3 Steps to Beating Metabolic Syndrome

  • “It’s time to take my blood pressure pill.”
  • “Better take my insulin before I eat.”
  • “My doctor says I need medication for my high cholesterol.”

These are all common phrases that I’m sure you’ve either heard before or said yourself. It’s no surprise when 70% of Americans are on some sort of prescription drug.

Managing high blood pressure, high blood sugar and high cholesterol have sadly become synonymous with taking a pill. Click to Tweet.

risk factors for metabolic syndromeBut, what if I told you that you didn’t have to keep these illnesses “under control” with medications. What if there is another, better way? Would you choose the cure over the prescription bottle?

I’m sure you’re saying, “Yes, of course I would!”

Nonetheless, millions choose their pills every single day. They choose to suppress their symptoms and never regain their health. Maybe taking the steps to resolve their health issues seem time-consuming or difficult. Whatever the reason may be, the truth is you are not bound to your illness and your pills! You have the power to take back your health!

The Deadly Trio

Behind the deadly trio of diseases: diabetes, heart disease and strokes is a group of risk factors that are entirely too common. So common, in fact, that 47 million Americans have not just one, but a combination of at least 3, of these risk factors! The collection of these risk factors is called metabolic syndrome. While metabolic syndrome is not a disease itself, it is a condition that can pose some serious dangers to your health.

To be diagnosed, you must have at least 3 out of the 5 specific risk factors. Read the criteria below to find out whether you, or someone you know, may have metabolic syndrome. Knowing the primary indicators gives you the power to avoid disease and live a long, happy, and healthy life!

Risk Factors for Metabolic Syndrome:

  • Central or abdominal obesity (measuredbywaist circumference):
    • Men: 40 inches or above
    • Women: 35 inches or above
  • Triglycerides greater than or equal to 150 milligrams per deciliter of blood
  • HDL cholesterol:
    • Men: Less than 40 mg/dL
    • Women: Less than 50 mg/dL
  • Blood pressure greater than or equal to 130/85
  • Fasting glucose greater than or equal to 100

Some of you might need to look over your latest lab results to know your risk factors. Chances are if you have metabolic syndrome, then your doctor has voiced his concern. He may not have labeled you with metabolic syndrome, but it’s common knowledge in the medical community that a combination of these risks spells danger.

Metabolic syndrome doubles your risk of heart disease and strokes and makes you five times more likely to become diabetic! Click to Tweet.

The good news is that you can wipe out your risks and eliminate metabolic syndrome in just three steps! You’re not doomed to suffer a heart attack, stroke, or diabetes. Your health and your future are in your hands!

The Sweet Culprit

Developing metabolic syndrome results from poor choices, not genetics, 99% of the time. One of the most important choices we can make is what we eat. The most devastating food choice of all is sugar.

Consuming large amounts of sugar and carbohydrates destroys your health and acts like a slow acting poison. Over time, it breaks down your body’s systems by initiating unnatural processes.

Some of the most disturbing outcomes of sugar involve all 5 metabolic syndrome risk factors! The harmful effects of sugar include:

High Blood Sugar

Over-consumption of sugar and carbohydrates causes an increase in insulin. This overproduction of insulin leaves our cells in a non-responsive state, otherwise known as insulin resistance. Consistently high levels of insulin are associated with many harmful changes in the body long before manifesting as a disease, such as chronic inflammation and diabetes.

High Triglycerides

Sugars raise insulin levels, which raise triglycerides in the body. Triglycerides are then stored in your fat tissue for later energy use. However, some of these extra triglycerides end up in your arteries and can cling to your artery walls. This buildup, also referred to as plaque, can harden your artery walls and inhibit blood flow. Eventually, this can lead to serious complications, such as heart attack or stroke.

High Cholesterol

When you eat refined sugar, the pancreas starts to work overtime to pour out insulin. The dramatic increase in circulating insulin grabs the sugar and stores it as body fat, often in the liver. The side-effect of circulating excess insulin is that it causes the liver to actually manufacture more cholesterol.

High Blood Pressure

Eating sugars and high carbohydrate foods can create a stress response in the body. This stress response begins in the hypothalamus of the brain. The “stress” of sugar causes the brain to increase the heart rate and blood pressure. Daily consumption of sugar and high carbohydrate foods creates such a stress response in the body that chronic high blood pressure is a result.

Abdominal Obesity

Consuming excess sugar encourages the liver to store that sugar as fat. Click to Tweet.

This fat is accumulated around the abdomen. Sugar is empty calories that pulls minerals from the body during digestion. Sugar creates a hormone cascade when consumed that causes the body to crave more sugar, which increases caloric intake and leads to weight gain.

The most frightening aspect of sugar is how quickly it destroys the body. Studies have shown that sugar can cause these health issues in as few as 10 weeks!

This leads me to step one in beating metabolic syndrome.

Step #1: Reduced Carbohydrate Diet

simple tips for reducing carbs_easyI purposely call this the “reduced carb” diet rather than “low carb” diet for a reason. I believe low carb diets, like the Atkins Diet, are too extreme. However, our current high-sugar, high-carb diet is killing us. For years, our ancestors subsisted on what they hunted and gathered. Sugar- and carbohydrate-based meals were rarely eaten.

Sadly, in the past 20-30 years, our country has shifted from well-rounded meals to meals centered around carbohydrates. Grains and starches typically dominate the plate at dinnertime and soda replaces milk or water. A lot has changed over the decades, and not for the better.

Reducing your carbohydrates is simpler than you might think. I personally have taken huge strides in the past 10 years in reducing my carbohydrates. It takes an adjustment in both your body and mind in the beginning. But soon, your body won’t crave sugar or carbohydrates anymore!

Here are some simple tips for reducing your carbs:

  • Fill your plate with an extra serving of vegetables, instead of a side of bread.
  • Use large leaves of lettuce to wrap up your burger or deli meat instead of a bun.
  • Skip dessert and grab a piece of fruit instead.
  • Drink tea sweetened with stevia instead of soda. Better yet, drink water!
  • Try spaghetti squash or shredded zucchini as a noodle substitute.
  • Cut out wheat products and eat gluten-free grains like rice and quinoa in moderation.

I also highly recommend eliminating gluten from your diet. Gluten contains specific compounds, which increase hunger, block nutrient absorption, and cause inflammatory responses. As someone who was personally on the fence over the whole gluten-free trend, I took the plunge and I am so glad I did!

I have more energy, less sugar cravings, and no longer have the awful “wheat belly.” The only catch is to not replacing wheat with a bunch of gluten-free carbs. Just because it is gluten-free does not mean it is healthy.

Step #2 Exercise

We all know the benefits of regular exercise, yet so many of us just can’t bring ourselves to do it! Regular exercise reduces the risk for cardiovascular disease, stroke, and diabetes. Exercise directly reduces the risk factors for metabolic syndrome by:

  • Reducing stress, which can lower blood pressure
  • Promotes weight loss
  • Lowers blood sugar levels

A recent study asked people with metabolic syndrome to exercise for 30 minutes a day. The exercise was so effective that nearly half of the participants no longer had metabolic syndrome risk factors by the end of the study! Even something as simple as a brisk walk for 30 minutes once a day, five days per week can make such a dramatic impact on your health!

I personally have been using the workouts on the website http://neilarey.com. These workouts are fun, only 20-30 minutes in length and can be done at home in your living room!

If you are overwhelmed by the idea of beginning an exercise regimen or don’t know where to start, then begin with 10 minutes a day of moderate exercise. If your health prevents you from participating in vigorous physical activity, then do not get discouraged. While lower levels of activity might not produce the same results as quickly, they will help you move in the right direction.

Making the time to perform these workouts has reduced my stress levels and kept me strong and healthy! I heartily recommend them as an ongoing, safe and rewarding part of your life.

Step #3 The Right Supplements

As I mentioned earlier, many people look to a pill alone to fix all their problems. Unfortunately, there is no pill that will make you healthy. You must put in the effort to eat right and exercise. There really is no getting around that. However, taking supplements can synergistically work with a diet and exercise regime to bring about even more dramatic results!

There are some fantastic herbs, vitamins, and natural supplements that can aid in balancing your blood sugar, lowering cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and lowering your blood pressure. Below are some of the best supplements for preventing metabolic syndrome. These are safe and effective supplements, which, unlike pharmaceutical drugs, are free from dangerous side effects.

If you are overweight, then here are 4 reasons to take fish oilFish Oil:

Taking just 1 gram of fish oil a day can help boost healthy HDL cholesterol levels, while lowering the artery clogging LDL cholesterol. Fish oil is a foundational supplement that should be taken by people of all ages because of its positive effects on the body. Fish oil also:

  • Decreases inflammation throughout the body
  • Boosts brain function
  • Lowers stroke risk
  • And lowers blood pressure

Garlic:

Garlic contains natural ACE reducing properties. “ACE” or the ngiotensin-converting enzyme, indirectly constricts blood vessels and raises blood pressure. Most blood pressure medications are formulated as ACE inhibitors. Garlic naturally inhibits ACE, which makes it effective in lower blood pressure  in those with hypertension. Garlic also:

  • Lowers cholesterol and triglycerides
  • Prevents blood clots
  • Fights infections

You can eat a clove of garlic a day or take 2 of the odor-free capsule form if you prefer.

