Omega 3 Fats – Support for Your Immune System, Adrenals and Fatigue

I love coming up with new recipes that offer delicious ways to meet your needs for basic nutrients that support your in overcoming chronic fatigue, autoimmune conditions and hormone imbalances.  Omega 3 fats are commonly deficient in today's world, and imbalances here are a major contributing factor in most chronic and degenerative disease.  The proper balance of Omega fats can protect you from heart disease, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, chronic fatigue, autoimmune disease, thyroid issues, hormone imbalances, and any chronic inflammatory condition you can think of.

Getting enough omega 3 fats is a problem.  Most Americans eat a ratio of 25:1 or higher of  Omega 6 to Omega 3  fats.  Omega 3 fats are found in meat, dairy, eggs, peanuts and most vegetable oils, like soybean, canola, safflower, corn and sunflower.  All processed foods contain an imbalance of Omega 6 to Omega 3 fats.

Researchers estimate that a healthier ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 intake is between 1:1 and 3:1.  Is this possible to achieve?  Yes!  In eastern countries, like Japan, people eating a more traditional diet have ratios of 1.5:1, while those eating a more western diet have ratios more similar to Americans.

There are lots of strategies I teach my private coaching clients and those in my programs, like Balance My Body.  In fact we have several hours of recorded classes on this topic  from last week alone  and I've created charts and spreadsheets to assist people in measuring their omega fats and bringing them into balance.

I've been playing and came up with a super delicious high omega 3 chia pudding:
