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.

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.

6.    Sugar can cause diabetes - but so can pollution, inflammation, genetics and other diseases.

7.    Sugar can cause fatigue - by weakening the adrenal glands, causing hypoglycemia, promoting inflammation.

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.

Chronic lower respiratory diseases account for 154,000 deaths per year in the United States. Mostly women are affected over the age of 65 and smoking exposure and exposure to secondhand smoke dramatically increase chronic lower respiratory diseases. People with asthma and those in a low income household likely have increased risk due to malnutrition. The different types of respiratory diseases are chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, emphysema, asthma and pulmonary hypertension. Avoidance of tobacco use and secondary smoke exposure I fundamentally important. Quitting smoking and limiting your exposure to other people secondhand smoke they would use your rest of lung diseases and death.

Blood sugar levels should be controlled and all individuals and especially those with Diabetes. Underline Cody vascular and heart defects also should be treated.

Alzheimer’s disease is a sixth most common cause of death In United States killing 116,000 people. It is mostly women who develop Alzheimer’s disease but people over age 65 or particularly susceptible as the risk for Alzheimer’s doubles every five years after age 65. People with a family history of Alzheimer’s disease should be especially on the lookout for early Alzheimer’s signs and should implement preventative nutritional and lifestyle habits. Alzheimer’s disease is caused by a combination of genetics, environmental and lifestyle impacts upon the individual over the lifetime.

Diabetes kills 80,000 people here in United States. There are two types of diabetes namely type one and type two. Type one is diagnosed in young children ages 4 to 7 that tend to live far away from the equator. It may be a genetic risk of type one diabetes and it cannot be avoided. Type two diabetes is more common among adults over age 45 who are overweight or obese and have a history of diabetes. Type one diabetes is associated with very low insulin production. Type to occurs when the body becomes insulin resistant and therefore the body cannot control blood sugar levels.

#Intermittent #Fasting - Truths & Lies - By #Dr. Michael Wald, #BlooDDetective


Join Dr. Michael Wald During this very needed discussion about intermittent fasting. Intermittent fasting means different things to different people. Some fast are known as 16:8 or 5:2. Large number of scientific studies have shown that, at least in animals, that intermittent fasting can reduce the risk of many diseases and even helps reverse certain aspects of nature killers.

We know that intermittent fasting has positive facts upon a variety of essential hormonal systems. During intermittent fasting insulin levels drop and fat burning increases. Human growth hormone levels increase as much is five times normal which helps to burn fat, and maintain and put on more lean body mass. Cellular repair is increased as well and cellular garbage is removed. Genetic expression, a process during which genes can either express disease or not, is positively affected by certain types of fats. We know that several genes are up-regulated that are related to longevity and disease protection perpetuated by fasting.

Intermittent fasting also seems to help weight loss. First, it involves consuming fewer calories. Additionally, and as long as you do not eat too much calories when you do eat during your fast, weight should be from fat and not lean body mass (which would be dangerous). Weight-loss is also promoted by and growth hormone function. Insulin levels drop, growth hormone levels rise as does noradrenalin levels - all important for promoting fat burning. Studies have shown that weight-loss metabolic rates can increase between 3% and 8% over as little as 3 to 24 weeks. Other studies of shown intermittent fasting causes much less loss of muscle compared to continuous calorie restriction which is very difficult.

Both insulin resistance and diabetes type two risk is reduced with intermittent fasting. We know that high blood sugar is the result of insulin resistance and fasting lowers insulin resistance and therefore protects against the development of type two diabetes. Human studies have shown that fasting sugars can be reduced between three and 6% and insulin levels can be reduced between 20 and 31%. Very importantly, intermittent fasting also reduces kidney damage which is a major complication of diabetes. It should be kept in mind however that Women showed worsening of blood sugar in one study after fasting 22 days. What this means is that the healthcare provider must adjust the fasting to prevent this adverse effect.

We also know that intermittent fasting may reduce oxidative stress and inflammation. Oxidation destroys cells and is involved intimately with chronic disease cause and affect. Accident molecules also known as free radicals can damage DNA and promote cancer. Several good study show that intermittent fasting made hands the body’s ability to resist oxidative stress and inflammation.

Heart health is the number one killer in United States according to the center of disease control. Wrist factors including high blood fats like cholesterol and triglycerides are not to be perpetuating the disease, but intermittent fasting has been shown to lower these biomarkers. Although not proven in human studies yet, animal studies seem to suggest the reduction in lipids and therefore a trend toward reduction of cardiovascular deaths.

