Eggs are ok, even the yolk!

October 17, 2014

We’re seeing more and more research showing that eggs are ok and can be part of a healthy diet. It’s about time! Myself and my fellow nutritionists/integrative doctors have been saying this for years. I even say “yes, you can eat the yolk” on the back of my business card.

Here is some of the recent research:

An article on Webmd, Egg-Rich Diet Not Harmful in Type 2 Diabetes discusses the results of a new study to be published later this month. The findings were presented at the European Association for the Study of Diabetes 2014 Meeting last month by Nicholas Fuller, PhD, from the Boden Institute Clinical Trials Unit, University of Sydney, Australia

The findings suggest that eating two eggs per day, 6 days a week can be a safe part of a healthy diet for people with type 2 (that’s 12 eggs a week – yeah!)

Eggs don’t have a bad effect on cholesterol levels in people with type 2 diabetes.

…those in the high-egg group showed a trend toward HDL improvement

Researchers also found that eating an egg-rich diet for 3 months was linked to better appetite control, and may also provide a greater sense of feeling full.

The high-egg group also reported more enjoyment of foods, less boredom, and more satisfaction with the diet (I really like this finding!)

A paper published last month in the British Journal of Nutrition : “Cholesterol and egg intakes and the risk of type 2 diabetes: The Japan Public Health Center-based Prospective Study“  found that:

higher intake of cholesterol or eggs may not be associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes in Japanese populations

This interesting animal study “Orally administered whole egg demonstrates antidepressant-like effects in the forced swimming test on rats” published in August:

demonstrated that whole-egg treatment exerts an antidepressant-like effect

It is suggested that whole egg may be an excellent food for preventing and alleviating the conditions of major depression

Skipping breakfast can increase depression, anxiety and stress levels and eggs can be part of a healthy breakfast. This May 2014 paper “A cross-sectional investigation of depressive, anxiety, and stress symptoms and health-behavior participation in Australian university students” found that:

For males, depressive symptoms were associated with skipping breakfast and poor sleep quality.

For females, depressive symptoms were associated with skipping breakfast, inadequate vigorous physical activity, and short or long sleep hours.

You don’t want to skip breakfast – ever! Low blood sugar can result in anxiety, mood swings, irritability and feeling easily overwhelmed, so it’s really important to get a good start to the day with good quality protein like eggs. Here is a simply yet delicious Egg Muffin recipe from Make It Paleo: Over 200 Grain-Free Recipes for Any Occasion.

We’re going to be talking more about the health and mood benefits of eggs (and animal protein) during season 2 of The Anxiety Summit. It runs from Nov 3-16 and you’ll learn about this and many other nutritional and natural solutions for anxiety, panic attacks, OCD and social anxiety. We’ll cover the research and practical solutions too.

Egg muffin recipe from Make It Paleo

October 17, 2014

make-it-paleo

Here is a deliciously simple and quick recipe from one of my new favorite recipe books called Make It Paleo: Over 200 Grain-Free Recipes for Any Occasion, shared here with permission from one of the authors, Hayley Mason.

Low blood sugar can result in anxiety, mood swings, irritability and feeling easily overwhelmed, so it’s really important to get a good start to the day with good quality protein like eggs. And we’re seeing more and more research showing that eggs are ok, even the yolk!

Eggs Muffins

Anyone on the go will appreciate the simplicity of this recipe. These delicious little quiche-like muffins are easy to make ahead of time and grab at a moment’s notice.

Ingredients:

½ tsp coconut oil
½ medium onion chopped
1 cup broccoli, chopped
¼ green pepper, chopped
¼ red pepper, chopped
8 eggs
Salt and pepper to taste

Prep time: 10 minutes; Cook time: 18-20 minutes
Makes 4 large muffins or 8 small ones

Process:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 deg F
  2. Grease muffin tin with coconut oil
  3. Rinse and chop vegetables into ¼ inch pieces
  4. Divide vegetables evenly between muffin tins
  5. Whisk the eggs, then pour into the tins, dividing it evenly
  6. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, then stir the vegetable and egg mixture briefly to evenly disperse the vegetables throughout the egg
  7. Bake the egg muffins in the oven for 18-20 minutes

Here are some pictures of my attempt at these while on my recent trip to South Africa. We were getting ready to head to the Natal midlands for an overnight trip to the cheetah breeding project and needed some healthy “padkos” (South African slang for “food for the road”) so my niece Tamara and I whipped up a few muffins just before we left for the trip.

