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.

A Complete Approach

At Redmond Ridge Nutrition & Chiropractic we use a unique combination of specific corrective adjustments.   We skillfully perform traditional or low force care, gentle traction, home exercises and enzyme nutrition.  The purpose is to improve all of the tissues causing your problem for a more complete solution.  Of course it’s also vital to support healthy tissue repair, which is where enzyme nutrition comes in.  In fact we will never perform a chiropractic adjustment on you that is either unsafe, or makes you feel uncomfortable.

Enzymes help Asthma, Research Shows

Enzymes help Asthma, Research Shows – Do you suffer from asthma?  Does it stifle your active lifestyle?  Sadly, up until now you could only manage the symptoms.  And while that’s super important, new research supports the use of enzymes to help with asthma.

Enzymes help Asthma.  According to the CDC, asthma affected over 26 and a half million Americans in 2010.  According to the Asthma foundation it has been on the rise since the 1970’s.    That’s about 17% of Americans, or one in 5 or 6.  That’s also about a 25% increase since 2001.  It is projected to increase by over 30% by 2030.

Sadly, modern medicine can only manage the symptoms, or respond to an attack.  Now I’m not understating the importance of that.  An asthma attack can be lethal, so when it flares up, intervention can save your life.  As always, I am very grateful for modern medicine’s ability to handle crisis care.  However, that seems to be all they can do.

Asthma is An Allergic Attack

Asthma is basically your body’s immune system overreacting to an allergen.  When this happens, certain immune cells go into overdrive.  This leads to inflammation, and constriction of the airways in the lungs making breathing very difficult.  It can also worsen with exertion.  In fact 3 out of 5 asthma sufferers are forced to limit their physical activity because it could risk a serious flare up.  Additionally, nearly 1 in 2 children miss at least a day of school each year because of their asthma. And nearly 1 in 3 adults miss at least 1 day of work each year because of their asthma. Asthma also interferes with your daily activities:  as I said earlier, nearly 3 in 5 people with asthma limit their usual activities because of their condition.

How Enzymes Help Asthma

However, researchers at Johns Hopkins showed subjects missing a specific enzyme had T cells that were out of control.  These specific T cells are part of your immune system.  When they’re out of control they can cause an asthma attack.  This enzyme, SGK1, keeps those T cells under control.  As a side note, subjects in the study also developed fewer tumors.  This shows that the same enzyme may be helpful in the treatment of certain types of cancer.  Of course what the medical community wants to do is mimic this behavior with a drug, rather than supply the enzyme to a patient who is deficient.  However, it’s nice to see the medical community validating my work.

Our Approach to Respiratory Health

It’s important to remember that I don’t treat any disease.  This, of course, includes asthma.  However, we can support healthy function of your liver, immune system, skin and kidneys.  We can also support healthy digestion.  Now I know what you’re thinking, what do these have to do with asthma?  When your immune system overreacts, it’s because there’s something in your body that shouldn’t be there.

The Body’s Filters

Just what keeps them out?  Your body has three main “filters”, which are your liver, kidneys and skin.  It’s also important to look at digestive health because there are only two ways into the liver.  They are through digestion or from the blood stream.  There are also numerous studies showing chiropractic care helpful in support for healthy breathing.   Once specific testing identifies the source of stress, we use a combination of specific chiropractic care, dietary changes, and the right enzyme supplements to help your body work properly.  Of course a properly working body doesn’t suffer from health problems like asthma (but again, I don’t treat asthma).

Are you concerned about respiratory health or immune health?  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.

DAWC039 Arthritis Joint Health

Arthritis Joint Health

Arthritis Joint Health – Don’t miss this amazing episode on arthritis.  Your host, Andy Marrone, D.C. goes over the most common types of arthritis.  Of course, this includes cause, symptoms and common medical treatments.  Did you know there are over 100 types of arthritis?  While simple wear and tear causes some of them, others have far more sinister origins.  These include autoimmune problems as well as an overactive inflammatory response.

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.

He also goes over a case study showing an elderly woman was able to cease her medication thanks to chiropractic care.  The women suffered from Rheumatoid arthritis.  The research also explains why chiropractic care worked for this patient.

Lastly he talks about some controversial news regarding fibromyalgia.  While fibro is an autoimmune disease, and an inflammatory disease, it is not a form of arthritis.  However, some medical web sites are stating that it is, although the Merck manual has not classified it as arthritis.

Lastly he ends the show by answering a listener’s email about PMS and water retention.

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.

PMS and Water Retention

PMS and Water Retention – I had a question from a listener of my radio show.  Her question was “I thought PMS was a water retention problem, not a protein problem.”   Water retention is a symptom of PMS, but not the actual problem.

