Hormone problems? Not for me.


I didn’t think about hormones before, but now I’m closer to my 50s than my 40s, so I’m thinking about hormones, but not in a negative way. I know I have to optimize them, I have much more knowledge and awareness than I used to 10 years ago. Why should we optimize them? First of all, I want my aging process to be harmonic. I wouldn’t like to see myself tired, …Read More

5 things you might do daily that make you bloated

Every day we are exposed to factors that promote bloating; however, sometimes we don’t know that certain habits affect us a lot more than we think. We’ve already talked about bloating; we’ve said that it’s a defense mechanism and that it’s useful to know the source of the problem; however, we must consider that, the more bloated the body is, the more diseases we’ll have. Here are 5 factors that …Read More

DO YOU HAVE TO UNBUTTON YOUR PANTS AFTER A MEAL?

The first thing we must do is disambiguate the term; for many, being inflamed is to be holding liquids; for others, it means having to unbutton their pants. Inflammation is a body’s defense mechanism, a protection mechanism, and that may be present, you notice it or not. Another point that’s not considered is that inflammation is necessary because, thanks to it, the body is able to defend itself. Let’s take …Read More

IS YOUR SLEEP HYGIENE RELATED TO FATNESS, LACK OF DEFENSES AND MUCH MORE?

Is your sleep not refreshing enough? We’ve already talked about the effects of sleeping badly: it accelerates inflammatory processes, bad mood, fatigue and others. However, sometimes we don’t think about the reasons why we’re not sleeping well. One of the most common reasons why people sleep poorly is emotional, especially stress. But what happens when the body is stressed? Definitely, the mind does not relax and the hypothalamic, pituitary, adrenal …Read More

WHAT TO DO THESE HOLIDAYS?

Have you noticed that, during extended periods of excesses, both in food and drinks, your body gets slower, with less energy? 1. Chemicals.

THE IMPORTANCE OF FATS FOR CHILDREN.

Fats are key, we’ve talked about it already. However, many people, although they know it, it seems that it can become secondary or it seems to them that they can eat them for a week and then stop for the next one. The recommendation will always be the same: include them. But what happens when you make the decision to give in to the children’s request to substitute fats for …Read More

WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON’T EAT FAT?

Last week, we talked about WHY SHOULD I EAT FAT? (LINK TO BLOG), and we talked about true fats, toxic fats and some diseases that suffer those who do not consume true fats. Now, I would like to talk about what happens when you decrease your fat intake in a short time. Dissatisfaction. If you take fat from food, you’ll get to the point where there won’t be any amount …Read More

WHY SHOULD I EAT FATS?

The fats controversy seems like a topic that will never end, but many people forget that it is precisely fats that give us life; without them there is no health, there is no optimal metabolism, there is no good training, development and brain evolution, the liver decreases its correct activity, the aging process is more noticeable… in short, we could continue to list each of the negative impacts of diets …Read More

I DO NOT AGREE WITH “WHAT THE HEALTH”

Last week I saw the video What the health and it surprised me for many reasons. The first is that some of the data they show as true are far from being based on scientific data. On the other hand, according to the documentary, they say that the culprit of diabetes is not sugar; this is a fallacy, since, of course, the sugar industry will not tell us it’s harmful, …Read More

I always try to be studying, which makes me travel continuously; for example, this month I have been in Asia on a course. Besides, I have family outside of Mexico, as well as patients, for which I travel at least once a month. Therefore, at first I had no idea about everything …Read More
