Buffalo Chicken Meatballs & Vegan Ranch Dressing

Ingredients:

· 1 lb. ground organic chicken

· 2 sprigs of green onion, finely chopped

· 1 celery stalk, trimmed and finely diced

· 1 tbsp. almond flour

· 1 tbsp. soy free Veganaise

· 1 tsp. onion powder

Cauliflower Potato Salad

Cauliflower Potato Salad


I hope you enjoy this healthy twist on a classic favorite. This Cauliflower “Potato” Salad is a great make-ahead dish. Top with a couple slices of crumbled organic turkey bacon for an easy lunch. You can also boost your plant-based protein by topping with a couple tablespoons of hemp hearts for vegetarians.

Cauliflower “Potato” Salad

Ingredients:

· 4 cups cauliflower florets (about 2 small heads)

Cauliflower Marinade:

· 3 tbsp. fresh lemon Juice

· 2 tbsp. cold pressed olive oil

· ½ tsp. Himalayan pink salt

Add-ins:

· ¼ cup diced white onions

· 1 small red bell pepper, finely diced

· ½ cup diced celery (2 stalks)

· 2 tbsp. chives or green onions sliced thin

· Optional: whole black olives

Cauliflower

Creamy “ Mayo” sauce (if you need a time saver, you can substitute this homemade mayo with 1 cup of soy-free vegainaise- but this dressing is amazing and so worth the effort)

· ½ cup cashews, soaked in filtered water for 2 hours (strain soaking liquid before adding to the recipe)

· 1 medium zucchini, peeled and rough chop

· 2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice

· 2 tbsp. raw apple cider vinegar

· 2 tsp. spicy stone ground mustard

· 1-2 tbsp. fresh or dried dill

· 1 tsp. turmeric

· 1 tsp. Himalayan pink salt

· 1 tsp. onion powder

· ¾ tsp. smoked paprika

· ½ tsp. black pepper

· ½ cup filtered water (as needed to blend)

Directions:

In a large bowl/container with a lid, whisk together all the ingredients for the cauliflower marinade. Add the cauliflower florets and toss well. Put the lid on the bowl and allow to marinate over night. This process will make the cauliflower light and bright in flavor. For a quick method, you can steam the cauliflower for about 10 minutes and then toss with marinade and cool in fridge for 1 hour before proceeding to the next step.

Next, make the homemade Mayo sauce. Place all ingredients, except for the water, in a blender. Blend until smooth and creamy. Add the water to adjust to a creamy salad dressing consistency. Place in the fridge to chill.

Next, assemble the salad. Place the marinated cauliflower in a colander to strain the excess liquid out.

Place the cauliflower in a large bowl, then toss in the Add-in ingredients.

Add Mayo sauce and toss well so everything is coated.

Chill in fridge for at least 1 hour prior to serving.

Understanding and Overcoming the Effects of Mold Toxicity and Biotoxin Illness


By Dr. Candice Hall, DC and Dr. Wayne Greathouse, DC

Individuals with mold toxitcity and biotoxin illness require the attention of an experienced functional medicine practitioner.

Did you know that it only takes 24 hours for harmful molds to develop in a moisture-impaired environment?1 According to a study by the Federal Facilities Council, 43 percent of the buildings tested showed signs of water damage.2 That means in a single day, your home could potentially endanger you with the risk of mold toxicity and biotoxin illness.

Exposure to indoor mold can cause an individual to experience respiratory distress, such as coughing and wheezing. However, further research links mold illness and biotoxin illness to psychiatric symptoms (including depression and anxiety) and cognitive symptoms (including brain fog and memory loss). Some patients are misdiagnosed with a purely psychiatric or cognitive condition. As a result, they are prescribed medications that are not appropriate because biotoxin illness was not identified as the root cause of their symptoms.

But as with most illnesses, biotoxin illness doesn’t need to take over your life. Understanding what causes mold toxicity, learning to identify the symptoms, and seeking qualified treatment can help you conquer the debilitating effects of mold toxicity.

Understand the Cause of Mold Toxicity

Mold toxicity occurs when someone comes into contact with one of many “biotoxins.” These biotoxins are poisonous substances produced by living organisms, with some of the most prevalent being toxic mold spores.3

Since mold spores need moist environments to thrive, homes with a moisture problem are prime targets.4 Often due to small leaks, improper ventilation, or defective plumbing, water damage can occur with little awareness on the part of the occupants. An excess of moisture can result in dangerous fungi, bacteria actinomycetes, mycobacteria, mold spores, and endotoxins.

