Biochemical Type

What is your Biochemical Type?

South Beach … Atkins … Zone … With so many fad diets on the market, there’s a general misconception about what a healthy diet consists of. Nutrition is not one-size-fits-all. Each person’s Biochemical type and genetic background influence how the body produces energy.

waterBiochemical typing is finding the proper food combination and percentage for the individual. Biochemical type is analyzed though comprehensive software that utilizes blood chemistry and urine. The L3W system has 7 different Biochemical types. Biochemical Type is determined by what Nervous systems dominate the body is (Sympathetic or Parasympathetic) The Biochemical type is also determined by how you metabolize food (Excellent, Good and Poor).

Sympathetic Nervous system dominant: Generate their energy more from Carbohydrates (vegetables and fruit).They need lean protein when they combine their food (chicken/turkey breast, and lean fish). The lean protein does not interfere with fast energy (carbohydrates) the body needs. They are slightly more acidic and need more alkaline forming foods.

Parasympathetic Nervous system dominant:  Generate their energy more from fatty proteins. They need more fat while combing their food. The fatty proteins slow the carbohydrates (vegetables and fruits) from spiking the sugar. They are prone to hypoglycemia…They are slightly more alkaline and need more acidic forming foods..

Sugar intake raises the blood sugar level, in response, the pancreas releases insulin to help utilize the sugar and reduce circulating blood sugar levels; fat is absorbed when this process occurs as excessive insulin pushes the glucose in to the fat storage centers.

Every time you have an insulin surge the body:

1)     Retains body fat

2)     Decreased Testosterone

3)     Increase Serotonin

The body gets fat, weak, tired and eventually weakens the pancreas (pre-diabetes/diabetes).

The Biochemical typing reduces the sugar spikes and insulin surges. Other positive results the body obtains when eating for their Biochemical type:

  • have more energy
  • avoid storing fat
  • increase muscle density
  • sleep better
  • decrease the negative impact on your organs and glands
  •  slows down the aging process.

Thyroid Function and Hypothyroidism

Thyroid & Glands

The Thyroid

The Thyroid is the master gland which regulates the other glands, if it is under producing, it will affect the entire metabolism and hormonal system.

The Live Longer Live well program provides a comprehensive panel, and these markers include a TSH, T4 and T3.  Thyroid problems are not always linked to the gland itself, just because a patient has an elevated TSH and a Low T3 does not mean you have a problem.

The Adrenal Glands, Hypothalamus and pancreas all have a direct relationship with the Thyroid. If these other organs and glands are not functioning properly then the master gland will produce less Thyroid hormone and the blood chemistry will reflect with an elevated TSH and depressed T3.

Excessive stress or physical exercise will cause Adrenal problems, if the Adrenal glands are fatigued or stressed, the Thyroid will not let T4 convert into T3. The adrenal glands have to be tested and treated before other problems are resolved.

The Hypothalamus and Pituitary send the neurological message to the Thyroid; low cholesterol will decrease brain function and if there is decreased brain health, the Thyroid will be affected and will decrease Thyroid hormone production.

Blood sugar levels need attention to increase the production of the Thyroid, as insulin resistance and diabetes put enormous stress on the Adrenal glands and Thyroid.  Most times, Thyroid blood chemistry levels will improve as Hypothalamus, Pituitary, and Adrenal glands are addressed properly.

Doctors need to stop pushing Synthyroid (a synthetic drug to mimics thyroid hormone) to normalize the blood levels. The doctor and the patient need to address other areas before diagnosing the Thyroid is the main problem.

Go get a comprehensive blood chemistry panel from a Live Longer Live Well provider. The L3W system will show the patient what organ or gland needs attention. We suggest the conservative approach first before going on life time medication.

New Cholesterol Testing (VAP)

New Cholesterol Testing (VAP)

Cholesterol5The Live Longer Live Well system (L3W) promotes the newest and most accurate diagnostic blood chemistry. The comprehensive blood chemistry shows you a snap shot of your body chemistry. We recommend the 42 different markers to generate the live longer live well (L3W) program. This gives the patient their Biochemical type and what organs and glands are not functioning properly and in priority.

