Supplement Fads cost Americans Millions, and lack research

Supplement Fads.  Did you ever notice that people buy vitamins as trends or fads?   In fact, isn’t magnesium the latest miracle cure?  Before that it was red yeast rice.  Even longer ago, it was probiotics and fish oil.  Sadly, these trends often outpace any research.  As a result, you’re playing roulette with your health.

Supplement fads.

While some of these supplements, like fish oil, have strong merits, many do not.  In fact, the only studies backing red yeast were quite flawed.  In the study, experts took the active ingredient from red yeast rice, and gave patients dosages that were way beyond realistic.  Sadly, all other studies showed no benefit.  However, many flocked to it like it was a miracle cure long before the release of any research.  When you realize that over half of all Americans like you take supplements, it’s scary to think many people are wasting their hard-earned money.

Sometimes, people will make decisions based on preliminary studies.  However, these studies do not validate the supplement’s benefits.  Instead, they only state that the pills may show benefit.  However, experts need to conduct more valid studies to confirm the benefits.  These trends turn out to be the latest supplement fads.

The Real Problem

Why are Americans looking for that magic bullet?  Sadly, because the Standard American Diet is so poor, many turn to supplements.  They hope that the “magic little pills” will replace the nutrition missing from their food.  Unfortunately, this gives some the excuse to eat however they want.  In fact, sometimes this rationale is subconscious.  However, there is no supplement that can replace your food.  This includes the latest supplement fads.  In fact, some supplements can be dangerous.  For example, two huge studies in the 1990s found that beta carotene pills actually increased lung cancer. Likewise, a clinical trial published in 2011 found that vitamin E increased the risk of prostate cancer by 17 percent. However, I need to point out this study “picked on” a certain form of vitamin E, and other forms do not have this problem.

As a result, there’s not short-cut.  The best way to get valuable nutrition is from your food.  Additionally, the best sources are fresh fruits and vegetables.  While some supplements, like fish oil and vitamin D, do have strong merit, you can even get these in your food.  In fact, that’s the best place to get them.

Why We’re Different

So, I bet I know what you’re thinking.  “Come on Doc, you sell supplements too.”  And yes, I do.  However, the pills I sell are quite different.  You see, the pills I sell are enzyme supplements.  They help your body digest, absorb and use the valuable nutrients from your food.  If you get the nutrients from your food, you don’t have to pop pills hoping they will replace your diet.  Additionally, we only make recommendations after thorough testing.  Look at it this way.  Let’s say you want to build a house.  Your food is the wood, concrete, drywall, windows, etc.  The enzymes are the construction crew that will take those valuable materials and make something useful out of them.  Without enzymes, your body cannot use the vital nutrients from your food, or supplements for that matter.

Of course, our testing and solutions are scientific and based on sound medical principals.  In fact, many of my patients end up spending less money on supplements because they need fewer.

We Can Help…

DAWC062 Chiropractic Philosophy with Dr. Luke Badman.  In this episode of Dr. Andy’s Wellness Corner, Dr. Andy interviews an expert in traditional chiropractic philosophy.  Luke Badman, D.C. practices in Lancaster, PA.  In addition to being a doctor, Luke has furthered his education by taking advanced classes on said philosophy.

In fact, did you know that chiropractic has little to do with pain.  However, it has everything to do with helping your body heal itself and work properly.  Does this sound familiar?  I tout this very idea when I talk about enzyme nutrition.  As the episode progresses, we compare the notions behind enzyme nutrition with the traditional chiropractic philosophy.

After that, we discuss how different doctors address nutritional stress differently.  Some use other approaches, while other simply have a referral network they work through.  Yet others specialize in certain aspects of health and healthy function.  Of course, as long as they help people, a they are all wonderful.

