Inflammation

I Eat Healthy, So I’m OK….

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

You think because you eat a healthy diet, you are OK. On any given day, you basically feel pretty good. You exercise a few times a week, drink a good amount of water each day, and limit sugar and alcohol consumption. And you even quit smoking a few years ago so…life is fine.

But think again. With today’s nutritionally-depleted food supply and a 1500-2500 calorie a day diet, there is no way you can get the nutrients you need, even if your food is 100 percent organic. And if you eat out in restaurants at all – and who doesn’t – the food might be yummy but you just don’t know what quality of nutrients you are getting.

And then there are GMOs – Genetically Modified Organisms. GMOs are found in up to 80% of the food sold in American supermarkets. GMOs are the result of a laboratory process where genes from the DNA of one species are extracted and artificially forced into the genes of an unrelated plant or animal. The reason for these lab-created hybrids is to make it easier for farmers to control weeds and pests and to produce a larger yield in less time. As for their long-term effect on human health, no one is certain.

So, what is your body lacking?  What supplements should you take?  And how much? What can you do to make sure you stay healthy and feeling great well into your senior years?

We have two simple ways to test your body and find out exactly what you are missing.

Nutrition Deficiency Testing (NDT) is a non-invasive means of testing the body to determine the underlying causes of health issues. When these are corrected through safe nutritional means, the body often can repair and rebuild itself.

We are now also offering Science Based Nutrition lab work, including hair analysis, to help determine your nutritional needs. Combining this with NDT gives you the best chance to heal and save money by taking only the supplements you really need.

At Thorburn Chiropractic and Wellness Center, we have a full line of whole food supplements that we highly recommend.  Call our office to make your first appointment for NDT and Science Based Nutrition lab work and get started on a healthier you!

Through January 31, 2017, enjoy a healthy discount on some of our premier detox programs! Detoxing isn’t the same as fasting.  During a detox, you replace unhealthy food and drink with nutritious ones that have a cleansing and healing effect on certain conditions. With all of these programs, you will be enjoying delicious, healthy foods, whole food shakes, and taking whole food supplements.

First is our Blood Sugar 10-Day Program, regularly $152, now only $122.  Lab tests have proven participant’s blood sugar readings come down to normal levels on this program.

Second is our Female Vitality 10-Day Program, regularly $144 – $187, now only $112 – $150 (depending upon if you are pre or post menopause).  Getting your hormones under control can make you feel more energetic, calm, alive, and happy.  Monthly hormonal fluctuations can lead to mood swings, hot flashes, cramps, fatigue, food cravings, poor sleep, and irritability.

The third is our Inflammation 10-Day Program, regularly $146, now just $117. Inflammation can be obvious when you have pain. Or perhaps you have been told that you have an inflammatory condition. Inflammation can be the source of fatigue, skin problems, joint stiffness, dark circles under the eyes, sinus congestion, irregular bowel, bloating, and water retention.

Ask us about any of these and other highly-effective programs to get you on the road towards a healthier New Year!

Until next time…

Yours in health,

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

The New Year is upon us, a time when many people are motivated by the sense of new beginnings to launch their long-desired quest towards better health.  Whatever your personal health goals may be, adding one or more high-quality whole food supplements that your body truly needs to your daily regime can make a huge difference in your overall well-being.

Certain whole food supplements also have a healing effect. Do you have frequent headaches?  Stomach problems? PMS?  Allergies?  Rashes?  Trouble sleeping?  These and many other chronic issues are often alleviated with targeted nutrition.

What Vaccinations Do You Really Need?

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

Vaccination is one of the most controversial health issues of our time. Last year, the state of California passed Senate Bill 277 requiring all children who attend public or private schools in the state to be fully vaccinated. We are constantly reminded to get a flu shot, a pneumonia shot, a shingles vaccination, etc.

A new online documentary series, Vaccines Revealed, features leading medical experts weighing in on all types of vaccinations and where they stand on whether or not they are necessary for any or all of us.

This exclusive documentary series is about to be unveiled for free viewing beginning this week —  January 10th – 18th. You’ll discover the most cutting-edge news and just released evidence from over twenty of the world’s authorities and experts.

You owe it to yourself to make informed choices about your personal healthcare.  To view the series, visit http://www.vaccinesrevealed.com/landingii/.

Gut on Fire!

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

The sensation of having your gut on fire is no laughing matter. The pain, discomfort, fatigue and stress that stomach burning may cause can make daily life miserable. Unfortunately, gut on fire is an all too common problem due to indigestible, inorganic foods, over use of antibiotics, chlorinated water and the like.

