ALL FRUIT DIET

Surprising Health Hazards Associated with All-Fruit Diet
http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/02/11/all-fruit-diet.aspx?e_cid=20130217_SNL_MV_1&utm_source=snl&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20130217
~ Dr Mercola … Surprising Health Hazards Associated with All-Fruit Diet … February 11, 2013
~ Story at-a-glance
~
~ Ashton Kutcher recently disclosed he suffered pancreatic problems brought on by following an all-fruit diet adopted in preparation to play the character of Steve Jobs in the upcoming film “Jobs.” Steve Jobs died of pancreatic cancer in 2011
~ Fruits are loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, which is why eating a small amount of them is fine for healthy people. However, many benefit by restricting their fruit intake due to its high fructose content
~ Research suggests fructose may have a particularly significant impact on pancreatic cancer, as pancreatic cancer cells have been shown to use fructose for cell division, speeding up the growth and spread of the cancer
~ As a general guideline, I recommend limiting your total fructose consumption to 25 grams of fructose per day. If you suffer with any fructose-related health issues, such as insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, heart disease, obesity or cancer, you would be wise to limit your total fructose consumption to 15 grams of fructose per day. This includes fructose from ALL sources, including whole fruit…

METABOLIC SYNDROME
(Syndrome X)

~
PCOS Lady:
Women carry the extra weight in their chin, tummy and abdomen… A tall tail sign…
~
The weight in the tummies i refer to IR weight, lol… No matter what i try aside from starvation that weight will not disappear without my “miracle” pill Glucophage XR 500 mg daily for a few months!
~
http://www.drscottrigden.com/?act=obesity&sub=metabolic
By Dr. Scott Rigden, MD
~
Metabolic Syndrome (Syndrome X)
~
What is it?
~
Metabolic Syndrome, a.k.a. Syndrome X, occurs in 24% of U.S. adults, or approximately 60-75 million Americans. It is usually associated with obesity. It is a condition that features the combination of insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia (excessive or too much insulin), which has profound health implications. It is commonly associated with coronary heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes mellitus type 2. These individuals often have lipid profiles in which they have elevated triglycerides with low HDL levels (their triglyceride/HDL ratios are usually over 4.) Their fasting insulin levels are above 8.
~
DO I HAVE METABOLIC SYNDROME?
~
Here are ten clues:
* I cannot lose weight.
* I tend to gain weight in the “apple” distribution.
* I crave sugar and carbohydrates.
* My energy levels are erratic.
* I have a family history of diabetes.
* I had a large baby (over nine pounds) and/or had gestational diabetes.
* I have a history of polycystic ovaries.
* I have non-European ancestry.
* I have a tendency to hypertension and/or borderline blood sugars.
* I have skin tags around my neck and upper body.
~
The five clinical criteria doctors use to diagnose metabolic syndrome are listed below. If you have three of them, see your health provider for an in depth work-up.
~
FIVE CLINICAL CRITERIA OF METABOLIC SYNDROME
~
* Elevated waist circumference (greater than 40 inches in males and 35 inches in females)
* Triglyceride levels above 150 mg/dl
* Decreased HDL (less than 40 mg/dl for men and below 50 mg/dl for females)
* Blood pressure above 130/85
* Fasting glucose above 110 mg/dl

