IN THE NEWS: Most Shocking Medical Mistakes, and How You Can Protect Yourself Each day, more than 40,000 harmful and/or lethal medical errors occur in the U.S., and preventable medical errors kill around 440,000 patients each year, making medical mistakes the third leading cause of death. One in 25 patients end up acquiring an infection while in the hospital, and 75,000 people per year die as a result. Since 1983, 132 newborns have been abducted from U.S. health care facilities, and hundreds of individuals have been caught posing as doctors when, in fact, they did not have a medical degree. Misdiagnoses may occur in 10 percent of all cases, and 30 million prescriptions are improperly dispensed each year in U.S. pharmacies. Two in 10,000 surgical patients come out of surgery with a surgical instrument left inside, and an estimated seven patients undergo surgery on the wrong body part each and every day. Just a few reasons to pick natural healthcare. A seven-year study showed that those patients whose primary physician was a chiropractic physician experienced: 85% less than pharmaceutical costs, 60% fewer outpatient surgeries, 60% fewer hospital admissions.

WELLNESS: HALF of America’s cancer deaths are driven by bad habits like eating processed meat, smoking, and excess body weight – but some are worse for men than women Dr Farhad Islami, MD, of the American Cancer Society, compiled a comprehensive list of known risk factors, and how risky each one is, based on previously-published data.  His team then applied those figures to actual cancer data from 2014 to roughly calculate how many cases and deaths were attributable to those lifestyle factors. The risk factors included in the analysis were:  cigarette smoking- secondhand smoke- excess body weight -alcohol intake -consumption of red and processed meat- low consumption of fruits and vegetables- dietary fiber and dietary minerals -physical inactivity -ultraviolet light- six cancer-associated infections, including herpes and HPV. They found that an estimated 42 percent of all cancer cases in America (659,640 of the 1,570,975 cancers diagnosed in 2014) were attributable to these modifiable risk factors. These factors were also the underlying cause of 45.1 percent of cancer deaths (265,150 of 587,521 deaths) that same year.  Staggeringly, they believe this is an understatement, since there are other risk factors that they couldn’t get the data for. There are also a number of cancers which are widely suspected to be caused by certain risk factors, but the links are not yet proven. NOTE: These are general recommendations or observations and so it’s important to individualize a program based on your genetic makeup. The body type system, that we follow, has specific dietary recommendations, exercise programs and recommendations on stress handling. Individualizing your preventive approach is important. Know your body type!

CONDITION OF THE WEEK: Winter colds and flu’s and sinus infections. Keeping your air passages healthy during the winter months can help prevent wintertime illness. The flu vaccine has not gotten the correct form of the flu bug for the past 10 years. Not only is the flu vaccine a danger to your health, given all the additives that it has, there has not been any valid study showing its effectiveness. Maintaining the health of your respiratory system is the key. Vitamins like A&D, C and maintaining a healthy humidity is your best defense against winter illness. Studies have shown keeping your neck and your head warm during the winter months also protect you from illness. As the weather turns colder and the heaters start working 24/7 then the indoor air will start drying out. Studies have shown that dry air has four main effects on the human body: Breathing dry air is a potential health hazard which can cause such respiratory ailments as asthma, bronchitis, sinusitis, and nosebleeds, or general dehydration since body fluids are depleted during respiration. Skin moisture evaporation can cause skin irritations and eye itching. Irritative effects, such as static electricity which causes mild shocks when metal is touched, are common when the air moisture is low. The “apparent temperature” of the air is lower than what the thermometer indicates, and the body “feels” colder. As your body fights the dry air you start to use up your vitamin A stores. This enhances the dry skin and sinus problems as well as weakens your immune system. It is important that you have a humidity gauge in each bedroom and a cool mist humidifier to combat the dry air. I recommend the ultrasonic humidifiers as they put the most water in the air. The healthy humidity should be between 40 and 60% below 40% starts drying out your body above 60% can cause mold overgrowth and your windows will steam up. You can control your families wintertime health by following these simple recommendations.

IN THE NEWS: 7 tips for reducing hunger if you’re on a diet When you’re looking to shed a few extra pounds, do you really need to fight through hunger pains to know you’re losing weight? Lauren Blake, a dietitian at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, agreed, and told Fox News that people shouldn’t restrict to the point that they’re always hungry. “There’s evidence that says when we restrict too much, it can be harmful to our metabolism, and it supports the loss of lean muscle mass,” she said.  1. Don’t skip breakfast. To regulate your hunger throughout the day, eat breakfast, whether that’s a bowl of cereal, some eggs, or even dinner leftovers, Planells said. 2. Keep healthy snacks on hand. To keep your blood sugar stable, avoid going four hours or more without eating, Planells said. Try snacks like yogurt, a handful of nuts, or even peanut butter and fruit to keep you full, he said. 3. Don’t drink your calories. Drinks deliver calories a lot faster than solids, Blake said. And since our guts sense fullness based on volume, not calories, drinks won’t leave us as satiated as solid foods, she explained. 4. Reach for whole, fiber-rich foods. Whole foods like fruits and vegetables are naturally lower in calories, and also have more water content and fiber that will keep you full longer, Blake said. Planells agreed: He noted that while the general American consumes about 10 grams of fiber per day, dietitians generally recommend Americans consume 25 to 30 grams per day. 5. Feature protein in your meals. Protein helps with satiety, Planells said. Try animal-based sources such as beef, chicken, pork, or fish, or plant-based sources like soy and quinoa, which have the added benefit of extra fiber, Planells said. 6. If you’re hungry late at night, drink a glass of water. Sometimes, we can mistake hunger for thirst. If you’re hungry late at night, try drinking a glass of water, Planells said. 7Do order an appetizer if you’re dining out. It might seem counterintuitive, but don’t skip the appetizer section of the menu if you’re dining out. Opt for a bone-based soup or a salad to help fill you up and reduce the risk of overeating during the main course, Blake said.

WELLNESS: How to Improve Your Failing Ability to Read Clearly as You Age, With the Help of Sunshine Nearsightedness is incredibly common, affecting an estimated 40 percent of Americans and up to 90 percent of young adults in Asian countries. A 2015 study estimated up to one-third of the world’s population may be nearsighted by the end of the decade — that’s 2.5 billion people. The following year, a meta-analysis of 145 studies predicted nearly half of the world will be nearsighted by the year 2050. One longstanding theory was that excessive reading at close distance (particularly in poor lighting) could lead to nearsightedness. Research refutes this theory, noting a clear lack of association between the two. Mounting research now shows the risk of nearsightedness is closely linked to time spent outdoors, both for children and adults. To protect your vision, you need regular exposure to bright sunlight. Nearsightedness (myopia), is a vision problem in which close objects appear clear but distant objects are blurry. This condition is thought to be caused by refractive errors in your eye. Refraction is the bending of light as it passes through one object to another. When light rays are refracted through your eye’s cornea and lens, they become focused on the retina, which then converts the light into messages sent through the optic nerve to your brain, which then interprets the messages into images. Refractive errors occur when the shape of your eye prevents light from focusing properly on your retina. This can occur by changes in the shape of your eye, such as the length of your eyeball or shape of your cornea, and/or changes in your lens due to aging. But what exactly is responsible for these changes? Two studies, the first published in 20077 and the second in 2008, found that rates of nearsightedness in children appeared to be closely linked to the amount of time spent outdoors. The greater the number of hours spent playing outside, the lower the risk of nearsightedness. In other words, keeping kids indoors and/or instilling a fear of sun exposure (for skin cancer reasons) may be at the heart of the world’s growing myopia problem. Remarkably, according to a British survey, 75 percent of children in the U.K. spend less time outdoors than prison inmates!

CHIROPRACTIC: Reduction of Labor and Delivery Time Due to Chiropractic Care The Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health published a case study on April 3, 2017, documenting the case of a woman who experienced a shorter and easier birth due to chiropractic care. This improvement was compared to her first pregnancy and delivery where she did not receive any chiropractic care. The study begins by noting that chiropractic care has been involved in the care of pregnant women since the early days of the profession over a century ago. In this study, a 28-year-old woman went to the chiropractor for evaluation and possible care. She sought chiropractic for a pain in her tailbone area as well as for wellness care. The woman believed that her pelvis had shifted due to her first pregnancy. She reported that after the delivery of her firstborn, she experienced pain and discomfort at her tailbone any time she sat on a hard surface. The woman reported that her first pregnancy went well, but that her delivery was very long and difficult. This was one of the factors in her desire to receive chiropractic care in anticipation of her second pregnancy. Her history revealed that between the ages of eight and sixteen, she was a competitive gymnast and was receiving chiropractic intermittently during that time. She also noted that she did not receive any chiropractic care during her first pregnancy. Prior to her first pregnancy, she did not have tailbone pain. She later attributed her long and difficult labor and delivery as being the cause of the tailbone pain. As with her first birth, the woman decided to have her second child at home. She was supervised by the same Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) that attended her first home birth. According to the midwife, the woman’s first labor and delivery time combined was 32 hours and 25 minutes. After chiropractic care, the midwife reported that the woman’s labor and delivery times for her second child was only two hours and 45 minutes combined. In their conclusion, the study authors note that chiropractic care during pregnancy is far more valuable than just symptomatic relief of musculoskeletal pains, and should be considered for the overall wellness and process of pregnancy. They stated, “This case report provides supporting evidence that subluxation centered chiropractic care on pregnant patients can have beneficial effects on the birthing process.”

How Spring Allergies May Raise Blood Sugars

Posted by | Mar 22, 2017 | , | 0 |

How Spring Allergies May Raise Blood Sugars

Spring has sprung and for about 1 in five people, that means facing spring allergy season. For those with type 2 diabetes, spring allergies may require watching out for things that could affect your blood sugar. Discover how spring allergies could lead to raised blood sugar levels and how to prevent it.

Spring allergies typically cause a runny nose, itching and sneezing. The first impulse is to seek the immediate relief of an OTC or prescription oral medication such as an antihistamine. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of American reports about 20 percent of people who use antihistamines become drowsy. If you nap and miss a meal, you could wake up with a low blood sugar. Opt for antihistamines with less of a sedative effect. Additionally, oral decongestants can constrict blood vessels in the body producing effects such as a rise in blood sugar, heightened blood pressure and increased urine retention. Talk to your doctor about side effects and better options that minimize the possibility of blood sugar fluctuations. Also, precaution is required when combining oral decongestants with certain types of antidepressants.

Those with a persistent stuffy nose may select an OTC or prescription nasal spray. Some of them contain steroids that stimulate the liver to produce more glucose and lead to elevated blood sugar levels. Alternatives include an OTC decongestant or antihistamine nasal spray. Discuss the options with your doctor to find the right one for your allergies that won’t cause blood sugar fluctuations. Use a blood glucose meter system to regularly check your blood sugar levels. Report any highs or lows to your doctor right away.

Nasal irrigation is an effective way to relieve congestion and the symptoms associated with spring allergies. Options include a saline nasal spray, Neti pots, nose bidets, bulb syringes, pulsatile irrigation systems and squirt bottles. These methods can help flush out mucus and irritants from the nasal passages to help you breathe more comfortably. Nasal strips are other drug-free alternatives that help open the nasal passages for better airflow.

Spring allergies often come with a cough and a dry, scratchy throat. Cough drops can relieve this uncomfortable feeling. Make sure to check the label and choose a sugar-free brand. Also watch for sugar content in medications, including cough syrups that could cause your blood sugar levels to soar.

woman sneezing with allergyFor stuffy noses and watery eyes associated with spring allergies, talk to your doctor about eye drops or nasal sprays that contain Cromolyn Sodium. This ingredient is a mast cell stabilizer that helps prevent the release of histamines during allergic reactions. These sprays should be started before the spring allergy season begins and continued until it ends. Modest improvements are made over several days with full benefits in up to one to two weeks.

Consider simple ways to beat spring allergies, so you can avoid the triggers that cause them. Shower after you spend time outdoors to remove the pollen from your body and hair. Close your car and home windows to keep pollen out. Filter allergens with an air filter or air conditioner. Get exercise, such as walking and hiking, on damp or rainy days when the pollen is more washed into the ground. Wear diabetic socks and rain boots that fit properly to keep your feet dry and warm.

Spring allergies can be uncomfortable and usually topical products are the most effective; they help without causing your blood sugars to rise. When in doubt, talk to your doctor and pharmacist about the best ways to relieve spring allergy symptoms without causing blood sugar fluctuations. Relief is available and it doesn’t have to cause your blood sugar levels to go through the roof.

WELLNESS: HEALTH BENEFITS OF HEMP Hemp and marijuana come from the same plant species, Cannabis sativa, but there are noted differences between the two plants. The US is the world’s largest consumer of hemp products, yet is the only industrialized country that also outlaws its production. Hemp grows like a weed and can be used in the production of food, personal care products, textiles, paper, and even plastic and construction materials. Hemp seeds are a valuable source of healthy fats, protein, and minerals.

CONDITION OF THE WEEK: SUBLUXATION spinal misalignments are called subluxation which means a misalignment less than the dislocation. A dislocation is a surgical condition whereas subluxations are detected and corrected by chiropractic physicians. You can carry slight misalignments in your spine and not even feel them. You won’t feel them because there are different types of nerves within the nervous system. Only sensory nerves would display some type of symptom like pain, numbness, tingling or other sensations. Motor nerves do not register pain. Motor nerves control muscles, organs and glands. So the longer the subluxation remains uncorrected the more dysfunction that will develop within the body. As these misalignments rub improperly with other segments this produces inflammatory changes that lead to degenerative arthritis that shows up years after the misalignment. Unfortunately you might not ever feel the development ubtil it is producing severe stress upon the nervous system. Then it’s more difficult to correct. So be it neck or back, arm or leg pain or organs and systems not working properly chiropractic can help restore normal nervous system function.

IN THE NEWS: Skip the anti-bacterial soap: regular suds work just as well Regular soap is just as effective as anti-bacterial soap at getting rid of germs through hand washing, a new study finds. This is hardly the first study to find no difference between the two types of soap, but it is the first to test regular and anti-bacterial soaps against 20 strains of bacteria in a lab, the researchers said. The investigators also tested the soaps on people’s dirty hands. Today, manufacturers add triclosan to an array of products, including toothpaste, shampoo, clothing, kitchenware, furniture and toys, with the goal of reducing or preventing bacterial contamination and growth, the researchers said. However, triclosan has been linked to several negative effects on health. Research has tied it to antibiotic resistance among germs, and allergies and hormone disruption in people. One study even found that long-term exposure to triclosan might cause cancer in mice.

WELLNESS: Controlling blood sugar may help prevent dementia, study finds Controlling blood-sugar levels may help prevent dementia, a study released on Tuesday showed, offering hope to patients with diabetes that keeping glucose levels in check might reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease and other types of cognitive impairments. Studying 350,000 patients with Type 2 diabetes, researchers at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden found that those with poor blood-sugar control had a 50% higher risk of being admitted to hospital than those with good control. Scientists have previously suggested a link between elevated blood-sugar levels and Alzheimer’s disease, but the researchers said this was the first large-scale study looking at how controlling the presence of glucose in the blood affected the risk of being diagnosed with dementia in the future.

The Claim: Some probiotics, healthy bacteria commonly known for improving digestion and boosting the immune system, also can kill pathogens, such as those that cause food poisoning and others that cause illnesses such as strep throat. The Verdict: A probiotic lozenge can reduce incidence of strep throat, according to published research by Italian scientists. A Harvard University scientist found another strain, which is added to some smoothies and raw juices, can kill a wide variety of harmful bacteria in lab tests. The use of probiotics to kill pathogens is a promising area but most of the work is still preliminary, scientists say. The ability of some bacteria to kill other bacteria isn’t new—foods such as yogurt, sauerkraut and pickled cucumbers are preserved thanks to a type of bacteria that produces lactic acid, which is lethal to harmful bacteria, says Maria L.

NOSEBLEEDS—-CAUSE AND CURE

photo-nosebleedDr. Keefe, Keefe Clinic. Tulsa Chiropractor, pain, natural health care.

Nosebleeds can be dramatic and frightening. Luckily, most nosebleeds are not serious and can be handled fairly easily. They are divided into two types, depending on whether the bleeding is coming from the anterior (front of the nose) or posterior (back of the nose). Anterior nosebleeds make up more than 90% of all nosebleeds.

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

 The bleeding usually comes from a blood vessel at the very front part of the nose. Anterior nosebleeds are usually easy to control, either by measures that can be performed at home or by a doctor. Posterior nosebleeds are much less common than anterior nosebleeds. They tend to occur more often in elderly people. The bleeding usually comes from an artery in the back part of the nose. These nosebleeds are more complicated and usually require admission to the hospital and management by an otolaryngologist (an ear, nose, and throat specialist).

Nosebleeds tend to occur during winter months and in dry, cold climates. They can occur at any age but are most common in children aged 2 to 10 years and adults aged 50 to 80 years.

Nosebleed Causes

Most commonly, trauma to the nose triggers a nosebleed. Trauma to the outside of the nose, such as a blow to the face, or trauma inside the nose, such as nose picking or repeated irritation from a cold, can cause a nosebleed.

Dr Keefe, Natural Health care, pain, Tulsa chiropractor,

Less commonly, an underlying disease process, such as an inability of the blood to clot, may contribute to the bleeding. Inability of the blood to clot is most often due to blood-thinning drugs such as warfarin(Coumadin) or aspirinLiver disease can also interfere with blood clotting. Abnormal blood vessels or cancers in the nose are rare causes of nosebleeds. High blood pressure may contribute to bleeding but is almost never the only reason for a nosebleed.

To stop a nosebleed:

Remain calm.

Sit up straight.

Lean your head forward. Tilting your head back will only cause you to swallow the blood.

Pinch the nostrils together with your thumb and index finger for 10 minutes. Have someone time you to make sure you do not release the nostrils any earlier.

Still dripping? Wad up a small piece of tissue or gauze, then stick it between your gums and upper lip in the area right under your nose. Leave it there for 5 to 10 minutes. The tissue puts pressure on the blood vessels that are sending blood to your nose. There are countless versions of this remedy—pouring vinegar, witch hazel, or lemon juice on the tissue; using a small square of brown paper from a bag sprinkled with salt; even placing a dime or a small, flat button under your upper lip instead of a tissue.

Apply an ice pack alongside the bleeding nostril. The cold narrows the blood vessels in the nose to slow the spurting.

Can you tell me how to stop frequent nosebleeds?

The power of prevention

 If you want to avoid nosebleeds, keep your mucous membranes moist by drinking eight 8oz glasses of water a day. You are well hydrated if your urine is pale, not dark.

Don’t overdo the AC. Air-conditioning dries out the air, leaving you more prone to nosebleeds.

In winter, add moisture indoors by running a humidifier.

Spritz your nostrils liberally with a saline nasal spray.

Watch your aspirin intake. Aspirin can interfere with blood clotting, and of course that’s not a good thing if you get frequent nosebleeds.

If you often have trouble with nosebleeds, take 1,000 to 1,200 milligrams of vitamin C every day to help prevent them. Vitamin C helps strengthen capillary walls and is also a vital component of collagen, a substance that gives your nostrils a moist, protective lining. Along with vitamin C, take 1000 milligrams daily of a bioflavonoid supplement such as grape-seed extract, pine-bark extract, pycnogenol, or proanthocyanins. Flavonoids are known to heal capillaries.

Cayenne pepper can help to prevent frequent nosebleeds. The suggested dose is 600 mg a day.

Finally, make sure you’re eating enough broccoli and leafy greens, which contain vitamin K, the clotting vitamin. If you continue to have frequent nosebleeds on this regimen, consider adding a vitamin K supplement, 100 mcg per day. (If you are taking Coumadin or another blood thinner, you need to avoid the synthetic form of vitamin K (MK-4). Instead, talk to your doctor about taking a low dose of K2 (MK-7), approximately 45 mcg per day) to stop or prevent frequent nosebleeds.

IN THE NEWS: WHEN IS A HEALTH FOOD NOT A HEALTH FOOD Most commercial yogurts are chock-full of sugar, processed fructose (high fructose corn syrup), and/or artificial sweeteners and flavors, which nourish disease causing microbes in your gut. Healthy microbes are not only important for optimal digestion of food and absorption of nutrients, these bacteria also help your body produce vitamins, absorb minerals, and even aid in the elimination of toxins. Recent research suggests yogurt containing Lactobacillus rhamenosus can help protect children and pregnant women against heavy metal poisoning. Your absolute best bet, when it comes to yogurt, is to make your own using a starter culture and raw, organic grass fed milk. However, there are high-quality USDA 100% organic yogurts on the market.

WELLNESS: BLACK SALVE AND BREAST CANCER The use of black salve is sometimes referred to as botanical surgery because of this extraordinary ability to purge solid tumors and skin cancers from the body. Black salve is a thick paste which is made from various Native American herbs, with the main herbal component being bloodroot. The salve is used by applying a small amount over the area of diagnosed or suspected malignancy, which then triggers an immune system response to the neoplastic (cancerous) tissue as the cancer finally is recognized by the immune system. Although it is possible that healthy tissue may also become reddened and irritated when the black salve is applied, it is only cancerous tissue that will form an eschar (piece of dead tissue that is cast off from the surface of the skin). Once recognized, the immune system forces the body to expel the tumor by bringing it to the surface until this completely emerges and detaches itself from the skin (this is the eschar).

CONDITION OF THE WEEK: COLDS AND FLUES since research studies have shown the flu shot to be mostly ineffective and dangerous what is one to do to prevent colds and flues? Regular chiropractic adjustments increase a person’s immunity by 200% so that should be step one. When the heaters come on in the wintertime and the air dries out so does your mucous membranes in your sinuses and lungs. Keeping the humidity above 40% step two. Nutrients like A&D and vitamin C will improve immunity. Exercise, sleep and detoxification rounds out the perfect defense against colds and flues. As Smokey the Bear has said: only you can prevent colds and flues, take care of yourself this winter.

ALLERGIES – COVER-UP OR CURE?

allergy_mix

TO ORDER CALL 918-663-1111

Many Americans, at different seasons of the year, are plagued by symptoms of runny noses, watery eyes, congested glands, persistent coughs, and recurring upper respiratory infections, all due to allergic reactions.   Allergies can be simply defined as the body’s inappropriate response to certain substances, usually proteins (antigens).  These proteins can be ragweed, grass pollens, any plant substance found in the air, a particular food or a chemical that is ingested or inhaled.  These antigens can cause immune system responses, classically the congested, runny noses, watery eyes, congested sinuses and lungs; but allergic responses can also include depression, asthma, joint pain, diarrhea, constipation, and many other symptoms.

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

CLICK TO ORDER

We call these responses inappropriate because everyone will breathe in the ragweed or grass pollen, or eat certain foods, but only a certain percentage of the population will have reactions to these as antigens.  These reactions thus represent an inappropriate response to common substances.  In other words, the body interprets these common substances as invading organisms, and the immune system mounts a response as if it was being attacked.  However, the particular antigens usually do not cause any tissue damage under normal circumstances.  In fact, the damages (or symptoms that are produced within the body) are usually due to the body’s inappropriate immune system response to the substance.

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

CLICK TO ORDER

It is this inappropriate response that needs to be treated – and not just the symptoms of the allergies.  The standard medical approach to allergies is to suppress the symptoms with dangerous antihistamines, cortisone preparations, and other medications that are designed only to repress the body’s responses.  This method is one that I term a “COVER-UP” method.  It does not help a patient with his or her allergies; it only artificially  covers up the symptoms of these allergies.  The question that needs to be asked is, “Why do these people have inappropriate allergy responses?”

The answer to this is:  the nervous system has an imbalance in the way it responds to certain proteins or other substances, and it is that response that must be corrected, not suppressed.
Below listed is the protocol which we have developed through trial and error over the years and with which we are currently  enjoying great success  at Keefe Clinic.

First of all, we understand that it is not the ragweed or any other antigen that is the problem, but it is the body’s response to it that is the problem.  Therefore, we look to the nervous system as the root cause, because the imbalance is within the nervous system, which then causes the abnormal reaction.

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

1) The first area of treatment is that of homeopathy.  Homeopathy is a system based on the principle of “like cures like”.  In the case of the allergies, the substance that would be used would be the antigen (the pollen, ragweed, food, etc) that produces the improper symptoms.  This antigen is diluted several times to form a product that will help the body adjust its inappropriate reaction to become an appropriate reaction.  By giving this antigen in a diluted fashion, and by diluting it enough that it will not produce an allergy reaction by itself, a slight response is produced that will gradually desensitize the body to the offending substance.

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

CLICK TO ORDER

For instance, if you have an allergy to ragweed pollen, when you breathe it in, your immune system begins to fight the ragweed as if it was an invading bacteria or virus.  Thus, we would take ragweed pollen and dilute it down to a level where it will not cause that same immune response – indeed, at this level, it has been found that it will produce an opposite response.  In other words, it will re-calibrate the body in such a way that it will not react to this pollen as a foreign invader.  Over a period of time, by ingesting diluted antigens, the body will build up a resistance to this inappropriate response (allergic reaction). This strengthening of the body can lead to a permanent cure for this allergy.  The homeopathic treatment program is similar to the allergy injection program practiced in the United States.

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

CLICK TO ORDER

In fact, when an allergist gives an injection of diluted pollens, he is practicing a crude form of homeopathy.  We say “crude” because the homeopathic physicians developed this technique in Europe over a hundred years ago, and they used very precise dilutions.  We are very happy to be able to offer homeopathic Allergy Mixes in our office which can be customized to your particular allergies- especially because we feel this is quite superior to the often painful injection process used by medical allergists.

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

Allergy mixes are liquids given by mouth in small doses on a regular basis – easily administered even to very small children.  These custom-made mixes represent the antigens (environmental, in foods, and chemicals) to which you might be sensitive.  These particular products sometimes require changing in potency in order to effect a permanent cure.  Most people start out using a 6x potency, and most will develop a permanent cure with that potency alone.  But some patients require the changing of potencies as they progress through the treatment program.  The potency can go from a 6x dilution all the way up to a 500x dilution, or higher,  before some are desensitized totally to a particular antigen.  Thus it is essential that a patient keep us informed on how he or she is responding to the treatment program in order for the allergy mix to be adjusted as needed.

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

2) The next approach in allergy work that we use is re-establishing a normal function of the nervous system in regard to these antigens.  For this we utilize Chiropractic care.  Chiropractic, of course, helps relieve nerve pressure and establishes normal nerve functioning within the body. Vertebra can lose their normal position and crowd the nerve root causing disruption of the normal control over the body.  Many disease processes have their start from subluxation complexes that were neglected because there was no pain and the person did not have his or her spine checked for problems.  Chiropractic adjustments are safe and effective for many of the most common health problems that we suffer.

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

3) It has also been found that particular antigens will disrupt certain electrical-type circuits within the body. In acupuncture, these circuits are called meridians.  Several points which show less resistance to electrical current are found along the meridians, and these points can be mapped out by use of electronic machines that register skin resistance in the body.  It has been found that there are twelve meridians that are found on both sides of the body, as well as two meridians that are found along the center of the body, both in the front and in the back.  These meridians are associated with certain functions, organs, muscles and parts of the body.  Each meridian has a particular name, e.g., the kidney meridian (associated with certain parts of the body, including the kidneys).  There is a liver meridian, a heart meridian, etc.  These meridians are electrical circuits that tend to be associated with these key organs and muscles.  It is found that certain antigens will disrupt these electrical circuits in the body and produce the allergy response.  Through the acupuncture-allergy technique, we determine which circuits are disrupted by a particular antigen, and then by a proper stimulation of the key points within the meridian, as a particular antigen is being held or placed on the body, we cause the nervous system to re-adjust how it responds to that antigen.  In a few cases, this can produce almost instantaneous reversal of the allergy response in the body.

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

CLICK TO ORDER

This is a new technique, and promises to be a very effective way of re-programming the nervous system in its inappropriate response to antigens.  This treatment program can vary as to number of treatments required to produce a permanent cure, but a number of patients will respond within 1-6 treatments when we are dealing with a particular antigen.  Depending on the number of antigens with which we have to deal, we can schedule allergy acupuncture treatment sessions for each substance, as we determine the number of sessions we will have to do to develop a long-term cure for your allergies.

