With the New Year right around the corner, many people will have a renewed commitment to health and several people have asked me what vitamins and supplements they should be taking as part of a program for wellness. There's so much confusion on this subject out there and I have seen people literally come in with bags of stuff that they've accumulated over the years. Unfortunately, often much of what people are taking isn't always necessary and even.... <view entire article>

If you've followed this column over the years, you know that physical, chemical, and emotional stressors, beyond the individual's ability to adapt, are the root cause of nearly all disease. Two of these are easier to adapt to and prevent a state of excess. For physical stress, you need to make time for regular exercise and utilize healing methods such as chiropractic, massage, physical therapy, yoga, etc. In the case of chemical stress, you need to reduce.... <view entire article>

As a chiropractor, I'm always challenging people to look to the cause of their pain, ailment, or illness because unless you uncover the cause, you'll always be treating and managing the symptoms. The World Health Organization has reported that the ultimate cause of any loss of health is excessive amounts of physical, chemical, and/or emotional stress beyond the body's natural ability to adapt. Research suggests that emotional stress is the single biggest factor of these different stressors. .... <view entire article>

It will soon be a new year with new resolutions and many, many, new gym memberships. I believe this is a great thing! What's not great is how many people fail to meet their health goals and go back to their old habits after just a couple months. After helping coordinate our wellness program, I've seen that there are three main reasons for this phenomenon. First, people have the intention but no plan or knowledge of.... <view entire article>

Is there something you know is bad for your health and potential for wellness, but in spite of that knowledge you do it anyway? Perhaps you watch too much T.V. or stay up too late, or maybe it's a toxic relationship, or most likely it's something you put into your body. We all do this, right? Oh, we may feel guilty about it afterwards or pledge that we're never going to do that again. But the.... <view entire article>

In my constant search for wellness-related subjects, it occurred to me that I've neglected all the massage therapists out there. The biggest misconception regarding massage is that it's a luxury that only the wealthy indulge in while they're vacationing in Monaco. The other stumbling block with massage is the thought that you're required to take your clothes off. Neither of these is true. Many people get massage through their clothing even though it's not as comfortable. .... <view entire article>

In the late 70's, a taping method was developed to facilitate the body's natural healing process. While it's been around for a long time, it gained popularity and credibility in the 2008 Summer Olympics when many of the athletes were sporting the tape to enhance their performance including the unbeatable sand volleyball team of Walsh and May. The original product, called Kinesio Tape was developed to have a similar texture and elasticity to human tissue. The misconception.... <view entire article>

In the year 2000 a simple study performed at Duke Universitychanged the way scientists looked at genetics and DNA. The study was set up to look at sets of so-called agouti mice which are mice that displayed an agouti gene causing the mice to be extremely obese and yellow in color. More than this, the presence of this gene also rendered these mice much more prone to cancer and diabetes. Almost 100% of the time, these agouti.... <view entire article>

A new client in our office expressed his relief when I shared his recommended treatment plan. I simply told him I expected a full recovery and that he should expect these results in the next few weeks. He breathed a sigh of relief and said that he'd been very worried as he'd always heard that chiropractors try to keep you coming back in forever. Personally, I don't believe this is a reality any more than it is.... <view entire article>

Most of you have heard how important it is to include weight lifting as a part of your exercise routine. Obviously any exercise is better than none at all, but if you're not doing some form of weight or resistance training at least a couple times per week you are likely missing out on some important benefits.For instance, in the Journal of Strength & Conditioning Research, they found that lifting weights two times a week can decrease back pain.... <view entire article>

In the past, I've discussed free radicals. In the chemistry world these are molecules in the body with unpaired electrons that will attack nearby cells hoping to steal an electron thereby damaging healthy cells. In your body, the damage of free radicals can be related to numerous diseases from arthritis to cardiovascular disease to cancer or any other form of degeneration. Antioxidants are molecules that will neutralize free radicals by giving them the extra electron they so.... <view entire article>

Last week we began the discussion of how to reduce inflammation in the body in order to help prevent all forms of disease. In our diets, with every bite we eat or sip we take, we are either deflaming or inflaming. Since the diseases that result from chronic inflammation develop very slowly until it's too late, learning to make the right choices can be the biggest factor for better health.Last week we discussed that all grains, even whole.... <view entire article>

If there were one thing that every person could do to promote health and prevent all forms of disease it would be to "deflame". Nearly all experts agree that the common denominator of every disease is inflammation in the body. Chronic inflammation will cause everything from pain and arthritis to cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer's. In the next few weeks, I will be discussing how to decrease inflammation in the body.Most of the process of reducing and avoiding.... <view entire article>

According to an article in The Back Letter, from 1996 to 2006, the total amount spent on prescription pain killers has more than tripled. We now spend $13.2 billion on these medications every year. The researchers are not certain, but they believe that the trend is due to increased utilization as a result of higher rates of obesity, higher perceived stress levels, and a generally poorer American lifestyle. I'm certain all this is true, but as someone.... <view entire article>

In staying true to the back-to-school theme, I found this information. Middle school students who perform more vigorous physical activity than more sedentary students tend to do better in school, according to a new study done by researchers from Michigan StateUniversity and Grand Valley State University. Does this mean that P.E. class is the answer? "Physical education and activity during the school day reduce boredom and help keep kids' attention in the classroom," said Dawn Podulka Coe,.... <view entire article>

With the start of school right around the corner, it's a good time to discuss backpack safety. While I don't believe that backpacks are inherently evil, it is common knowledge that overloaded and improper fitting backpacks can lead to numerous spinal problems and symptoms including back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, and headaches. In fact, the journal Spine reported that 74% of backpack users complained of such symptoms and also had "poorer general health" than those not using.... <view entire article>

As we put on weight and our body changes shape from an ideal anatomy, we assume two basic body shapes based on two different types of fat. We either become an apple shape or a pear shape. There are different health risks and complications with each of these types. But, as I recently learned, there are different strategies on how to combat these types of fat and body shapes and failure to recognize these will make weight.... <view entire article>

A recent study looked at what foods are the worst if you are attempting to lose weight. They found that the food that caused a person to gain more weight per serving than any other food out there was potato chips. They also concluded that eating the right foods and avoiding the wrong foods may be more important than just eating less food in general when it comes to losing weight.In a similar study, researchers looked at what.... <view entire article>

Even the American Cancer Association recognizes that around 80% of cancer is related to environmental toxins - from what we eat, drink, and breathe. According to all sources, despite some futile efforts to control it, the toxic load that we take in only seems to increase. This is why I always recommend an annual detoxification or cleanse to attempt to flush out all the impurities, toxins, and general unwanted goop that builds up in our system over the.... <view entire article>