Intermittent fasting really does show to detox the body by enhancing cellular waste removal. A process known as autophagy Helps protect the brain again several neurologic diseases including Alzheimer’s. But this process also protects us against cancer and has promoted by intermittent fasting.

Real studies have shown that intermittent fasting, At least in animals, increases the tumor cells sensitivity to chemotherapy. What this means is that if one chooses chemotherapy for the cancer treatment intermittent fasting may improve how chemotherapy works. Another words, improves the effectiveness of chemotherapy.

Intermittent fasting is great for your brain. We know that fasting increases the growth of nerve cells known as neurons and also increases a particularly important brain hormone known as brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF).

Alzheimer disease robs a person of their very identity and creates tremendous burden on family members who end up as caretakers. There is no magic bullet or a cure for Alzheimer’s disease but short term fast showed improvement in Alzheimer’s patients. Also, fasting helps protect one’s risk of developing to other horrible neurological disease is known as Parkinson’s disease and Huntington’s disease.

Can fasting help you live longer? Probably yes. Read studies have shown that intermittent fasting does extend lifespan. Continuous clock restriction of about 30% in rats increase their lifespan roughly 83%. You would have to reduce your daily caloric intake by 30% and this is nearly impossible as it would result in you becoming extremely thin and he would likely be hungry constantly. But, intermittent fasting, seems to get as much of the benefits without that difficulty.

As you can see, fasting of various types have the potential of both preventing disease, treating disease and mitigating the effects of disease. It is very important, according to Dr. Michael Wald, Supervisor at his private practice in Katonah New York, Westchester, to individualize the type of fasting.

#Blood sugar lies 25 things that #increase and #decrease blood sugar other than #eating sugar


Most people know that high blood sugar is dangerous. Diabetes increases risk of dying of heart attack and stroke. High blood sugar without the presence of diabetes is associated with chronic inflammation, increased risk of cancer, heart disease and poor aging. Low blood sugar, or hypoglycemia, can cause mental emotional disturbances, hormonal imbalances and memory problems just to name a few. Join Dr. Michael Wald, the Blood Detective, as he reviews over 25 non-sugar ways of increasing and decreasing your blood sugar. Dr. Wald asserts that most individuals focus disproportionately on the role that sugar in the diet may play towards either increasing or decreasing blood sugar when in fact there are far more ways that blood sugar levels are disturbed that have nothing to do with sugar. Learn how toxins, inflammation, chronic pain and disease and other body disturbances causes wild blood sugar fluctuations.

#Environmental #Chemicals, Your #Immune System & Autoimmunitty


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.

How we #die - and what to do about it, By #Dr. Michael Wald, The #BlooDDetective


Death maybe inevitable, but there is much that science has discovered that can delay our journey from cradle to the grave. Although there are many unknowns regarding why we age, suffer from disease and inevitable die, there is also much we have learned in the longevity and nutrition fields that provide insights into how we can live better for longer. Living better for longer is what is known as the non-disability stage of life. “Most people that come to me for natural longevity treatments are focused on living well not necessarily longer, but a good deal of my patients want both to live a long life that allows them to fully participate in life enjoying all that it has to offer. My focus in clinical nutrition practice is to provide natural therapies for people that focus on what we do know about the dying and aging process. If the right foods are consumed, the right nutritional supplements taken regularly along with proper sleep, fitness, happiness and alike it is reasonable that we can expect to reduce our risk of dying prematurely from preventable and delayable diseases like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, autoimmune diseases, cancers and other scavengers of our quality of life. We know that as we age our hormonal levels decline and/or they (the hormones) are not recognized by our various body tissues like our brain, and heart and immune system - resulting in atrophy (shrinkage) of our lean body mass and our very organs. The hormone decline theory is the idea that either low hormones or hormone resistance causes decay of virtually every cell, tissue, organ and organ system of our bodies. Another theory of aging, or of the dying process, is known as the Oxidative Theory (OT).

The OT theory is based on the fact that as the years pass our cells oxidize; oxidation is similar to an inflammatory-destructive process. As cells oxidize cellular functions like the production of cellular energy is dramatically reduced resulting in diminished organ function. Ultimately, when oxidation exceeds anti-oxidation efforts by the body aging takes over resulting in all of those characteristics that we typically characterize as aging including elevated cholesterol, hardening of the arteries, reduced oxygen exchange between red blood cells and our other body tissues, reduced mental function, reduced reaction time, reduced immunity, diminished muscle strength, coordination and more - but none of these “aging characteristics” are inevitable and every single one of them has the potential of being reversed. Death is inevitable, but how we age…how we approach death, is not at all predetermined. Genetics is not everything when it comes to how you age.

