What is the biggest health danger for 2018?
Obesity tops the list of the most dangerous things for our health in the New Year.  

Happy New Year! We hope your holidays were filled with joy, happiness, and the “presence” of family and friends. Tomorrow starts the New Year and it is filled with promise, the not-yet-discovered and infinite possibilities. There is so much to look forward to and every day is to be enjoyed. So let’s make a commitment or “resolution” to be our healthiest selves so we can really enjoy this New Year as healthy whole people.  

The biggest health concern looming over us this New Year is something that while within our own control is one of the hardest things to get a handle on…and that is obesity. The Director of the USA’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has declared obesity to be “…the nation’s number one health problem…” Statistics show that 65% of US adults are overweight or obese, and in Louisiana, Mississippi, and West Virginia, 25% of adults are obese. People living in our country are dying from diseases like cancer, heart disease, and diabetes that are caused by obesity and other bad lifestyle choices such as smoking, drinking and too little exercise. Our nation’s leading causes of death are the result of unhealthy lifestyle choices and obesity.1*

One of the major reasons for weight gain is changes in your microbiome. When our gut is overpopulated with unfriendly bacteria, it can result in many negative health issues, among these being obese. Other health problems can also result from an unhealthy gut such as allergies, autoimmune disorders such as eczema and rheumatoid arthritis, mental health disorders to include depression, as well as cancer, heart disease and more as we mentioned earlier. Every day, researchers are discovering more and more connections between chronic illness and an unhealthy microbiome. 2*

Remember, we have trillions of bacteria that include 500 species which make up our microbiome. The gut is essential for digesting food, extracting nutrients, regulating hormones, eliminating toxins, and producing healing compounds. When our guts are healthy, we experience optimal digestion, absorption, and assimilation of nutrients. Our guts contain a diverse mix of bacteria and the bacteria must have a healthy balance in order for us to stay healthy.2*

If we have too many unfriendly bacteria, (such as Candida albicans and parasites for example) and not enough of the good bacteria, it can lead to serious damage to your overall health as we crave the bad foods that feed the bad bacteria.2*

So, remember to do the following to ensure you are growing a healthy microbiome.

  • Stick to whole foods. Cut out processed, refined, high sugar foods and carbs. Increase your intake of fiber that good bacteria love.*
  • Cut your plate into an imaginary pie with five slices. Make 4 of those fruits and vegetables.*
  • Eat the good fats…eliminate the bad. Good fats like Omega 3 fats and monounsaturated fats, (such as extra-virgin olive oil) help with decreasing inflammation and giving healthy gut bugs a chance to flourish. “…Obesity has been linked to changes in our gut ecosystem, resulting from an intake of inflammatory Omega 6s and not enough anti-inflammatory Omega 3s. Bad bugs produce toxins called lipopolysacchardies (LPS)  that trigger inflammation, insulin resistance or pre-diabetes and therefore, promote weight gain…”2*
  • Supplement with Body Biotics™ Bio-identical SBO Probiotics Consortia™ to replenish the friendly bacteria that has been lost through antibiotic use and diet.*
  • Remove inflammatory fats from your diet.  Some studies demonstrate that high-fat diets can adversely affect your gut flora and promote inflammation and weight gain, so choose wisely.2*
  • Add fiber-rich foods such as nuts and seeds to your diet.*
  • Add fermented foods such as sauerkraut, miso, kimchi and tempeh which contain good amounts of probiotics to your diet so your healthy gut bugs can be fruitful and multiply.*
  • Watch your calorie intake. Exercise. It is about calories in and calories out.*

 

Let’s stay healthy together this new year! Here are wishes for a happy 2018 for each and every one of you!
