How I beat, well, am beating Rosacea.


I got the curse of the Celts. People as white as me weren’t meant to grow up in sunny South Texas. Mother Nature had assigned us to Northern Europe. Having been exposed to hours of intense sun has allowed me more than one trip to the dermatologist-and the real reason I gave up my previous career as a male model. Rosacea is NOT caused by alcoholism; it’s a genetic disorder common in us honkies. It’s characterized by acne-like appearance in people over 35. As opposed to acne, it is not an infection, but from flushing-an extreme opening of the blood vessels in the head and face that causes redness. It’s worsened by anything that causes an increase in the blood flow to the face and neck (huge list, google it later). Typical acne treatments actually may make it worse due their harshness.

Like other genetic disorders, you can’t cure rosacea, but you can render it mute. I’m not really going to touch on the traditional or allopathic treatment protocols; I’ll leave that to the dermatologists.
A very common trait amongst us is low stomach acid (or high pH-I know, confusing). This makes what we eat harder to digest; which means we’re not getting the nutrition out of our food-just the crap instead. To curb this, I take special enzyme supplements to aide in digestion. Also, no liquids ½ before or 2 hours after eating-it’s a chemical thing. Add water or any other liquid to acid, and you dilute it-plus vast amounts of liquids will push the food through too fast. Plus I threw in a little extra fiber to slow intestinal motility to give the food a little more time to break down.
It’s been said beauty is skin deep, the truth is though, healthy skin comes from the inside out. What you bring in shows; especially in skin disorders-regardless of your acidity. All disease is manifested through inflammation. To fight disease, fight inflammation. The first thing I did was go to on a complete low inflammatory diet void of dairy and gluten after a Novolife cleanse to rid my body of the toxins. I followed this by a month-long, anti-inflammatory detox vitamin regime to get in deep; then continued on with a healthy dosing of multivitamins, omega fatty acids and continuous chiropractic care to promote health.
Not just Rosacea either-any and all inflammatory disorders, skin or not. Including but not limited to more depressing is suffering from many of the numerous diseases and fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, sinusitis, allergies, acne, asthma, digestive conditions, flu symptoms, dysmenorrhea, endometriosis, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, hypertension, depression, insulin resistance syndrome(pre-diabetes), and diabetes and so on (another big list-google it later) are all manage the same way: diet, supplements and plenty of chiropractic care.
Kind of like those old hair club commercials-I’m not just the president, but also a client. If it works for me and 100’s others; it’ll work for you too.Are you or someone you know suffering from an inflammatory disorder? Forward them this email for a complimentary consultation!

Did we tell you massage is coming? Just waiting on Gov O’Malley to sign Holly’s license and drop it in the mail. The first 20 people who respond to this email with the phrase: “massage” will get $10 off their first massage!!!

 



Testimonials

I have been having severe pain since 2014. I’ve had a full battery of x-rays/MRI done to diagnose my condition [as] severe arthritis. After I was prescribed an injection that I was told would take care of everything, the pain was back, worse than before. Dr. Lee reviewed my x-rays and MRI and set up a treatment plan... After the 1st visit my pain has decreased. I can already feel a big difference.

Before coming to Dr. Lee, my ankle pain would wake me up during the night because of its severity. Dr. Lee has helped alleviate the pain in my ankle. By performing specific exercises twice per week, the pain is non-existent!

I have been a patient of Dr.Lee's for about 10 months now. As a 22 year old, I have been suffering from back pain since I was about 13 years old. The pain increased a few years ago and despite physical therapy performed at other facilities, and pain medications from the doctor I was unable to control the level of discomfort. I found Dr. Lee and have been extremely happy with my results.

I came to Dr. Lee with several aches and pains. I was nervous about receiving chiropractic treatment but Dr. Lee eased my concerns by thoroughly making sure that I was a safe candidate for adjustments... After regular adjustments and Physical Therapy, my knee pain is gone, my elbow pain is gone, my ankle and wrist are improving AND I’m reducing the migraines I used to get too!

I began seeing Dr. Lee after noticing severe tenderness and pain in my left hip region... I was lucky to find Dr. Lee when I did, not only did he help me discover that the pain in my hip was actually related to a mass growing uncontrollably but he also gave me the comfort I’d been searching for with chiropractic. I’d recommend Dr. Lee to anyone who wants to be pain-free!

I have had lower back problems for about 35 years. As I aged, they were getting worse. I also noticed I was over weight. I came to Susquehanna Spine & Rehab because Dr. Lee could address both issues as part of a unified plan. The diet regimen, chiropractic, and personalized exercises worked!

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve had pain in my neck and shoulders... Now that I’m an adult, my pain continues, but Dr. Lee is helping me a lot. I have an appointment twice a week, and I can definitely tell a difference. I use pain management along with the tens unit and physical therapy. All three of these services are working great and I’m definitely feeling better.

I have had back problems for years. I have been to other chiropractors I have even gone to medical doctors no one has been able to make it feel any better. Then I found Dr. Lee I have finally found relief. I am feeling so much better after starting care at Susquehanna Spine & Rehab.

I began seeing Dr. Lee because of a shooting pain I developed in my left heel... After a brief examination, Dr. Lee explained to me that my pain was being caused by Plantar Fasciitis... Shortly after Dr. Lee began treating my heel, I noticed that I was experiencing less and less discomfort. In a few short weeks, I was able to continue my exercise routine and enjoy my daily activities pain-free!

When I came to Susquehanna Spine & Rehab I was very skeptical. After only 2 weeks at Susquehanna Spine and Rehab the severe pain in my neck, shoulder and arm had greatly improved … NO MORE PAIN! I can now sleep through the night without waking up in pain! THANK YOU SUSQUEHANNA SPINE & REHAB!!!

My daughter started falling up the stairs at school and having severe knee pain for no apparent reason... Dr. Lee did a thorough exam and walked us through his entire treatment plan. Every appointment was made at a time convenient to my schedule. Heather has made wonderful progress and is now pain-free. Dr. Lee was always available for questions and kept me well informed of her progress.

I have been to too many chiropractors to count in five different states and this is the best chiropractor I have been to so far.
