Too much insulin flooding insulin receptor sites and not being able to bind (hyperinsulinemia) is a bad thing. Not only because of the risk of Diabetes, but because of other health effects including increase risk of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD). H0w does it do this? It increases risk of High Blood Pressure, damages protein synthesis and coagulation, and interferes with lipoprotein metabolism. Due to insulin’s relationship with  sodium levels, when insulin levels increase so does blood pressure. As insulin levels drop, so does blood pressure. Insulin Resistance also interferes with breaking down fibrin protein which is intimately involved with coagulation (clotting).

Since high insulin levels are also associated with lipid metabolism abnormalities (think high cholesterol, high triglycerides, low good cholesterol (HDL), and high bad cholesterol (LDL), it is wise to lower it to avoid taking statin drug with the know serious side effects.Insulin Resistance is also associated with adrenal, thyroid, liver, immune, gut, and cognitive dysfunction. This is a serious problem that leads to Diabetes. Diabetes alone is projected by health authorities to break the American health care system unless drastic changes are made to eliminate this PREVENTABLE disease.

Stay away from all sodas, especially diets sodas, due to adverse health effects including but not limited to: GI problems, blood sugar problems, weight gain, dizziness, blurred vision, and migraines. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) now predicts that of those born in America after the year 2000: 1 in 3 Caucasians, 1 in 2 Hispanics, and 1 in 2 African Americans will become full blown Diabetics. This condition alone is predicted to break the health care system. Sodas are one of the major contributors to this alarming rise in Diabetes.

Research has now left no doubt about the cause of aging, and it is something called oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is caused by an imbalance between the production of reactive oxygen and the body’s ability to detoxify and repair the resulting damage that was caused by free radicals. Free radicals, at the cellular level, are the cause of aging and contribute to dozens if not hundreds of known conditions.

Imagine that you can “turn back the clock” to the cellular age of a 20 year old. Well, I have studied the product called Protandim developed and clinically proven with the guidance of prominent Neurologist David Perlmutter MD. I’m convinced that this is a breakthrough. I have added it to my own regimen of nutritional support and am recommending it to my patients. I will keep you posted after my own clinical trial of myself and some of my patients. According to Dr. Perlmutter, it takes 4 months for the FULL benefits to occur.

Protandim is composed of : (1) Bacopa which increases Super Oxide Dismutase (an important anti-oxidant and de-toxifier) production (2) Green Tea which increases metabolism and burns fat (3) Ashwagandha which is an ancient panacea for multiple conditions (4) Tumeric which minimizes the effects of inflammation and (5) Milt Thistle which supports liver health. Now these ingredients can be found in other products but the key is in Protandim’s research on HOW they are put together for the greatest effectiveness.

40 years of research on Protandim lead to features on PBS, ABC, NBC, The Wall Street Journal, and CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s book, ” Chasing Life”. Protandim has been clinically proven to reduce oxidative stress by 40%. If the claim that it will reduce my oxidative stess to the level of a 20 year old in 30 days are true, and I believe they are, then I’ll be practicing chiropractic neurology and enjoying life longer than most of my peers.

Call us today, or speak with me on your next appointment, about Protandim!

Denver/Lakewood Chiropractor

In a former life, I was the official chiropractic neurologist for the Tampa Bay Mutiny (Major League Soccer Team), the Tampa Bay Rowdies (original U.S. soccer league team), the Bay Ballet, the Tampa Ballet TheatrerCompany, and the Sunshine State Games. I began my career with athletes when a patient of mine, who was the athletic  trainer for the Rowdies soccer team (0 and 4 record at the time),  came to me and asked if I could help two star players who were out with injuries. One player, a Nigerian forward, was disabled due to a chronic hamstring injury while the other, a French midfielder, was disabled after failed back surgery. Within two weeks of brain based therapy, both players were playing full time and didn’t miss another game (the French player went on to become a chiropractor). The Rowdies won all the rest of their regular season games except one and then played in the NASL championship game (they lost to the Colorado Foxes 2-1 but not because of injuries).

