The Youthful Skin Diet

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Total body wellness effects more than your weight. Your dietary choices are also visible on your skin! The face you show the world should is representative of what you put in your body day in, day out. Sure, skincare is helpful in keeping your skin healthy & youthful, but the real secret to having clear, glowing skin is to treat it through nutrition. Your skin is your body’s largest organ. Our nutrition effects our bodies on a cellular level, and your skin woes are your body’s visible response to good […]

Keep Your Head Up (Literally)

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

You’ve probably heard the phrase “keep your head up” or “keep your chin up,” meaning to maintain high spirits in the face of something difficult and to persevere. Well, guess what? It’s backed by science: maintaining erect posture (sitting up or standing straight, chin raised, shoulders back) actually helps your body respond to stress and manage your moods.  Many studies have been performed based on the hypothesis that muscular states relate to emotions, but these studies have mostly focused on facial expressions (smiling does make you happier, by the way!).

Treating Allergies with Chiropractic

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

Spring is here, and with it (eventually) comes freshly blossomed flowers, leafy trees and new green grass. This is what we have waited all winter for; the moment we can open our windows, hang sheets out to dry and plan our gardens for the upcoming season. However, those of us with allergies perceive all of these activities not with excitement, but with dread. Sufferers of seasonal allergies experience itchy eyes, skin irritation, runny noses and general inflammation this time of year. Whether you experience mild allergies or have a severe […]

Do What You Love & Love What You Do

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate love in a variety of forms. It’s marketed as the day to cherish romantic love, but that’s not all you should appreciate on February 14th. Valentine’s Day is a great time to reflect on the role of love in your life, starting with yourself. How you treat yourself mentally and physically is the foundation for even beginning to find your ideal partner. This Valentine’s Day (and why not every day?), take time to reflect on your relationship with yourself. Much of what I […]

Gift Yourself this Christmas

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

It’s Christmastime–the season of giving. Though many of us are charitable all year round, we are extra generous this time of year. We reflect on what we are grateful for then show this gratitude in the form of gift-giving. We donate last year’s coats to charity, give friends thoughtful gifts and drop off a little extra money here and there to the Salvation Army outside our favorite stores. Giving becomes second-nature around Christmas–a wonderful thing–but sometimes we give too much of ourselves and lose sight of what is important. So this […]

This Christmas, like so many in years past, is clearly brimming with new technology.

Winterize your Lifestyle

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Whether you like it or not, the snow is coming–and soon. The clouds turn grey, our driving schedules change and temperatures drop to downright freezing. It’s normal to feel a little sluggish once the cold hits; it’s harder to motivate yourself to drive to the gym in the mornings or after work, you feel less ambitious about making healthy choices with the lack of fresh options and the lack of vitamin D can make you a little sad. There is an endless list of little inconveniences that come along with frigid […]

Healthy Reminders for Back to School

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

It’s that time of year again: back to school. This means something different for all of my patients–some of you are teachers, others are parents of young children or are even helping move your son or daughter back to college after a long, hopefully relaxing summer. By now, the newness has worn off and routine has started to hopefully set in. With routine comes realizations of added stress, posture changes, back/neck pain or even sports injuries. Regardless of your role this fall, back-to-school is a time to zero in on preventative measures […]

Yoga Mindset for Optimal Health

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , ,

It is widely accepted that a regular yoga practice has a multitude of health benefits, from helping soothe physical discomfort to alleviating emotional distress. I often praise and suggest the physical practice of yoga for my patients for these very reasons. What you may not realize, however, is that the practice of yoga extends far beyond the studio and off of the mat. Yoga, when applied to your well being as a whole, can revolutionize the way you view the world, yourself and your health goals. Of course, I recommend […]

Endorphins & Enjoying Life

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Thanks to extensive research, the benefits of spinal manipulation are easier to measure through scientific evidence. If you’re a patient of mine, you know how good your body feels after being adjusted. But if you’re curious about why that might be or just curious about chiropractic in general, you might wonder what happens to your body after leaving my office. Scientists are able to study the neurochemical benefits of spinal manipulation and they found that chiropractic adjustments cause a surge of beta-endorphins. Beta-endorphins have been found to produce a wide range of […]
