PROBIOTICS

Beneficial bacteria, also known as probiotics, are the first line of defense in our gut to protect us from harmful ingested bacteria, pathogens and fungus. These probiotics deny the harmful bacteria from surviving or flourishing and thereby poisoning our bodies. Probiotics also help the breakdown of life giving nutrients for proper absorption. What good is a vitamin if our body cannot absorb it?

I prefer Standard Process ProSynbiotic, because it is well tested live cultures and packaged in amber colored glass bottles. This protects the live cultures from sun and oxygen, which can kill good bacteria. It also contains an amino acid called Glutamine, which is very healing on the GI tract. So along with giving you the good bacteria, it also helps to heal the inner lining of the stomach and intestines.

You can also get probiotics and good bacteria from certain foods. The highest amounts of probiotics are contained in fermented foods such as raw sauerkraut, raw beet juice, Kimchi, Miso Soup, Kefir and Kombucha. Yogurt, which is high in only one strain of probiotics, is also high in sugar which decreases its helpfulness.

PURIFICATION PROGRAM

Coming January 1, 2016!

In reviewing several “detox” programs, I personally endorse the Standard Process 21 Day Purification Program. This detoxification includes a combination of a whole food, nonprocessed diet, along with eliminating the two most common food irritants, dairy and gluten. Along with a completely clean eating program, it includes whole food nutrition to help flush your kidneys, liver and intestines. For 21 days you will clean yourself from the inside out.

This program, offered through my office, will also include details on foods and recipes to make this journey as easy as possible. My husband and I have personally completed this program several times. The most important decision for you to make is are you willing to really make changes and sacrifices for 21 days? If you are, the results are amazing!

We are offering classes in our office to learn more about this detox program. They are available at 6:15pm on Monday, December 7th and 28th. You can also find more information at www.standardprocess.com.

Join me and my staff at Florence Chiropractic Center as we embark on our journey for a NEW YEAR TO A NEW YOU! Please call the office to reserve your place for the free informational class.

SPOTLIGHT ON: FISH OIL

Picture1The oil from cold water fish is very high in omega 3 essential fatty acids. Omega 3s are the “good fats” that keep our blood vessels and tendons elastic, decrease inflammation and prevent blockages in the heart and brain. Omega 3s contain EPAs and DHAs. EPAs are best when used as anti-inflammatories and DHAs are best for brain health, especially improving memory and attention deficit disorders. Omega 3s are also found in oils such as flax, walnut and hemp, however, fish oils are the only omega 3s that also work as natural anti-inflammatories. As a chiropractor, fish oil is the form of omega 3s that I strongly recommend. For quality, as well as potency, I recommend both Metagenics EPA-DHA 500, as well as Standard Process Tuna Omega 3 (which also comes in a rather pleasant chewable form). I suggest 2,000mg-4,000mg per day. Fish oils are not to be used by patients on prescription blood thinners, because it decreases blood clotting and can conflict with your medication.

I am not a fan of most over the counter fish oils. The common, mass produced brands are typically from farm raised, factory fish houses. This is where thousands of fish are raised in very small tanks. To keep the fish from becoming diseased in these cramped quarters, the water is treated with multiple chemicals, antibiotics and fungicides. Oils trap toxins and the unused oils in our bodies, as well as the bodies of animals, get stored as fat. Eating farm raised fish, and especially using the oils, is very toxic and potentially harmful to our nervous system.
