IN THE NEWS: Superbugs are on track to kill 10 million people by 2050 if things don’t change—fast In November of 2015, scientists in southeastern China were combing through bacterial samples collected from hospitals in the Guangdong and Zhejiang provinces when they discovered something that would immediately grab the attention of the entire medical community. Many of the bacteria collected were carrying a new gene called MCR-1. MCR-1 produces an enzyme that makes bacteria invincible to one of the world’s most powerful antibiotics, a drug called colistin, which is only used as a last resort when all other antibiotics have failed. This is a disturbing article as I have been following this issue for over 25 years. About 25 years ago the AMA Journal was discussing the possibility of removing the right to prescribe antibiotics for most physicians simply because they were irresponsible in prescribing them. Bronchitis, colds and flu’s, cough, most sore throats, most ear infections and most sinus infections are just a few of the known cases where antibiotics are completely useless. Yet how many times have you gone to the doctor with these symptoms and received antibiotics? About 15 years ago it was estimated that 5000 people a year would die from antibiotic resistant bacterial infections, last year was 23,000. You see why this article is important.

WELLNESS: High protein ‘man’ foods that aren’t steak If you’re a “Man’s Man” you probably like steak – thick, juicy, and full of flavor. And while steak is an excellent source of protein – about 40 grams of protein in a 5-ounce serving — there are other sources of protein that will also put hair on your chest, so to speak. Salmon which provides heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids but less saturated fat.  Greek yogurt 1 cup of nonfat Greek yogurt packs in 20 grams of protein.  Eggs offers 7 grams of high-quality protein. Non-beef jerky turkey, pork, bison. Burritos A bean burrito made with brown rice will provide all the essential amino acids found in steak, and can easily pack in 20 grams or more of protein. Load yours up with cilantro, jalapeno, and chopped onions for tons of flavor without extra salt.

CHIROPRACTIC: WHAT TO DO ABOUT WHIPLASH Whiplash is the most common injury associated with motor vehicle accidents, affecting up to 83 percent of those involved in collisions, and is a common cause of chronic disability. The Quebec Task Force (QTF) on Whiplash Associated Disorders defines whiplash as “bony or soft tissue injuries” resulting “from rear-end or side impact, predominantly in motor vehicle accidents, and from other mishaps” as a result of “an acceleration-deceleration mechanism of energy transfer to the neck.” It is estimated that as many as four per 1,000 people may experience a whiplash-related injury and associated pain syndromes. The overall economic burden of whiplash injury, including medical care, disability and sick leave, is estimated at a staggering $3.9 billion annually in the U.S. alone. • Neck pain and stiffness,  Headaches, Arm pain, Thoracic outlet symptoms, Dizziness, Lack of concentration, Degenerative arthritis in the cervical spine, Disc herinations.

Muscle pain

Muscle pain

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

Muscle pain that hangs on can be annoying. Be it from an accident, beginning an exercise program or just sleeping in the wrong position, adjustments and trigger point therapy can be quite effective.

Sometimes you can have muscle problems due to toxicity and we offer several detox programs to help (Alkalize Detox Green Superfood 1 serving per day). Nutritional deficiencies can also play a part in muscle pain. Magnesium is the most deficient mineral in the American diet and many people need to supplement with magnesium. Magnesium Complex (2-4per day).

For muscle injuries Pain Relief Cream is extremely effective. Don’t forget to drink enough water because dehydration can lead to muscle problems: your water needs are based on your body weight. One half of your body weight in ounces is your flushing or cleansing dose, 80% of that is your minimum dose. For instance a 100 pound person, then 50 ounces is a cleansing dose and 40 ounces is the minimum dose per day in fluids.

IN THE NEWS: WHEN MEDICAL PRACTICES KILL There’s an interesting contradiction within healthcare. In a crisis situation drugs and surgery can save lives but yet in the run-of-the-mill health problems the same tools can become dangerous. The overuse of antibiotics is a good example. When antibiotics were first discovered they actually saved lives. Unfortunately because of their overuse they are responsible for increasing death rate from antibiotic resistant bacteria. For those of you who grew up enjoying the Muppets will remember in 1990, it caused the death of Muppets creator, Jim Henson. Today, 23,000 Americans die each year from infections caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Across the world, the estimated annual mortality rate is 700,000. If these trends continue, by 2050, 10 million people globally will die each year, as the potent diseases of previous centuries return to their old force, according to the Review on Antimicrobial Resistance. The sad thing is that the vast majority of individuals with infections could control them with natural methods. We have many natural immune system products that cannot only help you overcome infections naturally but will make your immune system stronger to prevent future infections.

