Fighting Cancer with Germs

Cancer

cancer cell

Abnormal cells, a precursor to cancer, grow in our bodies at all times. Many things lead to creating multi-nuclei cells (cancer), such as chemicals and radiation. Once these cells mutate, it’s the duty of the innate intelligence inside our body to detect the cancer cells and use its defense mechanisms to eliminate the cancer cells via the immune system. Our immune system is a learned innate intelligence response to foreign antigens, aka germs.

Immune System

The immune system starts working via a mothers breast milk, giving her baby the needed antibodies to fight off diseases while  the newborn’s immune system begins to grow. As the baby transitions from breast milk to regular foods, the newborn’s immune system takes on a bigger  role of fighting off the bacteria and viruses that assault our bodies on a constant basis. Many of the childhood diseases are considered building blocks for the immune system and provide long term immunity in most cases, such as chicken pox. The immune system studies the virus and/or bacteria and starts a library on the foreign invaders, so it will know how to react to them the next time. Part of the immune response includes a fever, extra mucus, coughing, and sneezing (symptoms), all of which are programmed responses to help the body fight off and expel the foreign invaders. As a baby weens off of breast milk, the immune system should be strong enough to handle the normal flora (bacteria present in your environment) and fight them off with minor sickness (having symptoms).

According to a new study involving pacifiers in Denmark (1), when a health baby is allowed to be involved with germs, greater immune responses evolve. When a baby is subjected to a sterile environment, the immune system starts to act inappropriately. When you reach for the disinfectant and antibiotics for normal childhood symptoms, are you helping the immune system grow or are you robbing it of an opportunity to grow and become stronger?

If childhood diseases are building blocks for the immune system and they help us create a thriving foundation for our children’s immune system, should we rethink how we use products that keep us at arms length from the  childhood germs?

Chiropractic Family

Growing up in a chiropractic family, we weren’t immune to getting sick, but we empowered our bodies with the proper sleep, nutrition, hydration, and a nervous system free of interference, to allow the body to adapt and overcome the foreign antigens. By using the milder diseases as building blocks, our body’s innate intelligence has a greater ability to adapt and survive to it’s environment. Our family is rather healthy and free of most ailments that our environment is inflicting on many children today, such as diabetes, autism, allergies, asthma, reflux, migraines, autoimmune diseases, etc.

The Battle is won in  the Preparation Stage

Back to the immune system. Every day your body is fighting cancer cells by releasing white blood cells that specialize in finding and exterminating irregular cells. Our immune system should be treated like our body.

Lean vs FlabbyDo we like a weak, flabby, couch potato figure? How does someone achieve a flabby body? The flabby body usually didn’t require much work or a plan, it just happens from the mindset “whatever is easiest“.

Or do we gravitate to a lean, muscular, strong body?  How did the muscular/strong frame come to be?  To get a  lean, muscular, strong body, it took a plan that included a lot of work, proper sleep, good nutrition, lots of  hydration, and a nervous system with less interference.

Which type of immune system do you want, a couch potato one or a sleek, mean, green, immune machine?

When you look in the mirror tomorrow, do you see a body and immune system that looks up to the task of the day of fighting cancer cells? Or have you let yourself go a little?  Much of the USA population doesn’t have a choice when it come to fighting cancer; the first layer of the foundation was allowing a baby to come in contact with simple germs while under the protection of mom’s breast milk, but most children have seen a sterile environment and formula for nutrition. Only the outliers get the benefit from dropping their pacifier on the floor and putting it back in their mouth. The second layer of the foundation was the  the childhood diseases, but most children are vaccinated to the point that only the outliers get the benefit from having the chicken pox as a building block. The third layer of the foundation was the common bacterial infection, but most children are given antibiotics for the smallest fever, sniffle, or earache, so only the outliers get the benefit from fevers, common bacteria, and simple upper respiratory infections. In today’s society, how could we think that our bodies could fight off cancer cells when we’re destroying all of the learning experiences for immune system?

Next time you want to sterilize something, inhibit a natural function, or pop an antibiotic in your mouth, stop and ask the question “Am I really helping myself in the long term or am I sacrificing long term health for short term relief?“.

Autism an Autoimmune Disease?

New York Times – “One large Danish study, which included nearly 700,000 births over a decade, found that a mother’s rheumatoid arthritis, a degenerative disease of the joints, elevated a child’s risk of autism by 80 percent. Her celiac disease, an inflammatory disease prompted by proteins in wheat and other grains, increased it 350 percent. Genetic studies tell a similar tale. Gene variants associated with autoimmune disease — genes of the immune system — also increase the risk of autism, especially when they occur in the mother.”

