From Dr. Ellsworth’s Desk: The Hormonial (Im)Balancing Act

Dr. Robert Ellsworth NMDHORMONAL IMBALANCE

We now know that our hormones do not decline as we age but that we age because of declining hormones.  When restoring hormones in the human body, it is only logical that human identical or bio-identical products are the only acceptable products. Why use a synthetic product that acts like the real thing when you can use natural bio-identical hormones?

Enjoy Our New Ozone Sauna

IMG_2445We feel the use of a sauna is a very important part of any detoxification program. The sauna increases the eliminative, detoxifying and cleansing capacity of the skin by stimulation of the sweat glands and also promotes healthy skin tone and texture due to increased blood circulation. Using the steam sauna and ozone allows the steam to surround the body and ozone to be introduced through the skin. Humid heat opens the pores, which allows the ozone through the skin to the bloodstream, where it can travel to the fat and lymph tissue. It is very important to cleanse the lymph tissue of toxins and our skin is the largest detox organ of our bodies.  An Ozone/steam sauna is one of the most efficient and best ways to accomplish this. As a side effect for some of us, it helps us to burn 250-600 calories in each session.

Artificially induced hyperthermia (rising body temperature results in the destruction of bacteria and viruses) combined with heavy sweating and a cleansing effect initiated by ozone will result in elimination of toxins accumulated mainly in the lymphatic system relieving the liver from the difficult task of dealing with them. The combined action of moist heat and ozone cleanse the lymphatic system, which carries 90% of the body’s fluids.. The combination of steam and ozone is a natural, effective way to promote a refreshing sense of well-being. We believe that an Ozone/Steam Sauna cabinet represents a pleasant and easy to follow form of body cleansing.

New Studies Cast Doubt on Value of Mammograms

A recent article from NBC.com casts doubt on the value of mammograms for breast cancer detection.

At Five Seasons Health we believe that early detection is important for health and long life. We recommend that you consider breast thermography as a safe and effective alternative to a traditional mammogram.

Total Enzyme

The digestive system is responsible for digesting and absorbing the nutrients you need to maintain health. It is a complicated system and when compromised you can experience a wide array of symptoms such as gas, bloating, indigestion, fluctuating bowl movements, abdominal pain and cramping. Poor digestion over time can lead to other seemingly unrelated symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, impaired circulation, bloating and general malaise. Your overall health is dependent on this system functioning properly because it’s where every cell in your body gets the energy and nutrients it needs to live, repair and reproduce itself.
The food we eat is a complex of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. These huge macromolecules must be broken down into smaller units that can be absorbed into the blood stream and assimilated by the body. Poor digestion can lead to protein linkage that impairs blood flow in the circulatory tract limiting the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the cells.
Digestive enzymes are specialized proteins, each designed to break apart a specific type of molecule in your food. In a healthy digestive system, the enzymes present in raw foods combine with the digestive enzymes from your body to effectively and completely break down the food into particles that your body can use. Unfortunately, cooking and processing can destroy the natural enzymes. This puts the full burden of proper digestion on your body’s enzymes. Since we are all genetically unique with different diets and lifestyles, our capacity to produce our own digestive enzymes varies with each individual. Research has also shown a decreased ability to make adequate digestive enzymes as we age. Supplemental enzymes can support the digestive process in the breakdown of food and the absorption of nutrients.

The following enzymes are included in Total Enzyme formula:

  • Peptidase: breaks down proteins into usable amino acids
  • Papain: breaks down protein and is beneficial in reducing inflammation
  • Amylase: breaks down carbohydrates and starches
  • Maltase: breaks down carbohydrates and some simple sugars.
  • Bromelain: : breaks down protein and is beneficial in reducing inflammation
  • Cellulase: breaks down plant fiber and aid in the digestion of raw vegetables
  • Lipase: works with the gallbladder in the digestion of fats and oils
  • Betain: breaks down proteins in the stomach and aids in mineral absorption
  • Pancreatin: assists the pancreas in the digestion of carbohydrates, proteins and fats

Suggested Use: Take 1 capsule before or during each meal.

These enzymes work synergistically to assist your body in the proper digestion and assimilation of your food for total health and wellness.
