Hello and welcome again to the winter wellness podcast here at winter wellness calm. My name is Mike Stewart. I’m here with Dr. JACK winter. Our resident expert on all things wellness. And jack, are you ready to talk about a new subject today?
Yes, Mike, I am ready.
Well, I heard that you want to talk about digestive problems. And you know, I have had my share. I have a hiatal hernia, I’ve had acid reflux. I know what GERD is. I mean, there are so many problems. I personally, when I started changing my diet, not drinking anything alcoholic. And of course, there’s a couple other things that I have pulled out. You know, a lot of those things improve, but I want to hear what your take on digestive problems, the ones that people have and what winter wellness can do to solve those problems.
Good. Mike, let’s talk about that. By the way, congratulations on doing the things you’ve done. To encourage people to do the same thing you’ve done as well. I know when you get results like that is more encouragement. To keep on going. So I just kind of want to give an overview about, again, when people have digestive problems. What do you think is drugs? And the only answer? We’re finding Actually, that’s not really the only answer. And sometimes that’s not even the answer. So I’ll just give you an example of a man that came into my office. He was having 1012 bowel movements a day. When he left his home, he had to figure out what where he could stop along the way to find a restroom because he couldn’t make it from one place to another. Can you imagine 10 to 12 bowel movements a day. They’re usually loose stools, and each episode was explosive when he had the involvement. This process went on for years. It was actually just ruin and ruin his life. What was happening? This process is he went to the doctors and he tried the medication and they suggested fine got to the point that he had the body section, and he wasn’t ready to do that. He said there’s got to be some other reason. So He had a chance and opportunity to come work with us. And I want to tell you some things about this whole process. Before I tell you how this result came out to be. What he had, by the way, what they diagnosed with him was irritable bowel syndrome, like you mentioned earlier about girls and hiatal hernias, and these are all part of that digestive problem. So we’re going to talk about that whole overview of all these kinds of things are going on to people with digestive problems are having now.
So I looked up and this they tell us about 79% of Americans have digestive problems at some point or another. 79% is a large number, it’s into the millions. So what’s sad about this is that when people have these kinds of problems when they go to their doctor, but doctors don’t really have any good tests to find out. What do you really have here? You have, like blood tests, or stool samples, do x rays do tissue analysis and biopsies. So they’re looking for the problem, but they don’t have any definitive way to say this is really what your problem is. And this is what we have to solve. Your problem. So the diagnosis has been so scanty at this point that people become confused. Now the fact that doctors are confused about what really the problem really is. So here’s some of the names that people get from this digestive, gastrointestinal, gastrointestinal means it comes into your mouth and goes down through your stomach and your large, small and large intestine out your ball. That’s called gastro intestinal involvement. So anywhere along the way, you can have a problem with any of those areas. So they have a thing called GERD, like you mentioned that earlier. Goods means gastro esophageal reflux response, that’s what that means. And people a lot of people have that swallow, they can feel stuff in their throat. I didn’t go down or didn’t stay down, but they lay down it all comes back up again. You mentioned ear to wall syndrome. irritable bowel syndrome is active Oh, it’s actually inflamed. It’s painful to swelling, a lot of sharp pain and oftentimes, you’ve heard of also also to pull out Does all sorts actually in the large and small intestine is a chronic inflamed ball, acid reflux, or acid indigestion many people have and take things for that. By the way for years, heartburn, like you mentioned hiatal hernia, we see that a lot at the stomach that actually comes up into the esophagus, which is by the way, all fixable things, constipation and diarrhea. These are all part of gastrointestinal involvement. So all these names just described as there’s some kind of problem somewhere along the way, is causing your body not to digest properly or have a lot of pain as well along the way. So what the doctors are trying to do is take the very best guess they can give you something okay, we’ll solve that problem. That works. That was wonderful. And then we’ll try something different. What we’re always trying to do is find out the problem and correct the beat problems we can we do that now eliminate the problem. So here’s how you might see somebody out there you might see gap might see you stomach distension the eating certain kinds of kinds of foods and how to backup your system, you have to bring it back up to birth it back up. You have stomach or Donald pain or swelling, you’d have diarrhea or constipation, which by the way will find a lot of people constipation like it’s, it’s almost epidemic out there.
