STEROIDS IN CHILDREN
The use of steroids in children is difficult to justify. For 30 years we've known that prolonged use for asthma and eczema retards growth in children and delays puberty. Many studies of children with juvenile chronic arthritis given steroids show they suffer growth retardation.
Children given topical and inhaled steroids are prone to same side-effects, such as stunted growth and adrenal suppression.
Steroids may also affect a cognitive performance. In one study, where children are on combination steroid drugs were given tests of visual retention association, the performance of children on the drugs (some six to eight hours after receiving steroid medication) was significantly worse than that of a group of non-asthmatics.
We all know someone who has suffered with Dementia. Alzheimer's is a build up of proteins in the brain to form structures called 'Plaques' and 'tangles'. This leads to the loss of connections between nerve cells and eventually to the death of nerve cells and loss of brain tissue..
When there is a shortage of them, the signals are not transmitted as effectively. Current treatments for Alzheimer's Disease can help boost the levels of chemical messengers in the brain.
What is Candida? It is a fungus, which is a form of yeast.
Very small amounts of it live in your mouth and intestines. It's job is to aid digestion and nutrient absorption but, when overproduced, candida breaks down the wall of the intestine and penetrates the bloodstream releasing toxic by products into your body and causing leaky gut.
This can lead to many health problems ranging from digestive problems to depression.
Thrives and survives on sugar, therefore sugars and sugar-producing carbohydrates must be eliminated from your diet.
