Chiropractic Helps Asthma and COPD

Chiropractic Helps Asthma and COPD.  The World Health Organization reports that some of the most common chronic lung problems include asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and pulmonary hypertension.  The last one is basically high blood pressure in the arteries connecting the heart and lungs.

Chiropractic Helps Asthma and COPD.  While these diseases have no real cure, the typical solution involves medication.  In the case of asthma, you also have to avoid “triggers.”  Triggers are basically things in the environment that can cause an asthma attack.  Common triggers include pet dander, dust and pollen.  However, depending on the person, it could be just about anything.  While chiropractic care is no substitute for medicine, research shows it, too can help.

In fact, research from the Journal of Physical Therapy Science confirms that spinal adjustments can help with breathing problems.  Furthermore, this is very recent research published in September of 2016.  In fact, none of the patients in the study sought spinal care for lung problems.  Instead, they sought treatment for neck or low back pain.  Additionally, none of the subjects in the study were taking any medications.

The study concluded that “chiropractic care likely plays a more important role in healthy lung function than most people realize. This information may be helpful to patients who are already experiencing asthma or COPD issues and looking for relief, but it may also work to reduce the likelihood of lung-related diseases in the first place.”

At Redmond Ridge Nutrition & Chiropractic, we take a complete approach to your lung health.  First, we can use either traditional or low-force spinal corrections to support healthy breathing.  On top of that, we can use enzyme nutrition in combination with the right dietary changes to support healthy airways.

Cancer Patients Lack Potassium

Cancer Patients Lack Potassium.  Do you know what the trending mineral supplement is these days?  Well, it’s magnesium.  Meanwhile, others turn to calcium and even chromium for health and wellness.  Sadly, many ignore a mineral deficiency that may lead to cancer.

Cancer Patients Lack Potassium.   Actually, most Americans don’t eat enough potassium.  In a 2012 survey from the Food Surveys Research Group, your body needs about 4700 milligrams of potassium daily.  Unfortunately, the average American gets only about 2640 milligrams per day.  Potassium is a mineral that helps maintain a healthy fluid balance in our body. It also plays an important role in making sure our nerves and muscles work effectively.

The Research Goes WAY Back

In the 1950’s, The natural medicine pioneer, Max Gerson, MD, pioneered regarding cancer and metabolism. As a matter of fact, one of the conditions Gerson focused on was potassium deficiency. Furthermore, Gerson discovered that balanced potassium levels are vital for prevention.

In fact, according to Pub Med, 2015, potassium can help your body support healthy blood pressure levels.  How?  Potassium can help your body counter balance the effects of too much salt in your blood.  Excess salt in the blood is a leading cause of hypertension or high blood pressure.

The Cancer Potassium Connection

While all of that sounds helpful and interesting, how can low potassium lead to cancer?  The answer lies within your cells.  In fact, your cells use potassium to make energy, or ATP.  ATP is basically energy at the cell level.  However, cancer cells do not make ATP.  As a result, if you lack potassium, your normal cells cannot thrive.  On the flip side, cancer cells can thrive.  So, if cancer patients lack potassium, the problem only gets worse.

When stress affects the cells of your body, several things happen.  First, the cell loses potassium. Second, the cell accepts more sodium. Third, the cell swells with too much water.  This is called cellular edema. The result of this is that normal cells lose the ability to generate energy (ATP) in a healthy way. Afterwards, the cells are vulnerable to mutation; AKA cancer.

Signs of Potassium Deficiency

While every case is unique, and there are multiple conditions that can lead to the following symptoms, here are some signs of potassium deficiency.  However, before I list them, I need to make one thing clear.  If you suffer from lack of potassium, you there could be two problems.  First, you may not be getting enough, or second, your body isn’t absorbing or using it properly.  Here are some signs of a potassium problem.  These signs include: fatigue and weakness, constipation, muscle cramps, or an irregular heartbeat.  Since other serious diseases can also cause these symptoms, it’s crucial to see a qualified healthcare provider, rather than try to self-diagnose the problem.

Potassium Needs Enzymes

Potassium is known as an alkaline metal or mineral.  In order for your body to use these minerals properly, it requires enzymes.  Sadly, by age 40, your body can’t make enzymes like it used to.  In fact, your body makes 70% less enzymes by age 40.  As a result, adding potassium to your diet may not be enough.  This is why I focus on enzyme nutrition.  While you can get the proper nutrients in your diet, the right enzyme supplements help your body use those vital nutrients properly to support a happy and healthy lifestyle.

