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...

6 Simple keys to Keeping Your Heart Strong

6 SIMPLE KEYS TO KEEPING YOUR HEART STRONG WHY THE FUSS ABOUT CHOLESTEROL? It is a fatty, waxy material that is found in high-fat meat and dairy products, as well as egg yolks, organ meats and shellfish. Because of the essential role cholesterol plays in every cell of the body to help digest fats, strengthen cell membranes, and make hormones – the body creates all it needs on its own – about 1,000 mg a day. In order for cholesterol to reach our cells, it must rely on special carriers called lipoproteins: low-density lipoproteins (LDL)-“bad” form and high-density lipoproteins (HDL)-‘good” form of cholesterol. LDL carries cholesterol through the body and deposits it in the cells. HDL transports any cholesterol the cells don’t need to the liver, where it eventually gets processed and eliminated. Although various body tissues remove LDL cholesterol from the bloodstream and then use it to make cell membranes, bile acids, vitamin D and various hormones, once the tissues have acquired all the cholesterol they need, they stop extracting LDL cholesterol from the bloodstream. The extra cholesterol, which happens when we eat too many foods high in cholesterol, continues to circulate in your arteries. LDL deposits the excess cholesterol onto artery walls, where it forms plaque that clogs the blood vessels and can ultimately lead to heart disease or even a heart attack. A good idea is to keep your LDL cholesterol level under 2.5 mmol/L (96 mg/dL) and your total cholesterol about 3.9 mmol/L (150 mg/dL)-4.7 mmol/L (180 mg/dL). WHAT ABOUT THE CHOLESTEROL LOWERING DRUGS CALLED STATINS? New research has shown that 1/2 the people who...

How To Avoid Back Pain During the Holidays

HOW TO AVOID BACK PAIN DURING THE HOLIDAYS Parties? Shopping?  Driving? Wrapping gifts?  Our 12 solutions to decrease stress and muscle tension that lead to back and neck pain. WHILE INDOORS: Sit in a comfortable and firm chair and be aware of your sitting posture. While prolonged standing put equal weight on both feet. Need help? Get your posture checked at our office for FREE with our NEW COMPUTERIZED POSTURE ANALYZER. Unless you are using a headset, don’t cradle the phone between your ear and shoulder while cooking, cleaning and talking. WRAPPING GIFTS: Best not to wrap presents on the floor as that encourages poor posture. Instead vary your position while wrapping.   Stand or sit at a table, sit in bed or sit in a comfortable chair. Remember to “stretch opposites”, so if you are leaning forward stretch backward. SHOPPING? Be comfortable with supportive shoes and comfortable clothing. Wear a fanny pack, instead of your heavy purse, with the essential items you need. Stretch before and after a day of shopping to stretch out your muscles. Make frequent visits to your car so you do not carry too much at once. Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. Take regular breaks and eat light foods. (ie: salad, fruit, cheese, sliced turkey, veggies, nuts, etc) Try not to bring your children with you as this leads to frustration for everyone. At the end of your day, stretch your muscles, take a hot bath or shower and consider a relaxing massage with one of our therapists. If you feel pain starting, use an ice pack for 20 minutes and repeat every...

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...
