Crack Down on Carbs

I'm having technical difficulties with typing today and the fonts are out of wack here.  When I have time later I will fix it.  Sorry for the eye exercises.

Call to action: take a mental inventory of your overactive interest in carbs that have addictive brain responses.

Crack Down on Carbs
Don't pick on the cocaine addicts. It's not that simple.
Did You Know?
The Standard American Diet endorphin high is no different.

The opioid crisis got its start from carb induced inflammation on the brain.

U.S. children have grown up high before trying any illicit drug.

What's your dietary crack?
The toughest health problem to fix is persistent systemic inflammation caused by society's acceptance of carb addiction.

It's not only an obesity issue.  It is about inflammation, no matter how much you weigh.  Inflammation is the basis of all dis-ease and sickness. 

None of us is immune. Modern foods have impaired our brains.

Signs of carbohydrate addiction:
weight gain 
 low energy 
 stiff/achy joints 
 high blood pressure
insulin resistance 
 frequent blood sugar drops
high triglycerides 
 brain fog anxiety 
 poor stress adaptation

We choose these foods not for nutrients, but for the endorphin reinforcement.
You're thinking right now about your next meal, but not for the nutrition, but for the emotional gratification. Your next snack is going to give you a nice, warm, happy feeling. You can't deny it. Before your next meal or snack, stop and think about the longing, anticipation you have in the back of your mind. What if you delayed it another hour? Yikes..... that is the craving of your next endorphin surge. This continues the steady influx of inflammation.

Dr. Lisa's Ketolox Phasing Program is your food freedom tool:
  • Overcome the “food like” substances that monopolize our diet.
  • Experience the physical and mental freedom when the brain's food obsession is gone.
  • Free up your brain so it can concentrate on healing.

People Who Love Life Love Chiropractic

People hate back pain. They hate neck pain.
They hate headaches and low energy.
And they call me.

My job is to flip you.

If you love your hobbies, love your social connections, love living with a personal purpose and enjoying each day, you give back to the brain and body that has made you the special person that you are. THAT'S IT.
[Hate doesn't belong here]
The special person that you are deserves an innate intelligence freely flowing your brain energy through the
wide open flood gates of your spine.

People who love life love the idea of
keeping the flood gates wide open.
We do it together. We do it with enthusiasm.
We do it with the BFA Protocol.

You can get sucked into a negative loop of life falling apart.
Or you can be recharged and ready to live your mission.

The Muscle Check Engine Light

Early Disease Warning

Call to action: Take care to look more thoroughly at your muscle discomfort.  Don't just blame it on overdoing it in the yard or gym.  If it's happening too often and you don't recover well, something is lacking. 

Muscle Pain*Cramping*Tightness Indicates Cell Death
  • You have more muscle mass than organ mass
  • Muscles pain is noticed first before organ stress
  • Cell death in muscles mirrors a circulatory problem: Metabolic Hypoxia

This gives you opportunity to protect your cells now and prevent failing health.

How to Save Your Cells:

Reduce Toxic Exposure
Boost Your Mitochondria
Avoid the “Food-Like” Toxins
- Grains                -Sugars
- Artificial sugar   -Seed oils
- Legumes           -Caffeine
- Oxalates          -Alcohol

Avoid other Toxins
- heavy metals          -vaccines
- medications         - molds
- cigarette smoke    - EMFs
- bath and body products
- household cleaners
- household chemicals in flooring, furniture, etc.

-boost brain health always
-aid the organs of digestion

Dr. Lisa's Ketolox Phasing
- better blood sugar balance
- better gut health
- supplement with whole food concentrates


Ketosis / Intermittent fasting

Proper sleep / Don't eat before bed

Reduce mental stress

Understand that normal cellular metabolism of energy usage creates waste products that will overload the detox system if stress wins this tug-of-war.

Oxygen deprivation happens at the capillaries due to stagnation and inflammation. Pain is a sign of lack of oxygen.

What the Secret Service Didn't Tell You

Call to Action: The Secret Service needs to learn about the BFA Protocol. 
(image: So, now that the g o v t peeps have flagged my blog, I want to talk about the bullying report released by the AP last week. 

If you go to the AP news website, search the title; Secret Service Study: School Attacker Showed Warning Signs. 

Just the fact that the conclusion states the violence was not impulsive, but rather the incidents could have been prevented. Also, people who noticed problems in the children did nothing about it.  Perhaps, in  my opinion, no one really knows what to do.  Most mental health care is a dismal failure, but that's a discussion for another day.  

I want to broach the topic by discussing what was not mentioned by the report. They could not come up with a predictable profile.  The only similarity was that they were absent from school for a time before they returned to commit violence, and they had a history of behavioral problems along with being past victims of bullying.  

From what I remember from past news stories, their family lives were a mixture.  Some had an intact home with both parents, others were not.  There were weapons in the home, but I think that weapons are not the problem.  There is a correlation with violent video games, but not all kids who play these games leave their homes to harm to others.  I have watched my share of horribly violent movies, and I'm not walking the streets looking for a fight. Many violent movies have won Academy Awards watched by millions, so I can't put all the blame on the media.  

What the Secret Service didn't tell us is how many of these aggressors are on a number of legally prescribed psychiatric medications.  It has been mentioned in the news after previous shootings.  Now, if you just google Peter Breggin MD and look up how often he is an expert witness regarding violence after prescription drug use, you'll be shocked at the court cases the drug companies have lost. 

What I want to bring up now is why these people are put on drugs?  They weren't coping well with life.  After being put on these drugs they still were not coping well with life.  Drugs like these are mitochondria poisons.  How does the brain work when mitochondria are damaged?  How about the damage already occurring because of dietary poisonings, carbohydrate addiction that clearly changes the brain, and other injuries to the body that have changed brain and immune function?  We now know that disturbances in the gut directly affect the brain.  See the many brain conditions already at risk?

Talk therapy will not work if someone is nutritionally deficient and their brains are high on sugar, processed foods, etc.  I've seen it when I was a mental health therapist.  When I ran a group therapy for individuals labeled bipolar, they were all addicted to cigarettes, Twinkies, and caffeinated soda.  I didn't have to do any nutritional studies back then to know they were trapped in a cyclical mess of poisons.  

The information is out there.  We all know the Standard American Diet is problematic.  We have found ourselves in this predicament because the compounding affects of stress are difficult to overcome when children are starving, yet they look pretty robust and normal on the outside.   It's a sad domino effect when children exposed to harsh experiences can't heal because they are nutritionally deprived.  

In fact, this new story should urge us to work on better ways to feed our children, as well as ourselves.  
Please revisit my previous blog post about behavioral problems associated with processed food addictions 

Am I saying by the time law enforcement gets involved it could be too late?  Yes.  If we are using the same strategies in the courts and mental health systems. 

More to come as I continue commenting on this issue....stay tuned.

Give the Other Side Equal Time

Call to Action: Don't rely on mainstream media for your health information. It is terribly one-sided.  Do your own research and don't give up.  There is a small grass roots effort of people living a drug free life style.  Yes....going through each day without any drugs.

Just a pet-peeve of mine that we are bombarded over and over with drug and vaccine promotions on television, radio, billboards, magazines, etc. 

You're practically ostracized if you tell someone you don't want a flu shot.  You can't enjoy an evening of TV without crazy long drug ads of the healthiest looking people smiling as if they had never been sick a day in their lives.  I know, they are actors, but prescription use doesn't leave people smiling. 

Half  the time we deserve to see what it's like to live a drug free life style, but I don't know what channel that's on. It's not that lucrative.  

People are told it's dangerous to stop a medicine cold turkey.  They must work through it with the prescribing doc.  How often does that happen to anyone you know? Do most doctors cooperate when you ask to stop taking a prescription?

Drugs have problems and they are often downplayed. 
Interested in Bad Drug Lawsuits?

List of class action lawsuits for medications

Wondering if a drug you are taking is the subject of a current lawsuit?
  • Risperdal
  • Rogaine
  • Taxotere
  • Testosterone
  • Xarelto
  • Xifaxan
  • Yaz/Yasmin
  • Zofran
  • Zoloft
  • And more
Check out this Drug Watch Database 

On the bright side: 
There actually is a research organization that promotes safely de-prescribing at Deprescribing,org.  This is very promising. 

So those of us who truly want to live a drug free life style are not misfits.  We may be small in numbers, but we are out here.  

I wish chiropractors had tons of advertising space and commercials, but we're a smaller group of health care practitioners.  

But, word of mouth, can travel just as fast as one 30 second spot during the Superbowl!!! 
You can change lives for the better.  I believe it.

The #1 Reason Everyone Needs Chiropractic

The Common Addiction to Food and the Scary Road to the Opioid Crisis

Call to Action:  Evaluate your diet of addictive foods and consider how they might be pushing you toward unnecessary medication use. 

This is a part 2 to my previous post about food addictions being an underlying cause of depression and anxiety.  Here is the Link. 

If folks think I am putting a stretch on this idea, but baseline poor nutrition runs you down the road to sickness and discomfort.  I am concerned about the medication usage in our society.  People younger than me are on 3-4 different medications.  Why???? 
From a WebMD article: prescription use has risen 85% from 1998 to 2016. Incredible.  And this is normalized. 

It is a natural progression, if you're not feeling better on a medication, you try stronger versions, and now we have an opioid crisis because people were led to believe that they were not addictive.

Yet, the Standard American Diet is highly addictive.  People often swap one addiction for another.  This is something our young people need to be taught.  Non-foods often believed to be foods are changing the brain.  They deprive the body of nutrients, which makes you constantly hungry as the body is calling out for better food.  

Continuously eating the American fare of grains, sugars, and seeds oils keeps your blood sugar high inviting more addictive cravings.  This is very similar to the blood glucose problems of people who are abusing heroin.  See the connection there?

I focus on this pretty seriously because the Standard American Diet is all over the place and it takes quite a bit of planning to avoid the foods that are plentiful.  Considering they never go bad since they are dead foods sealed in a plastic bag, they are cheap and it's easy to just store it up in huge warehouses.  

And, interestingly, our health has steadily declined since our modern way of preserving foods has taken us away from traditional foods and traditional ways of preparing foods.  

Check out this video from Dr. Berg. Yes, he has references in the description.  Our food has changed, but 100 years later we don't know the difference.  We have normalized sickness.  

  Conclusion: I want your chiropractic adjustments to react like rocket fuel  (Powerful)!!  Removing the toxic stress of these addictive, anti-nutrients  makes a major difference from ho-hum to Amazing.

Your Anxiety and Depression is a Food Addiction: How's That For a Twist?

Call to Action: What toxins are getting in the way of your chiropractic care?  How can you make your adjustments more powerful?

Constant toxic exposure messes with your brain. Food (that term is used loosely) is the #1 problem.   We need to eat to live,  but not everything edible is nutritious. 

I mentioned to someone the other day, why would I want to adjust an unresponsive spine?  It took her aback a bit, but she quickly understood.  When your body is clogged up with inflammation, how can the chiropractic adjustment give you positive benefits? 

It does help the body function better.  I wouldn't deprive anyone of the opportunity.  But a plateau is often reached when there is a constant stream of interference. 

Toxic exposure is the #1 threat!    Toxins consumed, inhaled, and absorbed, not to mention toxic thinking.  (Toxic build up of muscle waste products, from overuse, and injury is also a concern. but that's a lesson for another day.)

One super quick way to impair the brain is with foods that lack nutrients forcing your body to crave, hoping for more food.  An insatiable appetite makes someone hungry every 2-3 hours.  Being hungry often is not healthy.  This snowballs into metabolic syndrome, diabetes, chronic pain, poor energy, memory problems, difficulty concentrating, digestive disturbances....
Overlapping causes.....compensating effects.  

Dead tissue cannot respond to the chiropractic adjustment.
Starving tissue is a close 2nd. 
Chronic inflammation takes up residence in tissues that are toxic and starving.
Feeding your tissues properly ensures the chiropractic adjustment can deliver healing energy. 

For a nice summary of food addiction and how understanding it has evolved over the decades, watch this video of an interview with Joan Ifland.  Her personal story is quite compelling.