You may not experience a lot of the symptoms in the early stages, yet the inflammation can lead to disorders including autoimmune conditions.

What is gut on fire?

Your small bowel is full of live organisms. There is a constant balancing act at work in your gut. If it becomes extremely unbalanced, your gut can become inflamed and/or you can develop what is called leaky gut as a result of eating foods that are hard for you to digest.

For example, if you have sensitivity to gluten and eat a meal containing bread or pasta, these foods can be your trigger. Painful gas and inflammation develop and your stomach churns, taking the nutrients in your food and sending them out of your body before they are properly digested.

After a time, tiny tears can occur in your intestines that cause proteins to leak into your bloodstream, potentially leading to colitis, diverticulitis, edema and bloating.

Many people have what may look like a fat or distended tummy which turns out to not be fat at all, but rather gas and inflammation.

Gut on fire can also cause fuzzy brain, poor memory, dizziness and forgetfulness.

It’s very important to keep your tummy happy!  Live probiotics can balance the organisms naturally occurring in your gut.  Don’t be deceived by commercial yogurts advertising that they contain live probiotics, while at the same time they are loaded with sugars that render them virtually useless to your system. Your body needs pure, live probiotics to repopulate your gut and relieve that gassy, burning sensation.

July is Digestion Awareness Month…and we have specials!  During the month of July, we have several digestive products on sale for 20% off from Standard Process, a wonderful line of nutritional supplements available only through doctors.

Products on special include Multizyme (digestive enzyme), Betaine Hydrochloride (digestive enzyme), Lact-Enz (digestive enzyme, probiotic),ProSynbiotic (probiotic), Whole Food Fiber, Chlorophyll Complex (soothes an inflamed gut) and Cataplex A-C (helps heal the lining of the gut).

Ask me which product is best for you!

Until next time…

Yours in health,

Dr. T

Could it be What’s on Your Fork?

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

When is an allergy not an allergy at all?  When it is a food sensitivity.

Food sensitivities can result in symptoms such as headaches, dark circles under the eyes, nasal congestion not associated with pollens, sore throats, aches and pains, fatigue and even a “fuzzy” brain.

While it’s not an allergy in the usual sense, it is a chemical change in the body that affects you.   Allergies and food sensitivities are both immune systems issues.

Food sensitivities can be difficult to determine and diagnose, mostly because we Americans eat such a wide variety of foods each day.  Dairy products, eggs, peanuts, shellfish, gluten, corn, soy, sugar, corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, beef, pork, lamb and coffee are common foods that cause food sensitivities.  But we humans are all very individual, so we can be sensitive to just about any food group.

Through a non-invasive screening process called Nutrition Deficiency Testing, we can determine what it is that is stressing your system so you can eliminate that particular food from your diet and relieve your chronic symptoms.

Call our office today to find out about our special offer for your first test to see if you have food sensitivities.

Natural allergy solutions on sale during May, National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month … Are you suffering with season allergies?  I recommend a line of natural supplements, available only through doctors, called Standard Process that features a number of products which are extremely effective for the relief of allergies.

Throughout the month of May 2016, I’m offering allergy relief and respiratory products Allerplex, Antronex, Cal-Amo, Drenamin, Emphaplex, Fen-Gre and Pneumotrophin PMG all for 20% off!

Which of these is best for you?  The next time you are in the office, tell me about your allergy issues and I’ll get you on the natural road to allergy freedom!

Until next time…

To Improve Your Health, Focus on Nutrition

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

If you are eating what you believe to be a healthy diet, exercising regularly, taking what supplements you think you need and still not seeing improvements in your cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar, energy, etc., don’t despair. A recent report in The FASEB (Federation of the American Societies for Experimental Biology) Journal suggests that inflammation induced by vitamin and mineral deficiencies may be the culprit. 1 In this report, researchers showed that in some people, when nutritional deficiencies are corrected, improvement results in many of the major markers of good health. Some even lost weight without a change in their diet or levels of activity.

So how do you find out what nutrients your body really needs? One of the best ways we believe is available at Thorburn Chiropractic and Wellness Center. It’s called Nutrition Deficiency Testing. This non-invasive form of testing the body and seeing exactly what it may be lacking is quick and effective.

We also carry a line of dietary supplements that are head and shoulders above the rest and are only available through a doctor’s office. Each supplement is made from organic ingredients and formulated to address specific nutritional deficiencies.

Spring is a time for awakening and change. It’s a great time to take a look at your overall health and make some positive, forward movement. It’s never too late to take care of yourself. Start with today!
