Get to Know Your Thyroid

It may look like a little pink butterfly, but this powerful gland does a lot for your body.

The thyroid is one of the master glands of your body – “master” in that it controls a number of different processes:

  • detoxification
  • hormonal feedback/progesterone levels
  • regulation of metabolism and metabolic rate
  • mineral balance
  • energy production
  • fatty-acid metabolism.

 

Thyroid imbalances can manifest in a number of wide-ranging symptoms:

  • dry skin, hair, nails
  • fatigue
  • weight gain or weight loss
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • constipation
  • heartburn
  • sinus or throat complaints
  • dizziness
  • cold extremities
  • irregular menstruation (women)
  • joint and muscle pain
  • hoarse voice
  • bulging eyes
  • mental dullness/brain fog
  • low libido
  • insomnia

80% of cases of thyroid imbalances are undetected by conventional blood tests – the BEST way to assess thyroid function is through observation and reaction to treatment.

It is important to get your thyroid checked by Dr. Sheehan, because studies have found that thyroid imbalances (and specifically low thyroid function) are associated with heart disease, infertility, depression, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and osteoporosis.

A lot of time, impaired thyroid function is a compensation for adrenal burnout – they back each other up. Therefore, it is important to take care of yourself to reduce the physical stress upon your body. However, mental and emotional stressors can also burn out the adrenals – so it’s important to take the time to relax and participate in stress-reducing activities such as walking, yoga, and meditation.

Foods that Heal the Thyroid

Sea salt, highly refined vegetable oils, kelp / sea veggies

Foods that Harm the Thyroid

Chlorinated tap water, soy, refined carbs, sugar and high-fructose corn syrup

Weight Loss

As you’re reading this article, about half of the women (and girls!) in America are struggling to lose weight by following diet after diet that just doesn’t work. It’s no wonder that diet and weight loss products are a $40 billion a year industry. But even with all this time and money invested in weight loss, a staggering 65% of Americans are significantly overweight. What’s going wrong?

The solution to weight loss is not going to be found by looking around for the newest fad diet, miracle pill or 5-minute exercise gimmick. You have to look within your own body to unlock the secrets to how you can lose weight quickly and effectively without compromising your health!

Through years of experience of helping people use weight, what I’ve learned is that people who are overweight are struggling with an underlying metabolic or hormonal imbalance that is preventing weight loss. Most people are not even aware of these imbalances. All they know is that no matter what they do, the excess weight doesn’t budge. Many people have seen doctor after doctor, had countless blood tests, and have always been told the same thing – “Nothing seems to be wrong…everything looks just fine.”

At my office, we take the time to understand how your unique body works. We use symptom questionnaires, non-invasive hormonal testing, and kinesiology to uncover your individual biochemical and hormonal imbalances. Often times there are even hidden food allergies and intolerances that are making the struggle to lose weight even more difficult.

Once we understand how your body works, we can then work together to develop a plan to suit your unique needs. We educate you about what strategy will work best for your metabolism – what foods to eat, what type of exercise will maximize fat loss and how often your should be resting to restore your body. We give you the tools to take your health into your own hands and teach you how to lose weight (and inches!) quickly, easily and effectively while maximizing – not compromising – your health.

Sciatica

Getting Past the Pain with a Proven Treatment Plan

Described by many as knife-like pain that may radiate from the back all the way down to the ankles and feet, sciatica is a common condition that affects many Americans. The term “sciatica” is used to describe a set including pain and numbness that may be caused by compression or irritations of nerve roots or the sciatic nerve. Sciatica has several distinctive symptoms including:

  • Pain extending from the lower back, buttock, ankles and feet
  • Pain that is burning and sharp
  • Tingling or crawling sensations
  • Leg numbness

With sciatica, the severity and intensity of pain varies widely from patient to patient. You may experience a constant throbbing or a severe, sharp pain that suddenly lets up for hours or even days. Sometimes postural changes, like lying down or changing positions, affect the pain. In severe cases, sciatica can cause a loss of reflexes or even a wasting of your calf muscles.

If you suffer from sciatica, know that there are a host of effective treatments offered by health professionals that can help you eliminate this pain and live a healthy, active lifestyle.

Let’s take a look at what causes sciatica and to how to treat it.

What causes sciatica?