Green Tea, A Healthy Alternative to Coffee

Green Tea, A Healthy Alternative to Coffee.  Let’s face it, America is addicted to coffee.  However, did you know that the national drink of the U.S. was once tea?  Unfortunately, coffee can have a negative impact on your health…

Green Tea, A Healthy Alternative to Coffee.  However, did you know that according to multiple studies that span decades, experts have linked coffee to many serious illnesses?  Sadly, these problems include type 2 diabetes, cancer, high blood pressure, stroke, and chronic inflammation.  Additionally, chronic inflammation can lead to vascular problems, asthma, osteoporosis, arthritis, auto immune diseases, chronic pain, chronic fatigue, depression, & anxiety.  However, it also causes infertility, insomnia, digestive problems, Alzheimer’s, dementia, and many more!

Before I continue, let me tell you a little secret about coffee.  Did you know that our national drink wasn’t coffee?  In fact, do you know what it was?  Well, our national drink was actually tea.  Coffee didn’t take over until the early 1900’s.  At that time, companies hired social psychologists to create tricky marketing campaigns.  Fortunately, the law currently prohibits this practice.  However, at that time, a small coffee company came up with a very effective ad slogan.  In fact, a group of social psychologists came up with the slogan.  Can you guess the slogan?  It was “good to the last drop.”

Switch to Tea

Now, back to tea.  While green tea does contain caffeine, it also has many benefits.  These benefits include antioxidants which help your body keep cancer at bay.  Other key ingredients include quercetin, which helps your body avoid allergies.  Conversely, green tea helps alkalize your body.  This helps your body support healthy bone density.  Additionally, an alkaline body ph also helps you keep cancer at bay.  On top of that, green tea also helps your body reduce inflammation, not increase it.  So, do you remember all of those problems I mentioned above?  Green tea can help your body prevent these issues.  Conversely, coffee adds fuel to the fire.  That is, coffee contributes to the problem.

How we Help

In fact, when I work with my nutrition patients, one of my biggest tasks involves coffee elimination.  The good news is that many coffee shops also sell high quality tea.  In fact, one popular national chain based in Seattle uses a very high quality matcha.  So, if you’re going out to the coffee shop with your friends, you have healthy alternatives available.

At Redmond Ridge Nutrition & Chiropractic, we help your body work properly to reduce the likelihood of chronic inflammation, which leads to chronic disease.  We accomplish this using the right enzyme supplements, and dietary changes designed to teach you how to eat to your personal genetic strengths.  Of course, we only make recommendations after thorough scientific testing based on sound medical principals.

Chiropractic Helps Weight Loss

Chiropractic helps weight loss.  In a world of gimmick diets, and supplements that come with false hopes and promises, Americans are desperate to lose weight.  While many seek weight loss to improve appearance and self-esteem, many of our nation’s top killers start with obesity.  In fact, these chronic diseases include diabetes, heart disease, heart failure, high blood pressure, and many more.

Chiropractic Helps Weight Loss.  In fact, new studies show that chiropractic helps weight loss.  Surprised?  In order to explain why, I’ll need to take you on a little journey.  Do you know what part of your brain is responsible for weight loss?  Remember that your brain has to parts.  First is the conscious part, where you think about things, and act based on those thoughts.  Second, however, is the autonomic nervous system.  This is the part of your brain that runs your body in the background.  In fact, it constantly makes adjustments in reaction to changes both in our bodies and in the outside world.  In fact, it’s called the Autonomic Nervous System, or ANS.

Your “Automatic” Brain

However, the ANS has two parts.  Furthermore, these parts work opposite each other.  The first is our fight or flight system.  In fact, it’s called the Sympathetic Nervous System or SNS.  Your brain turns this system up when you are more active.  In fact, it increases blood flow to the limbs & muscles, and releases chemicals into our blood that give us more energy.  While it was designed for emergencies, we also use it to burn calories when we exercise.  Additionally, the SNS also improves our metabolism.

Conversely, the other part is the calming part.  Actually, it’s called the Parasympathetic Nervous System, or PNS.  The PNS works opposite the fight or flight system.  This system “mellows” us out and relaxes us.  How does it work?  Well, it diverts energy away from our limbs and muscles and into things like digestion and elimination.  When the SNS is revved up, the PNS is automatically turned down and vis. versa.

As a result, to lose weight, our fight or flight system needs to work properly.  According to Chiropractic Journal, chiropractic care helps your fight or flight system work properly.  Additionally, research from Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism shows that improved  SNS function helps you lose weight.

