ABOUT ME

This is custom heading element

Hello everyone! My name is Dr. Ryan Bland, and I wanted to take some time to reintroduce myself. As a second generation Chiropractor and Applied Kinesiologist, I truly believe that I was put on this earth with the express purpose of helping everyone become the best version possible of themselves.

Using Chiropractic Adjustments, Clinical Nutrition, Applied Kinesiology, Supplementation, and a multitude of other modalities that are always expanding, I focus on a holistic approach that is delicate and kind to the human condition making everlasting change a possibility.

I’m here for any patient who needs an advocate, or a voice. Though most of my patients are what would normally be considered “complex”, I don’t see it this way. We’re all complex organisms made up of 70 trillion cells, and no two people are the same, so why would their treatments be?

There are so many stressors that we encounter on a daily basis, from the thoughts we experience, the toxins we encounter, or the traumas we experience and the weight of these stressors can have huge impacts on our overall wellbeing.

My greatest passion lies with the care of my patients. Being able to touch the lives of so many people brings me fulfillment beyond belief, and it’s my goal to empower as many people as possible to believe in the incredible power our bodies possess, and together we can change history by spreading this message throughout the universe.

Life is meant to be lived naturally, and let us unlock our potential together! Call 253-302-3131 or visit www.DrRyanBland.com to schedule your appointment or free consultation today.

Hello, I’m Dr. Ryan Bland! I am a second-generation Chiropractor and Applied Kinesiologist practicing in the Tacoma/Seattle WA area, but see patients all across the US and internationally through telehealth and phone sessions. I treat patients who are chronically ill with fatigue, intestinal issues, depression, autoimmune conditions, lyme, candida, topical steroid withdrawal, eczema, and many more.

I believe in order to obtain optimum health, we must first find the root of the problem and provide the right conditions for the body and soul to thrive. My goal is to help each individual restore their health, maximize their potential, and to educate on how to reclaim their lives. Coming from a large chiropractic family in New York City, New York allowed me to familiarize myself and become mindful of the diversity of conditions and remedies tailored specifically to each patient through holistic measures.

Our bodies are easily overloaded in today’s society from physical, mental, and chemical stressors. Any stress prevents our bodies from reaching their full potential. I utilize Applied Kinesiology, Chiropractic, and Functional Medicine, in conjunction with additional techniques that are dependent on ones biochemistry to identify the root of a patient’s issues and help them reach their full potential.

If you have any questions about the work we do and would like to know more, please schedule a free 15-minute in-office or phone consultation. Appointments may be scheduled by calling 253-302-3131 or visiting www.DrRyanBland.com.

Unlocking Your Inner Healing Potential. 🔐

More patients than EVER are opting to choose more natural healthcare treatments! People are educating themselves and opposing the immediate decision to involve strong medications and invasive surgeries. Medical errors are the THIRD leading cause of death in America. The modern medical system is clearly designed for emergencies and those who feel it is lacking are probably on to something! In holistic medicine, the body is being treated as a whole, addressing the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects all at the same time.

Holistic medicine seeks to determine the underlying causes of an illness or symptom and comes up with a plan of action to help bring the whole body to a place of wellness and freedom from unwanted negative symptoms.

It is the belief in holistic medicine that the bond between healer and patient is only effective if both partners embrace the relationship. This means, involving you in every step of your care. By informing you of the changes to expect, and guiding you through the work you need to accomplish on your own, YOU are an active participant in your health care.

Our bodies are natural, self-healing organisms, possessing the ability to heal without drugs or surgery. You may ask, if your body has this ability to heal, why doesn’t it? The answer is, that sometimes we just don’t give our body the chance to heal on it’s own! Most patients who develop health challenges look for a pill or a remedy to relieve their discomfort, instead of locating the cause of the problem and removing it. By removing the actual cause, it allows the body the incredible opportunity to heal itself.

If you’ve never experienced this powerful form of healing before, consider scheduling a visit to our office right away. You will be rewarded with a renewed health and vitality, freedom from negative symptoms, and a have a second outlook on health and wellness.

Colic, Fussy Babies, and Digestion

Colic is defined as the frequent, prolonged, and intense periods of significant distress in an otherwise healthy infant. The symptoms of colic can range from mild to extremely distressing, for both the infant and the parents! These symptoms can lead to anxiety, poor quality of life, developmental delays, as well as short and long-term health consequences.

Fortunately, Chiropractic care has been found to have some of the best results in dealing with infants with colic. 94% of colicky babies showed significant improvement with chiropractic adjustments.

Any subluxation, allergy, food intolerance, toxin, or disturbance in the system can adversely affect functioning and result in discomfort, gas or other colic symptoms. Chiropractic is a gentle, non-invasive, holistic option for treating infants with colic and works to help restore normal function to the child’s digestive tract, nervous system, and other related organs to help bring restore optimal functioning.

The Healing Crisis

The healing crisis, also known as the Herxheimer Reaction, is a temporary increase in discomfort during the body’s process of detoxification. This occurs when internal toxins and wastes are being released faster than the body can eliminate them. This elimination is taking place to set the stage for the regeneration of damaged tissues,
clogged lymph, and improved vitality.

