The Fox that is Guarding the Drug House May be Offshore

For a very long time it has been hard to feel a sense of trust in drug companies. This is true because there is so much money (imagine billions) to be made in drug sales, and because there has been so much evidence against, and conviction for fraud in the prescription drug world.

Things are not getting better, they are just going "offshore". Check out this Vanity Fair article that an MD friend sent me, about how the testing and safety of your drugs are becoming less tested and less safe.

So, what's the moral? It might be, to start learning about and practicing health, so that you have less need for drugs.

Our Commitment to Health 2011

You care about your health.

You care about your family's health.

Knowledge about health, taking care of yourself, and lifestyle are more important and more powerful than treatments or medical insurance.

Would you give 90 minutes each month of 2011, in Ventura, on the second Thursday of each month, from 7-8:30 PM to join with others in a commitment to learning about and practicing health? Would you pay, in advance, $2 per gathering?

We would be talking about food, pain, depression, sleep, relaxation, family, cancer, allergy, vitamins, behavior, and more.

Please take a moment and let me know if you would join this group? Other thoughts also appreciated. E-mail me at:

Every Child Needs a Chiropractor

Every child deserves, and needs evaluation and treatment from a knowledgeable doctor of chiropractic (DC).

Proper function of the spine, and the muscles, nerves and connective tissues of which it is comprised, are critical to a child’s health and vitality. The most common spinal dysfunction that affects children is a gradual loss of motion and flexibility in the spinal joints. This loss can be a major factor in, or cause of back or neck pain. A knowledgeable DC is trained to diagnose this loss of mobility, often before pain occurs and before damage is detectable on an x-ray.

Back pain in children is very common. A 1994 Scandinavian study, by Trousler, showed that 51% of 1,174 school children had experienced back pain.

For most families in America, the two choices of practitioners to treat childhood spinal pain or spinal conditions are a DC and an MD (family practice or pediatrician). In my opinion, the best choice is a knowledgeable DC. DCs specialize in treatment of the spine, while neither family practice nor general pediatricians do. Additionally, MDs rarely address prevention of spinal problems, while prevention would always be a primary focus of a knowledgeable DC.

Fish Oil up -> Breast Cancer down

More evidence.

Researchers in the Public Health Sciences Division found regular use of fish oil supplements, which contain high levels of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, is associated with a 32 percent reduction in breast cancer risk. The findings—the first to demonstrate such a link—were published in the July issue of the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention.

The research, led by Dr. Emily White and funded by the National Cancer Institute, adds to the growing evidence that fish oil supplements may play a role in preventing chronic disease.

Food Allergies on the Rise

For 20 years I have been counseling patients, and those within earshot, about the critical importance and common occurrence of food allergies. Too bad that the epidemic needs to grow for our culture to become aware.

Save Your Child From Being Lazy

Summer is here! Are your kids sleeping a lot, lying around, not doing much, being "lazy"?

Are they really "lazy"? Maybe they feel tired; even with lots of sleep and no work. Maybe they don't really feel good. Maybe they have food allergies that are negatively affecting their energy, mind, mood or behavior.

It is time for a holistic chiropractic check-up for your kids! Let's see how they really are, and help them have more energy and feel better. They might even offer to help out around the house this summer.

Endometriosis and Ovarian Cancer

Louise Brinton,PhD, Chief of the Hormonal and Reproductive Epidemiology branch at the National Cancer Institute, studied the long-term effects of endometriosis in Sweden starting about 20 years ago. Using the country's national inpatient register, she identified more than 20,000 women who had been hospitalized for endometriosis. After an average follow-up of more than 11 years, the risk for cancer among these women was elevated by 90% for ovarian cancer, 40% for hematopoietic cancer (primarily non-Hodgkin's lymphoma), and 30% for breast cancer. Having a longer history of endometriosis and being diagnosed at a young age were both associated with increased ovarian cancer risk.

Autism Professor Needs Help: Vittamin D in Pregancy?

