The New Year is here, so it’s time to get busy and make things happen. If you really want to make 2015 different from last year, you can. How? A number of ways. In fact, I’ve compiled a list I think you’ll want to look over because these are the top TEN resolutions for most people… every year!
Here they are:
Number 1. Lose Weight
Number 2. Get organized
Number 3. Spend less and SAVE more
Number 4. Enjoy life to the fullest
Number 5. Stay fit and healthy
Number 6. Learn something exciting
Number 7. Quit Smoking
Number 8. Help others in their dreams
Number 9. Fall in love
Number 10. Spend more time with family
I don’t know if any of these apply to you, but if you really want to stay fit, trim, keep fitting into the clothes you like, plus be healthy, make sure to make your appointment with me today. And please, don’t do what most Americans do and base your health on your symptoms.
Let me tell you about someone who was about 56 years old. He was in great shape, but he got a spider bite. Let me cut to the chase. Within a few weeks, he was NOT healthy anymore. Luckily he had taken care of his body and his health, because he almost died. Luckily, he was in great shape and not only survived but was able to regain most of his health. Health is something that you DO NOT WANT TO LOSE.
With the coming New Year come inevitable changes in insurance, deductibles and policy changes. It is your responsibility to know your policy and coverage changes. We cannot guarantee coverage since eligibility and verification are not a guarantee of payment.
Medicare Alert!! Medicare has authorized increases in reimbursement. Just as those of you on Social Security will be receiving a modest increase, we have also been given a modest increase in our Medicare fee schedule. This increase is effective January 1, 2015. You will be receiving a letter from our office notifying you of this fee change.
Paper Newsletter Opt out. As you know, we have decided to “go green” and not continue a paper mailing of our newsletter. However, I have had so many requests, especially from my older patients, who do not have access to the internet, or many of you who do not wish to receive e-mails from our office, I must reconsider that choice. Therefore, if you do not wish to receive a paper copy of future newsletters, you may opt out by calling our office or e-mailing through contact the doctor from my website at www.livepnfree.com .
As many of you know, my mother turned 100 in November. Not just made it to100 years but did it well. She is fully mobile, sharp as a tack and has very few complaints. She takes almost no medication, as I have been giving her natural equivalents like our Thermo Sea for her thyroid, Fusion Mineral drops, etc, instead of using harsh medications (shame on those of you with a laundry list of medications at half her age). She is a bit more stressed since my father passed a few years ago …at almost 99 but I encourage her to walk and exercise more to reduce it. So, she takes a walk in the morning and goes to the pool every day in Florida.
What is her secret? To be honest, genetics plays a big role in her being so healthy at this age. What can you do to compensate for poor genetics? PLENTY! Do I mean you can add 20 years to your given life span? No. BUT you can add life to your years.
Two examples of this are Toxicity and Inflammation.
Chronic inflammation can be responsible for many symptoms and ailments. From and allergies and fatigue to joint pain. I have a special product to address this problem.
Do you know why you can’t lose that weight from the holidays? That may very well be due to Toxicity. Fat is one of the boy’s ways of storing toxic chemicals you accumulate. If you want to more easily get rid of those excess pounds you must get rid of these toxins properly. I have a product to help you safely detoxify these chemicals from your body, as well as a metabolic system to help you lose weight in a healthy manner. Even if you don’t need to lose weight, you certainly need to eliminate toxins from your body. By the way, there are many studies to show maintaining a lower weight helps prevent the onset of many diseases, from diabetes to arthritis
I have many unique products to help reduce the ravages of aging and help support your health, such natural hormones for men and women, Thermo Sea, Fusion Minerals, detoxification, as well as metabolic weight loss systems.
Of course getting regular chiropractic adjustments is a critical part of any health regimen, just ask my mother!
Have more energy, better stamina, and better defense against disease. The CDC declared this a severe flu season and their flu vaccine would be a poor match for this year’s flu (in other words, very ineffective). If you keep your immune and general health optimized, you can survive the season, even without the flu vaccine.
“A Generous Diet”
Needing to shed a few pounds, Robert, and his wife Jennifer, went on a diet that had specific recipes for each meal of the day. They followed the instructions extremely closely, dividing the finished recipe in half for their individual portions. Robert and Jennifer felt terrific and thought the diet was wonderful; they had never felt better, nor did they ever feel hungry. As time progressed, Robert and Jennifer realized that they were, in fact, putting on weight and not losing it. They decided that they ought to check the detail of the recipes just one more time. It was then that they found their error. There, in small print, Robert and Jennifer saw, to their horror: ‘Serves 6’.
