Disease Care versus Real Healing! By Dr. Greg Fors, DC / Board-certified Neurologist

Possibly you have heard your doctor say, “We’re not exactly sure right now, why don't we follow up on this say six months from now and see what develops”. In other words you have not progressed to a nameable disease that can be managed with drugs. Our modern health care approach today is based on a disease care model. Disease is seen as an enemy, separate from the body, that must be labeled and destroyed. The body is seen as a physical object made up of separate parts, each with their own medical specialty requiring special drugs to fight its enemies. Much to the detriment of your health few clinicians see, and work with the body as a whole. In reality the body-mind has no discrete boundaries. Through the communication systems of the body (nervous, immune and endocrine systems) every cell, tissue and organ is intimately interconnected. Because of this the health of one organ affects the health of all other organs. As discussed in previous articles by this author, the health of the digestive tract has a profound influence on the health of distant tissues even our brain. We've also explored how improper diet and lifestyle leads to insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome well before diabetes develops. This insulin resistance turns on inflammation that affects every tissue in your body leading to pain, fatigue, weight gain and eventually cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer's disease Let's look at the typical patient which may seem familiar to you. Most of course don't feel well, and complain of multiple symptoms, typically involving various interconnected tissues and organ systems. Nearly all are on multiple medications. Usually they have pain somewhere in their body, a signal from their nervous system that tissues, e.g. the muscles and joints are not healthy. Many have issues with fatigue and insomnia and at least 75% have some digestive disorder such as gastric reflux, irritable bowel syndrome, or constipation. Nearly 2/3 of these patients are on some medication for depression or anxiety. What our disease care system misses is that these common symptoms of chronic pain and fatigue, digestive problems, depression, insomnia etc. come from the same underlying metabolic problems of systemic inflammation, oxidative stress, insulin resistance, hormonal imbalances and mitochondrial dysfunction. Thsi is caused primarily by how we eat and live, along with our genetics. Many people seem blessed with wonderful genetics and can get along with frequent dietary and lifestyle indiscretions. But for most it eventuallycatches up causing metabolic dysfunction that leads to disabling and chronic symptoms that our disease care system is ill equipped to help. How is this disease care model working out for us? The US now spends $2 trillion per year on health care, more than any other country in the world. This should give us the healthiest population in the world but, in a recent study of the top 13 industrial countries the U.S. rank second from the bottom for the 16 indicators of a healthy population. Worse yet, an article in JAMA by Dr. Barbara Starfield published in 2000 stated that medical intervention was the third leading cause of death in this country. Only heart disease and cancer kills more people. As embarrassing as this is to us as a country it is even worse for you as an individual. Especially if you're one of millions in America who find themselves taking three, or even five prescription medications, plus over-the-counter drugs, yet feeling worse with each passing year. As with other doctors who practice functional medicine, my practice is dedicated to those special individuals who have said enough is enough, and are dedicated to taking the journey to real healing. If you're ready for this journey give our clinic a call and set up time to discuss what real healing means for you at no charge. Or attend an upcoming lecture. Dr. Greg Fors, D.C. is a Board-certified Neurologist (IBCN), certified in Applied Herbal Sciences (NWHSU) and acupuncture. Trained through the Autism Research Institute he is a registered Defeat Autism Now! Doctor. As the clinic director of the Pain and Brain Healing Center in Blaine Minnesota he specializes in a natural biomedical approach to fibromyalgia, fatigue, depression, autism and ADHD. If you have any questions or comments regarding this article you can contact Dr. Fors at 763-862-7100 He is a sought after international lecturer for various post graduate departments and state associations. Dr. Fors is the author of the highly acclaimed book, “Why We Hurt” available through booksellers everywhere

