The Shocking Truth about Aspartame

You are not going to believe this…  Hold on tight – this news may come as quite a shock:  Drinking diet soda pop and chewing sugar free gum puts the weight ON!  But there is more, and it’s not good news!  Hair loss, impotence, eczema, MS, blindness – just a few of the symptoms aspartame causes.  Here is an excerpt from a speech by Nancy Markle on aspartame that explains:

“When the temperature of Aspartame exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in ASPARTAME coverts to formaldehyde and then to formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis. (Formic acid is the poison found in the sting of fire ants). The methanol toxicity mimics multiple sclerosis; thus people were being diagnosed with having multiple sclerosis in error. The multiple sclerosis is not a death sentence, where methanol toxicity is.

* In the case of systemic lupus, we are finding it has become almost as rampant as multiple sclerosis, especially among Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers. Also, with methanol toxicity, victims usually drink three to four 12 oz. cans of them per day, some even more. In the cases of systemic lupus, which is triggered by ASPARTAME, the victim usually does not know that the ASPARTAME is the culprit. The victim continues its use, aggravating the lupus to such a degree that sometimes it becomes life-threatening. When we get people off the ASPARTAME, those with systemic lupus usually become asymptomatic. Unfortunately, we cannot reverse this disease.

* On the other hand, in the case of those diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, (when in reality, the disease is methanol toxicity), most of the symptoms disappear. We have seen cases where their vision has returned and even their hearing has returned. This also applies to cases of tinnitus.

* During a lecture, I said, “If you are using ASPARTAME (NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc.) and you suffer from fibromyalgia symptoms, spasms, shooting pains, numbness in your legs, cramps, vertigo, dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, joint pain, depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, or memory loss – you probably have ASPARTAME DISEASE!

Top 5 things that can keep you from feeling happy

Here is a reminder of a few things you can avoid because they keep your body from producing the serotonin you need to feel happy:

  • Alcohol consumption
  • smoking cigarettes
  • High Fructose Corn Syrup
  • Anti-depressants & other prescription drugs
  • Release of insulin from      too much sugar

Of course, there are things you can do to increase your body’s ability to feel happiness:

  • Exercise 30 minutes a day 5 or more days a week.
  • Spend time in the sunshine.
  • Opt for veggies or slower burning carbs instead of sugar laden snacks.
  • Boost your immune system.  Most of your serotonin is built in your “gut”.  Check with me for the supplements you need to do that.
  • Get proper amounts of sleep.
  • Decrease stress – which may include decreasing stress producing foods, like caffeine, sugar, high fructose corn syrup

The top 10 things you can do to avoid the flu

One credible hypothesis that explains the seasonal nature of flu is that influenza is a vitamin D deficiency disease.  Vitamin D levels in your blood fall to their lowest point during the flu seasons.  Unable to be protected by the body’s own antibiotics (antimicrobial peptides) that are released by vitamin D, a person with low vitamin D blood level is more vulnerable to contracting colds, influenza, and other respiratory infections.  The more optimal the vitamin D level, the lower your risk of contracting colds, flu, and other respiratory tract infections.

#1 – Supplement with vitamin D-3

It makes sense -  since we’re not in the sun very much.  But it must be Vitamin D-3, not a synthetic D-2.  I would suggest a blood test to determine your current D-3 levels.  Meanwhile, talk to me about how much you can supplement with, and which product to use.

#2 – Exercise

Every time we are strenuously active we give ourselves a “fever.”  It is this temporary but significant elevation in core body temperature that destroys significant numbers of bacteria and viruses.  Immunity:  Use it or lose it!

#3 – Hot baths

Sitting immersed in a hot tub for 20 – 30 minutes can help raise your core temperature, effectively making viruses and bacteria uncomfortable and weak so your body can win the battle.

#4 – Eat the right foods

You know what I mean… avoid the sugar and snacks.  Viruses love them.

