Health Musts

March 13, 2018

As a professional health care practitioner I get a lot of questions about health. So to give you more information, here are some fundamentals of health where common sense can help you enjoy a healthy and happy life.    

  1. Food.All food is not bad. Fake food is, however, your enemy health-wise. Whether the latest article decries salt, sugar, fat, or meat, they all lead to the same conclusion: Eat real food in moderate proportions, and cook your food yourself as much as you can. If you eat whole foods – fruits, veggies, whole grains, unprocessed, unfrozen, free of preservatives, made by you at home with fresh ingredients – you avoid all of the perils of an excess of anything. The major problem with food in our present-day society is that much of it is so processed. Because processed food tends to be packed with excess calories, salt, or chemicals, it kicks off an inflammatory state in the body, which is not meant to handle super-saturated nutritional bombs. So eat simply and well, most of the time, and help your body out immensely.

Gut Brain The gut-brain connection Have you ever had a “gut-wrenching” experience? Do certain situations make you “feel nauseous”? Have you ever felt “butterflies” in your stomach? We use these expressions for a reason. The gastrointestinal tract is sensitive to emotion. Anger, anxiety, sadness, elation — all of these feelings (and others) can trigger symptoms in the gut. The brain has a direct effect on the stomach. For example, the very thought of eating can release the stomach’s juices before food gets there. This connection goes both ways. A troubled intestine can send signals to the brain, just as a troubled brain can send signals to the gut. Therefore, a person’s stomach or intestinal distress can be the cause or the product of anxiety, stress, or depression. That’s because the brain and the gastrointestinal (GI) system are intimately connected. This is especially true in cases where a person experiences gastrointestinal upset with no obvious physical cause. For such disorders, it is difficult to try to heal a distressed gut without considering the role of stress and emotion.

For thousands of years it’s been known that a healthy spine is essential for a healthy life.
Most people think health is having no symptoms. This is truly not the case. In fact, the first symptom of heart disease for 40% of those who suffer from it is a severe or fatal heart attack!
Currently, society’s emphasis has been on the removal of symptoms rather than on creating an environment in which the body can function as close to 100% as possible. Health can be achieved and maintained when your emphasis shifts toward creating optimum function, not simply removing symptoms.

Every day we are bombarded with toxins, in the foods we eat and the air we breathe. While we do our best to minimize and eliminate these toxins on a daily basis – such as through exercise (sweating), drinking water (flushing out toxins), and adapting healthy habits (not using pesticides in our homes), toxins still invade our systems everyday. These toxins accumulate in our bodies and overtime can have devastating effects. These toxins aren’t easily eliminated by our bodies. The spine is the center of your body: it supports the function of so many systems in our magical human bodies. Getting chiropractic adjustments can help us feel great and reap the benefits of exercise. Chiropractic adjustments can also help to rid our bodies of any toxins and therefore further cultivate positive energy. Care from Dr. Lawrence combined with a great food regimen can help you to feel even better! The best thing about chiropractic is that it’s an ancient practice that is purely natural – no drugs are used at all. The adjustments are effective at treating a range of health problems and can help you feel your best! Visit 6 ways to help your body detox to learn more.

There are many ways you can be healthy over the holidays, keep reading to find out different options for eating and gift giving the healthy way. Modifying Holiday Recipes can be a trick to have the treats but feel better about eating them. There are many ways that you can modify your favorite holiday desserts to reduce the fat and calories but still keep the flavor and texture. Try these ideas: Fruit puree. Substitute an equal amount of fruit puree (e.g., applesauce) for oil in cake, brownie, bread, or muffin mixes. The fruit adds flavor, moisture, and tenderness to baked goods when the oil is omitted. Egg whites or egg substitutes. Replace some of the whole eggs in a recipe with egg whites or a commercial egg substitute. 1 egg = 2 egg whites or 1/4 cup of egg substitute. Cocoa powder. Use 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder plus 1 Tbsp. regular or diet margarine in place of every 1 oz. of unsweetened baking chocolate. Gift Giving Ideas The holiday season is also a time to think of your friends and family. Consider including nutrition and fitness-themed gifts to help others focus on healthy lifestyles and enjoyable activities. It is always hard to find a gift for the person that has everything.
