Book Club: Untamed by Glennon Doyle

Soulful and uproarious, forceful and tender, Untamed is both a memoir and a galvanizing wake-up call. It offers a piercing, electrifying examination of the restrictive expectations women are issued from birth; shows how hustling to meet those expectations leaves women feeling dissatisfied and lost; and reveals that when we quit abandoning ourselves and instead abandon the world’s expectations of us, we become women who can finally look at ourselves and recognize: There She Is.

Spinal Manipulative Therapy

Spinal manipulation is a treatment technique that involves a high velocity, low amplitude thrust, which is performed by the practitioner on a joint segment of the patient’s spine. The treatment is often accompanied by an audible ‘pop’, which is a change in pressure within the synovial joint. Manipulations can be very helpful in providing pain relief to a specific injury, but the effects are short-lived. The long-term rehab plan for your pain/injury should focus on active-based programming such as exercise. The combination of manual therapy followed by exercise provides more permanent results and better patient outcomes. Ask your practitioner if this is right for you!

Thank you, Live Life Alarms

My husband is in the early stages of Alzheimers. He continues to enjoy riding his bike and I used to get very worried as he would sometimes have difficulty finding his way home. Getting him a Live Life mobile alert was the best thing we have done as now I can readily find out quickly where he is. He recently went out cycling and was gone for some time so I called him on his alert pendant. Not only could I talk with him but the Mobile Alert sent me an automatic return text showing his exact location on Google Maps. This has given me so much confidence now and allows him to continue doing what he loves. ~ Vicki Ogston.

How Does Bemer Therapy Work?

All functions of the body are controlled by electromagnetic signals, much of which is generated by exercise. Without motion the tissues suffer from insufficient levels of electromagnetic energy. Exercise also stimulates the circulation and thereby the oxygenation of our tissues. Insufficient oxygen in the cells is thought to be the root cause of most illnesses including cancer. BEMER not only increases the electro-magnetic energy of all the cells, it also improves the circulation and oxygenation of the tissues. This encourages each cell in the body to function optimally and to correct metabolic and energetic abnormalities, which result in freedom from disease. Thus, the physiological effects of BEMER treatment are similar to the benefits of exercise.

Vision Problems or Learning Difficulties?

When your child struggles with schoolwork, despite all best efforts to help, it can be very difficult to figure out what is needed. When an eye coordination or eye tracking problem is at the root of a child’s struggles with learning, the signs are very easy to see – when you know what to look for. Unfortunately, these signs can easily be mistaken for learning difficulties or attention problems. One of the signs that a vision problem may be contributing to learning challenges is a short attention span when it comes to reading and near work. This behavior could easily be mistaken for ADHD and/or Dyslexia. A developmental vision evaluation could open the door to your child’s success.

Beauty Benefits of Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is well known for its healing properties when it comes to sunburns, bug bites and other skin abrasions, but that is only the beginning. Did you know that Aloe Vera is a fantastic skincare ingredient? Aloe Vera is rich in vitamin C, E and beta carotene which gives it its nourishing and anti-ageing qualities. It can moisturize the skin without making it greasy, which makes it great for those with oily skin. Its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties also give it the ability to work wonders in reducing acne. Aloe Vera treats the cells on the epithelial level of the skin which is why it’s recommended by dermatologists to treat your problematic skin.
