DAWC 043 Scientific Nutrition Testing

Scientific Nutrition Testing

Scientific Nutrition Testing: In this breakthrough episode, Dr. Andy delves into several case studies.  These case studies clearly illustrate the difference between the “pop and pray” method of supplementation versus using scientific analysis.  In fact, there were several cases where Dr. Andy had to turn patients away because they didn’t completely understand this concept.

In fact, did you know that your actual problem may lie “upstream” from where your symptoms or pain exist?

While I don’t diagnose or treat any disease (including chronic diseases), I can help your body work the way it’s supposed to work in a healthy way.  In fact, I provide this support with a specific plan. And this plan usually includes custom dietary changes and the correct enzyme supplements, home exercises, chiropractic treatment, and positive thinking. Of course I only make recommendations after scientific testing based on sound medical principles.

Are you concerned about digestive health? 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, give us a call and set up a consultation. 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.

About Dr. Andy

After many years of clinical practice, Dr. Marrone has forged a remarkable career as a practitioner, educator and lecturer. His extensive knowledge of enzyme nutrition has made him a much sought after practitioner. Do you suffer from health problems that nobody seems to have the answer to?  Are you sick and tired of the revolving door approach of modern medicine?  Give Dr. Marrone a call to set up a consultation.

Who are the Nutrition Experts?

Nutrition Experts – It never fails.  I’m consulting with someone in my office about enzyme nutrition.  I tell the basics on how enzymes work, and why they are vital to nutrition and health.  Everything I tell them is medical fact.  In fact, you can find the information in any physiology textbook.  Then I hear the almighty words “Let me run this by my medical doctor…”

Nutrition Experts – Ah yes, the almighty ever known M.D.  Before I delve into the differences between chiropractic and medical education, I need to be clear.  Medical doctors are experts in their field.  In fact they are well educated in that field.  I want to be sure I don’t take anything away from that.  However, they are NOT experts in nutrition.

Before I get into that, let me compare the chiropractic course work to that of the medical field.  Did you know we use the same textbooks?  We both study the same anatomy text book, the same physiology textbook, the same biochemistry textbook, and the same disease text book.    Where our education differs, however is in several areas.  First, medical doctors spend more time studying disease and traumatic injuries.  That makes sense as the bulk of their care is crisis care.

Chiropractors, however, spend way more time studying spinal movement, neurology, radiology and nutrition.  In fact the average medical doctor receives about 19.6 hours of nutrition.  I, on the other hand have studied over 200 post graduate hours on nutrition.  This information comes from American Medical Student Association), in collaboration with The Pew Charitable Trusts.  Again, M.D.’s are experts in their field, and no one is taking that away from them.  However, when it comes to nutrition, who is the nutrition experts?

Wellness versus Disease Treatment

Wellness versus Disease Treatment:  I recently had someone make call into my radio show.  She seemed frustrated for me that I can’t claim to treat disease.  Her exact words were “it must be frustrating that you can say you treat Osteoporosis.”

Wellness versus Disease Treatment: If you listen, or read my blog, you know I am careful about stating I don’t treat disease.  While one reason I’m clear about this is to remain FDA-Compliant, there is another reason.  In fact, what if I told you I’m glad that I don’t make that claim?  Why don’t I give you the same perfect example in just a bit?

So I was broadcasting my show on Bone Health & Osteoporosis.  In the middle of the show, a woman calls in.  She seemed frustrated, stating that she appreciated the information I provided, but was very angry at the FDA.  She was frustrated that natural health care providers like me could not claim to treat diseases like osteoporosis.  I told her I was glad I didn’t treat disease.  In fact, I’ll give you the same explanation I gave her.  Now don’t get me wrong, treating disease DOES HAVE ITS PLACE, and is a NECESSARY SERVICE.

About a year ago a patient came into my office asking me for a natural solution for osteoporosis.  We scheduled a consult.  During the consult I explained that I don’t treat diseases, including osteoporosis, but I could support healthy bone density.  I also explained the problems with calcium supplements, and that problems with bone density are typically a protein problem.  I performed Bio-Impedance analysis, and the patient scheduled testing.  We implemented a plan including a diet high in protein in calcium, along with specific enzymes that promote protein and calcium absorption, digestion, and use in the body.

The Results

A few months later, the patient reported that her latest bone density test was normal.  They also reported that their premenstrual cramps were almost nonexistent.  Additionally, they had more muscle mass and less body fat.  To confirm this, we did another Bio Impedance analysis.  We were both quite happy with the results.  So let’s compare this to treating Osteoporosis.  Treating Osteoporosis would have merely improved the patient’s bone density.  However, finding the source of stress in the body, and addressing that source of stress had a much broader and profound effect.  Which would you prefer?

Are you concerned about your health?  Does your ailment affect your work, family life or active lifestyle?  Would you like to support a healthy body safely, naturally and effectively?  Would you like to avoid drugs or surgery?  If so, give us a call and set up a consultation.  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.

inflammation foods
Inflammation foods cause weight gain and many other health problems

Inflammation foods.  Because of the Standard American Diet (SAD), chronic inflammation is a growing problem in the U.S.  Why?  Because chronic inflammation can lead to a host of serious diseases if left alone.  But the good news is that many Americans just like you are becoming more and more health conscious.  As a result, you are also much more aware of the problems caused by inflammation.  So here is a list of thirteen foods you should avoid.

Inflammation Foods:

1. Vegetable oils: Vegetable oils that contain omega 6 fatty acids are notorious for inflammation.  Increasing your intake of omega 3 fatty acids help balance your ratio between 3’s and 6’s and support low inflammation levels.  Of course, be sure to see my prior post on how to do this PROPERLY.  (Nutrients. 2016 Mar; 8(3): 128.)

