Digestion and Cancer – Gut Health May be the Key.  Did you know cancer is the now the leading deadly chronic disease in modern nations?  Unfortunately, this includes the great U.S.A.  Sadly, this is due to the western lifestyle, which includes poor diet, exposure to harmful toxins, and inactivity.  As a result, we need to arm ourselves with a multitude of tools to keep this deadly disease away.

As it turns out, research from the American Association for Cancer Research shows that gut health can help.  However, how can your gut health influence cancer?  Let me explain.  Your gut health affects your inflammation levels.  Furthermore, tons of research form around the globe links chronic inflammation with cancer, and many other deadly chronic diseases.   As a result, when your digestion is healthy, this supports healthy low inflammation levels.  When you don’t suffer from chronic inflammation, your greatly reduce your risk of cancer.

Probiotics aren’t Enough

Armed with this information, I bet I can guess what you’re thinking.  Once you’ve read this, you’re ready to run out and replenish your supply of probiotics.  Am I right?  However, while probiotics are all the rage right now, they may not be enough.  If you’ll indulge me for a second, I’ll explain why.

You see, probiotics need a place to live.  In fact, they need a healthy place to live.  They require a healthy mucous membrane in your gut.  However, due to the Standard American Diet (SAD), most Americans do not have a healthy mucous layer in their gut.  This means you can hound down probiotics till the cows come home.  Since they don’t have a healthy place to live, they can’t thrive.  In fact, this is where enzyme nutrition comes in.

Enzymes Help your Body Rebuild your Gut

At Redmond Ridge Nutrition, we focus on supporting a healthy digestive tract.  Of course, this includes nutritional support for a healthy mucous membrane in your gut.  In fact, only the right combination of enzymes with the right probiotics help your body properly build a healthy home for these important healthy bacteria.  Additionally, since the Standard American Diet will break down this home, dietary changes are also key.

Cancer Patients Lack Potassium

Cancer Patients Lack Potassium.  Do you know what the trending mineral supplement is these days?  Well, it’s magnesium.  Meanwhile, others turn to calcium and even chromium for health and wellness.  Sadly, many ignore a mineral deficiency that may lead to cancer.

Cancer Patients Lack Potassium.   Actually, most Americans don’t eat enough potassium.  In a 2012 survey from the Food Surveys Research Group, your body needs about 4700 milligrams of potassium daily.  Unfortunately, the average American gets only about 2640 milligrams per day.  Potassium is a mineral that helps maintain a healthy fluid balance in our body. It also plays an important role in making sure our nerves and muscles work effectively.

The Research Goes WAY Back

In the 1950’s, The natural medicine pioneer, Max Gerson, MD, pioneered regarding cancer and metabolism. As a matter of fact, one of the conditions Gerson focused on was potassium deficiency. Furthermore, Gerson discovered that balanced potassium levels are vital for prevention.

In fact, according to Pub Med, 2015, potassium can help your body support healthy blood pressure levels.  How?  Potassium can help your body counter balance the effects of too much salt in your blood.  Excess salt in the blood is a leading cause of hypertension or high blood pressure.

The Cancer Potassium Connection

While all of that sounds helpful and interesting, how can low potassium lead to cancer?  The answer lies within your cells.  In fact, your cells use potassium to make energy, or ATP.  ATP is basically energy at the cell level.  However, cancer cells do not make ATP.  As a result, if you lack potassium, your normal cells cannot thrive.  On the flip side, cancer cells can thrive.  So, if cancer patients lack potassium, the problem only gets worse.

When stress affects the cells of your body, several things happen.  First, the cell loses potassium. Second, the cell accepts more sodium. Third, the cell swells with too much water.  This is called cellular edema. The result of this is that normal cells lose the ability to generate energy (ATP) in a healthy way. Afterwards, the cells are vulnerable to mutation; AKA cancer.

