Brain Support and Recovery Trifecta–Ground, Relax, Circulate and Recover

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a term that is being used increasingly, thanks in part to the recognition of the consequences of concussions sustained in amateur and professional sports, notably American football. Beyond injuries in sports, however, the consequences of falls, car accidents, traumas incurred in and around the house, at school, even at work–how many ways can we hurt our heads?–the effects of severe and continued episodes of concussion have presented as major factors to health, happiness and vitality going forward in life.

It’s easy to enjoy grounding and earthing on a warm summer’s day in Sedona–rejuvenation for body and mind!

So, I’ve been keeping my eye on what I have seen to be some of the most promising support once a person has sustained an injury like this (and, in at least one of the items I’ll be mentioning, actually protecting the brain from greater injury if such an accident happens!)  While healthy nutrition, a balance of sleep/exercise/meditation and other adjunctive therapies such as acupuncture and medicinal grade essential oils are all part of what I would consider as part of this picture, the following modalities really, really shine in their support of brain health.

CBD Oils Cannabis oils (which I’ve referenced in another post), have shown tremendous support to the neural system both before injury, and after brain injury has occurred.  As mentioned before, this type of nutritional support is about pain relief and recovery–the use of standardized CBD oils from the hemp plant do not impart a psychoactive effect–but they do offer wellness support like nothing else I’ve seen.

(From the Medical Marijuana, Inc. educational portal): Cannabinoids have been shown to act on the CB1 and CB2 receptors of the endocannibinoid system, which in turn prevents the release of proinflammatory cytokines that are released after brain trauma and cause damage (Panikashvili, et al., 2006). Activating of the CB1 and CB2 receptors also has been shown to stimulate the release of minocycline, which reduces brain swelling and neurological impairment, and diffuses further injuries to the brain’s axons (Lopez-Rodriguez, et al., 2015) (Biegon, 2004).

In one study, cannabinoid administered to mice with brain injuries caused a significant reduction of brain swelling, as well as better clinical recovery, reduced infarct volume, and reduced brain cell death compared to the control group (Panikashvili, et al., 2001). In another, CBD was found to reduce acute and apoptotic brain damage (Castillo, et al., 2010). Piglets with brain injuries given CBD experienced less excitotoxicity, oxidative stress and inflammation (Pazos, et al., 2013).

Mice that had suffered an impact brain injury showed marked recovery in object recognition and in performing a specific task after CB1 receptors were activated (Arain, Khan, Craig & Nakanishi, 2015). Cannabinoids have even shown to be effective at offering neuroprotection in newborn babies that have experienced a brain injury (Fernandez-Lopez, Lizasoain, Moro & Martinez-Orgado, 2013).

Often, when there is a brain injury, there may be a spinal injury in conjunction–again, from the Medical Marijuana, Inc. education portal:

Cannabinoids have demonstrated that they can help limit the neurological damage if administered shortly after a spinal cord injury. Following trauma, a series of pathological events contribute to the spread of spinal cord damage and further provokes neurological losses (Arevalo-Martin, Garcia-Ovejero & Molina-Holgado, 2010). However, administering cannabinoids soon after the injury has been shown to reduce proinflammatory cytokines and delay neuronal atrophy and degeneration, thus preserving the white matter around injured area and protecting the myelin sheath that surrounds the cord (Latini, et al., 2014) (Arevalo-Martin, Garcia-Ovejero & Molina-Holgado, 2010).

In one study, a reduction in swelling and a preservation of white matter and myelin were shown when cannabinoids were administered 20 minutes following a spinal cord injury (Arevalo-Martin, et al., 2012). In another, rats with spinal cord injuries saw improvements in locomotor functional recovery (Kwiatkoski, Guimaraes & Del-Bel, 2012). A third study found, in addition to an improvement in neurological function, saw a decrease in compression lesion volume (Hong, et al., 2015).

