Ensure Better Brain Health and Lessen Your Risk for Alzheimer’s

Once believed to be a disease of the brain, it is becoming increasing understood that Alzheimer’s is a systemic disease affecting the brain. And it’s simply a myth that there is nothing that can be done to prevent, slow or even reverse the progress of cognitive decline or Alzheimer’s Disease. As a matter of fact, Dr. Dale Bredesen and his team from the Buck Institute for Research on Aging are showing that mild-to-moderate cognitive impairment can be successfully improved with a multi-modal Naturopathic/Functional approach. He is also showing that some patients are able to find full resolution of their symptoms and can return to leading normal and active lives. It’s very exciting to know that reversal of cognitive decline is possible with the use of targeted nutrients, therapeutic diets and comprehensive lifestyle interventions.

When helping my patients experiencing frequent memory loss, especially when it comes to aging, I look at two particular pathways in the body to assess their cognition. First would be whether or not their body is under any inflammation and second, whether or not their body is under any dysregulation when it comes to glucose management. The inflammation that results from hyperglycemia incites insulin resistance, disrupting hormone signaling resulting in cognitive impairment.

Natural Solutions to Enhancing Brain Health

Sleep Away Memory Loss

Getting adequate sleep is imperative. Adequate equates to minimally 7 hours, preferably 8 hours, of sleep each night. Your body’s ability to identify and remove the metabolic waste products that are deleterious to brain function happens while you sleep. Imagine the amount of waste accumulated if your city’s sanitation collectors went on strike for months leaving overflowing garbage bins to collect on the sidewalk. That is essentially what is happening to brain tissue when you chronically deprive your body of adequate sleep.

Jog Your Memory

Research is finding intermittent activity throughout the day is metabolically more beneficial than sporadic extended activity. If music makes you move download your favorite play list and set a goal to get up and move for one song every hour. Track your progress and see how your memory, speed of processing and focus improves!

Get Glutathione

Glutathione boosts your memory’s capacity and mental clarity because when given via an intravenous infusion, it crosses the blood/brain barrier immediately to deliver it’s powerful antioxidant protection. You can drop by the Vitamin Shot Bar times to get your glutathione push anytime!

Fast Your Brain

Extend the time between the last meal of the day and breakfast to as much as fifteen hours to optimize ketone production. A mild, controlled ketogenic diet can improve glucose dysregulation.

Train Your Brain

Give your memory a workout! Download BrainHQ app and build cognitive training into your daily routine. Just 5 to 10 minutes a day three to four times a week can enhance learning, memory, and cognition.

Test your Blood

One of the best ways to stave off a scary diagnosis like Alzheimer’s is to pay attention to your blood sugar. Know your fasting blood sugar, insulin, and hemoglobin A1C is important. More than 65% of my patients are shocked when they see their results as they thought that they were “healthy eaters”. High blood sugar levels (e.g. diabetes) pointedly increase risk for developing dementia, by about 60%.

The Gut-Brain Connection

Inflammation is directly determined by your gut health. Considered your “second brain”, if the gut is unhealthy for any reason such as in Leaky Gut, constipation, gas, bloating or even from acid-reflux; it hinders the communication with the brain resulting in the inability to transport basic nutrients to the brain. Gut Be Calm™, can help you to begin healing your gut immediately.

If you’re interested in natural interventions for your cognitive decline, then don’t ignore your symptoms and seek treatment immediately. Simple changes to your diet and overall health with Naturopathic interventions can offer a radical improvement in your memory! 

Dr. Nirvana Lectures on Balancing Hormones to Release Weight

Dr. Nirvana Lectures on Balancing Hormones to Release Weight

When working with patients in my Practice, I hear a lot of similar comments. In particular:

  • I’m eating all the right foods, but I still can’t lose the weight.
  • There’s nothing I can do to lose weight, it’s genetic.
  • I’m just getting old and my metabolism has decreased.
  • These last 10 pounds just won’t go away—I want to give up.
  • There are certain foods I can’t stop eating even though I suspect they’re bad for me.
  • I crave sugar like crazy.
  • Diets that work for others don’t seem to work for me.
  • I lose five pounds, and then I regain seven.
  • I’m tired of and frustrated with weight loss.

Do those statements also resonate with you? If so, you might not know an important secret: the reason you struggle with your weight is that your hormones are out of balance.

As a licensed Naturopathic Doctor, I am uniquely qualified to understand the private suffering that women experience with weight gain and body shame. Although hormones are complex, when out of balance, they make losing weight close to impossible particularly for women. During my lecture, I’ll share which hormones are to blame, how they affect your weight, and at least one simple action you can take to bring each hormone back into balance.

Please join me on May 18th at 2pm, as I help you understand the ins and outs of your complex body, with natural solutions for weight loss.

