Tips to live a healthier you!

1. Copy your kitty: Learn to do stretching exercises when you wake up. It boosts circulation and digestion, and eases back pain.

Studies show that eating a proper breakfast is one of the most positive things you can do if you are trying to lose weight. Breakfast skippers tend to gain weight. A balanced breakfast includes fresh fruit or fruit juice, a high-fiber breakfast cereal, low-fat milk or yoghurt, whole-wheat toast, and a boiled egg.

“It is easier to stay healthy than it is go get healthy”

 

DOCTORED

 

By Dr. Mercola

Did you know that while the United States makes up only five percent of the world's population, we consume over 50 percent of all the world's pharmaceutical drugs?

This sobering statistic and much more is revealed in Jeff Hays' documentary film, Doctored.

The primary focus of the film is on the chiropractic profession and its long-standing struggle to be recognized as authentic health professionals. In the 1980's, chiropractors were still by and large viewed as quacks whose treatments were unscientific and potentially dangerous. Worse yet, chiropractors were also derided as 'cultists' at a time when Charles Manson and his cult followers wrought terror in California, and Jim Jones persuaded his followers to drink the Kool-Aid spiked with deadly poison.

Yes, chiropractors were tossed in with this charming lot!

However, this bizarre consensus reality in which chiropractors were deemed "unscientific cultists" on par with some of the most heinous criminals in US history was, as the evidence shows, doctored by the medical industry at the behest of Big Pharma. As stated in the beginning of the film:

"There's been a deliberate campaign to label anybody who doesn't sell or distribute drugs, surgery or radiation as a quack."

Doctored includes eye-opening interviews not only with chiropractic and osteopathic doctors (including myself), it also talks to surgeons, MD's, pharmaceutical sales reps, and high-profile patients like Olympic Gold Medalist Picabo Street and John Stockton from the NBA Hall of Fame who regularly challenged my favorite player Michael Jordan, as well as regular patients who went looking for a better way to achieve health.

All in all, the testimony spells out the point of the film, which is that conventional medicine, backed and ruled by the pharmaceutical industry, is corrupt to the core and frequently does more harm than good, while simultaneously protecting their business and hiding its ineffectiveness by suppressing legitimate, safe, and effective alternative or complementary practices such as chiropractic.

At Osseo Chiropractic and Health Center, we believe the documentary film “DOCTORED” should be seen by everyone so we now have it showing in our office so you can see it for yourself!!

Chiropractic care for Infants and Children

Because chiropractic care and other natural therapies are so safe, you can enjoy their benefits throughout your entire life. And so can your children.

Many different scientific studies have found that spinal adjustments to be “remarkably safe” and “effective”. To learn more about the safety and validity of chiropractic care for children, please check out our chiropractic research page. One of the reasons chiropractic care has an undeniably solid track record is because we help our patients avoid dangerous drugs and risky surgical procedures.

Many parents ask me when they think their children can start chiropractic care. I tell them that even newborns can receive adjustments. Childbirth tends to be rough on an infant’s body, and the sooner things are “straightened out” the better.

Even Natural Childbirth Can Have a Negative Impact on an Infant’s Spine

I’ve been adjusting my four children since the day of their births. I’ve seen their births, and some have been rough. I know that checking them regularly and providing chiropractic adjustments as needed is one of the best things I can do to keep them healthy and feeling good.

Some studies connect colic, unusual crying, ear infections, poor appetite, and erratic sleep habits can be signs of spinal imbalances. Our children are exceptionally healthy. I thank God for their good health and for the honor of helping them achieve superior health.

Please remember…

Not All Adjustments Are Done the Same

Although I always provide careful and precise adjustments, when I adjust infants I am particularly gentle and use only light pressure. I won’t ever separate children from their family. In fact, I’ll usually have mom or dad hold the baby while the adjustment is done.

Another key point to understand is…

Chiropractic Care Is Not Just For Pain Relief.

In fact, the major benefits of chiropractic adjustments are not felt. When the spine and body are “balanced”, the positive effect on your nervous system influences your whole body in a healthy way. Adjustments help to “relax” your nervous system, which allows your whole body to function at a more optimal level.

If your child has subluxations (spinal misalignments), their nervous system and body will operate in an “irritated” or “agitated state”. This can manifest as a multitude of different health problems. When your child receives a chiropractic adjustment, their nervous system and body can “relax” and “balance”.

Improve Your Golf Game with Chiropractic Treatment!!

By Dr. Rachelle Kirk

Image of a golf ballWouldn’t it be great if you could shave two strokes off your handicap through chiropractic care? I wish I could promise that. The truth is that golf is a complex, dynamic game that requires the routine participation of nearly every joint in the human body. A perfect golf swing requires thousands of tiny muscle fibers, precise timing and control, flexibility and proper alignment of the entire musculoskeletal system. Chiropractic care can be instrumental in achieving all of this, as well as guarding you against injury.

Because many of today’s golfers spend a significant portion of their time seated (i.e., driving the car, surfing the internet), their flexibility can become increasingly limited. By providing special attention to the joints through chiropractic care, proper joint mechanics can be restored, resulting in an increased range of motion. Following chiropractic adjustments, tight muscles are lengthened and returned to their normal positions. A chiropractor’s trained eye can spot whether one shoulder is higher than the other, whether one hip is higher than the other, whether your neck is tilted to a particular side, or any other asymmetry. Chiropractic care improves balance and coordination by aligning the bones of the body into their proper position, thereby restoring symmetry.

Golf injuries most commonly occur because of a decrease in flexibility, balance, and coordination. A lack of joint proprioception (the ability of the brain to recognize the body’s location in space) also contributes to sprain and strain injuries. Chiropractic care will return bones to their normal juxtaposition (thereby reducing nerve interference) to restore normal nerve transmission and increase joint proprioception.

In the course of a golfer’s lifetime, experiencing occasional injury is inevitable. However, by maintaining proper flexibility, join mechanics, balance, and coordination, the likelihood and severity of injuries can be decreased. Golfers who routinely undergo chiropractic treatment as a form of preventative care often experience better golf games, with diminished risk of muscle strains and sprains, than do golfers who merely seek chiropractic care for pain. As a result, joints that move fluidly over the years are less apt to develop arthritis. Consequently, they will provide the golfer with many more years and rounds of golf. And who knows – maybe the care will shave a point or two off your handicap!
