      Lactase

When someone lacks or has insufficient amounts of lactase, they are unable to properly digest lactose, leading to symptoms such as bloating, gas, and diarrhea. This condition is known as lactose intolerance. Therefore, the lack of lactase is the cause of intolerance to milk, cheese, and ice cream.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Pasta
    B. Beers
    Explanation
    A patient with Celiac Disease cannot have pasta and beers. Celiac Disease is an autoimmune disorder where the consumption of gluten, found in wheat, barley, and rye, triggers an immune response that damages the small intestine. Pasta is typically made from wheat, which contains gluten. Beers, especially those made from barley or wheat, also contain gluten and are therefore not suitable for individuals with Celiac Disease. Eggs and beans, on the other hand, do not contain gluten and can be safely consumed by someone with Celiac Disease.

However, this is not true as there are various other medical systems and approaches, such as traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurveda, and naturopathy, that also contribute to a patient's well-being. Different individuals may find different approaches more effective for their well-being, and it is important to consider a holistic approach to healthcare rather than relying solely on Western medicine.

It involves slow, controlled movements that are gentle on the joints and can be easily modified to suit individual abilities. Tai chi also incorporates deep breathing and meditation, providing additional mental and emotional benefits. This form of exercise is particularly beneficial for older adults as it helps improve posture, reduce the risk of falls, and enhance overall well-being.

    Correct Answer(s)

    C. Guided imagery
    Explanation
    Hatha yoga, tai chi, and guided imagery are all part of meditation. Hatha yoga is a physical practice that combines postures, breathing exercises, and meditation to promote relaxation and mindfulness. Tai chi is a Chinese martial art that involves slow, flowing movements and deep breathing, which can help calm the mind and improve focus. Guided imagery is a technique where a person imagines peaceful and calming scenes to promote relaxation and reduce stress.

    Why would a patient go see a chiropractor? Select all that apply.

    • A.

      Lifting a heavy sofa

    • B.

      Works at a desk job

    • C.

      Insomnia

    • D.

      High cortisol levels

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Lifting a heavy sofa
    B. Works at a desk job
    Explanation
    A patient would go see a chiropractor if they have lifted a heavy sofa or work at a desk job. Lifting a heavy sofa can cause strain on the muscles and spine, leading to back or neck pain that may require chiropractic treatment. Similarly, working at a desk job often involves prolonged sitting and poor posture, which can also result in musculoskeletal issues that a chiropractor can address. Insomnia and high cortisol levels, on the other hand, are not typically reasons to seek chiropractic care.

  • 16. 

    If a patient decides to have a dairy free diet, they need to supplement with calcium only. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    If a patient decides to have a dairy-free diet, they need to supplement with more than just calcium. Dairy products are a major source of calcium, but they also provide other essential nutrients like vitamin D, protein, and potassium. Therefore, if someone eliminates dairy from their diet, they should ensure they are getting these nutrients from other sources such as fortified plant-based milk, leafy greens, nuts, and seeds. Simply supplementing with calcium alone would not be sufficient to meet their nutritional needs.

    The best way to digest flaxseed would be whole over grounded

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The correct answer is False because grinding flaxseed makes it easier for the body to absorb the nutrients. The outer shell of flaxseed is hard and tough, and grinding it helps to break down the shell, allowing the body to access the nutrients inside. Additionally, ground flaxseed is more versatile and can be easily added to smoothies, yogurt, or baked goods, making it easier to incorporate into a daily diet.

    • D.

      Digestive disorders

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Thyroid disease
    D. Digestive disorders
    Explanation
    Bladderwrack can be used for thyroid disease because it contains high levels of iodine, which is essential for proper thyroid function. It can also be used for digestive disorders because it has anti-inflammatory properties that can help soothe the digestive system and improve digestion. However, it is not typically used for adrenal or lymph disease.
