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.

Relieve Your Allergies the Natural Way

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

We are in the height of allergy season, so much so that the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) has named the month of May National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month.

It seems that everywhere you turn, people are coughing and sneezing, suffering from one of the most intense allergy seasons we’ve seen in California in many years. I’m hearing from patients and friends who have never had a problem with seasonal allergies, asking me, “What can I do?”  From a constant cough and post-nasal drip to sticky eyes and sneezing, these symptoms just don’t seem to let up.

The Secret to Happy Holidays – Good Digestion!

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

Digestion is the process of converting the food we eat into substances we can use on a cellular level.  Did you know that over 70 percent of your immune system is in your digestive track?   This makes healthy digestion a key element in your overall wellness.

While the tendency is to overindulge during the upcoming holiday season, here are six simple steps you can take for better digestive health:

  1. Chew your food.  Chewing your food well allows your saliva to start breaking down the food for smoother digestion.
  2. Handle stress.  When you’re stressed, the fight-or-flight reaction begins and digestion slows.  Your body shuts down blood flow, which affects digestive muscles.  Take time to relax, breathe deeply, and let go of the stresses in your life.
  3. Get regular exercise.  When you exercise, you support the muscles of your intestines, which maintain regularity.  Exercise helps to reduce stress, supporting healthy digestion.
  4. Take supplements.  I can recommend supplements targeted to your personal needs.  From enzymes to probiotics, we have a full range of food-based nutritional products to support your digestive health.
  5. Stay hydrated.  Drinking pure, fresh water supports regularity and the health of the digestive systems.
  6. Eat more fiber.  Eat a well-balanced diet, and avoid processed foods, sugars and highly refined carbohydrates.  Fiber-rich foods are excellent for digestion.

Our November monthly special is 20% off our complete line of digestive products, including Enzycore, Multizyme and Zypan.   Since digestive challenges can center around enzyme imbalances, adding additional enzymes through whole food supplements can assist the body’s digestion and contribute to overall good health.  Stay healthy and feel great throughout the holiday season with a well-balanced digestive tract!

Until next time…

Chiropractic Can Do What?

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

October is National Chiropractic Health Month —  horaaaayyyyyy!!!  So it’s time to reveal the truth about Chiropractic.

It’s a scientific fact that your brain, spinal cord and nerves control every single thing about your body-breathing, blood flow, digestion, energy level, all organ functions. So, if the nervous system is healthy, you are healthy too. But, what happens if your nervous system becomes unhealthy? Yep-you become unhealthy.

Your nerves can be chafed, stretched, compressed, or irritated where they exit the spine due to a vertebra moving out of place. When this happens, the nerve shuts down and organs can then work overtime or can become weakened and your health suffers.

Your body wants to be healthy but cannot be healthy when your nerves aren’t working correctly. When the bones go out of place you may have pain, but you usually do not, so you cannot tell if you have vertebra out of place by how you feel.

Chiropractic works by restoring proper motion of the spinal bones which reduces nerve irritation. We also work on the other joints to restore normal movement.

More and more people are choosing chiropractic care first — before medicine and surgery.  Chiropractic is safe, natural and works with your body to create health.

Our October monthly special is 50% off your initial Nutrition Response Testing (NRT) appointment.  This is a non-invasive means for testing your body for what nutrients it may be deficient in.  And it’s these deficiencies that cause many of the health conditions people suffer with needlessly, sometimes for years.  Do you have hormone issues like hot flashes and night sweats?  Heart palpitations?  Allergies and skin conditions?   All of these and more can be helped with nutrition.  The regular price for the initial testing is $120, but through October 31, 2015, pay only $60. Call our office to schedule your appointment today.

Until next time…

Yours in health,

It’s Fall Allergy Season.  So What Are You Going to Do About It?

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

Summer is ending, and we’re heading into fall.  You’re sneezing and sniffling all day and into the night. What’s going on?

Odds are you’re among the up to 30% of Americans who suffer from hay fever, or allergic rhinitis. Most cases of hay fever are caused by an allergy to fall pollen from plants belonging to the genus Ambrosia — more commonly known as ragweed.   Pollen from trees and other plants are also known culprits.  And with the dryness caused by California’s record drought, we’re all in for a larger dose than usual.

Allergies occur when the body’s immune system mounts a vigorous response to a foreign substance — in this case, tiny grains of pollen.  Specialized immune cells start churning out antibodies to proteins in the pollen. The ensuing cascade of biochemical reactions floods the bloodstream with histamine, a compound that causes all-too-familiar allergy symptoms.

In addition to sneezing, sniffling, nasal congestion, and sleep disruption, allergies can cause red, puffy eyes, itchy throat, and even hives.

Most over-the-counter and prescription allergy medications do little more than mask the symptoms, drying out sinuses with potential side effect that include fatigue, high blood pressure and more.  What else can you do?

At Thorburn Chiropractic and Wellness Center, we carry a whole food nutritional supplement line featuring specific products to help your body defend itself against allergy season.  For the month of September, we are offering 20% off all of our allergy products, including Allergic, Antronex, Congaplex, Immuplex and Thymex.  Let’s talk about natural alternatives to your specific allergy issues during your next appointment.

And a reminder about Labor Day hours….

Thorburn Chiropractic and Wellness Center will be closed on Monday, September 7 in observation of the Labor Day holiday.  We will be open regular hours for the rest of the week including Friday, September 4 from 9:00 am – 6:00 pm (closed 1:30 – 3:00 pm for lunch) and Saturday, September 5 from 9:00 am – 12 noon.

Until next time…

Yours in health,

Can Chiropractic Really Fix My Irritable Bowel Problems?

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. T:

On Wednesday, July 15, from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m., I will be presenting a free in-office seminar, Can Chiropractic Really Fix My Irritable Bowel Problems?

Do you bloat after eating? Do you have constipation and/or diarrhea? Do you have a lot of gas? Are you uncomfortable in your bowels?

If so, you are one of millions of Americans who suffer from digestive issues. Many just ignore the problem but the remedy may be easier than you think.

Traditional medical treatment for bowel problems is usually medication and, if severe, part of the bowel is surgically removed. As a non-drug practitioner, we look for solutions to heal the bowel so the problem is resolved, not covered up or cut up.

To reserve your free seat at the seminar, call Thorburn Chiropractic and Wellness Center at 818-841-1313. Bring a friend!

And while you’re here, check out our July specials – 20% off all of our digestive products including Multizyme, Zypan and Cataplex AC.

Until next time…
