Week 11 has put the team almost over another big hurdle – they are only 1.5 pounds away from 150 lost! They all seem to be working very hard in these final weeks of the challenge to meet their goals and it is showing on the scale, with one person losing three pounds just this week.

While watching the numbers creep down on the scale is a great feeling, something else is happening around here that is even better. There has been an increase in camaraderie among the team. Everyone is so supportive and are all going out of their way to share their excitement. And it’s not just those who are participating, everyone is sharing in their successes. Walking down the hall you’ll hear “I can’t believe how great so & so looks” or “So & so is really making progress, you can really tell!”

Support of friends and family is one of the key components in a successful weight loss program and we are lucky to have the support of our work family during this challenge.

Sleep Support – Our Customer’s Favorites

Regular and restful sleep is one of the cornerstones of good health. A good night’s sleep is more than restorative and refreshing. It’s as necessary as food and water for basic survival. Persistent sleep deficit can have adverse and debilitating effects on health. Chronic sleep loss can weaken your immune system, impair cognitive function and diminish physical performance. Sleep loss can interfere with hormone production and neurotransmitter release, which can result in psychological damage, and can negatively affect mood, appetite and behavior. Many of us suffer from chronic or partial sleep deprivation, as sleep is one of the things we often scrimp on while going about our sometimes overly busy and stressful lives.

While we rationalize that we can somehow catch up on missed hours of sleep, scientists say that’s a fallacy. Once the opportunity to get a good night’s sleep is gone, the sleep debt is difficult if not impossible to repay. Over time, this may result in increasingly hampered bodily function and slowed ability to concentrate. An occasional restless night is normal and almost unavoidable and may result in a frustrating and uncomfortable following day. The cumulative effect of consecutive nights of poor sleep or chronic insomnia can leave you feeling miserable and moody, unable to focus and perform and can increase your risk of accidental injury. It can also put you at risk for developing serious medical conditions including obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

Strategies abound for those who wish to improve their sleeping habits and optimize their sleep, and can include:

  • Create a relaxing sanctuary for sleeping and appropriate bedroom activities only.
  • Establish a calming bedtime routine to help you unwind before bed.
  • Keep your sleep hours consistent seven days a week.
  • Maintain a comfortable, quiet and tranquil bedroom atmosphere.
  • Keep the temperature at an optimal 60° – 68°.
  • Dim the lights to encourage the release of sleep hormones and induce the body to settle down in preparation for rest.
  • Turn off or shut down electronics at least an hour before bed. Artificial light exposure disrupts the body’s natural circadian rhythm and reduces the release of the brain’s sleep regulating chemicals.

The Busy Little Pancreas

Pancreas1JacquieIconBy Jacquie Eubanks

If someone asked you about pancreatic function, would you know how to answer? While many of us may know about the functions of the heart, lungs, liver and adrenal glands, most might admit they don’t know much about the pancreas. Controlled by both the endocrine system and the autonomic nervous system, this essential small gland and its vital functions often go unnoticed unless or until something goes wrong. There’s much to be said about maintaining healthy pancreatic function, as the pancreas is both an endocrine gland and an exocrine gland with very important digestive and hormone producing roles. Maintaining a healthy balanced diet, avoiding smoking and limiting alcohol consumption can all facilitate pancreatic health.

In its role as an exocrine gland, the pancreas produces enzymes and hormones as part of the digestive system. These digestive juices are secreted into the small intestine to further break down food after it has left the stomach. A healthy pancreas will produce about 1 liter of enzymes daily, as aiding effective digestion constitutes the majority of pancreatic function. In order to prevent the pancreas from digesting itself, enzymes are not activated until they reach the intestines. These key pancreatic digestive enzymes include:

  • Trypsin and chymotrypsin to break down proteins into amino acids, which are then absorbed by the intestines.
  • Amylase to break down carbohydrates and starches into smaller sugars such as glucose, allowing intestinal absorption.
  • Lipase to break down fats into fatty acids, enabling intestinal absorption.

As part of the endocrine system, the pancreas produces and secretes the hormones insulin and glucagon, which work together to regulate, maintain and carefully monitor blood glucose homeostasis. As glucose feeds the cells, a steady supply of glucose is necessary but must be contained within certain limits. These two hormones help to keep blood glucose levels stable.

