We can help arthritis

Twenty-five years in the back-care field has brought more people through my door who thought they had no hope concerning their daily quota of aches and pains. "Oh its my "arthritis", or my "rhematism", nothing anyone can do about it, my mother had it, four of my brothers have it, it just runs in our family...

It continues something like this:

Dr. Downes: "Arthritis? "We can help you with that."

Patient: "No you can't. I only get through on these pills that have been taken off the market, heart attacks."

Dr. Downes: "Inflammation? We can help you with that."

Patient: "No you can't."

Dr. Downes: "How long have you suffered constipation?"

Patient: "Always, everyone in my family does, Runs in the family. How did you know?"

Dr. Downes: "Bet they were a tired bunch too, sick and tired of being sick and tired."

Patient: "Well yes, but its always been that way, runs in the family you know."

Dr. Downes: "Which came first, the constipation or the arthritis? I'd put money on the constipation"

Patient: "You can help me with that?"

YES! We can help with all that. It is a cascading situation starting from either a sluggish liver or constipation. You see, arthritic patients tend to have a lot of toxins in their liver. Guanidine is a very alkaline toxin that is particularly abundant in the liver of arthritic patients. It is caused by constipation or cell trauma. Arthritic patients are almost always constipated. When they are guanidine congests the liver, and it pours into the blood stream and causes the blood to become alkaline. When our blood becomes more alkaline it causes blood calcium to precipitate out of the blood stream and deposit around the joints which eventually become arthritic calcifications. Slowly it turns our joints to stone, thus the stiffness factor of arthritis. We move more slowly, more painfully, and our exercise suffers which invariably leads to constipation, toxins, a downward spiral that, fortunately, is not a necessary part of aging.

YES! We can help with all that. This is what we do in Functional Medicine.

In this case, we need to neutralize the guanidine and we have to detoxify the liver, Then we must address the constipation so more guanidine is not formed. We factor into treatment, a formula which contain anti-stiffness factors, isolated by Dr. Wulzen at the University of Oregon. This is found in sugar cane juice, in raw cream and raw soybeans. Dr. Royal Lee discovered ways of exrtracting the best minerals and nutrients from the sugar cane juice to give us a fabulous product for detoxifying the liver while affording some relief with the amazing anti-stiffness factor all in a pure formulation of organic food.

YES! We can help all that, and it involves getting functionally well with nourishing whole foods. We can move well and be well. Bring the family...

Headache Relief with Chiropractic Care
Many people suffer from chronic headaches needlessly. Some headaches can be attributed to stress or tension which can affect the neck. In fact the latest medical literature1 reports that many cases of chronic headache are caused by a biomechanical problem in the neck—which is often misdiagnosed or unrecognized by physicians.

Power Immunity
Just say no to H1N1

Our bodies do not have an immune system, as much as it is an immune system in its functional totality.  Systems such as the skeletal system, respiratory system, reproductive system, endocrine system, central nervous system, etc. are complete functioning systems with a clear set of organs and responses.  The human body does not have a single immune system, as it is better described as having an immune alliance among various systems  and organs which when coordinated by the brain, give an immune response to the presence of disease associated factors, such as bacteria or vital invasion.  The immune alliance is comprised of the thymus gland for lymphocytes, the spleen for antibodies, bone marrow for blood cell formation, digestive system and its acid to destroy parasites, intestinal flora, which destroy pathogenic microbes, and the liver for detoxification and enzyme production.

Whole Food for whole body health
As a chiropractor I came to my work in whole food nutrition not by design but by necessity. My earlier thought was that there were plenty of nutritionists, plenty of nutritional advice, and lots of vegetables to be had if one wished to follow that path.
