CONDITION OF THE WEEK: ARTHRITIS Eagles rocker Glenn Frey suffered from debilitating rheumatoid arthritis for years — and died partly because of the pills he took for it, his manager said Tuesday. In today’s environment with toxicity, rise of junk food and the general breakdown of healthy lifestyle arthritis is becoming a bigger problem. It’s sad to read about someone who’s treatment for condition caused their early death. But the facts are over 2000 people a week die from their prescription drugs. Arthritis, best prevented, can be treated with natural healthcare. First of all you need to be on an anti-inflammatory diet, because our chronic diseases from heart disease to arthritis develop in a inflammatory chemistry. There are several anti-inflammatory nutrients like curcumin that can improve arthritis. With rheumatoid arthritis there’s usually an immune system component that needs to be corrected. Drugs don’t do that.

DIET: Eating certain fruits linked to lower risk of erectile dysfunction Flavonoid-rich foods like blueberries, cherries, radishes and citrus fruits may reduce the risk of erectile dysfunction in men, with the greatest impact on people younger than 70. In a conducted by the University of East Anglia (UEA) and Harvard University, researchers found that in addition to eating flavonoids, a diet with a higher fruit intake overall was associated with a 14 percent reduced risk of erectile dysfunction.

IN THE NEWS: Man drank himself to death … with caffeine When an unidentified man in his 20s in Kyushu, Japan, died suddenly and inexplicably in the fall of 2014, police ordered an inquest into the cause of his death. Now Dr. Shinichi Kubo, a professor of forensics at Fukuoka University, is announcing that it appears to be the country’s first documented case of fatal daily caffeine consumption, reports Japan Times. “We had never heard of fatal caffeine intoxication,” the Health, Labor and Welfare Ministry said. The man, who worked midnight to dawn at a 24-hour gasoline station, had vomited on multiple counts in the year leading up to his death; Japan Times reports such vomiting can signal caffeine intoxication.

IN THE NEWS: DR. MANNY: The hidden danger in popular heartburn medications Now, it’s not our fault – many of us are being influenced dramatically by the pharmaceutical industry’s commercialization of medicine. These days, we can’t watch a television show without being bombarded by well-made commercials telling us that there is a pill to cure whatever medical condition we’re suffering from. Now, a new study suggests that people who take proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) to treat acid reflux, heartburn and indigestion may be more likely to develop chronic kidney disease than those who don’t take these medications sold – often over-the-counter — under the brand names of Prevacid, Prilosec and Zegerid. PPIs work by reducing the production of acid in the stomach. (We can help with acid reflux.)

WELLNESS: REASONS TO DRINK FILTERED WATER More than half of the chemicals found in U.S. drinking water are unregulated, and many of the legal limits may be too lenient for safety. Firefighting foam used on military bases and other fire testing sites have contaminated many water tables across the U.S. with PFCs — chemicals linked to thyroid disease and cancer. Agricultural runoff, prescription drugs flushed down the sewer, and aging water pipes are other significant sources of water pollution. Chlorine and fluorine are just some of the chemicals that can damage arteries and led to heart disease. Ask us about a filtration system.

 CHIROPRACTIC: Chiropractic and DNA Repair Can regular Chiropractic care affect you on a genetic level? The answer is yes. But how? DNA is the molecule of life. It contains our genes which make us what we are. DNA makes up our chromosomes which are held in the nucleus of our cells. DNA is very fragile and susceptible to damage from environmental stresses. It is estimated that our cells experience anywhere from 1,000 to 1,000,000 incidences of DNA damage PER DAY. In a landmark study published in the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research, chiropractors collaborating with researchers at the University of Lund found that chiropractic care could influence basic physiological processes affecting oxidative stress and DNA repair.  These findings offer a scientific explanation for the positive health benefits reported by patients receiving chiropractic care. Long-term chiropractic care of two or more years was shown to re-establish a normal physiological state independent of age, sex, or nutritional supplements. Symptom-free or primary wellness subjects under chiropractic care demonstrated higher mean serum thiol levels (the chemical that repairs DNA) than patients with active disease, and produced some values that were higher than normal wellness values in non-chiropractic subjects.

