Do I Just Hyper-Nourish for 6 Weeks? Dr. Brooke Goldner

I see this question SO often and I answer it in every Q&A. This is from a recent online Q&A:
.
While I do have a 6 week program, that is not a set time for you to work on your recovery.
.
FIrst of all, always hyper-nourish from now on,that is how you get the nutrition your body needs to reverse disease and continue to operate optimally.
.
If you are choosing to do an extreme program eating only hyper-nourishing foods for the fastest recovery possible, you do it until you are better, and then you can diversify your diet again.
That could be 10 days, 2 weeks, 4 weeks, 6 weeks, or 3 months or more.
You need to be patient, especially if you are doing it on your own from my books Goodbye Lupus and Goodbye Autoimmune Disease or from my online class at GoodbyeLupus.com, since it usually takes more time on your own than if I am overseeing your program.
.
Plan to stick with it until you feel better, there is no magic number, however there is magic to the Goodbye Lupus Protocol when you do it correctly!
.
I hope that helps!

Friend, in 10 minutes make this nutrient packed breakfast to feel energized all day – from Stephanie Spencer

Hello friend,

Do you ever feel like it’s time to change something about your daily eating habits because you just aren’t feeling right lately?

Many of us are intrigued after hearing about Whole Food Plant-Based (WFPB) nutrition, but may be hesitant to completely cut out meat and dairy, and fear that our family may not be open to this lifestyle change.

However, if you are ready to take steps to improve your health, I have found that it is much more doable to start by simply trying one Plant-Based dish.

My favorite WFPB starter recipe is my Morning Energy Smoothie.

It is packed with:

·        Fiber and lignans to optimize gut health, suppress cancer cells, lower cholesterol, and fight hunger (oat & flaxseed)

·        Omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants which counteract inflammation (berries and flax)

·        Nitric oxide to heal arterial lining for optimal heart health (leafy greens)

·        DNA repairing, cancer-suppressing sulforaphane (broccoli sprouts)

At the beginning of my Plant-Based journey, I was amazed at how good I felt every day after I started eating this smoothie for breakfast.

Instead of focusing on avoiding, it’s much more effective to choose new nourishing dishes that we love. Then it’s easier to let go of foods that aren’t helping us after we have the skills to make health-promoting whole foods on a regular basis that keep us full and energetic.

JUST START WITH A SMOOTHIE!  

Morning Energy Smoothie

1/4 cup broccoli sprouts*

1 cup baby kale or other leafy greens

1 1/2 TBSP flax seeds

handful uncooked steel-cut oats

½  cup frozen strawberries

½  cup frozen raspberries

½ cup frozen peaches

1-2 dates for added sweetness if needed

Unsweetened almond milk

fresh lemon juice to taste

​*Stephanie sells these at Central AR Farmer’s Markets and online at Arkansas Local Food Network (Natural State Microgreens) for weekly pick up in Little Rock, AR. You can also sprout your own!  But if you don’t have broccoli sprouts,  just add more leafy greens.​

Combine first 3 ingredients in a smoothie maker (I use a Nutribullet) or blender with about 1 inch of almond milk.  Blend to combine. Add remaining ingredients, adding more almond milk as needed to obtain desired consistency.  Enjoy with toasted sprouted grain bread with jelly or nut butter.

Contains 16 Gm of fiber with sprouted grain toast-this is more fiber than the average American gets in an entire day! Think you’ll still be hungry?  Have TWO slices of sprouted grain toast for 20 Gm fiber.  There’s no limits on serving size with a Whole Food Plant-Based Diet!

3 Things you need to know about barbecuing by Joel Fuhrman, MD

Before you fire up the grill, you should know that cancer-promoting substances are formed when meat is grilled.

Cooking and dining outdoors may be enjoyable when the weather is warm. But before you fire up the grill at  a backyard barbecue or a game-day tailgate, and reach for steaks, burgers or chicken, there’s something you should know: Research has shown that turning up the heat on meat can cause cancer-causing substances to form.

Here’s what that means and how to have a more healthful cookout.

1.  Grilled meat is too dangerous – avoid it completely.

Meats contain several harmful elements including animal protein, carnitine, arachidonic acid and heme iron.1-4  Several large, long-term studies have linked high-animal protein diets to greater risk of premature death.3,5,6 However, when you barbecue meat, you take it to a new level of danger.