Since raw onions were not a favorite in my sister’s family, I pre-cooked the onions in a little coconut oil. I think you could lightly steam the other veggies too if you don’t like them crunchy. It’s going to add to your prep time unless you use left-over veggies from the night before.

In our case, we didn’t have quite enough veggies so we ended up with two egg-only muffins! They were all delicious!

Make It Paleo is a wonderful recipe book with many simple and basic recipes as well as some pretty fancy ones too. One quick caution – I do think there are rather too many desserts and baked goods featured – so be warned and keep to recipes in the front! Enjoy!

Authors Hayley and her husband Bill Staley are the dynamic cooking duo behind Primal Palate. Their lifelong passion for food and cooking has led them to write an internationally recognized blog, three bestselling Paleo cookbooks, as well as create a widely popular app and website.

Breast Cancer Awareness: don’t be driven by fear

October 13, 2014
DrNalini Chilkov’s new book

Dr. Nalini Chilkov’s new book

October is Breast Cancer awareness month so here are 7 resources to keep you informed, hopeful and inspired to take charge of your overall health and breast health – for prevention and healing – and no more fear!

#1 Reduce stress in your life. Here is a blog post I wrote in 2010 with information from my colleague Ellyn Hilliard: 10 Unique Ways to Support You During Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Reduce the stresses in your life. Calm the nervous system. Meditate, go on a walk…

Start to look at chemicals in your life. Find natural alternatives to cleaning products.

#2 Exercise to prevent cancer and have fun at the same time

up to a third of breast cancer cases in Western countries could be avoided with a nutritious diet and exercise

If exercise is a chore, find something fun to do and it will be a totally different experience

#3 Be aware that a lot of pinkwashing goes on – it’s quite awful how people are being taken advantage of. And know there is so much you can do that is healing and preventative. You can read more here: Pinkwashing for the cure (ridiculous!) or green for prevention?

Pinkwasher: (pink’-wah-sher) noun. A company or organization that claims to care about breast cancer by promoting a pink ribbon product, but at the same time produces, manufactures and/or sells products that are linked to the disease.

Helyane Waldman’s book “The Whole-Food Guide for Breast Cancer Survivors: A Nutritional Approach to Preventing Recurrence”

Rebecca Katz’s “The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen: Nourishing, Big-Flavor Recipes for Cancer Treatment and Recovery”

#4 Ann Louise Gittleman, author of The Fat Flush Diet and Get the Sugar Out, just posted a great blog on how to become a breast health warrior

Raise your daily Vitamin D intake (D is like a hormone rather than a vitamin) to at least 1,000 – 4,000 IU to reach a level of at least 52 ng/mL. Women with serum levels at

Get the Sugar Out! Plain and simple, cancer feeds on sugar which is known to immobilize white blood cells for up to five hours.

#5 Dr Nalini Chilkov is my cancer referral source and she has a new cancer booklet called 32 Ways to OutSmart Cancer. It has beautiful back-to-basics advice about eating nourishing nutrient-dense, antioxidant- and polyphenol-rich real whole food. I especially like the section on herbs and spices and love the chapter on gratitude. Here is a yummy salmon recipe from her blog.

#6 Be hopeful and optimistic. My colleague Fran Sussman shares her journey and story of recovery from breast cancer in this article called I am a breast cancer survivor: There is hope. Fran will be offering six-week support classes for women diagnosed with breast cancer starting in December.

I’ve come through it, with great resilience and rebounding health. I feel better than ever post-breast cancer, at age 60. I am healthy; my doctors concur.

What can you do for prevention? Support your body with optimal nutrition, exercise, sleep and hydration. Use nutrition to minimize inflammation and insulin resistance.

 Acknowledge and work with your fear, but don’t be driven by it.

