More Drugs Being Recalled

January isn't starting off any better than 2010 ended for leading drug  giant Johnson & Johnson with yet another recall of popular products Tylenol, Benadryl, Sudafed and Sinutab.   In late November, Children's Benadryl Allergy Fastmelt Tablets  (grape and cherry flavors) and Junior Strength Motrin Caplets (24 count) were involved in the recall.

What Are Auto-Immune Diseases?

There are many autoimmune conditions that include but are not limited to Hashimoto's disease, Rheumatoid arthritis, IBS or inflammatory bowel disease, Lupus and MS or multiple sclerosis.

Autoimmune diseases are thought to be the result of an overactive immune response by the body against substances and tissues commonly present in the body.  Before going any further, it would stand to reason that any "over-active" response in the body would have at least a component cause in nervous system regulation dysfunction.  In autoimmune conditions, the body actually attacks its own cells due to the immune system mistaking a part of the body for a foreign agent.

According to estimates made by The National Institute of Health, autoimmune diseases affect as many as 23.5 million people in America. They are considered to be the tenth leading cause of death in women under 64 and is increasing annually.

While traditional medical approaches are sorely lacking in their ability to help people beyond their symptoms with these problems, you can take action now to reduce inflammation in your body.

Start by choosing to eat a healthy diet that includes many fruits, nuts, vegetables and fish that may help you improve your quality of life. In addition, you can begin to increase your activity level and work toward a healthy regular exercise routine that safely works for you and, obviously proper chiropractic care.

The Bottom Line…The Bottom Line…The Bottom Line…

Dr. Steve Hoffman also shares his personal experience.  Dr. Hoffman's resting heart rate was ~90 beats/minute at the end of his typical work day.  Through Functional Diagnostic Nutrition, he was introduced to the MRT-150 blood test which provided him with a list of foods his system was sensitive to that he then avoided.  The result for him was nothing short of spectacular with a drop of more than 20 beats/minute within months.  The test is not available everywhere.  Ask us.
