You Need A New Bra.

Posted by on 7:19 am in Women | 0 comments

I never really know exactly what I am going to blog about until I start the blogging.  When it comes to women’s health issues, there are a number of things that just keep coming up for my patients again and again and again and again and again. Well over 70% of my new female patients are wearing bras just like these bras you see above here that do not support their health.  There.  I said it.  I am done.  Blog post over……  All kidding aside, what is it about these bras that cause so many difficulties?  These types of bras have underwire in them and the metal wire interferes with the energetic flow of the Chinese Acupuncture Meridian System.  As you might be able to see from the image here below, the Stomach, Spleen, Liver, Kidney, Central Vessel, Governing Vessel, Gallbladder, Bladder and other meridians travel right through the area of the bra.  These types of bras constrict the muscles and bones in the area in which the bra is placed and actually cause the bones in the region to become misaligned and subluxated.  These misalignments lead to difficulties with breathing, functioning of all of the organs listed, diaphragm dysfunction, difficulty with walking and nerve tracts going to and from the brain, reflexes such as the tonic labyrinthine reflex, etc…. A bra which supports a woman’s health should have the following basic components: It should NOT have an underwire. The person purchasing the bra should be properly measured / fitted prior to purchasing the bra.  Different women need different sized bras. The bra should be worn on the Loosest fitting / clasp / setting. Ideally, you should have a properly trained health care provider check the bra to make sure that it is a supportive bra for you. Much of this information about bras comes from the work of the late Dr. Victor Frank who began Total Body Modification which is now used world wide to support people with their health. Many chronic patients fail to respond well to care simply because they are wearing a bra that does not support their health. This information about Bras is HUGE!  I hope that you found it helpful.  If you would like to move your health to the next level and have not yet come in to get your bra checked, then feel free to call in to have it checked at (415) 459-4313.  We will be happy to help you. –Dr. ILYA  ...

Underlying Cause of Disease – A Healthcare Provider’s Perspective

Posted by on 5:30 am in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Over the years I have always found it puzzling that so many people suffer from illness when just a few shifts in their daily lifestyle could move them back toward health. You would think I would not be surprised after all of these years, but since illness affects all of my immediate family members as well as most people I come into contact with of all races, shapes, sizes and sexes; it causes me to think about the matter a great deal. My colleagues and myself use terms to describe the confusion people find themselves in when they try to figure out how to return to health. We use the terms umbilical reversal, psychological reversal (like reverse psychology), neurological disorganization, switching, resistance, confusion, reversal, hidden-reversal, etc… The trouble with these terms is that only I, my colleagues and a few psychologists know what we are talking about. I have lost count of how many times I have had new patients with chronic disease such as Hashimotos Thyroiditis, heart disease, cancer, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis, Raynaud’s Disease and others to explain to me that they consider themselves healthy.  These are people who are taking several different medications daily just in order to function from day to day and survive. Let’s make the language for the main cause of sickness and disease far simpler.   The main reason my patients and patients everywhere remain patients and fail to completely resolve their health concerns is that they make terrible choices when it comes to their health. This is a universal truth in the health care profession. If chronic patients did not make terrible choices regarding their health then they never would have become chronic patients with chronic health concerns to begin with. I call this difficulty with making good decisions for one’s health a “deep confusion” of the nervous system. This “deep confusion” is truly deep. It engenders societal patters called memes. A meme is defined as “an element of a culture or system of behavior that may be considered to be passed from one individual to another by nongenetic means, especially imitation.” There are also “familial memes” or “societal memes” whereby habit patterns are passed down from one family to the next or from one society to the next. For example, by and large, heart disease is NOT GENETIC. Heart Disease is caused by a series of habit patterns that are passed down from one generation to the next. The people who come in to the office seeking my services and needing help with their health the most (such as Diabetics, people with Grave’s disease, cancer, diabetes, ulcerative colitis, heart disease, Crohn’s disease, RA, MS, etc…) are often the least likely to receive quality long term care. Many of these patients will talk themselves out of care or even convince themselves of the lack of need for care in just the first few visits. I cannot tell you how many times (big number) I have had patients with these types of diseases and similar ones try to convince me how healthy they are even after we have completed the examination and I had gone over the report of findings. The majority of these diseases – Grave’s, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, Crohn’s disease, and RA are life threatening diseases. In our office most...