There is a very detailed Cholesterol panel called the “VAP” panel. This panel shows the quality and size of the particles of the HDL, LDL and Triglyceride. The panel also tells if the patient has metabolic syndrome. The routine blood chemistry everyone is receiving consists of: total cholesterol, HDL (the amount), LDL (the amount), Triglyceride (the amount) and the ratio between HDL and LDL. Live Longer Live Well believes these markers are obsolete. It’s not the total number of the cholesterol particles, it is the quality of cholesterol.  Cholesterol is very important in brain, hormone and immune health. The bigger size cholesterol particles (HDL, Triglycerides, and LDL) are healthy, and the small dense particles are the inflammatory bad Cholesterol. The small particles wedge themselves in the lumen of the artery and cause an inflammatory response. This inflammatory response causes the body to promote plaguing and arteriosclerosis. Unhealthy fat causes the LDL to become a small dense particle and excessive sugar causes the HDL and Triglyceride to become a small dense particle.

HDL-LDL

Eating for your biochemical type and taking the right supplements will increase the quality of your Cholesterol. L3W highly recommends patients over 45 or has family history of heart disease to get tested through L3W. The Live Longer Live Well cardiovascular program will also check a C-reactive protein (CRP). The body will produce this protein when inflammation occurs. This is the best indicator for inflammation in the arteries. Get cardiovascular program with a VAP test from a Live Longer Live Well provider. The patient will know exactly where they are and where they need to go to live a longer and healthy life.

Cholesterol

The Cholesterol Truth

It may surprise you to know that cholesterol itself isn’t bad. In fact, cholesterol is just one of the many substances created and used by our bodies to keep us healthy. Cholesterol is made up of 70% Cholic acid which breaks down and metabolizes fat for energy, and the other 30% produces most of our Hormones (Testosterone, Progesterone, Estrogen and DHEA). Cholesterol is essential for Brain health, Immune response and Hormonal stability. Most people think bad cholesterol only comes from eating fat. Healthy fat enhances the positive effects of cholesterol without causing the inflammatory bad ramifications of bad cholesterol. Excessive sugar in the blood stream goes to the liver which produces bad Triglycerides and HDL. Bad fat will cause an inflammatory response to cause a bad quality LDL.

High Cholesterol or fat does not cause plaguing or blockage in the arteries, Inflammation causes plaguing or blockage. Inflammation can be caused by numerous factors; atheroscTrans-fat intake, stress, genetics, sugar, insulin surges, toxins and a combination of bad lifestyle choices.

Live Longer Live Well (L3W) is in favor of eating high quality fats, and eating for your Biochemical Type. Eating for your Biochemical Type will reduce the amount of excessive sugar in the blood and increasing the quality of your Cholesterol.

Total Cholesterol, HDL, LDL and Triglyceride blood serum levels are obsolete. Those markers give the total number found in the blood not the Quality or size. A patient can have a total cholesterol of 230 and be totally healthy with no arteriolosclerosis and get all of the positive effects (brain, hormonal and immune) of Cholesterol. While a patient with a 150 total cholesterol can have inflammation and cardiovascular disease. Brain and Hormonal signs and symptoms can present such as: memory issues, foggy, headaches, low libido, sexual dysfunction, hot flashes, anxiety, sugar cravings, lack of motivation and any brain or hormone signs or symptoms.

The L3W system reduces the risk of arteriosclerosis and diabetes. The next post will talk about the new and accurate testing for cholesterol, diabetes and cardiovascular risks.

Gallbladder

Low fat diets can cause gall stones and eventual gallbladder removal. The gallbladder stores bile which is produced in the liver. The bile acts like soap and breaks down fat. It is very important to eat for your biochemical type to utilize the gallbladder.