Signs of Potassium Deficiency

While every case is unique, and there are multiple conditions that can lead to the following symptoms, here are some signs of potassium deficiency.  However, before I list them, I need to make one thing clear.  If you suffer from lack of potassium, you there could be two problems.  First, you may not be getting enough, or second, your body isn’t absorbing or using it properly.  Here are some signs of a potassium problem.  These signs include: fatigue and weakness, constipation, muscle cramps, or an irregular heartbeat.  Since other serious diseases can also cause these symptoms, it’s crucial to see a qualified healthcare provider, rather than try to self-diagnose the problem.

Potassium Needs Enzymes

Potassium is known as an alkaline metal or mineral.  In order for your body to use these minerals properly, it requires enzymes.  Sadly, by age 40, your body can’t make enzymes like it used to.  In fact, your body makes 70% less enzymes by age 40.  As a result, adding potassium to your diet may not be enough.  This is why I focus on enzyme nutrition.  While you can get the proper nutrients in your diet, the right enzyme supplements help your body use those vital nutrients properly to support a happy and healthy lifestyle.

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.

Chiropractic Reduces Inflammation

Chiropractic Reduces Inflammation, and perhaps chronic disease.  In a recent study, subjects under chiropractic care showed decreased inflammation. Inflammation is the root cause of many diseases.  In fact, these diseases include high cholesterol, heart disease, cancer, stroke, obesity, diabetes and many more.

Chiropractic reduces inflammation, and perhaps chronic disease.  In the study researchers looked at blood markers that show inflammation.  Those markers include IL-6 and CRP.  In fact, doctors looked IL-6 and CRP levels as these patients went through a course of chiropractic care.  Surprisingly, in all patients receiving adjustments, these markers decreased over the course of treatment.  Sadly, those who did not receive adjustments showed no improvement.

I think I can guess your next question.  What’s the big deal about inflammation?  So, I have some chronic swelling, I think I can live with that.  However, you may not realize that chronic inflammation or swelling is the root cause of many of our top diseases.  In fact, these includes some of our nation’s top killers.

Sadly, these diseases include osteoporosis, heart disease, stroke, obesity, diabetes, and even cancer.  Even worse, these diseases are actually increasing in America.  That’s right, with all of our medical technology, our nation’s top killers are on the rise.  Since chiropractic reduces inflammation, it may help keep these deadly diseases away.

A Comprehensive Approach

At Redmond Ridge Chiropractic, we take a comprehensive approach to your spinal health.  As the research suggests, this can reduce inflammation and keep you happier and healthier for years to come.  In fact, I often say that chiropractic adds years to life and life to years.

Well, here’s some proof.  We use a combination of traditional or low force care coupled with a customized home exercise program, massage therapy traction, and enzyme nutrition.  You see, chiropractic heals the bones, joints and nerves.  Additionally, exercises and massage help heal the muscles.  Furthermore, traction helps heal the ligaments.  And lastly, enzyme nutrition helps your bones, nerves, joints, ligaments and muscles receive the vital nutrition they need to stay healthy.

Do you suffer from chronic inflammation?  Is a family member?  Are you concerned about the long-term effects?  If so, don’t wait.  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.

Sports and Junk Food – Junk food Sponsors our Sports

Sports and Junk Food: Our professional athletes are in tip top shape.  In fact, they exercise regularly, and stay on a very strict diet.  As a part of that diet, they have to avoid junk food.  Don’t you find it ironic that over three fourths of their sponsors promote that very same junk food?

Sports and Junk Food

It’s time for the big game.  In fact, you host a huge party at your house.  You spared no expense.  In fact, there’s a spread on your table that could feed an army.  It’s time.  The athletes come out onto the field, court, or rink.  Look at how in shape they are.  Meanwhile, everyone sits down in a comfortable couch or chair.  You fill your cup with beer or soda, and load your plate with chips, nachos, and dips.

Major Sports Promote Unhealthy Eating

According to Pediatrics Journal, published recently in 2018, over 76% of all major sporting ads and sponsors are for soft drinks or junk food.  That’s right, sports and junk food seem to go hand in hand.  Sadly, is these ads target our youth.  In fact, the sports programs sampled in the study had the most viewership between the ages of 2 and 17 years of age.

