It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas - and this time of year always seems to have us asking “Where did 201_ go?” December is always an important month for many reasons, but especially when it comes to health. We want you to finish the year strong, being the new year with fresh perspectives and thinking, but also, we want to make sure you are healthy throughout the holiday season.Read More
It was a great week spending time in our community. We were able to connect with our friends at the YMCA French Creek about keeping your 2018 health goals, and then spent time at CryoActive Rocky River for their "New Year-New You" event, shot some new videos, and then wrapped it up at Heinen's in Rocky River for their Wellness Fair.
We would love to connect with you too - email email@example.com and we can arrange a health talk for your organization.
We always try to bring the most relevant and timely health information to our practice members and digital community, and we kept on receiving requests to do a #H2H on blood sugar results. Please watch this month's recap below (Turn Up Volume). Underneath the video, you will find the audio recording (perfect for driving in the car) and Dr. A and Dr. C's notes. Please join us in October for our #H2H on Women's Health.
Nutrition 101 - What your blood tells you!
1. Why are a group of chiropractors talking about nutrition? Works hand & hand with chiropractic!
2. Nutrient toxicity vs nutrient deficiency
3. Stats: USDA -Using USDA data, found that broccoli, for example, had 130 mg of calcium in 1950. Today, that number is only 48 mg.
4. Well rounded lifestyle is the best nutrition – focusing on vegetables, proteins, and good fats.
5. Why would someone use supplements and what are the best kinds?
6. Wellness Nutrition vs Therapeutic Nutrition – Wellness is something that all people should do and therapeutic nutrition is based on some type of analysis or specific testing.
7. Our Top Wellness Items
B. Vitamin D: (Bio-D Mulsion Forte) Vitamin D is important for immune and bone health. Most Americans are deficient.
D. Probiotic: BioDoph 7 – cultures digestion with billions of good bacteria.
What is a simple way to evaluate therapeutic nutrition? Blood work – It’s the recipe for what is going on in our bodies!
1. CBC with a differential – immune system, red blood cells, platelets, anemia’s
2. Comprehensive Metabolic Panel – evaluates many minerals, enzymes, sugars needed for common body functions such as digestion, acid base balance, and liver function.
3. Lipid Panel – evaluates fats and cholesterols in the body- brain and body need oils- the building blocks.
4. Thyroid Panel – Helps to assess metabolism in the body, body signals- temp, wt. loss, hormonal function, energy.
5. Urinalysis – Evaluates how our kidneys are procession the metabolites from digestion.
Other types of tests: HA1C, VIT D, TPO, Nutritional Microscopy, ACG, Bio-Communication, Test kits, EFA Bloodspot Test, Female Hormone Panels, saliva tests.
Drugless Action Steps:

We love that we are able to help many individuals restore optimal health function every day without the need to prescribe medication. And this week, we have one practice member who shares how we have been able to help her:
I did not realize how physically bad I felt until I started feeling better. Dr. Anthony, Dr. Casen and Dr. Bob have made a huge difference in my overall health. By taking a holistic approach focused on diet, exercise and adjustments, my lower back and leg pain has significantly diminished. I am able to be more active, which has helped me lose weight, increase my energy level and live more fully.
If you are on the fence, jump off (carefully) and come and visit us! We promise, you will be glad you did!
Diarrhea can happen to the best of us, and in this video, Dr. Anthony shares one product we recommend in our practice that can help you feel better. We have the product available in our Westlake and Elyria chiropractic practices.
