Dr. Merkle: Keynote Speaker at the Clinical Society for Integrative Oncology

Dr. Van Merkle DCSeoul, Korea —April 21, 2019— Dr. Van Merkle was recently the keynote speaker at the Clinical Society for Integrative Oncology in Seoul, Korea. About 250 oncologists, researchers, and other medical doctors were in attendance. Several traveled from China specifically to hear Dr. Merkle, including some very renowned doctors.

Some of the most renowned doctors in attendance were: Dr. Jin Zhe, M.D. (urologist, professor at Peking University, in the elder care division); Dr. Zhang Jinping, (chair/director of 300 elder care hospitals in China – which covers approximately 100 million people); Dr. Seo Jungbok, O.M.D (K.M.D) vice president in DaeJung Elder Care Hospital in China; Dr. Fu Ping, (chairman of the Chinese Clinical Nutrition Association); Dr. Kim Kyungah, M.D. (G.P) team doctor of DaeJung Hospital, Korea; Dr. Park Minsoo, M.D. (G.P.) one of the most renown TV star doctors in Korea.

Interpreters were obviously needed however, many doctors from China and Korea were medically trained using English textbooks and spoke English fairly well. South Koreans can receive a free, fairly comprehensive blood test every 2 years through the government. There is great potential for natural oriented doctors to use lab testing in their nutrition practice, which is why Dr. Merkle was invited to speak.

Dr. Merkle spoke on laboratory testing and nutrition. He also discussed how serious problems sometimes have simple, safe, natural solutions. Maybe a week or 2 of trying a safe, natural, option might show dramatic laboratory results even in advanced cancer cases. Dr. Merkle presented several of his own cases, showing the validity of nutrition backed up with laboratory testing. Dr. Merkle’s presentation was enthusiastically received. Many doctors wanted pictures with him and he received several very nice gifts.

Dr. Merkle also presented certificates to 26 doctors of the first class trained in Korea using Dr. Merkle’s Science Based Nutrition (SBN) system. The class took the doctors a year to complete and was held by a South Korean doctor that has been using SBN for approximately 10 years. It has taken a long time to develop the SBN system and translate the reports into Korean.

Dr. Merkle was asked to travel to China, Dubai and Singapore and back to South Korea to lecture and train doctors on more natural care, as well as options for cancer and elder care. Those tend to be their most pressing and costly health problems. Dr. Merkle said, “Speaking at the oncology conference was very exciting. I also ate some great food and visited beautiful national landmarks but most importantly, I made some very good friends. I look forward to returning.”

Dr. Van D. Merkle DABCI, DCBCN, CCN, is an August 1982 graduate of Logan College of Chiropractic. He is board certified in clinical nutrition and a board certified clinical internist, who has practiced in Centerville, Ohio for over 35 years. He is the founder, developer and president of Science Based Nutrition (SBN) – a laboratory and nutrition, patented computer analysis system. He has been the host of the talk show Take 2 Healthcare on WHIO 95.7 FM every Saturday 11AM to noon for over 25 years.

Dr Kil took office as Interim President on May 2, 2019 following the resignation of Dr Laurie Tassell. The current term of office for Executive Officers expires in May 2020.

Dr Kil was elected to the Executive Committee in March 2018, which oversees the day-to-day activities of the WFC and works closely with the Secretariat.

The Benefits of Sleep with Proper Mattresses and How It Can Help Chiropractic Patients

portrait of a beautiful young woman sleeping on a cloud in the sky

Getting sleep is difficult, but it can be even more difficult for those who deal with chronic pain. A person might find themselves tossing and turning trying to get comfortable without pulling anything out of alignment. For many people, that’s a sign that it’s time to buy a new mattress that’s better suited for themselves.

 

Mattresses should be replaced every 6 to 10 years in order for them to be as supportive as they can be, but because they’re big purchases, many people delay the purchase.

 

Getting a new mattress won’t solve all of their issues, but it can go a long way to helping to make their lives easier. Here’s some of the ways that replacing a mattress with one that’s better suited for its user can be helpful for people who need chiropractic services.