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

4) Nutritional therapy is another important part of an over-all program. Weak organs are involved in allowing the body to have an allergic reaction.  Giving nutritional support to these weak organs will help a patient recover his health, and allow him to end the cycle of the chronic allergy sufferer who normally has episode after episode of allergy symptoms.  Through the use of properly selected products, the allergic system can be returned to normal function.  Remember:   allergies do not represent a normally functioning body.  Proper nutrition can be an effective tool in returning the body back to health in most health care problems.

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

It is important to realize that the treatments I have outlined here are not done for the purpose of suppressing symptoms; they are not done to cover up your body’s response to the antigens.  They are done to re-adjust the body’s reaction to antigens back to normal.  These techniques are designed to develop a  CURE.

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

Not all allergies will respond as quickly in some patients as they do in others.  During the treatment program, symptom relief can be an important part of the overall treatment along with the corrective process. However, instead of utilizing strong, potent, and dangerous drugs to help relieve symptoms, we offer natural, herbal preparations and other natural products that can produce the same symptomatic relief without the negative drug effect that is seen in most over-the-counter and prescription medications used for allergies.  Thus, we do not overlook that need for symptom relief; however,  our goal is to correct the allergic response, not just to suppress it.

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

We believe that each person is unique and that each patient’s program must be individualized. Not all the techniques we have spelled out will be used with each patient. After a complete exam and history is taken, we will work out a treatment program that will be specifically designed for each patient’s particular needs.

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

CONDITION OF THE WEEK: ALLERGIES can be annoying this time of year but how you treat them can make a big difference. Antihistamines might mask the symptoms of allergies but they don’t correct allergies. Side effects like clumsiness, convulsions, drowsiness, fast heartbeat, hallucinations, nausea and problems sleeping are just a few of the negative effects from antihistamines. The side effects from our allergy mix is less problems with allergies. By introducing dilute pollens that you’re allergic to the body reprograms the immune system not to react. Building the body’s immune system up and desensitizing your body to the pollens are the most effective way of addressing allergies long-term. It’s important that you continue on your allergy mix even after allergy season to develop a permanent immunity. It’s possible at one point you’ll not need to take the mix again because you will be permanently healed from your allergies.

IN THE NEWS: STUDY AFTER STUDY SHOWS THE FLU SHOT IS A SCAM A study published in the October 2008 issue of the Archives of Pediatric; Adolescent Medicine found that vaccinating young children against the flu had no impact on flu-related hospitalizations or doctor visits during two recent flu seasons. The researchers concluded that “significant influenza vaccine effectiveness could not be demonstrated for any season, age, or setting” examined. A 2008 study published in the Lancet found that influenza vaccination was NOT associated with a reduced risk of pneumonia in older people. This also supports an earlier study, published in The New England Journal of Medicine. Research published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine also confirms that there has been no decrease in deaths from influenza and pneumonia in the elderly, despite the fact that vaccination coverage among the elderly has increased from 15 percent in 1980 to 65 percent now. In 2007, researchers with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and the National Institutes of Health published this conclusion in the Lancet Infectious Diseases: A large-scale, systematic review of 51 studies, published in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews in 2006, found no evidence that the flu vaccine is any more effective than a placebo in children under 2. The studies involved 260,000 children, age 6 to 23 months.

CALCIUM FACTS “Don’t count on milk to beat osteoporosis.

Navigating through lies, politics and profit in

an attempt to find better health.

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

“Don’t count on milk to beat osteoporosis.
In a Harvard study of 78,000 nurses, drinking three or more glasses of milk per day did not reduce fractures at all. An Australian study showed the same thing.

Nearly 78,000 nurses participated in the 12-year milk and bone fracture study. MILK, DIETARY CALCIUM AND BONE FRACTURES The study found “no significant association” between teenage milk consumption and the risk of adult fractures. Data from the study indicate that frequent milk consumption and higher dietary calcium intakes in middle aged women do not provide protection against hip or forearm fractures. A SHOCKING AND UNEXPECTED REVELATION

a harvardDr. Keefe, Keefe Clinic. Tulsa Chiropractor, pain, natural health care.In the Harvard study, women consuming greater amounts of calcium from dairy foods had significantly INCREASED risks of hip fractures, while no increase in fracture risk was observed for the same levels of calcium from non-dairy sources.

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

Consumption of dairy products, particularly at age 20 years, was associated with an increased risk of hip fracture in old age. (“Case-Control Study of Risk Factors for Hip Fractures in the Elderly”. American Journal of Epidemiology. Vol. 139, No. 5, 1994).

Dr Keefe, Keefe Clinic, Natural Health Care, Tulsa Chiropractor, Diet, Pain,

And the 12 year long Harvard Nurses’ Health Study found that those who consumed the most calcium from dairy foods broke more bones than those who rarely drank milk. This is a broad study based on 77,761 women aged 34 through 59 years of age.

These data do not support the hypothesis that higher consumption of milk or other food sources of calcium by adult women protects against hip or forearm fractures.” (Source: Feskanich D, Willett WC, Stampfer MJ, Colditz GA. Milk, dietary calcium, and bone fractures in women: a 12-year prospective study. American Journal of Public Health. 1997).

Dr Keefe, Keefe Clinic, Natural Health Care, Tulsa Chiropractor, Diet, Pain,Amy Lanou Ph.D., nutrition director for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine in Washington, D.C., who states that: “The countries with the highest rates of osteoporosis are the ones where people drink the most milk and have the most calcium in their diets. The connection between calcium consumption and bone health is actually very weak, and the connection between dairy consumption and bone health is almost nonexistent.”

The best milk substitutes

A favorite milk substitute is unsweetened almond milk, not only because it is alkalizing (as almonds are), but also because it’s delicious and tastes very similar to milk. You can even cook with it!

If almond milk is hard to get, you can also try rice or soy milk

THERE is not a shred of evidence that upping calcium intake above a relatively low threshold, improves bone health or reduces the risk of bone fractures.

 

British-Medical-JournalDr. Keefe, Keefe Clinic. Tulsa Chiropractor, pain, natural health care.A study just published in the prestigious British Medical Journal hammers another nail into the coffin of the eat-more-calcium-for-stronger-bones myth, with the finding that women with the highest intake of calcium had a 19% higher risk of experiencing a hip fracture than those whose calcium intake was modest but adequate.

This study’s strengths included: the large number of study subjects (over 60 000 Swedish women); the duration of follow-up (19 years); the fact that it was prospective (i.e. the participants were recruited before any of them had suffered a fracture) and calcium intake was repeatedly measured over the follow-up period, eliminating the problem of ‘recall bias’ -the tendency of people who have already suffered a disease, to overestimate their past exposure to risk factors for it – that plagues retrospective studies; and the statistical adjustment for various other factors that affect bone health and fracture risk, such as smoking, physical activity level, and whether the women had had children (which decreases fracture risk).

Dr. Keefe, Keefe Clinic. Tulsa Chiropractor, pain, natural health care.The researchers analyzed the participants’ diet records, and divided them into 5 groups, from lowest to highest calcium intake. They found that women with the lowest calcium intake from foods and supplements (less than 750 mg per day) had an 18% higher risk of suffering any type of fracture, and a 29% greater risk of hip fracture, than women who consumed 882-996 mg of calcium per day (an amount easily achieved on an entirely plant-based diet, high in green leafy vegetables, legumes, nuts and seeds).