Patients most frequently first experience sciatica between ages 30 and 50. It’s more commonly related to compression of the lumbar nerves or sacral nerves, but sometimes is caused by the compression of the sciatic nerve itself. It can result from the general wear and tear of aging, degeneration, arthritis, or sudden pressure on the disks that cushion the vertebrae in your lower spine.

How can chiropractic care help treat sciatica?

The good news for sciatica sufferers is that chiropractic care or decompression therapy can be very effective in treatment. Chiropractic care can provide better spinal column alignment, which can help address the underlying factors that cause sciatic nerve pain. As with any course of action, the chiropractic methods used to treat your condition should be highly customized to you specific needs and issues.

How can a holistic health approach help treat sciatica?

I’ve found that patients suffering from sciatica respond very well to a comprehensive, holistic approach to improving their overall health. Through a regular exercise program, you can strengthen your abdominal and back muscles to better support your back and prevent future episodes of pain. Identifying and treating metabolic and biochemical imbalances can also great improve your overall health picture. Finally, diet and nutritional supplementation are considered key treatments for conditions like sciatica.

Headaches & Migraines

Don’t Accept Them; Treat Them with a Holistic Health Approach

Headaches and their more severe counterpart, migraines, can be disruptive to living a productive, active lifestyle. Whether you encounter frequent tension headaches or suffer from recurring debilitating migraines, it’s important to know that there are natural approaches that are powerful and effective in providing relief to headache sufferers.

Tension Headaches

The most common of headaches, tension headaches can be caused by stress, depression, eye strain or lack of sleep. Patients usually report a mild to moderate pain that feels as if there’s a tight band around their head. Tension headaches can last from 30 minutes to an entire week, with some sufferers experiencing chronic pain that affects them nearly all the time. Unlike migraines, tension headaches typically do not cause visual disturbances, weakness or abdominal pain.

Because they’re not as severe as migraines, tension headaches can easily be dismissed as “part of life.” But with so many advancements in treating these conditions from experienced natural health practitioners, a tension headache doesn’t need to be part of your health repertoire.

Migraines

If you’ve experienced the excruciating throb of a migraine, you understand how troublesome these episodes can be to your daily life and relationships. Before the headache even starts, you can experience dizziness, spots before the eyes, nausea and a host of other symptoms that render normal activities nearly impossible. Episodes can last for hours or several days.

In the U.S. alone, an estimated 28 to 32 million people – about 12 percent of the population – suffer from migraines, according to the National Headache Foundation. The condition is more common in women than men. A recent study found that 40 percent of migraine sufferers would benefit from preventative therapies.

Proven Natural Prevention for Headaches and Migraines

For regular headache and migraine sufferers, prevention should be the top priority in seeking treatment. Too often we turn to over-the-counter pain medications that provide little relief and absolutely no promise of preventing future episodes. With increasing evidence supporting the success of nutritional and chiropractic care in treating and preventing headaches and migraines, it’s time to look at this health condition holistically.

What exactly does Gluten-Free mean?

Increasing concern about medical maladies associated with consumption of gluten and a rapidly expanding number of product options are driving double-digital sales for gluten-free food and beverages, according to a new report from Packaged Facts.

For purposes of the study, gluten is defined as including both the proteins gliadin and glutenin found in wheat, and similar proteins found in rye, barley and triticale. Only foods and beverages that are marketed as gluten-free are included (those that are gluten-free by their nature, such as fresh fruit, are excluded).

Awareness and diagnoses of gluten-triggered medical conditions have increased greatly in recent years. The most common is celiac disease, a chronic inflammatory disorder of the small intestine estimated by experts to affect up to 1% of the U.S. population. Allergic reactions to gluten can also contribute to autism, multiple sclerosis, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, repetitive strain or stress injury, and irritable bowel syndrome.

For most of the population, eating gluten is a normal part of everyday life, but for those suffering from celiac disease or a wheat allergy, gluten can wreak havoc on the body, often in surprising ways. Gluten effects the digestive system of the afflicted person, most notably the small intestine – where most nutrients are absorbed – and prevents these nutrients from being absorbed by the body. This mal-absorption can manifest in many different, often unexpected, ways such as stomach pain, digestive pain, weight loss, bloating, lethargy, even depression, migraines, hormonal imbalances and mood swings. Not every person has the same symptoms which can often lead to misdiagnosis and improper treatment.