By acting through the CB1 and CB2 receptors of the endocannabinoid system, the cannabinoids provide a neuro-protective response, prompting researchers to conclude that they can be a useful treatment for acute spinal cord injuries (Arevalo-Martin, Garcia-Ovejero & Molina-Holgado, 2010) (Arevalo-Martin, et al., 2012) (Arevalo-Martin, Molina-Holgado & Garcia-Ovejero, 2016).

In addition, cannabis has long been determined as effective for addressing neuropathic pain. Its use has been found to be among the most effective pain relief treatments for people with spinal cord injuries (Wilsey, et al., 2013) (Heutink, Post, Wollaars & van Asbeck, 2011)…For spinal cord injury patients experiencing spasms, cannabis may offer relief. Along with pain, muscle spasm is the most common reason that medical cannabis is recommended and prescribed by medical professionals (Borgelt, Franson, Nussbaum & Wang, 2013).

Studies have demonstrated that medical cannabis offers significant improvements in muscle spasticity, both in mice trials and in human subjects (Borgelt, Franson, Nussbaum & Wang, 2013) (Baker, et al., 2000). Spinal cord injured persons have reported that cannabis use decreased spasticity (Malec, Harvey & Cayner, 1982).

LED and Near-infrared Light Therapy: This is a non-invasive, comfortable therapy that I use with all my patients, whether there is TBI or not. It is a unique therapy that harnesses the healing powers of infrared light, emitting noted wavelengths of light energy that dramatically increase circulation to injury sites and areas of chronic pain, resulting in a rapid relief of discomfort, improved sense of wellness, and regeneration of damaged tissues. 

Flexible pads embedded with multiple infrared and visible red and blue diodes, are placed directly in contact with the skin over the area of pain or injury. Light energy from the diodes penetrates beneath the skin and is absorbed by proteins within cells that lay beneath the skin, which releases nitric oxide, the body’s natural vasodilator. After just 20 minutes of treatment, blood flow is increased to nerves and other tissues, and this boost in local circulation persists for several hours after the pads are removed.  My patients LOVE this therapy–and thankfully the units are available for home purchase.  Please send me an email if you’d like information on having your own system.  Here’s an incredible video showcasing the power of the lights when there has been injury to the brain.

Earthing  As was shared in the Journal of Environmental and Public Health in 2012, the impact of connecting with the earth’s surface electrons is one of the most healing activities we can undertake.  And while this seems easy enough to do, how many of us actually walk barefoot outdoors, or lie in direct contact with the earth (both activities our ancestors did daily–and so our bodies are expecting this connection) on a regular basis?  Personally, I live, sleep and work in a second-story setting–and for a good portion of the year it is so chilly that I wouldn’t dream of stepping out without my shoes.  So, my contact with the earth in this manner is GREATLY impacted (and I know better!)  Thankfully, there is technology that works with the actual electrical model of our homes and workplaces that can help us stay grounded through the electrons of the earth.  One company that has a great selection of well-made products is Earthing.

From yoga mats to bed sheets, their product selection will offer up a way for you to have direct contact of skin to Earthing product, to help you reap the benefit of a healthy dose of electrons.

Whether you’ve experienced a bad concussion at some time in your life, or you are wishing to support someone in your life who has, I hope these novel and impactful suggestions help to recover the health and vitality that is the birthright of each of us–injury or none.

EMF and Cell Phone Radiation Protection…The Most Effective I’ve Found

 

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 12.19.09 PMElectro-magnetic field (EMF) and heat radiation emissions from cell phones, tablets and laptop computers are issues that can be pretty easily dismissed…not too many people can physically feel the immediate effects of this type of pollution, but that doesn’t make their existence any less real.

The ease with which we are able to communicate, entertain ourselves, study and share via cell phones, tablets and laptop computers has been a fantastic push in the use of technology.  But as these devices have become lighter, more portable and smaller, their close proximity to us–usually for sustained periods in a pocket, purse or backpack–has kept us in the field of extremely low frequency EMF radiation, heat radiation and radio frequency emission.

