IN THE NEWS: Exposure to violence hinders short-term memory, cognitive control  Being exposed to and actively remembering violent episodes—even those that happened up to a decade before—hinders short-term memory and cognitive control, according to a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS). The study, which was co-authored by Princeton University’s Pietro Ortoleva, examined more than 500 civilians in Colombia, a country that has experienced both urban violence and rural warfare within the past two decades. The findings demonstrate the long-lasting effects of violence on cognition and memory recall and highlight the need for policies that provide proper therapy for those coping with violence. “Memory and cognitive control impact how people do in school, how they perform at work and if they can keep their jobs, and how they fare in life in general, which all has significant impacts on the economy as a whole,” said Ortoleva, a professor of economics and public affairs at Princeton’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. “Our results demonstrate that exposure to violence can have effects on cognitive functions,” said Ortoleva. “Besides the obvious negative effects on the physical and psychological well-being, this may lead to vicious cycles: both poverty and violence hinder the ability to develop for a person or a group, which in turn may generate further poverty and violence. Emotional freedom technique is something that we use in our office to help the mind process emotional injury. If you feel that you are dealing with issues like this asked Dr. Keefe on your next visit for an evaluation.

WELLNESS: Heartburn Drugs Increase Mortality Proton pump inhibitors are commonly used to treat heartburn, but have been shown to do far more harm than good, raising your risk of kidney disease, dementia, heart attacks and premature death. Research clearly shows PPIs are outrageously overprescribed and misused, and do far more harm than good. There are many alternative treatment strategies that can help ease this painful problem without the serious side effects associated with PPIs, which include kidney disease, pneumonia, osteoporosis, hip fractures, dementia and an increased risk for heart disease, heart attacks and premature death. Most acid reflux cases are related to insufficient amounts of stomach acid, food allergies, Helicobacter pylori imbalance and/or hiatal hernia. Gallbladder disease can also be mistaken for heartburn. The long-term answer to heartburn and acid indigestion is to restore your natural gastric balance and function. The most important step is to eat real food, as processed foods and sugars are a surefire way to exacerbate acid reflux. Reseeding your gut with beneficial bacteria, either from traditionally fermented foods or a high-quality probiotic supplement, is also important. Aside from that, there are a number of natural substances that can help address the root of the problem. To address heartburn, eat unprocessed food and fermented foods, and take supplemental digestive enzymes. Foods such as papaya, pineapple and ginger can also help, as well as a number of other supplements.

CONDITION OF THE WEEK: Phantom organ symptoms A lot of people have heard of phantom limb syndrome where patients who have lost an arm or leg can still feel that appendage. The reason for that is the place in the brain where that limb is controlled and coordinated is still there even though the limb is gone. In a lot of cases the trauma that caused the limb to be lost produced subluxations that press on the nerves that used to go down the arm or leg. Another phantom pain is when an organ has been removed like a gallbladder or spleen from an accident. These patients can still suffer symptoms even though they no longer have the organ. Both chiropractic adjustments and even nutritional therapy can help these annoying complaints, they can be resolved in a high percentage of the cases. Chiropractic care and nutritional therapy should be your 1st choice of treatment. Chiropractic 1st, drug 2nd, surgery last.

IN THE NEWS: Oxygen and hyperbaric oxygen therapy reverses brain damage in drowned toddler Medical researchers report the case of the reversal of brain volume loss in a 2-year-old drowning victim unresponsive to all stimuli treated with normobaric oxygen (oxygen at sea level) and hyperbaric oxygen therapy. The patient and family then traveled to New Orleans where 78 days post-drowning, Dr. Harch began treating her with hyperbaric oxygen therapy. She “dove” in a hyperbaric chamber for 45 minutes a day, five days a week for 40 sessions. At the beginning of each session, the patient showed visually apparent and/or physical examination-documented neurological improvement. After 10 HBOT sessions, the patient’s mother reported that her daughter was “near normal” except for gross motor function, and physical therapy was re-instituted. After 39 HBOT sessions, the patient exhibited assisted gait, speech level greater than pre-drowning, near normal motor function, normal cognition, improvement on nearly all neurological exam abnormalities, discontinuance of all medications, as well as residual emotional, gait and temperament deficits. Gait improvement was documented immediately upon returning home. An MRI at 27 days following HBOT session 40 and 162 days post-drowning demonstrated mild residual injury and near-complete reversal of cortical and white matter atrophy.

