WELLNESS/PREVENTION: Is your child’s breakfast cereal doing more harm than good? Breakfast cereals are a multi-billion dollar industry. Unpublished studies have shown that rats eating the boxes of cereals lived longer than those eating the cereal itself. The large corporate food industry with its many lobbyists have successfully kept all research on the dangers of cold cereals out of published journals. When looking for breakfast foods, choose real foods that are not processed. Good breakfast choices include high quality, organic pastured eggs, eaten raw in smoothies or cooked. Eggs can be cooked as delicious omelets with vegetables and cheese, sunny side up, soft or hard boiled. Eating eggs with the yolk uncooked leaves more nutrients intact.

IN THE NEWS: Reasons why you need more fat in your diet Fat doesn’t make us fat—sugar does. Saturated fat helps make you feel full. Processed meats like bologna and bacon are worse for the body than a steak. Add two servings of nuts to your weekly diet, and you’ll cut your risk of death due to heart disease by 11 percent. Manmade trans fats found in partially hydrogenated oils like shortening are definitely bad for the body. Fats found in olive oil and fish are rich in “good” cholesterol.

CONDITION OF THE WEEK: LUNG PROBLEMSBreathing Problems can come fromAllergies, Panic attacks, Lung disease, Blockage of air passages in the mouth, throat or nose, Heart disease, Blood clot in arteries of the lungs, or Emotional distress. The nervous system directly controls breathing and airway constriction/dilation. Autonomic nervous system dysfunction is common in asthmatic sufferers. Mobility of the thoracic spine has been shown to directly affect respiratory function. Chiropractors correct subluxations in the spine which can irritate the nerve supply to the lungs and airways. No matter what your breathing problems are, chiropractic can be beneficial. If you’re interested in drug-free treatment for breathing problems, chiropractic is the perfect solution.

FUNNY BONE: A nervous taxpayer was unhappily conversing with the IRS auditor who had come to review his records. At one point the auditor exclaimed, “We feel it is a great privilege to be allowed to live and work in the USA. As a citizen you have an obligation to pay taxes, and we expect you to eagerly pay them with a smile.”
“Thank God,” returned the taxpayer. “I thought you were going to want cash.”

CONDITION OF THE WEEK: INDIGESTIONyour digestive system is a complex miracle of activity. Stress, poor diet, toxicity and subluxations can compromise your digestive system. Chiropractic care and nutritional therapy are the most effective ways of reestablishing normal digestion. Covering up symptoms will not fix the problem. It will only allow the problem time to get worse. Tell others about chiropractic.

Tulsa Chiropractor, pain, natural health care.DIET: HOW CHILIES CAN BE USED TO TREAT PAIN Chili peppers’ heat comes from capsaicin, a compound produced to protect them from fungal attack. When you eat a chili pepper, capsaicin binds to and activates heat receptor proteins called TRPV1, so even though you’re not actually in danger, your body thinks it’s being exposed to extreme heat. If exposed to capsaicin for long enough, your pain nerve cells will become de-sensitized to the painful stimulus. Capsaicin is available in pain-relieving creams and patches, and has shown promise for relieving shingles pain, osteoarthritis, psoriasis symptoms, and more. Capsaicin has both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and has also shown some promise for cancer, weight loss, and allergy symptoms.

IN THE NEWS: Solutions for an overactive bladder Cut down-Caffeine in coffee, tea and soda can irritate the bladder and make the urge to go stronger, so cutting back may help. Drop the pounds- If you’re overweight or obese, losing weight can significantly improve your symptoms. “As the weight goes down, the pressure on the bladder goes down,” Ramin said. Do Kegels- “Performing Kegel exercises can reduce frequent urges to urinate,” said Dr. S. Adam Ramin, a urologist and urologic surgeon at Providence Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, Calif. and the founder and medical director of Urology Cancer Specialists in Los Angeles. So contract, hold and release, and shoot for 30 to 40 Kegels a day. Bladder retraining- You can actually condition your bladder to function properly by teaching yourself how to suppress the urge to urinate. So when you feel like you have to go, do a Kegel instead and then try to wait before going the bathroom.  Estrogen cream- Thinning of the vaginal wall as a result of a drop in estrogen during menopause can cause irritation and inflammation of the bladder. An estrogen cream can help and is safe for women, even those who have had breast cancer, because it doesn’t get absorbed into the blood stream, Ramin said.

