Gluten Sensitivity Without Celiac Disease

Posted on August 29th, 2016

Traditionally gluten problems are thought of as being digestive, particularly damage to the small intestine called celiac disease. However, our work at Team Health Care Clinic has shown that gluten sensitivity can result in many other symptoms, often not related to digestion. Research done at the Columbia University Medical Center has confirmed what we see on a regular basis, namely that wheat and gluten can have far reaching effects on the body.

The researchers at Columbia University studied healthy individuals, celiac patients and individuals with symptoms that they associated with wheat consumption. What these researchers found was evidence of digestive tract damage in the non-celiac wheat sensitive people. Damage to the intestinal barrier  allows for increased absorption of undigested food into the body. This results in increased immune system reaction as well as increased inflammatory changes in the body. They, therefore, established the mechanism for what is being called non-celiac gluten sensitivity. They also noted that abstaining from gluten containing foods for 6 months significantly decreased the inflammatory reaction. (Continue Reading…)

Effective Therapy for Concussion and ADHD: Neurofeedback

Posted on August 18th, 2016

At Team Health Care Clinic, we have a special interest in brain based health concerns such as concussion and ADHD. Neurofeedback and QEEG Brain Map have been found to be effective interventions.

In a study of student athletes who experienced a concussion, researchers reported all continued to have visible damage on a specialized MRI six months after the injury. Especially concerning was that all were deemed recovered in 7 to 10 days, so signs of neurological damage persisted long after concussion symptoms disappeared. This is an important study and will be presented at the upcoming American Academy of Neurology conference. (Continue Reading…)

Recover From Soft Tissue Injury Faster With Graston Technique

The Gut-Brain Connection

At Team Health Care Clinic we  frequently have the opportunity to care for individuals who have experienced traumatic brain injury or concussion. What people don’t often realize is the far reaching ramifications as a result of such injury. One of these areas frequently affected is the gastrointestinal system.

My thank you to Dr. Jill Carnahan, M.D. for a recent article explaining this. She points out in her article something that we see daily in our clinic, that there is a strong connection between the brain and gut. (Continue Reading…)

Natural Solutions for Painful Plantar Fasciitis

While these injuries include plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, ankle or knee sprains, iliotibial (IT) band syndrome and shin splints, we are currently seeing an epidemic of plantar fasciitis. (Continue Reading…)

MRI Proves Neurofeedback Improves the ADD Brain

Posted on June 17th, 2016

Neurofeedback training is an important therapy for Team Health Care Clinic in Champlin, Mn. Neurofeedback has been shown to be beneficial for the symptoms of a variety of brain conditions such as: ADD, Anxiety, sleep disorders, migraines, concussion post traumatic stress  and others. MRI imaging has now shown that neurofeedback training improves the brain pathways in individual suffering with  attention deficit disorder (ADD).

People with attention problems often have imbalances in brainwaves in an important region of the brain called the frontal lobe. The frontal lobe is located behind your forehead and is responsible for maintaining attention. If your frontal lobe has too many of the slow moving theta waves, or not enough of the fast moving beta waves, you will likely have difficulty with maintaining your attention.Brain Structure (Continue Reading…)
