You Are Not Overweight, You Are Overacidic

Are you looking to achieve optimal health, all while shedding excess weight? Over-acidification of the body sets in motion a destructive cycle of imbalance, disease and obesity. Too much acid in the body robs the blood of oxygen, and without oxygen, the metabolism slows. Food digests more slowly, inducing weight gain and sluggishness, and worse still, causing the food to ferment. It is vital to balance your pH level by reducing your acidity through drinking good pure water, eating natural foods, and eliminating highly processed high sugar content foods.

Put Down That Chemical Sunscreen

A recent study conducted by the FDA and published in the Journal of the American Medical Association revealed that commonly used chemical sunscreens are absorbed into the bloodstream at potentially toxic levels after just one day of use. Instead of physically deflecting UV light away from the skin like a mineral sunscreen would do, chemical sunscreens absorb the UV radiation into the skin and dissipate the energy via a chemical reaction under the skin. Additionally, there is concern that chemical sunscreens can permeate the skin and cause hormone disruption. Common chemical sunscreen ingredients to avoid include oxybenzone (one of the worst offenders), avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate, and octinoxate.

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!

Healthy Bones

Regular weight bearing exercise or strength training is essential to maintaining healthy bones. Resistance training improves muscle mass and strength and can increase spine and hip bone density. Physiotherapists assess posture, understand risk factors and can advise which exercises are best for those with osteoporosis. If you are a woman, you have a 50% lifetime risk of a fracture from osteoporosis. Maintaining adequate bone density lowers the risk of fracture. How does exercise affect bone health? Bone is a living tissue. Bone cells, have the ability to adapt to the amount of stress placed on them thus increasing density.

Let’s Talk About Travel Health

Travelling around the globe is more commonplace today than ever. But when people travel, they often unwittingly bring along extra baggage that they didn’t even know they packed. Viruses and bacteria are always on the move, as travellers carry them either by travelling while ill or by being a carrier – having the infection but not experiencing symptoms yet. The good news is that if you do come in contact with a virus or bacteria, there is an excellent chance that an antibiotic or other medication will preserve your good health. Getting vaccinated against diseases that are common to your travel destination will give you extra peace of mind before you hop on that plane.

Building a Child’s Mental Health

How will you contribute to your child’s mental health this summer?
All it takes is your time, and presence. Designate jobs for money earned so they have a sense of purpose.
Ditch the basement time with electronics. Enjoy and explore the outdoors together, whether it be a walk, bike ride, picnic, park or pool time. Build up your relationship with your presence, without opening your wallet. Children remember and cherish the time you have spent with them. It also fosters a caring environment where they may feel safe and a sense of belonging.
Enjoy your family, enjoy your summer.
