Ask The Blood Detective - Cancer and Nutrition - does it work!

Cancer and Nutrition - does it work!

 

There is no specific cancer diet. This diet is meant to support overall health and wellbeing and is not to be considered as a substitute for sound medical advice or specifically for the standard of care (treatments) for you or anyone with cancer.

 

Cancer is a complex disease that involves genetics, diet, lifestyle, and environmental factors. It is believed that perhaps up to 60% of women’s cancers and 40% of men’s cancers are related to nutritional factors. The National Cancer Institute states that eating a healthy diet may prevent 33% of all cancer deaths. The World Cancer Research Fund and the American Institute for Cancer research has reviewed more than 4,500 studies on foods and cancer and came up with some dietary recommendations.

You are unique and your nutritional needs before, during and after cancer care are also unique. Your body weight, type of cancer, extent of cancer (tumor, metastasis, etc.), medications and other factors will determine how you should eat and what nutritional supplements you should consider consuming. Your nutritional needs for proteins, healthy fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals, phytonutrients and other nutraceuticals will change over time as your health situation changes including your laboratory tests. Tests such as a body composition analysis, blood pH, lactic acid, nitric oxide, vitamin C levels, vitamin C use tests, absorption tests, calcium, oxidative stress (MDA) and other analyses may be important for you to personalize nutritional needs.

 

Ask The Blood Detective - you will die of this….

YOU are going to die of this” is a radio show within which Dr. Michael Wald, the BloodDetective, describes the 12 leading causes of death in United States.

Cancer kills 598,000 people a year in the United States that accounts for 21.7% of all deaths. Overall, cancer risk from all cancers maybe reduced when one stops using tobacco and does not drink. People of a certain age maybe more predispose two different cancers. Exposure to radiation and sunlight increased cancer risk so minimizing that exposure is imperative.

Type one is diagnosed in young children ages 4 to 7 that tend to live far away from the equator. It may be a genetic risk of type one diabetes and it cannot be avoided. Type two diabetes is more common among adults over age 45 who are overweight or obese and have a history of diabetes. Type one diabetes is associated with very low insulin production.

Ask The Blood Detective - Intermittent fasting - truth and lies.

Join Dr. Michael Wald During this very needed discussion about intermittent fasting. Intermittent fasting means different things to different people. Some fast are known as 16:8 or 5:2. Large number of scientific studies have shown that, at least in animals that intermittent fasting can reduce the risk of many diseases and even helps reverse certain aspects of nature killers.

We know that intermittent fasting has positive facts upon a variety of essential hormonal systems. During intermittent fasting insulin levels drop and fat burning increases. Human growth hormone levels increase as much is five times normal which helps to burn fat, and maintain and put on more lean body mass. Cellular repair is increased as well and cellular garbage is removed. Genetic expression, a process during which genes can either express disease or not, is positively affected by certain types of fats. We know that several genes are up regulated that are related to longevity and disease protection perpetuated by fasting.

Intermittent fasting also seems to help weight loss. First, it involves consuming fewer calories. Additionally, and as long as you do not eat too much calories when you do eat during your fast, we lost should be from sad and not lean body mass. Weight-loss is also promoted by and Hensing hormone function. Insert levels drop, growth hormone levels rise as does noradrenalin levels all important for promoting fat burning. Studies have shown that weight-loss metabolic rates can increase between three and 8% over as little as 3 to 24 weeks. Other studies of shown intermittent fasting causes much less loss of muscle compared to continuous calorie restriction which is very difficult.

Both insulin resistance and diabetes type two W. seem to be reduced with intermittent fasting. We know that high blood sugar is the result of insulin resistance and fasting lowers insulin resistance and therefore protects against the development of type two diabetes. Human studies have shown that fasting sugars can be reduced between three and 6% and insulin levels can be reduced between 20 and 31%. Very importantly, intermittent fasting also reduces kidney damage which is a major complication of diabetes. It should be Kept in mind however that Women showed worsening of blood sugar in one study after fasting 22 days. What this means is that the healthcare provider must adjust the fasting to prevent this adverse affect.

We also know that intermittent fasting may reduce oxidative stress and inflammation. Oxidation destroys cells and is involved intimately with chronic disease cause and affect. Accident molecules also known as free radicals can damage DNA and promote cancer. Several good study show that intermittent fasting made hands the body’s ability to resist oxidative stress and inflammation.

Heart health is the number one killer in United States according to the center of disease control. Wrist factors including high blood fats like cholesterol and triglycerides are not to be perpetuating the disease, but intermittent fasting has been shown to lower these biomarkers. Although not proven in human studies yet, animal studies seem to suggest the reduction in lipids and therefore a trend toward reduction of cardiovascular deaths.

Intermittent fasting really does show to detox the body by enhancing cellular waste removal. A process known as autophagy Helps protect the brain again several neurologic diseases including Alzheimer’s. But this process also protects us against cancer and has promoted by intermittent fasting.

Real studies have shown that intermittent fasting, At least in animals, increases the tumor cells sensitivity to chemotherapy. What this means is that if one chooses chemotherapy for the cancer treatment intermittent fasting may improve how chemotherapy works. Another words, improves the effectiveness of chemotherapy.

Intermittent fasting is great for your brain. We know that fasting increases the growth of nerve cells known as neurons and also increases a particularly importantBrain hormone known as rain derived neurotrophic factor.

Alzheimer disease robs a person of their very identity and creates tremendous burden on family members who end up as caretakers. There is no magic bullet or a cure for Alzheimer’s disease but short term fast showed improvement inAlzheimer’s patients. Also, fasting helps protect one’s risk of developing to other horrible neurological disease is known as Parkinson’s disease and Huntington’s disease.

Can fasting help you live longer? Probably yes. Read studies have shown that intermittent fasting does extend lifespan. Continuous clock restriction of about 30% in rats increase their lifespan roughly 83%. You would have to reduce your daily caloric intake by 30% and this is nearly impossible as it would result in you becoming extremely thin and he would likely be hungry constantly. But, intermittent fasting, seems to get as much of the benefits without that difficulty.

As you can see, fasting of various types have the potential of both preventing disease, treating disease and mitigating the effects of disease. It is very important, according to Dr. Michael WaldSupervisor at his private practice in Katona New York, Westchester, to individualize the type of fasting. Nutritional supports including vitamins, minerals, herbs, vital nutrients, and the diet and other factors should all be based upon a persons fasting needs an overall health. No two people are alike and should not fast the same way. Also, fasting efforts often need to be repeated over a period of time for benefits to be seen.

Ask The Blood Detective - High Blood Sugar is Dangerous

Most people know that high blood sugar is dangerous. Diabetes increases risk of dying of heart attack and stroke.

Join Dr. Michael Wald, the Blood Detective, as he reviews over 25 non-sugar ways of increasing and decreasing your blood sugar. Dr. Wald asserts that most individuals focus disproportionately on the role that sugar in the diet may play towards either increasing or decreasing blood sugar when in fact there are far more ways that blood sugar levels are disturbed that have nothing to do with sugar. Learn how toxins, inflammation, chronic pain and disease and other body disturbances causes wild blood sugar fluctuations.
