Symptoms vs. Cause

What’s your go-to remedy for …

  • Headaches – is it Tylenol or Ibuprofen?
  • Fatigue – maybe coffee or a soda?
  • Low energy – do you opt for the energy drink or chocolate?
  • Heart burn – is your DOC (drug of choice) Nexium or Prilosec?
  • Constipation – do you take Laxatives or fiber?
  • Diarrhea – is it Kaopectate or Imodium that soothes your symptoms?
  • Neck or low back pain – do you take OTC painkillers for muscle aches and pains?

Or maybe you take a natural approach and use herbs or supplements to get relief.

What do you do to feel better?

Temporary Relief vs. Permanent Fix

Whether you use OTCs, prescription drugs, herb, supplements, homeopathics or any other natural remedy to relieve your discomfort, you’re still just treating the symptoms. Addressing the symptoms is not going to eliminate the problem. It’s just going to delay it until the next time, and the next time and the next time. Eventually it may evolve into a bigger, more serious problem.

Have you ever had a doctor tell you we’ll just watch it? Waiting for it to become a disease so they can prescribe a drug when it fits into the “pill for every ill” model.

Instead of looking for what you can do to get rid of your symptoms, have you ever asked yourself …

What is causing this problem?

Why do I have headaches, fatigue, low energy heartburn, ets.?

If you had a splinter in your hand, would you take a pain killer, or would you remove the splinter?

If you burned your hand on the hot stove, would you leave it there and ask what you can take to relieve the pain? Or would you immediately remove you hand from the burner?

Taking a drug to kill your symptoms is like plugging a hole instead of fixing the leak. Eventually it gets to be like mopping the floor when the water is still on and overflowing.

Does it really solve the problem?

Maybe temporarily until the symptoms show up again and you repeat the process.

Symptomatic Relief vs. Correcting the Cause

What if instead of looking for a pill to fix your ills, you asked, what is causing me to feel this way?

Why does it keep happening over and over, every day, every week, every month?

What can I do to stop the vicious cycle and start feeling better?

How can I get rid of the symptoms for good?

I’m glad you asked.

Here’s a way for you to find out what’s causing your symptoms. Click the image and learn how you can get to the root cause of your symptoms and eliminate them for good.

Symptom Chaser vs. Problem Solver

Are you going to be a symptom chaser or problem solver?

If you keep treating your symptoms, it’s like making charges to your credit card without ever paying the bill. Then one day you find out that you have a huge problem that will cost you a lot more than you bargained for.

So now, instead of your doctor saying let’s wait and see, you’ll get a diagnosis and it may be something that you really don’t want.

Will you be proactive and work to find the cause and prevent future illness, or will you go the way of the masses and wait for the big diagnosis?

I invite you to watch this special webinar presentation to find out the real reasons behind what’s going on with your health … and how to finally get relief from these symptoms once and for all!

How to Get Around the High Cost of Organic Food

Do you want to eat healthfully, but find it too expensive to eat organic?

It doesn’t have to be.

It’s true that food prices are going up and organic is getting more costly.

It’s also true that organic is not the same as it was a few years ago.

The conventional food industry has entered the organic food market in order to get their piece of the organic pie. But they are not committed to the organic standards. And every year, they are chiseling away, allowing synthetics and other ingredients that should not be allowed in organic.

In addition, certified organic does not mean pesticide free. It just means that only those pesticides approved for organic use are used on organic crops.

When organic food is out of reach of your budget,what does that leave you?

It leaves conventional and GMO.

Did you know that  conventional crops, even those not genetically modified, are sprayed with Roundup with carcinogenic glyphosate? Even if you avoid the Dirty Dozen and opt for the Clean 15, you’re still getting less nutrient dense food.

So, what can you do to eat better than organic for less than the cost of organic …

… and fresher than what you get at Jimbo’s, Sprouts, Whole Foods or the farmer’s market?

Join us on Friday, May 29 at my office at 6 p.m. to learn about the Tower Garden, a vertical, aeroponic growing system that uses no soil, 90% less water, is non-GMO, waters itself and grows year round.

Don’t let the high cost of organic food keep you from eating healthy food.

15 Pounds and 6 ½ Inches

That’s how much a patient of mine lost on her first five weeks of her Transformations 360® Program.  She’s looking great … glowing, and feeling fantastic with so much more energy.

