What Does the Bible Say About What We Say? Some thoughts on the wisdom of looking at the waveforms. Scriptures Mentioned Proverbs 10:19 (AMP) When there are many words, transgression and offense are unavoidable, But he who controls his lips and keeps thoughtful silence is wise. Proverbs 11:9 “Evil words destroy one's friends; wise discernment rescues the godly. Proverbs 15:4 “Gentle words bring life and health; a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.” Proverbs 16:24 “Kind words are like honey – sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.” Proverbs 18:21 “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” Proverbs 18:4 “A person's words can be life-giving water; words of true wisdom are as refreshing as a bubbling brook.” Proverbs 12:18 “There is one who speaks rashly like he thrusts of a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.” Proverbs 25:18 “Telling lies about others is as harmful as hitting them with an ax, wounding them with a sword, or shooting them with a sharp arrow.” Luke 6:43-45 “For there is no good tree which produces bad fruit, nor, on the other hand, a bad tree which produces good fruit. For each tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they pick grapes from a briar bush. The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth what is evil; for his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart.” Proverbs 21:23 “Whosoever keeps his mouth and his tongue keeps himself out of trouble.” James 3:5 “In the same way, the tongue is a small thing that makes grand speeches. But a tiny spark can set a great forest on fire.” James 1:26 “If you claim to be religious but don't control your tongue, you are fooling yourself, and your religion is worthless.” Proverbs 17:18 “Even a fool who keeps silent is considered wise; when he closes his lips, he is deemed intelligent.” Psalm 119:105 “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” Matthew 24:35 “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.” Romans 14:12 “So then each one of us will give an account of himself to God.” Matthew 12:36 “But I tell you that every careless word that people speak, they shall give an account for it in the day of judgement.” Great article with all these verses and more, by Ashley Evans Music by Tommy Walker Sign up for my Substack letter here.

"I advise you not to be too deeply disturbed by these scandals, because their coming was foretold so that, when they came, we might remember that they had been foretold and might not be greatly troubled by them." ”Augustine's correspondence, the mark and expression of the influential personality and apostolic zeal of the author, is rich in historical, philosophical, theological, exegetical, spiritual, literary, and autobiographical content” (Agostino Trapè). In this letter (Letter 208), he exhorts a Christian woman not to be scandalized by the faults of Christians and their pastors, and to remain within the unity of the Church despite the sins of its members. The extant correspondence of St. Augustine includes more than 270 letters, including well over 200 written by him. Those numbered 124-231 span the period from the conference between Catholic and Donatist bishops held in 411, and the rise of the Pelagian heresy, until Augustine's death in 430.

Throwback to an Amazing Conversation with Dr. Daniel Amen! (Originally YST021, August 2014) Dr. Daniel Amen is a bestselling author, internationally renowned psychiatrist, and founder of the Amen Clinic. Dr. Amen was one of the first neuroscientists to realize that traditional psychiatric diagnostic testing was inadequate for many patients. He began using functional brain imaging to find out what was really happening inside people's minds, and his work has saved or improved literally thousands of people's lives. His books and his influence have impacted my life and practice, and he's an incredibly gracious and inspirational man. This is a great interview. Dr. Amen is so passionate, and his message is simple: your brain dictates almost everything about how you experience life. You can change it if you try; you're not stuck with the same old problems and behaviors you've always had. Change your brain, change your life.

You see the same thing with type 2 diabetes.” – Dr. Stephan GuyenetThere is no demographic in the U.S. adults where we have not gotten much fatter over the last few decades – regardless of income, education, or geography – we're getting fatter than we wereObesity is highly heritable (about 75%) and preservedDifferences in body fatness between individuals are primarily determined by differences in how the brain is constructed and operatesAny time you eat something sweet, that food substance causes neuropod cells in the gut to send parallel signals to the brain which activates dopamine and tells us to seek out and eat more sweet foodsDietary tribal ideology can hold you back from finding the right foods for your bodyThe distribution of fat in the body is more related to insulin signaling; the total amount of fat in the body is related to energy intakeThe types of foods most addictive are generally a mix of carbohydrates and fat in optimal concentration which triggers dopamine and activates seeking behaviorWhen it comes to nutrition, author credentials are not indicative of the quality of information and publishers do not fact-check – be diligent and unbiased in your review or check out Red Pen Reviews (free to public)Read the full notes @ podcastnotes.org View the Show Notes Page for This Episode Become a Member to Receive Exclusive Content Sign Up to Receive Peter's Weekly Newsletter Stephan Guyenet is a neuroscientist focused on the neuroscience of obesity and energy homeostasis.  He is the author of the book, The Hungry Brain and founder/director of Red Pen Reviews. In this episode, Stephan explains how obesity has changed phenotypically over the course of human history as well as what might explain the dramatic increase in prevalence of obesity in the last few decades. He talks in depth about the role of genetics, the brain, and hormones like leptin play in the regulation of fat mass. He dives deep into two common theories of obesity—the carbohydrate-insulin model and the energy balance model and provides his take on which theory has stronger evidence. Additionally, he provides insights on how we're hard-wired to think about food and the consequences of modern foods designed for maximal pleasure. Finally, he goes through the factors that affect body weight, set points, and provides takeaways for people wanting to take advantage of what we know about the brain's role in regulating our body weight. We discuss: Stephan's neuroscience background and his focus on the nuances of obesity [2:15]; How obesity has changed for humans throughout history [8:00]; The association between obesity and adverse health outcomes, the “obesity paradox,” and confounders when relating BMI to longevity [14:00]; The sharp increase in obesity across demographics [23:30]; The hypothalamus and its role in obesity [30:00];  The role of the hormone leptin in obesity [40:00]; The genetic component of obesity [46:30]; Understanding the tendency of humans to store fat through an evolutionary lens [57:00];   The hedonic aspect of food, and how the brain reacts to modern, highly-rewarding foods [1:03:30]; How we are hard-wired to think about food [1:14:30]; A review of the “Carnivore diet” [1:21:45]; The energy balance model, carbohydrate-insulin model, and unifying the theories around adiposity [1:34:15]; Body weight set points: a hypothetical comparison of two individuals [1:41:45]; Takeaways for people who want to lose weight and keep it off [1:48:30]; Evidence that favors the energy balance model of weight gain [1:56:00]; The synergistic effect of fat and carbohydrates and observations that a low-fat diet or a low-carb diet can cause weight loss [2:04:30]; Red Pen Reviews [2:11:00]; More.