A Unique Combination of Nutrition, Chiropractic, & Exercise

In fact, this is precisely our focus at Redmond Ridge Nutrition.  We use the right dietary changes in combination with enzyme supplements designed to support health fat breakdown and body metabolism.   Of course, we also help your ANS work properly through specific spinal corrections.  These adjustments are both safe and precise.  However, we also can use either traditional or low-force techniques depending on the patient.  Since every case is unique, we only make recommendations after a thorough examination and nutritional testing.  Furthermore, our testing is based on sound medical principles.  Once we make those dietary changes, we stand behind you as your coach teaching you how to eat to your own genetic strengths.  If you like, we can use our 30 years of fitness instruction to help you develop a safe and effective exercise program.

Do you suffer from obesity?  Have you tried everything?  Are you concerned about the long-term health consequences?  If so, please don’t wait. Give us a call at 425-868-0120 and set up a consultation or contact us on the web. I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life. Then we can schedule a thorough examination.  At that time, I’ll order or examine any images and perform a thorough examination so we can discover the cause of your suffering.  After that we can either put the best plan in place or provide you with the right referral.

Starvation Diets Cause Weight Gain

Starvation Diets Cause Weight Gain.  Because obesity is already a nation-wide epidemic, many turn to diet programs that involve starvation diets.  Sadly, in the long term, these programs cause weight gain over the long haul.  In this article, I’ll explain why.

Check out our radio show – Mondays 9-10 AM

AM 1150 KKNW, 1150kknw.com, or FM 98.9 HD band 3,

or on a radio app from your smart device

Starvation diets don’t work.  According to the CDC, over 1/3 of all Americans are obese.  Sadly, obesity is the number one cause of diabetes, heart disease, heart failure, high blood pressure, and many of our nation’s top killers.  To make matters worse, if current trends continue, over 1/2 of all Americans will suffer from obesity by 2030.  As a result, many American turn to supplements and extreme diet programs in hopes of looking better and feeling younger.  Sadly, many of these diets actually make the situation worse over the long haul.

To make matters worse, many of these starvation diets are multi-level networking products.  Their aim is to get you under their “tier” so they hopefully make a percentage of everything you buy.  Furthermore, many will eventually try to get you to promote these products to others.  Hence, if you sign people up under your “tier” they also profit.  Even more worrisome, is that many of these people are selling you diets and supplements have not training in nutrition or any type of health care.

How These Diets Work

So how do these programs work anyway?  Most of these programs put you on a 500 to 1500 calorie diet.  Then, to keep your energy up, they use shakes and supplements loaded with unhealthy energy boosters.  In fact, these boosters include guarna, caffeine and even ma huang.  Unfortunately, all of these can cause serious health problems if used improperly.  In fact, all of them cause energy crashes once they wear off. Even others claim to give you supplements or shakes that “curb your hunger”.  Yet others claim to include supplements that “reset your metabolism.”  Sadly, there is no research to back any of this up.

Furthermore, if you read the fine print of most of these diets, they read that 75-95% of the population gains the weight back.  Actually, the percentage varies based on the product.  Now let’s delve into why.  When you starve yourself, you force your body to slow down it’s metabolism.  While we’re on the subject, what exactly is this buzz-word everyone throws around?  Think of metabolism like the speedometer in your car.  However, your metabolism is the speed at which your body burns calories.  Of course, the more calories you burn, the more fat you break down.  So, if these diets slow your metabolism, you will gain weight once you’re off them.

Short-Term Results

In fact, that’s why starvation diets work in the short-term.  While your metabolism is slowing down, you’re still not getting enough energy from your food.  As a result, your body breaks down fat.  However, in many of these diets, burning fat isn’t enough.  So, what does your body do?  Well, it does the same thing it would do if you were stranded in the jungle for months without food.  Your body breaks down muscle for energy.  That’s right.  When you go on a starvation diet ask the person who sold it to you how much muscle mass you’ll lose.

Weight loss is about much more than calorie intake.  While you do need to count calories, you shouldn’t starve yourself.  However, you also need to pay attention to where those calories come from.  The right balance of proteins, fats and complex carbs in combination with the right exercise program can increase your metabolism causing your body to burn fat even at rest.

An Effective, Lasting Solution

In fact, this is precisely our focus at Redmond Ridge Nutrition.  We use the right dietary changes in combination with enzyme supplements designed to support health fat breakdown and body metabolism.   Since every case is unique, we only make recommendations after testing.  Furthermore, our testing is based on sound medical principles.  Once we make those dietary changes, we stand behind you as your coach teaching you how to eat to your own genetic strengths.  If you like, we can use our 30 years of fitness instruction to help you develop a safe and effective exercise program.
