Why would a newborn get adjusted?


          As the baby develops during the nine-month term, the uterus gets pretty crowded. The spine is in a big C curve and the middle of this curve is around the 6th thoracic vertebra. If this vertebra is not in correct alignment, the nerve there gets irritated and this nerve controls how the stomach works. This problem can lead to colic in the newborn and is easily remedied by a chiropractic adjustment. The biggest need for a newborn adjustment, though, is when forceps or clamps are used in the delivery process, along with twisting or pulling on the newborns head and neck. As you can imagine, this can cause all kinds of misalignment issues in the cervical and upper thoracic vertebra. Not getting these subluxations corrected will lend towards later symptoms and spinal problems, like headaches and asthma.

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.

However, we do have patients who plan to see us regularly for the rest of their life. So what gives?

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…