We all have different reactions to different levels of detoxification, but it is not uncommon for an individual to start a program to feel better and then a healing crisis comes along. Many people start care plans and supplements one at a time and after a few days, they develop symptoms such as aches, brain fog, fatigue, headaches, nausea, digestive upset, chills, sweats, insomnia, anxiety, and many more. Most people attribute these symptoms to supplements and/or a new elimination diet. However, we forget that the improved functions of elimination will also strain the resources of other pathways in the body, especially if there are certain systems of the body that were
not working up to par in the first place.

The process of detoxification should continue, and most of the time when these reactions occur I keep a close watch on the patient and modify the care plan if the experience they are having is too extreme. At this time we also would address any systems or pathways that need extra nutrients to support their functions to help support the body during this process. Pulling metals, viruses, bacteria, parasites, and many other stealth pathogens causes intense nutrient depletion in some cases. It is not about how much of a pathogen you have, it is about how reactive to it you are and the amount of energy your body will expend expelling these toxins.

To further clarify, the elimination of symptoms does not mean the elimination of the disease. In fact, a lot of the time symptoms are often mistaken for the disease but are actually the body’s attempt to cleanse itself. These healing crises we experience are the body’s systems acting together to eliminate waste products and sets the stage for the regeneration of our cells.

From day-to-day, there are large amounts of pathogens and toxins that are accumulated in our bodies. Disease and symptoms occur when cells are not functioning at 100%. Treating disease by trying to only
address symptoms will only suppress the body’s natural ability to heal itself. By modifying our internal terrain with the process with a biochemically unique detox plan each patient decrease our chances of inflammation, weakened immune systems while creating new cells for a healthy space in our physical body so we can conduct life with a pure being.

Generally, a healing crisis will only take about three days but depending on the patient it could last for a week or more. During this
time the body needs a lot of time to regain the energy it is losing. At this point, I ask my patients to look deeper into what they are experiencing, so we can learn and grow from the pain, which is the
body expressing itself in a physical language.

Chiropractic Adjustment for Adults

Thoughts, traumas, and toxins all plague us in the form of stress. Our rate of recovery needs to exceed our level of stress in order to prevent chronic diseases and injuries! We must bring balance into our lives, and at a time like this, it is the most important thing we can do.

Utilizing Applied Kinesiology muscle testing, as well as Chiropractic, Clinical Nutrition, Functional Medicine, and a multitude of other modalities, I uncover the cause of injury or disease rather than chasing symptoms.

My goal is to help each individual restore their health, maximize their potential, and to educate on how to reclaim their lives.

Chiropractic Adjustments for Children

Some adults may wonder why more and more children are starting to see chiropractors, and the answer is simple: as the tree grows crooked, so do the branches. A straight spine is a healthy spine! the spine house has the nervous system and it is imperative for it to be free of nervous system interference.

Your nervous system is the regulator of every other system in the body. It regulates blood flow, brain function, bone growth, and overall makes sure that the growing body is healthy and running optimally.

We all experience thoughts, traumas, and toxins and I consider these the three main stressors that we all experience in this life whether we are an adult or a child.

Being a father myself I notice a huge difference when my son gets regular care, takes his vitamins, and eats the right foods for him. Working with pediatric patients is so rewarding because they are so quick to respond positively to care.

From kids with migraines to ADHD, allergies, developmental disorders, and many more we specialize in restoring optimal function to the bearers of the future.

When I was born my father adjusted me at 5 minutes old and since then I don’t remember a week when I didn’t get adjusted. I have personally seen how amazing chiropractic and holistic care has elevated the quality of my life!

In our office, we’re focused on using gentle, holistic therapies including Chiropractic, Applied Kinesiology, Functional Medicine, Clinical Nutrition, and many other modalities to help correct issues before children fully develop, and that that work with the body’s own innate intelligence and ability to heal itself.

Healing Holistically ❤️

Like many other practitioners I have met, I discovered my passion for helping people through being a patient myself. Through holistic health, I began a passionate journey of healing, which is why I’m always chasing greatness. I will begin to open up by sharing my journey with others who may need to hear my message of hope and healing.

Health is about the balance of mind, body, and spirit. When one of these areas is out of balance, the other areas respond in a way to try and attempt to balance your whole self. In my practice, we utilize holistic measures to work to bring balance to the body.

To practice holistically means to treat proactively without the use of drugs and surgery, and view each patient as a unique idividual. The human body is made up of interdependent parts, and if one part of the body is not working correctly, the whole body will not work together in harmony. In most cases 95% of the time our health can be mitigated with proactive holistic measures and for the other 5% of the time, there’s nothing wrong with receiving medical care. Medical care has most definitely saved my life but many of us see its shortfalls.

It’s up to us to take our health proactively, and there’s so much power we can harness getting the proper holistic care for your body. Each patient is a unique individual, and although two patients may often present with similar symptoms, the root cause may be entirely different. This is why it’s so important to work with a holistic practitioner who is able to help you set your goals, and do the work to achieve them.

Join me on this journey and together we can change the world!

The body has an incredible ability to help heal itself, and it’s up to us to provide our bodies with the proper environment to thrive.

The Power that Makes the Body Heals the Body!

“While other professions are concerned with changing the environment to suit the weakened body, chiropractic is concerned with strengthening the body to suit the environment.” – BJ Palmer

The power that makes our body contains the incredible potential to heal the body, the key is to provide the body with the proper circumstances to flourish. The path to true health lies in your immune system, and it’s importance can not be undersold.

