Functional gastrointestinal disorders such as dyspepsia, GERD, chronic constipation irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) are the most common GI problems in the general population with about 1 in 4 people in the U.S. having their activities limited because of them. These conditions also account for nearly half of the GI problems seen by doctors and are primarily caused by diet and our inability to properly handle the stress in our lives. In today’s modern society chronic stress attacks us in many ways. Your body/mind can become chronically stressed due to work, relationships, finances, poor nutrition, inadequate sleep, inadequate exercise, chemical or heavy metal toxicity, a chronic fungus or parasite problem, chronic pain and disease, or any combination of the above. As discussed in a previous article, under conditions of chronic stress the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system become imbalanced leading to symptoms of tension, anxiety, depression, insomnia, fatigue, hypertension, and functional gastrointestinal disorders. Under stress your sympathetic nervous systems (SNS) primary goal is your survival, so it elicits a ‘fight for your life or run for your life’ stress response. This response is triggered by any perceived physical or emotional threat. Unfortunately, in modern life we cannot run away from a traffic jam or punch out our boss. No matter what triggers a stress response it leads to the same physiological response. When a response is triggered short term it leads to survival, but when we have chronic stress, over time it leads to gastrointestinal damage and chronic disease. With chronic stress your parasympathetic nervous system, (the rest and repair system that is in charge of digestion) is turned down, and your sympathetic system, (your fight or flight system), is turned up. This condition diverts blood away from the GI tract and thus the body has a very hard time digesting food and maintaining the gastrointestinal lining. It makes perfect sense, why would your body’s systems worry about digestion and repair when you’re running from a bear, likewise, you don’t paint your house when it’s on fire. Additionally, this chronic stress response leads to poor absorption of nutrients, improper GI motility and a very unhappy stomach and intestines, in other words dyspepsia, GERD, chronic constipation, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Sound Familiar? Dyspepsia, gastritis and ulcers of the upper G.I. have been linked to stress for a long time. Gastritis and ulcers are now known to be caused by an interaction between stress and H. Pylori bacteria. The actual mechanism is poorly understood but let me try to explain. It is known that stress reduces blood flow to the stomach causing a reduction in stomach secretions like Hydrochloric acid (HCL) necessary for digestion, and the bicarbonate mucin the coating that protects the stomach wall from being digested. H. Pylori has also been shown to reduce this important stomach mucin production. When stress lets up and digestion starts up again, more hydrochloric acid is secreted; the reduced stomach mucin coating becomes overwhelmed by the sudden increase in hydrochloric acid, allowing injury to the stomach wall. This modern life altering nightmare of functional gastrointestinal disorders can be healed, naturally, once and for all and without dangerous drugs. First and foremost, dietary changes must be taken to remove any offending agents that may be damaging your G.I. tract such as junk food and food allergies. Then proper supplemented nutrients must be utilized to help repair the gastrointestinal tract. Laboratory testing such as a Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis should be done and can be extremely helpful in identifying what nutritional support is necessary. After instituting proper nutritional support, it is vital that patients are properly trained in how to handle their stress. These exceptional healing modalities will be discussed and demonstrated at my upcoming seminars on Stress and Gastrointestinal Problems. I will also discuss how you can conquer these baffling and disabling health problems. Want to know more, attend one of them. THEY ARE FREE and will be held Wednesday August 1st and Monday August 13th 7:00 to 8:00 PM at the Pain and Brain Healing Center.

BRAIN-Y FACTS (continued)

• Information is processed by your brain at speeds up to 268 miles per hour (120 meters per second). There are more electrical impulses generated in a single day by the brain than by all the world’s telephones. The brain’s energy is sufficient to illuminate a 25-watt light bulb. • The two hemispheres of the brain are bridged by the corpus callosum, tissue that enables the two parts to communicate. This part of the brain is 11 percent larger in those people who are ambidextrous — able to write with both hands. • The cerebellum, located at the base of the skull, coordinates muscle movements and balance. Impairment in this area results in the loss of ability to walk or reach out and grab something. • Your brain uses 20 percent of all the blood circulating throughout your body. It flows through the 100,000 miles of blood vessels in the brain. All it takes is eight to 10 seconds of lack of blood to the brain for you to lose consciousness. • The brain also uses 20 percent of all the oxygen we breathe. It can live for four to six minutes without oxygen before damage begins to occur. Lack of oxygen

