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!

Supplementing for Seasonal Changes

Did you know your body has different needs throughout the year? One way to preventing sickness is to build up your immune system and in the following blog, from our sister-site, Dr. Bob shares his best tips during the changing of the seasons:

This is the time of year when people who tend to be deficient in iodine tend to have the most challenges; cold ache in the bones with the first hint of mid 30 to 40 degree temperature with a congested chest and runny nose. If you are experiencing joint pain and are uncomfortable in the cold temperatures you may want to have your serum thyroid panel and vitamin D3 levels assessed. We can send a kit anywhere in the world; you would want a TSH, T3, T4 and TPO and vitamin D. If your T4 result is less than the midline (actually 8 or less) I would recommend at least 6 mg or ½ tablet of Iodizyme-HP™ per day for two weeks then take one per day forever. I personally take 12 mg of iodine every day.

The thyroid gland is affected by seasonal changes. It is the main regulator of your metabolism and your ability to handle the cold and different temperatures. Nearly one-third of all the patients and worldwide clients we consult with or treat have a thyroid gland that is not functioning properly. Over the years, countless people come into the office with a part of the thyroid removed or on a thyroid medication. Thyroid function is important and could be compromised from chlorine in the pool or shower and bromine from the hot tub; review your summer and supplement accordingly.

You want your vitamin D3 level to be at least 40. Vitamin D is very important in preventing colds and flu during the winter. I personally take two to three drops of D Mulsion Forte™ every day during the fall through May. Vitamin D helps manage blood pressure, diabetes, bone strength and your immune system. The combination of vitamin D and iodine are some of the most important supplements necessary for Optimal Fall/Winter health. It is time to take charge and be proactive. Make this Fall and Winter your best yet and come visit us so we can help you!