Fukushima & the Delusion of Health in America

Posted by on 9:17 am in Uncategorized | 0 comments

By now you have definitely heard about the Fukushima incident that took place in Japan at the beginning of 2011.  You may have heard that the radiation leakage from Fukushima into the ground water that then made it into the Pacific Oceans amounted to thousands of radioactive water going into the sea each day.  Perhaps you even did some of your own research and learned that deep, deep in the Pacific Ocean radiation levels were measured to be millions of times what is allowable by EPA standards.  Yes, that is correct;  not hundreds or thousands of times higher, but greater than 1,000,000.  Perhaps you have a background in science and understand a little bit about the air that became contaminated with radiation that then caused the fallout here in the western part of the United States that led to elderly and babies getting sick.  You may even remember from something you read that there was a 30% increase of new baby deaths in California and surrounding states in the months following the Fukushima incident in 2011.  You may understand a little bit about how radiation gets into the food chain and realize that if the algae in Hawaii, California and throughout the Western part of the continent is contaminated with radiation that then the fish that eat it are also contaminated with radiation.  If you heard about these things then you heard correctly.  Every one of them is true.  And yet, you really see very little about the Fukushima disaster in the news these days.  Japan had contracts in place with the United States that the United States would continue to buy seafood from Japan for a certain period of time regardless of the quality of that seafood.  The United States has kept its promise and continues to purchase and distribute Japanese seafood throughout the country.   I have had a number of patients get sick from the seafood coming out of the North Pacific Ocean.  Many of these patients have what seems to be radiation poisoning.  It has been happening with a number of my colleagues as well.  Some of us have bought Geiger counters and have measured very, very slight increases in radiation levels in the fish.  These increases in radiation are barely detectable.  Radiation exposure is cumulative, meaning, repeated exposure causes the radiation to build up in the body.  A person could be getting sick from radiation poisoning for many years and never even know it.  They could have very few symptoms from being poisoned for years at a time and not even realize it is happening.  Then, one day when the cumulative exposure to radiation in their body reaches a titration point (turning point) they will then have symptoms.  They may end up throwing up fish that was radioactive but thought that the fish was spoiled or had parasites in it.  They may just start feeling nauseous and tired all of the time.  They may end up requiring more sleep.  They may experience itchy skin, constipation, gas, diarrhea or bloating among other digestive upsets.  They may start to have their hair fall out.  It is likely that they would experience cloudy thinking.  They may be cold and feel like they are catching the common cold.  The symptoms of radiation poisoning are very similar to those of heavy metal poisoning. ...

Becoming Certain in an Uncertain World

Posted by on 6:21 am in Uncategorized | 0 comments

You are likely reading this post and asking yourself such questions as “What does this Doctor have to offer me”? Similarly, you might be wondering to yourself, “What is all of this about here and how can I use it to help me with my particular concern?” These are good and important questions. Let’s break things down even more simply and plainly than I already have. The world is changing. Things are uncertain. Most of us in the industrialized world are hurrying to get our kids off to school, get to our job, go to sleep, eat, etc… In fact, I have noticed that I have a number of patients who are so busy that they skip meals regularly. Other people have such dramatic lifestyles that they are traveling around the country or around the world nearly every month for business. There is no end to the challenges that we face today as a society and as a race and as a life form. So, as you ponder how I might be able to help you with some small bit of insight as to why you are here to begin with and what we might be able to do that is different that could give you a better result than you have gotten in the past, it may also be worth while to think of what it was (healthwise) that brought you here to begin with.  What symptoms do you experience?  How do those symptoms affect your life?  What would your life be like if you no longer had those symptoms at all and did not have to worry about them or think about them. Hippocrates: father of modern medicine We are responsible for our health and when things with out health are not going as we would like them to we will often forget that we are responsible for having gotten to where we are now at.  In fact, this is true of nearly every area of life.  If the things my patients were doing when they first came in to see me were working so well, then they probably would not have needed to come in to see me in the first place.  I have recently had a number of patients who were in their early 30s or even younger who have heart disease already.  I do not mean that they are experiencing some mild heart stresses, I mean that they had full blown heart disease.  In fact, one patient was a 5 year old with heart disease.  If you are reading this and this sounds close to home for you then….well, keep reading.  I try to find a way to understand how it could come to be that people who seem to be rather functional in society are able to have developed heart disease at such an extremely young age.  The answer I have come up with is that our society breeds heart disease and other health dilemmas.  Heart disease is the number one cause of death in this country.  So, maybe I should not be so surprised that I would run into a few people who are young who are already experiencing the condition in my practice.  Interestingly, all of my young patients who have the heart disease seem to be in complete denial about it. ...

