BE CAREFUL….  This is the time to claim your health… to keep the success you have attained…

So… re-enter slowly.

 

If you have not spoken to me directly, please wait to re-introduce any new foods until you do.

If you must, stick with the most excellent foods first

    Meat / Eggs / Raw Nuts / Hummis

But, when you introduce a new food, introduce ONLY ONE, with two servings on that day.  Then wait THREE DAYS before you try something else new.  In this way, you will know which foods your body has trouble with.  Watch for any loss of the gains you achieved, whether that was energy, sleep, digestion, abdominal discomfort, etc….

DAY 19 – FOOD RE-INTRODUCTION

“Re-Introduction” Phase                               food-intolerance.pdf

To begin the “Re-Introduction Phase”, start by consuming one “new food” on day 1 of your  trial. Begin with the food you previously ate most frequently and really miss. In most cases, the best place to start is with one of the “Big 5” offenders such as: Wheat, Dairy, Corn, Soy and Egg. Eggs are an especially good place to start as they are least likely to react and are a good source of nutrition and satisfaction.  Eat the trial food 2-3 times during that day and then do not eat it again for at least 48 hours, ideally 72 hours or 3 days. You should now be back on your “Baseline Diet”. If you have a reaction to the food during the next 48 hours, record it on your “Food Experience Journal” (p. 30 of your Post-Purification booklet) and do not eat it again for at least 3-6 months. If you are uncertain whether you had a reaction, re-test that food after the 72 hours. It is very helpful to create a chart or spreadsheet of your offending foods and the reactions you experienced for future reference.

 

Introduce a new/suspect food every 72 hours (3 days) and chart your progress or reactions

accordingly.

 

A Note on Reactions

If you have a reaction or symptoms occur, record it in your “Food Experience Journal”, along with the day and time. Contact the office as soon as you can and explain your symptoms to Dr. Roles or Lisa, along with how many hours/days it took to react after eating that new food.  By considering the timing of the introduction of the new food, Dr. Roles will likely be able to tell you which of the new foods you ate is suspicious.

 

As an example, let’s say you started eating one new food every three days and after day 7 you began to get abdominal cramps 6 hours after eating. The most likely foods to be suspicious of are milk, cheese, gluten, nuts, apples, coffee and pork. Dr. Roles would be able to help you determine which, if any of these, is the culprit. 

 

Or say you suddenly experienced a migraine 12 hours after eating. Highly suspicious foods would be chocolate, coffee, soy, corn, nuts, cola and foods containing MSG. Again, Dr. Roles is there to help you in determining which if these is most likely affecting you. 

 

Remember, the key to successfully identifying the culprit is maintaining good records of your re-introduction. It is always best to work closely with Dr. Roles in performing this “Elimination/Reintroduction” trial. Guidance from Dr. Roles can increase results. Hang in there with this important program – the results can change your life!

 

Suggested Order of Food Group Re-Introduction

DAY 22

EGGS

          Eat cooked eggs or a hard-boiled egg 2-3 times on Day 22

DAY 22-24  (Monday – Wednesday)

          KEEP PROGRAM THE SAME AS DAYS 11-21

DAY 25 (Thursday)

          GRAINS (Use Ezekial sprouted whole-grain bread)

                   Eat 2-3 slices at different times of the day

DAYS 25-27  (Thursday – Saturday)

          KEEP PROGRAM THE SAME AS DAYS 11-21

DAY 28 (Sunday)

          DAIRY (you can choose milk or cheese)

                   Eat 2-3 servings spread throughout the day

DAYS 28-30 (Sunday – Tuesday)

          KEEP PROGRAM THE SAME AS DAYS 11-21

 

HAVE THE IDEA?  Keep this pattern the same until you have tested all the foods you would like to possibly eat in the future.  If you have no reaction to a food, it is ok to eat that food again, but, remember, if you have the desire to lose more weight, you should continue to remain off the wheat and dairy.  (Use almond or rice milk in place of cow’s milk.  Goat yogurt is also a good choice)  Eggs are great if you do not react to them.

