Immunonutrition by Dr Margaret Aranda

by Dr Margaret Aranda


Slowly but surely, we are going back to nature and the way that God made our body's to work, and maximizing the #ImmuneSystem to attack the "bad guys" in the bloodstream and tissues, hopefully leading to effects such as: anti-inflammatory, anti-stress oxidation, decreased free radicals, decreased chronic metabolic syndrome, decreased chronic inflammation, decreased diabetes, decreased cancer, decrease autoimmune disease, decreased "Invisible Illnesses" (It's ALL IN YOUR HEAD!"), decreased swelling of joints and marrow, and who knows? ....

It's all going to happen on a microscopic, cellular & molecular biology basis. We will work on getting better from the Inside, Out! That is a novel challenge before us, one which has not yet been adequately explored except perhaps by the JuicePlus+ Company, which has published multiple peer-reviewed manuscripts in scientific journals from pharmacology to Pediatrics, from Canada to England. Watch and wait, for it is coming, and it is going to "snowball" as others take this idea and become as buzzing bees in a beehive.

Hey, it's okay. Let them do it. You know why? Because "It's About Time."


#Immunonutrition


Can you say it? It is really not hard at all. What we are talking about here is the #Immune System that fights infection, viruses, and cancer; and #Nutrition that adds an "Army" of metabolites, vitamins, and minerals to 'Arm' the body's natural defenses. If you use God's natural, organic nutrition to boost the immune system and fight, INSIDE OUT, for a healthy and non-inflammatory, non-oxidative stress body on a microscopic, cellular and molecular basis, then we have:

Immune System + Nutrition = Immunonutrition


PROBLEM:
Lots of patients are learning about Rare Diseases on the internet. That's good!
Here are a few National groups:
Invisible Disabilities Association (IDA), (I'm on the Advisory Board, so <3)

Social Media Sites for Invisible Illnesses:
And many mainstream, major news media pick up on stories like
Huffington's Post's Chronic vs. Invisible illnesses
USNews Health's Life with a Chronic Illness

Dr Margaret Aranda Drafted "Invisible Illness Petition" to increase MD Education (If you haven't already, please go sign! ~ Thank You!)

So WHERE ARE ALL THE #IMMUNONUTRITION SITES FOR THE CHRONICALLY ILL?

Image of "#Immunonutrition" #Breakfast by #DrM. She likes to call this her "Brain Breakfast."


Dr Aranda's "Brain Breakfast" is filled with:
  • Blueberries (prevents Alzheimer's, especially in women)
  • Nonfat Greek yogurt (no fruit; plain and high protein)
  • Honeydew melon (adds collagen and other skin tissue elements to smooth wrinkles, make skin look young)
  • Chia seeds (omega-3 fatty acids for heart health)
  • Ground flax seeds (high fiber)...and what could be better?

If you freeze the fruit, make it into a smoothie and add JuicePlus+ Protein Powder! Build those muscles 20 min after a workout, and bust that brain out into the brilliance budding within! We'll look under the microscope later and see what's going on in the cells and molecules, but hey! Isn't this enough to make you go grab it? Dr Margaret Aranda's original recipe, just for you! Get better from the Inside, Out! Oh! And P.S. I tried to talk about this in 2012....but the response was uhmmm....underwhelming!
Get ready to make a new grocery list, okay?
  • Fish
  • 100% virgin olive oil
  • Canned tuna
  • Almonds
  • Peanuts
  • Walnuts
  • Raisins
  • Pumpkin Seeds
  • Flax Seed
  • Chia Seed
  • Nonfat yogurt, no fruit
  • Vegetables: red, orange, yellow, purple All!
and that's just the start!

 What is dystonia? Yvonne Maxwell knows all too well.

Dystonia is a neurologic movement disorder that is very debilitating or stool. It is Considered by many in social media to be in the classification of Invisible illnesses.  Listen to Yvonne Maxwell in the UK ... " In Jump For Dystonia " Challenge (See Video 1).  Excerpt from this most excellent and a Super,  under 4-min video:

"Definition of Paingry [cheeses * gree]:


(adj.) The description of the attitude of one living in chronic pain when they become snippy and short tempered. Usually brought about by any or all of thes of situations: pain medication has worn off, exhaustion, depression, frustration, fatigue, helplessness, and most of all love to pain. "

Dystonia Awareness Video 1 Video 2016. Dystonia syndrome is one that is frequently overlooked, misdiagnosed or not taken seriously. Let's the increased awareness!


