Pesticide Exposure & Lou Gehrig’s Disease in Beverly Hills

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosPesticide Lou Gehrig's Disease.is (ALS), or Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a neurodegenerative disease affecting motor neurons and disabling voluntary control of muscles. 90-95 percent of cases have unknown etiology. Environmental exposures have been suspected to be a potential cause.

By comparing the environmental toxin exposure of 101 ALS patients to 110 comparable healthy control individuals, researchers from the University of Michigan demonstrated that people with persistent exposure to environmental pollutants such as organochlorine pesticides, polychlorinated biphenyls, and brominated flame retardants are at 2-3 times greater odds of having ALS than those who are not exposed.

As animals can accumulate and concentrate these toxins in their bodies with contaminated food and water intake, meat and dairy products can serve as major sources of these toxins.

Dr. Aristotle’s Comment:
We’ve discussed environmental exposures and the crucial need for proper elimination of toxins from the body. The long term effects oPesticide Lou Gehrig's Diseasen our health and ability to heal from disease are now being noticed in the literature. Remember, before starting any detoxification program you need to strengthen the biochemistry of your body.

As you know I highly recommend the Cardio-Ion laboratory tests to help determine what strengths and weaknesses exist in the body. This way you can be proactive in your healing while staying on target with your nutrition.

Holistic Care & Eastern Medicine in Beverly Hills

I’m At A Fork In The Road. What Should I Do?

Many patients suffering from a long term health problem walk the “no” results road but still have a sense of not giving up.

Eventually, some find that path and end up in our Beverly Hills Wellness Center office. Many call it luck, coincidence, or some sort of intuition that guided them in a particular direction. How intuition works is being studied and can be seen in a paper: Intuitive decision making as a gradual process: investigating semantic intuition‐based and priming‐based decisions with fMRI.” Link Here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4834943/

When it comes to our health we may arrive at a serious fork in the road. We are confused and can’t decide which intuitive message is the right one. We feel stuck and can’t move forward!

We may need help connecting with that inner process to make a decision.

In Asian medicine this is a weakness in the Fire element. Supporting this element with Fire Element homeopathy is an effective approach to help balance that mind body connection in these types of situations.
