Detox Diets

Detox Diets

Set aside a weekend, it's time for spring cleaning -- more accurately, spring cleansing --even though it is already summer. Perfect for the procrastinators among us.

Spring cleansing means detoxifying your body, says Linda Page, ND, PhD, a naturopathic doctor, lecturer, and author of the book Detoxification.

It's a way to recharge, rejuvenate, and renew, says Page. "Anybody can benefit from a cleansing. The body is coming out of what might be called hibernation. It's a way you can jump-start your body for a more active life, a healthier life."

There's no vacuum or mop needed for this little "housekeeping" ritual. It means drinking juice -- a whole lot of juice and little else -- which pushes everything thing else out of your system, Page tells WebMD. You get the picture. You're clearing out all the tubes and pipes, as they say.

Vitamin D Deficiency

Vitamin D Deficiency

 

Vitamin D plays several key roles in your body. Most importantly, vitamin D helps your body absorb the minerals calcium and phosphorus from the food you eat, which is important for bone health.

Many Americans have been found to have low levels of vitamin D. The reasons for this include low availability of vitamin D in food sources, increased time working indoors, and possibly increased use of sunscreens (since sunlight helps the body produce vitamin D).

Certain people may benefit from vitamin D supplementation. However, there is conflicting evidence about the amount of vitamin D that is safe and effective, or even necessary, to use as a supplement.

Probiotics and Better Health

Probiotics and Better Health

Bacteria have a reputation for causing disease, so the idea of tossing down a few billion a day for your health might seem — literally and figuratively — hard to swallow. But a growing body of scientific evidence suggests that you can treat and even prevent some illnesses with foods and supplements containing certain kinds of live bacteria. Northern Europeans consume a lot of these beneficial microorganisms, called probiotics (from pro and biota, meaning "for life"), because of their tradition of eating foods fermented with bacteria, such as yogurt. Probiotic-laced beverages are also big business in Japan.

Enthusiasm for such foods has lagged in the United States, but interest in probiotic supplements is on the rise. Some digestive disease specialists are recommending them for disorders that frustrate conventional medicine, such as irritable bowel syndrome. Since the mid-1990s, clinical studies suggest that probiotic therapy can help treat several gastrointestinal ills, delay the development of allergies in children, and treat and prevent vaginal and urinary infections in women.

Nutrition for Spinal Discs

Nutrition for Spinal Discs

Previous research has shown that 80% of the active population suffers from low back pain at some point in their lives.
But little was known about the chain of events which changes normal, healthy ageing discs into degenerative discs.

Disturbing the balance of nutrients in the discs can then lead to the onset of degenerative disease.Lower back pain, which is linked to degenerative spinal discs, could be caused by this lack of nutrients.

Nutrition For Osteoporosis

Nutrition For Osteoporosis

Several dietary factors affect bone health and are involved in the development of osteoporosis: insufficient calcium intake, vitamin d deficiency, low calcium, high phosphorus intake, high animal protein diets, excess salt intake and other mineral deficiencies.

Studies have shown that excessive dietary animal promote may promote bone loss. Animal protein particularly causes an increase in urinary excretion of calcium. Raising daily protein intake from 47-142 grams doubles the excretion of calcium in the urine. Calcium is mobilized from the bone to buffer the acidic breakdown products of protein. In addition, the amino acid methionine, found highest in meat, dairy products, and eggs is converted to homocysteine, which in high amounts may also cause bone loss.

Chiropractic Care as First Choice in Pain Management

Chiropractic Care as First Choice in Pain Management

Arlington, Va.— During National Chiropractic Health Month (NCHM) in October, the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) will build on its ongoing efforts to raise awareness of the value of a conservative approach to pain management in the face of the U.S. opioid epidemic with the theme and hashtag #Chiropractic1st.
 
"Chiropractic services are an important first line of defense against pain and, in some cases, can lessen a patient's reliance on addictive painkillers or prevent their use altogether," said ACA President David Herd, DC. "It makes sense to exhaust conservative forms of treatment such as chiropractic before moving on to riskier, potentially addictive pain medications."
 
Statistics show that as many as one in four patients who receive prescription opioids long-term for non-cancer pain in primary care settings struggles with addiction. In addition, every day more than 1,000 people are treated in the emergency room for misusing prescription opioids.

Back Surgery May Backfire on Patients in Pain

Chiropractic Care Is an Effective Alternative to Medicine

When a person suffers from back pain, one of their first instincts may be to treat the issue with medication. While this can help in some cases, it rarely has the type of long-term effect that users would hope for. Add to this the fact that both over-the-counter and prescription medicines can cause bothersome side-effects, and it is easy to see why sufferers of back pain are seeking other options. A study published in Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases looked to measure the effect of drugs on spinal pain. Namely, the research was geared toward determining whether NSAIDs (non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs) had any substantial impact on spinal pain. Not only were these drugs proven to be less-than-effective, they were found to increase a user’s risk of gastrointestinal disorders substantially. Since back pain is a very common type of disability, sufferers around the world have sought alternative ways to treat their condition. Chiropractic services are a non-invasive and non-chemical alternative option which people can use to treat their pain. In fact, millions of people visit chiropractors every year to pursue long-term solutions for their back pain. This can help a person get relief for their pain without subjecting themselves to, in certain cases, devastating side effects.

Are Arthritis Sufferers Hesitating to Pursue Relief?

Arthritis is a serious and frustrating condition that affects tens of millions. This type of ailment can make a person’s daily routine much more difficult than it should be. Those afflicted with arthritis may have trouble lifting things, and they may even be inhibited from being mobile without facing serious pain. According to the CDC, more than 54 million adults in the US suffer from arthritis. The total number of afflicted individuals has increased by about 20 percent over the past 15 years. Not only is the condition's widespread prevalence concerning to the medical industry, but the lack of attention given to arthritis' status as a serious disability is also alarming.  One of the main reasons that people may be holding off on pursuing solutions for this condition is that the way to handle it can sometimes result in more pain in the short-term. A healthy amount of physical activity has been proven to help reduce arthritis pain. However, since exercise can be painful for someone who is already suffering from arthritis, some people avoid it altogether.  Though movement can be difficult for a person with this type of disability, it can be used to help ease the severity of the issue. The growing number of sufferers indicates that people are holding off on pursuing relief, though doing so could benefit them in the long-term.