WELLNESS: MUSIC THERAPY CLINIC at ORU  The Music Therapy program at Oral Roberts University is built upon an integrated music therapy clinical program of Cognitive-Behavioral Music Therapy and Neurologic Music Therapy (NMT). The integrated program develops clinical knowledge and treatment based on analysis of individuals’ cognitive, speech & language, social/emotional (psychological), and physical behaviors, and prepares music therapy students to utilize scientific evidence regarding human perception and the production of music to treat disorders of the human nervous system. The Music Therapy program is dedicated to providing quality music therapy services to the local community through the operation of a professional Music Therapy Clinic. This clinic will allow students to gain professional experience evaluating and treating patients, while being supervised by three board-certified music therapists, Dr. Hayoung Lim,  Dr. Hyun-Jung Lee, and Jacqueline Cox. In every music therapy treatment, music is used as a tool to reach nonmusical goals, whether physical, cognitive, emotional, social or spiritual. The techniques used during sessions are based on research and extended collegiate study. Among many possible goals addressed by music therapists might be: Increasing memory recall  Improving motor coordination  Increasing attention to task Improving steadiness of gait  Improving speech and communication  Increasing reality-based thinking  Decreasing anxiety  Decreasing pain  Adjusting mood  Developing bonds among family members Increasing coping skills

CHIROPRACTIC: Achy joints, migraines and stomach cramps? Ditch the painkillers and learn how to EAT your pain away 1. GET YOUR FIVE-A-DAY It is one health message that no-one can claim to be unaware of – eating five pieces of fresh fruit or vegetables each day is beneficial to a person’s general health and wellbeing. However, a specific benefit of eating a rainbow of colours, is that it can also help to get rid of pain 2. THE ‘F’-WORD Fats in our diet are metabolised in the body and turned into ‘local hormones’, known as prostaglandins. ‘There is evidence that the omega-3 fatty acids reduce it. In contrast, omega-6 fatty acids are linked to increasing inflammation. 3. BUILDING BLOCKS Protein is essential for repair and healing in the body, but high levels of protein from meats may actually have the opposite effect. 4. SPICE IT UP! Include plenty of gentle spices in your meals.The spices turmeric, cayenne and ginger are known to have an anti-inflammatory action in the body. 5. HOLD ON TO YOUR WATER BOTTLE Water transports nutrients to where they are needed in the body and removes toxins, waste products and dead cells, which are produced in higher quantities when there is inflammation. 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 has 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 is 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.  6. SAY ‘NO’ TO… Sugary foods and refined, Coffee, Fizzy drinks, Saturated Fats.

IN THE NEWS: This STD is becoming ‘smarter’ and harder to treat Gonorrhea is becoming harder and in some cases impossible to treat with antibiotics, the World Health Organization said. “The bacteria that cause gonorrhea are particularly smart. Every time we use a new class of antibiotics to treat the infection, the bacteria evolve to resist them,” said Teodora Wi, a human reproduction specialist at the WHO, in a news release. Each year, about 78 million people worldwide are infected with gonorrhea, the WHO said. In the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates there are 820,000 new gonorrhea infections each year. Earlier this year, gonorrhea was named among 11 types of bacteria that health experts believe pose the greatest threats to human health because they are in urgent need of new antibiotics. Gonorrhea has developed resistance to nearly every class of antibiotics used to treat it such as penicillin, tetracycline and fluoroquinolones, the CDC said. “It’s important to understand that ever since antibiotics appeared on the scene, Neisseria gonorrhoeae has been fairly quick in developing resistance to all the classes of antibiotics that have been thrown at it,” Manica Balasegaram