This request came to me from the Vitamin D Council. Please read and pass this on to pregnant women and the rest of the world!
Thank you, Dr. Young

Autism Professor Needs Help

Professor Gene Stubbs of the University of Oregon needs help with his study about vitamin D and autism. He is testing the theory that a mother with one child with autism will not have another if the mother takes vitamin D during her pregnancy. Women no longer need to come to the University of Oregon but can participate at a distance. Professor Stubbs writes:

"Can anyone assist us in recruiting mothers who already have children with autism and the mother is pregnant again before her third trimester? We are giving the mothers 5000 IU D3/day. So far every mother who has delivered has delivered within 1 week or on the date of expected delivery, and the babies are well within normal birth weights. They have not progressed far enough in age for us to screen for autism, but so far, the babies are interactive, have eye contact, are vocal etc..

However, we need more research families to participate. We have recruited other doctors to help us recruit and we have recruited doctors on the Vitamin D Council sites to help us recruit. We still need more families to participate to make our results significant. The families no longer have to come to our site to participate. If you know of any families who potentially might be eligible for our research, please give them my research assistant's phone number, 503-351-9255."

Learn About Cancer Tomorrow - Protect Yourself - Read This Blog

Tomorrow I will be in Carlsbad, CA at the 17th International Symposium on Functional Medicine, on “Confronting Cancer as a Chronic Disease”.  I want to encourage you to watch a live lecture online on a revolutionary approach to cancer by one of the greatest medical thinkers of the 21st century, my mentor, Jeffrey Bland, PhD tomorrow morning, Thursday, May 20th at 8:30 a.m. Pacific time.

I will be sitting in the audience. You can join me. No cost. No travel. No expense. And you can learn from one of the greatest minds in medicine, how to protect yourself and your family from cancer.

Go to: to register for the live lecture on what you need to know about cancer. Click anywhere in the green and yellow box that contains the words “Webcasting Live From Symposium!”. Enter your name and e-mail address on the new form that opens, and click “download”. You will then be automatically redirected to the webcasting page which will be offline until the talk starts on Thursday morning. But you can bookmark it now. The archived presentation will also be available throughout the duration of Symposium (May 20-23, 2010).

We are at a moment in medical history that requires a new way of thinking to successfully address our global epidemic of chronic disease. Practitioners need a new set of lenses to interpret and act on clinical information.  Functional Medicine provides those lenses, a new way of seeing the epidemic of chronic disease based on underlying causes, and treatments based on restoring balance within dysfunctional biological systems and networks.  It focuses on treating the whole system, not just the symptoms.  Applied in practice, Functional Medicine can more effectively prevent, treat and often cure chronic conditions, at lower cost, failed by our current paradigm.

This year's International Symposium on Functional Medicine on cancer as a chronic disease will be attended by practitioners representing 23 countries ranging from Croatia to Japan, Columbia to Finland.

Cancers as systemic functional diseases is a topic of critical importance to today's primary care providers, who will find nearly half their patients confronting cancer during their lifetimes. Due to the urgency of this year's Symposium topic, this year's introductory talk is open to the world as a live webcast. The Institute for Functional Medicine is thrilled to invite you, your friends, family, and colleagues to watch a free, live webcast of the cutting-edge presentation "Looking Anew at Cancer" by Jeffrey Bland, PhD, FACN, CNS,  which will address the mechanisms underlying primary cancer formation and growth and how these factors are addressed by various cancer prevention strategies and treatments.

Sign up at:  and join me on Thursday, May 20th from 8:30 a.m.-10:00 a.m. PST for the live webcast.

Please share this with your family, friends and colleagues! You could save a life.

14 Year-Old Shining a Light on Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

Sometimes it takes a kid to break through dogma.

Please consider lending Ryan a hand. His work with MS will help the world to awaken to the power and value of sunlight and Vitamin D to improving the health of people around the world.

