NEW DISCOVERY-Fasting Prevents Dementia!

Greetings Angels,

This just in from one of my favorite sources, Dr. Mercola-

New research suggests fasting triggers a variety of health-promoting hormonal and metabolic changes that may help prevent age-related brain shrinkage and other chronic and debilitating diseases
Fasting—quantified as consuming somewhere between 500 and 800 calories in a day—has been shown to reduce growth factor—a hormone linked with cancer and diabetes—LDL cholesterol, and inflammation levels, among other things. The protective processes triggered in your brain when suddenly decreasing your food intake are similar to the beneficial effects of exercise
Calorie restriction appears to protect your brain cells and make them more resilient against stress. This protective effect is in part due to fasting’s effect on leptin and ghrelin; two hormones involved in appetite regulation
While it’s long been known that restricting calories in certain animals can increase their lifespan by as much as 50 percent, more recent research suggests that sudden and intermittent calorie restriction appears to provide the same health benefits as constant calorie restriction, which may be helpful for those who cannot successfully reduce their everyday calorie intake
In the US, six of the top 10 sources of calories are carbohydrates from sugars and grains, and this is a major reason why so many Americans are overweight. They’re simply eating far too many sugars. It’s very important to restrict carbs when doing a calorie restrictive diet and replace them with healthy high quality fats

Could fasting for two days a week prevent age-related brain shrinkage, heart disease, diabetes, and possibly even cancer? New research suggests that fasting triggers a variety of health-promoting hormonal and metabolic changes. Fasting – quantified as consuming somewhere between 500 and 800 calories in a day – has been shown to reduce:

Growth factor – a hormone linked with cancer and diabetes
“Bad” LDL cholesterol
Cholesterol
Inflammation levels
Overall, it also helps lessen damage from free radicals (dangerous molecules that cause damage in your body).Furthermore, according to the featured article in the Daily Maili:

“Suddenly dropping your food intake dramatically… triggers protective processes in the brain… similar to the beneficial effect you get from exercise.This could help protect the brain against degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.”

Intermittent Fasting: A Good Alternative to Constant Calorie Restriction

While it’s long been known that restricting calories in certain animals can increase their lifespan by as much as 50 percent, more recent research suggests that sudden and intermittent calorie restriction appears to provide the same health benefits as constant calorie restriction.

This is good news, as it may be easier to do for some people who cannot commit to chronically restrictive diet.

The Daily Mail reports:

“Professor Mattson is one of the pioneers of research into fasting – a few years ago he made a breakthrough when he found rats could get nearly all the benefits of calorie restriction if the scientists only cut back their calories every other day.

On the next day the rats could eat as much as they liked and yet they showed the same benefits as rats on a low-calorie regimen all the time. Suddenly it looked as if humans could benefit from a form of calorie restriction regimen that, unlike daily restriction, is feasible to follow.

Now results of other trials are revealing the benefits.

In one study, reported last year in the International Journal of Obesity, a group of obese and overweight women was put on a diet of 1,500 calories a day while another group was put on a very low 500-calorie diet for two days, then 2,000 calories a day for the rest of the week. Both groups were eating a healthy Mediterranean-style diet. ‘

We found that both lost about the same amount of weight and both saw a similar drop in biomarkers that increase your risk of cancer,’ says Dr Michelle Harvie, a dietitian at Manchester University who led the research.

‘The aim was to find which was the most effective and we found that the women in the fasting group actually had a bigger improvement in sensitivity to insulin.’ Improved insulin sensitivity means better control of blood sugar levels.”

While I don’t generally promote calorie restriction, it is an important piece of the puzzle, and this type of intermittent fasting may be helpful for many – especially in light of the compelling research supporting calorie restriction. Remember, fasting does not mean abstaining from ALL food, but rather a dramatic reduction of calorie intake.

You need to cut your daily calories at least in half, but can go as low as 500-800 calories a day. The KEY to successful calorie restriction, however, lies in which calories you cut, which I will review in a moment. But first, let’s take a look at some of the health benefits of intermittent fasting.