Environmental tests are available to measure the presence and levels of mold and mycotoxins in your home. Tests such as the ERMI and the HERTSME can provide information on the location and levels of mycotoxins.

Once the mold develops, it releases toxic spores (often called mycotoxins) to reproduce. People inhale or come into contact with them through flooring, surfaces, and food. Once inside your system, these toxic spores can cause widespread inflammation in the blood and tissue.5 When your immune system tries to reject the foreign entity, it can cause you to feel some of the above symptoms. Even worse, it can set in motion a chronic illness such as Alzheimer’s disease, type 2 diabetes, or autoimmunity.

Identify the Mold Toxicity Symptoms

A recent study indicates exposure to mold is responsible for 21 percent of asthma cases in the United States.6 When mold spores infiltrate the lungs, they cause common respiratory problems such as coughing and wheezing that resemble the effects of any other lung and sinus irritant (like pollen).

Interestingly, only 25 percent of the population is genetically vulnerable to mold toxicity.7 Their inability to fight off biotoxins means their weakened immune systems may suffer from symptoms for months, a year, or longer.8

However, you do not have to be genetically vulnerable to mold toxicity to be plagued by biotoxin illness. Anyone with exposure to biotoxins or mycotoxins can experience symptoms or develop a chronic health condition. Fortunately, there are tests to see if an individual is afflicted with mold toxicity. These evaluations include VCS (visual contrast sensitivity) testing, blood analysis, NeuroQuant (multidimensional MRI of the brain), and other tests to assess metabolic and cellular health.

Regardless of genetics, once mold debilitates the immune system, research indicates it may also produce mystery symptoms that physicians can’t explain.9 These manifestations include memory loss, insomnia, chronic fatigue, headaches, anxiety, depression, and confusion.

The effects go beyond causing mystery symptoms that often lead to misdiagnosis of the issue. Mold and biotoxin illness can also be the trigger incident to a chronic disease such as autoimmune disease (e.g., lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and psoriasis), metabolic disease such as type 2 diabetes, and psychiatric conditions including ADHD, depression, and anxiety. For example, Next Advanced Medicine, is currently treating a family that resides in a home where mycotoxins exist.10 The family suffers from autoimmunity, cognitive decline, and cancer. They are all now being treated for biotoxin illness to address the root cause of all their conditions.

By making yourself aware of these psychiatric and physical symptoms, you can identify biotoxin illness before it escalates to unmanageable discomfort.

Seek Qualified Treatment

If you suspect you may be suffering from biotoxin illness or desire to get tested, find a functional medicine practitioner that specializes in treating mold illness. After a thorough evaluation, your functional medicine practitioner will create a detoxification protocol custom designed to address the root cause and biological imbalances caused by mold toxicity.

The first step is to reduce inflammatory foods that are high in processed sugar, sodium, and wheat flour.11 Introducing more fresh and organic foods—with proper hydration—into a diet will minimize the strain on the digestive system while strengthening the immune system.

The next step is to enlist dietary supplements, which help fight foreign biotoxins and enhance the body’s natural healing processes. Doctors may prescribe one or more of the following:

  • Liposomal vitamin C (with phosphatidylcholine and carnitine) to improve immune system functionality
  • Liposomal glutathione to help detox the blood
  • Omega 3 to help with internal inflammation
  • CoQ10 to bolster mitochondria and help kickstart the healing process
  • Binders such as cholestyramine (CSM) to help detoxify from the body

Finally, as with all illnesses, it’s essential to give the body plenty of time to rest. That means getting a solid seven to nine hours of sleep every night. Doing this will allow the body time to locate and fight the source of the illness.

Whether or not they’re aware of moisture in the home, everyone should be extra cautious of potential mold toxicity. By understanding the cause, identifying symptoms quickly, and choosing functional treatment options, we can overcome biotoxin illness.

Why an Air Purifier is so Important During COVID-19

WHY AN AIR PURIFIER IS SO IMPORTANT DURING COVID-19

Hi Everyone, Dr. Hall here again giving you a little true doc talk.

Today, I would like to share with you what I believe to be the number one cause of disease and the number 1 cause of weight gain;  Now, I have been working with chronically ill patients for over 25 years, I have treated thousands of patients, I have worked diligently to take these ill patients and help steer them back to a state of health and vitality, and a life free of disease. This has been my life’s work and I can tell you with conviction that I believe the number one cause of these illnesses is coming from the massive amount of toxins from our environment and our food.