Types of Dystonia:

Eyelid and a browser with blepharospasm are involved in muscles spasm.

Oromandibular Tongue and jaw (mouth) involvement (AKA cervical dystonia)

Laryngeal Airway he Spasmodic / vocal cord involvement: can lead to suffocation

Treatment:

Talk to your health care provider to see if you need therapy, alternative medicine, optimization of nutrition, and anti-inflammatory diet, medication, Botox (R) Injections, an option of Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) Surgery, it is much more. Certainly you need good sleep, day and night cycles, and some physical activity just to feel good. And a huge releases the chemical oxytocin that is also an anti-depressant. There's just so much you can do! So keep Believing!

Empower Yourself for Pain Management

 / by Dr Margaret Aranda /

 Pain Management is a huge area of extreme expertise. We have Subspecialties in several medical specialties, with physicians electing to do 1 extra year of Fellowship Training in order to be updated with the best bedside manner, compassion and use of today's technology to treat pain.

In less than 45 minutes from time of posting this article, Stanford Pain Medicine is holding a LIVE Stream broadcast for 6 hours, here:   / Dr Sean Mackey is Redlich Professor and Professor, by Courtesy, of Neurology at the Stanford University Medical Center. I know Dr Sean Mackey as we were both in Stanford's Anesthesiology residency. And I'm pleased and so grateful that my life circles around to bring Women and the Invisible Illness community into the fold of Excellence in Medicine.

SO I didn't get to keep my high heels on, ladies! And I've been bed-ridden for 10 years now. I lived on a PICC line for almost 4 years and you know what? I thought my life was over - and that wasn't just a fleeting thought as those of us with a chronic illness know. The devastation of being disabled is something that cannot be ignored. And you know what? I'm glad that my life has Purpose because nothing is going to stop me from being the best that I can be. I'll find a way. I'll do it.


Stanford also has the quintessential Stanford Medicine X program that 'approves' of patient self-awareness and self-advocacy. Music!

Pain Management Specialties:
The American Board of Pain Medicine has this to say on its website:



 "Recognition of the American Board of Pain Medicine In Federal and State Policies
The following chart shows the recognition of ABPM in federal and state policies. If you do not see your state or federal agency listed, please contact us at info@abpm.org to find out what you can do to help gain recognition.