But who cares?  If we can’t see, hear, taste or feel something, that generally means we don’t give it much thought.  But remembering that there are PLENTY of ways we see effect of something without using our senses for the Point A to Point B connection–wireless, remote control of the TV, WiFi throughout our homes, even the flip of a switch in the kitchen to power the lights overhead–all of these are examples of outcomes from a source, in which we don’t see, hear, taste or feel the connection in between.

So, to dismiss the concerns around EMFs and radio frequency emission seems a very questionable action–especially when we realize that we are exposed to a slow-drip of this kind of pollution day in and out.  There have been numerous studies that have begun to connect the dots on seemingly unrelated concerns–from asthma to autism to genetic disorders–and exposure to these fields of heat and electrical frequency from these commonly used devices.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 12.37.15 PM

Cell phones and other personal electronics work in the field of non-ionizing radiation–this is a low-frequency wave form that many have argued is safe because it does not have the immediate, acute impact on cellular DNA as high-frequency, ionizing radiation has (medical X Rays and bone scans fall in this category, and that is why it is recommended one does not partake of these diagnostics too frequently.)  However, the insidious, constant exposure that we have in modern times because of all these nifty tools is something that is just being understood as potentially quite damaging.

**Sigh**  (And boy, do I mean that–I use my phone and laptop DAILY, and often throughout each day–they are each an integral part of the work I do.)

Thankfully, there has been a movement in place to help us find safer ways to use these very functional tools with less damage to our bodies.  I’ve kept my eyes on them for years.  But this year, while attending the Weston A. Price annual convention, I came upon a company that has created what I believe to be the most potent form of protection.

DefenderShield is a company that has gone the distance in terms of protection…their technology has been backed by FCC-certified laboratory testing to provide the ultimate safety available today in using these devices.

Their products have a layering design that uses non-toxic materials to shield against the different types of radiation being emitted.  When used as designed, these layers work in unison to virtually eliminate all exposure to radiation in the wavelength of 0-10 GHz.

While at the conference, I picked up a shield for my Samsung–and I can’t tell you what a relief it is to feel protected when I use this daily part of my life!  And the heat from the phone–what was VERY common as it worked away as a text messaging-computer-phone in my hand, is imperceptible with the case around it.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 12.12.24 PM

I’m buying these shields for my entire family for the holidays…for their laptops, phones and tablets.  The company currently offers designs for both the 5 and 6 models of both iPhone and Samsung (my Samsung is a 4, but I simply attached it to the case with double-sided tape, as the model is little smaller than the later versions.)

Please do a significant movement for your health and the health of your loved ones that use these great tools–make them safer!

 

Phage?? Purposely Ingest a Virus to Destroy a Bacteria? Yes!

Bacteriophage material is in these bottles!

Bacteriophage material is in these bottles!

Unless you’ve grown up in the Soviet Republic of Georgia, the concept of PURPOSEFULLY taking a virus to combat a bacteria might seem downright scary.  However, this type of therapy, known as bacteriophage therapy, is a rather accepted and common practice outside the US…and it’s becoming increasingly more common here in the States!

Here’s how it works, in a nutshell…it is figured that bacteriophage material is the most ubiquitous biological matter in the world.  And what is it?  It’s viral material that is unique in its appetite for bacteria…really, it’s not so much EATING that bacteria as it is USING specifically-targeted bacteria as a means of replicating itself. And there are basically two known cycles through which this occurs–lysogenic and lytic.

In the lysogenic cycle, the viral phage material incorporates itself into the bacterial hosts’ DNA, remaining quietly dormant until there is some weakness in the bacteria, at which time the phage material begins reproducing, creating new phage material as the bacterial cell reproduces.  This type of reproduction isn’t so commonly used in medical therapies, though.  It’s the other cycle that has shown such strength in defeating different strains of bacteria.

