Food That Harms, Food That Heals

Topics - Healthy Living
Written by Margaret Paul, Ph.D.   

Our country is stretched to the limit due to the cost of health care. Even with the new health care bill, there will be on going conflict over what we should do to provide people with affordable health care. But the reason that the problem seems irresolvable is a very complex one.

Let's take Carrie as an example. Carrie was brought up by parents who knew nothing about good nutrition. Both of her parents worked and had little time to cook, so they often relied on cheap meals such as McDonalds. Carrie's mother, frazzled from work and trying the best she could to take care of Carrie and her two brothers, often gave them candy and cookies to get them off her back, and breakfast was sugared dry cereal with milk.

As an adult, Carrie is addicted to packaged and processed food, especially foods that contain HFCS - High Fructose Corn Syrup - which is in many foods and is partly responsible for the obesity problem in our country, as well as for many others serious illnesses. The few fruits and vegetables she eats are canned or frozen and filled with pesticides and preservatives. The meat she eats from the factory farms is filled with antibiotics.

Carrie is overweight and suffering from type 2 diabetes, and was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.

Carrie has never been taught that she is responsible for her health. She has never been taught that she is mostly what she eats. She does not know that the food she is eating not only has little nutritional value, but is harming her. And it is not likely that this important information will be readily available to her because the large corporations who produce the food she eats does not want her to know that it is killing her.

They don't want her to know that the animal protein she eats is so far from natural as to be harmful to her. They don't want her to know that the enriched packaged foods are robbing her body of necessary nutrients.

In addition to the food industry that doesn't want her to know what is really happening, the drug companies want her to think that all she has to do is take a pill to make things better. They also do not want her to know what is really happening. They don't want her to know that she is responsible for her health. And unfortunately, many physicians also don't want their patients to take responsibility for their own health. Not to mention the insurance companies.

The bottom line of the health care crisis is greed. How can our government insist that people eat well, get exercise, and learn how to deal with their stress in responsible, non-addictive ways without harmful drugs when the very people who put them in power are the ones who would lose money if people take responsibility for their health? Will these huge food and drug corporations, and insurance companies voluntarily give up their huge profits to support health and personal responsibility? No...

How To Lose Weight as an Older Woman

Topics - Healthy Living
Written by Margaret Paul, Ph.D.   

Leah called me for a phone session because she was menopausal and was having a very hard time losing weight. She had gained 12 pounds and was unhappy about it.

"Everything I used to do doesn't work anymore," she told me. "I used to be able to cut back on my food for a few days or a week and lose 5 pounds. Now nothing happens. Even with exercise. I don't know what to do."

I am not a nutritionist - I am an author and an Inner Bonding® facilitator. However, health and nutrition have been favorite subjects for me for the last 48 years. And I'm also an older woman who encountered the very same problem with weight as Leah.

So I want to share with you what has worked for me and for many other older women (as well as young women and men) I've worked with.

  • The first thing I suggest you do is go to http://www.metabolictyping.com/ and take the metabolic typing online test. What this will do is let you know whether your body needs a lot of protein and little carbohydrates, lots of carbs and little protein, or whether you are in the middle, needing an equal amount of each.

  • Once you know your metabolic type, then you need to spend a couple of weeks counting calories while eating according to your metabolic type, to get a clear experience of how much food you actually need. As we age, we need MUCH less food, and this can be challenging. I had to accept that my body needs much less food than before menopause. I don't know how it works, but I still have tons of energy eating much less food. It took awhile to accept this, as I love food, but now it seems normal to not eat much.
  • The food you eat needs to be nutritionally dense, and preferably organic, to maintain weight and health. This means lots and lots of vegetables - regardless of your metabolic type. Vegetables are the most nutrient dense food there is, so to lose or maintain weight, we needs lots of veggies. Being a protein type, I don't do well on a purely vegetarian diet like a carb type can, but I eat tons of raw, cooked, and blended vegetables, i.e. green smoothies made in a Vita-Mix or Blendtec. My green smoothies contain not only lots of leafy green veggies, but added green nutrients as well, plus apples. They are powerhouse drinks! I eat grass-finished meats (lower in calories than factory-farmed meats and far more nutrient dense), organic eggs, raw dairy from our own cow share, organic chickens, sprouted bread, and occasionally other whole grains - all in limited quantities. If you are a carb type, then you can likely do without the meat and eat more whole grains and fruits instead.

  • It is vitally important to stay connected with your feelings and to learn to connect with your personal source of spiritual guidance. If you are accustomed to filling your loneliness and emptiness with food, now is a great time to learn to fill it with love, which comes from your Source. If ...

Nutrition as an ADHD Alternative Treatment: Help is as Close as the Kitchen

Disorders - Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
Written by Jeannine Virtue   

Woman with appleThe quality of food we eat (or lack thereof) has a profound affect on Attention Deficit Disorder and ADHD. For many people, nutrition alone can effectively work as an ADHD alternative treatment.

A growing body of research points to nutritional deficiencies - especially with essential fatty acids and amino acids - as a contributing factor of Attention Deficit Disorder and learning deficiencies.

Put down the Ritalin bottle for one minute to consider these Attention Deficit Disorder ADHD nutrition research findings:

  • A George Washington University School of Medicine study found that hyperactive children who ate a meal high in protein did equally well, and sometimes better, in school than non-hyperactive kids.
  • An Oxford University (England) study evaluated the effects of fatty acid supplementation in average intelligence children with significant reading and writing disabilities. The ADHD symptoms in children receiving essential fatty acids significantly improved over the children in the control group receiving a placebo.
  • Researchers first tied Attention Deficit Disorder ADHD with lower essential fatty acid in 1981. Studies examining essential fatty acid blood levels in children with behavioral problems in 1983 confirmed this Attention Deficit Disorder nutrition connection.
  • Researchers further documented the essential fatty acid deficiency tie to Attention Deficit Disorder in a 1987 study. Then, a 1995 study comparing essential fatty acid levels in ADHD boys against a control group of boys without ADHD found significantly lower levels of Omega-3 fatty acids.
  • In 1996 Purdue University researchers have found that boys with low blood levels of Omega-3 fatty acids have a greater frequency of Attention Deficit Disorder ADHD.

Attention Deficit Disorder is the most common behavioral disorder in children. Not all Attention Deficit Disorder ADHD children are nutritionally deficient in essential fatty acids, statistics and studies show that a significant number of ADHD children are.

Physicians predominately use stimulant drugs such as Ritalin for Attention Deficit Disorder but studies show that Attention Deficit Disorder ADHD children whose treatment program includes only stimulant medication remain at a high risk for vandalism, petty crime, frequency of alcoholic intoxication, and possession of marijuana. Additionally, ADHD medications can cause potentially harmful side effects and does not treat the cause the Attention Deficit Disorder.

With Attention Deficit Disorder ADHD, nutrition and food is one the first aspect of treatment to consider, as an ADHD alternative treatment or used in conjunction with traditional ADHD stimulant drug treatment .

Fatty acids are used to make brain and nerve tissue in the body and are crucial for proper growth, mental function, the immune system and brain development. ...