However, women with the highest calcium intake (more than 1137 mg per day) had a 19% higher risk of suffering a hip fracture than those in the 882-996 mg/day group. Given that the Australian government now recommends a daily intake of 1300 mg of calcium for individuals over 50, and many older women are taking more than 1000 mg per day of calcium from supplements, above and beyond what they obtain through their diet, the findings from this carefully-conducted study must give serious pause for thought.

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

According to Carolyn Dean, a medical and naturopathic doctor:

“I’ve heard statistics like a 700 percent rise in osteoporosis in a 10-year period, even while taking all this calcium. The myth that’s been created about calcium is that we need twice as much calcium as we do magnesium. Most of the supplements reflect this. We’ve got a situation where people are taking 1,200 to 1,500 milligrams of calcium and maybe a few hundred milligrams of magnesium.

The 2:1 ratio—that was a mistake; a mistaken translation from French researcher Jean Durlach, who said never ever go beyond two parts calcium to one part magnesium in your food, water, or supplement intake combined.”

Twelve green leafy vegetables were analyzed for their mineral contents. The following concentration ranges (in mg g−1 dry weight) were obtained for the elements determined: sodium, 0·11–0·76; potassium, 0·36–1·07; calcium, 0·24–0·73; phosphorus, 0·18–0·39; magnesium, 0·66–1·76; manganese, 0·03–0·12; iron, 0·35–0·56; zinc, 0·04–0·12.

Mothers your children deserve chiropractic care

Dr Keefe, Keefe Clinic, Natural Health Care, Tulsa Chiropractor, Diet, Pain, Over the years I’ve experience the power chiropractic in improving the health of both my own children and the children I’ve had the privilege to serve. We live in an ever increasingly dangerous healthcare system. The common use of toxic and dangerous drugs and the overuse and misuse of medication like antibiotics are having a serious deficit effect on the health of our kids. Today more and more kids go to school drugged by design. And it seems to be only getting worse.

Dr Keefe, Keefe Clinic, Natural Health Care, Tulsa Chiropractor, Diet, Pain,There is a simple glaring problem with this approach, drugs don’t produce health. Drugs might modify symptoms, at a cost, but outside of crisis care their effects are temporary and their side effects can be long-term. Probably one of the drugs that have been abused the most is antibiotics. In a vast number of cases where antibiotics are prescribed, they are prescribed in violation of all the latest research concerning the appropriate use of antibiotics. Research shows that antibiotics don’t work for colds or flu’s, most conditions where there’s a cough, most bronchitis or runny noses and most ear infections. Probably 70 to 80% of the time when these symptoms are presented the pediatrician or other doctor writes a prescription for antibiotics even though the doctor knows they are inappropriate. Why? When the doctor is interrogated afterwards they usually blame the parent for demanding it. The sad truth is most parents just want the appropriate care and since the medical doctor doesn’t have any more training in how to address these issues without drugs (and drugs don’t help conditions like these) then they feel impotent if they don’t write some kind of prescription. Buyer beware!

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

The sad fact is that pharmaceutical companies have taken over the healthcare system and if you’re not an informed consumer then you will line the pockets of the pharmaceutical companies and damage your kid’s own health. Disease is not a drug deficiency, diseases is a deficiency within the body. Chiropractic physicians have the training to reestablish the body’s own communication systems necessary to keep the system health. Chiropractic physicians have the training in diet, allergies, detox protocols and nutritional therapies to reestablish normal function of the systems of the body including the immune system. Antibiotics weaken the immune system. Even when antibiotics are needed to kill an aggressive bacterial infection their side effects can leave the person’s immune system weaker and actually more prone to reoccurring infections. Chiropractic physicians have the training to help reverse the negative effects of antibiotics and to reestablish a stronger immune system.

Dr Keefe, Natural Health care, pain, Tulsa chiropractor,

When it comes to preventing disease drugs are the worst approach you could take. Disease prevention is a lifestyle, diet and chiropractic centered strategy. Since science has proven overwhelmingly that disease is related to lifestyle and environment then that’s where you need to work if you want to improve your child’s health.

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

Unfortunately the food industry is not your friend. Virtually all the foods marketed to kids will wreak havoc with their health. Most of these foods are extremely high in refined carbohydrates which depress your child’s immune system and develop the chemistry prone to disease. By simply feeding your kids natural foods: eggs, vegetables, fruits, meat, whole grains in moderation, seeds, nuts and some dairy in moderation you can establish a chemistry of health in your child. Junk food like most cereals, candies, refined grains in most noodles, pizzas, white bread, crackers etc. leads to a chemistry that is prone to disease. The fact that a lot of kids go through periods of time of “apparent health” is a miracle of the creation we call our bodies.

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

One of the most important things you can do is make sure your kids drink enough clean water and stay away from pops, fruit juices and fake fruit drinks and fructose that come from highly refined corn syrup. Stevia is a great sugar substitute and can be used in a number of things to give it a sweet taste without disrupting your kids’ blood sugar handling system. Marked deviations in normal blood sugar levels will weaken the immune system and affect your kid’s moods. A lot of kids suffer from focus issues at school, hyperactivity or moodiness simply because they don’t get enough quality proteins to make neurotransmitters, because of the high sugar content of their diet they can’t maintain normal blood sugar levels which can lead to depression and moodiness as the sugar drops.  Also their intestinal system suffers due to the amount of junk food they consume which disrupts the normal serotonin levels that the gut produces which in turn affects moods. Whole foods prevent all of these issues.

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

Chiropractic adjustments can have a dramatic effect on how the nervous system expresses emotions and that’s why chiropractic care has helped so many kids whose schoolwork suffers from hyperactivity and attention deficit syndrome.

gain-muscle, Dr Keefe,  Natural Health care, pain, Tulsa chiropractor,

Studies show that chiropractic patients receiving regular chiropractic care have a much stronger immune system than the average public. And so if your child is not receiving chiropractic care you’re not giving them the best chance to express their body’s potential when it comes to health as well as performance both physically and mentally.

Dr Keefe, Natural Health care, pain, Tulsa chiropractor,

A chiropractic physician will not compromise your child’s health by recommending dangerous and toxic substances. Health is a natural expression of life within the body. The chiropractic adjustment enhances the expression of life to all the cells of the body. Nutritional therapy, detoxification, homeopathic allergy treatments, homeopathic emotional treatment all work together to maximize your child’s health.

SIX DAY CLEANSING DIET

 

This is your six-day special food program. For best results it must be followed exactly as written.

When an automobile is full of carbon, it has no pep.  It is clogged up.  You may put in the very best gas and oil, but the speed is not there.  The sensible and logical thing to do is to take the car to a mechanic and have the carbon cleaned out.  After that is done, what happens?  The car seems like new. There is plenty of power.

Your body is comparable to the car.  When the cells, of which you have many millions, are clogged up with ACID—SUGAR—MUCUS—PUS—etc-, you have no pep, your appetite is poor, you do not sleep well, your complexion is-bad, your eyes are dull, you suffer from aches and pains you are nervous and irritable, you feel indifferent—everything seems wrong.  Life is not so much fun as it once was; in fact, you are really ill.

