Cramps, Anxiety, and Excessive Sweating: A Digestive and Circulatory Problem

Cramps, Anxiety, and Excessive Sweating: A Digestive and Circulatory Problem

I have been seeing a teen patient for eleven months.

In that time we have worked on several complaints for her including anxiety, excessive perspiration, and severe menstrual cramping. In the last two months we made considerable progress with cramps with a Standard Process supplement called Collinsonia Root. Learn how we’ve been treating cramps, anxiety, and excessive sweating naturally.

A couple months ago I discovered a supplement that I considered to be more of a digestive support supplement helped a patient with some of her circulatory problems. One use of Collinsonia Root is for hemorrhoids, varicose veins, and stool softening. Now I am looking at it from a different viewpoint. And, I am having great results.

Collinsonia Root helps with liver congestion and can improve digestion and elimination. And, it can strengthen veins. All of this together decreases inflammation in the abdomen and can help with menstrual cramps.

Nutrition Response Testing is such a wonderful tool for finding out the secrets of the body.

In the case of this patient we have worked on her immune system, supplemented iodine, and her diet is impeccable. All of her initial complaints are greatly improved. Putting all this together has been possible with Nutrition Response Testing and creating a nutritional program specific to her body. Come in today and let us help you with your health concerns. Your body can tell us some miraculous things.

I look forward to seeing you soon and helping you with your health.

How to Manage Your Stress

How to Manage Your Stress

Stress for many people equates to worry.

Your mind may race, you may have difficulty sleeping, you can get stuck on a thought. One way to manage this tendency to worry is look at the problem and find a solution.

A very wise person once told me that worry is not productive. It won’t actually get you anywhere. You have to look at the problem and figure out what you will do about it. The first thing to do is make a list of your problems. List them all. Look at them one by one. Then, pick a way that you will address each one. One at a time. Start at the top of the list and work your way through.

Here are some examples of solving problems:

Problem: You are worried about your health.
Solution: Come in and see us. We can help with and be a part of your solution. You don’t have to do this one alone.

Problem: You don’t have time to cook a healthy dinner.
Solution: Get a crock pot and use it or cook on your day off.

Problem: You don’t know what to eat.
Solution: Look for ideas at westonaprice.org or come to a lecture at our office.

Every problem has a solution. The solution is different for everyone. So, make a list, look at it, and let go of the worry. As part of managing your stress come in and see us. Stress depletes B vitamins and minerals. When we help you find out what your body needs to be healthier you will be better equipped to manage your stress and find solutions.

Looking forward to seeing you soon to teach you how to manage your stress naturally.

Yours in health, Kerry

Never let them see you sweat?

Never let them see you sweat?

If you are concerned about sweating or body odor it may be time to re-think your choice in antiperspirants.

In order to stop sweating and odor, many people begin to use “clinical strength” antiperspirants. But, these don’t solve the problem and they can actually make it worse.

Almost all these antiperspirants contain aluminum. Aluminum is toxic and putting it directly on the skin creates problems for the body. The aluminum is there to “stop the sweat” and it does this by blocking the pores.  It might seem like this is a good thing but it does not allow the body to detoxify via sweat (which it needs to do). Aluminum has been linked to breast cancer and brain and nervous system problems.

Sweating is a healthy, natural way to detox. When sweat has a bad odor it often is due to chemicals, metals, and toxins that are in the body.

Switching to a more natural deodorant instead of an aluminum-containing antiperspirant is a good step in minimizing your exposure to aluminum. We carry a few aluminum-free deodorants in our office. These are effective at eliminating odor. Or you can make your own! The Healthy Maven Recipe   OR   Wellness Mama Recipe

But what about the sweat, you ask?

Rather than block it, you can absorb it by using a metal-free deodorant in combination with talc-free powder.

You can research many safe alternatives on the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep website. They have a huge database that shows you how safe thousands of cosmetics and personal care products really are.

Interestingly enough we have discovered that when you are on a nutritional program and detoxifying naturally, you often sweat less and when you do it has little or no odor. Another great side effect of “Healthcare the way Mother Nature intended!”

See you soon.
