I volunteered at the Everett High School yesterday to hang out with a hundred kids and a bunch of adults at Challenge Day. I highly recommend it if you ever get the chance.

A Grain of (Celtic Sea) Salt: Research on Exercise and the Brain

Filed under: Uncategorized — doctordilday @ 11:51 am

This study supports the idea that we need variety in our lives – if you need research to be convinced of that. Recent studies have highlighted the value of High Intensity Interval Training (HIT). Now, in rats, anyway – thus the “grain of salt reference” – the need and value of sustained aerobic exercise is highlighted.

Tai chi offers both, of course, which is one of many reasons it is the perfect exercise. But… you can use the news to help you in wide variety of health decisions: there are lots and lots of ways to get sustained cardiovascular exercise.

Start where you are. Find out what heart rate would put in your training zone. Find an activity that does that. And do it for extended periods of time – for humans “extended” would probably be in the more-than-40 minutes-up-to-about-90 minutes range. (And you might have to build up to that point but that’s fine.)

Backpacks and Back Pain In Kids

12068591_911504408886665_4532451762543042370_o

Here is an article on the subject.

The Bottom Line: The weight of the backpack should not exceed 15% of the weight of the kid.

That’s the guideline. But the issue raises the issues of posture and strength in kids. Both should be addressed by parents and by their chiropractors.

We weigh the bags (some are ridiculously heavy). Often in doing so we find that the backpacks are not well built, or not adjusted properly, or simply don’t or can’t be fitted to the child well.

It’s something that is easy to fix and is sometimes a big deal. No need to let the kid suffer because of something so easy to take care of.

Cucs in the News

Filed under: Uncategorized — doctordilday @ 1:40 pm

cucumbers-group

Today’s paper had a story about how people are getting sick, it may have said dying, because of contaminated cucumbers.

Imagine a machine attached to your kitchen sink that could produce water with a pH of 2.5, low enough to kill almost any bug on the planet in 30 seconds or less. With this machine you could rise all the fruits and vegetables before you eat them and be confident that they were safely cleaned.

In the news these past weeks there have also been stories about a city back East that seems to have overlooked high and unsafe levels of lead in the water they send through their citizen’s taps.

What if that same machine that kills harmful bacteria on the food you want to eat also filters the water so you don’t have to worry about lead content? (Or more than a dozen other common contaminates?)

There is a machine that does those two tricks and many other tricks. You could get one. Call us and we will help you: (425) 348-5207.

Then you can clean your food and eat it without worry. You can feed clean, safe, food to your children without worry. Call us.