216. Guidelines: 2021 ESC Cardiovascular Prevention – Question #13 with Dr. Eugene Yang

The following question refers to Section 3.2 of the 2021 ESC CV Prevention Guidelines. The question is asked by student Dr. Hirsh Elhence, answered first by Mayo Clinic Fellow Dr. Teodora Donisan, and then by expert faculty Dr. Eugene Yang. Dr. Yang is professor of medicine of the University of Washington where he is medical director of the Eastside Specialty Center and the co-Director of the Cardiovascular Wellness and Prevention Program. Dr. Yang is former Governor of the ACC Washington Chapter and current chair of the ACC Prevention of CVD Section. The CardioNerds Decipher The Guidelines Series for the 2021 ESC CV Prevention Guidelines represents a collaboration with the ACC Prevention of CVD Section, the National Lipid Association, and Preventive Cardiovascular Nurses Association. Question #13 You are seeing a 45-year-old woman with a past medical history of hypertension, overweight status, hyperlipidemia, and active tobacco use disorder. Her BMI is 27 kg/m2, BP is 150/75, HbA1C is 5.8%, total cholesterol is 234 mg/dL, HDL is 59 mg/dL, and LDL is 155 mg/dL. She is from Romania, a country with very high CVD risk. Which of the following statements is CORRECT? A. LDL-C needs to be decreased by at least 50%, as small absolute LDL-C reductions would not provide clinical benefit B. Hypertension is not an important CVD risk factor in our patient, as she is young. C. Prediabetes is not a significant CV risk factor for our patient, as she is not yet diabetic. D. Smoking confers a higher CVD risk for women than for men. E. Her weight does not increase her CVD risk, as she is overweight rather than obese Answer #13 The correct answer is D – Smoking confers a higher CVD risk for women than for men. Prolonged smoking increases the CVD risk more in women than in men. Our patient is 45 years old. CVD risk in smokers < 50 years-old is 5x higher than in non-smokers. Of note, smoking is responsible for 50% of all avoidable deaths in smokers and a lifetime smoker will lose 10 years of life, on average. Secondhand smoke and smokeless tobacco can also increase the CVD risk. Option A is incorrect. The SCORE2 risk chart for populations at very high CVD risk places her at a 14% (very high) 10-year risk for myocardial infarction, stroke, or cardiovascular death. She would derive benefit even from incremental reductions in LDL-C values. The absolute benefit of lowering LDL-C depends on both the absolute risk of ASCVD and the absolute reduction in LDL-C, so even a small absolute reduction in LDL-C may be beneficial in high- or very-high-risk patients. Furthermore, the reduction in CVD risk is proportional to the decrease in LDL-C, irrespective of the medications used to achieve such change. This remains true even when lowering LDL-C values to < 55 mg/dl. Option B is incorrect. Hypertension is a major cause of CVD regardless of age, and the risk of death from either CAD or stroke increases linearly from BP levels as low as 90 mmHg systolic and 75 mmHg diastolic upwards. Particularly relevant for our patient, lifetime BP evolution differs in women compared to men, potentially resulting in an increased CVD risk at lower BP thresholds. Option C is incorrect. Type 1 DM, type 2 DM, and prediabetes are all independent risk factors for ASCVD. Of note, it would be important to address this risk factor with our patient, as women who develop type 2 diabetes have a particularly high risk for stroke. Option E is incorrect. All-cause mortality is lowest at a BMI on 20-25 kg/m2 in apparently healthy patients. Even overweight patients are at increased CVD risk. There is a linear relationship between BMI and mortality in non-smokers and a J-shaped relationship in ever-smokers. In patients with heart failure, a lower mortality risk has been observed with higher BMI – the “obesity paradox.” It would be important to evaluate the waist circumference in our patient, as both BMI and waist circumference are associated with ASCVD risk.

The Salad With a Side of Fries podcast is hosted by Jenn Trepeck, discussing wellness and weight loss for real life, clearing up the myths, misinformation, bad science & marketing surrounding our nutrition knowledge and the food industry. Let's dive into wellness and weight loss for real life, including drinking, eating out, and skipping the grocery store.For today's episode, Dr. Lisa Oldson, founder of Oldson Medical and Smart Weight Loss Coaching, joins us to discuss binge eating. Binge Eating Disorder is the most common eating disorder, but it is often undiagnosed because it's easy to hide. Tune in to learn how self compassion, medication and knowledge could support someone with a binge eating disorder and binge eating behavior.IN THIS EPISODE:●   [06:45] Lisa Oldson's journey.●   [11:00] The way we speak to ourselves is so important.●   [14:15] Understanding that nobody chooses to have binge eating disorder or chooses to carry excess weight.●   [18:00] How we define a binge eating disorder.●   [22:00] Binge eating disorder is the most common of the eating disorders.●   [25:00] Binge eating can feel like a personality flaw, but it is a medical condition.●   [32:00] Someone can have binge eating disorder, but their significant other, spouse, or roommate could have no idea, because they hide it.●   [36:00] Self-compassion and self-coaching might assist with some skills and strategies to address binge eating disorder.●   [41:00] By using the word “practice” you create a little softness and space for yourself not to get it right from the beginning.KEY TAKEAWAYS:●   Binge eating disorder is a medical condition and is the most common eating disorder in the United States.●   Binge eating is difficult to diagnose as it's often hidden from those closest to us.●   There are ways to support people struggling with binge eating like medication, self compassion and shifting perspectives.QUOTES:“The one thing I would ask people to walk away with some compassion and understanding for the fact that nobody chooses to have binge eating disorder, nobody chooses to carry excess weight.” Dr. Lisa Oldson“Binge eating disorder is definitely the most common of the eating disorders and my opinion about why it is so underrecognized and underdiagnosed is because of the shame and the blame that people have.” Dr. Lisa OldsonRESOURCES:Become A Member of Salad with a Side of FriesJenn's Free Menu PlanA Salad With a Side of FriesA Salad With a Side of Fries InstagramGUEST RESOURCES:Lisa Oldson InstagramLisa Oldson FacebookLisa Oldson TwitterLisa Oldson LinkedInGUEST BIO:As an Obesity Medicine physician coming from a Primary Care background, she understands the impact of excess weight on health as well as on self-esteem, employment, relationships, mood and productivity.

