BULIMIC BRAINS RESPOND DIFFERENTLY TO FOOD CUES FOLLOWING STRESSFUL EVENTS

According to a new study published in the Journal of Abnormal Psychology, the brains of women with the eating disorder Bulimia Nervosa respond differently to images of sugary and high-fat foods following a stressful situation than those without the disorder. Brain scans reveal bulimic women have decreased blood flow to the precuneus, an area of the brain associated with self-criticism, when presented with images of food following a stressful math test. The findings provide support to current theories that binge eating may provide an alternative focus to negative self-reflections. READ MORE…

Root causes of chronic illness

During the last 20 years, your body is exposed to inflammation such as over consumption of sugar, stress and trauma, gut bacteria/parasites/fungus/virus, lack of sleep and other chronic disease which can be prevented before it becomes Type 2 diabetes, depression, hypertension and even cancer.

  1. As we age , we are 10k times more prone to attacks from parasites and cancer.
  2. If we don’t get our 8 hour night time sleep, we are slowly breaking down the barriers in our cell mucosa making it possible for unhealthy microbes to travel to other sites from liver to blood and then brain.
  3. It takes cancer to overpower our cells at least 20 years.
  4. Know signs, detox your body starting with your liver and use whole foods such as apples with 100 million healthy bacteria to help fight invading pathogens. Do avoid these environmental toxins feeding on weakened cells invaded by parasites, fungus and virus.
