San Rafael Chiropractor and Thyroid Expert Discusses Thyroid Symptoms

Hot Flashes and night sweats are thyroid symptoms. The thyroid gland regulates body temperature. The adrenal glands use a hormone called aldosterone, a mineral corticoid, that regulates sodium and potassium levels in the blood stream. Sodium and potassium are also very important in order to regulate blood pressure. The renin / angiotensin system is dependent upon aldosterone. Angiotensin I is converted to Angiotensin II with the substance called renin in the distal renal tubules of the kidneys. This process can only take place when aldosterone are present in the right levels in the blood stream. This is the main system responsible for normal healthy blood pressure. Hot flashes and night sweats are a result of both thyroid and adrenal dysfunction.

Relief From Thyroid Symptoms, Cocaine and Sugar!

The renin angiotensin system controls blood pressure through the sodium / potassium pump.  Without aldosterone, this renin angiotensin system that converts angiotensin I to angiotensin II will not work properly.  Remember that much of the absorption of calcium and sodium and potassium in the body does happen in the tubules of the kidneys.  The colon is another important place for mineral absorption that is often overlooked.  Weak adrenal glands will dramatically compromise mineral absorption at every level.  Aldosterone is the main mineral corticoid coming from the adrenal cortex

Dr. Skolnikoff’s Healing Journey – San Rafael, California

One day when I was at the gym lifting weights I tore 90% of my pec major muscle on the right and had to get it surgically repaired.  A few years later I tore the other pectoralis major muscle on the opposite side of my body.  When I began to study Professional Applied Kinesiology I later learned that the pectoralis major muscles are related to the liver.  The Acutane had caused me to have an extremely toxic liver.  Because I was feeling so poorly, I went to the Medical Doctor to have a blood lab done and the blood lab revealed that my thyroid hormone levels for TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) were more than 4 times normal.  I was suffering from hypothyroidism.

Say Goodbye to Migraine Headaches and Medications to treat them with Complementary and Alternative Medicine

If you are having headaches and want to get rid of them then you are not alone. There are about 45 million Americans that suffer from headaches (1). The most important thing when dealing with ANY health concern is to determine the underlying cause of that health concern. There are 3 causes of ALL HEALTH CONCERNS. There are structural, chemical, and emotional causes of all health concerns and headaches would be no exception to this. For example, according to Alan Miller, ND of Bastyr University, heavy metal toxicity is directly associated with headaches (2). This is a chemical cause of headaches.

Mastication and Digestion Discussed by Female Hormone Expert – Applied Kinesiologist

When thinking about digestion, most people think about the balance between good bacteria in the gut and bad bacteria. This is important. It is true, if there is too much of a certain bacteria and too little of certain other bacteria then this is called Dysbiosis. Dysbiosis is an unhealthy environment (chemistry) of the gut. One of the main things that causes dysbiosis is an over burdened and over taxed liver and gallbladder. Poisons and toxins accumulate in the liver and gallbladder and when they do they lead to poor digestion. It is very difficult to digest protein if you are deficient in zinc because you are under a great deal of stress and unable to metabolize stomach acid because you are missing the zinc necessary to do so.

San Rafael Sugar Blues and Depression Relief

The big problem with America is TOO MUCH SUGAR. It is the SWEET DECEPTION of things that taste great. Later in the year (2015) I will be doing a lecture about the BITTER SWEET TRUTH OF SUGAR AND FRUIT and its sweet deception. On the T.V. and the radio and internet and magazines we are constantly being told that fruit is great for you and that you should have your 5 servings of fruits and vegetables every day…… but is this really true? Or, is it just some marketing gimmick that sounds great and allows the American Heart Association to convince everyone that they will be fine and never get heart disease. Well, I can share with you this much: the approach ain’t working. Heart disease is the number one leading cause of death in the United States and has been the leading cause of death for a few years now. If you live in the United States, your chances of getting heart disease are 1 in 2. That is a 50% chance. SUGAR CAUSES HEART DISEASE IN ALL FORMS. This is a documented fact and not my opinion. Sugar causes homocysteine levels to rise. Homocysteine leads to heart disease. Sugar also causes AGEs (Advanced Glycation End products) to go up and this leads to inflammation (increased c-Reactive Protein) and this then leads to heart disease. This is what happens. These chemicals as well as nuts and seeds and excessive spicy foods irritate the small intestine and the small intestine villi and microvilli and then lead to inflammation that negatively affects the heart and other parts of the body. This is new news for Western Medicine but in Traditional Chinese Medicine it has been known about for 100,000 years!!

