millie says AGE gracefully not gruesomely

AGE gracefully not gruesomely. who knows the definitive answer why marlon brando plunged from utmost physical beauty quickly over to the other side… using he, who was emotionally tormented (stress’ed), laden with diabetes (obese, sugared and pickled), had congestive heart failure (obese, oxidatively damaged) and cancer (mutated cell’ed) as a shockingly poignant example….one can envision AGE, despite its chemical complexities.

advanced glycation entities (AGE) are the result of a chemical process in the body that happens when a poor lifestyle (high fat, sugar, alcohol, smoking meets low fruits, veggies, antioxidants, fibre, exercise) greets middle age. what you get when you combine overdoses of sugar and with free-radicals in the long run. beauty one decade, beast the next. these lead to wrinkles, large pores and nevi in the nose, blindness from cataracts, clogs in the arteries leading to strokes and heart attacks and possibly cancer, of which marlon brando had…them all.

millie says calibrate the span of life and health

calibrate the span of life and health. currently north americans suffer most from preventable ‘illnesses of excess’ related to smoking, drinking, poor diets, stress and lack of exercise. Some of these conditions include metabolic syndrome, heart disease, depression, kidney diseases, diabetes type II, infertility and certain cancers. we are living longer but suffering more chronically resulting in a life though lengthy, not necessarily happy. Canada currently ranks 10th on the map of merriment while the land-of-the-free-home-of-the-brave is way down the list at number 23. trudging moderately through the wasteful mounds of temptation to find long-lasting wellbeing as lightness at the end of the tunnel can be achieved by OWNING this chart of science simplified. I said O-W-N it.

millie says on the 12 days of christmas

on the 12 days of christmas my true love gave to me 12 essential B vitamins. essential because they are necessarily consumed in order to thrive. while there are gaps between the Bs due to the fact that some were originally deemed as vitamins and later discovered are nucleotides, others are non essential- as the body doesn’t need them consumed since it or another organisms’ bodies synthesize them. a long list of 22 Bs plus an additional 7 bi-nomialed roster exists but the currently accepted by nutritional standards is this:

note: Left off this usual list of multi Bs are the following purposeful yet contraversial Bs: Inositol, Choline, Carnatine, Laetrile, Lipoic Acid and PABA each have their own therapeutic function though potentially have side effects greater than the those on the Bs of B complex.

Vitamin B12 Cyanocobalamin
Deficiency causes macrocytic anemia, elevated homocysteine, peripheral neuropathy, memory loss and other cognitive deficits. It is most likely to occur among elderly people as absorption through the gut declines with age; the autommune disease pernicious anemia is another common cause.

treat the the whole tree.  The branch is only the presenting symptom.  In any condition, acute or chronic, the whole tree is involved, the root being the cause.  If the emphasis is placed on bandaging the sticks, leaves and buds with gorgeous silk teffeta, at the expense of watering and nourishing the roots…well that’s a pretty silly tree.

Use the table analogy to seek mental health.

Draw out your condition or diagnosis on top of a table.  Imagine there are 3 legs supporting this table 1) the cognitive leg are the thoughts that instigate the disorder such as “what will people think of me?” or “I don’t deserve love”, etc. 2) The behaviour leg is a reaction to avoid the negative thoughts which may be poor coping mechanisms in the form of alcohol, drugs, anger, violence, isolation, denial etc. 3) The physical symptoms are the the result of the poor coping and might be the result of a poor lifestyle, or the physical result of stress, anxiety, worry, panic, obsessive thoughts etc. If this resonates, seek Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) from a clinical psychologist or similar practitioner.

Don’t let nutrient deficiencies slide.  Boost up daily on vitamins if your meds are zapping necessary nutrients in your body.  1) the birth control pill depletes folic acid and B6 2) corticosteroids and glucocorticoids drain calcium 3) Antidepressants diminish B6, CoQ10 and melatonin 4) antacids lessen vitamin K, All Bs except B5, biotin and healthy bacteria. 

One of these days studies will show that every nutrient known to human plays a part in preventing chronic illness such as cancer so boost up now.  Gain health.

Tempt yourself with the sugars of a carmelized onion. Abstaining from added sugar, artificial sweeteners, juice, pop, candy, milk chocolate, pastries and sugary alcohols for 6 weeks will allow your taste buds to return to normal. They’ll re-adjust to enjoy the natural sugars in grains, vegetables and fruit while keeping the calories out of way so you not only taste sweeter you look sweeter too.

Take the heat.  When put on the hot seat, I will own up to what I’ve done wrong, learn from mistakes and incorporate them into my life’s lessons.  Then it will feel cool.
