Too much COFFEE & ENERGY drinks CAN cause more harm than good and are causing long term health issues. What’s the latest healthy alternatives to help lesson or replace the caffeine?
DR WEST SAYS………We really want:
- Healthy MAGNESIUM and PROTEIN levels. So try a healthy protein snack like almonds or a hard-boiled egg. A Starbuck’s protein box works. Even better, make this your 3pm snack, between lunch and dinner. You will have more energy to finish the day.
- Eat SUNFLOWER SEEDS. Sunflower seeds are packed with 5 different energy boosting b vitamins in one seed. Chew MINT GUM.
- Surprisingly, mint gum has shown to boost blood flow to the brain generating more energy to the body.
- Eat smaller, more frequent meals.
- GO TO BED 20 min earlier!
FORGET their name? Having a problem remembering things? Dr West reveals the top 7 things you can do now to sharpen that memory.
DR WEST SAYS…..“Eating foods rich in OMEGA 3S, VITAMIN B, C and E, getting good blood flow to the brain thru exercise, deepening your REM sleep, exercising the brain thru crossword puzzles, or any type of reading and writing at least twice a day, engage an activity once a day that reduces stress and get this, a new study show that those allergic to gluten can suffer from unnecessary memory loss from wheat. Try supplementing Ginko Biloba and Phosphatidylserine.(both found in GHR Platinum)”
THINNING HAIR, what do we do now to naturally reverse that?
DR WEST SAYS…..“Thinning hair is not just part of getting old, it can be an indictor of a nutritional deficiency or elevated blood glucose. Eating a low-glycemic diet, fueling your body with foods high in iron, like fish, beans, spinach but to fully absorb the iron you need plenty of VITAMIN C, and you cant grow hair without the growth hormone, so getting good GROWTH HORMONE SUPPORT can also help restore your body natural balance and thicken your hair.”
1/3 of America is sleep deprived. Recent studies shows POOR SLEEP causes fatigue, poor concentration, foggy memory and unattractive facial skin which LITERALLY makes us physically look older. What can you do now to break the pattern?
DR WEST SAYS….. Try this:
- Soon after waking up, GET INTO THE MORNING SUN, even if it means that you just sit in sunny window for a few minutes. The sunlight tells your body's natural biological clock that it's time to wake up and that same internal clock will then be set to tell your body it's time to go to sleep in about 14 to 16 hours.
- You’re also, not going to believe this, but eat more cherries! Cherries contain a natural melatonin that is shown to deepen sleep.
- A new British study has revealed that one in six women sleep better after intimacy with their mate.
TO TAKE or NOT TO TAKE a MULTIVITAMIN? Why relying on nutrients SOLEY from foods may be a bad idea…
DR WEST SAYS…..“If you are on the run, busy, eating a typical American diet,this gives you the INSURANCE that you’re getting all your necessary recommended nutrients. If you are over the age of 50, our bodies simply don’t absorb nutrients as good as it did. Multivitamins can help with nutritional deficiencies. ALSO, if you are on any type of medications, this could be zapping away some of the nutrients in your food, in fact Harvard University’s nurses health study found that women who took their mv for 15 years had a 75% less risk of colon cancer. My motto is: to catch it, before it catches you, so I say yes, protect your beautiful body, take a daily multivitamin and invest in a better tomorrow.
Going grocery shopping? Add these to the grocery list, the TOP TEN foods that FLATTEN the BELLY:
DR WEST SAYS…..“Ok, so here’s the list, try to get as much organic versions of this as you can but here’s the staple list:
- Brown rice
- Probiotic Yogurt
- Low sodium Veggie
- Leafy Greens
Now here’s the magic trick, try to combine a few of these as a light mid day snack between lunch and dinner, maybe around 3-4pm. That way you keep your metabolism burning, balances your blood sugar and helps flatten that unwanted belly flat.
GREY HAIR? Can you really restore your natural hair color? Fact or Fiction? If so, how?
DR WEST SAYS…..“Absolutely, studies show the reduction of melanin, which is the pigmentation that gives your hair its natural color, is a major cause of greying. There ARE ways, however, to naturally increase Melanin. Safe sun exposure is important and adding two daily nutrients to your diet, Gingko Biloba and Tyrosine both actually found in the GHR Platinum. But yes, naturally increasing MELANIN can do the trick.”
Too busy for Facebook OR coffee with friends? A new shocking study reveals that SOCIAL ISOLATION can greatly threaten our health.
DR WEST SAYS…..“ Research shows that poor social connections is just as damaging to our health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day (Holt-Lunstad, 2010). Social networks like facebook and friendships not only have an impact on reducing the risk of mortality, but they also lower the chances of getting certain diseases and even recover faster when one may get sick.”
Are people saying you "LOOK TIRED"? Discover the quickest and effective trick to help treat those bags under your eyes.
DR WEST SAYS…..“Well, one very effective way is to place extra firm TOFU patches, a half-inch thick, under each eye for 10 minutes a day for two weeks. What happens is the soy in the tofu helps increase collagen and the flavonoids in the tofu helps reduce sun damage. Even the weight alone will help push the swelling out of the area.”