The only way to “treat” celiac disease or wheat allergies is to adopt a gluten-free diet. Although this may seem overwhelming at first, many people find that a gluten-free lifestyle is easily manageable with dedication, support and a little creativity. There’s a whole world of delicious gluten-free foods out there!

Fibromyalgia

An Effective, Holistic Approach to Overcoming Fibromyalgia

For those suffering from fibromyalgia, an elusive chronic pain condition, pain, fatigue and sleeplessness are part of everyday life. Adding to the frustration, the exact root and cure for fibromyalgia continues to elude the medical community. Fortunately, many patients are discovering that recovery from fibromyalgia is possible with a natural, holistic approach to overall health.

More commonly diagnosed in women than men, fibromyalgia is a chronic pain condition that affects the upper and low, left and right parts of the body. In addition to varying levels of pain in certain “tender points” throughout the body, patients often experience a wide range of symptoms, from anxiety and depression to sleeplessness. Research has shown that physical, emotional and environmental stressors can impact the severity of these troublesome symptoms.

For fibromyalgia sufferers, the questions regarding treatment far outweigh any definitive answers. Medications now prescribed by the traditional medical community have received mixed reviews and often present undesirable side effects. In my experience, I’ve found that those suffering from fibromyalgia can make tremendous strides in getting to the source of their pain and discomfort through a natural, holistic healing approach.

At Sheehan Chiropractic, our natural healing approach begins with an evaluation of your body type. We use HRV and applied kinesiology to uncover weaknesses and imbalances to determine where the nervous system is being disturbed. Based on this insight, we can design a holistic healing approach customized to work for your unique body type for better results. Your plan may include a customized diet, detoxification, acupressure, natural supplements or chiropractic adjustments. Time and time again, we see clients with fibromyalgia go from a life of pain and fatigue to a life of renewed energy and relief when they follow our natural approach to healing.

If you suffer from fibromyalgia, don’t wait another day to call us. Let today be the day you find a more effective, natural way to overcome your pain and get back to living life to its fullest.

Female Hormonal Problems

Menopause, PMS, infertility, endometriosis – throughout the course of a woman’s life, it’s likely that she will encounter a health concern that exclusively affects women. The good news? Today, with the knowledge and guidance of natural health practitioners, women can take control and alleviate these conditions naturally and effectively.

For many, the treatments offered by traditional medicine do not always address the common cause of these issues – female hormonal imbalance. Not to be underestimated, a regime based on a healthful diet, regular exercise and the use of natural treatments can help you regain your energy, decrease pain and enjoy life to its fullest.

Let’s take a look at some of the underlying causes of women health issues and what you can do today to make a difference…

Understanding Estrogen Balance in Women

While no two women’s bodies are the exactly the same, there is undisputable link between women-exclusive health concerns and estrogen balance. An imbalance in the ratio of progesterone to estrogen, called “estrogen dominance,” is a common link in health issues including PMS, endometriosis, menopause and infertility.

Estrogen is produced in the ovaries, adrenals and fat cells of the body. Stress, a diet high in refined sugar and carbs, stimulant usage and excess body fat all can contribute to an increase in estrogen.

Different Women, Different Conditions Linked by Hormonal Imbalance

Take two very different women, both with serious health concerns at different stages of their lives.

Bridget is a 32-year-old woman whose art career has taken her all over the globe. Debilitating menstruation, pelvic pain and painful intercourse led her to seek medical help. The diagnosis was endometriosis, a mysterious condition that can lead to abdominal scarring and infertility. Hormone-blocking medications, all with their own set of issues, or surgery were among the treatments recommended by her doctor. Still, Bridget dreaded the thought of depending on medication or surgical intervention without exploring other options.

Susan is a 54-year-old woman who has always lived a socially active life – volunteering in her community, getting together with friends and maintaining a full-time job. Recently, menopausal symptoms – hot flashes, changes in mood and lack of energy – have had negative effects on Susan’s busy life. She hopes to alleviate these symptoms naturally – and fast.

Both Bridget and Susan are living with conditions that result from female hormonal imbalance. Excessive estrogen is causing endometrial tissue to form outside Bridget’s uterus. Susan’s progesterone levels have dipped significantly during menopause, creating a hormonal imbalance.

A Natural, Effective Plan for Better Health

Bridget and Susan – and anyone suffering from a health condition caused by female hormonal imbalance – can take control of their health naturally and effectively.

