Where have you been Dr. Edling?

Wow, I just noticed it’s been 2 months since my last post.  Holy cow that’s the longest time spread I think I’ve ever done.  So this is what I’ve been up too.

I’ve been studying.  I spent 24 hours with Dr. Dr. Datis Kharrazian who is the author of “Why do I still have thyroid symptoms when my lab tests are normal”, and “Why isn’t my brain working”  This was an excellent 3 day weekend of very intense study on thyroid, and especially auto-immune thyroid.  90% of all thyroid problems I see are auto-immune related.  The problem for patients is that they are frustrated because even with the meds they don’t feel good.  The reason is no one has addressed the immune system which is attacking the thyroid, not just TSH levels.  I see a lot of people who have had great success with our auto-immune protocols.  Identifying underlying triggers and healing gut fucntion is imperative to success with any auto-immune conditon.    80% of your immune system lies with your gut-microbiome so it’s imperative you have good gut function.  This is just about impossibe with the standard american diet.   Our diet is the worst in the world and it’s one of the reasons we have so much sickness and disease in our society.  We have a bad source of food which is toxic to our gut and our brain because it causes massive amounts of inflammation.  If you have a bad gut micro-biome you will surely have a bad brain down the road.

Time for a little baseball.

There are specific strategies to calm the immune response down which is destroying your thyroid and put this auto-immune attack at bay.  Because once you are auto-immune in one area it’s just looking for another place to attack.  Cyrex labs have developed a test which is a predictor of  any other auto-immune attack to your body.  Your brain, your gut, your muscles, your nervous system, your joints, and many other areas that will predict what your future looks like unless you do something now.  They also have very sophisticated food sensitivty tests that we use (array 4 and 10), which can show us if you are putting fuel to the fire.  If you are eating foods that unknowningly make you worse then you must not eat these or else you will get worse.  Wouldn’t it be nice to find out what foods you may be sensitive to?

Look for upcoming workshops on thyroid and auto-immunity.  You can check my business facebook page Edling Chiropractic and wellness. Here is the link.  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Edling-Chiropractic-and-Wellness/87940295179?fref=ts

Mary and I are now empty nesters.  Our son Riley graduated a few weeks ago and will be heading off to Concordia University in St.Paul where he will also be playing D 2 football.  Congrats to all the other seniors.  it’s been a great joy watching these kids grow and mature and have successes on and off the field.

We will not be in the clinic this friday June 5th.  We are headed down to watch Riley and his 4×200 and 4x 100 relay teams participate in the state track meet in laCrosse.  The state track meet is an incredible event.  There are some very talented boys and girls who really can bring it.  Last year was my first year ever attending and I was blown away how much fun it was.  I’ll be going back on a yearly basis.   I have anumber of track athletes who get adjusted for peak performance.  Congrats to them.  Going to state is pretty cool.

It’s finally getting nice out so get out and enjoy the sun.  Exercise is fuel for the brain.  It clears the fog and is the best anti depressant.

Come join me Saturday morning 9 am down by Cascade falls here in Oscela, I’ll be leading the “walk with the Doc”.  Just a fun 30 minute walk highlighting some of Osceola trail systems.  There will be one every month.  See you there.

Ok, it won’t be another 2 months until next post.  Get out there and be a Champ!
