When it comes to managing chronic illness and even preventing it – the key lies in the power of nutrition.
The impact of WHAT WE EAT and WHEN WE EAT determines the level of inflammation our bodies are dealing with everyday. Inflammation in the body means inflammation in the brain.
Today, we have the pleasure of sitting down with Haylie Pomroy, the Owner, Founder and CEO of the Haylie Pomroy Group, an integrative health and supplement company that was founded over 10 years ago with the launch of the book The Fast Metabolism Diet.
As a health strategist, renowned nutritionist and NYT best-selling author 6 times over – she shares strategies and resources to put out the flame of inflammation to protect your health and brain!
Don’t miss the opportunity to delve into this insightful episode ▶️ Food, Eating, and Alzheimer’s Disease
Key points covered in this episode:
✔️Pursuing ease from disease.
Learn from Haylie’s incredible journey. She was on her path to becoming a veterinarian when her life took a drastic turn. A routine tonsillectomy resulted in a severe hemorrhage, almost claiming her life. This incident uncovered an autoimmune disorder where she ended up in the hospital with partial kidney failure, facing a major health crisis. She knew that something had to change. So, she pursued a degree in agriculture and soil sciences, delving into the world of biochemistry, and decided that there’s got to be a way to heal metabolism, to heal what’s wrong in the body and has been helping many others for 30 years.
✔️ Food is Medicine – it’s time to put power on your plate
DIET means “Did I Eat Today?” It’s all about finding what you’re aiming for – be it shedding some pounds, boosting your libido, or even promoting hair growth. Ask yourself: Did I consume food in a manner that supports my body in achieving those goals? If not, commit to stop eating that.
✔️ Strategic Eating and Timing
The importance of rotating your food groups. It’s not good to keep eating the same thing over and over again. When we eat a variety of foods, our body releases hormones and enzymes that help us stay healthy. Our gut ecosystem thrives and gets nourished.
To maintain a strategic eating routine, aim to have three meals and two snacks evenly spaced every 3 hours.
Prioritize whole foods like berries, fish, and leafy greens to eat as we age to reduce our risk of neurodegeneration/ neuroinflammation.
Stress drains our body of essential nutrients. If we combine intentional stress reduction techniques with eating healthy, it can have a tremendous impact on our lives.
To keep a fit body and sharp mind as we grow older, it’s essential to have a supportive tribe around us. Haylie is here to guide and support you to attain remarkable levels of health and energy – at any age.
