CONDITION OF THE WEEK: RESPIRATORY CONDITIONS as we enter into fall and winter many people will suffer from allergies, colds and flu’s as well as some other sinus infections. Using an allergy filter in your air-conditioning unit can help save a lot of respiratory problems. Maintaining proper humidity as the heaters kick on can help prevent colds and flu’s. Adjustments help maintain a healthier immune system and the use of vitamin A in C can help maximize immunity to viruses. Flu shots don’t work. Strengthening your immune system through chiropractic and nutritional therapy works great.
DIET: FOODS THAT CAN SEND YOU TO JAIL In support of food freedom, two members of the US Congress recently sat down for an “illegal” meal of hemp scones, non USDA-inspected steak, non-inspected eggs, kombucha, and raw milk. A number of bills have been introduced, aimed at improving consumer choice by loosening regulations on small farms that sell foods such as raw milk, beef, kombucha, and hemp. The Interstate Milk Freedom Act of 2014 would allow raw milk to be sold nationwide, across state lines. The Industrial H will emp Farming Act of 2015 would amend the Controlled Substances Act to exclude hemp.
IN THE NEWS: Vaccine-Related Shoulder Injuries Are Increasing Shoulder injury related to vaccine administration (SIRVA) causes serious shoulder pain and “frozen shoulder” that may leave you unable to lift your arm. SIRVA occurs if the vaccine mistakenly goes into the bursa, a fluid-filled sac that protects your shoulder tendons. If injected into the bursa, the vaccine may provoke your immune system to attack the bursa, causing SIRVA.
FUNNY BONE: Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.@@ A computer once beat me at chess, but it was no match for me at kick boxing.@@ A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.@@ Always borrow money from a pessimist. He won’t expect it back.@@ He who smiles in a crisis has found someone to blame.
CHIROPRACTIC MONTH: during October we celebrate chiropractic month. If you have a family member or friend who has a health problem or is in pain October is a great month to start care. If they ask for the chiropractic month special they will receive a complimentary exam and one x-ray. Who do you know who needs to get started on the road to better health?
