Feeling Down? Try This

We all have those moments when we feel stressed out or down in the dumps. Here are a few tips that can turn the blues into a rainbow of hope:

1. Talk to a friend. Spending an hour each week with a close friend can do wonders for your stress levels. Simply talking about your life or stressors is a great release.

2. Play with your pet. A study out of the University of Missouri showed an increase in serotonin levels in individuals who spent just a few minutes with an animal.

3. Stretch it out. Tense and stiff muscles can disrupt our day with pain. Stretch upon waking each morning for a few minutes.

We’re passionate about helping our patients enjoy peak levels of health. If it’s been a while since you’ve visited us, book an appointment for a natural, drug-free approach to wellness.

Off the Sidelines and Back in the Game

It’s been estimated that 90 percent of all world-class athletes utilize chiropractic as a means of preventing injuries and boosting their performance capacity. You don’t have to be a pro athlete, however, to benefit from chiropractic. Avid runners and Crossfitters, golfers, and many others can reap the rewards of chiropractic care.

Natural chiropractic care can be an effective way to address a variety of sports injuries. There are numerous potential benefits of getting regular chiropractic care for those engaging in any sport:

• Better performance
• Greater endurance
• Fewer injuries
• Better flexibility
• Greater recovery

If back, neck or knee pain has sidelined you from your favorite sporting activity, we would like to help you get back in the game. Chiropractic care is a drug-free, nonsurgical form of natural health care that allows your body to experience restored function. Plus, it feels fantastic! Contact us today for an appointment.

4 Daily Health Habits

Enhancing your health doesn’t have to mean spending hours each day at the gym or eating like a rabbit. Here are four daily tips to remember:

Drink plenty of pure water. Put the kibosh on soda consumption and opt to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.

Tweak what you eat. Give each meal an upgrade by swapping out a food for one that’s more nutrient-dense. For example, exchange iceberg lettuce for spinach, kale or arugula.

Get sufficient sleep. Adults should aim to get 7-8 hours of quality sleep a night. Sleep plays a critical role in maintaining excellent health.

Move more. As sitting has been called “the new smoking,” it’s important to incorporate plenty of movement into your day. Simply walking more can pay health dividends.

These daily tips work even better when your nervous system is free from vertebral subluxation!