Genetics play a part when it comes to aging, but it is thought now that environmental factors play an even greater role in how we age then we ever thought possible. Genetic determinants of aging are affected for example by the foods we eat, the water we drink, our stress levels, sleep habits, nutritional supplements, environmental temperature and our caloric intake - these are known as lifestyle factors.. The influence that our individual lifestyle factors play upon how our genes affect our aging process is known as epi-genetic factors. Epi-genetics is a branch of genetics that describes how all that you do, each and every day, impacts how your aging-genes, and other genes, express during the course of your life. Express means how your genetic potential mixed with your lifestyle factors affect how you age. Will you suffer more disability from obesity, diabetes and arthritis, or will you lose your very identity from dementia? On a brighter note, we know that eating high nutritional value foods, eating overall low calories, intermittent fasting and lowering of body temperature are just a few of the ways in which you may influence how you age.

The telomere shortening theory involves a tail that is located on the end of certain chromosomes. This tail shrinks as you age. A large number of lifestyle factors have been shown to slow and even lengthen the telomere - this is associated with a longer life. Zinc, vitamin D3, resveratrol, vitamin A and dozens of other natural approaches have been scientifically proven to slow or length the telomere. Other exciting possibilities for aging better and offsetting your chances of an early demise might include hyperbaric therapy, infra-red sauna, specially designed detoxification programs, specific types of exercise programs and strong mental health.

Death is inevitable, but the choices that you make each and every day can make a measurable difference in both the length and quality of your life. Here are a few concepts and pointers that have been shown in research to potentially increase the quality of your life and length of your life:

  • Biological age is how old you are in terms of your physiology. Chronological age is how old you are in years. If you have arthritis in your shoulder you can think of this as accelerated aging of your shoulder - in other words, your shoulder is biologically older than your age. Gently stretching everyday will help insure flexibility, strength, coordination and range of motion - all of these physical characteristics tend to worsen with age.

  • Eat at least 5 pieces of fruits and vegetables every single day, but if you can’t, than consume a superfood powdered drink that provides the equivalent, or greater, nutritional value of at least these many plant foods.

  • Think vegan and vegetarian! These two types of diets have far greater plant foods and are associated with better weight control, better lean body mass, less disease overall including diabetes, autoimmune diseases like Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, Scleroderma, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Grave’s disease, various cancers and more.

  • Exercise every day in the form of aerobic exercise for at least 30 minutes but 45 min or even an hour is best. Your heart rate must be elevated to at least 70% of your heart rate max for 80% of your exercise time with 5 minutes warm up and 5 minutes warm down. You might benefit from different exercise instructions based upon your doctors recommendations. You should also lift weights to retain your muscle mass. Muscle mass is lost as we age, but is offset greatly by regular muscular exercises.

  • Eat fewer calories. Eating fewer calories seems to double the lifespan of mice in scientific studies. I know that you are not a mouse, but scientists feel that we are similar enough. What your caloric intake should be to slow the aging process is up to you and your health professional.

I hope that you have found this information of use.

Live long and prosper! - Dr. Michael Wald

#Nutritional #Supplement #Secrets - don't FU#!K it up! #Dr. Michael Wald, #BlooDDetective


Do you take nutritional supplements? Why do you take them? If the answer is to improve and or maintain your health then how do you know that you are taking them right? Don't waste your money, your time or your intelligence taking nutritional supplements the wrong way! Dr. Michael Wald, The BloodDetective, will teach you how to get the most out of your nutritional supplements. Dr. Wald says, "too many smart people are doing dumb things with their nutritional supplement efforts. They often take the right stuff, but take it the wong way missing all or part of the benefits of their potential health improvements." Did you know that the timing of supplements can make all the difference in terms of best or worst effects in your body? Also, combining supplements the right way can improve how they are absorbed in your body, how they are activated ("turned-on") and ultimately their health effects. Taking supplements the wrong way can cause significant damage to your health. Too much of a supplement can be toxic, too little can be ineffective, but the right synergistic combinations can help create health where their was poor health. What about combining supplements with foods? Some foods fully or partially block the benefits of various nutritional supplements. Other foods increase the digestion and ultimately the blood and cellular tissue levels. Herbs, nutraceuticals, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and amino acids are just some of the nutritional products that can help us maintain and beat disease...but only if they are taken seriously. "Finally", says Dr. Wald, "if you take a big box or bag of nutritional supplements and you have never seriously considered the concepts above, or, if you have never had the correct types of laboratory tests that can help you know about your absorption, utilization as well as other health parameters you have been missing out! Stop being ordinary with your health efforts and go the next level and be your own BlooDDetective!