Magnesium:

This essential mineral is critical for the body, yet many people don’t get adequate amounts of magnesium from the foods they eat. Supplementing with magnesium can:

  • Lower blood pressure
  • Decrease tachycardia and arrhythmias
  • Lower LDL cholesterol levels

A typical daily dosage is 500-1000 mg a day

Cinnamon:

This delicious spice can be a life-changing supplement for controlling blood sugar levels. Cinnamon has antioxidant compounds, which have natural insulin-like qualities.

In a London study, two grams of cinnamon a day had a greater effect on blood glucose levels than pharmaceutical blood sugar lowering drugs!

Cinnamon also reduces inflammation and lowers cholesterol levels. To experience cinnamon’s health benefits, take 1-2 grams per day in capsule form.

Taking pharmaceutical drugs to control your symptoms is not the ideal path towards holistic health and wellness. Instead, making lifestyle changes in your diet and exercise give you the ability to regain your health. These changes will prevent the deadly diseases that can occur as a result of metabolic syndrome.

Adopting a healthy diet by reducing your carbohydrates and sugars, exercising daily, and incorporating health-promoting supplements can evoke real results. These results can be the difference between a long vibrant life and a life interrupted with illness and disease. The choice is yours!

Eating for Healthy Genes

 by Amanda Box, N.D.

Eating right isn’t just about being able to fit into your skinny jeans. What you eat has an effect on a different kind of jeans; the kind of genes you were born with.

These genes make you the unique person you are, from the color of your hair to whether you can curl your tongue or not. When your mother and father’s DNA combined, it formed an exclusive genetic blueprint. This inherited design created a unique you.

In many aspects of who you are, you have every right to shout out, “Take it or leave it! I was born this way!” Embrace your uniqueness because it is what makes you truly beautiful.

However, when it comes to your health, just because you were born with “bad” genes, doesn’t mean you have to “wear” them. Your parents’ and grandparents’ health issues don’t have to determine your fate. You may have been born with a predisposition to a disease, but science has revealed you are not enslaved to what you inherited.

You have a choice not just to make the best of what you were born with, but to alter your body’s genetic design. What you choose to put in your body can change the genetic blueprint passed down to you, as it pertains to health and disease.

Scientists studying the effects of nutrition on our genome have branded this field nutriepigenetics. This study of nutrition’s role on gene expression has proven that we have some control over our genes.

Certain foods and nutrients can turn bad genes off and good genes on, or vice versa.  Our genes are not fixed. A gene might express itself depending on factors like diet, stress and exercise.

This is an exciting discovery because many of us live in fear of the impending diseases that took our family members. What is fascinating is that when you better your genetic blueprint, the new and improved version is passed down to your future children. You have the power, in many ways, to break the disease curses that have passed down through your family for generations. You have the power to create healthy and strong genetic lines for your future children and grandchildren!

Macronutrients and Gene Expression

Knowing what to eat and what not to eat is a powerful tool in controlling your gene expression. Activating bad genes boils down to making poor decisions.

Chemicals, toxins and a sedentary lifestyle are primarily responsible for causing genes to activate disease. Click to Tweet.

Though everyone is different and unique, there are certain foods and lifestyle choices that can have a negative effect on gene expression. Our macronutrient ratios negatively or positively impact our genes the most. These are the amount of carbohydrates, protein, and fats we eat on a daily basis that vitally alter our health.

Carbohydrate Intake

A high carbohydrate diet benefits no one, regardless of their genotype (complete heritable genetic identity). A diet high in carbohydrates is attributed to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and much more.

A recent study in Norway monitored a group of 32 obese men and women.  The group was divided and given a powdered diet formulated with calories to maintain their body weight. However, each group was given a different macronutrient ratio. Specifically, the amount of carbohydrates and protein varied. The first group’s powder was formulated according to USDA recommendations:

  • 65% carbohydrates
  • 15% Protein
  • 20% fat

The second group’s formula included:

  • 33% carbohydrates
  • 33% protein
  • 34% fat

Both groups took turns on each diet. Their blood work and genetic expressions were observed and noted. The studies found, that no matter what a person’s unique genetic makeup was, a high carbohydrate diet exacerbates disease.

