Health Hunters – Why Your Stomach Acid Is Important - I am reasonably certain that, from time to time, most of us have suffered from acid reflux. Here I am talking about the simple indigestion that may come from a meal too rich in fats or meats or perhaps too much alcohol. However, for many of us, when simple indigestion becomes a chronic daily problem that can lead to serious illness, this is called gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
Health Hunters – Taking a Break - By the time most patients get to integrative medicine, they have already been on a long journey of seeking the right care. Many are tired from the journey. It has required effort just to maintain hope. There have been enough disappointments along the way that there is usually some degree of distrust that accompanies their exhaustion, when first arriving to the integrative or alternative care practitioner.
Health Hunters – Regenerative Injection Therapies - Science shows that our body will produce and shuttle certain nutrients upon injury. When it is not given enough tools, time, or attention to the system, a “work around” is formed. In order to heal, we must remind the body of the injury again and encourage it to solve the problem.
Health Hunters – A Guide to Your Best, Healthy Summer! - Summer is a great season. Flowers are in bloom, vegetables are ripening, and the days are long. The new growth and life are motivating for us to form new habits, get more active, and enjoy the beautiful outdoors. In this article, we are going to be talking about how to make the most of our summer months by avoiding common chemicals used in the summertime and creating new routines and habits that will fuel a healthy lifestyle.
Health Hunters – DETOX - Many doctors truly believe that the process of cleansing and detoxiﬁ cation is virtually one of the most powerful healing therapies. Cleansing, fasting, and detoxiﬁ cation, are different degrees of the same process of reducing toxin intake and enhancing toxin elimination.
Health Hunters – Intermittent Fasting - With this lifestyle, food was not always readily available. Most of the time, eating came in a “feast or famine” sort of pattern. The biochemistry of our bodies adapted to that way of living. When you abstain from food for a period, it creates a biological stressor to the body. This hormetic effect induces pathways in the body that can have healing effects....
Health Hunters – Live More Joyfully - Our brain (our mind) has become trained to multitask, plan the future and ruminate the past. This has left the present moment often forgotten. The irony is that the present moment is really the only one we have...
Health Hunters – The Emotions of PMS - If a woman can understand and accept these changes as normal and healthy, then solutions can be found and she can adjust her lifestyle a bit during that time to help compensate. Most often PMS is treated like a disease...

Health Hunters – New Thinking About the Brain - The fear of growing old just got a whole lot tougher for many heading into retirement age. The prevalence of dementia among older generations carries questions about the risk not only to our physical, but also to our cognitive well-being in later life. More people live in fear of the development of dementia than the development of cancer. The fear of dementia occurs in two-thirds of people over fifty, while just one out of every ten fears cancer. These fears can surface whenever we can’t find our keys or recall a name. It is common and understandable to feel this way, especially if we see the effects of dementia and Alzheimer’s in family members. The truth is, we can improve our mental state and prognosis right now! Our brains were built to adapt, not decay.
Health Hunters – Lectins - We live in an incredible time in history. At no other point has life been so comfortable for humans. We don’t have to forage for our food, we live in temperature-controlled environments, we sleep on soft mattresses, and we have vehicles to transport us to where we need to go. Yet, we are in the midst of an epidemic of chronic diseases. People are stressed, tired, anxious, depressed, disconnected, in pain and angry. We are quick to want to medicate our symptoms away without asking what could be the root of all of those symptoms. I can’t speak to your exact condition, but what my experience has taught me is that inflammation is at the root of most chronic diseases.
Health Hunters – Stem Cell Therapy for Chronic Disease Part 2 - The stem cells in our blood, also called circulating stem cells, are the tools our bodies use to repair damaged tissue and to keep us healthy. Aging, genetics, and poor lifestyle choices use up our supply of circulating stem cells. You can’t stop aging, and you can’t help genetics, but you can improve both areas by taking action with what you can change: your lifestyle choices. The harder you work to take care of the stem cells you have, and the less frequently you use them to repair damages you could have avoided with a healthy lifestyle, the more you are doing to protect what all the money in the world can’t buy back once it’s wasted: your own good health.
Health Hunters – Stem Cell Therapy for Chronic Disease Part 1 - The reason one cell [stem cells] can do this is because the root cause of the majority of chronic diseases is either a lack of these cells or a dysfunction of these cells or a combination: these cells just aren’t doing their jobs anymore. We know the exact molecule that they don’t produce in lupus patients, we know they are dysfunctional in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients, we know in rheumatoid arthritis they don’t secrete what they’re supposed to, so basically every auto-immune disease, I believe, is a net result of a lack or dysfunction of these cells.
Health Hunters – Hypertension: A Natural Approach - Hypertension is nothing to overlook. If left untreated, it can lead to long-term complications. The natural approaches here are listed as an educational resource only and should not be considered as medical advice. Please feel free to ask your doctor about these therapies as individual or adjunctive treatments for high blood pressure. As always, we here at the Riordan clinic are here for you.
