Winter is on its way!

Boost your immune system now.  


Dear patients and friends,


It's getting cold and rainy out there!



I just want to remind you that it's time to think about what to do to cultivate a strong and healthy immune system and keep the flu bugs away. As you very well know, a healthy diet is key! Especially with Halloween, Thanksgiving and the Christmas Holidays coming up, it's important to stay the course with a healthy diet.


So throw away the Halloween candy! Sugar and sugary foods cause instant inflammation and break down all your immune defenses. In fact, one teaspoon of refined sugar suppresses your white blood cells for up to six hours, making it a lot easier to catch a cold. Why would you want to paralyze your immune system?


I recommend the following immune system support from Standard Process to help you and your family stay healthy this winter: Immuplex, Andrographis Complex, Congaplex and Echinacea Premium are the go-to whole food concentrates and herbs that will keep the flu bugs away.

  • The quality of Echinacea Premium is second to none.  The alkylamide concentration is high enough to guarantee a positive boost to your immune system.  Place it on your tongue and you'll feel the sensations of the alkylamides.
  • Congaplex has been clinically proven to lower Tumor Necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) to boost the immune system and decrease systemic inflammation.
  • Andrographis Complex contains Echinacea and ChuanXinLian, the best immune herbs in western herbology & Traditional Chinese Medicine.  You can't ask for anything more to address virus, fungus, and bacteria infestations!
  • Immuplex contains a host of powerful immune boosting vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants such as Vitamin A, B, B6, B12, E, folate, selenium and zinc to protect you from free radicals and enhance the function of the immune system cells.


During the month of November, I'm offering a 10% discount on any of the supplements listed above.

Please call to order them early.


Vote Yes on Proposition 37.

In my practice, I see every day what foods, especially Genetically Modified Foods, can do to people's health. I deal with the aftermath of it - the many chronic conditions that are affecting Americans today. The first thing I always tell a new patient is to change their diet and to eat only organic foods.


So I hope you join me in voting for the right to know what's in your food.

Here are some of the most favorite posts of the last few weeks.


Chiropractic Neurology: Miracle Method or Placebo?
I'd thought you'd enjoy the below video. Dr. Jamieson is pursuing his diplomate in Functional Neurology and takes neurology seminars from Dr. Ted Carrick, who was recently featured on Nightline from ABC News. Enjoy!


Chiropractic Neurology: Miracle Method or Placebo?


Patients swear by Ted Carrick's controversial treatment plan that he says re-wires the brain.


What is gluten sensitivity?
Gluten sensitivity is a condition by which your body develops antibodies against gluten, and considers it a toxic substance. This has serious consequences. Research shows that it causes inflammation in the tissues of your body and can lead to autoimmune diseases and various neurological disorders. It can mimic ALS, cause Type 1 diabetes, thyroid disorders, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, migraines, obesity, menstrual and reproductive health complications, cancer and early death. It can cause psychiatric illnesses, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ADD/ADHD, autism, depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorders, and forms of epilepsy.


Why are so many people sensitive to gluten?
The bread that Jesus ate doesn't exist anymore. Much of the industrial wheat, even whole wheat, has been selectively cross-bred and hybridized over thousands of years to contain more gluten protein and be more glutenous. The result is that it makes better bread, since the gluten is what holds it all together. And there is more.
Gluten is only soluble in
alcohol. However, scientists have modified gluten using "deamidation", a process that changes gluten so it can be mixed with other products and foods. The downside is that this process makes gluten more inflammatory. ... See More


What is gluten cross-reactivity?
People sensitive to gluten are often sensitive to other proteins that are very similar in structure to gluten or that share a common component. This sensitivity means that gluten AND those cross reactive foods need to be avoided. If not, people give up their gluten free diet because they don't feel any difference, and they continue to eat what got them in trouble ...See More


Why do some patients sometimes feel worse when going on a gluten free diet?
A gluteomorphin is an opioid peptide that is formed during digestion of the gliadin component of the gluten protein. Patients sensitive to gluteomorphin will show withdrawal symptoms when starting a gluten free diet. Gluteomorphins act as opioids and can cause withdrawal symptoms because of their affect on the brain and the entire nervous system. Because of the opioid effects, patients may feel worse at first and develop new symptoms, which can last a few days to a week. Gluteomorphin antibodies are very common in autistic patients. It is very important to  ... See More


Why sprouted grains and sprouted breads are not good for you.
Wheat germ agglutination (WGA) is the lectin compound of wheat. Through thousands of years of selectively breeding wheat for increasingly larger quantities of protein, the concentration of WGA has increased proportionately. WGA is largely responsible for many of wheat’s pervasive ill effects. What’s more, WGA is found in highest concentrations in whole wheat...See More


ADHD and Omega-3 oils.
Australian researchers have shown that children with higher levels of omega-3 in their blood levels had lower levels of anxiety and shyness as well as better reading skills. Not surprisingly, they found that almost 40% of children with ADHD had low level of EPA and DHA.
These findings were confirmed in a Japanese study. In this study, the dosage of omega-3 oil was increased ...See More


Fish oil isn't fish oil....
It's important to give your children fish oil with an EPA/DHA ratio that is best for them. The same is true for adults. We offer 3 different kinds of fish oil. For most children with ADHD and other neurological conditions, we recommend a ratio of 1/5. Yes - that means 5x more DHA than EPA, because that's how it naturally occurs in our brains. At times, we find that a ratio of 1/20 may be needed. We also make sure the fish oil we offer is actually fish oil and is consistently tested for contaminants during the production process. Children especially like the chewable form.


The Best Oil - Olive Oil.
Olive oil has many health benefits, but only when it has a nice dark green color. If your olive oil is yellow or amber in color, it's probably only good to lubricate your car or a squeaky door.

Super Food Garlic. 
Garlic is an acronym for its health benefits:
G = Good for many things
A = Antioxidant effects
R = Restoration of memory
L = Life extension

I = Immune modulation
C = Cancer prevention
