Health Tip Of The Week...

Please Take Note…
That, with regard to your own health, you could be your own best friend or your own worst enemy.  There are no miracle cures…there haven't been any yet and there aren't likely to be any.  There are no pills that will make you healthy.  Good health takes discipline.  To be your own doctor you don't have to be an MD.  Just know your body and tune into it.

Top Ten Worst Foods - Part 4 of 4

Here's the final installment of the list of foods to avoid compiled by Dr. Ian Hoffman:
#10 Dairy Products
Many commercial milk cows in the U.S. are injected with a terrible chemical called recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH or sometimes rBST) despite being banned in Canada and the European Union.  This growth hormone is designed to make each cow produce more milk which leads to high rates of infection in their udders, leading the cows to require more and more antibiotics.  The milk is then pasteurized and homogenized. Pasteurization and homogenization alters the composition and nutrient value of milk.  We can't even utilize the calcium from cow's milk and there are plenty of other ways to get your vitamin D.  Kids are especially sensitive to milk (and cheese).  We are the only species on the planet who continue to drink milk after age two.  What's more, we are drinking milk which is designed for a different species!  Milk has a major role in the climbing rates of chronic ear infections, allergies, and asthma in children, as well as diabetes, skin conditions, and upper respiratory conditions in adults.
What do all of the items on the top 10 list have in common?
All of these food substances can damage the nervous system.  Having a healthy diet is important, but if your nervous system is unhealthy, your body will not digest the food properly and you won't get the nutrition and energy you need to function at your best.

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

Most of the Top 10 Worst Foods profoundly disrupt the delicate balance of insulin, glucagon and cortisol which are involved in regulating blood sugar, stress, water and electrolyte balance.  Eating these foods even in mild amounts over an extended period can lead to diabetes, obesity, heart problems, stroke and cancer.  Eating fresh and natural produce with regular chiropractic care will keep your nervous system healthy and transform the way your body functions.

  • 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. ...