In the lytic cycle, the bacteriophage connects itself onto the surface of its targeted bacteria and injects its DNA material into the bacteria’s cell.  As the bacteria fills up with more of the viral material, it bursts (lyses), and many new phage are released into the system, where they attach to new bacterial matter and continue replicating.

Here’s a really neat, short video produced by Kristin Klucevsek, Ph.D. that illustrates all this beautifully:

 

So why am I talking about this?  Because it’s a really amazing therapy that has shown tremendous inroads to tough bacterial presentations, all without the very real concerns of bacterial mutation and subsequent antibiotic resistant strains.  Also, because they are SO specific, phages are like a laser-beam  against specific pathogens, rather than the shotgun approach of antibiotic therapy, which indiscriminately wipes out the bacterial flora, both good and bad.  That is huge!

When bacteriophages were first discovered around the turn of the 20th century, they were rightly recognized as a valuable therapy in the fight against various pathogens, presenting as dysentery and gangrene, and other dreadful maladies as well.  However, with the advent of antibiotic therapies in the 1940’s, interest and study in the role of bacteriophages in the West largely fizzled.

However, with very real concerns around antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria such as MRSA, the functionality and usefulness of bacteriophage therapy is having a resurgence in the West.

Thankfully, while the research and use of this type of therapy was largely non-existent in the US, it has been widely available and studied in other parts of the world, notably in Georgia, Russia.

Professionally, I have been thrilled to have this type of therapy available when challenged with such concerns as E. coli and salmonella.  And bacteriophage therapy is increasingly used in the pursuit of safer food production, either before or after harvest, to reduce potential infection from such pathogens as E. coli, campylobacter, salmonella and listeria.

In this age of concern and respect for our gut health and its role in our overall wellness, as well as dodging the bullets of  lethal antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria, it is great to know that there are other potent therapies that do what we wish them to do, without apparent major collateral damage in the pursuit of clearing a bacterial infection.

Great Sale Information–Discount to NLT Readers on KD Gold Soap!

KD Gold RTU offerings in the Starter Pack

KD Gold RTU offerings in the Starter Pack

As you may have seen in my recent post on KD Gold all-natural super soap, we are VERY excited to have such a versatile, toxin-free and potent product to use to clean everything–from our kids’ faces to our garage floors.

After years of looking at the research and reports of the effects of chemicals in our environment on our health and well-being, I believe with all my heart that any way we can reduce our toxic burden–whether in the foods we eat or the products we clean ourselves and our homes with– is an integral component to our wellness.

However, “Natural’ and “Green” labels often belie the truth of the ingredients–there are many products labeled as such that still contain chemicals none of us would wish to use.  Likewise, many of the natural products may be free of toxins, but their effectiveness is lackluster.  So, when I come across something that is toxin-free and works as well or better than the chemical-laden options on the market, I am in!

So, here’s some more really great news:  The good folks at KD Gold have offered to give a 10% discount to you if you enter NLT10 when prompted during the checkout process!  There is no expiration on this offer and you can use it time and again (on separate orders)–just be sure to enter NLT10 anytime you check out from the KD Gold store.  This is in addition to the other promotion they offer, which is free shipping on any concentrate purchase, from the quart to 5-gallon size.  Simply enter CONCENTRATE when prompted as you check out.  So, if you’re planning to use both codes on the same order, type in NLT10, CONCENTRATE and you’ll receive both!

So, to save on your orders of KD Gold, always enter NLT10 when you check out, and if you’re buying the concentrate, also enter CONCENTRATE  to receive free shipping!

Happy, safe cleaning!

Toxin- and Fragrance-Free, Crazy Effective, All-Purpose Natural Soap

KD Gold Display

In past posts, I’ve written about the importance of being mindful of not only what we put into our bodies, but what we put onto our bodies as well.  According to the website Is It In Us?, over 80,000 chemicals are in use in modern commerce, but only about one quarter of these chemicals has even been tested for safety.