Just what, exactly, does this mean?  Well, it means that media is teaching your children unhealthy eating habits at an early age.  Furthermore, media reinforces those habits as your child ages. Now your child is a young adult.  Since these habits developed over a long period of time, they’re even harder to break.  As a result, like smoking, not starting is the best advice.

Obesity Causes Disease

It’s crucial to remember that chronic health problems are growing in America.  These problems include heart disease, cancer, high blood pressure, and diabetes.  Sadly, the number one cause of all of these diseases is obesity.  While the athletes you watch are avoiding these foods, your children are sitting on the couch watching while eating these foods.  Ironic, isn’t it?

Eat to your Strengths

In our office, we take a scientific approach to healthy eating.  In fact, our methods can help teach you and your children how to eat to your genetic strengths.  Together with the right enzymes you can maximize your nutrition.  As a result, you can reduce food cravings.  In fact, many of my patients no longer crave junk food.  Additionally, the right enzymes help your body digest, absorb and use the vital nutrients from your food.

Are you concerned about your eating habits?  Or, are your children eating too much junk food?  If so, don’t wait.  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.

The Human Papillomavirus Vaccine, effectiveness and risks

The Human Papillomavirus Vaccine (HPV): effectiveness and risks.  Over the years big pharma seems to develop more and more vaccines.  In fact, one recent vaccine is the Human Papillomavirus Vaccine.  However, however, before seeking these treatments, one must look at their risks and effectiveness.

Human Papillomavirus Vaccine, effectiveness and risks

According to the Mayo Clinic, the most common symptom of an HPV infection is warts. However, certain types of HPV infection cause cervical cancers.  Furthermore, over 100 varieties of human papillomavirus exist.  In fact, different types of HPV infections actually cause warts on different parts of your body. For example, some types of HPV infection cause warts on the feet, while others cause warts that mostly appear on the face or neck.

While most HPV infections don’t lead to cancer.  Some types of genital HPV can cause cancer of the lower part of the uterus that connects to the vagina (cervix). However, there may be a link between the HPV virus and other types of cancers.  These include cancers of the anus, penis, vagina, vulva and back of the throat.

It’s important to remember that HPV only effects about 2% of the population, according to the CDC.  Furthermore, an even smaller percentage of those cases lead to cancer.  The CDC also adds that “In most cases, HPV goes away on its own and does not cause any health problems.”  So, the question arises, what about the vaccine?

The HPV Vaccine

According to the British Medical Journal, the Human Papillomavirus Vaccine is about 21% effective.  The vaccine is actually called 9-Valent.  According to drugs.com, side effects include headache, anxiety, back, leg, or stomach pains, bleeding gums, chest pain, chills, cough, difficulty with breathing, difficulty with swallowing, fast heartbeat, general body swelling, hives, vomiting, seizures, painful breathing and joint pain. There are actually even more. In fact, I’ve only listed a fraction of the side effects. Actually, there are 45 side effects in all.  On the up side, however, 9-Valent does not contain mercury or thimerosal.  Wow, a vaccine with no mercury!  In fact, mark your calendar because that doesn’t happen very often.

Should You Get the Vaccine?

To be honest, I can’t advise you on whether or not you should get the vaccine.  Keep in mind it is about 21% effective.  As a result, if it were me, I probably wouldn’t even consider the vaccine until the effectiveness increased.  Disclaimer: that does not constitute advice.  When any treatment, and I do mean any treatment you should weigh the risks and the benefits.  If the benefits outweigh the risks, it may be a good idea.  Otherwise, you may want to avoid it.

Are There Alternatives?

There really is no “replacement” for the HPV vaccine.  However, remember that most of the time, HPV is harmless and will go away on its own.   While I don’t treat or prevent HPV, enzyme nutrition can help support a properly working immune system.  If your immune system works like it should, the likelihood of getting HPV goes way down.

 Are you concerned about healthy immune system function?  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, 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.