Dr. Badman

Dr. Badman has been practicing in Pennsylvania for the past ten years. In fact, it is a life-long passion of his.  Long ago, he experienced his first treatment after a martial arts tournament as a teenager.  Afterwards, his instructor suggested he get checked and adjusted. In fact, that was when was he was first exposed to the Chiropractic Lifestyle.  Especially because the natural approach and the study of nature really impacted him. He was quickly pulled into the world of natural wellness.

Insomnia? Try improving gut health.

Insomnia? Try improving gut health.  Did you know that between 50 and 70 million Americans like you suffered from sleep problems in 2017?  In fact, this information comes from the CDC.  However, hope exists.  Cutting edge research shows that improving your gut health can improve your sleep.

Insomnia? Try improving gut health.  Research from a top neuroscience journal published in January of 2017 showed that if you improve your gut health, you can improve your sleep.  This study was so ground-breaking that “Frontiers in Behavior Neuroscience” published the article.

Less Sleep, Shorter Life

For starters did you know that insomnia taxes your immune system the exact same way an infection does?  So, if you compromise your immune system through sleep deprivation, what happens when you catch a cold?   You’ve basically overwhelmed your immune system.  As a result, your immune system cannot keep up with demand.  However, there are many other long-term effects to sleep deprivation, including a shorter life span.  In fact, studies exist to back this up.

So just what are all of the complications of staying up too late?   For starters, did you know that driving while tired is about the same as driving with a 0.10 blood alcohol level?  That’s right, driving while tired is the same as driving drunk.  As I stated earlier some 50-70 million Americans just like you suffer from insomnia.

While the study focused on gut friendly foods and probiotics, a word of caution is important. After all, your body should support a healthy population all by itself.  As a result, constantly downing probiotics addresses the symptom, and not the cause.  It’s important to use the right combination of diet and enzyme supplements to create a healthy mucous layer.  Once your gut has a healthy mucous layer, your probiotics will thrive on their own.

Some Dietary Tips

In fact, here is a list of gut-friendly foods: Apples, Asparagus, Banana, Beetroot, Breast milk, Burdock root, Cashews, Chicory root, Couscous, Fennel bulb, Garlic, Grapefruit, Green peas, Jerusalem artichokes, Jicama, Konjac root, Leeks, Nectarines, Onion, Persimmon, Pistachios, Pomegranate, Savoy cabbage, Seaweed, Shallots, Snow peas, Tamarillo

Please remember to ferment your grains and beans and soak all nuts until they sprout.

Conversely, here is a list of things that can compromise gut health: Antibiotics, Conventionally raised meats, Processed foods, Excessive sugars, Agricultural chemicals, Antibacterial soap.

However, if this is a long-term problem, your healthy mucous layer was replaced by unhealthy biofilm.  Sadly, we have to get rid of the bio film first.

Our Unique Approach

At Redmond Ridge Nutrition, we take a comprehensive approach to gut health.  If biofilm is present, we use the right enzymes to break it down first.  Then the right combination of enzymes can create healthy mucous layers in the stomach, small intestines and large intestines.  Once each layer is healthy, then we can use the right prebiotics and probiotics to repopulate.  Once we repopulate, there is no need to continue taking them.

Do you have trouble falling or staying asleep?  Perhaps you’re concerned about a loved one.  Does it affect school, work, family or play?  If so, don’t wait.  Let us help you safely, effectively, and naturally without drugs or surgery. In fact, 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. If you do, I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life.  Together, we can determine if you are a good candidate for care. If you’re not, I’ll make every effort to provide the proper referral.

Medications Linked to Allergies and Asthma

Medications Linked to Allergies and Asthma.  With allergies and asthma on the rise since the 1980’s, one has to wonder what has changed.  However, remember that it takes genes thousands of years to change.  On top of that, our genetic makeup hasn’t change since we started walking on this planet.  In that case, what is the source if the increase in allergies and asthma?  According to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), certain medications may be at fault.