How Can the Wealthiest Industrialized Nation be the Sickest?
~
September 15 2012
~
By Dr. Mercola
~
The human race is the unwitting participant in a massive science experiment, as presented in this masterful new documentary by Jeffrey Smith. Smith is one of the world’s leading authorities on the health dangers of genetically engineered (GE) foods.
~
The film expands on his second book, Genetic Roulette: The Documented Health Risks of Genetically Engineered Foods.
~
As a consumer advocate against GE foods, Smith’s authority is unrivaled. His meticulous research has documented how biotech companies continue to mislead legislators and safety officials.
~
The health of the environment in peril. Smith has made this information widely available via his Institute for Responsible Technology website, one of the most comprehensive sources of GE health information on the Internet.
~
Story at-a-glance
The health dangers of genetically engineered (GE) foods are masterfully presented in this documentary by Jeffrey Smith, one of the world’s leading authorities on GE foods
~
Americans get sick more often than Europeans or people from any other industrialized nation, and scientific evidence suggests a significant factor may be the genetic engineering of our food supply
~
Despite claims by government regulators and the food industry that GE foods are safe, scientific studies continue to show the opposite; GE foods have been linked with allergies, reproductive problems and infertility, birth defects, bizarre mutations, cancer, and now an unidentified mystery organism causing an epidemic of livestock deaths, “Sudden Death Syndrome”
~
GE foods trigger immune attack because they appear to your body as foreign invaders rather than food; this immune response can lead to chronic inflammation, which in turn raises your risk for multiple additional health problems
~
The two main types of GE foods are herbicide-tolerant crops and pesticide-producing crops; both are imprecise processes that are riddled with unexpected consequences, such as hundreds to thousands of genetic mutations that have unknown effects on human health
~
How Can the Wealthiest Industrialized Nation be the Sickest?
~
Americans get sick more often than Europeans or people from any other industrialized nation. Since the mid-1990s, the number of Americans suffering from at least three chronic illnesses nearly doubled. Life expectancy has decreased and infant mortality has increased. Illnesses once rare are now common, with some approaching epidemic levels. For example:
~
Autism now affects one in 88 children (CDC1), compared to one in 25,000 in the mid-1970s
~
Type 2 diabetes rates in the U.S. increased by 176 percent between 1980 and 2010
~
Celiac disease is four times more common now than 60 years ago
~
Alzheimer’s disease is rising at alarming rates. It’s estimated that 5.4 million Americans (one in eight older Americans) now has Alzheimer’s disease, and nearly half of those age 85 and older have it; AD rates have doubled since 1980
~
~ New infectious diseases are increasing in number, according to a 2008 study
~
~ In his documentary, Jeffrey Smith makes a convincing argument that one of the primary forces driving these illnesses is America’s changing food supply. And one of the most profound changes is genetically engineered food. Proving GE food is causing Americans to be sick is a tall order, but the evidence presented in this film is very compelling and should not be ignored.

PCOS to Colon Cancer?

Posted in CANCER, PCOS tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 12:29 am by PCOSLady

PCOS to COLON CANCER
~
PCOS Lady:
Colon cancer can be highly silent in ever showing up with symptoms til its to late!!!! ~ Symptoms show through the years and we may ignore them… Here is your ALERT! ~ 50 years old we need tested for a base chart… IF you have colon cancer symptoms get tested then, regardless of age… Colon cancer can be cured if caught early…
~
I know its a “taboo’d” area… Maybe go with a girlfriend or beau and make a day of it with lunch or dinner or ?
Cysters we have all experienced our PCOS journeys for years… Our futures may unfold to include added conditions evolving from PCOS…
~
Some of us are following this path…
~
First: IR – Insulin Resistance
Then: PCOS
Then: Metabolic Syndrome
Then: ??? liver, breast, colon cancer
~
http://pcos.insulitelabs.com/PCOS-and-Metabolic-Syndrome-X.php

~
PCOS and Metabolic Syndrome (Syndrome X)
Women with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) have a greater chance of developing Metabolic Syndrome (Syndrome X) – a cluster of increased risk factors for cardiovascular disease which raise the likelihood of a heart attack or stroke. Metabolic Syndrome also increases the chance of developing Pre-Diabetes, a reversible condition, which if neglected, may become Type 2 Diabetes. This latter condition can only be managed in the majority of cases and may require daily injections of insulin.
~
According to the American Heart Association, between 20-25% of the adult population of the United States suffer from Metabolic Syndrome. That’s somewhere between 58 and 73 million men and women.
~
The bad news doesn’t end there, either. PCOS sufferers with Metabolic Syndrome are also at greater risk of developing Gestational Diabetes, which can develop during pregnancy, as well as having higher rates of liver, breast and colon cancer.
~
Only in recent years has Metabolic Syndrome undergone extensive scientific investigation. The medical community has made a dramatic change in the way it views and treats this condition after a growing body of evidence pointed to Insulin Resistance as an underlying cause of Metabolic Syndrome.
~
Signs and symptoms of colon cancer include:
~
~ A change in your bowel habits, including diarrhea or constipation or a change in the consistency of your stool
~ Rectal bleeding or blood in your stool
~ Persistent abdominal discomfort, such as cramps, gas or pain
~ A feeling that your bowel doesn’t empty completely
~ Weakness or fatigue
~ Unexplained weight loss
~
Many people with colon cancer experience no symptoms in the early stages of the disease. When symptoms appear, they’ll likely vary, depending on the cancer’s size and location in your large intestine.
~
When to see a doctor
If you notice any symptoms of colon cancer, such as blood in your stool or a persistent change in bowel habits, make an appointment with your doctor.

