COLD AND FLU…WHAT TO DO?
In July of 2017, the esteemed CDC casually said that the flu shots for the elderly for the previous winter were “essentially ineffective.”
That’s right, my friends, the acknowledged experts of all things relating to health issues have once again admitted that they don’t have a clue when it comes to flu shots!
There is no way to predict what the strain of the flu will be for each season, therefore there is no way to prepare a shot that will be effective for whatever strain decides to wander through your town each winter. Yet year after year we are told that it is going to be a really bad flu season so you’d better get your shot ASAP.
This is illogical. Raise your hand if you’ve gone decades without getting the flu, but gave in to the predictable pressure from your favorite medical professional and gotten the shot. 24 hours later you are in bed with…….wait for it……the flu! That’s right, the very shot that you were told can’t give you the flu actually did exactly that. What are the odds!
Another common occurrence is the problem with ear infections in kids. If a child gets an ear infection, they are obviously deficient in antibiotics and Tylenol. The research on the lack of effectiveness and overuse of antibiotics and the dangers of Tylenol is noteworthy and should be considered if you are told to treat the problem with drugs.
Our monthly presentation at Hancock Healthcare on the 28th of September from 4:00 to 5:15 is dedicated to telling you about the latest research on these hot topics and the natural approaches to dealing with them. Call 445-5607 to reserve a seat! See you there!Read more
How Sweet It Isn’t…Blood Sugar Imbalances
Do you have a sweet tooth? Do you crave sugar? Are you about to be diagnosed with diabetes? What does diabetes feel like? What are the possible side effects of blood sugar issues?
These questions are extremely important to consider for you and your family. Why? Because there are devastating consequences awaiting you and your family if you have problems that are not properly addressed.
About half of US adults are pre-diabetic, which means that they have Syndrome X, Metabolic syndrome, or insulin resistance. The number of diabetics in the US has increased 71% since 1990!
The number one cause of limb amputation, kidney failure, and blindness is diabetes. Most of the time there are no symptoms of diabetes, so you may be unaware of the life-changing damage that awaits you. 90-95% of diabetics do it to themselves by not exercising properly and/or by eating the Standard-American-Diet…SAD.
Ask yourself this….”Do you eat the way your parents ate when you were young?” Right! So your kids will probably eat the way you do today. Are you setting the right example?
The best diet in the world for creating degenerative diseases is the All-American diet, which, of course, is loaded with refined sugar!
It is essential to understand why you crave sugar and carbs and how to break the cycle of eating junk, gaining weight, and increasing your risks of horrible diseases!
On August 25,th from 4:00 to 5:15 PM, we offer a class that will explain why you crave sweets, what can happen to you if you eat sugar, and how to deal with it in a natural way. We will discuss the wonderful ways to eat nature’s sweeteners like berries, local honey or stevia and satisfy your sugar cravings the right way. The class costs $5 per person and is only offered once this year, so don’t miss out! Call 445-5607 to reserve your seat today!Read more
THE BIG THREE TREATMENTS!
In our clinic we utilize several different procedures to help our patients achieve and maintain optimal health. Three of those treatments are especially impactful on the health and wellbeing of many our patients. We refer to them as the Big Three!
It is well established that chiropractic care is beneficial. We offer low force, full spine and extremity adjusting that truly sets us apart from most adjusting styles, and is more in demand all of the time. This core treatment used with the Big Three brings amazing results in overall health and wellness. So let’s introduce the Big Three:
First, we offer the Body Scan in which we check the glands, organs, immune system, toxicity, lobes of the brain, and more. It is a thorough muscle-testing procedure that is very popular in our clinic. This scan takes the guess work out of choosing what nutrients or homeopathic formulations are needed by your body. Patients leave with specific information that allows them to know what to do next to start the road to optimal health.
Next, is our FDA-approved Cold Lasers that have over 100 different settings and are so safe that they are approved for patients to use at home.
The lasers have 3 blended wavelengths that allow for shallow-to-deep penetration into the tissues that need treatment. Lasers have been proven (we have the references) to increase energy production through mitochondrial activation, and increase protein synthesis, blood flow, lymphatic drainage, and oxygen flow. This means that they accelerate the healing process! The lasers have also been proven to reduce pain and inflammation!
