DAWC 050 Scientific Holistic Health

Scientific Holistic Health.  There is an exciting new branch of health and wellness care out there.  In fact, maybe you’ve heard of it.  Furthermore it is growing in popularity with each passing year.  It is called Holistic Health.  However, trying to find the science in many holistic approaches can be difficult.  This is because many holistic practitioners practice a form of holism that involves “energy work.”

Before I continue, I want to be absolutely clear about something.   There is nothing wrong with “energy work” of it works for both the health care professional and the patient.  However, when I started my wellness career, I searched for a holistic approach that I could rely on science to explain.  In fact, this is one of the many reasons I landed on enzyme nutrition.

In this breakthrough episode, learn about the difference between the allopathic approach to crisis care, versus the holistic approach to wellness care.  You will also learn when each is appropriate.  After all, both philosophies have their place.

Furthermore, Dr. Andy will lead you through some clear examples showing the difference between allopathic intervention and a holistic way to support a properly working body.  In fact he even delves into some issues that are on the rise in our great nation.  These include issues with blood sugar, bone density and fatigue.

Enzymes help Sciatica

Enzymes help Sciatica.  Sciatic is a life-limiting condition causing pain, weakness and/or numbness down one or both legs.  It can affect work, sleep play, and your overall quality of life.  In addition to classical chiropractic and physical therapy, research shows enzymes support healthy spinal and nerve function.

Enzymes help Sciatica.  Several studies provide evidence that the right enzymes can help with various forms of chronic pain, including osteoarthritis, sciatica and low back pain.  Studies enrolling a total of more than 400 people compared a specific enzyme to the standard anti-inflammatory drug for the treatment of osteoarthritis low back pain and sciatica.  The results generally showed the benefits with the supplement to be about the same as with the medication. However, none of these studies included a placebo group.   Because of this experts require more research before they can draw any solid conclusion.

If you decide to visit our office for sciatica or related issues, the first thing we will do is sit down with you and talk.  The purpose is to find out the severity of your problem, and how it limits your life.  Specifically, how it affects your work, family and play time.  Then we will perform a detailed examination to uncover the root cause of your suffering.  If necessary, we will order any necessary imaging.  If you already have x-rays or MRI’s we will request them.  Either way we will perform a thorough review.  Once we’ve identified the cause, we will put a specific plan in place based on the type of impingement you suffer from. This includes the right specific chiropractic corrections, home exercises, specific traction and enzyme nutrition.  And of course, if you are a surgical candidate, we will provide you with an appropriate referral.

This combined approach has several advantages.  First of all, it helps heal ALL of the involved tissues.  Second, it helps your body digest absorb and use vital nutrients essential to tissue repair.  These tissues include bones, nerves, muscles (tendons) and ligaments.  When you address the problem from all four angles, your chances of success go way up.

Alzheimer’s Disease – enzymes are crucial

Alzheimer’s disease – The right enzymes are crucial.  As I was looking for enzyme research I found two very interesting research papers on this serious mental condition.  One paper warned that certain enzymes can cause Alzheimer’s.  Meanwhile, the other showed yet other enzymes may help.  Obviously getting this right is critical.

According to Psych Central’s Mayo Clinic researchers discovered an enzyme that destroys a toxic protein.  This harmful protein accumulates in the brains of people who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease.  This protein is known as Beta Amyloid, for those of you who like big words.  The enzyme, known as BACE2 breaks down these proteins.  As a result, they may help support healthy brain activity in patients who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease.

However, this is where you need to use extreme caution.  You see, BACE2 is closely related to another enzyme, known as BACE1.  BACE1 builds this protein.  As a result, it could actually cause Alzheimer’s disease, or make it worse.  This, of course, is why using “Dr. Google” to help you decide what supplements to take can be quite risky.

According to Psych Central, Alzheimer’s disease is the most common memory disorder in the U.S.  In fact, it affects more that 5.5 million people in this great nation.  However, yet researchers continue to search for an effective treatment of this horrible illness.

