drjoh_photo5_borderIn his new show, Dr. Ramirez, owner of Longevity and Vitality Centers, cites a controversial Los Angeles Times Op Ed article  “Do not Believe The American Heart Association…”  

The idea behind the article goes along with what Dr. Ramirez has maintained, and that is…

 What is harming us in our “modern” diet is processed foods  “Butter steak and coconut oil aren’t likely to kill you!”   Butter, nuts and cheeses belong in a healthy diet.

Why have processed foods taken over our lives?  Dr. Ramirez says they have good marketing campaigns and sugar is addictive!  Heroin and sugar produce the same amount of dopamine – causing the same reaction in the brain!  Sugar withdrawal is the same as heroin withdrawal.

Processed foods are cheap and easily obtained – but we are lucky in Southern California, in the Oxnard, Ventura County area.  There are farmers markets, and health food.  But – Dr. Ramirez says,  if you don’t have healthy food readily available, do the best you can.

Dr. Ramirez’s Advice for a Better Diet and a Healthy Life:

  • Eat honest healthy food as much as possible.
  • Go to Farmers Markets.
  • Shop at your local health food stores – Farmers Markets, Lassens, Trader Joes, Whole Foods.
  • If you have limited access to organic – eat as natural as possible. 
  • Go back to Mother Nature in your eating and daily habits.
  • Get off the internet and have a conversation!
