 8/16/2012 61
  62. 62. Endocrinology Pineal Gland • Melatonin – Influences sleep/wake cycles • Serotonin – Influences sensory perception • Adrenoglomerulotropin – Stimulates release of aldosterone from adrenals • Pinealin – Lowers blood sugar, protects pancreas Pituitary (anterior) • GH – Promotes growth of all bodily tissues • TSH – Stimulates thyroid to produce its hormones • ACTH – Stimulates adrenal cortical hormones • PRL – Stimulates secretion of milk of mammaries • FSH – Stimulates activity of ovarian follicles & testes • LH, ICSH – Cause development of corpus luteum in females and stimulates testosterone in males Pituitary (posterior) • ADH – Stimulates contraction of blood vessels • Oxytocin – Causes uterine contractions, release of milk Thyroid • Thyroxine (T4) – T4 to T3 conversion increases metabolic rate • Calcitonin – Decreases calcium level in blood Parathyroids • Parathyroid Hormone – Increase calcium in the blood Thymus • Thymosin – Aids in growth and activity of T-cells Pancreatic Islets • Insulin – Aids transport of glucose into cells • Glucagon – Stimulates liver to release glucose Ovaries • Estogens – Activates female sex organs • Progesterone – Prepares female organs for pregnancy • Relaxin – Prepares female organs for childbirth Testes • Testosterone – Activate male sex organs Adrenal (medulla) • Epinephrine - prepares body for “fight of flight” • Norepinephrine – increase blood pressure • Dopamine – Dilates arteries, increase cardiac output Adrenal (cortex) • Cortisol – Active during stress, aids digestive metabolism • Aldosterone – Aids in regulating electrolytes & fluid balance • Sex Hormones – Aids in secondary sexual characteristics 8/16/2012 62
  63. 63. Thyroid Imbalance Symptoms Hypothyroidism Hyperthyroidism • Muscles stiff in morning • Feel stiff or “creaky” after sitting a long time • Heart seems to miss beats • Coughing, hoarseness, night-time muscle cramps • Nauseated in morning • Slow start in morning • Dizzy in morning or when moving up and down • Cold hands and feet • Sensitivity to cold, prefer warm climate • Hair scanty, dry, brittle, dull, lusterless • Flaky, dry, rough skin • Sleeplessness, restlessness • Poor short term memory • Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) • Hypercholesterolemia (elevated serum cholesterol) • Constipation, less than 1 bowel movement daily • Diminished sex drive • Gain weight easily, fail to lose on diet • Yellowish tint to skin on palms and soles of feet • Low pulse rate • Low body temperature, especially at bed rest • Low blood pressure • Multiple food allergies • Female: menstrual irregularity, excess flow, PMS • Pulse above 90 BPM • Heart palpitations • Protruding tongue quivers • Extended hands shake or tremble • Strong drive followed by exhaustion • Fail to gain weight in spite of good appetite • Erratic, “flighty” behavior • Protruding eyeballs • Warm, fine, moist skin • Irritability, nervousness, hyperactivity • Talk rapidly • Insomnia • Frequent bowel movements, diarrhea • Excessive sweating without exercise • Feel warm and flushed at room temperature 63
  64. 64. Testing Thyroid Activity • Basal temperature test ▫ Temperature check – under the armpit 2 consecutive mornings ▫ Hyperthyroid – above 98.2°F ▫ Normal Thyroid – 97.8°F to 98.2°F ▫ Hypothyroid – below 97.8°F ▫ 85% reliable near 100% with associate symptoms 8/16/2012 64