#7 And my final piece of advice is stated so beautifully by Fran: “Acknowledge and work with your fear, but don’t be driven by it.” Anxiety and depression is very common in people who have been diagnosed with cancer.  This is understandable, but I encourage you to look for and get support in this area too, so you are not driven by your fear.

You may need to address low GABA levels, keep your blood sugar stable with good quality protein at breakfast, support your adrenals, and drink calming carob instead of coffee.  There is so much you can do.

If you’re looking for more great resources for your healing journey, I invite you to join us on The Anxiety Summit, Nov 3-16, and learn more about nutritional and natural solutions for anxiety.  The topics our expert address will also lead to improved overall health, improved heart health and will help with cancer prevention too.

Day3Banner

If you haven’t yet hear me present or want to hear me again, my food-mood-anxiety interview aired today (day 3) together with Marc David, Katie Wellness Mama and Lauren Geersten.

Here are a few gems from my food-mood-anxiety interview:

To raise low serotonin:

  • 5-HTP or tryptophan (amino acid supplements) taken between meals
  • Exercise, sunshine or a full spectrum lamp, and diet (quality real food and wild fish and grass-fed red meat and healthy fats!)
  • Pumpkin seeds – research shows that a functional food rich in tryptophan and zinc (made of pumpkin seeds) reduced social anxiety and helps sleep!

We didn’t get to talk about all the amino acids and brain chemical imbalances so here is a high level summary:

  • glutamine for low blood sugar
  • GABA for stress-eating/low GABA
  • tyrosine when you need a sugar or caffeine pickup/low catecholamines
  • DPA for comfort/emotional eating and low endorphins.

I love and highly recommend the eating psychology work of Marc David and I really enjoyed Katie’s talk on beautiful healthy coconut!

Here are some gems from her interview:

  • anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties and high in antioxidants
  • high in MCTs and easily digested so you don’t need bile to digest them, plus they help boost metabolism
  • she combines it with oregano oil for oil pulling/swishing in mouth
  • use it for cooking, as a body lotion, to help prevent diaper rash, as a hair detangler, as a massage oil

Chilling out with cheetahs – using nature for stress relief, joy and pure awesomeness!

October 3, 2014

0 skye

I was recently visiting family in South Africa and promised to share pictures from our incredible trip to the Kwa Cheetah Breeding Project. My sister Woo and I decided to do the early morning 50 minute bush walk with Skye, one of the male cheetahs. All I can say is wow! What an experience!

I’ve written about how nature and exercise can help to boost mood and reduce stress and this certainly did this and more. I hope you get to enjoy some of it via my photos.

Here I am getting to meet Skye before we head out. And what a meeting it was – he purrs just like a kitty cat only louder and deeper! Incredible first encounter!

We took Skye for a 50 minute walk through the bush around Kwa Cheetah – or maybe he took us for a walk! At one stage he spotted his sister and bolted to say hello and I got kind of dragged behind him. Here is with the ranger and my sister Woo.

After the early morning bushwalk we all got to spend the next two hours watching cheetahs being trained to run and hunt, and various other fun activities. This is my 7-year old niece in one enclosure – fearless!

 

7 kwa cheetch breeding

Of course we both highly recommend Kwa Cheetah Breeding Project: “The main goal behind the project is not to sell cheetahs to zoos or any other likewise place, but to release our cats back into the African wilderness.”

Here are some stats on why they do what they do: “The reason we are trying to do this is because there are only between seven and ten thousand cheetahs left worldwide. About two thousand cheetahs are dying every four years due to three main factors: natural predators (like lions and hyenas), humans (poaching is a big one, so is farming) and poor genetics. You can read all the stats here.

Next time you’re in South Africa, go and visit – you’ll be giving back and making a difference, and you’ll find you’ll get back so much more: joy, awe and an amazing sense of calmness!

Nutrients for dementia: could they help during benzodiazepine withdrawal?

September 19, 2014

Half Coconut and Flower on Bamboo Mat

Could certain nutrients help with memory and cognitive issues, and the “pseudo-dementia” symptoms so many people experience when withdrawing from benzodiazapines?

In a recent article I shared the new research on benzodiazepines being linked to increased Alzheimer’s risk and other serious concerns.