PMS and Water Retention – Yes water retention can be a common symptom of PMS and there are two reasons for it.  I’ll give you those reasons in a second, but to be clear water retention doesn’t cause PMS, it is a symptom of PMS.  The cause of PMS is a protein deficiency which essentially robs the cycle of the calcium it needs to carry out in a healthy manner.  Here are the reasons for water retention:

The most common cause of PMs and water retention is hormonal changes and imbalance due to the increase of estrogen that starts slowly in the premenstrual stage and is excessive in the follicular stage.  The luteal stage sees the estrogen diminish and progesterone increase which maintains an imbalance. This causes fluid to be retained in the feet, hand, legs and abdomen.  Another cause of water retention is the dehydration that can occur before and during the period but mostly before.  Women often do not drink enough water in these stages of the cycle. Dehydration always leads to water retention as the body tries to keep what it has. Finally if a woman has high sodium this will increase the fluid retention.

Diet is Key

Diet is a big factor in water retention during menstruation because of the many properties in food to retain or expel fluid and how you eat is as important as what you eat. Things to avoid include refined sugar. Avoid simple carbohydrates in favor of complex carbohydrates.  There should be plenty of fiber and lean protein as well. It is recommended that smaller meals be eaten 4-5 times a day instead of three large meals. Additionally, eat foods that have a lot of iron. It is also important to eat foods that have high amounts of water so that this fluid can help the kidneys to flush out all the fluid in the body. These foods include berries, watermelon, cucumbers and lettuce.  And where should your fiber come from – you’ve heard me say it a million times – FRESH FRUITS AND VEGETABLES.

Our Approach

While we don’t treat diseases (including PMS and water retention), we do support healthy menstrual function.  This of course includes supporting a healthy cycle.  If the cycle is healthy, and has all of the vital nutrients it needs, it is much less likely to cause problems.  We accomplish this with a comprehensive approach.  First, chiropractic care can help maintain healthy nerve flow to the organs.  This helps those organs work properly.  Next, with the right combination of diet and enzyme supplements we can support healthy protein and calcium digestion, absorption and use.  Typically we will focus on protein, however each case is different.  For that reason we only make recommendations after scientific testing based on sound medical principles.

Do you suffer from severe symptoms from your cycle?  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.

PMS – Are you like millions of other women who suffer from ailments related to your monthly cycle?  Do these problems become so severe they interfere with your work, play and family life?  It’s important to remember that you’re not alone.  In fact premenstrual syndrome affects millions of women worldwide.  In fact imbalances in women’s health can cause a wide range of symptoms including PMS.  These include crying spells, headaches, bloating, bowel problems, back pain, mood swings, irritability, depression or feeling down, and even severe cramping.  And that’s just naming a few.

Unfortunately, modern medicine really doesn’t have an answer to PMS.  Well, actually they do, it’s to cover up the symptoms with medication.  Beyond that they have no answers.  But what if I told you the key to supporting a healthy cycle?

The Key to a Healthy Cycle

So here it is, I’m going to tell you the key to a healthy cycle.  Of course when your cycle is healthy, you will not suffer the common symptoms of PreMenstrual Syndrome, or PMS.   Well, the key is calcium.  A healthy cycle actually requires calcium.  But wait, I know what you’re thinking.  I’m headed right over to the supplement store to pick up some calcium.  It’s good for bone health too.  Before you head out, understand that women who supplement with calcium are five times more likely to suffer from dementia or stroke.  You also increase your risk of cancer.  In fact the best way to get calcium is from your diet.

But you want to be more proactive about supporting a healthy cycle, to reduce the odds of PMS.  What do you implement?  Well, the answer is actually protein.  Why?  Because calcium is carried by protein.  So another important way to support a healthy cycle is to increase your protein intake.  However, be careful with soy.  Soy has chemicals in it that bind with estrogen receptors.  This can worsen your symptoms.  But what if your body has trouble digesting, absorbing or using protein?

Our Approach

While we don’t treat diseases (including PMS), we do support healthy menstrual function.  This of course includes supporting a healthy cycle.  If the cycle is healthy, and has all of the vital nutrients it needs, it is much less likely to cause problems.  We accomplish this with a comprehensive approach.  First, chiropractic care can help maintain healthy nerve flow to the organs.  This helps those organs work properly.  Next, with the right combination of diet and enzyme supplements we can support healthy protein and calcium digestion, absorption and use.  Typically we will focus on protein, however each case is different.  For that reason we only make recommendations after scientific testing based on sound medical principles.

Do you suffer from severe symptoms from your cycle?  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.
