What Diet Trends Are Dangerous For Your Heart?

Find out which popular diets can actually harm your heart.The current population in the United States is the first society in history that is simultaneously overweight and malnourished. Back in the 70s, obesity skyrocketed because organizations like the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology promoted low-fat diets and low-fat foods that replaced fats with sugar and processed carbohydrates. We often hear that low-fat diets, low cholesterol diets, and veganism can help you lose weight and get healthy. However, these diets are often bad for your heart. Humans need good HDL cholesterol, healthy fats, and certain vitamins found in animal products like B12 and D in order to function. By skipping these food groups, you’re actually more prone to heart disease and obesity.Listen as cardiologist Barbara Hudson Roberts joins Dr. Holly Lucille to discuss diets and heart health.

Encore Episode: Better Posture for Better Health

Realigning your posture may reduce chronic pain and improve your health.Posture is the interpretation of external sensory stimuli on the body’s musculature. Your body can misinterpret stimuli and create faulty motor skills. This generates bad posture and can cause chronic pain. Excessive stress and compression affects your joints, organ function and general health. Childhood InfluenceNot all women have pelvic bones that are well-aligned. This leads to difficulty in the delivery room, which can cause misalignment in babies. It’s best to let your child improve sensory input by allowing freedom of mobility. Avoid putting him in shoes (when possible) until the age of three. Recognizing Poor PostureIf you’ve seen more than one professional for back, joint or neck pain, your posture needs improvement. Head tilting is another compensation for bad posture. Your shoes or pants may not wear out evenly, indicating you may have a postural disequilibrium. Fixing Your PostureRepetitive motion like walking is built on movement patterns. Your body is used to moving this way, and your brain needs to be retrained. Constant stimulation over a period of time can change faulty motor patterns. Exercises to create new motor habits can be done in just minutes a day. Listen as posture expert Annette Verpillot joins Dr. Holly Lucille to discuss how your posture (and overall health) can be improved.