Researchers attribute these potential benefits to the polyphenols found in grapes. The sixteen week clinical study, undertaken by Texas Woman's University, was designed to investigate the benefits of grape consumption on inflammation and osteoarthritis outcomes. 72 men and women with knee osteoarthritis (OA) were assigned to either consume grapes in the form of a whole grape freeze-dried powder, or a placebo powder. The study results showed that both men and women consuming a grape-enriched diet had a significant decrease in self-reported pain related to activity and an overall decrease in total knee symptoms. This beneficial effect was more pronounced in females. Additionally, age-related differences were observed: there was a 70% increase in very hard activity for those under 64 years of age consuming the grape powder, while those receiving the placebo reported a significant decrease in very hard activity. Participants over 65 years, whether consuming grapes or the placebo, reported a decline in moderate to hard activities. Evidence of increased cartilage metabolism was observed in men consuming the grape-enriched diet; they had higher levels of an important cartilage growth factor (IGF-1) than those on placebo. This protective effect was not observed in the females. T Bad habits that lead to cancer, chronic disease corrected by simple lifestyle intervention Northwestern University, June 19, 20122 Does this sound like someone you know? He or she spends too much time in front of screens, gets little exercise and eats a diet high in fat and low in fruits and vegetables. It likely sounds familiar because it describes a significant portion of the U.S. population. A new Northwestern Medicine study found that a lifestyle intervention could fully normalize these four unhealthy behaviors, which put people at risk of developing heart disease and common cancers, including breast, colon and prostate. “Our findings suggest that prevention of chronic disease through behavior change is feasible. They contradict the pessimistic assumption that it's not possible to motivate relatively healthy people to make large, long-lasting healthy lifestyle changes,” said lead author Bonnie Spring at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. With the help of a smartphone app, a wearable activity tracker, some social support from a coach and a small financial incentive, study participants made large improvements in their eating and activity habits. From a starting point of less than two servings of fruits and vegetables per day, they increased their intake by 6.5 servings per day. They decreased saturated fat intake by 3.6 percent to consume less than 8 percent of their calories from saturated fat. From a baseline of 4.5 hours per day of leisure screen time, they decreased screen time by almost three hours and increased their moderate to vigorous exercise by 25 minutes per day over a nine-month trial. Previous research has found that healthy behavior change usually reverts once financial incentives cease. But this study stopped offering the financial incentive after only 12 weeks, and participants still achieved positive results throughout the nine-month trial. The blueberry component pterostilbene has potent anti-myeloma activity  Tongji University (China), June 23, 2022 Investigators at Tongji University School of Medicine Zero  stated, “Multiple myeloma (MM) is an incurable hematologic malignancy because of its drug resistance. Pterostilbene (Pter) is found mainly in blueberries and grapes.” The effects of Pter and its exact pharmacologic mechanisms on chemoresistant myeloma are not known. Herein, we investigated the anti-myeloma activity of Pter in bortezomib-resistant cell line H929R and explored the related mechanism of action for the first time. We found that Pter inhibited proliferation of H929R cells and promoted apoptosis of the cells through a caspase-dependent pathway, loss of mitochondrial membrane potential, and activation of Akt and p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) signaling pathways. DNA damage and S-phase arrest might be involved in Pter-related toxicity in H929R cells.  The research concluded: “These data supported that Pter might be a promising natural compound for relapsed/refractory myeloma therapy, especially against myeloma resistant to bortezomib chemotherapy.” Exercise makes the blood of obese people healthier Exercise can reduce inflammation in obese people by changing the characteristics of their blood, according to new research published in The Journal of Physiology. University of Illinois, June 20, 2022 Many of the health problems linked to obesity are a result of chronic inflammation. Inflammation is a natural process in the body in response to harm, but in obese people it can become long term and this can lead to damage of healthy tissue. Certain blood cells are more likely to cause inflammation, and if these cells are made in the body in greater numbers than normal they can spread to organs in the body and cause them to malfunction. The blood cells responsible for causing inflammation are formed from stem cells within the body.  This new research is the first to show that exercise alters the characteristics of these blood forming stem cells and therefore reduces the number of blood cells likely to cause inflammation. These findings provide a new explanation of how exercise may improve health in adults with obesity. Young, lean adults and young, obese adults (who were otherwise healthy) were recruited for this study.  The exercise program consisted of three bicycling or treadmill running sessions per week with each session lasting approximately one hour. Blood was collected before and after the exercise training intervention to quantify blood-forming stem cells. The results of the study demonstrated that exercise reduced the number of blood-forming stem cells associated with the production of the type of blood cells responsible for inflammation. People who go to bed late have less control over OCD symptoms Binghamton University, June 24, 2022 A late bedtime is associated with lower perceived control of obsessive thoughts, according to new research from Binghamton University, State University of New York. Binghamton University Professor Meredith E. Coles monitored twenty individuals diagnosed with OCD and ten individuals endorsing subthreshold OCD symptoms during one week of sleep. Participants completed sleep diaries and daily ratings of perceived degree of control over obsessive thoughts and ritualized behaviors. The researchers found that previous night's bedtime significantly predicted participants' perceived ability to control their obsessive thoughts and compulsive behavior on the subsequent day. “We're really interested in how this kind of unusual timing of sleep might affect cognitive functioning,” said Schubert. “It might be that something about shifting the timing of your sleep might reduce your ability to control your thoughts and your behaviors, so it might make it more likely that you're going to have a hard time dismissing intrusive thoughts characteristic of obsessions, and it might make it more difficult for you to refrain from compulsive behaviors that are designed to reduce the anxiety caused by obsessive thoughts.” On average participants in the study went to bed around 12:30 at night. Patients who met criteria for delayed sleep phase disorder, about 40% of the sample, went to bed around 3 a.m. Green tea-capsaicin-ginger combo linked to weight and metabolic improvements Kashan University of Medical Sciences (Iran), June 24, 2022 Dietary supplements containing green tea, capsaicin and ginger extracts may lead to weight loss and improvements in BMI, says a new study. Data from the randomized double-blind placebo-controlled clinical trial involving 50 overweight women also produced beneficial changes in insulin levels, and measure of insulin resistance. “Our study indicated that taking green tea, capsaicin and ginger co-supplements for 8 weeks among overweight women had beneficial effects on weight, BMI, markers of insulin metabolism and plasma [glutathione] levels,” wrote the scientists.  Women were assigned to consume daily supplements containing 500 mg green tea, 100 mg capsaicin, and 200 mg ginger extracts, while another 25 women were assigned to consume placebo. After eight weeks, the results showed that, in addition to the improvements in body weight and BMI, women receiving the extracts showed significant decreases in serum insulin concentrations (-2.6 µIU/mL) compared to the placebo (-0.6 µIU/mL). Insulin resistance, as measured by HOMA-IR, also improved compared to placebo, while levels of the antioxidant enzyme glutathione also improved in the women consuming the green tea, capsaicin and ginger supplements (+73.8 µmol/L), while levels decreased in the women receiving placebo (-28.3 µmol/L).

New Rule: How the Left Was Lost | Real Time (HBO) HEALTH NEWS Grape consumption may offer benefits for symptomatic knee osteoarthritis Bad habits that lead to cancer, chronic disease corrected by simple lifestyle intervention The blueberry component pterostilbene has potent anti-myeloma activity Exercise makes the blood of obese people healthier People who go to bed late have less control over OCD symptoms Green tea-capsaicin-ginger combo linked to weight and metabolic improvements Grape consumption may offer benefits for symptomatic knee osteoarthritis Texas Woman's University, June 20, 2022 New research suggests that regular grape consumption may help alleviate pain associated with symptomatic osteoarthritis of the knee, and improve joint flexibility and overall mobility. Researchers attribute these potential benefits to the polyphenols found in grapes. The sixteen week clinical study, undertaken by Texas Woman's University, was designed to investigate the benefits of grape consumption on inflammation and osteoarthritis outcomes. 72 men and women with knee osteoarthritis (OA) were assigned to either consume grapes in the form of a whole grape freeze-dried powder, or a placebo powder. The study results showed that both men and women consuming a grape-enriched diet had a significant decrease in self-reported pain related to activity and an overall decrease in total knee symptoms. This beneficial effect was more pronounced in females. Additionally, age-related differences were observed: there was a 70% increase in very hard activity for those under 64 years of age consuming the grape powder, while those receiving the placebo reported a significant decrease in very hard activity. Participants over 65 years, whether consuming grapes or the placebo, reported a decline in moderate to hard activities. Evidence of increased cartilage metabolism was observed in men consuming the grape-enriched diet; they had higher levels of an important cartilage growth factor (IGF-1) than those on placebo. This protective effect was not observed in the females. T Bad habits that lead to cancer, chronic disease corrected by simple lifestyle intervention Northwestern University, June 19, 20122 Does this sound like someone you know? He or she spends too much time in front of screens, gets little exercise and eats a diet high in fat and low in fruits and vegetables. It likely sounds familiar because it describes a significant portion of the U.S. population. A new Northwestern Medicine study found that a lifestyle intervention could fully normalize these four unhealthy behaviors, which put people at risk of developing heart disease and common cancers, including breast, colon and prostate. “Our findings suggest that prevention of chronic disease through behavior change is feasible. They contradict the pessimistic assumption that it's not possible to motivate relatively healthy people to make large, long-lasting healthy lifestyle changes,” said lead author Bonnie Spring at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. With the help of a smartphone app, a wearable activity tracker, some social support from a coach and a small financial incentive, study participants made large improvements in their eating and activity habits. From a starting point of less than two servings of fruits and vegetables per day, they increased their intake by 6.5 servings per day. They decreased saturated fat intake by 3.6 percent to consume less than 8 percent of their calories from saturated fat. From a baseline of 4.5 hours per day of leisure screen time, they decreased screen time by almost three hours and increased their moderate to vigorous exercise by 25 minutes per day over a nine-month trial. Previous research has found that healthy behavior change usually reverts once financial incentives cease. But this study stopped offering the financial incentive after only 12 weeks, and participants still achieved positive results throughout the nine-month trial. The blueberry component pterostilbene has potent anti-myeloma activity  Tongji University (China), June 23, 2022 Investigators at Tongji University School of Medicine Zero  stated, “Multiple myeloma (MM) is an incurable hematologic malignancy because of its drug resistance. Pterostilbene (Pter) is found mainly in blueberries and grapes.” The effects of Pter and its exact pharmacologic mechanisms on chemoresistant myeloma are not known. Herein, we investigated the anti-myeloma activity of Pter in bortezomib-resistant cell line H929R and explored the related mechanism of action for the first time. We found that Pter inhibited proliferation of H929R cells and promoted apoptosis of the cells through a caspase-dependent pathway, loss of mitochondrial membrane potential, and activation of Akt and p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) signaling pathways. DNA damage and S-phase arrest might be involved in Pter-related toxicity in H929R cells.  The research concluded: “These data supported that Pter might be a promising natural compound for relapsed/refractory myeloma therapy, especially against myeloma resistant to bortezomib chemotherapy.” Exercise makes the blood of obese people healthier Exercise can reduce inflammation in obese people by changing the characteristics of their blood, according to new research published in The Journal of Physiology.