Since she started T-360®, her co-workers have been so impressed with how great she was looking, they started a “Greatest Loser” program where she works.

She’s in the number 1 spot so far.

Before starting the Transformations 360® Program, she was frustrated because she had been struggling trying to lose weight for YEARS.

She lost nearly seven pounds her first week, then between one and three pounds each week since. This is the average weight loss on this program.

Her weight loss goal when she started was 30 pounds. She is so excited about how she is feeling and how well she is doing, she’s now upgraded her goal to 45 pounds.

So, what is the Transformations 360® Program?

Transformations 360® is about empowering your life for wellness.

The first step is establishing your Wellness Index. You fill out an assessment questionnaire and are evaluated for 15 conditions based upon your symptoms. This gives you a baseline of your un-healthy markers.

Next, you follow a ketogenic, elimination diet … eating real whole foods. This provides you with enhanced energy and an improved mental state.

The eating plan is designed to help you lose abdominal fat, maintain muscle mass and reduce elevated blood sugar. You will take a nutrient dense protein drink which provides the nutrients you need to maintain healthy body functions, lose weight healthfully and eliminates hunger cravings so you feel good while on the program.

Re-evaluation of your Wellness Index helps to pinpoint food allergies and sensitivities, nutritional deficiencies and chronic conditions. It identifies the root cause of your symptoms so you can correct un-healthy markers. Chronic conditions need the attention of a health care practitioner … who can help you improve your health and reverse conditions like pre-diabetes.

What makes this program more effective than other weight loss programs?

On the Transformations 360® Program you …

  • maintain your muscle mass while you lose fat so you retain your body’s calorie-burning engine.
  • learn healthy eating habits that not only help you lose the weight, but also to keep it off.
  • address functional health imbalances so you’re able to lose weight, maintain your weight loss and healthy blood sugar levels.
  • pinpoint food intolerances, address them, and keep the weight off.
  • feel good during weight loss, without hunger, cravings, low energy or mental fatigue, which makes it easy to stick with the program.

How can you benefit?

Take the WICO® Score Test to establish your baseline of health.

After you submit your WICO Test, you will receive an email to set up a consultation, at no charge … a $175 value.

Say No to the Yo-Yo … Weight Loss for Life

Have you ever gone on a diet, lost weight, only to gain it back, and then some?

At some point, did you just throw your hands up in despair and say “what’s the use?”

Do you want to know

  • the real reason why dieting doesn’t work?
  • why you gain more weight with each diet you go on?
  • and then eventually enter the ranks of the diabetics?

Here’s why …

When you diet, you lose muscle mass as you lose weight instead of losing just fat. This reduces your body’s “calorie-burning engine.”

When you go on a diet, lose the weight you want, then go off the diet … if you haven’t learned how to make the correct changes to your unhealthy food habits and if you go back to eating the foods that caused you to gain weight in the first place, you will gain the weight back.

In other words, if you didn’t learn healthy eating habits to help you maintain the weight loss, you’ll gain it back.

If you’re eating foods that are not blood-sugar friendly, i.e. foods that raise your blood sugar, like candy, cookies, pastries, energy bars, sodas, fruit juices and even too much fruit, you’re setting yourself up to not only become a diabetic, but also to gain weight.

When you go on a diet to lose weight and your focus is solely on the weight loss, you miss the reason for the inability to maintain your weight loss. There may be underlying functional health imbalances that prevent you from maintaining a healthy weight and healthy blood sugar over time.

The adverse effects of hidden food sensitivities that may have been diminished or eliminated when you avoided the guilty foods while on your diet come back with a vengeance when you go back to eating them, which in turn brings the weight back.

And if the diet program you’re on allows you to be hungry, have food cravings, low energy or brain fog the likelihood that you will stick with it is greatly decreased.

Does this mean that you should give up, forget about losing weight and maintaining healthy blood sugar levels and just learn to live with it? Wait for the diagnosis and the drugs?

Absolutely not!

There is a way to achieve and maintain healthy weight loss and prevent the onset of diabetes and other chronic diseases.

The first step is a health assessment to get a baseline measure of your state of health. You need to find out if you have any functional health conditions that may be preventing you from losing the weight and keeping it off.

