Your 6 Steps to Avoiding Chemicals

  Your 6 Steps To Avoiding Chemicals It is estimated that we have a minimum of 40 neurotoxins & carcinogens in our blood & urine at all times. Studies have shown that almost everyone tested had significant levels of pathogens and varying levels of vitamin & mineral deficiencies. Much of this is due to contaminated soil, water & the air we breathe daily. Our crops are grown on soils depleted & grown with artificial fertilizers and our meats are consumed from animals given antibiotics & growth hormones to increase their weight. One of the major problems with toxins is that you cannot see, taste, smell or feel them. We do not realize we are being affected until we come down with a chronic illness after years of subtle and repetitive exposure. Toxins are 1 of the 6 Interferences to Wellness along with structural integrity, nutrition, allergies, electromagnetic interference and negative emotional patterns. A study published in the British Medical Journal estimated that 75% of most cancers are caused by environmental toxins and lifestyle factors which are stored in fatty tissues. Some of the effects of these toxins include: * Neurological disorders * Cancer * Nutritional Deficiencies * Hormone Imbalances–infertility, premature puberty, PMS, menopausal symptoms * Enzyme dysfunction * Fatigue, Headaches, Obesity * Muscle and Vision problems * Immune system issues, Allergies, Asthma, Chemical sensitivities * Chronic viral infections   WHAT ARE THE 6 STEPS TO KEEP YOU SAFE IN A WORLD OF CHEMICALS? Since most food products are contaminated with toxic chemicals buy and eat organic produce and free-range organic foods as often as possible. Avoid eating farm-raised fish...

What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

What is Spinal Decompression/Traction Therapy? It is a non-surgical traction type therapy for back, leg, neck and arm pain. Spinal decompression is FDA approved and clinically has an 86% success rate for pain associated with bulging or herniated discs, even after failed back surgery. During the treatment, gentle distraction and relaxation phases are cycled through. A specific spinal disc is isolated and when placed under a negative pressure, a vacuum effect occurs. This effect causes a protruding or herniated disc to be pulled back within the disc by the vacuum created within the disc. Also, this vacuum stimulates growth of a blood supply which results in pain reduction and improved healing at the site of injury. How is Spinal Decompression Therapy Different from other types of Traction? The Decompression unit we have at our office controls the variations in the traction allowing for spinal decompression and eliminates muscle reaction and compression seen with typical traction devices. Since patterns are preprogrammed for ramping up and down, the axial distraction amount allows for higher levels of spinal decompression and disc rehydration. When is Spinal Decompression not recommended? It is not recommended for: pregnant women, severe osteoporosis, severe obesity, severe nerve damage and spinal surgery with instrumentation. However, it can be used after bone fusion or non-fusion surgery. How often is treatment recommended and how long does a treatment take? Treatment plans are specific to each individual’s needs after a thorough evaluation has been performed. Based on the current research, the best results have been achieved after about 20 sessions over a 6-10 week timeframe. Each session takes about 30-40 minutes. To...

10 VITAL KEYS TO DIABETES PREVENTION

  10 VITAL  KEYS TO DIABETES PREVENTION    Did you know that the average American consumes more than 120 pounds of sugar per year, which is approximately 45 teaspoons per day? Did you know that recent statistics have shown that two-thirds of Americans are overweight or obese and that thirty percent of American children are obese? According to the latest research out of the University of Missouri, one in four Americans are struggling with diabetes with the majority of them as type 2. In addition, millions of us are in a state of insulin resistance, or pre-diabetes, that could progress into diabetes. Diabetes can cause many serious health issues and is associated with obesity, heart disease, and increased mortality. It is the fifth deadliest disease in the United States. A preventative approach would be to make sure that blood glucose levels are stable throughout the day. Our brain needs a continuous level of blood sugar to avoid anxiety caused by blood sugar fluctuations. Are you at risk for diabetes? Do you have a family history of diabetes? Are you overweight? Do you have high blood pressure? Are your cholesterol levels abnormal? Are you over 45? Do you have a history of gestational diabetes? Drug Treatment the answer? A new meta-analysis of 13 randomized controlled trials involved more than 33,000 people showed that drug treatment of type 2 diabetes is not only ineffective, it’s dangerous as well. These medications poison the enzymes in our body and disrupt the normal biochemical pathways. In general, a drug therapy protocol should treat the underlying cause of the illness that the drug is being...

Tired? Sleepy? Stressed and Don’t Know Why?

Tired? Sleepy? Stressed and Don’t Know Why? If you have symptoms involving: fatigue, insomnia, stress, frequent illness, PMS, hot flashes, blood sugar, and weight, you may want to consider having your cortisol levels as well as hormones tested. Men and women over the age of forty may want to do a baseline test. Frequently imbalances will be detectable for a time period before symptoms gain attention. Difference Between Saliva & Serum Hormone Testing? Saliva testing is an EASY and a NONINVASIVE way of assessing one’s hormone status and is proving to be the most reliable medium for measuring hormone levels. The difference between steroid hormones in saliva and serum is based on whether or not the hormones are bound to proteins in the medium used for testing. The majority of hormones exist in one of two forms: FREE (5%) or PROTEIN BOUND (95%). It is only the FREE hormones that are biologically active, or BIO-AVAILABLE, and available for delivery to receptors in the body. Those which are protein bound do not fit those receptors and are considered not bio-available. When blood is filtered through the salivary glands, the BOUND HORMONE COMPONENTS ARE TOO LARGE to pass through the cell membranes. Only the UNBOUND hormones pass through and into the saliva. What is measured in the saliva is the BIO-AVAILABLE hormone, the clinically relevant portion which will be delivered to the receptors in the tissues of the body. SALIVARY HORMONE levels are expected to be much lower than serum levels, as only the UNBOUND hormones are being measured. When your doctor measures serum hormone levels and prescribes hormone replacement therapy...

Discover Pain-Free Traveling this summer! Don’t let back pain be a part of your vacation! Follow these easy suggestions. While in the Car Stretch. Before you subject your body to long periods of sitting, it’s a good idea to stretch. This will improve circulation and make positioning yourself easier and more comfortable. Support your spine. Many vehicle seats are designed to provide some lower back and neck support, but chances are you don’t “fit the mold” exactly. Bring small pillows or specially designed back or neck pillows to give extra support as needed. Shift positions and stretch often. When you stretch or vary your position, muscles are much less likely to lock up and cause discomfort or pain. Stop the car to fully stretch whenever muscles feel exceptionally tight or fatigued. Squeeze the steering wheel when stopped. When at a red light or stopped in traffic, squeeze and release your hands around your steering wheel to decrease tension in your arms, neck and shoulders. On the Plane Exercise before you board. Even simply walking along the terminal prior to boarding will keep muscles from becoming stiff or tense early into the flight. Use pillows to support the natural curvature of your spine. Vary positions, move, and stretch. Though you don’t have the luxury of stopping the plane every couple hours to get out and relieve your aching back, standing up in your seat, stretching, and walking about the aisles as needed can prevent strain. Space in airplanes is notoriously tight, but a few easy stretches, like lifting your arms over your head and reaching up toward the ceiling or...
