90% of all anxiety drugs in the world are consumed by Americans. While prescription drugs have their place, our health care system has overused prescription drugs when there are drug-free alternatives. In this episode, we talk about:
--Why you should see a Structure-Function doctor FIRST before seeking Disease Care (and the difference between the two types of care).
--When the stress response becomes unhealthy ("DIStress") causing damage to your endocrine system, a fried nervous system, and harmful changes in the body.
--How we can feel emotionally paralyzed (not being able to move forward or backward) and why it is called the "reptilian brain" response.
--How too much Copper in your body can lead to an over-excited nervous system and over-excited endocrine system, leading to an improper stress response.
--That Calcium-Magnesium imbalance, high Mercury, and high Lead all throw off proper stress response. And why having the appropriate lab tests is so important to determine these things.
--Why Dr. Prather says 80% of the patients he sees are in the wrong "Fight-Flight" Sympathetic System mode where they have a "broken down endocrine system".
--How to rebuild the nervous system, rebuild the endocrine system, and boost the body's immune system to battle anxiety through Functional Care. And the different products available (80,000!) that Dr. Prather uses to help renew and rejuvenate the body, including Nutritionals, Herbals, Flower Remedies, Homeopathics, Glandulars, and Mineral Balancing products.
--The Structural Care options to treat Anxiety, such as Chiropractic and Acupuncture. Plus, how Auriculotherapy and Brain Core Therapy help relieve Anxiety.
--Why Dr. Prather calls it one of his "secrets to success" to combine Functional and Structural Care to achieve better patient outcomes.