The Surprising Health Benefits of Calorie Restriction

Interestingly, some of the mechanisms largely responsible for weight loss and diabetic control when fasting are also the ones responsible for the benefits to your brain. Research suggests that calorie restriction can protect brain cells and make them more resilient against stress. This protective effect is in part due to fasting’s effect on leptin and ghrelin; two hormones involved in appetite regulation. According to Professor Mattson, these hormones are also involved in the process of renewing brain cells – especially in the hippocampus – when you are not overweight.

Your hippocampus is the area of your brain where most of your memory functions are located, and there’s a strong relationship between the size of your hippocampus and memory performance.

According to the featured articleii:

“If you start putting on weight, levels of ghrelin drop and brain cell replacement slows. ‘The effect is particularly damaging in your 40s and 50s, for reasons that aren’t clear yet,’ he [Professor Mattson] says. ‘Obesity at that age is a marker for cognitive problems later.’ The good news is that this brain-cell damage can be reversed by the two-day fasting regime, although so far Professor Mattson has shown this only in rats. A human trial is starting soon. There is reason to think it should work.

Fasting every other day had a striking effect on people with asthma in a small study he ran a few years ago. ‘After eight weeks they had lost eight percent of their body weight, but they also benefited from the ability of calorie restriction to reduce inflammation. Tests showed that levels of inflammation markers had dropped by 90 per cent. As levels came down, their breathing became much easier,’ says Professor Mattson.”

There is one important caveat, however. Mattson’s research showed that symptoms returned about two weeks after quitting the intermittent fasting, so it’s really a lifestyle commitment, not a temporary fix. Some can handle intermittent fasting long-term whereas others might find it too challenging. Still, it’s an option to consider if you’re having health issues or weight problems.

Fasting and Exercise: Are They Compatible?

I’ve previously interviewed fitness expert Ori Hofmekler on the issue of fasting and exercise. According to Ori, fasting also has the surprising benefit of helping you reconstruct your muscles when combined with exercise. This is due to an ingenious preservation mechanism that protects your active muscle from wasting itself. In a nutshell, if you don’t have sufficient fuel in your system when you exercise, your body will break down other tissues but not the active muscle, i.e. the muscle being exercised.

That said, neither Ori nor I advocate starvation combined with rigorous exercise. It’s important to be sensible. And you need to consume sufficient amounts of protein in order to prevent muscle wasting. Also, while there’s more science in support of calorie restriction than any other diet in the world today, there are side effects to chronic calorie restriction, such as decreased thyroid function and decreased testosterone.

In my own personal experimentation, I have definitely fasted too long and lost loads of muscle mass. So now I tend to use fasting if I have consumed foods that caused me to gain a few extra pounds. I will skip my breakfast and exercise fasting. My next meal will be lunch, and then I’ll have dinner. This has worked quite well and allows me to easily drop a few pounds and get my body fat into the ideal range.

Cut the Correct Calories…

One important fact that many tend to gloss over or ignore entirely when it comes to calorie restriction is which type of calories to restrict. From a biological standpoint, the important part is not really how many calories you eat per day; it’s about getting the right nutrients. It’s important to realize that all calories are NOT created equal, and will not have identical effects your weight or health. Their value depends on the types of food (nutrients) they’re attached to.

In the US, six of the top 10 sources of calories are carbohydrates from sugars and grainsiii, and this is a major reason why so many Americans are overweight. They’re simply eating far too many sugars. It’s very important to restrict carbs when doing a calorie restrictive diet. Your body does not require sugars for optimal health, but it does require protein and fats.

When you cut out the sugars and carbs it is wise to replace them with high quality non-processed fats. Some of my favorites include organic grass-fed raw butter, eggs, coconut oil, avocados, and almonds.

There’s very compelling evidence showing that calories from fat are far more beneficial for your health than calories from carbohydrates. And fear not… It’s already been well established that stearic acid (found in cocoa and animal fat) has no effect on your cholesterol levels at all, and actually gets converted in your liver into the monounsaturated fat called oleic acid. The other two, palmitic and lauric acid, do raise total cholesterol. However, since they raise “good” cholesterol as much or more than “bad” cholesterol, you’re still actually lowering your risk of heart disease. And there are additional benefits.

Lauric acid (as from coconut oil) has shown to boost thyroid hormone activity along with the body’s metabolic rate. This is obviously a huge advantage to those interested in weight loss or those who suffer from underactive thyroid.

