DAWC 050 Scientific Holistic Health

Scientific Holistic Health.  There is an exciting new branch of health and wellness care out there.  In fact, maybe you’ve heard of it.  Furthermore it is growing in popularity with each passing year.  It is called Holistic Health.  However, trying to find the science in many holistic approaches can be difficult.  This is because many holistic practitioners practice a form of holism that involves “energy work.”

Before I continue, I want to be absolutely clear about something.   There is nothing wrong with “energy work” of it works for both the health care professional and the patient.  However, when I started my wellness career, I searched for a holistic approach that I could rely on science to explain.  In fact, this is one of the many reasons I landed on enzyme nutrition.

In this breakthrough episode, learn about the difference between the allopathic approach to crisis care, versus the holistic approach to wellness care.  You will also learn when each is appropriate.  After all, both philosophies have their place.

Furthermore, Dr. Andy will lead you through some clear examples showing the difference between allopathic intervention and a holistic way to support a properly working body.  In fact he even delves into some issues that are on the rise in our great nation.  These include issues with blood sugar, bone density and fatigue.

Nudexta pushed on the Elderly, Dangerous

Did you know there is a new little red pill (Nudexta) big pharma pushes on our edlerly?  This pill is a new medication called Nudexta.  What does it do?  Supposedly, it controls random laughing and crying.  Sadly, it also comes with a host of hidden dangers.

Nudexta pushed on the Elderly.  The maker of a little red pill designed it to treat a rare condition.  However, despite the rarity of this condition, the company makes hundreds of millions of dollars each year.  Why?  Because it aggressively targets nursing home inhabitants.  Sadly, this drug is usually unnecessary and even unsafe, according to a CNN investigation.  What’s worse?  Your tax dollars are paying for it.

In fact, this new little red pill is called Nudexta.  Additionally, doctors use Nudexta to treat sudden and uncontrollable laughing or crying.  Actually, it is a disorder called pseudobulbar affect, or PBA.  However, according to the drug’s maker, PBA affects less than 1% of the population.  Sadly, the makers now use it for treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis and ALS.  You may have heard of ALS by its more common name; Lou Gehrig’s disease. However, the FDA never cleared Nudexta for treatment of these diseases.

The Drug

Just how is the maker getting doctors to prescribe this drug?  Sadly, the answer is simple and will shock you.  The company financially rewards medical doctors for prescribing it.  According to CNN News, “Since 2012, more than half of all Nuedexta pills have gone to long-term care facilities. The number of pills rose to roughly 14 million in 2016, a jump of nearly 400% in just four years, according to data obtained from QuintilesIMS, which tracks pharmaceutical sales. Total sales of Nuedexta reached almost $300 million that year. ”  What’s worse is that the drug has not been adequately tested on elderly patients.  Even more controversial, many patients report doing much better without the drug than with it.

While I want to be clear that medication does have its place, it is a tool.   Unfortunately, one can use or mis-use any tool.  However, when doctors mis-use medication, patients often pay the price.

A Different Approach

However, did you know there are other options available.  while some of you do rely on medications to manage or treat an illness remember they can damage your digestion, kidneys and/or liver.  In this case, enzyme nutrition can help support healthy function of these three vital aspects of health.  Second, while enzyme nutrition does not diagnose or treat disease, it can help your body work the way it’s supposed to.  If your body works properly, it is much less prone to disease.  Furthermore, if you are less prone to disease, you are less likely to need medication that has toxic side effects.

Do you need more help?

Are you concerned about your health?  Are you sick and tired if being processed through the American health care system like a piece of cattle?  Is everyone coming up with a different buzz word for your problems?   Are you missing out on work family or fun? If so, contact us and set up a consultation or call us at 425-868-0120. 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.

Shin Pain and Nutrition

Chronic Shin Pain and Nutrition.  Do you suffer from chronic shin pain?  Have you tried PT, orthotics and chiropractic without success?  All of these are great therapies when your problem stems from physical stress.  But what if your problem was nutritional in nature?

Shin Pain and Nutrition – When most people have pain in their calf, they usually seek orthotics, PT, or even chiropractic care.   As long as your problem is physical in nature, all of these are wonderful interventions.  Common physical causes included constant stress from work, or exercises, injuries or imbalances from stress or surgery.  In fact, the most common physical shin injury is called “shin splints”.  But what if your pain keeps coming back?  This may be a sign your calf pain may come from nutritional problems.

In fact, here are some signs that your calf pain may come from nutritional problems…

  • Limited ankle movement, especially when pointing the toes down
  • Deep bone or join pain
  • Painful or weak teeth
  • Swollen feet or ankles
  • Recent trauma, accident or injury
  • Frequent infections

How to Tell

Often times this can be a sign that your body has difficulty processing and using proteins for tissue repair.    If you are eating enough of these essential nutrients, it may be your body has trouble digesting, absorbing or using these precious vitamins and minerals.  It’s important to remember that your body needs enzymes in order to digest, absorb and use protein.  It’s also important to remember that vitamins are only co-enzymes.  In fact, they cannot do their job without the right enzymes in place.

