Our diets aren’t perfect. We can do our best to eat whole foods, plenty of fruits and vegetables and natural sources of protein, but the truth is that our bodies are likely still lacking in nutrients. Vitamins and minerals improve cellular function. What does that mean? It’s not as complex as you think: when our cells are not functioning at optimal levels, we can feel fatigued, have poor memory, and become stressed or anxious. In addition to needing plenty of vitamins and minerals, our bodies also crave probiotics, omega-3 fatty […]

Finally, summer is here and the warm weather came with it (thankfully!). To most of us, this means we are stepping up our workout game and working to be in better overall health for the beach or to enjoy our favorite activities like hiking, swimming, and playing outdoor sports.

Cardiovascular training brings great benefits, including improvements in insulin sensitivity, better cholesterol, stable […]

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 […]

The New Non-Drug Guidelines for Low Back Pain

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

The American College of Physicians has updated their guidelines in treating lower back pain. For the ACP to release new guidelines, this means that new studies citing hours, weeks, months and even years of research have proven past techniques less effective than originally thought, bringing new treatment options to light and to the forefront of primary care. Unsurprisingly, the new guidelines strongly discourage the use of opioids for the treatment of lower back pain. Instead, they highly recommend seeking conservative non-drug treatment through lifestyle changes, chiropractic and overall wellness. There have […]

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.

Life in Motion: The Importance of Mobility

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

With all this new snow, out comes the shovel and the added muscle soreness that comes with it. A typical (but dreaded) chore like shoveling snow is a normal, everyday reminder of your mobility and range of motion or lack thereof. For many of us, the words “mobility” and “range of motion” are associated with aging; we think of limitations in these areas as being exclusively assigned to older individuals, maybe after a surgery or two, or just in the combination of aging more and exercising less. The truth is that […]