I couldn’t encourage you more to implement this program. It has radically improved my personal confidence in using diet choices to achieve high level wellness and optimal body fat. Cutting down on your grains and sugars, replacing them with high quality fats and skipping some meals, especially before exercise, seem to be a powerful combination to help you Take Control of Your Health.

Free 3 day Green Smoothie Challenge- Join me?

Greetings Angels,
Well, I just got this in from my good friend Tera Warner and I am so thrilled.
I wanted to share with you what she wrote, because you can tell, it’s from the heart!

From Tera Warner-

.We have coming up another round of our much-loved,
very successful, 21-Day Green Smoothie Detox.

I COULD send you a bunch of emails to
promote and talk about the pain of a toxic body
and how you can make it all better IF you sign up
for our upcoming 21-Day Green Smoothie Detox.

But if I do that…

…then there will be a woman, or a man, who
gets that email, is feeling terrible in his or her
skin who cannot afford that detox.

And they will cave in feeling stopped and more
hopeless than before my email arrived.

So let’s consider another model…

…let’s say that I invited you to invite the members of your
community, to jump on board a totally free, 3-day
green smoothie challenge and in the name of spring,
of more energy, of better health and concentration, I
invited them to raise a green glass with me and do
their best to chug a whole lot of chlorophyll for 3 days.

JUST CLICK HERE 🙂

I’d give them all the recipes.

I’d give them a great, little planner, inspirational
emails and all the support they need to COMPLETELY
transform their health and energy in just three days
using common fruits and vegetables!

THEN, if they liked it, if they wanted more, they could
come on board the 21-Day Green Smoothie Detox and
take it further with us.

And if they can’t or it’s not right, well, they’ve
just learned everything they need to know to transform
their lives ALL ON THEIR OWN!

So everyone wins.

Love and abundance,

Tera

So without further ado, care to join me on a 3 day green smoothie challenge?

FASTING?

Greetings Angels,

I got a lot of great feedback from the post about Hydration from my dear friend Loren Lockman. Loren is coming to Los Angeles and will be speaking at LEAF this Friday evening.
11938 W. Washington Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90066
(310) 397 0700
from 6-8pm
As well as Au Lac Weds.

I will definitely be there and would love you to say hi if you can make it?
Loren just gave me another wonderful article to share with you. As I am gearing up to interview Loren especially for you, please make sure to leave your questions here! I will do my best to get all your questions answered. And don’t worry, I didn’t forget, I still have the ones from the hydration article. 🙂
Loren is an expert on body optimization, anti-aging, detoxing, healing and much more.
I hope you will find this article as fascinating as I did!

FASTING
More than twenty years ago, when I first heard the term “water-only fasting,” I had been quite ill with chronic fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, candidiasis, sinusitis, and 57 allergies. The idea of going weeks without food sounded both radical and potentially harmful. Today, having done more than 3 dozen fasts of one to three weeks and having taken more than 2000 others through similar processes of up to nine weeks, I see this natural process as the single most potentially-beneficial thing that most people can do.

I’ll do my best to explain, briefly, why I believe this, what fasting is about, and what can happen via fasting.

It’s important to understand that we are affected by the toxins around us both from the outside and from others manufactured in our own bodies. Regardless of the source, though, these various toxins have the ability to poison the body and make proper functioning impossible.

An exacerbating factor is the significant dehydration which is common today, regardless of how much water one drinks. Water is the universal transport medium, and regardless of the preferred channel of elimination for a particular toxin at any given time, lack of proper hydration will thwart the body’s best efforts to cleanse itself. At the same time, the body’s toxicity makes it hard to properly hydrate, creating a vicious circle.

Ultimately, the human body is both self-healing and self-cleansing. The best we can is to learn how to get out of the way, so that the body can do what only the body can do.

But doesn’t this require nutritional support? While it’s true that a starving body has a hard time meeting the extraordinary needs of cleansing and healing, fasting is not starving. What differentiates the two is the simple fact that when we are fasting, the body is getting all of its needs met by consuming reserves, ie, long-term fat stores, as well as anything material that doesn’t belong, including tumors, lipomas, cysts, etc.

We often forget that this is why animals have most fat cells in the first place – to provide food when food is not available in nature (due to floods, droughts, fires, etc.)