Page 2

for five to 10 minutes will result in permanent damage. • The horseshoe-shaped hippocampus is crucial in the process of transferring short-term memory into long-term memory. It’s responsible for forming, organizing and sorting memories. • The brain begins to shrink in mass by about 0.25 percent a year after age 30. By age 80, as much as 20 percent of the nerve connections in the hippocampus may have been lost. Only 30 percent of 80-year-old brains perform as well as those of young adults. • Wernicke’s Area and Broca’s Area are both important in the area of language. While Wernicke’s is responsible for comprehension of speech, Broca’s is involved in the production of speech. If Wernicke’s Area is damaged, a person loses the ability to understand language. He or she can speak clearly, but the combination of words makes no sense. Those with an impaired Broca’s Area understand language, but can’t properly form the words to produce speech. • If you’re having trouble focusing on a task and can’t complete a sequence of movements or solve a problem, you may have an impairment of the frontal lobe of the cerebral cortex. This area can also produce mood changes, changes in personality and social behavior, and an

inability to interact with others. • Talk about using your brain to its full potential! Ben Pridmore is a world champion memorizer who memorized 96 historical events in just five minutes. It took this accountant just over 26 seconds to memorize the order of a shuffled deck of cards. His trick is to create associations between the items he is memorizing. • Ever wonder why you can’t tickle yourself? It’s because your brain is able to distinguish between unexpected touch and your own touch. • Research confirms that brain waves are more active when you are dreaming than when you are awake. If you’re average, you’ll have between four and seven dreams a night over the course of one to two hours. • Think about it! The average brain does just that — It produces about 70,000 thoughts on a normal day. • Certain scents can trigger memories, for example, the smell of roses might bring a family member’s funeral into vivid focus. This is because the olfactory nerve, the one that registers smells, is very close to the amygdala, that part of the brain connected to emotions and their memories, and also to the hippocampus, an area associated with memory. If these areas are damaged, the ability to identify certain scents can be affected.

• Want to increase your brain power? Reading aloud promotes brain development, as do music lessons, which boost the brain’s organizational ability. Children who learn two languages by the age of five will develop a denser gray matter. Those who grow up in a stimulating environment can have up to a 25-percent greater ability to learn. • Do all you can to keep your brain healthy! Avoid stress, which has been shown to affect brain structure and function. Studies show that artificial flavorings and preservatives also have a negative effect on IQ. And a seven-year study reported that those who eat seafood at least once a week have a 30-percent lower occurrence of dementia. • The third leading cause of death in America is by stroke. This occurs when blood supply to a part of the brain is disturbed, the result of a blockage, such as a clot, or by a lack of blood flow, such as a burst blood vessel or hemorrhage. The function of the affected area is severely affected, including inability to move limbs, understand speech or see. • An elephant’s brain may be larger than a human brain, but its percentage of total body weight is much smaller. The human brain is about 2 percent of total body weight, but the elephant’s is just 0.15 percent.

■ Want beachy highlights? Do them the old-fashioned way. Get lemon or lime juice, splash it on your hands and run your hands over your hair. If you’re out in the sun, those areas will lighten. ■ Line your vegetable bin with clean newspaper to keep moisture down. ■ If you want to cool your canned drinks quickly, add water to the cooler with a lot of ice, submerge all drinks below the ice line, and wait about 20 minutes. Without the water, it takes much longer. The water extends the surface contact of the ice. ■ If you run out of bleach, add four tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide to a small load of whites. ■ “Be certain to use only distilled water in your iron.

