Biochemistry of Inflammation Part IV

Biochemistry of Inflammation Part IV

I would like to share a couple of examples of how I applied the principles of the biochemistry of inflammation successfully in my practice. A mother brought her seven-year-old son into my office after months of unsuccessful treatment for throat infections, coughing, sinus infections, high fevers, ear infections, mysterious leg pains and headaches. He had been prescribed and he took antibiotics and used an inhaler for 5 months. When he came to me, he was still experiencing an ear infection (a very red ear), dizziness, difficulty waking in the morning, night sweats, leg and finger cramping, frequent urination and headaches.
After reviewing his medical history and completing an examination, I determined that the child was experiencing chronic inflammation (remember—redness, heat and swelling). In order to bring his body back into harmony with itself I recommended proper diet, supplements and pure water. This program was designed to build his immune system and to help his body successfully complete the biochemistry of inflammation. After two weeks the child went back to his medical doctor and was given a clean bill of health. All of his symptoms were gone! As we learned earlier, antibiotics block the movement of white blood cells into the area that needs healing. As a result the biochemistry of inflammation could not be completed in this child’s body, and therefore he could not heal. When we provided his body with the required nutrients, through diet and supplements, he healed quickly.
On another occasion a 20 year old woman entered my office with the following symptoms: migraines, severe joint pain, back and neck pain, hair loss, extreme fatigue and hormonal imbalance. Her rheumatologist diagnosed her with autoimmune disease and prescribed various medications (most of which were anti-inflammatory in nature). She suffered from serious side effects but enjoyed very little relief.
When she came to my office I took a comprehensive history and completed a physical exam. She still reported having all the above symptoms. It became apparent to me that she, too, was suffering from unresolved inflammation. I determined that the causes of her symptoms were food allergies, vitamin and mineral deficiencies as well as high levels of anxiety. In order to help resolve the inflammation and treat the causes of her problems I developed the following treatment program for her. It included: pure water, proper diet and whole food supplements. I also eliminated her allergies and we discussed ways of reducing her anxiety. She decided to slowly cut back on her medications. Her healing time was longer than it would have been without medications. Within six months of faithfully following the program she reported feeling great. Even an occasional dietary indiscretion did not cause a setback in her healing.

Both these cases involved high levels of unresolved inflammation. Each patient was trying to eliminate symptoms through the use of medication. Neither one was getting better. In fact, their conditions were deteriorating. In my opinion, healing is impossible without the ongoing resolution of the biochemistry of inflammation. This is done through natural means, including pure water, diet and whole food supplements in order to bring the body back into harmony with itself and its environment.
