12
Your body is self healing! (No doctors
heal you!)
13
Your pain or health problems are simply due to
interference to your nervous system (master
system). Your nervous system controls all body
functions and healing.
14
There are always 3 potential interferences or
stressors on your nervous system 1. physical
2. chemical 3. mental
15
Physical Stressors
  • posture spine subluxation
  • lack of sleep
  • little rest and relaxation
  • minimal sunlight
  • exercise (none or minimal)

16
Chemical Stressors
  • Inflammation
  • Acidity
  • Toxicity
  • Insufficient Nutrients

17
Mental Stressors
  • mental emotional tension
  • shallow breathing
  • lack of social support
  • poor attitude
  • little gratitude
  • not enough daily rest relaxation
  • anxious, impatience anger easily

18
Remove or minimize the 3 stressors to maximize
your health!
Read our wellness guide on CD (now over 500
practical health resources!), watch our DVD
shows, receive our key handouts, come to our
classes and follow Dr. Mikes recommendations for
your best health results in the shortest amount
of time.
19
10 Steps to Optimize Energy and Function
  • 1 Practice daily deep breathing and
    visualization.
  • 2 Apply an optimal dietary approach with mostly
    live raw foods, balanced blood sugar, alkaline
    and anti-inflammatory.
  • 3 Drink lots of pure water.
  • 4 Enhance digestion and elimination.
  • 5 Do daily aerobic and strengthening exercise.

20
  • 6 Get enough rest, relaxation, and sleep.
  • 7 Have a positive attitude with daily laughter,
    fresh air and sunshine.
  • 8 Take quality nutritional supplements and
    super-foods.
  • 9 Minimize or avoid processed foods and
    artificial chemicals including all drugs.
  • 10 Optimize posture and spinal health.

21
Foods that Cause Inflammation
  • All grain and grain products such as, white
    bread, whole wheat bread, crackers, pretzels,
    pasta etc.
  • Partially hydrogenated oils found in margarine
    and deep fried foods
  • Corn oil, safflower oil, sunflower oil,
    cottonseed oil, soybean oil and foods made with
    these oils such as mayonnaise
  • Soda, dairy, soy and sugar
  • Meat and eggs from grain-fed animals

22
There is No Such Thing as Moderation. With Every
Bite You Take, You are Either Deflaming or
Inflaming. Therefore eat mostly anti-inflammatory
foods!

53
Cool the Heat of Inflammation
  • Evaluating and choosing the best natural source
    anti-inflammatory depends on the specific
    inflammatory condition, but the primary arsenal
    of remedies to combat a range of inflammation
    includes ginger, turmeric, boswellia, bromelain,
    glucosamine sulfate, omega-3 essential fats,
    N-acetyl glucosamine, and slippery elm,
    fenugreek, and devils claw root.

54
Ginger
  • A spice loved by many cultures around the world,
    gingers most active and aromatic chemical
    compounds are called gingerols. Ginger has been
    reported to offer significant improvement in
    cases of arthritic inflammation and pain by
    inhibiting the bodys pro-inflammatory responses.

55
Turmeric
  • A member of the ginger family, turmeric is a
    bright yellow spice used in Indian curries.
    Turmeric has long been used for its medicinal
    properties in Ayurvedic traditional medicine. It
    is used topically, orally, and by inhalation.
    Curcumin is the primary active anti-inflammatory
    component of turmeric. Numerous studies on the
    safety and effectiveness of curcumin show it to
    contain antioxidant, anti-inflammatory,
    antiviral, and antifungal properties. Like
    ginger, it exerts its anti-inflammatory activity
    by inhibiting the enzymes and prostaglandins that
    play a role in inflammation.

56
Boswellia
  • Boswellia has been found to be specifically
    useful for reducing inflammation associated with
    osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis as well
    as back pain and some chronic intestinal
    disorders.
  • The primary active compounds responsible for the
    anti-inflammatory activities of Boswellia, known
    as boswellic acids, are derived from the
    Boswellia tree barks gummy resin. These acids
    appear to interfere with the chemical reactions
    that promote inflammation. Boswellic acids also
    prevent inflammatory white blood cells from
    infiltrating damaged tissue.

57
Bromelain
  • Extracted from the pineapple plant, bromelain is
    a proteolytic (protein-digesting) enzyme shown in
    numerous European studies to successfully reduce
    inflammation and pain associated with arthritis,
    joint, and connective tissue injuries as well as
    in tissue repair in patients following surgery.

