Immune Boost at PureBalance

Your immune system is a collective of cells, tissues and organs working together to fight off infections. Your body relies on factors such as nutrition, exercise, rest and good posture to maintain optimal health.

At PureBalance, we offer three services which provide a natural path to a healthier you.

1) Get Adjusted!

The systems in your body are coordinated and controlled by the nervous system. The nervous system runs through the spine and interacts with the immune system, learning how to adapt and protect your body. A spinal misalignment may cause neural dysfunctions, which in turn weakens your immune system. Lessen the stress on your body. Feel the benefits of an immune boost. Get an adjustment!

2) Get Acupuncture!

Acupuncture is a tried and true medical practice. At PureBalance we use acupuncture to reconfigure the energies in your body and balance your Chi. Acupuncture charges your body, giving you more strength to fight off viruses. Leave feeling energized, relaxed and recharged. Stay healthy. Get Acupuncture!

3) Get into the Far Infrared Sauna!

Spending regular time in a far infrared sauna can also help to boost your immune system. The far infrared sauna will raise the core body temperature, removing toxins and helping to keep the immune system strong and in good working order. Check out our sauna special and schedule your sauna sessions today!

Call PureBalance at 224-521-1212 and get started on the path to naturally boosting your immune system!

Cheers to a healthier you!


Are You Vitamin D Deficient?

Are You Vitamin D Deficient?

Vitamin D, also known as the sunshine vitamin, plays an important role in many of the body’s processes. Vitamin D is produced by your skin in response to exposure to ultraviolet radiation from natural sunlight. It Is not only Important for our immune system, skeletal and nervous system health but for our overall mental health as well.

Vitamin D deficiency is very common these days, especially in colder climates.

Statistics show that:

  • 40% of the U.S. population is Vitamin D deficient.
  • 48% of young girls (9-11 years old) are Vitamin D deficient.
  • Up to 60% of all hospital patients are Vitamin D deficient.
  • Up to 80% of nursing home patients are Vitamin D deficient.

Are you vitamin D deficient?

If the dark winter days are keeping you down in the dumps you might want to have your Vitamin D levels checked.

Don’t know your Vitamin D levels? No problem…we can help  Call PureBalance at 224-521-1212.

To bring low Vitamin D levels up into a healthy range, you will need a little bit more than just sunlight. Add PureBalance Vitamin D to your routine and feel the difference it can make.

Let the sun kiss your face once in a while. Your Vitamin D levels will love you for it!

Cheers to a healthier you!

Back to School Special

Have you ever wondered if your child’s behavior, lack of focus or anxiety could be linked to a nutritional deficiency or food allergy? What if you could support your child’s immune system so they weren’t sick all winter?  We live in a society of fast foods and convenience and as a result our children are much more nutritionally deprived than we were.

Nutritional deficiencies and food allergies may be at the root of:

  • Focus and attention issues
  • Poor performance academically and athletically
  • Chronic cold and infections
  • Digestive issues
  • Fatigue, malaise, and chronic pain
  • Anxiety, depression and sleep issues

What if you could test your child’s nutritional status and create a customized nutritional plan so they could reach their optimal academic and athletic potential?At PureBalance we have a simple blood and urine test available that does just that.

The single best test that we have found to assess the health status of children and teens is a Triad profile.  This 3-part test analyzes both the urine and the blood for both nutritional deficiencies and potential allergens.

The TRIAD® Profile allows simultaneous assessment of:

  • Vitamin and mineral deficiencies
  • Essential amino acid deficiencies
  • Oxidative stress and antioxidant status
  • Detoxification capacity
  • Functional status of B-vitamins
  • Brain chemistry imbalances
  • Cellular energy status
  • Specific markers of bacterial and yeast overgrowth in the intestines
  • Food sensitivities
  • Intestinal inflammation/malabsorption

Get this school year off to a great start by scheduling your child’s Triad profile today!  Call PureBalance at 224-521-1212.

Cheers to a healthier you!

Are Grains Really Good For You?

“Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food.”- Hippocrates

We are led to believe that grains are an essential element in a healthy diet. We are told that eating high-fiber whole grains may help reduce the risk of heart disease, prevent or treat diabetes, and reduce cholesterol. Grains occupy the entire base and largest space on the food pyramid.  Should we question whether they are healthy for us?

