DAWC064 Protein and Hormones.  Is protein a source of energy?  In fact, how do my cells use energy anyways?   Furthermore, what are the best sources of energy?  How can I avoid sugar cravings?  If you have these questions, listen to this episode of Dr. Andy’s Wellness Corner.

In fact, how does your body use protein anyway?  In fact, how are hormones made?  Additionally, are hormones just for reproduction?  How else does my body use hormones?  Did you know hormones are the oldest form of brain signaling in your body?  As a result, they play a key role in many aspects of your health, and not just reproduction.  In fact, you can learn about what hormones are made of, how your endocrine system works, and why it’s important.

Kidney Stones on the Rise in the U.S.

Kidney Stones on the Rise in the U.S.  According to the Mayo Clinic (02/12/2018), more and more Americans suffer from kidney stones each year.  In fact, doctors performed over 80 million CT scans in the US in 2016 to confirm kidney stones, compared to 2.7 million in 1995.

Kidney Stones.  The study concluded that kidney stones increased more than fourfold among women and more than twofold among men, it found.  In fact, young women between 18 and 39 had the highest increase in cases, jumping from 62 to 252 cases between 1984 and 2012.  Sadly, diet and water intake are the apparent root cause.  In fact, Dr. John Lieske, a professor of medicine at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, was a lead author of the study.   He found that “Too much calcium in the urine is certainly a factor in many of these patients but not all of them, and then there’s other things that come into play related to diet and not drinking enough fluids.”

One has to wonder if all of the calcium supplements are taking their toll on America’s health.  In fact, most calcium deficiencies are actually a protein problem or a problem properly digesting and using protein.  Most kidney stones consist of calcium salts, often calcium oxalate or calcium phosphate. The incidence of both types of stones increased over the past three decades, according to the study. Calcium oxalate accounted for nearly 75% of all the kidney stones.

Hydration and Kidney Stones

Hydration and controlling your salt intake are the biggest steps to prevention.   They may help prevent most types of kidney stones. According to the Mayo Clinic, drinking as much as 2 to 3 quarts of water per day can even help remove small stones.  The water essentially flushes out the urinary system.  However, “Nothing, nothing, trumps fluids,” Clayman said. “If you’re drinking 3 quarts a day and making 2½ quarts of urine a day, that’s the best way you can protect or defend either against getting kidney stones or, if you’ve had them, defend against getting them again.”

Enzymes and Kidney Stones

Do you know what breaks down calcium oxalate, calcium salts and/or calcium phosphate?  The answer is enzymes.  In fact, the type of enzyme your body uses to break down stones are lithotriptic enzymes.  Essentially, litho means stone and tryptic means carving or cutting.  In fact, I carry lithotriptic enzyme supplements to support your body’s ability to break down kidney stones.  Why?  Because kidney stones can be intensely painful.  In fact, kidney stones in men are often called male child birth.  Additionally, if you suffer from low back pain this may also be a sign of kidney stones or other kidney problems.

Are you concerned about your kidney health?  Are you looking for a safe and natural approach to healthy kidney function?  If so, contact us and set up a consultation or call us at 425-868-0120.  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.

Plant Proteins for a leaner you
Plant Proteins or animal proteins?

Plant Proteins are the Latest Trend.  Well, I was perusing some natural research web sites looking for my next topic.  And it seemed that no matter where I went, the latest trend for 2017 seems to be plant protein.  In this article I’ll discuss the pros and cons to this new fad, and how to get the most out of your plant based food.

There are several interesting reasons why plant protein is very popular right now.  I would also like to point out that I’ve touted plant protein since 2008.  In fact the protein I sell in my office is plant based.  However, one reason is that many plants actually have a higher protein concentration than many meats.  Another reason is that you can eat them raw and not have to worry about cooking them in unhealthy oils.

However there are several concerns with regarding plant proteins.  The first one is that meat contains proteins that have a wider variety of amino acids.  Your body requires these acids for many vital functions.  Secondly, your body can use animal proteins faster than plant proteins.  And lastly, your body cannot digest plant material without special enzymes.  And unfortunately, your body can’t make these enzymes.

The Solution

It’s important to get your protein from a VARIETY OF SOURCES.  This ensures your body receives all of the necessary amino acids.   It is also important to make sure you use the right enzymes help your body break down, digest, absorb and use those proteins.   This includes enzymes to help your body digest plant material.  This is especially vital since your body cannot make those enzymes and not all supplements contain them.

Are you concerned about healthy digestion?  Do you want to get the most out of your protein and diet?  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.