58
Glucosamine Sulfate
  • Several recent studies comparing glucosamine
    sulfate to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
    suggest that glucosamine may be as effective in
    easing arthritic pain and inflammation as the
    NSAIDswithout the negative side effects.
  • A Chinese study of individuals with
    osteoarthritis of the knee found that
    participants taking l,500 mg of glucosamine
    sulfate daily experienced similar reductions in
    symptoms as those participants given l,200 mg
    daily of ibuprofen.
  • The glucosamine group tolerated their
    supplementation much better, however.

59
Omega-3 Fatty Acids
  • The natural anti-inflammatory effects of the
    omega-3 fats can be found most abundantly in
    salmon, salmon oil, flaxseed, and flaxseed oil.
  • Omega-3 fats prevent the bodys production of
    prostaglandins, which lead to inflammation.
    Omega-3 fats also protect against heart disease
    through the anti-inflammatory effect.
  • Eating fish rich in omega-3 fats two or more
    times per week is associated with a 40-percent
    reduction in risk for rheumatoid arthritis.

60
N-Acetyl Glucosamine (NAG)
  • This naturally occurring amino sugar has shown
    remarkable potential in the treatment of
    inflammatory bowel diseases. Acting to soothe and
    repair damaged, inflamed tissue in the bowel, NAG
    is especially helpful to those with Crohns
    disease and ulcerative colitis.

61
Slippery Elm, Fenugreek, Devils Claw Root
  • More good news comes from a British study on the
    antioxidant effects of herbal therapies used by
    patients with inflammatory bowel disease.
  • A research team investigated the usefulness of a
    variety of herbs including slippery elm ,
    fenugreek, and devils claw root.
  • They concluded that all of these herbs had a
    beneficial effect and merited formal evaluation
    as alternative therapies in inflammatory bowel
    disease.

62
Anti-Inflammatory Foods and Moods
  • When it comes to inflammation, its not only what
    we eat, but also what we think that makes a
    difference. One remarkable study showed that even
    a mild case of the blues can increase blood
    levels of interleukin-6, an inflammatory protein
    that increases the risk of inflammatory
    conditions and heart attacks.

63
Contd.
  • Eating a diet rich in wild fish, fresh fruits and
    vegetables, nuts, and seeds is the best way to
    prevent inflammatory conditions. Berries,
    especially blueberries and cranberries, provide
    polyphenolic protection against sight-damaging
    inflammation and oxidative stress. Cherries (the
    tarter the better) are another inflammation-fighti
    ng food. Limit or eliminate red meat, alcohol,
    hydrogenated fats, refined sugars, and flours.
  • Keeping inflammation free is another good reason
    to eat well and keep a positive attitude.

64
Anti-Inflammatory Alternatives
  • Ginger
  • Boswellia
  • Fish Oils
  • Bromelain
  • Cetyl Myristoleate (CMO)
  • Evening Primrose, Black Currant and Borage Oils
  • Cayenne Cream

A Revolutionary Technology
  • Spinal Decompression Therapy

Several studies show over 70 of patients report
good to excellent relief of their symptoms! In
fact, 86 of patients experienced complete
elimination of pain even after numerous other
types of treatment had failed, including
surgery! (sourced from the Journal
of Musculoskeletal Pain)
72
Just How Safe is Safe?
Chiropractic has proven itself to be among the
safest of all healing arts
A study in the Journal of the Canadian Medical
Association (Oct. 2001) found the risk of a
stroke from a Chiropractic neck adjustment is
only 1 in 5.85 million. Whereas the probability
of death from stroke caused by 1 aspirin a day
is 7000 per million.
A 7- year international multidisciplinary study
published Feb. 15, 2008 in the medical journal
Spine provides further evidence that chiropractic
care is extremely safe. The study concluded that
when patients see a medical doctor or a
chiropractor for neck problems or headaches, they
found that stroke is a very rare event and the
risk of stroke associated with a visit to the
chiropractors office appears to be no different
from the risk of stroke following a visit to a
family physicians office. This study also
found that adjustments are among the short list
of effective treatments for the most common types
of neck pain and headaches.
By choosing Chiropractic care, you have chosen
one of the safest, most effective modes of
health-care delivery available today. Just ask
the millions of people who receive chiropractic
care every day around the world how safe and
beneficial it is!
