You DON'T have to catch that BUG

It's that time of the year again.... the weather is changing, the air feels a little dryer, you're overstuffed from Thanksgiving and you're running around shopping and getting year-end chores done.  To top it off, seems like everyone around is sniffling and coughing.  We have long contended (and many of our patients can attest to it) that one does not catch a cold - it usually happens because the red carpet has been rolled out to the bugs.  Our immune system gets compromised with:

by Olivia Chang
on September 17, 2014

From the moment you enter our office to enlist our help for your health challenge - if we agree we can help you - we've become YOUR team for success.  We take this recruitment seriously. We seek to know your health goal, medical history, current life stressors and work demands, and ability to accomplish that goal given your current life status. We then develop a specific Game Plan that is unique to you to help accomplish it. We show up for you at each treatment, clear and purposeful-minded.  YOUR success requires that you likewise present at each session with mindfulness and expectation of change.  Only a mind deliberately ready to set up new neural pathways can break the pattern that led to that 'random' pain that brought you in.

Thoughts La Jolla best chiropractic and massage are not intangible clouds that appear over cartoon characters. They are very much tangible, triggering the body to produce neuro-electrical biochemicals (serotonin, dopamine, epinephrine, etc...) that flow down a path of connected nerve cells to create emotions which relate to those thoughts. They actually occupy a space in our brain through neurons (nerve cells) and explain why we call them thought patterns (created by nerve pathways).

In our office, we observe that slow healing injuries are usually due to:

  • toxic thoughts & mental/emotional overload,
  • imbalanced diet causing acidic chemistry and malnutrition,
  • sedentary lifestyle, or
  • any combination of the 3
Every thought causes an action or reaction...

Natural support for H. Pylori infections & Stomach Ulcers

by Olivia Chang
on June 18, 2014

H. Pylori (Helicobacter Pylori) is a bacteria linked to gastrointestinal ulcers, gastritis, indigestion and stomach infection.This silent but aggressive infection, when untreated, can contribute to stomach cancer. Due to its aggressive nature, when improperly treated, it often recurs.It is commonly treated by antibiotics.However, some are resistant to such therapy and will need prolonged and combined antibiotics to ensure success.A few of the secondary side effects of prolonged antibiotic therapy are yeast infection and a weakened immune system.There are some natural alternatives that we’ve used successfully in our clinical practice.In addition to dietary changes, we use Mastica (Allergy Research Group), Bio-HPF (Biotics Research), and Original Medicine’s probiotics - S. Boulardii and Multi Probiotics (available to our VIP customers).

Forget the ridiculous high priced, skin pore clogging, toxic chemicals found in the cosmetic counters of departmental stores!  As the cosmetic industry is not health regulated, it becomes a dangerous dispenser of self-proclaimed collagen-building, wrinkle-ridding miracle beauty maker.  A natural health doctor who specializes in helping patients fight stage 4 cancers (what is termed as 'terminal') once told me that these expensive, unregulated products that women put on their skin (which is then absorbed into their bloodstream) are causing the bulk of the cancers that he's treating.
