ANTI-AGING & DR. ROLES’ PERSONAL EXPERIENCE WITH NERIUM AD

I am thankful you are taking the time to read my story.  It has greatly impacted my life and I am excited to share it with you.

As you probably know, I am a board certified Chiropractic Internist & Clinical Nutritionist.  I have been a specialist in the Anti-Aging Market for over thirty years with a focus on whole body wellness

In my practice, we use standard medical testing in the form of blood, saliva & urine tests as well as hair analysis to evaluate the health and wellness of an individual.  Our focus is FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE.  We believe most illness is the result of loss of function which is 80% of the time brought on by ourselves….. By the way we eat and in the way we live.

So we evaluate people and motivate them and show them how to change their lives.

Well, the tables were turned on me this last few months.  Even though my wife and I have healthy lifestyles, we exercise regularly, we are 80% Vegan with our food choices and we make conscious choices regarding the environment around us…. I had been struggling with a face condition for over five years.

I had self-diagnosed my condition as rosacea.  The pictures below were taken in 2011.

It was not uncommon for me to be dealing with open sores on my face such as the one you see here…..

 

This is where my NERIUM STORY begins…..

My wife and I were blessed with the wedding of our only daughter on June 2, 2013

Next to marrying my wife and having my children, it was the greatest moment of my life.

One month prior to the wedding, a patient of mine, a Brand Partner with Nerium International, John Aloe, approached my wife with a “new face cream” that can help your face look beautiful. My wife, at the time, had some concerns she had not expressed and was actually thinking about the idea of having a “lifestyle lift”, because she was getting concerned about the way she looked in pictures.  She knew her wedding pictures would be on our walls for a lifetime, so when John suggested Nerium to sample, she said, “I’m in!”

I had been trying face creams and “5 step systems” for the last year and a half and had been wearing make-up to work to cover the redness and sores on my face.  I had another open wound on my right temple area which, this time, was not healing.  The sore had been open for over three months and I was just about to get it checked for cancer.

So, a few days after my wife started Nerium AD, I started as well.

I was amazed…. Within fourteen days*, the open wound on my temple actually started to heal and to grow skin over the wound.  And as I continued using the product, I noticed the redness in my face started to change… and then I noticed the sores in my face started to reduce as well.

Here are my 90 day pictures.  The left is when I started Nerium, the right is 90 days later.*

I am thankful to say I no longer wear make-up to work every day.  I have not had any make-up on my face for over a month now.  And as Nerium continues to work on my face, it is starting to remove old sores on my forehead.  They are literally crusting and falling off.

Day One with Nerium:

Oct. 26, 2011 - left face Oct. 26, 2011 - left frontal - open wound

Ergonomics and Employee Productivity

020614-N-0552D-001Ergonomics has become a very popular field, which deals with designing suitable furniture, which is comfortable for individuals, both at home and in the office environment. The absence of ergonomically fit furniture and surroundings, results in different muscular problems in individuals like back pain, neck ache, strains, and carpal tunnel syndrome. Chiropractors provide treatment for alleviating the pain caused because of engaging in strenuous activities throughout the day.

How Is Employee Productivity Linked To Ergonomics?

Ergonomics or human factors, focuses on designing furniture and workplaces, so as to ensure convenience and ease for individuals, both at home and at the office. An ergonomically fit work environment is designed to ensure, that the working stations and the furniture used, are in accordance with the industry standards. It facilitates the functioning and activity of employees, engaged in work at the computer or at the factory floor.

Employees working in an environment, in which the work spaces and the computer equipment are stationed within easy reach, and do not cause any strain, will remain fit and healthy, resulting in efficient productivity. A considerable percentage of employees, contract different muscular pains and strains, which affects their work efficiency. In cases of extreme pain, sometimes individuals have to take time off from work in order to regain enough fitness to resume work.

Benefits of Ergonomically Fit Surroundings

An office having a work station and space, specifically designed keeping in mind the ergonomic standards prevalent in the industry, facilitates the factory workers and office employees in performing their duties efficiently and on time. This improves the overall productivity, resulting in increasing profits for the business.

By designing a safe and ergonomically fit factory production site, companies can ensure minimum accidents and absences of workers. The suitably designed production lines, with the appropriate equipment, increase productivity and worker efficiency, and reduce the wastes to a minimum.

The correct usage of lights and space in the workplace improves productivity and minimizes errors, which results in high job satisfaction.

An ergonomically fit work place is not only convenient for the employees and workers, but it also benefits the business by improving the productivity levels of the company. The improved morale and work efficiency of the employees, increases job satisfaction, and also minimizes the risk of accidents and muscular strains, caused because of inconveniently and unsuitably designed work places. Chiropractors provide treatment to employees suffering from various muscular strains and pains, contracted while working in an office.