Statistically, we are now at the point where one in every 2 males in the United States will be diagnosed with cancer and women are right behind them. More than 100 million Americans have diabetes or prediabetes. 23.5 million Americans are diagnosed with autoimmunity and 3 out of every 10 seniors are being diagnosed with Dementia!

No one, not even the EPA knows how many chemicals are in our environment, We do know that the EPA has a list of more than 85,000 chemicals listed on its inventory of substances that fall under the Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA). Out of the 85,000 chemicals that have been introduced into our environment since the industrial revolution, less than 300 have been tested for safety.

Studies have detected 287 chemicals in the umbilical cord blood of American babies. 180 are known to cause cancer in humans or animals, 217 are toxic to the brain and nervous system, and 208 cause birth defects or abnormal development in animal tests. If this is in the umbilical cord blood of an infant, what must be the toxic accumulation sitting in the blood supply of an American adult?

The biggest problem is many of these toxins are not just next to impossible to get out of our landfills, some of them are even harder to get out of our bodies.

We are all at risk from increasing chemical exposure; from the shampoo, lotion, makeup, soap and hairspray we use on our bodies, to plastic bottles and bags,  the off-gassing of our flooring, cars, and carpets, the chemically-laden cleaning supplies and laundry detergents, the water from our taps, and the air we breathe.

Even the dust in our homes is full of synthetic chemicals and fire retardants. Did you know the air in our homes can be 5 times more polluted than the air outside?  Modest estimates have suggested that collectively we are exposed to more than 700,000 different toxic chemicals on a daily basis, and I haven’t even mentioned what is in our food supply!

Do yourself a favor and open up your house. Get some fresh air moving through it and invest in some air purifiers. A good air purifier will not just take out toxins and impurities from the air but will get rid of microscopic viruses and bacteria. I have had all 4 of our air purifiers running 24/7 during the pandemic.  My favorite air purifiers are from a company called Triad AER. I always keep my unit in PCO or normal mode because in the high mode it makes ozone. Ozone can be good for a lot of things but breathing it is not one of them. So again, I keep mine in normal or PCO mode.

The Science of Sleep


 

You may be sabotaging your sleep without knowing it! Think about your current sleep routine. I’d be willing to bet you’re like most people and that your nighttime routine involves at least one digital device.

 

While scrolling through your social media or watching your favorite show may seem harmless enough, numerous studies have found the blue light emitted from these devices can keep us from getting a good night’s rest.

 

We all operate off an internal clock known as circadian (Sur-KAY-dee-un) rhythms. Researchers have known for a long time that light disrupts our internal clock and thus natural sleep cycles. Blue light from electronics is particularly worrisome. The blue light emissions from electronic devices affected how much melatonin is released. This is a critical sleep-regulating hormone. Studies reveal people using screens that emit blue light don’t make as much melatonin.

 

Recommendations suggest avoiding blue light exposure for at least 2 hours before sleep. This may be difficult if your nighttime routine solely involves electronic devices. The good news is that many manufacturers are heeding scientific findings and offer alternatives to the blue light.

 

Apple Users Apple’s “night shift” mode (for iOS versions 9.3 and higher) can be accessed from the settings menu under “display and brightness,” and it’s simple to set a schedule for automatic engagement during the hours you use your device before bedtime.

 

Android Users Activating this feature can be accomplished by downloading the “Night Mode Enabler” third party app from the Google Play store.

 

Research your other device makers to find out if they offer any light alternatives. The best option is to avoid your electronic devices before bed, but for those of you dependent on your nightly social media fix, the next best option is to reduce blue light exposure.

 

“Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.” — Benjamin Franklin

WATCH THIS INSPIRING AND FASCINATING INTERVIEW ON CORONAVIRUS WITH DR. ZACH BUSH, M.D.


Dr. Zach Bush, M.D. is one of the few triple board certified physicians in the world.  I have been waiting to hear his opinion on Covid-19, and here it is!  Enjoy this fascinating interview with one of the most respected doctors of our time.

There has been mixed information floating around not only on the internet but on the news. Many doctors like myself and many of my esteemed colleagues find ourselves perplexed by the decisions being made and the information being disseminated by our government officials and that of the CDC and WHO.  I will continue to put links on this website and our Facebook page that seem to match the research we are seeing on Pubmed.
One of the doctors that I have followed for many years is Dr. Zach Bush. Dr. Bush is one of the few triple board-certified physicians in the world and is often referred to as the “Einstein of medicine” among many of us in the functional medicine world. I have referred to some of his groundbreaking research in a couple of my books. I have been keeping my eye out to see what his opinions were on the current virus. Another doctor sent this interview to me recently. His explanations about what is really happening with this virus and the actions we need to take have made more sense than anything I have seen so far.
I hope you find the interview to be helpful in clarifying the current situation as it relates to your health.
Stay healthy,
Love Dr. Hall

COVID Hope

Hello all,
Dr. Hall again, keeping my promise to try and keep us all up to date on the latest with the coronavirus or COVID-19. I have some exciting news. The worlds leading expert on communicable diseases is Dr. Raoult. He runs the IHU. This institution is one of the world’s leading centers of expertise in Infectiology and microbiology. 
 
