A Drugless Approach to Anxiety and Depression

Hi Everyone!

May is Mental Health Month and we our H2H was on helping anxiety and depression. Below are our notes and corresponding video. We also have in-office specials which you can view below.

Why are we as Chiropractors talking about mental health?

Current research is showing that chiropractic care alone can increase brain function by 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? Over 6.8 million American adults have an anxiety disorder.

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

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

1. What is it? Fear or nervousness of what might happen.

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

Some of the best ways to combat anxiety and depression:

A. Chiropractic- Brain and body connection

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.
