Blueberries are a great source of resveratrol and other antioxidants, along with dietary fiber, vitamins C and K and manganese. All things in moderation. That’s what my mom always said, and I think it is sound advice, especially in light of the results of recent survey.

A study published in June in the The_Journal_of_PhysiologDr. Keefe, Keefe Clinic. Tulsa Chiropractor, pain, natural health care.y suggests that consuming too many antioxidants, such as the resveratrol found in red wine, may block some of the health benefits of exercise, specifically reduced blood pressure and cholesterol.

This study was performed on men around 65 years old, so it isn’t clear whether the results would be similar for women or other age groups. The men weren’t drinking wine, but they were taking resveratrol supplements, of 250 milligrams daily.

Let’s put this into context. The amount of resveratrol found in one glass of wine can range from 0.2 milligrams to 2.0 mg, according to the Linus Pauling Institute. While250 mg may seem excessive, it’s not uncommon for resveratrol supplements. to include as much as 900 milligrams of resveratrol. [Top 10 Bad Things That Are Good For You]

So what does this tell us? All things in moderation (thanks, mom). In truth, more research must be done to determine whether there could be ill effects from consuming too much of any one antioxidant, but until then, I suggest going the natural route. If you want to get more resveratrol, consume it in your diet. This way, you’ll get more than just one isolated nutritional component, and you’ll also get fiber that will tell you when it’s time to stop eating.

Here are four foods that are good sources of resveratrol:

Red Grapes: Grapes don’t have to be fermented to contain this antioxidant. It’s actually found in the skin of red grapes along with other nutrients, such as minerals manganese and potassium and vitamins K, C and B1.

Peanut Butter: Peanut butter is great for dressing up apples and celery, but it also contains some resveratrol (up to .13 mg per cup). Peanut butter is a great source of niacin and manganese.

Dark Chocolate: In dark chocolate, resveratrol blends nicely with other antioxidants and also minerals, such as iron, copper and manganese. Who doesn’t like chocolate?

Blueberries: Blueberries don’t have quite as much resveratrol as grapes, but they are also a great source of other antioxidants, dietary fiber, vitamins C and K and manganese.

You may already consume a fair amount of resveratrol. It’s found in foods such as peanuts, pistachios, grapes, red and white wine,blueberries, cranberries, and even cocoa and dark chocolate. The plants from which these foods come make resveratrol to fight fungal infection, ultraviolet radiation, stress, and injury.

 IN THE NEWS:    Natural ways to treat poison ivy, other rashes The “Medicine Hunter” Chris Kilham told FoxNews.com that it’s an allergen found in these plants called urushiol that causes the irritation. Coming into contact with the leaves, especially if they are broken or torn, allows urushiol to seep into your system and cause the uncomfortable breakouts. For those that come into contact with these plants, try the following solutions to help relieve irritation: – Take liquid of witch hazel and apply it to the irritated area. This product can be found at any drugstore and it can help reduce the itching. – A product called Tecnu makes soaps and gels to combat urushiol. After applying it to the affected area, it lifts the allergen out of the cells of your skin, stops the spread, and reduces the irritation. – If you live near the beach, go into the ocean and gently rub sand it into the area and allow the salt water to wash away the urushiol.

WELLNESS: The World’s Population Is Getting Sicker Only 4 percent of the global population was free from health complaints in 2013. One-third, or 2.3 billion people, struggled with more than five health problems each. The proportion of years of healthy life lost due to illnesses is rising at an increasing rate, from 21 percent in 1990 to 31 percent in 2013. Musculoskeletal issues and mental health/substance abuse disorders accounted for close to half of the loss of healthy years of life.  STAYING WELL-DIET, REST, MOVEMENT, STAY POSTIVE AND GET ADJUSTED.