When grilled or cooked at high temperatures, carcinogenic compounds are formed.

Carcinogens in meats include:

  • Heterocyclic amines (HCAs) – formed in hamburger, steak, chicken, and fish during the cooking process. Higher temperatures and longer cooking times increase HCA production.
  • Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) – These carcinogens form when meat is cooked over an open flame. When meat juices drip and the flame touches the meat, PAHs are formed.
  • N-nitroso compounds (NOCs) or nitrosamines – These are not formed during cooking. These are formed in the mouth and stomach from nitrate/nitrite preservatives found in processed meats.7 Processed meats, such as hot dogs and sausages should be completely avoided. NOCs are potent carcinogens.

According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of the World Health Organization, processed meats are carcinogenic to humans and red meats are probably carcinogenic to humans.8  Both are strongly linked to colorectal cancer risk.9  In addition, a high intake of processed meat is associated with heart disease, stroke and diabetes.10,11

Even if you choose to eat animal products once in a while or use them as a condiment, you should still never eat processed meat, and never eat meat grilled or barbecued – it’s too risky.

Joel Fuhrman, M.D. is a board-certified family physician, six-time New York Times bestselling author and internationally recognized expert on nutrition and natural healing, who specializes in preventing and reversing disease through nutritional methods. Dr. Fuhrman coined the term “Nutritarian” to describe his longevity-promoting, nutrient dense, plant-rich eating style.

For over 25 years, Dr. Fuhrman has shown that it is possible to achieve sustainable weight loss and reverse heart disease, diabetes and many other illnesses using smart nutrition. In his medical practice, and through his books and PBS television specials, he continues to bring this life-saving message to hundreds of thousands of people around the world.

 

 

Hurdles T. Colin Campbell Overcame To Make His Research Available To The Public – The Real Truth About Health Conference

For decades T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D. has been at the forefront of nutrition education and research. Dr. Campbell’s expertise and scientific interests encompass relationships between diet and disease, particularly the causation of cancer. His legacy, the China Project, is one of the most comprehensive studies of health and nutrition ever conducted. The New York Times has recognized the study as the “Grand Prix of epidemiology.”

Dr. Campbell is the coauthor of the bestselling book The China Study: Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss, and Long-term Health, and author of the New York Times bestseller Whole, and The Low-Carb Fraud. He is featured in several documentaries including the blockbuster Forks Over Knives, Eating You Alive, Food Matters, Plant Pure Nation and others. He is the founder of the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies and the online Plant-Based Nutrition Certificate in partnership with eCornell.

Dr. Campbell has conducted original research both in laboratory experiments and in large-scale human studies; received over 70 grant-years of peer-reviewed research funding (mostly with NIH), served on grant review panels of multiple funding agencies, actively participated in the development of national and international nutrition policy, authored over 300 research papers and given hundreds of lectures around the world.

He was trained at Cornell University (M.S., Ph.D.) and MIT (Research Associate) in nutrition, biochemistry, and toxicology. Dr. Campbell spent 10 years on the faculty of Virginia Tech’s Department of Biochemistry and Nutrition before returning to Cornell in 1975 where he presently holds his Endowed Chair as the Jacob Gould Schurman Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry in the Division of Nutritional Sciences.

The Benefits of Fasting for Healing – Dr. Michael Greger

Where did the idea of therapeutic fasting come from?

Doctor’s Note

Initially I had put off doing studies on fasting, since there were so few good studies, but there’s been an explosion in research interest in the last few years. Stay tuned for The World’s Largest Fasting Study.

I do have a bunch of studies already up on fasting and weight loss, though, due to my work on How Not to Diet:

Did you know that what you eat could be making you sick? It’s true. Some foods such as poultry, beef, and dairy clog your body with energy-depleting fats, toxins, and chemicals. Where can you find the optimum nourishment your body needs to stay strong, healthy, and vigorous? For millions of people, the answer is in the health and healing properties of living foods—foods that are eaten raw and produced without dangerous, nutrient-robbing chemicals or additives.
For more than forty years, Brian Clement has been teaching people how to cleanse and heal their bodies with naturally potent living foods. Brian explains why living foods are vital to good health.
