Chiropractic improves mood by helping your posture.  Research published in 2015 outlined how chiropractic helps fix your posture.  As a result, it can improve your mood.  In fact, the same research along with research from Harvard University both support this idea.  How is this possible?  According to the Amy Cuddy, from Harvard University, an upright posture actually makes you feel more powerful, confident and happy.

OK, I think I know what you’re thinking.  How in the world can your posture affect your mood?  According to the Harvard research, changing your posture actually changes your body chemistry.  In fact, it affects the very brain chemicals responsible for your mood.  However, I must also mention that the opposite is also true.  That is, your mood chemicals also affect your posture.

Green Tea, A Healthy Alternative to Coffee

Green Tea, A Healthy Alternative to Coffee.  Let’s face it, America is addicted to coffee.  However, did you know that the national drink of the U.S. was once tea?  Unfortunately, coffee can have a negative impact on your health…

Green Tea, A Healthy Alternative to Coffee.  However, did you know that according to multiple studies that span decades, experts have linked coffee to many serious illnesses?  Sadly, these problems include type 2 diabetes, cancer, high blood pressure, stroke, and chronic inflammation.  Additionally, chronic inflammation can lead to vascular problems, asthma, osteoporosis, arthritis, auto immune diseases, chronic pain, chronic fatigue, depression, & anxiety.  However, it also causes infertility, insomnia, digestive problems, Alzheimer’s, dementia, and many more!

Before I continue, let me tell you a little secret about coffee.  Did you know that our national drink wasn’t coffee?  In fact, do you know what it was?  Well, our national drink was actually tea.  Coffee didn’t take over until the early 1900’s.  At that time, companies hired social psychologists to create tricky marketing campaigns.  Fortunately, the law currently prohibits this practice.  However, at that time, a small coffee company came up with a very effective ad slogan.  In fact, a group of social psychologists came up with the slogan.  Can you guess the slogan?  It was “good to the last drop.”

Switch to Tea

Now, back to tea.  While green tea does contain caffeine, it also has many benefits.  These benefits include antioxidants which help your body keep cancer at bay.  Other key ingredients include quercetin, which helps your body avoid allergies.  Conversely, green tea helps alkalize your body.  This helps your body support healthy bone density.  Additionally, an alkaline body ph also helps you keep cancer at bay.  On top of that, green tea also helps your body reduce inflammation, not increase it.  So, do you remember all of those problems I mentioned above?  Green tea can help your body prevent these issues.  Conversely, coffee adds fuel to the fire.  That is, coffee contributes to the problem.

How we Help

In fact, when I work with my nutrition patients, one of my biggest tasks involves coffee elimination.  The good news is that many coffee shops also sell high quality tea.  In fact, one popular national chain based in Seattle uses a very high quality matcha.  So, if you’re going out to the coffee shop with your friends, you have healthy alternatives available.

At Redmond Ridge Nutrition & Chiropractic, we help your body work properly to reduce the likelihood of chronic inflammation, which leads to chronic disease.  We accomplish this using the right enzyme supplements, and dietary changes designed to teach you how to eat to your personal genetic strengths.  Of course, we only make recommendations after thorough scientific testing based on sound medical principals.

When You’re Ready…

Do you suffer from chronic health problems?  Have you tried everything?  Are you concerned about the long-term health consequences?  If so, you can contact us one of several ways to set up a consultation.

Chiropractic Helps Weight Loss

Chiropractic helps weight loss.  In a world of gimmick diets, and supplements that come with false hopes and promises, Americans are desperate to lose weight.  While many seek weight loss to improve appearance and self-esteem, many of our nation’s top killers start with obesity.  In fact, these chronic diseases include diabetes, heart disease, heart failure, high blood pressure, and many more.

Chiropractic Helps Weight Loss.  In fact, new studies show that chiropractic helps weight loss.  Surprised?  In order to explain why, I’ll need to take you on a little journey.  Do you know what part of your brain is responsible for weight loss?  Remember that your brain has to parts.  First is the conscious part, where you think about things, and act based on those thoughts.  Second, however, is the autonomic nervous system.  This is the part of your brain that runs your body in the background.  In fact, it constantly makes adjustments in reaction to changes both in our bodies and in the outside world.  In fact, it’s called the Autonomic Nervous System, or ANS.

Your “Automatic” Brain

However, the ANS has two parts.  Furthermore, these parts work opposite each other.  The first is our fight or flight system.  In fact, it’s called the Sympathetic Nervous System or SNS.  Your brain turns this system up when you are more active.  In fact, it increases blood flow to the limbs & muscles, and releases chemicals into our blood that give us more energy.  While it was designed for emergencies, we also use it to burn calories when we exercise.  Additionally, the SNS also improves our metabolism.

