Hi Everyone! 

Thank you for joining us for our monthly Half-Hour to Health (H2H). We want you to enjoy freedom from stress, and as much as we are aware that life that throw us curve balls, there are steps that we can take to remove unnecessary stress from our life. Take the quiz below and watch our recap, too!

Take the quiz!

1. Do you feel like you are not yourself?

2. Do you feel overwhelmed?

3. Do you feel unable to cope with the workload that you used to be able to handle?

4. Do you often feel anxious, angry, irritable,  or tense?

5. Do you get headaches or stiffness/tension in your muscles, jaw, or back?

6. Do you feel unable to concentrate or remember things well?

7. Do you frequently experience an upset stomach, skin rashes, racing heartbeat, or sweaty palms?

8. Are you more tired or do you have a lower energy level than usual?

9. Do you lack interest in things that used to interest you?

10. Do you have trouble sleeping?

11. Are you using alcohol or drugs to escape problems?

If you answered yes to more than one of these questions you may be exhibiting signs of stress overload.  When you are overloaded with stress your bodies nervous system cannot express your fullest potential. Stress decreases the bodies ability to heal as it was intended! 

What causes stress to the body & why are we talking about it?

Thoughts/Traumas/Toxins

1. Environment-pollution, weather, toxins from the genetically modified foods, chemicals in foods/products.

2. Social- finances, jobs, demands for your time and attention, loss of loved ones…

3. Physiological- aging, lack of exercise, poor nutrition, inadequate sleep…

4. Thoughts- your brain interprets changes in your environment/body and determines when to turn on the “EMERGENCY” response.  Your thoughts determine your reality! Change your thoughts change your world!

 Action Steps:

1. Use Celtic Sea Salt as a source of minerals- B,L,D  1/4tsp in 20 oz water.

2. Minimize and eliminate sugar that depletes body of minerals (journal)

3. Evaluate stressors in your life and develop a plan to manage them better

February "Half-Hour to Health" | Prevent Cancer

#dds.jpg

Hi Everyone!

This month, our H2H was on the steps you can take to prevent cancer. Many of us have had someone who has been, or even ourselves, affected by some cancer, but did you know that there are preventable steps that you can take? Here is our outline from the talk - please listen to the audio recording below, and share with the people in your world who you know can benefit!

How to Prevent Cancer

- A hundred years ago, one in 80 Americans were diagnosed with cancer. Currently, WHO (World Health Organization) estimates 1 in 2 men, and 1 in 3 women will get diagnosed with cancer.

- Journal of Nature January 2016- 90% of all cancer related to environment and lifestyle choices.

- The average cost of any cancer treatment in the traditional model is 50k per episode.

Top Prevention Strategies

Food – Minimize carbs, sugar, and dairy – these sugars can cause the body to be a breeding ground for cancer.

Eat Organic & Non-GMO – Herbicides and pesticides compromise how your body heals.

Stay Thin – Being overweight is a significant risk factor in leading towards developing cancer/estrogen.

Supplement with Vitamin D – Supports apoptosis – the study shows one year of supplementing with vitamin D can reduce all cancer by 77%. It works by also pulling Ca++ from the intestine/glues membranes together

Minimize Toxic Exposure – This can be from an occupation or through chemicals utilized in the home.

Healthy Liver Function – Detox, castor oil pack, Livotrit, milk thistle, minimize alcohol and sugar consumption. You want to have a daily bowel movement—not every other day or so.

Happy Immune System – Having a healthy immune system will help to fight cancer. No sugar.

A. Chiropractic  B. Agrisept C. Vitamin D

Good Lymphatic System – Helps the immune system and is like the sanitation workers of the body

A. Rebound on a ball  B. Lymph Detox C. IAG D. Lymph massage

Apply one to two drops of liquid Iodine to the breasts daily. Men take 12 mg of iodine daily.

A. The urine iodine loading test is an excellent tool as is a Thyroid Profile.

Drink water - Hydrated red blood cells have more surface area and carry more oxygen

Optimal Spinal function correlates to Optimal Nervous System function; be the healthiest on earth!

The best way to beat cancer is by being healthy and staying healthy!

A great way to have a cancer check is breast thermography.

Next Breast Thermography Session: May 1st or May 4th - info@druglessdrs to schedule.

Next H2H: March 7th at Noon and March 8th at 6p

Topic: DRUGLESS APPROACH TO ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION



 

January "Half-Hour to Health" | Weight Loss & Detoxification

#dds.jpg

Hi Everyone!