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.

The 3 most Common Sports Injuries and How to reduce their Risk

images (20)Over 200 million Americans participating in a sport at any given time, so there are bound to be sports injuries. Every year, up to 5% of the American population incurs a sports injury and has to rest at home while the injury heals. Chiropractors know that this number can be reduced significantly. Here is a closer look at the 3 most common sports injuries and how the risk of attainment can be reduced.

1 – Traumatic Injuries

Traumatic sports injuries are probably the most common types of injuries in sports. They are frequently seen in a variety of contact sports such as rugby, football and ice hockey. Possibly the most common of traumatic sports injuries, the main reason why people see chiropractors, are sprains.

When muscles are stretched beyond their limits, they cause pain. Stretched too far and they can tear. Chiropractors work with people to not only help treat these injuries but reduce their frequency. Using a variety of techniques, they help improve the joints, ensuring they can withstand more stress and perform better as well.

2 – Repetitive Stress Injuries

In many sports such as cricket, table tennis, football, running and weightlifting, players repeat a number of movements and stress the same area of their body. As such, these people are prone to a number of injuries classified as repetitive stress/motion sports injuries. In part, considering the nature of these sports, these injuries are inevitable. However, their frequency can be reduced.

Chiropractors work with athletes of such sports and help them reduce their risk of injury. How? Chiropractors simply use a number of techniques to help strengthen their joints. As a result, a stronger joint is less prone to injury.

3 – Soft Tissue Injuries

Soft tissue sports injuries are regarded as a separate type of injury as they usually occur when a severe sprain has been incurred, usually coupled with a contusion. Such an injury involves localized swelling and the production of a lot of heat. However, chiropractors know that if left untreated for too long, it takes quite a while to heal.

As such, chiropractors work to reduce the swelling as fast as possible, allowing them to properly manipulate the affected area and help reduce pain and enable faster recovery.

In many cases, sports injuries are inevitable. However, according to many medical experts, including chiropractors, their frequency can be significantly reduced.

DAY TEN – Tommorrow…. Meat!!!

FROM THE DOC –

I cannot believe the level of energy I am experiencing over the past two days.  My sleep is deep, my energy is high, my head is clear.  I always forget how GREAT I feel on this program.  My wife and I are making a LIFETIME COMMITMENT to continue “Eating to Live” instead of “Living to Eat”. 

MARK YOUR CALENDAR – THURSDAY – MARCH 18 – 6:30pm – COME TO OUR CLASS – “WHAT TO DO ON DAY 22” – Location: Green Valley Chiropractic & Wellness Center

We will be discussing the strategies to create a lifetime committment to wellness.  How to eat… what supplements to take… what to stay away from and why… how to introduce new foods….   AND – we will have many success stories to share.  It will be a GREAT NIGHT FOR THOSE NOT ON THE PROGRAM, to learn how they too can benefit.

Here is today’s EMAIL SUPPORT from www.purificationsupport.com:

Welcome to Day 10 of the Purification Program.

If you are planning on introducing lean protein such as chicken or fish into your purification program, you are only one day away.  At this point most people can’t wait!  So that you can plan your shopping, remember, you should choose organic, free-range, antibiotic-free and hormone-free protein sources if possible.  Things to be avoided are cured, smoked or luncheon meats.

How Should I Feel Today?

The main thing you are probably feeling today is a craving for meat.  Other than that, you should be feeling strong and energetic.  This is an important day, as you should be feeling good before you begin to reintroduce meat into your diet.  If you do not feel like your energy has returned, speak with your health care professional before reintroducing meat tomorrow.

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.  Finally, today we are discussing the third body type.

If your weight is primarily in your hips and butt, this is a problem with ovaries in women and testicles in men and is an indication of estrogen dominance.

Women, discuss the following protocol with Dr. Roles.

Chaste Tree

2 tablets in the morning (only do this if you still have your ovaries)

Ovex P

2 tablets twice per day

Flax Seed Oil

1 tablespoon per day

 

Reminder: Eat lots of cruciferous vegetables!

Men, discuss the following protocol with Dr. Roles.  Please also note that in addition to the weight in your hips and butt, you will most likely also exhibit weight in your belly.

Cruciferous Complete

4 capsules per day

LivaPlex

4 capsules per day

Symplex M

4 tablets per day

Whole Food Fiber

2 level tablespoons per day

Tribulus

1 tablet per 50 pounds of body weight (i.e. 4 tablets for a 200lb man)

Linum B6

4 perles per day (if you prefer to add it to your shake, use Flax Seed Oil)

Flax Seed Oil

1 tablespoon per day (if you prefer pills, use Linum B6)

Reminders

If you are going to be introducing lean protein during this purification, remember that you do this tomorrow (on day 11), not today (a common misunderstanding).