CHIROPRACTIC YOUR BRAIN a recent study of CAT scans of brains of patients with neck problems and one’s without showed a decrease in oxygen in patients with neck problems. Besides subluxations (misalignments) the loss of the normal cervical curve is becoming epidemic due to neck injuries from sports, car accidents and slip and falls. This can compromise blood flow to the brain and thus reduce oxygen. This can be precursors for dementia and Alzheimer’s as well as causing issues like concentration problems, memory and focus. Keep your brain healthy stay regular with chiropractic treatments.

CONDITION OF THE WEEK: This Daily Drink Can Lower Your IQ and Make You Sick A number of towns and districts across the US and Canada have successfully put an end to the fluoridation of communal water supplies, and the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) is tirelessly working to make that a reality for every community, not just in the US but around the world. Fluoride is a toxic drug, the dangers of which far outweigh any benefit it might have to your teeth. In fact, any anti-cavity benefit you may reap from fluoride comes from topical application.It does nothing for your teeth when swallowed, and if you read the fine print on your toothpaste, it clearly tells you not to swallow the toothpaste, and to contact poison control in case of ingestion. Why? Because it’s toxic. Research links fluoridated water consumption to endocrine dysfunction, hypothyroidism, ADHD, and reduced IQ   http://vp.telvue.com/preview?id=T01258&video=236578

DIET: Analysis Confirms Chemicals in Food Are More Hazardous in Combination In the US, more than 10,000 additives are allowed in food, which includes those that are added directly to your food and those in the packaging, which can migrate to your food. Food additives are not automatically required to get premarket approval by the US Food and Drug Administration. Industry-friendly legal loopholes exempt many potentially risky additives from the approval process. Research shows even small amounts of chemicals found in the food supply can amplify each other’s adverse effects when combined, and some processed foods can contain a cocktail of hundreds of chemicals.

IN THE NEWS: Losing sense of smell linked with earlier death People who have problems with their sense of smell may be at increased risk for dying sooner than those who don’t have trouble smelling, a new study suggests. Researchers analyzed information from more than 1,100 adults in New York City whose average age was 80. The participants took a “scratch and sniff” test in which they attempted to identify 40 common odors. People who scored less than 18 points out of 40 were said to have anosmia, or an inability to smell. The study found that the people with scores in the low range (zero to 20 points) were nearly four times more likely to die over a four-year period than those with scores in the high range (31 to 40 points). The study is published today (June 3) in the journal Annals of Neurology.

IN THE NEWS: Honey-based mead may curb antibiotic resistance, say makers Scientists in Sweden are launching their own mead – an alcoholic beverage made from a fermented mix of honey and water – based on old recipes which they say could help in the fight against antibiotic resistance. Lund University researcher Tobias Olofsson said mead had a long track record in bringing positive effects on health. “Mead is an alcoholic drink made with just honey and water and it was regarded as the drink of the gods and you could become immortal or sustain a better health if you drank it. It was drunk by the Vikings for example and other cultures such as the Mayas, the Egyptians and it was a drink that was regarded as a very beneficial drink,” said Olofsson. In previous research published in 2014, Olofsson and Alejandra Vasquez discovered that lactic acid bacteria found in the honey stomach of bees, mixed with honey itself, could cure chronic wounds in horses that had proved resistant to treatment.

WELLNESS: Study links common heartburn drug to increased heart attack risk One in every 14 Americans uses a proton pump inhibitor (PPI)— the most common type of heartburn drug— in any given year, but new research that links them to an increased risk of heart attack has prompted scientists to re-evaluate their safety. Their study also suggests that not only people on blood thinners like clopidogrel, sold as Plavix, may be more vulnerable to heart attack with PPI use, but that anyone on the drug and diagnosed with heartburn— regardless of predisposed cardiovascular risk or other medication use— may be at risk.

