Use the lessons learned from the Deadly Spanish Flu of 1918 to Boost your IMMUNE System Today!

Did the Spanish Flu of 1918 Save Chiropractic? Read on!

Use the lessons learned to Boost your Immune System today!

Updated Oct. 17th 2014 by Dr. Noah De Koyer

Every once in a while there is a perceived or real public health threat that is used not to empower people to strive for a healthier lifestyle but to create a tremendous amount of fear and control.  The most recent example of this is Ebola on US soil and Enterovirus d68.

Lets take a brief look at the Spanish Flu Pandemic of 1918.  This pandemic claimed somewhere between 20-100 million lives, a huge mind blowing number. An interesting little known fact is that this pandemic may have saved Chiropractic as a profession and in fact saved several thousand American Lives.

Statistics show that in Iowa 1 out of 15 people under traditional medical care lost their lives, while the rate of lost lives of those under Chiropractic care and other manual therapies was 1 out of every 789 people.  Please read that again.

Here is more stats; “In Davenport Iowa 50 medical doctors treated 4,953 cases, with 274 deaths.  In the same city, 150 Chiropractors including students and faculty of the Palmer School of Chiropractic treated 1,635 cases with only one death.

“National figures show that 1,142 Chiropractors treated 46,394 patients for influenza during 1918, with a loss of 54 patients – one out of every 886.”

I follow the information provided by Dr. Joe Mercola on nearly all health issues and topics.  To summarize his thoughts on how to protect yourself from the flu

1. Avoid Sugar   2. Get Enought Rest.   3.  Eat Garlic regularly and frequently

4. Exercise   5. Reduce your stress levels   6.  Wash your hands regularly

7. Maximize your Vit. D Levels 8. Probiotics / consume fermented foods

Along with Dr. Joe Mercola’s recommendations I want to add subluxation based – wellness – Chiropractic.

By reading the information provided regarding the outstanding results Chiropractors had with helping and keeping people alive during the Spanish Flu Outbreak of 1918 you get a sense of how powerful the power of Chiropractic is.

How is it that for one person a Chiropractic adjustment could mean mo more back pain, another no more headaches, another better more restful sleep, and yet another a more comfortable easy pregnancy?

The answer is that Chiropractic maximizes the way your body functions by maximizing the function of your nervous system.  Your nervous system controls and coordinates all systems of your body.  Chiropractic is the only profession that specializes in maintaining the integrity of your spine and nervous system.  A Chiropractic adjustment for a new born, toddler, young athlete, mature adult, and/or senior is the single most important health gift you can give. Please pass this information on.

Yours in Chiropractic, Wellness, and Longevity;

Dr. Noah

We are taking the show on the road……. Paleo Presentation at Crossfit Bayonne / Testimonial!

October 8, 2013

What's Paleo All About?

 

October 17th – 8:00PM – Crossfit Bayonne – 432 Broadway Bayonne

Check out this new Paleo Testimonial I just got today

My name is *****, I’m 38 and I’m three months in to my paleo lifestyle. In a very short amount of time I have become very passionate about this program and have seen so many wonderful effects of the discipline.

My fiancé and I moved to ****, ** from *** in March of 2012. Over the course of our first year here, I trained for and ran 6 half marathons. I biked, hiked, and walked regularly. I also gained 15 pounds and can’t remember a time when I felt physically worse.  I was exhausted, lethargic, bloated, not sleeping well (the list goes on). Things just weren’t adding up. I tried everything I could think of, nothing worked. And maybe the worst part, for the 1st time in my life exercise was not enjoyable because I felt weighed down and largely unmotivated. I was pretty sure it was due to my diet (which I didn’t think was that bad).

Then came Paleo. In 3 months I’ve lost 15 pounds (10 in the first 30 days) without even trying. I’m sleeping thru the night for the first time in about 6 years, my workouts are amazing and efficient, my cravings for sweets (which were severe) are all but gone and I feel better than I can ever remember. My body is also more lean and fit. I had no idea how poorly I was eating and how much processed junk I was putting in my system. I was uneducated around what was actually good for me as I subscribed to the low fat/low cal way of eating and because of that, was pumping my body full of processed junk. It was a huge departure from what I was used to. But the fact is it worked. Perhaps the most amazing part of my experience is I’ve gone off the Lexapro I’ve been on for the past 2 years to treat anxiety. The benefits of this have not been just physical, as I find myself feeling more confident and clear headed. It’s a difficult thing to articulate but I feel in control and sure of what I’m doing. That has far exceeded my expectations around this program. Put simply, I feel good. Really good.

I would highly recommend reading as much as you can find on the subject. It’s satisfying and with the right material is actually fun. The recipes are endless and I learned a whole new way of cooking. One that is far easier than I’m use to. I look at food completely different and am eating far less and going much further on what I put into my system. Don’t get me wrong, there are times when I’ll cheat but I do my best to stick with it most of the time because the results are impossible to dispute. So much so, that I don’t see myself going off this anytime soon. If ever.

One very important detail for me to note is none of this was possible without the guidance and support from Dr. Noah. He recommends an amazing variety of books and subject matter that made this easy and enjoyable. Big shout out to him. Anyone who is thinking about going Paleo, DO IT!! It’s one of best decisions I’ve made for my health. You will not be sorry!!

Chiropractic a $2,750,000,000 Healthcare Savings! – Take this Obamacare

June 19, 2013

Chiropractic a $2,750,000,000 Healthcare Savings!

Thanks to the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress and a recent half page article in the Wall Street Journal this incredible Healthcare Savings has been brought to light!

