Chiropractic Improves Mood by Helping your Posture

Chiropractic improves mood by helping your posture.  In a previous radio show, I talked about how your posture affects your mood.  In fact, I site research from Harvard University.  However, do you realize that Chiropractic care can improve your posture.  As it follows, this can improve your mood.

Chiropractic improves mood by helping your posture.  Research published in 2015 outlined how chiropractic helps fix your posture.  As a result, it can improve your mood.  In fact, the same research along with research from Harvard University both support this idea.  How is this possible?  According to the Amy Cuddy, from Harvard University, an upright posture actually makes you feel more powerful, confident and happy.

OK, I think I know what you’re thinking.  How in the world can your posture affect your mood?  According to the Harvard research, changing your posture actually changes your body chemistry.  In fact, it affects the very brain chemicals responsible for your mood.  However, I must also mention that the opposite is also true.  That is, your mood chemicals also affect your posture.

Children and Probiotics

Children and Probiotics: It seems that many adults are taking a probiotic these days.  In fact, I would venture to say that probiotics are probably one of the best selling supplements.  However, many do not realize that some children may need  probiotics as well.  This article will attempt to explain why.

Children and Probiotics

In order to explain why some children may need probiotics, I must first explain how the bacteria grow in a newborn.  Baby’s first exposure to bacteria happens in the birth canal.  Additionally, babies are born face down.  This means they are facing mother’s back side.  This ends up being their second dose of bacterial flora.  In fact, this jump starts the growth of beneficial bacteria in infants.  In fact, do you remember last week’s article when I stated there are probiotics in the gi tract, on the skin, in the bladder, reproductive organs and even the lungs?

An infant’s second exposure to probiotics is during breast feeding.  Actually, there are two sources during breast feeding.  First of all, the baby gets bacteria when their mouth contacts mom’s skin.  Meanwhile, the actual breast milk provides yet another source.  The final exposure comes from their environment.  In fact, there’s a reason many infants put everything in their mouth.  They’re growing their helpful bacterial population.

Things that hinder bacteria growth

Here are some problems that hinder the growth of probiotics.  A surgical birth (C-section) completely bypasses the birth canal.  In fact, it also bypasses and mom’s back side.  You see there are beneficial bacteria both places.  The germs in these locations jump start growth inside your newborn child.  With a surgical delivery, your baby never receives a dose of these helpful germs.  Using formula, or even bottle-feeding breast milk can also have an adverse effect.  Additionally, too sterile environment also limits exposure.  Use of antibacterial soaps actually kills off beneficial bacteria.  In fact, antibacterial soaps contain a highly cancerous chemical.  As a result, three states have completely banned their use.   Lastly, antibiotics will also kill the helpful germs in anyone.  While necessary, I always recommend a strong dose of probiotics during and after a course of antibiotics.

So, I think I can imagine what you’re thinking.  So what?  What exactly are the consequences to this?  In addition to digestive health, study after study shows that infants with a healthy probiotic population have many health benefits.  First of all, they are much less likely to develop behavioral problems when they get older.  These problems include ADHD, OCD, anxiety, depression, autism and much much more.  When they reach middle to old ages, they are also much less likely to be obese, develop diabetes, heart disease and many other life-shortening conditions.

Some Advice

If you’ve been paying attention, these simple tips can go a long way to help.  If you’re expecting, a vaginal birth is best.  Additionally, breast feeding is also preferred as well.  In fact, I recommend contacting the La Leche League for more advice.  Let your kids play in the dirt.  Keep them clean, but not too clean.  Kids with pets also have a healthy base of germs.  Lastly, avoid the use of antibacterial soap.

Each microbe as a specific job

Because each microbe in your body has a specific job, it’s important to know which ones you’re deficient in.  This is why before we put anyone on a generic probiotic, we perform scientific testing based on sound medical principals.  This way we can determine exactly how your body is deficient and provide the right enzymes and/or probiotics to help your body work properly.  In fact, I use five different probiotics in my office depending on the patient’s test results.

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, 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 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.

Saffron Boosts Mood and Helps with Depression

Saffron boosts mood: Several studies from Iran and China show that saffron is just as effective as Prozac at improving your mood.

Saffron boosts mood. Depression is now an epidemic.  Did you know that it’s on the rise in this country at an alarming rate?  In fact about 1 in 10 Americans suffer from depression, according to US Reports.  What’s more is that experts believe depression will be the number 2 cause of disability worldwide by 2020.  While many turn to prescription drugs for help, these meds come with some very serious side effects.  In fact, if you follow my articles, you know that some of these drugs increase your risk of suicide.  Sadly, in many cases they also fail to help. Did you know that about 90% of patients suffer from at least one serious side effect from these medications?

As a result, natural healthcare providers and their patients want a safer way to support healthy mood. That’s were saffron may help.  In fact other countries use Saffron for depression.  Fortunately, research suggests saffron is just as effective as most antidepressant pills.  These include Prozac and Imipramine.  However, saffron doesn’t have the adverse side effects.  Did you know that traditional Persian medical practitioners use saffron for depression?  Iranian researchers state that saffron may work in the same way as many antidepressants. In fact, two compounds in saffron help stabilize several brain chemicals that boost mood.

Enzymes and Healthy Mood

Another key factor in mental health is protein metabolism.  People who suffer from anxiety or depression often can’t digest, absorbing use protein properly.  In fact your body needs protein to make the chemicals that regulate mood.  Of course that’s where enzyme nutrition comes in.  Enzymes help vital nutrients get past a stressed body.  And while I don’t treat disease (including anxiety or depression) I can support both healthy mood and healthy brain chemistry.  Of course our testing is scientific and based on sound medical principles.  The solution typically involves dietary changes along with specific enzymes based on your test results.