More Comfortable Mattress Makes It Easier to Sleep

With a mattress that is suited to their bodies and its needs, it will be easier for chiropractic patients to get comfortable at night, and therefore be easier to sleep. A mattress that is well suited for them, whether they sleep on their side or on their backs will do them a lot of favors in the long run.

 

A comfortable mattress will make it easier for those sleeping in it to get REM sleep, making them feel more rested when they wake up.

Better Support Means Better Spinal Alignment

The older a mattress gets, the worse it is for supporting the people sleeping in it. It can stiffen or sag, depending on what the mattress is made out of. This will make its user sleep in positions that are less than ideal for their spines. Chiropractic patients in particular who struggle with back injuries will find that they need more support to keep everything where it should be.

 

The more support they have, the less work they will need from their chiropractors over time. It won’t fix their issues, but it will make them easier to deal with in the long run.

Better Sleep Means Less Likely to Be Injured

The better quality sleep someone gets, the less likely they are to be injured. This is due to several reasons. The human body does most of its healing while it is asleep, which is why patients are encouraged to get lots of rest when they are injured. People are also less likely to take risks they can’t handle when they have slept well, making them less likely to get injured.

 

Anyone who isn’t sure what type of mattress would help them the most should try talking to their chiropractor about what to look for in a mattress. They can also test out a lot of different mattresses at mattress stores, or take advantage of many online sellers’ return policies to find the right mattress for themselves. They are an investment that is worth making for your patients’ long term health needs.

“This partnership comes at an important time: within the next 10 years, it’s estimated half of all Chiropractors will be women,” says Kent S. Greenawalt, CEO, Foot Levelers. “The growth of the WDC is remarkable, and we are very excited to partner with this outstanding organization.  Our entire team will work toward helping the organization to further empower female doctors in Chiropractic technique, leadership roles, educational opportunities, and practical growth.

Dr. Cyndy Shaft-Toll, WDC founder, says “WDC connects caring, compassionate, confident and charitable Chiropractors.  We know that many female patients prefer to see doctors with whom they feel a connection. Together, we are committed to keeping our minds and hearts open, elevating women Chiropractors and students by encouraging growth and igniting the change we all want to see in the world.”

 

Shaft-Toll added: “Foot Levelers’ generosity will help our organization provide resources to raise up women leaders in the Chiropractic profession.

Metagenics to Launch Personalized Lifestyle Medicine Center (PLMC)

Personalized Lifestyle Medicine Center by Metagenics

Gig Harbor, WA, location to host patient clinic and research laboratory on-site

ALISO VIEJO, CA, January 24, 2019 – Metagenics, Inc., a health sciences company, today announced the opening of the Personalized Lifestyle Medicine Center (PLMC), a clinical research laboratory and patient clinic, at its Gig Harbor, Washington, location.

A shared vision of Jeffrey Bland, PhD, Joseph Lamb, MD, and Metagenics CEO Brent Eck, the PLMC will be a research laboratory, as well as a state-of-the-art medical clinic with insurance-billing capabilities. It will be staffed with practitioners for the purpose of providing healthcare to members of the public. The Center will follow a personalized lifestyle medicine approach, tailoring its therapeutic programs to each individual patient.

Dr. Jeffrey Bland stated, “I am so pleased to see the opening of the Gig Harbor Personalized Lifestyle Medicine Center that — through its excellence in patient management and research efforts — will accelerate the availability and adoption of this important approach to the prevention and management of chronic disease.”

Heading up the PLMC will be Dr. Joseph Lamb.

“It is with great pleasure that I return to Gig Harbor,” said Dr. Lamb. “Thanks to Brent Eck and Dr. Bland, this unique collaboration is actually re-creating the best elements of a research center that had done groundbreaking studies in Functional Medicine and is now combining those with the best practices of a personalized medicine approach. Good healthcare should be widely available, and our delivery of care in an insurance-based reimbursement model will make this care available in our community.”

