What would you want your body to be able to do extremely well in order to achieve health?

 

Your brain is constantly sending specific information to each cell in your body. When the signal is clear, we call this EASE. In order to be a self-regulating, self-healing organism, this EASE must be maintained because it allows the brain to know what is happening and how it should respond. One of the most amazing aspects of your body is the ability to maintain a status of equilibrium and ease. In biology, the term for this is Homeostasis. Even more amazing is the fact that your body can maintain ease and homeostasis while exposed to negative Toxins, Thoughts and Trauma’s daily as long as this is within your body’s ability for adaptation.

 

What’s even more amazing is that a specific chiropractic adjustment on a specific vertebra can remove the stress that is compressing the neuro-activity of the body. By releasing the Subluxation, we restore the balance and EASE within your body so you can withstand daily stress’s. In other words, you can ADAPT to your environment without losing EASE or Homeostasis as long as your nervous system stays clear.

 

Chiropractic is awesome! Less stress, more ease and better adaptation. But what if we went a step further. Not only is your body communicating at 100% but the information that is sent is upgraded. It’s like going from regular TV to 4K. Same TV show, same information, just better and much clearer picture. Your body can now think more clearly.

 

If I had to design a body to be healthy, I would want it to self-heal, regenerate, fight infections and harmful pathogens, adapt to its environment, process information optimally. Do all that while keeping a state of ease and homeostasis. Your body is designed to be healthy, it just needs no interference.

 

What’s sad is most people still think chiropractic is about back pain. If only they knew what really goes on during an adjustment.

 

I love you and here for you 100%,

It's time to think Christmas Strategy.

Unfortunately during this time of the year because of time constraints, people being busy, financial stress, parties, bad foods, more booze etc..  it more often than not is one of the most stressful times of the year. More people get sick during Christmas and January than any other time in the year. 

Here are my 7 AWESOME Steps to Christmas Success

1. Pro-Actively Pre-Eat: Before you go to Christmas functions, dinners and parties and indulge in foods you don't normally eat (SUGAR), eat a few hours before something nutritious before you go. This will decrease the tendency for you to want to eat more food and ensure you are getting proper nutrition. 

2. Stay Continually Hydrated: People often think they are hungry when in fact they are dehydrated. Especially in kids. Staying hydrated is not only good for you it will ensure your appetite stays in control. 

3. Don't skip on your workout. Your workout is as much as a mind set thing as it is a physical thing. Exercise breaks stress, oxygenates your cells and this gives life to your tissues. If you skip your workout you often tend to skip-out on other things too. Stick to it and be committed, consistency is key.

4. Steer Clear of the Sugar. Sugar is proven to reduce the function of your nervous system which reduces your immune system. Sugar feeds disease cells. Bacterial and Cancer cells LOVE sugar.

5. Don't hang out near the bad stuff. Out of sight, out of mind. Don't park yourself beside the bar or beside the sweets table. 

6. Rest Up. We typically get this wrong and do it backwards. When we are the most busy, we need the most rest. Take a small 15-20 min nap if you need to. Deadlines, late nights, parties, extra work all add up to less rest. 

7. Take the time to be Merry and Joyful. This is so so so important. This is one of the relationships time of the year. Do not let stress and being caught up in pointless things rob you of joy. Surround yourself with loved ones and celebrate life. 

When we need Health the most, we often bail on it the most. These strategies will keep you pointed in the right direction so that you can live the life you were Designed to live. 

From all of us at the healthy family to you and your family, we love being part of your lives and on your journey towards true health. Have a wonderful Merry Christmas and a happy new year. God bless,

How are you feeling? Especially after the elections last week, it seems that’s all everyone was talking about. I logged onto Facebook and I had to turn it off, it was crazy. The radio was driving me nuts and in just 5 weeks it’s Christmas! If you are not already stressed, then I probably just made you a little more stressed. YOUR WELCOME! I want to give you some really HUGE stress reduction tips that I know will help you leading into Christmas and the new year.

 

Studies show us unequivocally that stress is all about the nervous system (Brain and Spinal Cord) and its ability to adapt and deal with every day stresses.

 

1.    Chiropractic adjustments: When you hear that “pop” your spinal cord and specifically Lamina 7 is stimulated and synapses (triggers) your brain to immediately stop stress response (Cortisol and other hormones) and immediately initiates a healing response. The adjustment stops destructive and negative processes and starts life-giving and building

2.    Movement: When you engage into activities (Yoga, Walking, Exercise, Weight-Lifting, etc.) you are moving and mobilizing your spine, you are reducing tension throughout your body, it helps to relax muscles but most importantly research shows it helps to pump and circulate cerebral-spinal fluid (CSF) around your spine and brain. CSF is responsible for 90% of the nutrition to your brain. If you have ever gone for a 30 min walk or gone to yoga, you feel very relaxed afterwards. It’s because you helped moved the CSF around your body and gave your brain the nutrition it needs.

3.    Renewing your mind: Having something you can rely on that helps keep you motivated and thinking positive. This is a must have and a proven life changing strategy. Everyone needs something to keep them thinking positive. Recent studies have found those who create a list by adding one thing you are greateful for each morning for a month had the best and most positive changes in their lives. Being grateful and acknowledging blessings in your life changes the hormones in your brain. Oxytocin and Serotonin are naturally released in the highest amounts when you are 1. grateful and 2. when you hug or do something for someone else without expectations of something in return.

 

Find a book that is motivational, inspirational, and hope giving. Keep the book on your night stand. Every night before going to bed, read for 5-10 mins and let those positive and encouraging thoughts fuel your mind as you sleep and repair.

Books I recommend:

Limitless by Jentzen Franklin

Awaken the Giant Within by Tony Robbins

The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown
