Tidbits From Dr. Saz
Did you know that the United States holds only 5% of the world’s population, and we take 67% of all drugs made in the world? Yet, we rank 37 th in health system performance out of all countries!
Using drugs or surgery to numb, slow down, speed up or cut out the malfunctioning body part, is unlike the approach of a Chiropractic Doctor. Instead, Chiropractors find the underlying cause(s) of your ache or pain, and help correct it. For example, allergic reactions are not the result of a lack of antihistamine medicine, but a lack of your body’s ability to adapt to some irritant. Headaches are not a result of a lack of aspirin in your body, but of an irritant in your nervous system. Taking 1 acetaminophen every 4 days increases your risk of kidney disease 2.4 times, taking the same amount of Ibuprofen increases that risk 8.8 times! Proper function, controlled by your nervous system, allows your body to heal itself, this is the key to good health. Fortunately, the proper function of your nervous system is the primary interest of your Chiropractic Doctor.
Sick care, and or Crisis Care are important, however they are NOT Health Care!
Live a Healthier Life on an Inti-Inflammatory Diet
By Mark Crawford, contributing writer
Eating right is the best way to achieve and/or maintain health. When cells get the proper fuel, they perform at a high level.
If they must operate on low-grade fuel contaminated with chemicals, preservatives, and unhealthful or dangerous natural and artificial compounds, performance suffers. Tissues and joints become irritated and inflamed. This inflammation can be low-grade or it can flare up or progress into chronic or acute disease states, including serious autoimmune problems such as arthritis. David R. Seaman, DC, MS, DABCN, who may have coined the term , “anti-inflammatory diet,” says, “Although inflammation should lead to tissue repair and remodeling, when it becomes chronic, it prevents healing and should be viewed as a disease process.” Dr. Seama is a professor of clinical sciences at National University of Health Sciences in St. Petersburg, Fla.
James Gerber, DC, says, “The pathological process of inflammation has been understood for decades. But only recently have health conditions not previously associated with inflammation, such as heart disease, cancer and degenerative brain diseases, been linked to this process. As a result, there has been more interest in discovering how anti-inflammatory interventions might help prevent or manage many diseases.” Dr. Gerber is an associate professor of clinical sciences at Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, Ore.
Dr. Seaman adds, “Many types of cell injury can cause inflammation, including hypoxia , physical agents such as trauma and burns, chemical agents and drugs, infectious agents, immunologic reactions, genetic derangements, and nutritional imbalances involving both deficiencies and excesses of various nutrients.
One of the easiest and most effective ways to intervene is to adopt an anti-inflammatory diet. “In addition to reducing inflammation, this diet provides steady energy and ample vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, and dietary fiber,” says Andrew Weil, MD, Director of integrative medicine at the University of Arizona’s College of Medicine.
“The most important thing is fresh food, whatever it may be,” stresses Dr. M. Brady, ND, DC, director of the Human Nutrition Institute at the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut. “Avoiding packaged or processed foods-the more a food is processed, the less healthful it will be. Consume lots of plants. Plants have anti-oxidant properties and phytonutrients that quench inflammation.”…

Using Backpacks and Back Safety!
Recently we’ve seen many young patients with back and neck patients with back and neck pain and often a heavy backpack is involved.
The maximum weight of the loaded backpack should not exceed 15% of the child’s body weight.
Your child should wear BOTH shoulder straps. For added comfort, choose a backpack with wide, padded straps.
The shoulder straps should be adjustable so the backpack can be fitted properly. It should not hang more than four inches below the waistline.
The average American spends half of his waking hours seated – on a couch, in the car, and, yes, at a desk. We’re all going to die, but several new studies have found that too much sitting is killing us faster. Seated, we burn fewer calories, our muscles get weaker, and soon enough, our metabolism slows, we burn less fat, and we become especially prone to heart disease. The solution is simple: Stand up! (every 20 minutes is an oft-cited rule).
