Hey there,
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                                                                            2015 is here
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 .


How to live past 100jay's mom

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.”


breathingBreathing 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.

Dear patients and friends,


Ah yes, the holiday season is upon us. Let’s make this a fun addition and just jump right into it with some facts about winter!

Cool Facts

  • According to the Guinness world records, the tallest Christmas tree ever cut was a 221-foot Douglas fir that was displayed in 1950 at the Northgate Shopping Center in Seattle, Washington. That’s one big tree. I wish I could have seen that one.
  • The traditional three colors of Christmas are green, red, and gold. Green has long been a symbol of life and rebirth; red symbolizes the blood of Christ, and gold represents light as well as wealth and royalty.
  • According to data analyzed from Facebook posts, two weeks before Christmas is one of the two most popular times for couples to break up. However, Christmas Day is the least favorite day for breakups. I always wonder why that is?
  • Contrary to popular belief, suicide rates during the Christmas holiday are low. The highest rates are during the spring.
  • The world’s largest Christmas stocking measured 106 feet and 9 inches (32.56 m) long and 49 feet and 1 inch (14.97 m) wide. It weighed as much as five reindeer and held almost 1,000 presents. It was made by the Children’s Society in London on     December 14, 2007.
  • Christmas trees have been sold in the U.S. since 1850.
  • Christmas trees usually grow for about 15 years before they are sold.
  • Hanukkah is spelt differently by different people. Some name it as Chanukkah while the majority of people name it as Hanukkah.
  • As per the Western calendar, the date for the commencement of Chanukah varies every year.
  • Lighting of Menorah is the main Hanukah tradition.
  • The Hanukkah candles are added onto the special candelabrum from right to left, but are lit only from left to right.
  • ‘Hanerot Hallalu’, an ancient Hanukkah song is recited or sang while lighting the candles.
  • According to Chanukkah tradition, the candles on the candelabrum should not blow out until the end of the festival.
  • Traditional Hanukkah food is cooked during the festival. Oil is the key ingredient of the foods, which is a sign of tribute to the miracle of purified oil.
  • Gifts are also exchanged during the festival of Hanukkah. This tradition is probably adapted from the Christmas tradition of gift giving.
  • Gambling is considered almost a sin. However, a gambling game called as “dreidel” is a popular Hanukkah tradition. People play this game with a square spinning top. However, the game is not played for hefty sum, but for pennies or chocolate coins.

The 4 strategies to limit the holiday eating damage.


Some of these are taken from Tim Ferriss’ book The Four Hour Body, which I highly recommend if not for actionable health ideas, but entertainment value.success

Stick to a Paleo Diet…Mostly

Paleo principles will go a long way to keeping you from gaining excess weight around the holidays. The rolls, lasagna, potatoes, bread, and other starchy foods are often empty calories and you can easily skip them for an extra serving of veggies and meat. Unless you’re training for a marathon and carb loading, you don’t need the extra sugar. Sugar ages you. I’m not suggesting you skip these foods or dessert. Not at all. Instead, try eating paleo for the first two-thirds of the meal – then you can sample the desserts and high carb food. By mostly filling up on low carb food, you’ll stay full longer and avoid the highs and lows of the blood sugar roller coaster.

Eat Slower

It takes your body about 15-20 minutes to recognize that it’s getting full. So when you use the shovel method to scarf as much food as possible into your mouth, you’re consuming a lot more than you need (or really want). Focus on eating at a leisurely pace, sipping water, lots of water after every few bites, and actually talking to your family and friends. You’ll end up eating less while still being completely satisfied. Give it time to catch up.

More Fat, Less of a Glycemic Response

When you eat more fat with your meal, you’ll experience less of a glycemic response. This is a fancy term that simply means your blood sugar won’t spike as dramatically as it would if you drank a Coke on an empty stomach. Again, Coke ages you as fast as smoking does, so be careful with your intake of it. In practical terms, eating a serving of nuts as your appetizer will blunt the blood sugar spike. I prefer to dip veggies into a creamy ranch or cheese dip to get some fat (nuts don’t appeal to me as an appetizer…). Plus, the added fat will help you absorb the vitamins from the vegetables.

Stay Hydrated

Did you know that your body can confuse being thirsty with being hungry? Slight dehydration will trick your brain into thinking you’re hungry, when you’re really not. Prevent the confusion by drinking enough good, clean water on your feast day so you won’t overeat. While a lot of fluids will hydrate you, try not to drink your calories with sweetened tea or soda (see tip #1 on eating paleo). Stick to good old clean pH balanced water – you’ll be better off without all that added sugar and you’ll eat less, and gain less.