DYSLEXIA Dyslexia afflicts both young and old, regardless of intelligence. Tidbits relays some information about the most common learning disability in children as well as facts about some familiar folks who have risen above its effects. • Dyslexia is caused by a deficiency in the brain’s ability to translate images from eyes or ears into understandable language. It’s not the result of vision or hearing problems, neither is it a sign of mental retardation. In fact, highly intelligent and creative people are affected. It’s estimated that over 40 million Americans have dyslexia. Some researchers believe that as much as 17 percent of school-aged children have the disability. • “Primary dyslexia” is a dysfunction of the left side of the brain and is a hereditary disorder that causes individuals to struggle with reading, spelling and writing into the adult years. With “visual dyslexia,” there is difficulty with number and letter reversals such as transposing letters or words, reading “tab” for “bat,” and confusing a “d” with a “b.” “Auditory dyslexia” results in trouble with the sounds of letters. A child may not remember or understand what he has heard, sometimes missing parts of words or sentences. He also may have a problem finding words to express his thoughts. • Symptoms of dyslexia in a child include late talking, difficulty rhyming, inability to comprehend rapid instructions or remember sequences, trouble understanding what he hears, and seeing words or letters in reverse. He may not be able to follow more than one command at a time. The sooner dyslexia is diagnosed, the better the results. Teens and adults might experience difficulty with time management, reading aloud, learning a foreign language, memorization and

understanding jokes. • Although dyslexics have struggles with language, they are frequently gifted in other areas, such as mathematics, science or the arts. Although Albert Einstein couldn’t memorize simple lists, including the order of the months of the year, he could easily solve complicated mathematical equations and formulas. Brilliant inventor Thomas Edison patented approximately 1,200 items during his lifetime. Edison spent just three months in public school, before his mother chose to deal with his learning disability by homeschooling him. • Many dyslexics turned their attention to athletics for success. Texas Rangers pitcher Nolan Ryan, boxing champ Mohammed Ali, decathlete Bruce Jenner and Olympic diver Greg Louganis have all triumphed over their disability. • When painter Pablo Picasso flunked out of school due to reading difficulties, his art professor father spurred him to develop his artistic abilities, a gift that was evident at a very young age. It’s also believed that Leonardo da Vinci was dyslexic, evidenced by his notes, written right-to-left, a trait exhibited by many left-handed dyslexics. • In the entertainment world, actors Tom Cruise, Patrick Dempsey and Orlando Bloom have all battled the effects of dyslexia. Bloom states, “You have all the information you need, but find it harder to process… It’s a lack of access.” Jay Leno was advised to drop out of high school but proved his advisors wrong when he achieved a bachelor’s degree in speech therapy. • Although dyslexia makes language comprehension and writing extremely challenging, that didn’t stop Fannie Flagg from pursuing a writing career. She became a successful novelist and screenplay writer, nominated for an Academy Award for the script of her novel “Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café,” a 1991 movie blockbuster.

FAMOUS LANDMARKS OF THE WORLD: MISSISSIPPI RIVER Whether it is called the “Mighty Mississippi,” “Old Man River” or “Father of Waters,” the Mississippi River is of great importance in North America. The river travels 2,350 miles (3781 km) from Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico. • While the Mississippi is not the longest river in North America (it is No. 2), it has the largest drainage basin or watershed. According to the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency, a watershed is “an area of land where all of the water that is under it or drains off of it goes into the same place.” • The drainage basin covers 1,837,000 square miles (4,757,830 km²), stretching from the Allegheny Mountains in the East to the Rocky Mountains in the West. The water from all or part of 31 states and two Canadian provinces drains into the Mississippi River on its way to the Gulf of Mexico. • The source of the Mississippi is Lake Itasca in northern Minnesota where, from this lake, the river begins as a small stream less than three feet (.914 m) deep. • As rainwater and melted snow feed into the stream along the massive watershed, the river widens and deepens along its path to the Gulf. Many rivers and streams empty into the Mississippi as it flows southward, with the largest being the Missouri and the Ohio rivers. The Missouri, the longest river in the United States, enters the Mississippi at St. Louis, Missouri, with its water coming from the west. The Ohio enters the Mississippi at Cairo, Illinois, flowing from the east. • The deepest part of the river is in the New Orleans area where the depths reach 200 feet (61 m). • The Mississippi River touches