Types of Back pain

Posterior_view_of_lumbar_region_for_electrostimulation_electrode_placementAs any good chiropractor would tell you, there is no single cause of back pain. This is because back pain can occur due to various reasons, and affect different areas. It is important that you have an understanding of the nature of your ailment before going to the chiropractor for treatment.

Location Of The Pain

Back pain is classified in two categories, depending on where the pain occurs.

Upper Back Pain

Pain in the upper back, shoulders or neck is termed as upper back pain. There can be certain causes of upper back pain, such as stretched tendons or damaged ligaments due to strenuous physical work. Upper back pains aren’t as common as lower back pains, and can be treated by taking pain relievers such as Paracetamol or by visiting a Chiropractor.

Lower Back Pain

Like the name suggests, lower back pains are directed at the base of the back, and occur due to the overstretching of muscles in the lower back or direct injury to that area. This pain can be caused by a variety of reasons, such as lifting something heavy or bending in an awkward position. Treatment for lower back pains is the same as for upper back pains.

Duration Of The Pain

Besides location, pain can also be classified according to duration.

Acute Back Pain

A short term pain, lasting from a few days to weeks, is called an acute back pain. There may be numerous causes of this pain, the most common being blunt trauma caused by Ankylosing spondilytis, arthritis or other medical conditions.

The symptoms of this pain can range from muscular aches and incorrect posture to shooting pains in the buttocks and back of the legs. Acute back pain can lead to serious problems, but is generally harmless, and most people tend to let it heal itself.

Chronic Back Pain

If the pain lasts for more than 3 months, it is termed as chronic back pain. The cause of chronic back pain can rarely be determined without the help of a Chiropractor or other medical professional. This long term pain gets progressively worse with time; immediate treatment is necessary to prevent further complications.

Now that you know what type of back pain you suffer from, you can act on them by looking up for home treatments online, or doing exercises which may stimulate the back. It is also recommended that you visit your nearest chiropractor who could suggest you treatment options.

Failed Back Syndrome – The Result of a Failed Spinal Surgery

380px-Spine_of_scapulaFailed back syndrome is a term that is used to define a failed spinal surgery that causes continued pain to the patient. Not much can be done regarding a case of failed back syndrome apart from performing a second surgery. Chiropractic care has, however, introduced means of therapy and adjustment to the spine that can significantly reduce the ill effects of the syndrome with undergoing surgery.

The truth is that outcome of a spinal surgery cannot be predicted precisely.  Sometimes an MRI scan can show an abnormal image which could lead to a wrong diagnosis of the problem.

Causes of Failed Back Surgery Syndrome

Some possible causes of a failed back surgery syndrome may include:

  • A wrong diagnosis of the patient’s condition
  • Incorrect surgery procedure performed on the patient
  • Surgery performed at an incorrect level of the spinal column
  • A failed spinal fusion surgery that had led to other complications
  • Continued pinching of the nerve despite the surgery
  • Scar tissue formation

Symptoms of Failed Back Surgery Syndrome

The symptoms of a failed back syndrome include:

  • Chronic pain that continues even after the surgical procedure
  • Pain around the treated level of spine
  • Slow or no recovery from the surgery
  • Moving around is difficult and flexibility is compromised
  • Throbbing pain in the back
  • Spasms
  • High levels of anxiety leading to depression

Alternates to Repetitive Surgery 

Before undergoing another surgery, chiropractors recommend trying the following:

  • Undergo physical therapy – Physical therapy has proven to be a great method in relieving back-pains of all kinds
  • Try Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation – This therapy is performed by inducing low voltage to reduce pain
  • Take non steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines – These medicine can help suppress inflammation which is a major factor in causing pain
  • Get injected with Steroids – Epidural Steroid Injections are a common method of treating inflamed spinal nerves
  • Carry out therapeutic exercises – Exercises help greatly in pain management
  • Have hot and cold compresses – Hot and cold compresses applied on the pain-stricken area can greatly reduce the inflammation and pain

Due to the vast nature of spinal surgeries, it is always best to consult with a physician or a chiropractor to find a solution that is suitable for a specific case.  Professional advice is necessary when it comes to severe cases.