BUTTER IS BETTER

Posted by on 2:41 pm in blog | 0 comments

 Many people in our society are under the impression that butter is not good for you or that it will make you fat and have heart disease. Nothing could be further from the truth. The majority of the information in this newsletter is coming from the Weston Price Foundation.   Here are some reasons why BUTTER IS BETTER! VITAMINS:  Butter is a rich source of easily absorbed vitamin A, needed for a wide range of functions, from maintaining good vision to keeping the endocrine system in top shape.  butter also contains all of the other fat-soluble vitamins (D, E and K2), which are often lacking in the modern industrial diet. MINERALS:  Butter is rich in important trace minerals, including manganese, chromium, zinc, copper and selenium (a powerful antioxidant).  Ounce for ounce, butter provides more selenium per gram than wheat germ or herring.  Butter is also an excellent source of iodine. Essential Fatty Acids FATTY ACIDS:  butter provides appreciable amounts of short and medium-chain fatty acids, which support immune function, boost metabolism and have anti-microbial properties; that is, they fight against pathogenic micro-organisms in the intestinal tract.  Butter also provides the perfect balance of omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids.  Arachidonic acid in butter is important for brain function and prostaglandin balance. CLA: When butter comes from cows eating green grass, it contains high levels of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a compound that gives excellent protection against cancer and also helps the body build muscle rather than store fat. GLYCOSPINGOLIPIDS: These are a special category of fatty acids that protect against gastrointestinal infections, especially in the very young and the elderly.  Children given reduced fat milks have higher rates of diarrhea than those who drink whole milk. CHOLESTEROL:  Despite all of the misinformation you may have heard, cholesterol is needed to maintain intestinal health and for brain and nervous system development in the young. WULZEN FACTOR:  A hormone-like substance that prevents arthritis and joint stiffness, ensuring that calcium in the body is put into the bones rather than the joints and other tissues.  The Wulzen factor is present only in raw butter and cream; it is destroyed by pasteurization.  The Wulzen Factor is also sometimes referred to the anti-stiffness factor as it may help with arthritic conditions.  It has been shown to protect against calcification of the joints. Butter contains many nutrients that protect against heart disease including vitamins A, D, and E, lecithin, iodine and selenium.  A Medical Research Council Survey showed that men eating butter ran half the risk of developing heart disease as those using margarine. CANCER: The short- and medium-chain fatty acids in butter have strong anti-tumor effects.  CLA in butter from grassfed cows also gives excellent protection a ARTHRITIS:  The Wulzen or “anti-stiffness” factor in raw butter protects against calcification of the joints as well as hardening of the arteries, cataracts and calcification of the pineal gland.  Calves fed pasteurized milk or skim milk develop joint stiffness and do not thrive.  Their symptoms are reversed when raw butterfat is added to their diet.gainst...

FAQ’S CONTINUED …

Posted by on 2:20 pm in blog | 0 comments

7. What are the benefits of Dr. Ilya’s holistic therapies? Answer The benefits of Dr. Ilya’s holistic therapies are infinite.  Please visit the testimonials page and learn about all of the different benefits that patients have received from Dr. Ilya’s therapies. Homeopathy, herbs, nutrition, acupuncture, chiropractic, psychotherapy and other emotional therapies, ancient healing modalities, naturopathy, and color and sound therapy have been used for countless ages.  There are thousands and thousands of studies and case studies of people who have had life-changing benefits from these types of therapies.  Dr. Ilya’s favorite healers of all time are John of God, Royal Rife, and Hocksey of Texas.  These are some of the great visionaries of our modern time who PROVED that cancer should not worry people or be a concern.  They revolutionized health care and laid a foundation for future great thinkers. Dr. Ilya’s therapies are designed to raise people’s consciousness.  As a result of these therapies, people live longer, get sick less often, have more energy, better relationships, improved energy and stamina, and better sex lives.  People who are overweight lose weight.  People who are underweight gain weight.  People’s health improves when they receive Dr. Ilya’s therapies.  People get more out of life when they are healthier, happier, and have more energy.  Dr. Ilya has often been heard to say that he helps most people with most health challenges most of the time and mostly quickly. 8. What is Applied Kinesiology (AK)? Answer In its purest form, kinesiology is the study of muscles and movement.  When used in a clinical setting, it becomes an evaluation and treatment tool for restoring overall health and balance to the body. Its beginnings originated in the 1960s as a clinical science from work performed by Dr. George Goodheart.  Over time, many branches have developed with different specialties.  To date, there are around eighty different types of kinesiology.  Many colleges offer kinesiology degrees that are more focused on sports physiology.  This is different from the clinical use of kinesiology known as Applied Kinesiology. Applied Kinesiologists come from all different backgrounds of health care and must be licensed to diagnose diseases.  Some examples of professions that have Applied Kinesiologists are: medical doctors, chiropractors, naturopathic doctors, acupuncturists, homeopaths, physiatrists, osteopathic doctors, podiatrists, etc.  Applied Kinesiology takes from all aspects of health care and healing.  It is an open-ended area of study and a system used for diagnosing, treating and helping people to heal and reach a higher level of health and wellness. AK is a diagnostic based value system that is currently taught all over the United States and in other industrialized nations through the International College of Applied Kinesiology.  The two main divisions of this college are the ICAK USA and the ICAK Europe.  There are numerous Applied Kinesiologists in Canada and Australia. The International College of Applied Kinesiology-U.S.A. provides a clinical and academic arena for investigating, substantiating, and propagating AK findings and concepts pertinent to the relationships between structural, chemical, and mental factors in health and disease and the relationship between structural faults and the disruption of homeostasis exhibited in functional illness. AK is an interdisciplinary approach to health care which draws together the core elements of the complementary therapies, creating a more unified approach to the diagnosis and treatment of functional illness.  AK uses functional assessment...