FUNNY BONE: I went to buy some camouflage trousers the other day but I couldn’t find any.@@ I don’t know how I got over the hill without getting to the top.@@ Lying on his deathbed, a loving husband was wavering between life and death when he thought he smelled chocolate chip cookies baking. They were his very favorite, so he dragged himself out of bed, crawled to the kitchen and was just reaching up to take a cookie off the plate when his wife slapped his hand with a spatula. “Don’t touch!” she commanded. “They’re for the funeral.”

IN THE NEWS: IF YOU’RE ON STATINS YOU NEED TO QUIT. One in four Americans over the age of 45 take a statin drug to reduce their cholesterol. Most are prescribed a statin as a primary prevention strategy against heart attack and stroke. In one recent study, statin use was associated with a 52 percent increased prevalence and extent of calcified coronary plaque compared to non-users. A second study showed type 2 diabetics with advanced atherosclerosis who are frequent statin users have significantly higher amounts of coronary artery calcification compared to less frequent users of the drug. Statins have been shown to significantly increase your risk of developing type 2 diabetes. In one study, statins increased the risk of type 2 diabetics in postmenopausal women by 48 percent. Adverse effects of statin drugs include muscle problems, nerve damage in hands and feet, immune depression, pancreas and liver dysfunction, sexual dysfunction, cataracts, memory loss, and an increased risk of cancer. If you’re on a statin drug, you must take at least 100-200 mg of ubiquinol or CoQ10 per day as statins deplete your body of CoQ10.

WELLNESS: ENDOCRINE-DISRUPTING CHEMICALS THREATEN WOMEN’S HEALTH THROUGHOUT LIFE Precocious puberty is triggered by premature release of hormones, which results in sexual maturation, sometimes years before the natural norm. Environmental exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals plays a major if not decisive role. Store your food and beverages in glass, rather than plastic, and avoid using plastic wrap. Use glass containers if heating food in your microwave, as heat tends to increase the release of chemicals from plastic. Be aware that even“BPA-free” plastics typically leach other endocrine-disrupting chemicals that are just as bad as BPA.  Recent research also claims that high soda consumption can affect young girls’ rate of maturation. Many of the same chemicals that cause precocious puberty are also associated with early menopause, which can have an adverse effect on ovarian function.

CONDITION OF THE WEEK: THE PROPER USE OF NATURAL HEALTHCARE Anytime you have a neck or back problem or an arm or leg problem chiropractic care should be your first approach. But what if you have a bladder problem or headache or if you have a skin rash or digestive problem, what then? Recently I saw a patient from another state that came in to see me for a digestive issue. She had it for a while but of course she lived out of state so she sought care locally. They had put her on a dangerous immune suppressing medication which caused so many side effects with her she had to discontinue. Unfortunately healthcare can be a dangerous proposition. With the advancement of pharmaceuticals, drugs have become more and more dangerous to take with questionable benefit. With Vega testing we were quickly able to determine what the underlying causes were and the appropriate treatment. Surprise, surprise the treatment was not some dangerous drug but a combination of detoxification and nutritional therapy to heal the digestive problem. I have seen this repeatedly over the past 40 years in practice and it brings back a motto that’s been in chiropractic but repeats says: CHIROPRACTIC FIRST, DRUG SECOND AND SURGERY LAST. Don’t let your restrictive insurance cause you to make a mistake with your health or family’s health. Try natural healthcare first, you’ll be glad you did.

IN THE NEWS:  Dutch government to ban e-cigarettes for people under 18 THE HAGUE –  Electronic cigarettes are to be banned in the Netherlands for people aged less than 18, the Dutch health ministry said in a statement on Friday. E-cigarettes, which electrically vaporize a nicotine-infused solution, are touted by their proponents as a healthier alternative to traditional cigarettes, but authorities worldwide have warned that the science concerning their health effects is not yet clear. Note: don’t be seduced by the next “new” thing. This product is dangerous to your health. Today news reported a fire started in a bedroom from e-cigarette charger.

WELLNESS: Onion Power! Onions are an excellent source of heart-healthy, cancer-fighting quercetin. Onions contain more disease-fighting polyphenols than even garlic or leeks. The sulfur compounds in onions are thought to have anti-clotting properties as well as help to lower triglycerides. Flavonoid-rich foods like onions may also inhibit the growth of H. pylori, a type of bacteria responsible for most ulcers.
