The Doctor Recommends

Coenzyme Q10
Coenzyme Q10 is found in every cell in your body. CoQ10 is critical in the production of energy within each cell in the human body. CoQ10 is essential for the health of cells, tissues, and organs, and CoQ10 acts as part of another class of substances – enzymes. The role of enzymes is to facilitate, and act as a catalyst for countless chemical reactions in the human body.

Coenzymes like CoQ10 facilitates the activities of enzymes. CoQ10 has POWERFUL antioxidant effects, and destroys free radicals in your body. CoQ10 has an important role in energy production for athletes and bodybuilders. CoQ10 helps the body’s energy production in the form of  Adenine TriPhosphate (ATP).

So why supplement?  Multiple health benefits:

  • CoQ10 can help weight loss because it helps stimulate the body’s metabolism.
  • CoQ10 is essential in cell respiration, electron transfer, ATP production, and the control of oxidation reactions.
  • CoQ10 plays a key role in treatment of cardiovascular illnesses.

Juicer
Most people do not eat enough fresh fruit and vegetables daily. Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice contains no added white sugar, salt, tap water or additives, unlike even some of the best market bought orange juice. Nutritional value is lost when juice is exposed to light, heat, and air which stimulate the process of oxidation. Fresh Juices are "raw" or "live food" and very high in nutritional value.  I recommend 2 juicers. If you plan on juicing more than just citrus fruits, and you want carrot juice and apple juice, etc. I would suggest the Jack Lalane juicer.

Proper Cleansing/Sanitation
We all like to be around clean people, right? Besides daily showers, hand, feet care and care of mouth and teeth, there are other alternative methods.  One method that I have seen benefit is the practice of nasal cleaning – known as NETI -  used by practitioners of Ayurveda and Yoga in India for thousands of years.  Neti is one of the 6 purification techniques performed prior to practicing yoga as a way of preparing the body for the yoga practice. Neti is an effective, all-natural way to cleanse the nose and help control sinus and nasal symptoms over time.

People with allergy/dust sensitivity, or even if you don’t have any sensitivity to dust, one of the better air filter/purifiers out there that I feel works well for the money is the Oreck air filter/ionizer.  I have a couple of them myself and believe in their effectiveness.

Ergonomics
The term “ergonomics” is derived from two Greek words: “ergon”, meaning work and “nomoi”, meaning natural laws. Ergonomists study human capabilities in relationship to work demands.

The following are items that I recommend people use while sitting or doing repetitive movements while seated at the computer.

Home Pain Management Products
When it comes to physical therapy, chances are that after you complete the initial stages of treatment, you will eventually continue with Maintenance care or Supportive care. During the supportive care phase,  there are products that you can use at home that will either reduce pain or the chances of future pain and discomfort.

There are also a few products that can be used if an exacerbation occurs.  Ice packs, as long as they are soft and big enough, can be purchased anywhere. I have a sturdy one listed here. Pain relieving gels like Biofreeze and Kool n Fit are a little bit harder to find. Tens units (home electrical stimulation units, used for pain control), can only be purchased if you are an existing patient, or if you have a doctor’s prescription.
