… Are you kidding me?  I don’t have time for 7 hours of deep bed rest sleep every night!  At least, that’s what you’re thinking, right?  But let me ask you this.  Please read this article.  Learn about all the health problems that come from lack of this crucial activity.  Then ask yourself: “Can I afford not to get enough sleep each night?”  So what?  I didn’t get enough sleep.  How bad can it be?  Well let me tell you just what’s at stake. Lack of bed-rest can compromise both your emotional and physical health.  Sadly, this also has steep ramifications for your work life, too.

Lack of Sleep & the Workplace

If you’re at work, look around.  Who did you decide to avoid today?  Why?  Are they in a bad mood?  Well, it may be that person didn’t get enough “sack time” last night.  Or worse, maybe the last few nights.  In fact, Research conducted by Laura M. Giurge at Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University in the Netherlands, found that even one night of too little sleep may lead to unwanted behavior at work the next day.  The study concluded that lack of bed rest may weaken a person’s self-control.  This leads to destructive behavior.  In fact it can even lead to thievery at the workplace.  According to the Rotterdam School of Management, employees’ “misbehaving” at work adds up to the about $200 billion a year in the U.S. alone.

Children Suffer Too, Even Years Later

Do you know a child that excessively acts out?  Research shows lack of sleep may be the cause.  However, research also shows sleep deprivation can have serious repercussions later on in life. Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital for Children in Boston used evaluations conducted a study involving over 1,000 children.

While bed rest duration between the ages of 6 months and 2 years was not linked to later behavior, sleep at ages 3 to 4 was. Those who slept less than 10 hours a day at age 3 or 4 had lower scores on executive function and behavior at age 7. Likewise, 5- to 7-year-olds who slept for nine hours a night or less also had lower scores.  “Insufficient sleep in the preschool and early school years is associated with poorer behavior in mid-childhood,” the researchers concluded.

Cutting Rest for work has the opposite effect

In addition to leading to obesity, many diseases, and premature death, sleep also makes you less productive.  In fact, keep that in mind when you’re working on something late at night instead of going to bed.  The next day will more than negate that extra hour or two of work you did last night instead of going to bed. Many research projects show that lack of sleep will adversely affect many aspects of workplace performance.  According to research published in Sleep Medicine Reviews, here are just a few: excess absenteeism, more accidents at work, decreased productivity, lack of career progression, and lower job satisfaction.

Nutrition and Sleep

Of course the problem is that once you get into the habit of sleep deprivation, it’s difficult to change.  However, the proper nutrition can help.

And while I don’t diagnose or treat any disease (including insomnia), I can help support a healthy sleep cycle.  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.

Are you concerned about your sleep cycle?  Does it affect your job, 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.

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.

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?

Wellness versus Disease Treatment

Wellness versus Disease Treatment:  I recently had someone make call into my radio show.  She seemed frustrated for me that I can’t claim to treat disease.  Her exact words were “it must be frustrating that you can say you treat Osteoporosis.”

Wellness versus Disease Treatment: If you listen, or read my blog, you know I am careful about stating I don’t treat disease.  While one reason I’m clear about this is to remain FDA-Compliant, there is another reason.  In fact, what if I told you I’m glad that I don’t make that claim?  Why don’t I give you the same perfect example in just a bit?

So I was broadcasting my show on Bone Health & Osteoporosis.  In the middle of the show, a woman calls in.  She seemed frustrated, stating that she appreciated the information I provided, but was very angry at the FDA.  She was frustrated that natural health care providers like me could not claim to treat diseases like osteoporosis.  I told her I was glad I didn’t treat disease.  In fact, I’ll give you the same explanation I gave her.  Now don’t get me wrong, treating disease DOES HAVE ITS PLACE, and is a NECESSARY SERVICE.

About a year ago a patient came into my office asking me for a natural solution for osteoporosis.  We scheduled a consult.  During the consult I explained that I don’t treat diseases, including osteoporosis, but I could support healthy bone density.  I also explained the problems with calcium supplements, and that problems with bone density are typically a protein problem.  I performed Bio-Impedance analysis, and the patient scheduled testing.  We implemented a plan including a diet high in protein in calcium, along with specific enzymes that promote protein and calcium absorption, digestion, and use in the body.

The Results

A few months later, the patient reported that her latest bone density test was normal.  They also reported that their premenstrual cramps were almost nonexistent.  Additionally, they had more muscle mass and less body fat.  To confirm this, we did another Bio Impedance analysis.  We were both quite happy with the results.  So let’s compare this to treating Osteoporosis.  Treating Osteoporosis would have merely improved the patient’s bone density.  However, finding the source of stress in the body, and addressing that source of stress had a much broader and profound effect.  Which would you prefer?

Are you concerned about your 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.

Benefits of Horseradish.  Horseradish has an unmistakable smell and flavor that really hits your nose.  While no one really knows its origin, you can trace horseradish back to the Mediterranean, Europe and Asian regions. In fact according to Greek mythology, horseradish is actually worth its weight in gold.  Additionally, the Baseline of Health Foundation reported that horseradish can relieve symptoms of several serious diseases.  These issues include:  respiratory health, gout, sciatic nerve pain, and cancer.  Did you also know it can help with edema (water retention), colds, asthma, skin blemishes, and dandruff?  In fact it is also useful for gallbladder disorders, intestinal parasites, colic, and even headaches.

A study conducted at the University of Illinois found that horseradish delivered 10 times more glucosinolate enzymes than broccoli.  Meanwhile, the Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences state that these enzymes have many health benefits.  First of all, they decrease inflammation from many chronic illnesses, including cancer and cardiovascular disease.  Secondly, they suppress certain enzymes known to cause cancer.  Third, they activate enzymes that shut down carcinogens.  And lastly, they help reduce the spread of cancer cells.  In fact, the American Institute for Cancer Research was responsible for these studies.

Obesity is a Disease – it’s BAD NEWS

Obesity is a Disease

it’s BAD NEWS

Yes Obesity is a Disease.  Or at least it will be soon.  I know this sounds like good news, right?  I mean after all, now that it’s a disease people will take it more seriously, right?  Unfortunately not.  Calling obesity a disease comes with some serious but subtle political undertones that help big pharma and hurt you.

The Hidden Agenda

Once you call something a “disease”, no diet, supplement, exercise can claim to help it.  Once that label (“disease”) is there, the only thing that can legally claim to cure it is a prescription medication.  So now do you see the political maneuvering?  The prescription drug companies don’t want you to believe that the right diet and exercise program can help.  They’d rather sell you a pill that has potentially harmful side effects.  This gives them even more control over your rights, freedom and health.  Now other health care providers, even natural ones can’t advertise weight loss.

The Good News

There is a bright side, however.  Big Drug Companies can legislate diseases all they want.  Fortunately, that’s not what I do.  I don’t treat disease and never treated disease.  The key to supporting healthy body weight is the right combination of activity, and diet.  It is also vitally important to make sure your body can properly digest, absorb and use those nutrients properly.  The purpose of enzyme nutrition is to do just that.  We accomplish this safely, naturally and effectively without harmful drugs or surgery.

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. If you’re not, we’ll make every effort to provide the proper referral.