● On July 26, 1775, the U.S. postal system is established by the Second Continental Congress, with Benjamin Franklin as its first postmaster general. Until then there were no post offices in the colonies, so mail was typically left at inns and taverns. ● On July 25, 1832, the first recorded railroad accident in U.S. history occurs when four people are thrown off a vacant car near Quincy, Mass. A cable on a vacant car snapped them off the train and over a 34-foot cliff. ● On July 31, 1916, future racing legend Louise Smith, who will become the first woman inducted into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame, is born in Barnesville, Ga. In her first race, unaware

that a checkered flag meant the finish line, Smith kept going when the race ended until someone threw out a red flag. ● On July 28, 1932, President Hoover orders the U.S. Army under Gen. Douglas MacArthur to evict Bonus Marchers -- a group of World War I veterans seeking cash payments for their veterans’ bonus certificates -- from Washington, D.C. MacArthur’s men set their camps on fire, and the veterans were driven from the city. ● On July 29, 1958, the U.S. Congress passes legislation establishing the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, a civilian agency responsible for coordinating America’s activities in space. NASA was created in response to the Soviet Union’s Oct. 4, 1957 launch of its first satellite, Sputnik I. ● On July 30, 1971, a mid-air collision between a Boeing 727 and a fighter jet in Japan kills 162 people. At 28,000 feet the Boeing suddenly encountered two military jets. One was flown by a student who had

only a few hours of flying experience. Neither jet was equipped with radar. ● On July 27, 1993, Boston Celtics star Reggie Lewis collapses and dies after suffering cardiac arrest while shooting baskets at Brandeis University in Boston. After previous cardiac arrhythmias, doctors had incorrectly assured him that he could continue to play. ● On Aug. 4, 1892, Andrew and Abby Borden are found hacked to death in their Fall River, Mass., home. Daughter Lizzie, later immortalized in a famous rhyme, was arrested and charged with the double homicide. Taken with her Christian persona, the all-male jury acquitted her. Today, the house where the Borden murders occurred is a bed and breakfast. ● On Aug. 2, 1939, Wes Craven, the man responsible for terrorizing millions of moviegoers with his “Nightmare on Elm Street” series, is born in Cleveland. Craven began his directing career with 1972’s “The Last House on the Left,” a violent teen horror film.

Heyerdahl wanted to prove his theory that prehistoric South Americans could have colonized the Polynesian islands by drifting on ocean currents. ● On Aug. 3, 1958, the U.S. nuclear submarine Nautilus accomplishes the first undersea voyage to the geographic North Pole. USS Nautilus, the world’s first nuclear submarine, dived at Point Barrow, Alaska, and traveled nearly 1,000 miles under the Arctic ice cap to reach the top of the world. ● On Aug. 1, 1966, Charles Whitman takes a stockpile of guns and ammunition to the observatory platform atop a 300foot tower at the University of Texas and proceeds to shoot 46 people, killing 14 and wounding 31.

NOW HERE’S A TIP By JoAnn Derson

HELPFUL HOME

� “Rather than using shelf paper in my potsand-pans cabinet, I have lined the shelves with carpet scraps. There is less noise when I am getting a pot out or putting clean pans away.� -- P.O. in New Mexico � Keep a spray bottle of full-strength white vinegar by your laundry area. Use it to spray the underarms of shirts that have deodorant stains on them. � “Our family vacationed at the beach this summer, and we learned a really neat trick to keep sand from getting inside the house so much. We got a small, inflatable baby pool and set it up near the entrance, along with a chair and towel. The kids dipped their feet in the baby pool, rinsed off their legs and then dried off. The pool was less than $5, and it made a

big difference.� -- N.N. via email � After washing and drying thoroughly, wrap an iron skillet in wax paper to store. � When arranging fewer flowers in a large-mouth vase, use clear tape to create a grid across the opening. Then, you can arrange your stems in the holes. It gives some support to the stems, and the arrangement will be evenly spaced and very pleasing. � For new vining plants, use a simple clothespin to guide the vines to a trellis. Be sure to remove it as soon as the plant has attached itself, as it will grow stronger if it has to hold its own weight. � To bring out the natural sweetness of corn on the cob, try sprinkling a little bit of sugar in the pot after the water has come to a boil. � If the scar of a cantaloupe is rough or has a stem attached, the melon was picked too early and won’t ripen as well as one with a smooth scar. Also, check the net pattern on the outside; it should be even and

an overall tan-yellow color, not green or mottled. � You can remove berry stains from your fingers with lemon juice. Got berry juice on your tablecloth? Here’s E.B. of Mississippi’s suggestion: “Pour a generous amount of milk on the spot, let it soak for 15 minutes or more. Then soak in cold water with soap for an hour or more. Wash, rinse and dry.� � Soak raisins in cold water before chopping so that they won’t stick to your knife. � “Use lined-up celery ribs to create a base for your roast. This way, the juices move around more and the roast never sticks to the pan. I serve the celery with the roast, but you don’t have to if you don’t want to.� -- A.T. in Tennessee Send your tips to Now Here’s a Tip, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