Following a ketogenic elimination diet, with the essential supportive nutrients, will allow you to biochemically set your body to use excess fat for fuel while protecting muscle mass, i.e. preventing you from losing muscle mass as you lose weight, and reducing elevated blood sugar, as well as eliminating hunger, maintaining blood sugar, having high energy and a clear mind.

Most important is to be eating “the right” whole foods your prepare from scratch … no packaged foods, no gimmicks, just real food and specific nutrients designed to support your body in healthy weight loss and healthy blood sugar levels.

Losing weight is not just about weight loss. It’s about improving your health and in the process allowing your body to achieve a normal weight.

Say NO to the Yo-Yo and YES to Weight Loss for Life.

Start now on the road to a healthier you.

Never become a diabetic

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), one out of three Americans are either Type II diabetic or pre-diabetic, and by 2030 one third of Americans will become Type II diabetic.

If you take anyone under the age of 30 out of the equation, these stats become even more alarming as 50% or more adult Americans will most likely have one of these conditions.

The good news is that pre-diabetes is reversible, proven by a government conducted double-blind study.

Unfortunately, our standard of care is waiting for people to become diabetic, at which point medication is offered that for most people will NOT stop the progression or complications of diabetes.

You Can Prevent Diabetes Naturally

  • Learn how to never become a diabetic (that is lifestyle induced).
  • If a diabetic, learn how to stop the progression and complications of diabetes and wean off any medication.
  • Learn how to have correct food habits to maintain weight loss over time.
  • Correct anyone of 15 health conditions that could stop you from succeeding with weight loss over time.
  • Pinpoint nutritional deficiencies that can be corrected before they become chronic and diseased
  • Pinpoint food allergies and sensitivities that can bring back lost weight in the form of water retention or create other health problems.
  • Pinpoint chronic conditions that will take more than lifestyle changes to correct.
  • Feel better than you normally feel with energy and mental alertness while having no hunger or cravings.
  • Eat normal whole foods without the need for meal replacements shakes, bars and count systems and learn how to be in control of your blood sugar.
  • Spend 30-50% less on your food costs as your body is bio-chemically set to use excess belly fat for fuel, without you feeling any hunger or feeling deprived.

Steps You Can Take Now

To ensure you DO NOT become a type II diabetic, I am offering you my WICO® Test at no cost. This is a $75 savings, and will evaluate 15 functional health conditions based on your symptoms. Once you complete the online questionnaire, you will come to our office to have a complimentary consultation with me (a $100 value). If you are not local, we will do a telephone consultation.

At this consultation, I will review your WICO® Test results, and pinpoint which of the 15 functional health conditions show imbalances that maybe at the root of why you are on track to becoming a Type II diabetic, or are having difficulty losing weight or keeping it off.

In the event you are a pre-diabetic, you will be shown simple steps you can take that will empower you to never have to worry about Type II diabetes.

I believe the greatest gift of health I can give my patients is to show them if they are a pre-diabetic, and how to never worry about becoming a Type II diabetic.

To benefit from this health-saving offer (savings of $175), please fill in the form at the top right of this page to receive your complimentary WICO® Access Code to take the online questionnaire.

Your WICO® Access Code will be emailed to you within 24 hours. After I receive your results I will contact you to set up a Free Consultation to find out if the Diabetes Prevention Program is right for you.

This is a time sensitive offer that can only be offered to a limited number of people.

Don’t miss out. Fill in the form now.

Yours in health,

Christine H. Farlow, D.C.

Must Do’s For Your Health

Did you know the reason why people…

  • do not succeed with weight loss or
  • are becoming a Type II Diabetic

has many times to do with imbalances with their functional health?

There are 15 functional health conditions that can determine a healthy functioning body and their imbalances could be a reason for unhealthy lipids, elevated blood pressure and other unhealthy bio-markers.

Functional lab testing is expensive and time consuming. We have the ability to analyze your functional health condition by having you complete an online symptoms questionnaire. By answering about 290 questions, you will not only be able to see which of 15 functional health conditions are imbalanced, but you will also be given your WICO® Wellness Score.

This score like FICO® for credit, will establish your wellness index and is a function of how many of the 15 functional health conditions being analyzed are severe, moderate and mild. We recently were certified to offer this unique assessment and would like to offer it to you at NO COST! This is a $75 saving as a thank you for your trust in our clinic. We will also provide you with a free consultation ($100 savings) on your WICO® Graph Output for a total savings of $175!