  • When blood sugar levels are too low, glucagon stimulates liver cells to release glucose, a readily available form of energy necessary for cellular function. Secretion of glucagon raises the level of glucose in the bloodstream.
  • When blood levels of glucose are too high, the release of glucagon ceases and insulin is released. Insulin aids the absorption of glucose into the cells and brings blood sugar levels down.  

When something goes wrong with the function of the pancreas, the solution may be as simple as restricting sugary foods, simple carbohydrates, alcohol and greasy foods, or aiding digestion with a digestive enzyme supplement. The worst outcomes may be life threatening diseases such as pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer. Acute or chronic pancreatitis, an inflammation of the organ, is generally the result of long term alcohol abuse, which can damage or lead to scarring of the pancreas. Gallstones, certain medications and severe viral or bacterial infections can also cause pancreatitis.

The highest risk factors for pancreatic cancer are cigarette smoking and heavy alcohol use. Because of its location in the body, pancreatic cancer is often difficult to diagnose in early stages. Unfortunately, pancreatic cancer is generally fast growing and quick to metastasize. While pancreatic cancer is still relatively rare in comparison to other cancers, it’s the fourth most frequent cause of cancer death in the U.S. after lung, colon and breast cancers.

To reduce your risk of pancreatic disorders adopt, healthy lifestyles such as quitting smoking, limiting alcohol consumption, following a healthy diet, maintaining a healthy body weight and getting regular exercise.  

Here are some excellent choices for pancreatic support:

WEEK 10: Healthy Weight Challenge

ChallengeJenniferIconBy Jennifer Bement
Social Media Manager
 

The team is moving into the homestretch now, having collectively lost nearly 140 lbs! Nurse Jacquie is finding that many of the suggestions she has made, have now become second nature to the team. Everyone is making healthier choices when it comes to food, an important habit to form going into the holiday season where temptation will be around every corner, but hopefully not in the lunchroom.

Some staffers who were not fans of exercise are now gung-ho to get to the gym or head out for a brisk walk. We are headquartered in Florida, so even early in the morning it has been hot and humid, but there is a change on the air and we’ll be ushering in Fall soon, so going out for that walk will be even more refreshing.

With just a couple of weeks left in the challenge, the participants are now pushing hard to reach their goals. Actually, six of them already have surpassed the goal they set for themselves and are working on maintaining and even shooting for a higher amount lost. Keep up the good work team!

Stay Healthy: Immune Supporting Tips

immumne2JacquieIconBy Jacquie Eubanks
BSN, RN
 

It’s the beginning of flu season and the thought of that looming threat may make some of us a little uneasy. Fortunately, most of us who may get the illness will not develop complications and will recover with rest, proper nutrition, adequate hydration and OTC medications. For some, an antiviral prescription medication may be recommended, which can be effective at reducing the severity of the illness when taken as soon as possible after symptoms develop.

Many factors contribute to your risk of coming down with the flu, including age, as infants, children and the elderly are more vulnerable. Others at high risk of hospitalization from complications of the flu include those with chronic medical conditions or compromised immune systems, those under chronic stress, the severely obese and pregnant women.

Do you ever wonder why some will come down with flu symptoms while others appear to be able to resist the bugs that cause the illness? Are you one of those people who seem to catch every viral infection that makes the rounds in the office or at school? Perhaps your immune system could use some attention. Following are some reasons why your immune system may be functioning at less than optimal levels:

Poor diet – Malnutrition impairs immune function. Diets high in sugar, fast food and processed foods don’t provide the rich nutrients your immune system needs to build its army of white blood cells, which fight infections and pathogens. Surprised? Don’t be, as it’s the diets high in vegetables, fruits, nuts, protein and healthy fats that promote overall health and provide the nutrients the immune system requires for optimal function.

Stressful lifestyle – Chronic stress puts the immune system under duress, leaving the body more vulnerable to illness. Scientific data shows that the negative effects of stress on the immune system have implications for health, including reduced antibody production and decreased lymphocyte proliferation. You can cut your chances of succumbing to a cold or the flu by mindfully reducing stress. Studies show that people who meditate have 50% reduced risk of illness, likely because meditation reduces the physical effects of stress that weaken the immune system. Massage on a regular basis has also been shown to produce positive changes in immune function.

Lack of sleep – Sleep deprivation raises the risks of illness by activating the stress response, elevating inflammatory chemicals and suppressing immune function. Sleep loss appears to cause changes to the system that activates our immune defense by decreasing the production of infection fighting antibodies and cytokines, chemical messengers that regulate the response of the immune system. Adequate sleep of 7 -8 hours a night for adults and up to 10 hours for children supports immune function by enhancing the body’s ability to form an initial response to invading pathogens.