Compassion and Empathy

5487692721_7a8a8f7f30_z
There is a lot of talk today about being happy and how to get there. According to the Dalai Lama, “If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.” Radio personality Dr. Laura Schlesinger gave advice to people who were seriously unhappy to go out and help other people. Helping others appears to be one way to finding happiness.

What does this have to do with compassion and empathy? Everything. When we practice empathy, that is extending our imagination to where we can experience what someone else is going through in a different situation. Practicing compassion means to be loving and kind toward others.

Some people claim that they don’t feel that they naturally have any empathy or compassion for others. This doesn’t let you off the hook. In fact, it’s a cop-out. Developing compassion and empathy is a skill that can be developed over time. If you want to be happy, check and see where you might be able to improve your compassion and empathy IQ.

Look for common experiences. This is a key to positive and productive networking. But if you’re not genuine it won’t go anywhere. Put some authenticity behind it and suddenly you’ll find yourself very socially connected with people who genuinely enjoy your company. Our sense of compassion actually increases when there is a common connection between people.

Reduce the emphasis on financial reward. We already know that money can’t buy happiness. That also means that money doesn’t buy compassion either. As people climb in social status, their compassion for others tends to decline. Take a look at the monied class (celebrities, politicians, tycoons) to see how out of touch they are with the middle class.

Love Yourself. You thought I was going to say you have to love others, right? Yes, that’s the end goal. But if you don’t love yourself, it’s very difficult to be compassionate and loving toward others. Being gentle with your own human traits and habits is a much faster way to overcome problems than to beat yourself up about it. Other people respond better to compassionate understanding than being bullied too. Try it in the workplace sometime.

Be Present. When talking with others, be sure to focus on that person. Don’t worry about the beep or buzz from your cell phone notifying you of a text or email. Put yourself fully in the moment with the person you’re talking to in order to practice compassion and empathy. They’ll appreciate it and you’ll feel better.

Think back to times when someone has done something compassionate for you. It feels great. That’s a step toward happiness. Thank people who treat you with compassion and empathy and you’ll be on the road to feeling happier than you did before.

Are You Draining Your Own Energy?

6253806401_9a9cd9a555.jpgYou may pride yourself on being the one person who says they’re going to get something done, and you don’t rest until it happens. But this can be a huge drain on your own energy reserves because you’re likely dancing to the tune of someone else’s agenda rather than your own.

One way to check and see if you’re constantly working on someone else’s “to do” list, check and see how you feel after you complete a task. If your energy is up and you feel like you could do it again, then make a note of that activity. If you’re left feeling drained and non-motivated, make a note of that as well. A list with a two-sided column next to it will suffice. When your energy is up, note it on the green side. If your energy is down, not it on the red side.

After a week, evaluate the tasks that you routinely do and check it against how you feel.

The idea is to spend more time on the green-column activities rather than on the red side. And I’m going to let you in on a secret, this is how your choices determine whether you live a life of obligation or of fulfillment.

Another way to stop the constant draining of your energy is to evaluate your internal clock. Are you a night owl? Or are you a morning person? The world seems to command that everyone become a morning person, and you are judged at work by how well you resemble a natural early riser. The problem comes in when you aren’t. Never have been. Never will be. Your entire body, all the way down to your cells is a night owl and by forcing yourself to get up earlier, you are not performing optimally.

Every single person has an optimal performance window, and it is up to you to discover what it is. While you may not have the natural instincts of a morning person, but work requires that you attend to tasks in the morning, see if you can shuffle things around so that you’re working on more difficult, cognitive tasks when you are more awake and functioning properly. You may never change your boss’s mind about when you ought to show up to work in the morning, but you can know you’re reassigning the important work for when you’re mentally capable of doing it.

Pay attention to your energy levels. When you are feeling high energy, then attack those tasks that are more challenging. Allow the less important tasks to wait for the times when you are less sharp and need the opportunity to coast a little bit. Your life will take a turn for the better when you manage your energy rather than allowing it to manage you.