It’s also important to understand that processing food through our system each day requires roughly 50% of the body’s daily energy. When we are eating, the energy to cleanse and heal is simply not available. When we give the body a chance to really cleanse and heal itself through fasting properly and long enough, amazing things happen. At my center, we’ve had 100% success in eliminating both hypertension and type two diabetes as well as amazing success with MS, arthritis, poor vision…and almost every condition. Unlike virtually anything else one can do, we see universally excellent results because we are just getting out of the way so that the body can heal itself.

It’s also important to point out that going more than 5 days or so without eating is potentially dangerous given typical levels of toxicity and dehydration, and should be done with experienced supervision, and ideally in an environment that encourages rest and healing. Under these optimal circumstances, there is nothing more powerful than water-only fasting, and if you are committed to your health and vitality, you may want to give this amazing practice a try.

This is some fantastic information, be sure to share this with the angels in your life!

Why this cleanse won’t work for you (important!)

Dearest Angels,

Over the last few days I’ve been telling you
about how great my friend Yuri’s Total Wellness
Cleanse program truly is.

Learn more about here 🙂 Get Your $100 Discount <————– Check it out

But what I haven't told you is that this cleanse
might not be right for you. In fact, there are a
lot of people that are not suitable for the Total
Wellness Cleanse.

Just the other day, I asked Yuri the
question…"Who is this cleanse for?" and here's
what he told me…

"It's not for people who are looking for gimmicky
quick fixes, ridiculous detox pills, or unhealthy
master cleanse-like solutions that produce
absolutely no long-term health or weight loss
benefit!"

He continued…

"Our cleanse is ONLY for those who are serious
about their HEALTH. It is for those who value
learning more about their health and how their
body functions.

The big problem nowadays is that people are so
focused on losing weight that they forget about
how their decisions are affecting their health.

In my 12 years of helping people transform their
lives, I have always focused on improving the
health of the individual – it just so happens
that weight loss, having more energy, and eating
healthier are inevitable side effects."

What Yuri said is EXACTLY why I support and
endorse his Total Wellness Cleanse program…

It's not just another set of pills or short-term
fix that does nothing for you in the long run.

On the contrary, his cleansing diet is just that
– a cleansing DIET. It is a whole food-based
approach that will show you step-by-step how to
eat to cleanse your body of years of toxic
build-up.

I understand you probably have a bunch of
questions about his program, and so I've taken
the liberty of including many of the answers that
Yuri provided to me the other day.

Here you go…

1. What makes this cleanse different from all the
rest?

The Total Wellness Cleanse is the ONLY guided
cleanse that is completely natural and food
based. Although there are many different detox
products on the market, our program is a holistic
approach to healing and cleansing your body
through food and lifestyle improvements.

Our unique approach is based on years of experience
(and great results) with our personal clients and
is verified by the leading cleanse/detox experts
and scientific data.

Perhaps more importantly, our program is the ONLY
one that will give you daily support via email.
We're at your side 100% of the way to keep you
motivated and on-track.

2. What do I need for this cleanse?

Other than food and water, you don't need much. A
blender and juicer are helpful but are not
required.

3. How long is the cleanse?

30 days. The first 14 days are the "cleanse
phase" and the second 2 weeks are the maintenance
phase. So, in reality, the real cleanse is 14
days. It's all explained in the program and very
easy to follow.

4. Are you going to sell me any detox or cleanse products?

Absolutely not! Our approach is through dietary
and lifestyle improvements – not "magic
formulas".

5. Who shouldn't do this cleanse?

Our 30-day guided cleanse is suitable for any
healthy individual. However, to avoid toxin
transfer to the fetus/baby, we do not recommend
that pregnant or breast-feeding mothers do the
cleanse.

Furthermore, if you suffer from a
serious illness such as cancer or cardiovascular
disease, we require that you consult with your
medical doctor first and foremost.

6. Will I lose weight on this cleanse?

Most likely yes. As your body releases excess
toxins, your fat cells (which store the toxins)
will diminish in size.

Also, because you won't be eating excessive amounts
of calories you may create a caloric deficit if you're
an active individual.

This, in turn, will also help you lose weight.
The important thing to remember is that you will lose
weight while dramatically enhancing the health of your body.