While you make decisions for your health and future, consider does this support or suppress my body’s natural function? A lot of what we’ve conventionally been taught to stay healthy actually suppress the immune system. A strong immune system means the ability to fight off illnesses and stay healthy.

As we continue on this rollercoaster of cases, the cries of sickness grow louder. Cold and flu season can already be devastating without the added effects of the pandemic, and germs are just looking for a susceptible victim. The good news is, there’s ways we can boost our immune to help prevent, or ward off illness.

In our office, we develop individualized treatment plans to help you reach optimal levels of health and wellness. Call 253-302-3131 or visit www.DrRyanBland.com to schedule your in-office or Telehealth appointment today.

Chiropractic Care Can Help Everyone!

Chiropractic is a system of care that’s focused on the structure of the body, particularly the spine. The alignment of the spine affects the nervous system greatly. The spine is home to the spinal cord, and nerves extend from the brain to the body and back, so this flow must be allowed to continue without inhibition to help carry messages to the body to function properly. Chiropractors utilize treatments, including manipulation, physical therapy modalities, patient education, and nutrition and rehabilitation exercises to help address each person’s unique situation.

Although many people visit the chiropractor and have experienced the benefits, there is still a lot of misconceptions when it comes to Chiropractic. Many people visit a chiropractor because they are in pain, have poor posture, or are seeking injury prevention or pain relief, but the benefits of chiropractic span far beyond just pain relief. Chiropractic care can improve on a variety of conditions and disorders from chronic migraines to foot or leg pain.

Regular visits to a chiropractor help ensure the continued health of your musculoskeletal system, helps prevent future aches and pains, helps protect and enhance the communication pathways of the spinal cord and nerve roots, as well as helps safely manage pain and a wide range of conditions without the use of drugs.

On-going chiropractic care helps keep your spine aligned, and a spine that is aligned is stronger and more supported, which can lead to a decrease in the risk of injury. When your body is balanced, it lessens your risk of injuring yourself, incurring problems, or relapsing on old issues. And after a while, you’ll notice when your body needs an adjustment! Just as you take your car in for regular tune-ups, your body needs it too!

TMJ: What Is It And How Can We Help

When most people think of chiropractors, they often think of back, neck or spine pain. One place you may not expect chiropractic to help with is pain in the jaw, but your chiropractor may be able to relieve this pain, specifically pain in the Temporomandibular Joint, or TMJ.

TMJ is the term for the paired joints between the upper and lower jaws, as well as the term generally used to describe pain or dysfunction in these same joints.

Symptoms of TMJ include pain in or around the ear, headaches, neck pain, jaw pain and soreness, difficulty opening or closing the mouth, popping or clicking noises when opening the mouth, jaw stiffness, tinnitus, dizziness, and sensitive teeth.

TMJ is very common, and the causes can be from injury or trauma to the jaw, teeth grinding, nail biting, degenerative joint diseases like arthritis, stress or emotional overload, infections and autoimmune disorders. In some cases, misalignment of the jaw is the result of improper posture or back problems.

The pain from TMJ can sometimes grow to intolerable levels and the condition can truly be debilitating and significantly lower your quality of life. The good news is, we’re here to help. Call 253-302-3131 or visit www.DrRyanBland.com to schedule your appointment today.

Restoring Homeostasis in the Body

The body is a self-healing organism that is regulated by the nervous system. This system is the communication center for the body, and allows the body to register what is wrong and then provide solutions to repair the area of malfunction. This process is known as homeostasis.

Sometimes, the nervous system has difficulty correcting the situation and fails to return the body to it’s normal state, which causes symptoms to arise in the body.

Often times, when we begin to experience symptoms of discomfort, we use medications as a band-aid solution, to just mask the problems but not solve the underlying issues.

Since the nervous system is in direct communication with the organ systems, Applied Kinesiology muscle testing helps locate where in the body there are disturbances occurring, and through individualized nutritional suggestions, supplementation, and lifestyle changes, we are able to restore communication to the body’s systems.

Holistic Healthcare for Children

As a parent, I know how difficult it is to see your child struggling and not know how to help them. Just as adults are impacted by their environment around them, so too are young children, including while still in the womb.

Our children today face stressors unlike any other generation. Social media, processed foods, increasing environmental toxins, and changing genetics demand a new approach to pediatric care. Sensory and nervous
system disorders are increasingly more common and the conventional approach to pediatrics often does not provide the answers.

I’ve had the honor of working with families that have children struggling with a wide range of physical and emotional challenges, including academic troubles, anxiety, attention disorders, erratic moods, physical pain, and withdrawn behavior.

I know many parents are looking for options that don’t include medicating their children, and the good news is there are answers!

The best way to get a child healthy, and keep them that way, is to consider every aspect of their lifestyle – diet, environment, exercise, stress, etc.

By taking a holistic approach to health, we are able to consider your child’s entire picture of health, and use the best and most appropriate options for healing. It is a process of strengthening
every system of the mind and body, and allowing your child’s natural healing potential to flourish.

Applied Kinesiology, Functional Medicine, and Chiropractic can have
serious benefits for your child’s wellbeing, development, and health
in so many positive ways.

