“Traditional” Mediterranean Diet Under Attack

This woman is kind of a big shot, so she can not just say what ever she wants. Here I have copied the best part; here is her Blog Post.

A Way Out

But there is a way out, Greece has three important advantages when it comes to nutrition:

1. A traditional diet that is the gold standard of diets. The traditional Greek diet is considered the purest form and the prototype of the Mediterranean diet. We do not need to reinvent the wheel, we have excellent published nutrition guidelines based on the diets of our parents and grandparents. We just need to make the diet relevant and accessible again.

2. Access to fresh food. Greece does not have food desserts. Every neighborhood/suburb poor or affluent, has a farmers market at least twice a week. This is key in raising awareness on how a traditional Greek diet is healthy and affordable.

3. Greek Filotimo and Filoxenia. Even in difficult times Greeks are helping those in need even though they are having their own financial difficulties. In Greek culture offering to another is considered an obligation, it is a reflection of who you are. According to a recent survey from the Dianeosis, an estimated 58% of Greeks have provided assistance to those in need through the form of food, clothing, money or volunteer work. That is quite high considering that Greeks are going through their own crisis.

I saw this image while reading about this research on Parkinson’s Disease and the gut.

If you think that this picture is amazing, think how amazing it is for us (chiropractors):-)

Walking: Good News Research

It sounds a little complicated, but the message is: walk more to improve brain blood flow.

Just another great reason to do more walking.

Today’s Everett Herald: Brain Tumor Was Caused By Cell Phone Use

“Court Links cellphone to a man’s brain tumor.”

That was the article title in today’s paper that most caught my eye.

In 2005 I began Blogging because I care about your health and about helping you to make the best heath care decisions that you possible can. That was over a thousand Blog Posts ago.

Here are the Blog Posts I put up on the subject of cell phones causing health issues. I think that if you use a cell phone, you should know that risks. As usual, there is a reason you don’t know much about it: someone would rather you not (it would affect their profits)!

So here, in the news now, we have a guy who works for a company, spending several hours a day on the phone (Does that sound like anyone you know?). He developed a brain tumor. In court – because he lost his hearing in one ear and was disabled – it was determined that the cell phone use caused the tumor.

This won’t be the last time we hear this story: it is just the first.

There its a way to reduce your risks, several actually. We have plenty of paperwork on that, here in the office, that we can share with you.

We also have the R2L, which you can get to reduce your risk. Like any other measure aimed at reducing risk factors (think bending and lifting properly), it is no guarantee that you won’t suffer. It reduces your risk.

A brain tumor probably won’t happen to you. If it does, you may not loose you hearing. But do you want to take the chance? (When it comes to promoting health, it is often about managing risk factors: we are all going to die sometime. When, and how, is something that we can have some control over if we make the right choices before it is too late.)

Get Healthy the Italian Way

This is from BottomLine: Personal, April 1, 2017

“In Italy, the passeggiata is a short, sociable walk taken after meals. A recent study found that taking a 15-minute walk after a meal improves blood sugar levels for 24 hours. That helps lower the risk for diabetes.”

Good to know!

How Slow Breathing Induces Tranquility

Filed under: Exercise, General Health & Wellness, Meditation, Tai Chi Chuan, Wellness care — Tags: , , — doctordilday @ 12:02 pm

This is from Neuroscience News…

Breathing is basic. Better breathing is healthy. Access to breath control through training is access to relaxation. (We could go on all day about that by itself, and on this Blog I have – if you search the terms you will find many Posts). And relaxation is key to stress management on many many levels. (Right now I am reading The Unthinkable, where the importance of breath control is highlighted as the primary means of controlling fear in an emergency situation.)

A Memo On Preventing Back Pain Injury

I sent the following out just now… If you know an employer interested in preventing back injuries, please share it.

 

Greetings,

(You are getting this because either you have already shown an interest in preventing work place back injury, or there is some reason for me to belief that you might be interested.)

Last month the Annuals of Internal Medicine published the newest guidelines for the management of acute, sub-acute, and chronic low back pain (from the American College of Physicians).

You may be interested to know that Tai Chi made the list of recommendations.

Tai Chi has been referred to as “the perfect exercise”, and when researchers at the Mayo Clinic studied it in 2011, Tai Chi became their number one recommendation for Employee Wellness Programs. Researchers at the Harvard Medical School were so impressed that they wrote The Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi in 2013.

I mention all of this because the epiphany that I had six years ago that I could help employers measure the risk of, and prevent, back injuries among their employees, was heavily informed by my, then, 15 years of Tai Chi practice. So far, while there has been expressed interest, my efforts to reach out have not resulted in meaningful conversations with those who have both the courage to advocate for a tested solution, and the authority to make a decision. (This is not about everyone doing Tai Chi: It is about measuring risk of back injury and then doing something about it that will measurably reduce that risk.)

My hope is that the growing impact of the problems of back pain injury (both direct costs and indirect costs) and the growing evidence of simple and efficient solutions will someday intersect with your priorities and the priorities of your employers. I would like to help, when/if that time comes.