We are beginning 2018 with our annual #DruglessDetox, and that was the topic for our monthly "Half-Hour to Health." There are also plenty of opportunities to join us in the Cleveland community this month, go here to visit all of our events.

To view the notes of this talk, please scroll down and send any of your questions to askdrbob@druglessdoctor.com which will be answered in an upcoming video.

Top Five Keys to Weight Loss

Food – makes all the difference. If you don’t put the right fuel in your body, you don’t get the correct outcome.

- The top foods to avoid: sugar (or things that turn to sugar in your body), dairy, and grains.  Inflammation.

Become Calorie Conscious - It is not necessary to count each calorie but to cut out additional “fru fru” calories.

Make Exercise Fun – Doing some exercise for 20-60 minutes every day is vital for weight loss.

Breakfast is the Essential Meal – Start your day with protein.

Discipline – Stay away from things that you know don’t promote health in your body.

Top Five Keys to Detoxification

Detox Starts with the Liver – The liver is the critical organ for detoxification. Signs of the liver being compromised: enlarged liver on x-ray, skin challenges, age spots, bronzing on the cheeks, dark circles under eyes, cry easy, bad body odor, fatigue, brain fog, prostate or hormonal challenges.

Environmental Toxins – Our environment is very toxic, air is polluted,  food sources have preservatives and are sprayed with herbicides and pesticides, household cleaning products, chlorine, and fluorine.  A recent study in The Journal Nature has 90% of cancers are caused by DIET and ENVIRONMENTAL TOXINS.

Stay Away From Fruit/Fructose – It is the hardest sugar for the liver to get rid of.

Remove Excess Estrogen in the Body – Increased estrogen in men and women will lead to health challenges and cancer.

Water - Water helps our bodies eliminate toxins. (Half your body weight in ounces of water is the goal.)

What is the Drugless Detox?  

This is a program that was designed to help clean up liver and digestive tract function.  It is composed of three products.  Bio Detox packs – this is a group of 10 products designed to clean up liver function.  Nutriclear is a very useful way to help clean up the liver and promote healing in the digestive tract. Pea Protein or Pumpkin Protein allows the building blocks for new growth in the body.  This is a program that is designed to be done in 10 days (3 detox packs a day) or 30 days (1 pack a day).  We have had members continue this on for 1-3 months because of how terrific they felt!

Detox Program

Bio-Detoxification is designed to reduce your body’s load of toxic substances, which may be present from either external sources (drugs, chemicals, alcohol) or your own physiological activities (bacterial toxins, intestinal toxins, metabolic byproducts). By following this program, you will eliminate many foods and metabolic toxins for allergens, and achieve more “healthy” function and vitality.

Benefits:

Increase immune function, increase liver function which is essential for weight loss and hormonal function, improved mental cognition, improved energy, improved digestion, decreased joint and body pain.

What should I eat during the ten-day detoxification program?

Focus on proteins and vegetables and work on eliminating fruits, grains, gluten, and sugar.  Make sure to drink plenty of water during your detoxification process.

Q. Should I expect any side effects?

A. Individual response to cleansing programs is highly variable due to personal differences in biochemical makeup, stress levels, toxin build-up, and medical histories. Individuals sometimes experience headaches, joint pain, mood swings, constipation or other side effects. These side effects are commonly associated with cleansing programs and usually, dissipate within a week to 10 days. Notify your healthcare professional if you develop any adverse symptoms, or encounter discomfort while using this product.

Important Factors to Consider

1. Water – Drinking the proper amount of water helps our body get rid of the toxins that the body is working on excreting.  A good benchmark is to consume half of our body weight in ounces of water every day

2. Eat Right – It is essential to consume foods that allow our body to detoxify correctly which means focusing on vegetables and proteins and decreasing fruits, sugar, and gluten.

3. Rest – Especially when going through a period of detoxification it is vital for our bodies to get at the very minimum 8 hours of sleep at night so our body can process the toxins it is eliminating

4. Decrease exposure to environmental, industrial, and household chemicals.  These chemicals get stored in our body and have many harmful effects on the body and nervous system.

5. Exercise- movement is life.  Have a pattern of everyday exercise for yourself- this will promote elimination of toxins.

Our Next Breast Thermography date in office Tuesday, Jan 30th in the AM And Friday, February 2nd.

Space is very limited – get scheduled with our team today.
