“The Truth about Thermography

Thermography, also known as digital infrared thermal imaging, uses a state-of-the-art infrared camera to measure the temperature of the skin’s surface. It is an FDA-approved, non-invasive, contact-free, adjunctive screening tool that involves no radiation. What these thermal images can show is an increase (or possibly a decrease) in temperature, which indicates to our interpreting doctors that a physiological process is taking place. Using the knowledge that our bodies are symmetrical, we are able to detect where the abnormal hot or cold patterns may be. This helps aid in detecting early cancer and disease. Although with thermography we really don’t want to be finding cancer. Ideally, when screenings begin at a healthy stage in life, we can detect those markers that indicate future disease… long before it becomes disease! Early detection is key here. I’d like to talk to you about the 5 reasons why I believe that, from puberty on, you should consider having annual thermography scans.”

CBD Oil: How It Works And Why Your Functional Medicine Practitioner Is On Board

Let’s talk holistic for a moment. When it comes to the health and wellness industry, it is a word that has certainly made its presence throughout the market. But what is “holistic” trying to say? It’s telling us that there’s more to being healthy than having a fit body and drinking plenty of water. Our stress levels, sleep patterns, and even the way we talk to ourselves play an important role in our overall health. Holistic is about looking at the whole picture. To break it down, our entire body is a giant web of connected pathways that are constantly in communication with each other. When one system falls off kilter, other systems will not only be affected but will have to over compensate for it. For example, someone with chronic stress may have overstimulated adrenal glands, which tells the thyroid to slow the body’s metabolism, which can lead to unwanted weight around the midsection, which causes more stress on the body, and the cycle is perpetuated. As you can see, for anyone who experiences stress on a daily basis, it is just as necessary to find ways to relax as it is to eat a balanced diet.

It is important to acknowledge this concept when we find ourselves searching for the root cause of our chronic symptoms or general feeling of lousiness. Functional medicine uses natural modalities to reach greater health by peeling back the complicated layers to our chronic symptoms. This holistic approach to medicine enables us to dig deep into our bodies and start unraveling some of those knotted and damaged pathways. One way to do this is to supplement the body with therapeutic nutrition and natural compounds to repair damage and regulate proper function.

Enter CBD Oil

Steadily gaining momentum and credibility in pockets of the medical field is Cannabidiol, or commonly known as CBD oil. CBD is just one of over a hundred different phytocannabinoids (organic plant compounds) found in the Cannabis plant. Tetrahydrocannibinol, or THC, is another commonly known phytocannabinoid. There are many positive effects from consuming phytocannabinoids, especially CBD in particular. Some examples include support for inflammation, anxiety, body aches, sleep, and even seizures. When consumed, phytocannabinoids enter a system in our bodies called the Endogenous Cannabinoid System, or ECS. It was discovered in the 1990’s, while doing research on the body’s reactivity to Cannabis, that our own bodies make cannabinoids similar in structure to phytocannabinoids. Hence the name Endocannabinoid System. The ECS is a complex network of neurotransmitters that connects various systems such as the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system with messenger pathways. Because our bodies produce cannabinoids so similar in structure to those found in Cannabis, the compounds in CBD oil are easily recognized by the ECS and can be used to supplement where there is a deficiency.

The role of the ECS is to maintain homeostasis within the body despite fluctuations from our external environment. Due to various stresses we impose on our bodies like diet, chemical exposure, and poor sleep, our ECS receptors can become deficient. After a deficiency has begun, chronic conditions such as disease and autoimmunity can develop.

How to choose CBD Oil

Now that you know more about how CBD works, it is important to know what to look for when purchasing a CBD product. Just as you would look for high quality produce at the grocery store, you want to keep that same integrity when it comes to the quality of your CBD oil. Organic, non- GMO, and sugar-free are best. Full Spectrum is also important to find on the label, as this ensures the whole plant was utilized, which generates optimal nutrient availability. CBD works best when all other phytocannabinoids and terpenes are ingested with it. Terpenes are the plant compounds responsible for aroma, taste, and color of the plant and are found in several other plant species other than Cannabis. They are essential for a high-quality product due to their abilities to intensify the positive effects of CBD. This is known as the entourage effect. Hemp plants alone carry over 200 different terpenes each.

Research is still ongoing to discover CBD’s truest potential in supporting our health. Whether you are someone who depends on it daily to manage arthritis, or someone who uses CBD as needed to cope with stress, it works best when incorporated with a healthy lifestyle and nutritious diet. Nutrition 16:24 carries a full line of high-quality CBD products available in many different methods to accommodate a wide range of needs. We look forward to discussing your questions and concerns regarding your own health and CBD oil.

What To Look For In Your Echinacea Supplement

The science of Echinacea- MediHerb’s research

Professor Kerry Bone, MediHerb Director of Research and Development, has always believed that a key aspect to modern use of botanicals is a respect for traditional wisdom of plant therapy. Kerry and his research team at MediHerb began an extensive research project in 2003 to find a greater understanding of Echinacea and how it works. From their studies we know that Native Americans preferred Echinacea angustifolia and ONLY used the root. Consuming the root of Echinacea is also supported by MediHerb’s clinical studies to be the superior part of the plant that aids in immune efficiency. This is due to the high level of Alkylamides that are present in the root. Alkylamides are compounds found in this herb that strengthen immunomodulatory processes. These research studies also showed that not all Echinacea are the same. Echinacea angustifolia and Echinacea purpurea were specifically chosen for MediHerb’s blend because of their high levels of alkylamides. The synergistic blend of E. angustifolia and E. purpurea in MediHerb’s Echinacea Premium allow the alkylamides to remain in the bloodstream longer, to help the immune system operate more efficiently.

Elimination Diet

With all the new and recurrent diet trends out there, how do you know which route is the best one for you? Feeling frustrated because you eat your veggies, stay away from sugar, and still find that you feel lousy, and not to mention not losing any weight? This is because there is no “one size fits all” diet, and inflammation causing foods could be the culprit. Be aware, what can work well for one person can cause a severe reaction for another. Here is a list of symptoms you may experience if you are intolerant to something you are eating:

  • Bloating
  • Hives or rash
  • Migraines
  • Fatigue
  • Foggy head
  • Irritable bowel
  • Stomach ache
  • Headache
  • Irritability and nervousness
  • Acne
  • And more…

To begin addressing your unique needs, Nutrition 16:24 finds the best place to start is with a standard elimination diet. Sounds scary right! We understand it can be overwhelming while gazing over the long list of foods that are temporarily forbidden. That is why we provide you with a binder of useful tools and guidelines, and also step-by-step in person coaching. As Dr. Barton always says, “When you look at your life as a whole picture, this diet is such a short period of time, and worth it!”. It provides critical information when addressing your health and symptoms. By eliminating common known food allergens and re-introducing each item one by one, we are able to correlate symptoms with a specific ingredient.

It might be just what you need to take your health journey to the next level and support your body’s specific needs. Interested in learning more? Book a consultation or give us a call at 209-629-6818.