Applied Kinesiology and Functional Medicine

Applied Kinesiology is a diagnostic system that evaluates the structural, chemical, and emotional aspects of health using manual muscle testing, in combination with other methods of diagnosis, to evaluate the nervous system’s response to sensory inputs and challenges. Using muscle function, we’re able to identify underlying causes of pain, weakness, and other health challenges.

Functional medicine is a modern approach to health care that utilizes a systems-oriented, patient-centered approach to identify the patient as a whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms or isolated body parts. In functional medicine, lab tests are utilized to help pinpoint specific problems. Often, small imbalances or dysfunctions build up in the body and may surface as various symptoms, such as general fatigue or poor health, or as an illness or symptom that won’t go away with typical treatments. The specific information provided by lab tests allows practitioners to get a big picture of your body’s ecosystem, and aims to prevent disease before it happens by addressing imbalances.

By using Applied Kinesiology and Functional medicine in conjunction, we are able to find the interconnections among the internal organ systems, body chemistry, musculoskeletal pain and imbalance, diet, toxic exposures, stress, injuries and other factors. We then do our best to help correct these causes wherever possible.

In our office, we develop individualized plans to help restore each patient to their optimal health and maintain well being throughout their lives. Call 253-302-3131 or visit www.DrRyanBland.com to schedule your in-office or tele-health appointment today!

ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL

Today, I had a lot on my mind, and wanted to touch on some views I have about our society’s approach to health and wellness.

Wellness is so important. Whether you believe that disease is caused by poor health, or that poor health is caused by disease, doing anything and everything to maintain your wellness should be your top priority, which includes eating a proper diet, getting plenty of exercise, as well as having regular meetings with healthcare professionals.

There are so many options out there, and it’s important to find a plan that fits your biochemistry. Often we succomb to convenience, relying on quick fixes like crash diets and random supplements and snake oils from unlicensed professionals. The mindset is it’s easier to get quick advice online and diagnose and treat yourself than actually go to the doctor. In the long run I see these people having to do the MOST work! Now things have changed with so many practitioners doing Telehealth. The answer is always within you and is achieved with hard work and sticking to your goals!

The road to recovery is unfortunately a windy road and that is why you deserve the highest level of care, and to feel confident in your body’s ability to care for you. In order to bring lasting vitality to our bodies, all of your systems must be working optimally, and working together!

Applied Kinesiology and Functional Medicine: The Road Back to Balance

I was so grateful for the opportunity to join Marlene’s Market & Deli Tacoma (facebook.com/MMDTacoma) for a Facebook Live today. Thoughts, traumas, and toxins all plague us in the form of stress. Our rate of recovery needs to exceed our level of stress in order to prevent chronic diseases and injuries! We must bring balance into our lives, and at a time like this, it is the most important thing we can do. Utilizing Applied Kinesiology muscle testing, as well as functional medicine, I uncover the cause of injury or disease rather than chasing symptoms. From food allergies to forceful impacts, I will be discussing the nature of inflammation, the immune system, and how we can be proactive in taking care of our amazing human bodies so we can do all the amazing things we love!

Colic, Fussy Babies, and Digestion

Colic is defined as the frequent, prolonged, and intense periods of significant distress in an otherwise healthy infant. The symptoms of colic can range from mild to extremely distressing, for both the infant and the parents! These symptoms can lead to anxiety, poor quality of life, developmental delays, as well as short and long-term health consequences.

Fortunately, Chiropractic care has been found to have some of the best results in dealing with infants with colic. 94% of colicky babies showed significant improvement with chiropractic adjustments.

Any subluxation, allergy, food intolerance, toxin, or disturbance in the system can adversely affect functioning and result in discomfort, gas or other colic symptoms. Chiropractic is a gentle, non-invasive, holistic option for treating infants with colic and works to help restore normal function to the child’s digestive tract, nervous system, and other related organs to help bring restore optimal functioning.

Why is Eating Healthy SO Expensive?!

Convenience culture is running rampant and it’s potential danger is affecting everyone’s health. In today’s world, it’s easy to get caught up in convenience and a little preparation and guidance can go a long way.

With more quick food alternatives today than ever before, including take out, fast food, and pre-made meals, it’s not hard to get caught up in the cycle of just “grabbing a quick bite.” Unfortunately, these foods are often high in fat, sugar, chemicals, preservatives and calories, all of which are harmful to the human condition.

It’s a common belief that eating healthy is just TOO expensive. Contrary to this belief, eating healthy does not have to break the bank. It is your perception of what is important that controls this narrative, and what could be more important than your health and wellness? What costs the most is becoming sick, so we should view eating healthy an investment we are making in real-time everyday for a brighter future.

Fruits and vegetables should make up most of your diet while you are balancing proteins, fats and carbohydrates in your meals, and sparing processed foods. There are many tricks and tools out there to help making eating healthy extremely cost effective. This is where I come in! I am always keeping up on the latest information concerning the most recent information on clinical nutrition. I practice what I preach and have experienced living this lifestyle and share all of my tricks and tips with my patients from meals plans to eliminations diets to make healthy eating extremely easy and affordable.

Getting started on the journey of eating healthy can be hard, but I’m here to help. Call 253-302-3131 or visit www.DrRyanBland.com to schedule your appointment today.

No Shoes, No Problem!

