Scar formation is a natural part of the wound healing process. Scars are formed by fibrous connective tissue assisting would repair in the skin and other body tissues. Scars are formed on the skin, underlying tissue, and internal organs where an injury occurred, an incision was made, some part of the body was cut, or a disease infected and caused damage to the tissue. The damaged tissue is replaced by scar tissue to maintain the normal body processes (Waibel & Rudnick, 2015), but scar tissue is unlike normal tissue and may cause pain and limitations in motion, thus needing medical intervention.

Scar formation on organs or muscles can alter the way the tissue moves. Movement is altered around a scar because the flexibility of the scar tissue is different from that of normal tissue. The scar tissue is weak and less elastic. It is vulnerable to injury.

Smaller forms of scar tissue are called adhesions. Adhesions cause the inability of tissue to glide and slide over one another, resulting in stiffness and reduction in strength and range of motion. The nerves become entrapped in the tissue instead of being able to slide through the muscles, which limits range of motion of the involved limb.

Reduced range of motion can be avoided with a prescription of manual therapy and correct motion exercises to help avoid myofascial adhesions around the affected area. Treatment of scars can be easily performed in chiropractic, massage, or physical therapy clinics. For the best outcomes to improve scar tissue flexibility, intervene as early as one can without disrupting tissue healing. Using kinesiology tape can help lift the skin allow for fluid to move easier to the heart.

Antibiotics; In our modern day to day lives it comes as no surprise that they are some of the most prescribed drugs in the world. They are responsible for saving countless lives yet their vast and frequently indiscriminate use, combined with a deficit of new antibiotics, has led to the current global health threat of antibiotic resistance. Probiotics present a logical and natural solution to reduce the distribution caused by antibiotics and return the gut macrobiotic back to baseline following such treatment.

For example, Vitamin D has emerged as something of a miracle supplement in recent years with hundreds of research studies suggesting that it may be useful in preventing conditions such as osteoporosis, autoimmunity, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and much more. Having a Vitamin D deficiency has even been linked to obesity.

Recent statistics suggest that between 40 to 50% of healthy adults, infants, toddlers, as well as pregnant women are deficient in Vitamin D. Why? Because the active form of Vitamin D increases calcium absorption from food in our digestive tract.

However, recent research has suggested that nearly every cell of our body has receptors for Vitamin D, which includes influencing our immune system, blood pressure regulation, insulin secretion, and cell differentiation. Magnesium supplementation along with Vitamin D supplementation was more effective at correcting a Vitamin D supplementation alone.

Got (Organic) Milk?

All mammals get nutritious milk from their mothers when they’re born. Humans grow up and swap nutrient-rich breast milk for cow’s milk.  As growing children, we are encouraged to drink our milk for the calcium, with the hopes of building strong bones and later preventing osteoporosis. Our life long devotion to milk can be problematic to our health because milk contains bacteria, antibiotics, and pesticides. “A 1988 FDA survey of milk samples from grocery stores in 10 cities found that 73% of the samples contained pesticide residues.” Environmental Contamination and Toxicology, 1991; 47got organic milk?

A high percentage of cows are infected with viruses, bacteria and other harmful toxins, which can make for unhealthy milk. Cows are commonly injected with harmful growth hormones to stimulate milk production, and elevated amounts of these have been associated with cancer in humans. We already eat the meat that comes from these animals, so by drinking their milk, we’re getting a double dose of these potentially harmful toxins.

The protein that milk provides has been shown to inhibit calcium absorption and has actually been shown to be hard to digest. Milk is also mucus producing and a common link to childhood allergies, sinus infections/congestion, skin problems, ear infections, diabetes, worsening arthritis symptoms and heart disease. As a milk substitute, I like organic rice or almond milk.

It’s true- we do need calcium. What are some other ways to get it? Try increasing your intake of high quality calcium-rich foods, like leafy green vegetables (kale, collard greens, broccoli) or add mackerel, sardines, navy beans, hazelnut and sesame seeds to your diet. Get sunshine because it gives you vitamin D, which aids in absorbing calcium. Try decreasing foods that block calcium absorption, like soda.

The bottom line when it comes to milk‒ even if you have to pay more, it’ll be worth it for both you and your family in the long run to go organic. Milk may not be as crucial to our health or strong bones as a balanced diet of good quality, chemical-free food.