U.S. Veterans Health Administration
2009 Pain Management Directive 2009-053
In 2009, the U.S. Veterans Health Administration (VHA) adopted "Standards of Pain Management" to improve the organization and delivery of integrated pain care throughout the VHA.  The Directive emphasizes the importance of “stepped, consultative care,” that includes ensuring primary care providers have access to specialists to help effectively evaluate and manage complex cases.  Under the heading “Clinician Competence and Expertise in Pain Management,” the Directive recommends that Pain Medicine specialists obtain and maintain one or more of the following certifications:  Pain Medicine specialty board certification by the American Board of Pain Medicine (ABPM) or subspecialty board certification in Pain Medicine or Hospice and Palliative Care Medicine by one of several American Board of Medical Specialty (ABMS) Boards.
Alabama
Act 2013-257; Article 11, Chapter 24, Title 34-24-1007
Alabama’s “Pain Management Act” was enacted to empower the Alabama Board of Medical Examiners with broad authority to regulate physicians who provide pain management services in the state.  Among the provisions, the Act requires physicians providing pain management services to register with the BME and access the Alabama Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP).  The Act also requires that pain management services be provided in a “practice location” that meets the Act’s standards relating to ownership and operation.  Every practice location must certify that it is under the direction of a medical director who meets the Act’s training requirements, which include specialty certification in pain medicine by the ABMS, AOA and Board certification by the ABPM.
California
CA Business and Professions Code, §651(h)(5)(A) & (B)
California’s Business and Professions code prohibits physicians from advertising that they are board-certified unless they are certified by an ABMS member specialty board, a specialty board with an ACGME accredited postgraduate training program or “a specialty board with “equivalent” requirements approved by the Medical Board of California’s Licensing Program.”  The Medical Board has approved the following four specialty boards:
  • American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (1995)
  • American Board of Pain Medicine (1996)
  • American Board of Sleep Medicine (1998)
  • American Board of Spine Surgery (2002)
Florida
Florida Board of Medicine Rule 64B8-11.001 – Advertising
Florida’s Board of Medicine formally recognizes ABPM as a specialty board, and authorizes ABPM Pain Medicine Diplomates to advertise as specialists in Florida.
Florida
FL Statutes 456.44  – Controlled substance prescribing law
Pursuant to this law, “Board-certified pain management physician” means a physician who possesses board certification in pain medicine by the American Board of Pain Medicine, board certification by the American Board of Interventional Pain Physicians, or board certification or sub-certification in pain management by a specialty board recognized by the American Association of Physician Specialists or an osteopathic physician who holds a certificate in Pain Management by the American Osteopathic Association.”
Georgia
Georgia Rule 360-3-.06 – Pain Management Protocol
The Georgia pain management protocol states: the Georgia Composite Medical Board “recognizes certifications in pain medicine or palliative medicine by the American Board of Medical Specialties or the American Osteopathic Association, the American Board of Pain Medicine and the American Board of Interventional Pain Physicians.”
Kentucky
201 KAR 9:250E - Registration and Oversight of Pain Management Facilities
The regulation details Kentucky’s requirements for owning pain management facilities.  The regulation imposes strict requirements for physician-owners or physician owner-designees who will actively practice medicine in the facility, to include an attestation that demonstrates current ABMS or AOA subspecialty certification in either pain management or hospice and palliative medicine or through certification by the American Board of Pain Medicine or American Board of Interventional Pain Physicians.
Ohio
OAC 4731-29-01 - Standards and procedures for the operation of a pain management clinic
Ohio code includes requirements regarding ownership and operation of pain management clinics.  Physician owners must demonstrate certification in pain management or hospice and palliative medicine by the ABMS, AOA BOS, American Board of Pain Medicine or American Board of Interventional Pain Physicians.  There are significant additional requirements for physician owners who cannot demonstrate one of these Board certifications.
Rhode IslandRules and Regulations for Pain Management, Opioid Use and the Registration of Distributors of Controlled Substances in Rhode Island [R21-28-CSD]

In February 2015, the Rhode Island Board of Medicine officially adopted a new opioid prescribing protocol, which includes ABPM Diplomates in the definition of "pain medicine physician." 
Tennessee
1200-34-01-.09)(d) Training Requirements for Medical Directors of Pain Clinics
Tennessee’s Department of Health adopted regulations to improve the care provided in “Pain Management Clinics.”  The regulation outlines the requirements for physicians who serve as medical directors of a clinic, including board certification by the American Board of Pain Medicine.
TennesseeTennessee Clinical Practice Guidelines for Management of Chronic Pain 
Within the Tennessee Clinical Practice Guidelines for Management of Chronic Pain, ABPM Diplomates are recognized as Pain Medicine specialists.
TexasAdvertisement of Board Certification 
The Texas Board of Medicine carefully reviewed all aspects of ABPM’s rigorous certification process and found them to be “substantially equivalent” to those required of ABMS member boards.  As reflected on the Texas Board of Medicine’s website, Texas Diplomates can now convey this well-earned certification to patients and for the purpose of advertising this well-earned credential.
Washington
Washington Annotated Code 246-919-863
As of March 2014, the State of Washington officially recognizes ABPM as an approved credentialing board under the state-endorsed definition of “pain medicine specialist.” The Washington State Medical Quality Assurance Commission took this action after reviewing the ABPM’s rigorous credentialing process, including qualifications for Applicants and the administration of ABPM’s certification examination.
West VirginiaWest Virginia Code - Article 5H - Chronic Pain Licensing Act 
West Virginia’s Chronic Pain Clinic Licensing Act established requirements for operating a pain management clinic. The regulation imposes strict requirements which mandates each pain management clinic shall designate a physician owner who shall practice at the clinic and be responsible for the operation of the clinic. The designated physician must meet one of the following training requirements: 1) complete a pain medicine fellowship that is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education or such other similar program as may be approved by the secretary; or 2) hold current board certification by the American Board of Pain Medicine or current board certification by the American Board of Anesthesiology or such other board certification as may be approved by the secretary."

