This year has been incredible so far helping current and new practice members achieve their health goals. We have some important updates for you this month (please see below), and a “H2H” you won’t want to miss!Read More
Every day, we are witnessing the need from our female practice members to achieve optimal breast health. This is why we had a special talk at our Westlake practice on how to create a strategy, including breast thermography. Below is the video recap of the event - please feel free to share it with anyone who you know can benefit.
Also, breast thermography will be returning in a few weeks (May 4th and May 8th) Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your appointment, since time slots are limited.
This month (and this season), we want you not to say “It’s my allergies” or “My allergies are working up.” Instead, we are outlining what you can do to PREVENT allergies from happening while improving your breathing ability. With this month’s H2H, Dr. A and Dr. C will share just how to do that. Below, we have our notes, video, and audio recording, if you want to listen to us while in your car or while exercising.
How To: Improve Your Breathing & Allergies Naturally
What frustrates you about your allergies and breathing?
-Decreases quality of life, can't go outside, itchy eyes, sneezing, coughing, lower immune system
There is even a place on the weather map that looks at allergies, colds, and flu season. “Should you go outside today?”
Imagine if …. You could go outside WITHOUT having challenges! What would that look like for you?
The CAUSE of your problem:
A. Misalignment of the spine changes the messages that the brain sends to the body getting adjusted clears sinuses.
A. Covers up the symptoms
B. Terrible side effects
A. Improper digestion and consumption of the wrong foods are one of the leading causes of allergies/ inflammation.
4. Immune system
A. Subpar immune function can also contribute to allergies.
5. Adrenal fatigue AKA stress
A. Are you tired? Even after sleeping a full night? Does bright light bother your eyes? Do you crave salt?
B. All of these are signs that your adrenals need some help to fight off allergies.
A. Food sensitivities of the person that can be causing the challenge.
B. Have a food stressor to evaluate if there are foods that may be contributing to the problem.
1. Have your brain & spine assessed by a chiropractor to determine subluxations!
2. Go to the root of the issue: Your Nervous System
-Clean up digestion
-Address food sensitivities
Supplements that can help:
Histoplex AB – A significant help to those suffering from allergies – boosts the body’s inborn way of fighting allergies.
AHF – helps eliminate the source of histamine so that allergies do not occur, chronic allergies

Spring can be a miserable time of the year for allergy sufferers. If that is you or someone that you love to consider utilizing Histoplex AB and AHF. Both of these products are designed to help the body handle the effects of allergens.

Recently we started utilizing a new product from Biotics Research, which is a fifteen-day cleanse that is designed to help clean up digestion and detoxify the body. This is a great cleanse to do to get the spring started happy and healthy. The cleanse will be 10% off all month.
That's it - let's have a great April!

Dr. Bob & Team
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.
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.
- 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):
B. Omega 3 – (Optimal EFA, Bio-Omega 3, Flax Oil)
D. B Vitamins
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.
Help us reach our community! Who do you know that would benefit from this information? Do you have a business that would be interested in having us speak? Contact us, firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule us for your next event.
We always love connecting with our global audience on Facebook. Our February focus was on adrenal health, specifically the information from "Dr. Bob's Guide to a Healthy Marriage." In the video recap, Dr. Casen and I share the importance of taking care of your adrenals, stress and the adrenal gland, and a lot more.
We're also excited for our March 2018 H2H, which is going to be March 7 at noon, and March 8 at 6p at our Westlake practice on the topics of anxiety and depression. Our hope with this class is to help anyone who is looking to reverse these conditions with safe and natural alternatives. We hope to see you there!
We're (hopefully) in winter's final stretch, but who knows what Cleveland has up their sleeve, right? Regardless, we have a great month planned, including our Half-Hour to Health on March 7th at noon and March 8th at 6p, both at our Westlake practice.
This month will be focusing on a drugless approach to anxiety and depression. Did you know over 40 million Americans have symptoms of these two conditions? Our core focus in chiropractic is to help your brain work properly with the body. We also provide additional support with personalized nutrition, which we will go into more detail at our March H2H.
Li-Zyme Forte – This is a vegetable-based lithium product. It is especially helpful in balancing out our neurochemistry and can have a relaxing effect on the body especially in times of severe stress and anxiety.
Celtic Sea Salt – ALL Products on specials – Celtic Sea Salt is a beneficial blend of mineral salt that helps provide the body with the nutrients that it would not get on its own. Most people misunderstand salt and think it is not healthy. However, Celtic Sea Salt is the opposite; our body needs salt and what better way to get it than its most natural form.
Hair Analysis: In-Depth
Have you ever considered getting a hair analysis? This test provides a mineral blueprint of your biochemistry, metabolic rate, energy levels, sugar and carbohydrate tolerance, stage of stress, immune system and glandular activity. If you are interested in having this test done, please touch base with the team or doctors at your next office visit.
March 7 - H2H @ Westlake Office. 12 pm. Topic: A Drugless Approach To Anxiety and Depression!
March 8 - H2H @ Westlake Office. 6 pm. Topic: A Drugless Approach To Anxiety and Depression!
March 13 - Dr. Bob @ French Creek YMCA Community Room. 1-2pm. Topic: How to Detox Naturally.
Mar 15 - Faster Results Workshop 6 pm - Helping our members get the fastest results in and outside the office @ Westlake office
Lastly, do you have a business or organization that could benefit from hearing a personalized talk about health? Having subpar health in an organization is one of the leading causes of lack of production and happiness as a group. \If you are interested in having our team do a presentation on a variety of topics including: stress, energy, eating well on a budget and many more, please contact email@example.com!
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
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
We wrapped up January with our Facebook Live on your thyroid, and how an unbalanced thyroid can actually impact your marriage. We also gave an overview about our Breast Thermography procedure which we will be having regularly this year. Lastly, please join us February 7/8 at our Westlake practice for our H2H on Preventing Cancer. Have a great February!

To view the notes of this talk, please scroll down and send any of your questions to email@example.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!
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.
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.
