Topic: Helping You Sleep Through The Night!
Join us for a short talk on how to improve your natural sleep cycle
One of the most common body organs will help on a daily basis is the liver, whether it be a fatty liver, or congested from years of eating poorly. In this month's Facebook Live, Dr. Bob shares how to help keep your liver performing optimally, including the best foods you can eat. Enjoy!
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

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!
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!
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.

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.