San Rafael Chiropractor Dr. Ilya Review about The Microbiome

Nothing could be more popular and exciting to healthy food and clinical nutrition advocates these days than the MICROBIOME. As a matter of fact, in San Rafael and other surrounding Marin County cities, the subject of the Microbiome is so popular that it is continually discussed on the radio (KPFA) and in social media and has become a very important part of the practice of Applied Clinical Nutrition in the entire Northern California region. What the microbiome is referring to is the populations of both friendly and unfriendly bacteria in your body – especially your digestive tract. Interestingly, there are more bacteria in your body than there are cells in the body.

San Rafael Chiropractor Dr. Ilya Skolnikoff Discusses Fat-Burning vs. Sugar-Burning

Two major factors push the body into an unhealthy sugar-burning mode of energy production: 1) stress and 2) eating foods that are burned as sugar. Many factors, some obvious and some hidden, create a stress response. Usually diet is the biggest factor. Sugar and starch push your energy metabolism in the direction of sugar-burning, as does protein that is in excess of your daily needs. Healthy omega-3 fatty acids push your energy metabolism in the direction of burning fat, and unhealthy oils block your ability to burn fat.

San Rafael Chiropractor Dr. Ilya Skolnikoff, DC, DIBAK Discusses Exercising to Get Fatter? Part 2: Insulin Revisited

Insulin evolved to help store nutrients for times of need. It sends sugar into cells where it can be burned for energy, it sends magnesium and other nutrients into cells to be stored for future use, and it keeps fat in storage and blocks it from being burned for energy. Insulin evolved in a time when humans had very different life conditions. Our early ancestors survived on whatever food they could find, and they did not typically have food that raised their blood sugar. They often had to go for days or weeks without much food.

San Rafael Chiropractor and Applied Kinesiologist Talks about Allergies, Women’s Health, Cancer, Pot, Bra… etc…

I thought it would be wise to take this time to talk to you about allergies, women’s health, cancer, pot and bras. I thought that it would be challenging for me to discuss all of these things in a single email. But I am always up for the challenge. If you have high blood pressure or neck pain or headaches or get exhausted in the afternoon or after a large meal then there is a strong likelihood you are allergic to something. The New Patient Health History and Physical Examination helps the Chiropractic Kinesiologist to determine what allergies are present and what is causing them. Once the allergies are identified, the offending allergenic substances can be eliminated from the person’s environment temporarily until the allergies are resolved.

Female Hormone Expert in San Rafael Reveals that You Are Exercising to get Fatter.!? Part 1

Are you a fat burner or a sugar burner? The answer to this question has a profound effect on how long you will live, and on how healthy you will be. Our body can burn two types of fuel for energy: fat and sugar. Fat is our most efficient energy source, and under healthy conditions we get most of our energy from fat. Sugar, on the other hand, is the body’s turbo charger: the fuel that we use when we need a sudden burst of energy. Your body is not designed to burn sugar as its primary fuel.

Do You Suffer from Nerve Pain?

If you have nerve pain then you are not alone. In 2010, it was determined that about 13% of Americans suffer from neuropathic pain and 22% of people worldwide suffer from neuropathic pain. Neuropathic pain is defined as pain caused by damage or disease to the body’s sensory (somatosensory) nervous system. It is often associated with dysesthesia or pain from normally non-painful stimuli (allodynia). For example, somebody shaking your hand is not supposed to cause unbearable pain or pain that radiates down the arm and into the shoulder, but if it does then it is termed “dysesthesia”. This may also be described more simply as nerve damage.