Enzymes to Support Healthy Brain Function

While I don’t diagnose or treat any disease (including Alzheimer’s disease), I can help support healthy brain function. And of course this, in turn, promotes healthy memory recall. 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 your brain health?  Does it affect your job, family or fun? Are you worried about the long term affects?  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.

Fried Potatoes – eating them increases the risk of death

Eating Fried Potatoes comes with the increased risk of death.  According to research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, those who eat fried potatoes on a regular basis do not live as long.  In fact, scientists published the study just this year (2017).

Fried Potatoes: In the study, there were several test groups.  These groups were divided by how often the subjects ate fried potatoes.  In addition, experts created two control groups.  One control group ate zero potatoes while the other ate potatoes, but not fried potatoes.  The study involved over 4000 participants.  When scientists analyzed the data, here’s what they discovered.  Participants who ate fried potatoes twice a week or more were at the highest increased risk of mortality.  However, subjects who consumed unfried potatoes were not at risk.  The study concludes that eating fried potatoes on a regular basis does seem to shorten your life.

What you put into your body plays such a crucial role in your health.  But it’s also important to take a step back and look at not only what we eat, but how we prepare our food.  Too often I see people eating food that would be healthy, if only they prepared it in a healthy manner.  I’ll never forget I was at a nutritional conference one year.  One of the participants had announced they just started their paleo diet.

The funny part is, once they announced their “conversion” to paleo, they proceeded to open up an eat a bag of potato chips.  As someone who used to teach the paleo diet at several colleges, I can tell you there’s nothing paleo about potato chips.

There’s no one Diet

At Redmond Ridge Nutrition & Chiropractic, we can teach you how to eat to your own genetic strengths.  Together with our effective enzyme testing we can also help your body get the most out of your food using the right enzyme supplements.  Of course we approach this based the results of a highly detailed examination.  This examination looks for the areas of your body under the most stress.  The testing is also scientific and based on sound medical principles.

Ulcerative Colitis – An Enzyme Problem?

Ulcerative Colitis is an inflammatory disease where your own immune system attacks your small intestine.  Research from PubMed indicates a lack of enzymes could be to blame.

Check out our radio show – Mondays 9-10 AM

AM 1150 KKNW, kknw.com, or FM 98.9 HD band 3,

or on a radio app from your smart device

Ulcerative Colitis and enzymes:  In fact, I recently found this research on Pub Med’s web site.  In the study, experts examined the lining of the small intestine in a group of patients with either Chron’s disease or ulcerative colitis.  When they examined samples, they consistently found a lack of digestive enzymes.  In fact over two thirds of all of the patients had very low enzyme levels.

While the study doesn’t reveal cause and effect, it really doesn’t matter.  Your body requires these crucial enzymes for digesting, absorbing and utilizing precious proteins and carbs from your diet.  Sadly, if you suffer either disease, you do not have enough enzymes to process your food.  Additionally, since these conditions are autoimmune, the right enzymes can help your body properly balance and manage a healthy immune response.  It’s also important to point out that this disease comes packaged with inflammation.  Did you know the right enzymes can also support your body’s ability to control inflammation?

So what happens when you can’t digest your food properly?  First of all, you fail to get the vital nutrition you need to stay healthy.  However, since the nutrient rich food travels through the digestive tract, it attracts bacteria.  This bacteria feeds on the nutrient rich stool.  This has a two-pronged effect.  First of all, it compacts the stool leading to constipation and/or diarrhea.  Second of all it leads to bowel toxicity. Sadly, bowel toxicity leads to a host of other health problems including cancer.

Our Approach

Your enzyme levels are a direct result of your digestive health. And while I don’t diagnose or treat any disease (including digestive diseases and autoimmune diseases), I can help support healthy digestion. Additionally I can support healthy inflammation levels as well as healthy immune function.  And of course this, in turn, promotes healthy bowel 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.  And these tests are based on sound medical principles.

Are you concerned about your digestive health?  Or perhaps you’re thinking about your immune health.  Does it affect your job, family or fun? Are you worried about the long term affects?  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.
