Regenerative Medicine: El Paso

Regenr8 is a company we work with that developed an Epigenetic Biomarker Profile test to assess where your body is lacking in essential vitamins and minerals, hindering proper expression of biochemical pathways. The test determines the impact of your environment based on your unique gene function by identifying various metabolites based on the metabolic and enzymatic cellular process. 

The test will show an assessment of overall cellular energy production, methylation activity, vitamins, inflammation and oxidative stress, sleep markers, muscular performance, gut dysbiosis, amino acids, and neurotransmitters. Based on your test results, they create an all-natural, organic, and plant-based superfood that you are able to drink daily to ensure your body is getting the nutrients it needs.

Functional Wellness: PCOS

The first Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) conference was held in 1990 and discussed what PCOS is and how they were diagnosing and treating patients. They looked at oligo-anovulation, no ovulation, and too many androgens. Now, we use the Rotterdam criteria. This criterion groups together anovulation abnormal ovulation, clinical hirsutism acne (signs of hyperandrogens), and an ultrasound to view the presence of 12 or more follicles and determines if you have two out of those three then you are diagnosed with PCOS. There are multiple pathways that PCOS develops. Ultimately, these pathways are categorized into 4 groups: LIfestyle induced PCOS, Poor Fat Digestion/Sugar Burner, Inflammatory Diet/Poor Food Choices, and Genetic Predisposition.

Viruses: What Are They? | El Paso Texas Chiropractic Health Coach

Viruses: What Are They?

What exactly is a virus? A virus is actually so small it can not be seen by a microscope! But it can stay dormant in the body for years, waiting for the right time to attack. When the immune system is compromised, this allows for the virus to bind to live tissue and quickly invade a host cell. Once inside, the virus takes control and begins to multiply itself, quickly spreading throughout the body. Foods like heavy creams and coconut oil contain Monolaurin and help in dissolving the protective membrane of a virus, leaving it with no main defense mechanisms and unable to attach to a host cell.