Ryan is aware of the effects of Multiple Sclerosis, as it impacts on the lives of 10,500 people in Scotland and one of of those affected is his Mum. His experience of MS made him determined to find a way to help the thousands of people who are fighting this chronic progressive disease, an illness which has no cure, and to lessen the impact of MS on future generations. So what is his answer? Shine On Scotland ~

Vitamin D status of nursing mothers is critical

Mothers need to have their Vitamin D blood levels tested.

"That is, when pregnant women keep their levels where we think prehistoric human levels were, about 50 ng/mL, breast milk becomes a rich source of vitamin D. First Carol and Bruce gave 2,000 IU per day, then 4,000 IU per day and finally 6400 IU of D3 per day to lactating women. Only at 6400 of D3/day did the women maintain both their own 25(OH)D levels and the levels of their breast feeding babies above 50 ng/mL. On 6400 IU/day, the vitamin D activity of the breast milk went from about 80 to 800 IU/L. Quite a discovery, and another reason for all of us to keep our levels above 50 ng/mL."

College Students with Food Allergies

An article in the Ventura County Star on March 7, 2010 entitled "College dining halls adjust to students with allergies" states that only 4% of the Americans under the age of 18 have food allergies. According to me that number is way too low. It is yet to be appreciated that many childhood symptoms and conditions are caused by reactions to foods. Headaches, bed-wetting, ear infections, constipation, intestinal gas, nightmares, aggressive behavior, ADHD, asthma, acne, and many others are often caused by, or made worse by the consumption of certain foods.

Help your kids be healthy and feel great. Find out what they are allergic to. Beware of those who tell you that food allergies are uncommon.

Sidecar Restaurant Local-Food Dinner – All Aboard!!!

First, let me tell you why this dinner and this movement are so important. Few things are making America more sick than the food that we eat. Local food, by any definition, is healthier that the processed and long-distance-shipped food that Americans live on. Secondly, industrial farming, which feeds most of America, is an unhealthy system. If you question that, watch the film, Food Inc. Locally grown food tends to be grown in a more sustainable manner. And it is always good, when possible, to know your farmer. Now, the dinner ....

This Thursday, May 6, 2010 between 5 and 9pm Chef Tim Kilcoyne and his team will host a Locavore Light 2010-inspired all local dinner!

Gormon Servasta, a medical neurologist from Oklahoma, recently wrote to John Cannell, MD, the Executive Director of the Vitamin D Council in San Luis Obispo, CA, to share his experiences of the benefits of Vitamin D for his patients.

Dr. Servasta reported that all of his patients with sleep disorders had low blood levels of Vitamin D and that when the patients’ blood levels were brought above 50 ng/ml through supplementation, that their sleep improved and secondarily several of their neurologic problems, improved, especially their headaches.

Additionally, Dr. Servasta reports that many neurologic disorders respond to supplementation with Vitamin D. They include improved sleep, seizures, headaches, vertigo, tremor, gait problems, Parkinson's, depression, psychosis, and hypertension (high blood pressure).

Note: At Ventura Chiropractic & Massage, we sell high quality Vitamin D supplements, and Dr. Young orders blood testing for Vitamin D – insurance and cash -  (cash only orders for Vitamin D can be done for $50 by Dr. Young)

It's "D" Truth

Dr. Chilkov's column starts by saying,
"Life Saving and Health Promoting Benefits of Vitamin D:
Vitamin D can reduce your risk of the flu and complications of flu. Vitamin D contributes to lowering the incidence of infections and inflammation during the fall-winter flu season. The Canadian government has recommended increased Vitamin D intake as part of their flu prevention strategy, including prevention of H1N1 Swine Flu."

She is not only right, she is accurately reporting the medical science that it is critical for you to have your Vitamin D levels tested in your blood. Read the rest of her column at:

High Prevalence of Vitamin D Deficiency among Inner-City African American Youth with Asthma

The Journal of Pediatrics

High Prevalence of Vitamin D Deficiency among Inner-City African American Youth with Asthma in Washington, DC

Robert J. Freishtat, MD, MPHacefCorresponding Author Informationemail address, Sabah F. Iqbal, MDacef, Dinesh K. Pillai, MDadef, Catherine J. Klein, PhD, RDbe, Leticia M. Ryan, MDbce, Angela S. Benton, BASa, Stephen J. Teach, MD, MPHbce

Published online 17 March 2010.

