Soak up the Sun!

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013

The weather is supposed to be bright and beautiful encouraging you and your family into the outdoors! Do you have plans to enjoy the warmth and sunlight? Why not!? It’s time to plan some fun activities and get outside! Not to mention visit us at the clinic for some chiropractic care to keep those activities pain free!

You, like many other Americans, may have developed “solar-phobia” says Dr. Robert S. Stern, chair of the Department of Dermatology at Harvard. This is a result of the wave of information in the news about skin cancer. As a result, many suffer from a Vitamin D deficiency which could result in an increased chance for contracting a potentially dangerous illness. By responsibly increasing exposure to the sun and regular chiropractic care, you could decrease or even prevent your chances of contracting a number of life-changing illnesses. Research has shown that a Vitamin D deficiency could be at the root of: cardiovascular disease, cognitive impairment, asthma, cancer, diabetes, hypertension, glucose intolerance, hypo/hyper thyroid or multiple sclerosis! The list goes on!

Sunscreen blocks the same UVB rays that trigger the chemical and metabolic chain reaction that produces the Vitamin D our bodies need. So find that healthy balance, soak up the sun this spring, and get your Vitamin D factory going! Then come see us next week for the chiropractic care that will aid in eliminating nerve interference and promote the development of a properly functioning immune system.

Sunlight combined with chiropractic care can prepare your family for a healthy and happy summer!

Chiropractics and Nutrition Replaces Allergy Medication

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

     SPRING IS IN THE AIR! Literally, the flowers are releasing pollens in the air and although they are beautiful they can make you feel horrible! The traditional remedy has been to grab an over-the-counter antihistamine, decongestant or steroid cream but these drugs can be avoided with chiropractic care and nutrition.
Allergy medications could cause some side-effects that may not be worth the relief of taking them.

  1. Research suggests that antihistamines will cause drowsiness that leads to a lower libido, anxiety, depression and impairment of thinking.
  2. These drugs should also be avoided by those that are attempting to lose weight because they can alter one’s taste and smell as well as increase one’s appetite.
  3. Steroid creams can lead to a decrease in a child’s growth-rate as well as the development of osteoporosis and diabetes.
  4. Finally, decongestants dry out the mucous membranes which can lead to infertility for woman.                                                       

           All of these side effects can be avoided by using chiropractic care.

          Allergies occur when the immune system over reacts to an allergen and produces to many histamines to neutralize the foreign chemicals in their body. Subluxations of the spine create nerve interference that cause stress on your nervous system. Releasing the stress on your nervous system will allow it to more effectively neutralize allergy-causing chemicals without the help of medications. Chiropractic care can eliminate the nerve interference in your spine! If you Marry chiropractic care with allergy fighting herbs and nutrition, you can kiss over-the -counter drugs good bye!
