WELLNESS: Eat More Nuts, and Sooner Too Compared to people who avoid nuts, those who eat nuts on a regular basis tend to have a lower risk for diabetes, better cardiovascular health, a reduced mortality risk, and greater longevity. According to the most recent research, eating 10 grams of nuts each day may reduce your risk of death from any cause by 23 percent. Research suggests that exposing infants and young children with peanut allergy to trace amounts of peanuts at an early age can help de-sensitize their immune systems and boost their tolerance.

CHIROPRACTIC: MY STORY by DR. JOHN KEEFE  It is a scary thing to see your first born child sick, tied down to the bed, crying and scared.  Being in a hospital you assume they would know what to do.  That evening the doctor came by to explain that they didn’t know what to do and left us alone with a desperately sick child. My six-month old son was in the hospital fighting for his life.  As babies do from time to time, Brian developed diarrhea.  Only in his case after two different medications failed and he became dehydrated with a temperature, I had to rush him to the hospital.  I watched for four hours as they tried to put a needle in one of his blood vessels.  When I was allowed  back in the room Brian was tied to a hospital bed, his arms tied down, his legs tied down and a needle in his leg because they couldn’t find a vein.  After a day and a half I realized if I wanted to save my son’s life, I would have to do something completely different.  I called my chiropractor and explained the problem.  Telling me what to feed him and having spinal adjustments, I saw my son start to recover.  In a matter of days, he started to return to his normal self. The power that made the body can heal the body.

Heart disease

Heart disease

heart attackDr. Keefe, Keefe Clinic. Tulsa Chiropractor, pain, natural health care.

The cholesterol theory of heart disease has been disproven several years ago. The most common cause for heart is an inflammatory chemistry. Junk food, stress a diet out of balance can all lead to an inflammatory chemistry. Inflammation can lead to changes in the coronary arteries which lead to narrowing of the arteries which can lead to a heart attack or stroke. Ways of reducing inflammation in the body includes eating anti-inflammatory foods ( http://www.keefeclinic.com/wp/foods-that-reduce-inflammation/ ), fish oils are very beneficial, drinking alkaline water as well as alkaline producing foods. Antioxidants like pomegranate plus is very protective and Heart Health has herbs for circulation to the heart. I include the linked products for your consideration.

Probiotic strain cures peanut allergies in 80 percent of children

Probiotic strain cures peanut allergies in 80 percent of children

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

Now scientists in Australia at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute are finding out that probiotics are the biggest step toward curing fatal peanut allergies in children. The 30 children involved in this study were allergic to peanuts at the onset. During the 18-month study, the children were given both peanut flour and a probiotic called Lactobacillus rhamnosus. After a year and a half, 80 percent of the children were able to tolerate peanuts. It appears that Lactobacillus rhamnosus is the missing piece of the children’s immune systems. Lead researcher Mimi Tang said the families involved in the study were so impressed with the probiotic treatment that they said it “changed their lives.”

Dr. Keefe, Keefe Clinic. Tulsa Chiropractor, pain, natural health care.
Indeed, understanding the commensal bacteria system in the human body and supplementing with the appropriate bacteria could cure various allergies and protect the body from multiple pathogens.

“These findings provide the vital first step towards developing a cure for peanut allergy and possibly for all food allergies,” Mimi Tang told Melbourne’s Herald Sun. “It will be a major advance for medical science if we can find a treatment that is curative. It will change the lives completely for children and adults who have peanut allergies,” she said.

Lactobacillus rhamnosus is often found in yogurt, but the amount used in the study was highly concentrated and was equivalent to 44 pounds of yogurt. By the end of the 18-month study, the children were able to tolerate up to 14 peanuts per day or four grams of peanut protein. The normal recovery rate during this time period is only 4 percent. The probiotic Lactobacillus rhamnosus boosts recovery from a meager 4 percent to an astounding 80 percent.

IN THE NEWS: READING FROM A TABLET BEFORE BED MAY AFFECT SLEEP QUALITY  People who read from an iPad for 30 minutes before going to sleep felt less sleepy and had different electrical activity in the brain during sleep than those who read from a physical book, a recent study found. But the time it took to fall asleep and time spent sleeping were similar under both conditions. However, “we found a delay of 30 minutes in the generation of the restorative slow waves during sleep in the iPad condition,” Gronli told Reuters Health by email. A new Apple OS update includes a nighttime mode, which takes into account the effects of too much blue light in the late evening by filtering it out, said Christian Cajochen, head of the Center for Chronobiology at the University of Basel in Switzerland who was not part of the new study.