Autism locked in your mindRecently we had a two year old patient (we’ll call her Jane for the sake of the article) that started to exhibit the characteristics of Autism. Jane began to space out. The duration and frequency began to increased, so mom had her checked out thinking she was sick.

With appointments with her pediatrician, neurologist, and other medical professionals, no cause or treatment was given, it was almost like an “I’m sorry mam” approach. But Jane’s mom would not go gentile into that goodnight. She searched for a DAN (Defeat Autism Now) Doctor. With the guidance of a DAN Doctor, a Paleo like diet, and some testing through The Great Plains Laboratory for autism, the DAN Doctor was able to diagnosis a fungal type infection and a parasitic infection that was causing her immune system to go haywire and the brain was over producing  neuro transmitters that would end up damaging the brain.

With the paleo like diet to reduce the inflammatory substances found in our regular american diet, a few natural supplements to help stabilize  some of the neuro transmitters and help protect the brain, the DAN doctor began to work on defeating the fungal infection and helping the body catch up and over take the parasite.

In mere months Jane has returned to a near normal 2+ year old.

Do we really grasp the entirety of corn, soy, wheat, and other Omega 6 crops inflammatory effects on the human body? No, but most people that start the Paleo Diet  and begin to “weed” themselves off Monsanto’s GMO food crops tend to have better long term outcomes. Study on Paleo Diet

Is Autism and Auto Immune Disease? Jane’s mom thinks so and we tend to believe our patients when the other option is “going gentile into that good night”. If it were our child, we would  rage against the dying of the light

At Palmer Chiropractic we offer natural healthcare through chiropractic adjustment of misaligned vertebra that are causing neurological dysfunction, called a subluxation. The nervous sytem controls all of the functions in the body, lack of control leads to DIS-Ease and diminished health. Is your family subluxation free?

Autoimmune Diseases are on the Rise

Virginia  Ladd, President of the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association (AARDA) said “With the rapid increase in autoimmune diseases, it clearly suggests that environmental factors are at play due to the significant increase in these diseases. Genes do not change in such a short period of time.”

The key words in her statement are environmental factors , because what environmental changes have happened  in the our  world’s health in the last 40 years? Do the plants still grow the same? Yes. Do wild animals still grow the same? Yes. Is a little girl in a third world nation as susceptible as you to an Autoimmune Disease? Statistics say “No”. Then we need to ask ourselves WHY? What has effected the health of an entire segment of our population?

One researcher took a look at statistics and wrote this paper “THE EFFECT OF INFECTIONS ON SUSCEPTIBILITY TO AUTOIMMUNE AND ALLERGIC DISEASES” by JEAN-FRANÇOIS BACH, M.D., D.SC.  In his article in the New England Journal of Medicine September 2002, the French researcher Jean-Francois Bach correlated a possible relationship with the decrease in treatable childhood diseases and the incurable autoimmune diseases. Please see the graph below.   http://coronadobio.com/pdfs/Bach%20NEJM%202002.pdf

More research in Japan has lead to some new theories involving the T-cells:

New research suggests that systemic autoimmunity (SLE – systemic lupus erythematosus) is the consequence of overstimulating the immune system with an antigen to levels that surpass the body’s homeostasis (normal function).    http://www.futuremedicine.com/doi/pdf/10.2217/ijr.10.94

In the book The UltraMind Solution,  Dr. Mark Hyman says “We are becoming hypersensitive to our environments, perhaps because we live in an over-sterilized environment and our immune systems don’t mature properly or because we are eating hybridized and genetically modified (GMO) foods full of antibiotics, hormones, pesticides, and additives that were unknown to our immune systems just a generation or two ago.”

According to  Dr. Frederick Miller of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences “The best way to combat the rise in autoimmune diseases is to do research to understand the genetic and environmental risk factors for them, so that those who are at highest risk for developing disease after certain environmental exposures might be able to minimize those exposures and prevent the development of autoimmune disease.”

The immune system is a wonderful and complicated system. We have yet to scratch the surface of how it works. When a patient wants a full and complete immune system, We don’t think there are any short cuts. It’s just like training for a marathon: you start off small and work up to larger and larger distances, so that when the Marathon comes you’re prepared. If you’ve always used vaccinations, antibiotics, and antivirals to crutch your immune system, the “27 mile” pneumonia may be too much for you to handle.

At Palmer Chiropractic, we work with our patients to correct vertebra that are misaligned and causing neurological dysfunction. When the nervous system is free of interference and the body can utilize the maximum ability to command and control all of the bodily functions, many of our patients complaints go away. As a chiropractor I do not treat disease, but many of my patients who have had their vertebra  adjusted and the interference corrected, have commented how much better they feel. Call today for an appointment with Dr. Trace Palmer for your chiropractic evaluation.