OK, I know what you’re thinking.  How can I tell the difference?  At Redmond Ridge Nutrition, we can perform objective tests based on sound medical principals to find where the actual source of stress exists.  Once we figure that out we can put a plan in place to make sure your body gets the vital nutrition it needs.  In addition, we can help your body properly digest, absorb and use those precious building blocks to health.

If your problem is mechanical in nature the right combination of chiropractic care, orthotics and home exercises may be the key.  We can help with that too.

Does this sound familiar?

Foot Pain, Fatigue and Nutrition

Foot Pain, Fatigue and Nutrition.  Do you suffer from chronic pain on the bottom of your foot?  Custom orthotics not working?  Are you always tired?  If so, your foot pain is likely nutritional in nature.

Foot Pain, Fatigue and Nutrition.  Many Americans suffer from foot pain.  Like most types of pain many make the assumption that their problem is physical in nature.  While this is the most likely scenario, if you suffer from chronic foot pain and nothing has helped, the problem may lie with nutrition.  In fact It may mean that you’re either not eating enough dietary fiber, or that your body has difficulty digesting, absorbing and using fiber.  Of course the last possibility is that you’re not eating the right type of fiber.

So where should your fiber come from?  I bet you guessed whole grains.  Am I right?  Sadly, that is not such a good idea.  Whole grains contain several chemicals which actually harm your digestive tract.  In fact, many refer to them as anti-nutrients, and there are two types.  The first type is enzyme inhibitors.  These inhibitors interfere with your body’s enzymes.  Your body needs these precious enzymes to break down your food so your body can digest it.  Otherwise you can’t get the valuable nutrients the food provides.  The second type of anti-nutrient is harmful agents that can kill the healthy probiotic population in your small intestine.  There is, however, a work around.  Fermented grains do not pose these problems.  What most people don’t realize is that your fiber should come from fresh fruits and vegetables.

How can I tell?

So how can you tell if your foot pain is nutritional in nature?   Here is a list of problems you may experience along with your foot pain:

  • Always tired
  • Lack of appetite
  • Grinding of the teeth
  • Unexpected weight loss or difficulty gaining weight
  • Stiff ankles

These may be signs that your pain may be from a nutritional problem, and not a physical one.  If you call our office and set up a consultation, we can do some preliminary testing to either confirm or rule out nutritional stress.  We accomplish this using precursory testing and Bio Impedance Analysis.  Both of which are scientific and based on sound medical principles.  If it is physical in nature, we can help with the right combination of cutting edge orthotics, home exercises and chiropractic care to get back up and running.

Chronic Neck Pain Nutrition

Chronic Neck Pain Nutrition – your pain may be Nutritional.  Many Americans just like you suffer from neck pain on a regular basis.  Often, you turn to chiropractic, physical therapy or medications for relief.  While most people think of the obvious physical stress, you may not realize that your chronic neck pain may be due nutritional problems.

Chronic Neck Pain Nutrition – your pain may be Nutritional.  According to WebMD, over 100 million Americans suffer from chronic neck pain.  In fact treatment costs our nation over 600 billion dollars per year between treatment and missed work.  For immediate relief, many turn to medications, physical therapy and chiropractic care.  In fact, these are great options if your neck pain  came from physical stress.  But if what nutritional stress caused your neck pain?  Then physical treatments will only provide temporary relief.

So how can you tell if your neck pain may be from a nutritional problem rather than a physical problem?  Here are some other symptoms you might see:

  • Stiffness in the morning, or after rest
  • Chronic pain in the neck, upper ribs and/or shoulder(s)
  • Dry Skin, Dandruff, or Hair Loss,
  • Difficulty conceiving (women), or low sperm count (men)
  • Frequent blisters or cold sores
  • Scaly skin patches

So what does this mean?  How do you alter your diet to address the problem?  These are signs that either your not getting enough healthy fats in your diet, or, your body has trouble processing them.  If you’re not getting enough, simple increase healthy fats and iodine in your diet.  But what if you’re getting enough from your diet and still have some of these issues?  In these cases it means your body may have trouble digesting, absorbing or using healthy fats.  In these cases, blood tests will usually show high triglycerides and indications of slow metabolism.  Meanwhile a 24 hour urine analysis will show high calcium loss.

Our Approach

At Redmond Ridge Nutrition & Chiropractic, we use a scientific approach to see how your body digests and uses healthy fats.  These tests can include an organ stress test, a 24 hour urine analysis, and possible blood work.  Our testing and analysis is based on sound medical principals.  Once we have a clear understanding of where the stress lies, the proper dietary changes and enzyme supplements help your body work the way it’s supposed to.
