How Blood Sugar Can Increase Your Body Temp to Disrupt Sleep

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Your blood glucose and insulin levels rise when you eat before bed, which may reduce your ability to sleep soundly by affecting thermoregulation and homeostasis
  • Diabetes and high blood sugar increase retention of heat during exercise and recovery; poor capacity to dissipate heat also reduces sleep quality
  • Quality sleep depends on lowering your core body temperature during the night, but does not affect your peripheral skin temperature
  • Refrain from eating for three to four hours before sleep and consider taking a shower before bed if you do eat late; sleep in a cool room with light covers, but not so cold you are shivering

Metabolic Inflexibility Is Key Risk Factor for COVID-19

Visitors:1 | Today\\\\\'s Visitors: 0 | Total Visitors This week: 1099

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • While SARS-CoV-2 is a rampant virus that can cause severe problems in vulnerable individuals, the real pandemic — the underlying cause that makes people susceptible to complications from the infection in the first place — is poor metabolic health
  • Aside from old age, obesity has been identified as one of the primary risk factors for being hospitalized with COVID-19 — doubling the risk of hospitalization in patients under the age of 60 in one study
  • One hypothesis for why obesity is worsening COVID-19 has to do with the fact that obesity causes chronic inflammation. Having more proinflammatory cytokines in circulation increases your risk of experiencing a cytokine storm
  • Insulin resistance is another top risk factor for COVID-19 that worsens outcomes and increases your risk of death
  • There are five primary parameters of metabolic health: waist circumference, insulin sensitivity, blood pressure, and triglyceride and HDL levels. Having three or more abnormal parameters is indicative of metabolic syndrome

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Based on data from 191,779 American patients, people with a vitamin D level of at least 55 ng/mL (138 nmol/L) had a 47% lower SARS-CoV-2 positivity rate compared to those with a level below 20 ng/mL (50 nmol/L)
  • Based on data from 7,807 Israelis, those with a vitamin D level above 30 ng/mL (75 nmol/L) had a 58% to 59% lower risk of testing positive for SARS-CoV-2 compared to those with a vitamin D level below 29 ng/mL (74 nmol/L)
  • Having a vitamin D level below 30 ng/mL also approximately doubles your risk of being hospitalized with COVID-19, Israeli researchers found
  • Spanish researchers found giving hospitalized COVID-19 patients supplemental calcifediol (a vitamin D3 analog) in addition to standard of care lowered ICU admissions from 50% to 2% and eliminated deaths
  • An August 2020 study found patients who had a vitamin D level below 12 ng/mL (30 nmol/L) had a 6.12 times higher risk of severe disease requiring invasive mechanical ventilation, and a 14.7 times higher risk of death compared to those with a vitamin D level above 12 ng/mL

Though we can assume mostly unconscious, it seems like most mainstream doctors have a death wish when it comes to their patients.

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Vitamin D optimization is likely the easiest, least expensive and most beneficial strategy that anyone can do to minimize their risk of COVID-19 and other infections in coming months
  • More than 1 billion individuals worldwide, across all age groups, are deficient in vitamin D, which has now been identified as a significant risk factor for positive COVID-19 status, severe COVID-19 infection and death thereof
  • In Indonesia, people with a vitamin D level between 20 ng/mL and 30 ng/mL had a sevenfold higher risk of death than those with a level above 30 ng/mL. Having a level below 20 ng/mL was associated with a 12 times higher risk of death
  • To improve your immune function and lower your risk of viral infections, you’ll want to raise your vitamin D to a level between 60 ng/mL and 80 ng/mL (150 nmol/L and 200 nmol/L) by fall
  • Vitamin D optimization is particularly important for dark-skinned individuals, as the darker your skin, the more sun exposure you need to raise your vitamin D level, as well as the elderly

Ketogenic diet – sources, health benefits at NaturalPedia.com

Visitors:0 | Today\\\\\'s Visitors: 0 | Total Visitors This week: 1099

A Ketogenic diet, also known as a keto diet, is a nutritional plan that induces ketosis, a normal metabolic process. During ketosis, your liver produces ketone bodies that act as a source of energy in the absence of sugars from carbohydrates. This diet limits the amount of carbohydrate intake (minus fiber) to 25 to 30 grams daily. The rest of the diet is composed of five percent protein and 70 to 80 percent fat. This diet is one of the many low-carb diets in the world, but is one of the most effective. Continue reading