MALE MENOPAUSE

Posted by on 2:18 pm in blog | 0 comments

               “Andropause” is what doctors and physiologists call male menopause.  Menopause and menopausal symptoms are not just experiences that women have; men have them also.  For men, the symptoms of Andropause are quite different than the symptoms of Menopause.                Sally and Jeff are a Caucasian married couple who live in Marin County, CA.  Sally is 48 years old and her husband Jeff is 56 years old.  They have been married for 19 years and during the first 13 years of their marriage everything had gone great.  They have 2 children, Jared and Lisa, Jared is a 6 year old boy and Lisa is a 9 year old girl.  Sally is upset because the marriage has not been going as well during the last 5 or 6 years or so.  It seems that Jeff just isn’t willing to do his fair share in helping with the kids and he has even missed their daughter Lisa’s recent performance in the school play.  Both Sally and Jeff make equal amounts of money at their careers.  It is not unusual for Jeff to be found at the local bar having a drink or two after work.  On weekends, Jeff often likes to just sit and watch football on T.V. with a couple of friends and does not really want to go anywhere.  He has been irritable and depressed, discouraged and pessimistic for more than a year now.  He seems to have fewer friends.  He has gained 50 pounds of body weight in the last couple of years, was demoted at his work 2 years ago due to lack of productivity, and just doesn’t seem to care about things as much as he used to.  What is even worse is that they used to occasionally go for hikes or to the nearby gym, but Jeff doesn’t even seem to want to do any of those activities any more.  He seems tired all of the time.  When Sally discussed this with some of her girlfriends they all shared with her that their husbands are the same way and that she doesn’t have anything to worry about.  In fact, one of her friends told her that she was lucky, because her husband lost his job and was now looking for work.  What also seems odd to Sally is that Jeff doesn’t seem to think as clearly and quickly as he used to.  Jeff just seems lazy.  What else has been upsetting Sally is that Jeff has not been able to have the same kind of erections during the last 5 or 6 years and so their lovemaking has become incredibly infrequent.  In fact, they may only have sex once every couple of months and when they do have sex it is usually a big disappointment for Sally as Jeff has premature orgasms that he never had during their first 13 years of marriage.  Sally has noticed other things about Jeff that have changed as well.  To top it off, he seems to be less manly, has less body hair, seems to have thinner skin which is dry and a little bit flakey, and he doesn’t sleep very well at night.  In fact, a couple times a week Jeff might wake up 4 or more times a night to go...