And while many consider keeping pesticides off their food, or organic labeling as a necessity for consumption, what we come into contact with is truly every bit as important in terms of our health.

From the detergent we wash our clothes in, to the dishwashing soap we use, to the products we employ to clean our homes, our bodies, our children’s bodies–all of these choices have an impact on our well-being.  From hormone disrupters like DDT and BPA, to  carcinogens like 1,4 dioxane and formaldehyde, these are common and dangerous ingredients that have long-term effect on our bodies at a cellular level.

I’ve shared my recipes on natural cleaning products, and I love them!  But now, I’d like to add one more ingredient, either as a stand-alone cleaner, or as a component to those great recipes.

Have you been looking for an all-natural soap that is completely free of fragrance, safe for the most chemically-sensitive among us, is powerful enough to clean grease from an auto mechanic’s garage, but gentle enough to bathe a baby in or even brush your teeth with?  Well, then look no further than here!

KD Gold is an incredibly potent, effective, odorless soap derived from a proprietary, bio-based formula of fatty acids, vegetable- and plant-based enzymes and minerals, organic alcohol, coconut oil, folic acid, natural vanilla and deionized water that has been reconstituted using Dr. Emoto’s beneficial method.  Every ingredient in KD Gold  is found on the FDA’s Generally Recognized as Safe list.  Because of this, no warning labels are needed on the KD Gold products.

KD Gold's Concentrate Label

KD Gold’s Concentrate Label

So, what can KD Gold do?  By no means is this an exhaustive list, but here’s a good start:

  • Incredibly effective degreaser, from spills on concrete to grease splatters in the kitchen or on the grill
  • Excellent laundry soap and spot remover
  • All-purpose cleaner for glass, stainless steel, counters, appliances, and auto interiors
  • Body wash, shampoo, baby cleaner…even teeth cleaner!
  • Powerful delousing agent (yes, lice!)  KD Gold is so powerful in this capacity, they have developed a case study of its use in killing lice from both the body and head!
  • Pet shampoo, flea eliminator, and urine stain and odor remover
  • Phenomenal carpet cleaner, both for the entire floor, or for spots
  • Varnish (in a 2:1 ratio of water to KD Gold concentrate) and tarnish remover
  • Vegetable and fruit wash for safe and effective dissolution of waxes and chemicals
  • Wound care and hand sanitizing
  • Poison oak, poison ivy and poison sumac pain relief

The power of KD Gold to do all of the above (and much, much more!) is found in the size and action of its molecules.  Called colloidal micelles, this type of soap’s molecules are so tiny and active that they can penetrate into much larger oil and grease molecules and break them apart into biodegradable components.  This action makes KD Gold an excellent, environmentally-friendly choice in oil spills of any kind, or spills of chemicals that are petroleum-based.

We have used it to clean our kitchen, our bathrooms, our outdoor grill, take the tarnish from silver jewelry, clean the walls in and out of the house, deeply (and easily!) clean tile and grout, wash our skin, clean our laundry and dishes–and I have even used it in lieu of toothpaste, and it works great!  Its utility in our home, on our bodies and on our pets is only as limited as the ways we need to use it at a given time.  It is truly multi-functional and incredibly versatile.  But what  varies in all of these uses is its dilution…different needs have different concentrations, and it can be purchased as a concentrate or in the various ready to use formats (RTU) listed above.

KD Gold is a small, family-owned business that was created out of the personal need for a product that was safe for someone with chemical sensitivity, compromised immunity and hyper-allergenity–but who still wanted an effective cleaning agent.  The company is so certain their customers will love their product that they offer a 30-day return policy on any unused portion of the product–or even an empty bottle–less shipping costs.

Additionally, the company offers different promotions from time to time, so be sure to check back often!

Please let me know if you order KD Gold and what you think of the product…I will love to get your feedback.  And we’ll be posting different ways we use it–I’m really excited to have something that has this much functionality–and safety!
