Probiotics
Probiotics may not be the answer.

Probiotics – more isn’t better.  By now I’m sure pretty much everyone out there has seen a commercial for probiotics.  Some even tout they contain more strains than others.  While modern medicine’s official stance is that probiotics don’t help with anything, many drug companies are selling them as supplements.  Additionally, many M.D.’s are also recommending them.  Those are pretty strong actions for a product they state doesn’t work.  However, in this article I’ll teach you when probiotics are and aren’t appropriate and how to select the right ones.

In fact, when dealing with this supplement more really isn’t better.  Each bacteria in your small intestine has a specific job.  So it’s important to make sure you buy a supplement it has bacteria to do each job.  If the product can’t cover each role, then yes, you’re missing out.  However, many products contain too many varieties.  This can be problematic because they can compete to do the same job, causing more harm than good.

Our Approach

As a matter of fact I try not to use probiotics in my office unless absolutely necessary.  And when they are necessary I use a high quality probiotic/enzyme combination.  This supplement only contains six strains of bacteria.  And each one has it’s own unique job.

So I know what you’re thinking, if they’re so popular why do I try to avoid using them?  These bacteria live in the lining in your small intestine.  In fact they’re supposed to be there already.  So if they’re not, it means that the environment in your gut isn’t healthy.  And if it’s not healthy, it can’t support a healthy population of bacteria.  So my goal is to support a healthy environment in the small intestine.  Then, if I have to “kick start” the population with probiotics I will.  But if I got your gut’s environment right you won’t have to keep taking them.

A Case Study

Digestion affects health.  I recently had a patient come to my office for enzyme nutrition testing.  Now it’s important to point out that due to patient privacy guidelines I have changed some of the minor details of the case.  In fact, we’ll also use a made up name.  How about Stu?  Stu came in to my office after going from doctor to doctor in the medical system.  In fact he brought in about 30 pages of exams, image and lab tests.  And of course, all of them reported normal.  Surprisingly, on his way to the office he had to call and ask directions several times.

Background

When he showed up in my office, the first thing I did was take the time to sit down with him and listen to his problems.  After speaking with Stu, I discovered he suffered from a host of serious concerns.  Most noteworthy, Stu’s problems included severe brain fog, weakness, rapid unhealthy weight loss, and chronic pain.  In fact Stu was currently on disability.  He used to work as a highly skilled fabricator, and really wanted to go back to work.  He spent his day his days in absolute agony.    Consequently he felt he had nowhere else to turn.  Unfortunately, the medical field had no answers for him.  Then, after some discussion and questions, Stu decided to do a consult.

The Testing

After I performed a thorough consultation which included some careful preliminary testing and interview I determined he was a good candidate for care.  As a result, his test results indicated his stomach wasn’t processing food properly, and the digestive lining in his small intestine was very unhealthy.  After a customized diet and the correct combination of specific enzymes Stu started to feel better in about 3 days.  He was able to concentrate better, he had more energy, and he was actually starting to gain weight.  Additionally, he said he could feel the chronic pains and aches “slowly melting away”.  After about 4 weeks, Stu said he started to feel like his “old self again”. In fact a couple of weeks later he was able to go back to work, exercise and concentrate more fully.

Sound Familiar?

In fact, are you missing out on work family or fun? 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.

Plant Proteins for a leaner you
Plant Proteins or animal proteins?

Plant Proteins are the Latest Trend.  Well, I was perusing some natural research web sites looking for my next topic.  And it seemed that no matter where I went, the latest trend for 2017 seems to be plant protein.  In this article I’ll discuss the pros and cons to this new fad, and how to get the most out of your plant based food.

There are several interesting reasons why plant protein is very popular right now.  I would also like to point out that I’ve touted plant protein since 2008.  In fact the protein I sell in my office is plant based.  However, one reason is that many plants actually have a higher protein concentration than many meats.  Another reason is that you can eat them raw and not have to worry about cooking them in unhealthy oils.

However there are several concerns with regarding plant proteins.  The first one is that meat contains proteins that have a wider variety of amino acids.  Your body requires these acids for many vital functions.  Secondly, your body can use animal proteins faster than plant proteins.  And lastly, your body cannot digest plant material without special enzymes.  And unfortunately, your body can’t make these enzymes.

The Solution

It’s important to get your protein from a VARIETY OF SOURCES.  This ensures your body receives all of the necessary amino acids.   It is also important to make sure you use the right enzymes help your body break down, digest, absorb and use those proteins.   This includes enzymes to help your body digest plant material.  This is especially vital since your body cannot make those enzymes and not all supplements contain them.

Are you concerned about healthy digestion?  Do you want to get the most out of your protein and diet?  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.  Both NASA and Cancer Treatment Centers of America trust this cutting edge technology in for their subjects.  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.