MIGHTY MINNESOTANS CURT L. CARLSON (1914-1999)

Starting in 1938 with an idea and a $55 loan, entrepreneur Curtis L. Carlson (1914-1999) founded the Gold Bond Stamp Company in his hometown of Minneapolis. Trading stamps proved to be right for the times, and swept the nation in a wave of dramatic growth during the 1950s and 1960s. Gold Bond and sister company Top Value Stamps helped revolutionize this new way that retail goods were marketed. In the late 1960s and 70s, Gold Bond Stamp Company expanded into the hospitality industry, acquiring dozens of additional businesses including T.G.I. Friday’s and Radisson Hotels, it also changed its name to Carlson Companies. When Curt Carlson made his first of many gifts to the University of Minnesota, his alma mater and first love, it gave him a great deal of satisfaction; ...he had this to say. I gave this money to pay back the State of Minnesota for giving me an almost free education, so I had the necessary tools to go into business... There is no better way to express my deep appreciation to all Minnesotans than to make available a University that helps our graduates and future executives of our industries be competitive with the rest of the world.

No golfer ever swung too slowly. No golfer ever played too fast. A two-foot putt counts the same as a two-foot drive. The odds of hitting a duffed shot increase by the square of the number of people watching. The only thing you can learn from golf books is that you can’t learn anything from golf books, but you have to read an awful lot of golf books to learn it. No matter how badly you are playing, it’s always possible to play worse.

â&#x2122;Ś After the release of Alfred Hitchcockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s iconic film â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Birds,â&#x20AC;? pet stores all over the country saw a sharp decline in the sales of pet birds. â&#x2122;Ś You might be surprised to learn that during the first airing of the original â&#x20AC;&#x153;Star Trekâ&#x20AC;? series, no episode ranked higher than No. 52 in the ratings. â&#x2122;Ś According to the Guinness Book of Records, it was poor Donna Griffiths who suffered the longest sneezing fit ever recorded. On Jan. 13, 1981, the 12-year-old girl started sneezing, and she continued sneezing every day for more than two and a half years. â&#x2122;Ś If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re like the average American, you eat 20 quarts of ice cream every year. â&#x2122;Ś A man named Patrick Hooligan lived in London in the mid-1800s. He was such a notorious troublemaker that his name is still used today to refer to ruffians and hoodlums. â&#x2122;Ś In 1909, in England, one Lord Barbazon took a pig up for a ride in an airplane. Bovines seemingly got short shrift; the first cow didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take to the air until 1930. It was in February of that year that a cow was loaded into an airplane in St. Louis. It was milked during the flight, and the milk was parachuted to earth â&#x2122;Ś Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s common knowledge that Microsoft founder Bill Gates is regularly ranked as one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wealthiest people, but you might not realize that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wealthiest charitable organization, with an endowment of $36.7 billion. â&#x2122;Ś If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re planning a trip to Iowa anytime soon, you might want to schedule a stop in the town of Walcott. There you can visit the Iowa 80 Truckstop, the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest. With a whopping 220 acres, the truck stop is 1.5 times the size of Disneyland. â&#x2122;Ś The longest mountain range on Earth is located underwater -- in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, to be specific. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nearly 25,000 miles long, and the only part of it thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s above water is the nation of Iceland. â&#x2122;Ś If you are an American of a certain age, you almost certainly spent time watching the 1960s sitcom â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Dream of Jeannie.â&#x20AC;? The iconic bottle where the genie lived wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t actually created for the show; the set dressers used a Jim Beam holiday decanter from 1964. ************************ Thought for the Day: â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare.â&#x20AC;? -- Mark Twain
