Eat More Fish for a Healthy Heart

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

Here’s another National Heart Health Month challenge. Join me in pledging to eat more fish for a healthy heart!

A recent study in the New England Journal of Medicine offers good evidence that eating several servings of fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids each week may reduce the risk of heart disease and death. The study was conducted by researchers from Brigham and Woman’s Hospital in Boston, and it compared 94 men who died suddenly from heart disease with 184 healthy men.

They discovered that men without heart disease were 81 percent less likely to experience sudden death if they had high levels of omega-3 fatty acids in their blood, regardless of other risk factors such as age or smoking habits.

Found in fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel, and trout, omega-3 fatty acids are believed to lower the risk of developing an irregular heart rhythm and to reduce blood cholesterol and clotting.  More and more studies are finding there is a reverse association between fish intake and heart disease in women and men.

You also need to weigh the value of purchasing wild caught over farmed fish.

Farmed fish are typically raised in tight, dark quarters, hence the need to feed farmed salmon food coloring to give them the red color we expect. Read any farmed salmon package and you will see food coloring on the label. As if that isn’t bad enough, farmed fish are most often fed GMO-laden gruel that includes antibiotics to keep them from getting sick in these unnatural conditions.

Wild caught fish are natural and contain all the nutrients nature intended.

Fish oil supplements can be an effective option, but be sure to choose a reputable brand that promises fish oil from pristine waters that is tested for purity and strength.

Specials for the month of February 2017… During Heart Health Month, so we are featuring products that nourish the heart as well as another very important organ, the thyroid.  These products are all 20% off for the month of February only.

For the heart, we have Cardiotrophin PMG (supports the heart and cardiovascular system), Cardio-Plus (Supports healthy coronary blood flow) and E-Manganese (contains manganese, an important cofactor for numerous enzymatic reactions).

For the thyroid, there is Cataplex E (healthy thyroid function), Nutrimere (healthy cell function and anti-aging), Organically Bound Minerals (encourages healthy enzyme and thyroid function), Thytrophin PMG (unique profile of minerals, nucleotides, and peptides to help thyroid function, and Prolamine Iodine (thyroid function).

Ask us about Nutrition Deficiency Testing (NDT) a non-invasive means of testing the body to determine the underlying causes of health issues and Science Based Nutrition lab work, including hair analysis, to help determine your nutritional needs.

Until next time…

Yours in health,

An Avocado a Day May Help Keep Heart Disease Away

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

February is National Heart Health Month. Join me in making one healthy change per week that can lead toward preventing heart disease. Here’s a healthy and delicious suggestion you might want to try.

Avocados. For years, this nutritious green fruit (yes, they are a fruit, not a vegetable) has been avoided by many due to its high-fat content.  According to a study in the Journal of the American Heart Association, eating one avocado a day as part of a heart healthy, cholesterol-lowering moderate-fat diet can help improve bad cholesterol levels.

Researchers evaluated the effect avocados had on cardiovascular risk factors by replacing saturated fatty acids from an average American diet with unsaturated fatty acids from avocados. In other words, avocado fat is healthy fat, and the luscious green fruit is also one of the best natural sources of potassium.

Perhaps you are accustomed to eating avocados only in the form of guacamole, which pairs the fruit with chips that are usually fried and high in sodium.

A healthier way to enjoy an avocado is in a green salad, on a sandwich with low-fat protein and high fiber bread, with a vegetable dish, with lean protein foods like chicken or fish, or just sliced in half and scooped out with a spoon.

Specials for the month of February 2017… During Heart Health Month, so we are featuring products that nourish the heart as well as another very important organ, the thyroid.  These products are all 20% off for the month of February only.

Back Pain and Mental Health

Posted on Updated on

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

An article in Medical News Today discussed a study of almost 200,000 participants. It was found that individuals who have back pain are more likely to experience a range of mental health conditions. Back pain and mental health problems?

Back pain is the leading cause of disability around the world. According to the Global Burden of Disease study, lower back pain affects almost one in 10 people. Back pain reduces the quality of life and increases the risk of other health problems. And mental health is just one of them.

Back pain is the most common issue I hear about from my patients.

You don’t have to live with pain and discomfort. I have many natural ways to not only alleviate that pain but to also heal the problem that is causing the pain.

Give us a call and come in for an evaluation so that we can start on a course of treatment that will get you out of pain and your back in tip top condition.

You’ll be glad you did!

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,

Vitamins – Are You Wasting Your Money?

Posted on

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.

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.

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/.
