What You Think is What You Create!

 

Wellness begins with a thought.  Wellness begins with a goal.  Wellness is something you must think to create.  For each individual, wellness means something different.  For some, wellness is a current lifestyle that is to be maintained.  For many, wellness is something that is coveted because wellness has been lost.

At Seasons Wellness, we offer individualized therapy to aggressively eliminate the obstacles to wellness and to maximize your body’s performance to achieve optimal wellness potential. We work with you to achieve health and wellness through the 7 points of Wellness: Epigenetics, NutritionExerciseHormonesInflammation, Detoxification, and Gut microbiome.

Epigenetics and Nutrition

Photo by Elli O. on Unsplash

Imagine before you is a large salad, well-seasoned, loaded with bright and colorful vegetables, topped with lightly grilled salmon, and a large glass of water. Beside that dish is another, a heavily processed cheeseburger from any popular fast-food joint, with an extra-large side of fries, and a tall chocolate milkshake. Now, ask yourself, which of these meals do you eat more often? What if someone told you that the choice you made today, between those two meals, would impact not only your current and future health but that of your children and even your grandchildren? Epigenetics, as we previously discussed, is the expression of your DNA. If you were a computer, your DNA would be the hardware, and epigenetics would be the software. So, while other factors (stress, lack of sleep, environmental exposures) also have the ability to impact your genetic expression, nutrition is the one we have the most control over.

Your DNA is not your Destiny

 

Your DNA Is No Longer Your Destiny

 

Is your destiny written in your DNA? For years, scientists believed that a person’s DNA – the complex genetic code that carries all the information needed for your growth and development – was a fixed and unchanging set of “instructions” that directed the body’s processes from birth to death. But new insights from the emerging field of epigenetics suggest that these genetic instructions can be modified by external factors, with profound implications for health, wellness, disease and the aging process.

Wellness Knows no Age Limits

 

It’s never too late to turn your health around. Just ask DW, who completely transformed his health and his life at the age of 69 with a set of diet, exercise and lifestyle changes that increased muscle mass, reduced fat and boosted his metabolic rate by more than 200 points. Here’s how he did it — and proved that wellness knows no age limits.

Annual road to weight-loss nowhere.  What is a ketogenic diet?

 

Merry Christmas.  Happy Hannukkah.  Happy New Year.  Tis the season to celebrate.  Tis the season to give.  Tis the season to receive.  Unfortunately, when it comes to the waist line, the season tends to gives back more than it receives.

 

The average American will gain up to 7 pounds over the extended Holiday season.  As a result of the Holiday bulge, many will engage in the annual pilgrimage.   Each New Year, Americans pay homage to tradition and bring a resolution of a new diet to start the new pilgrimage to trim the waistline.  Each year, Americans start down the road to weight-loss nowhere.

 

I would love to say that there is one diet that will fix all waistlines, but there is no perfect diet to fit all metabolic needs.  The key in weight loss is to differentiate fad from science to promote healthy, long-term fat loss and muscle growth.  Many weight loss fads promote water loss, muscle loss and short term weight loss only.  These types of weight loss programs actually set the body up for long term weight loss failure.   I want to take this opportunity to review a well recognized, well researched, but often misunderstood dietary strategy: the ketogenic diet–the diet with benefits beyond weight-loss.

Tis the Season for Lighting up Your Nucleus Accumbens

 

It is estimated that Americans consume 22 teaspoons of sugar a day.  Studies have shown that sugary, processed foods trigger a special region in the brain called the nucleus accumbens.  This is the pleasure center which when activated can lead to addictions.   In other words, once this pathway is stimulated, the intoxication from the sugar high, makes you feel as if you can never get enough.

 

Take for example, a 20 ounce bottle of soda with 65 grams of sugar.  Your gut quickly absorbs the liquid sugar which causes a domino effect of high blood sugar leading to high insulin levels.  Insulin increases storage of belly fat and inflammation.  Insulin blocks your appetite –control hormone, leptin.  Now the brain never gets the message that you are full.  Instead it thinks you are starving.  This lights up your nucleus accumbens driving you to crave more sugar and processed foods.

Small steps to begin a Healthy 2016

 

As I moved through the holiday season with family and friends, I heard all the chatter of losing weight in the New Year. With a cookie or a dipped chip in hand we talked of our plans for shedding these indulgent pounds that we had gained over the last months, or maybe years. There are hundreds of dietary theories of how to combat the holiday bulge that becomes the yearly bulge. How do you decide which bulge battling theory is right for you? Here are 5 small steps that are great for EVERYONE seeking a new year of healthy lifestyle change:

Man Boobs to Metabolic Syndrome–Muscle loss

 

Testosterone and Muscle loss in men.

 

Ninety-eight percent failure rate!  Who would initiate something that had a 98% failure rate; let alone, repeat the failure over and over again?  It sounds sadistic.  It is the definition of insanity. But, that is exactly what Americans do with weight loss.  With such a low success rate in the weight loss industry, one might conclude that there is little $$ value in the weight loss industry.  That assumption would be wrong.  According to the 2014 status of US market on the weight loss industry, the value of the weight loss industry was valued at $60.8 billion.   That is $60.8 billion for a success rate of 2%.  That makes the government look like a well-oiled, efficient machine—not!

 

Why do 98% of weight loss programs fail?

Keep on Track with your Health–Simple Nutrition

 

Keeping On Track With Your Health- It Really Can Be Simple.      

 

January, February, March have passed by and we are now moving into April.  So, how is your health?  How are your new year resolutions to improve your Health going?

 

By this time each year, many have fizzled in their efforts to improve their Health (whether it is to eat healthy, exercise, lose weight or just stay fit).  Healthy nutrition seems to be extremely difficult with convenient (food that is quick and lacks nutritional value) and tempting foods so easily accessible.  Living in Knoxville, with so many eateries, it seems so easy to pick up fast food, or eat at a quick line restaurant or even a sit down restaurants.

 

At what cost?

Living Healthy is easy! Grow Microgreens

Living Healthy is easy!

 

 

Living Healthy is easy–I promise.  Living Healthy just requires rethinking and a little planning.  We have been raised in and taught to live in a Disease world for so long that we have forgotten how to live Healthy.  Disease living has become the new normal.  It is as if we are simply a commodity to feed an industry based on Disease.  Healthy living is not difficult, it just requires a change of habits—a new way of thinking—a first step.

 

 

Lifestyle transitions require small steps.  Today is the first small step—growing Microgreens at home.