What’s one of the FIRST things you do after you get home from a long day out? If you’re like most people, YOU take off your shoes and socks! There’s something about being barefoot that brings us back to a simpler, more relaxed time like playing in the grass as a kid, or taking a stroll by the ocean. 🚶

Each foot is made up of 26 bones, 30 joints and more than 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments, all of which work together to provide support, balance and mobility. 🦶

The benefits of going barefoot are abundant! They include better control of your foots position, improved spacial awareness, maintaining strength, stability and range of motion, better performance, less ankle strains, less lower back problems, and a more natural motion and foot awareness. Going barefoot and implementing zero drop minimal shoes in your life can also lead to improved circulation, an increase in endurance, and longer lasting strength in the legs and feet. As a chiropractor I have seen this practice help the recovery of low back pain time and time again.

Being barefoot whenever possible is best, but when that’s not an option there’s some great barefoot/minimal shoes that provide similar benefits. 👟

I would like to thank @theurbanbarefoot for his motivation and innovation in the barefoot community, and for spreading such a positive message! 💙

If you have concerns about foot alignment and how this may be impacting your spine, call 253-302-3131 or visit www.DrRyanBland.com to schedule your appointment today!

A New Years Detox & Why It’s Important!

Are you ready to start the new year clearer, brighter, and lighter?

This past year we have all had to deal with a whole new set of thoughts, traumas, and toxins impacting our body. Our bodies can become imbalanced from toxins found in what we eat, drink and that are present in our environment. We need to eliminate, prevent, or adapt to the stressors we encounter in our lives if we want our bodies to be healthy.

Some signs and symptoms of toxin exposure are allergies, asthma, sleeping problems, digestive problems, weight gain and an inability to lose weight, brain fog, low libido, fatigue, high blood pressure, mood disorders, and many more. Toxicity often lies at the root of many chronic illnesses. To avoid the damage toxins can cause, it’s extremely important you take actions to help support a healthy immune system. Since toxins can hinder your body’s abilities, it sometimes needs help. One way to do this is to detox and cleanse your system.

In our office, we use many different tools for nutritional wellness, but one of the most popular, and effective, is the Purification Program by @StandardProcess. This program is not just a cleanse diet, but rather a structured program that is specifically tailored to you and your biochemistry to help you meet and exceed your health and wellness goals.

If you are tired of feeling tired, and sick of feeling sick, it is time to reach out and start your cleanse today. I will be starting my next Purification Program for the new year, and I will be running an accountability group for those who wish to join me. All who wish to join will receive a personalized nutrition plan prior to beginning, and this may be adjusted as the program continues.

Order your kit today by emailing Dr.RyanBland@gmail.com, call 253-302-3131 or visit www.DrRyanBland.com to schedule your appointment today.

Cardiovascular Health

It is estimated by the CDC that approximately 30% of Americans have excess levels of LDL, or the harmful type of cholesterol. Research has shown that those who suffer from high cholesterol levels are twice as likely to develop a form of heart disease.

There are 7 subtypes of LDL cholesterol, and one of them is lipoprotein (a), which was discovered in 1966. By the mid-’90s, it was determined that having high levels of lipoprotein (a) increased your risk factors tenfold for heart attack and stroke, as well as the development that specific nutritional deficiencies enhance the occurrence of lipoprotein a.

Cholesterol medications, or statin drugs, inhibit a substance called BK4, which is inflammatory in nature. This means that cholesterol medication’s benefits are most likely due to the anti-inflammatory effects on the blood vessels, as opposed to a reduction in the total cholesterol. The inhibition of BK4 also causes inhibition to our immune system, otherwise known as immunosuppression.

The real key to reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease is to reduce the inflammation in the blood vessels and address any potential clot issues.

Vitamin C significantly lowers LDL and mixed with other specific nutraceuticals and vitamins you can significantly reduce your lipoprotein (a) levels and increase your vitality by up to 30%! Vitamin C aids in wound healing and aids in the promoting of tissue repair and vascular remodeling. Inside the liver of some animals they make up to 20k mg of vitamin c, and that’s what keeps their vascular system working and why you don’t see many animals dying of heart attacks.

There are many things you can for this today! Eating a specific diet, exercising, no sugar, no smoking, and watching your cholesterol and fat intake can all make huge improvements in your levels. Sometimes, these things can be mismanaged and if you’re concerned, I’m here to help!

Dysbiosis

Human beings are super-organisms, and they’re full of trillions of viruses, bacteria, and fungi. Collectively, this is known as the microbiome. The composition of your microbiome can help form a healthy immune response, or predispose the body to disease. The intestinal microbiome acts like a signaling hub, integrating environmental inputs such as diet and lifestyle, with out genetic and metabolic pathways. This impacts a myriad of systems, including the immune system.

Dysbiosis typically occurs when the bacteria in your gastrointestinal (GI) tract, which includes your stomach and intestines, becomes unbalanced. Most of the microbiome in your body is symbiotic, or beneficial to the body and microbiome, while some smaller parts are pathogenic, which promotes disease. When a body is healthy, pathogenic and symbiotic microbiota can coexist without problems. But if there’s a disturbance in that balance, which can be brought on by infectious diseases, specific diets, or prolonged use of antibiotics or other bacteria-destroying medication, dysbiosis occurs.

Maintaining a homeostatic balance between microbial activity and immune response is what allows the immune system to properly defend against infection. The health of your body and your microbiome are constantly changing, which means you always have the opportunity to improve. There are many ways that we can improve our microbiome health, but the most important thing to do is to have a plan that’s individualized to you, as we all have unique individual biochemistry and what works for some may not work for others.

