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.

More Info On Our Specials

 

All Celtic Sea Salt products will be on special in office. (10%) Off

Selina Naturally Celtic Sea Salts are traditionally harvested to preserve their natural balance of minerals – a balance that fits ideally with the natural composition of the "natural salt water" that makes up as much as 60% of the human body.

According to H.H. Mitchell, Journal of Biological Chemistry 158, the brain and heart are composed of 73% water, and the lungs are about 83% water (May 2, 2016).

The composition of the minerals in the water of the body are, not only sodium, but a natural balance of potassium, calcium, magnesium, and a host of other essential minerals. In fact, it is the ionic charge across the cell wall between sodium and potassium, often referred to as the sodium pump that creates the electric charge that accounts for life itself.

Say "No" To The Flu Shot!

During this time of year, you will begin to see popular drugstore chains and even grocery stores promoting "Flu Shots Available Here" and other forms of communication to lure you into receiving an unnecessary procedure. We do not promote the flu shot ever, and as you can see, the current flu shot contains ingredients we never recommend. For a safe alternative, we suggest, Agrisept-L, which is sourced from lemon extract.

Here are some more reasons why our team #SMH:

Do You Know What’s in a Flu Shot?

Every year people are urged to get the flu shot. According to the media, the medical establishment and the government, we are facing a possible flu epidemic, the shot is safe and it saves lives. Let’s take a closer look at these statements.

How many people really get the flu?

Most people suffering from fever, fatigue, cough and aching muscles think they have the flu. They do not. Instead they have an “influenza-like illness” (ILI) associated with many different “germs” such as rhinoviruses, respiratory syncytial virus [RSV], adenoviruses, parainfluenza viruses,
Legionella spp., Chlamydia pneumonia, Mycoplasma pneumonia and Steptococcus pneumonia but NOT the flu virus.

In one study, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) found that only 17.1% of people who had flu symptoms actually had the flu. The remaining had an ILI. Why, if most flu-like illness is not associated with the flu virus, do we even need a flu shot?

Is the flu shot effective?

According to Sherri Tenpenny, DO, vaccine researcher, “The fact that the flu shots are ineffective in every age group hardly seems to matter to those who continually promote their use. Multiple studies published in highly reputable publications have documented that flu shots are
ineffective in all ages.”

How many people die from the flu?

You may have heard the flu kills about 36,000 Americans every year. That is simply not true. Government statistics lump flu and pneumonia deaths together, but flu deaths are only a small fraction of the total. For example, in 2002 when the flu plus pneumonia deaths were reported at
over 60,000, only 753 were flu deaths. In 2001 the total number of flu deaths was 267.

Does this justify giving a poorly tested and dangerous vaccine to millions of people?

The CDC states: “Seasonal influenza-related deaths are deaths that occur in people for whom seasonal influenza infection was likely a contributor to the cause of death, but not necessarily the primary cause of death. Only a small proportion of deaths are estimated to be influenza-related; only 8.5% of all pneumonia and influenza deaths and only 2.1% of all respiratory and circulatory deaths were influenza-related.”

-Flu shots contain mercury – a neurotoxin that damages brain and nerve cells

There are 25 micrograms of mercury per dose in many flu shots; five times the maximum amount judged sage by the CDC for a 110 lb. person. “More than 75% of Americans said a pregnant woman or a child should not get a mercury-laden flu shot,” said Lisa Handley of PutChildrenFirst.org whose son became autistic after a flu shot. This year’s flu vaccines still contain mercury in multi-dose vials.

Nobody really knows what this mixture of chemicals and microorganisms does in our bodies.
The Flu shot is linked to Alzheimer’s; according to Hugh Fudenberg, MD, the world’s leading immunogeneticist, the chances of getting Alzheimer’s is ten times higher if an individual has
had five consecutive flu shots. Dr. Fudenberg states that mercury in the shot causes the brain damage.