Dr. Raoult was authorized to conduct a clinical trial on the effects of Chloroquine or Plaquenil on the coronavirus. The results of his clinical study came out on March 16th confirming the spectacular therapeutic effects of Plaquenil on COVID-19 have been obtained. Here are the results of the study summarized. The study can be read in full.
 
Those who did not receive Plaquenil (a hydroxychloroquine drug) remained carriers after 6 days in 90 percent of cases compared to only 25 percent of cases remaining carriers if they received Plaquenil. 
Figure1-PCR-COVID-19
The IHU has also been advising that antibiotics be prescribed especially Azithromycin because there is proof that this lowers risk in people with viral infections. Azithromycin is also shown to be effective against a great many viruses although it is an antibiotic. Looking at the comparative percentages of positive carriers with the combination of the Plaquenil and Azithromycin there is an absolutely dramatic decrease in the number of positive carriers. The study also shows a decrease in the viral load of the patients who followed the protocol. In short, if you think you have the Coronavirus – Get tested and if positive, talk to your doctor or emergency room about this treatment protocol with Plaquenil and Azithromycin.

Directions:

Put all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth, add a bit of filtered water till you have reached desired creamy consistency.

Creamy Lemon Herb Sauce

Lemon-and-Garlic-Sauce-ramikin-with-fresh-cut-lemons

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium, thin-skinned ripe fragrant lemons, preferably seedless (about 1 pound), scrubbed, cut almost in half across middle, remove exposed seeds
  • 1 head garlic
  • 1 large shallot, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ cups Organic olive oil
  • ½ cup fresh herbs (I like a combo of basil, thyme, and a bit of rosemary)

Directions:

Place the oven rack in the middle position; and preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Wrap the garlic head in parchment paper and then wrap with a layer of foil. Place in oven to roast. Put the lemons, shallot, water and salt in a Dutch oven or any ovenproof, heavy-bottomed pot with a lid. Cover the pot, place in the oven and roast for about 1 hour and 30 minutes. After the first 30 minutes, check on the lemons every 15 to 20 minutes, stirring gently to coat the lemons with the liquid. If the lemons begin to brown, lower the oven temperature to 325 degrees to prevent scorching.

Watch for lemons to begin to collapse, and for the liquid in the pot to take on a golden hue and thicken slightly. The shallot will melt into the liquid.

Remove the pot from the oven when the lemon pith is completely translucent, and the juices have turned syrupy and caramel brown. Using tongs, grab a piece of lemon and use the softened fruit to mop the sides of the pot, loosening any bits. Drop that lemon back into the pot with the others.

Remove the garlic head & lemons and the accumulated liquid from the heat and let cool completely.

In a Blender- add lemons and liquid from pan, 3 cloves of the roasted garlic, olive oil, and herbs. Add salt to taste.  Blend until smooth. You can add a little bit of filtered water to loosen sauce to desired creamy consistency. This reminds me of a creamy hollandaise sauce- I love it served over vegetables like cauliflower and asparagus, and proteins such as wild fish and organic chicken.

Recipe note: The size of the lemons, the thickness of the pith, the heaviness of the pot, even swings in oven temperature, all affect the cooking time. Sometimes the lemons may need additional roasting beyond the suggested 1 1/2 hours for the pith to turn completely translucent.

Type 2 Diabetes Is Not a Life Sentence — 3 Patient Stories

dr-candice hall headshot-1

By Dr. Candice Hall, DC

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that 1 in 10 Americans have diabetes, which equals 34 million people. Up to 95 percent of those cases are type 2 diabetes. While type 1 diabetes is caused by the body’s inability to produce insulin properly, type 2 diabetes is caused by the body’s inability to use insulin properly.1

Like many things in life, insulin isn’t noticed until it goes missing. When the body cannot make enough insulin or use what it has, blood sugar rises and quality of life plummets. Even while the rate of new cases of diabetes declines, the number of diagnosed adults continues to rise. And so, many go on struggling, feeling resigned to a life of low energy, high medical costs, and uncertain futures.