     “My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?”
                                                                     ― Bob Hope

Will you love me in December as you do in May,
Will you love me in the good old fashioned way?
When my hair has all turned gray,
Will you kiss me then and say,
That you love me in December as you do in May?
 James Walker quotes


 Do Not Eat this Type of Bean

While beans are actually one of the healthiest carbs sources out there, loaded with fiber and protein, there’s actually one variety of beans you should be AVOIDING at all costs:

Baked Beans.

Fact is, manufacturers of commercial “baked beans” are completely RUINING this health food by piling in sugars galore along with a slew of artificial ingredients.

Many brands are now even including high fructose corn syrup and numerous other corn ingredients, such as corn starch, in their products…bad news!

For example, a 1-cup serving of canned “baked beans” contains more than 20 grams of ADDED sugar on average while the same 1-cup serving of regular kidney beans, pinto beans, red beans, etc, contains only a gram or two of naturally occurring sugar.  BIG difference!

That said, when buying beans and adding them to your diet (which is actually a great choice), make sure to avoid commercial “baked beans” products and instead go with bean products that don’t add all the extra junk.

Some great varieties of beans and legumes are:

Pinto Beans
Red Beans
Navy Beans
Lima Beans
Black Beans
Black-eyed Peas
Marrowfat Peas
Butter Beans

And there are even some natural packaged versions of the above listed beans and legumes that add a number of healthy and natural seasonings to spice them up a bit.  The lesson here is to avoid “baked beans” in favor of the plain stuff (which you can then spice up at home) and when buying anything packaged, take a good, hard look at the ingredients and nutrition facts.

If it’s got added sugar and artificial ingredients, skip it!

Doctor Rugoff’s October (Fall) Newsletter


Dear Patients and Friends,

Well it’s October, and this is a great time of the year for the kids if you let them EAT the candy they gather on Halloween. That candy is chock full of sugar, so if I were you, I’d try to keep their consumption to a minimum. Teach your children the importance of taking care of their bodies when they’re young, and they’ll do it when they get older.

But aside from that, believe it or not, the newspaper ADS I’m showing you below were actually found in newspapers from all over the world:

~ Braille dictionary for sale. Must see to appreciate.

~ FOR SALE BY OWNER: Complete set of Encyclopedia Britannica. 45 volumes.

~ Excellent condition. $1,000.00 or best offer. No longer needed. Got married last weekend. Wife knows everything.

~ Help wanted, singer for rock band. Must be female or male.

~ For Sale: Hope Chest, brand new, 1/2 off, long story.

~ Help wanted: adult or mature teenager to baby-sit. One dollar an hour.

~ Lost: small brown poodle. Reward. Neutered. Like one of the family.

October Quotes

Then summer fades and passes and October comes. We’ll smell smoke then, and feel an unexpected sharpness, a thrill of nervousness, swift elation, a sense of sadness and departure.” – Thomas Wolfe

Count the garden by the flowers, never by the leaves that fall. Count your life with smiles and not the tears that roll. ~Anonymous

Summer makes me drowsy. Autumn makes me sing. Winter’s pretty lousy, but I hate Spring. ~ Dorothy Parker

For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together.  For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad. ~Edwin Way Teale

>>>JOKE of the MONTH<<<

On their anniversary night, the husband sat his wife down in the den with her favorite magazine, turned on the soft reading lamp, slipped off her shoes, patted and propped her feet and announced that he was preparing dinner all by himself.

“How romantic!” she thought. Two-and-a-half hours later, she was still waiting for dinner to be served.

She tiptoed to the kitchen and found it a colossal mess. Her harried husband, removing something indescribable from the smoking oven, saw her in the doorway. “Almost ready!” he vowed. “Sorry it took me so long — I had to refill the pepper shaker.”

“Why, honey, how long could that have taken you?”

“More’n an hour, I reckon. Wasn’t easy stuffin’ it through those dumb little holes.”




A Belated Birthday! (September 18 Chiropractic Founder’s Day)

Have you ever been so busy that time just flew by, and before you knew it, one or two days had passed and you forgot about someone’s birthday? Well I did that last month and so I want to make that up to you today. Chiropractic had its birthday last month and of course, me being busy, I forgot to mention it in the last newsletter.

old chiropracticChiropractic began in 1895 when Daniel David Palmer, of Iowa, performed the first chiropractic adjustment on a partially deaf janitor, Harvey Lillard, who then mentioned a few days later to Palmer that his hearing seemed better.

