What is Chiropractic?
differentiates doctors of chiropractic from any other
healthcare professionals is the fact that chiropractors are
the only professionals who are trained to diagnose and treat
what are called spinal subluxations. The word “subluxation”
comes from the Latin words meaning “somewhat or slight"
(sub) and “to dislocate” (luxate). So the term
‘vertebral subluxation’ literally means a slight dislocation
or misalignment of the bones in the spine.
subluxation occurs, a chiropractor can correct the
misaligned bone and allow it to return to its proper
position. This procedure is appropriately called an
adjustment, and the adjustment enables the body to heal. The
chiropractic adjustment is a quick thrust applied to a
vertebra for the purpose of correcting its position,
movement or both. Adjustments are often accompanied by an
audible release of gas that sounds like a “crack.”
The sound sometimes shocks people a little bit the
first couple times they get adjusted, but the sensation is
chiropractic adjustment is important. The leak is fixed.
The wiring is fixed. Information is flowing again. To keep
the wiring fixed, several adjustments over a course of time
may be necessary. In the chiropractic world, keeping the
problem fixed and preventing its reoccurrence is just as
important as the initial correction.

Virgin, PhD, CNS/Celebrity Wellness Expert
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.
There is nothing
that says "home sweet home" quite as much as making your house a
place that fosters great health. I believe that your motivation
starts within the walls of your casa. After all, you have complete
(or at least a good amount) of control as to what comes into your
house and happens here AND this is where you are spending a good
chunk of your time.
There is a big
difference between a home that's filled with unhealthy habits and
one that is dedicated to the best you possible. Here are a few
tips to make sure your home is good for your health.
a Space for Your Workouts. I don't care if it's a whole
spare room or just a special corner in your otherwise cramped
apartment. Make sure that you make your workout spot inviting.
Invest in a good quality mat, a proper exercise ball and weights.
Buy some cheap weights at a discount store. They don't have to be
pretty ones. Put your family on notice that your workout spot is
off limits to everyone.?
Enemy Out of the House. If you can't resist chocolate,
soda, chips or whatever your vice then don't test yourself. It's
not called willpower; it's torture! Just make sure that the enemy
is not living with you. Don't use the excuse that your kids and
husband need to eat these things. What better favor could you do
them than to get rid of sugary or processed foods?
With the Good Stuff. Now that you actually have some
counter space and fridge shelves that are free make sure you stock
up on healthy treats and make them accessible to everyone in your
family. Keep fresh berries in a bowl and cut up salad greens
ready. If it's easy and convenient, you'll be more likely to make
Bedroom Your Sanctuary. You need 7 to 9 hours of
unbroken, quality sleep each night. Get rid of the TVs and
computers. Keep your cell phone in the kitchen or out of the
bedroom. Buy beautiful linens and comforters for your bed. Kick
out the critters (children and pets) and then make sure you keep
the room nice and cool for great restorative sleep.
Water Filtration System. You need to drink water (not
soda or sugary juices), so make sure that your water is as clean
and healthy as possible. You can also invest in an alkalizing
system so you have ready access to pure water.
De-clutter the closet. Lose the clothes that you are
holding onto for when you drop that last 10, 20 or 30 pounds.
Guess what, you are in the process of burning that fat off now and
as a reward you get NEW HOT INSTYLE TOGS not those ones that are
so yesterday (or yesteryear…). AND more importantly, the minute
something is too big, either get it tailored to fit your new
svelte bod or give it away… never give yourself the option to gain
goals visual. In our Fast Track to Fat Loss Program we
teach you to set inspirational goals and then get a photo of your
fave celeb body and put your head on it and then post it
everywhere to keep reminding you of what you want and where you
are going. Carry one with you as well - think of her or him as
your “protective armour of inspiration”. BTW, I have the Olympic
swimmer Dayna Torres on my wall. I am going for those 6 pack abs!
Colic is a
condition in young infants characterized by an unusual amount of
crying. When they cry, they may draw their arms and legs toward
their bodies as though they are in pain and may even turn bright
red. Colic usually appears between the 3rd and 6th week after
birth and is typically resolved by the time they are 3 months
old. Although no one is certain what causes colic, there are a
number of things that likely contribute, such as an immature and
irritated nervous system, food sensitivites and gastrointestinal
your baby suffers from colic, there are a few things that you
can do to help:
regular chiropractic care, especially during the first four
warm water bottle on your baby's stomach.