Sadly, all allergic reactions, including asthma, are the result of mistaken identity.  In fact, when you expose yourself to things like pollen, dust, pet dander or other allergens, your immune system attacks them.  Unfortunately, your immune system thinks they’re a foreign invader.  In fact, asthma is simply when your immune system attacks these things in the lungs or airways.  So, why in the world would your immune system start attacking something you’ve been exposed to all your life?  Otherwise, you would not suffer from allergies.

The Study

Recently, a new study was published in JAMA Pediatrics. In fact, the study suggests that certain medications are partly to blame.  In fact, the study blamed certain acid-suppressive medications and antibiotics during infancy for these allergic diseases.  Sadly, these diseases include asthma and general allergies.  The common ones are Prilosec, Nexium, ranitidine, lansoprazole and omeprazole.  Sadly, these are the most commonly used medications in America, according to a study by IRI.

According to Dr. Edward Mitre, about 8% of all children received a prescription for acid control.  Dr. Mitre was the lead author of the study.  Dr. Mitre is an associate professor in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at the Uniformed Services University in Bethesda, Maryland.
In fact, often your immune system is over active because of toxins.  As toxins build up in your body, your immune system goes on high alert.  Why?  Because your body knows toxins shouldn’t be there.  Afterwards, your immune system aggressively attacks anything foreign.  Sadly, while medication has its place, drugs contain many harmful toxins.  In fact, this could be why these drugs cause allergies.  However, I need to clarify that medications has its place.  Under the right circumstances, it saves lives.
At Redmond Ridge Nutrition & Chiropractic we take a complete approach to asthma.  First, our gentle and precise pediatric chiropractic techniques may help reduce asthma attacks.  After that, the right enzyme supplements can support healthy lung and immune function.  Of course, we only make recommendations after testing.  In fact, our testing is based on sound medical principals.  In addition, Dr. Marrone is highly skilled in pediatric chiropractic.  As a matter of fact, Dr. Marrone’s pediatric professor was the president of the ICPA at the time.

Chiropractic Care and Asthma

Chiropractic Care and Asthma. According to the American Lung Association, asthma is a lung disease that makes it harder to move air in and out of your lungs. While an inhaler is essential for emergency situations, research shows that chiropractic care can help.

Chiropractic Care and Asthma.  According to the American Lung Association, Asthma is a lung disease that makes it harder to move air in and out of your lungs.  In fact, asthma is chronic. In other words, you live with it every day.  Sadly, asthma can be serious, and even life threatening.  Unfortunately, there is no cure for asthma, but it can be managed so you live a normal, healthy life.

With asthma, the airways in your lungs are often inflamed. This swelling makes your lungs more sensitive to “triggers.”  A trigger could be a cold or the weather, or even things such as dust, chemicals, smoke and pet dander.  When you breathe in a trigger, your airways swell even more. This narrows the space for the air to move in and out of the lungs. The muscles that wrap around your airways also can tighten, making breathing even harder. When that happens, it’s called an asthma “attack.”  In fact, this asthma attack is an allergic reaction to a trigger.  So, if you suffer from asthma, your immune system is overactive.

Chiropractic Care and Asthma – Research

According to the International Pediatric Chiropractic Association (ICPA), there are 22 research publications regarding chiropractic and children with asthma.  In fact, the research shows strong evidence that chiropractic helps children who suffer from asthma.  However, I want to be clear that chiropractic care is not a substitution for an emergency inhaler.  However, there are cases where chiropractic care eliminated the need for an inhaler.

At Redmond Ridge Nutrition & Chiropractic we take a multistep approach to asthma.  First our precise pediatric chiropractic techniques may help reduce asthma attacks.  Together with the right enzyme supplements to support healthy lung and immune function.  Of course, we only recommend treatment and supplements after testing that is based on sound medical principals.  Dr. Marrone is highly skilled in pediatric chiropractic.  As a matter of fact, Dr. Marrone’s pediatric chiropractic professor was the president of the ICPA at the time.