WELLNESS: Magic of Mushrooms – The risk of breast cancer is reduced to one third for those who eat mushroom at least thrice a week. Research shows that folks who consume at least 10 grams a day were 64% less likely to develop this form of cancer than others Protect ears through humming – This is particularly useful when approaching loud and noisy places. By pressing the lips together and humming softly, tenses the muscles in the ear and reducing exposure to external sounds that will harm your ear drum. In line with this, one should be wise while choosing the ear phones. The plug-in models are harmful as the music doesn’t leak out and bears full brunt on the ear. It is better to go for over the ear models. Belly needs berries – Which is the best relief for a troubled stomach? Strawberries. They not only eliminate the ulcers of the stomach, but also minimize the damage done by the mucous membrane. It is free of side effects as it is a fruit and is hence suggested by naturopaths for regular consumption. It is good to note that turmeric, dark green vegetables and yoghurt also pack similar benefits. Oil with carrot, saves life – For all the carrot curry lovers, this one is for you. Carrots contain the much needed anti-oxidant called beta-carotene. Just like all antioxidants, this one is good for health in general and heart in particular. When carrot is sliced and cooked in oil, the fat content dissolves up to 75% of the valuable beta-carotene. However, if one were to eat raw carrot, the body can absorb about 11% of this life saver

CHIROPRACTIC: The neurological basis of health Chiropractic physicians offer a completely different approach to health care. The standard approach is to categorize symptoms (diagnose) and then come up with drugs that suppress those symptoms. What you are left with is a condition that’s developing yet you’re not able to determine its progress because of medication that you are taking. For instance if you have an imbalance in your digestive system that leads to acid reflux and you take antacids what does that really fix except the “symptoms” of acid reflux. Suppressing digestive enzymes through taking antacids leads to other digestive problems including malnutrition. In our work with acid reflux we have found the problem can be anywhere within the digestive system. Once the weakness is found then it needs to be corrected. The chiropractic approach is to restore nervous system control to the area and follow it up with proper diet and targeted nutrition to maximize the healing process. When your acid reflux symptoms resolve under chiropractic care that’s because the underlying problem has been corrected not suppressed. When you symptoms resolve under drug therapy nothing has been corrected and you have in fact clipped the wire to the warning light that something is wrong. I think everybody realizes how stupid it would be if your oil light came on on your dashboard and you simply clipped the wire causing the light to go out. Eventually your motor will seize up and cost you thousands of dollars. When you do this with your body the consequences can be a lot more severe than just a loss of money. Since your nervous system controls and coordinates everything that takes place in your body it’s important that you maintain a pressure free nervous system. Just because you have no back pain doesn’t mean that the health problem that you’re struggling with doesn’t have a neurological basis. You might have a family member or friend who suffering with a health problem who could be helped by chiropractic. Tell others about chiropractic.

IN THE NEWS:. WALKING SLOWLY IS AN INDICATOR OF DEMENTIA BROUGHT ON BY BRAIN SHRINKAGE, SCIENTISTS DISCOVER FOR THE FIRST TIME Scientists have long believed that a slower walking pace in older people may be linked to dementia. There are 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, with numbers set to rise to over one million by 2025. This will soar to two million by 2051.  Now a team of researchers have identified the changes in the brain which explain why. They discovered that people who developed slowed walking show a shrinkage of their right hippocampus. This area of the brain, which is similar in shape to a seahorse, is primarily associated with memory and the ability to maintain posture.  The findings suggest dementia could be treated earlier if doctors regularly measure the walking speeds of older patients and watch for changes over time. That’s according to a 14-year study carried out by experts at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health.

