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. This is one reason why low back adjustments will help with knee problems.
            It’s also important to realize that some of the same nerves from the spine go to the organs and glands of the body. 
Again, if these nerves are impinged, then there is a lack of normal function and coordination with the other organs and glands of the body. 
This leads to what we call dys-ease or a lack of proper function. When this condition is allowed to go on for a long time, the body may develop an actual disease or medical condition of some type.
 Most folks that have a diagnosis of a disease, know that there was problems going on for months or years before the diagnosis. These problems are like the red lights on the dashboard of your car telling of the problem but not really telling what the problem is. Reoccurring tight muscles are one of these tell-tale signs. Regular Chiropractic adjustments are essential to being able to handle the stresses of this fast paced society we live in. The body needs every advantage it can get to heal itself and coordinate the energy it has to keep itself healthy. The human body is so amazing in its ability to heal itself, but the barriers must be removed. Schedule your Chiropractic adjustment today and return to health!

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…

Salt is good for you?!

Salt is good for you?! Perhaps you’ve heard some of the buzz in the health blog world about salt. Perhaps you are asking yourself, salt is good for me? Yep, it is! The idea is contrary to the pretty blatant lies told to us by the American Heart Association… and thank goodness, because salt makes food taste amazing. There is no need to suffer through bland, unsalted meals in the sake of health.
Here are 12 reasons why salt is good for you:
1. The premise that salt leads to hypertension has never been scientifically supported. On the contrary, studies show that a reduced-sodium diet leads to health issues. In one study, subjects consuming less than 2300 mg. (the recommended daily allowance) of sodium per day had significantly higher mortality rates (meaning a higher risk of death) than the subjects consuming 2300 mg. or more sodium per day.
2. Salt aids blood sugar control by improving insulin sensitivity. A low-salt diet increases insulin resistance and even moderate dietary salt restrictio…

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…
