Natural Health is a “Safe Haven” for Health Truth

Natural Health is a “Safe Haven” for Health Truth

            What we mean by “safe haven” is that our patients and our patient’s families are welcome to ask us about any question related to health and we will find the true answer for them. Many folks are hesitant to talk about health issues with their usual MD because they know of the blowback they will get when discussing natural health issues. Mainstream medicine has its own philosophy on treating patients and much of their information comes from research done by drug companies and drug salesman that, of course, are biased and perhaps not in your best interest. We understand the need for these companies to make money but we don’t agree with the misinformation that causes patients harm to their health and possibly fatal consequences.
            At Natural Health, we are interested in giving our patients truthful information on how to gain and maintain true health so that they can enjoy life and have energy and not suffer through disease processes. Our patients, friends, and family members are always welcome to ask about topics that they have an interest in, to help them on their quest to be truly healthy. There is a lot of information out there on nutrition and diet, some of which is true but much of it is marketing. Another aspect to keep in mind is that everybody is very individual in their needs for nutrition and can only work with certain diets well. Even different stages of life will determine nutritional needs and dietary recommendations. We talk a lot about this during our patient education workshops and help to explain to our listeners the difference between myths and truths in the nutritional and dietary information world. We have these patient education workshops 3 times a month and would love to see you there. These workshops give us the time to talk to the patient’s as long as they need without worrying about the confines of daily patient scheduling.
            So if you have any questions about health matters, questions about products you may have heard about, news articles that seem to be revealing or contradicts something you have believed in or known about for years, or just want to talk about ways of helping your friends and family to get healthier, please let us know and we would be happy to help. Send questions to or give us a call at 217-228-2040.  You can also attend any of our Free Education Workshops every 1st Monday and 3rd Tuesday of every month at the office.  Just call for times and topics -- 217-228-2040

Here are 5 proven ways to reduce or eliminate bloating.

Here are 5 proven ways to reduce or eliminate bloating.

1. People who experience bloating often have increased sensitivity to food in the stomach. Therefore, eating smaller meals can be very useful.

2. Food allergies and intolerances are common causes of bloating. Common offenders include lactose, fructose, wheat, gluten and eggs.

3. Swallowed air can contribute to bloating. A major cause is drinking carbonated beverages, which contain gases that are dissolved in the liquid.

4. If certain foods make you feel bloated or give you gas, try cutting back or avoiding them. Eating fatty foods can also slow digestion and may contribute to bloating for some people.

5. Probiotic supplements can help improve the bacterial environment in the gut, which can help reduce symptoms of gas and bloating.

If you have chronic bloating that causes severe problems in your life, or becomes a lot worse all of a sudden, definitely call and make your appointment to get your Initial Nutrition Consultation.  Mention yo…

Did you know? Regular chiropractic care is ideal to help retrain muscles that are susceptible to injury. Probably one of the greatest myths about chiropractic care is that, once you go, you have to go for the rest of your life. Of course, this isn’t true. However, we do have patients who plan to see us regularly for the rest of their life. So what gives? Five Ways to Use Chiropractic The most common reasons patients choose ongoing chiropractic care include: Relief – Many people begin here.

Maintenance – Regular chiropractic care can help you maintain your progress and avoid a relapse.
Prevention – Periodic chiropractic checkups can help catch new problems early.
Wellness – Simply put, we experience life through our nervous system. That’s why optimizing our spine and nervous system i…

Medical Opposites

Medical Opposites
There is an interesting trend that I have noticed from our many years of clinical practice which I call medical opposites. What I mean by this term is that the mainstream medical advice we hear seems to be the opposite of what the human body actually needs nutritionally or diet wise. There are many of these and I will try to explain them as sensibly as possible. Let’s start with a simple one. For decades now, the mainstream medical wisdom has told us not to eat salt because it supposedly causes high blood pressure. I would agree that the use, or overuse, of refined salt can cause problems. Our bodies need sea salt or mineral salt to work correctly and that distinction is never made. Sea salt is necessary for our kidneys to work correctly, for good adrenal function to handle stress, for lymphatic fluid drainage and cerebral spinal fluid flow, to keep the proper acid/base balance in the body, and many other functions. Many of us older people will remember salt pills at t…