  65. 65. If left undiagnosed… • Acid indigestion • Acne • Allergies • Arthritis • Asthma • Atherosclerosis • Breast disease (benign) • Cancer (all kinds) • Canker sores • Cellulitis • Diabetes • Eczema • Emphysema • Gallstones • Gout • Hives • Hypoglycemia • Impetigo • Infertility • Insomnia • Irritable bowel syndrome • Lupus erythematosus • Depression • Migraine headaches • Miscarriages • Obesity • Panic attacks • Premature aging • PMS • Psoriasis • Respiratory infections • Rheumatism • Sexual dysfunction • Tinnitus • Toxemia of pregnancy • Urinary tract infections 65
  66. 66. How does this occur • Disease, stress, negative thoughts, fasting, semi- starvation diets push your body into conservation mode to heal, but gets stuck in entrainment in only 7-21 days • Increased estrogen level imbalance T4 to T3 conversion to activate metabolism • Fluoride in toothpaste, water, and dental treatments destroying your thyroid all together 8/16/2012 66
  67. 67. Emotion, Glands and Their Effects • Thyroid – Hypothyroidism ▫ Negative Thoughts - feeling victimized, unfulfilled, left out, “I never get to do what I want to do”, “when is it going to be my turn” • Thymus – decreased production of Thymosin to mature killer T-lymphocytes (T-cells) ▫ Long feelings of not safe or protected, attacked by life, fear others are out to get you • Pancreas – Hypoglycemia and Type-II Diabetes ▫ Feelings of rejection, anger, frustration, loss of joy • Adrenals – Adrenal Fatigue not Hypothyriodism ▫ Feeling pressure, 'on the go’, and never enough time 8/16/2012 67
  68. 68. Adrenal Fatigue • Stage 1 – The first stage, which is called hyper-adrenalism, is characterized by abnormally high cortisol levels and subnormal DHEA levels. With the high cortisol levels you may still have energy, perhaps too much, and you may not be sleeping well or restfully. You may be losing muscle mass because cortisol cannibalizes muscle for energy resulting in weakness. It may also cause moon face and weight gain around the trunk as well as fluid retention and glucose intolerance. Cortisol decreases serotonin levels which may cause depression, it also decreases melatonin levels which adds to poor sleep. It is also immunosuppressive which may result in frequent infections and illness. High cortisol can cause hot flushes in women which is often considered only an estrogen deficient symptom. Sugar cravings, confusion and muscle weakness may also occur. • Stage 2 –is where cortisol supplies have finally run low but have not run out yet. For a year or so cortisol and DHEA will hover in the low-normal range leaving you feeling tired and stressed, but functional. • Stage 3- is where cortisol and DHEA levels are low for most of the day leaving you with low energy levels. Common signs and symptoms of adrenal exhaustion include: inability to tolerate exercise, depression, dark circles under the eyes, lack of mental alertness, headaches, edema, salt and/or sugar cravings, feeling tired all the time, mentally and emotionally overstressed, light headedness, heartburn, low blood pressure, recurrent infections and trouble sleeping. 8/16/2012 68
  69. 69. 8/16/2012 69
  70. 70. Adrenal Fatigue Quiz • Tired for no reason? • Having trouble getting up in the morning? • Need coffee, colas, salty or sweet snacks to keep going? • Feeling run down and stressed? • Crave salty or sweet snacks? • Struggling to keep up with life’s daily demands? • Can’t bounce back from stress or illness? • Not having fun anymore? • Decreased sex drive? 8/16/2012 70
