Heal Your Gut, Heal Your Body

By Dr. James Krystosik

A growing body of research demonstrates that if the function and integrity of the gut (intestines) is restored, the body can heal itself. How is that possible? For starts, 70% of our immune system is in the gut. If substances that irritate the body are removed (toxins, hidden food allergies, stress) and elements missing are replaced (beneficial bacteria, vitamins, minerals, hormones), the body is able to heal itself. At my health care facility, we don’t guess the values of these vital components…we test. Functional medical tests unveil the cause of digestive illness—the leaky gut. The number one enemy of digestive wellness is leaky gut syndrome (LGS); it is no joking matter. It affects millions of people and is the underlying cause of a long list of illnesses. Asthma, repeated infections (sinus, kidney, bladder, lung), eczema, hives, migraine, irritable bowel, fungal disorders, weight loss, fibromyalgia, depression, inflammatory joint disorders, and an epidemic of autoimmune diseases (rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, psoriasis) are caused by LGS.

Thousands of research studies clearly demonstrate that there is a world of health care information never shared with you because your doctor doesn’t have time to study this research. For over 25 years, I have been deeply immersed in studying and prescribing lifestyle medicine based on this research. A healthy digestive system means more than freedom from the annoyances of bloating, gas, indigestion and heartburn. A healthy digestive system is connected to the health of every organ and system of your body. After treating over 15,000 patients, I have discovered that if I help patients fix their gut, the body will heal itself.

Essential Oils and Aromatherapy Take the Fear and Anxiety out of Dental Visits

screen-shot-2017-01-04-at-10-10-10-pmFear of the dentist is one of the top three reasons for dental neglect. No need to worry anymore! Experiencing the therapeutic effectiveness of essential oils will turn your dental visit into a relaxation session that will keep you coming back. Scientific research validates the value of essential oils in decreasing anxiety and stress. A small application to the temples, back of the neck or wrists, and even inhalation in the waiting area provides relaxation before and during the dental visit. Essential oils are known to provide a calming effect during injections too! Adults and children can both benefit.

The benefits extend beyond the psychological to physical well-being. Aromatherapy has antimicrobial and antiviral properties and increases the oxygen level in the air and cleans the air. There is no “dental office smell” here! Enhancing the experience is what dental “care” is all about. The addition of these holistic modalities truly create piece of mind. If taking care of your teeth is a challenge, our integrative practice can help you with the use of aromatherapy and essential oils.

What is whole body Cryotherapy and why try it?

By Mark Belter

screen-shot-2017-01-04-at-10-13-13-pmWhole body cryotherapy enables the natural healing of your body in a 3 minute process. It is used and studied for the reduction in chronic pain. It reduces inflammation and soreness that clients may experience from those annoying aches and pains to those who are dealing with Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, MS, joint pain, and even Migraines.

How does the process work? You enter the Cryochamber for a 3 minute session where your body’s surface temperature will be lowered. During the session, blood vessels will begin forcing blood away from the peripheral tissue and towards a person’s core. In the core, the body’s natural filtration system removes toxins and inflammatory properties of the blood. The blood becomes optimally oxygenated, which accelerates the healing results. The body’s toxins break down and the brain releases endorphins that have a beneficial biochemical healing affect throughout the body. Stop in to Cryo-Freeze Health and Recovery to experience the natural power of the cold and feel great in just 3 minutes. We have special introductory pricing! It is a great experience. Visit our website for more information: www.cryofreezeoh.com.

Q: When Should I Start To Save For Retirement? Are You Putting Off Contributing to Your IRA?
A: You may want to think twice, because when it comes to your retirement account, contributing “early” may be better in more ways than one. Compounding can potentially be a powerful tool in pursuing your retirement goals. Depending on your time horizon, IRA funds may be accumulated for years or even decades. Consider the following hypothetical situation: An investor receives a sum of $10,000 from an inheritance. Knowing that she needs to begin saving for her retirement, she decides to contribute the entire amount to an investment vehicle with a modest 5 percent annual return. During the first year, she earns $500 on that investment, which increases her funds to $10,500.00. The second year, the
interest is accumulated not only on the $10,000, but also on the $500 earned in the prior year; bring the investor’s funds up to $11,025. This process would continue for the remainder of the time that the funds stay invested.* The longer money is left in the account, the faster it may begin to grow.
Also important, but often overlooked, is the beneficial nature of making annual IRA contributions prior to April 15. With today’s technology, monthly contributions into your IRA should be easy to set up. By contributing earlier, your IRA may potentially grow even faster, due to compounding. For more information on how the power of compounding can help you pursue your retirement goals, contact me today at (440) 250-1630.

Q: Difference Between the “Perfect Weight” and Reaching Our “Happy Weight”
A: Our perfect weight is often a number that is too low and too difficult to reach and maintain. Our happy weight is the weight that is reasonable and will allow us to be healthy, but experience celebrations and treats in moderation. Here are some steps on reaching your “happy weight.”
• 1) Set a clear goal.
• 2) Daily small decisions amount to huge payoœffs. It is the daily discipline
that equals lasting results.
• 3) Don’t go at it alone, this helps with accountability and support.
• 4) Drop the soda, limit your caœffeine, drink WATER!
• 5) Greens are your best friend. Have a variety of them every week in smoothies, in salads, in soups, or just sautéed with garlic and a little olive oil.
5) Track your food. Get Waisted has a wonderful tracker that gives a readout of the antioxidant content of your food.
• 6) Go for real food. If it comes in a can, bag, or package, contains more than three to five
ingredients, and if it has an ingredient that you cannot pronounce, reach for something else!
• 7) Move every day, aim for at least 10,000 steps.
• 8) Be grateful, and fill your mind, your speech, your life with as many positive affirmations as possible.
