Why Choose Our Office?
So let’s start with what makes my office completely DIFFERENT from any doctor
that you have seen up to now…
#1: COMPLETE NEUROLOGIC TESTING WITH EWOT (Exercise with Oxygen
In Dr. Datis Kharrazian’s best selling thyroid book, Why Do I Still Have My Thyroid Symptoms When My Lab Tests Are Normal?, he states on p. 172…"The brain is saturated with thyroid receptors. Healthy thyroid function is integral to healthy brain function. Brain health and sufficiency of the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine are important for thyroid function." This is why it is very important to support you neurologically.
OXYGEN … your brain and nervous system need TWO things to survive: FUEL and ACTIVATION. Activation comes from the treatments that are listed below. Fuel comes in the form of OXYGEN and glucose. You get the glucose from the food that you eat, which is why it is important to eat a healthy diet. AS YOU AGE, YOUR ABILITY TO UTILIZE OXYGEN DECREASES. One of our treatments is to give patients oxygen to increase their body’s fuel delivery system. It’s called EWOT or Exercise with Oxygen Therapy, and it’s like gas in the car… if you don’t have any gas in the car, you are not going anywhere. If you don’t have oxygen available for your brain and nervous system, most likely, no treatment will work!
UNILATERAL ADJUSTING… the right brain controls the left side of the
body and the left brain controls the right side. If there is a decrease of firing or impulses in one side of the brain, I ONLY WANT TO ADJUST YOU ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE. Makes sense, doesn’t it? Also, I WILL ONLY USE VERY LIGHT ADJUSTING SO YOU WILL NOT GET WORSE! Have you ever had an adjustment and felt worse afterward? It is because the adjustment was TOO MUCH for your nervous system. It over-stimulated, or (get ready for another $3 term that neurologists use) it "exceeded metabolic capacity."
AUDITORY STIMULATION… listening to sound in one ear will stimulate the opposite side of the brain and increase impulses.
OLFACTORY STIMULATION…smelling different scents will stimulate the brain. Your sight, sound, taste, and touch all travel through a sensory area of your brain called the thalamus. SMELL GOES DIRECTLY TO THE BRAIN.
CALORICS… warm water in the ear will stimulate the semi-circular canals in your ear and fire the vestibular nerve back to your cerebellum. The cerebellum fires to the brain, the brain fires to the lower brainstem (ponto-medullary region), and your lower brainstem slows down the upper brainstem (mesencephalon).
#2: COMPLETE AND THOROUGH METABOLIC TESTING:
Has your doctor specifically checked for an autoimmune disorder or Hashimoto’s disease? There are two parts to your immune system, TH1 and TH2. IF one of these parts is dominant, you could have an autoimmune disorder. An autoimmune disorder is where your immune system is attacking your body causing your thyroid condition.
The first part, called our "T"-Helper 1 System (TH-1 System), is our immediate immune response system. It is responsible for an immediate attack against foreign invaders like bacteria, viruses, mold, fungi, or parasites. The cells involved in the TH-1 system are called macrophages, natural killer cells, and cytotoxic T- Cells. It is our front-line defense.
The other part of our immune system is our T-Helper 2 (TH-2) system. It involves the production of antibodies to "tag" onto invaders so our TH-1 system can more easily destroy the invaders. It is our B cells that are responsible for producing the antibodies.
The balance between these two sides of our immune system is very important to
look at with many thyroid patients.
IF one of these parts is dominant, you could have an autoimmune disorder.
An autoimmune disorder is where your immune system is attacking your body and it could be causing your thyroid problems. You are just about guaranteed to fail using medications alone. WHY? 90% of the time the primary mechanism is your immune system attacking your thyroid, which is also known as an autoimmune attack. Medications alone do nothing to slow or stop the auto- immune attack. Since the autoimmune mechanism is the most common cause of hypothyroidism in the United States, you would think that it is commonly screened for by ALL doctors. Unfortunately, it is rarely, if ever, checked. The reason? Doctors are too hung up on treating thyroid problems with medications. Why run extra tests if you are not going to alter the treatment based off the test results?
