Serrapeptase – The Little Miracle Enzyme!

Proven to be a safe and effective natural alternative to NSAIDs (drugs like aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen), Serrapeptase breaks down long protein chains into amino acids that the body needs. It helps to reduce pain and swelling associated with osteoarthritis, joint pain, carpel tunnel syndrome, and post-operative swelling. It even thins out mucous which in turn eases chronic sinusitis. Serrapeptase should be in a delayed release or enteric-coated capsule taken on an empty stomach. This allows the Serrapeptase to pass through the stomach to the small intestine, where the enzyme is then released.

Why Should I See a Chiropractor?

Although chiropractic care is most often thought to help with back pain, it can also be beneficial as an adjunct therapy for a variety of symptoms including, but not limited to, digestive issues, perinatal care and pediatrics. Chiropractic improves biomechanics of the spine and joints resulting in enhanced nervous system function and ultimately, overall health. Regular chiropractic treatments can help to strengthen and fortify the body from any potential future threats that may intend to cause harm later down the line. Chiropractic can even work to heal damage done by past injuries and illnesses, making it a truly worthwhile, not to mention safe and affordable, investment to your health.

The Value of Self-Worth

Self-worth is often mistaken for self-esteem, yet the two qualities are quite different. Self-esteem is a measure of how you feel about yourself at any given time. Your self-worth is your right to be here on Earth. You are born worthy, not to be defined by your intelligence, looks, talent, or accomplishments. Each time you treat yourself kindly, listen to your personal boundaries, allow your needs to be met, and respect yourself, you are honouring your innate value. Seeing your mistakes and failures as a part of the journey allows you to learn and grow.

How Going Nuts Could Save Your Life

A recent study from the Harvard School of Public Health found that people who eat a handful of nuts per day are 20 percent less likely to die early than those who skip them. In addition to lower early death rates, the researchers found that people who consumed seven or more handful-sized servings per week saw a 25 percent reduction in death from cardiovascular disease, and an 11 percent reduction in death from cancers. Each nut has a unique profile and features different benefits: walnuts for the heart; almonds for weight loss and pistachios for brain health. Go nuts for nuts!

Improve Your Focus & Concentration

Very often, the brain and nervous system become fatigued and overloaded. Much like a computer receiving too much data all at once, the brain can become overwhelmed, slow down, or even crash. This can result in an inability to focus, brain fog, memory loss, ADD/ADHD-like symptoms, a “wired” feeling, or the inability to cope with daily life. The key to turning these conditions around is to give the body what it needs to strengthen specific areas of the brain and nervous system. This can be achieved naturally with specialized nutritional formulations, which will replenish the body and alleviate symptoms.

No More Headaches

Stress. Poor circulation. Adrenal imbalance. Liver toxins. Sinus pressure. Eye strain. Hormonal imbalance. Cerebellar (brain) fatigue. What do these have in common? They can all cause headaches and migraines. When you find out what triggers the headaches, you can treat the cause, not just the symptoms. The most effective way to do this is with computerized Biofeedback testing. If an area of the body that causes headaches/migraines is found to be deficient, Bioresonance can be used to stimulate the area to help it function properly. Remember! Treating the cause = no more headaches!