Women who are aging in today's society need to know that there are many governmental issues overseeing pain management. Surely you've heard that drug use of opioid narcotics is something that's been looked at closely. There's no need to panic ~ but still ~ be informed. With Pain Management, your entire Quality of Life is affected:


Quality of Life (QoL) Issues with Pain Management:
  • Sleep - loss of circadian rhythm leads to insomina, mental health issues. You have to sleep
  • Diet - a poor nutrition diet will leave you without defenses against many illnesses
  • Exercise - I think that women can in pain develop an attitude of self-consciousness when their bodies can't work out to be as fit as they normally are. It was depressing for example, when I could no longer swim laps in a pool - I was 'reduced' to riding a reclining bike at home. Loss of outside sun, socializing with others, and just having that contact with the water left me depressed: that's normal
  • Emotions - exaggerated emotions frequently accompany a woman in pain. Of course. 
  • Socialization - it doesn't have to be complete 'isolation' that ruins a woman's psyche momentarily: even the loss of being able to take one's children to play at the park is very depressing to a woman who takes great pride in being the best mother that she can be
  • Business - the Power Woman can have changes in cognition when making huge and far-reaching conclusions and then making a grave decision that affects the lives of many employees 
  • Motherhood - so many women just 'miss out' on what they perceive to be weeks, months or years of staunch survival...that falls short of everyone else's expectations
  • Empathy - when others don't believe that a woman's pain is real, this can have devastating consequences on a woman's perception of how she views the world we live in - don't lose hope
  • Activities of Daily Living - if a woman can't make family breakfast or even dress herself in the morning, she still needs to feel valuable as a mother and a contributing member of the family
  • Caregiving - mothers are used to caregiving and not used to being on 'the receiving end' - this can make a woman feel particularly like a 'failure' when in reality, she is showing so much strength and dignity that others are inspired and motivated by her actions and demeanor
  • Much too much more to add. This list is incomplete, of course. 
  • What other issues would you like to have me discuss?


Solutions for Pain and More Pain Problems

  • Visit your Primary Health Care Provider - many patients are seeing not only a doctor, but other allied professionals that aren't discussed a lot include the Nurse Practitioner and the Physician Assistant
  • Keep going to doctor after doctor for any complaint that bothers you. Don't give up.
  • I had to go to literally 20 doctors before getting my diagnosis of the Invisible Illness, dysautonomia (dysfunction of the Autonomic Nervous System, ANS, that 'automatically' controls blood pressure and heart rate when standing up) and I fainted when I stood up
  • Specialists - If you doctor or Nurse Practitioner can't 'fix' your problem or seems to clearly have run out of Solutions, then Ask For A Referral to a Pain Management Specialist.


I also tell people to go ahead and go online - to Facebook Groups - discuss your symptoms with other members and see if you aren't able to get a 'working diagnosis' that puts you in a new direction. 

Millions of other women have successfully received the correct diagnosis after going to discussion groups on social media.

This is the basis of Stanford Medicine X: Patient Empowerment for Excellence in HealthCare Delivery.

#StompingOnEggshells - "Raising a Breathing, Walking Nightmare"

 / By Dr Margaret Aranda /



#stompingoneggshells #trinettehackettısmyhero









Breathing Walking Nightmare 





~ By Dr Margaret Aranda 





There was never actually a nightmare

Inside of you little girl with light glare

It was inside someone else you trusted and loved

And it was and is still their only problem, my beloved

For you are strong and brave it is clear, putting yourself as a target so dear





Always know that What resides and lives in you

This is something not of darkness of morning's dew

only when seen from the cast to glisten

At a certain angle of, you see

It took time and correct humidity too to make you shine ever so brightly





Now your rays beam for other little girls to know

That what you have is a gift you bestow

So no one will have to be silent like you used to be

And others will grow from a plant to a tree

Because you took the time to breathe a new fanciful wreath



Of glitter glistening in the snow

So beautiful that this poem could never know

The true meaning of how you were formed to be you

So others could gain is not from their Super-Power stew

Cooked by their mothers on Christmas Eve is too easy



No! They get their Super-Powers from you

Your message rings true and true

Something no one else could ever ever do

Only you, only the Powerful You

Because that is your Mission your Assignment, it's true.











