Integrated health

Our body is in the business of keeping us healthy and vital and that requires cooperation

I belong to B2B, a networking group of the Crystal Lake Chamber, and the thought just occured to me that our health is similiar to cooperative businesses in a network group.  To have an effective group, each person needs to have a good relationship with other members.  Similiarly, in your body, each system needs to work cooperatively to be effective in the business of keeping us healthy.  For our nervous system to run effectively, the computer/brain must be able to interpert the messages sent to it from various part of our body.  This is influenced by the food we eat, our emotions, our joint flexibility, our subluxation patterns.  My website (drjeffmoore.com) can give you  more information on this topic and other tips on keeping and maintaining your ability to live the life you want.

Extra Virgin Olive oil is also a "good" fat to use when preparing meals. Mike, it's a good replacement for the butter that you love so much because it helps satiate our hunger withOUT adding more "bad" fat to our bodies. I use it as dressing on salad. I use it to make eggs and sautee veggies in a skillet etc. There are certain types of Olive oil that are best used heated and others that use some food value when heated. Dr. Jeff do you know which are which?

It's tough to get enough protein if you eat no meat. But the higher-class protein powders i(most palatable in a fruit smoothie) go a long way. I recommend Vitamin Shoppe brand egg protein. And I guarantee a full scoop of that stuff will make you un-hungry for 3, maybe 4 hours

I love nuts, too, Jeff, and used to overdo them big time. But their downside is high concentrations of omega 6 EFA (essential fatty acids), and it's important to keep the ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 much higher than the 1:16 or so most American diets experirence. BTB, for you fellow old folks out there, lots of omega 3 over omega 6 reduces arthritic pain significantly. I've done some personal testing there.

I can look it up concerning the olive oil. As far as the nuts are concerned, you are very right Ken. I think that is why nature put nuts in shell. So that we can expend energy earning our food and giving our brains a chance to let us know when we have consumed enough. Just like juicing too many carrots, eating a handful of nuts over and over, is excessive and to much for our bodies to process efficiently. One another note, an excess of carbs raises blood sugar and that leads to increased insulin release and eventually to excessive coffee consumption due to the sudden decrease of glucose in the blood which causes the need for more coffee to 'perk' us up and this leads to more glucose and insulin release and you eat more carbs that your body stores as extra weight.

I can point you to a doctors article that talks about the effect of sugar and the increases of it in our diets in just the past few years. Leave a comment or email me at drjeff@drjeffmoore.com