Dr Flechas’ Research

Posted in DR FLECHAS tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 4:36 am by PCOSLady

Dr Flechas’ Research Findings
~
PCOS Lady:
After reading his findings you will truly understand much more about your conditions… You will know the path to try and why…
~
Dr. Flechas’ research linking Iodine deficiency to PCOS, IR, and Hypothyroidism
~
http://www.cancercontrolsociety.com/bio2005/flechas.html
JORGE FLECHAS, M.D., M.P.H.
~

DR JORGE FLECHAS


~
JORGE FLECHAS, M.D., M.P.H. born in Puerto Rico, received his Medical Doctorate Degree and Masters in Public Health at Loma Linda University in Loma Linda, California. He completed his Family Practice Residency at Florida Hospital in Orlando, Florida.
~
Dr. Flechas over the years has published articles in the fields of fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and immune dysfunction syndrome. Lately, he has been involved in research in the field of iodine deficiency, which has been associated with fibrocystic breast disease, ovarian cysts, breast cancer, thyroid goiter and hypothyroidism. Recent work in the field of iodine deficiency has shown that replacement therapy decreases the risk of breast cancer and promotes the reversal of fibrocystic breast disease.
~
It has been thought that iodine deficiency only manifests as hypothyroidism. Work done by many researchers over the last few years has shown that iodine is utilized by many different sections of the body. Twenty percent of all of the iodine sits in the human skin. A lack of iodine in the skin manifests as very dry skin and skin that does not sweat when an individual becomes hot. In newborn children iodine is responsible for the development of the babies’ I.Q. Recent research shows iodine deficiency is felt to be the source of attention deficit disorder in children.
~
Iodine is utilized by every hormone receptor in the body. The absence of iodine causes a hormonal dysfunction that can be seen with practically every hormone inside the body. Dr. Flechas has recently been able to show that patients with insulin resistant diabetes have a partial to full remission of their illness in the presence of taking iodine. Iodine deficiency is also felt to be the source of ovarian cysts. With iodine replacement therapy the cysts disappear and women have stopped having ovarian cysts.
~
Dr. Flechas with the help of Dr. Guy Abraham, GYN/Endocrinologist from Torrance, California has been able to develop an iodine testing laboratory. Dr. Flechas is now the Director of that laboratory. Iodine deficiency can now be measured using the Iodine Loading Test. Kits for doing this testing can be ordered from 1-877-900-5556. The test is available through FFP Laboratories. Dr. Flechas can be reached at his Flechas Family Practice in Henderson, North Carolina by phone 828-684-3233, fax 828-684-3253. and website www.helpmythyroid.com. Articles concerning iodine deficiency have been published and are available via his website.

ACNE: Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS)

Posted in ACNE (mild to severe) tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 6:27 pm by PCOSLady

HS ACNE VARIATION....


