Our Gift To You and
Your Loved Ones
The Goal of Chiropractic Adjustments
adjustments to correct subluxations are what make doctors of
chiropractic unique in comparison with any other type of health
care professional. The term “adjustment” refers to the specific
force chiropractors apply to vertebrae that have abnormal
movement patterns or fail to function normally.
goal of receiving adjustments should be to restore the body to
its natural state of optimal health. In order to accomplish
this, chiropractors can use and recommend a variety of natural
healing methods, including adjustments, trigger point therapy,
nutrition, exercise rehabilitation, and counseling on lifestyle
issues that impact your health. The primary focus is simply to
remove those things which interfere with the body’s natural
normal healing ability. The adjustment of the spine is the
primary objective of a chiropractor.

Virgin, PhD, CNS/Celebrity Wellness Expert
In my work on
the Dr. Phil Show, the entire crew utilizes Chiropractic care. We
have directly seen its positive effects on our own health and well
being. But more so, we have keenly observed those guests on the show
in our "Biggest Loser" segments that do not use Chiropractic care.
The difference in overall health is markedly different.
It is my sincerest suggestion to you that the
greatest gift you can give yourself, and those of whom you love, as
well as those that love you, is the gift of health and well being.
Your Chiropractor is an expert in these areas. Please ask for
suggestions to make your life and the life of your loved ones the
very best it can be.
7 Foods That Should be Blown Off This Year
Of course, you're
of the mindset that THIS is finally the year that your four food
groups aren't sugar, white flour, greasy takeout and anything that
hosts pepperoni. I'm proud of you for making some solid choices in
the New Year to toss out the cookies, candy, cakes and muffins.
Thrilled describes how I feel that you're going to avoid the obvious
bad fast foods and limit your pizza intake.
But there are still
sneaky "supposed health foods" that will trick you into thinking
they're good for you. I want you to also blow these guys off for
Foods That You Will Kiss Off in 2010:
Yogurt. Yogurt plus artificial sweeteners does not equal
good health. Plus regular yogurt is a carb bomb and the sweet taste
just leaves you craving more sweet. Lateral shift: Greek yogurt.
You get a load of sugar AND a cupful of potential negative effects
from soy including lowered thyroid function. Soy is one of the top
genetically modified crops, bred so that it can withstand the
effects of Roundup. Unfortunately, it doesn’t kill the plant but it
soaks right up into it which means you get some too. Lateral Shift:
Heart healthy coconut milk.
Flavored Power Waters. The power is really a blood sugar
spike because these drinks are sugar, sugar and more sugar OR if you
are getting the “light” version - artificial sweeteners… Lateral
Shift: Sparkling water with some Emergen-C.
Sugar, artificial flavorings, soy protein….check the label and see
if you can pronounce much of what are in these….They are adult candy
bars. Lateral Shift: Try a piece of fresh fruit OR better yet skip
it altogether because you don't need this high cal snack or any
snack if you're eating three great meals a day.
Lowfat Muffins. It's just an adult version of cake. Many
supposed healthy muffins that call themselves banana bran whatever
are just 500 calorie, sugar-packed carb bombs. Lateral Shift: 2
poached eggs and steel cut oatmeal.
Added Jam. Remember that no sugar added means that there is
already sugar from the fruit and then more added by concentrating
that fruit, but they're just not dumping in table sugar. Lateral
shift: spread a little almond butter on your toast and top with
Milk. A total carb bomb that sets you up for mid-morning
blood sugar blues. Lateral Shift: Try not eating breakfast for
breakfast. You can take your protein from last night plus leftover
grilled veggies and make a delish wrap. That should definitely
satisfy you until lunch
Importance Of Proper Posture
Japanese art form of growing Bonsai trees is fascinating. Bonsai
trees are essentially normal shrubs that have been consistently
stressed in a particular way for a long time to create a posture
which would never be found in nature. Depending on how the tree is
stressed while it grows, it may end up looking like a miniature
version of a full-sized tree, or it may end up looking like a wild
tangle of branches with twists and loops. To most people, "good
posture" simply means sitting and standing up straight. Few of us
realize the importance of posture to our health and performance.
The human body
craves alignment. When we are properly aligned, our bones, not our
muscles, support our weight, reducing effort and strain. The big
payoff with proper posture is that we feel healthier, have more
energy, and move gracefully. So while the word "posture" may
conjure up images of book-balancing charm-school girls, it is not
just about standing up straight. It’s about being aware of and
connected to every part of yourself.
