The Silent Whiplash

Silent Whiplash

If you’ve watched small kids tumble and play, it can seem pretty rough to an adult. As we age, we know that balancing on our heads or whipping our necks around can only cause trouble. Most adults understand this point but seem to think children are more immune to problems for some reason. But is this plausible? Are kids really injury-proof? Not likely and recent research shows that degeneration of the spinal disks can occur at a much earlier age than previously thought. MRI studies of child athletes show this to be the case.

So what happens when a kid takes a whollup to the head, or slips and falls onto the kitchen floor? Besides a blow to the head, the neck can, and does, get injured from these types of forces. Because of a child’s age, the pain may only last a few days, but a silent problem can develop. A small sprain to the ligaments of the neck that hold the vertebrae in their proper position can only be diagnosed through x-ray, but most kids don’t get films taken. When the pain goes away we think the actual problem has gone away too.

Over time, the improper alignment and disrupted motion can lead to degeneration arthritis. This, in turn, will lead to stiffness and interfere with our quality of life.

So can a whiplash be a silent injury? Most likely yes, but over time it will eventually rear its ugly head. Then, when we finally visit a doctor, we are told of disk degeneration and we really don’t know why this is the case. Is it old age? Well, the disks that are not degenerated are the same age as the disks that are a problem. So it really can’t be an old age problem. Maybe it’s an older discovery, but the problem existed long before. These minor tumbles and whiplashes we experience in our youth do have lasting consequences.

Alzheimer’s or Brain Diabetes?

Alzheimer's Brian Diabetes

A growing body of research suggests there’s a powerful connection between your diet and your risk of Alzheimer’s disease via similar pathways that cause type 2 diabetes.

Back in 2005, a published medical paper introduced a new disease tentatively dubbed “type 3 diabetes”.

The researchers learned that, in addition to the pancreas, your brain also produces insulin.

They discovered that without the insulin your brain cells will die.

A drop in insulin production in your brain may contribute to the degeneration of your brain cells, and studies have found that people with lower levels of insulin and insulin receptors in their brain often have Alzheimer’s disease.

Studies since 2005 have continually documented that insulin has a much greater role in the brain than previously expected.

Insulin is directly responsible for neuron glucose-uptake, and the regulation of neurotransmitters like acetylcholine, which are crucial for memory and learning.

Scientists have come to understand that cognition is impaired when insulin levels are reduced.

The clinical research has made it quite clear that the same pathological process that leads to insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes may also hold true for your brain.

The take away from these studies make a strong point that the over-consumption of sugars and “grains” which are also detrimental to the the development of diabetes may also result in Type 3 Diabetes (brain diabetes).

When the brain becomes overwhelmed by the consistently high levels of glucose, the insulin signaling will eventually become blunted or desensitized. This will lead to impairments in your thinking and memory abilities, eventually causing permanent brain damage.

Healthcare clinicians trained in functional medicine have the training and knowledge to investigate what is at the root of the pathological process that leads to Type 2 diabetes and the new diagnosis of Type 3 diabetes.

The one size fits all approach of prescriptive medications for diabetes, although of some value, will not shut down the physiological cascade of the consequences of poor sugar/insulin control.

“Get Your Life Back” Reason 7 & 8

Today I will be discussing reasons 7 & 8 since they are closely linked. 

Reason 7: Even though you’ve been told your lab tests are normal, you still may have a thyroid condition.

The most common lab tests performed to evaluate your Thyroid are Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) and T4. However this is an incomplete picture of true thyroid health. Even though these two commonly used markers (TSH & T4) are often said to be normal other Thyroid test that are usually not performed can prove to show you have a thyroid disorder, but because these other test are not widely used you may suffer for years before being diagnosed. This may explain why even though your lab test are normal you still suffer from symptoms of a Thyroid condition

Reason 8: Learn which lab tests are usually not performed, but should be, especially with Hypothyroidism.

As discussed in the previous email the most commonly performed lab test are TSH & T4, which do not give a complete picture of your thyroid. The #1 cause of Hypothyroidism in the US is Hashimoto’s Autoimmune Thyroid. 90% of all Hypothyroid is caused by this disease. The only way to find out if this is causing your Thyroid issues is by specific lab work, in particular by checking to see if you have anti-bodies against your own Thyroid tissue. Unfortunately most practitioners don’t run these labs. So you can take all the prescribed medication for low Thyroid hormone you want, however if you have thyroid tissue destruction from anti-bodies against your own Thyroid, your Thyroid will never get better and you will continue to suffer from Thyroid symptoms. You will continue to suffer from difficulty losing weight, low energy and not feeling your best even with “diet” and exercise. Find out if you have anti-bodies that are destroying your thyroid.

Reason 6: The foods you’re eating may not only be the cause, but can be destroying your Thyroid.

The very food you are eating on a daily basis may not only be the cause of your Thyroid condition, but can even be destroying Thyroid tissue. This destruction of the Thyroid will lead to Thyroid disease. Research shows that some foods resemble Thyroid tissue molecularly. This means if you have immunity against certain foods which you may not know of and continue eating those foods, your immune system will turn around and begin to attack your Thyroid leading to health complications.
