So I was driving home after a long stressful day and I was thinking about all the food I was going to eat when I got home, then it hit me… I cannot eat I’m fasting😭why did this make me feel sad!?!?! 😂

Because I didn’t want food bc I was hungry but because I was stressed! 😩 So I came home had water with electrolytes and bone broth, and about to read my Bible study book 📖
tomorrow I’m going to start a long fast! I try to do a few longer fasts a few times a year bc 1. It is healthy 2. My body needs it 3. My faith needs it 4. My brain needs it (it helps me focus). It you do not fast regularly (intermittent fasting) I recommend you work your way up to longer fasting before jumping in!

Avocado fans, where are you?



These are just a few of the many wild mushrooms fruiting in the northern hemisphere at this time of year.

The land can provide us with everything we need. Get to know the wild beings on the land where you live. Adopt an eco-centric worldview. Get involved in land defense and regeneration efforts, so that future generations of all beings can live well for eons to come.

From Learn Your Land : Happy Autumnal Equinox! Here's a very brief list of wild edible mushrooms that you may be able to locate this time of year. This list mostly applies to fungi that grow in the temperate regions of eastern North America, and keep in mind that many other mushrooms could’ve made the list (e.g. shaggy mane and the cauliflower mushroom). For more information on each species, consult a field guide or a mycological key.

Is the beta-amyloid protein to blame for Alzheimer's disease?

A lot of scientific research tends to focus on a singular cause as it relates to various disease states. If you can clearly link a disease to one specific cause, that opens the door for something called, "monotherapy," where you can focus on creating one drug or treatment.

Nowhere is this more obvious than in Alzheimer's.

In this article, we'll discuss two of these treatments and discuss how one protein — beta-amyloid — could actually be BETTER for your brain than we'd first believed.

Read the whole article here. 👉

Image Description: A tweet card from Dr. Perlmutter that reads, "News Flash!

We actually need our tonsils, there are benefits to having your appendix, and beta-amyloid might not be the villain you think it is when it comes to Alzheimer's."

This is why diet is so important and why I do not do “cheat” days!

Your gut wall houses 70 percent of the cells that make up your immune system. You might not attribute digestive problems with allergies, arthritis, autoimmune diseases (irritable bowel syndrome, acne, chronic fatigue), mood disorders, autism, dementia, and cancer. Many diseases seemingly unrelated are actually caused by gut problems.

If you want to fix your health, start with your gut. Gut health literally affects your entire body.

Even in a perfect world, our gut has a hard time keeping things balanced. But in our world there are many things that knock our digestive system off balance. Those include:

1. A junk diet. This nutrient-poor diet makes all the wrong bacteria and yeast grow in the gut, leading to a damaged ecosystem.

2. Medication overuse. Anti-inflammatories, antibiotics, acid blocking drugs, and steroids damage the gut or block normal digestive function.

3. Infections and gut imbalances. These include small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), yeast overgrowth, and parasites.

4. Toxic overload. Including mercury and mold toxins.

5. Inadequate digestive enzymes. Stress, acid-blocking medications, and zinc deficiencies can all contribute to lack of adequate digestive enzyme function.

6. Stress. Chronic stress alters your gut nervous system, creating a leaky gut and changing the normal bacteria in the gut.

The foundation of good gut health begins with what you eat. Focus on fiber-rich vegetables, low-sugar fruits, non-gluten grain, and legumes.

You might also consider an elimination diet to address food sensitivities. Completely remove gluten, dairy, yeast, corn, soy and eggs for a week or two and see how your gut feels and what happens to your other symptoms.

I often follow a four-step strategy with patients to reduce inflammation and heal the gut. Many find when they employ these steps, they lose weight, feel better, and their symptoms improve:

Remove the bad bugs, drugs, and food allergens.
Replace needed enzymes, fiber, and prebiotic
Reinoculate your gut with good bacteria (probiotics)
Repair the gut lining with omega 3 fatty acids, zinc, glutamine, and other healing nutrients.

Yes 🙌🏻 this right here!!! ❤️❤️❤️

by “cute” i mean, look around at the statistics: a shocking 60 percent of American adults have a chronic disease, and 40 percent have two or more chronic diseases.Today someone will have a heart attack every 40 seconds, cancer is the second leading cause of death worldwide,50 million Americans have an autoimmune disease,and almost half the population of the United States has either prediabetes or diabetes.