#5 – Strengthen your liver

The liver is the organ that removes toxins from your body.  You need to strengthen it so it can do its job properly thereby strengthening your immune system.  Check with me for proper supplementation.
#6 – Get adjusted

Studies show that getting a chiropractic adjustment stimulates the immune system.

#7 – Get adequate rest

Rest is always important to your immune system.

#8 – Drink adequate water

Cells can’t eliminate toxins if they are not properly hydrated.

#9 – Wash your hands frequently, and don’t share hand towels.

#10 -  Take probiotics everyday

Research shows that probiotics (like acidophilus, bifidus, mulitdophilus) stimulate and enhance the immune system of the body.

Four critical elements our bodies need!

Let’s talk about the liver.  I keep noticing that many of my patients are having symptoms of a struggling liver, so I thought I would help you understand how the liver works.

Outside toxins and chemicals from drugs and sugars must go through the liver to be converted into something the body can safely use.  The liver uses glutathione to convert all those bad things.

The four critical elements our bodies need in order for you and me to survive;

  1. Air
  2. Water
  3. Food
  4. Glutathione

When we “run out” of this important element, our liver starts to wrap all those bad chemicals in fat and store them …  where ever it can!  That’s bad!

Glutathione has hundreds of functions in the body. But for most people, if we are able to remember the 5 main benefits, we will be familiar with about 90% of what glutathione does:

I will give you AN IDEA here:

  1. It is your Body’s own Master Antioxidant
  2. It is an Immune System Booster and Balancer
  3. It enhances Detoxification of toxins, pollutants, chemicals, etc.
  4. It regenerates mitochondria at the cellular level, giving you Energy
  5. It has an Anti-Aging Effect on your cells.

Research is being done at an ever increasing rate today. As a result, it is now understood that a healthy eyeball has high levels of glutathione, and an eyeball with cataracts is lacking in it.

Let me help you increase your glutathione levels.  Come in for an adjustment and let me teach you what things you need to do for your liver!!

Startling Facts about NSAID’s

With chronic, long term NSAID use the incidence of liver and kidney conditions increases, gastrointestinal bleeding and ulcers are well known adverse reactions, and research reveals that NSAIDs may actually decrease the body’s ability to produce the natural smooth cartilage inside our joints! So the very problem the drugs are made to treat, in this case joint pain and inflammation, might actually be part of the cause of the condition!

With this in mind, what are some other things we can try instead of reaching for the bottle of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories?

Eat a “non-inflammatory” diet. There are foods that contribute to inflammation, and others that suppress inflammation. When you are cooking or baking at home, try substituting all oils with olive oil. The other oils are omega 6 oils, which contribute to inflammation, whereas olive oil is an omega 9, which does not contribute to inflammation. Also, supplement your diet with fish oil (omega 3), which reduces inflammation. Krill oil is even better than regular fish oil.
Eliminate sugars, especially high fructose corn syrup from your diet. Research has shown that these products increase inflammation in the body, contributing to joint pain.
Research reveals that supplementing your diet with glucosamine sulfate can actually help repair cartilage tissues in the joints thereby reducing pain. Other supplements, like Protectin, (scutellaria baicelenesis extract and acacia catechu extract) have been found to reduce joint pain and inflammation. (I have these in my office… just in case you were wondering where you would find a good source.)
Warm up before you exercise! Stretch patiently every day! These activities allow your muscles and tendons to become more flexible, therefore causing less stress on your joints during activity.
Drink water! Don’t wait for thirst to remind you – drink all day!

Kid’s Nutrition

Kid’s Nutrition

How many times do you see parents allowing children to have candy, ice cream, soda and potato chips just to keep them quiet? For children, food provides the building blocks for healthy growth and development. Poor eating habits may result in a lack of energy during school and at play.