Health Hunters – The Mouth-Body Connection - While nobody would deny that the mouth is a part of the body, it is nevertheless most notable how few physicians and dentists routinely consider their connections to each other’s domain in the practice of their professions. Not only are they connected, they are connected at the hip. A mouth-disease connection of significance is a common situation, not a rare one. Rather than virtually never being considered as affecting one another, the interplay between the mouth and the rest of the body should mandate that the evaluation of such a connection be at the top of the list of considerations when either the physician or the dentist sees a patient for the first time.
Health Hunters – Sleep, Wakefulness and Overall Health - Given the evidence from experimental studies supporting the ability of melatonin to slow the growth of cancer, it is theorized that exposure to light at night not only has an impact on breast cancer risk, but also may increase the risk of other cancers, primarily through the melatonin pathway. This has been posed previously without much further attention from the scientific community, but most recent evidence from observational studies supports such a link.
Health Hunters – Can IV Vitamin C Stop a Deadly Infection? - If IV Vitamin C is improving survival rates in sepsis, could the patients getting sepsis (the elderly, the people with chronic conditions like diabetes, the patients with weakened immune systems on chemotherapy with cancer) have a deficiency in vitamin C? Could people with chronic illness be walking around in their daily life with a low grade scurvy? Furthermore, could they have other deficiencies we don’t even know about such as vitamin D? Could they be deficient in minerals, amino acids, healthy fats, B vitamins, etc.? Based on my years in practice I believe these are valid questions to pose, and ones that can mean the difference between life and death for, not just sepsis, but all chronic conditions. As an example, Vitamin D deficiency has been documented in studies as an independent risk factor for mortality (risk of death) of ICU patients.
Health Hunters – How to Avoid Sugar - If you had read the title of this article to our ancestors 10,000 years ago, you would have sounded crazy. Avoid sugar? Our ancestors’ survival was dependent upon finding energy (food) and, in nature, sugar is the best source of quick energy. This is why sugar tastes so good to us. It is genetically programmed in our brains to signal pleasure and reward. In fact, our brains run on sugar (glucose) for energy... As with any substance, a little bit can be good, but too much can be toxic... Our bodies are dependent upon glucose for survival. However, overconsumption of sugar has been implicated in many of the chronic diseases of modern living that we see today.
Health Hunters – Magnesium Decreases Hyperactivity in ADHD Children - Magnesium deficiency is found more frequently in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) than in healthy children. In one study of ADHD children, magnesium deficiency was found in 95 percent of those examined (1). Does this warrant magnesium supplementation for hyperactive children? The answer is...
Health Hunters – Heart Disease and Vitamin C - How to Protect Yourself from Accelerated Aging. High dose vitamin C has potential effects in inflammatory status and improving defense status in subjects with metabolic syndrome. We also demonstrated that the activation of translational factor Nrf2 by IVC treatment can induce protection against age-related degenerative diseases and cancer.
Health Hunters – A Natural Approach for Infertility - There is so much we at the Riordan Clinic can do to help increase your chances of fertility. Our state-of-the-art laboratory can measure most nutrients, which can help us pinpoint what deficiency or excess may be preventing your body from accepting pregnancy. People are spending an average of $10–25K per in vitro fertilization (IVF) attempt. The success rate for IVF on first attempt is only 30-35% for women under 35! I would recommend first spending six months at our center doing a FULL nutrient workup, which would be less than half the cost of one IVF treatment. We see patients from all over the world, so you do not have to be a Wichitan to receive this top-notch care. We cannot promise pregnancy, but I can say I’ve seen many “infertile” women achieve pregnancy. If they are not able to achieve pregnancy, the only side effect would be better health and well-being. It is a priceless investment!

Health Hunters – In Defense of Estrogen - Our assertion, from the field of Orthomolecular Medicine, is that there are often no better ‘drugs’ than the human hormones and other chemicals that already exist in the body that simply need to be restored or enhanced with bioidentical chemicals. This is the ideal way to approach imbalances in hormone and other biochemical systems.
Health Hunters – Depression? Anxiety? You Are Not Alone - Have you ever had the experience of feeling depressed or anxious, but when you try to think of a reason you feel that way, you can’t come up with one? Or another scenario: if we feel anxious, our brain looks for a reason why we are feeling that way. We assume it must be our job, our kids, our spouse … etc. Or maybe we have felt that way our whole life and we just assume that is the way we are supposed to feel? In reality, it’s our neurochemistry that is altered and has influenced how we perceive the world.
Health Hunters – High-Dose IV Vitamin C - As a highly talked about minimally invasive treatment for cancer, high-dose IV vitamin C therapy is being introduced as a clinical treatment in more and more medical institutes in Japan. As an increasing number of cancer patients seek alternative “minimally invasive” treatments, we expect high-dose IV vitamin C therapy to be one of the most popular options.
