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 lots of folks with these problems. With our three-pronged approach of nutritional support for the organs and glands, chiropractic adjustments to help with nerve flow and getting the organs to work at optimum, and our energy work to help the body channel its energy through the nerves to areas of need for the body to work at optimum, we can help anyone with these problems. I have included this week, an article on Gratitude and how positive emotions and thoughts help us to heal ourselves and stay in a positive energy state. If you watch the news all the time, or listen to bad stories from people, or other sources of negative information, it will drag your body’s energy down and lend you towards immune system issues. We see this with people that are under constant stress and are always having colds and flu.

We have the ability to choose to listen to good and positive information and keep our energy up. This is why our approach to health works so much better as were always working towards more energy in the body and a positive Outlook on future health and longevity. We want to see you at optimum health, not just getting by. Be grateful and happy, and don’t let yourself get stressed out during the holidays.  Came a crossed a wonderful gratitude article HERE that will  keep you feeling warm inside as we head into the holidays.

Get Healthy, Stay Healthy, and Live Well

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…

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…

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…
