(Article) 5 Reasons to Get Regular Chiropractic Adjustments

BY BRIGITTE CUTSHALL

Chiropractic is based on the principle that spinal joint misalignment can interfere with the nervous system, which can result in lower resistance to disease and other conditions that can diminish your health. Chiropractors focus on the overall health of the patient and provide natural treatments that rely on the body’s innate ability to recuperate. They also recognize that many factors affect health, including exercise, diet, rest, environment, and genetics. Chiropractors will recommend changes in lifestyle that affect those factors. In many instances, they will refer you to or consult with other health practitioners.

(Article) You Absolutely Need to Stop Wearing Shoes in Your House

There may be no marker of modern civilization quite like the shoe: not only does it make clopping around our cemented world significantly more tolerable (and less dangerous), but it also serves as an indicator of our sensibilities, our profession, our sense of style. You can tell a lot by the shoes people wear from the type of work they do to their income levels, even their political standings. And there’s something else shoes can tell us: whether or not we’re at risk of serious health issues.

A recent study out of the University of Houston found that 39 percent of shoe soles sampled were contaminated with the bacteria C. diff(Clostridium difficile), a public health threat that is now resistant to a number of antibiotics. C. diff infections can cause severe diarrhea that may progress to colon inflammation and more serious health issues, especially if it does not respond to antibiotic treatment. Read More

Why People Fail at Weight Loss

Wico Weight LossIt is estimated that 92% of Americans who go onto a diet put the weight back on again within 12 months of getting off their diet. There are 4 reasons why this is so:

  1. People never learn correct food habits so they ultimately go back to their old unhealthy eating habits.
  2. When losing weight, people lose muscle mass which is their body’s calorie burning engine. This is the worst step people interested in losing weight can take, as they will lower their resting metabolic rate of how many calories they burn on a daily basis.
  3. Functional health imbalances such a thyroid problem or liver toxicity or digestion problem is not addressed, which is why many times people put the weight back again even after they have lost their weight.
  4. People feel hungry, have cravings, low energy and mental alertness when they go onto a diet and therefore give up, becoming disillusioned about losing weight.

The only program that addresses all these issues is the TRANSFORMATIONS-360 Program. Find out how it works to see why all of the above concerns are addressed.
