Maybe Being Thick Headed Really is That Bad

This recent study shows that 7 year old children with more noticeable thinning of the cerebral cortex appeared to be more highly intelligent. Puts new meaning to the term "thick headed" doesn't it. It appears researchers are once again telling you what you already knew. That is that people that are thicker headed (thicker cerebral cortex - the outside layer of the brain) are dull witted compared to their thin cerebral cortex counterparts.

Interesting thoughts. Wonder if "Rock Head" is accurate also. Maybe people that are stupid really have rocks for brains. Who knows... but the researchers will sort it out I am sure.

Prevacid, Nexium, Zantac, etc etc etc.... Boondoggle

Once again the boondoggle over stomach acidity. The medical community continuing to state that millions of Americans suffer from too high stomach acidity and should take any one of the many medications that are used to combat this epidemic. Bunk. Studies have shown that stomach acidity decreases with age and correlates with slow stomach emptying. How can a patient have too much stomach acid and yet have those contents that have now been reduced quickly to a slurry because of high acid levels not leave the stomach regularly. It Makes no sense but is used over and over as a reason for people to begin abusing their stomach and body with these medications for the rest of their life.

Please read the link by clicking on the title above. I think you will find it enlightening. If you need help with this condition give me a call.

Folic Acid and Cervical Dysplasia

This post is just a reminder to the women in my audience and practice who read this site. Folic acid especially in a whole food source is significantly important for the health of your cervix. Cervical dysplasia, which estimates say will be given as a diagnosis for an abnormal pap smear to at least 70% of women during their lifetime, is once again making the news. The problem with how it's making the news is that the recommendation on how to deal with cervical dysplasia gets more and more invasive and aggressive with each passing year.

The medical community will often give you the choice of a LEP procedure, a biopsy of some sort or if you're an older adult woman, a hysterectomy. Hold the phone. If you are a woman who practices sound sexual protection, is monogamous or close to it and uses good hygiene then the first line of defense is very high doses of folic acid and a repeat pap smear after 60-90 days.

Women should not fall into the fear mongering tactics that are used to rush you to some type of invasive procedure. Do your own research or read the article that is linked to the title of this post. Just click on it and you will be glad you researched another option for your approach to cervical dysplasia. There are also other natural nutritional and herbal supports that will improve immune system to keep HPV at bay or even eradicate it.

Ladies, give your cervix a break and look at natural alternatives to invasive procedures and surgeries. As I have said to my female patients before. If removal of testicles and prostate's was the treatment of choice for prostatitis, male ob/gyn's would find another solution. Hope you got that one :)

Don't let this happen to your children !

Had another experience today that has been oft repeated in my practice. I had a mother bring her two children into the office for treatment. The one child has had severe and chronic ear infections, upper respiratory infections and asthma since the first year of life. The patient is now 6 years old and has had these problems for five of those six years. The one calendar year where the child had good health was when the child did not visit the medical doctor but was under the care of an applied kinesiology chiropractic doctor that used nutritional and homeopathic remedies.

The child was given a surgery during his third year of life that removed the child adenoids and tonsils, and placed ear tubes. Of course this was done on the heals of twelve to fifteen rounds of antibiotics during the first year of life that completely destroyed the child's immune system. While this surgery was heralded by the medical doctor as a smashing success the child has had more severe ear, throat and respiratory problems ever since that surgery. Doesn't sound like much of a success to me. Of course these tissues that were removed are often considered to be "vestigial type organs" that don't have any useful purpose and are left over from developments along the evolutionary trail. The appendix would also be an organ considered as such and is removed regularly during any abdominal surgery (just for good measure).

This scenario of this young six year old boy has been repeated many times during the history of my young patients over the past 10 years. No thought by the medical doctor that whoever created the body may have placed those tissues there for a reason. Why would we think that we as doctors have the right to remove body parts routinely because we just can't seem to see how they are needed.

How about this question ? Does the watch know how to tell the watchmaker how to make itself ? I don't think so. What is amazing too me is how many people are still willing to place ear tubes and cut out tonsils, adenoids and appendix tissue without a thought for other options or how this could damage the body. I surely am glad that I still have my tonsils and adenoids as a first line defense against airborne viruses, bacteria and the like.

If you are having these problems with your children bring them in. I can help and have helped many children get off the antibiotic, ear infection, ear tube surgery, tonsilectomy surgery bandwagon. There are options as parents if you are willing to pursue them.

Excitement over new training

I will be attending a seminar in Las Vegas in early April. This seminar is created and taught by Randall Frank, son of Victor Frank, who began TBM (Total Body Modification). Randall, whom I spoke with on the phone yesterday appears to be as intellectually advanced as his Dad. He has taken his Dad's work and built a layer of advancement upon it. This technique, on report from practitioners and other patients is extremely effective for all complex health conditions (especially environmental sensitivities and fibromyalgia but not limited to those). It is based on the idea that the computer system of our body can often become attacked with a virus and that we need programs or antidote scripts that will restore the body to health and balance and fix the "glitches" so to speak.

Very cutting edge and already showing unbelievable results in patient treatment. I am really, really really looking forward to learning this technique and the thinking and rationale behind application of it. Stay tuned for more information once I return. Now that I have my website finished stop by and have a look, I think you will like it.

Have a great weekend !