But there is hope. Despite your feelings, type 2 diabetes is not a life sentence; it can be treated and even reversed, allowing you to get off of meds and take control of your life.

Here are just three of many stories we could share of the patients who’ve found freedom through Next Advanced Medicine—and whose success we can replicate for you.

Dominick Gutierrez

Lowered his A1C from 8.4 to 5.4
Lost 55 pounds
Click here to watch Dominick’s testimonial

Next Advanced Medicine _Dominick_GutierrezWhen Dominick was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, his blood sugar was so high that he couldn’t return to work. For over a month, he dipped into his vacation pay. But funds and time were both running out. He had already lost two brothers to diabetes, and with a third facing the same diagnosis, he knew the outlook was grim. So when he happened to see a Next Advanced Medicine commercial while out shopping for a Christmas gift, he was ready for a change.

In a very short time, Dominick’s life flipped entirely. His A1C dropped from 8.4 to 5.4—reversing his diabetes diagnosis—and he lost 55 pounds. He went from living entirely on drive-thru and take-out food to preparing his own meals and sharing recipes with his daughter—who couldn’t be happier with her dad’s transformation.

“It’s a whole new life. I have so much energy,” he says. “Honestly, I’m 48 years old. I feel like I’m 25. I’m up at 5 in the morning going for walks, and I have so much energy now, I can’t believe it. I feel like I’m high on life for this program.”

Raul Stamp

Lowered his A1C from 9.4 to 5.6
Lost 40 pounds
Click here to watch Raul’s testimonial

Next Advanced Medicine _Raul_StampWhen Raul was diagnosed as a diabetic in 2012, a part of him just accepted that the condition would take his life. After all, his father had died of diabetes only four days before turning 69. But when Raul actually came face to face with his mortality, a different switch was flipped.

“One day while driving to work, I sneezed and had a vertigo attack,” he says. “The world starting spinning. I had a semi-truck on each side of me, so I became terrified, and decided I had to do something.” And that something was turning to Next Advanced Medicine for help.

“Our mission is to help every individual achieve their goals by getting to the root of their affliction and developing a personalized course of action.”
—Dr. Candice Hall, DC

Raul had a rough road ahead of him. For too long, his daily routine had consisted of sitting at work, sitting in the car, and sitting at home. On the day of his brush with death, his blood sugar tested at 303. When he started the program, his A1C was 9.4, he weighed 285 pounds, and his cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood pressure were high.

After a thorough examination, the staff at Next Advanced Medicine developed a custom program for Raul that helped him to retake control of his future. By meticulously tracking everything he ate and exercising four times a week, Raul reversed his diabetes in just five months. Upon graduating, his A1C tested at 5.6, he had lost over 40 pounds, and his triglycerides, cholesterol, and blood pressure were all normal.

“I have more energy than I know what to do with. I’m building shelves and cabinets, and whatever else needs to be done around the house now,” he says. “I have to find something to do when I get home from work because I have so much energy, which I’m sure my wife appreciates—she won’t leave me alone.”

Dwayne Heath

Lowered his A1C from 8.1 to 5.5
Lost 70 pounds
Click here to watch Dwayne’s testimonial

Next Advanced Medicine _Dwayne_HeathDwayne first heard about Next Advanced Medicine when KFI radio’s Justin Worsham shared his father’s recovery story on the air. By then, Dwayne had been prediabetic for 10 years, with an A1C as high as 8.1. Hearing Justin talk about his father’s success was the final push he needed to take action.

In just six months with Next Advanced Medicine, Dwayne reversed his diabetes, lost 70 pounds, and dropped his A1C to 5.5. “It makes such a big difference,” he says. “I had a bilateral knee replacement five years ago, and I can tell the difference when I go for walks: I walk with more pep in my step, and less pain, and it will probably make my knees last longer.”

“It comes down to education and treating the whole person, not through pharmaceuticals, but through what you intake into your body, and fixing those areas of your body through the use of supplements,” Dwayne says. “It’s because you know what you are supposed to eat, and what you are not supposed to me. That education is the best will power you can have. When you know what foods are causing the problems, it’s easier to give those things up and stay on the path.”

“Now I can enjoy my five grandchildren for a lot longer than I expected to live.”

 

“At Next Advanced Medicine, we’ve treated hundreds of patients like Dominick, Raul, and Dwayne,” says founder Dr. Candice Hall, DC. “People come to us because they want to regain control of their health and improve their lives. Our mission is to help every individual achieve their goals by getting to the root of their affliction and developing a personalized course of action.”
