DAWC040 Listener Questions on Wellness

Listener Questions Episode 1 – Dr. Andy Responds to questions listeners emailed through the week…

Listener Questions Episode 1 – Don’t miss this amazing episode of Dr. Andy’s Wellness Corner.  In this episode, Dr. Andy compiles a list of listener questions emailed to him over the past weeks.  In fact he addresses each question thoroughly and accurately.  He also cites the source of his research for each answer.

In fact some of these questions reveal the risk of a medical emergency.  If you or a family member suffers in a similar way, you may want to listen in so you can go to the emergency room if necessary.  Other questions compare and contrast medical opinions versus natural opinions.  Still other questions relate to women’s health and her cycle.  In addition, other questions deal with mental health and digestion.

Dr. Andy gives a very detailed answer to each question.  He also outlines the inner workings of each solution detailing how they work, why they work and the research behind them.  He also goes into the differences between the chiropractic and medical education, and why each is an expert in their own field.  However medical education on nutrition is very limited and lacking compared to other health care professions.

Another listener asks why some MD’s are more “pushy” about medicine than others.  Your host, Andy Marrone, D.C. goes into a number of probably causes.  Additionally, he even relates his own experience when he was working in his dad’s office as a file clerk at a much younger age.  Yes, His dad is an MD.

About Dr. Andy

His extensive knowledge of enzyme nutrition has made him a much sought after practitioner. Do you suffer from health problems that nobody seems to have the answer to?  Are you sick and tired of the revolving door approach of modern medicine?  Give Dr. Marrone a call to set up a consultation.

Who are the Nutrition Experts?

Nutrition Experts – It never fails.  I’m consulting with someone in my office about enzyme nutrition.  I tell the basics on how enzymes work, and why they are vital to nutrition and health.  Everything I tell them is medical fact.  In fact, you can find the information in any physiology textbook.  Then I hear the almighty words “Let me run this by my medical doctor…”

Nutrition Experts – Ah yes, the almighty ever known M.D.  Before I delve into the differences between chiropractic and medical education, I need to be clear.  Medical doctors are experts in their field.  In fact they are well educated in that field.  I want to be sure I don’t take anything away from that.  However, they are NOT experts in nutrition.

Before I get into that, let me compare the chiropractic course work to that of the medical field.  Did you know we use the same textbooks?  We both study the same anatomy text book, the same physiology textbook, the same biochemistry textbook, and the same disease text book.    Where our education differs, however is in several areas.  First, medical doctors spend more time studying disease and traumatic injuries.  That makes sense as the bulk of their care is crisis care.

Chiropractors, however, spend way more time studying spinal movement, neurology, radiology and nutrition.  In fact the average medical doctor receives about 19.6 hours of nutrition.  I, on the other hand have studied over 200 post graduate hours on nutrition.  This information comes from American Medical Student Association), in collaboration with The Pew Charitable Trusts.  Again, M.D.’s are experts in their field, and no one is taking that away from them.  However, when it comes to nutrition, who is the nutrition experts?

Consult the Nutrition Experts

Medicine Validates Chiropractic

Medicine Validates Chiropractic

Medicine Validates Chiropractic – Do you suffer from chronic back, low back or neck pain?  Have you been avoiding the chiropractor because of the negative press?  Did you know that chiropractic is safe, effective and natural?  In fact research from JAMA, the Journal of the American Medical Association validates this.

Yes, it’s true, medicine validates chiropractic.  I hope you’re sitting down.  In case you didn’t know, chiropractic uses specific corrections to correct spinal bones.  The purpose is to restore spinal alignment.  This improves posture, movement, decreases muscle spasms, and restores health.  And while it also helps with pain, chiropractic is about more than pain.  It takes pressure off of vital nerves so your body can work properly.  In fact, less than 8% of the nerves in your body deal with pain.  The other 92% control every function in your body.  The research shows that a very high percentage of people under chiropractic care not only had lower pain levels, but improved function as well.