In this episode, Stephan explains how obesity has changed phenotypically over the course of human history as well as what might explain the dramatic increase in prevalence of obesity in the last few decades. He talks in depth about the role of genetics, the brain, and hormones like leptin play in the regulation of fat mass. He dives deep into two common theories of obesity—the carbohydrate-insulin model and the energy balance model and provides his take on which theory has stronger evidence. Additionally, he provides insights on how we're hard-wired to think about food and the consequences of modern foods designed for maximal pleasure. Finally, he goes through the factors that affect body weight, set points, and provides takeaways for people wanting to take advantage of what we know about the brain's role in regulating our body weight. We discuss: Stephan's neuroscience background and his focus on the nuances of obesity [2:15]; How obesity has changed for humans throughout history [8:00]; The association between obesity and adverse health outcomes, the “obesity paradox,” and confounders when relating BMI to longevity [14:00]; The sharp increase in obesity across demographics [23:30]; The hypothalamus and its role in obesity [30:00];  The role of the hormone leptin in obesity [40:00]; The genetic component of obesity [46:30]; Understanding the tendency of humans to store fat through an evolutionary lens [57:00];   The hedonic aspect of food, and how the brain reacts to modern, highly-rewarding foods [1:03:30]; How we are hard-wired to think about food [1:14:30]; A review of the “Carnivore diet” [1:21:45]; The energy balance model, carbohydrate-insulin model, and unifying the theories around adiposity [1:34:15]; Body weight set points: a hypothetical comparison of two individuals [1:41:45]; Takeaways for people who want to lose weight and keep it off [1:48:30]; Evidence that favors the energy balance model of weight gain [1:56:00]; The synergistic effect of fat and carbohydrates and observations that a low-fat diet or a low-carb diet can cause weight loss [2:04:30]; Red Pen Reviews [2:11:00]; More.

It turns out that the juice from beets may lower blood pressure in a sustained and lovely manner. Beets, you see, besides being a colorful vegetable, contain a high level of Nitrate (NO3-). And this is absorbed by the body and converted into nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is that amazing molecule that relaxes blood vessels and improves blood flow. How Your Body Gets Nitric Oxide The conversion of nitrate into nitrite, which is then converted into nitric oxide is a fun pathway. When you eat your greens (yes even lettuce has nitrates) your intestines absorb it and then it is secreted back into saliva where those bacteria in your mouth digest the nitrate (NO3-) into nitrite (NO2-)

Consumption of berries, fruits and vegetables and mortality among 10,000 Men Followed for four decades Folkhalsan Research Center (Norway), June 17, 2022 Investigators from Folkhalsan Research Center in Norway found that consumption of berries, fruits and vegetables and mortality among 10,000 Norwegian men followed for four decades "The association between vegetable and fruit consumption and risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease (CVD) has been investigated by several studies, whereas fewer studies have examined consumption of vegetables and fruits in relation to all-cause mortality. Studies on berries, a rich source of antioxidants, are rare." "The purpose of the current study was to examine the association between intake of vegetables, fruits and berries (together and separately) and the risk of all-cause mortality and cause-specific mortality due to cancer and CVD and subtypes of these, in a cohort with very long follow-up. We used data from a population-based prospective Norwegian cohort study of 10,000 men.  Men who in total consumed vegetables, fruit and berries more than 27 times per month had an 8-10 % reduced risk of all-cause mortality compared with men with a lower consumption. They also had a 20 % reduced risk of stroke mortality. Consumption of fruit was inversely related to overall cancer mortality, with hazard rate ratios of 0.94, 0.84 and 0.79 in the second, third and firth quartile, respectively, compared with the first quartile." According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Increased consumption of vegetables, fruits and berries was associated with a delayed risk of all-cause mortality and of mortality due to cancer and stroke."       UA researchers discover component of cinnamon prevents colorectal cancer in mice University of Arizona, June 15, 2022 Research conducted at the University of Arizona College of Pharmacy and the UA Cancer Center indicates that a compound derived from cinnamon is a potent inhibitor of colorectal cancer. Georg Wondrak, Ph.D., recently completed a study in which they proved that adding cinnamaldehyde, the compound that gives cinnamon its distinctive flavor and smell, to the diet of mice protected the mice against colorectal cancer. In response to cinnamaldehyde, the animals' cells had acquired the ability to protect themselves against exposure to a carcinogen through detoxification and repair. Given cinnamon's important status as the third-most-consumed spice in the world,' Wondrak adds, 'there's relatively little research on its potential health benefits. If we can ascertain the positive effects of cinnamon, we would like to leverage this opportunity to potentially improve the health of people around the globe.' Drs. Wondrak and Zhang's study, 'Nrf2-dependent suppression of azoxymethane/dextrane sulfate sodium-induced colon carcinogenesis by the cinnamon-derived dietary factor cinnamaldehyde,' has been published in Cancer Prevention Research later this spring.         Lean tissue benefit of protein supplementation affirmed Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (Brazil), June 17, 2022.  A “systematic review of systematic reviews” published  in Sports Medicine showed that the addition of protein supplementation to resistance training is associated with a greater increase in lean body mass (body mass minus fat mass) in comparison with resistance training alone.  Researchers in Brazil selected 46 studies in the meta-analyses involved a total of 2,925 men and women over 50 years of age. Supplemented groups received 12 to 40 grams of protein or 3 to 10 grams of amino acids while the control groups received a placebo or no supplementation. Among the 4 meta-analyses that evaluated lean body mass, 3 found a significant increase in association with resistance training plus protein supplementation compared to resistance training without supplementation. There was also a significant benefit for protein supplementation combined with training on muscle mass alone. “It is possible to conclude that protein supplementation associated with resistance training induces greater increases in lean body mass compared with resistance training alone in older participants. In addition, it is suggested that the effect of protein supplementation on lean body mass is extended to the increase in muscle mass, while no additional effect of protein supplementation was observed on muscle strength in older adults.”       Study shows inhaled toxic particles take direct route from lungs to brain University of Birmingham, June 20, 2022 Breathing in polluted air could lead to toxic particles being transported from lungs to brain, via the bloodstream—potentially contributing to brain disorders and neurological damage, a new study reveals. Scientists have discovered a possible direct pathway used by various inhaled fine particles through blood circulation with indications that, once there, the particles stay longer in the brain than in other main metabolic organs. The scientists revealed they had found various fine particles in human cerebrospinal fluids taken from patients who had experienced brain disorders—uncovering a process which may result in toxic particulate substances ending up in the brain. "The data suggests that up to eight times the number of fine particles may reach the brain by traveling, via the bloodstream, from the lungs than pass directly via the nose—adding new evidence on the relationship between air pollution and detrimental effects of such particles on the brain."   Turmeric: A Wellness Promoting Tonic At Low Doses, Research Reveals Ohio State University, June 12, 2022 A study published in the Nutrition Journal   holds great interest among those on the fence about using dietary supplements to improve the quality and perhaps length of their lives, but for which clinical proof is lacking. The study was conducted in healthy middle aged people (40–60 years old) with a low dose of curcumin (80 mg/day) in a fat soluble (lipidated) form.  Two groups of 19 subjects were given either curcumin or placebo for 4 weeks. Blood and saliva samples were taken before and after the 4 weeks and analyzed for the following blood and saliva measures relevant to health promotion The positive results were reported as follows: Curcumin lowered triglycerides, but not cholesterol (note: lowering cholesterol may harm human health). Curcumin increased plasma contents of nitric oxide, a molecule that can work against high blood pressure, as well as lowering plasma concentrations of sICAM, a molecule linked to atherosclerosis. Curcumin raised plasma myeloperoxidase concentrations, without raising C-reactive protein and ceruloplasmin values – a sign of normal and inflammation-related neutrophil function. Curcumin reduced salivary amylase activities, which are an indicator of sympathetic nervous system stress. Curcumin raised salivary radical scavenging capacities, an indicator of reduced oxidative stress.· Curcumin reduced plasma contents of beta amyloid protein, a marker for brain aging and Alzheimer's disease. Curcumin reduced ALT liver enzyme activities, a marker for liver injury.   Natural cocoa consumption: Potential to reduce atherogenic factors? University of North Texas, June 17, 2022 According to news reporting in University of North Texas, research stated, "Short-term consumption of flavanol-rich cocoa has been demonstrated to improve various facets of vascular health. The purpose of the present study was to determine the effect of 4 weeks of natural cocoa consumption on selected cardiovascular disease (CVD) biomarkers in young (19-35 years) women of differing body mass indices (BMI)." "Subjects (n=24) consumed a natural cocoa-containing product (12.7 g natural cocoa, 148 kcal/serving) or an isocaloric cocoa-free placebo daily for 4 weeks in a random, double-blind manner with a 2-week washout period between treatment arms.  Natural cocoa consumption resulted in a significant decrease in haptoglobin, EMP concentration and monocyte CD62L in obese compared to overweight and normal-weight subjects. Natural cocoa consumption regardless of BMI group was associated with an 18% increase in high-density lipoprotein and a 60% decrease in EMPs. Also, obese subjects experienced a 21% decrease in haptoglobin and a 24% decrease in monocyte CD62L expression in following 4 weeks of natural cocoa consumption. Collectively, these findings indicate that acute natural cocoa consumption was associated with decreased obesity-related disease risk."