The sensible and logical thing to do is to CLEAN OUT, not just your bowels, but also the cells.  Purge these cells—get all this accumulated toxic material out.  But how?

Well, that’s easy.  OBSERVE THIS SPECIAL FOOD PROGRAM.  It does it every time!  For six short days you will be on a FEAST—not a fast.  You will be filling your body with Nature’s life-giving foods—fruits and vegetables that contain all those precious vitamins and minerals.  When a sufficient amount of these live substances reaches the cells of your body, there will be a flushing and a cleansing such as you have never experienced before.  You will eliminate toxic material that has been with you for years—toxic material that has robbed you of your vitality.  When this gets all out, you will be like the car that has been cleaned of the carbon.  You will have plenty of energy—your complexion will undergo a marvelous transformation—you will feel like a baby—aches and pains will disappear -­your nerves will be at ease and you will feel so good that life will be a joy.

That is what this SPECIAL 6-DAY PROGRAM will do.  Follow directions carefully. When you start this program—STICK TO IT! Don’t try it 1 day and then quit! After this program, you are to ALWAYS have some fresh raw fruit or vegetables with every meal!

BREAKFAST FOR EACH OF THE SIX DAYS

Natural health care can help you

Dr Keefe,  Natural Health care, pain Tulsa chiropractor,

Studies show more people are searching for natural solutions for their health. In 1993 the American Medical Association did a survey of health habits of Americans and found that more Americans visited doctors that practiced natural healthcare then doctors that practiced drug therapy and surgery.

There are many reasons for this shift in healthcare. Some people are concerned about the side effects that drugs have, (2000 deaths per week and over 1 million injuries per year), some people have a sense of body ecology and don’t want to put any artificial substances within their body. Some people have discovered drugs mainly cover-up symptoms and never get to the root of their problem, and are more concerned with maximizing their health than just making some symptoms disappear.

INDOOR AIR POLLUTION

Air pollution contributes to lung disease, including respiratory tract infections, asthma, and lung cancer. Lung disease claims close to 335,000 lives in America every year and is the third leading cause of death in the United States. Over the last decade, the death rate for lung disease has risen faster than for almost any other major disease.

Poor indoor air quality can cause or contribute to the development of chronic respiratory diseases such as asthma and hypersensitivity pneumonitis. In addition, it can cause headaches, dry eyes, nasal congestion, nausea and fatigue. People who already have respiratory diseases are at greater risk.

Biological pollutants, including molds, bacteria, viruses, pollen, dust mites, and animal dander promote poor indoor air quality and may be a major cause of days lost from work and school. In office buildings, heating, cooling, and ventilation systems are frequent sources of biological substances that are inhaled, leading to breathing problems.

Environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) also called “secondhand smoke,” a major indoor air pollutant, contains about 4,000 chemicals, including 200 known poisons, such as formaldehyde and carbon monoxide, as well as 43 carcinogens.

ETS causes an estimated 3,000 lung cancer deaths and 35,000 to 60,000 heart disease deaths in non-smokers, as well as 150,000 to 300,000 cases of lower respiratory tract infections in children under 18 months of age each year.

Formaldehyde is a common chemical, found primarily in adhesive or bonding agents for many materials found in households and offices, including carpets, upholstery, particle board, and plywood paneling. The release of formaldehyde into the air may cause health problems, such as coughing; eye, nose, and throat irritation; skin rashes, headaches, and dizziness.

Household cleaning agents, personal care products, pesticides, paints, hobby products, and solvents may be sources of hundreds of potentially harmful chemicals. Such components in many household and personal care products can cause dizziness, nausea, allergic reactions, eye/skin/respiratory tract irritation, and cancer.

Indoor air pollution is a disease of  modern architecture. Soaring energy costs, increased conservation efforts and new construction technologies have each contributed to why and how we seal outside air out and inside air in, with deadly precision. Most homes are 4 to 5 times more polluted  than the air outside, even in areas where factories are all around. Accord ing to      the EPA, indoor air pollution is considered one of America’s #1 environmental health concerns.

When it comes to the air that we breathe, we would be safer in the wilderness.

PUT YOUR ANTIBIOTIC SOAP AWAY

NIXALL IS A NATURAL ANTIBIOTIC

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

Anolyte Water (Nixall) is produced by electrolyzing salt water in the anode chamber of an electrolytic cell.

 Efficacy of Anolyte

Efficacy (the capacity to produce an effect) studies performed with “near neutral” anolyte have shown that anolyte is up to 100 times more efficient against bacteria than bleach and testing performed by the U.S. Marine Corps confirmed that anthrax spores were killed immediately upon contact with anolyte.

Dr. Keefe, Natural Health care, pain, Tulsa chiropractor, neck pain, headache,

Anolyte has been proven effective against a broad range of microorganisms, including bacteria, fungi, mycobacterium, viruses, yeasts, molds and spores. The method of killing unwanted microorganisms is accomplished through the physical destruction of the cell structure, bursting the cell’s membrane and disrupting the cell’s DNA. This type of lethal cell action does not allow the microorganisms to become “adaptive” to anolyte, forming resistant strains which can survive treatment. The same cannot be said for bleach and other traditional chemical biocides

 Dr. Keefe, Natural Health care, pain, Tulsa chiropractor, neck pain, headache,

Antibiotic soaps  increase the risk

for antibiotic resistant organisms

called superbugs.

Nixall  is safe anolytic water

USES:

At 100 ppm (OCT) you can dilute 10 parts water and 1 part Nixall to use. At 200 ppm (Cleanser) dilute 50/50 then 10 to 1. Can be used without diluting. It’s perfect  for wound healing, minor cuts, burns, abrasions, irritation. Can be used for general disinfecting around the house and safe enough to spray in the eyes or down your throat with suspected bacterial infection. Can be used on all types of surfaces and actually helps oxygenate plants.

On the basis of the antimicrobial activity and the lack of animal toxicity, it is predicted that stabilized HOCl has potential pharmaceutical applications in the control of soft tissue infection.   journal of  burns and wounds  v.6; 2007

Hypochlorous Acid Water – Kills Hospital Bacteria Artificial Organs 2004 Jun:28 (6):590-2 Vorobjeva NV, Vorobjeva LI, Khodjaev EY.

The study is designed to investigate bactericidal actions of electrolyzed oxidizing water on hospital infections. Ten (10) of the most common opportunistic pathogens are used for this study. Cultures are inoculated in 4.5 mL of electrolyzed oxidizing (EO) water or 4.5 mL of sterile deionized water (control), and incubated for 0, 0.5, and 5 min at room temperature. At the exposure time of 30 seconds the EO water completely inactivates all of the bacterial strains, with the exception of vegetative cells and spores of bacilli which need 5 min to be killed.

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

Composition of Anolyte
Anolyte (Nixall) produced from 7 g/l sodium chloride solution contains 99.3% water, with the remaining 0.7% of the solution being sodium chloride salt.

Anolyte generated at a near neutral pH contains mostly hypochlorous acid (92%). Anolyte achieves its efficacy against unwanted microorganisms with as little .01% hypochlorous acid.