Interestingly, scientific and historical research shows that humans have not always consumed grains, and in fact some would argue the body was not designed to function on grains at all! Based on this research we have asked our patients to reduce their intake of grains and in some cases we are suggesting to go grain free. Grains include processed and whole grain products such as wheat, barley, rye, oats, spelt, teff, rice, amaranth, millet, buckwheat, sorghum, and corn. These grains are used to make products like cereal, crackers, cookies, breads, and pasta. Grains contain anti-nutrients and cause big fluctuations in insulin levels, which promotes inflammation in the body.  Let’s discuss each of these issues in detail.

Reason #1:

Grains contain anti-nutrients.

Anti-nutrients are elements within a food that either prevent or disrupt the proper digestion and absorption of nutrients contained in that food. The more grains you eat the more anti-nutrients you have in your diet. If you eat cereal for breakfast, a sandwich for lunch, and a bowl of pasta for dinner you are being exposed to a huge amount of anti-nutrients.  Phytates are anti-nutrients. Phytates make minerals bio-unavailable as they bind to the minerals in our foods and prevent their absorption. Minerals like calcium, magnesium, iron, and zinc are crucial for health and healing, but in the presence of phytates they are blocked from being absorbed by the body. This causes mineral deficiency which can result in a wide variety of symptoms that include, but are not limited to, suppressed immunity, fatigue, insomnia, irritability, heart palpitations, muscle cramps, constipation, hormonal imbalance, restless leg syndrome, muscle spasms, asthma, migraines, PMS and infertility.

Lectins are anti-nutrients that are sugar-binding proteins resistant to digestive enzymes and stomach acid. Lectins stick to the cells in the lining of the small intestines causing a weakness in digestive function. They are sticky like glue, and their stickiness is what clogs your digestive tract and blocks the absorption of nutrients. Overconsumption of lectin rich foods can build up over the years and cause sludge to form on your bowel walls keeping the intestines in a constant state of inflammation.

One way to address the problem of anti-nutrients in grains is to soak and/or sprout them. Some cultures prepare their grains by sprouting and soaking them before preparation and eating. This process dramatically reduces anti-nutrients and makes the actual nutrients present in grains available for absorption. If sprouting and soaking your own grains is not an option there are many health food stores and supermarkets that are already fully stocked with sprouted-grain products. Sprouted-grain breads are easy to find in the freezer section of most grocery stores.

Reason #2:

Grains contain gluten.

Gluten is the protein component in wheat, rye, and barley.  It makes pizza dough stretchy, gives bread its spongy texture, and is used to thicken sauces and soups. The latest research from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that around 1% of the population has Celiac’s disease, an autoimmune response to gluten that damages the small intestine. A Celiac patient reacts to trace amounts gluten in their diet. Although only a small percentage of people have Celiac’s, research shows a larger percentage of the population is sensitive to gluten and wheat. Some researches estimate that 30-40% of people of European decent are gluten intolerant. In addition to that Allopathic medicine has recently recognized a new group of diagnoses called non-celiac gluten sensitivity disorders. These conditions include digestive issues, cognitive and behavioral disorders, and neurological conditions that are caused by immune reactions to gluten in the diet.  Unfortunately for many, the long-term results of consuming gluten can cause permanent damage to their immune and nervous systems.

Gluten free grains such as millet, amaranth, rice, buckwheat, sorghum, corn and teff also contain anti nutrients, cause insulin fluctuations and promote inflammation in the body.  We recommend these grains in limited amounts. Pure oatmeal does not contain gluten, but most oatmeal brands on the market today are not pure — they contain oats that have been cross-contaminated with small amounts of wheat, barley and/or rye.

Reason # 3:

Grain consumption causes spikes in insulin production.

Insulin is very important for storing nutrients and processing glucose (sugar). Our bodies simply can’t handle the insulin requirements demanded when we over consume grains on a daily basis.

Ingesting grains causes blood sugar levels to spike, causing a shock to your system. Both simple and complex carbs get converted into glucose but at different rates once they enter the body. Your pancreas compensates for this excess glucose in the bloodstream by secreting excessive levels of insulin. Over stressing your insulin response system over the years can lead to metabolic disorders like type 2 diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, and some cancers.