Dangerous and useless during pregnancy

Vaccinating mothers does not reduce respiratory illness in their newborns or infants. “Maternal influenza vaccination did not significantly affect infant outpatient and inpatient visits for acute respiratory illness.”

The American Academy of Pediatrics states “mercury in all of its forms is toxic to the fetus and children.” Yet pediatricians who tell pregnant women not to eat tuna to avoid mercury still recommend the mercury-laden flu shot even though mercury injected into the mother is able to cross the placental barrier and enter the fetus.

Flu shot for children?

In 1999, 25 children died from the flu in the entire United States. In 2000 that number decreased to 19, to 13 in 2001 and to 12 in 2002. The CDC began to push for flu shots for kids in 200. That year the number of flu deaths in children jumped to 90.

Shot damages the immune system

No one knows the long-term consequences of repeated influenza vaccinations – it’s never been tested (same with all vaccines). Repeated vaccination at a young age increases the risk of influenza in older age. This is possibly due to overall weakening of the immune system. However,
natural flu infection strengthens the immune system.

The Flu Shot Is Not Completely Tested

It is not known if flu vaccines can cause cancer, mutations, sterility, reproductive problems or fetal harm when given during pregnancy. It is also not known if flu vaccine is excreted in human milk.

Does the flu shot save lives among the elderly?

Even though immunization rates in those over 65 have increased 50% in the past 20 years researchers found no decline in flu-related deaths. Researchers report that studies “substantially” overestimate the vaccine’s benefit.

No Effect On Complications

A review of 50 reports that included 70,000 participants found that flu vaccination had no effect on hospital admissions or complication rates. The vaccine caused harm and Guillain-Barre Syndrome. “There is no evidence that they [flu vaccines] affect complications, such as pneumonia, or transmission….”

The Benefits of Symptoms

Hippocrates, the “Father of Medicine,” recognized the role symptoms play in the larger picture of health when he wrote, “Diseases are crises of purification, of toxic elimination. Symptoms are the natural defenses of the body. We call them disease, but in fact they are the cure of diseases.”
For example, flu sufferers who took aspirin or acetaminophen were sick 3.5 days longer than people who did not take the drugs.


The cleansing or detoxifying aspect of illness (fever, vomiting, diarrhea, sweating) may be why getting colds, flu and infectious disease has been associated with a decreased risk of cancer.
Researchers found that those who had febrile infectious childhood diseases have less cancer as adults, while another study revealed that “a history of common colds or influenza was associated with a decreased risk of stomach, colon, rectum and ovarian cancer.”

Don’t let fear tactics dictate your healthcare decisions. Make an informed choice!

Ingredients:

Mercury (thimerosal)-One of the most poisonous substances known. Has an affinity for the brain, gut, liver, bone marrow and kidneys. Minute amounts can cause nerve damage. Symptoms of mercury toxicity are similar to those of autism.

Formaldehyde (formalin)-Major component of embalming fluid; poisonous if ingested. Probable carcinogen; suspected gastrointestinal, liver, immune system, nerve, reproductive system and respiratory poison. Linked to leukemia, and brain, colon, sinus, nasopharynx and lymphatic
cancers.

Gentamicin sulfate & polymyxin b (antibiotics)-Allergic reactions can range from mild to life-threatening.*

Chicken embryos-The flu vaccine is made with fluids from chick embryos inoculated with specific type(s) of influenza virus. People who are allergic to these products (egg or chicken) or to any of the other ingredients in a vaccine can become seriously ill from the vaccination.

Sodium phosphate-Symptoms may include vomiting, lethargy, diarrhea, blood chemistry effects, heart disturbances and central nervous system effects; inflammation and pain on prolonged contact, especially with moist skin.
Gelatin-Produced from selected pieces of calf and cattle skins, demineralized cattle bones and pork skin. Allergic reactions have been reported.*

Polysorbate 80-Known to cause cancer in animals.

