Spinal Decompression Therapy

Spinal Decompression Therapy decreases the pressure on the disc, widens the joint and promotes healing of the damaged disc, nerves and surrounding structures.

70% of American’s have low Vitamin D levels
60% are deficient in Vitamin E
40% are deficient in Magnesium
38% are deficient in Calcium
35% are deficient in Vitamin K
34% are deficient in Vitamin A
25% are deficient in Vitamin C

TESTING: Genetics, Food Sensitivities

How to Test for MTHFR Mutations and What to Do if You Have Them by Amy Myers

In my last article I talked about what MTHFR mutations are, why they matter, and how they’re connected to autoimmune disease, Hashimoto’s, Graves, and thyroid dysfunction. If you’re just joining me, be sure to check out the first article and then pop back over here.

Found My Fitness Genetic Testing

Gene variants called SNPs can affect the way our bodies absorb, metabolize, and utilize nutrients, and determine how effectively we eliminate potential carcinogens. By understanding the mechanisms by which these genes work and analyzing data generated from genome-wide association studies scientists can now understand what impact SNPs may have on disease risk and longevity in relationship with certain gene-environmental contexts.

Once researchers understand how specific genotypes can affect how our genes function, this enables development of the most favorable nutritional and lifestyle strategies specific to a person’s genotype. This comprehensive genetic report consolidates up-to-date research on most of the common SNPs that research suggests may have actionable nutritional and lifestyle interventions based on scientific evidence. In order for us to produce your customized report, you must have been tested previously by a DNA testing service like 23andMe.

Food Sensitivities

US Biotek can check your food sensitivities with a simple finger prick test. Their 144 panel test checks for a delayed reaction to food (IgG = gradual response), most offices only check for an IgE reaction (IgE = emergency). A delayed reaction makes it harder to find which food is causing the problem as the symptoms take 24-36 hours to appear. Read more about their testing here, and see a sample report here.

 

Diet & Exercise

https://www.ketofast.com/

Dr. Mercola’s new book Ketofast will give you several options on how to improve your health through diet. You can start with a decreased eating window or jump right into the ketogenic lifestyle.

Whole 30 Paleo Diet

Certain food groups (like sugar, grains, dairy and legumes) could be having a negative impact on your health and fitness without you even realizing it.

Are your energy levels inconsistent or non-existent? Do you have  aches and pains that can’t be explained by over-use or injury? Are you having a hard time losing weight no matter how hard you try?

Do you have some sort of condition (like skin issues, digestive ailments, seasonal allergies or fertility issues) that medication hasn’t helped? These symptoms may be directly related to the
foods you eat – even the “healthy” stuff. So how do you know if (and how) these foods are affecting you?

Histamine Handout  Could histamine’s be causing your migraines?

Histamine are know to cause allergic reactions, but they can also trigger migraines, joint pain and can also cause leaky gut syndrome. The above handout will help you figure out if you are allergic to certain foods that are high in histamines.

To break down histamine in the body you need nutritional cofactors – iron, B12, B6, copper and Vitamin C. This is why I recommend patients take a maintenance dose of the vitamins listed above on our Why you should take vitamins handout.

Is Gluten to blame for you Hasimoto’s?

By now you’re likely at least somewhat familiar with the gluten-free movement. You may have heard that gluten sensitivity can cause health problems and a myriad of symptoms. However, did you know it is particularly damaging for anyone with Hashimoto’s?
