Sleep and sugar and optimum health

At PWR Personal Training we continue to study the scientific research surrounding optimum health. You can do it too, but probably it is best to dig as deep as you can into the subjects of nutrition, physical fitness and lifestyle.
It is important to be sceptical of websites that offer sound science to back up their headlines. Scepticism is required until you discover the producer of the website. Often what appears to be objective science is actually heavily loaded in favour of the product or service the website is offering further down the scroller. At first the presentation of the science is gratefully received, but gradually one can start to sense an overwhelming bias towards the product. Often this is a magical weight loss product or an obscure new supplement that is saving lives etc.
  • On balance, a healthy lifestyle is simply just that: a good balance.
Every night the body works while you sleep, to reset itself. The organs and systems deal with the toxins produced and eaten by your body during the day. Despite it doing its best, this normal bodily process is directly affected by our lifestyle, our diet and our level of exercise. If our lifestyle and choices overwhelm the system, this overnight bodily reset can misfire.
I research diet books and strategies all the time. The best diet plan I have found after years of research, is Patrick Holfords "Low GI (or GL) Diet" book and others by this expert nutritional scientist. Holford looks at food from a scientific and pragmatic stance, and produces sound, sensible advice, backed up by his own in depth studies. I recommend  "The Holford Low Gl Diet" by Patrick Holford (£1.01 online).

Adrenal Burnout, A detailed study.

Cited from a web article by Dr. L.Wilson.
This article examines this extremely common syndrome – its causes, symptoms and the process of recovery of vibrant health with a nutritional balancing program.
Note: In nutritional balancing science, one never focuses on just one organ or gland. The reason is that the body works mainly as one whole system, not as a collection of organs and glands.This article focuses on the adrenal glands because of their central role in the body. However, in reality a corrective program for the adrenals must address all aspects of body chemistry, diet, lifestyle and detoxification – not just the adrenal glands.
