Freedom at Any Age

These days the mobility market is full of possibilities. Rather than being confined to the inside of your home or relying on friends and family to take you out, consider the freedom of a mobility scooter. Battery powered scooters have come a long way and are now more affordable than ever. They provide the freedom to get around, they conserve physical energy, and they also provide you access to places you may not have previously been able to go. Along with the freedom, mobility scooters offer an element of safety.

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!

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!

Avoid Heat Stress in Pets

Being overweight can be very stressful for some pets in the heat of summer – especially the short-nosed breeds that can’t breathe as easily. Any respiratory or heart conditions will exacerbate the stress of hot conditions for your pet. Keep your pet as lean as possible and avoid the summer heat. Make sure your pet drinks plenty of water and use fans or air conditioners to beat the heat. Never leave your pet in a vehicle during the summer. It only takes minutes for a vehicle heat up enough to cause brain damage, organ failure, and death due to heatstroke.

To Err with BP

Monitoring your blood pressure at home can sometimes be misleading. Checking the same arm several times in succession can give inflated results. For more accurate readings, first empty your bladder. Sit for five minutes with your back supported and your feet flat on the floor. Ensure your arm is resting level with your heart. Put the BP cuff snuggly on your bare arm. Don’t talk while taking a reading. Refrain from smoking or ingesting caffeine prior to checking. Consistent readings over 150/90 should be recorded with your pulse and reported to your doctor.

8 out of 10 People Impacted by New Epidemic

Digital Eye Strain is a new epidemic affecting roughly 8 out of every 10 people twenty-five years and older in North America – that’s 80% of nearly our whole working force! With the rise of technology, most people use screens for sometimes hours at a time. This increased digital focus is causing dry eyes, headaches, light sensitivity, blurred vision and neck pain. Whether you have any of these symptoms or work on your computer for more than 3 hours total per day, be sure to see an optometrist that prescribes glasses and/or contacts for Digital Eye Strain.

Abs of Steel or Jelly Belly?

Your pelvis is a ring of bones held together by ligaments and muscles. These muscles engage every time you walk, sit, stand, run, or even breathe! Weak stabilizing muscles cause your pelvis to move too much and surrounding muscles contract to control the excess movement, leading to chronic muscle tightness. By strengthening the core, our bodies are able to withstand these forces without muscle spasms. Some of the best exercises for core involve maintaining a neutral spine position and resisting forces. Your physiotherapist can give you specific exercises to improve your strength, while relaxing other muscles through manual therapy techniques.

Book Club: Why Can’t I Get Better?

Solving the Mystery of Lyme and Chronic Disease by Dr. Richard Horowitz. Lyme disease and its related conditions are incredibly complicated. Different patients can have completely different sets of symptoms. Through his years of working with more than 12,000 Lyme disease patients—many of whom had failed several treatments before they even came to see him—Dr. Horowitz has developed a way of looking at the complex factors that embody this disease.

The Safe Alternative To Online Dating

Online dating can be exhausting, dangerous and demoralizing. Hours of searching profiles, followed by unsuccessful date after date can result in dating ‘burn out’. Furthermore, when it comes to online dating, you never know who you are really meeting. You have no idea about their actual age and relationship status, their true intentions or if they have a criminal history. Online dating can be extremely dangerous. This is why I recommend a professional matchmaker. An experienced matchmaker will introduce you to the right match, who is screened, and hand picked for you. Finding true love is important and hiring a matchmaker could be the best decision you ever make.

Redox Signalling Molecules

“All disease begins with damaged cells.” Dr Gary Samuelson. PhD. Redox Signalling Molecules are native to our bodies. As we age production of these molecules slows down, resulting in aging skin, fatigue, disease, weight gain to name a few consequences. Increasing proper Redox Signalling Molecules in your body is the most important thing you can do for your health. Your body is the most complex communication network on earth. These molecules communicate with each other to repair or eradicate damaged cells for optimal healthy living. Isn’t it time for you to live your best life?

Optimize Your Health

Optimize your neurology and you optimize your health! Did you know that the metatarsal area of your foot has over 10,000 nerve receptors? Their main purpose in life is to report back to your brain, via your nervous system, what is happening in your body. A neurological problem, such as MS, Parkinson’s, and Fibromyalgia can compromise messaging to the brain. Voxxlife HPT helps to improve that communication. VOXX HPT is a very specific sequence and pattern of neuroreceptor activation on the bottom of the feet that triggers a signal that aides in the brainstem reaching homeostasis.