CONDITION OF THE WEEK: HEARTBURN what causes heart burn? Certain foods like alcohol, certain drugs like aspirin or other painkillers, hiatal hernias, obesity, nerve pressure in your mid back, toxic colon, smoking and carbonated beverages. Now which of these do antacids correct? Of course none of these plus antacids make you more susceptible to cancer, heart attacks, malnutrition and a toxic and irritable colon. Seek solutions for your health problems because conditions will get worse over time if not corrected. Chiropractic and nutritional therapy with detoxification can make a major difference.

IN THE NEWS: Tattoos can cause serious adverse reactions, study finds Getting inked may have long-term consequences beyond just having to live with your ex-girlfriend’s name on your bicep for decades. About 1 in 10 people who get tattoos experiences problems with the tattoo, including infection, itching, swelling and redness, according to a small study in the June issue of the journal Contact Dermatitis. Many people in the study had complications that lingered for years after the tattoo was inked, the researchers said. Although tattoo artists and parlors are strictly regulated in order to limit infection and disease transmission risk, few people know what is in the tattoo ink itself. “Tattoo inks aren’t very closely regulated in the United States,” Leger told Live Science. “There have been case reports of tattoo removal in certain kinds of ways that can cause anaphylactic reactions,” Leger said, referring to the deadly allergic reaction that involves the closing of the throat and a dangerous drop in blood pressure.

WELLNESS: The Dark Side of Oxygen   Without oxygen, the average person would live for no more than 3 minutes.  It’s the very life force that gives us breath and fuels our limbs.  However, oxygen has a dark side.  When oxygen is processed for fuel in mitochondria—the energy warehouse of the cells—it generates free radicals, or charged oxygen molecules.  These free radicals are inherently dangerous.  They are “imbalanced” with an unpaired electron… and they scavenge your cells looking for an electron to partner up with.  They steal electrons from healthy cells, turning these once healthy cells into more free radicals.  It’s called oxidative stress, and the only way to shield your body from its ravaging effects is to make sure you’ve got a stockpile of antioxidants protecting you. You see, antioxidants turn free radicals into harmless molecules by offering up one of their own electrons.  But, without an abundant supply of antioxidants available to neutralize these free radicals, the scavengers will go on to destroy the cell wall, vessel wall, proteins, fats, and even the DNA of the cell. Antioxidants, like vitamin C, vitamin E, and heart-healthy CoQ10, can protect you.

CONDITION OF THE WEEK: Growing older: NEWSFLASH this is not a condition of ill health this is a condition of time. From what I hear from my patients who might be dealing with arthritis, heart disease, memory loss or other signs of failing health, they are told by their medical doctors it is just due to your age. When did aging equal disease? Dysfunction plus time equals disease but as we’re seeing more and more today what used to be called “old men diseases” are showing up in teenagers and young adults. If you stay healthy and work at maintaining your structure with chiropractic, your chemistry through proper diet and nutritional therapy and exercise balance with rest and relaxation and physical activity you can be well into your 80s and not be fighting a bunch of chronic diseases. Age does not equal disease, dysfunction, untreated injuries, lousy diet, poor stress handling plus time equals disease. We can help you stay well, health is your most important asset, guard it well.

Are vaccines safe and effective?

Dr. Keefe, Keefe Clinic. Tulsa Chiropractor, pain, natural health care.

Over the years patients have asked this question, due to things that they’ve heard on both sides of the question. So let’s look at the First component. Are vaccines safe? What kind of safety testing is done on vaccines? And what is in vaccines?

Dr. Keefe, Keefe Clinic. Tulsa Chiropractor, pain, natural health care.

As far as what is in vaccines, that question might be difficult to fully answer because there is some evidence that the manufacturers are not required to list everything. But here’s what we know for sure: Vaccines contain aluminum, antibiotics, egg protein, formaldehyde, monosodium glutamate and Thimerosal; a mercury-containing preservative.

Dr. Keefe, Keefe Clinic. Tulsa Chiropractor, pain, natural health care.

Varicella (chickenpox), rubella, hepatitis A, shingles and one preparation of rabies vaccine are all made in fetal embryo fibroblast cells. These cells were first obtained from elective termination of two pregnancies in the early 1960s.