TMJ: What Is It and How Can We Help

When most people think of chiropractors, they often think of back, neck or spine pain. One place you may not expect chiropractic to help with is pain in the jaw, but your chiropractor may be able to relieve this pain, specifically pain in the Temporomandibular Joint, or TMJ.

TMJ is the term for the paired joints between the upper and lower jaws, as well as the term generally used to describe pain or dysfunction in these same joints.

Symptoms of TMJ include pain in or around the ear, headaches, neck pain, jaw pain and soreness, difficulty opening or closing the mouth, popping or clicking noises when opening the mouth, jaw stiffness, tinnitus, dizziness, and sensitive teeth.

TMJ is very common, and the causes can be from injury or trauma to the jaw, teeth grinding, nail biting, degenerative joint diseases like arthritis, stress or emotional overload, infections and autoimmune disorders. In some cases, misalignment of the jaw is the result of improper posture or back problems.

The pain from TMJ can sometimes grow to intolerable levels and the condition can truly be debilitating and significantly lower your quality of life. The good news is, we’re here to help. Call 253-302-3131 or visit www.DrRyanBland.com to schedule your appointment today.

Immunity and the Microbiome

Time is passing so quickly, and winter is swiftly approaching! Winter often means an increase in coughing, sneezing, sore throats and other cold and flu-like symptoms. These can often be avoided by taking the proper steps to optimize your health and boost your immune system BEFORE you get sick. By doing this, your body is better prepared to fight off infection without a problem.

Our bodies are easily overloaded in today’s society from physical, mental and chemical stressors, and any stress on the body stops it from reaching its full potential! In our office, we utilize applied kinesiology muscle testing, functional medicine, extensive examination procedures, and laboratory testing to create individualized nutritional, detoxification, and supplement programs, including diet and lifestyle changes, to help restore your body’s to it’s optimal state.

Why You Should Only Buy Supplements from a Healthcare Professional.

In today’s times, we have the ability of getting anything we want very easily. The internet has provided us with the opportunity to buy anything we desire, simply with the click of a button. But when it comes to purchasing supplements online, you may want to think twice. Is saving a few dollars worth sacrificing your health?

There are three main ways that supplements end up on the market disguised as medical quality products:

1. They are counterfeit and probably dangerous.
2. They are useless, expired products that have been repackaged as new.
3. They are stolen products released with lack of quality control.

Unless you are receiving your supplements from a healthcare practitioner who is licensed and experienced in dealing with supplementation, there’s no telling what you could be putting into your body. Studies have found many issues with these products, from having too much or too little of the medicinal ingredients, sometimes having no trace at all, and other times they were filled with just sawdust. All of these outcomes could be very dangerous when injested. This can be extremely detrimental to a patient’s health and I have had experiences where patients have had to go to the hospital because of reactions to counterfeit supplements.

All of the supplements I recommend and carry in office are all the highest grade, medicinal supplements, herbs and nutraceuticals that are coming directly from the source.

Coming from a second generation Applied Kinesiology and Medicine background I have had a lifetime watching the success of certain supplements and certain brands. Throughout my lifetime my family and I have developed a relationship with supplement companies that we trust.

I take great pride in sourcing only the best and most effective herbs, vitamins, nutraceuticals, cleanses, purification programs, protein powders, etc. Along with sourcing supplements I am always educating myself and others on how to effectively combine different supplements to help patients return to optimal health and well-being.

Holistic Healthcare for Children

As a parent, I know how difficult it is to see your child struggling and not know how to help them. Just as adults are impacted by their environment around them, so too are young children, including while still in the womb.

Our children today face stressors unlike any other generation. Social media, processed foods, increasing environmental toxins, and changing genetics demand a new approach to pediatric care. Sensory and nervous
system disorders are increasingly more common and the conventional approach to pediatrics often does not provide the answers.

I’ve had the honor of working with families that have children struggling with a wide range of physical and emotional challenges, including academic troubles, anxiety, attention disorders, erratic moods, physical pain, and withdrawn behavior.

I know many parents are looking for options that don’t include medicating their children, and the good news is there are answers!

The best way to get a child healthy, and keep them that way, is to consider every aspect of their lifestyle – diet, environment, exercise, stress, etc.

By taking a holistic approach to health, we are able to consider your child’s entire picture of health, and use the best and most appropriate options for healing. It is a process of strengthening
every system of the mind and body, and allowing your child’s natural healing potential to flourish.

Applied Kinesiology, Functional Medicine, and Chiropractic can have
serious benefits for your child’s wellbeing, development, and health
in so many positive ways.

Lectins

Lectins are carbohydrate-binding proteins found in your foods. Though they probably exist in all foods to some extent, they are highest in beans, grains, grain, and bean fed animal products, nuts, seeds, and nightshades. Fruits that are picked before they are ripe (those grown in other countries and then shipped to the USA) have a much higher lectin content vs. those that are allowed to fully ripen.

While lectins are crucial to plants for defense and communication of cell organization, in humans their role is very different and can be a huge contributor to a myriad of health conditions.