  71. 71. Rhythm Health • Circadian = 24 hour cycle – hormones, parasites, sleep/wake • Lunar = Monthly cycle – male/female hormonal cycles • Planetary = 3-4 months – EMF, Microwave, Digital • Annual = seasons – Day/Light Cycle, Fat Metabolism 8/16/2012 71
  72. 72. 8/16/2012 72
  73. 73. Circadian Health • Are you getting to bed on time? ▫ If you not getting enough sleep your health will deteriorate even if you do everything else perfectly ▫ Direct costs of not getting to bed on time  $15.9 Billion/yr due to decrease health, miss days at work, medications, etc.  $100 Billion/yr due to car accidents, industrial accidents, etc 8/16/2012 73

  82. 82. Why calorie restriction never works! Disrupts hormones increases insulin, cortisol which over activates sympathetic nervous system and adrenal exhaustion Disrupts enzyme activity decreases lypolytic (fat burning) enzymes and increases lypogenic (fat storing) enzymes Decreases muscle mass decreases metabolic rate Syndrome – X insulin resistance 8/16/2012 82
  83. 83. Skipping meals • Hormonal response to increase insulin because body thinks it’s in famine ▫ Insulin forces your body to store energy  If you are active you store energy in your muscles as glycogen  If you are inactive you store energy in your fat cells  Inactivity makes your muscles insensitive to insulin causing more energy to be stored as fat • Eating too many carbohydrates has same response • Skipping just one meal increases the release of lipogenic (fat storing) enzymes 8/16/2012 83
  84. 84. Digestion • Organs ▫ Appestat and Adipostat ▫ Mouth ▫ Stomach ▫ Small Intestine ▫ Pancreas ▫ Gall Bladder ▫ Liver ▫ Colon 8/16/2012 84

Appestat and Adipostat • Hypothalamus 8/16/2012 85 • 51 nutrients are needed to satisfy your appestat to tell you that you are full •Adipostat needs enough good fatty acids to tell you are full •Together these sensors will tell you that you are getting enough nutrients and fats Food for Thought: Processed food lack nutrients and fat, maybe that is why we over eat?
  86. 86. Mouth • Chewing – turns food into smaller pieces for the stomach • Saliva – mixes with food to breakdown carbs “Drink your Food, Eat your Water!” 8/16/2012 86
  87. 87. Stomach • Hydrochloric Acid 0.2 to 0.5 pH ▫ kills fungus and bacteria ▫ Stimulated by salt (not sodium chloride) • Pepsinogen to Pepsin ▫ Pepsin breaks down proteins into proteoses, peptones, and polypeptides • Gastric Lipase ▫ Emulsified fats (triglycerides) broken down to fatty acids and glycerol • Intrinsic Factor (Vitamin B12 Absorption) 8/16/2012 87
  88. 88. Small Intestine Duodenum • Bile and Pancreatic Juice alkaline the acid with sodium bicarbonate • 3 Proteases breakdown proteins further • Lipase (steapsin) splits fats • Amylase breaks down starches, dextrins, and glycogen • Nucleinases and Nucleotidases finish the protein breakdown to polypeptides Jejunum • 21+ feet long where all food is absorbed into the body • Final digestion of carbohydrates occurs in mucosa of villi • Free fatty acids are combined with lymph fluid to form Chyle which circulates to veins 8/16/2012 88
  89. 89. Small Intestine Vitamin and Mineral Absorption NEEDS: • Good Hydrochloric Acid in stomach for ionization • Sufficient Protein for amino acids in duodenum ▫ Charged ions of vitamins and minerals bond with amino acids and are absorbed with amino acids. 8/16/2012 89 IF YOU DON’T GET ALL YOUR AMINO ACIDS IN THEN YOU DON’T ABSORB YOUR EXPENSIVE VITAMINS!