Other ingredients include soy and other proteins, artificial colors and sweeteners. A complete list can be found on the CDC’s website under “Vaccine Excipients and Media Summary”.

Dr Keefe, Natural Health care, pain, Tulsa chiropractor,

Some suspect that there are unstated ingredients like peanut oil.

There is adequate scientific evidence that peanut oil (arachis oil) has been used in vaccines since the 1960’s. If current vaccine package inserts do not contain the specific evidence that peanut oil, or peanut meal, is contained within the final vaccine product, it does not mean that peanut antigen is not in the final vaccine product. Vaccine manufacturers use different growth media on which to manufacture the vaccines. They do not report, and I believe are not required to report, the exact ingredients in all of the growth media. Therefore, we may not know whether peanut antigen is used in the vaccine manufacturing process just by reading through the package inserts. Our lack of knowledge about it does not mean it isn’t knowledge waiting to be discovered. And, it may, or may not, have anything to do with an attempt to purposely hide the information that peanut antigen is present in vaccines.”  Lawrence Palevsky MD

Mercury Poisoning

Now if we look at the two main toxic metals that are in most childhood vaccines this becomes a potential health disaster. If you consider that the average person, by age 18 receive 69 doses of 16 different vaccines that’s a lot of mercury and aluminum. When you see the following quotes and statements from those who are supposed to be experts, you have to wonder: “Unfortunately, there is limited experience regarding the toxicity of Thimerosal and the content of mercury it presents, despite the long history of use. Robert Pless, M.D. National Immunization Program, CDC.” —– “In 1999, FDA determined that under the recommended childhood immunization schedule, infants might be exposed to cumulative doses of ethyl mercury that exceed some federal safety guidelines established for ingestion of methylmercury, another form of organic mercury.”

 

roberts-pic

If that’s not disturbing enough here some of the things we know about the effects of aluminum and mercury:

 

Dr Keefe, Keefe Clinic, Natural Health Care, Tulsa Chiropractor, Diet, Pain,

How Aluminum Affects Neurological Health: – Reduces nervous system activity by blocking the action potential of nerve cells – Inhibits enzymes in the brain- Inhibits the uptake of Dopamine, Noradrenaline (Norepinephrine), and Serotonin by nerve cells

Symptoms of aluminum toxicity: flatulence, headaches, colic, dryness of skin and mucous membranes, tendency for colds, burning pain in the head relieved by food, heartburn, aversion to meat also other associated aluminum problems can be Alzheimer’s disease, hyperparathyroidism, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, kidney dysfunction, liver dysfunction, anemia, neuromuscular disorder, hemolysis, leukocytosis, osteomalacia, Parkinson’s disease, and the list goes on.

Mercury is known to cause the following symptoms: mood swings, nervousness, irritability, and other emotional changes, insomnia, headache, abnormal sensations, muscle twitching, tremors, weakness, muscle atrophy, and decreased cognitive functions.

Dr. Keefe, Keefe Clinic. Tulsa Chiropractor, pain, natural health care.

Not only does the government admit that these toxic metals exceed their own guidelines for safety the potential for allergic responses to all the other ingredients is quite troubling when you see the amount of food allergies showing up in the average child.

Now when you’re trying to balance risk and benefit it’s important that you have all the facts. And the fact is today that most childhood diseases are not life-threatening for the vast majority of children. 100 years ago that was a different story. In fact the prevalence of these diseases was substantially higher than they are today. Those who are pro-vaccine like to attribute the vaccines for the lower rate of disease but history doesn’t bear that out. In fact as you look at most childhood diseases like measles both the infection rate and the death rate were already in sharp decline before vaccines.

Dr. Keefe, Keefe Clinic. Tulsa Chiropractor, pain, natural health care.