Alison, who was featured in the Boston Globe story, commented on the above blog post:

I am only 29 years old, and I developed what I refer to as pseudo-dementia once I developed a tolerance to benzodiazepines and it got worse once the drug was stopped. From what I have seen from others recovering from and in tolerance to benzodiazepines, cognitive functioning and memory can get hit hard and actually mimic dementia. I wonder if the symptoms these elders are experiencing are true Alzheimer’s, or a side effect/withdrawal effect.

This really got me thinking. She makes an excellent point. It may well be that the symptoms they are seeing in the study are a side effect/withdrawal effect, rather than true Alzheimer’s disease and may be reversible. It surprises me that the study authors have not commented on this since cognitive effects are well documented in the literature.

Here are a few examples I found:

Benzodiazepines revisited—will we ever learn?” Published in Addiction in 2011

“The review noted a series of adverse effects that continued to cause concern, such as cognitive and psychomotor impairment. In addition, dependence and abuse remain as serious problems. Despite warnings and guidelines, usage of these drugs remains at a high level.”

Benzodiazepine harm: how can it be reduced?” Published in British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology in January this year (2014)

“Adverse effects comprise sedation subjectively and cognitive and psychomotor impairment objectively. Complex skills such as driving can be compromised… Withdrawal and dependence have excited particular concern, and even polemic. Perhaps a third of long term (beyond 6 months) users experience symptoms and signs on attempting to withdraw – anxiety, insomnia, muscle spasms and tension and perceptual hypersensitivity.”

I was not able to find much in the literature on pseudo-dementia. I did see it listed on the benzo.org.uk site but not elsewhere in relation to benzodiazapines.

I did find this paper “Pseudo-dementia: A neuropsychological review” which is presumably something different (as it refers to depression/dementia). This part may be applicable: “ ‘The pseudo component’ which denotes the actual lack of the neurodegenerative dementia” and the fact that it can be reversed.

This all inspired me to do some digging on dementia. If what they are seeing in participants of the British Medical Journal is not true dementia, it’s very encouraging to think that recovery is possible.

There are some very powerful foods and nutrients that help certain people with dementia and I wonder if they would also help with the benzodiazepine-induced pseudo-dementia:

Not all of the above would work for everyone because of biochemical individuality, and there are mixed results in the literature, but it’s worth assessing for possible deficiencies and addressing overall nutrient status.

It would be wonderful to think that benzo recovery can be improved in the areas of cognition, memory and “pseudo-dementia.”

Interestingly, many of these above nutrients are also factors in anxiety and/or depression and may be related to why someone sought help and was prescribed benzos initially.

P.S. There nutrients are great for overall brain function so anyone could benefit from one or more of them. I actually take 20mg of lithium orotate a day and it helps keep my post-menopausal brain sharp and focused.

P.P.S. I have recently learned that many people in benzo withdrawal do not tolerate supplements so please USE CAUTION and work with your health practitioner.  I will do a part 2 follow up to this blog listing foods high in these nutrients in case you feel more comfortable and do better with a food based approach.

The Hashimoto’s Institute summit: Autoimmune thyroid dysfunction and anxiety

September 16, 2014

hashimotos institute summit

There is a valuable summit airing this week: September 15 – September 22, and the topic is all about Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis.

The Hashimoto’s Institute (and summit) was created by my colleagues Dr. Izabella Wentz (the pharmacist), Dr. Alan Christianson (the doctor) and Andrea Nakayama (the nutritionist).

You may recall Dr. Izabella Wentz, PharmD, “The Thyroid Pharmacist”, from The Anxiety Summit in June. Her very popular interview was Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and Anxiety. She shared how she would co-host a summit purely on the topic of Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and here it is.

Here are some facts on Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis:

  • Autoimmune thyroid dysfunction is the leading cause of hypothyroidism in the developed world
  • It can lead to weight gain, poor energy, hair loss, constipation, and even anxiety and depression.
  • It’s something I see with so many of my clients (and so many don’t even know they have it)
  • Statistics estimate that as many as 20% of people have circulating antibodies, which is indicative of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis
  • The conventional medical model does not offer much besides using medications.