Many of our interactions and experiences in childhood contribute to the body image we have as adults. In today's episode, Pediatric Registered Dietitian Riley Peterson joins us to share her advice on raising body-positive kids. Riley fell into her line of work after her experience working with children during her time as a clinical dietitian in a hospital. She noticed that a lot of parents & doctors alike were concerned with their children's height, weight, and body image and can see how these stresses were not serving the parents or the child.  Since then, Riley has dedicated her work to helping parents foster food neutrality and body positivity in their children.In this episode, Riley shares the preventative measures that parents can take to avoid triggering a negative body image in their children, how they can teach their kids about health in a neutral manner, and what they can do to foster body positivity in their kids.  She also discusses the double-edged sword that is the BMI percentile charts, and how parents can approach and navigate that conversation with their children & doctor.

With the SCOTUS Roe v. Wade ruling quickly approaching, we'd like to share 5 mistakes to avoid in a post Roe v. Wade society. It's no secret that women's health rights are at risk. But according to Dr. Sophia Yen — a birth control and adolescent reproductive expert — countless women are looking to make the following five birth control and contraception blunders: >> MISTAKE #1: DELETE YOUR PERIOD TRACKERS Digital period trackers and apps can be subpoenaed in court to prove past missed periods (potential pregnancies) - and assist in confirming a suspected abortion.  >> MISTAKE #2: PLAN C IS NOT CONTRACEPTION Plan C, unlike Plan B, is not a form of emergency contraception. It is a form of medical abortion.  >> MISTAKE #3: PLAN B HAS BMI LIMITATIONS The Plan B pill is less effective on women with a BMI of 25+, while options such as ELLA are effective on women with a BMI up to 31.  >> MISTAKE #4: YOU CAN SAFELY QUIT YOUR PERIOD With the fear of a birth control and femine health product shortage, Dr. Yen urges young women to consider skipping their periods - it is a safe and healthy option for those who are interested!  >> MISTAKE #5: MY DOCTOR IS TELLING ME EVERYTHING Many doctors, such as OBG/YNs, are not experts in one topic (periods, birth control, etc.) - Speak with expert doctors if you are concerned about your birth control or emergency contraception options that work best for your body type and lifestyle.  To solve these types of mistakes, I can also suggest checking out Pandia Health – a tool for connecting women to birth control and emergency contraception through expert doctors and expert care.

#736 - David Martin The David Martin Interview is featured on The Paul Leslie Hour. Are you here? Okay! Everyone's here. It's The Paul Leslie Hour and you're welcome here. This is an interview from the archives with songwriter David Martin, known for being a part of the songwriting group of Arnold, Martin & Morrow. Now… David Martin lives and breathes the songs.  Chances are, you've heard something David Martin wrote.  His songs have sold over 26 million records around the world, but all stories have a beginning.  For the British singer-songwriter, he began his career as a member of the group Butterscotch on RCA Records.   Soon after, he formed a songwriting partnership with Chris Arnold and Geoff Morrow.  The partnership resulted in many the composition of many songs recorded by the true legends of recorded music, including Cliff Richard, Wayne Newton, Dusty Springfield, Cilla Black, and Mama Cass. The legendary Elvis Presley recorded four of their songs: “Let's Be Friends,” “A Little Bit of Green,” “Sweet Angeline” and “This is the Story.” Quick side note, how many of you are planning on seeing the new movie simply entitled “ELVIS” releasing on June 24th? We can't wait… Now, one of the songs David Martin wrote has brought many smiles to the world.  David Martin's song “Can't Smile Without You” would become a pop standard and worldwide hit after being recorded by Barry Manilow.  Manilow was not the first, nor the last artist to record the song.  The Carpenters, Engelbert Humperdinck, Vic Damone, Andy Williams, Gino Cunico and others would perform and record their own versions.  The song has been performed countless times in concert, been featured in motion pictures. The song earned Martin three BMI awards for over 3 million airplays. Although HE continues to write songs, he is still very much a singer. He has a great admiration for the great songwriters of the American Songbook, those lyricists and composers who wrote the standards: Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Harold Arlen, Johnny Mercer and Sammy Cahn.  It is his love for these American classics that resulted in his album “Silky Smooth Moments.”  Accompanied by the Terry Coffey Trio, David Martin sings standards like “I'll Be Seeing You” and “In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning,” and one written by David Martin himself. It's a beautiful gesture from David Martin.  Although he has accomplished so much with his own songs, he pays tribute to the great songwriters who came before him.  We invite you into the world and passion of David Martin, where songs with great messages never die.  They endure.

Welcome back to our weekend Cabral HouseCall shows!   This is where we answer our community's wellness, weight loss, and anti-aging questions to help people get back on track!   Check out today's questions:    Jenna: I just listened to your podcast explaining Inositol for blood sugar balance and improving insulin sensitivity. I don't have PCOS symptoms, but I do believe I am insulin resistant. However, I trend towards bouts of hypoglycemia once I get that blood sugar crash which happens frequently. I wanted to know if Inositol (or even the EquiLife blood gluco support) would be more beneficial or more harmful for someone dealing with hypoglycemia?   Emily: Hi dr Cabral! I lived in a place for a few years that sprayed insecticides frequently indoors. I now worry about what that could do to my health. Any suggestions on detoxing any harmful effects or anything I should test for?   Jenn: Hi Dr. Cabral, thank you for all you do. I am a huge fan of doing your seven day detox every quarter and have had great results. I was wondering what your thoughts are on Humic extract if you have worked with it and whether or not you find it helpful for gut health. Thank you so much.   Sean: What product for inositol do you recommend?   Stephanie: Hey Dr. Cabral, thank you so much for committing to taking the time to answer our questions. I'm a Vata 26 year old body type and I've had amenorrhea for over 3y since coming off birth control. I'm IHP L2, ran the big 5 labs, did all the protocols over a year ago, progesterone support, all that jaz. My symptoms have dramatically improved and the only issue I'm having is the lack of period. Went to top endocronologists, ran MRI, scans and everything is normal. An an IHP I know all of my hormones are low including estrogen. Took DHEA for 12 weeks as well, progesterone & estrogen support but nothing. It looks like it's an issue with the hypothalamus/pituitary itself whereby my LH is not high enough for me to ovulate thus functional hypothalamic amenorrhea. Eating plenty of calories, and have gained weight since to reach a BMI of 22 but nothing yet. Since I'm not in a rush to get pregnant, the endo recommended to just wait and see what happens but suggested taking a very very small dose of bioidentical estrogen to support bones in the meantime. What are your thoughts? I obviously don't want to take them but I'm concerned about my bones.   Stephanie: Me again! I forgot to mention that my TSH continues to go down which is very weird. I'm fully aware of the root causes as an IHP 2 and it's definitely not heavy metals, fluoride, lack of minerals, etc. It started at 2.3 and now is up to 3.3. Do you think this could due to the hypothalamic amenorrhea?   Thank you for tuning into today's Cabral HouseCall and be sure to check back tomorrow where we answer more of our community's questions!    - - - Show Notes and Resources: StephenCabral.com/2325 - - - Get a FREE Copy of Dr. Cabral's Book: The Rain Barrel Effect - - - Join the Community & Get Your Questions Answered: CabralSupportGroup.com - - - Dr. Cabral's Most Popular At-Home Lab Tests: > Complete Minerals & Metals Test (Test for mineral imbalances & heavy metal toxicity) - - - > Complete Candida, Metabolic & Vitamins Test (Test for 75 biomarkers including yeast & bacterial gut overgrowth, as well as vitamin levels) - - - > Complete Stress, Mood & Metabolism Test (Discover your complete thyroid, adrenal, hormone, vitamin D & insulin levels) - - - > Complete Food Sensitivity Test (Find out your hidden food sensitivities) - - - > Complete Omega-3 & Inflammation Test (Discover your levels of inflammation related to your omega-6 to omega-3 levels) - - - Get Your Question Answered On An Upcoming HouseCall: StephenCabral.com/askcabral - - - Would You Take 30 Seconds To Rate & Review The Cabral Concept?