Neomycin sulfate (antibiotic)-Interferes with Vitamin B6 absorption. An error in the uptake of B6 can cause a rare form of epilepsy and mental retardation. Allergic reactions can be mild to life-threatening.*

Monosodium glutamate (msg/glutamate/glutamic acid)-May have mutagenic, teratogenic (developmental malformation and monstrosities) and reproductive effects. A neurotoxin. Allergic reactions can range from mild to severe.*

Sodium deoxycholate-Promotes tumors and damages DNA.

Octoxynol-10 (triton x-100) / octoxynol-9 (polyethylene glycol-p-isooctylphenyl ether; octylphenoxypolyethoxyethanol)-Spermicide (kills sperm). Can cause chills, confusion, dizziness, fever, lightheadedness, muscle aches, peeling of the skin. Causes severe eye irritation. Harmful if swallowed, inhaled or in contact with skin. Toxicology traces of ethylene oxide or dioxane, which are probable human carcinogens. Manufacturer’s website,
Calbiochem.com, states: FOR RESEARCH USE ONLY. NOT FOR HUMAN OR DRUG USE.

Beta propiolactone-Known to cause cancer. Suspected respiratory, gastrointestinal, liver, skin and sense organ poison. NOTE: Vaccine should not be administered to anyone with known systemic hypersentivity to any component of the vaccine.
*It is almost impossible to know in advance of exposure if a child or adult has an allergy.

November Product Specials: Agrisept

During the month of November, we have discounted one of our most popular products, Agrisept-L, 15% in our office (only). Here are some of the ways Agrisept keeps you healthy not only during the cooler months, but throughout the year: 

Naturally Boosting Your Immune System

We are entering the time of year where we are beginning to see cooler temperatures, which means, it's also time to start thinking about ways to keep your immune system strong in order for you to not get sick! Here are a list of ways you can do so naturally, including nutrition we recommend to all of our practice members during this season.

How To: improve Immune Function

1. What is the Immune System and why is it important? – The immune system helps to keep our body free of harmful substances that might enter our body. There are a variety of different factors that go into a strong immune system. Your immune system works closely with the nervous system and the hormonal system that is in our body.

2. Flu Shots – We do not promote flu shots.

A. Flu shots are educated guesses

B. Harmful additives in the flu shot include: formaldehyde (a known carcinogen), polysorbate 80, MSG, Potassium phosphate, Mercury, Polyoxidonium, squalene, and aluminum

C. Reactions to the flu vaccine include: Life-threatening allergies to various ingredients, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, Encephalitis (brain inflammation), neurological disorders, and thrombocytopenia.

D. On the package of a flu vaccine from their 2009-2010 formula the label read " FLULAVAL is an influenza virus vaccine indicated for active immunization of adults 18 years of age and older against influenza disease caused by influenza virus subtypes A and type B contained in the vaccine. This indication is based on immune response elicited by FLULAVAL, and there have been no controlled trials demonstrating a decrease in influenza disease after vaccination with FLULAVAL.”

E. Flu vaccination does not promote healthy immune function

F. Healthy people 2020, requiring health care providers to take flu shots against their will in order to maintain funding.

G. Studies from Canada showing people are more likely to get the flu the year after they were vaccinated verses not being vaccinated at all.

H. Don’t get bullied into a flu shot – talk to a health care provider, even contact Alan Philips vaccine attorney to explore other options.

How To: Boost Your Immune System

1. Get adjusted! - Chiropractic care works the closes with the nervous, hormonal, and immune system.

2. Avoid Sugar at all costs – sugar stops are immune system from being able to help take on foreign invaders in our body. This is a major reason why people get sick around the Holiday season.

3. Avoid Stress – Chronic stress will deplete the immune system and can keep us prone to becoming sick.

Supplements That Boost Immune Function

1. Agrisept- Boosts your immune system by taking on harmful bacteria, fungus, and yeast that may be present in the body. Very simply take ten drops in a glass of water every day to help boost immune function.