Here is the break down for the week:

Day 1: Diagnosis – test don’t guess, learn what you need to know to plan your recovery
Day 2: Dosage – medication options and strategies
Day 3: Diet/Digestion – healing from within
Day 4: Daily rhythms – balance your adrenals and other hormones
Day 5: Detox – remove the triggers
Day 6: Defense – immune repair
Day 7: Design your recovery – creating your personal recovery plan

By the end of next week, you’ll have a detailed plan of action to find and fix the cause of your thyroid problems.

There is no cost to attend this awesome event and it’s completely online. When you register you get some great free gifts

Alan Christianson, NMD – “Healing Hashimoto’s – A Savvy Patient’s Guide”
Izabella Wentz, PharmD – “Guide to Overcoming Hashimoto’s Fatigue”
Andrea Nakayama, CNE, CNC – “Mapping Your Signs & Symptoms: Addressing Your Hashimoto’s from a Full System’s Perspective”

Plus, A full day of Special Topics from Taming Post-Partum Flares to Addressing Underlying Immune Triggers

Sexy Younger You summit: Why are depression and anxiety more common as we age?

September 15, 2014

SYY banner

Sexy Younger You! Season 3
Create More Vibrant, Healthy and Sexy No Matter What Your Age

25 of the World’s Leading experts on de-aging will be sharing their secret ingredients, special sauce and myth-busting facts to guide you toward a more healthy, vibrant and sexy you – at any age. Join hosts Dr. Anna Cabeca, OB/GYN, Functional Medicine and Age Management Specialist, and Robin Nielsen, Certified Nutrition Consultant and Growing Younger Expert for this global telesummit event at no charge so you can stop feeling OLD and FATigued and start feeling fabulous. The good news is that with some simple science-based information and a little commitment to yourself, you can age vibrantly and feel wonderful at any age. Bring on the fabulous!

This summit has already started (so sorry about the late notification) but it’s not too late register. I just started listening and am learning a lot already – I always learn so much on this summit!

I loved the interview with Dr. Susanne Bennett, best-selling author of The 7-Day Allergy Makeover; host of the Wellness for Life radio show; a leading natural allergy expert, specializing in anti-aging and lifestyle medicine; a Huffington Post contributor and television personality. She shared how to achieve a Flat Sexy Belly by revealing her “Inner Gut Secrets!”

Here are a few gems from her interview:

  • Fermentable carbohydrates are the sugars that are easily fermented in your digestive system, and include oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, fructans, galactans and polyols. If you have SIBO/Small Intestinal Bacteria Overgrowth, these foods are going to be problematic, and may lead to bloating and even mood issues.
  • There is a new area of study called psychobiotics, spear-headed by Dr. Timothy Dinan, suggesting that certain “good” bacteria might have potential as a treatment for depression and other psychiatric maladies. Lactobacillus helveticus and Bifdobacterium longum have shown to reduce levels of stress hormones and maintain a calmer, peaceful state.

These could be some of the many reasons why are depression and anxiety more common as we age.

Here are a few of the upcoming speakers:

Dr. Sara Gottfried, New York Times Bestselling Author, of The Hormone Cure, and co-host of the #1 rated podcast on iTunes, The Health Bridge, will share with you her secrets on “Metabolism: How to keep It Humming As You Age”

Christy Whitman, NYTimes bestselling author of Taming Your Alpha Bitch: How To Be Fierce and Feminine (and Get Everything You Want!) and CEO/Founder of the Quantum Success Coaching Academy, will help you to “Creating Your Ideal Body”

Rebecca Katz, purveyor of “YUM”, Founder and Director of the Healing Kitchens Institute and author of many cookbooks including The Longevity Kitchen, shares “How Food Can Help Us Enhance Our Brain Function, Mood, Memory, and Mental Clarity in Our Non-Stop Day to Day Life.”

TrudyScott_syydatesAnd if you haven’t yet heard me present, this is my talk:

Trudy Scott, Food Mood Expert, nutritionist and author of The Antianxiety Food Solution, on “The Amazing Amino Acids for Eliminating Anxiety and Emotional Eating. ” Low levels of brain chemicals or neurotransmitters such as GABA or serotonin could be another reason why depression and anxiety are more common as we age.

It’s all complimentary. Enjoy!
