"Inaction, save as a measure of recuperation between bursts of activity,
  is painful and dangerous to the healthy organism. Only the dying can be really idle."
  ~ H. L. Mencken


Mental Attitude: Sleep Tight?
Children with excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS), despite little indication of short sleep from traditional measurements, were more likely to experience problems with learning, attention/hyperactivity and conduct than children without EDS.   Obesity, symptoms of inattention, depression, anxiety, and asthma have been found to contribute to EDS.

Health Alert: Obesity Projections!
At current projections, 42% of the US population will be obese by 2030, with 11% categorized as severely obese. Severe obesity is defined as a body mass index over 40 or roughly 100 pounds overweight. $550 billion could be saved in the next 20 years just by keeping obesity rates at the current level!

Exercise: Cancer and Exercise.
Physical activity is linked to lower rates of breast and colon cancer deaths. Exercise helps moderate insulin levels, reduce inflammation and possibly improve the immune response. Even though direct effects of physical activity on cancer are not definitely proven, given that physical activity is generally safe, improves quality of life for cancer patients, and has numerous other health benefits, adequate physical activity should be a standard part of cancer care.

Chiropractic: Interesting Anatomy.
Every organ, tissue and cell in your body requires a two-way information connection with your brain, via the nervous system. How important is your nervous system? It is  he only system/organ encased in solid bone, as your skull houses your brain and your vertebra encapsulate your spinal cord.

Wellness/Prevention: Commutes Risk Health.
Individuals with the longest commutes are least likely to report frequently engaging in moderate to vigorous exercise, and most likely to show risk factors for poorer cardiovascular and metabolic health. Commuting more than 10 miles to work is linked with high blood pressure.

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