In fact, pain reduction was 91% and functional improvement was just over 70%.  That’s higher than just about any other treatment type.  JAMA published this research recently; April 11th, 2017.  However, along with the research JAMA ALSO included an article as to why Medical Doctors were hesitant to refer to chiropractors.  Mainly because science still cannot explain why it works.  Of course, this is according to the MD’s.  I have tons of research showing how this amazing treatment works.  However, even if the mechanism behind chiropractic isn’t clear, research shows it still works.  In fact scientists fail to understand why many medications work, or what causes certain diseases.  That, of course doesn’t invalidate them.

A Complete Approach

At Redmond Ridge Nutrition & Chiropractic we use a unique combination of specific corrective adjustments.   We skillfully perform traditional or low force care, gentle traction, home exercises and enzyme nutrition.  The purpose is to improve all of the tissues causing your problem for a more complete solution.  Of course it’s also vital to support healthy tissue repair, which is where enzyme nutrition comes in.  In fact we will never perform a chiropractic adjustment on you that is either unsafe, or makes you feel uncomfortable.

Do you suffer from neck, back or low back pain?  Does it affect your work, family life or active lifestyle?  If so, give us a call and set up a consultation.  I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life.  I will even do some preliminary testing as well as Bio Impedance Analysis, which is trusted by both NASA and Cancer Treatment Centers of America.  This will help me determine if you are a good candidate for care.  If you’re not, we’ll make every effort to provide the proper referral.

Enzymes help Asthma, Research Shows

Enzymes help Asthma, Research Shows – Do you suffer from asthma?  Does it stifle your active lifestyle?  Sadly, up until now you could only manage the symptoms.  And while that’s super important, new research supports the use of enzymes to help with asthma.

Enzymes help Asthma.  According to the CDC, asthma affected over 26 and a half million Americans in 2010.  According to the Asthma foundation it has been on the rise since the 1970’s.    That’s about 17% of Americans, or one in 5 or 6.  That’s also about a 25% increase since 2001.  It is projected to increase by over 30% by 2030.

Sadly, modern medicine can only manage the symptoms, or respond to an attack.  Now I’m not understating the importance of that.  An asthma attack can be lethal, so when it flares up, intervention can save your life.  As always, I am very grateful for modern medicine’s ability to handle crisis care.  However, that seems to be all they can do.

Asthma is An Allergic Attack

Asthma is basically your body’s immune system overreacting to an allergen.  When this happens, certain immune cells go into overdrive.  This leads to inflammation, and constriction of the airways in the lungs making breathing very difficult.  It can also worsen with exertion.  In fact 3 out of 5 asthma sufferers are forced to limit their physical activity because it could risk a serious flare up.  Additionally, nearly 1 in 2 children miss at least a day of school each year because of their asthma. And nearly 1 in 3 adults miss at least 1 day of work each year because of their asthma. Asthma also interferes with your daily activities:  as I said earlier, nearly 3 in 5 people with asthma limit their usual activities because of their condition.

How Enzymes Help Asthma

However, researchers at Johns Hopkins showed subjects missing a specific enzyme had T cells that were out of control.  These specific T cells are part of your immune system.  When they’re out of control they can cause an asthma attack.  This enzyme, SGK1, keeps those T cells under control.  As a side note, subjects in the study also developed fewer tumors.  This shows that the same enzyme may be helpful in the treatment of certain types of cancer.  Of course what the medical community wants to do is mimic this behavior with a drug, rather than supply the enzyme to a patient who is deficient.  However, it’s nice to see the medical community validating my work.

Our Approach to Respiratory Health

It’s important to remember that I don’t treat any disease.  This, of course, includes asthma.  However, we can support healthy function of your liver, immune system, skin and kidneys.  We can also support healthy digestion.  Now I know what you’re thinking, what do these have to do with asthma?  When your immune system overreacts, it’s because there’s something in your body that shouldn’t be there.

The Body’s Filters

Just what keeps them out?  Your body has three main “filters”, which are your liver, kidneys and skin.  It’s also important to look at digestive health because there are only two ways into the liver.  They are through digestion or from the blood stream.  There are also numerous studies showing chiropractic care helpful in support for healthy breathing.   Once specific testing identifies the source of stress, we use a combination of specific chiropractic care, dietary changes, and the right enzyme supplements to help your body work properly.  Of course a properly working body doesn’t suffer from health problems like asthma (but again, I don’t treat asthma).