Synaptic growth is most significant during your baby’s first few years of life—when he or she is taking in all sorts of new input and acquiring new skills. By the time your child turns 3, each neuron has formed as many as 10,000 connections, making a total of about a quadrillion (1,000,000,000,000,000) throughout the brain. (That’s double the number of connections in your own brain.) Synapse formation slows after the toddler years, but continues throughout childhood and into adolescence, finally reaching adult levels when your child is anywhere from 15 to 18 years old.

Different sugars affect the brain in different ways, so it is only logical to conclude that certain sugars can adversely affect the thinking and actions of some children. The sugars at fault include glucose, dextrose, and sucrose, and the highly refined, highly processed “junk sugars” found in candy, icings, syrups, packaged baked goods, and table sugar. The worst among these is high fructose corn syrup. These sugars enter the bloodstream quickly, reaching high levels in a short time. This triggers the release of large amounts of insulin, the hormone needed to escort the sugars into the body’s cells. These sugars are used rapidly, and when they’re all used up, the blood sugar level plunges to a sugar low, or hypoglycemia . The low blood sugar triggers the release of adrenal hormones (called a “sugar high”) that squeezes stored sugar from the liver, sending blood sugar levels back up. This blood sugar roller-coaster affects moods and concentration in some children and adults, leading to “sugar highs”and “sugar blues.” The ups and downs of blood sugar and adrenal hormones can also stimulate neurotransmitter imbalance, causing the child to feel fidgety, irritable, inattentive, and even sleepy.

The best sugars for the brain are complex carbohydrates. These do not cause the roller-coaster mood swings that the junk sugars do. The molecules in complex carbs are long, so it takes longer for the intestines to break them down into the simple sugars the body can use. Thus, they provide a time-release source of steady energy rather than a sudden surge followed by a sudden drop.

Here are a few tips:

Always include protein with your child’s breakfast.
Replace empty calorie foods with fruits and vegetables.
Survey your own eating habits… What foods are on hand? What are the snack choices?
Increase the variety of fresh fruit you have on hand.
Serve the vegetables that your children like best as often as possible.
Ask your children to try new foods at mealtime.
Serve small portions of a variety of food.
Don’t require them to clean their plates!
Children need vitamin and anti-oxidant supplementation, as well as omega 3 supplementation. (check with me for proper types and amounts)

Chiropractic is for Babies!

I welcomed my new 6 pound 11 ounce grandson into the world with his first adjustment on the third day of life. He was born Sunday, the 21st, and I checked his spine on Tuesday as soon as he got home. Birth can be hard on these little guys. The pressure against the head is quite substantial and can cause quite a bit of trouble if the vertebrae get stuck and quit moving. I’ve found that babies sleep better, cry less, have less colic, have stronger immune systems – after they get adjusted.

I was grateful to be able to help my daughter earlier Sunday. This little guy was insisting on being born posterior. With a technique called “Webster Technique” I was able to convince him otherwise. He settled down into the correct position for birth and my daughter immediately started having less back labor and more productive labor. That was a great chiropractic moment. It is thrilling to see someone benefit so dramatically through chiropractic!

Vitamin D3 & RSV

Pregnant women who take vitamin D can prevent a respiratory illness in newborns called RSV according to a new study published in the American Academy of Pediatrics, May, 2011.
The study suggests that out of the five-million RSV cases every year in the United States, a million fewer kids would get the respiratory virus if more pregnant moms took vitamin D supplements.
“Right now in this study they quote it as 400 international units — so the same as for a newborn child. Although, there have been studies that have shown up to 4,000 international units,” Blackburn said.
The study found that infants who were born with Vitamin D3 levels higher than 75 were 6 times less likely to get RSV in the first year of life.
“Vitamin D deficiency in healthy neonates is associated with increased risk of RSV LRTI in the first year of life,” the study authors write. “Intensified routine vitamin D supplementation during pregnancy may be a useful strategy to prevent RSV LRTI during infancy.”

I have vitamin D3 here in my office that is a good quality. I can help you figure out how much to take.