Inactivity – Just as a weakened immune system generally accompanies a sedentary lifestyle, physical fitness is associated with healthy immune function. The human body was not designed for an inactive lifestyle, as studies show a sedentary lifestyle disrupts normal body functions that are necessary to maintain good health. Physical inactivity increases susceptibility to viral infections, while regular moderate exercise enhances natural immunity. It would appear that getting active is a good prescription for getting and staying healthy. During exercise, antibodies and white blood cells circulate more rapidly throughout the body, increasing the chances of detecting illnesses earlier.

Vitamin D deficiency - Scientists have found that vitamin D is crucial to immune defenses. However, vitamin D deficiency has seen a dramatic increase among children, teens and adults in the U.S., leading to compromised immune function and inflammation. Studies indicate that the effects of vitamin D deficiency include an elevated risk of developing chronic disease and immune system abnormalities, which can result in infections and autoimmune disease. Without sufficient vitamin D, killer T cells, which fight infections, remain dormant and don’t complete the necessary activation process needed to seek out and destroy pathogens. Supplementation, fortified foods and natural sunshine exposure for at least 15 minutes, 2 – 3 times a week will help to support adequate blood levels of vitamin D.  

Gastrointestinal health – Digestive health directly impacts your immune health, as your GI system is the headquarters for your immune system. A poorly functioning digestive system negatively influences the health of your immune and nervous systems and impacts hormonal health as well. Gastrointestinal immune cells secrete lymphocytes, which attack harmful pathogens. Beneficial intestinal microflora help prevent the overgrowth of harmful microbes, enhance the function of natural killer T cells and form a barrier to prevent germs or pathogens from being absorbed into the bloodstream. Supplements such as pre- and probiotics provide live strains of beneficial bacteria that offer significant support for optimal digestive and immune function.  

In addition to following these healthy tips, here are some great supplement choices for immune support:

Neurotransmitters Wide Ranging Influence

Neurotransmitters Wide Ranging InfluenceJacquieIconBy Jacquie Eubanks
BSN, RN
 

Neurotransmitters communicate neurologic information to other cells throughout the brain and the body. These specialized brain messenger biochemical substances released by nerve cells, or neurons, shape everyday life and functioning. Human behavior and emotions are all modulated by neurotransmitters. The central nervous system manages and orchestrates thousands of signals every second, twenty-four hours a day. The more than 60 identified neurotransmitters affect sleep, mood and behavior, motor coordination and physiological activities such as heart beat, respiration, appetite and digestion. Many factors can contribute to suboptimal neurotransmitter levels including cortisol and hormonal imbalance, chronic stress, poor diet, inactivity, neurotoxins, pharmaceutical and recreational drugs and alcohol. In fact, many medications work by altering or blocking neurotransmissions.

Neurotransmitters are categorized as “excitatory,” which stimulate the brain, and “inhibitory” which calm the brain and create balanced moods. Excitatory neurotransmitters increase the chances that a neuron will fire an action potential, a process that causes a rapid increase in the positive charge of a nerve fiber, basically resulting in an electrical impulse. Inhibitory neurotransmitters decrease the likelihood for an action potential.  

The Excitatory Neurotransmitters include:

Dopamine – As what has become known as the reward motivator, the chemical dopamine controls the brain’s reward and pleasure centers and, as such, plays a complex role in dependencies. Dopamine helps us to focus and stay on task and is involved in many important functions including motivation, decision making, attention, cognition, movement, memory, sleep and emotional responses. A deficit of dopamine may trigger poor impulse control and is a contributing factor in Parkinson’s disease, as dopamine is involved in controlling fine muscle movements

Norepinephrine - Considered both a neurotransmitter and a stress hormone, norepinephrine is released in response to a stressful situation, commonly referred to as the “fight or flight” response. When facing a potentially perilous or unsafe situation, norepinephrine helps the body function as efficiently as possible by increasing heart rate, respiration, blood pressure and blood sugar, and by shutting down metabolic processes like digestion or insulin release. Within the brain, norepinephrine is believed to be involved in functions such as attention, alertness, focus and arousal. Low levels of norepinephrine are associated with sleep problems, low energy and decreased ability to focus.