This was in September of that year, and therefore September is the birthday month I’m referencing this month.

This miracle with Mr. Lillard led to Palmer opening a school of chiropractic two years later.

The word “chiropractic” was coined from Greek root words by Rev. Samuel Weed. In 1896, D.D. Palmer’s first descriptions and underlying philosophy of chiropractic and he described the body as a “machine” whose parts could be manipulated to produce a drugless cure.

Palmer found that spinal manipulation on joint dysfunction/subluxation seemed to improve his patient’s health. He described the effects of chiropractic spinal adjustment as being mediated primarily by the nervous system. He said, “get the pressure off the delicate nerves, and the body then can help itself.”

Chiropractors conducted political campaigns to secure separate licensing statutes, and eventually succeeded in all fifty states, from Kansas in 1913 through Louisiana in 1974

Why Instant Rice May Be Healthier Than Regular Rice

You probably already know that, generally speaking, brown rice is a healthier option than white rice. It contains more fiber, vitamins and minerals while also having a lower glycemic index.

You’ve probably also heard that the “slow cook” version of brown rice is much healthier than the “instant” versions, which have been pre-cooked to allow for faster cooking times. After all, anything that’s “easy” has to give you some sort of health trade off, doesn’t it? So perhaps like many looking to obtain a trim, tight waistline, you labor over the stove for 45 mins to prepare your healthy brown rice.

But alas, this simply isn’t true. Did you know that many brands of “instant” brown rice contain just as much fiber as regular brown rice and have even been tested to have a lower glycemic index than regular versions? In fact, the ONLY brands of brown rice to score a glycemic index in the 40’s are ALL instant! The regular versions generally score in the 60 – 80s range.

Now, with that said, this same “quick cook” phenomenon doesn’t apply to other foods like oatmeal, where the glycemic index generally increases significantly when comparing instant versions vs their regular counterparts.

But when it comes to brown rice, it seems that there is little negative trade off and actually some positive benefits to gain with a lower glyce mic index. Not to mention, it’s ready in a few minutes instead of nearly an hour!


Although, to most Americans, eating bugs sounds like a crazy thing that only young children or daredevils on reality TV might do, bugs are actually a mainstay—even a treat—in the diets of people around the world. And the UN’s Food and Agricultural Organization is saying that more of us should think about bugs as food.(There are even several species that are Kosher, mentioned in the Bible)
GETTING PAST THE ICK FACTOR: Although eating insects has been popular in Africa, Mexico, South America and Asia for centuries and continues to be, the Western world is just now warming up to the idea. Here’s some advice for getting past that ick factor about bug eating.
• First, remember when sushi first became trendy in the United States in the early 1980s? Many people said, “Yuck! No way!!!” But sushi gradually became widely popular. Now it’s even sold in supermarkets.
• Second, guess what? You’re already eating them. When fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans and grains are harvested and processed, bugs get ground up along with everything else. The United States allows for 60 insect pieces per 3.5 ounces of chocolate, 30 pieces per 3.5 ounces of peanut butter, five fruit flies per one cup of fruit juice. In fact, it’s been calculated that we each eat about one pound of insects per year without knowing it.


If you simply can’t get past the idea of eating the flies in your soup but want to get a new source of protein into your diet, you might want to try cricket flour treats or, if you are feeling more adventuresome, get your hands on some delicious bugs to cook with. Places to order edible insects can be found on Martin’s blog page Where to Get Bugs. What can you make with them? Start with these simple grasshopper-treat recipes, one spicy, one sweet, from The Insect Cookbook: Food for a Sustainable Planet…

Dr.'s headling

Dear Patients and Friends,

          Here’s something you may want to know as the Summer disappears and the Fall sneaks up upon us. When does summer end and fall begin? Simple answer is… The official last day of Summer is September 22nd. September 23rd marks the first day of Autumn. This is not the same for every country in the world though.  Here are some more things to think about. The most amazing machine in the history of the ‘natural’ world is the HUMAN BODY. If you were to purchase this amazing one-of-kind machine “it” would cost Billions of dollars. In fact, more money than you’ll ever have ever. And once you brought it home, you would treat it nice and reverently because of the cost, wouldn’t you?

