Heart disease has been called the Silent Killer because it often has no noticeable symptoms. It's more deadly than all forms of cancer combined and it’s not just "an old man’s disease."

 

Since the first National Wear Red Day in 2003, we've made tremendous strides in the fight against heart disease in women. Through research and education on healthy lifestyle changes, we’re proud that:

LOCAL CLINICIAN RECOGNIZED AS a graduate of The Institute for Functional Medicine’s Certification Program

Dr. Scott J. Banks, DC, IFMCP, PC Joins Elite Group of IFM Certified Practitioners

 

 

Federal Way, WA; February 3, 2014 – Of total healthcare costs in the United States, more than 75% is due to chronic conditions.

The key to reversing the rapidly spreading epidemic of chronic disease is to address the underlying causes and solutions for chronic disease, which are primarily driven by the lifelong, daily interaction among an individual’s genetics, environment, and lifestyle choices. Functional medicine not only incorporates the latest in genetic science and systems biology, but it also enables health care practitioners to practice proactive, predictive, personalized medicine while empowering patients to take an active role in their own health.

 

The Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM), the global leader in providing clinical education in functional medicine, is pleased to announce Dr. Scott J. Banks as a member of the first graduating class of certified functional medicine practitioners.

dr scott banks functional medicineEverywhere we go we hear the term "GMOs." Here is a brief explanation:

 

GMOs are organisms that have been created through the gene-splicing techniques of the biotech industry. GMOs are also know as genetically engineered, or GE. This new science became available in the mid-nineties. This science allows DNA from one species to be injected into another species in a laboratory, creating combinations of plant, animal, bacterial and viral genes that do not occur in nature.

 

In the US,  the FDA approved commercial production of GMO's based on studies conducted by the companies that created them and profit from their sale. I call this tobacco-science. Many enlightened people find the lack of rigorous,...

I have had the opportunity of listening to Dr. Houston many times over the last decade. He has helped increased my knowledge in the field of Cardiology. He is a good friend. Dr. Houston states that there is a strong relationship between gluten and metabolic syndrome. This will include vascular problems, endothelial dysfunction, coronary heart disease, etc.

 

The blood vessel has a infinite number of insults, but only three finite responses to the insults. The three finite responses are inflammation, oxidative stress, and vascular autoimmune dysfunction. Idiopathic cardio myopathy= swelling of the heart. This can reverse on a gluten free diet in gluten sensitive people.

 

In my practice for years I have always done the Advanced...

gluten free dr scott banksGluten-free has become a very common phrase lately. Many people may be wondering what it is, why, and what we really need to know, so here it is.

 

Gluten is the protein fraction of most cereals, including wheat, rye, and barley. Celiac disease (CD) is an autoimmune disorder, which affects genetically predisposed individuals upon the ingestion of gluten. Its prevalence has been underestimated, but it is now considered one of the most common genetic disorders. That gluten sensitivity is regarded, as principally a disease of the small bowel is a historical misconception (J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry 2002;72:560–563). Every time the disease is clinically diagnosed in an adult, that person has for decades had disease in a latent or silent stage (N England J Med Oct.23 2003,1673-4).

 

Some important things to know:

brain healthA few nights ago, we held a small lecture on about brain health, which has A LOT to do with overall health. 



For those of you who missed it, we've put together some of the most important points from the night, along with some of the most recommended supplements to kick start your brain health into high gear!



Alzheimer's is a preventable disease of old age for which there is no cure! Alzheimer's isn't all genetics. It's about epigenetics: all the environmental effects expressed on your genetics. British journal of health found that cholinesterase inhibitors used to treat Alzheimer's have been found ineffective. Reduce inflammation. Inflammation causes heart, brain, digestive, and other diseases. Oxidative stress is damage to lipids, proteins, DNA & RNA. This causes the brain to deteriorate. Vitamin C and E are antioxidants that help reverse oxidative stress and reduce prevalence of Alzheimer's....

Suffer From Back Pain?

Chiropractic (chi·ro·prac·tic):  A system of therapy in which disease is considered the result of abnormal function of the nervous system. The method of treatment usually involves manipulation of the spinal column and other body structures.

According to Merriam-Webster, that is the definition of Chiropractic.  But it is so much more; it is a health care profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system and the effects of these disorders on general health

 Functional medicine treats the person (patient) and not the “problem” (disease/issue). In addition, it provides a framework for the practice of medicine that uses all the tools of healing, both conventional and alternative, to address the whole person rather than an isolated set of symptoms.
