Substitutions for Refined Carbs to Reduce Type 2 Diabetes Risk
No Place for Refined Carbs in Our Diet Anymore.
Both genetics and lifestyle contribute to type 2 diabetes (T2D), a condition of elevated circulating glucose induced by a collection of metabolic defects including peripheral insulin resistance, elevated hepatic glucose output, and impaired pancreatic insulin secretion.

It is increasingly recognized that lifestyle interventions aimed at encouraging physical activity and reducing body weight can improve insulin sensitivity. Nutritional modifications are a must. 

A study from this month's The Journal of Nutrition states that diets rich in refined dietary carbohydrate (particularly those with a high glycemic index and glycemic load) elevates T2D risk. How do we combat this? Replace refined carbs with low-glycemic index/load carbohydrates, soluble and insoluble fibers, resistant starch, healthy fat sources, and lean sources of protein.

Steve: A complete list of high glycemic index/load carbs can be found in our Blood Sugar Balance Action Plan, free to NCI Well Connect subscribers or at our website for purchase.

Why Is Yawning Contagious?
 
Far Infrared Sauna Therapy
One way to thaw out from the deep freeze is to experience Far Infrared Sauna Therapy. We have had one in our office for several years and it does not disappoint.

 

Aside from the fact that you are taking one hour out of your busy lives to relax, Far Infrared Therapy offers numerous therapeutic benefits, most importantly enhanced detoxification. Many clients use it to relieve painful joints, rev up metabolism, and remove buildup of heavy metals.
