Prescription Drug Scams.  In case you haven’t read my bio, you may not know that my Dad is a practicing medical doctor.  One day, when I was a young boy, I was working in his office filing charts.  All of a sudden, I heard my dad yelling at someone in his office.  A few seconds later, a man in a suit rushed out of my dad’s office.  As a matter of fact, he was still putting on his coat and organizing his things.  He also had frightened look on his face.  Now I’ve never seen my dad behave that way so I was absolutely shocked.  I looked at the office manager with concern.  And she said he was probably a prescription drug rep.

Background

Later that night, I asked my dad what happened.  He said that the man was a prescription drug rep.  He also said the man wanted to sign my dad up for an incentive program.  In fact, every time my dad prescribed a certain drug, he earned “points”.  At the end of the campaign, the doctors with the most points won an all expenses paid trip for four to the Superbowl that year.  My dad explained that he felt that was unethical, and kicked the guy out of his office, refusing to sign up.

My dad graduated from Hershey Medical School.  At that time, it was a very conservative school.  In fact they taught that doctors should only use medical intervention when absolutely necessary.  Unfortunately, times have changed.

The Dangers

While my dad was upstanding and ethical, how many doctors sign up for promotions like these?  When you’re receiving a scrip, how can you be sure that at some subconscious level, your doctor isn’t thinking about that promotion?  Even if he or she doesn’t mean to, that thought is still there.  If I owned a gym, and told my patients that in order to get better they needed to join my gym, I would lose my license.  The only way I wouldn’t is if I disclosed that I owned the gym, and provided other gyms as an option too.  In fact it’s called a conflict of interest.  So why does the government hold medical doctors and the prescription drug companies to a different standard?  Isn’t that a bigger conflict of interest?

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.

DAWC 035 High Blood Pressure

High Blood Pressure

Hypertension and Vascular Health

High Blood Pressure
High Blood Pressure can be deadly

This episode of Dr. Andy’s Wellness Corner is about high blood pressure.  Additionally, Dr. Andy will go into the importance of vascular health and other risks from this common disease.  Of course, Dr. Andy starts by defining the disease.  And then your host covers its prevalence not only in the U.S. but in Washington state as well.  He also gets into what this common disease costs Americans annually as well its serious complications.  He also goes into risk groups, how it’s measured and common treatments.  Lastly he covers both the popular natural approaches to healthy vascular function and, of course, the enzyme nutrition approach.

High blood pressure is known as hypertension.  The most common way to measure it is using a cuff.  There are, however, several other ways to measure it.  Additionally, one high reading is not enough to diagnose a patient with hypertension or high blood pressure.  In this program, Dr. Andy will also reveal some startling new research showing how high blood pressure can lead to some pretty surprising complications.  There are of course some predictable complications as well.  Your host goes into both of them siting appropriate research along the way.

Then Dr. Andy goes into  common medications as well as their side effects.  He also goes common natural ways of supporting healthy vascular functions.  Lastly, of course he delves into the enzyme nutrition approach to support  properly working heart and vascular systems.

Enzymes Boost Heart Health
Learn How Enzymes Boost Heart Health

Enzymes Boost Heart Health.  According to Nutrition Research, January 2009, specific enzymes supports healthy heart and cardiovascular  function.  In fact the study even showed that this enzyme even helps people who are at higher risk of cardio vascular disease (CVD).  In fact according to the research, this enzyme helps heart health by reducing several key clotting factors in the blood.   These factors are fibrinogen, factor VII and factor VIII.

Factor VII, formerly known as proconvertin, is one of the proteins that causes blood to clot in the coagulation cascade.  Meanwhile, factor VIII is an essential blood clotting protein.  Lastly, fibrinogen (formerly known as factor I) is a glycoprotein in vertebrates that helps in the formation of blood clots.  And while all of these chemicals are necessary; in fact we would bleed to death without them, they are problematic in abundance.

The Research and Our Approach

However, the exciting news is that the enzyme known as nattokinase shows much promise in reducing fibrinogen, Factor VII and Factor VIII.  Of course you would want to be careful not to take too much.  In fact, this why we use a scientific approach to supporting a healthy working body with enzyme nutrition.  Through scientific testing based on sound medical principals, Dr. Andy can identify the actual source(s) of stress in the body and help those organs work properly.  Therefore, this even includes both heart and cardiovascular function.

Are you concerned about your heart health?  Does your condition affect your work, play or family?  Would you like a more active lifestyle?  Or perhaps you’re worried about a loved one.  Give us a call and set up a consultation.  Let us help your body work properly by finding and addressing the source of stress.  In fact, we will take the time to sit down and talk with you about your suffering.  We will even do some preliminary testing to determine if you are a good candidate for care.
