Keep Cardio Fun

Cardio can be a dreaded part of your daily or weekly routine. But it doesn’t have to be. Instead of hitting the treadmill, get on your bike, enjoy the fresh air, and experience your community in a whole new way while improving your cardiovascular health. Studies show people who commute by bike daily have a 46% lower risk of developing and a 52% lower risk of dying from cardiovascular disease. Cycling is a low-impact exercise that gets your heart, blood vessels, and lungs working hard! A fast, fun, and affordable way to strengthen your heart and take control of your fitness.

Maintenance is Key

Just like natural teeth, dentures wear down over time. Your mouth and jaw experience change over time as well, so your dentures may become ill fitting. It is wise to see your denturist at least once a year to ensure your dentures continue to fit well and work properly. In most cases and with optimum care, dentures should last between 5 and 10 years, but may require adjusting or relining within that time frame. Being proactive with denture care is always more effective than waiting until you have a major problem and trying to backtrack.

Chiropractic for all Life Stages

Chiropractic care is used to restore proper function to the nervous system and aims to heal your body naturally by use of gentle spinal adjustments and conservative manual therapies. Chiropractic care is encouraged through all stages of life. Infants should have an initial gentle spinal adjustment to correct any trauma from birth and as they grow older, there is the inevitable falls and injuries. The elderly can be relieved of pain through adjustments by helping ease the tension brought on from common health ailments such as arthritis and inflammation in the joints, when other procedures are considered too risky due to their frail condition or medications they are on.

Product Review: Voxxlife Socks and Insoles

Many people find pain relief from wearing Voxxlife socks or insoles for conditions such as Morton’s neuroma. Morton’s neuroma is a thickening of the tissue around the nerves between the bases of the toes (usually between the third and fourth toes) that can cause a sharp, burning pain in the ball of your foot. Your toes may also sting, burn, or feel numb. It is more common in women and can be the result of wearing high heels or tight shoes. Voxxlife socks or insoles provide enhanced heel support and cushioning, slip prevention, and Voxx HPT® technology that increases strength and balance.

Cupboard Full of Supplements?

Over-supplementation is a growing health concern. Did you know that too much zinc can cause a copper imbalance? Symptoms of which can include fatigue, arthritis, and anemia. Vitamin C is being studied for the same effect. In an era of ‘fake news’, it is always disheartening to see clients who have relied on Google for supplement advice. A salesperson with product knowledge but no nutritional training isn’t ideal either. The contraindications with medications, ‘over-dosing’ on nutrients, and money wasted is staggering, and the individual may still have health issues. A properly trained health professional can help you navigate safe and effective supplementation.
