METABOLIC SYNDROME: CAN WE AFFORD IT?

Monday, August 23rd, 2010

RADIO HEALTH PEARL #387 …brought to you by the Gesundheit! Nutrition Center.

Over-promoting carbohydrates in our daily diet is the primary cause of the Metabolic Syndrome epidemic, affecting at least 40% of the American people. This has had immediate results on insulin-production by our pancreas and insulin-resistance by our cells.

So here we are today with:

• Inflammatory disorders;

• Indigestion and weight gain around the waist;

• Blood-pressure issues;

• And, many instances of hypoglycemia and diabetes.

All these symptoms have us over-medicated, and make us miserable today. And thinking of how much better you felt twenty years ago, just imagine how much worse you may be and feel twenty years from now?

Will you be able to afford health care? Will health care be able to afford YOU?

Correctly increasing proteins, fats and minerals will naturally stop excess cravings for carbohydrate intake. And incorporating a practical exercise routine will help tremendously; as will the right essential nutrient supplements …at the Gesundheit! Nutrition Center on North 19th Avenue.

METABOLIC SYNDROME / SYNDROME-X

Monday, August 16th, 2010

Radio Health Pearl # 386 …brought to you by the Gesundheit! Nutrition Center.

America, and for that matter a large part of the western countries, are at an increasing risk of falling victim to SYNDROME-X, better known as the Metabolic Syndrome.

Metabolic Syndrome is a cluster of conditions, such as

• Increased blood pressure,

• Elevated insulin resistance,

• Excess body fat around the waist, and

• Abnormal cholesterol levels,

… that actually all occur together!

And TOGETHER they increase your risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes.

Symptoms include:

1. A waistline over 40 inches in men and over 35 inches in women;

2. HDL-Cholesterol of 40- or lower in men and 50- or lower in women;

3. Triglycerides higher than 150;

4. Fasting Glucose above 100;

5. And blood pressure of 130-over-85, or more

We owe it to ourselves, but also to the next generation, to not let the Metabolic Syndrome happen!
