Mental Attitude: Less Distress If Active!
 
Researchers found that older adults who experienced any level of psychological distress were more likely to experience physical functional limitations than those who did not.   Psychological distress scores indicated that 8.4% of all older adult participants experienced some level of psychological distress and older adults who experienced even a moderate level of psychological distress were the most likely group to experience a functional limitation -- almost seven times more likely than those who did not report any psychological distress!

Health Alert: Super Markets and Waist Size.
 
People who shop at discount supermarkets or in supermarkets in areas with poorly educated consumers have higher than normal body mass indices (BMI) and waist circumferences. According to the study's author, Basile Chaix, "A public health strategy to reduce excess weight may be to intervene on specific supermarkets to change food purchasing behavior, as supermarkets are where dietary preferences are materialized into definite purchased foods."

Exercise: Regular Walking Regimen.
 
Cancer patients can literally take a step-by-step approach to combat fatigue following surgical treatment. This fatigue doesn't go away with sleep, affects daily activities (doing your personal hygiene in the morning, getting up and getting dressed, going from the bedroom to breakfast, etc.) and can also lead to anxiety and depression.   Patients who underwent an operation as part of their cancer treatment and then started a regular walking regimen experienced less fatigue than cancer survivors who did not do the walking program.

Chiropractic: Keep Your Blood Flowing.

Wellness/Prevention: Cancer Is A Preventable Disease!
 
Only 5-10% of cancer cases are due to genetic defects. The other 90-95% of cancer cases are due to environmental and lifestyle factors including smoking, alcohol consumption, poor diet, obesity, infectious agents, environmental pollution and radiation.

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