WELLNESS: EXPLORING HEALTHY DRINKS Green Tea The Benefit: Helps reduce risk of osteoporosis, cancer, heart disease, and cavities. Green tea contains a rich concentration of flavonoids and polyphenols, natural antioxidants that may protect cells from carcinogens (cancer-causing substances) and inhibit tumor growth by helping to neutralize free radicals in the body. The tea’s antioxidants may also guard against heart disease by relaxing blood vessels, inhibiting the formation of blood clots that trigger heart attacks and strokes. Green tea also contains fluoride, which strengthens teeth; the flavonoids may build up bones as well, reducing the risk of osteoporosis and tooth decay. Mint Tea the Benefit: Eases cramps and helps ward off indigestion. “Mint is an antispasmodic, so it can relax muscles, which combats stiffness and aches,” says Susan Lark, MD, author of The Chemistry of Success (Bay Books, 1999). It also aids in digestion by promoting the movement of food through the digestive tract.

CHIROPRACTIC: WHAT’S THIS TINGLING IN MY LEG? When you think of low back pain, you may visualize a person half-bent over with their hand on the sore spot of their back. Since many of us have experienced low back pain during our lifetime, we can usually relate to a personal experience and recall how limited we were during the acute phase of our last LBP episode. However, when the symptoms associated with LBP are different, such as tingling or a shooting pain down one leg, it can be both confusing and worrisome – hence the content of this month’s article! Let’s look at the anatomy of the low back to better understand where these symptoms originate. In the front of the spine (or the part more inside of the body), we have the big vertebral bodies and shock absorbing disks that support about 80% of our weight. At the back of each vertebrae you’ll find the spinous and transverse processes that connect to the muscles and ligaments in the back to the spine. Between the vertebral body and these processes are the tiny boney pieces called the pedicles. The length of the pedicle partially determines the size of the holes where the nerves exit the spine. When the pedicles are short (commonly a genetic cause), the exiting nerves can be compressed due to the narrowed opening. This is called foraminal spinal stenosis. This compression usually occurs later in life when osteoarthritis and/or degenerative disk disease further crowds these “foramen” where the nerves exit the spine. Similarly, short pedicles can narrow the “central canal” where the spinal cord travels up and down the spine from the brain. Later in life, the combined effects of the narrow canal plus disk bulging, osteoarthritic spurs, and/or thickening or calcification of ligaments can add up to “central spinal stenosis.”  The symptoms associated with spinal stenosis (whether it’s foraminal or central) include difficulty walking due to a gradual increase in tingling, heavy, crampy, achy and/or sore feeling in one or both legs. The tingling in the legs associated with spinal stenosis is called “neurogenic claudication” and must be differentiated from “vascular claudication”, which feels similar but is caused from lack of blood flow to the leg(s) as opposed to nerve flow. At a younger age, tingling in the legs can be caused by either a bulging or herniated lumbar disk or it can be referred pain from a joint – usually a facet or sacroiliac joint. The main difference in symptoms between nerve vs. joint leg tingling symptoms is that nerve pinching from a deranged disk is located in a specific area in the leg such as the inside or outside of the foot. In other words, the tingling can be traced fairly specifically in the leg. Tingling from a joint is often described as a deep, “inside the leg,” generalized achy-tingling that can affect the whole leg and/or foot or it may stop at the knee, but it’s more difficult to describe by the patient as it’s less geographic or specific in its location.  Chiropractic management of all these conditions offers a non-invasive, effective form of non-surgical, non-drug care and is the recommended in LBP guidelines as an option when treating these conditions.

