Brain Health – Inflammation is the Enemy

Brain Health – Inflammation is the Enemy.  It seems we’re all trying to fight the inevitable.  Once we reach a certain age, we don’t want to get older.  In fact, many companies make a fortune selling the false hope of “anti-aging”, or products or services to make us look or feel younger.  However, you may want to start with your brain.

Brain Health – Inflammation is the Enemy.  According to research from The American Physiological Society, serious brain diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other serious brain problems are on the rise in the U.S.  To make matters worse, trends show they strike younger people each year.  As it turns out, researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison discovered the cause.

According to this break-through study, your brain ages faster than the rest of you.  That’s right, your brain gets older faster than the rest of your body.  The faster your brain ages, the sooner you’ll develop serious life-limiting brain problems like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and many more.  However, I think I can guess the next question on your mind.  What cases this accelerated aging in our mind?

The Real Enemy to Brain Health

According to the study, the problem has to do with overactive cells in the brain that cause excess inflammation.  This inflammation speeds up the aging process in the brain.  In turn, this leads to the serious brain issues I mentioned earlier.  If I said it once, I said it a million times, chronic inflammation is the cause of chronic disease.  However, what causes chronic inflammation?  As it turns out, the culprits are physical, nutritional and emotional stress.

Prevention is Key to Brain Health

At Redmond Ridge Nutrition, we take a complete approach to brain health.  While I don’t treat disease, including Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s, it seems that prevention is the key.  Especially since these diseases have no real treatment.  Furthermore, the key to prevention is avoiding chronic inflammation.  Through a combination of enzyme nutrition, and either traditional or low force spinal corrections, we can support healthy low inflammation levels, which can support healthy brain function for years to come.  Of course, all of our testing and treatments are scientific and based on sound medical principles.

Would you like to feel younger?  Are you concerned about your brain health?  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. I will even look over your x-rays to 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.

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?

Alzheimer’s Disease, Mediterranean Diet

Alzheimer’s Disease, Mediterranean diet.  As you read this article, experts are presenting new research to the Alzheimer’s Association International conference.  The meeting takes place in London.  In a nutshell, experts found that found healthy older adults who followed the Mediterranean lowered their risk of dementia by a third.  The same was true for those who followed a similar MIND diet.

Alzheimer’s Disease, Mediterranean diet.  According to the lead author, eating a healthy plant-based diet improves your ability to think.  This improvement lowers your risk of thinking diseases by up to 35%.  This information comes from the lead author, Claire McEvoy.  The research comes from the University of California.  Specifically, it originates from Francisco’s school of Medicine.  Because the study was nationwide, and focused on an older population, the findings apply to the general public.

“While 35% is a greater than expected decrease for a lifestyle choice, I am not surprised,” said Rudolph Tanzi.  Rudolph directs the Genetics and Aging Research Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital.  Rudolph also recently co-authored a book with Deepak Chopra on genes and aging.  In addition, “the activity of our genes is highly dependent on four main factors: diet, exercise, sleep and stress management,” said Tanzi.  “Of these, perhaps diet is most important.”

In Summary

The study investigated the diets of approximately 6,000 older Americans with an average age of 65.   In fact, researchers found that those who followed the MIND or Mediterranean diet had between a 30% to 35% lower risk of brain impairment.  Furthermore, the more people stayed on those diets, the better their brain function was.

Fuel AND a Spark

Of course, giving your body the best vital nutrients isn’t enough.  Your body also has to be able to use those precious vitamins and minerals.  This is where enzymes come in.  Sadly, as you age, your body’s ability to produce enzymes declines.  In fact, by age forty, your enzyme production goes down by around 70%.  If you think of food as fuel for your fuel tank, you can think of enzymes as a spark from your spark plug.  The best fuel in the world does no good without a spark and Vis. Versa.  This is why I specialize in Enzyme Nutrition.  The right enzyme supplements can help vital nutrition get passed an aged digestive system. Furthermore, the right enzymes can help aging organs and systems use those crucial nutrients.
