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, 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.

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.

Are you concerned about your body mass or overall health?  Would you like to eat to your own genetic strengths?  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.

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.

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, 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.

Enzyme Testing – Addressing the actual stress

Enzyme Testing – Addressing the actual stress: I recently had someone walk into my office.  She attended one of my workshops on muscle health recently.  She immediately asked what enzymes to take for chronic muscle pain…

Enzyme Testing: I really found that odd.  You see at all of my workshops I explain several things quite clearly.  First of all I don’t diagnose or treat any disease.  This, of course, includes chronic muscle pain.  Second, each case is unique.  As a result, I would need to perform tests to find the actual source of stress so I can implement a targeted plan that allows those stressed organs work better.  Otherwise we’re just guessing.  Do you remember what I call “taking this for that”?  It’s called “pop & pray.”  Lastly, it is likely that dietary changes are necessary and if she’s not willing to change her diet I probably can’t help her.

Sadly her response was “well I just want something for muscle pain, so if you won’t sell me anything I’ll just go somewhere else.”  I pointed to the GNC across the street and sincerely wished her the best.  However, I hope she realizes that anyone giving her supplements for muscle pain is violating FDA laws.

An “Instant” World

For better or worse, we live in an instant world.  Between social media, on demand entertainment on our mobile devices, and many other luxuries, our society wants things right away.  But when we’re talking about true wellness there are several key points to remember.

First of all, I don’t diagnose and treat disease.  I find stress in particular parts of the body and use a specific combination of enzyme supplements and dietary changes to help those parts work properly.  We accomplish this through scientific enzyme testing based on sound medical principles. Second, that stress may lie way upstream from where your symptoms are.  Why would I want to treat “muscle pain” when the muscle pain arose from the fact that your body has trouble using protein.  Protein carries calcium, and muscles need calcium to work properly.  Third, why would I guess at what supplements you should take rather than run actual proven tests?

Why we’re Different

Of course this is why I require a consultation before I’ll accept a patient.  I need to make sure my services are appropriate for that person.  I also need to know what tests I need to perform to get the right information.  It’s also important to get an overall picture of your nutritional health before we start, which is where BIO impedance analysis comes in.  It will reveal your body composition and overall cellular health.

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.

Immune System Health and Enzymes

Immune System Health and Enzymes: Did you know your body has a defense system?  In fact, it’s called your immune system.  Its job is to fight off foreign invaders to keep you healthy.  Did know this vital system fights germs and infections all day every day?  Enzymes play a crucial role in keeping your body’s defenses healthy.

Immune System Health: Although we inhale and eat thousands of germs every day, the immune system provides protection.  This vital protection stops these germs from causing diseases. However, from time to time, a germ is able to break through our natural defenses.  When this happens, we wind up with a disease or infection. Once the immune system learns about these germs, it will fight them, and we get over the malady.  In fact, your immune system fights of cancer cells every day.

So just how does our immune system learn about and destroy these germs? There are different cells in our immune system.  Some of these cells identify specific germs.  Meanwhile, others coordinate attacks on these harmful bugs.  Yet others remember how to destroy this type of infection in case we ever encounter it again.

Enzymes are the Key

Now for the magic question how does your immune system do all of this?  Your immune system works through a careful balance of certain enzymes.  Some enzymes help your body make the actual immune system cells.  On the other hand, your immune cells release certain enzymes to break down a germ’s defenses and then desultory them. Yet others help clean up the “mess” or toxins left over from the battle.  As you can see enzymes play a key role to ensure that our body can fight off foreign invaders.

Keeping the immune system in working properly is getting more and more difficult.  The increasing amounts of toxic pollutants in the environment make this especially true.  While I don’t diagnose or treat any disease, I can help your immune system work the way it’s supposed to.  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 your immune system health?  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.
