Health Tip Of The Week...

Aspirin Does Not Prevent Cardiovascular Disease Deaths
A 2010 article in the British Medical Journal (BMJ 2010;340:c1805) refers to a recent meta-analysis of six prior studies into the risks and benefits of a daily aspirin in people considered "at risk" of cardiovascular disease, found that heart benefits of the treatment were minimal, and were far outweighed by the increased risk of potentially fatal gastrointestinal bleeding.

Top Ten Worst Foods - Part 2 of 4

In addition to regular chiropractic care, if you want to have as healthy a functioning nervous system as possible, and who wouldn't?...here are more from the top 10 foods to avoid:
#3 Refined Sugar (White sugar products)
Refined sugars are found in about any product that is boxed, bottled, and canned.  With no real nutritional value, refined sugar robs your body of vitamins and minerals, and increases oxidative stress on the body leading to chronic disease, such as obesity, cancer, heart disease, stroke and auto immune disorders.
 #4 Soda (regular AND diet) and Sweetened Fruit Drinks
Avoiding artificial sweeteners and refined sugars means NO sugary beverages like soda! Loaded with 8 or more teaspoons of sugar or artificial sweeteners, caffeine and phosphoric acid; drinking only 1 can of soda per day has been shown to lead to 10 pounds of excess fat per year!  Drinking soda also increases your risk of osteoporosis, leads to excessive sugar intake, hypoglycemia, diabetes, obesity, and heart disease, not to mention tooth decay and digestive issues due to the high acid content.
#5 High Fructose Corn Syrup
Found in almost everything packaged or processed!  This substance leads to diabetes, obesity and heart disease.  Recent evidence suggests that extracting the sweet substance from corn involves the heavy metal mercury which has been linked to autism, severe nerve system disorders, autoimmune diseases, Parkinson's disease, and dementia.

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

Health is something that must be pursued by taking personal responsibility.  Health is not and can not be achieved with the flick of a magic (drug) wand.  It cannot be injected into you with a needle.  It can only be achieved by you taking control over your own health.  Take responsibility for the results you create with each and every decision you make:  Decisions about food, stress, sleep, the use of your mind, the use of your free time, personal care products, chiropractic, etc.

  • "I had become very frustrated with the way I was feeling. My headaches made me very tired and I would frequently have to nap after work or school instead of doing things I enjoyed. Occasionally, I would miss work because the pain was so severe."

  • 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. ...
