Dr.B. Sure…I’ll give you a typical overview of what I see clinically on a weekly basis. I’m going to take you through what I describe as a “generally unwell” female for this exercise. This woman would probably be in her mid-thirties to her mid-forties. She may or may not have been a competitive athlete in her younger years. She is married, has three children and works a fairly stressful job to help her husband make ends meet. She is a “super-mom”. She didn’t start her family until her mid to late thirties. And was on the contraceptive “pill” from 16 years of age until her mid-thirties. So in reality, she had been ingesting synthetic oestrogen for between 15-20 years to manipulate her fertility cycle. She notices she has gained quite a bit of weight (really fat) over the last decade. The synthetic oestrogen in the “pill” is classic for depressing the thyroid gland and slowing the metabolic rate which governs how many calories you burn daily for energy. With that slower metabolic rate, she now stores a larger percentage of what she eats. She loves to eat chicken (more synthetic oestrogen and anti-biotics unless it’s organic & hormone free) 3-4 times a week.
With the stresses of being the mother of three and holding down a demanding job, she is literally exhausted. She reaches for and consumes large amounts of caffeine and sugar and poor quality high-glycemic carbohydrates. Cakes, cookies, brownies, muffins…You get the picture. All of these sugars, stimulants and carbs raise her insulin levels, insulin is a storage hormone which additionally along with the sluggish thyroid, causes her to store more body fat. And these poor quality carbs contain high amounts of “trans fats” which are not found in nature. They are created by heating poor quality oils and forcing hydrogen gas through them which changes them chemically making them very stable and giving the poor quality carb product a very long shelf-life. Good for sales. Not good for bodies. Why am I mentioning this? Because these “trans fats” create havoc for the liver and this stressed out mother of three starts to experience some uncomfortable bowel patterns, usually constipation and a host of other symptoms from her now congested liver.
Now that her liver is struggling to detoxify her bowel, she now starts to experience some hormonal imbalances. The physical, chemical and emotional stresses of her lifestyle now start to affect her adrenal glands which become tired and depleted and help to add more pressure on the faulty endocrine system. It’s not that she isn’t intelligent, it’s just that these cravings she has for these snack foods she is consuming is the body’s attempt to “quick fix” the low blood-sugar levels. It’s a temporary “quick fix” with a “yo-yo” effect. Her bowel now is in an opportunistic phase. She is ripe for fungal over-growth especially with the past anti-biotics in high amounts in chicken but also in other meats and milk and cheese.
She also might be someone who would be taking a lot of anti-biotics in pill form whenever she gets an inkling of a cold because she can’t afford to get sick. This all leads to a vicious cycle of not digesting and absorbing nutrients properly. More fatigue. And I’m hoping you and the audience are getting the picture. She’s tired, heavier, stressed and depressed. She wants and needs help! And once helped, needs some good education. Some good books and websites so she can start looking after herself which in turn helps her take care of her family!
What you must do for her is just what I described before. Identify the root causal factors involved with her organ & glandular systems which are stressed and depleted. Through manual muscle testing with muscles related to these organs & glands you can accurately identify which are involved and if there are any infections present. You must then in order of priority intervene by stimulating certain reflexes which will help get the organs & glands involved function better and supplementing nutritionally like I mentioned earlier. It will not need to be indefinite, and some supplementation could “over-stimulate” the organs & glands involved. So again, find a practitioner that can do this properly.
This super-mom would need along with other nutritional supplementation a gentle liver cleanse and detoxification to flush out the remaining synthetic oestrogen anti-biotics, and any fungal overgrowth if present. If not, it’s like painting over rust. You have to get rid of the “offenders” if you want the permanent fix. As I mentioned earlier with supplementation: they must be of high quality, the right dosage and duration. The individual is not on anything indefinitely. And the practitioner ultimately wants to see a neutral test for the substance or substances being used nutritionally speaking. This means you no longer need it.
The involved organs or glands become balanced and healthy and the body reaches homeostasis. You then can just check the individual maybe monthly for a period of time to make sure they’re traveling well with no recidivism. Your job is to get them off your table and help all the others out there that also need your help. So you have to look toward finding a practitioner who is trained in these procedures and can accurately assess your total body thoroughly and holistically.
