Enzymes work with Medicine.  Let’s say you’re riding your bike.  All of a sudden, you hit a deep pot hole you didn’t notice.  The bike comes crashing down and you break your arm.  Now what?  Is it time to go buy some supplements?  Maybe you should get your spine adjusted.  Of course, the obvious answer is the right one.  Call 911 and get to the E.R.

Remember that a broken bone is a medical emergency requiring medical intervention.  When you get to the hospital, doctors will x-ray your arm and give you pain medicine for pain and swelling.  If appropriate they will also set the bone.  Once the emergency care is complete, these doctors will refer you to an orthopedist who will determine what type of care is necessary.  Do you need a cast, pins and screws, or does your situation require surgery?  He or she will then perform the necessary procedure.

The “Side Effects”

Now you’re walking around with your arm in a sling.  You’re also taking pain medications and anti inflammatory meds.  This is where natural care can work together with your medical treatment.  In fact, here’s how…

First the right diet and enzyme supplements can help your body heal the broken bones properly.  Additionally, other enzyme supplements can help your body properly reduce inflammation.  Lastly, while they are necessary, the medicine you took put stress on your liver, kidneys, and/or digestive system.  The right enzyme supplements can help your body cleanse itself from these harmful toxins.

We’re Part of the Team

At Redmond Ridge Nutrition, we will work along side your medical team to help you restore your health safely, naturally and effectively.  In fact, we may even use diagnostic imaging or lab tests ordered by your medical team.  In fact, we can even call them on the phone or send correspondence if we need to coordinate your care.

Would you like to know how we can support a healthy healing process in your body?  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.

The Root Cause of Disease

The Root Cause of Disease.  I’ll never forget the day I was hosting a workshop on heart health.  As you can imagine, this covers a host of topics.  During the workshop, I made it clear that I don’t treat any heart conditions.  On the other hand, my job is to support healthy heart function by finding the source of stress that caused the problem to begin with.  In fact, I use this approach when helping all of my patients.  As soon as I said that, a hand raised with the question, “what enzymes do you take for high blood pressure.”  Sadly, it seems my statement fell on deaf ears.

The Root Cause of Disease.  Too often, health care providers treat the condition, or the symptom.  Sadly, this even includes natural health care providers.  As a result, too many people are taking “this for that”.  While that sounds reasonable, which is preferable, treating the symptom or the cause?

Before I continue, I need to clarify that I do not treat any diseases or condition.  And actually, I consider this an advantage.  In fact, let’s use high blood pressure as an example.  The common medical solution is water pills and blood thinners.  However, these medications merely manage the condition.

Continuing with our example, can you think of several things that could lead to high blood pressure?  Let’s brain-storm together.  For starters, there’s diet.  Eating too much salt, sugar and even other spices lead to high blood pressure.  But what about emotional stress?  Worrying about that deal, or that promotion, or not getting laid off during a “reorg” can all lead to high blood pressure.  In fact, here’s an odd one, what about physical stress.  How can physical stress cause high blood pressure?  Physical stress causes pain and/or inflammation.  Sadly, either can lead to high blood pressure.

Did You Catch My Hint?

I hinted at something here.  Did you pick up on it?  All three causes are forms of stress. In fact, stress is the root cause of every disease.  In fact, as I stated earlier, stress has three forms.  These forms are emotional, nutritional and physical.  Addressing the stress, and helping the stressed part of your body work properly can help you avoid many chronic diseases.  This includes high blood pressure.  After all, stress is the root cause of disease.

Finding the Source of Stress

Regardless of the source of stress, Redmond Ridge Nutrition and Chiropractic can help identify the sources of stress in your body.  We accomplish this through testing methods that are scientific in nature, and based on sound medical principles.  Then we carefully select the right combination treatments.  These treatments may include enzyme nutrition, rehabilitative exercises, massage therapy and/or traditional or low force chiropractic care.  In fact, we may even help you with emotional stress with affirmations or a referral to a qualified provider.

Once again, I need to clarify that none of these treatments diagnose or treat disease.  Instead, we are dedicated to finding the source(s) of stress with pinpoint accuracy and helping those parts work properly with the right support.

Stress, The Root Cause of Disease

Have you visited doctor after doctor in search of answers to your suffering?  Are you sick and tired of the revolving door of medical treatment?  Perhaps you’re tired of being processed through the health care system like an object on a conveyor belt.  If so, don’t wait.  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. Then 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 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?

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, you can contact us one of several ways to set up a consultation.

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.
