Crutched – the Antibiotic and You

SocietyIf society as we know it were to end tomorrow and the pharmacies no longer had any drugs for the diagnosis  doctors were able to find, would your family know how to survive?

? How many of your family members depend on antibiotics to support their immune system?

? Did you know that taking 2-5 antibiotics in a two year period can increase your chances of cancer in the following 6 years?

? Are you aware that there are approximately 2 pounds of good bacteria that inhabit your body that help with digestion, bone density, and overall function? Does the antibiotic know which are good bacteria and bad bacteria?

Chiropracticly speaking, the body is a self healing organism that needs the proper nutrition, sleep, exercise, and lack of interference to function at 100 percent of its innate (genetic) potential.

Only in the last 100 years of 3000-7000 years of recorded history on health have our scientists said “WE ARE SMARTER THAN INNATE“, by overriding processes in the body that have served mankind successfully for thousands of years. As a believer in God, a higher intelligence that organized the universe, I have a hard time when we do something to cause interference in the natural organization. Example – you’re taking a statin drug for high cholesterol. When you stop taking it, does the lab test for cholesterol register at normal or does it go back to the elevated level? If it goes back to being elevated, what healing actually took place while you were on the medication? Why didn’t you just change the diet and lifestyle that got you to the high cholesterol in the first place?

?Did you know that there are studies that show people who take statin drugs may be as susceptible to death as the person with the same lab values that elects not to take the statin drugs? Did you know that statin drugs can cause organ failure which may lead to a premature death?

Listen to Dr. Dean Sottile and how chiropractic removes interference without compromising the natural function of the body.

Secondary Infection for Low Back Pain Injections

The CDC is reporting that people who have been treated for Fungal Meningitis from the contaminated back pain injections are at risk for developing fungal spinal abscess. A spinal abscess threatens the spinal cord by compression and also with vascular compromise.

Low Back Pain Injections Kill 29 and rising

Prognosis: Poor – Dr. Carol A. Kauffman, an expert on fungal diseases at the University of Michigan, said “in these instances, all that can be done is administration of more antifungal drugs and hope for the best.”

The best of the best fungal specialists are running out of cures for this contamination.

Back Pain Injections Are Temporary

According to Spine Health “while the effects of the injection tend to be temporary – providing relief from pain for one week up to one year“. Cost per injection (3 is normal) $500-$700 each session, Total cost $1500-$2100 per year of relief.

Back Surgery for Sciatica is Temporary

According to  Dr. Steven Cohen from the John Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, “Surgery may help in the short term. Studies haven’t found an effect in people who did or didn’t have an operation a couple of years down the line.
Low Back Surgery Total Cost and Recovery: $78,000 – $121,000.

Chiropractic Safer and More Cost Effective

To quote the Medical Researchers, “After controlling for severity and demographics, no health maintenance care is generally as good as chiropractor care.” (Spinal Care) – http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21407100

An actuarial review of the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee’s general health plans claims between October 1, 2004 and September 30, 2006 was undertaken and records revealed –  “Paid costs for episodes of care initiated with a DC were almost 40% less than episodes initiated with an MD.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21109053

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.