Are you concerned about respiratory health or immune health?  Does it affect your work, family life or active lifestyle?  If so, give us a call and set up a consultation.  I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life.  I will even do some preliminary testing as well as Bio Impedance Analysis, which is trusted by both NASA and Cancer Treatment Centers of America.  This will help me determine if you are a good candidate for care.  If you’re not, we’ll make every effort to provide the proper referral.

DAWC039 Arthritis Joint Health

Arthritis Joint Health

Arthritis Joint Health – Don’t miss this amazing episode on arthritis.  Your host, Andy Marrone, D.C. goes over the most common types of arthritis.  Of course, this includes cause, symptoms and common medical treatments.  Did you know there are over 100 types of arthritis?  While simple wear and tear causes some of them, others have far more sinister origins.  These include autoimmune problems as well as an overactive inflammatory response.

Dr. Andy also covers how enzyme nutrition can help support healthy joint function and repair.  Furthermore, he delves into the key to joint health, immune health and swelling control.  He also covers the three filters of the body.  Of course this includes how they play a vital role in immune system health.

He also goes over a case study showing an elderly woman was able to cease her medication thanks to chiropractic care.  The women suffered from Rheumatoid arthritis.  The research also explains why chiropractic care worked for this patient.

Lastly he talks about some controversial news regarding fibromyalgia.  While fibro is an autoimmune disease, and an inflammatory disease, it is not a form of arthritis.  However, some medical web sites are stating that it is, although the Merck manual has not classified it as arthritis.

Lastly he ends the show by answering a listener’s email about PMS and water retention.

Enzymes Arthritis Inflammation

Enzymes Arthritis Inflammation – Enzymes are the unsung heroes of the body.  In fact life would be impossible without them. Did you know that your body contains at least 50,000 different types?  These valuable particles control the chemistry in your body that keeps you healthy.

Enzymes Arthritis Inflammation – What most people don’t realize, however, is that enzymes also play a vital role in controlling swelling.  It’s also important to remember that most forms of arthritis are inflammatory diseases.  There are also many other disease that result from these problems.

Inflammation or swelling is your body’s biggest way of protecting itself.  Have you ever suffered an insect bite, an injury, or a sore throat?  If so, then you know what it is. It’s basically your body’s way of telling you something is wrong. In fact, there are five textbook signs.  They are: redness, heat, swelling, pain, and tight muscles.

So what regulates this response?  The answer lies with specific enzymes.  They break down certain proteins that cause swelling.  This, in turn, controls inflammation levels in your body.  These vital chemicals work by breaking down germs and toxins that tax your immune system and lead to swelling.  Without them, his swelling leads to many serious problems.  These include kidney disease, chronic pain, nerve problems, certain types of arthritis, and many more.  In fact, rheumatoid arthritis is the most common inflammatory joint disease, but there are others as well.

In fact, according to Nutrition Review, Italian researchers performed a study comparing these enzymes to the most popular drugs on the market today.  They found that the enzymes did just as well or better than the four most powerful steroidal and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.  Now it’s important to realize that you can’t just pick an enzyme product off the shelf.  It has to be specific enzymes.

Our Approach

While we don’t treat diseases (including arthritis or inflammation), we do promote healthy inflammation control.   When your body controls inflammation properly, it is less likely to suffer from these problems.

We accomplish this with a comprehensive approach using the right combination of diet and enzyme supplements.   We can also support healthy breakdown of the culprits that cause inflammation.  While we typically we will focus on protein,  each case is different.  For that reason we only make recommendations after scientific testing based on sound medical principles.  Of course chiropractic care can also help lower inflammation levels.  To learn more, see my previous article here.

Do you suffer from joint pain, or chronic inflammation?  Does it affect your work, family life or active lifestyle?  If so, give us a call and set up a consultation.  I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life.  I will even do some preliminary testing as well as Bio Impedance Analysis, which is trusted by both NASA and Cancer Treatment Centers of America.  This will help me determine if you are a good candidate for care.  If you’re not, we’ll make every effort to provide the proper referral.
