What To Do With SIBO El Paso, Texas

SIBO ( small intestinal bacterial overgrowth ) is defined as 10 5 up to 10 6 organisms of bacteria in the small intestines. It is highly relevant to remember that the abundance of bacteria in the small intestine that has SIBO, are healthy bacteria that live in the gastrointestinal tract. It means that the bacteria in the digestive tract is either missed or dislocated and is in the wrong place in the small intestines. While SIBO still remains a poorly understood disease, it is frequently implicated to be the cause of chronic diarrhea and malabsorption. Individuals who have SIBO can also suffer from many chronic illnesses. This includes unintended weight loss, nutritional deficiencies, and osteoporosis. SIBO and IBS Studies have indicated that 84% of individuals that has IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) will have SIBO. SIBO is one of the causes of leaky gut, and leaky gut is one of the triad factors that can lead the body to have an autoimmune disease. Health care professionals

Activating the Nrf2 Cell Defense Through Food El Paso, Texas

The Nrf2 cell defense creates a pathway that provides protection against oxidative stress and disorders. It plays a vital role in maintaining cellular homeostasis and keeping each cell strand in check. Without the Nrf2 cell defense, oxidative stress can be excessive and directly cause or contribute to many common diseases. This includes cancer, osteoporosis, inflammatory bowel diseases, and neurodegeneration. Studies show that even oxidative stress can contribute to insulin resistance and multiple sclerosis. Certain foods that are beneficial to the Nrf2 cell structure, due to their antioxidative properties; can enhance the Nrf2 cell gene gradually. Researchers studied that dietary sources that contain antioxidants flavonoids, fermented food and drinks that contain lactobacilli, and sulforaphane from cruciferous vegetables; are the contributors to aid the Nrf2 cell structure. With these certain foods in a person’s diet, it can be beneficial to combating oxidative stress and p

Governor Proclaims October Chiropractic Health Month El Paso, Texas

State of Texas Office of the Governor As far too many Americans and Texans know, chronic pain remains a huge public health problem and one of the most prevalent reasons why people seek medical care.

Their expertise in the prevention, care, and rehabilitation of back, neck, joint, and head pain is critical for treating patients with various pains and disorders and can save the public from the physical and financial t

Functional Neurology: Other Molecules in Glutamate

Previous research studies suggest that L-aspartate, like L-glutamate, triggers excitatory activity on neurons. L-aspartate functions with L-glutamate in the synaptic vesicles of asymmetric excitatory synapses. But, the total concentration of these in the human brain (0.96-1.62 μmol/gram wet weight), their extracellular concentrations in the cortex as measured by microdialysis (1.62 μM for L-aspartate and 9.06 μM for L-glutamate) and their supply according to immunohistochemistry suggest that L-aspartate is significantly less abundant than L-glutamate. Moreover, L-aspartate is a powerful agonist for NMDA receptors but not for other iGluRs with an EC50 just eight-fold higher than that of L-glutamate. EAATs which play a fundamental role in the uptake of all vesicular released L-glutamate in the central nervous system (CNS) also requires the utilization of L-aspartate. L-aspartate is perhaps as less essential as L-glutamate connected to the total excitatory activity associated with iG

Glutamate Toxicity in Functional Neurology

The term excitotoxicity was first employed to demonstrate the capability of L-glutamate, in addition to structurally-associated amino acids, to destroy nerve cells, a process which has been suggested to occur in acute and chronic health issues of the central nervous system (CNS). Excitotoxicity is caused by the excess stimulation of iGluRs into a characteristic loss of cell bodies and dendrites as well as post-synaptic structures. There is a substantial degree of variation in the sensitivity of nerve cells compared to the variety of iGluRs which is associated with the specific receptors demonstrated on the nerve cells and their metabolisms. The susceptibility of neurons to excitotoxicity can be affected with age. Acute excitotoxic nerve cell death is believed to occur in reaction to a number of severe insults, including cerebral ischemia, traumatic brain injury (TBI), hypoglycemia, and status epilepticus. However, what about neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's di

Using Integrative Methods for Hormone Testing

Hormone testing can now be done by using top of the line integrative methods and techniques. There are multiple reasons and benefits for an individual to complete a hormone test. These tests have the ability to help a patient understand their cycle, testosterone/ estrogen levels, why they are tired upon waking or throughout their day, and more. Precision Analyical, Inc. has discovered a way to use scientists who have extensive experience and coupled them with the most advanced analytical methods and instruments. This allows them to achieve the best results when it comes to the dutchtest. What is D.U.T.C.H? D.U.T.C.H stands for " Dried Urine for Comprehensive Hormones" and is comprised of multiple tests designed by Precision Analytical Inc. Dried urine samples allow scientists to see an entire day of hormones and measure multiple different aspects. There are different D.U.T.C.H tests that can be completed depending on the patient's needs. Dutch Complete - This i

How To Deal With Mycotoxin El Paso, Texas

For anyone that has dealt with mold knows that it is mostly found in fresh produce when it hasn't been eaten. It is even there is a new damp spot in the house, and it’s left untreated. Mold is a type of fungus that is presented everywhere, including the air. It can actually cause someone highly sensitive to mold exposure to have chronic raspatory illnesses like asthma and bronchitis. Studies show that the most common species of mold is Stachybotrys chartarum or black mold. This type of fungus thrives in warm, moist environments, including the basement, the bathroom, and the kitchen. It releases toxins in the air that is irritating or harmful to individuals with existing health conditions and becoming mycotoxin. What is Mycotoxin? A mycotoxin is a secondary metabolite being produced by organisms of the fungal kingdom. It can move in and out of cells in the body, causing inflammation when it is indigested. Researchers suggest that mycotoxin can link to serious health pr

How to Travel with Sciatic Low Back and Leg Pain El Paso, Texas

Sciatica doesn’t have to prevent you from being able to travel. Sometimes a journey can create a series of challenges for people with sciatic nerve pain in the low back and leg. A common issue among individuals is to prevent sciatica from flaring up when on the road or in the air. A solution for this is to find ways to keep moving.
