“It already feels a lot better.”

That was the comment a patient made as she left the office today.

I saw her once last year, and had not seen her at all this year. I wouldn’t have seen her today except that her regular exercise class teacher was out a couple weeks ago and the substitute teacher was a young ambitious guy and she ‘just had to try and keep up with him.’

At 79 years old these things are to be expected.

Especially if you have been a chiropractic patient since the age of 17 (1954). That’s when she first came in to this office (well it was Haynes-Thompson Chiropractic then, of course). I have only been taking care of her for 30 years.

She was referred in by her husband.

They charged her $18 for that first visit, which included X-rays of her neck, the history, examination and the first chiropractic adjustment.

(Interestingly, that’s only a few dollars less than what Medicare now pays for a visit. But that’s not why I brought it up.)

I share this so that you can connect the dots, and apply the lesson to your own life. This patient lives on her own, doesn’t need a cane or walker, and can exercise with the best of them. Chiropractic care played a role.

101 Benefits of Exercise.38

 

Research overwhelmingly shows that regular exercise lowers the risk for many diseases, enhances the functioning of virtually every physiological system in the human body and improves psychological well-being.

38. Gives you more energy to meet the demands of daily life, and provides you with a reserve to meet the demands of unexpected emergencies.

That is something to meditate long and hard on.

I will Posting a benefit every day from a list put together by Dr. Dave Phillips, M.D. He is an M.D. from Atlanta, GA who specializes in Sports Medicine. As a former All-American swimmer he knows a few things about exercise. He is also on the JuicePlus+ Health Advisory Board. He is also all over YouTube doing videos on JuicePlus+, exercise, and other health-related topics.

This list of benefits of exercise will help you to remember why working out is a priority IF you want to be healthy (if you don’t want to be healthy then you are reading the wrong Blog!)

One Simple Change: The Path That Leads To Health

DSCF2259

Right now – right this very minute – you are somewhere on the spectrum between perfect health and… dead.

More than that, you are moving along that spectrum – in one direction or the other.

If you are someone who wants to move in the direction of health, there are five or six simple changes (physical, chemical or mental/emotional), any ONE of which you could make, that would leverage all your time, energy and money to make huge gains in a (relatively) short time toward your goal: more health.

One Simple Change is an event held in our office now and then. The next event is Wednesday, March 23rd at 6:30 p.m. We will be joined by Carolyn Carman, who is a Health and  Wellness Coach with much valuable experience. There you will learn about simple changes that change everything. Understanding these choices will help you to choose which moves you might want to make to move yourself along that spectrum in the right direction. Her and I have done all the work so that your job becomes much easier and simpler. (We know that you and your situation are unique, and so should your choices be, but… these things can be organized into groups and categories… and we have done that for you.)

The last time we held this event no one contacted me to say they were attended and I cancelled it. Then, on the day of the event, I found out that there were many people who wanted to attend, and planned to attend – they just hadn’t mentioned it. Don’t be that person; be the person who calls or emails to let me know that you want to attend. That way we can manage the crowd and confirm the date.

Follow the Science…To The Wine Cellar!

Drink 5 oz. of red wine each day with supper and get a 9.8% increase in “good” HDL cholesterol. Red wine has 13 times more resveratrol than white wine, FYI.

All this from according to a new study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine. This is “really solid gold-standard research” says Dr. James O’Keefe, chief of preventive cardiology at Saint Luke’s Mid American Heart Institute, who was involved in the study.

A Little Something You Might Not Know About Baking Soda And Kidney Health

“Weight May Affect Onset of Alzheimer’s”

And not in a good way (as you might guess).

That was the title to an article in today’s paper. The byline was: “More midlife pounds meant neurological disorder struck earlier.” It went on to report on a research study.

Two other quick quotes:

“Obesity in midlife has long been suspected of increasing the risk of Alzheimer’s.”

And, “Maintaining a healthy BMI at midlife is likely to have long-lasting protective effects.”

My recent Posts sharing the research reported on by Dr. Slosberg in Idaho a couple of weeks ago follow the same line. There are some high points in terms of good news that should be emphasized since most of the research is on the negative side – things are really bad health-wise in this country when it comes to the consequences of poor dietary choices and lack of exercise (or activity in general as it turns out).

Anyway, here are some very simple and effective ways to reverse all of the negative physiology and manage some of the major risk factors for illness.

1. Stop eating sugar.
2. Stop eating so much carbohydrates as a percentage of the daily diet.
3. FAST! (As is, do #1 and #2 ‘fast’ and FAST). The “new” twist from the new research is that simply extending the time between supper and breakfast longer – to up to 16 hours but 12 would be a big improvement for most of us – confers all the amazing benefits of what most people think of when they hear the word fast. What’s really cool is that ALL of the negative physiological changes (the ones that, collectively lead to Metabolic Syndrome – the precursor to all the killer diseases we slowly die of) are reversed with fasting. That is really cool news, it’s new – in a sense – but, actually the Natural Hygienic folks have been saying these exact same things since before Jethro Kloss and Paul Bragg got on the scene.

Something to think about.

Oh, and #4. Just move – do anything you can to be more active – almost anything is better than what we have right now with way too many people.

Feedback

This...

This…

A JuicePlus+ customer completed their JuicePLus+ Effect Survey yesterday.

Out of 17 questions, he said “yes” to 11. Here are the yeses after only 4 months of taking the JuicePlus TRIO of capsules (Orchard, Garden and Vineyard Blends of fruits, vegetables and berries):

An increase in the amount of water you drink? YES
A reduction in the amount of fast food and/or soft drinks you consume? YES
An improvement in the quality of your sleep? YES
An increase in your energy level? YES
Any weight loss (if you felt you needed to lose weight)? YES
A reduction in the number of cold or flu-like symptoms? YES
(Or has your dentist noticed) healthier gums-things like less bleeding when brushing or flossing, or a healthier pink color? YES
(Or has your hair dresser noticed) indications of healthier hair – things like shinier hair, stronger hair, or more hair growth? YES
Stronger or faster growing nails? YES
Improvements in your complexion, such as smoother skin, clearer skin, a reduction in the oiliness or dryness or your skin, or just and overall healthier glow? YES
An improvement in your general sense of wellbeing? YES

Like many folks some of these changes hadn’t really occurred to him until he was asked, just like chiropractic patient who don’t realize until asked that their breathing or their digestion improved after chiropractic care.

So who is in charge…

Meric-Chart1

Here is a very interesting article that highlights the role of all of those cells in you that are not you. The take-away for most people will be the role of friendly bacteria verses all the others and dietary means of keeping the peace (I mean balance). But what system in the body regulates all other systems? Who is in charge?

Think about that and consider this!