As mentioned above, stress on adrenal glands – caused by weight, emotional stress, poor diet, ingested chemicals and more – can trigger excess estrogen production.

A diet overhaul can help decrease adrenal stress and the symptoms of female hormonal imbalance. A low-glycemic diet of organic, unrefined foods – with plenty of lean protein, vegetables and fruits – will help balance estrogen production in the adrenals. Exercise is also a critical component of this action plan. Just 20 minutes a day, three times a week can help with weight management and elevate a woman’s mood.

Natural nutrition supplements and treatments are also recommended. Taking the best of what’s found in nature, these treatments work in harmony with a woman’s body for holistic health. Dr. Sheehan can develop a plan customized for your specific condition, concerns and lifestyle.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)

“Since being treated by Dr. Keith my energy level has really gone up. I go to exercise classes and walk every day. I get to go to all my grandkids games. I feel like going out with my friends. I feel happy once again. And best of all, my entire mind is clear. I’m learning to eat better and healthier.

K.D., Columbia

Have you felt fatigued for six months or more?

The Center for Disease Control estimates that over half a million American adults suffer chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS)

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a flu-like condition that can drain your energy and, sometimes, last for years. People previously healthy and full of energy may experience a variety of signs and symptoms similar to those of most common viral infections. Unlike flu (influenza) symptoms, which usually subside in a few days or weeks, the signs and symptoms of CFS can last much longer. They may come and go frequently with no identifiable pattern.

How Do I Know if I Have CFS?

In addition to persistent fatigue, not caused by other known medical conditions, chronic fatigue syndrome has eight possible primary signs and symptoms, including:

  • Loss of memory or concentration
  • Sore throat
  • Painful and mildly enlarged lymph nodes in your neck or armpits
  • Unexplained muscle soreness
  • Pain that moves from one joint to another without swelling or redness
  • Headache of a new type, pattern or severity
  • Sleep disturbance
  • Extreme exhaustion lasting more than 24 hours after physical or mental exercise

According to the International Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Study Group – a group of scientists, researchers and doctors brought together by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to determine a standard method for defining and diagnosing chronic fatigue syndrome – a person meets the diagnostic criteria of chronic fatigue syndrome when unexplained persistent fatigue occurs for six months or more along with at least four of the eight primary signs and symptoms. In addition, many signs and symptoms have been reported by CFS sufferers that are not on the official list.

I have CFS, and have found very little that helps me. What should I do?

Do you wonder why you have many severe symptoms, with no clear cause? If you have CFS or a CFS-like syndrome, there is natural help available. Many people like you have recovered using a natural health improvement program.

A Holistic Approach to Treating CFS
Too often, the response from conventional medicine is to treat the condition using various medications. What’s often missing from the equation is a comprehensive analysis of the many factors that cause your immune system to react the way it does. Without this knowledge, you suffer needlessly with trial-and-error approaches that do not get to the root of the problem.

At Sheehan Chiropractic, we believe it’s absolutely essential to take the time to understand our patients’ unique conditions, symptoms and reactions to outside factors. Whether you’ve chosen to undergo traditional medical treatment or are looking for alternative to medications, you can benefit from the holistic approach we take to understanding your condition.

Here are just a few of the factors we evaluate to develop a customized treatment plan for you:

Food Allergies. Allergic reactions to the foods we consume can have severe results, and research suggests food allergies are far more common then we may recognize. For example, upward of 97% of patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome have been shown to have gluten intolerances.

Heavy Metal Toxicity. The practitioner must consider the significance of possible heavy metal exposure and its lasting effects on the body, for clients of all ages. Exposure to heavy metals is shown to magnify the effects of gluten sensitivity, and adversely affect the nervous system and immune system.

Chemical Toxicity. Commercially-produced chemicals can also have a significant influence on your body’s immune system.

Adrenal Dysfunction. Stress, poor nutrition and frequent infections can weaken your adrenal glands, causing further symptomatic complications associated with your Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Electromagnetic Imbalances. Electromagnetic influences are found everywhere in today’s society and can have a profound effect on your health and specific condition.

Biochemistry. By evaluating your organ function, enzyme and bowel flora production and correcting any structural imbalances, we can help improve the functioning of your nervous system with treatments that may include laser and nutritional therapy, and gentle chiropractic adjustments.