Professor Johansen, who spearheaded the study stated, “Genes that are involved in type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s disease and some forms of cancer respond to diet, and are up-regulated, or activated, by a carbohydrate-rich diet.” (1)

This study is a huge step towards our understanding of diet and gene expression. We live in a society overloaded with carbohydrates and, consequently, saturated with disease, as well.

Reducing carbohydrate intake is a huge step towards activating healthy gene expression. Click to Tweet.

If you have been consuming a high carbohydrate diet, it is never too late to change!  According to the findings in this study, it only took around 6 days to change the gene expression of the participants! This means if you lower your carbohydrate intake, you can begin to reap the benefits within a week!

Protein

Protein doesn’t seem to have the same detrimental effects on gene expression as do carbohydrates and fats.

Most people don’t eat excess protein, but rather excess fats and carbohydrates. However, it is important to note that more is not better when it comes to protein consumption. A diet balanced in the macronutrients carbohydrates, protein, and fat is best.

Our bodies are constructed of protein. Our organs, muscles, skin, hair, glands, and bodily fluids all contain protein. Our cells need protein to survive and to make repairs in the body. It is also important to consume adequate levels of protein to maintain healthy levels of essential amino acids. Amino acids from protein are crucial on a genetic level in the body.  We need amino acids for coping DNA, RNA, and for gene expression.

Proteins are the building block of life. However, consuming too much protein can create an acidic environment in the body that triggers harmful gene expression leading to disease.  Remember, balance is key when it comes to macronutrient consumption, even with the amazing benefits of protein.

Fat

Fat consumption can be a little tricky because not all fat is created equal. Although some forms of fat can cause disease, other fats actually prevent them!

Vegetable oils can actually induce health problems. But because they are unsaturated, many believe they are healthy. The most popular vegetable oils (soy, corn, canola) are genetically modified. When you introduce GMO foods into your body, you run the risk of modifying your own genes.

GMO foods are created by the splicing, dicing, and transferring of genes from one organism to another.  Although GMO foods have their own built-in pesticides and resistance to herbicides, these modifications come at a price, not improvement.

GMO foods not only negatively impact our gene expression, but they change the actual DNA of bacteria in our body! Click to Tweet.

Genetically modified foods convert bacteria in the gut turning our digestive system into a pesticide-producing factory!

Frying with these oils only makes things worse. They create oxygen radicals that negatively impact our genetic expression. Furthermore, these oils produce carcinogens that are linked to cancer and heart disease.

Although canola, soy, and corn oil should be avoided, there are a few healthy unsaturated oils to include. These oils, as with any type of fat should be consumed in moderation and always avoid using them over high heat.

  • Avocado
  • Safflower
  • Olive Oil

Saturated fats are often painted as the bad guy, especially for heart disease. However, coconut oil can be safely incorporated into your diet without causing negative gene expression. Coconut oil contains compounds that improve health by encouraging weight loss and fighting viruses, bacteria, and fungi.

Healthy Foods for Your Genome

BP-Food PlateGood nutrition is key to reprogramming our genes from a state of disease to a state of health and wellness.  However, following the USDA’s Food Pyramid is not going to lead you to wellness. The food pyramid pushes grains and isn’t truly balanced. Instead your diet should be:

  • Low to moderate in carbohydrates
  • Low to no sugar
  • Moderate to high in protein
  • Moderate in healthy fats like coconut oil and omega-3
  • High in colorful vegetable and fruits

I’ve included Barton Publishing’s Healthy Food Plate for a good visual reference.

The foods that seem to have the greatest positive effects on gene expression contain substances called polyphenols. Polyphenols are a compound found in antioxidants that fight inflammation and protect our cells from free radical damage. Protecting cells protects our genes, making these compounds extremely beneficial.  They can also lower blood pressure and increase insulin sensitivity preventing heart disease, strokes and diabetes. Many fruits and vegetables contain polyphenols. Some of the highest levels are found in:

  • Green Tea
  • Red Wine and Grapes
  • Cabbage
  • Garlic
  • Broccoli
  • Apples
  • Berries
  • Dark Chocolate (at least 60% cacao)

Replacing a large part of grain-based carbohydrates with vegetables is a fantastic way to enhance your polyphenol and nutrient content. Skip the bread and add another vegetable to your plate instead. Eating to maximize your good genes doesn’t have to be boring or without flavor. It won’t take long before you begin to crave these healthy foods that boost your health and wellness.

I’m a huge fan of ethnic food, whether it is Thai, Indian, Vietnamese, Korean; you name it. I love the vast array of spices and flavors. Something I feel we lack in the West are dishes that are flavorful, but also are packed full of healthy vegetables. In America, vegetables are often kept separate, as a side dish. However, in other countries they are incorporated into the main dishes adding both flavor and color.

