Illness and Premature Aging- a Call for Change!

Biological aging is related to a noticeable decline in normal function. Function of the digestive system declines with age, so do many other glandular and hormonal functions. Aging can be accelerated by various life style choices:

  • Heavy smokers seem to age faster. They have higher risk of age-related diseases such as cancer and heart disease.
  • People who consume excessive amounts of alcohol also seem to age faster. They have increased risk of liver and cardiovascular problems.
  • Those who consume poor quality diets that are excessive in carbohydrates (calories) and low in protein and other essential nutrients tend to age faster. They tend to suffer from obesity, diabetes, digestive stress, heart problems and frequent illness in general.
  • Drug addicts age faster. You see this in their complexion, their posture, the evidence of their mental decline.
  • Lack of physical activity appears to accelerate aging
  • Chronic stress accelerates aging
  • Environmental toxins in air and water accelerate aging.

The opposite is true, as well. We can slow our biological aging through changes in lifestyle, environment, and nutrition.

  • It is estimated that more than 75 percent of our health and life expectancy after age 40 can be positively influenced by making the appropriate changes!


Alternative Holistic Functional Medicine - Medicine of the Future

"The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease." Thomas A. Edison

The goal of Alternative Holistic Functional Medicine is to optimize health

  • by improving biomechanical (structural), biochemical and emotional/psychological function of the individual
  • through changes in lifestyle, environment, and nutrition.

Health is not seen as merely the absence of disease, but rather as an expression of vitality and well being. An ever increasing number of healthcare professionals are becoming aware of the shortcomings and failures of allopathic medicine.

Alternative Holistic Functional Medicine is slowly coming of age and is the true Medicine of the Future.


Alternative Holistic Functional Diagnostics

Many people do not feel good, but standard medical tests show little or nothing. X-rays, MRI's, standard blood and urine tests only show pathological changes. They are static in nature. Functional Medicine aims to determine what kinds of internal or external stressors cause the abnormal function which in turn causes the often very deceptive symptoms.

Everybody is different: Two individuals may have the same or similar underlying functional problems, but exhibit different symptoms. People with similar symptoms may have different underlying malfunctions. What is good for me, may not be good for you. What helps you may not be useful for me.

We change: What is true today, is not necessarily true tomorrow, next week, next month, next year.

  • Applied Kinesiology utilizes muscle response testing to evaluate the biomechanical(structural), biochemical and emotional (mental) functions on an individualized basis. This powerful methodology allows the skilled health practitioner to quickly evaluate functional imbalance, and to determine which biomechanical, biochemical/nutritional/dietary support and lifestyle changes might be appropriate to optimize health.


Holistic Alternative/Functional Therapy

  • Chiropractic Neurology
    The goal of Chiropractic is to remove structural stress from the body, optimize biomechanical function of the muskuloskeletal system, the spine and the various joints, and indirectly enhance the function of the nervous system. Changes in posture and life style are part of the equation.

    Chiropractic Neurology is an alternative holistic specialty within the chiropractic profession that deals with the functional instability of the brain and nervous system.

    Chiropractic Neurology - Functional Neurology is a drug free alternative for Neurological Conditions.

    Chiropractic Neurology Techniques focus on brain-based, non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical physical rehabilitation using afferent (receptor based) stimulation such as

    • chiropractic adjustments
    • movement
    • light
    • sound
    • taste
    • smell
    • and more

    in conjunction with nutritional therapies intended to restore balance and optimal brain and nervous system function.

  • Biochemical Nutritional Testing and Therapy
    The purpose of Nutritional Therapy is to correct nutritional deficiencies, restore biochemical and hormonal balance and optimize the physiological function of organs and organ systems. Dietary and life style changes are always part of the equation. Illness is a call for change.

  • Neuro Emotional Technique (N.E.T.)
    Stress and negative emotions can interfere with the normal functions of the body. The purpose of NET is to detect and to eliminate, or at least reduce the adverse effects of emotional imbalance on our health. Life style changes are usually part of the equation. Illness is a call for change.

  • Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Technique (NAET)
    Allergies are abnormal and exaggerated responses to all kinds of substances (allergens). The purpose of NAET is to determine the nature of these "allergens", to reduce or eliminate our abnormal responses and to restore normal physiological function. Life style changes are typically part of the equation. Illness is a call for change.

  • Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
    The power of LLLT lies in the fact that laser light can improve cell function. Consequently LLLT often improves and even restores the function of organs and organ systems. Examples are wound healing, diabetic non-healing ulcers, hearing loss, vertigo, chronic pain, infections, inflammations. Dietary, nutritional and life style changes are often part of the equation. Illness is a call for change.

  • Personal Portable Oxygen/O2 Bar Concentrator (PPOB)
    Oxygen/O2 is critical - your brain depends on adequate oxygen/O2 more than any other part of your body. As you age, you lose some of your capacity to utilze oxygen/O2, approx. 1% per year from the age of 20. Flood your body with more oxygen with Dr. Z's Personal Portable Oxygen/O2 Bar Concentrator (PPOB)!
