Did the sugar I ate last night throw my immune system over-the-edge?!

I have battled a cold all week long. And really was quite excited at how my body was fighting it off! Well, last night I ate not one, but three donuts from Smokey Bones. Woke up this morning and the COLD was on complete and all in it’s glory!

You know, I have read about sugar and all the harmful things it does to our bodies and especially our immune systems. And I have even seen somewhat of a connection before in my own life. But this, was so completely obvious to me! WOW!

In a post I wrote about sugar, I had read where sugar can suppress your immune system and impair your defenses against infectious disease. And this is exactly what happened this week. It’s like my immune system was fighting and winning and then I put a bunch of refined sugar in my body and BOOM! My defenses against infectious diseases definitely weakened!

Hopefully my little immune system will find the strength to recover soon!!!


Not Writing Much Lately Here

August 14, 2007 at 12:02 am | Posted in Updates | Leave a comment

I haven’t been writing much here lately and tonight I was thinking about why that is.

I think it is primarily because there is a lot going on in our lives right now. Lots of other stuff on my brain. But then I also think it is because I have been feeling so well lately, that I haven’t looked into health stuff much. I am still on the journey, I am not saying that, but I am just not finding myself seeking out as much information about it. Therefore, not having much to send your way here.

It’s a good thing, really. A good thing, that my health is better! A REALLY GOOD THING!

Whole Foods Podcast

My friend, Rob, pointed out to me today that Whole Foods has podcasts!

I just listened to the Back to School podcast, as my daughter will be going to Pre-K this year.

So, great idea. I also liked it because I can listen to it as I browse around other stuff on-line. Check it out. You don’t have to download it, you can just listen straight from there.
