What You Need to Know About Heartburn

Heartburn is a common complaint we see. Here’s what you need to know about how to help with heartburn.

Here are somethings you need to know about heartburn:

1. The person has to get down their refined food.
To distress the digestive tract and liver. Especially flour and grain products as well as sugars. If you’re not a real athlete, then you need to get your carb count down to about 70 per day. All that extra sugar and processed carbs will be tough on the digestive tract and it’s also difficult for the liver to process. And the liver is very important in handling heartburn.

2. Identifying and handling any kind of food intolerance.
The top ones we see are grains, refined sugars, and pasteurized dairy. Even if people don’t show up with these problems initially in the testing, it’ll tend to show up down the road. It’s better to cut them out.

3. Check all the digestive organs, to see which one is not responding properly using NRT.
The main ones you’ll see with heartburn is liver and gallbladder problems, not stomach. This is because we consume processed carbohydrates that are very toxic to your liver.

4. Supplements for the liver include:
Livaplex. For the gallbladder we mainly use Choline, AF Betafood, and Cholacol.

5. The second most common organ you see come up with heart burn is the stomach.
You’re going to use the acid and enzyme point in NRT protocol. With the acid point, use Zypan or D-Diges supplements. For the enzyme point we use Mulitzyme and Lactenz. If it’s bad enough and the person is not getting better, you can also text for Gastrex and Okra Pepsin E3 which will put out the fire in the stomach

6. The 3rd most common organ seen in Heartburn is the large intestine.
This is because when you don’t digest your food it goes down into the large intestine and ferments there which puts a lot of pressure on the kidney to detoxify which contributes to heart burn. If a person is constipated enough, the food can’t come down and it’ll stay in the stomach too long and cause heartburn,

7. Supplements to take for constipation are first Fenco and choline for liver and large intestine drainage.
If these don’t work you look at Colax.

8. If there is no constipation then you’re looking at a bowel flora problem.
Which then you’d use Zymex, Lactic Acid Yeast, Lact-Enz, Spanish Black Radish, Garlic, Pro Symbiotic, and Gut Flora Complex.
If you handle the three main causes of refined carb intake, food sensitivities, organ dysfunction, and proper supplementation, then in 95% of cases with heartburn will be about 95% better in about a month or two.

Blood Sugar Issues & Lab Testing

One of the things we are most passionate about here at Sheehan Natural Health Improvement Center is proper blood sugar balance.

Why?

Because it is the foundation of any natural healing program.

Even slightly dysfunctional blood sugar balance is the major cause of arthritis, heart disease, kidney disease, diabetes, Lyme disease, all autoimmune disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, allergies, asthma, cancer, and the list goes on and on.

Among other things, blood sugar dysregulation causes chronic inflammation, immune system depression, estrogen dominance, tumor growth, liver toxicity and thyroid suppression.

Whew!

When dealing with any condition, it is of utmost importance that we make sure blood sugar regulation is optimal.

Most people respond with one of two questions:

  1. “How do I know if I have blood sugar issues?”

or

  1. “My doctor says that my blood sugar is normal.”

 

To answer the first question, keep reading for exact instructions!

But to answer the second question, I say:  That’s not good enough knowing what we know now about science.  A fasting glucose level does not reflect what happens after you eat, or what blood sugar and inflammation is like day-to-day and long-term.

If you have any of the following problems, blood sugar issues are probably involved.

It would benefit you to follow the instructions at the end of the article.

  1. Overweight
  2. Your waist if over 35” if you’re a female, or 40” if you’re a male.
  3. You have one or more of the following positive lab tests:
    1. Fasting blood sugar over 85
    2. H1AC over 4.5
    3. Fasting insulin over 3
    4. Triglycerides over 80
    5. HDL under 55
    6. High blood pressure
  4. You have chronic pain
  5. You have an autoimmune condition
  6. You have a chronic infection (like Epstein Barr or Lyme)
  7. You have any hormonal problems, such as thyroid dysfunction, low testosterone, or estrogen imbalance.
  8. You have fertility issues
  9. You have polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

If you have any of the above (or if you want to just see where you stand), here’s the complete list of tests you need to run.

I’ve listed the optimum values next to them.  Keep in mind when you get lab tests back, they often have ranges that they say are “normal” next to them.

“Normal” to a lab means “not pathological”, or “not diseased.”  This is not “optimal.”  We want optimal lab tests for optimum function.