2. RxA and RxP Defense – The "A" stands for Acute and "P" is for chronic. The acute defense is an herbal blend that is very powerful at helping your body’s immune system fight what is taking place in the body. The chronic defense is very helpful at taking care of a cold that is lingering and doesn’t seem to go away. The acute defense should be taken 2 every waking hour until the bottle is gone. We have had many people have positive success stories with this product.

3. Bio D-mulsion – Vitamin D is an important factor when it comes to make sure immune function is up to par. Research shows that adequate levels of vitamin D help keep your immune system functioning properly. Proper use is to take one drop on your tongue daily (2000 IU). Liquid Vitamin D is absorbed better by the body verses in capsule form.

4. Bio-Immunozyme Forte - A unique, broad-spectrum multiple designed to specifically support normal, healthy immune function. It provides a wide array of vitamin, mineral, botanical, amino acid and organ/glandular specific support. 2-3 capsules 3x a day with meals.

5. Bio-FCTS - A broad spectrum bioflavonoid product fortified with vitamin C and providing glandular/organ specific support. Among their functions, bioflavonoids act as antioxidants, help to stabilize vitamin C, and support immune health. This is particualrlly helpful with viral and bacterial infections. 2-3capsules 3x a day with meals.

6. Zinc – Zinc is an important mineral when it comes to immune function. Protocol for taking zinc is to start with taking a capful of aqueous zinc daily until a bitter metallic flavor appears. Once it is present us Zn-Zyme tablets 1 to 3 per day.

7. Olive Leaf – Olive leaf is an herbal formula derived from the leaves of olives trees. Olive leaf has shown to have tremendous anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties.

8. URI Formula – This is an herbal blend supplement that is designed specifically for Upper Respiratory Infections and helps support those tissues on the road to recovery.

Action Steps

1. Make changes to the amount of sugar we are consuming on a daily basis.

2. Do something to support Immune function. By being proactive on our health we set ourselves up for success.

3. Educate ourselves on the flu vaccine to know what it is, the ingredients that are in it and some of the harmful effects of the flu vaccination.

Product Spotlight: Vitamin D & Iodine

We commonly see practice members who are often deficient in a few key nutrients including vitamin D and iodine. Below we have a description on why each is important, as well as a video from Dr. Casen.

Bio D Mulsion Forte (Vitamin D) – Vitamin D is an essential nutrient for the body. It is extremely important in the winter time in order to promote better immune function. You can protect yourself from the flu by having an adequate amount of Vitamin D. People that live in the Midwest who don’t get direct sun in the fall, winter, and spring should supplement with Vitamin D. We use a liquid Vitamin D that absorbs better in the body. The recommendation on that product is 1-2 drops on your tongue daily.

Iodizyme – Iodine is an element that is important for proper thyroid and hormonal health. People that have concerns about thyroid function should consult with their healthcare provider in order to be tested for adequate levels of Iodine. Iodine can help people who suffer with seasonal depression or fall allergies.

Product Spotlight: Rapid Immune Response

The season which we are currently in, late-fall, pre-winter, is often a time filled with travel, weather patterns that can't seem to make up their their minds, and the phrase, "it's going around." In order for you to prevent being an "it's going around" casualty, our entire team recommends Gaia Herbs' Rapid Immune Response. This month we are offering it for 10% off at our physical locations only. Dr. Anthony shares more about the product's benefits:


Our November Office Focus: Your Immune System

The weather for much of the US is fluctuating between temperatures that can be warm one day, and then cold the next. If your immune system is not functioning at an optimal level, your body can be vulnerable to sickness. This month at both of our practices, our goal is to help build up your immune system, especially since there will be traveling, and the prior-mentioned weather changes. One of the products we recommend because we have seen the results first-hand is Gaia Herbs' Rapid Immune Response (Product Info below). It's good to have a bottle (or two) on your shelf and begin to take two an hour when you first feel symptoms of a cold until it's gone. Also, we are offering it for 10% off in our practices only.