The beauty of WICO® and analyzing your functional imbalances is to not only pinpoint why you have not succeeded with your health goals in the past, but to also ensure you are addressing the root cause of your symptoms. The process can determine nutritional deficiencies, chronic conditions and the likelihood of food intolerances.

Please fill in the form at the top right of this page for your complimentary WICO® Access Code to take the online questionnaire. Your WICO® Access Code will be emailed to you within 24 hours.

I want to thank you again for your confidence in working with our practice. I look forward to keeping you well and healthy in 2015. Please have an incredible year.

By the way, if you haven’t been into our office yet, or live too far away to come in, you can still get your WICO® Wellness Score and Consultation if you are a U.S. resident. We work by phone also.

Yours in Health,

Christine H. Farlow, D.C.

Do Genetically Modified Foods Cause Digestive Problems?

The number one symptom that improves (when removing genetically modified foods from the diet) is gastrointestinal problems.”  Learn more

- Jeffrey Smith
The Digestion Sessions

Did you know that sixty-percent of the Unites States population alone is dealing with at least one symptom of digestive dysfunction?

You name it — gas, bloating, heartburn, abdominal pain, candida, constipation, diarrhea — the statistics say that YOU are more than likely experiencing one or more of them, right now at this very moment.

Living with digestive problems has become the new normal. Typically, they begin as minor complaints — a little indigestion here and there, the occasional tummy ache or bout of heartburn.

Sooner or later, what was once a minor annoyance becomes something that can literally take over your life. This usually happens for two reasons — embarrassment and ignorance.

Let me explain.

Let’s be honest, no one goes out of their way to talk about their digestive problems. What happens on the other side of the bathroom door has become the most taboo of topics, a private matter requiring the utmost discretion.

Unfortunately, there is no “bathroom therapist” office to sit in safety and speak freely about your bowel issues. Instead, you keep it to yourself and hope it will all go away with time.

It doesn’t.

And that’s when you find yourself in the doctor’s office, finally revealing every detail of what you’ve been going through for months, maybe years.

At some point during this cathartic act of courage you realize that you’ve used up all 12 minutes of your allotted appointment time and suddenly find yourself in the pharmacy with a prescription for a drug that comes with two pages of side effects.

No exam. No testing. No investigation whatsoever into what may be causing your symptoms.

Just ignorance in the form of a pill.

What now?

THAT is the very question hundreds of millions of people worldwide are asking about their digestive problems.

Today, I’ve come with the answer.

The truth is that “modern day” medicine has fallen as much as 17 years behind the latest research. In other words, almost two decades will pass before your doctor recommends what actually works.

Chances are, your doc is unaware of the growing number of research studies demonstrating these alarming findings:

- The toxicity of persistent constipation may cause common, everyday symptoms like fatigue, attention deficit, and brain fog.

- Autoimmune conditions like Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, rheumatoid arthritis, and multiple sclerosis are almost always rooted in digestive dysfunction.

- The inflammation from gut dysfunction can spread throughout the body, causing inflammation in the brain, joints, and other important organs.

By the way, inflammation in the gut may also shut down your body’s ability to burn fat. Not good.

Most doctors are either unaware of this information or don’t care to know. Meanwhile, people like you are paying the price in unnecessary suffering and medical bills.

This has to stop. Now.

And that’s why our friend Sean Croxton of Underground Wellness — a real life health crusader —  put together a FREE online event called The Digestion Sessions, featuring 25 on-camera expert interviews and gut-healing cooking classes on all things digestion — so you can get the answers you’ve been looking for. Without the 17-year wait.

Here’s a sneak peak…

* Dr. Daniel Kalish reveals the hidden stomach infection that causes heartburn and reflux — 50% of us have it but don’t know it!

* Christa Orecchio outlines a step-by-step program that kicks candida for good.

* Dr. Shawn Soszka discloses how digestive problems can cause depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders.

* Dr. Michael Ruscio details a stepwise approach to solving diarrhea.

* Drs. Jillian Teta and Tom O’Bryan show you how to use food to cut the inflammation and heal your gut.

* Sayer Ji breaks down what the research REALLY says about gluten sensitivity.

Plus, a whole lot more!