7. What if I don't want to lose weight?

That's ok as well. Most people who cleanse, while
wanting to maintain their weight, might lose a
few pounds (usually less than 5 lbs) but that's
about it.

The key to maintaining your weight on
our cleanse is to ensure you incorporate regular
strength training and follow a clean diet that
provides sufficient calories. You'll get both of
these components with our cleanse.

8. What other results can I expect?

Everyone is slightly different but the most
common results we see (and that are reported to
us) are fat loss, clear and radiant skin, much
more energy, greater capacity to exercise with
faster recovery, and improved overall health
(based on a number of markers including blood
sugar levels, blood lipids, pH, and others).

Most people who follow our cleanse also
experience improved mental clarity, better
concentration, and greater productivity in their
business, work, and personal life.

9. Can someone with diabetes use the cleanse?

Yes they can. As always, they want to make sure
to consult a physician before starting a cleanse
but the nature of our cleanse and recipes will be
suitable for somebody with blood sugar issues.
Continue to take any medications relating to this
disease while following the cleanse.

10. Can age be a factor in determining if you should do
the cleanse?

Not at all. The cleanse will teach you how to eat
properly and any age group can benefit from that
information.

11. Will people doing the cleanse receive anything by mail?

No. Since we are a “green friendly” company and
we want to people to have immediate access to the
materials, all of the information will be
provided by email and digital download.

12. What happens after the 30 days are up?

You are given an 8 week maintenance meal plan and
recipes as part of the cleanse that you can
follow after the original 14 day cleansing
period. This will provide you with ample time to
be able to change your dietary lifestyle going
forward.

13. What if I currently have a medical condition?
Will this cleanse be suitable and okay for me to use?

First and foremost, consult your physician before
starting any cleansing program. However since the
nature of the program is really about making much
healthier dietary choices, people from all walks
of life will be able to benefit.

14. I travel quite often; will I still be able to
do the Cleanse?

Yes. The key is preparation. Make sure you know
what you need while you travel, i.e. grocery
list, proper foods. The knowledge you will
acquire in the cleanse will also help you make
healthy "cleansing" choices while eating in a
restaurant or hotel while you travel.

15. What If I need further assistance throughout the
cleanse?

Not to worry, you'll receive daily coaching
emails with on-going support, inspiration, and
answers to your questions. Furthermore, we
provide more personalized support on our Facebook
page which all cleanse members have access to.

16. Can I exercise while on the cleanse?

Yes. You can exercise while on the cleanse and it
is certainly helpful if you’re looking to lose
weight. Just be aware that working out during the
14-day cleanse phase may be more challenging as
you'll have fewer sugars and calories to use as
fuel.

Thanks Yuri.

Hope those answers give you a better understanding
of the Total Wellness Cleanse and alleviate any concerns
you might have.

“How to Effortlessly Re-Charge Your Body and Mind for Maximum Healing and Regeneration!” David Wolfe

Dear Angels,

Did you know that there are 77,000 known synthetic chemicals that have been manufactured since the 1940’s?

They are lurking in the food we eat, the water we drink, and the air we breathe. These toxins enter our body through our skin, lungs, eyes, and mouth. And the impact on both our short and long-term health is just beginning to be revealed.

The liver is forced to deal with this heavy toxic burden and can often times be left completely overwhelmed.

In a recent video clip from the sold-out Longevity Now® Conference in Costa Mesa, CA, best-selling author David Wolfe shares three simple steps that can help you address removing toxicity from your body and restore healthy hormone balance.

Root Canal Cover Up

Greetings Angels,
Well here’s one that’s really hitting home at the moment! I am sitting here denying the agony of some recent dental work. A crown I had done a few months ago. I can feel myself going between my strong thoughts where the pain is gone, and then the weaker thoughts, where the pain is present. Can you relate?
I am definitely detoxing after this. I’ll search out some good ones and share with you. A lot of people I know are doing heavy metal detoxes. Next week I am going to finally get my mercury fillings out. Then embark on a good cleanse. Perhaps a Holiday Cleanse?
I just hope this is the result of some fluke and not bad dentistry. I will let you know.
In the meantime, I found quite an interesting article for you.


ROOT CANAL COVER UP
What do you think?

All love and eternal gratitude,
Angelique
