We asked Dr. Ellen what her #1 health tip is…
She said, “Every day, find some way to choose yourself. It is not selfish to prioritize your own well-being, and with everything coming at us these days it is vital to make sure we set aside time to take care of ourselves. Sometimes all we can fit in is a few deep, mindful breaths before moving on to the next thing, but even those few breaths have incredible value.”
Functional Medicine Corner
Last week we discussed EPA, DHA and ALA as our foundational Omega 3 fats, and how they work in the body to support every cell’s structure as well as decrease inflammation, lessen clotting concerns and provide benefits to the neurologic system.
Since these fats are such important building blocks for our body, everyone benefits from focusing on including them in their regular diet.
However, certain conditions are provided specific benefits from increased consumption. Let’s touch on a few.
Research shows that increased ingestion of omega-3s is linked to a decreased incidence of cardiovascular events, especially in those with increased risk such as patients with diabetes and high cholesterol. And increased omega-3 intake also lowers triglycerides and helps raise “good” HDL cholesterol!
There are several observational studies that link lower rates of breast and colon cancer with increased ingestion of omega-3 fats. This is believed to be at least partly due to the anti-inflammatory effects of these nutrients.
Omega-3 ingestion can decrease progression of macular degeneration, in addition to decreasing severity of dry eyes. It also supports development of eyes in infants.
Patients with rheumatoid arthritis who supplement with omega-3 have decreased morning stiffness and joint pain compared to those taking placebo. This is likely due to omega-3’s powerful anti-inflammatory affect, which can also provide benefits to those with osteoarthritis.
Although studies show omega-3 can’t be a stand-alone treatment, there are mild to moderate benefits to depressive symptoms. Also, the addition of omega-3 supplementation can help improve recovery after concussion. ADHD symptoms have also been shown to improve in some patients who focus on increasing omega-3 intake.How can we safely increase our intake of these valuable fats? We’ll discuss that next week!
