Health Tip Of The Week...

Good Health Happens On Purpose
Those seeking health answers from outside the realm of their own decisions are looking in the wrong place.  Health doesn't happen by accident.  Lasting health results from a lifetime of informed, deliberate lifestyle decisions aligned with nature's principles of health, not the distorted version of health promoted by mainstream medicine.

Top Ten Worst Foods - Part 1 of 4

According to Dr. Michael Gossett, knowing which foods damage the nervous system is a new approach to determining which foods are the culprits that should be avoided the most.  If you want to have as healthy a functioning nervous system as possible;  in addition to regular chiropractic care, these are the top 10 foods to avoid:
#1 Hydrogenated Oils (Trans fats/ artificial fats, olestra)
It has been known by the food industry for over forty years that trans fats are extremely unhealthy.  Hydrogenated oils lead to systemic inflammation, cancer, heart disease,  hardening of the arteries and hormone imbalances.  These oils are man made, very similar in composition to plastic, and block the absorption of vitamins A, D, E, K, and the healthy essential fatty acids (Omega-3).
#2 Artificial Sweeteners (Aspartame, Splenda, and Sweet & Low)
All should be avoided.  Aspartame, the active ingredient in NutraSweet and many brands of diet soda, is by far the most dangerous. NutraSweet breaks down into methanol, formic acid and formaldehyde.  NutraSweet's toxicity mimics autoimmune disorders such as multiple sclerosis, lupus, and chronic fatigue.  There has been an incredible explosion of people diagnosed with these terrible diseases in recent years.  Also, aspartame is a known neurological excitotoxin which means it has the ability to severely damage the brain and nervous system.

The Bottom Line…The Bottom Line…The Bottom Line…

People wrongly believe that health is something that happens TO them rather than something that happens THROUGH them.  So they remain stuck in a pattern of self-inflicted sickness and disease while hoping that some other organization, government or health care plan will come to their rescue.  Health happens through you when you embrace healthy eating habits, regular exercise, sufficient quality rest, and lifestyle changes that include regular chiropractic care.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
