Drug Induced Nutrient Deficiencies
This month, we will discuss Drug Induced Nutrient Deficiencies. This topic has become so important that I am going to resume the ABC testing explanation next month! Many patients have come to the clinic this year with side effects due to drugs. The most prevalent and obvious cases are those suffering with neuromuscular aches and pains due to Cholesterol Lowering Drugs. (Statins) One unfortunate consequence of statin drugs is the inhibition of CoQ10 synthesis. Thus, in the long run, statin drugs could predispose the patients to heart disease by lowering their CoQ10 status, the very condition that these drugs are intended to prevent! Therefore, it would be wise if you are on this kind of medication to add 60 mg of CoQ10 to your diet on a daily basis. This will help with the neuromuscular symptoms as well as the exercise intolerance that often accompanies this medication. Are you aware that you need to take Acidophilus following the use of antibiotics? Antibiotics don’t pick and choose between friendly and unfriendly bacteria. Antibiotics will wipe out the good bacterial leaving you susceptible to further infection, digestive disorders and yeast infections! Are you aware that SSRI’s (antidepressants) lower Folic Acid, Vitamin B6, B12, Vitamin D and increase the need for essential fatty acids? Pain relievers such as Aspirin and Nsaids increase the need for Folic Acid, Iron, Vitamin C and glutathione. There are specifics for what is needed after the use of Antibiotics, Antacids, Anti-Hypertensives, Corticosteroids, Diuretics, Gout medicine, Hormone Replacement Therapy, Laxatives, Contraceptives, Sleep Aids and more!

Puffing Your Way To Low Back Pain
With low back pain affecting 8 in 10 adults, Finnish researchers recently set out to examine existing research and determine if smoking really was associated with an increase in low back pain. The researchers reviewed more than 80 studies from around the world conducted between 1966 and 2009. While they were unable to clearly say that smoking leads to low back pain, they did find that smokers are at a 31 percent increased risk for low back pain as compared with nonsmokers. The strongest association with smoking was with those suffering from chronic and disabling low back pain. Additionally, researchers found that adolescent smokers were more vulnerable to the effects of smoking than were adults. If you're a smoker, both we and your back urge you to quit now!

Chiropractic Care Helpful For Dizziness, Neck Pain and Balance
New research suggests chiropractic care may provide benefits to a number of those suffering from dizziness and balance related problems in addition to neck pain. Dizziness and balance problems can often originate in the cervical (neck) region. Through specific, safe and skillfully applied chiropractic adjustments, treating the cervical region may clear up reported dizziness and balance problems. In the study, researchers found "clinically meaningful change" in subjects who initially reported suffering from dizziness, neck pain and balance problems, and, who subsequently received 8 weeks of chiropractic care. Researchers concluded, "Most patients demonstrated improved balance, and some showed reduced dizziness and neck pain." If you are suffering from neck/back pain, and/or dizziness and balance problems, consider trying safe, natural and effective chiropractic care today!

Brigadier Gen. Becky Halstead Touts Benefits of Chiropractic

"Chiropractic care provided me with a better quality of life," stated Brigadier General Becky Halstead (Ret.) at the opening session of the 2009 Chiropractic Symposium and Expo (CSE), which took place Oct. 30 – Nov. 1 in St. Louis, Mo.

CSE 2009, a new educational event offered by the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) and its specialty councils featured a variety of lectures and symposia on popular chiropractic specialties such as sports injuries and physical fitness, chiropractic pediatrics, occupational health, diagnosis and internal disorders, and chiropractic forensics.

Gen. Halstead spoke to a crowd of about 250 doctors of chiropractic, sharing her personal story of how chiropractic care helped her recover from debilitating chronic fibromyalgia, and why she believes the benefits of chiropractic care should be extended to all members of the military.

"I believe in the service that chiropractic care gave me after I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. It provided me with an overall wellness," she said. "And I believe in the importance of providing access to chiropractic care for military servicemen and women. The conditions our military endures can cause serious musculoskeletal pain and misalignments of the spine. Chiropractic can alleviate back injuries, headaches and the stress often associated with the strain of the gear and the conditions endured every day."

Gen. Halstead recalled how she learned that chiropractic care enables patients to take an active role in their recovery and ongoing health. She also underscored the importance of working together to expand its availability. "Traditional medicine did not work for me…doctors of chiropractic not only allow but strongly encourage the patient to be part of the solution for their wellness," she said.

"General Halstead offers instant credibility as a chiropractic spokesperson and was very well received by attendees of the ACA Symposium," said ACA President Rick McMichael, DC. "It was great to have her with us for this event."

Gen. Halstead served 27 years in the U.S. Army. She was the first female graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point to obtain the rank of general, and she was the first female general to command troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Today, Halstead is a spokesperson for the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress and serves as executive director for leader development with the Praevius Group, a Virginia-based consultancy focused on the innovative fusion of leadership development and technology.

ACA, based in Arlington, Va., is the largest chiropractic organization in the United States. The association provides lobbying, public relations, professional and educational opportunities for doctors of chiropractic, funds research, and offers leadership for the advancement of the profession. ACA promotes the highest standards of ethics and patient care, contributing to the health and well-being of millions of chiropractic patients.

Junk Food Ads Galore On Kid Websites
If you're a parent of a child, you may be shocked to learn that researchers have found of the 28 most frequented children websites, 49 of the 77 food product advertisements found in a recent viewing met experts' criteria for "foods to avoid." This included advertisements for sodas, candies, sugar-rich cereals as well as fast food restaurants. Another 23 fell into a neutral category as they weren't considered junk foods but also weren't nutritional enough for their consumption to be encouraged. The five remaining food ads were foods that children are encouraged to eat and included pure fruit juice, milk and oatmeal. TV ads have long since been under fire for marketing junk food to children and teens and it now appears the web could be far worse. Many food companies have started utilizing "advergames" to increase traffic and further promote their products to children and teens. Advergames are online games often incorporating the companies' products in order to further influence their eating choices. Parents must pay extra special attention to their child's online activity and beware of the consequences of allowing children to visit even seemingly acceptable and safe child-related websites.