Being diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome can be difficult to accept and cope with. But with the guidance, support and implementation of our customized program, we’ve experienced remarkable success rates and have seen patients regain their normal lives and sense of well-being.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

A Non-Surgical Approach to Treating This Manual Condition

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a common condition affecting an estimated 4 to 10 million Americans. Characterized by a tingling, pain or numbness in the hands, wrists or fingers, carpal tunnel can make everyday tasks difficult and can be exacerbated by repetitive motion. Fortunately, if you suffer from carpal tunnel, there are many effective treatments that do not require major medical intervention or surgery.

Think you may be suffering from carpal tunnel? Let’s take a look at what it is, what causes it and how we can help you stop the pain.

What is carpal tunnel syndrome?

Carpal tunnel syndrome commonly affects people who use their hands and wrists for long periods of time. A common work-related condition, it frequently affects assembly line workers, carpenters, musicians and office professionals.

The pain can be very minimal at first with a tingling or numbing sensation in the hands, wrists and fingers. It can gradually worsen, with severe sufferers reporting symptoms that include difficulty grasping objects, an inability to decipher between hot or cold and difficulty performing regular manual tasks.

What causes carpal tunnel syndrome?

Carpal tunnel occurs when a nerve originating in the neck – called the median nerve – becomes compressed and causes pain. Most people have one or more kinks, called subluxations, in their median nerve. These blockages keep the nerve from communicating effectively with the rest of the body. The number and severity of the kinks often impact the severity of your symptoms.

A Holistic Approach to Treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

Too often, conventional medicine only addresses the subluxation or kink in the wrist, leaving the others to continue to plague the patient. It’s kind of like being in a sinking ship with many holes in it and plugging only one of the holes and expecting the ship to stay afloat. If you’re looking for lasting relief from carpal tunnel syndrome, a comprehensive approach to treating all of the problems with the median nerve is the best course of action.

Fortunately, the subluxations are relatively easy to treat with appropriate, comprehensive chiropractic care. Healing often begins with the first chiropractic treatment which often includes soft tissue manipulation. With regular chiropractic treatment, customized to treat your specific needs and issues, we’ll be able to reduce nerve irritation, without the need for drugs or surgery. And you’ll be able to regain the full functioning of your hands for whatever life throws at you!

Back & Neck Pain

Back and Neck Pain – Stop the Suffering

When used to describe someone, the term “pain in the neck” isn’t usually a compliment – and there’s a reason for that. Neck pain affects 50% of people at some point during their lifetime. Even more prevalent, back pain affects 85% of people during their lifetime. Both afflictions can range anywhere from a mild aching to a severe, debilitating pain. No matter the degree of your suffering, it’s important to know that there are effective, clinically-proven ways to alleviate your pain and regain a sense of well-being.

Back Pain

At any one time, 6.8 percent of the U.S. adult population is suffering from an episode of back pain lasting more than two weeks. With its widespread impact, it’s no wonder that low back pain has been estimated to cost the U.S. economy over $50 billion a year.

What causes low back pain?

Low back pain is caused by many factors – and sometimes it’s a combination of several issues. Structural misalignments, degeneration, arthritis, bulging discs, pinched nerves or inflammation and swelling from injuries are all popular culprits in creating low back pain.

Neck Pain

Like low back pain, neck pain is often the result of several factors or issues at play – all creating discomfort that can be disruptive to your everyday life.

What causes neck pain?

Neck pain is often attributed to irritation of cervical nerve roots, minor disc bulges, swelling from injuries or arthritis. In an age when many of us spend an unnatural amount of time hunched over a computer, it’s no wonder that poor posture and reduced curve of the vertebrae of the neck are also commonly cited for creating neck pain.

What’s interesting is that in clinical studies, there seems to be a lack in correlation between some structural changes – like arthritis and bulging discs – and neck pain. And, with mounting evidence pointing toward biochemical and metabolic changes playing a larger role in neck pain and its related symptoms, it’s more important than ever that individuals suffering from neck pain treat the condition holistically.

A Better Approach to Alleviating Back and Neck Pain

Standard treatments for both conditions may include physical therapy, drugs or even surgery. What’s often missing from traditional medical approaches are the powerful, natural remedies that bring relief without drastic measures. Many back and neck pain sufferers can achieve substantial pain relief from the right combination of a healthy diet, exercise, nutritional supplementation and structural realignments.
