Alzheimer's Disease: A Lifestyle Disease - Part 2 | 5 Lifestyle Changes to Help Prevent Alzheimer's

 

What we can do to prevent Alzheimer’s Disease

You will either end up with Alzheimer’s Disease or care for someone who does.

How can we change the statistics about Alzheimer’s?

Today’s discussion is geared toward the first line of defense against Alzheimer’s. Or the things we can implement immediately to help prevent it.

Amyloid Plaques start accumulating at the age of 40.  With no signs of impairment.  It takes 15 to 20 years to start seeing or feeling the effects of this plague build up.

Inflammation and cellular destruction start setting in clearing away synapsis in our brain.  Mid-stage Alzheimer’s there is massive inflammation and cell death.

Something to make note of:

There is a difference between not paying attention to something vs. an abnormality with the behavior. Forgetfulness is not a sign of Alzheimer’s. It is situational.  So you forgot where you put your phone and then you find it in the refrigerator....

feast well Oct 16, 2019

    Pesto & Chips rectangular  

Pesto Pasta is one of our family's favorite meals.  It is a go to when we are entertaining and it is one of those comfort meals my kids say makes them feel loved and cozy at home.

I am excited to share this recipe with you.

I get my ingredients from Trader Joe's but these are pretty everyday ingredients.  So, if you do not have a Trader Joe's near you then just find your "go-to's" from your local store. Ingredients: 1 package fresh organic basil  (I cut off the stems) 1 handful pine nuts 1 handful of parmesan cheese 2 cloves fresh garlic, minced 2 tablespoons avocado oil 1 tsp kosher sea salt Pesto Ingredients Layer all ingredients listed above in your food processor in the order listed.  Blend to a consistency of your liking.  We tend to like ours a little on the chunky side.  You can also add to the amounts listed above...I literally wing mine each time I make it. We use this on top of pasta, as a condiment for sandwiches and also as a...

Pumpkin Spice Break Fast Shake

break fast shake Sep 03, 2019
I don't know about you...but Pumpkin season is my favorite season.  The only problem with pumpkin season for me is the quality of pumpkin foods that are available. Most are full of ingredients I just won't put into my body.

That is why adding in a pumpkin spice flavored break fast shake is my favorite this time of the year. 

This limited-edition Pumpkin Spice Shakeology will be available for purchase at 11 am PST, September 3rd in the U.S. and Canada.*

This flavor will sell out quickly.  So if you are like me, and love your Pumpkin anything and everything this time of the year, then grab a box or two before they sell out. 

Limited Time Offer Order US: Pumpkin Spice Shakeology    

Limited Time Offer Canada:   Pumpkin Spice Shakeology     


Pumpkin Spice Shakeology sold out in record time last year. So don't hesitate.

Intermittent Fasting: Are You Changing Too Much Too Soon? | For Today’s Aging Woman

 

On this week's LIVE we discussed changing too much too soon when it comes to your fasting, feasting, and fitness. You know when we are listening to too many experts all at the same time. 

Most of the time we go into something new with all the right intentions. However, the reality can be quite different. Starting a new Intermittent Fasting Lifestyle can have you feeling like you need to do it all at once. 

When I started my journey 4 years ago, I tried to create an Intermittent Lifestyle while I was chasing all the experts too, and ended up changing what I was doing daily. This was a huge mistake. I was exhausted and frustrated.  When I realized I wasn't getting the results that I was looking for, I regrouped and just focused on fasting long and feasting well until I found my groove.  I even put off working out for an entire year until I knew I had the fasting and feasting part down.  That entire year of learning is now our 3 week Intermittent Fasting...

The Estrogen You Consume Daily

Video discussion starts at 1:04

LIVE Q&A Discussion starts at 25:48

During a recent YouTube and Facebook LIVE discussion, we focused on the Estrogen you might be consuming daily without even realizing it. 

We talked about two types of estrogen specifically:

  • Xenoestrogen ~ Estrogen in the form of chemicals
  • Phytoestrogen ~ Estrogen in the form of plants

Both mimic the action of estrogen in our cells and can alter hormonal activity.

The largest source of Xenoestrogens is from the byproducts of plastics and pesticides. 

  • dry cleaning
  • bleaching of feminine hygiene products
  • plastics - food storage containers, plastic bottles, plastic shower curtains

Problems caused by Xenoestrogen may include;

  • estrogen dominance
  • early onset puberty in both girls and boys
  • abnormal mammary gland tissues in men
  • hair loss, prostate problems, lowered libido, fatigue, impotency

These byproducts are difficult for the liver to process.  They end up  accumulating in our...
