Today's Chiropractic's message
Your body is the world's greatest drugstore. It makes every chemical you need to live a long and healthy life.
Chiropractic's purpose is to help your body function as it is meant to function - permitting it to be balanced so it may work at its peak and manufacture its own drugs. If your spine is unhealthy, your ability to function optimally and produce your own balance of natural chemicals will be impaired.
Meanwhile, remember to:
Eat, Move, and think Well!!
There is only a few diets that I recommend because they work to sustain health, but the main one is the:
There are a number of supplements and foods that "may" be beneficial for colds and influenza, but I believe they should be used only as an adjunct to other healthy dietary and lifestyle measures. But now is the time to: Eat healthy, get sunshine, get sleep, reduce stress, get rid of environmental toxins, and get adjusted!

Plastics to Avoid
#3 Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) commonly contains di-2-ehtylhexyl phthalate (DEHP), an endocrine disruptor and probable human carcinogen, as a softener.
#6 Polystyrene (PS) may leach styrene, a possible endocrine disruptor and human carcinogen, into water and food.
#7 Polycarbonate contains the hormone disruptor bisphenol-A, which can leach out as bottles age, are heated or exposed to acidic solutions. Unfortunately, #7 is used in most baby bottles and five-gallon water jugs and in many reusable sports bottles.
Tips for Use:
*Sniff and Taste: If there's a hint of plastic in your water, don't drink it.
*Keep bottled water away from heat, which promotes leaching of chemicals.
*Use bottled water quickly, as chemicals may migrate from plastic during storage. Ask retailers how long water has been on their shelves, and don't buy if it's been months.
*Do not reuse bottles intended for single use. Reused water bottles also make good breeding grounds for bacteria.
*Choose rigid, reusable containers or, for hot/acidic liquids, thermoses with stainless steel or ceramic interiors.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF FISH OIL
Cardiovascular Health Fish oil from supplements and dietary sources has been shown to provide support for healthy triglycerides and vascular relaxation. Fish oil is associated with positive effects on lipid metabolism, blood flow, platelet function, endothelial tone and homocysteine metabolism. Musculoskeletal Support Numerous double-blind trials indicate that fish oil promotes joint mobility and joint comfort, in part by maintaining healthy prostaglandin, cytokine and leukotriene production.Epidemiological research suggests that fish consumption is associated with healthy bone mineralization. In studies, the combination of fish oil and calcium supplementation promotes healthy bone composition in the elderly. Cognitive/Emotional Health Epidemiological and clinical research indicates that fish oil supports positive mood, mental function and memory. By promoting healthy neuronal cell membrane function and blood flow, fish oil facilitates oxygen and nutrient delivery to the brain.Infants and children born to mothers who had supplemented with fish oil demonstrate healthy cognitive capacity.
Fish oil has a soothing and anti-inflammatory effect for the gastrointestinal tract.
Skin Health Omega-3 fatty acids protect keratinocytes and skin fibroblasts from free radicals and immune mediators generated by sun exposure. Additionally, these essential fatty acids help promote elasticity and hydration for smoother looking skin.
Eye Health Studies suggest that fish oil, particularly DHA, promotes visual acuity and hydration.