WELLNESS: Try Natural Energy Boosters that Last (NaturalNews) Energy is something that we all feel a little short on from time to time. It’s a good thing that there are a myriad of natural energy boosters that we can eat, drink, or take as a supplement to help us be peak performers all day long. Spirulina, the first on the list, is a blue-green algae that is not only great for enhancing energy, but it also is packed with vitamins and nutrients. Spirulina contains high quantities of beta carotene, a powerful antioxidant, and GLA, which may be helpful in weight management. Ginseng is another great energy booster. Panax ginseng is the type that provides the greatest energy, although it is often thought that all types of ginseng provide energy support. It has multiple other benefits that have been discovered as well, although energy enhancement is still what it is primarily known and used for.

CONDITION OF THE WEEK:DETOX-FOCUS AND CONCENTRATIONSo what are the benefits of detox? Most people will report that they have higher energy levels when coming off a detox, have better focus and concentration, and also report weight loss as well as their body does get rid of all the toxic build-up that was inside of it. For some people it’s very much a ‘mental’ thing as well.  By using the detox they help put themselves in a much healthier mental state, thus are more motivated to carry out a healthy eating and exercise approach once it’s finished.

FUNNY BONE:A lawyer was just waking up from anesthesia after surgery, and his wife was sitting by his side. His eyes fluttered open and he said, “You’re beautiful!” and then he fell asleep again. His wife had never heard him say that so she stayed by his side. A couple of minutes later, his eyes fluttered open and he said, “You’re cute!” Well, the wife was dissapointed because instead of “beautiful,” it was “cute.” She asked, “What happened to ‘beautiful’?” His reply was “The drugs are wearing off!”

WELLNESS/PREVENTION: SECRETS TO SUPER HEALTH Most of our chronic diseases develop in a pro-inflammatory chemistry. There are different reasons that our chemistry can become inflammatory for instance, eating foods that you are allergic to, allowing your system to become too acidic, eating foods that produce too much insulin, which is a pro-inflammatory hormone, becoming our 30+ pounds overweight, just to name a few. By changing this chemistry you will help prevent cancer, heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, obesity, chronic immune disorders, to name a few. Here is a list of foods that can extend your life: All vegetables except those in the nightshade family.  The nightshade family includes potatoes, tomatoes and eggplants. all fruit and berries, nuts and seeds, All foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids such as fish, flaxseeds and walnuts, legumes, moderate amounts of lean animal protein, and healthy monounsaturated fats such as those found in olive oil and avocados. Arthritis-fighting food: kippers (Omega-3) and garlic, Kippers, or smoked herring, is an excellent source of Omega-3 fatty acid and makes a great alternative to tuna. The smokiness adds a special flavor to this salad, which can be served on top of mixed greens or spread onto whole grain bread.

IN THE NEWS:Half of all adults in the US have at least one chronic condition, such as diabetes, heart disease or obesity, according to a report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published in The Lancet. The paper – part of a new series in the journal, ‘The health of Americans’ – says the proportion of adult Americans who have two or more of these conditions is more than a quarter. Since 1970, the amount of fast food restaurants in business doubled, which equates to about 300,000 establishments in the United States. DIET MATTERS.

CONDITION OF THE WEEK: KNEE PAIN, knee pain can come from multiple sources: an inflammatory chemistry due to improper diet, and unresolved injury to the knee years before, improper pulling on the knee from the muscles in the upper leg due to low back misalignments, rotation of the tibia below the knee putting stress on the knee, weak arches causing the knee to rotate. A proper chiropractic evaluation can determine the source and correction of most knee problems.
