Health Tip Of The Week...

The chiropractic paradigm:  so simple, so powerful, so misunderstood. 
The brain houses the control centers for the function of every single cell, tissue and organ in the body.  The control centers of the brain communicate with and receive information from the body by way of the nervous system.  If that communication system is interfered with in any way, the body CAN NOT function the way it was designed to function.

Ten Ways to Wellness - Part 1 of 5

The past series on the Top Ten Worst Foods received so much attention and praise that we asked Dr. Ian Hoffman for another short series of articles and he's agreed.  Since the last series was on what to avoid, this series is on the Top Ten Things you can do to promote your long term health and well being.
Here's the first installment of the list of things you can do to be as healthy as you can be now…and for the rest of your life:
#1 Regular Chiropractic Care
First and foremost, we must ask the question, "Why do people get sick?"
All symptoms of disease are related to stress: physical, chemical, and/or emotional.  Physical stress is caused by car accidents, sports, or a sedentary lifestyle.  Chemical stress is caused by tobacco, alcohol, drugs  (including pharmaceuticals) and a poor diet. Emotional stress is caused by relationship issues, money worries, or social pressures.  All types stress have a negative effect on our body but our nervous system often can adapt to some of that stress so not everything makes us sick.  Of course we can never eliminate stress from our lives completely, but a healthy lifestyle that includes practicing the 10 Ways to Wellness and avoiding the Top Ten Worst Foods will reduce the total amount of stress you experience.  At the same time, regular chiropractic care keeps your nervous system healthy and better able to adapt to the stressors you can't control.  A healthy lifestyle and regular chiropractic care is all you need on your journey in creating a healthier future!

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

The traditional medicine approach to health is in attempting to deliver relief, not in health development or the elimination of disease.  Treating symptoms endlessly with pills, powders, potions, lotions, surgery and chemicals has never brought about a cure, let alone addressed a cause.  The American people are becoming more and more disenchanted with this approach and are finally beginning to demand that the cause of disease be addressed and eliminated.