In Trinette Hacket on "Raising a Breathing, Living Nightmare." 

If your teen has problems acting out,

Perhaps that is their language trying to talk.

#StompingOnEggShells - "Depth vs. Dignity?"

 / By Dr. Margaret Aranda /



Rated R for Adult Content: Conversations on Incest



Rated A + for Getting Out the Message For Victims of Incest











Depth and Dignity







Okay so we realized a few things by now

It was difficult cuz no one told us how

No one could see all the hidden things

It's all okay now my family love brings

Pure and true, ringing pink clouds dancing above my head



I used to be filled with dread

Everyone thought I was just a nice kid

Now I know I'm older now 

I didn't know then what I do know

And I've accepted the reality of the spectrum of the dignity in depth



For I have no fear of depth

Depth is where hears lie in wealth

It's a place that few people really truly find

As they sit at their white desks chewing gum to unwind

Oblivious and opinionated they are when they never got blood on their hands



That made me strong and I'm okay with my dread

It told me that something was wrong instead

Of what I was incorrectly told at the time

I know now to pass it on so it can chime

To other girls even grown women too who didn't know it's all okay now



You see the depths are necessary

To know the vastness and have not superiority

But clarity of thought on the other side of dread

With my own dreams and original styles instead

Of living a farce and smiling through tears now I'm strong I'm deep so glad



Because he though I would always be dead

Too far gone to dance away from the dread

But ha! I did it with help from my uncle who told me how to live free

Actually, he showed me that "I" am 'Me'

My own person all grown up inside so tall no tree can break my fall



For I Stomp! And I'm Here! Now! 

And I know how to empower other children how

I'll never live another lie for someone else

Neither will a bzillion other children unsure of themselves

Instead, they'll STOMP! And turn to love's ways for all their entirety of days.





~By Dr Margaret Aranda



Trinette Hacket on "Depth vs. Dignity?" To be sure, she is left with all dignity.

With some left over to share with other children to behold. Healing Power from STOMPING on eggshells and not tip-toeing after them anymore, no...not at all. Period.

#StompingOnEggshells - "An Hour In My Head"

 / By Dr. Margaret Aranda /







An Hour in my Head







I had so much to say for years

But my voice froze into my tears

And then my tears they would not stop

Neverending, neverleavingmealone not one drop

Until somehow my uncle gave me the Power to Tackle and STOMP!



Sure it hurts of course it is okay

There's too many things I want to say

They get all jumbled up in my head of dread

But the message isn't in my tears its in what I said

So just use me as your example of just how strong YoU Can Be!



Because one day when you grow up

You'll realize this was never your cup

It was owned by someone else indeed

Someone who used your love to feed

Himself instead of you but now you know you are not the First!





It happened to me you see

And I'm married now my own family

I don't want you to be like me so so much

That your jumbles get mixed up and such

No! I want to empower you, little girl, to take a big breath and STOMP!



~ by Dr Margaret Aranda





Trinette Hackett on "An Hour in My Head." There's not one single mother in this world who would want or let her daughter to go through this. It's not your fault. Forgive. Go Forward, and STOMP!

Yeah, Girl!! You GO!!



#TrinetteHackettIsMyHero #StompingOnEggShells









take it from me

take it from Trinette

the only way things get better

is to talk about it

get a professional get better



go to God the Father

arms stretched, He is Perfect

there is no other

who created your soul beautiful worketh

so smile my child



you were never alone

I heard all your cries to the bone

yet I knew your life had a mission

a path that wasn't in your vision

it's all bigger than you now, bigger than today



so smile my child

go chase the wind in the wild

things are coming your way

today is brighter than yesterday

you'll see when the little girls come crying to you



you'll know without a doubt

that someone had to have gzillion pouts
