Raw Food – Eat To Give Your Body Life!

Mention raw food to people, and the first thing they will think of is something like trail mix or even more extreme, such as eating raw chicken.  The raw foods we already eat and are familiar with (so we just need to eat more of them, and then add new ones we learn about) are things like salads, fruits, nuts (no, not the monster tub of roasted, salted nuts from Costco), and vegetables.  However, if you scratch below the surface, there’s much, much more to raw food than meets the eye (or the tongue, more appropriately).  There’s a cornucopia of gastronomic delights waiting for you in the raw food world.  The next time you travel to a new city, do a search before you go and find the raw restaurants for the area and go eat at one – it will be an eye-opening, mouth-watering experience.  But, before we go too much further, let’s start with:  why raw food?

Chiropractic Care Can Help With Weight Loss

You probably know that chiropractic care is great for adjustments, especially of the spine, and maybe you even know that it can help with headaches, sleep difficulties, respiratory problems, and a slew of other health concerns.
Chiropractors focus on the central nervous system, since a misalignment can “choke off” nerves, which in turn can have an impact on every part of the body. However, many people don’t know that chiropractic care and weight loss (or management) is another viable treatment program.
Maybe it’s not a sluggish metabolism or those cheat days make you plateau. Maybe it’s an issue that a chiropractor can address.
First, you must recognize that just because you used to be heavy and may have lost weight the old-fashioned way or even with surgery, that doesn’t mean your body snapped back to perfect health. Carrying excessive weight can do a number on every part of your body, but especially the bones and joints.
Some chiropractors even specialize in overweight/obese patients because they know all too well what excessive weight can do to the spine. Losing the weight is only half the battle; there may be a host of issues below the surface you’re unaware of.

How To Avoid Getting Sick During The Holidays

 Do you get sick around the same time each year? The stress of the holidays (if not carefully managed) can wreak havoc on your immune system. When you feel stressed out, your immune system’s ability to fight off harmful bacteria and infections is reduced. The stress hormone cortisol can suppress the effectiveness of your immune system, and many people become more prone to a not-so-healthy coping mechanism like eating inflammatory foods, smoking, and getting less sleep as a result.

Feeling Great This Holiday Season

The holidays often bring plenty of cheer…and a healthy dose of seasonal stress. Between the travel, parties, and shopping, there are a lot of demands placed on your time, your mind, and your body, and all this commotion can result in muscle spasms and the re-occurrence of familiar aches and pains. For many people, these aches show up in two distinct areas – the low back and the neck and shoulders. Sound familiar?

The Gut Brain Connection

If you have ever had “butterflies” or have been stressed to the point of your stomach hurting, you’ve experienced the gut/brain connection firsthand.
