Diabetic Kidney Disease and Enzymes

Diabetic Kidney Disease and Enzymes – Did you know that people with diabetes are more likely to suffer kidney disease?  When there is too much sugar in the blood stream, your kidneys work too hard trying to filter it out.  Over time, this takes its toll on your kidneys leading to disease and eventually failure.  However research shows that certain enzymes may help restore kidney health in these cases.

In fact, this research comes from the October 25 issue of Journal of Clinical Investigation.  In the study, researchers stimulated the mitochondria.  The mitochondria is essentially the “power house of the cell”.  They did this  by activating a key energy sensing enzyme called AMPK, superoxide.  When they did this, diabetic kidney disease markedly declined.  So how do you increase your AMPK levels?  You can boost beneficial AMPK activity through simple lifestyle changes.  These include weight loss and exercise.

We can Help

In fact, while I don’t treat diseases, I can support a body the works properly.  This includes support for health kidney function, sugar metabolism, and body composition.  I provide this support with a specific plan. And this plan usually includes custom dietary changes and the correct enzyme supplements. Of course I only make recommendations after scientific testing based on sound medical principles.  With over 30 years of experience, we can even help you develop an exercise program.  Of course we can also provide specific enzyme supplements to support healthy kidney function.

Are you concerned about kidney health? Do you spend hours or days at home waiting for your problems to subside? 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. I will even do some preliminary testing as well as Bio Impedance Analysis (BIA). In fact did you know that both NASA and Cancer Treatment Centers of America rely on BIA? These tests 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.

Weight Loss Takes Effort…

Weight Loss takes effort, there are no magic pills.  Obesity is on the rise in America.  Sadly, according to the CDC, it is the number one cause of most chronic diseases today.  These ailments include diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and many more.

There’s no two ways about it.  Weight loss takes effort.  And while big pharma is scrambling for drugs to “treat it”, and the supplement industry makes a fortune on it, there’s no magic pill.  Just so you’re aware, the drug tycoons are going to classify obesity as a disease.  And while this sounds like a good thing, there are sinister plans behind it.  You see, once something is classified as a disease, only big phrama can claim to treat it.  So they are trying to create an unethical monopoly on weight loss.

Practical Advice

However, here are some key things for you and your family to support healthy body mass (just in case).  For those of you who already read my articles, this first one will come as no surprise.  It’s your mind set.  Instead of thinking “I really should lose weight,” start thinking “I am working towards healthy body mass.”   That by itself changes your mind set from “want” to “do”.  By the same token instead of thinking “I don’t have the time,” change it to “I am making the time to get healthy.”

After that, get out your planner.  Make time for health.  Build exercise time and diet review into your schedule.  If something’s important, you put it on your calendar.  If it’s not, you don’t.  Sadly, you and I both know that if it’s not on your calendar chances are you won’t do it.

Use Technology and your Team

Next, get a phone app to track you’re eating.  Some phones even have built in apps already.  This makes changing what you eat and how much much easier.  But I do have to caution you.  Slow gradual changes will last longer than sudden drastic changes.  Your body will also adapt to them much easier.

Learn to delegate.  There are lots of experts out there.  Hire a team of people to help you stay on course with diet, exercises and elimination of unhealthy habits.  If you like to watch TV, why not do it on a treadmill, bike or elliptical trainer?  Or cut your TV time 30 minutes and exercise 30 minutes.  That time away from the “tube” will reduce your stress which by itself can lead to weight loss.  By the way, can we still call them “tubes”?

Understand there is no magic pill.  Even I use enzyme nutrition to support healthy body mass, but only with the right lifestyle changes.  In fact, when I do a consultation, I will not take someone on as a patient if they’re not willing to make lifestyle changes.  Why?  Because I don’t want you to spend your hard earned money on something I know won’t work.

If you need Help

While I don’t treat diseases (including obesity – assuming it gets classified as such), I can help support healthy body mass and composition.  I accomplish this through a customized exercise program, dietary coaching, and the right enzyme supplements. Remember that healthy body mass is not just something you attain to look better, it helps you live a longer higher quality life.  It also drastically lowers the risk of many deadly diseases.

Are you concerned about your body mass?  Does it affect your job, family or fun? Are you worried about the long term affects?  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 (BIA). In fact did you know that both NASA and Cancer Treatment Centers of America rely on BIA? These tests 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.

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.

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.

Prescription Drug Scams

Prescription Drug Scams

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?

The Drug Free Approach To Supporting a Health Body

At Redmond Ridge Nutrition and Chiropractic, we don’t use drugs to treat diseases.  Instead we use specific scientific testing to find the source of stress.  Then we use custom dietary changes along with specific enzyme supplements to support healthy function of stressed organs and systems.  We accomplish this safely, naturally and effectively without drugs or surgery.  And of course, no one bribes us with unethical kickbacks.  So you can rest assured we do not have any ulterior motives interfering with our clinical decisions.  So we aren’t affected by prescription drug scams.

Call Us

Would you like to reclaim your health naturally?  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. I will even do some preliminary testing as well as Bio Impedance Analysis (BIA). In fact did you know that both NASA and Cancer Treatment Centers of America rely on BIA? These tests help me determine if you are a good candidate for care.