We could tell everybody to completely eliminate grains out of their diet, and those who do will thrive… It will lower their blood pressure, decrease cholesterol levels, dramatically improve energy levels, burn off belly fat, reduce inflammation, promote weight loss, alleviate dermatitis, acne, and digestive disturbances etc. Those who chose to stay on the grain train should choose their grains wisely and infrequently. Soak and sprout your grains, buy sprouted grains, and seek non-grain, high protein alternatives like almond flour and coconut flour for your baked goods. By changing your diet and lifestyle you can take an active role in improving your digestive system, which in turn, will improve your immune system, and your ability to resist chronic diseases. As for the food pyramid, we should turn it upside down and get our daily fiber and essential nutrients from foods like vegetables, fruits, proteins and healthy fats which offer a much higher nutrient profile without the drawbacks seen with grains. This decrease in grain consumption will allow you to create a new relationship with grains and will help manage your blood sugar, control insulin levels and decrease systemic inflammation, which is essential to restoring health and slowing the aging process.

Forget What You Know About Probiotics and Gut Health!

As I alerted you earlier this week, I’m writing to share some exciting information and clinical results about a product that I discovered and have been researching for the past two years. More importantly, this discovery has already yielded amazing results! Let me begin by telling you a couple of stories:

J.S. is a 53 year-old female with a history of transient irritable bowel attacks. The episodes usually lasted between two and three weeks, with the symptoms gradually subsiding over time. When J.S. came to see me, she had been experiencing acute abdominal pain, bloating, and diarrhea for three days. She was given Megaspore Biotic. Within two hours of the first dose, she said the symptoms subsided about 85-percent. Within 24-hours, the symptoms were completely resolved.

T.S is a 43 year-old man with a history of ulcerative colitis. The symptoms were acute, including extreme pain and disabling spasms throughout his intestinal tract, as well as bloody diarrhea. T.S. was prescribed Megaspore Biotic along with aloe vera juice. Within the first week, the stools returned to normal consistency and the bleeding stopped. He said the cramping symptoms decreased 50-percent. T.S. noticed an increase in cramping whenever he ate dairy products, and decided to stop eating them. With the removal of dairy foods and the continued supplementation of Megaspore Biotic, the symptoms T.S. was experiencing were completely resolved over a period of four weeks.

M.M. is a 17-month-old girl with chronic diaper rash. Her mother reported that the toddler’s first episode of diaper rash began six days after birth in reaction to antibiotic treatments. The child had not been free of a rash for more than two weeks her entire life, and also experienced severe bouts of diarrhea. M.M. was prescribed Megaspore Biotic. Within 10 days, the toddler’s rash was gone and her bowel movements were normal. We are happy to report that M.M. has now remained rash-free for five weeks. In addition, her mother reported that M.M. is gaining weight, sleeping better, and is generally happier than she has ever been.

Megaspore Biotic IS making a difference

Natural Medicine is my passion and I love witnessing the transformation of my patients’ health. The changes I’ve observed in the short period of time since the introduction of this new product have helped reaffirm my belief that the majority of chronic diseases begin in the digestive system.

Since opening my practice close to 20 years ago, the number one concern of the majority of my patients has been digestive issues. Many of them came to me with little hope after traditional medical protocols didn’t work. Consequently, I’ve focused or obsessed about digestive health for quite some time. To help my patients, I’ve recommended or created a number of products that have yielded mixed results. However, I finally know I have found the nutritional supplement that is qualitatively making a difference: Megaspore Biotic!

If you are receiving this email, chances are our paths crossed in some way. You or a member of your family are a patient of my Natural Medicine practice; you may be a professional colleague, or you may have elected to follow my newsletter after searching for alternative medical information and discovering the Pure Balance Health Center website online. Whatever the reason, I am grateful to have the opportunity to share with you the research and the data which demonstrates why the discovery of Megaspore Biotic has far reaching implications for both health and disease management.

If you or someone you know suffers from any form of digestive discomfort, food sensitivities, IBS, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, obesity, joint pain, or even asthma, then I implore you to read all of this information because it will dramatically impact your life. If you or someone you know has an immune system condition, such as eczema, allergies, auto-immune condition, or any imbalance or disease associated with a weakened immune system, this information is essential.

The most in-depth research ever conducted on probiotics

Before I tell you more about Megaspore Biotic, I have to share the research, which will provide the context for your understanding why this is a major breakthrough.

