Mental Attitude: Music and Emotions.
 
Music can evoke   positive emotions, which in turn can lower stress levels. In a survey study,   positive emotions were experienced more often and more intensively in   connection with music listening. The more the participants liked the music,   the less stress they experienced. To get the positive effects of music, you   have to listen to music you like.

Health Alert: Slow Brain Growth In Babies Linked To   Depression During Pregnancy!
 
Many women   experience a roller coaster of emotions during pregnancy: stress, confusion,   fear, sadness and depression. Babies whose mothers are depressed during   pregnancy have a greater chance of growing slower, resulting in the head and   body showing retarded growth. Also, antidepressants increase the risk of slow   growth in the development of babies' brains.

Diet: High-Fat Diets Increase Colon Cancer Risk.
 
Eating too much fat   and sugar puts a person at greater risk for colon cancer and obesity. In   normal tissue from patients with colon cancer, they found that epigenetic   marks on genes involved in breaking down carbohydrates, lipids and amino   acids (abundant in the fatty Western diet) appeared to have been retrained.   Epigenetic marks are chemical modifications that serve as on/off switches for   many genes. These foods are changing the methylation patterns on a person's   insulin genes so that they express differently, pumping out more insulin than   the body requires.

Exercise: Exercise Linked To Change In DNA.
 
Exercise almost   immediately alters DNA in healthy but inactive men and women. Although the   genetic makeup is not altered, DNA molecules change structurally and   chemically when a person exercises. One researcher noted, "Our muscles   are really plastic. We often say 'You are what you eat.' Well, muscle adapts   to what you do. If you don't use it, you lost it and this is one of the   mechanisms that allow that to happen."

Chiropractic: Is Chiropractic Safe? YES.
 
Chiropractic's   non-surgical, drug-free approach to health places it among the safest of all   health care practices. Remember, chiropractic takes nothing out of the body   and puts nothing in. As a result, chiropractors enjoy one of the lowest   malpractice rates of all health care professionals.

Wellness/Prevention: How Much Selenium?
 
While too much   selenium may result in the development of type 2 diabetes, high selenium   intake has been shown to protect against certain cancers, such as lung,   colorectal, bladder, and prostate cancer. It also increases male fertility   and has positive effects on antiviral function. Low selenium intake has been   linked to memory and brain decline, low immune system quality, and a greater   risk of death.

My visit was the best I have had in years. I had been having pain in my neck and shoulders for so long with no relief. They were able to spot the problem and fix it. It was amazing how much better I felt! THANK YOU! There is a real element of caring when you walk into this office and it extends even after you have left the building. I sure wish there were more Chiropractors out there like this