Conversely, the other part is the calming part.  Actually, it’s called the Parasympathetic Nervous System, or PNS.  The PNS works opposite the fight or flight system.  This system “mellows” us out and relaxes us.  How does it work?  Well, it diverts energy away from our limbs and muscles and into things like digestion and elimination.  When the SNS is revved up, the PNS is automatically turned down and vis. versa.

As a result, to lose weight, our fight or flight system needs to work properly.  According to Chiropractic Journal, chiropractic care helps your fight or flight system work properly.  Additionally, research from Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism shows that improved  SNS function helps you lose weight.

A Unique Combination of Nutrition, Chiropractic, & Exercise

In fact, this is precisely our focus at Redmond Ridge Nutrition.  We use the right dietary changes in combination with enzyme supplements designed to support health fat breakdown and body metabolism.   Of course, we also help your ANS work properly through specific spinal corrections.  These adjustments are both safe and precise.  However, we also can use either traditional or low-force techniques depending on the patient.  Since every case is unique, we only make recommendations after a thorough examination and nutritional testing.  Furthermore, our testing is based on sound medical principles.  Once we make those dietary changes, we stand behind you as your coach teaching you how to eat to your own genetic strengths.  If you like, we can use our 30 years of fitness instruction to help you develop a safe and effective exercise program.

Starvation Diets Cause Weight Gain

Starvation Diets Cause Weight Gain.  Because obesity is already a nation-wide epidemic, many turn to diet programs that involve starvation diets.  Sadly, in the long term, these programs cause weight gain over the long haul.  In this article, I’ll explain why.

Check out our radio show – Mondays 9-10 AM

AM 1150 KKNW, 1150kknw.com, or FM 98.9 HD band 3,

or on a radio app from your smart device

Starvation diets don’t work.  According to the CDC, over 1/3 of all Americans are obese.  Sadly, obesity is the number one cause of diabetes, heart disease, heart failure, high blood pressure, and many of our nation’s top killers.  To make matters worse, if current trends continue, over 1/2 of all Americans will suffer from obesity by 2030.  As a result, many American turn to supplements and extreme diet programs in hopes of looking better and feeling younger.  Sadly, many of these diets actually make the situation worse over the long haul.

To make matters worse, many of these starvation diets are multi-level networking products.  Their aim is to get you under their “tier” so they hopefully make a percentage of everything you buy.  Furthermore, many will eventually try to get you to promote these products to others.  Hence, if you sign people up under your “tier” they also profit.  Even more worrisome, is that many of these people are selling you diets and supplements have not training in nutrition or any type of health care.

How These Diets Work

So how do these programs work anyway?  Most of these programs put you on a 500 to 1500 calorie diet.  Then, to keep your energy up, they use shakes and supplements loaded with unhealthy energy boosters.  In fact, these boosters include guarna, caffeine and even ma huang.  Unfortunately, all of these can cause serious health problems if used improperly.  In fact, all of them cause energy crashes once they wear off. Even others claim to give you supplements or shakes that “curb your hunger”.  Yet others claim to include supplements that “reset your metabolism.”  Sadly, there is no research to back any of this up.

Furthermore, if you read the fine print of most of these diets, they read that 75-95% of the population gains the weight back.  Actually, the percentage varies based on the product.  Now let’s delve into why.  When you starve yourself, you force your body to slow down it’s metabolism.  While we’re on the subject, what exactly is this buzz-word everyone throws around?  Think of metabolism like the speedometer in your car.  However, your metabolism is the speed at which your body burns calories.  Of course, the more calories you burn, the more fat you break down.  So, if these diets slow your metabolism, you will gain weight once you’re off them.

Short-Term Results

In fact, that’s why starvation diets work in the short-term.  While your metabolism is slowing down, you’re still not getting enough energy from your food.  As a result, your body breaks down fat.  However, in many of these diets, burning fat isn’t enough.  So, what does your body do?  Well, it does the same thing it would do if you were stranded in the jungle for months without food.  Your body breaks down muscle for energy.  That’s right.  When you go on a starvation diet ask the person who sold it to you how much muscle mass you’ll lose.

Weight loss is about much more than calorie intake.  While you do need to count calories, you shouldn’t starve yourself.  However, you also need to pay attention to where those calories come from.  The right balance of proteins, fats and complex carbs in combination with the right exercise program can increase your metabolism causing your body to burn fat even at rest.

