Food Diversity can Help Optimize Health

Nancy A. Palermo MD As we begin to learn more about the impact of our gut health, we realize we may only be as healthy as our gut. Our gut microbiome, the microorganisms including bacteria, fungi, viruses, and protozoa living in our digestive tract, appears to play a significant role in our metabolism, immune and neuroendocrine responses. Roles of the microbiome include nutrient and mineral absorption, synthesis of important enzymes, vitamins, and amino acids, and production of 70% of our neurotransmitters, like serotonin and melatonin. Our gut bacteria are also responsible for producing compounds called short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs). Science shows SCFAs are the drivers of gut health. They appear to improve the gut environment by helping commensal or good bacteria grow. SCFAs repair intestinal permeability, referred to as “leaky...

Under Pressure: The Hypertension Effect

Under Pressure While everyone has pressure in their lives, some are under far more severe pressure than others. High blood pressure (hypertension) is a condition in which the stress that your blood exerts on the interior of your blood vessels is significant enough to pose potential health risks over the long term. Hypertension can present in a variety of ways, and many have no symptomology at all. ​Hypertension Symptoms​ Headaches Shortness of breath Nosebleeds It is important to note that none of these can point directly to hypertension, but if the pressure is severe enough to have symptoms, it can mean that the pressure is elevated enough to pose significant risk.

It requires years of preparation.” Unknown February was Heart Health month. We all donned red and vowed to fight the number one killer of Americans. However, when you look at the statistics it seems one month is not enough to alter the magnitude of this disease. The numbers are dismal. In 2018 over 800,000 Americans died of heart disease or its related co-morbidities. That accounts for one in three of all deaths. Despite spending over 300 billion dollars to “fight and treat “the disease we have made no progress and it appears the numbers have only increased. In 2015,...