Five years ago, the National Institute of Health (NIH) began the Human Microbiome Project (HMP). Two hundred scientists from 83 of the world’s top universities contributed their expertise to research and better understand the bacteria living in and on our bodies, and the role it plays in health and disease. The findings, which were first published in 2012, were astonishing. Here is what we NOW know:

  • We are more bacteria than human – 10 trillion human cells vs. 100 trillion bacteria cells.
  • There are more than 1,000 different species of microorganisms in each individual’s digestive tract out of nearly 35,000 possible species.
  • Bacterial genes outnumber human genes 150-to-1 (25,000 human genes vs. 3.3 million microbial genes).
  • No two individuals have the exact same composition – not even twins.
  • Disease is associated with a disruption of the ecology of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract (Crohn’s disease, IBS, asthma and even obesity)

In an effort to understand the role of supplemental probiotics (beneficial bacteria that can enter and inhabit the gut) in health and disease, the researchers recognized the need to define the function of the probiotic. These criteria are the result of millions of dollars of research; the most in-depth probiotic research ever conducted:

  • In order to act as a probiotic, the bacteria must be a species that normally occurs in the individual’s digestive tract. It must have a position in the microbiota or it won’t be able to settle and colonize.
  • Probiotics offer benefits through their stimulatory effects on the immune system in the gut and by reaching a critical mass to produce beneficial compounds. To be of benefit, it must have higher numbers than what naturally exists in the gut to colonize and cause stimulation.
  • Supplemented probiotics, by evolution, should naturally occur in the environment (where they gain exposure to the host) and be stable both in the environment and the GI tract.

Results that can’t be denied

You may be surprised to learn that based on these criteria, every commercially available probiotic currently sold in drugstores, physicians’ offices, and local health food stores don’t fit the bill. Lactobacillus sp. and bifidobaceter sp. are the dominant probiotic strains in commercially available probiotic supplements and commonly added to foods. While it’s true that these bacteria do occur naturally in the intestinal tract, there are a few additional facts that the research brought to light.

The populations of Lactobacillus sp. and bifidobaceter sp. are first introduced to our systems via our mothers – through natural (vaginal) childbirth and breast-feeding. They are GI tract anaerobes, meaning they can’t sustain themselves in an oxygen-rich environment outside of the GI tract.

Secondly, these are some of the most predominant organisms in our digestive system with upwards of 20 trillion of these bugs in an average intestinal tract. In order for probiotics to have an immune-stimulating effect they need to be supplemented in concentrations higher than what naturally exists. The best of these commercially available products claim upwards of 100 billion organisms per dose, which isn’t even close to the 20 trillion already there. Lactobacillus sp. and bifidobaceter sp., even at dosages of 100 billion, simply can’t offer healthy immune-stimulation from dose-to-dose. It’s like adding a single drop of dye to a swimming pool and hoping to change the color of the water in the entire pool.

During studies of the oral administration of Lactobacillus sp., HMP researchers found that there was absolutely no impact on the concentrations of these organisms in the GI tract. They concluded that close to 100 percent of the lactobacilli were destroyed by the stomach acid before they could even reach the lower GI tract.

The bottom line: Lactobacillus sp. and bifidobaceter sp. cannot survive the harsh conditions of the stomach when supplemented orally and their numbers are influenced most by the birth process and the first year of life. After that, the numbers stay pretty constant throughout our lives. Consequently, Lactobacillus sp. and bifidobaceter sp should not be classified as probiotics but rather be classified as normally occurring organisms that inhabit our gut (gut commensal organisms).

HMP turns Probiotic Industry Upside Down

It is very important to say at this time that Lactobacillus sp. and bifidobaceter sp products have been somewhat beneficial. I have used them for years and my own experience has taught me that some patients benefited from the supplementation of these organisms. I believe that future research will show that these organisms, even when they are dead, will positively impact the pH of the intestinal tract, which can be very beneficial to someone with digestive symptoms.

At the same time, this information also explains the limited benefits experienced after oral supplementation of Lactobacillus sp. and bifidobaceter sp, and why they don’t last long after supplementation stops. The transient effect associated with pH changes requires daily dosing with no long-term benefits once supplementation ceases, and the benefits offer relief for a very small number of conditions. Whatever the reason may be, the facts are the facts. Lactobacillus sp. and bifidobaceter sp supplements are not capable of consistently modulating immune function in the gut, and immune modulation is a key quality for a true probiotic organism. Remember: Nearly 80 percent of our immune function is in the GI tract. True probiotics play a major role in its form and function. Thus, if a probiotic can’t effectively enter, colonize and create the immune stimulation, by definition, it’s not a probiotic!