Brain health problems are also on the rise. Around 20 percent of adults have a diagnosable mental disorder. Depression is now the leading cause of disability around the world. 1 in 5 American children ages three to seventeen (about 15 million kids) have a diagnosable mental, emotional, or behavioral disorder. Serious depression is worsening, especially among teens, with the su***de rate among teen girls reaching a forty-year high. Anxiety impacts more than 40 million Americans, and Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. Since 1979, deaths due to brain disease have increased by 66 percent in men and a whopping 92 percent in women.

And despite all of this, we are spending the most on healthcare yet are the sickest. By “cute” I mean: are you going to defend doing the same thing repeatedly, expecting a different result? Let’s stop the tired, archaicparadigm of “us vs them”“conventional vs functional medicine” tribalism bu****it. The only ones that get hurt are the people suffering from chronic health problems. Functional medicine is not “either-or” it’s “both-and” . All of my patients still see their conventional doctor. It’s called integrative medicine for a reason. Let’s bring together the best of both worlds and get these statistics turned around. That’s what I’m working on with my patients. Are you? 🤟🏽

The 6 Foods You Should Never Eat

While many people associate fasting with restricting eating for long periods of time, there are actually many styles with different timing, which can make fasting a much more approachable practice than you might think. In fact, many of you are probably already fasting without even realizing it.

The most basic kind of fast is the break taken between dinner and breakfast. Fasting during this time, which usually falls between 12 and 14 hours, falls into line with our natural circadian rhythms of when the sun is up or down.

The term intermittent fasting can describe multiple timetables for eating. A 5:2 approach means eating only about 25% of caloric needs during two separate days each week; a 16:8 intermittent fast means extending your nightly fast, taking 16 hours between dinner and breakfast, which many people feel good doing several days a week.

Other approaches include a complete 24-hour fast or time-restricted eating where you would only eat within a 6-hour window during the day.

One important caveat of fasting is that when you do eat, you still need to eat well. Fasting and then binging on ice cream and french fries is not going to get you anywhere. The same dietary guidelines I’m always sharing—eat real foods, tons of non-starchy colorful veggies, healthy fats, high-quality protein, etc.—are an amazing compliment to any fasting regime.

It’s also important to note that fasting isn’t for everyone. For example, those with a history of eating disorders or who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Be sure to talk about fasting with your practitioner to decide if it’s right for you.

There are thousands of phytochemicals that upregulate our antioxidant and longevity genes—so what makes sulforaphane so special? Sulforaphane upregulates glutathione. Often referred to as “the mother of all antioxidants,” glutathione lives up to its title. Glutathione is the most important molecule you need to stay healthy and prevent disease. It helps protect our DNA and cells from free radicals, oxidative stress, infections, and cancer.

Producing and maintaining a high level of glutathione is critical for promoting optimal health and longevity. The good news is we can produce glutathione internally, and sulforaphane is one of the ways we can upregulate its production.

Sulforaphane is neuroprotective. It crosses the blood-brain barrier and upregulates glutathione production, which consequently lowers neuroinflammation. Studies support sulforaphane as an effective treatment for improving clinical outcomes in neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and multiple sclerosis. There are also studies that support increased glutathione levels in the brain from sulforaphane administration helping to rebalance the brain chemistry of mood disorders like schizophrenia.

Glucoraphanin belongs to the family of phytochemicals known as glucosinolates, which are well known for their anti-cancer effects. The sulforaphane that’s derived from glucosinolates activates apoptosis, reduces cancer-cell proliferation, and stimulates detoxification pathways that help eliminate carcinogenic compounds from the body.

To get sulforaphane from food, you’re going to have to eat a lot—and I mean A LOT—of cruciferous vegetables. Broccoli sprouts are the most concentrated source of sulforaphane, just two ounces contains as much glucoraphanin as ¼-lb of broccoli!

Use broccoli sprouts to take your salad’s phytochemical richness to the next level. You can also make a tasty dressing to help tone down the bitterness of the sprouts. This brunch salad with tahini dressing recipe goes great with a couple of pinches of broccoli sprouts on top.
