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.

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.

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.

Arthritis Joint Health
Arthritis Joint Health – There are many types

Chiropractic helps with rheumatoid arthritis

 Rheumatoid arthritis is a disease where the body’s immune system attacks your joints.  The hallmark of disease is chronic inflammation.  Over time, it actually destroys joints, tissues and organs. A recent study published in the Annals of Vertebral Subluxation Research shows how chiropractic care showed outstanding results in a woman with long-term rheumatoid arthritis.

An elderly old woman went to see a chiropractor after suffering from rheumatoid arthritis for over seven years. She complained of severe joint pain, especially in the hands and fingers. She also complained of swelling in her hands, fingers, knees, toes and feet. Her pain and swelling were so bad that she had difficulties with just getting around.  Every morning she woke up incredibly stiff every morning. In fact, she was taking several strong drugs just to manage her symptoms. She described her pain severe all the time.

The doctor performed an extensive evaluation including posture evaluation, physical exam and x-ray imaging. The treating doctor found subluxations throughout the spine, especially in the upper neck area. X-rays also showed a loss in the curve of the neck.  As a result of this decreased curve,  a forward head shift was another clinical feature.

Research shows that forward head posture can add a significant amount of abnormal stress pulling the entire spine out of alignment.  This can also restrict normal breathing. In fact, this sort of posture problem can cause a loss of 30 percent of vital lung capacity. When this occurs, your body gets less oxygen which can affect your immune system.

Subluxation is the term for problems in the spine that interrupt nerve pathways.  This, in turn affects the organs and systems of the body impacting your overall health. Causes include any type of physical, emotional, or nutritional stress.  This stress affects nerve function, which leads poor immune function, and increased inflammation.

Subluxation causes Swelling

Chronic inflammatory based disease processes are influenced by several systems.  These include the nervous, endocrine and immune systems. In fact, nerve stimulation is essential for the growth, function and control of inflammatory cells. Researchers have noted that abnormal neurological control results in the development of various auto-immune based inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis.

Are you concerned about your joint health?  Does your ailment affect your work, family life or active lifestyle?  Would you like to support a healthy body safely, naturally and effectively?  Would you like to avoid drugs or surgery?  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.