THE COLD BOLD TRUTH

Posted by on 2:16 pm in blog | 0 comments

This was Written a Year ago by Dr. Ilya and Presented at two Separate Triad Of Health 2 Hour Introductions. The medical industry is so lost that they actually prescribe medication for nutritional deficiencies and they are so confused that they have convinced themselves that people suffer from drug deficiencies rather than nutritional deficiencies.  Is anyone in the audience deficient of aspirin?  Is anyone here deficient in prozac?  Is anyone here deficient in Thyroid medication or Thyroid hormone? It has gotten so bad that when people are not feeling well and go to see their medical doctor for help, the medical profession has made up names for how the person feels and they call these names diseases like Hashimotos or Diabetes or Lupus or Fibromyalgia.  Then, instead of treating the cause of the disease, they simply have spent billions of dollars on developing drugs that relieve the immediate symptoms but that allow the disease to fester. Can you imagine?  So, a person with a thyroid problem goes to their medical doctor.  The medical doctor has absolutely no idea what is going on so they do a bunch of laboratory tests and discover that the person’s thyroid hormones are very low.  Because they do not have the skill or proper clinical training to diagnose what is the imbalance in the person that has caused these thyroid hormone levels to be low, they simply supply the person with thyroid hormones.  Now their thyroid hormones are up again, but the cause of the problem has not changed a bit.  The structural cause of the problem is still there.  The chemical cause of the problem is still there.  And the emotional cause of the problem is still there.  Don’t people make their own thyroid hormones?  If we make our own thyroid hormones then wouldn’t it make sense to diagnose why a person is not making enough thyroid hormone and then learn the skills and therapies needed to improve that person’s thyroid hormone production?  This is unheard of in western medicine.  In western medicine there are only 3 therapies: drugs, radiation and surgery.  So, if you are not interested in receiving a surgery or being given drugs or being irradiated (the same thing that caused people in World War II to die after the atomic bomb was used on civilians such as in Hiroshima), then there really is no other therapy that they have available.  Does this seem strange to you? It has gotten so bad that they just ignore all of the nutritional deficiencies that their patients suffer from while supplying them with medications that are toxic that often create the same symptoms that the patient is wanting to rid themselves of.  For example, cancer is treated with chemotherapy.  Cancer is an immune system disease that is often caused by excess toxicity in the body.  Chemotherapeutic agents are very toxic, they weaken the immune system and cause the body to become more toxic.  Therefore, these chemotherapeutic agents actually CONTRIBUTE to the cause of cancer.  This is NOT my opinion.  This has been well researched and well documented.  Medications are made in laboratories and are synthetic and are toxic, how can they provide a person with health? 4.7 Billion dollars was spent during the last 12 months on marketing anti-depressants.  That is right – billion...

KNOW THE TRUTH AND IT SHALL SET YOU FREE

Posted by on 2:14 pm in blog | 0 comments

WHEN COMMON SENSE BECOMES UNCOMMON This post was sent out as a newsletter,  the first to be sent out in the last 5 months. I don’t know where the time has gone.  Plus, I broke my promise.  I had promised in the last newsletter to do a newsletter twice a month and it never happened.  There have been a lot of changes at the Triad Of Health Family Wellness Clinic.  Things look the same but they are completely different.  There is a new copy machine, some new plants, new restrooms and new roof.  We now carry an entire line of non-toxic skin care, body care, hair care, toothpaste and sunscreen.  We are constantly striving to help you, your friends, and the people of this community and surrounding communities to be healthier.  It has been difficult for me to see patients over the years who have been poisoning themselves and don’t even know it.  This is why we now have these personal care products in the office. One of our most amazing developments is in the area of Energy Medicine.Previously, one of my mentors instructed me to study classical homeopathy and to purchase an entire pharmacy.  While I hesitated at first, I finally decided to purchase the $8,000 kit.  While it has not proved very profitable, it has helped my patients immensely.  Some people had skin conditions vanish after one treatment.  Urinary Tract Infections now would magically disappear at the end of a single treatment!  People who had suffered from poor digestion were nearly completely better after being treated only once and only sometimes a second treatment would be needed.  Several months ago I was told to get a kit that contains all of the elements known (except for those which are radioactive.)  This was also a considerable added expense.  However, now 90% of patients no longer need any homeopathy at all as this element kit addresses the underlying “causes” of the need for homeopathy. This saves every patient an average of about $40 to $50 per visit.   The element kit addresses the energetic imbalances that homeopathy treats on a vibrational level. Allow me to share with you the experience of one patient in particular.  She had not been sleeping in months.  After only one treatment using the element kit and other total kinesiology therapies, she was able to sleep soundly throughout the night.  She had been to numerous doctors who had been trying to help her with her sleep using numerous different therapies.  She had been in several different sleep studies and had had numerous laboratory analysis done.  None of those things had helped much.  Ambien had probably been the most helpful thing.  Ambien is toxic and causes damage to the brain and will often throw off a person’s balance and equilibrium and cause them to have foggy thinking – not such good side effects. At the Triad Of Health we are always on the cutting edge.  The only really huge challenge is that there are so many health care providers out there doing so many different things that people become confused.  They don’t know where to turn.  They don’t know what to do.  I have found that more than 50% of my patients actually choose their health care provider based on whether or not they like their mannerisms and personality and not based...