Ways To Stay Healthy In 2014
1. Maintain healthy eating habits. Avoid fad diets like the plague; to get all the nutrition the human body needs, eat carbs, protein, and fat (yes, even fat!) at every meal. By doing so, you’ll have a healthy heart, healthy brain, a healthy nervous system, and a fully functional immune system. Eating highly varied foods will also help insure you get all the vitamins, minerals, oils, and enzymes your body craves.
To lose weight, you must burn more calories than you consume. That’s all there is to it. With the exception of sweets, eliminating one area of the food pyramid from your diet won’t replace the need to simply consume fewer calories, but I’d also recommend getting your hormones in check.
Avoid skipping meals, which is hard on the body. Some people even recommend eating up to 6 mini meals a day instead of 3 large ones, which can sustain energy and steady blood-sugar levels; however, many people end up turning their “mini meals” into junk food sessions and end up consuming not just more calories, but emptier ones. Be honest with yourself before making this choice.
If you want to work on portion control, eat low energy-density foods (i.e. more substance, fewer calories). Fruits and vegetables, for example, are packed with not only vitamins and minerals, but also water and fiber, making them take longer to digest and keeping you full longer.
Drink more pH water. This helps flush metabolic wastes to keep your metabolism in top shape. Water can also help you feel fuller, so drink at least a half-gallon (2 liters) of water every day (or more if you are active or live in a hot climate). This is very important.
2. Sleep well every night.
Adults should get 7 to 9 hours daily, whereas school-aged children should get 10 to 11. One of the absolute most important ways of improving the quality of your sleep is to do it in complete darkness, as even small amounts of light interfere with the chemicals that tell your body to rest. If you can’t eliminate the light in your room, wear an eye mask. Another one of the best ways to improve your sleep is to exercise.
Sleeping is also a good way to prevent overeating. A study by The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition demonstrated that men who only slept for 4 hours consumed, on average, 500 more calories than they did after sleeping for 8.
3. Stick to an exercise regimen. If you don’t want to pay for a gym membership, try strength-training at home. The muscle you develop will help increase your metabolism: the bodies of muscular people burn MORE calories even while they’re at rest. To keep your heart in shape, do some walking at least once a day. One particularly effective way to improve your cardiovascular health is to do interval training, which means alternating between low-and high-intensity activity. This has been shown to be a quick and extremely effective way to improve heart health and endurance. (Anyone over the age of 60 or who has heart disease, high blood pressure, or arthritis should consult their doctor before attempting interval training.)
4. Pursue your passions. No, not everyone can make a living playing sold-out concerts, traveling around the world trying new foods, or churning out bestselling fantasy novels, but that doesn’t mean you should give up on your dreams. Set some time aside to practice an instrument, do art, take photos, build models, weld, bake gourmet cakes, or whatever else enriches your free time. If you want to learn something NEW, take an evening or weekend class. If you can’t think of anything interesting off the top of your head, take the time to find a hobby.
If you’re convinced that there isn’t enough time in the day to pursue any outside activities, try to cut back on a time-wasting activity like channel-surfing or hitting refresh on Facebook. If you get regular adjustments it’s going to help you feel better and be better as well. Chiropractic just works!!
Kevin was furious when his steak arrived cooked too rare. “Waiter,” Kevin shouted, “Didn’t you hear me say ‘well done’?” The waiter smiled. “Of course I did, sir, I can’t thank you enough, sir,” replied the waiter. “I hardly ever get a compliment.”
Breathing correctly is not only important for living longer but also to have a good mood and keep performing at your best. Let’s look at the benefits of deep breathing and why you should make it part of your everyday living.
Breathing Detoxifies and Releases Toxins
Your body is designed to release 70% of its toxins through breathing. If you are not breathing effectively, you are not properly ridding your body of its toxins i.e. other systems in your body must work overtime which could eventually lead to illness.
When you exhale air from your body you release carbon dioxide that has been passed through from your bloodstream into your lungs. Carbon dioxide is a natural waste of your body’s metabolism.
