Addiction: Sugar vs Cocaine

Posted on December 18 by

Research has identified a neural circuit that selectively controls compulsive sugar consumption, without preventing feeding necessary for survival, providing a potential target for therapeutic interventions for compulsive-overeating disorder.
 
This scientific data also suggests that for impulsive people, sugar may be no less addictive than other VTA-affecting substances, such as cocaine.
 
*Now in layman terms.....sugar STIMULATES the same part of the brain as cocaine or any other stimulant, causing cravings and addiction for the most part. Just remember you can get rid of sugar cravings! If you are struggling after the holidays, I am offering a 10% discount on any of my services for the month of January. Just mention this new year's special for your discount.

Cranberries

Tis the season for cranberries and all of their health benefits. Cranberries help with urinary tract health, lowering blood pressure, prevention of some cancers and improved immune function.
It is easy to find them in any store this time of year, but can be difficult to find once the holiday season is over. Each year I buy extra bags of cranberries and put them directly in the freezer so I can enjoy them through out the year.
