IN THE NEWS: Healthy living could prevent half of deaths from cancer Following a healthy lifestyle — which includes maintaining a healthy weight, exercising regularly and refraining from smoking — may prevent cancer, a new study finds. Healthy lifestyle choices could potentially prevent 20 to 40 percent of cancer cases and about half of cancer deaths, the study found. The new findings, however, “provide strong support for the argument that a large proportion of cancers are to due environmental factors and can be prevented by lifestyle modification,” the authors of the new study, Dr. Mingyang Song, a research fellow in epidemiology at Massachusetts General Hospital, and Dr. Edward Giovannucci, an associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, wrote in their paper. The researchers found that women in the high-risk group were 25 percent more likely to get cancer and 48 percent more likely to die from cancer during the study period than the women in the low-risk group. Men in the high-risk group were 33 percent more likely to get cancer and 44 percent more likely to die of cancer than the men in the low-risk group, according to the study.

WELLNESS: Shirataki Noodles — An Incredibly Healthy High-Fiber, No-Carb Food Vegetables aren’t the only high-fiber food; shirataki noodles may be the epitome of a high-fiber, low-net carb food, containing about 97 percent water and 3 percent fiber, zero calories, and no digestible carbs. Shirataki noodles are made from glucomannan fiber, which can aid with weight loss, reduce blood sugar and insulin levels, lower cholesterol, and help relieve constipation. This viscous fiber is fermented by gut microbes. Byproducts include short-chain fatty acids that calibrate your immune system and serve as substrate to produce ketones that efficiently fuel your mitochondria.

CONDITION OF THE WEEK: Hidden fears and brain function Sometimes brain function is inhibited by hidden fears. You might just sense that as stress when you try to balance your checkbook, remember things, or going places. Our brains can have misfiring circuits that cause issues under certain circumstances. For instance you might have a problem reading in front of people or remembering someone’s name. Yet when you’re alone those issues don’t appear to be present or under some other type of circumstance they might not be an issue. That’s because our brains can shut down when we fire up a faulty circuit due to past forgotten traumas. Emotional freedom technique can help eliminate these faulty circuits and allow for better brain function. Emotional freedom technique can also help eliminate certain fears or phobias that you are aware that you have. If you are dealing with any issue where you don’t believe that your brain is functioning at peak performance then discuss that on your next visit and we can determine if emotional freedom technique might benefit you.

FUNNY BONE: Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.@@ After hearing a sermon on Psalm 52:3-4 (lies and deceit), a man wrote the IRS, “I can’t sleep knowing that I have cheated on my income tax. Enclosed is a check for $150. If 
I still can’t sleep, I’ll send the rest.”@@ While I was out to lunch, my coworker answered my phone and told the caller that I would be back 
in 20 minutes. The woman asked, 
“Is that 20 minutes Central Standard Time?”

IN THE NEWS: Heartburn Can Be Easily Eliminated Without Hazardous, Habit Forming Drugs Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) like Nexium, Prilosec and Prevacid are designed to treat a very limited range of severe problems, yet as many as 20 million Americans take them for mild to moderate heartburn. PPIs have been linked to a heightened risk for a number of serious health problems, including chronic kidney disease, pneumonia, osteoporosis, hip fractures, dementia, heart disease, and heart attacks. There are many ways to eliminate heartburn or acid reflux without drugs, starting with eating real food and probiotic-rich fermented foods. Helpful supplements that help treat the underlying cause are also reviewed.

WELLNESS: Fluoride, the Only Drug Intentionally Added to Your Tap Water  Fluoride is an endocrine disrupting, neurotoxic, and bone-weakening substance that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) defines as a drug when used to prevent disease, such as dental caries. FDA recently announced that marketing fluoride drops and tablets for cavity prevention violates federal law, because FDA has never approved these products as either safe or effective. With water fluoridation, similar doses of fluoride contained in prescription fluoride drops and tablets are added to each glass a toddler drinks, without medical supervision, and without informed consent. NOTE: ALWAYS DRINK FILTERED WATER.

CONDITION OF THE WEEK: 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 . 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. 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.