NECK PAINN

CONDITION OF THE WEEK: A PAIN IN THE NECK maybe you know someone who’s been called that. But having that is no laughing matter. Misalignments in the neck are responsible for sleep disorders, headaches, dizziness, feelings of stress, sinus problems, vision issues, throat conditions, shoulder problems, elbow and wrist issues and numbness and tingling into the fingers. Neck misalignments can commonly disintegrate into arthritic conditions that can be debilitating. The safest treatment on the planet is specific chiropractic adjustments to realign the spine and take pressure off the nerves and blood vessels within the neck. If you or someone you know suffers from neck pain have them call 918-663-1111 and get the problem corrected. Chiropractic works!

Sleep disorders

Without sleep your body will break down pretty quickly. One of the things patients tell us once they first start getting adjusted is that they sleep better. Tension within the nervous system can disrupt sleep. There is also other factors like exposing yourself to a computer screen, iPod or cell phone right before you go to sleep. For some people this disrupts their melatonin output and can disrupt sleep. For those people any amount of light can be a problem and so ordering blackout screens from places like Amazon can be helpful. Sometimes relaxing music or nature sounds can improve sleep. We have included some supplements in this post that can help you sleep.

I’ve listed products that can help you get a better nights sleep.

WELLNESS: More Than Half of The American Diet is Ultra-Processed Junk Food An astonishing 60 percent of the food Americans eat is ULTRA-processed, and these foods account for 90 percent of the added sugar consumption in the U.S. About 2 percent of the calories in processed foods come from added sugars. By definition, unprocessed or minimally processed contain none. Ultra-processed foods get 21 percent of their calories from added sugars. The 2015 U.S. dietary guidelines recommend limiting sugar intake to a max of 10 percent of daily calories. Cutting down on ultra-processed foods is a simple way to reduce your added sugar intake.

CONDITION OF THE WEEK: INJURIES AND CAR ACCIDENTS The number one cause for disability in any Western country is due to automobile accidents. What is even more concerning is patients will have marked disability 10 to 20 years after an accident in which they didn’t feel they were hurt. With any accident, be it a car accident or slip and fall, you can misaligned vertebrae in your neck or back that if not corrected will lead to degenerate over time. You can misaligned other joints like elbow joints, wrist, knee or ankle that because of mechanical friction arthritis can develop. Chiropractic adjustments of the neck, back, arm or leg can restore normal joint function and prevent degenerative changes.

CONDITION OF THE WEEK: DETOX 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.

IN THE NEWS: CDC urges doctors to curb prescribing painkillers Prescription painkillers should not be a first choice for treating common ailments like back pain and arthritis, according to new federal guidelines designed to reshape how doctors prescribe drugs like OxyContin and Vicodin. Amid an epidemic of addiction and abuse tied to these powerful opioids drugs, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is urging primary care doctors to try nonprescription choices before turning to painkillers for chronic pain. Opioid drugs include medications like morphine and oxycodone as well as illegal narcotics like heroin. Chiropractic is the safest and most effective way to eliminate the source of most pain. Tell someone about chiropractic you could save their lives. In 2014, U.S. doctors wrote nearly 200 million prescriptions for opioid painkillers, while deaths linked to the drugs climbed to roughly 19,000 — the highest number on record.

When our stress handling system start to break down then we start to break down. When stress gets out of control our cardiovascular system, immune system, digestive system and hormonal system will start to suffer. Improper stress handling can affect our sleep, our attitude, our concentration and memory. The adrenals and the nervous system are the two areas to support first. Sereni-Pro (2-4 per day) is a great product to support the adrenal glands and glycoplex (1-2 per day) is a great B complex to support the nervous system. Chiropractic adjustments and exercise can help lessen the hormones of stress and improve your ability to handle stress a lot better.
