It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve posted and I’m easing back into it with something simple celery. Long crunchy stalks of celery can be very satisfying to eat, but they’re just “empty calories”, right? Not so, says the research team at Designs for Health. In an article posted last week, team members noted:
“If there’s one food at the intersection of Paleo, vegetarian, vegan, low carb, ketogenic, kosher, halal, and low-calorie diets, it’s celery. For something that’s mostly water, celery has a lot going for it. It’s nutritious, delicious, inexpensive, and can be enjoyed raw or cooked. It may not be the kind of nutrient-packed “superfood” liver, shellfish, or spinach are, but it’s time for celery to move beyond its reputation as … More So what’s so great about celery?
“But what is curcumin and why do I need it?” you ask. Well, I asked the same thing when I began to read this fascinating article from Dr. Michael Jurgelewicz at Designs for Health. Fortunately, he didn’t leave us guessing: “There are only a few natural products that have demonstrated as wide a range of protective … More Turmeric Has the Curcumin You Need
I did not post anything least week. In the interest of “peace on earth” I refrained from posting. With 2018 in full swing, I thought we’d start out the new year with something to help you accomplish at least one of your New Years resolutions. To exercise or get in better shape! This is a simple challenge from our friends at WebExercises and encompasses a 4 week challenge … More Happy New Year!
Last week, I shared info on some great acupressure points on the ear. I told you how I had started to feel a little congested and the sinus and throat point opened me up. Well, unfortunately, it wasn’t enough and a full-on cold virus infection ensued. Sometimes doctors take the worst care of themselves and I’ve just been dealing with the symptoms of this infection and not doing anything about it. When I read this excellent article this morning from Forbes Middle East, it reminded me of how important it is for me to get adjusted regularly … More ’tis the season to be “snotty”
I am so impressed by how “little” things can make such a BIG difference in our lives. As a chiropractor, I get to see big changes in my patients from just the small things I do for them in the office. We see even bigger changes when the patients do exercises, or other activities that I have taught them to do, on their own. I love things like in this video below from Ayurveda by Curejoy. The video shows several simple acupressure points on the ear, that you can activate with a basic clothespin, to provide relief of symptoms in various parts of your body. I was having a lot of sinus congestion and post-nasal drip irritating my throat. I just held … More Easy Reflexology/ Acupressure
Well, Movember is over and Christmas is just around the corner. I did pretty well with my beard growth, resisting the temptation to trim (even around the lips). As promised, here are some pictures of my beard in all of its glory. I know I’m not much to look at, but the beard turned out pretty good. I have also learned that there are some ways to raise money during Movember, to help raise awareness of men’s health issues. The Movember Foundation has a website where … More Goodbye Movember
I had a great time last night at Gold’s Gym Arcadia! I began a marketing campaign their this month. My ad is being shown on the 20+ screens in the gym, I have my rack cards on display in the lounge area, and once or twice a month I get to be in the gym to promote my practice. I spent 3+ hours there last night demonstrating IASTM (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization) vs traditional Massage. I met a lot of great people and was able to demonstrate the technique on many of them. Check out … More Thank You Gold’s Gym
In keeping with the tradition of recent years, I am letting my November beard grow. I’ll be posting some pics at the end of the month. One of the reasons behind this men’s movement is to promote awareness of health issues men face. One of these is prostate health. Two big concerns, especially for older men are Prostate Cancer and BPH (Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy) which can cause, among other things, the excessive need to urinate. According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) … More Happy Mo-vember
