For most people, the first sign of a health problem may be a physical or emotional symptom.
You get headaches, your stomach hurts, you have unusual fatigue, your joints hurt, you are depressed …. our body provides a variety of clues that something is not right.
Many times we simply don’t know what is wrong…. and sometimes traditional medical approaches have a difficult time with a complete and proper assessment. This is where Terry Trinka’s approach, including consults and testing, can really help with the identification of underlying issues.
And, if you already have an idea of your health condition, Terry can provide a deeper understanding of issues that may be connected and provide some insight for their resolution.
There is a lot of buzz around detoxification, but you may be uncertain about the positive impact of getting your body clean or how to do it more effectively. This is where Terry’s approach can really help.
Long-term exposure to toxins such as environmental pollutants, cancer-causing chemicals, preservatives, pesticides, and heavy metals can affect our metabolism, behavior, nervous and immune system, ultimately leading to poor health with many symptoms.
Your exposure to these toxins is unavoidable. Our digestive, hormonal and nervous systems can get overloaded with toxins which can create a variety of illnesses. Toxins are stored in the tissues and cells throughout our body, including our brain.
With a proper program, we can help remove toxins from the body, enhance the immune system, slow premature aging, create mental and help emotional clarity and enhance energy levels.
Let’s get started!
Recovery from any form of alcohol overuse can be greatly enhanced with a personalized program. High-quality nutritional supplements are great, but you still have to talk about food because it’s something that you’re going to do every day for the rest of your life, hopefully.
We talk about how to handle some of the basic things that happen when a person has been drinking for a while like liver health, blood sugar stabilization, and brain function. This discussion can help people make different choices in their life and repair the damage if possible.
One of the things that alcohol does to a person’s body is act like sugar. It’s a refined carbohydrate. So, you’ll see your blood sugar go up and then crash. In addition, excess alcohol consumption acts like a poison to the cells that line your digestive tract and the neurons in your brain. There are preferred nutrients, from the highest quality supplement manufacturers, that can hasten the regeneration of those cells, lessen cravings and help normalize blood sugar imbalances.
As you can see from this brief overview, there are many things we can do to help your body and brain with alcohol recovery.
More than 100 million U.S. adults are now living with diabetes or pre-diabetes, according to a report today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The report finds that more than 10 percent of the U.S. population now has diabetes.
One way to approach diabetes is to use an integrative holistic approach.
This approach focuses on caring for the entire person with an emphasis on reducing inflammation in the body. This approach can be contrasted with conventional medicine, where the goal is to mitigate the disease process, as reported by the American Holistic Health Association.
While insulin and other drugs can play a key role in management; a holistic program will add a personalized, whole-person approach that can include a recommendation for changes in diet, exercise, stress reduction, supplements, and other lifestyle options.
The benefit of this approach is that you address the reasons why blood sugar can be chronically imbalanced.
Asthma, celiac disease, irritable bowel syndrome, allergies, gluten intolerance, lactose intolerance and hundreds of other health issues are related to food sensitivities.
Blood and saliva tests can provide valuable information about your food sensitivities. You will learn how to keep a food diary and a program that avoids not only the foods that you are sensitive to but also cross-reactive foods that can produce the same effect as the ones you are sensitive to.
You will be able to identify high-risk foods and food situations that can be avoided. Our motto for food sensitivities is the same as for many other ailments… Food First, which means we help you identify sensitivities and adjust your diet accordingly.
The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped gland in your neck. It has a dramatic impact on a huge variety of bodily functions. Many gut issues, mood, weight and energy problems, have their roots in a dysfunctional thyroid gland.
According to some studies, more than 30% of women over the age of 35 are likely to have a thyroid problem. Some 30 million Americans have a thyroid disorder and half of them are undiagnosed, according to The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists.
Thyroid disorders range from a harmless swelling in your neck that needs no treatment to thyroid cancer. If you do have a thyroid issue it is critical to figure this out.
The most common problems involve abnormal production of thyroid hormones. It is most common to have too low thyroid hormone production. This is known as hypothyroidism. When you have too much thyroid hormone it creates a condition known as hyperthyroidism.
The vast majority of Thyroid problems are due to an immune response against the thyroid.
Hormones play a significant role in how our body functions and how we feel. It is more than simply the well-known hormones testosterone and estrogen, although those are huge players in how a person feels.
Cortisol, insulin and thyroid hormones, etc. are all good other indicators of what is balanced and what is imbalanced in your body so you can make changes to your lifestyle to correct them. Low energy, brain fog, and low libido are common symptoms of hormonal imbalance.
If your hormone levels are imbalanced and you address them, you have unleashed a powerful force in helping you get and stay healthy.
If chronic inflammation is part of your health condition (which is extremely likely) then it makes sense to figure out what is causing your inflammation.
There are many irritants to your immune system that you come into contact with in daily life. The long-term exposure to these irritants causes immune dysfunction. The immune system dysfunction causes chronic inflammation which damages your body (and causes many problems with our health).
The best way to figure this out is to do lab tests to figure out which substances irritate your immune system. These are very sophisticated tests from extremely reputable companies. Once we figure out the irritants, we address them one by one with recommendations and suggestions to support reducing inflammation.
You can’t address what you don’t know. The application of this knowledge is another strong force in helping you get healthy and stay healthy.
To say that our brain is important is like saying that the sun supports life on Earth. The human brain is one of the most complex and critical organs we have.