“The fundamental goal of the PLMC is to match a personal approach to health to each individual’s needs and capabilities,” said Brent Eck. “Our belief is that much of our health is a very learnable set of skills — a series of small behaviors performed day in and day out, repeatedly over the long term. We also believe that the healthcare practitioner is the key advisor on that individualized learning journey. That’s personalized lifestyle medicine; that’s the future of healthcare.”

PLMC to Employ Clinical Trial Model to Build Unique Data Set Certain chronic diseases are related to lifestyle and aging, and they are taking an increasing toll on individuals’ efforts to maintain good health. As a result, there is a significant unmet need to identify the value of a personalized lifestyle medicine approach for improving health measures, through diet, nutritional supplementation, exercise and mind-body programs.

A significant element of the PLMC will be its groundbreaking research program, which eventually will be used to develop therapeutic tools and programs that will permit personalized lifestyle practitioners to meet this need.

Metagenics is supporting a team of investigators in this research program — the LIFE-HOUSE Team (“Lifestyle Intervention and Functional Evaluation—a Health Outcomes Survey). Team members Joseph Lamb, MD; Michael Stone, MD; Deanna Minich, PhD; and Sara Gottfried, MD have built a truly unique clinical- trial model. Their model utilizes a tent-umbrella-bucket design to gather data on individuals, both as individual patients and as members of an overall employee health population. The vision for this project is that excellence of care will benefit the individual participants, with widening ripples of influence upon their workplaces, their families, their communities, and ultimately upon the way medicine is practiced in the 21st century.

The initial data for this program are being gathered in order to make correlations among genes, the microbiome, diet, blood markers, and similar factors, with the goal of helping to make predictions for therapeutic programs.

Opening to the public January 24, the PLMC will be a separate entity from Metagenics, Inc.

About Metagenics, Inc. Metagenics was founded on a revolutionary idea: Our genes do not predetermine our health potential and, through nutrition, we can impact how our genes express themselves. Embodied by our company motto — “genetic potential through nutrition” — this groundbreaking principle drives us to deliver high-quality, science-based nutritional supplements, medical foods, and lifestyle programs. We support healthcare practitioners in their efforts to help patients achieve their health goals. With a range of nutritional solutions designed to support individual lifestyles — including non-GMO, gluten-free, and vegetarian offerings — we remain committed to supplying practitioners around the world with advanced tools to help improve patient outcomes.

New Study: Standing More at Work is Associated with Less Neck and Back Pain and More Optimal BMI for Office Workers

 

Start StandingDETROIT, MI – Locally based health organization announced today that their new study has revealed that standing more and sitting less is correlated with less neck and back pain and a more optimal BMI.  Start Standing researchers have come to these conclusions after analyzing survey data from office workers who typically sit and/or stand at their desks during a typical workday.

 

The first major finding is that “standers” (respondents who stand 20% or more of the time) experience 31% less back pain than “sitters” (respondents who stand less than 20% of the time), on average.  The study also found that “standers” experience 28% less neck pain than their “sitters” counterparts.  The final major finding was that “standers” report having an average BMI of 24.9 while “sitters” reported an average BMI of 27.1 – a difference of 8%.  Thus, standing more at work is associated with neck and back pain and a more optimal BMI for office workers.

 

Author Dr. RJ Burr asks, “Is the difference maker of the statistics really standing versus sitting, or maybe people who stand at work already tend to be health conscious, practicing other health-conscious habits like walking, exercise, and diet/nutrition?… I believe, at very least, standing at work imparts active behaviors and a healthy mindset, which leads to overall wellness.”

 

About Start Standing

Start Standing was founded by Ryan Fiorenzi, in partnership with Dr. RJ Burr, following years of debilitating back.  After having talked to dozens of chiropractors, physical therapists and other experts his pain was gone and his mission became to help others by introducing them to the power of a movement-based lifestyle.  Ryan assembled a team of passionate and knowledgeable health professionals to help him create step-by-step programs to that show people how to lead a more active lifestyle. Start Standing provides comprehensive product guides and consumer reviews to help people make better and more informed choices.
