Testimonial of the month

from Donna S.

I began treatment with you in June 2008. I was obese, full of candida, thyroid and hormonal imbalance, adrenal fatigue and
was feeling sick and hopeless. Within a few short weeks of following the yeast free protocol and getting the right medication and
supplements, I felt better than I had in decades. My energy returned, my palate changed and I lost 50 pounds. I was actually
eating more food, than when I was shut down and ill. My food was fuel, and my body processed it! I made a stunning recovery, and
had the energy and stamina to lead a busy fulfilling life. I was working in a career that I love, singing and vocal coaching.

All About Pain
Causes and Solutions

by Mila McManus MD 
and Nancy Mehlert, MS
Chronic or intermittent pain, whether it is a headache, tummy ache, or joint ache, and whether it is dull and long-lasting or short term and shooting, it can really drag you down and take the joy out of your life. It can seem difficult to resolve and frustrating to control or eliminate.
Pain is difficult for many reasons .
One reason it's difficult is because the main person you are counting on to resolve it knows very little about it! Did you know that over the course of a doctor's long medical study, less than four percent of medical schools require a course in pain and many offer no dedicated courses at all?  

Not only are most doctors grossly undereducated about pain, but pain can also be very mysterious. Pain can be caused by a specific area of dysfunction or inflammation (kidney stones, pinched nerve, imbalanced hormones, leaky gut) but it can also be a nerve memory caused by negative plasticity of the brain. Dr. Datis Kharrazian, in his book Why Isn't My Brain Working?, describes this characteristic of the brain in this way: "Many individuals develop chronic pain thanks to negative plasticity.  These are conditions in which a person's neuronal pathways that perceive and generate pain signals become more developed and efficient.  For example, a person's herniated disk could cause pain for years.  The pain further activates the pain signal, in essence making these pathways very efficient in generating pain.  Additionally, pain-receiving fibers increase in number and branch out to further activate pain perception. Over the years these new pathways heighten the pain response, even though the tissue injury is no longer sufficient enough to actually generate pain."
In the U.S., more people suffer from chronic pain than from diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined.  There are many causes, and one thing we know here in our practice from observation and experience is that nutritional deficiencies, food sensitivities, hormonal imbalances, and dietary/lifestyle choices are often the main triggers of pain.
Causes of pain include:

Nutrition Nugget:
Dietary Adjustments for Pain Relief
by Nancy Mehlert, MS

It's very common that headaches, joint and muscle pain can be caused from the foods we are eating.  Therefore, it is well worth the effort to practice some food elimination tests to find out if you are reacting to foods.  Usually the pain response is reflective of inflammation and/or a food allergy. When we trigger elevated insulin levels from the foods we eat, we are also stimulating inflammatory prostaglandin production, leading to inflammation and pain.
Here are the key adjustments to make in your diet if you want to relieve chronic pain as well as provide the healthiest environment for wellness:
