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.

Are you concerned about your immune health, chronic inflammation, or helping your body avoid cancer*?  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.

Chiropractic Helps Digestion

Chiropractic Helps Digestion.  Did you know that the best selling meds in America are for indigestion? These include antacids, and acid blockers.  However, most people don’t realize how dangerous these meds are.  In fact, they can lead to osteoporosis, cancer, heart disease, kidney failure, and infections.  Additionally, this information comes from the FDA’s own web site.  However, there are alternatives.  One of these effective choices is chiropractic care.

Chiropractic Helps Digestion.  According to News Target, Americans like you spend over $80 billion are spent each year on drugs for digestive problems.  You turn to these harmful meds with the hopes of relieving heartburn, acid reflux, bloating, gas, irritable bowel, constipation, diarrhea and other gut problems. Sadly, these are only symptoms of abnormal digestion.  Additionally, they are on the rise in our society. However, there is an alternative to these harmful medications.  Research shows that chiropractic helps digestion.  In fact, Chiropractic Technique (1996, 1994 and 1993), Chiropractic Pediatrics (1993), and Clinical Chiropractic (2008) all published research showing digestion improvement with care.

So, I bet I know what you’re thinking. “Just how can adjustments help with digestion?  After all they’re just for back pain, right?”  While that seems to be the popular idea, chiropractic actually has very little to do with pain.  Why?  Because our precise spinal care takes pressure off of vital nerves.  While over 92% of these nerves control every function in your body, including your digestion, less than 8% deal with pain.  In fact, your digestion is controlled by two main nerves.  First, the vagus nerve, which comes from the brain stem controls the first 2/3’s of your colon.  Afterwards, sacral nerves control the remainder of your colon.

Chiropractic Helps Digestion

On top of that, spinal nerves control your stomach, gall bladder, pancreas, and small intestines.  All of these are organs are critical for digestive health.  Taking pressure off of these important nerves helps brain messages control your gut.  This, in turn, helps your digestion.  However, there’s another wrinkle in this system.  There’s another part of your nervous system that shuts down digestion.  That system is your fight or flight system.  Furthermore, stress activates this system, which shuts down digestion.  Know anyone with stress?  In fact, irritation to this system can also activate this system brining digestion to a halt.   Fortunately, research also shows chiropractic lowers levels stress chemicals.  As a result, lowering stress chemicals through spinal care can also aid digestion.

A Complete, Natural Approach

At Redmond Ridge Nutrition & Chiropractic, we will do a thorough evaluation to get a complete picture of your overall digestive health. Once we have the results, we will work with you in three ways.  Of course, it’s important to remember that our tests are based on sound medical principles.  First, we will coach you through dietary changes.  Second, we will also recommend the right natural enzyme supplements to support healthy digestion.  Lastly, our safe and specific spinal corrections can help lower stress and take pressure off of vital nerves.  And while I don’t diagnose or treat any disease (including digestive diseases), I can help your body break down food properly.  

Are you concerned about digestive health? Do you spend hours or days at home waiting for your problems to ease? Are you missing out on work family or fun? If so, give us a call and set up a consultation, or contact us on the web. 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.

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.

We Can Help…

Digestive Health Problems and how it can impact your life.

Does that sound familiar?  Ok, maybe you don’t cycle like Mike does.  However, what have you given up doing the things you love because your digestive health is lacking.  This was Mike’s life.  Of course, it didn’t start out that way.  He started out simply missing a day here and there.  Then his problem progressed to a couple of times per month.  Lastly, it advanced to several days per week.  Mike’s passion, aside from his family, is cycling.  He is a life-long cycler.  Cycling gives Mike a peace and freedom he knows nowhere else.

Sadly, it all came to a halt when his digestive health problems intensified.  Mike is a patient in my office.  However, he started out as a chiropractic patient.  At first, cycling would aggravate his lower back.  The right combination of chiropractic care with home exercises alleviated his back issues.  However, Mike told me he was going from specialist to specialist regarding his bowel problems.  I told him about enzyme nutrition, and how it can support normal digestive health in a private setting.  While he wanted to discuss it further, I promised I would never pressure him.  Mike underwent a consultation.  The results showed promise that he was a good candidate for care.

He Wasn’t Sure…

However, Mike was skeptical.  After all, what does a Chiropractic Physician know about digestive health and nutrition?  I explained to Mike that I have over 200 hours of post-graduate education in nutrition alone, and that Medical Doctors these days receive less than five hours.  After that, I left it alone.  Months later, during a routine appointment, Mike explained that he was upset about his last checkup with his GI specialists.  As it turns out, according to Mike, the specialists took a lot of time explaining the problem.  However, according to Mike, they offered no real solution.  Mike was furious, “What’s the point of naming my condition if they can’t do anything about it?”

Mike finally decided to undergo enzyme nutrition testing.  In Mike’s case, he was lacking astringent enzymes in his digestive tract.  Additionally, the mucosal lining in his large intestine was compromised.  Together, these issues caused Mike’s digestive health problems.  Once Mike started taking the right enzymes and made the right dietary changes, he was back on his bike in no time.  In fact, Mike refers to his enzymes as “magic little pills.” (Disclaimer – his words, not mine).  In fact, I explained that there was no magic behind the enzyme supplements, only science.  The enzyme supplements help his digestive system work properly and support a healthy mucous layer in his colon.  However, he still refers to them as “magic pills”.

A Phone Call…

A few weeks later I got a phone call from a woman I whose voice I didn’t recognize.  It was Mike’s wife.  I met or spoke with her prior to that day.  She was in tears.  I asked her what was wrong, and she exclaimed “Nothing!  I just wanted to thank you for saving my husband’s life and our marriage.  He’s back on his bike, he’s happier, has more energy, and I love him like the day I met him.  I just wanted to tell you how grateful I was.”  I have to admit, after speaking with her, I teared up a little myself.

While every case is unique, contact us if you’ve been from doctor to doctor with no answers to your digestive health concerns.  Or perhaps the only solutions available in the medical field are surgery or drugs with harmful side effects.

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.
