October "Half-Hour to Health" | Women's Health

#dds.jpg

We're starting October off with our Women's Health H2H. Dr. Anthony and Dr. Casen are bringing us the most current trends in women's health, including how to prevent breast cancer, and how drugless care is a safe alternative. Below is the video of the class, and underneath that is the audio recording, in case you're driving! We also have plenty of community-wide events this month. Go here to view our calendar.

 

The Drugless Doctor’s Strategy for Healthy Breasts!

Why does this matter to you?

American Cancer Society 2017 stats- 1/8 women will develop breast cancer in their life time, 85 % of them with no risk factors, a woman’s risk DOUBLES if they have a first degree relative (sister, mother, grandmother).

1/3 women treated will be treated unnecessarily with mammograms- false positives, unnecessary procedures.

Why? 3rd leading cause of death in America today is MEDICAL ERROR (John Hopkins study 2016).

How our body works together- Liver & lymphatic system

What causes our body to be compromised?

Cancer is caused by changes in a cell's DNA – its genetic "blueprint." Some of these changes may be inherited from our parents, while others may be caused by outside exposures, which are often referred to as environmental factors. Environmental factors can include a wide range of exposures, such as:

1.    Lifestyle factors (nutrition, tobacco use, physical activity, etc.)

2.    Naturally occurring exposures (ultraviolet light, radon gas, infectious agents, etc.)

3.    Medical treatments (chemotherapy, radiation, immune system-suppressing drugs, etc.)

4.    Workplace exposures (chemicals, solvents, sprays, cleansers, vapors, air quality)

5.    Household exposures (herbicides, pesticides, paint vapors, gasoline other chemicals)

6.    Pollution (xenohormones or estrogens in water, herbicides, pesticides; also toxic air)

Action Steps

- Focus on green vegetables (decrease estrogen in your body).

- Breast Thermography &  Self-breast examination

- Avoid soy, soda, liver stressing meds and canned food; eat organic foods.

- Get another set of eyes on what is going on in your body

- Share this outline with a woman you LOVE!

Breast Thermography

A different approach to help you create a strategy of prevention and to stay healthy at any age. Our next date is November 10th, spaces are limited, call to schedule today with our team- 440-471-4200

Do you have a group, school, or business that is looking for a speaker for their event? Please call our office at 440-471-4200 to schedule or email drcasen@druglessdrs.com. We do lunch & learns, workshops, health fairs, and can tailor the talk to your needs.

#PreventSurgery Facebook Live Recap | Sleep Apnea

#dds.jpg

Hi Everyone!

Dr. Bob's September #PreventSurgery focus has been on sleep apnea and the steps you can take to help sleep soundly through the night. Below is the video recap, and if you're in the Northeast Ohio region, please join us October 4th at noon and October 5th at 6p at our Westlake location for our "Half-Hour to Health on Women's Health.

The Drugless Doctors | October Events

#dds.jpg

Each October, we witness our tree's leaves changing color, and more recently, many brands and organizations change their colors to pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Regardless if there's a ribbon involved, every woman we know wants to prevent breast cancer, but our hearts sink as we see women placed on the conventional merry-go-round with unnecessary procedures and protocols. It's also concerning when we ask our female practice members if they have a breast health strategy, they always ask "What do you mean?"

We’re here to tell you there is good news though! You can eliminate confusion and create a natural, breast health strategy by considering breast thermography. Our mission at The Drugless Doctors is to help everyone achieve their wellness goals by staying healthy without drugs and surgery. We invite you to click this link to learn more and consider receiving another perspective on what is truly happening in your body. We are here to help make a difference!

In-Office Specials

Receive 10% off nutrition to help improve women’s health, including Bio- B Complex which helps support healthy liver and hormonal function. Also, Iodizyme-Hp, is a great source of Iodine and can help with breast health, hormonal health, and immune function.

Women’s Health – October H2H

Our half-hour to health in October will be on Women’s Health. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about natural ways to help keep a female’s body at its peak performance, October 4th at Noon in our Westlake office and October 5th at 6 PM in our Westlake office. Please bring someone who has never heard about how chiropractic and natural health care can help kickstart your body.

Breast Thermography Returns!

Reserve your spot NOW for the next session on Friday, November 10th. Call 440-471-4200. See flyer below and read more here.

September "Half-Hour to Health" | Your Blood

#dds.jpg

We always try to bring the most relevant and timely health information to our practice members and digital community, and we kept on receiving requests to do a #H2H on blood sugar results. Please watch this month's recap below (Turn Up Volume). Underneath the video, you will find the audio recording (perfect for driving in the car) and Dr. A and Dr. C's notes. Please join us in October for our #H2H on Women's Health.

Audio Recording:

Nutrition 101 - What your blood tells you!

1. Why are a group of chiropractors talking about nutrition? Works hand & hand with chiropractic!

2. Nutrient toxicity vs nutrient deficiency

3. Stats: USDA -Using USDA data, found that broccoli, for example, had 130 mg of calcium in 1950. Today, that number is only 48 mg.

4. Well rounded lifestyle is the best nutrition – focusing on vegetables, proteins, and good fats.

5. Why would someone use supplements and what are the best kinds?

6. Wellness Nutrition vs Therapeutic Nutrition – Wellness is something that all people should do and therapeutic nutrition is based on some type of analysis or specific testing.

7. Our Top Wellness Items

A. Multiple Vitamin: (Bio-Multi Plus, Bio-Anabolic Pack, GlucoBalance, Bio–Glycozyme Forte) – multiple vitamins cover a wide range of possible issues.

B. Vitamin D: (Bio-D Mulsion Forte) Vitamin D is important for immune and bone health. Most Americans are deficient.

C. Essential Fatty Acids: Omega-3 – Good for the Brain – We recommend 3 capsules daily or one tbsp of oil per day. We rotate between Bio-Omega 3, Flax Oil, and Optimal EFA.

D. Probiotic: BioDoph 7 – cultures digestion with billions of good bacteria.

E. Immune Health: Agrisept and Bio-Immunozyme Forte.

What is a simple way to evaluate therapeutic nutrition?  Blood work – It’s the recipe for what is going on in our bodies!

Our Process

1. CBC with a differential – immune system, red blood cells, platelets, anemia’s

2. Comprehensive Metabolic Panel – evaluates many minerals, enzymes, sugars needed for common body functions such as digestion, acid base balance, and liver function.

3. Lipid Panel – evaluates fats and cholesterols in the body- brain and body need oils- the building blocks.

4. Thyroid Panel – Helps to assess metabolism in the body, body signals- temp, wt. loss, hormonal function, energy.

5. Urinalysis – Evaluates how our kidneys are procession the metabolites from digestion.

Other types of tests: HA1C, VIT D, TPO, Nutritional Microscopy, ACG, Bio-Communication, Test kits, EFA Bloodspot Test, Female Hormone Panels, saliva tests.

Drugless Action Steps:

- Receive nutrients from organic vegetables

- Focus on wellness and nutritional items

- Consider therapeutic testing for a personally designed strategy for your optimal health- find out your baseline

Sugar Facts:  1 teaspoon of sugar = 4.2 grams, 1 tablespoon of ketchup = 4 grams (around 1 teaspoon) of sugar.

1. AHA recommends not eating more than 24 grams or 6 teaspoons of added sugar per day for women and 36 grams or 9 teaspoons per day for men.  The average American consumes 30 teaspoons of sugar daily.

2.  2013 study found globally 180,000 die per year from sweetened beverage consumption.

3. 200 years ago Americans at 2 pounds of sugar per year, today however the average American consumes over 150 pounds of sugar in a year.
