Car washed, vacuumed, wax done, oil change, alignment these are all things we do to take care of our beloved cars. So why do we make all the excuses in the book for something we are indefinitely stuck with, our bodies. Our bodies are with us through everything yet we many times feed it junk, refuse to give it exercise and keep it out of alignment. While when our body breaks down we attribute this breakdown to I guess I'm getting old. I am not saying as you age your body stays the same however I am saying you don't have to suffer in pain when there are solutions.
Those individuals that take the time to take care of their body has been proven to have a better quality of life. They are not hunched over at 80 or dying in pain. Why deal with pain when you don't have to. Chiropractic care can help with a huge range of problems. Some problems include: fibromyalgia, sinus issues, TMJ pain, pain during pregnancy, neck pain, back pain, plantar fascitis, extremity pain. Chiropractic care also helps your organ systems function better because it affects your nervous system. Since your nervous system is the control center when you are able to keep this system healthy the rest of your systems (such as digestive, respiratory, cardiovascular) can then function better as well.
Our goal at Journey Family Chiropractic is to get you to a healthier you. Your soon to be healthy body will thank you.
Several years ago the newest craze was juicing. I was so surprised at the traction juicing fruits and vegetables was getting. So what is juicing. Juicing is the process in which you take fruits and vegetables and transform them into juice. If you are trying to give the gut a break then this may work for you, if it is just a day to a few days. Juicing although can be beneficial in short spurts, it is not suggested for long term nutrition. You should also combine fruits and vegetables with your juicing because juicing only fruit can spike your blood sugar. The disadvantage of juicing is it removes many of the nutrients plus the insoluble fiber that the fruits and vegetables provide. These nutrients and fiber helps our body stay regular.
So what about good ole blending. Blending is perfect for those who want to keep all the nutrients. It breaks down the fruits and vegetables without removing the essential nutrients and fiber in it. With the fiber intact blending allows you to stay full longer and keeps your digestive system regular.
At our home everyone drinks a smoothie daily. The trick to having a healthy green smoothie is add more vegetables than fruit. My favorite smoothie recipe is:
2 cups of Spinach
1 cup of Kale
1 whole carrot
1/2 cup Silken tofu
1 whole avocado
1 3/4 cup of water
Blend, and ENJOY!!
Ps. Wondering what kind of blender to use. This blender has not let me down.