DAY EIGHT – WEEK ONE DOWN!!!

Great job everyone….  How did you do through the weekend?  Usually, the first weekend can be a challenge.  We went to a catered birthday party and for me, it was challenging.  Not so much because I wanted to eat the food at the party, I just found myself eating more.  I feel so amazingly well, I was not tempted with the pralines and cream or the bar-b-que.  And I didn’t cheat…. AWESOME….

KEEP THE FAITH…. CALL US IF YOU ARE HAVING DIFFICULTY…

Here is our Day Eight Email Support if you have not seen it

Congratulations!  You are done with the SP Cleanse capsules.  Well, technically you should have 3 capsules leftover (go ahead and take those this morning).  If you have more than that leftover, you probably just missed taking them at some point.  Not to worry.  Keep taking the SP Cleanse (7 capsules 3 times per day) until you have finished the bottle.  However, you should also introduce the SP Green Food starting today as indicated in the Supplement Regimen section below.

How Should I Feel Today?

After 1 week on the program, you should be feeling good.  You should not be hungry or feel like you don’t have any energy.  If you do, you are most likely not eating enough vegetables during the day.  Also remember that you can do up to 5 shakes a day.  A key point to remember is that as long as you are eating healthy vegetables, you can eat as much as you want, so you should not feel hungry.

Weight Loss

As you progress through this program, you may desire to add additional weight loss support products.  You can do this during the purification program or afterwards.  These products are available from Dr. Roles.  Today we start a series of tips on what products to take for your body shape.

If your weight is generalized and you are heavy all over (typical hypothyroidism), the thyroid is most likely your weak endocrine gland.  Discuss the following protocol with Dr. Roles.

Coleus Forte

1 tablet three times daily

Prolamine Iodine

3 tablets per day

Thyroid Complex

1 tablet three times daily

Reminders

If you have trouble taking all of the capsules each day you can try mixing them in with your shakes.  The first 7 days this makes for a bit of an intense shake (mainly due to the cayenne in the SP Cleanse), however now that you have completed those, you might consider this if taking the pills is difficult for you.

Diet for your Disc Injury – Know what Works

images (22)An Apple a Day Keeps the Spinal Surgeon Away

One of the cardinal rules that all chiropractors go by is to rely on the human body’s own abilities to heal its own self. In fact, this is exactly why most chiropractors say that patients who suffer from potentially debilitating conditions such as herniated discs can prevent the condition by eating the right kind of foods. Almost 80% of the population suffers from back pain and would rather resort to minimally invasive back treatments to make their pain a passing memory.

Sadly, most people do not see the connection between what they eat and the affect it might have on their backs. Remember, your body needs to ingest the appropriate amount of nutrition in order for the muscles in your back to move as they should. Here is what you can include in your diet to ensure just that –

Power Foods

Your muscles need power foods in order to, well, become powerful enough to support your movements. These are natural food items that provide a great boost of energy in small doses over the course of a few hours. In other words, they can supply an ample amount of energy to keep you going without craving for a sugary donut that will deplete you of any reserves you might have in minutes.

Foods that contain a high amount of antioxidants such as blueberries and salmon that contains omega 3 fatty acids are good examples of power foods. Chiropractors say that foods such as these can keep your body supplied with the fuel it needs to maintain or support your spine thereby preventing you from acquiring a disc injury.

Foods that contain vitamins and minerals can also prevent your back from failing you when you need it the most. Power foods such as these actually aid the body in releasing energy from the food it ingests to keep itself healthy. Calcium and Vitamins such as vitamin D keep your bones strong and durable as well.

Eating right can seem like a difficult prospect in the fast paced societies of today. However, your body shouldn’t suffer for it. Spinal injuries such as a disc injury are nothing to scoff at. Therefore it’s best that you include food items such as whole grains, whole wheat bread and vegetables in your diet.  Not only will this help keep your back in shape for the long run it will also help you run on a full tank of gas till lunch time.
