IBD may be at an increased risk for getting skin cancer <http://www.webmd.com/melanoma-skin-cancer/default.htm> , according to a study presented at the American College of Gastroenterology’s annual meeting in San Diego.


Wednesday night classes (7-8pm or thereabouts) will discuss biological management of such conditions as inflammatory bowel disease versus immunosuppresant use of IBD drugs – purinethol, remicade, or imuran – which increase the risk by 4 fold after 1 year of use.


The ingestion of  inappropriate food proteins is responsible for such inflammation and must be eliminated supported by supplemental microflora.
The resistivity testing of saliva indicates whether the bowel is irritated/inflamed; refer to office handout 210 about this testing.

Lancet. 2009 Oct 17;374(9698):1305-6. <http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19837236?itool=EntrezSystem2.PEntrez.Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_RVAbstract>

BACKGROUND: Although fever is part of the normal inflammatory process after immunisation, prophylactic antipyretic drugs are sometimes recommended to allay concerns of high fever and febrile convulsion. .


INTERPRETATION: Although febrile reactions significantly decreased, prophylactic administration of antipyretic drugs at the time of vaccination should not be routinely recommended since antibody responses to several vaccine antigens were reduced.


FUNDING: GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals (Belgium).

Posted October 15, 2009


COMMENT: This means it is not advisable to use anti fever drugs such as tylenol or ibuprophen because they suppress the fever, which suppresses the immune response. Note: The safe way to lower excessive body temperature without aborting the immune system is to take a lukewarm bath.


A Wednesday night will discuss in depth how to manipulate the immune response biologically to resist infection — reserve a seat.

This is the psoas muscle.

It is often involved in both acute and chronic low back pain; it should be stretched daily.  If you cannot remember how to do this be certain to ask to be shown how to do this next time you are in the office.
Remember there is no cure for pain — we need pain.
It tells us when we have exceeded our capacity.
It is a management issue.
The most effective means of dealing with back pain is joint and muscle manipulation – chiropractic care with specific exercise and regular maintenance care.


Look forward to seeing you — hopefully once a month — it’s easier on both of us.