Health Hunters – The Sun Shines on Vitamin D - We still call it vitamin D and yet, nearly every knowledgeable speaker on the topic begins by noting it is a hormone. Actually, D3 is a prohormone, which is inert until it undergoes a two-step activation process tightly regulated by the body. That is why D3 has such a wide margin of safety. The major function of the D3 hormone is gene regulation. Recently discovered functions of D3 regulation uncover the relationship between low D levels and the observed incidence of many disorders, like multiple sclerosis, diabetes, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn’s disease.
Health Hunters – Are You Rusting Inside? - If you look up anything about the process of oxidation, you may find that it takes place by means of something called ‘free radicals.’ Free radicals are like a fire. Many of the free radicals arise from the fire within us, called metabolism. Much of the metabolism of our cells takes place in the mitochondria. You can think of mitochondria as little power plants that power a city. They work day and night to convert energy to usable forms so that you can have the energy to think, walk, talk and be you. All of our cells make free radicals during metabolism in the mitochondria and they have a purpose, just as the power of fire can be harnessed and used as a tool for heat or light. However, if that fire gets out of hand it can cause excessive oxidative stress which breaks down our bodies quickly and we begin to age or rust inside.
Health Hunters – The Top 10 Most Toxic Minerals - "Many minerals are an essential part of a healthy diet. Some minerals are toxic, even in micro-amounts. They are formed by combinations of various elements. In this article you will learn, or be reminded, of the differences between minerals and elements, where the word mineral comes from, various toxic minerals and the dangers associated with each. We will also take a virtual “Grand Tour” of where the 10 most toxic minerals are likely to be encountered, what action to take if encountered, diagnostic symptoms, tests, and potential medications available for treatment."
Health Hunters – Journey to Healing: Finding New Life with Lyme Disease - "While I was not expecting a miracle at the Riordan Clinic, I actually got one! For me, IV Vitamin C (and other nutritionals), IV Glutathione and Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation were the keys that literally unlocked my body and brain and saved me. While it didn’t happen overnight, it happened in six days. The changes in my body were shocking. I went from sitting in a chair for four straight months (too fatigued or in too much pain to do simple chores; barely dragging myself through the day) to literally moving ALL day (7 a.m. to 9 p.m.) without sitting. That is a miracle in my book!" [READ MORE]
Health Hunters – Get Ready for Summer with HCG - Start by getting rid of junk food and fast food, eat lots of non-starchy vegetables, low glycemic fruits, lean protein, drink half of your body weight in clean water, and exercise! When the weight is already on your body, it is time to take action to get back to a healthy weight. If you want to jump start your weight loss, consider coming to Riordan Clinic and using HCG to help you shed those excess pounds. Our program was awarded “Best Nonsurgical Weight Loss Program” by the Wichita Eagle Readers’ Choice in 2014. It will help you get on the right path to better health. The basis for the Riordan Clinic HCG Rx+ Weight Loss Program was developed in Europe by Dr. Albert T. W. Simeons in the 1950s. It was his observations of pregnant women in famine, giving birth to normal weight babies, and obese women losing weight easily during pregnancy that started his interest in discovering what it was about pregnancy that allowed this to happen.

Health Hunters – Hoyt Lee’s Journey - Hoyt Lee's Journey "I read countless books and internet sites and the one that has changed our lives forever was a book by Ty Bollinger titled, “Cancer: Step Outside of the Box”. The end of his book he listed the top ten cancer clinics that he recommended in the world. My heart jumped with so much joy when one of the clinics mentioned… Riordan Clinic, in Wichita, Kansas!! Oh my gosh, only one and a half hours away from me… I was on the phone immediately!"
Health Hunters – Vitamin C and Cancer - Vitamin C and Cancer "70 years of research on Vitamin C show it to be much more than the “anti-scurvy factor”. It is the master controller of electron distribution and flow in our bodies. It is needed in over 10,000 biochemical reactions. It is a major antioxidant in the body, the immune system is practically useless without it, and the list goes on and on. The truth is that Vitamin C is causing a paradigm shift in science and medicine in the way it views the cause of disease and inflammation in the body. "
Health Hunters – The Miracle of Magnesium - In terms of a direct impact on health and longevity, there is no supplement more important than magnesium. Magnesium is the agent best suited to lessen the toxicity of excess calcium, which is present in varying degrees in all adults today. Understanding the toxicity of calcium and the benefits of magnesium, it is important to understand the physiology of disease at the cellular level. When this is appreciated, it then becomes clear as to what needs to be done to restore good health or at least how to slow the evolution of disease.
Health Hunters – Keep Your Pump and Pipes Working - Chelation therapy offers a greatly improved quality of life for millions of people with many different agerelated disease processes. In recent years, almost as many patients were being chelated as bypassed, with a 40 year record of safety. The effects of the treatments can be dramatic, restorative, and life prolonging. In this issue of the Health Hunters newsletter read about Chelation Therapy, Heart Health and how one patient's life was changed from their treatments.
