Optimal Brain Health with The Drugless Doctors

dds2018.jpg

Hi Everyone!

Did you know that chiropractic is a secret weapon for optimal brain health? We have seen our practice member’s memory, ADHD, and more improve with the help of adjustments. In this month’s H2H, we go over the best nutrition for your brain and what lifestyle modifications you can start today for your brain’s health.

Facts About Your Brain!

1. Estimated 86 billion brain cells per brain

2. 25% of the body’s cholesterol is in the brain – it is an integral part of nervous system health.

3. The speed at which the brain sends messages to the body is about 268 mi/hr.

4. Low levels of omega 3 can be the equivalent to two years of brain aging.

5. Low fat diets can cause the brain to cannibalize itself.

Happy Brain = Healthy Lifestyle

1. Stable source of energy- protein (brain uses 20% of your energy, brain only is 2% total weight)

2. Nutrients- nourishing food (green leafy vegetables, rainbow colored and variety of vegetables)

3. Antioxidants- reduce oxidation; keeps the brain “clean”

4. EFA’S- protect the brain, decrease inflammation, and transmit messages

5. Water: drink ½ your body weight in oz. everyday of water (brain 78% water) thirsty=dull

6. Avoid: sugar, wheat, soy (takes minerals/zinc out of body)

7. Exercise- 30 minutes of exercise daily

8. Chiropractic- brain & body connection

9. Sleep- your goal is 7-8 hours of restful sleep.

Nutritional Support for Brain:

Coconut Oil- Use this in cooking as well as with butter and olive oil.

Vitamin D-Mulsion: Immune support, 2-3 drops on tongue until April

Essential Fatty Acids: Optimal EFA’s-Brain support, 3 capsules/day or 1 teaspoon/day

Li- Zyme Forte: Vegetable lithium, mental stress, depression, 3 tablets 3x/day

Bio B Complex: B vitamins, stress- 1-3/day with meals

Celtic Sea Salt: minerals get depleted during stress, use liberally on food, ¼ tspn. In H20

Cognitive Enhancer – higher brain function – one with a meal

*Please consider a consultation before starting a supplement routine

Have the Best Night's Sleep of Your Life!

#dds.jpg

Hi Everyone!

By raise of hands, who could use a better night’s sleep (and rest)? Well, for our monthly H2H, we uncover some of your most asked sleep questions. Below are our notes, video, and voice recording of the talk, perfect for your commute, or to listen right before bed. Enjoy, and have the best night's sleep of your life!

What is sleep and why do we need it? – One of the least understood areas of the human body

Sleep is a state, accentuating the growth and rejuvenation of the immune, nervous, skeletal, and muscular systems.  Sleep allows our bodies to shut down our conscious (thought) and voluntary muscles (used for movement). This allows our body to focus energy on cell growth and repair along with returning balance to our mental and physical state.

Our Top Tips!

- Make sleep a priority by keeping a consistent bedtime and wake schedule, including weekends.

- Create a bedtime routine that is relaxing we recommend reading a book because of how it allows your brain to relax, listening to soothing music or soaking in a hot bath.

- Create a room that is dark, quiet, comfortable and calm for the best possible sleep.

- Evaluate your mattress and pillow to ensure proper comfort and support. If your mattress is five to seven years old, it may be time for a new one. In general, pillows should be replaced every year.

- Keep work materials, electronics, including computers and televisions, out of the bedroom.

- Exercise regularly, but complete workouts at least two hours before bedtime.

- If you sleep with a partner, your mattress should allow each of you enough space to move smoothly. A queen mattress is ideal for two people sharing a mattress.

- Avoid eating, drinking alcohol, nicotine, and caffeine close to bedtime. These can lead to poor sleep, keep you awake or disrupt sleep later in the night.

The Drugless Approach to Anxiety and Depression

#dds.jpg

Hi Everyone!

Our March "Half-Hour to Health" was on a subject in which we have helped many of our practice members overcome with chiropractic and nutrition: Anxiety & Depression.

Below are our notes and the video with Dr. Bob. Please pass this on to anyone who you know can benefit!

The Drugless Approach to Anxiety and Depression

Why are we as Chiropractors talking about mental health?  

Brain & Nervous System – Current research is showing that chiropractic care alone can increase brain function by 20-50%!

How does someone’s mental health impact their body and current state of health?  

Humans are the only animals who regularly experience a stress response without an actual stressor present.

- How many adults have depression? Estimated that over 3 million American adults have depression

- How many adults have anxiety? Over 40 million adults over 18 have anxiety.

- Research shows 1 out of 7 U.S. children aged 2 to 8 years had a diagnosed mental, behavioral, or developmental disorder (MBDD), from CDC.

Depression:

1. Studies have repeatedly shown antidepressants work no better than placebo for mild to moderate depression, yet carry a significant risk of side effects.

2. Depression is likely the result of multiple environmental and biological factors, including faulty mood regulation by the brain, genetic vulnerability, stressful life events, nutrition, medications and medical problems, among others.

Anxiety

- What is it? Fear or nervousness of what might happen. Fear of the unknown?

- Body Signals: signs of apprehension, restlessness, upset stomach, shortness of breath, fatigue, insomnia, increase heart rate, sweating, and many others.

Best ways to combat anxiety and depression (NATURALLY):

A. Chiropractic

B. Omega 3 – (Optimal EFA, Bio-Omega 3, Flax Oil)

C. Magnesium

D. B Vitamins

E. Exercise

F. Clean Eating – vegetables, proteins, good fats

G. Gut Health

Upcoming Westlake Events:

April Half Hour to Health: How to improve your breathing and allergies naturally!

Weds. April 4th at NOON and Thurs. APRIL 5th at 6 PM – No registration required!

Monday April 16th @ 6PM- Create a breast health strategy!  Come learn more about a different approach to breast health and the innovative technology of Breast Thermography.

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.

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!

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
