Beaufort Health and Fitness: 4 Pillars Of Inflammation
“Hey! What’s going on? I thought of doing a video on the 4 Pillars of Inflammation and Oxidative Stress. And this is a very important topic because those are the things that create disease, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, etcetera. And so we want to reduce chronic inflammation and oxidative stress but before I go on to those 4 pillars I think it’s important to explain what is inflammation. Inflammation is essentially when there’s an injury or a disease or something like that there’s increase of the blood supply to that area which is why it gets red and hot so that cytokines can help prepare the area. And so and this is just the basic aspect. It’s an immune system response, right? and keep in mind that 70-80% of your immune system is in your gut. So that can last for days, it can last for weeks but we want to stay away from which produces disease neurological disorders to as well is chronic inflammation and chronic oxidative stress.
Hey EF Fam,
It is in my opinion based on years of experience and studying the gut/brain connection, the majority of Americans have gut issues that are leading to a myriad of health issues.
In this age of medicine, we are sometimes overwhelmed by the vast amount of man-made remedies to our natural problems. Got a cold? Here’s some drugs. Allergies? Take shots. High cholesterol/blood pressure/blood sugar? Drugs, drugs, drugs. Both OTC and prescription medications seem as natural as inhaling and exhaling these days. But is medicating really necessary?
EarthFIT Medication… Fitness and Nutrition
I was put on meds at a young age, oblivious to the long term consequences. They could have potentially destroyed my life; in fact, they almost did. I am lucky that I didn’t become a statistic; rather, I woke up at one point and did what ever I needed to do to take my life back. I see so many people who are on meds nowadays struggling, and this is one of the many reasons I ended up in health and fitness industry: to help people wake up and take control of their lives, to help people get their physical and mental health back. People are waking up to the fact that these meds are dangerous and can have dire consequences. Many people who come in for a fitness assessment say things like, “I refuse to go on medication.”. They are searching for holistic approaches.
Hey EF Fam,
Below is one of my favorite soup recipes that I found from Jordan Rubin the creator of Garden of life. Bone broth is a powerful stuff for healing and health. livingwaterhealthandwellness.com
Countless times a week, “Coach, whats a good, quick snack to eat before my workout?”
In todays world they’re are numerous supplemental ”pre-workouts” on the market. So which one is right for you? Don’t feel pressured by shiny labels and mis-educated salespeople trying to make a buck at your expense. Now I’m not saying all these powdery substances are bad, is their a better way to obtain the benefits? perhaps. Is there a healthier way to retain the reward that these supplements produce? DEFINITELY. Educate yourself on these products before you buy blind.
Breaking News: As of last month the World Health Organization (WHO) lowered their daily sugar intake recommendations from 10 percent of calorie count to 5 percent. That works out to about 6 teaspoons — or 25 grams — of sugar per day for someone whose BMI is between 18-25 (considered normal).
Most people aim to have a well-maintained body. But some of them for various reasons are not willing to do any physical activity, and just prefer to lessen their food intake by partaking in off-the-wall diet food programs. Yet there are numerous people who do not know how to implement proper diet and nutrition. The long and short of it is that eating starvation diet food recipes or crash cleanses to lose weight would only work if you remain consistent. And no one can consistently starve himself/herself or go on a life long cleanse. The kicker is that diets work best if you accompany it with Beaufort SC personal training or a physical activity.
Hey EF Fam,
The last email should have gotten the message across about the importance of gut health. The great news about all this is that gut health can be improved fairly easily.