or forms the borders of ten states. From north to south they are: Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi and Louisiana. • The Mississippi impacts the entire United States but especially the states along its path. The river and its tributaries provide drinking water for over 18 million people. • Many National Park Service sites are present along the river, reflecting the its importance in the growth and history of the United States. The Jefferson National Expansion Monument (the St. Louis Arch) and Vicksburg National Military Park are two popular stops. • The Mississippi National River and Recreation Area, established in 1988, includes 72 miles (116 km) along the river in Minnesota from Dayton/Ramsey south to Hastings. Included in this area are several interesting sites, including St. Anthony Falls, the river’s only true waterfall. • The National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium, located in Dubuque, Iowa, is an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution and another great place to learn about the river. • Another park, opened in 1982, that honors the great river is Mud Island River Park in Memphis, Tennessee. The park is not actually on an island but a peninsula that has the Mississippi River on the west and the Wolf River harbor on the east. The park has a riverwalk, monorail, adventure center, pedal boats and more to keep visitors busy. An amphitheater, museum and a hydraulic scale model showing the lower Mississippi River from Cairo, Illinois, to New Orleans also enhance the educational and recreational opportunities at the park.

A Doctor was addressing a large audience in Tampa. "The material we put into our stomachs is enough to have killed most of us sitting here, years ago. Red meat is awful. Soft drinks corrode your stomach lining. Many foods are loaded with MSG. High fat diets can be disastrous, and none of us realizes the long-term harm caused by the germs in our drinking water. However, there is one thing that is the most dangerous of all, and we all have eaten, or will eat it. Can anyone here tell me what food it is that causes the most grief and suffering for years after eating it?" After several seconds of quiet, a 75-year-old man in the front row raised his hand, and softly said, "Wedding Cake".

“Where we have strong emotions, we’re liable to fool ourselves.” -- Carl Sagan

****************** Thoughts for the Day: “A person who trusts no one can’t be trusted.” -- Jerome Blattner

● You may not have learned about it in school, but during the summer and early autumn of 1859, the United States and the British became involved in a conflict known as The Pig War. In June of that year, a pig on American soil was shot by a British infantryman in Canada. In response to the provocation, the American militia camped out on the border for four months, until the British finally apologized. No lives were lost (other than the pig’s).

● If you spent some part of the 1980s trying to puzzle out a solution to a Rubik’s Cube, you may be surprised to learn that the world record, held by Frenchman Edouard Chambon, is just 9.18 seconds. And it was set in 2008.

● If you’ve seen the movie “The Wizard of Oz,” you might remember that in the Emerald City, the horses were a variety of bright colors. No special effects there -- the set designers simply rubbed the animals with Jell-O powder to achieve the bright hues. Those scenes had to be shot very quickly, though, since the horses had a tendency to lick off their colors.

● The acre as a unit of measurement has been with us for quite some time. Originally, an acre was considered to be the amount of land that could be tilled in a single day by one man behind one ox.

● The world’s single largest consumer of fossil fuels is the United States military.

● If you make a trip to Venice to see the famous canals, keep an eye out for any gondola not painted black. If you see one, you can be sure that it belongs to a high official in the government; they are the only ones permitted by law to have gondolas in any other color.

● You’ve probably heard or even used the term “fly off the handle” to describe someone losing their temper. You probably don’t realize, though, that the handle referred to was originally an axe handle. Sometimes the blade of such a tool would be improperly fastened to the handle, and would therefore be sent flying when the axe was being used.

It’s amazing to ponder that a small threepound organ controls a person’s entire body! Take some time to consider these facts about the human brain, brought to you this week by Tidbits. • There are about 100 billion neurons, or nerve cells, in the brain, which gather and transmit signals. That’s about the same number of stars there are in our galaxy! It’s these nerve cells that compose what is often referred to as “gray matter.” About 100 trillion connections exist among those cells, and not one neuron touches another one. These connections are known as synapses, and they allow the information to flow from one neuron to another. Each nerve cell can have up to 40,000 synapses. • Changes in the synapses are associated with learning and retention of information. Each time you form a memory of some type, a new connection is created. When synapses deteriorate, memory loss and changes in brain function often occur. Studies indicate that people who perform mentally stimulating tasks are less likely to develop dementia. Researchers have determined that stress interferes with transmission, and nerve cells actually shrink from the effects of stress. Deterioration has also been linked to drug use and excessive alcohol consumption, as well as the chemicals in certain pesticides.
