Health reset, cutting out processed foods

Hey everybody, Doctor Christopher Hood here, and let’s get started on your health reset! The first thing I advise everyone to do is cut out all processed food. Processed foods are manmade in a laboratory. They literally sit in laboratories and design food based on its taste and its shelf life. So they can make money selling you processed food over a long time period, but not once do they talk about its nutritional value or its abilities to increase your life or your health, its all about making it taste good and prolonging its shelf life so they can keep making more money. Anything that comes in a box, so that rice that you can cook up in five minutes, or the mac and cheese dinners. Food in a box in the middle in the grocery store, is the first thing you need to cut out. Any processed food, anything when you read the label that you can’t pronounce it, you shouldn’t put in your body. When you eat chemicals, your body has to process those chemicals and the process of that has to take filtration from your liver. Your liver gets a problem over years of doing it and it will cause damage over time. Cut out processed food. Shop on the outside of the grocery store, where you have the vegetables, where you have the meats. The easiest way to think about it is that if it grows on the planet, it’s good for your health. When I talk about that people say “Oh my gosh, organic food?! It is so expensive. I can’t afford that.” Let’s shift your mindset here, the truth here is if eating healthy food saves you one long term proscription medication or one hospital stay, it literally pays for itself. So, I’m not talking about spending all your hard earn money on organic groceries that you have to buy at some expensive store. I’m saying shift into a mindset where you’re eating real food that grows on the planet, vegetables, proteins, things that are actually increasing vitality. And shift away from food in the box that is processed in a wrapper. Because when you eat that your body doesn’t know what to do with it and its toxic long term. So, cut out processed food and start eating real foo that naturally grows on the planet.

Hopefully you’re getting information that can start moving you in the right direction.

Once again, I’m doctor Christopher Hood and God Bless.

The Thyroid Gland

Hey guys, Doctor Christopher Hood, we are in nutritional month. We already went over the general overview, we talked about brain body connection, and we also talked about the gallbladder. Today we’re going to talk about the thyroid gland. The thyroid gland is overlooked in both men and women, most people are concerned about it only because it affects the gaining of weight, but the thyroid gland, the pituitary gland and the brain together actually control a lot of metabolic function which is important for health. The reason I bring it up because what happens is the thyroid gland in the neck, if you’re a person that deals with thyroid issuers, what we usually see is that your diet isn’t rich in something called Iodine. Now, Iodine is necessary for the production of thyroid hormones T3 and T4. So, what we’ll see in the production, is if you lack Iodine in your diet, your body doesn’t have what it needs to healthy thyroid hormones. Now people think “well I’m eating Iodized salt” Also known as table salt. You can’t extract it there. Its more used as a preservative. You actually need to take an iodine supplement or you should be eating it in food. If you’re a sushi fan, seaweed paper as a lot of Iodine in it, kelp has iodine in it, beats of Iodine in it, cabbage has Iodine in it. So, there’s different thing you can eat that have Iodine in there. We want that in your diet almost everyday. If you’re just not a fan of any of those things, you can take a supplement called Prolamine Iodine. Prolamine Iodine is a protein Iodine so even with an Iodine allergy you should be fine, but always check with your doctor first. But I just wanted to give you some tad bits on what you can do. If you don’t have it in your body constantly, your body can’t make the hormones. Another tip, if you’re getting choline from the shower through your skin, or in the tap water that you’re drinking it will out compete for Iodine. So, even if you’re taking Iodine and you’re experiencing high levels of choline you want be able to utilize it. Lastly as a chiropractor one big problem is where everyone is developing rounded shoulders and a forward head poster, from everyone being on their phones or working on the computer all day. Understand the thyroid gland in right in your neck, so when your neck started to travel forward, it will actually put compressive force against the nerves that are sending the signal from the brain to the thyroid so the thyroid works properly. So, what we do as chiropractors is that we make sure we get your spine to a normal alignment in your neck. So, the brain and thyroid can communicate properly. If you haven’t been to the  chiropractor and you’re having thyroid issues, please, seek out a chiropractor, go take a look, so your body works the way it’s supposed to work.

I hope you enjoyed, I’m doctor Christopher hood. You have an amazing month, and I’ll talk to you again soon.

Nutrition of the Brain

Hey guys, Doctor Christopher Hood here. How many of you guess say, “There is so much information, I don’t know what to do, I don’t know how to apply it.” I’m teaching this stuff and I feel the same way, every time I go on the internet, there’s more information and how it applies. So, we’re going to get into some pacific this month. So, when it comes to nutrition, the first thing we want to address is the nutrition of the brain. Your brain is controlling the function of every other major organ, gland and system of your body and it does that through the spinal cord. Your brain is sending energy, electrical chemical signals through the spinal cords, down to the nerves that go to your heart, your lugs all the tissues! But! How do we nourish that brain, plenty of people come into my office, that are feeling tired, fatigued, depressed and they don’t know why. So, it all starts with is your brain. Your brain is control your functions. Number one thing I tell people what they can do is taking good healthy, omega fats. Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids are essential for brain developments. That’s why grandparents gave us fish oil as children. Because it healthy growth of the neurons of the brain. The brain is mostly made out of fat and protein, essential fats are responsible for making sure your synapses fire off when they’re supposed to, so you’re brain works at a sufficient pace. It also reduces inflammation in the body, lowers cholesterol, SO GOOD FOR YOU. 3000 mg of omega fats a day keeps the doctor away. 3000 mg a day, helps nourish your brain keep it healthy, keep it thriving. Number two thing I see people doing, which is incorrect is that people are using artificial sweeteners. The pink packet, the blue packet, the yellow packet, they all have neurological consequences. So much in fact that they’re doing research on multiple sclerosis and parkinson’s disorders along with artificial sweeteners. So, you got to cut out using artificial sweeteners. Pink, blue, yellow, oh my gosh, they’ll have purple one day, I don’t know. They’re bad for you, stop it, it is a neurotoxin get them out of your diet. Instead, what do you want to do? Stevia, stevia is a natural plant, it’s a ground up plant root. Its ultra sweet though, if you’re going to use it. So just a little tinsy bit, just a little bit goes a long way. You can use xylitol which is an alcohol based sugar, doesn’t affect your brain or your pancreas, if you’re worried about diabetes. You can also just use natural sugars, honey, raw sugars, dark molasses. No artificial sugars, instead natural sugars or stevia. The third thing we want to talk about is a nutritional supplement they just came out with. I’ve just been experimenting this within the past year, it’s called EHT. EHT itself has been show to increase the synapses in your brain so you’re brain functions better. So, it’s a newer product and now you’ve heard of it.

I hope these things are beneficial to you all, I’m doctor Christopher hood, it’s all good in the hood. God bless.

We’re going to talk about the gall bladder, digestion. A lot of people don’t realize that the second largest part of your nervous system, after the brain and spinal cord is the digestion system. So, you have a whole second part of a nervous system in your stomach, your digestive system.

So aside from the general things, vegetables the omega fats, drinking plenty of water, eating lean proteins. All the things you hear that we have covered in the past, this month we’re going to get very very pacific. With thyroid function, gall bladder function, healthy brain and nervous system functions.