~
ACNE (severe)
Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS)
~
PCOS Lady
HS effects both men and women it seems… I have experienced minor bouts of this through my life… Luckily they went away… Acne, we all experience it, PCOS women usually have it start on the face, then it moves to our shoulders, etc… We get the few on our breasts and groin areas… Some women try treating acne for years with little success… You may have HS… I suggest keeping this info on hand for your doctor…
~ This can be caused by “bad” parasites as well. Best to look at the symptoms under PARASITES…
~ The Cure Zone covered HS exceptionally well!
~
What is hidradenitis suppurativa?
~
Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS), also known as ‘Acne Inversa’, is a physically, psychologically, and socially disabling disease affecting inverse areas of the body (those places where there is skin-to-skin contact – armpits, groin, breasts, etc.), and where apocrine glands and hair follicles are found. It is non-contagious and recurrent; typically manifesting as a progression from single boil-like, pus-filled abscesses, or hard sebaceous lumps, to painful, deep-seated, often inflamed clusters of lesions with chronic seepage (suppuration — hence the name) involving significant scarring.
~
Abscesses may be as large as baseballs in some people, are extremely painful to the touch and may persist for years with occasional to frequent periods of inflammation, culminating in drainage, often leaving open wounds that will not heal. These “flare-ups” are often triggered by stress, hormonal changes, or humid heat. Drainage of the lumps provides some relief from severe, often debilitating, pressure pain; however, pain occurs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for HS sufferers during flare-ups, and is difficult to manage.
~
Persistent lesions may lead to the formation of sinus tracts, or tunnels connecting the abscesses under the skin. At this stage, complete healing is usually not possible, and progression of the disease in the area is inevitable. Occurrences of bacterial infections and cellulites (deep tissue inflammation) are likely at these sites.
~
Because of the drainage which may have a foul odor, fever and fatigue caused by acute inflammation and the physical restrictions caused by pain and skin deformation, people often cannot work, drive, exercise or even perform day-to-day tasks, and are ashamed to go out in public. HS sufferers may go through severe bouts of depression, avoid public and inter-personal contact, become sedentary and often overweight.
~
HS typically goes undiagnosed for years because patients are ashamed to speak with anyone. When they do see a doctor, the disease is frequently misdiagnosed. Only relatively few physicians are able to recognize it and even when they do, suggested treatments are often ineffective, temporary and sometimes even harmful. There is no known cure nor any consistently effective treatment; what works for one person may not work for another. In advanced, chronic cases, surgery is often the choice, but recurrences of HS are not uncommon.
~
The mechanisms of the disease are described in this article.
from The Cure Zone site…
~
Historically, HS has been considered a rare disorder, because it is difficult to accurately estimate the number of HS victims; they conceal their condition, even from friends and close relatives. Estimates, however, indicate at least 1 million – potentially up to 12 million – Hidradenitis Suppurativa sufferers in the United States alone!
~
What’s in a name…
~
HS was first described in 1839 and has since been called many names. We still cannot agree on what to call it. Germans prefer Akne Inversa, the French still like to use Verneuil’s, which we’ll admit, sounds much better than Hidradenitis Suppurativa (‘oozing inflamed sweat glands’). All are equally correct and equally wrong. All but names for symptoms of an underlying disease we don’t yet know.

Stages of the Disease
~
Hidradenitis typically develops slowly over time. Since there are no 100% successful treatments it will run its course. Development differs, however, from individual to individual. With some, the disease may stagnate and never develop past a mild stage, with others, it may escalate and become a debilitating disease. We do not know why.
~
This is how HS may progress:
~
~ Stage I: Solitary or multiple isolated abscess formation without scarring or sinus tracts;
~ Stage II: Recurrent abscesses, single or multiple widely separated lesions, with beginning sinus tract formation (“tunneling”) and cicatrisation (formation of scar tissue);
~ Stage III: Diffuse or broad involvement across a regional area with multiple interconnected sinus tracts, significant cicatrisation and persistent abscesses.

IR – Insulin Resistance

Posted in IR - Insulin Resistance tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 6:40 am by PCOSLady

IR – Insulin Resistance
~
Insulin resistance is a condition in which the body produces insulin but does not use it properly. Insulin, a hormone made by the pancreas, helps the body use glucose for energy. Glucose is a form of sugar that is the body’s main source of energy.
~
When people are insulin resistant, their muscle, fat, and liver cells do not respond properly to insulin. As a result, their bodies need more insulin to help glucose enter cells. The pancreas tries to keep up with this increased demand for insulin by producing more. Eventually, the pancreas fails to keep up with the body’s need for insulin. Excess glucose builds up in the bloodstream, setting the stage for diabetes. Many people with insulin resistance have high levels of both glucose and insulin circulating in their blood at the same time.

Medical research has now identified insulin resistance as a serious condition that causes your cells to become insensitive to insulin. When people suffering from excess weight or obesity fail to address insulin resistance, the possibility of severe complications such as cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and sexual dysfunction can dramatically accelerate.
~
The medical community is now beginning to understand how vital it is for our cells to receive the correct amounts of nutrients and minerals – such as alpha-lipoic acid, chromium, vitamin D and magnesium – in order to effectively process insulin and glucose.
~
Tests:
In order to process insulin and glucose properly you need to have these nutrients and mineral levels checked:
~ alpha-lipoic acid
~ chromium
~ vitamin D
~ Magnesium
