Excitotoxins


If you see these run!

Old habits are hard to break. It most definitely is difficult giving up something you know. It might be a habit that is not serving you anymore or something that can be holding you back to being your best self.  But if you knew it was holding you back from losing weight would you change your mind?   Studies show it is virtually impossible to lose weight when ingesting excitotoxins.  These include Aspartame, MSG and Fluoride.

The brainstem (midbrain, pons, medulla) are structures that regulate our “survival functions,” such as respiration, heart rate, and blood pressure in response to all the information they receive from multiple connections to the brain and spinal cord. Excitotoxins can damage the brain. 

Fast food is on the rise~ It’s cheap, seems convenient, and to taste buds that don’t know the joys of eating whole, nourishing foods, it tastes great. Designed like crack to keep you addicted. There is even a science that junk food companies know exactly what keeps you craving for more.  It may be in that HUGH bag of potato chips while you watch TV.

If you eat foods with MSG you disrupt your nervous system, digestive system, metabolism and your skin health.  MSG may cause free radical damage and degenerative changes were observed.  

Aspartame is also very addictive, and marketed as diet sugar. It actually causes us to eat more. If you truly want to lose weigh remove all sugar-free products with aspartame from your diet.  Remember – Diet foods and drinks aren’t meant for consumption.

Some of us experience the effects of toxic poisoning sooner than others; but it is abundantly clear that most illness and disease in people and pets is triggered by toxins in the food, air, water and the environment. Since we are all choosing to breathe, eat and drink, we are exposed to a significant array of neurotoxins and carcinogens daily. How can we limit our toxic exposure?  Eating a diet of unprocessed foods is a sound plan for anyone wanting to feel and be healthier.
