Chiropractic Turns 125!

The chiropractic profession is something that’s been around for a long time — and we’re so thankful and excited to be a part of a profession that is celebrating it’s 125th birthday today.

That’s correct, chiropractic treatment has been a viable drug-free option for a variety of maladies and health conditions since 1895, which in when Dr. Daniel David Palmer.

D.D. Palmer was a teacher and grocer who became a magnetic healer. Palmer opened his office of magnetic healing which was located in Davenport, Iowa — as early as 1886. Just nine years after opening his practice, D.D. Palmer gave Harvey Lillard that all-important, world-famous first chiropractic adjustment as of September 18, 1895.

Sinus Problems? Chiropractic Can Help!

Many of us don’t really think of our sinuses as something that needs our attention and should be maintained. Moreso, most people take that sort of thing for granted and view it as automatic. The truth is, there are a lot of factors that can play into poor sinus functionality, spine misalignment being one of them.

Your Spine and Your Sinuses

Your spine happens to be interconnected with many of your body’s operating systems, including the central nervous system, the GI system, not to mention your sinuses. Sitting with poor posture and lying in contorted positions all night can greatly affect your breathability. One visit with your local chiropractor can correct this issue and have you breathing more clearly immediately.

Your Sinuses and Your Diet

If you consume a lot of dairy, then your sinuses are likely to get bombarded with mucus. Cut down on dairy as often as you can and drink plenty of water each day to ensure proper sinus funtionality.

Tobacco Use

Smoking tobacco can also affect your sinuses and create mucus in your sinuses. Cutting down and quitting tobacco will greatly improve your respiratory system as well as your sinuses.

Contact Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center today to schedule your consultation, especially if you’re having sinus issues. Chiropractic treatment remains a highly effective drug-free option for a variety of conditions.

Pediatric Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic treatment for adults, teens, and seniors is something that is pretty much widely accepted and pursued in today’s health-conscious environment where more and more people are seeking drug-free treatments that help optimize their wellness.

The same is true for babies and young children — chiropractic treatment can still be hugely effective in treating pain, discomfort, and misalignment, which can still occur in infants and children.

Ever heard of growing pains? Babies are constantly growing and getting bigger, which puts a huge amount of stress on their little bodies. Since they don’t yet have strong muscles to hold their bodies up, misalignment can easily occur, which can result in sinus issues, aches and pains, sleep problems, behavioral issues, and more.

One simple chiropractic treatment for an infant can help clear up the sinus passageways, help ease any pain and discomfort, and help promote a better night of sleep. Chiropractic treatment has even been shown to improve an infant’s mood.

Labor Day Wellness Ideas

Just because it’s Labor Day weekend doesn’t mean you can’t double-down on your health and wellness efforts. After all, this time of year marks the 4th quarter of 2020. It’s a good idea to take a look at where you’re at currently with your health and wellness goals.

When it comes to Labor Day weekend, there’s a lot you can do to optimize your health and wellness.

First, get your mind right. Use this holiday weekend to start building your meditation practice, if you haven’t already. Meditation brings gifts like patience, inner peace, and tranquility. It’s a great way to let the dust settle in your mind — we recommend doing it right when you wake up in the morning for 10-20 minutes.

Yoga is another great practice to build and grow during this holiday weekend. Yoga is a fantastic way to relieve the tension in your body from your daily/weekly grind.

Get outdoors if you’re able — try to hit up a secluded spot instead of the most popular nature hike in the area, which will surely be packed over Labor Day weekend.

If you’re feeling any aches and pains from an active Labor Day weekend, contact Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center today to schedule your consultation. We have a long track record of treating injuries and daily pains and aches alike.

Healthy Fall Foods

When eating healthy it’s quite easy to simply resort to routine, eating the same dishes week in and week out. Lack of variety is actually one of the top reasons people revert back to dining out and shopping in the wrong aisles of the grocery store.

Below, Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center goes over a few healthy Fall meal options. By focusing on the season and changing the foods you eat according to seasonal shifts, you’ll be less likely to hit the diet doldrums.

Autumn Quinoa Salad

Make some nice quinoa, which is a healthy alternative to processed foods like pasta, and use that as your base, throwing in kale, spinach, and other healthy greens, not to mention baked yams, almonds, pecans, walnuts, or whatever other healthy ingredients you like. Toss this creation in a nice honey dijon dressing. If you want to stay on the extra healthy path, toss in balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil, if your diet agrees with this.

Soupe Du Jour! 

Get into making soups during the Fall and Winter seasons. For Fall, focus on pumpkin soups and include ingredients like broccoli and cauliflower for an extra health kick. Invest in a crockpot to make the whole process easy on yourself. You’ll be on stew street in no time!
