Sugar dangers are not always transparent - Dr. Wald sheds light on sugar dangers. 914-552-1442

Sugar is a killer no doubt about it. My fifty points below are only the tip of the iceberg, but if you are aware of them you must might not eat so much of that refined and processed sugar. Sugar in fruits is fructose and is good for you unless you have a problem with fructose specifically. Glucose and sucrose are found in junk foods and are bad for the body in many ways. Glucose is also the main sugar in grapes and is very good when you want clean and fast sugar relief during and or after workouts.

By Dr. Michael Wald

1.    Sugar can suppress the immune system - reduces the function of white blood cells called neutrophils.

2.    Sugar off -ets the mineral balance within the body - by causing mineral loss through the urine

3.    Sugar increases inflammation - and inflammation is at the crux of virtually any and all disease, dis-ease and illness.

4.    Sugar lowers cellular and humoral immunity - cellular immunity involves the white blood cells acting out their immune functions; humoral has to do with antibodies (immunoglobulins) that secrete many substances that direct sort of a chemical immunity. We need both of these immune systems and a third that helps to balance them out call the compliment immune system.

5.    Sugar can cause heart and vessel disease - by promoting inflammation, hardening of the arteries, promotes clotting and increases the bad cholesterol and lowers the good cholesterol.

A Real #Cancer Conversation - by #Dr. Michael Wald, #Blooddetective

Cancer and Nutrition - Does it work!

 There is no specific cancer diet. This diet is meant to support overall health and wellbeing and is not to be considered as a substitute for sound medical advice or specifically for the standard of care (treatments) for you or anyone with cancer.

 Cancer is a complex disease that involves genetics, diet, lifestyle, and environmental factors. It is believed that perhaps up to 60% of women’s cancers and 40% of men’s cancers are related to nutritional factors. The National Cancer Institute states that eating a healthy diet may prevent 33% of all cancer deaths. The World Cancer Research Fund and the American Institute for Cancer research has reviewed more than 4,500 studies on foods and cancer and came up with some dietary recommendations.

You are unique and your nutritional needs before, during and after cancer care are also unique. Your body weight, type of cancer, extent of cancer (tumor, metastasis, etc.), medications and other factors will determine how you should eat and what nutritional supplements you should consider consuming. Your nutritional needs for proteins, healthy fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals, phytonutrients and other nutraceuticals will change over time as your health situation changes including your laboratory tests. Tests such as a body composition analysis, blood pH, lactic acid, nitric oxide, vitamin C levels, vitamin C use tests, absorption tests, calcium, oxidative stress (MDA) and other analyses may be important for you to personalize nutritional needs.

Consume the following:

·      Legumes and beans such as soy (no more than 2 oz per day), tofu, black lentils, garbanzos, kidney beans, etc.

·      Meat that is lean such as skinless poultry (chicken and turkey) and wild game.

·      Garlic and onions as often as possible, preferably in the raw state. 

·      Fish 2-3 times per week - salmon, tuna, herring, pilchard, sardines, trout, and mackerel.

·      10 servings of tomato based foods and products per week.

·      Whole unprocessed grains such as brown rice, quinoa, buckwheat, oats, bulgar, and barley each and every day.

·      The most important dietary recommendation is to eat at least ten servings of a wide variety of fruits and vegetables every day. Fruits contain many powerful antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. One serving is ½ cup of fruit, ¾ cup

·      One serving of citrus fruit per day such as oranges, grapefruits, tangerines, and kumquats.

·      2 servings of other fruits such as red grapes, berries, peaches, apricots, apples, pears, plums, nectarines, etc.

·      Vegetables - When you eat vegetables, think of colors. Carotenoids give the vegetables their color and are powerful antioxidants. (1 serving=1/2 cup cooked or 1 cup raw or 1 cup leafy vegetables.

·      Every day you should consume 2-3 servings of leafy vegetables (spinach, romaine lettuce, kale, watercress, curly endive, mustard greens, beet greens, collard greens). One serving is one cup.

·      Every day you should consume 5-6 servings of yellow, orange, or red vegetables (carrots, cantaloupes, fed bell peppers, tomatoes). One serving is . cup of cooked or 1 cup of raw.

·      Every day you should consume at least one serving of cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cabbage, bok choy, radishes)

·      Every day you should consume 1 serving of other vegetables such as celery, turnips, beets, parsnips, fennel, garlic, onions, leeks, shallots, etc.

·      Drink tea daily.

Limit the following:

·      Coffee. No more than two cups per day. 