  • Fasting blood glucose-75-85
  • Fasting insulin-below 3
  • H1AC-below 4.5
  • Triglyceride-70-80
  • HDL-over 55
  • CRP or hs-CRP (tells about inflammation in your body)-under 1
  • Sed rate or ESR (non-specific test that also tells about inflammation)-under 6

You can retest the ones that come back abnormal every 1-3 months to see what kind of progress you are making.

There’s two ways to get these tests:

  1. You can ask your doctor to write you a script. Make sure that if they do, they include ALL of the tests!  Most doctors will only order a basic profile, or what the insurance pays for.  This is not good enough if you want optimum health.

 

  1. Call my office and we’ll be happy to write you a script for them. We even deal with a co-op lab call PCS that is about 5-10X cheaper than a “regular” lab (“regular” labs have a 500% mark up on average!)  This is really important because then you can retest your labs every 1-3 months to see how you improve!  Win!

After you get your lab tests back, what do you do about it?  In a nutshell, here’s what you do:

  1. Get your daily total carb intake below 70 – It might take a month or so to make this change, you can slowly ease in to it.
  2. Increase your fibrous veggies to 6-10 servings per day. Fibrous veggies are the low carb kind, like lettuce, kale, brussel sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, etc. Minimize starchy veggies like potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, beans, legumes, etc.
  3. Make sure you have a handful of fats, like nuts and seeds, each meal.
  4. Eat a serving of protein the size of your palm at each meal.
  5. Eat 3 meals per day, no snacking. That being said, if you must snack, snack on fats like nuts and seeds.
  6. Call our office to come in for a free nutrition class and free initial visit so that we can identify any food intolerances, immune challenges, nutritional deficiencies or organ dysfunctions that might be linked to your blood sugar and/or inflammation issues.

 

I hope this short article clears up exactly how to properly evaluate blood sugar disturbances and systemic inflammation.  Like always, for more information, visit our website at SheehanNaturalHealth.com, look us up on Facebook, or check out our YouTube channel for additional tips on how to eat!

Cold and Flu Protocol

This time of year, lots of patients ask me, “What do I take when I’m sick?”  Of course, the correct answer is “we test you, then tell you what your body wants, and you get better quickly.”  However, when you’re getting sick, time is of the essence.  When you first start to feel symptoms, the bacteria or virus making you sick is actually at a very low count.  However, that viral/bacterial count tends to increase quickly exponentially, and by the time people get here to get tested, they’ve got a full-blown cold or flu.  So this is what you take while you’re driving to the office to get properly tested.

These are supplements that everyone should have in abundance at home (have a big bottle of each), and take at the very first sign of illness. Do not wait until you are “sick”!  Take them when you think “I wonder if I’m coming down with something?”  By the time you think “I’m sick”, it’s too late, and it’s going to take time to get better.  An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! A stitch in time saves nine!  And so on…

  1. As always, stop eating sugar! Sugar is known to weaken your immune system response 50-90% for 4-6 hours after you take it!  Do not eat sugar or refined carbohydrates while you’re fighting a cold!  For that matter, considering sugar and refined carbs suppress your immune system (whilst causing other problems!), why not cut it out altogether?  And no, fruit is not a refined sugar as long as you don’t juice it, so you don’t have to avoid it (unless you’re on a very low carb diet for blood sugar/weight issues, which is a whole other topic altogether-see one of my many videos on carbs and diet).
  2. Wash your hands with soap often. Viruses and bacteria, amongst other things, like to hang out on our hands.  Wash them thoroughly and often to fight them effectively.
  3. Get enough sleep. Lack of sleep raises stress hormones which suppresses your natural immune response, and makes your insulin less sensitive-a one two punch to get you sick a lot!
  4. Drink enough water. This is just good old advice from Grandma (who lived to be 105 years old, so I listened when she talked!). I’m not sure why this works, other than thatit helps to detoxify your kidneys, which can’t be bad for your immune system.
  5. Eat lots of veggies. Full of vitamins and minerals, veggies really support your immune system.
  6. Work out regularly. Regular exercises boosts your immune function.
  7. Congaplex. This is the most broad-based immune system support. It supports your body in fighting bacteria and viruses alike.  Take 3 every half hour until you feel all better, then take 6/day for 2 weeks to rebuild your immune system.  Don’t skip this step, or cut down Congaplex too quickly!  My patients often tell me that they were started to feel better, cut down their Congaplex, and then got sick again!  Don’t be that person!
  8. Antronex. This doubles your liver’s filtration rate, so that your body rapidly cleans out the debris that you make when you kill off bacteria and viruses. It basically makes you feel better faster. Take 2 every half hour until you feel all better, then take 6/day for 2 weeks to rebuild your immune system, like Congaplex.

Now I know what you’re saying:  “What about Echinacea, Andrographis, vitamin C, Zinc, Immuplex, etc.?”  Hey, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with these supplements, and often these supplements kick butt!  Often after examining a patient, I will recommend these rather than Congaplex and Antronex, but remember, I’m talking about what you can take while driving to my office.  So keep a bottle of Congaplex and Antronex at home on the shelf, take them as I described above at the first sign of cold or flu, and in the meantime make an appointment to see your holistic doctor.

Both of these supplements are water soluble, so taking little bits every ½ hour is vastly more effective than taking handfuls of them infrequently.  Keep a large bottle of each at home instead of waiting until you’re coming down with something to pick them up.

The 10 Commandments of Chiropractic and Nutrition

Do you ever notice how sometimes your chiropractic adjustments just don’t “hold” as well as other ones?  You get adjusted, and feel better for a day, or a few hours, but the pain comes back?  If this sounds like you, then listen up to the Top 10 Chiropractic Nutrition Commandments!

  1. Don’t eat processed sugar! Everyone knows that sugar is bad for you (yes, even a little bit), but what most people don’t know is that sugar is terribly inflammatory, in other words, it will cause you not to hold your adjustments!  Cut it out!
  2. Cut way way back on all grains! Grains turn to sugar in your body very quickly, causing inflammation.  Most people are slightly to severely sensitive to grains, meaning that they don’t process them well in their body, creating more inflammation. Grains also tend to aggravate autoimmune conditions. Lastly, grains turn to sugar so quickly in the body that they tend to feed the “bugs” in our body, such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites.  Scientists are now finding out that chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and all autoimmune diseases are linked to a chronic infection in the body.  Cutting out grains helps fight these infections.
  3. Cut out (or way way down) on pasteurized dairy. Pasteurized dairy is very difficult for the body to process.  Cutting way down on it helps with many problems, such as the inability to hold adjustments, asthma, skin conditions, allergies, and so on.
  4. Drink enough water. People need between ½ gallon, and 1 gallon per day of water.  If you have pain, and you drink less than ½ gallon per day, increasing it to ¾ gallon per day for 2 weeks usually helps immensely.
  5. Lose the weight! Every 1 pound extra on the front of your body puts 10 pounds of pressure on your spine.  This is especially true for your low back.  Even 10 pounds weight loss makes a huge difference.
  6. Get moving! Regular exercise cuts pain by up to 50%!  And it doesn’t matter where you hurt, if you have shoulder or arm pain, walking or biking helps.  Any exercise helps all body pain!
  7. Do therapeutic exercises! If you have any question about what exercises you should be doing, you can watch them , or ask us when you come in for your next visit!
  8. Get enough vitamin D. By now, everyone knows that they need to have enough vitamin D.  Have your levels tested, and supplement as needed.  Vitamin D, when deficient, will lower your absorption of calcium, making it impossible to hold your adjustment.
  9. Get enough (good quality) calcium. Unlike vitamin D, blood tests do not show how much calcium is in your muscles, only your blood.  There is a muscle reflex test that shows when you need more calcium in your tissues.  We use Calcium Lactate with our patients (other calcium supplements don’t work nearly as well, and at the doses you need to take them, they can be dangerous!).  Like I said in #8, low calcium in the muscles will make it impossible to hold an adjustment.
  10. Get enough sleep. Lack of sleep makes everything worse.  95% of people need 7-9 hours per night for optimum health.

10 Forgotten Things to Help Sleep

Previously, I wrote about how to help your sleep naturally. However, I forgot to include some easy, almost common sense cures!  Here they are:

  1. Cut your caffeine. It’s estimated that 50% of the population is sensitive to caffeine, often without knowing it. Try cutting caffeine (especially coffee) after 12pm.  If you’re like me, and you love an afternoon cup of coffee, substitute green tea, or herbal tea (mint teas especially, since they are relaxing).  Green tea has a small amount of caffeine, but doesn’t seem to affect sleep like coffee.  If you think you’re extra sensitive to caffeine, try cutting it out altogether.
  2. Cut down artificial light. Melatonin is the primary sleep hormone. Artificial light, especially blue light,  disrupts its production in your brain.  Computers, phones, iPads, Kindles, Nooks, and televisions are particularly bad. You can do two things about this:  turn off those sources of artificial light when it gets dark or get blue light blocking glasses to wear once it gets dark outside.  Uvex and Solar Shield are two popular, inexpensive brands.  This really helps, plus you’ll look cool while wearing them!
  3. Try eating more carbs at dinner. The pineal gland makes melatonin out of tryptophan. As a result, this gland controls the body’s circadian rhythm.  Carbs increase tryptophan’s access to the pineal gland. I recommend eating carbs like fruit and root vegetables(such as sweet potatoes), not grains and processed sugars (both of which aggravate autoimmune conditions and other health concerns in the body). 30-40 grams of carbs should do it.
  4. Keep your bedroom as dark as possible. Even small amounts of light disrupt sleep patterns and melatonin production. Try using black out shades.
  5. Keep your bedroom cool. During sleep, your core temperature drops. Encourage this by keeping your bedroom below 68 degrees.
  6. Try to actively relax during the day. Stress hormones discourage sleep. Relaxation lowers overall stress hormone levels in the body.  Just 15 minutes of yoga, meditation, deep breathing, or some other relaxation technique helps immensely.  I like to practice deep breathing every afternoon for 15-20 minutes.
  7. Get outside during peak sun hours, even in the winter! Natural light helps reset your circadian rhythm. Try and get outside every day.
  8. Exercise during the day. Exercise lowers stress hormones at night, encouraging sleep.
  9. Keep a to-do list. Write everything you have to do the next day in a journal, notepad or whatever. Writing it down helps to get it out of your head so that you can sleep better.
  10. Keep a grateful log. Write down 3 things you are grateful for. I also find it helpful to write down the things  I got to do that day that I enjoyed.  Emphasizing the positive really helps change your mindset long-term.

Try these out.  I confess I don’t do them all, just he ones that are easiest for me to do.  You can do the same.  Just keep trying each one on the list until you sleep like a baby.  If you still have trouble, see the first article that I wrote on sleep.

Fixing Lyme Disease

Fixing Lyme Disease

So how exactly did I go about fixing my Lyme Disease?  Well, first, let me recap on 5 crucial steps to fixing Lyme Disease:

  1. I admitted that I had Lyme disease.
  2. I became 100% determined to beat Lyme disease, mostly by myself, with help from my teachers.
  3. I promised myself that I would do whatever it takes to beat Lyme disease once and for all, even if it meant that I had to give up things, or change the way I lived.
  4. I put myself in charge of eradicating this disease.
  5. I took it as a personal mission to help as many people with Lyme disease as possible.

Basically, I totally confronted the problem.  This I think is the most important step to fixing any problem.  Once I made the above decisions, I realized “It must be hanging out in some weak area of my body”. I sat with this for a while and realized that I had had weaknesses in my lungs, kidneys, adrenal glands, liver, and gallbladder, and taken supplements for them.  But the problem kept coming back.  I also had swollen lymph nodes off and on since I was about 14, and even gotten surgery twice because of this situation.

The lymph system is a little hard to test, as it is literally everywhere, and can be a problem anywhere.  So I went to the lymph nodes that regularly caused problems in my body, and guess what I found?  Some sort of bacterial challenge, and it was bad (in Nutrition Response Testing, we keep away from “diagnosing” anything to keep the FDA off our back, but we can say that we have an immune system challenge)!  I had hit paydirt!

Next, using Nutrition Response Testing Acute Dosing Protocol, I found which supplements would support the organ (the lymph nodes) and immune system challenge (bacterial) that came up. I took the dosage I found, but instead of taking it daily, I took it hourly!  As my brilliant wife had pointed out, I had an acute exacerbation of a long term problem, that needed help right now! The results were undeniable:  the cough that I had immediately stopped, and the open wound I had in one of the infected lymph nodes for 6 months healed in two days.  It was a miracle. I kept this protocol up until I felt 100% better, then I gradually cut down the supplements as my body indicated with muscle testing.

So what did I learn from this?

  1. If it looks like Lyme and acts like Lyme, it’s probably Lyme!
  2. You’ve got to use Nutrition Response Testing locate the immune system weakness exactly.
  3. You’ve got to use Nutrition Response Testing to test exactly what you need to support the weakness.
  4. You’ve got to follow through 100% on your supplement program.  This may take time.
  5. I had to totally stop eating refined sugar, grains, and pasteurized dairy.
  6. I had to adhere to a diet of fruits, veggies, meats, nuts and oils in order to rebuild my immune system.
  7. I had to handle the different stresses in my life to take the pressure off of my immune system.
  8. Sometimes I had to take wayyyyyyyy more of the supplements I tested for than what is generally suggested.  Basically, I had to go with what my body said to do, instead of what someone else who wasn’t in my body said.
  9. I had to trust that my body knew what it wanted, and if I wasn’t feeling better, I just hadn’t found the problem yet.
  10. Lyme disease is definitely curable.

