Taking care in Winter weather
February 7th, 2017
The onset of winter does not signal the end
of exercise and outdoors activities. There's plenty of skiing and snowboarding
available in the Northeast, the American Rockies, across Canada, and even in
Southern California. For those who like their exercise with less dramatic
velocity and acceleration, walking and running continue to be possible in
winter. The key to successful exercise throughout the winter, beyond the will

New Year's resolutions, beloved by some and loathed by
others, are an integral part of the New Year's tradition. We wish our
relationship to the new year to be one of joy and anticipation, and we hope
that we'll be able to forge some new habits and accomplish some new things that
will further the welfare and well-being of families and ourselves.
For most of us, exercise and a healthy diet are at the top
of our New Year's res

As autumn’s outdoor temperatures begin to moderate, many of
us look forward to opportunities for vigorous cardio respiratory activities
that we put aside in the heat of the summer. It's much easier to hike in the
spring and fall, even in the peak afternoon hours, because the sun’s intensity
is less harsh.
Hiking is tremendous fun and is a wonderful form of vigorous
exercise for the entire family, including the youngest through

Over $80 billion are spent each year on drugs to relieve heartburn, acid reflux, bloating, gas, irritable bowel, constipation, diarrhea and other digestive disorders. These symptoms of abnormal digestive are becoming increasingly more prevalent in our society. Science and research have shown that chiropractic care offers a powerful solution to this modern-day epidemic.The nervous system controls digestive function from several different regions.
Mindfulness Brings Balance to Life
August 22nd, 2016
Mindfulness has become a very hot topic and is
now consistently featured in mass media. This may be considered a good thing,
as more and more of us allow ourselves to become distracted throughout the day
by the never-ending onslaught of text messages, emails, and the pings of
calendar reminders. Instead of turning off our phones, we persist in peering
down at them, and our awareness of the world around us becomes dim and dimmer
Chiropractic care and cyclic vomiting syndrome
August 22nd, 2016
Cyclic vomiting syndrome (CVS) is characterized by
recurrent, discrete episodes of nausea and vomiting separated by intervals of
normal health. An underlying cause is
often not apparent. Onset is most common during preschool or early school years
though CVS may begin at any age, from infancy onward.
Considering the anatomical relationship between the upper
cervical spine and the dura, as well as, the link between myodu

Constipation is classically defined as having a bowel
movement fewer than three times a week. In reality, one or more bowel movements
a day are healthy and anything les should be a concern. With constipation,
stools are usually hard, dry, small in size, and difficult to eliminate. Some
people who are constipated find it painful to pass a stool and often experience
straining, bloating, and the sense of a full bowel.
Constipation is a s

Many of us want to
improve our level of fitness, but don't know what to do or how to begin. Others
have begun a fitness program, but don't know what types of activities to
include to make their program more comprehensive and healthful. Yet others have
been exercising for a while, but don't know how to keep going or how to make
their exercise activities appropriately challenging. Most of us have
encountered such questions and the lack of

Chiropractic Boosts Immunity
May 11th, 2016
The nervous system and immune system are
hardwired and work together to create optimal responses for the body to adapt
and heal appropriately. Neural dysfunctions due to spinal misalignments are
stressful to the body and cause abnormal changes that lead to a poorly
coordinated immune response. Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to boost
the coordinated responses of the nervous system and immune system.
The autonomic nervous syst

decades past, very few urban kids had ever even heard of a parsnip, a fennel
bulb, or a bunch of kale. In those days, fruit and vegetable consumption
typically consisted of apples, bananas, corn, potatoes, peas, and lettuce.
Oranges were infrequent and grapefruit was a rarity. Today a veritable
cornucopia of produce is available year-round, providing the possibility for
substantial variety in a family's daily diet. But with the excep

Usually, this question is asked when other methods of treatment have been tried
