NCI Well Connect
February 19, 2018
Dear Steve, 

DID YOU KNOW that Lipopolysaccharides are a common cause of inflammation that starts in the gut? Lipopolysaccharides encapsulate gram negative gut bugs. Letting these out of the gut and into the rest of the body through gut permeability increases inflammation. What is one of the biggest reasons Lipopolysaccharides proliferate? Refined carbohydrate consumption.

The Case for Standing
Bonnie and Steve: A new study published in this month's European Journal of Preventive Cardiology found that standing instead of sitting for six hours a day could prevent weight gain and help people to actually lose body mass.

Prolonged sitting has been linked to the obesity epidemic, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. Most humans in the developed world sit for up to seven hours a day ore more, and even physically active people may spend most of the day in a chair.

The researchers found that standing burned 0.15 kilocalories per minute more than sitting. By substituting standing for sitting for six hours a day, a 143 pound person would expend an extra 54 kilocalories a day. Assuming no increase in food intake, that would equate to 5.5 pounds less in one year and 22 pounds in four years.

Standing not only burns more calories, the additional muscle activity is linked to lower rates of heart attacks, strokes, and diabetes, so the benefits of standing could go beyond weight control.

The gap in energy expenditure between standing and sitting could be even greater than the study found. Participants were standing still, while in reality people make small movements while standing. When people stand they tend to make spontaneous movements like shifting weight or swaying from one foot to another, taking small steps forward and back. People may even be more likely to walk to the filing cabinet or trash bin.

Far Infrared Sauna Therapy
Steve: Traditional saunas emit direct heat. Far Infrared uses light to create heat. Far infrared run at much milder temperatures, but travels much deeper into the body, which is why you sweat more vigorously.

Far Infrared Therapy offers numerous therapeutic benefits, most importantly enhanced detoxification. Many of our clients use it to relieve painful joints, rev up metabolism, and remove buildup of heavy metals.

Far Infrared has shown to draw out 15 to 20% more heavy metals (i.e., mercury, lead, cadmium, arsenic), hormone-disrupting chemicals, sulfuric acid, ammonia, uric-acid, and fat-soluble toxins than traditional saunas.

A recent study from Age and Ageing, showed that healthy subjects whose sauna use averaged 4 to 7 times per week were 66% less likely to develop dementia at 20-year follow-up than those who used a sauna once a week. In addition, they had a 65% risk reduction for Alzheimer's Disease.

Recent studies in JAMA Internal Medicine and American Journal of Hypertension found that increased frequency of sauna bathing reduced the risk of sudden cardiac death, coronary heart disease, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and all-cause mortality.
