Mental Attitude: Depression and High-Fat Diets.
 
In addition to causing obesity, rich foods can actually cause chemical reactions in the brain that ultimately lead to depression. Researchers observed that mice that received a higher-fat diet showed signs of being anxious by avoiding open areas, as well as signs of depression.

Health Alert: Pediatric Blood Pressure!
 
A study of 2500 pediatric patient visits revealed that doctors and nurses failed to check blood pressure 20% of the time. Of the 2000 patients who were checked, 726 had elevated blood pressure scores; however, 87% of these findings went unremarked and unrecognized by the medical staff.

Diet: Junk Food and Disney.
 
Junk food ads will be banned from The Walt Disney Company's TV channels, websites and radio stations that are targeted at kids. Disney added that it is the first media company to take such action. Children watching shows on its ABC network will no longer be exposed to fast food and sugary cereal ads that do not meet the company's nutritional standards. Disney says its guidelines match those issued by federal authorities (more vegetables and fruits, and a reduction in sodium, sugar and saturated fat intake).

Exercise: Pain Relief?
 
Exercise helps to alleviate pain related to nerve damage (neuropathic pain) by reducing levels of certain inflammation-promoting factors called cytokines. This supports exercise as a potentially useful non-drug treatment for neuropathic pain. In experiments, exercise reduced abnormal pain responses by 30-50%.

Wellness/Prevention: Reduce Indoor Air Pollution.
 
Cooking with gas burners on stoves and in ovens can produce unhealthy levels of indoor air pollution. These pollution levels can be higher than those encountered in heavily polluted outdoor air. Simply turn on the range exhaust fan and cook on the back burners to minimize your exposure.

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