The goal of this study was to examine the prevalence of vitamin D insufficiency and deficiency among urban African-American (AA) youth with asthma compared with control subjects without asthma.

Study design
A cross-sectional case-control study was conducted at an urban pediatric medical center. Total 25-hydroxyvitamin D insufficiency (<30 ng/mL) and deficiency (<20 ng/mL) were assessed in urban self-reported AA patients, aged 6 to 20 years, with (n = 92) and without (n = 21) physician-diagnosed asthma.

Blood samples were available for 85 (92%) cases. The prevalence of vitamin D insufficiency and deficiency were significantly greater among cases than control subjects (73/85 [86%] vs 4/21 [19%], adjusted odds ratio = 42 [95% confidence interval: 4.4 to 399] for insufficiency and 46/85 [54%] vs 1/21 [5%], adjusted odds ratio = 20 [95% confidence interval: 1.4 to 272] for deficiency).

Most of this sample of urban AA youth with persistent asthma were vitamin D deficient or insufficient. Given the emerging associations between low vitamin D levels and asthma, strong consideration should be given to routine vitamin D testing in urban AA youth, particularly those with asthma.

Urinary Incontinence in Women

Vitamin D Council
Press Release

Researchers at SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse New York recently announced that pelvic floor disorders in women are associated with low vitamin D levels.

In a paper published in the April issue of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Dr. Samuel Badalian and Paula Rosenbaum studied 1,961 women and found 23% of American women over the age of 20 have a pelvic floor disorder, which often leads to urinary incontinence. Women who are overweight or who have had more than one child are at an increased risk.

The researcher found that low vitamin D levels predicted pelvic floor disorders, even in younger women and that urinary incontinence was twice as likely in vitamin D deficient women compared to women with higher vitamin D levels.

The authors concluded:

“Our findings suggest that treatment of vitamin D insufficiency and deficiency in both premenopausal and postmenopausal women could improve pelvic muscle strength, with a possible reduction in the prevalence of pelvic floor disorders, including urinary incontinence.”

The Whole-Body Approach to Osteoporosis

The only cure is in your willingness to get involved.

Let me talk to you about osteoporosis, about "getting older", and about your need to think and act to protect your health and the health of your children.

Are your bones healthy? Never been tested? Well, either way, whether you have osteoporosis, or you think that your bones are healthy, you need to be engaged in learning about your body, and living in harmony with it.

I want to introduce you to The Whole-Body Approach to Osteoporosis by R. Keith McCormick, DC; published by New Harbinger Publications, Inc. I have only read some of the book, but can tell you that it is a wealth of knowledge and a source of protection for you and your family.

Please read this one paragraph from page 2 of the introduction and see if you aren't drawn to the wisdom.

"Osteoporosis is a chronic disorder. It's not a condition you can fix by swallowing a daily or weekly pill, or even by a yearly intravenous infusion of an extremely powerful bone-specific medication. Unfortunately, in our country the same approach used to treat acute conditions is also used with chronic disorders such as osteoporosis. For example, in crisis care management, the doctor visually examines a patient, possibly scrapes for a culture or analyzes the patient's blood, and then prescribes a pill or a shot to reduce the symptoms. The underlying physiological vulnerability is usually never questioned-let alone assessed. The patient feels better,
the crisis is satisfactorily averted, and yet the nutrient deficiency or physiological dysfunction that might eventually damage his or her long-term health is not addressed and stays unchanged."

Dr. McCormick is talking about the necessity for engagement in ones own health. The central theme of his book is osteoporosis, but the broad theme is living a healthful life.

I am considering organizing a book group here in Ventura, CA to read and discuss this book. But the group would be more; it would be a vehicle for each of us to engage more fully with our lives and our health. Send me an e-mail if you would be interested in being a participant in a The Whole-Body Approach to Osteoporosis - book group.
