“Chances are your hands are on, or very near, a keyboard right now.

Or mouse, or touch-screen.

There is a book that looks at making our use of computers and other instruments healthier: “Hands on a Keyboard: A Guide for Musicians and Computer Users” Read my son Jonathan Galland’s blog to learn more: Hands on a Keyboard (http://pilladvised.com/2011/10/hands-on-a-keyboard/)

A fascinating study from the Mayo Clinic shows combining using a computer, or doing other mentally stimulating activities, along with exercise can reduce the risk of having memory loss.

“This is the right approach here, cutting down on the fat, sugar and processed foods that lead to disease, and keeping the fresh flavors of summer. Its all about nutrient density, which means you maximize the flavor and nutrition, while losing the stuff that will weight you down.

Two favorites of mine are perfect for this season, delicious blueberries and strawberries.

Did you know that there is research that says blueberries could help fight aging, combat disease, lower blood pressure, protect the heart and brain, and even increase your memory? Learn more in my blog Blueberry Benefits (http://pilladvised.com/2011/06/blueberry-benefits-increase-your-memory/)

June is peak strawberry season, so this is getting to the perfect time to eat strawberries and benefit from strawberry nutrition. Get more in my blog: Strawberry Benefits: Strawberry Nutrition Facts (http://pilladvised.com/2011/06/strawberry-benefits-strawberry-nutrition-facts/)”
Sleep Works With Our Genes to Keep Weight in Check

Sleep Works With Our Genes to Keep Weight in Check

“While many still think that losing weight is simply about willpower, eating less and exercising more, the latest research on obesity indicates the problem is far more complex, involving many factors.

One key area of obesity research focuses on how the hormone leptin influences the body’s ability to shed excess pounds, which I explain in detail in my book The Fat Resistance Diet.

According to the latest research leptin plays an important role in appetite control, metabolism and weight loss. It is your body’s natural weight control mechanism.

For an example of what can impact leptin, research done at the Laval University in Quebec found that 7-8 hours of sleep each night, on average, was associated with relatively higher levels of leptin. In contrast, getting less sleep meant lower levels of leptin and higher body mass index in the study.

“Thank you Dr. Galland for your comments. It complements the reporting of this article nicely. I agree that obesity is a complex issue, though I never had any idea that sleep could be this powerful a factor.”

“High-fructose corn syrup, the primary sweetener of the best-selling sodas, has been studied for its adverse impacts on the body and brain. Just to be clear, sugar causes a lot of trouble–raising inflammation and contributing to insulin resistance, diabetes and obesity.

Yet according to some research, high-fructose corn syrup is even worse.

However this hasn’t stopped the aggressive marketing efforts. Learn more in this article by my colleague By Dr. Alan R. Gaby High-Fructose Corn Syrup Propaganda (http://pilladvised.com/2011/09/high-fructose-corn-syrup-propaganda/)

A new study from University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) shows how a diet with high-fructose corn syrup can interfere with the ability to think clearly and remember.

“It is good to see you introducing this here today. How drugs can deplete nutrients is an important topic, and there has been a lot of published research in this area that people should know about.

In addition, drugs and supplements can interact.

Vitamins or other dietary supplements can reduce the effects of drugs, causing unintended consequences. Or they can help, by working in harmony with them to enhance care or reduce the side effects of drugs.

“Great to see you here covering such an important topic in integrated medicine. The issue of nutrient depletion is something that deserves much more attention. I have just introduced my free online database that allows users to enter a list of medications and see how nutrients can get depleted. It is available at my website:

“Have you got any literature about what happens to Glutathione levels when a person is given Tylenol and Motrin (or other fever-reducer) for a low-grade fever? Or do you have any literature about what happens to Glutathione levels when a baby or toddler gets vaccines?

If you do, thanks for sharing.”
