Gratitude: Counting Blessings

Hello Everyone in Natural Health Nation.
I hope that you all had a great Thanksgiving weekend and are not too stuffed from all the overeating. It was a great time to catch up with relatives and friends and count your blessings. Hopefully everyone got along well and perhaps even let go of past problems and strife. Thanksgiving is a kind of warm-up holiday for the Christmas season and everything that goes along with that. I hope and pray that you all do not stress out during this season but if you do feel stressed, we have great nutritional support to help your body handle it. Drenamin is one of our top sellers to help the adrenal glands which are your stress handling gland. Also Kava Forte is a great herbal supplement to help relax with, kind of the opposite of coffee. Come by the office or give us a call at 217 – 228 – 2040. Since we’re into December now, our theme has changed to one of discussing Stress, Fatigue and Sleep.

We deal with this a lot with our patients and have helped lot…

Why is the Nutritional Testing We Do So Important?

Why is the Nutritional Testing We DoSo Important?
The answer to this is simple. People spend millions of dollars per year on vitamins, oils, super foods, super drinks, etc. and yet our health in this country is getting worse. This is because these people, who are trying to help their health, are listening to marketing and advertising information rather than knowing exactly what nutrition they need and how they need it. There is a lot to know in the nutrition field on the right kinds of nutrition so that it nourishes the body and helps the body to heal, and being able to get the patient’s body to a state where it will absorb the nutrition and utilize it correctly. In doing our Nutrition Response Testing technique, we are able to learn from the body what state it is in. We can then determine what steps are needed to get the body working towards true health and vitality. Normally when patients first come in, they must go through a period of detox and drainage of all the junk and toxins the…

Tight Muscles? You Need Chiropractic

Did you realize that tight muscles are one of the first signs of pinched nerves?  Muscles are controlled by nerves, so if your muscles are staying tight, more than likely, you have pinched nerves and need Chiropractic adjustments to remove this nerve impingement.  Getting a massage, going to the spa, relaxing with a book, etc. are great practices to help muscles relax but if they just re-tighten, the nerves that control them are being irritated.  Chiropractic adjusting helps by removing the cause of the impingement which then helps the muscle to be able to relax and work in coordination with the other muscles of the body for normal motion and movement.  When these muscle groups get out of coordination, joints suffer as they are not moving correctly.  A good example is the knee, where it is meant to move in one plane of motion but if the muscles that control its motion are tighter on one side than the other, a twist type motion occurs and irritates the joint causing pain and degeneration. T…

The Need to Be Right

The Need to Be Right
I’m sure that you have talked with people and discovered their need to be right. Everyone wants others to emotionally feel close to them and that what they are doing, whatever it is, is the right way to do it or is best. Many people we have talked to, have been doing things a certain way for years, or decades, or even for generations. In their mind all that time makes it seem right. The question to ask though-is it? Many of these notions are based on outdated or uninformed ideas and may have even worked well for a while but the end result is not turning out as expected. It may also take some time, as in years or decades, to see the results of a wrong idea or a wrong action. You may have heard the expression about being “happy in your misery” or “being dead right”. These are expressions about people thinking they are doing the right thing but in reality, they’re not. Another part of this “need to be right” psychology is those of a professional nature. For instance, y…

A Great story about Autism children

Doesn’t Qualify for Special Ed Class Any Longer I have found that utilizing Nutrition Response Testing® along with Chiropractic gets better results with my patients. I would like to share two of these cases, since the results had a profound effect not only for the patients but for their family as well. I had a young boy that came in to my practice who was in a special preschool.  He was 4 and he was diagnosed with autism. He was an extremely picky eater.  His mom couldn’t really get him to eat very much and he was on a very limited diet.   The mother brought him in to see me.  Upon completing an initial examination, I told the mother right away, “I don’t think your child is autistic.  There is something going on with him, but I don’t see it as autism.” He was very bright although he did have some behavioral issues.   Through Nutrition Response Testing I found that his gall bladder had some nutritional deficiencies.  The protocol called for giving him gall bladder support in the form of who…

Miracle Anti-Wrinkle Cream

Miracle Anti-Wrinkle Cream
The key ingredient in this product, are stem cells extracted from Eryngium Maritinium (EM), a marine plant. Thanks to a scientific breakthrough in 2010 when scientists at the Plant Cell Institute finally succeeded in developing a process that would extract plant stem cells without damaging them, we are now starting to see the benefits of their research. Marine plants are categorized as “extremeophiles”, as they are able to survive and adapt to extreme, unstable environments. They are able to change, repair and provide protection from similar conditions that our skin faces every day. Specifically, EM is a plant that is able to protect itself against sun radiation, dehydration and oxidation. Clinically, stem cell extracts from this plant have been observed to be effective in addressing aging disorders of the skin, especially superficial wrinkles and rough and dry skin. In my opinion, this is true nutrition directly for the skin. Aging disorders of the skin are a c…