One of my favorite dishes to prepare for my family is a Korean Dish called Bibimbap. You can pick your vegetables making this a great “clean out the fridge” dish. Using quinoa instead of rice bumps up the protein content making it even healthier. This beautiful dish comes packed full of nutrition, polyphenols, healthy fats, and protein.

Korean Quinoa Bibimbap

Even though sugar is truly bad for your genes, it doesn’t mean that those of you with a sweet tooth need to be deprived! Luckily, there are healthy alternatives to sugar that taste delicious and give you the ability to still have dessert!

Since dark chocolate in high in polyphenols, this dessert is not only delicious, but good for you!  The surprising part of this recipe is the avocado, which makes the mousse not only creamy, but packed with healthy fats. This recipe is a snap to make. It is also raw, vegan, sugar-free and gluten-free!!

Avocado Chocolate Mousse

avocado chocolate mousse_2Ingredients:

  • 4 ripe avocados
  • 2 tsp liquid stevia
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • Fresh fruit and nuts for garnish

iDirections:

  1. In the bowl of a blender or food processor, blend avocado until smooth.
  2. Add all other ingredients, blending until mixture is uniform.
  3. Chill for about 2 hours in the fridge or half an hour in the freezer.
  4. Garnish with fresh fruit or chopped nuts.

It is NEVER too late to incorporate healthy food choices into your life. As I stated earlier, studies have shown it only takes 6 days for your genes to change expression.

For those of you headed down a path of disease and destruction, this is incredible news! You can begin creating a life of health and wellness today!  Don’t drag around the ball and chain of your family’s diseases any longer! You have the power to cut that chain and run towards a long future of health and wellness.

Diet Soda Leads to Hearing Loss

By David Kekich

The human body evolved with a diet that was high in fruits and vegetables. If you fight nature with your diet, your health and energy level will tank, as well as hearing loss. People are shocked at how much better they feel after substituting high-fiber foods for fast foods, processed foods and artificial sweeteners like aspartame. You need fiber:

  • To regulate your bowels
  • For good colon health
  • For weight loss if you are overweight

Eating fruits and vegetables increases your fiber intake.

How you combine your foods is also important. The best combinations are:

  • Proteins or fats with vegetables
  • Vegetables with simple carbohydrates
  • Vegetables with fat

Combining your fruit with protein and healthy fats slows sugar/carbohydrate absorption. In fact, make protein the first bite of each meal to slow absorption even more. That means less fat storage, longer lasting energy and fewer food cravings shortly after you eat. And you will easily accomplish that by eating less. In fact, even if you eat unhealthy food from time to time, eating less of it at each meal can be almost as important as eating the right food.

Remember to lower your carbohydrate intake by replacing high-calorie, low-nutrient carbohydrates (white bread, pasta, rice, table sugar, soda, candy) with low-calorie, high-nutrient carbohydrates (brightly colored fruits and vegetables and sweet potatoes).

If you add sweeteners to anything, the healthiest sugar substitute we know of is stevia. Stevia is a delicious natural herb sweetener with added health benefits. You can find it your local health food store. Avoid artificial sweeteners. Most are toxic and can undermine your health.

For example, high doses of aspartame may lead to neurodegeneration. Aside from the damage it can do to your brain, aspartame can cause cancer. One well-controlled, peer-reviewed, seven-year study even found that as little as 20 mg per day can cause cancer in humans. One 12-ounce diet soda contains about 180 mg of aspartame, so you do the math for that risk!

Eating aspartame can also lead to multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, memory and hearing loss and hormonal problems.

How about Splenda? That’s harmless, right? Well, look at what a recent study, published in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health found. Splenda reduces the amount of good bacteria in your intestines by 50 percent, contributes to weight gain, increases the pH level in your intestines (bad for your digestion) and affects a glycoprotein in your body that can have crucial health effects, particularly if you’re on certain medications.

Diet soda anyone?”

In addition to changing what food you eat, consider changing when you eat. The fluctuations in your insulin levels from carbohydrates, which are so damaging to your system, can be controlled by eating smaller, more frequent meals. This will also boost your metabolism, causing calories to be burned faster, and will raise your energy level.

Those with aspartame in their diet, once taken off diet sodas, have fond symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis disappear.  There are many cases where vision loss returned and hearing loss improved markedly. This also applies to cases of tinnitus and fibromyalgia.

You buy the poison; you buy the disease.

Food is a weapon.  Are you going to be the next victim?