Lectins are extremely difficult to digest, and most lectin reactions result in symptoms such as gas, bloating, indigestion, reflux and diarrhea or constipation. When lectins pass through the gut lining, they can trigger inflammatory conditions such as eczema, IBS, arthritis, and other autoimmune conditions.

When lectins are not processed properly in the gut, they can get stuck in the gut wall, which can damage the lining and contribute to leaky gut. This can lead to the development of multiple food sensitivities, food allergies, and autoimmune conditions.

In our clinic, we use applied kinesiology muscle testing to help identify food and environmental substances that may be triggering your symptoms.

Hypercoagulation

Hyper-coagulation is a condition that causes the blood to clot more easily than normal. This may cause blood clots to form anywhere in your body, and some of these conditions may become life-threatening. Blood clots can travel to the arteries or veins in the brain, heart, kidneys, lungs and limbs, which can cause heart attack, stroke, damage to the body’s organs, or even death.

In the United States, heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women. One person dies every 37 seconds from cardiovascular disease, and about 647,000 Americans die of heart disease every year.

Deep vein thrombosis, stroke, heart attack, pulmonary embolism, myocardial infarction, and peripheral artery disease may all be caused by hyper-coagulation. This condition may also lead to chronic illnesses, such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteonecrosis and fibromyalgia.

Getting on the proper diet, supplements and lifestyle can help make all the difference for this condition.

Call 253-302-3131 or visit www.DrRyanBland.com to schedule your appointment today, and help find the proper conditions for your body to thrive.

Glyphosate

We are all painfully aware of the toxic nature of our environment, with many of those toxins being linked to a multitude of skyrocketing health issues. One of the most prevalent and insidious toxins, damaging in surprising ways, is glyphosate.

Glyphosate has been classified as “probably carcinogenic to humans” according to the W.H.O. Research has found that glyphosate is an endocrine disruptor, meaning that it interferes with the proper functioning and production of hormones.

Acute inflammatory responses to glyphosate becomes chronic inflammation in the system, as the body is overwhelmed by the outside world. Glyphosate enhances the damaging effects of other food-borne chemical residues and environmental toxins. Negative impact on the body is subtle and manifests slowly over time as inflammation damages cellular systems throughout the body.

I recommend that all my patients to BUY ALL organic and avoid ALL GMO’s, including processed and packaged foods containing non-organic corn, soybean and sugar. I also recommend a supplement in some cases, Glypho-X Supreme by Supreme Nutrition Products, which contains herbs found to protect against damage caused by glyphosate.

Biofilms

You may not be familiar with the term “biofilms” but you’ve certainly encountered them on a regular basis.

Dental plaque that forms on your teeth and causes tooth decay is one type of bacterial biofilm. If you’ve ever walked in a stream or a river, you’ve probably felt the slippery feeling of biofilms on coated rocks. Biofilms regularly appear on many household surfaces such as toilets, sinks, countertops, and cutting boards.

When the normal balance of microbial populations in our body is irritated, or when our immune system is overwhelmed, it can put a great strain on our bodies and can lead to infection. Biofilms are clusters of bacterial breakdown products that basically live in the body as bacterial slime. This causes inflammation and exacerbation of current symptoms within the body and is rarely identified by most practitioners.

An experienced Applied Kinesiology and Functional Medicine practitioner can help identify which microbes you are struggling with, and offer nutritional planning and supplementation to help alleviate these symptoms.

Lyme Disease

Are you or a loved one suffering from Lyme? The CDC reports that Lyme disease infects 300,000 people per year but that number is widely underreported. Many cases are mild, but Lyme disease can be debilitating for those who suffer.

Typically those infected have common co-infections. Alongside the infection, many patients have food allergies, viruses, candida overgrowths, heavy metal toxicity, etc.

Many Lyme clinics, unfortunately, only treat Lyme and ignore other co-infections and or health issues that Lyme patients most often have. Most Lyme patients present to also have a fungal/candida overgrowth or heavy metal toxicities. An increase in the total toxic load on the body will make it difficult to treat the patient.

Lyme and its co-infections can be intimidating and confusing to deal with. However, I have seen patients make full recoveries. If you or a loved one is suffering from Lyme, please reach out to me see how I can help facilitate and accelerate your healing process.

Mold and Fungus

A fungal infection from mold can cause very serious health
complications. It’s typical for me to see and identify patients who
are dealing with toxic mold exposure to different kinds of molds. When toxins overload the human body’s natural defense system, it is common to see weight gain, a cough that won’t go away, or others will present
with issues concerning digestion. In some people with concurrent
conditions, this can cause a chronic illness to persist and in many times, get worse.

In most cases, the mold is not visible and almost impossible to
identify. Sometimes you can see the mold growing, and severe
remediation is needed. Most times, these issues in one’s home are very treatable. Not everyone responds the same to mold, some people who live in a moldy house may feel great while someone else who may feel
awful with low levels. Sometimes it is essential to run lab tests to
determine the source of the exposure.

After treating for the exposure of mold, it’s crucial you are treated
also. Leaving or fixing your environment doesn’t get rid of the mold growing inside of you. Your nuclear family also needs to be treated, so that you don’t continue to pass microbes back and forth. Moldy homes can cause fungal and candida overgrowth in the body, creating a plethora of health issues. Weight gain, depression, anxiety, insomnia, brain fog, and many other symptoms can all be linked to fungal overgrowth. Treating the patient doesn’t have to take long if you ensure you aren’t being exposed to more while being treated.