Based on the results of the Human Microbiome Project’s research of bacteria, the crashing noise that you now hear is the probiotic industry turned upside down. Thankfully, the research also found the real answer.

Introducing Spore Bacteria

The answer is Spores! Spore-form bacteria are robust organisms that can survive the harsh environment of the stomach 100 percent intact. Through the evolutionary process, nature designed them to be transferred from human-to-human via the environment and food. They have evolved to be very stable in the environment and also to colonize the GI tract very effectively. In fact, studies have shown that certain developments of the human immune system specifically require spores.

What do we know about spores?

  • They are found all over the environment (soil, vegetation, dust, rocks, aqua-environments, digestive systems of insects, marine life, mammals, etc.) which means as a probiotic they are evolutionarily supported – a true probiotic.
  • Spores remain dormant until they get to the intestinal tract and then they colonize the bowel.
  • They are universally found in the human microbiota. They are normal organisms of our digestive tract.
  • There is a LONG history of use in industries where efficacy is closely measured, for example the pharmaceutical and agriculture industries.
  • Human studies have proven spores to be extremely safe and efficient.

Spore bacteria that are not in spore state will be destroyed by the stomach acid just like any other bacteria. The key is cultivating the spores using technology that ensures that the bacteria are maintained in spore form until it gets past the stomach and into the small intestine.

Physicians Exclusive Licenses the Technology

As I mentioned in the beginning, I’ve been obsessed with helping my patients heal from digestive challenges that were painful, limiting or controlling their lives. When I first learned about the potential of spore bacteria I knew I had to take action. I so deeply believed in the results of the research that I acquired the exclusive rights to distribute this patented product in the United States. I formed a new company – Physician’s Exclusive, LLC – of which I am the President.

The mission of this email is to introduce you to MegaSpore Biotic, the first of its kind, all-spore, pharmaceutical grade probiotic with the patented carotenoid rich HU36 strain. Here’s what you need to know:

  • It was developed under the advisement of spore expert Dr. Simon Cutting, Ph.D., by a practitioner for exclusive distribution by medical practitioners.
  • It utilizes verified, branded and registered strains – the only way to ensure proper characterization. Guaranteed prescription-grade and licensed from Royal Holloway at London University.
  • It is the only nutritional supplement probiotic on the market that contains Bacillus Clausii – a strain tested for more than 50 years, and is the best-selling probiotic prescription product in the world.
  • It contains five bacillus spore probiotics– the value of each strain is substantiated by a history of use and published science.
  • All strains are produced in a GMP facility under drug manufacturing guidelines.
  • It is the single-most, powerful spore probiotic formulation, and it delivers more than four billion live probiotic cells daily – a dose that matches and exceeds all prescription products of the same strains.
  • It is blended with a pre-biotic to enhance GI tract colonization
  • Its 100 percent spore format guarantees maximum survivability and precise dosing
  • It is the most broad-spectrum probiotic. The clinically studied strains used in the formulation offer more than 35 indications for use in practice.
  • It is the FIRST probiotic formulation to deliver powerful, highly-bioavailable carotenoids via in-vivo production. Bacillus indicus is a patented, carotenoid rich strain.

Not only have we established and demonstrated that Megaspore Biotic delivers the true probiotic function, but there are also the added health benefits of these bacteria-manufacturing nutrients, such as B-Vitamins, Nattokinase, Vitamin K2, Quinols and Carotenoids. The spore formulation makes it possible for these nutrients to be produced at the site of absorption so they are considered the most bioavailable nutrients. In particular, the carotenoids in Megaspore Biotic have been extensively documented and identified as alpha carotene, beta-carotene, zeaxanthin, asaxanthin, lycopene and lutein. These are all, exceptionally beneficial antioxidants that have excellent free radical quenching activity.

Why Megaspore Biotic is superior to any other Probiotic

Let’s review the HMP project criteria for probiotics:

1. Must have a position in the microbiota

MegaSpore Biotic qualifies! All strains in MegaSpore Biotic are human derived and have a firm place in the microbiota.

2.  Must have sufficient numbers to colonize and cause stimulation for benefit.

MegaSpore Biotic  is dosed at a concentration that is 2000 times higher than the native population in the GI tract.

3.   Supplemented Probiotics, by evolution, should naturally occur in the environment (where they gain exposure to the host) and be stable both in the environment and the GI tract.

MegaSpore Biotic is nature’s very own probiotic. Spores use the environment as a vector for transfer from host to host and are uniquely adapted to be stable in the environment and in the GI tract. We are capturing the power of millions of years of evolution in every dose.

Yours in Health and Action,

Dr. Tom Bayne, D.C.

 


Protect Yourself and Your Family from the “Flu Epidemic”

The bombardment of daily news reports about the “flu epidemic” sweeping the nation has prompted us to send out this special newsletter. The best way to protect yourself and your family from the flu is to bolster your immune system.

Remember: Prevention is the key to protecting your health!

The Real Reason You Become Ill

Most people believe they can catch a cold or the flu from other people. However, the truth is only a small percentage of people exposed to a pathogen will become ill. The vast majority will not experience any symptoms at all! That’s because viruses and bacteria are not the only source of colds or the flu. The internal environment of your body is the real reason you’re susceptible to any infection. Germs will only lead to illness when the body is out of balance and the immune system is in a weakened state.

Factors that contribute to the body being out of balance and a weakened immune system include poor nutrition, dehydration, overuse of antibiotics, lack of sleep, excessive environmental toxins, and physical, mental or emotional stress. But, by making a few changes now, it’s possible to strengthen your body’s natural immunity.

At PureBalance Natural Family Health Center, we offer a simple and gentle approach to prevention – the PureBalance Botanical Remedies PureLung and PureLymph. These remedies are the perfect combination of organic or wild-crafted herbs, which work synergistically to boost your body’s immune system and bolster its ability to defend against bacteria and viruses. In addition, this combination actually destroys and eliminates any existing infections in the body. All of the PureBalance Botanicals are the most complete and potent botanical remedies available!

Health-Protecting Tips:

The best offense available for preventing colds or flu is to follow these health-protecting tips:

  •   Keep your body well-hydrated
  •   Get plenty of rest
  •   Eat a balanced diet rich in greens, fruit, lean proteins, nuts, seeds, and limited sprouted grains
  •   Be sure to eliminate processed foods, fast foods and refined sugar.
  •   Take 30 drops each of PureLung and PureLymph diluted in some water daily

Another way to ensure your immune system is up for the “epidemic” battle is to check your serum vitamin D levels. Low levels of vitamin D are associated with weather-related depression, low immunity and increased risks for infection. Vitamin D should be taken with your heaviest meal to insure the body’s optimal absorption of this essential nutrient. Don’t know your vitamin D levels? Call us we can help!

 Just in case:  The Best Response

Sometimes the levels of stress in your life can deplete the immune system, making an even well-balanced body susceptible to illness. In that case, a swift response to the onset of cold or flu symptoms can greatly shorten the duration and severity of being ill.

The first step is recognizing the changes in your body as soon as they occur:  a runny nose, glassy eyes, sore throat, headache, sinus pain, cough or fatigue are the most common, first signs of a cold or the flu.

When those signs appear, immediately increase the dosage of PureLung and PureLymph to 30 drops, three times per day. These same botanicals serve as both a barrier to entry and the ammunition to eliminate infection.

Also be sure to drink plenty of water, get extra rest, drink immune boosting green drinks, and eat our immune-boosting soup.

If an infection sets in…

If a routine cold turns into full blown sinusitis (inflammation of the sinuses) or an upper respiratory infection, consider Neurological Stress Reduction Therapy (NSRT). NSRT will help you better understand the nature of the infection, as well as check the function of all the systems of the body. The subsequent protocols we develop will work specifically against the type of infection your body is experiencing, and work to reverse the organ and gland weaknesses responsible for chronic infection.

A recent study in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) found that antibiotic therapy for sinusitis was ineffective. However, sinusitis does respond very well to acupuncture sessions, which are available at our clinic. The best results are achieved when acupuncture is combined with low level laser for specific anti-inflammatory and immune boosting effects.

Bounce Back Faster with Far-Infrared Sauna

Far-Infrared Sauna (FIR) is an excellent way to boost your immune system and mobilize your body’s defenses against infection. FIR saunas are safer than traditional saunas because there are no hot surfaces or high temperatures. Less than 20 percent of the infrared energy heats the air, leaving 80 percent available to be directly converted to heat within the body.

FIR creates two to three times more sweat volume of the body than conventional saunas. This deep heating, along with sweating, is responsible for the healing effects and the other health benefits associated with FIR, including detoxification, cardiovascular conditioning, and calorie burning.

Research also shows that using the FIR Sauna shortens the duration of colds and the flu. The immune benefits are unsurpassed, and the relaxation effects alone make it worth the time and trip to our office. We provide a rain-shower, organic soap and shampoo and towels to enhance your sauna experience.

PureBalance Natural Family Health Center Is Your Prevention Center

Your best chance for avoiding the “flu epidemic” is to think prevention and take immediate action at the first signs of symptoms. Be sure your family has on hand the supplements needed to stay healthy this winter.

The Best Way to Beat a Cold or the Flu is to PREVENT it – Get Started Today!

The fall season is here and with its arrival we’re experiencing cooler temperatures. You can take action today to prepare yourself and your family for the coming “cold and flu season.”  Prevention is the key!

The Real Reason You Become Ill

Most people believe they can catch a cold or the flu from other people. You’ll often hear someone say, “The flu is going around,” and then express concern that they may get it from an ill person who shares their workspace or living environment.

But the truth is only a small percentage of people exposed to a pathogen will become ill. The vast majority will not experience any symptoms at all! That’s because viruses and bacteria are not the only source of colds or the flu. The internal environment of your body is the real reason you’re susceptible to colds, flu or any other infections. Germs will only lead to illness when the body is out of balance and the immune system is in a weakened state.

Factors that contribute to the body being out of balance and a weakened immune system include poor nutrition, dehydration, overuse of antibiotics, lack of sleep, excessive environmental toxins, and physical, mental or emotional stress. By making a few key changes now, however, it’s possible for you and your family to avoid becoming ill this winter.

Take the offense

At Pure Balance Natural Family Health Center, we offer a simple and gentle approach to prevention: Pure Balance Botanical Remedies PureLung and PureLymph. These remedies are the perfect combination of herbs, which work synergistically to boost your body’s immune system and bolster its ability to defend against bacteria and viruses. In addition, this combination actually destroys and eliminates any existing infections in the body.*

Coupled with keeping your body well-hydrated, and eating a balanced, predominantly alkaline diet, taking 30 drops, one time per day of PureLung and PureLymph is the best offense for keeping your body in balance and able to prevent colds or flu.

All of the PureBalance Botanicals are manufactured in a unique way, based on the ancient tradition of spagyrics processing, which makes them the most complete and potent botanical remedies available anywhere!  In addition, all PureBalance botanicals use herbal ingredients that are organic or wild crafted.

Just in case:  The Best Response

Sometimes the levels of stress in your life can deplete the immune system, making an even well-balanced body susceptible to illness. In that case, a fast response to the onset of cold or flu symptoms can greatly shorten the duration of being ill.

The first step is recognizing the changes in your body as soon as occur:  a runny nose, glassy eyes, sore throat, headache, sinus pain, cough or fatigue are the most common, first signs of a cold or the flu.

When those signs appear, immediately increase the dosage of PureLung and PureLymph to 30 drops, three times per day. These same botanicals serve as both a barrier to entry and the ammunition to eliminate infection.

Also be sure to drink plenty of water and other warm liquids (like our yummy soup recipe), and get extra rest.

Check Your Vitamin D Levels before Winter Arrives

One of the best ways to ensure your immune system is up for the cold-weather battle is to check your serum vitamin D levels.  Low levels of vitamin D are associated with weather=related depression, low immunity and increased risks for infection. Call our office today to schedule a vitamin D assessment.

If Infection Sets in…

If a routine cold turns into full blown sinusitis (inflammation of the sinuses) or an upper respiratory infection, consider Neurological Stress Reduction Therapy (NSRT).  NSRT will help us better understand the nature of the infection, as well as check the function of all the systems of the body. The subsequent protocols we develop will work specifically against the type of infection your body is experiencing, and work to reverse the organ and gland weaknesses responsible for chronic infection.

A recent study in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) found that antibiotic therapy for sinusitis was ineffective.  However, sinusitis does respond very well to acupuncture sessions at our clinic. The best results are achieved when acupuncture is combined with low level laser for specific anti-inflammatory and immune boosting effects.