WELLNESS: 7 DOMESTIC FACTORS THAT CAN MAKE OR BREAK YOUR HEALTH More than 80,000 chemicals are put into American household products, food, and food packaging each year, a majority of which are not tested for safety beforehand. Common domestic sources of chemical exposure include food, personal care and feminine hygiene products, household cleaning agents, and items treated with flame retardants. Healthier alternatives are suggested. Factors such as light, temperature, and EMF emissions can also hamper your healthy lifestyle efforts by affecting your circadian rhythm, hampering sleep, and/or disrupting your biological functioning. Just another good reason to detoxify on a regular basis.

CONDITION OF THE WEEK: Breaking the code of disease Part of the challenge that any doctor has is trying to understand and to help a patient with a certain condition. In chiropractic and natural healthcare we take a totally different approach in treating our patients. Instead of using drugs that just suppress symptoms, at a cost of sometimes serious side effects, chiropractors try to focus on the underlying cause. So what do we do if the cause is not generally recognized or understood? That’s where we have to break the code of disease to try to get to the root cause. There are a number of diseases that most doctors would say we don’t understand the cause yet chiropractic helps on a regular basis. That’s because most doctors don’t work with nutritional therapy, energy medicine or chiropractic adjustments. Besides standard tools like lab work, x-ray or physical exam we utilize a biofeedback technique that we call “Vega testing”. This allows us, in many cases, to unravel the underlying cause of a given condition for each patient. For instance let’s talk about chronic fatigue syndrome it’s been my experience that what works for one patient doesn’t necessarily work for the next. But with the understanding the body can heal itself and working with the body’s intelligence we can usually unravel the hidden code for a particular condition.

HEALTHY SODA SWAPS THAT AREN’T WATER High fructose corn syrup and other added sugars have received significant attention lately, and many people have dutifully switched to water. Matcha madness: If you like the idea of a nutritious green drink but don’t have time to brew your beverage, consider keeping matcha green tea powder on hand. Because matcha is made from high-quality tea, and the whole leaves are ingested, it’s a more potent source of nutrients than steeped green tea. Cold brew tonic: Cold-brewed coffee has been popular at trendy brunches for some time. Like the name suggests, no heat is involved in the process and grounds are steeped in water for hours—sometimes overnight. Buggy beverage: You may have heard that certain bacteria and yeasts – called probiotics – are good for your health, especially your digestive system. Now the fermentation front has made its way to the soda aisle with Obi probiotic soda. Made with kefir (a fermented drink) and orange juice, Obi soda has no added sugars or artificial sweeteners and comes in flavors like Meyer Lemon & Lime and Organic Root Beer.

CHIROPRACTIC: CHIROPRACTIC CAUSES A SENSE OF WELL-BEING One of the well-known benefits of chiropractic adjustments is that patients indicate a better sense of well-being. Studies have shown that adjustments cause a cascade of chemical reactions within the central nervous system that can improve moods, raise energy and increase a sense of well-being. This has been proven a great help to people with addictions. But other improvements can include less anxiety, decrease in depression, better sleep patterns and improved immune function. Chiropractic adjustments improve communication between the central nervous system and the organs and systems of the body. This improve communication improves health throughout the body. Tell someone about chiropractic!

Balance is the Key

At the heart of every woman’s health are her hormones, which are always in flux. Their ebb and flow influence all aspects of physical and emotional well-being. When a woman’s hormones are in balance, she feels healthy, energetic, and vital. Starting with puberty, each menstrual cycle orchestrates hormonal changes to prepare a woman for another stage in life. And as women age, gradual fluctuations through postmenopause may further influence virtually every aspect of health.

Modern Lifestyles Disrupt Hormonal Ebb and Flow
Today’s demanding lifestyles put more stress on women’s bodies than they were designed to handle—and women often neglect to take care of themselves properly. The delicate, natural hormonal rhythms and balancing mechanisms are easily offset by factors such as poor nutrition, stress, and lack of sleep or exercise. To complicate matters, estrogen-mimicking chemicals in the environment and hormones in meat and dairy products can interfere with the balance of estrogens and estrogen metabolites. Many women are also faced with an imbalance in the way their hormones are excreted and renewed. These disruptions can cause vitality to diminish and contribute to long-term health concerns.

CONDITION OF THE WEEK: HEART DISEASE is a condition that is best treated through natural methods. Studies show that most medical approaches don’t extend life as much as reports would indicate. Balloons, stents and bypass surgery come with several complications. Chiropractic adjustments help balance the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous system which is crucial to heart health. Targeted nutrients to the blood vessels that surround the heart can cause dramatic improvement in short periods of time. Following your body type diet with emphasis on anti-inflammatory foods and balancing the body’s pH can take a surgical heart condition and turn it into a healthy heart in the matter of weeks.