Bodybuilder – dehydrated foods, powder, shakes 4. Pellet Man – Dehydration of body 5. Diarrhella – detoxify your diet 6. Flasher – food intolerance or inflammation disorder
  93. 93. Bacteria in you Gut! Facts • Good Bacteria produce B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, Vitamins A and K (potassium) • They also produce lactic acid as a byproduct that helps contract the muscles of the colon for peristalsis • Too much unfriendly bacteria disrupt peristalsis and back up your colon, which becomes toxic Probiotics • Eli Metchnikoff Nobel prize winner discovered the microfauna • Prevention of ▫ Colon cancer -amines ▫ Lower cholesterol -bile ▫ Lower blood pressure- ACE inhibitor ▫ Increases Immune System – increase IgA, lowers IgE, IgG, IgM and others ▫ Decrease Dental Caries ▫ Increase mineral absorption ▫ Decrease inflammation 8/16/2012 93

  96. 96. Problems with Digestion Other Problems include: • Acid Reflux – too LITTLE HCl is being produced • Flatulence – Too little HCl, food combining, legumes • Celiac Disease – chronic inflammation of the gut, stop eating gluten forever! • Ulcers – high fiber diet, test for H. pylori bacteria • Gallbladder – find fats/oils in feces, may supplement bile salts, wrong MT Digestive healing may include: ▫ Enzyme therapy ▫ Gallbladder/liver cleanse ▫ Colon cleanse ▫ Re-population of probiotics ▫ Eating right for your MT for 120+ days 8/16/2012 96
  97. 97. Digestive Health Actions • Drink 1-2 Glasses of water 15 minutes prior to each meal • Avoid processed foods and foods that are enzyme/nutrient deficient • If Digestion is poor, test for food allergy/intolerance • Use digestive enzymes as needed (HCL deficient) • Beware of Phytic Acids and Enzyme inhibitors in seeds and grains • Chew your foods until liquefied • If digestion is challenged, eat smaller meal more frequently • Whenever possible, start meals with live foods for enzyme support (salad, papaya, and pineapples first) • Avoid consuming more liquid than needed to wash foods down while eating • Avoid all stressful situations while eating ▫ Don’t watch the news ▫ Play relaxing music • Those with digestive troubles should NOT read while eating, vision is very energy demanding. Eyes are reflexively linked to digestion. • Good digestion depends on good bowel habits • Use unprocessed sea salt as needed, this supports HCL production • Exercise stimulates digestion and metabolism ▫ People who don’t move enough tend to get constipated • Avoid dehydrated food unless fully rehydrated 8/16/2012 97

  102. 102. Complications of Detoxification System • Impaired Detox Capacity ▫ You are what you eat ▫ You are what you absorb ▫ You are what you don’t eliminate • Sources of Toxins ▫ Processed foods ▫ Alcohol, caffeine, artificial preservatives, colorings, and flavorings ▫ Medications, hormones, antibiotics ▫ Chemicals from fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, etc ▫ Heavy metal toxicity from dental fillings, contaminated food and water • Poisons released in environment ▫ Over 550,000,000 lbs of industrial chemicals dumped in public sewage ▫ Over 1,000,000,000 lbs of chemicals released into the ground, threatening ground water ▫ Over 188,000,000 lbs of chemicals discharged into surface water ▫ Over 2,400,000,000 lbs of air emissions pumped into atmosphere ▫ Total of 5,705,670,380 lbs of pollutants released into our environment in 1998 ▫ The half-life of these chemicals are far longer than we think! 8/16/2012 102
  103. 103. Environmental Endocrine Disruption • October 21, 1998 an EPA advisory group suggested to screen 87,000 chemicals that cause disruption to human endocrine systems, but that was too expensive and they only tested 25,000. • (EPA/630/R-96/012 )February 1997 Special Report ▫ “A hypothesis has been proposed that certain chemicals may disrupt the endocrine system.” “Possible human health endpoints (ways to die) affected by these agents include breast cancers and endometriosis in women, testicular and prostate cancers in men, abnormal sexual development, reduced male fertility, alteration in pituitary and thyroid gland functions, immune suppression, and nuero behavioral effects.” (page 7) 8/16/2012 103
