INFLAMMATION AND DIET PART FOUR OF OUR SERIES ON INFLAMMATION

Date: May 19, 2017 | Time: 1:53pm

Our bodies are machines. Magnificent machines, in fact. And like all machines, we need fuel. If we take our gas-powered car to the station and grab the wrong pump handle, we can expect major mechanical failure. If you are using a torch, and the oxyacetylene and air are not mixing correctly, you could have a very hot torch, or a loud popping noise that will scare you. The point is that all machines needs proper fuel to run well. We do, too.

Although there is controversy regarding some elements of the relationship between your diet and inflammation, some things are proven true.

1. Over-indulgence in any one food or food group may trigger sensitivity to that food and a possible inflammatory response. Eat a varied diet full of many colors and food groups. If you prepare a plate that is appealing to the eye, with varied colors and textures, you are making great selections.

2. Avoid processed foods as much as you can. We all understand that pizza is a great helper after a long hard day at work, and sometimes it seems to be the best option. However, if you have a routine of the drive thru's and the kids already have their choice picked for tonight, you may want to rethink this habit. There are many meals which can be prepared in 30 minutes or less. Having breakfast for dinner is a highlight for kids. You can whip up an omelet and toast rather quickly. Crockpot meals are another great option, and you will have zero wait time when you get home. Have the kids put their dinner plate on the table upside down when they remove their breakfast dishes, so the table is already set before you leave home in the morning. If using paper plates helps with cleanup, then do so. Teach the kids to wash their silverware, and rinse their glass out. Don't be afraid to engage them in the process of preparing dinner. Let them select recipes in your cookbooks with pictures. Cooking is a great way to learn math skills, hand-eye coordination, creativity and nutrition. Allow them to shop, and teach them how to save money and compare prices. Help them prepare a meal, and turn it into special time with them. Let them glow as they serve their meal. You may even begin to look forward to meal time.

3. You may not believe it, but eating meals at the table as a family is a great de-stressor. Provide a meal that is fun and light, with conversation to match. Let the kids tell you about their day. Go beyond "how was your day" and "fine". Remember that stress is a huge source of inflammation, so stop the rush when you hit the door, and spend the next hour preparing and eating a great simple meal.

In review, food is fuel. Feed your body well, and do it in a manner that encourages relaxation and good digestion. Although you may not see immediate results, you most certainly will begin to feel some changes if you follow through.

Inflammation, Part 3 of 4: Natural Supplements

Date: May 5, 2017 | Time: 12:54pm

In our last two articles, we discussed what inflammation was the leading causes. Although there are substantial forms of treatment available to those who are suffering from light to severe inflammation in different parts of the body, patients are also encouraged to take health supplements to relieve the symptoms of inflammation. Below are some supplements that Bayside Chiropractic Rehab & Laser Therapy recommends for you:

Curcumin 500 with Bioperine produced by Pure Encapsulations. This helps to support your body in providing a healthy inflammatory response when needed. It also helps to support healthy liver and colon function.

Ayur-Curcumin by Douglas Labs. This supplement contains turmeric, a traditional Indian spice which has been used for medicinal purposes for years. It has antioxidant properties that help your body with inflammation, as well as cardiovascular and neurological function.

Ayur-Boswellia by Douglas Labs. This supplement is great for promoting joint health! It helps you to maintain mobility by increasing blood supply to joint tissues.

Vitamin B12 5000. B12 is a common health supplement. Patients use it for everything from maintaining strong healthy cardio to reducing stress levels. It is also known to boost energy and help keep inflammation low after intense exercise. Vitamin B12 is commonly used in conjunction with Alpha-Lipoic Acid to help with peripheral neuropathy. High doses are required in the proper forms, so we always recommend using this under the care of a professional.

Inflammatone by Designs for Health. This vegetarian supplement contains a combination of the immune supporting herbs and enzymes to help support wellness. It has several uses including headache support, supporting a healthy immune system, respiratory health and gastric and small intestinal support.

Vitamin D 5000. When it comes to supplements, Vitamin D is a workhorse, as it is used to promote general health. It provides great support for muscles and bones. Vitamin D has also been known to maintain breast health and also support pancreas, colon, and immune function.

Calcium. Although the body can function without some vitamins or minerals, it cannot function without Calcium. Calcium supplements such as Cal-6-Forte aid the body in building strong bones, reduce the chances of blood clots, stimulate information transfer in the nerves, and keep the teeth vibrant and strong.

Melatonin. Most people associate melatonin with promoting a good night's sleep. Melatonin, however, is best used as a stress reliever and a hormone balancer. When taken in small doses (around 3mg, sublingual), melatonin can relax the body and give someone a sense of well-being.

Gaba. Although not as well known as Melatonin, Gaba is also used as a mood booster. It can relieve anxiety, improve sleep, help with premenstrual syndrome, and has even been used to help treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Consult Your Doctor Before Taking Supplements

Before you take supplements, you should consult with your physician to make sure that you are taking the supplements for the right reason / purpose, and also to ensure that you have no pre-existing conditions that could be irritated by the supplement. Supplements should always be taken as prescribed or according to the direction on the bottle. Remember, that supplements should never be used as a primary resource for essential vitamins and minerals. They merely accept a healthy, well-rounded diet.

Inflammation part 2 of 4: What Causes It?

