Autoimmune diseases

By on Aug 29, 2017 in Autoimmune Disease | 0 comments

One may ask…..”why are there so many autoimmune diseases seen today?” In our world today, there are quite a few environmental toxins and or chemical that constantly attack and hit at us daily.   Also, there are many of us with a deficit in basic nutrients that our body is needing.  We are lacking in many of the minerals, vitamins, amino acids, water, and fiber that  our body is needing to maintain good health. There is a current article – Why An Apple Today Is Not Good, explaining some of the reasons  health care providers are findings nutritional deficits. “Modern farming methods are blamed for the decline in minerals such as copper, iron, magnesium and potassium in fruit and vegetables. Crops are being grown in soil stripped of its goodness”. “Vitamin loss could be exacerbated by fruits being picked before they are ripe”. Dr Thomas said: “We found that since 1940, the minerals and other nutrients that help to make fruit and vegetables good for you have been in startling decline. Eating fruit and vegetables is still beneficial for health, but continuing falls in nutrients could lead to deficiencies in some consumers”. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-207652/Why-apple-today-good.html   Another major concern as an autoimmune risk factor is the changes we are seeing in our microbiome – our invisable organ’ .  Our gut is very involved in a ‘cross talk’ with the brain and our immune system.  A disruption of our gut microbiome is the beginnings of most all autoimmune diseases.  Anything that we eat will affect or gut whether it is positive or negative. There are 6 different changes that takes place in the gut when we have a negative outcome 1. Gut lining gets disturbed 2. Gut begins to absorb nutrients improperly 3. Gut becomes inflamed 4. Leaky gut – which affects your memory, causes joint pain, causes skin rashes 5. Begin to develop a food sensitivity 6. Autoimmune disease Come in and lets talk! We will help you find out the best option to get your health turned around to avoid autoimmune disease.  We will  be able to help identify your health baseline including your gut health.  We will discuss diet, lifestyle changes along with doing  a bioscan to assess where you stand...

Low ‘T’

By on Aug 29, 2017 in Hormone Imbalance | 0 comments

Low T – the buzz word today of having low testosterone is  becoming quite an epidemic.  Many of my male patients are frustrated with low energy levels, poor focus, mood changes, weight gain, little desire for sex and even suffer with erectile dysfunction.  After blood work, there is evidence of very low testosterone.  They cannot understand how this happened to them, and what their options are to correct this problem. Sad to say…..most of them are 30 years old or younger! In the health care profession, we are noting a trend that on average, a young man in his 20’s and 30’s have a testosterone level lower than their grandfathers!! There are many reasons this could be happening.   Our environment is definitely not like it was in grandpa’s day!  Just having a little more understanding of the exposures out there that is destroying your bodies ability to maintain its balance in testosterone will help you move forward in fixing the problem. Dr. David Friedman talks of several exposures in a mans daily life that puts him at risk for low testosterone. “During the past decade, while men’s T levels have rapidly been declining, there’s been a proportionate increase in the use of laptop computers. ”  “In January 2012, the journal Fertility and Sterility published a study showing that men who have been exposed to a wireless internet-connected laptop showed a significant decrease in sperm motility and decreased fertility.  The solution?  Men should never put their laptop on their lap unless there’s a 12-inch cushion under the notebook, as this is about how far the EMF field transfers.  EMF shields are also available to put under laptops, which protects the body from these dangerous frequencies.” http://www.doctordavidfriedman.com/low-testosterone-could-your-cell-phone-or-laptop-be-to-blame/ Going on Testosterone replacement therapy in a man age 50 or younger, is not the best or safest option.  TRT – (testosterone replacement therapy) could place you at risk for heart attacks, strokes, and cancers later on in life. Come in and see me to discuss the best and safest option of treatment for you.  ...
