The science behind Chiropractic care offer safe and effective outcomes to mothers and babies. A 2012 study demonstrated its effectiveness for pregnancy, labor, and delivery.
Mention raw food to people, and the first thing they will think of is something like trail mix or even more extreme, such as eating raw chicken. The raw foods we already eat and are familiar with (so we just need to eat more of them, and then add new ones we learn about) are things like salads, fruits, nuts (no, not the monster tub of roasted, salted nuts from Costco), and vegetables. However, if you scratch below the surface, there’s much, much more to raw food than meets the eye (or the tongue, more appropriately). There’s a cornucopia of gastronomic delights waiting for you in the raw food world. The next time you travel to a new city, do a search before you go and find the raw restaurants for the area and go eat at one – it will be an eye-opening, mouth-watering experience. But, before we go too much further, let’s start with: why raw food?
You probably know that chiropractic care is great for adjustments, especially of the spine, and maybe you even know that it can help with headaches, sleep difficulties, respiratory problems, and a slew of other health concerns.
Chiropractors focus on the central nervous system, since a misalignment can “choke off” nerves, which in turn can have an impact on every part of the body. However, many people don’t know that chiropractic care and weight loss (or management) is another viable treatment program.
Maybe it’s not a sluggish metabolism or those cheat days make you plateau. Maybe it’s an issue that a chiropractor can address.
First, you must recognize that just because you used to be heavy and may have lost weight the old-fashioned way or even with surgery, that doesn’t mean your body snapped back to perfect health. Carrying excessive weight can do a number on every part of your body, but especially the bones and joints.
Some chiropractors even specialize in overweight/obese patients because they know all too well what excessive weight can do to the spine. Losing the weight is only half the battle; there may be a host of issues below the surface you’re unaware of.
Holiday travel can be brutal on your body. Long hours spent jammed into a small seat on an airplane has the potential to cause a flare up of pain in your low back or neck. Even if you are traveling by car, be careful when lifting suitcases that are stuffed with an entire closet worth of clothes and gifts. Proper spinal alignment can help your body function at it’s the highest level and keep the holiday back pain at bay!
Treat yourself to good health this holiday season by making good choices with your nutrition. The week between the end of the holidays and the new year can be a difficult time to eat healthy. The abundant leftovers, travel, and stress make it easy to compromise and stop by the drive-thru on the way home. But, did you know recent research indicates that the foods you eat can actually impact your likelihood of getting sick?