Colic, Fussy Babies, and Digestion

Colic is defined as the frequent, prolonged, and intense periods of significant distress in an otherwise healthy infant. The symptoms of colic can range from mild to extremely distressing, for both the infant and the parents! These symptoms can lead to anxiety, poor quality of life, developmental delays, as well as short and long-term health consequences.

Fortunately, Chiropractic care has been found to have some of the best results in dealing with infants with colic. 94% of colicky babies showed significant improvement with chiropractic adjustments.

Any subluxation, allergy, food intolerance, toxin, or disturbance in the system can adversely affect functioning and result in discomfort, gas or other colic symptoms. Chiropractic is a gentle, non-invasive, holistic option for treating infants with colic and works to help restore normal function to the child’s digestive tract, nervous system, and other related organs to help bring restore optimal functioning.

Chiropractic Adjustments for Children

Some adults may wonder why more and more children are starting to see chiropractors, and the answer is simple: as the tree grows crooked, so do the branches. A straight spine is a healthy spine! the spine house has the nervous system and it is imperative for it to be free of nervous system interference.

Your nervous system is the regulator of every other system in the body. It regulates blood flow, brain function, bone growth, and overall makes sure that the growing body is healthy and running optimally.

We all experience thoughts, traumas, and toxins and I consider these the three main stressors that we all experience in this life whether we are an adult or a child.

Being a father myself I notice a huge difference when my son gets regular care, takes his vitamins, and eats the right foods for him. Working with pediatric patients is so rewarding because they are so quick to respond positively to care.

From kids with migraines to ADHD, allergies, developmental disorders, and many more we specialize in restoring optimal function to the bearers of the future.

When I was born my father adjusted me at 5 minutes old and since then I don’t remember a week when I didn’t get adjusted. I have personally seen how amazing chiropractic and holistic care has elevated the quality of my life!

In our office, we’re focused on using gentle, holistic therapies including Chiropractic, Applied Kinesiology, Functional Medicine, Clinical Nutrition, and many other modalities to help correct issues before children fully develop, and that that work with the body’s own innate intelligence and ability to heal itself.

Chiropractic Care Can Help Everyone!

Chiropractic is a system of care that’s focused on the structure of the body, particularly the spine. The alignment of the spine affects the nervous system greatly. The spine is home to the spinal cord, and nerves extend from the brain to the body and back, so this flow must be allowed to continue without inhibition to help carry messages to the body to function properly. Chiropractors utilize treatments, including manipulation, physical therapy modalities, patient education, and nutrition and rehabilitation exercises to help address each person’s unique situation.

Although many people visit the chiropractor and have experienced the benefits, there is still a lot of misconceptions when it comes to Chiropractic. Many people visit a chiropractor because they are in pain, have poor posture, or are seeking injury prevention or pain relief, but the benefits of chiropractic span far beyond just pain relief. Chiropractic care can improve on a variety of conditions and disorders from chronic migraines to foot or leg pain.

Regular visits to a chiropractor help ensure the continued health of your musculoskeletal system, helps prevent future aches and pains, helps protect and enhance the communication pathways of the spinal cord and nerve roots, as well as helps safely manage pain and a wide range of conditions without the use of drugs.

On-going chiropractic care helps keep your spine aligned, and a spine that is aligned is stronger and more supported, which can lead to a decrease in the risk of injury. When your body is balanced, it lessens your risk of injuring yourself, incurring problems, or relapsing on old issues. And after a while, you’ll notice when your body needs an adjustment! Just as you take your car in for regular tune-ups, your body needs it too!

Holistic Healthcare for Children

As a parent, I know how difficult it is to see your child struggling and not know how to help them. Just as adults are impacted by their environment around them, so too are young children, including while still in the womb.

Our children today face stressors unlike any other generation. Social media, processed foods, increasing environmental toxins, and changing genetics demand a new approach to pediatric care. Sensory and nervous
system disorders are increasingly more common and the conventional approach to pediatrics often does not provide the answers.

I’ve had the honor of working with families that have children struggling with a wide range of physical and emotional challenges, including academic troubles, anxiety, attention disorders, erratic moods, physical pain, and withdrawn behavior.

I know many parents are looking for options that don’t include medicating their children, and the good news is there are answers!

The best way to get a child healthy, and keep them that way, is to consider every aspect of their lifestyle – diet, environment, exercise, stress, etc.

By taking a holistic approach to health, we are able to consider your child’s entire picture of health, and use the best and most appropriate options for healing. It is a process of strengthening
every system of the mind and body, and allowing your child’s natural healing potential to flourish.

Applied Kinesiology, Functional Medicine, and Chiropractic can have
serious benefits for your child’s wellbeing, development, and health
in so many positive ways.

Nutritional Consultation for Adults

Thoughts, traumas, and toxins all plague us in the form of stress. Our rate of recovery needs to exceed our level of stress in order to prevent chronic diseases and injuries! We must bring balance into our lives, and at a time like this, it is the most important thing we can do.

Utilizing Applied Kinesiology muscle testing, as well as Chiropractic, Clinical Nutrition, Functional Medicine, and a multitude of other modalities, I uncover the cause of injury or disease rather than chasing symptoms.

My goal is to help each individual restore their health, maximize their potential, and to educate on how to reclaim their lives.
