Sitting undoes Exercise – sitting can cancel your workout

Sitting undoes Exercise – sitting can cancel your workout.  There are many reasons I became a chiropractic physician.  Of course I’m into natural health.  I also wanted to help people.  But in addition to that, because I didn’t want to sit behind a desk all day long.  Well, new research shows that sitting can actually cancel out your workout.

Sitting undoes Exercise.  This data comes from the Annals of Internal Medicine, Jan 20 2015.  This study mined through piles of research data from a multitude of sources.  These sources include MEDLINE, PubMed, EMBASE, CINAHL, Cochrane Library, Web of Knowledge, and Google Scholar.  They were looking at the association between time spent sitting vs. overall health.  To accomplish this, experts looked at hospitalizations, all-cause mortality, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer in adults independent of physical activity.

The study concluded that sitting for long periods decreased life span and chronic disease rates no matter how active the subject.  In other words, it doesn’t matter how much you exercise, sitting for a long time will shorten your life.  In fact it will also increase your risk of heart disease, cancer, type two diabetes and other chronic diseases.  And just to be clear, these risks increase no matter how much you exercise.

Some Practical Advice

So what can you do to counter this?  For starters, get a standing work station.  If you have to collaborate with coworkers, get up and go to their office or cubicle, rather than calling, emailing or chatting.  When I was in corporate America, I used a small water bottle.  That way I’d have to keep getting up to refill it.  Take a walk over lunch.  When you drive somewhere, park far away from your destination.  That way you have to walk.  Take the stairs instead of the elevator.

Of course the right nutrition, exercise, and chiropractic care can help.  The proper diet and enzyme supplements will provide your vital organs with the vital nutrients it needs to work properly.  And we all know a body that works properly is less prone to disease.  Chiropractic care can keep your bones, nerves, muscles and joints healthy so you can continue to stay active.  Chiropractic care also keeps your nerve supply healthy further supporting healthy organ function.

We’re Here to Help

Redmond Ridge Nutrition & Chiropractic & offers a safe, natural, and effective approach for to keeping your body healthy so you can stay active.  We use a unique combination of traditional or low force chiropractic care, home exercises, enzyme nutrition, and massage therapy. This combined approach addresses both chemical and physical stress.

While enzyme nutrition does not diagnose or treat disease, it helps your body digest absorb and use vital nutrients essential to tissue repair. And of course this includes supporting the healing process of bones, ligaments, muscles, nerves and discs. These tissues include bones, nerves, muscles (tendons) and ligaments. Not only that, the testing is scientific and based on sound medical principles.

Are you concerned about staying active? If so, give us a call and set up a consultation. I will personally sit down with you and talk about your concerns and how they affect 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.

Adverse effects from cosmetics and conditioners

Increased complaints about cosmetics and hair conditioners.  According to JAMA, the number of adverse effects from certain cosmetics, shampoos and conditioners rose over 300% in the last two years.

According to the June 26, 2017 edition of JAMA, customers are reporting a growing number of adverse effects from certain brands of makeup, cosmetics and hair care products.  These products include lip balms, lipsticks, and eyelash makeups and much more.  The company in question is WEN.  The questionable chemical used in these products is called a prostaglandin.  Apparently, experts found over 21,000 complaints of hair loss and/or skin irritation from these products.  Despite this astronomical number, experts believe the number of people affected is actually much higher.  Why?  Because there is a high percentage of people who don’t report these adverse effects.  They just stop using the product and move on to something else.  Sadly, the number of recorded complaints increased over 300% in the last year alone.

When you’re the victim of an adverse reaction from some product you bought, what can you do?  Fortunately, there are several courses of action.  First of all seek medical treatment.  When you do be sure to tell your doctor that you believe your condition is the result of using that product. Of course, stop using that product right away.  You may also wish to contact an attorney to seek legal action.  Lastly, make sure you cleanse your body of the harmful chemicals left behind from using that product.

What do I detox?