"The Lord's memorial is the central mystery of our Christian life. It has taken the form of a meal at which He offers Himself as the food. We were taught this in the Communion instruction of our childhood; we hear it repeated again and again in sermons and retreats; we read it in religious books. Yet are we really aware of the stupendousness of the thought?" Romano Guardini (1885-1968) was a German priest and academic, regarded to be one of the most important Catholic intellectual figures of the 20th century. He authored numerous books and was a major influence on such Catholic thinkers as Josef Pieper, Luigi Giussani and Joseph Ratzinger, among others. He declined a cardinalship offered by Pope Paul VI in 1965, and his cause for canonization was opened in December 2017 by the Archdiocese of Munich and Freising. Guardini was particularly influential in the area of liturgy. The work from which this reflection comes, Meditations Before Mass, originated as a series of discourses offered in preparation for the celebration of Mass. "Their purpose," Guardini writes, "was simply to reveal what the Mass demands of us and how those demands may be properly met." This particular meditation can serve as a helpful preparation for the coming Solemnity of Corpus Christi.

Let's face it, we live in a culture that allows for fatphobia. Where mocking larger bodies is socially acceptable. A culture that glorifies a certain body type as the epitome of “health.” This has created a lot of issues in maternal health care, and healthcare as a whole. This also makes those living in larger bodies feel as if size correlates to health. This causes internalized fatphobia, thinking that all their ailments are due to their size. “Just lose weight,” they're often told. The weight stigma in the medical system often shames larger bodied folks into not receiving the care they really need. In this episode we are joined by Brooke Patmor to discuss how fatphobia affects not only larger people, but all of us in some way or the other. A lot of people constantly live under the stress of gaining weight and often may resort to fad diets to fit in, causing adverse health outcomes. Because let's be honest, most of those fad diets aren't about health, but about being smaller. Brooke joins us to discuss how it is never okay to discuss and police someone's body size. Especially not while they are pregnant or postpartum, being in an already vulnerable state. So what is really going on? And is it really just that they need to lose weight? Does “optimal” weight really equate to health? If a pregnancy is labeled as high risk only because of the birther's BMI then is it really evidence-based? And where did the BMI even come from? Join this revealing episode with the amazing Brooke to learn more about fatphobia. We discuss the barriers faced by large bodies in the birthing world; what is really going on, how to be size inclusive in birth work and how we can support our larger bodied clients better.

