Finish The Year Strong!!!

(Body scan of 250 lb woman and 120 lb woman. If this isn’t motivation to work out, I don’t know what is! I’m NOT implying that a women needs to weigh 120 lbs…that’s no where near realistic for some people…but it is about health and longevity and the damage obesity causes. Look at the size of the intestines and stomach; how the knee joints rub together; the enlarged heart; and the fat pockets near the brain. Not good.)
As I have stated in previous posts, this time of the year is the most dangerous period of time for people to put their health on the back burner!  Unfortunately, they do not make their health a priority mentally, physically, financially, nutritionally, and emotionally, but rather an “if I get around to it” type of thing.  Please do not make this mistake!
I have noticed in my personal life and in the lives of 100s of practice members, that not making health a priority in the last couple months of the year set you up for a health struggle come the first of the year!  Next comes the big New Year’s resolution, which usually last until about Valentine’s Day.  Then comes the crash.  Followed by a Yo-Yo health plan the remainder of the year.
My former hockey coach and mentor used to always say, “The best way to get in shape (or be healthy) is to never get out of shape (or be unhealthy)!”  Isn’t that the truth?!  Well, that is the exact same concept that needs to be applied to your nutrition, exercise, mental attitude, and Chiropractic care.
I’ve noticed that the people who “plan the work and work the plan” always get the best results with their health and their LIFE!
What’s your plan???

Thanks…..Giving!

Well, it’s that time of year again…Thanksgiving!  A wonderful time to spend with friends and family.  Not to mention the food and football! 😉  I hope you do not forget the purpose of Thanksgiving however….and that is Thanks….Giving or Giving….Thanks.  We ALL have MANY things to be thankful for.  I also hope you do not limit your thankfulness to one day per year.  Why not make Thanksgiving an everyday celebration?!  Be thankful for everything you have EVERYDAY, not just one Thursday in November!  Celebrate your “Attitude of Gratitude” daily!

I do feel that one of the most overlooked things to be thankful for is the amazing Power that God put in your body to heal, function, and live life at 100%!  Think about it for a minute.  When was the last time you were thankful for your body being able to take the apple you just ate and use it to create new liver, kidney, or heart cells?  When was the last time you were thankful for being able to breath deeply, digest meals, pump blood throughout your body, heal a cut without even having to think about it.  That’s Innate Intelligence!  That’s that inborn wisdom that God gave you.  Without it, you have nothing!  You wouldn’t be able to be the person you are, do the things you love, and live the life of your dreams!

So, while you are being thankful for all the wonderful things and people you have in your life, please say a big thank you for the amazing Power you have within you!

I hope you all have an absolutely AWESOME Thanksgiving.  I love and appreciate you all and THANK YOU for being a part of this community!

Love and Health,

Life Balance = Abundance!

“Your LIFE is a balancing act between LIFE and Stress.  When more Life is expressing through your body, you feel great, you’re happy, and you’re living the way you want to live.  When more Stress is expressing through your body, you feel aches, you may be depressed, and the expression of your Life is limited.”

“Life isn’t just a straight line across the graph of time.  There’s ups and downs.  It’s a balancing act.”

“Removing interference from your body can never cause you to express less Life.  There has to be another reason.”

“When the scales of Life tip in favor of Stress, the weakest parts of your body will manifest the effects of Stress.  One of the Principles of Life (and in Chiropractic) is that of Limitation of Matter.  That is, all tissues in your body have limitations and when these limitations are exceeded, you have weakness.  Now, do you think your Stress will manifest first in the strong areas of your body, or the weak areas of your body?”

“That’s right.  You’re expressing less Life in the weak areas of your body because the Stress has tipped the scales in its favor.

When the scales of Life tip in favor of Stress, it’s a sure sign you need to up the “inside-out approach”  in order to return Balance to your LIFE.  When this happens, you will experience true abundance in your health and your life!

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like….UH OH!!!

Well gang, it’s that time of year again!  The Holidays!!!  This can be an amazing time to spend with family and friends, but it can also be one the most stressful, unhealthiest times of the year!  There is more travel, more planning, more shopping, more spending, more unhealthy food, more deadlines, and less time for your health (IF you allow it!)  When it comes to health, I have seen so many people absolutely fall off the wagon in the next couple months.  That’s why New Year’s resolutions are such a big deal in our society.  There’s nothing worse than starting the New Year already behind the 8 Ball.

Let’s try our best to take a different, proactive approach this time around!

First of all, you must realize that you will naturally be busier and face more stress in the next couple of months.

Second, set your priorities!  I can’t think of ANYTHING more important than your health.  So set your health as a priority in your life physically, financially, mentally, and schedule-wise.

Again, most people are busier and more stressed around this time of year.  Do you think that makes it more important or less important to make your health a priority?  Exactly!

1)  Keep the meals balanced and the snacking healthy

2)  Continue your workout program

3)  Take a deep breath.  Avoid family gossip, arguments, and drama like the plague!

4)  Do your best to limit/avoid toxins

5)  Get your spine checked regularly to make sure your body and nervous system can handle the assured attack it is about to receive!

Let’s make great choices now, so we can finish the year strong and start off 2012 on the right foot!

Halloween and Your Health?!

For all of the teachers out there (or parents, or if you work with children), pay attention this week to see if there is an increased number of sick days in your classrooms.

I’m willing to bet you’ll see an increase.  Why is this?

Well, sugar has been shown to suppress the immune system for up to 4 hours.  So, with all the Halloween candy consumed the past few days, there are a lot of children’s immune systems compromised out there!  The bugs that their immune systems would normally be able to fight off, are now overtaking the body.  Like I wrote about last week, when the environment is just right, sickness can emerge.  Unfortunately, most parents will run to the drug store for medications.  Let me ask you this….was this sickness caused by a lack of medication, cough syrup, or flu remedies?  NOPE!  Start thinking differently about your health and always, always, always ask WHY.  This will usually lead you to the CAUSE of a problem.

Let me know if you too notice an increase in childhood sickness this week.

Love and Health,