Medical historians say that better sanitation, cleaner water and better food supply have made more of an overall improvement to public health than any medical intervention has. Most disease graphs will show you these childhood diseases were in sharp decline before the vaccines were introduced. When the vaccines were introduced there was an uptick in the cases of the disease before the decline continued. And so, in my opinion, the benefit is somewhat questionable. If you look at, for instance measles, the risk-benefit is that most kids will have a fever and feel uncomfortable for about a week and then have lifetime immunity. In fact in the past parents chose to engage in what were called “measles parties” where they would intentionally expose their kids to someone with the measles so they could develop a lifetime immunity. As far as the vaccinated population there have been many breakthrough occurrences of the childhood disease in the fully vaccinated population. Also keep in mind the MMR vaccine is one of the most prone to damage of all of vaccines based on the “Vaccine court” records.

Dr. Keefe, Keefe Clinic. Tulsa Chiropractor, pain, natural health care.

The other side of the safety issue is what kind of studies have been done to assure the vaccines are safe? For instance if you are a drug manufacturer and you want to bring a new drug to market, one of the types of testing you need to do is compare the effect of your drug to a placebo. In other words you’ll give a group of people your medication and another group gets a placebo which is classically called a sugar pill. In other words a placebo should be a substance that causes no negative or positive side effects. That way you can clearly see the negative effects the drug might have as well as the positive ones.

Not so with vaccines. To my knowledge vaccine safety studies are the only ones that compare one drug to another drug. In other words, instead of using the placebo they use another vaccine as the placebo. Outrageous; this is one of the best ways to cover some of the side effects of the vaccine. With this dishonest safety study method it’s impossible to properly evaluate a vaccine’s safety.

Dr. Keefe, Keefe Clinic. Tulsa Chiropractor, pain, natural health care.

 

Let’s talk a second about effectiveness. Let’s say you want to bring a drug to market that you say reduces heart attacks. So how would you determine that? Again you would have a population where half get the drug and the other half you give a placebo or give nothing at all and study the effects in both groups. Let’s say the drug group had 20 heart attacks and the placebo group had 80 by the end of the study. This would give you some idea that maybe the medication does prevent heart attacks.

But how do they determine the effectiveness of a vaccine? There are plenty in the population of unvaccinated kids and adults. It would be easy enough to do the above study but that’s not how they determine it, if it’s a vaccine. All they have to do is show antibody production after a vaccine, and they put a lot of stuff in a vaccine including heavy metals to stimulate an immune response. So they don’t have to show any difference between vaccinated populations and unvaccinated population to prove effectiveness. In my opinion this is a farce.

Dr. Keefe, Keefe Clinic. Tulsa Chiropractor, pain, natural health care.

The bottom line is that we have to listen to either the loudest voice or the one that has the authority to punish you if you don’t comply. It’s disturbing how the use of intimidation, fear and outright lies are used to promote vaccines. If you’re a nurse you know what I’m talking about Maybe you’re a believer but still you have to admit that you’ve been trained to misrepresent the possible side effects when you’re talking to patients.

Dr. Keefe, Keefe Clinic. Tulsa Chiropractor, pain, natural health care.

In Oklahoma you still have the right to choose between vaccinating your child or not. A simple exemption form available from the school nurse or the Oklahoma State Department of Health called the ODH form 216 – A, many of my patients tell me when they asked for such a form the school nurse she lies to them and says there is no such form and your child can’t come to school without being vaccinated. Why would there be an organized conspiracy of deception if there is clear evidence that vaccines are both safe and effective?

Is every child who gets a vaccine going to be severely damaged by it? Of course not. There are a lot of different factors that lead to reactions from vaccines. But all negative reactions to vaccines don’t always show up in the first month, year or even decade of life. Not only can the toxic metals and other additives to vaccines have the potential of causing long-term negative effects but the organism that they use in the vaccine has been known to set up housekeeping in the body commonly in the intestinal track producing long-term health problems.

toxic_worldDr. Keefe, Keefe Clinic. Tulsa Chiropractor, pain, natural health care.