Question: Do you think that professional sports  teams and world class athletes seek chiropractors for neck and back pain? The answer is – not really. Athletes, for the most part, accept  pain as part of the territory. Athletes seek chiropractic neurology for brain based therapeutics resulting in PEAK PERFORMANCE, the edge. Faster sprint times, improved accuracy, faster reaction times, improved coordination, better and quicker decision making, improved reflexes, greater symmetry between the muscles of both sides of the body, faster healing times, etc. – this is how Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, Joe Montana, Lance Armstrong, Jerry Rice, etc. extended their champion careers with chiropractic.

Average Joe doesn’t know what these elite athletes know. Therefore, typically Joe will seek chiropractic only as a substitute for pain masking drugs and  will not take advantage of the powerful performance enhancing effects of chiropractic. The tragedy is that the same maximum performance treatment that Michael Jordan gets is available to average Joe. He/she could increase total human function resulting in more energy, better memory, fewer sick days, faster promotions, etc.. Average Joe may not notice 1/4 second off his 100 yard dash but he will notice the life enhancing effects of brain based therapy in other important areas of his life

Rarely do I see a patient that presents WITHOUT subjective complaints related to adrenal function (sleep disorders, salt cravings, slow starter, afternoon fatigue, dizziness when standing up too quickly, afternoon headaches, heavy perspiration, waking up tired after 6 or more hours sleep, under high stress, weight gain under stress). And even more rarely do I look at blood or saliva testing that that does not indicate adrenal stress.
So what are the adrenal glands and what do they do? The adrenal glands are two pea size glands located above the kidneys which are regulated by the Hypothalalmo-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) axis. The HPA axis originates in the primitive brain-stem area concerned with survival. The HPA axis controls the release of cortisol (a steroid hormone) that in turn controls adrenaline. Other hormones produced in the outer adrenal cortex include aldosterone, progesterone, and DHEA. The inner adrenal medulla produces epinephrine and nor-epinephrine related to sympathetic (freeze, fight, or flight) function. When the body suffers high stress and excess cortisol either in a severe stress period or sustained stress over a long period of time, there is a failure of the normal rise and fall of these hormone levels over a 24 hour period. These hormonel levels effect so many aspects of life including sleep and blood sugar.

Adrenal stress is usually secondary to failures in other systems of the body. Anemia, Diabetes, Liver and gall Bladder Disease, Thyroid problems, etc. can all cause stress that fatigues the adrenal glands. In America, we are culturally inclined to eat boxed and packaged foods loaded with partially hydrogenated fats and gluten, synthetic sweeteners (Aspartame, Nutrasweet, etc.), refined carbs, colored and dyed foods, and on and on. Dietary stress alone can lead to adrenal failure.

At Brown Chiropractic Neurology, and in Functional Neurology and Endocrinology, we evaluate a comprehensive metabolic and neurotransmitter health history and compare with the findings of a complete neurological and blood chemistry analysis. Only by looking at the individual and not a cookbook can we determine what is best for the person. And as always, our approach is drug or pharmaceutical free.
If you are looking for side effect free solutions to your neuroendocrine problems, I am Dr. Scott Brown DC, DABCN, FACFN (303) 986-7600 and I would like to help!

It is surprising to most people that falls are in the top 5 reasons of death of ALL ages. Why is this? Balance is a delicate balance (no pun intended) of several neurological mechanisms. First there is the most powerful sensory input to brain – proprioception (the information your brain receives from your joints, skin, and muscle spindles) so that you can feel where you are on earth’s gravitational field. Second there is vision (so that you can see where you are). Third, there are the central and peripheral vestibular systems which include the inner ear mechanisms (these are the brain mechanisms that allow you to balance even in the absence of proprioception and sight. There is a lot of redundancy in the system and many people have a problem in one area (such as the vestibular system) which is compensated by the other two systems.

When people first start having loss of one of these delicate balancing systems, they usually are not aware. If they miss a step or are looking up and not paying attention, they may find themselves on the ground with a broken hip or worse.

At Brown Chiropractic Neurology Clinic, we have a vestibular lab with the most up to date diagnostics (VNG and Comprehensive Assessment of Postural Systems) to find out where your balance problems originate. Once the area of deficiency is identified, we can rehabilitate the area with non-drug, non pharmaceutical, non-surgical brain based therapies. In rare cases, there are problems that require referral to a surgeon or other specialists. Save grandma from a hip fracture and save a life.

People of all ages have balance problems and can be screened at our office for $27.00. Also check out my video on my website – browncnc.com
