|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 Unpublished studies have shown that rats eating the boxes of cereals lived longer than those eating the cereal itself.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.”
