It also means that partially broken down food isn't making it to your large intestine where they are feeding up dysbiotic (bad) bacteria. If you are having gut issues, a good quality enzyme is really important, and you probably need it. The enzyme I like the best also has a few probiotics, which help acidify your large intestine. Take with every meal.
The second product that I really like, and in a perfect world I would start all my patients on for a month before treatment is curcumin. It is a potent anti inflammatory- in the gut or otherwise. In Chinese Medicine we use curcumin for pain, abdominal pain, menstrual pain, and shoulder pain. Our product from Designs for Health is bioavailable and really effective.
I think we can all agree we are ready to say goodbye to the shit show that was 2020. Goodbye sneaky rat, hello the hard working, dependable ox energy. The ox is a strong-willed animal and it is believed it values family and teamwork. This is exactly the energy we need to rebuild and repair after a chaotic 2020. The Ox gets things done but is also stubborn, slow and might be the best at communicating. This means we'll all have to reach deep inside and find the patience and focus we need to persevere and get through the year.
But you, dear reader, may not be playing with the same deck of cards they have.
We practice the Kalish Method of functional medicine. We test your Adrenal, GI, and Detox systems, and make a plan based on your personal circumstances. We correct the problems in the order that they occurred. We check to be sure that your endocrine system is balanced before we jump into a GI program, so that your body can maintain a balanced state on its own. We take the seemingly random chaos of symptoms and organize them into logical physiologic systems and address the problems systematically.

We know it is important that we be transparent about our choices. We realize that many people have concerns about the vaccine, so we want you to know how we made our decisions.
We, too, had concerns but we did our research and talked with each other and other health care providers. We weighed our concerns, our research, the enormous toll the pandemic is taking, and our commitment as healthcare practitioners to do no harm. We concluded that getting vaccinated as soon as we’re eligible is the right decision for us. Here we are a few weeks later, feeling lucky to have gotten it.
Jennifer and Elanita both received the Moderna vaccine and agree that the first dose was much easier to handle than the second dose. While we experienced nausea, chills, mild fever, swollen lymph nodes, headaches, and fatigue about 12 hours after the second dose, symptoms had mostly resolved after 36-48 hours and we don't have one ounce of regret. We understood that our symptoms we're really side effects per say but an immune response which is what we wanted.
Here are some suggestions for minimizing the side effects of the vaccine.
Contact your primary care provider, insurance provider or County or City Health Department where you live or work for further information about vaccine clinics and availabilityIf this doesn't work - let us know we are here to help make sure you get the resources you need.