Epinephrine – Also known as adrenaline, epinephrine, as a precursor to norepinephrine, provides immediate strength and single focused concentration to prepare the body for swift action or strenuous activity.   As a powerful vasopressor, epinephrine overrides inhibitory neurotransmitters and increases cardiac output, blood pressure and blood flow in response to strong emotions such as fear or anger. Chronic stress and insomnia can deplete levels of epinephrine, which can result in low energy levels, depression and muscle weakness.

Glutamate – Considered to be the main excitatory neurotransmitter, glutamate works in conjunction with GABA and is essential to memory, learning, alertness and wakefulness. Glutamate is synthesized by the body and is necessary for brain function and metabolism. An overabundance of glutamate is associated with disorders such as Alzheimer’s, ALS, Huntington’s, MS and many others. A lack of glutamate results in decreased mental focus and inability to synthesize GABA. Adequate GABA is necessary to keep glutamate and the constant barrage of stimuli in balance.

Acetylcholine – A widely distributed excitatory neurotransmitter, acetylcholine triggers muscle contraction and stimulates hormone secretion. It plays a role in wakefulness, attentiveness, energy conservation, anger, aggression and sexuality. Lack of acetylcholine is associated with Alzheimer’s disease, manic behavior and poor recent memory.

The Inhibitory Neurotransmitters include:

GABA – As a critical and primary neurotransmitter, GABA’s natural function is to reduce nerve excitation and stimulation, and lessen aggression, fear and anxiety. Synthesized in the brain, GABA is widely distributed among brain neurons and contributes to motor control, vision and neurological development. Stress tolerance, sleep patterns, behavioral disorders and mood all improve with adequate levels of GABA. Stress management and nutritional support for GABA production can have a huge positive influence on daily life. Nutritional support for GABA production can include glycine, magnesium and L-theanine.

Serotonin – Synthesized from the amino acid tryptophan, serotonin plays an important role in a wide range of brain functions, including sleep regulation, body temperature, hormonal activity and pain perception. As an inhibitory neurotransmitter, serotonin does not stimulate the brain but helps to balance an over-release of excitatory neurotransmitters, reducing aggression and stabilizing mood. Depression, impulsive behavior, sleep disturbance and irritability is associated with imbalances in serotonin.

The following products developed by NeuroScience, Inc. specifically target the spectrum of neurotransmitter imbalances:

Balance D®
 
Balance D® – This amino acid formula provides nutrient dense sustenance for dopamine synthesis to bolster support for memory function, muscle control and impulsive behaviors.
 
 
 
ExcitaPlus®
 
ExcitaPlus® – This formula contains an L-tyrosine and proprietary herbal extract blend plus vitamins and minerals in support of dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine production.
 
 
 
GABA Trex (Grape Flavor)
 
GABA Trex – These easy to take grape flavored, rapid delivery chewables provide L-theanine, delivering calming relief for high glutamate levels. GABA Trex addresses overstimulation and improves focus while reducing the negative effects of stress.
 
 
 NorLox (Formerly Inflam B)
 
 
NorLox - This product supports a healthy immune response and provides support for serotonin levels, resulting in a calming effect.

WEEK 9: 90-Day Healthy Weight Challenge

137JenniferIconBy Jennifer Bement
Social Media Manager
 

The team continues on in their effort to drop down to a healthy weight and now have lost a total of 137 lbs! We have talked about the supplements they are taking and how they fit into a healthy lifestyle, so now we’re going to share a bit about the diet guidelines they are following.

While each participant has been given unique, detailed instruction from Nurse Jacquie, they all are following roughly the same plan – an anti-inflammatory eating plan. Chronic inflammation has been linked to a number of degenerative and lifestyle-caused diseases, including cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and certain cancers. Changing to an anti-inflammatory diet can have an impact on overall health, that in turn can lead to a more active lifestyle and weight loss.

The Basics of an Anti-Inflammatory Diet:

  • Lots of fruits and vegetables in a wide range of colors
  • Whole grains like brown rice and quinoa
  • Beans for fiber
  • Healthy fats such as olive, canola, and sunflower oils
  • Seafood – rich in omega-3s
  • Spices and herbs – many spices contain naturally anti-inflammatory properties
  • Seeds and nuts – contain protein and healthy fats
  • Water, lots of it
  • Avoid processed foods, excess sugar, and hydrogenated oils

By following this plan, the team members are learning to make healthier choices and are totally shifting the way they look at food. Since the challenge is for 90 days, it gives the team a chance to really cement these healthy habits into their lifestyle, so that it is not so much about losing the weight, but leading a healthy life.