It's an irritating way to start the day. You can't find your car keys. You already lost your spare set, so you have to search your house, you finally find them in the pants you wore yesterday, and by the time you get to work, you're ten minutes late. And that morning, you had a big meeting. Since you were late, the boss gave a sale to your rival, who you were trying to beat for associate of the quarter, and you really needed that bonus. You get to your desk, and spend an hour looking for the folder you need for your conference call, and finally remember that you left it in the copy room yesterday. When you get there, it's buried under a stack of other stuff and it takes you ten minutes to find it. You're now five minutes late to the conference call, and as a result the manager tells you she's going a different direction on the project. Your whole day is shot, because of lost keys and misplaced folders. Does this sound familiar? If so, this episode is for you. I've got a question for you: What's your system? What's your strategy for getting things done in the most efficient way, always having the things you need to do your work and live your life?  I'm going to tell you twelve reasons why you need to be more organized, and then I'm going to share six secrets to developing life-proof systems to help you avoid days like the one we just talked about. Disorganization and chaos can make our lives much more stressful than they already are. And who wants that? I'm here to tell you, friend: in my world I cannot survive without a solid organizational plan. Why? Because systems keep you sane. I need to confess that as intelligent as I am, as accomplished as I am, at my baseline my mind is a disorganized mess. I struggle with being easily distracted, and I learned a long time ago that if I was going to be successful, I had to get organized. Now I'm not alone in this. In fact, a huge percentage of type-A, hyper-performing people have what today is called "Adult ADD." When I was a kid, the teachers called us 'hyperactive,' but fortunately I had parents and teachers who were wise enough to let me be myself. They never let me feel like something was wrong with me because I paced a lot, tapped my pencil when I had to sit still for a long time, or seemed to be distracted when they were trying to teach me. Instead of assuming I wasn't listening, they learned to say, "Did you hear me?" And I had, every time. I just didn't need to look at them to hear. The big surprise for me was when I got to medical school and found myself in a school full of people just like me. Parents, be patient with your kids, learn how they learn, and try to maximize their opportunities before you let someone label or medicate them when they're not acting exactly like everyone else. Sure, some people need help and have real problems with learning and behavior.  But a lot of folks just need to develop a system to manage their minds, their lives and their behaviors.  If you struggle with keeping your mind on track long enough to get off to work without forgetting your cell phone, then you need a system.  If you have a hard time focusing on one task because a lot of things are vying for your attention, you need a system. If you feel like you waste a lot of time during the day, and you're not as productive as you need to be, you need a system. It's really cute when your five-year-old forgets something and shrugs, smiles adorably, and asks for your help. It's not cute when your classmate has to borrow your calculator, every day. Or when your forty-five-year-old lawyer gets to your deposition and forgot your case files. Systems keep you sane. For me it works like this: I put everything I need to have with me in the same place, every day. My keys, glasses, wallet, watch, anti-Zombie spray, and hand grenades in a certain place, all together, every day when I get home from work. I'm just kidding about the hand grenades. Those are illegal. But seriously, all my stuff is right next to my sock and underwear drawer, and unless I want to leave the house without underwear and socks on, all my important stuff is right in front of me where I'd have to work hard to forget it.   I promise, if I ever get out of sequence in how I dress, or if I leave my wallet somewhere else, I will absolutely get to work without it. What's amazing to me is how I can literally have no idea I've forgotten my wallet, and then as soon as I realize it my brain can absolutely feel its absence in my pocket. I'll feel my not-wallet in there like a splinter under my skin until I go home and get it.  Why don't I feel the not-wallet sensation until later in the day when I need my wallet? No idea. But it's true.  No system, no wallet. Or keys, etc. The same thing is true at work. If I don't discipline myself I'm the total absent-minded professor. I'll get to surgery without my MRI scans, with no prescription pad, and my reflex hammer is still in the car. It's true. I have learned of myself over the course of my life that if I do not enforce a strict organizational system I am stunningly capable of Alzheimer's-level forgetfulness. Listen: if you struggle with disorganization, frequently forgetting things, not having what you need, etc., you need systems. As Henry Kissinger said, if you don't know where you're going, every road will lead you nowhere. Systems keep you sane. Here are twelve reasons you need systems: (These were inspired by a great article on evancarmichael.com) 1. Systems help you be more focused on what you want to achieve. You can stop getting sidetracked by the things you forgot and instead keep knocking out the things you need to do. 2. Systems help you be more productive. You increase your brain power by eliminating a lot of stuff you've always worried about- you'll know where things are, when things need to happen, and you'll have a system in place to keep track of your work and your life. 3. Systems help you manage your time more effectively.  4. Systems help you do your work more economically. No more rushing out on the business trip to replace the cell phone charger you left at home. 5. Systems help you reduce the clutter in your workspace and reduce your stress levels. Systems improve your brain chemistry. 6. Systems help you achieve more balance in your life. 7. Systems help you set and achieve your goals in a more efficient manner. 8. Systems help you present a more positive business image. Scrub techs have amazing systems to prepare for a case. Imagine a scrub that didn't strategically design how they prepared the instruments for your brain surgery. Chaos... when I see a messy scrub tech, I look for a new one.  9. Systems help you prioritize your tasks. 10. Systems help you be more flexible and more creative. Your brain power isn't being sapped by worrying where you left your briefcase, so it's got the juice to think up new things. 11. Systems help you achieve more energy and enthusiasm. Confidence soars when you know you're squared away. 12. Systems help you achieve freedom from chaos.  Doesn't it sound like you need systems in your life? I hope by now that you're convinced that developing and maintaining organizational systems will help your life. Now we know the why, and I'm going to give you the how. Here are my six secrets to developing life-proof systems: 1. Create backups for things you need. I have a 'go bag.' It's a bag full of stuff that will ruin a trip if we forget it. It's got backup power cords for our phones, certain medicines and supplies that will get us through a couple of days if the airline loses our bags or if somehow I forget something. It stays in my carryon bag all the time, and if I ever have to use it, I immediately make a note to myself with a calendar reminder to replace the used item. This might sound silly, but the first time you have a lost bag or a migraine or an allergy attack in a distant town where you can't get to a pharmacy, you'll thank me. It's a backup, to my tendency to forget some things, and to protect us from someone else losing our luggage. Of course, this does not only apply to travel. If there's anything that your successful day at work depends on, your safety or happiness is frequently at risk over, etc., build a system with backups to handle it. I'm not saying that you should keep blank anniversary, birthday and Valentine's Day cards in your sock drawer in case you forget... but could that sort of thing save the day for you once in a while? It's part of my system to have a backup in place. Don't just have a plan A. Life is too great of an offensive coordinator for you to think that you can run the same play over and over and win. You have to be ready, and backups help a lot. 2. Create failsafes for important data. This sounds similar, but it's different. Failsafes are subsystems I put in place in case of some major problem arising. If I'm giving a talk, what if the computer doesn't have the right kind of port for my memory card? I have a failsafe: all my books, talks, blog posts, everything I write is backed up online via Dropbox.com, and on an external hard drive I can take with me in case my laptop decides to die, and on my computer's hard drive and an SD card. Sounds excessive, until you've given enough talks to know that sometimes you get somewhere and their WiFi isn't working so you can't get to Dropbox, your computer is a Mac and they don't have the right connections for the projector, even though they said they would, and their old Dell laptop doesn't have an SD card slot. Failsafe: my presentation is also on a USB hard drive, so we're still good. Oh, and POW, they don't have Keynote on their PC, so my presentation isn't compatible! Disaster? No. I also saved in Powerpoint format in case I ran into any dinosaurs, I mean PC people who haven't yet seen the Keynote light... Failsafes keep you from, well, failing. They're an essential part of the systems that keep me successful at all times. And no just with data. Can you think of areas of your life that would be improved if you implemented backups and failsafes?  3. Use repetition to create synapses, muscle memory, improve brain power by removing conscious thought from frequently needed items/tasks/etc. 4. Never rely on memory. It's unreliable, no matter how smart you are. Make checklists, and develop a discipline and practice of using them. Save your brain for the important stuff, not remembering the toothpaste. Set phone alarms. If you use Gmail, you already have a free calendar that will send you alerts on your cell phone. Why keep letting the same issues hold you back? Use systems. 5. Use Evernote. In this day and age, it's silly to keep bumping into the same problems over and over again when there are so many, and often free, powerful tools to help us organize our lives.  I use Evernote everyday. It's the note keeping, digital information organizer that's made a huge difference in my life. Even the free version is super-powerful. Lisa and I use the pro version and it's awesome. I actually write podcasts and blog posts in Evernote first. It syncs across all my devices, works offline, and saves me tons of frustration. Check it out at Evernote.com. Michael Hyatt has a vast number of blog posts about how to maximize Evernote to help you. Please do yourself a favor and check them out.  6. Care about it. The most important aspect of successfully implementing systems into your life is to care that you don't forget things. To have it bother you when you're late, when you can't find something, or when you underperform because you had to scramble to manage something a system would have prevented. Let me tell you a secret: my systems kept me alive and kept our business running when my son died. I have so much of the mechanical parts of my life systematized that in those months after we lost Mitch, I didn't have to think about where my keys were. Muscle memory kept me hanging them in the same spot, reaching for them the next day without having to think about it. I didn't have to wonder where my prescription pad or coffee cup were, or my when my bills were going to be paid, or anything like that, because of having systems in place. In those weeks when all we could do was breathe in and out, having the calendar pop up and remind me to pay the mortgage was a lifesaver. Systems keep you sane. They can save your life.  We're grownups now, and it's time to stop struggling over things that can be automated and systematized.  Systems keep you sane and they set you free. And let me just add this: Not having a system IS a system. It's just a terrible one. Now you might be wondering what all this has to do with starting today? I'm glad you asked.  1. Past losses can teach us, but they can't define us. Labels are rarely true, and when they are, they can be changed. "That's just the way I am," isn't cute anymore when it costs you your job. We aren't stuck with "I'm just ADD, and it makes me forgetful," or "I'm just a messy person." It if keeps hurting you, change it. 2. Massive change requires massive action. It takes at least three weeks to make a new habit. If you want to make a system that will really stick in your life and make a difference, you have to massively engage with it. It won't set in and become a part of your life if you don't fully embrace it. 3. If you want to feel better, do better.  If you're really tired of the consequences of being disorganized, stop wallowing in it. Change it with systems, backups, failsafes, lists, software. Care about it. 4. Peace is achievable in spite of circumstance. No matter what, if you divorce circumstance and marry the idea that you get to decide how you feel, you'll be happier.  Decide, purpose in your heart that disorganization and chaos are NO LONGER ACCEPTABLE TO YOU, Embrace the peace systems offer you. Embrace the sanity of systems. 5. The time to start is today. You start today. You can't change yesterday, and you can't control tomorrow. But you can decide that today you will become more organized and therefore more successful in your life.  Someone I love recently said, "Creative types are just messy people. It's how we are." I would submit to you, dear one, that organized, disciplined systems in your life, including housekeeping, cleanliness, orderliness in how your life and your things and your work environment will lead you to having more available brain power to be creative. It will improve your work and your life. Systems keep you sane. My friend, if you're not using systems, you're leaving a lot of your life on the table.  I hope this conversation has motivated you to look for places in your life where you can be more systematized. But motivation is useless unless you act on it.  Take massive action. Systems will help your brain, help your heart, and keep you sane. Take massive action. Embrace systems in your life. Get Evernote. Make lists, set alarms, automate things. Take massive action.  Stay safe, get smarter, and keep your sanity by embracing the idea that systems keep you sane. And start today. If you want to become healthier, feel better, and be happier, you have to start today. (Updated YST034 from the old You Start Today Podcast)

What if the nutrition & wellness standards we pressure ourselves to meet in order to be "healthy" are actually rooted in anti-blackness and white supremacy? How would that impact your approach to health? Maybe you've already experienced this at your yearly physical exam when all your lab work came back normal, but your doctor expressed "concern" that your weight wasn't within the "healthy" BMI range. The solution? Stay away from the cultural foods you were raised on and focus on shrinking your body. This shared experienced amongst many Black/Brown folx can leave us feeling defeated, shamed, and stressed and we struggle to meet standards that don't embrace who we are, where we come from, and what we look like. Rarely are factors like the stress of everyday discrimination, lack of access to food variety, lack of healthcare access, and medical systemic racism are rarely taken into consideration as health threats. In this week's episode, Dalina Soto, Your Latina Nutritionist, breaks down common myths about nutrition and health and shares with us how to begin taking a more positive approach to wellness. You might be surprised how much we have to unlearn.