An Effective, Lasting Solution

In fact, this is precisely our focus at Redmond Ridge Nutrition.  We use the right dietary changes in combination with enzyme supplements designed to support health fat breakdown and body metabolism.   Since every case is unique, we only make recommendations after testing.  Furthermore, our testing is based on sound medical principles.  Once we make those dietary changes, we stand behind you as your coach teaching you how to eat to your own genetic strengths.  If you like, we can use our 30 years of fitness instruction to help you develop a safe and effective exercise program.

Flu Vaccine Success is Dismal

Flu vaccine success is dismal, even with inflated numbers.  Did you know the flu vaccine was only 36 percent effective?  However, there’s more to the story.  Sadly, these numbers are actually inflated.  Despite this dismally low success rate, the CDC still brags that the vaccine was a “grand success.”

Flu Vaccine Success is Dismal

Flu vaccine success is dismal.  First of all, let me explain how the CDC inflated the already low number of 36%.  That’s right, the CDC is proud of the 36% success rate of last year’s flu vaccine.  However, even that number is inflated.  Here’s why.  You see, this number is NOT based on absolute risk reduction (ARR). Instead, the CDC bases its vaccine effectiveness numbers on something called relative risk reduction (RRR), a vague and misleading postulation that exaggerates the vaccine’s effectiveness.  Then the CDC boasts this inflated number to the media, who passes it on to you.

Did you know when the flu is a virus?  Like any virus, it has thousands or even millions of strains.  Sadly, when they make the vaccine, experts play fortune teller.  They try to predict next year’s common strains and put those strains into their product.  However, when you look at the number of strains out there, the odds are stacked against them.  However, your immune system remembers how to kill every virus it encounters.  This makes your immune system more effective than the vaccine.

An Alternative Approach

At Redmond Ridge Nutrition, we take a unique approach to supporting healthy immune function.  Did you know your immune system needs protein and protein-based enzymes to work properly?  This is precisely why we focus on supporting healthy protein digestion, absorption and use to help your immune system keep the flu at bay.  After all, the flu vaccine success is dismal.

Are you concerned about staying healthy? Are you worried about the long term harmful effects of vaccines?  If so, you can contact us one of several ways to set up a consultation. You can reach us on the web, stop by our office in Redmond, WA, or call us at 425-868-0120. Then I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life.

Neck Pain affects Coordination and Balance

Neck Pain affects Coordination and Balance.  Minor neck pain is a common occurrence in our society.  While many people like you ignore it because it’s a minor problem that usually goes away on its own, this may not be the best idea.  Research shows that minor neck pain can affect your coordination and balance even in your legs.  Furthermore, research shows chiropractic can help.

Neck Pain affects Coordination and Balance.  According o research from PLOS-1, minor neck pain can affect your coordination and balance.  In fact, it can even affect the movement of your arms and legs.  Now, how in the world can some minor pain in your neck affect your entire health in such a profound way?  Well, let me explain that for you…

First of all, it’s important to remember that every signal that travels from the brain to your body has to pass through your neck.  To further complicate matters, the part of your brain that controls your movement and coordination crosses sides in the neck.  If you recall, the left side of the brain controls the right side of your body and vis. versa.  This means, at some point, the nerves, or wires, have to cross sides.  Well, this happens in the neck.

Neck Pain affects Coordination and Balance

To make matters worse, sensation from your entire body is also inhibited by even the slightest neck pain.  Remember your neck is a place where all the signals have to travel to get to and from your brain.  As a result, this area of your spinal cord needs a lot of band width.  Well, let me put it another way.  This are of the spinal cord needs more lanes in the highway than any other place.  Why?  Because this is where all of the traffic to and from your body merges.

If you’re experiencing even mild neck pain, this means that some type of stress is irritating the nerves in the neck.  Sadly, this irritation reduces the number of lanes in your highway.  As a result, there’s a traffic jam.  Of course, when there’s a traffic jam due to an accident, fewer signals can get through.  Additionally, they get through much slower.

Chiropractic Can Help

However, the good news is that chiropractic can help “clear the accident” to get the nerve traffic flowing completely and at full speed.  At Redmond Ridge Nutrition & Chiropractic we take a comprehensive approach to your neck problems, because we realize your minor neck pain has serious consequences.  We combine precise low force or traditional spinal corrections with home exercises, massage therapy and sometimes enzyme nutrition.  This “clears the accident” as quickly and completely as possible so your whole body works properly.

Do you suffer from even minor neck pain?  Are you missing out on work family or fun? This can be a sign of a more serious problems.  Please don’t wait.   Give us a call and set up a consultation, or contact us on the web. I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life. Then we can schedule a thorough examination.  At that time I’ll order or examine any images and perform a thorough examination so we can discover the cause of your suffering.  After that we can either put the best plan in place, or provide you with the right referral.