However special and valuable your body is, think about how you treat it. I’m guessing you’re not treating it as good as you could. You’re not nourishing it with whole foods everyday, seven days a week. Here’s what I’ve noticed. We still do not pay ‘a lot of attention’ to it, even though we know we should.

This is a good thing I want to do, so I am going to take you on a short tour of your body and remind you of its spectacular abilities. I want you to think about what would happen if there was some interference to your nervous system that controlled all your bodily functions and how important those functions are!!!

Morning Diet Tip

If you’ve been following the advice of including a good portion of your daily carbohydrate intake at breakfast, you might want to skip your morning coffee, unless it’s decaf, that is. Why?

Well, the recommendation to consume ample carbohydrates at breakfast is due to the fact that glucose tolerance, insulin sensitivity and your ability to process carbohydrates are at their peak in the morning – basically, your body is primed to “deal” with carbohydrates quite well during the first few hours of the day, and that ability continues to decrease as the day goes on. So where does coffee come in? Well, quite a few studies have shown that caffeinated coffee intake (along with carbs) decreases glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity, sabotaging your generally “good” ability to process carbohydrates in the morning.

Here’s just one of many studies:  Caffeinated coffee consumption impairs blood glucose homeostasis in response to high and low glycemic index meals in healthy men.
Moisey LL, et al. Am J Clin Nutr. 2008 May;87(5):1254-61.

CONCLUSION: The ingestion of caffeinated coffee with either a high or low GI meal significantly impairs blood glucose management and insulin sensitivity compared to the ingestion of decaffeinated coffee.

In the end, decreased insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance = more insulin, less fat burning, and more fat storage; three things you DON’T want if you’re looking to shed those unwanted pounds.

 Is Google a woman? That’s what one of my friends asked me recently. I said, “I don’t know.” He then in turn said, “Well I’m asking you that because Google is like a woman. It won’t let you finish a sentence without coming up with other suggestions for you.”  JUST KIDDING!!!!

A lawyer runs a stop sign and gets pulled over by a sheriff. He thinks he’s smarter being a big shot lawyer from New York and has a better education than a sheriff from West Virginia. The sheriff asks for license and registration. The lawyer asks, “What for?” The sheriff responds, “You didn’t come to a complete stop at the stop sign.” The lawyer says, “I slowed down and no one was coming.” “You still didn’t come to a complete stop. License and registration please,” say the sheriff impatiently. The lawyer says, “If you can show me the legal difference between slow down and stop, I’ll give you my license and registration and you can give me the ticket. If not, you let me go and don’t give me the ticket.” The sheriff says, “That sounds fair, please exit your vehicle.” The lawyer steps out and the sheriff takes out his nightstick and starts beating the lawyer with it. The sheriff says, “Do you want me to stop or just slow down?”

  Your long term care at this office is based on 3 things:

1. I’ll look at your current objective findings, and your diagnostic findings, and then…

  2. I’ll use my experience with other patients who’ve had similar nerve interference patterns and how they have progressed over time.

3. Then I’ll consider those characteristics that are unique to you, including your age, how long you’ve had your nerve interference, your general health history, genetic factors, emotional stress, job activities, exercise regimen, water intake and your diet.

How does Soap work?

Soap, water and oil are all made up of molecules. Some molecules are hydrophillic, (hydro=water and philic=loving) these molecules are attracted to water. Some molecules are hydrophobic, (hydro=water and phobic=fearing), they are repelled by water.

Molecules that readily mix with water are hydrophilic. Molecules that readily mix with oil are hydrophobic. Since we all know that water and oil do not mix, then we also know that hydrophilic and hydrophobic compounds do not mix.soap

Most of what we call dirt is grease or oil which will not come off with just water. This is because oil and grease are non-polar, which means they will not dissolve in the water.

Soap can mix with both water and with oil. Why? The soap molecule has two different ends, one that is hydrophilic (polar head) that binds with water and the other that is hydrophobic (non-polar hydrocarbon tail) that binds with grease and oil.

When greasy dirt is mixed with soapy water, the soap molecules arrange themselves into tiny clusters called micelles.

   The water-loving (hydrophilic) part of the soap molecules sticks to the water and points outwards, forming the outer surface of the micelle.

The oil-loving (hydrophobic) parts stick to the oil and trap oil in the center where it can’t come into contact with the water. With the oil tucked safely in the center, the micelle is soluble in water. As the soapy water is rinsed away the greasy dirt goes along with it.