FUNNY BONES:  A tom cat and a tabby cat were courting on a back fence at night. The tom leaned over to the tabby with pent up passion and purred… “I’ll die for you” The tabby gazed at him from under lowered eye lids and asked, “How many times?”.@@ An older man, not in the best physical condition, asked the trainer in the gym, “I want to impress that beautiful girl. Which machine should I use?” The trainer replied…”Use the ATM machine outside the gym!”@@ We are all here on earth to help others; what on earth the others are here for I don’t know. @@ The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.@@ I knew I was an unwanted baby when I saw that my bath toys were a toaster and a radio.- Joan Rivers

 IN THE NEWS: Staying in the game after concussion tied to longer recovery Continuing to play with a concussion may delay athletes from eventually returning to their sport by doing further damage to the brain and lengthening recovery time, a small U.S. study suggests. Past research has shown that “the brain is likely vulnerable to further physiologic and metabolic changes right after an injury – whether that be from sustaining more impacts or even from continued physical exertion,” said lead author Breton Asken, a neuropsychology graduate student in the University of Florida’s Clinical Psychology doctoral program. Athletes who played football, soccer, basketball, swimming, diving, volleyball and other sports were included. “Our findings indicate that immediately engaging your medical staff if you suspect you have sustained a concussion will give you the best chance to return to your sport more quickly,” Asken said. Side note: once you have a concussion it’s more likely you could have another one with lesser of an injury. The more concussions the more brain damage.

WELLNESS: Mumps Being Spread by and Among Vaccinated People Merck stands accused of falsifying data to artificially inflate the efficacy rating of their mumps vaccine. There is evidence to suggest the vaccine is, indeed, not working. At least 40 students at Harvard University have contracted mumps, and every single one has been vaccinated. Outbreaks in 2009 and 2006 also involved a majority of vaccinated people. The White House is seeking $2 billion to create a vaccine against the Zika virus, just like they did for bird flu, swine flu, SARS, and so many other false alarms that translate into drug company profits when taxpayer dollars fund the development of new vaccines.

FUNNY BONE: An avid duck hunter was in the market for a new bird dog. His search ended when he found a dog that could actually walk on water to retrieve a duck. Shocked by his find, he was sure none of his friends would ever believe him.
He decided to try to break the news to a friend of his, the eternal pessimist who refused to be impressed with anything. This, surely, would impress him. He invited him to hunt with him and his new dog. As they waited by the shore, a flock of ducks flew by. They fired, and a duck fell. The dog responded and jumped into the water. The dog, however, did not sink but instead walked across the water to retrieve the bird, never getting more than his paws wet. This continued all day long; each time a duck fell, the dog walked across the surface of the water to retrieve it. The pessimist watched carefully, saw everything, but did not say a single word. On the drive home the hunter asked his friend, “Did you notice anything unusual about my new dog?”
“I sure did,” responded the pessimist. “He can’t swim.”

One of the things I enjoy the best is seeing someone who has had a chronic health problem start to regain their health. Health issues are not easy. In some cases it’s taken years for patient to get to the state of disease that they come in to the office with. We have to literally reverse years of damage to the cells and organs and systems of the body. But with Vega testing it helps us get to the roots of the problem with the least amount of time and expense. When we start someone on a program for better health we include chiropractic care to open up the channels of communication with the central nervous system and the rest of the body. Adjustments produce marvelous results. Sometimes people can’t get well because their low and key nutrients and so nutritional therapy can produce miracles sometimes as well. If you combine that with exercise (simply walking is great) with rest and relaxation and a positive mental and spiritual attitude most people can reach their genetic potentials.

IN THE NEWS: Scientists witness ‘flash of light’ during conception, say discovery could aid IVF For the first time, researchers have witnessed the exact moment conception occurs— and have recorded the ensuing explosion of sparks that form when sperm meets an egg. The Telegraph reported that scientists had previously captured the moment in animals, but this is the first time it’s been recorded in humans. “It was remarkable,” senior co-author Teresa Woodruff, director of the Women’s Health Research Institute and chief of the Division of Obstetrics and Gynecology-Fertility Preservation at Northwestern University, told the Telegraph. “We discovered the zinc spark just five years ago in the mouse, and to see the zinc radiate out in a burst from each human egg was breathtaking.”  “This is an important discovery because it may give us a non-invasive and easily visible way to assess the health of an egg and eventually an embryo before implantation,” study co-author Dr. Eve Feinberg told the Telegraph.

WELLNESS: Harvard students isolated amid mumps outbreak The public health department in Cambridge, Mass., where Harvard is located, determined a month ago that all infected students to that point had received a mumps vaccine prior to contracting the infection. A department spokeswoman says she hasn’t heard of any confirmed cases in the city unrelated to the Harvard community. Mumps is a viral infection that causes swelling in the salivary glands and cheeks. This outbreak as well hundreds of others in the past have brought into question the effectiveness of vaccines. When you get a “childhood disease” naturally then you tend to establish a lifetime immunity. Outbreaks like this pose serious questions of vaccines effectiveness. These types of diseases appear to have normal lifecycles that come and go within a population on its own schedule. The most effective interventions that have severely limited these types of infections like measles and mumps have been due to the increase in sanitation, cleaner water and air and a much more diverse food supply.

