May Updates

Office Closings - the office will be closed on Monday, May 27th for Memorial Day.

I'v often told you that the latest research suggests that you should have your spine checked every 7-14 days.  Even newer research suggests that the frequency of care should be more often and when patients in the study were adjusted with more regularity, the benefits were more dramatic.  Watch THIS VIDEO I found and listen to a modern day chiropractic researcher explain the research in an easy, fun way with the references to the research at the end of the video. (This is the reason why I offer the month plan.)

Quote(s) - "We can live without food for weeks and water for days, but air for just a few brief minutes. While we spend a great deal of time and attention on what we eat and drink, we pay practically no attention to the air we breathe." -Patrick McKeown, The Oxygen Advantage

"Mouths are for eating, noses are for breathing." -Patrick McKeown, The Oxygen Advantage

If you suffer from seasonal allergies, read this --> "Breathing through the mouth causes blood vessels in the nose to become inflamed and enlarged. This, along with increased secretion of mucus, creates the uncomfortable feeling of nasal stuffiness. When the nose becomes blocked it is much more difficult to breathe through it, thus perpetuating the habit of breathing through the mouth. Continued mouth breathing results in a more permanent state of nasal congestion, thus completing the viscous circle. Nasal obstruction is one of the main symptoms of rhinitis and affects many people throughout the Western world on a daily basis. The most common treatments include the avoidance of triggers (such as pollen) and the use of decongestants, nasal steroid sprays, antihistamines, or allergy shots, but while these offer symptomatic benefits, they are effective only as long as treatment continues." -Patrick McKeown, The Oxygen Advantage
In this book, he talks about restoring your breathing pattern through your nose helps to minimize or even overcome seasonal allergies along with many other benefits.

Mother's Day is Sunday, May 12th so don't forget to honor her in some way!

Looking forward to seeing you and your family this month to check your spine for subluxations and adjust you to restore the connection between the brain and the approximately 70 Trillion tissue cells so that your family can function better and live life more abundantly.