The third part of the Big Three is our acupuncture treatments using lasers, not needles. We use the Acugraph Digital Meridian Imaging ™ system to analyze and document the energetic status of the patient’s acupuncture meridians. This painless procedure allows the patient to take home a printed copy of their graphic interpretation of the meridians checked. In addition, a copy of involved meridians may be printed, with a copy of specific points that the patient may use at home to accelerate clinical response and healing.
Think of the requirements of a garden, you understand that you need good soil, good sunlight, and proper water. If you compare those needs to your body, you would understand that knowing where to begin (Body Scan) and providing the proper nutrition represents good soil. The cold lasers provide the light wavelengths (sunlight) to improve function, and our acupuncture treatments using lasers, not needles, are analogous to a good drip system.
You can see why we are so excited to provide these services to our patients and why they respond so well to it!
To see a live discussion and demonstration of these amazing treatment protocols, call Hancock Healthcare at 445-5607 ASAP to reserve your seat for the class we will offer on July 27th, 2017 from 4:00 to 5:15 PM. Seating is limited, so call today!Read more
Cancer…What CAN you do?
Probably the most ominous diagnosis anyone can imagine getting is having cancer. Cancer is defined as a group of diseases characterized by uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells.
What is also uncontrolled is the spread of cancer in this country and our apparent lack of knowledge and willpower to change our lifestyle to help prevent it.
For example, in 2012 there were 577,000 deaths from cancer, and 363,000 were preventable! Current genetic research shows that our lifestyle choices, including what we eat, can impact the genetics we pass on to our children. It also shows that our lifestyle choices can trump the bad genetics IF we choose wisely.
What is now well understood is that cancer is passing heart disease as the #1 killer in some states, including Arizona.
The benefits of avoiding sugar, taking key nutrients, and proper exercise are well documented for the prevention and treatment of cancer AND NEARLY EVERY OTHER CONDITION KNOWN TO MAN!
Nutritional supplements can play a massive role in the prevention of cancer. We will give you a list at our class that may offer huge benefits to you and your family. You will learn about Longevi-D, and Whole C. Did you know that ascorbic acid is simply a blend of corn syrup and hydrochloric acid and that it is touted as vitamin C in some cheap nutritional supplements? Vitamin C is made up of 4 different parts, not one!
Did you know that some studies indicate that toxicity may cause 95% of all cancers? We will provide information on the best plan and supplements for healthy detoxification, like Liver-Kidney, Opti-Cleanse, and others.
Join us for one night of powerful information on June 22nd, 2017 from 4:00 to 5:15 PM. Call 445-5607 to reserve a seat today!Read more
Sleep Problems…The “Rest” of the Story!
According to the CDC, 35% of Americans are falling short in this category, and that shortfall may cost $200 billion in workplace problems in the U.S. alone. Also, this problem can lead to a big list of health issues.
Is it a nutritional deficiency? Is it a dietary problem, like too much alcohol or sugar?
It is getting less than the recommended 7 hours of sleep each night!
Research indicates that if you aren’t getting enough sleep you are increasing your risk of anxiety, memory loss, weight gain, mood swings, high blood pressure, and a reduction in work and physical performance.
Chronic sleep deprivation may lead to obesity, diabetes, dementia, heart disease, and even early death.
These are just a few things that can impact your ability to sleep well: drug reactions, poor diet choices, electromagnetic stress from cell phones and computers, going to sleep at different times, wearing sunglasses most of the time when outside, allowing kids or pets to sleep with you, too much light in the bedroom, and lack of exercise.
What we find clinically is that there are two nutrients that can make a huge positive impact on sleep problems.
“Pineal Concentrate” helps to rebuild your pineal gland so that it can produce the proper amount of the sleep inducing hormone called melatonin. It is so much smarter for you to produce your own supply of melatonin instead of buying it at a store or taking scary drugs, right? Right!
The other nutrient is “REM Sleep” which contains a great combination of herbs and other natural ingredients that can safely promote restful sleep. Both supplements are all natural and non-habit forming!
