DIET:New Report Will Reveal Which Yogurts Are Healthy, and Which Are Best Avoided Most commercial yogurts are chockfull of sugar, processed fructose (high fructose corn syrup), and/or artificial sweeteners and flavors, which nourishes disease-causing microbes in your gut. A healthy microbiome is not only important for optimal digestion of food and absorption of nutrients, these bacteria also help your body produce vitamins, absorb minerals, and even aid in the elimination of toxins. Recent research suggests yogurt containing Lactobacillus rhamnosus can help protect children and pregnant women against heavy metal poisoning. Your absolute best bet, when it comes to yogurt, is to make your own using a starter culture and raw, organic grass-fed milk. However, there are high-quality USDA 100% organic yogurts on the market.

IN THE NEWS: Answering Emails After Work Is Bad for Your HealthPeople who respond to e-mails during non-work hours report worse sleep, higher levels of burnout, and increased health-related absences from work. Responding immediately to workplace demands, even during off hours interferes with needed recovery time and increases stress-related outcomes. Use your non-work hours to truly unwind and engage in stress-relieving behaviors, like exercise, meditation, and pleasurable hobbies

CONDITION OF THE WEEK: Kidney Stones May Be as Simple as Changing Your Diet Two important factors that I have found with kidney stones are pH and magnesium. So try to maintain a 6.4 pH for saliva and urine. Watch out for too much calcium and not enough magnesium. Magnesium is the key. Magnesium citrate would be very helpful. Dehydration through reduced fluid intake or strenuous exercise without adequate fluid replacement increases the risk of kidney stones. Obstruction to the flow of urine can also lead to stone formation. Divide your body weight in half and consider that ounces. For instance 100 pound person should drink 50 ounces a day of fluids if they have kidney stones. Again if your urine is acid make that lemon water you drink at half your body weight.For acid urine (the most common) two lemons or three limes in a quart of water is your drink of choice, or a gold label Alka-Seltzer which is just a bicarbonate will change your pH quickly. For alkaline urine cranberry juice and high doses of vitamin C as well as eating acid producing foods will be helpful. I recommend taking your pH to the opposite extreme for 24 hours. In most cases as soon as your pH is shifted the stone will dissolve enough to pass without much pain.

FUNNY BONE: Two guys, one old, one young, are pushing their carts around the grocery store when they collide. The old guy says to the young guy, “Sorry about that. I’m looking for my wife, and I guess I wasn’t paying attention to where I was going.” The young guy says, “That’s okay, it’s a coincidence. I’m looking for my wife, too. I can’t find her and I’m getting a little desperate.” The old guy says, “Well, maybe I can help you find her. What does she look like?” “Well, she is 27 years old, tall, with red hair, blue eyes, long legs, and is wearing a tank top with short white shorts. What does your wife look like?” The old guy replies, “It doesn’t matter, let’s look for yours.”

 IN THE NEWS: CHILDREN THAT DRINK RAW MILK HAVE 41% LESS ASTHMA the JOURNAL OF ALLERGY AND CLINICAL IMMUNOLOGY reported on August 29, 2011 that children who drank raw milk had a 41% reduced chance of developing asthma. The same children had a nearly 50% reduction in hayfever as well even when other relevant factors were considered. The large European study reported by REUTERS HEALTH earlier this month included survey results were parents answered detailed questions about their children’s milk consumption. 800 milk samples were collected from the households of those participating in the study. Researchers linked the protective effect of raw milk to the fragile whey protein BSA and alpha-lacto albumin which are destroyed by pasteurization.

WELLNESS: CHOLESTROL FRIEND OR FOE? The advice to avoid cholesterol-rich foods and foods high in saturated fat has likely increased heart disease rates, as these nutrients are important for heart health. Cholesterol is one of the most important molecules in your body; indispensable for the building of cells and for producing stress and sex hormones, as well as vitamin D. Total cholesterol tells you virtually nothing about your heart disease risk. Only small dense LDL particles can potentially be a problem, as they can squeeze through the lining of your arteries. If they oxidize, they can cause damage and inflammation. An inflammatory chemistry is the cause of oxidation, eat anti-inflammatory foods.

CONDITION OF THE WEEK:COLON PROBLEMS due to the nature of our food supply, with highly processed foods loaded with chemicals, it’s no wonder we have so many colon problems in our society. What you might not realize is when the lining of the colon gets damaged things get absorbed into the bloodstream that should normally be eliminated. This can cause allergies, skin problems, toxicity issues, immune disorders, sleep problems and fatigue. Restoring nerve control with chiropractic adjustments and establishing a healthier diet with targeted nutrients to help prepare the lining of the colon can eliminate most colon problems.