  104. 104. Environmental Endocrine Disruption • Estrogen-like pesticides PCB, DDE, DDT linked to Breast Cancer ▫ “…women whose breasted sequestered the highest levels pesticides were 10 to 100x’s more likely to develop breast cancer than women with lower levels.” (Living Downstream, Steingraber page 10-11) ▫ We believe it would represent a serious error in judgment to ignore the clear message from these combined studies published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute and AMA that estrogen/progestin therapy increases risk of breast cancer.” (Kuller J. Natl Cancer Inst 92(4):328-332) ▫ These cases of occupational exposure to pesticides provided evidence that these chemicals may be estrogenic. Subsequent experiments on lab animals unambiguously confirmed their estrogenic activity. Recent findings, in the observation of specific wildlife populations exposed to combinations of environmental chemicals, provide sufficient evidence that many of these compounds have hormone-like activity and may be causing serious reproductive effects.” (J. of Steroid Biochemistry. Molecular biology Vol. 65 (1-6) pp. 143-150 1998). 8/16/2012 104
  105. 105. Toxins in our Food • We allow over 10,000 food and chemical additives into our food supply • Average American consumes ~14 lbs. of additives a year • In addition to colorings, preservatives, flavorings, emulsifiers, humectants, and antimicrobials, we consume on average 120 lbs of processed sugar and 8 pounds of process salt (Do you know what your patients eat, Cheraskin 1976) 8/16/2012 105

Smoking ▫ 2 million preventable deaths per year ▫ Cigarettes kills more than AIDS, Heroin, Cocaine, Alcohol, Car Accidents, Fire and Murders Combined each year (Surviving the toxic Crises, Keller & Dworkin) ▫ Cigarette Smoke (with Cadmium and Nickel) destroys the conductivity of the electronic schematics of the body and the cells (Electrogenetics Biological Liquid Crystal Theory, Garnett) ▫ Cured Tobacco ( a proprietary process of adding yeast and sugars to tobacco) induces lung cancer (The Fungus Link, Kaufmann 2. Heavy Metals – Lead, Mercury, Cadmium, Arsenic, Nickel, and Aluminum ▫ Collect inside cells and disrupts their ability to carry out their functions ▫ Worse yet, it can cause the cells to act abnormally, increasing risk of cancer ▫ Cadmium, lead, and mercury impair 5’deiodinase causing thyroid dysfunction ▫ 1000x the amount of lead in our bones then 100 years ago 3. Chlorine and Fluoride ▫ Eliminate chlorine from ALL household items ▫ Most chlorine and fluoride found at bathroom sink, showering cleansers, shampoo, and the water! 8/16/2012 106

  115. 115. Putting It All Together 8/16/2012 115
  116. 116. Exercise Anabolic-accumulating: • Tissue building • Facilitates digestion/elimination • Energy accumulating • Learning/growth optimized • Resistance training facilitates when rest is adequate • Facilitates growth and repair after exercise or physical stress Catabolic-spending: • Tissue destructive • Retards digestion/elimination • Debilitates learning! • Injury repair: • Removing the old to make room • for the new! • Energy spending • Aerobic training facilitates 8/16/2012 116 Resistance Training = Anabolic Aerobic Cardio = Catabolic
  117. 117. IF You are trying to lose weight, what is the first thing people want to do? • For some reason everyone wants to start with the easy aerobic cardio ▫ Average overweight person is losing 1 lb. of muscle each year ▫ Average obese person is losing 2 lbs. of muscle each year 8/16/2012 117 • These people may actually train their bodies to store more fat, turn protein into fat, and gain weight after initial loses. No wonder some many people fail!
