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.
Ways to Save Money While Eating and Drinking Healthy
Since my mission is to empower the world to be proactive about their
health by consistently implementing simple action steps, I realized
that I needed to make sure that I removed as many “excuses” as
possible. I realize that the two reasons I hear most often as to why
people don’t take better care of themselves are time and money.
Now, I do agree, when we tell you to switch to organic and buy wild
fish and high quality grass fed beef it can definitely cost more. So
here are some cost-cutting techniques to compensate for that
increased and necessary expense.
1. Spin your salad.
Okay, so I broke down and bought a salad spinner (they have very
cool ones at Target) because I realized that I was spending a small
fortune on bagged lettuce that I still had to wash (yep, you do
remember that e. coli scare, right?), so I really wasn’t saving any
time and it was definitely costing more money. Actually, Leanne Ely
and I were recording our Ultimate Meal Planning Guide and she was
talking about which kitchen tools you must have and she went on a
tear about salad spinners and I didn’t want to admit that I didn’t
Go to your local farmer’s market.
Go to your local farmer’s market and get to know your local growers.
Many growers use organic growing principles but don’t have the $$$
to spend to get the organic “label”. This is also great because it
ensures that you are buying local and seasonal which means fresher,
more nutritious food.
Pack your own.
I carry a safe drinking bottle with me to fill out with filtered
water on my travels – no more $4 plastic water bottles at the
airport for me. Plus, I always keep PaleoBars with me so I have
emergency food. The last time I forgot I ended up having to spend
$9.50 for a small bag of turkey jerky at the airport. I also travel
with nuts, apples and jerky so I don’t get caught empty handed and
have to choose some high cost, low nutrition option that will hurt
my body and my bank account.
4. Go simple.
Okay, I admit that I do have a daily Starbucks habit, but I have an
Americano (half decaf/half caf) which is far less than those gourmet
coffee drinks. Plus I usually end up working there for an hour or
so, so I justify it as paying office rent . If you are having one
(or more…) of those $4 gourmet coffee drinks daily, switch over to
green tea, an Americano or coffee and look at how much money you
save over the month.
When your local grocer is having a sale on grass fed beef, free
range chicken, organic olive oil, etc, stock up! And the same goes
for those coupons. I always laughed at them but the ones they hand
me at the store are usually for things that I am already buying so I
now carry them in my wallet. BTW, in the spirit of saving money, I
have decided that we are going to have a 24-hour “Buy 3, Get One
Free” Stock Up Sale on our shakes, bars and supplements soon, so
stay tuned for that.
Brew your own.
Have you checked out how much they charge for organic iced green tea
in plastic bottles (so you are paying for toxic phthalates from the
plastic too) at the store? Our local grocery sells it for $5 per
quart of brewed tea whereas I can make a gallon for $5 worth of
organic tea bags. My favorite green tea of all is Japanese Cherry
from Coffee Bean -- it makes amazing iced green tea.
You’ll be amazed at how much you can actually save each month by
following these simple tips (easily $100 to $200 each month).
Finally, there are the items that you want to spend all that saved
money on: high quality cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil, wild
fish and grass fed beef.
are 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 properly.
if 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!

to be examined, they can do so as a gift from you. The only

something similar, that will be donated to the local food bank
to help the homeless.
