Medical Food – Osteoben™ – New Dietary Management for Osteoporosis Really Works!

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. T:

At Thorburn Chiropractic and Wellness Center, we have a new real-food nutritional product available that is so powerful, it’s actually classified as a medical food.  Medical foods are foods that are specially formulated and intended for the dietary management of a disease that has distinctive nutritional needs that cannot be met by normal diet alone.

Osteoben™, created for the dietary management of osteoporosis and osteopenia, improves outcomes with science-based combination therapy.  Osteoben contains genistein aglycone, a plant-based substance which may positively regulate bone cell metabolism without serious side effects.  It is also rich in calcium and vitamin D3.  In a study published in The Annals of Internal Medicine, the combination of genistein aglycone, calcium and D3 was found to have significantly increased bone mineral density more than calcium and D3 alone.  In addition, the study showed that the triple combination increased new bone formation and decreased bone loss.  Osteoben™ also contains magnesium, vitamin K, and zinc.

Other benefits of Osteoben™ include significant reduction in the frequency and severity of hot flashes in menopausal women and significant reduction in specific predictors of cardiovascular risk, with no side effects on endometrial thickness.

Because Osteoben™ is not a drug but rather a medical food, no prescription is necessary.  If you’ve been diagnosed with osteoporosis or have a family history of osteoporosis, this product may be right for you.  Call our office for more information, stop by, or let’s talk about it during your next appointment.

Until next time…

Yours in health,

Dr. T

Misalignment from Debilitating Spine Condition and Sciatica Pain Resolved by Burbank Chiropractor

Posted on Updated on

Greetings from Dr. T:

Sometimes a patient’s return to health is so pronounced that they just have to share their joy.  Such is the case with Beth N., who gave us permission to disclose her story.  It is extremely gratifying to see her radiating health and happiness.

Here is her story in Beth’s own words:

“After suffering with a degenerative spine disease for 13 years and then having stem cell surgery, the alignment of my spine and body was completely off from years of overcompensation.  My back would ‘go out’ and my sciatica nerve was terribly painful.

I came to Dr. Thorburn after I threw my back out making my bed and I couldn’t stand up straight.  Her team worked out a rigorous program of adjustments for me and I can say with complete confidence that this was the final ingredient to making me feel amazing!

My body feels so good and I rarely have a problem with my sciatica nerve.  I am incredibly grateful for the help and care of Dr. Thorburn and her team.”

Why suffer needlessly?  Do you have back pain?  Neck pain?  Have you had an auto accident recently, you walked away without any treatment, and now the pain has set in?

At Thorburn Chiropractic and Wellness Center, we can assess your condition and set up a plan of treatment that will encourage your body to heal.  Our full service Wellness Center offers complete chiropractic care, therapeutic massage, and nutritional counseling with real-food supplements.  We accept all major insurance plans.  Call us for an appointment.  You will be glad you did!

Until next time…

Yours in health,

Dr. T

Forced Vaccination Bill Now in CA Assembly

Posted on Updated on

Greetings from Dr. T:

Back in March I forwarded you some information on this important bill before the California Assembly, and now the bill is being fast tracked. My concern is that if this passes, who owns you and your family’s bodies? This is more than just a health issue — it is a human rights issue. How far could such legislation reach?

People think-oh it can’t be so bad. It’s for everyone’s health, right? Look throughout history at what happens when men lose a freedom. Please read information from the National Vaccination Information Center (NVIC) below and act if you agree with me that our basic freedoms are being challenged.

ALERT: California Assembly Fast Tracking Forced Vaccination Bill

The California Assembly is fast tracking SB 277, a bill to eliminate all non-medical vaccine exemptions for religious and conscientious beliefs from the mandatory vaccination law governing school attendance. Although there were public hearings in the Health, Education and Judiciary committees in the state Senate, the bill has only been referred to the Health Committee and a hearing could be scheduled as early as the beginning of next week (June 8-12, 2015.)

With no scheduled public hearings in the Education or Appropriations committees, SB 277 will not be reviewed in the Assembly for civil rights violations and financial impact. It looks like the skids are being greased by pharmaceutical, medical trade and government lobbyists pressuring legislators to bring the bill to a fast floor vote and send it to Governor Brown for his signature.

California Parents – This May Be Your Last Chance to Act

If you live in California and are the parent of a child who attends daycare, public or private school, you may only have one more week left to contact your Assembly member and tell the person you elected to represent you what you think about SB 277.

Download a handout here that lists five good reasons why SB 277 should not become law. Give it to your Assembly member so he or she understands why:

• SB 277 is not based on scientific evidence or compelling state interest;
• SB 277 is a violation of parental and human rights;
• SB 277 requires children to risk vaccine injury, while vaccine manufacturers and doctors administering vaccines are shielded from vaccine injury liability;
• SB 277 discriminates against children to deny them a school-based education guaranteed by the California Constitution; and
• SB 277 will be excessively expensive to administer and enforce.

You can track SB277 and immediately contact your Assembly member on your cell phone, tablet or computer by becoming a user of the free NVIC Advocacy Portal.

If the bill is voted out of the Assembly Health Committee and then quickly approved by the full Assembly and signed by the Governor, your only options will be to (1) find a doctor to write an almost impossible-to-get medical vaccine exemption for your child or (2) home school or enroll your child in an independent study program.

There is No Public Health Emergency in California

Unvaccinated school aged children with religious and conscientious belief exemptions are not causing measles and whooping cough outbreaks in California. Out of 136 measles cases reported in the state in 2015, only 18 percent were in school-aged children while 55% were in adults and 30 percent of all cases with vaccine records had been vaccinated. In 2014, out of 8,200 pediatric pertussis cases with vaccination records reported in California, 90 percent had been vaccinated.

The 2015 California measles outbreak associated with Disneyland only affected 0.00035% of the state’s population and was successfully contained without eliminating non-medical vaccine exemptions.

Special Needs Children Being Discriminated Against

Many parents testified in California Senate public hearings that they have vaccine-injured children or have children with brain and immune system problems that could make them especially susceptible to vaccine harm but are unable to find a doctor willing to write a medical vaccine exemption. Those parents depend upon the personal belief vaccine exemption for their special needs children to be educated in public and private schools under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and Free Appropriate Public Education Act (FAPE).

Potential Criminal Prosecution and Prison Time for Non-Complying Parents

The bill’s primary sponsors, pediatrician Richard Pan (D-Sacramento) and Ben Allen (D-Santa Monica) have not publicly explained what will happen if parents refuse to give their school aged child every federally recommended vaccine required by state health officials now or in the future under SB 277. However, if non-complying parents cannot provide their child with a home-based education for financial or other reasons and the children are barred from attending school, truancy laws in California and other states can and do subject parents to costly criminal prosecution and imprisonment.

Californians – participate in our democracy and ACT NOW to protect your vaccine informed consent rights. There is no substitute for one-on-one personal contact with your own Assembly member.

Until next time…

Yours in health,

Dr. T
