Future Doc: Food for Thought

Americans consume 49% of global pharmaceutical production.

America spends nearly double the amount (about $10k per capita) on health care than other similar populations.

Americans rank 37th out of 40 nations in their overall quality of health. West Virginians are the most highly medicated in America.

Every 30 seconds someone dies of cardiovascular disease in America.

Cardiovascular disease kills more than all cancers combined.

The brain is 75% cholesterol.

Statins increase the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

With the right food, medicine is not necessary. With the wrong food, medicine is of no use.

Body and brain inflammation activate the Adrenal Stress response.

Chronic unresolving inflammation results from low-grade infections, inflammatory diets, food sensitivities, blood sugar extremes, heavy metal, and chemical toxicity, and other oxidative stressors like smoking.

Chronic stress further weakens the immune system.

Chronic stress leads to Adrenal fatigue and exhaustion.

Chronic, persistent inflammation and adrenal dysfunction leads to other hormonal imbalances and drives the onset of cardiovascular disease and brain deterioration.

How you think affects how you feel and how you feel affects how you think.

The most common problem found in functional medicine is Adrenal fatigue.
