Wellness Care Versus Medical Care

What is Wellness Care Versus Medical
What’s the main
difference between wellness care and standard medical care?
Wellness care seeks to turn on the natural healing ability, not
by adding something to the system, but by removing anything that
might interfere with normal function, trusting that the body
would know what to do if nothing were interfering with it.
Standard medical care, on the other hand, seeks to treat a
symptom by adding something from the outside – a medication, a
surgery or procedure.

6 Ways to
Kick Start Your (Fading) Health Resolutions
There is a common bug that many people pick up. I call it "I Can't
Do It-itis." It's that feeling that you've tried to eat healthy,
tried to workout and tried to get your body in shape. Now, you
think, "I can't do it." Stop and don't let this bug get into your
Here are a few ways or "booster shots" to jump start your plan and
see real progress. There is nothing more motivating than the number
on the scale going down or that special skirt or skinny jeans
actually fitting you. Here's a few ways to get there.
1. Eat a big breakfast. Research shows dieters who
get up to half their calories at breakfast lose more weight than
those who spread those same cals throughout the day. Go for 400-600
cals at breakfast – and be sure to eat within an hour of waking up.
2. Start your day with a meal replacement shake.
People who replace a meal with a shake lose more weight and KEEP it
off, plus it is EASY & FAST and you can throw in some great
nutrition into it as well.
3. Do a dairy free/gluten free trial. I'm finding
that roughly 50 percent of my clients are dairy sensitive and 30
percent are gluten sensitive which causes gas and bloating, cravings
and make them hold onto “false fat”. Test yourself by yanking these
from your diet completely for 30 days.
4. Avoid the high fructose corn syrup. This is the
worst of the sugars out there. It can cause leptin and insulin
resistance which means it makes you hungrier AND a better fat storer.
IF you eat it after exercise it can block fat burning. Don’t be
fooled by fructose – save it for your fruit and Emergen-C packets!
5. Make friends with fat. Coconut milk and oil can
help you burn more fat AND crush your hunger by raising the
neuropeptide CCK that signals your brain that you are full.
6. Limit your fluid intake at meals to 4-8 ounces
total to avoid making a STEW of your stomach acid which can impair
often treated with chiropractic care. Many allergic and asthmatic
reactions are caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system
and/or respiratory system. Researchers have found that the immune
and respiratory systems depend on normal communication from the
brain and spinal cord to control and coordinate their functions
your neck is misaligned, it could cause an imbalance in your
nervous system function. This upper cervical spinal joint
irritation could possibly produce or exaggerate asthmatic and
allergic symptoms. For example; many asthma and allergy sufferers
experienced traumas such as head injuries, auto accidents, or
falls which could have injured their upper cervical spines. The
good news is that we can perform an upper cervical examination to
determine if chiropractic care can reduce your allergic and
asthmatic reactions. Schedule an appointment today!