August Healing Hands Newsletter

Dr. Rugoff’s August Patient Newsletter


Dear Patients and Friends,

August is upon us and dare I say it, Fall is just around the corner. While you are still enjoying the hot weather and sunshine, what are you doing to prepare yourself for the rigors of the colder weather? As you start thinking about servicing your furnace, your car, and getting the snow blower ready, what about your body? It’s time to get in for your “tune up” before the leaves start falling and you hurt your back raking.

A lot can be said about chiropractic and the miracles of chiropractic. Here’s what a chiropractic patient had to say about his case and how it helped him.

“About thirty years ago, I had a football injury. Over the next several years, I began to have pain in my left knee, a constant dull ache in the lower back on the right side and sinus trouble. I went to my medical doctors for help and they said I would have to live with this the rest of my life. The diagnosis was a permanently damaged nerve. The physicians suggested corrective surgery.

I became very depressed. I couldn’t sleep at night and I was very difficult to live with. I was going through hell and so was my family. It was then that I was convinced to try chiropractic. After my first few visits to my chiropractor, I felt a great deal of relief. Now I feel like a new person.

My back is greatly improved, without surgery, and it seems as if I never even had knee problems or sinus trouble. It changed my life. When you feel good, you look good and you develop a healthy attitude. I wasn’t very long before everyone noticed the great improvement in me. My only regret is that I waited so long.”

— Andrew Sanderson

How Do You Keep Avocados From Turning Brown?

Avocados are one of the best flab-fighting fats, but it’s unlikely that you’ll eat an entire avocado in one sitting. So how do you keep that leftover avocado from turning brown?

Well, first let’s talk about why avocados turn brown. Like apples or potatoes, they oxidize when exposed to air. Once you cut into an avocado, you’ll never be able to completely stop the oxidation process, but you can dramatically slow it with a few quick tips and tricks:

1. Cut the avocado with a ceramic or plastic knife. Metal actually accelerates the oxidation process. This is good if you are eating them quickly.

2. Try lemon or lime juice. Citric acid is a powerful antioxidant; rub a little juice around the exposed flesh and you’ll significantly delay the browning effect. Works, but not completely and for only a day or so.

3. No lemon or lime? Use oil. Oil is another great buffer to oxygen. Use in place of lemon or lime juice when you don’t have any handy. Olive is best but it will make your guac a bit more oily.

4. Water. Huh? That’s right! This one works exceptionally well for guacamole. Place your leftover “guac” in a plastic container and press down to remove any air pockets. Add a half inch of water on top and seal with an air-tight lid. The water creates a barrier between the avocado and the air, keeping your guacamole fresh and 100% green for 24 hours or more! When ready to eat some more, just drain the excess water and enjoy. Works like a charm!


What’s Wrong With Egg Whites Only?

Go to a health bar in most Gyms and they have all kinds of healthful vegetable juices and smoothies. One problem though; They only offer egg whites, no whole eggs.

You see, most people are totally confused and brainwashed into thinking that whole eggs are “bad” for you and that egg whites are somehow the epitome of health. And while there is nothing necessarily “wrong” with egg whites (they’re a quality protein source), the YOLKS are where the majority of an egg’s nutrition lies.

-The yolk contains more than 90% of vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants contained in an egg

-The yolk contains ALL the fat, and it’s super healthy, hormone-balancing fat (fat is not bad for you)

-The yolk contains HALF the protein, and is actually needed to balance out the amino acid profile found in egg whites

Why in the world would anyone throw out all that nutrition? Just another case of misinformation to blame!

Bottom line, whole eggs are premium, quality nutrition, and even better, they’re one of the most inexpensive forms of fat-burning, health-boosting nutrition around. Even organic, free range eggs come in at less than 50 cents for 10 grams of protein and more vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants than you can count.

But won’t eating whole eggs increase your cholesterol levels? No. Your body is smarter than you think, and if you eat more cholesterol your body will just internally produce less. If you avoid cholesterol in your diet, your body will just make more. In the end, cholesterol levels will remain pretty constant over a wide range of dietary intakes. Besides, there are plenty of studies showing that whole eggs actually increase the HDL “good” cholesterol for a more optimal, healthful cholesterol ratio.

Scrambled, hard-boiled, over easy, sunny side up, in a salad, as part of an omelet…there’s no shortage of ways to enjoy an egg!
