As the American public continues to consume increasing levels of sugars, a study published just recently in Nature Communications shows that the accepted safe sugar levels for humans might not be so clear cut as previously thought...

 

Editor´s Note: How much sugar is "too much"? This article from Waking Times weighs the detrimental effects of sugar discovered in a new study by "Nature Communications" using mice. While it is still unclear to the body,  we do know unhealthy amounts of sugar provokes the body to lose its ability to utilize insulin plus sugar can trigger chronic ailments including diabetes, heart disease and obesity. The bottom line with sugar consumption is we all have to be ultimately responsible for what we consume.

 

Holistic Nutrition


by Joe Rakowski

I have great respect for the wisdom of the Vedas, although life today differs vastly from that our planet 5,000 years ago. In India, there has always been a substantial population who has traditionally lived a “vegetarian lifestyle,” or what in modern times may be referred to as a “lacto-vegetarian diet” that includes milk products; most likely from a cow that was family-raised or obtained from a nearby supplier...

 

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Holding true to either a Vegan or Ayurvedic lifestyle may sometimes prove difficult in our modern world of processed foods. Without our ability to trace our food back to its roots, challenges arise in maintaining a healthy and humane plant-based diet.

Editor's Note from Neda Smith: Gluten is the main protein found in wheat and in many people the body reacts to gluten as if it was a virus and attacks it and the surrounding tissue. It has the potential to exacerbate many other health problems throughout your body, which is why gluten has such a devastating effect on your overall health. Maia Alpern's, Is Gluten Making You Sick?, provides us with great insight into what it all means.

 

Holistic Nutrition


by Ziki Dekel, LAc

The question I'm asked most frequently by family, friends, and patients is "What should I be eating?" There is an immense amount of anxiety around our diets and what we put into our bodies.

The Chopra Center

Both Ayurveda and modern medicine recognize a lack of physical exercise as one of the lifestyle factors that contributes to the development and progression of diabetes. Obesity increases the risk of developing diabetes and negatively effects blood sugar control in individuals who have diabetes. For these reasons, being active and maintaining a healthy body weight is important in the treatment and prevention of diabetes...


Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Diabetes and obesity is a growing global epidemic. Ayurveda offers an understanding of the progression of different types of diabetes according to doshic imbalances. The Chopra Center has recently provided some excellent articles on diabetes, our diet, herbs to treat diabetes and yogic exercises to increase metabolism and aid the rebalancing of our bodies. Please read our three part series on diabetes and see how Ayurveda can shed some light on this difficult, but often manageable disease. Read Part 1 and Part 2. Namaste.