2. Dairy products:In fact many people are unaware that milk and other dairy products trigger inflammation.  It is also important to note that milk is hidden in many foods including bread, cereal, cookies and so on. Not to mention  60 percent of Americans can’t digest milk (which is genetically normal, by the way).

3. Sugar: Did you know there is tons of research out there linking sugar to inflammation, obesity and chronic diseases? Avoid table sugar and foods with added sugar.  And by the way, this includes almost all processed foods. (Mediators Inflamm. 2010; 2010: 289645)

4. Processed meat: And by the way, processed meat can also cause an increased risk of cancer. (World Health Organization)

5. Refined flour: Sadly, refined grains are extremely low in nutrients.  Not only that, but there is a strong link between them and cancer, weight gain, and chronic diseases.

6. Alcohol: It comes as no surprise that Long-term alcohol intake can cause chronic inflammation and increase risk of cancer.

7. Trans fats: Of course the media has “saturated” the market with information on trans fats.  In fact you commonly find these harmful fats in  deep fried foods, especially and fast foods. Strong research shows they are strong inflammatory agents.

More Inflammation Foods…

8. Additives: Common additives like aspartame are very strong inflammatory foods. Sodas, diet sodas, and energy drinks contain high amounts of additives.

9. Artificial sweeteners: Research shows that artificial sweeteners increase inflammation, and the risk of type 2 diabetes.  See my previous article on this.

10. Gluten: Gluten ruins gut health and promotes inflammation. Avoid foods that contain wheat.  But be extremely careful.  Many gluten free foods are high in simple carbs.  These also contribute to inflammation and type 2 diabetes.

11. Agave: While many turn to agave as a natural non sugar alternative.  But unfortunately this is a mistake.  In fact, Agave is 90 percent sugar. It has been proven to cause inflammation, fast aging, and chronic diseases.  Unfortunately it has been touted as a natural sugar alternative.  But sadly, it is pretty much just sugar itself.

12. Peanuts: Peanuts cause a strong inflammatory response in the body.  They also contain aflatoxin.  Do you know what that is?  In fact, researchers use aflatoxin to cause cancer in laboratory animals.

13. Iodized salt: In fact unrefined salt is a better choice because it contains lots of minerals. Iodized salt has been proven to cause inflammation. But make sure you get plenty of iodine from foods like seaweed.

learn about Turmeric and Inflammation

Turmeric and Inflammation.  As I’ve stated in the past, supplements and natural wellness are very popular in the U.S. today.  In fact leading experts expect profits from supplement sales to double between 2012 and 2020.  And like it or not, this really is a double edged sword.  On one hand it gives you free access to an amazing way to support health and wellness.  However, many corporations profit by selling products with false claims.  Today, we will explore a popular supplement many tout for inflammation.  And of course I’ll cover the latest research behind it.

Did you know that many Americans turn to turmeric as the go to supplement for inflammation?  In fact many people use it for both chronic inflammation and for swelling from injuries.  However, according to the NCCI*, extensive research shows turmeric doesn’t help in either case.  What’s more, this research looked at over 579 strong nation-wide studies.  These studies “cannot support claims that turmeric helps to reduce inflammation.”  So where exactly did this information come from?  You can find this research in PubMed and was published in 2013.  Of course it’s also important to realize that chronic inflammation can lead to many serious illnesses.  Which ones?  These ailments include type 2 diabetes, cancer, digestive problems and arthritis.

Support Healthy Inflammation Levels

So just what is the key to supporting healthy inflammation levels?  First of all, It’s important to realize that inflammation is a necessary part of our health.  As a matter of fact it is crucial in the early stages of wound healing.  On the other hand, chronic inflammation is a problem that plagues most Americans.  Why?  For starters, you can thank the all mighty SAD.  But just what is SAD?  It stands for the Standard American Diet, which is rich in simple carbs and the wrong kinds of fibers.  “SADly” (pun intended) this contributes to the very problem.  Another problem is that many Americans are deficient in the vital enzymes required to control and counter the inflammation process.  Through a combination of dietary changes, and the proper enzyme supplements we can support a healthy inflammatory response.

We Can Help

Low Cholesterol Shortens Life
Did You Know Low Cholesterol Shortens Life?

Low Cholesterol Shortens Life.  Over the past many years, there have been a number of studies proving the cholesterol myth is just that.  It is just a myth.  In fact these studies show there is no link between cholesterol and heart disease.  Among these studies are the Framingham Study as well as the Honolulu Study.  And, as I’ve previously stated, the Aboriginals have a high instance of heart disease and very low cholesterol levels while Switzerland has a low incidence of heart disease and relatively high cholesterol levels.  However, if you actually dive into the data behind the Honolulu study, you’ll find some startling figures.  Surprisingly, these statistics indicate that lower cholesterol may actually shorten your life span.

What’s most unfortunate is that the study concludes that lowering cholesterol does not affect your risk of heart disease.  While that is a great finding, one needs to look at the underlying data in the study to get to the real truth.  Surprisingly, if you look at that actual data, you find the conclusion is being somewhat politically correct.  Because the data actually shows a HIGHER MORTALITY RATE for subjects who had lower cholesterol levels.  As a matter of fact this includes those with lower LDL levels, which is the “BAD” cholesterol.  In fact several studies from medscape.com show that people who have lower LDL (“Bad Cholesterol”) levels had an increased risk of cancer.