Electro Activation could be one of
the most important discoveries in years

Dr. V Turovetsky Ph. D., University of Moscow, Department of Biophysics published a study 2002 on Cell Survivability and Intracellular Ph, in his report he gives an explanation of the properties of Anolyte. In his report he stated that the immune system, in particular Macrophage, which are white blood cells, showed increase activity after exposure to the Anolyte solution. This increased immune response was a result of the Anolyte solutions ability to change intracellular physiology, the changes included accelerated hydration, increased Ph, decreased cell membrane damage and an increase in intracellular oxidative redox potential ORP.

This is important to good health!

Here are the benefits of Activated water for the human body:

  • Improves digestion

Effects of a low concentration hypochlorous Acid nasal irrigation solution on bacteria, fungi, and virus.

Kim HJ, Lee JG, Kang JW, Cho HJ, Kim HS, Byeon HK, Yoon JH.
Source: Department of Medicine Graduate School, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Abstract OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS:

Saline irrigation would be more effective for chronic sinusitis patients if it had bactericidal effects. Low concentrations of hypochlorous acid (active ingredant in anolyte water) may be used as a nasal irrigation solution.

First, we developed a 0.85% NaCl solution by adding NaCl to tap water (pH 7.0 and 8.4) and measuring the concentration of free chlorine and hypochlorous acid after giving the solution a short electrical impulse of 20 seconds. Then we investigated whether the derived hypochlorous acid had a toxic effect on human primary nasal epithelial cells, if and what effect it had on the expression of mucin genes, and, finally, if it had bactericidal, fungicidal, or virucidal effects.
STUDY DESIGN: In vitro biochemical experiment.

Dr. Keefe, Keefe Clinic. Tulsa Chiropractor, pain, natural health care.
METHODS:
We treated human primary nasal epithelial cells with 3.5 ppm of hypochlorous acid and then examined the cells for cytotoxicity. We also investigated the bactericidal, fungicidal, and virucidal effects by challenging the cells with the following microorganisms Aspergillus fumigatus, Haemophilus influenzae, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Rhizopus oryzae, Candida albicans, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pneumoniae, and Streptococcus pyogenes. To study the virucidal effects of HOCl, we used the human influenza A virus to challenge the cells.

RESULTS:
In the cytotoxicity assay and in the morphological examination, the cells did not show anytoxicity at 30 minute or 2 hours after treatment with HOCl. More than 99% of bactericidal or fungicidal activity was noted for all species, except for Candida albicans, in tap water at either pH 7.0 or 8.4. In addition, a 3.2-log10 reduction was achieved in cells challenged with the human influenza A virus.
CONCLUSIONS: A low concentration HOCl solution can be used as an effective nasal irrigation solution.

FOOTBATH DETOX

footbath detox

TOXINS

There are many toxins in our environment, and over time our bodies absorb, ingest and accumulate these toxins.  So, we must begin by removing as much of these accumulated toxins as possible.  Through the various forms of detoxification processes, we want to remain very conscious that everything that touches or enters our body contains as few toxins as possible.  In particular, the air we breathe can bring in all sorts of toxins into our body.  But for now, we will focus on hydration detoxification technologies.

The human body is electric because the body cells are electric. Disorders and diseases of the body have vibration frequencies that are incompatible with healthy cells. Thus they disrupt the cells’ natural oscillation and polarity. This disruption creates imbalance and chaos within each affected cell. When cells are in an imbalanced state, they are unable to facilitate the body’s normal functions needed for healing, including ridding itself of heavy metals, parasites and other toxins. On the other hand, when cells are fully charged up to an electrically balanced state, they help the body to regulate itself. As a result, we will HAVE a healthy and energetic feeling.

Studies show that an overall balancing effect occurs with the foot bath, along with a significant increase in the number of negative ions in the human body. Ions are atoms or molecules that have lost or gained electrons. If the atoms or molecules lose electrons, they become positively charged ions. If they gain electrons, they become negatively charged ions.

The ionic technique of cleansing through our feet provides a full body purge of all vital organs

What is a typical footbath detox session?

While immersing your feet in the water, positive and negative ions are emitted by the system. This reenergizes the body and red blood cells. This type of system is described as a Detoxification machine because the response of a rebalanced body is to excrete any excess toxins via the kidneys, liver, bowels and skin. This process not only occurs DURING a detox footbath session, but also AFTER a treatment. The footbath triggers the body’s lymphatic system and continues to detoxify for the next 24 to 48 hours. The entire process takes approximately 30 minutes for adults and is completely safe to use.

During a 30-minute session, the ions enter your body and begin to neutralize these tissue acid wastes. This process is called reverse osmosis.

What is the water’s role in the body?

Since the body is composed of 70% water, it is the perfect way to address wellness for the whole body. The benefits of detoxifying in this manner is similar to walking in the sand along the beach, only more powerful because your feet are in direct contact with the ions being created in the water. Water has an almost perfect balance of positive and negative ions. When you immerse a body mass into water, the vibration frequency of the water will affect the vibration frequency of the body due to the interaction of the magnetic and electrical field. It’s an exceptional natural healing tool. It is a painless and relaxing process, and unlike prescription drugs, there are no harmful side effects.

Can people with Diabetes use the system?

Yes, but it is recommend that users with diabetes begin their detox protocol by using the system at a reduced power rate coupled with a decrease in session length. 10-minute duration is recommended for the first session. If the user feels rejuvenated, then they can slowly begin to increase the time and rate over a period of 30-45 days.

Can women whom are pregnant, those with a heart pacemaker, an organ transplant or epilepsy use the system? No, the detox footbath systems are not recommended for pregnant woman, anyone with a heart pacemaker, an organ transplant or epilepsy.

Why is it important to drink water after a detox footbath?

The action of the footbath is to displace the old lymph either back into the footbath water, or up towards the immune system, for disposal through the kidneys.

The lymph that is pushed towards the immune system for disposal needs to be processed by the immune system. The immune system relies heavily on water that contains alkaline (negatively charged) minerals that supply oxygen to “burn” the unwanted components in the old lymph (which is acidic, positively charged) before they can be recycled by the kidneys.

So, it is extremely valuable to replenish the supply of optimally hydrating water soon after, or even during, the footbath.

Why does the water color change?

The color change in the water can be attributed to a multitude of variances including, but not limited to: the water source quality used in the footbath; the type of lotions or other personal care items used on one’s feet; the user’s sweat, etc.

It’s recommended when you first get the unit to position it against the wall or maybe in a corner where you have walls on both sides or between the wall and a piece of furniture for support. For balance and coordination is recommended not to hold onto anything by using the device but until you developed a good sense of balance you might want something you can grab onto if you feel like you’re losing your balance.

You can virtually exercise every muscle in your body with this device and you can slide exercise tubing with handgrips under the device to exercise your arms while standing. But the best way to exercise your arms is in the sit up or half set up posture with your arms on the device (start at the lowest setting).

How Snore Guard® Works

Snore Guard® is a small intra-oral (in the mouth) device used only during sleep. It helps prevent the jaw and tongue from dropping back into the throat and restricting the air passage. Keeping the air-way open greatly reduces snoring.

It has a unique inner lining that is softened by heat during the fitting process (similar to custom athletic mouth guards). It fits snugly over your top teeth while you sleep and is designed to keep your lower jaw in a comfortable forward position. This keeps your airway open, helping to eliminate snoring.
