Would you pass this test??



As you may (or may not) know, brain health is one of my passions. The brain is the most complex organ in the human body and plays a vital role in nearly every bodily function. When the brain is "broken," out of balance, or not working properly, it can affect our overall health in many ways and in varying degrees.

Here at Oasis Family Medicine, we offer Brain Mapping tests as part of our treatment services. The qualitative EEG, or Brain Mapping test can assist us in assessing brain function, check overall brain health, and correctly diagnose brain-related health issues. While MRIs and CAT Scans do show structural changes in the brain, they do not show how well the brain is functioning. That's where Brain Mapping comes in. There are several different types of brain waves (Beta, Alpha, Theta an Delta), each with their own purpose, and Brain Mapping helps measure these brain waves and shows how each area of the brain is functioning at appropriate times. Many of the health conditions related to poor brain function are:
  • ADHD & Learning Issues
  • Addiction & Abuse
  • Anxiety & Stress
  • Brain Injury & Concussion
  • Chronic Pain & Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Epilepsy & Seizures
  • Insomnia & Sleep Issues
  • Memory Loss
  • Migraines
  • Stroke
  • And More
If you (or someone you know) thinks that improper brain function may be a health issue, I highly recommend the brain mapping test. It provides valuable data to enable us to formulate the correct treatment plan for whatever health issues you are facing.

You can find out more about brain mapping on our website here, or feel free to contact the office at 818-957-6909. And be sure to watch the video below :)

Bayer + Monsanto = A Match Made In Hell

Have you heard that Bayer bought Monsanto? Get the real story behind this highly concerning merger. Just passing along some interesting info.  You be the judge.


The past week in California courts have resulted in a HUGE win for validating the toxicity of the pesticide RoundUp (Glyphosate). 

Monsanto must pay $289.2M because RoundUp/Glyphosate causes cancer

For the past 8 weeks, San Francisco has been home to a trial in which a former groundskeeper with terminal cancer sued Monsanto Company for exposure to RoundUp causing his cancer.  Today the jury returned a verdict ordering the agrochemical giant to pay $39.2 million in compensatory damages and $250 million in punitive damages for failing to warn consumers that exposure to RoundUp weed killer causes cancer.

A significant part of this case was based on secret internal Monsanto documents which showed that Monsanto that company employees “ghostwrote” scientific articles and paid outside scientists to publish the articles in their name.  This will be the first of many lawsuits, and hopefully the demise of RoundUp.

Ozone and the World Cup


Ozone made its way into the World Cup! Said to be one of the best soccer players alive, Cristiano Ronaldo, uses ozone to quicken his recovery.

Here is a short and interesting article (sorry it's in Spanish, you can use Google translate!) that talks about Cristiano Ronaldo and his use of ozone.  The short article implies that he uses ozone injections directly into joints and/or soft tissues to speed up healing and recovery. 

"Among the supposed benefits of its injection is an improvement in microcirculation, vascularization and tissue oxygenation, as well as work as an antimicrobial agent, anti-inflammatory and stimulation of the body's defenses, and a protection against cellular aging."

Ozone can be used for a variety of health conditions and even as an aid to world-class athletes! 

For those who are not already aware, you can learn more about the direct joint and/or soft tissue ozone injections we do in our office here: http://naturalkneetherapy.com.

A quick search of PubMed yields this study done in 2017. "Comparison between intra-articular ozone and placebo in the treatment of knee osteoarthritis: A randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled study".  The conclusion of the 98 person study was that "the study confirms the efficacy of ozone concerning pain relief, functional improvement, and quality of life in patients with knee osteoarthritis."

Interesting!

For more on ozone and how it can benefit you, please watch the video below or contact the office at 818-957-6909.

An interview with Dr. Yoshi

As you know, one of the treatment modalities offered here at Oasis Family Medicine is Regenerative Medicine, which includes Stem Cell Therapy. It is my ongoing goal to provide up-to-date educational information and insight to you so that you can continue to make informed decisions on your overall healthcare.

Recently, I did an interview on Stem Cell Therapy with the East Glendale Advice Givers™ where I talk about the untapped potential of this ground-breaking treatment for a myriad of health conditions.  From a personal perspective, I can sincerely say that Stem Cell Therapy has made the difference in the lives of my own family members, which I talk about in the interview linked below. 

It is true that Stem Cell Therapy may not be a feasible treatment option for everyone, and it won't treat every health condition, but in those instances where it can be used, it does provide huge potential for amazing results. I encourage you to find out all you can on the subject to determine if Stem Cell Therapy can help with your own chronic health issues.

To listen to the full interview (as heard on iTunes, featured on East Glendale Advice Givers™ Podcast), click to listen to the podcast below. You can download a copy of the podcast transcript here.

You can also get more info on Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Therapy on our website here. If you have more questions, please feel free to contact the office at 818-957-6909.

CBD & Medical Cannabis


Recently, I have had several people ask questions about CBD oil, so I decided it would be good to share some educational material on the subject with you. Please read through the information and watch the video below :)

What is CBD?

CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is cannabis without the "getting high" psychoactive effect.

Cannabis Sativa is the same name for marijuana or hemp.

  • Hemp by legal definition is less than 0.3% THC. CBD is derived from Hemp.
  • THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) – is what makes you “high” by impairing motor function and cognition.
  • THC content is what dictates the legality of Cannabis.

Research

As can be seen by searching PubMed, the medicinal and therapeutic effects of CBD are becoming more widely studied. Research clearly suggests a possible therapeutic medical effect for a number of conditions, as it is anti-inflammatory and modulates the immune system.

Main ways CBD can help:
  • Anti-Inflammatory
  • Pain
  • Immunomodulatory
  • Sleep
  • Seizures
  • Digestive issues, including:
    • Inflammatory bowel disease IBD – preliminary data is promising
    • Irritable bowel syndrome IBS – speculatively, may be more helpful for those with IBS – D (diarrhea)
  • Neurological issues
    • Anti-Anxiety
    • MS
    • Dementia / Alzheimer’s
    • Parkinson’s
    • Nerve pain

Cannabinoids and Autoimmune Disease


Benefits of THC

  • Per research, THC may be favorable over CBD for those with oncological involvement.

Contraindications to THC

  • THC – Do NOT take THC if you are prone to or have dizziness, anxiety, fragile psyche, or cardiovascular disease.

What to look for with a CBD product:
  • Where is it from?
  • How organically was it raised?
  • How clean was the processing?
  • Look for 3rd party certification of analysis, testing for toxins and pesticides.

Quality assurance is important

Side Effects of CBD


  • When taken orally, CBD can alter other drugs you may be taking, so it is worth asking your doctor.
  • Paranoia can increase. This is mostly a THC issue (MUCH less so with CBD).
  • Side effects can also depend on your genetics, as with just about every other supplement, herb and drug.
  • Too much of ANYTHING is bad (even Oxygen or Water). The same holds true with CBD, so common sense is great to employ as well.

CBD Dosing


  • "Start low, go slow."
  • 5-10 mg of CBD, dosed once to twice per day.
  • Re-evaluate after a week on a particular dose moving up by 5-10 mg each week to see if you need to increase.
  • Most people will end up on just 5-25 mg daily (but please ask your healthcare professional, especially if going for a higher dose).

IMPORTANT NOTE ON THIS SUBJECT:  While I am a physician, please consider this as just educational information and NOT medical advice.  Ask your healthcare provider (or Dr. Kuo or me if we are your healthcare provider) for specifics.