Heal your Gut and Detox with this Alkaline Juice Shot

Detox Alkaline Juice Shot

A Simple Recipe to help Alkalize your Body and Heal your Gut

Cabbage is a great bowel cleanser. I use it often as part of my Naturopathic protocols in treating various gut issues and it’s always a happy recommendation for my detox programs. It holds two essential minerals – chlorine and sulfur, which are effective in treating GI problems such as bloating, GERD or acid reflux, and indigestion. It also contains a wealth of anti-inflammatory nutrients such as polyphenols and sulforaphane and vitamins K1 and B-vitamins.

Vitamin K1 is a fat-soluble vitamin most well known for the important role it plays in blood clotting and bone metabolism, but it’s also a known brain nutrient for helping to limit neuron damage in the brain. Most notably, cabbage contains tartaric acid which hinders conversion of sugar and carbohydrates into fat.

When my patients tell me that they are any sort of antacids such as Pepcid or Pepto Bismol, I immediately recommend cabbage juice instead. The reason is that the juice of a cabbage is one of the most healing nutrients for ulcer repair as it is a huge source of vitamin U (which is actually not a vitamin but an enzyme known as S methylmethionine). As a matter of fact, having a few teaspoons of cabbage juice before eating, or better yet, fermented cabbage juice from sauerkraut will do wonders to improve your digestion. So it not only help heal ulcers but also helps to benefit digestion.

The second ingredient in my Detox-Alkaline Juice Shot is honey. Honey is known to mobilize extra fat in the body which it puts into circulation to be converted into energy. Contrary to popular belief, honey is not pure fructose. It contains trace enzymes, minerals, vitamins, and amino acids allowing it to have antibacterial properties as well. One of the reasons you’ll find it in many cough remedies.

And finally, the third ingredient in my Detox-Alkaline Juice Shot is lemon. It’s the perfect way to hydrate and alkalize the body. It has a very high amount of vitamin C which helps to boost the immune system but also minerals such as calcium and magnesium which make the juice alkaline as soon as it comes in contact with your blood.

SLEEP FROM A HOLISTIC PERSPECTIVE

There are lots of benefits to getting a good night’s sleep: It boosts your mood, increases energy and helps keep your immune system strong so you stay healthy. Needles to say, it can be frustrating when you have trouble falling asleep or you wake up in the middle of the night and can’t get back to sleep. There are certain ways you can help ensure a better night’s sleep, such as avoiding caffeine later in the day, exercising regularly and doing what you can to decrease stress.

It’s not only how much sleep you get that matters, but also when you get it. A bedtime of 10:30pm (at the latest) is advised so that you are asleep by 11pm when the Liver and Gallbladder start to regulate qi (or your vital force), process emotions, balance hormones and detoxify the body.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, the window from 11 PM – 3 AM, which correlates to the Liver and Gallbladder, is most important in terms of maintaining health, especially as we age. We experience the deepest part of sleep during the first third of the night. This deep sleep, is the most restorative part of our sleep. During these hours the stress hormone cortisol is reduced and parasympathetic nervous system activity increases, which allows us to fully rest and move away from the fight or flight responses that dominate during waking hours. The quality of this type of sleep is associated with memory and learning. A lack of it can lead to reduced daytime functioning and alertness as well as waking up feeling unrefreshed. Further, human growth hormone, which is essential to repairing our bodies from daily injury and maintaining health, is released from 9pm-7am, making each hour of sleep during this time critical.

There is another aspect of hormones that comes into play when addressing sleep issues. By pinpointing trouble spots in your monthly cycle, where you might be more sensitive to certain changes, can help to shed light on why Mr. Sandman is making  his presence less known.
If you think your lack of sleep is due to racing thoughts, this could be to the increase in estrogen levels which boost brain energy. If you feel like your mind is on overdrive and caffeine isn’t to blame, you may have too much estrogen in your system. However if it’s your growling belly is keeping you awake, your elevated progesterone may be to blame. Progesterone also has the task of slowing down your digestion, leading to night time heartburn or even bloating throughout the latter part of your cycle. And lastly, during the week before your cycle begins, your body experiences a large drop in estrogen levels, which then reducing your serotonin levels. This prevents your body from drifting into sleep easier, while becoming more sensitive to light, noise and overall discomfort. This is the time that most refer to as “premenstrual symptoms or PMS”.
The above symptoms help you to know what could be causing problem sleep in your cycle. You likely won’t be experiencing all of these cycle-related sleep woes. But, for the ones you do, knowing why they occur and what to do about them can go a long way toward getting the kind of solid slumber you crave.
If you suffer from sleep issues, and you believe your hormones may be out of balance, a simple test can help. Contact the office to get you started on your healthy pathway to getting more Z’s.
