THE LESS INGREDIENTS THE BETTER

Amanda Beckner

When we eat packaged processed foods high in preservative and sodium to keep it shelf stable - we are ruining our health. Our bodies do not do well on synthetics and drugs. Just like your little sports car would not run well on diesel gas.When we go on a "pharmaceutical drug" for a health condition - we are putting a Band-Aid on a symptom only. If you change your diet, get rid of what is causing your disease in the first place, you will fix your problem.There has never been a drug on the market th...

Is it really organic and safe?

As I tell my clients all the time - just because it says organic or natural - this does not mean it is safe.  Choose a reputable source when buying organic - it needs to be "certified organic" with correct standards.  Buying organic from a third world country is not - just the water alone it grows in can contaminate the product - we have just witnessed this from many of the recent protein powders and super foods that are stepping forward before they too are caught.  Just the fact that they kn...

Garden of Life Raw Protein not SAFE?

Garden of Life Raw Protein – no longer safe to use?  For clients using the Garden of Life Product – it is not known how long this has been going on for.  From my understanding it is from the new batch out in January 2014 on… however this may very well have been going on a lot longer.  There are recommendations of a whey protein in this article – however it contains dairy and can be problematic for those that cannot consume dairy.  I would use the Ultimate Meal by the Ultimate...

Is ADD & ADHD a Fictitious Disease?

I recently saw this on the internet and wanted to post as i have been telling my clients this for years.  ADD and ADHD is caused by too much sugar in the diet.  Creating a child to be hyperactive and schools wanting to "label" because of an unruly child in class - this allows something to be done - and not the right something - namely drugs.   Which is a "bandage to fix a symptom"  Correct diet will fix the problem so the symptom will go away and so will this "labeled" disease cal...

Question - Does Fish Oil Cause Cancer?

Question: Dr. Beckner, The recent studies are very concerning about fish oil, indicating that there is a 70% correlation between high Omega levels and prostate cancer. Do you have doubts about the accuracy of these studies? A good quality fish oil  will help inflammation and joint issues as well as heart, cardiovascular disease and raised triglycerides. There are several critical errors that need clarification.  The body works as a whole, not in parts.  One vital point to keep in mi...

Angelina Jolie's decision for a double mastectomy

By Amanda Beckner CN,HHP, PhD

Angelina Jolie's decision for a double mastectomy and now possible removal of her ovaries is a large lack of education on her part.  I find it a crime that she feels she is being proactive in possibly eliminating a disease that may never happen.  If you have 100% chance of a hereditary disease … if you change your DNA (diet, nutrition and attitude) you can eliminate the chance of ever contracting any disease as well as healing it if you have already had it. I have hundreds of clients that have b...

Reversing Heart Disease

Amanda Beckner, CN, HHP, Ph.D

Heart disease includes many conditions affecting the heart; a few to mention would be myocardial infarction or better known as a heart attack, palpitations, coronary heart disease, congestive heart failure and angina.

GETTING WELL FROM ADD & ADHD

Amanda Beckner CN, HHP, Ph.D

I can't tell you how many children and adults I work with that come in with a diagnosis of ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) and ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) - These disorders are considered the fastest growing childhood disorder in the United States, affecting 10 percent of all school-aged children.  Boys are far more likely than girls to be diagnosed with ADD or ADHD.  Even though this is considered a childhood disorder, adults are labeled with this as well.  Both ...

Depression

Amanda Beckner CN, HHP, Ph.D

It is estimated that over 20 million people suffer from depression every year.   This illness affects the body as a whole; moods, thoughts, behaviors,emotions and the entire nervous system. One main cause of depressionhas been linked to food allergy's which in my opinion is caused bydissimulation of nutrient due to poor diet, stress and or trauma. Toomuch sugar, an imbalance of nutrient, and a lack of exercise compoundedby any physical disorder can bring the onset of depression in the form of ...

High Protein Diet Shrinks Brain

Amanda Beckner CN, HHP, Ph.D

I have told my clients for the last 20 years some of the harmful effects of the high protein/low carbohydrate diet.  I found this article on "high protein diet shrinks the brain" very informative on problematics of development of the brain when feeding the body incorrectly and out of balance.   Balance in diet is extremely important for all parts of our body as a whole to function and maintain correctly.  Another problem with the high protein/low carbohydrate diet is its ability ...

Do high-protien diets work?

Amanda Beckner CN, HHP, Ph.D

Our society has gone through much hi-protein misinformation with diets offered over the years. It seems that because most weight loss clinics judge by the scale and not what you are actually losing, meaning fat, and not muscle.  Even medical readings when we test our blood and cholesterol can initially produce a false reading. That is why many medical doctors have been fooled into believing that hi-protein diets really work.We have all lived our lives a certain way, eaten a certain way, had diff...

The Amino Acid L-Carnitine

Amanda Beckner There seem to be many myths regarding the amino acid L-Carnitine.  Such as if you take this amino acid you will lose fat, your energy will increase, it will automatically lower your cholesterol levels, helps you to avoid a heart attack, stops food cravings and seems to help with side effects on medications.  While, this all sounds wonderful, it is not as simple as it sounds.  Lets take a look at the plain and simple facts.   L-Carnitine...

Sugar And Its Effects

Amanda Beckner Sugar, whether it enters the body in the form of fructose, corn syrup, honey, or refined will react the exact same way in the body.  One exception is when fructose is eaten in its natural state such as what is in a whole apple or banana; the body's blood sugar will not drop as low as with other sugar.Sugar effects lean people differently than heavy people.  Sugar can actually improve an athletes performance, but with heavy people where the body is not...

Colitis, Diverticulitis, IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)

Amanda Beckner Even though these diseases are different, they are treated very much the same as far as food enzyme to consume and avoid.   Diverticula are a pea or grape size protrusion in the intestinal wall. Without sufficient fiber to soften and add bulk, constipation will occur and stools are harder to pass.  This pressure creates weak points in the wall of the colon. Symptoms can be mild to chronic and usually are accompanied with sharp pain on the left side of ...

Fruit and Fiber the Key to Weight Management: Study

SOURCE: Journal of the American Dietetic Association By studying the diets of 52 normal-weight adults and 52 overweight or obese adults, researchers found that normal-weight adults ate more fiber and fruit each day than their overweight and obese counterparts.   "These findings suggest that the composition of a diet, especially low dietary fiber and fruit intake, play a role in the (development) of obesity," concludes the study team in the Journal of the American Dieteti...
