What is Babesia

Babesia is a parasite and one of the infections transmitted by a tic along with Lyme disease, bartonella and mycoplasma infections. Symptoms of babesiosis are similar to those of Lyme disease but it more often starts with a high fever and chills. As the infection progresses, patients may develop fatigue, headache, sweats, muscle aches, nausea, and vomiting. Babesiosis is often so mild it is not noticed but can be life-threatening to people with no spleen, the elderly, and people with weak immune systems. Complications include very low blood pressure, liver problems, severe hemolytic anemia (a breakdown of red blood cells), .Babesia-Giemsa-stain-CDChere is a picture of the parasite (blue) infecting the red blood cells. There is a blood antibody test that can detect Babesia, and treatment involves antibiotics and antiparasite medication.

How Sweet it is ( Said Jackie Gleason)

Is sugar really addictive?

Yes it is- you crave it because it increases your dopamine in the brain, and that makes you feel good, (when the insulin  helps sugar cross into the brain)-

I recommend no more than 10 grams of sugar per serving at breakfast lunch or dinner

If what you are eating or drinking has more- it probably is too much. ( see below)

cola sugar

Other names for sugar include High fructose corn syrup, glucose, lactose, malt syrup, molasses and sucrose, and evaporated cane juice, dextrose

Kick the sugar habit and slowly replace it with protein, Protein empties slower from the stomach and will slower the absorption of sugar into the blood. Fiber or a high fiber diet also slows the absorption of sugar into the blood.

Green Tea

Throughout modern day Asia, drinking green tea as a means to good health is a widely accepted and common practice. In fact, China’s use of green tea as a form of medicine dates back forty-seven hundred years! Green tea was so important to the Japanese culture that they formed ceremonies and special tea houses around it.

Green tea, as well as white and black, are known to be rich in antioxidants, and decrease the risk of cancers of the stomach, esophagus, ovaries and colon. Cancer fighting and prevention properties are scientifically shown to be the result of the high concentration of polyphenols and flavanoids, which are particularly rich in green tea. Studies show that drinking six to eight cups a day of green tea helps prevent breast cancer and other hormone sensitive cancers. Other documented benefits of green tea include protection of the cardiovascular and neurovascular systems.
