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. 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.

Insomnia? Try improving gut health.

Insomnia? Try improving gut health.  Did you know that between 50 and 70 million Americans like you suffered from sleep problems in 2017?  In fact, this information comes from the CDC.  However, hope exists.  Cutting edge research shows that improving your gut health can improve your sleep.

Insomnia? Try improving gut health.  Research from a top neuroscience journal published in January of 2017 showed that if you improve your gut health, you can improve your sleep.  This study was so ground-breaking that “Frontiers in Behavior Neuroscience” published the article.

Less Sleep, Shorter Life

For starters did you know that insomnia taxes your immune system the exact same way an infection does?  So, if you compromise your immune system through sleep deprivation, what happens when you catch a cold?   You’ve basically overwhelmed your immune system.  As a result, your immune system cannot keep up with demand.  However, there are many other long-term effects to sleep deprivation, including a shorter life span.  In fact, studies exist to back this up.

So just what are all of the complications of staying up too late?   For starters, did you know that driving while tired is about the same as driving with a 0.10 blood alcohol level?  That’s right, driving while tired is the same as driving drunk.  As I stated earlier some 50-70 million Americans just like you suffer from insomnia.

While the study focused on gut friendly foods and probiotics, a word of caution is important. After all, your body should support a healthy population all by itself.  As a result, constantly downing probiotics addresses the symptom, and not the cause.  It’s important to use the right combination of diet and enzyme supplements to create a healthy mucous layer.  Once your gut has a healthy mucous layer, your probiotics will thrive on their own.

Some Dietary Tips

In fact, here is a list of gut-friendly foods: Apples, Asparagus, Banana, Beetroot, Breast milk, Burdock root, Cashews, Chicory root, Couscous, Fennel bulb, Garlic, Grapefruit, Green peas, Jerusalem artichokes, Jicama, Konjac root, Leeks, Nectarines, Onion, Persimmon, Pistachios, Pomegranate, Savoy cabbage, Seaweed, Shallots, Snow peas, Tamarillo

Please remember to ferment your grains and beans and soak all nuts until they sprout.

Conversely, here is a list of things that can compromise gut health: Antibiotics, Conventionally raised meats, Processed foods, Excessive sugars, Agricultural chemicals, Antibacterial soap.

However, if this is a long-term problem, your healthy mucous layer was replaced by unhealthy biofilm.  Sadly, we have to get rid of the bio film first.

Our Unique Approach

At Redmond Ridge Nutrition, we take a comprehensive approach to gut health.  If biofilm is present, we use the right enzymes to break it down first.  Then the right combination of enzymes can create healthy mucous layers in the stomach, small intestines and large intestines.  Once each layer is healthy, then we can use the right prebiotics and probiotics to repopulate.  Once we repopulate, there is no need to continue taking them.

Do you have trouble falling or staying asleep?  Perhaps you’re concerned about a loved one.  Does it affect school, work, family or play?  If so, don’t wait.  Let us help you safely, effectively, and naturally without drugs or surgery. 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. If you do, I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life.  Together, we can determine if you are a good candidate for care. If you’re not, I’ll make every effort to provide the proper referral.

DAWC 055 Healthy Germs and Worms –

Healthy Germs and Worms: Learn about the many ways that helpful germs keep you healthy, happy and well.  Discover the dangers of antibacterial soaps and certain medications.  In fact, fearing germs will also affect your health.   While medications are necessary at time, some kill off the healthy germ population in and on your body.  Learn ways to promote healthy germ growth on and in your body.  In fact, you will also discover what germs the medical community calls infections.  However, these germs actually should live inside your body.  In fact, problems only arise if their population grows too big, or if they migrate to the wrong location.

Additionally, did you know that our ancestors also had healthy “parasites” in their GI tract.  Scientists state that these “parasites” actually coexisted with us in harmony.  This harmonious relationship actually helped our immune, digestive and genetic health.  In fact, some people are trying to replicate this today.  However, you can learn about the controversy with this approach.

Lastly, did you know that some of the helpful germs in our acceptors’ guts are now extinct?  Sadly, we can never populate our bodies with some of these helpful life forms.  However, you can learn what foods to eat to keep your existing germ population healthy and diverse for your health and wellness.

Remember that your body needs these helpful germs for many crucial aspects of health. In fact, they can even help your body keep allergies and inflammation at bay. Lastly, it’s important to feed those probiotics with the right kinds of fiber from fresh fruits and vegetables. We actually have a probiotic restoration system that helps your body repopulate a healthy and diverse population everywhere they should live; not just in the gut.

Digestion Chronic Pain

Digestion Chronic Pain. According to the National Institute of Health, about 5 million Americans suffer from chronic pain and Fibromyalgia each year.  In addition, many health care providers use these terms as a catch when a condition doesn’t fit the symptoms.  Sadly, no one really knows why or what causes it.  However, new research shows a strong link between digestive health and chronic pain.

The Medical Approach of Drugs

Digestion Chronic Pain.  And while there is medication out there, the most recent research proves it doesn’t work at all.   Furthermore, in 2013 the National Pain Foundation conducted a study on fibromyalgia medication.  According to this break through research, over two-thirds of fibromyalgia patients said their medication didn’t work at all.  And sadly, this medication is only for symptoms relief.  To make matters worse, the pain is often comes with other problems.  Many sufferers of chronic pain also suffer from fatigue, joint pain, poor digestion, sleeplessness, depression, and “brain fog” or the inability to concentrate or focus.

Despite this, in 2012, researchers from Johns Hopkins University estimated the cost of chronic pain as $635 billion annually.  That’s about as much as the combined cost of cancer, heart disease and diabetes. In Europe, estimates suggest that chronic pain conditions subtract 3% right off the top of their gross domestic product.

One of the most interesting aspects of chronic pain is its link to digestion. In fact, researchers are accumulating loads of evidence.  This new evidence suggests that certain forms of pain are the result of signals emitted by your gut when it’s not healthy.  In Cambridge, Emeran Mayer, is presenting results that suggest digestive influence. Emeran is from the University of California Los Angeles.

There is strong evidence showing the communication between the gut and your body is two way.  In fact, researchers refer to it as the gut brain axis, or the enteric nervous system. (see my prior articles). The autonomic nervous system, which regulates the activity your gut and other organs, sends out signals.  These signals affect your digestion, altering its activity. Then your gut talks back to your body in return.  When the gut is stressed, it affects this communication.  This, in turn, can lead to chronic pain.

The Key to Gut Health…

What most people fail to realize is that your digestive health can be the key to your chronic pain.  If your gut isn’t working properly, it can lead to a condition called Leaky Gut Syndrome.  This in turn can lead to a whole host of symptoms including fatigue, joint pain, poor digestion, sleeplessness, depression, and “brain fog” or the inability to concentrate or focus.  When these symptoms last long enough, the most common medical diagnosis is fibromyalgia.   And while I don’t diagnose or treat any disease (including fibromyalgia), I can help support healthy digestion.  And of course this, in turn, prevents leaky gut.

Are you concerned about digestive health? Do you suffer from chronic pain, muscle discomfort, fatigue, depression and brain fog? 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.

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.