  118. 118. Why does this happen? 8/16/2012 118
  119. 119. More Physiological Stress = Easier Modes of Working Out • High level physiological loads (as determined from questionnaires) needs only low level intensity work outs, or working in! ▫ Zone Exercises ▫ Tai Chi ▫ Qigong ▫ Yoga • Moderate level physiological loads can do general strengthening resistance training ▫ Posture correction ▫ Core activation training ▫ Hypertrophy weaken muscle training ▫ Moderate interval cardiovascular training • Low level physiological loads can benefit from high intensity training ▫ Total body strength training ▫ Supersets ▫ High intensity circuits ▫ High intensity interval cardiovascular training 8/16/2012 119
  120. 120. Parasympathetic Nervous System Exercises • Breathing – correct breathing requires mental control when moving, so learn to breath then learn to move ▫ Meditation ▫ Qigong ▫ Tai Chi ▫ Yoga • Strength Training ▫ Pilates ▫ Resistance Training 8/16/2012 120
  121. 121. Resistance Training • REPS, SETS, WEIGHT, INTENSITY, AND RECOVERY ▫ The number of reps of a weight and the intensity of the each rep will dictate the muscle fibers used ▫ The number of sets and recovery time between sets will determine the muscle fibers used ▫ 2 types of muscle fiber types  Fast twitch-strong, powerful  Slow twitch-endure ▫ You will go from one muscle fiber type to the other depending on the variables of your workout 8/16/2012 121
  122. 122. Lactic Acid Training • Resistance Training performed at moderate weights, higher intensities (faster), and little rest will cause a release of lactic acid • Lactic Acid production is linked to growth hormone release, increases metabolism, and huge increases in fat burn • VO2 max can be increased through challenging circuits faster than endurance training ▫ Imagine training for a marathon with minimum running? People are doing it! 8/16/2012 122
  123. 123. Balancing Act • When you are doing appropriate resistance training and interval cardio what else should you do? • Probably need a low intensity de-stressing yoga class or do some zone exercises to get mind/body connection. • Yogis love doing cardio, but lack resistance training, is this appropriate?  Everyone is different, but most would benefit greatly from building muscle tissue and stimulating more growth hormone release 8/16/2012 123
  124. 124. 8/16/2012 124
  125. 125. Adrenal • The adrenal type has fat that sags from the abdomen. This type craves salt or chocolate, has anxiety, feels the need for coffee or stimulants, suffers from chronic inflammation and tends to wake up in the middle of the night. This person needs foods high in potassium, calcium and vitamin C, like leafy greens, mushrooms, oranges, grapefruit and apples. He should also consume adequate amounts of protein (50-75 grams) to replace loss of body protein (muscles). Light and slow exercise is ideal for this body type. An adrenal body type is already in a state of “burnout,” and adding more stress through intense exercise will stress the adrenal glands even more. 8/16/2012 125
  126. 126. Ovary • Obviously, this type is exclusively found in women. Someone with an ovary type carries excess fat accumulated around hips and thighs (“saddlebags”),with a lower stomach bulge just beneath the navel. This type craves ice cream, cream cheese, sour cream or milk, often has pain in the lower back/hip area, suffers from hot flashes and lowered sex drive, and has problems surrounding menstruation. Ovary types need to consume lots of cruciferous vegetables, since they are antiestrogenic. They should also consume adequate amounts of protein (50-75 grams) to help trigger fat-burning hormones. Meats and fats consumed should be hormone-free, since environmental hormones can affect ovaries. Ideally, this type should combine light and intense exercise for maximum benefit. 8/16/2012 126
  127. 127. Thyroid • Those in this category will show weight gain all over the body rather than just in one particular place. This person craves sweets, breads and pasta, can suffer from depression, often has brittle nails, dry hair and hair loss, becomes tired in the early evening and has dry skin especially on the hands and elbows. The thyroid body type needs iodine and should consume lots of non-cruciferous vegetables. In addition, the metabolic rate is slow and cannot tolerate excessive protein. Going light on fats is advised. High-intensity, short-duration exercise is recommended for this body type. 8/16/2012 127
  128. 128. • Someone with a malfunctioning liver has fluid that leaks into the sac around the abdomen, giving a “potbelly” appearance. This type craves deep-friend foods or potato chips, has pain or tightness in the right shoulder area, often suffers from flaky skin or dandruff in eyebrows and scalp, has hot or swollen feet, shows a yellow tint in the whites of the yes, is irritable in the morning, and often has a tight feeling over the right lower stomach area or ribcage. Liver types need foods high in potassium such as cruciferous vegetables, and should also consume easily digestible protein sources (i.e., fish and eggs). High-intensity, short-duration exercise is recommended. Berg’s plan teaches readers how to attack the true cause of their weight problems: Unbalanced hormones. As he so aptly explains, you can achieve weight loss and better health after you help your glandular system operate in a balanced way. 8/16/2012 128 Liver
