4 Easy Steps: Declare Your Independence From Pain

4 Easy Steps: Declare Your Independence from Pain “My back for no apparent reason was so painful.  I couldn’t move.  After two days in bed a friend recommended I see Dr. Rosenfeld.  I could barely drive or sit when I came in.  This had happened several times in the past.   A medical doctor had given me muscle relaxers only.  They weren’t all that helpful. I experienced miraculous results after visiting Dr. Rosenfeld.  I am able to do more than before in movement and strength with no pain. My whole outlook each day is more positive and I feel more energized.” GM Use RICE method–Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation—for initial 24-72 hours after an injury.  Ice for 20 min about every hour or two. Then alternate: heat 10 min, ice 10 min, heat 10 min.  Eat a diet rich in whole, unprocessed foods emphasizing magnesium and calcium foods found in: kale, collard greens, almonds, blackberries, mustard greens, oatmeal, oranges, navy beans and sunflower seeds.  Avoid or limit foods that contribute to acidity such as refined sugars, caffeine, salty foods and alcohol.  Limit foods high in saturated fats, including red meats, dairy products, warm-water shellfish and partially-hydrogenated oil. Drink chlorophyll-rich, green drinks, such as extracts of wheat grass.  Eat more fatty fish (mackerel, herring and salmon) and preferably wild. Decrease animal fat consumption as it is a primary source of arachidonic acid, a precursor of a number of inflammatory prostaglandins.  Identify and avoid food allergens. We have specific tests to check for food allergies. Calcium and Magnesium relax the muscles.  Analgesic Herbs: Chamomile, Skullcap, Passion Flower, Kava Kava and White Willow Bark are sedative...

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...

Green is NOT ONLY for St Patrick’s Day

GREEN IS NOT ONLY FOR ST. PATRICK’S DAY Are you interested in loosing weight or just staying in shape?  Eating green vegetables are filling, extremely nutritious and very low in calories.  In the amounts commonly consumed, green leafy vegetables provide an abundance of roughage or fiber, which is an important component of a healthful diet.  The greener the leaf, the higher the carotene content.   Carotene from leafy vegetables is more readily absorbed and utilized than that from yellow ones.  Fresh vegetable leaves are also good sources of vitamin C, unfortunately, much of this ascorbic acid is often lost before consumption, through oxidation and leaching during preparation.  Though little carotene is lost in cooking, portions of water-soluble vitamins and appreciable quantities of iron, magnesium, and phosphorus may be lost if the cooking water of leafy vegetables is discarded. On a calorie by-calorie-basis, green vegetables contain significantly more fiber than whole grains.  As an example:  2 slices of whole-wheat bread –about 140 calories, 4 gms of fiber, 140mgs of potassium vs 2 cups of broccoli—87 calories, 9 gms of fiber, 1,000mgs of potassium. Although it is recommended to consume a minimum of 25-30gms/day the average American consumes 15 gms of fiber/day.  Diets low in fiber may underlie or exacerbate constipation, appendicitis, hemorrhoids, deep-vein thrombosis, varicose veins, diverticulitis, hiatal hernia and gastroesophageal reflux.  Fiber is thought to help prevent colon cancer, diabetes and heart disease. Promoting good health includes the necessity to eat potassium-rich foods which are vegetables and fruits primarily, as well as animal protein and potatoes.  Research recommends 7,000-11,000mg of potassium/day which should come from your diet.  However, the average...

Is It All In Your Bones?

  Is It All In Your Bones? Osteoporosis is a progressive decrease in bone density, which develops when bone breaks down faster than it can be rebuilt. Women and the elderly are at a high risk. It affects 1 out of 3 women and 1 out of 5 men over the age of 50. Some bone facts Our peak bone mass is achieved by the time we are about 30.  Age related bone loss is .5-1% per year and post- menopause can advance to 1-3% per year. Small boned & low weight women are more susceptible to bone loss.  Having a diagnosis of osteoporosis does not mean active bone loss is occurring.  Therefore, there are 2 ways to find out: 1. Have 2 bone density exams from the same machine and compare correctly. 2. Have a lab work-up that includes bone markers or other tests to include parathyroid and kidneys to find out why the bone loss is occurring. Signs and Symptoms of Osteoporosis Usually symptoms are not present – Spontaneous bone fractures – Painful bones – Severe backache – Curvature of the spine  What are some of the causes of osteoporosis? Parathyroid problems Excess alcohol consumption Kidney stones/kidney disorders Food allergies Poor absorption of calcium in the gut due to decreased digestive function (i.e. decreased HCl) or pancreatic enzymes) or inadequate levels of vitamin D. HCl and vitamin D are required for calcium absorption. Hormonal imbalance (i.e. menopause) Decreased estrogen and progesterone levels; these hormones play a key role in building bone. Estrogen aids in decreasing bone loss by slowing bone break down, but doesn’t build bone. Progesterone...