Small Intestine

The small intestine is a pink tube-shaped organ lined with muscle. It is about 20 feet long on average (can vary from 15 to 30 feet) and about one inch in diameter. The top is connected to the stomach and the bottom is attached to the large intestine. To move food along, the intestines normally contract about a dozen times a minute. Digestion begins by chewing and breakdown in the stomach, but the majority of further digestion and nutrient absorption occurs in the small intestine where various additional enzymes that break down nutrients are introduced.

Mouth and Stomach

Mouth and Stomach. As food is chewed, it is mixed with saliva which contains the carbohydrate-digesting enzyme ptyalin. The chewed mixture goes down the esophagus into the stomach. With the help of saliva, food is broken down into smaller particles, which increases the surface area for the digestive enzymes to act upon. A lot of a food’s energy and nutrients –as well as its flavors-cannot be released until its cells walls are broken down by chewing

Think, for instance, of one painful memory from early life, one terrible regret that has been hidden. Look at all the years and years of thoughts associated with that single event. If we could surrender the underlying painful feeling, all of those thoughts would disappear instantly and we would forget the event.

Effective holistic health therapies are completely different than the Western Medical model of health care. The Western Medical model of health care (allopathic medicine) does little more than treat symptoms, allow for emergency medical procedures, provide a variety of different surgeries, and to treat chronic diseases with procedures that do not honor the innate wisdom of the body.

There is no such thing as Complimentary or Alternative Medicine (CAM) and there never was.

Yeah. The main reason for the post is not to say that Drugs and surgery do not have their place, because they most definitely do. The thing is that the public is being misled into thinking that they need to be vaccinated, that they have drug deficiencies and that if their Medical Doctor does not think that something is a good idea that then it is not a good idea. Plus, there is the languaging and the disrespect of the results that us so called “holistic health professionals” are getting with our patients / clients.

Schools Receive $400 for every Child Diagnosed with ADHD

Tom De Weese, writing in NewsWithViews.com, marks the moment when ADHD took a quantum leap forward as a government-sponsored “disorder”.

In 1991, fed rules were adopted which granted US schools $400 for each child diagnosed with ADHD. (I’m trying to determine whether this program extends to all or only some US school districts, and whether there is additional state aid involved.)

Also in 1991, the US Dept. of Education issued a formal recognition of ADHD as a debilitating condition and ordered state education departments to screen students and give ADHD cases special services.

Hormones and Hormone Labs

Since I specialize in helping women with hormonal imbalances and people who have difficulty with their thyroid gland. I thought I would take the time to discuss hormones just a bit.

Underlying Cause of Disease – A Healthcare Provider’s Perspective

Over the years I have always found it puzzling that so many people suffer from illness when just a few shifts in their daily lifestyle could move them back toward health. You would think I would not be surprised after all of these years, but since illness affects all of my immediate family members as well as most people I come into contact with of all races, shapes, sizes and sexes; it causes me to think about the matter a great deal.

THE COLD BOLD TRUTH

This was Written a Year ago by Dr. Ilya and Presented at two Separate Triad Of Health 2 Hour Introductions.

The medical industry is so lost that they actually prescribe medication for nutritional deficiencies and they are so confused that they have convinced themselves that people suffer from drug deficiencies rather than nutritional deficiencies.

These are just a few tidbits of information that many people are not aware of.  In the 1920s through the late 1950s the medical establishment used to be excellent at diagnosing what was wrong with a person and then treating them.  However, things have changed a great deal.  Medicine is a big profitable business.  Hospital births that used to take about 8 hours are now done in less than an hour.  Headaches that used to require aspirin or medicine now sometimes require a surgical procedure.

Do You Remember When They Used to Use BODY SCANNERS on Everyone at Airport Security?

The growing outrage over the Transportation Security Administration’s new policy of backscatter scanning of airline passengers and “enhanced pat-downs” brings to mind these wise words from President Ronald Reagan: “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help you.’”

So, what is all the concern really about — will these radiation scanners increase your risk of cancer or other diseases? A group of scientists and professors from the University of California at San Francisco voiced their concern to Obama’s science and technology adviser John Holdren in a well-stated letter back in April.

U.S. District Judge Jeffrey White said the plantings must now be destroyed, in what could be the first forced destruction of a GMO crop in the United States — and could open the door for future rulings to keep Americans safe from potentially dangerous GMOs.