IN THE NEWS: Light-sensitive bacteria could save you during a heart attack  If scientists can use them in humans, that is. Heart attacks are frightening by themselves, but they’re made worse by the potential for lasting damage. Even a brief interruption to blood flow could permanently destroy vital tissue that keeps your heart beating as usual. However, there might be a way to mitigate or even prevent that damage. Scientists have discovered that a light-sensitive bacteria, synechococcus elongatus, can keep oxygen coming in the midst of a heart attack. Much like a plant, the bacteria both draws on photosynthesis for energy and turns both CO2 and water into oxygen. If you expose it to light soon after the attack, you can maintain oxygen levels and increase the heart’s blood-pumping ability after the attack is over. In lab rats, the results were dramatic. Oxygen levels were 25 times higher 10 minutes after the attack, and the hearts pumped 60 percent more blood 45 minutes after the attack. If you could use this as an emergency treatment in humans, it could mean the difference between outright heart failure and a reasonably healthy patient. The emphasis is on “if,” however. It’s easy to shine light into the small body of a rat; it’s tougher to do that with humans, who have thicker heart muscles (and are much larger, of course). There’s also the question of whether or not the bacteria are completely safe. Don’t count on this solution reaching hospitals soon, if at all. Nonetheless, the discovery is promising: it suggests that there’s a way to protect your heart against long-term harm even as doctors race to save you from the immediate threat.

WELLNESS: Broccoli Compound Lowers Risk of Obesity and Helps Treat Diabetes Sulforaphane, an organic sulfur found in broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables, may lower your risk of obesity and may be an ideal substitute or complement to metformin in the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Sulforaphane reduces glucose production and improves liver gene expression. Patients with dysregulated diabetes who received broccoli sprout extract in addition to metformin had 10 percent lower fasting blood glucose levels than the placebo group. Broccoli and broccoli sprouts also have potent anticancer activity courtesy of sulforaphane and other chemoprotective compounds. Steaming your broccoli spears for three to four minutes will optimize the sulforaphane content by eliminating epithiospecifier protein — a heat-sensitive sulfur-grabbing protein that inactivates sulforaphane — while still retaining the enzyme myrosinase, which converts glucoraphanin to sulforaphane. Without it, you cannot get any sulforaphane. The sulforaphane content can be further optimized by adding a myrosinase-containing food to it. Foods containing this important enzyme include: Mustard seed,,Daikon radishes,Wasabi, Arugula, Coleslaw.

Dr Keefe, Keefe Clinic, Natural Health Care, Tulsa Chiropractor, Diet, Pain,CONDITION OF THE WEEK: Sick and tired of being sick and tired My greatest joy is unraveling the code of disease in patients that I see. Health and disease follow certain patterns and steps. You simply follow certain laws that produce health or you break certain laws that produce disease. Those laws in a nutshell include proper diet, rest and relaxation (stress handling), positive mental and spiritual attitude, exercise and a pressure free nervous system. And to the degree you break these laws is the degree you lose your health. Health loss can happen slowly over a long period of time and by the time the symptoms appear you can be in bad shape. It is been said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”, it’s easier to stay well then to recover your health. A story from my files: I will call her Beth who came to me after a pretty serious car accident and she presented with epileptic seizures, daily headaches and she also had a history of digestive problems, ovary pain (she had already lost one ovary to surgery) and knee pain. The first two symptoms were directly related to her car accident and the other symptoms were chronic as she had had them for several years. Seizures can be frightening for anyone but she had a newborn baby she was not able to hold it without supervision. When she came to see me she was on the highest level of anti-seizure medication that she could take without it becoming lethal. It’s upsetting that we have a healthcare system that can’t see the big picture and attacks every symptom with potentially dangerous medications. In the car accident her head almost went through the windshield causing subluxations in her upper neck that caused the epilepsy and the headaches. It would seem that most first year doctors in training would be able to diagnose this and realize structural care was necessary, they didn’t. What was exciting is within a week or two of her beginning care the seizures disappeared along with her daily headaches. As we continued chiropractic and nutritional therapy her remaining ovary return to health, her digestive symptoms resolved and her knee pain disappear. When patients are willing to follow the laws of health we rarely have failure in restoring health. A wise man once said there are no incurable diseases just some incurable patients. Who do you know who has struggled with chronic health problem? Tell them about chiropractic.
