All Celtic Sea Salt products will be on special in office. (10%) Off

Selina Naturally Celtic Sea Salts are traditionally harvested to preserve their natural balance of minerals – a balance that fits ideally with the natural composition of the "natural salt water" that makes up as much as 60% of the human body.

According to H.H. Mitchell, Journal of Biological Chemistry 158, the brain and heart are composed of 73% water, and the lungs are about 83% water (May 2, 2016).

The composition of the minerals in the water of the body are, not only sodium, but a natural balance of potassium, calcium, magnesium, and a host of other essential minerals. In fact, it is the ionic charge across the cell wall between sodium and potassium, often referred to as the sodium pump that creates the electric charge that accounts for life itself.

How To: Stress-Less!

This month, our "Half-Hour to Health" was on "Freedom From Stress" and we have the following tips to help you cope with stress naturally:

What causes stress to the body & why are we talking about it?

1) Environment- Pollution, weather, toxins from the genetically modified foods, chemicals in foods/products

2) Social- Finances, jobs, demands for your time and attention, loss of loved ones

3) Physiological- Aging, lack of exercise, poor nutrition, inadequate sleep

4) Thoughts- Your brain interprets changes in your environment/body and determines when to turn on the “EMERGENCY” response. Your thoughts determine your reality! Change your thoughts change your world!

The great news is Chiropractic helps to switch off the stress response and allows relaxation to occur! As soon as the interference is gone the brain stops sending those emergency messages to your nervous system.  3 minutes after you shut off these signals the fight or flight response burns out.  All of these functions will return to normal levels.

We came up with THE BEST TECHNIQUE of managing stress!

BBreathing – Deep breathing kicks in the healing part of the Nervous System (parasympathetic)

The 5 second breathing technique – breathe in through the nose for five sec, hold for five sec, out through the mouth for five sec, hold the breath out for five and repeat process 2-3x.

E- Exercise – One of the simplest most effective stress reducers is exercise.  Studies show that exercise alone helps reduce stress – Goal: walk 20 minutes a day three to five days a week.

S-Sleep – Most Americans do not get enough sleep, compounding stress in the body – this means going to bed before 10 pm and stopping the use of all electronics before bedtime. One of the most common themes that we have seen with our practice members today is not getting good restful peaceful sleep.  Example – “The nothing box.”  Tips for improving sleep include: Dark rooms, as quiet as possible and eight or more hours when possible. 

T – Talk – Self talk is huge when it comes to stress.  Most people talk worse to themselves then they would ever let anyone talk to them.  Having the right kind of self-talk is important – we create our world by our words.  In every situation look for the positive that can come out of it and don’t jump to the conclusion that it is bad or negative. For example Car mechanic – Someone comes in after they had their brakes repaired and says that they still don’t work – The mechanic can jump to conclusions like they don’t like me or I am a bad mechanic and neither of those may be true. 

T- Time – All processes take time – small changes today result in large changes over time , Your problem is not your problem it is your attitude about your problem that’s the problem.  If there are stressors in your life identify them and do not sweep them under the rug because over time they can get worse if they are not addressed.  Once you have identified the stressor come up with several ways in order to deal with the issue.  Not having a plan is a plan to fail.

Action Steps: 1) Get Adjusted 2) Practice the BEST technique 3) Share this with as many people as possible so that everyone can have the freedom!

Here is our video recap, enjoy!

How To: Stress Less During the Holidays

How to do approach the Christmas season? Is your calendar booked with something each night of the week? Spending time with friends and family is one of the focal points during this season, but we have found that stress levels can also be at an unreasonably high level during this time as well. Dr. Bob shared his tips to help us stress-less on our sister site, druglessdoctor.com & we have them here for you today:

I have read that stress creates over 80% of all sickness and disease today. Due to all of the instant gratification, stimulation and communication in society today it seems that the days tend to fly by! I know from my own perspective the week skips from Monday to Friday in a blink. Our schedules are filled with day to day chores, family and personal responsibilities and opportunities to help our friends, relatives and co-workers.

For the purpose of this entry, we will focus on two general responses to stress. There can be a positive stress, celebrating a victory or a negative one – living with the consequences of a mis-step or reset. People living today, and this is a general statement, receive happiness from the positive response and appear to be taught from the negative ones. Unfortunately, the consequences of a negative stress often times can create distress for years and even generations.

Stress has a variety of impact possibilities to the physiology of the body; it literally cause a pit in your stomach, hives on your skin, loose stools, hair loss, sleepless nights, dry mouth, back pain, headaches, “tics” and about five hundred other responses. So, what does stress really do; it literally pushes buttons that speed up the adrenal gland causing more cortisol which races the heart, increases blood pressure, burns muscle and starts your metabolism running.  How you handle the stress impacts your immune system response. Stress impacts several areas in the body and has a negative impact on your health especially when it is constant and sustained as some of you may endure during the Christmas season.

Stress tends to cause an acid pH which burns up your minerals. It is wise to add additional minerals from the beginning of November until the spring time. We use Multi Mins™, three to six a day on an empty stomach. Body signals for mineral need would include cold sores, leg cramps at night, itchy skin, legs twitching in bed, craving salt and/or sugar.

Stress exhausts the adrenal glands which is a very important natural pain reliever, hormone maker and blood sugar controller. Adrenal fatigue is common with the additional hours, schedules and commitments during the holiday season. I encourage our patients to take two ADB5™ upon waking and two at noon. Body signal for exhausted adrenal function include dizzy from a sit to a stand position, craving sugar or salt, back going out easy, a need to wear sunglasses, pain and inflammation.

Stress during the Christmas season tends to rapidly burn through B vitamins; you may notice sore muscles, difficulty in staying asleep, crying easy, noise sensitivity.  B vitamins are also exhausted additionally with sugar consumption. I encourage our patients to take three Bio-B Complex™ a day for three months. If you notice pain after snow shoveling you would be wise to substitute the Bio-B Complex to Bio-B 100’s™, four to six a day. The Bio-B Complex is very potent and should only be taken for three months at the maximum.