Here is a summary:

Spinal Adjustments were proven to be just as effective as microdiskectomy (surgery) for patients experiencing sciatica secondary to lumbar disk herniation!

More than 200,000 microdiskectomies are performed annually in the US, at a direct cost of $5 billion, or $250,000 per procedure.  If cost is assumed at $100 per Chiropractic visit, there is a direct, total savings of $22,900 per adjustment patient. System wide, this could save $2.75 billion dollars annually.

To look more closely at these studies please visit: www.foundation4chiroeducation.com

These potential savings only touch the tip of what is possible with regular consistent specific Chiropractic Care!

I caution you to not only look at Chiropractic as a “treatment” for low back pain; this just happens to be an easy way to look at the enormous savings possible.

Chiropractic addresses what is right in you, the inborn innate intelligence that governs all aspects of you, including your HEALTH!

When the tension is removed from your Nervous System and Spinal Column by a specific Chiropractic Adjustment your brain communicates properly with all the cells in your body and proper function returns.  Proper function means different things for different people; no headaches, increased energy, better sleep, being able to lift your grandchild, increased athletic performance, etc….

Comments and Questions are welcome!

Paleo Pack – 30 Day Supplement Program

June 17, 2013

We all need nutritional support on some level.  Depending on your genetics, how well your digestive system works, and the quality of your food choices will determine what kinds of supplements are best for you.  It is our belief that if you are eating a Paleo Template Diet with appropriate sun exposure your need for these products should be minimal. Especially if you are consuming organ meats, bone broth, and a wide compliment of fresh vegetables.   However, there are a few supplements that we feel are necessary even in the best of diets and this is why we designed the Paleo Pack.

paleo pack

So you may be wondering what is in the Paleo Pack. Each packet includes 6 capsules and 2 softgels.  2 capsules (2,000 ius) of Vit. D3, 2 capsules (300 mg) of Magnesium bisglycinate chelate, 2 softgels (2,000 mg) of Marine Fish Oil Concentrate including 10 ius of Vit. E, and 2 capsules of a Probiotic Blend supplying 6 billion cfus of beneficial bacteria.

paleo pack 2

Why Vit. D3 – first and foremost many people are deficient – Vit. D3 has roles in calcium metabolism, bone health, and many other physiologic processes – Vit. D receptors are found in the colon, prostate, breast, ovary, and  many other tissues, it is anti-inflammatory, boosts immune function, and up regulates many many genes.

Why Magnesium Chelate – it is a cofactor in more than 300 enzymes, extremely important for cardiac function, energy metabolism, neurochemical transmission, and bone formation.  The chelate form is absorbed and utilized much easier than other forms such as carbonate or sulfate.  Other than cacao and a few other foods magnesium is difficult to get from food alone.

Why Marine Fish Oil – high potency DHA and EPA will  help your body reduce inflammation and to feed your brain and nervous system with the fats it needs to function at high levels.  Omega 3s support many physiological processes related to immune function, lipoprotein metabolism, brain function, and mood regulation. A small amount of natural Vit. E is added to  maintain freshness and retard lipid peroxidation.

Why Probioitics – 6 billion plus cfus of bifidobacter and lactobacillus to help reestablish your healthy balance beneficial bacteria, boost your immune system, and improve your gut health and digestion. Microencapsulation is used to help protect the microorganisms from destruction by stomach acid to ensure there viability and improve shelf life.

 The cost of the 30 Day Paleo Pack is $45.

Just some recent testimonials (names deleted) I received that I had to share………….

June 14, 2013

1. Morbidly obese, suffering from arthritis with further concerns regarding cancer and diabetes and without a plan or direction regarding supplementation and healthier eating…..NO MORE!  Dr. Noah De Koyer provides chiropractic adjustments to deal with my subluxations (misaligned spine), structured and informative FREE lectures ( with subjects from ADD/ADHD,   arthritis, fermentation, organic foods, recipes, smoothies,  super foods,  supplements, to wildly held myths regarding health) & the literature and sites for further follow-up; arranges super outings for walks &  visits to cheese, wine, honey and meat farms and apple orchards; and most importantly takes the time to listen, evaluate and propose suggestions and courses of action for wellness, nutrition and lifestyle strategies.  Dr Noah is all about helping to create the well balanced plan for a healthier self.  My successes to date:  a 34 lb weight loss, a more educated self making healthier food & supplement choices and a spring to my step.  I still have a way to go however the  journey is that much less painful and full of smiles.  Thank you Dr. Noah & Family Chiropractic  Center of Bayonne.

2. I came across the Family Chiropractic Center of Bayonne through a desperate Google search trying to deal with my back pain. What I found was a group of people who care about the health and happiness of my family. Outside of helping me with my back pain and teaching me the importance of chiropractic care, Dr. Noah has become a partner in my path to wellness. When I got to my wits end with my back pain I was also fed up with my digestive health, it just so happened that Dr. Noah was on the same journey. He is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about making everyone that walks into the practice healthier than they were before. At 30 I feel happier and healthier than ever have and I can attribute a lot of that to Dr. Noah. I trust his advice and appreciate all that he has done for me and my family.

3. Two and a half months ago I was 265 lbs taking blood pressure and cholesterol medication, suffering from lung disease that prevented me from walking up a flight of stairs without losing my breath let alone working out to get in shape.  My seasonal allergies were killing me.  Then I visited Dr. Noah and he told me about The Paleo Diet.  I read the books and it seemed to make sense to me.  In the ensuing months I have lost 28 pounds, been taken off blood pressure and cholesterol medications due to my great blood work and I am jogging again, my allergies are all but gone.  In general for the first time in years I can say I feel great.  To say Paleo and Dr. Noah have changed my life is an understatement.