#Emotional #Eating...End it now! By #Dr. Michael Wald, The #BlooDDetective


Emotional Eating, or stress eating can ruin quality of emotional and physical health. Do you emotionally eat? How do you know when you are emotionally or stress eating? And if you know that you emotionally eat - what should you do about it? Do you take medication? Do you take vitamin supplements, do you see a mental health specialist?  Join Dr. Michael Wald, Host of Ask the BlooDDetective, as he provides practical steps for the identification and eradication of emotional eating so that you can be happier and healthier. Dr. Wald can be reached for either in-person or distance consultations by calling 914-552-1442. His website is: and his email is: 
Here's more: 

Emotional eating, otherwise known as stress eating, is an all too common problem affecting both men and women of virtually all ages. What is even more sad about this problem is that it is in adequately recognized, and therefore treated, and psychiatric and nutritional circles. My intention during this short article is to outline the major considerations for emotional eating and what you can do to modify emotional eating if you are affected by it. Furthermore, by recognizing emotional eating in yourself you will start to recognize it and others.

Perhaps the first concepts regarding effective management of emotional eating is to address its root cause or causes. Emotional and physical stressors and depression are a few examples of the underlying causes which may manifest in one’s life as emotional eating. If one attempts to manage emotional eating without first identifying its causes than any attempts to manage it nutritionally and or through other modalities such as acupuncture, fancy dietary changes and I like I doomed to fail. 

Once you have identified and begin to properly manage the root causes of emotional eating you are well on your way towards building a solid foundation for a healthy or emotional and physical life. Once you learn, to work with a therapist and a psychiatrist or health coach proper strategies for managing underlying causes of stress eating it is a sensual to practice the coping skills that you have learned throughout your life - and especially during the most stressful times of your life. This last point is not want to be taken lightly meaning that if you can effectively manage your emotional stressors that are at the root cause of your emotional eating you will build even stronger coping strategies. To put it simply, effectively coping with stress eating during the most stressful times of your life will make it easy for you to manage stress eating during the less stressful times of your life.

When you find yourself staring at those foods that you probably should not have ask yourself, “am I really hungry“. If you are not hungry simply walk away. This is what I call awareness development for emotional or stress eating. If an individual, such as yourself, is on automatic and emotionally eating without the recognition of the fact that emotional eating is occurring in that moment then there is no chance that you can break the pattern. So develop you are, “awareness development“ by asking yourself at all points when you eat, “and I really hungry“ and if not walk away.

For a practical perspective, it is important for you to eliminate all of the worst foods and snacks in your house. Sugary foods, refined and processed carbohydrates, salty and fatty foods for example promote adverse brain chemistry and function. To say it another way, eating poorly causes poor chemistry and poor brain health. Some foods, such as sugar, can actually increase the production of stress hormones in your body which can promote not only emotional eating but can lessen your overall ability to deal with stress. Unhealthy foods, such as those I have mentioned above, have been shown to promote inflammation in the brain. Inflammation in the brain is now believed to be an underlying factor that causes or promotes all manner of emotional and psychiatric problems ranging from schizophrenia, depression, anxiety and even bipolar.

Changing your nutritional chemistry involves that you have in your home, in place of unhealthy foods, foods that are lower down on the food chain. For example, plant foods such as fruit and grains and vegetables are generally far healthier than most other foods in the diet. This does not mean that you cannot eat higher up on the food chain which would consist of animal products but you might want to limit their consumption particularly if you find yourself emotionally eating. On the other hand, it is important not to indulge in fad diet‘s that may be overkill for your purposes of dealing with emotional eating. For example, illuminating gluten if you do not have a gluten problem is not wise as it removes needed protein from the diet which is required as a precursor for amino acid production and therefore neurotransmitter production in the brain and has removed a major food from the diet which may result in feelings of frustration in terms of food choices.

There is some evidence that the consumption of green tea,and white tea may help offset the low serotonin and/or dopamine levels that are sometimes associated with emotional eating. These teas contain varying amounts of an important “happy” amino acid known as L-theanene.  One should not expect that the consumption of cream cheese will cure their emotional eating but often a combination of small things like replacing unhealthy foods in your diet with healthier ones, getting good sleep, the consumption of these teas, and the appropriate psychological care often goes along way towards managing stress eating. Finally, keeping a food/emotional journal is essential for identifying when you are emotional eating so that you can "ride out the storm" breaking emotional-neurological habits and start to break the pattern of harmful emotional eating behaviors.