AUTOIMMUNE CONDITIONS TRUMP EVERYTHING THAT I HAVE LISTED BELOW…IT MUST BE HANDLED FIRST AND FOREMOST OR YOU WILL NEVER GET COMPLETELY BETTER!
2. Has your doctor specifically checked you for any food sensitivities? Each time that you eat a food that you are sensitive to such as gluten (wheat, barley, rye, and oats), dairy, eggs, soy or yeast, it can cause your immune system to attack your thyroid. THESE FIVE FOODS COULD BE SLOWLY KILLING YOU AND YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW IT BECAUSE YOU HAVE NOT BEEN TESTED!
3. Has your doctor run a COMPLETE thyroid panel? Your thyroid CONTROLS your body metabolism so if you suffer from thyroid conditions…IT MUST BE THOROUGHLY CHECKED! I'm not talking about an simple test for TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone), I am talking about the COMPLETE BATTERY OF THYROID TESTS which includes Total T4 (TT4), Free T4 (FT4), Free T3, Free Thyroxine Index (FTI), Resin T3 Uptake, Reverse T3, Thyroid Binding Globulin and the thyroid antibodies…TPO and TGB! Your THYROID is EXTREMELY important and needs to be checked! Did you know that many doctors consider TSH levels from .35 to 5.0 to be "normal." Optimal or "functional" TSH levels should be 1.8 to 3.0. What is YOUR TSH level? If it is not 1.8 to 3.0, have you had the FULL battery of thyroid tests? Has it ever been checked? If not…WHY?
4. Has your doctor checked your Adrenal Glands? Your adrenal glands are your "stress" glands and they are JUST AS IMPORTANT in successfully treating your thyroid!!! An ASI (Adrenal Stress Index) needs to be run on you which will check your cortisol levels at 8 am, noon, 4 pm and 10 pm.
5. Has your doctor checked you for blood disorders such as Anemias? Anemia simply means you ARE NOT going to get oxygen to your tissues. There are different kinds of anemias such as iron, B12, Folic acid etc. And we can test for each one. Anemia is very important to find and correct. Without oxygen available for your brain and nervous system, most likely, no treatment will work! No supplement will work. No nutritional program will work.
If you are male have you ever been evaluated for Andropause?
If you are female has your doctor ever ordered an expanded female hormone panel?
If you are female and post-menopausal has your doctor ever assessed your risk factors for developing uterine or breast cancer?
HORMONE LEVELS ARE VERY IMPORTANT IN CONTROLLING THYROID CONDITIONS!!!!!
If you answered "NO" to any or all of these questions then there is a good chance that your thyroid condition is not being managed properly!!!
THESE TESTS NEED TO BE RUN ON YOU TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF YOUR THYROID PROBLEM!
"How Will I Know That My Body Is Improving? Will This Work For Me?"
It’s ALL about re-testing. That’s how you and I will both know if you are improving and if our treatment is working. Our action plan is…test, treat and re-test.
We can't spend all of this time and effort getting to the root of your problem and then just hope that our treatment protocols made the changes. We have to measure, and if necessary, change our treatment, and measure again. Not that you won't be feeling better as we make these changes, but we have to measure our change so we keep moving toward the goals we set together.
It takes time to make these changes because of the test, treat, re-test scenario. Our job is to get to the root of your problem and correct it.
The reason you are reading this report and you have not been helped is because no one was willing to sit down and listen to you, no one was willing to take the time to understand your problem, no one has done a thorough workup on you, and no one has take the time necessary to make changes.
"What If It Doesn't Work For Me?"
I will be right up front with you, the number one factor that determines success and failure with a case, is how closely the patient follows our care recommendations. If you do the things that I prescribe, then you are going to go down the road you have been wanting, probably for a long time, which is...moving toward "normal" again.
You are reading this because you are one of the smart few who wants to take control of your health, and do what it takes to help your body. Nothing else matters when you lose your health. I love working with patients like you because you are willing to learn about your problem, listen, and make the changes necessary to get your health back on track. It's Time to Get Your Life Back!!
This is Life Changing Care