Cleansing and detoxing are very popular in the world of natural wellness these days.  The problem is trying to figure out what to cleanse.  When your body reacts to harsh chemicals, these toxins can leak through the skin and enter your body.  Your body has three man filters to rid itself of these harsh chemicals.  They are the liver, kidneys and skin.  So how do you know which one(s) to cleanse?  Many resort to the “pop & pray” method.  They read something about some herb and go for it.  Others consult “Dr. Google” or “Dr. Bing.”

However, at Redmond Ridge Nutrition, we perform objective testing to determine which organs or systems show stress.  Then we use a combination of dietary changes along with the right enzyme supplements to help the organs of filtration rid your body of harsh toxic chemicals.  Remember that enzymes are the only chemical in the body that can actually do work, and every organ in your body requires these precious enzymes. Sadly, by age forty, your body’s ability to make these vital enzymes reduces up to 70%.

Our Approach

Do you want to cleanse your stressed organs?  Would you like to know which organs are actually stressed so you can help them work properly?  Are you looking for an approach to natural health care based on sound medical principles?  We can help the organs of filtration work the way their supposed to with the right dietary and supplemental support.

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.

Digestive problems linked to Depression

Digestive problems linked to Depression:  A study published in Gastroenterology shows a strong connection between gut health and emotional health.  This comes as no surprise, as your body uses Serotonin for both.

Depression and gut health.  Did you know that there is far more serotonin in your gut than in your brain?  The May 2017 issue of Gastroenterology contains a study showing a possible link between gut health and mood.  In fact the study found a very strong link between digestive inflammation and depression.  In a double blind placebo study, subjects who took supplements for digestive health showed sizable mood improvements over the placebo control group.

It’s important to remember that your body needs serotonin not only for mood but for digestive health as well.  Additionally, many of you will remember the multitude of articles I’ve released showing the gut-brain connection.  In fact experts now refer to the gut as the second brain, since it actually contains more nerves than the spinal cord.  Furthermore, the gut also has outbound nerves.  This means it may have the ability to command other organs and tissues. Clearly there is a strong connection between gut health and brain function.

Our Approach

Your brain and digestive function are a direct result of your digestive health. And while I don’t diagnose or treat any disease (including depression), I can help support healthy digestion.  And of course this can support healthy mood. This, in turn, promotes healthy brain function. 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 digestive health or mood? 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.

Alzheimer’s Disease – enzymes are crucial

Alzheimer’s disease – The right enzymes are crucial.  As I was looking for enzyme research I found two very interesting research papers on this serious mental condition.  One paper warned that certain enzymes can cause Alzheimer’s.  Meanwhile, the other showed yet other enzymes may help.  Obviously getting this right is critical.

According to Psych Central’s Mayo Clinic researchers discovered an enzyme that destroys a toxic protein.  This harmful protein accumulates in the brains of people who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease.  This protein is known as Beta Amyloid, for those of you who like big words.  The enzyme, known as BACE2 breaks down these proteins.  As a result, they may help support healthy brain activity in patients who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease.

However, this is where you need to use extreme caution.  You see, BACE2 is closely related to another enzyme, known as BACE1.  BACE1 builds this protein.  As a result, it could actually cause Alzheimer’s disease, or make it worse.  This, of course, is why using “Dr. Google” to help you decide what supplements to take can be quite risky.

According to Psych Central, Alzheimer’s disease is the most common memory disorder in the U.S.  In fact, it affects more that 5.5 million people in this great nation.  However, yet researchers continue to search for an effective treatment of this horrible illness.

Enzymes to Support Healthy Brain Function

While I don’t diagnose or treat any disease (including Alzheimer’s disease), I can help support healthy brain function. And of course this, in turn, promotes healthy memory recall. 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 brain health?  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.

Fried Potatoes – eating them increases the risk of death

Eating Fried Potatoes comes with the increased risk of death.  According to research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, those who eat fried potatoes on a regular basis do not live as long.  In fact, scientists published the study just this year (2017).

Fried Potatoes: In the study, there were several test groups.  These groups were divided by how often the subjects ate fried potatoes.  In addition, experts created two control groups.  One control group ate zero potatoes while the other ate potatoes, but not fried potatoes.  The study involved over 4000 participants.  When scientists analyzed the data, here’s what they discovered.  Participants who ate fried potatoes twice a week or more were at the highest increased risk of mortality.  However, subjects who consumed unfried potatoes were not at risk.  The study concludes that eating fried potatoes on a regular basis does seem to shorten your life.

