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.

International Self-Care Day

Held each year on July 24, International Self-Care Day (ISD) is an opportunity to bring awareness to the importance of self-care. Self-care is anything that one does to stay healthy, both mentally and physically. This can include practicing good hygiene, eating nutritious foods, getting enough exercise and quality sleep, and tending to one’s emotional and spiritual needs. It is an important first step in preventing many diseases and conditions. ISD activities are held around the world each year and can include things like concerts, organized walks, sport matches, self-care classes, and media events. How will you celebrate ISD in 2019?

Orthotics and Lower-Back Pain

Did you know there is a strong correlation between the structure of your feet and back pain? Your feet are your foundation, but if your weight is unevenly distributed when you walk, your spine will be exposed to stressors that will develop into back pain. Causes for this include high arches, flat feet, poor foot/ankle functioning, excessive shock transmission and leg asymmetry, which all contribute to the pressure of your upper body on your hips. Chiropractors are experts in this and can provide corrective support for your arches which can realign your pelvis and improve spinal functions. Get yours checked today!

The Strength of Vulnerability

Author and speaker, Brene Brown, found inspiration from a quote given by former US President Theodore Roosevelt, “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming.” Brown’s work encourages us to face the vulnerability of living life “in the arena.” Check out her special called “The Call to Courage” on Netflix!

Digestive Problems? Treat The Cause!

More than 20 million Canadians suffer from digestive disorders every year. Whether it’s heartburn, reflux, indigestion, abdominal pain, bloating, irritable bowel, or colitis, those suffering seldom find long term solutions. Conventional medicines offer temporary relief but rarely address the cause. If you do not find the cause, the symptoms will continue to worsen. One of the best ways to determine the cause of your condition is with nutritional testing. This non-invasive testing will let you know if you are lacking specific nutrients essential for proper digestion. If deficiencies are found, specific nutritional formulations can be given to address the cause and heal the area.

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.