FUNNY BONE: Old Lawyer Friend A doctor vacationing on the Riviera met an old lawyer friend and asked him what he was doing there. The lawyer replied, “Remember that lousy real estate I bought? Well, it caught fire, so here I am with the fire insurance proceeds. What are you doing here?” The doctor replied, “Remember that lousy real estate I had in Mississippi? Well, the river overflowed, and here I am with the flood insurance proceeds.” The lawyer looked puzzled. “Gee,” he asked, how did you start the flood?”

IN THE NEWS: DRINKING SODA AGES YOUR IMMUNE CELLS SIMILAR TO THAT OF A DAILY SMOKING HABIT Research published in the American Journal of Public Health claims that drinking soda on a daily basis ages your immune cells to a degree similar to that of a daily smoking habit. To reach this conclusion, the researchers studied the effect of sugary sodas on human telomeres. At the very tip of each arm of the chromosome is where you’ll find the telomere. Your telomeres shorten with time because they cannot replicate completely each time the cell divides. Hence, as you get older, your telomeres get shorter and shorter.They found that people who drank more sugary soda tended to have shorter telomeres. Drinking an 8-ounce daily serving of soda corresponded to 1.9 years of additional aging, and drinking a daily 20-ounce serving was linked to 4.6 more years of aging.

WELLNESS: STOP COLDS, FLU EVEN EBOLA WITH NIXALL For those of you who already have Nixall you have a powerful defense against colds and flu’s. The news on Nixall keeps coming in; see the list of organisms below that Nixall can kill. Simply spray it in your throat when you have signs of a developing infection and it will usually stop it in its tracks. Even your own white blood cells manufacture and release Hypochlorous acid as part of its chemical warfare against microorganisms, they can’t defend themselves against it so there will not be any resistant organisms produced. Don’t forget we carry nasal applicators where you can mix Nixall with saline or water at 50% and it’s still equally effective. If you have a nebulizer you can use Nixall along with key essential oils to help rehabilitate the bronchial tubes and lungs. Nixall is safe enough to spray in your eye if you had conjunctivitis, it can be sprayed in the ear, one common route for viruses to get in the system, and it will not sting when sprayed upon cuts or wounds and it maximizes the healing by eliminating harmful organisms. Testing of Hypochlorous acid (HOCL) has documented Its TOTAL EFFECTIVENESS IN THE ELIMINATION OF Salmonella spp, E.coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Ebola, Tuberculosis (TB), Legionella pneumophila, Anthrax Spores, Staphylococcus, Listeria, HIV, MRSA methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Norovirus, human and animal Influenza (including H5N1 Avian Influenza), and many more.

CONDITION OF THE WEEK: FOOT PAIN can come from many different conditions. Fallen arches, bunions, plantar fasciitis, heel spurs and sciatica to name a few. We are proud to offer custom orthotics (arch supports) to help establish a better balance of the foot. Most of the conditions just named can be helped if not completely corrected with a good pair of custom orthotics. Sometimes adjusting the foot or Kinesio taping can bring great belief. But foot pain could be coming from the back and the chiropractic adjustment could make all the difference in the world.

WELLNESS/PREVENTION: Drink This Daily and Clobber Blood Pressure Researchers in Taiwan discovered a 65% lower risk of high blood pressure for men and women who drank at least 20 ounces of green tea daily for at least a year. Even study participants that drank a minimum of 4 ounces of green tea daily for a year showed a 46% lower risk of high blood pressure. That’s good news if you struggle with blood pressure problems or have a family history. Two studies showed that it’s the catechins in green tea, especially EGCG that act as a natural ACE inhibitor.  ACE is an enzyme that leads to uncontrolled vascular constriction which causes blood pressure to rise

IN THE NEWS:Feds Vow to Publicize Vaccine Injuries Claim Program In 2011, the US Supreme Court ruled that vaccines are “unavoidably unsafe” and that the federal Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) should be the sole remedy for all vaccine injury claims. Most claims are now filed by adults suffering vaccine injury after receiving a flu vaccine. Changes to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) are also being proposed to improve reporting efficiency and dataquality.

CONDITION OF THE WEEK:Sense of well-beingone of the unique effects of chiropractic adjustments is a cascade of chemical reactions that take place deep within the brain and spinal cord. These chemicals are important in our sense of well-being. Besides noticing better energy and better sleep a common response to chiropractic adjustments is patients have an increased sense of well-being. This is part of the benefits of chiropractic in the treatment of patients with addictions.