CHIROPRACTIC: Concussions and traumatic brain injuries have been in the news recently due to a combination of factors: returning veterans, sports and car accidents. Signs and symptoms of a concussion may include: Headache or a feeling of pressure in the head, Temporary loss of consciousness, Confusion or feeling as if in a fog, Amnesia surrounding the traumatic event, Dizziness or “seeing stars”, Ringing in the ears, Nausea, Vomiting, Slurred speech, Delayed response to questions, Appearing dazed, Fatigue, Some symptoms of concussions may be immediate or delayed in onset by hours or days after injury, such as: Concentration and memory complaints, Irritability and other personality changes, Sensitivity to light and noise, Sleep disturbances, Psychological adjustment problems and depression, Disorders of taste and smell. There are no well-established diagnostic tests for concussions like MRI. There is hope in the near future through enhancing MRIs and CAT scans we can better diagnose concussions. Even though there is no medical treatment for concussions using chiropractic care and nutrition associated with inflammation has been found very effective.

ALLERGIES

ALLERGIES

Spring and fall tend to be the worst times of the year for allergies. Some people will suffer year-round particularly if they have a mold or dust allergy. Allergies can be from a mild nuisance, mucus draining down the back of the throat, to a full blown attack where you have sneezing, congested sinuses, runny eyes and nose etc. many people who aren’t aware of natural healthcare just suppress their allergies with antihistamines. Most of those people don’t realize antihistamines suppress their immune system. Does that sound like a smart thing to do, suppressing your immune system? I have seen one study that associates chronic antihistamine use with cancer. Think about it for second if you chronically use antihistamines you’re chronically suppressing your immune system that is essential in keeping you well, particularly in defending against things like cancer.

At Keefe Clinic our number one remedy for allergies is our “Allergy Mix” which is a homeopathic dilution of all the antigens commonly found in Tulsa air. Not only do most people noticed immediate symptomatic relief when they start taking the mix, the mix is actually working at correcting the immune system dysfunction that leads to the allergy symptoms in the first place. The longer you take the mix the more permanent the immunity is to the pollens that affect you. Along with the allergy mix we usually recommend “companion products” that help support the immune system in regulating the allergic response. Some of these companion products include vitamins C, Quercetin or adrenal support of different types.

ALLER-ALLDr. Keefe, Keefe Clinic. Tulsa Chiropractor, pain, natural health care.

Aller-All (take three (3) tablets 1 to 2 times daily, preferably 20-30 minutes before meals) is a product that has most of the companion products to help support the allergy mix. Even though Aller-All gives a good natural antihistamine affect, without the allergy mix you won’t get a permanent cure. But Aller-All can be taken by itself. The allergy mix can only be purchased at our office as we custom make it for the local environment. Even though, our allergy mix can be custom-made to meet the particular needs of a given patient

DIET: EARLY INTRODUCTION TO ALLERGENIC FOODS MAY BE KEY TO PREVENTING KIDS’ ALLERGIES For decades, pediatricians and other health experts argued that parents should delay a child’s exposure to so-called allergenic foods such as peanuts, eggs, wheat and cow’s milk. But in recent years that belief has changed and now researchers are eager to prove early introduction, not avoidance, is actually the key to preventing serious food allergies. That kind of thinking has led to a number of studies, including the Learning About Peanuts (LEAP) trial published last year. It involved 600 children aged 4 months to 11 months who were at high risk for peanut allergies (they already had egg allergies and eczema). The group was randomized to either consume or avoid peanuts until age 5. At the end of that time period, the researchers found exposure in the first five years of life led to an 81 percent reduction in peanut allergies.

IN THE NEWS: Patient brain dead, 5 others injured after French drug trial disaster PARIS –  One person has been left brain dead and five others are in serious condition after taking part in a clinical trial in France of an experimental painkiller made by Portuguese drug company Bial, the French Health Ministry said on Friday. Four of the six men hospitalized have “neurological problems”– of which three could have “irreversible” brain damage, CHU de Rennes hospital chief neurosurgeon Gilles Edan said Friday at a press conference. Another man is being kept in the hospital, but is in a less critical condition. The medicine involved works by targeting the body’s pain-controlling endocannabinoid system, which is also responsible for the human response to cannabis.

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.