What you put into your body plays such a crucial role in your health.  But it’s also important to take a step back and look at not only what we eat, but how we prepare our food.  Too often I see people eating food that would be healthy, if only they prepared it in a healthy manner.  I’ll never forget I was at a nutritional conference one year.  One of the participants had announced they just started their paleo diet.

The funny part is, once they announced their “conversion” to paleo, they proceeded to open up an eat a bag of potato chips.  As someone who used to teach the paleo diet at several colleges, I can tell you there’s nothing paleo about potato chips.

There’s no one Diet

At Redmond Ridge Nutrition & Chiropractic, we can teach you how to eat to your own genetic strengths.  Together with our effective enzyme testing we can also help your body get the most out of your food using the right enzyme supplements.  Of course we approach this based the results of a highly detailed examination.  This examination looks for the areas of your body under the most stress.  The testing is also scientific and based on sound medical principles.

Are you concerned about your body mass or overall health?  Would you like to eat to your own genetic strengths?  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.

Blood Pressure Medication can Shorten your Life

Blood pressure medication can shorten life.  While every medication has its place, doctors often administer blood pressure medication to people who are border line.  According to a huge study by Kaiser Permanente, this may not be the best idea.  In fact, it could shorten your life.

Blood pressure medication can shorten life.  The Merck Manual defines high blood pressure as systolic pressure over 140 mmHg, diastolic pressure over 90 mmHg, or both.  If you have high blood pressure, it can lead to a host of serious health problems.  As a result, you really need to take care of it.  Of course, diet and exercise are the best ways to handle it.  Even the almighty Merck Manual agrees.  In case you’re wondering, the Merck Manual is the text book on diseases.  In fact most health care education programs use it from medical school to chiropractic school.

If you have high blood pressure and can’t control it through diet and exercise, medical intervention may be your only choice.  Again, left untreated high blood pressure can lead to blindness, heart failure, stroke, kidney failure and death. So please don’t mistake this article as stating that high blood pressure medication is bad in all circumstances.  Like everything, it has its place.

The Research

However, Kaiser Permanente conducted a study where they analyzed over 400,000 hospital records.  Of course all of them were taking medication.  They found that patients whose readings were between 130/60 and 139/79 — a range doctors consider “pre-hypertension” — had the lowest kidney failure rates. However, patients with “ideal” readings had a much higher risk of kidney failure.

“Many studies of people with high blood pressure have shown that bringing extremely high blood pressure with the top number ranging from 190 to 200, down to readings of about 150 show resounding improvements in the risk for strokes, kidney failure, and heart attack,” said study leader nephrologist and hypertension expert John J. Sim, M.D.

So, we made the assumption that if we further lowered it, even to levels under 120, that would be even better,” he told Newsmax Health. “The truth is that no studies have demonstrated that.”

One of the main reasons doctors prescribe these drugs is to bring down the systolic blood pressure to 120 or lower.  Remember that’s the top number.  However, given what we now know, this may be a fatal mistake.  In fact the study showed patients whose top (systolic) readings dropped into the 120 to 129 range had about a 12% increased risk of death or kidney failure.  However, those with readings between 110 and 119 were 81 percent more likely to die or suffer kidney failure.

Dr. Sim made a point to emphasize this only applies to those whose reduced their blood pressure with medication.  It does not apply to those with naturally low blood pressure.

Multiple Causes

You have to remember that many problems can lead to high blood pressure.  These include adrenal problems, kidney problems, liver problems, heart problems, and brain problems; not to mention dietary issues.

While I don’t treat diseases, including high blood pressure, I can help your body work the way it’s supposed to.  This includes nutritional support for healthy function of the adrenals glands, kidneys, heart, liver and brain.  This support includes dietary changes with the right enzyme supplements. Research also shows that chiropractic may help support healthy blood pressure.  However, I only make recommendations after scientific testing based on sound medical principles.

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.