·      Alcohol. No more than 2 drinks per day for a male and 2-3 drinks per week for a female.

·      Reduce cholesterol intake to no more than 300mg per day and better at 200mg per day.

·      Maintain a low salt diet.

·      Reduce total fat intake to 20%-25% of total daily calories. Reduce saturated fats to 7%-8% of total daily calories.

Eliminate the following: 

·      Charred, broiled or grilled meats.

·      Food preservatives, food additives, artificial flavors, dyes.

·      Foods with nitrites and nitrates. Read labels carefully. These can be found in deli meats, hot dogs, sausage, etc.

·      Smoked, pickled and salt cured foods.

·      Partially hydrogenated oils and trans fats. These can be found in processed foods such as cookies, crackers, chips, cereals, etc 

·      Consumption of processed foods.

Helpful Hints:

·      Eat fewer calories per day. Do not overeat and avoid buffets.

·      Stress can weaken the immune system and lead to certain types of cancer. Practice relaxation techniques each and every day. These can include meditation, breathing exercises, tai chi, etc.

·      Participate in regular physical activity and exercise most days of the week.

·      Do not smoke or use chewing tobacco. If you currently do, seek professional help to stop.

·      Maintain normal body weight. Do not become overweight or obese.

Sleep & Death - How lack of sleep can end your life prematurely by The Blooddetective, Dr. Michael Wald

mwald

Lack of sleep is linked to increased risk of heart attack, cancer, poor healing, autoimmune diseases, mental disorders and overall reduced quality and length of life. Lean why you are not sleeping or why you sleep long hours but do not feel restored. Hormones like cortisol from the adrenal glands, thyroid hormone and insulin all play a role in poor sleep quality and sleeping pills do not correct underlying hormonal sleep problems. Pain, chronic inflammation, a high-glycemic index foods, stress, depression and anxiety are just some of the factors that can cause and or result from sleep disturbances. Join Dr. Michael Wald, The Blooddetective, as he explores practical steps that you can take to start sleeping again. The role of nutritional supplements such as GABA (gamma amino butyric acid), melatonin and tryptophane, among others, will be discussed.

#Environmental #Chemicals, Your #Immune System & Autoimmunitty

mwald

Every single day we are exposed to a large number of environmental chemicals, known as xenobiotics, that slowing chip away at our immunity - that may shorten our lives and ruin our quality of life.

As a result, our immune systems become dysfunctional increasing our susceptibility to a large number of autoimmune diseases. Strangle, it is not the mere exposure to your body that causes the xenobiotics to adversely affect your health and immunity - there are other factors that will determine ultimately how your health is impacted including genetics and the strength of the environmental toxic insult(s). Triggers are substances, compounds or agents that cause a reaction in your body, and in this case, we are talking about triggering a destructive and strong immune reaction. Various chemicals, microbes such as fungi, bacteria, viral, parasites and others trigger what is known as autoreactivity and ultimately autoimmunity. Exposure to triggers begins an inflammatory reaction through the body releasing self-antigens which causes more and more destruction to various body tissues. Join Dr. Michael Wald as he explores the ins and outs of how autoimmunity happens from exposure to various environmental triggers - and how medicine often does not appreciate environmental triggers as causative agents in virtually all autoimmune diseases. As the aging process is also an autoimmune disease, Dr. Wald will discuss how abnormal aging and high risk of disease is preventable if not at least delayable. Dr. Wald is in private practice in Katonah New York located in Westchester county - an hr north of New York City. Dr. Wald can be reached to schedule a new patient appointment either in person or by phone: 914-552-1442. Email Dr. Wald at: info@blooDDetective.com. His website is: intmedny.com.

Studies Show Little Benefit in Supplements (New York Times)

The New York Times just came out with two stories that strongly deny any benefit of the use of nutritional supplements. Dr. Wald will review every major point contained within these articles. According to Dr. Wald, "Well there you have it! I am not undeniably convinced that there is an actual conspiracy regarding the use of vitamins and the medical profession"! Furthermore, Dr. Wald explains, "I know this because it is a very simple thing for a health professional to search one of the two large data bases that contain all of the proof and research...proof that supplements do in fact help to prevent and treat countless disease processes. The naysayers count on the fact that most of the American public is ignorant of the science and facts that support the use of nutritional supplements and bank on their belief that the average person is simply not smart enough to know the difference between the truth and lies".  Join Dr. Michael Wald, The BloodDetective, as he takes on every major point regarding those that says supplements do not work and those that know they do.