Date: April 21, 2017 | Time: 1:34pm

tumblr inline oos11vpSkc1uv5ml6 540

The last time that you were bitten by a mosquito or stubbed your toe, you probably noticed the red swelling or experienced itchiness. These are classic signs of inflammation - your body's natural defense to infection and injury. Acute inflammation like this only lasts a few days, but there are many causes of this affliction affecting nearly every American at least once in their lifetime, according to the CDC. Here are six surprising causes of inflammation.

1. Extra Weight

You may not realize it, but those few extra pounds that you're carrying around on you can cause inflammation. As you get older, the cells in your fat tissue age which promotes inflammation. (Just one more reason to enjoy that afternoon walk!) There are many foods that you can eat that will aid in your fight against inflammation - blueberries, oats, ginger and green tea are just a few tasty treats that can help!

What our office can do: We offer ChiroThin weight loss program that is supervised by the Doc.

2. Stress

Like inflammation, there is acute and chronic stress. Chronic stress can be caused by marital issues or work anxiety. The hormone cortisol plays a role in regulating your body's inflammatory response. Chronic stress can weaken your body's ability to manage inflammation. You're also more likely to get sick when your body can't control inflammation!

What our office can do: The Doc can give you an adjustment which decreases inflammation and releases endorphins (runners high) which decrease stress.

3. Smoking

Every puff that you take from a cigarette irritates your lungs. This leads to a small degree of inflammation in your lungs that can worsen other existing lung problems like COPD, asthma and allergies. Some experts even believe that the inflammation caused to lungs by smoking is what causes cells to mutate, eventually leading to lung cancer. Good news: once you kick the habit, inflammation markers drop dramatically in just a few weeks!

What our office can do: Ask Doc his experiences, as he used to smoke so he can relate.

4. Your Guts!

The majority of inflammatory diseases actually start in your gut with an autoimmune reaction. According to researchers, over 70% of your immune cells live in your intestines. That bacteria can either suppress or activate inflammation. Your stomach is made up of a very large and intricate lining. The lining can be damaged over time due to certain foods (corn, dairy, soy, wheat, gluten, refined sugars, preservatives, etc.), alcohol and stress. When this happens, bad bacteria can enter your bloodstream. Your body's natural reaction is inflammation. It may not seem like a big deal, but over time this can lead to serious health issues such as Alzheimer's, Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, heart attacks, kidney failure and stroke.

What our office can do: Nutritional Consult, Diet, and supplements including probiotics.

5. Alcohol

Alcohol is part of our culture. It helps us to celebrate and socialize, but alcohol does play a part in inflammation. Short-term alcohol abuse can inflame your stomach lining, leading to vomiting. Long-term alcohol abuse can lead do inflammation of the esophagus which can lead to ulcers and cancer. Alcohol is also a common cause of gout, which is a condition that causes inflammation of the joints. Just one more reason to avoid that night cap!

What our office can do: Ask Doc! Although he doesn't drink he grew up with an alcoholic father so he knows how it affects health and the well-being of the whole family.

The bottom line: inflammation can be caused by several different factors. It's important to make healthy choices in your diet and to exercise regularly and find someone who is trained on the subject to consult with. Do not believe every internet hoax or fad, some are more destructive than good.

Bayside Chiropractic: Inflammation Part 1 of 4 - What is it?

Date: April 7, 2017 | Time: 7:25am

tumblr inline oo1m9guUBr1uv5ml6 540

Inflammation is a commonly used word that we all know the general meaning of, but do you really understand what it is? It is a common, natural response that your body has to injury, illness, pain and even stress. When you have swelling, it is your body's attempt at self-protection to remove harmful stimuli in order to engage the healing process. When something harmful irritates your body and you see swelling or discoloration, that's your body's way of removing, or healing it. The best thing is, your body knows how to heal itself, and the first responder to redness, swelling, irritation, or that warmness you feel from an injury is the inflammatory process. It is actually extremely essential for overall health, and it doesn't happen by accident.

Acute Inflammation

This is a type of irritation that is rapid or can become severe quickly. It is the initial response to a pathogen or injury. It is usually short lived, but some cases can last a few weeks. A few things that can kick off this can range from trauma, infection, and burns or be specific, such as: bronchitis, appendicitis, or even a sore throat from a cold. Have you ever had a sports injury? If so, you remember the swelling. That was acute inflammation and your body fighting the injury!

Chronic inflammation

This is defined as inflammation that is long term, lasting months or years due to slow tissue damage. A likely cause is because of factors like previous acute inflammation that you didn't treat, or an autoimmune response to a self-antigen. Arthritis, tuberculosis, and chronic periodontitis are only a few examples of this type. Chronic inflammation can eventually cause several diseases and conditions including cancers which is why it is crucial that it is evaluated and treated.

Reducing Inflammation

Taking care of your body is key in living a longer, healthier life. Taking control, and treating any inflammation your body has is vital in your health as well. Instead of relying on anti-inflammatory medication for short term relief, try natural alternatives. Less stress, a healthier diet, and the adequate amount of sleep each night can all help reduce the amount of irritation your body suffers from.

Chiropractic Adjustments

One goal of a chiropractor is to help promote the nervous system, which contributes to the productivity of the immune system. Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to aid in the elimination of inflammation. Examples include sinus related issues and sports injuries. Your chiropractor will assess your body and target the specific areas that need to be focused on for optimum long-term health and wellness.