And you’re also just adult pain which also is fine like a dry cough, heartburn, even some asthmatic problems are coming from gastrointestinal problems. So, those are some of the many conditions that existed out there. But along with that you can have these things that are attributed to gastrointestinal problems, chronic fatigue, aches and pains just all over your body. decrease in your immunity reactions and itching, especially in the rectum area but can be on your skin as well. A lot of psychological problems. Again, when you don’t feel good, affects you emotionally. So now you’re irritable More often you’re angry and frustrated. Because these problems are consistent, persist. Every time you have a meal or you don’t don’t eat, you have the same kinds of problems after well, psychologically, they’re involved as well. So let’s look at some of the solutions to these problems and make you’ve done a good job. And you talked about diet and diet is number one. We’re always looking to people’s diet. And a lot of people say, Well, I’d like to change my diet, but I don’t really know what to do with that. And that’s one things we talked about in the office. And we’ll lay things out to them that how can they change the diet in such a way that one step after another they get get an improved their diet. And as you’ve done like, and if we have people do as well, we have to change the pattern. The learner pattern is causing these problems. You guys came some kind of a pattern and look at what you’re doing. How can we make it better? That’s what we’ll talk about in our office. Well, I was looking at live foods, that food come from the grocery store that actually outside the grocery store, fruits and vegetables, we want to put those into the system and we’re also talking about toxic water. When people are in the system because the water keeps flushing this catchment tester system out. I’m gonna think about live foods, by the way, because we’re thoughtful about the rubbish called Live enzymes to actually help the ball do its job digest that food and break it down. And then we also want to talk about other aspects of your life. Not just diet, but also exercise movement. And that extra doesn’t mean lifting weights. That means out there walking, moving around, going for hikes, yoga, if you like to do their bodies you like to event any activity gets body moving on why that happened because those muscles actually need that ball, help things move along the way and keep the guests on test the system, clear the movie. Also, we’re talking about emotional stress. You know a lot of things that people don’t want to talk about but don’t realize it have some kind of action on your body and when you’re stressed out, it affects how you breathe your short, tight breath affects the justice system. stomach is tight and Here’s the ball. So, the emotional states, big play big card here, as well as some people look at just laugh or smile more, get involved in living your life and enjoy your life and relax, because it’s all has to relax to do its job doesn’t have to have that tension especially put into it. And right now we’re kind of hovering around the corner virus pandemic, that stress a lot of people out that fear is affecting the gastrointestinal system as well. So give some WC field films or Laurel hardy films or three stooges or something, you get out there and laugh. I like Kevin Hart, personally. So people kinds of things you can do to get yourself laughing and relax here. Beyond that, find yourself a reputable health care provider. Someone who can help you realign your system get your body back for optimal health. Remember you buy is a self healer. It’s once a year this process is going to if you’re going to a health care professional that can help you relax allergist or chiropractor acupuncturist nutritionist, massage therapist, an exercise coach will be helpful to you just a natural path. You know, I’m a kinesiologist. So I’m really thoughtful about mutuality and how important it is and our system.
Can you say ology work with the whole body and our approach Not only is just physical but nutritional, emotional as well. So I like person, whole body approach. So I want to kind of like give a kind of a kick of what we do here. We’re wellness centers. We’ve been here for 37 years and the Gainesville Hall, county area, Georgia. We’ve had an opportunity working actually thousands of people with nutritional and aspects of healthcare, and certainly gastrointestinal system is foundational to your healthcare. But as we’re looking at the process of what we’re doing here, it’s difficult for many people to understand what chiropractor Can you tell us who helped me? Well, what we’ve done to give you the confidence of what we do We’ve actually developed about 130 different videos of people with all kinds of conditions, from cirrhosis of the liver to autoimmune disease, and cancer and chronic fatigue. And yes to irritable, irritable bowel and how hernias to insomnia. We put those videos out there because we want you to be able to understand you’re just like all the other people that came to our office and they got there as well. If you have the confidence, they see the content they got from what we did with them. And we’re not trying to throw that confidence in you as well. So by the way, I want to finish up that one story with you about the fella came in with intent to cause drama today. He know he’s working out two jobs. He has three to four Bob moments a day, half of those, most of those actually formed stores now. So his bowels are not clearing the way he’s supposed to. He’s starting to get he’s looking for a third job now. So now he has by telling him to live his life again. So that possibility happens not just with him but with you as well. So, again, in our, our office, the winter Wellness Center, we have a nutritionist board, I think the best in the world and in our staff, we’re going to find your problem, we’ll find out which ones we need to deal with, which areas of bio concern with yours and how we can solve that problem.
