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.

Are You Too Acidic?

If you have acid reflux, gout, kidney stones, osteoporosis, dental disease, or cancer, these all can be considered symptoms of chronic acid states.
We can do better! Stop covering up symptoms with prescription medications and start managing the symptoms from the root cause.
Help your body out by eating a diet of plant-based whole foods that are rich in fibre, such as whole grains, vegetables, and fruit. The take-home message here is to start restoring equilibrium and physiology with lifestyle choices that will help return the body to a more balanced, alkaline state. Ionized alkaline water helps support this effort!

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.

Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS)

Everyone experiences muscle pain from time to time, but myofascial pain syndrome is when the pain gets worse and does not go away. Sometimes patients have it for years and it’s commonly misdiagnosed. If it is treated by a pain specialist, it can be reversed, but it might take a couple of acupuncture sessions to find all sensitive points in your muscles (trigger points) and deactivate them. With acupuncture, most patients get to be pain free. Complications associated with MPS include sleep problems, depression, anxiety and may even play a role in the onset of Fibromyalgia. Don’t wait until it becomes a chronic pain disorder.

Allergies or Just Dry Eyes?

Many people aren’t easily able to tell what’s causing their eyes to be Allergies are the most likely cause, but often get confused with pink eye, a highly contagious disease, especially in children, that must be treated differently. If your eyes are red because they’re dry, your eye doctor can prescribe special eye drops that help lubricate them. Don’t let your eyes stay red and dry for very long, as it could harm your vision.

Chiropractic Care for Children

Why would a child need a chiropractic adjustment? Because they have spines and nervous systems, too! Being birthed, growing, learning to crawl, walking, and moving all have major impacts on the body. We are often diligent about getting our children in for other check-ups. Why not make sure their nervous system is functioning optimally, too? Babies and children don’t have the same musculature and ligament development, so they don’t need drastic or aggressive adjustments. Regularly adjusted children benefit from proper spinal and pelvic movement which allows the nervous system to work the best it can, giving them a great chance at a healthy and happy life!

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!

Are You Underweight?

Did you know that being underweight and overweight are from the same problem source: ACIDITY. Up to half the nutrients that go into your body can be eaten up by harmful microorganisms that thrive in acidic environments, causing you to be excessively thin. The body is literally wasting away, which can put you at a higher risk of serious illness than an overweight person! But the higher levels of pH of alkaline water can neutralize acid in your bloodstream. This is why it is vital to alkalize your body with pure alkaline water, an alkaline diet and an alkaline lifestyle.

The Customer-Pharmacist Relationship

It’s important to have a good relationship with your pharmacist, as they are a valuable source of information and can help you make decisions on and better understand your medications and overall health. A good rule of thumb when it comes to determining what kind of relationship you have with your pharmacist is whether you know them by their first name. Pharmacists who offer a more personal experience can provide more individualized, specific information on your prescriptions. Your pharmacist should be available to answer questions you have and to explain in detail any medications you are taking for the first time.
