PROLOTHERAPY

Weak ligaments and tendons are often the cause of pain and joint damage. Traditional approaches, such as surgery, physical therapy or anti-inflammatory drugs, often fail to stabilize the joint or provide lasting relief from pain. Prolotherapy directly addresses the cause of the instability by strengthening and healing stretched or torn ligaments and tendons. Improved function means less pain.Click here to go to this page

WEIGHT MANAGEMENT

It is irresponsible to burden a weight patient with the line “Eat less and exercise more.” The key to lasting weight management is not simple.

Probiotics and seasonal allergies

Following is an interesting article that discusses a possible relation between seasonal allergies and probiotics, which promote a healthy gut. Many health issues start in the gut, whether they seem related or not.

Take your probiotic supplements and eat probiotic-rich foods (yogurt, kimchi, sauerkraut) and you may see a reduction in your seasonal allergies! If you need additional help, we have supplements specifically for seasonal allergy relief, including Optimal Hist-Eze and Optimal ProBiotic.

Vanderbilt study: Yogurt could ease seasonal allergies

Adam Tamburin, The Tennesseean10:01 p.m. EDT May 25, 2015

Runny noses and sneezing go hand in hand with warmer weather for thousands of Middle Tennesseans, but a team of Vanderbilt University researchers has found that relief might come from an unlikely source: yogurt.

A wave of research has suggested a possible link between probiotics — or the “good” bacteria found in yogurt and dietary supplements — and seasonal allergy relief. A recent Vanderbilt study evaluated 23 existing reports, representing the most comprehensive review of that link to date.

Seventeen of those reports showed that probiotics led to relief of congestion, inflammation and other symptoms connected with seasonal allergies, also known as allergic rhinitis.Yogurt and Seasonal Allergies

“When you look at all the studies combined, there was a statistically significant improvement” in the patients’ symptoms and quality of life, lead author and Vanderbilt professor Dr. Justin Turner said in a news release.

Allergic rhinitis affects between 10 percent and 30 percent of the population, according to Turner’s study, which was published last month in the journal International Forum of Allergy & Rhinology. The Vanderbilt review included 1,919 patients.

Six of the reports Turner and his team reviewed suggested that probiotics had no effect on allergies.

“We also found that the studies were very variable, so they used a lot of different bacterial strains and treatment durations,” Turner said. “It’s hard to make any firm conclusions about that.”

Turner said “the jury is still out” on the impact of probiotics. He said the Vanderbilt study signals the need for more research on the topic.