Detoxification can be an important process in trying to eliminate the negative effects of vaccines. We recommend detoxification as a normal course of health recovery for most of our patients. But in some cases specialized procedures are needed to try to root out the viruses that have been hiding in the body for years that have caused inflammation, cancers and other health problems. Again not everybody has these issues but, in my opinion, it brings up a risk-benefit evaluation that goes against vaccines.

A lot of times, if you look behind the hysteria associated with an outbreak like with measles, you’ll find  in the vast majority of cases there is no long-term permanent catastrophic effect. The same can’t be said for children in third world countries who have horrible sanitation, dirty water and poor food supply. There you will find the very negative outcomes from the same diseases. In Africa they have found that giving a child one dose of 200,000 units of vitamin A will sharply decrease the death rate. There are more intelligent ways to deal with these childhood diseases then injecting toxic metals and other ingredients.

alzheimers-brain-Dr. Keefe, Keefe Clinic. Tulsa Chiropractor, pain, natural health care.

Just this week on an NPR station there was a heartbreaking story about the MMR vaccine. The parents had a healthy baby meeting all his developmental goals up to the point of getting the vaccine. They say on the way home from getting the vaccine the young child screamed constantly to the point they had to pull the car over to the side of the road. The child had a fever and when he woke up the next morning he was not the same child. The child suffered catastrophic brain injury that left him totally disabled into his adulthood. He has to be constantly monitored as he will run away if given the chance and has to wear adult diapers for the rest of his life.

 

I have found Studies that show unvaccinated children are a lot healthier than vaccinated ones. Buyer beware.

 

 

Chiropractic Effective for SI Joint Pain

A new study confirms that chiropractic care is an effective, safe way to treat sacroiliac joint pain.

sciaticColorDr. Keefe, Keefe Clinic. Tulsa Chiropractor, pain, natural health care.

CLICK PIC

The sacroiliac joint, or SI joint, is located at the base of the spine where the sacrum and pelvis connect to one another. SI joint pain can have a number of causes. Leg length discrepancies, pain or altered function of the hip, leg, and knee, and pregnancy are all common causes of SI joint pain. In pregnancy, the body produces hormones that cause the ligaments to relax. This can allow excessive movement in the SI joint, causing the bones to rub against each other.

Dr. Keefe, Keefe Clinic. Tulsa Chiropractor, pain, natural health care.

In this new study, researchers performed a single chiropractic session on 32 women with SI joint syndrome. The patients reported immediate relief and experienced significant reduction of pain after both 48 hours and one month after treatment.

This adds to research demonstrating that chiropractic is a powerful, drug-free way to treat musculoskeletal pain.

IN THE NEWS: Monsanto Bids to Take Over Syngenta—A Move to Assure a Pesticide-Saturated Future? Monsanto recently made a bid to take over Syngenta, the world’s largest pesticide producer. The $45.1 billion bid was rejected, but there’s still a chance for a merger. By trying to acquire Syngenta, Monsanto contradicts years of rhetoric about how its ultimate goal is to help farmers use less agrichemicals. More than 25 farmworker, environmental, and food safety organizations demand the USDA investigate reports of retaliation and suppression of research relating to the dangers of neonicotinoids and glyphosate. Not surprisingly, those who ate conventionally grown produce were found to have high concentrations of organophosphates (OPs) metabolites, whereas those who ate organic produce had significantly lower levels. Those who “often or always” ate organic had about 65 percent lower levels of pesticide residues compared to those who ate the least amount of organic produce. According to lead author Cynthia Curl: “The study suggests that by eating organically grown versions of those foods highest in pesticide residues, we can make a measurable difference.”

CONDITION OF THE WEEK: SPORTS STUDY The Study: The influence of pelvic adjustment on vertical jump height in female university students with functional leg length inequality The Facts: The authors took 30 female university students who all had functional leg length inequality.