I hope this 4 part series into my own personal health challenge helps you with your own health challenge.  Keep tuned each week for more advice on how you can help yourself live a happier, healthier life!

Auto Accident Alert

We have recently seen an increase in patients seeking help for neck pain and back pain after an auto accident. It seems that driving in a car is one of the most dangerous things you can do. I have learned that the long-term effects of soft tissue injuries due to motor vehicle crashes (even at low speed) are one of the biggest public health problems today.

The best thing to do to avoid injuries from a motor vehicle crash is stay out of traffic altogether! This is one big reason I live above my office. However I realize this is not possible for many people. So here is an useful article on how to avoid an accident. But if you do get into a crash, and your injuries only seem minor, it is very important to see a chiropractor. Chiropractors are  equipped to relieve your pain and prevent the long-term effects such as arthritis.

Here is another very useful article that explains insurance procedures and the role of chiropractic if you have been involved in an auto accident: What You Should Know if You Have Been Involved in A Car Accident

If you are ever-so-slightly nerdy (like me) and would like to read up on whiplash injuries (or “Cervical Acceleration Deceleration Injuries”), here is an excellent web site with a ton of very well-researched data. For example this tidbit: 45% of persons with chronic neck pain attribute the pain to a past motor vehicle crash injury.

Most importantly, stay safe out there! It goes without saying, don’t text and drive (here’s what can happen if you do), stay off your phone, and watch out for the other guy who is not following the above advice. As they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

The Seven Essentials of Proper Sleep

In my clinical practice, I have found there are seven things that contribute to good sleep.  They are:

  1. Cleansing heavy metal toxins from the body
  2. Healing the detoxification pathways through the liver, bowels, and kidneys
  3. Having enough supply of healthy minerals
  4. Plenty of proper exercise (which lowers stress hormones)
  5. Having a plan to handle life stress
  6. Healing stressful belief systems (for example: “I’ll never be able to heal.”)
  7. Keeping the blood sugar balanced

But people often want to take something to help them sleep.  I always tell them to get the seven essentials of sleep in place before taking anything to sleep.  Otherwise, you’re not correcting the cause, you’re treating the symptom, and that fails 100% in the long term.  So if you have the seven essentials in line first, here is what I check to help people sleep.
1. Tryptophan-this is a naturally occurring amino acid in food.  It tends to be deficient in low protein diets, and people who are under stress.  It’s the precursor to serotonin (the feel good hormone), and melatonin (the sleep hormone).  This amino acid hits a lot of home runs!

2. Melatonin-Most people could use a little help with this because they have poor diet and their sleep cycle is off.  I test people to see if they need tryptophan or melatonin.

3. Magnesium-Most people are deficient in magnesium, and supplying it helps them to relax and sleep better.  People who tend to have muscle pain, or pain in general, and tend to have sluggish bowels usually do very well on magnesium (Warning-most over the counter magnesium supplements are garbage, I use only magnesium lactate, because that’s the only one that seems to work!)

4. Parasympathetic Nervous System stimulating minerals/trace minerals-most people are deficient in these.  Supplying them help people’s nervous systems relax, so that they can heal and sleep. I test for a variety of different trace mineral preparations in my office.

5. Valerian, passionflower, hops, and other relaxing herbs-some people just need a chill pill every once in a while-for them, this tend to work well.

Natural Protection from the Sun

Sunburn – a Nutritional Deficiency Issue?

Did you know that a sunburn is actually a sign of nutritional imbalance? It means you don’t have enough calcium in your tissues. Tissue calcium provides sun protection. And just because you have enough blood or bone calcium does not necessarily mean you will have enough in your skin. Essential fatty acids (EFA’s) help mobilize calcium to the tissues and the skin, but unfortunately most of us are deficient in EFA’s, calcium, or both.

Easy Sun Protection Protocol

The good news is, there is an easy protocol if you want to protect yourself out in the sun that does not involve toxic chemical lotions. Just take 6 Calcium Lactate and 6 Cataplex F tablets every 2 hours during sun exposure. If you have very fair skin or the sun is especially strong, you can take that same dose every hour. Use in combination with a natural sunblock for best results, depending on your skin type.

What kind of results can you expect from using these products for sun protection? We hear our patients report they would not do without the Cataplex F and Calcium Lactate when they have to go out in the sun. On patient commented, “I can use the gentlest most non-toxic sun block and the supplement protocol combined, and stay out in the sun for hours. I have very fair skin, but I get a healthy rosy glow.”
