We are fully aware of what we should and should not be eating In order to maintain optimum health but with todays busy life styles it has become ‘the norm’ to buy processed ready made meals and snack bars.
Our urge to seek out sugary foods is inbuilt from pre-historic times when food was eaten to survive. Berries and fruits were gathered and regarded as a premium food source for high energy and laying down fat stores. These days sugar and other similar refined sweeteners are so readily available and humans are consuming far too much with severe consequences to our health. Too much of the white stuff can lead to heart disease, cause memory problems, compromise kidney function leading to type 2 diabetes cause cirrhosis of the liver which is fat build up around the liver, sexual dis function as well as obesity which has become an epidemic. Lets not forget emotional eating which is another whole subject and dealt with very effectively with EMDR and hypnotherapy.
High levels of glucose in our blood streams causes stress on the heart and fructose (artificially sweetened food) lowers the levels of ‘good’ cholesterol causing increased risk of heart disease and stroke.
The overload of sugar in our systems pus a strain on our kidneys which could in turn lead to kidney failure. Too much of this highly addictive food could turn off the gene that regulates the level of testosterone and estrogen which are the two key hormones needed for sexual function. Obesity is linked to many diseases such as cancer osteoarthritis gout high blood pressure diabetes and of course heart disease and stroke.
So this food once so vital for survival has turned on us in modern times to become the enemy! Manufacturers hide it in our food in many forms of guise to make their products more appealing ensuring the consumer purchases their product over others.
