If you’ve been reading my blogs lately, you’ll know that lifespan isn’t quite as important as healthspan. Healthspan, is the amount of our lives that we spend being healthy and fully functional. We want our healthspan to match our lifespan. So, what is this move we can do to improve our healthspan?
For over a year now, I have been learning about this. You’ve probably seen them on people’s arms. They hardly weigh anything. They connect to your phone. Diabetics use them. And now you can too.
I've been eager to make this for quite a while. I had learned about it from a podcast a couple of months ago. So I tried it yesterday with some slight alterations. I actually had a frog this morning because I didn't have time for my usual breakfast. And I realized at 11am I hadn't even thought about food.
Symptoms that often go with low energy:
difficult weight loss
cold hands and feet
(The list could go on and on and on…)
If you have any of these symptoms, you are probably suffering from Cellular inflammation.
For me it started in middle school. It was awful. It could last for months on end. And I had no idea that I was just making it worse. It is so common that it is likely that either you or someone in your family has it. And there is such a simple solution, but almost no one knows about it.
A friend of mine told me about this new book about a month ago. It was by a neurologist I have great respect for, David Perlmutter. I have heard him speak in person several times and basically trust anything he has to say. I nearly fell off my chair when I read some of the things he was saying. There was a new marker - using an old test - that could reveal information that could help me help my patients even more. I got so excited, I started testing all my current patients for it.
All of these conditions have this marker in common:
The average thyroid gland weighs about as much as a tablespoon of almond butter. But the thyroid gland, unlike almond butter, has an almost infinite impact on the way your body functions.
Every single cell in your body has thyroid receptors. If you don’t have enough thyroid hormone, there are things in your body that just won’t work. Like an unplugged toaster, it’s not going to work no matter what you do. It will only work if you plug it in - just like your cells, they will only work if they’ve got some thyroid hormones plugged in.
For me, energy is the currency of life. I have spent too many years after having kids struggling to get through the day. My number one goal everyday is to have amazing energy. One of the ways I do that, is to choose a breakfast that will set me up for success.
I want to thank one of my patients for this recipe, you know who you are!! Although I did not get it quite right, the addition of a second egg makes the cakes stick together quite well. The original recipe only had one egg. I also learned from this patient that pink salmon is called dog salmon. Meaning, in Alaska, they feed it to dogs! No wonder I've never liked canned salmon. So! I now buy sockeye salmon from Vital Choice. And I love it! And I would have added a photo, but I keep forgetting to take one!
