So, you know by now that sugar is bad for you. You feel the need to change everything that does not serve a purpose in your diet, you gather…
Sugar may taste sweet but its health effects are the reason why it is very important for us to stop eating sugar. The excessive consumption of sugar unbalances the pH levels of the body, which makes it difficult for us to lose weight and maintain good health. The sugar and the acidity it creates provides an internal environment that is ripe for the overgrowth of yeasts, fungi, and dangerous bacteria.
In turn, these pathogens feed on sugar, multiply and expel the toxic waste that makes us feel even worse. Because these bad bacteria feed on sugar, our body begins to crave more sugar in the form of sweets, bread, pasta, and so on. We end up feeding these microorganisms and promote their growth and place more toxic acid in our body.
As this vicious circle continues, we not only feed these toxin-producing microorganisms, but we also ingest huge amounts of high-calorie foods, nutrient voids, and sugar-laden foods. Over time, excessive consumption of calories through sugar obviously affects our health and leads to an increase in weight.(more…)
I had my first panic attack at 15. I remember being in my room and having a feeling of apprehension and terror. The fear that something unimaginable was going to happen. I was cold, however, I was sweating. It was so intense that my heart rate started to rise, and everything around me was falling apart.
Later, I was having all kinds of gut problems. Anything that affects the brain might have a connection with the gut. It has been proven that poor gut bacteria can cause mood problems and even depression.
I was ashamed of talking to someone. When I turned sixteen, I was diagnosed with an ulcer. No medications brought relief to any of these things. So, I kept my struggle private. But it soon became overwhelming when I started university. The truth is I was dealing with so much stress that my body could no longer cope.
I turned to writing and dancing. That helped me cope with my recurrent panic attacks.
My amazing discovery.
At twenty-four, I was having these panic attacks almost every day. I decided to fight back with food, and I tried all kind of diets. I saw a gastroenterologist, a counselor, and a spiritual advisor. I repeatedly visited my family doctor and gynecologist who told me that it was all in my head.
It all had to do with my blood sugar that was up and down because of my adrenals. Therefore, my adrenals glands were tired. it’s a vicious circle.
The adrenals glands can affect your thyroid, hormone function, and even mood.