For six years, the researchers followed 16,010 women who 70 years old or older, and 15,467 completed the final cognitive interviews. The researchers found those women who consumed five servings or more of nuts each week had higher scores on their cognitive testing compared to those who did not consume nuts. The average difference in scores was 0.08 units, which is equivalent to two years of cognition decline during the aging process. The mechanism may be related to the fact that nuts are heart-healthy. And nut consumption has been associated with cardiovascular healthand mortality in other research. Stress accelerates immune aging, study finds University of Southern California, June 13, 2022 Stress—in the form of traumatic events, job strain, everyday stressors and discrimination—accelerates aging of the immune system, potentially increasing a person's risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease and illness from infections such as COVID-19, according to a new USC study. The research, published  in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), could help explain disparities in age-related health, including the unequal toll of the pandemic, and identify possible points for intervention. USC researchers decided to see if they could tease out a connection between lifetime exposure to stress—a known contributor to poor health—and declining vigor in the immune system. As expected, people with higher stress scores had older-seeming immune profiles, with lower percentages of fresh disease fighters and higher percentages of worn-out white blood cells. The association between stressful life events and fewer ready to respond, or naive, T cells remained strong even after controlling for education, smoking, drinking, BMI and race or ethnicity. CoQ10 supplementation associated with lower pro-inflammatory factors in randomized trial Shahid Sadoughi University of Medical Sciences (Iran), June 8 2022.  A double-blind trial reported in a recent issue of the International Journal of Vitamin and Nutrition Research found a reduction in markers of inflammation in mildly hypertensive patients given coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) for twelve weeks. Participants who received CoQ10 also experienced an increase in adiponectin: a protein secreted by adipose tissue that has an anti-inflammatory effect and which has been found to be reduced in high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease. “Considering that coenzyme Q10 has attracted noticeable attention in recent years for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases and hypertension in regard to its effect on inflammatory factors such as cytokines, it is therefore hypothesized that supplementation with coenzyme Q10 reduces the proinflammatory factors,” write Nasim Bagheri Nesami of Iran's Shahid Sadoughi University of Medical Sciences and colleagues. “This study was conducted in order to determine the effects of coenzyme Q10 on proinflammatory factors as well as on adiponectin in patients with mild hypertension.” Sixty men and women were randomized to receive 100 milligrams CoQ10 or a placebo for a twelve week period. Plasma adiponectin, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP, a marker of inflammation) and the cytokines interleukin 2, interleukin6 and tumor necrosis factor-alpha were measured before and after treatment. At the end of the study, participants who received CoQ10 had significant declines in interleukin-6 and hs-CRP compared with levels measured upon enrollment. They also experienced an increase in adiponectin, while levels in the placebo group slightly declined. Probiotics prevent deadly complications of liver disease Govind Ballabh Pant Hospital, New Delhi, India   June 6, 2022 Probiotics are effective in preventing hepatic encephalopathy in patients with cirrhosis of the liver, according to a new study in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology. Hepatic encephalopathy is a deterioration of brain function that is a serious complication of liver disease. “This rigorous new research finds that probiotics modify the gut microbiota to prevent hepatic encephalopathy in patients with cirrhosis of the liver,” said David W. Victor III, MD. “These results offer a safe, well-tolerated and perhaps cheaper alternative to current treatments.” When comparing treatment with probiotics versus placebo, the researchers found that the incidence of hepatic encephalopathy was lower in patients treated with probiotics.  Probiotic supplementation was not associated with any side effects and none of the patients required discontinuation of therapy. These results suggest that probiotics are similar in effectiveness to the current standard of care, lactulose, in the prevention of hepatic encephalopathy, yet they appear to be much better tolerated. The effectiveness of lactulose, a nonabsorbable disaccharide, is limited by side effects (diarrhea, bloating and gas) and a narrow therapeutic window.  Chelation therapy and vitamin supplements cut heart disease risk by over 25% Columbia University, June 9, 2022  A combination of high-dose multivitamins and chelation therapy may protect heart attack survivors from future cardiovascular events and death, according to a multicenter study published in the American Heart Journal. Intravenous chelation, in which the chemical ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) is injected into the bloodstream in order to bind to minerals and help flush them from the body, is an FDA-approved treatment for heavy metal poisoning that was first used during World War I.  “They're all in our environment. Any of us who are of an age to have been exposed to leaded gasoline have lead in our bones. If we get an infusion of EDTA, we'll have lead in our urine. It's just the way it is. And as you get older and become osteoporotic, that lead starts getting released.” In a randomized, double-blind trial, the researchers randomly assigned 1,708 stable heart attack survivors at 134 clinics across the United States to one of four experimental conditions: high-dose oral multivitamins plus chelation, chelation plus a vitamin-mimicking placebo, vitamins plus a chelation-mimicking placebo or double placebo. Participants had to get a 500 cc intravenous infusion once per week for 30 weeks, followed by another 10 infusions spaced two to eight weeks apart. All participants also had to take six large capsules daily. The researchers found that chelation alone led to a statistically significant 18 percent reduction in primary endpoint, relative to placebo. Chelation plus multivitamins led to a 26 percent reduction in risk over placebo. Chelation plus multivitamin also reduced the secondary endpoint by 34 percent, compared with placebo. Diabetic participants benefited even more dramatically. Among diabetics, chelation resulted in a 41 percent reduction in primary endpoint, while chelation plus vitamins resulted in a 51 percent reduction. The rate of all-cause mortality in diabetic patients dropped 43 percent with chelation alone, and the secondary endpoint was also reduced. Natural Pain Killer With Powerful Ability to Remove Blood Clots and Dead Tissue GreenMed Info, June 13th 2022  Serrapeptase, also known as serratiopeptidase or serralysin, is a systemic enzyme, specifically it is a proteolytic enzyme. Serrapeptase was first derived from a species of bacteria found in the intestine of the silkworm. The bacteria, Serratia mercesans E1, produces serrapeptase to help breakdown the silkworm coccoon to free the silk moth. A review study summarized that serrapeptase has immense applications in therapeutic areas which have been validated by several in vitro, in vivo, and clinical studies. “These applications are attributable to its versatile properties including anti-inflammatory, anti-biofilm, analgesic, anti-edemic, and fibrinolytic effects.” Serrapeptase has been used for a wide range of health concerns:  Serrapeptase for Joint Swelling Serrapeptase is effective in reducing post-operative joint swelling in comparison to other therapies such as applying ice.  Serrapeptase Dissolves Blood Clots, Dead Tissue, Biofilms Anticoagulants and antiplatelet drugs are used for managing cardiovascular diseases but they are unable to dissolve an existing blood clot. Serrapeptase dissolves a fibrin clot within a blood vessel.  Studies have shown that serrapeptase can digest dead tissues, blood clots, cysts, biofilm and arterial plaques.  Serrapeptase for Acute or Chronic Ear, Nose and Throat Conditions The Journal of International Medical Research published the results of a study evaluating the efficacy and tolerability of serrapeptase using a double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 193 subjects suffering from acute or chronic ear, nose or throat disorders. Patients treated with serrapeptase reported significant symptom regression within 3 – 4 days. It was concluded that serrapeptase “has anti-inflammatory, anti-oedemic and fibrinolytic activity and acts rapidly on localized inflammation.”  COVID-19 and Chronic Respiratory Conditions A 2021 study, showed, “Proteolytic enzymes can be useful in the treatment of nosocomial, viral, and resistant infections, especially in pediatric and geriatric age groups due to its relative safety, less tolerance and resistance and its synergic effects.”  Physicians have observed many COVID-19 cases with heart problems, kidney problems, and the presence of blood clots. Serrapeptase helps patients with chronic airway disease by reducing coughing and lessening viscosity of sputum. As a natural anticoagulant it interferes with platelet aggregation and the blood coagulation cascade. Serrapeptase has an anti-inflammatory impact on the tissue inflammation that contributes to the blood clot formation.
