The Ketogenic Diet vs the Modified Ketogenic Diet

The ketogenic diet seems to be one of the most popular topics to reach the current diet world. The ketogenic diet, or the keto diet, is characterized as a high fat, low carb dietary regimen. With claims that you can eat all the fat you want while not feeling hungry and considering its belief to reduce your blood sugar when you have type 2 diabetes as well as help improve overall performance, the ketogenic diet appears to be the ideal nutritional standard of the modern world. However, is the ketogenic diet right for everyone? Below, we will discuss what the ketogenic diet is and describe the modified ketogenic diet, their benefits and risks. What is the Ketogenic Diet? The "classic" ketogenic diet was created in 1923 by Dr. Russell Wilder for the treatment of epilepsy. The keto diet is based on the principle that by decreasing the intake of carbohydrates, the human body's main supply of energy, it is possible to induce the cells to burn fat for fuel, maximizing we

How The Quality Of Sleep Affects Your Overall Health | El Paso, TX.

Anatomy 101 - The Cervical Spine: What You Need To Know | El Paso TX.

Neck pain is one of the most common sources of pain and chronic pain worldwide. According to the International Association for the Study of Pain , each year, around 30% to 50% of the general population experiences neck pain and approximately 15% will, at some point in their lives, have chronic neck pain. Women seem to experience it more often than men, and it is most prevalent at around middle age. Neck pain can be debilitating, impacting a person home life as well as their work performance. It can also trigger migraines and limit the range of motion. Understanding the cervical spine is integral in understanding how to manage pain in that area. What is the Cervical Spine? Seven vertebrae make up the cervical spine: C1 through C7. They protect the spinal cord and are part of the system that makes up the neck. C1 is located at the base of the skull and C7 sits at the beginning of the thoracic spine. While C1 is the smallest vertebrae, each subsequent one is slightly larger as you

The Role Of Nrf2 Activation

Many current research studies on cancer have allowed health professionals to understand the way the body detoxes. By analyzing upregulated genes in tumorous cells, researchers discovered the nuclear erythroid 2-related factor 2 signaling pathway , best known as Nrf2. NRF2 is an important transcription factor which activates the human body's protective antioxidant mechanisms in order to regulate oxidation from both external and internal factors to prevent increased levels of oxidative stress. Principles of Nrf2 NRF2 is essential towards maintaining overall health and wellness because it serves the primary purpose of regulating how we manage everything we're exposed to on a daily basis and not become sick. NRF2 activation plays a role in the phase II detoxification system. Phase II detoxification takes lipophilic, or fat soluble, free radicals and converts them into hydrophilic, or water soluble, substances for excretion while inactivating exceptionally reactive metaboli

Oxidative stress is a major contributor in the development of a variety of health issues, including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, accelerated aging and neurodegeneration. Antioxidant rich foods, herbs and supplements can be utilized to protect the human body from high levels of oxidative stress. Recent research studies have demonstrated that the Nrf2 gene pathway can help amplify the effects of antioxidants. The benefits of Nrf2 are described below. Protects the Body Against Toxins NRF2 is an intrinsic substance which can protect the cells from harmful, internal and external compounds. NRF2 may help enrich the human body's reaction to drugs/medications and toxins, improving the production of proteins that help eliminate compounds from the cell, known as multidrug resistance-associated proteins, or MRPs. By way of instance, NRF2 is triggered upon cigarette smoke inhalation to allow the lungs to detox.
